Consensus for elementary closings elusive two schools should be closed, saying that money saved could be pumped back into programs that could do the most for providing effective education districtwide. Others said that closing two schools would be too much, putting too much pressure on remaining schools and eroding support for a future bond issue — one that would be expected to address renovations, additions and construction projects that all task force members acknowledge as necessary. The group will meet again at 5:30 p.m. Monday at district headquarters, 110 McDonald

By Mark Fagan

Members of the Lawrence Elementary School Facility Vision Task Force failed to reach a consensus Monday night on whether to recommend closing one or two elementary schools next year, opting instead to decide that issue next week. Task force members spent the majority of their 90-minute meeting discussing whether they had enough support to recommend closure of two of these three schools: Cordley, Pinckney or Wakarusa Valley. Some members said that

Drive, in an attempt to reach consensus, the group’s stated plan since its appointment in May to create a “community vision” for elementaries amidst fiscal restraints. Whether the task force will be able to come up with a plan that generates enough support from among its two dozen members remains to be seen. “Ultimately, we need to have a vote,” said Steve Glass, a task force member, as about 50 observers — principals, school board members, board candidates, parents and others — looked on. “That’s the only way we’re going to be able to see what consensus is.”

Task force members did aff irm their consensus reached tentatively two weeks ago on a longer-term approach, one that would consolidating four schools into two within three to five years: Kennedy and New York, as well as Hillcrest and Sunset Hill.

City exploring glass recycling program for residents By Chad Lawhorn

Lawrence City Hall leaders are in discussions with a Kansas City-based company to start a new glass recycling program for residents. City commissioners at their meeting today will hear details of a proposal from Ripple Glass to add four new glass collections bins for residents to use around the city. “I think it is a great idea,” said City Commissioner Aron Cromwell. “The easier we can make a recycling program, the more it will be used. That is guaranteed.” Currently, the Wal-Mart Community Recycling Center and

the 12th and Haskell Bargain Center accept glass for recycling, but Cromwell said he thinks more glass would be recycled if there were Cromwell drop-off locations closer to people’s homes. The city hasn’t yet determined where the new drop off locations would be. “We would look at a map and try to distribute them throughout the city,” Cromwell said. Added convenience, though, would come with some added costs. The city is estimating there would be about $30,000 in

But the city thinks the project can eventually pay for itself. The city estimates if 100 tons of glass per month could be recycled rather than put into a landfill, the city would save about $2,300 per month in landfill fees. Commissioners are expected to consider the Ripple proposal as part of any changes that a cityappointed trash task force may recommend this spring. — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362.

Senate budget bill retains funding for special education By Scott Rothschild

T O P E K A — The Kansas Senate on Monday advanced a budget bill that would cut general state aid to schools but would add $25.3 million in the current fiscal year for special education funding to avoid losing federal aid. An amendment to strip out the special education funding and keep the bill in line with a proposal by Republican Gov. Sam Brownback failed, 16-23. The vote was seen by some as a test of Brownback’s pull in the Senate. LEGISLATURE “We have a governor who wants to work with us,” said Sen. Susan Wagle, RWichita, who voted to take out the special education funding. Sen. Ty Masterson, R-Andover, said, “It’s irresponsible at this point to add spending to a completely moving target.” But others argued that the federal government was threatening to withhold from $21 million to $26 million in special education funding if the state didn’t meet the federal government’s required “maintenance of effort” in school finance. The state has already suffered a $2 million annual penalty from the federal government, said Sen. Jean Kurtis Schodorf, R-Wichita. And other senators said school districts needed

start-up costs, including four collection bins, and construction of an outdoor “bunker” that could serve as an area to store large amounts of glass until it could be transported to Ripple’s facility in Kansas City. The key part of the deal is that Ripple would pay to transport the glass from Lawrence to Kansas City. Ripple operates a Kansas City plant that uses the glass for manufacturing fiberglass insulation. The city would transport the glass from the four bins to the bunker area, which would hold up to 35 tons of glass. The city estimates it would have about $600 in monthly costs to empty the bins and take them to the bunker area.

The Lawrence Community Shelter’s efforts to relocate to an industrial park near the Douglas County Jail have been dealt a legal setback. Douglas County District Judge Sally Pokorny on Monday afternoon dismissed a lawsuit that shelter officials had hoped would clear the way for the shelter to move from downtown to a vacant warehouse at 3701 Franklin Park Circle. At issue in the case was whether long-standing, private covenants prohibited a homeless shelter from operating in the industrial park. Pokorny did not rule directly on that issue, but Henderson rather said the shelter did not have the proper legal standing to bring the case forward. The ruling left unclear what would happen to the shelter’s plans to move from 10th and Kentucky streets in downtown. Shelter Director Loring Henderson declined to comment on the ruling or the

Consensus on closings eludes school task force members CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1A

task force discussions about potential closures for next year. Rich Minder, who is president of the Lawrence school board and co-chairman of the task force, suggested recommending closure of one school next year: Wakarusa Valley. The school, located on 10 acres just southeast of Clinton Lake, could be used as a community center for the rural area and still be owned by the district and retained for potential reopening in the future, he said. Both Cordley and Pinckney would be better candidates to remain open, Minder indicated, citing student walkability, neighborhood stability and other factors within the task force’s goals related to urban design. Besides, he noted, there’s a political angle related to keeping the two schools — particularly Pinckney, whose attendance area includes homes west of downtown, between Sixth and Ninth streets — open. “We’re going to be floating bond issues, and I want folks in Old West Lawrence behind this bond,” Minder said during the meeting. “That’s just as plain as I can put that.”


New bleachers ordered

New bleachers are on order for baseball and soccer fields at Free State and Lawrence high schools, and the softball field at Free State. Monday night, the Lawrence school board agreed to have new bleachers installed at the fields, accepting B.A. Green Construction’s offer to do the work for $486,100. Installation is scheduled to begin once spring sports are complete, and before fall sports begin. The soccer fields will get aluminum bleachers surrounded by blocks. Baseball and softball fields will get “Versa-Loc” bleachers — following the style and materials in place for seating at both schools’ football stadiums — because bids came in lower than for aluminum-surrounded-byblocks seating.

approved Monday night by the Lawrence school board. The extension takes effect July 1. The contract calls for rates to decrease 0.6 percent in year one, followed by increases ranging from 1.5 percent to 5 percent for each of the next four years.

