School task force renews resolve for mission By Andy Hyland firstname.lastname@example.org
With time running out before a deadline to make a recommendation to the board, a working group looking at consolidating schools in the
Lawrence district decided to press ahead with its original charge on Monday and is still asking for more data. The Lawrence school board has asked the Central and East Lawrence Elementary School Consolidation

Issues on table at Cedar Crest dinners
Working Group to recommend a way to reduce six elementary schools — Cordley, Hillcrest, Kennedy, New York, Pinckney and Sunset Hill — down to three or four within the next two years. Superintendent Rick Doll
A bill introduced in the Kansas Legislature last week would provide further protections for victims of stalking and domestic violence. The Kansas Attorney General’s Office and the Kansas Bureau of Investigation crafted House Bill 2613, which would make violations of protection from stalking and protection of abuse orders, commonly referred to as restraining orders, a level-5 felony. Such crimes are now misdemeanors. The bill would also allow judges to extend the amount of time protection orders are valid, up to life. Orders are now valid for up to one year, but victims have to reapply every year — and potentially face their abuser in court.
Kristen Beaudette of Kansas has been fighting for years for such changes. The father of Beaudette’s daughter, Ty Barnett, has been in and out of prison since 2003 for physically abusing the girl. Barnett had also spent five years in prison after pleading guilty to torturing an infant in Salina in 1995. The infant later died. Beaudette has changed her identity and done everything she can to hide from Barnett. “I’ve jumped through so many hoops,” said Beaudette. But Barnett is eligible for parole in June, and Beaudette fears having to confront him in court in order to apply for a new protection order. If the bill becomes law, victims like Beaudette would possibly have to go through the court process only once.
KBI deputy director Kyle Smith, who helped write the bill, said the legislation would be a welcome change for victims and advocates. “They deserve to have the system protect them,” Smith said. In Douglas County in 2010, there were 295 filings for protection of abuse orders, which is filed when those involved had a previous relationship. Protection from stalking orders — filed when there is no previous relationship between the offender and victim — tallied 219 in the county 2010. Both orders prevent someone from contacting the victim, who must prove repeated acts of harassment or abuse by the offender. — Reporter Shaun Hittle can be reached at 832-7173.

TOPEKA — Gov. Sam Brownback raised issues such as tax cuts and water policy in private meetings with legislators at his official residence, several lawmakers said Monday, although their accounts differed about the details. Brownback opened a dinner gathering Monday evening with two dozen legislators to an Associated Press reporter and photographer, and the event was consistent with descriptions of past events given earlier in the day by many of the 16 lawmakers interviewed. After a buffet-style dinner, Brownback’s remarks touched on legislative issues, such as taxes, education funding and water policy, mentioning a few specific proposals and taking a few questions. Brownback had seven meetings in January for Republicans on 13 legislative committees, inviting more than 90 lawmakers in all. Shawnee County District Attorney Chad Taylor, a Democrat, is investigating whether the gatherings violated the Kansas Open Meetings Act. He has said the legality of the meetings depends upon whether legislators discussed substantive legislative issues and how much interaction there was among them. The governor has said he’s confident the meetings did not violate the law. Asked afterward whether Monday evening’s session was typical, he said, “It wouldn’t be unusual.” When Brownback was asked about individual meetings in January, spokeswoman Sherriene Jones-Sontag, interrupted, saying, “I don’t think we can address specifics about meeting since the investigation’s going on.” The Open Meetings Act Please see MEETINGS, page 2A

Man pleads guilty to federal gun charge A 22-year-old Wichita man, who was convicted in connection with a 2010 Lawrence armed robbery, has pleaded guilty to a federal gun charge, according to U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom’s office. D’Andre Tomlin in federal court in Wichita on Monday pleaded guilty to one count of unlawful possession of a firearm after having a felony conviction. As part of his plea, Tomlin admitted that in September, he possessed a Heckler and Koch 9 mm pistol. A special agent with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives alleged Tomlin sold the pistol to an undercover officer. U.S. District Judge Eric Melgren is scheduled to sentence him April 25, and he faces a maximum 10-year prison sentence. Tomlin last September also had pleaded guilty to three counts of attempted

generally prohibits a voting majority of a legislative body from discussing government business without giving the public notice or access to the meetings. Taylor has said the act does not apply to Brownback as an individual, and alleged violations are a civil matter, not a criminal one. A person found to have knowingly broken the law can be fined up to $500 per incident. Monday evening’s meeting differed from previous ones because the legislators invited didn’t appear to be tied to any specific committees. Also, eight Democrats were in the group, including House Minority Leader Paul Davis, of Lawrence, who said he saw no Open Meetings Act violations. “I think we’re all safe,” Davis said.
Social dinners Legislator-guests sipped wine and ate a dinner of bacon-wrapped sirloin, carrots and roasted new potatoes, sitting in chairs in the first-floor living room and adjacent sunroom because the governor’s residence, Cedar Crest, doesn’t have a big enough formal dining room.

Crest meetings were social occasions, but it also has said top aides were present to keep legislators from having discussions that might violate the meetings law. At Monday evening’s event, Brownback mentioned the act and asked Reps. Jan Pauls, a Hutchinson Democrat, and Lance Kinzer, and Olathe Republican, both attorneys, to make sure it was observed. In discussing taxes and education funding, Brownback kept his remarks general. But he mentioned a proposal to use new gambling revenues to pay off bonds issued previously by the state, and proposals on water policy. Colyer briefly discussed the administration’s push to overhaul the state’s $2.9 billion Medicaid program, which provides health coverage for the poor, disabled and elderly. In interviews earlier in the day, some Republican legislators who’d attended earlier events described similar dinners, with Brownback making remarks and taking questions. But their accounts differed as to how general Brownback’s remarks were and how many questions he received, and a few said they remember the events only as social occasions.
Lawmakers offended Taylor sent a letter last week to Brownback’s office and all legislators, directing them to maintain records and electronic files that could be potential evidence, urging them recreation centers and other facilities. Corliss said Parks and Recreation services will not be affected in a manner noticeable to the public. “But there will be some substantial inconvenience for Parks and Recreation employees,” Corliss said. “It was a significant part of their operations.” Corliss said the building is covered by insurance, but the city did not have replacement insurance on the vehicle. “That is just something
L AWRENCE J OURNAL -W ORLD to “err on the side of preservation.” His letter rankled House Speaker Mike O’Neal, a Hutchinson Republican and attorney, who said Taylor should have worked through legislative leaders to get information. O’Neal has urged colleagues not to respond immediately to Taylor’s letter, and he’s noted that the Kansas Constitution protects lawmakers from facing subpoenas in civil cases while they’re in session. He and Senate President Steve Morris, a Hugoton Republican, said they’re consulting with legislative attorneys on a response to Taylor’s letter. “My hope is that we would have one response to the district attorney,” O’Neal said. Taylor said he’s puzzled by O’Neal’s reaction and hopes legislators will avoid “hiding behind legislative immunity.” Taylor wrote, “we do not believe that this needs to be an adversarial investigation.” Several legislators said they don’t have materials or files to preserve as evidence, outside of the invitations from the governor’s office — and some said they threw them away soon afterward, as they normally do. Senate Majority Leader Jay Emler, a Lindsborg Republican, said if he had any emails related the meetings, they probably were deleted before Taylor’s letter arrived Friday. “I get — literally — 30,000 emails a year,” Emler said. “I don’t keep them all.” we’ll have to deal with as part of the budget process,” Corliss said. Late Monday afternoon, investigators with Lawrence-Douglas County Fire Medical were still trying to determine a cause for the fire.

BRIEFLY Governor submits order reorganizing 3 agencies
TOPEKA — Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback has formally submitted an executive order to legislators to reorganize three state agencies that deal with social services. The order signed Monday LEGISLATURE by Brownback is part of his administration’s plan to overhaul the state’s $2.9 billion Medicaid program, which provides health coverage for the poor, disabled and elderly. The changes sought by Brownback will take effect July 1, unless one chamber votes to reject his order by April 6. The order would shrink the Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services so it would focus on services to children and families, removing it from involvement with Medicaid. Services for disabled and mentally ill would move from SRS into the Department on Aging, which also would pick up some regulatory responsibilities from the Department of Health and Environment.

