Snowstorm knocks city out cold Dangerous wind chills expected to last through Thursday By George Diepenbrock gdiepenbrock@ljworld.com

ONLINE: Watch the video at LJWorld.com

A major winter storm walloped Lawrence and most of eastern Kansas on Tuesday with several inches of snow and cold temperatures. And local and state officials discouraged travel as high winds and blowing snow made it difficult for crews to clear streets and roads. DouCounty CLOSINGS glas was under a blizzard For the latest news on today’s warning that expired late closings and cancellations, Tuesday. A wind chill go to advisory LJWorld.com. remains in effect until noon today. “If people don’t have to go to work, it would probably be better if they just stay home,” said Chuck Soules, Lawrence’s public works director. Much of Lawrence was shut down Tuesday with Kansas University’s campus and Lawrence public schools closed. City and county offices, banks and other businesses, even Sears, 2727 Iowa, closed early Tuesday as the weather worsened. KU’s Lawrence and Edwards campuses will be closed again today. It’s the first time since January 2002 that KU has been closed consecutive days for weather. Owner Jerry Neverve closed his Red Lyon Tavern, 944 Mass., early, meaning the downtown bar was not open for the KU and Texas Tech basketball game Tuesday night. He said that was indicative of how bad the weather was. “The wind’s blowing. It’s cold,” Neverve said. “It’s no reason to be out.” Other places kept their

Residents recall memorable storms from winters past By Christine Metz cmetz@ljworld.com

For the entire month of January, Thelma Dillon waded through towering snow drifts as she walked up a long, winding lane to her home. It was the winter of 1979. On Jan. 13 of that year, 9.6 inches of snow fell. It’s a total that hasn’t been surpassed in any January since. For Dillon, the mounting snow drifts made the lane impassable even in her brand new pickup truck. So to get from her farm house in Pleasant Grove to her job at Kansas University, she trudged up and down the quarter-mile lane by foot. “I doubt if I missed a day (of work),” Dillon said. “But the snow drifts were up to my waist.” It was one of the worst winters Please see WINTER, page 2A the 89-year-old Douglas County

resident can recall. As a blizzard swirled around Lawrence Tuesday morning, the National Weather Service was calling for snow accumulation to potentially break into the top five all-time daily snow falls. The highest daily snow fall on record occurred on March 23, 1912, when 20 inches fell. In the past 20 years, the biggest snowfalls in Lawrence have occurred on Dec. 8, 2005; Oct. 22, 1996; and Feb. 25, 1993. Seven inches fell on each of those days. Kansas State Climatologist Mary Knapp said snow comes in cycles. The snowstorms that have wreaked havoc throughout much of the country this year can largely be attributed to La Nina. The weather phenomenon, caused by cooler water temperatures in the tropical Pacific Ocean, displaces

3 elementary schools discussed as potential candidates for closing By Mark Fagan mfagan@ljworld.com

Three elementary schools are targets for potential closure next year, but the leader of the Lawrence school board isn’t yet ready to sign off on a plan that remains more than three weeks from completion. The three schools — Cordley, Pinckney and Wakarusa Valley — emerged as potential candidates for closure, as part of deliberations for a report to be compiled by the

Lawrence Elementary School Facility Vision Task Force. The task force, appointed last year by the Lawrence school board, is charged with developing a community-based vision for the district’s elementary schools that remains mindful of dwindling financial resources. During the task force’s meeting Monday night, members reached a consensus to study the effects of closing any of the three schools next year. The schools were identified

“Stay tuned,” said Minder, a cochairman of the task force. “We’ll have to see what happens that the next meeting.” Several task force members had expressed concerns about recommending a closure or even consolidation of Cordley, while Pinckney also had some support. No task force members made a case to keep Wakarusa Valley open, although earlier discussions had raised concerns about the potential for increased transportation time by bus.

during discussion, not any sort of formal vote, by the 19 members attending at district headquarters. Also through consensus, task force members said they would anticipate recommending one or two of the schools close next year. Such recommendations are due to board members by the end of this month. After the meeting, Rich Minder, school board president, said he wasn’t ready to concede that any of the potential closures would make it into the task force’s final report.

BRIEFLY Preservation task force seeks public feedback

Franklin Co. Sheriff seeks assault suspect

The public has a chance to comment on a report that will help Douglas County Commissioners decide how to allocate money toward open space and historic preservation. The Natural and Cultural Heritage Task Force will host a public hearing 7 p.m. Thursday at the Douglas County Courthouse, 1100 Mass. The committee will gather feedback on its recommendations of how to spend the $350,000 the Douglas County Commission approved for conserving natural and cultural resources. In its preliminary report, the task force recommended the money be divided as follows: ● 55 percent on one or two major projects. ● 30 percent on a series of smaller target projects. ● 10 percent on a countywide inventory that will map and describe places of historical and natural significance. ● 5 percent on administrative costs. The report can be found online at heritageconservationdouglascounty.org. And residents can submit written comments on the plan until Feb. 16. Comments can be submitted through the site above or mailed to Collin Bielser at 1100 Mass., Level 2, Lawrence, KS, 66044.

Franklin County Sheriff’s officers are looking for a man suspected of sexually assaulting a 14-year-old Kansas City, Mo., boy Monday night on Interstate 35 as the boy was walking to a gas station after his family had car trouble in the winter storm. Undersheriff Steve Lunger said the boy’s family had car problems about 10 p.m. Monday about a mile south of I-35’s junction with Kansas Highway 68, just east of Ottawa. The boy started walking toward the nearest gas station when a man stopped and asked the boy if he wanted a ride. The boy got into the truck, and the man sexually assaulted him. Then the suspect made the boy get out of the truck, Lunger said. The boy then walked to the gas station and returned to his family. Lunger said officers are looking for a white man between the ages of 26 and 28 with dark brown hair, blue eyes and a medium build. The suspect does not have facial hair and was driving a mediumsized pickup truck, although no color of the vehicle was given. Investigators are asking anyone who might have seen something from 9 p.m. to 10:15 p.m. Monday in the area of I-35 to call 785-242-3800 and ask for Detective Bob Moews.

Brownback signs disaster declaration TOPEKA — Because of the severe winter storm, Gov. Sam Brownback on Tuesday signed a disaster declaration that activates emergency actions and authorizes state resources for assistance statewide. “We ask Kansans to be extremely careful as the storm moves across the state.

the jet stream farther north. But Knapp said Lawrence also is right on the cusp of a climate pattern know as the North Atlantic oscillation, which brings Arctic air over the Atlantic seaboard and Midwest. “It can go in waves,” Knapp said of snowfall. Roy Cropp, an 85-year-old Lawrence resident who taught at Lawrence High School for 36 years, said the recent winters remind him of his childhood.

“We are having harder winters this year and last year that compare to some of the winters we had growing up in the 1930s and 1940s,” Cropp said. As a school teacher in Burlingame, Cropp remembers driving a school bus through 4-foot drifts in the early 1950s. When he got stuck, local farmers would help dig him out.

This week’s dangerous combination of a layer of ice followed by heavy snow will make for some treacherous driving conditions. For people who must navigate the slippery, snow-covered roads, AAA has these tips:

Before you go ● Be sure to check highway road conditions and reports. The Kansas Department of Transportation’s website at ksdot.org is a good place to start. If needed, postpone your trip. ● Clean ice and snow off

windshield wipers, the windshield and all windows. ● Check fluid levels to make sure the engine oil, radiator coolant and windshield wiper fluid are filled. ● Keep an emergency kit in the car that includes blankets, boots, water, nonperishable food, first-aid kit, flashlight, candles, matches or light, and a shovel. ● Be sure your gasoline tank is full and your cell phone is fully charged.

On the road ● Steer clear of slush mounds. Heavier, wet snow can form slush mounds, which can pull a car deeper

If your wheels start to spin, let up on the accelerator until traction returns. ● Minimize brake use on slippery, icy hills. To slow down while going down a hill, put pressure on the brakes slowly to avoid losing control. ● If you hit a patch of ice, avoid braking.

Weather forces city transit to stop early By Chad Lawhorn clawhorn@ljworld.com

Well, they lasted a lot longer than school buses did. The city’s public transit system opened on Tuesday and ran for most of the day before inclement weather caused it to shut down at 4 p.m. — four hours earlier than normal. “It is important for us to provide service,” said Robert Nugent, the city’s public transit administrator. “About 60 percent of our passengers use the bus to go to work, and that doesn’t change, even in difficult weather.” The transit system is scheduled to reopen at 8 a.m. today — about two hours later than normal.

“More than Shirts”

We’ve moved!

Nugent encouraged Lawrence residents to take the bus rather than getting their own vehicles out on the road. Jenna Wasylenko, a Kansas University graduate student, took that approach on Tuesday. “They seem to be running OK,” Wasylenko said Tuesday afternoon. “I think it is a lot safer than taking your car out.” But Nugent said bus riders do need to be prepared to change plans a bit during inclement weather. Riders need to keep an ear open for possible early shutdowns of the system. Nugent said that when early shutdowns are required, the city strives to provide at least a few hours’

No extra pay involved in makeup days By Mark Fagan mfagan@ljworld.com

Lawrence school district teachers and their licensed colleagues won’t be collecting any special pay for any makeup time spent in the classroom, library or anywhere else their contracts call for because of days lost to snow. “There would be no additional compensation for that,” said David Cunningham, the district’s director of human resources.

“You’re not going to get paid any extra or work any less. If we make it up, you’re going to make it up in one way or another.” Administrators, likewise, don’t get paid extra if a school year ends up being extended, either by tacking a few minutes onto each school day or adding days to the end of the school year. Many administrators end up working snow days anyway, although the district’s central office closed at noon Tuesday because of mount-

The study concludes that the cameras have reduced the rate of fatal crashes by 24 percent in 14 large cities that introduced red-light cameras between 1996 and 2004. In cities with the cameras, the study also noted drops in all fatal crashes at intersections with traffic signals, not just those caused by running red lights. The institute claims that the reduction translates into 159 lives saved over five years in those cities. If all large cities had cameras, a total of 815 lives could have been saved, according to the study. ● More nation and world news. Page 6C

KANSAS UNIVERSITY ASSISTANT PROFESSOR Andrew Short sifts through water beetle specimens that he collected in Suriname. He returned to the U.S. with 20 new species.

