t wasn’t until I turned the calendar page for February that I realized we were getting an extra day. With an extra day comes an extra dessert, right? Yeah, I thought so, too. Since I’m trying to stay on a reasonably healthy streak diet-wise, I decided to come up with something tasty and low-sugar. Behold, I bring you Leap Year Pie! In place of sugar, I used little packets of Xylitol. This stuff is pretty neat. Low glycemic impact, plant-derived and possibly good for your teeth. Wanna see what we can do with it? Well, follow along at home! The night before you plan to bake, line a mesh strainer with damp cheesecloth and set it in a bowl. Scrape in one pound of ricotta cheese and set the whole getup in the fridge. The next day, dump the cheese into your mixer bowl and beat it for a few minutes on medium speed. Add four ounces of cream cheese, four packets of Xylitol (or your preferred sugar substitute), one tablespoon of vanilla and two eggs. Blend on medium speed for two minutes. Pour the mixture into a bowl and chill it in the fridge. For the crust, cut five tablespoons of cold butter into little pieces and blend them with two eggs. Add one box of chocolate sugar-free cake mix. It’ll take several minutes, but blend and scrape until a stiff dough forms. Press the dough into a ball, bundle it in plastic wrap, and refrigerate it for 20 minutes. Preheat your oven to 325 degrees. Roll out half of the dough between two sheets

of waxed paper and fit it into a greased 9-inch pie pan. Trim the edges and put the excess, with the remaining dough, back in the fridge. You can use the extra dough to make a second pie, or bake it into cookies. They bake up nicely at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes. Pour the cheese filling into the pie shell and bake it for 40-45 minutes. The center will be set, but still wiggly. Put the pie on a rack to cool. In the meantime, prepare the cherry topping. Get yourself a 12-ounce bag of frozen sweet dark cherries. Quarter the cherries and put them into a small saucepan with two tablespoons of orange juice and two packets of Xylitol. Cook and stir over medium-high heat until the mixture begins to boil. Working quickly, add two tablespoons of cornstarch and stir until the topping thickens. Remove from heat and cool in a bowl. Spread the cherry topping on the pie and chill it until you’re ready to serve.

Leap year pie You can make a “cold” version of this pie by pre-baking the crust for 8-10 minutes at 375 degrees. Prepare the filling as directed, but replace the eggs with half of a small box of sugar-free vanilla instant pudding. Spread the filling in the cooled crust (no need for further baking) and add the cherry topping. Enjoy! — Audrey Lintner can be reached at bitesighs@hotmail.com.

Department on Aging Secretary discusses Medicaid reform

K

ansas Department on Aging Secretary Shawn Sullivan stopped by the Journal-World on Feb. 6 to discuss the state’s plan to privatize the Medicaid program, and other policies regarding senior care, through a live chat on WellCommons.com. Sullivan heads the Department on Aging which is responsible for administration of Older Americans Act programs, distribution of Medicaid long-term care payments, and regulation and survey processes for several different adult care home licensure categories. Sullivan has been involved with aging services for 18 years. Before heading the Department on Aging, he was executive director of Kansas Masonic Home in Wichita, Sullivan which received a state award for its efforts in culture change and person-centered care. The following is an excerpt from the chat. The full text can be found at http:// ljw.bz/xFDLac. Moderator: Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to participate in this online chat. I am health reporter Karrey Britt and will be moderating this chat. First, can you briefly explain KanCare? In a poll, a majority of people say they don’t understand it. Shawn Sullivan: Happy to be here. Thank you for hosting. Currently, Kansas serves 383,000 seniors, persons with disabilities and low-income family and kids through the state’s Medicaid program. About two-thirds of those 383,000 are in a managed care program. The remaining populations, mainly seniors and persons with disabilities, will be moving to a managed care plan through KanCare vendors effective January 2013. The KanCare system is intended to serve Kansans through a concept called a patient-centered medical health home. The health home will allow for enhanced care coordination, particularly for those with chronic conditions and/or mental health conditions. All Medicaid consumers will be rolled into one of three KanCare companies. The state will pay these three vendors a set amount per month to manage all of that person’s care through the organizations in their “provider network.” KanCare is intended to achieve better outcomes through this health home model and decrease utilization of high cost services (emergency room, nursing facilities, etc.),

increase reliance on home and community based settings, and better integrate the mental health and medical care a person receives. I could go on and on — but that is a basic summary. gayle: This is a practical question. Once KanCare is implemented, will patients contact their physicians directly to make appointments or go through their medical home? Many clients also need transportation arranged for appointments. Will this be done directly or, again, through their medical home? Sullivan: It depends on the situation. In general, the medical home is intended to help a consumer and their family navigate the system and make sure the various needs of the consumer are met and coordinated. They will need to know about an appointment if they are to help the various systems (physicians, speciality physicians, mental health counselors, etc.) communicate and coordinate care. neuhofel: Do you feel physician (or mid-level provider) in-home visits are a valuable and cost-effective mechanism to help keep older adults in their homes? and if so, what existing state-level policies (or proposals) will help encourage providers to offer such services? Thanks, Dr. Neu Sullivan: We do feel that physician extenders are a valuable resource. Research has shown that the use of ANRPs, for example, in an enhanced care coordination role can be a very effective way to better health outcomes, increase care coordination and reduce costs to high cost services. We did ask in our KanCare request for proposal how the bidders would effectively utilize physician extenders within the new system. The patient-centered medical health home, in other states, has utilized physician extenders for some populations to increase the care coordination. The proposals for these health homes will be one of the aspects the bids, that came in on Jan. 31, will be evaluated on.

It’s about quality of life... At Advanced Homecare we don’t just sell and rent medical equipment. We provide peace of mind and a better quality of life. When you need help, you can depend on Advanced Homecare to be there.

KU’s Osher Institute offers educational opportunities without homework, tests BY EMILY MULLIGAN

Mike Yoder/Journal-World Photo

JIM PETERS is the new director of the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Kansas University, 1515 St. Andrews Drive.

ansas University’s Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, which offers courses and special events to people over 50, has a new director and plans to increase its reach and financial base. Jim Peters became the institute’s director in January and is working on partnerships with community colleges and other organizations across the state of Kansas to broadcast and provide courses beyond northeast Kansas. The Osher Institute already offers courses to 800 students at 16 sites, including KU’s Continuing Education building, 1515 St. Andrews Drive in west Lawrence, and many retirement communities in Kansas City and Topeka, as well as sites in Hutchinson, Hesston and Ulysses. Peters, who became director after seven years in marketing and professional programs with KU’s Continuing Education, also wants to increase memberships and expand the Friends of Osher fundraising arm of the organization. The Osher Institute, established at KU in 2004, offers more than 40 courses in its spring catalog,

ranging from arts to science to history. Many members are retired, but there are night classes for those still in the workforce. Most courses are taught by current and former KU faculty. “This is the most fun thing that Continuing Education does,” Peters said. “The audience comes for the pure joy of it — they’re not looking for credit or to advance their careers. There is no homework, no tests and no pressure.” Most courses consist of six hours of class time, broken down into three two-hour sessions. “It’s just long enough for people to drill down and learn something but not so long that they have to commit for a whole semester,” Peters said. Peters said that many people kept coming back for courses not only because of the educational opportunity, but also because they established friendships with classmates and instructors. “Many instructors have groupies,” he joked. Among some of the favorites: Paul Laird, KU professor of music, has established a following for his courses about Broadway musicals; Haskell Springer, retired KU English professor, teaches popular courses about poetry and literature; and Cynthia Haines, film critic and former associate

professor of film studies at the University of Texas-El Paso, teaches about movies of the past and present. Hilda Enoch, a retired junior high school teacher, searches the course schedule each semester to sign up for classes taught by her favorite instructors. She enjoys the atmosphere the instructors create in the classes. “The people that come are people that ask good questions and are interested in learning. They are all seniors who don’t really want to retire and they want to keep their minds active,” she said. Muff Kelly, a retired computer consultant, and her husband, John, a hospital architect, have been taking classes from the Osher Institute since they moved to Lawrence about five years ago. “The classes looked interesting, so we signed up for some, and we’ve been hooked ever since,” she said. “It’s the beauty of being a student without the stress of being a student.” KU’s Osher Institute is one of 117 Osher lifelong learning institutes in the United States. They were created with funding from The Bernard Osher Foundation, specifically to reach people over 50 with opportunities for education and the arts. KU’s Osher Institute achieved a milestone in 2007 when it reached 500 mem-

bers and received a $1 million grant from foundation for doing so. The fund is administered through KU Endowment and subsidizes the courses and resources. When KU obtains 1,000 members, it will receive an additional $1 million from the Osher Foundation — something Peters is working to achieve. “Continuing Education underwrites the program now, and we want to become self-sufficient. We want to keep costs low and have more public members,” Peters said. Peters hopes to increase KU’s Friends of Osher fundraising to be able to expand the Osher Institute’s programming, both in terms of course choices and locations. For example, he has met with community colleges throughout the state, and they all have expressed interest in offering courses, through closed-circuit television and/or in person. Peters said that he is even reaching out to Kansas State University and hopes to have courses on campus and in a retirement home in Manhattan this fall. And, of course, Peters is always looking for ways to recruit new participants. Muff Kelly said that she had spread the word to her friends, as well. “I think it’s a wonderful resource in Lawrence. It is fun and engaging, and I highly recommend it,” she said.

All parties need sensitivity in coming out Miranda: There may be no harder life situation for a teen than to be gay and at the point of coming out to your family. The overturning of Proposition 8 in California shows how far society has come in accepting same-sex relationships, but many gay teens and young adults still struggle to find social acceptance. While being “normal” may be overrated in the long run, as teenagers it’s what we strive to achieve. Being openly gay throws an extra variable into that plan, as teens deal with accepting themselves, then trying to find acceptance among their parents and peers. It’s a difficult task. We each have different relationships with our parents or guardians, so it’s hard to predict how any given parent will react to this news. Coming out is a delicate process, especially with parents who are uncomfortable with the idea. I suggest you start out slow and ease them into it. Remember that this is big news for them, requiring a shift in how they view their child, and how they will continue to view him or her for the rest of their lives. Parents are supposed to love their children unconditionally. Unfortunately, things aren’t always so idealistic. For a gay teen, the fight to be accepted for who you are is often a tough, uphill battle with parents. So try to give them time and patience to come around. Be ready to stand up for what they may view as your “decision” to be gay. The phrase “hope for the best, and expect the worst,” comes to mind. There are many resources out there for help, and researching your local area support groups can be a huge aid as well. Being honest with your family is a huge step, and a hard one to take, but undoubtedly necessary and worth it in the long run. Dr. Wes: In my 19 years of practice, we’ve come a long way as a society in understanding and accepting gay relation-

Double TAKE DR. WES CRENSHAW AND MIRANDA DAVIS ships. Polls indicate that for the majority of under-30s, being gay or straight is really a nonissue. For the rest of society, this trend is either wonderfully liberating or horrifically offensive. For reasons I cannot fathom, we’re sitting around in this country right now debating the wisdom of something as noncontroversial as birth control, so we can assume the issue of gay rights is far from settled in many people’s minds. I agree with Miranda. The worst thing a parent can do in confronting a gay son or daughter is to condemn them for making a “bad lifestyle choice.” The real choice is whether to be open and honest about one’s orientation, not whether they experience it as real. At the same time, there’s a growing movement among teens and young adults that leans away from labels of “gay” and “straight” and toward attraction to a given person, regardless of gender. I’ve increasingly met young people who are dating a same-sex peer but would not call themselves “gay.” They simply fell in love with that individual and do not feel encum-

bered by any one sexual expression. It is my well-honed gut instinct that this is the shape of things to come, as this generation rises from young adulthood and takes control of the world. Whether you see this as a cause for hope and joy, or fear and loathing, these distinctions will become much less prominent in my lifetime. So my best advice to parents on this topic sounds a great deal like my best advice on most topics: Try to remain calm. Your teen is learning who she is. She may act as though she’s sure, but she isn’t and the more you push against that exploration, the more she’s likely to galvanize her resistance and quit exploring. The second worst thing you can say to someone coming out is that he is “just going through a phase,” so I do not mean to imply that teens and young adults are incapable of knowing their own minds. I’m simply speaking from experience. Many teens are quite certain of their sexual orientation at 14 and remain so throughout adulthood. Others struggle mightily to figure it all out. And many are quite certain at 16 and then quite certain again at 21, even though they’ve changed orientation 180 degrees. Nothing in adolescence is so much a “phase” as it is a journey and one that comes without a clear map. Please try and remember this if your son or daughter asks to have this difficult conversation. And did I mention, “try to remain calm”? — Dr. Wes Crenshaw is board certified in family and couples psychology (ABPP) and author of the books “Dear Dr. Wes: Real Life Advice for Teens” and “Real Life Advice for Parents of Teens.” Miranda Davis is a Free State High School senior.