Panel backs Kansas House proposal TOPEKA — A Kansas House committee took little time Monday in endorsing a proposal to redraw the chamber’s 125 districts to reflect changes in the 2010 census. The plan would collapse three current House districts and create three new ones in the Kansas City metropolitan area. Members advanced the bill on a bipartisan, voice vote after barely 10 minutes of meeting. House Speaker Mike O’Neal, chairman of the redistricting committee, said the decision was quicker than he anticipated, and it’s possible the full House could debate the proposal yet this week.

City commissioners previously had agreed to accept applications for 13 pieces of city-owned property across the city, but today commissioners are being asked to move forward on four specific proposals. They are
A community orchard by Skyler Adamson and the Lawrence Fruit Tree project. The site will be near 13th and Garfield streets and along the Burroughs Creek Trail in east Lawrence. Horn said plans call for the orchard to be open for free picking by community members. “People can just hop off their bike and pick some fruit to sustain them,” Horn said. Members of the Fruit Tree Project also plan to host frequent workshops at the site to teach community members about fruit production. In addition to fruit trees, the site, which will take a couple of seasons to develop, is expected to have several types of berry plants and bushes.
A community garden at John Taylor Park at 200 N. Seventh St. in North Lawrence. Horn said the community garden will be unique because it will reserve several plots of ground to rent to children. The project, proposed by Justina Gonzalez, is planning to partner with the nearby Ballard Community Center.
A neighborhood garden at 1304 and 1315 Pa. The garden will be run by Michael Morley and the Sustainability Action Network. It will be open to neighborhood residents, and the project will include frequent classes on gardening and food preservation.
A larger scale farming operation on about 1 acre of ground near the Kansas River levee at North Eighth
and Oak streets in North Lawrence. The project will be run by Johnson County Community College’s Sustainable Agriculture Program, which has about half dozen or more Lawrence residents as students. Plans call for 50 percent of all the produce grown on the site to be donated to Lawrence public schools or to a local food bank, if school district officials aren’t in a position to use the produce, said Stu Shafer, coordinator for the college’s sustainable agriculture program. “We really want to work with the schools,” said Shafer. “There are lots of studies that show kids who are exposed to fresh fruit and vegetables at a young age will eat more of them.” JCCC plans to partner with the Community Mercantile’s Education Foundation to get the food into the schools. If city commissioners approve the four projects on Tuesday, Horn will work to create essentially rent-free license agreements for the groups to use the city property. The growers will have to pay for any city water their crops require, but Horn said the city is seeking grant opportunities to pay for installation of water meters and hydrants on some of the sites. Originally, Horn and the Douglas County Food Policy Council had envisioned having farms on all 13 sites that were proposed. But Horn said upon further review several of those sites had more challenges than originally thought when it came to soil quality or water availability. “We decided to hit the pause button on some of the more complicated sites,” Horn said. “But we hope to make larger tracts available next year.” Commissioners meet at 6:35 p.m. today at City Hall.

TOPEKA — A parade of voting rights advocates on Monday urged legislators to reject a proposal by Secretary of State Kris Kobach to require that new voters show proof of U.S. citizenship to register to vote starting June 15. The adKobach vocates said the proof of citizenship requirement would be in place too soon for many people to get registered to vote in the August primaries and the November general election. And, they said, the requirement would add to confusion about voting on top of the state’s new law requiring photo ID to vote. “We need to fix now what has been implemented before we jump into the next big obstacle,” Louis Goseland of the KanVote Coalition told the House Elections Committee.

cal nurse in a Kansas City hospital. In December 2010, the cancer returned. She had four months of chemotherapy followed by three months of a combination of radiation treatments and chemotherapy. Following the treatments, a test showed no tumors and she was told once again last summer that she was in remission. “Everything looked good. My doctors thought it was over,” she said. But in November, the cancer was back and worse than ever. “I couldn’t handle it anymore. I just wanted to end my life,” she said. Her oncologist suggested seeing a neurologist and he suggested a pain pump that would provide medication 24/7. She had one implanted on Dec. 2, and Kopp said the surgery was very difficult but now she’s pain free. “That has made a huge difference in my life, being able to focus and stay optimistic and be as active as I possibly can. It made a world of difference,” she said. She’s undergoing chemotherapy treatments and taking life one day at a time. She’s found help
Goseland and others argued the state isn’t prepared to provide poor Kansans with free birth certificates and other records needed to register in time. If approved, House Bill 2437 would require people registering to vote for the first time in Kansas to provide proof of their citizenship. The effective date would be June 15, about one month before the July 17 closing date for voter registration in the August primaries. When the Legislature last year approved the new law requiring photo ID to vote, it set the proof of citizenship requirement for voter registration for Jan. 1, 2013. But Kobach wants to move that up six months, saying voter registration increases sharply in a presidential election year. “If we are serious about ensuring that only U.S. citizens are in that wave and that alien voters do not cancel out the votes of U.S. citizens, we have to have the protection in place now,” Kobach told the committee last week.

having people do well with chemotherapy for long-term survival,” said Dr. Michelle Affield of Lawrence Memorial Hospital’s Oncology Center. “The survival rates haven’t changed for a long time for pancreatic cancer while other cancers are making better progress.” She said the best chance for a cure is surgery, but the cancer has to be caught early before moving outside the pancreas. If surgery is not an option, then doctors typically prescribe chemotherapy and radiation treatments. Affield said the symptoms typically do not show up until the disease has progressed, and a classic one is jaundice or a yellowish color of the skin. Sometimes, there are vague symptoms that are thought to be indigestion or abdominal pains. That’s how Kopp says she got lucky. She was suffering pain and thought it might be a gallbladder problem. She also had lost weight due to a lack of appetite but had attributed that to stress. A gastroenterologist ran a test and found the mass on her pancreas. She was referred to a Kansas City oncologist who didn’t give her much hope. She decided to get a second opinion at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York City, where she is originally from. That doctor was more optimistic and so she decided to have surgery there. They took out two-thirds of her pancreas and the lymph nodes surrounding it. Out of 20 lymph nodes, only one had cancer cells in it. “I came out very, very lucky,” she said. She had seven months of chemotherapy and then was in remission. She went back to work as a techni-
Advancing proof of citizenship draws opposition
As older farmers retire and younger ones find it too expensive to start farming, keeping land in agriculture production can be difficult. On Thursday, a forum will be held for rural land owners to learn about what options are available to help pass agriculture land onto the next generation. The forum will be from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. in Building 21N at the Douglas County Fairgrounds, 2110 Harper St. Hosted by the Douglas County Food Policy — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be Council, Douglas County reached at 832-6362.

The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network is a nonprofit advocacy organization that was founded in 1999. It’s mission is to advance research, support patients, and create hope for those affected by pancreatic cancer. The Kansas City affiliate has two main fundraisers each year:
PurpleStride 5k run/walk event in April. This year’s event is April 21 in Overland Park.
Night of Hope, an event that includes a dinner and silent and live auctions, in November. To learn more, visit pancan.org/kansascity or call 877-2726226. through the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network’s Kansas City affiliate, which raises awareness about the disease and money for research. It also provides resources for patients and families. “It gives me a focus on trying to raise enough money so we can take this disease off the bottom of the list of people that survive. We need more funding for research so perhaps it can get diagnosed earlier,” she said. Kopp was among 1,100 people who participated in the network’s inaugural PurpleStride 5K event last spring and it raised $100,000. She also shared her story during the event to provide hope for other survivors. “My faith is really what has gotten me through a lot of this,” she said. “God saved me, so shame on me if I didn’t do something to help someone else.” — Health reporter Karrey Britt can be reached at 832-7190.

