Proposed amendment against health law advances By Scott Rothschild srothschild@ljworld.com

TOPEKA — A House committee on Thursday approved a proposed constitutional amendment that its supporters said would allow Kansans to ignore the federal health reform law.

“States have rights, states have sovereignty,” said Health and Human Services Committee Chair Brenda Landwehr, RWichita, who pushed for the amendment. “If we did not, we would be under a dictatorship,” she said. But opponents said the meas-

ure was inaccurate and deceiving to voters because it would lead them to believe that a state constitutional amendment could trump federal law. “States don’t have the right to nullify federal law through their own constitutions,” said Rep. Ed Trimmer, D-Winfield. “States

can no more nullify this law than they have in any situation, including civil rights.” HCR 5007 states that any person, employer or provider cannot be forced to participate in any health care system or purchase health insurance. Under the federal Patient Protection

‘Definitely extremely cold’ ... and maybe even a record

Another guilty plea to be made

bhawley@ljworld.com

It was cold — extremely cold — overnight Wednesday. But did Lawrence set a record? Well, maybe. Brian Barjenbruch, meteorologist at the National Weather Service, said the automated sensor at Lawrence Municipal Airport registered minus 15 degrees overnight Wednesday. That sensor has only been in place since 2005, and the coldest temperature measured before this week was minus 6. On the Kansas University campus, data has been recorded for more than 100 years. The record low was minus 13, set in 1905. Barjenbruch couldn’t conf irm Lawrence set a record at that station, but he said it was close. “It was def initely extremely cold,” he said. “It is infrequent to get this cold.”

Afghan army trainers relate tough mission “

American military training leaders said Thursday that the Afghanistan National Army made strides in 2010 and that it was a big step forward for the country. “There was an advancement of skills, of competence and of confidence just in their own ability to do the job well,” said Lt. Col. Michael Loos, commander of the Army’s 2nd Battalion of the 22nd Infantry Regiment for the 10th Mountain Division. Loos and Cmd. Sgt. Maj. Mio Franceschi spoke about their 12-month training mission to about 60 people Thursday afternoon at the Dole Institute of Politics on Kansas University’s West Campus. They said it was a tough transition as the battalion was preparing for combat in Iraq before commanders were told just months before they left that they

The battalion was among the first to enter Afghanistan early in 2010 as part of a troop

surge President Barack Obama ordered. Still, Loos, in his fourth Afghanistan deployment, said he saw more progress last year especially with basic recruits and officers as his battalion trained more than 60,000 Afghan soldiers.

“I feel that individually and organizationally as a battalion that we made a huge difference tactically, person-to-person, and strategically,” Loos said. Franceschi said he could see a difference in 12 months, for example, in the way the Afghan soldiers marched. “It was ugly” at first, he said. Then toward the end Americans would more often stand back and make spot corrections as the Afghans took the lead. Please see AFGHAN, page 2A

The onetime leader of fundraising for Kansas Athletics Inc. plans to plead guilty later this month in federal court for his role in a tickets scam that cost the department millions of dollars. Ben Kirtland, former associate athletics director for development, is scheduled to enter his guilty plea during a hearing at 10 a.m. Feb. 24 in U.S. District Court in Wichita. Kirtland would become the seventh and Kirtland f inal former athletics employee or consultant charged in the case to plead guilty. The case has led to changes in how tickets are distributed and preceded the accelerated retirement of Lew Perkins as athletic director. Kirtland had been scheduled to stand trial beginning March 8 on a charge of conspiracy to commit wire fraud. But U.S. District Judge Wesley Brown has agreed to schedule a change-of-plea hearing, at Kirtland’s request. Already having pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit wire fraud: ● Charlette Blubaugh, former head of the athletics ticket office. ● Tom Blubaugh, her husband and a former consultant. ● Kassie Liebsch, a former systems analyst who had taken over for Charlette Blubaugh running the tickets office. ● Rodney Jones, former assistant athletic director in charge of Williams Fund. Each of the co-conspirators face up to 20 years in prison, fines of up to $250,000 and are on the hook for a monetary judgment of $2 million — a total ordered to be paid by convicted co-conspirators. Two other former co-workers — Jason Jeffries and Brandon Simmons — earlier had pleaded guilty to failing to notify authorities about the scam. Prosecutors allege that the coconspirators stole thousands of tickets from 2005 to 2010, then funneled those tickets through brokers and others to generate more than $2 million in illegal proceeds. — Schools reporter Mark Fagan can be reached at 832-7188.

said most Kansans oppose the health reform law. “We are sent here to represent the majority of our constituents who are crying out and saying the federal government has stepped over the boundaries,” she said. But Rep. Ann Mah, D-Topeka, responded, “Passion is good, lying is bad. Most folks believe that they don’t like the federal health care bill, but to tell them they get to vote on it is a lie.” Democrats argued that the U.S. Supreme Court will probably be the final arbiter on the law and its ruling will be on whether the law violates the U.S. Constitution, not state constitutions. Rep. Jim Ward, D-Wichita, said the federal government is supreme in this matter over the states. “We had a Civil War to decide that issue,” he said. Rep. Bill Otto, R-LeRoy, said the state needs to stand up to the federal government. “I frankly see this as a line in the sand,” he said. The measure now goes to the full House. Proposed constitutional amendments require a two-

thirds majority in the House and Senate before they can be placed on the ballot for voters to decide. To pass in the 125-member House, the measure will require 84 votes, and 27 votes in the 40-member Senate. If approved it would be on the ballot in November 2012. Last year, the amendment fell short of getting a twothirds margin in the House, but Landwehr said with a larger Republican majority in the House this year, its chances are better. — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

Johnston said the major had tuberculosis and died Feb. 5, 1793, at Eltham, the family’s house in Virginia. Johnston said the letter was given to the museum by the estate of Mrs. Park Pulsifer, who before she died in 1948 asked a friend to keep it until a museum was started in Cloud County. It was one of the first items acquired by the museum when it opened in November 1959. “The note had been passed down through (Pulsifer’s) family, the Howards,” John-

Also important is giving animals water and adequate food. “Dehydration happens really quickly,” she said. “Lately we’ve seen a lot of not enough food, not enough water.” These rules go for domestic animals as well as farm animals.

While they said Afghanistan will benefit from having a better-trained military, they noted the country still has a ways to go, including in training its police force. “They do want change, but you’re talking customs, traditions, religion,” Franceschi said. “For what we did for them I think they did very well. They’re not at the first step anymore, but they’re not at the top of the stairs either.” Obama has said he would begin bringing forces home this summer, but the troop surge has also led to more casualties amid more intense fighting. “I think things are moving in the right direction. I do realize that there is a big focus on the number of casualties,” Loos said. “It’s not for nothing. I think there is progress being made.” The soldiers said they were honored to speak at the Dole Institute.

Few fingers pointed at Daley In a city known for punishing mayors for their handling of snowstorms, Mayor Richard Daley was careful not to step in front of the cameras until the main streets were clear. When he finally did Thursday, the mayor swiftly brushed aside any criticism of the city’s response to the monstrous blizzard that created a startling spectacle: hundreds of motorists stranded overnight on the city’s marquee thoroughfare. So far, few fingers were pointed at Daley, despite some inevitable second-guessing. Instead, in typically self-effacing Midwestern fashion, some of the very drivers who got stuck on Lake Shore Drive acknowledged it was their fault for using the lakefront roadway in the first place. Meanwhile, the storm left in its wake one final blow: a band of bitter cold spanning from New Mexico to the Great Lakes that kept roads slick and contributed to at least six new deaths in traffic accidents. Temperatures dropped into the single digits or lower, with wind chills that plunged nearly to minus 30 in some places. The system dumped more than 20 inches of snow on Chicago, making it the third-largest winter storm in the city’s history.

Freshman scholarships eyed as recruiting tool by KU

2 | YEMEN

Thousands march against president Tens of thousands of protesters Thursday staged unprecedented demonstrations against Yemen’s autocratic president, a key U.S. ally in battling Islamic militants, as unrest inspired by uprisings in Egypt and Tunisia spread further in the Arab world. The West is particularly concerned about instability in Yemen, home of the terrorist network al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula. U.S. counterterrorism officials are worried that Yemeni security forces will be more focused on protecting the government, allowing al-Qaida to take advantage of any diminished scrutiny. President Ali Abdullah Saleh, in office for more than three decades, announced Wednesday he would not seek re-election in 2013 and would not seek to pass power to his son. Saleh’s pledge was seen as an attempt to defuse growing calls for his ouster. Opposition groups said they are suspicious of Saleh’s offer, however, and want concrete proposals for change.

As Kansas University continues its capital campaign, one major focus will be raising money to create more four-year renewable scholarships for freshmen. And officials are touting the move as a recruiting tool. The initiative was unveiled publicly during Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little’s state of the university speech last week, and efforts are already under way at KU to make it so more students are offered these kinds of scholarships by next fall. That’s important, she said last week, because students contemplating enrollment at KU sometimes see KU as offering fewer scholarship dollars than its competitors. In reality, she said, the university often offers more money than other schools, but it’s backloaded in scholarships targeted at juniors and seniors. That, the chancellor said, isn’t as helpful in recruitment. To make the changes, university leaders had to build consensus among KU’s deans, who control much of the scholarship funds for their individual schools. Gray-Little said that effort has been ongoing and continues today. The goal, said Danny Anderson, dean of KU’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, is to identify existing funds and raise new money through the capital campaign to make scholarships for juniors and seniors available to freshmen and sophomores for four years. As Anderson connects with donors, he said, he’s found support for the idea. Many of KU’s

Poll: Training makes pets bullies The majority of American pet owners believe a well-trained dog is safe — even if it comes from one of the “bully breeds.” Some dog breeds, such as pit bulls or Rottweilers, are considered truly dangerous by 28 percent of American pet owners, but an Associated Press-Petside.com poll found that 71 percent said any breed can be safe if the dogs are well trained. “It’s not the dog. It’s the owner that’s the problem,” said Michael Hansen, a 59-year-old goldsmith from Port Orchard, Wash. “The dog will do whatever it can to please the owner, right down to killing another animal for you.” Sixty percent of pet owners feel that all dog breeds should be allowed in residential communities, while 38 percent believe some breeds should be banned, according to the poll conducted by GfK Roper Public Affairs and Corporate Communications.