Pharmacists weigh in with advice about supplements BY FAMILY FEATURES

W

hen it comes to understanding which vitamins are right for you, it can be tricky to know what your body needs. For some, a multivitamin can help fill in gaps in nutrition, for others, extra calcium and vitamin D are needed to help keep bones strong and healthy. While most Americans will turn to their local pharmacist with questions concerning prescription medicines, few ask about which vitamins and supplements are right for them. In fact, many Americans don’t realize they have unlimited free access to a health expert — their local pharmacist — who can provide detailed guidance on products sold at the pharmacy. This includes everything from over-the-counter (OTC) cough and cold medicines to vitamins and supplements. A recent survey sponsored by Nature Made found that pharmacists estimate they answer questions regarding prescription medications for about half of their customers. By comparison, they estimate they answer questions about OTC products for just one in three customers (35 percent) — and when it comes to answering questions about vitamins and supplements, they estimate they do so for just one in five customers (23 percent). PHARMACIST TIPS FOR VITAMIN SUPPLEMENTS According to the National Center for Health Statistics, more than half of all U.S. adults are now taking supplements, which makes understanding the difference between quality vitamins even more crucial. Approximately nine in 10 pharmacists (93 percent) agree taking vitamins and supple-

ments is important for maintaining good overall health. When choosing between brands to recommend, pharmacists consider the following:

Product quality. Nearly nine in 10 pharmacists (85 percent) say that product quality is a very important factor when deciding whether or not to recommend a specific brand of vitamin.

Product purity. Many people may not be aware that it’s important to consider a vitamin’s purity. In fact, nearly four in five pharmacists (77 percent) say that product purity is very important in choosing whether or not to recommend a brand, and two in three (65 percent) say the same of product potency as well. TOP PHARMACIST RECOMMENDATIONS The survey also found that pharmacists were “very” and “somewhat” likely to recommend the following:

In addition to recommending fish oil to support heart health, two in three pharmacists (63 percent) are also likely to suggest flaxseed oil and about half (47 percent) recommend garlic.

Nine in 10 pharmacists recommend certain vitamins and supplements like Vitamin D to fill specific nutrition gaps.

Only about two in five pharmacists (42 percent) recommend ginkgo biloba for mental alertness.

For urinary and immune health, four in five (82 percent) recommend cranberry.

To maintain normal energy levels, nine in 10 (91 percent) recommend a B vitamin complex, and about three in four (72 percent) recommend an iron supplement. In addition, pharmacists are two times more likely to recommend a protein-based product over a caffeine-based product for maintaining energy.

CHECKING THE BALANCE Steps to maintain equilibrium important to prevent falls BY SARAH HENNING

S

ome mature health concerns are obvious: osteoporosis, heart problems, loss of hearing, diminished eyesight and weight gain. One problem that doesn’t get much attention until it’s gone is balance. At any age, balance-related falls large or small can equal bruises, strains, sprains and broken bones, though they are especially dangerous for those middle-aged and older. Yet balance just doesn’t get the splashy health headlines or community concern as those other oft-discussed maladies. “Until there’s been an injury, there’s been a fall — that’s when it becomes a concern,” says Whitney Samuelson, a personal trainer with Studio Alpha, 2449 Iowa, who says balance is usually the least of her clients’ initial concerns. Yet, addressed early — or at all — balance can be improved, decreasing your chances for a fall or injury as you age. UNDERSTANDING BALANCE Balance isn’t just a single skill, says physical therapist Dorian Logan. Rather, it’s an ability knitted together primarily from three major body systems. “The ability to balance takes a number of our body systems. Vision is one. Our tactile sense, or how we feel the ground, is another one. And then our vestibular system, which is the inner-ear system that tells us where we are in space and if our head is upright or horizontal,” says Logan, who works out of the Baldwin City office, 814 High St., of Lawrence and Baldwin Therapy Services. “All of our systems as we age decrease in their functions. Part of the reason our balance decreases and is not so good as we age is just because those three systems that are largely involved are decreasing in their ability to function.” Thus, if you begin to notice your balance is feeling shaky, it could be the result of one of those systems not working quite as well as it was previously. Logan says that

upon, preemptively or after a fall. Logan says if a therapist or doctor has identified a specific area that is causing balance issues, the other components of balance can be improved to help a patient compensate. Other important adjustments? Compensating with athome habits (like turning on lights at night), removing tripping dangers (area rugs and bath mats) and not trying to “hide” an instability or trying to “self-correct” by buying, but not learning to use, something such as a cane or walker. “I think most people who have instabilities kind of recognize that already. And sometimes they try to hide it,”

School group looks beyond closings

DEATH BY TRAIN

By Christine Metz cmetz@ljworld.com

The issue of which elementary schools to close in Lawrence is one that won’t go away. But before the school district can decide which schools to consolidate, it needs to create a long-term vision. That is the lingering conclusion that some members of the Central and East Lawrence Elementary School Consolidation Group have made. The working group has been SCHOOLS charged by the school board to recommend a way to reduce six elementary schools — Cordley, Hillcrest, Kennedy, New York, Pinckney and Sunset Hill — down to three or four within the next two years. Today, the working group will meet for the last time before passing its recommendations on to the school board. A week ago, the working group split into two philosophically different camps. One group, comprised of Cordley, New York and Hillcrest representatives, believes schools should not close. The other group, made up of Kennedy, Pinckney and Sunset Hill representatives, thinks that consolidating schools remains a valid option, but they won’t name which ones should close. The latter group met on Sunday evening to fine-tune its recommendations to the board. During the meeting, members admitted to being jaded by the six-month process. The group is refusing to name which schools should close because the majority of school board members have expressed doubts that school closures are the best option. The group’s frustration with the school board’s change of heart was clearly stated in the draft recommendation. “It is simply unfair to allow a group of volunteers to continue toiling at an immensely difficult task when a majority of you no longer see the task as valid,” it stated. Even if the group had been told to recommend closing just one school instead of two or three, the process

Cancer Center building strength ——

No matter the outcome of NCI bid, state better off for treatment By Andy Hyland ahyland@ljworld.com

Kansas University’s Cancer Center, which faces one last hurdle this week in its ongoing quest to achieve National Cancer Institute designation, will remain focused on its mission regardless of the outcome. “No matter how things shake out, we’re going to be a better cancer center next year Jensen than we were this year and a better cancer center than that several years from now,” said Roy Jensen, the director of the KU Cancer Center. The cancer center at its core is a place where dedicated scientists and doctors collaborate on the best ways to fight cancer on research and clinical fronts.

THIS UNION PACIFIC CROSSING is northeast of Lawrence and clearly marked. The rest of the country has seen dramatic drops in train fatalities in the past two decades, but Kansas’ numbers have remained steady, with about 16 fatalities per year.

Kansas fatality rate stubbornly steady By Shaun Hittle sdhittle@ljworld.com

On a clear Friday afternoon last February, Kyle Snyder, 22, of Lecompton, hit the brakes on his pickup truck as he approached the railroad tracks on East 950 Road northwest of Lawrence. Sliding on the snowpacked gravel road, Snyder’s truck couldn’t stop in time, and he was killed after

colliding with a BNSF train chugging away at 50 mph. The crossing where the fatality occurred is identified by crossbuck signs but does not have flashing lights or gates. Snyder’s death was the second train-related fatality in Douglas County in the past decade. In 2006 Jeannie NewMoon, 53, was struck and killed by a train while walking on the North

Second Street overpass in North Lawrence. Snyder would be one of 19 people killed by trains in Kansas through the first 11 months of 2011, according to statistics from the Federal Railroad Administration.

Cures for tomorrow The research programs at KU’s Cancer Center are broken down into different categories: cancer biology, cancer prevention, cancer control and population health, and drug discovery and delivery and experimental therapeutics, said Lisa Harlan-Williams, assistant director for administration at the KU center. Economic development analysts look to the center as a job creator for the area. Externally funded scientific research can bring in those high-paying jobs. In 2010, the most recent year for which figures are available, the cancer center had 143 faculty members, 430 research staff in labs and 81 administrative workers, for a total of 637 jobs in the research sector alone, said Please see CANCER, page 2A

Mother of CLO client files lawsuit claiming wrongful death By George Diepenbrock gdiepenbrock@ljworld.com

A McLouth woman has filed a lawsuit against Community Living Opportunities Inc. alleging her son, who had mental and physical disabilities, died in 2010 because of injuries he suffered at a west Lawrence residential facility. Leaders of Community Liv-

ing Opportunities, or CLO, are denying the lawsuit’s claims. The suit filed in Douglas County District Court on behalf of Josephine VanDruff claims an employee of CLO’s Monterey Way Cottage on Feb. 16, 2010, was transporting her son, Timothy D. Gibson. Because of Gibson’s physical abilities, he needed assistance to move or walk.

Teresa Christenson, associate director for administration at the center. The hours can be long. It’s not unusual for Shrikant Anant, associate director of cancer prevention and control at the cancer center, to perform administrative duties during the day and then work on the research in his lab into the night. The cancer center supports its research with four so-called “shared resources.” A biospecimens shared resource, for example, keeps several tissue or blood samples on hand in case a researcher needs some for his or her research. One such resource, the lead development and optimization resource, helps support the drug development and delivery operations, which KU officials see as one of the highlights of their research portfolio. “It’s definitely one of our differentiating aspects,” Harlan-Williams said.

Helping patients today Ever since a merger in June 2011 with the Kansas City Cancer Center, the KU Cancer Center has been able to greatly expand the number of patients it serves, bringing in 8,000 to 9,000 new patients. “That’s a pretty huge organization,” Jensen said.

The numbers probably put KU in the top 20 of all the cancer centers in the country in terms of patients served. KU’s new clinical research trial facility will add the capacity to treat between 200 and 300 patients in Phase I Clinical trials, which offer for the first time the latest drugs being tested in humans. Before the new building came on line, the cancer center had 11 Phase I trials in operation. The building will add the capacity to grow to 25 to 30 such trials. Leaders at the cancer center said the whole thing has been possible because of the financial support received from the state, the philanthropic community and others, including the voters of Johnson County, who approved a sales tax that funded the new clinical trials building. “I’m not aware of any other center in the country that has this level and mix of support,” said Raymond Perez, who’s leading the new clinical trials building. In the end, leaders said, they’re looking to provide a place where people can go to get the best cancer treatments. That’s something the state and the region didn’t have before KU’s efforts. “We’re very proud of what we’ve built and what we’ve accomplished,” Jensen said. — Higher education reporter Andy Hyland can be reached at 832-6388.