Douglas County, the forum will cover how land trusts work, local funds for land conservation, protection programs for farm and ranchland, conservation easements and incentive programs for beginning farmers. Speakers also will discuss the importance of estate planning. To attend, contact Eileen Horn at 330-2873 or ehorn@douglas-county. com.

While it’s hard to provide a perfect philosophical balance and space limitations would make it difficult to use two cartoons each day, we are glad to hear your perspective and will take it into consideration. The reality is that even the most conservative columnists and cartoonists are poking fun at Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich right now.

Division Chief Eve Tolefree, a LawrenceDouglas County Fire Medical spokeswoman, said when medics arrived, the person was no longer trapped under the trailer that had fallen in the 3000 block of Winston Drive, north of Peterson and Arrowhead drives. The accident was reported about 1 p.m. Monday. Medics at the scene told dispatchers the person’s injuries were not life-threatening. Additional information about the patient was not available later Monday.
The Journal-World does not print accounts of all police reports filed. The newspaper generally reports: • Burglaries, only with a loss of $1,000 or more, unless there are unusual circumstances. To protect victims, we generally don’t identify them by name. • The names and circumstances of people arrested, only after they are charged. • Assaults and batteries, only if major injuries are reported. • Holdups and robberies.

U.S. closes Syrian embassy as diplomacy collapses By Bradley Klapper and Elizabeth A. Kennedy Associated Press
BEIRUT — The U.S. closed its embassy in Syria and Britain recalled its ambassador to Damascus on Monday in a new Western push to Assad get President Bashar Assad to leave power and halt the murderous grind in Syria — now among the deadliest conflicts of the Arab Spring. Although the diplomatic effort was stymied at the U.N. by vetoes from Russia and China, the moves by the U.S. and Britain were a clear message that Western powers see no point in engaging with Assad and now will seek to bolster Syria’s opposition. “This is a doomed regime as well as a murdering regime,” British Foreign Secretary William Hague told lawmakers as he recalled his country’s ambassador from Syria. “There is no way it can recover its credibility internationally.” President Barack Obama said the Syrian leader’s departure is only a matter of time. “We have been relentless in sending a message that it is time for Assad to go,” Obama said during an interview with NBC. “This is not going to be a matter of if, it’s going to be a matter of when.” The most serious violence Monday was reported in Homs, where Syrian government forces, using tanks and machine guns, shelled a makeshift medical clinic and residential areas on the third day of a relentless assault, killing a reported 40 people, activists said. More than a dozen others were reported killed elsewhere. Those deaths followed
Senate campaign ad draws criticism LANSING, MICH. — Criticism of a Senate campaign ad featuring a young Asian woman talking in broken English about China taking away American jobs grew Monday as some warned it could revive discrimination against Asian-Americans. Republican Senate hopeful Pete Hoekstra began taking heat after his ad targeting Democratic incumbent Debbie Stabenow ran statewide Sunday before the Super Bowl. “Mr. Hoekstra may believe that his ad is just a way to express his political goals. But it does so in a manner that points the finger at Asian-Americans and Pacific Islanders for our nation’s problems,” said Thomas Costello, president and CEO of the Michigan Roundtable for Diversity and Inclusion, a 70-year-old civil rights organization in Detroit. “All of us need to be vigilant in the words we use and images we portray to avoid giving tacit permission for racist behavior.” The ad was created by media strategist Fred Davis of California-based Strategic Perception Inc., known for both Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder’s successful “one tough nerd” ads and for the 2010 “demon sheep” web ad attacking Tom Campbell in California’s Republican Senate primary.
a regime onslaught in Homs that began Saturday, the same day Syria’s allies in Russia and China vetoed a Western- and Arab-backed resolution aimed at trying to end the crackdown on dissent. Some 200 people died, the highest death toll reported for a single day in the uprising, according to several activist groups. Even as the U.S. steps up pressure on Assad to halt the violence and relinquish power, Obama said a negotiated solution was possible, without recourse to outside military intervention. Later, however, White House spokesman Jay Carney said the administration was taking “no options off the table.”

Corporate profits not what they seem NEW YORK (AP) — Is the great profit engine of corporate America running out of steam? While other parts of the economy struggled the past two years, large companies managed to rack up higher profits quarter after quarter. Now reality is catching up with big business. As companies close their books on the final three months of last year, the big ones that make up the Standard & Poor’s 500 stock index appear likely to earn about $230 billion. That would be $12.6 billion more than a year earlier.
But the increase, 5.8 percent, is less than half the speed at which quarterly profits grew the first nine months of 2011. In the average quarter since the beginning of 2010, earnings have grown five times as fast. Analysts expect profit growth to accelerate later this year. But so far, almost all the growth comes from two companies, one of them among America’s most favorite, the other among its most hated — Apple and the bailed-out insurance company AIG. Take away those two
companies and profits for the remaining 498 are expected to grow a measly 1.1 percent, according to FactSet, a provider of financial data. The immediate future looks about the same. For this quarter, which ends March 31, profits for the S&P 500 are expected to be up about 1 percent from the year before. And that’s with Apple and AIG thrown in. “Were the economy to sustain a shock, this makes us more vulnerable,” says Barry Knapp, chief U.S. stock strategist at Barclays Capital.

Iran-Latin America ties draw U.S. focus
Turf battle The city needs to get control of artificial turf installations on both commercial and residential property.
ity officials need to regain control of their turf. We’re talking about artificial turf and its usage at both commercial and residential locations. Tonight, Lawrence city commissioners will be discussing artificial turf that has been installed by local developer Thomas Fritzel at a new apartment complex and at a residential property he owns in Old West Lawrence. Although Fritzel and his attorney maintain that the turf is friendly to the environment and that people might learn to like it if they gave it a chance, there are questions that must be answered before the city allows expanded use of the material. The artificial turf issue came to the city’s attention after Fritzel installed the fake grass around an apartment complex at Sixth Street and Frontier Road. Although crews were informed by city inspectors while the work was under way that the turf didn’t conform to city code, the developers chose to continue the installation and ask later to have the rules changed to accommodate the turf. City planning staff members apparently weren’t impressed by this approach of asking forgiveness instead of permission and are recommending that the developer be required to tear out thousands of square feet of the artificial turf. The developers say the city should allow the apartment turf to remain as a test case for the material. Planners contend that more limited use of the turf would be a more prudent way to test the turf’s viability as a landscape material. They are concerned not only about long-term maintenance and appearance of the turf but also with studies that indicate that some artificial turf will have a long-term detrimental impact on the soil it covers. Of even greater concern, however, is the fact that the city has no regulations concerning the installation of artificial turf in residential neighborhoods. Local residents are probably much less concerned about the use of artificial turf around an apartment complex or office building than they are about any large installation of fake grass by their nextdoor neighbors. The city planning director said “time will tell whether we need to address” residential uses, but the time to address the issue is now, before any widespread use of artificial turf occurs in residential neighborhoods. As city officials have pointed out, there are many xeriscaping and native plant options that reduce water usage while maintaining an attractive landscape. Limited use of artificial turf may be an acceptable option for both commercial and residential property, but the city needs to set — and enforce — reasonable regulations that address both the aesthetic and environmental issues connected with the material.

