ALYSSA LYNN LEMING GIVES A BIG YAWN in her rocker on Monday in her Lecompton home. Hours after being sent home by an Olathe hospital on Friday, Patrick and Crystal Leming were on their way back to that hospital after Crystal went into labor, but they only made it as far as Lawrence before the contractions became too strong. The Lemings were driven to Lawrence Memorial Hospital by a crew of firefighter and EMTs, who delivered Alyssa in an elevator at the hospital. See the video at LJWorld.com.

Little girl’s unexpected arrival in elevator quickly earns her a nickname: Ellee By Brenna Hawley bhawley@ljworld.com

Alyssa Lynn Leming may forever be known as “Ellee.” That’s short for elevator, a nickname family members already have given the infant. Alyssa came into the world a lot quicker than her parents, Patrick and Crystal Leming, expected. The Lecompton couple spent almost four

years trying to get pregnant, but their first baby wasted little time in making her debut. Less than an hour after Crystal’s serious contractions started Friday night, Alyssa was born in an elevator at Lawrence Memorial Hospital. “We really didn’t think she was going to come that quick,” Patrick said. Alyssa is the first elevator

baby that LMH employees can remember, and she wasn’t even supposed to be born in Lawrence. Patrick, 35, and Crystal, 25, had been working with a doctor in Olathe and planned to have the baby there. In fact, they made a trip to the Olathe hospital Friday morning but were sent home with a pain medication prescription for Crystal.

About 8 p.m., Crystal knew things definitely were getting serious. So the couple started out on their second trip to Olathe. But near 31st and Iowa streets, Crystal knew they wouldn’t make it. “All the sudden, the contractions are horrible and there’s no time in between Please see BABY, page 2A

Presbyterian Manor rated 5 stars

Wakarusa Valley School would close next year and at least four of six other elementary schools in Lawrence would face consolidation within three to five years, under recommendations being forwarded to the Lawrence school board next week. The recommendations won approval consensus Monday from the Lawrence Elementary School Facility Vision Task Force, whose members finished work that started upon their appointment more than eight months ago. Scott Morgan, a school board member and cochairman of the task force, hailed the group’s work compiling data, criteria and conclusions, offering concrete steps for solving “an issue that has challenged this community” for 25 to 30 years. “It’s just been chewing at this community,” Morgan said. “We need to figure it out and take a step forward — whatever it is — and focus on what’s important here, and that’s the kids.

Changes to how the city funds social service agencies may be needed as state and federal dollars are expected to dwindle, several candidates for the Lawrence City Commission said at a Monday afternoon forum. Some candidates said the city may need to adopt more specific goals that will guide the commission in deciding which agencies get funding in the future. “I think we really need to talk about having a selection process that is aligned more with a vision of what we are trying to accomplish,” said candidate Hugh Carter. At a roundtable discussion of social service providers Monday, Carter raised the question most often about whether the current system was Please see CANDIDATES, page 2A

that information is done by an objective third party.” The nurse staff ing and quality measures are selfreported. She added the U.S. News list provides just a “snapshot” of activity at these nursing homes. “I think it’s really important to look at the trends as well as to look at who is doing well at the present moment,” McFatrich said. The U.S. News report looked at: ● Health inspections. These are conducted by state agencies about every 12 to 15 months. They also investigate complaints from residents, families and the public. It includes a checklist of 180 items, including food preparation, infection control, fire safety and proper skin care. Presbyterian Manor and LMH both received a fivestar rating, and Medicalodges earned three stars. ● Nurse staffing. To earn five stars, nurses and aides had to provide slightly more than four hours of care a day to each resident, including 33

minutes from registered nurses. Lawrence Presbyterian Manor earned four stars for providing 1 hour and 21 minutes per resident for all nurses, and Medicalodges earned four for providing 1 hour and 3 minutes. LMH was not evaluated in the category. ● Quality measures. Nursing homes submit clinical data for the most recent three quarters detailing the status of each Medicaid or Medicare resident in 19 indicators, such as the percentage of resident who had urinary tract infections. Lawrence Presbyterian Manor and Medicalodges earned five stars and LMH received four. Kansas Advocates for Better Care provides a list of Kansas nursing homes cited with 10 or more deficiencies for each of the home’s three most recent inspections, and a list of those with five or fewer deficiencies. No Lawrence or Eudora nursing homes made either list. — Health reporter Karrey Britt can be reached at 832-7190. Britt’s health blog can be found at WellCommons.com, and follow her at Twitter.com.

working the way it was intended. He said the city should have discussions about whether it wants city funds to primarily go towards safety-net types of services or whether it wanted to fund more services designed to keep people out of poverty. Several other candidates also said they expected the subject to be a big issue as federal stimulus dollars become more scarce and the state deals with a large budget gap. “It looks to me like the state is going to try to wriggle out of a lot of responsibilities,” City Commission candidate Bob Schumm said. “We need to be prepared for that.” Candidate Mike Machell said that it would be important for the city to communicate regularly with social service providers and for the City Commission to understand how the various service providers complement each other. “We can’t be thinking in silos on this issue,” Machell said. “We have to think pretty broadly.” Candidate Sven Alstrom said the city also will need to become more proactive in trying to forge alliances with other communities and

organizations that stand to lose out if social service funding is cut at the state level. Specifically, he said the city needs to work closer with Manhattan, Kansas State and the Kansas University Medical Center on the issue. “We need to try to reach outside of Lawrence to exert some influence,” Alstrom said. But all five candidates said they agreed that social service funding deserved a place in the city’s budget. City Commissioner Mike Dever, the lone incumbent seeking re-election, said the city has a role to play because he’s not convinced economic prosperity always trickles down to people in need. “It is something we always have to consider because how we treat the least of us is important,” Dever said. About 10 social service agencies participated in the informal roundtable event, which was hosted by the United Way of Douglas County. The five candidates are vying for three spots on the City Commission. The election will be April 5.

them,” Crystal said. Patrick called 911 and headed for a nearby fire station at 1911 Stewart Ave. Firefighters and EMTs had an ambulance ready and took Crystal to LMH. But on their way upstairs to the labor and delivery unit, “Ellee” was born. “About the time the elevator doors open, I say, ‘Can somebody please catch her head?’ and there she was born, right in the elevator,” Crystal said. By the time Crystal saw Patrick again, they had their first child, 5 pounds, 11 ounces and 18 inches long. A child they really weren’t sure they would ever have. “We had finally gotten to the point that when people asked if we were having children, I said we couldn’t,” Crystal said. Crystal plans to take baby Alyssa to the station soon to see the firefighters and EMTs who helped with the birth. “She has been marvelous and apparently already has a Nick Krug/Journal-World Photo flair for the dramatic,” Crystal said.

Task force_________________________ CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1A

“I think we’ve taken a majestic step forward for this community. … It’s something we can build on.” Members spent three hours discussing a variety of options for the future of the district’s 15 elementary schools, spending the bulk of their time deciding whether either one or two of three previously identified schools should close: Cordley, Pinckney or Wakarusa Valley. In the end, members decided that Wakarusa Valley — the district’s smallest, with 165 students projected for next year — should be closed. The building is at 1104 E. 1000 Road, just southeast of Clinton Lake.

Consolidations Also recommended by the task force: The school board should “start conversations” soon with administrators, teachers, parents and others connected with six other schools, to discuss how — not if — some schools would be consolidated during the next three to five years. The six schools in the running for consolidation are Kennedy, New York, Pinckney, Cordley, Hillcrest and Sunset Hill. The task force recommends that the school board consolidate the six schools into either four or possibly three, either by adding onto existing schools or building new ones. The district would propose financing the work with a bond issue that also would include improvements at remaining elementary schools, all without increas-

House panel backs voter ID bill

ing the district’s current property tax rate. Much of Monday’s discussion endorsed combining Kennedy and New York into one school, and Hillcrest and Sunset Hill into another. But members ultimately opted to support the inclusion of people who would be most affected by such decisions in helping make it work. “It leaves it open for the community to come to the table, to be part of the process, so a bond issue is more likely to pass,” said Jessica Beeson, a task force member.

Board at attention School board members are scheduled to receive the recommendations during their next meeting, set for 7 p.m. Monday at district headquarters, 110 McDonald Drive. Both Morgan and Rich Minder, the board’s president, served as leaders of the task force and will write the report that goes to the full board. All five other board members were in the audience Monday, listening alongside dozens of parents, principals, school board candidates and others interested in the task force’s long-term vision for the district’s elementary schools, given financial constraints. Vanessa Sanburn, for one, plans to meet soon with parents of some Wakarusa Valley students, to hear their concerns about their school’s potential closure. She also knows that she and her fellow board members will need to cut $3 million in spending for the next

when they initially register. Kobach says the changes are necessary to prevent voter fraud and to preserve the integrity of the election process. Democrats on the committee voted against the bill, saying the changes will disenfranchise voters by requiring extra steps to vote. The House expects to debate the bill later this week.

academic year and that closing Wakarusa Valley would be expected to save the district nearly $500,000 a year beginning in 2011-12. “I really appreciate all the work the task force did,” Sanburn said, after the meeting. “Their recommendation is a very heavy one. The budget situation is dire enough that I think I am prepared to take their recommendation and use it to prevent further program cuts. But I do want to have those conversations and see that their voices are heard.” Jen Nelson, who has had two kids go through Wakarusa Valley and has another two there now, knows that board members have yet to decide anything and that there’s still time to make a case for keeping the school open. But she heard plenty from task force members about the need for equity in the district, something she hopes holds true for families who would have their children transferred into Broken Arrow, Schwegler and Sunflower schools. “The Wakarusa families need to have some say in how this all goes down,” said Nelson, a leader in the school’s Science, Technology, Engineering and Math Committee. “The sad thing is, our children will be all split up. My children will no longer have their buddies around them. But having said that, they will be OK. … “It’s terrible for anyone, but there have to be sacrifices. And we’re the sacrificed.”

