Civil rights group criticizes Kobach

City utility fee draws ire


Secretary of state calls center ‘left-wing smear organization’ Editors note: Hearings on House Bill 2067, which will require photo ID to vote, will be held at 9 a.m. Monday and Wednesday before the House Elections Committee. By Scott Rothschild

TOPEKA — As Secretary of State Kris Kobach tries to put in place more rules before a Kansan can vote, his associations are being highlighted by critics of his effort. The Southern Poverty Law Center earlier this month released a report focusing on Kobach’s legal and advocacy work to pass measures in cities and states that Kobach says are designed to combat illegal immigration. But the law center, a nonprofit civil rights group based in Birmingham, Ala., says his proposals are misguided, have led to expensive legal challenges and have stirred up racial tensions. “Behind all of this stands one man: Kris Kobach, a forKobach mer Kansas City law professor who was just elected Kansas secretary of state,” the report says. Kobach has been legal counsel to the Immigration Reform Law Institute, which is the legal arm of the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR). The Southern Poverty Law Center says FAIR is a racist organization. The center’s report on Kobach describes the Republican as a political opportunist, comparing him to the character of Please see KOBACH, page 2A

KELLY ELSTEN HAS BEEN ARGUING WITH THE CITY over late fees on her utility bill. She was charged more than $40 in late fees over the last three years without realizing it. The city’s utility bills don’t have a charge that says late fee; instead, it is called an “adjustment.” Plus, she says her payments haven’t been late. Elsten is pictured in her home with her son Jack, 6.

Resident ‘livid’ over ‘adjustment’ charge By Chad Lawhorn

Kelly Elsten thinks there’s something odd with the city utility bills she and other Lawrence residents pay. And she thinks she’s found out about it the hard way. By at least one measurement, she’s correct. After asked by the

Journal-World, the city’s utility billing division determined that about 30 percent of all Lawrence utility bills have a late fee attached to them. That is more than two to three times higher than several other utilities. Ed Mullins, who oversees the utility billing operations as the city’s director of finance, said

Structure moving a specialized trade By Sara Shepherd

The rickety barn, faded red and splintered with age, survived the hours-long process of being lifted from its foundation and plopped atop a flatbed tractor trailer. Now, the truck’s engine grumbles as it creeps across the lot, barn in tow. John Earnshaw walks backward in front of the truck like an airport worker taxiing a plane. Suddenly, the barn tips sharply to the right. Then left. Then farther to the right. Earnshaw’s arms fly up, both fists clenched — HOH! The business of house moving takes patience, precision and practice. The fundamental process may be thousands of years old, but picking up and moving entire, multiton structures remains a feat tackled only by a small number of specialized professionals. Earnshaw, who owns Lenexabased, is no stranger to carting unwieldy cargo through precarious situations around Lawrence and the surrounding area. While he does take the oscillating barn seriously, Earnshaw can’t help but chuckle a little at onlookers’ gasps. In more than three decades of moving houses, he’s seen it before. “It was rocking like a rocking chair, wasn’t it?” he said, smiling once the

‘Adjustment’ charge called misleading “

‘A late fee is a late fee’ Elsten wasn’t quite sure what she thought the word “adjustment” meant on her city utility bill. After all, the bill is for water, sewer and trash service. That trifecta probably isn’t an exact science. The water part involves reading a meter that spins around like an antique clock, and the sewer and trash, well, nobody wants to spend time thinking about sewer and trash. But in October, Elsten’s city utility bill was messed up like bills sometimes get. It was showing an amount that looked too high, so she called the city.

— Ed Mullins, who oversees the utility billing operations as the city’s director of finance ment in a timely manner. Elsten admits that she designed her bill-paying strategy to have the money taken out of her account on the actual due date, but she contends she always gave the bank at least four business days prior to the due date to complete the transaction. The bank agrees with that assertion. Because of a technical glitch that has since been corrected, US Bank was creating an actual paper check to send to the city each month. The check would be dated to be cashed on the bill’s due date, but the bank insists it was sent four business days in advance. The U.S. Postal Service estimates the average delivery time for first-class mail to be one to three business days. The city, though, says it simply wasn’t getting the check by the due date. “There’s no way for us to verify when that check was sent,” Mullins said. “We just know when we got it, and it wasn’t by the due date.” US Bank uses an out-ofstate contractor to process and mail the checks. The company mails in such volume that it uses a special category of f irst-class mail called “presorted first class.” The envelopes the checks are mailed in do not have a standard stamp, and also do not have a standard postmark showing when they were entered into the system. A spokeswoman at the Lawrence post office said it would be difficult to determine when the check was actually mailed. Terri Kaase, a manager for US Bank who oversees the online bill-paying system, said she’s confident the contractor was mailing the checks in a timely manner. She was seeking written verification of that at press time, but she said the company does thousands upon thousands of checks and that a problem with late mailings would have been spotted quickly. “For the most part, the number of complaints we get of this nature are few and far between,” Kaase said.

$187,000 in late fees Even if Elsten’s check is the one rare check that happens to get lost in the system, that doesn’t explain why the percentage of Lawrence bills with a late fee appears to be significantly higher than several other utilities. Elsten has her theory about that, too. She thinks the city’s utility billing staff gets swamped with checks near the due date and just does not get them entered into the system in a timely manner. Mullins flatly disagrees with that. He said his staff processes checks the day it receives them. He said checks sent from these bill-paying systems often are more difficult to process because they don’t come with a return bill stub, and often the account number on the check is not entirely accurate. That means the staff has to

look the account up by name, but Mullins said the city wouldn’t use that as a reason to levy a late fee. “If for some reason we wouldn’t get to it until the next day, we would trick the computer to make it think we were entering it on its due date,” Mullins said. Elsten even has wondered whether the city has a financial incentive to keep the latefee totals high. Mullins said that’s not the case either. In 2010, the city collected $187,947 in late fees through its utility operations. “I realize that $187,000 is still a good amount of money, but it is nothing to run a utility on,” Mullins said. The city collects about $30 million in fees through its utility each year. He said the city from a cash flow management standpoint has a much greater incentive to get the money that is due in a timely manner than it does to collect a relatively small amount in late fees. “We would be much happier if everybody paid their bill on time than having 30 percent not paying it on time,” Mullins said. In fact, Mullins said the high numbers have him wondering whether the city is providing enough of a disincentive for people to pay their bill late. The city currently charges a 2 percent late fee. That means on a $40 bill, the late fee will be 80 cents. That penalty is lower than in some cities. Manhattan, which deals with a similar college population and has only 10 percent of its bills with late fees, charges a flat $25 penalty for being late. “Maybe our 2 percent is not enough to get people to pay on time,” Mullins said. That won’t be the answer Elsten wants to hear. She’s been made financially whole from all this — the bank credited her account about $43 to cover the three years worth of late fees — but she still thinks the city has problems with its billing system. “I just think it is misleading,” Elsten said. “They’re not telling you that it is late. They are telling you that it is an adjustment, and that could be anything. But the big thing is, I think there are a lot of them that aren’t late.” — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362. Follow him at

Train crash kills at least 10, injures 33 A head-on train crash in eastern Germany on Saturday killed 10 people and injured at least 33 others, eight of them severely, local firefighters said, and police feared the death toll could rise. A passenger and a cargo train crashed head-on near Hordorf village, close to Saxony-Anhalt’s state capital Magdeburg, and several cars of the train carrying some 45 passengers derailed and overturned, a spokesman for the district’s firefighters said. He declined to be named in line with department policy. Rescue operations were still under way, and police had no immediate information as to what could have caused the accident late Saturday evening, regional police spokesman Frank Kuessner said.

Girl Scout Brownies get dolled up for event with Over the Rainbow Doll Club

Lectures to discuss new picks for Mount Rushmore


Airport bomber ID’d as Caucasus man The suicide bomber who killed 35 people at Moscow’s busiest airport was deliberately targeting foreigners, investigators said Saturday, which would mark an ominous new tactic by separatist militants in southern Russia if he was recruited by an Islamist terror cell. Federal investigators know the identity of the bomber, a 20-year-old native of the volatile Caucausus region, where Islamist insurgents have been battling for years for a breakaway state. But the country’s top investigative body stopped short of naming him, fearing that it would compromise ongoing attempts to identify and arrest the masterminds of the Domodedovo Airport attack on Jan. 24. The blast also wounded 180 people.

Comcast takes over NBC Universal The nation’s largest cable TV company, Comcast Corp., took control of NBC Universal after the government shackled its behavior in the coming years to protect online video services such as Netflix and Hulu. The deal closed shortly before midnight EST on Friday. The takeover gave the cable-hookup company 51 percent control of NBC Universal, which owns the nation’s fourth-ranked broadcaster, NBC; the Universal Pictures movie studio and related theme parks; and cable channels including Bravo, E! and USA. The combination had raised fears that Comcast might abuse its control of NBC Universal to favor its most valuable customers: the 23 million who rely on it for cable TV service and the 17 million who pay for Internet connections. 4 | FLORIDA

Mom charged in slayings being treated The woman who authorities say killed her teenage daughter and son because she was fed up with them talking back and being mouthy did not appear in court Saturday because she was being treated at a hospital for an unknown condition. Authorities say Julie Powers Schenecker was taken to Tampa General Hospital shortly after midnight Saturday to be treated for a medical condition that existed before she was taken to jail. Hillsborough Sheriff’s deputies, who oversee jail inmates, said they could not reveal Schenecker’s medical condition, citing health care privacy laws. A jail spokesman said late Saturday that Schenecker was still at the hospital and that her first court appearance was pending. An arrest affidavit said Schenecker shot her son twice in the head in the family car “for talking back” as she drove him to soccer practice. The report said Schenecker then drove to their upscale home and shot her daughter in the face inside the home. 5 | WASHINGTON, D.C.

Dems: GOP has lost job focus Republicans won dozens of elections last fall after claiming Democrats had focused too little on creating jobs. Now GOP lawmakers stand accused of the same charge, using their new House majority to push to repeal the president’s health care law, restrict abortions and highlight other social issues important to their most conservative supporters. Republican leaders say they have a jobs agenda, kicked off by their attempt to unravel what they call the Democrats’ “jobs-killing” health overhaul. Democrats scoff at this notion, and they’re hounding Republicans to show how they can put more people to work.

