School board cooling on consolidation plan By Christine Metz cmetz@ljworld.com

The majority of Lawrence school board members acknowledge that changes in state funding and enrollment numbers could be enough to persuade them not to shut

down any elementary schools. The school board has charged the Central and East Lawrence Elementary School Consolidation Working Group to recommend a way to reduce six elementary schools — Cordley, Hillcrest, Kennedy, New York, Pinck-

ney and Sunset Hill — down to three or four within the next two years. The group will present its recommendation to the board Feb. 27. At Monday’s working group meeting, members decided not to recommend what specific schools should close

because they said the majority of school board members no longer backed that charge. School board members Rick Ingram, Keith Diaz Moore, Randy Masten and Vanessa Sanburn all said that circumstances have changed since the working group be-

gan meeting in September. Ingram has been skeptical of the process from the beginning. “I haven’t seen anything that has reduced that skepticism. In fact, it has been just the opposite. New information has changed things Please see SCHOOLS, page 2A Ingram

‘Every bit of groceries you get helps’

Private group shows interest in building facility By Chad Lawhorn clawhorn@ljworld.com

PEOPLE LINE UP IN THEIR CARS for the Just Food mobile food pantry distribution, which occurs the second Monday of every month at 1200 E. 11th St. The pantry distributes seven to 10 tons of food, including fresh vegetables, bread and dairy products, in about 90 minutes.

Line forms early for fresh, free food By Christine Metz cmetz@ljworld.com

“An early riser” was the answer Kathy Coffey gave for why she had been parked for nearly three hours outside of the Just Food warehouse Monday morning. Coffey arrived at 8 a.m. and was the second car in a long line of vehicles waiting for the food pantry’s monthly mobile distribution, which began at 11 a.m. On most days, Coffey said arriving by 8 a.m. would put her further back in line. But she wasn’t the only one slowed by the inch of snow that fell that morning. “I figured I’d be late,” Coffey said. “It’s not unheard of for there to be cars way beyond the tracks.”

On the second Monday of every month, Just Food hosts its mobile food pantry at 1200 E. 11th St. Despite the snow, more than 50 cars were waiting before the pantry opened on Monday. “I love how the operation doesn’t stop because of bad weather,” Just Food Executive Director Jeremy Farmer said. “People are cold, and they are hungry.” Farmer has seen cars line up as early as 6 a.m. and clients walk from miles away. “These are the kind of things that keep us going,” he said. “We are committed to filling in the gaps.” The mobile food pantry distributes seven to 10 tons of food in the 90 minutes it takes for cars to filter through the warehouse’s staging area. On

most days, more than 100 vehicles drive through the line and pick up enough food to feed more than 750 people. On Monday, volunteers were handing out tomatoes, cucumbers, salad mixes, fruit, bread, butter, cottage cheese, tea and yogurt. Farmer said the mobile food pantry is a favorite among the volunteers. “You keep busy,” retiree Carrie Hall said on why she helps hand out food. Monday’s food pantry was no exception. “I’m sweating I’m so hot,” she said. For those waiting in line, the fresh food was a big draw. “Every bit of groceries you get helps the rest of it last a little longer,” Coffey said. Many of those who came on Monday had been out of work

for months or even years or were having trouble making disability payments stretch. Mary Nichols was there because her son’s family had recently moved into her home. “It’s hard to feed seven people on what I get from my income,” Nichols said. “Food prices are so high, and we don’t qualify for food stamps,” said Pam Mooney, who was waiting in the back of the line with her husband. “We’re both on disability, and we are in the process of trying to keep the house instead of losing it. Utilities go higher. When we budget everything out, there is nothing left to buy food with.” — Reporter Christine Metz can be reached at 832-6352.

Lawrence city commissioners on Tuesday slowed down the process of designing a potential west Lawrence recreation center after a mysterious private development group sent word that it may be interested in building its own facility that could meet the city’s needs. Commissioners at their weekly meeting were scheduled to approve a $55,000 contract with the Lawrence architectural firm of Gould Evans to create conCITY ceptual designs COMMISSION and cost estimates so that commissioners could decide whether to commit to the project. But City Commissioner Mike Dever asked fellow commissioners to not execute the contract in order for a private development group to have more time to present its thoughts to city officials. “I think private enterprise believes there might be a chance for it to meet some needs here,” Dever said after the meeting. “I think all this talk of how a facility could bring regional tournaments Please see REC CENTER, page 2A

Brownback supports bill that critics say will allow discrimination By Scott Rothschild srothschild@ljworld.com

Gov. Sam Brownback’s administration on Tuesday supported a bill that it said would protect religious liberty, but critics said the measure would allow discrimination against people based on sexual orientation. Lori Wagner, of Lawrence, said House Bill 2260 would allow people to claim religious reasons for challenging a Law-

‘If the underlying goal is to go after gay people, we’re not going to have it’ rence ordinance that bars discrimination against gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender persons. “It would legalize discrimination,” Wagner said. “If the underlying goal is to go after gay people, we’re not going to have it.” But Lt. Gov. Jeff Colyer testified in support of the bill, saying it was needed because President Barack Obama was

attacking religious rights. He cited the recent controversy over the Obama administration’s decision to require contraceptive coverage in health insurance plans, which has been criticized by some Catholic leaders. “As you consider House Bill 2260, the federal government’s recent attempts to trample the religious liberties of millions of Americans must be at the fore-

DEATHS CALVIN VIRGIL DRESSER Calvin Virgil Dresser was born in Piper, KS on March 14, 1925 to James and Grace Dresser who raised him in Lawrence, and he married Evelyn Cooper. While in the Navy during WWII he earned mechanical and aeronautical engineering degrees from Rice and Kansas Universities. He was a member of Tau Beta Pi. He and Evelyn moved to St. Louis in 1947, where he began his 40-year career with McDonnell Aircraft Company during which he was a design team member on the F-101, F-4, and F-18 among other aircraft. In 1955 he settled in Chesterfield. He and Evelyn were early members of the Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd where he sang in the choir for almost 20 years. In the 1960’s he was an actively involved citizen in the St. Louis County Planning Commission. In 1987 he and Evelyn moved to Warminster, PA where he worked for the Naval Air Warfare Develop-

ment Center until the summer of 1994. They retired to their home in Chesterfield where Evelyn still resides. He enjoyed tinkering with anything old and mechanical in need of repair, acquiring large and small train sets, reading about history and technology, buying and storing used books, and, at one time, accumulating a collection of just about every PC and many peripherals manufactured from 1975 to 2000. Calvin died peacefully in his sleep on Tuesday morning Feb. 7th at the age of 86 from lung cancer.

would push for a bond issue that would allow for all of the elementary schools to stay open. “I think it is important to be mindful of the changes that have happened since the charge was formulated,” Sanburn said. Not all the board members are ready to pull school consolidations off the table. Shannon Kimball is one of them. “I have not yet made up my mind. I think there is still information I need before I can make a decision one way or the other,” Kimball said. While Kimball acknowledged there were small changes in school enrollment data, she said it is not that different from what an early facility task force had used. She also doesn’t see much change in the budget. “It is no better than what it was a year ago,” she said. Ingram, Diaz Moore, Kimball and Masten all began serving on the school board in July after wheels for a consolidation working group were set in motion. Sanburn, Mark Bradford and Bob Byers were part of a board that unanimously agreed to form the consolidation working group last spring. Bradford and Byers could not be reached for comment.

quite a bit,” Ingram said. This year the school district isn’t expecting to see the same level of cuts from state funding as it did in the recent past, Diaz Moore said. And new population trends show growth in areas of the district where schools could be closed. “I think what the board needs to do in the overall consolidation issue is to think about long-term plans for facilities,” Diaz Moore said. “We keep addressing the issue in a fairly tactical kind of way.” Those recent reports also raise questions for Masten. “Taken all together, it is going to be hard for me to vote for closing or consolidating,” Masten said. But he said he still wants to see what the working group would recommend. “I know there is between five and seven different options. I would like to see those. I would like to have the working group present the ones that they believe are at least viable,” he said. Sanburn said she hasn’t fully formed an opinion but would be open to a recommendation that

Dever said he also didn’t want to raise the public’s expectations because he’s uncertain how feasible a private facility could be. “These calls really have come at the 11th hour,” Dever said. “I just got called about it (Monday).” Commissioners agreed on a 4-1 vote to delay taking action on the Gould Evans contract and a $16,500 contract with a private fundraising firm for two weeks. Commissioner Mike Amyx voted against the motion because he said he’s not convinced now is the right time to

be considering building a recreation center. Members of the city’s parks and recreation advisory board and the city’s director of parks and recreation all said they weren’t aware of any details about the private offer. But parks and recreation advocates said the city would need to be careful to ensure that a private center would meet the need of providing lowcost recreation to Lawrence residents. Dever said he believes the development has an idea of building a center and then leasing parts of it back to the city while also using other parts of it to host tournaments and other events. Dever said he believes any private center would need to be located on the west side of Lawrence, if the developers wanted cooperation from the city. “Anything we would agree to would have to meet the needs identified by parks and recreation,” Dever said, adding that he thinks a private center

CITY COMMISSION NOTEBOOK City approves plan to build apartments on mobile home lot A plan to add about 1,000 student bedrooms to the area near 31st and Iowa streets won unanimous approval from Lawrence city commissioners Tuesday. Commissioners approved a rezoning request and a special use permit to allow Aspen Heights to build 304 apartment units that would be a mix of four-bedroom, cottage-style houses and two- and three-bedroom duplex units. The development would feature

buildings that look more like individual homes rather than apartment buildings, commissioners were told. The development will occur on the site of the Gaslight Mobile Home Village just east of 31st and Iowa. Commissioners were told by the mobile home’s management company that there are about 125 homes at the park. He said there are about 200 vacant mobile lots currently available in Lawrence.

Tom Horner, a representative of the management company, said his firm will pay the moving expenses of tenants who want to move to his other mobile park in Lawrence. He said other mobile home parks in the city already have begun offering to pay the moving expenses of Gaslight residents. The project likely will begin construction this summer.

Religion

Francisco, D-Lawrence, spoke against the measure, and Lawrence Mayor Aron Cromwell submitted testimony against it too. “If a community is concerned that discrimination exists, that community should have some flexibility in addressing those concerns,” Francisco said. “I do not believe that our Kansas statutes should be used to condone discrimination on the basis of an individual exercising their freedom of religion.” Cromwell said the bill’s definition of “compelling government interest” excludes local law banning discrimination in employment, public accommodations and housing that differ from the Kansas Act Against Discrimination law. “Lawrence’s law prohibiting discrimination is broader and more inclusive than the Kansas Act Against Discrimination. Our laws were enacted after much public comment and thoughtful deliberation by our elected officials,” he said. Thomas Witt, executive director of the Kansas Equality Coalition, said the bill would invalidate all nondiscrimination policies that do not exactly match the Kansas Act Against Discrimination. Many schools, universities, cities and counties

have policies that specifically prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity, which goes beyond the KAAD, he said. “Our cities, counties, education institutions, and other agencies have adopted these ordinances and policies in good faith, and out of a desire to make our communities better places to live,” Witt said. “The last thing they expect from their Legislature is to have this timebomb dropped in their laps,” he said. Other groups opposed to the bill were the ACLU of Kansas and Western Missouri, the Kansas chapter of the National Organization for Women and the Great Plains Chapter of Americans United for Separation of Church and State. The same bill was considered last year but didn’t advance through the Legislature. During last year’s debate, the supporters of the bill talked mostly about protecting the rights of people who opposed same-sex marriage. This time, however, many of the supporters focused on health care mandates from the Obama administration.

the government if their exercise of religion “has been burdened, or is likely to be burdened.” The measure, by state Rep. Lance Kinzer, ROlathe, was considered before Kinzer’s House Judiciary Committee. No immediate action was taken on the bill, which has been dubbed the Kansas Preservation of Religious Freedom Act. In addition to Colyer, the proposal was supported by the Kansas Catholic Conference, Kansas Family Council, Concerned Women for America of Kansas, and the Alliance Defense Fund. Michael Schuttloffel, executive director of the Kansas Catholic Conference, said the legislation was “necessary as a bulwark” against the erosion of religious freedoms. “Increasingly, freedom of religion is being reduced and confined to little more than the freedom to worship in a private setting,” he said. Supporters said the measure was similar to a federal law already in place and wouldn’t violate anyone’s rights. But state Sen. Marci

LANDOWNER MIKE CAPRA counts the rings on the stump of a tree that he says was illegally cut months ago from his 40-acre property in southwestern Douglas County. Capra has filed a lawsuit against an Overbrook man, whom he accuses of clearing more than 60 trees from his land to sell as firewood.

