The snow started falling in Lawrence early Wednesday afternoon and refused to stop. Area residents reported snowfall in

excess of five inches throughout the evening hours as a fast-moving winter storm swept across northeast Kansas. The National Weather Service issued a winter storm warning for Douglas County and its surrounding counties that was to expire this morning, but not until it had dumped an additional one to three inches of

snow, for a total of up to eight inches in less than 24 hours. Lawrence street crews began working 24-hour shifts Wednesday morning in preparation for the storm and had all roads in the city treated with sand and salt before 4 p.m.

Dozens have already been fined for failing to clear sidewalks By Chad Lawhorn clawhorn@ljworld.com

A total of 71 Lawrence property owners thus far have learned the hard way that the city is serious about having public sidewalks cleared of snow. Brian Jimenez, the city’s code enforcement manager, confirmed Wednesday that his office had issued 71 tickets to property owners who had failed to have their sidewalk cleared within 48 hours following last week’s snowstorm. The city has received 163 complaints, and staff members are continuing to

inspect properties. “The warmup on Monday took care of a lot of the complaints, but we’re still obligated to take a look,” Jimenez said of his staff of three inspectors. “You never know if a property will thaw and then refreeze. Unfortunately, that is what has been happening quite a bit. That is why it is so important to get the snow off early.” Jimenez said he thinks Lawrence residents are starting to understand the importance of complying with the code. Last year the city issued more than 200 tickets and had more than 700 com-

HOW TO REPORT IT To report an unshoveled sidewalk, call 832-7700 or report it online at http://www.lawrenceks.org/pds/ code_violation. plaints throughout the winter. “When we got this snowstorm, I was saying anything under 200 complaints would be surprising,” Jimenez said. Jimenez said he believes he’s seen more shoveled sidewalks this year than he has in the past. But he said it would be unrealistic for complaint numbers to ever dwindle to just a few.

“I don’t know that anything is ever going to translate into a lot fewer complaints because there are just miles and miles of sidewalks in town,” Jimenez said. Jimenez is guessing that many people who received tickets last year complied with the ordinance this year. But he said there are a lot of out-of-town property owners who may not be fully aware of the ordinance. It is likely that several of them soon will get a lesson on the ordinance in their mailboxes. The $20 ticket — plus court costs — go to the property owner, not the tenant.

TOPEKA — With a sense of urgency, Gov. Sam Brownback on Wednesday renewed his call for reforming school finance, the public pension system and taxpayer-funded health care. Brownback, a Republican who took office last week, assigned top Republicans in the Legislature to produce reforms and have them on his desk to sign into law this session. “We are staring at a structural budget problem that doesn’t go away,” Brownback said at a news conference. Standing beside Brownback were Lt. Gov. Jeff Colyer, Senate President Steve Morris, R-Hugoton, and House Speaker Mike Colyer O’Neal, R-Hutchinson. The funding problems have plagued state government for more than two years as revenues decreased during the recession. In the face of a current estimated budget deficit of $550 million, Brownback has proposed cutting base aid to schools, eliminating or merging eight agencies, and wiping 2,000 unfilled positions off Morris the books. But even if those proposals are implemented, Brownback said, the state still faces a “continued huge structural deficit.” The Kansas Public Employees Retirement System has a $7.7 billion long-term gap between projected revenues and promised benefits, and Medicaid costs are O’Neal skyrocketing as more Kansans fall into poverty and need to access services. Brownback said if he and legislators fail to get control of the three core areas of government there will be additional layoffs, furloughs and cuts to Medicaid providers. Brownback put O’Neal in charge of developing legislation that will define what the state is required to fund for schools to comply with the Kansas Constitution. O’Neal said the state’s responsibility probably falls somewhere between all that is offered now in schools and the basic reading, writing and math. Colyer, a physician and former legislator, will tackle Medicaid funding with a number of Cabinet secretaries and budget director Steve Anderson. Medicaid provides health care to the poor and those with disabilities. Colyer said Medicaid funding is “now on a path Please see BROWNBACK, page 2A

University leaders blame budget cuts for departure of star professors By Scott Rothschild srothschild@ljworld.com

TOPEKA — Leaders of several of Kansas’ public universities said Wednesday that they have lost some star professors because of recent state budget cuts. In Kansas University’s case, budget cuts likely figured into the 2009 departure of associate professor Yang Zhang, one of the most prominent researchers in bioinformatics, according to a “case study” memo by KU. His computational laboratory at KU, started with an initial invest-

ment of $335,000, generated $2.5 million in research funds. But the University of Michigan made a $2 million start-up offer for Zhang to conduct his research Gray-Little there. KU couldn’t counter, the memo said. “In this case, the offer (from Michigan) came when no merit salary increases were available, when cuts were making it impossible to maintain faculty numbers in bioinformatics,

State and Wichita State, but the universities would have to match the state funding through their own existing resources to access those funds. Kansas State, Pittsburg State and Wichita State provided similar examples of top professors leaving for more lucrative deals at other schools. KU Chancellor Bernadette GrayLittle said KU has strong faculty who are sought by programs across the nation. “Their departure causes loss of other staff and research programs,” Gray-Little said during a meeting of the Kansas Board of Regents’ Coun-

and when the prognosis was for additional challenging budget years,” according to the memo. Zhang’s spouse was also able to find an ideal job in Ann Arbor, the memo said. “The loss of Professor Zhang has been a major setback” for bioinformatics and molecular biosciences departments at KU, the memo said. Higher education has been cut by approximately $100 million during the past two years. Gov. Sam Brownback’s proposed budget makes no additional cuts. He has proposed $15 million in new research funding, divided equally among KU, Kansas

cil of Presidents, which is composed of regents university chiefs. In November, the Council of Presidents had discussed trying to gather figures on the number of faculty who have left recently for better offers, and forwarding that information to policymakers. But on Wednesday, Gray-Little said there “was not a clear pattern” of faculty losses across all regents universities. So the council decided to focus on several specific instances of faculty being lured away. — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

Morris said there are no quick fixes to KPERS’ funding problems, but that he hoped to put together legislation that stabilizes the system.

