More guilty pleas expected in KU ticket scandal By Mark Fagan mfagan@ljworld.com

High: 25

Another former ticket manager for Kansas Athletics Inc. and her husband are set to plead guilty to a scheme that converted stolen basketball and football tickets into tax-free cash through sales by ticket brokers.

If Charlette and Tom Blubaugh admit their guilt next week as scheduled, only one defendant would remain in the case that has sent seven former department employees to face charges in federal court: Ben Kirtland, former associate athletics director for development, whose trial for conspiracy is scheduled to begin Feb. 15.

Charlette Blubaugh and her husband would join four other defendants who already have agreed to testify, if necessary. “She’s just looking forward to getting this over with,” said John Rapp, one of Charlette Blubaugh’s attorneys. The Blubaughs — Charlette, who

had been an assistant athletics director, and Tom, who had been a paid consultant — are scheduled to plead guilty to conspiracy to commit wire fraud, punishable by up to 20 years in prison. Charlette Blubaugh’s hearing is set

THE BIRTHPLACE OF THE KANSAS DEMOCRATIC HEADQUARTERS in Lecompton is a site that might benefit through a study of recommendations for the Douglas County Commission on how to best establish a framework for preserving our natural and cultural heritage.

Report gives heritage spending recommendations CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1A

This money isn’t a ence in terms of heritage con- sugar daddy for all servation,” said Ken heritage projects.”

Grotewiel, the group’s facilitator. To help decide which projects should be funded, the group thought importance should be placed on the urgency of preservation, if it connected sites or historical stories, had a large community impact, came with matching resources and was sustainable, educational, feasible, affordable and unique. The projects have to fall under five categories: ● Historic structures. ● Natural areas such as prairie land, woodlands, waterways and habitat restoration or preservation areas. ● Agricultural areas that include working farms and heritage farms. ● Places that tie into the themes surrounding Freedom’s Frontier National Heritage Area. More than 40 counties along the Missouri and Kansas border fall into this area for their involvement in the events leading up to the Civil War, the struggle for freedom and the push to move the nation westward. ● Pre-settlement history. The categories and criteria were intentionally broadminded. “We didn’t want to exclude people by setting up artificial barriers,” Grotewiel said.

— Facilitator Ken Grotewiel Along with establishing guidelines on what projects would qualify, the task force is recommending that the county become a Certified Local Government through the National Park Service, which would allow the county to tap into federal funding and advice from national experts. To become a certified local government, the county would have to create the Heritage Conservation Council. This newly formed council would be the body that would administer the grant application process for the local projects and pass along recommendations to the County Commission on what projects should be funded. The hope is for the County Commission to approve projects by the end of the year. “In the end we have to see where the resources are,” Grotewiel said. “This money isn’t a sugar daddy for all heritage projects. It’s really money to help supplement efforts already being made and to help leverage other funds.”

Kobach proposes voter ID bill CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1A

his successful campaign for office, alleged there were many instances of voter fraud in Kansas. He said election fraud is often hard to determine and occurs many more times than it is reported. “Election crimes have been documented across this state, but very little has been done to rectify the situation,” Kobach said. “After this bill is passed, Kansas will stand head and shoulders above the other 49 states in ensuring that elections are fair.” Kobach, an attorney who was involved in writing the anti-illegal immigration law in Arizona, said, “When this bill passes, Kansas will be to voter fraud what Arizona is to

illegal immigration.” State Rep. Lance Kinzer, ROlathe, one of more than 30 co-sponsors of the legislation, said the measure has strong support in the Legislature. Gov. Sam Brownback, a Republican, has said he supports photo ID to vote, but he hasn’t commented on other aspects of Kobach’s proposal. But House Democratic Leader Paul Davis of Lawrence said Kobach’s proposal was a “solution in search of a problem” because there have been few instances of voter fraud in Kansas. Davis added, “Kris Kobach should follow the lead of previous secretaries of state and work to make voting easier for Kansans, not more diffi-

cult.” Kobach said his bill also closes a “loophole” found in other states’ voter ID bills by requiring verification for mail-in ballots. Under his bill, when applying for a mail-in ballot, a person must provide either a Kansas driver’s license number, or the voter’s non-driver’s license identification number, or a photocopy of a current photographic document. No advance voting ballot may be mailed unless the voter’s signature on the absentee ballot request matches that on file in the county voter registration record, Kobach’s office said. — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

for 10 a.m. Jan. 27 before Judge Wesley Brown in U.S. District Court in Wichita, while Tom Blubaugh is scheduled to appear a day later. Rapp said his client’s hearing would be similar to those conducted last week involving two other co-conspirators: Kassie Liebsch, who succeeded Charlette

Blubaugh as ticket manager after several years as a systems analyst; and Rodney Jones, who had been an assistant athletics director in charge of the Williams Fund. Liebsch and Jones admitted to taking part in a conspiracy to divert tickets from Kansas Athletics, then provide the tickets to brokers in exchange for cash while avoiding payment of taxes on

the illegal proceeds. As part of their plea agreements, Liebsch and Jones joined two other former coworkers — Jason Jeffries and Brandon Simmons, who earlier pleaded guilty to failing to disclose the scam — in agreeing to cooperate with authorities and testify against others. — Schools reporter Mark Fagan can be reached at 832-7188.

Mysteries surround 1986 Baby John Doe CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1A

ing himself to the nursing staff at Lawrence Memorial Hospital. A Jan. 21, 1986, front-page Journal-World article was headlined “Abandoned child wins hearts of nursing staff.” He was described as “gorgeous” and “just the kind of baby everybody wants.” The child’s birth parents never came forward in the case, and the community watched closely as the baby worked his way through the legal system, looking for a permanent family. “There were just hundreds of people calling SRS wanting that baby,” said former Douglas County District Judge Jean Shepherd, who handled the case and eventual adoption. Shepherd, 25 years later, remains one of the few people who know what happened to the baby. But strict confidentiality laws prevent her from saying much about the adoption, and the adoption case file remains sealed.

Looking for a son Lawrence resident Ron Holzwarth has spent the last few years trying to find Baby John Doe. And as Holzwarth thumbed through old photos and newspaper articles about the case at his apartment recently, he said he believes he’s the baby’s biological father. “No question,” Holzwarth said, though he can present only circumstantial evidence for his claim. The day the baby was found, Holzwarth, who lived

across the street from the apartments, says he found a note on his door saying, “There’s a package for you across the street.” He didn’t think much of it until he read stories about the baby in the newspaper. The note, along with some other circumstances, led Holzwarth to believe a woman he had a relationship with abandoned the baby. Holzwarth said he was unaware the woman was pregnant and he hadn’t talked with her in months. At the time, Holzwarth said he debated going to police, but decided against it. “I alone had no way to support him, and I did not want him to be in the limbo of the foster care system,” he said. At this point, the only way to verify Holzwarth’s claim would be a blood test, and that would require Baby John Doe to contact Holzwarth. Every year since Baby John Doe turned 21, Holzwarth has placed an announcement in the Journal-World wishing him a happy birthday. In addition to a desire to reconnect after all the years, Holzwarth says he wants to convey some health-related information to the man, particularly about a genetic heart condition. Holzwarth remains active on websites such as Adoption.com, where he posts information with the hope that someday Baby John Doe will come across the website and contact him.

abandoned, Kansas didn’t have an infant safe haven law. But in 2006, the state passed the Kansas Newborn Infant Protection Act that protects mothers from criminal charges if, instead of abandoning a baby, they “surrender” it to a fire station, health department or hospital. In Kansas, mothers have used the law three times, once in 2008 and twice in 2010, according to Bill Miskell, spokesman for the Kansas Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services. Shepherd said the law was spurred by cases such as Baby John Doe, who spent his first few hours of life in a stairwell in the middle of winter. Despite that rough start, Shepherd said, things probably turned out OK for him. “This child probably does have a regular life and regular parents,” she said. Cook and Zans, who remain friends, said they kept up with the case at the time and even tried to visit the baby at the hospital, where they were questioned by authorities who suspected one of them might be the birth mother. More than two decades later, the two occasionally talk about the mysterious baby they found back in college. “We’ve always wondered what happened to him,” Cook said. “He was a beautiful baby.”

Strong earthquake hits Pakistan A major 7.2 magnitude earthquake rocked a remote area of southwestern Pakistan, shaking many parts of the country and causing tremors as far away as India and the United Arab Emirates. The quake was centered in Baluchistan province, the country’s most sparsely populated area, said the United States Geological Service, occurring at 1:30 a.m. local time Wednesday at a depth of some 50 miles. Its epicenter was in a remote area some 200 miles southwest of the Baluchistan capital of Quetta, said chief Pakistani meteorologist Arif Mahmood, not far from the Afghan border. The closest town to the epicenter was Dalbandin, with a population around 15,000 people, and is so remote that the nearby Chagai hills were the site of Pakistan’s 1998 nuclear tests.

R. Sargent Shriver dies at age 95 Bound by marriage to the nation’s most powerful political family, R. Sargent Shriver showed his commitment to service not through high office but with achievements no less historic: first director of the Peace Corps and leader of the war on poverty. One of the last links to President John F. Kennedy’s administration, Shriver, who announced in 2003 that he had Alzheimer’s disease, died Tuesday after being hospitalized for several days in his native Maryland. He was 95. A businessman and lawyer, Shriver helped his wife and Special Olympics founder Eunice Kennedy Shriver run the organization that allows mentally challenged children to participate in sports, and also spent two years as ambassador to France. 3 | FLORIDA

26 states join health care lawsuit Six more states joined a lawsuit in Florida against President Obama’s health care overhaul on Tuesday, meaning more than half of the country is challenging the law. The announcement was made as House members in Washington, led by Republicans, debated whether to repeal the law. The six additional states, all with Republican attorneys general, joined Florida and 19 others in the legal action, Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi said. The states claim the health care law is unconstitutional and violates people’s rights by forcing them to buy health insurance by 2014 or face penalties. 4 | LOS ANGELES

Girl in critical state after gun discharges A gun in a 10th grader’s backpack discharged Tuesday when he dropped the bag, wounding two students at a high school, including one who remained in critical condition, police said. Both teens were hit with the same bullet, Los Angeles deputy police chief Patrick Gannon said. John Deasy, deputy superintendent of the Los Angeles Unified School District, said there was no indication the student with the backpack had touched the gun before it discharged. Los Angeles police Lt. John Pasquariello said it was a crime to bring a gun to campus. The unidentified student was arrested and charges were pending, he said. 5 | WASHINGTON, D.C.

Officials: Lieberman to retire in 2012 Sen. Joe Lieberman, the 2000 Democratic vice presidential nominee who angered the party by backing Republican John McCain for president in 2008, will retire and not seek a fifth term, Democratic officials said Tuesday. Word of Lieberman’s decision came just hours after North Dakota Sen. Kent Conrad, a Democrat, announced he would retire. Lieberman is an independent who usually votes with Democrats. Republican Sen. Richard Lugar of Indiana on Tuesday said he plans to seek a seventh term next year despite a challenge from tea party groups. Lieberman’s seat could pose a pick-up opportunity for Democrats in a state where President Obama has been popular. Lieberman plans to announce his decision midday today at an event in Stamford, Conn. Lieberman nearly won the vice presidency on the Democratic ticket with running mate Al Gore in 2000.

Deciphera, Eli Lilly extend partnership for another year By Mark Fagan mfagan@ljworld.com

Deciphera Pharmaceuticals is extending its research partnership with Eli Lilly and Co. for another year. The extension, announced Tuesday, calls for Lawrencebased Deciphera to continue its oncology collaboration with Lilly, an arrangement that began in late 2008 and has led Deciphera to meet a discovery milestone for developing advanced molecules. Other milestones would be reached if the collaboration produced a specific drug candidate and sent it into clinical trials. Deciphera’s efforts aim for

preventing the growth and spread of cancer by focusing on kinase “switches” that control signals within cells. The companies say Deciphera’s work has identif ied molecules that “potently inhibit” a mutation responsible for about 60 percent of human melanoma. “This unique class of molecules has the potential to significantly improve outcomes for cancer patients, and we look forward to the identification of a development candidate with Deciphera during this research extension,” said Jonathan Yingling, Lilly’s vice president for oncology drug discovery, in a statement. Deciphera will receive “full-

time equivalent support” during the yearlong extension, said Dan Flynn, Deciphera’s CEO. Under terms of the original agreement, Deciphera was in line to receive up to $130 million in capital for reaching development, regulatory and sales milestones in each of four areas. Deciphera came to Lawrence in 2003, a year after being founded by Flynn and a business partner in Cambridge, Mass. The company now is based at upstairs 643 Mass., where it also has adjacent lab space secured last year. — Reporter Mark Fagan can be reached at 832-7188.