Lawsuit accuses man of taking 62 trees under false pretenses By George Diepenbrock gdiepenbrock@ljworld.com

ONLINE: See the video at LJWorld.com

A Douglas County man has filed a lawsuit accusing an Overbrook man of removing 62 trees, valued at more than $50,000, from his property and selling them as firewood. Mike Capra alleges that on Dec. 10 Kevin G. Reece asked him if he could cut enough wood from trees for “a few hedge posts” — used for rural fences — on Capra’s undeveloped property in southwestern Douglas County

‘I gave him a few hedge posts, and he takes the whole forest,’ rural resident claims that abuts the Franklin County line. However, Capra claims that when he visited the property Jan. 15 he discovered 62 trees had been cut down and brush piles were left scattered on the property. “I gave him a few hedge posts, and he takes the whole forest,” Capra said. The suit claims Reece’s son had participated in removing the trees and had been selling it as firewood. Capra’s attorney, Brad Finkeldei, said it was

Capra’s belief Reece would cut only a few limbs from trees for the hedge posts. Capra also claims in the suit that the total value of the trees was in excess of $50,000, and he accuses Reece of wrongfully converting the trees into firewood for his own benefit, falsely representing reasons for entering the land and trespassing. “The unique part about this is it’s a natural resource that’s been destroyed, and it can never be replaced,” Finkeldei said.

Capra filed a theft report with the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office. Douglas County prosecutors declined to file criminal charges. Attempts to reach Reece were not successful Tuesday. Finkeldei said he had not been notified that authorities had been successful in serving Reece notice of the suit at his Overbrook address. District Judge Paula Martin has not scheduled a hearing in the case.

TOPEKA — Clay Blair, the first chairman of the Kansas Bioscience Authority and former chairman of the Kansas Board of Regents, said Tuesday he was surprised and disappointed that President Obama did not propose new funding for the National Bio and AgroDefense Facility in his budget. Getting NBAF was a Blair top priority of the Bioscience Authority, Blair said. And helping Kansas win the $650 million lab for Manhattan in a nationwide competition was construction of another lab at Kansas State University, the $54 million Biosecurity Research Institute, under an initiative pushed by the Kansas Board of Regents. “All these were strategic plays — each step had to fall in line,” Blair said. Blair said he had no idea now whether NBAF would become a reality. State elected officials say they will do everything possible to get the lab built and operating.

Concerns arise over local property taxes for schools By Scott Rothschild srothschild@ljworld.com

TOPEKA — Democratic leaders Tuesday said Gov. Sam Brownback’s plans to phase out the state income tax and eliminate limits on local property taxes for schools would have dire consequences. House Minority Leader Paul Davis of Lawrence said Brownback’s proposal would lead to an education system of “haves and have-nots” and skyrocketing property taxes. “We are several years away from having a property tax revolt in this state,” Davis said. Davis and Senate Minority Leader Anthony Hensley of Topeka spoke to the State Board of Education about the Democratic alternative to the proposals by Brownback, a Republican. Several Republicans on the education board also expressed concerns about Brownback’s school funding overhaul. On taxes, Brownback has proposed lowering income tax rates, giving thousands of businesses a tax break, eliminating standard deductions and making permanent the 6.3 percent state sales tax, which is currently scheduled to decrease to 5.7 percent next year. Brownback also wants to limit spending growth to 2 percent per year and use any state revenue collected above that to phase out the income tax. On school finance, Brownback wants to remove state limits on local property taxes for schools and eliminate the current system of providing extra funds to educate certain kinds of students, such as those at risk of failing. Brownback has said his measure will give local officials more authority in how they raise and spend school dollars. Hensley said Brownback’s plan would “impose a massive tax shift on local property taxes to support Kansas schools.” That isn’t fair, Hensley said, because rich districts would be more able to raise school taxes than poor districts. Several members of the education board agreed. Walt Chappell, a Republican from Wichita, said of the governor’s plan, “I do not think this is equitable at all.” But Chappell said the state faces serious funding problems. Jana Shaver, a Republican from Independence,

We don’t have an income tax problem, we have a property tax problem in Kansas.” — Senate Minority Leader Anthony Hensley also expressed concerns over Brownback’s plan. “My hope is that as this process moves forward, that everyone recognizes the importance of looking at the property tax load.” The Democratic plan would keep in place the current school finance formula and increase funding by $180 million over the next three years to restore some of the cuts that schools have absorbed over the past several years. It would also send $45 million to local governments as a way to reduce property taxes. “We don’t have an income tax problem, we have a property tax problem in Kansas,” Hensley said. The funding would come from greater-thanexpected revenues that the state has been receiving. State Board of Education Chairman David Dennis, a Republican from Wichita, asked if the Legislature could reach a compromise on school finance. Hensley and Davis said there is bipartisan support for Brownback’s proposal to increase technical education funding. Approving the technical education plan and increasing school funding under the current school finance formula could be the basis for a compromise, Hensley said.

Under the proposal, scientists at NBAF will research deadly animal diseases, such as footand-mouth disease. The facility would replace the Plum Island Animal Disease Center, an aging lab off Long Island, N.Y. Kansas officials have touted NBAF as the anchor to what could be an internationally known animal health corridor from Manhattan to Columbia, Mo., that would have billions of dollars of economic impact. Workers in Manhattan have already cleared the site for the Obama project. Last year, Obama included $150 million for the project, but Congress appropriated only $50 million. The White House said that wasn’t enough to start construction. “In light of this, the Administration will conduct a comprehensive assessment of the project in 2012, which will consider the cost, safety and alternatives to the current plan that would reduce costs and ensure safety,” the budget document unveiled Monday states. Obama has asked the Department of Homeland Security to re-evaluate the project. His budget would also spend $10 million to increase the amount of research being done at K-State’s Biosecurity Research Institute. While Kansas officials applauded the $10 million, it is NBAF they want to nail down. The state was selected as the NBAF site in 2008 with operations to start as early as 2018. Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kan., “will consider all legislative options to fund this critical national security priority,” his office said. But the effort will face a Congress seeking to cut spending, plus congressional officials from New Roberts York who are urging the Obama administration to keep the Plum Island site in operation. NBAF was also dealt a setback when a National Academy of Sciences study identified a 70 percent chance that a release of foot-and-mouth disease could occur at the new facility during its projected 50-year lifespan. Damages to the livestock industry could total as much as $50 billion if a release were to occur, officials have said. The academy is again studying the feasibility of placing the facility in Kansas, and a final report is due this summer. — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

DOUGLAS COUNTY DISTRICT COURT • Carrie Neighbors, an owner of the former Yellow House Store in Lawrence serving an eight-year federal prison sentence for convictions in a wire fraud and conspiracy case, has filed a lawsuit in Douglas County District Court against the Kansas University Police Department and a detective, Michael Riner. The suit, which Neighbors filed without an attorney, alleges there was no jurisdiction for federal obstruction charges to be filed against Neighbors in connection with an investigation into a laptop stolen from the KU campus, and she also accuses Riner of falsely testifying in the case. Neighbors was convicted in a stolen goods case, and she and her husband, Guy Neighbors, have accused prosecutors and police of corruption. “We will vigorously defend this case in court,” said Jill Jess, a KU spokeswoman. “But it’s important to note that a federal jury convicted this plaintiff of 12 counts of wire fraud, three counts of money laundering and one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud, mail fraud and money laundering. The Court of Appeals just last month affirmed that conviction.”

$2.5 million grant to help KU study on prenatal supplement By Karrey Britt kbritt@ljworld.com

Kansas University researchers recently received a $2.5 million grant to study whether prenatal supplementation of an omega-3 fatty acid benefits children’s intelligence and school readiness. “We should be able to definitively answer the question of whether or not this prenatal supplement actually does affect cognitive outcomes — things like language and IQ,” said John Colombo, director of KU’s Life Span Institute and a Colombo professor of psychology. The grant enables Colombo and Susan Carlson, professor of dietetics and Carlson nutrition at Kansas University Medical Center, to extend their research on supplementation of docosahexaenoic acid, or DHA, which is an omega-3 fatty acid that occurs naturally in cell membranes, with the highest levels in brain cells and the retina. Colombo said DHA levels can be increased by diet or supplements, particularly from fish oil. An infant obtains DHA from his or her mother in utero and postnatally from human milk. Five years ago, Colombo said they enrolled 350 pregnant women from the Kansas City area, including Lawrence, into a study

to determine whether DHA supplementation improved birth outcomes and reduced prematurity. The women were randomly assigned to either 600 milligrams of DHA or 600 milligrams of a placebo during the last half of pregnancy. The children then were followed until age 18 months. During that time, they underwent a number of intense assessments that included weight, height, blood pressure, heart rate, memory tasks and attention tests. “These kids were measured out the kazoo,” Colombo said. Colombo said they are putting together an analysis for the first five years, but the results are showing promise and that’s why they received the latest grant from the National Institutes of Health. He said the last child turned 18 months in October and the grant will allow them to continue measuring the children every six months until age 7. “What we want to know is that if you feed the moms this supplement during this potentially critical period of their pregnancy, do the kids show differences in cognition?” Colombo said. Carlson said the possibility that DHA may have long-term benefits for intellectual development could have enormous implications for public policy on prenatal nutrition. — Health reporter Karrey Britt can be reached at 832-7190.

Information on accusers in sex crime case sought By George Diepenbrock gdiepenbrock@ljworld.com

A defense attorney for a Shelter Inc. employee who faces three sex crime charges is seeking more information about the man’s teenage accusers, including their juvenile criminal history. The 46-year-old man was suspended without pay from The Shelter after his Dec. 29 arrest. The Kansas Attorney General’s Office filed charges of aggravated indecent liberties with a child, criminal sodomy and indecent liberties with a child for alleged acts that began in October. The charges listed the victims between the ages of 14 and 16. The man’s attorney, James Rumsey, during a motions hearing Tuesday said he planned to subpoena several agencies for records, including to determine whether the teens have had any psychological evaluations. The agencies likely would have been in charge of the teenagers who

were placed with The Shelter Inc. as part of a child-inneed-of-care case, he said. The Shelter Inc. has an office at 105 W. 11th St. and operates emergency residential care for Kansas teenagers who are placed through the court system. Staff members also assist law enforcement with juvenile cases. Rumsey said information about whether any of the teens have past adjudications for “crimes of dishonesty” would be important information for the defense about their credibility. Retired Johnson County District Judge Janice Russell said the requests were fair as part of discovery in the case. Douglas County prosecutors asked the attorney general’s office to handle the case because prosecutors work with the agency. Russell is also presiding over the case. The next hearing is scheduled for April 11. The Journal-World generally does not identify sex crime suspects unless they are convicted.

