RACHEL MADDOW HOSTED HER MSNBC SHOW AT FREE STATE BREWERY on Wednesday, discussing current national and state issues, such as union rights and abortion rights. Maddow said she has been following the ethics hearings of former Kansas Attorney General Phill Kline.

David Booth wants to display James Naismith’s original rules of “Basket Ball” in Lawrence, at Kansas University, in conjunction with the school’s athletics programs. Soon, a team of university leaders will be meeting to decide just where, when and how. And, of course, for how much. “The university and athletics and everybody — endowment, alumni, the Booths — we’re all going to get together and work this out and come up with a great plan,” said Jim Marchiony, an associate athletics director for Kansas Athletics Inc. The working group — Marchiony tentatively referred to it as a task force, one

SEE HOOPS HISTORY James Naismith committed his original typewritten rules of “Basket Ball” to paper on Dec. 21, 1891 — “Hung in the gym that the boys might learn the rules,” he said, in a handwritten note added to the document June 28, 1931. Now you can see all 13 rules yourself, during a free exhibition at the NelsonAtkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, Mo. The display opens March 4 and continues through May 29. Free, timed tickets are available through Nelson-Atkins.org, at the Info Desk in the Bloch Building, or by calling 816-751-1278. The rules are owned by David Booth, who purchased the documents at auction in December for $4.33 million. He intends for the rules to find a permanent home at KU.

Leaders of the Lawrence Community Shelter cleared one hurdle Wednesday night to allow the homeless shelter to remain downtown — and expand the numbers it can serve — while it searches for a new location. Lawrence-Douglas County planning commissioners recommended approval of a one-year extension of the shelter’s permit that allows it to operate at 10th and Kentucky streets after a Douglas County District Court ruling has all but killed plans for the shelter to move to a site near the county jail. It also approved a request to increase the maximum occupancy of the building to 82 people. Currently the building can serve 82 during cold winter months but has been

limited to 57 people from April through September. “It seems like this provides a humane service but also some protection to the community that people will be taken care of in a warm bed instead of wandering around the community,” said Planning Commissioner Bruce Liese. The Planning Commission’s recommendation now will be forwarded to the Lawrence City Commission, which will make the final decision on the permit extension. Planning commissioners recommended approval on a 6-1 vote, after hearing from several supporters of the shelter who urged approval of the permit and one longtime neighbor who said the shelter had been allowed to operate too long in the neighborhood. “We have to do something to

the space to do this.” Maddow said the decision to air the show live from Lawrence was even simpler than that. “Honestly the reason we ended up in Lawrence is because our Kansas producers love Lawrence,” she said. And the crowd loved the show back, applauding and cheering when they felt it appropriate. Maddow, who told the crowd after the show she’d likely be back, said the local experience was one she enjoyed. “The people could not be cooler,” Maddow said. “I feel like I’m among friends, and it’s been a joy.”

T OPEKA — New restrictions on abortions in Kansas won first-round approval Wednesday in the Kansas House, including a proposed fetal pain law to block late-term procedures like one Nebraska enacted last year and a requirement for doctors to get parents’ consent before ending a minor’s pregnancy. The House advanced two bills on separate voice votes — a fetal pain measure and another making numerous changes, many of which had been vetoed by former Democratic governors who supported abortion rights. Final votes on both were anticipated Thursday, and House members expected the bills to pass and go to the Senate. Abortion opponents see the measures as tightening up the state’s laws on abortion enough to keep Kansas from regaining a past reputation as a center for late-term procedures, a distinction it had for years because of Dr. George Tiller’s clinic in Wichita, until he was shot to death in 2009. “It moves us to absolutely the forefront with respect to how restrictive our laws would be with respect to late-term abortion,” said House Judiciary Committee Chairman Lance Kinzer, an Olathe Republican and strong supporter of both measures. But critics said the measures go further than restricting late-term procedures and argue they would endanger women’s health. Peter Brownlie, president and chief executive officer of Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri, predicted the fetal pain proposal, based on science that’s disputed, would draw a court challenge. “Women have abortions for many different reasons, and each person’s circumstances are different,” Brownlie said. “These must ultimately be private decisions made by women and their doctors, not political mandates.” The Republican-controlled Legislature has had majorities in both chambers for much of the past decade inclined to impose new restrictions on abortion, particularly in the House. Bills were repeatedly vetoed by Democratic Govs. Mark Parkinson and Kathleen Sebelius, but GOP Gov. Sam Brownback, who was elected in November, is a strong abortion opponent and has called on lawmakers to create “a culture of life.”

motivate them to move into a larger location,” said Planning Commissioner Charlie Dominguez, who voted against the request. “We can’t just keep coddling them every time they come here for an extension.” Shelter director Loring Henderson told commissioners that the shelter still plans to move from the site and has made it a goal to identify a new location this year. After the meeting, Henderson confirmed that the shelter has begun looking for new sites and that it is not considering an appeal of the court’s recent ruling. “An appeal takes years, and we don’t have that kind of time,” Henderson said. — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362.

LAWRENCE

| Thursday, February 24, 2011

DEATHS Dawn Renea (Grier) Smith Smith, Dawn Renea (Grier), 31, of Lawrence, passed away Monday, February 21, 2011 at the KU Medical Center in Kansas City, surrounded by many family members and friends who loved and cherished her. Dawn was born in Wichita, Kansas on September 20, 1979. She graduated from Goddard high school and attended the University Smith of Kansas. At KU she resided in Miller Scholarship Hall, earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Genetics and a minor in German, and achieving a 3.9/4.0 grade point average. Shortly before graduating, Dawn felt a call to Christian ministry and pursued post-graduate education in California though Victory Campus Ministries. Following completion of her ministerial certification, Dawn began a career she loved, working for Midwest Student Ministries at the University of Kansas. It was through her work that she met the love of her life, Austin Andrew Bondurant Smith. Austin also worked in ministry, sharing her passion for serving others and her love and trust of Jesus Christ. The two were married in Lawrence, Kansas on January 5, 2008. Dawn was known for her wisdom and kindness, particularly in counseling women who had suffered abused. She always carried herself with grace and exemplified courage as she struggled with the genetic disorder, Cystic Fibrosis.