Latin America rarely comes up as a major issue in U.S. presidential races, but this time it will: There are growing signs that Iran’s rising presence in the region will become a contentious election topic. Republican hopeful Mitt Romney and leading Republicans in Congress are stepping up their attacks on President Barack Obama for allegedly not doing enough to stop what they see as Iran’s intention to use Latin America as a launching pad for terrorist attacks against the United States. The issue is drawing growing attention in Washington. On Thursday, as Iran launched its own regionwide Spanish-language TV network in Latin America — a follow-up to President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s fifth visit to the region in as many years — the Republican-controlled House Foreign Affairs Committee held hearings about “Iran’s agenda in the Western Hemisphere.” The hearings came hours after U.S. National Intelligence chief James Clapper stated that Iranian officials “are now willing to conduct an attack in the United States.” Clapper did not explicitly suggest that such attacks would come from Latin America, but Republican congressional leaders did. House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ileana Ros Lehtinen, R-Fla., said in her opening statement that Iran’s alliance with Venezuela, Nicaragua, Cuba and Ecuador

In addition, hardliners stress that Iran-backed terrorist groups such as Hezbollah are likely to use friendly countries in Latin America as bases from which to prepare terrorist attacks elsewhere in the region.” “can pose an immediate threat by giving Iran a platform in the region to carry out attacks against the United States, our interests and allies.” Recalling last year’s U.S. government disclosure of a plot by Iran’s Quds Force to kill the Saudi ambassador on U.S. soil, and a reported 2007 scheme by an Iranian diplomat in Mexico to launch a cyber-attack against the United States, Ros Lehtinen added that “the fact that the military arm of a state-sponsor of terrorism has its operatives in multiple countries in our hemisphere is certainly
cause for alarm.” In his testimony to the committee, University of Miami researcher Jose Azel warned of a nightmare scenario in which Iran could place nuclear weapons aimed toward U.S. territory in Venezuela — much like the Soviet Union began to build nuclear bases in Cuba during the 1962 missile crisis . Norman A. Bailey, a Reagan administration official, said Venezuela is helping Iran circumvent international financial sanctions through the use of the Venezuelan financial system. In addition, hard-liners stress that Iran-backed terrorist groups such as Hezbollah are likely to use friendly countries in Latin America as bases from which to prepare terrorist attacks elsewhere in the region. Argentina has charged that Hezbollah, with Iran’s assistance, carried out the deadly bombings against the Israeli Embassy and a Jewish community center in Buenos Aires in 1992 and 1994. Romney has lashed out against Obama for allegedly failing to respond to Ahmadinejad’s ties to Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, and in a Nov. 22 Republican debate, he warned that Hezbollah’s activities “throughout Latin America” pose “a very significant and imminent threat” to the United States. The Obama administration says Iran is a latent threat in Latin America, rather than a clear and present danger, and that it is watching Iran’s
activities in the region closely. U.S. officials also warn against a U.S. over-reaction to unconfirmed reports about Iran’s activities there. Remember the weapons of mass destruction fiasco that led to the U.S. invasion of Iraq, officials say privately. Furthermore, a senior State Department official told me that Ahmadinejad is increasingly weak at home and isolated internationally and may be exaggerating the importance of his ties with Latin America “out of desperation” to show his people at home that he has not become an international pariah. My opinion: It would be much better if Latin America came up in presidential debates in the context of a positive agenda, with proposals by the candidates to create a Trans-American Partnership, much like the ambitious Trans-Pacific Partnership free trade plan that Obama recently proposed for Pacific Rim countries. But I’m afraid that, even without an escalation of the Iran conflict — such as Israel launching a preventive attack against Iran’s nuclear facilities and Iran retaliating by striking against Israeli civilian targets in Latin America, like it did in Argentina two decades ago — the Iran-Latin America connection will overshadow a much-needed discussion on enhancing U.S. economic ties with Latin America. — Andres Oppenheimer is a Latin America correspondent for the Miami Herald.
OLD HOME TOWN
From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Feb. 7, 1912: YEARS “Gus Miller, of 824 AGO Maine street and IN 1912 porter of the Ober Clothing store, had a narrow escape from electrocution last night when he was struck by the end of a broken trolley wire at the corner of Henry [now Eighth] and Tennessee streets. Mr. Miller was riding home on his bicycle close behind a west bound car when the trolley wire broke and the end of it struck him and knocked him from his wheel.” — Compiled by Sarah St. John

Health plea To the editor: As a mental health client and advocate, I would like to focus attention on the decimation of services for the mentally ill that has occurred over the past few years. I know this community has a great capacity to stand up against injustice as exemplified by its demands for rape victim services at Lawrence Memorial Hospital and its fight to save our local SRS office. Now, I plead for your help as you consider a few of the things facing the mentally ill in our community: 1. Significant reductions in state hospital beds that lead to waiting lists. 2. No mental health unit at LMH. Although successfully provided in the past, it was closed because it “lost money.” Help me to understand what a “community hospital” means. 3. Community mental health centers, like our Bert Nash Center, have seen their state funding slashed 90 percent! 4. Many of our mentally ill have limited resources and thus rely on Medicaid to help meet their mental health care needs. A recently announced modification to state Medicaid recipients eliminates mental health services. 5. The judicial system has become the “entry point” for “services” for far too many of our mentally ill citizens. Once in this system, they languish and deteriorate in our
jails and prisons. Homelessness is another dismal alternative. I weep for the suffering I am seeing among our community’s mentally ill. Will you, my fellow citizens, rise up once more against a great moral injustice and help end this outrage against some of our most vulnerable citizens? Please! Bill Simons, Lawrence
Gun sense To the editor: I read, with dismay, the Feb. 1 article in the JournalWorld that there is a move in the Kansas Legislature to allow concealed weapons on college campuses. I’ve always been wary of the concealed carry law, but to expand it to college campuses seems a bit extreme to me. What’s next? Nursery schools? Day care? I remember when concealed carry was passed, but I was totally in the dark until I read this article that it allowed people with vision disorders and physical disabilities to also carry a gun. A few years ago, I had major corrective ocular surgery. I think of myself before that and there was little chance that I could have used a concealed weapon effectively. At the least, I would have needed scattered birdshot, at best, a cluster bomb to ward off an assailant. I think the same limits would apply to anyone afflicted with Parkinson’s disease, mul-

How unfair to call upon children to cast lots when adults don’t have courage to face each other. For Valentine’s Day, I’m comfortable just being in the arms of God, aka, arms of love. Love is here. Love is strong. That’s the lesson that ought to come first. Wouldn’t it be something if the testimony of Lawrence was about love and not about sex or sexual orientation? Lessons. If you stood ‘em all up in a row and asked me, I’d say sex and sexual orientation are the least of these. But... the greatest? Is love.

tiple sclerosis or any other physical disability that restricts bodily movement and quick response to a dangerous situation. I question this section of the law, and the law itself, which does not consider the time of reaction for a disabled person to ward off an attacker and may bring greater danger to the disabled person. When I moved to Kansas 22 years ago, I knew its residents to be straightforward, hard working, and with a broad streak of common sense. Now, it seems many have been duped and shoved aside by wild-eyed ultraconservatives, and pseudo Christians whose actions seem orchestrated by the Mad Hatter. Jack Ozegovic, Lawrence

Despite loss, Jayhawks move up (!) in poll By Gary Bedore firstname.lastname@example.org
Bill Self isn’t a bit surprised his Kansas University basketball team, which lost on Saturday at Missouri, actually jumped a spot from No. 8 to 7 in this week’s AP poll. He’s in agreement with voters that the Jayhawks (185, 8-2) are a better team today than before Saturday’s 74-71 setback in Mizzou Arena.
Kansas softball confident pitching improved
“Three things we left the game with ... a.) They are really good; b.) We’ve got to close; and c.) We’re really good,” Self said Monday. He sounded a lot more upbeat than after one of KU’s five losses this season — 8074 to Davidson on Dec. 19 in Sprint Center in Kansas City, Mo. “After Davidson? It was, ‘They’re good. We stink. We’re soft. We don’t care. We don’t like each other.’ I
don’t feel that. If anything, I’m leaving Columbia thinking, ‘Hey we’ve got a chance to have a really good team,’’’ Self said. “When we left Davidson, my deal was, ‘We may not win a league game.’ I feel a lot of positives in leaving Missouri. I didn’t see any positives in getting our butt beat in Kansas City.” He had great praise Monday for his two veteran leaders — Thomas Robinson,
who scored 25 points and grabbed 13 rebounds in 35 minutes versus MU, and Tyshawn Taylor, who had 21 points, three assists and six turnovers in 38 minutes. “He’s getting to where he can put the ball down and get to the hole a lot better,” Self said of the 6-foot-10 Robinson, who on Monday was one of 20 players named to the midseason watch list for the Oscar Robertson Trophy, which goes to college bas-
ketball’s player of the year as voted by the U.S. Basketball Writers Association. “He has a great heart, good motor, tries hard. He’s a stud kid having a tremendous year. His second half against Missouri (19 points, six boards) is as good a half as a guy’s played that I’ve seen. He didn’t get easy baskets. He had to earn every one of them. I’m proud of
I feel a lot of positives in leaving Missouri. I didn’t see any positives in getting our butt beat in Kansas City.”

