In Egypt: ‘What the kids did was break the barrier’

City approves $1.2M for library design By Chad Lawhorn clawhorn@ljworld.com

The spending for an expanded public library has begun at Lawrence City Hall, and commissioners Tuesday said they’re open to at least considering spending a little bit more than originally planned. Commissioners at their weekly meeting unanimously approved a $1.2 million contract to design a $19 million expansion and parking garage project for the library at Seventh and Vermont streets. “This is a great night,” said City Commissioner Aron Cromwell. “This is going to be a fantastic project that will proCITY duce a fantastic building.” COMMISSION It also may produce a few extra bells and whistles not originally planned for when the project was approved by voters in November. Commissioners agreed to have Lawrence-based Gould Evans Architects include several options into their design work. They include: Please see CITY, page 2A Mike Yoder/Journal-World Photo

MOHAMED EL-HODIRI, PROFESSOR OF ECONOMICS AT KU, left Egypt 52 years ago, but he’s still in touch with people there and visits regularly. His last trip back was in July, and he said young people were the instigators of the protests. “This is a young people movement. It’s a Facebook movement,” he said. “People thought in general that they don’t care. They got serious for some reason.”

Budget cuts Egyptians in Lawrence eager advance; critics for change, but also apprehensive say education

By Brenna Hawley

bhawley@ljworld.com

A few months ago, Aliaa El Kalyoubi was living in Cairo. She was preparing to leave for college in a faraway place called Kansas, hoping to go into a field she loves: graphic design. Now, she’s far from her home, where civil unrest has been at center stage for two weeks. Egyptians have taken to the streets to protest the reign of President Hosni Mubarak, which has lasted almost 30 years. During his presidency, the gap between the rich and poor has expanded immensely, and many of the 80 million Egyptians live below the poverty line. El Kalyoubi, a freshman at Kansas University who is one of nine students from Egypt, knew people were unhappy, but she was surprised at the

speed of the uprising. If she were back in Egypt, she doesn’t know whether she would take part in the protests because she’s certain her mother would try to keep her inside. But she said most of the people in the streets are young and she was proud of them for taking a stand. “We’re the part of the population that’s most affected by what’s happening; we’re the ones who are actually doing something about it,” she said. Mohamed El-Hodiri, professor of economics at KU, may have left Egypt 52 years ago, but he’s still in touch with people there and visits regularly. His last trip back was in July. “This is a young people movement. It’s a Facebook movement,” he said. “People thought in general that they don’t care. They got serious for some reason.”

El-Hodiri, who is blogging and tweeting about the protests, said people older than 40 are scared of Mubarak’s regime, but more than half the population of Egypt is young people. “What the kids did was break the barrier,” he said. Heba Hamdy Mabrouk Mostafa, a graduate student in microbiology, and her husband, Maged Zein El-Din, a graduate student in molecular biology, haven’t been home to Egypt for more than a year. Both have family and friends who have been affected by the protests. “I don’t think anyone here knows about how bad the situation is in Egypt,” Mostafa said. “No one knew anything about Egypt. People here live in a very good way, and I don’t think they can understand or know how bad we live.”

Mostafa’s best friend’s brother is one of the protesters in Cairo’s Tahrir Square, a main gathering place for those still calling for Mubarak’s departure. “She is worried, but she is proud,” she said of her best friend. El-Din said the couple have been watching as much news about the protests as they can during the last two weeks. He said he and most of his friends want change in Egypt. “You really want this stuff to happen, but you are at the same time and worried about your people, about your country. You don’t want a lot of destruction,” he said. — Reporter Brenna Hawley can be reached at 832-7217.

TOPEKA — House Republicans pushed through budget cuts Tuesday that they defended as responsible, but that Democrats said would hurt public schools and jeopardize life-saving research at Kansas University and other higher education institutions. The measure would cut base O’Neal state aid to schools and enact a 7.5 percent pay cut to high-wage state employees, including about 1,500 at higher education institutions. House Speaker Mike O’Neal, R-Hutchinson, called the bill “a responsible budget that provides a positive ending balance for this fiscal year.” It Please see STATE, page 2A

Dancing flash mob at KU basketball game provides popular floor show By Andy Hyland ahyland@ljworld.com

Before she spotted the sign-up sheet, Lindsey McAlonan didn’t even know what a flash mob was. If they didn’t before, the 16,300 fans who packed into Allen Fieldhouse for the Kansas-Missouri basketball game Monday have a much better idea of what it is, too. After the under-8-minute media timeout in the first half, about 150 students — with no warning — began standing up and waving their arms in the

air and dancing a synchronized, scripted routine. They all wore the same red shirt promoting Kansas University’s Buddy System, a student health and safety campaign. “People were just like, ‘What is going on?’” McAlonan said. “Once they figured it out, everybody just started cheering us on.” McAlonan, a KU freshman from Victoria, saw the sign-in sheet for people camping in Allen Fieldhouse for basketball seats. She zipped off to YouTube, pulled up some

All told, the students practiced for about two and a half hours, McAlonan said. Frank DeSalvo, associate vice provost for student success, helps oversee the Jayhawk Buddy System. He said the idea came from the campaign’s student advisory board. The buddy system encourages students to pair up when going out in the hopes that their peers will keep them safe and discourage them from participating in bad behaviors, like excessive drinking. The best part about the flash mob was the makeup of

Cathy Jarzemkoski, KU’s spirit squad coordinator, choreographed the dance routine. It was designed to be simple and visual. She was impressed with how quickly everyone seemed to pick it up. “When we started on Monday, everyone picked it up in like an hour,” she said. “We came back on Thursday and had another rehearsal and they knew it.”

the group, DeSalvo said. Though organized by student leaders and athletics officials, most of the students who participated weren’t part of either group. “We had just general students who got to do something really cool” and get on national TV, he said. McAlonan thought it was cool, too. She hopes flash mobs become a tradition at KU. “I would definitely do it again,” she said. — Higher education reporter Andy Hyland can be reached at 832-6388.

State budget cuts advance CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1A

was approved 81-40 with only Republicans in support. Democrats and a handful of Republicans opposed it. House Democratic Leader Paul Davis of Lawrence said the education cuts would lead to larger classes and teacher layoffs. “Our children will suffer so that big businesses can be exempt from paying taxes,” Davis said. And he said the pay cuts will hurt research at higher education schools and could jeopardize National Cancer Institute designation at the Kansas University Medical Center and bringing the National Bio and Agro-Defense Facility to Manhattan. “The extreme right wing has sent a clear message to leading researchers at our universities that their work is not valued,” Davis said. The legislation essentially embraced cuts proposed by Gov. Sam Brownback, a Republican, to the current fiscal year, and will result in a reduction in base state aid to schools from $4,012 per student to $3,937 per student. Democrats said the bill shorted special education below required federal levels, and would come back to haunt the state by resulting in special education cuts from the federal government that could total up to $25 million per year. But attempts to add $16.7 million in special education funding were rejected twice using the House’s new “paygo” rule that limits spending increases during floor debate of an appropriations bill. O’Neal said they “pay-go” provision worked as intended, providing budgetary “responsibility and discipline.” Conservative Republicans added a provision in committee to cut by 7.5 percent the pay of legislators, state officers, judges and regents employees making more than $100,000 per year. Several legislators tried to remove the 7.5 percent pay cut to high-wage state employees at regents institu-

If you cut these folks 7.5 percent, we are sending the message you aren’t important and you should look for other employment.” — State Rep. Don Hineman, R-Dighton, referring to scientific researchers tions, saying the proposal would chase away top-flight researchers and doctors at KU and other schools. State Rep. Don Hineman, R-Dighton, said researchers working on treatments for cancer and other diseases are in high demand and will be lured by other states. “If you cut these folks 7.5 percent, we are sending the message you aren’t important and you should look for other employment. They (the researchers) are a mobile commodity, and they will go,” he said. But state Rep. Pete DeGraaf, R-Mulvane, said those receiving a pay cut should realize the state faces a huge revenue deficit. “Anyone making over a $100,000 needs to join us and the governor and experience some pain.” Legislators said Brownback has voluntarily taken a 10 percent pay cut. Hineman’s amendment to remove the high-wage earners at regents institutions from the pay cut failed, 45-71. The Senate is currently working on its own budget plan. After finishing work on the current fiscal year budget, the Legislature will work on a budget for the fiscal year that starts July 1. Current estimates have pegged the revenue shortfall for that year at $492 million. During debate, abortion opponents also pushed through an amendment that would prevent the state from passing through federal family planning service grants to Planned Parenthood. — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

City approves library design contract CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1A ● Adding another level of parking to the proposed 250space parking garage that would be just south of the library. Another level would add 50 to 70 spaces but could cost another $1 million. Commissioners were told that any money for additional parking would not come from the $18 million bond issue approved by voters. Instead, the money would have to come from other city sources. Under the contract, the garage will be designed so the additional level can be removed from the construction plans if commissioners deem it too expensive. ● Designing the parking garage in a way that would allow it to also function as a public transit hub. Currently, the city’s main transfer point for the transit system is at Ninth and New Hampshire streets. The transfer station today is essentially just an outdoor bus stop. A facility in the parking garage would include restrooms and indoor waiting area. City Manager David Corliss said he envisions the transfer station would be located on the Kentucky Street side of the parking garage rather than the Vermont Street side. ● Consider how a public plaza area in front of the new library could be utilized to host the Downtown Lawrence Farmers’ Market. The market currently operates in the 800 block of New Hampshire and the 1000 block of Vermont streets. But leaders of the market previously have expressed interest in having more space for vendors, access to restroom facilities and perhaps other amenities, such as a portable kitchen. The transit hub and any improvements for the Farmers’ Market would have to be funded with money not included in the $18 million bond issue, Corliss said. But Corliss recommended that the commission at least get pricing options for all three additions. “I don’t want to have to rebuild something after we’ve already built it,” Corliss said. Commissioners agreed to at least let design work go forward, but stopped short of saying they could ultimately support construction of the additional items. “I do have some concern because we asked the public to chime in and support this project in November,” Mayor Mike Amyx said. “Making changes to it at this time does concern me some.” City leaders hope to accept construction bids for all the library projects in the fall. Construction then would take about 20 months. It is expected to create major disruptions to parking in the area, but the library intends to stay open during the project. — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362.

Man charged with raping one 5-year-old, fondling another Douglas County prosecutors have filed seven charges against a rural Edgerton man, including two counts of child rape. Prosecutors allege the 45year-old man who lives in southeastern Douglas County committed the acts at his home against two 5-year-olds between June and November. Prosecutors allege he raped a 5-year-old child in two of the counts.

He’s also accused of fondling and exposing himself to the same child in two separate charges. In three other counts, prosecutors allege the suspect twice fondled another 5-year-old and also exposed himself to that child. The allegations were initially reported to Douglas County Sheriff’s investigators on Nov. 13, and after prosecutors reviewed information in the

case a warrant was issued. The suspect was arrested at his home Saturday morning. A judge Monday set his bond at $150,000 cash or surety, and the suspect has a hearing scheduled for 9:30 a.m. Feb. 22 in front of District Judge Peggy Kittel. The Journal-World generally does not identify sex crime suspects unless they are convicted.