Democrats would join the effort. Republicans hold commanding advantages in the Legislature, 92-33 in the House and 32-8 in the Senate. Democrats said the issues cited by Brownback are continually worked on by the Legislature and defy easy answers. “We need to take however much time it takes to make sure that we get it right and not do something quickly for the sake of expediency,” said House Democratic Leader Paul Davis of Lawrence. — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

DOUGLAS COUNTY COMMISSION

Task force emphasizes need for heritage resource inventory By Chansi Long Special to the Journal-World

Ken Grotewiel, facilitator of the Natural and Cultural Heritage Task Force, presented the group’s preliminary report to county commissioners on Wednesday. One item Grotewiel stressed was the need for a countywide inventory on heritage resources. The inventory would involve culling information from other databases and record piles to put all of the material into one place. “There is a huge amount of information out there, but not all of it is one place,” says Grotewiel. “It’s on ongoing inventory that needs to be done.” Currently the task force is charged with earmarking

$350,000 that Douglas County Commissioners allocated for heritage conservation last year. The preliminary report, presented at Wednesday’s meeting, outlines ways that money could be spent. Task force members also spoke on how they will fetch adequate and consistent funding in the future. Larry McElwain, task force member, recommended that commissioners explore other funding sources, including a locally approved sales tax. The task force encourages people to respond to its preliminary report. “We would really like input,” says Grotewiel. “We do want people to comment.” The task force will hold a public meeting at 7 p.m. Feb. 3 at the Douglas County Courthouse, 1100 Mass.

Conservatives file abortion legislation By John Milburn Associated Press Writer

TOPEKA — Filling a request from Gov. Sam Brownback, a coalition of Kansas House conservatives filed legislation on Wednesday to tighten state regulations on abortion. The bill would change Kansas law to require parental consent for teenagers to get abortions and increase reporting requirements by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment. It also would give the attorney general and county prosecutors access to state health reports on abortions performed in the state. Rep. Lance Kinzer, an Olathe Republican, said that the bill also contained lateterm abortion provisions vetoed over the past three years by Democratic Govs. Kathleen Sebelius and Mark Parkinson. Brownback had asked for the measures in his State of the State address. The bill has 63 of the 125 House members signed on as sponsors. It takes 63 votes in the chamber for measures to pass. “This is the beginning of the process of the Legislature taking steps to comply with that request,” Kinzer said. He said the legislation was aimed at preventing another doctor from coming to Kansas to begin providing late-term abortions following the May 2009 killing of Wichita’s Dr. George Tiller. Kinzer also said the law

would bring Kansas in line with the federal ban on a procedure opponents call partial-birth abortion. “Certainly, I think legislative inaction, at this point in time, really opens up that opportunity,” Kinzer said. “We think it’s important to act proactively to make sure that the same loopholes and lack of enforcement that allowed Kansas to become a LEGISLATURE late-term abortion destination spot don’t exist in our laws going forward.” Planned Parenthood spokeswoman Sarah Gillooly said since Tiller’s death no abortions were being provided in Kansas after the 22nd week of pregnancy. “I that think it’s a shame that politicians are spending taxpayer time and money to regulate a procedure that doesn’t even occur in our state,” Gillooly said. She said after Tiller’s murder by an anti-abortion activist and efforts by former Republican Attorney General Phill Kline to prosecute abortion providers that the climate in Kansas is not conducive for abortion providers to relocate to the state. “I think it’s totally unfounded fear. What physician would want to provide that care in the state?” Gillooly said. The legislation would

increase reporting requirements for the KDHE, requiring providers to disclose a specific medical diagnosis to justify the abortion of a viable pregnancy. State law says such pregnancies can’t be terminated at 22 weeks or later unless the woman faces death or a “substantial and irreversible impairment” of a major bodily function, including her mental health, if the pregnancy continues. The bill would require a “good faith” medical determination of such a condition. Anti-abortion legislators have long complained that the KDHE was lax in interpreting these requirements and allowed providers to give few specifics about why abortions were required. Kinzer said he hoped that with the new measure to give greater guidance and the change of administration the lax practice would cease. “For many years, it was this lack of proper enforcement of that particular standard that created a loophole, and quite frankly, made Kansas a leader unfortunately in the field of late-term abortion,” Kinzer said. Other provisions would require more reporting of evidence of sexual abuse of minors who are seeking abortions, as well as allowing for civil lawsuits for violation of late-term abortion restrictions. The bill is scheduled to have a hearing next week in the House Federal and State Affairs Committee.

State’s tobacco control earns ‘A’

House votes to repeal health care law Swiftly honoring a campaign pledge, newly empowered Republicans pushed legislation to repeal the nation’s year-old health care overhaul through the House Wednesday night, brushing aside implacable opposition in the Senate and a veto threat from President Barack Obama. The 245-189 vote was largely along party lines, and cleared the way for the second phase of the “repeal and replace” promise that victorious Republicans made to the voters last fall. GOP officials said that in the coming months, congressional committees will propose changes to the existing legislation, calling for elimination of a requirement for individuals to purchase coverage, for example, and recommending curbs on medical malpractice lawsuits. Republicans also intend to try to reverse many of the changes Democrats made to Medicare Advantage, the private alternative to the traditional government-run health care program for seniors. Like the repeal bill itself, these other measures will require Senate approval and a presidential signature to take effect, and the prospect is for months of maneuvering on the issue.

Hu concedes China’s rights need help In a rare concession on a highly sensitive issue, Chinese President Hu Jintao used his White House visit on Wednesday to acknowledge “a lot still needs to be done” to improve human rights in his nation accused of repressing its people. President Barack Obama pushed China to adopt fundamental freedoms but assured Hu the U.S. considers the communist nation a friend and vital economic partner. Hu’s comments met with immediate skepticism from human rights advocates, who dismissed them as words backed by no real history of action. Hu contended his country has “made enormous progress” but provided no specifics. Still, his remarks seemed to hearten and surprise U.S. officials, coming during an elaborate visit that centered on boosting trade and trust between the world’s two largest economies. 2 | PHOENIX

Federal grand jury indicts Loughner A federal grand jury on Wednesday indicted the suspect in the deadly Arizona shooting rampage that wounded U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. The indictment against Jared Loughner, 22, accuses him of attempting to assassinate Giffords and trying to kill two of her aides. It does not include two murder charges listed in an earlier criminal complaint for the deaths of Giffords aide Gabe Zimmerman, 30, and U.S. District Judge John COURTS Roll, 63. Those are potential death penalty charges. A statement from the U.S. attorney for Arizona, Dennis Burke, said those require a more painstaking process under Justice Department rules. Burke said the initial indictment issued by a grand jury in Tucson was just the beginning of federal legal action against the 22-year-old Tucson resident. 3 | TUNISIA

As a police officer, Mike Verbanic knows domestic violence can carry a stigma. “Unfortunately, it’s something that sometimes happens behind the scenes. It’s not something that’s talked about a lot,” he said. In his new job, Verbanic will focus on helping those victims who might not feel comfortable coming forward. Tarik Khatib, Lawrence’s interim police chief, on Wednesday promoted Verbanic to detective, a job in which he will primarily investigate domestic violence cases. The department recently received a grant for the position.