KANSAS HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

1 | WASHINGTON, D.C.

Arrested U.S. official is CIA contractor An American jailed in Pakistan for the fatal shooting of two armed men was secretly working for the CIA and scouting a neighborhood when he was arrested, a disclosure likely to further frustrate U.S. government efforts to free the man and strain relations between two countries partnered in a fragile alliance in the war on terror. Raymond Allen Davis, 36, had been working as a CIA security contractor and living in a Lahore safe house, according to former and current U.S. officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to talk publicly about the incident. Davis, a former Special Forces soldier who left the military in 2003, shot the men in what he described as an attempted armed robbery in the eastern city of Lahore as they approached him on a motorcycle. A third Pakistani, a bystander, died when a car rushing to help Davis struck him. Davis was carrying a Glock handgun, a pocket telescope and papers with different identifications. Meanwhile, the Obama administration insisted anew Monday that Davis had diplomatic immunity and must be set free.

Repeal of immigrant tuition law advances By Scott Rothschild srothschild@ljworld.com

TOPEKA — The House on Monday moved to repeal a 7-year-old law that allows students whose parents brought them to Kansas illegally to pay in-state college tuition. The measure advanced 69-49 on a nonrecord vote. A final vote is expected today. House members went over many of the same arguments that have been covered in recent years.

Opponents of the current law, including Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, say it is an incentive for illegal immigrants to come to Kansas. Supporters, which include education and religious representatives, say the law helps children who didn’t choose to come to the country illegally. The difference between instate and out-of-state tuition is significant. A first-time freshman who entered KU last fall paid $3,938 per semester for tuition if they were considered

Kansas residents. A nonresident paid $10,340. Under the current Kansas law, students are considered Kansas residents eligible for in-state tuition if they graduated from a Kansas high school or received a GED, have lived in the state for three years and pledge to become citizens. The Kansas Board of Regents said 413 students enrolled under the law last fall at state universities, community colleges and technical colleges. Rep. Mario Goico, R-Wichita,

Implants would fight mental diseases Call them brain pacemakers, tiny implants that hold promise for fighting tough psychiatric diseases — if scientists can figure out just where in all that gray matter to put them. Deep brain stimulation, or DBS, has proved a powerful way to block the tremors of Parkinson’s disease. Blocking mental illness isn’t nearly as easy a task. But a push is on to expand research into how well these brain stimulators tackle the most severe cases of depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder and Tourette’s syndrome — to know best how to use them before too many doctors and patients clamor to try. Unlike with tremor patients, the psychiatric patients who respond to DBS tend to improve gradually, sometimes to their frustration. They also need help learning to function much as recipients of hip replacements undergo physical therapy, says Dr. Helen Mayberg of Emory University.

Colonel gets 20 years after rape trial Nearly 50 women poured out their stories in a wave of anguish that ended Monday with the conviction of an army colonel for crimes against humanity — a landmark verdict in this Central African country where thousands are believed to be raped each year by soldiers and militia groups who often go unpunished. It was the first time a commanding officer had been tried in such an attack. Prosecutors had sought the death penalty for Lt. Col. Mutuare Daniel Kibibi, who was accused of ordering his troops on New Year’s Day to attack the village of Fizi, a sprawling community 20 miles south of Baraka on an escarpment of mountains covered in banana trees. Military prosecutor Col. Laurent Mutata Luaba said the men “behaved like wild beasts,” terrorizing defenseless civilians they had orders to protect. Doctors later treated 62 women for rape. One woman testified that Kibibi himself raped her for 40 minutes. Kibibi and the 10 of his men who stood trial with him were the only ones identified after the rampage.

The stepmother of a 10-year-old disabled girl was indicted Monday on a charge she murdered the child, and officials released the latest gruesome detail in the case of little, freckle-faced Zahra Baker: Her head is missing. Medical examiners said Zahra’s death was caused by “undetermined homicidal violence.” An autopsy was done even though authorities haven’t recovered many bones, most notably the girl’s skull, months after she was reported missing. Several bones showed cutting tool marks consistent with dismemberment. The revelation came in documents released by the state’s chief medical examiner shortly after officials in western North Carolina held a news conference about the second-degree murder charge. Authorities said Elisa Baker, who has been jailed since the weekend the girl was reported missing, desecrated Zahra’s remains to cover up the slaying.

U.S. Rep. Kevin Yoder revisits KU to talk politics By Andy Hyland ahyland@ljworld.com

ONLINE: See a video at LJWorld.com

These days, U.S. Rep. Kevin Yoder sounds like a Republican. At a public forum on the Kansas University campus, he talked about a lot of Republican stuff. How the country needs to rely on the private sector to create jobs, how there shouldn’t be any “sacred cows” protected from budget cuts and promoting the 10th Amendment, which limits the powers of the federal government. It was his second such event since becoming a congressman and marked a return for him to the campus where he served as

student body president. Back then, however, he said he had different ideas. He was a registered Democrat, once, he said, but Kansas’ 3rd District representative now runs on the Republican ticket. “My ideology changed here at KU,” he said. As students munched on pizza and peppered Yoder with all kinds of questions — friendly and unfriendly — the congressman stressed how it was important to promote civil dialogue. He encouraged all students — both those who identified themselves as liberals and those who called themselves conservatives — to listen to what the other side had to say. “We’re all smart people here,” he said, and sometimes

smart people disagree. Trent Boultinghouse, a KU junior from Girard, who caught part of Yoder’s presentation, said he probably leaned a little to the left politically. He said he didn’t mind Yoder’s political shift since his college days. “Obviously, if the man’s got a change of opinion, he’s not one that would rush into things, but he probably has researched his positions,” Boultinghouse said. “Obviously, he’s not the same person he was when he went to school here. I know I’ll probably be someone different five years from now than I am today.” — Higher education reporter Andy Hyland can be reached at 832-6388. Follow him on Twitter at twitter.com/LJW_KU.

T O P E K A — Former Kansas Attorney General Phill Kline testified Monday in an ethics hearing that he and his subordinates had the right to deceive other state agencies and didn’t have a duty to immediately correct flawed informa- Kline tion provided to a trial judge as they started investigating abortion providers. Kline faced more than three hours of questions from an official who filed an ethics complaint against him, stemming from investigations Kline pursued as attorney general from 2003 to 2007 and as Johnson County district attorney from 2007 to 2009. The three-member panel of the state Board for the Discipline of Attorneys that opened the hearing Monday will make a recommendation to the Kansas Supreme Court on what sanctions, if any, Kline should face. The complaint alleges Kline and subordinates misled other officials and mishandled patients’ medical records in investigating the late Dr. George Tiller, of Wichita, and a Planned Parenthood clinic in suburban Kansas City. Kline, an anti-abortion Republican, vigorously disputes the allegations, but said he’s not surprised to face a complaint because of past criticism of him by the clinics and other abortion rights advocates. Part of his testimony Monday focused on the beginning of his investigations of the two clinics in 2003, just months after he

Leavenworth County prosecutors have filed eight charges against a 64-year-old Tonganoxie man who is accused of sexually abusing a 12-year-old girl over a two-year period ending earlier in February. Leavenworth County Attorney Todd Thompson said the defendant appeared in court Friday. Prosecutors have COURTS filed two counts of child rape, one from February of this year and another from February of 2009. The man also faces two counts of aggravated indecent liberties with a child and four counts of aggravated criminal sodomy with a child younger than 14. The Journal-World generally does not identify sex crime suspects unless they are convicted. Thompson said the defendant is next due in Leavenworth County District Court on March 18.

Emergency managers, storm spotters, meteorologists and weather enthusiasts will gather March 19 for this year’s Severe Weather Symposium, hosted by Douglas County Emergency Management. The event is geared toward storm spotters, but is also open to the public. It will be held from 7 a.m. until 12:45 p.m. at the Lawrence Arts Center, 940 N.H., and costs $15 for each participant. Pre-registration is required by March 11 and can be done online at douglas-county.com/online_services/em/volunteering/symposium/em_symposium_regform.aspx. Participants can expect to learn about advanced storm development, the importance of storm spotting reports and safety precautions for spotters. David Imy, operations branch chief for the Storm Prediction Center, and Scott Blair, a forecaster with the Weather Forecast Office, are among the guest presenters at the event. The symposium will conclude with a roundtable discussion.

