C Jay back for centennial celebration By Andy Hyland ahyland@ljworld.com

Henry Maloy would certainly approve. The cartoonist for the University Daily Kansan in 1912 created the first official visual depiction of the Jayhawk, a smiling, big-beaked, spindly-

legged design complete with shoes “for kicking opponents, of course,” according to an online university history of all things Jayhawk: ku.edu/ about/traditions/jayhawk. And on Saturday, Maloy’s creation sprang to life at the Kansas-Missouri game. Centennial Jay (or just C Jay

for short) joined Big Jay and Baby Jay as Kansas University’s third mascot. Maloy’s Jayhawk itself lasted until 1920, when it was replaced by a more dour and more birdlike creation sitting atop the letters “KU.” The mascot won’t be a permanent addition to KU’s

mascot lineup, though. Jim Marchiony, KU associate athletic director, said C Jay will only be around for this year. “It’s something to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Jayhawk,” he said. Kansas Athletics, the Kansas Memorial Unions and the KU Alumni Association

are involved in determining how the new mascot will be used, he said. The current plan calls for C Jay to flutter around at various special events and other occasions throughout the year.

Project would violate code By Chad Lawhorn clawhorn@ljworld.com

A public slaughtering of chickens won’t happen inside Lawrence city limits after a local artist was warned her planned art project could subject her to a fine under the city’s animal cruelty ordinance. Amber Hansen, the artist proposing “The Story of Chickens: A Revolution,” said Monday she will be changing her public art event in order to comply with city code. But the project will move forward, Hansen said, and will do so in a way that draws attention to the process of slaughtering animals. “If people choose to eat meat, it is an important process to witness and be mindful of,” Hansen said. “It is a process that takes place on a mass scale every day, and we aren’t really allowed to see it.” And don’t expect to see it on a Lawrence street or even on a piece of private property anytime soon. Assistant City Attorney Chad Sublet confirmed he informed Hansen a public slaughtering of chickens would be interpreted as a violation of the city’s animal cruelty code, which states it is illegal for “any person to willfully or maliciously kill any domesticated animal.” Under the city’s code, chickens are considered domesticated fowl. “I think one could argue there is a freedom of expression interest here, but I think under our obligations to protect the health, safety and public welfare, it is an activity we can regulate,” said Sublet, who added preventing

School finance lawsuit looms over Legislature By Scott Rothschild srothschild@ljworld.com

Gov. Brownback proposes to remove state limits on local property taxes for school funding.

TOPEKA — Gov. Sam Brownback says it is a good legal strategy for legislators to change the school finance formula just before a trial on education funding. But John Robb, an attorney who represents school districts suing the state, said Brownback’s plan would provide no legal protection. “Playing games with the court system in an attempt to

As an old attorney and litigator, the time to settle something is before you go to trial, rather than afterwards,” he said. Landon Fulmer, Brownback’s policy director and point man on the school finance proposal, told legislators that Brownback’s Please see LAWSUIT, page 2A

year, Galloway struck Evinger in the head, causing him to fall to the ground. Galloway’s juvenile passenger punched and kicked Ramsdell during the incident. “Although Officer Evinger was severely injured, he continued to stave off the attack by the two by deploying his pepper spray on the passenger,” Khatib said during a ceremony Monday, which was one year and one day after the incident. “Soon, against seemingly overwhelming odds, both officers were able to place the suspects under arrest.” Galloway is now serving a five-year prison sentence for a conviction on aggravated battery on a law enforcement officer. Evinger’s injuries changed his law enforcement career. He suffered a concussion and damage to his eye, which kept him from patrol. Ramsdell suffers cuts, bruising and swelling to his face. He later returned to regular duty. Khatib said Evinger will go into medical retirement. “I want to personally thank you for four years of outstanding service,” Khatib said. “And it really saddens me that you can’t stay on any longer.” During an emotional ceremony at the police department’s Investigations and Training Center, 4820 Bob Billings Parkway, Khatib presented Evinger with the department’s first Purple Heart award to honor officers injured in the line of duty. Evinger and Ramsdell stood with family members and accepted department commendation awards from Khatib.

proposed legislation contains “something that is unique to a bill of this magnitude: It sunsets after four years.” Fulmer added: “This is important not only for ensuring that the Legislature can stay ahead of lawsuits, but also for appropriate public discussion at regular intervals of the thing we spend about half of the SGF (state general fund) on year to year. This is truly the Kansas way.” He also said that passage of Brownback’s proposal by the Legislature “will reset the clock on any lawsuit.” Robb, the attorney representing 55 school districts that claim the state is underfunding education, said that won’t work. “The governor’s approach is an attempted end-run around funding the known costs (of education),” he said. “If his plan is adopted, the courts won’t buy it. His remarks about loss of flexibility show that he understands this concept. The courts are highly likely to order that the known costs be funded. This will cost more,” Robb said. How much more? Here, Brownback and Robb are in agreement. Both say the costs could reach $1 billion. Based on a previous Kansas Supreme Court decision, the Legislature approved a three-year funding increase to schools, but before the final year was allocated, the Legislature started cutting education funds. Robb said school cuts have totaled $455 million, and schools were underfunded before the cuts. Base state aid is now $3,780 per student, the lowest it has been in a decade. Fulmer has said a $1 billion settlement is the equivalent of either a 36-mill statewide property tax increase, or a 3 percent increase in the state sales tax, or a 2 percent increase in income taxes. “We have to act now to head this off,” he said. But Robb said $1 billion is less than half what it would cost to eliminate the state income tax, which Brownback has proposed. “The problem is that the Constitution requires that schools be funded but not that taxes be cut,” Robb said. Meanwhile, Democrats in the Legislature have argued that starting to restore school funding cuts from the state’s growing reserve fund would be the better path. The school finance formula, they argue, is not broken, simply inadequately funded. — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

was about the only indication school board members gave Monday night on where they stood on closing elementary schools.

About that pyramid of beer bottles in your garage following Saturday’s game: You don’t have to keep it anymore, unless of course you want to. Lawrence city officials on Monday unveiled four new locations where glass can be dropped off for recycling. “There has been a lot of glass dropped off at the Walmart recycling center since the 12th and Haskell center stopped taking it several weeks ago,” said Kathy Richardson, the operations supervisor for the city’s Waste Reduction and Recycling Division. “This should help alleviate that a lot.” The city will run the program in cooperation with Ripple Glass, which will take the glass and sell it to companies that will use it to make beer bottles for Kansas City’s Boulevard Brewing Co. and fiberglass insulation. The bin locations:

Dillons, 4701 W. Sixth St.