“I think the department has a very important opportunity to do a lot of good work and assist this group of victims that we’re talking about,” Verbanic said. “I take that opportunity very seriously, and I look forward to working not only with everyone in this room and this department but with other agencies.” A leader with one of those agencies said she was thrilled with the creation of the position. “The more experienced professionals providing these services the better,” said Audra Fullerton, director of community engagement for the Willow Domestic Violence Center.

Tunisia’s new government said Wednesday it has freed all the country’s political prisoners and also moved to track down assets stashed overseas by its deposed president and his widely disliked family. Tensions on the streets appeared to be calming as the administration tried to show it was distancing itself from the old guard. Hundreds of protesters led a rally in central Tunis demanding that former allies of deposed President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali stop clinging to power. Later, about 30 youths in the capital broke a curfew and set up camp near the heavily guarded Interior Ministry, bringing mats, food and water for an overnight sit-in. Police didn’t bother them. In recent days, police had fired tear gas and clubbed protesters. The U.N. said more than 100 people have died in the unrest that surrounded Ben Ali’s ouster.

SmartStar questions answered in chat

Abortion doctor charged with murder A doctor whose abortion clinic was described as a filthy, foul-smelling “house of horrors” that was overlooked by regulators for years was charged Wednesday with murder, accused of delivering seven babies alive and then using scissors to kill them. Dr. Kermit Gosnell was also charged with murder in the death of a woman who suffered an overdose of painkillers while awaiting an abortion. In a nearly 300-page grand jury report filled with ghastly, stomach-turning detail, prosecutors said Pennsylvania regulators ignored complaints of barbaric conditions at Gosnell’s clinic, which catered to poor, immigrant and minority women in the city’s impoverished West Philadelphia section. Gosnell, 69, was arrested and charged with eight counts of murder in all. Nine of Gosnell’s employees — including his wife, a cosmetologist who authorities say performed abortions — also were charged.

Smart metering is most basically an upgrade to the technology that’s in place today. There will be much more detailed information available to you on your energy use and it will be more timely, generally up to date to the day prior; it is not real-time information. No one needs to do anything different than they do today with a smart meter, but it does provide that option. It also helps set the foundation from which we can offer more programs and services to customers. Even if you aren’t interested in the new services, we will have better information to operate the electric system. The smart meters will help us know where power is out and back on, and other system operations infor-

mation that will help us improve service quality and reliability. Will smart meters be available to those who live outside the city of Lawrence? The first group of meters will be within the city limits. We will look at that point to expand to some county locations but we don’t have where or when determined. How do you get information from your smart meter if you don’t have Internet access? We’re still sorting through some of that answer. I can tell you our customer service representatives will be able to give you the information that’s on

Kansas finally got an “A” on its report card from the American Lung Association. It’s for passing the Indoor Clean Air Act on Feb. 25, 2010. The law prohibits smoking in all public places and places of employment, including bars and restaurants. Kansas was the only state in 2010 to pass a comprehensive smoke-free law, and it was highlighted in the association’s ninth annual “State of Tobacco Control” report, which was released early today. It noted: “This victory for public health was a long and winding road with many challenges along the way, but elected officials recognized the need to place public health above business concerns.” Kansas joined 26 other states and the District of Columbia that have passed such laws. The “A” is a big improvement from last year’s “F” in the “smoke-free air” category. However, there are grumblings among legislators and talk of possibly overturning the law or part of it. In three other categories regarding tobacco control policies and regulations, the state’s grades remained the same : Two “F”s and a “D.” Kansas received failing grades for: ● Lack of tobacco prevention and control spending. The state spends only $3.5 million — or 2 percent — of the approximately $175 million it collects every year from tobacco settlement and tax money. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends spending $32 million. ● Limited coverage in cessation treatment programs for Medicaid recipients and state employees. For Medicaid recipients, there are limits on the duration of coverage, an annual limit on quit attempts and co-payments required. It also noted that private insurance companies are not required to offer any coverage. Kansas received a “D” for: ● Cigarette tax of 79 cents per pack. The national average is $1.34 per pack. Only 15 states have a lower cigarette tax rate. The rates range from $4.35 in New York to 17 cents in Missouri. The last time Kansas raised its cigarette tax was in 2003 with a 9 cent increase. Some Kansas facts provided by the association: ● Economic costs due to smoking: $1.7 billion annually. ● Adult smoking rate: 18 percent. ● High school smoking rate: 17 percent. ● Number of tobacco-related deaths: 3,800 annually. — Health reporter Karrey Britt can be reached at 832-7190.

The outgoing superintendent of the McLouth school district is a finalist to become the new superintendent for a district near Garden City. Jean Rush, McLouth’s superintendent since 1999, is scheduled to interview today for the top administrative post in the Holcomb school district. Three other candidates already have interviewed, and members of the Holcomb school board could have the top candidate identified by this evening, said Demitry Evancho, the district’s interim superintendent. Rush had been assistant superintendent in the Nickerson-South Hutchinson school district from 1993 to 1999 before becoming superintendent in McLouth. The McLouth district has 500 students in three schools, all educated within a single building serving rural areas of Jefferson County north of Lawrence and a small portion of adjacent Leavenworth County. “If you can make it more than 10 years and maintain continuity in a program, then you’ve got something going for you,” Evancho said. No matter what happens with the Holcomb job, Rush will be leaving the McLouth

district by the end of the academic year. In October, members of the McLouth school board agreed that they would not extend her contract; by the end of the month, Rush had submitted her resignation, effective at the end of the academic year. Ed Courtney, a member of the McLouth school board, said that there “had been some differences” between Rush and school principals, contributing to the decision to seek a new leader. “She’d been here for a while, and we thought it was time for a new face,” Courtney said. “She’s actually very good with her job — very good financially, with numbers and stuff like that. But we’ve got some new board members on, and they were for a change.” Rush earns about $80,000 a year in McLouth, a salary Courtney expects to increase for the next superintendent. He and fellow board members are meeting at 5:30 p.m. today to narrow the field of 10 applicants to four finalists, who will be scheduled for interviews next week in McLouth. Courtney said board members could have a new superintendent selected by the end of next week. — Schools reporter Mark Fagan can be reached at 832-7188.

