Lawrence city commissioners are ready to strike a deal to bring a citywide curbside recycling service to Lawrence — and a more convenient way for residents to get rid of all those empty glass bottles. On Tuesday, commissioners unanimously agreed to begin negotiating with Perry-based Hamm Companies on a deal that would allow the company to build a multimillion-dollar recycling processing facility that would serve a new city-run curbside recycling service. Based on proposals received CITY from Hamm, the city expects COMMISSION the new program to add about $2.80 to $3 per month for every-other-week service, which will include glass as part of the curbside recycling service. “We have such a reputation in Lawrence of being such a progressive community, but when people hear we don’t have a universal curbside recycling program, they are amazed by that,” City Commissioner Aron Cromwell said. Lawrence residents will have to wait a bit longer for curbside service, assuming Please see RECYCLING, page 2A

Rooks, along with other parents and several disability advocacy groups, urged the state board to put stricter regulations in place, including a provision that gives the Kansas Department of Education a direct role in enforcing those regulations.

Leaky pipes and a growing city may end up costing the average Lawrence homeowner about $500 in extra water and sewer bills over the next five years. Lawrence city commissioners got the full pitch Tuesday afternoon for why water and sewer rates ought to rise to fix aging pipes and to build a new sewage treatment plant south of the Wakarusa River. Commissioners didn’t agree to any new rates, but kept the issue of a rate increase alive by asking staff members to bring back additional information in the coming weeks. “We have some facilities that are just worn out, or out of space,” Mayor Bob Schumm said. Two large projects stand out in the plan proposed by city staff members: construction of a $54.7 million sewage treatment plant along the Wakarusa River south of Lawrence; and $19.4 million to fix deteriorating sewer pipes. Work on the second sewage treatment plant would begin immediately in order for the plant to be operational in the next

Hearing airs concerns over at-risk funding TOPEKA (AP) — School officials voiced opposition Tuesday to a Senate bill that would change the way Kansas has distributed funds for at-risk students for more than 20 years. Administrators and education lobbyists told the Senate Education Committee that the state’s current definition for at-risk students works because it involves income. They said students from lowincome families traditionally struggle academically because they come to school with fewer skills. Under the Senate proposal, schools would continue to receive the at-risk funding for kindergarten through third-graders who qualify for government subsidized school meals. However, the additional funds for fourth- through 12th-graders would be determined based on student test scores. According to a letter from the state’s Division of Budget, the change in the formula would result in a savings of $106 million in at-risk spending that could be redirected to other education line items or returned to the state general fund for other governmental programs. Diane Gjerstad, lobbyist for the Wichita school district, said the district is faced with a growing

number of students living in poverty, including some 1,900 who are homeless and lack the resources and support to come to school prepared to learn. The district uses its at-risk funds to provide additional tutoring programs for these students, including weekends and evenings, to raise their performance levels so they can keep up with their peers, she said. But supporters say the change would allow for a better use of resources and reach all struggling students. Walt Chappell, a former State Board of Education member and Wichita consultant, said basing funding on a student’s family income has little to do with the child’s ability to learn. “This is an artificial measure which greatly inflates the budgets of school districts with large numbers of low-income families,� he said.

negotiations progress with Hamm. State law requires the city to wait 18 months before starting a service in order to give private haulers in the area time to adjust. As proposed, the citywide service would be a mandatory pay but voluntary participation program. That means all residential customers in the city would have the recycling fee added to their monthly bills, regardless of whether they choose to use the service. The proposal also calls for city sanitation crews to pick up the curbside recycling, while Hamm Companies will handle the processing of the materials. The city received proposals from two other companies — Kansas City’s


five years. Work on the sewer line project would take place over the next eight years, and the city proposes a host of other maintenance projects. But commissioners were told Tuesday the projects can’t happen without a significant increase in rates. City officials are estimating the recommended plan will cause the average summer water bill for an average household to increase by about 6.5 percent, or about $4.40 per month. Staff members, though, told commissioners rate increases will be needed in each of the next five years to pay for the program. The city estimates an average 4,000-gallon-per-month water user would see the average monthly water bill increase by $13.66 per month at the end of the five year period. During the course of the five-year period, the city estimates such a household would pay an extra $453 for water and sewer compared to the rates remaining unchanged. City staff members told commissioners there


“These (proposed) regulations are far weaker than laws in several other states,� said Rocky Nichols, executive director of the Disability Rights Center of Kansas. But officials with the Department of Education said that even though the proposed regulations do not specifically spell out an enforcement role for the state, families would still have the right to appeal grievances to the state through due process and formal complaint procedures already in place. As currently drafted, the proposed regulations would prohibit school officials from using seclusion or certain kinds of physical restraint unless a student presents “an immediate danger to self or others.� In addition, every district would be required to adopt written policies that conform to the regulations, including requirements for training for the use of “emergency safety interventions,� and a procedure that would allow parents to file written complaints with the local board of education.


Deffenbaugh Industries and Topeka’s Waste Management — that would have had private crews collect the recycling and process the materials. Both companies offered proposals that potentially could have produced lower monthly rates than Hamm, but city commissioners said they liked the idea of Hamm building a new processing center on a site just outside of North Lawrence near the Douglas-Leavenworth County line. The facility is expected to employ 15 to 20 people. “Adding jobs in this town is a very important factor,� City Commissioner Hugh Carter said. Deffenbaugh Industries currently operates a large curbside recycling service in the city. Deffenbaugh officials made a proposal on Tuesday to offer the city a lower rate to begin accepting not only its recycling but also its trash, which would be dumped

at the company’s Kansas City, Kan. landfill. Currently, the city uses Hamm Companies’ landfill in Jefferson County. Deffenbaugh proposed building a transfer station in Lawrence where city crews could deliver the trash and Deffenbaugh crews would transport it to the Kansas City landfill. Deffenbaugh officials estimated the new dumping arrangement could save the city $250,000 to $500,000 per year in fuel, maintenance and tipping fees. City officials, however, said they hadn’t fully analyzed the proposal and it received little discussion from commissioners on Tuesday. Negotiations with Hamm are expected to occur over the next several weeks. Commissioners will have to approve any final contracts.

were risks if the city didn’t make the improvements, particularly the sewage treatment plant. City Manager David Corliss said the sewage treatment plant — which would be built just south of the Wakarusa River, roughly across the river from where O’Connell Road dead ends — would meet three important needs: It would give the city greater capacity to handle wet weather storm flows that come through the plant; it would relieve a bottleneck of sewage that accumulates in holding basins and pipes in the 31st Street corridor; and it would give the city more capacity to add homes and businesses in future years. “If we grow our population by 1.5 percent per year, we believe we’ll be out of capacity by the end of the decade,� Corliss said. Commissioners have struggled with the idea of how much the city has been growing. During the last decade, the Census Bureau found the city grew by less than 1 percent per year, but some city planning estimates have contended the growth rate was higher. On Tuesday, commissioners asked staff members for more information

about how much of the projected costs of the proposed plan are related to addressing existing conditions versus those related to accommodating new growth. Commissioners also will need to decide whether they want to try to add equipment that would address occasional taste and odor issues that arise in the city’s drinking water when algae levels are high at Clinton Lake or the Kansas River. The necessary equipment — estimated at about $18 million — isn’t included in the staff’s recommended plan. But Corliss said it could easily be added to the plan if a future study shows it would be effective. But the additions would require additional rate increases. If the taste and odor equipment is added to staff’s recommended plan the total increase in water and sewer bills over a five-year period would be about $520 for an average home. Schumm said he would like the current City Commission to deal with the water and sewer rate issue before the upcoming city elections in April. “It will be up for debate sometime in March, I believe,� Schumm said.

Department officials will present formal responses today to comments made during Tuesday’s public hearing. At that point, the state board will decide whether to adopt the proposed regulations as written, to make minor changes to the document, or send them back to the staff for major revisions. In other business, the state board:

 Heard a report by Education Commissioner Diane DeBacker that the department will work with the Kansas Highway Patrol to offer “active shooter training� programs for superintendents and other school officials. That term refers to dealing with “anybody who

has the intent of killing lots of people at one time,� DeBacker said, whether it is with a gun, bomb or any other weapon. Details of the training program are still being developed.

