Senate advances bill to double K-10 fines

Governor’s plan would exclude Dems By Scott Rothschild

By Scott Rothschild

TOPEKA — Gov. Sam Brownback wants a Senate redistricting plan that would exclude two Democratic incumbents, including his general election opponent, from their current districts. Brownback’s chief of staff, David Kensinger, told the Senate Reapportionment Committee on Wednesday that Leavenworth County deserves to be one Senate district. “This is a data-driven process,” Kensinger said. Leavenworth County has a population of 76,227, which is more than the ideal Senate district size of 70,986. Of the 10 largest counties, Kensinger said, only Leavenworth isn’t selfcontained in one Senate district

TOPEKA — Hoping to grab the attention of drivers on Kansas Highway 10, the state Senate on Wednesday advanced legislation that would double fines on the roadway between Lawrence and Johnson County. “The point is not to fine people. The point is to save lives,” said state Sen. Tom Holland, DBaldwin City, who has pushed for the legislation on behalf of the family of Cainan Shutt, a 5-year-old Eudora boy who was killed in an accident last year on K-10. Senate Bill 342 was forwarded on a voice vote. A final vote is expected today. If approved, it



or the predominant county of one Senate district. And he said neither state senator representing Leavenworth County lives in Leavenworth County. Currently, Leavenworth County is represented by Sens. Tom Holland, D-Baldwin City, and Kelly Kultala, D-Kansas City. Brownback, a Republican, defeated Holland in the gubernatorial race.

will then head to the House for consideration. Under the measure, traffic fines would double along K-10 and another heavily Cainan used road: U.S. Highway 54 in Wichita. The Kansas Department of Transportation would add signage alerting drivers that they were in a safety corridor and the increased fines. Cainan’s family and Eudora officials have asked legislators to approve the bill. Last April, a car driven by Please see K-10, page 2A

Federal authorities who investigated allegations that two suspended Lawrence police officers had a role in dismissing speeding tickets in exchange for Kansas University basketball tickets declined to pursue criminal charges. And Lawrence Police Chief Tarik Khatib and C i t y Manager David Corliss said the internal investigation involves a violation of the city’s gratuity policy. Although city officials have not publicly released all the facts of the investigation, Laura Routh, a frequent police department critic, said the incident appeared to be more serious and referred to it as “graft and corruption.” Mary Kreiner Ramirez, a Washburn University law professor, said it’s hard to tell without knowing specific facts about how the ticket fixing worked but there are likely many reasons why federal authorities decided not to pursue criminal charges of either bribery or gratuity, which is a lesser offense. “Frankly I don’t know that it necessarily falls under one and not the other,” said Ramirez, a former federal prosecutor. “It depends on how the facts fall.” Khatib and Corliss have Please see TICKETS, page 6A

Man who molested 5-year-old not deemed a sexual predator By George Diepenbrock

A Douglas County judge has ordered a 54-year-old man who has served his time for molesting a Lawrence girl in the 1990s to be released instead of kept in state custody for sex-offender treatment. District Judge Michael Malone made the ruling Wednesday morning in a bench trial of Christopher J. Saemisch. Prosecutors were asking the judge to find Saemisch as a “sexually violent predator” because he was likely to commit another offense if released. But Malone ruled that pros-

a determination whether this person should be allowed on our streets or in our neighborhood,” Branson said. “In this case, the judge determined that there was insufficient evidence to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Mr. Saemisch would re-offend. We have to accept his decision.” Saemisch was convicted in 1999 on one count of aggravated indecent liberties with a child, a 5-year-old girl, who was also a subject in dozens of pornographic videotapes he possessed. He was sentenced to 15 years in prison and also spent time in federal prison.

Griffy, who hugged Saemisch in court after the ruling, said his client had worked to overcome his issues while in custody and had made progress at controlling himself. Griffy said after Malone’s ruling that Saemisch had served his time for the crimes and also sought treatment while in custody. “I hope that Christopher’s behavior substantiates the court’s decision,” Griffy said. Malone heard evidence over two days in the trial earlier this month. — Reporter George Diepenbrock can be reached at 832-7144. Follow him at

KENNETH PAXTON ZABEL October 3, 1937 – February 21, 2012 With thanksgiving in our hearts for a life-well lived, the family of Kenneth Paxton Zabel announces his passing. Ken died February 21, 2012 at Brandon Woods of Alvamar. He leaves behind a loving family with lasting memories of a husband, father, brother, grandfather, uncle and friend. Ken was born October 3, 1937, on a farm near Wetmore, Kansas, the first of three children to Mary (League) Zabel and Kenneth Zabel George Zabel. He graduated Wetmore High School in 1956, where he played on the varsity basketball team. Ken then moved to Lawrence to attend The University of Kansas where he met his bride, Cheryl (Davis) Zabel. They were married June 18, 1960, in Independence, Missouri. Cheryl survives of the home. Ken graduated from the University of Kansas in 1961 with a degree in English, and then earned his Medical Degree, also from the University of Kansas, in 1965. He completed his medical internship and residency in Internal Medicine at the University of Kansas Medical Center in 1969 and began his medical practice in Pittsburg, Kansas. Ken went on to practice medicine in Pittsburg for 22 years, until his retirement in 1991. While in Pittsburg, Ken and Cheryl were extremely active in a variety of community and civic organizations and very active in their church, where Ken served in the priesthood. While managing a very busy medical practice, Ken also served on the Pittsburg Area Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, served as team physician for various Pittsburg State University athletic teams and coached his children’s sports teams.

24-year-old Ryan Pittman crossed from the eastbound to westbound lanes on K-10 near Eudora and struck a minivan in which Cainan was riding. Both Pittman and Cainan died. A toxicology report indicated that Pittman tested positive for a therapeutic level of methadone, an elevated level of tramadol and the active components of marijuana. The accident spurred KDOT to move forward with a plan to install cable-median barriers this summer. But supporters of the bill say more can be done to increase safety. Holland said K-10 is deceptively dangerous because it is such a good road that drivers start speeding without realizing it. State Sen. Les Donovan, R-WichWe have ita, said the same people dying problem out there plagues 54 in that don’t Wichita. need to.” “ W e have peo- — State Sen. Les ple dying out there Donovan, R-Wichita that don’t need to,” Donovan said. But the bill came under some criticism. State Sen. Rob Olson, R-Olathe, said he saw the bill “more as revenue enhancement for law enforcement” and that it wouldn’t have prevented the kind of accident that killed Cainan. Olson said lowering the speed limit or setting up median barriers would be more effective. “I don’t really see this as a solution. If we want to lower the speed limit, let’s have that debate,” he said. As the bill came out of committee, it would have eliminated the so-called buffer zone for tickets given in the safety corridor. The buffer zone allows speeders to avoid having their tickets reported to their insurer if they aren’t going more than 10 mph over the speed limit. An amendment, however, by state Sen. Mike Peterson, R-Wichita, on Wednesday put the buffer zone back in, but at 5 mph over the speed limit in a safety corridor. Peterson also tried to amend the bill so that the safety corridor program would expire in three years unless the Legislature renewed it. But that amendment failed. 609 N.H. (offices) • 645 N.H.