A new coffee shop is opening at Lawrence Memorial Hospital. Terri Woodson, an emergency room nurse, and her daughter, Kelly, hope to open The Koffee Korner across from the gift shop on Jan. 28. They will offer specialty coffee drinks, smoothies and pastries. Hours will be 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. weekdays and 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. Saturdays. LMH leaders provided an update Wednesday on a number of other projects: ● The Endoscopy Center and Pain Management Clinic. They relocated last week from LMH South into 16,700 square feet on the first floor of the hospital. The move is part of a $6.7 million project to renovate the old surgery department in the heart of the hospital, 325 Maine. ● Laboratory. It is expanding into the old surgery area and being renovated. The expansion will nearly double its size to 14,900 square feet. The first phase was done Nov. 30 and included a new waiting area and more privacy for blood draws. The outpatient lab, which was relocated next to the gift shop, has been consolidated into the new area. The project should be complete in May. ● Mario’s Closet. Last summer, former Kansas University basketball star Mario Chalmers donated $25,000 to establish Mario’s Closet at LMH. It will be a specialty shop for a variety of free or low-cost accessories for cancer patients. The shop is scheduled to open this sum-

But a defense attorney for defendant Sedryck E. Welch said during the trial’s second day that Welch’s former roommate, Nick Marengo, seemed to recall more specific details for jurors than he had at the preliminary hearing several months ago. Authorities accuse Welch of using the shotgun to rob a clerk on Aug. 3, 2009, at Conoco, 2447 W. Sixth St. Police had released store surveillance photos of a man with a gun that night.

After months of investigation, police arrested Welch, and he was charged with aggravated robbery in April 2010. Marengo said Welch was living in Lawrence in August 2009, but according to jail records, Welch had a Topeka address when he was arrested in 2010. District Judge Michael Malone told jurors that due to the winter storm the trial is scheduled to resume at 1 p.m. today.

LAWRENCE POLICE DEPARTMENT

New website to include map of city’s 2010 crimes By George Diepenbrock gdiepenbrock@ljworld.com

The Lawrence police department today plans to make public its new website that includes a map of all crimes reported in the city in 2010. “Citizens will be able to go in and look at a certain area and see exactly what type of crime has occurred there,” said Matt Sarna, the department’s public affairs sergeant. The online crime map will include burglaries, batteries, thefts, liquor violations, sexual assaults and weapons violations.

The department has entered the data from 2010, and officers will have access to the map when they respond to calls in neighborhoods. That way they can check for trends, Sarna said. Department staff members have worked for months on the new website. The online address for the site will be announced today. The department also plans to seek help from the public by listing people who have two or more outstanding warrants for arrest and posting announcements about stolen vehicles. Members of the public can also leave compliments for

Police have said that officers in 2009 investigated 975 domestic disturbance calls, plus 71 rapes and 598 incidents of domestic battery. Police and prosecutors have said the cases are often complicated to prosecute because victims and suspects have some type of ongoing relationship, unlike with most other crimes.

Verbanic, who grew up in the Kansas City area, came to Lawrence in 1991 and graduated from Kansas University with a biology degree. His twin brother, Steve Verbanic, is also a patrol officer. Mike Verbanic started as a Lawrence officer in 1998 and worked for two years beginning in 2005 as a juvenile crime investigator. “He really developed a reputation as a tenacious investi-

officers online or download paperwork to send in complaints. The website will still include public access to PDF copies of offense and accident reports. “We want to be more accountable and visible to the public,” Sarna said about the website’s overhaul. As for the crime map, Sarna said staff members plan to work on mapping past years as well and, it is hoped, update it weekly or almost daily for the current year.

Federal officials say MagnaGro owner violated probation terms By George Diepenbrock gdiepenbrock@ljworld.com

Federal off icials say a Lawrence man who owns MagnaGro International was taken into custody last week amid allegations that he violated his probation from a 2009 case involving illegally discharging fertilizer waste into the city’s sewer system. Richard Heffron, a supervisory deputy for the U.S. Marshal’s Office in Topeka, said Raymond Glen Sawyer, 59, was arrested on a warrant Friday and taken to Douglas County Jail. He later was transferred to Topeka, where he is being

held until a hearing at 1 p.m. Friday. Officials have not provided details about the alleged probation violation, but a sealed order has been filed in U.S. District Court. In the 2009 case, Sawyer pleaded guilty to discharging waste from a fertilizer operation into the city’s sewer system. He was placed on probation for five years. Court documents from 2009 do not detail Sawyer’s probation terms, other than he and the company, 600 E. 22nd St., had to pay a $240,000 fine. Sawyer’s defense attorney Chris Joseph said he plans to contest the government’s

request to detain Sawyer while the case is pending. In October, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency issued a civil complaint and compliance order against MagnaGro for failing to tell the agency what hazardous wastes were on the site. In April 2010, two men died when they were overcome by fumes from a material being mixed at the site. City officials later declared the site “unfit for human occupancy” and boarded the doors. — Reporter George Diepenbrock can be reached at 832-7144. Follow him at Twitter.com/lawrencecrime.

your account, and we’re exploring ways to get this to non-Internet customers in some kind of monthly summary report format. You can access the account from any Internet-connected location, such as the public library. Q: Across the country there have been reports of smar t meters providing inaccurate data and producing skyrocketing electric bills. In California, smart meters have prompted investigations, moratoriums and lawsuits. What is Westar doing to avoid these problems? A: We at Westar watch the trends and events in other locations on a continual basis and are well aware of the issues in California and Texas. The billing questions have been shown to be a result of changes in rate plans and lack of customer communication vs. meter accuracy. San Jose Mercury News reported in April that eight of 5.5 million meters were found to be out of meter accuracy limits. There are similar test results from independent auditors in Texas where meters went in at a time of severe winter weather. A lot of the issues seem to revolve around poor customer communication and response as a primary cause. We are working very hard to be out in front of the community and responsive to questions on the project.

Interestingly, there are some very successful smart meter projects in California where good communication has been in place, you can check out companies like San Diego Gas and Electric, Southern California Edison and Sacramento Municipal Utility District to name a few. Q: Can you give us more information about where the next round of smart meters will be installed in Lawrence? A: We’ll be determining that over the next several weeks and will be providing

updates on our website at westarenergy.com/smartstar. There’s a page with information on the installation process there, and a map that we’ll update as soon as that information is available. At this time, we are almost complete with the pilot neighborhood meter exchange and plan to start the citywide (exchange) in late May. You can also sign up for RSS feeds from the web page so you can stay updated as information is posted. — Reporter Christine Metz can be reached at 832-6352.