Good news for the Kansas University softball program: Junior Maggie Hull brings her .346 batting average, 14 doubles, nine home runs and 49 RBIs back to the lineup. Even better news: With three new pitchers on board, the Jayhawks are confident they have a better shot of turning all the runs she generates into victo- Hull ries. “ P i tching is a big part of the game,” Hull said. “We definitely saw that last year in games. We were putting up five, six, seven or more runs and still losing. That’s frustrating. This is the first year our pitching is going to meet our offensive production.” The Kansas pitching staff had the most walks, fewest strikeouts and second-worst ERA in the Big 12 last season. Third-year head coach Megan Smith is counting on three pitchers to turn Hull into a prophet. Freshman Alicia Pille from Royse City, Texas, earned District 13-4A MVP honors after amassing 16 shutouts, nine no-hitters, three perfect games and 431 strikeouts as a senior, when she compiled a 0.32 ERA. Morgan Druhan transferred to Kansas from South Alabama, where she went 10-6 with a 2.77 ERA and 143 strikeouts in 1161⁄3 innings last season. Emily Stokes, a freshman from Hamilton City, Calif., struck out 1,331 batters as a four-year all-league selection. Smith expressed excitement about Druhan because “she brings experience, poise and confidence.” But Pille is expected to be the team’s ace. “Alicia Pille looks phenomenal right now,” Smith said. “You’re going to hear that name a lot, I suspect. She has looked really good in practice. She’s a dominant pitcher, and she’s a bulldog in the circle, and that’s what we need. We’re excited how deep the pitching staff is, how dynamic. That’s what we’ve lacked the last two years.” Hull expressed similar sentiments. “I’m confident in the pitching because we have a great

from Lawrence High’s girls basketball team one day look back on their 2011-12 season, Monday’s home game against Shawnee Mission West will be one they go out of their way to forget. It was a burn-the-tape — heck, burn-this-after-reading — kind of night. The Lions had more turnovers (23) than field-goal attempts (22) and lost, 41-25, to the Vikings. LHS coach Nick Wood said those numbers were hard to fathom, and a lack of composure led to his team’s trials against SMW (5-9). The Lions (6-9) didn’t value the basketball, Wood said, and instead played hurried. “It looked to me like every single time we had the ball on offense, it looked like there were 10 seconds to go in the
— LHS girls basketball coach Nick Wood game, we were down by one, and we were freaking out because nobody knew what to do,” the coach said after his team went 10-for-22 from the floor. The Lions went just 5-for11 in the first half, when they had 14 turnovers, and trailed 19-12 after two quarters. They didn’t score their first basket until 1:45 was left in the first quarter and Anna Wright hit a three-pointer to cut West’s lead to 6-3. Senior Bri Anglin hit a baseline jumper in the final seconds of the first quarter, and Wright even drilled a threepointer on the opening possession of the second quarter to tie the game at 8, but that was
as close as Lawrence would get as turnovers and long, grinding possessions became the norm. “We just didn’t settle in and run our stuff. It’s frustrating to see,” Wood said. “We did not execute at all.” The performance was a far cry from how LHS had played just six days before in a victory at Leavenworth. Junior Monica Howard said the team’s mental focus was a problem versus the Vikings. “We weren’t taking care of the ball. We were just handing it to them,” Howard said. “We didn’t seem to care like every possession mattered.” Lawrence is 0-2 since both Emma Kelly and Krista Costa have been out because of knee injuries, but Wood said at some point the Lions have to get past it. “It’s not an excuse that we don’t have two of our guards Please see LHS GIRLS, page 3B

NORMAN, OKLA. (AP) — Sandwiched between an emotionally charged victory against archrival Kansas University and a top-10 showdown with first place on the line, No. 4 Missouri faced a test of its collective focus. The Tigers got a passing grade — barely. Marcus Denmon scored 25 points, Ricardo Ratliffe added 15 points and 10 rebounds, and No. 4 Mizzou claimed first place in the Big 12 by edging Oklahoma, 71-68, on Monday night. “We understand that this game was just as important as the last one,” Denmon said. “Pretty much, we have a veteran group and we just wanted to make sure everybody came out and understood how important this game would be for us to play after a big win like the one at home against Kansas.” Coach Frank Haith required his players to report to a hotel by 2 a.m. after their late-night victory against the then-No. 8 Jayhawks, trying to temper the celebration and get a head start on a road game less than 48 hours later against an opponent they had beaten by 38 points earlier this season. Asked whether it was the right move, Denmon and Ricardo Ratliffe looked at each other and didn’t say a word. Finally, Denmon answered and got a pat on the back from his first-year coach. “Whether I wanted to go to the hotel or not, I understood,” Denmon said. “I understood that it was a good Please see MIZZOU, page 3B

Chiefs hire Daboll as offensive coordinator KANSAS CITY, MO. (AP) â€” The Kansas City Chiefs hired Brian Daboll as the teamâ€™s new offensive coordinator Monday, bringing in a familiar face for new head coach Romeo Crennel. Daboll spent last season in the same job for the Miami Dolphins, and the previous two years serving as Clevelandâ€™s offensive coordinator. He worked with Crennel when both were with the Patriots.
â€œBrian is a fine football coach and offensive mind,â€? Crennel said. â€œI worked with him when he was a young coach in New England and I am proud of the way his career has developed. We had a very thorough process for this position and it was clear to me that Brian was the right choice. He was coveted by multiple teams and I am glad he will be joining our staff.â€? Daboll replaces Bill Muir,
who announced his retirement last week. Others known to have interviewed for the job were quarterbacks coach Jim Zorn and former Raiders offensive coordinator Al Saunders. Daboll also has connections to Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli after spending time in New England, where Daboll coached wide receivers and Crennel was defensive coordinator. Daboll later spent two seasons as the
New York Jetsâ€™ quarterbacks coach before taking over as offensive coordinator in Cleveland. The Browns were last in the NFL in total offense during his first season and 29th in Year 2, after which he departed for Miami. The Dolphins were 22nd in total offense this past season, though there was marked improvement over the second half of the season.