Doll passes job review

First Student Inc. will remain the district’s provider of bus transportation for the next five years under a contract extension

Rick Doll, superintendent of the Lawrence school district, has the unanimous support of his elected bosses for his work. Monday night, members of the Lawrence school board met with Doll in executive session to review his job performance during the past six months, as specified in his contract. Their conclusion: unanimous support for Doll’s leadership skills and overall management of the district. “We are very pleased with his leadership,” said Rich Minder, board president. Doll’s contract will be up for an extension in June. Doll’s annual salary is about $153,000.

But other task force members threw their support behind closing two schools, although such talk never advanced to the point of selecting which ones. Chuck Warner, a former bank president, reasoned that closing two schools could be

achieved without overcrowding remaining schools, given the planned move of sixthgrade classes into middle schools for next year. The reduction in expenses then could be channeled into new or expanded programs — such as full-day kindergarten

districtwide — or toward filling budget holes to be opened next year and beyond by cuts in state financing.

Protecting the insides Closing schools isn’t as much about saving money, Warner said, as it is about protecting teachers, programs and other educational efforts. “It’s a decision about where cuts are going to have to be made,” he said. “I’ve become convinced that instruction, … in the long run, has a much greater effect on our kids than the building. If we say, ‘Close no schools,’ then what we’re saying is, ‘It’s got to happen inside the classroom.’ And I can’t bring myself to do that.” Warner said closing two schools next year, and then consolidating four schools into two schools within three to five years, would do the most good for the long term. Mike Neal, the task force’s moderator, told members to be ready to decide next week whether to recommend closing one or two schools next year. Two weeks ago, members already had agreed by consensus that maintaining the “status quo” was not an option. The task force’s final rec-

ommendations are due to the Lawrence school board Feb. 28. Any decisions about closing schools would be up to the board. Andrew Lees, a Pinckney parent who attended the meeting, said he was relieved that no specific decisions about recommendations were reached Monday night. “Healthy deliberation towards a better decision is better than a hasty decision based only on the numbers,” he said afterward. Jen Nelson, a leader of the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math Committee at Wakarusa Valley, noted that while most of Monday’s discussions involved money, the district’s own numbers show that closing Wakarusa Valley would save the least amount of money. The task force process — launched months ago, to be based on research and “best practices” — sure sounds more like politics at work, she said. “For some reason there’s a great push to reach a consensus that doesn’t exist,” Nelson said. “They’re pushing for a consensus that’s not there.” — Schools reporter Mark Fagan can be reached at 832-7188. 609 N.H.

Dems criticize GOP legislator over remark


GOP: Budget needs more drastic cuts Putting on the brakes after two years of big spending increases, President Barack Obama unveiled a $3.7 trillion budget plan Monday that would freeze or reduce some safety-net programs for the nation’s poor but turn aside Republican demands for more drastic cuts to shrink the government to where it was before he took office. The 10-year blueprint makes “tough choices and sacrifices,” Obama said in his official budget message. Yet the plan, which sets the stage for this week’s nasty congressional fight over cuts in the budget year that’s already more than one-third over, steers clear of deeply controversial long-term problem areas such as Social Security and Medicare. The budget relies heavily on the recovering economy, tax increases and rosy economic assumptions to estimate that the federal deficit would drop from this year’s record $1.6 trillion — an astronomical figure that requires the government to borrow 43 cents out of every dollar it spends — to about $600 billion after five years. Obama foresees a deficit of $1.1 trillion for the new budget year, which begins Oct. 1, still very high by historical benchmarks but moving in the right direction.

Volunteers deliver Valentine’s Day help


Chevron fined $9.5B for contamination An Ecuadorean judge ruled Monday in an epic environmental case that Chevron Corp. was responsible for oil drilling contamination in a wide swath of Ecuador’s northern jungle and ordered the oil giant to pay $9.5 billion in damages and cleanup costs. The amount — $8.6 billion plus a legally mandated 10 percent reparations fee — was far below the $27.3 billion award recommended by a court-appointed expert but appeared to be the highest damage award ever issued in an environmental lawsuit. But whether the plaintiffs — including indigenous groups who say their hunting and fishing grounds in Amazon River headwaters were decimated by toxic wastewater that also raised the cancer rate — can collect remains to be seen. In a statement Chevron called the decision “illegitimate and unenforceable” and said it would appeal. It has long contended it could never get a fair trial in Ecuador and has removed all assets from this politically volatile Andean country, whose leftist president, Rafael Correa, had voiced support for the plaintiffs.

The Vatican has named a tiny shrine in a small northeast Wisconsin town as a holy site. The Catholic Church has recognized the chapel in Champion near Green Bay as the location of an official sighting of the Virgin Mary. WTMJ AM says it is the only site in the country with that distinction. Green Bay Bishop David Ricken says the Virgin Mary appeared there three times to Belgium immigrant Adele Brise in 1859. Devotees have since visited the site to pray for miracles. Ricken started investigating the events and three theological experts soon picked up the work. After two years of poring over letters and documents, experts decided her claims were true. The Vatican validated those results in December.