KU scientist finds new species By Andy Hyland ahyland@ljworld.com

ONLINE: See the video at LJWorld.com

Andrew Short said he’s enjoyed spending his days focusing on water beetles, a profession that’s taken him to some of the far corners of the globe. The KU assistant professor of ecology and evolutionary biology, returned from a trip to Suriname in South America this summer with 20 new species of water beetles. That happens relatively frequently for entomologists like Short. A piece of paper hanging on his office door reminds him daily that fewer than one in 10 species of insect has been discovered and catalogued by science. He’s already described more than 100 beetles in his career. By cataloguing new species, he can help further describe the whole category of water beetles. “It’s difficult to know your family history if you only know one side of it,” he said. Knowing that family history can help out with a range of

The 100 dogs were shot dead over two days after an expected post-Olympics boom in dogsledding business at an adventure company didn’t pan out. Most died instantly, but others suffered — like the one that ran away with its “face blown off and an eye hanging out.” The gruesome event was described in documents awarding compensation to a worker, who claimed he suffered post-traumatic stress disorder from shooting the dogs after bookings dropped sharply for a tour operator following the 2010 Winter Olympics. Marcie Moriarty, general manager of cruelty investigations for the B.C.

other things, too. He estimated that he brought back more than 85 species of water beetles from Suriname, but that it could be more. And water beetles can actually tell scientists a lot about water quality and a whole other range of issues related to the biodiversity of a region. By looking at the beetles present in a specific area, and the beetles that aren’t there, too, researchers can glean additional information they might not be able to obtain otherwise. There was a noticeable absence of some common water beetles in South America that he didn’t find on his trip to Suriname. “It was kind of like if you’re walking around Lawrence and did not see any squirrels,” he

said. “You notice they’re not around.” Those species of beetle happened to prefer more open areas, and the fact that the team didn’t find them meant that their particular area of the forest remained relatively undisturbed. Many of the beetles he collected in Suriname ended up on pins, and were placed in KU’s entomology collection. Jennifer Thomas, a collection manager for the KU Biodiversity Institute, said KU’s collection features more than 4.5 million specimens. “For university collections, we are definitely one of the largest,” she said. Housed in KU’s Public Safety building, the collection is well known for its tropical beetles, scorpion flies and bees, Thomas said. The bee collection is largely thanks to the work of retired KU professor Charles Michener, who is one of the world’s foremost bee experts. — Higher education reporter Andy Hyland can be reached at 832-6388.

Magda Khater and Moussa Elbayoumy both grew up in Egypt before coming to the United States in the 1980s and to Lawrence in 1995. Neither is surprised about the protests that have already taken the lives of over a hundred Egyptians. “For the last 30 years, the police have pretty much have had license to do whatever When this they want, and they’ve is all said and been govern- done, how is ing with an iron fist,” said the whole economy Khater, whose two going to pick siblings, her up and mother and many nieces survive?” and nephews are still in — Lawrence resident Cairo. “I hon- Magda Khater, who estly do see grew up in Egypt the rifts between the haves and have-nots.

She said she heard her nephew and brother were walking in a neighborhood and saw people looting a building, and her brother tried to talk the looters out of taking property. “People are so oppressed and so angry,” she said. “It’s just a

SOUND OFF

Q:

When is Spring Break for the Lawrence school district?

A:

The district’s Spring Break is March 21 to 25, which coincides with Spring Break at Kansas University. Students in grades 7 through 12 will get an early start on the break, because junior highs and high schools will be closed the previous Friday — March 18 — for conferences. The district’s administrative offices are scheduled to be closed March 25, the last day of Spring Break. And in case you’re wondering about 2012: Next year’s Spring Break is set for March 19-23, the same as at KU; conferences for middle schoolers are set for March 15 and 16, and conferences for high school students are scheduled for March 16, with district offices to be closed March 23.

Bill would try to help protect young athletes from head injuries By Scott Rothschild srothschild@ljworld.com

T O P E K A — Legislation aimed at protecting young athletes from head injuries in school sports has won the backing of the NFL and Kansas City Chiefs. But several members of the Senate Public Health and Welfare Committee wondered on Monday if Senate Bill 33 was an overreach by government, while LEGISLATURE another said the measure didn’t go far enough. Dr. Bart Grelinger, a neurologist from Wichita, said the legislation represented “a great start” but needed more work. The proposal would require that an athlete who appears to have suffered a concussion be removed from practice or a game. It also would require clearance from a health care provider before the youth could participate again, and provide education on head injuries to youngsters, parents and coaches. Grelinger said concussions represent nearly 9 percent of all high school athletic injuries. “We are getting leaner, meaner, faster and have more agility, and that means head injuries,” he said. And because concussions are invisible — unlike a broken arm or twisted ankle — sometimes children are sent back “in harm’s way” before they should go, he said. He said the proposal, which currently covers school sports, needs to be expanded to cover sports outside of school, such as soccer clubs. Sen. Roger Reitz, R-Man-

hattan and a physician, had a problem with the bill allowing a licensed health care provider to provide approval for a student to resume sports. Reitz said that decision should probably be left up to a specialist, such as a neurologist. David Carr, who is director of the athletic training education program at Kansas University, said the bill should ensure that whoever OKs a student’s return should be trained and up to date on the management and treatment of concussions. “Our knowledge on concussion is advancing every day,” he said. Sen. Dick Kelsey, R-Goddard, said legislators often tout that schools should be locally controlled. “This appears to possibly be another step in micromanaging how the school districts run their operations,” he said. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and Kansas City Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt submitted written testimony in support of the legislation. “Given our experience at the professional level, we believe a similar approach is appropriate and necessary when dealing with concussions in youth sports,” Goodell said. “While concussions occur in football, they are also prevalent in many youth sports including soccer, hockey, and basketball — whether played by boys or girls,” said Hunt, chairman and chief executive off icer of the Chiefs. “This legislation will help parents, teachers, coaches and the youth athletes themselves recognize the signs and symptoms of concussions and respond appropriately,” he said. — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

Police arrest man suspected in sex crime involving 14-year-old Lawrence police Monday evening arrested a 26-year-old man accused of committing a sex crime against a minor. Sgt. Matt Sarna, a police spokesman, said the man was accused of having sexual relations with a 14-year-old girl from mid-December to Jan. 22 at a north-central Lawrence residence. A parent of the girl made the

initial report to police, Sarna said. Police arrested the man on charges of aggravated indecent liberties with a child, indecent solicitation of a child, criminal sodomy with a child and furnishing alcohol to a minor. He was being held without bond. Sarna said no further details were available Tuesday afternoon as the investigation continued.

Douglas County District Attorney Charles Branson said he expected his office to get information from police today before prosecutors made a decision about formal charges. The suspect would likely see a judge this afternoon. The Journal-World generally does not identify sex crime suspects unless they are convicted.

Sunflower Electric CEO will retire in 2012 By John Hanna Associated Press Writer

T O P E K A — The president and chief executive officer of a western Kansas utility that hopes to build a coal-fired power plant plans to retire early next year. Earl Watkins Jr. says he’ll leave the top management job at Sunflower Electric Power Corp. in January 2012, after holding the position more than seven years. In leading the Hays-based electric cooperative, Watkins became highly visible in political and legal disputes over the utility’s plans to add at least one new coal-fired plant next to an existing one outside Holcomb, in southwest Kansas. He and then-Democratic Gov. Mark Parkinson struck a deal in May 2009 to allow the construction of one new coalfired plant, gaining legislative support for initiatives to promote wind and other renewable forms of energy. Sunflower had wanted to build

two new coal-fired plants outside Holcomb, but saw that project blocked by the state; legislators who supported the project in turn had stymied “green” policies favored by Parkinson and his predecessor as governor. News of Watkins’ planned retirement has surprised some backers of Sunflower’s $2.8 billion project, and they praised his leadership of the company. But Watkins also received credit for pushing Sunflower to promote renewable energy from a spokeswoman for the Sierra Club, despite its strong opposition to the new coal plant. Watkins said he told Sunflower’s board of directors in August that he planned to step down. The utility hasn’t formally announced his departure, though a listing of the opening is posted on PowerJobsDirect.com, an industry jobs-search website, with an application deadline of April 29. “I want to spend time with family, and — as silly as it

sounds — travel,” Watkins told The Associated Press. Sunflower’s board named Watkins the cooperative’s CEO in June 2004, after he’d served as an executive vice president and general counsel. Sunflower, formed by six western Kansas cooperatives, supplies power for about 400,000 Kansans. U.S. Rep. Tim Huelskamp said the new coal plant will be Watkins’ legacy. Huelskamp, a Republican elected last year in the 1st Congressional District of western and central Kansas, was a strong supporter as a state senator of Sunflower’s attempts to build new coal-fired generating capacity. “Earl would be the first one to say it’s a western Kansas project, and he played a big role in it,” Huelskamp said. “Hopefully by the time he leaves, we’ll be digging, moving earth.” The plant’s capacity would be 895 megawatts, enough to meet the peak demands of 448,000 households, accord-

BRIEFLY Salina Animal Shelter euthanizes 15-25 cats SALINA — Between 15 and 25 cats were euthanized at the Salina Animal Shelter after an outbreak of distemper. Shelter coordinator Rose Base says three cats died at the shelter about two weeks ago and Kansas State University confirmed they died of distemper. The other cats at the shelter were euthanized by injection and cremated after showing signs of the virus. Distemper is a virus that causes nausea, vomiting and extreme depression in cats. Many cats die within two days and only about 5 percent survive the infection. The Salina Journal reported that as of Monday, the only cat at the shelter was an 8-monthold kitten.

It’s not clear what caused the outbreak. Myers says the shelter will no longer accept cats who have not been vaccinated for distemper.

State school board to discuss bullying again TOPEKA — The Kansas State Board of Education plans to consider two statements on bullying next week. The board has been discussing how to address bullying in schools for several months. The discussions started after reports in September and October of a string of suicides nationally among gay teens who had been bullied. A 2008 state law requires each of the state’s 289 school districts to have anti-bullying policies in place, and most have adopted guidelines from

reaction of anger.” Elbayoumy, a medical consultant, said he was able to speak with his family in Cairo over the weekend after limited cell phone service was regained. He spoke with them at 1 a.m. Egyptian time, and members of his family were forming a neighborhood watch to protect their property from looters. He said most of the country thinks that President Hosni Mubarak should step down from his post. “I think everyone shares the feeling that it has reached the point of no return,” he said. “I’m not surprised at all. I have actually been expecting this for some time.” Both Khater and Elbayoumy are worried about what will happen in the next few weeks and in the longer term

in a country that could soon be without its president, who’s been in power for almost 30 years. “When this is all said and done, how is the whole economy going to pick up and survive?” Khater said. “People are hoping for the president to leave, and if it doesn’t happen in the next week, will they settle down?” But everything takes place on a global scale, Elbayoumy said, and ultimately these protests will affect Americans and even Lawrence residents. His wife agrees. “At the end of the day, it boils down to money. What regime are we supporting?” Khater said. “As human beings, we have to care. We as taxpayers, we keep feeding this.” — Reporter Brenna Hawley can be reached at 832-7217.

ing to one state estimate. Three-quarters of the new capacity, or 695 megawatts, would be reserved for a Sunflower partner, Tri-State Generation and Transmission Association Inc., of Westminster, Colo. That’s a sore point for many critics of the project, though supporters say exporting electricity is as beneficial as exporting beef, wheat and other agricultural commodities. Supporters also have argued that the new plant will lead to an upgrade of transmission lines, making it possible to move large volumes of wind-generated power as well. They contend Sunflower’s technology will be advanced and clean enough to serve as a model for the industry. “He helped us overcome a number of obstacles to get there,” said state Senate President Steve Morris, a Hugoton Republican.