 Hy-Vee, 3504 Clinton Parkway

Hy-Vee, 4000 W. Sixth St.

 On the Rocks liquor store, 1818 Mass. City crews will monitor the bins each day and will empty the glass once the bins become more than half full.

Board gives go-ahead to school improvement projects By Christine Metz cmetz@ljworld.com

The Lawrence school board agreed to move forward with more than $750,000 worth of building improvements for elementary schools that had been earmarked for potential closure just a few months ago. On Monday night, the board accepted a $3.65 million capital improvement plan, with many of the projects slated to begin this summer. For the past six months, a community working group has been

studying ways to consolidate six elementary schools — New York, Cordley, Kennedy, Pinckney, Sunset Hill and Hillcrest — down to three or four. The working group’s two recommendations — one that advised not closing any schools and another that maintained consolidating schools was a viable option but didn’t say which ones should close — were finalized Thursday. Last year as talks of closing elementary schools were under way, the board pulled funding to fix Kennedy’s roof. That

$600,000 expense was added back into the capital improvement plan the board approved Monday night. Also SCHOOLS on the list were $20,000 for replacing flooring and another $30,000 for repairing pavement at Pinckney, $80,000 for replacing rooftop HVAC units at Sunset Hill and $25,000 for new cafeteria tables at Hillcrest. Keeping funding for smaller elementary schools in the capital improvement plan

Brandon Woods seeks dismissal of lawsuit

Lawrence educator 1 of 7 Kan. Master Teachers By Christine Metz cmetz@ljworld.com

———

Sexual assault of ex-resident alleged By George Diepenbrock gdiepenbrock@ljworld.com

Attorneys for Brandon Woods at Alvamar are asking a Douglas County judge to dismiss a lawsuit filed by a family of a former resident alleging she was sexually assaulted at the retirement center. The family of Jean S. Allen filed the suit in January alleging that an unnamed nursing aide sexually assaulted Allen, who was 87, on Oct. 20, 2010, in her room and that staff members at the retirement center, 1501 Inverness Drive, acted to conceal it from authorities, her family and medical personnel. Brandon Woods officials have denied the claim and said Allen was well cared for. “Certainly, the essential factual allegations — including the claim that Mrs. Allen was the victim of a criminal act while at Brandon Woods — will be soundly and vigorously challenged at the appropriate time,” Brandon Woods’ attorney, Kelly A. Ricke, wrote in a memorandum filed in the case. “However, at this juncture in the proceedings the defendants move to dismiss the petition.” Ricke’s memorandum mentions that the “unknown Brandon Woods employee” was neither arrested nor prosecuted and that Brandon Woods staff members interviewed Allen’s roommate who reported the alleged assault and sent Allen to Lawrence Memorial Hospital for an examination. Douglas County prosecutors have said in January

there was no longer an active criminal investigation in the case. Lawrence attorney Bill Skepnek, representing Allen’s family, in the suit alleged that staff members tried to hide the reason for the hospital visit from medical personnel. Ricke made several legal arguments against the many claims in the suit. “All plaintiffs’ claims at best relate to alleged medical malpractice,” Ricke wrote. “The plaintiffs have failed to state a cause of action as to any other alleged claims.” Brandon Woods’ attorneys argue on some claims that Allen’s family members are prohibited from seeking damages under law. In another part of the memorandum, the attorneys argue that the claims the family seeks have abated with Allen’s death because a jury “would have to guess” on the extent and nature of her injuries and personal suffering without her presence or testimony. According to the suit, Allen’s family later moved her to a different care facility. She died Nov. 26, 2010. Skepnek argued in the suit that Brandon Woods staff members destroyed evidence of a possible sexual assault when they bathed her, but the Brandon Woods attorneys argue the plaintiffs “must include a claim that staff members knew of the ‘evidence’ and allegedly destroyed it with such knowledge in hand.”

A Southwest Middle School teacher has been named to the 2012 class of Kansas Master Teachers. Kendra Metz, who teaches language arts and reading, is one of seven educators across the state who received the award. Master Teachers are recognized for their years of service and for their outstanding teaching qualities. Metz has spent 18 years in the Lawrence school district. In that time, she has been at Central Junior High, Quail Run, Prairie Park and Woodlawn. In the fall, Metz was among the teachers who helped transition sixth-grade students from the elementary school to the middle school, moving from Hillcrest to Southwest Middle School. Before that move, she spent six years at Hillcrest. There, she was well-known for incorporating Italian Restaurant Day into the curriculum, a project where students would learn about applying for jobs, making pasta and serving custom-

She was honored with the Lawrence Master Teacher award, which comes with a $2,500 check from KU Credit Union. From there, she was nominated for the state competition. According to the program, key to Metz’s success is her ability to “find each student’s unique needs, take interest in her students outside the classroom and use inventive projects to expand their learning and give back to the community.” As part of the Kansas Master Teachers program, two of the seven teachers will have the chance to teach education students at Emporia State University for part of the semester. A ceremony honoring the 2012 class will be April 4 at Emporia State University. — Reporter Christine Metz can be reached at 832-6352.

In the position, Prothro oversees much of the budgeting, policy issues, planning and managerial hiring for the Wichita system, which includes eight branch libraries.

Prothro received her undergraduate degree from Wichita State University in 1999, and a master’s degree in library sciences from Emporia State University in 2003. Library leaders are seeking a new director to replace Bruce Flanders, who retired in October and then took another position with an area library.

Glass

Ripple, founded in late 2009, recycled 18,000 tons of glass. Utz said the area is in a unique situation of operating a successful glass recycling business because there are several users or recycled glass in the Kansas City area. He said most areas struggle to recycle glass because the cost to transport the material very far is greater than the selling price of recycled glass. “When we started looking at this, there were 80,000 tons of glass in Kansas City going into the landfill each year,” Utz said. “We saw there was a huge opportunity there, but it has taken awhile to figure out a system.” It is not taking Lawrence residents long to figure out there’s a new glass recycling system

up and running. The bin at On the Rocks was drawing users on Monday morning while city officials were holding a ceremony to open the service. “I will be using it a lot,” said Rachel Hunter, who said she lives three blocks from the new bin. “Recycling should be easier to do in Lawrence, and this will help.” The new bins are a definite shade of purple, but not even that seemed to cause many concerns with Lawrence residents on Monday. “We can get over that,” said Matt Easley, general manager of On the Rocks, “especially if we keep winning.”