James Madison chess pieces unearthed Archaeologists at James Madison’s country estate say they’ve unearthed fragments of a chess set they think Madison likely used in matches against another former president, Thomas Jefferson. Archaeologists recently discovered fragments of two pawns during an excavation at the Orange County estate of the fourth president and architect of the Bill of Rights. They initially mistook the quarter-inch diameter tops for sewing bobbins, but subsequently determined they were fragments of chess pieces. Matthew Reeves, director of archaeology at the rural, 2,650-acre estate, called the pieces “a treasure from the past reflecting James Madison’s intellectual pursuits and social life.”

Ex-KU football player pleads guilty in burglary

5 | NEW YORK CITY

Kenneth Cole apologizes for Egypt tweet An epic Twitter FAIL for fashion designer Kenneth Cole on Thursday led him to apologize for a tweet that used the crisis in Cairo to promote his spring line. The offensive tweet touched off an online flash mob and inspired a fake Twitter feed that mocked Cole’s original while attracting thousands of followers on the micro-blogging site in a matter of hours. The tweet from @KennethCole read: “Millions are in an uproar in #Cairo. Rumor is they heard our new spring collection is now available online.” It went on to provide a link to the collection, but it was taken down about five hours later, when Cole said he was sorry on Facebook. “I apologize to everyone who was offended by my insensitive tweet about the situation in Egypt. I’ve dedicated my life to raising awareness about serious social issues, and in hindsight my attempt at humor regarding a nation liberating themselves against oppression was poorly timed and absolutely inappropriate,” the post read.

The store is proposed to face north, instead of west like the current store does. As part of the design, Dillons — and its parent company, Kroger — sought two variances that would

A former Kansas University football player pleaded guilty Thursday to two charges in connection with a May incident when four KU students were held at gunpoint. Jamal Greene, 23, entered the pleas to aggravated burglary and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Prosecutors dismissed four other charges in the case. Greene’s attorney, Joshua Allen, told District Judge Paula Martin in court the two sides would likely argue at sentencing whether Greene should be given probation or a prison sentence. The four students at an Octo-

Sixth St., at 1:30 a.m. May 14 and forced them to the ground. Co-defendant Vernon Brooks, 23, another former KU football player, pleaded no contest to aggravated burglary and aggravated assault in January.

apartment because they thought they could steal drugs and money from a back bedroom. Brooks was dismissed from the KU football team last spring before the incident, and Greene was kicked off the team the day he was arrested in this case. Greene, 23, of Kansas City, Kan., played football last fall for MidAmerica Nazarene University of Olathe. Martin told Greene during Thursday’s hearing that if he has a minimal criminal history record he faced a maximum sentence of nearly three years in prison on the aggravated burglary count and seven months on the agg ravated assault

count. Greene could also fall within what is called a “border box” where the defense could ask for probation in the case. Martin said he would have to register as a violent offender because a firearm was used. At the preliminary hearing, a detective testified Greene told him he used a semiautomatic weapon he owned, and claimed it was not loaded. Martin is scheduled to sentence Brooks on March 3 and Greene on April 1. Both men remain free on bond. — Reporter George Diepenbrock can be reached at 832-7144.

Q:

Out on K-10 East, just by the business park, there used to be an old cemetery you could see from the north side of the road. Does that cemetery have a name and is it for animals or people?

A:

According to Find a Grave, the cemetery is called Franklin Cemetery. The website says the cemetery has 27 recorded graves of people who died between 1855 and 1914.

Heidi Pritchard, masters student, Lawrence “I have two kids. They have days set aside in the year for that, so it doesn’t really make sense.”

Jodine Trout, teacher, Lawrence “Heck no, I’m a teacher. I think that should just be a natural disaster; it’s an act of God.”

Logan Mallicoat, pre-med major, Lawrence “No, extending the school year is blasphemy.”

Tom Burgess, electrician, Lawrence “Yup, just to make sure they get the curriculum in.”

LAWRENCE ON THE RECORD

LJWORLD.COM/BLOTTER

LAW ENFORCEMENT REPORT • Lawrence police are investigating a report of a sexual assault late Wednesday night. Sgt. Matt Sarna, a police spokesman, said a 35-year-old Lawrence woman told officers that an acquaintance sexually assaulted her. Police were called just after midnight to the 2400 block of Alabama Street. Police did not release a description of the suspect Thursday morning. “Officers and detectives are still investigating the incident at this time,” Sarna said. He said that the woman was taken to a hospital to be evaluated as part of the investigation but that she was not injured in the incident. • A 36-year-old Valley Falls man is being treated for frostbite and a dog bite after involving law enforcement officials in a foot chase that lasted more than three hours. According to a media release from Jefferson County Sheriff Jeff Herrig, Valley Falls officers attempted to serve the suspect with a county warrant just before 4 p.m. Thursday. The suspect, who lived in the 200 block of Walnut Street, fled from the area on foot, heading northbound and crossing the Delaware River. Members of the sheriff’s office, Kansas Highway Patrol and Kansas Wildlife and Parks Department all aided in the search. Aircraft and K-9 units were also involved.

Sometime during the pursuit, the suspect lost his shoes, LAWRENCE according to Jefferson County emergency dispatchers. The suspect was eventually apprehended west of Valley Falls about 7:20 p.m. near Kansas Highway 16 and Finney Road. The suspect was taken into custody and transported to Stormont-Vail Regional Healthcare for treatment. • Franklin County Sheriff’s officers Thursday morning said an alleged sexual assault reported Monday night on Interstate 35 was a hoax. Officers said they re-interviewed a 14-year-old Kansas City, Mo., boy who made the initial allegation that he was assaulted by a stranger who picked him up as he was walking to a gasoline station east of Ottawa. The boy had initially told authorities that his family had car trouble and that he was walking to a nearby service station for help. “The alleged victim confessed to making up the report. It is unknown at this time why the boy made up the story,” Undersheriff Steve Lunger said in a statement. Officers Tuesday even released a description the suspect the boy had given them and asked anyone with information in the case to call investigators. Lunger’s statement to the media Thursday morning about the hoax did not say if the boy would face any criminal charges for making the false report.

allow for: ● A reduction in parking. The city code requires 150 parking spaces. The variance allows Dillons to provide 129 spaces. ● A reduction in how far the store must be set back from Massachusetts and New Hampshire streets. Code requires the store to be set back 25 feet from the streets. The variance eliminates the setback requirement.

“Kroger is a huge company and they are trying to save a little bit of money by testing the limits of the city’s code,” said Matthew Gough, an attorney representing an ownership group of an apartment building just north of the store. “The question before you tonight is whether they will be allowed to develop the cheap way or whether they will be made to do it the right way.” But Dillons representatives said the company was working to make the project

much more heavily than the 5,000 or 10,000 east Lawrence residents who also will benefit from this project,” Austin C. Turney said. The project now must win site plan approval from city planners. A representative from Dillons said the company did not have a firm timeline on when construction of a new store could begin.

“It’s a really painless way to up your charitable giving without really having to think about it,” Greene said. And during the f inal months of 2010, Greene proved that to be true, winning awards in both categories of the program’s “Give Back Challenge.” From October through December, Greene shopped at more local merchants — of which 52 participate in the program — than all but two other cardholders. She also was in the top three for most transactions at participating merchants. More than 280 people registered to participate in the challenge. The program isn’t just about helping the local economy; it’s also about developing relationships within the community. Program assistant Sara Wolfe said seeing the interaction among residents, businesses and charitable organizations has been rewarding. “They’re helping each other by promoting the businesses, by the money going to charity,” she said. “It’s just exciting to be a part of it.” While members of the community mingled, Wolfe reflected on the simple yet important goals her program strives to achieve, serving as an alternative to tax increases and service cuts. “It’s to keep our community economically sustainable,” she said. “This is a creative approach to offset those shortfalls.” Edwin Rothrock, director of market strategies for The World Company, said the company’s new relationship with Give Back was a step forward. “It’s exciting to be able to join forces with a program that does so much to support local businesses and contribute to charitable causes in the community,” he said. — Reporter Joe Preiner can be reached at 832-6314.

most successful alumni received scholarships, he said. “They know what a transformational difference that can make,” Anderson said. The change will be largely felt in the college, where Anderson said virtually every department has a financial award of some kind it gives to juniors and seniors. “Every department in the college wants to have the best students,” Anderson said, and if they can strategically use their money in a way to attract those students as freshmen, all the better, he said. The change could mean more students get admitted to KU’s professional schools — such as journalism and education — as freshmen, said Rick Ginsberg, dean of the School of Education. Currently, those who want to be teachers are admitted to the education school as juniors, and those enrolling in the school’s health, sport and exercise sciences program are admitted as sophomores.

The school will be rolling out a pilot program this fall, Ginsberg said, to admit KANSAS four students UNIVERSITY who want to become teachers and four HSES students as freshmen. The course work for the programs wouldn’t change, but early admission would give students access to the school’s scholarship funds as they enter KU. “If it means attracting the best and brightest students that Kansas has to offer, we think it could be a darned good idea,” Ginsberg said. That’s long been the model in KU’s School of Engineering, where students now are admitted as freshmen, said Dean Stuart Bell. “It’s really competitive to get the best students,” he said, adding he had just finished signing a stack of offer letters to send to freshmen outlining the compensation packages they’ll be receiving over four years at KU.

