Kansas and Missouri to play their final regular season basketball game Saturday By Andy Hyland

As Kansas and Missouri prepare to meet on the basketball court for the 267th time Saturday, it might just be the last (in the regular season, anyway), thanks to conference realignment. Here’s a by-the-numbers look at the long rivalry:

$1,500: The highest asking price for a ticket to the game on on Thursday. The lowest amount you could spend to get in the gates at Allen Fieldhouse? A mere $300.

26: When the series began in 1907, Teddy Roosevelt was serving as the United States’ 26th president.

34-31: The score of the very first game in the rivalry. Missouri’s first basketball coach, Isadore Anderson, got the best of KU’s James Naismith on March 11, 1907, in Lawrence. The very next day, the two teams played again, and the Tigers did even better, getting the best of KU, 34-12. It went downhill from there for Missouri fans, though, as KU won the next seven.

50: Highest point total from a single player in the rivalry. Bud Stallworth scored 50 points in Allen Fieldhouse in 1972 in a 93-80 KU victory.

17: The number of MisWILLIAM souri head coaches who have QUANTRILL coached in the rivalry, not countraided ing interims. Norm Stewart coached Lawrence in in the most games, and the Allen 1863. Fieldhouse crowd finally got him to sit down —in a rocking chair no less — in 2003.

8: Number of Kansas coaches who have coached against Missouri. Current coach Bill Self’s teams are 17-4.

14: The number of KU NBA players who participated in the

143: The estimated number of people killed in William Quantrill’s Aug. 21, 1863, raid on Lawrence that can be seen as the event that started all this animosity in the first place.

TOPEKA — Kansas Democrats succeeded Thursday in getting approval of $90 million in property tax reductions as Republicans jumped on board the plan after first turning up their noses at it. “We cut $90 million in property taxes. That’s a winwin for everybody,” said state Rep. Jim Ward, D-Wichita. But any bipartisan spirit quickly soured when several Republicans in the GOPcontrolled House said the felt they had been tricked by Ward. Ward offered his proposal as an amendment to a bill highly prized by Republicans: House Bill 2212, which would restrict property tax increases if overall property valuations increased. During debate, House Majority Leader Arlen Siegfreid, R-Olathe, told Republicans “to go ahead and vote for this amendment and provide that little bit of relief for local counties.” Siegfried added, “The underlying bill will actually solve the problem Please see TAX, page 2A

TOPEKA — A proposed state constitutional amendment aimed at challenging the federal health care reform law fell one vote short Thursday of getting on the November ballot. The Kansas Senate voted 26-14 for the so-called Health Care Freedom Amendment, but that was one vote less than the two-thirds majority required to put propositions on the ballot. State Sen. Mary Pilcher-Cook, R-Shawnee, who has been pushing for the amendment since the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act was approved in 2010, said the state constitutional Please see SENATE, page 2A

DEATHS L.L. HOUSTON Lou passed away on February 16, 2012, at the age of 71, surrounded by his loving wife, children, and son-in-law. He left us just short of his 50th wedding anniversary. He was a well-respected, and accomplished scientist (Biochemist), and did his research in both Academia (University of Kansas), and the bio-tech industry on the West Coast. His cancer research with world leading researchers like himself was done in Europe, Asia, and the U.S. He particularly enjoyed his time living with his family in Basel, Switzerland. Lou made friends wherever he went. He was an interesting man to say the least. We appreciated his sharp mind, driven nature, and that he loved to tell a good story. He was a kind and generous man who loved to have people to dinner. Lou cultivated lifelong friendships, and along with his wife created a loving family. He was dedicated to his wife, Teri, and children, Leslie (Alex), and Scott (Shelly).

He was an adoring Granpa to Sierra, Sam, Isaac, and Cole. He was intensely proud of Houston his children and grandchildren, to whom he passed on his sense of curiosity, intelligence, and creativity. Lou fiercely and courageously survived his cancer for eleven years. He truly did not want to leave us. We are grateful for his courage, tenacity, and his love. We will sorely miss him but cherish the memories he has left us, and treasure the family he created. Per his request, there will be no funeral. Donations in Lou’s memory if you wish may be made to Hospice of Kitsap County, P.O. Box 3416, Silverdale, WA 98383.

ed to consider the disputed law and is expected to issue a ruling as early as June. State Sen. John Vratil, R-Leawood, said it was unclear whether the language of the amendment could be construed to prohibit elderly Kansans from participating in Medicare. Pilcher-Cook denied that was the case. The proposed amendment would have added a new section to the state constitution saying no law or rule shall force an individual or employer to buy health insurance — a challenge to the federal law’s requirement that most Americans purchase insurance, starting in 2014. Six Republicans joined all eight Democrats to stop the measure. The House adopted the proposed amendment last year.


amendment would protect Kansans. “It prohibits government coercion to force people to be in a governmental health care system that they don’t want to be part of,” she said. “This relates to the liberty of Kansas citizens.” But opponents said the amendment was disingenuous because the federal law would be decided by the U.S. Supreme Court. “This is nothing more than, looks good, feels good,” said state Sen. Tim Owens, R-Overland Park. State Sen. Laura Kelly, D-Topeka, said state law can’t trump federal law. Others argued there was no reason to consider such an amendment since the U.S. Supreme Court has already decid-




United Way meets goal, starts planning for future By Alex Garrison

The United Way of Douglas County met its fundraising goal of $1,700,000 for the 20112012 campaign. The group had its annual meeting Thursday at Maceli’s, 1031 N.H., where President Peter Luckey recognized community groups that gave to the organization and announced its 2012 and 2013 community goals. Highlights of the campaign included a combined corporate and employee gift of more than $100,000 from Hallmark Cards and an anonymous donor, campaign director Colleen Gregoire said. Seven of 13 Douglas County divisions — those representing Baldwin City, Douglas County management, Lawrence Memorial Hospital, Lecompton, area professionals, small business and Kansas University — exceeded their fundraising goal or raised more than they did last year.

But later, Republicans discovered that Ward’s amendment was actually a “gut and go,” meaning that it eliminated the underlying bill. State Rep. Steve Brunk, R-Wichita, the sponsor of the underlying bill, wasn’t happy about that. “You expect collegiality and forthrightness,” Brunk said. “In this case, unfortunately that didn’t happen.” When explaining his amendment to the House, Ward did not say it was a “gut and go.” When asked why, Ward said because no one asked him. “There was no trickery. I took the underlying bill — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild out and replaced it with a can be reached at 785-423-0668. clean vote on tax relief,” Ward said.

Leadership givers, those who give $750 or more annually, gave more than $650,000, or 38 percent of the total raised. The allocation process for the $1,700,000 raised is going on now and will conclude next month, Gregoire said. United Way raises money for area human services groups. At the meeting, new board members were announced and officially elected. They include Dennis Anderson, who is managing editor of the Lawrence Journal-World, Marsha Buhler, Marguerite Carlson and Omofolabo Ajayi-Soyinka. The president-elect for the 2012-2013 campaign year is Bryan Culver; the vicepresident-elect is Amy Kelly; and the secretaryelect is Beth Stella. Luckey announced that the United Way’s community goals for 2012 and 2013 are improving educa-

tion, self-sufficiency and health in Douglas County. He stressed the importance education has in improving lives and leading people out of poverty. Funding for programs under the education goal will begin this year while plans for improving self-sufficiency are being developed. Under the larger goal of self-sufficiency, the United Way, according to a media release about its goals, plans to work with its community partners to identify programs that help individuals and families have:

Access to food, shelter and income support

Access to employment

Access to affordable housing

Financial literacy The health goals will be the focus in 2013, though many of the county’s human services groups are already working together to improve efficiency for clients in this area, Gregoire said. — Reporter Alex Garrison can be reached at 832-7261. Follow her at

Cottonwood honors Rep. Yoder By Karrey Britt

Congressman Kevin Yoder gave high-fives to individuals with developmental disabilities Thursday morning after they performed “Home on the Range” and “America the Beautiful” for him. They were members of a choir at Lawrence’s Cottonwood Inc., which employs and provides services for about 300 people with developmental disabilities. Cottonwood honored Yoder, a Republican from the 3rd District, with an AbilityOne Champion award for advocating on its behalf. “Thank you for your support and all that you do to help us,” Cottonwood CEO Sharon Spratt said in front of about 100 Cottonwood — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild employees and a handful of can be reached at 785-423-0668. board members.

increased 65 percent over the last decade, while incomes have either remained stagnant or declined,” said House Democratic Leader Paul Davis of Lawrence. “We are pleased that House Republicans acknowledged the need to address the rising property tax crisis in Kansas.” Just two days earlier, the Republican-controlled House defeated a plan by Democrats to provide $45 million in property tax relief. What happens next on taxes is up in the air. Gov. Sam Brownback, a Republican, and House GOP leaders have proposed differing plans on cutting state income taxes. Both proposals, however, would increase the tax liability for lowincome Kansans. Critics of the plans also say they would limit revenues needed to provide essential state services.



from junior high to high school. Before this school year, she had taught at Southwest Junior High, where she had been since the school opened in 1995. Despite her three decades of teaching, she exudes the enthusiasm of a new teacher, Free State Principal Ed West said. “She still hasn’t lost the passion and energy for teaching. She has approached each day as if it was the first,” West said. The energy of puppies times 10, is how one student described Renick, Superintendent Rick Doll told Free State staff. Renick energizes any room she walks into, whether it’s a classroom or a meeting room, said her former principal at Southwest, Trish Bransky. One example is the way Renick reads to her students. “It was in a way you could not not pay attention,” Bransky recalled. “She has a very expressive way about her that draws attention to the lesson.” For her part, Renick said there’s a reason she has so much enthusiasm in the classroom. “It is hard to make English fun. If I come in with a ton of energy, at least they’ll respond to that and are willing to put up with the grammar,” she said.