GOP tax plan hits poorest Kansans

Squeaky clean

BRIEFLY House advances child abuse bill TOPEKA — The Kansas House has given first-round approval to a bill amending state law on mandatory reporting of alleged child abuse. Supporters said Wednesday the changes were in direct response to the allegations of child sex abuse at Penn State University involving former football defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky. The bill expands the list of individuals required to report allegations of child abuse to authorities for investigation. It also strengthens the penalty for failure to report cases of suspected sexual abuse. It also would remove the defense that a person believed someone else was going to file the report, unless a report had actually been made, or that a person did not make a report for fear of reprisal or any other consequence.

TOPEKA — Revenue estimates show that House Republicans’ income tax plan would hike tax rates only for the lowest income earners in Kansas, which GOP leaders said Wednesday was an unforeseen consequence of a newly added amendment. The estimates show that the plan would cost Kansas more than $850 million over the next five years, possibly creating budget issues in future years. The O’Neal Associated Press exclusively obtained the figures from a legislative source who wasn’t authorized to publicly release the information. House Speaker Mike O’Neal acknowledged that the amended plan, which was changed and approved Monday by the House Taxation Committee, hit the lowest tax bracket hardest. The tax increase was a result of changes made to the state’s earned income tax credit for low-income workers. But he said he and other

Resident faces 4 sex-crime charges Douglas County prosecutors have filed four sex-crime charges against a 45-year-old Lawrence man whom police arrested Tuesday night. According to court records, prosecutors filed three counts of aggravated indecent liberties with a child and one count of indecent liberties with a child. According to the charges, he’s accused of engaging in lewd fondling or touching of two children, now ages 12 and 14, during a period from May 2010 to Feb. 8 of this year. Kim Murphree, a Lawrence police spokeswoman, said Wednesday morning the report in the case was not yet available. A judge Wednesday set the man’s bond at $75,000 and ordered him to have no contact with the victims as a bond condition. The Journal-World generally does not identify sex-crime suspects unless they are convicted.

Marking the start of Lent


Why do the four middle schools each have their own unique honor roll systems instead of a uniform honor roll system applicable to all of them?


Kim Bodensteiner, Lawrence school district’s chief academic officer, provided this information: “For many years, each junior high school established its own criteria for honor roll. During our planning last spring, the middle school principals agreed that this site-based practice would continue as we moved to the middle school configuration.”

Scholarship program for wounded vets in flux By Andy Hyland

As the United States Army is reviewing whether to continue a program that sends wounded veterans to Kansas University for graduate study, a KU office is looking to support those veterans and their families with a new scholarship. KU’s Wounded Warrior Initiative is a partnership between KU and the U.S. Army. The Army provides funds for wounded soldiers to pursue master’s and doctoral studies in areas that support research and academic programs. Michael Denning, a retired Marine colonel and director of KU’s Office of Professional Military Graduate Education, said the Army, which handles much of the administration and selection of the soldiers who participate in the program, has placed the program under review and hasn’t recruited new soldiers yet for the 2013 school year. The soldiers receive tuition and fees and an additional stipend from the U.S. Army and must apply for admission to KU. U.S. Army Major Michael Flatoff is a spokes-

man for the U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command, which oversees the Wounded Warrior Education Initiative. “Right now, the program is undergoing evaluation to see if it meets the original intent,” Flatoff said. “It was a pilot program.” Flatoff said he didn’t have a timeline for when the review could be completed. After completing their degrees, the soldiers commit to take a position in the Army for six years. Active-duty soldiers remain in the Army, and those who have retired because of their injuries take civilian positions, often as instructors. The program was launched in 2008, and, since then, 12 soldiers have graduated from the program. Many are teaching at Fort Leavenworth’s Command and General Staff College, but others are serving at Fort Sam Houston, Fort Lee and the Pentagon. Any decisions on the program’s future won’t affect the soldiers already at KU and enrolled in the program, Denning said. But his office is helping coordinate a new scholar-

ship fund that wounded warriors and their spouses or caregivers would be eligible to receive. The office has raised about $30,000 so far, partially through the help of a new veterans’ alumni organization at KU. A fund has been set up through the KU Endowment Association, and the office is hoping to raise $400,000. Kansas Athletics is donating a portion of the proceeds from a KansasMissouri “Operation: Victory” T-shirt to the fund. “We would like to be able to offer a renewable scholarship,” with a full ride and a stipend that would provide a salary similar to what a graduate teaching assistant would receive, said Randy Masten, program assistant in the military graduate education office. The scholarship would be available for undergraduate or graduate study, Masten said. “Particularly when you’re dealing with wounded warriors, they’re dealing with things that other students may not have to deal with,” he said. — Higher education reporter Andy Hyland can be reached at 832-6388.

Man pleads to misdemeanors in consensual choking case By George Diepenbrock

Marissa Stromgren, sales, Lawrence “I figured there’s nothing to lose in trying. I’ve never been shy, always outspoken. I don’t mind being filmed.”

Blake Bryant, Washburn student, Topeka “I think in the format, you have to be open to the possibility it’ll work out, and the possibility it may not.”

A 19-year-old Perry man pleaded no contest Wednesday to two misdemeanor charges after he was accused of choking his former girlfriend dozens of times last year. Trevor J. Benedict entered the pleas to child endangerment after prosecutors reduced two original counts of felony aggravated child endangerment. The 17-year-old girl testified earlier this month at a preliminary hearing that she consented to having Benedict choke her during the several months they dated beginning in December 2010 and that she lost consciousness during one of the incidents at her Douglas County residence. A Douglas County Sheriff’s deputy also testified that investigators believed she became uncon-

scious one other time last August outside her job at a Lawrence restaurant. After that hearing, defense attorney Timothy Riling had asked for the charges to be dismissed and argued the choking acts were consensual, and she reported she was not injured. But District Judge Sally Pokorny had said there was evidence Benedict still put the girl’s life in danger and the girl was harmed because prosecutors had evidence he also cut her with a razor blade. Benedict, who was a Kansas University student at the time of his arrest last August, also faces an aggravated child endangerment case as a juvenile because prosecutors allege some of the incidents occurred before he turned 18. Amy McGowan, a chief assistant district attorney, said prosecutors would agree to dismiss the juvenile case after his sentenc-

• Douglas County prosecutors charged a 36-year-old Kansas City, Mo., man with aggravated assault after an incident early Tuesday in downtown Lawrence. Lawrence police arrested Corey M. Martin about 5:20 a.m. in the 1000 block of Massachusetts Street after he was accused of speaking aggressively to a woman in the area and holding a large tree branch in a threatening manner, police said. The woman told police she was approached by the man as she was walking to work. When a vehicle passed by, she saw the man turn his head, and she ran to the building where she was

employed to call police. His bond was set at $3,500, and his next court appearance is scheduled for March 1.

ing. He also must obtain a mental health evaluation. He faces a maximum two years in jail in the adult case, but attorneys are expected to argue at sentencing over whether he will serve one or two years on probation. Riling and McGowan said Benedict had agreed to submit to GPS monitoring while he’s awaiting sentencing. He had been held on $65,000 bond because he was accused of seeing the girl while the charges were pending. But Pokorny agreed to release Benedict on his own recognizance if he uses the monitoring device and stays more than a halfmile from the girl’s residence in Douglas County. Pokorny is scheduled to sentence Benedict on March 30. — Reporter George Diepenbrock can be reached at 832-7144. Follow him at