House rejects Patriot Act extensions The House on Tuesday failed to extend the life of three surveillance tools that are key to the nation’s post-Sept. 11 anti-terror law, a slipup for the new Republican leadership that miscalculated the level of opposition. The House voted 277-148 to keep the three provisions of the USA Patriot Act on the books until Dec. 8. But Republicans brought up the bill under a special expedited procedure requiring a two-thirds majority, and the vote was seven short of reaching that level. The Republicans, who took over the House last month, lost 26 of their own members, adding to the 122 Democrats who voted against it. Supporters say the three measures are vital to preventing another terrorist attack, but critics say they infringe on civil liberties. They appealed to the antipathy that newer and more conservative Republicans hold for big government invasions of individual privacy. 1 | WASHINGTON, D.C.

First lady: Obama no longer a smoker President Barack Obama has finally done what millions of fellow Americans are still struggling to achieve — he’s given up smoking. “Yes, he has,� his wife, Michelle, said Tuesday at the White House when asked whether he had conquered a nicotine habit that began as a teenager. “It’s been almost a year,� she said, offering no details on exactly when or how he quit. One in five adults, about 46 million people, still smoke, and brain research shows that nicotine is powerfully addictive. Three out of four smokers who try to kick the habit relapse within six months, and repeated attempts often are required to quit long term, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse. 2 | ISLAMABAD

U.S. pressures over detained American The United States may scrap upcoming talks with Pakistan about the war in Afghanistan to further pressure Islamabad to free an American who shot dead two Pakistanis, U.S. officials said. Washington insists the detained American has diplomatic immunity and killed the Pakistanis in selfdefense as they tried to rob him at gunpoint. It says the man’s detention is illegal under international agreements covering diplomatic ties. Pakistani leaders, facing a groundswell of popular anger triggered by the incident, have avoided definitive statements on the status of the American, whom they have named as Raymond Davis. Davis’s next court appearance is set for Feb. 11. Two senior U.S. officials told The Associated Press on Monday that talks involving Afghanistan, Pakistan and the U.S. set for Feb. 24 in Washington are now in doubt because of the spat. 3 | MEXICO

3 teens killed, 2 of them American Three teenage boys were shot to death in the Mexican border city of Ciudad Juarez, at least two of them U.S. citizens and high school students in Texas, authorities said Monday. The boys were killed at 4:22 p.m. Saturday while looking at cars in a dealership in the city across the border from El Paso, Texas, Chihuahua prosecutors’ spokesman Arturo Sandoval said. One was found inside a white Jeep Cherokee and the other two in the courtyard. There were no leads on suspects or a motive, Sandoval said. Two managers were also in the dealership during the attack. One refused to give a statement, while the statement from the other manager was not released because of the pending investigation, Sandoval added. At least 60 bullet casings were found.

For years, patrons have posted decorated dollar bills to the walls of Jefferson’s Restaurant. Those bills soon could go toward paying off the restaurant’s back taxes. On Tuesday morning, the Kansas Department of Revenue and Alcohol Beverage Control shut down the downtown restaurant for failing to pay $46,848 in taxes. The state agency seized all bank accounts, on-site cash, business inventory and personal property belonging to the restaurant’s owner, Jason Franklin, and the parent company, FatLab Inc. If the back taxes aren’t paid, the restaurant’s assets will be sold at auction to pay the taxes owed to the state. If it gets to that point, the state will take the dollar bills off the wall and apply them to the owner’s debt, department of revenue spokeswoman Jeannine Koranda said. The owner hopes to work things out first. On Tuesday afternoon, Franklin said the closure involved a misunderstanding

Police Chief Terri Wilfong says the 25-year-old woman from Easley is a married mother of a 4-yearold. Authorities say Jessica Blackham was arrested on Tuesday night after she came to the Greenville police station accompanied by family members. She is charged with two counts of felony child abuse and one count of unlawful neglect toward a child. If convicted on all charges, she could face up to 50 years in prison.

Bank consents to ON THE regulatory order STREET

Tonganoxie-based First State Bank and Trust is working to boost its capital relative to liabilities, part of a plan to comply with a consent order reached with federal and state regulators. First State Bank & Trust, which has two branches in Lawrence, agreed in November to an order that was approved Dec. 3 by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation and the Kansas state banking commissioner. The FDIC released the order at the end of January. The bank consented, “without admitting or denying any charges of unsafe or unsound banking practices or violations of law and/or regulation,” to making several changes. Among them: boosting the bank’s “leverage capital ratio” to 8 percent, up from 6.05 percent at the end of 2010; and “total risk-based capital ratio” to 12 percent, up from 11.25 percent at the end of 2010. The bank is selling a branch in Clearwater, just west of Wichita, to Emprise Bank in a deal expected to close in March.

“After that transaction, we’ll be very close to the 8 (percent) and 12 (percent), and certainly should be there by midyear,” said Jilinda White, executive vice president. White noted that the bank’s capital levels — akin to a savings account for the bank itself — at the end of last year would be considered within the range of what the FDIC calls a “well capitalized” bank. First State is working to make required changes and follow approved plans for seeing that the bank continues to be strong going forward. “What they’re asking us is not something that we’re not already working on,” White said. The bank had close to $300 million in assets at the end of 2010 and intends to have about $250 million once the Clearwater branch’s sale closes, she said. The bank plans to go forward with its seven locations. “We’re very committed to our footprint in this area,” White said. “The sale signals a recommitment to this area.” — Schools reporter Mark Fagan can be reached at 832-7188.

Fire displaces trailer residents By Joe Preiner jpreiner@ljworld.com

ONLINE: See a photo gallery and video at LJWorld.com

No one was injured Tuesday afternoon when a fire engulfed a home in the 1900 block of West 31st Street. The f ire was called in about 5 p.m. and multiple Lawrence-Douglas County Fire Medical crews worked to contain the flames. Heavy

smoke was billowing from Gaslight Village about 5:15 p.m., leading the Lawrence Police Department to close down a portion of 31st Street. Resident Jason Dye said he had been working to fix a leaking pipe when the fire started. Dye said he believed the fire was caused by an electrical spark that ignited insulation inside the home. He said he and the other five people living in the home were

able to make it out safely. The Douglas County Chapter of the American Red Cross was on the scene to assist the displaced residents. Witnesses described the trailer as badly damaged from the fire. No official cause or damage estimates were immediately available. — Reporter Joe Preiner can be reached at 832-6314.

BRIEFLY Two defendants to enter pleas in robbery

BANKRUPTCY

Three Lawrence suspects accused of participating in a September robbery at a south Lawrence apartment indicated they likely will enter pleas instead of facing a trial, attorneys for the men said Tuesday. Defendants Joshua Self, 18, and Douglas Bittinger, 19, waived their rights to a preliminary hearing Tuesday afternoon. Each of their attorneys said their clients would likely enter pleas in the case before their scheduled trials. Another defendant, Christopher Self, 20, has a plea hearing scheduled next month. Prosecutors accuse the three men of participating in a scheme to use a gun to rob two 20-year-old Lawrence men on Sept. 6 at an apartment at The Exchange, 3100 Ousdahl Road. One victim was knocked unconscious and suffered a head wound.

versity, the chamber, Downtown Lawrence and others. It also recommends that the city consider funding a new position — perhaps within the chamber — that would be dedicated to helping local retailers expand and prosper. But the report specifically says a new position shouldn’t try to recruit retailers from outside the community since that could create questions about whether local government is spending money to attract competitors to local businesses.

In other business at Tuesday’s meeting, commissioners: ● Directed staff members to hold a public meeting with residents of the Miller/Wells Acres neighborhood about annexing that rural neighborhood into the city limits. The meeting likely will be in March, and would be the first of many steps needed to move forward on annexation. ● Agreed to rezone 51 acres of property at the southwest corner of N 1800 Road and E 1000 Road to general industrial. Commissioners previously had given preliminary

approval to the rezoning. Commissioners approved it on a 4-1 vote, with Commissioner Aron Cromwell opposed. He had wanted it to be rezoned to a lesser industrial category after several neighbors previously expressed concerns. ● Approved a $394,170 contract with Bartlett & West Engineers to design the reconstruction of Iowa Street from Harvard Road to the Irving Hill Overpass. — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362.

House considers in-state tuition repeal CONTINUED FROM PAGE 3A

Approximately 430 students are benefiting from the law. Both women said they could not have attended college if they were forced to pay the higher out-of-state tuition rates. But critics of the law have tried for years to repeal it. They say the law encourages illegal immigration, adds to the burden of taxpayers and is unfair to foreign students

who are legally here to attend school. Secretary of State Kris Kobach told the House Federal and State Affairs Committee that, “The state of Kansas is giving an incentive to remain unlawfully present in the United States.” Kobach, a Republican, said he was testifying not as secretary of state but as an attorney who is an expert on this issue. Kathy Brown, an attorney from Kansas City, Mo., said,

“I’m appalled at the endless invasion of illegal aliens into our country. We have enough entitlements that they are already able to claim, and I certainly don’t want them to be able to continue to receive in-state tuition in violation of federal law.” The hearing on House Bill 2006 was scheduled to continue on Wednesday. — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

Depot decision Taking ownership of the local Amtrak depot without a source of funds to renovate it is too great a risk for Lawrence.

L

awrence Amtrak passengers deserve better than what they are getting today: a 1950s-era depot at Seventh and New Jersey streets that comes with a leaky roof, outdated bathrooms and sparse accommodations. It is a poor welcome sign to our community. If deciding that Amtrak passengers and Lawrence’s image deserved better was the only decision facing the Lawrence City Commission, this issue would be easy. In the coming weeks and months, Lawrence city commissioners likely will be lobbied by well-intentioned citizens to take over ownership of the depot and begin a restoration project. The project involves a significant leap of faith on the community’s part. It is too large a leap to take in these economic times. The first phase of renovations is estimated to cost $600,000. The city has been seeking grant money for the project — without much success. The Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway is open to transferring ownership of the depot to the city. This is not surprising since the railroad has shown little interest in maintaining the building. But the city, rightly so, has been reluctant to take over ownership without knowing how it would pay for the initial $600,000 in repairs. Simply taking over ownership and waiting until money can be raised is not a feasible option since many of the repairs are required to bring the building into compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. The railroad may be able to get away with not meeting ADA standards. The city of Lawrence will not. Several community members now are set to argue that the reason the city has not received grant money for this project is because the city doesn’t own the building. That probably is a significant factor. These community members say if the city were to take over ownership, it would get the needed grant money for the restoration. That may be true, but it’s certainly not guaranteed. The city should not make a $600,000 gamble in today’s financial environment. A better course would be for community members to start their own private fundraising campaign, with the hope that the depot still will be available for ownership transfer when their fundraising is complete. That seems like a more reasonable risk to take. Or, perhaps, the city ought to shift its approach to the railroad. It might be time to point to several of the city’s property maintenance codes that apply to buildings that are open to the public. A letter from the mayor to the federal officials that oversee ADA compliance issues also might be warranted. None of these options likely will appeal to the depot’s fans. Instead, they will continue to push for the city to take a large leap of faith. We applaud those citizens for their commitment, but commissioners’ responsibility to Lawrence taxpayers should make them think twice before gambling on future funding for this project.