The glass will be stored on city-owned land at the former Farmland Industries property. When enough glass to fill a semi has been accumulated, Ripple will pay to have the glass shipped to its facility in Kansas City. Mayor Aron Cromwell said Monday he sees the new system as a step toward increasing the city’s recycling Cromwell efforts. The city’s Solid Waste Task Force has recommended creating a new citywide curbside recycling service. But Cromwell said such a service can’t feasibly accept glass, which led him to approach Ripple about creating a Lawrence service several months ago. “I just see these four bins as a first step,” Cromwell said. “We want to look at how we can expand it downtown and have them near several bars and restaurants that produce a lot of bottles.” The service accepts more than just glass bottles. Mike Utz, a principal in Ripple Glass, said his company also uses food jars and can accept both dark and clear glass. The dark glass is used to produce new bottles for Boulevard Brewing Co., and the clear glass is used by a Kansas City-based fiberglass insulation manufacturer.

ON THE RECORD

LJWORLD.COM/BLOTTER

LAW ENFORCEMENT REPORT • A 51-year-old Lawrence man was arrested Sunday night after he was accused of throwing a brick through his neighbor’s window and threatening two Lawrence police officers with a knife, according to Douglas County court records. The incident was reported just after 7 p.m. Sunday in the 800 block of Louisiana Street, police spokeswoman Kim Murphree said. According to court records, prosecutors charged the man, Robert W. Schmitt, with two counts of an aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer and one felony count of criminal damage. A judge set his bond at $45,000. • Also Sunday night, police determined a Lawrence man had suffered a self-inflicted gunshot wound while on a trail in southern Lawrence, said Sgt. Damon Thomas, a patrol shift supervisor. Initially, the man reported he had been shot by someone while jogging just before 11 p.m. Sunday in the area near the 2700 block of Louisiana Street. But he later changed his story, Thomas said. Murphree said Monday morning the man went to a local treatment center for a nonlife-threatening wound.

ACCIDENT REPORT • A 43-year-old Lawrence woman was taken to an area

hospital after a two-vehicle accident about 7:35 a.m. Monday on Interstate 70 west of Lawrence, according to the Kansas Turnpike Authority. The crash occurred about one mile west of the Lecompton interchange in the westbound lanes. Travis M. Haas, 37, of Lawrence, was driving a 2002 Isuzu sport utility vehicle in the inside lane when he attempted to change lanes to the right but then swerved to avoid a 1986 Chevrolet truck that was in the center lane. Haas then lost control of the SUV and struck the truck and the median wall several times, according to the accident report. Haas and Paul C. Hahn, 47, of Lawrence, the driver of the truck were not injured. The injured woman, Patricia Rice, was a passenger in Haas’ vehicle. Everyone was wearing a seat belt.

animal cruelty is a “significant public interest.” Sublet also said the keeping of any chicken on private property would require Hansen to abide by local codes that regulate the number and manner in which chickens can be housed in the city. Original plans called for a coop of chickens to be displayed at various locations around town, and volunteers would help care for the birds. The exhibit was slated to end with public slaughtering of the birds, which then would be served up as a meal. Sublet reviewed the legal issues at the request

The artist said she doesn’t plan to challenge the city’s interpretation. “People can raise chickens and eat meat in the city limits, but this event can’t take place,” Hansen said. “So, it raises a different set of questions for me.” Hansen on Monday said she was finalizing details of what her event would include. She said she plans to release details in the next day or so after meeting with other partners. She said she still plans to have an event at the Percolator art gallery, 913 R.I.

The project will move forward to accommodate that discussion, but it will abide by the city’s codes.” The fine for violating the city’s animal cruelty code can be up to $1,000 and six months in jail, Sublet said. — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362.

Deserting the arts The governor’s funding plan isn’t enough to put the Kansas Arts Commission back on its feet or, apparently, even to claim the state’s share of federal arts money.

W

hen Gov. Sam Brownback visited with Journal-World staff members before the start of the current legislative session, he said he planned to revisit the issue of state funding for the Kansas Arts Commission, which he used a veto to cut out of the budget last year. It was an encouraging sign, but it now appears that the steps the governor has proposed fall short of putting the Arts Commission back on even a marginally solid footing. Brownback’s budget included $200,000, drawn from state gaming revenue, to fund the combined efforts of the Kansas Arts Commission and the Kansas Film Commission, both of which would be under the Department of Commerce. The Film Commission had previously received $110,000 in state funding, supposedly leaving only $90,000 for the Arts Commission. That’s far less than the $689,000 Brownback vetoed last year and falls far short of supporting the basic needs of the Arts Commission. The most tangible loss the state suffered as a result of the governor’s veto was about $1.3 million from the National Endowment for the Arts. The national group determined that Kansas wasn’t eligible for matching funds because it no longer had a state-supported arts agency. In fact, Kansas is the only state in the nation in that situation. The most important part of any action concerning the Kansas Arts Commission should be to restore the agency to the point it would qualify for federal funding — some of which was contributed by Kansas residents but now is going to other states. Brownback and his staff said last year that they believed the state still would be eligible for NEA funds despite the vetoed funding. It was not. The first thing the governor’s office should have done this year is find out what Kansas needed to do to requalify for federal funding. Senate President Steve Morris said last week that the governor’s funding proposal would not bring back the federal dollars, and the governor’s office has done nothing to dispute that claim. Last week, the Kansas House approved legislation that would add an arts checkoff to the state income tax form. It would be one of five checkoffs competing for funding that has been declining overall for the last five years. That is not the answer. The state also plans to sell license plates to raise money for the arts, but as a representative of the independent Kansas Citizens for the Arts pointed out, license plates and tax checkoffs are fundraising efforts, not public funding. It’s also worth considering how many Kansans will want to donate, either through a checkoff or license-plate purchase, to a state arts agency that is so underfunded that it lacks the organization to use those donations well. The governor reportedly said in a press conference last week that he wants Kansas to be a center for prairie art. It’s not clear exactly what the governor has in mind, but his funding plan certainly will leave the Kansas arts community stranded in a no man’s land every bit as desolate as the most barren piece of Kansas prairie.

