penalty of $70 million in special education, officials said Monday. The disclosure came as legislators started analyzing the details of Brownback’s proposed budget cuts for the current fiscal year that are contained in House Bill 2014 before the House Appropriations Com-

mittee. The committee is expected to work on the bill today. Brownback’s budget recommendation would cut school funding in the current school year by $132 million, which would decrease base state aid per student from $4,012 to $3,937, or $75 per pupil.

It would also fall short in special education funding by $16.7 million of what the state needs to satisfy federal requirements. Such a shortfall could mean a loss of $70 million in federal funds, officials said. “By not spending $16.7 million this year, we could be in the hole $70 million over the next two

Schools can use both strengths, challenges to improve education By Mark Fagan

Leaders of the Lawrence school district embrace the strengths and welcome the challenges documented in an intensive study of district operations — regarding achievements of students, performances of teachers and even visibility of the superintendent. The study, a “needs assessment” compiled by the Kansas Learning Network, is the result of a three-day visit in November by consultants, state officials and teachers and administrative colleagues from other districts. The goal: Help Lawrence public schools identify both its positives and weaknesses, all to help the edu-

Calendar puts pressure on KU cancer center By Christine Metz

On the KU Cancer Center’s website, a clock ticks toward the deadline for when the cancer center has to submit its application to become a National Cancer Institute designated facility. As of Monday, there were 243 days left. But even after this year’s September deadline, more work is in store for the cancer center. “We are working very rapidly. We have to continue working at the same pace,” KU Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little said. “We won’t get to the point where we can stop and rest on what we have done for the next couple of months.” Gray-Little’s comments were made Monday at the Kansas Bioscience Authority’s board of directors meeting in Topeka. In the past year, the KBA

has committed $10 million over the next five years to bring in world-class scientists to the KU Cancer Center. Two more leadership positions at the KU Cancer Center need to be filled before September. Along with the two leadership positions, the KU Cancer Center is looking to fill a slate of 14 other toptier scientists. But before more scholars are recruited, the cancer center needs to increase its research space, officials told the KBA board Monday. “Not only do we need to have the space for people, but to attract the kind of scholars that will help bring NCI designation, we need to have first-rate space,” said Brad Kemp, who through the KBA is working to recruit researchers to the cancer center. So far, the KBA has contributed $26.5 million to ren-

ovate research space at the Wahl/Hixon Research Center on the medical center campus in Kansas City, Kan. A sales tax that Johnson County voters approved a few years ago is going toward establishing another facility, the Phase 1 Clinical Trials Center in Fairway. Among the buildings that KU had hoped to have to help attract new scholars is a $64 million, 108,000 square-foot research building at KU’s west campus in Lawrence. That building, which would have pulled together researchers working on drug discovery, is on hold because KU hasn’t been able to find the private and philanthropic funding sources needed to build it, Kemp said. Consultants working with KU on NCI designation also stressed the need for more research space. “Facilities remain the

issue,” said Debra Lappin, a consultant with B&D Consulting. “We can’t have Wahl /Hixon 50 percent completed and 100 percent dedicated. Recruits require a place to work.” Part of Monday’s discussion looked at where the cancer center would head after its NCI application was submitted. Gray-Little urged the cancer center to explore partnerships with the KU School of Engineering and its biomedical engineering program. She also encouraged the cancer center to move forward with work in personalized medicine, which gears treatment methods toward a patient’s individual characteristics. — Reporter Christine Metz can be reached at 832-6352.

Falling temperatures have created rising numbers for the Lawrence Community Shelter, so much so that on many nights the homeless shelter is operating out of three downtown locations. Shelter director Loring Henderson said that on many nights the shelter has housed more than 100 people in order for homeless people to remain out of the bitter cold. “We’ve been consistently around 90 people and some- Henderson times up to 110 people,” Henderson said. “Because of the extreme cold weather being so steady, it has been pretty tough for quite a few folks.” The shelter’s building at 10th and Kentucky streets can house 76 people during the winter months. But the shelter is taking advantage of a zoning change approved for the Family Promise program that allows churches to temporarily house 15 people overnight. That allows the shelter to partner with area churches to serve as overflow homeless shelters. Henderson occasionally used that system of temporary overflow shelters last winter, but he said he’s been forced to use it much more frequently this year. The shelter has operated three locations — the shelter’s main building plus two downtown churches — 20 nights during the last six weeks. Henderson said the shelter last winter only had such demand on two or three occasions. In addition to the cold weather, an increase in the number of families has added to crowding. Henderson on Monday said the shelter was serving five families with a total of about 10 children and nine adults. He said the poor economy is leading to more families at the shelter, but he also said the number of victims of domestic abuse also seems to be on the rise. “I believe that when the economy is bad, domestic abuse may increase,” Henderson said. “People’s tempers get on edge.” The shelter has agreements with four downtown churches — Plymouth Congregational Church, First United Methodist Church, Trinity Lutheran Church and The Salvation Army — to use their facilities when nighttime temperatures are 32 degrees or below. The city also allows a temporary increase in occupancy of the shelter’s main building from 53 to 76 people during the winter months. That expanded occupancy is set to end on March 31. But Henderson said he is asking for the higher occupancy to be allowed all year. He said even when the weather is not cold, the demand for

Solar heater is cool at Wakarusa Valley School By Mark Fagan

ONLINE: See the video at

Third-graders at Wakarusa Valley School know it’s frigid outside, that there’s snow on the ground, that the water flowing into their faucets can be downright cold — the frozen surface of nearby Clinton Lake is a giveaway. But here in the school’s kitchen, tucked inside a utility closet, is a piece of engineering that warms everything up: a new solar-thermal system, one that uses the sun’s abundant heat to trim utility bills by warming up water before being heated to its desired temperature. “You don’t have to use as much electricity,” explains Carlee Torneden, a thirdgrader in Bernie West’s class. Adds Meriel Salisbury, a classmate: “It’s cool to know that our school is doing this.” The two were among 33 students who learned about the system Monday during a pres-

entation led by Bill Roth, a retired engineer and member of the school’s Science Committee. The committee, which financed the $5,800 project, works to boost student interest in and awareness of math, science and related pursuits. Using cells on the roof, the solar system heats the kitchen’s incoming water from its usual temperature — typically 50 to 55 degrees — to, on Monday, about 127 degrees. From there, the water is pumped into the kitchen’s adjacent electric water heater, which cranks it up to 140 degrees for a dishwasher and sinks. While the system will save the district money on electricity, the real hope is to spark interest in such technologies — or the next one — involving renewable energy or environmental sustainability. “Half the jobs out there when our kids graduate will probably be in this field,” said Brian McCaffrey, principal.


Bioscience, university links emphasized By Christine Metz

Improving the status of the state’s two flagship universities are key in keeping the state’s bioscience industry thriving, Gov. Sam Brownback said. Kansas University needs to grow its medical school rankings and Kansas State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine should aim to be among the top five veterinary schools in the country, Brownback said. On Monday at the Kansas Bioscience stakeholder’s event in Topeka, Brownback spoke to a roomful of legislators, academic researchers and bioscience company representatives. “We have got to grow

Kansas, we have got to grow our future, we have got to grow our industries, we have got to grow our opportunities,” Brownback said. Along with gaining designation as a National Cancer Institute facility, the KU Cancer Center needs to improve its rankings to have more industries and products spin out of the school’s research, Brownback said. As for K-State, Brownback said having a top veterinary school was key in partnering with the National Bio and Agro-Defense Facility, a federal lab that is slated to be built in Manhattan. “If we are going to land and grow NBAF into the facility it can be and to get the ancillary industries associated with




that, you need NBAF and you need a top-flight veterinary medicine school sitting there side-by-side churning out scientists, churning out companies, churning out products,” Brownback said. Monday’s event recognized some of the top bioscience companies in the state. KBA President and CEO Tom Thornton pointed to some of the organization’s top successes of the year, such as the state’s top 5 ranking for biotechnology strength in Business Facilities magazine. Thornton also noted that for every $1 invested by the KBA, the state has seen a return of $9.41. — Reporter Christine Metz can be reached at 832-6352.