So long, Sunflower. Hello, Knology. The new owners of Lawrence’s Sunflower Broadband officially changed the name of the service Tuesday to Knology. The Georgia-based company — which bought Sunflower from the Journal-World’s parent company late last year — is changing signs, trucks and logos to reflect the new Knology brand name and its red corporate colors. The company uses the Knology brand name in its 12 other markets across the Southeast and Midwest. Knology CEO Rodger Johnson, who was in Lawrence for the kickoff, said consistency is important for marketing purposes. “But I hope everything else looks pretty much the same for customers,” Johnson said. “I hope the service and high quality that Sunflower folks established will continue. We think there will be minimal change as we go forward.” Johnson said customers also should not expect dramatic changes in rates that are charged for the company’s cable, telephone and Internet services. “I would expect the rate strategy would be very, very similar,” Johnson said. He said Knology, which is a publicly traded company on the Nasdaq stock market, belongs to Please see SUNFLOWER, page 5A

and Planning Commission on Tuesday evening recommended denial of a conditional use permit that would allow the construction of a strip club near area schools. The decision was reached after a half-hour of deliberation in a closed, executive meeting. The proposal for the club came from Lawrence businessman Zach Snyder, who owns the Douglas County gentleman’s club Paradise Saloon, north of Lawrence. The location of the proposed building would place

The club would also share a property line with the Jefferson West Unified School District. And although the planning commission’s recommendation does not bar the establishment from becoming part of the community just east of the Meriden

city limits, many area residents in attendance felt the issue was headed toward the right end. “It was perhaps a little frustrating,” said Duane Simon, who lives west of Meriden. “But the decision it came down to in the Mike Yoder/Journal-World Photo end I feel was a good one.

• Lawrence police arrested a 23-year-old Lawrence woman Tuesday morning on charges of aggravated battery and child endangerment after her boyfriend alleged she cut him on the elbow. Sgt. Matt Sarna, a police spokesman, said police were called about a disturbance at 4:30 a.m. at an apartment in the 600 block of Gateway Court west of Sixth Street and Lawrence Avenue. The boyfriend, a 24year-old Lawrence man, alleged the woman cut him with a knife during an argument. The man said he left the residence with his 2-year-old daughter and called police.

Motorcycle enthusiasts gearing up for 2011 Bike Show By George Diepenbrock gdiepenbrock@ljworld.com

Lawrence resident Jim Sneegas is still deciding which of his old motorcycles he will put in the 2011 Bike Show and Swap meet on Feb. 6. He has plenty of options. Sneegas owns Harley Davidson bikes from 1947, 1964 and 1972. He also has a Honda 1984 motorcycle and a 1972 police bike that was used in President Richard Nixon’s second inauguration in 1973. The Lawrence man, who is the newsletter editor for the Santa Fe Trail Chapter of the Antique Motorcycle Club, expects owners from

Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma and Nebraska of dozens of antique motorcycles to bring their bikes to the Douglas County 4-H Fairgrounds next month for the event, which is open to the public.

JIM SNEEGAS’ 1947 HARLEY DAVIDSON MOTORCYCLE is original, down to its side shifter and gas tank. Sneegas will enter one of his bikes in the 2011Bike Show and Swap meet.

“It’s just entertainment. You get to see the motorcycles that people have stashed away for years and years,” Sneegas said. All motorcycles entered must be 25 years old or older.

An estimated 800 people attended last year’s show and viewed about 70 bikes. Attendees can vote to select the best bike in each of six motorcycle classes: American, Asian, European, British, competition and other. A “Best of Show” trophy will be given to the winner, and door prizes will be offered. The entry fee is $10 per bike, but motorcycle collectors are required to pay the fees only on their first two bikes they enter. Doors at Building 21 open at 9 a.m. Feb. 6. Tickets are $5 for adults; children 12 and younger get in free. The chapter raises funds to provide assistance to area

charities, Sneegas said. Any vendors who want to attend the event can contact Sneegas before Jan. 25 at 842-4314 or e-mail him at hdsneegas@sunflower.com. Motorcycle collectors who want to enter can show up at the fairgrounds that morning before 9 a.m. — Reporter George Diepenbrock can be reached at 832-7144. Follow him at Twitter.com/gdiepenbrock.

the same cooperative that was used by Sunflower to negotiate fees the cable providers pay to cable networks. He said the amount of fees being asked for by regional sports networks was one of the larger issues in the cable industry. But Johnson said he absolutely understood the importance of having Jayhawk basketball on the airwaves in Lawrence. “Now that I’m a Kansas fan, I should say I think Ohio State is overrated,” Johnson said, referring to the team that is one spot ahead of the Jayhawks in the latest basketball polls. On other issues, Johnson said: ● The company is strongly committed to continuing the local programming on Channel 6 and the 6News broadcasts. Originally, Knology had planned to sign a contract for the Journal-World’s parent company to provide content for the 6News operations. But just prior to the closing of the sale, Knology decided to operate 6News on an independent basis. Johnson said the company now is using Channel 6 to determine whether local programming could be used to

strengthen their systems in other markets. “We are very excited about both 6News and Channel 6,” Johnson said. “We’ve made a very major commitment to make that a viable piece of our business structure in town. We’re going with all guns blazing to be successful with 6News and Channel 6.” ● Local layoffs that were announced near the end of last year were part of the process of eliminating redundancies between the two companies. Johnson confirmed the majority of the layoffs were in Sunflower’s customer service call center and accounting and finance positions. Knology operates call centers in Augusta, Ga., and Sioux Falls, S.D., that serve all of Knology’s markets. Johnson said he was confident customer service would not

decline as a result of the change. The company expects to have about 130 employees in Lawrence initially, and then “grow from there.” Previously, Sunflower had employed about 200 people. ● Extending broadband service to additional unincorporated areas of Douglas County will be studied. Johnson said the company since 2008 has been implementing an “edge out” strategy that attempts to broaden the geographical footprint of its markets. “Our business is very healthy, and we have the capital to consider investing in expanding the footprint in and around the Lawrence area over time,” Johnson said. Shortly after the name change Tuesday, questions emerged about what the change would mean for e-mail users who have @sunflower.com as part of their e-mail address. A company spokeswoman said that the @sunflower.com addresses would continue to work and that the company had not yet made any decision on whether it would attempt to change the addresses in the future. “We have not finalized any e-mail migration plan, so as of today, it is just going to be

Oskaloosa Middle School was the third in a series of public hearings, the last of which took place Jan. 4. The crowd was a little more sparse than crowds at past meetings, but the community support was the same among those who made it out. “We’re both pretty proud that that’s the decision they came up with,” said Brad McNary, standing with Charlene Hardee. “It’s been pretty drawn out.” “I think they had to do what

they did according to the law,” Hardee said. “Even though it’s frustrating because we had to come back three times.” The zoning and planning commission cited several reasons for recommending the denial for the conditional use permit. Among the reasons were a lack of sufficient parking spaces, a lack of parking for oversized vehicles such as buses and extended limousines as well as a datasupported concern that the club would bring an increase in criminal activities.

“I don’t agree with that club being built in that spot and allowed to operate,” Simon said. The zoning and planning commission will send its recommendation to the Jefferson County Commission for consideration. From there the commission will have a final vote on the matter, with the option to adopt the recommendation, deny it or return the issue for further consideration. — Reporter Joe Preiner can be reached at 832-6314.

Witness tells judge that HIV-positive airman’s wife condoned sex By Roxana Hegeman Associated Press Writer

WICHITA — An HIV-positive Air Force sergeant accused of having sex with multiple unwitting partners was encouraged by his wife, who had talked about opening a bed-and-breakfast for swingers, witnesses told a military judge Tuesday. Tech. Sgt. David Gutierrez also repeatedly denied being infected when partners asked about his HIV status, several witnesses testified during court martial proceedings at McConnell Air Force Base in Wichita. Gutierrez is stationed at the base with the 22nd Maintenance Operations Squadron. The airman is charged with 10 counts of aggravated assault — one count for each sexual partner — and with violating his squadron commander’s order to notify partners about his HIV status and use condoms. He also is charged with multiple inde-

cent acts, for having sex in front of others, and nine counts of adultery. Gutierrez pleaded not guilty Tuesday to all charges in the case. Military judge Lt. Col. William Muldoon rejected a defense attorney’s request to dismiss the aggravated assault charges as unconstitutional because similar case law on aggravated assault in effect says his client can’t ever have sex again. Among the prosecution witnesses to testify Tuesday was a Topeka woman who said she had unprotected sex with Gutierrez on multiple occasions, after she asked him whether he had any sexually transmitted diseases and he assured her he “was clean.” She said she would not have had sex with him had she known he had HIV. “I watched a brother die of AIDS,” she said. “It wouldn’t have happened.” The Associated Press is not naming the airman’s sexual

partners because they are alleged victims of a sexuallybased crime. The woman said Gutierrez’s wife also participated in the swinger lifestyle. “She was talking about opening a bed-and-breakfast for swingers,” the woman said. “She was all for it.” A Wichita man who said he participated in swinger events with the couple also testified that Gutierrez flatly denied being HIV positive and that the airman’s wife pushed him into having sex with others. One Wichita woman testified that she and her partner met Gutierrez on an adult website and later had dinner at his house, where she said the airman’s wife asked the couple, “Do you want to have dessert or do you want to play?” Gutierrez’s wife is not in the military and has not been charged with any crime. Prosecutors are expected to wrap up their case today.

CITY COMMISSION BRIEFS Residents protest West Lawrence hotel Lawrence city commissioners got the message loud and clear Tuesday night: There are plenty of West Lawrence residents who don’t want a hotel in their backyards. About 30 residents of the West Lawrence Neighborhood Association came to the City Commission’s weekly meeting Tuesday to protest a change in city code that would open the door for a hotel to be built in the industrial-business park near Bob Billings Parkway and Wakarusa Drive. No hotel actually has submitted any plans — nor shown any interest — to build a hotel in the area. But members of the city’s planning staff proposed a code change that would allow hotels in the city’s Industrial Business Park zoning district anyway. Staff members proposed the change because the city recently approved a change that allows a hotel to be built in the zoning district near the Hallmark Cards plant along the Kansas Turnpike. Staff members said while they were making that change, they wanted to determine if hotels made sense in other types of zoning districts. Neighbors came out in force to say a hotel did not make sense for the Bob Billings and Wakarusa area. Neighbors said a hotel would be too close to residential uses, and likely would create noise, light and traffic problems. Commissioners on a 5-0 vote sided with neighbors. Several commissioners said a small-scale, extended stay hotel may make sense in the area someday, but they wanted to see a specific plan before opening the door to general hotel development.

Industrial rezoning decision postponed Debate over a piece of proposed industrial property along the Kansas Turnpike northwest of Lawrence will have to wait for a week. Commissioners postponed discussion on a request to rezone 51 acres at the southwest corner of N 1800 Road and E 1000 Road from suburban home residential to general industrial. The property is just east of the Lecompton interchange on the Kansas Turnpike. A development group led by Lawrence businessmen Steve and Duane Schwada are seeking the rezoning so they can begin marketing the property as a potential site for industrial projects that need easy access to the turnpike. Several neighbors in the area have objected to the proposal, saying the area is too far from the rest of

Haitian dictator to be tried PORT-AU-PRINCE, HAITI (AP) — A judge will decide whether former Haitian dictator JeanClaude Duvalier will be tried on charges that include corruption and embezzlement for allegedly pilfering the treasury before his 1986 ouster, a lawyer for the exstrongman said Tuesday. A judge questioned the former dictator known as “Baby Doc” in an hourslong, closeddoor court session, defense attorney Gervais Charles said. The decision to move toward a trial makes clear that whatever Duvalier’s reasons were for returning to Haiti on Sunday, the government is poised to take the opportunity to seek justice for his 15-year regime, widely regarded as brutal and corrupt. Charles said the case is now in the hands of a judge of instruction who will decide whether there is enough evidence to go to trial, a process that can take up to three months. Several hundred Duvalier supporters gathered outside the court, burning tires, chanting slogans and calling for the arrest of President Rene Preval, then cheering as Duvalier left the courthouse and headed to his hotel under police escort.

Study shows students’ learning limited in college By Eric Gorski Associated Press Writer

A new study provides disturbing answers to questions about how much students actually learn in college — for many, not much — and has inflamed a debate about the value of an American higher education. The research of more than 2,300 undergraduates found 45 percent of students show no significant improvement in the key measures of critical thinking, complex reasoning and writing by the end of their sophomore years. One problem is that students just aren’t asked to do much, according to findings in a new book, “Academically Adrift: Limited Learning on College Campuses.” Half of students did not take a single course requiring 20 pages of writing during their prior semester, and one-third did not take a single course requiring even 40 pages of reading per week. That kind of light load sounded familiar to University of Missouri freshman Julia Rheinecker, who said her f irst semester of college largely duplicated the work she completed back home in southern Illinois. “I’m not going to lie,” she said. “Most of what I learned

this year I already had in high school. It was almost easier my first semester (in college).” Three of the five classes she took at Missouri were in massive lecture halls with several hundred students. And Rheinecker said she was required to complete at least 20 pages of writing in only one of those classes. “I love the environment, don’t get me wrong,” she said. “I just haven’t found myself pushing as much as I expected.” The study, an unusually large-scale effort to track student learning over time, comes as the federal government, reformers and others argue that the U.S. must produce more college graduates to remain competitive globally. But if students aren’t learning much that calls into question whether boosting graduation rates will provide that edge. The research found an average-scoring student in fall 2005 scored seven percentage points higher in spring of 2007 on the assessment. In other words, those who entered college in the 50th percentile would rise to the equivalent of the 57th after their sophomore years. Among the findings outlined in the book and report,

which tracked students through four years of college: ● Overall, the picture doesn’t brighten much over four years. After four years, 36 percent of students did not demonstrate signif icant improvement, compared to 45 percent after two. ● Students who studied alone, read and wrote more, attended more selective schools and majored in traditional arts and sciences majors posted greater learning gains. ● Social engagement generally does not help student performance. Students who spent more time studying with peers showed diminishing growth and students who spent more time in the Greek system had decreased rates of learning, while activities such as working off campus, participating in campus clubs and volunteering did not impact learning. ● Students from families with different levels of parental education enter college with different learning levels but learn at about the same rates while attending college. The racial gap between black and white students going in, however, widens: Black students improve their assessment scores at lower levels than whites.