Anti-immigration law would hurt U.S. If Mitt Romney becomes the next president of the United States and honors his latest vow to turn the Arizona immigration law into a “model” for the entire country, life in America could become quite unpleasant for many of us who look like immigrants, or speak English with a foreign accent. In the Feb. 22 Republican debate in Arizona, where Romney and his main rival Rick Santorum were competing for the state’s anti-illegal immigration vote, Romney praised Arizona’s E-Verify system to check employees’ immigration status and said, “I think we see a model here in Arizona.” He added that, if elected, he would stop current federal lawsuits against Arizona-style laws “from day one.” “Dios Mio!” I said to myself when I heard that. Judging from what we have seen in states that have passed Arizona-styled laws, that would lead to arbitrary arrests and interrogations not only of undocumented immigrants, but of legal residents and U.S. citizens as well. The 2010 Arizona law requires, among other things, that local police demand immigration papers when they have a reasonable suspicion that a person is in the country illegally. It was suspended after a federal lawsuit questioning its constitutionality and is before the U.S. Supreme Court. Supporters of the law deny it would lead to a wild goose chase of foreign-looking people, and to widespread harassment of immigrants.

Andres Oppenheimer aoppenheimer@miamiherald.com

Can you imagine what would happen in tourism and foreign trade-dependent states such as Florida if Arizona-like laws became the law of the land?” They say the law does not allow police officers to stop people at random, because it specifically requires that they demand immigration papers only when they carry out a “lawful stop, detention or arrest.” But those are vague terms, critics say. A police officer wanting to make overtime could legally stop people to ask whether they saw something suspicious around the corner, then arrest them for not having proper immigration papers. In addition, the Arizona law requires that local police act as immigration inspectors not only when they legally stop somebody for a crime, but also when they do it for a violation of a city ordinance. If somebody calls the po-

lice to complain that a neighbor is playing music too loud at a party next door, an officer could show up at the party and detain anybody there who can’t prove their legal status, opponents of the law say. “The central problem is that it opens the door to widespread racial profiling based on what individuals look like or sound like,” Karen Tumlin, an attorney with the National Immigration Law Center in Los Angeles, told me last week. “The ‘reasonable suspicion’ wording would force cops to make judgments based on what people look like.” It has already happened, and not just with Latin American or Asia-born people. In Alabama, one of several states that has passed Arizona-styled laws, a German executive with Mercedes Benz was recently arrested under the state’s new immigration law near his company’s manufacturing plant for not carrying documents proving his legal immigration status, the Associated Press reported Nov. 19. The 46-year-old German visitor’s rental car was stopped by a police officer and the man was arrested when he could not prove his legal immigration status, Tuscaloosa Police Chief Steven Anderson told the wire agency. The visitor was released when an associate retrieved his passport from his hotel room. Two weeks later, a Japanese employee from a nearby Honda plant was arrested and jailed for three days un-

der Alabama’s immigration law after he was stopped during a checkpoint used by police to detect unlicensed drivers, even after he showed his international driver’s license, a valid passport and a U.S. work permit. There have been dozens of similar cases since Alabama’s anti-immigrations law was enacted. A recent study by Alabama’s Center for Business and Economic Research economist Sam Addy concluded that the Alabama law could cost the state as much as $10.8 billion a year. Another study says Arizona’s immigration law has cost that state’s tourism industry $490 million. Can you imagine what would happen in tourism and foreign trade-dependent states such as Florida if Arizona-like laws became the law of the land? Or what it would do to the real estate and convention industries in cities like Miami or New York? My opinion: By almost any measure, Arizona-style laws are morally questionable and economically disastrous, and increasingly unnecessary at a time when illegal immigration has dropped dramatically after the 2008 U.S. economic downturn. If Romney — and, to be fair, Santorum as well — stopped federal lawsuits against these xenophobic laws and allowed them to become a “model” for the entire nation, America would cease to be the country it has always been. — Andres Oppenheimer is a Latin America correspondent for the Miami Herald.

From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Feb. 28, 1912: YEARS “Four residents AGO of Lawrence, who IN 1912 had neglected to clean the snow from their sidewalks as is required by law, were arrested this afternoon and brought up before Judge Benson in the city police court. They pleaded guilty to the charge and each paid a fine and costs amounting to $10.50. The police department has been obliged to do this and the action of today may be taken as a warning to those whose walks are not cleaned in the future as the ordinance is to be more rigidly enforced in the future than in the past.” — Compiled by Sarah St. John

PUBLIC FORUM

Free to discriminate? Threat to democracy Oil supplies To the editor: Does “religious freedom” mean freedom to discriminate? Should we legalize discrimination against anyone? Should our religious leaders determine, on the basis of their claims of “freedom of religion,” who in our society merits “equal rights”? State Rep. Jan Paul of Hutchinson is opposed to equal rights for people who are gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender. She co-authored the constitutional amendment barring same-gender marriages in Kansas and she led the opposition to add sexual orientation and gender identity to the Kansas nondiscrimination statutes. Now Paul is at the center of a proposal to nullify local nondiscrimination ordinances on the basis of “freedom of religion.” (See the Feb. 21 Journal-World, “Lawrence Ordinance …”) Thousands of Kansans are LGBT. Tens of thousands family members, loved ones and friends in Kansas are committed to the proposition that “equal rights” must include people who are LGBT. Paul’s use of “freedom of religion” is a ruse for legalizing discrimination against people who are gay! She is calling on the Legislature to deny equal rights for people in Kansas who are LGBT. We cast our lot with those who insist that people who are LGBT deserve the same equal rights the rest of us enjoy! Forrest and Donna Swall, Lawrence

To the editor: Historically in the U.S., corporations were forbidden from participating in politics for good reason: the correctly anticipated power of highly concentrated corporate wealth to severely undermine an otherwise increasingly representative and pluralistic democracy in the U.S. With a major break from tradition in interpreting constitutional law, the highly biased 2010 Supreme Court judicial-overreach decision regarding “Citizens United” has severely damaged our country’s democracy. We now have the “best democracy that corporate money and the wealthy can buy.” It is time to overturn this horrendous decision, preferably with a congressional bill, which would meet less resistance than a constitutional amendment. Corporations, with inanimate charters and regulations, are not “people” as this very damaging, compromised-court decision would somehow have us believe. Global warming is approaching an irreversible “tipping-point” and, when combined with inadequate U.S. support of greater “fossilfuel-threatening” energy efficiency and renewable energy programs and measures, the result may very well be global ecosystem collapses. The ongoing policies of U.S. perpetual war-making — often for resources and profits — are taking us to the possible insane brink of nuclear war. We need our democracy back for many reasons — and we need it soon. Richard Wenzel, Lawrence