She was adamant that the illness would in no way define her life and it did not. Instead, Dawn will always be remembered for her intelligence, kindness and sensitivity, her compassion and love, and her complete lack of self-pity or bitterness. She was preceded in death by her sister, Shannon Grier Tran and by her grandfather, Al Grier and grandfathers-in-law, Phil Siegrist and Norman Smith. She is survived by her husband, Austin Smith, of Lawrence, her mother and step-father, Margie and Paul Lillig, father and step-mother, Kent and Jan Harrison Grier, all of Wichita, her mother-in-law, Kathy Siegrist, of Overland Park, KS., her father-in-law, the Reverend Dr. Ray Smith, brother-in-law and sister-inlaw, Travis and April Smith, all of Spokane, WA., sisterin-law and brother-in-law, Ashley and Mark Ware of Gardner, KS., grandparents, Janette Grier and Sue Lillig, both of Wichita, Carol Burroughs and Bob and Betsy Wolfslau of St. Louis, MO., grandmothers-in-law, Amber Lou Smith of Spokane, WA. and Marietta Siegrist of Overland Park, KS. Dawn is also survived by many aunts, uncles, cousins and innumerable friends.

B ooth, a g raduate of Lawrence High school and Kansas University, bought the rules at auction last month for $4.33 million, with the expressed intention of having the rules permanently displayed at KU. At the time, he indicated they would need “an appropriate venue,” possibly a new museum. “I think it’s a little bigger than the Booth Family Hall of Athletics,” he said at the time, referring to the center connected to Allen Fieldhouse that already displays KU trophies, basketballs, part of the Hoch Auditorium basketball court and other memorabilia — which, by the way, cost less to build than the rules were to buy. “This is serious stuff.” Booth, who is chairman and co-CEO of Dimensional Fund Advisors, intends to play an active role in the working group. “He’ll be involved intimateUTH ANGFORD ly,” one of his assistants said COLUMBUS, GA. — Services traveling and working cross- Wednesday.

Gadhafi hold loosens as revolt spreads The scope of Moammar Gadhafi’s control was whittled away Wednesday as major Libyan cities and towns closer to the capital fell to the rebellion against his rule. In the east, now all but broken away, the opposition vowed to “liberate” Tripoli, where the Libyan leader is holed up with a force of militiamen roaming the streets and tanks guarding the outskirts. In a further sign of Gadhafi’s faltering hold, two air force pilots — one from the leader’s own tribe — parachuted out of their warplane and let it crash into the eastern Libyan desert rather than follow orders to bomb an opposition-held city. International momentum was building for action to punish Gadhafi’s regime for the bloody crackdown it has unleashed against the uprising that began Feb. 15. President Barack Obama said the suffering and bloodshed in Libya “is outrageous and it is unacceptable,” and he directed his administration to prepare a full range of options, including possible sanctions that could freeze the assets and ban travel to the U.S. by Libyan officials. 2 | WASHINGTON, D.C.

Higher oil prices would hamper economy Just as the U.S. and global economies are finally strengthening, they face a new danger: rocketing oil prices, which topped $100 a barrel Wednesday. The U.S. economy can likely absorb $100 oil and keep expanding, even though gasoline prices would rise further and growth would slow. But it would hurt. Gasoline for U.S. motorists already costs more than at any point since 2008, despite ample supplies. The national average for a gallon of unleaded was $3.19 on Wednesday — 53 cents more than a year ago. Analysts expect the average to range between $3.25 and $3.75 this spring.

Defense of anti-gay-marriage law dropped

bhawley@ljworld.com

President Barack Obama ordered his administration on Wednesday to stop defending the constitutionality of a federal law that bans recognition of gay marriage, a policy reversal that could have major implications for the rights and benefits of gay couples and reignite an emotional debate for the 2012 presidential campaign. Obama still is “grappling” with his personal views on whether gays should be allowed to marry but has long opposed the federal law as unnecessary and unfair, said spokesman Jay Carney. First word of the change came not from the White House but from the Justice Department. Attorney General Eric Holder announced that Obama had concluded the 15-year-old Defense of Marriage Act, or DOMA, was legally indefensible. The decision was immediately welcomed by gay rights organizations and vilified by those on the other side.

Jesse Milan can remember the f irst time he came to Lawrence to participate in the Kansas Relays. The year was 1943, and he was a high school track athlete. When he and his black teammates walked up to the student union, white people threw pennies at them as an insult. The city claimed to be progressive and open-minded, but Milan disagreed. “Lawrence, Kansas, was not a free city,” he said. Milan, who was the first black teacher to be hired in the Lawrence school district, visited Prairie Park School Wednesday morning to speak with Cathy White’s fifth-grade classes. Milan, 82, told the kids of his experiences in Lawrence as part of Black History Month. “You probably read in a book that Kansas was a free state. Have you heard that?” Milan asked the students. “Biggest lie ever told.” Milan came to Lawrence to teach in 1954, soon after Brown v. Board of Education declared

Governor signs civil unions into law Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie signed same-sex civil unions into law Wednesday, calling it “a triumph for everyone” that gay and lesbian couples will have the same state rights as married partners. Civil unions in the Rainbow State would start Jan. 1, 2012, making Hawaii the seventh state to permit civil unions or similar legal recognitions for gay couples. Five other states and the District of Columbia allow same-sex marriage. “This bill represents equal rights for everyone in Hawaii, everyone who comes here. This is to me the essence of the aloha spirit,” Abercrombie said at a signing ceremony. “With its signing, I want to say ‘welcome’ to the world, come to paradise.” A crowd of exuberant supporters yelled, cheered and applauded as the Democrat inscribed his signature on the legislation, making it the first law he’s enacted since he was elected in November. The bill passed the state Legislature last week. 4 | BAGHDAD

segregation unconstitutional. Minutes after he signed his contract, he received a phone call from an angry parent who didn’t want a black man teaching his children. That didn’t stop him, though. Milan worked throughout the district as a physical education consultant, and many black residents came to him for advice about how to deal with racial issues they encountered. He encountered them himself. “The shows were segregated. The restrooms were segregated. Employment was segregated. And here you had one black teacher in town,” he said. “I had a great time.” In 1967 when the issue came up for a city pool where blacks and whites could swim together, Milan helped organize kids to knock on doors to get the bond issue to pass.