 Approved changes to state accreditation standards that mirror the state’s waiver from the federal No Child Left Behind law. The changes mean schools will not have to meet targets for “adequate yearly progress� on reading and math tests to be accredited. Instead, they will have to meet the new standards that measure school performance across four “annual measurable objectives� that will be developed individually for each school.

professor and vice chairman of the Medical Centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department of Otolaryngology and Head and Neck Surgery. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the department Girod led for more than 12 years, starting in an interim capacity, before he became KUMC executive vice chancellor Feb. 1. Girod, an Oregon native who worked for a while in Silicon Valley in the 1970s before the advent of personal computers, earned his medical degree at the University of California at San Francisco. He settled on his specialty â&#x20AC;&#x201D; surgery for cancers of the head and neck â&#x20AC;&#x201D; because of the challenge and the nature of it, he said in an interview during his first full week in his new position. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so impactful on people,â&#x20AC;? Girod said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It affects their appearance. It affects their ability to eat, swallow, talk.â&#x20AC;? After service in the Navy following his school and residencies, he came to KU in 1994. By 2000 he was leading the otolaryngology (ear, nose and throat) department. Under his leadership, Tsue said, the department was transformed. It has four times the faculty members, a nationally recognized cancer treatment program that didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exist before Girodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s arrival, and a new international mission program for students, residents and faculty. Formerly unranked, KU Hospital is now ranked 20th on the U.S. News and World Report â&#x20AC;&#x153;Best Hospitalsâ&#x20AC;? list for ear, nose and throat treatment. And it would rank higher, Tsue said, if the rest of the country were aware of how much patient care has improved. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a pretty phenomenal leader,â&#x20AC;? Tsue said. Kirk Benson, a KUMC professor in the anesthesiology department, has



worked with Girod everywhere from the operating room at KU Hospital to the leadership of KU Physicians Inc., the group that oversees School of Medicine faculty medical practices. Benson is the president, and Girod has served on its board and interacted with it in the administrative role he held for five years in the School of Medicine, senior associate dean for clinical affairs. And whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s with patients, nurses or fellow board members, Girod interacts the same way with everyone, Benson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Anyone you talk to, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to get the same thing: that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a wonderful gentleman to be around,â&#x20AC;? Benson said. Girod says forming strong relationships will be important for reaching the goals heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s set: to achieve a top-25 ranking for the School of Medicine in the U.S. News rankings, as well as a top-25 spot in National Institutes of Health funding. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sort of trying to maintain what I think has just been an outstanding trajectory the Medical Center has had for the last decade,â&#x20AC;? Girod said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and maintaining that trajectory at a time of really significant fiscal constraint, but at the state level and the national level.â&#x20AC;? Students in the campusâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s three schools â&#x20AC;&#x201D; medicine, nursing and health professions â&#x20AC;&#x201D; need to learn together rather than apart, he said. Key to that will be a proposed new health education building, toward which Gov. Sam Brownback has recommended $10 million in funding and $35 million in bonding authority. The best way to educate students is no longer through classroom lectures, Girod said, and the new facility would allow for simulation technology that will allow those different students to rub shoulders. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really keep training doctors in one building and nurses in another building and health

professions in another building and then throw them all in the hospital and say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;You guys go work as a team,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153; Girod said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It just doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make sense.â&#x20AC;? The promise of the new building, he said, will be important for one of his most pressing first tasks: to prepare for the hopeful renewal of the School of Medicineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s accreditation by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education, which is scheduled to visit in October. Another immediate task is the search for a dean for the School of Medicine, and Girod had already started work this past week, he said. The separation of that job â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Barbara Atkinson, his predecessor, served in both positions â&#x20AC;&#x201D; will help him focus on making connections on the campus and externally, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so much that needs to be done to accomplish what we need to accomplish,â&#x20AC;? Girod said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really too much for one person to effectively do all of it.â&#x20AC;? He hopes to have a dean in place within six months, he said â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a speedy timeline by the standards of academia. Girod said he wants to build further national and international connections, relationships with other medical institutions in the area and cooperation among the Medical Center, the KU Hospital and the physiciansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; practices. Such connections create more opportunities for education and research, he said. And all three of the campusâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; schools will be working to fill current and future health care shortages in rural Kansas, he said. Girod believes things can continue to improve. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I see opportunity everywhere,â&#x20AC;? he said. Tsue and Benson, his colleagues, agreed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one to challenge the status quo in a positive way,â&#x20AC;? Benson said. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Kansas University reporter Matt Erickson can be reached at 832-6388. Follow him at

That included making on the commission helped a run at one of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s him realize the impor-

You have to have the humility to realize you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know everything. Sometimes your preconceived notions get challenged and sometimes you have to step back and admit thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a really good idea.â&#x20AC;?

Issues Chestnut said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll continue to stress that the city commission should spend a lot of its time crafting fiscally responsible budgets. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The way you allocate resources really defines your priorities as a community,â&#x20AC;? Chestnut said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the things I want to ensure in the next term is that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re allocating enough funding for our core services: police, fire, solid waste, water and wastewater.â&#x20AC;? On other issues, Chestnut said:

He would like the city to develop a better system to rate and prioritize the replacement of aging waterlines in the city.

 He wants to have a community discussion about what facilities may be needed for the Police Department, which currently operates out of two facilities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know if the needs are $30 million, but something needs to be reviewed to come up with a plan to help them,â&#x20AC;? Chestnut said. A Feb. 26 primary will narrow the field of 11 city commission candidates to six. The general election â&#x20AC;&#x201D; where the top three vote winners will take a seat on the commission â&#x20AC;&#x201D; will be April 2. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362.

â&#x20AC;˘ A 20-year-old Kansas University student was charged Tuesday with aggravated sexual battery, among other offenses, in connection with an alleged sexual assault at Oliver Hall dormitory. The male student was arrested Monday afternoon at Oliver Hall by KU Public Safety officers who were investigating an incident reported to have happened over the weekend, said KU Public Safety Capt. Schuyler Bailey. Bailey said the alleged victim, a 19-year-old KU student, and the student who was arrested were acquaintances. The student who was arrested was booked into the Douglas County Jail about 4:30 p.m. Monday and appeared in Douglas County District Court on Tuesday afternoon via video from the jail. Douglas County prosecutors have charged him with aggravated sexual battery and aggravated burglary; each charge carries a penalty ranging from probation to more than 11 years in prison, depending on a personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s criminal history.

of one year in jail and a $2,500 fine. Judge Pro Tem James George set bond at $20,000 with the condition that the defendant not return to the building where the alleged victim lives without notifying campus police. The defendant is scheduled to appear in court Feb. 11. The Journal-World generally does not identify sexcrime suspects unless they are convicted. â&#x20AC;˘ A high-speed chase on U.S. Highway 24 from Topeka to Jefferson County on Tuesday morning ended with a suspectâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vehicle on fire in a field about four miles northeast of Perry. Kansas Highway Patrol troopers arrested the driver, Kyle E. Pearson, 26, near his disabled vehicle about 9:45 a.m. He was booked into Jefferson County Jail on suspicion of aggravated assault. The incident began on Highway 24, east of Topeka, when a trooper tried to stop a black Chevy pickup truck for obscured tags and tail lights and possibly illegal window tinting about 9 a.m. Tuesday, according to the patrol. The driver refused to stop and led troopers on a 100 mph chase east on Highway 24 into Jefferson County, the patrol said, though troopers slowed

while passing by towns such as Grantville and Perry. The highway patrol notified railroad officials to stop trains in the area and alerted Perry-Lecompton High School, said Donald Hughes, a highway patrol spokesman. Jefferson County sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deputies joined the pursuit and used stop sticks to try to halt the truck. The truck avoided those obstacles and was severely damaged as it went off the highway several times into fields, striking various objects in its path, Jefferson County Sheriff Jeff Herrig said. The truck eventually caught and burned completely. Fire crews responded to the scene and put out the truck fire, and an ambulance was called as a precaution. Herrig said no one appeared to have been injured in the incident.

Terry Bruce, a conservative Hutchinson Republican who serves on the tax committee, said many GOP senators didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to end two big tax breaks for homeowners at once. Bruce, other legislators and groups watching the debate over Brownbackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan acknowledged that work on tax legislation is just beginning. The final version is likely to emerge from negotiations this spring between the House and Senate after each approves its own measure. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This just kicks the can down the road,â&#x20AC;? said Luke Bell, a vice president and lobbyist for the Kansas Association of Realtors, which strongly opposed Brownbackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposals to eliminate the tax breaks for homeowners. Bellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s group continues to push hard to save both tax breaks. The Realtorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; association scheduled a Statehouse rally for this

morning and said it would spend the afternoon lobbying lawmakers. About 372,000 individual income tax filers claim the deduction for the property taxes on their homes, according to the state Department of Revenue. About 315,000 take advantage of the home mortgage interest deduction. Brownback is pitching his package of proposals as a five-year plan to put the state on a â&#x20AC;&#x153;glide path to zeroâ&#x20AC;? when it comes to individual income taxes. Revenue Secretary Nick Jordan, who attended the committeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meeting, said the governor remains flexible about how to accomplish the goal while stabilizing the budget. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We think the Senate has made a good move,â&#x20AC;? Jordan said after the committeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meeting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see how it progresses from here, but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re very, very pleased.â&#x20AC;?

$10M in cuts to KU budget recommended By Scott Rothschild

TOPEKA â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A Senate budget subcommittee on Tuesday recommended a $10 million cut in Kansas Universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposed budget and a sweeping audit of the school. And one member of the subcommittee, Sen. Caryn Tyson, R-Parker, said she had concerns about student leaders from public universities who were â&#x20AC;&#x153;regurgitatingâ&#x20AC;? talking points given them by the Kansas Board of Regents. The students were in the Statehouse on Monday to talk with legislators about higher education issues. Tyson said in her conversation with the students, they brought up the regentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; position in favor of in-state tuition for the children of some undocumented workers, as well as opposition to concealed carry of guns on campuses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I want to be lobbied by the Board of Regents, I can go talk to them. I want to hear what the studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; concerns are, what their actual experiences are,â&#x20AC;? Tyson said. Zach George, the government relations director for the KU Student Senate, helped organize Higher Education Day, when approximately 150 students from across the state met with legislators.

