Rock star planning movie on Stull

Bill would allow guns on campus


Residents fear film will bring undesirable attention to cemetery By Chad Lawhorn

Even for the Stull Cemetery this showdown seems a little surreal. In one corner, there is Slash — the heavy-metal rock icon and former lead guitarist for the band Guns N’ Roses. In the other corner, there is Iona, an 86-yearold rural Douglas County resident intent on keeping riffraff out Slash’s film will of her neighbornot be made in hood’s historic Kansas. cemetery. It sure appears a clash is coming. According to reports in The Hollywood Reporter, a trade publication that covers the movie industry, Slash’s newly formed film company has signed a deal to produce a horror movie with a plot that centers on the Stull Cemetery and the urban legend that the cemetery about 10 miles west of Lawrence is one of the seven gateways to Hell. News of the production has created a fury, not of the demonic type but more of the neighborhood type. “I would like to get a hold of whoever this fellow is,” said Iona Spencer, who has lived near the cemetery for the last 65 years, “so I can tell him to just shut it up.” The movie is scheduled to begin filming next month, but none of the shooting will happen


Regents and KU strongly opposed By Scott Rothschild

TOPEKA — Gun rights advocates on Wednesday pushed for passage of a bill that would allow concealed carry of handguns on college campuses and public buildings, such as libraries, city halls and day care centers in city facilities. Rep. Forrest Knox, R-Altoona, said after a hearing on House Bill 2353 that he thought Knox his measure would be approved by the Legislature this year. It has won approval before in the House but hasn’t gained traction yet in the Senate. “Currently any building, public or private, can be posted prohibiting concealed carry regardless of the level of security provided within the building,” Knox told the House Federal and State Affairs Committee. Patricia Stoneking, president of the Kansas State Rifle Association, said, “We need to understand that criminals will not abide by the law of the signs. These signs are disarming only law-abiding permit licensees.”

State’s homeless shelters report increase in clients, especially displaced families

K-State president discusses drive to secure NBAF funding By Andy Hyland

The leader of Kansas State University said the university is continuing to push for funding from the federal government in support of the National Bio and Agro-Defense Facility scheduled to be built in Manhattan. Given the current federal climate, any project requiring new funding could be on the chopping block, said Kansas State President Kirk Schulz during a visit with the Journal-World’s editorial staff. “We’ll have a fight every year in Washington to make sure that it stays a priority,” he said. NBAF was among several topics Schulz touched on Wednesday: NBAF: After years of work, the major federal biosecurity lab in Manhattan still needs federal funding secured. Schulz said $90 million committed to the project and $80 million worth of construction is set to begin next month. But the project will cost

Homeless shelters across Kansas and the country participated in the annual Pointin-Time Homeless Count this week, trying to come up with an accurate picture of homelessness. Some shelter representatives in Kansas, which conducted the count Wednesday, say one thing will be clear from the federal survey: They’re packed and the numbers keep growing. “This is probably as bad as it’s been,” said Emily Wagner, director of the Manhattan Emergency Shelter, which can house up to 47 people. Wagner said her shelter is now almost always full, and this year was the first time people were turned away on some nights. Locally, overcrowding at the Lawrence Community Shelter has been a constant issue, with the shelter using overflow space on most nights to accommodate

the 100 or so seeking shelter, said Loring Henderson, shelter director. A move to a larger facility in September will allow the shelter to house up to 125 people, but for the time being, he said, “It’s pretty packed.” The annual counts, mandated by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, or HUD, have given a clearer picture of homelessness in Kansas during the past few years.

In 2007, the count identified 2,111 homeless people in the state. That number dipped to 1,811 in 2009, but jumped by more than 40 percent to 2,570 in 2011. Douglas County has seen homeless numbers double between 2009 and 2011, from 112 to 226. The state’s four largest counties — Johnson, Sedgwick, Shawnee and Wyandotte — also saw large increases during the past few years, according to Point-in-Time statistics. The results of this year’s count may be deceiving, however, as it will focus only on people in shelters and will not include people who are camping, sleeping in cars, or doubled up with friends and family. In 2013, a more comprehensive survey will be done. In addition to a general increase in the homeless population, shelters also report that in the past year there’s been a shift in who’s showing up at their doors.

Essie Robetta Millner Dresser, 91, died peacefully on January 22, 2012. She was born August 8, 1920, in Norfolk, Virginia, the daughter of Edward Lee and Willie Wingfield Millner. Essie graduated from Farmville Teachers’ College (now Longwood College) and Dresser soon began a long career in education. In 1942, she married Harold Dresser in Newport News, Virginia, when he was stationed at Fort Monroe. After World War II, the family moved to Harold’s home town of Leavenworth, Kansas, where Essie taught elementary school. She later studied library science and served as a librarian in Leavenworth and Fort Leavenworth schools. Essie enjoyed reading, word games, and puzzles, and solved the New York Times crossword puzzle every day until shortly before her death. After moving to the Kansas City area, Essie joined P.E.O and acted in plays with the Senior Barn Players. Essie was a devoted and beloved wife, mother,

grandmother, and greatgrandmother and is survived by two sons, Guy and wife Dede of Lawrence, Kansas, and John and wife Susan, of Statesville, North Carolina; a daughter, Ann and husband Rick of Olathe, Kansas; five grandchildren and ten greatgrandchildren. Her husband Harold preceded her in death in 1976. Essie’s family would like to express our deep gratitude to the people who supported her through her illness with compassion and respect: her doctors, Lakeview Village personnel, including the staff at Eastside Terrace, and the dedicated staff of Kansas City Hospice. A celebration of Essie’s life will be held at D.W. Newcomer’s Sons Johnson County Chapel, 11200 Metcalf Avenue, on Sunday, January 29th at 4:30 p.m.; burial will be private. Memorials may be sent to Cross-Lines, 736 Shawnee Avenue, Kansas City, Kansas, 66105. Fond memories and condolences for the family may be left at (Arrangements by D.W.

University students started showing up at the cemetery on Halloween — she thinks because a professor and a report in the student newspaper billed the cemetery as haunted. “One time we had several hundred kids standing on graves because they were told if they stood on a grave, the devil would come up,” Spencer said. “Well guess what? He didn’t come up.” The no-show, however, did nothing to stop the legend from growing. On the Internet, it is easy to find stories that one of the graves at Stull is of a witch who was a girlfriend of the Devil. Or that the place is so demonic that Pope John Paul II once ordered his plane to not fly over eastern Kansas. All nonsense, neighbors say, but not all harmless. The caretaker for the cem-

etery, who asked that his name not be published, said he still has to repair vandalism at the cemetery about two times per month, with broken tombstones the most serious infractions. As the legend has taken to the Internet, the vandals and onlookers have become much more than just college students, he said. The old church — where Satan’s “unholy son” is entombed, according to one version of the tale — was suddenly torn down in 2002. The caretaker, though, said that hasn’t done anything to slow down the unwelcome visitors. Now, Spencer and others worry how many new onlookers may come to the site if an entire movie is devoted to the legends of Stull. Indeed, that appears to be the focus of Slash’s venture.

Condolences for the family may be left online at Westine was born March 18, 1929 in Eads, CO, the daughter of Roy and Laura (Hill) Anderson. Westine attended schools in Nortonville and began working at an early age. She worked for five years at the Elms Nursing Home, prior to its closing, in Winchester, KS, before working at the Village Villa Nursing Home in

Nortonville, as a medication aide for over thirteen years. Westine then moved to La Junta, CO and worked at the Copper Kitchen for five years before moving to Pasadena, TX to live with her sister until 2003. In 2003, Westine moved to McLouth. Westine’s focus was her family and she loved spending time with them. She was Protestant by faith. Westine and Lester Noll were married from October 25, 1947 until September 29, 1989. Lester survives.

at Stull. Instead, the movie is slated to be shot in Louisiana, according to The Reporter. But Spencer said that doesn’t do much to ease her mind because the movie undoubtedly will spread the “lies” that the cemetery is haunted, which will lead to more sightseers and vandals. “People don’t understand that what they do to this cemetery is very hurtful to those of us who have loved ones here,” said Spencer, who has 10 family members buried at the cemetery. Neighbors in the area have tried to ward off the cemetery’s association with the occult for decades now. Spencer estimated that it was in the 1970s that Kansas

resentatives with Anchor Bay Films, the company that signed a deal to distribute the movie, or Slash’s Slasher Films, were not successful on Wednesday. But according to The Hollywood Reporter, the movie, titled “Nothing to Fear,” is being dubbed as a tale of “a family whose journey towards a better life in a small town is savagely derailed by a charismatic but emotionally conflicted man of the cloth.” The Reporter article goes on to say the movie will be set in Stull, and then suggests a “road trip” to see the alleged gateway to Hell. That, of course, is what residents don’t want to see. Spencer said several neighbors keep an eye on the property and call the sheriff when they see suspicious activity. The cemetery is posted as a no-trespassing

area, which Spencer said is perhaps the saddest part of this story. “A cemetery is supposed to be the most peaceful place on earth,” Spencer said. “It is supposed to be the one place you know that you can go and no one will ever hurt you.” — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362.