Egypt needs leadership but it isn’t lost There’s the tendency in some quarters to sow panic about what will happen in Egypt if Hosni Mubarak steps down. Last week Glenn Beck stood in front of a chart that portrayed a broad green swath of radical Islamist states extending from Egypt across the entire Middle East to India. (Never mind that India is overwhelmingly Hindu.) I’m getting e-mail from GOPUSA denouncing “Barrack Carter” as if President Obama had “lost” Egypt the way Jimmy Carter “lost” Iran. To which I say, “Get a grip!” Egypt is not lost, nor is it Iran. Let’s have a reality check. First the Iran analogies. Iran is a predominantly Shiite Muslim state, where Shiite clerics always played an activist role. The charismatic Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini returned from Paris in 1979 and rallied millions of Iranians, which enabled the clerics to hijack the revolution. Egypt, in contrast, is a Sunni Muslim country where most clerics traditionally support the state. Yes, the Sunni Muslim Brotherhood is the best organized opposition force (although banned as a political party, its members have run in parliamentary elections). The Brotherhood forsook violence years ago under state pressure, but it does have a worrisome past; it also supports Hamas and opposes the peace treaty with Israel. But it is riven with internal divisions, and has no charismatic leader. Experts say its appeal does not extend beyond 20 percent to 30 percent of the public. In the past, the Mubarak regime crushed non-Islamist parties so it could use the Brotherhood as a bogeyman and an excuse for strongman rule. If

other parties are allowed to flourish in a more open system, the Islamists would remain a minority force. Moreover, Egypt’s army — which will remain the bulwark of the state — won’t permit the Brotherhood’s role to expand. And for anyone who has been glued to the TV coverage of the rebels in Cairo’s Tahrir Square, the nonreligious nature of the demonstrations was stunning. I was struck by what one Egyptian friend told me emotionally by phone: “These were the first demonstrations I’ve seen in my lifetime where people are not shouting against something, like America or Israel. They were not anti-anybody. They were just asking for justice and a better life.” “But,” my friend went on, “in the past the demonstrators had leaders, and now it is just the people asking for democracy.” This then is a genuine reason for worry about Egypt’s future: When and from what circles will its next leaders emerge? The massive crowds in Tahrir Square — which have kept com-

translations from Cairo. They include names of distinguished Egyptians who might take part in a transition team; most are secular intellectuals and technocrats, such as Nobel Prize-winning scientist Ahmed Zewail and Dr. Gawdat el-Malt, president of the Central Auditing Organization, as well as politicians like Amr Moussa, secretary-general of the Arab League. These proposals remind us that there are many talented Egyptians who, given the chance, could emerge into leadership roles. So when people talk about Egypt being “lost,” I respond that Egyptians are just finding themselves. Theirs is a talented population that had given up on the future of its country. Shahira Amin, a noted presenter on stateowned Nile TV, who quit last week when the channel refused to show state-sponsored violence, put it well: “I thought Egypt was a mountain that could not be moved. These young people did what my generation couldn’t do.” A new Egyptian government may be fragmented; its leadership may be weak. It may not be as responsive to U.S. interests as an autocrat would be. But the army — which has strong U.S. ties — is hardly likely to break the peace treaty with Israel. This revolution is “made in Egypt,” it’s not Islamist, and the United States can’t stop it. The wisest U.S. course, which the Obama team is now pursuing, is to help Egyptians organize an orderly transition and build up their political system — into something better than the region has seen. — Trudy Rubin is a columnist and editorial-board member for the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Three sledding accidents had been reported recently from Kansas University, mostly from the Campanile Hill area. One KU junior had suffered YEARS a broken leg when the metal food tray AGO he was using for a sled collided with a IN 1971 tree. A KU freshman, sledding near Ellsworth Hall, had a broken arm. An electronic organ had been stolen from the Baptist Student Center, 1629 W. 19th. Jerry Catt, director of the center, said that at least two persons would have been required to move the organ.

ing despite last week’s violence — have produced no prominent spokesmen. In a situation where the opposition is weak and fragmented, better-organized Islamists could win a plurality in parliament. There is some nascent political organization behind the demonstrations. The youthful organizers of the protests who worked via Facebook prefer to stay in the background. But a spectrum of opposition figures from a broad range of small parties, plus the Muslim Brotherhood, set up a 100-man shadow parliament after rigged parliamentary elections in November. The Brotherhood was permitted only 15 percent of the seats. That group, in turn, appointed a steering committee of 10, including the former head of the International Atomic Energy Agency, Mohamed ElBaradei, who might emerge as a temporary leader. These men could be part of the process leading to free elections next fall. But ElBaradei does not appear to have the appeal of a presidential candidate. The Obama administration has been working behind the scenes to encourage a transitional government that would draw in members of the opposition. Such a government would function until elections in September and give time for new opposition parties to organize — and new leaders to appear. The shape of the transition remains murky as Mubarak ponders his future. But one thing is clear: The Egyptian army would play a major stabilizing role, with public approval. Proposals on how to manage the transition, from various opposition groups, are zipping around the Internet; I’ve been receiving

Care issue To the editor: I extend my compliments to your recent contributor, Bill Simons, for his column (Jan. 29) regarding mental health care in Kansas. With the recent emphasis on cost-cutting in government, the absolute needs for some Kansans with mental health issues have been ignored. Legislators who choose to absolve themselves from these responsibilities quite likely have not had a family member or a friend who is so impaired. Kansas government is in the process of considering further reductions in what actually is the modicum of support it supplies to the mentally ill. If current contemplated measures are enacted, soon there will be no place for them to turn for hospitalization, outpatient care or medication. Jail, “Hoovervilles,” or encampments “down by the river” will be the next step. Kansas can, and absolutely should, do better. In many ways, in this instance, we are our brothers’ keeper. It is time for our citizens to stand up and be counted. Sen. Roger P. Reitz, Manhattan

Reliable mail To the editor: I enjoyed reading the Moodys’ letter of Sunday, Feb. 6. Folks who deserve praise and appreciation should hear it more than

they do. I know we are humbly grateful for those who weather any storm to perform vital services for the community. But an important group was overlooked: mail carriers. They are delivering the mail six days a week regardless. They take no snow days. Most of the services mentioned in the letter are there when we need them, but few require spending 7-8 hours a day outside in the weather. Many carriers with walking routes are not in their vehicles long enough to warm it up, let alone themselves. They move the vehicle a couple blocks and reload their bags. They often lose their scheduled days off, because the bad weather adds greatly to the challenge of delivering the mail on time, and so everyone has to be on duty. They are perhaps not saving our lives, unless you consider the many medicines currently delivered by mail, but they are a tough and hard-working crew that need to know we know what they’re doing for us. Thank you mail carriers everywhere for a job well done. Sarah Peters, Lawrence

Too nasty To the editor: It makes me so sad and upset when I read your editorials about our president of the United States of America. I expect your newspaper to endorse a candi-

date during an election, so I can excuse you for the one you wrote during this last general election. But your comments after President Obama’s State of the Union speech just hit me to the core. I could not believe you could write such bigoted thoughts about his speech. How in the world could you ever think the way you do? He certainly told the Republicans they had better shape up and play ball. Maybe that is what you did not want to hear. I have been ready to cancel my subscription as it makes me so upset when such harsh comments are made about our president. He is trying so hard under such awful circumstances, and he really cares about us, even you. I just have to tell you how I feel about your nastiness and hope you will be less nasty in the future. I would love to be a newspaper publisher and give you some competition! Alice R. Murphy, Lawrence

Apathy to blame To the editor: July 20, 1969, the United States was the envy of the world. Americans Neil Armstrong and “Buzz” Aldrin were the first men to walk on the moon. There were no venomous debates about whether these astronauts were Democrats or Republicans, liberal or conservative. They were Americans.

Forty years later, we are a country with a national debt exceeding $14 trillion ($45,000 for every living man, woman and child). The disparity between the wealthy and the middle class has never been greater and continues to increase. What happened? In my opinion, the number one reason is voter apathy. We voters have been a pathetic herd of sheep that have allowed our elected officials to govern as autocrats for the sole purpose of remaining in office. The politicians know where the votes are so they align themselves with the undeserving (Wall Street, AIG, Fannie, Freddie, GM, unions, etc.). In my opinion, city hall and Douglas County officials could be the poster children for no growth, stagnation and mediocrity. Our city’s public transportation system is a classic example of inefficiency. Empty buses polluting our air and creating potholes are an everyday occurrence. City Hall turned their backs on 120 new jobs that Lowe’s would have created with no taxpayer incentives. This past year, Douglas County officials raised our taxes because they didn’t have the backbone to cut expenses. Today, these same officials are providing Berry Plastics a $431,300 tax break to create 11 new jobs. Is it any wonder that taxpayers are mad as hell? J. Joe Herynk, Lawrence

Riley County rodeo to offer beer for 1 year MANHATTAN — Organizers of the annual rodeo at the Riley County Fairgrounds in Manhattan say the chance to sell beer could save the event. Riley County Commission on Monday approved a motion to allow the Kaw Valley Rodeo Association to sell beer this year as a one-year trial. Rodeo organizers say the economy has hurt sponsorships for the rodeo, which runs from July 21-25. Steve French, vice president of the association, says organizers had seriously considered canceling the rodeo this year because of financial problems. The beer sales are expected to create more revenue, which rodeo organizers hope will attract more contestants and fans. The Manhattan Mercury reports that vendors will be able to sell beer for only one hour before the rodeo and stop before the last event begins.