U.S. District Judge Julie Robinson made the ruling late Friday after federal prosecutors spent the day in court arguing that Sawyer Raymond Sawyer, 59, had not complied with his probation terms based on his conduct, including current charges he faces in Lawrence Municipal Court. Federal prosecutors have said Sawyer was accused of assaulting the city’s code enforcement manager, Brian Jimenez, last October during a confrontation, and in December grabbing and pushing Rowena Hillebert, the sister of an employee who died in an industrial accident at his business in April 2010. Sawyer faces municipal court charges in two pending cases. He’s accused of occupying his business after city inspectors condemned it and for running with clenched f ists toward Jimenez during a confrontation. He was not charged for the confrontation with Hillebert, who cleans MagnaGro’s business office, 811 E. 23rd St. Sawyer was on probation after he pleaded guilty in federal court Please see MAGNAGRO, page 5A

Mystery of wild cat remains with carcass missing By Chad Lawhorn

It is the case of the missing wild cat and, no, we’re not talking about all those players who have left the Kansas State basketball team. On Monday — the day of the KU-KSU basketball game — city officials weren’t sure what had happened to the carcass of a dead feline that some had speculated would provide proof of a much-rumored mountain lion

that roams west Lawrence. But a spokesman for the Lawrence Police Department, whose officers found the carcass in the 2200 block of Bob Billings Parkway on Sunday evening, said he didn’t think the remains were going to solve the mountain lion mystery. “The officer said he’s not an expert on it, but it looked like a bobcat to him,” said Sgt. Matt Sarna. But, it appears, we’ll never know. Sarna said the officers

moved the carcass to the median of the road, and asked for the city’s sanitation department to come pick up the remains. But when sanitation workers arrived Monday morning to pick up the carcass, it was gone, a spokesman in the sanitation department said. That likely will allow some to contend that indeed mountain lions do roam the western hills of Lawrence — a contention several naturalists question. Bobcats — unlike mountain

lions — are not overly uncommon in parts of western Lawrence. Just ask neighbors of the area. “Between the bobcats and the deer, we have herds of them out here,” said Kylee Manahan, who lives in the area off Terrace Road. “We were sad to hear that one got hit.” Or did it? — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362.

Pay Attention to Hypertension

Understanding the Challenge of High Blood Pressure Tuesday, February 15, 6:30-7:30 pm, Lawrence Memorial Hospital Join Dr. Zabel as he discusses the diagnosis and management of hypertension (high blood pressure). This disease affects about one in three adults and many do not know they have it. It is often called the “silent killer” because it usually has no warning signs or symptoms and can greatly increase the risk for heart and kidney disease and stroke. This presentation is free.

Who is the welldressed, tall young man who bears a vague facial resemblance to Kobe Bryant and sits at the end of KU’s bench during home games? Is he a graduate assistant coach?


No. The young man you are referring to probably is Justin Wesley, a 6-foot-8, walk-on transfer from Lamar University. Wesley averaged 1.2 points and 1.3 rebounds in 23 games for Lamar last season. Per NCAA rules, he must sit out the season as a red-shirt. Wesley is related to a former KU star basketball player, but it’s not Walt Wesley. He is the brother of Keith Langford, who is playing professionally in Russia.

LAW ENFORCEMENT REPORT • An employee of The Buckle, 805 Mass., reported to Lawrence police Friday evening that between 6 p.m. and 6:08 p.m., someone had stolen 16 pairs of men’s Big Star jeans, valued at $1,600. • A 47-year-old Lawrence man reported to police that someone stole his Glock 22 40-caliber pistol, valued at $750, sometime between Jan. 12 and Feb. 12 from the 400 block of Eldridge Street. • A 34-year-old Lawrence man reported to police Feb. 9 that someone had stolen several items valued at $2,130 from the 3500 block of Tillerman Drive. Items taken included curtain sets, a television cabinet, storm doors and exterior window screens. The items were taken Feb. 1. • A 20-year-old Topeka man was arrested Monday on a probable cause warrant for the April 2010 rape of someone who was mentally incapable as well as failure to comply in district court. • Lawrence police detectives have arrested two Wichita men

who are suspects in a December robbery of three Kansas University students at a Louisiana Street apartment. According to jail records, the two suspects, 21-year-old Jerome DeShaun Tucker and 20year-old D’andre Will Williams, were arrested on warrants in Wichita and taken to the Douglas County Jail Friday evening. Douglas County prosecutors charged the defendants each with three counts of aggravated robbery and one count of aggravated burglary in the Dec. 2 incident in the 1100 block of Louisiana Street. At the time, police said three women were in their third-floor apartment about 12:30 a.m. when they heard a knock at the door and two men entered the apartment. One had a gun, and the suspects made the women go into one room while another suspect searched the apartment. Prosecutors allege the suspects took a laptop computer from the apartment. A judge set each defendant’s bond at $50,000.

Court delivers blow CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1A

next steps for the shelter, since he had not yet seen the decision issued by the court. Steve Glass — a Lawrence businessman and member of the industrial park’s board of trustees who have argued the covenants prevent a homeless shelter — said he hoped the shelter would re-open its search for a location. “I think there are probably other locations that would work for them,” Glass said. “But the reality is they perhaps need to change their approach a little bit about how they run the shelter, and their approach in how they are trying to find a location.” Shelter leaders filed the lawsuit in an effort to clear up any question about whether the shelter could locate in the vacant warehouse. The business park’s board of trustees have argued the covenants allow only business, industrial and governmental uses to locate in the park. They contend, among other issues, that the shelter is prohibited because it is a residential use. Pokorny did not decide that key issue. Instead, the judge said that because the shelter had not yet completed the $2

million purchase of the building — and doesn’t yet have all of its bank financing finalized — the lawsuit was premature. “This court agrees with LCS it would be helpful and convenient to know how the court would rule if and when LCS is in a position to purchase the property, however, this court is not in the business of issuing advisory opinions,” Pokorny wrote. If the shelter is unable to move to the new location, questions about the shelter’s future in downtown also are likely to arise. The shelter’s special use permit that allows it to operate downtown is set to expire this spring. When city commissioners last renewed the permit — over the objection of neighbors — they did so with the expectation that the shelter would be well on its way to a new location when the permit came back up for renewal. Whether city commissioners will be willing to issue another longterm permit for the shelter at the northeast corner of 10th and Kentucky streets location is uncertain. — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362.