THE LAWRENCE COMMUNITY SHELTER, 214 W. 10TH ST., sees an increase of those needing a place to stay when temperatures outside drop in the winter. The shelter has had to use space in two churches to provide overnight accommodations to all who need them. “We want to be open in the new location by the end of the year,” Henderson said. The proposed eastern Lawrence site, though, is the subject of a lawsuit. A Douglas County District Court judge is set to hear arguments

next week in a case regarding whether private covenants prohibit the shelter from locating on the eastern Lawrence property. — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362.

He said the shelter has shown that it can safely house 76 people, and it is difficult for people to understand why they are sometimes turned away. “Operating a lottery system to determine who has a place to sleep at night is harsh,” Henderson said. City officials are expected to deal with the request in the coming months. The shelter’s special use permit at 10th and Kentucky is set to expire in April. The shelter is looking to move from its 10th and Kentucky site to a vacant warehouse near the Douglas County Jail in eastern Lawrence. But that move won’t be completed by April.

Airport bombing called terrorist attack Terrorists struck again in the heart of Russia, with a suicide bomber blowing himself up Monday in Moscow’s busiest airport and turning its international arrivals terminal into a smoky, blood-spattered hall of dismembered bodies, screaming survivors and abandoned suitcases. At least 35 people were killed, including two British travelers. No one claimed responsibility for the blast at Domodedovo Airport that also wounded 180 people, although Islamic militants in the southern Russian region of Chechnya have been blamed for previous attacks in Moscow, including a double suicide bombing on the capital’s subway system in March 2010 that resulted in 40 deaths. The Interfax news agency said the head of the suspected bomber had been found. President Dmitry Medvedev called it a terrorist attack and immediately tightened security at Moscow’s two other commercial airports and other key transportation facilities. 2 | PHOENIX

Complaint against Perkins to be discussed By Scott Rothschild

T O P E K A — The state ethics commission today will consider a complaint against former Kansas University Athletic Director Lew Perkins that alleges he violated a ban on gifts to state officials by accepting free exercise equipment and physical therapy sessions. Perkins faces a maximum fine of $5,000 if the Kansas Governmental Ethics Commission finds he violated the ban. A public hearing on the complaint is scheduled to start at 1:45

p.m. After the hearing, the commission will go into a closeddoor session and then will emerge and announce its decision in open session. Perkins, who retired in September, has not commented on the ethics complaint, which was filed in October. But in earlier comments, Perkins had stated through a spokesman that he did nothing wrong in accepting the equipment, and that he reported the issue to the ethics commission to make sure everything was above-board. The complaint against

Court throws Emanuel off mayor ballot Just days ago, Rahm Emanuel seemed to be steamrolling the entire field of candidates for Chicago mayor. He had millions in the bank, a huge lead in the polls and abundant opportunities to show off his influence, including a meeting with the visiting Chinese president. But on Monday, the former White House chief of staff was waging a desperate bid to keep his campaign alive after an Illinois appeals court kicked him off the ballot for not meeting a residency requirement. The surprise decision threw the race into disarray with less than a month to go. Emanuel’s lawyers quickly sought help from the Illinois Supreme Court, asking the justices to stop the appellate ruling and to hear an appeal as soon as possible. But time was running short, since the Chicago Board of Elections planned to begin printing ballots without Emanuel’s name within days. 4 | BEIRUT

Hezbollah moves toward control Iranian ally Hezbollah moved to the brink of controlling Lebanon’s next government on Monday, setting off angry protests and drawing warnings from the U.S. that its support could be in jeopardy. Nearly two weeks after bringing down Lebanon’s Western-backed government, the Shiite militant group — considered a terrorist organization by Washington — secured support in parliament to name its own candidate for the next prime minister. The feat caps Hezbollah’s steady rise over decades from resistance force against Israel to Lebanon’s most powerful military and political power. Protests erupted quickly in areas populated by Hezbollah’s Sunni rivals, who declared a “day of rage” to express their rejection of what they called “Persian tutelage” over Lebanon — a reference to Hezbollah’s Iranian patrons. 5 | FLORIDA

Grim month for police: 2 more slain When two wounded law officers were rushed from the scene of a deadly shooting Monday morning on Florida’s Gulf Coast, someone handed St. Petersburg Police Chief Chuck Harmon a ring, two bracelets and a badge. They belonged to Sgt. Thomas Baitinger and Officer Jeffrey Yaslowitz, who died from the wounds they sustained helping to serve a warrant on a man with a long criminal history. These were the latest police killings in a month that already proved fatal for 14 law officers across the nation. In just a 24-hour period between Sunday and Monday, 11 officers were shot in five states, according to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund.

The suspect in the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords smiled and nodded but didn’t speak as he appeared in court Monday and his lawyer provided the 22-year-old’s first response to the charges: a plea of not guilty. In the two weeks since the deadly attack that killed six outside a Tucson grocery store, Jared Loughner’s hair — shaved in the mug shot that’s become an enduring image of the tragedy — has Loughner grown out slightly. Loughner faces federal charges of trying to assassinate Giffords and kill two of her aides. More charges are expected. Investigators have said Loughner was mentally disturbed and acting increasingly erratic in the weeks leading up to the attack on Jan. 8 that wounded 13. If Loughner’s attorney uses mental competency questions as a defense and is successful, Loughner could be sent to a mental health facility instead of being sentenced to prison or death. 3 | CHICAGO

A Lawrence man who owns MagnaGro International is out of federal custody and under house arrest. U.S. District Judge Julie Robinson has scheduled a hearing for Monday to determine COURTS whether Raymond Sawyer, 59, has violated terms of the probation he was granted in a 2009 case. According to federal court documents that were recently unsealed, prosecutors argue Sawyer has not complied with his probation terms because he faces charges in Lawrence Municipal Court, including for an October incident when Sawyer is accused of assaulting the city’s code enforcement manager. Sawyer, who was arrested on a warrant on Jan. 14, is on probation for pleading guilty in 2009 to discharging waste from his fertilizer operation at 600 E. 22nd St. into the city’s sewer system. During his five-year probation term, he can’t commit another crime at any level. But according to federal court records, Sawyer has at least two cases pending in municipal court — one where he’s accused of occupying his business after city inspectors condemned it. Sawyer is also accused in October of running with clenched fists toward Brian Jimenez, the city’s code enforcement manager, after Jimenez said he caught Sawyer on the condemned property. In April 2010, two men died after 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. Federal prosecutors also accuse Sawyer of leaving the state without permission and not notifying his probation officer within three days after he was questioned by a police officer. — Reporter George Diepenbrock can be reached at 832-7144.