Success story Lawrence and Douglas County should try to be part of Berry Plastics’ future successes.

T

hink of how many times you’ve consumed a beverage out of a plastic cup. Those cups have to be made somewhere, and, thankfully, many of them are made right here in Lawrence. Berry Plastics — which is a successor to the locally founded PackerWare Corp. — employs about 900 people in its plant in northern Lawrence. Business is booming. The company has come up with a new process that reduces the amount of plastic needed to construct a cup, making it both more environmentally friendly and more economical. Business is so good that the company now needs a new warehouse and printing facility to keep up with operations. The company has submitted plans for an approximately $20 million, 600,000-square foot facility that would be built northwest of Lawrence near the Lecompton interchange on the Kansas Turnpike. It is quite a success story. The company wants a number of financial incentives to locate the project in Douglas County. All community leaders would be happier if that were not the case. In past years, such requests were relatively rare, but in today’s highly competitive bidding for new industry, this seems to be the norm. The few major industrial projects that move forward in this economy almost always come with an incentives request. Other communities are willing to offer such incentives. We can wish the rules of this game were different, but it seems foolish for us to refuse to play. Douglas County commissioners are scheduled to review the project and the proposed incentives today. The incentives are substantial. They include a 90 percent tax abatement for 10 years, and up to $600,000 in public improvements to a county road, a rural waterline and perhaps even some private roads for the warehouse. County leaders have been studying the request for quite some time. Certainly, due diligence must be done, but it appears the project is a winner for our community. Some critics have said the project is unworthy because it will only add about a dozen new jobs to Berry’s local work force. While that is technically true, it also is shortsighted. The new warehouse will allow about 200 employees to be transferred from Berry’s Lawrence production plant, freeing up space in the existing plant for new production lines, which will produce additional jobs. Is there a guarantee that will happen? No. Those looking for a guarantee are probably in the wrong business. Economic development, especially in today’s environment, involves risks. The best a community can do is be thoughtful and bet wisely. Simply put, Berry is a good bet. The company has a product with strong demand, it has a history of providing jobs in Lawrence, and it wants to construct a $20 million building that will be paying local taxes long after its 90 percent abatement expires. We should welcome Berry Plastics and its project, and do all we can to ensure that Douglas County is a part of its future success stories.

Latin America must face education needs President Barack Obama’s call for a “new Sputnik moment” in his annual State of the Union speech was a dramatic wake-up call for America. Now, he should expand the reach of his message, and turn it into a call to action for all countries of the Americas. In his Jan. 25 address, Obama said the United States is falling behind other countries in education, science, technology and innovation. The United States needs to invest much more in science and technology programs, much like it did in the 1950s after

To grow steadily and reduce poverty at much faster rates, Latin America badly needs a ‘Sputnik moment’ to wake it up from decades of complacency and declining education standards.”

the Soviet Union sent the Sputnik satellite into space, and Washington started the space program that eventually led to the first manned spacecraft to the moon, he said. “The world has changed,” Obama said. “China and India realized that with some changes of their own, they could compete in this new world. And so they started educating their children earlier and longer, with great emphasis on math and science. They are investing in research and new technologies.” “Just recently, China became the home to the world’s largest private solar facility, and the world’s fastest computer,” he said. To succeed in this new environment, “we need to out-innovate, out-educate and out-build the rest of the world,” he added.

It was the centerpiece of Obama’s most important scheduled speech of the year, and it carried a bold proposal: to drastically increase U.S. investments in education, technology and scientific research, while cutting almost everything else from the budget to reduce the giant U.S. budget deficit. Obama called on Congress to fund the training of 100,000 new teachers in math, science and technology, as well as huge investments in biomedical research, information technology and clean energy technology. Obama’s speech should be required reading in Latin America, where despite an eight-year cycle of strong economic growth largely due to high world commodity prices, most countries are falling behind the rest of the world in education and innovation, but few are paying attention. Consider: ● In the recently released Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development’s PISA tests measuring 15-year-olds’ proficiency in math, science and reading comprehension, China’s city of Shanghai, Singapore and Finland occupied the first places. The United States ranked 17th, Spain 33rd, Chile 44th, Uruguay

47th, Mexico 48th, Colombia 52nd, Brazil 53rd, Argentina 58 and Peru 63. ● Only 2 percent of all world investments in research and development of new products are carried out in Latin America. By comparison, 36 percent take place in the United States and Canada, 32 percent in Europe, and 27 percent in Asia, according to Ibero-American Network of Science and Technology Indicators. ● All 32 Latin American countries together, including giants Brazil and Mexico, register less than 3 percent of the patents registered annually by just one Asian country, South Korea, according to the U.S. Trademarks and Patents Office. In 2009, South Korea registered 8,800 patents, while Brazil registered only 103, Mexico 60, and Argentina 45. ● There is not one single Latin American university among the best 100 universities of the world ranked respectively by the British-based Times Higher Education Supplement and the Shanghai, China-based Jiaotong University, despite the fact that Brazil and Mexico are among the world’s 12 largest economies. ● Many Latin American coun-

tries have the longest school vacations on earth. While the school year has 243 days in Japan and 220 days in South Korea, it has 200 days in Mexico and 190 days in Argentina, but — when you include teacher strikes and unscheduled holidays — it often numbers 160 days. My opinion: If President Obama was searching for a theme for his Latin America policy, and for a concrete plan to take to the next Summit of the Americas to be held in Cartagena, Colombia, in April 2012, this is it. He should broaden his State of the Union address to include the whole hemisphere, and offer U.S. cooperation and know-how to improve education, science and technology standards across the region. To grow steadily and reduce poverty at much faster rates, Latin America badly needs a “Sputnik moment” to wake it up from decades of complacency and declining education standards. Education, science, technology and innovation should not be just a U.S. obsession, but the new joint cause of the Americas. — Andres Oppenheimer is a Latin America correspondent for the Miami Herald.

PUBLIC FORUM

Insipid proposal To the editor: Our new secretary of state has decided that combating voter fraud is the most important use of his time. Never mind that elections are an ancillary duty of the office which exists primarily to facilitate corporate filings. Never mind that there are 105 duly elected county clerks who also have authority over elections. Never mind that requiring a voter to present photo ID to poll officials who have known that individual for upwards of 20 years may strike one as insipid. Move ahead. Mr. Kobach is four or five years older than my son, so he and I may have different world views. As one who lived through the entire Cold War, I was always of the opinion that we were the ones who did not say, “Your papers, please.” That was definitely the message I got from movies, television and ROTC. That was the message I got from my father and three uncles who had their lives interrupted in 1942 to deal with countries who registered and regulated their citizens. I had always understood that my word was good and that I would do what was my duty. Voting is a sacred right I was willing to bear arms to defend. I still am, but I doubt that I would be a lot of use. If this law that is probably unconstitutional and definitely insipid and unnecessary passes, I will present all the necessary documents in 2014 to challenge Mr. Kobach in the Republican primary — and old men don’t pull punches. Earl Haehl, Lawrence

Financial reality To the editor: Over the past two years, many businesses and their employees have made difficult decisions and accepted tough concessions in order to keep their jobs and

companies afloat. On the other hand, public entities have relied on bailout monies from the federal government to forestall the really tough decisions. That largesse is now gone and the real financial situations are coming to the forefront. Kansas is $550 million in the hole, and no state bailout is coming from Washington. In the last two state administrations, government significantly expanded its size and scope but did not increase its ability to pay for that increase in the same manner. Some say, “We shouldn’t try to balance our budget on the backs of the public employees.” Should we just eliminate their jobs? Close down departments? Are public employees exempt from the budget-cutting measures that private industry has had to make? Do they get to remain “sacred” on the backs of the taxpayer? Too often, public entities have chosen the easy path by raising taxes, fees and rates, rather than face fiscal reality and responsibility. Enough! To the state, county, city and school board: What part of “you are broke” don’t you understand? Ken Meyer, Lawrence

Missing story To the editor: I just finished reading the Friday paper, and imagine my shock and dismay on finding NO stories about the 25th anniversary of the space shuttle tragedy. While I am sorry about the ball player losing so many family members in such a short amount of time, I feel that it didn’t exactly merit front page coverage. Or the picture on the third page of the student waiting to buy tickets to Saturday’s game. This space could have been put to better use by honoring the seven Americans who died on that horrific day. Everyone com-

plains that the Internet is ruining the world, but, hey, at least we get good news coverage on there, something we evidently can’t count on from our local paper. Rita Guy, Lawrence

Tennis lights To the editor: Although the headline read “Neighbors volley concerns,” what actually happened Thursday night was that the tennis players hit a winning volley. Of the 75 in attendance, about 65 were tennis players. The fact is that the proposal meets the requirements of the Land Development Code, Section 20-1103. The city has already granted variances for other sports’ lights. Variances allowed 90-, 75- and 65-foot tall poles for baseball, football, soccer and softball. The tennis court lights will not require a variance, because they meet the 60-foot maximum allowed in 20-1103. We have been without lights for two years. Tennis is currently the fastest growing sport in America. We invite everyone to come and play because we are a friendly bunch. The neighborhood however, doesn’t seem so friendly. The church has numerous signs telling people to stay out of their parking lot. Fences have been installed to make sure no one walks to a baseball game from 22nd Street. We have been loudly accused of cursing. There are more sounds of joy and camaraderie coming from those courts than profanity. There is no connection between drainage issues and tennis lights. Taxpayers have spent $3 million on drainage projects in this neighborhood to bolster property values. There is no proof that proximity to recreational facilities decreases home values.