to know now if they were going to get the money in order to better plan. Of the 16 who voted for the amendment to take out the $25.3 million, all were Republicans. Of the 23 opposed to the amendment and wanted to keep the money in, there were 15 Republicans and all eight Democrats. The Senate was expected to give final approval today. That would set up negotiations with the House, which passed its own plan that doesn’t include the increase in special education funding. The Senate plan would reduce general state aid to schools by about $60 per student, while the House plan

cuts deeper at $75 per student. Another difference between the House and Senate bills is that the House plan includes a provision that would cut by 7.5 percent the pay of legislators, state officers, judges and regents employees making more than $100,000 per year. But some critics of that have said the cut to high-wage state employees at regents institutions would chase away top-flight researchers and doctors at KU and other schools. The Senate bill does not apply the pay cut to regents employees. — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

BRIEFLY Holland, Francisco in Democratic leadership TOPEKA — Two Douglas County state senators have secured Democratic leadership positions. Sen. Tom Holland, D-Baldwin City, was elected minority whip, and Sen. Marci Francisco, D-Lawrence, was elected caucus chair, which had been previously held by Holland. “When important amendments are offered, it’s important to have someone who understands the bills and will ensure every member of the caucus is present to vote,” said Senate Democratic Leader Anthony Hensley of Topeka. “Senator Holland was a natural fit for this position,” he said. Hensley said Francisco’s “enthusiasm and general knowledge of the issues has proven she’s ready to serve” as caucus chair. “I have full confidence in her ability to help lead our caucus in a positive direction,” he said. Hensley was re-elected leader and Sen. Laura Kelly of Topeka was made assistant leader. The changes were made by acclamation on Monday. The assistant minority leader position opened up when Janis Lee left the Senate to join the Kansas Court of Tax Appeals. There are eight Democrats in the Kansas Senate, compared with 32 Republicans.

Basehor-Linwood keeps high school honors Basehor-Linwood High School students can still aim to be named valedictorian after a school board decision Monday. The Basehor-Linwood school board voted 7-0 at its monthly meeting Monday to continue to recognize valedictorians and salutatorians at the high school's graduation ceremonies. In December, school officials had proposed shifting to a recognition of the top 10 percent of students by class rank rather than using the traditional valedictorian and salutatorian designations. Officials said then that the designations had become somewhat outdated in modern schools, and that a new weighted-grade class rank system based on honors courses may create scheduling difficulties for students competing for the valedictorian honor.

No-contest pleaded for aggravated robbery An 18-year-old Lawrence man pleaded no contest Monday to attempted aggravated robbery and conspiracy to commit robbery in connection with a September robbery at a south Lawrence apartment. District Judge Peggy Kittel convicted Joshua Self of the two charges Monday morning after his plea in the case. She will sentence him March 14. Two co-defendants, Christopher Self, 20, and Douglas Bittinger, 19, are both expected to enter pleas in the case later. Prosecutors accuse the three men of participating in a scheme to use a gun to rob

two 20-year-old Lawrence men on Sept. 6 at an apartment at The Exchange, 3100 Ousdahl Road. One victim was knocked unconscious and suffered a head wound.

LAWRENCE JOURNAL-WORLD ● ● Tuesday, February 15, 2011



Welcome surprise? It’s fine to look at the possibilities, but city officials should be careful not to undercut the will of the voters with changes to the library project they approved last year.


surprise ending can be a pleasant conclusion to a good book. A surprise ending to the city’s $18 million expansion of the Lawrence Public Library might not be so welcome. City commissioners should remember that as they enter tricky territory on the library expansion. City Manager David Corliss has recommended commissioners consider adding several new elements to the library project. The largest would be an additional level of parking to a new garage that will be built just south of the library. A price tag isn’t yet known, but it could cost about $1 million to add 50 to 70 parking spaces. Corliss said that money would be over and above the $18 million that voters approved for the library and parking garage in November. Commissioners recently agreed to have the architects include the extra level in the design, but to do so in a way that it can be removed from the design if construction costs are deemed to be too high. That’s reasonable enough. It is encouraging that the city manager is thinking long-term about downtown’s parking needs. But it also is important to recognize the potential pitfalls of expanding the library project. Voters in November approved the library project — somewhat narrowly, about 55 percent to 45 percent — based on figures that showed the project would increase the city’s mill levy by 2 mills. If at the end of the day the city adds on several other elements and the mill levy is something greater than 2 mills, voters will have a reason to feel burned. More than city dollars are at stake. The city’s reputation with taxpayers also is on the line. The Lawrence school district’s reputation has suffered because of its decision to use leftover bond money to build several athletic fields. That decision may make it more difficult for the school district to win future bond elections for needed projects. The city doesn’t want to find itself in that boat. City, county and school officials should be careful not to get the reputation of playing the “bait and switch” game to get undisclosed add-ons to costly projects. There’s not much harm in considering the options for more downtown parking, but commissioners should go into this with the right mindset. First, they should not consider raising the mill levy to pay for any added extras. Second, they should not be hell-bent on spending the entire $18 million approved by voters. The bond issue gives the city the authority to issue $18 million in bonds. The city can always choose to issue less. An $18 million price tag for a 20,000-square-foot library addition, a refurbishing of the existing 45,000 square foot library, and the construction of a 250-space parking garage is a substantial amount of money. City officials should be vigorous in questioning architects on how to accomplish all they promised voters but for less money. Some local residents still question just how careful city commissioners were in studying the costs and benefits of the library project. Lawrence taxpayers will be counting on city commissioners to make this right. City commissioners hold the pen here. For good or bad, they’ll write the ending to this story. LAWRENCE

Reform in Egypt faces huge obstacles As Cairo erupted in jubilation Friday over the announcement that Hosni Mubarak had stepped down, I remembered another celebration of revolution I witnessed in 1979. I was visiting some Syrian communists in a rickety wooden house in the heart of the old city of Damascus as they gathered around a crackly short-wave radio set and broke out the whiskey. They were celebrating the return of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini to Tehran that very day; they believed this marked the start of a revolution that would end with leftists taking over the Iranian government. Many young Iranian idealists thought the same. Of course, things developed very differently. The charismatic Khomeini and the well-organized Shiite clergy wiped out the overconfident Iranian left (and liberals) and created a theocracy. I raise this example not because I think Egypt will become another Iran, but as a caution: Revolutions often wind up producing results far different from the hopes of the rebels who make them.