To the editor: This is in response to your Feb. 24 news story about President Obama being held responsible for the high price of gas. Why is it that, with all the calls for more oil-drilling and exploration, no one ever mentions that oil, gasoline and jet fuel are among the commodities most heavily exported from the United States? We are producing lots of oil in this country but the free market sends it to the highest bidder. Incidentally, in the case of environmental depredations like the contemplated Keystone XL pipeline, the logic is that we are supposed to endanger our water supply so that Canadian oil producers can enrich themselves by exporting more of their product. Richard F. Hardin, Lawrence

STILLWATER, OKLA. — After dancing with the Big 12 trophy late Monday night in a jubilant visitor’s locker room, Kansas University team leaders Tyshawn Taylor and Thomas Robinson modeled their ‘8 Str 8 Champs’ T-shirts and hats for media members in the Gallagher-Iba interview area.

Combine mixed bag for Johnson ————

KU linebacker fares well in agility drills but only OK in 40-yard dash, bench press By Matt Tait mtait@ljworld.com

FORMER KANSAS UNIVERSITY LINEBACKER STEVEN JOHNSON runs a drill at the NFL football scouting combine on Monday in Indianapolis.

In terms of all of the things casual fans believe the NFL combine to be about, Kansas University linebacker Steven Johnson had a pretty uneventful Monday in Indianapolis. In terms of all the things NFL scouts and coaches look for, it was pretty solid. Johnson, who Monday wrapped up a four-day stay at this year’s combine, performed well in most of the agility tests and turned in average showings in the drills that have transformed the combine from an industry-only meat market into a fan-friendly extravaganza

watched by thousands and scrutinized by even more. In the three most popular events — 40-yard dash, bench press and vertical jump — Johnson impressed in just one of them. His leap of 36 inches in the vertical test placed him ninth among all linebackers at this year’s combine. In the 40, which he ran twice, he finished with reported times of 4.65 seconds and 4.78 seconds. None of the results available Monday night were official, but both times were slower than the 4.5-second range Johnson had targeted. In the bench press, Johnson also fell shy of his goal, finishing with 16 reps at 225 pounds, at least four short

of the 20-plus mark he was hoping to hit. Although Johnson’s performance in those areas did little to improve his draft status, he likely helped himself tremendously on the field. Johnson excelled in most of the agility drills, finishing with the second-fastest reported time among linebackers in the three-cone drill (7.32 seconds), and the third-fastest times at his position in the 20yard shuttle drill (4.38) and 60-yard shuttle drill (11.93). Although NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock was not speaking specifically about Johnson during the broadcast, it’s clear that times like those helped Johnson’s standing.

“I don’t really care how many reps at 225 you do or how big and strong you think you are,” Mayock said. “The whole game today is movement skills. If you can open your hips and change direction, you can get on the field.” During one drill, in which lateral movement was put to the test, Johnson lost one of his shoes while making an early cut but continued through the drill and finished strong by catching a simulated interception and running hard through the finish line. “He’s running out of his shoes, fellas,” Mayock said at the time. “I think we’ll give Please see JOHNSON, page 3B

Royals lock up catcher Perez SURPRISE, ARIZ. (AP) — Salvador Perez wants to play in Kansas City for a long time, and the Royals are going to give him that chance. The 21-year-old catcher agreed to a five-year contract worth $7 million on Monday. The contract includes club options for three more years that could keep Perez with the Royals through the 2019 season. “I’m very happy,� Perez said. “I want to play in Kansas City for 20 years.� Perez made his major-league

debut on Aug. 10 and hit .331 with eight doubles, two triples, three home runs and 21 RBIs in 39 games. He has been chosen as the best defensive catcher in the Royals’ organization the past three years. “The first time I laid eyes on Sal, it took Perez me about two days to realize he was special,� said Royals

Miami mess haunts Haith COLUMBIA, MO. (AP) — Missouri coach Frank Haith said Monday that he is fully cooperating with the NCAA in the latest round of trouble at the University of Miami, his home for seven years before taking over the Tigers this season. The Hurricanes declared center Reggie Johnson ineligible over the weekend, saying his family received impermissible travel benefits from an unidentified member of Miami’s staff when Haith was in charge of the program. Miami has asked the NCAA to reinstate Johnson, and said the player wasn’t aware of the possible NCAA violation and didn’t directly receive anything.

I’ll just be glad when this thing’s over with.� Haith called Johnson’s suspension with three regular season games remaining “disappointing.� Despite losing forward Laurence Bowers to a season-ending knee injury before the first game and inheriting just seven scholarship players, Haith has drawn rave reviews in his first season in Columbia. No. 7 Missouri (25-4, 12-4 Big 12) remains poised for a high NCAA tournament seed even after an 87-86 overtime loss at Kansas over the weekend.

Haith has denied that allegation, and Jones has since been cleared to play by Miami after initially being sidelined this season. Miami said the improper travel benefits tied to Johnson were discovered as part of the “ongoing joint� inquiry by the school and the NCAA after Shapiro’s claims of providing cash, cars, prostitutes and other impermissible benefits to 72 Miami football players and other athletes between 2002 and 2010 with the knowledge of at least six coaches and as many as 10 athletic department employees overall. Shapiro has not been linked to the current situation involving Johnson. Missouri athletic director Mike Alden declined an interview request through a school spokesman.

He’s a very, very rare find. “You can’t find a catcher that has his athleticism, his ability to play defense at a high premium on a major league level. You’re not going to find a kid who has the ability to swing the bat like he does. And more impressive than anything else is his leadership skills and his ability to call a game. He’s the total package.�

Perez, who is from Venezuela, was signed by the Royals as a non-drafted free agent on Sept. 27, 2006. General manager Dayton Moore said there was a willingness on both sides to work out the long-term deal. “It’s very important to get as many of our good players signed long term as possible,� Moore said. “It gives Salvador some security. It gives us some cost certainty going forward. It’s a premium position ... We feel like we’ve got a very special player here.�

EMERGENCY WORKERS TRY TO PUT OUT A FIRE after Juan Pablo Montoya’s car struck the truck during the NASCAR Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway Monday night in Daytona Beach, Fla.