2 men charged with stealing more than 100,000 iPad users’ information NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Two men who authorities say were competing to impress their fellow hackers were arrested Tuesday on federal charges they stole the e-mail addresses of more than 100,000 Apple iPad users, including politicians and media personalities. The theft and the AT&T secu-

rity weakness that made it possible were revealed months ago, and U.S. Attorney Paul Fishman said there was no evidence the men used the swiped information for criminal purposes. Authorities cautioned, however, that it could theoretically have wound up in the hands of spammers and scam artists. Daniel Spitler, a 26-year-old

bookstore security guard from San Francisco, and Andrew Auernheimer, 25, of Fayetteville, Ark., were charged with fraud and conspiracy to access a computer without authorization. Fishman said the men and their cohorts were engaged in “malicious one-upsmanship” as they sought to impress each other and others online.

BUSINESS AT A GLANCE Bill would require use of E-Verify TOPEKA — A bill was filed Tuesday that would require state and local governments to use a federal database to verify an employee is authorized to be in this country. House Bill 2026 would extend the requirement to bidders, contractors and employers doing business with governmental entities. If approved, violators of the proposal would be banned from attempting to obtain a public works contract for two years. The bill would require use of the E-Verify system, which is a database available to employers that is administered by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the Social Security Administration. Supporters of E-Verify say it will help keep out illegal immigrants, but critics say the system has holes and could result in businesses being unfairly punished.

Alvamar reopens talks with potential buyers By Mark Fagan mfagan@ljworld.com

Alvamar Inc. no longer has a contract to sell its two Lawrence golf courses and other recreational assets and operations to out-of-state investors for management by a national operator. But that doesn’t mean Alvamar leaders are giving up on the deal just yet. “We are optimistic,” said Bob Johnson, chairman of Alvamar’s board of directors. “We are hopeful, but we don’t know whether it is actually going to happen or not. The interested buyer continues to express the belief that the sale will happen … but as I like to tell everybody: When you have a real estate contract, that doesn’t mean you have a sale. Until the money changes hands, you don’t have a deal.” Such an exchange — Alvamar owners had listed the assets in October for $6.5 million — was to have occurred by Saturday, according to a contract signed in December. Despite having signed all paperwork necessary since then to make the deal go, Johnson said, the money has not yet been transferred. That’s why Alvamar’s board reopened discussions Tuesday with two other potential buyers, ones who had expressed interest before Alvamar signed the contract that expired last weekend, Johnson said. “They’d said, ‘OK, fine. If

that deal doesn’t work out, let us know,’” Johnson said. “We’ve let them know where this is.” While Johnson and other Alvamar leaders have declined to disclose the identity of the pending purchasers, Johnson disclosed some additional information Tuesday: The group is pursuing the acquisition of five course operations in all, of which Alvamar would be one; and Billy Casper Golf Group would be the investors’ designated manager for Alvamar, should the sale go through. “If it’s going to happen, it will happen pretty soon or we’ll be moving on — getting on with our lives, so to speak,” Johnson said. “It’ll be days, not weeks.” — Schools reporter Mark Fagan can be reached at 832-7188.

Pound foolish Cutting state funding for community mental health services isn’t a good investment in the state’s future.

K

ansans understand that the state is facing a difficult budget year, but even in a tough year, some cuts just don’t make sense. Eliminating more than $15 million in funding to community mental health centers in Kansas is one of those cuts. The state’s largest mental health fund already had been slashed by 65 percent ($20 million) between 2008 and 2010. Gov. Sam Brownback’s proposed budget “saves” the state $10.2 million by completely eliminating the state aid fund for community mental health centers. The fund is the only one that covers costs for people who cannot afford to pay for services. It also is the only fund that helps community mental health centers cover the costs of crisis care and other services not covered by Medicaid. In addition, the Brownback budget eliminates $5 million in funding from the state’s tobacco settlement for the Family Centered System of Care, a program that supports children receiving mental health care by coordinating those services with families, courts and other service providers. The funding increases both the efficiency and effectiveness of those services, according to community mental health leaders. One of those leaders is David Johnson, CEO of the local Bert Nash Community Mental Health Center. Johnson said this week that the cuts included in Brownback’s budget would cost Bert Nash about $372,000. That’s a devastating hit for Douglas County that will be multiplied across the state. The greater hit, however, is the trickle down effect of reduced mental health services. More than half the inmates in the Douglas County Jail receive mental health services. Too often, jail becomes the last resort for people who don’t receive proper treatment for chronic mental illness. Many members of the homeless population in Lawrence and across the state also have mental health issues. A reduction in community mental health funding and services permeates schools, work places, hospitals and a variety of social services agencies. The inability of people to access the mental health services they need has a profound impact on both the health and safety of the state. The costs of supporting community mental health services pale by comparison with the costs to society of not providing that care: prisons, lost work productivity, family breakdowns, school failures. The state of Kansas closed mental hospitals in the 1980s and ’90s with the promise that people who were being treated there would receive even better services from communitybased agencies. Recent funding cuts, and the proposed additional cuts, for those community centers not only endanger the state’s ability to keep that promise; they eliminate services that could ward off problems that are much more costly to the state. Legislators must consider the long-term costs of this short-term budget fix.

Tax battles move to states The contrast between what Illinois Democrats did last week and what Republicans have done in Indiana, Wisconsin, Iowa, Virginia and New Jersey, could not be clearer. In Illinois, Democratic legislators and a Democratic governor pushed through a massive 67 percent personal income tax hike (and a 46 percent boost in corporate taxes), claiming an accompanying “cap” would mean no new spending. Sure. Illinois is caught in a trap of its own making, agreeing with unions (the Democrat base) to pay exorbitant amounts of retirement and health benefits to public employees the state cannot afford. Governors in nearby states are inviting Illinois residents and businesses to move from Illinois. No doubt many will accept those invitations, taking their money and their jobs with them. California is a failing state, having overpromised public-sector workers at the expense of the private sector. And it’s not alone. According to Bloomberg, “More than 80 percent of the nation’s 27 million state and local government workers and retirees are covered by public pensions. Yet the median state plan had enough money to pay just 76 percent of its obligations as of Aug. 20, 2010.” Data compiled by the University of Rochester and Northwestern University found that “six cities — Boston, Chicago, Cincinnati, Jacksonville, Fla., Philadelphia and St. Paul, Minn. — will run out of pension money by 2020.” States that have had enough have Republican governors who are committed to reducing spending and taxes. In his State of the State address last week, Indiana Republican Mitch Daniels, properly took credit for policies that have placed his state among the financially

strongest in the nation: lowest property taxes in the country and matching spending to income by eliminating “nice to do” programs, focusing instead on “must do” ones. Daniels noted, “Elsewhere, state government payrolls have grown, but here, we have the nation’s fewest state employees per capita, fewer than we did in 1978.” He said that during the current recession “at least 35 states raised taxes, but Indiana cut them. Since ‘04, the other 49 states added to their debt, by 40 percent; we paid ours down by 40 percent.” Other states went into the red, he said, but in Indiana “our savings account remains strong, and our credit AAA.” Daniels spoke of “protecting the taxpayer” and added, “whatever course others may choose, here in Indiana we live within our means, we put the private sector ahead of government, the taxpayer ahead of everyone, and we will stay in the black, whatever it takes.” Unless you’re a retired state employee in Illinois, you are probably on your feet shouting, “Yes! This is what I’ve been waiting to hear!”

President Obama and too many other politicians emphasize “public service” as if government work is superior to a vibrant private sector that creates jobs, goods and services people want. Gov. Daniels has the right priority: people and jobs first, government second. If Daniels hasn’t decided to run for president, he should. This is a platform that has not only worked in Indiana but, if adopted by the federal government (and other states), would work nationally. Many Democrats who voted for the Illinois tax increases were lame ducks who will pay no political price for their cowardly vote. Besides, it wasn’t their money. That’s why it’s so easy to spend. If politicians in other financially troubled states won’t follow Indiana’s example, people can move to states with lower taxes. But no one can escape the federal government. Short of term limits or regular turnovers in Congress until they “get it,” a more radical approach may be necessary. Suppose there was a groundswell of taxpayers who announced they will no longer pay for government and, in fact, will start reducing payments to government if politicians won’t significantly cut spending? That would get their attention. There aren’t enough prisons to house thousands, perhaps millions, of taxpayers who cry “enough” and demand that Washington live within its means. It’s time to starve the beast. If Dracula doesn’t get blood, he dies. If Washington can’t suck more money out of us and must stop borrowing, it will be forced to cut back, like so many have done in this recession. Anyone ready to lead this second American Revolution?

Violent culture

To the editor: I don’t know what led to the vicious attack on Rep. Giffords and the indiscriminate wounding and killing of many of her fellow citizens. A common thread for people who plan or attempt such acts is a sense of worthlessness, failure and powerlessness. The would-be attackers perceive the resulting notoriety as a validation that they are, however pathologically, competent. American culture does not exactly sanction acts of violence, at least against individuals, but we do glorify violence in films and television. We accept the use of violence in war for purposes of national or at least governmental policy, and we ignore or accept some of the violent effects of our decisions. The deaths of ChristinaTaylor Green and that of a 9year-old Afghan child killed by our bombs are equally tragic. Guns purchased in the United States are facilitating the narco wars in Mexico that killed some 30,000 people last year. We continue to allow the killing of people convicted of capital crimes despite the demonstrated inaccuracy of juries’ decisions, not to mention the incredible financial cost of the trials and appeals. Further, we as a nation maintain that citizens have an unalienable right to own and carry guns whose purpose is to kill large numbers of people: semi-automatic weapons with large ammunition clips capable of spraying bullets as did the killer in Tucson. Thus we make available the means and a perverted justifi— Cal Thomas is a columnist for Trication for acts of violence. It bune Media Services. is time to take a hard look — at ourselves.

Connect dots

OLD HOME TOWN From the Lawrence Daily World for Jan. 19, 1911: “Would it be more economical for Lawrence to purchase an automobile YEARS fire wagon or to establish another fire AGO station? This is a question which the IN 1911 Merchants Association is trying to solve. The present headquarters are very centrally located, but on long calls to the city limits, so much time is consumed in making the run that a blaze gets under great headway before the arrival of the fire fighters. An automobile truck, capable of making forty to sixty miles an hour, would enable the firemen to reach any section of the city within a minute or two after receiving the alarm.”

PUBLIC FORUM

Relief may be short-lived at KU Not surprisingly many folks at Kansas University are breathing a sigh of relief that Gov. Brownback’s proposed budget does not suggest further cuts to higher education, or at least appears not to. But I think that sense of relief may be a bit premature and misguided. Although the proposed budget does not provide for any direct cuts in university operating budgets it also does not solve university funding problems or leave the universities without serious indirect problems. First, of course, the Legislature need not follow the governor’s suggestions. Folks seem to assume that now that we have a conservative Republican governor and Legislature they will work together and that the Legislature will enact whatever the governor proposes. Kansas, like every state, is divided not only by politics but also by geography, regional interests and special interests. Higher education funding is still an easy target for legislators and there is no assurance that the governor’s proposals will be enacted without change. There’s a second danger that remains. Even if university operating budgets are not reduced in the coming fiscal year, this does not guarantee that the Legislature will not reduce state employee salaries or institute employee furloughs for all state employees. We should not forget that salary letters sent to university faculty and staff the

Mike Hoeflich Damage done to the “quality of primary and

secondary education will produce students who are less prepared for the university.” past few years have specifically included the possibility of such cuts or furloughs. The third danger universities face is that an effectively zero operating increase for another year means that deferred maintenance on university facilities remains inadequately funded. It also means that the state is doing nothing to deal with the radical increases in student tuition which continue to burden university students throughout the state. Maintaining the status quo in the state contribution to universities simply means that, as operating costs rise, students will continue to see their tuition rise. The cost of education continues to exclude more

and more Kansans from the opportunities education provides. The greatest threat to higher education in Kansas, however, is indirect. Although the proposed state budget does not cut university funding, the decision not to replace federal stimulus money for K-12 schools means radical cuts for primary and secondary education in Kansas. It’s hard to believe that further cuts in K-12 funding will not have a negative effect on the quality of education Kansas children receive. The majority of KU students come from Kansas and go through Kansas schools. Damage done to the quality of primary and secondary education will produce students who are less prepared for the university. Universities, in turn, will have to cope with poorly prepared students through remedial classes. The quality of the university depends upon the quality of its students. When the state harms K-12 education, it harms universities as well. Now is not the time to feel relief on the Hill. There are still major battles to be fought, and Kansas educators and all those who care about Kansas education must continue to fight to save our children’s future. — Mike Hoeflich, a distinguished professor in the Kansas University School of Law, writes a regular column for the Journal-World.