George said student budget recommendations leaders worked for wisely reflect the need months on what issues to our state has for additional talk to legislators about. doctors and we hope at the He said he resented Tyson end of the day the majority saying that the students of Kansas legislators will were parroting what the agree it is a wise investregents wanted. ment in Kansansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; health.â&#x20AC;?

Expert shares insights on serial sex offenders By Shaun Hittle


Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re stopping a one-man crime The Douglas County wave.â&#x20AC;?

court system is routinely flooded with sex crime cases involving suspects with no criminal record. But that provides a clue about how serial sex offenders can navigate society without coming into contact with the criminal justice system, said David Lisak, a forensic psychologist who led a training session in Topeka this week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What we find is career serial offenders who started in adolescence,â&#x20AC;? said Lisak, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s conducted extensive research on serial sex offenders. Those who do eventually get caught up in the criminal justice system typically have scores of other victims from unreported crimes, he said. Lisak, a psychology professor at the University of Massachusetts Boston, spoke to about 200 advocates, police officers, investigators and others from the criminal justice system Tuesday as part of the Kansas Coalition against Sexual and Domestic Violenceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual â&#x20AC;&#x153;Safe Homes, Safe Streetsâ&#x20AC;? program. Representatives from local agencies such as GaDuGi Safe Center and Willow Domestic Violence Cen-

â&#x20AC;&#x201D; David Lisak, forensic psychologist ter were among those in attendance. Lisakâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s training sought to dispel a variety of myths about sexual violence, including sexual offenders in college communities. In recent months, several students at local colleges have been arrested for sex crimes where alcohol was a factor. Lisak cautioned against the idea that such offenders are those who made a one-time mistake influenced by drugs or alcohol. While he couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t speak specifically about any one case, Lisak said his research shows such offenders often engage in a period of sex offenses spanning years. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important for advocates and those in the criminal justice system to stop offenders the first time such behavior is reported. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re stopping a oneman crime wave,â&#x20AC;? Lisak said. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Reporter Shaun Hittle can be reached at 832-7173. Follow him at shaunhittle.

KU has made construction of the $75 million health education and training facility at the KU Medical Center in Kansas City, Kan., a major priority. Construction of the building is part of KUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s initiative to increase the number of physicians trained in Kansas. KU had wanted the state to release $25 million that was returned from the federal government as part of a FICA refund related to payroll taxes paid back in the 1990s. In his budget proposal, Brownback released $10 million from the FICA refund and deposited the other $15 million in the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all-purpose general fund. Under the Senate subcommitteeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan, that $10 million would be removed from KUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capital improvement budget proposal. Of that $10 million, Arpke recommended $1 million for a technology center at Fort Hays State University, $600,000 to be directed to Washburn University and the rest put in the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s general revenue fund. Arpke said he thought KU could continue with plans for the health education building. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not done discussing the budget at this point,â&#x20AC;? he said.

Retiring Baker president outlines final priorities By Matt Erickson

$2 million altogether, of which about half has been raised. The new cafeteria is set to be finished by the time students return in fall 2013, and she said she hoped the rest would be done by the time she retires in June 2014. Baker trustee Susanne Teel, who donated to the fundraising effort, was given the rights to name the new building, and she announced following Longâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s address that it would honor the universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s departing leader: the Pat McCaslin Long Student Center. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Her commitment to the students is unparalleled,â&#x20AC;? Teel said. Also before she leaves, Long said, she hopes to expand the universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new Institute for Leadership and Positive Change â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a program for all Baker students that will train them to be business leaders with a sense of social responsibility, with the help of outside experts. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the only program of its kind Baker leaders have found, she said, and it launched in January. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think this can be such a distinguishing idea for our campus,â&#x20AC;? Long said. She also said she wanted to hand the university over to her successor in good financial shape, so sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be working to increase enrollment and traveling the country to raise funds. The university aims to increase its total enrollment to 4,000 students, from about 3,500, by the year 2020. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We cannot afford another year of down enrollments,â&#x20AC;? Long said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You all know that.â&#x20AC;? And sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll also be interacting with students, she said, attending as many performances and athletic events as she can. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The greatest joy that I have in this job is being with our students,â&#x20AC;? Long said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seeing you as you perform. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seeing you as you make your presentations, seeing you in your sporting competitions.â&#x20AC;?

BALDWIN CITY â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A few days after announcing her planned retirement, Baker University President Pat Long outlined for students, faculty and staff Tuesday whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in store for her remaining 16 months on the job: an expansion of a new leadership program and a new student union that, attendees learned, will bear her name. Working to increase enrollment and raise Long funds will also be on her to-do list, Long said in a â&#x20AC;&#x153;State of the Universityâ&#x20AC;? speech Tuesday in Bakerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rice Auditorium. Her address was part of the universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Founders Day activities, marking the 155th birthday of the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s oldest four-year college. About 200 people came to watch, which Long said was the biggest crowd sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d seen at the annual event. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild â&#x20AC;&#x153;All I have to do is ancan be reached at 785-423-0668. nounce Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m retiring and it draws them in,â&#x20AC;? said Long, who made her announcement Friday. But she was joking, she said: She knew many students had come to hear rumored details about a remodeled and expanded student union. And Long obliged, showing a video announcing plans to overhaul the Harter Union on campus.

Obama urges GOP to back his plans in State of the Union speech By Julie Pace Associated Press

WASHINGTON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Uncompromising and politically emboldened, President Barack Obama urged a deeply divided Congress Tuesday night to embrace his plans to use government money to create jobs and strengthen the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s middle class. He declared Republican ideas for reducing the deficit â&#x20AC;&#x153;even worseâ&#x20AC;? than the unpalatable deals Washington had to stomach during his first term. In his first State of the Union address since winning re-election, Obama conceded economic revival is an â&#x20AC;&#x153;unfinished task,â&#x20AC;? but he claimed clear progress and said he was prepared to build on it as he embarks on four more years in office. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have cleared away the rubble of crisis, and we can say with renewed confidence that the state of our union is strong,â&#x20AC;? Obama said in an hourlong address to a joint session of Congress and a television audience of millions. With unemployment persistently high and consumer confidence falling, the economy remains a vulnerability for Obama and could disrupt his plans for pursuing a broader agenda, including an immigration overhaul,

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA GESTURES Tuesday as he gives his State of the Union address during a joint session of Congress on Capitol Hill in Washington. stricter gun laws and climate change legislation. Still, fresh off a convincing re-election win, Obama made clear in his remarks that he was determined to press his political advantage against a divided, defensive and worried Republican Party. Numerous times he urged Congress to act quickly on his priorities â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but vowed to act on some issues on his own if they do not. Obama also announced new steps to reduce the U.S. military footprint abroad, with 34,000 American troops withdrawing from Afghanistan within a year. And he had a sharp rebuke for North Korea, which launched a nuclear test just hours before his remarks, saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Provocations of the sort we saw last night will only isolate

them further.â&#x20AC;? In specific proposals for shoring up the economy in his second term, an assertive Obama called for increased federal spending to fix the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s roads and bridges, the first increase in the minimum wage in six years and expansion of early education to every American 4-year-old. Seeking to appeal for support from Republicans, he promised that none of his proposals would increase the deficit â&#x20AC;&#x153;by a single dimeâ&#x20AC;? although he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t explain how he would pay for his programs or how much they would cost. In the Republican response to Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s address, rising GOP star Marco Rubio of Florida came right back at the president, Rubio saying his solution â&#x20AC;&#x153;to virtually every problem we face is for Washington to tax more, borrow more and spend more.â&#x20AC;? Sen. Rubio said presidents of both parties have recognized that the free enterprise system brings middle-class prosperity. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But President Obama?â&#x20AC;? Rubio said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He believes itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the cause of our problems.â&#x20AC;?

Neighbors prep militaries after North Korean nuke test SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; North Koreaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s neighbors bolstered their military preparations and mobilized scientists Wednesday to determine whether Pyongyangâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s third nuclear test, conducted in defiance of U.N. warnings, was as successful as the North claimed. The detonation was also the focus of global diplo-

matic maneuvers, with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry reaching out to counterparts in Seoul, Beijing and Tokyo. President Barack Obama used his State of the Union address to assure U.S. allies in the region and leveled a warning of â&#x20AC;&#x153;firm action.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The regime in North Korea must know that they will only achieve security and prosperity by meeting

their international obligations,â&#x20AC;? Obama said. North Koreaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s third nuclear test, detonated Tuesday at a remote underground site in the northeast, was a crucial step toward its goal of building a bomb small enough to be fitted on a missile capable of striking the United States.

The unofficial spokesman for Heart Attack Grill in Las Vegas has died of a heart attack. He was the second unpaid mascot to die in the past two years. John Alleman, 52, suffered an attack while waiting at a bus stop in front of the diner last week. He was taken off life support Monday, the Las Vegas Sun reported. The medically themed diner is famous for its huge hamburgers, extra-fat milkshakes and fries cooked in lard. It uses the tagline: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Taste worth dying for.â&#x20AC;? Owner Jon Basso told the Sun that Alleman came to the restaurant daily and encouraged passing tourists to try its calorie-laden offerings.