Collection of amphibians, reptiles is world’s 4th largest First specimen gathered over 130 years ago By Brenna Hawley

Tucked inside one of the oldest buildings on Kansas University’s campus lies something that is even older than the walls that surround it. Coiled in a jar filled with an ethanol solution is a Thamnophis elegans, a snake collected by a KU researcher in New Mexico. That winding mass of scales is almost 131 years old — it was collected in 1880. Dyche Hall houses the KU Biodiversity Institute, and with that the fourth-largest collection of amphibians and reptiles in the world. Any herpetologist who is researching amphibians and reptiles is likely to pass through the doors of the Natural History Museum and visit the collection,

which has about 330,000 specimens. Having that many specimens, though, can prove a problem. Thousands of jars are filled with roughly 9,000 gallons of a 70 percent ethanol solution, which preserves the amphibians and reptiles. Those jars are arranged by family, and misplacing a single jar can result in losing it for years. “It’s sort of like the last scene

A former Dole Institute director will return to the institute beginning today to deliver a series of lectures outlining his version of a 20th-century Mount Rushmore. Richard Norton Smith has chosen four new presidents for inclusion on the mountain: Woodrow Wilson, Ronald Reagan, Franklin D. Roosevelt and Dwight D. Eisenhower. Smith, a presidential scholar, left the Dole Institute to serve as president of the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum in Springfield, Ill. Today, he is a scholar-in-residence at George Mason University. The series begins with a discussion of Reagan today with Bill Lacy, current Dole Institute director who also worked as a Reagan political director. Without wanting to give away too much of his planned presentations in a recent interview, Smith talked about his four selections. “Other people would make their own choices, and that’s part of the appeal to this,” he said, adding that he hoped his presentations would involve lively discussions with audience participation as well. He qualified his selections by saying that he tried to pick the four presidents of the century with the greatest historical significance.

Pious Hypocrisies: Mark Twain, the Philippines, and America’s Christian Mission SUSAN HARRIS February 9, 2011 | 7:30 p.m. Alderson Auditorium, Kansas Union Mark Twain called it “pious hypocrisies.” President McKinley called it bringing “Christianity and civilization” to backward peoples. Susan Harris will explore the debates over the U.S. annexation of the Philippines through the voices of Twain, McKinley, and other Americans who fought over America’s duty to others at the moment when the U.S. became a world power in 1899. Dr. Harris is the Hall Distinguished Professor of American Literature and Culture at the University of Kansas. Supported by the Friends of the Hall Center This series is co-sponsored by Kansas Public Radio.

Ooten said several structures may have been damaged but she didn’t have immediate confirmation on how many. Footage from news helicopters showed at least one mobile home, a house and another structure engulfed in flames.

Collection of amphibians, reptiles at KU is 4th largest in world




they don’t get misplaced. If they get misplaced one shelf over, we’ll never find it.” Brown spends about three months per year traveling to add to this collection, which is kept at a constant temperature of 65 degrees. He goes most often to the Philippines, a country with severe conservation threat but high biodiversity. Brown, his collaborators and his students have added about 16,000 specimens to the collection in five years, but that doesn’t come without a price. In order to study the specimens, they must kill them, which is done with a barbiturate solution. Brown knows this is unpopular with some, and says he’s sympathetic to those who think people should never kill an animal. “What we’re trying to do is preserve species for the future history of the earth and for future generations of people as well, so when a couple of individuals have to die so that a whole species can be recognized, it’s a trade-off I’m willing to make,” he said. The value of the collection was recently discovered when a few jars of toads were examined. The mountain river toads were collected about 30 years ago and then placed in the collection. Since the collection, the species has gone extinct because of a fungus. A researcher recently named five new species within those jars post-extinction, species the world never would have known existed if the specimens hadn’t been collected. Discoveries like that are being added to the collection every month, and Brown said he has about 60 species he found in the Philippines yet to name. He said he can walk around the

that the country was passing on to its children and grandchildren. That’s certainly a relevant topic today, Smith said. “Probably the most controversial of my choices would be Woodrow Wilson,” he said. Even so, he said, it’s hard to argue that Wilson — who pushed for international collaboration with his League of Nations idea that ultimately failed — was not one of the most influential presidents of the century. When it comes to foreign relations, most presidents have either adopted a Wilsonian or non-Wilsonian approach. He called Franklin D. Roosevelt the man who invented the modern presidency. “You could say that of Teddy Roosevelt, but he’s already on Mount Rushmore,” Smith said. Both Franklin Roosevelt and Reagan transformed the modern presidency, he said, in addition to their own political parties. They’re both extremely polarizing figures, but yet both enjoyed huge popularity during their terms, he said. Lacy said he was looking forward to Smith’s presentations, and that he anticipated the program would be wellreceived. “I think there is a fascination with our presidents,” Lacy said. “Whether they were successful or flawed, there is a tremendous amount of interest in them.” — Higher education reporter Andy Hyland can be reached at 832-6388.

RAFE BROWN, CURATOR FOR HERPETOLOGY AT THE KU BIODIVERSITY INSTITUTE, holds an iguana that he and others recently discovered in the Philippines. It is now part of the institute’s collection.

Kansas twins share sex abuse story on ‘Oprah’ WICHITA — The 19-year-old Kansas twins told their own story of sexual abuse at the hands of their father and two brothers to a local newspaper in hopes of inspiring others to report such crimes. Now, Kellie and Kathie Henderson will retell their story at a taping in Chicago with Oprah Winfrey and her 7 million viewers on her daytime television show. The show is expected to air sometime next month. The Hendersons have said they revealed their lives as sex abuse victims in a three-part series in The Wichita Eagle last month with the hope of inspiring others to report abuse. State regulators say they have received several reports of sexual abuse because of the story series. “While we haven’t had a big influx of reports, I would say that we had a few that specifically said when they reported suspected sexual abuse that they were reporting because of having read the article,” said Jean Hogan, director of the Wichita regional office of the Kansas Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services. “If even one child is protected as a result, it is positive.”

Sheriff seeks help with IDs of train crash victims EL DORADO — Butler County’s sheriff is asking for the public’s help in identifying two people who were killed in a car-train collision northeast of El Dorado Lake in southeast Kansas. Sheriff Craig Murphy says two people were killed at 4:45 p.m. Friday when their vehicle was hit by a train and dragged

about a mile. The car was on fire when emergency responders arrived. The bodies have been taken to the Sedgwick County Forensic Science Center. The Sheriff’s Office told The Associated Press on Saturday afternoon that the two victims still had not been identified.

HOW TO BUY LIKE A SELLER If you’re in the market to buy a home, take a counter-intuitive tip and imagine the day you’ll be selling it. That’s right - whether you’re a first time buyer, or relocating, this home probably won’t be your last, so look for features that will pay off when the day comes to move again. North, south, east or west, the biggest amenity the next buyer will look for is central air conditioning. In the Deep South, over 90% of buyers rank central air as critically important, and three-quarters of buyers everywhere else put it high on their list. Another often-overlooked feature is storage. Over half of buyers desire a two-car garage and a walk-in closet for the master

bedroom. Ample closets and storage space just can’t be stressed enough. If at all possible, avoid costly upgrades and offer incentive down the road by purchasing an energy efficient home with newer windows, pervasive insulation, and Energy Star appliances. If the home is already wired for cable, satellite, and high-speed internet, so much the better. Finally, it’s still about location, location, location. It’s the one thing you can’t change about the home you buy, so look for good schools (even if you don’t have children) and proximity to shopping and recreation. Just ask your agent about the most popular features in your area and take heed!

Moving structures a specialized trade CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1A

Earnshaw’s father, Jim Earnshaw, got into the housemoving business in 1971. Market conditions had shifted, and Earnshaw Feed and Grain Company, which his father, Bob Earnshaw Sr. started, was no longer viable. “My dad had to figure out a new business to get into,” John Earnshaw said. House moving was a niche trade that people needed but few provided. Living up to the Earnshaw legacy is a “curse as well as a blessing,” Earnshaw said. He inherited a hard-working and entrepreneurial spirit — and a lot of pressure to succeed. That can be hard to shoulder in any business, but especially in a high-stakes trade like house moving. ●●●

Among raising a 10-, 20- or 30-ton structure off its foundation, loading it on dollies or a truck bed, driving through a web of rough terrain and public roads crisscrossed by power lines and low-clearance bridges — usually between midnight and 5 a.m. — and setting it down again, a lot can go wrong. Earnshaw said he’s been fortunate on projects he’s led. With the exception of a garage falling off a house, “we’ve never had anything happen to a house that we couldn’t fix.” Earnshaw has moved or lifted houses all over Douglas, Johnson, Wyandotte and Leavenworth counties, as well as the Missouri side of the state line. Jobs range from relocating a Shawnee Mission ranch house from encroaching development to a quiet culde-sac, to leveling a 100year-old Lawrence barn that engineers said was beyond repair. Moves have spanned a few blocks to more than 60 miles. In perhaps his highest-profile project, Earnshaw in 1992 contracted two sand barges, designed special drawbridge ramps for them and floated 79 houses down the Missouri River in 60 days. The project by several area cities and organizations — which aimed to transform military barracks into affordable inner-city housing — was, for various reasons, never realized. But working 10- to 12-hour days, seven days a week for two months, Earnshaw and his crew got the houses from Fort Leavenworth to Kansas City, Kan.

She said she plans to teach her children how to be energy efficient at a young age so they grow up and teach their children the same things. Everyone who attended the party received a goody bag to help jump-start the challenge, which included a compact fluorescent light bulb, insulation for power outlets, a calendar for keeping track of when heating and cooling f ilters were changed and information about the challenge. Risley encourages Lawrence residents to get an energy audit for their homes, work with their utility companies to reduce their energy use and attend Take Charge Challenge events, all actions that can help Lawrence win the challenge. The winning city will win $100,000 to help fund an efficiency project, money that comes from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

WORKING IN SYNC, JOHN EARNSHAW and and a partner pump the jacks beneath a barn to lift it enough that the truck can drive out from underneath it. After setting up slidesticks — a pair of steel beams positioned perpendicular to the ones the barn is resting on — the men will coat them with Ivory bar soap and slide the barn over its new foundation. The final step is lowering it, accomplished with jacks and cribbing blocks just like the lifting process. ●●●

While there are some technological advancements in equipment, house movers still rely on geometry and physics just as the ancient Egyptians did. “They moved things that were bigger or as big as we can move today,” said Don DeVooght of the International Association of Structural Movers. “They did it with whatever — manpower, horsepower, oxen, all kinds of different methods.” DeVooght, who has a moving business in Wisconsin, said his own grandfather moved a building back in the 1940s using horses and logs, “and it turned out fine.” Reasons to move a house vary. Housing and construction markets drive some moves. Sometimes the cost to build or buy a new house outweighs the cost of moving an existing one to a new property. Redevelopment also drives moves. For example, a nice home becomes less valuable when it’s suddenly cornered by a Walmart parking lot. Moving it to a desirable location can help preserve its value. Other times, customers move structures because they have sentimental or historic value. Finally, moving a house is a great way to recycle. “Every time you move a house, it’s not going to a land-

fill,” DeVooght said. “Somebody else is going to put it back to use.” Driven in part by the difficulty of obtaining permits from cities, counties and utility companies to move houses through their right-ofways, Earnshaw rarely moves houses anymore. He does primarily house lifting and foundation repair or reconstruction, improving existing basements or building basements beneath houses that don’t have them.

shows up with his prize check, Earnshaw said laughing, he hasn’t forgotten that he is a master in a specialized trade. Or that people will pay for it. “To stay in business and do the best you can, it’s not always easy,” he said. “But at the same time, I’m a realist and recognize that I do have a skill that’s often needed and underserved.” — Sara Shepherd, news editor at The Shawnee Dispatch, can be reached at 913962-3000, extension 111.