FREE STATE BOYS 72, SHAWNEE MISSION SOUTH 65

Tom Keegan tkeegan@ljworld.com

Numbers illustrate KU depth A basketball team doesn’t make it all the way to second in the national rankings without compiling some amazing numbers along the way. It’s time to have some fun with data created by the entertaining Kansas University basketball team. The 10 most remarkable numbers in reverse order, so as to build the drama, associated with a very balanced, deep team: 10. Walk-on Jordan Juenemann has hit 80 percent of his three-pointers, making 4 of 5. He has scored 14 points in 28 minutes. 9. Kansas has had a player foul out of a game just twice. Markieff Morris was limited to 19 minutes against UCLA. Jeff Withey was whistled for his fifth personal after playing 14 minutes against UMKC. 8. Seven different players have had at least a share of the team lead in scoring in a game: Marcus Morris (11 times), Markieff Morris (five), Tyrel Reed (three), Josh Selby (three), Thomas Robinson (two), Tyshawn Taylor (two), Brady Morningstar (one). 7. Eight different players have had at least a share of the team assists lead in at least one game: Taylor (14), Morningstar (seven), Selby (five), Elijah Johnson (two), Reed (two), Travis Releford (one), Marcus Morris (one), Markieff Morris (one). 6. KU ranks No. 1 in the nation in field-goal accuracy, hitting 52 percent, and is eighth in field-goal percentage defense (.383). 5. Tyshawn Taylor hasn’t let his recent shooting struggles — 6-for-26 from the field (23 percent) in the past four games — impair his shooting from the free-throw line. He’s hit 88 percent from the line in Big 12 play. 4. In Big 12 play, the three post players who get the majority of the minutes (the twins and Robinson) are shooting a combined .647 from the field. Marcus ranks 10th in the nation with a .603 percentage. 3. The Jayhawks are shooting a remarkable .507 (37-for-73) on three-point shots in the past four games. Another way of looking at it: They have scored 111 points on 73 shots. Generating more points than that shooting two-point field goals would require making 56 of 73 shots (.767 percent). Kansas has shot .558 (24-of-43) from long range in the past two games. 2. In the past 10 games, Morningstar has 38 assists and five turnovers, an assist-to-turnover ratio of 7.6-to-1. In the past two games, Morningstar has played 75 minutes and has 13 assists without turning it over once. “Brady is playing the best basketball I’ve seen him play since I have been here,” Marcus Morris said of Morningstar after Monday night’s 103-86 victory against Missouri in Allen Fieldhouse. 1. The Jayhawks are 56-4 in the past two seasons, a winning percentage of .933. Every game has a winner and a loser and less than seven percent of the time, fans of KU’s foes were able to turn their televisions off in a good mood. That, of course, means that more than 93 percent of the time, KU fans turned off their TV sets and drove home in great moods, right? There is no such thing as being in a bad mood after your team wins, is there? The only losses: at Tennessee, at Oklahoma State, against Northern Iowa in Oklahoma City, against Texas in Allen Fieldhouse. In games played outside the state of Oklahoma, Kansas is 55-2 the past two seasons.

Shootout at South

Adversity molds Jayhawks into team By Gary Bedore gbedore@ljworld.com

After playing 10 games in 29 days — six on the road, with an unexpected two-day trip to Washington, D.C., also thrown into the wintry mix — Kansas University’s basketball players can finally exhale. “I mean, I feel good. We just beat Missouri and get the next day off,” KU senior Mario Little said after Monday’s 103-86 home victory over the Tigers. The Jayhawks (23-1, 8-1), who won nine of those 10 games, certainly distinguished themselves on the court during that brutal stretch. It’s one in which some games were I think we played withare closer out the injured Travis than we have Releford and ever been. I Josh Selby, as well as grief- think we like each other a stricken Thomas lot. I think we Robinson, genuinely whose mom, Lisa, died on care for each Jan. 21, back in other. I think D.C. at this point “I believe you don’t of the become a season, we’ve team until you been through go through enough I can some stuff,” said coach Bill say we have Self, happy to kind of report the become a 2010-11 Jayteam.” hawks meshed into a true team over — KU coach Bill Self the past four weeks. “Some teams go through a lot. Some teams don’t go through quite as much. This year’s team has been through more, certainly off the court. I think we are closer than we have ever been. I think we like each other a lot. I think we genuinely care for each other. I think at this point of the season, we’ve been through enough I can say we have kind of become a team. “Hopefully we are not close to the team we can become, but I think we are much further along than we were three to four weeks ago,” he added. The Jayhawks appear to have great chemistry on the court, evidenced by 23 assists on their 37 baskets versus Mizzou. “I think they (Jayhawks) are balanced and they share the ball. I really like our unselfishness and guys are really starting to find their roles,” Self said. “Look at what Brady (Morningstar) has done the last two weeks. He can make a shot or be a ball-mover. He gives other guys a chance to make plays. Certainly he’s played great.” Senior guard Morningstar scored eight points with seven assists and no turnovers against Missouri just two days after scoring 19 points with six assists and no turnovers at Nebraska.

Hot-shooting Firebirds top Raiders

By Ben Ward Journal-World Sports Writer

OVERLAND PARK — As far as defensive performances go, Tuesday night certainly wasn’t the Free State High boys basketball team’s best of the season. On offense, though? The Firebirds couldn’t miss. Bolstered by a 62-percent night from the floor, the Firebirds downed a hot-shooting Shawnee Mission South team, 72-65, on Tuesday night at South. “It’s just good to see how one team can make a lot of shots and we can come back and make just as many,” senior Evan Manning said of

the Raiders, who made 49 percent of their shots. Whenever Manning, who tallied 15 points, six assists, four rebounds and five steals, wasn’t dialed in from the perimeter, it seemed like someone else always was. “When we move the ball and don’t let it get sticky, we really get it side to side and attack once we reverse it a time or two, we’re a pretty good offensive team,” coach Chuck Law said. The Firebirds trailed, 13-12, after a foul-laden first quarter until senior Eric Watson took over to begin the second. Watson scored 11 of his 24 points in the quarter, including the first

three baskets of the period, which boosted the Firebirds and sent them to the half with a 34-26 lead. Despite being slowed up a bit by the aggressive FSHS defense, the Raiders made 8 of 13 shots in the first half, mainly by using shot fakes and driving the lane before kicking it out to open shooters on the perimeter. Dylan Christie led SMS with 16 points and was one of five Raiders to knock down a three-pointer. The Raiders, still locked in after the intermission, capitalized off of some sloppy Firebird turnovers and trimmed the lead down to 42-39 midway through the third. Please see FSHS BOYS, page 3B

Lions sneak past Lancers in OT By Clark Goble Journal-World Sports Writer

LAWRENCE HIGH’S KJ PRITCHARD SNAGS the Shawnee Mission East inbounds pass to seal the Lions’ victory as time ran out. Lawrence High defeated Shawnee Mission East, 61-58, in overtime Tuesday in Prairie Village.

PRAIRIE VILLAGE — It isn’t surprising that junior KJ Pritchard made big plays to help the Lawrence High boys basketball team squeak out a 61-58 overtime road victory at Shawnee Mission East on Tuesday. He’s been hitting tough shots in close games all season. To even get to overtime, though, the Lions can thank coach Mike Lewis and his impeccable timing. With six seconds to go in the

fourth quarter, LHS junior Anthony Buffalomeat pulled down an East miss and started to push the ball upcourt. The ball was poked loose by an East defender. The Lancers’ Vance Wentz scooped up the ball and scored what appeared to be the game-winning layup. But a whistle sounded just as Wentz’s shot went up. Lewis had realized Buffalomeat was scrambling and called a timeout before the Lions lost possession. “I had to get up and get moving out of my box and start to get the official’s attention,” Lewis

said. “You just have to scream at them.” The referee turned his head to acknowledge the timeout call, making him unable to see that Buffalomeat had lost possession in the next moment. The three referees met with Lewis and East coach Shawn Hair and informed them that the Lions would get the timeout. “It probably would have made coach Hair feel better if (the referee) would’ve had eyes in the back of his head,” Lewis said.

Talib tapped defensive back of year J-W Staff Reports

Former Kansas University standout cornerback Aqib Talib was named the 2010 Defensive Back of the Year by the NFL Alumni Association on Tuesday. Talib, who plays for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, intercepted six passes in 11 games last season. He returned one for a touchdown. The third-year pro from Richardson, Texas, has 15 interceptions in his Bucs career. Arguably his most memorable moment at KU was when he intercepted a pass and returned it for a touchdown in KU’s 24-21 Orange

Bowl victory over Virginia Tech in 2008. The 12-1 squad was the winningest team in KU football history. Talib’s six picks in 2010 trailed Baltimore’s Ed Reed, who had eight. Talib Talib earned the NFC’s Defensive Player of the Week on Nov. 3, 2010, after he picked off two passes against Arizona, returning one for a score. He became the first Tampa Bay player since Donnie

Abraham (1999-2001) to record at least four interceptions in three straight seasons. The 6-foot-1, 205-pound Talib was a first-round draft pick (20th overall) of Tampa Bay in the 2008 draft. Also on Tuesday, Kansas City’s Todd Haley received the NFL Alumni’s Coach of the Year. The Chiefs won the AFC West and finished 10-6 before bowing out of the playoffs to Baltimore. Haley made significant progress with the Chiefs, who finished 4-12 and last in the AFC West just two seasons ago. Other awards on Tuesday from

COMMENTARY

Super Bowl over, so ... now what? By Jim Souhan Minneapolis Star Tribune (Minneapolis)

MINNEAPOLIS — Just as the calendar year begins when the ball drops in Times Square, so the new sports year begins with the falling of confetti at the Super Bowl. As we belly-crawl through the briny muck of the swampy segment of the sports calendar known as February, this is a good time to fix everything that is wrong with the world of perspiring arts (as legendary Dallas Morning News columnist Blackie Sherrod called them). Here is one man’s Sports Reformation: Pro hockey: There aren’t enough skilled players to make the average game interesting, the shootout is silly and teams are given a point even when they effectively have lost the contest, making the NHL the professional version of fifth grade inhouse soccer (congratulations, Little Billy, you didn’t fall down! Here’s a medal!) Every game should be worth a winnertakes-all two points. Get rid of the shootout, and make teams play 4-on-4, then 3-on-3, then 2-on-2, then 1-on-1 until there is a winner. Pro basketball: Install new contract and salary cap rules that make it easier to trade star players. I keep hearing complaints about the attention being paid to the potential Carmelo Anthony trade, but the speculation has been the most interesting aspect of the league for the past two months. You don’t expect the average sports fan to care about regular-season NBA games, do you? It’s not that there needs to be less talk; it’s that there needs to be more action. The NBA should be like your buddies’ fantasy basketball league: Stars should be shuffled all season, until you have superpowers vying in the playoffs. College basketball: The best college game of the season might have been played between UCLA and Cal. Why? Because both of the coaches burned their timeouts early, so Cal’s comeback and UCLA’s eventual game-winning rally occurred in real time, with frenetic endto-end runs and the players making decisions on the fly. What, you’d rather see windbag coaches stopping the action every 20 seconds to draw up inbounds plays that don’t work? Pro baseball: If a pitcher steps off the rubber or a batter steps out of the box during an at-bat, he shall be tasered by that Philly security guard who nailed the fleeing loser fan in the back last season. Pro football: Simplify the rules regarding violence: If you hit an opponent in the head, you are ejected, fined and suspended. We’re allowing people to be damaged for our entertainment. We need to become more humane. College football: Duh. A playoff. Think about this: If the NFL had set up the same postseason structure as the NCAA, the Patriots and Falcons would have played in the Super Bowl on March 14, and we would have skipped the three weekends of playoffs that proved to be the highlight of the season. Soccer: Install a shot clock. If a team doesn’t shoot within one minute, the other team gets the ball at midfield.

Titans fire O-coordinator Heimerdinger NASHVILLE, TENN. — Titans coach Mike Munchak has fired offensive coordinator Mike Heimerdinger along with two other assistants as he starts to remake his coaching staff a day after taking over the top job. Heimerdinger, who is continuing cancer treatment after diagnosed in November, confirmed to The Associated Press on Tuesday that he had been fired. The Titans released a statement that defensive assistant Rayna Stewart and offensive assistant Richie Wessman that they will not be retained. “It’s never easy to be fired,” Heimerdinger said. “He has to do what’s good for the Titans, and Munch will do what’s best for the Titans. I appreciate my time here, but it’s never easy to be fired.”