Wichita-area thieves targeting police cars WICHITA (AP) — Thieves have been breaking into law enforcement vehicles in the Wichita area and making

off with weapons and other equipment. The Wichita Eagle reported that the recent thefts from cop cars have raised concern in the law enforcement community and signal there’s a market for stolen police equipment. But it’s not clear how many of the thefts are related. Wichita police have recorded about six law enforcement vehicle breakins in the past year. The cars belonged to the Kansas Highway Patrol, Goddard police, KBI and Wichita police. Wichita police also heard of a series of burglaries last summer in Reno County, which includes Hutchinson. Stolen equipment has included a semi-automatic rifle, binoculars, protective gear and ammunition. The thefts have led the Butler County sheriff to have new sheriff’s cars equipped with alarms.

Kansas officials open to NBAF funding alternatives By John Milburn Associated Press

TOPEKA — Gov. Sam Brownback and Kansas legislative leaders are regrouping after the proposed 2013 federal budget failed to include construction dollars for a new biosecurity lab, raising questions about the project’s future. President Barack Obama’s 2013 budget proposal put no new money in for building the National Bio and Agro-Defense Facility in Manhattan near Kansas State University. In fact, the budget recommendation requires the Department of Homeland Security to reassess the project, its scope and alternatives. The news was a setback for Kansas leaders who see the new $650 million research lab as the crown jewel of the state’s efforts to be a world leader in animal health research and related industries. The project would replace an aging facility at Plum Island, N.Y. Suggestions are circulating in the Statehouse that Topeka may have to step up to fund the lab if Washington is unable in the coming years. “It’s going to be a fight. That’s the nature of what it’s going to be,” Brownback said. “I think we’re going to get this done. It’s going to be difficult as we work through the process. This is going to be an ongoing discussion, the top of everybody’s list for the state of Kansas.” Brownback was on the phone with DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano and U.S. Department of Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack to win assurances that the administration was still intent on building the NBAF and that the reassessment had nothing to do with building the lab in Kansas and everything to do with money. Kansas has already transferred land to DHS for the project, which has been cleared, and authorized $105 million in bonds to pay for construction of a central utility plant. Senate President Steve Morris, one of the biggest supporters of the project in the Legislature, said he had discussions with Brownback last week about what Kansas might

Trains

do to keep the NBAF on track. Morris declined to give details about those talks, but isn’t ready to rule out any funding sources. Morris, a Hugoton Republican, said he doesn’t “have a problem doing what we need to do, if it’s increasing our debt level modestly.” “NBAF is so important that we need to consider every viable alternative to make sure it goes forward,” he said. There’s no additional money that the state could spend in this year’s budget, but House Speaker Mike O’Neal said bonding could be part of the solution. No one is willing to say how much of the $650 million price tag the state would be willing to pick up. “I’m all for looking at other alternatives in light of the fact that the feds aren’t being very kind right now,” said O’Neal, a Hutchinson Republican. “I’m with the governor. I think the thing gets built (as planned) or built with a different financing scheme.”

Much at stake The lab is expected to be the western anchor of the so-called Animal Health Corridor stretching from Kansas State to the University of Missouri in Columbia. The corridor consists of hundreds of animal health companies researching and developing the latest and best advancements in livestock production. Kansas has banked on the NBAF serving as a global magnet for increased bioscience activity along the corridor for the next 25 years or more. Kansas overcame several challenges to win the NBAF project. It was competing with other states with much more political clout, including Texas, where President George W. Bush had been governor and many felt the lab would be awarded. But Kansas was chosen because of its proximity to cattle, a research institution and the growing animal health and bioscience industry. State officials contend they didn’t offer more to DHS for the project monetarily, but they had the intangibles that

made it more attractive. Critics haven’t relented since 2010 and they continue to pick flaws with the Kansas selection in risk assessments presented by the National Academy of Sciences. A second report is under review and expected to be released this spring or summer. Republican Sen. Pat Roberts, whose name is on the building housing Kansas State’s Biosecurity Research Institute, said this past week in Washington during a Senate Agriculture Committee meeting that he was confident that any concerns about the NBAF’s safety would be addressed during the design process. He also said Kansas would look at alternatives for funding.

Partisan jabs State Senate Minority Leader Anthony Hensley said it was ironic that the Kansas congressional delegation — all Republicans — were upset with Obama’s budget when they have been “beating the drum” for him to cut federal spending since he took office. “I don’t think it should come as any surprise that the president’s going to try to balance the budget and there are certain things that he’s going to do,” said Hensley, a Topeka Democrat. “Certainly, the decision that the administration made is one at some point that we hope will be reversed, but they have their own budget problems.” Hensley said Kansas has been a partner with the federal government in past projects and he would support doing that again with the NBAF should it come to that. “We certainly want to be a partner in this. It would just depend on how much and what the proposal would be,” Hensley said. Morris said the Obama administration is being “short-sighted” in delaying funding and construction of the NBAF, adding that the need for a research facility of this magnitude is important for the nation’s food safety and to protect public health. “Cost and scope is all relative. Can you put a cost on people’s health?” Morris said.

Edwards said, as those statistics historically were not kept. In Kansas, trespass deaths account for about a quarter of trainrelated fatalities. In the nonsuicide cases, Edwards said a lack of safety awareness comes from a public perception of slow moving trains blowing their whistles and flowing through small towns at 30 or 40 mph. But with time, trains have sped up, and in a state like Kansas, they move through frequently, she said. “The public hasn’t caught up with that,” she said. “There’s still a ways to go.” — Reporter Shaun Hittle can be reached at 832-7173.

Groups mull lawsuit against voter ID law WICHITA — A coalition of Kansas groups has been considering a legal challenge to the state’s new voter photo identification law, apparently because of the costs of documents required to get the free ID. The Kansas Voter Coalition won’t discuss specific legal strategies against the law, but Ernestine Krehbiel, president of the Kansas League of Women Voters, told The Wichita Eagle the group opposes “barriers to voting and requirement to have to pay for documents in order to vote.” “Paying to vote is a poll tax,” Krehbiel said. More than a half-dozen groups, including the Kansas chapters of the League of Women Voters and American Civil Liberties Union, make up the coalition. The Kansas coalition is consulting about the issue with the Brennan Center for Justice, a public policy and law institute at New York University.

Regents: FHSU fastest growing university HAYS — A report from the Kansas Board of Regents shows that Fort Hays State University is the fastest growing university in the state system. The Hays Daily News reports that enrollment at Fort Hays State during fiscal year 2011 was 14,707, up nearly a thousand from the year before. That increase of 5.8 percent was by far the largest increase of any regents universities. The only other institutions that grew during FY2011 were Wichita State University, up 1.8 percent, and Kansas State University, up .2 percent. FHSU has been setting enrollment records since the turn of the century, more than doubling enrollment of 5,800 during that time to 13,062 at the end of the 2011 spring semester.

‘Riverdance’ saying goodbye to North America ————

Farewell tour of production to stop in Kansas City By Mark Kennedy Associated Press

NEW YORK — When Julian Erskine last saw the American touring company of “Riverdance,” he had to smile. He was in the Segerstrom Center for the Arts on an October night in Costa Mesa, Calif., watching the high-stepping cast electrify the crowd once again despite more than a dozen years crisscrossing the nation. “To be at the back of a hall with the audience jumping to their feet at the end of the show after all these years, it’s just so gratifying and just so pleasing,” says Erskine, the show’s senior executive producer, by phone from Dublin. Even so, the end of the road is nearing. “Riverdance” is currently on an 82-city farewell North American tour that’s winding across the U.S. and Canada and ends in June. This month, the show left Texas, hit the Southeast and next goes to the Plains. “It’s certainly emotional to be saying goodbye,” says Erskine. The show has been touring continuously

conference center will allow the campus to expand its rental business. The space will accommodate 400 people with theater-style seating and 240 people with banquetstyle seating, said Laurie Brown, facilities marketing manager for the campus. The campus typically hosts anywhere between three to 10 groups in a week, Brown said. The groups that use the space must be business or educational in nature. “We don’t do weddings, that kind of stuff,” Brown said. The new area will also provide space for KU and KU Medical Center to host events. The campus intends to use the money generated from the rental space to pay down the bond on the new building, Brown said.

American tap dancers, one of whom is also a baritone soloist. Padraic Moyles, one of the principals, is dancing with a heavy heart. He joined “Riverdance” in 1997 and fell in love with his co-star and now wife, Niamh O’Connor, while in the show. While he has performed elsewhere, he says American audiences are special. “Riverdance” opened at Dublin’s Point Theatre on Feb. 9, 1995, at a time of renewed Irish optimism and pride surrounding the onset of the booming “Celtic Tiger” economy. Years of relative poverty were disappearing and being Irish had a new cool, thanks to a new generation of athletes and musicians like U2 and The Cranberries. The final North American tour — at least for now — will take the show to such Irish-heavy cities as Chicago, Kansas City, Philadelphia, St. Louis and Boston, and will conclude at Wolf Trap National Park in Vienna, Va., which will represent the 14th time “Riverdance” has played there.

2 judicial officials slain in Syria By Bassem Mroue and Brian Murphy Associated Press

BEIRUT — Gunmen in Syria staged a guerrillastyle ambush that killed a senior state prosecutor and a judge Sunday in an attack that suggested armed factions are growing bolder and more coordinated in their uprising against President Bashar Assad’s regime. The roadway slayings — reported in an oppositiondominated n o r t h e r n Assad region by the Syrian state news agency — came a day after a deadly hit-andrun attack on a political figure in the heart of the pro-Assad city of Aleppo. The targeted killings have not reached Assad’s inner circle, but they indicate a growing shift toward violent tactics by the opposition as it brings aboard more military defectors and seeks to tighten control over the small pieces of territory in its hands. The fears of a looming civil war have neighbor-

ing Jordan racing to finish a refugee camp near the Syrian border to handle a possible exodus of people fleeing for safety. Meanwhile, Egypt became the latest Arab nation to publicly snub Assad by ordering the withdrawal of its ambassador in Damascus. The Syrian government has offered some concessions, including proposing a referendum next week that could allow more political voices to challenge Assad’s Baath Party. But the opposition demands nothing short of Assad’s resignation. And the regime has not eased off its attacks on the opposition forces, which it describes as “terrorists” carrying out a foreign conspiracy to destabilize the country. In Homs in central Syria, government forces sent in reinforcements as they shelled the rebelheld Baba Amr district that has been under near constant barrage for nearly two weeks, said the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. The group said at least 14 people were killed Sunday across Syria, half of them by government troops.