It is good that the city listens to the neighbors, but it must not kowtow to a small vocal group. Do what is best for the most people and least expensive for the taxpayers. Bud and Kay Pettit, Lawrence Tennis Association

Kobach smear To the editor: In its Jan. 30 issue, the JournalWorld quotes Kris Kobach: “The Southern Poverty Law Center has been saying negative things about me for a long time …” and the group has “basically become a left-wing smear organization.” The first sentence is true, and those “negative things” are based on undisputed facts. Kobach’s second sentence is blatantly false. Over the past 30 years the SPLC has won legal battles for the rights of minorities, children, prisoners and immigrants. It has successfully sued a virulent Ku Klux Klan branch and other hate groups for their violent acts, driving some out of business. It continues its legal and educational battle for otherwise powerless victims of illegal discrimination and violence. Please read the online record to understand how Kobach’s statement makes him a one-man smear group. Haskell Springer, Lawrence

KANSAS 88, TEXAS TECH 66

Chilly reception

KU rolls in ‘dead’ arena

Tom Keegan tkeegan@ljworld.com

Jayhawks restore normalcy

By Gary Bedore gbedore@ljworld.com

LUBBOCK, TEXAS — The atmosphere in Texas Tech’s United Spirit Arena was not exactly electric on Tuesday night. “Dead,” is how Kansas University junior Marcus Morris described the Red Raiders’ building, which had just 9,055 fans in the seats for the Jayhawks’ 88-66 victory. Not many fans braved a bitterly cold, wintry night, not exactly typical for Texas. ● For more “It was hard on Kansas’ to get premethodical pared,” Morris dismantling added. “For of Texas Tech, what we’re including a used to ... every photo gallery, game is message packed. The boards, The history here of Keegan Ratcoach (Bill) ings and Self not winmore, go to ning ... we KUsports.com expected it to be a packed house. It wasn’t.” The Jayhawks didn’t exactly come out without energy. KU rolled to leads of 17-4, 23-8 and 30-12. Kansas led, 50-29, at halftime and coasted to its 21st win in 22 tries. KU improved to 6-1 in league play. Tech, meanwhile, dropped to 11-12, 3-5. It marked Self’s first victory as KU coach in Lubbock after three defeats. “We discussed it,” Self said of KU not winning in Lubbock since 2003. “I remember last time we were here afterwards chewing our guy, saying, ‘Oh by the way, Oklahoma lost at Missouri. Congrats, you guys are Big 12 champs.’ It wasn’t a euphoric locker room. We needed to win here because we hadn’t done it yet.” Of the lack of fans, Self said: “Our guys ... we’ve got a unique group. They are spoiled. They play better when there’s an atmosphere. Tonight with the weather, there wasn’t going to be an atmosphere. I’m sure it hurt Tech, but it didn’t help us much, either. I didn’t think we played with unbelievable emotion, but were efficient.” Marcus Morris scored 18 points, while Thomas Robinson had 17 (with nine boards), Josh Selby 14 points, Brady Morningstar 12, Markieff Morris 11 (with 12 boards) and Mario Little nine. “It came up a few times,” Robinson said of Self ’s squads never winning in Lubbock. “It’s nothing we based our game plan on. Of course we were aware of it. Coach has done so much for

KU football to reveal speedy class today By Matt Tait mtait@ljworld.com

It’s not quite Bill Murray in the movie “Groundhog Day,” but it’s close. Throughout most of the recruiting period for the Class of 2011, one aspect kept popping up with nearly all of the players Kansas University football coach Turner Gill was targeting. Speed, speed and more speed became a recurring theme of the players who orally committed to

Kansas, and, because of it, Gill is in position to announce a recruiting class that’s on the brink of cracking the top 30 in the nation. “I would say, on paper, it’s one of the top two classes KU has had in the last 10 years,” said Rivals.com recruiting analyst Jon Kirby. “What stands out? Athleticism and speed, there’s no doubt. There are just a lot of guys that can really move, and there’s some explosion there and serious athleticism.” Pegged by Rivals as the 33rd-

best class in the country, KU football officials will man the fax machines bright and early today — Groundhog Day — waiting to receive the first letters of intent. Linebacker Jake Love, of Tonkawa, Okla., is the first future Jayhawk scheduled to sign today. He’ll join KU at 7 a.m. at Tonkawa High, just a minute before offensive lineman Luke Luhrsen, of Wheaton, Ill., who is slated to sign at 7:01 a.m. at Warrenville South High. This year’s class features two

four-star prospects: running back Darrian Miller, of Blue Springs, Mo., and “athlete” Anthony Pierson, of East St. Louis (Ill.) High. The rest of the class is made up of 21 three-star prospects and three two-star guys. By position, the class includes six offensive linemen, five linebackers, four defensive backs, three running backs, two defensive ends, two wide receivers, two quarterbacks and a kicker.

LUBBOCK, TEXAS — Snow colored this southwestern town white, the wind-chill dropped below zero, and a Betty White story with photos was trending higher on Yahoo! than a Heidi Klum feature and photo gallery. Just when I was convinced I had either entered the opposite world Seinfeld character George Costanza invented or brain freeze had warped the planet, order was restored by the Kansas University basketball team. In the opposite world, Kansas would have stood on the perimeter, fired jumpers and hoped for the best. Instead, the Jayhawks took the easy path to victory and threw the ball inside for easy buckets Texas Tech had no chance of contesting. At least the Jayhawks did that in taking target practice from point-blank range in building an insurmountable early lead on the way to an 88-66 victory inside spirit-less United Spirit Arena. Kansas had such an overwhelming advantage in size, skill and quickness on the interior, and it wasted no time in executing the game plan, a big part of which was not hurrying. Pass, pass, pass, moving the defense that way, this way and back that way, entry pass, easy bucket. Big lead. By the 5:53 mark of the first half, Kansas had a 41-19 advantage, and the portion of the 9,055 who purchased tickets and braved the cold to use them grew awfully quiet. The methodical pummeling that led to a 50-29 halftime lead featured Marcus Morris (18 points), Thomas Robinson (17 points, nine boards) and Markieff Morris (11 points, 12 boards) turning entry passes from Brady Morningstar, Josh Selby and Tyshawn Taylor — the guard trio combined for 11 assists and two turnovers — into easy buckets. “The way that Tech guards, which is the way a lot of people guard, is they try to deny you the ball in the post,” Kansas coach Bill Self said. “If that’s the case, we just want to be patient and give the ball a chance to get to the second and third side, so maybe we can isolate. It’s not very hard (to deny the post) on Please see JAYHAWKS, page 4B

Blog, chat highlight coverage Today is Signing Day 2011, and KUsports.com will be there bright and early to provide updates throughout the day. In addition to Matt Tait’s “Tale of the Tait” signing-day blog, which will track the progress of the future Jayhawks scheduled to sign national letters of intent, we’ll also provide video links, coverage from Kansas University coach Turner Gill’s news conference and a live chat with Phil Ford, an offensive lineman from Bishop Miege High.

Royals hire former player Aikens as minor-league coach KANSAS CITY, MO. — Willie Mays Aikens, who went from World Series star to federal prison inmate, has returned to baseball. The 56-year-old Aikens was hired Tuesday as a minor-league coach by the Kansas City Royals and will work out of their complex in Surprise, Ariz. Aikens hit four home runs for the Royals in their 1980 Series loss to Philadelphia. He later served almost 14 years on gun, bribery and cocaine charges, and his case was often cited as an argument against the mandatory sentencing guidelines then in place. Aikens was released from federal custody in June 2008 and had said he hoped to get back into the sport that made him famous. “Royals fans are well aware of Willie’s background and what troubles he has overcome in his life,” said Scott Sharp, Kansas City’s director of minor-league operations. “We feel confident that his story and experiences will serve as a positive influence to all the young players in our organization that he will coach and mentor.”

MLB Ramirez, Damon officially join Rays ST. PETERSBURG, FLA. — The Tampa Bay Rays are counting on Manny Ramirez and Johnny Damon to help them remain competitive in baseball’s toughest division.

NFL Ho-hum media day for QBs ARLINGTON, TEXAS — Other than asking for the heat to be turned up in the billion-dollar stadium, Ben Roethlisberger puts a happy face on a snowy media day. The Steelers’ quarterback deflected questions about his suspension Tuesday, stressing his desire to be a role model and praised just about anyone involved in this Super Bowl. Aaron Rodgers wasn’t any more revealing during the Packers’ one-hour session inside Cowboys Stadium, a haven from the kind of weather Pittsburgh and Green Bay shrug about, but that freaks out North Texas. Roethlisberger said the wintry mix that virtually shut down the area “would be a dusting back home.” Rodgers concurs, adding “We’ve been in a lot of weather like this, but back in Green Bay.”

Hornets 97, Wizards 89 N E W O R L E A N S — Jason Smith scored a career-high 20 points in a rare starting role, and New Orleans defeated Washington on Tuesday night, dropping the Wizards to 0-25 on the road. Chris Paul had 15 points and nine assists, and Trevor Ariza had 16 points for New Orleans, which snapped a two-game skid. Smith was starting for center Emeka Okafor, whose left oblique muscle strain kept him out for the first time in 306 games. While the Hornets were without a starter averaging a double-double in points and rebounds, the 7-foot Smith, normally a reserve power forward, looked comfortable filling in and hit his first nine shots.

KU women turn focus to Colorado By Matt Tait mtait@ljworld.com

Talk about good timing. In search of a victory to snap its five-game conference losing skid, the Kansas University women’s basketball team will welcome the one Big 12 opponent it has managed to beat this season to Allen Fieldhouse at 7 tonight, when the Jayhawks play host to Colorado. CU enters tonight’s contest at 11-9 overall and 2-5 in the Big 12. The Buffs come in at 0-5 on the road, including 0-3 in league road games. The last time these two met, Jan. 12 in Boulder, Colo., a balanced KU attack led the Jayhawks (14-7, 1-6) to a 68-58 victory. Junior forward Aishah Sutherland scored 15 points to lead Kansas, while sophomores Carolyn Davis (12) and Monica Engelman (11) also functioned as offensive threats. Freshman Keena Mays and senior Krysten Boogaard just missed reaching double f ig ures, scoring nine and eight, respectively. At this point in the season, however, it’s not about balanced scoring, winning the battle on the boards or taking away an opponent’s top scoring threat. Instead, it’s about effort, something KU coach Bonnie Henrickson praised one of her less-heralded starters for after last Saturday’s loss at Kansas State. Despite scoring just f ive points in 36 minutes, senior guard Marisha Brown was the first player Henrickson complimented during the

Anthony Pierson, RB, 5-11, 175, 4-star This East St. Louis (Ill.) High running back was recruited by Kansas as an “athlete” and is ranked by Rivals.com as one of the top eight “athletes” available in this year’s class. He’s also the fourth-ranked player in Pierson Illinois. Previously committed to Missouri but decommitted in November and chose Kansas in December. The blazingfast back who’s a threat to score from anywhere on the field tapped the Jayhawks over Kansas State, Missouri, Illinois, Iowa, and Arkansas.

Collin Garrett, LB, 6-1, 205, 3-star This all-state selection from West Brook High in Beaumont, Texas, comes to KU on the heels of two monster seasons. Recorded 137 tackles as a junior and followed that up with 155 tackles this season. The strong senior year led to Garrett being named defensive MVP in his district. Clocked in the 4.5-second range in the 40, Garrett has serious speed and projects as an outside linebacker in college. Chose KU over Houston, Miami (Ohio), Mississippi, North Texas, Rice, Tulane, Tulsa and UTEP. Ben Goodman, DE, 6-2, 225, 3-star Committed to KU two days after teammate Collin Garrett pledged his services to the Jayhawks. Goodman is a three-time, all-district defensive-end selection from West Brook High in Beaumont, Texas, and is one of the most athletic players in the class. Has been clocked at 4.68 seconds in the 40yard dash and chose KU over offers from California, Houston, Louisiana Tech, Louisiana-Monroe, Miami (Ohio), North Texas, Tulane and Tulsa. Julius Green, DE, 6-7, 260, No ranking Technically a member of the Class of 2010, Green arrived at KU in January and currently is enrolled in classes and preparing for spring ball.