Soldiers use the straps to move supplies on trucks, ships and planes, and Cottonwood is the sole producer of them. Last year, Cottonwood produced more than 600,000. “I think it’s a win-win program,” Yoder said. “We are able to put folks to work with meaningful activities that actually produce goods that are used by our troops around the During vocabulary lessons, Renick pushes her students by using words that Bransky, who was an English major, said even she had to look up. “She has a way of making kids strive for the next level,” Bransky said. As part of the honor, Renick received a $1,000 check from KU Credit Union and will be nominated to the Kansas State Department of Education’s Kansas Teacher of the Year program. And her photo, Hawaiian shirt and all, will be on display at the district office.

world and at an affordable rate. I think it’s just the type of program that shows a great partnership between the federal government and private industry.” Cottonwood has received a five-year U.S. Department of Defense contract to make the straps since 1999. It’s in its third year of a five-year contract, which provides jobs like sewing, labeling and packing for between 30 and 60 people each day. After the ceremony, longtime employee Susan Boose was working with a machine that sealed the packaging of the straps. She said she enjoyed her job and described it as a great way to earn money. “It’s fun,” she said with a smile. — Health reporter Karrey Britt can be reached at 832-7190.

In the running Each year, the Kansas State Department of Education accepts nominations for Kansas Teacher of the Year. Each school district can nominate one elementary and one secondary classroom teacher for the award. This year, Lawrence public schools has nominated Woodland secondgrade teacher Marilou Cavin and Free State High School English teacher Lynne Renick.

Celebrating Black History Month with music

String of break-ins reported at KU lot Kansas University police officers have taken reports of three Wednesday break-ins of vehicles parked in the KU Park and Ride lot on West Campus. Assistant Chief Chris Keary said in each of the three crimes a suspect broke a window and removed items. The first one occurred between 8:45 a.m. and 4 p.m. Wednesday and involved a loss of $340. The second was between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., as a suspect broke the window and stole the victim’s purse for a total loss of $662. In the third, suspects broke a window and stole $200 worth of items, including a purse and camera. Keary said the victim estimated the broken window was valued at $2,000. The break-ins were reported in the lot in the 2000 block of Constant Avenue.


Input sought on 6th St. By Chad Lawhorn

Resident indicted on gun charge A federal grand jury in Kansas City, Kan., has indicted a 28-year-old Lawrence man on a federal gun charge, according to U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom’s office. Eric A. Reed Jr. is charged with unlawful possession of a firearm after having a felony conviction. Reed was arrested early on Dec. 9 near 15th and Iowa streets and accused of firing a gun from a vehicle outside Taste Lounge, Bar and Grill, 804 W. 24th St. He was charged in Douglas County District Court with aggravated assault and criminal possession of a firearm. According to the indictment, he was convicted in 2008 in Douglas County for attempted criminal possession of a firearm and cocaine possession. Douglas County prosecutors dropped their charges so federal authorities could pursue a case. Reed faces a maximum of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine on the federal charge.

KU researcher: Lifestyles to blame for depression ‘epidemic’ By Karrey Britt

The number of Americans who suffer from depression has increased 20-fold in the past century. Today, the serious illness will affect one in four adults by age 75. “We have an epidemic of mental illness,” said Stephen Ilardi, a clinical researcher in the depart-

ment of psychology at Kansas University. He believes the increase is a result of our lifestyles. “We were never designed for the sedentary, indoor, socially isolated, sleep-deprived, fast-food laden, frenzied pace of modern life,” he said.

Ilardi, who has written a book, “The Depression Cure,” and treated hundreds of depressed patients, gave a two-hour program called “Banish the Blues” Thursday at the Lawrence Senior Center that was attended by 110 people. Ilardi said the rate of depression has continued to rise despite

spending billions of dollars on antidepressant drugs. Through research he has created an alternative treatment borrowed from elements of the primitive human lifestyle: exercise, a diet rich in omega-3 fatty acids, adequate sunlight exposure, healthy sleep, Please see DEPRESSION, page 4A

Figuring out the need for new roads, traffic signals and other transportation improvements near Sixth Street and the South Lawrence Trafficway will be the subject of a public meeting next week. The Kansas Department of Transportation will host a public meeting to receive input on a transportation plan for the 1.5 mile area along Sixth Street/U.S. Highway 40 between George Williams Way and East 800 Road. The open house-style meeting will be from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Thursday at Langston Hughes School, 1101 George Williams Way. The city, the county and the state are teaming up to complete the $100,000 study in order to ensure that traffic continues to move smoothly in the area as development increases, KDOT officials said in a statement. The study will examine possible improvements to existing roads, potential right-of-way purchases for future roads, and issues related to business and residential access points along the corridor. Lawrence-based BG Consultants is providing the engineering work for the study. Engineers at the meeting will present several concepts, and state officials will be seeking public comment on draft recommendations. The final report is expected to be completed by late spring.

Roberts’ office gets suspicious letter WICHITA — The FBI is investigating a suspicious letter sent to the downtown Wichita office of Sen. Pat Roberts, one of several congressional offices around the country receiving similar letters in recent days. KWCH-TV reports the letter containing a white, powdery substance arrived at the office Thursday. Traffic was restricted in the area while police and hazardous materials crews investigated. The FBI says no hazardous material has been found so far in similar letters sent to district offices of members of Congress around the country. Roberts’ communications director, Sarah Little, says the Kansas Republican was in Topeka on Thursday, and two staff members were in the Wichita office. Little says the office will reopen today.

Children’s choir leader to enter hall of fame By Christine Metz

More than 20 years ago, Janeal Krehbiel took a gamble that Lawrence could be more than just a sports town. With her sister Marilyn Epp, she founded the Lawrence Children’s Choir. Today, it is a nationally recognized organization that Krehbiel has more than 200 singers, five choirs and has been on three European tours. “I truly never dreamed we would get this far and do these sorts of things and have these venues,” said Krehbiel, who is the choir’s artistic director. On Saturday, Krehbiel will be inducted into the Kansas Music Educators Association’s Hall of Fame. It will be the first of many tributes paid to Krehbiel as she heads toward retirement in the coming weeks. “It is becoming very emotional,” Krehbiel said about the series of concerts that are in the works. On Sunday, there will be a concert featuring the senior choir, which has members ages 76 and older, and the organization’s two youngest choirs, Cadenza and Capo, held at 4 p.m. at Plymouth Congre-

gational Church. On March 11, Krehbiel will conduct her last concert in Lawrence. The concert, which will be at 5 p.m. at Lawrence High School, will celebrate Krehbiel’s work. Krehbiel will go out on a high note on April 1 as she conducts her last concert at New York City’s Carnegie Hall as part of the The New York City Chamber Orchestra and Festival Choruses. Along with members of Lawrence Children’s Choir, the concert will have about 230 students from across the country. It will be Krehbiel’s third time conducting in the world famous music venue. “I feel very fortunate to make that the final concert. It is a spectacular place to sing and also a very prestigious place to sing,” she said. Carolyn Welch, longtime assistant artistic director, will replace Krehbiel as artistic director. While Krehbiel said she plans to spend her free time attempting to relax, she already has booked concerts where she’ll be the honorary choir director and plans to continue giving clinics and seminars. “It has been a dream come true in a lot of ways,” she said of the last two decades. — Reporter Christine Metz can be reached at 832-6352.

enhanced social connection and anti-ruminative activities. The treatment, called Therapeutic Lifestyle Change, is being studied at KU, and so far the results have been promising, Ilardi said. He said the chances of relapse are far less than for those who take medications. He said the symptoms of depression can include changes in appetite, difficulty in concentrating, sleep problems, loss of interest in activities once enjoyed, fatigue and thoughts of death or suicide. He said, for example, a depressed person will see only clouds and gray on a bright, sunny day while a friend might acknowledge the sunset, birds, green grass and warmth of the sun. “They just don’t see it,” he said about a depressed person. Ilardi said one of the best things anyone can do is exercise because it stimulates important brain chemicals. He encourages people to find activities they enjoy like walking the dog, gardening or playing basketball. On average, he said, people walk eight miles a day at Walt Disney World. “They are thinking about things they want to do,” he said. “If you look at a piece of workout equipment and something is screaming out, ‘Don’t get on it,’ that’s because it’s unnatural.” Ilardi said it can be nearly impossible for someone who is depressed to have the motivation to exercise, so he encourages them to find support. In the KU treatment study, patients are assigned to a personal trainer who sets up an appointment, calls them and holds them accountable until they can get back on their feet. Among his other tips:

Shut off all lights at least 45 minutes before going to bed for better sleep.

Join a church or club because social connectivity is healthy. He said a study found half of today’s Americans say they don’t have a close friend.

Take an omega-3 supplement that has 1,000 milligrams of eicosapentaenoic acid or EPA. It’s important to read the labels because many capsules will have one-sixth of that amount in them. He said it’s best to check with a doctor before taking any supplement. Betty Chapin, 70, of Lawrence, said she attended Ilardi’s presentation because “it’s not talked about anywhere else.” She has suffered from

depression on and off for years and was institutionalized for about a week 20 years ago. Chapin said a friend helped her through it by treating her no differently than before and simply walking and talking with her. She wishes there wasn’t such a stigma with the disease and that more people talked about it. “I fight it today but nothing like I did then,” she said. That’s because she attends therapy, exercises and “tries to keep busy.” “I’ve learned so much about it and I’m thankful that I have.” — Health reporter Karrey Britt can be reached at 832-7190.

TOPEKA — A bill that could reduce benefits to some unemployed Kansans while cutting unemployment rates paid by new employers was approved Thursday in the Kansas House. Republicans touted House Bill 2638 as a way to increase new business activity in Kansas, while Democrats said the measure was “crazy.” It was approved 85-39. Under the bill, if a jobless person receives a single lump-sum separation or severance payment, then weekly unemployment benefits would be postponed for a period of time commensurate with the number of weeks of compensation that the lump sum would represent. And for new employers, the bill, supported by the Kansas Chamber of Com-

merce, would reduce the unemployment insurance contribution rate. State Rep. Mike Slattery, D-Mission, said that because Kansas was borrowing daily from the federal government to pay unemployment insurance benefits, it didn’t make sense to cut employer rates. “We are currently not able to meet our UI bills, and yet the bill in front of you will further reduce our ability to pay our UI bills. How does this make sense?” Slattery asked. “This is crazy.” But Rep. Marvin Kleeb, R-Overland Park, disagreed. “This bill is another jobs creation bill for Kansas,” he said. He said the measure will lure more businesses into the state, create more jobs and help the UI fund become solvent. The measure now goes to the Senate for consideration.