• Audio-Reader, KU’s reading service for the visually impaired, reported that someone stole eight of its computers worth more than $6,000 from its office, 1120 W. 11th St. The touchscreen computers allow readers to access newspapers online, and resize the typeface on the screen much like a smart phone. The theft occurred sometime between Jan. 30 and Feb. 16, and KU public safety officers are investigating. The computers were purchased as part of a grant from the Douglas County Community Foundation, which paid for 13 of the computers. Audio-Reader raised private funds to match the grant, and all told the project cost more than $17,000. “The project will continue to go forward,” Audio-Reader Director Janet Campbell said in a statement. “Individual recording studios will be outfitted. The ‘live studio’ can’t be upgraded right now and we won’t have any (computers) for backup.”

CONDITION UPDATE • A 24-year-old Olathe man was listed in serious condition Monday afternoon after he was injured early Sunday morning in a single-vehicle accident in southeastern Douglas County, according to a spokesman for Kansas University Hospital in Kansas City, Kan. The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office has identified the injured

man as Blaine Angell, and Wellsville police officers have said they were pursuing Angell’s vehicle before it rolled over at 1:30 a.m. in the 200 section of East 2300 Road, where the road turns from pavement to gravel. Wellsville officers had initially tried to stop Angell in a 2007 Mini Cooper before he crashed while headed north in southeastern Douglas County. Angell, who was ejected from the car during the crash, was flown to KU Hospital by helicopter ambulance, and sheriff’s officers said they suspect alcohol contributed to the wreck.

House committee to return to higher ed budget By Scott Rothschild srothschild@ljworld.com

TOPEKA — The House budget-writing committee balked Monday on the proposed higher education budget after several conservatives posed questions about a number of building projects at Kansas State University.

tuition — something he said was extremely difficult. After earning a degree, Goico joined the U.S. Air Force and retired after 32 years of service. But Rep. Caryn Tyson, RParker, said most Kansans want the law repealed. “Your constituents want it,” she said. Others argued that under federal law, Kansas had no right to grant resident status to people not here legally. But Rep. Barbara Ballard, D-Lawrence, said many of these young people know only Kansas as their home. “They want to be educated. If we allow that, they will serve the state well,” she said. Rep.

In testimony, Kline wouldn’t concede SRS had been deceived, but added that he viewed SRS as a became attorney general. Suspecting the clinics potential witness. ... Misleading SRS, he said, “would weren’t reporting cases of not have been a problem.” sexual abuse of children to authorities as required by law, his staff sought information about abuse reports from the state Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services. His staff wouldn’t fully disclose to SRS why it sought the information, and the complaint alleges Kline’s staff misled SRS officials. In testimony, K line wouldn’t concede SRS had been deceived, but added that he viewed SRS as a potential witness. He said courts regularly allow law enforcement off icials to withhold information from witnesses — and even actively deceive them and suspects — to protect an investigation. Misleading SRS, he said, “would not have been a problem.” “That is reasonable. That is normal conduct,” he testified, his voice rising. “It was appropriate.” Kline filed misdemeanor charges against Tiller in December 2006, accusing the doctor of performing illegal late-term abortions and failing to adequately report the details to the state, as required by law. The case was dismissed for jurisdictional reasons, and Kline’s successor filed different misdemeanor charges the following year. Tiller was acquitted in 2009, shortly before being murdered while attending church. A criminal case against the

Planned Parenthood clinic, filed by Kline as Johnson County district attorney in 2007, is pending. The clinic denies the allegations in the 107 charges that it performed illegal abortions and falsified records. Kline lost his bid for reelection as attorney general in 2006; Republicans selected him to fill a vacancy in the Johnson County job, but he lost the 2008 GOP primary for the post. He’s now an assisting visiting professor of law at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Va., founded by evangelist Jerry Falwell. The state Supreme Court — which already has criticized Kline in opinions in abortion cases — could impose no sanction, or a punishment ranging from an informal admonishment to the loss of his license to practice in state courts. But Kline’s license was suspended in October after he didn’t pay a $50 annual fee. “I don’t believe I should be here, and I didn’t want to pay you money,” Kline told state Disciplinary Administrator Stanton Hazlett during his testimony. The complaint notes under Kline, the attorney general’s office successfully sought in October 2003 to open a courtsupervised “inquisition” into the clinics, based partly on data from SRS. The inquisi-

tion allowed Kline to seek subpoenas for documents or testimony. Nine days later, an internal memo showed Kline’s staff knew the SRS data was flawed, but his office didn’t inform the judge until May 2004, nearly seven months later. “Shouldn’t you immediately inform the judge?” Hazlett asked. Kline replied: “I don’t know if that duty exists.” Kline noted his office told the judge the next time it sought a subpoena, arguing it fulfilled the requirement to make a correction. He noted that when Tiller’s attorneys raised the same issue in trying to block the doctor’s prosecution, the judge ruled the criminal case still should go forward. “We just have a difference of opinion about the duties of a prosecutor,” Kline told Hazlett. Kline said his complaint “parroted” arguments made by Tiller attorney Dan Monnat in 2008 in an unsuccessful attempt at getting the criminal case against Tiller dismissed. And in his opening statement, Kline attorney Reid Holbrook even guided the panel through similar passages in both. Later, Hazlett said his complaint contained numerous allegations not included in Monnat’s work.

Libyan leader goes on TV amid wave of protests LIBYAN CITIZENS WALK in front of a burned government building in Tripoli, Libya, on Monday in this photo released by China’s Xinhua News Agency.

By Sarah El Deeb and Maggie Michael Associated Press Writers

CAIRO — Deep rifts opened in Moammar Gadhaf i’s regime, with Libyan government officials at home and abroad resigning, air force pilots defecting and a bloody crackdown on protest in the capital of Tripoli, where cars and buildings were burned. Gadhafi went on state TV early today to attempt to show he was still in charge. World leaders expressed outrage Monday at the “vicious forms of repression” used against the demonstrators. The longest serving Arab leader appeared briefly on TV to dispel rumors that he had fled. Sitting in a car in front of what appeared to be his residence and holding an umbrella out of the passenger side door, he told an interviewer that he had wanted to go to the capital’s Green Square to talk to his supporters, but the rain stopped him. “I am here to show that I am in Tripoli and not in Venezuela. Don’t believe those misleading dog stations,” Gadhafi said, referring to the media reports that he had left the country. The video clip and comments lasted less than a minute — unusual for the mercurial leader, who is known for rambling speeches that often last hours. Pro-Gadhafi militia drove through Tripoli with loudspeakers and told people not to leave their homes, witnesses said, as security forces sought to keep the unrest that swept eastern parts of the country — leaving the second-largest city of Benghazi in protesters’ control — from overwhelming the capital of 2 million people. State TV said the military had “stormed the hideouts of saboteurs” and urged the pub-

lic to back security forces. Protesters called for a demonstration in Tripoli’s central Green Square and in front of Gadhafi’s residence, but witnesses in various neighborhoods described a scene of intimidation: helicopters hovering above the main seaside boulevard and pro-Gadhafi gunmen firing from moving cars and even shooting at the facades of homes to terrify the population. Youths trying to gather in the streets scattered and ran for cover amid gunf ire, according to several witnesses, who like many reached in Tripoli by The Associated Press spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of reprisal. They said people wept over bodies of the dead left in the street. Warplanes swooped low over Tripoli in the evening and snipers took up position on roofs, apparently to stop people outside the capital from joining protests, according to Mohammed Abdul-Malek, a Londonbased opposition activist in touch with residents. Gadhafi appeared to have lost the support of at least one major tribe, several military units and his own diplomats, including Libya’s ambassador in Washington, Ali Adjali. Deputy U.N. Ambassador Ibrahim Dabbashi accused Gadhafi of

committing genocide against his own people in the current crisis. The eruption of turmoil in the capital after seven days of protests and bloody clashes in Libya’s eastern cities sharply escalated the challenge to Gadhafi. His security forces have unleashed the bloodiest crackdown of any Arab country against the wave of protests sweeping the region, which toppled leaders of Egypt and Tunisia. At least 233 people have been killed so far, according to New York-based Human Rights Watch. The difficulty in getting information from Libya made obtaining a precise death toll impossible. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton called on Gadhafi to “stop this unacceptable bloodshed” and said the world was watching the events “with alarm.” British Prime Minister David Cameron, visiting neighboring Egypt, called the crackdown “appalling.” “The regime is using the most vicious forms of repression against people who want to see that country — which is one of the most closed and one of the most autocratic — make progress,” he said. Communications to Tripoli appeared to have been cut, and residents could not be reached by phone from outside the country.