BRIEFLY Anti-abortion proposal decried by advocates TOPEKA — Abortion rights advocates say an anti-abortion proposal pending in the Kansas House would limit women’s access to birth control. But a key supporter of the measure says those worries are exaggerated. Rep. Steve Brunk, a Bel Aire Republican, says it only ensures that medical professionals who oppose abortion can’t be demoted or LEGISLATURE fired for refusing to participate in terminating pregnancies, including with medication. The so-called “conscience protection” bill was introduced Tuesday. It expands a law preventing medical personnel from being forced to participate in abortions. The bill would extend the protection to medical professionals who don’t want to participate in prescribing or administering drugs or devices they believe could end a pregnancy. Planned Parenthood said the bill is broad enough to cover birth control. Brunk said it’s narrowly drafted.

Finney County offers online visits to inmates GARDEN CITY — A new video system allows more visits between Finney County Jail inmates and their loved ones while reducing overcrowding in the jail’s lobby that often left visitors waiting for hours. The system allows people to contact an inmate from anywhere with a suitable computer and Internet connection. Visits are allowed from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. seven days a week. Previously, visitors who went to the jail had to wait hours to get a secure spot on the old video system during visits from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Friday, The Garden City Telegram reported. The main catch is that visits now cost money — 50 cents a minute or $10 for a 20-minute visit, the maximum time allotted. The county receives 40 percent of the proceeds from the visits. Finney County Jail Administrator Mark Welch said when the jail expanded from 55 beds to 220 beds, people often had to spend hours waiting for a spot during the three-hour time frame. “If you were here before, the lobby would be full and difficult for staff to deal with,” Welch said. “It’s like nobody is out here now.” Tech Administrator Lt. Robert Hahn said the company that runs the service, HomeWAV, paid the cost of installing the equipment, while the sheriff’s department paid about $20,000 to update wiring from the old system. The system opened for use Jan 12.

The KBA was created in 2004 and tasked with using $581 million in tax funds over 10 years to expand bioscience research and business in Kansas. The KBA has provided about $50 million to the cancer center to develop stateof-the-art facilities and recruit world-class scientists, according to KU.

In 1972, a group of students and staff members occupied what was the East Asian Studies building, 1322 La., Davis and presented a list of demands for the administration. They were assisted by others, including faculty members, on the outside of the building, too, said Tami Albin, an associate librarian at KU who has researched the incident. Albin and another oral historian, KU professor Sherrie Tucker, will interview six people involved in the effort, including three people who were inside the building, Mary Coral, C.J. Brune and Christine Smith, along with three retired KU professors: Beth Schultz, Marilyn Stokstad and Betty Banks. The discussion is scheduled at 7 p.m. Feb. 4 in the Spencer Museum of Art auditorium. Please see ANNIVERSARY, page 4A

“I am grateful to people in Douglas County who want to help us get the word out about what we are doing to feed people,” he said. The need for its services is growing. In 2011, Just Food distributed $676,503 worth of food, or about 880,000 meals, for free to 84,699 people, a 21 percent increase from a year earlier. Farmer said the pantry saw a 79 percent increase in the number of elderly residents

DOUGLAS COUNTY OFFICIALS MEET Wednesdsay outside the Douglas County Courthouse after an evacuation of the courthouse and the Law Enforcement Center because of a suspicious package found on the east side of the courthouse. From left are Kay Pesnell, county register of deeds; Steven Miles, county appraiser; County Administrator Craig Weinaug; and Yvonne Rapp, county deputy treasurer. The suspicious package, which is pictured below, appeared to be an express mail pouch of some type laying in front of a black backpack and was determined to be nothing “of concern.”

Suspicious package found near courthouse causes evacuation Nothing explosive or dangerous discovered By George Diepenbrock and Alex Garrison;

An Overland Park bomb squad did not find anything “of concern” in a package left outside of the Douglas County Courthouse on Wednesday afternoon, according to County Administrator Craig Weinaug. “We’ve been given the allclear,” Weinaug said at 4:50 p.m. Authorities closed the building for more than two hours, and county commissioners even met in nearby South Park as the explosives team responded to the courthouse, 1100 Mass., which houses the county’s administrative offices.

Douglas County Undersheriff Steve Hornberger said officers at 2:25 p.m. received a report of an unknown and unattended suspicious package in the bushes east of the courthouse and notified both LawrenceDouglas County Fire Medical workers and the team from Overland Park. It appeared to be a large, white packaging envelope in front of a black backpack, but Hornberger said Wednesday evening the package contained “nothing dangerous or explosive in nature.” “Just to make sure that there was no danger to property or individuals, we took

what we believe were appropriate precautions to have it investigated,” Hornberger said. John Pendleton was inside the courthouse Wednesday afternoon. “A sheriff’s deputy came door-to-door and requested we leave by an entrance not on the east side of the building,” Pendleton said. Weinaug said that because it was close to 5 p.m., the building did not reopen to the public Wednesday. Authorities also closed 11th Street between Massachusetts and New Hampshire streets. The Overland Park team also responded to a call about a suspicious object east of Lawrence on Wednesday morning that turned out to be an old piece of a natural gas line, Hornberger said. — Reporter George Diepenbrock can be reached at 832-7144.

BRIEFLY A.G. targets scams of military families Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt is asking other states to cooperate in a new federal database that will track scam artists who target military families and try to elude authorities. “Crooks and scam artists who prey on military families require a particular focus from law enforcement authorities,” Schmidt said. “Kansas law gives our office special authority to go after those who prey on military families, and we are working toward better cooperation with other states and with federal authorities so there is no place to hide.” He and Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway, who are co-chairmen of a consumer protection committee for the National Association of Attorneys General, have sent a letter to other states urging them to cooperate with federal authorities on providing information about convictions and judgments. Schmidt’s office announced the nationwide database, called the Repeat Offenders Against Military Database, or ROAM Database, is available to law enforcement and will include information on civil and criminal enforcement actions against companies and individuals who have victimized military families. According to the letter, scam artists often move from state to state. “The initial issue this presents is simply identifying who the repeat offenders are,” Schmidt and Conway wrote in their letter, “especially when they may operate under different corporate names.”

Park early Wednesday. A person at Riverfest Park, 33440 W. 79th St., noticed the car in the water 50 yards from the shore, and the sheriff’s office called in an Overland Park dive team.

Please join us for coffee and refreshments as we celebrate our community’s achievement and look forward to continued success in 2012.


After the brief occupation, members of the February Sisters group met with administrators and began to address their list of demands. Many of their demands — a child day-care center on campus, more female administrators, better health services for women at the campus health center and the establishment of a women’s studies program — were eventually met. Today, the executive vice chancellor of the KU Medical Center is a woman, seven of KU’s 13 academic deans are women and, of course, the university’s chancellor, Bernadette Gray-Little, is a woman. “Who’d have thought that 40 years ago?” said Ann Schofield, a KU professor of women, gender and sexuality studies who has been helping to coordinate the week of events. The week will feature a public lecture by feminist scholar and activist Angela Davis. “We saw her as someone who is going to be able to pick up the theme of what was ac-

It’s the people on fixed incomes and younger families with younger children,” he said. “The statistics are pretty alarming.” For those questioning the irony of people stuffing themselves with chocolateand vanilla-flavored cupcakes with a light coating of butter cream frosting while benefiting the hungry, Farmer doesn’t see a problem. He thinks it’s a creative idea to raise awareness and money.

“There’s always going to be people who don’t think what you do is a good idea,” he said. “The important thing is to focus on what the Construction Cupcake Company and other downtown businesses are doing to benefit Just Food.” For a $1 donation, Just Food is able to provide five meals.

Plans to expand passenger rail service in Kansas get off track

There seems to be a very large distribution center under construction just northwest of the Lecompton interchange on the Kansas Turnpike. What is this building? Will it mean By Scott Rothschild jobs for Lawrence?


It is the new warehouse and printing facility for Berry Plastics, which has been discussed multiple times over the past year by city commissioners, county commissioners and economic development leaders. The approximately 600,000-squarefoot building will house about 200 employees, but most of those will be transferred from Berry’s production plant in Lawrence. There is expected to be about 12 new positions at the facility. But the project will free up large amounts of space in Berry’s production center. Economic development officials have said they are hopeful that the space will allow Berry to expand its plastic drink cup production line in Lawrence.

Homeless men, Wagner said her shelter is seeing more single women and families, something also seen at the Lawrence Community Shelter, which has been forced to increase the number of family areas during the past year. At the Topeka rescue Mission, director Barry Feaker said they’re seeing a similar dynamic, serving about 90 children in 2011. But even larger increases were probably prevented by federal dollars from the Homeless Prevention and Rapid Re-Housing Program, or HPRP, said Shannon Oury, executive director at the Lawrence-Douglas County Housing Authority. The funding was designed to prevent high-risk families from becoming homeless and

and another option would be between Oklahoma City and Kansas City, Mo., which would include a potential stop in Lawrence. Officials said the Newton route would probably have 200,000 passengers per year and the extension to Kansas City would have 270,000. The proposal has gained many advocates in towns along the proposed routes. According to a passenger rail service development plan released by KDOT, the cost of the infrastructure improvements for the Newton route would be $87.5 million and the Kansas City service to be $245.5 million.