KANSAS CITY, MO. — The U.S. Postal Service, hit hard by declining mail volume and revenue, announced plans Thursday to close mail processing centers around the country, including two in Missouri and seven in Kansas that will mean the loss of more than 200 positions. “Consolidating operations is necessary if the Postal Service is to remain viable to provide mail service to the nation,” Chief Operating Officer Megan Brennan said in a statement. Brian Sperry, a Postal Service spokesman in Denver, said more than 200 processing facilities have been targeted for closing nationwide. In Missouri, the Postal Service plans to shift the work from its Springfield distribution and processing facility to its Kansas City distribution center, and move work from the Cape Girardeau distribution center to a site in downtown St. Louis, said Richard Watkins, spokesman for the Postal Service’s regional office in Kansas City. In Kansas, mail processing centers in Hays, Salina, Dodge City, and Hutchinson, would move to the Wichita processing center. The work at the Liberal processing center would be handled in Amarillo, Texas. Work at Topeka’s distribution center would go to the facility in Kansas City, Mo., and the Colby center’s work would shift to the processing center in North Platte, Neb. The closings don’t affect the Postal Service’s retail or business mail units in the Missouri and Kansas locations. No date had been set for the consolidations, but Watkins

said they would not take effect before May 15. “The key is that overall mail volume is down 20 percent,” Watkins said. First-class mail is down 25 percent since 2006, he said. The Springfield closing in Missouri will mean a loss of 65 positions and the Cape Girardeau closing 71 positions, Watkins said. Some transfer opportunities will be available. The Kansas closings would mean a loss of about 100 positions, with several jobs shifting to the sites in Wichita, Nebraska, Texas and Missouri, Sperry said. He estimated the cuts in Kansas alone would save the Postal Service more than $10 million a year. The Postal Service, which forecasts a record $14.1 billion loss by the end of this year, recently said it will lose as much as $18.2 billion a year by 2015 if Congress doesn’t allow it to cut Saturday delivery, slow first-class mail by one day and raise the cost of a postage stamp. Earlier this month, the Postal Service also said its quarterly loss was up to $3.3 billion amid declining mail volume and said it could run out of money by October. The Postal Service is an independent agency of government and is subject to some congressional control. Jan Manlove, secretarytreasurer of the Wichita local of the American Postal Workers Union, said Thursday the cuts would likely contribute to the Postal Service’s decline. “Cuts to the Postal Service will only hasten the problem. It does not help the Postal Service at all,” Manlove said. “It will slow down service, which will encourage more people to not use the Postal Service. It’s sort of a death spiral.”

House passes citizenship bill for voting; Senate cool By John Hanna Associated Press

TOPEKA — Republicans pushed a bill through the Kansas House on Thursday requiring potential voters to prove their U.S. citizenship ahead of this year’s election, although GOP senators are divided on whether the state will be ready to enforce the rule. The House approved the bill, 81-43, with all of the votes for it coming from Republicans. It would impose the proofof-citizenship requirement for people registering to vote for the first time in Kansas starting June 15, more than six months ahead of schedule and in time for the normal surge before a presidential election. Secretary of State Kris Kobach, who introduced the bill, says the rule combats election fraud, but critics believe it will suppress turnout among poor, minority and elderly voters. Legislators approved a proof-of-citizenship rule last year but — at the Senate’s insistence — it’s not scheduled to take effect until Jan. 1, 2013. The Senate has a large GOP majority, but its leaders are less conservative than Kobach and his allies and hesitated to move too quickly to impose the requirement. Top Republican senators said a key issue for them remains a $40 million upgrade of the state Division of Vehicles computer system that handles driver’s licenses. The project will allow the division to store electronic copies of birth certificates and other documents proving a driver’s citizenship and transfer them to election officials. Officials in the Department of Revenue, which

oversees the division, have said repeatedly that they think the system will be ready by Kobach June. But GOP leaders in the Senate want a guarantee, and Ethics and Elections Committee Chairwoman Terrie Huntington, of Fairway, said she’ll probably delay action on Kobach’s bill for several weeks to get such assurances. “It really all centers around the ability of the Department of Revenue to have the motor-vehicle computer system working,” Huntington said. “They’re thinking that it might be, but they cannot guarantee that it will.”

Kobach’s objections Kobach has been frustrated by the focus on the Division of Vehicles computer project, arguing repeatedly that it’s not necessary for it to be finished to move ahead with a proof-ofcitizenship requirement. He said the computer upgrade will result in electronic documents transferred automatically to election officials, saving both them and the vehicles division a small amount of time. “To use the software upgrade as an excuse to vote yea or nay is really silly,” Kobach told The Associated Press. “There may be some misunderstandings by senators about this.” Kobach has said the proof-of-citizenship rule will prevent illegal immigrants and other non-citizens from registering to vote, and it makes sense to have the rule in place ahead of the busiest registration period between presidential elections. His office said it iden-

tified 32 non-citizens on Kansas voter rolls last year. Critics note Kansas has about 1.7 million registered voters and that reported cases of illegal immigrants voting remain rare.

Federal impetus Some GOP senators have no problem with moving up the date of the proof-of-citizenship rule. Sen. Dick Kelsey, a Goddard Republican, said he’s confident that Kansans who will need free birth certificates to prove their citizenship will be able to get them to register, as state law currently provides. But the Division of Vehicles’ computer upgrade is an important issue for other Republicans because they believe its completion will simplify voter registration. Part of the division’s project is a response to a federal law pushing states to verify that residents are living in the U.S. legally before issuing them driver’s licenses. Kansas already requires proof of legal status when it issues a new license, but with the computer upgrade, the same proof will be required the next time anyone in Kansas renews a license. By 2019, every Kansas license is supposed to indicate whether someone is a citizen and the Division of Vehicles must store the supporting documents electronically. Then, a Kansas driver’s license will be one of 13 documents that proves citizenship. Department of Revenue spokeswoman Jeanine Koranda said June 15 remains a reasonable date for completion of the computer upgrade. But she called the project “massive” and acknowledged, “Delays are possible.”

Senate OKs doubling fines on K-10 TOPEKA — The Kansas Senate on Thursday approved legislation that would double fines on Kansas Highway 10 between Lawrence and Johnson County. Senate Bill 342 was forwarded to the House on a 22-18 vote. The measure was sought by the family of Cainan Shutt, a 5-year-old Eudora boy who was killed in an accident last year on K-10. Under the bill, traffic fines would double along K-10 and another heavily 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 informing them of the increased fines. Last April, a car driven by 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. Supporters of the bill, however, say doubling fines will also help increase safety.

Romney pounces on Santorum’s compromises By Charles Babington and Kasie Hunt Associated Press

MILFORD, MICH. — One day after a feisty debate, Mitt Romney criticized Republican rival Rick Santorum and courted tea party voters Thursday in a pair of primary states separated by nearly 2,000 miles. “I appreciate the work you’re doing. I appreciate your willingness to get out of your homes,” he told an audience of tea party members in suburban Detroit, an appearance designed to let him reach out to a part of the electorate that tends to favor his campaign rivals over him. Romney drew applause when he attacked President Barack Obama as uninformed about the workings of the American economy and called him “a man comfortable living with trillion-dollar deficits.” But he largely side-

stepped when asked how he could be able to counter Obama in a debate in the fall campaign if the president brought up similarities between the health care law Romney signed as governor of Massachusetts and the health care overhaul passed by Congress that Republican contenders have vowed to repeal. That was an evident reference to a requirement for individuals to purchase coverage — at the heart of both laws — but Romney’s answer omitted that topic. Instead, he said, “The first thing I’d say to him is, ‘You say you copied (the Massachusetts law), how come you didn’t give me a call? I’d have told you what worked what did not work.’” He added that the federal law was too expensive, raised taxes and cut $500 billion from Medicare over a decade. Romney threw a glancing blow at Santorum,

recalling that the former Pennsylvania senator had said in a debate in Mesa, Ariz., on Wednesday night that he had voted for President George W. Bush’s No Child Left Behind education law even though he didn’t like it. “He said, ‘You know, you’ve got to take it for the team now and then.’ Well, my team is the people of the United States of America.” That was Romney’s message earlier in the day in Arizona, as he sought to upend Santorum’s image as a principled defender of conservative ideals Thursday by describing him as just another giveand-take politician. Michigan and Arizona both hold primaries on Feb. 28. Romney is heavily favored to win Arizona and claim all 29 delegates at stake, but Santorum is making an unexpectedly strong bid for an upset in the second contest, where

30 delegates are on the line. Aides to Romney say Santorum opened himself to the attacks with a somewhat anguished explanation of his reluctant vote for the Bush-era school program in Wednesday’s televised debate. Romney hoped to stop his chief rival’s momentum on a day when Santorum was quietly raising money. But Obama wasn’t helping. His allies aired antiRomney ads in Michigan while the president campaigned in Florida, a crucial swing state that GOP candidates can’t afford to re-visit until their nominee is settled. A Romney setback in either Michigan’s primary or Arizona’s on Tuesday would be embarrassing, or worse. His campaign seemed grateful for Santorum’s unsteady showing in what may have been the GOP campaign’s last big debate.