State TV showed video of hundreds of Gadhafi supporters rallying in Green Square, waving palm fronds and pictures of him. State TV quoted Gadhafi’s son, Seif al-Islam, as saying the military conducted airstrikes on remote areas, away from residential neighborhoods, on munitions warehouses, denying reports that warplanes attacked Tripoli and Benghazi. Jordanians who fled Libya gave horrific accounts of a “bloodbath” in Tripoli, saying they saw people shot, scores of burned cars and shops, and what appeared to be armed mercenaries who looked as if they were from other African countries. Many billboards and posters of Gadhafi were smashed or burned along a road to downtown Tripoli, “emboldening” protesters, said a man who lives on the western outskirts of the capital. The first major protests to hit an OPEC country — and major supplier to Europe — sent oil prices jumping, and the industry has begun eyeing reserves touched only after Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and the first Gulf War in 1991.

6.3-magnitude quake strikes New Zealand By Joe Morgan Associated Press Writer

CHRISTCHURCH, NEW ZEALAND — A powerful earthquake struck New Zealand’s already-bruised city of Christchurch today, collapsing buildings, burying vehicles under debris and sending rescuers scrambling to help trapped people amid reports of multiple deaths. The 6.3-magnitude quake hit the country’s secondbiggest city on a busy weekday afternoon and closer to downtown than a major quake that damaged Christchurch last September but caused no deaths when it struck before dawn on a weekend. Police said there were reports of multiple fatalities from the latest temblor in the city of 350,000, while Prime Minister John Key told Parliament it was still too soon to confirm the deaths. The quake destroyed the spire of the iconic stone Christchurch Cathedral, which toppled into a central city square, and police said there was a report of two

buses crushed under falling buildings. Video footage showed some multistory buildings collapsed in on themselves, and others with walls that had collapsed into the streets, strewn with bricks and shattered concrete. Sidewalks and roads were cracked and split, and thousands of dazed, screaming and crying residents wandered through the streets as sirens blared. Groups of people helped victims clutching bleedings wounds, and others were carried to private vehicles in makeshift stretchers fashioned from rugs or bits of debris. Christchurch Mayor Bob Parker declared a state of emergency and ordered people to evacuate the city center. Troops were deployed to help people get out and to throw up a security cordon around the stricken area, said Deputy Prime Minister Bill English. “Make no mistake — this is going to be a very black day for this shaken city,” Parker said when asked about possible deaths.

BUSINESS AT A GLANCE

Notable ● No resolution appeared imminent Monday to the stalemate over union rights in Wisconsin, leaving Senate Republicans resigned to forge ahead with less-controversial business such as tax breaks for dairy farmers and commending the Green Bay Packers on winning the Super Bowl. As the standoff entered its second week, none of the major players offered any signs of backing down in a high-stakes game of political chicken that has riveted the nation and led to ongoing public protests that drew a high of 68,000 people on Saturday. Thousands more braved cold winds and temperatures in the 20s to march again on Monday, waving signs that said “Stop the attack on Wisconsin families” and “solidarity.” ● Chinese officials say Volvo Car Corp. plans a manufacturing base in the western Chinese city of Chengdu as it aims for expansion in the world’s biggest auto market following its buyout by independent automaker Geely. An official with the city’s Automotive Industry Investment Bureau confirmed a report Tuesday that the Swedish carmaker has chosen Chengdu as a manufacturing base, but would not give further details. The Volvo factory reportedly will be focused on making compact and economy cars on a large scale.

NEW YORK — It pays to be rich if you need a credit card. A year after sweeping credit card regulations upended the industry, banks are showering perks and rewards on big spenders with sterling credit scores. And they’re socking customers with spottier histories with higher interest rates, lower credit limits and new annual fees. In some cases the riskiest customers are being dropped altogether. The widening differences between how customers are treated is largely the result of new constraints on card issuers. The Credit Card Accountability, Responsibility and Disclosure Act, or the CARD Act, was signed into law with great fanfare at a time when borrowers across the country were struggling to make payments. It swept away several practices that for years had grated on cardholders. A key change is that issuers can no longer hike rates on existing balances or in the first year an account is open. The penalty charge for late payments is also capped at $25 per violation. And monthly statements must also clearly spell out the projected interest costs of making only minimum payments. The regulations are already transforming the cards on the market. To make up for the drop in revenue, banks are imposing new annual fees and hiking interest rates — but mostly for those with the lowest credit scores. The best customers are more prized than ever. Here’s how credit card offers

are changing for consumers in three credit brackets: The A-list (excellent credit): A clean payment history and a healthy appetite for spending put these customers at the top of the credit pyramid. And the courtship of this group is intensifying. Prior to the recession, 44 percent of all credit card offers were mailed to this group. Now they receive 64 percent of all mailings, according to market researcher Synovate. The B-list (good to fair credit): The next swath of consumers have solid credit histories, but may have more modest spending habits or make an occasional late payment. Many of these customers are seeing an uptick in offers for rewards cards, but the terms aren’t dramatically different. A few rungs down the credit ladder, however, are those with spottier records. These customers make late payments often enough to raise red flags or regularly carry balances close to their credit limits. They may not be financial disasters, but they’re not entirely reliable either. Most of these B-listers still won’t have any trouble getting approved for a new credit card, but they’ll have to agree to higher interest rates and annual fees. The D-List (poor credit): For the riskiest consumers with an established streak of defaults and late payments, the recession isn’t the only reason the options have dried up. The CARD Act means banks can no longer freely raise rates or impose fees to manage their default risk, says Dennis Moroney, a credit card analyst with TowerGroup.

ince we o!cially launched WellCommons 1.0—our ground-breaking local health site last April, we’ve been listening to the requests of the members of our Lawrence/Douglas County community. We’ve made small changes to the site, mainly by making it easier to use and more accessible by integra"ng the stories into LJWorld.com’s home page.

Next week, we’ll launch some major modiďƒžca!ons to create WellCommons 2.0. The home page will look very di"erent... it will be cleaner, simpler and display more stories—more than a dozen at a !me—and it will have more photos and video. Our community has put quite a bit of informa!on about local health resources onto the site. We’re pu#ng that informa!on into a central sec!on so that people can have a wide variety of local health resources at their ďƒžnger!ps. We’re star!ng a new sec!on called Kiddos, for families with young children. And we’re incorpora!ng the businesses from

We envision WellCommons 3.0 to include topic pages (on health reform in Kansas, for example), a goals applica!on, and an improved events calendar. We’re hoping to develop those changes later this year. Thank you for your con!nued interest and par!cipa!on in WellCommons, the Forum for Community Health Solu!ons. We’re commi$ed to making this a safe place and a trusted source for local health news and informa!on. We couldn’t do this without you.

Neuvant House is much more than a house—it’s a lovely home with well designed private suites. We care for each person as an individual, with a lifetime of unique experiences.

Promising hire Lawrence’s new police chief has an opportunity to put his experience and inside knowledge to work to benefit his department.

H

is 19 years of experience in the Lawrence Police Department could be viewed as either a positive or a negative for new police chief Tarik Khatib. While it’s true that an outside candidate might have brought some new ideas to the Lawrence department, Khatib’s long experience with the department and the community give him insights and inside knowledge that also will be an asset to the new chief. The need to look outside the department for someone to replace former chief Ron Olin would have been greater if the police department didn’t have a strong reputation as an effective and professional operation. As it is, Khatib is in a position to take a department with a good reputation and make it even better. He already is working to increase transparency and improve communication with the public about police operations, which many people saw as a weakness of the department under Olin. He also has expressed a desire to be more proactive in preventing crime in Lawrence by better educating the public on how to avoid becoming a crime victim. You don’t spend 19 years in an organization without forming some ideas and opinions about how things might be done a little better. Khatib was hired as a police off ice in Lawrence in 1991 and has held many different roles in the department. He has had the opportunity to observe where the department works well and where it might be improved. Now he can put some of those ideas into practice. The fact that he has been in their shoes also must build Khatib’s respect and credibility in the department he now oversees. Khatib has spent his entire career with the LPD, but he grew up in Chicago and has trained at the FBI National Academy in Quantico, Va. He’s well qualified for the job. When he was named as interim chief Khatib said he fell in love with Lawrence when he came here to attend Kansas University and wanted to be involved with the community. Police work is just an extension of that, he said: “I view police work as community involvement.” Khatib’s predecessor ran a clean and efficient police department, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t room for improvement. A chief who respects the importance of a professionally run department and can combine that need with a new emphasis on interacting with the community has the potential for long-term success in Lawrence.