GOP leaders were looking at making changes before the bill reaches the full House for debate. “That would be my preference. Obviously, the committee accepted an amendment that had that effect, and we want to evaluate that to see if that needs to be changed,” said O’Neal, a Hutchinson Republican House GOP leaders’ original plan would have given all taxpayers a break and was an alternative to Republican Gov. Sam Brownback’s income tax proposal. But now, under both the amended House GOP plan and the governor’s proposal, the only group of taxpayers that would see a collective increase in their income taxes would be those with adjusted gross incomes of $25,000 or less. The House GOP plan is less aggressive in cutting tax rates and helping businesses than Brownback’s plan, and it scales back a tax credit for poor workers, rather than eliminate it, as the governor proposed. Also, the plan keeps other income tax credits and deductions that Brownback said he would eliminate. House Minority Leader Paul Davis said he hopes O’Neal and GOP leaders will rethink the bill’s impact. “I hope that is their intent,” said Davis, a Lawrence Democrat. “But we have to look at the numbers, and if they show there is a tax increase on the poorest Kansans, it is something that I don’t believe House members should support under any circumstances.” The committee’s plan also reduces the state’s


this is the perfect time to try it out and have an adventure like this,” she said. That one man who turned up, Washburn University student Blake Bryant, stumbled onto the online application when checking on his application for CBS’ “The Amazing Race.” He didn’t get on there, but no matter. “I’m open to new opportunities,” he said. He’s looking for someone who’s “extremely confident and passionate in who they are” and who can “keep up with me but also keep me in check.” Whether he’ll be able to search for that person on network television remains to be seen. If the Lawrence applicants are selected for further rounds in the application process, they’ll be contacted sometime this spring. Meanwhile, there’s another chance to mingle with producers and applicants from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday at the Well, 7421 Broadway St., in Kansas City, Mo. And they’re still accepting applications online. The show won’t start production for several months — how long exactly depends on whom producers discover in the casting process — but when

sales tax to 5.7 percent from 6.3 percent in July 2013, a promise lawmakers made in 2010 when they boosted the rate to help balance the state budget. Brownback had proposed keeping the rate at 6.3 percent to help offset other tax cuts. The committee’s chairman, Rep. Richard Carlson, said dropping the sales tax would help working class families. Acknowledging the effect of his committee’s amendment on income taxes, the St. Marys Republican said he and his fellow Republicans were considering trying to rewrite the plan so it more closely resembles what GOP leaders introduced. But, he said lawmakers should look at all Kansas residents “and take care of working-class families” in the income tax code. Brownback proposed ending the tax credit for poor workers and using the savings to boost spending on services. Internal administration figures showed taxpayers with adjusted gross incomes of $25,000 or less would be the only group seeing a collective income tax increase, worth a total $88 million — or more than 5,100 percent. The House GOP plan modifies that element, cutting the earned income tax credit for poor workers in half. The plan also proposes ending refunds greater than the taxes owed. For example, a worker who’s due a credit of $500 but has a tax liability of $100 would receive a $400 refund. “I just don’t know why the Legislature would want to increase taxes on poor people who’ve probably have been hit hardest in this economic recession to pay for a tax cut for the wealthiest Kansans. It just doesn’t make sense,” Davis said.

it does, it’s set to feature three women who live together and come from different age, experience and social backgrounds. Casting associate Marschell Becton said the show is looking for people who don’t necessarily fit the mold of “reality TV star” or who even really wants to be one. “We’re interested in real Americans who are interested in finding a connection,” she said. The three women will speed-date the men and offer suggestions to each other for a final coupling pick. There’s no flashy engagement at the end, Becton said, and the emphasis is in showing as realistic a dating experience as possible. “It’s about the reality of dating, not the drama of dating,” she said. “We’re just meant to be flies on the wall.” Stromgren agreed that the “fresh” format of “3” appealed to her. “If you can’t rely on other women to give advice on dating,” she said, “who can you trust?” — Reporter Alex Garrison can be reached at 832-7261.

County to move ahead with heritage grants By Christine Metz

Two hours of public debate didn’t sway the Douglas County Commission’s stance on setting aside $350,000 for heritage preservation projects. On Wednesday night, Commission Chairman Mike Gaughan and Commissioner Nancy Thellman didn’t waiver on their support to fund cultural, natural and heritage preservation projects in 2012. And Commissioner Jim Flory stood strong on his belief that the program should be suspended until better economic times. In light of a projected $2.3 million budget shortfall in 2013, Flory asked the commission to reconsider moving forward with the 2012 application process for Heritage Conservation Council grants. The county has already allocated $350,000 in 2012 for heritage preservation. At a time when the county is facing the pos-

sibility of cutting funding to social service agencies and is holding off merit wages for county employees and hiring staff, Flory said suspending the program for two years would save the county $700,000. “I challenge my fellow commissioners COUNTY to ask for the COMMISSION candid opinions of social service agencies, county department heads and county employees whether it is fiscally responsible for us to continue to fund these projects to the detriment of their agencies, to their departments and to their employees,” Flory said. Wednesday’s meeting had plenty of comments from those who said they reaped the benefit from the first round of grants. Among them were representatives from the Black Jack Battlefield

Trust, which received $163,000 to renovate a homestead connected to the land. Preserving sites such as Black Jack Battlefield boosts heritage tourism, which brings in other money to Douglas County, supporters said. “Our heritage is essential. It is the core of who we are to know where we are and who we are. For too many years, we have ignored it,” said Kerry Altenbernd, who is with the trust. “We have ignored our heritage, so we have suffered economically.” Even those whose grant application didn’t receive any funding, such as Douglas County Historical Society Director Steve Nowak, spoke in favor of the program. “It is hard for organizations trying to keep things running at the regular level to achieve the next phase of its vision. This is a grant program that allows that to happen,” Nowak said. But there were plenty

Plans for a new west Lawrence recreation center are taking a twist with talk of the Kansas University athletics department exploring interest in the project. Lawrence Mayor Aron Cromwell confirmed the city is putting on hold plans to sign a contract with Lawrence-based Gould Evans architects to create concept plans and cost estimates for a west side center. That’s because city officials want to allow more time for a private proposal that surfaced last week to develop. Details about


confirmed that other officers were involved in the process of dismissing speeding tickets for an individual who had access to KU basketball tickets. The investigation has indicated those officers may have been asked by a single member of the police department to dismiss those tickets as a favor. It isn’t clear whether those other officers received KU basketball tickets in exchange for the dismissals. The city has declined to provide an estimate of the number of other officers involved or whether other suspensions could be forthcoming. The individual who provided the basketball tickets was a person now in federal prison related to the broader KU ticket scandal in which four athletic department employees and one consultant stole about $2 million worth of basketball and football tickets

Kan. House advances voter citizenship bill TOPEKA — Secretary of State Kris Kobach’s bill to require some potential voters to prove U.S. citizenship ahead of this year’s presidential election received first-round approval Wednesday in the state House, though disagreements surfaced among fellow Republicans. The measure would impose the proof-of-citizenship requirement on June 15, more than six months ahead of schedule and in time for the normal surge of first-time registrations before a presidential contest. Legislators enacted a proof-of-citizenship requirement last year that wouldn’t take effect until Jan. 1, 2013. The House advanced the bill on a voice vote, setting up a final vote today to determine whether the bill goes to the Senate. Kobach, a Republican and

former law professor who helped draft tough laws in Alabama and Arizona designed to crack down on illegal immigration, contends the requirement will keep non-citizens from registering and is part of a larger effort to combat election fraud. Critics note reports of non-citizens voting in Kansas remain rare and say the proof-of-citizenship rule will prevent poor, minority and elderly Kansans from registering. Kobach’s bill had appeared likely to pass the House, where Republicans have a large majority and most share Kobach’s conservative views. But a few GOP legislators joined persistent Democratic critics on Wednesday in wondering whether state officials, election officials and Kansans involved in registration efforts are ready to have the rule in place this year.