In 2001, doctors told Earnshaw he had cancer that had metastasized throughout his torso. He underwent surgery and chemotherapy, and didn’t work for a year. Now, Earnshaw has been cancer-free eight years and has become increasingly focused on social causes. He developed a website,, to promote sustainable farming, green construction and alternative energy. He’s working up to full-sleeve tattoos on both arms, featuring designs inspired by Latin-American revolutionary Ernesto “Che” Guevara. At 49, Earnshaw said, the competitive nature of being in business for himself isn’t as appealing as it used to be. Frankly, he’s tired of moving houses. But until Ed McMahon

Chaos engulfs Cairo as leader names successor By Hamza Hendawi

EGYPTIANS GESTURE AS THEY STAND atop an Egyptian army armored vehicle as they celebrate Saturday in downtown Cairo, Egypt.

Associated Press Writer

CAIRO — With protests raging, Egypt’s president named his intelligence chief as his first-ever vice president on Saturday, setting the stage for a successor as chaos engulfed the capital. Soldiers stood by — a few even joining the demonstrators — and the death toll from five days of anti-government fury rose sharply to 74. Saturday’s fast-moving developments across the north African nation marked a sharp turning point in President Hosni Mubarak’s threedecade rule of Egypt. Residents and shopkeepers in affluent neighborhoods boarded up their houses and stores against looters, who roamed the streets with knives and sticks, stealing what they could and destroying cars, windows and street signs. Gunfire rang out in some neighborhoods. Tanks and armored personnel carriers fanned out across the city of 18 million, guarding key government buildings, and major tourist and archaeological sites. Among those singled out for special protection was the Egyptian Museum, home to some of the country’s most treasured antiquities, and the Cabinet building. The military closed the pyramids on the outskirts of Cairo — Egypt’s premier tourist site. But soldiers made no moves

against protesters, even after a curfew came and went and the crowds swelled in the streets, demanding an end to Mubarak’s rule and no handoff to the son he had been grooming to succeed him. “This is the revolution of people of all walks of life,” read black graffiti scrolled on one army tank in Tahrir Square. “Mubarak, take your son and leave,” it said. Thousands of protesters defied the curfew for the second night, standing their ground in the main Tahrir Square in a resounding rejection of Mubarak’s attempt to hang onto power with promises of reform and a new government. Police protecting the Interior Ministry near the site opened fire at a funeral procession for a dead protester, possibly because it came too close to the force. Clashes broke out and at least two people were killed. A 43-year-old teacher, Rafaat Mubarak, said the

appointment of the president’s intelligence chief and longtime confidant, Omar Suleiman, as vice president did not satisfy the protesters. “This is all nonsense. They will not fool us anymore. We want the head of the snake,” he said in the Mediterranean port city of Alexandria. “If he is appointed by Mubarak, then he is just one more member of the gang. We are not speaking about a branch in a tree, we are talking about the roots.” The crackdown on protesters has drawn harsh criticism from the Obama administration and even a threat Friday to reduce a $1.5 billion foreign aid program if Washington’s most important Arab ally escalates the use of force. Thousands of passengers were stranded at Cairo’s airport as flights were canceled or delayed, leaving them unable to leave because of a government-imposed curfew. Several Arab nations, meanwhile, moved to evacu-

ate their citizens. The cancelations of flights and the arrival of several largely empty aircraft appeared to herald an ominous erosion of key tourism revenue. The protesters united in one overarching demand — Mubarak and his family must go. The movement is a culmination of years of simmering frustration over a government they see as corrupt, heavy-handed and neglectful of poverty.

Hawker Beechcraft taps Salina for training SALINA — Wichita-based Hawker Beechcraft has picked the Salina airport for a lightattack aircraft training program that could begin in late 2012. The Salina Journal reports the Salina Airport Authority has signed a deal with Hawker Beechcraft to use the airport to train pilots and maintenance workers for the firm’s AT-6 light attack aircraft. The U.S. Air Force plans to award a light-air support contract within the next six months. Airport Authority director Tim Rogers says the long runway, modern hangars and proximity to the Smoky Hill weapons range make it a good choice for the training program. Salina officials say the program could result in up to two dozen new pilot and maintenance jobs for the city.

Snow perspective The city’s sidewalk-shoveling ordinance sets a good goal, but it’s far from perfect.


now is a pain in the behind. Many Lawrence residents surely are being reminded of that this winter. It creates all the typical annoyances: treacherous roads, slips and falls, and the pigpen like environment it leaves behind once it melts. But here in Lawrence, sometimes the pain comes in the form of a ticket in the mail. A city ordinance requires property owners to remove snow and ice from public sidewalks that traverse their properties within 48 hours following the end of the snow or ice storm. For some in Lawrence, this ordinance has created a significant opportunity to complain. Some complain about the lack of fairness in property owners being required to maintain a public sidewalk. Others complain that the city is not issuing enough tickets. Still others complain that the city issued a ticket here but not there. It appears to us that residents have been giving a bit more attention to their sidewalks since the city began enforcing the ordinance last winter. The ordinance appears to have some value. But it certainly could benefit from some perspective too. Here are some points we think should be kept in mind: ● The system is imperfect. The system creates no exceptions from the 48-hour rule. That can create difficulties. To cite just one, there are about 4,000 people in Lawrence over the age of 75. There are about 55 people who have volunteered for a city program to shovel sidewalks for the elderly and disabled. ● Sidewalks and streets aren’t equal. There is a reason that the city doesn’t require property owners to be responsible for clearing the streets that are in front of their homes and businesses. Streets would be cleared in such a haphazard manner to drive even the most patient of motorists crazy. But for financial reasons, that is the system we use for sidewalks. That’s not to say that sidewalks are unimportant. But they aren’t as heavily used as streets, and they aren’t ever going to be cleaned as consistently as streets. ● Some property owners get a raw deal. Some properties have public sidewalks on them; others don’t. Some have sidewalks so close to the street that snow plows constantly cover them. The city won’t ticket you for that, but it is maddening. However, we also get that the city is plowing the snow — not vacuuming it — so the snow has to go somewhere. ● Priorities are fluid. We don’t believe the city would contend that it has shoveled every sidewalk it is responsible for during the 48hour period each and every time. That’s understandable. City crews are very busy during snow storms, and sometimes they’re doing work more important than shoveling a sidewalk. Sometimes, property owners are too. Certainly both groups could try to hire someone to do the job. But let’s face it, neither group is flush with money. Yes, government does have the advantage here. It won’t ticket itself, but then again, you don’t have to run for re-election. ● We’re not doing bad. There are about 40,000 housing units in Lawrence and several thousand more business addresses. Many of them have sidewalks. Last winter the city received about 800 sidewalk complaints and issued about 200 tickets. That’s quite a few, and probably could have been even higher. But in the grand scheme of things, our sidewalk shoveling woes are nowhere near an epidemic. This is a situation where a good idea is much more helpful than a simple complaint. If you have an idea for making this imperfect system better, let the city know. But if you must, get hot under the collar. Steam about the unfairness of it all over your morning coffee. But remember this: No matter how hot you get, it won’t melt the snow.

Tax reform should top federal agenda WASHINGTON — While I was out ill for six weeks in December and January, the world changed. Before that, the White House had badly misjudged the political climate. When I went to Ohio with Vice President Biden, he did his best to ignore the evidence of economic pain, giving a pep talk to skeptical factory workers and telling me and other reporters that he believed Democrats would retain their majorities in both the House and Senate. The election rout came as a shock to President Obama and his administration. But Obama took the lesson and acted promptly. The first step in moving back to the center was to liberate himself from his dependence on Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid and cut his own deal with Mitch McConnell, the Republican minority leader of the Senate. In return for a temporary extension of the Bush tax cuts, Obama got not only big pieces of his own economic agenda but approval of the arms treaty with Russia and the termination of “don’t ask, don’t tell.” Thus fortified, he began to repair the White House, giving it a distinctly Clintonian cast. He had already hired Jack Lew, a skilled negotiator, as his budget chief. He brought in my friend Bill Daley, a politically savvy operative with strong business and banking ties, as chief of staff, and Clinton administration veteran

Obama called this a “‘Sputnik moment,’ but

offered no such ambitious enterprise. The one I had hoped he would choose is the overhaul of the tax code, which could pay multiple dividends.”

Gene Sperling as his top economic adviser. Liberal Democrats fretted but the vibes from Washington to Wall Street were good. Then fate intervened. The Tucson massacre provided the kind of occasion when all of the American people turn to the president to express their horror and grief but also their determination to reach out to each other and recover. As Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton had done before him, Obama did not disappoint. His address to the memorial gathering reminded everyone why his voice had been cherished during the 2008 cam-

paign — and why they might want to keep it in the White House. Everything was cued up for the recovery process to climax at Tuesday’s State of the Union address. It played well with the public, with its invocations of bipartisanship and its bursts of economic optimism. But it lacked a centerpiece. Obama called this a “Sputnik moment,” but offered no such ambitious enterprise. The one I had hoped he would choose is the overhaul of the tax code, which could pay multiple dividends. I also hoped Obama would talk about closing special-interest loopholes, technically known as tax expenditures. Erskine Bowles and Alan Simpson, co-chairmen of the president’s debt commission, had spotlighted the remarkable fact that $1 trillion a year disappears from the Treasury because of these loopholes. Recovering those funds ought to be at the top of the economic agenda. Big chunks of them are embedded in two pots that have broad public support — the mortgage-interest deduction and the tax exclusion for employerprovided health insurance. But at least half of that $1 trillion is steered to favored special interests. Think what recovering $500 billion a year would mean. If you used half of it to reduce individual and corporate tax rates, as

Republicans would like, you would give a huge shot in the arm to economic recovery and job growth. If you used much of the rest to bolster education and alternative energy, and repair infrastructure, as Democrats wish, you could actually do those things without deepening the deficit. And you could even set aside $100 billion to reduce the national debt. What a great message that would send abroad — that the U.S. is serious about ending its economic tailspin. I wanted to hear Obama urge Paul Ryan, the new Republican chairman of the House Budget Committee whose intellectually ambitious ideas have enlisted bipartisan interest, to meet soon with Kent Conrad, the retiring Democratic chairman of the Senate Budget Committee who well knows the arcane recesses of the tax code. Together, those two could provide an agenda and a strong nudge to the respective tax-writing committees. And I have to believe the big freshman class of legislators would welcome the opportunity to do what no predecessors since another politically divided Congress, prompted by Ronald Reagan, James Baker and the late Dick Darman, and Democratic Sen. Bill Bradley, had done in 1986: clean up and simplify the tax code. — David Broder is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.