At a time when other parts of the Arab world are in turmoil, Iraq is feeling stable enough to begin removing some of the tall concrete blast walls that went up as protection against bombings and insurgents during the height of the war. Iraqis have seen it before. In 2009 Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki started taking down walls, only to restore them when a series of government buildings were bombed. But in the past couple of weeks they’ve been coming down again, starting in Baghdad, and if this time it’s for good, traffic jams will ease, trade will pick up and Baghdadis will be rid of an ugly symbol of everything Iraq has gone through since the 2003 U.S.-led invasion.

— Jesse Milan, the first black teacher hired by the Lawrence school district, discussing his early experiences in Lawrence helped organize a group at the skating rink, and from then on black and white children could skate together. “I was ensuring all kids had an equal chance,” he said. He made such a difference that the district even celebrated Jesse Milan Day in 1997. Now Milan volunteers in the Kansas City, Kan., schools and is active in many organizations, including the NAACP. Isabelle Ginavan, 11, was surprised to hear about Milan’s experiences in Lawrence, something she didn’t realize had happened in her town. Race isn’t a concern among her classmates, Ginavan said. “I don’t think that a lot of people care about that anymore,” she said. — Reporter Brenna Hawley can be reached at 832-7217.

You probably read in a book that Kansas was a free state. Have you heard that? Biggest lie ever told.”

TOPEKA (AP) — A state agency that works to encourage bioscience investments in Kansas is being criticized for its spending on salaries and bonuses, after records showed more than half of the agency’s employees make more than $100,000 a year. Members of the Senate Commerce Committee on Tuesday blasted the Kansas Bioscience Authority, calling the compensation for the agency’s executives and staff “shocking” and “exorbitant.” The committee asked that the agency be audited and LEGISLATURE also sent a bill to the full Senate that would require the secretaries of commerce and revenue to serve as the chair and treasurer of the authority’s board. The $265,000 salary and $100,000 bonus paid to CEO Tom Thornton drew particular attention from committee members. Twelve of the agency’s 21 employees have salaries of more than $100,000, and a total of $106,000 was paid in bonuses to 12 employees other than Thornton, The Wichita Eagle reported. “They’re very exorbitant for Kansas salaries,” said committee Chairwoman Susan Wagle, RWichita, adding that Thornton’s compensation is “four times the governor’s salary.” The authority works to encourage biotechnology businesses to locate labs and other facilities in Kansas by promoting the state’s business climate and providing direct capital investment to emerging companies.

It took a nudge from Thomas Dewey to convince Eisenhower to run in 1952 because, Smith said, the New York governor told the NATO commander — who was immensely popular for, among other things, planning

the D-Day invasion — there was a “distinct possibility” the GOP might be forced to turn to Douglas MacArthur. The style of MacArthur, who was more flamboyant, contrasted greatly with Eisenhower’s nature, and it created some tension between the two, although historians say Eisenhower did learn lessons from MacArthur. “He learned what to avoid in some ways, but he acknowledged MacArthur’s brilliance,” Smith said.

Brownback not supportive of immigrant tuition repeal

A:

Good eye. Annie Tedesco is a Lawrence High grad who also studied at Kansas University. She’s appeared in two episodes as Diana Kremp on “Harry’s Law,” a new show on NBC starring Oscar winner Kathy Bates. In addition to “Harry’s Law,” Tedesco has appeared on “Dexter,” “How I Met Your Mother” and “Criminal Minds.”

CALL SOUND OFF

TOPEKA — Gov. Sam Brownback indicated Wednesday he wasn’t supportive of a bill the House has passed that would repeal in-state tuition for some undocumented students. Brownback, a Republican, said he was watching the legislative process on House Bill 2006 and wanted to have discussions about the issue with interested parties. But, he added, “What I’m advocating for is things I put in the Road Map.” During his campaign, Brownback proposed a “Road Map for Kansas” that focused on the economy and education. The House on Tuesday

approved the repeal on a 7250 vote with only Republican support. The bill now goes to the Senate for consideration. Under current 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. Kansas Board of Regents said 413 students enrolled under the law last fall at state universities, community colleges and technical colleges. 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. Supporters of the current law say it provides an opportunity for students who aren’t citizens but whose parents brought them as children to Kansas. But the law’s opponents say it provides an incentive for illegal immigrants. Brownback’s comments on the bill came after he spoke to about 80 people during Hispanic Day on the Hill. During his speech, Brownback said the state faces many tough issues. A former U.S. Senator, Brownback said Washington politics focused on fighting, while in Kansas, “it’s about identifying a problem and solving it.”

BRIEFLY Vassar standoff ends without injuries An eight-hour standoff in the Osage County town of Vassar ended with no injuries, according to a release from the Osage County Sheriff’s Office. Shortly after 4:15 p.m. Tuesday, the sheriff’s office responded to a distraught man in a home in the 2600 block of Main Street, who was armed with several weapons. After a family member in the home was able to leave safely, the man fired several shots randomly, police said. The situation was resolved shortly after midnight when the 31-year-old man left the house and was arrested on a charge of criminal discharge of a firearm at an occupied dwelling. Vassar is just south of Pomona Lake.

Douglas County Food Policy Council met with the County Commission Wednesday to highlight its goals for the upcoming year. The Food Policy Council has made great strides since its creation about a year ago, council member Tom Buller said. It has made community presentations and invited local stakeholders to join the organization’s meetings. It has also created outreach efforts to support other com-

munity food efforts, such as Liberty Hall’s Our Local Food festival, the formation of Free State High School’s community garden and ECKAN’s hunger free community grant project. The council’s future goals include providing continued support for local producers of sustainable food, increasing public outreach, providing access to and greater distribution of local food, as well as identification, preservation and sustainable development of local resources. The council is also collaborating with Kansas State University to develop a report that will identify what residents of Douglas County currently consume, what they produce and the economic implications of refocusing the food system on local products.

Free vision screenings offered for 3-year-olds More than a dozen Lawrence optometrists are providing free vision assessments for 3-year-olds this week as part of Kansas See To Learn Week.

The free assessments are provided regardless of income or insurance coverage. Most — if not all — of the Lawrence

Local participating eye doctors are: Curtis Anderson, Brent Crandon, Elizabeth Crandon, Sharon Green, John Harvat, Brian Horsch, Dennis Hoss, Jacob Letourneau, Bridgette Ostmeyer, Kenneth Trummel, Kevin Trummel and Angela Truelove.