Lawrence police get 6 new recruits By George Diepenbrock

ONLINE: See a video of the ceremony at

Six law enforcement officers from across the state were sworn in as Lawrence police recruits Monday morning. And police leaders said their experience will allow the department to get more officers on the streets faster than a normal process of training new recruits. “They represent the best of the best of those out there who are looking to find a job within the experienced hiring process,” said Tarik Khatib, Lawrence’s interim police chief. “So we are very excited to be able to have these six officers.” During a Monday morning

ceremony at the department’s Investigations and Training Center, 4820 Bob Billings Parkway, Khatib announced the six new recruits as: ● Tyler Caudle, a sheriff’s officer in Jackson County north of Topeka. ● Alissa Counley and Marie Haynes, both officers from the Kansas University Public Safety Office. ● David Garcia, of the Seward County Sheriff ’s Off ice in southwestern Kansas. ● Nicholas Krug, a sheriff’s officer in Hamilton County, also in southwestern Kansas. ● Coleman Marshall, of the Bonner Springs Police Department. When advertisements seeking officers with at least

two years of experience were published in November, it was the first time department leaders had used this tactic since 2001. Khatib said it would allow the department to more quickly replace officers lost through attrition. Usually, the department hires officers new to the profession. Capt. Paul Fellers, who leads the community services division, said six new officers will go through an abbreviated one-month training academy learning about tactics specific to Lawrence and the department instead of starting with the basics. The new officers will then perform a three-month field training period working with current officers on the streets. Typically, new Lawrence

recruits undergo a 23-week academy before they start field training.

Driver involved in shooting case pleads no contest to conspiracy charges The driver in connection with an October shooting outside a Lawrence apartment has entered pleas to conspiracy charges. Desmond J. Jackson, 19, of Topeka, pleaded no contest Monday afternoon to two counts of conspiracy to commit aggravated robbery. “His actions in driving the vehicle constitute a conspiracy towards that attempted robbery,” according to a factual basis prosecutors presented in the case. Douglas County prosecutors accused Jackson of participating in a scheme with

Christopher Bush and two Topeka women to rob two Lawrence men. One of the Lawrence men was shot on Oct. 11 in the 2500 block of Redbud Lane. Chief District Judge Robert Fairchild is scheduled to sentence Jackson on March 3. Defense attorney Jason Billam said he expected his client to qualify for probation in the case. After Jackson pleaded, Fairchild did agree to lower his bond to a $5,000 own-recognizance bond. Bush, 20, the man prosecutors accused of pulling the

trigger, has already pleaded no contest to charges of aggravated battery, conspiracy to commit aggravated robbery and attempted aggravated robbery. Bush is scheduled to be sentenced on Feb. 15. One of the women, Ashley Halstead, 22, pleaded guilty in December to two counts of conspiracy to commit aggravated robbery. She is scheduled to be sentenced Friday. The fourth defendant, Rylie Musik, 18, has a trial scheduled for April 6. Her attorney has said she had no knowledge of the plan.

Shortly after that hit the news, Perkins was accused by former staff member William Dent of accepting use of the exercise equipment in his home in exchange for giving the company’s owners access to premium men’s basketball tickets. Perkins and the company’s co-owner denied the allegation. Prior to the accusation, Perkins had filed a report with Lawrence police saying

he was being blackmailed by Dent over the equipment. Perkins later wrote a check for $5,000 for use of the equipment. In June, an internal review by KU found “no evidence” to substantiate Dent’s claims.

The commission also will consider allowing Corliss to cash out some of his vacation hours that have gone unused. Specific details of the contract changes will be presented on a future City Commission agenda. Corliss said he appreciated the entire commission’s support. He said 2010 had been a challenging year on the economic front, but praised city employees for their efforts in dealing with reduced revenues. “I feel like we have worked well as a team during some of the most difficult financial conditions we’ve experienced,” Corliss said.

Brownback defends plan to close KNI By Scott Rothschild

TOPEKA — Gov. Sam Brownback on Monday defended his proposal to shut down the Kansas Neurological Institute, a residential facility that cares for approximately 150 people with profound disabilities. Under his plan, residents would be moved into community-based housing over a two-year period starting in July. “No one in KNI is going to

be put out on the streets,” said Brownback, who toured the Topeka facility last week. And he has the support of several groups that advocate on behalf of those with disabilities. Rocky Nichols, executive director of the Disability Rights Center of Kansas, said savings from the more expensive care at KNI would go a long way toward eliminating waiting lists of Kansans with disabilities who need inhome services. Brownback said he could not commit to

placing all the money saved from closing KNI into services for those with disabilities. But Brownback, a Republican, is getting strong push back from members of both parties. Senate Democratic Leader Anthony Hensley of Topeka said KNI is serving people who cannot be served elsewhere. “We are talking about the most vulnerable citizens” who require round-the-clock assistance from trained staff. Nearly 500 people work at

KNI. “It’s about the quality of life for people who live there,” Hensley said. Rep. Joe Patton, R-Topeka, also opposes Brownback’s plan. “With the investment it would take to replace the services and facilities provided by KNI, I’m not convinced it would save the state money, either immediately or in the long run,” Patton said.

State to City, school filing deadline today continue Prospective candidates have until noon to get their names in funding high school journalism ————

By Chad Lawhorn

By Andy Hyland

Journalism educators lauded a recent decision from the Kansas State Department of Education to allow high school journalism classes to continue to receive state funding. The state is undergoing a shift in how it allocates its funding, said Kathy Toelkes, a spokeswoman for KSDE. As part of a national shift in how federal funds are allocated for vocational and technical education, Kansas — along with other states — is placing courses into a new system of career clusters and pathways. A state advisory committee recently approved three journalism courses as part of the new career clusters, making them eligible to receive state funding. “Journalism is still a relevant field,” said Ann Brill, dean of Kansas University’s School of Journalism and Mass Communications. “There are still jobs.” Brill and other journalism stakeholders throughout the state had been talking to state leaders for months, after it initially seemed that journalism courses may not receive funded in the new model. The state and educators eventually agreed — it’s the skills taught that matter, and how those apply to 21st-century careers. “This is all really good news,” said Brill, who said that journalism is moving beyond just putting out a printed product, and into new technologies. Laurie Folsom, a high school journalism teacher at Free State High School, also met with state leaders. She highlighted how students in journalism courses learn critical thinking, writing and communications skills, and how to work with technology. In her school, students, in addition to putting out a newspaper, also update the newspaper’s website, learn audio and video skills and explore how to use social media. A Free State High School newspaper student was assigned to use Twitter to provide timely updates from the school board meeting on Monday night, Folsom said. “I’m very happy,” Folsom said, especially considering a few months ago she was unsure if journalism courses would continue to be funded. To have the three courses included in a career pathway shows “the power of people speaking up,” she said.

Last call for candidates. By this afternoon, the list of candidates seeking seats on the Lawrence City Commission or the Lawrence school board will be set. The f iling deadline for both offices is noon today, and thus far candidate interest for the City Commission has been sparse, while interest in the school board picked up momentum as the deadline neared. Through Monday, four candidates had filed for three seats on the Lawrence City Commission, and it is appearing more likely that two of the three incumbents with expiring terms won’t seek re-election. City Commissioner Lance Johnson briefly confirmed Tuesday that he will not seek a second term. Commission-


have said they likely wouldn’t run. Including Merrill, eight candidates have filed for school board. The seven others: Ola Faucher, Rick Ingram, Shannon Kimball, Randy Masten, Keith Diaz Moore, Tyler Palmer and Bill Roth. Prospective candidates for the City Commission can file this morning in the City Clerk’s office at City Hall, Sixth and Massachusetts streets. Candidates for the school board can file at the county clerk’s office at the Douglas County Courthouse, 1100 Mass. The general election will be April 5. — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362. Follow him at — Schools reporter Mark Fagan contributed information for this story.