Likely Treasury chief Lew faces budget tests By Martin Crutsinger Associated Press

WASHINGTON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The to-do list that awaits Jacob Lew, President Barack Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s choice to be Treasury secretary, is daunting. Bridge disputes in Congress on taxes and spending. Shrink budget deficits. Manage tense economic ties with China. Press Europe to reduce debts while fighting a recession. Defend the U.S. financial overhaul law. Prevent a global currency war. A n d those are just the obvious challenges. Lewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s job isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quite as perilous as the one that greeted Lew the now-departed Timothy Geithner four years ago. As Treasury secretary, Geithner had to help stabilize a teetering U.S. banking system after the worst financial crisis since the 1930s and help lift the economy out of a deep recession. The economy and banking system are far healthier now. But if the Senate backs Lewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nomination after a committee hearing today, he will likely have to marshal all his strengths as a budget specialist and perhaps overcome inexperience in some areas to achieve significant success.


The federal budget is sure to preoccupy Lewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s early weeks, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also likely to dominate his confirmation hearing before the Senate Finance Committee. Republicans are expected to use the hearing to stress their differences with the administration over deficits and taxes. Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah, the panelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top Republican, said he would press Lew on â&#x20AC;&#x153;what kind of plan the Obama administration has to confront our skyrocketing debt and our broken entitlement programs.â&#x20AC;? Lew, 57, will likely be well-prepared to spar over taxes and spending. He has twice served as a White House budget director â&#x20AC;&#x201D; once during the Clinton administration and once under Obama before becoming White House chief of staff. Going back to his days as an aide to House Speaker Tip Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Neill in the early 1980s, Lew has amassed three decades of experience at the top levels of Washington policy-making. He isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expected to have trouble winning Senate confirmation, despite the likely arguments from Republicans that the administration isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t doing enough to contain â&#x20AC;&#x153;entitlementâ&#x20AC;? programs such as Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security whose costs are straining the federal budget.

Matter of opinion A bill that would prohibit the use of public funds for any state lobbying effort is an attack on the democratic process.


t least some Kansas legislators apparently aren’t interested in hearing what any local government entity has to say about how they run the state. An amazing piece of legislation that was discussed in the Senate Ethics, Elections and Local Government Committee Monday essentially would make it illegal for any public funds to be used to pay for either direct or indirect lobbying services or even membership dues in an association that engages in lobbying the Kansas Legislature. That includes elected officials, local government administrators and, potentially, any group that receives public money of any kind, such as chambers of commerce or even statewide organizations. Those people would be allowed to provide information on legislation only if they were invited to do so by a legislator. Proponents are touting the bill as a way to protect taxpayers, but it seems more like an attempt to muzzle local officials who want to provide information or input on pending legislation. Not allowing local government officials to represent the interests of their communities is a blatant attack on the democratic process. The proposal apparently grew out of the desire of some legislators to clamp down on school teacher unions, but the impact of this legislation goes much further than that. The bill likely would have prevented Douglas County District Attorney Charles Branson from pushing for legislation that would provide stiffer penalties for drunken drivers in injury accidents. The mayor of Manhattan said during Monday’s hearing that lobbyists were essential to his city’s efforts to redevelop its airport and attract the National Bio and Agro-Defense Facility. Other local officials pointed out the importance of interaction between local and state officials to produce the best, most workable legislation. The executive director of the League of Kansas Municipalities said the bill effectively would outlaw his organization and other local government associations whose lobbyists testify to the Legislature. These groups play an important role for local governments — especially in smaller cities and counties — by monitoring legislation that may affect their constituents. The assertion of Sedgwick County Commissioner Karl Peterjohn during Monday’s hearing that public officials who want to lobby on issues outside their “official duty” could do so on their own dime makes no sense. These public officials aren’t representing their own point of view; they are advocating for their constituents. That is their “official duty.” Is the state Legislature also planning to outlaw the use of state money for any effort to monitor or try to influence the federal government on legislation or policies that would affect Kansas? A representative of the Kansas State Rifle Association protested the fact that public entities could lobby against gun rights. Presumably, legislators shouldn’t be interested in what taxpayer-employed law enforcement officials have to say about gun laws. These are just a few examples of issues on which taxpayer-supported entities and officials have both the democratic right and the public duty to initiate communication with the Legislature on behalf of their community constituents. At the end of Monday’s hearing, Committee Chairman Dennis Pyle, R-Hiawatha, said he wasn’t sure what the committee would do with the bill. Perhaps committee members should drop it in the trash and refocus their efforts on establishing a beneficial partnership with local governments rather than trying to shut them out of the legislative process.

Latin America’s corruption starts at top A new study on corruption in Latin America contains some alarming figures — an average of about 20 percent of the region’s people say they have been asked to pay a bribe by a policeman or another public official in the past year, compared with 5 percent in the United States and 3 percent in Canada. The Americas Barometer poll by Vanderbilt University, whose full findings are to be released Thursday at the University of Miami’s Center for Latin American Studies, shows that in some Latin American countries like Haiti, Bolivia and Ecuador, the number of people who say they were asked to pay bribes last year surpasses 40 percent. These three regional champions of corruption are followed not far behind by Mexico, Peru and Honduras, where the percentage of people who say they were asked to pay bribes by public servants is 31 percent, 28 percent and 26 percent respectively, according to the poll of 40,000 people in 26 countries. The new poll is one of the most valuable tools to measure countries’ corruption levels. Unlike other surveys that ask people whether their countries are corrupt — something that can be easily influenced by the media headlines of the day — this one asked about their personal experiences of corruption.

Andres Oppenheimer

It may be no coincidence that last year, when news of harsh sentences against top ruling party politicians dominated the headlines in Brazil, the number of Brazilians who were asked to pay bribes fell by half.” Among the countries that are in the middle of the list of corruption victims are Argentina, where about 20 percent of the people say they have been asked to pay a bribe over the past 12 months, Colombia (16 percent) and Venezuela (15 percent). Surprisingly, the countries with below-average corruption rates include Brazil, where President Dilma Rousseff has fired more than a half-dozen cabinet ministers because of allegations of corruption, and where the Supreme Court last year sen-

tenced powerful ruling party politician Jose Dirceu to a 10-year prison term in the country’s biggest corruption scandal in recent times. A relatively low 11 percent of Brazilians say they have been asked to pay a bribe over the past 12 months, the poll shows. Latin America’s cleanest country is Chile, where only 6 percent say they have been asked to pay a bribe, the poll shows. Elizabeth J. Zechmeister, a Vanderbilt professor who was among the poll’s supervisors, told me that while overall corruption victim numbers in the region rose slightly in 2012, it’s not a uniform trend. “The countries that are driving that general increase in the region are Ecuador, Bolivia, Haiti and Honduras,” she said, adding that the poll is done every two years. “But in Brazil, Mexico and Argentina, we see a decrease in the number of people who said they were asked to pay bribes.” In Ecuador, the number of people who said they were asked to pay a bribe doubled over the past two years, from 21 percent in 2010 to 41 percent in 2012. Conversely, in Brazil, the figure fell dramatically, from 24 percent in 2010 to the current 11 percent, the poll shows. What can we learn from these figures? I asked Ariel Armony, head of U.M.’s Center for Latin American Studies and an academic partner

of Vanderbilt’s study. “They show that when people think that institutions are corrupt, and that there is no rule of law, they are more likely to pay and accept bribes,” he said. “On the other hand, when people see that the government is cracking down on corruption, like in Brazil, people behave more honestly.” My opinion: I agree. It may be no coincidence that last year, when news of harsh sentences against top ruling party politicians dominated the headlines in Brazil, the number of Brazilians who were asked to pay bribes fell by half. And it may be no coincidence that Chile, which has strong institutions, emerged in the poll as the Latin American country with the lowest number of bribery cases. Granted, there are many other causes of corruption, including excessive government regulations and huge bureaucracies. The more government inspectors you have, the more opportunities they have to ask for bribes. But, in general, corruption starts from the top, and gets stopped from the top. The good news is that Brazil, the biggest country in the region, is showing the way of how to fight corruption — from the top down. It would be great if all of Brazil’s neighbors followed its steps. — Andres Oppenheimer is a Latin America correspondent for the Miami Herald.