On prank call, Wis. governor discusses strategy Dems not deterred by recall threat MILWAUKEE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Wisconsin state Sen. Chris Larson packed just his toothbrush and one extra shirt when he and 13 fellow Democrats fled the state last week to avoid nearcertain passage of the Republican governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan to strip public workers of their collective bargaining rights. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That tells you, I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think it would take this long,â&#x20AC;? Larson said by telephone from somewhere in Illinois, which he declined to disclose. Nearly a week later the stalemate persists at the Capitol in Madison, and the pro-union protests that began there have spread to other states â&#x20AC;&#x201D; including Indiana, where labor legislation and other GOP proposals sparked a similar Democratic walkout. The 14 wayward Wisconsin lawmakers have given no hint about when they might return, even amid recall threats, a Senate rule change that forces them to appear in person if they want to receive their paychecks and the GOPcontrolled Legislature returning to work on other business without them. The Senate canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take up any measures because it needs at least one of the 14 Democrats for a quorum.

By Ryan J. Foley Associated Press Writer

MADISON, WIS. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; On a prank call that quickly spread across the Internet, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker was duped into discussing his strategy to cripple public employee unions, promising never to give in and joking that he would use a baseball bat in his office to go after political opponents. Walker believed the caller was a conservative billionaire named David Koch, but it was actually the editor of a liberal online newspaper. The two talked for at least 20 minutes â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a conversation in which the governor described several potential ways to pressure Democrats to return to the Statehouse and revealed that his supporters had considered secretly planting people in pro-union protest crowds to stir up trouble. The call, which surfaced Wednesday, also showed Walkerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cozy relationship with two billionaire brothers who have poured millions of dollars into conservative political causes, including Walkerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s campaign last year. Walker compared his stand to that taken by President Ronald Reagan when he fired the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s air-traffic controllers during a labor dispute in 1981. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was the first crack in the Berlin Wall and led to the fall of the Soviets,â&#x20AC;? Walker said on the recording. The audio was posted by the Buffalo Beast, a left-leaning website based in Buffalo,

N.Y., and quickly went viral. Ian Murphy told The Associated Press he carried out the prank to show how candidly Walker would speak with Koch even though, according to Democrats, he refuses to return their calls. Murphy said he arranged the call Tuesday after speaking with two Walker aides, including the governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chief of staff. He placed the call using Skype and recorded it. Walker spokesman Cullen Werwie confirmed that it was Walkerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s voice on the call. At a news conference, Walker acknowledged being deceived but stuck to his message that the union changes were needed to balance Wisconsinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not going to let one prank phone call be a distraction from the job we have to do,â&#x20AC;? Walker said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The things I said are the things Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve said publicly all the time.â&#x20AC;? On the call, the governor said he was ratcheting up the pressure on Senate Democrats to return to the Capitol a week after they fled to block the legislation. He said he supported a move to require them to come to the Capitol to pick up their paychecks rather than have the money deposited directly. He also floated an idea to lure Democratic senators back to the Capitol for negotiations and then have the Senate quickly pass the bill while they are in talks. Walker said aides were reviewing whether the GOP could hold a vote if Democrats were not physically in the Sen-

Bill prohibits union election deductions By Scott Rothschild srothschild@ljworld.com

said although the authority works in the private sector and has to be run something like a business, â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a government agency, government money, taxpayer money. To be handing out bonuses like this ... itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just shocking to me.â&#x20AC;? The authorityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chief financial officer, Janice Katterhenry, told the Senate committee that executive compensation is set by the authorityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s board, with guidance from Buck Consultants, a Xerox Corp. subsidiary that specializes in human resources. Katterhenry was paid $175,000 and a $24,000 bonus in 2010, giving her the second-highest compensation at the agency. Some senators urged their colleagues to be careful not to be so critical that it hurts the authorityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s efforts to bring high-paying jobs to Kansas. Sen. Jeff Longbine, REmporia, said undue controversy could discourage private-sector investors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If they thought they were

porters in the Legislature said House Bill 2130 was an attack on the ability of workers to organize and participate as a group in the political process. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a nice attempt to stick it to unions,â&#x20AC;? said Rep. Mike Slattery, D-Mission. Supporters of the bill say it is aimed at helping union workers who disagreed with their unionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s political activities. But union supporters said union members can always opt out of not belonging to the union or not wanting their dues used for political

Longbine said. But several senators also questioned the agencyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spending on entertainment and promotion, including $21,197 for its annual report, $20,750 for advertising to a trade magazine and $6,270 for a legislative reception. Sen. Chris Steineger, RKansas City, said the agencyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spending is â&#x20AC;&#x153;the worst thing Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen in 15 years of public office.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re paying them â&#x20AC;Ś to manage and invest our money wisely,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s obvious to everybody here that this money is

not being spent wisely, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s being spent to aggrandize and to have one hell of a lifestyle on the public dollar.â&#x20AC;? The committeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s criticism comes amid questions from the Wichita State University Center of Innovation for Biomaterials in Orthopaedic Research, or CIBOR. Scientists there say they are not receiving a five-year, $20 million grant the authority promised to fund research on using aerospace composite materials to develop new medical devices. Thornton, who was unable to attend Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hearing, has denied that the authority committed to any funding for CIBOR beyond an initial $4 million investment. But some lawmakers contend the authority made presentations to them indicating it would help fund the CIBOR project.

Break the cycle Students, faculty and staff all need to send the message that hazing won’t be tolerated at Kansas University.

O

Reporter deserves compassion Morrises fan

PUBLIC FORUM

n some college campuses, hazing is one ritual that just won’t die. Sadly, Kansas University currently is one of those

places. Last fall, a KU freshman hit his head after he dived into a makeshift pool at a Phi Gamma Delta fraternity party. That young man now is paralyzed. Two months later, some members of the group that actually governs KU’s 21 fraternities took turns paddling one another after they’d inducted new officers. Both Phi Gamma Delta and the Interfraternity Council now are serving two-year probation terms for participating in hazing. Those probations came with orders. Among them was a requirement that IFC hire a consultant to review the hazing problem in the greek community and recommend initiatives. Some council members also must attend an intensive anti-hazing seminar. The Fijis are required to have an alcohol-free house this school year and they can’t participate in KU events such as intramural sports and Rock Chalk Revue. In addition, there are community service requirements, as well as education programs. But a nagging question remains: Will fulfilling those requirements be enough to end this potentially dangerous and degrading nonsense? Unfortunately, the actions of the Fijis and council members are not isolated incidents at KU. It stands to reason that underage drinking and excessive alcohol consumption both play a role in this behavior, but there’s more at work here. There’s a culture of acceptance, at least tacit acceptance, of hazing. For that, every KU student, staff and faculty member must shoulder some responsibility. Where’s the outrage? Who’s standing up and demanding an end to hazing at KU? Or has KU fallen victim to this complacent attitude: Students will be students, and KU’s no different from any other school. Why in the world wouldn’t KU want to be different — very different — from other schools that have hazing problems? To say the university isn’t alone is little comfort. Instead, Kansas University must take the lead among colleges in solving this frustrating problem. It’s hoped that the university’s new student conduct officer, who started work in January, is the person to ensure the cycle of hazing is broken. Really broken. Nick Kehrwald promises a more proactive approach at KU. In addition, a new anti-hazing task force has been meeting to discuss the issue. There’s much important work to be done, for the good of the university and all of its students.