Matt Kenseth wins rainy, fiery Daytona 500 DAYTONA BEACH, FLA. — There was rain, fire, soap suds and fog in the most bizarre Daytona 500 in history. When it was all over, Matt Kenseth was the only sure thing. It wasn’t even close. Kenseth capped a crazy 36 hours for NASCAR by winning the first postponed Daytona 500 in 55 editions of the marquee event. He held off Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Roush Fenway Racing teammate Greg Biffle over a two-lap overtime finish in a race that was scheduled to begin Sunday afternoon but ended in the early morning hours Tuesday. Rain at Daytona International Speedway first forced NASCAR to push the race to Monday afternoon, then Monday night for the first-ever 500 in primetime television. Then a freak accident caused a massive fuel fire that stopped the race for two hours as safety workers used Tide laundry detergent to clean up the track. When the racing finally resumed, it was obvious it was Kenseth’s to lose as nobody had anything to challenge his Ford. Journeyman driver Dave Blaney was leading when a problem with Juan Pablo Montoya’s car sent him spinning under caution into a safety truck. The truck, which holds 200 gallons of jet kerosene, burst into flames. Montoya’s car slid into the grass, and he gingerly climbed from it as fire trucks rushed to the scene. The inferno raged on, and NASCAR red-flagged the race with 40 laps remaining. The race was delayed 2 hours, 5 minutes and 29 seconds while track workers scrambled to fix the track. NASCAR officials examined the track surface and determined the race could continue. Blaney’s lead was short-lived, however, as he had to pit for gas. Jet fuel poured down the surface of Turn 3 at Daytona International Speedway after the accident, creating a fiery lasting image of NASCAR’s biggest race of the year. The clean-up crews were using boxes of Tide laundry detergent to clean up the fuel. It was par for the course for this Daytona 500. It took several minutes for safety workers to put out the fire, and then came the task of removing the truck from the track and cleaning up all that spilled fuel. Towing the truck from the steep banking presented a challenge, as NASCAR was nervous any movement would dig into the track surface. Montoya, who said his helmet was singed in the fire and his foot ached, said he felt a vibration in his car before the accident. The drivers were allowed to exit their cars after about 10 minutes under the red flag. Dale Earnhardt Jr. had been complaining he had to go to the bathroom, and Brad Keselowski was posting to his Twitter account from inside his car. The racing was aggressive at the drop of the green flag, and the first accident occurred on just the second lap, when Elliott Sadler ran into the back of Jimmie Johnson as they drafted around the track. The contact sent Johnson into the wall, and as the five-time NASCAR champion slid back down across the track, he was hit hard in the door by David Ragan. The accident collected six cars total, including defending Daytona 500 winner Trevor Bayne and Danica Patrick.

COLLEGE BASKETBALL

UK, ‘Cuse stay 1-2 in Top 25 Kentucky and Syracuse are the top two teams in the Associated Press’ Top 25 for a fifth straight week, while Kansas moves up to a season-high No. 3. Kentucky received 63 first-place votes from the 65-member national media panel Monday with Syracuse getting the other two. Kansas, Duke, Michigan State and North Carolina all moved up one place to be third through sixth. Missouri, which lost twice last week, dropped four spots to seventh and was followed by Marquette, Baylor and Ohio State. Creighton is the week’s lone newcomer, returning to the rankings at No. 25 after two weeks out of the poll. The Bluejays, winners of four straight, replace New Mexico, which moved in last week for the first time this season at No. 18, then fell out after losing two games. Florida State, the third ranked team to lose two games last week, dropped from 15th to 22nd.

WOMEN’S BASKETBALL

Baylor holds steady at No. 1 Baylor stays the unanimous No. 1 choice in the Associated Press women’s college basketball poll. The Lady Bears received all the first-place votes Monday for the 13th straight week after routing Texas and Kansas. Baylor will try to finish the regular season as the lone unbeaten team when it plays at Texas A&M on Monday night and then hosts Iowa State on Saturday. Stanford, Notre Dame, Connecticut and Duke followed the Lady Bears. Maryland, Miami, Delaware, Penn State and Kentucky round out the first 10. Ohio State takes the biggest drop — six spots to 14th after losing to Penn State and Nebraska. South Carolina re-enters the rankings at No. 25 while DePaul falls out.

NBA

Sacramento close to Kings deal Building a new arena for the Sacramento Kings has never been closer to reality. The city, the Sacramento Kings and the NBA announced a tentative deal Monday to finance a new arena that would keep the team in California’s capital for the long haul. The City Council will vote on the plan March 6. Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson, NBA Commissioner David Stern and the Maloof family, which owns the Kings, emerged from three days of talks in Orlando, Fla., — where they had been negotiating all weekend during All-Star festivities — to announce that the framework of a deal had been reached.

Red Sox’s Varitek to retire A person familiar with the decision tells The Associated Press that Boston Red Sox catcher and captain Jason Varitek has decided to retire. The Boston Globe first reported Varitek’s decision. Varitek turns 40 in April. The three-time AllStar spent all 15 of his big league seasons with the Red Sox.

Baylor routs Tech The Associated Press

No. 9 Baylor 77, Texas Tech 48 WACO, TEXAS — Perry Jones III had 15 points and 10 rebounds, A.J. Walton scored a season-high 13 points, and Baylor won its home finale on Monday night. Walton matched his season-high with 10 points before halftime, when the Bears (25-5, 12-5 Big 12) were already in total control. Baylor closed the first half on a 25-4 run over the final 10:05, stretching its lead to 40-15. Texas Tech (8-21, 1-16) didn’t even have 20 points in the game until Jordan Tolbert’s dunk with 14:33 left made it 49-21. Tolbert led the Red Raiders with 19 points. “Tough night for us, obviously,” coach Billy Gillispie said. “Especially thought we competed hard at the start, but we couldn’t make any plays. Couldn’t finish at the basket, couldn’t get to the foul line, couldn’t make open shots. And then they got a great deal of confidence, and it just kind of steamrolled against us.” It was the final home game for the winningest senior class in Baylor history — Quincy Acy, Fred Ellis and Anthony Jones. Acy had 12 points and seven rebounds, including two big dunks just before coming out of the game to a huge ovation with about two minutes left. Right after that, Jones hit a threepointer from the top of the key to give him 13 points. “My feelings were mixed,” Acy said. “It was emotional playing my last game in the Ferrell Center. But we have a long way to go in the season.” Even the little-used Ellis, who hadn’t scored a point since Dec. 19, made two free throws. With one more regular season game left before the conference tournament next week and then another NCAA Tournament, the senior trio has already been part of 95 wins. That includes the school-record 12 Big 12 victories this season. During the freshman season for each of them, the Bears made it to the Big 12 tournament championship game and were the NIT runner-up in 2008. A year later, they were part of the school-record 28 wins as Baylor advanced to an NCAA regional final against eventual national champion Duke.