Spent 2010 taking one class at Houston Community College and working out. Added 30 pounds to his tall, athletic frame and is ready to make up for lost time. Chose KU over Iowa State and Louisiana Tech. Ben Heeney, LB, 6-1, 195, 3-star Ranked as the 58th-best linebacker in the nation and the 11thbest prospect in Kansas, Heeney, an outside linebacker from Hutchinson High, comes to KU from a program that has been one of the most dominant prep football teams in the state during the past decade. Reportedly orally committed to Kansas during KU’s loss to Texas A&M at home. Clocked at 4.53 seconds in the 40-yard dash, Heeney chose KU over Colorado State. Also had interest from Kansas State, Oklahoma and TCU.

Luke Luhrsen, OL, 6-5, 275, 3-star Kansas was the first school to offer Luhrsen, and that wound up going a long way with the Wheaton (Ill.) Warrenville South High prospect, who orally committed to KU two weeks after receiving an offer. Versatile lineman who can play either tackle or guard hails from the same hometown as KU offensive coordinator Chuck Long. Chose Kansas over Louisville and Bowling Green. Also received interest from Arizona, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa and Northwestern. Damon Martin, OL, 6-5, 265, 3-star One of the most physical players in the Class of 2011, Martin comes to KU from Arlington (Texas) High, where he played both guard and tackle. He projects as a tackle at KU. Chose the Jayhawks over Arizona, Memphis, New Mexico, Tulsa, Utah and Utah State.

Decided to commit to Kansas on the drive home from his official visit last May. Picked KU because of its facilities and the relationships he built with the coaches. Chose the Jayhawks over offers from Tulsa and Wyoming. Also had interest from Rice, Baylor, TCU and SMU. Alex Mueller, K, 5-10, 155, 2-star Ranked as the fifth-best place kicker in the country by kicking guru Chris Sailer, Mueller hit 11 of 14 field goals for Grapevine (Texas) High this season, including a long of 47 yards. Also averaged 61 yards on kickoffs.

Jason Hensley, LB, 6-2, 225, 3-star Widely regarded as one of the biggest sleepers in the class, Hensley comes to KU from Alma (Ark.) High with serious speed and a body already built for the college game. Athletically gifted, Hensley led his high school team in tackles in each of the past two seasons and also recorded more than 10 total sacks while being named all-conference. Chose KU over Tulsa and also was receiving serious interest from Arkansas, Oklahoma State and LSU.

Darrian Miller, RB, 5-10, 181, 4-star Signed early and arrived on campus in January. Miller is one of two four-star players in KU’s Class of 2011. After a stellar junior season at Blue Springs High put him on the map, Miller became Missouri’s alltime prep rushing leader this season and finished his high school career with Miller more than 6,500 yards. As a senior, he ran for 2,226 yards and 30 TDs. Miller originally committed to KU last March and then re-opened his recruitment. After exploring his options, which included Iowa, K-State, Minnesota, Wisconsin and others, the 22ndranked running back in the nation chose Kansas a second time in October and is currently taking classes at KU.

Marquis Jackson, WR, 6-0, 205, 3-star Like so many members of KU’s Class of 2011, Jackson’s biggest asset appears to be his speed. The first-team all-state selection from Arlington Heights High in Fort Worth, Texas, hauled in 44 passes for 1,186 yards this season and has consistently been clocked in the sub-4.5-second range in the 40yard dash. Also one of the strongest players on his high school

Bryan Peters, OL, 6-5, 305, 3-star Ranked as the 65th-best offensive lineman in the nation and the 64thbest player in California, the La Mirada (Calif.) High tackle committed to Kansas early and canceled all other visits. High school coach Mike Moschetti, a former Colorado quarterback, has said that Peters has the ability to be a pro and should have a leg up on adjusting to the college game because of the style of offense his high school team ran.

Michael Reynolds, DE, 6-4, 220, 3star Reynolds, a standout defensive end from Wichita’s Kapaun-Mt. Carmel High, committed to KU in January and quickly has become one of the most talked-about players in the class. Also an all-state baseball player and may consider playing both sports at KU. Reynolds tapped Kansas over offers from TCU, Kansas State, Oklahoma State and Indiana. Chris Robinson, DB, 5-9, 170, 3-star Naturally gifted athlete from Lake Mary (Fla.) High who committed to KU in May, Robinson fits right in with the Jayhawks’ incoming crop of speed. Clocked at 4.43 seconds in the 40, Robinson was the fastest guy on his high school team and could compete for the same title at Kansas. Chose KU over Georgia Southern, Louisiana-Lafayette and UConn. Also received late interest from Ole Miss. Adonis Saunders, DB, 5-11, 185, 2-star Played a key role in one of the most successful prep programs in Kansas (Olathe North) for the past two seasons. Played both ways as a senior, starting at cornerback and wide receiver. Chose Kansas over Iowa State and New Mexico State. JaCorey Shepherd, WR, 5-11, 170, 3-star Shepherd is another player in the Class of 2011 who backed out of a previous commitment to sign with the Jayhawks. Originally committed to Iowa, the speedy wideout from Horn High in Mesquite, Texas, switched his choice to KU in July. Shepherd is ranked by Rivals.com as the 82nd-best wide receiver in the class. Victor Simmons, DB, 6-1, 185, 3-star Played quarterback for Olathe North High for two years, leading the Eagles to a state title in 2009 and a state runner-up trophy in 2010. Projects as a defensive back — likely a safety — at the college level. Clocked at 4.52 seconds in the 40-yard dash, Simmons is a dynamic athlete with a good frame. Chose KU over interest from KState and Nebraska. Dreamius Smith, RB, 6-1, 210, 3-star One of the first players from the Class of 2011 to commit to Kansas, Smith has been on the Jayhawks’ commit list since late March. As a junior at Wichita Heights, the 44th-ranked running back in the nation ran for more than 1,300 yards and helped Heights reach the state title game. As a senior, Smith outdid himself, finishing the season on top by avenging last year’s loss in the state title game with a victory over Olathe North. In that one, Smith ran for 286 yards and four touchdowns on 17 carries. Chose KU over early interest from K-State, Nebraska and Oklahoma State.

Red Raiders powerless against KU ————

Tech coach says twins in particular had an answer for his every move By Jesse Newell jnewell@ljworld.com

L UBBOCK , T EXAS — It took Texas Tech coach Pat Knight all of 47 seconds to realize his defensive plan against Kansas University forward Marcus Morris wasn’t going to work. After watching Morris hit his team’s first two shots — both in the lane — Knight screamed during defensive possession three to start double-teaming the post.

Problem was, even the switch didn’t shut down KU’s frontcourt in an 88-66 victory on Tuesday night at United Spirit Arena. “They made some tough shots when we doubled,” Knight said. “So now, ‘Hey, let’s play zone.’ Now, they hit some threes. I couldn’t do anything else. I can’t throw anything out on the floor or anything like that.” Barring a chair toss — his father, Bob, might have been proud — Pat Knight said there

were few things the Red Raiders could have done to slow down the Jayhawks. KU made six of its first seven shots to take an early 134 advantage. Knight said the beginning of the Jayhawks’ first half was as good of a start as he’s seen. “They got rolling there,” Knight said. “I mean, they were just on fire. “Really, the game was pretty much over after the first five minutes.”

Morris paced KU early, scoring 11 points on 5-for-5 shooting in the first 13 minutes. “We were trying to double him, but he was just making his moves too quick,” TTU guard John Roberson said. “We really couldn’t get there in time.” Markieff Morris also made his first four shots, which included two dunks and a three-pointer. “They don’t even need uniforms. They’re both the

same player,” Knight said of the Morris twins. “It doesn ’ t m a t t e r. It g o t t o t h e point where, ‘ H e y, whichever one goes down low, you take him.’ It doesn’t matter, because they both can do the same things.” Knight said KU was harder to guard this year than past seasons because of the twins’ versatility. With former Kansas player Cole Aldrich, the coach said he at least knew that the cen-

ter would always be on the block. The Morris twins, though, can screen and go to the block, or they can also screen and fade out for a perimeter shot. Knight also has seen growth from the brothers. “There’s none of that B.S. with them, talking trash,” Knight said. “They just go out and perform. (KU coach) Bill (Self ) has done a good job with those guys. Boy, they’re tough.”

us. We had to come here and break that curse if you call it that.” Morningstar — he had 10 points the first half — noted that it was a bit surprising there was no full house to watch the No. 2-ranked Jayhawks. “Sometimes you have to learn to create your own energy,” Morningstar said. “I was a little surprised when I walked on the court and didn’t see I was a a full house. It little happens sometimes surprised when the weather is when I bad. You’ve walked on got to create the court your own and didn’t energy. Starting the game see a full and shooting house.” like we did (57.9 percent — KU’s Brady f irst half ) Morningstar really helped a lot.” Freshman Selby, who hit six of 12 shots with four assists, noted the atmosphere “shocked” him. “The history between Kansas and Texas Tech ... coach Self never winning here ... I thought it’d be more pumped,” he said. “We were shocked, but had to play with confidence.” Selby said he has been a new player since a talk with Self after the Texas game. “It helped my confidence,” he said. “Since then, I’ve been fine.” Is he back to the “old KANSAS GUARD ELIJAH JOHNSON (15) DEFENDS Texas Tech’s John Roberson. Selby?” “I know people are used to me dunking more. I’ll get back to it,” he said with a smile. KU will meet Nebraska at 3 p.m. Saturday in Lincoln, Neb.

KU ATHLETIC DIRECTOR SHEAHON ZENGER watches the Jayhawks warm up prior to tipoff. Tuesday was Zenger’s first official day on the job.