Senate Reapportionment Committee, said he enjoyed representing Leavenworth County “and hope to do so in the future.” Kensinger said neither Holland nor Kultala have won majorities in their portions of their districts within Leavenworth County in a general election. “These data ... could support a finding that the residents of Leavenworth County are effectively disenfranchised under the current Senate configuration,” he said. Kensinger’s decision to weigh in on Senate redistricting on behalf of the governor was unprecedented, Hensley said. “I’ve never known of the chief of staff of a governor come in and basically state what his boss wanted to see in a reapportionment,” he said. The committee continued its deliberations and won’t meet again until next week. Legislators are redrawing legislative, congressional and State Board of Education boundaries to accommodate population shifts over the past 10 years.

of others urging the commission to not fund the program. “The county is in dire straights. Spending an additional $350,000, I believe, would be a mistake,” said Edmond Rae, an unemployed engineer. Frank Male said the county should be spending money on basic needs, especially those that help social service agencies such as Bert Nash, Cottonwood and Independence Inc. “Now is not the time to spend the money on the icing on the cake. We have to protect the core,” Male said. In the end, both Thellman and Gaughan said they saw the economic and cultural benefits to funding heritage preservation projects and wanted to see the next round of funding move forward. “Heritage tourism is economic development,” CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1A Thellman said. — Reporter Christine Metz can be reached at 832-6352.

Athletics department showing interest in rec center By Chad Lawhorn


that plan continue to be sketchy, but it is becoming obvious the private parties are thinking on a grander scale than the city. Cromwell confirmed the KU athletics department has been approached about participating in some type of tournament and recreation center. The possibility of including track and field amenities at the site has been raised. No commitments from any party, however, have been given. “The idea of bringing the university, the city and private individuals together is intriguing,” Cromwell said. “But it

is complicated to bring that together, and it takes time.” The city hasn’t yet disclosed who brought the proposal forward to the city. Cromwell, though, said he does expect to give the public more information about who is involved and the basic concepts in the next couple of weeks, after the feasibility of the concept is further explored. In the meantime, Cromwell said city commissioners will wait to consider approving a $55,000 contract with Gould Evans, which would have created concept plans and cost estimates for a new center.

The commission also will wait to approve a $16,500 contract with a Kansas City consulting firm that was to study the feasibility of creating public fundraising campaign for a recreation center project. Cromwell said if this new proposal moves forward, the scope of the project could change significantly and make any plans by Gould Evans obsolete. Cromwell did not have timeline for when the project may come back up for a full City Commission discussion.

from 2005 to 2010. Ramirez said to prove a bribery charge against a public official, prosecutors must convince jurors there was a quid pro quo, such as an individual giving an officer basketball tickets in exchange for a later dismissal of the speeding ticket. “It’s a bit more difficult because you’re talking about intending to influence a particular act in the future. You have to link them together particularly,” she said. But it could get muddier if the facts show the tickets were given to an officer after the speeding citations were already dismissed. That case would likely fall under the federal gratuity statute because it would be harder to prove an officer even knew the basketball tickets would be coming. “It’s a lower standard of proof. You don’t have to prove it actually influenced their decision,” Ramirez said. “With the bribery, you have to show it was intended to influ-

ence their decision.” Sam Walker, an emeritus professor of criminal justice at the University of Nebraska at Omaha, said from seeing news coverage about the Lawrence ticket-fixing case so far it appeared to be more in line with bribery than gratuity. “It’s an integrity issue,” Walker said. “Even though it’s only a speeding offense, and even though it’s only basketball tickets, you just can’t overlook a little thing because the next thing, it will be a big one.” Khatib has said the ticket fixing does not involve dismissing “a ton” of speeding tickets, and it’s not “a widespread, systemic amount of officers.” The city has not identified the two suspended officers, calling the matter a personnel issue. “One of the best ways to address it is to seek to foster a culture that has consequences for inappropriate action,” Corliss said last week. “That’s what we’re doing. Even though there’s not been a crime committed, we are taking serious

action in regards to this.” City officials previously have said their investigation determined that one officer largely orchestrated the ticket fixing, while the other officer on suspension had knowledge of the activity and did not step forward. The city has not yet released a specific time frame for the ticket fixing or said how many speeding tickets were dismissed. Khatib has provided the names of the two suspended officers to Douglas County District Attorney Charles Branson so that prosecutors could determine whether the alleged ethical violations of the two officers are pertinent to pending or past criminal cases. Ramirez, the Washburn law professor, said federal prosecutors could have taken into account other factors when deciding not to pursue charges, including possible internal department consequences for the officers involved.

Kultala was Holland’s lieutenant governor running mate. Holland’s 3rd Senate District includes part of Leavenworth and Douglas counties, and all of Jefferson County. The 5th District, which is represented by Kultala, includes the cities of Leavenworth and Lansing and most of Wyandotte County. Senate Democratic Leader Anthony Hensley, D-Topeka, noted that Brownback and Holland ran against each other last year. Hensley said he was suspicious of the governor’s effort. “It seems to me there may be an underlying motive here,” Hensley said. Kensinger denied there was another motive for proposing the change other than the data. Hensley said Holland and Kultala have done an excellent job of representing Leavenworth County.

Water laws Two bills currently being considered by Kansas legislators would produce only limited benefits for the state’s water supply.


f we are to have a future, we have to have water,” says Gov. Sam Brownback. He definitely has that right! The governor has stacked initiative upon initiative into his first term in office, and water policy changes are part of his ambitious legislative agenda. Two water bills working their way through the process appear especially significant. House Bill 2451 is intended to remove the “use it or lose it” provision attached to groundwater rights and thereby conserve water. It’s touted as protecting, at least to a limited extent, the Ogallala Aquifer, letting rights-holders maintain their rights without forcing them to use the water. Knowledgeable observers, however, point out that until sufficient funding is provided to repurchase water rights and address the consumption patterns affecting the aquifer, little progress can be expected. And given the current attractive prices for irrigated crops, the incentive to retire water rights is low. House Bill 2685 would enable rights holders to create a “reservoir improvement district” so that those who depend upon a reservoir’s capacity would have a way of extending its life; the federal reservoirs and water supply lakes in the state are, unfortunately, filling with sediment and at rates generally faster than projected. That certainly is true at both Clinton and Perry reservoirs. The bill, which some say was written to give Westar Energy more authority over John Redmond reservoir southeast of Emporia, conceivably could help cities, rural water districts and other rightsholders extend the lives of lakes that supply their drinking water. However, it fails to address the real problem related to siltation: lack of land treatment above the lakes. Until the loss of soil from upstream fields is stopped, other efforts are Band-Aids in a losing battle. Short of a major overhaul of Kansas water law, and an attempt to address how the state will fund efforts to protect the quantity and quality of its water, these bills seem to be prudent, although incomplete, efforts that generally could benefit the state’s residents.