House Republicans move to slash domestic programs SCORE SUPER

By Andrew Taylor

Associated Press Writer

come as the House GOP advances a fresh round of spending bills for the 2012 budget year, which begins Oct. 1. The hardest-hit agencies would include the Food and Drug Administration, the Internal Revenue Service and the departments of Commerce, Housing and Urban Development and Agriculture, according to partial details released by the House Appropriations Committee. Foreign aid on an annualized basis would take a 6 percent cut. Congress’ own budget would be barely touched. Conservative Republicans want even greater cuts, and they’ll be given the chance to impose them in a freewheeling floor debate scheduled for the week of Feb. 14. Republicans made a campaign promise to cut $100 billion from Obama’s request for domestic agencies such as the Department of Education, for the budget year that began last October. But that year is under way, and they’re so far falling short, just $58 billion under the plan released Thursday. They promise to try to fully impose the dramatic cuts during what is sure to be a contentious debate. The $100 billion in reductions was an inflated promise because it was measured against Obama’s budget request for this year. The actual savings would be less because Obama’s budget increases weren’t approved, and the government is operating at 2010 levels.

WASHINGTON — Republicans now controlling the House promised Thursday to slash domestic agencies’ budgets by almost 20 percent for the coming year, the first salvo in what’s sure to be a bruising battle over their drive to cut spending to where it was before President Barack Obama took office. “Washington’s spending spree is over,” declared Paul Ryan, the House Budget Committee chairman who announced the plan. “The spending limits will restore sanity to a broken budget process,” he said, returning “to pre-stimulus, pre-bailout levels.” Republicans won’t get everything they want.

Sales figures for January showed that shoppers weren’t spent out after Christmas. The council’s index of 32 stores showed a robust 4.8 percent increase for the month, well above the expected 1.5 to 2 percent. Analysts were worried that snowstorm after snowstorm, particularly in the Northeast, might have kept shoppers at home. The figures cover Jan. 2 through Saturday for stores that have been open at least a year. Consumer spending accounts for about 70 percent of U.S. economic activity, so how shoppers behave is an important measure of economic health.

Egypt chaos: Dozens of reporters beaten, arrested By Maggie Michael Associated Press Writer

CAIRO — Menacing gangs backing President Hosni Mubarak attacked journalists and human rights activists Thursday in an ugly turn in Egypt’s crisis as government opponents pushed supporters out of Cairo’s main square in a second day of battles. Organizers called for protesters trying to topple the regime to fill every square in the huge capital today. The new vice president, widely considered the first successor Mubarak has ever designated, fueled anti-foreign sentiment by going on state television and blaming outsiders for fomenting unrest. The government has accused media outlets of being sympathetic to protesters who want the president to quit now rather than serve out his term, as he has vowed to do. Mubarak, 82, told ABC television in an interview that he was fed up and wants to resign. But he said he can’t for fear the country would sink into chaos. He said he was very unhappy about the two days of clashes in central Tahrir Square. “I do not want to see Egyptians fighting each other,” he was quoted as saying. The violence that had been concentrated in Tahrir spread around the city of 18 million, with a new wave of arson and looting. Soldiers, mainly protecting government buildings and important institutions, remained passive as they have since replacing police on the streets almost a week ago. Few uniformed police have been seen around the city in that time, and protesters allege some of them have stripped off their uniforms and mixed in with the gangs of marauding thugs. “When there are demonstrations of this size, there will be foreigners who come and take advantage and they have an agenda to raise the energy of the protesters,”

Global obesity rates double over last 30 years LONDON (AP) — The world is becoming a heavier place, especially in the West. Obesity rates worldwide have doubled in the last three decades even as blood pressure and cholesterol levels have dropped, according to three new studies. People in Pacific Island nations like American Samoa are the heaviest, one of the studies shows. Among developed countries, Americans are the fattest and the Japanese are the slimmest. In 1980, about 5 percent of men and 8 percent of women worldwide were obese. By 2008, the rates were nearly 10 percent for men and 14 percent for women. That means 205 million men and 297 million women weighed in as obese. Another 1.5 billion adults were overweight, according to the obesity study. Though richer countries did a better job of keeping blood pressure and cholesterol levels under control, researchers said people nearly everywhere are piling on the pounds, except in a few places including central Africa and South Asia. The studies were published today in the medical journal, Lancet. The research confirms earlier trends about mounting obesity and the three papers provide the most comprehensive, recent global look at body mass index, cholesterol and blood pressure. Body mass index is a measurement based on weight and height. Experts warned the increasing numbers of obese people could lead to a “global tsunami of cardiovascular disease.” Obesity is also linked to higher rates of cancer, diabetes and is estimated to cause about 3 million deaths worldwide every year.

ANTI-GOVERNMENT PROTESTERS THROW STONES during clashes Thursday in Cairo, Egypt. Egypt’s prime minister apologized for an attack by government supporters on protesters in a surprising show of contrition Thursday, and the government offered more concessions to try to calm the wave of demonstrations demanding the ouster of President Hosni Mubarak. Vice President Omar Suleiman said on state television. Pro-government mobs beat foreign journalists with sticks and fists Thursday. The Committee to Protect Journalists said 24 reporters were detained in 24 hours, including representatives of The Washington Post and The New York Times. Twenty-one journalists were assaulted, including two with Fox News. One Greek journalist was stabbed in the leg with a screwdriver, and a photographer was punched in the face, his equipment smashed. The Arabic news network Al-Arabiya pleaded for the army to protect its offices and journalists, and AlJazeera said four of its correspondents were attacked. The BBC’s foreign editor said security forces had seized the network’s equipment in a hotel to stop it broadcasting. White House spokesman Robert Gibbs denounced reports of “systematic targeting” of journalists and the State Department described it as a “concerted campaign to intimidate.”

“I think we need to be clear that the world is watching the actions that are taking place right now in Egypt,” Gibbs said. Human rights activists were also targeted. Military police stormed the offices of an Egyptian rights group as activists were meeting and arrested at least 30, including two from the London-based Amnesty International, Amnesty spokesman Tom Mackey said. New Yorkbased Human Rights Watch said one of its activists was also among those arrested. Amnesty’s secretary-general Salil Shetty demanded their immediate release saying they should be allowed “to monitor the human rights situation in Egypt at this crucial time without fear of harassment or detention.” Mubarak’s top ally, the United States, has pressed him to quickly transition to a democratic government but has said his earlier gestures, including forming a new government, were insufficient. The crisis that began on Jan. 25 when protesters launched the biggest chal-

lenge ever to Mubarak’s 30year rule has grown perilous. The day after Mubarak went on television late Tuesday and refused to step down, thousands of his supporters attacked anti-government protesters in Tahrir Square, where they had held a peaceful vigil for days. The Mubarak supporters started fierce battles with firebombs, machetes and chunks of pavement that lasted throughout the night and all day Thursday. After nightfall, the fighting died down with protesters’ hold on the square and nearby streets unbroken. Nearly 10,000 remained, some dancing and singing in victory as others — battered and bandaged — lay down exhausted to sleep or drank tea in the center of the rubble-strewn roundabout. Throughout the day, they gained in numbers and got supplies of food and medicine. At least eight people have been killed and about 900 injured in the two days of fighting around Tahrir.

Campaign transparency Kansas voters deserve to know who is bankrolling “issue” advertising aimed at influencing state elections.

F

or the eighth straight year, the Kansas Governmental Ethics Commission is expected to recommend that the Kansas Legislature approve a bill requiring political action committees to file campaign finance reports detailing exactly how much they are spending and who is providing those funds. Had such a law been in effect last fall, we would have known who was bankrolling the Iowa-based American Future Fund, which spent about $1 million on television advertising during the November election campaign to defeat Kansas Attorney General Steve Six. Groups like the American Future Fund bypass traditional campaign disclosure rules for individuals and PACs because they don’t expressly advocate votes for or against a candidate. Instead, they seek to influence voters through “issue ads.” House Minority Leader Paul Davis, DLawrence, also has pushed for a change in the ethics law for years. “There are just going to be more and more groups spending more and more money to influence our elections,” Davis told the Journal-World. The least that should be required of such groups is to tell the public where the money is coming from to pay for the ads. That information could give voters an idea why the funds’ donors might seek to sway the vote. It’s an issue of transparency. According to AFF’s website, the group opposes the health care reform signed into law by President Barack Obama. The AFF ran ads attacking Six for refusing to join the legal challenge of the law. Six was defeated by Republican Derek Schmidt, who has since fulfilled a campaign promise by joining a lawsuit against the health reform law. AFF commercials didn’t endorse Schmidt, but a law ensuring transparency of AFF donors might have helped voters make that connection. Voters also can play a role in combating the influence of such television ads by simply ignoring them. There is nothing objective about these ads; they are meant to influence, not inform. Voters should be forewarned that the message they receive from issue ads likely is slanted or unclear. It’s time that Kansas have a law requiring PACs to file campaign finance reports that show how much they are spending on “issue” ads and who is bankrolling that effort. That will help to better inform the voters, rather than keeping them blindfolded.

Stable transition key to Egypt democracy W A S H I N G T O N — Who doesn’t love a democratic revolution? Who is not moved by the renunciation of fear and the reclamation of dignity in the streets of Cairo and Alexandria? The worldwide euphoria that has greeted the Egyptian uprising is understandable. All revolutions are blissful in the first days. The romance could be forgiven if this were Paris 1789. But it is not. In the intervening 222 years, we have learned how these things can end. The Egyptian awakening carries promise and hope and, of course, merits our support. But

The military is the best vehicle for guiding the country to free elections over the coming months. Whether it does so with Mubarak at the top, or with Vice President Omar Suleiman or perhaps with some technocrat who arouses no ire among the demonstrators, matters not to us.” only a child can believe that a democratic outcome is inevitable. And only a blinkered optimist can believe that it is even the most likely outcome. Yes, the Egyptian revolution is broad-based. But so were the French and the Russian and the Iranian revolutions. Indeed in Iran, the revolution only succeeded — the shah was long opposed by the mullahs — when the merchants, the housewives, the students and the secularists joined to bring him down. And who ended up in control? The most disciplined, ruthless and ideologically committed — the radical Islamists. This is why our paramount

moral and strategic interest in Egypt is real democracy in which power does not devolve to those who believe in one man, one vote, one time. That would be Egypt’s fate should the Muslim Brotherhood prevail. That was the fate of Gaza, now under the brutal thumb of Hamas, a Palestinian wing (see article 2 of Hamas’ founding covenant) of the Muslim Brotherhood. We are told by sage Western analysts not to worry about the Brotherhood because it probably commands only about 30 percent of the vote. This is reassurance? In a country where the secular democratic opposition is weak and fractured after decades of persecution, any Islamist party commanding a third of the vote rules the country. Elections will be held. The primary U.S. objective is to guide a transition period that gives secular democrats a chance. The House of Mubarak is no more. He is 82, reviled and not running for re-election. The only question is who fills the vacuum. There are two principal possibilities: a provisional government of opposition forces, possibly led by Mohamed ElBaradei, or an interim government led by the military. ElBaradei would be a disaster.