Cyberattack is a real threat The last few weeks have seen an increasing number of articles in the media about the dangers of cyberwar. In part, this increase in the volume may be due to the current confirmation hearings in Congress for the new director of the Central Intelligence Agency and, in part, because of a recent major conference on cybersecurity, the S4, held in Miami. But the truth is that the danger is all too real, as is the perception that the United States is not prepared for what appears to be inevitable: a major cyberattack on American interests. In fact, such attacks are going on every day. Last fall, two United States powergenerating stations were targets of a computer virus that affected turbine operation and required temporary shutdowns. Recently, the New York Times ran a series of articles detailing how it had been the target of a sophisticated long-term attack designed to steal data from the company’s computers. The Times attributed the attack to China. Just a few weeks ago, a new virus was discovered to be infecting more than 500,000 Macintosh computers, once thought to be virtually impervious to such attacks. This virus was designed to steal financial data from computers. Apparently, this virus is now spreading to PCs as well. It is incorrect to say that the United States may come under cyberattacks in the future. The future is already here. As troubling as attacks on individual computers may be, attacks on computers that operate critical infrastructure are far more dangerous. Several years ago the U.S. government went to great lengths to suppress a scholarly paper that described how a cyberattack could bring down the American electrical grid. But this hardly has prevented such

knowledge from spreading worldwide. Properly orchestrated attacks on American computers could bring electricity production to a halt. Similarly, attacks could wreak havoc with our transportation systems, water delivery systems, even traffic controls. There are very few critical infrastructure components that are not computer controlled and, therefore, at risk of cyberattack. The good news is that the Pentagon has established a new “Cyber Command” and has recently indicated that it will substantially increase the size of this command. But the military alone cannot solve our national cybersecurity problems. Virtually all of our critical infrastructure, financial institutions and transportation systems are privately owned. Unless these private corporations act now to protect their property from cyberattack, our risk of some catastrophe even caused by a hostile country or individuals increases each day. — Mike Hoeflich, a distinguished professor in the Kansas University School of Law, writes a regular column for the Journal-World.

To the editor: Thank you very much to the cinema manager and owners of Liberty Hall for bringing the beautiful and significant documentary “Chasing Ice” to downtown Lawrence. This is the story of James Balog, one of the world’s premier nature photographers, who went to the Arctic in 2005 on assignment for National Geographic to capture images that would portray the reality of the Earth’s warming and the visual evidence of a changing climate. With a scientific background, Balog had been unconvinced by computer climate simulations, but the sight of melting icefields changed his mind. In 2007, he began the “Extreme Ice Survey.” With a team of adventurous assistants, Balog deployed a system of time-lapse cameras at glaciers in Alaska, Iceland, Greenland, and Montana. The results of this unprecedented photographic feat show glaciers breaking up and tumbling into the sea and the rapid shrinkage of glaciers in just a few years. “Chasing Ice” is an outdoor story and a personal story with Balog as the central character, but the main message is visual with just enough scientific interpretation to give the film a sobering credibility. In these times, it’s very important for people who care about the future of society to see this film and think about the implications for themselves. I appreciate that Liberty Hall has provided this opportunity for all of us. Dale Nimz, Lawrence

Screening error? To the editor: After my initial shock at the killings by U.S. Navy veteran and ex-cop Christopher Dorner in Los Angeles, I was reminded of the pieces in the Journal-World by the dean and the retired lieutenant colonel recommending that everyone serve in the military or at least be screened by them to avoid gun violence.

Inches away from achieving hero status Tuesday night at Lawrence High, sophomore Anthony Bonner, like his teammates, cringed for a moment after his last-second, half-court heave missed to the right, allowing unbeaten Shawnee Mission South (Class 5A’s No. 1 team) to escape The Jungle with a 49-48 boys basketball victory.

Elijah Johnson realizes that, whether he’s making shots or not, he’s vitally important to Kansas University’s basketball team. “I personally say that I’ve got to start the car. We can’t drive it until I start it,” Johnson, the Jayhawks’ senior starting point guard, said after scoring five points off 1-of-6 shooting (0-4 from three, 3-3 from the line) with three assists against four turnovers in Monday’s 83-62 victory over Kansas State in Allen Fieldhouse. “They are sitting in the car waiting,” Johnson added of his teammates. “Tonight I started the car and had everybody rolling.” Johnson — he played mostly shooting guard a year ago — can be seen during games encouraging younger players such as Ben McLemore and Richard Gwin/Journal-World Photo Perry Ellis while not dwellLAWRENCE HIGH SOPHOMORE ANTHONY BONNER (15) SAILS IN FOR TWO POINTS against ing on his shooting stats — Shawnee Mission South on Tuesday at LHS.

College basketball is broken


By Kevin Sherrington Dallas Morning News

Over the last five days, three of the top five menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball teams lost to unranked opponents, meaning one of three things:

Players donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take the regular season any more seriously than fans do.

Someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s using old rankings.

Cinderella has a lot of sisters. Or maybe what it really means is this: College basketball is broken, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time the NCAA, NBA and the playersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; association come up with a compromise that would restore integrity to the game, benefitting colleges, pros, players, fans and maybe even the Mavs, who havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t found a star from the college ranks since Mark Cuban lived like he dresses. Fortunately, I have just such a solution for all of the above, and all it requires is that players stay two, maybe even three years in college. The upside: Teenagers get to grow up a little and get an education on the side; casual fans recognize players whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been through their gym more than once; experience means better quality; coaches are no longer at the mercy of shorttimers; players would have to go to class, which they can now avoid because of loopholes in the one-and-done; and the pros get players who might actually be ready to contribute right away. If the benefits are so great, whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the problem? No one can agree on anything rational, which is how we got where we are. History: In 2007, the NBA instituted a rule in which teams couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t draft a player under the age of 19, or until a year after his senior class graduated. The league did it because players were turning pro right out of high school, and it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exactly working out for them or the league. But whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happened since has made a mockery of basketball. Consider this: Kentucky wins the national title last year, and four of its players â&#x20AC;&#x201D; three freshmen and a sophomore â&#x20AC;&#x201D; end up first-round picks. Fortunately for Wildcats fans, John Calipari is a terrific recruiter. He keeps winning games, losing first-rounders and winning still. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coming off three straight Elite Eights, two Final Fours and a national title. But this season the turnover has finally taken a toll, not only on Kentuckyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s record but its coach. Calipari says that, for the first time in his career, he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t watch film with his players. Assistants do that. He spends his days reading books and talking to sports psychologists, educating himself on what it takes to reach a roster full of 18-year-olds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want them to see me in a basketball sense right now,â&#x20AC;? Calipari told the Louisville Courier-Journal last week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just teaching life skills. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all. How to deal with this. How to deal with adversity. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What does it mean to love? Tell me what it means to love.â&#x20AC;? Frankly, is this what we really want? John Calipari going Dr. Phil on his players?

SAYED ABDELMONEM HAMED OF EGYPT competes against Zaur Kuramagomedov of Russia in an Olympic wrestling match during the 2012 Summer Games in London.

Wrestling dropped from 2020 Olympics LAUSANNE, SWITZERLAND â&#x20AC;&#x201D; For wrestling, this may have been the ultimate body slam: getting tossed out of the Olympic rings. The vote Tuesday by the IOCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s executive board stunned the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wrestlers, who see their sport as popular in many countries and steeped in history as old as the Olympics themselves. While wrestling will be included at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, it was cut from the games in 2020, which have yet to be awarded to a host city. 2004 Olympic Greco-Roman champion Khasan Baroev of Russia called the decision â&#x20AC;&#x153;mind-boggling.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe it. And what sport will then be added to the Olympic program? What sport is worthy of replacing ours?â&#x20AC;? Baroev told the ITAR-Tass news agency. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wrestling is popular in many countries â&#x20AC;&#x201D; just see how the medals were distributed at the last Olympics.â&#x20AC;? American Rulan Gardner, who upset threetime Russian Olympic champion Alexander Karelin at the Sydney Games in an epic goldmedal bout known as the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Miracle on the Mat,â&#x20AC;? was saddened by the decision to drop what he called â&#x20AC;&#x153;a beloved sport.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the IOC trying to change the Olympics to make it more mainstream and more viewerfriendly instead of sticking to what they founded the Olympics on,â&#x20AC;? Gardner told The Associated Press in a telephone interview from Logan, Utah. The executive board of the International Olympic Committee reviewed the 26 sports on its summer program in order to remove one of them so it could add one later this year. It decided to cut wrestling and keep modern pentathlon â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a sport that combines fencing, horse riding, swimming, running and shooting â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and was considered to be the most likely to be dropped. The board voted after reviewing a report by the IOC program commission report that analyzed 39 criteria, including TV ratings, ticket sales, anti-doping policy and global participation and popularity. With no official rankings or recommendations contained in the report, the final decision by the 15-member board was also subject to political, emotional and sentimental factors. The IOC executive board will meet in May in St. Petersburg, Russia, to decide which sport or sports to propose for 2020 inclusion. The final vote will be made at the IOC session, or general assembly, in September in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Wrestling will now join seven other sports in applying for 2020, but it is extremely unlikely that it would be voted back in so soon after being removed by the executive board. The other sports vying for a single opening in 2020 are a combined bid from baseball and softball, karate, squash, roller sports, sport climbing, wakeboarding and wushu, a martial art.


Bulls leave Hinrich home DEERFIELD, ILL. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Chicago Bulls left injured guard Kirk Hinrich at home when they traveled to Boston to face the Celtics in their final game before the All-Star break. Hinrich hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t appeared in a game since Jan. 30 at Milwaukee. He had a procedure on Feb. 2 to have an infection cleaned out of his right elbow. Coach Tom Thibodeau said before Chicagoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 103-89 loss to San Antonio on Monday night that he believed Hinrich was going to make the trip to Boston for tonightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game. But Thibodeau said Tuesday that Hinrich was not going to travel with the team. Hinrich, a former Kansas University standout, has been hampered by a variety of injuries all season. He is averaging 7.0 points in 40 games.

Sped-up Free State girls fall to SMNW By Jesse Newell

Kevin Anderson/Journal-World Photo

FREE STATE’S A’LIYAH ROGERS (4) DRIVES into the Shawnee Mission Northwest defense for a shot on Tuesday in Shawnee. The Firebirds girls lost, 57-47.