To the editor: Only marginally less despicable than the shooting rampage in Arizona has been the unseemly but predictable rush by a certain class of politicians, pundits, and reporters to politicize the shootings. Under the guise of helping us make sense of senseless violence, they invite us to connect the dots, no matter how widely spaced, between Sarah Palin (among others) and the Tucson shootings. Since connecting the dots seems to be the game of choice, let’s play along. First, let’s note that one of his former classmates described Jared Loughner as “left wing.” Assuming that to be true, let’s identify some new dots. 1. Which prominent lefty political leader said this: “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun”? 2. Which leading lefty blog drew up a list of Democrats, including Gabrielle Giffords, a conservative “Blue Dog” Democrat, to be “targeted” in the primaries? (Hint: The same blog hosted a diarist who said that Rep. Giffords was “dead” to him because she had voted against Nancy Pelosi.) 3. And which lefty organization drew up a map with bull’s-eyes over the districts of political opponents? The answers? 1. Barack Obama, 2. Daily Kos and 3. the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. So there you have it: Loughner was a lefty, and President Obama, Markos Moulitsas (“Daily Kos”), and the DCCC are all lefties who employed violent political rhetoric. Why the dots practically connect themselves. Do I personally believe this? Not in a million years — who could possibly believe such nonsense? Stephen Egbert, Lawrence

Did you know

Former treasurer takes Greensburg post GREENSBURG (AP) — Former Kansas state treasurer Dennis McKinney has a temporary new job in his hometown of Greensburg. KSCB radio reported that McKinney reached agreement with the city this week to serve 90 days as interim city administrator beginning Jan. 26. Greensburg officials McKinney are seeking a permanent replacement for city administrator Steve Hewitt, who’s leaving to become city manager in Clinton, Okla. Hewitt was a leader in the rebuilding of Greensburg after an E5 tornado struck the southwest Kansas community on May 4, 2007. The tornado killed 13 people and destroyed up to 90 percent of the town. McKinney is a rancher and former Kansas House minority leader. He was appointed state treasurer to fill a vacancy in 2008, after Lynn Jenkins was elected to Congress, but lost his campaign for a full term last year to Republican Ron Estes.

Reed steadies Jayhawks The NCAA required Josh Selby to sit out Kansas University’s first nine games for accepting extra benefits. Mario Little sat six games for the behavior that led to his middle-of-the-night arrest. Brady Morningstar lost his jumper 10 games ago. Tyshawn Taylor seemingly tightened up his game at the beginning of the season and then regressed. Travis Releford forced his way into the rotation with terrific all-around play, but sprained his ankle and has missed the past three games. Thomas Robinson has improved a great deal and has given the team an energy boost off the bench, but still travels too often and commits too many fouls. Elijah Johnson, suspended the first two games, has improved his shot and tightened up his turnovers, but hasn’t progressed as rapidly defensively. Even the reliable, consistent twins have had their downer moments, each with a temper flare-up that cost them minutes. Even with all the personnel changes, brought on by suspensions and injuries, and unsteady performances, Kansas has managed to make it through the first 18 games of its season undefeated and ranked second in the nation. When figuring out how the Jayhawks have negotiated through so many changes without changing the number in the loss column, don’t forget to send credit the way of the team’s steadiest presence, senior shooting guard Tyrel Reed of Burlington. A two-time Academic All-Big 12 first-team selection, Reed leads the team in minutes per game (27.7) and assists-toturnover ratio (2.9). He ranks second to Selby (2.1) with 1.9 made three-pointers per game and as a scorer ranks behind only Marcus (17.2) and Markieff (13.2) Morris and Selby (12.1) with 9.4 points per game. Unlike in years past, it’s more than just his long-range touch that motivates coach Bill Self to keep him in games for so many minutes. “I think I’m more of a complete player,” Reed said during a recent pre-practice interview. “I’ve been able to drive better and be more aggressive. I think that just comes with confidence and being a senior.” Reed already has earned his undergraduate degree and is enrolled in 12 credit-hours of classes. He intends to get an advanced degree in physical therapy at KU Medical School, but isn’t sure when he’ll do that. “I talked to the PT school and I can defer my acceptance for a couple of years,” Reed said. “I’m excited about that.” He’s excited because he might have the opportunity to play basketball professionally, which would enable him again to use the sport to pay for his education. Plus, he loves playing the game, and if somebody is willing to pay him to do that, why not? “I’d love to see what my opportunities are in that direction and just kind of go where the wind blows me,” Reed said. It’s likely to blow him to Europe or South America or to a professional league somewhere else overseas. “That would be OK with me,” Reed said. “Go see the world, experience some things that I wouldn’t otherwise have the opportunity to experience.” For now, he’s enjoying wearing the uniform he grew up picturing himself wearing.

KU’s Self ‘not too excited’ after win By Gary Bedore gbedore@ljworld.com

One of the 35 NBA scouts at Monday’s Kansas-Baylor basketball game briefly interrupted a Bill Self media session in a hallway in Ferrell Center. “Beautiful basketball, Bill,” the talent evaluator said as he walked briskly past KU’s coach, following the No. 2-ranked Jayhawks’ 85-65 victory over the Bears. “Thanks,” Self replied, before returning to the topic at hand — pretty, unselfish KU play that resulted in 53 first-half points off amazing 79.3 percent shooting. “I’m not too excited,” Self said. “This is not the same team I see in practice every day. We were better than what we’ve Where we been practic- are right now ing.

Two of KU’s guards produced big-time on the offensive end. Josh Selby scored 12 points off 5of-11 shooting (two of six threes) and Tyrel Reed 11 points off 4-of8 shooting (three of five threes). “We had four turnovers in the first four minutes and two the last 16,” Self said of the opening 20 minutes. “The ball really moved and they were crisp passes and we drove to pass. We played through the high post pretty well. That was a big key (in attacking BU’s 2-3 zone), playing through the high post.” The Jayhawks have seen a lot of zone defenses this season. “We did a good job of being patient and getting some easy baskets,” Self said. “You don’t shoot 79 percent unless you are able to get some shots inside. We shot the ball well behind the arc, five of nine the first half (seven of 18 for game), but we got a lot of baskets inside three and four feet, which is sometimes hard to do against the zone.” On the defensive end, guards Tyshawn Taylor (six points, four assists) and Brady Morningstar (no points, three assists)

Garcia, Robinson take charge for Free State By Clark Goble Journal-World Sports Writer

Unlike most of their young team, Free State juniors Lynn Robinson and Jackie Garcia had city showdown experience. That much was very clear in the Firebirds’ 44-35 victory at Lawrence High on Tuesday. With the score

tied at 30-30, Robinson and Garcia combined for the next eight Firebird points, giving Free State a three-point lead it wouldn’t give up. “They really carried us tonight and made tons of big plays on both ends of the floor when we needed them,” FSHS coach Bryan Duncan said. Robinson had 21 points to lead all

scorers. She often drove past LHS defenders before scooping the ball off the backboard, silencing the boisterous LHS crowd. LHS coach Nick Wood thought Robinson’s play was the difference in the game. “We sure as heck couldn’t guard Please see FREE STATE, page 4B

WOMEN’S BASKETBALL

Kansas faces challenge of No. 1 Baylor By Ben Ward Journal-World Sports Writer

While dominating her opponents earlier this season, Kansas University women’s basketball forward Carolyn Davis was BAYLOR asked how eager she was to be AT KANSAS tested by the taller, more physical forwards in the Big 12, like, When: 7 tonight say, Baylor’s Brittney Griner. Where: Allen Davis said she welcomed it at Fieldhouse the time, and heading into the TV: Cable channel 6 matchup with Griner and No. 1 Records: Baylor 16- Baylor — at 7 tonight in Allen Fieldhouse — she wasn’t about 1, 3-0 Big 12; to shy away from the question. Kansas 14-3, 1-2

“I like the challenge,” said Davis, who, like Griner, played high school basketball in Houston. “I don’t want to back down from it just because she’s 6-foot8. I think it’ll be fun how we can play against her and what I do against her.” This is the first time the KU women have faced a No. 1 team in Allen Fieldhouse. The Jayhawks have played the topranked team on the road once and four times at neutral sites. The Bears (16-1, 3-0) and their star sophomore will provide a big test for Davis and the Jay-

hawks. Griner, 6-foot-8, has an 88-inch wingspan. “She’s just a really special combination of size, length, and agility,” KU coach Bonnie Henrickson said of Griner, who averages 22 points and 7.4 rebounds per game. Last season as a freshman, Griner nearly led the Bears to their second national championship before falling to UConn in the Final Four — the only team they’ve lost to this season — and garnered national attention along the way thanks to her versatile play, dunking prowess and

noted scuffle with Texas Tech’s Jordan Barncastle. Like Griner, Davis has put up impressive numbers to begin her sophomore season: 19.1 points, 8.5 rebounds and a 67.5 field goal percentage, good for tops in the conference and second-best in the nation. And though the 6-foot-3 Davis has a tough assignment on defense, it will be just as tough to find ways to score over Griner, who leads the Big 12 in blocked shots at 4.9 per game.

His physical presence has lost its vibrancy, but his mind still races and his mouth still roars. His words drift and ramble and wander and sometimes fall off the face of the Earth.

Even at age 81, deeply in the autumn of his life, the owner of the Oakland Raiders can sit before a room filled with reporters and cameras and spend nearly two hours reminding one and all that he’s still the boss, still in charge of one of the NFL’s most intriguing franchises. And no matter the challenge he faces, whether in regard to his team or his personal health or pending legal issues, he remains in his soul a proud and defiant warrior. Making his first public speaking appearance in 16 months, Davis on Tuesday announced the promotion of Hue Jackson from offensive coordinator to head coach. Jackson, 45, becomes the 17th coach in Raiders history. Jackson, who joined the organization in January 2010 to manage what had been an anemic offense, faces a daunting task. He seeks to maintain the momentum for a team coming off its first non-losing season since 2002 and, moreover, he must try to satisfy perhaps the most demanding owner in sports. “I plan on being here a long time,” Jackson said, an obvious nod to the fact that Davis has dismissed five coaches in seven years. As much as the day was designed to introduce Jackson in his new role, though, it was Davis who towered over the proceedings at the team’s facility in Alameda’s Harbor Bay Parkway business park. It was Davis who did most of the talking. He explained his Jan. 4 dismissal of head coach Tom Cable, saying he was a limited coach whose personal life brought undue stress upon the franchise. Furthermore, according to Davis, Cable was dishonest. Seated next to Jackson at a table on the stage in the team’s largest meeting room, Davis alternately needled and toyed with reporters. Wearing a black leather pullover and a bandage above his left eye, he spoke with conviction though not always with clarity. What was clear was Davis’ vanity. He made pointed efforts to point out the depth of his contributions to Oakland’s most successful season on the field since reaching the Super Bowl eight years ago. “I did the draft,” he said, referring to one of the most impressive collections of rookies in Raiders history. Davis, to his credit, also shouldered some of the blame for the team’s declining fortunes, conceding that he has made some questionable decisions regarding coaches and playing personnel. The one thing that doesn’t change with Davis is his ability to provide a show. He is good theater and a marvelous public speaker. It’s as if he enters a private dressing room, opens a box, pulls out a happy face and puts it on. It was no different Tuesday, when Davis emerged to issue a reminder that he is firmly atop the Raiders’ organizational chart.

game left in the regular season and in the midst of the franchise’s worst slump in four decades. After winning his first six games of his rookie season, the Broncos lost 17 of the last 22, and the team also had several of issues off the field. McDaniels also was f ined $50,000 by the NFL after a videographer violated league rules by videotaping a San Francisco 49ers practice in London in October.

NBA Hawks 93, Heat 89, OT MIAMI — Josh Smith made a go-ahead layup with 34.7 seconds left in overtime, Joe Johnson scored 19 points and the Atlanta Hawks beat Miami on Tuesday night to send the Heat to a fourth straight loss. Johnson had a game-tying layup with 25.4 seconds left in regulation and two gamesealing free throws with 5.2 seconds remaining in overtime. Jamal Crawford also scored 19 for Atlanta. LeBron James scored 34 points and grabbed 10 rebounds for Miami, but missed a long three-pointer at the end of regulation and another 28-foot try as the shot clock was expiring late in overtime and the Heat down by two. Dwyane Wade finished with 27 points for the Heat, who got 16 rebounds — with no shot attempts — from Joel Anthony. The Heat had a chance to win it at the end of regulation after Johnson knotted the game, but chose not to call time-out for a f inal play. Instead, they worked the clock down and set up James for a 28-footer that banged off the side of the rim just before the buzzer. Miami had three gametying scores in overtime, the last of those coming when James made a three-pointer with 51.9 seconds left. The Heat didn’t score again. Atlanta got 15 points and 12 rebounds from Smith, 15 points from Mike Bibby and 11 from Mo Evans. The Hawks tried a season-high 31 threepointers, making seven. Eddie House scored 12 for Miami, and Mario Chalmers added 10. The Hawks played most of the second half without Al Horford, who sprained his right ankle early in the third and departed with six points and nine rebounds. Miami’s lead was 70-64 when Wade made a fadeaway jumper with 4:26 left, but on a night where neither team ever enjoyed much in the way of offensive flow, the Heat picked the wrong time to go cold.

Bibby’s fourth three-pointer of the game with 2:32 left got Atlanta within 72-70. Evans tied it a half-minute later with a pair of free throws, Smith hit two more to give the Hawks the lead, and Bibby made another for a 7572 edge with 1:23 remaining. That’s when James tried to take over. A pair of free throws got Miami within one, and he simply overpowered Bibby for a layup and foul to give the Heat a 77-75 edge — but Johnson sent the game into extra time. Anthony’s start — just the fifth of his career at power forward — was needed because Chris Bosh sat out with a sprained left ankle. James’ status for the game wasn’t clear until just before game time because he, too, has been hobbled by a sprained left ankle. “We do have versatility on the roster,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said before the game. “This is probably the time it’ll show the most, playing guys that weren’t necessarily playing big minutes, they’ll be able to step up and have their opportunity.” Anthony must have been listening. According to STATS LLC, only Dennis Rodman — who had 20 rebounds with no attempted free throws or field goals for San Antonio on Jan. 25, 1994, plus had an 18rebound, no-shot game for the Spurs three weeks earlier — had at least 16 rebounds in a game without ever trying a shot of any sort. Atlanta nearly held the Heat to single digits in the opening quarter, setting the tone for an offensively challenged night all around.