NOTEBOOK Zenger on the job New Kansas University athletic director Sheahon Zenger spent his first official day on the job Tuesday with KU’s basketball team. “I am thrilled to be on board,” said Zenger, who was introduced as KU’s A.D. on Jan. 2 and split time the past month in Normal, Ill., where he completed his stint as Illinois State’s A.D., and Lawrence. “As I said at the press conference, you take it one day at a time, one person at a time, one step at a time,” Zenger added. He said the past month was a bit challenging. “The logistics of it are kind of hard on the body,” he said. “I am one who enjoys driving, working behind the steering wheel, making phone calls and whatnot. The driving back and forth was a perfect time for me. It was a little strange carrying two briefcases, one from each school. The people at the two institutions made it real easy.” Of Tuesday, he said: “There’s a lot of different ways to spend your first day (on the job). To spend it with the men’s basketball team, the coaching staff and administrators on the road lets you immediately feel like part of the family.”

the first side. It’s little bit harder on the second, and on the third side, it’s a lot harder.” Kansas won’t face many teams as incapable as Texas Tech of putting up a fight on the inside, but even against tougher opponents, having Self’s inside-outside philosophy so thoroughly reinforced by the early dominance can’t do anything but help this team. “We were pretty patient there for a while and were able to get the ball in pretty deep and pretty tight,” Self said. “That’s not anything new. We try to do that every game. That’s our strategy each and every game.” As is almost always the case with college basketball teams that storm to big leads, the second half had its sloppy stretches. Instead of staying with the patient philosophy designed to work the ball inside, the Jayhawks were quick to put up shots coming out of the break. A timeout later, they were back to peppering the paint. And then there was the normal high percentage of fast-break breakdowns. Think back to your youth basketball coach gassing

The guy in the middle either stops at the foul line and passes to the guy on the left or the right, or he keeps the ball and takes it all the way in for a bucket. Not in today’s game. It’s, take it too far for a charge or throw an unnecessarily high-risk pass and have it deflected. “You get five of those a game, you’ve got to come

away with 10 points,” Self bemoaned. “We’re coming away with two.” Self took the blame, saying he needs to devote more time to that weakness in practice. He will, and they’ll get it right. The 21-1 team is getting better, and the Big 12, even earlier than usual, has turned into a two-team race for the title. At the moment, Kansas, the No. 2 team in the nation, is running second in the Big 12.

Calculate the amount of salt in your diet Q: A:

Why does salt make food taste so good?

Shared by Food and Health Communications, while there are clear health benefits to reducing our consumption of table salt (i.e., sodium chloride), doing so and still enjoying our food requires some strategy. This is because table salt, or “sodium chloride,” really does make some foods taste better, and it is the only nontoxic substance which, when tasted alone in water, produces a purely salty flavor, according to Dale Vitale with the chemistry and physics department at Kean University. According to Vitale’s scientific research, “This is not surprising because we perceive saltiness through receptors in our mouths that evolved specifically to do so. Nevertheless, there are palatable strategies that can help you cut your salt intake.” One of them is to enhance salt’s “saltiness” with other tastants. All of the other four flavors — sour, bitter, sweet, and umami — affect your ability to taste a given amount of salt, but only one does so in a uniform way: sour. Sour flavors result from acids in foods, and two common ones are citric and tartaric acids. Citric acid is often used in cooking in the form of lemon juice, while tartaric acid can be obtained from wine making suppliers. Many of us like the effect of lemon juice on the taste of fish and wine without tartaric acid isn’t wine. But fewer are aware that these acids can increase the saltiness of sodium chloride. That is, if you add just enough lemon juice to taste its sour flavor, less salt is needed than there would be without the juice. Tartaric acid has a similar effect, but can enhance saltiness in amounts below our ability to detect its sour taste. In cooking, this means you can get the same level of saltiness with less salt if you add a “tastable” amount of lemon juice or a pinch of cream of tartaric acid (cream of tartar). One caution though, the saltiness of sodium chloride also depends on the food in which it is used. Here are a list of choices for acidic flavors in the kitchen:

Cooking Q&A

Susan Krumm skrumm@oznet.ksu.edu

● lemon juice ● lime juice ● tangerine/orange juice ● red wine vinegar ● rice wine vinegar ● balsamic vinegar ● white wine ● cream of tartar ● citric acid ● tartaric acid

Tips for using acid: Add near the end of cooking and allow to simmer to concentrate and mellow the flavor. When using citrus fruit, it is a nice touch to include the grated rind, too. So, how does your pantry score? Give yourself 5 points for each of these items: ● canned beans, low sodium ● canned tomatoes, low sodium ● low sodium, low-fat soup ● fruits packed in water ● tuna packed in water ● low sodium veggies ● pasta (plus 10 if whole grain) ● plain rice (plus 10 if whole grain) ● oatmeal ● barley Deduct 5 points for each: ● cookies ● sugared cereal ● chips ● rice mix ● pasta mix ● cake mix crackers Here is a recipe that you may want to try that is very low in sodium:

LIME RICE & VEGETARIAN CHILI 1 cup brown rice 2 cups water Dash of coriander, garlic and pepper 2 limes, cut in wedges 1 can no-salt kidney beans, undrained 1 can no-salt diced tomatoes with basil and oregano, undrained 1 tablespoon minced onion 1/4 cup tomato paste

out in the open air to dry and come to room temperature. Then, I started on the glaze. In a mixing bowl, I combined: a cup of Hoisin sauce, a cup of honey, a teaspoon of ginger (fresh is best, but I only had dried), a teaspoon of salt, a few cranks of cracked pepper, a teaspoon of sriracha, a teaspoon of sesame oil, two tablespoons of soy sauce and two tablespoons of brown sugar. Then I chopped up two large cloves of fresh garlic into a rough mince. Because the garlic is going to cook on the meat for so long, it will get really sweet and flavorful, and the big chunks will add a lot to the finished product. Some people would say you should add a little red food coloring to this to get that beautiful red coating you see in Chinese delis and restaurants. I skipped this, because I feared what Mr. Meat and Potatoes would say if he saw a hunk of neon red pork lying on his dinner plate. Then plop your meat into the roasting pan, and pour sauce all over it. Reserve about 1/3 of the sauce for basting later. I let it rest there for a few minutes, so the sauce would start to really stick to the meat, and then I picked it up and put it on the rack, and back into the roaster. Then I put the roast into the very hot oven for 30 minutes.

After the half-hour of fastcooking expired, I removed the pan from the oven and turned it down to 225 degrees. While I waited for the oven to cool off (I left the door cracked open, which really helps) I basted the meat again with some more of the sauce. Then I put it back into the oven for 2.5 hours, basting occasionally with more sauce. The goal is for the sauce to cook onto the meat and make a sticky “rind” and then put more on, thus thickening the gooey outer part. When your pork is done, let it rest a few minutes before you slice it. I would like to note that I tend to leave pork just a teeny tiny bit rare, and I’ve never gotten sick. Anymore, the pork we buy at the store is not dangerous even if it’s a little bit underdone in the middle. Pork Char Siu ingredients: ● 1 pork loin, about 4 pounds ● 1 cup Hoisin sauce ● 1 cup honey ● 1 teaspoon of ginger ● 1 teaspoon of salt ● A few cranks of cracked pepper ● 1 teaspoon of sriracha ● 1 teaspoon of sesame oil ● 2 tablespoons of soy sauce ● 2 tablespoons of brown sugar ● 2 large cloves of garlic To go with this delicious hunk of meat, I made cashew rice. It’s an easy accompaniment and really does bring a little more excitement than regular rice.

PRICES GOOD FEBRUARY 2ND THRU FEBRUARY 8TH, 2011 THURSDAY ONLY! SPECIAL

Cook rice, water and coriander/garlic/pepper in pan or rice cooker until done, about 30 minutes. Add the juice of one lime, fluff with a fork and allow to stand. Meanwhile, cook chili by adding kidney beans, diced tomatoes, minced onion, tomato paste, water and the rest of the seasonings to a medium skillet; bring to a boil then lower to a simmer. To serve the chili, mold the rice in a small cup and place in the center of a bowl. Surround with chili. Garnish with lime wedges. Makes 4 (2 cup) servings. Optional: add cooked turkey, chicken, or corn to the chili.

As you know, spices and herbs can also enhance the flavor of food in a different way. To find out more about “Seasoning with Spices & Herbs,” plan to attend the presentation by Antonette Brecheisen at 9:30 a.m. Feb. 11 at the Dreher Family 4-H Building at the Douglas County Fairgrounds, 2110 Harper St. With years of experience in lowering sodium in her foods, Antonette will share how the use of herbs and spices can help cut fat, sugar and salt in food preparations and save money by adding flavor to simple and inexpensive foods. She will also discuss flavor and food combinations, substitutions, how much seasoning to use, and how to store herbs and spices. This program is co-sponsored by the Douglas County Family and Community Education Council and KState Research and Extension in Douglas County. A $3 fee to cover the samples of food will be collected at the door. To register for this program, call 843-7058 by 5 p.m. Monday. — Susan Krumm is an Extension agent in family and consumer sciences with K-State Research and Extension-Douglas County, 2110 Harper St. She can be reached at 843-7058.

The old days I would have made fried rice, with bacon and an egg, but hey, I’m trying to be better. For cashew rice, begin by melting a small pat of butter in the bottom of a saucepan and adding the rice. Stir around to “toast” the rice for just a couple of minutes. Then add two cups of chicken broth, a teaspoon of cumin, a teaspoon of coriander, a pinch of ginger, salt and cracked black pepper. Bring it to a boil. When it’s boiling, reduce the heat to medium low and toss in a handful of cashews (halves and parts are fine for this application) and cook until the rice is soft, about 15 minutes. When you serve it, give it a sprinkle of cilantro for a little color and extra flavor. I also cooked a little edamame, and yes, I know that’s not Chinese, but it’s incredibly healthy and seemed like a good complement to this meal. Clearly, my pork char siu is not exactly how someone’s Chinese grandma would make it. And I didn’t have any mung beans to serve alongside it. But I promise you, it will make you feel better about staying in the house for 48 hours at a time. And your family will love it and be very impressed with your hunk o’ pork with its thick delicious glaze. And when your poor baby is sick sick sick with RSV, you’ll take a little happiness where you can get it, even if it comes in the form of a bastardized pork recipe.

For The Associated Press

Something new is on tap on the bar scene as adventurous mixologists brew up beer cocktails. “Beer as an ingredient can offer such a wide variety of flavors,” says Jacob Grier, a drinks blogger who tends bar at Metrovino in Portland, Ore. “They can be sweet and malty. They can have chocolate roast-y notes. It can be a great complement to a cocktail.” For most people, beer and liquor have never been more than nodding acquaintances. Sure, maybe you’ve had a shot with a beer chaser here, or, in more reckless moments, a boilermaker — in which the shot glass of liquor is dropped directly into the pint of beer. But the new trend goes far beyond that, with mixologists looking for creative new ways to blend beer and booze. Grier was introduced to the beer cocktail after watching Canadian beer writer Stephen Beaumont concoct some at a cocktail event a few years ago. Beaumont got his inspiration from northern France, where he says beer cocktails

are surprisingly common. “Once I tried a couple over there, I just had to give making my own creations a shot,” he said in an e-mail. He sees beer cocktails falling into three categories — beer blends; beer mixed with something else, such as juice, spirits or other flavoring ingredients; or beer used as a flavoring ingredient in a cocktail. When mixing beers with spirits, it’s important to look for harmony, like the fruitiness of rums and most IPAs, or the aromatics of some blonde ales and gins, says Beaumont. Grier finds gin and herbal flavors work really well because they have the aromatics to stand up to beer. Grier, along with Yetta Vorobik, owner of The Hop and Vine beer bar in Portland and Ezra Johnson-Greenough, who runs The New School beer blog, have organized two Brewing Up Cocktails events and have more planned. One of his favorite recipes was the brewer’s bramble, a twist on the bramble cocktail that used a tart beer instead of lemon juice and syrup. The drink was made with gin, blackberry liqueur and The

Martha Stewart plans new baking show The oven is on, Martha Stewart is in the kitchen, and class is in session. Stewart is adding a new show dedicated to teaching the basics of baking to the growing list of programs her company produces for the Hallmark Channel, the cable network to which she moved her daily show, “The Martha Stewart Show,” in the fall.