As head of the International Atomic Energy Agency, he did more than anyone to make an Iranian nuclear bomb possible, covering for the mullahs for years. (As soon as he left, the IAEA issued a strikingly tough, unvarnished report about the program.) Worse, ElBaradei has allied himself with the Muslim Brotherhood. Such an alliance is grossly unequal. The Brotherhood has organization, discipline and widespread support. In 2005, it won approximately 20 percent of parliamentary seats. ElBaradei has no constituency of his own, no political base, no political history within Egypt at all. He has lived abroad for decades. He has less of a residency claim to Egypt than Rahm Emanuel has to Chicago. A man with no constituency allied with a highly organized and powerful political party is nothing but a mouthpiece and a figurehead, a useful idiot that the Brotherhood will dispense with when it ceases to have need of a cosmopolitan frontman. The Egyptian military, on the other hand, is the most stable and important institution in the country. It is Western-oriented and rightly suspicious of the

Brotherhood. And it is widely respected, carrying the prestige of the 1952 “Free Officers Movement” that overthrew the monarchy and the 1973 October War that restored Egyptian pride along with the Sinai. The military is the best vehicle for guiding the country to free elections over the coming months. Whether it does so with Mubarak at the top, or with Vice President Omar Suleiman or perhaps with some technocrat who arouses no ire among the demonstrators, matters not to us. If the army calculates that sacrificing Mubarak (through exile) will satisfy the opposition and end the unrest, so be it. The overriding objective is a period of stability during which secularists and other democratic elements of civil society can organize themselves for the coming elections and prevail. ElBaradei is a menace. Mubarak will be gone one way or the other. The key is the military. The U.S. should say very little in public and do everything behind the scenes to help the military midwife — and then guarantee — what is still something of a long shot: Egyptian democracy. — Charles Krauthammer is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.

Giant can be lulled into stupidity ITEM: Only 28 percent of high school science teachers consistently follow National Research Council guidelines encouraging them to present students evidence of evolution. Thirteen percent “explicitly advocate creationism or intelligent design ...” These are among the findings of Penn State political scientists Michael Berkman and Eric Plutzer after examining data from a representative survey of 926 high school biology teachers. Writing in the Jan. 28 issue of Science magazine, they report that most science teachers — 60 percent — cheat controversy by such stratagems as telling students it does not matter if they “believe” in evolution, so long as they understand enough to pass a test. Or they teach evolution on a par with creationism and encouraging students to make up their own minds. ●

Once upon a time, there lived a stupid giant. The giant had not always been stupid. Or, perhaps it is more accurate to say the giant had once revered intelligence, reason and the byproducts thereof. Indeed, the giant was renowned for an ingenuity and standard of living that made it the envy of the world. But much of the world did more than envy the giant. Much of the world admired and respected it. Its basic decency, along with its strength and intelligence, set it apart. There came a time, however, when, though the giant retained its strength and arguably even its decency, it lost its intelligence. No one can say exactly how and when the loss occurred. There was no great blast of thunder and lightning to herald it, no sudden instant when the giant’s intelli-

crept over “theNo,giantstupidity with the stealth of twilight, a product less of one abrupt moment than of a thousand moments of complacency, of resting on laurels, of allowing curiosity to be teased and bullied out of bright children, of dumbing down textbooks so kids could get better grades with less work, of using ‘elite’ like a curse word.”

Stupidity stole over the giant until it could no longer tell science from faith, or conventional wisdom from actual wisdom and in any event, valued ideological purity above them all. Stupidity snaked over the giant until science teachers shrank from teaching science, history books contained history that wasn’t history, late-night comics got easy laughs from people on the street who could not say when the War of 1812 was fought, political leaders told outright lies with blithe smiles and no fear of being caught, and you would not have been surprised to hear that someone had fixed mathematics, so that 2 plus 2 could now equal 17, thus preserving the all-important self-esteem of second-grade kids. Some regarded the giant’s stupidity as a danger. They reasoned that when one is so big that one’s merest movement or slightest utterance affects the entire world, it’s a good idea if those movements and utterances are animated by something more than autonomic function. Others saw the giant’s stupidity as an opportunity. They learned eagerly until they surpassed the giant’s intellect. They grew until they rivaled the giant’s size and strength. They did not attempt to match the giant’s decency. They considered decency a hindrance. And the giant? It sat on its haunches in the mud as the world changed about it and new giants rose and shook their fists. The giant did not notice. It was watching “The Jersey Shore” on MTV. And it lived obliviously ever after.

State highway officials told city and county commissioners that YEARS during the next AGO eight to 10 years, IN 1971 traffic in the Lawrence area would increase enough to justify a bypass to the southeast “for through traffic to Clinton and Perry recreation areas.” Part of a recent study also addressed the “Kaw River bridge problem,” proposing the closure of Massachusetts Street to southbound traffic and the building of a second bridge from the Santa Fe underpass in North Lawrence to Sixth and Tennessee.

From the Lawrence Daily World for Feb. 4, 1911: YEARS “A movement will AGO be launched this IN 1911 week to establish a Junior Civic League in Lawrence. With penny packets of flower seeds the children of Lawrence will be encouraged to plant gardens and aid in beautifying the city. The value of children’s gardens as a means for health, happiness, recreation, gentle but effective exercise, and as a preventative of moral and physical tuberculosis, is becoming more and more recognized. There is no longer a question as to the value of fresh air and sunshine for the delicate child or adult.” “[Book review] ‘The Phantom of the Opera’ by Gaston Leroux. This story seems easily the best that Gaston Leroux has written, of a far higher type of imagination than that displayed in ‘The Mystery of the Yellow Room.’ It is a most extraordinary, clever, fantastic tale -- original in idea and masterly in treatment. ”

No, stupidity crept over the giant with the stealth of twilight, a product less of one abrupt moment than of a thousand moments of complacency, of resting on laurels, of allowing curiosity to be teased and bullied out of bright children, of dumbing down textbooks so kids could get better grades with less work, of using “elite” like a curse word.

Report: Ike memorial impedes Capitol view WASHINGTON — A report says a planned memorial to former President Dwight D. Eisenhower would intrude too much on views of the Capitol. The report examined three proposed designs by architect Frank Gehry. The National Capital Planning Commission, which is overseeing the memorial’s construction, discussed the report at a meeting Thursday. The commission’s staff reviewed the designs and expressed support for one in particular that includes woven metal photo “tapestries.” But the staff also said all the designs, which include tall columns, intrude too much on views of the nearby Capitol. Planning for the Eisenhower memorial began more than a decade ago. The site, about four acres of land by the National Air and Space Museum, was selected in 2006.

KU MEN’S BASKETBALL

Hitting his stride Selby answering call to be aggressive

——

Incoming football players discuss why they chose KU By Matt Tait mtait@ljworld.com

By Matt Tait mtait@ljworld.com

Thrust into the role of pseudosavior before he even had time to warm up, Kansas University freshman Josh Selby exploded onto the scene in mid-December with one of the most memorable debuts in KU basketball history. In a two-point victory against USC at Allen Fieldhouse, Selby scored 21 points in 27 minutes. He hit five of eight three-pointers and six of seven free throws, much to the delight of an adoring home crowd. Since then, Selby has endured the types of ups and downs that most freshmen experience during their first seasons of college basketball. However, in the last couple of weeks, Selby has started to turn the corner. The reason? The 6-foot-2 guard from Baltimore has started to become more assertive on offense, taking the ball to the rim instead of just settling for jumpers. It’s worked. And KU coach Bill Self has noticed. “Ever since the Texas game, I told him I was going to forcefeed him to be aggressive,” Self said Thursday. “He’s gotta be aggressive or I can’t play him. And I really believe that he’s become more aggressive and (is) doing more things. He’ll shoot it better if he’s attacking the paint. He’ll pass it better if he’s attacking the paint. He just can’t sit back and be a station-to-station player.” In 13 games this season, Selby has averaged 27 minutes per contest while scoring 12 points per game. Although there have been games where he has disappeared offensively, Self has given him time to work through it for two big reasons. First, after sitting out the first nine games of the year, Selby is just now starting to hit his mid-season stride. Second, he’s done enough positive things of other varieties to warrant the minutes, particularly of late. “He’s not selfish. He’s not taking an abundance of shots. But he’s looking to score, and that forces help and (then) he can find other guys,” Self said. “I think he’s doing a nice job now.” Self continued: “Sometimes when kids hear you say, ‘Be under control,’ they hear, ‘Back it

HIGH SCHOOL WRESTLING

Free State battles to take fourth Journal-World Sports Writer

Between bodies smacking against the mat, whistles blowing from all around, and the dozens of parents, teammates and coaches barking out directions, the noise in the gym was tremendous. Somehow, Free State High sophomore Drew Botello managed to find tranquility in the center of all the ruckus. “I just block everything out except for my coaches,” Botello said. “I really don’t hear anybody else except for my coaches telling me to work stuff.” Botello, a scrappy 103-

Officially, Wednesday was National Signing Day. But the fanfare and excitement surrounding the Kansas University football program’s most recent recruiting haul spilled over into Thursday and doesn’t figure to stop there. One day after unveiling a 2011 class that included 27 players from 11 states, coast-to-coast, several members of the class talked about what impressed them most about the first full recruiting class brought to I am Kansas by head incredibly coach Turner impressed Gill. “I am incred- with the raw ibly impressed talent that with the raw talent that coach Gill coach Gill brought in brought in with with this this class,” said class. offensive lineman Luke (There’s) Luhrsen, of also some Wheaton (Ill.) really great Warrenville South High. speed (on) “(There’s) also offense and some really defense. ” great speed (on) offense and defense.