Can the stock market pick the next president? By Matthew Craft Associated Press

NEW YORK — The number has been repeated so often by presidential prognosticators that it’s an article of faith: No president has been re-elected since World War II with an unemployment rate higher than 7.2 percent. But the stock market turns out to be a pretty good predictor, too. The Dow Jones industrial average has soared 62 percent since President Barack Obama took the oath of office during some of the darkest days of the Great Recession. The Dow was just below 8,000 then and stands near 13,000 today. If a recent study of stock markets and presidential elections is any guide, Obama can start preparing his second inaugural address. “There’s something to this,” says Phil Orlando, chief equity market strategist at Federated Investors, the $370 billion investment firm. There are plenty of other signs often consulted for their political forecasting power, like whether a team from the National Football Conference or

Santorum backtracks on Obama remarks ————

GOP presidential candidate says he was questioning ‘world view,’ not faith By Steve Peoples Associated Press

CUMMING, GA. — Rick Santorum on Sunday condemned what he called President Barack Obama’s world view that “elevates the Earth above man,” discouraging increased use of natural resources. The GOP presidential candidate also slammed Obama’s health care overhaul for requiring insurers to pay for prenatal tests that, Santorum said, will encourage more abortions. A day after telling an Ohio audience that Obama’s agenda is based on “some phony theology, not a theology based on the Bible,” Santorum said he wasn’t criticizing the president’s Christianity. “I’ve repeatedly said I don’t question the president’s faith. I’ve repeatedly said that I believe the president’s Christian,” Santorum told CBS’ “Face the Nation.” “I am talking about his

GOP PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE RICK SANTORUM appears on CBS’ “Face the Nation” Sunday. Santorum condemned what he called President Barack Obama’s world view that “elevates the Earth above man.” world view and the way he approaches problems in this country. I think they’re different than how most people do in America,” he said in the broadcast interview. The former Pennsylvania senator said Obama’s environmental policies

promote ideas of “radical environmentalists,” who, Santorum argues, oppose greater use of the country’s natural resources because they believe “man is here to serve the Earth.” He said that was the reference he was making Saturday in his Ohio campaign appearance when he denounced a “phony theology.” When pressed by reporters after he made the initial remark, however, Santorum made no mention of the president’s environmental policies. Instead, he suggested that Obama practices one of the “different stripes of Christianity.” Santorum walked back those comments on CBS Sunday morning. But later in the day, he again criticized Obama’s “theology” — with no reference to his environmental policies — while speaking to more than 2,000 supporters gathered at a suburban Atlanta megachurch. The president is “tram-

pling on a constitutional right,” Santorum said of the Obama administration’s recent decision to allow employees of religious schools and hospitals to have birth control covered by their insurance policies. “It is imposing his ideology on a group of people expressing their theology, their moral code,” Santorum told those gathered in the First Redeemer Church, a megachurch that hosted former presidential candidate Mike Huckabee four years ago. Obama’s campaign said Santorum’s initial remarks were another attack on the president’s faith by Republican rivals in a nominating contest that has grown increasingly bitter and negative. “It’s just time to get rid of this mindset in our politics that, if we disagree, we have to question character and faith,” said Robert Gibbs, Obama’s former press secretary, on ABC’s “This Week.”

D ES M OINES , I OWA — If Mitt Romney wins the Republican nomination for president, he’ll face the urgent task of inspiring the par- Romney ty’s conservative core and rallying them to beat President Barack Obama. Judging by his performances in the primaries and caucuses so far, and the challenge he faces next week, he’s got his work cut out for him. Even Republicans who think he’ll be the nominee worry about whether

he can generate the intensity required to beat the Democratic incumbent. These party leaders and activists, from the states voting Feb. 28 and the most contested ones ahead in the fall, say Romney has made strides toward addressing this problem. But, they say, he needs to do more to convince the Republican base that he’s running to fundamentally reverse the nation’s course, not simply manage what they see as the federal government’s mess. “I think Romney will be the nominee, but there is still tremendous work to be done,” said Sally Bradshaw, a Florida Republican and adviser to former Gov. Jeb Bush. “He has

Arizona sheriff facing long odds after gay outing By Bob Christie Associated Press

FLORENCE, ARIZ. — Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu built a reputation as a rising, conservative star by taking a hardline stance against illegal immigration, attacking the Obama administration and appearing alongside Sen. John McCain in a 2010 re-election ad in which McCain urged federal officials to just “complete the danged fence.” But, on Saturday, Babeu’s conservative image took a beating as he was forced to admit publicly that he is gay and was involved in a relationship with a Mexican immigrant who claims the sheriff threatened to have him deported if he revealed their relationship. Babeu denies any wrongdoing and has vowed to continue his battle for the GOP nomination in an extremely conservative rural congressional district. He

recognizes he is fighting an uphill battle, especially in a state where family values, as defined by a large evangelical Christian and Mormon population, often battle fierce, anti-immigrant beliefs to define conservatism. At a lengthy press conference, Babeu said he hopes voters will overlook his personal lifestyle and stick with him.

PINAL COUNTY SHERIFF Paul Babeu speaks at a news conference, Saturday in Florence, Ariz. Babeu, who’s seeking the GOP nomination for an Arizona congressional seat, has been forced to confirm he is gay amid allegations of misconduct.

His competitors think voters will reject him, with Arizona Sen. Ron Gould saying he’s sure to lose major support among the family-values voters who oppose gay marriage. Babeu previously avoided a public stance on gay rights but came out in favor them Saturday. “I can be a supporter and get out there and help articulate as we progress as a culture and a society,

that there should be individual liberties and there should be individual freedoms,” Babeu said. “For any other person to define somebody else’s relationship and say it’s not OK, that is not who we are as Americans.” Saturday’s revelation already forced Babeu to call presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s staff to say he would step down from his post as state campaign co-chairman. Some political observers think his career could be over. “There is no question that his budding congressional campaign is over,” longtime Arizona Republican political consultant Sean Noble wrote on his blog. “Because it is a Republican primary in a conservative district, it’s likely that the thing that hurts him the most is that he was in a gay relationship.” Others aren’t sure it’s the end, but they said there’s no doubt he will be hurt.

Iran cuts oil exports to Britain, France By Ali Akbar Dareini Associated Press

TEHRAN, IRAN — Iran has halted oil shipments to Britain and France, the Oil Ministry said Sunday, in an apparent pre-emptive blow against the European Union after the bloc imposed sanctions on Iran’s crucial fuel exports. The EU imposed tough sanctions against Iran last month, which included a freeze of the country’s central bank assets and an oil embargo set to begin in July. Iran’s Oil Minister Rostam Qassemi had warned earlier this month that Tehran could cut off oil exports to “hostile” European nations. The 27-nation EU accounts for about 18 percent of Iran’s oil exports. However, the Iranian action was not likely to have any significant direct impact on European supplies because both Britain and France had already moved last year to sharply curtail oil purchases from Tehran to less than 3 percent of their daily needs. The EU sanctions, along with other punitive measures imposed by the U.S., are part of Western efforts to derail Iran’s disputed nuclear program, which the West fears is aimed at developing atomic weapons. Iran denies the charges, and says its program is for peaceful purposes. The spokesman for Iran’s Oil Ministry, Ali Reza Nikzad-Rahbar, said on the

ministry’s website Sunday that “crude oil exports to British and French companies have been halted.” “We have our own customers and have no problem to sell and export our crude oil to new customers,” he said. Britain’s Foreign Office declined comment, and there was no immediate response from French officials. The semiofficial Mehr news agency said exports were suspended to the two countries Sunday. It also said the National Iranian Oil Company has sent letters to some European refineries with an ultimatum to either sign long-term contracts of two to five years or be cut off. Mehr did not specify which countries were sent the ultimatum, but Spain, Italy and Greece are among Europe’s biggest buyers of Iranian oil.

CHICAGO — A small but growing number of teens and even younger children who think they were born the wrong sex are getting support from parents and from doctors who give them sex-changing treatments, according to reports in the medical journal Pediatrics. It’s an issue that raises ethical questions, and some experts urge caution in treating children with puberty-blocking drugs and hormones. An 8-year-old secondgrader in Los Angeles is a typical patient. Born a girl, the child announced at 18

months, “I a boy” and has stuck with that belief. The family was shocked but now refers to the child as a boy and is watching for the first signs of puberty to begin treatment, his mother told The Associated Press. Pediatricians need to know these kids exist and deserve treatment, said Dr. Norman Spack, author of one of three reports published today and director of one of the nation’s first gender identity medical clinics, at Children’s Hospital Boston. “If you open the doors, these are the kids who come. They’re out there. They’re in your practices,” Spack said in an interview.

Emerging research suggests they may have brain differences more similar to the opposite sex. Spack said by some estimates, 1 in 10,000 children

Yosemite waterfall turns to ‘lava’ during period of time in February THE FIREFALL FROM GLACIER POINT is shown in Yosemite National Park in this undated photo provided by the Yosemite National Park Service during a window of time when nature photographers capture the sun and earth align to create a fleeting phenomenon.

By Tracie Cone Associated Press

YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK, CALIF. — A window of time just opened in Yosemite National Park when nature photographers wait, as if for an eclipse, until the moment when the sun and earth align to create a fleeting phenomenon. This marvel of celestial configuration happens in a flash at sunset in midFebruary — if the winter weather cooperates. On those days the setting sun illuminates one of the park’s lesser-known waterfalls so precisely that it resembles molten lava as it flows over the sheer granite face of the imposing El Capitan. Every year growing numbers of photographers converge on the park, their necks craned toward the ephemeral Horsetail Fall, hoping the sky will be clear so they can duplicate the spectacle first recorded in color in 1973 by the late renowned outdoors photographer Galen Rowell. “Horsetail is so uniquely situated that I don’t know of any other waterfall on earth that gets that kind of light,” said Michael Frye, who wrote the book “The Photographer’s Guide to Yosemite.” “How many are perched on a high open cliff?

are in an alcove or canyon and won’t get the sun setting behind it. Yosemite’s special geography makes this fall distinctive,” he said. Four decades ago, photographers had only to point and shoot to capture another famous Yosemite firefall — a man-made cascade of embers pushed from a bonfire on summer nights from Glacier Point. But photographing Horsetail is a lesson in astronomy, physics and geometry as hopefuls consider the azimuth degrees and minutes of the earth’s orbit relative to the sun to determine the optimal day to experience it. They are

BRIEFLY 1st phase of ship’s fuel removal done ROME — The first phase of fuel removal from the capsized cruise ship Costa Concordia has been completed off Italy’s coast. Italy’s civil protection agency, which is monitoring the operation, said all fuel had been removed by Sunday evening from the tanks in the front part of the ship. Those tanks held roughly two-thirds of the fuel. The Concordia had around 500,000 gallons of fuel when it struck a reef near the Tuscan island of Giglio Jan. 13 and capsized. Fuel removal from less accessible tanks in the rear of the ship will follow, but choppy seas predicted for today could delay the start. Divers searching the wreck hope to find bodies of the 15 people missing. Seventeen bodies were found over the last few weeks.

It materializes in varying degrees of intensity for the same two weeks every year. “If you hit it at just the right time, it turns this amazing color of gold or red-orange,” said Frye, a photo instructor with the Ansel Adams Gallery in the park. Adams photographed the fall, but his iconic black and white images do not capture its fiery quality, and it’s unclear whether he ever noted it.

have the condition. Offering sex-changing treatment to kids younger than 18 raises ethical concerns, and their parents’ motives need to be closely examined, said Dr. Margaret Moon, a member of the American Academy of Pediatrics’ bioethics committee. She was not involved in any of the reports. Some kids may get a psychiatric diagnosis when they are just hugely uncomfortable with narrowly defined gender roles; or some may be gay and are coerced into treatment by parents more comfortable with a sex change than having a homosexual child, said

Moon, who teaches at the Johns Hopkins Berman Institute of Bioethics. It’s harmful “to have an irreversible treatment too early,” Moon said. Doctors who provide the treatment say withholding it would be more harmful. These children sometimes resort to self-mutilation to try to change their anatomy; the other two journal reports note that some face verbal and physical abuse and are prone to stress, depression and suicide attempts. Spack said those problems typically disappear in kids who’ve had treatment and are allowed to live as the opposite sex.

MOSCOW — Hundreds of cars circled central Moscow during an opposition demonstration on Sunday to demand that Prime Minister Vladimir Putin allow free elections in Russia. Putin As they traveled along the wide Garden Ring, which makes a nearly 10-mile loop around the Kremlin, the cars flew the white ribbons and balloons that have become a symbol of the peaceful anti-Putin protest movement. One family held up their little white dog in an open, passenger’s side window. Sunday’s demonstration took place two weeks before the presidential election, which Putin is expected to win. Although none of his four challengers poses a serious threat, Putin does need to get a majority of the vote to avoid a runoff.