P I T T S B U R G H (AP ) — One is loud. One isn’t. One speaks his mind. One doesn’t. One has a Super Bowl title as a head coach. The other’s still in search of one. But don’t tell Pittsburgh’s Mike Tomlin that he’s not like New York’s Rex Ryan. The Steelers coach actually thinks there are similarities between the two. Who knew? Tomlin isn’t the type to brazenly predict his team will win the Super Bowl. And he doesn’t figure to ever make use of a weekly press conference to point out that the upcoming game is “personal,” as Ryan famously has during this postseason. Tomlin also works for an organization that would, in all likelihood, politely decline allowing HBO cameras to document the team’s training camp, as the Jets did this past summer for a reality series. But throw all that out for a second. During his weekly press conference Tuesday in advance of the AFC championship game between his Steelers (13-4) and Ryan’s Jets (13-5), Tomlin implied that if someone were given that kind of behind-the-scenes access

to his team, they’d discover that the Jets and Steelers aren’t that far apart. “Our styles are probably more similar than you would imagine,” Tomlin said. “Rex just has more fun with you guys (in the media).” What’s more, just as Ryan had several kind words for his counterpart the day before, Tomlin reciprocated the mutual admiration society Tuesday, offering a sincere, “I love Rex” when first asked about the former defensive coordinator of Pittsburgh’s rival, the Baltimore Ravens. Tomlin said there’s a lot more depth to Ryan than just the sometimes-brash, wisecracking, jovial coach who appears to be so much at ease in the spotlight standing behind a podium. “When you see past all of those things, this is a great football coach,” said Tomlin, who is in his fourth season with Pittsburgh. “He has the pulse of his football team, and he does a great job of motivating them. He’s very sound schematically in all three phases, and his glass is always half-full. I appreciate that.” While some might say

they’re growing tired of Ryan’s mouth, it’s working. The Jets are in their second straight AFC championship game, and Ryan has a chance to match Tomlin’s feat of winning a Super Bowl in only his second season as a head coach. Plus, the case could be made that Ryan’s occasional over-the-top antics are good for the game. After all, the Jets’ win over the New England Patriots on Sunday was the most-watched divisional playoff game in history, and it’d be naive to suggest the buildup Ryan helped create in the week leading up to it wasn’t part of that. Still, Tomlin — like his players did the day before — chose not to engage in any trash talking. Not the Steelers way, of course. “We’re in the AFC championship. Likes or dislikes really are irrelevant,” Tomlin said. “I think they’ve been pretty consistent about stating their intentions all year, which is to be world champs.

NEW YORK (AP) — The NFL can’t be upset with so many upsets in the playoffs. What better evidence is needed that the “anybody can win at any time” mantra is accurate when two No. 6 seeds are in the conference championship games?

Bobcats 83, Bulls 82 C H I C A G O — D.J. Augustin scored 15 points, Gerald Wallace had 13 points and 16 rebounds and the Charlotte Bobcats held off the Chicago Bulls. Boris Diaw and Stephen Jackson added 12 points apiece to help the Bobcats snap a three-game losing streak, with their last win coming at home against the Bulls last Wednesday. Derrick Rose scored 33 points to lead Chicago, but missed a shot at the buzzer. Ronnie Brewer had 12 points and Luol Deng added 10 for the Bulls, who were playing without injured forward Carlos Boozer — second on the team in scoring (20.1 points per game) and rebounds (10.1). The Bulls got a chance for the win after an official’s review gave them ball at their own end. Initially, a deflected ball had been awarded to Charlotte, but the review showed that the ball went off former Texas standout Augustin’s fingertips. After Kyle Korver’s driving shot was blocked out of bounds, Chicago got the ball to Rose, who drove the middle of the floor and shot a fadeaway over Charlotte’s Gerald Henderson Jr., but missed off the front of the rim. Wallace was called for a technical foul for tripping Brewer and Kyle Korver made the subsequent free throw to give Chicago a 74-72 lead with three minutes to play. Tyrus Thomas returned to action for Charlotte and had eight points and four rebounds against his former team.

KU MEN’S BASKETBALL

Releford expected back on Saturday Sophomore recovering from sprained ankle shadowed Baylor senior LaceDarius Dunn, the Big 12’s scoring leader, who hit for just 13 points off 3-of-9 shooting. “Brady probably guarded him 15 minutes; Tyshawn 20 (or so),” Self said. “We went triangle and two a couple possessions and (Anthony) Jones made a three. We got out of that (quickly).” Dunn needed a three with just 38 seconds left to extend his school-record streak of games with a three to 31. He made just one of three treys. “He’s terrif ic. The best scorer in our league,” Self said. “I thought we did a good job limiting his good touches, a good job of shadowing him with other guys off ball screens. The thing we didn’t do well with him and the whole team is we fouled way too much (BU hit 20 of 26 free throws to KU’s eight of nine). For the most part we did a good job of awareness of where LaceDarius was the whole time.” ●

Scout team excels: KU assistant Kurtis Townsend filled in for Self on Tuesday’s weekly Hawk Talk radio show. Self was out recruiting. Townsend cited some unlikely heroes who helped the Jayhawks shred Baylor’s zone defense. “Our scout team did an unbelievable job (at Sunday’s practice and Monday’s shootaround). Tyshawn mentioned last night how well they simulated Baylor’s zone

defense. He said it was so hard to score against our scout defense. They did an unbelievable job preparing us,” Townsend said. The scout team generally consists of red-shirts (Conner Teahan, Justin Wesley) and those players not in the regular rotation. ●

Funny stuff: Baylor’s student section broke into a wild rendition of “Peanut Butter Jelly Time” from Family Guy when Mario Little strolled to the free throw line in the second half. “I know Mario was getting ready to shoot the free throw and he started laughing,” Townsend said. “Somebody showed me the clip this morning. It’s pretty funny.” Little did sink both free throws on a night he scored 10 points in seven minutes. ●

Releford recovering: As Self said after Monday’s game, it looks as if Travis Releford, who missed the last three games, may play Saturday against Texas (3 p.m., Allen Fieldhouse). “He had the (left) ankle sprain (in first half of Jan. 9 game at Michigan). We thought he wouldn’t miss much time. It swelled up pretty good the two days after,” Townsend said. “He went through workouts 50 percent to game time (Monday). He’s been getting three treatments a day. I’d expect to see him on the floor Saturday.” — Assistant sports editor Gary Bedore can be reached at 832-7186.

HIGH SCHOOL BOWLING

FSHS girls win; boys second By Ben Ward Journal-World Sports Writer

The same pin seemed to be eluding Free State senior Justin Walthall. Even after he had toppled each one of the nine other pins with his steady, deliberate, left-handed roll, there would be one pin — the seven pin — standing in the back left corner of the lane. After each one of the nearstrikes, Walthall would shake his wrist lightly before setting up for his next shot and calmly hitting the spare. As Walthall knew and later explained, only a slight amount of spin from the release cost him a few strikes — of which he still had plenty. Walthall’s 654 series was the high on the day, as was his 230 game, but the Free State boys still fell to Gardner Edgerton, 2,451-2,287, at Royal Crest Lanes on Tuesday evening. “I was just thinking, stay slow,” he said. “And not rush myself. When I rush myself, I pick up too much speed and (the ball) doesn’t carry through the pocket.” The Firebird girls topped Garner-Edgerton, 1,986-1,701, behind a number of good scores, including Michelle Schieffer’s high series of 519. “Well, I was hoping to do a lot better because I’ve been doing really well at practice this week,” Schieffer said, just as her winning series

572 series for the boys, whose scores fell a bit short of their practice and early-season averages. But the bowling season, while short, is back-loaded in terms of reward; meaning, the entire season is essentially a buildup to regionals, where teams and individuals qualify for state. “When you see them come out in competition, you have to factor in the nerves,” coach Anita Carlson said. “And then you can work on whatever it

is they need to work on, whether it’s footwork or target shooting.” So even though the Firebirds left a few extra pins to be cleaned away on Tuesday, there are plenty more to be knocked down this season. “It’s very frustrating, but its part of the game,” Walthall said. “And you’ve got a brand new shot with your next frame. So slow down and get your next shot down.” ● Results on page 7B

her,” Wood said. “She was taking the ball and dribbling right to the rim.” Seemingly no one could stay in front of her, and even worse, there didn’t seem to be much defensive help inside. Wood called it a complete defensive breakdown. Free State also had some trouble containing the Lions’ best scorer, senior Tamiya Green. She finished with 15 points and 12 rebounds. But Duncan was pleased overall with his team’s defensive effort on Green. “She’s just a really good player, and really good players are going to have good nights like that,” Duncan said. The Firebirds (5-3) led, 1812, at half behind nine points from Robinson. They scored the first two buckets of the second half to take a 10-point lead, the largest for either team. The Lions (3-5), behind outside shooting from junior Christina Haswood, responded, going on a 12-2 run in the final six minutes of the third quarter to take a 2624 lead going into the final quarter.

With 4:56 left in the fourth quarter and the score knotted at 30, Robinson and Garcia started to aggressively take the ball the basket, resulting in easy layups or trips to the free throw line. It was both impressive and risky, especially considering that Robinson started the fourth quarter with four fouls. One charge could have dis-

qualified her from the rest of the game. The Firebirds led, 38-35, with 1:07 to go, and Duncan switched his team’s defense from man-to-man to a 2-3 zone out of a timeout. “We felt like in that situation, it was a good move,” Duncan said. “We wanted to try to slow them down a little bit and make them take some time of the clock. And maybe make them uncomfortable.” The zone accomplished both goals. The Lions turned

it over after being unable to find an open look after more than 25 seconds with the ball. Free State sophomore Kennedy Kirkpatrick hit two free throws to seal the victory. Duncan was impressed with the Lions’ ability to hit tough shots. “That’s a quality win in a very difficult environment,” Duncan said. “That speaks volumes for our players to be able to beat a team that played that well on their home court tonight.” Free State travels to Shawnee Mission Northwest for a game at 7 p.m. on Monday. The Lions play Emporia at 7 p.m. on Friday at LHS.

Girls De Soto 30, Tonganoxie 29 Despite holding the De Soto High girls basketball team to no field goals in the final sixplus minutes, Tonganoxie couldn’t capitalize and fell Tuesday in the first round of its home tournament. The Chieftains had a onepoint lead with just 11 seconds remaining, but Wildcats senior forward Katie Gorman hit two free throws that proved to be the game-winners. THS (2-5) had one last chance at a victory in its Tonganoxie Invitational opener but a contested 15-foot jumper by junior guard Haley Smith rimmed out as time expired. De Soto’s only fourth-quarter field goal came with 6:42 to play, when senior point guard Shelbi Petty scored on a transition layup and the Wildcats (6-4) didn’t score again until Taylor Saucerman hit the front end of a one-andone at the free-throw line with 25 seconds left.

Alabama 68, No. 12 Kentucky 66 T U S C A L O O S A , A L A . — Ben Eblen grabbed a loose ball and made one of two free throws with 2.8 seconds left to help Alabama preserve a victory over Kentucky on Tuesday night. The Wildcats, who had nearly erased a 20-point deficit, rebounded the missed foul shot, but couldn’t get a good shot off at the buzzer. Terrence Jones dribbled across midcourt and heaved a wild three-pointer in traffic that caromed high off the backboard. The Crimson Tide (11-7, 3-1 SEC) had lost the last five meetings with the league powerhouse and had been 2-7 against ranked teams under coach Anthony Grant. This time, Alabama surged to a 52-32 lead with a 15-2 spurt over the first 5 minutes of the second half before the Wildcats (14-4, 2-2) rallied. Then, Brandon Knight and Doron Lamb botched an exchange on the perimeter and Eblen grabbed the ball in the final seconds. The Wildcats shot just 38 percent from the floor and were held to 14 points below their league-leading scoring average, stymied by a Tide defense that gives up the fewest points in the SEC. JaMychal Green had 18 points and 11 rebounds to lead the Tide, which is 10-0 at home. Tony Mitchell scored 15 and helped punctuate the fast start after halftime. Alabama also made half its 14 three-point attempts, including three by Charvez Davis. Jones led Kentucky with 17 points and nine rebounds, but also committed four turnovers. Lamb added 16 points, Knight had 14 and Darius Miller 12.

BIG 12

K-State plunges out of top 25 rankings By Doug Tucker Associated Press Sports Writer

MANHATTAN — As the final seconds ticked away in Colorado’s f irst victory over Kansas State in 10 games, a loud voice in a quiet arena rang out. “This one’s on you, Frank,” someone shouted. It’s anyone guess whether Frank Martin heard the disgusted fan, but the emotional head coach of the Wildcats would not have argued. As a once-promising season threatens to turn into a nightmare for the preseason Big 12 favorites and disappointed fans send out a searching party for scapegoats, Martin is offering up himself for sacrifice. “When the fish stinks, it stinks in the head first,” he said. “If we stunk the way we’ve been playing, it starts with me, not the kids.” After losing, 75-59, to No. 13 Missouri on Monday, the Wildcats are 13-6 overall and 1-3 in the conference. They’ve been in a Top 25 freefall, plunging from No. 3 all the way out of the rankings. In the past month, the program has been rocked with player suspension and player defection. Some promising young players have shown no progress from last year, and even appear to have regressed. Martin’s even found himself trying to explain how a team leader’s embarrassing declaration was misunderstood. All this from the team that won a school-record 29 games last year and advanced to the quarterfinals of the NCAA Tournament. Martin, the first Kansas State coach to win 72 games his first three years, was rewarded with a sevenfigure contract extension, and senior guard Jacob Pullen was picked as the school’s first preseason All-American. For the first time since the Big 12 was formed, the Wildcats were the coach’s preseason pick to win the conference. Pullen was favored to be Big 12 player of the year. Oh, what a lovely season it was supposed to be.