Democrats are party of government MADISON, WIS. — Hitherto, when this university town and seat of state government applauded itself as “the Athens of the Midwest,” the sobriquet suggested kinship with the cultural glories of ancient Greece. Now, however, Madison resembles contemporary Athens. This capital has been convulsed by government employees sowing disorder in order to repeal an election. A minority of the minority of Wisconsin residents who work for government (300,000 of them) are resisting changes to benefits that most of Wisconsin’s 5.6 million residents resent financing. Serene at the center of this storm sits Republican Scott Walker, 43, in the governor’s mansion library, beneath a portrait of Ronald Reagan. Walker has seen this movie before. As Milwaukee County executive, he had similar dust-ups with government workers unions, and when the dust settled, he was resoundingly re-elected, twice. If his desire to limit collective bargaining by such unions to salary issues makes him the “Midwest Mussolini” — some protesters did not get the memo about the new civility — other supposed offenses include wanting state employees to contribute 5.8 percent of their pay to their pension plans (most pay less than 1 percent), which would still be less than the average in the private sector. He also wants them to pay 12.6 percent of the cost of their health care premiums — up from about 6 percent but still much less

than the private sector average. He campaigned on this. Union fliers distributed during the campaign attacked his “5 and 12” plan. He says his brother, a hotel banquet manager, and his sister-inlaw, who works at Sears, “would love to have” what he is offering the unions. For some of Madison’s graying baby boomers, these protests are a jolly stroll down memory lane. Tune up the guitars! “This is,” Walker says, “very much a Sixties mentality.” He does, however, think there is sincerity unleavened by information: Many protesters do not realize that most worker protections — merit hiring; just cause for discipline and termination —

are the result not of collective bargaining but of Wisconsin’s uniquely strong and century-old civil service law. “I am convinced,” he says, “this is about money — but not the employees’ money.” It concerns union dues, which he wants the state to stop collecting for the unions, just as he wants annual votes by state employees on recertifying the unions. He says many employees pay $500 to $600 annually in union dues — teachers pay up to $1,000. Given a choice, many might prefer to apply this money to health care premiums or retirement plans. And he thinks “eventually” most will say about the dues collectors, “What do we need this for?” Such unions are government organized as an interest group to lobby itself to do what it always wants to do anyway — grow. These unions use dues extracted from members to elect their members’ employers. And governments, not disciplined by the need to make a profit, extract government employees’ salaries from taxpayers. Government sits on both sides of the table in cozy “negotiations” with unions. A few days after Obama submitted a budget that would increase the federal deficit, he tried to sabotage Wisconsin’s progress toward solvency. The Washington Post: “The president’s political machine worked in close coordination ... with state and national union officials to mobilize thousands of protesters to gather in Madison and to plan similar

demonstrations in other state capitals.” Walker notes that in the 1990s, Wisconsin was a trend-setter regarding school choice and welfare reform. Obama, he thinks, may be worried that Wisconsin might again be a harbinger. He also thinks Obama’s intervention demonstrates why presidents should serve apprenticeships as governors. He says that Obama, in the Illinois Legislature and the U.S. Senate, “was a liberal among liberals,” and liberals are his base, and his staff comes from it. Governors, Walker says, get used to considering the interests of broad constituencies. Walker’s calm comportment in this crisis is reminiscent of President Reagan’s during his 1981 stand against the illegal strike by air traffic controllers, and Margaret Thatcher’s in the1984 showdown with the miners’ union over whether unions or Parliament would govern Britain. Walker, by a fiscal seriousness contrasting with Obama’s lack thereof, and Obama, by inciting defenders of the indefensible, have made three things clear: First, the Democratic Party is the party of government, not only because of its extravagant sense of government’s competence and proper scope, but also because the party’s base is government employees. Second, government employees have an increasingly adversarial relationship with the governed. Third, Obama’s “move to the center” is fictitious. — George Will is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.

Kansas University’s proposed new humanities building was still facing YEARS obstacles as the AGO Kansas Board of IN 1971 Regents rejected all bids on a $2.5 million revenue bond issue which would help finance the building. Plans for the new building, which was to be named for former KU Chancellor W. Clarke Wescoe, had first been unveiled in November 1967, when it was a 25-story structure that would have been the tallest in Kansas. The plans were changed in 1968 to call for a 15story building, but in May of 1969, when bids exceeded available funds, all previous plans had been scrapped and the project re-started. The four-story plan had emerged and the KU Student Senate in 1970 had committed students to paying $7.50 a semester to help finance the building. — Compiled by Sarah St. John

Over the years, my wife and I have supported Kansas Public Radio, our local, award-winning station, which brings to Kansas and beyond certain NPR programs, as well as informative and cultural programs generated by its talented and dedicated staff. The failure of national and state government to continue to fund NPR, PBS and KPR would seriously begin to unravel the democratic fabric of our republic and undermine our continuous striving to form a more perfect Union. Ted Johnson, Lawrence

To the editor: The Borders closing is no surprise to those of us who voted against the new $18 million library. Borders stated its bankruptcy is due to its failure to recognize the declining need for traditional books. Technology has made large bookstores and large libraries unnecessary and wasteful. Voting for a larger library is equivalent to, 100 years ago, ignoring the reality of automobiles and voting to build larger horse barns. The stupidity of voting for an $18 million library is compounded by the fact that all levels of government are in a debt crisis. Spending money we don’t have on things we don’t need is the reason cities, states and the federal government are broke. To the editor: Ed White, Congress is about to embark Lawrence on a debate about where to cut $61 billion from the budget submitted by the present administration.

fly its drones armed with Hellfire missiles and firing them indiscriminately at any sizable gathering, killing an occasional Taliban but many more innocents including women and children. Then, for each one maimed and killed, we create 10 more Taliban. Do they not know that Afghanistan is the world champion at resisting occupation and reeducation? The British empire failed in the 19th and early 20th century when 25 percent of the world’s population was within their empire. The Russians failed miserably with over half a million of their elite troops there and left with their tail between their legs. Now, America, with 40 or 50 thousand in a population of 27 to 30 million Muslims, will also fail miserably just as in Vietnam. What fools are we to let our government put the cream of our youth into this unwinnable war? May God forgive us, for history will not. Everett Hickam, Lawrence

Arts cuts To the editor: Thanks to the Journal-World for Sunday’s editorial, “Arts value,” questioning the decision of Kansas Gov. Brownback to abolish the Kansas Arts Commission. The editorial includes a number of important reasons why the abolition of the Arts Commission is a bad idea, including the loss of arts funding to rural areas that

Gov. Brownback has pledged to support. Gov. Brownback wants to show this as a purely economic decision, cutting the budget in tough times. The Journal-World shows how this is a poor decision indeed even as a matter of economics, as considerable matching grants from the federal government (estimated at $1.2 million) will likely be lost if the commission is abolished. There will also be considerable losses in the state’s nonprofit arts and cultural sector, “a $153.5 million industry that supports 4,000 full-time equivalent jobs.” Thanks to the Journal-World for challenging the governor’s bad decision. A majority vote in either the Kansas House or Senate will cancel the governor’s executive order abolishing the Kansas Arts Commission, and as the Journal-World editorial strongly suggests, this is the right thing to do.

Eisenhower honored in Texas birthplace DENISON, TEXAS (AP) — The North Texas birthplace of Dwight D. Eisenhower honored his memory with a monument being dedicated on President’s Day. City dignitaries on Monday dedicated the President Dwight D. Eisenhower Veterans Monument to salute the late 34th U.S. president. The monument features a 16-foot bust sculpted by artist David Adickes and also includes five flagpoles to represent the five branches of military service. Eisenhower was born in 1890, but his family moved to Abilene, Kan., within his first year. He was the supreme commander of U.S. and allied forces during World War II and president in 1953-61. Eisenhower died in 1969. Denison is a community of 25,000, located 65 miles north of Dallas. The Dwight D. Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum is in Abilene, Kan.

KANSAS GUARD ELIJAH JOHNSON (15) PUTS UP A THREE-POINTER over the Oklahoma State defense during the second half. Johnson, starting in place of suspended Tyshawn Taylor, had 15 points in KU’s 92-65 victory Monday in Allen Fieldhouse.

Johnson makes most of starting opportunity By Gary Bedore gbedore@ljworld.com

Newly suspended Tyshawn Taylor slapped his replacement in the starting lineup on the backside as Elijah Johnson checked out with a couple of minutes left in Kansas University’s 92-65 rout of Oklahoma State on Monday night in Allen Fieldhouse. “Attaboy,” Taylor said to a grinning Johnson, who had scored a career high 15 points off 5-of-6 shooting, including 4-for-4 from three. Johnson kept that smile on his

face in the postgame interview room as he discussed perhaps his best game as a Jayhawk. “I found out right before we came out of the locker room,” Johnson said of learning he’d open at point guard for Taylor, who coach Bill Self said has been suspended indefinitely for violating team rules. Self wouldn’t get specific in a press release reporting the suspension or after the game. What were Johnson’s feelings upon learning he’d be introduced as a starter for just the second time his sophomore season?

“That it was a challenge and I’d be ready for it,” Johnson said. “I try not to think about it. I just want to be ready when my number is called,” added Johnson, who played a whopping 30 minutes. “I knew it’d be called more often because we need somebody to fill his spot. But I didn’t talk much about it before the game. I prepare the same way every day, whether I get two minutes or 35 minutes. I just try to be ready to play. “I thought I did well, but there’s stuff I can improve on,” he

continued. “I went 3-3 (actually three assists, two turnovers). I threw the ball away a couple of times, two to three unforced turnovers I felt we could have had four more points there.” Johnson — he was overshadowed a bit by Marcus Morris, who had 27 points, and Thomas Robinson, who scored six points and grabbed six rebounds just 10 days after undergoing knee surgery — was most proud of his defense. Johnson opened on OSU sharpshooter Keiton Page, who scored eight points off 2-of-11

shooting. Page had three points the first half as KU blazed to a 5228 lead. “It’s all I really cared about tonight,” Johnson said. “I didn’t care about starting or scoring or nothing. I knew Tyshawn wouldn’t be here to stop him, so I knew I had to be there. I knew it’d reflect on me (badly) if I didn’t (slow him). I didn’t want that bad name. I wanted to make a statement, kind of like against Pullen (Jacob, whom Johnson guarded with some success at K-State,

Did Taylor just get Pipped?