Retired engineer seeks school seat By Mark Fagan

A retired engineer is looking to take his problem-solving skills to the Lawrence school board. Bill Roth, a resident of rural Lawrence, filed Monday as a candidate for school board, on which four seats are up for election April 5. Roth, 77, is a member of the Science Committee at Wakarusa Valley School, which has been working to increase awareness and excitement about math and science among students. He’d like to see such programs serve not only Wakarusa Valley, but the district as a whole. “We must all remember that the primary function for

our schools is to educate every kid,” Roth said. “Our children are (and) will be competing in a global economy. Roth When one of our school system’s graduates apply for a job or to a college, an interviewer’s ears should perk up when they hear, ‘I went to school in Lawrence.’ ” Roth spent 24 years in the Air Force, including stints as an instructor for jet pilots, project manager and staff officer responsible for planning and budgeting. He later spent 10 years as a systems engineer for Lockheed Mar-

State options few Gov. Sam Brownback and many governors across the country are faced with cutting spending, raising taxes, or both.


ansas Gov. Sam Brownback, as well as governors throughout the nation, are being criticized for calling for major, if not drastic, cuts in many of their state’s large tax-supported programs. Brownback is being attacked for proposing cuts in state funding for education, eliminating some state departments and the merging of others. He is facing up to the realities of Kansas’ fiscal condition. The public considers some programs as untouchable, sacred cows and believes the governor is insensitive and uncaring in proposing any cuts in these areas. The fact is, whether in Kansas, Illinois, California, or even Washington, D.C., and in the federal budget, the chickens are coming home to roost. After years of spending beyond their budgets, states and the federal government are almost broke. It is so serious there is talk about allowing states to declare bankruptcy. When President Obama was handing out billions of dollars in stimulus money to hire more police, teachers and The public thinks to fund numerous other programs, it is entitled to politicians supportmore and more ing the Democrats services but and Obama loved it. usually thinks Few of those authorizing the payouts, and someone else few of the recipients, should be talked about how they expected to pay planned to pay for the for the everadded services when increasing costs of the federal funding ended. Obama alone those services. is not responsible for the current crisis, but he and Democratic congressmen approved massive spending legislation. Some of the federal handouts may have resulted in and perhaps were created with the idea of winning votes. But now the federal government and the states are trying to figure out how to balance their budgets. How do states come up with the money to replace vanishing federal dollars and pay for the teachers, police and other programs previously funded by Uncle Sam? There are only two ways out: Cut spending and/or raise taxes. States can’t print money as the federal government does so easily. States can’t vote on increasing their debt limit as Congress does to pay for the constantly growing federal appetite. Tonight, during the State of the Union, Americans will hear how Obama intends to deal with the historic, ugly and deadly federal debt. Brownback and other governors already have tried to present their critical fiscal situations in a clear, easy-to-understand manner. They have proposed cuts or huge tax increases, or both. The public thinks it is entitled to more and more services but usually thinks someone else should be expected to pay for the everincreasing costs of those services. As noted above, the chickens are coming home to roost and now the president, governors, members of Congress and those in state legislatures have to face the option of either making major cuts in expenditures or raising taxes. Otherwise, the recent stories telling of economic disasters in Greece, Spain and Ireland soon could be repeated in news stories with datelines of Washington, D.C., Lincoln, Jefferson City, Springfield and Topeka.

Tunisian difference: a moderate middle For someone who has covered the Arab world for 40 years, the middle-class Tunisian revolt was exhilarating. Especially gripping was the fact that the youthful women demonstrators were unveiled, and the young men did not wear beards. They talked about practical things such as reforming the economy and ending corruption. For a moment, one could dream. It almost seemed possible that Tunisia might produce the element whose absence has doomed so many Arab efforts to achieve democracy: a pragmatic political movement with concrete goals that is neither Islamist nor based on tribe or sect. Mideast efforts at political reform have been repeatedly dashed because that Arab center was missing. The old pan-Arab nationalist and socialist parties have been discredited, and today’s strongest Arab political movements are Islamist. Pragmatic center-left or center-right parties are either too weak to matter or nipped in the bud by autocrats who fear they present a political threat. Take Egypt: The sclerotic regime of Hosni Mubarak insists the only alternative to its misrule is an Islamist takeover. But the Mubarak government has created a self-fulfilling prophecy, leaving no political space for moderate movements to develop. Elections are rigged, and fake charges are cooked up to throw moderate political opponents in jail. Similarly, in Syria, shoots of

been repeatedly dashed because that Arab center was missing. The old panArab nationalist and socialist parties have been discredited, and today’s strongest Arab political movements are Islamist.”

moderate opposition are crushed before they can develop, leaving the f ield to underground Islamists who are waiting patiently for their moment. Elsewhere in the region, Arab moderates are thwarted by sectarian political parties. In Lebanon, a country with a large middle class that should be a poster child for democracy, hopes soared in 2005. Hundreds of thousands of young people poured into the streets to protest a car bombing that killed former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri, which most Lebanese

attributed to Syria. The socalled March 15 movement, led by Hariri’s businessman son, Saad, seemed poised to create a new Lebanon, freed from Syrian interference. But Lebanon’s moderate middle ran up against its sectarian politics. Hezbollah, a Shiite religious party that was backed by Iran and Syria and was willing to use violence, was able to outflank the March 15 movement. Last week, Hezbollah brought down Saad Hariri’s government in protest against his support for a U.N. probe that reportedly has found Hezbollah to be complicit in Raf ik Hariri’s murder. Lebanon’s sectarian politics make it impossible to operate a normal democratic system in which parties compete on platforms and issues. Sectarianism also dominates political life in Baghdad. Everyone remembers the Iraqi election of 2005, when old ladies in black veils held up fingers stained with purple ink. Americans didn’t realize that these women weren’t celebrating democracy, but rather the triumph of their Shiite religious sect. Iraq’s major political parties are all sectarian — Sunni, Shiite, and Kurdish — in a system (which the United States helped devise) that makes forming a government hard and compromise often impossible. Iraqi cabinet ministers are appointed by sect rather than competence. So it’s no wonder that the Tunisian revolt has galvanized the angry youth of the region.

The Arab political landscape has been so frozen that many young Arabs have despaired about their futures. Their plight was perfectly exemplified by the young college graduate who triggered the Tunisian upheaval. He immolated himself after being abused by police as he sold vegetables, the only job he could find. Several other young men in the region have echoed his desperate act. However, in Tunisia, which is not riven by ethnic or religious splits, the young rebels are students, businessmen, professionals, or members of a strong tradeunion movement. They represent Arab middle and working classes that want justice — economic reforms, an end to the hideous corruption of the ruling family — and a chance to pick new leaders. Yet even in Tunisia, it’s not yet clear who speaks for the moderate middle that ousted President Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali. Most opposition groups were crushed by the former regime. Exiled Islamists are returning and may be the quickest to regroup. The question swirling around the Tunisian rebellion is whether it can finally provide an example of an Arab country where moderate, democratic forces — not dictatorial, not radical Islamist — take power. The answer to that question matters desperately to the entire Arab world — and to us. — Trudy Rubin is a columnist and editorial board member for the Philadelphia Inquirer.