NFL Champs bid farewell to fans

Nev. sports books eke out $724K LAS VEGAS — Sports books in Nevada hung on to win just over $724,000 from Super Bowl bets despite heavy gambling on the Green Bay Packers and lots of scoring, Nevada gambling regulators said Tuesday.

Saints OK with Payton move NEW ORLEANS — Sean Payton is moving his family to Dallas and the Saints have no problem with it — however, many New Orleans fans do. Payton confirmed Tuesday that he buying a house in Dallas and is moving his wife and two children to Texas while he remains the Saints’ head coach.

Raiders promote Biekert to LBs

GREEN BAY, WIS. — The Green Bay Packers took one last chance to say goodbye to their fans and each other. Tuesday was a final day to publicly celebrate their Super Bowl-winning season, and the Packers did it in style in front of more than 56,000 fans who paid $5 to spend a final hour with their team for the first time in 36 days. The last time the Packers were at Lambeau Field, they beat Chicago in a must-win game that propelled them to a championship run, ending with a 31-25 Super Bowl victory over Pittsburgh on Sunday.

Appeals won’t block suspensions MINNEAPOLIS — The Minnesota Court of Appeals ruled Tuesday that it won’t permanently block the NFL from suspending Vikings defensive tackles Kevin Williams and Pat Williams for violating the league’s anti-doping policy. Barring another appeal, the ruling appears to clear the way for the NFL to suspend the players, which it has been trying to do since both tested positive for a banned diuretic in 2008.

Cheated fans get second option NEW YORK — The NFL has added a second option for the roughly 400 fans who had to give up their seats at the Super Bowl: They can choose to attend any future Super Bowl instead of being limited to the 2012 game. The league initially said Sunday it would give $2,400, three times the face value of the ticket, to the fans who were forced to watch the game on monitors or use standing-room platforms after some temporary seating sections were not completed in time.

ALAMEDA, CALIF. — The Oakland Raiders have promoted Greg Biekert from defensive assistant to linebackers coach. The team announced the move Tuesday. Biekert joined the coaching staff last year as a defensive assistant. He played linebacker for 11 years in the NFL, including nine with the Raiders.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL Georgia RB suspended ATLANTA — Georgia coach Mark Richt suspended tailback Washaun Ealey on Tuesday for failing to follow “the Georgia way.” Richt’s statement did not disclose specifics of what led to the suspension for Ealey.

NBA Pierce to defend 3-point crown NEW YORK — Paul Pierce will defend his three-point shootout title against a field that includes fellow Boston Celtics All-Star Ray Allen and NBA scoring leader Kevin Durant of Oklahoma City. The three-point contest will be part of AllStar events on Feb. 19 in Los Angeles.

Howard annoyed by contract talk ORLANDO, FLA. — Magic center Dwight Howard said he is annoyed by the recent talk about his contract and the possibility he would leave Orlando when he becomes a free agent. Howard’s current contract runs through the 2012-13 season, but he could utilize an early termination option and become a free agent after next season.

Seabury trounces Wetmore

KU’s Goodrich improving By Matt Tait mtait@ljworld.com

Kansas University women’s basketball coach Bonnie Henrickson has a simple philosophy about basketball in February. “You’re getting worse or you’re getting better,” Henrickson said. “Nobody stays the same.” It remains to be seen which group Henrickson’s team settles into — the Jayhawks (15-8 overall, 2-7 in Big 12) are 1-1 since tearing January off the wall calendar — but one of her leaders has planted herself firmly in the category that matches the title of a Beatles tune. Angel Goodrich, KU’s sophomore point guard known, thus far, as much for her unfortunate injuries as her play on the floor, seems to have hit her stride in the last few weeks. After missing seven games in the middle of the season, Goodrich has strung together a stretch of 13 straight starts. She’ll look to make it 14 straight when the Jayhawks

play host to No. 20 Iowa State (16-6, 4-4) at 7 tonight at Allen Fieldhouse. Henrickson said the reason Goodrich has bounced back so many times was her inner drive. “She’s arguably one of the most coachable kids I’ve ever had,” Henrickson said. “Her coachability is something that I have great respect for. She wants to do it right and she wants to be coached and she just continues getting better and better.” There was a time, this season, when those around the KU program wondered if Goodrich would ever be full strength again. Her play over the last few games has answered those questions. During the past five contests, Goodrich has logged 38 minutes or more four times. The only game she didn’t was last week’s 81-53 blowout of Colorado in which she scored four points and dished eight assists (against one turnover) in 25 minutes. In 16 games, Goodrich is averaging seven points, five assists and three rebounds

while playing 31 minutes per night. Since the beginning of conference play, Goodrich has raised her assist average to seven assists per outing and, during the last f ive games, the Tahlequah, Okla., native has averaged 8.8 points, 7 assists, 3.3 rebounds and 1.2 steals per game. “The resilience she’s shown and the toughness she’s shown, through the process and even after, she’s been a kid who, no matter what you ask her to do, she does it without a flinch,” Henrickson said. The Jayhawks enter tonight’s game smarting a bit from their recent stretch. Last week, KU snapped a fivegame conference losing skid with the win against Colorado. But the woes returned three days later, when the Jayhawks fell, 80-68, at Texas. Iowa State has won three of its last four Big 12 games after opening league play with a 1-3 record. ISU is led by senior guard Kelsey Bolte, who has averaged 17.8 points per game.

“It just came out of nowhere really,” Manning said. “We weren’t expecting it. They threw the first punch in the second half and usually we do that.” It’s not as if Manning and the Firebirds were without an answer, though.

BOX SCORE

LHS boys down SM East in OT CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1B

With a minute to go in overtime, the Lions were trailing 58-57. Junior KJ Pritchard caught the ball in the corner, pump faked, eyed down his defender and skied for the three-pointer. The ball barely hit the net as it fell through. “We know he can shoot it,” Lewis said. “He keeps hitting big shots like that, and I think that kind of fuels his confidence.” Wentz missed a runner on the other end, and Pritchard’s free throw and subsequent steal of the final inbounds pass cemented the threepoint victory. He finished with 22 points. Pritchard was visibly frustrated by the Lancers’ boxand-one defense early in the game. East junior Alex Schoegler was in Pritchard’s chest for the first several posses-

sions, forcing Pritchard to take contested shots. But Schoegler picked up three early fouls, and the Lancers switched into a 3-2 zone for the rest of the game. Lewis said Pritchard is improving at keeping his composure against tight defense.

“He’s skilled, and as long as he can keep his head in tight games, he can help us and he will help us,” Lewis said. The Lancers (4-11) held a 50-38 lead in the fourth quarter before the Lions (6-9) went on a 14-2 run to tie it. East failed to convert several free-throw opportunities late, but LHS also hit open shots to close the deficit. Lewis wished his team would have competed hard in certain portions of the game, but as the Lions made their way to their locker room, he applauded them for keeping things interesting. “When you find a way to win when you’re not playing so well and things aren’t going your way, that’s a sign of some good things to come,” Lewis said. The Lions travel to Olathe East on Friday.

Jayhawks mesh through adversity CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1B

Morningstar has started the last two games in place of frosh guard Selby (stress reaction, right foot), who figures to be back for Saturday’s 3 p.m. home game versus Colorado. “We were pretty good offensively at Colorado and Josh was a big reason why,” Self said of Selby, who had 17 points and five assists versus the Buffs. “We were pretty good offensively against K-State and Josh was a big reason why (12 points, four assists). I do think from Josh’s standpoint, when you are over there watching (from bench), you see the ball is moving. We’ve got to get to when he is in the game, the ball moves like that and he’s able to take advantage of a closeout and things like that, which I think he is starting to get. “I don’t think he’ll be anything but helpful as we move forward and he gets healthy, which I don’t think is far away. When we run bad offense, Josh is still the best we’ve got at getting his own shot and every team needs somebody like that,” Self said.

As far as the defensive end ... Mizzou did torch the Jayhawks for 86 points off 51.7 percent shooting. “Nationally according to Kenpom (kenpom.com) ... I don’t buy into all those things (but) as of last night we were second most effective defense in the country,” Self said. “I don’t see it that way overall. I see it as an area we need to get better in. “We go through phases in games where we really guard and phases in games we get pretty lackadaisical. If I was going to identify three areas (for improvement) ... taking care of the ball would obviously be one; our rebounding could become better even though we’ve done a decent job; and our halfcourt defense can become better even though we are not bad. Those areas I definitely think need to be addressed and given attention.” Junior Marcus Morris agrees the defense needs work. “What did they score? 86? That’s a lot for somebody to come in your house and score 86. That’s not a good job,” Morris said. “We’ve got to keep getting better on

defense. Our offense is getting better.” ●

Believe it or not: KU scored 1.45 points per possession versus MU on Monday night, its highest total of the season against any team. Jesse Newell in his blog on KUsports.com reports that this was the most points scored per possession against the Tigers in any game of the last 15 years. Only one opponent during that time had even topped 1.40 points per possession, and that was KU in the 2001-02 season (1.42). The highest any other team has scored against Missouri in the past 15 years was Texas A&M in 2004-05 (1.38 PPP). What’s more, in the second half, KU scored 1.67 PPP off 34 possessions. No Div. I team has scored 1.67 PPP in a game all season — not even against an opponent from a lower division. Newell’s numbers indicate that KU’s offense right now may be better than any Jayhawk offense in the last 15 years during conference play.

K-State’s Kelly under scrutiny Wire Report

MANHATTAN — Curtis Kelly is the subject of a Kansas State athletic department investigation for a violation of a condition in the student-athlete handbook, the Wichita Eagle reported on Tuesday night. The violation could earn him dismissal from the team, a source Kelly within the department told the Eagle. The source said Kelly, a senior, is appealing the violation. A KSU official said he remains on the team. K-State officials refused to specify the nature of Kelly’s violation, citing student privacy issues. Kansas State’s Freddy Asprilla left the team in midJanuary to explore professional opportunities in his home country of Colombia. In addition, Wally Judge quit the team last week. Kansas State is 16-8 overall and 4-5 in the Big 12.

Hamilton, UT tearing up Big 12 AUSTIN , T EXAS (AP) — After everything went so wrong for the Texas last season, Jordan Hamilton apologized to his teammates. While there was plenty of blame to go around after the Longhorns went from No. 1 at midseason to one-and-done in the NCAA Tournament, the freshman felt he’d been selfish with the ball. “I was taking bad shots, not playing hard all the time, not understanding how hard you have to play on the college level,” Hamilton said. Once the apologies were made, Hamilton not only settled into being a better teammate, he’s become the offensive leader on the Longhorns’ as they’ve ripped through the first half of the Big 12 schedule and made a surprising rise to No. 3 in the AP Top 25. The more mature Hamilton is leading Texas in scoring

(18.9 points), rebounding (7.6) and has become a better passer and defender. His 55 assists rank third on the team, just three behind guard Dogus Balbay. Defensively, he helped shut down No. 22 Texas A&M’s leading scorer, Khris Middleton, the Hamilton Aggies’ leading scorer, in last week’s 69-49 win. Texas (20-3, 8-0) plays at Oklahoma (12-10, 4-4) tonight. When the teams met in Austin on Jan. 15, Hamilton made five three-pointers in a 20-point Texas victory. At 6-foot-7, Hamilton is a tough matchup for smaller players on the perimeter and he’s big enough to muscle

inside to post up defenders. Hamilton has been named Big 12 player of the week three times and will be a strong candidate for player of the year. “Obviously we know he’s a great scorer, and he’s a guy that loves to shoot, loves to score,” Oklahoma coach Jeff Capel said. That love to score is part of what made things tough for Hamilton last season. When the bad shots started to fly and didn’t stop, Hamilton, his coaches and his teammates got frustrated. After the season ended, Hamilton needed to have some heart-to-heart talks with his teammates. “I think last year, people had the sense that he was a selfish guy,” senior forward Gary Johnson said. “He wanted to let it be known he’s far from that.”