GOP still lacks formidable candidate WASHINGTON — The Midwest begins on the western slopes of the Allegheny Mountains, around Rick Santorum’s Pittsburgh, birthplace of the Ohio River, the original highway into the Midwest. Pittsburgh fueled the Whiskey Rebellion of 1794, an early eruption of Western resentment of the overbearing East, which taxed the whiskey that Westerners made from their grain.

George Will

Today’s Republican contest has become a binary choice between two similarly miscast candidates.” Santorum the Midwesterner, after victories in Iowa, Minnesota and Missouri, is waging more of his political capital on the region. Rather than wait for Super Tuesday’s (March 6) congenial calendar featuring five culturally conservative states (Georgia, Tennessee, Virginia, Oklahoma, Idaho), he is contesting Michigan, which votes Tuesday, and Ohio. But instead of keeping his Rust Belt focus on his blue-collar roots and economic program for reviving manufacturing, he has opened multiple fronts in the culture wars. By doing so — questioning much prenatal testing, disdaining Barack Obama’s environmentalism as “phony theology,” calling involvement of even state governments in public education “anachronistic,” reiterating that abortion should be illegal even in cases of rape and incest, explaining the proper purpose of sex (procreation) — Santorum has eclipsed Newt Gingrich, his rival for the support of social conservatives. But in doing so Santorum has made his Catholicism more central and

problematic in this nomination contest than Mitt Romney’s Mormonism has been. The problem is not that the phenomena that trouble Santorum are unserious. The use of prenatal testing for search-and-destroy missions against Down syndrome and other handicapped babies is barbaric. Obama’s stealthy pursuit of a national curriculum for grades K through 12 is ill-advised and illegal. And no domestic problem — not even the unsustainable entitlement state — is more urgent and intractable than that of family disintegration. The entitlement state can be reformed by various known — if currently politically impossible — policy choices. But no one really knows the causes of family disintegration, so it is unclear whether those causes can be combated by government measures. We do know the social pathologies flowing from the fact that now more than 50 percent of all babies born to women under age 30 are born to unmarried mothers. These pathologies, related to a constantly renewed cohort of adolescent males without fathers at home, include disorderly neighborhoods, schools that cannot teach, mass incarceration and the intergenerational transmission of poverty. We do not

know how to address this with government policies, even though the nation has worried about it for almost 50 years. In 1965, Daniel Patrick Moynihan, then in President Lyndon Johnson’s administration, published his report on the black family’s “crisis,” which was that 24 percent of black children were then born to unmarried women. Today, 73 percent are. Fortyone percent of all children are now born to unmarried women. Moynihan, a social scientist in politics, proposed various family policies, but also noted this: When the medieval invention of distilling was combined with Britain’s 18th-century surplus of grain, the result was cheap gin — and appalling pockets of social regression. The most effective response to which was not this or that government policy, it was John Wesley — Methodism. Which brings us back to Santorum. He is an engagingly happy warrior, except when he is not. Then he is an angry prophet of a dystopian future in which, he has warned, people will be “holed up in their homes afraid to go outside at night.” He has the right forebodings but may have the wrong profession. Presidential candidates do not thrive

Share the reports To the editor: I urge the city to release the police investigation of the ticket-fixing scandal. It would clear the air to assure the public that there is not a cover-up. Secrecy makes all officers suspect, including the 99 percent who obey the law. Treating the incidents as only violations of departmental gratuity policy contradicts media reports. It sure looks like bribes to me. I call it a bribe when police accept payments in exchange for not doing their duty. They were bribed either not to issue tickets or to cancel tickets already issued. Bribery often involves other crimes. Did other officers assist to “fix” the tickets? Did members of the force commit fraud or perjury in “fixing” the tickets? Were they part of a conspiracy? The payments — KU athletic tickets — were stolen; did anyone who benefited know they were receiving stolen goods? Did the bribe recipients evade income taxes by not reporting bribes or “gratuities” as income? Release of the investigation could show it was thorough and that the department knows the difference between gratuities and bribes. Or not. Public officials — including police officers — no less than private citizens should obey the law or face consequences. When the police commit crimes or when they apply the law for personal gain or prejudice, they threaten the rule of law. The public has a right to know when police break the law; hiding behind the screen of personnel matters undermines public confidence in the police. Lawrence police and citizens deserve better. David M. Katzman, Lawrence

School gratitude To the editor: Times are tough for school programs, particularly in the arts. Too often we hear from the business community “we can’t help now” or “maybe next year” or just “sorry.” This is why I felt compelled to write about the Srisutiva family, owners of Thai Siam. For two years in a row now, they have donated the food for Free State High School’s dinner the-

as apostles of social regeneration; they are expected to be as sunny as Ronald Reagan was as he assured voters that they were as virtuous as their government was tedious. Today’s Republican contest has become a binary choice between two similarly miscast candidates. Romney cannot convince voters he understands the difference between business and politics, between being a CEO and the president. To bring economic rationality to an underperforming economic entity requires understanding a market segment. To bring confidence to a discouraged nation requires celebrating its history and sketching an inspiring destiny this history has presaged. Romney is right about the futility of many current policies, but being offended by irrationality is insufficient. Santorum is right to be alarmed by many cultural trends, but implies that religion must be the nexus between politics and cultural reform. Romney is not attracting people who want rationality leavened by romance. Santorum is repelling people who want politics unmediated by theology. Neither Romney nor Santorum looks like a formidable candidate for November. — George Will is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.

The strong survive To the editor: What in the wild, wild world of Lawrence, Kansas, is going on here? At my alma mater (Kansas University), we have gone through a ticket scandal with trusted employees in jail. We’ve got people there that don’t have a clue. Why do we have suspended police officers with no names? Why does our capable city manager not head this controversy off? Where are the checks and balances? Come on, City Hall. As far as the future of Lawrence goes, hopefully it will go forward. We don’t need to be a western Kansas town, many of which are dying. We are Lawrence. We are the future. We’ve got trash issues, wetlands, downtown development, greening issues, potholes, elementary school closings, etc. We can handle it. Only the strong survive. Dennis Barritt, Lawrence

trash. The city policy at the time was “that we’ll pick it up wherever they set it,” said City Manager Buford Watson. Having all Lawrence residents set their semi-weekly refuse on the curb was expected to save the city an estimated $60,000 annually.


From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Feb. 23, 1912: YEARS “Governor Stubbs AGO speaking at the IN 1912 Y.M.C.A. banquet last night declared that one of the most needed reforms in the affairs of Kansas today is a change of the system of the public schools that would be more practical and do away with the present day waste in this department.... ‘The idea of running our 500,000 school children all through one mill. Some of them are to become farmers, some mechanics, some doctors, some will be merchants, some professors, and yet in our public schools each of these is sent through the same mill, given the same training. ... Take a large per cent of the girls who spend four years in high school, after which they retire into the home of some business man, mechanic or man in other occupation. What good does her hard study of Latin, Greek, Algebra, Astronomy and like studies do her?’”