In battered city, cries of tragic plight By Brian Murphy and Zeina Karam Associated Press

BEIRUT — Medics stitch wounds with thread used for clothing. Hungry residents risk Syrian government sniper fire or shelling to hunt for dwindling supplies of bread and canned food on the streets of the besieged city of Homs. The opposition stronghold was being destroyed “inch by inch,” by government forces, with collapsed walls and scorched buildings, according to accounts Thursday, while Western and Arab leaders hoped to silence the guns long enough to rush in relief aid. The pressure for “humanitarian corridors” into the central Syrian city of Homs and other places caught in President Bashar Assad’s crushing attacks appeared to be

Claim surfaces that Mormons baptized Anne Frank after death By Brian Skoloff and Michelle Rindels Associated Press

SALT LAKE CITY — A new claim has surfaced that the Mormon church has posthumously baptized a Holocaust victim, this time Anne Frank. The allegations come just a week after The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints apologized when it was brought to light that the parents of Holocaust survivor and Jewish rights advocate Simon Wiesenthal were posthumously baptized by church members at temples in Arizona and Utah in late January. Researcher Helen Radkey, a former Mormon who revealed the Wiesenthal baptisms, said this week she found Frank’s name in proxy baptism records dated Feb. 18, showing the ritual was performed in the Santo Domingo Temple in the Dominican Republic. The Mormon church almost immediately issued a statement, though it didn’t mention Frank by name. “The Church keeps its word and is absolutely firm in its commitment to not accept the names of Holocaust victims for proxy baptism,” the Salt Lake City-based church said. “It is distressing when an individual willfully violates the Church’s policy and something that should be understood to be an offering based on love and respect becomes a source of contention.” Church officials did not return telephone calls and

A spokeswoman for the Anne Frank House museum in Amsterdam declined comment. Larry Bair, the president of the Mormon temple of Santo Domingo, said Thursday he had looked into the reports but was unable to verify that Frank had been baptized. If it did occur, Bair told the AP, “it was a mistake.” Frank was a Jewish teenager forced into hiding in Amsterdam during the Holocaust and killed in a concentration camp. Her diary was published in 1947. The news infuriated Jewish leaders, who said the church had previously agreed to bar the process of baptizing Holocaust victims but has failed to follow through by educating its members.

es as high as Assad, and international envoys in London — including U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton — made final touches to an expected demand for Assad to call a cease-fire within days to permit emergency shipments of food and medicine. Washington and Euro-

pean allies remain publicly opposed to direct military intervention. But there have been growing signs that Western leaders could back efforts to open channels for supplies and weapons to the Syrian opposition, which includes breakaway soldiers from Assad’s military. In a sign of the international divide, however, key Assad ally Russia said Moscow and Beijing remain opposed to any foreign interference in Syria. Russian President Dmitry Medvedev spoke by telephone with the president of the United Arab Emirates and emphasized that “foreign interference, attempts to assess the legitimacy of the leadership of a state from the outside, run counter to the norms of international law and are fraught with the threat of regional and global destabilization,” the Kremlin said.


Ridicule helped doom Va. ultrasound bill By Bob Lewis

the word “transvaginal” became a big joke on “Saturday Night Live” and “The Daily Show With Jon Stewart,” it wasn’t long before Virginia’s conservative Republicans realized they had overreached on abortion. Gov. Bob McDonnell and GOP state lawmakers Wednesday abandoned a bill requiring women to undergo an intrusive type of sonogram before an abortion — an abrupt reversal that demonstrated the power of political satire and illustrated again how combustible the issue of women’s reproductive health has become over the past few weeks. “You never want to get on the wrong side of popular culture,” said Steve Jarding, a professor at Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government and a Democratic consultant who has run campaigns in Virginia. He added: “When people are laughing at you, you know you’ve gone too far.” At issue was a bill pushed by anti-abortion lawmakers that would have required women seeking an abortion to undergo a transvaginal sonogram, in which a wand is inserted in the vagina to yield an image of the fetus. The procedure differs from an abdominal sonogram, in which a wand is rubbed over the woman’s belly. Seven states have laws mandating some form of pre-abortion ultrasound exam. The Guttmacher Institute, which researches abortion-related issues, said none of the ultrasound laws in other states explicitly

JUNEAU, ALASKA — In the final months before she resigned as Alaska’s governor, Sarah Palin displayed growing frustration over deteriorating relationships with state lawmakers and their perceived efforts to “lame duck” her administration, along with outrage over ethics complaints that she felt frivolously targeted her and prompted her to write: “I can’t take it anymore.” The details are included in more than 17,000 records released Thursday by state officials — nearly 3 1/2 years after citizens and news organizations, including The Associated Press, first requested Palin’s emails. By the spring of 2009, the emails show, Palin was regularly butting heads with lawmakers of both parties over her absences from the Capitol and over her picks for vacancies in the state Senate and her own cabinet. The emails she sent to staff illustrate Palin’s growing suspicion that those legislators were seeking to undermine her administration by harping on how often she was away from Juneau, the state capitol.

Stepmom accused of running girl to death MONTGOMERY, ALA. — An Alabama woman was under guard at a hospital Thursday after giving birth hours after her arrest in the death of her 9-year-old stepdaughter, who authorities say was forced to run for three hours as punishment for lying about eating a candy bar. Jessica Mae Hardin, 27, was transferred from the

Etowah County Detention Center to a hospital on Wednesday, sheriff’s office spokeswoman Natalie Barton said. Etowah County District Attorney Jimmie Harp confirmed that Hardin had given birth hours after she was arrested. He said he didn’t know whether the newborn was a boy or a girl. Hardin and her motherin-law, 46-year-old Joyce Hardin Garrard, were charged with murder on Wednesday in the death of Savannah Hardin.

— Steve Jarding, a professor at Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government require the transvaginal procedure. However, Elizabeth Nash, Guttmacher’s state issues manager, said several of the laws, including a Texas measure recently upheld in federal court, effectively leave doctors with no option but the transvaginal procedure. That’s because an abdominal sonogram does not produce the detailed image of a first-trimester pregnancy that is required by some of the laws, Nash said. In Virginia, the bill began muscling its way through a legislature that recently came under the rule of GOP conservatives. It moved ahead despite an outcry from women and Democrats, including a female lawmaker who called it “state-mandated rape” and another who made her point with a failed amendment requiring rectal prostate exams for men seeking Viagra prescriptions. It didn’t fully jump the fence from politics into pop culture until “SNL” lampooned it on Saturday. “Really?” comic Amy Poehler sneered in noting the Virginia bill on “SNL.” ‘‘Don’t get me wrong, Transvaginal is my favorite airline. I have so many miles on Transvaginal that they upgrade me to ladybusiness.” Stewart wisecracked that “Transvaginal Ultrasound” was the name of a jazz fusion band he once saw in concert.

Man cooks own meal at Denny’s MADISON, WIS. — Police say a Wisconsin man took the Denny’s restaurant chain slogan “America’s diner is always open” too far, marching into one of the restaurants, announcing he was the new boss and cooking himself dinner. James Summers walked into a Madison Denny’s on Tuesday dressed in a maroon tie and black trench coat and carrying a briefcase, according to police. He strode into the manager’s office, told her he was the new general manager and then fixed himself a burger, fries and a soda before police arrived. “This is why you don’t dine and dash, kiddies,” Summers yelled out to diners as officers took him away, police said in a release. Police found a stun gun in a hip holster under his coat and crack pipes in his briefcase, a criminal complaint showed. Prosecutors charged him Wednesday with disorderly conduct and possession of drug paraphernalia, both misdemeanors, and felony possession of an electronic weapon.

Higher gas prices cloud Obama apologizes Obama’s re-election as Quran

By Tom Raum

Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Soaring gasoline prices are threatening to undercut President Barack Obama’s re-election prospects and offering Republicans an easy target. With prices pushing $4 a gallon and threatening to go even higher, Obama sought Thursday to confront rising public anxiety and strike back at his GOP critics. “Only in politics do people root for bad news, do they greet bad news so enthusiastically,” Obama said of Republicans. “You pay more; they’re licking their chops.” Obama said dismissively that all the Republicans can talk about is more drilling — “a bumper sticker ... a strategy to get politicians through an election” — when the nation’s energy challenges demand much more. In a speech in Miami, he promoted the expansion of domestic oil and gas exploration but also the development of new forms of energy. For all the political claims, economists say there’s not much a president of either party can do about gasoline prices. Certainly not in the short term. But it’s clear that people are concerned — a new Associated Press-GfK poll says seven in 10 find the issue deeply important — so it’s sure to be a political issue through the summer. “Right now, we’re experiencing yet another painful reminder of why developing new energy is so critical to our future,” the president said. At an average of $3.58 a gallon, prices are already up 25 cents since Jan. 1, and ex-

perts say they could reach a record $4.25 a gallon by Memorial Day. Those higher prices could hurt consumer spending and unravel some of the recent improvements in the economy. And they could also be a daily reminder to voters to question Obama’s contention that he’s making the nation — and them — more secure. While motorists are already starting to complain, many economists see the $4-a-gallon mark as a breaking point above which the economy starts to suffer real pain. Analysts estimate that every one-cent increase is roughly a $1.4 billion drain on the economy. Obama’s Republican challengers aren’t letting it all slide by. They have stepped up their attacks on his energy policies, including his rejection last month of a pipeline to carry oil from Canada to refineries on the U.S. Gulf Coast. And they’re full of promises. “I’ve developed a program for American energy so no future president will ever bow to a Saudi king again, and so every American can look forward to $2.50-a-gallon gasoline,” former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said in the Wednesday night GOP debate in Mesa, Ariz. He calls his strategy “Drill Here, Drill Now.” At the same event, former Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania — who has warned of $5-a-gallon gas — asserted that “we have a lot of troubles around the world, as you see the Middle East in flames and what’s going on in this country with gas prices and the economy.”

protests rage

KABUL, AFGHANISTAN (AP) — President Barack Obama apologized to Afghans on Thursday for the burning of Qurans at a U.S. military base, trying to assuage rising anti-American sen- Obama timent as an Afghan soldier gunned down two American troops during another day of angry protests. The U.S.-led military coalition says the Muslim holy books were sent by mistake to a garbage burn pit at Bagram Air Field and the case is under investigation. The explanation and multiple apologies from U.S. officials have yet to calm outrage over the incident, which has also heightened tension between international troops and their Afghan partners. Thousands of protesters, some shouting “Long live Islam!” and “Death to America!” staged demonstrations across Afghanistan for a third day. Protesters climbed the walls of a U.S. base in the east, threw stones inside and adorned an outside wall with the Taliban’s trademark white flag. At other sites, demonstrators burned tires or American flags. Afghan police and international troops fired guns in the air to disperse the crowds.

Panera spokeswoman Kate Antonacci said Thursday that locations will be announced this spring. One cafe could open by summer, another in the fall and possibly a third later this year. The concept is simple: Panera lists a suggested price for food, but customers pay what they want. Antonacci says about 15 to 20 percent pay more, and about the same percent pay less or nothing. She says it’s enough for the cafes to essentially break even.