PAYROLL TAX CUT

Tentative deal reached

By Andrew Taylor

Associated Press

WASHINGTON — HouseSenate talks on renewing a payroll tax cut that delivers about $20 a week to the average worker yielded a tentative agreement Tuesday, with lawmakers planning to unveil the pact today and sending the measure to President Barack Obama as early as this week. Under the outlines of the emerging agreement, a 2 percentage-point cut in the Social Security payroll tax would be extended through the end of the year, with the nearly $100 billion cost added to the deficit. Jobless benefits for the long-term unemployed would be renewed as well, with the $30 billion cost paid for in part through auctioning broadcast spectrum to wireless companies and requiring federal workers to contribute more toward their pensions. GOP lawmakers leaving a party meeting said they were told a tentative pact had been reached but said some details could change before the compromise was finalized, probably today. They described the session as largely positive, and several predicted the House would approve the deal. The payroll tax cut benefits 160 million Americans and delivers a tax cut of about $20 a week for a typical worker making $50,000 a year. People making a $100,000 salary would get a $2,000 tax cut.

County to hear plan for senior housing

Banner fundraising year for wealthy colleges For the 99 percent of colleges, it was a pretty good fundraising year. For the 1 percent of super-wealthy elite, it was a much better one that catapulted them even farther ahead of the pack. The latest annual college fundraising figures out today show donations to colleges and universities rose 8.2 percent in fiscal 2011, crossing back over the $30 billion mark for just the second time ever, and improving many schools’ financial footing after several lean years due to the economic downturn. But the very richest universities accounted for nearly half the growth: Of the $30.3 billion collected by colleges and universities nationwide, $8.2 billion — or 27 percent — was raised by just the top

20 institutions. At those universities, fundraising was 15.3 percent higher than the year before, widening an already yawning wealth gap at the top of higher education. Stanford University, which recently broke an all-time record by completing a 5-year, $6.2 billion fundraising campaign, led with $709.4 million collected in fiscal 2011, followed by Harvard ($639.2 million) and Yale ($580.3 million). Rounding out the list were private universities such as Columbia and Johns Hopkins, as well as elite public universities such as UCLA and the Universities of Texas, Wisconsin and North Carolina. Most campuses on the list have major medical schools and affiliated research centers, though No. 4 MIT ($534 million) is an exception.

Predictable end The issue of local elementary school consolidation is back where it belongs: with the school board and its top administrators.

T

he decision of a local school task force not to complete its charge of recommending how to consolidate central-city elementary schools is disappointing but not surprising. For a number of reasons — most of them related to a lack of school district direction and leadership — members of the Central and East Lawrence Elementary School Consolidation Working Group had struggled for five months to reach a consensus on how to reduce six elementary schools to three or four within the next two years. On Monday they announced they would not provide a specific consolidation recommendation. Instead, they decided to split into two groups: one that will make the case against any consolidation and the other that will argue that it might work. The only thing the entire group could agree on is the need for more money for local schools. The very makeup of the group — almost all the members represented targeted schools — almost ensured its work would end in impasse. That outcome became more likely when the Lawrence school board, with a majority of new members, refused to expressly stand by the working group’s initial charge. The previous board had told the group to assume schools would be consolidated and to work toward the most positive way to accomplish that consolidation. As Superintendent Rick Doll confirmed Monday, the political landscape has changed since June, when four new members joined the school board. Without solid direction from the board that consolidation would occur, working group members were understandably concerned about sticking their necks out by making specific consolidation recommendations. One working group member succinctly noted Monday that although the group wasn’t advocating keeping all schools open, “We just refuse to name schools and then play the villain to their (the school board’s) hero.” In addition to the shifting political climate surrounding these discussions, there also has been an ongoing shift in enrollment numbers that would guide the working group’s decision. Despite the lack of solid factual information and a lack of direction from the school board and top administrators, Doll still urged the working group to proceed with “whatever you can give the board in terms of helping them with this decision.” The only problem is that, at this point, it’s hard to even know what issue the board is planning to decide. Perhaps the most detrimental part of this process is the split in the working group, which only formalizes the division in a group that the district hoped would offer a unified consensus for action. Given the unsettled status of state funding for public schools, it makes sense at this point for the school board to accept whatever report the working group can provide, thank group members for their service and then put the matter on hold, at least until the end of the legislative session. Then the board and the superintendent should do the job they were elected and hired to do and resist the temptation to seek political cover for potentially difficult decisions by turning them over to an appointed community group.

Halting carnage in Syria isn’t easy In 1982, I interviewed Syrian Information Minister Ahmed Iskander in Damascus, shortly after the regime had killed at least 10,000 people in the city of Hama. On his office wall hung a painting of an old Hama neighborhood with one of the waterwheels for which the city was famous. “That is our lovely city of Hama,” he told me calmly. “It’s perfectly peaceful. You should visit it someday.” He knew that I knew this neighborhood had been leveled to the ground. Back then, under the regime of Hafez al-Assad, there was no Internet or Skype to send out pictures of carnage. No journalists were allowed near Hama; the government felt free to bury whole sections of the city and deny the story. Of course word leaked out about the slaughter, but there was no visible proof. Fast-forward 30 years. Assad’s son, Bashar, is blasting civilians in Homs with rockets and heavy artillery. Once again, the regime says any bloodshed is the work of “armed terrorist groups.” In 2012, however, we can see what the regime is doing in real time. Brave Syrian civilians are risking their lives to take cellphone videos and relay them via YouTube. They broadcast live accounts to CNN and the British Broadcasting Corp. via Skype with mortar fire booming in the background. We watch scenes of wounded children, pulverized apartments, and hospitals filled with wounded but lacking supplies. The gut response is “Do something!” But there is a huge disconnect between what we see and what we can do. Not surprisingly, Sens. John McCain, R-Ariz., Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and Joseph Lieberman, I-Conn., are calling for the United States and its allies to aid and arm

So let’s not talk of arming ‘the Syrian opposition’ — and it may come to that — without thinking through the repercussions or recognizing it won’t stop the slaughter of civilians in the near term.” the Syrian opposition. The Free Syrian Army (FSA), made up of defectors from Assad’s forces, is reportedly receiving some help from Persian Gulf Arab states and managing to capture or buy small arms within Syria; it even has acquired antitank weapons. Experts such as Jeffrey White of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy say they believe that the FSA, whose current strength he puts at 4,000 to 7,000 troops, “can contribute to a process that causes the [Syrian] army or regime to break” through a war of attrition, especially if it gets more antitank weapons. But the Syrian army rebels are up against a huge government army of about 300,000 men. Its top generals and elite forces are all members of Assad’s minority Alawite clan (unlike the mostly Sunni foot soldiers). Backed by Iran, armed by Russia, they will fight to the end. Meanwhile, the FSA contains separate groups of fighters with little overall leadership or strategy. The political leadership of the

Syrian opposition — the Syrian National Council — is even more disunited. So before we rush to arm the FSA, let’s be clear where we are heading: There is no way the Free Syrian Army can defeat Assad without foreign military assistance. Recall that in Libya — the parallel to which many point — it took a months-long effort by NATO to defeat the much weaker Moammar Gadhafi. Even McCain expresses caution about military action because Syria is “much more complicated ... than ... Libya.” Anyone who calls for arming the FSA must ask: Is NATO (or any Persian Gulf country, or Turkey) ready to take on another, bigger, war in the Middle East? I’d say the answer is no. And for good reason: A NATO no-fly zone to protect rebel-held parts of Syria would mean first destroying a massive Syrian air-defense system. This wouldn’t stop the shelling of civilians by tanks and artillery. If, on the other hand, NATO tried to institute a “no-drive zone,” this would require bombing Syrian vehicles inside urban areas, risking the death of many civilians. Another oft-heard idea — setting up opposition “safe havens” inside Syria near the Turkish border — would also require foreign military support. So let’s not talk of arming “the Syrian opposition” — and it may come to that — without thinking through the repercussions or recognizing it won’t stop the slaughter of civilians in the near term. Other options need to be tried first. One idea being considered by the Obama administration is the creation of a “Friends of Democratic Syria” group, including Arab League, European, and Islamic states, notably Turkey. It would press Syria to permit humanitarian aid into Homs and also urge

Russia to reconsider its veto of a U.N. Security Council resolution urging a peaceful transfer of power in Damascus. If Assad lost the support of his key Russian ally, perhaps, just perhaps, he might reconsider his future. “I hope the Russians will make a new assessment,” said Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu, who spoke with journalists in Washington. “Assad promised (Russian Foreign Minister Sergei) Lavrov to stop the violence, but the violence continued.” Davutoglu will meet Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on Monday to discuss increasing the pressure on Syria. No doubt the “Friends” group would warn Moscow that its help to Assad fuels the civil war. Turkey’s position on arming a free Syrian force is crucial, because it borders Syria and has given defecting Syrian officers refuge. “Until now,” Davutoglu said, “we don’t want to do anything based on a military presence. Yes, there are Syrian (opposition) officers on our soil, but that doesn’t mean we are arming or trying to organize a military force.” “Safe havens (inside Syria) should be discussed later if all these diplomatic methods are not helping,” the foreign minister added. He saw “no role for NATO for now,” but “maybe later.” This Turkish push to give tough diplomacy another chance is born of recognition that a military campaign would be ugly and long, and would ignite more sectarian conflict in the region. Outside military help may be inevitable, but it won’t stop the Homs horrors. Just because we can see Assad’s war crimes doesn’t mean it will be easy to stop them — or him. — Trudy Rubin is a columnist and editorial-board member for the Philadelphia Inquirer.