Suggested things to say when a woman is sexually assaulted: Is there anything I can do? I am so sorry this happened. I am with you. You would think suggestions would be unnecessary. You would think the essential fact of being human and knowing another human being has been hurt in one of the worst ways possible would make the words automatic. But the recent attack on Lara Logan of CBS News — beaten and assaulted while reporting on the uprising in Egypt — suggests that is not always the case. “Lara Logan is lucky she’s alive,” wrote something named Jim Hoff, blogging on something called Gateway Pundit. “Her liberal belief system almost got her killed on Friday. ... Why did this attractive blonde female reporter wander into Tahrir Square last Friday? Why did she think this was a good idea? ... Was it her political correctness that about got her killed?” Something named Debbie Schlussel, blogging on an eponymous website, used the attack as a launching pad for a screed against the “animals” Schlussel blamed — meaning not the attackers themselves, but Islam writ large. “So sad, too bad, Lara. No one told her to go there. She knew the risks. And she should have known what Islam is all about.” On the other side of the bipolar American political divide, something named Nir Rosen — a journalist and a fellow at New York University — mocked Logan in a series of tweets as a “warmonger,” presumably for her coverage of the Iraq and/or Afghanistan wars, and said he was “rolling my eyes” at the attention she’d be getting.

Leonard Pitts Jr. lpitts@miamiherald.com

Rape is nearly as common as the common cold. And can you imagine looking into the eyes of that one woman in six and saying something as asinine, as unfeeling, as heart dead and soul cold as, “So sad, too bad”?” Let us pass lightly on the specific “thoughts” — a term used advisedly here — raised by these individuals, except to note that, contrary to what Hoff and Schlussel imply, Logan did not wander aimlessly into that square. The woman is a reporter and she was doing what reporters do: going places, sometimes dicey, difficult or dangerous places, in order to originate the information that allows the rest of us to opine from the comfort of our chairs. The suggestion that in doing her job, Logan somehow “deserved” what happened to her is appalling. As is Hoff’s political spin, Rosen’s mockery and Schlussel’s frothing bigotry. But what is also appalling — arguably, more appalling — is the reflexive objectif ication of a

woman who has been violently violated. To read these comments and the many more like them circulating the web, it is easy to forget that we are talking about a real attack upon a real woman who must now grapple with real consequences. It’s as if some feel Logan’s tragedy exists only as a vehicle for them to score political points. One in every six American women has been the victim of an attempted or completed rape. The number — it comes from the Rape Abuse & Incest National Network — bears repeating: one in six. Rape is nearly as common as the common cold. And can you imagine looking into the eyes of that one woman in six and saying something as asinine, as unfeeling, as heart dead and soul cold as, “So sad, too bad”? Yet this sort of thing, this treating of other people’s traumas as if they were abstractions unworthy of reverence, is common now in the public forum. As in the vitriol that attended the deaths of Tony Snow, Robert Novak and Sen. Edward Kennedy. The great irony of the Internet era, the era that brought the world together, is that in some ways, we live at a greater remove from one another, from simple decency, and from our own humanity, than ever before. Lara Logan was sexually assaulted. She is a real person — she exists somewhere at this very moment — and she is deserving of our compassion, our empathy and our prayers. There was a time that would have been unnecessary to say. — Leonard Pitts Jr. is a columnist for the Miami Herald. He chats with readers from noon to 1 p.m. each Wednesday on www.MiamiHerald.com.

From the Lawrence Daily JournalWorld for Feb. 24, 1911: "While the Journal was being burned out the other day the linotype operator YEARS carried out the magazines and matrices AGO and in his excitement turned over one set IN 1911 of the matrices to someone, whom he is now unable to remember. They are doubtless safe, but the party having them will have to notify the office. There are probably other things that were carried to safety by willing helpers and if so it would be well to call up the office so they could be gathered in." — Compiled by Sarah St. John

To the editor: I love Marcus and Markieff Morris. I love the intensity that they play basketball with. I have had several opportunities to interact with them both and have found them to be outstanding young men — very kind, caring and sensitive. They are, to me, the epitome of great basketball.

Coverage cost To the editor: There are two sides to President Obama’s health care “reform.” Many say that it is beneficial to our country, yet there are countless facts that say otherwise. I believe the main cause of our nation’s health care problem is the government’s interference. Think about it this way: Obama’s health care project will require you to spend 12 percent of your income to buy your health care coverage. This goes without any federal subsidy. Although this percent varies depending on your income, you are still losing a significant amount of money each year. Brett Williams, Lawrence

Education cuts To the editor: “Let’s cut funding for education” is the new mantra in the state of Kansas, if not the United States. After all, why should we educate our youth and prepare them for the technical future that awaits them when we can just hire a graduate from another country where they take education seriously and provide the funding required. Why have music and art in the public schools when we can get all we want to see and hear from European or Asian artists on TV. Why learn a second language when business leaders and students from other countries can already speak two or three languages, including English. After all, if we properly fund education, we may have to roll back some of the tax breaks we have given to corporations and the upper income levels within the state of Kansas and the good old U.S. of A. Now we can’t have that, can we? Bruce W. Johanning, Lawrence

YOUR TURN

What is the price of not going to college? By Patricia N. Long President, Baker University