LAW ENFORCEMENT REPORT • A burglary was reported at an apartment in tower A of Jayhawker Towers, in the 1600 block of West 15th Street, when someone entered the victim’s room between 9:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday and took a laptop computer valued at $2,600, according to a Kansas University Police report.

The Journal-World does not print accounts of all police reports filed. The newspaper generally reports: • Burglaries, only with a loss of $1,000 or more, unless there are unusual circumstances. To protect victims, we generally don’t identify them by name. • The names and circumstances of people arrested, only after they are charged. • Assaults and batteries, only if major injuries are reported. • Holdups and robberies.

to quickly re-house families who had become homeless. Since 2009, the LawrenceDouglas County Housing Authority has received more than $700,000 in funds for the program. Locally, the dollars made a significant impact, preventing 248 local families from becoming homeless and re-housing 48 other families, Oury said. But the funding is running out across the country and the state. Oury said that locally the HPRP funds expire in February. “There’s no more ‘get you over this hurdle’” funding, she said, and that’s causing big a concern in the housing assistance world. “There’s not another pot of money,” Oury said. “The money is getting scarcer and scarcer.” — Reporter Shaun Hittle can be reached at 832-7173.

He said that just because there were some issues with a former CEO of the authority didn’t mean the whole mechanism was broken. “Do you modify some things? Yes,” Schulz said. “Do we throw the whole thing out? Absolutely not.” Athletics and academics: Asked about the balance between academics and athletics, he said the school recently instituted a plan to stop subsidizing athletics with state money, phasing out a $2.5 million contribution over three years, and move to a system like KU’s, which is almost completely financed through private donations. He said the school took in $107 million in private donations last year, about $20 million to $25 million of which went to athletics. If athletics didn’t exist, he didn’t believe that it’s as simple as saying that entire balance would be given to academics, either. “It’s a Faustian bargain,” he said.

Baker’s oldest alumna dies at age 114 Baker University’s oldest alumna has died in Oregon at the age of 114. Delma Kollar died on Tuesday in the city of Creswell. She was a schoolteacher in Kansas and California before moving to Oregon in 1982 with her second husband, Harry Kollar, according to the Register-Guard. Though her family believed her to be born Oct. 31, 1898, in Lone Elm, based on 1900 and 1910 census records found online by the Gerontology Research Group, the group listed her birthday as 1897, the newspaper said. She was thought to be the fourth-oldest person in the world and the third in the United States, said Steve Rottinghaus, a Baker spokesman. He said she attended Baker from 1920 to 1922.

Amid tears, Giffords bids her farewell to Congress

Gay marriage returns to political spotlight

Seeing the light

By David Crary Associated Press

By Donna Cassata Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The applause rolled through the big chamber, growing ever louder as hundreds of Republicans and Democrats suddenly realized Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was back in the House. But this time she had come to say goodbye. Fellow lawmakers gave her a fitting send-off: cheers, hugs, a cascade of tributes and plenty of tears in a rare moment of political unity. A year since that fateful Saturday morning when Giffords was severely wounded during a shooting rampage in her home district, the Arizona congresswoman resigned on Wednesday with a plea for Giffords civility — and a hint that she’ll be back on the national stage. For now, the 41-year-old said, her movements and speech still halting, she needs to focus on her recovery. For all the kind words showered on her, Giffords reflected in her resignation letter about a level of respect that seems like an aberration these days in a bitterly divided Washington. In her five years in Congress, she said, “Always I fought for what I thought was right. But never did I question the character of those with whom I disagreed. Never did I let pass an opportunity to join hands with someone just because he or she held different ideals.” Said Republican Rep. Ted Poe of Texas in the first of many tributes: “Gabby is the spirit of bipartisanship that we should all learn from.” Giffords’ friend Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., became emotional before reading Giffords’ resignation letter in the well of the House. Rep. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., held Giffords’ hand. House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, cried after Giffords slowly made her way to the podium and handed him the envelope with her resignation letter.

Obama and GOP candidates offer a campaign preview By David Espo Associated Press

WEST PALM BEACH, FLA. — On a day that combined two campaigns into one, President Barack Obama on Wednesday challenged Republicans to raise taxes on the rich as GOP rivals Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich swiped at him on the economy and criticized each other over immigration. With a week to go before the Jan. 31 Florida Republican presidential primary, the polls suggested a tight race, although Romney and his allies seized a staggering advantage in the television ad wars. They have reported spending $14 million combined on commercials, many of them critical of Gingrich, and a total at least seven times bigger that the investment made by the former House speaker and an organization supporting him. Obama’s political timeline was a different one, Election Day on Nov. 6. In a campaignstyle appearance in Iowa, he demanded Congress approve a tax increase for anyone like Romney whose income exceeds $1 million a year.

“If you make more than a million dollars a year, you should pay a tax rate of at least 30 percent. If, on the other hand, you make less than $250,000, which includes 98 percent of you, your taxes shouldn’t go up,” he said after touring a manufacturing plant in Cedar Rapids and in a state that he won in 2008 that was expected to be a battleground in the fall. “This is not class warfare,” he said. “That’s common sense.” As Obama surely knew, it was an offer Gingrich, Romney and the anti-tax Republicans in Congress are likely to find easy to refuse. Referring to Obama’s call in the speech for Congress to end tax breaks that encourage companies to ship jobs overseas, Romney said he didn’t know of any. Instead, he said the president presides over “the most anti-business, anti-investment, anti-job creator administration I’ve ever seen, and so, what I’ll do — I’ll get America to work again. I spent 25 years in business.” Gingrich was far harsher at an appearance in Miami. “If he actually meant what

he said it would be a disaster of the first order,” Gingrich said of the president’s call for higher taxes on millionaires. The former House speaker said the president’s proposal would double the capital gains tax and “lead to a dramatic decline in the stock market, which would affect every pension fund in the United States.” “It would affect every person who has a 401(k). It would attack the creation of jobs and drive capital outside of the United States. It would force people to invest overseas. It would be the most anti-jobs single step he could take,” he said. Under current law, investment income is taxed as the rate of 15 percent, a fact that has come to the fore of the campaign in recent days with the release of Romney’s income tax return. Wages, by contrast, are taxed at rates that can exceed 30 percent. Electability is the top concern for GOP primary voters, according to polls taken in the early primary and caucus states, so both Republicans were eager to paint a contrast with the president.

School lunches to have more veggies, grains ALEXANDRIA, VA. — The first major nutritional overhaul of school meals in more than 15 years means most offerings — including the always popular pizza — will come with less sodium, more whole grains and a wider selection of fruits and vegetables on the side. First lady Michelle Obama and Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack announced the new guidelines during a visit Wednesday with elementary students. Mrs. Obama, also joined by celebrity chef Rachael Ray, said youngsters will learn better if they don’t have growling stomachs at school. “As parents, we try to prepare decent meals, limit how much junk food our kids eat and ensure they have a reasonably balanced diet,” Mrs. Obama said. “And when we’re putting in all that effort the last thing we want is for our hard work to be undone each day in the school cafeteria.” After the announcement, the three went through the line with students and ate turkey

With a flurry of coastto-coast developments this week, same-sex marriage is back in the political spotlight and likely to remain there through Election Day as a half-dozen states face potentially wrenching votes on the issue. In Maryland, New Jersey and Washington, bills to legalize same-sex marriage have high-powered support and good chances of passage in the legislature. Gay-marriage opponents in Maryland and Washington would likely react by seeking referendums in November to overturn those laws, while New Jersey’s Republican governor, Chris Christie, says he’ll veto the bill if it reaches him and prefers that lawmakers OK a referendum so voters can decide. In all three states, polls suggest voters are closely divided on whether gays should have the right to marry, so there’s a chance one could emerge as the first state to support same-sex marriage in a statewide vote. Maine voters also may

have an opportunity to vote for same-sex marriage in November; an announcement by gay-rights activists about a ballot-measure campaign is set for today. Proposed amendments for constitutional bans on gay marriage will be on the ballots in North Carolina on May 8 and in Minnesota on Nov. 6. In New Hampshire, Republicans who now control the legislature are mulling whether to repeal the 2009 law legalizing same-sex marriage. Their state is one of six with such laws, along with Connecticut, Iowa, Massachusetts, New York and Vermont, as well as the District of Columbia. Added together, the statelevel showdowns will likely raise the prominence of the marriage issue in the presidential campaign, even though it’s not a topic that the leading candidates tend to broach proactively. “There’s a lot going on,” said gay-marriage advocate Evan Wolfson, president of Freedom to Marry. “It means that candidates — whether Romney or Obama — who hope to avoid the discussion will not be able to.”