Obama unmoved by failures WASHINGTON — Disregard Barack Obama’s rhetorical cotton candy about aspiring to be transformative. He is just another practitioner of reactionary liberalism and champion of a government unchastened by its multiplying failures. The word “entitlements” was absent from his nearly 7,000-word State of the Union address — a $183 million speech that meandered for 61 minutes as the nation’s debt grew $3 million a minute. He exhorted listeners to “win the future” by remembering the past. On May 10, 1869, at Promontory Summit, in the Utah Territory, a golden spike was driven to celebrate the joining of the Union Pacific and Central Pacific railroads. In the 1960s, the United States sent men to the moon. Obama said: Today’s government should take more control of the nation’s resources so it can do innovative things akin to building the transcontinental railroad and exploring space. The nation heard: You should trust the government whose recent innovations include the ethanol debacle which, four days before the State of the Union, the government expanded. And you should surrender more resources to the government whose recent innovations include the wild proliferation of subprime mortgages. Obama spoke to a nation limping into a sixth year of declining housing prices (housing accounts for about one-quarter of households’ assets), with another 10 percent to 20 percent decline likely. With 5 million households at least two months delinquent on their mortgage payments and 5.5 million households with mortgages at least 20 percent larger than the value of their houses, this year probably will see more housing foreclosures than the 1 million in 2010, when new home sales hit a 47-year low.

Obama spoke to a “nation limping into a sixth year of declining housing prices … with another 10 percent to 20 percent decline likely.”

is indeed amazing what innovative government can accomplish. The day after Obama told the nation that the key to prosperity is creativity defined by this government and propelled by more government spending (“investment”), the Congressional Budget Office said this year’s budget gap is widening to $1.5 trillion, making the national debt 70 percent of GDP, up from 40 percent in 2008. But Michigan’s Levin brothers remain faithful to Obamanomics, which holds that prosperity is just around the corner — if government spends more on innovations it imagines. Sen. Carl Levin and Rep. Sander Levin have a combined 60 years of Capitol Hill tenure, and an innovation. Like most liberals’ new ideas, theirs is to make an old idea more expensive. The day of the CBO’s dark forecast, the Levins said the government should double the scope of its program to bribe people to buy a kind of car the government likes much more than do buyers of cars. The government already offers $7,500 tax incentives for people who buy electric cars such as the

getting 1 million such cars on America’s roads by 2015 cannot be met unless innovative government rigs the market. Introduced in 2008, the $7,500 bribe was limited to the first 250,000 cars. Under Obama’s stimulus, it was expanded to 200,000 per manufacturer. The Levins, uttering liberalism’s timeless rallying cry (“More!”) want it to cover 500,000 per manufacturer. The Levins’ applied liberalism is regressive because it conscripts all taxpayers into subsidizing a fortunate few: As Whoriskey reports, the subsidy would flow to “early adopters” of a new kind of car, and they “generally tend to be affluent.” It represents, among others, people who sell electricity and related products, and who want to sell electric cars. The coalition’s leaders include Carlos Ghosn, Nissan’s CEO, and Jeff Immelt, GE’s CEO and (simultaneously) chairman of Obama’s Council on Jobs and Competitiveness. Diamond says electric cars will help prevent America from being “hostage to one fuel source produced in the world’s unstable and often-hostile regions.” America’s two largest sources of imported oil are Canada and Mexico. Both Levins oppose tapping the large oil reserves in Alaska’s Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. The Levins’ innovation could cost $19 billion over 10 years, but if it does, says Sander, “it means that the program worked.” So, a program “works” if it pays people enough to get them to do something they otherwise would consider irrational — to buy something so overpriced it would fail in an unrigged market. If it “works,” the cry will be: “More!” — George Will is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.


From the Lawrence Daily World for Jan. 30, 1911: YEARS “Mrs. John, AGO Kesinger, living IN 1911 three miles southeast of town, was badly burned yesterday evening immediately after dark in trying to save some live stock from a barn which was in flames, says the Tonganoxie Mirror. John Kesinger, the husband, was away from home as a witness in a case being heard in Leavenworth, and Mrs. Kesinger had to do the chores. After finishing this task she discovered the west end of their large barn in flames. She at once went into the barn to release the animals and in doing so she got cut on her forehead and burned. The fine black team that has often been observed on the streets of Tonganoxie was lost in the fire. Some other live stock may be lost. All the grain, hay and implements in the barn went up in the flames.” — Compiled by Sarah St. John

LAWRENCE ALMANAC Through 7 p.m. Saturday.

Kan. GOP picks Tiahrt for key position TOPEKA — Kansas Republicans picked former U.S. Rep. Todd Tiahrt to fill a key party leadership job Saturday after a surprisingly spirited contest that suggested hard feelings still lingered from Tiahrt’s loss during last year’s bruising Senate primary. The GOP State Committee elected Tiahrt to a Tiahrt vacant seat on the Republican National Committee. Tiahrt represented the 4th Congressional District of south-central Kansas for 16 years, but chose not to seek reelection to run for the Senate. “I think I can have some influence at the national party level, and I’m probably the only former member of Congress who’s going to be there, so I have some unwritten credibility, just from my service,” Tiahrt said after the vote. Many Republicans thought his national contacts and visibility in conservative causes, such as his vocal opposition to abortion, made him a natural to represent Kansas on the RNC.

Blowout memorable for several reasons Tom Keegan

KU women make ‘progress,’ but lose By Matt Tait

MANHATTAN — Winning on the road in the Big 12 is hard enough without trying to do it with your leading scorer on the bench. That’s what the Kansas University women’s basketball team was forced to do Saturday at Bramlage Coliseum, where foul trouble and an off night from sophomore forward Carolyn Davis helped Kansas State top KU, 65-60. “We just came up a couple possessions short,” KU coach Bonnie Henrickson said. “In a onepossession game, that’s just gutwrenching.

Davis was averaging 18 points, eight rebounds and 30 minutes per game. Saturday, thanks to two fouls in the first five minutes, she was limited to nine points and one rebound in just 19 minutes. After picking up her second foul at the 4:47 mark of the first half, Davis went to the bench and did not play again until the second half. Davis’ absence, along with redhot three-point shooting by the Wildcats, allowed Kansas State to build a 34-26 halftime lead. The halftime deficit would’ve been worse had it not been for Monica Engelman’s three-pointer at the buzzer.

FSHS girls second at own tournament By Ben Ward Journal-World Sports Writer

Finishing as the runner-up doesn’t garner any trophies or accolades, but Free State High’s girls basketball team handled it in stride. The Firebirds fell, 60-45, to Blue Valley in the final game of the Firebird Winter Classic on Saturday at FSHS, but had few complaints with their tournament run. “We don’t want to call it a great weekend, because we didn’t win the thing,” coach Bryan Duncan said. “But it was a very good weekend.” With five players at or around 6-feet tall, the Tigers (9-3) were simply too much for the Firebirds to handle. The physical, experienced Tigers gathered nine offensive

rebounds, many leading to putback layups or earning them trips to the free-throw line. Both teams shot the ball at an 18-for-43 clip, but the Tigers continued to draw fouls and get to the line, where they were 20-of-28. By comparison, the Firebirds were only 4-of-6 from the stripe. While their teammates got good looks at the basket inside, Bailey Geiman and Rylie Hanson were able to knock down perimeter jumpers, seemingly whenever the Firebirds threatened to make a run. “They present a really difficult challenge for everybody,” Duncan said. “They’re big so they can score inside, but if you doubledown on them too much, they also have people who can shoot the ball.” Please see FSHS GIRLS, page 3B

NBA Mayo blames ’energy drink’

SAN DIEGO — Phil Mickelson found the trick to playing the revamped South Course at Torrey Pines and left himself one round away from winning on a course that once felt like home. Going against his nature, Mickelson played it safe again Saturday and wound up with a 4-under 68 to share the lead with Bill Haas going into the final round of the Farmers Insurance Open. Haas missed a four-foot par putt on the last hole for a 71.

MEMPHIS, TENN. — Memphis Grizzlies guard O.J.

is her primary look and secondary look, but that happens, and we’ll learn from it, and she’ll learn from it.” Though she admitted to being frustrated by foul trouble, Davis said she focused on remaining mentally strong. “It was tough to sit that long,” Davis said. “I tried to stay in the game, and I was cheering my teammates on and coaching (them). But it was tough. I was hard on myself at first, but I didn’t want to take myself out of the game, so I tried not to think about it too much.” Kansas State opened by hitting three of four three-point attempts in the game’s first 10 minutes. They closed it 6-of12 from behind the arc and also nailed 19 of 30 free throws, compared with just 12 trips to the free-throw line for KU. Despite the statistical disadvantages, KU remained in the game, led by the soft scoring touch of Engelman, who led Kansas with 18 points on 8-of-11 shooting. “I just stepped up,” Engelman said. “I still had confidence in my teammates and didn’t feel any burden.” After one of three straight buckets by Engelman, a layup by Davis cut the KState lead to 41-40 with 12:38 remaining. The Jayhawks (14-7 overall, 1-6 Big 12) were unable to creep closer, as KSU’s leading scorer, Brittany Chambers, drained a three-pointer on the next possession after KU failed to secure the rebound on the initial miss. Three Jayhawks — Davis,

Free State High product Chantay Caron started and drilled a threepointer in the opening minutes. The loss marks KU’s fifth consecutive conference loss and the 10th straight time the Jayhawks have left Manhattan after a defeat. Henrickson said the losses were beginning to wear on her team and that the pressure to crack the win column again was intensifying. “It grows every day,” she said. “We just gotta find a way to win, and we’d all feel better.” KU will play host to Colorado at 7 p.m. Wednesday at Allen Fieldhouse.