Official: 3 killed after Wash. avalanche SEATTLE — Authorities say an avalanche near a Washington state ski resort swept four skiers 1,500 feet down a mountain, killing three of them. King County Sheriff’s Sgt. Katie Larson says the three men killed Sunday were all expert skiers. The slide happened at Stevens Pass in the Cascade Mountains, about 80 miles northeast of Seattle. Larson says the men were among three groups of people skiing out-ofbounds at the Stevens Pass ski area. The other skiers managed to dig the three men out and performed CPR, to no avail. All of skiers were well-equipped and experienced. The fourth person who was swept down the mountain, a woman, wasn’t seriously injured. Larson says the woman had an avalanche safety device, but she had no further details.

The Comedy Central show last week substituted repeats for scheduled shows on Wednesday and Thursday. At the time, the network said only that the cancellations were because of “unforeseen circumstances.” Colbert is expected to address his absence today. His 91-year-old mother, Lorna Colbert, is ill. Earlier on Twitter, Colbert thanked those who had offered “thoughts and prayers.”

Iowa caucus woes raise anxiety

EDITORIALS

Sidewalk stand The city’s sidewalk ordinance is a weak tool to combat panhandling in downtown Lawrence.

L

awrence City Hall leaders are heading off to court to try to prove the constitutionality of a city ordinance that regulates the manner in which people can walk, lie, stand or sit on a public sidewalk. It is a lawsuit the city may win, but city leaders should recognize it will not produce a victory in their efforts to control panhandling in downtown Lawrence. City commissioners approved this sidewalk ordinance, which makes it illegal to obstruct traffic on a sidewalk, in 2005. It was approved largely as a way to give the city more leverage over panhandlers who had created significant concerns among downtown merchants and visitors. Last week, a municipal court judge ruled the ordinance unconstitutional after it was challenged by Robert Gilmore, who goes by the name Simon. He isn’t really a panhandler, but he frequently sits on city sidewalks with socks on his hands. His family has said he suffers from mental illness. The city is entitled to appeal the ruling to Douglas County District Court, and city attorneys have said they’ll do that. If the city believes the constitution is on its side, there is no harm in appealing the ruling. In the grand scheme of things, however, this sidewalk ordinance isn’t much of a weapon in the panhandling battle. It may occasionally come in handy, but it would be naive to think it will have much impact on the city’s ability to reduce panhandling. City leaders have said as much over the years. There seems to be two major actions the city can take to make panhandling less of an issue in downtown. One is to increase police foot patrols in the area. Many panhandlers simply don’t like the police and likely don’t want to share space with them. A greater police presence will make it more likely the police can respond in a timely manner when a panhandler begins acting aggressively or being otherwise inappropriate. A greater police presence will require more city money, but maintaining our downtown is important. The second action is more complicated but ultimately may be more effective. The city must work to educate residents that every time they give to a panhandler, they are encouraging more panhandling. The city is in a position to create and manage an education campaign about the negative consequences of supporting panhandlers. Such an effort may require some signs, some advertising and other forms of public outreach. If panhandling is no longer profitable, it slowly will fade away. Ultimately, victory in the panhandling battle will come when kindhearted visitors to downtown Lawrence understand that a quarter here or a dollar there doesn’t do much to help an individual in need. There are many social service agencies, churches or other organizations that can put that money to much better use in helping the poor, homeless and mentally ill. The city should spend twice as much time spreading that message as it does trying to create and defend little-used laws.

DES MOINES, IOWA — Iowa seems like scorched earth today, and not only because there has been an unusual drought of snow this winter. The caucuses are over; the candidates are gone. But a sense of anxiety, even embarrassment, lingers. Part of the extensive unease here comes from the bungled election count. Iowans and people across the country went to bed that Tuesday night last month thinking that former Gov. Mitt Romney of Massachusetts had prevailed, winning a vital political contest that had eluded him four years earlier. Then it emerged that the actual winner was former Sen. Rick Santorum

of Pennsylvania, whose great strength so far has been in states contiguous to this one. Part of the anxiety comes from the shrillness of the campaign rhetoric, which was discordant in this state of unusually high literacy and unusually good manners. The combative language that began here has continued, maybe even grown more coarse, as the contest has moved east, then south and then west. Party leaders across the nation worry that the sticks and stones of winter could end up hurting the Republicans in autumn.

GOP debate out of control And part of it is the sense of helplessness some Republicans feel as the debate veers out of control. The party seems to lack ballast, if not balance; one of the principal challengers seems more set on personal revenge and personal redemption than to have the party prevail in November; and the front-runner’s campaign seems rooted more in its sense of political inevitability than in its ideological irresistibility. Indeed, 70 percent of those who voted for Romney in the Nevada caucuses said their top priority was his electability. And so, if the country — with a president with vulnerable poll ratings and an

The political parade Beyond providing early political tests in unusually homogeneous settings, Iowa and New Hampshire share many qualities. They both are jealous of their positions at the front of the political parade and exceedingly vigilant about preserving their prerogatives. Iowans, both Republicans and Democrats, are worried that the fumbled January vote count, the lengthy recount, tardy announcement of the

new results and the tawdry nature of the campaign could endanger the pre-eminent role the caucuses have played for more than a third of a century. Any re-evaluation of the place of Iowa inevitably would raise the question of the pre-eminence of New Hampshire. Nobody is ready to touch that issue right now — but almost everybody, including candidates past and present, has been critical of the incivility of the Republican race thus far. “This race has degenerated into an onslaught of negative and personal attacks not worthy of the American people and not worthy of this critical time in our nation’s history. This is the most important election of our lifetime,” former Gov. Jon Huntsman of Utah said in his endorsement of Romney just before the South Carolina primary. “The current toxic forum of our political discourse does not help our cause.” While a candidate, however, Huntsman also used strong negative characterizations of his opponents. Nationally, Republicans have been unusually forthright about the deficiencies of their nominating process, shining a light on the great vulnerability of the American political system: how we choose the finalists in presidential elections. The Democrats bow to no party in their ability to tinker with, and then comprehensively overhaul their nomination process, almost always making it more inscrutable, more unresponsive to the times and more unlikely to produce a plausible president at the end. Of course, in other political years, the primaries were fewer and later. In 1960, the Dem-

opposition party with no rudder or gyroscope — seems to have a case of political influenza, the seasonal flu seems particularly virulent here. “Apparently the confusion that occurred with the caucus count happens all the time and it doesn’t matter because the caucus results aren’t close,” says Barbara Trish, a Grinnell College political scientist. “But this year it was close, and it mattered. We know that this, after all, is a party event, not an election, and there aren’t the kind of formalized proceedings you see when a state runs a primary, but it still was embarrassing. At the same time, some of the campaigning turned people off. Activists weren’t impressed with the field and were alienated by the fighting and the language.” Sociologists might describe The Winter’s Tale here in Iowa and the GOP conundrum across the country as anomie — a social instability or personal unrest growing out of a breakdown of standards or the absence of purpose. It is particularly pervasive here, where Matt Strawn, the Republican Party leader, has stepped down amid criticism, particularly strong among conservatives, that the party was reluctant, and then late, to announce Santorum’s triumph.

ocratic calendar didn’t start until March 8 and included primaries in only 15 states and the District of Columbia. As late as 1976, the Republicans held fewer than 30 primaries, beginning in New Hampshire on Feb 24. The nomination processes used in 1960, when Sen. John F. Kennedy and Sen. Hubert H. Humphrey engaged in a spirited Democratic fight, and in 1976, when President Gerald R. Ford and Gov. Ronald Reagan battled for the Republican nomination, didn’t choke off what we now know were important debates about the parties and their futures.

Back rooms have appeal Today’s parties shy away from the smoked-filled rooms — like the one at the Blackstone Hotel in Chicago where GOP leaders selected Warren G. Harding as their nominee — but party leaders privately pine for the days when a few professionals could bring order to the chaos of a modern nomination process. You can hear some Republicans yearning for those days, though perhaps not for Harding, at a time when their party members are marching through their political calendar with the nagging notion that their most gifted field generals are on the sidelines — in Indianapolis, Trenton and perhaps even in the antechambers of the Senate in Washington. Then again, that is the nature of political contests. Even in years when incumbents are campaigning for a second term, we hold elections to satisfy our desires for what we don’t have and think we want. Then more elections follow. — David M.

KANSAS FOOTBALL

Ianello relishes return to roots

KANSAS MEN’S BASKETBALL

Sizing up swats

By Matt Tait mtait@ljworld.com

In coming to coach football at Kansas University, Rob Ianello is returning to what he’s used to and doing it with a different eye. From 1987 through 2009, Ianello, 46, served as an assistant coach at five schools, including Notre Dame from 2005-09, when he worked under current KU coach Charlie Weis in South Bend, Ind. During his 20-plus years as an assistant, Ianello was an assistant recruiting coordinator at Alabama, a recruiting coordinator and tightends coach at Wisconsin and a wide-receivers coach and recruiting coordinator at Arizona and Notre Dame. He has inherited similar roles at KU, serving as Weis’ recruiting coordinator and wide-receivers coach, but he will approach them with a new mind-set — the return to his roots comes on the heels of a two-year run as the head coach at AkNick Krug/Journal-World Photos ron.

Edwards claims pole for Daytona 500 DAYTONA BEACH, FLA. (AP) — Carl Edwards fell bitterly short in last season’s bid to win the NASCAR championship. He’s starting 2012 out front. Edwards, who lost the championship last season on a tiebreaker to Tony Stewart, won the pole for the season-opening Daytona 500, beating teammate Greg Biffle for the top starting spot during a windy Sunday

qualifying session at Daytona International Speedway. Edwards turned a lap at 194.738 mph — the fastest polewinning speed since Jeff Gordon’s lap of 195.067 mph in 1999. Biffle was second at 194.087 to give Ford and Roush Fenway Racing a sweep of the front row. “It’s so neat to come down here and to be so fast and to really have fun qualifying here,�

Edwards said. “These are the best race cars we’ve ever had at Daytona. Coming down here I didn’t even consider the pole, so this is huge.� Biffle was not as thrilled. “I’m a little disappointed,� Biffle said. “I hate the wind. I guess if you’re out sailing, it’s good. It was singing down the back, but coming down the front I just got a big gust of wind com-

ing off of (turn) four ... I knew I didn’t have it.� Edwards and Biffle were the only two drivers to lock down their starting positions in Daytona’s unique qualifying format. The rest of the starting order for Sunday’s race is set through Thursday’s twin 150-mile qualifying races. But only four starting spots are up for grabs.