Admirable organizers If the incredible young Egyptians who conducted a nonviolent revolution with Facebook and Twitter can recognize this danger, they will be better prepared to keep their revolution on track. These young people deserve our sincere admiration. Anyone who knows Egypt understands the deep and justified emotions that drove them. They toppled a corrupt and sclerotic regime that had proved incapable of reforming its economy or giving its people any say in their future.

Trudy Rubin

So the challenge to the “brilliant young team that organized this revolt is to apply its talents to the second phase: organizing the political structure to carry out the reforms the protesters demanded.”

Moreover, this was most definitely not an Islamic uprising. Egypt’s best-organized Islamist movement, the Muslim Brotherhood, was not involved in organizing the demonstrations and joined the rebellion late in the day. Most interesting, a new poll commissioned by the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, and conducted in Cairo and Alexandria, found that just 15 percent of those polled approved of the Brotherhood. Its leaders got barely 1 percent of the vote in a presidential straw poll. Asked to pick national priorities, only 12 percent chose sharia (Islamic law) over democracy and economic development. When asked why the uprising had happened, 30 percent each said corruption, unemployment, and economic conditions. Only 7 percent cited the concern that the regime was “not Islamic enough.” That’s the good news. But the

hardest part of this revolution is yet to come. In the still-fluid Egyptian situation, the army has essentially taken over. There’s no history of Mideast military regimes turning over to democrats, and we don’t know whether these generals will let political reforms proceed. If they do, however, the talented professionals and young executives who rallied the crowds must now confront a far greater organizing challenge: how to develop political parties that can deliver the reforms that Egyptians want.

Challenges ahead The obstacles are huge: First, Middle Eastern regimes, Egypt included, have never permitted independent political parties to flourish. The parties that developed in years past were mostly based on tribe, or sect, or discredited ideologies such as Arab socialism or communism. More independent Egyptian parties have long since withered or been smothered. The current parliament is made up almost entirely of the ruling party, which had exclusive access to the government trough. The opposition must now figure out how to organize itself, and to produce new and competent leaders. That’s assuming, of course, that the army officer class, which benefited mightily from Mubarak’s economic cookie jar, permits those leaders to emerge. Second, the revolutionaries must now contend with a wave of inflated expectations. Having watched the revolution unfold, Egyptian workers and youths will want to see results — faster than they can be delivered. Their attitudes may sour if they don’t

see the goods. And third, there is the Muslim Brotherhood, currently banned as a political party, but likely to take part in any democratic process. Although its popularity is limited, and the army will watch it closely, the Brotherhood has one big advantage: It already has a well-oiled organizing mechanism through the mosque. It has no charismatic leaders and could never win a majority of seats in parliament, but it could win a solid bloc. This could provide substantial clout if other opposition parties fragment and quarrel with each other. So the challenge to the brilliant young team that organized this revolt is to apply its talents to the second phase: organizing the political structure to carry out the reforms the protesters demanded.

U.S. should step up Although the odds are long, this is not impossible, especially if they convince the Egyptian public that — unlike the Mubarak regime — they care about the dignity of ordinary people. After a few fumbles, the Obama team has a chance to regain the good graces of Egypt’s young rebels. It should do more than press the army to permit voting; it should offer technical aid to help develop the parties and institutions that make elections work. The leftists I visited in Damascus were lost in unrealistic dreams, as were their compatriots in Tehran. But Egypt’s young rebels can make more history (and the West can help) if they keep their feet on the ground. — Trudy Rubin is a columnist and editorial board member for the Philadelphia Inquirer.



From the Lawrence Daily World for Feb. 15, 1911: YEARS “The deeper AGO County Attorney IN 1911 Riling’s probe sinks into the tenderloin district of Lawrence, the more startling become the revelations of vice. In a raid on a resort at 817 Vermont street last night the authorities captured a complete dice loading outfit together with another opium ‘layout.’ The little outfit for ‘plugging the bones’ and making the little gambling devices ‘dizzy’ was found carefully concealed behind a bureau in the room occupied by Mrs. Charlotte Coleman. It comprised a tiny vise, steel drill, phial of quick silver, paste for concealing the boring, and thirty-five dice.” — Compiled by Sarah St. John

Depot vision To the editor: I read with dismay the editorial “Depot decision” in the Feb. 9 issue of the Journal-World. Many communities throughout the country have successfully acquired, restored and reused former railroad properties with the assistance of grant funds for the benefit of their communities. These grants usually require a relatively small amount of local matching funds and represent a minimal amount of risk for local taxpayers. The suggestion in the editorial that the city of Lawrence would be making a “$600,000 gamble” is not an accurate portrayal of the situation at hand. The fact that the depot is still being used as a train station gives the city an excellent chance to qualify for and receive federal transportation enhancement grant funds administered through the Kansas Department of Transportation for the restoration effort. A restored depot would not just benefit a few of the “depot’s fans” as the editorial suggests. A properly restored depot could be developed as a transportation hub for the city where rail, bus, taxi, bicycle and pedestrian traff ic could all cross paths to improve mobility for all Lawrence citizens. At the same

time, we would be improving our image via this gateway to our community and preserving an important part of our town’s transportation and architectural history. The acquisition of the depot should move ahead as a needed investment in the present and future transportation needs of Lawrence. Characterizing these efforts as an unwarranted gamble shows a lack of vision and understanding of the potential that a restored depot has for improving the livability and mobility of our city. Gary Knudsen, Lawrence

Selective cuts To the editor: House Majority Leader Siegfried, R-Olathe, is reported on the front page of Sunday’s paper as saying “we don’t cut (school budgets) for fun, we’re cutting out of necessity.” While an article on page 12A of Sunday’s paper reports that Gov. Brownback has approved at least $200 million for highway improvements for 2011. Clearly the necessity for not spending state money applies to our children but not to our cars. The actions of elected officials in the state government show us that it is more important to drive

on bigger and broader highways than it is to educate our kids, the future voters of Kansas. Pat Kehde, Lawrence