KANSAS STATE COACH FRANK MARTIN YELLS encouragement to his team during the first half against Missouri. The Wildcats fell to the Tigers, 75-59, on Monday in Columbia Mo. K-State, once No. 3 in the country, have dropped out of the top 25 rankings. Since Dec. 21, however, when Pullen was suspended for three games and forward Curtis Kelly for six, the Wildcats have not beaten anybody who was not a heavy underdog. They’ve lost to UNLV, Oklahoma State, Colorado and Missouri. If they don’t pull themselves out of this tailspin and fix whatever’s ailing them, the season could quickly be lost. Their next three games are against No. 11 Texas A&M, No. 2 Kansas and Baylor. “It all ends up on me,” Martin said. “I’ve done a bad job coaching this team. I did a

pretty good job early, and I’ve let this team down, and that’s not going to happen again.” In a victory last week at home over Texas Tech, which remains winless in the Big 12, Martin seemed to tone down his fiery sideline antics. Or did he? “I was my emotional self,” he said. “Just as enthusiastic about my job and as demanding as I’ve ever been. I said after the game I haven’t done a very good job of coaching this team the last five or six weeks. I have to refocus on what I was doing, get us playing the way we’re supposed to

play the game, the way we built our program over the last four years.” Freddy Asprilla, a 6-foot-10 junior college transfer, was expected to add heft and offense inside this year, but the Colombia native abruptly quit the program last week. “Sometimes guys can’t handle Frank, they can’t handle the way he demands,” said senior Curtis Kelly. “He wants the best out of you every time, and even though you may not be able to give it to him every time, he still wants you to try, and I think Freddy failed at that, unfortunately.” Pullen, the top scorer and acknowledged team leader, sat out three games and Kelly missed six after questions were raised over clothing they obtained at a Manhattan Dillard’s store. Almost as soon as he came back, Pullen created another controversy following the loss to Colorado. “This is my last go-around. I’m not going to the NIT,” he told reporters. “I won’t play basketball in the NIT. I’m saying that now, if we lose and we have to go to the NIT, I will not play.” To most people who heard it, Pullen seemed to be saying he was not willing to adjust his goals, that he still planned to qualify for the NCAA Tournament. But around the country, his words were viewed as arrogance. “Anyone who believes that’s what he feels isn’t a very good journalist,” said Martin. “What do you expect from a four-year senior who’s worked his tail off to change the culture in our program and has come off two consecutive conference losses including your home opener and your team didn’t play well? I’ve heard grown men, coaches, make that same statement about their teams. It was an emotional moment. He probably said something he shouldn’t have said.” If Kansas State does get everything straightened out, Pullen’s declaration could be tested when the NCAA selection committee passes the Wildcats by.

BIG 12 MEN

Upstart Nebraska upends Colorado The Associated Press

Nebraska 79, Colorado 67 LINCOLN , N EB . — A smiling Doc Sadler pumped his fist a couple times as he walked off the court at the Devaney Center. Most seasons, a victory over Colorado wouldn’t mean that much. But Tuesday night’s victory against the surprise team of the Big 12 meant a lot, especially after two tough road losses to No. 13 Missouri and No. 2 Kansas. Nebraska (14-4, 2-2 Big 12) matched its 2009-10 conference win total, improved to 13-0 at home and did it by holding the Buffaloes 17 points under their seasonscoring average. “You realize how long it took us to get two wins last year?” said Sadler, Nebraska’s fifth-year coach. “It’s something to be excited about. It’s exciting to be the coach here. I told y’all, this team could be something, and I believe in them. I really do.” The Huskers finished last in the Big 12 last season and didn’t get their second league win until their 14th game, in late February. Picked 10th this season, the Huskers head to Texas Tech on Saturday with a chance to go over .500 in conference play for the f irst time since February 2009. Toney McCray matched his career high with 18 points, Jorge Brian Diaz had 14 points on 7-for-8 shooting and Lance Jeter and Drake Beranek added 10 points apiece. The Huskers shot 57 percent from the field and were even better on the defensive end. They forced 16 turnovers and allowed the Buffaloes, who had been shooting a Big 12-leading 26 free throws a game, only nine shots from the line. “I can’t even imagine it, and they probably shouldn’t have shot nine, because we had a couple bad fouls late,” Sadler said. “That’s the difference.” The Huskers, who had lost two straight to the Buffaloes, bounced back strongly after they blew a 10-point, secondhalf lead against the Jayhawks on Saturday. “We definitely had to get a win,” said Jeter, who also had nine assists and six rebounds. “Protect our home, that’s what we did. The crowd was outstanding and gave us that extra burst that we needed. Our team played good defense, and Coach Doc just wanted to make sure we kept them out of the lane. They’re a driving team and they get a lot of fouls, so we wanted to keep them out of the lane and not foul them that much.” The Buffaloes had started Big 12 play with victories over nationally ranked Missouri and Kansas State, then came from 10 points down to beat Oklahoma State on Saturday for their seventh straight win. But they struggled to defend a Nebraska team that had a marked size advantage. Nebraska led 31-30 at halftime and used a 13-2 run early in the second half to break the game open.

Oklahoma 83, Texas Tech 74 N O R M A N , O K L A . — Cade Davis needed a boost, perhaps more badly than Oklahoma did after equaling its worst start ever to Big 12 play. Davis followed his lowestscoring game of the season by matching his career high with 25 points, and Oklahoma snapped a 12-game losing streak against Big 12 competition Tuesday night by beating Texas Tech. Davis missed Oklahoma’s game at Baylor a week earlier following the death of his grandmother, then scored only three points before fouling out in Oklahoma’s loss at Texas on Saturday. That defeat put the Sooners at 0-3 in Big 12 play for only the second time. “It was so uplifting for me to come out and play the way that I did,” Davis said. “I knew I’d had some emotional baggage carrying with me those last few games, and obviously, it affected the way that I played.” Davis missed his first four three-point attempts but went 4-for-4 when it mattered most as the Sooners (9-9, 1-3) prevailed in a meeting of the last two teams without a conference win. The first two three-pointers came during a 10-2 run after the Red Raiders had pulled within 33-30 early in the second half. Tech (8-11, 0-4) never got closer than six afterward. “It’s good for these guys to have some success and to get in here and to have a win,” coach Jeff Capel said. “Hopefully we feel good about it and hopefully it makes us hungrier to come back and to get back in the gym and to get better.” Oklahoma finished last season with nine straight losses, the last in the Big 12 tournament, then started conference play this season with three losses by a combined 51 points with a completely revamped roster featuring eight new players. “We can’t do anything about the past,” Capel said.

Look for reliable health information on the Internet Q:

With the growing popularity of the Internet, it’s easier and faster than ever to find health information. How can I figure out if it is accurate or misleading?

A:

According to the National Institutes of Health, here are some key points to consider: Any website should make it easy for people to learn who is responsible for the site and its information. If the person or organization in charge of the website did not write the material, the original source should be clearly identified. In addition to identifying the original source of the material, the site should identify the evidence on which the material is based. Medical facts and figures should have references (such as citations of articles in medical journals). Also, opinions or advice should be clearly set apart from information that is “evidence-based” (that is, based on research results). Health-related websites

Cooking Q&A

should give information about the medical credentials of the people who prepare or review the material on the website. Any website asking users for personal information should explain exactly what the site will and will not do with the information. Many commercial sites sell “aggregate” data about their users to other companies — information such as what percent of their users take dietary supplements. In some cases, they may collect and reuse information that is “personally identifiable,” such as the user’s ZIP code, gender and birth date. Users should be certain they read and under-

stand any privacy policy or similar language on the site, and not sign up for anything they do not fully understand. The source of a site’s funding should be clearly stated or readily apparent. For example, Web addresses ending in “.gov” are federal government-sponsored sites, “.edu” indicates educational institutions, “.org” is often used by noncommercial organizations and “.com” denotes commercial organizations. The source of funding can affect what content is presented, how the content is presented and what the owners want to accomplish on the site. Websites should be reviewed and updated on a regular basis. It is particularly important that medical information be current, and that the most recent update or review date be clearly posted. Even if the information has not changed, it is helpful to know that the site owners have reviewed it recently to ensure that the information is still valid.

Boeuf Bourguignon a time-consuming but tasty culinary adventure Bleu, to the status of fancy cuisine. Mr. Meat and Potatoes, upon learning this fact as he ate, said, “Well French peasants have it pretty good, then.” Touche, they do. Ah, to be a peasant in France. Be sure that you start this dish sufficiently early. I didn’t start anything until after 5 p.m. on Saturday, and we didn’t sit down to eat until after 9 p.m., which is about four hours later than our usual dining hour. I felt that the late dinnertime added to our “fancy cooking night” and we did feel a little more cosmopolitan than usual, sitting in front of our television and consuming our stew.

BEEF BOURGUIGNON 1 3-pound roast (chuck is best) 2 cups red wine (preferably chianti or some other full-bodied red — but all I had was the remains of a Bota Box) 2 cup beef broth or stock (I used the stuff I pour off of crockpot roasts and freeze) 5 strips of bacon, cut into 1-inch pieces 2 tablespoon tomato paste Splash of balsamic vinegar 2 cup carrot pieces 1 red onion 1 cup mushrooms 2 bay leaves 2 teaspoon marjoram 2 teaspoon basil Salt Pepper Olive oil

Begin by heating your oven to 450 degrees and cutting your roast into hunks about 3 inches by 3 inches. Make sure your meat is at room temperature before you start cooking. Once your meat is cut up, set it aside, uncovered, to dry. Then, cook the bacon pieces. When the fat is rendered and the pieces are almost crispy, remove them to a bowl and leave the fat in the skillet. You’ll use this fat to brown the meat.

Sprinkle the meat liberally with kosher salt and cracked pepper, and then give it a good sear on each side. It is important here that you let the meat get really brown, not gray. This means that not only should your grease be quite hot, but you should not crowd the meat (I did mine in three shifts) and you should be patient during this process. It takes longer than you’ll want it to. Add more bacon grease or supplement with olive oil as you go if your pan gets dry. Remove the beef and set it aside. Chop half a red onion into large hunks and add it to the fat in the pan, along with carrots in 2-inch pieces (I cut baby carrots in half on the bias). Sprinkle with salt and pepper, and saute until both are beginning to be soft. Then transfer the meat and the vegetables to a deep-dish casserole with a lid, or an ovenready stock pot. This is where the Le Creuset satin blue casserole of my dreams would have come in handy. Hint. Add the herbs and the wine and the beef stock until the meat is just covered, stir everything together, sprinkle the whole thing with flour and pop it in the oven for five or six minutes. Then remove the casserole, reduce the heat to 325 degrees, and while you wait for the heat to reduce, saute your mushrooms. I quartered mine, tossed them in a couple tablespoons of olive oil and a splash of balsamic vinegar, and pushed them around a skillet until they had very dark edges, almost crispy. Then set them aside for later use. When your oven temp is at 325, put the lid on the casserole and put it in the oven for 2 1/2 hours — longer if you have the time. When the meat is sufficiently tender, remove the casserole from the oven and (using a pot holder) remove the lid. In a large skillet, place a collander and dump the contents into

also 25-30 percent cheaper. ● Buy in bulk when it makes sense. Look for sales on bulk items to save money. ● Contact the company and tell them your concerns.

A: Manufacturers say rising transportation costs and increasing ingredient and manufacturing costs have caused the change. While the smaller size is obvious in some products, in others it is not. An example is adding an indentation to the bottom of plastic bottles. Another example is using thinner plastic wraps to hold multiple items together. Here are some shopping tips: ● Compare brands. Some manufacturers are not changing package sizes. ● Compare unit prices posted on store shelves. ● Switch to store brands. Many are comparable or even better in quality than national brands. They are

Q: Do you have a recipe for 100 percent wholewheat pancakes? A: Here’s one shared by the Wheat Foods Council:

LIGHT-AS-A-FEATHER WHOLE-WHEAT PANCAKES 1 1/3 cups whole wheat flour 1 large egg 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder 1 1/3 cups buttermilk 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 tablespoon brown sugar 1/4 teaspoon baking soda 1 tablespoon oil

ter should be slightly lumpy. Pour 1/4 cup batter for each cake onto a well-seasoned hot griddle. Flip the pancake when bubbles appear on surface; turn only once. Alternatives: ● Omit soda, use 2 teaspoons baking powder and 1 1/3 cups 2 percent milk. ● Add 1⁄2 cup fresh or frozen blueberries. ● Serve hot, chunky, spiced applesauce or thick fruit sauce over cakes instead of syrup for extra nutrition and fiber. Makes 12 (4-inch) pancakes. Each pancake provides approximately 78 calories, 3 grams protein, 12 grams carbohydrate, 2 grams fiber, 2 grams fat, 19 milligrams cholesterol, 178 milligrams sodium.