Baylor women hold off A&M COLLEGE STATION, TEXAS (AP) — Brittney Griner and Odyssey Sims scored 25 points each, and topranked Baylor used a late run to hold off No. 17 Texas A&M, 69-62, on Monday night. Baylor (30-0, 17-0 Big 12) led by one point before going on a 6-0 run that was aided unintentionally by an official. Griner made a jump shot before Kimetria Hayden knocked the ball out of Alexia Standish’s hands. With the ball almost sure to go out of bounds, it bounced off an official and remained on the court, setting up a layup by Sims.

Iowa State (21-8, 115) plays at second-place and No. 7 Missouri (25-4, 12-4) on Wednesday night. “For senior night, if you have a close team, everybody feels the pressure,” Drew said. “They really want to do well for the seniors.

KANSAS 70, OKLAHOMA STATE 58

L AWRENCE J OURNAL -W ORLD

Cowboys credit Taylor for ‘big’ shots By Jesse Newell jnewell@ljworld.com

STILLWATER, OKLA. — During almost every timeout of the second half, coach Travis Ford kept telling his players that they had enough time to make a comeback. The score was manageable. All Oklahoma State had to do was make one run at Kansas University to be right in the game. In the end, Kansas guard Tyshawn Taylor never let that run happen. “He would just always

make a big shot,” Ford said following his team’s 70-58 loss to KU on Monday. A Keiton Page three cut KU’s lead to 60-52 with 5:10 remaining before Taylor went on a personal 10-0 run to push KU’s advantage to 18. “We’d make a play, and they’d come right back and make a play,” OSU guard Brian Williams said. “We’d hit a three; they’d hit a three. We never could just close that gap to make it a game.” OSU also had problems stopping KU forward

Thomas Robinson, who had 17 points and 11 rebounds. “Give Kansas credit,” Ford said. “They have the best junior in the country and one of the best seniors in the country.” Ford sensed that his guys played a bit tight during Page’s Senior Night. The day before in practice, many of Page’s teammates had talked about the importance of playing well for Page. “It almost puts a little too much pressure on you,” Ford said. For example, Page’s

roommate, Markel Brown, had just seven points on 2-for-9 shooting. It was his lowest output in his last seven games. Page himself didn’t seem to be affected by the emotional night. The Pawnee, Okla., native finished with 29 points on 10-for-19 shooting. He also made seven of 14 threes. In a pregame ceremony, while being honored as the team’s only senior, the 5-foot-9 guard was hoisted on a pair of his teammates’ shoulders, much like a victorious Super Bowl coach.

Kansas to face A&M or OU in tourney

“These guys are crazy, so when I saw them running at me, I didn’t know what they were going to do,” Page said. “I was just ready for them to put me down before they did something too crazy.” Right before the Cowboys left the locker room, they watched a highlight film showing some of Page’s best plays from his freshman year up until this season. Ford was amazed that at only 5-foot-9, Page was still able to put up high point totals with opposing

defenses focusing solely on him. “It borders on incredible that he keeps doing it,” Ford said. “We’re riding him.” Ford admitted that he wasn’t looking forward to Monday’s game, knowing that it would be Page’s last at Gallagher-Iba Arena. In his four years of coaching him, Ford couldn’t remember Page complaining once about anything. “He may not always play perfect,” Ford said, “(but) a lot of times, he did.”

STILLWATER, OKLA. — Big 12 officials indicated that as No. 1 seed in the upcoming Big 12 Tournament, KU will meet either Oklahoma or Texas A&M at 2 p.m. a week from Thursday in Sprint Center in Kansas City, Mo.

Withey rebound goes awry: A crazy thing happened with 1:23 left. Keiton Page missed the front end of a 1-and-1. Jeff Withey rebounded and tossed the ball to a ref, who was out of bounds. OSU received possession of the ball on the inbounds. “If the game had ended different, he wouldn’t have ended well. His players would have jumped his butt,” KU coach Bill Self said with a laugh, referring to Withey. “That wouldn’t be ESPN Top Ten. It would have been No. 1 (play of the day). I’ve never seen that happen in a game, a player get a rebound and tosses it back to the official (live). That is unbelievable.” Withey said: “I got the rebound. I looked up. Everybody was standing still. I thought it was two shots. I threw it to the ref. He backed up. I felt so dumb, but I can’t take it back. All I can do is laugh about it and be happy we won the Big 12.” Withey said the left foot he sprained in Saturday’s Missouri game felt fine.

than that game. Our guys were pretty efficient.” Robinson agreed that the Jayhawks were dead tired. “Coach said something in the locker room, that this was an emotional letdown. That’s a good way to describe it,” Robinson said. “We were so high the other night, so geeked up. Today we were still talking about it. Our bodies were tired. We had to come back and get it rolling today.” The victory and title seemed to energize the Jayhawks, who posed for pictures with the trophy with family members and fans before heading to the team bus. “Where’s the trophy?” Robinson said, unable to locate it. Freshman Merv Lindsay had carted it safely to the team bus, signaling it was time for the players to board the vehicle for a four-hour ride home. “This team,” Self said, “has been awfully fun to coach.” Next up is an 8 p.m. regular-season finale against Texas on Saturday in Allen Fieldhouse. It’s Senior Night for Taylor, Jordan Juenemann and Conner Teahan.