The format of the series — Stewart in the kitchen walking viewers step-by-step through recipes — is at odds with much of the most popular food television today, which favors competitions and other realitybased programs. “I don’t think that I was put here on earth to sing and dance while I’m cooking,” she says. “I’m a good teacher, and I think that this show shows that and really accentuates how important a good recipe is and how exacting a science baking is.”

Bartenders tap new inspiration: beer cocktails By Michelle Locke

| 7B.

MAKE YOURSELF a Florida snakebite. Beer and cider combine with the citrus notes of Cointreau to make this tasty cocktail that is part of the new trend of using beer as a drink ingredient.

This update of the classic blend of beer and hard cider gets its name from the splash of Cointreau, which gives the drink a fine citrusy finish.

Bruery’s Hottenroth Berliner Weisse, though many sour beers would work. One of Beaumont’s creations is the green devil, which uses absinthe, gin and Duvel, a Belgian beer. “I’d been wanting to build a cocktail around Duvel for some time. Then, while preparing dinner one night, inspiration

Divide the beer between 2 tall serving glasses. Slowly pour half of the cider into each. Finish each with half of the Cointreau. Stir gently just to mix. Serves 2. — Recipe from AP Food Editor J.M. Hirsch

OFF-SIDES,

These Super Bowl treats feature unusual ingredients

OFF-CENTER S

trange ingredients aren’t anything new. There are TV shows, blogs and columns all devoted to the ubiquitous idea of secret, strange or outlandish ingredients. So, we thought it’d be a super challenge to create a Super Bowl buffet using special ingredients or run-of-the-mill ingredients in surprising ways. Some of the ingredients are ones you’d normally see on a Super Bowl spread, including potato chips and cheesy curls, but they aren’t used how you’d expect them to be. In this case, both those salty snacks are used as a base for some pretty decadent desserts. Take a look at our “Super Bowl Challenge” foods and give a new recipe a whirl before watching the Packers and the Steelers battle it out in Super Bowl XLV at 5:30 p.m. Sunday on Fox. ● See recipes on page 7B.

CHALLENGE FOOD: POTATO CHIPS Potato Chip Cookies

! Potato Chip Cookies 2 1/2 cups potato chips*, crushed (measure after crushing) 1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed 1/4 cup granulated sugar 1 egg 1/4 cup milk 1 teaspoon vanilla 1 cup all-purpose flour 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 1/2 cup pecans or roasted peanuts, chopped

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine sugars, egg, milk and vanilla and whisk together to combine in medium mixing bowl. In small bowl, stir together flour and baking powder to combine. Add dry ingredients to batter, then mix in the potato chips and nuts. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto a greased or parchment-lined baking sheet, allowing space for the cookies to spread. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes, or until lightly browned. *Thin, crispy potato chips work best. Avoid low-salt or flavored varieties.

The quarantined mom opts for Pork Char Siu It

is no secret that I unabashedly bastardize recipes. It’s not that I am not aware that the authentic version of the dish exists, or that I have disrespect for the culture that produced it. I simply am a person who has to be flexible in the kitchen. And I don’t mean doing the splits, although I do happen to be very close to accomplishing that feat again. I mean, I often have to work with what I have. I have to consider my family’s tastes, my “calorie restrictions” and what is in the cabinet at any given moment.

“THE FLYING FORK”

a blog by Megan Stuke There was a time when I never would have allowed this to happen. Not only was I rule-bound when it came to recipes, but I believed I would be mocked and scorned if I cooked arroz con

pollo and didn’t use short-grained rice. Now, I’m just happy if there is rice in the cupboard when I need it, regardless if it’s basmati or jasmine or brown or any other kind. So I ask that you bear that in mind as you peruse today’s recipe. You see, last week my child was sick. RSV sick. And if you know about RSV, you know that we could not leave the house for fear of infecting every other child in a five-mile radius of us. It was Quarantine City at the Stuke house. I stayed home from work part of the

time, and during that time, I played Susie Homemaker. I cleaned, I wore pearls, I cooked dinner for my husband — the kind I never usually cook because it takes too long. I had a hankering for Chinese BBQ pork, otherwise known as pork char siu, and since it’s too cold and icky to use a grill or smoker, I knew I’d have to slowcook it in the oven. This is something one could do in a crock pot, but it wouldn’t be quite the same, as the crock pot creates a lot more moisture and therefore couldn’t

create the glaze effect I had in my mind. Technically, I think you’re supposed to use a pork shoulder, but all I had was a pork loin (not a tenderloin, mind you, but the whole big loin) which is a leaner cut. I preferred the leaner cut since I am “dieting,” but for best results, I do recommend the shoulder roast. Start this way early in the day, it takes several hours to cook. I began by setting my oven to 450 degrees and setting the meat Please see CREATIVE, page 6B

Using a third party can help sort out problems Annie’s Mailbox

me that I would quit smoking as my Christmas present to them. I know these family members are only thinking of my health, and it seemed like a fair “gift.” But without my daily nicotine fix, I am feeling very grumpy, as well as angry with the relatives for getting me to make such a promise. Is it really possible to quit smoking for someone else? If so, do you have some suggestions for easing the process? anniesmailbox@creators.com — Grumpy Quitter Dear Grumpy: It is possible Dear Thrown: Bill should not have met with Mary with- to quit for someone else if the out your knowledge and motivation is strong enough, approval, but we don’t believe it is an affair. It sounds like he misses his job, wants to keep up with the gossip and enjoys her company. Unfortunately, your extreme reaction has turned it into a power struggle and a major marital crisis. Unless you want a divorce, we urge you to find a neutral third party — a counselor, clergyperson or family friend — who can mediate your disagreement and help you find a way back to each other before it’s too late.

Marcy Sugar and Kathy Mitchell

A “star” of the small screen longer than anyone could possibly care, Kate Gosselin really stretches the definition of “E! True Hollywood Story” (9 p.m., E!). But this “True” profile concentrates on that most Hollywood of traditions: divorce, as messy and public as possible. Only time will tell whether constant media exposure will have any lasting or damaging effect on the Gosselin brood. But we can be assured that a tabloid media will be on hand to chronicle their every infraction. ● “OK, campers, rise and shine, and don’t forget your booties ’cause it’s cooooold out there today.” Yes, folks, it’s Groundhog Day, time for a 24-hour marathon of the 1993 comedy “Groundhog Day” running midnight to midnight today on Encore. It’s fascinating, if not fitting, that one of the year’s least observed and insignificant holidays should have inspired such a perfect little movie shot through with subtle, even spiritual meaning. ● The ability of the History Channel to meander into nonhistorical gibberish like “Bigfoot: The Definitive Guide” (8 p.m., History) never fails to depress me. ● For the 17th year running, Turner Classic Movies celebrates the Academy Awards with a monthlong festival of Oscar-nominated and Oscar-winning movies. Tonight celebrates Jack Nicholson, the male actor most often nominated for the golden statue. Look for “Five Easy Pieces” (7 p.m.), “Terms of Endearment” (9 p.m.), “Easy Rider” (11:30 p.m.) and “The Last Detail” (1:15 a.m.). Over the course of the month, TCM will broadcast 340 films considered Oscar-worthy. ● “Friends” shut down production nearly seven years ago, but its cast is all over the dial. Look for Matthew Perry on “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” (10 p.m., Comedy Central) promoting his new Fox series “Mr. Sunshine,” debuting Feb. 9. Jay Leno welcomes Matt LeBlanc (as well as Jennifer Lawrence and Ryan Bingham) on “The Tonight Show” (10:35 p.m., NBC). LeBlanc can be seen on the funny Showtime comedy “Episodes” on Sunday nights. Courteney Cox can of course be found on her own sitcom “Cougar Town” (8:30 p.m., ABC). Lisa Kudrow serves as the executive producer of “Who Do You Think You Are,” the celebrity-genealogy series returning for a second season Friday night on NBC. And look for Jennifer Aniston to hit the promotional circuit for her upcoming movie “Just Go With It,” costarring Adam Sandler. Wherefore art thou David Schwimmer?

Tonight’s other highlights ● “American Idol” (7 p.m., Fox). ● Tony Hale guest stars as “Human Target” (8 p.m., Fox) returns to the schedule. ● Pre-dance jitters for Luke, Manny and everyone else on “Modern Family” (8 p.m., ABC). ● “Nova: Making Stuff” (8 p.m., PBS, check local listings) examines clean energy. ● An undercover agent slain on “Blue Bloods” (9 p.m., CBS). ● A tycoon (Colm Feore) becomes a suspect in a teen’s abuse on “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” (9 p.m., NBC). ● Ben’s back pages on “Off the Map” (9 p.m., ABC).

Looking forward to it.” She signed it: “Love, Mary.” Needless to say, I brought this to Bill’s attention. He admitted they’d had lunch a few times, but said signing “love” meant nothing. Bill explained that they are good friends and he finds out stuff from her, like the latest gossip. Well, Annie, to me this is obviously more than just a co-worker relationship. I told him I wanted these “dates” stopped immediately, as this relationship could only lead to trouble. He agreed to stop. Last week, Bill told me he was going to meet “Harry” for lunch. I checked his e-mail and learned that he met up with Mary. I am hurt by this betrayal. Bill now says I’m being ridiculous and he has no intention of ending the lunch dates. I am devastated. I told Bill it would be best if we separated to give both of us time to think. He says separating is absurd. How do I get rid of a husband who refuses to leave?