Preheat griddle. In medium bowl, stir or sift dry ingredients together; beat egg, buttermilk, brown sugar and oil together. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened; bat-

Q: I’ve started noticing that many grocery items have become smaller recently, but the cost is either the same or higher. Why?

the collander, thus draining the liquid off into the skillet and leaving the vegetables and beef in the collander. Remove the collander and set it aside for later — and go ahead and throw your mushrooms in the pot at this point. Now you’re ready to reduce the sauce. Turn the heat up under the skillet to medium, or higher if necessary. You want to bring the sauce to a very bubbly boil, and just let it sit there and cook. Stir it with a whisk now and then and watch as it miraculously turns into a thick, rich gravy that will coat the back of a spoon. While your sauce thickens, bring a pot of water to a boil and cook a bag of wide egg noodles. Egg noodles cook quickly, so you should be able to do this in about the same amount of time. Serve the beef and vegetables atop the hot noodles and ladle the gravy over the top. It’s important that you have a couple of pieces of crusty baguette to go alongside this, as the best part of the meal, if you ask me, is the gravy sopped up into a sturdy piece of bread. ●

Because there were only two of us, we have some leftovers, which tonight I am going to turn into a more traditional vegetable-beef soup. Just chop the beef cubes up a little smaller and throw the vegetables, beef and noodles into a stock pot. Cover everything with beef stock and a cup or two of water, and add in some peas, corn, beans, whatever else suits you, and a can of diced tomatoes. The gravy from the original dish will add a lot of flavor to your broth. Voila! Meal No. 1, fit for a French chef. Which, of course, I’ll serve up with a grilled cheese sandwich made with that finest of cheese, the American slice sitting next to it. We’re so refined.

Chili turns up heat in Lawrence restaurants CONTINUED FROM PAGE 10B

extreme heat. When it became known just how hot it was, chili-heads worldwide took notice. The pepper has made its way into myriad sauces with skulls and “death” slapped on their labels. It’s also been deemed “fit for use” by the Indian military for pepper grenades designed to smoke out terrorists. In Lawrence, Vermont Street BBQ owner Chris Brann, who plans to reopen the restaurant, has been soaking the chilies in vodka to add heat to his smoked Bloody Marys and crank the volume on his homemade pickles up to 11. “It’s haat,” Brann says of the chili, eschewing the generic “hot” long reserved for Tabasco sauce. The spiciness of peppers is measured in Scoville units, which indicate how much capiscum, the chemical compound responsible for the heat, is present in a

pepper. Pure capsicum is 16 million units. A jalapeno is between 2,500 and 5,000 units. Original Tabasco is between 7,000 to 8,000, and the habanero (once the hottest known chili) notches between 350,000 to 577,000 units. The bhut jolokia? It’s been recorded as high as 1,041,427 Scoville units, or about a fifth the potency of police-grade pepper spray. Brann harvested seven chilies from a plant given to him from a friend. He says since the cold weather arrived and he moved the plant indoors, it’s been the hardest of his numerous plants to keep alive. But, still, it kicks. “It’s a pretty hearty little plant, I figured that much out,” he says. Brann uses one-fourthpart cactus soil and threefourths standard potting soil. He added a few stones for moisture control and has been resting the pot on a radiator near large windows

producing ample sunlight. He’s quick to add that his technique is more theory than science. Brann says his bhut jolokia-infused vodka has few frills. Any plain vodka will do. He then crushes the peppers and lets them soak for a minimum of one month and no longer than three months. “Any longer than that it becomes special reserve stuff,” he says with a laugh. Diners at Esquina, 801 Mass, may have had a ghost chili encounter when visiting in the summer and fall months. Co-owner Simon Bates introduced the pepper, supplied from a Eudora farm, into one of the restaurant’s salsas. Up until last month when supply ceased for the season, Bates says Lawrence’s most powerful salsa met an equally strong reception. “It was a big hit, and it’s just delicious,” Bates says. One of Brann’s concerns when considering whether

Bates says he found a way to preserve the flavor of the pepper while satisfying resident chiliheads. “I mean, we could’ve made so that it was so

intensely spicy that no one would’ve been able to try them,” Bates says. “But being in Kansas and all, we just tried to make it a little more accessible.” Bates put about 25 small, fresh chilies into each onequart batch. He roasted onions, tomatillos and garlic

with the peppers and blended the ingredients with tequila, lime vinegar and oil. Each batch would last about two days. The chilies can be found in packaged and dried at Checkers for usually a little more than $3. Mrs. Renfro’s Ghost Pepper Salsa has also started appearing on shelves since the fall. Bates says the sauce won’t return to Esquina until summer unless he can find the fresh chilies for a reasonable price between now and then. Either way it’s “for sure” coming back, he says. Until then, those cooking at home would be welladvised to wear rubber gloves when preparing the chili. Brann says bhut jolokias go best with traditional Middle Eastern curry dishes. He recommends reducing the peppers in oil at first to cook a little of the heat out. And, above all, he says, make sure you like haat stuff.

Ring in the Year of the Rabbit with Chinese-American cuisine And making a dish in memory of her mother fits Jung’s grown-up perspective on the holiday. “As I get older and the family gets larger with significant others and kids and people moving away, it’s one of the holidays where we really make an effort to gather and to see each other and catch up.” And those red envelopes come in handy, too. These days she fills them with crisp bills of her own and gives them away to her nieces.

By Michelle Locke For the Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO — Have your luck and eat it, too. That’s the philosophy behind traditional Chinese New Year’s dishes, which are loaded with symbolic meaning auguring prosperity for the coming year. Want to live long? Eat long noodles — just be sure not to cut them. Need a bit more in the bank? Serve fish, the Chinese name for which sounds like the word for surplus. And don’t forget dumplings, which also symbolize prosperity and are traditionally eaten late on the eve of the New Year. The Year of the Rabbit starts with the big “reunion dinner” on New Year’s Eve — Feb. 2 this year — a meal reserved for family and resonant with culinary customs. Carolyn Jung, a San Francisco Bay food writer who blogs at www.foodgal.com, remembers sitting at the table as the youngest of her family, and only girl, helping her mom fold dumplings by hand and “waiting eagerly for her to pan fry them or boil them so that we could dig in.” Chinese New Year is celebrated in many parts of the world that have sizable populations of Chinese immigrants, and other Asian cultures have similar celebrations. With so many people involved, the customs aren’t uniform, though the hope for a prosperous new year is a constant. The festival lasts 15 days, with some days set aside for visiting and other rituals. It wraps up with a Lantern Festival on the final night. For Patricia Tanumihardja, who grew up in Singapore and is of Chinese and Indonesian descent, the holiday means eating pineapple tarts, which can take different forms but generally call for a luscious pineapple jam stuffed into flaky pastry. “Every year that was the one thing I wanted to eat,” says Tanumihardja, author of “The Asian Grandmothers Cookbook.”

TOMATO BEEF CHOW MEIN This is the time when luxury ingredients such as shrimp or abalone shine and fish is served whole to symbolize plenty. Serving whole poultry also is a sign of family unity and Tanumihardja sometimes makes a whole braised duck for a holiday meal. In Singapore, a raw fish salad is served in restaurants with the ingredients kept separate on a large plate or tray. Before they eat, diners stand and toss the salad as high as they can saying auspicious words like “Every year we’ll have prosperity.” As a kid, Jung saw Chinese New Year as mostly about the food — and the red envelopes filled with crisp dollar bills that are handed out to children. She spent the money and kept the brightly decorated envelopes, keeping them neatly stowed away in a drawer. As she grew up, the holiday

became more about family. These days she often makes her mom’s tomato beef chow mein, a blend of east and west cooking styles typical in Chinese-American kitchens. “I remember so many times peeking over her shoulder as she crisped up the noodles in the pan,” says Jung, who would sneak noodles right out of the pan until she was shooed away. Jung’s mother passed away some years ago, and a lot of her recipes are gone, “but this was one that I did get her to write down.” The recipe isn’t strictly orthodox New Year’s fare, but the noodles symbolize the traditional wish for long life.

This recipe was handed down to Carolyn Jung by her late mother, May Jung. With its beef and tomato combination married to crispy Chinese noodles, it’s a blend of cuisines. Jung has on occasion used heirloom tomatoes, something her mother would never have done. But the dish remains true to the traditions of the Chinese-American kitchen — strong on flavor, but simple to prepare. The noodles make this a good choice for Chinese New Year, when eating long noodles is said to promote long life.

To marinate the meat, in a medium bowl mix together the sesame oil, soy sauce, baking soda and cornstarch. Add the steak and turn the pieces to coat evenly. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Once the steak has marinated, prepare the noodles. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the noodles and cook for 1 minute. Drain the noodles, then rinse them under cold water, then drain again. Transfer the noodles to a large bowl. Add the sesame oil and soy sauce, then toss well. Heat two 12-inch nonstick skillets briefly over medium. Add 1 tablespoon of the vegetable or canola oil to each.

When the oil is hot, add half of the noodles to each skillet. Cook, stirring often, until the noodles are crispy and lightly browned. Cover the pans and set aside. Heat a large wok or nonstick skillet over high. Add 1 tablespoon of the oil. When the oil is hot, add the beef and stir-fry until browned, about 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer the steak to a bowl, cover and set aside. Add the remaining tablespoon of oil to the wok. Reduce heat to medium-high, then add the onion, celery and bell pepper. Saute for several minutes, then add the fresh tomatoes, stewed tomatoes, soy sauce, vinegar, sugar and ginger. Bring to a boil. Slowly stir in the cornstarch mixture, then continue cooking until the sauce thickens. Add the beef, then stir in the noodles. Serves 4.

TOMATO BEEF CHOW MEIN For the meat: 1 teaspoon sesame oil 1 teaspoon dark soy sauce 1/4 teaspoon baking soda 1 teaspoon cornstarch 1/2 pound flank steak, thinly sliced against the grain For the noodles: 1 pound fresh Chinese egg noodles 2 tablespoons sesame oil 2 tablespoons dark soy sauce For the sauce: 4 tablespoons vegetable or canola oil, divided 1 yellow onion, thinly sliced 2 ribs celery, diagonally sliced 1/2 green bell pepper, sliced 4 large tomatoes, cored and cut into large chunks 14 1/2-ounce can stewed tomatoes

“THE FLYING FORK”

a blog by Megan Stuke

Channeling my inner Julia I can’t stop saying “Boeuf Bourguignon” as if I were Julia Child. Over and over again on Saturday, I announced to Mr. Meat and Potatoes, and anyone else who would listen, what we were having for dinner. I wished I were wearing pearls and sensible heels and a L’école Des Trois Gourmandes badge on my blouse. Boeuf Bourguignon is not a difficult dish to make, despite Julia Child’s reputation, and the reputation of French cooking altogether. Actually, it’s quite pedestrian, and it requires basic ingredients that we all can easily get our hands on. And, there’s red wine involved. And the beauty of that is, it only takes 2 cups, so the rest of the wine is for the cook to enjoy during the long period the dish spends in the oven. Of course, I cannot do anything according to the letter, and of course, I failed to plan well and didn’t have all of Julia’s ingredients on-hand, and sometimes I just know what we’ll like better, so I had to do it “my way.” This is, then, in no way, shape, or form, to be considered Julia’s Boeuf Bourguignon. Only I can take credit for this one. Boeuf Bourguignon (otherwise known as burgundy beef), like coq au vin, is actually French peasant food that has somehow risen in our imaginations, probably thanks a lot to Julia Child and The Cordon

GHOST CHILIES, a product from India, are known as one of the hottest peppers on the planet. They’ve been featured recently in Lawrence dishes and are sold in area stores.

CHILI CON CARNAGE Painfully hot ghost chili popping up on Lawrence store shelves By Stephen Montemayor smontemayor@ljworld.com

LAWRENCE.COM editorTrevan McGee (middle images) and intern Stephen Montemayor sample ghost chilies. See the video at Lawrence.com.

Even before dehydration, the bhut jolokia — or ghost chili — is savagely red when mature and contorts itself as if to show would-be diners its plans for their tongues. If jalapenos pop, the bhut jolokia explodes. Erik Cofer, assistant produce manager at Checkers Foods, 2300 La., says when tasted, the pepper first hits the back of the throat before running its numbing heat down the tongue. And he should know. Last summer Cofer grew 40 pounds of the peppers, which in the last year have popped up on grocery store

shelves, in wicked salsas and, soon, in what promises to be the city’s Bloodiest Mary. “Habaneros are ‘meh’ to me now,” Cofer says. The Guinness Book of World Records agreed when it crowned the bhut jolokia the world’s hottest pepper in 2007. And though a chili in England was recorded as spicier last month, the bhut jolokia has been enjoying a storied rise. Originating in northeast India, the pepper was an apparition before 2000 to all but those who grew it and dined on it to ease, of all things, stomach ills and Please see CHILI, page 9B

We are expecting our first child soon, and Buddy is clearly a risk. How do I convince my husband of this without getting divorced? — Illinois

Critics and pundits have been predicting the demise of “American Idol” (7 p.m., Fox) for the better part of a decade. And sooner or later, one of them is going to be right. Of the original “Idol” judges, only Randy Jackson remains. He’s joined by actress and pop star Jennifer Lopez and Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler. And as far as I can see, they are all perfectly nice. And that’s the problem. From the limited number of auditions made available for review, I can safely declare that some folks will be tuning in just to see how Lopez changes her hairdo from show to show. Lopez is attractive, generally sweet and frequently misty-eyed when confronted with young talent. Tyler seems overcaffeinated and can’t help singing harmony, clapping or rapping out a beat during auditions. Jackson has assumed the elder statesman role by dispensing with many of his familiar ticks and sound bites. I can’t recall a single “dawg,” or even a “yo-yoyo.” The departure of Simon Cowell may not prove fatal, but the absence of anyone willing to play the critic, the crab or the leavening tablespoon of vinegar may spell doom. Had Dorothy merely clicked her heels at the start of the movie, there wouldn’t be very much to remember about “The Wizard of Oz.” Sadly, that’s how “American Idol” is starting to shape up: three Glindas and not one Wicked Witch. There isn’t even a flying monkey in sight. Unless you count Ryan Seacrest. ● “Hot in Cleveland” (9 p.m., TV Land) returns for a second season, complete with a cameo appearance by Mary Tyler Moore. Sadly, the reunion of Moore with her “Mary Tyler Moore Show” co-star Betty White is shot through with obvious references to the past and several forced non-witticisms. And sadder still, the writing goes downhill from there. It’s simply pathetic that a series with so many wellloved actresses should so quickly descend to the sexual smarminess of the “Two and a Half Men” variety. ● Just as L.A. women of a certain age can find they’re “Hot in Cleveland,” an overworked New York nerd can find himself considered quite a stud in a Florida retirement community. That, in short, is the slightly creepy premise of “Retired at 35” (9:30 p.m., TV Land).