Frozen by disease, Ali still Greatest

Haas holes 45-foot putt in playoff, wins Northern

By Tim Dahlberg Associated Press Sports Columnist

LAS VEGAS — They gathered in the bowels of the arena where most of the great fights of the last two decades have taken place, old men now all sharing one shining moment from years gone by. They had come to honor The Greatest, though whether Muhammad Ali remembered who they were or knew what it was all about was a matter of speculation that on this night would go unanswered. Some, like Chuck Wepner, couldn’t stop talking about the night they won their own personal lottery — a spot across the ring from Ali. Nothing new there, since the Bayonne Bleeder has been talking about it to anyone else who will listen almost every day since. Others, like Leon Spinks, weren’t able to talk much at all. “Leon Spinks is here and he needs help,� Wepner said. “There are a lot of fighters who need help.� This was a night supposed to bring that help, both to fighters like Spinks and those fighting today. Millions would be raised in Ali’s name for the Cleveland Clinic’s new Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health in downtown Las Vegas, where researchers are already busy trying to unlock the puzzles of damage to the human brain. A seat for dinner and the show at the MGM Grand hotel started at $1,500. UFC owner Lorenzo Fertitta spent $1.1 million in an auction for the gloves Ali used against Floyd Patterson in 1965 in the first heavyweight title fight in a city that would become synonymous with boxing. President Barack Obama wished Ali well in a video greeting, and Stevie Wonder was among those on hand to sing birthday wishes to the former heavyweight champion, who turned 70 last month. At the center of it all was an elderly man, mute and his face seemingly frozen as he sat at a table with his wife, Lonnie, and several other family members. Whether boxing caused Ali’s Parkinson’s is the subject of debate, but it was clear on this night the disease he has fought for three decades has taken a terrible toll on him. He was once a magnificent man with a sculptured body and a mouth that wouldn’t stay shut. He’s still magnificent in the way that his very presence envelopes and engulfs an arena like it did Saturday night, hushing high-rollers and the elite of this gambling town in a way no other man could — and all without saying a word. They used to trot Joe Louis out like this in his final years, too, a heavyweight great and an American hero reduced to drooling in his wheelchair at ringside. With Ali, though, it seems different in a way if only because you get the feeling that the man who was the ultimate people person still enjoys being around people. “I’m not sad about him, just proud to know him,� George Foreman said. “When people ask me if he’s the greatest boxer ever, it’s an insult. He was the greatest everything, just a great man.�

LOS ANGELES — Bill Haas knows anything is possible from even the most dire positions. Remember, this is the guy only five months ago saved par with his ball partially submerged in a lake and won the FedEx Cup. Not even Haas could have imagined such a stunning conclusion Sunday at Riviera. In thick rough behind the 10th green, the second hole of a three-man playoff with Phil Mickelson and Keegan Bradley, Haas smartly played away from the flag with hopes of making par and going on to the next hole. He wound up holing a 45-foot birdie putt across the green to win the Northern Trust Open. “A part of me was saying, ‘I’ve done this once, let’s do it again,’� Haas said. “Another part of me was saying, ‘Don’t screw this up.’� Mickelson and Bradley worked their own heroics just to get into the playoff. Haas, who closed with a 2-under 69, was on the practice range at 7-under 277 as he warmed up for a playoff only he thought might happen. He was trying to convince himself that Mickelson or Bradley — maybe both — would make birdie on the 18th hole, even though it had yielded only six birdies all day. With tournament executive director Jerry West — “Mr. Clutch� from his days with the Los Angeles Lakers — looking on, Mickelson rammed in a birdie putt from just outside 25 feet, pointing his putter and slamming his fist as the gallery packed into the hill below the stately clubhouse let out a cheer that could be heard down Sunset Boulevard. Mickelson bumped fists with Bradley and told his protege, “Join me.� That he did. Bradley’s birdie putt from just outside 12 feet took one last, slow turn at the cup and disappeared, setting off another enormous cheer. No one had to tell Haas what was happening. “You heard the cheers,� he said. They started the playoff on the 18th, and Bradley had the best look at birdie with a 15-footer from just off the back of the green that touched the right side of the cup. It was decided on the 312-yard 10th hole, regarded as the best short par 4 in America, certainly among the most interesting holes in all of golf. It can be reached with a drive, but it’s all about position. Haas went long into thick rough, with enough of the back bunker in his way that he smartly played out to the right and left himself a long birdie putt that at least would assure him par. Mickelson and Bradley each came up short, a horrible angle. Mickelson’s flop shot landed near the hole and rolled into the back bunker. Bradley was in the bunker, and did well to blast out to 15 feet, just through the green. Haas ended the suspense with his putt. Former Kansas University golfer Gary Woodland had his worst round of the tournament Sunday, a 77, and finished at 295. Only five other golfers put up bigger numbers, but he still earned $13,200.

Perry snares Champions title NAPLES, FLA. — Kenny Perry shot a 2-under 70 Sunday for his second Champions Tour title, cruising to a five-shot victory in the ACE Group Classic. Perry birdied three of his first eight holes, and no one ever came closer than four shots after that. Perry totaled 24 birdies — two short of the tour record for a 54-hole event — and tied Allen Doyle (1999) for the largest margin of victory in the 25-year-old tournament. Last year’s Champions Tour rookie of the year set the tour’s 36-hole scoring record in relation to par at 18 under following a 62 in Saturday’s second round.

BILL HAAS CELEBRATES winning the Northern Trust Open on the second playoff hole on Sunday at Riviera Country Club in Los Angeles. 17-season career in which the center fielder won three Gold Gloves. The 39-year-old outfielder signed a minorleague contract with Washington in December and was expected to have a good shot to make the roster with the Nationals unsettled at center field. The 2001 All-Star played for eight franchises, hitting .249 with 278 homers and 968 RBIs. Last year Cameron hit .203 in 78 games for Boston and Florida.

Burnett headed to Pittsburgh NEW YORK — A.J. Burnett’s rocky tenure in pinstripes is over. The Yankees and Pirates completed a trade Sunday that sends the much-maligned pitcher to Pittsburgh for a pair of minor-leaguers. New York is also giving the Pirates nearly $20 million to cover most of Burnett’s hefty salary in a deal that clears the way for the Yankees to sign Raul Ibanez. The teams agreed to the trade Friday, but it was subject to Burnett passing a physical, which he did Sunday at Pirates camp as pitchers and catchers held their first workout of spring training in Bradenton, Fla. Commissioner Bud Selig also had to approve the deal because of the money involved. Burnett goes from a perennial World Series favorite to a club coming off its 19th consecutive losing season, a record for the four major pro sports in North America. The Yankees get 25-year-old right-hander Diego Moreno and 20-year-old outfielder Exicardo Cayones, both low-level prospects. Pittsburgh will pay $13 million of the $33 million salary due Burnett for 2012 and 2013, a person familiar with the negotiations said Friday, speaking on condition of anonymity because no announcement had been made at that time.

ESPN fires headline writer

BRISTOL, CONN. — ESPN fired an employee responsible for an offensive headline about Knicks sensation Jeremy Lin. The headline Friday on ESPN’s mobile website was used for a story about a New York loss in which Lin had nine turnovers. The headline was an idiom that contains a word that also can be used as a slur against Chinese. “I don’t think it was on purpose or whatever, but (at) the same time they have apologized. And so from my end I don’t care anymore,� Lin said after leading the Knicks to a 104-97 win over Dallas on Sunday. “Have to learn to forgive, and I don’t even think that was intentional.

ROYALS

K.C. pitchers hope for rebound year SURPRISE, ARIZ. (AP) — Dayton Moore knew he’d need to improve the Kansas City pitching staff if the Royals were to have any chance of fulfilling some lofty expectations this season. The general manager’s first significant move came in November, when he dealt outfielder Melky Cabrera to the San Francisco Giants for Jonathan Sanchez, gambling a lefthander oozing with talent had put a season marred by nagging injuries behind him. Moore then went out an acquired veteran reliever Jonathan Broxton to bridge the gap to closer Joakim Soria, who will be trying to rebound from his own roller-coaster of a year. Perhaps the most significant move Kansas City made, though, had nothing to do with players. The Royals decided to hire Dave Eiland to replace pitching coach Bob McClure, and it will be the longtime Yankees coach’s responsibility to begin revamping the Kansas City staff when pitchers and catchers report to the team’s spring training complex today in Surprise, Ariz. “He is an extremely talented pitching coach and a proven winner,” Moore said upon Eiland’s hiring. “Our entire baseball operations staff has strong convictions about Dave’s ability to make a positive difference with our pitching staff.” The only regular starter last season with a winning

KANSAS CITY ROYALS PITCHER BRUCE CHEN THROWS during an unofficial baseball spring training workout Sunday in Surprise, Ariz. record was Bruce Chen, who went 12-8, and the rotation went a combined 45-65 with a 4.82 ERA. The unsightly numbers included this seemingly implausible stat: Royals starters logged a mere 621 strikeouts in 943 innings. So it’s no secret to Eiland that things will have to improve. “It has to,” he said this week. “It if doesn’t, it falls into my lap.” Even though youngsters such as Eric Hosmer and Mike Moustakas will garner the headlines during training camp, it’s the Royals’ pitchers who could decide whether a team that hasn’t made the postseason since winning

the 1985 World Series can finally compete for an AL Central crown. Chen is back after signing a free-agent deal in the offseason. He’s basically assured a job in the rotation along with Sanchez and former top draft pick Luke Hochevar, who finally showed signs of life after plodding through a rough start to his big league career. Hochevar was the opening day starter last season, and will likely get the assignment again when Kansas City opens April 6 against Albert Pujols and the Los Angeles Angels. Hochevar went 11-11 last season, the closest he’s had to a winning season.

“Now is the time for him to take it to the next level,” Eiland said. “I think he’s prepared to do that mentally and physically.” The 34-year-old Chen has led the staff in victories the past two seasons, which was enough to land him a $9 million, two-year deal in free agency. But he’s far from a sure thing — Chen went nearly four years without winning a big league game, and he’ll turn 35 in June. “Bruce was Bruce, and I mean that in a good way,” Eiland said after watching him throw during an optional mound session this week. “He’s a veteran, a pro. He has a plan.” Sanchez could become

the linchpin of Eiland’s entire rebuilding project. He flashed talent when he threw a no hitter for San Francisco in 2009, but he was limited to 19 starts and four wins because of injuries last season. He’s also a walk machine whose average of better than a strikeout per inning is tempered by the fact that he puts so many on base. “It’s exciting, you know?” Sanchez said of the change in scenery. “It’s exciting to make the playoffs, and that’s what we want, to be a young team that makes the playoffs.” The biggest question in camp will be who lands

with the head coach and I knew him and trusted him, it was too good to pass up,” Ianello said. With the spark reignited and the perfect opportunity to get back to coaching at his feet, Ianello started his research. He always had heard great things about living in Lawrence and knew a handful of people who had worked at Kansas throughout the years. One of them, former KU offensive coordinator Ed Warinner, just happened to be a good friend.

“I had a chance to talk to Eddie over the years, and I knew what they’d done out here,” Ianello said. “When I got involved with this opportunity, I called him and said, ‘Tell me about this, tell me about that.’” Although Warinner’s role in Lawrence was different than the one Ianello will have, Ianello seems to be following in Warinner’s footsteps in at least one major way — both came to Kansas as part of a coaching staff that faced a giant rebuilding process. Under former KU boss Mark Mangino, Warinner helped lead the Jayhawks to an Orange Bowl championship and some of the

most prolific offensive seasons in school history. Whether the same fate awaits Ianello remains to be seen, but the bounce has already returned to the longtime assistant coach’s step. “I love coaching,” Ianello said. “I love the interaction with the players. That’s the thing, as the head coach, that you don’t get as much. You don’t get into your (meeting) room with your players, and you don’t get the opportunity to kind of bond with them. So I’m really looking forward to getting back to that. That was always fun for me, and it’s gonna be fun for me again.”