Poll: Millionaire tax, spending cuts popular By Alan Fram Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Most people like President Barack Obama’s proposal to make millionaires pay a significant share of their incomes in taxes. Yet they’d still rather cut spending than boost taxes to balance the federal budget, an Associated PressGfK poll shows, giving Republicans an edge over Democrats in their core ideological dispute over the nation’s fiscal ills. The survey suggests that while Obama’s electionyear tax plan targeting people making at least $1 million a year has won broad support, it has done little to shift people’s basic views in the long-running partisan war over how best to tame budget deficits that lately have exceeded $1 trillion annually. “Everybody should be called to sacrifice. They should be in the pot with the rest of us,” Mike Whittles, 62, a Republican and retired police officer from Point Pleasant, N.J., said of his support for Obama’s tax proposal for the wealthy. But Whittles said he still prefers cutting government spending over raising taxes because of federal waste and what he calls “too many rules, too many regulations.” Sixty-five percent of the people in the AP-GfK poll favor Obama’s plan to require people making $1 million or more pay taxes equal to at least 30 percent of their income. Just 26 percent op-

posed Obama’s idea. Yet by 56 percent to 31 percent, more embraced cuts in government services than higher taxes as the best medicine for the budget, according to the survey, which was conducted Feb. 16 to 20. That response has changed only modestly since it was first asked in the AP-GfK poll last March. The question on Obama’s tax on the rich was not asked previously. The poll showed that overall, more people have a positive view of Democrats than Republicans, a ray of hope for Obama and his fellow Democrats with the approach of November’s presidential and congressional elections. Fiftyfour percent in the poll gave Democrats favorable ratings compared to 46 percent for Republicans, similar to results in January 2011, at the start of the newly elected Congress in which Republicans have run the House and Democrats wield a slender Senate majority. Though embraced by congressional Democrats, Obama’s proposal on taxing millionaires more has virtually no chance of passage by Congress in the political heat of this year’s campaigns. But it stands as a rallying cry for Democrats — about 9 in 10 of whom supported the plan in the poll — and it contrasts with proposals by the remaining major GOP presidential candidates, who would lower the current 35 percent top income tax rate.

Iran won’t back down easily


KU asset New facilities at Kansas University’s Edwards Campus in Johnson County will help further KU’s mission and contributions in the Kansas City metropolitan area.


he addition of the new Business, Engineering, Science and Technology building on Kansas University’s Edwards Campus in Johnson County is a significant step in the transition of the school from a facility to meet the needs of so-called non-traditional students to a university that will become a major educational institution. The Edward Campus will continue to grow in excellence and play a more significant role in higher education in greater Kansas City. The original purpose of the school was to provide graduate-level opportunities in Johnson County for people who found it difficult to travel to Lawrence to continue their education. Night classes were offered, and the school provided a means for working people to fit a graduate education into their tight schedules. The school is transitioning into a facility that will provide classes for both traditional and non-traditional students. Land for the Edwards Campus was donated by Kansas City business leader Clay Blair in 1987. This significant and generous gift is located in a prime location and covers between 35 and 40 acres. It is named for Blair’s close friend, the late Roy Edwards, a KU graduate and well-known Kansas City business leader with a deep interest in KU. In past years, Blair served as a chairman of the Kansas Board of Regents and, more recently, as the first chairman of the Kansas Bioscience Authority. He made his gift of land to the state and KU when Gene Budig was KU’s chancellor. Blair hoped the school would give individuals from all disciplines an educational opportunity. In addition to the backing of Budig, the proposal to establish a KU campus in Kansas City had the strong support of then-Gov. Mike Hayden, as well as various local and city officials. The growing Edwards Campus, the KU School of Medicine, the KU Hospital (a separate and independent facility) in Wyandotte County and the resources and excellence of the KU campus here in Lawrence combine to provide an ideal academic-research resource for Kansas City. In many ways, KU is the comprehensive research institution that Kansas City must have if the city is to grow and take advantage of its many opportunities.

WASHINGTON — “We are of the opinion that the Iranian regime is a rational actor,” said Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, last Sunday on CNN. That sounds right to me, but his comment raises a tricky question: How much pressure will it take to get this “rational” country to curb its nuclear program? The answer here isn’t comforting: Recent history shows that the Iranian regime will change behavior only if confronted with overwhelming force and the prospect of an unwinnable war. Short of that, the Iranians seem ready to cruise along on the brink, expecting that the other side will steer away. I count two clear instances when Iran has backed down, and two more “maybes.” These examples remind us that the Iranian leaders aren’t irrational madmen — and also that they drive a hard bargain. Here are the two documented retreats:

Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini in July 1988 “drank the cup of poison,” as he put it, and agreed to end the IraqIran war. He accepted a U.N.sponsored truce, but only after eight years of brutal fighting, Iraqi rocket attacks on Iranian cities, and the use of poison gas against Iranian troops. Khomeini’s decision followed the shoot-down of an Iranian civilian airliner on July 3 by the USS Vincennes — unintended, but a dem-

Recent history shows that the Iranian regime will change behavior only if confronted with overwhelming force and the prospect of an unwinnable war.” onstration of overwhelming American firepower in the Persian Gulf.

 Ayatollah Ali Khamenei’s regime halted its nuclear weapons program in the fall of 2003 because of “international pressure,” according to a 2007 U.S. National Intelligence Estimate. The decision came after the March 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq, which the Iranians apparently feared was the prelude to an attack on their soil. The Iranians also agreed in 2003 to start talks with European nations on limiting their enrichment of uranium — beginning the haggling that continues to this day. Two other examples are less obvious, but they illustrate the same theme of rational Iranian response to pressure. In both

cases the trigger was a strong back-channel message from the United States:

 In March 2008, Iran restrained its Shiite allies in Iraq after a U.S. warning about shelling the Green Zone. The Mahdi Army had been firing heavy rockets and mortars into the enclave, causing rising U.S. casualties. Gen. David Petraeus, then U.S. commander in Baghdad, sent a message — “Stop shooting at the Green Zone” — to Gen. Qassem Soleimani, head of the Quds Force. The intermediary was Iraqi President Jalal Talabani, who had close relations with both generals. The shelling tapered off.

 Last month, Iran toned down its threats to close the Strait of Hormuz after a U.S. back-channel warning that any such action would trigger a punishing U.S. response. The private message paralleled a public U.S. statement: “The United States and the international community have a strong interest in the free flow of commerce and freedom of navigation in all international waterways.” Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi subsequently offered reassurance: “Iran has never in its history tried to prevent, to put any obstacles in the way of this important maritime route.” The Iranians’ behavior in negotiations, too, has seemed to wax and wane based on their perception of the West’s seriousness.

Flawed theory To the editor: Thank you for printing “Policy group looks at Laffer tax claims” in Saturday’s Journal-World. The study by the independent Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy clearly refutes the claims of Arthur Laffer that tax cuts lead to economic growth. George H.W. Bush was correct when he called Laffer’s theory “voodoo economics.” Even so, this hasn’t stopped the Brownback administration from paying Arthur Laffer $75,000 to try to sell this phony concept to Kansans. The governor forgot that Kansans can see through this flawed theory. Neal Malicky, Lawrence,

New attacks on free speech LAWRENCE

tions in 2010, the Iranians got nervous. When India and China reduced oil purchases recently, Tehran took notice. Clear messaging to Iran — and to Israel, too — is important as the tension mounts over a possible Israeli attack on Iranian nuclear targets. The most direct public message yet came from Dempsey in his appearance on Fareed Zakaria’s show, “GPS.” It’s worth looking carefully at just what the nation’s top military officer said. “The Iranian regime has not decided that they will embark on the effort to weaponize their nuclear capability,” Dempsey said, thereby offering Tehran a chance to save face in any deal. He argued that because Iran isn’t yet building a weapon, it would be “premature” and “not prudent” for Israel to attack. “A strike at this time would be destabilizing and wouldn’t achieve their long-term objectives,” he cautioned. But he conceded that the U.S. hasn’t yet persuaded Israel to hold off. The signal to Israel is very clear: Don’t attack! But what about the message to Iran? History shows that the clerics in Tehran won’t accept a deal unless they conclude there’s no alternative but a punishing war. Somehow, the U.S. must convince Iran this confrontation is deadly serious — and then work to find the rational pathway toward agreement.

Pat Buchanan might have seen the end of the line coming at MSNBC when last month network president Phil Griffin commented on his latest book, “Suicide of a Superpower,” by saying, “I don’t think the ideas that (Buchanan) put forth are appropriate for the national dialogue, much less on MSNBC.” When Buchanan was let go last week after 10 years as a commentator on the network, no one was surprised. I don’t agree with some of Buchanan’s ideas, but he has every right to his ideas, as we all have the right to our own. It’s called free speech. The approach to free speech should be like the one taken by the ACLU in 1977 when neo-Nazis made plans to march through the Jewish suburb of Skokie, Ill. While deploring their views, the ACLU defended the group’s right to express itself. Today, is censorship the new pluralism? Actor Ben Jones, who starred as “Cooter” on the television show “The Dukes of Hazzard,” wrote to tell me about a decision by NASCAR to ban the car known as the “General Lee” from appearing at the Sprint Cup series race at Phoenix next month. The image of the Confederate flag on the car’s roof, said NASCAR spokesman David Higdon, “ not something that should play an official role in our sport as we continue to reach out to new fans and make NASCAR more inclusive.” Jones said in a recent statement, “At a time when tens

Jones is not only an actor, but a former Democratic member of Congress from Georgia and a strong civil rights proponent. When the U.S. Supreme Court upholds the burning of the American flag as free speech, while the free exercise of religion is being curtailed at many levels, is this not censoring a particular category of expression? Censorship is

also moving beyond its classic definition into a new and even more dangerous area. As The Daily Caller, a 24hour news site founded by conservative pundit Tucker Carlson and former Cheney aide Neil Patel, has reported, a liberal group known as Media Matters has not only fed talking points to some reporters and opinion columnists, it has been campaigning to get people fired when they hold ideas with which the left disagrees. According to the Caller, Media Matters hired people to investigate the lives of Fox News employees and compiled an “enemies list.” Media Matters didn’t respond directly to the charges; its founder, David Brock, instead pointed to Reuters’ criticism of the Caller’s “bad journalism” and “lame propaganda” as the reason for Media Matters’ silence. These and many other attempts to suppress speech and force people into a universal and “acceptable” belief system harm freedom. Suppressing speech changes not a single mind. The freedom to debate ideas and present arguments in support of a position is what separates the United States from most other nations. Do we want to become like countries that have the equivalent of “thought police,” smothering speech and penalizing anyone who refuses to toe the party line? Should I be prevented from asking this question? — Cal Thomas is a columnist for Tribune Media Services

LHS senior Henrichs versatile

By Gary Bedore

By Benton Smith

It’s not every night that Logan Henrichs’ stat line jumps off the page and demands attention. It often looks something like this: a handful of rebounds, a few assists, a couple buckets, maybe double-digit scoring. Nothing flashy, extraordinary or eyepopping. But ask the Lawrence High senior’s teammates and coaches IT’S ON about Henrichs, and What: Basthey deliver ketball City rave re- Showdown, views.