U.S., Danish hostages on way home after daring raid By Abdi Guled, Katharine Houreld and Robert Burns Associated Press

MOGADISHU, SOMALIA — Held captive since last fall, an ailing American woman and a Danish man are safely on their way home after a bold, dark-of-night rescue by U.S. Navy SEALs. The commandos slipped into a Somali encampment, shot and killed nine captors and whisked the hostages to freedom. The raid’s success was welcome news for the hostages and their families, for the military and for President Barack Obama, who was delivering his State of the Union speech as the mission was wrapping up Tuesday night. He did not mention it in his address but dropped a hint upon arriving in the House chamber by telling Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, “Good job tonight.” It was the second splashy SEAL Team 6 success in less than a year, following last May’s killing of Osama bin Laden in Pakistan. The SEALs apparently encountered some degree of resistance from the kidnappers at the encampment. One U.S. official said Wednesday that there was a firefight but the length and extent of the battle were unclear. Pentagon spokesmen said they could not confirm a gun battle, although one defense official said it was likely that the SEALs killed the kidnappers rather than capture them because they encountered armed resistance or the threat of resistance. The Pentagon was mostly tight-lipped about details on Wednesday, citing a need to preserve the secrecy that can give SEALs and other spe-

cial operations forces an edge against the terrorists, criminals and others they are ordered to kill or capture around the world under hazardous and often hostile conditions. Special operations forces, trained for clandestine, smallteam missions, have become a more prominent tool in the military’s kit since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. The Obama administration is expected to announce today that it will invest even more heavily in that capability in coming years. After planning and rehearsal, the Somalia rescue was carried out by SEAL Team 6, officially known as the Naval Special Warfare Development Group, according to two U.S. officials who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss a secret mission. The same outfit did the bin Laden mission, the biggest counter-terror success of Obama’s presidency. It was not clear whether any team members participated in both operations. One official said the SEALs parachuted from U.S. Air

Force aircraft before moving on foot, apparently undetected, to the outdoor encampment where they found American Jessica Buchanan, 32, and Poul Hagen Thisted, a 60-year-old Dane, who had been kidnapped in Somalia last fall. The raid happened near the town of Adado. Pentagon press secretary George Little said the captors were heavily armed and had “explosives nearby” when the rescuers arrived on the scene, but he was not more specific. He declined to say whether there was an exchange of gunfire and would not provide any further details about how the rescue was completed beyond saying all of the captors were killed by the Americans. The American raiders caught the kidnappers as they were sleeping after having chewed the narcotic leaf qat for much of the evening, a pirate who gave his name as Bile Hussein told The Associated Press by phone. Hussein said he was not present at the site but had spoken with other pirates who were, and that they told him nine pirates had been killed in the raid and three were “taken away.” A Pentagon spokesman, Navy Capt. John Kirby, said U.S. officials could not confirm that the kidnappers were engaged in piracy. He referred to them simply as “criminals.” Little said the decision to go ahead with the rescue was prompted in part by rising concern about the medical condition of Buchanan. He said he could not be specific without violating her privacy but did say U.S. officials had reason to believe her condition could be lifethreatening.


Notable The Federal Reserve went further than ever Wednesday to assure consumers and businesses that they’ll be able to borrow cheaply well into the future. The Fed pushed back the date for any likely increase in its benchmark interest rate by at least a year and a half, until late 2014 at the earliest. Its new timetable showed the Fed is concerned that the economy’s recovery remains stubbornly slow. But it also thinks inflation will stay tame enough for rates to remain at record lows without igniting price increases. Chairman Ben Bernanke cautioned that the Fed’s late-2014 horizon for any rate increase is merely its “best guess.” It has the flexibility to shift its timetable if the economic picture changes.

GOP pipeline bill raises ‘serious’ legal questions By Matthew Daly Associated Press

WASHINGTON — A Republican bill that would strip President Barack Obama of his authority to decide on a Canada-to-Texas oil pipeline raises “serious” legal questions, the State Department said Wednesday in objecting to the bill. Assistant Secretary of State Kerri-Ann Jones told Congress that the bill “imposes narrow time constraints and creates automatic mandates that prevent an informed decision” on the $7 billion Keystone XL pipeline. The bill, sponsored by Rep. Lee Terry, R-Neb., would transfer authority over the 1,700-mile pipeline to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. Obama blocked the $7 billion pipeline last week, saying officials did not have enough time to review an alternate route that avoided environmentally sensitive areas of Nebraska. The plan by Calgary-based TransCanada Corp. would carry tar sands oil from western Canada across Montana, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas and Oklahoma en route to refineries on the Texas Gulf Coast. Jones said Obama’s Jan. 18 decision to reject the pipeline was not based on the merits of the project but on the fact that officials did not have enough time to review the project before a deadline imposed by Congress. “We fought in World War II in less time than it has taken to decide on this project,” shot back Rep. Joe Barton, R-Texas.

“In all due respect, it is an insult to the American people to say you need more time.” TransCanada first applied to build the pipeline in 2008, under the Bush administration. Obama had delayed a decision on the pipeline in November, saying his administration needed time to review an alternate route that avoided environmentally sensitive areas of Nebraska, a route that still has not been proposed. But in an unrelated tax deal he cut with congressional Republicans, Obama had been boxed into making a decision by Feb. 21. The deal required that the project would go forward unless Obama declared by that date that it was not in the national interest. The president did just that last week. Republicans said after the president’s Jan. 18 announcement that the battle over Keystone was not over. Terry, the bill’s sponsor, said transferring authority for the project to FERC was “simply moving authority to an agency that understands pipelines. This legislation means that Keystone will progress in a timely manner and that our country gets the much-needed jobs and energy security that it will bring.” Jeffrey Wright, director of FERC’s Office of Energy Projects, said the agency has no authority or experience in determining where oil pipelines are located. FERC regulates interstate transmission of electricity, natural gas and oil. It also reviews proposals to build liquefied natural gas terminals and interstate natural gas pipelines.

EGYPTIANS SET UP AN OBELISK with the names of people who were killed during the 18-day uprising a year ago in Tahrir Square to mark the first anniversary Wednesday of the popular uprising that unseated President Hosni Mubarak in Cairo, Egypt.

Islamists, liberals square off in Egypt’s Tahrir By Maggie Michael and Sarah El Deeb Associated Press

CAIRO — Hundreds of thousands thronged major squares across Egypt on Wednesday, marking the first anniversary of the uprising that toppled Hosni Mubarak with rallies that laid bare the divisions that have replaced the unity of last year’s revolt. Cairo’s Tahrir Square, the epicenter of the 18 days of protests against Mubarak, was transformed into the focal point of the rivalry between revolutionary activists intent on showing they can still mobilize the street, and the Muslim Brotherhood, who emerged as Egypt’s dominant political force after a landslide victory in parliamentary elections. The secular activists want continued protests to force the immediate ouster of the generals who took power after Mubarak’s fall, saying they are just as dictatorial as the former president. The activists

touted their powerful turnout as a sign they can pressure the Brotherhood, who they fear will accommodate the military in order to ensure their own political dominance. “I have hope that these marches will be a message to the Brotherhood as much as the military council,” said Sahar Abdel-Mohsen, who walked 3 1/2 miles in a giant march across Cairo to Tahrir. “We all know even if the Brotherhood are strong, the military council is still stronger. ... What we all want is an end to military rule,” she said. Both sides were intent on bringing out as many supporters as possible to show their weight in a nation still reeling from the aftershocks of Mubarak’s ouster.

New planting map reflects global warming WASHINGTON — Global warming is hitting not just home, but garden. The colorcoded map of planting zones often seen on the back of seed packets is being updated by the government, illustrating a hotter 21st century. It’s the first time since 1990 that the U.S. Department of Agriculture has revised the official guide for the nation’s 80 million gardeners, and much has changed. Nearly entire states, such as Ohio, Nebraska and Texas, are in warmer zones. The new guide, unveiled Wednesday at the National Arboretum, arrives just as many home gardeners are receiving their seed catalogs and dreaming of lush flower beds in the spring. It reflects a new reality: The coldest day of the year isn’t as cold as it used to be, so some plants and trees can now survive farther north. “People who grow plants are well aware of the fact that temperatures have gotten more mild throughout the year, particularly in the wintertime,” said Boston University biology professor Richard Primack. “There’s a lot of things you can grow now that you couldn’t grow before.”