BRIEFLY Jayhawk tennis moves to 5-0 Kansas University’s tennis team remained undefeated in dual competition on Sunday as KU took down Arkansas-Little Rock, 6-1, at the Jayhawk Tennis Center. Kansas’ 5-0 record is its best start to a season since 1992. The Jayhawks swept their doubles matches, including a 8-0 victory by Dylan Windom and Maria Belen Ludueña. The home team’s only loss of the day came in

singles competition. UALR’s Viktoriya Plyuta defeated KU’s Monica Pezzotti, 6-2, 6-4. The Jayhawks will compete next against Drake at 5 p.m. Saturday in Des Moines, Iowa.

confidence.” Robisch, 62, who lives in Springfield, Ill., is thrilled the Jayhawks are tied for first place in the league (with 12-2 Missouri) with four games to play. “Coming in, with the players they lost, everybody was a little uncertain of what would happen,” Robisch said. “They’ve really started to play well. Coach (Bill Self) does a good job getting them to improve as the season goes on. Withey is a big key. He has come on strong. Last year he didn’t get to play much. Thomas didn’t get to play much.

the final two rotation spots. Felipe Paulino and Danny Duffy are considered the front-runners, but they’ll have to out-perform Luis Mendoza, Aaron Crow, Mike Montgomery and a host of others. Paulino was 4-6 with a 4.26 ERA after joining the Royals rotation mid-season, while Duffy went 4-8 with a 5.64 ERA as a rookie. Both have shown flashes of brilliances, but both also had trouble pitching late into games, which in turn taxed the bullpen. Mendoza was a revelation in the minors, going 12-5 with Triple-A Omaha. He was 2-0 with a 1.23 ERA in two starts after a September call-up. Crow was the Royals’ lone All-Star selection as a rookie reliever, and although he seemed to regress in the second half last season, the former first-round pick will get a long look at the rotation. So will Montgomery, who spent all of last season in the minors. Eiland said he spent “many, many hours” watching video of Royals pitchers in the offseason. If he can figure out a way to coax the starters deep into games, it should take some of the load off a talented bullpen that seemed to wear down late in the season, and just maybe give Kansas City the support it needs to challenge for a division title. “I saw a lot of good, impressive arms,” Eiland said. “It’s about consistency, pitching to win and not pitching to survive.”

(Okla.) Memorial High, who attended Saturday’s game, has received scholarship offers from Memphis, Oklahoma and San Francisco, according to Rivals.com. He also has received interest from KU, Baylor, Oklahoma State, Iowa, Minnesota, Northwestern, Vanderbilt and others. “I really like the coaching staff, and it seems they get along well with the players,” Woodard told Rivals.com. “Coach Self was real honest with me and my family. He said that he likes me a lot and he likes my game. Coach Self thinks that I can be one of the next point guards that move in and run the team.” Woodard is currently ranked No. 122 in the Class of 2013. He scored 29 points versus Edmond Santa Fe High in a game Self attended earlier this season.

NBA All-Star directors want entertainment, not controversy By Jim Abbott The Orlando Sentinel

ORLANDO, FLA. — Whether it’s the NBA, the NFL or major-league baseball, big-name musical acts are as much a part of professional sporting events as beer vendors and jumbo video screens. And so are the headaches, ranging from wardrobe malfunctions to rude gestures to pleasing the audience. That’s why, “if you’re scheduling entertainment for a massive event with a very diverse audience, you’re obviously going to be a little careful about who you choose,” said Robert Thompson, a professor of pop culture at Syracuse University. And it was definitely on Charles Rosenzweig’s mind as he pulled together the musical lineup for this weekend’s NBA All-Star Game in Orlando. “In the back of everyone’s mind are some of these instances,” said Rosenzweig, the NBA’s

senior vice president for entertainment and player marketing, adding that the NBA’s own production team produces the All-Star Weekend musical segments to maintain control. “We discuss the creative approach with the artists; we discuss the lyrics; we discuss wardrobe - just like we do with any show that we’re doing. We’ve been fortunate that we haven’t had any incidents.” Finding the right entertainment, especially in an increasingly diverse music industry, isn’t as easy as it once was. “Booking any act that will get everybody excited is really hard to do,” Thompson said. “If you take 100 people randomly, of different ages and economic backgrounds, you might have a hard time coming up with more than a couple of names of recent musicians that everybody knows. Maybe Lady Gaga or Katy Perry, but it’s a relatively small list.” The NBA goes out of its way “to be current, to be

hip, to know that we have an audience that skews younger and to work with acts that have big hits at that moment,” Rosenzweig said. His lineup for All-Star weekend includes singer Mary J. Blige, Miami rapper Pitbull and will.i.am of the Black Eyed Peas. Rosenzweig said he’s more worried about a technical malfunction than a wardrobe one. The mother of all controversies happened during the 2004 Super Bowl halftime show, when Justin Timberlake grabbed Janet Jackson’s costume and exposed her breast for about half a second. It “was a massive nuisance to the television industry,” Thompson said. “It’s still an issue for the networks and leagues.” This year’s Super Bowl halftime show offered a reminder of that, when singer M.I.A. flashed her middle finger to the game’s record-setting 111.3 million TV viewers. Even the show’s headliner, Madonna, criticized the move.

Duke cruises; Indiana tumbles The Associated Press

No. 2 Syracuse 74, Rutgers 64 PISCATAWAY, N.J. — C.J. Fair scored a career-high 21 points, and Scoop Jardine added 17, including a dagger three-pointer with 1:11 to play, as Syracuse escaped another close one on Sunday. The Orange (27-1, 14-1) improved their lead in the Big East standings to 21⁄2 games over No. 12 Marquette and No. 23 Notre Dame. They won two of their last three games by three points or fewer and this one looked to be going the same way. The Scarlet Knights (1215, 4-10) beat two Top Ten teams this season at home — Florida and Connecticut — and they were right there with the Orange, who have won 12 straight games in the series. Gilvydas Biruta matched his career-high with 21 points for Rutgers.

No. 5 Duke 75, Boston College 50 BOSTON — Seth Curry scored 18 points and Duke didn’t need another late rally as it cruised past Boston College behind a smothering defense. The Blue Devils had erased a 20-point deficit in the final 111⁄2 minutes to beat North Carolina State 78-73 on Thursday night. Eight days earlier, they had come back from 10 points down with 21⁄2 minutes left to beat North Carolina 85-84. Duke (23-4, 10-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) pulled into a tie for the conference lead with North Carolina and Florida State.

Dear Annie: I have two grown children, both married with kids. My youngest, “Carrie,” has a 14-year-old daughter who has been seeing a boy for a year. The other day, we were visiting Carrie, and my granddaughter and her boyfriend got very cozy at the dining room table while we were eating dinner. They started kissing and making out in front of the entire family. Carrie didn’t say a word. I think this is terrible. Carrie is not the easiest person to approach about it, however. If I say anything to her, I doubt she’ll respond well. Any suggestions? — Grandmother in Boston Dear Boston: Carrie may have reasons for ignoring such inappropriate behavior. Perhaps this teenage granddaughter already has plenty of issues with her mother, and Carrie has decided to ignore as much as she can. If you spend time alone

with your granddaughter (and we recommend it), you can discuss these things directly and calmly with her. Otherwise, it would be a good idea to stay out of it. Dear Annie: My dentist performed a root canal on the wrong tooth. Because of his mistake, I had to go through two root canals and two crown preps. He didn’t charge me for the one he did in error, but I did get a bill for more than $2,000 for the other. I feel violated. Crowns do not last as long as natural teeth, so I’ve lost

PBS profiles Bill Clinton ‘‘American Experience” (8 p.m., PBS, check local listings; concludes 7 p.m. Tuesday) celebrates Presidents Day with a two-night profile of Bill Clinton. Recent history is always tricky. For many, it will seem hardly possible that the 1990s have receded into “history” already. ‘‘American Experience” profiles tend toward psycho-biography, and this one has a field day with Clinton’s contradictory personality, his often brilliant public performance and his sloppy private life. This “Clinton” is so focused on the scandals of the era that viewers may be forgiven for thinking it may have been lying in a vault since 2000. It’s a media time warp. Speaking of media, the program never discusses the new and unique challenges of the 24-hour cable news media or the hostile and extremist talk-radio media that accompanied Clinton’s presidency. The Fox News Channel, created specifically to torment the president and his party, is never mentioned. Neither is Rush Limbaugh. Despite enduring brutal attacks, impeachment and hitherto unimagined private scrutiny and public humiliation, Clinton left office more popular and admired than ever. All but ignoring Clinton’s foes, this “Experience” overlooks the idea that they may have been key to Clinton’s survival and enduring popularity. There’s an old saying in politics, dating to the Cleveland administration and popular during FDR’s era: “We love you for the enemies you have made.” It goes a long way toward explaining people’s feelings about Bill Clinton.

a perfectly good piece of my anatomy. The dentist now says I eventually would have needed a root canal there anyway, but that’s not true. I have Xrays from another dentist that show nothing wrong with that tooth. I know I could sue him for malpractice, but I don’t want the stress of going to court. And the dentist told me if I sue and don’t prove my case, he would countersue with a defamation claim. Should I report him to the dental board? Should I inform my family, since I have recommended this dentist in the past? — A Lakes Region Dear Region: Telling your family is your choice. Mistakes can happen in any profession. However, this dentist should have apologized profusely instead of becoming defensive and threatening you with a countersuit. We recommend you call your state dental society

JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS

For Monday, Feb. 20: This year you will tend to walk to your own beat. Often you will feel left out, as others go down their own paths. Your self-confidence grows as a result of success. Others find you to be most appealing and gentle, yet also a bit odd. If you are single, you need to be more open to someone who will appreciate you. Be careful that this person is not emotionally unavailable. If you are attached, plan a special vacation together. 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 energy carries a project across the finish line. You might wonder what to do next. Follow your natural inclinations, and you will land just fine. Tonight: Zero in on what you want.

Dear Annie: “Broken” said his ex-girlfriend dropped by, they had a couple of beers, and because he had taken a sleep aid earlier, he fell asleep and woke up having sex with her. You said he apparently didn’t make a conscious decision to cheat on his current girlfriend. I wish you had pointed out that what happened to him was rape. Any person who wakes up in that situation is a victim, regardless of gender. — Concerned Citizen Dear Concerned: If the ex had given him the sleeping pill, we would agree. But she was unaware of it.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)  Allow yourself time alone to process an issue. You could try another approach or speak to a respected confidant. Tonight: Do for you.

AYNSLEY ANDERSON, A REGISTERED NURSE with Lawrence Memorial Hospital, goes over safety precautions to prevent falling during a demonstration on Feb. 9 at Meadowlark Estates. Logan says. “Sometimes they just grab an assistive device like a cane or a walker and are like, ‘Well, this is going to keep me safe.’ It’s kind of like a security blanket.” For a person who has no self-apparent balance issues as of yet but has concerns about preventing problems later, Samuelson suggests adding balance training to their fitness regimen. Yoga, stability ball work, planks, BOSU Trainer exercises or anything in which you must use one leg or arm at a time could help improve your balance on the whole, she says. “If you’re at the gym, doing single arm or single leg exercises,” Samuelson says. “If you’re in good shape and doing a plank, put one arm up or leg up or alternate arms and legs — anything with any sort of imbalance would be beneficial in becoming stronger with balance.” If you’re not fit, she says, simple exercises like brushing your teeth while balancing on one foot or trying to get out of a chair on one leg could be an easy way to start improvements. She also says focusing on core strength — which can improve your stability — has a side effect of helping to improve balance.

3. Pick up one foot, so that you’re standing on a single leg with your hands on the sink. 4. Shut your eyes. 5. Carefully lift your hands off the sink, leaving them hovering close to the lip just in case you need to grab on. 6. See how long you can stand there before putting your leg down or grabbing the lip. There is no specific “goal” for time — it should be apparent to you if your balance could use improvement or professional help.