PUBLIC FORUM

Action on Syria To the editor: We have been following, with great interest, the events in Syria and the bombardment of Homs and other cities by the dictator of that renegade country, Bashar Al-Assad. Like his father, he is killing thousands to keep himself in power. He calls the opposition “terrorists from outside of Syria” to justify killing so many. He is supported by Iran, Russia and China, who oppose any peace plan. Here is the “axis of evil.” To stop them the world has to band together and refuse their exports, their pleading for more wheat or staples from us. This axis of evil is supporting the destruction of thousands of years of history in that part of the world and will continue to do so until someone can stand up to China and Russia and declare a stop to this. It may already be too late to stop Assad, but he can be replaced with democratic leadership and turn that beautiful country into a friend to the world. Our “friendship” and sup-

port of Russia have allowed them to eat the grain we furnish them, to continue to build their economy and to support their people, but the backing of Assad should change our position and they should be denied the staples we provide them. The love of Chinese products has changed that country into one that has potential to be an ally of the West, but when it supports this kind of mass killing, it is time to say “no, stop it now.” David L. Omar, Lawrence

Shrinking paper To the editor: Lower the masthead, the Journal-World newspaper is shrinking? Having been out of town for a couple of weeks, I must have missed the grand announcement. I assume I also missed the announcement that our subscription cost will be reduced proportionately. Wow! This is great. At this rate, it won’t be long before we will be receiving a comic book on our doorstep each day. T.J. Hoisington, Lawrence

Still too tall To the editor: A front-page news item in the Feb. 2 Journal-World was titled optimistically “Developers revise plans for Ninth and New Hampshire hotel to respond to neighbors’ concerns.” The piece gave the developers plenty of opportunity to “look good,” as if they were being responsive to neighborhood concerns. As a resident on the 900 block of Rhode Island Street, I disagree. The neighbors have made clear that the proposed building is far too massive to be next to our smaller-scaled residential neighborhood. Anything higher than three stories on the New Hampshire Street side or two stories on the back is too big in our view. We have made these concerns clear to the developers in several meetings, but we have seen no evolution of the design in response to our requests. The proposed building is still just too huge. The Historical Resources Commission denied the initial request of the developers,

because the design would impinge on the historical integrity of the adjacent National Historical District. The commission gave the developers clear instructions to use the height of the Lawrence Arts Center as their size standard, but the “revisions” cited in Journal-World left the design still almost TWICE as high as the arts center. We assume that the Historical Resources Commission, at its Feb. 16 meeting, will thus act appropriately and deny the developers’ revised proposal. Rosa Salazar, Lawrence

Big 12 releases football schedule

HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL

Down to the wire

FSHS boys hold off SMNW, 47-45

By Matt Tait mtait@ljworld.com

While the rest of the Big 12 football world greeted Tuesday’s release of the 2012 conference football schedules with euphoria and a sigh of relief, at least one man in Lawrence refused to get worked up about the wait. “For me, it’s not a problem because all the teams are going to be new to me,” Kansas University football coach Charlie Weis said at his introductory news conference in December. “Having West Virginia and TCU in here, that’s just who we play. No matter who is here, those nine games you have to play are all going to be new to me.” Big deal or not, KU will play a big role in welcoming newcomers TCU and West Virginia into the Big 12 next season. With West Virginia’s divorce from the Big East becoming official Tuesday morning, the Big 12 Conference was free to release its much anticipated football schedules for the 2012 college season. When the slates surfaced, the Jayhawks learned they would open and close the 2012 season with the two Big 12 newcomers. KU is scheduled to face TCU on Sept. 15 in Lawrence in the season’s first conference game, and it will play West Virginia in MorganWest town, W.Va., Virginia on Dec. 1 in settled a the regularlawsuit season finale. with The rest of the Big Kansas’ Big 12 East on schedule inTuesday cludes home and will games against join the Oklahoma Big 12 in State (Oct. 13), July 2012. Texas (Oct. Page 2B 27) and Iowa State (Nov. 17), and road games at Kansas State (Oct. 6), Oklahoma (Oct. 20), Baylor (Nov. 3) and Texas Tech (Nov. 10). Although Weis has plenty of time to prep and gameplan for every one of those conference foes, he took the KU job with a pretty good understanding of what he was getting into. “I just know that this is a very competitive conference that has had nothing but good teams come out of it for many years,” Weis said. “It’s not just this year or last year. The thing is, we want to be one of them. We want to be one of those teams where you go, ‘Wow, what happened to Kansas?’” KU’s schedule, which features two bye weeks (Sept. 29 and Nov. 24), also includes home dates with nonconference foes South Dakota State (Sept. 1) and Rice (Sept. 8), as well as a trip to Northern Illinois on Sept. 22. Kickoff times have not yet been released.

KU FOOTBALL 2012 SCHEDULE

Free State High’s boys basketball team was inches away from its third straight loss Tuesday night. Instead, the Firebirds avoided a major letdown at home against Shawnee Mission Northwest, securing a 47-45 win after Cougars senior forward Jackson Foth’s last-second three-pointer rimmed out. With 6.8 seconds remaining, senior Free State forward Gabe Patterson hit one free throw to give the Firebirds (6-11) a two-point lead. After Patterson missed his second attempt from the foul line, the Cougars (6-12) called a timeout to set up what would be their final possession. Though SMNW senior guard Blake Evans pushed the ball up the right sideline as the clock ticked down, a pass ahead was knocked out by FSHS, and Northwest had the ball out of bounds with 2.9 seconds on the fourthquarter clock. Following a timeout by Free State coach Chuck Law, SMNW sophomore guard Jake Horner made an inbounds pass to Luke Fields, who was fouled by Firebirds senior point guard Shawn Knighton — FSHS had a foul to give — with 1.9 left. Finally, Horner found Foth wide open for a three from the right corner and the would-be game-winner rattled out. Senior Free State guard Brett Frantz, who led his team with 17 points, said the Firebirds knew that Foth would be the Cougars’ go-to guy, but miscommunication led to a defensive breakdown. “He was wide-open, and we just got lucky that he missed it,” Frantz said. It was a rare defensive miscue down the stretch,

When the Kansas University women’s basketball team knocked off Iowa State in a double-overtime thriller on Jan. 11 at Allen Fieldhouse, junior forward Carolyn Davis played 32 minutes, scored 21 points, grabbed four rebounds and dished three assists. During that same game, KU freshman Chelsea Gardner logged eight minutes, one rebound and one turnover. With Davis now sidelined for the rest of the season and the Jayhawks and Cyclones slated for a rematch at 7 tonight in Ames, Iowa, Gardner knows exactly what she’s facing as she prepares to make the first start of her college career. “I’ve got some big shoes that I need to fit into,” said

the 6-foot-3 forward from DeSoto, Texas. “And I just feel that I need to practice harder and come out and work hard in the games.” KU coach Bonnie Henrickson said Monday that CYCLONE she would not ask WATCH Gardner to What: Kanbecome Dasas (17-7 vis.

I know her teammates have confidence in her, and I would think that would give her confidence in herself.” While Gardner will slide into Davis’ spot in the starting lineup, several other Jayhawks will be asked to pick up the slack for their fallen leading scorer. With Davis’ 17.5 points and 60 percent shooting out of the lineup, Henrickson said she was anticipating a drop-off in her team’s efficiency on the offensive end. She has a plan to combat that.

Settlement paves way for WVU MORGANTOWN, W.VA. (AP) — West Virginia University announced Tuesday it has settled a lawsuit with the Big East for an unspecified amount, clearing the way for the conference power Mountaineers to join the Big 12 in July in time for the fall football season. Athletic director Oliver Luck said the terms of the deal were confidential and WVU wouldn’t release details. But Luck said no state, taxpayer, tuition or other academic dollars will be used in the settlement. A person familiar with the agreement said the settlement totaled $20 million but did not

know how much money would come from the university and how much the Big 12 may contribute. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because financial terms were not being made in the announcement of the agreement. Luck said the funding will come only from private sources and money that athletics raised independently. WVU has already paid half of the required $5 million exit fee to the Big East. Luck said the new relationship puts WVU among peers that are also large, public, flagship institutions for their states

In the wake of Sunday’s Tiger-Phil showdown at the Pebble Beach corral, one prevailing image emerges. It is of Phil Mickelson, standing over a coffin, hammer in hand, pounding down a final nail. Will Tiger Woods ever recover from this one? Can the 64-75 final-round beating that Woods took at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am be shrugged off as just another bad day, another step in the “process� that Tiger keeps talking about? It’s one thing to have your brains beat out, entirely another to have it happen when you are playing head to head, in the second-to-last pairing of a tournament that has a huge following, that is played in one of the most picturesque places in the world. CBS announcer Jim Nantz keynoted things pretty well when he said, in dead-on accurate simplicity, “This is a big day for golf.� It was Tiger and Phil, together again. You could almost imagine PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem pulling up a chair in front of the TV in his Florida headquarters and rubbing his hands together in delight. Charlie Wi, a fine golfer, led the tournament, and he was in the final pairing. Right in front were the two names that have rung the chimes with American golf fans for the last 10 years. Poor Charlie. You kind of knew he would somehow be gobbled up by one of the two monsters of golf’s midway, but to his credit, he recovered from a four-putt first green to finish second. After Woods got himself in prime position to strike on Sunday, with lead-up rounds of 68-68-67, the feeling around the venerable Lodge and among the people who watched from the gallery amid the legendary cypress trees was that this would be Tiger’s comeback Sunday. It would be Michael Jordanesque. Instead of standing up and proclaiming “I’m back,� he could merely do it with golf clubs in hand. But he’s not back, unless they create a category for best threeround tour player. The greatest golf finisher of our time can no longer finish. A player who cherished big moments, who wore red on close-’em-out Sundays that always seemed to symbolize the fire with which he took it to his foes, had a storybook setup. He was in a final pairing with his biggest rival and nemesis, and his history was of being the guy who always drew first at high noon. Hope springs eternal for Tiger fans. Mickelson said that one week can change everything. Woods may still have that week. But the doubts are adding up, the evidence continuing to bring unmistakable conclusions. Sunday’s Pebble Beach finale becomes the new Exhibit A in opportunity missed.

status,� Luck said. “With this move, we’ll be in an excellent position to do so.� A spokesman for the Big 12 didn’t immediately comment on the deal, but the conference released its football schedule about an hour after the announcement. West Virginia will make its Big 12 debut on Sept. 29 at home against Baylor. The Mountaineers and their explosive offense went 10-3 last season and finished ranked in the Top 25. West Virginia capped off the season with a record-setting 70-33 victory over Clemson in the Orange Bowl.

COMMENTARY

Tiger missed opportunity against Phil

and have strong academic and research programs. Athletically, it’s a “challenging and competitive� group, he said, populated by schools with “tremendous legacies, passionate fan bases.� It’s also lucrative: Luck said WVU should get about $18 million to $19 million a year in television payouts, about double what it gets from the Big East. Payments are being prorated for the first three years at 50 percent, 67 percent and 87 percent, he said, reaching 100 percent in the fourth year. “It’s a very healthy television payout, and it’s important we maintain our self-sufficient

Royals exercise 2013 option on skipper Yost KANSAS CITY, MO. — The Kansas City Royals have exercised their option on manager Ned Yost to keep him with the club through the 2013 season. The team announced the move Tuesday, six days before pitchers and catchers are due to report to the Royals’ spring training home in Surprise, Ariz. Yost was hired in May 2010 to replace Trey Hillman. He signed a two-year extension that July that included a club option for next season. Yost is just 126-163 since taking over the Royals, but he’s been credited with helping bring along one of the youngest rosters in baseball. A youthful team led by Alex Gordon, Eric Hosmer and Mike Moustakas is expected to begin contending in the AL Central for the first time in years. Yost last fall shook up his coaching staff, parting with pitching coach Bob McClure and bench coach John Gibbons. He replaced McClure with former Yankees pitching coach Dave Eiland, who will be asked to develop a young rotation that was long on talent but short on results as the Royals finished 24 games out of first place in the AL Central. McClure oversaw the development of former Cy Young winner Zack Greinke, now with the Brewers, along with starters such as Luke Hochevar and Danny Duffy. He was often criticized for a pitching staff that walked far too many batters — the Royals were fourth in the Orlin Wagner/AP Photo majors and led the American League with 557 KANSAS CITY ROYALS MANAGER NED YOST walks — and consequently struggled to get deep watches batting practice at Kauffman into games. Stadium in Kansas City, Mo. The Royals on Tuesday exercised their option to keep BASEBALL Yost as manager through 2013.

Gwynn undergoes surgery

SAN DIEGO — Hall of Fame outfielder Tony Gwynn had surgery Tuesday to remove a new cancerous tumor inside his right cheek. Gwynn, now San Diego State’s baseball coach, previously had a malignant growth removed from the same spot in August 2010. Gwynn’s wife, Alicia, told ESPN that doctors do not believe the cancer has spread outside of Gwynn’s salivary gland.