Hope fading President Obama’s State of the Union address gets high marks for style but failed to inspire Americans.


ew American presidents can match the manner in which President Obama can deliver a well-written State of the Union address. He is superb! However, Obama’s address Tuesday failed to inspire and enthuse his congressional audience or his national television audience. His strong and loyal political supporters said he had delivered a masterful message, but based on numerous reviews and critiques, the president fell short of the hopes of many. It was the usual State of the Union speech, delivered by both Democratic and Republican presidents. A president’s inaugural address and first State of the Union addresses outline dreams and changes for the better. The speech by an incumbent as he launches his campaign for a second term, tries to pass over failures and unmet promises, blame the lack of positive results on the other party and call for new, groundbreaking legislation. Obama’s Inaugural Address projected a new, brighter day for this nation and its people. His listeners were excited, and his call for “change” was accepted with enthusiasm and hope. Now, three years later, Obama’s message rang hollow. He tried calling for new efforts, new programs and new goals, but it didn’t have the punch many of his supporters had hoped for. Part of the problem is that he is dealing with many unsuccessful efforts during the past three years, and viewers and listeners have reason to wonder whether he can have a better record of success if given another four years in the White House. Many major conditions and challenges facing this country have not improved. In fact, they have become far more serious. In the Republican response to Obama’s speech Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels pointed out that the percentage of Americans with jobs is at the lowest level in decades, one in five men of prime working age and nearly half of all people under 30 are unemployed. In three years, he said, the national debt has jumped by trillions of dollars, the federal government now spends one of every four dollars in the nation’s economy and borrows one of every three dollars it spends. The governor added, “no feature of the Obama presidency has been sadder than its constant efforts to divide us, to curry favor with some Americans by castigating others.” It’s likely most presidential elections have been labeled as being “the most important of our generation.” Again, this is being said about the upcoming November election, but it does seem American voters will be asked to choose between two extremely differing philosophies in the 2012 election. One party calls for more government control in most every phase of our activities, and the other party believes government is meant to serve the people rather than supervise them. The “fundamental changes in this country” Obama favors are dangerous and, if the GOP is to be successful, the person selected to challenge Obama will have to be strong, smart, articulate, visionary, honest and believable. Otherwise, with a growing number of Americans now receiving federal assistance in one way or another and counting on Obama to continue this aid, it is going to be extremely difficult for the GOP to win the race for the White House. Four more years of the Obama administration will place this country in a perilous position. LAWRENCE

Gingrich makes coded appeal to racism I got my first job when I was 12. The deacons at my church paid me $2 a week to keep it swept and mopped. So I do not need Newt Gingrich to lecture me about a good work ethic. In this, I suspect I speak for the vast majority of 39 million African-Americans. There has been a lot of talk about whether Gingrich’s recent language, including his performance at last week’s South Carolina debate and his earlier declaration that Barack Obama has been America’s best “food stamp president,” amounts to a coded appeal to racist sensitivities. The answer is simple: yes. In this, Gingrich joins a line of Republicans stretching back at least to Richard Nixon. From that president’s trumpeting of “law and order” (i.e., “I will get these black demonstrators off the streets”) to Ronald Reagan’s denunciation of “welfare queens” (i.e., “I will stop these lazy black women from living high on your tax dollars”) to George H.W. Bush’s use of Willie Horton (i.e., “Elect me or this scary black man will get you”) the GOP long ago mastered the craft of using nonracial language to say

Leonard Pitts Jr.

For as much as Republicans decry the so-called politics of envy, they still seem right at home practicing the politics of racial resentment — and mass distraction.”

racial things. So Gingrich is working from a well-thumbed playbook when he hectors blacks about their work ethic and says they should demand paychecks and not be “satisfied” with food stamps. As if most blacks had ever done anything else. As if an unemployment rate that for some mysterious reason runs twice the national

average does not make paychecks hard to come by. As if blacks were the only, or even the majority of, food stamp recipients. When challenged on this by debate moderator Juan Williams, Gingrich went after it like Babe Ruth after a hanging curve ball, delivering a strident defense of the need to teach poor kids the value of a paycheck. “Only the elites,” he lectured, “despise earning money.” It won him a standing ovation. Let’s be clear. To the degree Gingrich’s argument is that stubborn, intergenerational poverty is often fed by habits and ways of life inimical to the building of wealth, he is exactly right. But those habits and ways afflict the white hollows of Appalachia as much as the black heart of urban America, and when Gingrich defines poverty solely as blackness, he is not critiquing poverty, but race. The South Carolina audience sure got the message. That state is one of the poorest in the Union: fifth-lowest median income, poverty rate of 18.2 percent. So if the point is just that the poor must get up off their

backsides, why would they applaud? They are the poor. They applaud because they understand he is not talking about them. He is saying, “Elect me and I will get these black people’s hands out of your pocket.” For as much as Republicans decry the so-called politics of envy, they still seem right at home practicing the politics of racial resentment — and mass distraction. In so doing, they tap a rich vein of stereotype and preconception about the supposed laziness of African-American people. One of my students shared this parable: A rich white man sits with a poor white man and poor black man at a table laden with cookies. The rich white man snatches all the cookies but one, then turns to the poor white man and says, “Watch out for that darky. I think he wants to take your cookie.” It works every time. — Leonard Pitts Jr., winner of the 2004 Pulitzer Prize for commentary, is a columnist for the Miami Herald.

Make sure gay people feel like outcasts … pro-life? Good job, Brownie. You are making our state an embarrassment. There are consequences for this kind of behavior. Charles Gruber, Lawrence

Nanny state To the editor: The Obama administration has once again flouted the Constitution of the United States by requiring religion-based hospitals and other health care facilities to provide contraceptives and abortifacients. The administration, by requiring that these faith-based health care facilities comply with this order from the Department of Health and Human Services, has crossed the line into oligarchic territory. The First Amendment clearly states: Congress shall make no law respecting and establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof ... When will the bigotry and assault on religion by this administration end? Will the administration argue next that a child in a religion-based school and receiving WIC assistance must be taught all forms of religion because Federal funds are fungible? Some of you may laugh at this assertion because it is absurd, but governmental intru-

sion into any freedom is just that, intrusion. Prior to 1973 and Roe v. Wade, it was thought absurd that anybody could perceive a child in the womb as anything other than a child. In one of the most cowardly rulings of a U.S. court they refused to acknowledge what medicine has taught for most of recorded history: Life begins at conception. Barack Hussein Obama continues to legislate from the oval office, callously trampling the rights of every American in order to push forward his nanny state agenda. Scott Burkhart, Lawrence

Wiley building To the editor: In the Public Forum of Jan. 16, Paul Gray suggests the Kansas University music building be named the Russell Wiley Music Building. I firmly agree. I was Wiley’s secretary for several years and watched him direct the musical groups and mentor students as they asked for his help. He was very busy but always made time for them. They liked participating in his bands and orchestra, as well as the personal attention they received. The Russell. L. Wiley Music Building will make sense to many alums. Penny Lungren, Lawrence

‘Fixing’ Kansas To the editor: What’s the matter with Kansas? Gov. Brownback apparently knows the answer: There is nothing wrong with Kansas that can’t be fixed by an unqualified out-ofstate “expert.” First, an inexperienced import from Florida “fixed” our social services system. Now, Arthur Laffer, a discredited Reaganomics retread from Nashville, has pocketed $75,000 for “fixing” our tax structure — so that the less one earns, the less one keeps!

Mr. Laffer assures us that a whopping tax increase for the very poorest Kansans will pay for itself by being “plowed back” into government programs to “help” these same people. But doesn’t this make low-income families more, rather than less, dependent on government? And isn’t that strategy merely a liberal ploy to subjugate individuals to the welfare state? Mr. Laffer’s public defense of his proposals is laughably false:

“Reducing taxes on high-earning individuals will create jobs.” No. Jobs are created by prosperous businesses, not individuals; individuals usually invest by acquiring existing wealth rather than creating new opportunities.

 “Taxing earned income is a disincentive for people to work.” No. How many of us plan on quitting our jobs to avoid paying income tax? In fact, the real economic disincentive is the regressive sales tax Mr. Laffer prefers. But all these problems are just the tip of an iceberg. If there is no taxation without representation, how do out-of-state “consultants” and secret “advisory” committees represent the taxpayers of Kansas? Maybe there is something the matter with Kansas — and maybe we should send it back to Nashville! Peter Gegenheimer, Lawrence

I listened to the mayor offer responses to points of concern. After leaving, I came to wonder how it is that the mayor is allowed to lead a task force that comes up with a recommendation he fostered and favors and in turn gets to vote on. It seems quite improper. Whether it’s a clear case of conflict of interest or not, if Mayor Cromwell has any integrity he will recuse himself from the final vote by the City Commission. Catherine Bolton, Lawrence

Clear choice

To the editor: Newt Gingrich is obviously the embodiment of conservative ideals and best represents exactly what the conservative Republicans are all about. He is the one candidate that the Republicans can present that will clearly give the nation a real choice between Conservative vs. liberal points of view and make a real difference as to the future direction of the nation. Gingrich and Obama clearly represent the different directions that America can choose for the future and this election is critical for time is short. Obama is also clearly the best representative of the liberal left and is dedicated to taking the nation in that direction most particularly with the national health issue. There are also clear choices in future national policies both foreign and domestic. So let’s pay close attention to the debates To the editor: and decide and vote your choice. I participated in the recent Everett Hickam, public forum sponsored by the Lawrence city’s Solid Waste Task Force.