To the editor: Regarding your recent article on the use of pipeline embolization devices to treat cerebral aneurysms, kudos to the Kansas University Medical Center for having performed the first one in the state of Kansas. Regarding the statement about the metropolitan area, however, I would like to point out that St. Luke’s on the Plaza has been performing this treatment since at least 2003 when my initial embolization was done, and mine was certainly not the first such procedure performed there. St. Luke’s neurological service deserve a great deal of credit — Compiled by Sarah St. John for their work pursuing this procedure through the years. Thank you for getting the word out Read more Old Home Town at about this treatment option. Mary Elliott, history/old_home_town. Lawrence

Poacher suspected in death of snowy owl GREAT BEND — Wildlife officials suspect a poacher intentionally shot a snowy owl last week at the Cheyenne Bottoms Wildlife Area near Great Bend. The owl was found last Thursday by Dan Witt, a Hoisington physician and wildlife photographer, about a half-mile from the Kansas Wetlands Education Center. The owl was taken to the Great Bend Raptor Center at the Brit Spaugh Zoo, where a veterinarian tried to save it by amputating a severely injured wing. But the owl died the next day. “No hunter has done this,” Brian Hanzlick, lead investigator and game warden for the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism, said Tuesday. “This was someone who literally violated the law. They knew exactly what they were shooting at when they pulled the trigger.” Hanzlick said authorities already have leads on the poacher’s identity. Snowy owls are not an endangered species, but shooting them violates the Migratory Bird Treaty Act. A conviction carries a fine of up to $15,000, up to six months in jail or both.

KU 66, TEXAS A&M 58

Awfully close Kansas barely holds on By Gary Bedore

COLLEGE STATION, TEXAS — Kansas University’s basketball team put itself in position to claim at least a tie for its eighth-straight Big 12 championship Saturday at home against Missouri. So why wasn’t ninth-year coach Bill Self smiling after Wednesday’s 66-58 victory over Texas A&M in Reed Arena? Let him disclose the many reasons: “We played awful down the stretch. Basically, to put them in position to win that game is beyond belief,” Self said after a game-high lead of 21 points (47-26 with 13:30 to play) dipped to four points with 2:08 left (57-53), with 1:30 left (60-56) and with :40.2 left (62-58). “We were making basketball plays experienced guys should never make. When you make plays you know nobody wants you to make and it doesn’t bother you, that’s a bad sign for a basketball team. It didn’t seem it bothered us much tonight. Bad shots shouldn’t lead to bad attitudes,” Self grumbled. Self was dismayed with the performance of national Player of the Year candidate Thomas Robinson, who scored 10 points off 3-of-10 shooting with 13 rebounds in 28 minutes. Robinson picked up a technical foul for shoving A&M’s Ray Turner with 40.2 seconds left with KU up, 62-56. It happened to be Robinson’s fifth foul, meaning he was

Victory should provide tourney lesson COLLEGE STATION, TEXAS — While winning a basketball game Wednesday night in Reed Arena, the fourthranked Kansas University basketball team also managed to diagram a blueprint for how to make an early exit in the NCAA Tournament. Get a big lead and then turn inattentive, lose the ball, get into foul trouble,

lose your temper and in the same play remove the best player on the team. Next thing you know, the clock expires, the game is lost, and the tournament is just a television show that hurts too much to watch. Kansas defeated Texas A&M, 66-58, and in doing so should have defeated any notion that the Jayhawks have enough talent to stray

from playing with more intensity and smarts than the other guys and still cruise to victory. Kansas is in contention for a No. 1 seed more because of its extraordinary will than skill, and when the former falters, the lack of depth of the latter gets exposed in a hurry, especially when it can’t shoot straight. In less than a five minutes

of game clock, an 18-point lead became a four-point lead. Compounding matters, Kansas, which led by as many as 21 points, would have had to play an overtime period without Thomas Robinson because he couldn’t check his temper and shoved his way into a Please see KEEGAN, page 4B

Firebirds’ Patterson ready for rematch By Benton Smith

FREE STATE SENIOR GABE PATTERSON (25) GRABS a rebound for Free State against Topeka Seaman in this photo from Dec. 6, 2011, at FSHS.

Gabe Patterson remembers it like it was yesterday. The day was Dec. 16, 2011. Patterson, Free State High’s senior forward, was warming up for his first City Showdown. Patterson had worked his way up through the program ranks — playing on the sophomore team, then the junior varsity — and finally was about to get his chance on the varsity stage to face the Firebirds’ rival, Lawrence High. He had been experiencing soreness in his right hip, but

FSHS coach Chuck Law suddenly had a wrench thrown in his game plan. Patterson was the only Firebird remotely close in stature to Lawrence’s 6-foot-7 sophomore center, Bryce Montes de Oca. “Obviously, we had big designs for him,” Law said. “That was a blow.” Still, the coach knew sitting on the bench was more of a burden on Patterson than it was for anybody else, and he credited the rest of the team — especially seniors Brett Frantz, Cameron Dabney, Tyler Self and Please see PATTERSON, page 3B

Donald eliminated at Match Play MARANA, ARIZ. — Luke Donald has become only the third No. 1 seed to lose in the opening round of the Match Play Championship. Ernie Els built an early lead and never let go in a 5-and-4 victory over the top-ranked player in the world. Tiger Woods barely made it through at Dove Mountain. He trailed Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano by one hole until winning the 15th and 16th, then holed an eight-foot par putt on the 18th to avoid going into extra holes.


Royals, relievers agree on contracts SURPRISE, ARIZ. — The Royals have agreed to terms with relievers Louis Coleman and Greg Holland for this season, leaving five unsigned players on the 40man roster. Holland will make $497,150, and Coleman will make $491,750. Both of them had fewer than three years of service time, which meant the Royals could set their contracts.

Thunder 119, Celtics 104 OKLAHOMA CITY — Russell Westbrook scored 31 points, Kevin Durant added 28, and Oklahoma City beat Boston for its 11th-straight win at home. Kevin Garnett’s return after a two-game absence wasn’t enough to lift the Celtics, who were still without point guard Rajon Rondo as he served the second game of a two-game suspension. Paul Pierce and Garnett scored 23 points apiece to lead Boston, and Garnett also had 13 rebounds after missing the previous two games for personal reasons. Kings 115, Wizards 107 WASHINGTON — Marcus Thornton scored 18 of his 22 points in the second half, and rookie Isaiah Thomas had 16 of his 18 after halftime.

Knighton — for helping Free State go to overtime in the rivalry game before falling, 75-68. “They weren’t going to not come out and play,” Law said, “in part out of respect for the fact that (Patterson) couldn’t play.” Relegated to a frustrated spectator, Patterson admired what he saw in that game from his teammates. “They played amazing. Brett (24 points, seven rebounds) and Cameron (23 points, four rebounds), they showed out,” Patterson said. “I think if (Free State) would’ve offensive-rebounded more and kept (LHS) off the glass, they would’ve won the game.” Of course, there was another big if for the Firebirds (7-12) regarding that game. “I knew I would’ve made a difference,” Patterson said, “if I got to play.” As a strong inside presence for FSHS, Patterson certainly has made an impact on the court since returning to the floor (he missed just two games, then steadily worked his way back into a starting role). Patterson averages nine points and seven boards on the season, but has picked up his play in the last seven games, averaging 12 points and eight boards. The Firebirds are 4-3 in that stretch, with two losses coming against top-10 teams (Leavenworth and Olathe South) on the road and the other coming in overtime on Tuesday at Shawnee Mission East. Said Law: “There’s no doubt that we’re a much better team when he plays.”

There’s no doubt that we’re a much better team when (Patterson) plays.” — Free State boys basketball coach Chuck Law on senior forward Gabe Patterson

Jayhawks’ Johnson foils Aggies’ plan By Jesse Newell

COLLEGE STATION, TEXAS — Billy Kennedy gambled and lost. The Texas A&M coach figured putting more defensive attention on Kansas University forward Thomas Robinson would give his team the best chance against the Jayhawks. As a result, KU guard Elijah Johnson broke free for 21 points on 7-for-11 shooting in the Jayhawks’ 66-58 victory Wednesday night.