Government trying to do too much

EDITORIALS

Key leaders Serving on the Lawrence school board is a tough job, but we hope some able candidates will step up to the challenge.

T

here is no more important job in Lawrence than serving on the Lawrence school board. Lawrence residents like to think of this as a community that values and supports education. We’re the home of the state’s largest university, for Pete’s sake. We have a highly educated population. Students educated in Lawrence public schools have gone on to prominent positions of leadership in the nation and world. We’re all about education. Until, apparently, it comes to being willing to step up and take on one of the community’s most important volunteer jobs: serving on the school board that makes the key decisions that guide the future of our public schools. Although the filing deadline is less than a week away, only two people have filed for election to one of four school board seats that will be filled this year. One is Marlene Merrill, who is serving her first term on the board; the other is Shannon Kimball, a member of the task force currently studying elementary school facilities. Three incumbent board members have indicated they don’t plan to seek re-election. That’s fair. All three have served multiple terms on the board. It’s time for some other people to take a turn. Three seats on the Lawrence City Commission also will be filled in the April 5 election. Four candidates have filed in that race, which is enough to fill the seats, but there’s plenty of room for additional candidates in both the city and school races. Unfortunately, while serving on the school board is one of the community’s most important jobs, it’s also one of the most thankless. Board members receive no pay, but they are the targets of plenty of abuse when they have to make tough decisions. Given the prospects for additional cuts in state funding for public schools, there are likely to be many tough decisions ahead. That’s why the community should make every effort to have smart, well-motivated people on the board that will make the decisions. Current and former board members noted in a recent Journal-World story that serving on the board is a rewarding experience, a way to make a concrete contribution to the future of Lawrence and its residents. They are absolutely right. We hope some great candidates will surface before the filing deadline at noon Tuesday along with a cast of volunteers that will support them not only during their election campaigns but after some of them are elected to office next April.

WASHINGTON — It takes a worried man to sing a worried song, and in a recent speech that seemed like Larry Summers’ swan song, the president’s departed economic adviser warned that America is “at risk of a profound demoralization with respect to government.” He fears a future in which “an inadequately resourced government performs badly, leading to further demands that it be cut back, exacerbating performance problems, deepening the backlash and creating a vicious cycle.” The idea that America’s problem of governance is one of inadequate resources misses this lesson of the last half-century: No amount of resources can prevent government from performing poorly when it tries to perform too many tasks, or particular tasks for which it is inherently unsuited. Actually, government is not sufficiently demoralized. The hubris that is the occupational hazard and defining trait of the political class continues to cause government to overpromise and underperform. This class blithely considers itself exempt from the tyranny of the bell-shaped curve — the fact that in most occupations a few people are excellent, a few are awful, and most are average. In fact, the bell curve is particularly pertinent to government. Surgeons achieve eminence by what they do “in office” — in operating rooms, performing surgery. Politicians achieve emi-

The hubris that is the occupational hazard and defining trait of the political class continues to cause government to overpromise and underperform.” nence simply by securing office — by winning elections, a skill often related loosely, if at all, to their performance in office. James Q. Wilson, America’s preeminent social scientist, has noted that until relatively recently, “politics was about only a few things; today, it is about nearly everything.” Until the 1930s, or perhaps the 1960s, there was a “legitimacy barrier” to federal government activism: When new policies were proposed, the first debate was about whether the federal government could properly act at all on the subject. Today, there is no barrier to the promiscuous multiplication of programs, because no program is really new. Rather, it is an extension, modification or enlargement of something gov-

ernment is already doing. The vicious cycle that should worry Summers is the reverse of the one he imagines. It is not government being “cut back” because of disappointments that reinforce themselves. Rather, it is government squandering its limited resources, including the resource of competence, in reckless expansions of its scope. “There has been,” Wilson writes, “a transformation of public expectations about the scope of federal action, one that has put virtually everything on Washington’s agenda and left nothing off.” Try, Wilson suggests, to think “of a human want or difficulty that is not now defined as a ‘public policy problem.’” Summers leaves a federal government funded by a continuing resolution. Congress has been so busy passing gargantuan legislation to expand government’s responsibilities that it has not had enough time, energy or sense of responsibility to pass a budget. And the pathologies of expanding government are becoming worse because of two concepts Summers mentioned in his valedictory — Baumol’s Disease, and Moynihan’s Corollary to it. William J. Baumol, Princeton economics professor emeritus, said that in certain economic sectors — e.g., labor-intensive service industries — productivity will increase, if at all, more slowly than in the rest of the economy. The late Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan’s corollary was that such serv-

ices — e.g., teaching, nursing, the performing arts — tend to migrate to the public sector. Moynihan noted that if you want a string quartet, you must hire four musicians with four instruments, just as in Chopin’s day. “Productivity,” said Moynihan, “just hasn’t changed much. And when it does — e.g., playing the Minute Waltz in 50 seconds — it doesn’t seem to work right.” Actually, lopping 10 seconds off the waltz subtracts from musicians’ productivity. Moynihan noted a danger to his party in the tendency for the “stagnant services” to become government services: “The Democratic Party is identified with this very public sector in which relative costs are rising. By contrast, the Republican Party is identified with the private sector where relative costs are declining.” The public sector’s involuntary tendency to become, regarding productivity, a concentration of stagnation is a reason for government to become more circumspect than it has been about the voluntary acquisition of vast new responsibilities, such as micromanagement of health care’s 17 percent of the economy. As Summers returns to Harvard, he is hopeful because “markets climb walls of worry.” That is, American history is replete with self-refuting prophesies of peril — predictions of national decline that prompt renewals. — George Will is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.

A newborn baby, apparently only a few hours old, had been found abanYEARS doned in the stairAGO well of an apartIN 1986 ment complex at 2400 Ala. The male infant had been taken to Lawrence Memorial Hospital and was reportedly in good condition. Police and the local office of the Kansas Social and Rehabilitation Services were investigating.

Douglas County Welfare officials were investigating two cases in which YEARS Kansas University AGO students were IN 1971 reportedly receiving welfare assistance. Such assistance was in violation of a County Commission ruling denying welfare to students. The official Douglas County population had surpassed 55,000 according to the most recent census.