Jayhawks display growth in victory over KSU CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1B

“I’ve always said that Bill (Self’s) teams play as hard and as united as any team in the country,” K-State coach Frank Martin said. “That is a credit to Bill and his staff.” Robinson’s tragedy has brought to a national stage something evident to those who pay to watch the team play since early in the season: The players on this Kansas team like each other, like playing basketball with each other and like hanging out together. Coaches can set an environment to try to foster such feelings, but if they don’t recruit the right fits into a program, the mix can go sour. Nobody has illustrated that better this season than Kansas State, foolishly picked by the Big 12 coaches to win the league title. Dominique Sutton quit during the offseason, Freddy Asprilla bolted during the season. The Wildcats (14-8 overall, 2-5 in the Big 12), who have fallen so far, so fast after a spirited sprint to the Elite Eight last March, never came close to making it a game Saturday. Without last season’s jet of a backcourt running mate Denis Clemente around this season, so much has fallen upon senior Jacob Pullen. Kansas junior Tyshawn Taylor fulfilled his pregame goal of using his length to bother Pullen into taking difficult shots. Showing why he is a better NBA prospect than Pullen, Taylor frustrated Pullen into 2-for-10 first-half shooting. Pullen finished with 21 points, but many of those were scored when Taylor (13 points, two assists, one turnover and two steals) watched from the bench. Taylor noted Friday that because he had never lost to Kansas State, he didn’t know how much of a rivalry it was, words similar to those expressed by Martin’s former boss Bob Huggins when he took the job at K-State. (Huggins said it wouldn’t become a rivalry until K-State started winning more games.) Taylor broke the No. 1 interview rule by giving the opposition bulletin-board material, then contributed greatly to the game not feeling more like a massive mismatch than a rivalry. Things went even better for Kansas on the block than on the perimeter. K-State’s Curtis Kelly, who according to Pullen did not have a good week of practice, was a virtual no-show, didn’t score in 10 minutes of action and spent the entire second half on the bench. Remember when the Morris twins used to have games where they just didn’t look into it? They were freshmen then. Kelly’s a senior. The twins didn’t play to their size often back then. They do now. Markieff never looked taller than he did Saturday, when he hit the boards hard, defended with passion, dove for loose balls, hit a beauty of a hook shot and finished the night with 20 points, nine rebounds, two blocked shots and two steals. He played like an allconference center on a night Kelly played like a bewildered freshman. Pullen even commented on how the Morris twins do so much better a job of posting up low than the Kansas State post players, seldom allowed to establish position near the bucket because of the efforts of Robinson and the twins. It not only turned into such a memorable night for human reasons, it qualified as an important one for basketball reasons for Kansas. The Jayhawks not only have conducted themselves in a mature manner during these days of blossoming from boys into men, they showed they have made progress as a basketball team. Then again, those two areas of growth tend to go hand in hand.


Lopsided loss headache for Wildcats By Jesse Newell

In the postgame news conference, Kansas State coach Frank Martin was asked for something his team could learn from Saturday’s 90-66 loss to Kansas University. “The importance of aspirin,” Martin said. The Wildcats coach wasn’t the only one feeling the pain after KSU’s worst loss to KU since 2007. Senior guard Jacob Pullen said the contest was “up

there” in his ranking of worst losses at KSU. “I thought it was a dunk contest for a while,” Pullen said. “I thought we had stopped playing and just started watching them dunk.” KU’s 61.8 field-goal percentage was the highest allowed by KSU this season. “This year, we just ... we can’t guard,” Pullen said. “We give up easy buckets. We give up layups.” Most of KU’s offensive production came from inside, as the Jayhawks scored 48 points

in the paint. KU forwards Markieff Morris, Marcus Morris, Thomas Robinson and Mario Little combined for 53 points on 22-for-30 shooting (73.3 percent). “It didn’t look too good, really, for our bigs today,” KSU sophomore guard Rodney McGruder said. KSU played the entire second half without preseason first-team All-Big 12 selection Curtis Kelly, and Martin refused to comment on why the 6-foot-8 senior forward didn’t make it in.

The Wildcats also were miserable offensively in the first half. KSU shot just 7-for36 before halftime (19.4 percent), its worst shooting effort in a first half this season. Pullen said there were even instances coming out of timeouts when the Wildcats didn’t know which play they were running. KSU started slowly, falling behind 15-2 after the first 61⁄2 minutes. “It’s something that seems like it always happens when you walk into this building,”

Pullen said. “They usually don’t miss in the beginning, and they capitalize off your turnovers and your bad shots. For us, it happened again.” Martin also sensed another pattern with his team’s trips to Lawrence. “I told (KU coach) Bill (Self) I’d appreciate it if they stopped losing before we play here at Allen Fieldhouse,” Martin said. “It always does that. Before we come here, they lose a game, and we always get the (ticked)-off version of Kansas.”

GARY BEDORE’S KU NOTEBOOK Simien ceremony Wayne Simien’s jersey No. 23 was hung in the Allen Fieldhouse rafters during a halftime ceremony. The consensus first-team All-American, who ranks 12th all-time at KU in scoring, seventh in rebounding and fourth in double-doubles, spoke to the crowd at halftime and briefly broke down when thanking Jesus Christ for his own personal transformation and making possible the honor. “It’s a real humbling feeling knowing my name would be up there with so many of the Wilt) Chamberlain, greats like (W Paul) Pierce and (D Danny) Man(P ning,” Simien said. “It never was a goal of mine, something I was striving for. It just came back to me putting the team first. I had some great coaches, played on some great teams that really helped me to get to that level.” Simien’s jersey hangs in the southwest corner, next to Drew Gooden, Nick Collison and Kirk Hinrich. “It’s a great feeling. So many people helped me as a child back in Leavenworth, to my playing career at the University of Kansas on every level, not just athletic level but from a family standpoint, coach standpoint, administration here at the university. It’s not about me. So many people helped me achieve this honor,” he said. Noted KU coach Bill Self: “Wayne means a lot to a lot of people around here. He’s as great a young man as there is. He deserves to have his jersey hung. I’ve been very fortunate to coach some bad boys in my career. He’s the baddest college player I’ve ever coached. I mean bad as in good. We’ve never had anyone like him where we could throw it to him and knew four out of five times something good was going to happen. As a collegiate player, there’s been none better.”

FORMER KANSAS BASKETBALL STAR AND KANSAS NATIVE WAYNE SIMIEN watches as his No. 23 jersey is revealed on the south wall at Allen Fieldhouse during a halftime ceremony. Recruits in house Prep juniors in the stands included Perry Ellis, 6-8, Wichita Heights; Kaleb Tarczewski, 7-foot, St. Mark’s High, Southborough, Mass.; Nino Jackson, 6-0, Ardmore (Okla.) High; Zach Peters, 6-9, Prestonwood Academy, Plano, Texas (orally committed to KU). Ishmail Wainright, 6-5 sophomore, Raytown (Mo.) South, also attended. ESPN was incorrect in believing DeAndre Daniels, 6-8 from IMG Academies in Bradenton, Fla., would attend. Most recruiting analysts believe he’ll ultimately choose KU over Texas and Kentucky. Pregame changes The teams were not on the court for the national anthem. KU officials explained the pregame lineup of events was changed with ESPN’s GameDay in town and with a ceremony planned to recognize the state of Kansas’ 150th birthday. ... Former KU athletic director Lew Perkins attended, as did new A.D. Sheahon Zenger. Props for Taylor Self credited Tyshawn Taylor for his defensive work on

Jacob Pullen, who had 21 points, but just four the first half. “I have a lot of respect for Jacob, but we did a fabulous job on him,” Self said. Taylor also had 13 points. “Tyshawn didn’t turn it over. He played within himself,” Self said. “He drove it. That was a big key for us, him getting to the paint dribbling the ball. He got all the way to the rim several times.”

playing at this level, that’s unheard of. I was so anxious to get back on the court whether practice or the game. I just could not wait to see the fieldhouse again.” He hit seven of eight shots the second half, good for 15 points. His total of 17 points marked his second-highest output of the season, trailing only his career-high outing of 20 against UT Arlington. “We ran a couple things to try to get him an easy basket a couple times,” KU coach Bill Self said. “He did miss some shots in tight. There have been times in the past I maybe didn’t let him play through those things. I was going to do everything I could to let him play through that tonight. He needed to be out there.” Robinson scored six straight early in the second half — a short jumper in the paint, a driving layup, followed by a 15-footer — that gave KU a 55-31 lead. KU led by as many as 32 points in this one-sided affair. “After I hit the first two, I made my mind up on their end (playing defense) that I was going to shoot that (deep jumper). That was just momentum. It was a heat check,” said Robinson, who indeed was red-hot. “He got on a roll there for a minute,” Self said. “Good thing he got tired or he would have shot the next one maybe from halfcourt. He played so well, so much energy.” Robinson finished with three vicious dunks, including one in which he was called for a technical foul for hanging on the rim. He received a thunderous ovation and waved to fans upon exiting for good with 1:04 left. “That was a special deal for him. Of course, the fans here are incredible,” Self said, “how they recognized him when he checked in and how they recognized him when he checked out. It’s a special moment, one he’ll never forget. Of course it goes without saying we’re really proud of him.” Robinson received a lot of attention right after his stellar performance that helped the Jayhawks improve to 20-1 overall and 5-1 in the Big 12; KSU fell to 14-8, 2-5. KSU’s Jacob Pullen, who scored 21 points, but most when the game was well out of reach (KU led 15-2 and 37-20 at halftime and never looked back), spoke with Robinson in the handshake line. “Basketball is basketball, and the things that he is going through in life and regardless if this is a rivalry or whatever,

After, there was a series of accusations that we don’t spend enough time with them, don’t take care of their children as often, don’t do as much for them as for the other kids, and that my husband and son don’t like her, and on and on. Cliff called me some choice names and said until I treat them fairly, we will not be seeing the grandchildren again. The next day, they changed their phone numbers. They also are in the process of moving, and I know we won’t get a forwarding address. Our hearts are broken. Was I unfair? How much more did

Documentary ‘Brick City’ a gripping tale Newark may only be about 40 exits on the parkway from the Jersey Shore, but the excellent true-life documentary series “Brick City” (7 p.m., Sundance) is a million miles from “Jersey Shore.” Set in New Jersey’s biggest city and a place that has become a metaphor for urban violence and decay, “Brick City” follows the city’s young mayor, Cory Booker, and his aides; the embattled police director Garry McCarthy; and various residents and activists who have their beefs with both men and their policies. “City” follows Booker during the nittygritty of budget meetings and during some of his more camera-friendly moments, such as when he goes running with young police recruits and New Jersey’s then-governor Jon Corzine. The first episode follows Booker as he joins with President Barack Obama to campaign for Corzine only to see his opponent, Republican Chris Christie, triumph. Telegenic in very different ways than Booker, Christie also appears in the film as the men from different parties try to cooperate. The film also follows the ups and downs of a former gang member who continues to fight to stay out of prison even as he mentors young men to stay out of gangs. Newark, N.J., may not be everybody’s idea of a destination, but “Brick City” is almost impossible to stop watching once you’ve begun. ● The Betty White comeback continues with “The Lost Valentine” (8 p.m., CBS). She plays the devoted widow of a World War II veteran discovered by a spunky reporter (Jennifer Love Hewitt). ● “Counterterror NYC” (7 p.m., National Geographic) examines how the nation’s biggest city prepares for the worst before big events like the opening of the U.N. General Assembly, the U.S. Tennis Open and New Years Eve in Times Square. ● Stockard Channing narrates “Kennedy’s Home Movies” (8 p.m., TLC), a collection of clips and stills of three generations of the expansive clan at the center of American politics and pop culture for more than half a century. The accent here is on family togetherness and a certain trait of stoicism in the face of political triumph and sudden early death.