West) won their fourth straight game since their only loss, 71-58 at BYU on Jan. 26. Freshman reserve guard Jamaal Franklin scored a career-best l3 and Brian Carlwell added 10. Will Clyburn, the secondleading scorer in the conference at 18.3 points per game, had 18 for Utah (10-14, 3-7). Gay, a senior guard, played in his 128th consecutive game, the most in school history. He came up big in the 21-3 run, which spanned 4 minutes and helped SDSU go from a 7-6 lead to a 28-9 advantage with 11:32 left before halftime. Gay had a steal and a layup, and another steal and a pass to Carlwell for a fastbreak layup. Gay made a pretty left-handed reverse layup, and then, with the student section — “The Show” — chanting “Show no mercy,” hit a threepoint shot. Carlwell had six points during the run, nearly twice his average. San Diego State made nine of 11 shots during the run. UTAH (10-14) O’Brien 4-9 0-2 8, Clyburn 7-18 3-4 18, Foster 28 0-0 4, Jo.

No. 14 Purdue 67, Indiana 53 WEST LAFAYETTE, IND. — Purdue finally beat Indiana with its tenacity Tuesday night. E’Twaun Moore scored 25 points and JaJuan Johnson added 15 on his birthday to help the 14th-ranked Boilermakers pull away from Indiana. The celebration doesn’t get any better than this for the two seniors, who have helped spark a resurgence in Boilermakers basketball. They have won 100 games in their careers and it came with a fourth straight over their most bitter rival. It’s the first time since 1996-97 that Purdue (19-5, 8-3 Big Ten) has taken four straight from the Hoosiers. Indiana, which played again without injured sophomore starters Maurice Creek and Christian Watford, hung around.

HIGH SCHOOL AREA BASKETBALL ROUNDUP

Mill Valley sweeps Tonganoxie By Benton Smith basmith@theworldco.info

Boys Mill Valley 60, Tonganoxie 45 SHAWNEE — With post players in foul trouble most of the night, the Tonganoxie High boys basketball team needed to knock down some outside jumpers Tuesday at Mill Valley. However, the Chieftains didn’t find much perimeter success and suffered a loss to Mill Valley (8-7). Starting THS posts Dane Erickson and Dylan Jacobs spent a lot of time on the bench, a trend that began early on, with Jacobs picking up two fouls in the first two minutes. Erickson picked up his third foul in the second quarter. The result, Tonganoxie coach Shawn Phillips said, was a five-guard look on the floor for his team for most of the evening. Co m p o u n d i n g m a tte rs for the Chieftains (6-8 overall, 1-7 Kaw Valley League) was a cold shooting night from behind the three-point line, where they went 3-for18. Before Erickson got in foul trouble, he scored 10 of his 18 points in the f irst quarter. At 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Tonganoxie plays at K.C. Turner in Kansas City, Kan.

Baldwin 45, Eudora 26 BALDWIN — After losing six straight games, the Baldwin High boys basketball team enjoyed a much-needed victory. The Bulldogs opened the second half with a 14-4 run to break the game open Baldwin carried a 19-10 lead into halftime. Baldwin seniors Kyle Pattrick and Justin Vander Tuig combined for 10 points during the spurt. Baldwin and Eudora split their regular season contests, with each school winning its home games. Baldwin 11 8 18 8 — 45 Eudora 6 4 6 10 — 26 Baldwin — Chad Berg 5, Kyle Pattrick 9, Britton Schroeder 3, Cornell Brown 6, Chip Kueffer 2, Caleb Gaylord 12, Justin Vander Tuig 8. Eudora — David Pierce 2, Derek Webb 2, Andrew Ballock 9, Tyler Hadl 2, Jordan Ballock 7, Nick Becker 4.

Girls Mill Valley 39, Tonganoxie 34 SHAWNEE — The Tonganoxie High girls basketball team’s defense kept it in the game Tuesday, but some unproductive stretches on offense prevented the Chieftains from winning. THS scored just one point in the third quarter and went on to lose to Mill Valley (12-2). The one-point quarter epitomized Tonganoxie’s troubles, coach Randy Kraft said. The Chieftains (5-9 overall, 2-6 Kaw Valley League) were only down four at the half, and Kraft said it was because of the team’s defense. At 6 p.m. on Thursday, Tonganoxie plays at K.C. Turner in Kansas City, Kan. Tonganoxie 7 14 1 12 — 34 Mill Valley 8 17 5 9 — 39 Tonganoxie — Amanda Holroyd 9, Tayler Miles 1, Danielle Miller 5, Jenny Whitledge 10, Hannah Kemp 4, Madee Walker 1, Emma Stilgenbauer 4.

PULSE

L AWRENCE J OURNAL -WORLD

New dietary guidelines include focus on nutrients of public concern Q:

I know the 2010 Dietary Guidelines were finally released last week. Can you summarize what they are emphasizing?

A:

First, for those of you that don’t know what the Dietary Guidelines for Americans (DGA) are, let me explain. The DGA provides advice for making food choices that promote good health, a healthy weight and help prevent disease for healthy Americans ages 2 and over. The advice is based on a rigorous review of the scientific evidence through a transparent, unbiased process. It is released by the Secretaries of United States Department of Agriculture and Health and Human Services every five years. The two major themes are balancing calories to manage body weight and focusing on nutrient-dense foods and beverages. Balancing calories to manage body weight includes the concepts of controlling total calorie intake to manage body weight, increasing physical activity and avoiding inactivity. Focusing on nutrient-dense foods and beverages includes the concepts of eating vegetables, fruits, whole grains, fat-free or low-fat dairy products, and seafood more often, and eating foods and beverages high in solid fats (major sources of saturated and trans fats), and added sugars less often, and reducing sodium intake. The 2010 Dietary Guidelines’ Call to Action includes three guiding principles: 1. Ensure that all Americans have access to nutritious foods and opportunities for physical activity. 2. Facilitate individual behavior change through environmental strategies. 3. Set the stage for lifelong healthy eating, physical activity and weight management behaviors. Chapter 6 of the 2010 DGA, a new section, acknowledges the influence

Cooking Q&A

Susan Krumm skrumm@oznet.ksu.edu

of the broader food and physical activity environment on Americans’ daily food, beverage and physical activity choices. This section calls for improvements to the environment via systematic and coordinated efforts among all sectors of influence. The factors and influencers are divided into various sectors: ● Individual factors — demographic factors (such as age, gender, income, race/ethnicity, genetics, presence of disability), psychosocial factors, knowledge and skills, and gene-environment interactions. ● Environmental Settings — schools, workplaces, recreational facilities, food service and retail establishments, and other community settings, such as faith-based organizations. ● Sectors of Influence — government, public health, and health care systems, agriculture, industry, community design and safety, foundations and funders, and media. ● Social and cultural norms and values that govern our thoughts and behaviors, such as belief systems, heritage, religion, priorities, lifestyles and body image. Additional differences include: ● The 2010 Key Recommendations for food group intake are directional rather than providing the precise quantitative amounts that should be consumed. Although they do not specify quantities, an entire chapter (Chapter 5) and several appendices discuss eating patterns that include specific quantities. ● Inclusion of a key rec-

ommendation for increasing seafood intake. ● Eating behaviors are addressed (e.g., breakfast, snacking, fast food), and the association of screen time with increased body weight was assessed. ● Specific foods that should be limited because they are substantial sources of sodium, saturated fat, cholesterol, trans fat and added sugars are identified. Reduce daily sodium intake to less than 2,300 milligrams and further reduce intake to 1,500 milligrams among persons who are 51 and older and those of any age who are African-American or have hypertension, diabetes or chronic kidney disease. The 1,500 milligram recommendation applies to about half of the U.S. population, including children, and the majority of adults. ● There is a focus on nutrients of public health concern, (potassium, dietary fiber, calcium and vitamin D), rather than on nutrients with intakes below recommended levels. ● A new appendix table includes key consumer behaviors and potential strategies for professionals to use in implementing the dietary guidelines. ● New guidance for alcohol consumption by breastfeeding women is included. To download the guidelines, go to www.cnpp.usda. gov/dietaryguidelines.htm .

For people who have considered eating a whole sleeve of Girl Scout cookies at one sitting, labels stating that a single serving is two or four cookies may seem a tad unrealistic — even arbitrary. Not so, says the Food and Drug Administration. The agency instructs manufacturers to base their serving sizes on its chart of “reference amounts customarily consumed.” The RACC chart is based on data from a large national survey that reflects what people eat “under actual conditions of use.” It also considers other factors, including the normal serving size in other countries. For soup, the resulting serving size can be about one cup. For cereal, half a cup. For chips it can be as few as six pieces. And for cookies, the amount is 30 grams — about two Tagalongs, or about four Thin Mints. Agency representatives agree that serving sizes, which haven’t been updated since the Nutrition Facts Label was launched in the early ‘90s, are in need of review. That process is under way. “There’s been a lot of discussion over whether the current serving sizes accurately represent current eating habits,” said FDA spokeswoman Siobhan DeLancey, “but the counterpoint question is whether increasing the serving size will implicitly ‘permit’ people to eat more.” Until those questions are answered, the Center for Science in the Public Interest has petitioned the FDA to consid-

Set the mood for a special Valentine’s Day meal CONTINUED FROM PAGE 8B

through without a clichéd or overly cheesy present. He says, if possible, to avoid anything with hearts or cherubs or anything else overtly symbolic in your wrapping, cards or decor. The best way to stay elegant in the midst of chocolate hearts? Go for a single, strong, classic color like white or red, and avoid sprinkling rose petals anywhere. It’s been done before. Though, Wisdom says that if you couldn’t resist and bought a dozen roses, to think about breaking up the bouquet and putting each flower in a separate small vase and creating a collage.