PUBLIC FORUM

Expensive change To the editor: The school board’s decision to change the names of the junior high schools is not practical. While the district budget is low, renaming the schools would result in spending money that the district does not have. To rename the schools would mean buying new signs, stationery and uniforms, items that tend to be more expensive. If the district is going to spend money, it should be spent to help with the education of children by purchasing newer texts books, new instruments for the music department, art supplies and especially keeping teachers’ jobs. Emily Ortiz, Lawrence

KNI closure To the editor. My wife, Ann Marshall-Levine, was superintendent of Kansas Neurological Institute for about eight years some time in the 1980s when the facility was larger than it is today. In her memory and on behalf of the remaining severely impacted residents, I urge Gov. Brownback to reconsider his budget proposal to close the facility. On KNI’s 50th birthday, Ann and I revisited the remaining residents in

compassionate Christian. But what can he or I say about Tim McVeigh, Eric Rudolph, the man who killed George Tiller in his church? We weren’t involved, they belong to another sect, they are not really Christian? He requires Muslims to close mosques and depose imams who promote violence. Come, Hugh, shall we run off and close the Christian identity compound? Or, if you want to stay closer to home, let’s depose Fred Phelps. Westboro Baptist hasn’t killed anyone, it’s true, but they promote hatred and an atmosphere of violence. (Note: I don’t think Westboro Baptist is Christian, but isn’t that just the same excuse that Wentz accuses moderate Muslims of making?) How can we call on our Muslim brothers and sisters to do what we can’t do for our own faith? Instead, let us all join against hatred wherever found. To the editor: Anne L. Haehl, Like Hugh Wentz (Public Forum, Lawrence Jan. 15), I decry violence against Christians (or anyone), whether done by Muslims or anyone else. (Think of the Christian-on-Christian violence in To the editor: Northern Ireland for years.) To paraphrase Mark Twain, there When acts of violence by Muslims occur, Muslims, he says, say they were are three types of lies: small lies, great

Tell them they will have to leave the protection of their room, the only home they know, tell them you can no longer feed them, protect them and can no longer allow them to work in the job programs that KNI has worked hard to provide for them. Tell them that the caring and loving KNI staff can no longer be with them to offer love and caring. Gov. Parkinson had a different proposal that would leave KNI in place for at least three years. Perhaps that is an intermediate solution. If, after talking with each of the residents, Gov. Brownback decides to close KNI he will at least be aware of what he does. Bruce Levine, Lawrence

elected and now sworn-in conservative governor mount his attack on the “liberals of Kansas”? His proposed budget answers that question. It is upon the schools and the children of Kansas that the first blow is struck. He insists it is necessary to start there. Well, what did you think you were going to get as governor when you voted for Sam Brownback who, in my opinion, wants very badly to use Kansas as a launching platform to make a run for the office of president? What is more important than an opportunity for the best possible education for our children wherein we find our future? Apparently having tea with Palin and her supporters is more important to their political base. Yes, I believe he is keeping his eyes upon the prize of the Oval Office. Of course, this is only my opinion and observations based on my past experiences of every political campaign from FDR on. I look forward to the insults which will be hurled at my proudly labeled “liberal” opinion. “Ignorant men don’t know what good they hold in their hands until they have flung it away.” — Sophocles.

From the Lawrence Daily World for Jan. 20, 1911: YEARS “Supt. F. P. Smith AGO is confined to his IN 1911 home this week with three fractured ribs. The accident occurred Wednesday in his own dooryard. The Superintendent had started to the barn with a bucket of water and on a particularly treacherous spot of ice, lost his balance. In falling he struck the bucket, the impact being sufficient to crack three ribs on the right side.” “Jefferson City, Mo. — Representative John Burgin of Gentry county, [having] announced his purpose of starting a matrimonial bureau to obtain wives for the bachelors in the Legislature, has received a dozen letters already asking for details of his project and for photographs of the men. One girl says she is ready to come to Jefferson City immediately, if Rep. Burgin will only promise to have a ‘good Democratic husband’ waiting for her at the depot. Another girl promises ‘hot biscuits’ every morning for breakfast, and she’s not particular about the politics of her future husband, either. A St. Joseph stenographer sent this application: ‘I want to marry one who lives in the country and has a fine farm with a house and hot and cold water and steam heat. I don’t think I am bad looking at all, but he can judge for himself.’” — Compiled by Sarah St. John

BAYLOR WOMEN 76, KANSAS 37

Mismatch

Tom Keegan tkeegan@ljworld.com

Griner recalls Alcindor The natural place the mind wanders when watching a superior athlete play in person for the first time is to a question: What other great is called to mind? Watching center Brittney Griner play Wednesday for No. 1-ranked Baylor in Allen Fieldhouse, the answer popped into the head swiftly. The way she plays the game recalls KareemAbdul Jabbar when he wore UCLA across his chest and answered to the name Lew Alcindor. Abdul-Jabbar, when his name was Alcindor, stood above the other nine players on the floor in stature and performance. So does Griner. Abdul-Jabbar played with the smooth, coordinated athleticism more typical of a shorter player. So does Griner. Like Abdul-Jabbar, Griner seems to lead with her brain, leaving her emotions out of the equation, seldom changing her facial expression. Just because the cerebral, stoic types don’t open windows to their emotions, that doesn’t mean they don’t sometimes boil beneath the surface. Kareem’s boiling point came two minutes into the 1978-79 season-opener, playing for the Lakers on his old homecourt, Milwaukee Arena, against his first NBA team, the Bucks. Abdul-Jabbar took an elbow from Bucks center Kent Benson and retaliated by punching him so hard he knocked him out, so hard Abdul-Jabbar’s broken hand kept him sidelined by for two months. Thirty-two-plus years later, Abdul-Jabbar is not remembered for that. At most, it’s an afterthought. He’s remembered for being the best college basketball player in history, leading UCLA to an 88-2 record in his three seasons and for perfecting a shot, the sky hook, that neither before nor since has been matched. He’s remembered for scoring more points than anybody in NBA games. As a freshman, Griner punched Texas Tech’s Jordan Barncastle in the face so hard she broke her nose. It came after Barncastle tried to hurl her to the floor. Who knows what made Abdul-Jabbar and Griner step so far out of character. It could be they snapped because they simply couldn’t relate to resorting to playing with excessive physicality a game they play so gracefully, artists reacting to their canvases getting sullied by graffiti shooting out of a spray-paint can. The way Griner plays and promotes the game, handling interviews with such professionalism, already has helped the incident that drew her a two-game suspension move on the path toward footnote status. Baylor, a talented team enough to handle Kansas even if Griner hadn’t suited up, won this one, 76-37, with the help of Griner’s 22 points, 15 rebounds and five blocked shots. I shared with Griner that she reminded me of Abdul-Jabbar playing for UCLA, which made the 6-foot-8 sophomore from Houston smile. “I watch clips of him on YouTube, actually,” she said. “I love the way he played. I hope I can play like him.” Griner’s abilities are unmatched in the women’s game. “There are not going to be many girls who come along who are built like Brittney who play above the rim,” Baylor coach Kim Mulkey said. Griner’s only dunk Wednesday came in warmups, by which time the outcome had been determined.