Seniors unwired To the editor: I agree with John Glassman that home-use technologies should enhance the health care and mobility of seniors. But I question whether an “online presence” will offset the loneliness and isolation seniors may experience at home. While estimates vary, the likelihood of developing dementia is quite high in our late 60s, 70s and 80s. So folks who have successfully accessed the wireless and broadband infrastructure across the state may lose the ability to do so. And you know, there are many seniors who have not developed computer skills and don’t much care to do so. I wonder if the Internet will ever replace the comfort of human touch, the sound of a human voice and the sense of community that comes with interacting with others. Senior centers offering reasonably priced day-care programs, “dementia proof” musical activities, quilting rooms, daily exercise classes, arts and crafts and, most importantly, staff to provide

validation and personalized assistance is what I want in my dotage. Please, don’t leave me home alone wired to monitors and sitting in front of a blank screen. Maria Vincent, Lawrence

Issue of respect To the editor: After seeing the letter in the Feb. 9 paper about showing respect to the president, I cannot keep quiet any longer. Respect was not shown to my president, George W. Bush, when they stood along by the courthouse carrying signs referring to Bush as a “liar and murderer.” It broke my heart. You know what they say: What goes around comes around.

Task force to consider trash, recycling changes By Chad Lawhorn

Talk trash and do it fast. Those are expected to be the marching orders for a new city task force that will consider major changes to the city’s trash and recycling programs. “This is a task force that will be in a hurry,” said City Commissioner Aron Cromwell, who hopes to be appointed as the chair of the new task force. City commissioners are expected to formally create the task force at their meeting today. Cromwell said its work needs to be completed by May 15 in order to give city commissioners a chance to include any recommended changes in the 2012 budget, which will be crafted this summer. As for what those changes may be, they could be significant, including everything from new, automated trucks to turning over the city-operated system to a private contractor. Cromwell said the task force will look at all options, including privatization.

“That’s going to be looked at for sure,” Cromwell said. “To be perfectly honest, I CITY have reserCOMMISSION vations about privatization going into this, but I want to get the information.” Other issues that could be discussed by the task force include: ● Automation. Currently, most city trash trucks operate with a three-person crew. But there are truck systems that use automated arms or special lifts that could cut the crew size to one or two people. But those systems likely would require customers to use special plastic carts instead of traditional cans or bags. Staff members also have cautioned it could require changes in on-street parking availability for some neighborhoods. ● Rate changes. Several communities — especially those that require carts — are changing their rates to charge people based on how much

trash they throw away. For example, people could rent a 35-gallon, 65-gallon or 95-gallon cart from the city. People who rent a 35-gallon cart would pay less than a person who rents a 95-gallon cart. The catch: You must fit all your trash into the cart. You wouldn’t be able to set out extra bags, although some cities allow that, for an extra charge. ● Curbside recycling. Cromwell said if the city begins charging people based on how much trash they generate, then the city also needs to make more recycling options available. “When we look at this, we’re going to have to look at recycling options,” Cromwell said. “But a big question becomes, who is going to take care of that?” Currently several private companies offer curbside recycling services in the city. But there also has been discussion of creating a cityoperated service that would be included in monthly bill of all residents, whether they used the service or not. Commissioners at today’smeeting are expected to for-

mally create the task force, but they do not yet have a list of people to appoint to the task force. Cromwell said he’ll lobby for a small task force that is heavy on city officials. But he said the task force would hold open meetings and would have community forums during March and April to get feedback from residents about what they want in terms of trash and recycling services. “We’ll want to hear from everybody,” Cromwell said. Commissioners meet at 6:35 p.m. today at City Hall. — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362. Follow him at

KANSAS FORWARD MARCUS MORRIS (22) TURNS AWAY as the Kansas State student section rushes the court following the Jayhawks’ 84-68 loss to the Wildcats. K-State stunned the top-ranked Jayhawks Monday at Bramlage Coliseum.

Jayhawks rise to No. 1, fall — hard — to ’Cats By Gary Bedore

MANHATTAN — The new No. 1 team in the country didn’t play like the best squad in the land on Monday night in Bramlage Coliseum. “The No. 1 ranking? After watching that? Geez ... we may fall out of the polls next week,” Kansas University basketball coach Bill Self said after the Jayhawks’ 84-68 loss to unrated Kansas State.

The game came on the same day KU ascended to No. 1 in both the AP and USA Today/ESPN polls. “That wasn’t a very good team playing tonight,” Self added after KU’s worst loss to K-State since a 17-pointer (70-53) on Jan. 23, 1982, in Manhattan. The loss was also the Jayhawks’ largest margin of defeat overall since a 19-pointer at Texas Tech on March 4, 2009 (84-65). “Let’s call it like it is: That was

a beatdown,” Self added. “I thought they controlled the game from the opening tip. We were on our heels.” Self was able to keep his sense of humor after his Jayhawks (242 overall, 9-2 Big 12) were burned by KSU’s Jacob Pullen to the tune of a career-high 38 points. The senior guard hit nine of 17 shots, including f ive of six threes. He made 15 of 19 free throws en route to the 12th-best single-game scoring output

against KU. It was the most points against KU since Michael Beasley of KSU scored 39 versus the Jayhawks on March 1, 2008, in Lawrence. “You look at it from a positive standpoint, we held them to 46 points if Jacob didn’t play. That’s a good thing,” Self cracked. Pullen’s 38 points were, in fact, the most points against a topranked team since Houston’s Elvin Hayes potted 39 for Houston versus UCLA in 1968. North

Carolina’s Antawn Jamison had 35 versus Duke in 1997-98. “Our play against him was poor,” Self said, adding, “He was fabulous. I don’t know that kid very well. He’s got 38 points on national TV against a team that doesn’t deserve it, but is ranked No. 1 in the country, against their arch-rivals and he defers to not shoot the ball to get 40 ... (that’s) class.”

Recurring twin trouble especially disturbing

KANSAS COACH BILL SELF FACEPALMS late in the second half.

Your Security. Our Priority.