KANSAS GUARD ELIJAH JOHNSON, LEFT, GETS A SLAP ON THE BACK OF THE HEAD from teammate Tyshawn Taylor and a high five from Royce Woolridge after coming out of the game against Oklahoma State.

Lou Gehrig didn’t become Lou Gehrig in one night, so it’s a little early to fit Elijah Johnson for the moniker Wally Pip, but Johnson’s performance in the first game of Tyshawn Taylor’s untimely indefinite suspension opened a door that Johnson walked through quite gracefully Monday. After Johnson contributed 15 points and three assists with just two turnovers in Kansas University’s 92-65 rout of Oklahoma State in Allen Fieldhouse, the victorious coach made it clear with several statements that the starting point-guard position is Johnson’s to lose. As Artie Johnson used to say on Rowan and Martin Laugh-In, “Interesting. Very interesting.”

Gehrig saw to it that he never got back in. Taylor, of course, didn’t ask out of the lineup. He was told by his coach that whatever team rule he broke, he got caught breaking it. The team needed either Johnson, who started the season with a two-game suspension for non-specific knuckle-headed behavior, or Selby to play terrifically to shift the focus away from Taylor’s latest selfdestructive transgression. Johnson did so by for the most part being content to run the offense that very often resulted in either Marcus Morris showing why he’s a strong Big 12 Player of the Year candidate or in Please see JOHNSON, page 5B

Source: Anthony traded to Knicks N E W Y O R K ( A P ) — Carmelo Anthony is getting his wish, and the New York Knicks are getting a second superstar. The Knicks have agreed to a trade with the Denver Nuggets for Anthony, a person familiar with the deal told the Associated Press on Monday night. The deal that would end the seasonlong trade saga involving Denver’s All-Star forward and send him to his desired destination can’t be finalized until today during a conference call with the NBA office. Assuming it goes through, it puts Anthony alongside Amar’e

Stoudemire in a potentially explosive frontcourt — at a heavy cost to the Knicks. The person provided no other details of whom was in the deal, which was first reported Monday by the Denver Post. The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because he Anthony was not authorized to comment publicly on the trade.

SURPRISE, ARIZ. (AP) — Bruce Chen went nearly four years without winning a majorleague game before he led the Kansas City Royals with 12 victories last year. He went from begging for a minor-league contract in 2009 after missing the previous season because of elbow surgery to arriving in spring training this year with a $2 million contract. “I wanted to be back, but I didn’t hear from the Royals for a long time, and there were some other teams offering,” Chen said Monday. “Then they said we would like to have you back. We want to see if we’re going to trade one of the right-handers. I’m thinking Greinke.” Chen’s 4.17 earned-run average last year was slightly lower than Zack Greinke’s, and Chen had two more wins. Greinke, the 2009 AL Cy Young Award winner, was dealt in December to the Milwaukee Brewers. “They trade Greinke, and we don’t talk for awhile,” Chen said. “It Chen was like ‘Man, it’s January, and I better do something quick.’ I say to my agent, ‘Let’s go back to Kansas City and see what their best offer is. Let’s see if we can get a deal done.’ Both sides were willing to work on something. In less than a week the contract is done.” The 33-year-Chen went 12-7 and won his final four starts, including a two-hitter against Tampa Bay for his first career shutout. He was hoping for a multiyear contract, but never received a two-year offer. When Chen beat Seattle on Aug. 6, 2009, it was his first big league victory since Oct. 2, 2005. He went 1-13 with Baltimore, Texas and Kansas City in that span. Then, Chen came within one win last year of the career high he set in 2005. “It wasn’t just one thing,” Chen said. “I had to change a lot of things. You can’t expect like one little tweak and it’s going to help me win 12 games or try to form me into a different pitcher. First of all, it all started in the offseason. I trained. I was in the best shape. I also dropped down my arm angle. All those bad years I learned from that, too. I got much more experience. I see what works, what didn’t work. Then I learned how to pitch a lot more. I studied a lot of film too. My preparation before the game was very good. All those four things, I think, helped me have the year I had last year.” Pitching coach Bob McClure said being injury free was a key. “It was his second year of not being hurt,” McClure said. “His command was better. He changed his arm angle a little bit. All of those things contributed. His brain worked right on how he could mix pitches. He’s become a complete pitcher.” Manager Ned Yost is happy to have Chen back. “He started having a little more deception with three different arm slots,” Yost said. “He threw more strikes. He kept the ball down. He changed speeds real well from three different angles. Bruce is a different look guy. Bruce will throw an 83 miles-per-hour fastball and then throw a 91miles-per-hour fastball to get you to swing. It’s a look you don’t see a lot in the American League. That’s to Bruce’s advantage.”

The Nuggets have explored an Anthony trade since he refused to sign the three-year contract extension worth nearly $65 million they offered him last summer. They appeared on the verge of sending him to the New Jersey Nets on multiple occasions, but the Knicks increased their offer enough to land Anthony, who was believed to prefer New York all along. The Knicks would hope he could be in uniform Wednesday when they host the Milwaukee Bucks. Anthony led the Nuggets to the playoffs in each of his first seven seasons in Denver.

Duke back at No. 1; KU drops to 3 Duke is back on top of the Associated Press’ college basketball poll for the first time in just over a month. St. John’s is back in the Top 25 for the first time in over a decade. The Blue Devils (25-2) jumped from fifth to No. 1 on Monday after a week that saw the top four teams in the poll all lose. The move to the top is the biggest since Kansas went from sixth to No. 1 in November 2003, the last time the top four all lost in the same week. Duke, which was No. 1 in the preseason poll and for the first eight weeks of the regular season, received 35 first-place votes from the 65-member national media panel. Five other teams received first-place votes this week, another indication of the parity this season. The only change near the bottom of the rankings was that St. John’s (17-9), which beat a top 10 team for the fourth time this season with a win over Pittsburgh on Saturday, moved in at No. 23. The Red Storm were last ranked in November 2000. Ohio State stayed No. 2 with 10 first-place votes, while Kansas dropped from No. 1 to third with five first-place votes. Pittsburgh, No. 1 on 12 ballots, stayed fourth, and Texas, which got one first-place vote, fell two spots to fifth. San Diego State, BYU, which had two firstplace votes, Purdue, Notre Dame and Arizona rounded out the top 10. Ohio State followed Duke to No. 1 holding the top spot for four weeks before Kansas took over for one week. Besides St. John’s win over Pittsburgh, Kansas lost to Kansas State, Ohio State lost to Purdue and Texas lost to Nebraska in the week it wasn’t safe to be at the top of the rankings.

COLLEGE WOMEN’S BASKETBALL UConn back atop AP poll Connecticut is back at No. 1. UConn received 37 of the 40 first-places votes Monday in the women’s college basketball poll by the Associated Press. Secondranked Stanford got the other three. The Huskies spent a record 51 straight weeks at No. 1 before their loss to the Cardinal on Dec. 30 dropped them down a spot. Ever since falling to second in the poll on Jan. 3, UConn had been moving closer to Baylor before the Lady Bears lost to Texas Tech on Saturday. ● Polls on page 10B

The Post, citing a league source, said the Knicks would send Wilson Chandler, Raymond Felton, Danilo Gallinari, Timofey Mozgov and a 2014 first-round draft pick to the Nuggets, who would get additional picks and cash. Along with Anthony, New York would acquire Chauncey Billups, Shelden Williams, Anthony Carter and Renaldo Balkman, according to the Post. ESPN later reported it was a three-way deal with Minnesota, which would acquire Eddy Curry and Anthony Randolph from the Knicks for Corey Brewer.

LUBBOCK, TEXAS — A $500,000-per-year pay raise recently awarded Texas Tech football coach Tommy Tuberville through 2015 has angered some university faculty members, who have been asked to take a pay freeze in 2011. Facing an 8 percent state-funding reduction and with more funding cuts possible, Tech officials killed $3 million in faculty raises for 2011. However, Tuberville’s new five-year, $11 million contract guarantees the coach at least $2 million per year. That’s up from $1.5 million in the contract he signed in 2010.

Vikings slap tag on LB Greenway

N.Y. ‘too busy building mansions?’

EDEN PRAIRIE, MINN. — The Minnesota Vikings placed the franchise tag on Chad Greenway on Monday, backing up their offseason statements about wanting to keep the 28-year-old linebacker in purple.

TAMPA, FLA. — New York Yankees co-chairman Hank Steinbrenner thinks his team’s celebration of its 2009 World Series championship may have lasted too long. “I think, maybe, they celebrated too much last year,” Steinbrenner said Monday. “Some of the players, too busy building mansions and doing other things and not concentrating on winning. I have no problem saying that.”