U.N. should play a bigger role in Haiti Haiti’s humanitarian disaster and its escalating political mess have made it clearer than ever that the country’s political class needs some kind of adult supervision — either an ultimatum by donor countries to create a government of national reconstruction or a temporary United Nations trusteeship. Granted, the idea of a U.N. trusteeship for Haiti — whether it’s called protectorate, mandate, transitional administration or anything else — is not new. It has been floating for decades in academic, political and diplomatic circles: You can f ind 623,000 entries under “Haiti and trusteeship” in Google. It was proposed most recently after the Jan. 12, 2010, earthquake by former Democratic Sen. Chris Dodd and former U.S. national security adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski. But now, following the Organization of American States report confirming that the Nov. 28 elections were flawed and that the government-backed candidate should not be on the ballot for the runoff election, there are growing questions over the future of the current partnership between Haiti’s government and international donors and over whether there shouldn’t be some kind of more assertive international role in Haiti. Even before the current political crisis, there were mutual recriminations between Haitian officials and donor countries. Now the situation has worsened with the dispute over the Novem-

While Haitians have long been highly nationalistic, the situation is so desperate that most would welcome a larger international role.” ber election results and the arrival of former despot Jean-Claude “Baby Doc” Duvalier amid a desperate humanitarian situation. More than 800,000 people left homeless by the earthquake are still living in tents, there are outbreaks of cholera and most of the population is unemployed. There are fears of widespread violence. Supporters of a U.N. trusteeship for Haiti, such as Dodd, say the Haitian government, for all practical purposes, does not exist. Haiti lost thousands of government officials during the earthquake, which destroyed 28 of the country’s 29 government ministries’ buildings. While Haiti would not legally qualify under the United Nations

Charter for a U.N. trusteeship because it is an independent sovereign nation, the Haitian government could allow the current 9,000-strong U.N. peacekeeping force in the country to expand its role. Recent U.N. trusteeships in Bosnia, Kosovo and East Timor have been effective, supporters of the idea say. While Haitians have long been highly nationalistic, the situation is so desperate that most would welcome a larger international role, they add. Has the time come for a U.N. trusteeship in Haiti, I asked several well-placed Haiti watchers this week. James Dobbins, head of the Rand Corp. think tank’s international security division and a former senior Clinton administration National Security Council official, told me that “I wouldn’t exclude it if there is significant violence.” The ideal outcome of the current impasse would be for President Rene Preval to accept the OAS recommendations, allow a second round election with the two candidates that the OAS determined as winners in the first round and have the international community take a stronger role in monitoring the runoff. “But if for some reason Preval were not to follow the advice of the international community and that led to an outbreak of largescale violence, more extreme measures would have to be considered,” Dobbins said. Robert Maguire, a Trinity Uni-

versity professor who heads the Haiti working group at the U.S. Institute for Peace, told me that a U.N. trusteeship would be counter-productive, because it would further weaken Haiti’s institutions. “It’s in the international interest to have a stronger Haiti that can manage its own affairs,” he said, adding that Haiti’s public institutions have been bypassed by international donors. “International donors should partner with Haitian public institutions, even if they are weak.” My opinion: Donor countries — together with the U.N., the OAS and other big players — should help organize and monitor Haiti’s runoff and condition disbursal of the billions of dollars in reconstruction aid to a deal whereby the winner of the election would include the loser and other opposition parties in a national reconciliation government. That was done in several countries, including Japan after World War II, and would certainly help get Haiti back on its feet. If that fails, and the political crisis leads to violence, the existing U.N. peacekeeping mission should be expanded with a mandate to coordinate all reconstruction efforts. In other words, there should be a temporary U.N. trusteeship, which for political etiquette reasons, should be called anything else but that. — Andres Oppenheimer is a Latin America correspondent for the Miami Herald.

Kobach focus of immigration report TOPEKA (AP) — A new Southern Poverty Law Center report criticizing attempts by states and cities to crack down on illegal immigration focuses on the new Kansas secretary of state, Kris Kobach. Kobach returned the criticism, telling The Associate Press on Monday night the report is a “hit piece.” The report released Monday is titled in part, Kobach “When Mr. Kobach Comes to Town.” Kobach is a Republican Kansas City-area law professor who has advised cities and states on how to attack illegal immigration. He helped to draft a controversial immigration law that Arizona enacted last year. The report by the Alabamabased Southern Poverty Law Center argues that such policies spark expensive court fights and are damaging to communities. Kobach said that the report greatly exaggerates the legal costs for communities and is filled with misinformation.

KU emotionally spent, but focused By Gary Bedore

KANSAS AT COLORADO When: 7 tonight Where: Coors Events Center, Boulder, Colo. TV: KMCI (cable channels 15, 215)

BOULDER, COLO. — Kansas University’s basketball players didn’t practice Sunday, a day after incurring their first loss of the 2010-11 season. “We met,” KU coach Bill Self said Monday afternoon. “And I talked to them. “Pretty interesting.” The group huddle was not about KU’s play in a 74-63 setback to Texas. It was not about the challenges the Jayhawks (18-1, 3-1) face in today’s 7 p.m. contest at Colorado (14-6, 3-2). The talk centered on sopho-

INSIDE KU has added Christian Garrett, a 6-foot-3 combo guard from IMG Academies in Bradenton, Fla., as a walk-on. Page 3B more forward Thomas Robinson, who after initially telling Self on Sunday he wanted to make the trip to CU, changed his mind Monday and decided to return to Washington, D.C., to be with his sister, Jayla, as they await the late-in-the-week funeral of their mother, Lisa, who died Friday night. “The first thing they (play-

ers) wanted to do was: ‘Coach, tell us about Thomas’ situation. Tell us about the arrangements. Tell us about his sister. What can we legally d o? W h a t ’s t h e N CA A going to allow you to do? Is anybody go i n g to go with him (to D.C . ) ? He doesn’t need to be alone.’ Robinson Th e wh o l e deal was laying out Thomas,” Self said. Self informed the Jayhawks that director of basketball oper-

ations Barry Hinson would return to D.C. with Robinson on Monday — the day of Robinson’s grandfather’s funeral — and that the entire team would fly charter to the funeral. And that the NCAA would allow KU to pay for funeral expenses and even work on the arrangements in Lawrence. Then, some other things were said. “I said to the guys, ‘That (Robinson’s situation) is most important, but life doesn’t stop, and we played a game yesterday. Do you guys want to look at it and see what we can learn from the game from a basketball standpoint?’’’ Self related. “Get


New-look Buffs Colorado improved under Boyle By Eric Sorrentino

When Colorado senior guard Cory Higgins first heard the news last April, he wasn’t particularly fond of the development. Coach Jeff Bzdelik, who shared a vision with Higgins of elevating Colorado basketball to a consistent contender in the Big 12, was leaving after three years to become the head coach at Wake Forest. Life as Higgins knew it on the basketball court was about to change abruptly. “I wasn’t excited about the situation to begin with,” Higgins admitted. “I don’t think any senior would have been.” Instead of promoting an assistant who was familiar with CU’s players, the Buffaloes looked outside the program to Tad Boyle, who coached Northern Colorado the previous four years, to take over for Bzdelik. Bzdelik’s departure hit Higgins hard at first. They both arrived in Boulder in 2007, Higgins as a freshman, Bzdelik as the first-year CU coach. Last season, the Buffaloes made noticeable progress under Bzdelik, finishing 6-10 in the Big 12 and eighth in the conference standings. If that doesn’t sound like progress, consider that Colorado finished last in the Big 12 in Higgins’ freshman and sophomore seasons and won a total of four conference games from 2007-2009. This year, with Higgins back for his senior season, along with sophomore star-in-the-making Alec Burks, CU was thought to have the pieces to make some noise in the league. Still, Bzdelik bolted. Higgins, a 6-foot-5, 180-pound native of Danville, Calif., felt a natural sense of disappointment. It didn’t take long, however, for that disappointment to turn into excitement. All it took was Higgins’ f irst meeting with Boyle. Boyle, a former Kansas University guard from 1981-1985, held a team meeting with his new group shortly after accepting the CU job on April 19, 2010. After the meeting, he pulled Higgins aside. No one else was around. Just the first-year CU coach and the fourth-year CU senior. “My message to him was this: Listen, Cory, this is your senior year,” Boyle said by phone on Monday. “I’ve been coaching colTony Harman/University of Colorado athletic department lege basketball for 16 years.

your mind off some other things. And Markieff (Morris) stepped up and said, ‘Coach, we’ve got to be able to do both.’ So I thought that was a pretty mature deal. So we watched the second half (of Texas loss) yesterday as a group and went over everything. “The guys left out of there, I think, in a pretty fair frame of mind, but we’re an emotionally spent team right now. And if you know Thomas’ situation and how much his mother meant to him, in large part because that’s all he had. The only set of grandparents he knew died within the last three weeks.