Dynamite Davis KU’s No. 21 blows out 21st-ranked Texas Tech

Tom Keegan

Jayhawks on track for tourney appearance

By Matt Tait

Wednesday afternoon, Kansas University junior Carolyn Davis stopped by the office of KU women’s basketball coach Bonnie Henrickson and was shown a box score from a 2011 game against Texas Tech that revealed that Davis took just five shots in a road loss. After glancing at the box score and digesting what she saw, Davis asked about the square Henrickson had drawn around the five shot attempts. “‘Squares are bad, circles are good,’” Henrickson recalled telling Davis. “It was the only mark on the stat sheet and she put it back on my desk and said, ‘I gotcha.’” A few hours, 24 shots and 34 points later, Davis and the Jayhawks trounced No. 21 Texas Tech, 62-43, to pick up their second victory against a ranked opponent this season. “Once I saw that, it kind of drove me to play hard tonight,” said Davis when asked about the friendly reminder from her head coach. “It was kind of surprising. I didn’t realize that. I actually thought I played pretty good last year, but obviously not.” That wasn’t a problem Wednesday. Despite a couple of early misses — Davis was 10for-17 in the first half and 7-for7 in the second — the forward from Houston found her rhythm by getting great position, running the floor and converting with confidence. “She didn’t finish well early, and we talked in the huddle about how she had to take out her frustration on the rim,” Henrickson said. Added junior guard Angel Goodrich: “I wouldn’t say I’m shocked or anything because we need her to do that. We need her to be who she is.” Thanks to Wednesday’s performance, Davis is now tops in Please see KU WOMEN, page 3B

KANSAS UNIVERSITY FORWARD CAROLYN DAVIS (21) SHOOTS OVER Texas Tech defender Ebony Walker (42) for two of her game-high 34 points on Wednesday at Allen Fieldhouse.

Even without sophomore scoring sensation Keena Mays, who quit the team after her hottest stretch of games, and even without Asia Boyd, the highest-ranked recruit of the Bonnie Henrickson era, getting meaningful minutes, the Kansas University women’s basketball team has what it takes to get to the NCAA Tournament. Yeah, yeah, yeah, you’ve read the “this is the year the drought ends” stuff before and have developed such an immunity to it you can’t even hear the wolf cry anymore, but this year really is different. Honest. No lie. I’m typing, so you already know my fingers aren’t crossed. Sure, the Jayhawks didn’t look their best for stretches Wednesday night in scoring a 62-43 victory against a Texas Tech squad that was without its leading scorer and rebounder, Kierra Mallard. But they showed enough skill and savvy to make a ticket to the underthe-rim version of March Madness seem not only realistic, but probable. Eighth-year coach Bonnie Henrickson has had talent in the past and, at times, even healthy talent. But she never has had three experienced players performing at such a high level at the same time. The divergent talents of junior center Carolyn Davis, senior power forward Aishah Sutherland and junior point guard/magician Angel Goodrich complement each other so well that it’s difficult to see a scenario in which they won’t figure out a way to deliver Kansas an NCAA Tournament bid Please see KEEGAN, page 3B


Lawrence High backs up No. 2 rank against Free State By Benton Smith

Mike Yoder/Journal-World Photo

FREE STATE’S SPENCER WILSON, LEFT, AND LAWRENCE HIGH’S REECE WRIGHTCONKLIN, RIGHT, STRUGGLE FOR POSITION in a battle of top-ranked 182-pound wrestlers on Wednesday at LHS. Wright-Conklin won on points as the Lions defeated the Firebirds overall.

The order of events was atypical Wednesday night for the wrestling edition of the city showdown, but the results weren’t out of the ordinary for Lawrence High, the No. 2 team in Class 6A. The Lions held off rival Free State, 54-21, in a dual that began with the 138-pound weight class instead of the usual starting point, 106. Lawrence coach Pat Naughton thought the already highly anticipated dual would have some extra flair if the rundown got shaken up. He and FSHS coach Mike Gillman agreed to randomly draw a weight class that would start the dual at LHS, and 138 was chosen. With five ranked wrestlers between 106 and 132, the varied schedule could have rattled Lawrence, but the Lions still opened the dual with a pair of pinfall victories by sophomores

Austin Magdaleno (138) and Ryan Bellinger (145). When Free State answered with back-to-back wins by junior Ben Soukup (152) and sophomore Stan Skwarlo (160), Naughton said LHS started feeling the impact of the revamped order. “We’re strong all the way through, but it’s our lightweights that kind of start us off,” Naughton said. “But tonight, with the start at 138, we kind of put the pressure on our bigger guys to get going,” Lawrence held a slim 12-9 lead after four matches, but LHS senior Nick Pursel scored another pin for the Lions heading into the most anticipated match of the night between the top two 182-pounders in 6A, No. 1 Reece Wright-Conklin of LHS and No. 2 Spencer Wilson of FSHS. Early in the first period, Wright-Conklin took Wilson down and looked like he might manage an early pin. However, Wilson kept his shoulders off

the mat then and for the remainder of the match before WrightConklin picked up a 10-6 victory and handed Wilson his first loss of the season. Despite the setback, Wilson complimented his foe for the quick start. “At the beginning I wasn’t sure how it was gonna go, and he caught me,” Wilson said. To the Free State junior’s credit, Wright-Conklin said, the match kept going. “I should’ve had him there,” the LHS senior said, “but he was a strong fighter. He was stronger than I thought he was gonna be.” In the next contested weight class, Lions senior Brad Wilson kept his outstanding season going with a pin of Tyler Sampson. After LHS won eight of the 11 contested matches, Brad said he was proud of his Lawrence teammates. “We came out and wrestled Please see WRESTLING, page 10B

Colts name Ravens defensive coordinator Pagano their new coach INDIANAPOLIS — The Indianapolis Colts hired Baltimore Ravens defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano as their new head coach on Wednesday. The team said Pagano would be introduced at a news conference today. It will be the first head coaching job for the 51-year-old Pagano, who has been a career assistant until now with stops in Oakland and Cleveland in the NFL and stints at schools including Miami and North Carolina.

The Colts fired Caldwell last week after three seasons.


Raiders, Allen finalizing deal ALAMEDA, CALIF. — For more than three decades, the Oakland Raiders operated under a similar formula with late owner Al Davis hiring offensive-minded head coaches and remaining deeply involved in devising the team’s defense. That pattern has changed with new general manager Reggie McKenzie’s first major hiring since taking over the football operations earlier this month. McKenzie is finalizing a contract to make Denver defensive coordinator Dennis Allen

the team’s next head coach, a person familiar with the process said Wednesday on condition of anonymity because the team is not publicly discussing the search.

Goodell’s contract extended NEW YORK — NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has had his contract extended through the 2018 season. The league says a resolution was approved at a December owners meeting to negotiate an extension with Goodell, who took over for Paul Tagliabue in 2006. His original fiveyear contract was extended in 2009, and the new extension was announced Wednesday.

Teahan working to correct three woes By Jesse Newell

Conner Teahan didn’t need a stack of box scores to give an evaluation of his recent three-point shooting stats. “They’re not good,” the senior guard said following KU’s 64-54 victory over Texas A&M on Monday. “You know what? I don’t even know what the numbers are, but when was the last time I made more than two threes in a game? I can’t remember.” It’s actually been four games since Teahan put in a pair of treys, as he went 2-for6 from three in KU’s 81-46 victory over Texas Tech Teahan on Jan. 11. Against Texas A&M, the Leawood native made one of five threes to drop his season average to 36 percent (32 of 88). “It is frustrating, because you know that’s what you’re supposed to do. That’s what you bring to the team,” Teahan said. “I’m a three-point shooter. It’s not that I don’t do too much else, but that’s my key cornerstone I need to bring to the team. When I’m not knocking it down, I’m frustrated with myself, and I know my teammates have to get frustrated.” In his last six games, Teahan has made five of 23 threepointers (22 percent). That’s after making 42 percent of his threes (27 of 65) in his first 14 games. Recently, Teahan has been getting to the gym early to put up extra three-pointers with KU assistant coach Joe Dooley. “I’ll tell you, I feel like I’m going to start really making a lot of shots,” Teahan said. “I was talking to my dad (Mark) the other night. I was like, ‘Man, I can’t buy a bucket.’ He was like, ‘Well, you’re shooting straight up and down. It looks good. You’re holding your release and everything. And I think you’re going to start making them.’” Though it’s not well known, Teahan actually retooled his shot over the summer to try to become more consistent. During that time, he worked out at Prairie Life Fitness in Overland Park with Dustin Lewis —a longtime basketball instructor and former high school coach in Palm Desert, Calif. “He was like, ‘Hey, you have a good shot, but you’re kind of a streaky shooter,’ which was kind of the truth,” Teahan said. “I would go through times where I’d make a bunch in a row, then there’d be times I’d miss four or five in a row. Which, as a good shooter, you shouldn’t miss that many in a row when you’re just shooting (in a gym).” Lewis had noticed that Teahan was shooting mostly in front of his face. When that happens, Teahan says the tendency is for a right-handed shooter’s follow-through arm to go out to the right, which results in different release points and can cause a shot to miss short, long, left or right. Teahan altered his approach, starting his hands over to the right a bit more so that his release is straight up and down. The hope is that it will create a more consistent release point, meaning he might miss threes short or long, but he shouldn’t miss them left or right. Teahan, who said he can recall every shot he takes after a game, said only two of his five shots against A&M felt like they might be short coming off his hand. “I’m telling you, when I’ve been shooting the ball, they’ve been feeling good,” Teahan said. “I’ll be sitting there shooting it, and I’ll just be like, ‘It’s going in.’ When I let it go, I feel good. Most of them felt great (Monday night). “But, you know what, I’ve got to start making them. It’s the bottom line.”