Lewis said Henrichs has a nose for the ball and competes on the glass, but he also scores around the basket and can either spot up or go to the rim off the dribble. Basically, he is a Please see HENRICHS, page 3B

Taylor expects ‘crazy’ game

LAWRENCE HIGH SENIOR LOGAN HENRICHS (32) HANGS IN THE AIR as he lofts a shot over Connor Soukup during the Lions’ game against Olathe South in this photo from Jan. 21 in Topeka. Henrichs doesn’t always put up the biggest numbers, but his teammates say he’s a key cog for the Lions.

The end is near for Kansas University senior guard Tyshawn Taylor, who has just two home games left to play in his college career. Both figure to be major happenings — Saturday’s 3 p.m., clash against Missouri in what is being billed as the last game in history between the rivals in Allen Fieldhouse, and an 8 p.m., Taylor March 3, Senior Night contest against Texas. “I think it’s definitely going to be the biggest in my four years,” Taylor said, asked if Saturday’s rematch of a 74-71 loss to the Tigers on Feb. 4 in Columbia, Mo., could be the biggest game since Allen Fieldhouse opened. “Look at all the people we have out there (hundreds of student campers). This is the most campers we’ve had in a minute, so I think it’s gonna be crazy. I’ve been a part of probably three or four like really crazy games, and I think this is probably going to top all three or four of those,” Taylor added. The Jayhawks are eager to make up for the game at Mizzou Arena in which KU squandered an eight-point lead late. “We’re still kind of bitter about that,” Taylor said. “We kind of let that slip away, so we’re going to try to bounce back at home.” KU coach Bill Self believes this has the potential to be the greatest game-day atmosphere in at least his nine seasons at KU. After all, a victory would assure KU a tie for its eighth-straight Big 12 title with two games left on the slate. What’s more, the country’s top high school prospect, Las Vegas’ Shabazz Muhammad, will be sitting behind the KU bench as part Please see TAYLOR, page 3B

Griner, Baylor have KU women’s attention By Jesse Newell

Baylor All-American forward Brittney Griner is averaging 22.7 points and 9.8 rebounds, but it’s another aspect of her game that impresses Kansas University coach Bonnie Henrickson the most. “I’ve always said that the most impact she has is on the other end of the floor because she’s going to take 25 to 30 (points) away from you at the rim and even mid-

range,” Henrickson said. “You have to be really smart with her and recognize she doesn’t have to be very close to you to get a piece of it. She can cover a lot of ground in a short period of time.” KU will have to be opportunistic to try to score against the 6-foot-8 Griner and BU during today’s 6:30 p.m. home game against the No. 1-ranked Bears. Baylor remains as the only undefeated team left in men’s or women’s Div. I basketball.

The Jayhawks’ first crack at the Bears’ defense didn’t go so well. KU made just 18 of 61 field goals (30 percent) and 13 of 49 twos (27 percent) in a 7446 loss at BU on Jan. 28. In that game, Griner contributed five blocks in 31 minutes. “You can’t go challenge her at the rim,” Henrickson said. “That’s wasted possessions.” Henrickson said it was important for her team to take advantage of transition op-

portunities and also knock down open jumpers when they were available. On Saturday, Texas Tech demonstrated another strategy that was effective against BU: shooting lots of three-pointers early instead of taking the ball into Griner. The Red Raiders made six of eight first-half threes, taking a 35-30 halftime lead before eventually falling, 56-51, at Waco. KU did show the ability to hit outside shots in the first

match-up, making five of 12 threes (42 percent). Another important matchup for KU offensively will be point guard Angel Goodrich against BU’s Odyssey Sims, who leads the conference with 3.2 steals per game. “We’ve got to get her screened a little bit and try to get her off of (Angel) a little bit,” Henrickson said, “because that’s a lot for Angel to handle.” BU has won the last four games against KU and 14 of the last 15.

Kansas LB Johnson eager for combine shot Steven Johnson

By Matt Tait

Two years ago at this time, Kansas University linebacker Steven Johnson had just 10 career tackles and was a relative unknown in college football. Today, he’s in Indianapolis going through the first of a four-day stay at the NFL combine, a tell-

all football job interview that tests the speed, strength and smarts of the top college players in the country. Johnson led the Jayhawks in tackles during each of the last two seasons — 95 in 2010 and 124 in 2011, which ranked him 16th in the nation. Like most things during the former walk-on’s football career, the invitation did not come without some adversity. When the initial list of invitees came out in early January, Johnson’s name was not on it. Following the advice of his

agent, Johnson called to inquire about his status and was told that combine officials were waiting for the list of juniors eligible for the NFL Draft to be finalized before completing the list. A few weeks and several prayers later, Johnson officially received his invitation. With one goal fulfilled, Johnson immediately began working on his next. “Getting invited to the combine is big,” he said. “I’ve been watching the combine ever since high school. It’s something I’ve just worked hard for ever since I first

started playing football. But I still have to go out and perform. It’s kind of like a reward for having a good season.” The combine began Wednesday. Because it showcases the skills of 329 athletes, that number is divided into different groups, and each makes its way through the week in stations. Johnson, who will wear bib number LB16, will be grouped with the rest of the linebackers. They’ll be on the same schedule with all of the defensive lineman. Please see JOHNSON, page 3B

Braun’s suspension overturned NEW YORK (AP) — National League MVP Ryan Braun’s 50game suspension was overturned Thursday by baseball arbitrator Shyam Das, the first time a baseball player successfully challenged a drug-related penalty in a grievance. The decision was announced Thursday by the Major League Baseball Players Association, one day before the 28-year-old outfielder was due to report to spring training with the Milwaukee Brewers. Braun’s urine tested positive in October for elevated testosterone, and ESPN revealed the

positive test in December. Braun has insisted that he did not violate baseball’s drug agreement. “I am very pleased and Braun relieved by today’s decision,” he said in a statement. “It is the first step in restoring my good name and reputation. We were able to get through this because I am innocent and the truth is on our side.” MLB executive vice president

Wichita Heights has streak end at 62

Rob Manfred said management “vehemently disagrees” with Das’ decision. Das, who has been baseball’s independent arbitrator since 2000, informed the sides of his decision, but did not give them a written opinion. He has 30 days to do so. “Today the arbitration panel announced its decision, by a 2-1 vote, to sustain Ryan Braun’s grievance challenging his 50game suspension by the commissioner’s office,” a statement from the players’ association said. Manfred and union head Mi-

chael Weiner are part of the arbitration panel, and management and the union almost always split their votes, leaving Das, the independent panel member, to make the decision. A person familiar with the situation told the Associated Press that, after being informed of the positive result, Braun asked to have another urine test taken, and that the second test was within normal range. Braun hit .312 with 33 homers and 111 RBIs last year and led Milwaukee to the NL championship series, where the Brewers lost to the St. Louis Cardinals.

J-W Staff and Wire Reports

Wichita East defeated Wichita Heights, the No. 10 team in the USA TODAY Super 25 boys basketball rankings, 57-51, on Tuesday, ending the nation’s longest active high school boys basketball winning streak at 62 games. Wichita Heights player Perry Ellis — a Kansas University signee — had 30 points and 13 rebounds for Heights. Senior guard Jalen Love led East with 27 points. The Falcons have won three consecutive 6A state championships and last lost Dec. 19, 2009. Despite the loss, they still have a chance to win a fourth consecutive title as they begin the playoffs next week. “Teenagers live in the moment and in the moment they were really sad,” Falcons coach Joe Auer told The Wichita Eagle. “This has been an amazing experience, but it was never our goal to have a winning streak. It’s not what we’re about. This doesn’t change anything for us.” With Wichita Heights’ loss, No. 3 St. Anthony (Jersey City) now has the longest current winning streak at 55 games. That streak was also threatened Tuesday as the Friars held off a late charge at home to defeat Lincoln (Brooklyn, N.Y.), 51-45. While Wichita Heights’ streak was a state record, it was a far cry from the national record. According to the National Federation of State High School Associations, the record is 159 consecutive wins by Passaic, N.J., from 1919-25. Then Thursday, future Kansas guard Conner Frankamp scored 38 points as Wichita North defeated Wichita Heights, 47-38, giving Heights a two-game losing streak. Ellis had 11 points for Heights. KU coach Bill Self attended the game in Wichita.

Basehor TE commits to Jayhawks J-W Staff Reports

Ben Johnson, a 6-foot-6, 225-pound junior tight end from Basehor-Linwood High, has orally committed to the Kansas University football team, Rivals. com is reporting. Johnson is the first KU football commit of the class of 2013. “I have grown up a Kansas fan,” Johnson told “I’m a Kansas guy and I have always liked the area. I just needed to think about everything. I talked with my family and knew Kansas is where I wanted to be.” Johnson received a scholarship offer from KU on Wednesday. He needed just one day to think about it before calling coach Charlie Weis to commit Thursday evening. During his junior year, Johnson caught 56 passes for 956 yards and 12 touchdowns. lists Johnson the top tight-end prospect in Kansas for the 2013 class.

TIGER WOODS TEES OFF ON THE FOURTH HOLE AT THE MATCH PLAY golf championships. Woods lost to Nick Watney in the second round Thursday in Marana, Ariz.