Rivalry energizes Lions, Firebirds By Clark Goble Journal-World Sports Writer

The Lawrence High boys basketball team energetically warmed up for practice Monday. Fade-away half-court shots were attempted. Alley-oop dunks were converted. Assistant coach David Schneider, just a couple minutes after arriving, walked off the floor shaking his FREE STATE head. “There’s too AT LHS much energy in this gym,” When: 7 tonight Schneider said. Where: Lawrence Yes, the High Lawrence High and Free State TV: Replay at 10:30 coaching staffs p.m. on ch. 6 are happy their Records: Free State teams are ener- 6-5; LHS 4-8 gized for tonight’s city showdown at LHS. But they’re also aware that too much energy could make for a tired team, one prone to making mistakes. LHS coach Mike Lewis didn’t win a city-showdown game last season, making his career record 0-2. He did learn from the experiences, though, especially about how to prepare his team. The routines stay the same. The crowd will be bigger and louder than usual, but Lewis understands that his team needs to play loose. “If they’re tight and worrying about who we’re playing or about the atmosphere, that usually leads to pretty tight play,” Lewis said. He also learned about coaching in a hyped environment, which the LHS gym figures to be tonight. “You learn how to try to keep your emotions and thoughts together when the gym is rattling your brain and you’re trying to keep on task,” Lewis said. “You can be distracted and definitely caught up in the moment.” Free State coach Chuck Law declined to comment on his team Monday night, citing an internal matter at Free State. Lawrence junior KJ Pritchard is nervous for the game but also has been looking forward to the two city-showdown games all year. He hasn’t talked to his friends at Free State in some time. “Not close to the game,” Pritchard said. Lawrence (4-8), led by Pritchard and juniors Anthony Buffalomeat and Logan Henrichs, finished seventh at the Topeka Invitational Tournament last weekend. Free State (6-5), led by senior Eric Watson and junior Georgi Funtarov, took sixth at the McPherson Invitational. Both teams are looking for a boost they can ride into the end of their seasons. Lewis compared last year’s environment to a substate or state tournament game. “It’s a good test to see where we’re at,” Lewis said.

NATIONAL BRIEFS Teammates defend Cutler LAKE FOREST, ILL. — Jay Cutler finally got some protection. The Chicago Bears rushed to their quarterback’s defense on Monday, blasting current and former players who in Twitter posts questioned his toughness for sitting out most of the second half of Sunday’s 21-14 NFC championship game loss to Green Bay due to a knee injury. “I think it’s crap,” general manager Jerry Angelo said. “I thought they were a union. If that’s the way they unionize themselves, they got bigger issues than the one that they have with the owners. I’m very disappointed. That, to me, is dirty pool.” Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew and Arizona Cardinals defensive lineman Darnell Dockett, along with former players like Deion Sanders and ESPN analyst Mark Schlereth, were among those criticizing Cutler on Sunday. To that, coach Lovie Smith said, “Our quarterback’s a tough guy. ... It’s pretty simple what happened yesterday. Before the half, Jay hurt his knee. He showed a lot of toughness to continue to play with it.” Smith said Cutler sprained the medial collateral ligament in his left knee late in the first half and would have been questionable for the Feb. 6 Super Bowl had the Bears beaten Green Bay.

Jones-Drew, who played the first 14 games with a partially torn meniscus in his right knee before shutting it down, posted two comments about Cutler. He first compared the quarterback to former Florida coach Urban Meyer, who resigned in December, then wrote: “All I’m saying is that he can finish the game on a hurt knee ... I played the whole season on one.” “I threw out this joke and the backlash came in,” Jones-Drew told the Associated Press in a telephone interview Monday. “I tried to make it right, but it backfired.”

KU hoops adds walk-on By Gary Bedore

Richard Gwin/Journal-World Photo

KU’S THOMAS ROBINSON (0) AND MARIO LITTLE WATCH the end of the Jayhawks’ loss to Texas on Saturday at Allen Fieldhouse. Robinson will not be with the team in Colorado.

Robinson not traveling to CU CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1B

“He gets a call from his sister, who is 9, that his mother — mommy — just died ... from a 9-year-old because there’s nobody else to call. Those are pretty heavy things, and our players totally felt that and respected that and totally respect Thomas. I think our team is spent right now, but I’m not saying it’s something that has to last a long time. I’m just saying we need to kind of get back to a routine of normalcy, and that’s OK.” The Jayhawks, senior leader Tyrel Reed said, will be able to focus on today’s foe — the Buffs, who are led by two of the best players in the Big 12, Alec Burks (19.6 ppg) and Cory Higgins (16.1 ppg). “I mean, the world doesn’t stop turning,” Reed said. “Whether there’s things going on in our personal lives or whatever. We’re all men. We have to deal with those things. We have a job to do, and that’s playing Colorado.” The world has seemed a kinder, gentler place to KU coach Self lately. He related the story of how so many individuals have stepped up and asked what they can do for Robinson and his sister. The coach has cautioned folks to do nothing to ensure they don’t run afoul of NCAA rules. “It’s amazing to me how many people that I don’t know, that Thomas doesn’t know, that I do know ... that have offered their assistance in unbelievably unself ish ways. Unbelievable,” Self said. “I’ve had friends that I’ve known for years that live in Texas (that) want to go to D.C. right now. They want to move up here and just take care of Thomas’ sister. They want to do things, they’re talking about guardianship and all that stuff. It’s amazing to me how connected people get to our guys, because they see them as one of theirs, and that’s one of the great things about playing here. “I think Thomas sees that now more than ever, so there’s been some positive things to come of this, without question. But certainly, no definite answers will be given on anything until he has a chance to figure out what’s best for him and what’s best for Jayla.” There are many many things to be settled before it’s assured that Robinson will be back for Saturday’s 6 p.m. game against Kansas State. If services are Friday, the KU team would fly to D.C. and back, while Robinson likely would not be able to return immediately after the funeral, but return on his own, maybe later that night. “We’ve had some serious discussions about how to move forward from a business standpoint and personal standpoint and with the welfare of his life and all the things he’s got to do, getting lined up with an attorney to educate him about all the things he’s got to do and family possessions, and there’s so many different things that he’s got to do that we’re just going to send a coach out there to assist him with tonight,” Self said of Hinson. “Hopefully, he’ll be able to get a lot of