It really is looking like a good class.” While the speed Luhrsen talked about was the theme of the class for Gill and his coaching staff — “The main thing is speed,” Gill said. “I want some guys that can flat-out run.” — the 6-foot-5, 265-pound lineman’s belief in the coaches seemed to be a common theme for most of the athletes who inked with the Jayhawks. Jon Kirby, who covers KU recruiting for Rivals.com, said he recognized that very thing while talking with parents throughout the past several months. “A big thing that plays in here is Turner Gill,” Kirby said. “When people get to know Turner Gill, who he is, what he stands for, they feel comfortable handing their sons off to someone like Turner Gill, who they believe will raise their son right. When you’re about to send your son hours away to go to school, a lot of people don’t understand that

SM West too much for Lawrence High By Clark Goble Journal-World Sports Writer

The Lawrence High girls basketball team’s gameplan on Thursday was simple: make Shawnee Mission West hit the outside shot to win. The Vikings certainly did it, hitting 62.5 percent of their field goals and 5-of-7 three-pointers to cruise to a 64-34 victory at LHS. Coming out in a packed-in 1-31 zone, the Lions wanted to try to eliminate the Vikings’ vaunted inside attack. But the Vikings (12-1) hit their outside shots early, forcing the Lions (4-9) to come out of the zone. By then, the deficit was just too great for the Lions to overcome.

Coach Nick Wood knew the Vikings were a very capable team, but he wasn’t completely satisfied with his team’s effort. “We didn’t make it as hard for them as we needed to,” Wood said. The Vikings opened the game on a 9-2 run behind seven points from senior Kaitlin Beeman. West took a 14-4 lead before Wood switched his team into a man-to-man defense. He pointed to a couple defensive issues — namely not getting back in transition or playing solid help-side defense. “Those aren’t things we preach,” Wood said. “We just made it way too easy, and against Please see LHS GIRLS, page 3B

4 tied for lead in chilly Phoenix Open S C O T T S D A L E , A R I Z . ( AP ) — Bill Haas, Jason Bohn, Tom Gillis and Champions Tour player Tom Lehman shot 6-under 65s in chilly conditions Thursday to share the lead in the suspended f irst round of the Phoenix Open. The start of play was delayed four hours because of heavy frost at TPC Scottsdale and only the

scheduled morning starters completed the round. The temperature dipped into the mid 20s overnight and it was 39 when play started at 11:40 a.m. The high was 47 on a cloudless day in the desert. “It’s cold,” Haas said. “You’ve got four layers on.” Another long frost delay was expected today, likely forcing most

DALLAS — You might have heard that it’s cold and icy in north Texas, bitter enough, in fact, that even the Green Bay Packers could not practice outside Wednesday for their first on-site Super Bowl XLV workout. So Southern Methodist University’s Gerald J. Ford Stadium was scratched. Instead, the Packers went to an indoor facility at . . . Highland Park High School. Huh? The NFC champion, and one of the most famous professional sports franchises in the world at that, has to slum it at a high school while readying for the Pittsburgh Steelers? It had to be one of Jerry Jones’ shenanigans, right? “But a high school in Texas is a little different than other high schools,” Packers coach Mike McCarthy said. A little? “Highland Park would be the Beverly Hills of Dallas,” said Packers No. 3 quarterback Graham Harrell, who went to high school in a nice-enough Dallas suburb, just not Highland Park. Actually, Highland Park High School is located in adjoining University Park, not far from oh-so chic SMU. At a nearby coffee shop just before the Packers arrived, a man complimented a woman on her fashion sense. With her fur-looking coat, she was wearing sandals in 20-degree weather. “You have to have a good chauffer to pull this off,” she told him. In describing Highland Park’s athletic facilities, let’s just say there are stadiums in a smaller, but not that much smaller, college sense. Forget the football stadium, which would be larger than anything in Wisconsin outside of Camp Randall and Lambeau. Beyond everything else, there is a tennis office, with parking spaces labeled “Tennis Only.” There is an indoor tennis facility beside the courts, just beyond a parking deck for students. Six years ago, Sports Illustrated ranked Highland Park as the No. 1 sports program in the state of Texas, which would put it high in the running as the best sports program in the country. Heisman Trophy winner Doak Walker and Bobby Layne, both of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, played at Highland Park. So did current Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford, whose donations partially went to the on-campus indoor facility the Packers borrowed. “Hopefully, Mr. Stafford donated enough to the high school,” Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said. Oh, he did. “That’s the amazing thing about Texas high school football,” said Packers kicker Mason Crosby, who grew up not far from Austin. “We move from a college to a high school to practice. That says a lot.” In truth, the Packers don’t really need anything as spacious or nice as Highland Park to practice. They installed 90 percent of their game plan for the Steelers before leaving Monday afternoon. McCarthy said the Packers stayed in town as long as possible because their work environment in Green Bay is among the NFL’s best. A lot of the Packers’ week in north Texas is devoted to media obligations. Even if they were relegated to working out in their hotel ballroom up in Las Colinas, the Packers are merely fine-tuning at this point. Judging by their level of confidence, they were ready for the Steelers yesterday. But another native Texan, Donald Driver, wouldn’t change a thing about a week where hype trumps substance. He’s waited 12 years to get to the Super Bowl, and now that it’s in his home state to boot, “I’m savoring every moment,” he said. When the Packers reached Highland Park for practice, Driver had a message for his teammates. “I told the guys to look around when they get in there and count the trophies,” said Driver, who played high school football in Houston. “We win championships here.” Maybe, the route to another Lombardi Trophy will go through a Texas high school as well.

Nebraska secondary coach Sanders resigns LINCOLN, NEB. — Marvin Sanders, who coached one of the top pass defenses in the nation, has resigned as Nebraska’s secondary coach. Coach Bo Pelini announced Sanders’ departure in a statement Thursday, a day after Indiana coach Kevin Wilson said at his signingday news conference that Corey Raymond was leaving the Hoosiers’ staff to coach Nebraska’s secondary. Raymond would not confirm his move to Nebraska when reached Thursday, referring questions to Pelini. Pelini said in his statement that he was “working toward finding a replacement for coach Sanders” and that an announcement would be made “when the hiring process is completed.” The secondary coach’s job is the second opening on the defensive side. Pelini also is looking to hire a linebackers coach after Mike Ekeler left in December to become co-defensive coordinator at Indiana.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL Workers fired over player records IOWA CITY, IOWA — The University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics will fire three employees and suspend two others after an investigation confirmed they inappropriately breached the electronic medical records of hospitalized football players, a spokesman said Thursday. The hospital launched an investigation last week after acknowledging the medical records of the 13 Iowa football players who were hospitalized with a rare muscle disorder may have been inappropriately accessed.

MLB Pettitte to announce retirement NEW YORK — Andy Pettitte will announce his retirement Friday morning at a Yankee Stadium news conference. A five-time World Series champion, Pettitte had been telling the Yankees since the end of the season that it was likely he wouldn’t play in 2011. He became a free agent and has not attempted to negotiate a contract. The 38-year-old left-hander is 240-138 with a 3.88 ERA in 16 major league seasons. He excelled in the postseason, setting a major league record for wins by going 19-10 with a 3.83 ERA.

Ramirez, White Sox finalize deal CHICAGO — Alexei Ramirez would love nothing more than to spend the rest of his career with the Chicago White Sox. Consider this a big step. The shortstop and the team finalized a new contract that adds $32.5 million over four years through 2015. Chicago exercised Ramirez’s $2.75 million option for 2011 in December. The agreement announced Thursday adds salaries of $5 million in 2012, $7 million in 2013, $9.5 million in 2014 and $10 million in 2015. The White Sox have a $10 million option for 2016 with a $1 million buyout. “I’m so happy with where I’m at with the White Sox, with what I’ve done so far, and what I hope to accomplish,” Ramirez said through an interpreter during a telephone conference call. “If I’m lucky enough to play for the White Sox my entire career, that’s something I would love to do.”

Source: Kotsay, Brewers agree MILWAUKEE — A person familiar with negotiations says the Milwaukee Brewers and outfielder Mark Kotsay have agreed to a $800,000, one-year contract.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on Thursday on condition of anonymity because the deal is still being finalized. The 35-year-old can play first base and the outfield and figures to bolster the Brewers bench. Last year with the Chicago White Sox, Kotsay hit .239 with eight homers and 31 RBIs in 327 at-bats.

Feliz, Royals agree KANSAS CITY, MO. — Infielder Pedro Feliz has agreed to a minor league contract with the Kansas City Royals. The 35-year-old hit .218 with five homers and 40 RBIs last year for Houston and St. Louis. In 11 big league seasons that included stints with San Francisco (2000-07) and Philadelphia (2008-09), he has a .250 average with 140 homers and 598 RBIs. His agreement was announced Thursday.

COLLEGE BASKETBALL MSU coach bans Twitter STARKVILLE, MISS. — Mississippi State coach Rick Stansbury has banned his team from using Twitter after players posted critical comments on the social networking website following Wednesday’s 75-61 loss to Alabama. Starting guard Ravern Johnson posted “starting to see why people Transfer you can play the minutes but not getting your talents shown because u watching someone else wit the ball the whole game,” according to The Jackson (Miss.) Clarion-Ledger. Johnson, a 6-foot-7 senior who is averaging 17.7 points per game, scored just 10 points against the Crimson Tide. The Bulldogs have an 11-10 overall record, 3-4 in the Southeastern Conference.