Tonight’s other highlights ● Scheduled on “60 Minutes” (6 p.m., CBS): the elusive Jaguar; Wikileaker Julian Assange. ● Snowboarding dominates the concluding night of the Winter X Games (6 p.m., ESPN). ● The best football players not participating in next week’s Super Bowl match between the Packers and the Steelers will appear in the NFL Pro Bowl (6 p.m., Fox). ● Nicolas Cage stars in the 2007 conspiracy thriller “National Treasure: Book of Secrets” (7 p.m., NBC). ● Oscar handicappers should not miss the 17th Annual Screen Actors Guild Award (7 p.m., TNT and TBS). ● A breath of fresh heir changes the social dynamics on the conclusion of the four-part miniseries “Downton Abbey” on “Masterpiece Mystery” (8 p.m., PBS, check local listings). ● Beverly and Sean try to save Matt from a bout of bad publicity on “Episodes” (8:30 p.m., Showtime).

JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS For Sunday, Jan. 30: This year, you will find that your strength lies behind the scenes. Often, you will decide not to share as you have in the past. If you are single, you meet people with ease, but use caution. If you are attached, the two of you as a couple need a lot of privacy to keep the embers exploding into flames. Capricorn reads you cold. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You'll Have: 5Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult Aries (March 21-April 19) ★★★★ You are feeling quite different than you have in the past few months. You handle the pressure and don't hesitate to rethink a procedure if it doesn't work. Tonight: Count on your sense of humor. Taurus (April 20-May 20) ★★★★ Hop in the car, breeze through the country and let your mind wander. Some of you might want to take off for the movies or to a flea market. Tonight: Put on some music. Gemini (May 21-June 20) ★★★★★ You benefit from one-on-one contact with a loved one. Certainly you don't always agree, but understanding where

each other is coming from is instrumental. Tonight: Togetherness is the theme. Cancer (June 21-July 22) ★★★★★ Defer to others. Allow yourself the freedom to pursue a creative idea, project or special relationship. Tonight: Enjoy the moment. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) ★★★ If you start thinking about how much you need to do in the next few weeks, you could get weighed down. Look to tight organization, efficiency and a limited amount of people with expertise involved. Tonight: Make it easy. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) ★★★★★ You might find yourself spinning quite a tale. Remember, this "story" is a direct reflection of your imagination. Tonight: Forget tomorrow. Live it up. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) ★★★★ Understand the role of your domestic life in nearly everything you do. For most people, home represents security. Tonight: Order in. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) ★★★★★ You have punch. Your expressions, tone and words tell others that you are not kidding. You need to communicate your boundaries in a dis-

happy. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) ★★★ Take some much-needed personal time. You might need to do some thinking. You have been or will be very optimistic. Tonight: In your head. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) ★★★★★ You know what you want and where you are going. Sometimes you don't realize the impact of your words and actions. Tonight: Not alone.

Lovers of traditional literary forums release Lawrence’s newest journal By Sean Rosner

As tablet and digital reader technologies continue to rise in popularity, more and more people are electing to download their books and magazines rather than stock their shelves with them. But there were at least two people in the world who weren’t bragging on Facebook about their new Kindles this past holiday season: Heidi Raak and Kate Lorenz, creators of Lawrence’s newest literary journal, Parcel. With a penchant for the printed page, Raak and Lorenz have spent the past six months making a publication that would be a work of art in itself. And this week, the pair will begin sharing Parcel with the rest of the world. Raak, owner of The Raven Book Store, 6 E. Seventh St., had always dreamed of getting involved in some sort of literary publication,

but it wasn’t until she met Lorenz last year that she finally got her chance. Lorenz, a Lawrence native, had recently returned to town from graduate school at the University of Alabama, where she served as the editor of the school’s renowned literary magazine, the Black Warrior Review. Lorenz contacted Raak about working on a project together, and Raak eagerly accepted. Excitement about this joining of forces spread quickly. Daniel Hoyt, who teaches fiction writing at Kansas State University and contributed a short essay to Parcel’s first issue, says he was hoping Lorenz would act ambitiously when she returned to Lawrence. “I think I heard about the partnership with Heidi and the creation of Parcel in an e-mail from Kate sometime in the fall,” Hoyt says. “I believe I cheered or pumped my fist, possibly both. It’s great news for the

Kansas literary community.” With Lorenz acting as editor and Raak as publisher, the pair worked tirelessly to set up a not-for-profit organization for the publication, solicit writers and funding, read the more than 500 submissions they received and edit the batch they

selected for the first issue. “We weren’t thinking about the challenge; we were going to get it done,” Raak says. Though Parcel has a national focus, Raak and Lorenz have a soft spot for Kansas writers, and say they are proud to be a part of the Lawrence literary scene. Both Raak and Lorenz say it was important to them not only to create a journal full of beautiful writing, but to make a beautiful physical product as well. For that purpose, they enlisted designer Justin Runge, who worked with Lorenz as the designer of Black Warrior Review and also works for Blue Hour Press, ensuring that Parcel will be something worth holding on to. “It’s more than the literary aesthetic,” Lorenz says. “It’s about the look and the feel of the tangible object.” And that love for the printed page

is something Raak and Lorenz share with the publication’s writers. Hoyt says that while he acknowledges the reach of online publications and literary websites, the elegance and beauty of a book cannot be replicated by a computer. And with this emphasis on the physical, Raak and Lorenz are thankful to have found a name for their journal that encompasses their vision. “With our focus on the object, something being sent in the mail, it was perfect,” Lorenz says. “We like the preciousness of it.” Raak and Lorenz plan to put out Parcel biannually, and have already started reading for the second issue, due out this fall. Each edition will house a diverse collection of poetry, short fiction and nonfiction. Keeping with the duo’s aesthetic Please see NEW, page 2C

Fiction winner Beth Reiber A professional travel writer, Reiber has lived for extended periods in Germany and Japan, and has, for the past 20 years, been the driving force behind “Frommer’s Japan,” “Frommer’s Tokyo” and “Frommer’s Hong Kong.” So it should come to no surprise that the fiction she entered in the contest was the first 20 pages of a would-be novel about an inspiring place where she lived off-and-on for three years — Japan. “I was living there, and I just had an idea of writing what it’s like for Westerners to come and live in Tokyo,” Reiber says. “Because it’s so different from the Western world, even though parts of it look like it would be Western because of the buildings and a lot of the things they’ve adapted from the West, but underneath, it’s still very Japanese.” Reiber says she has always toyed with writing fiction, but as the single mom of two teenagers, she preferred to do what paid the bills — writing about travel. Squeezing in the time for character development while working on a revision of one of her Frommer’s guides or gathering information for a smart phone travel app is good steady work, but it doesn’t leave much time for her to play around with her imagination. She took a few creative writing classes at the Arts Center, but even that was just a slight break from work. “I always thought (writing fiction) was maybe something I could do when my life slowed down,” she says. “But that hasn’t happened yet because I’m a single mom and I travel a lot and work a lot, and I have an 1890 old home that needs a lot of attention.” That said, she says she’s written five chapters of “Rife with the Tokyo Brews” and has a basic plot for the book, which revolves around four women sharing a house in Reagan-era Tokyo. She

‘BEST TRAILER IN TOWN’ I had the best trailer in town. People from all over the bluffs would come down in their Chevys and old Camaros and park sideways on our lawn. They unpacked trunks with shotguns in hand and lugged coolers to my door. Some brought beer Most came straight from the river coated with raw catfish guts. Our three-room rectangle hut swayed on concrete legs to Pat Benatar and Dire Straits. The Hairspray Ladies did cartwheels into walls and plopped stale lipstick onto my forehead I could always see the rotted teeth and the plastic baggies they pulled from snake-skin purses — Women liked sugar with their joints. The men liked to burp beer and slap asses while the trailer’s belly shook. My eyes burned through the smoke, they burned when Momma kissed her man. I couldn’t sleep through the yelps and whistles that seeped through the walls like oil. In the morning I would look outside at the left-behind clothes and beer cans, and every now and then a dead fish lingered on the sidewalk. But when I could walk through the empty stomach of my trailer it became a mansion and I ate peanut butter out of the jar while Momma slept on the bathroom floor.

says it’s easy to get lost in the characters. “When I write fiction, it’s

like it just takes over, and so I don’t know what the characters are going to say and do,” she says. “So, it’s kind of like I go in this other world, and so when I read it the next day, sometimes I’m very surprised because it’s almost like I didn’t write it. It’s very strange.” Reiber is a Lawrence native, a graduate of Lawrence High, where she was valedictorian in 1972 before going on to get a bachelor’s in German and a master’s in journalism from KU. She says that winning this award satisfies her creative side and is a nice push toward writing a bit of fiction whenever she can shoehorn it in. “It’s an affirmation, because when I was in my 20s I submitted a short story once, and they liked it and they said it just wasn’t their type of fiction and that I should try elsewhere, but I didn’t,” she says, mentioning another contest. “So, you always wonder ... so, for me, it is an affirmation that I should probably continue to do this.”