Chiefs complete coaching staff KANSAS CITY, MO. — Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel announced the remainder of his staff on Tuesday, which includes quarterbacks coach Jim Zorn, who was passed over for the offensive coordinator position. Brian Daboll was hired recently to run the offense, which led many to question whether Zorn would be back. He was retained along with assistant head coach Maurice Carthon, tight ends coach Bernie Parmalee, strength coach Mike Clark, wide receivers coach Nick Sirianni and virtually the entire defensive staff. Jack Bicknell Jr. was hired to coach the offensive line, and Jim Bob Cooter was brought in as the offensive quality control coach. Tom McMahon and Derius Swinton will handle special teams. Many believed that Zorn was the front-runner

for the offensive coordinator position, but Crennel eventually opted to go with Daboll, whom he coached with in New England. Besides bringing in a fresh face to run the offense, a new special teams staff and a new offensive line coach to replace the retired Bill Muir, Crennel largely opted for continuity in filling out the rest of his coaching staff.

K.C. signs safety McCarthy KANSAS CITY, MO. — The Kansas City Chiefs have signed free-agent safety Kyle McCarthy. McCarthy, who played college ball at Notre Dame, appeared in 12 games over two seasons with the Denver Broncos before he was waived on Jan. 4. The Chiefs announced the move on Tuesday.

Manning, Irsay to meet INDIANAPOLIS — According to Colts owner Jim Irsay, Peyton Manning will decide whether he plays another game for Indianapolis. Irsay expects to meet with Manning in the next seven days, and the owner told The Indianapolis Star on Tuesday the return of the four-time MVP depends on his willingness to restructure his contract. Manning has spent the past five months recovering from his third neck surgery in less than two years, and there have been conflicting reports about how much progress he has made.

KANSAS CENTER JEFF WITHEY DUNKS off an alley-oop from teammate Tyshawn Taylor against Kansas State during the first half on Monday at Bramlage Coliseum.

Whirlwind week earns Withey national award By Gary Bedore gbedore@ljworld.com

Kansas University junior center Jeff Withey on Tuesday was named the Oscar Robertson national player of the week as awarded by the U.S. Basketball Writers Association. The honor came a day after Withey earned Big 12 player of the week honors. “I guess ‘Withey-mania’ or whatever is sweeping the Midwest,” KU assistant coach Kurtis Townsend said Tuesday on the weekly Hawk Talk radio show. Withey, who scored 18 points, grabbed 11 rebounds and blocked nine shots in Monday’s 59-53 victory at Kansas State, scored a career-high 25 points against Baylor and secured a career-best 20 rebounds against Oklahoma State last week. “It helps us to have another offensive threat in there,” Townsend said. “People know that it’s a good gig playing next to Thomas (Robinson), who gets so much attention (of the defense). “Jeff has done what he’s supposed to. I think he felt awful how he played at Missouri (zero points). His attitude changed. He found his game. I think

his confidence is sky-high now,” Townsend added. Withey, who hit six of seven free throws at KState, has made 80 of 94 free throws for a teamleading 85.1 percent. KU coach Bill Self chose Withey to shoot a pair of technical foul shots Monday. The 7-footer converted both attempts. “Four weeks ago, somebody got a ‘T’ and coach Self said, ‘Who shoots ‘em?’” Townsend said of technical foul shots. “I said, ‘Tyshawn (Taylor).’ Coach said, ‘Withey’s our best free-throw shooter.’ I said, ‘We can’t put a 7-footer on the line.’ Tyshawn actually made those two,” Townsend added with a laugh. “Jeff knocked down those two yesterday. He’s very good from the freethrow line. His ability to shoot free throws will make him more dangerous down the line. They’ll foul you when you grab a rebound late in games.” Withey said it was an honor to be chosen to shoot the technical shots at KSU. “I felt really comfortable,” he said. “Coach has enough confidence to put me there. I’ve been working on it all year, trying to get better every single day by shooting free throws.

They are easy points, free points.” Of his excellent play since the Feb. 4 game at Missouri, Withey said: “It’s been fun the last couple games. With these games back to back, I feel I’ve not had time to stop and breathe. I had to pick it up after Missouri. I never want something like that to happen again. “It just kind of happened,” he added of his emergence. “My teammates lift me up all the time. It’s all in slow motion.” Withey credited strength coach Andrea Hudy for improving his body over the summer as well as big man coach Danny Manning for work on technique. “Thomas is very unselfish (with passes to Withey). That’s what’s helping make Jeff look so good,” Townsend said. “Coach Manning does an unbelievable job developing those guys. They are starting to click. I’m really happy for Jeff. He’s paid his dues. I just hope he continues this and finishes the season strong.” Withey — he averages 9.5 points, 6.5 rebounds and 4.5 blocks per game — is the second KU player to be named the Oscar Robertson player of the week this season. Robinson earned

Football legend Gale Sayers leaves Kansas Athletics post By Matt Tait mtait@ljworld.com

Kansas University football great and pro football Hall of Fame inductee Gale Sayers, hired in October of 2009 to be KU’s director of fundraising for special projects, no longer is employed by the university. Sayers, a former running back who went on to stardom in the NFL with the Chicago Bears, left Kansas Athletics, Inc., a few weeks ago to take a job in Las Vegas working as a celebrity ambassador for charity events and poker tournaments. KU athletic director Sheahon Zenger said Sayers’ resignation was an emotional moment.

“Gale was presented with the opportunity of a lifetime, both financially and as a celebrity, and it was something he could not pass up,” Zenger said. “In sharing the move with us, the conversation was very h e a r t f e l t Sayers and it was important to him that people know how much he cares about the University of Kansas.” Sayers hosted a charity poker event with former Green Bay Packers great Paul Hornung on Feb. 5 at

Las Vegas’ Red Rock Casino. One casino official said Sayers was not employed by Red Rock and his new endeavor could be tied to a management company that supplies celebrity hosts for similar functions. During his most recent employment stint in the KU athletic department, Sayers was paid $150,000 annually, and Zenger said he had no plans to replace him. “When his schedule permits, Gale will continue to join us in athletic department outreach activities,” Zenger said, noting that any future association with KU would not be on a paid basis.

BRIEFLY Kansas golf team takes 16th at UCF ORLANDO, FLA. — The Kansas University women’s golf team finished in 16th place after the final round of the 18-team UCF Challenge on Tuesday.

“We’ll have to defend better,” Henrickson said. “When you lose someone who’s able to score like that, you don’t have as much wiggle room. But the defensive end, we can control that.” That will be particularly important tonight against Iowa State’s dangerous trio of post players, Hallie Christofferson, Chelsea Poppens and Anna Prins, who combined average 33 points and 21 rebounds per game. “Every freshman post I’ve ever taken up there, (ISU coach) Bill Fennelly has flare-screened the fool out of them and jacked up threes all night on us,” Henrickson said. “I do know that about them. Poor Carolyn just got picked on her freshman year up there, so we’ll anticipate the same thing this time.” Although the Jayhawks lead the all-time series, 44-27, the two have split their season series in three of the past four years, and KU has not won in Ames since 2006. The Cyclones have won three straight at home and are 10-2 at Hilton Coliseum this season. They had a three-game winning streak snapped last weekend at Texas Tech, when they fell to the Red Raiders, 51-41. “They’ve played really well since they were here,” Henrickson said. “They’re a team on a run right now.”

HIGH SCHOOL BOWLING

Lions sweep Firebirds in season finale By Benton Smith basmith@ljworld.com

Although Tuesday marked Senior Night for Free State High’s bowling team, the Firebirds’ rivals from Lawrence High stole the show at Royal Crest Lanes. The Lions’ boys and girls swept their FSHS counterparts in the regular-season finale for both schools. The LHS boys didn’t exactly think the win was a sure thing. They were confident coming in, but after a slow start for the team, junior Austin Bennett actually thought the Firebirds were going to win — a scenario that would’ve bummed out Lawrence’s high roller, who finished with a 655 series. Bennett and his teammates rejoiced when the final score was announced over the speakers: Lawrence 2,534, Free State 2,419. Given the stage of a city showdown, Bennett said the victory was especially sweet. “We know everybody on their team, so it’s more fun,” he said. The Lawrence girls, who scored 2,100, won by an even larger margin than the boys in the dual — Free State finished at 1,832. Lions sophomore Kierstan Warren, whose 612 series led all the girls, said this victory brought her team some extra joy, too. “Everybody always talks about LHS like it’s the older school. Free State’s the newer one. They’re kicking everybody’s butt in every sport,” she said. “Well, this time in bowling it didn’t happen that way.” Warren said it is up to the bowlers from both schools to focus on the lanes during the rivalry dual, because it can be intense. “The parents get worked up just like the kids do,” she said. It was a senior who led the way for the Free State girls at the dual. Meredith Baker finished with a series of 457. “I’ve never been able to do that before. It was totally something new,” she said. However, Baker added, the Firebirds were disappointed they couldn’t get the win with four seniors — Baker, Haley Hanson, Olivia Marshall and Danielle Stringer — in the lineup. FSHS boys senior Nate Fiester described his team’s loss as a “sad deal” on a “fun day.” The Firebirds, with their two

however, for the home team. Though FSHS let a 14-point first-half lead slip out of its grasp and fell behind in the fourth quarter, the Firebirds buckled down on defense in the final four minutes, holding SMNW scoreless after it took a 45-43 lead on a basket by Fields. Junior backup forward Kyle McFarland cut to the hoop and caught a precise pass from Patterson to tie the game at 45 with 3:35 to play. Both teams failed to put points on the board again until Knighton made one of two free-throw attempts with 18 seconds left. Foth rebounded Knighton’s miss and got the ball ahead to Horner, but the sophomore guard missed a layup contested by Patterson with slightly more

Even though they couldn’t keep it up, Fiester said Free State rolled well enough to save face. “Basically, all our scores got us past that embarrassment point,” he said with a laugh. A junior, Chase Taylor, led Free State’s boys with a 639 series. He was neck-and-neck with Bennett and LHS senior Isaiah Ross for the high score and ended up finishing just three pins behind Ross and 16 behind Ben-

Said Law: “We made enough plays, got some touches inside, made enough free throws — I think we missed some (Free State was 5-for-8 in the fourth quarter) — we made enough (and) executed beautifully down the stretch until the last play.” The Cougars were in a 22-8 hole after the first quarter, when Free State played its best basketball, and steadily crept closer.

Jordan Jump, a FSHS junior, rolled a 614 series, as did LHS senior Pace Leggins. Rebecca McNemee had a 530 series for Lawrence’s girls. Free State junior Emily Reno rolled a 450. Both Free State and Lawrence will bowl at the Sunflower League Meet Friday at Shawnee.

Northwest finally took its first lead of the game on a Logan Unrein basket late in the third quarter. After the game, Law said his team opened the night with some great play, but it was unable to keep that up. “Just like adversity, you’ve got to know how to handle prosperity,” he said. Still, the coach was proud of his players for not letting the victory get away from them after things headed south. “I think you’d be hardpressed to find a lot of people other than the guys on the (FSHS) bench that thought once they (SMNW) took that lead we were going to be able to get back and get a win,” the coach said. Cameron Dabney scored 10 of his 13 points in the first half for Free State. Fields led SMNW with 13 points. At 7 p.m. Friday, the Firebirds play host to Olathe North.