Kansas University’s men’s basketball team has added a second-semester walk-on player in Christian Garrett, a 6foot-3 combo guard from IMG Academies in Bradenton, Fla. Garrett, who hails from Los Angeles, averaged 14.0 points, 7.0 assists and 6.3 rebounds for IMG last fall. Prior to that, he attended Campbell High in North Hollywood, Calif., and Stone Ridge Prep High in Tarzana, Calif. He will practice with the Jayhawks and attend class the rest of this school year, then be a freshman eligibility-wise during the 2011-12 campaign. “We're excited and looking forward to having Christian as a member of our basketball team,” KU coach Bill Self said Monday. “He and his family notified us that this is where Christian wanted to begin and get his education from the University of Kansas, and we think he will be a great asset. He’s a quality young man that will be a great representative of us. He’s also a very good

athlete that has a chance to be a very good basketball player.” Garrett played for Dinos Trigonis’ Belmont Shore AAU team the past three summers. He was a teammate of DeAndre Daniels, a 6-8 forward who is expected to choose KU over Texas and Kentucky soon. The two are good friends. “He’s a latebloomer growingwise. He’s Garrett listed as 6-3. He may be a little taller than that, closer to 6-4,” Trigonis said. “He’s improved a lot. Although he was inconsistent at times in the summer, he had some good moments, especially offensively. He has a chance down the road. From a walkon standpoint, he has a lot of long-term potential and academically will enhance the team significantly. He is an excellent student.” Trigonis said several Ivy League schools recruited

Garrett, as well as North Carolina State, Alabama, Auburn and Sam Houston State. “He’s very athletic for his size,” Trigonis said. “He had a nice dunk in July in Phoenix, one of the best of the tournament.” Garrett qualified for the Top 50 at the Pangos AllAmerican Camp and participated in the Top 40 game for the Pangos All-American LIVE event. Additionally, he was a Top 25 pick on the Fullcourt Press All-West Camp. Garrett’s great uncle, Bill Garrett, played basketball at Indiana University from 194951. He has two cousins who played professional sports as well — Mike Garrett, who played football at USC and in the NFL for the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Diego Chargers, and former New York Yankee Chris Chambliss. His mom, Cynthia, is an actress in Los Angeles. “He has the length and ability to be a good player. For a level like Kansas, it could be difficult, but he definitely has a chance down the road,” Trigonis noted.

Jayhawks add speed By Matt Tait

The Kansas University football team’s continued quest to add speed this offseason may have just landed its biggest burner. Monday, Tunde Bakare, a 5foot-11, 215-pound linebacker from Highland Community College, told that he planned to join the Jayhawks. Bakare, who has been clocked as fast as 4.35 seconds

in the 40-yard dash, chose Kansas over offers from East Carolina, Iowa State and Minnesota. USC and Boise State also showed heavy interest. Bakare, who originally hails from Forest Park High in Woodbridge, Va., said he chose KU after visiting last weekend because of the family atmosphere. “The players want to win at Kansas,” he told Rivals. “The players at Kansas are hungry. I’m ready to go in there and get to work.”

What exactly that work will lead to remains to be seen, but Bakare said KU defensive coordinator Carl Torbush already had a few ideas in mind. “Coach Torbush said I would be like a hybrid for them,” Bakare said. “He liked how I could make plays. He did a great job recruiting me. He didn’t sugar-coat anything. He told me about his coaching background and how he planned on using me. He liked my speed and I plan on getting faster.”

COLORADO SENIOR GUARD CORY HIGGINS SHOOTS during a game at the Coors Events Center in Boulder, Colo. Higgins averages 16.1 points a game for the Buffaloes.

years. But for you, you only get one crack at your career, and you’re going into your senior year. You only have one senior year. I want to make it as special for you and all of our seniors as I can. The only way we do that is if we keep this group together.” Higgins said the candid meeting with Boyle made him connect with his new coach rather quickly. “He wanted me to trust him,” Higgins recalled. “And he asked for my trust. I could tell that from him just looking me in the eye that I could trust him.” Heading into today’s 7 p.m. matchup against No. 6 Kansas (18-1, 3-1 Big 12) at the Coors Events Center, the Buffaloes (14-6, 3-2) are one of the surprise teams in the conference. They’ve already taken care of No. 11 Missouri and Oklahoma State in Boulder, and stunned Kansas State in Manhattan. CU sits in a tie for fourth in the league standings. Colorado, like several teams in the Big 12, has had its share of road woes, losing at Nebraska and at Oklahoma. Nonetheless, these don’t appear to be the same old bottom-feeder Buffaloes. From the time Boyle held his first Colorado practice, a noticeable change from the recent past was evident. ● Boyle hands out tips of the day to his players. He does this daily. There’s an offensive tip, a defensive tip and a quote of the day. It’s fair to say that Buffaloes players are bestserved learning all three quickly. “It’s almost like a homework assignment,” said Higgins, who averages 16.1 points

per game, second on the team to Burks’ 19.6. “I thought it was pretty interesting. If you don’t remember all three, then we’re going to run. It just makes us more mentally intune in practice.” Higgins said sample tips included pressuring the ball, staying in your stance, sprinting to offense and sprinting to defense. The consequence for forgetting the tips results in extra conditioning. Boyle has the team run what Higgins called 22’s. Down-and-back, down-and-back — the full length of the court twice — in 22 seconds or less. “It’s not too bad. But if you keep piling them on, they get pretty bad,” Higgins said, laughing. ● Boyle conducts an intense box-out drill every day in practice. Why? Colorado ranked dead last in the Big 12 in rebounding for all three of Bzdelik’s seasons in Boulder. The box-out drill is rather simple. Shot goes up. You box your guy out and do anything you can to grab the rebound. All parts of the gym are fair game. “There’s no out of bounds, so it’s just the first one to get the ball,” Higgins explained. “Guys are flying around, flying into chairs. It’s pretty intense, but it’s fun. I think (Burks) went up to the third or fourth row to get a ball one time.” Colorado grabbed only 28.5 rebounds per game last season. This year, they’re already up to 36 per contest. And even though that’s only good for ninth in the league, they’re not last anymore. ● Boyle, 47, has altered Colorado’s style of play. For the most part, Bzdelik engi-

neered slower, more methodical offensive sets where CU would run the shot clock down to single digits with regularity. Not these Buffaloes. “We want a high-possession game,” Boyle said. “We want to get out and run. We play at 5,200 feet. I would say it’s not a coincidence that the Olympic Training Center is in Colorado (Colorado Springs). It’s not a coincidence that we have world-class runners and cyclists that train in Boulder, Colo. You train where we train, and you can go when you go down to sea level. When they come to play you? They’re going to feel it. We have to take advantage of that.” Two of the last three years under Bzdelik, Colorado ranked 305th or slower out of 345 Div. I teams in the country in tempo. This season under Boyle, the Buffaloes are 126th in the country in tempo, averaging 68.4 possessions per game. The NCAA average is 67.2. Under Boyle’s leadership, Higgins said he hopes Colorado’s rise in the conference standings continues. Colorado hasn’t made an NCAA Tournament appearance since 2003. The highest CU has ever finished in the Big 12 standings was second, but that was back in 1996-97. Since then, the Buffs have been no higher than fourth. “I think he’s going to take us places we haven’t been in the past few years,” Higgins said of Boyle. “We’re already a tight-knit group of guys. I think the chemistry is there. Our goal is to get to the NCAA Tournament. I don’t think we should sell ourselves short of that.”