SHAWNEE — Forcing 28 turnovers usually is a good formula for producing an upset on the road. The No. 9 Free State girls basketball team’s struggles in other areas made that statistic irrelevant, however, as the Firebirds fell, 57-47, to No. 6 Shawnee Mission Northwest on Tuesday night. “We didn’t play very good team basketball tonight,” FSHS coach Bryan Duncan said. “We got away from what we’ve been doing. We played with tremendous effort, but we didn’t play smart tonight.” Part of the Firebirds’ issues were on the offensive end, where Duncan said his team was sped up by the Cougars’ defense. The result was 20 Free State giveaways to go with an uncharacteristic poor shooting night.

I think we just got a little out of our comfort zone. We probably could have been a little more patient on offense. We got good shots. We could have gotten better shots.” — Free State girls basketball coach Bryan Duncan FSHS made just 31 percent of its shots (16 of 51) and 16 percent of its three-pointers (three of 19). “I think we just got a little out of our comfort zone,” Duncan said. “We probably could have been a little more patient on offense. We got good shots. We could have gotten better shots.” Defensively, Free State had a hard time stopping Northwest’s transition game while allowing too many layups.

The Cougars’ two starting post players, Anna King and Brenni Rose, combined for 24 points on 11-for-20 shooting. Free State also was dominated on the glass, allowing 14 offensive rebounds while picking up just 15 defensive rebounds. “We’ve got to rebound better,” Duncan said, “and I think that’s by actually slowing the game down and being a little more patient on both ends.” The Firebirds were led by A’Liyah Rogers, who battled foul trouble most of the night before fouling out. The senior guard scored a game-high 18 points on 7-for-14 shooting, producing most of her points on aggressive drives to the rim. Chelsea Casady added 11 points, while Free State leading scorer Kennedy Kirkpatrick suffered through one her worst shooting nights this season. The senior scored

eight points on 2-for-15 shooting, missing all eight of her three-point attempts. “What makes us go is ball movement and moving together defensively as a unit,” Duncan said. “Tonight we didn’t have that.” Free State (12-5) will play at Olathe North at 5:30 p.m. Friday.

Shooting slump, turnovers doom LHS girls By Benton Smith

A brutal shooting slump and a series of ball-handling miscues led to an eighth consecutive loss for Lawrence High’s girls basketball team Tuesday night against Shawnee Mission South. The Lions went more than 23 straight minutes without a field goal, missing all of their tries in both the second and third quarters, in a 51-17 loss at LHS. A week after playing perhaps its best basketball of the season against Shawnee Mission East’s 2-3 zone, Lawrence turned the ball over 22 times against the same half-court defense applied by the Raiders (98). The Lions’ inability to move the ball from side to side and get to the spots on the floor that would create offense confounded coach Nick Wood. “All of the sudden we come out and see a 2-3 zone and we let it totally affect us,” Wood said after his team made just five of its 28 field goals. “We can’t do anything. There was no urgency. Lazy passes. It was frustrating.” Lions senior Kylie Seaman hit a baseline jumper after tracking down an offensive rebound to make it 4-2, SM South, in the opening minutes of the first quarter. However, the Lions managed just two more field-goal at-


of his team-high 14 points in the fourth, left his first free throw short, to the delight of the LHS home crowd. Lawrence coach Mike Lewis proceeded to call a timeout before Bruster’s second free throw, giving him plenty of time to consider the consequences of missing. But Bruster, who had made just two of his five free throws up to that point, drained the one his team needed most, putting Lawrence in a onepoint hole. LHS senior Drake Hofer threw an inbounds pass to Bonner, whose long strides allowed him to cross half court with two dribbles. “As soon as I took my first dribble, I thought I had a chance,” Bonner said after scoring a game-best 19 points on 6-for-9 shooting. “I jumped up and the defender could’ve blocked my shot, so I had to adjust. I just couldn’t get it.” While the Lions (11-6, No. 4 in 6A) entered the locker room devastated, a few minutes to reflect on what they had nearly accomplished allowed them to feel a little bit better about it.

In the third, Lawrence misfired on all seven of its shots, and compounded its woes with seven more turnovers. SM South stretched its lead to 43-6 entering the fourth after Coleman’s free throw with 1:07 on the clock gave the Lions their only point of the quarter. Finally, after missing 15 consecutive field goals, a Coleman turn-around jumper off a pass from Marissa Pope gave LHS its first basket since the game’s opening minutes. Kevin Anderson/Journal-World Photo Still, the Raiders led 43-9. Lawrence converted FREE STATE’S RESHAWN CARO (24) TRIES TO PASS four of its 11 shots in the around Shawnee Mission Northwest defenders on fourth. Coleman (seven Tuesday in Shawnee.

KU women aim to play angry By Matt Tait


By this point in the season, most college basketball coaches expect to be dealing more with answers than questions. But that has not been the case for the Kansas University women’s basketball team, which will look to snap its second losing skid in the past five weeks at 7 tonight at TCU. On the heels of one of the more disappointing efforts of the season, a 16-point home loss to West Virginia last Saturday, the Jayhawks are facing questions about mental toughness, defensive fundamentals and even the rotation, given the season-ending injury suffered by starting guard Natalie Knight and the voluntary departure of starting forward Tania Jackson a couple of weeks earlier. “I wouldn’t say it’s same old, same old,” said senior guard Monica Engelman. “But it is a little more frustrating that we’re struggling with certain things. Because of what we were able to do last season, our expectations were a little higher, but I still have the same expectations and I have no doubt in my mind that we’ll be able to do what we are capable of.” In order for that to occur, Engelman said the Jayhawks must get angry.

do a good job of defending teams’ scripted sets.” KU has struggled at times this season when opponents have gone to zone defenses, so facing it for a full 40 minutes could represent a challenge. Still, Henrickson’s experienced squad comes into this one averaging more points (68-60) and giving up fewer (63-64) while also out-shooting (44 percent to 35 percent) and out-rebounding (plus1.5 to minus-4.5 per game) the Horned Frogs on the season. While the tale of the tape seems to favor Kansas, the players themselves do not plan to take that mentality into the battle. “The game against TCU is highly important,” Engelman said. “We need to be desperate.”

leads in the second. The game was so lopsided that both coaches filled the court with reserves during the final minutes. “We probably played our best game in three years,” Izzo said. “And, they probably played one of their worst.” Michigan coach John Beilein agreed. “That was the worst we’ve played in a long, long time and credit Michigan State for that,” he said. Burke scored 18 points for the Wolverines and didn’t get much help from his teammate offensively, or defensively. Tim Hardaway Jr. was held scoreless until making a layup in the opening minute of the second half — after turning down Beilein’s suggestion to work on his shot during halftime warmups — and didn’t score again. Hardaway was 1 of 11 from the field and scored a seasonlow two points. “They bullied us — point blank,” he said. “I’ve got nothing else to say.” Glen Robinson III was 1 of 4 and scored two points to match his season low.

No. 7 Florida 69, No. 25 Kentucky 52 GAINESVILLE, FLA. — Scottie Wilbekin had 14 points and eight assists, Pat Young recorded his sixth double-double of the season, and Florida handled Kentucky. The Gators (20-3, 10-1 Southeastern Conference) snapped a five-game losing streak in the series, and coach Billy Donovan improved to 2-7 against Kentucky’s John Calipari. This one solidified Florida’s spot atop the league standings. The Wildcats (17-7, 8-3) lost for the first time in six games, and it may have been costly. Nerlens Noel, the nation’s leading shot-blocker, injured his left knee in the second half and did not return. Noel, a freshman who averages 10.6 points, 9.6 rebounds and 4.5 blocks a game for the defending national champions, landed awkwardly on his leg with about eight minutes to play. He screamed in pain as trainers rushed to his side. The Gators opened a double-digit lead, 31-19, in the first half on consecutive three-pointers by Wilbekin, Mike Rosario and Kenny Boynton.

Baylor’s home streak hits 52 The Associated Press

No. 1 Baylor 89, Texas Tech 47 WACO, TEXAS — Brittney Griner had 10 points and 11 rebounds for her 54th career double-double, and the top-ranked Baylor Lady Bears moved closer to another Big 12 title with their 52nd consecutive home victory Tuesday night. Griner, the two-time All-American senior, also had seven blocked shots and five assists while leading four players scoring in double figures for Baylor. Along with their nation’s best home winning streak, the Lady Bears have several other impressive winning streaks. They have won 21 games in a row overall and 35 consecutive Big 12 regular-season games.

Odyssey Sims had 18 points, six steals and five assists for Baylor. Brooklyn Pope had 17 points while Kimetria Hayden had 10 points and seven assists. Chynna Brown had 15 points to lead Texas Tech (18-7, 8-5), and Casey Morris had 10. The Lady Raiders, who lost by 30 at home to Baylor only two weeks earlier, scored the first four points in the rematch. The Lady Bears went nearly 2 1/2 minutes before Jordan Madden’s threepointer, and went ahead to stay when Griner had a rebound that led to her jumper that made it 5-4. When Madden made her second three-pointer, only two minutes after the first, it was already 11-6. The Lady Bears, going for their third con-

secutive regular-season conference title, have a four-game lead over 22nd-ranked Oklahoma with five league games left. Their only remaining non-conference game in the regular season is Monday night’s showdown at third-ranked Connecticut.