MANHATTAN — If it merely had been a case of the Kansas University basketball team not having the humility to handle the prosperity of holding the No. 1 ranking in the nation, no big deal. KU won’t have that problem again, after getting bullied, 8468, Monday night in Bramlage Coliseum by a Kansas State team that rode its star to a season-saving victory. The Jayhawks (24-2) won’t play as No. 1 anymore, and the stink of such an awful performance ought to linger long enough to carry them into the postseason with enough sense to know if they don’t bring their best every night, they won’t last long.

Tom Keegan

The memory of a sea of purple spilling onto the court will create an edge, always a good thing to bring into March Madness. It’s the threat of a recurring, self-defeating trait resurfacing at another inopportune time,

the annoying sub-plot of an otherwise successful season, that could undermine KU’s attempt to get to Houston, site of the Final Four. That, of course, would be the penchant for one of the Morris twins to act impulsively and get whistled for an intentional foul. It didn’t hurt his team when Markieff Morris got called for one against Missouri’s Justin Safford. Against K-State, Markieff’s arm made contact with Jacob Pullen’s face, which didn’t slow the senior guard from Chicago enough to keep him from torching KU with 38 points. By that point in the game,

Markieff’s twin, Marcus, had been whistled for two fouls. Markieff’s second foul, the intentional one, gave him a seat next to his brother. Thomas Robinson, recovering from knee surgery, wasn’t there to bail them out. That chore went to Jeff Withey, who couldn’t cut it defensively, and Mario Little, who was hell-bent on shooting Kansas back into it and kept firing blanks. On a night Kansas was in too big a hurry all game, nobody hurried more than Little. Oh well, at least he led the team with five rebounds. And he’s Please see JAYHAWKS, page 3B

NBA Kings fine Cousins for fight

LOS ANGELES — Gino Cimoli, a Dodger outfielder in Brooklyn and Los Angeles who was the first major-league batter on the West Coast when the Dodgers and Giants moved to California in 1958, has died. He was 81. The Dodgers opened their first season in California on April 15, 1958, against the Giants at Seals Stadium in San Francisco. Cimoli, who was born in San Francisco, struck out against the Giants’ Ruben Gomez to start the game. The Giants won, 8-0.

KSU’s Pullen torches Kansas By Jesse Newell

MANHATTAN — Bill Self and Jacob Pullen had a compliment for each other in the hallway outside the locker rooms following Kansas State’s 84-68 victory over Kansas University on Monday night. Self, KU’s coach, told Pullen, K-State star guard, that it was classy move to pull the ball back out and pass it in the game’s final minute when he had a chance at 40 points. KSU’s guard responded quickly. “I told him I hate that triangle-and-two (defense) that he runs on me every year,” Pullen said with a laugh. Gimmicky defenses, different defenders — nothing worked for KU on Monday night against Pullen, who scored a career-high 38 points on 9-for-17 shooting. The 6-foot senior guard was so hot that after missing one free throw, KU guard Brady Morningstar leaned over to him. “You owe me four more of those,” Morningstar joked. Pullen ended 5-for-6 from three-point range and 15-for19 from the free-throw line.


“Shots were just going in,” Pullen said. “I felt good about how we were playing as a team.” Pullen said he was reflecting on his team’s recent losses to KU the night before while lying on his bed. Still haunted by costly turnovers in his team’s loss to Colorado on Saturday — “I had nightmares about that for a few nights,” Pullen said — the senior was encouraged by his brothers Byron and Joseph. Both texted him with a simple message: Move on. “It’s like a job. You wake up in the morning, and you don’t have a good day at work, you’ve got to go back to work. Forget about it,” Pullen said. “That’s what I tried to do.” Pullen said he felt a different energy from his team in Monday’s game. “Last time we played (KU), I just felt that as a team, we were emotionless,” Pullen said. “I felt like we just went there to get blown out and get out of there.” Three years after Pullen and the Wildcats upset No. 1 KU, 84-75, Pullen once again celebrated the victory by standing on the scorer’s table above a throng of KSU fans.

KANSAS GUARD TYREL REED, FRONT, HEADS TO THE BUCKET against Kansas State forward Jordan Henriquez-Roberts during the second half. KU fell to K-State, 84-68, Monday at Bramlage Coliseum.

NOTEBOOK Mario Little on the loss “I was surprised at our turnovers (18). We never got in the flow of our offense. We started our offense at halfcourt. We couldn’t execute basically the whole game.” Big 12 race KU is two games behind Texas in the league race. “I mean, our focus is to be Big 12 champs,” Little said. “Every day when we break (huddle) we say, ‘Big 12 champs.’ After the regular season we say, ‘National champs.’ We’ll put our heads down and keep working. We still have NCAA ... that’s our main goal.” Tyrel Reed on KU’s play “Obviously we are upset with the way we played, but give K-State credit. They caused us to play bad. I don’t think we came in prepared and in the mind-set that we needed to have. We knew it’d be a tough game because this is always a tough place to play. But we are not going to panic. There are obviously things we need to do better. So we will go watch film and get ready for our next game.”

ing versus Missouri and 16 points off 7-of-12 shooting with 11 rebounds against the Cyclones. Morris also earned Big 12 Player of the Week honors Jan. 17 and Nov. 29.

Poll topper KU on Monday moved to No. 1 in the AP and ESPN/USA Today polls. KU has been ranked No. 1 at some point in five of coach Bill Self’s eight seasons at KU. Tidbits on being No. 1: This marks the 19th time in the Self era that KU is No. 1 in both polls. ... This marks the 34thstraight week KU has been ranked No. 7 or higher in both polls. In that span, KU has been ranked in the top five 30 times. Under Self, KU has been ranked in the top 10 in 95 AP polls and 98 ESPN/USA Today polls.