NFL Arizona, Indy have best fields DALLAS — The Pittsburgh Steelers have the worst grass field in the NFL, according to the latest survey by the players union. The AFC champions ranked at the bottom when players were asked to evaluate the fields on a scale of three points for top choice, two for second and one for third. Worst among the artificial turfs is the one at the Minnesota Vikings’ Metrodome, which collapsed during a blizzard in December and forced two games to be moved. University of Phoenix Stadium, home of the Arizona Cardinals, has the best grass field, while the best artificial turf is in Indianapolis’ Lucas Oil Stadium, site of next year’s Super Bowl.

Griese retires from broadcasting BRISTOL, CONN. — Hall of Fame quarterback Bob Griese is retiring from broadcasting. Griese spent 29 years in his second career after leading the Miami Dolphins to two Super Bowl titles. The last 24 were with ABC and ESPN.

NFL, union disagree DALLAS — Go ahead and add franchise tags to the lengthy list of issues the NFL and its players disagree about. The league is telling clubs they can place that designation on players whose contracts are expiring, even if there’s no new collective bargaining agreement to replace the one that ends March 3. The union sent a letter to agents Thursday to tell them the NFL is wrong about that. “Our position is that you can franchise anyone you want, by whatever date you want, but if there is no CBA, the franchise tags will be meaningless,” NFL Players Association executive director DeMaurice Smith said.

Recruits impressed by talent of class

KU’s Selby hitting his stride CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1B

out.’ (When you say) ‘We can get a better shot than that,’ they hear, ‘Don’t shoot.’ Even though you don’t say that, that’s how they interpret what you say, so it’s kind of a fine line. ‘Go.’ He understands that. And he needs to go, he needs to go. And he needs to have that freedom to know that he can go.” Selby, by the way, has been wearing a boot on the ankle he sprained in the first half of the Kansas State game. “He tweaked his ankle and is wearing the boot for precautionary reasons,” Self said.

Releford slow to return Self said Thursday that redshirt sophomore Travis Releford still had a ways to go in recovering from the ankle injury he suffered against Iowa State on Jan. 12. “Unfortunately, for him, he turned his ankle pretty severely and he’s still not 100 percent,” Self said. “We played him (Tuesday) against Texas Tech and he did fine while he was out there, made a couple of good passes and certainly didn’t hurt us when he was out there.” Before the injury, Releford had begun to establish himself as one of the key members of Self ’s shrinking rotation. Now, the 6-foot-5 guard is fighting to get back into it. “In tight games, I don’t want to play six perimeter players,” Self said. “So I don’t know. He’s probably gonna have to get back into that mode of either beating Mario Little out or beating one of our perimeter players out.” Brady simply being Brady KU guard Brady Morningstar has enjoyed the most productive offense stretch of his senior season during the past couple of weeks. In a loss to Texas, Morningstar hit 4of-5 field goal attempts and finished with eight points. He followed that up with 14 points, on 5-of-9 shooting (4of-7 from three-point range) in a road win at Colorado and added 12 points on 5-of-7 shooting in Tuesday’s victory at Texas Tech. Despite his recent hot shooting, Self said Morningstar’s value to the team remained as high as ever. “He only scored four points against K-State and he was just as important in that game as he was the (others),” Self said. “But we need he and/or Tyrel (Reed) to be able to

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1B

knock down shots. That’s what they should be able to do and that’s what they’ve done consistently in their careers. He’s become very aggressive and certainly, when you’re aggressive and you’re a postfeeder, that’s usually good for your offense because guys have to guard you.”

Reed sore, Taylor fine Self said Thursday that senior guard Tyrel Reed was suffering from a sore left foot but added that the injury should not force the senior from Burlington to sit out any time soon. “He’s been nursing a sore foot for a month or so and it bothered him for the first time in a game in Lubbock (Texas), so I cut back on his minutes, but he’s still gonna practice, he’s still gonna play. He’s got a bone bruise. The only thing that will heal it would be time off and we don’t have time, so he’s gonna have to play with it.” Reed said Thursday that he may wear a boot when he’s not playing or practicing to take pressure off of the foot but confirmed that he would not miss any action. As for other injuries, Self said junior guard Tyshawn Taylor, who momentarily left the floor after twisting an ankle during Tuesday’s victory against Texas Tech, was fine and also would not miss any time. Reed an academic whiz KU’s Reed has been named to the 2010-11 Capital One Academic All-District 7 men’s basketball team it was announced Thursday by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA). Reed will now appear on the national ballot as a candidate for Capital One Academic All-America honors. Reed also has a chance to become the second-straight Jayhawk men’s basketball player to be named Academic All-American of the Year after Cole Aldrich earned that distinction last year. Daniels update DeAndre Daniels, a 6-foot8 senior forward from IMG Academies will remain at the Bradenton, Fla., school through the spring and not attend college until the fall, Zagsblog.net reports. Daniels had considered enrolling at either KU, Texas or Kentucky second semester. Nobody in Daniels’ camp is talking publicly.

SHAWNEE MISSION WEST SENIOR ERIN COPELAND (34) REACHES for the ball as Lawrence High sophomore Krista Costa, right, attempts to dribble away. The Vikings defeated the Lions, 64-34, on Thursday at LHS.

that he hoped the Firebirds would build on Thursday’s effort with Sunflower League and Regionals ahead. With Botello leading the way, the Firebirds jumped out early against Rural. Botello came out assertively, clasping at his opponent’s head before scoring a few takedowns and securing a second-round pin. “He’s just an animal when he’s on the mat sometimes,” Gillman said. “He sets the tone for our team (when he does that).” FSHS kept the line moving, getting pins from Maurice Jacobs, Andrew McLees, Ben Soukup and Jake Brown. Mitch McClune and Dylan Ediger both impressively recorded tech falls — wrestling’s equivalent of a mercy rule. “I told the kids, come out hard, aggressive and fast,” Gillman said. Pitted against BVNW with a shot to advance to the finals, the Firebirds showed promise early after a pin from Botello and a 13-9 win from Seth Orcutt, but lost six straight (including forfeits at 119 and 140). Spencer Wilson, the fourthranked 160-pounder in 6A, easily flattened his opponent to end the streak, but the Huskies won out to advance. With open slots at 119 and 140 already forcing to essentially give away 10 points, an unexpected injury ended up

costing the Firebirds five more. Junior Marcus Bones injured his shoulder during his first match, leaving the Firebirds with a vacant spot — and thus another forfeit — at 189-pounds. Those points proved costly in FSHS’s hard fought, 38-29 setback to Louisburg in the third place dual. The teams exchanged wins early, with the Firebirds scoring on a pin from McLees and lopsided wins from Orcutt and McCune. Then it was Wilson’s turn, where according to coach Gillman, he was aiming to notch his fifth tech fall of the season and get into the school’s record book. Wilson simply outclassed and overpowered his opponent on the way to a 16-0 tech fall and the school record for tech falls in a season. Using a bevy of moves, Wilson swiftly and repeatedly slammed his foe to the mat and nearly pinned him several times. During one of his many pin attempts, Wilson looked up and grinned at the crowd while his foe struggled beneath him. “Every day we’re making improvements in practice,” Botello said. “And I just think things are going really well for us right now.” The team’s five seniors — Brown, Ediger, Fraser, McCune and Porscha Radford — were acknowledged with their families before the beginning of the meet.

it’s not just the school or what’s on the helmet that sells a program, but it’s also who your son is gonna play for.” Kirby continued: “Playing time might be a very small factor in it, but the fact of the matter is, it’s about relationships and trust and (kids) believing in (the coaches) recruiting them. You know, there are a lot of schools that can offer playing time.” That fact jumped out right away to place kicker Alex Mueller, of Grapevine, Texas, who said he was impressed by the way so many talented prospects from all over the country had bonded before even becoming teammates at Kansas. “(What impressed me the most was) the amount of talent that is coming in, and how all the guys are wanting to become a family,” Mueller said. “A few guys have messaged me on Facebook already, and I got to talk to a few on the recruiting trip. It will be a great group of guys.”

This was the idea Gill had in mind when he took over at Kansas two Decembers ago. He said as much in his introductory speech: Recruit. Recruit. Recruit. Gill has done that now, and will continue to do it in the future. Now that he has revealed his method of choice — tapping speed, character and the best f it for Kansas above all else — Gill can shift his focus back to preparing to for his second season. “I think it’s an exciting time for Kansas,” Gill said. “We’re going to continue to move forward. I know late in the year (last year) we didn’t win many football games, but we definitely made progress. We will continue to do that and see that. I feel very confident in that.” Consider the prospects in the Class of 2011 on board. Said Killeen, Texas, quarterback Michael Cummings: “It seems like he brought in a lot of great talent from around the country and each player will make their mark on the program in one way or another.”

a really good team like that, you can’t make life easy for them or they’ll really hurt you.” The Vikings took a 31-8 lead into halftime on 12-of-20 shooting. The Lions managed just two field goals in the half, both by senior Tamiya Green. In the second half, the Lions were able to score the basketball better but never pulled within 25 points. Green led the way yet again for the Lions, scoring 15 points on 7-of-13 shooting and pulling down eight rebounds. Senior Emily Peterson added 11. In the locker room after the game, Wood urged his team to remain patient on offense. “I don’t care if we’re running through offense four or five times,” Wood said. “We wanted to make sure we got a really good look. I think we kind of got away from that,

Heat 104, Magic 100 O R L A N D O , F LA . — LeBron James had 51 points, 11 rebounds and eight assists, including a 23-point first quarter, to lead Miami to a victory over Orlando on Thursday night. It was a season high for James, whose scoring effort tied for the fifth most points of his career. The Heat exploited a thin Magic front line that was missing injured starting forward Brandon Bass. They led by as many as 23 points. Dwyane Wade added 15 points and Chris Bosh 13. Jameer Nelson led Orlando with 22 points. Dwight Howard had 17 points and 16 rebounds, but only one point after halftime and was just 3for-13 at the free throw line. Jason Richardson chipped in 16. The victory was the Heat’s fourth straight. The Magic lost for the fourth time in their last six and fell behind 2-1 in the season series with Miami.