A quality education inspires a passion for learning that forms the bedrock of a prosperous and healthy society. Every student deserves an opportunity to build a better future. As president of Kansas’ first university, I am most concerned that reducing federal financial aid for low-income students will limit those dreams. If we do not safeguard the resources used to help individuals with the most need, the impact will deeply affect our nation’s intellectual and social capital. While I sympathize with the difficult task Congress faces of balancing the budget to bring down the deficit, I also believe it is imperative that we weigh the impact of cuts limiting access for students who wish to further their education. The ongoing debate about the relative value of higher education continues. Is the investment worth it? Are hard skills more important than a well-rounded education? Will a college degree prepare graduates for 21st century jobs? These questions are understandable given the challenges of our economic recovery. However, the most pressing debate before us should be whether we can afford not to give every student a chance to fulfill the American vision. A recent study by the College-

Board Advisory and Policy Center confirms the benefits of a higher education: ● Individuals with higher levels of education earn more and are more likely to be employed. Their median after-tax earnings were 16 percent higher. ● Federal, state and local governments enjoy increased tax revenues from college graduates and spend less on income support programs for them. ● College education leads to healthier lifestyles, reducing health care Long costs for individuals and for society. ● Adults with higher levels of education are more active citizens. ● College-educated parents engage in more educational activities with their children, who are better prepared for school than other children. By 2018, the Georgetown University Center on Education and the work force forecasts we will need 22 million new people with college degrees and at least 4.7 million new workers with postsecondary certificates. From 1973 to 2008, the United States saw a 30 percent increase in jobs requiring a postsecondary education.

Over the past few years, public and private institutions have worked to keep tuition increases to a minimum, reduced spending and adopted innovative business strategies in order to protect their primary academic mission. Colleges and universities serve as the economic, cultural and social drivers for their regions while local economies rely on a robust and diverse student population to enrich the financial health of their communities. Fewer overall students will have far-reaching effects not only to our colleges and universities but also on our cities and towns. What is at stake for our nation? Pell, SEOG and LEAP are more than just financial aid acronyms for low-income students. They form a crucial network of grants and low-interest loans funded from federal, state and postsecondary institutions and put a college degree within reach for some of our most deserving and promising future leaders. Proposals in Congress would reduce the Pell grant by 15 percent and eliminate SEOG, LEAP and additional programs like the Federal Perkins Loan Program, which provide supplementary government-backed loans as a reasonable alternative. The loss of any avenue of support could well mean the end of many college careers. The high rate of unemployment today has

many families struggling to close the gap on financing an education. The Federal Advisory Committee on Student Assistance released findings that point to the decline in financial aid as a leading cause for reduced enrollments and waning graduation rates for lowincome students. At Baker alone, this change could impact the ability of one out of every four students to complete a degree. With record shortages anticipated in the nursing and teaching fields, it is crucial that we provide the necessary means for student success. The strength of our nation will be determined by an educated workforce ready to harness the power of innovation and compete in the global economy. The value of a lifelong passion for learning cannot be measured. At Baker University, we say education is personal. It certainly has been for me and for many of the students I have had the opportunity to know. Although my parents did not attend college, they understood the importance of an education and its ability to change the lives of generations to come. They made sure my sisters and I had those opportunities. By writing about this issue today, I am asking all of us to consider the greater cost to society if many of our citizens lose the opportunity to increase their knowledge and contribute to our world.

United Way raises $1.6M so far in 2011 Members of the United Way of Douglas County gathered at Maceli’s Wednesday night for its annual leadership reception and campaign celebration where leaders announced that the organization has raised $1.6 million so far this year. That amount means the United Way of Douglas County will be able to continue to fund groups at the same level it did last year, despite the economy. “It’s been a difficult year for fundrasing, but we have so many people, volunteers and donors who have just stepped up to the plate and done what they could,” Beverly Smith Billings, 2010 campaign chair, said. “I think it really has been a tough year for everyone, the economic recovery has been very slow, but I’m very pleased with the success that we’ve had today because I know everyone worked as hard as they could.” Smith Billings passed on the position of chair to next year’s co-chairs, Beth and Val Stella. “It’s just been such a wonderful experience to see and experience the stepping up of this community, whether it’s through time or whether it’s through donating,” she said. “I’m always impressed with the city of Lawrence.”

Firebirds enjoying turnaround

There’s just something about a son or daughter’s high school years that makes parents go wild. They take pictures before prom, chronicle accomplishments in scrapbooks and brag non-stop to their friends. That’s what made the 200809 Free State High boys basketball season so tough for so many parents and, in turn, what makes this year so special for those same people. At first glance, this year’s FSHS squad looks like any other prep hoops team enjoying a pretty good season. During warm-ups the Firebirds look loose, laughing, smiling, pumped about what lies ahead. In games, the team transforms and plays with tenacity, passion and pride. It wasn’t always this way for three of Free State’s four seniors. Far from it. Two years ago, as sophomores, Alec Heline, Evan Manning and Eric Watson battled uphill night after night, charged with the task of helping the Firebirds’ varsity squad win games. It didn’t happen. Victorious in the first game of the season, FSHS finished 1-20 and was forced to endure one of the toughest prep seasons in recent memory. While Heline, Manning and Watson suffered serious blows to their self-esteem with each loss, they weren’t the only ones who buckled in for that bumpy ride. They weren’t the only ones hurting. “It was real rough,” said Scott Watson, father of Eric, who leads the 11-8 Firebirds in scoring. “The growing pains of watching them lose was hard. It was just a matter of him surviving the losses and not letting them get in his head.” Throughout the years, coaches in the toughest of times continually have uttered these same words when talking about how their athletes handle losses: “The good thing about young kids is they’re resilient.” They’re right. Though the losing was tough for those three young men, the pain of that disappointing season hit the parents as hard if not harder. “I gotta tell you, it is nicer being a kid than it is being a parent,” said Alec’s father, Jeff Heline, recalling that 2008-09 season. “He’d be down the night of a game, but then he’d bounce back the next day. In the mind of a 15-16-year-old, they’re really not thinking much past 3 o’clock most of the time. So this year has been great. He’s the happiest I’ve ever seen him.” Added Heline’s mother, Sandi: “I think he talks more about it now than he did then. Basketball’s something he always really enjoyed, so it was hard to watch. But this year, it’s been a 180degree turnaround and it’s a lot of fun. It doesn’t even stress me out.” That’s what makes this year’s run so exciting. They’re seniors. One way or another they’re going out on a good note. All three of them deserve that. In some small way, this makes up for the struggle of two seasons ago. The Watsons also talk about basketball more now than they did during Eric’s sophomore year. A few days after Christmas, Eric and Scott went to lunch and, between bites, the comparison came up. “For some reason, I just asked him, ‘Are you having more fun this year than you did your sophomore year?’” Scott said. “And he goes, ‘Oh, dad, it’s like night and day.’”