Shots don’t fall for LHS in 57-42 loss to SMS By Jesse Newell jnewell@ljworld.com

OVERLAND PARK — Lawrence High coach Mike Lewis said his team was never able to grab offensive momentum. After missing a few open shots early, LHS wasn’t able to right itself Tuesday, falling 57-42 to Shawnee Mission South. “When you’re stumbling and missing those shots, it’s hard to buckle in between the ears and step up and make the shots,” Lewis said. “Good teams can step up and survive those mental lapses and those moments when you’re not feeling good. And we weren’t a good enough team tonight to get through that.” The Lions made just 13 of 47 field goals (28 percent). That included 7-for30 shooting in the second half (23 percent). “I feel like we got good shots, and we needed to get good shots,” LHS senior guard KJ Pritchard said. “We were kicking the ball out really well. We were making the extra pass. They just weren’t falling tonight.” Lewis said that he felt like his team was sped up offensively. Part of that could have been because of South’s 6-foot-7 forward Josh Pedersen, who blocked three shots in the first half and four overall. “I thought they were really solid defensively, and you’ve got to give them credit,” Lewis said. “If we’re shooting 28 percent, something’s happening on the defensive end.” Defensively, LHS was hurt early by buzzer-beaters. The Lions trailed just 9-8 in the final seconds of a slow-paced first quarter before South’s Eric Weber knocked in a three-pointer. That came at the end of a 50-second possession, as South held for the final shot. Pedersen also extended South’s lead at the half,

LHS also struggled holding down South’s 6-foot-6 forward Dylan Christie, who displayed his ability to play on the perimeter. The senior made a threepointer in each of the first three quarters, finishing the game 3-for-3 from three-point range. “He was on our scouting report. He’s an insideoutside guy,” Lewis said. “He stepped up in a game like this and made his shots.” LHS trailed just 35-27 heading into the fourth quarter, but a few minutes later, a 9-0 South run pushed the lead to 50-33 with 1:51 left. The Lions made just five of 23 three-point attempts (22 percent). “It was a rough game against a really good team,” Pritchard said. “We really couldn’t buy a basket in the first half and still struggled in the second half.” Pritchard led LHS, scoring 21 points on 7-for-14 shooting. Logan Henrichs contributed nine points,

FSHS girls frustrated by SMNW in uncharacteristic 57-44 loss By Benton Smith

basmith@ljworld.com

An unexpected change in personality didn’t do Free State High’s girls basketball team any good Tuesday night against Shawnee Mission Northwest. The Firebirds weren’t themselves in a 57-44 home loss to the Cougars, leaving FSHS coach Bryan Duncan bewildered. “We seemed very disinterested and unorganized tonight, really throughout,” Duncan said following the defeat. With SMNW senior guard Sarah Schmidt lighting it up in the first quarter — she scored Northwest’s first 13 points before finishing with a game-high 18 — Free State (12-5) trailed most of the game. After the Firebirds went 6-for-29 from the floor in the first half, the Cougars (12-5) led 24-15 at the half and began pulling away in the fourth quarter, when Northwest backup post Amanda Hoelting scored seven of her 11 points. In the meantime, Chelsea Casady’s four fourthquarter points were a team-best in that same span for Free State, and SMNW outscored the home team 16-10 in the final eight minutes. FSHS senior guard Jackie Garcia, who finished with 14 points, six rebounds and three assists, said it was an uncharacteristic performance for the Firebirds. “Every single one of us got really frustrated and lost our composure and just got down on ourselves,” Garcia said.

FREE STATE’S LYNN ROBINSON, FRONT, DRIVES on Shawnee Mission Northwest’s McKayla Ross on Tuesday at FSHS. “When we do that, we don’t play well at all.” She said going through on-court adversity doesn’t usually have that kind of impact on Free State. “We’ve had certain players do that in the past, but never all five people on the floor,” Garcia said. “So when that happened, everything just fell apart. We were not clicking at all.” The only quarter when Free State appeared to have its usual fight was the third. That’s when Garcia started asserting herself in the half-court and scored 10 points. But the Firebirds’ 8-for-12 shooting in the third didn’t help them any on the defensive end of the floor. Sophomore McKayla Ross scored seven of her 13 points for

SMNW in that stretch, and the Cougars entered the fourth with a 41-34 lead. Duncan wished he had an answer for the disappointing performance. He said the Firebirds lost their team philosophy against SMNW, because they didn’t move the ball well on offense, and defensively they were getting beat on backdoor cuts. “We can be a really good team,” Duncan said. “As individuals we’re just not talented enough to be successful, and we talk about that all the time.” Kennedy Kirkpatrick also scored 14 points for Free State to go with seven boards, and Casady finished with eight points and six boards. Still, there was little to get excited about for the Firebirds. “We kind of just got our butts kicked tonight,” Duncan said. “That kind of sums it up.” At 5:30 p.m. Friday, Free State plays host to Olathe North.

L AWRENCE J OURNAL -W ORLD

Simplify shopping by preparing grocery plan Q:

I know that it is healthier and cheaper to buy groceries at the store and prepare meals at home, but the choices at the supermarket are overwhelming. Do you have a guide to use?

A:

I agree, it can be confusing. But, before we “go shopping,” let’s review first what the average person should be emphasizing for a “healthy heart” — because February is American Heart Month. The American Heart Association recommends that you eat a wide variety of nutritious foods daily. Follow these basic guidelines when planning weekly meals:

Fruits and vegetables: At least 4.5 cups per day.

 Fish (preferably oily fish): At least two 3.5-ounce servings per week.

 Nuts, legumes and seeds: At least 4 servings per week.

 Processed meats: No more than 2 servings per week.

 Fiber-rich whole grains: At least three 1-ounce-equivalent servings per day.

 Saturated fat: Less than 7 percent of total energy intake.

 Trans fat: Strive for zero grams per day.

 Sodium: Less than 1,500 milligrams per day.

Sugar-sweetened beverages: No more than 450 calories (36 ounces) per week. Here are some tips to help you be heart-smart at the grocery store and choose good-for-you foods. Let’s go shopping...

Vegetables and fruits

 Be sure to buy and eat plenty of fresh or frozen fruits and vegetables. Fruits and vegetables that are deeply colored — such as spinach, carrots, peaches and berries — tend to be higher in vitamins and

minerals than others, such as potatoes and corn.

 When fresh foods aren’t available, choose frozen or canned vegetables and fruits in water without added sugars, saturated or trans fat, or salt.

 Buy more fruits and vegetables that are good sources of fiber, including beans, peas, oranges, bananas, strawberries and apples.

 Stock up on raw vegetables for snacks such as carrot and celery sticks, broccoli, cherry tomatoes and cauliflower.

 For desserts, buy fresh or canned fruits (in water without added sugars).

Don’t buy lots of fruit juice. It doesn’t provide the fiber whole fruit does and it’s not as good at satisfying hunger.

 Some cholesterollowering medications may interact with grapefruit, grapefruit juice, pomegranate and pomegranate juice. Please talk to your health care provider about any potential risks.

Milk, cheese, butter and eggs

 Select fat-free (skim) or low-fat (1 percent) milk.

 Avoid milk that contains added flavorings such as vanilla, chocolate or strawberry. They usually have added sugars and calories.

 Choose fat-free, lowfat or reduced-fat cheeses.

Use egg whites or egg

substitutes instead of egg yolks. (Substitute two egg whites for each egg yolk in recipes that call for eggs.)

 Choose soft margarines that contain “0 grams trans fat” instead of buying butter. (These margarines usually come in tubs.)

 Don’t buy a lot of butter, cream and ice cream. Save those for special occasions and, even then, limit how much you eat. These foods have more saturated fat than whole milk.

 Watch out for the saturated and/or partially hydrogenated fats hidden in casseroles, bakery goods, desserts and other foods. Read the Nutrition Facts label to determine the saturated fat, trans fat and cholesterol content of foods you’re considering.

Breads, baked goods

 Choose whole-grain, high-fiber breads, such as those containing whole wheat, oats, oatmeal, whole rye, whole grain corn and buckwheat. Choose breads and other foods that list whole grains as the first item in the ingredient list.

 Limit the amount of bakery products you purchase, including doughMeat, poultry, nuts, pies, cakes and fish and nuts cookies. Look instead for

Buy and prepare more fat-free or low-fat and fish. You should eat one serving of grilled or baked fish at least twice a week. (A serving is roughly the size of a checkbook.) Good examples of fish to buy include salmon, trout and herring.

 Choose lemon juice and spices to eat with fish. Don’t add cream sauces.

 Stay away from fried fish. It’s usually high in fat — often trans fat.

 Choose cuts of red meat and pork labeled “loin” and “round”; they usually have the least fat.

 Buy “choice” or “select” grades of beef rather than “prime,” and be sure to trim off the fat before cooking.

 When buying or eating poultry, choose the leaner light meat (breasts) rather than the fattier dark meat (legs and thighs). Try the skinless version or remove the skin yourself.

 Select more meat substitutes such as dried beans, peas, lentils or tofu and use them as entrees or in salads

CHEF BARBARA KAFKA HAS TACKLED many culinary trends over her career, most recently gluten- and lactose-free cooking. Tandoori chicken meets both requirements.

Flavorful tandoori chicken is gluten-, lactose-free The Associated Press

During the many decades of her career, Barbara Kafka has worked hard to bring to home cooks recipes that are delicious, approachable and ahead of the culinary curve. This time she has tackled gluten- and lactosefree cooking, drawing on a wide vocabulary of ingredients and techniques to create richly flavored dishes that seem lacking in nothing. This fragrant tandoori chicken hits the mark in both authenticity and dietary restrictions. Make an extra portion of the sauce to use on salmon, which takes to it especially well.

Tandoori Chicken Breasts Start to finish: 1 hour 10 minutes (15 minutes active) Servings: 4 1 1/2 tablespoons safflower oil, divided 1 medium yellow onion, cut into 1/4-inch dice (1 1/2 cups) 3 cloves garlic, thinly

When the oil shimmers, reduce the heat to low and add the onion, garlic, cardamom, cayenne, turmeric, cumin, mace, mustard, cinnamon, nutmeg, pepper and salt. Cook until the onions begin to turn translucent, about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Transfer the contents of the pan, scraping with a

Place the chicken breasts flat on a plate, cover with plastic wrap, then refrigerate for 30 minutes. Heat the broiler with a rack set in the middle of the oven. Use the remaining 1/2 tablespoon of oil to lightly coat a 10-by-8-inch baking or roasting pan. Place the chicken breasts in an even layer in the pan.

 Remember that most store-baked goods are made with egg yolks, saturated fats and/or trans fats. (Read the Nutrition Facts label to determine the saturated fat, trans fat and cholesterol content.) Check for store-baked goods that are made with polyunsaturated or monounsaturated oils, skim or reduced-fat milk, and egg whites — or make your own.

 Instead of buying a raisin bran muffin, buy a loaf of raisin bread and enjoy a slice for breakfast or lunch.

Oils, dressings and shortenings

 Buy and use fats and oils in limited amounts.

 When you must use oils for cooking, baking or in dressings or spreads, choose the ones lowest in

saturated fats, trans fats and cholesterol — including canola, corn, olive, safflower, sesame, soybean and sunflower oils.

 Stay away from palm oil, palm kernel oil, coconut oil and cocoa butter. Even though they are vegetable oils and have no cholesterol, they’re high in saturated fats.

 Buy a nonstick pan or use nonstick vegetable spray when cooking.

 Choose reduced-fat, low-fat, light or fat-free salad dressings (if you need to limit your calories) to use with salads, for dips or as marinades. Better yet, use oil and vinegar (such as balsamic) for salad dressings. — Susan Johnson is an Extension agent in family and consumer sciences with K-State Research and Extension-Douglas County, 2110 Harper St. She can be reached at 843-7058.