WOMEN’S BASKETBALL

KU senior guard Brown suspended J-W Staff Reports

Kansas University women’s basketball coach Bonnie Henrickson announced Monday afternoon that senior guard Marisha Brown has been suspended indefinitely for violating team rules. “Marisha Brown will remain a member of our team and continue to practice until she

is reinstated for competition, however, we are very disappointed in her,” Henrickson said in a release. Brown has started seven of 18 games for KU this season and is averaging 4.0 points and 2.4 rebounds. The Kansas City, Mo., native missed eight games earlier this season due to a broken foot. Tyshawn Taylor from the KU men’s squad was suspended on Monday for violating team rules as well. The KU women will travel to Oklahoma State on Wednesday.

Soph Davis wins player of week J-W Staff Reports

I R V I N G , T E X A S — Kansas sophomore forward Carolyn Davis was named Phillips 66 Big 12 Women’s Basketball Player of the Week for the f irst time in her career after leading the Jayhawks to Davis a 75-70 overtime victory over Missouri on Saturday. Davis scored a career-best 34 points in the victory off of

13-of-16 (81.3 percent) shooting. She made eight of 13 shots from the foul line, scoring 20 of her 34 points in the second half and overtime. Davis also pulled down a team-high nine rebounds, to go along with two assists and a block. Davis leads the Big 12 and ranks second nationally in field-goal percentage (66.8 percent). She is currently third in the Big 12 in scoring (18.7 points per game) and 10th in rebounding (7.4 rebounds per game). Davis was the first KU player to be honored with the award since Danielle McCray on Dec. 28, 2009.

‘Cuse knocks off No. 15 ‘Nova PHILADELPHIA (AP) — For one night free-throw shooting in the Big East turned upside down. No. 17 Syracuse, last in the 16-team league in that stat at 65.5 percent, made the foul shots that counted Monday night in a 69-64 victory over No. 15 Villanova, the conference’s best team at 76.8 percent. Scoop Jardine and Rick Jackson — a couple of Philly kids — combined for 38 points, and freshman Dion Waiters, another Philadelphia product, and Jackson made the final free throws that sealed the win. “We’ve been pretty good at the end of games,” Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim said. “We’ve been pretty good when we need them, and tonight we needed them.” Jardine had 20 points and six assists for the Orange (236, 10-6), while Jackson had 18 points, five rebounds and four blocks.

SYRACUSE FORWARD RICK JACKSON THROWS DOWN a dunk against Villanova. Jackson converted two key free throws that sealed a 69-64 victory over Villanova on Monday in Philadelphia. The win was the sixth this season over a ranked team for Syracuse, tying it with Texas for the most in the country. The teams swapped road wins, with Villanova winning, 83-72, at Syracuse on Jan. 22.

“After they beat us like that with all those threes (11), we got them off their spots and our guards did a great job of staying in front of them,” Jackson said. Corey Stokes returned

from missing three games because of a turf-toe injury to lead the Wildcats (21-7, 9-6) with 24 points. It was at the free-throw line where the teams traded places. Villanova was 17-of-27 at the line. Stokes, third in the nation at 93.5 percent, went 5-of-8. Syracuse went 13-of-17 from the line, a performance topped off by Jackson making two with 4.6 seconds to go.

NBA

Can Lakers get it together, host NBA finals, too? LOS ANGELES (AP) — The AllStar game was never supposed to be Kobe Bryant’s highlight at Staples Center this season. Not when his two-time defending champion Los Angeles Lakers were expected to have a shot at a third in a row. Even after LeBron James and Chris Bosh joined Dwyane Wade in Miami, the Heat agreed with Michael Jordan that the Lakers were the favorites until somebody beat them in June. These days, June basketball doesn’t even look like a sure thing for the Lakers. They stumbled into the AllStar break with three straight losses, capped by a defeat in Cleveland against a Cavaliers team they beat by 55 earlier in the season. But nobody is counting Bryant’s bunch out yet. “They are the champions. We understand and know the second half of the season, they are going to play even better and when it comes time to win, they are going to be the team to beat,” Wade said. Wade’s Heat might have the team to do it, and the Boston Celtics would love another shot at their biggest rivals after losing in seven games last June. But first, the Lakers have to prove they’re the best in the West before they worry about who’s tops in the East. They are currently third in 1 the conference, 8 ⁄ 2 games behind NBA-leading San

1 Antonio and 2 ⁄2 back of second-place Dallas. But the Lakers looked shaky late last season also before putting it together.

“It has been like a lot of hot and cold this season, a lot of contrasts and looking for a level of consistency,” All-Star forward Pau Gasol said. “I feel that we can do that.” Bryant won his fourth AllStar MVP award Sunday, scoring 37 points and grabbing 14 rebounds in the Western Conference’s 148-143 victory over the East. He looked poised for the stretch run, with a couple of soaring dunks, one over a chasing James, that showed there’s plenty of bounce left in his sometimes aching legs. The season resumes today, with the first business finally providing a conclusion to the Carmelo Anthony situation. The Denver Nuggets traded Anthony, Chauncey Billups, Shelden Williams, Anthony Carter and Renaldo Balkman to the New York Knicks Monday night for Wilson Chandler, Raymond Felton, Danilo Gallinari, Timofey Mozgov and a 2014 first-round draft pick. Even if the Lakers get things figured out, the road to the NBA finals might go through San Antonio. With a 46-10 record and health they haven’t enjoyed in recent years, the Spurs seem capable of winning a fifth title with Tim Duncan after they struggled just to reach the postseason in 2010. “Last year we had 50 wins the whole season and now we have 46, so no one really expected it,” All-Star Manu

Ginobili said. “We have always been healthy and nobody misses a game, and we got the experience and we got a better bench.” While they cruise out West, Boston leads Miami by percentage points in the East, with Chicago two games back. The Celtics are 3-0 against the Heat, but haven’t been able to keep centers Shaquille O’Neal and Jermaine O’Neal healthy to surround their four AllStars. “We are not where we want to be. I mean, I know it sounds crazy, still at the top of the East and we have the best record, but I don’t think we are near where we want to be,” Paul Pierce said. “We battled a lot of injury. We battled inconsistent play over the last couple of weeks. We are just fortunate to be in the position that we have. We haven’t been healthy all year long. I’m just waiting to see what’s going to happen in the next couple of weeks when we get about 95 percent healthy, to see what’s really going to happen.” The Knicks are sixth in the East, in position to make their first playoff appearance since 2004. They lurk as a dangerous lower seed with the addition of Anthony to join fellow All-Star Amar’e Stoudemire in an explosive frontcourt. The MVP race could come down to Chicago point guard Derrick Rose or James, who has won the award twice already.

NOTEBOOK

Taylor out ‘indefinitely’ Kansas University men’s basketball coach Bill Self announced Monday morning that he had suspended junior guard Tyshawn Taylor indefinitely for violating team rules. “Although we are disappointed in Tyshawn, he will remain a member of our team and practice with our team until he is reinstated for competition,” Self said. Taylor has started 26 of 27 games for KU this season, averaging 8.8 points per game. The Hoboken, N.J., native ranks third in the Big 12 with 4.7 assists per game. On Monday, he missed the first game of his three-year KU career. As to whether he’ll miss more ... “I said ‘indefinitely.’ That’s what it is,” Self said of the suspension. “He is going to have to do some things. I like Tyshawn. I like him. Everybody on our team does, but he put himself above everybody else here of late so I don’t know how long it’ll be.” Self was asked if Taylor’s suspension had anything to do with KU women’s player Marisha Brown also being suspended indefinitely Monday. “I don’t know. I have my own issues. I don’t check to see what is going on with the women’s program,” Self said. Taylor, of course, has been in hot water with the program before, but not in a while. In January of his sophomore season, Self ordered Taylor to close his Facebook account. He’d written that he was considering a transfer from KU. He also posted comments after getting in a fight with KU football players early first semester last school year. He suffered a hand injury in that altercation. Asked if he was disappointed, Self said: “It’s not anything personal, but, yeah, I’m disappointed. He (Taylor) is disappointed, too. I like him. I think that’s been evident over time. It’s time for somebody else to step up. Unfortunately, it’s this late (in season). We’ll need him when he gets back.” KU has had three players suspended by Self this season.

Elijah Johnson was suspended two games for disciplinary reasons and Mario Little six games after an arrest in a domestic-disturbance case facing misdemeanor battery charges. Also, Josh Selby was suspended nine games by the NCAA for accepting improper benefits in high school. In addition, Marcus Morris was ejected from the Cal game for a flagrant foul. Markieff Morris had intentional fouls in a pair of games this season. ESPN analyst Doug Gottlieb questioned the character of KU’s team on Monday. USA Today quoted Gottlieb as saying: “I think they have some character issues on this team. … That's probably the only thing that can derail them. Immensely talented team but those character issues … this can be devastating news especially considering the amount of time and effort they put into Tyshawn Taylor." Asked if he wanted to respond to Gottlieb, Self said: “What did he say?” When told Gottlieb said KU had questionable character that could cost the team, Self said: “I just had to suspend a guy today. I would agree with him. I’m not going to say anything else about that.”