Poetry winner Mary Stone Dockery New to Lawrence, this was Dockery’s first shot at the Langston Hughes Award, given entrants must have lived in Douglas County for at least a year. She made the most of her first entry with what she calls her first contest win since “a coloring contest in second grade.” Stone Dockery’s poetry has a distinctly Midwestern vibe, and isn’t pretty or flowery. There’s grit and truth to it, which may be why Stone Dockery doesn’t shy away from tough subjects. “I write a lot of poems about mother-daughter relationships. That’s really big in my writing right now, but also intimate relationships. So, I guess I write about relationships,” she says, laughing. “But, yeah, especially about motherhood and strained mother-daughter relationships, those are really important to me.” Stone Dockery is a graduate teaching assistant at KU

Special to the Journal-World

KATE LORENZ, left, and Heidi Raak look over a proof of the first issue of Parcel, a new publication that collects literary submissions both local and national. Lorenz recently returned from graduate school at the University of Alabama, where she served as the editor of the school’s renowned literary magazine, the BlackWarrior Review. Raak, owner of The Raven Book Store, 6 E. Seventh St., had dreamed of getting involved in some sort of literary publication for some time.

aims, every issue will also have an eight-page spread devoted to a visual artist. The artist featured in the first issue is Jaclyn Mednicov, a KU graduate. Mednicov’s work featured in Parcel is a collection of whimsical, surreal images that comment on the relationship between nature and man-made structures. The pair had Parcel published at Allen Press, which satisfied two of their wishes,

keeping production as local as possible and as environmentally friendly as possible. Parcel was printed on Forest Stewardship Council-certified paper with soy-based ink. The next step for the Raak and Lorenz is to get Parcel into as many hands as possible. Raak plans to use her connections with other independent bookstores around the country to get some space on their shelves, and Lorenz will be traveling to the Associated Writing

P rog rams conference in Chicago next week to show off Parcel to potential distributors. “I’m a little anxious but am confident that we put out the best, most lovingly assembled journal possible,” Lorenz says. “We’re really looking forward to seeing how the magazine measures up.” You can pick up an issue of Parcel at The Raven Book Store or find more information at the Parcel website,

getting her Master of Fine Arts in creative writing. She graduated in 2009 from Missouri Western in St. Joseph, Mo., her hometown. She says she took about five years off between high school and college to get to know herself a bit before diving into college, despite the fact that she always knew she wanted to write. “I want to teach creative writing, and I want to write books — lots and lots of books,” she says, adding that she’d like to get her doctorate and teach on the college level. Since moving to Lawrence in fall 2009, she’s been involved in the literary scene on campus, but she hasn’t really dipped her toes into the mainstream Lawrence writing society. She says this win is huge for her — her first paycheck as a poet came in the form of the $500 winners receive, and, on top of that, it negates all the unsuccessful submissions to contests she’s made over the years. “I will officially be a paid author now! I may never get paid ever again,” she says. “That’s why I tell people they need to submit to this all the time ... even though you get 10,000 rejection letters, you just have to ignore that. I don’t care about that. You only care whenever that one person is like, ‘Wow, we like your poems!’ and you’re like, ‘Oh, I got to one person, yay!’ That’s really all that matters, just submit, submit, submit.” — Staff writer Sarah Henning can be reached at 832-7187.

FROM ‘RIFE WITH THE TOKYO BREWS’ It was unfortunate that the worst part of the day was right at the beginning. Mornings for Casey meant crowded train platforms, armies of grim-faced office workers, and packed subways, as millions of Tokyo commuters flowed en masse to their jobs. As far as she knew, mornings also brought the unnerving possibility of cracked bones. Today seemed more crowded than usual — or maybe it was just the ominously low, gray sky and the stifling heat that weighed upon them — and as Casey stood her ground on the platform waiting for the train, she shot furtive glances at the people filling up the spaces around her, taking mental notes of the men who looked suspi-

cious. Those who stared at her too openly. Those who seemed to edge their way through the crowd just to stand next to her. Those reading pornographic comics. Her eyes met the unblinking gaze of a man staring unabashedly at her, his face expressionless even as she scowled. In her mind she mapped out a strategy for boarding the train that would make it difficult for him to follow, but at the same time she knew it was useless. The pushing and shoving that would accompany the arrival of the train made it impossible to do anything but move with the will of the crowd. It was the phantom groper that she feared the most. — Beth Reiber

J.D. Salinger’s secrets Fascination with legendary writer persists even after his death

Don Strole, attorney, Lawrence “’The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest’ by Stieg Larsson. It fleshes out the main character Elizabeth a lot and brings a close to her story.”

Allie McKenzie, literature major, Dallas “It’s called ‘The Woman in White’ by Wilkie Collins. It’s a Victorian Gothic novel. It’s really a page turner.”

Cody Brown, political science doctoral student, Lawrence “’The Hunger Games’ by Suzanne Collins. It’s for kids, but it’s quite good. It’s about the future in North America. It’s post-apocalyptic and there are these zones and each zone has to send two people to fight.”

Heidi Yoder, florist, Lawrence “’Engulfed in Flames’ by David Sedaris. It’s just inspiring that he makes an (expletive deleted) out of himself but still is willing to write about it.”

Privacy still protected Salinger’s widow, Colleen O’Neill, still lives in Cornish, the small New Hampshire town where Salinger moved in the 1950s and where residents honored his wishes to be treated as an ordinary and private citizen. A few weeks after his death, she rose to speak at the annual Town Meeting in Cornish, thanked townspeople for keeping their distance and even for steering astray curiosity seekers looking for the Salinger house. Nothing has changed since, friends and neighbors say. “She’s a friend. We respect the family’s privacy, that’s pretty strong,” says Cornish resident Caroline Storrs. “If somebody wants a public persona, they can have it. If they don’t, then they don’t. That’s not challenged by anybody in the community,” says Salinger neighbor Peter Burling, who described the author’s widow as “a true delight” and “the best of neighbors.” “Mr. Salinger made it clear years ago he wanted privacy. That’s what he wanted and that’s what he’ll get.” Hungry biographers Remembrances came out after he died, including one from Lillian Ross of The New Yorker, where many of Salinger’s stories appeared, but publishers say they have seen no Salinger tell-alls proposed. The one major release is a biography by Kenneth Slawenski, unauthorized, of course, which includes blurbs from Peter Ackroyd and James Atlas. The book was released last year in Britain and Australia and has just been published in the U.S. by Random House. Slawenski is a Salinger fan who started the online resource in 2004 and eventually shaped his infor-

It’s the first day of spring, with a chill in the air.

I have no destination in mind and I really don’t care There are back roads and Blacktops that could lead anywhere. There’s so many roads to choose, I can’t take every one.

Associated Press Writer

One year after J.D. Salinger’s death, we know little more about him than we did in his lifetime. That has not kept outsiders from trying, or insiders from resisting. Rumors of completed, unpublished manuscripts remain rumors; no one is talking. There are still no Salinger e-books or planned film adaptations of his work. One award-winning biographer was rebuffed in an attempt to write an authorized book about the legendary novelist of “The Catcher in the Rye.” Salinger’s longtime literary agent, Phyllis Westberg of Harold Ober Associates Inc., would not comment on whether the estate had been approached, but said no biography had been authorized and that it was “very unlikely” such a project ever would be. (The would-be biographer asked not to be identified, citing a desire, fitting for all things Salinger, for privacy.) Salinger died Jan. 27, 2010, at age 91, an international celebrity although few would have recognized him had he appeared on their doorstep; he avoided the media for much of the last 50 years of his life. Besides “The Catcher in the Rye,” he released just three other books: “Nine Stories,” “Franny and Zooey” and “Raise High the Roofbeams, Carpenters and Seymour.” His last published work, the short story “Hapworth 16, 1924,” came out in The New Yorker in 1965.

‘A Motorcycle Ride to Nowhere’ But it’s a beautiful day for a ride to nowhere.

IN THIS IMAGE MADE AVAILABLE WEDNESDAY by the University of East Anglia, Donald Hartog and J.D. Salinger, right, pose together in London in 1989, when they met for the first time since 1938. A trove of letters written by Salinger to British friend Hartog reveals a different man from the popular conception of the reclusive Salinger.

About the wonderful ride I had to nowhere. — Gaylen Koons, Lawrence

Write poetry?

Letters reveal the social side of Salinger LONDON (AP) — He had a reputation as a literary recluse, but a trove of previously unseen letters written by J.D. Salinger to a British friend reveals a sociable man who took bus trips to Niagara Falls, ate fast-food hamburgers, enjoyed watching tennis and claimed always to be writing new work. The 50 letters and four postcards have been donated to a British university, which made them public Thursday on the f irst anniversary of the author's death at the age of 91. They show that the enigmatic writer of “The Catcher in the Rye” was an affectionate friend who enjoyed gardening, trips to the theater and church suppers — and thought Burger King’s burgers were better than the rest. Chris Bigsby, professor of American studies at the letters’ new home, the University of East Anglia, said they challenge Salinger's image as a near-hermit holed up in his New England home. “These letters show a completely different man,” Bigbsy said. “This is a man who goes on (bus) parties to Nantucket or Niagara or the Grand Canyon and enjoys chatting to people mation into narrative. Slawenski’s “J.D. Salinger: A Life” offers detailed background on the author’s early years and influences on his work. But there are no revelations about publishing’s greatest mystery: What did Salinger write during his self-imposed retirement and will any of those books, should they exist, be released? Slawenski, who cites respect for Salinger’s privacy in saying he never met the author or even visited Cornish, has a “hunch,” just a hunch, something will come out next year. He bases this on speculation that Salinger’s widow and son Matthew (neither of whom he has met) are more “reasonable” than the author. As evidence, he cites a recent out-of-court settlement in New York that banned publication in the U.S. (but not overseas) of a “Catcher” sequel written by Fredrik Colting, under the pen name John David California. The lawsuit began in 2009, a few months before Salinger died. “I don’t see in Colleen or Matthew the litigious nature that Salinger had. I think they wanted the case out of the way,” Slawenski said. “They

along the way. “He goes to art galleries and theater and travels to London to see (Alan) Ayckbourn and (Anton) Chekhov plays. He was out and about.” The letters were written to Donald Hartog, a Londoner who met Salinger in 1938 when both were teenagers in Vienna, sent by their families to learn German. They corresponded after returning home — Salinger to try his hand as a writer, Hartog eventually going into the food importexport business. The pair wrote to one another during World War II — in which Salinger fought as a soldier in the U.S. Army — but after a few years the friendship lapsed. Hartog's daughter Frances said her father burned those early letters while clearing out the house prior to a move. “When we were kids it was sort of a joke — ‘My dad knew Salinger and burnt the letters,’” she said. “He was de-cluttering. He said, ‘I looked at them and just thought, this guy’s not going anywhere.’” Hartog's literary judgment was wrong. Salinger became a celebrity when “Catcher in the Rye” was published in 1951. The story seem more forthcoming. Salinger, as he grew older, became less reasonable. He became more steadfast in his routine and in having the luxury of not having to produce new work. All of that solidified, that he wasn’t going to publish.” Westberg, whose agency represents the Salinger literary trust for which the author’s widow and son are trustees, called Slawenski’s “hunch” about new work “stuff and nonsense.” Slawenski said he contacted Westberg and asked for suggestions for writing his book. He was told, Slawenski said, to stay within certain boundaries, legal boundaries. In the 1980s, Salinger prevailed in a copyright infringement lawsuit against biographer Ian Hamilton, who had wanted to include extensive excerpts from the author’s letters. Slawenski was careful: No close paraphrasing and no direct quotes when possible. “I looked through the court papers and it was all spelled out where I could tread and where I could not tread,” Slawenski says. “Ian Hamilton’s awful experience worked to my benefit.” Westberg declined comment.

of the angry but articulate 16-year-old Holden Caulfield has sold more than 35 million copies and remains a classic portrait of youthful rebellion. Hartog reached his old friend after the publication of an unauthorized biography of Salinger in the 1980s. They began writing to one another regularly, and in 1989 Salinger traveled to Britain for Hartog’s 70th birthday. The two friends went to the theater and visited a zoo, and Salinger met Hartog’s three children. “I remember being not very keen on meeting him because I liked his writing and I was afraid it might spoil it,” said Frances Hartog. She needn’t have worried. Salinger “was very relaxed, very genial and genuinely interested in my father and in us.” Frances Hartog found the letters in a drawer after her father died in 2007. The family donated them to the University of East Anglia in Norwich, eastern England, which has well-regarded American studies and creative writing departments. The university says it will make them available to researchers and members of the public on request.