Set the table Work ahead. Vandegrift says that because Valentine’s falls on a Monday this year, it would be a good idea to use Sunday as an opportunity to do your kitchen prep. Chop your vegetables, prepare your meat, prebake your entree, if possible. Basically, get all the hard or messy parts of meal preparation over with. That way, after your special Valentine’s dinner you don’t have to lose the loveydovey feeling to do the dishes or clean up a war zone of a kitchen. Keep it simple, but special. While the idea of a big, romantic meal is great, Vandegrift says you can totally deflate the feeling if you’re

stressing out over every little thing and burning off that stress by taking it out on your loved one. Consider keeping the meal simple. Pick a recipe you know how to make and fancy it up with a special ingredient. Or make something you’d traditionally make, but add a special dessert. One idea? Vandegrift calls those small, simple homemade “lava cakes” the perfect Valentine’s treat because they mix up quickly and are a “fast and sexy little dessert.” Don’t make the meal the star. When you spend a lot of time in the kitchen on a meal, you often spend as much time talking about it as you do eating it (think of

all those discussions of moist turkey at Thanksgiving). You don’t want to do that on Valentine’s Day, Vandegrift says. Rather than slaving over something so long you can’t talk about anything else, do as Vandegrift suggested above and keep things as simple as you can. Keep it, um, light. Vandegrift points out that you probably don’t want to have a heavy meal on Valentine’s Day. No one wants to feel full and sleepy after a Valentine’s meal, just in case you want to do something romantic afterward, like, say, making snow angels. — Staff writer Sarah Henning can be reached at 832-7187.

food and drink and fellowship. So we sent our husbands to their respective watch parties where they could belly buck and high five with someone who cares. And us? We decided to have an unabashed White Trash Food Fest, complete with Rotel Dip, little smokies and armadillo balls. “What is an armadillo ball?” you ask. Well, I’m so happy you did. It’s my New Favorite Thing. I think you’ll understand why. An armadillo ball is a jalapeno popper, encased in meat. Namely, sausage. Technically, I think you’re supposed to call them armadillo eggs, but I think balls has a nicer ring to it, don’t you? To make these little delicacies, begin by preheating your oven to 375 degrees and cleaning 6 jalapenos. Slice them open, scoop out the seeds and guts, and then cut them in half again. This will leave you with (oh, I was told there would be no math) 24 jalapeno quarters. Spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray and set it out for your assembly area. Next, make your filling. Combine a brick of cream cheese (room temp), a cup of cheddar cheese, shredded, a healthy sprinkling of fresh cilantro, a teaspoon of cumin, a teaspoon of garlic powder, a teaspoon of chili powder (trust me, just do it), salt and pepper. Stir that up and then fill each quarter of jalapeno with the mixture. Lastly, cover each one in sausage. I did some this time with breakfast sausage and some with Italian sausage. Both were delicious, but I have to say the Italian sausage brought a little more to the party. So, form a little disk out of about two tablespoons of meat, set your jalapeno quarter in the center, and then just sort of push the sausage up and around until the whole thing is encased. Voila! Now, bake them for about 18 minutes. Likely, some of the cheese will escape. Not

to worry. I just scraped up the leaked cheese with the balls and plopped it all in a bowl together. Nary a wasted bit.

ARMADILLO EGGS 2 pounds sausage (recommended: Italian) removed from casing 6 jalapenos 1 block cream cheese 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro 1 teaspoon cumin 1 teaspoon garlic powder 1 teaspoon chili powder Salt and pepper

I also whipped up a little cooling dipping sauce, easy peasy. Because the meat and cheese alone are just. Not. Enough.

DIPPING SAUCE 2 tablespoons milk 2 tablespoons mayo 2 tablespoons sour cream 1 tablespoons lime juice 1 clove garlic, minced 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro 1 tablespoons dried Ranch mix Salt and pepper

Now my husband is a true football fan, so I sent him off to watch the game unencumbered by a baby and a bored wife. And for his fellow fans, I sent our favorite shrimp appetizer, made famous by my prior roommate and bastardized beyond recognition by myself. It’s so easy, it’s embarrassing. But it’s delicious and pretty and puts on a more sophisticated show than the balls o’ meat and cheese I took to my food fest.

CONFETTI SHRIMP 2 pounds largish shrimp, peeled and deveined 2 jalapenos 1/2 green pepper 1/2 red pepper 1/4 cup chopped red onion 1/4 cup lime juice (divided) 2 cloves garlic 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes 2 tablespoon olive oil

2 tablespoon juice from a jar of pickled jalapenos 1/4 cups cilantro (divided) Dash of garlic powder salt and pepper

Marinate the peeled shrimp in half the lime juice, the olive oil, red pepper flakes, one minced clove of garlic, the jalapeno juice, one diced fresh jalapeno, half the cilantro, salt and pepper for at least an hour, but not more than three hours. In the meantime, dice up your red and green pepper, the onion, the second jalapeno, the other clove of garlic and the rest of the cilantro. Then pour the shrimp and the marinade into a skillet and saute over medium heat until all the shrimp are pink. Do not overcook them! When they turn pink, remove them immediately from the heat. With a slotted spoon, remove the shrimp from the saute pan and put them in your serving dish. Add the fresh ingredients, and dust everything with salt, pepper, a tiny bit of garlic powder and a couple of squeezes of lime juice. Chill and serve.

AT HOME Set the mood for Valentine’s Day without leaving the house By Sarah Henning sarah@lawrence.com

Valentine’s Day is supposed to be one of the romantic days of the year. Dinner. Chocolate. Romance. Right? Sure. But it also falls on a Monday this fine 2011, probably the least romantic day of the week. Mondays come with the stress of the workweek, the usual “school night” routine and the promise of Tuesday just hours away. Take all those painful little non-romantic arrows and sharpen them with frigid temperatures, mounds of graying snow and the sure-fire date night crowds, and no one would blame you for wanting to celebrate your love from your kitchen table this Valentine’s Day. But fear not, would-be romantics, we’re going to make it easy on you. We talked with experts about style and sustenance and how to make an at-home Valentine’s dinner feel different than an everyday eat-and-run with kids and/or obligations. Absorb their hints, take them to heart and let out your inner romantic.

Set the mood Style and color. The best way to add drama or a

bit of passion to a space you see every day — i.e., your dining room — is to change things up a bit with color, says Scott Wisdom, designer/buyer for House Parts, 714 Mass. He says that one of the most romantic things you could do is to paint a wall of the room temporarily. While, yes, you’d probably have to repaint it afterward, a new red wall would definitely add some romantic oomph. Not one for painting? You could go the less messy route of buying new table linens or chair slip covers in a special color or texture, he says. Don’t forget lighting. You know how you can spot a romantic restaurant on the street simply by catching a look at the dim lighting? It’s not just a trick for outsiders. The right lighting can make even the most common rooms seem extraordinary (and make you look equally as good), says Wisdom. He suggests using candles in the same color but different sizes as a centerpiece for your Valentine’s table. That way, he says, you can add a nice glow without resorting to staid candlesticks. Another option? Putting floating candles (or the newer LED floating “candles”) in a pretty bowl. Consider a change of venue. Kansas City private chef Paige Vandegrift suggests that, if you can pull it

Changing your dining location to the bedroom can give you that feeling of being in a hotel and ordering fancy room service. Avoid being cliché or cheesy.

Super Bowl just an excuse for great eats It

is no secret that I only pretend to enjoy sports for the party aspect. I religiously attend tailgate parties, wherein I bring food, wear the appropriate colors and even stare blankly at the TV screen that is set up under the canopy for those who do not have tickets to the game. I cheer when the others cheer. Sometimes, I even attend a sporting event in real life. I have been to several Royals games, two Chiefs games, and countless KU football and basketball games. I was a high school cheerleader, for

“THE FLYING FORK”

a blog by Megan Stuke crying out loud. But really, people, to this day, I wouldn’t know an onside kick if it nailed me in my big, old, gaping maw. Because, you see, for me, it’s

about food. And fellowship, of course. But really, food. If I am going to sit through a football game, there damn well better be a hotdog being crammed into my mouth. And what is tailgating except an excuse to drink beer in the daylight (before noon, even!) and eat barbeque? People, I have not missed a Super Bowl watch party since 1986. I have “watched” every Super Bowl, every year, since I was old enough to find a friend with a TV and a couch who would invite me and my bag of chips over.

And yet, I am hard-pressed to remember a single game, a single winner, a single exciting play. Some people remember the commercials or the halftime show. And of course, there are the standouts in that category, like the old wardrobe malfunction and the Bud-Weis-Er frogs of yore. But for me, it’s the food. For years, I pretended to care about the game. I didn’t want my date or my friends to know that I didn’t even know who was in the Super Bowl before I walked into the room and saw what people were

wearing. I didn’t want them to know that I didn’t know what a tight end did and I didn’t want to appear bored with the game, even though I found every excuse possible to wander around the kitchen or start up a game of chicken scratch during the party. But this year, all that changed. This year, I found Super Bowl Nirvana. Lindsey and I came clean. Neither of us could give a half a flip about the game. For us, it is about Please see CHEESE, page 7B

I did it for my daughter-in-law, my granddaughter and our family. We are still close, and my granddaughter stays with me quite a bit. Had I made enemies with my daughter-in-law when they separated, I may not have had the chance to anniesmailbox@creators.com spend so much time with my about Claire, simply say, son’s daughter.

A cautionary tale disguised as a sitcom, “Mr. Sunshine” (8:30 p.m., ABC) brings Matthew Perry back to prime time. He’s Ben Donovan, the manager of a sports arena in sunny San Diego, a playpen where anything can happen and often does. It has taken Ben 40 years to realize that he lacks social graces and friends. He’s carrying on a noncommittal affair with his marketing director, Alice (Andrea Anders), but everyone knows that she wants more. His boss, Crystal (Allison Janney), the owner of the arena, is even more selfabsorbed than Ben, an affliction cushioned by an ample supply of money and pills. If this all sounds rather disagreeable and dull, it’s because it is. And the unpleasantness is only heightened by the show’s pretentious sense of slapstick. Both Perry (“Studio 60”) and Janney (“The West Wing”) are veterans of the Aaron Sorkin school of hourlong dramady. “Sunshine” tries to shoehorn that style and rat-a-tat-tat screwball-comedy dialogue into a half-hour format.

1 of biggest protests yet comes after man freed Obama to call for EGYPTIAN ANTIMUBARAK PROTESTERS take part in a demonstration at Tahrir square in Cairo on Tuesday. Protesters appear to have settled in for a long standoff, turning Tahrir Square into a makeshift village with tens of thousands coming every day.