Tonight’s other highlights ● Neil deGrasse Tyson hosts “Nova ScienceNow” (7 p.m., PBS, check local listings). Tonight: the prospect for travel to Mars. ● A drug dealer’s wife takes a deadly stand on “Chase” (8 p.m., NBC). ● An anniversary surprise turns awkward on “Modern Family” (8 p.m., ABC). ● A Wall Street operator turns to oldfashioned bank robbery on the fifth-season opener of “American Greed” (8 p.m., and 11 p.m., CNBC). ● A cold case thaws on “Blue Bloods” (9 p.m., CBS). ● Shohreh Aghdashloo guest stars on “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” (9 p.m., NBC). ● An anaconda strikes on “Off the Map” (9 p.m., ABC). ● Henry plots war with France on “The Tudors” (9 p.m., BBC America).

Dear Annie: I am a 36-yearold husband and father, married for four years. Two years ago, I caught my wife cheating on me. I was willing to forgive her for the sake of our children. But lately, our marriage seems to have fallen into that dark alley again. My wife is always on Facebook or buried in her cell phone, texting. She won’t tell me with whom. Every time I dare peek at what she is doing, she goes immediately on the defensive. I confronted her about how shady she has been, and she assures me it’s nothing to be concerned about. Well, time, aggravation and arguments have turned me into someone I don’t like. I logged into her Facebook account and checked out her private messages. I discovered she’s been talking to some guy behind my back. It’s not an affair, but there is definite flirting. I haven’t told her what I know. Should I? Was I wrong to snoop? Help. — Distrustful

Affordable Care Act repeal discouraged Schools have plans By Karrey Britt kbritt@ljworld.com

Last spring, a selfemployed Florida couple were struggling financially and emotionally. Dawn Josephson, 38, said they not only were paying for costly health insurance premiums, but they also were paying for all of their son’s medical costs. Wesley, 5, was diagnosed in 2008 with strabismus, a condition in which the eyes don’t properly align. In July 2009, he had surgery, and then in November the family’s health insurance company said it would no longer be able to offer coverage. “So, we had essentially lost our insurance coverage plan with no specif ic reason cited,” she said. The couple found another plan, but any costs related to Wesley’s condition were excluded. Their situation changed with passage of the Affordable Care Act. Under the bill, insurers cannot deny coverage to children because of a pre-existing condition. The couple now have an

HIGH-RISK PLANS Kansas offers two insurance plans for people whose medical conditions have made them uninsurable. They are the Pre-existing Condition Insurance Plan-Kansas, and the State High Risk Pool. For more information on either plan, visit Kansas Health Insurance Association’s website at khiastatepool.com. The association administers both plans. For PCIP-KS call 877-505-0511, and for the State High Risk Pool call 800-362-9290.

insurance plan that covers their son, although they still pay a hefty premium. “It’s not a free handout by any means,” she said. “But just knowing that we don’t have to pay for all of the medical treatments related to his eye condition, it’s an emotional and financial relief.” Josephson participated in a telephone conference call Tuesday with U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and two

other Americans who have benefited from the Affordable Care Act. Once again, Sebelius, former Kansas govSebelius ernor, strongly discouraged repeal of the law. Here’s why: ● 129 million people under age 65 have a pre-existing condition, such as heart disease, cancer, arthritis or high blood pressure, that could provide a barrier to health insurance coverage. That includes 1.2 million Kansans. ● One out of seven applicants were denied coverage between 2007 and 2008 by the nation’s four largest forprofit insurers because of their health status. ● Between 48 and 86 percent of Americans ages 55 to 64 have a pre-existing condition. ● About 30 percent of people under age 65 in good health are likely to develop a pre-existing condition in the next eight years. ● One in five Americans

under age 65 with a pre-existing condition are uninsured. “No one has been treated worse in this marketplace than Americans with preexisting health conditions. Under the old rules, if you had any kind of medical condition — whether you were a child born with a disability, a cancer survivor, a pregnant woman, or in some cases a victim of domestic violence — insurers could freely deny your application, and they took full advantage of that opportunity,” Sebelius said. So far, 149,000 uninsured Americans with pre-existing conditions, including 122 Kansans, have enrolled in the temporary federal high-risk pool program called the Preexisting Condition Insurance Plan. The program serves as a bridge until 2014 when insurance companies can no longer deny or limit coverage or charge higher premiums because of a pre-existing condition. — Health reporter Karrey Britt can be reached at 832-7190.

Governor shows easy fixes for saving energy By Christine Metz cmetz@ljworld.com

T O P E K A — Launching a state-wide energy challenge that pits Lawrence against Manhattan, Gov. Sam Brownback spoke in terms the cities’ residents were likely to understand: basketball. “Most homes have enough cracks in them and areas of opening that are about the size of a basketball,” Brownback said holding a basketball to demonstrate his point. “If you saw a hole in your house this big, you would definitely patch it.” Brownback’s own home, the Governor’s mansion at Cedar Crest, was the site of the kickoff for Take Charge! Challenge, a $1 million program that has 16 cities across the state competing among each other to see whose residents can save the most energy. Starting on Jan. 29, Lawrence will square off against Manhattan for a $100,000 prize and a basketball signed by the governor. Brownback referenced the state’s wind turbines, methane gas plants and even Lawrence’s Bowersock Mills and Power Company as ways to meet the state’s energy challenges. “It’s one of those times where you can try different things and people want to embrace it,” Brownback said. “A lot of it is that you got to show that you can do it and you can do it economically. Part of sustainability is eco-

Lawrence residents should take notes. As part of the Take Charge! Challenge, residents will be asked to keep track of how many light bulbs they switch to compact fluorescent lights. And draft stoppers — pieces of Styrofoam put behind electric outlets and light switches — will be handed out at community events. “It’s a great way to mitigate the big basketball-size hole that is in everyone’s house,” John Milburn/AP Photo said Margaret Tran, the local community coordinator for KANSAS GOV.

Not everyone in Treece sold on buyouts ————

‘We ain’t selling’ because offer was too low to purchase new house, resident says ONLINE: Read more about Treece’s mining history and the process of getting federal buyouts in “Mining’s Legacy: A Scar on Kansas” at LJWorld.com

T R E E C E ( AP ) — Potential contamination from heavy minerals and the ever-present danger that homes could be swallowed in a sinkhole aren’t enough to make some residents leave the southern Kansas mining community of Treece. Neither are the proposed federal buyouts, which are sharply lower than what’s being offered to relocate from neighboring Picher, Okla., because of the waste left after a century of lead and zinc mining in the area. The Environmental Protection Agency has allocated $3.5 million for the buyout. Some of the 100 remaining Treece residents told The Joplin Globe that they like living in the community and don’t plan to leave. Others said the compensation they have been offered

through the Treece Relocation Assistance Trust isn’t enough. “We know that people have preconceived notions about Treece,” said Pam Pruitt, who has served as the town’s clerk. “What they don’t understand is that the people who live here choose to be here.” Mayor Bill Blunk said Treece residents are being offered $27 to $29 per square foot for their properties, while those in Picher are getting $35 to $52 per square foot. He attributed the difference to the number of mobile homes in Treece. About 20 property owners and renters have accepted offers, while about a halfdozen have informed the trust they’re staying put. The trust still has 50 to 60 cases to deal with, including renters. “Many of the people who have accepted their offers are not happy with them, but they can live with it,” Blunk said. “A lot of people are pointing fingers at the trust, but it’s not really the trust

that’s to blame. It falls back onto the appraisals, and there is nothing the trust can do about those.” Even town council members are torn by the thought of leaving. “It got to me really bad,” said Jan Leatherman, a council member. “I’ve cried about leaving. It’s a different culture here, but they are good people. They work hard.” Clifford Carter said he won’t be moving from his conventional home because the buyout offered to him wasn’t enough. “We ain’t selling,” he said. “The cheapest place we found was $40,000 in Baxter Springs. They came nowhere near that with their offer. We are not accepting.” Teresa Palmer, another Treece resident, said she would have to go deeper into debt to move, but she doesn’t have any choice. “They gave us enough to pay off our trailer, but not enough to make a down payment on a house,” she said. “We have looked for houses elsewhere in Columbus, Weir

and Chetopa. The cheapest one I found was $49,900.” Blunk and his wife, Judy, haven’t decided whether they will leave the community where they live in a doublewide mobile home on a large lot. “We are torn up about it,” Judy Blunk said. “We can’t decide whether we want to leave our home or move it to a new piece of land. A lot of people here are facing the same thing. We don’t want to go further into debt to be able to move.”

to deal with possibly disturbed students

By Mark Fagan mfagan@ljworld.com

Kansas University and the Lawrence school district have policies and procedures in place to help educators, staffers and others identify disturbed students and get them the help they may need. The goal: Help the students get better. The effect: Keep classrooms and campuses safe. “Our schools deal with students all the time that have emotional and psychological issues,” said Rick Doll, superintendent of the Lawrence school district, which has 11,000 students. “Our first line of support is our counselors, the first line to try to provide assistance. Then we’d be in touch with local mental health services. We have a very close relationship with Bert Nash (Community Mental Health Center). We can’t force people to get treatment, but we can certainly make that treatment available to them. “Ultimately, if the student was so disruptive, it would be handled at the administration level — and that could be the whole gamut of administrative consequences, culminating with, if they’re totally disruptive, up to and including suspension and expulsion.” Such procedures and policies are of heightened interest these days, after an man who attended a community college in Arizona — a man widely regarded by students and staffers alike as disturbed — is suspected of killing six and injuring 14, including U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, during a shooting Jan. 8 outside a supermarket in Tucson, Ariz. At KU, students, faculty and staffers with concerns about a student’s behavior can turn to the university’s Student Conduct Review Team, whose members investigate and determine the need for further assessment or whether the student is a danger to himself, herself or others. The team, which is made of up staffers from the Office of Student Success, then recommends a response by university officials.

“It can range from trying to facilitate some assistance or lead to expulsion, depending on the circumstances,” said Todd Cohen, a university spokesman. At KU, people may contact the team when a student: ● Exhibits an outburst or disturbing behavior in a classroom or other campus location. ● Submits a “dark” or otherwise disturbing passage in a written work. ● Makes threats involving guns, other weapons or explosive devices either verbally or in writing (including electronically through social networks). ● Reports being troubled by what appears to be “stalking” behavior. ● Acts in a manner or makes statements that are interpreted as posing a threat of violence. ● Exhibits gestures that appear bizarre, threatening, or dangerous — either in person or on videotape. ● Becomes extremely angry and unleashes a loud and abusive verbal attack, such as one regarding a poor or failing grade. ● Habitually demands services beyond the scope and mission of the office or department, or after regular hours of service. In cases involving the high likelihood of imminent danger, people should call 911 immediately, Cohen said. Otherwise, people may call 864-4060 during business hours and ask for the SCRT. Even though many students in college are adults — once they’re 18, they legally make their own decisions about medications and treatment — the university community shouldn’t feel helpless, Cohen said. “We want our faculty, students and staff to be aware, if they have an inkling or have a concern, don’t ignore it,” Cohen said. “Get the team in and get some help to determine if someone is just having a bad day or there’s something bigger at work.” — Schools reporter Mark Fagan can be reached at 832-7188.

Mental health advocates say funding cuts won’t save state much money By Scott Rothschild srothschild@ljworld.com

TOPEKA — Bert Nash Community Mental Health Center is looking at a cut of approximately $372,000 under Gov. Sam Brownback’s proposed budget. Brownback seeks a statewide cut of $10 million from grants to community mental health centers and $5 million in a program designed to help families where children are experiencing mental health problems. “The idea that you can cut $15 million out of mental health funding and expect to save $15 million is incorrect,” David Johnson, chief executive officer of Bert Nash, said Tuesday. “People don’t get well and problems don’t get fixed just because you are not paying for them.” Johnson said cutting the programs will simply mean more people with mental illness will wind up in jail or hospital emergency rooms. “I don’t think you can say anymore that people are just falling through the cracks.

The idea that you can cut $15 million out of mental health funding and expect to save $15 million is incorrect. People don’t get well and problems don’t get fixed just because you are not paying for them.” — David Johnson, chief executive officer of Bert Nash Community Mental Health Center There are just going to be canyons out there,” he said. Brownback has said his proposed budget cuts are necessary to close a revenue shortfall and avoid a tax increase. If the Legislature approves Brownback’s recommendation, then Bert Nash will have experienced an estimated $1 million drop in state funding over the past several years. — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.