EVEN “BIG KIDS” enjoy the marionettes at the Puppetry Arts Institute in Independence, Mo. A trip just across the state line can appeal to multiple generations.

ntergenerational travel is a growing trend, and grandparents in Lawrence don’t have to stray too far from home to take the grandkids on a memorable adventure. Independence, Mo. — just minutes east of the Kansas City International Airport — offers a wealth of interesting kid-friendly and senior-friendly sites and attractions. There’s so much to see and do in Independence that it’s hard to know where to start, but my favorite place in town is the Puppetry Arts Institute. There’s a scene in Walt Disney’s animated film, “Pinocchio,” that takes nearly every child’s breath away when they view it for the first time. The Blue Fairy has just granted Pinocchio his dearest wish, to become a real boy, and little Pinocchio comes alive. The fact that a little “wooden head” could suddenly feel life in his limbs and start prancing around is a concept that must occur to every child — and quite a few adults — when they first enter the amazing Hazelle Rollins Puppet Museum at the Puppetry Arts Institute. At first glance, there are puppets everywhere — more than 150 of them: mermaids, nuns, kings, clowns, parrots, and even a perfect replica of Harry Truman! There are marionettes, hand puppets, shadow puppets, rod puppets, finger puppets and European paper puppets (with their own toy theaters). There are even puppets in the Gift Shop that consist solely of “googly” eyeballs for children to wear on their fingers! Some of the puppets’ faces are so lifelike that you’d expect them to hop off the shelves or unstring themselves

NANCY PISTORIUS

DAYTRIPPER from the walls and start dancing. Visitors must surely wonder what happens when the last lights go off and the museum is closed for the evening. Do the puppets come out to play? A wide assortment of hand puppet heads lies invitingly on a table for visitors to select and paint. Don’t be shy about coming in to make a puppet if you’re over 3 feet high, even if you don’t have a child in tow. The museum is not just for kids, but it helps if you’re a kid at heart. And, through the end of July, it’s Howdy Doody Time! Baby boomers may find themselves swooning over the special Howdy Doody collection, enhanced by tapes from the TV show. What a thrill to be able to share the magic of Howdy Doody with your grandchildren! One of the Howdy Doody puppeteers is now on staff at the Institute and can answer questions about Buffalo Bob, Clarabelle the Clown and even Howdy.


MON D AY, FEBR UAR Y 20, 2012

The ghost of the inimitable Harry Truman looms large over the entire town, and both you and your grandkids will enjoy touring the Harry S. Truman Library and Museum. Seniors will get nostalgic over the section of the museum devoted to exploring the postwar economic boom of the 1950s, when America’s standard of living soared, suburbia was born, and new appliances and other consumer goods entered the culture. It’s like a step back into the past — your past. A vintage television set in this area displays a continuous video loop of television shows and commercials from the early 1950s. Your grandkids may have heard you talk about “the good old days” when you were growing up, but now they can see for themselves some of the television programs that you watched. A vintage refrigerator in the same room of the museum is stuffed with food that you might remember grabbing as a kid from your parents’ fridge, and the walls are papered with old Life magazine covers from the same era. Spend a little time talking with your grandkids about your own personal experiences during that time period, and they’ll learn more than they’d ever retain from a history textbook.

A new major exhibit at the museum, “The Life and Times of Harry S. Truman,” offers plenty of hands-on activities for younger kids. Your grandchildren can make (and keep) campaign buttons, dress up like Harry or Bess in period clothes, or play “postmaster” and deliver letters. For a change of pace after the museum, head to Independence Square, which offers plenty of intergenerational activities, like antique shopping (the new Lily Wolfgang is a “mishmash boutique”), bowling (the Diamond Bowl features neon pins and wall art of Day-Glo images of past Presidents demonstrating their bowling techniques) — and, of course, eating! Your “cool quotient” will rise in your grandkids’ eyes when you treat them to one of the specialty pizzas at Square Pizza, where the pizzas are made “one square at a time.” Clinton’s Soda Fountain, where young Harry got his first job, still serves up scrumptious ice cream sodas and handdipped shakes. Clinton’s also offers classic soda phosphates with flavored syrups. You might even want to try “Harry’s Favorite” — a butterscotch sundae with chocolate ice cream. — Nancy Pistorius can be reached at go@ljworld.com.

Diane Keaton or Helen Mirren showcase that it’s not about looking young; it’s about looking good. ALI EDWARDS

Style icons provide inspiration

I

t’s almost cliché at this point to talk about how difficult it is for a mature woman to find fashionable clothing. When my mother, who’s in her late 50s, and I go shopping, she looks for blouses and nearly always walks out of the store empty-handed. For women in their 60s, 70s, 80s and beyond, shopping trips can become dreaded endeavors and instead, these seasoned women hunt through their closets and end up grabbing the same sweater they wore to their daughter’s junior high bake sale. Part of the problem in mature women’s fashion is to blame on the stores that carry ill-fitting, age-inappropriate clothing. But on the consumer’s end, be sure not to fall into the trap of trying to look like a younger version of yourself. The most elegant and young-looking woman in Hollywood isn’t Joan Rivers, who is, at this point, more plastic than flesh. No, it’s the woman who has embraced her age and ushered it in with grace. It’s women like Diane Keaton or Helen Mirren, both 66. These ladies showcase that it’s not about looking young; it’s about looking good. For this special edition of Go!, we’ll look at Keaton and Mirren’s styles to determine how to dress as a senior woman. Helen Mirren

TAILORING/FIT

NEUTRALS I don’t think I’ve ever seen Diane Keaton in an actual color. She’s always looking absolutely amazing in either in a stunning black dress or a white button up shirt. Mirren, too, is often found in champagnes and muted silvers. Neutral colors are perfect for mature women, because they proclaim a certain understated confidence, a undeniable elegance that younger women just can’t pull off. The best thing a woman can wear is a crisp, white button-up shirt. FUNKY GLASSES Eclectic eyeglasses juxtaposed against an elegant ensemble make for a sophisticated yet youthful look. Keaton switches between round, silver wireframed glasses and thick, square plasticframed glasses. This simple change in accessories can make a big impact in your appearance. If you don’t know already, Wink, 806 Mass., is Lawrence’s funky eyeglass haven.

I’ve stressed this point in almost every column I’ve written about women who are older than 20. For mature women, fit is the most important aspect to consider when purchasing clothes. You’ll save money and stretch your wardrobe by investing in a tailor to fix clothes that don’t quite fit. SENSIBLE HAIRCUT Gone are the days of throwing your mane back in a messy bun or letting it fall down over your shoulders. However, it’s still possible to have a fun and beautiful haircut. Hairstyles for women over 60 should follow these three simple rules:

If your hair is thin, cut it to your shoulders or above.

Brighten it to a color lighter than it was in your 20s and 30s.

Don’t load it down with hairspray. The less stiff, the better.

Is that a TV in your pocket?

River City Jules

“I

never thought chuck wagon dinners sounded good before,” my husband confessed at the dinner

table. We had been talking about last summer’s voyage to Wyoming, a trip that included a horse-drawn wagon ride to a barbecue dinner and cowboy sing-a-long. What’s not to love? “It was that old dog food commercial,” he explained as 10 eyeballs shot his way. “You know, the one with the covered wagon that came out of the television and ran around the dog’s living room?” Our kids were intrigued. How, with the dark-age technology of the 1970s, could non-cable television have produced a commercial that landed a chuck wagon in a living room, they wondered? My husband pulled out his iPhone and within moments had located the commercial on YouTube. Unfortunately the clip was slow to load, taking nearly 20 seconds, just long enough for the following conversation to take place. “Why is this taking so long?” he asked, I am assuming, Steve Jobs. The fact that we were using 4G (I have no clue what that is) technology at our dinner table to watch a commercial from 35 years ago that brings pre-Civil War era covered wagons to life was too much for me to keep quiet. “Do you understand you just pulled a television,” I started, “a t-e-l-e-v-i-s-i-o-n,” I clarified, “out of your pocket?” He looked up as YouTube continued to buffer. “Our parents didn’t have televisions in their homes until well after starting grade school, but our kids are about to watch one you just pulled out of your pocket.” The kids looked at me, horrified at the thought

JULIE DUNLAP

that Mimi, Papa, Grammy and Grandpa lived so long without access to SpongeBob. At this point the commercial was ready for someone to tap “play,” but I was on a roll with an attentive audience, something that rarely happens in our home. I should have used this chance to ask for more help in the laundry room, but technology was on my mind. “For most of the last three decades, if we wanted to watch a woman reconstitute golden nuggets and tender red chunks of meat for her dog we would have had to sit in front of the television and wait for it to come on.” (All it took was warm water and the dog was eating a meal fit for a cowboy. The ’70s were awesome.) “But now you can reach into your pocket and summon a commercial I haven’t seen since Lou Ferrigno last painted his pecs green.” Eight young eyebrows contorted in confusion. “He played the Incredible Hulk,” I explained to their satisfaction before pointing out to my husband that the high-def television he held in the palm of his hand was ready for viewing. Without a word he tapped the screen, and within nanoseconds the old chuck wagon was once again rolling through the dog’s house and into the kitchen cabinet. — Julie Dunlap can be reached at go@ljworld.com.

How to hang objects on plaster walls

H

anging anything onto a plaster wall is a bit of a challenge. Depth finders help locate studs behind the plaster, but drilling through plaster and lath into a stud is often problematic. There are a few good options to consider when trying to hang something on a plaster wall. Option 1: In days of yore, builders often installed wooden picture rail molding a few inches from the ceiling around the perimeter of the room. Flat metal molding hooks and long strings or ribbons were then used to hang artwork down at eye level from the rail tops. Special molding hooks are available at most local hardware stores and can be permanently mounted in place with a small screw for added security. Option 2: For walls lacking picture rail molding, 3M’s Command line of hooks are an easy solution. Available in a wide range of options, these self-adhesive hooks stick well to most surfaces and leave no residue when they are removed. For best results, clean surfaces with rubbing alcohol before installing any type of adhesive hook. Option 3: Standard picture-hanging hooks work wonders in plaster walls. These

small “J” shaped metal hooks come in various sizes and can hold up to 100 pounds of weight. The mounting nail angles through the hook and into the wall holding the hook in place with a simple lever design. To reduce plaster damage, place a small piece of transparent tape on the wall before hammering the nail into place. Option 4: For heavier items, toggle bolts are the best option. These butterfly-like toggles thread onto long machine screws and offer the best support for securing objects to plaster walls. To use a toggle bolt, drill a hole large enough for the folded toggle to slip into the wall. Insert the machine screw through the mounting bracket of the object to be hung. Thread the toggle onto the screw end with the wings of the toggle folded inward, pointing toward the head of the screw. Push the toggle through the wall until the toggle wings spring freely open. Once the toggle bolt is in place, use a screw driver to tighten the bolt to the wall. When the toggle bolt is secured, the pressure of the toggle on the opposite side of the wall will hold most any object in place. — Linda Cottin can be reached at go@ljworld.com.

ognitive decline, including memory loss, is one of the top fears among people over the age of 55. More than half of baby boomers fear the loss of mental capacity, and 41 percent are afraid their brain fitness has decreased in the past 10 years, according to a 2010 report in Today’s Dietitian. There are easy lifestyle choices you can make every day to sustain your mental edge as you age.

Give your brain a workout. Exercise helps maintain a healthy body and brain. Research has found associations between physical activity and reduced risk of cognitive decline. Give your body and brain a workout by engaging in physical activities at least 30 minutes every day.

Nourish your mind. Protect brain cells from memory loss by following a diet rich in good fats such as DHA, a major structural fat accounting for up to 97 percent of the omega-3 fats in the brain. DHA intake has been associated with a decreased risk of mental decline associated with aging. Another easy way to get it is by taking a daily DHA supplement, clinically shown to improve memory in adults over 55, according to a study published in Alzheimer’s & Dementia: The Journal of the Alzheimer’s Association.

Activate your mind. Brain cells can grow bigger and stronger with cognitive challenges and stimulation. Pursuing education, learning a new language, reading and working crossword puzzles are fun ways to exercise your mind. By giving your brain a little more attention, you’ll not only lead a fuller life, but you’ll also be helping to keep your mental edge. — Family Features