Watney sends Woods packing at Match Play MARANA, ARIZ. — Tiger Woods had a fivefoot birdie putt to extend the match, and Nick Watney already was thinking about how to play the next hole. He had his yardage book out, trying to decide whether 3-wood was the right club to hit off the first tee. “The old adage is to expect your opponent to make it,” Watney said. “And when it’s Tiger Woods, you really expect him to make it.” Just not this Tiger Woods. In what is becoming a troubling trend for Woods, he missed the birdie putt so badly that it never even touched the hole, giving Watney a 1-up victory Thursday in the Match Play Championship. It was the third straight time that Woods, a three-time champion in this event, failed to get out of the second round. “I didn’t miss a single shot coming in, which is good. And that was fun, to hit the ball that well,” Woods said. “Unfortunately, I just didn’t make a putt when I needed it.” Woods missed three putts inside 10 feet over the last six holes, none more important than the last one. Two weeks ago, Woods couldn’t buy a putt at Pebble Beach and closed with a 75, 11 shots worse than playing partner Phil Mickelson. He also struggled to make putts in Abu Dhabi, when he failed to win despite being tied for the 54hole lead with Robert Rock. “I’m very happy to move on. I feel a bit fortunate, as well,” Watney said. “We don’t see him miss putts like that very often. And there were a few of them.” Watney next plays Lee Westwood, the former world No. 1 whom Watney has beaten at Dove Mountain each of the last two years. Westwood had no trouble against Robert Karlsson of Sweden, advancing to the third round for the first time in 12 tries at this fickle event. “Need more clothes. Didn’t pack for long enough!” Westwood jokingly tweeted. England has won this World Golf Championship the last two years — Luke Donald and Ian Poulter — and Westwood is its last hope to make it three in a row.


Kenseth, Stewart win qualifiers DAYTONA BEACH, FLA. — Matt Kenseth won the second of the twin 150-mile Daytona 500 qualifying races Thursday with a bold pass of teammate Greg Biffle. The victory gave Kenseth a spot on the second row for Sunday’s race — right behind teammates Carl Edwards and Biffle. Tony Stewart, the defending NASCAR champion, won the first race and will line up next to Kenseth at Daytona International Speedway.

Biffle was leading headed into the final lap, but he tried to block Kenseth, who dove to the inside and used a push from Jimmie Johnson to take the lead. “Well, we were going so much faster that we were going to go by him regardless,” Kenseth said. “I think that was his only hope, is to try to get up the track, try to line my front bumper up where I had to push him. The problem was, I was going too fast. Even if I wanted to slow down, which I didn’t want to on the last lap, I couldn’t have.” Robby Gordon and Michael McDowell earned the two spots up for grabs in the first race, while Joe Nemechek and Dave Blaney each raced their way into the 500 in the second qualifying race.

Ex-Bear’s family suing league CHICAGO — The family of former Chicago Bears player Dave Duerson has filed a wrongful-death suit against the NFL over his suicide. The suit was filed Thursday in Chicago on behalf of Duerson’s children. Duerson died on Feb. 17, 2011, of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the chest. The lawsuit accuses the NFL of negligently causing the brain damage that led Duerson to take his own life at the age of 50 by not warning him of the negative effects of concussions. The lawsuit says Boston University experts have determined that Duerson was suffering from advanced brain damage when he died.

K.C. catcher to have surgery SURPRISE, ARIZ. — Royals catcher Manny Pina will undergo surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee and could miss the rest of spring training. Pina hurt the knee Wednesday when he twisted to catch a foul tip in batting practice. Manager Ned Yost said Thursday that Pina would return to Kansas City, where surgery will be performed. The 24-year-old from Venezuela was competing with Brayan Pena to be the backup to starting catcher Salvador Perez. Pina made his big league debut last season, hitting .214 over the course of four games in August. He hit .238 in 68 games with Triple-A Omaha. In other news, left-hander Jose Mijares could arrive in camp soon after working out visa issues in Venezuela. The Royals had not been in contact with him for several days, but Yost said Mijares had simply been out of cell-phone service while taking care of family issues.

State awaits LHS, FSHS wrestlers By Benton Smith

Everything Lawrence High’s wrestling team has done this season has been geared toward today and Saturday. Competing in two-day tournaments, overnight stays, facing tough competition — it was all to prepare the Lions for the Class 6A state wrestling tournament, which begins at 10 a.m. today at Hartman Arena in Wichita. With 10 LHS wrestlers — seniors Macon Ezell (152), Nick Pursel (170), Reece Wright-Conklin (182) and Brad Wilson (220), juniors Hunter Haralson (126) and Caden Lynch (132), sophomores Garrett Girard (113), Ryan Walter (120) and Alex Jones (285) and freshman

Tristan Star (106) — all competing at state, the Lions, ranked No. 2 in Class 6A, hope to rack up enough points to contend for a state championship when the tourney wraps up Saturday evening. Lawrence’s wrestlers, coach Pat Naughton said, will have to be mentally prepared, warmed up and ready to go if they want to have a chance at a team title. “Down there at state, you can’t have a slow start,” Naughton said. “You’ve got to be ready to go.” Haralson, who placed fourth at state as a 119-pounder in 2011, said the Lions can’t afford to overlook anybody the next two days. “At state, anything could happen at any mo-

ment,” Haralson said. “It doesn’t matter if you’re seeded higher than anybody else.” Every day, he added, the team has discussed LHS assistant coach Randy Streeter’s philosophy: “Anybody can beat anybody at any given point, no matter how good or how bad your record is.” Finding a way to build momentum, Pursel said, will be huge for each wrestler, because winning back-to-back matches is difficult at state. “It’s just a matter of stringing together (wins at) that tournament,” he said. “I’ve seen them all (his LHS teammates) win their matches against kids that are gonna be there.” In pursuit of a team title, Naughton said having 10 wrestlers will improve

Lawrence’s odds. Still, some programs will have more competing — No. 1 Manhattan is sending all 14 of its wrestlers, No. 7 Derby qualified 12, No. 10 Junction City will have 11, and Shawnee Mission East will be represented in 13 weight classes. Naughton has stressed to the wrestlers that all of that is out of their control. Haralson said LHS can’t afford to care about other teams having more grapplers at their disposal. “As long as our wrestlers come there with the mind-set that we can win and we can do it with 10 wrestlers, I don’t think numbers will matter,” he said. Pursel agreed that LHS shouldn’t be limited because of its numbers, be-

Stallworth’s 50 turns 40 Johnson By Gary Bedore

Sunday marks the 40th anniversary of one of the most remarkable days in Kansas University basketball history: the day Isaac “Bud” Stallworth exploded for 50 points in a 93-80 victory over Missouri in Allen Fieldhouse. The sweet-shooting 6-foot-5 senior from Hartselle, Ala., hit 19 of 38 shots and 12 of 13 free throws on Feb. 26, 1972, thrilling a packed Allen Fieldh o u s e c r o w d that included his m o t h e r , Stallworth who was watching her son play in KU’s tradition-rich building for the first time. Members of KU’s 1952 national title team, who were in town for a 20threunion celebration, also were on hand to see Stallworth’s one-for-the-ages outing. “It was a great, great day — a remarkable performance,” former KU coach Ted Owens said of the second-highest scoring output from a Jayhawk. Stallworth’s ‘halfa-hundred’ points trailed only Wilt Chamberlain, who scored 52 points against Northwestern on Dec. 3, 1956. It remains the most points a Jayhawk has scored in a conference game. “It’s not like we were


of his official recruiting visit. “I haven’t been here that long, but this is my 10th year counting the year I was here with Larry Brown,” Self said of the 1985-86 season. “I don’t think there will be anything that compares to it. The only night I can think of that would be close to as energized would be the inaugural event, the opening of the building. I would think that would have been a special, special night when KU played K-State to open the building (March 1, 1955, when KU beat the Wildcats, 7767).” KU junior Jeff Withey realizes the roar before the opening tip could raise the roof. “You can barely hear yourself think when it’s like that,” Withey said. “It’s real exciting playing in an atmosphere like that. I know it’s going to be really intimidating for the other team.” O

T-Rob says he’s sorry: KU junior forward Thomas Robinson apologized

playing a bad team. Missouri was good. Norm (Stewart, MU coach) tried everything. He put three different guys on Bud. Bud just had one of those nights,” Owens said. Stallworth — he had the front-end of a one-on-one free throw make erased when teammate Wilson Barrow stepped into the lane — scored 50 without benefit of the three-point line. “Think about this ... 13 of those baskets would have been three-pointers today,” Owens said. “That’s 63 points.” Stallworth, who played in the NBA for five years and returned to Lawrence in 1987 to work in design and construction management at both KU Med Center and KU, has been reminded of his 50-point outing on almost a daily basis since that amazing day. “I can’t believe it’s been 40 years,” Stallworth said with a laugh. “That 40 years have passed is kind of a monumental thing. I think it’s great to be alive and an honor to have played at KU. It’s been quite a ride. Individually, that was icing on the cake. That was the individual highlight, but team-wise (11-15 record) we were disappointed we didn’t have the success we had the previous year (when KU reached Final Four and went undefeated in Big Eight).” Stallworth averaged a whopping 25.3 points a game his senior season en route to winning Big Eight

player-of-the-year honors. He had his jersey hung in the rafters of Allen Fieldhouse on Jan. 31, 2005, with that 50-point outing of course prominently mentioned that day. “Missouri had a chance to win the Big Eight championship if they beat us,” Stallworth recalled. “The shots started falling, and Norm tried all different defenses. I guess I just got on a hot streak, and the rest is history. To do something like that your last time as a senior is a storybook kind of thing. More so than anything else though, we ended up beating Missouri my last game.” As co-host of the “Rock Chalk Sports Talk” radio show on Lawrence’s KLWN, he has spent a lot of time talking about Missouri’s leaving the Big 12 for the SEC, starting next season. “I have no heartache of them going to the SEC,” Stallworth said. “I have heartache not playing them anymore. I have good relationships with a lot of people from Missouri. I see Norm on the celebrity golf circuit and speaking circuit. I never had hatred for Missouri. We just wanted to beat them. “The thing about this rivalry ... it goes deep,” Stallworth added of the passions of the fans. “To get a feel for it, you have to be in Lawrence or Columbia. It’s not just two schools or cities. It’s two states going against each other.”