Could this be week for Woods?
Report: Haley to be Steelersâ€™ O-coordinator
By Tim Kawakami San Jose Mercury News
The most dominating man in golf (lately) is not playing this week, so maybe that nondescript also-ran named Tiger Woods has a chance, after all. Oh, him again. Sorry, folks, Kyle Stanley â€” emotional winner Sunday at the Phoenix Open, a dramatic second place at Torrey Pines the week before â€” is not entered in the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. But Woods, winner of zero PGA Tour events in many moons, is competing in the AT&T for the first time since 2002. What we know: He doesnâ€™t love the three-course rotation, the bumpy greens, the amateurclogged rounds or the celebrity-ga-ga crowds. What we also know: Woods likes to win, and has won here-at the 2000 AT&T and in his historic 2000 U.S. Open conquering at Pebble. And though I wonâ€™t be so presumptuous as to predict a Tiger victory, there are tangible signs that he is playing well enough to get into serious contention this weekend. Woods might even win, which would be his first official tour victory since he won the BMW Championship in September 2009. Really, any kind of deep run onto Sundayâ€™s leader board at Pebble Beach would be something important for Woods. It feels weird to say this, but he probably needs to relearn how to win against top pros these days, and where else better to do that than Pebble? Woods, of course, is not in love with hearing that kind of talk. â€œYeah, the tournament right before this I won,â€? Woods said after finishing third in a European Tour event in Abu Dhabi last month. â€œYeah, you guys tend to forget that.â€? But that â€œvictoryâ€? came in December in the Chevron World Challenge, an unofficial event that had only 18 players in the field and which raised money for Woodsâ€™ foundation. He does need to refigure out how to win on tour. And when better than now, with Woods, at 36, nearing the end of his prime years and the U.S. Open set for Olympic Club on June 14-17? Let us stipulate that Woods almost certainly will never regain the command and control he exerted in his prime. Woods absolutely has to hit it longer than he did last year, when he was 71st on tour in official driving distance, averaging 293.7 yards. That was 22.4 yards less than Woods averaged in 2005, when he was the second-longest driver, averaging 316.1 yards. Heâ€™s never going to be an accurate driver â€” 186th in accuracy last year, 191st in 2005; Woods needs the distance to move him as close to the green as possible. Woods just cannot be giving up 10 yards or more per drive to his competitors. Rory McIlroy, 22, averaged 307.2 yards per measured drive, according to PGA Tour stats. McIlroy isnâ€™t playing the AT&T. Woods is. He might not win, but the longer he hits it, the less of a long shot he should be. Woods will win again eventually. Why not Sunday?
PITTSBURGH â€” The Steelers will hire former Kansas City Chiefs coach Todd Haley to be their offensive coordinator, according to an ESPN report. The move, first reported by 610 AM in Kansas City, has not yet been announced. Haley will replace Bruce Arians, now with the Indianapolis Colts. The 45-year-old Haley, fired by Kansas City on Dec. 13, went 19-26 in two-plus seasons with the Chiefs, leading them to the 2010 AFC West title. He spent 10 seasons as an assistant before being hired by Kansas City. He was offensive coordinator for Arizona in 2007-08, helping lead the Cardinals to their only Super Bowl appearance. The Steelers went 12-4 this season but lost the AFC North title to Baltimore on a tiebreaker. The Chiefs were 5-8 when Haley was dismissed. His last game was a tough one. Kansas City lost, 37-10, to the New York Jets at the Meadowlands, Haley and it was their fifth loss in six games. Kansas City committed 11 penalties for 128 yards in the performance, including a 15-yarder on Haley for unsportsmanlike conduct that may have sealed his fate. â€œTiming in these situations is always difficult. There never seems to be a right time,â€? Chiefs chairman and CEO Clark Hunt said at the time. â€œWe just felt the inconsistent play the team has experienced throughout the season, including yesterdayâ€™s game, made today the right day to do it.â€? After three lopsided losses to start the season, Kansas City rattled off four straight wins and briefly pulled into a tie atop the AFC West. But that was followed by a home loss to previously winless Miami, the start of a disastrous six weeks in which the losses mounted. â€œWeâ€™ve had one of those years where weâ€™ve had injuries, and injuries to key players, but thatâ€™s typical in the National Football League,â€? Hunt said then. â€œAs a team, you have to find a way to overcome that, and we just werenâ€™t able to do that this year. Our play was up and down the entire season and at times it was up and down during a given game, and I think those contributed to our decision.â€? Without a bye, the Steelers had to play a road game at Denver to open the postseason. Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger threw for 289 yards and a touchdown, but the Steelers fell to the Broncos, 29-23, in overtime.
Contador stripped of Tour win GENEVA â€” Three days after U.S. prosecutors dropped their investigation of doping claims against Lance Armstrong, fellow Tour de France champion Alberto Contador was stripped of his 2010 title when sportsâ€™ highest court rejected the Spanish cyclistâ€™s story that contaminated meat caused him to fail a drug test. The 29-year-old Contador, who also won the Tour in 2007 and â€˜09, tested positive for clenbuterol during a Tour rest day in July 2010. Contadorâ€™s ban was backdated to Jan. 25, 2011 â€” making him eligible to return on Aug. 6. â€œUnlike certain other countries, notably outside Europe, Spain is not known to have a contamination problem with clenbuterol in meat,â€? the Court of Arbitration for Sport said in its ruling. â€œFurthermore, no other cases of athletes having tested positive to clenbuterol allegedly in connection with the consumption of Spanish meat are known.â€? Contador had been thought likely to challenge Armstrongâ€™s record of seven career Tour victories. Instead, he joins Floyd Landis as the only riders stripped of their Tour titles after testing positive for banned performance-enhancing drugs. Andy Schleck of Luxembourg is now in line to take Contadorâ€™s 2010 title. The CAS verdict in Lausanne, Switzerland, was delivered 566 days after Contador cycled triumphantly along the Champs dâ€™Elysees in Paris. The ruling came after Armstrongâ€™s own lengthy legal fight ended Friday, with U.S. federal authorities dropping an investigation into alleged doping involving his Tour teams. Cyclingâ€™s governing body, which had joined the World Anti-Doping Agency in forcing Contador into court, said it took no satisfaction from upholding its fight against drug cheats. â€œThis is a sad day for our sport,â€? International Cycling Union president Pat McQuaid said in a statement. â€œSome may think of it as a victory, but that is not at all the case. There are no winners when it comes to the issue of doping: every case, irrespective of its characteristics, is always a case too many.â€?

Nats sign Ankiel to minor deal WASHINGTON â€” The Nationals have agreed to a minor-league contract with outfielder Rick Ankiel. Washington announced the deal Monday. If added to the 40-man roster, Ankiel would have a $1.25 million, one-year contract and could make $1.5 million in performance bonuses. The performance bonuses are the same as his deal last year with the Nationals, plus an additional $250,000 for 400 plate appearances. The 32-year-old Ankiel batted .239 with nine home runs and 37 RBIs in 122 games last season with Washington. He gives the Nationals depth at center field. Ankiel has also played for St. Louis, Kansas City and Atlanta over nine major-league seasons.
Rockies get Guthrie from Oâ€™s DENVER â€” The Colorado Rockies acquired veteran right-hander Jeremy Guthrie from the Baltimore Orioles on Monday, a move that bolsters their young rotation. In exchange, the Rockies sent reliever Matt Lindstrom and right-hander Jason Hammel to the Orioles. Guthrie, the Oriolesâ€™ opening day starter three of the last four seasons, lost 17 games last season, the most in the American League, and finished with a 4.33 ERA. He agreed to a one-year, $8.2 million contract with the Rockies, avoiding an arbitration hearing that had been scheduled for Monday in St. Petersburg, Fla. Guthrie, who turns 33 in April, is eligible to become a free agent after the season. â€œThey got two great arms,â€? Rockies general manager Dan Oâ€™Dowd said. â€œBut we got a guy we feel fits in with our younger pitchers very well.â€?

Love suspended two games MINNEAPOLIS â€” Kevin Loveâ€™s frustration with physical play and officiating have been apparent early and often this season. Emotion got the best of him Saturday night against the Rockets, and now he and the Minnesota Timberwolves have to pay the price: Love, his teamâ€™s leading scorer and rebounder, was suspended for two games by the NBA for â€œdriving his foot into the upper body and face of the Rocketsâ€™ Luis Scola as Scola was lying on the floor.â€? The play happened in the third quarter of Saturdayâ€™s victory over the Rockets after the two tangled while going for a rebound.

KANSAS SOFTBALL COACH MEGAN SMITH — HANGING OUT IN FRONT OF A WALL of pictures of former players in the softball locker room — says the Jayhawks have significantly upgraded their pitching this season.

KU went 21-35 overall and 2-16 in conference in 2010, 31-22 overall and 2-16 in the Big 12 last season. The Jayhawks were 0-6 in onerun conference games last season. The Big 12 schedule gets even tougher for KU. Instead of playing nine conference teams twice,

Romero Osby was fouled with 2.5 seconds left and missed both free throws, and Steven Pledger missed a threepointer at the buzzer when the offensive rebound was tapped back to him. Pledger slumped to the ground and put his hands over his face after his potential tying shot clanged off the rim to end the game. He stayed on the floor until two Missouri players and teammate Barry Honore came over to lift him up. “It was perfect.