Free State, LHS girls prepare for matchup By Clark Goble Journal-World Sports Writer

Before practice this afternoon, the Free State girls basketball team will crowd into coach Bryan Duncan’s classroom and thoroughly dissect the Lions from Lawrence High. Duncan will analyze the Lions’ offensive sets, their offensive tendencies, and the shooting abilities of all the players likely to see time, among other things. Seemingly no facet of the Lions’ game will go untouched in the thirty-minute session, which Duncan called Basketball 101. Junior Lynn Robinson knows she better pay attention, both so she can gain an edge in the city showdown on Friday and avoid Duncan’s ire.

“He actually did say last time that next year, he’s going to make it a requirement to take notes,” Robinson said.

Tipoff is set for 6 p.m. Because the Firebirds (9-10) and Lions (6-13) have already met this season — Free State won 44-35 in The Jungle — proper preparation might actually be the difference.

When preparing his team for its next opponent, Lawrence High coach Nick Wood covers most of the same things that Duncan covers. He f inds that when his team adheres to the scouting report, it can be very beneficial. Wood also uses JV players — the “scout team” — to provide his varsity players with a look at what the opponent might do on offense or defense. He’s careful to not overload the varsity players with numbers and tendencies, though. “You don’t want to give them too much to think about,” Wood said. Duncan echoed that sentiment, Please see SHOWDOWN, page 3B

Kansas University basketball coach Bill Self chatted with his new starting point guard on Wednesday afternoon. “Elijah made shots the other night. I told him today, ‘I couldn’t care less about you making shots,’’’ Self said, revealing his message to sophomore Elijah Johnson, who scored 15 points off 5-of-6 shooting (4-for-4 from three) in Monday’s 92-65 home victory over Oklahoma State. “It was the best point guard defense we’ve had in a long time,” Self added of Johnson’s work on Johnson OSU’s Keaton Page, who scored two points off 2-of-11 shooting. “I thought his whole focus was guarding Page. You focus on the right things and what do you do? You shoot the ball better. Guys that worry about making shots, they don’t make them. Guys that worry about doing the right things make shots. “A perfect example is Elijah making the most of his opportunity,” Self added of Johnson, who opened for junior Tyshawn Taylor, who remains on indefinite suspension heading into Saturday’s 3 p.m. game at Oklahoma. “He is our starter. I mean there is no doubt about that. Whether or not he remains a starter for how long, who knows? We’re going to Norman ... he’s going to have the ball in his hands, so we’ll see how that goes.” Johnson has started two games this season. “That’s a point all fans around here think about and study it because starting is so important (to fans). To me it’s not,” Self said, “but I do think when you start, you usually think there’s more rope — that you have a chance to maybe play through mistakes more than if you come off the bench.” Asked about Taylor on Wednesday’s Hawk Talk radio show ... Self didn’t reveal how many games he’d miss for violating team rules. He did respond to a question regarding Monday’s ESPN coverage of the KU-OSU game. According to a Hawk Talk questioner, ESPN sideline reporter Holly Rowe reported that she spoke with Taylor, who said his suspension was no big deal and he’d be back soon. Self said Taylor merely meant the suspension was not seasonending. He said the penalized player definitely did consider this situation a “big deal.” “It’s probably a big deal when he (Taylor) is in my office and is so emotional he can’t come to grips with what is going on because he knows he made a mistake and let everybody down. You don’t see that,” Self said of the moment Taylor learned he was suspended. “The interviewer in this situation didn’t mean anything negative. She was trying to refer to, ‘Is this going to be a season-ending deal?’ Which it is not. It’s not, but still I can hold judgment or reserve the right to determine when (he’ll play again). When people get out of that, ‘He doesn’t care,’ that’s the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard.” Of the suspension, Self said: “Why can’t people just accept the fact, ‘Hey, a kid 21-years-old screwed up?’ The worst thing that could happen is if you let it Please see JAYHAWKS, page 3B

Wildcats hold off Huskers, 61-57 The Associated Press

Big 12 Men Kansas State 61, Nebraska 57 LINCOLN , N EB . — The guy who made waves a month ago when he said he wouldn’t play in the NIT keeps doing all he can to make Kansas State worthy of an NCAA tournament bid. Jacob Pullen scored 20 of his 27 points in the second half and the Wildcats held off Nebraska’s late comeback attempt to win Wednesday night. The Wildcats (19-9, 7-6) won for the fifth time in six games and took sole possession of fifth place in the Big 12. Nebraska (18-9, 6-7), coming off its weekend upset of No. 5 Texas, lost for the first time in four games and had a dent put in its NCAA hopes. “I feel like the way we’ve played lately, we can beat most of the teams in the Big 12,” Pullen said. “We want to play like this through February because it gives us a head of steam going into the Big 12 tournament. That tournament is three days and up for grabs. We can still win a Big 12 (tournament) championship and then go to the (NCAA) tournament.” Eshaunte Jones’ three-pointer pulled the Cornhuskers within 5856 with 7.1 seconds left. Martavious Irving made one of two free throws on the other end to give the Wildcats a three-point lead. Lance Jeter, who led the Huskers with 11 points, went to the line for Nebraska with 4.7 seconds left. He made the first free throw, then intentionally missed the second but didn’t hit the rim, giving possession to K-State.

BRIEFLY Hawks get ex-Jayhawk Hinrich ATLANTA — The struggling Atlanta Hawks acquired guard Kirk Hinrich from Washington in a five-player trade Wednesday, upgrading their backcourt for the playoff run. The Hawks also received forward Hilton Armstrong in exchange for guard Mike Bibby, rookie guard Jordan Crawford, swingman Maurice Evans and a first-round pick in this year’s draft. “We felt we had a good opportunity to improve our ballclub by adding Kirk and Hilton,” Hawks general manager Rick Sund said. “Kirk is a well-rounded player that gives us options at both guard positions.”

realizing that his team of young and mostly inexperienced players is still learning that you have to guard people differently depending on their abilities. Robinson said that her younger teammates didn’t really use the scouting report to their advantage a couple months ago, but they’re learning. “Towards the end of the season, you realize that it actually helps to know who the shooters are and who can do what,” Robinson said.