Roll back calories on Swedish meatballs By Rocco DiSpirito For The Associated Press

Swedish meatballs are such a retro potluck throwback, they are simply rolling in ironic hipness. Meaty, tender, juicy, sweet and sour, they are addictively easy to spear with a toothpick and pop one after another at a party. That’s why I love to serve them at my Oscar party. But I do it with a difference. There are countless recipes for Swedish meatballs, but most aren’t all that dietfriendly. Most varieties pack nearly 74 calories and more than 4 grams of fat per meatball. I knew I could do better. So I mixed and matched to come up with a lighter, healthier version of this popular appetizer. I cut the fat by using extra-lean ground turkey breast, 96 percent lean ground beef sirloin, lowsodium (and fat-free) chicken broth, olive oil cooking spray and evaporated fat-free milk (traditional recipes call for heavy cream). Then I stirred in just enough puffed brown rice, egg white and arrowroot (a cornstarchlike thickener) to hold everything together. The result is a delicious meatball with 37 calories and less than a gram of fat per meatball. Swedish meatballs traditionally are accompanied by lingonberry preserve, which is both hard to find and loaded with sugar. Instead, I used nosugar spiced cranberry sauce, and I was good to go. Try them and you’ll be a star on Oscar night, too. Tip: If you can’t find Steel’s Gourmet Cranberry Sauce (my preferred brand of no-sugar cranberry sauce) you can make your own. In a medium microwave-safe bowl, combine 1/2 cup fresh or frozen unsweetened whole cranberries, 1/4 cup water, 3 packets of

THIS SWEDISH MEATBALL RECIPE by Rocco DiSpirito has only 37 calories and 1 gram of fat per meatball. stevia sweetener, 1 tablespoon agave nectar and a pinch of salt. Cover loosely with plastic wrap, then microwave on high until the cranberries pop and the mixture boils, about 2 minutes. Carefully remove the plastic wrap and mash the mixture with a fork or potato masher to make a chunky cranberry sauce.

Swedish Meatballs Start to finish: 40 minutes Makes 20 meatballs 8 ounces extra-lean ground turkey breast 6 ounces 96 percent lean ground beef 2/3 cup fat-free, reduced-sodium chicken broth, divided 1/2 cup chopped yellow onion 1 egg white 2 cups puffed brown rice cereal Salt Red pepper flakes 1/4 cup evaporated fatfree milk 1 teaspoon arrowroot

powder Olive oil cooking spray 1/4 cup no-sugar spiced cranberry sauce (such as Steel’s Gourmet) Heat the oven to 375 F. In a large bowl, combine the turkey breast and ground beef and mix gently. In a blender, combine 1/3 cup of the chicken broth, the onion and egg white. Blend until finely chopped, about 15 seconds. Add the puffed rice and blend to make a thick paste. Add the egg mixture to the meats, then season with salt and red pepper flakes as desired. Divide the mixture into 20 even mounds, using about 1 tablespoon each. Shape each into a ball using slightly wet hands to help prevent sticking. Coat a large nonstick saute pan with cooking spray and heat over medium-high. Working in batches if necessary, once the pan is hot add the meatballs, leaving about 1/2-inch space between them. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes, or until browned on the bottoms. Roll the meatballs onto

the other side and brown evenly, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove the meatballs from the pan. Add the remaining chicken broth to the pan and bring to a simmer. In a small bowl, mix the evaporated milk with the arrowroot, then stir into the chicken broth. Cook and stir for about 10 seconds, then return the meatballs to the pan, then place pan in the oven and bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the meatballs are cooked through. Transfer the meatballs to a serving platter. Insert short skewers into each meatball. Set the saute pan over medium heat and cook the sauce for 1 to 2 minutes, or until slightly thickened. Spoon the sauce over the meatballs and serve with the cranberry sauce.

Return to saucepan; cover to keep warm. Meanwhile, heat oven to 375 degrees. Spray 13x9inch (3-quart) glass baking dish with cooking spray. In 2-quart saucepan, heat whipping cream, mustard, salt and red pepper to boiling. Reduce heat; stir in cheddar cheese with wire whisk until smooth. Pour sauce over macaroni. Stir in tomatoes and onions. Pour into baking dish. In small bowl, mix Parmesan cheese and bread crumbs. Stir in oil. Sprinkle over top of macaroni mixture. Bake uncovered 15 to 20 minutes or until edges are bubbly and top is golden brown. Success tip: Be sure to use whipping cream when making the sauce for this decadent mac ‘n cheese.

Shamrock Shake is back Fork NEW YORK (AP) — McDonald’s Corp. is making its Shamrock Shake available nationally for the first time. The fast food chain says the minty green milkshake will be available in all 14,000 U.S. restaurants through March 25. The suggested price for the shake is $1.89, although prices will differ by market. Since the shake was first introduced in 1970, McDonald’s says it has left it up to local market operators to decide whether to offer the seasonal treat in the weeks leading up to St. Patrick’s Day on March 17. That has helped fuel a cult-like following of the green-colored shake. Last year, McDonald’s said about half its stores offered the shake.

Loyal fans may notice some changes, however; McDonald’s last year began serving all its shakes in clear plastic cups. All shakes are also now topped with whipped cream and a cherry to give them a more dessert-like appearance. The Shamrock Shake weighs in at 540 calories and 16 grams of fat for a small, or 840 calories and 24 grams of fat for a large, according to nutritional information on the McDonald’s website. The shake is made of reduced fat vanilla ice cream and syrup. A representative for McDonald’s, Ashlee Yingling, said the decision to offer the shake nationally was based on customer feedback. The Shamrock Shake is also available in Ireland.

this with egg whites, and that is a good option if A) you aren’t afraid of raw eggs, and B) you don’t have any meringue powder laying around. But I did happen to have a bag of meringue powder I’d picked up at a cookie decorating class at Sweet! in downtown Lawrence, so I was happy to take the easier (and potentially safer) way out.

Stiff Royal Icing for Piping 4 cups confectioner’s sugar 3 tablespoons meringue powder 1/2 cup warm water

1 teaspoon vanilla extract (or other extract, whatever you like) Combine the dry ingredients thoroughly, and then beat with a mixer after adding the water and extract on a medium high speed for about five minutes, until the icing is glossy and forms stiff peaks. Affix your pastry bag with a fairly small piping tip, and spoon some frosting in. I like to fold the bag down halfway, spoon about a half a cup of icing in, push it down to get the air out, twist above the frosting, and then begin frosting. Too much frosting in the bag and you’ll have a mess on your hands. Literally, the frosting might squeeze out the top of the bag and get all over your hands. If you are a better

person than I, you will pipe slowly and carefully around your cookies and make intricate shapes. But I don’t have time for precision like that. I slapped those hearts out as fast as I could. I did about 100 cookies, and still had a lot of icing left with which to fill. Take your icing bowl back to the mixer and add another half a cup of water, and beat again. Keep adding more water until you have a runny frosting that, when dropped by a spoonful back into itself does not maintain its shape, but disappears rather quickly back into the contents of the bowl. Then I switched to a “fill” tip (though a squeeze bottle like the kind you get ketchup and mustard in in restaurants works very well) and

began filling in the cookies. This is fun for me because it’s not precise. I just drop a dollop of the runny fill icing onto the cookie and kind of smoosh it around until it’s covered the required area. Lay your finished cookies flat for several hours to be sure they are dry. You can then pipe words or decorations on with more of the stiff royal icing if you remembered to reserve some. I didn’t, so I just decorated everything with sprinkles and was happy. Here’s hoping these babies made some LMH employees feel loved and happy and a little soft and crumbly, just like the cookies. — Read more of Megan Stuke’s Flying Fork blog at Lawrence.com.

Valentine’s cookies send love

I

t’s no secret that I’m not much of a baker. I’m a goddess of cake mixes, ice cream parfaits, roasted pears and other “fake out” desserts. One of the few things I do well is make cookies, and even then, I only have a handful of go-to recipes that work well for me. One of those favorite recipes is my sugar cookie recipe, which I whip out several times a year, for Christmas, birthdays and Valentine’s Day. This year, I made a lot of heart-shaped cookies, and I wanted to fancy them up a bit because I’d be sending most of them to the Lawrence Memorial Hospital Valentine’s Day bake sale. This gave me some pause, seeing as I am not coordinated, have zero artistic talent, and am a general failure at all things confection. Still, I wanted to try my hand at making royal icing and outlining the cookies and then flooding them instead of using my usual method of dumping some orange juice in powdered sugar and spilling a bit of it over each cookie. Also, just for fun, I wanted to make cookie “pops,” similar to but not to be confused with the cake pops that have recently captured the imaginations of bakers and bloggers far and wide. Because everything is more fun if it’s on a stick. So I pulled out all my Valentine cookie cutters, and put Lindsey to work in my kitchen while our kids ate their weight in Rice Krispie treats and frozen pizzas. Mothers of the year, we are. My trusty sugar cookie recipe (http://bit.ly/xLbNvS) did not fail, even with doubling it to produce the volume of cookies we were looking for. We cut out small hearts, X’s and O’s, big hearts, double hearts and lips, and in most of them we inserted a stick about a third of the way into the bottom of the cookie. If you are going to do these cookie pops, you need to roll your cookies out thicker than you normally would, so be prepared to get a few less cookies per batch than you might be used to getting. Tired from the cutting, rolling, baking and repeating, I put the cookies away after they cooled to frost the next day. I made a simply royal icing. First, you want a stiff icing, for piping around the exterior of the cookie or for forming out whatever shapes you think you will need (for example, I freehanded small center “holes” in the middle of my “O” cookies.)

THIS CRANBERRY CHEDDAR MACARONI AND CHEESE boasts whole-wheat pasta, cauliflower and sweetly grown-up cranberry cheddar for a healthier, more adult version of that childhood classic, mac ’n cheese.

Mac and cheese grows up ————

Flavors mature, but dish still comfort food By Sarah Henning sarah@ljworld.com

There’s something especially comforting and harmonious about macaroni and cheese. Warm noodles, creamy sauce and satiating heft make mac and cheese a favorite with even the youngest eaters. Yet, for the adult who abhors the idea of doing the powdered cheese and noodle routine, the old favorite can seem a bit, well, childish.

Never fear, cheesypasta lovers, there are plenty of ways to elevate good ol’ mac and cheese to something a bit more grown-up and gourmet, such as by adding vegetables, herbs, bread crumbs or favorite meats. But the biggest taste elevator of all? The cheese, of course. We talked with three local cheese mongers to get the scoop on what cheeses are perfect for making this childhood favorite all grown-up.

Cheeses to try Menage: Ryan Glenn, cheese department manager at The Merc, 901 Iowa, says this mixed-milk cheese from Wisconsin has the smooth and creamy texture necessary to make your mac and cheese totally dreamworthy. Gruyere: An aged Swiss cheese, gruyere is a firm cow’s milk cheese. Mary Prager, deli/Italian manager at Hy-Vee, 4000 W. Sixth

St., says it’s popular as a baking cheese and would melt beautifully over pasta. Asadero: A tangy yellow Hispanic cheese, Asadero would mix well with mozzarella and cheddar for an especially worldly mac and cheese combo, says Glenn. Gouda: Ryan Michael, dairy manager at Checkers Foods, 2300 La., suggests the addition of Gouda, a creamy, semi-hard cheese made of cow’s

milk. Named for a town in the Netherlands, Gouda is considered sweet and fruity with a taste that matures over time. Sharp cheddar: Glenn suggests Milton Creamery’s Prairie Breeze brand because it’s a bit sweeter and tangier than typical sharp cheddars, but still has a considerably grown-up taste. — Staff writer Sarah Henning can be reached at 832-7187.