Self, in fact, stopped Pullen in a Bramlage Coliseum hallway to tell P ullen how impressed he was with his sportsmanship. “We defended him poorly, but he was fabulous,” Self repeated. The Jayhawks fell behind 18-10 and 30-16, as well as 4233 at the half, but trailed by just five points (46-41) with 16:25 left, yet a 19-6 KSU run took care of that. The performance of the Wildcats (17-9, 5-6) made some wonder if this was all about KU feeling the pressure of being No. 1. It was the first time KU immediately lost on the same day as being tapped No. 1 since 1994 in Lawrence when KSU beat the Jayhawks, 68-64. “I don’t think where we were ranked had anything to do with how we played,” Self said. “Pullen had a lot more to do with how we played than any ranking. Noted KU’s Tyrel Reed (14 points): “Obviously we were No. 1 and didn’t protect it well. We were not trying to protect it. Give credit to K-State. We couldn’t match them tonight. We had some opportunities the second half. We cut it to five and didn’t do anything with it. We turned it over or took a bad shot. That was our ammo.” KU also had a pair of unfortunate plays. Markieff Morris was called for an intentional foul in the first half, apparently swinging an elbow, and Elijah Johnson was called for a technical foul for yapping after dunking with the Jayhawks down, 71-57. “I mean, definitely those things have to be addressed,” Reed said. “We have to be a more mature team than that.” KU juniors Marcus Morris had 13 points and four turnovers, Markieff Morris three points and no boards and Tyshawn Taylor eight points and six turnovers. “Our three junior starters all had rough nights, without question,” Self said. “I will not put a positive spin on this. We played our in-

state rival in their building in a great atmosphere, and we didn’t respond,” Self added. “I heard Frank (Martin, KSU coach) say that when he’s come to Allen. I probably feel the same way Frank did leaving Allen (after KU’s 90-66 win on Jan. 29) as I do Bramlage tonight. They were without question the better team from the opening tip.” Josh Selby (stress reaction in foot) had four points in 11 minutes. He was playing for the first time in four games. “I wasn’t going to even play Josh,” Self said. “We had nobody else we could go to. He only practiced one day. Hopefully he can get back in the flow and be a contributor in a big way.”

Dear Treading: You don’t know the circumstances of this marriage or even if it’s true. It is not your place to inform his parents or wife. We know you want to do the right thing and prevent a catastrophe, but frankly, it will be hurtful no matter what you say, and it won’t change a thing. Mr. Hawaii

One of the great risks and rewards of appearing on television is that audiences begin to strongly identify actors with a particular character. It’s great to be remembered, but that can also lead to typecasting. It will probably take some time for the cast of “Lost” to live down their iconic and memorable roles. That goes double for Michael Emerson, who was so enigmatic, manipulative, creepy and occasionally vulnerable as the sneaky Ben Linus. Look for Emerson on tonight’s “Parenthood” (9 p.m., NBC) as a character with Asperger’s syndrome who hosts a birthday party for Max. ● Now it’s not enough to merely appear on a reality-television show; you have to concoct gossip-spewing events involving other media that can be “captured” on your realityTV show. On “Joan and Melissa Know Best” (8 p.m., WE), Melissa bristles when Joan shares a little too much information on a morning radio show. Will this TMI end up on “TMZ”? No, but gossip king Perez Hilton does show up for high tea! Will all of this tension sunder links between mother and daughter forever? Didn’t these two see what “American Chopper” did to the Teutuls? Before folks like Perez Hilton became merely part of a celebrity’s publicity machine, gossip columnists were figures to be courted and feared. We may never go back to the days of “Sweet Smell of Success,” but tonight’s “Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel” (9 p.m., HBO) looks at one website that has been unafraid to spill the beans on sports celebrities. Correspondent Andrea Kremer visits the offices of, a news-breaking, dirtdishing organization that declares itself to be “Without access, discretion or favor.” In other sports-scandal news, “Real Sports” prof iles disgraced BALCO steroids figure Victor Conte and pays a visit to the home of boxer and celebrity oddity Mike Tyson. ● Given the problematic, not to mention depressing, aspects of human behavior, it’s comforting to tune in the concluding night of “The 135th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show” (7 p.m., USA). The sporting, terrier and working groups get their moment in the spotlight before the “Best in Show” title is bestowed on one particular dog.

JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS For Tuesday, Feb. 15: This year, you will be juggling many responsibilities with your ability to be extremely innovative. The question might be where it would be most effective to streamline the process. If you are single, you could meet a fun playmate to share with in the spring. If you are attached, the two of you do a lot more sharing and bond even more strongly. A Cancer in your daily life adds to the quality of your life.

The Stars Show the Kind of Day You'll Have: 5Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult Aries (March 21-April 19) ★★★ Stay centered. Your time will come.

The spirit of cooperation is renewed. Still, you find others to be full of surprises. Honor each person's uniqueness. Tonight: Only where there are crowds.

Dear Annie: My 19-year-old daughter, “Nadia,” dated a sweet guy for three years. They broke up when he moved to Hawaii to “see the world.” For three years, he dated no one else and expected Nadia to do the same. However, after 18 months of separation, she decided to enjoy her life. A year ago, they rekindled their relationship over the phone and decided to get married. When “Mr. Hawaii” found out she had dated someone else in his absence, he abruptly called it off, once again breaking her heart. He then asked her to wait for him to get his head together. Apparently, he was questioning whether he might be gay. This time, she said no. With our encouragement, she concentrated on herself and her education. Eight months ago, Nadia met an absolutely wonderful, stable guy, and they are slowly building a future together. The problem is, Mr. Hawaii has been in touch, asking if she would reconsider their relationship. She told him he would always have a place in her heart, but that’s it. Within days of their last conversation, we were shocked to find out that he had already married a girl

This was our season,” said Jardine, who finished with nine points, six assists, f ive rebounds and f ive of the Orange’s 13 steals. “We put ourselves into this hole and we have to dig ourselves out.” Syracuse hadn’t lost four in a row at home since 1962-63, four years before coach Jim Boeheim enrolled, and has won 12 of the last 13 in the series with the Mountaineers (16-9, 7-6), who dropped out of the Top 25 earlier Monday.

“It’s a game of runs,” said West Virginia’s Kevin Jones, who was held to a seasonlow four points on 2-of-8 shooting. “We knew that they were going to come on a run. It’s all about how we handled it, and we didn’t handle it well. We kept on turning the ball over, which gave them some easy shots. That was the game plan — not turn the ball over and control the game with our offense. We didn’t do either one (at the end).”