Marquette dumps DePaul No. 18 Marquette 89, DePaul 76 ROSEMONT, ILL. — Darius Johnson-Odom scored 23 points, and Jamil Wilson added 18 points and nine rebounds to lead Marquette on Monday. Trailing 41-29, JohnsonOdom scored nine points during an 11-2 run by the Golden Eagles (20-5, 9-3 Big East) to close the first half. He opened the second half by hitting a three that tied the game at 43, and Jae Crowder gave the Golden Eagles their first lead of the game with a free throw. Vander Blue hit a jumper to cap off a 16-3 run to open the second half and give Marquette a 56-46 lead. Marquette rebounded from a blowout loss to Notre Dame on Saturday that ended a seven-game winning streak. Cleveland Melvin scored 22 points and Jamee Crockett added 17 for DePaul (11-12, 2-9), which has lost 36 consecutive games against ranked opponents since beating No. 17 Villanova 84-76 on Jan. 3, 2008. Marquette has won six of the last seven in the series.
No. 24 Louisville 80, Connecticut 59 LOUISVILLE, KY. — Gorgui Dieng returned from a sprained right ankle to score 15 points, and freshman Chane Behanan added 12 rebounds as Louisville won its fifth straight. Chris Smith scored 16 points for the Cardinals (19-5, 7-4 Big East), while Kyle Kuric added 10 and Peyton Siva had nine assists. Dieng was questionable after Saturday’s injury in a win over Rutgers, but he clogged up the lane and kept Connecticut freshman Andre Drummond in check. Freshman Ryan Boatright led the Huskies (15-8, 5-6) with 18 points. Drummond went scoreless, missing all six shots, and Jeremy Lamb finished with seven points, well short of his average of 17.6. Connecticut coach Jim Calhoun missed his second game on an indefinite medical leave of absence after he was diagnosed with spinal stenosis. Dieng was a key contributor in the Cardinals’ decisive 21-4 run that gave them a 65-36 lead with 6:18 left.

Cavs’ Gibson still ailing CLEVELAND (AP) — Cavaliers guard Daniel Gibson practiced and believed he was ready to play. He’ll have to wait a little longer. Gibson did not travel with the team to Miami as originally planned after he complained about discomfort in his neck after practicing for the first time in 10 days. Gibson will miss his fifth straight game today due to what the team has described as a “soft tissue infection” that he was hospitalized for in Boston last week. He practiced Monday at the team’s facility in Independence, Ohio, and said he was looking forward to getting back on the floor with his teammates. But Gibson reported some “discomfort” and the team said in a release Monday night that Gibson did not make the trip to Florida to face the Heat “as a precaution.” Gibson had been upbeat after practice. He was hospitalized in Boston for two days last week to undergo tests after his neck swelled and he had trouble chewing. Gibson still isn’t sure what exactly is wrong with him.
Haslem ‘glue guy’ for Miami By Robbie Levin McClatchy Newspapers
MIAMI — With nine seconds remaining in the Heat’s game against the Bulls last week, Udonis Haslem was all that stood between Derrick Rose and the potential game-tying basket. Rose used a pick to squeeze by LeBron James at the top of the key and then blew past Chris Bosh to get into the lane, where he met Haslem. Positioned at the edge of the restricted area, Haslem stepped up to meet Rose a few feet inside the free-throw line. Rose lowered his head and knocked Haslem to the ground, but
no charge was called. Still, the collision threw Rose off balance, and after pivoting his right foot three times, Rose put up a short floater. The shot clanked off the front of the rim, giving the Heat its biggest win of the season. The play epitomizes Haslem’s value — hard to measure but impossible to ignore. “You’ve got to have a glue guy; you’ve got to have a tough guy on every team, a warrior,” James said. “(Haslem) is that. Whatever you need from him, he’s going to do it. He’ll take a charge or get a rebound or make a key shot. Whatever the case
may be, he’s there for it, and he can do it.” Haslem is coming off the shortest season of his career, a year in which he missed five months after tearing a ligament in his left foot. This year the effects of Haslem’s injury and his recovery are noticeable in his reduced scoring, as he is shooting less than he ever has and is averaging a career-low 40.5 percent from the field. “A guy like (Haslem), no matter if he’s 0-for12, you still want him on the floor,” Dwyane Wade said. “You know he’s going to bring more to the game than just one dimension.”

76ers 95, Lakers 90 PHILADELPHIA — Lou Williams nailed the goahead three-pointer, scored 14 of his 24 points in the fourth quarter and spoiled Kobe Bryant’s record-setting night while leading Philadelphia to a victory over the Lakers on Monday night. With “Beat L.A.!” echoing through a second straight sellout crowd, Williams hit the tying jumper, then followed with the 3 for a 91-88 lead. He hit another floater to make it 93-88, part of a fantastic fourth that saw him hold off Bryant and help the Sixers improve to 13-3 at home. Bryant scored 24 of his 28 points in the first half. He passed former teammate Shaquille O’Neal and moved into fifth place on the NBA’s career scoring list. Bryant got 24 points in a hurry to pass O’Neal, but stumbled down the stretch and missed nine of his 10 shots in the fourth. Andrew Bynum had 20 points and 20 rebounds for the Lakers. Pau Gasol had 16 points and 11 rebounds. L.A.

Knicks 99, Jazz 88 NEW YORK — Jeremy Lin scored a career-high 28 points in his first career start, Steve Novak added a season-best 19, and the Knicks overcame the absence of Amare Stoudemire and early loss of Carmelo Anthony to beat Utah. Stoudemire left the team to join his family in Florida after older brother Hazell was killed there earlier Monday in a car crash, then Anthony left after just six minutes with a strained right groin. Despite missing two All-Stars and using a lineup of second-teamers, the Knicks won their second straight thanks to another remarkable performance from Lin, the former Harvard point guard.