for his technical foul in Wednesday’s victory over Texas A&M on Twitter late Wednesday night. He wrote: “Let my emotions get the best Of me tonight apologize to all my jayhawk fans and anybody who supports me or our program won’t happen again!” Self said Thursday that he speaks with Robinson “all the time” about teams trying to frustrate him. “We had a kid at Oklahoma State named Byron Houston that was a beast, but he was emotional. When you’d put a reserve or two reserves in to lay on him or something like that, he’d get frustrated. Thomas has really handled that, for the most part, really well,” Self said. “Last night, there was nothing that Texas A&M did that was even remotely worth getting frustrated over. You’ve just got to finish plays. That led to his frustration as much as anything. “I think it happened (shoving A&M’s Ray Turner as they fought for a loose ball) strictly out of frustration because he hadn’t had a good game. I don’t think it had anything to do with the actual play. It was frustration for a lot of reasons, how they

defended him and that kind of stuff. That is what disappoints me. I think kids can get emotional in a scuffle or a loose ball, that doesn’t bother me. You have to think for the team’s benefit, and you can’t push anybody, which was a bad play on his behalf and probably gave them the only chance they had to possibly win the game.” O

Missing Mizzou?: Self was asked if he has personal feelings about playing Missouri for the last time. “No,” he said. “I love playing Missouri. I loved playing them when I was at Illinois, and I’ve loved playing them since I’ve been here, but it’s not anything that I’m going to sit around and think about. I don’t feel that strongly at all about it.” O

Jayhawks to attend: Plenty of former KU players will be in the house Saturday. They include: Eric Chenowith, Nick Collison, Matt Kleinmann, Raef LaFrentz, Christian Moody, Brady Morningstar, Marcus Morris, Markieff Morris, Kevin Pritchard, Tyrel Reed, Bud Stallworth, Billy Thomas and Stephen Vinson.

cause, realistically, the team that wins it all likely will have eight or nine medalists. “Most of our guys that are going are going to be able to place,” Pursel said.

Free State sending four Four Free State High wrestlers will be competing at the state tournament. Senior Andrew McLees (132) and junior Spencer Wilson (182) are returning state qualifiers — Wilson was state runner-up at 160 pounds in 2011 — while junior Ben Soukup (152) and sophomore Maurice Jacobs (126) will make their state debuts. “They’re pretty excited,” FSHS coach Mike Gillman said. After practicing Thursday night, Gillman said he hoped to get the wrestlers




After arriving in Indianapolis Thursday, Johnson will get rolling with his combine experience today. First up is registration, orientation and a handful of medical exams. On Saturday, Johnson will go through a series of measurements, more exams, a media session and psychological testing. Sunday, his group will attend a meeting with the NFL Players Association and a series of interviews. And Monday will be showtime. That’s the day Johnson will run through all of the workouts, timing stations and skills tests. This portion of the combine will be shown on the NFL Network at 8 a.m. and again at 7 p.m. Coaches, scouts and team doctors from all 32 NFL teams all will be on hand for the workouts. Johnson has spent the last several weeks working out in Arizona with Mo Streety of the Arizona Cardinals, who has trained such NFL stars as Darrell Revis, Roddy White and Terrell Suggs. The former KU linebacker not known for his wheels said he’s hoping to showcase his improved speed more than anything. “I know a lot of people want to see my 40 time,” he said. “They’re expecting me to run a 4.75 or something like that, and out here training I’ve already done way better than that.

balanced attacker who contributes 9.5 points a game — second on the team, behind senior KJ Pritchard’s 10.9 average. Pritchard said his backcourt mate is a multi-dimensional, do-it-all player who makes an impact whenever he is on the floor. “He can pick his times where he wants to be aggressive,” Pritchard said, “and when he wants to be more passive and get his teammates involved.” Henrichs admittedly enjoys dabbling in all aspects of the game. “I don’t feel like I’m stronger in a certain area,” he said. “I just try to do everything possible I can. If it’s rebounding one night, then I’ll go and get rebounds.” While Henrichs shoots 40 percent from inside the arc, 36 percent from three-point range and 72 percent at the foul line, he also averages 2.7 assists and just more than one steal and leads LHS with nine charges drawn. His versatility on both ends of the floor, senior Anthony Buffalomeat said, is undeniable. But there’s even more to it than that. “He’s like a natural leader,” Buffalomeat said, “and whenever he’s on the court, he wants to win. He’ll do anything to help our team.”

settled down and focused in on what’s at hand. The coach especially wanted to calm down Spencer. “His personal goal is obviously to get to the finals,” Gillman said. The No. 2 182-pounder in 6A has even more specific plans. “Hopefully I’ll make it to the finals again and face Reece,” the Free State junior said of a possible fourth match-up this season with Lawrence’s Wright-Conklin, ranked No. 1 in 6A. Spencer is 0-3 against his rival thus far and would like a chance at another rematch, considering WrightConklin (34-2) has accounted for each of Spencer’s losses in a 30-3 season. “I think I just have to be more focused than I’ve been,” he said.

That approach, Henrichs said, comes from taking on different roles over the past four-plus years. At Central Junior High, he was more of a lead player. Then his first couple of seasons at LHS, he was an underclassman and took a different role. As a sophomore and junior at LHS, he just tried to find different ways to gain playing time. “I think that’s just carried over to my senior year,” he said. What has made the Lions successful this season is having a combination of perimeter options who play the game much like Henrichs does. Much of LHS offense is based around movement away from the ball, and the freewheeling approach, which Lewis said isn’t always perfect, has made Lawrence difficult to guard. “They’ve gotten to a point where they’re playing pretty good,” Lewis said. “It’s about playing together.” They’re hoping that approach will do the trick at home tonight at 7 in the City Showdown rematch against Free State. The Lions won, 75-68 in overtime, on Dec. 16, 2011, at FSHS. That LHS victory snapped a four-game losing streak in the series for Lawrence, but considering tonight’s game also will serve as Senior Night, Pritchard said it will be the biggest game of the year to date. “This is our Super Bowl,” he said.

Musicals, Marines and fishing boats While fans of “Smash” wait for that drama to coalesce around its make-believe musical, “Great Performances” (8 p.m., PBS, check local listings) offers viewers the real thing: a presentation of “Memphis,” the 2010 Tony winner for Best Musical. With music and lyrics by David Bryan, “Memphis” recalls the pre-Elvis scene of that city in the 1950s, when white listeners (personified here as a charismatic and curious disc jockey) began to appreciate and popularize the rhythm and blues heard in black clubs and honky-tonks. Through song and dance, “Memphis” explores themes of integration and social change, as well as the well-founded fears among black performers that their music and culture were being appropriated and watered down for a broader white audience.

The 2011 documentary “Semper Fi: Always Faithful” (9 p.m., MSNBC) recalls how a personal tragedy shattered a Marine’s life before inspiring him to undertake a crusade. Sgt. Jerry Ensminger, a Marine drill instructor for nearly a quarter century, saw his life fall apart when his 9-year-old daughter developed a rare form of leukemia and died. After years of grief, Ensminger began to search for explanations and discovered that the Marine Corps base where his family lived was on the site of one of the largest incidents of water contamination in U.S. history. For nearly 30 years, the water at Camp LeJeune, N.C., was contaminated by toxic chemicals, sometimes at more than 280 times the legal limit. Ensminger not only unveiled a likely cause for his daughter’s illness but also exposed that upward of a million Marine recruits had been drinking poisoned water.

A cable tough-guy show comes to network TV on “Undercover Boss” (7 p.m., CBS) as the CEO of American Seafoods poses as a deckhand on a vessel working off Alaska.

Tonight’s other highlights

Actor Blair Underwood (“L.A. Law,” ‘‘The Event”) traces his family tree on “Who Do You Think You Are?” (7 p.m., NBC).

Less is more in Baltimore on “Kitchen Nightmares” (7 p.m., Fox).

A fight club for the fairy-tale set on “Grimm” (8 p.m., NBC).

Peter and the Fringe pull out the stops on “Fringe” (7 p.m., Fox).

A pair of slippers and some hot cocoa seems a small price to pay to save your marriage. Dear Annie: My mother has three brothers. My grandmother’s eyes are blue, and my grandfather’s are blue-gray. My mother and two of her brothers have brown eyes. From my college biology class and some Internet research, I understand this is genetically impossible. This leads me to believe my mother and uncles may not be my grandfather’s children. I also know that my grandmother had many miscarriages and a stillborn.

MAYDAY! By Ruby Deswit


come close to divorcing on a few occasions. Should I speak to my mother about this? I’d like to know my biological family. — BrownEyed Girl Dear Brown-Eyed: Eye color is very complicated. While not common, it is indeed possible for blue-eyed parents to produce brown-eyed children. And if your grandparents carry a mutation, it would make sense that more than one child would have brown eyes. So please don’t jump to any conclusions. If you are concerned that your genetic background is inaccurate, speak to your mother.

 Remain sensitive to a boss or higher-up who means a lot to you. Discussions occur on a one-on-one level that help resolve a problem. Tonight: Be a duo. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  Others are direct and know what they want. You could feel unusually tense when dealing with a key person. Tonight: Where the fun is. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  Pace yourself and take your time; you will complete what is needed with more precision. Communication forces you to take a different look at a situation, whether you are open to it or not. Tonight: Indulge in a favorite form of relaxation. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)  The fire associated with your sign comes out full blast. You need to handle a personal matter differently, especially if it revolves around a power play. Tonight: Act like it is Friday night. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)  Others don’t know what ails you, but they recognize that you are not feeling up to snuff. You might be suppressing more emotions than you realize, creating a withdrawn attitude. Tonight: Refuse to get caught up in a power play. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  Keep communication open. You might hear something that is so surprising, that even you need to sit down. Tonight: Meet friends. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)  You might see a situation much differently because of a change with your finances. You pull the wild card financially. Tonight: Treat a friend to munchies and a drink. — The astrological forecast should be read for entertainment only.

Dear Annie: For the past year, my wife, “Janie,” has been getting hot flashes. She is always broiling in the house while the rest of the family freezes. She insists on keeping the temperature at 70, while the rest of us are most comfortable at 74. She recently purchased warm slippers for everyone and suggested we wear long sleeves. Annie, I like to wear T-shirts and walk barefoot. I work long hours, and when I come home, I like to shed most of my clothes. I pay the mortgage and should not be freezing in my own home. Our family doctor said the hot flashes could last for years. I say she is disrespectful to all of us. She says I am insensitive. We are at an impasse. I found out she is looking for an apartment. I love my wife and beg you to help us before it’s