“That’s the mark of a good team that’s got talented players. Elijah Johnson’s a good player,” Kennedy said. “We took a chance to try to take Robinson away and leave (Johnson) open. He was struggling from the three the last five games — really was struggling. He’s a good player, and he stepped up and made shots.” Johnson scored 18 of his points in the first half, as KU built a 31-21 advantage. The Jayhawks extended that lead to 47-26 with 13:25 left.

“You can’t give Kansas a 20-point lead on your home court and expect to play perfect and come back and win,” Kennedy said. “The only thing I would say is that we didn’t throw in the towel. We had opportunities to cash it in, and we battled a little bit.” Texas A&M made a run with a smaller lineup, moving Khris Middleton to the power forward spot to create a mismatch. The result was Middleton’s scoring 23 points — the most he’d had in a game since scoring 24

against Louisiana-Monroe on Dec. 10. Middleton contributed 11 points during A&M’s 16-2 run that cut KU’s lead to 57-53 with 1:56 left. Kennedy said the one of the biggest turning points came then, as KU guard Tyshawn Taylor drove to the basket, making a shot off the glass while drawing a blocking foul on A&M’s Zach Kinsley. Taylor added the free throw to push KU’s advantage back to seven. “I thought it was a charge, but I didn’t see it,” Kennedy said. “We

Self hypes KU-MU

COLLEGE STATION, TEXAS — Let the hype for Saturday’s Kansas-Missouri game begin. “I think it will be as good as it’s ever been in the history of the building,” Self said of the atmosphere for the 3 p.m. tipoff in Allen Fieldhouse. “That’s a pretty good statement. That building has been there a long time.” The Jayhawks, who will enter 13-2 in Big 12 play, will be able to assure a tie for an eighth-straight conference title with a win over MU (12-3), a squad that beat KU, 74-71, on Feb. 4 in Columbia, Mo. “No, probably not,” Self said, asked if it was the biggest home game in his tenure at KU. “We’ve had other games where we had to win that game to win the league. In fans’ minds and our players’ minds since they beat us the first time when we felt we had them down the stretch, I believe it’s probably in everybody else’s minds, maybe other than the coaches’, the biggest game we’ve had.” Self has received plenty of phone calls about scoring tickets. “It’s definitely a tough ticket,” he said. “From this point forward, nobody needs to call. They’re not gonna get any.” Of the game, senior guard Tyshawn Taylor said: “I’ve been waiting for Saturday to come since they got us the last time. We’ve got to take care of business at home.” O

No first-round match-ups have yet been announced. Recruiting: Semi Ojeleye, a 6-foot-6 junior forward from Ottawa High, will attend Saturday’s KUMissouri game on an unofficial visit.

More on T-Rob: Thomas Robinson was asked by’s Dana O’Neil what he will do when he makes it in the NBA: “Wow, that’s a tough question, ... I don’t know. I guess, I’d take my little sister out to dinner and then probably renew the stone on my mother’s grave, get her a nicer one.”

that weren’t good looks, weren’t good team looks. It put us in a hole. Like I just told my teammates, we can’t play against a Top-10 team — or any teams — playing from behind like that.” Even though A&M ended up shooting 50 percent from the floor in the second half (12 of 24), Kennedy admitted it wasn’t his team’s most graceful effort. “We’re sorry y’all had to watch that,” Kennedy said. “It was an ugly game. Fortunately both teams were ugly.”

just didn’t get a break. We needed some breaks. I didn’t think we had some things go our way, but you make your own breaks, too.” Though A&M had a chance to win late, it didn’t help itself with a poor offensive performance in the first half. The Aggies went just 9-for-31 in the opening 20 minutes (29 percent) while attempting only one free throw. “We just didn’t take smart shots,” A&M point guard Dash Harris said. “We rushed up quick shots

headed to the bench leaving his teammates trying to hold on without his presence. “Inexcusable,” Self said of Robinson’s technical foul. “As bad a play as I’ve seen.” Turner hit two free throws to cut the gap to 62-58. “He was never engaged in the whole game,” Self said of Robinson. “It was not totally a surprise (he was whistled for the technical).” Why was the big man so frustrated? “They did a good job pushing him out. It was physical in the post. He was never engaged in the game,” Self said. KU junior guard Elijah Johnson, who scored 18 points the first half in helping KU build a 31-21 lead and finished with 21, bricked two free throws at :39.1, keeping KU’s lead at a narrow four points. Jeff Withey (11 points, seven boards in 28 minutes) rebounded a Zach Kinsley miss of a three and was fouled at :27.2. His two free throws gave KU a 64-58 lead, finally helping steady the ship. After an Elston Turner miss, Withey again was fouled and concluded the scoring with two more free throws at :12. “Obviously, we didn’t make free throws except for Jeff. He made two big ones,” Self said. Another big bucket came from senior guard Tyshawn Taylor, who hit a driving layup and foul shot at 1:57, boosting the 57-53 lead to seven points. It was KU’s first basket in a long seven-minute stretch. It came early in the shot clock on a set play. “He can get in the paint and get his own shot. He needs to start getting shots for his teammates,” Self said of Taylor, who had 12 points and four assists against two turnovers. “He is as good as anybody in the country getting his shoulders past



technical, his fifth foul. Robinson played just 28 minutes, Tyshawn Taylor just 30, thanks to foul trouble. On this team, when starters are forced to sit for longer than a quick rest, bad things can happen. Kansas did come away with the victory it needed, and to a large extent scoring from an unexpected source helped that to happen. All things considered, Elijah Johnson picked a great night to assert himself offensively. Johnson scored 18 of his game-high 21 points in the first half. At that point, with Kansas leading 31-21, Johnson had more than a third of the game’s points for both teams. In the first half, Robinson and Taylor combined for one field goal and three points, and Tra-

When your secondleading scorer has four,

that’s obviously not great.” Johnson made three of seven three-point shots, the rest of the team one of 11. Johnson made seven of 11 field goals, the rest of the team 14 of 43 (.326). “He was huge,” Taylor said of Johnson. “He got

people. We ran a fake ball screen, told him to turn the corner. He turned the corner. That was a big play. They’d gotten it to four, and we were able to get it to five, six. The pressure was on, but not like it would have been if they got another stop and basket.” Self was puzzled by the meltdown at the end. He said the squad sensed an opportunity Tuesday when Missouri lost to Kansas State, giving KU (23-5 overall, 13-2 Big 12) a half-game lead over Mizzou in the standings entering the A&M game. KU needed to beat A&M to give the Jayhawks a full-game lead and chance of clinching at least a tie with a win Saturday. “The way I tried to sell it (A&M game) to our guys was, we caught a break,” Self said. “Not that often in sports or life you get one handed to you, but you have to make sure you take advantage of a break. When we play well, our energy is great, and we are unselfish. I thought our thoughts were not unselfish tonight.” get hot, and banking on Conner Teahan to steal possessions by banging the boards (career-high eight rebounds, three off the offensive glass) won’t cut it in the tourney. Look for Kansas to be at its best in front of the home crowd in Saturday’s rivalry game pitting No. 3 Missouri against No. 4 Kansas. That atmosphere will blow away any NCAA Tournament environment. In contrast, just 6,868 made it to Reed Arena. Tourney crowds all are bigger than that, but with so many of the seats filled for some games with fans waiting for another contest or not having a strong rooting interest, the feel can be a lot closer to that of Wednesday’s game than Saturday’s. If the KU players, especially the best one, can remember how quickly things turned sour midway through the second half Wednesday, it might help them avoid the same mistakes that could be fatal once the season advances to the singleelimination phase.