The show will be at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 12 at Unity Church of Lawrence, 900 Madeline Lane. Surprisingly, the genesis of this collection of murder ballads was a lullaby. “Jeff and I were picking a bit in his apartment one day, and we made an informal recording of a Tom Petty song,” Erelli says. “I was really taken with the blend of our voices and kept the tape. Shortly thereafter, I recorded a CD of lullabies and included that track.” When the two began to explore recording an album jointly, they knew it would feature their unique harmonies, a burnished combination that leans more toward the Everly Brothers than the Louvin Brothers.

‘I Love You Phillip Morris’ a gutsy love story By Eric Melin

As you may be able to tell from its title, the new comedy “I Love You Phillip Morris” is a love story. It’s about infatuation, obsession and the insane lengths people will go to when they are deep in love’s sway. It just so happens that the lovers in question are two gay men who fall in love in prison. Maybe it was the movie’s upfront and sometimes exaggerated treatment of a gay lifestyle, or perhaps it was the wildly divergent tonal shifts that caused the almost twoyear distribution delay in getting the film to release in America. Whatever it was, it was worth the wait. Unlike so many modern romantic comedies, this one has guts. Helmed by f irst-time directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, the screenwrit‘Dead Man’s Cell ers behind the vicious dark comedy “Bad Santa,” “I Love Phone’ opens You Phillip Morris” is a McArthur Genius Fellowship movie that is so over the top winner Sarah Ruhl’s quirky at times that it seems like a comedy “Dead Man’s Cell parody even as it dares you to Phone” comes to life in a new think of it as the God’s honest production this week at the truth.

Frankly, it’s a joy to see Carrey used in a way that revels in his schizophrenic nature while also trying to make some authentic emotional sense of it as well. The first part of the movie takes off at blinding speed, tracking Steven’s closeted married life as a lawman and churchgoer. Even after he has his (literal) Big Bang “a-ha” moment, the pace rarely slows down. Steven eventually cons his way into a legitimate CFO job with fake credentials (something that he would later use to shocking effect) and embezzles thousands of dollars, but not just because he is a criminal. Remember that whole “I Love You” thing? The trusting, doe-eyed Phillip Morris (played with a delicate sweetness by Ewan McGregor) is the object of

Steven’s desire, and no prison sentence or maximum security prison will keep them apart. There’s a genuine spark between these two, and Carrey and McGregor are having the time of their lives in these roles. They seem freed up, a little more reckless than usual. The places that “I Love You Phillip Morris” goes for laughs aren’t the usual for this genre, and that unpredictability is infectious. One example of this is in the first scene. For a comedy, it starts in a pretty dark place. We know that anguish is on the way for Steven, because in that opening, he is narrating the film from his death bed. Ficarra and Requa frame the story with this device, so a feeling of uncomfortable dread hangs over the proceedings, however joyful or playful any one particular scene is. When the movie itself begins to echo the grandest of Steven’s cons, even Phillip starts to question what’s real and what’s not. Does all of this constant up and down make “I Love You Phillip Morris” a jarring film? Absolutely. It’s not perfect. But it’s not rote either. The

A MAN shovels topsoil in this undated photo. Real topsoil, which takes centuries, even millennia, to develop, is a limited resource and is not what you necessarily get when you purchase topsoil.

No-till gardening better for soil health R

ototillers are a wondrous tool for soil improvement to many gardeners, but some people are leaving the tiller behind for old-fashioned no-till techniques. Yes, I said no-till. As in: No rototillers allowed. Soil structure is left intact. Compost and plant material are worked into the soil “the hard way.” Why would anyone want to go to so much work? There are many reasons, but ultimately, no-till gardening is about longterm soil health. The idea of soil health brings up another point — why should we worry about the soil? For just a minute, think about soil as more than a void under the grass and garden. Forget about muddy roads and what the dog or kids track in on their feet. Can you remember what soil feels like crumbling in your fingers or between your toes? Remember the deep earthy smell that is unique to healthy soil? Soil is intricately tied to life. It provides structure to walk on, drive on and build upon.

Garden Calendar

Jennifer Smith Soil provides habitat for plant and animal life, stores heat and water, and acts as a filter. We are dependent on soil for much of the food we eat and to grow plants that convert carbon dioxide into oxygen. Although new soil is being made (through weatherization of rocks, not decomposition of plant material), it typically takes 1,000 years or more to form just an inch of new soil. Also, soil is not just soil — it is a body, an intricate system of chemical and physical processes and of microscopic life. Continuance of those processes and

the health of those microscopic organisms contained in the body of soil are essential to sustain life. In my youth, I heard farmers argue the case for no-till and the benefits to soil, and now no-till is commonplace in agricultural production. But gardeners are slower to give up their tillers. The basic idea of no-till is to add organic matter (leaves and other plant material) back to the soil without disturbing soil structure. Some common no-till methods for small-scale production are known as double-digging, lasagna gardening and permaculture. (Lasagna gardening is so named because of the layering of soil and organic matter, much like creating a lasagna.) Tilling, as much as I used to love it, breaks down soil structure and affects the way air and water move through the soil. Over time, it causes a condition known as hardpan, when a distinct hard layer forms at a certain depth under loose topsoil.

Hardpan layers typically form at the same depth as a tiller and prevent water from moving easily through the soil profile. Pulverization is also an aftereffect of tilling. When soil is completely broken apart, particles bind together differently. Sometimes this becomes most apparent with the formation of a hard crust on the soil surface. Another argument against tilling is that it stirs up buried weed seeds. Seeds need light to germinate, so those that stay deep beneath the soil surface will not grow. Finally, soil in no-till systems typically retains moisture better than tilled soil, so plants generally require less watering over extended dry periods. For successful no-till gardening, using an abundance of organic matter and mulch is essential. Mix in plant material or compost before planting or spread it on the soil surface. Cardboard and newspaper also break down and benefit the soil, but be careful to weigh them down until they decay. Mulch heavily with leaves,

straw, prairie hay, etc., and leave that material on the garden to decay. Use a tool called a broad fork to lightly work organic matter into the soil. Broad forks have long narrow tines that create openings in the soil surface for air, water and organic matter movement. A pitchfork might also work but is smaller and less sturdy than a broad fork. I know the idea of no-till might be a little overwhelming. And honestly, tilling once or twice to initially work in organic matter is acceptable. Just avoid the “if a little is good, more is better” mentality — because too much tilling really is a bad thing. Building soil takes time, and most longtime gardeners build intimate relationships with the plots of ground they tend. But treat soil right, and it is a gardener’s (and farmer’s) best friend. — Jennifer Smith is the Horticulture Extension Agent for K-State Research and Extension in Douglas County.

Collectors covet iron toys as decorative objects By Terry Kovel

Iron toys made in the late 19th and early 20th centuries are so interesting and attractive that they are collected today to be displayed as decorative objects on a shelf. Some toys depict a character from a long-forgotten cartoon or book, or a legend that children of olden times knew but we do not. Why is a walking toy marked “Yellow Kid”? Because one of America’s first Sunday newspaper comic strips featured a character called the Yellow Kid. Why does a mechanical bank show a man trying to shoot a bear cub? It’s telling the story of

President Teddy Roosevelt, who went hunting but did not kill a cornered bear and was praised by newspapers. But why do so many toys show monkeys driving cars or tricycles or riding on other animals? Was there a famous circus act featuring talented monkeys? No one is sure, but old monkey toys are popular. In September, a cast-iron toy in very good condition made by Hubley Manufacturing Co., a famous Pennsylvania toymaker (1894-1965), auctioned for $1,948. It sold at one of the four Bertoia auctions held so far of the famous Donald Kaufman collection of toys. Perhaps the fame of the col-

lection added to the value of the toy. Who owned a toy often can affect its value.


We found a commercial icebox with the brand name “Lorillard” on it in an old home that we are restoring. It has been repainted several times. We would like to restore it. I’ve heard several theories about what we ought to do. Should we strip it down to the wood and shellac it or repaint it? Or should we leave it as it is? Your guidance would be appreciated.


The Lorillard Refrigerator Co. was estab-

lished in New York City in 1877. A 1901 advertisement for the company called its iceboxes the “highestpriced” refrigerators made and listed several millionaires, including Andrew Carnegie and George Vanderbilt, who were installing them in their homes. Vanderbilt ordered five Lorillard refrigerators for his Biltmore mansion in Asheville, N.C., in 1894. The company was in business until at least 1920. There’s not a big market for old commercial ice boxes, but you probably will increase its value by restoring the finish. Most were originally shellacked over wood.

THIS MONKEY’S LEGS look as though they are pedaling the trike when the toy rolls. The 6 1/2inch-long toy brought $1,948 at a Bertoia auction in Vineland, N.J. Q: I inherited a 19th-century vase from my grandmother. It is 28 inches high

and is signed “H. Despres, Sevres.” It’s painted with scenes of what looks like a rich family going for a ride in the country. What would its insurance value be? A: The scenes you describe are typical of Sevres vases decorated by Henri Desprez from about 1875 to 1890. Vases as large as yours sell for more than $5,000, depending on condition. It should be seen by a qualified appraiser to determine its value. Contact some of the major auction houses or an appraiser in your area for an estimate. The insurance value should be the same as the price it would cost to replace the piece.