MAC ’N CHEESE RECIPES Cranberry Cheddar Macaroni and Cheese 1 tablespoon butter 1 cup chopped yellow onion 1/2 teaspoon sea salt 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 4 cups cauliflower florets (about 3/4 pound) 3 cups 2 percent milk, divided 1 pound whole-wheat elbow macaroni 2 tablespoons flour 1/2 pound cranberry cheddar, shredded (about 2 cups) Melt butter in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add onion, salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden brown, 6 to 8 minutes. Add cauliflower and 1 cup of the milk, reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer until cauliflower is very tender, about 25 minutes. Carefully transfer to a food processor and purée until smooth; set aside. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil, add macaroni and cook until al dente, about 10 minutes; drain well and return empty pot to the stove. Whisk flour and remaining 2 cups milk together in the pot and bring to a simmer over medium heat, whisking constantly. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer just until thickened, about 2 minutes. Remove pot from the heat and add cheese a handful at a time,

gently stirring until melted. Fold in the puréed cauliflower mixture, then stir in the macaroni and salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately. — Recipe from www.wholefoodsmarket.com.

Green Chile Macaroni and Cheese 8 ounces (2 1/3 cups) uncooked dried penne pasta 16 (3/4-ounce) slices American cheese, quartered 3/4 cup milk 1 (4-ounce) can chopped green chiles 1/4 cup roasted red pepper, cut into 1/2-inch pieces 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin 2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh cilantro Heat oven to 350 degrees. Cook pasta according to package directions; drain. Keep warm. Meanwhile, combine all remaining ingredients in 2-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until cheese is melted. Add sauce to cooked pasta; mix well to coat. Pour mixture into ungreased 2-quart casserole dish. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until bubbly around edges. — Recipe from www.landolakes.com.

Wine of the Week FOR FEBRUARY 13TH  FEBRUARY 19TH

ARGIOLAS

2010 ‘Costamolino’ Vermentino Di Sardegna

Sardinia, Italy

Wine Advocate – June, 2011: 89 POINTS “The 2010 Vermentino di Sardegna Costamolino is gorgeous. Here, too, the fruit heads towards the tropical end of the spectrum. Hints of papaya, passionfruit, flowers and light honey are woven together in a fabric of notable elegance. Clean, mineral notes appear later, adding proportion and framing the finish beautifully. This is a totally convincing, harmonious white. Costamolino is 90% Vermentino and 10% assorted indigenous grapes. Malolactic fermentation is partially blocked, but the wine nevertheless possesses plenty of richness.”

(First published in The Mirror, Wednesday, February 8, 2012) NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING AND PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD CONCERNING WATER SERVICE RATE INCREASE REQUEST Suburban Water, Inc., d/b/a Suburban Water Company (Suburban Water), has filed an application with the Kansas Corporation Commission (Commission) requesting a $296,280 increase in rates for water service representing an annual revenue increase of approximately 28.1%. A customer using 7,000 gallons per month will see its monthly bill increase by $19.15. Suburban Water is a privately-owned water public utility serving approximately 1,530 residential and small commercial customers in Leavenworth County, Kansas, with offices located at 1216 N. 155th Street, Basehor, Kansas. In its application, Suburban Water stated the $296,280 increase is necessary to recover the increase in the normal cost of service items such as operating and maintenance expenses and payroll and employee benefit expenses which have increased since March 2007. It is also seeking to recover the 7.5% increase in the cost of water under its Board of Public Utilities, an administrative agency of the Unified Government of Wyandotte County/Kansas City, Kansas (BPU), water supply contract that went into effect on January 1, 2012. The Company is also seeking approval of its contract amendment with BPU and a Purchase Water Adjustment tariff that would allow the utility to pass through future water supply costs to customers without having to file a general rate case. Suburban Water’s last general rate case was filed in 2007. A comparison of the current and proposed rates is as follows: Customer Charge 1

CURRENT RATE $20.00

Commodity Charge per 1,000 gallons

$7.86

PROPOSED RATE $21.00 $9.33

REGULATORY RESPONSIBILITY The Commission regulates public utilities including home telephone, natural gas, electric and water companies, as well as motor carriers, oil and gas pipeline, and oil and gas producers. The Commission’s regulatory oversight of public utilities primarily pertains to rates and terms of service. In order to ensure that customers of regulated utilities are provided sufficient and efficient service at just and reasonable rates, utilities may not change their rates without Commission approval. PUBLIC HEARING The Commission has scheduled a public hearing to provide Suburban Water customers an opportunity to ask questions and make comments about the proposal. The public hearing is scheduled as follows: Tuesday, February 21, 2012, beginning at 6:00 p.m., Community Library, 1400 North 158th Street, Basehor, Kansas 66007. Any person requiring special accommodations at the hearing under the Americans with Disabilities Act needs to provide notice to the Commission at least 10 days prior to the scheduled hearing by calling: (785) 271-3140. PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD Suburban Water customers who are unable to attend the public hearing may submit written comments. The Commission will accept written comments from Suburban Water’s customers through May 1, 2012. Comments regarding this case should reference Docket No. 12 SUBW 359 RTS and may be e mailed to public.affairs@kcc.ks.gov or sent to the Kansas Corporation Commission, Office of Public Affairs and Consumer Protection, 1500 S.W. Arrowhead Road, Topeka, Kansas 66604 4027. EVIDENTIARY HEARING An evidentiary hearing has been scheduled for May 7, 2012, through May 9, 2012, beginning at 9:00 a.m. in the Commission’s First Floor Hearing Room, 1500 SW Arrowhead Road, Topeka, Kansas 66604 4027. At this hearing, the Commission Staff, Citizens’ Utility Ratepayer Board (CURB), company representatives, and any interveners will present their cases to the Commission. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION A complete copy of Suburban Water’s application and supporting testimony is available on the Commission’s website at: http://www.kcc.ks.gov, searching Docket Filings for Docket No. 12 SUBW 359 RTS. If you need additional assistance or more information about the proposed rate increase or how to submit public comments to the Commission, contact the Commission’s Office of Public Affairs and Consumer Protection at 1-800-662-0027, or at public.affairs@kcc.ks.gov. Current customer charge includes first 1,000 gallons usage, proposed customer charge does not include first 1,000 gallons usage. ________

Since you work the same hours, you should both do equal amounts of housework and share laundry and cooking duties.

‘American Idol’: It’s all or none

So what ails “American Idol” (7 p.m., Fox)? The only thing people talk about is its declining ratings. As your intrepid TV-ologist, I endeavored to get to the bottom of this sad decline. But first I had to watch a whole hour’s worth. I’m not afraid to admit that I don’t really watch much “American Idol” anymore. I avoid it not because I don’t like it, but because — truth be told — I used to like it a little too much. I treat it like half gallons of ice cream or fifths of certain ambercolored beverages. It’s far easier to abstain entirely than consume them in moderation. I’m not terribly proud of myself, but I have spent hours and hours and weeks and weeks over years and years watching “Idol” hopefuls careen from yellow tickets to tearful goodbyes. I have invested far too much of my life rooting on the likes of Taylor Hicks, only to see his career take him wherever it is his career has taken him. “Idol” is not a casual habit. It’s a soul-sucking addiction and a serious investment in time wasting. So I was a little shocked, and slightly impressed, when I caught last Thursday’s episode. That night was part of Hollywood Week, when hundreds of hopefuls get winnowed out by something called the “group sing.” But before they can sing, they must form a group. So we were subject to mass hysteria and individual breakdowns. And it had almost nothing to do with music. Contestants did everything but perform. And did I mention that this went on for an hour? The producers of the show have obviously studied their program’s habit-forming nature and they have done their best to prevent any future viewers from getting an “Idol” monkey on their back. So thank you, “American Idol”! If it was your intention to use last Thursday’s show as a kind of cold turkey for the weak-willed, you’ve done an admirable job. I don’t foresee any relapses in my future. Warning: Tonight’s “American Idol” is two hours long.

Tonight’s other highlights

Bieber fever on “The Middle” (7 p.m., ABC).

A celebratory dinner gets out of hand on “Modern Family” (8 p.m., ABC).

A murder investigation leads to one near and dear on “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” (9 p.m., NBC).

An engagement party to die for on “Revenge” (9 p.m., ABC).

Elisabeth Shue (“Leaving Las Vegas”) joins the cast of “CSI” (9 p.m., CBS).

BIRTHDAYS

Actress Jane Seymour is 61. Singer Melissa Manchester is 61. “Simpsons” creator Matt Groening is 58. Model Janice Dickinson is 57. Rock singer Brandon Boyd (Incubus) is 36. Rock musician Ronnie Vannucci (The Killers) is 36. Actress Amber Riley (TV: “Glee”) is 26.

Dear Annie: A couple of my friends are recovering from illness and accidents, and their family members keep us updated through CaringBridge.org, a wonderful website. I just don’t understand why some authors know no boundaries. I recently read an update saying, “Johnny is now having a good solid stool every day.” Really? Did Johnny want that shared with the world?

JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS

For Wednesday, Feb. 15: This year keep your eye on long-term objectives. Many friends surround you, causing distraction. Juggling different elements and maintaining a high level of organization evolves in importance. If you are single, make conscious choices as to the tone of a romance. If you are attached, you might choose to polish your living skills together. Count on SAGITTARIUS. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult Aries (March 21-April 19)  Your willingness to forge a new path surprises everyone, including you. The status quo has many appealing elements. Power plays and games have no business in working with a project. Tonight: Detach from your day with a favorite pastime. Taurus (April 20-May 20)  Work with an individual on a one-on-one level. You gain insight and see life from a very different perspective. This person responds in a meaningful manner. Tonight: Chat over a quiet dinner. Gemini (May 21-June 20)  Deferring to others is smarter than getting into a situation where others make demands. Allow this freedom, and give and take. People who can be contrary suddenly can identify with a problem, having experienced it firsthand. Tonight: Be where crowds can be found. Cancer (June 21-July 22)  Stay even and mellow with an unpredictable person who does have impact over your life. Your gentle nature comes out at the same time. Steer away from a person who would use this special quality in you. Tonight: Squeeze in some exercise. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)  When surprise heads in your direction, you suddenly feel vibrant. Though the news could toss plans out of kilter, that very change reminds you that you are alive. Be open to someone very different.

Dear Annie: My husband and I work comparable hours, but I earn less than half of what he does and have little discretionary income. I come home to my “second shift,” which includes cooking, cleaning and picking up after this man, who leaves his dirty clothes, snack packaging and other things strewn about the house. Meanwhile, he runs off to play golf. After dinner, he falls asleep in front of the TV. He doesn’t even mow the lawn or do routine household maintenance. He hires out for those things. Anything he’s asked to do, he deflects by saying “I pay.” To an extent, this is true. He pays the majority of household bills. But I pay for most of the food and all of the household products (bathroom tissue, toothpaste, shampoo) that we both use. I even keep a garden to help pad our grocery bill in the summer months. I’ve told him I feel like his servant. I don’t earn enough to hire a housekeeper. And don’t tell me to go on strike. I’ve tried it, and he is perfectly content to live in a pigsty. He says I’m a clean freak. I am not. I simply cannot live in such clutter and filth. Other than this, he’s a good man, intelligent, fun,