Braun facing credibility questions By Gary D’Amato Milwauee Journal Sentinel

As Yogi Berra would say, it’s déjà vu all over again. For the second consecutive year, Milwaukee Brewers left fielder Ryan Braun reports to spring training this week dogged by questions about performance-enhancing drugs. The circumstances are quite different from one year ago, when news was leaked of Braun’s positive drug test for an unusually high level of synthetic testosterone. An arbitration panel later overturned a 50-game suspension, which would have begun on opening day. This time, the all-star’s name surfaced on the logs of a Miami anti-aging clinic linked to supplying baseball players with PEDs. Braun quickly issued a statement saying his attorneys merely used clinic operator Anthony Bosch as a consultant in their defense planning for the 2012 arbitration hearing. But in the court of public opinion, the damage was done. Across social media platforms, Braun has been blasted by baseball fans who don’t yet have the facts but subscribe to the theory that where there’s smoke, there’s fire. Jonathan Norman, senior director of client strategy for GMR Marketing of New Berlin, Wis., understands the rush to judgment on Braun but cautions fans to sit back, take a deep breath and wait for the facts to come out. “What I would say is social media has taken the news cycle from days to minutes and seconds,” Norman said. “The court of public opinion is much like a drive-through restaurant instead of a sitdown meal. “People are quick to form their own judgments because of the way we’re sharing this information. You’re expected to not only form an opinion but to share it.” When it comes to PEDs, athletes no longer receive the benefit of the doubt. Too many have made strong denials that later were revealed as lies. Exhibit A is cyclist Lance Armstrong, whose years of deceit and manipulation were exposed as the workings of an arrogant con artist. Fair or not, it’s natural for some fans to jump to conclusions when it comes to Braun. “I think it’s sort of like playing roulette,” Norman said. “To assume that because it hit red last time it’s going to hit black this time, that’s false logic. We’re in a time when PEDs are in the public conversation and it’s easy to make a reach, especially when all the facts are not known.” Even noted sportscaster Bob Costas has weighed in, questioning why Braun’s defense team would use Bosch as a consultant and saying that “we all know (Braun) got off on a technicality (in 2012).” Arbitrator Shyam Das cast the deciding vote on what became a chainof-custody issue after Braun’s urine sample was taken for a drug test in October 2011. Das later was fired by Major League Baseball, which clearly was unhappy with the panel’s finding. “People say (Braun) got off on a technicality,” said David Leigh, a clinical assistant professor in exercise science at Marquette University and an expert in the field of testing athletes for PEDs. “I would not say that. I would say MLB’s drug-testing protocol was flawed.”




Fielder content to share spotlight LAKELAND, FLA. (AP) — With his beefy frame and prodigious power, Prince Fielder doesn’t look like a player who can simply blend into a lineup. Somehow, the slugging first baseman did just that in his first season with the Detroit Tigers. Fielder signed a $214 million deal early last year, arriving in Motown amid predictable fanfare. Then he hit .313 with 30 home runs and 108 RBIs in a Detroit debut that was largely devoid of drama. With Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera hitting in front of him and Justin Verlander baffling hitters from the mound, Fielder’s terrific production was almost overshadowed. And that’s exactly how he prefers it. “It’s always good to be on a team when you have superstars who are cool guys. They know how to play the game,” Fielder said. “Everyone here is a star, so it’s not a big deal. I love that. The more attention off me, the better.” Detroit’s pitchers and catchers went through their first spring training workout Tuesday, but the full squad doesn’t start until later this week. Fielder appeared at a youth baseball field in Lakeland on Tuesday, joining around 100 youngsters for the unveiling of what was billed as the world’s largest baseball card. The card, created by the Topps Company, mea-

DETROIT TIGERS FIRST BASEMAN PRINCE FIELDER poses for a photo on a giant replica of his 2013 Topps baseball card Tuesday in Lakeland, Fla. sured approximately 90 feet by 60 feet, leaving center field covered with the giant image of Fielder swinging. That’s about as ostentatious as it gets for Fielder these days. His violent, uppercut swing is in direct contrast with his persona. His goal each season is to be consistent and avoid major peaks and valleys. That attitude may have rubbed off on the Tigers, who were a disappoint-

ment for much of 2012 but never panicked. They rallied late in the season to win both the AL Central and the American League pennant. “I think it helped the team,” said Don Kelly, an outfielder on last year’s team. “He was pretty steady the whole time. He never got too high or too low. Just kind of stayed the same guy every day.” Perhaps that’s why Fielder seemed so com-

fortable from the start. Some high-profile free agents might try too hard to have a big season after switching teams. Others might need time to adjust to new surroundings or opponents. Fielder made the transition from the NL’s Milwaukee Brewers look easy. His focus was on being the same hitter he’s always been — nothing more, nothing less. “They brought you over

here because of what you do, not what they want to see you do better,” Fielder told The Associated Press in an interview at the baseball card event. “My thing is just staying consistent and being healthy, because when you’re healthy, that gives you the best chance to be consistent because you’re on the field.” The 28-year-old Fielder has eight years left on his contract with Detroit, so his durability will be important. He played 162 games last season — the third time in four years he reached that mark. Ever since he became a big-league regular, Fielder has tried not to miss time if he’s healthy enough to play. “It just feels like I left the iron on,” he said. “For me, it’s a weird feeling, and I don’t like that feeling.” Cabrera won the MVP last year, and Verlander nearly took his second straight Cy Young Award. Fielder teamed up with those two to lead the Tigers to the World Series. Once there, he went 1 for 14 — but he wasn’t the only Tiger who struggled. Detroit was shut out twice, had the third-lowest batting average in Series history at .159 and was swept by San Francisco. “To lose the World Series, you’ve got to get there,” Fielder said. “Disappointed by the loss, but we still achieved something great.”

Royals acquire utility player Johnson from Rays SURPRISE, ARIZ. (AP) — Kansas City has acquired utility player Elliott Johnson from the Tampa Bay Rays as the player to be named in the Dec. 9 trade

that sent James Shields and Wade Davis to Kansas City for top prospects Wil Myers and Jake Odorizzi along with two other minor leaguers.

The switch-hitting Johnson batted .242 with 10 doubles, six homers, 33 RBIs, and 18 steals last year with the Rays. The 29-year-old started 68

games at shortstop and also played second, third and the outfield. To make room for Johnson on the 40-man big league roster, the Royals

Mariners agree with Hernandez PEORIA, ARIZ. (AP) — Felix Hernandez and Seattle reached agreement Tuesday on a contract that is expected to make the Mariners ace the highest-paid pitcher in baseball. “I think it’s a great thing for the Seattle Mariners,” Seattle general manager Jack Zduriencik said. “It’s a great thing for Felix Hernandez, and looking forward to this guy being here for a very long time, obviously.” Hernandez’s deal is expected to be for $175 million over seven years. Terms of the contract were not released by the team. Hernandez and Zduriencik will hold a news conference in Seattle on Wednesday afternoon where Hernandez is expected to sign the contract. Earlier Tuesday, Zduriencik said the sides were having significant talks to try to finalize a new contract for the threetime All-Star and 2010 AL Cy Young Award winner. Zduriencik said then that a deal of that magnitude in years and dollars, “takes time to work things out.” It didn’t take too long. By the afternoon, Hernandez’s deal was done and Seattle had its ace locked up through the 2019 season. The new contract will encompass the final two years of his current deal that is scheduled to pay Hernandez $40.5 million in 2013 and 2014. He’ll receive $134.5 million over the additional five years. Hernandez’s total dollars would top CC Sabathia’s original $161 million, seven-year contract with the New York Yankees and his $25 million

average would surpass Zack Greinke’s $24.5 million under his new contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers and tie him for the second-highest in baseball with Josh Hamilton and Ryan Howard behind Alex Rodriguez ($27.5 million). Hernandez’s new money would average $26.9 million over five years. With Hernandez off the market, Detroit’s Justin Verlander and the Dodgers’ Clayton Kershaw become the most attractive pitchers eligible for free agency after the 2014 season. Tampa Bay’s David Price is eligible after the 2015 season. Hernandez, who will turn 27 on April 8, is 9876 with a 3.22 ERA in eight seasons with the Mariners. He won a career-high 19 games in 2009 when he finished second in the Cy Young voting then won the award a year later when he went just 13-12 but had a 2.27 ERA and 232 strikeouts. Hernandez appeared to be making another Cy Young push last year before going 0-4 in his last six starts, which left him at 13-9 with 223 strikeouts. His career record would be even better if he didn’t play with one of baseball’s worst offenses. Seattle had the lowest batting average in the major leagues in each of the last three seasons. Hernandez has taken 10 losses during that span when he’s given up two earned runs or less. For his career, Hernandez has allowed two earned runs or less in 141 of 238 starts, but the team is only 99-42 in those games due to the offensive problems.