FSHS, LHS ready for Firebird Classic By Benton Smith

When the Firebird Classic tips off today at Free State High, the girls basketball teams entering with the best records might be considered the favorites to win it. But that doesn’t necessarily mean they will turn out to be the teams playing for a championship come Saturday afternoon. At least that’s the theory being posed by FSHS coach Bryan Duncan, who said the “favorites on paper” to win the classic are probably Wichita Bishop Carroll (8-2), Topeka Washburn Rural (73) and his Firebirds (6-3). “But, you know, I’ve seen some strange things happen in these tournaments,” Duncan said. “A couple of teams in the field don’t have a real

CLASSIC COVERAGE Q Get score updates from Lawrence and Free State’s games on Twitter: @LJWpreps strong record but have played a very strong schedule, including Lawrence High.” The Lions (4-5) return to the tournament field this season, and coach Nick Wood said he and his players are looking forward to the challenge of opening against one of the favorites, Washburn Rural, at 8:15 tonight. Wood said the game should let LHS find out exactly where it stands about midway through the season. “Are we ready to start competing against really good teams,” he asked, “or do

we still have a lot of work to do?” Free State, meanwhile, opens with Blue Valley West (1-9) at 6:30 tonight. FSHS has been idle since its Jan. 17 home victory over Emporia, and Duncan wants his team’s return to the court to show off the players’ aggressiveness on offense and defense. “We feel like we’ve got to set the tone for the whole weekend in that first quarter of the first game,” Duncan said. If Free State is able to do that, it will help the Firebirds accomplish their goal, which Duncan said is to win the tournament. According to the coach, the Firebirds’ past few practices have been excellent as seniors Jackie Garcia and Lynn Robinson, juniors Kennedy Kirkpatrick, Ab-

bey and Chelsea Casady and A’Liyah Rogers and sophomore Scout Wiebe prepare for their three-day stretch of home games. FSHS took second place last year as a young team, and Duncan said they want to win the classic this season. “I think the kids are really primed and ready to go,” Duncan said. The Lions, too, are feeling good about where they’re at entering the tournament. LHS won its previous two games and Wood said the girls — seniors Christina Haswood, Bri Anglin and Mutiyat Hameed; juniors Monica Howard, Anna Wright, Bri Anderson, Emma Kelly and Kylie Seaman; sophomore Kionna Coleman and freshman Marissa Pope — have played well in their

KANSAS UNIVERSITY FORWARD AISHAH SUTHERLAND (11) FIGHTS FOR A REBOUND with Christine Hyde (5) and Shauntal Nobles during Kansas’ game against Texas Tech on Wednesday at Allen Fieldhouse.

KU women “

I thought we got off to a good start finally at home. ... I thought CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1B we were really, really good early. We had good the Big 12. The 34 points were rhythm and defensively the most scored by a Big 12 we were tough.” women’s basketball player in a single game this season. KU’s second victory this year over a ranked opponent marked the first time since the 2008-09 season that the Jayhawks had achieved such a feat. “It feels awesome,” Davis said of her 34 points. “In conference play, against a ranked opponent, that’s when it matters to me most.” One of the more impressive parts about Davis’ night was the fact that all of her points came off of field goals. Davis, who averages nearly six trips to the free throw line per game, shot — and missed — just one free throw on Wednesday. Henrickson said seeing that kind of point total with just one trip to the free throw line was unusual.

— Kansas University coach Bonnie Henrickson “There’s a thing in the NBA, with high volume scorers, that says for every three points a guy scores, there’s a free throw,” Henrickson said. “That’s the ratio. So for her to have 34 points and none from the free throw line, that’s amazing.” Davis now has scored more than 30 points in a game seven times in her KU career. Wednesday’s total was four off of her careerhigh of 38, which she recorded against Duquesne in March of 2011. While Wednesday’s victory came largely because of Davis’ big night, both

Henrickson and her players seemed more pleased, after the game, with the fact that they finally played well against a conference opponent at home. Despite running out to a 5-2 start in league play and sitting in second place, both of KU’s conference losses came at Allen Fieldhouse. “I thought we got off to a good start finally at home,” Henrickson said. “We talked about that, how we’ve played with a great sense of urgency on the road and built leads and haven’t done that at home. I thought we were really, really good early. We had good rhythm and defensively we were tough.” KU jumped out to a 16-4 lead but saw the margin trimmed to one with 2:37 to play in the first half. “Really where they made their run was in transition, and we got caught standing and watching,” Henrickson said. KU (16-3 overall, 5-2 Big 12) responded to Texas Tech’s run with a 6-0 spurt


Team effort propels Seabury boys to 60-43 victory over Pembroke Hill J-W Staff Reports

Seabury boys 60 Pembroke Hill 43 KANSAS CITY, MO. — With a change in philosophy, Seabury Academy’s boys basketball team won at Pembroke Hill, 60-43, Wednesday night. Seahawks coach Ashley Battles said the team did some soul-searching after a couple of rough outings and the players responded with a different approach in the road win. “We’re looking for our shot, not my shot,” the coach said.

Instead of trying to beat teams by themselves, Battles explained, the Seahawks (37) worked as a team. Thomas Diaz led Seabury with 22 points and Georgi Funtarov scored 20. Part of what made the team’s approach different, though, was Khadre Lane. He finished with six points, but Battles said the sophomore was “by far” the Seahawks’ best player against Pembroke. The coach said Lane got the ball to the right people at the right time. At 7 p.m. Friday, Seabury (3-7) will play at the Univer-

sity Academy tournament in Kansas City, Mo. Seabury 16 14 16 14 — 60 Pembroke Hill 11 6 16 10 — 43 Seabury scoring: Marcus Allen 2, Thomas Diaz 22, Georgi Funtarov 20, Garrett Gillett 8, Khadre Lane 6, Aaron Still-Lock 2.

Pembroke Hill girls 57, Seabury 23 KANSAS CITY, MO. — Alexa Gaumer scored 14 points, and Courtney Hoag had six points and seven rebounds, but the Seahawks fell to Pembroke Hill. Seabury (4-2) will play Wichita Defenders Homeschool on Friday in the University Academy Tournament in Kansas City, Mo.

past three outings. The coach said the Lions hope to give WRHS a competitive game and see what happens. “If we go out and lay an egg, it’s going to be disappointing,” Wood said. The Firebird Classic, the coach added, could serve as a turning point for the Lions. “We’ve had our ups and downs for sure,” Wood said, “and if we could somehow find a way to be really competitive this weekend and have consistency all three games, that would be a really good sign for the rest of the season.” In other first-round games today, Bishop Carroll (8-2) plays Junction City (0-10) at 3 p.m. and Leavenworth (45) plays Kansas City, Kan., Sumner Academy (4-7) at 4:45 p.m.

to close the first half and an 8-0 run to open the second. That effectively ended the game. “We have a great team this year,” said senior Aishah Sutherland, the only other Jayhawk to score in double digits, with 10. “And we are ready to beat any ranked team that comes to us.” KU will face its toughest test of the season on Saturday, when the Jayhawks travel to Waco, Texas, to take on No. 1 Baylor and AllAmerican center Brittney Griner “We just have to prepare to get around Brittney Griner,” Sutherland said. “They have her and a good guard (sophomore Odyssey Sims) and we have to be able to space them out.” Texas Tech (14-5, 2-5) was without leading scorer and rebounder Kierra Mallard, who missed the game because of injury, and KU was without freshman Donielle Breaux, who Henrickson said quit the team prior to last week’s game at Oklahoma State.


for the first time since 2000, when Marian Washington’s team lost to Vanderbilt, 7169, in Ruston, La. It all starts with Goodrich and her healthy wheels. She knows how to get to the lane and needs such small openings to fire passes off the deck and on the money to cutters and high and soft to Davis. Goodrich is the pool player who shakes the opponent’s confidence by seeing shots nobody else sees, only it’s passes she sees. This year she sees shots for herself too and makes them often enough to force the defense to respect her as a scorer. Davis catches everything and so routinely puts a soft shot off the glass for an easy bucket that when she missed shots early Wednesday it seemed as if it just wasn’t going to be her night. She only made it to the freethrow line for one shot, a miss, and she scored 34 points. Goodrich to Davis is the Jayhawks’ go-to play the way Todd Reesing to Kerry Meier was during the recent glory days of Kansas football. If that route is covered, Angel has a born knack for reading defenses and the minds of her receivers. She can sense when the defense is on its way to collapsing on Davis and feels that the Dezmon Briscoe of the team, Sutherland, is about to break free. Defensively, Goodrich can apply pressure aggressively, knowing if she gets taken on the dribble Sutherland will be salivating in anticipation of emphatically swatting a shot. In the past, Bonnie Ball had a tendency to come off too scripted, the barrage of X’s and O’s paralyzing the brain and handcuffing the creativity. This team has a different feel. “I don’t think as much,” Sutherland said. “Your freshman year, you think the most. It gets easier sophomore year. You should be good junior year, but this year I don’t think. I just do.” The perfect mindset for dancing.