Baylor hammers Kansas

BAYLOR STANDOUT BRITTNEY GRINER LOOMS over Kansas University’s Carolyn Davis in the low post. Griner had 22 points, 15 rebounds and five blocked shots in the top-ranked Bears’ 76-37 rout Wednesday at Allen Fieldhouse.

Knocking off No. 1 Baylor — even without Brittney Griner — would have been a tough order for the Kansas University women’s basketball team. Factor in Griner, the Bears’ 6foot-8, sophomore phenom, and the Jayhawks had little chance at all on Wednesday night, when they were flattened, 76-37, by the top-ranked Bears at Allen Fieldhouse. “I don’t think they came in here and left any doubt that they’re the best team in America right now,” coach Bonnie Henrickson said. “We didn’t fight them much on that, unfortunately.” Featuring an array of low post moves, Griner scored at will in the paint and was an even bigger force on defense. In 31 minutes, Griner racked up 22 points and 15 rebounds, blocked five shots and used her 88-inch wingspan to alter countless others. “She’s a once-in-a-lifetime kind of player,” Baylor coach Kim Mulkey said. As if Griner and her disruptive length weren’t enough to deal with, the Jayhawks faced a size disadvantage at every other position as well, making for a rough night at both ends of the floor. Going up against the Big 12’s stingiest defensive unit, the Jayhawks found little rhythm on offense. Mere minutes after the opening tip, the Bears (17-1 overall, 40 Big 12) surged to an 11-0 run. KU couldn’t come up with an answer until a layup at the 15:31 mark by Carolyn Davis. “I thought we looked dazed,” Henrickson said. “I was shocked that we didn’t have more fire and more toughness. I was shocked.” The Jayhawks trailed 40-14 at the half after shooting shoot only 20.8 percent and getting outrebounded, 30-10. For the game, KU was outrebounded, 55-25, and relented 21

KANSAS MEN’S BASKETBALL

Bears, not bench, inspired Selby By Gary Bedore gbedore@ljworld.com

Josh Selby, who stroked a three-pointer for Kansas University’s first basket, looked like a guy who had something to prove Monday night at Baylor. Not necessarily the case, says the even-tempered freshman combo guard, who insists his sitting the final 16 minutes of Saturday’s 63-60 home victory over Nebraska had nothing to do with his strong play in an 85-65 KU rout of the Bears in Waco, Texas. “It didn’t upset me that I didn’t play because, of course, we got the win,” Selby said of the Nebraska game, in which he finished with three points, four turnovers and no assists in just 13 minutes. “I just wanted to come out (against Baylor) and focus on the mistakes I made against Nebraska and make sure I didn’t make them again. I was just motivated that we were playing Baylor.” Selby finished the ESPN Big Monday game with 12 points off 5-of-11 shooting (two of six threes). He had three assists with three steals and three turnovers in 29 minutes.

ONLINE SPECIAL ■ For the past three days, Journal-World sports reporter Matt Tait has been in Normal, Ill., getting a feel for where new Kansas University athletic director Sheahon Zenger is coming from and what the people at Illinois State have to say about him. For a look at the highlights from Tait’s trip, log on to his “Tale of the Tait” blog at http://www2.kusports.com/weblog s/tale-tait/. Also, be sure to check Sunday’s Journal-World for the full story about the man who will succeed Lew Perkins as KU’s AD.

“We were just humble. We wanted to get the win very bad. We like to compete every game,” Selby said. “I don’t think we could play any better than the first half (in which KU hit 23 of 29 shots for 79.3 percent). We were playing defense. We were scoring. We just looked like a good team out there.” Nick Krug/Journal-World Photo For the year, the 6-foot-2 Baltimore native has averaged 12.1 KANSAS GUARD JOSH SELBY SWOOPS IN FOR A BUCKET in front of Baylor defenders Perry Please see SELBY, page 3B Jones, left, and Anthony Jones.

Illinois prep RB commits to Kansas J-W Staff Report

Anthony Pierson, a 5-foot-11, 175-pound senior running back from East St. Louis High School in downstate Illinois, has orally committed to Kansas University’s football team, Rivals.com reports. A four-star athlete, Pierson rushed for 1,408 yards off 120 carries and scored 22 touchdowns in just six games at East St. Louis. He chose KU over Missouri, Iowa, Arkansas, Kansas State, Minnesota, Illinois and others. He had been committed to Mizzou but decommitted in November. “On my visit to Kansas all of the people were real nice,” Pierson told Rivals.com. “They all seemed real. I saw the depth chart and looked things over before I decided to pick Kansas. I feel very relaxed now that I made my commitment.” Pierson is rated the fourth overall player in Illinois and the 17th-best athlete in the country. He has been recruited as a running back, slot receiver and a safety.

KANSAS UNIVERSITY

NATIONAL BRIEFS Texas, ESPN reach deal AUSTIN, TEXAS — The University of Texas, which already has one of the wealthiest athletic programs in the country, is lining up for even more money. Texas and ESPN announced a 20year, $300 million deal Wednesday for a 24-hour television network that will broadcast Longhorns sports, including at least one football game and eight basketball games per season, and other sports and academic content. “We want to define what it means to be ’the’ public university,” Texas President William Powers said. “The challenge is to create new sources of revenue to support our mission.” The deal includes Texas’ licensing and marketing partner IMG College, with more than 80 percent of revenue set to go to the university. It will not replace existing television deals between the Big 12 and both ESPN-ABC and Fox. ESPN will handle distribution of the still-unnamed network via cable or satellite in Texas and other states and already has had preliminary

conversations with Time Warner Cable and Comcast Corp. The network is scheduled to launch in September and will broadcast at least 200 Texas sporting events per year. The contact also raises the question of whether Texas would consider going independent if the network proves successful. The Big 12 will drop to 10 members in July when it loses Colorado (Pac 12) and Nebraska (Big Ten). Texas athletic director DeLoss Dodds said Texas is not going independent. “Absolutely no. There’s no thought of moving, no thought of being an independent,” Dodds said. “We love our conference.”