ALL-STAR GAME

Pierce, Griffin named reserves NEW YORK (AP) — Blake Griffin is going to his first All-Star game, and Kevin Garnett matched an NBA record Thursday with his 14th straight selection as one of a record-tying four Boston Celtics headed for the midseason event. Rajon Rondo, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen will accompany Garnett, who equaled Jerry West, Shaquille O’Neal and Karl Malone for the most consecutive selections. The Celtics joined the 2006 Detroit Pistons as the only teams to have four players picked as reserves by the coaches. Griffin, the Rookie of the Year favorite of the Clippers, will become the first rookie All-Star since Yao Ming in 2003. Joining Griffin on the Western Conference team for the Feb. 20 game at Staples Center were Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili of the NBAleading Spurs; forwards Dirk Nowitzki of Dallas and Pau Gasol of the Lakers; and guards Deron Williams of Utah and Russell Westbrook of Oklahoma City, who joins Griffin as the lone first-time selections. Chris Bosh will go to Los Angeles with Miami teammates LeBron James and Dwyane Wade, who were elected as starters. The other East reserves picked were Atlanta’s Joe Johnson and Al Horford. The reserves were selected in voting by the head coaches in each conference, who had to vote for two forwards, two guards, a center and two play-

ers regardless of position. They went for the winning teams in the East, whose reserves are represented by just three teams. The voting was much more difficult in the West, where coaches bypassed the likes of Kevin Love, LaMarcus Aldridge, Zach Randolph and Lamar Odom at the forward spot. “There hasn’t been too many times where you’ve had this kind of competition at the top of the Eastern Conference with such good teams,” Wade said. “So looking at the AllStar team, you understand that most guys are going to be from a few teams. That’s how it should be in the Eastern Conference. The Western Conference is a different argument.” Tony Parker missed out despite being the secondleading scorer on the Spurs, who entered play Thursday with a 40-8 record. Veteran

Steve Nash of the Suns and the Warriors’ Monta Ellis, the league’s sixth-leading scorer, also fell short. “I think every year it’s hard for point guards to make it, because there are so many great point guards in this league, especially in the West,” Williams said. “There are always young guys that are coming into the league and it’s going to continue to be a fight every year. That’s another reason I feel so honored.” The starters were chosen by fan voting and announced last week. Orlando’s Dwight Howard, Chicago’s Derrick Rose and Knicks forward Amare Stoudemire are the other East starters, while the Lakers’ Kobe Bryant, Hornets guard Chris Paul, forwards Carmelo Anthony of Denver and Kevin Durant of Oklahoma City, and Houston center Yao Ming were the winners from the West. Yao is injured and Commis-

sioner David Stern will choose a replacement. That gives another chance to Love, who is averaging 21.4 points and a league-best 15.5 rebounds, and shooting 43.9 percent from three-point range. He has 34 straight double-doubles, but was undoubtedly hurt by his Minnesota Timberwolves’ 1137 record. But the coaches couldn’t overlook Griffin, even though the Clippers are also below .500. The No. 1 pick in the 2009 draft has been spectacular after sitting out last season following knee surgery, averaging 23 points and 12.7 rebounds while compiling a half season of highlights with his array of dunks. The East will be coached by the Celtics’ Doc Rivers, who said earlier Thursday that he hoped his four players would be rewarded and said he would play them all together. “That way we can run offense in the All-Star game,” Rivers said. “That’d be a first.” The Celtics (1953, ’62 and ’75); Lakers (’62 and ’98) and 76ers (’83) also had four AllStars. But only the Pistons, with Chauncey Billups, Richard Hamilton, Ben Wallace and Rasheed Wallace, had four reserves selected by the coaches. The Heat’s own Big Three was recognized when Bosh was selected to his sixth AllStar game, even though his numbers have dropped significantly in his first year since leaving Toronto.

Spurs 89, Lakers 88 L O S A N G E L E S — Antonio McDyess tipped in Tim Duncan’s missed jump shot right before the buzzer, and the San Antonio Spurs survived the Los Angeles Lakers’ late rally for a victory.

Tony Parker scored 21 points and Richard Jefferson added 18 in a meeting of the Western Conference’s top two teams. Manu Ginobili missed an open three-pointer and Tony Parker missed a floater in the lane on the Spurs’ final possession, but San Antonio got both rebounds.

Knicks fined for draft workouts GREENBURGH, N.Y. (AP) — The NBA f ined the New York Knicks $200,000 and team scout Rodney Heard $20,000 on Thursday for conducting illegal draft workouts. The league ruled that Heard, the Knicks’ director of East scouting, violated rules restricting contact between teams and players eligible for the draft in May 2007 and May 2010. Under the rules at that time, players were not eligible to be worked out for teams before the NBA’s predraft camp in May. The NBA had been investigating the Knicks since a

Ya h o o ! S p o r t s re p o r t i n October that Heard coordinated and conducted the secret workouts in suburban Atlanta. The report said former Kansas University AllAmerican Brandon Rush tore the ACL in his right knee during one of the sessions. The Knicks said in a statement they will abide by the decision and have no further comment. The league could also have handed down suspensions or made the Knicks forfeit draft picks, but apparently felt the violations weren’t severe enough.

BRIEFLY James sets Heat record in first quarter ORLANDO, FLA. — LeBron James had a record-setting first half against the Orlando Magic on Thursday night. James set a Miami Heat record with a 23-point first quarter, then set a personal best by hitting his first 11 shots of the game. James finished the half with 29 points, helping the Heat to a 55-45 lead at the break.

Raptors’ Kleiza done for season after surgery TORONTO — Linas Kleiza could miss up to a year after

Kleiza had missed Toronto’s past seven games. The former Missouri star averaged 11.2 points and 4.5 rebounds in 39 games this season. He had six games of 20 or more points, including a season-best 26 on Dec. 10 against Denver, which he matched nine days later against the Los Angeles Lakers. Kleiza signed an $18.8-million, four-year deal with Toronto in July.

Chiefs promote O-line coach K A N S A S C I T Y , M O . ( AP ) — Kansas City has hired its fourth offensive coordinator since head coach Todd Haley arrived two years ago, but nobody’s saying who will be calling the plays when the Chiefs take the field next season. The Chiefs on Thursday named offensive line coach Bill Muir as offensive coordinator to replace Charlie Weis, who was in Kansas City one season before leaving to become offensive coordinator for the University of Florida. Muir, who came to Kansas City with Haley in 2009, also worked with Haley for seven years with the New York Jets. He has been in the NFL in some capacity for 34 years, serving as both defensive and offensive coordinator. During a telephone news conference Thursday, Haley praised Muir for his role in helping Kansas City’s offense lead the league in rushing last season. Haley said Muir also has worked closely with quarterback Matt Cassel and will

continue to assist in his development. “The key thing here is that we get it right, and I feel like we got it right with Bill Muir,” Haley said. Haley took some heat in his first season after firing offensive coordinator Chan Gailey two weeks before the start of the 2009 season, then assuming the role himself. Haley — who had been offensive coordinator for Arizona when the Cardinals made it to the Super Bowl — later admitted that taking on the role was a big task for a rookie head coach. The Chiefs finished 4-12. After the 2009 season, Haley hired Weis, who had been his boss when both were with the Jets and who’d been fired the year before as head coach at Notre Dame. Weis was one of the NFL’s most respected coordinators, with three Super Bowl rings as offensive coordinator at New England. How much Weis had to do with the Chiefs’ success is open to conjecture, but play-

ers said he contributed greatly to the improvement that took Kansas City to a 10-6 record. Running back Jamaal Charles, wide receiver Dwayne Bowe and Cassel made the Pro Bowl after the Chiefs won their first AFC West title since 2003. Cassel’s improvement was dramatic; he had 16 TD passes and 16 interceptions when Haley was calling plays, but under Weis — until the last two games — he played nearly mistake-free. After word got out that Weis was leaving to become offensive coordinator at Florida, the offense faltered and Chiefs lost their final two games by lopsided scores to Oakland and, in the f irst round of the playoffs, to Baltimore. Haley said that Muir’s promotion will give the team a continuity it wouldn’t have had if someone from outside the organization had been brought in. That’s especially important for Cassel, who will be working under his fifth

offensive coordinator in four years. “The development of Matt Cassel is a key ingredient in us continuing to make progress,” Haley said. “We have a chance to go into a third full year relatively unchanged from a system terminology standpoint. On top of that, Matt and coach Muir have had to work really closely together over the last two years.” Before coming to Kansas City in 2009, Muir was offensive coordinator for seven seasons with Tampa Bay, including in 2003, when the Buccaneers won the Super Bowl. Muir said he has never had sole responsibility for calling offensive plays, but has been heavily involved in various aspects of play calling. “I think that really good play calling is the result of a staff that works very well not only offseason, but specifically in the season,” Haley said. “That’s when the play calling gets done. A staff that works well together in harmony and is on the same page.”

came.” In 2000, the Cleveland Browns came calling. “I kind of chuckle about it,” McCarthy said. “When I went into the interview, I thought for sure that I was ready to go. But fast-forward to Green Bay, and I went through the first year 1-4, then 4-8, and I know there was no way I was ready in 2000 to do this.” During this Super Bowl XLV week, riddled with weather disruptions, McCarthy’s mature, measured approach has made an impression. Clearly, the Packers players trust and respect him, even though McCarthy has never been to a Super Bowl before, either as a coach or spectator. He has been asked often this week about his hometown roots, growing up in the Pittsburgh neighborhood of Greenfield — and cheering for the Steelers. He hasn’t forgotten. McCarthy still donates each year to help pay the tuitions of needy students to St. Rosalia. When someone prefaced a question this week about McCarthy’s life being about to change, he seemed to frown. “My wife and I go to great lengths to keep a very fundamental household, and it will stay that way the rest of our lives,” he said. “This is a period of time professionally that we’re enjoying, but we’re parents first. “I don’t want to diminish why I’m here professionally. This is a period of time that I’m very blessed and grateful for. But at the end of the day, we’re still blue-collar people.” That perspective, the Packers have learned, has been everything they hoped for five years ago. And it’s time, Mike McCarthy has said this week, to bring the Lombardi Trophy home.