Dear Annie: Last April, I moved into an apartment with one of my best friends. We get along great except for one thing: her cats. ‘‘Renee” was born with no sense of smell. She’s normally very organized except when it comes to the animals. She forgets to clean the litterbox because she can’t smell it, so I have to remind her constantly. The odor can become so unbearable that I no longer allow my friends inside. Also, her cats play with their food trays and water dishes and knock everything onto the floor. She never cleans it up. I had to confront her about this because it was attracting bugs. And when the cats throw up, I’m the one who ends up cleaning it because I know she won’t do it. It is absolutely disgusting. I don’t like being confrontational, and Renee is very argumentative.

Annie’s Mailbox

Marcy Sugar and Kathy Mitchell

Anytime I’ve tried to address this, it falls on deaf ears. I’ve managed to survive this long as her roommate, so right now I am simply biding my time until I can move out. However, Renee recently commented that she doesn’t want me to leave when our lease is up. I wouldn’t mind living with her again if she would give up her cats, but I know that isn’t going to happen, and I’d feel guilty asking her. Renee and I have the same circle of friends, so if I ask around about

‘Filthy Rich’ not about the glamour As the saying goes, you can’t be too thin or too rich. But you can be “Filthy Rich” (8 p.m., CNBC). Tonight’s program is no celebration of the lifestyles of the rich and famous, but a troubling examination of money sheltering and furtive investments. We hear a lot about liberation movements in dictatorships like Libya or Syria, but there are still many countries on the periphery of our attention that remain harsh dictatorships, places where a handful of people and their families retain all of the wealth while the vast populace barely survive. For years, these tyrants hid their loot in Swiss banks or offshore accounts. According to “Filthy,” an increasing number of these folks are finding the United States to be hospitable to their money, their investments and even their relatives. One Nevada man discloses that he has helped people form more than 2,000 “shell corporations,” companies that don’t disclose their true owners. Some are less discreet. On one spending spree, a ruling family from a West African dictatorship bought millions of dollars of cars, jewelry and even Michael Jackson’s crystal-studded glove. It was a steal at $275,000. Some state officials interviewed here welcome investments and corporate formation any way they can get them. Others in the federal government fear that turning a blind eye to this foreign-plundered wealth invites corruption and worse. But it’s difficult to take the high road when you need gasoline to get there. Many of the worst offenders in this global kleptocracy come from oil-producing nations. We may abhor their values, but for the time being, they have us over a barrel.

Except for the goof-offs on “Unsupervised” (9:30 p.m., FX), it’s almost impossible to be a teenager in a cartoon and not have superpowers. “Monsuno” (7 p.m., Nicktoons) embarks on a 52-episode adventure involving kids who have gained the power to control the Monsumo, creatures whose DNA was carried to Earth in a prehistoric asteroid. Dormant for millions of years, they’re back with a vengeance and ready for action.

Tonight’s other highlights

“Leap day” proves challenging on “30 Rock” (7 p.m., NBC).

Risky business on “Person of Interest” (8 p.m., CBS).

Andy makes an unusual request on “The Office” (8 p.m., NBC).

“Bones” character Jack Hodgins (T.J. Thyne) appears on a crossover episode of “The Finder” (8 p.m., Fox).

A critic of cults makes his last observation on “The Mentalist” (9 p.m., CBS).


Actor Peter Fonda is 72. Singermusician Johnny Winter is 68. Actress Patricia Richardson is 61. Rock musician Brad Whitford (Aerosmith) is 60. Actress Kristin Davis is 47. Tennis player Helena Sukova is 47. Actress Dakota Fanning is 18.

a new roommate, she’ll hear, and it would hurt her feelings. I don’t want to ruin our friendship, because she truly is a good person and an amazing friend. I just want out of kitty hell. — Always Holding My Nose Dear Nose: You have nothing to lose by telling Renee that she must take better care of the cats or you are moving out. She can clean the litterbox at regular intervals, whether she smells it or not. And anything that lands on the floor is visible to both of you. She may be an “amazing” friend, but she is a lousy roommate. Dear Annie: How can I get my husband and his sister to stop scratching and picking at their heads and ears? It’s disgusting and looks terrible. They do it at work, too, and it’s so unprofessional. — Tired of Picking Dear Tired: First ask


For Thursday, Feb. 23, 2012: This year you forge a new path, but only after you are sure that the status quo does not work. Tension and sarcasm often mark your endeavors. Are they a reason to move in another direction? Deal with funds carefully. Your communication excels. If you are single, you will see the results of being able to present yourself well. Look for romance after June. If you are attached, the two of you work through some hot-button issues. Passion plays a significant role in your bond. 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)  Much might be going on at work and within yourself. You could become angry, but try not to act on that feeling. Tonight: Perking up. Taurus (April 20-May 20)  You benefit in the daylight hours. Whatever you decide to do works out even better than you thought possible. Tonight: Make it early. Gemini (May 21-June 20)  Conflict is possible with a boss. Honor your differences and remember who is in charge. Tonight: Where the fun is. Cancer (June 21-July 22)  If you are not sure as to which way to go, reach out to a trusted friend. Together, if you are open, you can figure out the proper path. Tonight: Burning the candle at both ends. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Sarcasm marks the morning. Be smart, and avoid playing into this behavior. You know what you want and where you are going. Tonight: Get away from the here

your husband to see his doctor or dermatologist to find out whether he has a scalp condition. If so, there is likely treatment that will alleviate the problem, and it also might help your sisterin-law. Otherwise, it would seem to be an ingrained family habit. That means it will be hard to shake, especially if one is unwilling to address it. You have no say over his sister’s bad habits, but explain to your husband how off-putting this is, and ask whether he’d be willing to work on it. Because he is undoubtedly unaware that he’s scratching and picking, your job will be to point it out, nicely, every single time you catch him. — Send questions to, or Annie’s Mailbox, P.O. Box 118190 Chicago, IL 60611.

and now. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)  Others continue to knock on your door, and will call and email you. You might be surprised at all the inquiries. Tonight: Make nice with a favorite person. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  Focus on work and your accomplishments. You have so much to do and so little time. Your effectiveness emerges. Tonight: Accept an invitation. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  Remove yourself from situations where you might not be energized or interested. Others will be able to see your lack of involvement. Tonight: Try to make it early. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)  You move slowly when dealing with a boss or older relative. You wonder why you have done what you have as of late, especially with another person’s attitude. Tonight: Paint the town red. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)  Make phone calls and schedule meetings. Above all else, do not stand on ceremony, especially with a key person. Tonight: Mosey on home. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  Refuse to get involved with others financially, or to accept another person’s idea regarding your funds. You might not be right, but he or she might not be right either. Tonight: Listen to the pros and cons. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)  Someone might be trying to push your buttons. Stay centered and nonreactive, and this person will stop. Tonight: Get another opinion and maybe one more. Then decide. — The astrological forecast should be read for entertainment only.