Cavaliers 91, Knicks 81 CLEVELAND — Anderson Varejao had 16 rebounds, a powerful dunk down the stretch and outhustled New York’s big men as the Cavaliers ended a four-game losing streak. New York lost for the seventh time in eight games. Antawn Jamison added 15 points for the Cavs, who won their ninth straight at home over New York. The Knicks haven’t won in Cleveland since 2006. Amare Stoudemire had 19 points and 14 rebounds for the sloppy Knicks, who had 23 turnovers — six in the fourth quarter. Carmelo Anthony scored 15 points — 14 more than he had on Tuesday night — but the All-Star had another poor shooting night, going 5 of 14.

Wizards 92, Bobcats 75 WASHINGTON — Nick Young scored 20 points, and Andray Blatche had 17 points and 10 rebounds to lead Washington over Charlotte in Randy Wittman’s first game as coach. Wittman took over for the fired Flip Saunders on Tuesday, and guided the team without the benefit of a practice.

Husband’s ‘arrangement’ just may not work for wife

Dear Frazzled: Your husband has a setup that works for him: free meals and visits with his wife, and none of the responsibilities. He has no reason to change it. You cannot make him behave the way you wish, so if

he wouldn’t do it. I was born with a birth defect caused either by a beating he gave her or her attempts to abort me. The defect was repaired at birth, but I carry a hideous scar as a constant reminder that someone wanted me dead. Worse, my biological mother lied to help my ex-husband gain custody of my daughters during our divorce, because she wanted me to suffer the loss of a child as she did. Meeting this woman was this arrangement works for the biggest mistake of my you, fine. Otherwise, we rec- life. Adopted children should ommend a legal separation be content with the parents until you figure out what is in your best interest. You don’t have to rush into divorce. One step at a time.

It’s probably never a good idea to call your audience a bunch of idiots. That’s the problem facing Liz Lemon (Tina Fey) on “30 Rock” (7 p.m., NBC), continuing a theme from last week. Faced with a boycott of her show and its network by gay people insulted by Tracy Jordan’s (Tracy Morgan) thoughtless taunts, Liz issues a nonapology apology. She blames the problem not on mean-spirited bias, but on Tracy’s idiocy. Not one to take this lying down, Tracy organizes a boycott of the network by viewers and ordinary citizens who consider themselves idiots, most notably actress Denise Richards (as herself), who has made a career of not seeming all that bright. This two-part episode makes sly references to actor Tracy Morgan’s real life anti-gay rant that made minor headlines last summer. It’s also an oblique way for the show’s writers to mock a TV audience that’s not exactly turning out in significant numbers to watch their show. Perhaps they’re making a sly putdown of the folks who prefer “American Idol” and more formulaic CBS comedies to the Emmy-winning “30 Rock.” Last week, “The Big Bang Theory” had nearly four times as many total viewers as Fey’s show. Cable money expert Suze Orman gueststars on another episode of “30 Rock” (8 p.m.).

 Speaking of “American Idol” (7 p.m., Fox,), the series just isn’t the ratings steamroller it was last season. Its premiere audience was down 25 percent from 2011. Last Thursday, “The Big Bang Theory” had a slightly larger 18-49 yearold audience than the first half hour of “Idol.”

 JB Smoove hosts “Russell Simmons Presents The Ruckus” (9 p.m. and 9:30 p.m., Comedy Central,), a six-part standup showcase featuring a short introduction followed by four brief routines from comics both emerging and established.

 A more analytical approach to joke telling follows on “Inside Comedy” (10 p.m., Showtime). Veteran comic David Steinberg will host 10 half-hour interviews with some of the world’s most acclaimed comics, including Chris Rock, Ellen DeGeneres and Jerry Seinfeld, as well as veteran funnymen Mel Brooks, Don Rickles and Jonathan Winters.

 Airing not long after Paula Deen announced her diabetes, “Fat Chef” (9 p.m., Food) discusses the battles with obesity faced by kitchen professionals and offers advice from diet and fitness experts.

Tonight’s Other Highlights

Four men contend with superpowers in the 2006 fantasy “The Covenant” (7 p.m., CW).

A rocket scientist needs to relocate a mystery woman on “The Finder” (8 p.m., Fox).

A gambler becomes a murder defendant on “The Firm” (9 p.m., NBC).

The guys suddenly discover their relative poverty on “Unsupervised” (9:30 p.m., FX). Cult Choice

 When folks recall John Goodman’s remarkable career, they’ll probably overlook his starring role in the 1994 cartoon adaptation of “The Flintstones” (6 p.m., ABC Family). Elizabeth Taylor also stars.

Although my parents were not happy about my contacting her, I did it anyway. For five years, I thought we had a good relationship. But apparently, my birth mother blamed me for ruining her life. She purposefully got pregnant to trap my biological father into marriage, but

Dear Annie: Thirty years ago, my husband had a longterm affair. At the time, he was 30, and she was 16. He planned to leave me and our two young children, but he changed his mind and supposedly broke off the affair. Last year, I found out he had a daughter with this woman. The girl is now 17. Four months ago, I came home from a short trip to discover he had moved out because he wants to spend more time with his daughter. I told him I would welcome the girl into our family, but he said he no longer wants to be married. He refuses to let me meet his daughter, who now lives with him in his newly renovated home. Our own children want nothing to do with him, and he doesn’t understand why. He still stops by for breakfast and coffee most mornings and often comes over for lunch or in the evening to visit. Do you think he will eventually come back to me, or should I tell him to get lost so I can move on with my life? — Frazzled

OSU freshmen sink No. 2 Mizzou The Associated Press

Oklahoma State 79, No. 2 Missouri 72 STILLWATER, OKLA. — Keiton Page tried to explain to his Oklahoma State teammates the sensation of fans rushing the Gallagher-Iba Arena court to celebrate a big upset. With freshman swingman Le’Bryan Nash flashing the brilliance that made him a McDonald’s All-American, they got to experience it for themselves. Nash scored a career-high 27 points, Brian Williams added a career-best 22 and Oklahoma State knocked off Missouri on Wednesday night, handing the Tigers their second loss of the season. “Le’Bryan played at a very high speed tonight, a very high gear. All of his moves were a little bit more explosive,” Cowboys coach Travis Ford said. Nash scored 13 points during a 17-4 burst that sent the Cowboys (10-10, 3-4 Big 12) into the lead in the final 4 minutes and the Tigers didn’t have a response. Nash hit a jumper and a 3-pointer to get it going, then nailed another 3 from the left side to give the Cowboys a 65-64 lead with 3:23 to play. He connected on another 29 seconds later and ran to the opposite end of the court when Missouri (18-2, 5-2) called timeout to encourage a student section that was already hopping up and down to bring it on. When the clock hit zero, the students rushed the court and huddled around Oklahoma State’s players at midcourt. Earlier in the week, Page fielded questions from his younger teammates about his experiences from an upset of top-ranked Kansas two seasons ago, hoping for a similar result. “A lot of them just wanted to know what it was like for the students to run on the floor,” Page said. “My answer’s a lot different for them. I’m 5-9. They can see, they can breathe when it happens.” Ricardo Ratliffe had 25 points and 12 rebounds to lead Missouri, which allowed the Cowboys to shoot a season-best 59 percent. They hadn’t surpassed 49 percent against an NCAA opponent all season. The first half marked the third-best shooting performance in a half this season for Oklahoma State, the Big 12’s worst shooting team at 41 percent, only to be outdone by a 62 percent mark after halftime.

No. 4 Ohio State 78, Penn State 54 COLUMBUS, OHIO — Jared Sullinger had 20 points and 13 rebounds, and Ohio State took advantage of Penn State’s slow start. The Buckeyes (18-3, 6-2 Big Ten) won their third in a row and fifth in six games while tuning up for Sunday’s big home showdown with No. 20 Michigan. The Wolverines, Ohio State and Michigan State came into the week tied for the top spot in the Big Ten. The Nittany Lions paid tribute to Joe Paterno by wearing black bands on their jerseys. Paterno, Penn State’s football coach for 46 years and the winner of a major-college record 409 games, died Sunday at age 85. A public viewing and funeral was held earlier on Wednesday. William Buford added 15 points and Aaron Craft had 11 — all in the first half — as the Buckeyes built a lopsided lead. Big Ten scoring leader Tim Frazier had 16 points for Penn State (10-12, 2-7), which has lost its last 17 meetings with Ohio State.

No. 18 Mississippi State 76, LSU 71 STARKVILLE, MISS. — Arnett Moultrie scored 28 points and grabbed 12 rebounds for his 12th double-double of the season and Mississippi State held off a late LSU charge. Moultrie had 19 points in the second half as the Bulldogs built on a 32-31 halftime lead. The 6-foot-11 junior made 10 of 18 shots from the field and grabbed six offensive rebounds. Jalen Steele scored 15 points — hitting 3 of 4 from 3-point range — and Rodney Hood added 13 for Mississippi State (17-4, 4-2 Southeastern Conference), which outrebounded LSU 46-26.