Pointing out the opponent’s three-point shooters is often a main focus of the Firebirds’ reports, in large part because the Firebirds are a small team that often has to double team in the post. Duncan and his staff chart the opponent’s three-point shots, so they can determine which players can help in the post and which should stay tightly with the shooter. Other scouting factors will come into play on Friday, including the fact that many of the Firebirds and Lions have played on the same teams in the summer. Wood and Duncan both said that their players often

know more than the coaching staffs about the players on the other city team. It’s a rivalry game, so it always means something, but the outcome won’t affect either team’s substate matchup. The Lions will play at Olathe Northwest and the Firebirds will play Topeka High next Thursday. Because the Lions just played Olathe Northwest, they’ll already have a pretty good grasp on the Ravens. Free State didn’t play Topeka this season, but Duncan has already acquired two game tapes from coaches outside the Sunflower League. “That’s one of the advan-

I know she is still saying things behind my back, because my younger sister gets into arguments with her about it. Do you have any suggestions? — Desperate for a Mother’s Love

Marcy Sugar and Kathy Mitchell

Dear Annie: I am a 21-yearold female looking for my mother’s approval. My biological mother left when I was a baby, and my stepmother has been my mom since I was 6 months old. We never really got along while I was growing up. I have tried repeatedly to have a relationship with her, but I always catch her saying bad things about me to my family. Now they all think ill of me. I wasn’t even welcome at last year’s Christmas party. Due to all the nasty things my stepmother has my family believing, I made the decision to stop speaking to her. But

CSI star gets own one-man show on HBO As theatrical events go, one-man shows about historical figures tend to be rather safe. Actors dress up as characters such as Abe Lincoln or Mark Twain and offer witticisms and well-known bromides. Occasionally a performance rises to the level of poignancy, as when Robert Morse (“Mad Men”) performed as Truman Capote in “Tru,” during his decline and as he came to grips with the transgressions that exiled him from his place at the center of New York society. Tonight HBO broadcasts “Thurgood” (8 p.m., HBO), a one-man portrayal of civil rights hero and Supreme Court judge Thurgood Marshall, which earned Laurence Fishburne a Tony nomination. The production, by George Stevens Jr., uses projected photographic images to powerful effect. Like its subject, nothing about “Thurgood” plays it safe, and Fishburne’s performance is shot through with his righteous anger, his sense of both justice and absurdity, and flashes of subversive and mischievous humor. Just as “Thurgood” stands out among one-man shows, this production rises above much of the material broadcast and re-broadcast during Black History Month. At a time when a black American resides in the White House and a black actor like Fishburne stars on “CSI,” one of television’s sturdiest franchises, it’s still a mistake to think that something like Black History Month has outlived its purpose. “Thurgood” offers one man’s life, entertainingly presented, as a reminder of how short a time has passed since people were denied the right to vote or the right to attend decent schools or to live without being humiliated, murdered or terrorized all because of the color of their skin. ● Can you name the director with the m o s t O s c a r n o m i n a t i o n s? Wi l l i a m Wyler holds the record with 12. His films are celebrated tonight on TCM, including “Dodsworth” (7 p.m., TCM), “Ben Hur” (9 p.m.) and “The Collector” (3 a.m.).

Tonight’s other highlights ● The top 20 talents are unveiled on “American Idol” (7 p.m., Fox). ● Signs of an apparent zombie outbreak on “CSI” (8 p.m., CBS). ● A salesman (David Koechner) wants to come in from the cold on “The Office” (8 p.m., NBC). ● A patient’s true diagnosis proves elusive on the season finale of “Royal Pains” (8 p.m., USA). ● A murder suspect appears to be too close for comfort on “The Mentalist” (9 p.m., CBS). ● A fired inventor loses the patent to his creation on “Fairly Legal” (9 p.m., USA). ● Lost in the jungle on “Out of the Wild: Venezuela” (9 p.m., Discovery). Cult choice A jewel heist goes terribly awry in director Quentin Tarantino’s stylishly violent and frequently funny 1992 crime drama “Reservoir Dogs” (9:15 p.m., IFC). The film used soft-rock hits of the 1970s to grisly effect, most notably “Stuck in the Middle with You” by Stealers Wheel.

JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS For Thursday, Feb. 24: This year, you need to harness your talents in order to deliver in a more substantial way at work or within your community. If you are single, you have a lot to offer, but you might not want to settle down yet. If you are attached, as a couple you become more visible and instrumental in the community. Sagittarius knows how to push your buttons. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You'll Have: 5Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult Aries (March 21-April 19) ★★★★★ Reach out for new ideas. No one can be an expert in all matters. Finding an expert in various areas when you need one demonstrates your intelligence. Tonight: Be impulsive. Taurus (April 20-May 20) ★★★★★ A key professional partner points to a new direction. Don't worry; this person picks up wherever there is a lack or where you might let a detail drop. Tonight: Indulge a loved one. Gemini (May 21-June 20) ★★★★★ Others carry out your ideas, but they also add their own flair. If you want something done 100 percent as you

want it, you'd better count on doing it yourself. Tonight: Where the action is. Cancer (June 21-July 22) ★★★ Throw yourself into a project, and you will accomplish a lot, and quite quickly at that.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) ★★★★ Pressure builds about a domestic or personal matter (at least in your head). A partner's unexpected actions could force you to rethink an association. Tonight: Head home. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) ★★★★★ Your words flow and hopefully are well received. You have a way of saying even difficult matters in a way that people will accept. Tonight: Hanging out with a coworker. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) ★★★ Be aware of your finances, but also understand that you have a lot more to offer than just

Dear Annie: My boyfriend and I have been together for three years. We are compatible in every way but one. He feels compelled to run to the aid of his single, female neighbor, even though she has a boyfriend. He watches her dog, fixes her fence, helps with clogged drains, etc. I’ve told him this makes me uncomfortable. I feel he is sending the wrong message, enabling her to rely upon him and creating a bond. I want him to stop volunteering his services. He thinks I am making a big deal out of nothing. He says he likes to help people. A similar situation happened two years ago with a different single, female neighbor, and I found a flirtatious note from her on his door. I don’t believe anything happened between them, but the neighbor apparently hoped something would. I think he craves the adoration and wants women to idolize and praise him for coming to their rescue. Am I being petty, or is my boyfriend playing me for a fool? — Concerned Girlfriend