’Pioneers’ recalls the late, great Western “Pioneers of Television” (7 p.m., PBS, check local listings) looks back at classic Westerns. For a time in the late 1950s, the sturdy genre did not so much dominate the television schedule as devour it entirely. The perennial third-place network ABC devoted many half-hours to shows like “Colt .45,” “Maverick,” “Lawman” and “Cheyenne.” Over on NBC, you would see “Riverboat,” “Tales of Wells Fargo,” “Wagon Train,” “Wichita Town,” “Law of the Plainsman,” “Bat Masterson” and its new show “Bonanza.” CBS offered “The Texan,” “Johnny Ringo,” “Dick Powell’s Zane Grey Theatre,” “Rawhide,” “Wanted Dead or Alive,” “Have Gun, Will Travel” and “Gunsmoke,” the longest-running Western of them all. And those are just shows from the 1959 season. People couldn’t get enough of the cowboy shoot’em-ups and for a very interesting reason. Given the choice between watching a “serious” actor delivering angst-ridden dialogue in a stagy New York production and watching a young Clint Eastwood or James Garner dispatching bad guys with six-shooters, the average viewer chose the cowboys in a landslide. Westerns arrived en masse and all but ended “serious” network television and remained a programming staple until “Gunsmoke” was canceled in 1975. Elements of the Western would show up in outer-space dramas, the gangster genre and even “24,” but the hugely popular classic TV Western remains as dead as vaudeville. ● Fans who think they know all about Joan Rivers from her recent documentary “A Piece of Work” should guess again. The new contrived and highly entertaining reality series “Joan and Melissa: Joan Knows Best” (8 p.m., WE) arrives with a whole new chapter for the potty-mouthed comic. On “Knows,” confirmed New Yorker Joan decides to spend more time with her daughter and grandson and moves to Malibu, Calif. Naturally, complications ensue. Melissa doesn’t like Joan cursing and swearing around her son. For her part, Joan has a curiously moral streak and resents Melissa for keeping her live-in boyfriend a secret. Not believable for a second, “Knows” is still fun to watch. In one scene, Joan takes her grandson and her daughter’s entourage to the beach where her daughter’s attractive Nanny plays Marilyn to Joan’s Lily Munster. All good reality shows become sitcoms before long — sitcoms with very low budgets.

Tonight’s other highlights ● Sue’s mother (Carol Burnett) shows up on “Glee” (7 p.m., Fox). ● An anniversary ruined on “No Ordinary Family” (7 p.m., ABC). ● President Barack Obama delivers the State of the Union Address (8 p.m., CBS, NBC, Fox, ABC, Fox News, CNN, CNBC, Fox Business, MSNBC). ● Forty candles loom on “Lights Out” (9 p.m., FX). ● “Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel“ (9 p.m., HBO) profiles player-turnedbroadcaster Troy Aikman and sportswriter Peter King; also, health problems among massive NFL linemen.

JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS For Tuesday, Jan. 25: This year, you often choose to pull back and take the high road. Experiences will open you up to many different perceptions. You gain compassion and acceptance. If you are single, someone quite different could strut into your life any day. If you are attached, the two of you will experience greater closeness as you open up to new outlooks. Scorpio can push your buttons. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You'll Have: 5Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult Aries (March 21-April 19) ★★★★★ Defer. It makes others feel confident that you trust them. That thought might or might not be true. Tonight: Schedule some one-on-one talk time. Taurus (April 20-May 20) ★★★ Complete what you must. A boss or an older person might not be aware of how demanding a request might be. Tonight: Squeeze in some exercise. Gemini (May 21-June 20) ★★★★ Your creativity adds to your ability to accomplish projects. Someone might see you as

a solution-finder. Tonight: Could be late. Cancer (June 21-July 22) ★★★★ Stay centered, and understand what others want as opposed to what you might think they need. You have a decision to make. Tonight: Let fun in; let your inner child out. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) ★★★★ Make that extra effort to connect with others. A wave and a "hi" can elevate someone's mood and change his or her day. Tonight: Happy to get home. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) ★★★★ Take a hint from Leo. Be aware of how much needs to be accomplished. Look to the end results. Determine what must be done first. Tonight: Hang out with a friend. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) ★★★★ Others often find you to be a great source of ideas. Handle all the people and inquiries. The question remains: What is essential for you to complete? Tonight: Your treat. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) ★★★★ If you can work from home, do. You might get a lot more done. Nevertheless, a flirtation or a child has the capacity to toss your plans in the air. Tonight: Smiling broadly —

finally. Time to socialize. Sagittarius (Nov. 22Dec. 21) ★★★★ Meetings might point the way. You might be taken aback by a premonition. You might be startled by how right-on you could be. Tonight: A little mystery goes a long way. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) ★★★★ You assume your normal role. Investing too much — be it money, hours or an innate gift — into a project could be a mistake. Tonight: Find your friends. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) ★★★★ Look for the passage you have not seen. Decide where you might be holding yourself back. Open yourself up to a risk. Tonight: Catching up on everything that you didn't do. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) ★★★★★ A partnership, though perhaps not acknowledged, could be instrumental in moving forward. Travel and education could be some of the paths to the end. Tonight: Break out of the box in your thinking.

Dear Annie: I come from an extremely dysfunctional family. I am 50 years old and have been estranged from my family since I was 31. I do not miss them and have no desire for contact. I’ve had only a few longterm relationships in my life. I am currently cohabiting with a 52-year-old man who had never been in a relationship before me. For the first two years, he was wonderful, but when I pressed for marriage, he backed away. He knew I was interested in a private ceremony because of my family estrangement, and he agreed with me. But when he finally proposed, he objected to the small ceremony and put off the wedding. I know he really does not want to marry me, although I suspect he would have gone through with it to please me if I had been more flexible. But I did not want to give in and threatened to leave. We did not speak for a week, and then he called his mother and told her everything, including my wish for a private ceremony. He also told her many things I had said when we were arguing, including that I wish I had never met him. I asked him to come with me for counseling, but he refused, saying he doesn’t want anyone knowing his

K-State slips past Baylor The Associated Press

Kansas State 69, Baylor 61 MANHATTAN — Jacob Pullen and Will Spradling had 17 points apiece, and slow-starting Kansas State held on Monday night for a ragged, foulplagued victory over Baylor. The Wildcats (14-7, 2-4), who had lost four of five and tumbled into last place in a Big 12 race they’d been favored to win, used an 11-1 run early in the second half to regain control after the Bears (13-6, 3-3) erased a 25-18 halftime deficit with a quick flurry of three-pointers. Quincy Acy led Baylor with 14 points. LaceDarius Dunn fouled out with nine seconds left after scoring 13 points, seven below his league-leading average. Curtis Kelly’s dunk gave Kansas State a 60-50 lead, but the Bears cut it to 60-55 on a three-point play by Perry Jones. It was 63-58 with 28.8 seconds left when Kansas State’s Juevol Myles hit two free throws — his only points of the game. It was a scruffy first half by teams that were nationally ranked when the season began. They combined on 15for-52 shooting and 19 fouls and 20 turnovers — 10 apiece. A.J. Walton drilled two of the Bears’ four three-pointers early in the second half, but also picked up two quick fouls and went to the bench with his fourth at the 16:12 mark. Dunn also connected from beyond the arc and then a fourth three from Stargell Love gave the Bears a 30-29 lead. Rodney McGruder answered with a three-pointer over the Baylor zone defense and ignited an 11-1 spree capped by a threepointer by Pullen that shot the Wildcats into a 40-31 lead with 12:50 to go. Jamar Samuels scored for Kansas State, then McGruder

connected again from beyond the arc. After J’Mison Morgan’s turnover, Pullen’s three put the Wildcats on top by nine. Jones soared to the bucket for one of the more impressive dunks Bramlage Coliseum has seen this year, but Spradling answered with another three-pointer for Kansas State’s fourth three in its last five field goals and a 43-33 lead.