Robinson returns Thomas Robinson, who had surgery just 10 days ago to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee, had six points and six boards in 10 minutes. “Did I look rusty?” Robinson said with a big smile. “It felt great. I’ve only been out about a week and a half, but sitting out that long, for me, was annoying. I couldn’t wait to get out on the court, so it was a great feeling” Self said the doctors told him he should only go 10 minutes. “That’s an amazing dude,” Self said. “Thomas just had surgery 10 days ago. He may have been our best player in practice yesterday. He didn’t have explosion, but was poised. He made easy plays.”

with Pullen scoring most of his 38 off Taylor).” The fact Johnson started was something of a fluke. Self had decided to open at the point with Josh Selby (seven points, three assists, 20 minutes), but those plans switched. “Josh was at shootaround and didn’t have his special orthotic. It was in his other shoe at his mother’s,” Self said. Selby wears an orthotic in his right shoe to help soothe the pain of his stress reaction. “We decided to go live 10 minutes, and he couldn’t go live, so that’s when we decided to go with Eljah. It was a good decision because I thought Elijah played great. “We haven’t had good point-guard defensive play consistently like we should. This was by far the best anybody has done being sound on a guy. I thought he played smart and did a good job defensively.” As far as the future, Self said, “Hopefully this will be a conf idence boost for him moving forward. I will not make any brash statements who will be starter the rest of the season, but the ball is definitely in his (Johnson’s) court. He has a chance to be if he continues to perform like that.” He was more than happy to praise Johnson on a night the Jayhawks improved to 26-2 overall and 11-2 in the league. “Look at how Elijah stepped up. You talk about making the most of an opportunity,” Self said. “I’m hoping he can bottle that. He’s not always going to make shots, but that was the best defense without gambling that anybody has played on the other team’s point guard in a long time.

KANSAS GUARD TYREL REED (14) CHASES DOWN A POSSESSION with Oklahoma State guard Roger Franklin (32) during the first half. “I think he (Johnson) is a little hesitant. He plays not to screw up. He has a tendency to get in his own way sometimes. He’s been good, though. Even at K-State when he got the technical for screaming after his dunk, he was by far the best perimeter player in that game. Making shots covers up a lot of ills, but I thought he was good, even if the ball didn’t go in the hole tonight.” Morris exploded for 17 points the first half off 6-of-9 shooting (2-for-3 from three) as hot-shooting KU led, 52-28, at halftime. He was the only Jayhawk in double figures in the initial half, though five players had

five or more points, including Robinson, who just 10 days after surgery to repair a torn meniscus had six points and three boards in seven minutes.

Oklahoma State coach Travis Ford wasn’t blaming his defense for Kansas University’s 92-point effort Monday night. “We didn’t do bad, but (the Jayhawks) played as well as I’ve seen them play,” Ford said following KU’s 92-65 victory. “They really, really shot the basketball. Really shot it. And I’ve seen them shoot well, but I don’t know about to that extent.” KU made 54.4 percent of its shots and 43.5 percent of its threes. “When they shoot the ball like that, I don’t see how anybody can beat them,” Ford said. “Too many weapons. Too many weapons. They’re just really, really good. Really good.” That included Marcus and Markieff Morris, who com-

bined for 42 points on 15-for23 shooting against the Cowboys. Ford said the brothers were two of the toughest players OSU had faced all year because of their versatility. “Every time they shot, you think, ‘Well, he’s not going to make this one, surely,’” Ford said, “then they just kept making them.” OSU forward Marshall Moses said he was impressed with the twins’ defense. “They can guard, both of them,” Moses said. “I didn’t even know a lot of times which one was guarding me, whether it was Marcus or Markieff. Kansas as a whole was a really good defensive team.” KU’s 92 points were the most allowed by OSU this season. The Jayhawks’ 52 first-half points were 10 more than the Cowboys’ previous

high allowed this year (against Oklahoma). “They’re just as good an offensive team that I’ve seen in a very, very long time,” Ford said. Moses agreed. “If you make a mistake, man, they make you pay,” Moses said. “If you leave them open, they make it. They’re a really efficient team. That’s the best word I can use to describe them.” Ford didn’t hesitate when asked if KU should be in the discussion for top team in the country. “I don’t think there’s any question, you can definitely talk about them being one of the best teams easily. Easily,” Ford said. “You don’t have to be any genius to figure that one out. They’re as good as advertised.” — KUsports.com online editor Jesse Newell can be reached at 832-6357

48 He fled Sodom

Help! My wife is addicted to ‘Farmville’ Annie’s Mailbox

Marcy Sugar and Kathy Mitchell anniesmailbox@creators.com

fectly entitled, I find my inbox filled with petty requests and busywork from the boss. I rarely get such requests otherwise, and it makes me think he somehow feels I am slacking off because I am not there. I am hotly offended by this behavior and would like to find an amicable but firm way to end it without permanently damaging our office relationship. Any thoughts? — Seething in St. Louis

Dear Fed Up: These online Dear Seething: Your boss, games encourage constant in his inappropriate, controlparticipation, and many pro- ling way, is telling you that he vide virtual social communities. Your wife fears that if she stops playing for an extended period, she will lose out. She doesn’t realize that she is already losing out — with you. Like any addiction, your wife may need professional help to stop. In the meantime, insist that she shut off the computer at a specified time each day. Plan dates that will interest her enough to get out of the house. She needs to get back into the real world.

Some programming is so boring, derivative, predictable and trite that my mind tends to wander, and thoughts erupt rather sporadically, loosely inspired by the series under consideration. Pardon the non sequiturs. Money is what we talk about when we have nothing else on our minds. In a culture defined by shopping, only those with money matter. If there is anything worse than laughing at the poor, it is rendering them invisible. Six new extroverts share their time in the sun on “The Real Housewives of Miami” (9 p.m., Bravo). This cast includes a self-described “Cuban Barbie,” a so-called “Brazilian bombshell,” a PR powerhouse, a politically connected fundraiser and the ex-wife of one NBA star and the current wife of another. For all of their self-involvement, these women have to know that fans of this show could just as easily skip across the dial to a “Hoarders” marathon. Hurricane season cannot come fast enough. ● There are few things more difficult than plumbing the emotional depths of a cultural icon. “Independent Lens” (9 p.m., PBS, check local listings) presents “William S. Burroughs: A Man Within.” As “Man” makes clear, “Beat” writer Burroughs was a rebel on many levels. He was openly gay when it was socially inconceivable, physically dangerous and legally problematic to admit that in public. He was also brazenly up front about his unorthodox attitudes and drug use. His novel “The Naked Lunch” is one of the last pieces of major literature to be officially banned by the U.S. government. The whiff of the notorious made Burroughs’ works a cultural touchstone. Many popular artists and bands from Soft Machine to Steely Dan took their names from Burroughs’ works. “Man” argues that despite Burroughs’ role as a rebel and hipster icon, he was very much a victim, if not a prisoner, of the social and sexual attitudes of his time. Interviewed here are former friends and lovers and a who’s who of artists and admirers from Laurie Anderson to Patti Smith and John Waters. Actor Peter Weller (“RoboCop,” “Naked Lunch”) narrates, and Sonic Youth provides the soundtrack. ● “American Treasures” (9 p.m., Discovery) takes a page or two from “Antiques Roadshow” and “History Detectives,” celebrating interesting artifacts and providing some stories and historical context to every item discovered. Along the way, hosts Dr. Jason De Leon and Dr. Kirk French look at a trumpet that may have belonged to Louis Armstrong, Al Capone’s papers and a steam whistle some claim was salvaged from Pearl Harbor.

Tonight’s other highlights ● A lesson about underage drinking on “Glee” (7 p.m., Fox). ● Violence erupts at a convenience store on “NCIS: Los Angeles” (8 p.m., CBS). ● Amy Sedaris guest stars on “Raising Hope” (8 p.m., Fox). ● Joan returns to New York on “Joan and Melissa: Joan Knows Best?” (8 p.m., WE). ● Kurt needs a good lawyer on “The Good Wife” (9 p.m., CBS).

Dear Annie: I have been married to “Brook” for more than 20 years, and we have a loving relationship. However, lately I am lonely because my wife is addicted to the Facebook game “Farmville.” We used to spend our evenings together. Now she spends her time online. When I ask her to join me in watching what used to be a favorite TV show, she says, “Just a minute,” and if I’m lucky, she’ll show up an hour later. I’ve tried using my computer skills to clandestinely monitor, limit or block access to these websites. But each time, she called our Internet provider’s tech support and reset everything. I’ve tried gently chiding her that all the so-called “friends” she has on these games are only monopolizing her time, but she shrugs this off and insists she doesn’t spend that much time online. She is lying to herself. I’ve tracked it. In a single day, she spent eight hours on this site. I’ve caught her online at 3 a.m. Our house is a disaster. I do a lot of housework, but Brook is distracted when she tries to “help” and takes a lot of breaks — which means she’s online again. How can I get her to spend more time with me? — Fed Up with a Farmville Fanatic