GIANTS RUNNING BACK AHMAD BRADSHAW, BOTTOM RIGHT, SCORES a touchdown against New England linebacker Brandon Spikes. The TD proved decisive in the Giants’ 21-17 victory in the Super Bowl on Sunday in Indianapolis.
Belichick: Giving up TD gave Pats best chance INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Bill Belichick gave clear instructions to his defensive unit: Let the runner score. Playing the odds and inviting critics, the calculating coach of the New England Patriots told his players to get out of the way, open a wide path for Ahmad Bradshaw and give Tom Brady a chance to win the Super Bowl in the final 57 seconds. Unusual? Certainly. Crazy? Not at all. The strategy failed and the New York Giants won 21-17 on Sunday night. But Belichick was certain it gave the Patriots their best opportunity. They led 17-15 with 1:04 left but had just one timeout as New York faced a second down only 6 yards from the goal line. If the Patriots tackled Bradshaw, the clock would keep running if they didn’t use the timeout. If they did use it, the Giants could let the clock run after the next play, leaving precious few seconds with Lawrence Tynes setting up for a chip-shot field goal. A field goal, Belichick said Monday, that had a “well over 90 percent success rate” from that distance. And that strategy was used, although it also failed, in the 1998 Super Bowl by Green Bay Packers coach Mike Holmgren against the Denver Broncos. Still, it went against the competitive nature of defensive players, whose job it is to keep opponents out of the end zone, and runners, whose goal it is to get there. “It killed me,” said linebacker Brandon Spikes, a hard-hitting linebacker who simply stepped aside. “When the call came in to let them score, I was kind of like, ‘What? I’m here to do my job and it’s my job to play defense and let them score?’ It was tough. It definitely was tough.” Bradshaw also had to fight off his instincts. As he approached the goal line, he tried to stop, like someone trying to avoid losing his balance. But his momentum carried him across the goal line, falling backward, even as game MVP Eli Manning yelled at him to go down. “I tried,” Bradshaw said,
Belichick “but I couldn’t do it.” So it was 21-17 and Brady had those 57 seconds to score a touchdown. He had done it many times before. Starting at his 20, he threw two incompletions and then was sacked. But on fourth down, he connected with Deion Branch for 19 yards and a first down at the 33. Then he hooked up with Aaron Hernandez for 11 yards to the 44 before spiking the ball. The Giants then drew a 5-yard penalty, moving the ball to the Patriots 49. Still a chance, however slim. With nine seconds left, Brady threw an incompletion to Branch. With five seconds left, there was just one option — a desperation pass into a crowd in the end zone. It got there but, with tight ends Hernandez and Rob Gronkowski nearby, it dropped to the ground and the Patriots championship chances — and the clock — fell to zero. Belichick’s strategy, sound though it might have been, didn’t work out. “He made a good decision,” Brady said. “We left ourselves with a little bit of time.” Early this season, the Patriots lost to the Buffalo Bills 34-31 in the third game when they couldn’t get the ball back. The Bills appeared to score with 1:43 left on a 39-yard pass play from Ryan Fitzpatrick to Fred Jackson. But the ruling that Jackson crossed the goal line was reversed after replay and Buffalo got the ball at the 1. Fitzpat-
rick kept kneeling on every play until Rian Lindell kicked a winning 28-yard field goal as time expired. Belichick’s clear-theway order was similar to Holmgren’s decision in the 1998 Super Bowl. The score was tied at 24 when he let Terrell Davis score on a 1-yard run with 1:45 left rather than allow the Broncos to run down the clock for a short field goal attempt. Brett Favre then led the Packers from their 30 to the Broncos 31. But after three straight incompletions, Denver regained possession with 28 seconds to go and John Elway kneeled down to end the game. More recently, the New York Jets had no timeouts and tried to let Jacksonville’s Maurice JonesDrew score on Nov. 15, 2009. But he stopped at the 1 after a 9-yard gain with about 1 1-2 minutes left. “I was looking for someone to tackle me,” he said. David Garrard took a knee on the next two plays and Josh Scobee kicked a 21-yard field goal that gave the Jaguars a 24-22 victory. Jones-Drew’s play reminded Garrard of when Philadelphia’s Brian Westbrook also took a knee at the 1 to seal a late-season win over Dallas in 2007. But the Super Bowl decision by Belichick is likely to linger the longest as sports fans debate its wisdom over the years. At least one person with a rooting interest, Giants running back Brandon Jacobs, knew it wouldn’t work. “I respect Tom Brady and the New England Patriots,” he said. “He does a great job with the guys he has. But if that was Drew Brees or Aaron Rodgers on the other side, with those big play outfits, 57 seconds would have been plenty enough time for those guys.” The Patriots’ passes, he said, are much shorter. “They needed a helluva lot more than 57 seconds to be able to win the football game,” Jacobs said. “So I wasn’t worried at all.” But what choice did they have? “It was better than not having a chance at all,” Brady said.
Super Bowl sets viewership record NEW YORK (AP) — For the third consecutive year, the Super Bowl set a record as the mostwatched television show in U.S. history. The Nielsen Co. said Monday that an estimated 111.3 million people watched the New York Giants beat the New England Patriots on Sunday night. That narrowly beat the 111 million who watched Green Bay’s win over Pittsburgh last year.
NBC was blessed by a competitive game between two teams that played in one of the Super Bowl’s most memorable contests four years ago, with one of them representing the largest media market in the country. The game wasn’t over until Tom Brady’s lastsecond heave into the end zone dropped onto the turf. That play itself had the biggest audience of
any play in the game, according to the digital video recorder maker Tivo. Nielsen said 117.7 million people were watching during the last half hour of the game. The last two Super Bowls, along with the 2010 game between New Orleans and Indianapolis and the finale of “M-AS-H” in 1983, are the only programs to exceed 100 million viewers in U.S. television history.

Bipolar son a threat to wedding plans Annie’s Mailbox

calls, Lynn breaks out in a nervous rash. Mike stayed here for two weeks last year and hacked my computer, watched porn all night and stole from us. Lynn and I are scared to death that he will run out of housing options and she will have to take him in. My heart says to marry Lynn, but my head doesn’t want to take on the issues with Mike. What do I do? — Confused Dear Confused: First, please tell Lynn that you want to marry her. It will make her happy and more amenable to working on the problems with her son. Then get premarital counseling, and also contact the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance (dbsalliance. org) for suggestions on how to deal with Mike. Dear Annie: Several times recently we have
‘River’ may pull you in Tonight brings us the premiere of “The River” (8 p.m., ABC). It’s a stab at “Lost” by way of “Paranormal Activity” and “The Blair Witch Project.” ‘‘The River” kicks off with vintage clips of Dr. Emmet Cole (Bruce Greenwood), the host of the popular TV show “The Undiscovered Country.” For decades, he and his family scoured the globe for obscure places and adventures. We see news footage about his disappearance in a remote spot on the Amazon. We’re told his estranged wife (Leslie Hope) has gone to search for him with the help of a reality TV crew. Then we’re told that “the following” consists of found footage, the lingering remnants of their efforts. That hook not only harks back to “Blair Witch,” but allows “The River” to unfold in disjointed fits and starts, as one ragged reel gives way to the next. It’s a neat trick, playing on the idea that this is all unedited, when we all know that editors are the real, if unsung, stars of TV and — more to the point — reality TV production. ‘‘The River” often looks like those dumb “Ghost Hunters” shows on Syfy and elsewhere. Except on “The River,” we don’t watch for hours on end only to see somebody say, “Did you hear that?” No, the shocks come frequently. There are intimations of human possession, a creepy lair filled with hanging dolls, the disappearance of a major character, a grave robbery and a symphony of eerie cries and whispers. And that’s just during the two-hour pilot! In fact “The River” is so rich with sudden shocks that one has to wonder how long this can continue. It has all the makings of a very scary movie. But an episodic story that lasts several seasons? We’ll just have to see.

been invited to someone’s house and the TV has been blaring, most often with some awful trashy soap opera or reality show spewing ugly, vile nonsense. I find the noise deafening, especially at my mother-in-law’s. Often I can’t hear the conversation over the din. And the fact that the TV is left on while others are visiting is rude and insulting. Can I ask that it be turned off? I don’t want to start a fight, but I find this behavior horrible. Is the protocol different if you are related? — Saskatoon Dear Saskatoon: We

Some people cannot help but be jealous. Tonight: Stay close to home. Gemini (May 21-June 20) You are juggling more than your fair share of work and other issues. You could be very tired and drawn from dealing with a child or loved one. Tonight: Fun and games. Cancer (June 21-July 22) You could be taken aback by what another person shares. It could cause a problem, as you know too much and it might affect your attitude. Stay on top of a changeable situation. Tonight: Treat time. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) If you can accept some dissent around you, you should fare well, because ultimately your insights will point to the correct direction.

agree that it is rude to keep the TV on when you have visitors, and it is perfectly OK to say nicely, “Would you mind if we turn that off? I’d much prefer concentrating on our conversation.” Relatives, however, often drop by whenever they feel like it. If you are intruding, rather than invited, you shouldn’t be surprised when Mom prefers to watch her favorite program.

Dear Annie: After 40 years of marriage, my wife came home from work one day and said she was leaving. I decided then that I would never marry again. Four years ago, I met “Lynn.” Now, of course, I am madly in love with her. She never ceases to amaze me with her big heart and infectious smile. She accepts that I don’t want to marry, but I have noticed that when someone gets engaged, her mood changes dramatically. She becomes depressed and cries, and I can see the hurt in her face. I’ve decided I do want to marry Lynn, but the problem is her 20-year-old son, “Mike.” He is bipolar and uses that as an excuse to sleep all day and play video games all night. He once said he can’t get the mail because he is bipolar. He lives with multiple friends, each of whom eventually kicks him out because he won’t help out and he steals from them. When Mike lived with Lynn, he stole from her, screamed at her, snuck out at night and got into legal trouble. They went to counseling together, and Lynn was on serious depression medicines until Mike moved out. When Mike