DALLAS — Green Bay receiver Donald Driver missed practice Thursday because of an injured thigh and probably will miss another. Packers coach Mike McCarthy told a pool reporter that Driver wanted to practice Thursday, but “I’m not taking any chances with him.” Driver missed a full game and parts of two others this season because of the same injury. Linebacker Erik Walden also missed practice because of a sprained ankle. He was hurt in the NFC championship game, and he tested it in practice Wednesday. McCarthy said Walden is likely to sit out more practices. “He was very sore, which is why we limited him today,” McCarthy said. “It’s up the air with him right now. We’ll see how he feels tomorrow. Even if he feels a lot better, he’ll be limited. I’m going to hold him back and give him every chance to be ready for the game.”

Steelers’ Keisel getting a lot of face time ——

Defensive end’s beard garnering attention By Dave Birkett Detroit Free Press

D A L L A S — Brett Keisel’s beard is famous, and that’s fine by him. It has a Facebook page (more than 22,000 followers at last count). It has been the subject of countless inquiries during Super Bowl media sessions this week. And Keisel, a starting defensive end for the Pittsburgh Steelers, is pushing for his beard to get an endorsement deal. “I’m trying to get Suave or someone to step up to the plate and make a beard shampoo and conditioner,” he said. “I think there are plenty of people in the country that don’t take the proper care of their facial hair, and I think it’s something that’s important that could be huge.” Keisel started growing his 4-inch-long beard after minicamp in June as a tribute to the Pittsburgh Penguins. “They grow their playoff beards out, and I saw those guys looking burly and thought, ‘You know what, after minicamp in June I’ve got seven months until the Super Bowl and we’re trying to win our seventh Super Bowl, so I’ll see if I can let this thing (grow) for seven months,’ “ he said. “And this is the result.” Though he denies using beard-enhancing drugs,

A REPORTER PULLS ON THE BEARD of Pittsburgh Steelers’ Brett Keisel during Super Bowl media day Tuesday in Arlington, Texas. Keisel said he has encountered maintenance issues with his scruff. “The worst part is hairballs in my mouthpiece,” he said. “I’m used to it now, and I have to brush it to the side and stroke it a little bit.” Keisel’s wife, Sarah, gave him a razor for Christmas, but it’s still in its package waiting to be opened sometime after Sunday’s game. “It’s coming off at some point,” Keisel said. “Hopefully we’ll win (and) I can go home and pull the Lombardi (Trophy) out of the beard for all the fans to see, and then I think I’ll have to whack it off or my wife might leave me.”

Steelers’ Pouncey misses practice FORT WORTH, TEXAS — Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey got treatment for his sprained left ankle while his teammates practiced Thursday for the Super Bowl. Pouncey’s availability is in question because of the injury sustained in the AFC championship. “It’s getting to be the witching hour for Maurkice,” coach Mike Tomlin told a pool reporter after practice. “He’s going to have to show us something very soon.”

Covert lunch date with old flame a bad idea Dear Annie: When families of a deceased person request that in lieu of flowers a contribution be made to a specific charity, the charity usually sends a notification of the contribution to the family and an acknowledgment to the donor. Should the family of the deceased also send a thankyou note to the donor? I was brought up to do so, but I seldom receive any acknowledgment of my anniesmailbox@creators.com donations from the family. — The last thing I want to do is Jay hurt him or ruin the trust he has had in me all these years. Am I acting like an infatuated teenager? — Mixed Emotions

Annie’s Mailbox

With Valentine’s Day arriving, ABC News turns to matters of the heart. Make that heart attacks. “A Barbara Walters Special: A Matter of Life and Death” (9 p.m., ABC) includes interviews with celebrities and notables about their experiences with open heart surgery. Robin Williams calls this group the “brotherhood of the cracked chest club.” Interviews with Williams, President Bill Clinton, David Letterman, Regis Philbin and Charlie Rose reveal very different men and their paths to near total heart disease and recovery. The side effects are often as emotionally draining as physically debilitating. “I would find myself busting into tears and sobbing uncontrollably,” recalls Letterman, a man not given to discussing his emotions in public. While all of the notables interviewed here are men, heart disease and the more than half a million openheart surgeries performed annually are not limited to the male gender. Heart surgeon Dr. Kathy Magliato tells Walters, “It’s astounding that people think that heart disease is a disease of men, when in fact, it kills more women.” ● Produced by Lisa Kudrow (“Friends”) “Who Do You Think You Are?” (7 p.m., NBC) returns for a second season. In the series, well-known celebrities trace their genealogical roots, discovering stories of inspiration and historical significance in the family tree. The season kicks off with Vanessa Williams and will feature Gwyneth Paltrow, Tim McGraw, Rosie O’Donnell, Steve Buscemi, Kim Cattrall, Lionel Richie and Ashley Judd in the coming weeks. ● Competing Super Bowl rivals may change from season to season, but TV advertisements remain the star of the show. “Super Bowl’s Greatest Commercials 2011” (8 p.m., CBS) looks back at some of the favorite spots as chosen by online ballot. Jim Nantz and Lara Spencer host. ● The Hallmark Channel anticipates Valentine’s Day with a 10-night movie countdown. Tonight’s offering, “A Valentine’s Date” (8 p.m., Hallmark), stars Elisa Donovan, Brad Rowe, Tom Skerritt, John Schneider, Tracey Gold and Fred Willard. ● HBO also looks forward to the big game by repeating “Lombardi” (5:30 p.m., HBO) a 2010 documentary profile of the coach who led the Green Bay Packers to victories in the very first two Super Bowl Games in 1967 and 1968. As I noted in my review of the film last year, “Lombardi” is more than a football film, it offers a “fascinating glance at male attitudes and behavior from the ‘Mad Men’ era.”

Tonight’s other highlights ● An old pal needs to prove his innocence on “NCIS: Los Angeles” (7 p.m., CBS). ● A Queens, N.Y., steakhouse gets an extreme makeover on “Kitchen Nightmares” (7 p.m., Fox). ● A blue powder brings deadly symptoms on “Fringe” (8 p.m., Fox). ● Evidence of a party gone mad ends up in the bottom of the river on “CSI: NY” (9 p.m., CBS). ● An outside expert arrives on “Gold Rush: Alaska” (9 p.m., Discovery). ● Scandals galore on the parody series “The Onion News Network” (9 p.m., IFC), preceded by two repeats (8 p.m. and 8:30 p.m.). ● Batiatus’ fortunes rise and fall on “Spartacus: Gods of the Arena” (9 p.m., Starz).

Dear Mixed: Yes. You admit that you would be furious if your husband did the same thing. No matter how innocent, it would undermine your trust, and you would never be sure he wasn’t interested in an affair. Be honest with yourself. You and Frank are flirting. We know it’s exciting, but you also are vulnerable to his attention, and there are no guarantees your husband won’t find out. The correspondence is enough of a risk, and if this were truly innocent, your spouses would know about it. You are asking for trouble with a capital T.

For Friday, Feb. 4: Focus on security this year. Security comes in many different forms. For many it is money; for others, it is emotional; still, many people find it through spirituality or religion — but for most people, it is a combination. If you are single, as a result, you will attract a new type of suitor. If you are attached, you and your sweetie will be talking more openly.

Dear Annie: Our children gave my husband and me a surprise anniversary party. They invited friends we had not seen in many years, including “Frank and Mary.” Frank and I were always good friends. We even had a minor crush on each other, although neither of us did anything about it. After the party, Frank and I exchanged e-mail addresses and cell phone numbers and have kept in touch. I have not mentioned this to my husband because he tends to be quite jealous and I didn’t want him to overreact. Here’s the problem, Annie: Frank has asked me on a lunch date, saying it would be nice for us to get together and talk about old times. I think it would be OK. I don’t intend to do it a second time, and we’re not meeting where we could be seen by someone who knows us. We’re sure our spouses will never find out. I know my husband would not approve of this, and to be perfectly honest, if the situation were reversed, I would be furious. I feel flattered that Frank has asked me. I don’t think it will do any harm, and I have no intention of letting it escalate. Does this seem sneaky? I see it as quite innocent. I love my husband and don’t intend to jeopardize our marriage.

No. 1 Ohio State 62, Michigan 53 C O L U M B U S , O H I O — Jared Sullinger hammered away inside for 19 points and 15 rebounds and Ohio State came back from a sluggish half to beat Michigan Thursday night, helping the Buckeyes open with 23 wins for the second time in school history. William Buford added 13 points as Ohio State (23-0, 100 Big Ten) extended its conference lead to three games. Tim Hardaway Jr. had 15 points, Darius Morris 12 and Jordan Morgan 10 for Michigan (13-9, 3-6), which fell to 122 all-time against No. 1s.

Scott Suggs had a careerhigh 18 points, including five three-pointers for Washington (15-6, 7-3 Pac-10) which lost its second straight. Oregon State (9-12, 4-6) took a 58-52 lead on Omari Johnson’s layup off an offensive rebound. After Isaiah Thomas made 2-of-3 free throws for the Huskies, Calvin Haynes made one for the Beavers.

The sophomore star had part of his shooting hand buried in tape and gauze to protect his pinky after it was bent backward against UCLA last week and still put together a complete performance.