By Sarah El Deep and Maggie Michael Associated Press Writers

CAIRO — A young Google executive who helped ignite Egypt’s uprising energized a cheering crowd of hundreds of thousands Tuesday with his first appearance in their midst after being released from 12 days in secret detention. “We won’t give up,” he promised at one of the biggest protests yet in Cairo’s Tahrir Square. Once a behind-the-scenes Internet activist, 30-year-old Wael Ghonim has emerged as an inspiring voice for a movement that has taken pride in being a leaderless “people’s revolution.” Now, the various activists behind it — including Ghonim — are working to coalesce into representatives to push their demands for President Hosni Mubarak’s ouster. With protests invigorated, Vice President Omar Suleiman issued a sharply worded warning, saying of the protests in Tahrir, “We can’t bear this for a long time, and there must be an end to this crisis as soon as possible,” in a sign of growing impatience with 16 days of mass demonstrations. For the first time, protesters made a foray to Parliament, several blocks away from their camp in the square. Several hundred marched to the legislature and chanted for it to be dissolved. In Tahrir, the massive, shoulder-to-shoulder crowd’s ranks swelled with new blood, including thousands of university professors and lawyers who marched in together as organizers worked to draw in professional unions. The crowd rivaled the biggest demonstration so far, a week ago, that drew a quarter-million people. Some said they were inspired to turn out by an emotional television interview Ghonim gave Monday night just after his release from detention. He sobbed over those who have been killed in two weeks of clashes and insisted, “We love Egypt ... and we have rights.” “I cried,” a 33-year-old upper-class housewife, Fifi Shawqi, said of the interview with Ghonim, who she’d never heard of before the TV

GOP leader calls for stop to radical Islam By David Espo Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON — A top House Republican said Tuesday the primary goal of U.S. policy in Egypt should be to “stop the spread of radical Islam,” an objective that has been little mentioned by Obama administration officials in recent weeks. Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., also said at a news conference he hopes the street protests taking place in Cairo and elsewhere will lead to a democratic society that “stands for human rights, progress and equal appearance. She came to the Tahrir protest for the first time, bringing her three daughters and her sister. “I felt like he is my son and all the youth here are my sons.” Tuesday’s huge turnout gave a resounding answer to the question of whether the protesters still have momentum even though two weeks of steadfast pressure have not achieved their goal of ousting 82-year-old Mubarak, Egypt’s authoritarian leader for nearly three decades. Suleiman rejected any departure for Mubarak or “end to the regime. He told a gathering of newspaper editors that the regime prefers to deal with the crisis using dialogue, adding, “We don’t want to deal

opportunity.” In his remarks, Cantor did not criticize President Barack Obama over his handling of the two-week crisis. GOP leaders have privately urged members of the rank and file not to second-guess Obama’s approach to the crisis. Asked about criticism leveled recently by another Republican lawmaker, Cantor said, it would not be “helpful for this president, who is having a tough enough time as it is, to have 535 members of Congress to opine on his conduct of foreign policy.” with Egyptian society with police tools.” He warned that the alternative to dialogue was “a coup” — a possible hint of an imposition of military rule. However, editors present at the meeting said he then explained he didn’t mean a military coup but that “a force that is unprepared for rule” could overturn state institutions. U.S. Vice President Joe Biden spoke by phone with Suleiman, saying Washington wants Egypt to immediately rescind emergency laws that give broad powers to security forces — a key demand of the protesters. Ghonim’s reappearance gave a clearer picture of the stunning trajectory of the

Experts: Speaking in acronyms, abbreviations predates Internet “

By Jocelyn Noveck

People have been complaining about what the kids are doing to the language since ancient times, — “ILY!” Susan and Latin. Language is always changing.”

Associated Press Writer

NEW YORK Maushart’s 16-year-old daughter often calls out over her shoulder as she leaves the house. Sure, actual words would be better. But Mom knows not to complain. “A mother of teenagers is pathetically grateful for an ‘I love you’ no matter what form it takes,” she observes. Then there are the various forms of “LOL” that her teens use in regular parlance — it’s become a conjugable verb by now. And of course, there’s the saltier acronym used by son Bill: “WTF, Mom?!” But before you judge, note that former VP candidate Sarah Palin just used that one in a TV interview. Acronyms have been around for years. But with the advent of text and Twitterlanguage, it certainly feels like we’re speaking in groups of capital letters a lot more. It’s a question that intrigues linguists and other language aficionados — even though they’ll tell you they have absolutely no concrete research on it. “It’s fascinating,” says Scott Kiesling, a socio-linguist and professor at the University of Pittsburgh. “What’s interesting to me as a linguist is figuring out which words get picked up, and why. What is it that makes OMG and WTF and LOL so useful that they spread from the written to the spoken form?” One possibility, Kiesling proposes, is that some of these acronyms actually become a whole new thought, expressing something different than the words that form them. For example: “You wouldn’t say, ‘OMG, that person just

— Robert Lane Greene, author of “You Are What You Speak” jumped off a cliff,’” he explains. “But you’d say, ‘OMG, do you see those red pants that person is wearing?’” Which brings us to WTF, an acronym that needs no translation. When Palin used the expression recently in a Fox News interview — twice in two sentences, actually — some pundits were a little shocked. (Palin was playing on the president’s “Win the Future” message in his State of the Union speech.) “That’s going to be a tough one for her to come back from and explain,” remarked conservative commentator Pat Buchanan on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” It can also be a good icebreaker with an audience. “I do a lot of public speaking,” says Maushart, the mother of three, who is also an author (the recent “Winter of our Disconnect”). “And if there is one utterance that I always know will get a laugh, it is WTF. It establishes that you are kind of with it. It brings an instant laugh.” All this delights Robert Lane Greene, author of the upcoming book “You Are What You Speak” and a selfdescribed linguistics nut. Greene doesn’t buy in to the concern that kids are destroying our language. “People often think the language THEY learned was perfect,” he says. “But innovation is generally enriching. It’s fascinating, if you don’t pull your hair out over it.” So just how new is the use

of acronyms? Did this all come from Internet speak, texting and the like? “Americans have always liked abbreviations,” says linguistics professor and author Deborah Tannen, author of several popular books on language. “That certainly predates the Internet.” In fact, acronyms date back to ancient times, Greene points out — the Romans and the Greeks used them. In the United States, they came into prominence in the early 20th century with the New Deal, the series of economic programs passed during the f irst term of Franklin D. Roosevelt — who, of course, became known by his three initials. They are widely used in the military and today’s government bureaucracy. People who think acronyms are new may be suffering from what linguists call a “recency illusion” — the illusion that something is new merely because one has just noticed it. But one thing that does seem genuinely new, Greene says, “is that these three-letter phrases from the Internet and Twitter-speak are being spoken out loud.” And so, maybe you CAN blame the kids for that. However, Greene notes, “People have been complaining about what the kids are doing to the language since ancient times, and Latin. Language is always changing. It’s a fact of life.”

protests, which swelled from the online organizing of small Internet activist groups into the first and greatest mass challenge ever to Mubarak’s rule. Ghonim is an Egyptian who oversees Google Inc.’s marketing in the Middle East and Africa from Dubai, one of the United Arab Emirates. He vanished two days after the protests began on Jan. 25, snatched off the street by security forces and hustled to a secret location. Earlier this year, Ghonim — anonymously — launched a Facebook page commemorating Khaled Said, a 28-yearold businessman in Alexandria who was beaten to death by two policemen in June. The page became a rallying point for a campaign against police brutality, with hundreds of thousands joining. For many Egyptians, it was the first time to learn details of the extent of widespread torture in their own country. Small-scale protests over Said’s death took place for months. The Khaled Said group worked online with other activists, including the April 6 movement named after the date of 2008 labor protests and the campaign of Nobel Peace laureate and democracy advocate Mohamed ElBaradei. Together they decided to hold a larger gathering on Jan. 25, announced on Ghonim’s page, to coincide with Police Day, a state holiday honoring security forces.

$53B to invest in high-speed rail

By Julie Pace

We cannot compromise. The rest of the world is not — President compromising.”

Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON Barack Obama is calling for a six-year, $53 billion spending plan for high-speed rail, as he seeks to use infrastructure spending to jump-start job creation. An initial $8 billion in spending will be part of the budget plan Obama is set to release Monday. If Congress approves the plan, the money would go toward developing or improving trains that travel up to 250 mph, and connecting existing rail lines to new projects. The White House wouldn’t say where the money for the rest of the program would come from, though it’s likely Obama would seek funding in future budgets or transportation bills. Obama’s push for highspeed rail spending is part of his broad goal of creating jobs in the short-term and increasing American competitiveness for the future through new funding for infrastructure, education and innovation. During last month’s State of the Union address, Obama said he wanted to give 80 percent of Americans access to high-speed rail within 25 years. At the same time he’s calling for new spending on sectors like high-speed rail in the upcoming budget, Obama also has pledged to cut overall spending as he seeks to bring down the nation’s mounting deficit. The White House has said environmental programs for the Great Lakes, and block grants for community service and community development are among the programs that will face cuts. But it’s unlikely the cuts Obama proposes in the budget will be enough to appease the GOP. Republicans now controlling the House have promised to slash domestic agencies’ budgets by nearly 20 percent for the coming year. The White House has said

— Vice President Joe Biden, announcing the high-speed rail initiative cuts must be cautious, arguing that drastic reductions in spending could cause the still-fragile economic recovery to stall. Vice President Joe Biden said Tuesday the administration wouldn’t compromise when it comes to spending on the infrastructure, education and innovation programs Obama is touting. “We cannot compromise. The rest of the world is not compromising,” Biden said in Philadelphia at an event announcing the high-speed rail initiative. Obama’s call for increased spending on high-speed rail projects is nothing new. He’s long seen the sector as an area of opportunity for creating jobs and improving the nation’s transportation system. His administration awarded $10 billion in federal grants for high-speed rail projects last year, including $2.3 billion for California to begin work on an 800-milelong, high-speed rail line tying Sacramento and the San Francisco Bay area to Los Angeles and San Diego; and $1.25 billion to Florida to build a rail line connecting Tampa on the West Coast with Orlando in the middle of the state, eventually going south to Miami. Obama also laid out a plan last summer to invest $50 billion in high-speed rail, as well as highways, bridges, transit and airports, adding it to the first year of a six-year transportation bill. Congress didn’t act on the proposal before adjourning last year, but Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood said he’s confident lawmakers will take up the measure again and deliver a bill to Obama by August.

Some of the acceleration cases could have been caused by mechanical defects — sticking accelerator pedals and gas pedals that can become trapped in floor mats — that have been dealt with in recalls, the government said. And in some cases, investigators suggested, drivers simply hit the gas when they meant to press the brake.

Job openings fall for second straight month By Christopher S. Rugaber Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON — Employers posted fewer job openings in December, the second straight month of declines. That’s a sign hiring is still weak even as the economy is gaining strength. The Labor Department said Tuesday that employers advertised nearly 3.1 million jobs that month, a drop of almost 140,000 from November. That’s the lowest total since September. Openings have risen by more than 700,000 since they bottomed out in July 2009, one month after the recession ended. That’s an increase of 31 percent. But they are still far below the 4.4 million available jobs that were advertised in December 2007, when the recession began. Th e f i g u re s fo l l ow a mixed jobs report released last week, which showed the u n e m p l oy m e n t rate fe l l sharply to 9 percent in January from 9.4 percent the previous month. But it also found that employers added a net total of only 36,000 jobs, far below what’s needed to consistently reduce

unemployment. There are far more unemployed people than there are job openings. Nearly 14.5 million people were out of work in December. As a result, on average there were 4.7 people competing for each available job. That’s below the ratio of 6.3, reached in November 2009, the highest since the department began tracking job openings in 2000. But in a healthy economy, the ratio would fall to roughly 2, economists say. The department’s report, known as the Job Openings and Labor Turnover survey, or JOLTS, counts number of jobs advertised on the last business day of the month. The figures are for December, but economists say the report provides an indication of future hiring patterns because it can take several months to fill many jobs. Job openings dropped sharply in professional and business services, a category that includes temporary help agencies. They also fell in construction, manufacturing, and in education and health services. Job openings rose in trade, transportation and utilities, and in retail.