Mubarak won’t seek new term ————

Protesters, government supporters clash after announcement By Sarah El Deeb and Hadeel Al-Shalchi Associated Press Writers

CAIRO — President Hosni Mubarak defied a quartermillion protesters demanding he step down immediately, announcing Tuesday he would serve out the last months of his term and “die on Egyptian soil.” He said he would not seek re-election, but that did not calm Mubarak the public fury as clashes erupted between his opponents and supporters. The 82-year-old Mubarak, who has ruled the country for nearly three decades, offered little protesters had sought after a dramatic day in which a quarter-million Egyptians staged their biggest demonstration yet. And he insisted he wouldn’t have sought a fifth term in September even if the protests had never happened. Mubarak’s halfway concession — an end to his rule seven months down the road — threatened to inflame frustration and anger among protesters, who have been peaceful in recent days but have made clear they will not end their unprecedented weekold wave of demonstrations until he is out. Soon after his speech, clashes erupted between protesters and government supporters in the Mediterranean city of Alexandria, and gunshots were heard, according to footage by Al-Jazeera television. The speech was immediately derided by protesters in Cairo’s Tahrir Square. Watching his speech on a giant TV, protesters booed and waved

A GROUP OF PRO-GOVERNMENT SUPPORTERS take to the streets following Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak's speech, today in the Imbaba neighborhood of Cairo, Egypt. After Mubarak announced Tuesday he would not run for a new term in September elections but rejected protesters' demands he step down immediately and leave the country, clashes erupted between protesters and government supporters in the Mediterranean city of Alexandria and gunshots were heard, according to footage by Al-Jazeera television. their shoes over their heads at his image in a sign of contempt. “Go, go, go! We are not leaving until he leaves,” they chanted. One man screamed, “He doesn’t want to say it, he doesn’t want to say it.” In the 10-minute address, Mubarak appeared somber but spoke firmly and without an air of defeat. He said he would serve out the rest of his term working “to accomplish the necessary steps for the peaceful transfer of power. He said he will carry out amendments to rules on presidential elections. Mubarak, a former air force commander, vowed not to flee the country. “This is my dear homeland ... I have lived in it, I fought for it and defended its soil, sovereignty and interests. On its soil I will die. History will judge me and all of us.” His speech came after a visiting envoy of President Barack Obama told Mubarak that his time in office was

running out. Frank Wisner, a respected former U.S. ambassador to Egypt who is a friend of the Egyptian president, made clear to Mubarak that it is the U.S. “view that his tenure as president is coming to a close,” according to an administration official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the delicacy of the ongoing diplomacy. The United States has been struggling to find a way to ease Mubarak out of office while maintaining stability in Egypt, a key ally in the Mideast that has a 30-yearold peace treaty with Israel and has been a bulwark against Islamic militancy. Mubarak would be the second Arab leader pushed from office by a popular uprising in the history of the modern Middle East, following the ouster last month of the president of Tunisia — another North African nation. The U.S. ambassador in Cairo, Margaret Scobey,

BUSINESS AT A GLANCE

Notable ● Americans gave automakers a confidence boost in January. They bought more cars and trucks and showed a still-fragile auto industry that they were ready to replace their clunkers in 2011. Sales of cars and light trucks in the United States rose 17 percent from a year earlier to 819,895. That’s still below the 1 million sold in January 2008, before most people felt the recession’s impact, but better than the last two years, when January sales fell below 700,000. Nearly all big car companies reported double-digit gains for the month, a sign that the slow recovery in U.S. auto sales that began in 2010 remains on track. The recovery could falter if turmoil in the Middle East pushes up gas prices or unemployment stays high.

Dow above 12,000 for first time in over 2 years By David K. Randall Associated Press Writer

NEW YORK — Two years ago, the stock market was roadkill along the financial highway. Now one of the greatest bull markets in history is rolling along — maybe enough to finally get the attention of average investors. The Dow Jones industrial average closed above 12,000 for the first time in two and a half years Tuesday, putting the Great Recession even farther in the rearview mirror and erasing most of the damage it inflicted on tens of millions of retirement accounts. A broader measure of the stock market, the Standard & Poor’s 500 index, closed above 1,300 for the first time since Aug. 28, 2008. And at least one widely watched measure suggests stocks are still cheap by historical standards. The remarkable run for stocks began on March 9, 2009. The Dow stood at 6,547, its lowest point in 12 years. Since then, in the fastest climb since the Great Depression, it has risen 84 percent thanks to surging corporate prof its, the unexpected resilience of personal spending and a bond-buying intervention by the Federal Reserve that made stocks more appealing. And some of the early gains came because investors realized that stocks had fallen too far during the financial crisis. The Dow’s total return,

which assumes stock dividends were reinvested, is 92 percent. Anyone who bought an S&P 500 index fund that day in March 2009 has doubled his money, assuming dividends were reinvested. The Dow closed at 12,040.16 on Tuesday, advancing 148 points after strong corporate earnings reports and signs that the manufacturing sector had a good month in January. The S&P 500 closed at 1,307.59, up 21 points. The rebound could bring small investors back to the stock market. They have pulled nearly $245 billion out of U.S. stock mutual funds since June 2008, the last time the Dow was at 12,000, according to the Investment Company Institute. Earlier in the decade, they typically put in $145 billion a year. And if Americans believe in the stock market again, it could accelerate the economic recovery. “The lack of confidence has acted as a sedative across the economy,” says David Kelly, chief market strategist at J.P. Morgan Funds. “The Dow at 12,000 could boost the psychology of the American investor and be a more powerful stimulant than anything else in driving the next stage of this bull market.” Investors who see their stock portfolios rising will be more likely to spend money and take risks that could boost the economy, he says.

spoke by telephone Tuesday with Nobel Peace laureate Mohamed ElBaradei, the embassy said. ElBaradei, a pro-democracy advocate and one of the opposition’s most prominent leaders, has taken a key role in formulating the movement’s demands for Mubarak to step down and allow a transitional government paving the way for free elections. There was no immediate word on what he and Scobey discussed. Only a month ago, reform activists would have greeted Mubarak’s announcement with joy — many Egyptians believed Mubarak was going to run again despite health issues. But after the past week of upheaval, Mubarak’s address struck many of his opponents as inadequate. “The people have spoken. They said no to Mubarak, and they will not go back on their words,” said Saad el-Katatni, a leading member of the Muslim Brotherhood. “Enough suffering. Let him go, and leave the Egyptians to sort themselves out.” Ayman Nour, a former presidential candidate who is now a member of a committee formed to conduct any future negotiations on behalf of the protesters, said Mubarak clearly didn’t get the message. “This is a unique case of stubbornness that will end in a disaster,” he said. “It is only expected that he wasn’t going to run because of his age... He offered nothing new.” Tuesday’s protest marked a dramatic escalation that organizers said aims to drive Mubarak out by Friday. In a single day, the protesters’ numbers multiplied more than tenfold, with more than a quarter-million people flooding into Tahrir, or Liberation, Square.

2012 Democratic convention will be in Charlotte By Liz Sidoti and Mitch Weiss Associated Press Writers

C H A R L O T T E , N . C . — President Barack Obama’s selection of this Southern city for the 2012 Democratic convention signals he will try to reassemble his diverse coalition of 2008 supporters and fight for the conservativeleaning states that helped him win the White House. The Democratic National Committee announced the selection of Charlotte on Tuesday, rejecting bids by a trio of Midwestern cities hit hard by the recession — Cleveland, Minneapolis, and St. Louis — in favor of the more economically stable North Carolina. With the economy certain to dominate Obama’s re-election bid, North Carolina’s long-term industrial transformation — from tobacco, textiles and furniture to research, energy and banking — also plays into what may be the centerpiece of the Democrat’s re-election bid, a call for America to focus on innovation to compete in the changing global marketplace. The convention’s apparent theme — The People’s Convention — indicates that the president will try to rekindle the grass-roots flavor of his groundbreaking 2008 bid. “This will be a different convention, for a different time,” first lady Michelle Obama wrote to supporters Tuesday in an e-mail that disclosed the city where Democrats plan to nominate Obama and Vice President Joe Biden for a second term. She said the gathering would be “a grass-roots convention for the people” and promised to pay for it in a different way. But she provided no specifics on either point.

With the economy certain to dominate Obama’s re-election bid, North Carolina’s longterm industrial transformation ... also plays into what may be the centerpiece of the Democrat’s re-election bid, a call for America to focus on innovation to compete in the changing global marketplace. The announcement of where Obama will formally kick off his re-election campaign was the latest step in the president’s efforts pointing toward 2012. He has shifted political aides out of the White House, authorized a campaign headquarters for Chicago and started repositioning himself as a president who governs from the center of the ideological spectrum. He must try again to cobble together the voting blocs that helped him win across the country, including in such normally Republican states as North Carolina, Virginia and Indiana. He became the first Democratic presidential candidate in decades to win those. And he did it by appealing to a wide swath of voters, some of whom have since soured on him. Independent voters were critical to his victory in 2008 but have tilted away from him over the past two years. Sporadic-voting minorities and young adults who backed him in droves can’t be automatically counted on to do the same next year. Neither can people who cast ballots for the first time, or disenchanted Republicans who crossed over to vote for Obama.

TSA trying out new, more modest body scanning system By Cristina Silva Associated Press Writer

LAS VEGAS — Federal aviation officials are giving airport scanners another try. This time, they are not looking as closely under traveler’s clothes. The Transportation Security Administration on Tuesday began testing a new, more modest body scanning system at three airports. They hope it will assuage critics’ concerns that the nearly 500 full-body scanners at 78 airports reveal too much. “We believe it addresses the privacy issues that have been raised,” TSA chief John Pistole said at a news conference at Reagan National Airport in Washington, one of the airports testing the technology. The system does not involve new machines. Instead, it relies on new software. The software discards the x-ray-style image that revealed the contours of the traveler’s body — the one that left many uncomfortable at the thought of screeners being able to see them with the rough outlines of their undergarments. Now, there is just a generic image — like the chalk outline of a body at a crime scene. This is how it works: A traveler passes through the scanner. Once they step out, they can see a computer monitor. It can display a large green “OK” and the traveler

can move on. If they have something in their pockets or hidden elsewhere on their body, the outline of a body appears on the screen, and a box marks the location of the object. If someone had a wallet in a front pocket, for example, the box would appear over the hips. The box would then trigger a human pat-down search. “One of the things this does is give greater confidence to the traveling public, because they are seeing the image also. They are s e e i n g exa c t ly wh a t t h e security officer is seeing, that they can say ‘Oh, yeah, I forgot to take that piece of paper out of my pocket,’” Pistole said. “And hopefully it provides a greater deterrent to possible terrorists, who may realize ‘Ok, they’re going to see it right there. If that shows up, and I’m here, then I’m going to be caught,”’ he added. On Tuesday at one of the test sites, McCarran Interna-

tional Airport in Las Vegas, TSA workers moved through a scanner equipped with the new software in a demonstration for reporters. On some people, the scanner picked up objects in their pockets. Those carrying nothing moved through the scanner in moments. The other airport where the software will also be tested is Hartsf ield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta. If all goes well for two months, TSA can install the software to 250 of the scanners nationwide at a cost of $2.7 million. The expansion will be limited to that because the software only works on machines produced by one of the two companies that make them. TSA officials are making the decision to expand on the ability of the software to detect objects and how efficiently it can move travelers through the security checkpoints.