FORMER JAYHAWKS Sharp to play in IFL WICHITA — Former Kansas University running back Jake Sharp has signed with the Wichita Wild, an Indoor Football League franchise. “I’ve been in talks with the Wild since last spring. We met for dinner

Tuesday night — Wink Hartman (team owner), John Blazek (general manager) and coach (Ken) Matous — and I just feel like it is a great opportunity for me on and off the field, with some business ventures I'm intrested in,” Sharp said. “They are excited about me playing a slot, Wes Welker-style spot, and I'm anticipating it to be a lot of fun."

Woodland 2 shots back LA QUINTA, CALIF. — Derek Lamely shot a 9-under 63 in the first round of the Bob Hope Classic on Wednesday, playing the final 10 holes in 8 under to take a onestroke lead over J.J. Henry and Jhonattan Vegas. Former Kansas University golfer Gary Woodland is two strokes back at 65.

NBA Nets drop Anthony deal NEWARK, N.J. — Cross another superstar off the New Jersey Nets’ wish list, and let the pursuit of Carmelo Anthony begin anew.

The megadeal to bring Anthony to New Jersey ended in stunning fashion on Wednesday night when Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov told the team to end the long, drawn-out trade talks with the Denver Nuggets. “There comes a time when the price is simply too expensive,” Prokhorov said in a news conference before the Nets faced the Utah Jazz. “I am instructing our team to walk away from the deal.”

TENNIS Nadal breezes in 2nd round MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA — Rafael Nadal extended his Grand Slam winning streak to 23 matches with a 62, 6-1, 6-1 win over American qualifier Ryan Sweeting to reach the third round of the Australian Open. He’s conceded only four games en route to the third round, sealing his win over Sweeting today with another of his rifling forehands. Kim Clijsters showed why she’s fast becoming a hot favorite for the women’s title by beating Carla Suarez Navarro, 6-1, 6-3.

STOP IT! by Anna Maine

ents are in the habit of bossing their kids around, and although you are grown and capable of making your own decisions, Mom’s behavior toward you is ingrained. She may not realize how it prevents you from enjoying her company. If you don’t tell her when she does annoying things, she won’t have the opportunity to change. But tell her nicely. With love. And humor, if you can manage it.

3 ’Couples’ trying to find a laugh

The best that can be said about the ensemble comedy “Perfect Couples” (7:30 p.m., NBC) is that it tries a tad too hard not to try too hard. A tale of three pairs with varying styles and no sense of privacy, “Couples” stars Kyle Bornheimer and Christine Woods as Dave and Julia. They’re the “Jim and Pam” of the series, the relatively normal duo with whom the audience can best relate. Julia’s brother Rex (Hayes MacArthur) has given up his frat-boy ways to follow his exacting wife Leigh’s (Olivia Munn) exacting advice. She’s an amateur relationship guru, given to demanding that people (mostly Dave and Julia) share exotic and expensive weekends working out their problems. Vance (Dave Walton) is Dave’s best friend and an incorrigibly needy “dude.” He drives the excitable Amy (Mary Elizabeth Ellis) crazy, and they frequently fight and often make up with volcanic bouts of inappropriate public intimacy. The problem with “Couples” is that Dave and Julia do too good a job of being nice and normal and uncomplicated and none of the others are funny enough to be interesting, or weird enough to make Dave and Julia seem interesting. There are some mildly amusing moments here. But like the characters, hardly memorable. ● What do you call a show about a beautiful mediator? “The Mediator”? That would be too easy. Sarah Shahi stars as Kate Reed in “Fairly Legal” (9 p.m., USA). Kate hates lawyers so much she quit being one and became a mediator, someone who facilitates agreements without all of the legal technicalities. She’s so good at her job, we see her mediate between a yuppie coffee-shop owner and an angry armed robber! And it’s a win-win resolution! She’s a frisky free spirit who lives on a houseboat somewhere in San Francisco and is on easy-breezy terms with her exhusband Justin (Michael Trucco), a district attorney. She’s on more prickly terms with her late father’s widow Lauren (Virginia Williams), the size-zero head of his old law firm. She’s on even stranger terms with her late father, seen here as an urn that Kate turns to for comfort, advice and someone to talk to. Much like “Royal Pains” (8 p.m., USA) returning with original episodes tonight, “Fairly” features pretty people in a pretty locale practicing their prestigious profession (medicine/law) while at the same time rebelling from the constraints of their field. It’s a rather well-worn formula for USA.

Tonight’s other highlights ● Auditions continue on “American Idol” (7 p.m., Fox). ● Death by electric chair on “CSI” (8 p.m., CBS). ● Michael anticipates Holly’s decision on “The Office” (8 p.m., NBC). ● Handbags and homicide on “Bones” (8 p.m., Fox). ● Leslie appeals to an auditor (Rob Lowe) on “Parks & Recreation” (8:30 p.m., NBC). ● Jane gets competitive on “The Mentalist” (9 p.m., CBS). ● Budget cuts loom on “30 Rock” (9 p.m., NBC). ● Todd wants an office talent show on “Outsourced” (9:30 p.m., NBC).

JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS For Thursday, Jan. 20: This year you evolve in a new direction. Often you let others dominate the social scene. That type of interaction simply is not that important to you, though you could feel otherwise next year. If single, it is likely because of a friendship that a love relationship develops. If you are attached, the two of you gain through focusing on a long-term goal. Leo likes people as much as you do!

Dear Annie: My husband has several friends he’s known for years. All of them are heavy drinkers. “Tom” is not a big drinker, but when he is with these friends, he gets sloppy drunk. We are in our 60s, and for medical reasons, Tom should not be drinking at all. Worse, he drives home after these binges. It often happens around sporting events. His friends will get him tickets, and although we discuss the drinking ahead of time, it doesn’t help. When I call his cell phone and get no response, I know he’s getting drunk. I pace the floor until he arrives home safely. This behavior is taking a toll on me and our relationship. Tom knows how dangerous the drinking is, but his male ego and his friends are apparently more important than his health or anything else. These guys know Tom has medical problems, but they don’t care. Tom is not an alcoholic. He rarely drinks at home and has no difficulty leaving booze in the refrigerator for months. I have nothing against him having a beer, but drinking and driving or drinking heavily with all the medications he’s on worries me to death. Last night he came home smashed after attending a basketball game, and it was the last straw. I told him I don’t want him attending any more