Drink of this a day can help keep flu away


â&#x20AC;&#x2122;m probably jinxing myself by writing this column, but: So far, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve avoided the flu that has claimed so many of my friends and family this year. Of course, the second after this appears in front of other eyeballs, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll probably come down with the dreaded illness, but until that happens, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll share my secret. Of course, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m careful to wash my hands and not touch my face, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve probably just gotten lucky, too, but I really do think I have a kitchen remedy thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s helped me stay in the clear. Any night Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve come home not feeling 100 percent, or just whenever Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had the time, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve made this green juice and chugged it down. It contains several illnessfighting ingredients: kale for vitamin A and overall leafy green awesomeness,

Sarah Henning cucumber and celery for extra special hydration, garlic (aka the inflammation killer also known as Italian penicillin), lemon for a bit of vitamin C, and the added benefit of a probiotic to keep the gut flora healthy. Now, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the tastiest juice ever (you might have guessed that already), but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s actually kind of addictive. The garlic, lemon and sour probiotic help cut the â&#x20AC;&#x153;greenâ&#x20AC;? flavor and leave

you with a savory drink that hits the right notes. You may want to add extra lemon or probiotic at first, or juice in some carrots or an apple or two to help with the flavor, but if you can go with the original, do. I actually like to savor it over 10 minutes or so, but thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing wrong with splitting this serving in two, giving the other half to your significant other and seeing who can down it the fastest. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a juicer? You can try chopping up and adding the same ingredients (though maybe not the full amount) to your blender with enough water to get it going and make an unsweetened green smoothie. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get the added benefit of fiber, even if you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get in a full head of kale or celery in a single serving. If I do end up with the flu just for having the

audacity to say this juice helped me through the season, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll take the punishment fate deals out, just so that you all my have another secret weapon in your arsenals. Clearly, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll do anything for you people. Now, bottoms up!

Pour the chocolate onto the prepared pan, then tap the pan on the counter to level the melted chocolate. Immediately sprinkle your choice of toppings over the surface of the chocolate. Allow to cool completely and set up, then break into pieces.

Looking for an easy way to impress this Valentineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day? Consider a simple â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but still sensational â&#x20AC;&#x201D; chocolate bark. As treats go, it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get much easier than this. And the best part is that there are infinite ways to personalize the bark. You know, so that you can show that you really do listen to your significant other and care enough to cater to his or her tastes.

Valentineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day Bark Start to finish: 20 minutes Servings: 12 1 pound dark, milk or white chocolate Start by lining a rimmed baking sheet with waxed paper. Have all your bark toppings ready before melting the chocolate.


Warm Double Chocolate Cakes With Raspberry Sauce Start to finish: 3 hours 20 minutes (30 minutes active) Servings: 8 For the chocolate cakes: 1/4 cup sugar, plus 8 teaspoons for coating the ramekins 4 1/2 ounces bittersweet chocolate, divided 2 large eggs, whites and yolks separated and brought to room temperature 1/3 cup plain nonfat Greek yogurt For the sauce: 1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen raspberries (if frozen, thaw, drain and retain the liquid) 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar Coat eight 1/3- or 1/4cup ramekins with cooking spray. Sprinkle about 1 teaspoon of sugar into each, swirling it around to coat the bottom and sides, then dumping out any excess. Finely chop 2 1/2 ounces


Super-Easy, Canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t-Go-Wrong Caramel Sauce 1 cup sugar 2 tablespoons corn syrup 2 tablespoons water 1/2 cup hot heavy cream 1 tablespoon unsalted butter 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon vanilla Stir the sugar, corn syrup, and water together in a medium glass bowl or

SIX VARIATIONS of Valentineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day chocolate bark are shown.

If your chocolate is in bars or large, thick pieces, use a knife to carefully chop it up into small bits. Transfer the chocolate to a large glass measuring cup or bowl, then heat in the microwave on medium, stopping to stir every 20 to 30 seconds, until completely melted.

Topping suggestions:

Large-flake coconut, toasted sliced almonds, cocoa nibs

Chopped dried cherries, shelled pistachios, chopped chocolate wafer cookies, large flake sea salt

Honey roasted peanuts, chopped extra-crispy cooked bacon, ground black pepper

Crushed toffee pieces, toasted pumpkin seeds, chopped dried apricots

Chopped candied ginger, chopped macadamia nuts, toasted coconut

Broken salted pretzel sticks, cut up mini marshmallows, caramel popcorn

of the chocolate. Cut the remaining 2 ounces into 16 pieces, roughly the same size, then set those aside. Bring a small saucepan of water to a bare simmer. Set a medium stainless steel bowl over it and add the 2 1/2 ounces of finely chopped chocolate to that. Heat, stirring occasionally, until the chocolate is melted. While the chocolate is melting, in another medium bowl use an electric mixer to beat the egg yolks with 1 tablespoon of the sugar until they are thick and lemon colored, about 4 minutes. Set the bowl aside and clean the beaters well. In a third medium bowl, use the electric mixer to beat the egg whites until they form soft peaks. Add the remaining 3 tablespoons of granulated sugar, a little at a time, and continue beating until the whites hold stiff peaks. Set aside. Remove the melted chocolate from the heat. Add the yogurt and stir well. Add the egg yolk mixture and stir well. Add one third of the egg whites to the chocolate mixture, stirring well, then gently fold in the remaining egg whites

until they are just combined with the chocolate mixture. Divide the batter among the prepared ramekins. Cover and chill for 1 hour. While the cakes are chilling, heat the oven to 325 F and prepare the sauce. In a blender, puree the raspberries with the sugar. Pour the mixture through a mesh strainer, using a silicone spatula to press the pulp. Discard the pulp and seeds. Thin the sauce with water or with the reserved raspberry liquid (if using frozen berries) until the sauce has a nice pouring consistency. Remove the ramekins from the fridge, tuck 2 pieces of the cut chocolate into the center of each and bake in the middle of the oven for 15 to 18 minutes, or until just springy when touched. Let cool for 5 minutes, then unmold or serve in the ramekins. Serve drizzled with the raspberry sauce.

jar. Microwave until the caramel is just barely starting to take on some color, 5-8 minutes. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let it get too dark. As it sits on the counter it will darken on its own. Meanwhile, heat the cream on the stove â&#x20AC;&#x201D; careful not to scorch. Cold cream will NOT work, so donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t skip this step. Add the cream slowly to the sugar mixture and stir. It will bubble up. This is normal. Then add the butter and stir until everything is melted together. Easy, breezy, beautiful! Eat it with a spoon or drizzle it on top of your quickie cake. Whatever

curls your toes. This is foolproof caramel sauce. Take it from me. I have ruined many a caramel sauce in my day, and I cannot ruin this. If you have some raspberries or strawberries, you could put them atop this little miracle cake. Also, it goes great with ice cream. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s festive and valentine-y and, heck, no one has to know it all came out of the microwave, right? Maybe it is just you being super clever in your little individual valentine presentation. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Read Meagan Stukeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Flying Fork blog at

THESE DOUBLE CHOCOLATE CAKES WITH RASPBERRY SAUCE use nonfat Greek yogurt instead of butter usually found in chocolate cakes.

Real chocolate can be healthy (and loving) choice By Sara Moulton Associated Press

Love is always sweeter when expressed with chocolate! Especially on Valentineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day. Yes, chocolate... And the more ooey-gooey deeply chocolaty, the better. Still,

thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no sense overdoing it. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always believed that when it comes to dessert, a little bit can go a long way. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why this chocolate dream of a recipe takes the form of small-ish individual cakes rather than a single, family-sized gut-buster. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also why Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve replaced

the butter usually found in chocolate cakes with non-fat Greek yogurt. And trust me, not only wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you miss the butter, but you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t taste the yogurt. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in the mix strictly as a lower-fat way of adding body to the finished product. What you will taste is chocolate, chocolate and more

chocolate, specifically dark chocolate. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s built into the cake batter, of course, but it also reappears as a melted surprise in the center of each cake. I suggest using bittersweet chocolate thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s between 60 percent and 70 percent cacao. Once the percentage gets any higher, the

chocolate begins to taste too bitter to me. Once youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re gazing with admiration at the finished product, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be surprised if you end up giving this little Valentineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day gift to yourself. Please see CAKES, page 8B

A decadent dessert â&#x20AC;&#x201D; from the microwave


â&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure if this just means the romance is gone or if Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m simply practical, but I have invented the perfect â&#x20AC;&#x153;weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been together foreverâ&#x20AC;? Valentineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day dessert. To be fair, this is also the perfect â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just had a baby and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m exhaustedâ&#x20AC;? dessert so maybe thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my excuse for not slaving in the kitchen over a complicated 12-layer death-by-chocolate sort of Valentineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s treat for my husband. This is a dessert that says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hey, I really love you and I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forgotten itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Valentineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day, but I just have to show


a blog by Megan Stuke

The whole thing is done in â&#x20AC;&#x201D; wait for it â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the microwave! Trust me here.

(or framboise if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re like me and share an affliction for raspberry) Dash of salt Whisk together in a bowl, then pour into a large mug and microwave for a minute and a half to two minutes (depending on the wattage of your microwave). I like mine a tiny bit underbaked. Top with this amazing caramel sauce. Also cooked perfectly IN THE MICROWAVE. Do not judge me. This works, and it is a gift from whatever deity you choose to follow.