A Visit to ‘The Amish’ The thoughtful “American Experience” presentation “The Amish” (7 p.m., PBS, check local listings) begins by following tourists and tour buses as they besiege Pennsylvania Dutch country in Lancaster County. According to the film, roughly a quarter of a million Amish live in the United States, visited annually by millions of tourists. They come to gawk, as if visiting a zoo or Disneyland, to eat home-baked pies and perhaps to ponder what life would be like in a society that shuns the technology and consumerism that most of us take for granted. The Amish, we are told, dislike being filmed or photographed up close. But they will submit to offcamera interviews. So most of “The Amish” unfolds with voiceovers accompanying soft-focused footage of gorgeous landscapes right out of a Chamber of Commerce film. Between personal anecdotes about living the simple life, we’re spoon-fed history about the Amish and their 300 years living in America. As one scholar observes, until the late 19th century, the Amish were just one small religious sect among many, living on farms like upward of 90 percent of Americans. Only with the advent of industrialization, urbanization, cars, electricity and the blanketing of the airwaves with an advertising-based mass media, did the Amish begin to withdraw. They rejected clothing adornments (like buttons) that enhanced vanity and forbade those things that would break down their community. After a mass murder in Amish country in 2006, outsiders were shocked to hear about parents of the victims comforting the widow of the killer. As one Amish man explains here, forgiveness comes more easily when you delegate judgment and feelings of vengeance to a higher power. ‘‘The Amish” also looks at the other side of Amish devotion and seclusion, interviewing one woman who left the group after feeling suffocated by the simple way. Another woman found it hard to rid herself of an abusive husband in a tight-knit, insular community where the philosophy of submission is central to faith, family and society.

her daughter. I get very little. Is this normal behavior? — Concerned for Our Future Dear Concerned: No, it’s not normal for a college-age daughter to have no friends but Mom, and for a mother to encourage so much dependence. Such an enmeshed relationship is not only bad for your marriage. It also is crippling for Lori. Instead of helping her daughter learn self-reliance, Mom is being selfish by holding Lori so close that she deliberately prevents her from becoming an independent adult. We hope you can make your wife understand that this is poor parenting and in no one’s best interest.

JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS

For Tuesday, Feb. 28: This year you express an unusual openness to change, and you let go of the status quo. You can visualize better than you ever have. If you are single, a unique person walks into your life. If you are attached, the two of you share a common dream. Take the first step in making it so. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult Aries (March 21-April 19)  Your instincts serve you well concerning financial decisions. Focus on your goals and better communication. Not everyone needs to know the “how and why,” but simply the end decision. Tonight: Make time to visit and catch up on others’ news. Taurus (April 20-May 20)  Your ability to wow others and impress them emerges. You are surrounded by people who really do care. Though you might not need their support now, you might later on. Tonight: Do some shopping, if need be. Gemini (May 21-June 20)  It’s OK to feel down in the dumps right now. You might see a situation in a very negative light. What will it take to turn that perspective around? Tonight: Nap, then decide. Cancer (June 21-July 22)  Use the daylight hours to the max. You express an unusual perspective and can communicate it well. Integrate new information for others so that they can see a new path. Tonight: Play it low-key. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)  Assume your place in the limelight. An associate keeps whispering what he or she feels is important information to know. Listen, but also set limits to the conversation. Tonight: Squeeze in some fun time.

able for me, and I have been asking them to adjust their thermostats. A trusted pal recently told me she thought this was rude, especially when it doesn’t trouble other guests. She suggested I wear layers and tough it out. What do you suggest I do? — Too Hot or Too Cold Dear Too: Wear layers and tough it out. Etiquette says you don’t get to tell your friends how to heat and cool their homes. And if you are the only one discomfited by the temperature, the problem is you and not the thermostat. Please see your doctor for a checkup.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)  You might want to approach a situation differently. The feedback you are receiving points to another path. Get adequate feedback from another person. Tonight: A force to be dealt with. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  Work with individuals. You could hear radically different opinions, which makes it clear, once more, that you must go your own way. Tonight: Detach, then look at a situation. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  Others challenge you, but know that it is simply a phase. On the other hand, you have the wherewithal to know when to hold your ground. Tonight: Make time for a special person. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)  Discussions and comments reveal much more about where others are coming from. Don’t stop what you are doing to comment. Just be a good listener; you might be amazed. Tonight: Out. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)  No one knows how to stir the pot quite like you do. You might even do it unintentionally. Your very presence and how you deal with your life could incite some crazy responses. Tonight: Try for an early bedtime. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  Family weighs on your mind. You are not always comfortable with what is going on, nor should you be. Tonight: What starts as serious evolves into fun. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)  Your way of saying “enough” works. Someone who does not like to hear you put an end to a certain topic could be trying to get your attention. Tonight: Out and about.

Dear Annie: My wife and I have been married for 20 years. She has a grown daughter from her first marriage. I watched “Lori” grow up and love her as my own. My wife always has been fiercely defensive of Lori. I can’t say anything remotely negative or critical about her without risking a big argument. Even the suggestion of having Lori help around the house or clean up her room would cause a fight. Lori is a good kid, but she has never wanted for anything. My wife makes no secret of the fact that Lori comes first in her life. Lori is now in her early 20s and is a senior in college. Even though she is taking only two classes a week, she doesn’t have a job and is unmotivated to get one. My wife makes all kinds of excuses for her. Meanwhile, we pay all of her

There was his official time of 4.41 seconds in the 40-yard dash, fastest among quarterbacks, and the Heisman Trophy winner believes he ran even faster. And there were interviews with at least eight teams, including the Indianapolis Colts, who have the No. 1 draft pick. “I think I was able to go out there and affirm to the scouts how athletic I am, or impress them even more,” Griffin said Monday. “I was able to show people that I am as advertised. I’m a good guy, I like to make people laugh. I can’t remember a meeting I didn’t go in and we weren’t laughing. “You go there and do what you’re supposed to do, create a buzz for yourself,” he said. Maybe Griffin gave the Colts more to consider amid consistent speculation that they will use the top pick April 26 on Stanford’s Andrew Luck, the Heisman runner-up. If nothing else, RG3 likely created even more of a premium for the No. 2 pick held by St. Louis. The Rams already have a young quarterback in Sam Bradford and could be willing to deal the pick. Neither Griffin or Luck threw over the weekend. They will wait until their pro days later this month. As for his already-impressive 40-yard dash, Griffin said he was given a better time when he had finished running. He said his representatives are checking into that. “I was told on the field that it was 4.35 officially.

BAYLOR QUARTERBACK ROBERT GRIFFIN III WARMS UP at the NFL football scouting combine on Sunday in Indianapolis. They told me it was faster than what the screen had posted,” Griffin said. “If that happens to be the right time, that’s nothing to be mad about, 4.41 is a great time. But you want to make sure the right time is put up there.” Griffin’s pro day will be on the Baylor campus March 21, the day before Luck has his. Among the familiar receivers Griffin will get to throw to is Bears teammate Kendall Wright, an NFL prospect himself. Baylor’s first Heisman Trophy winner was back on campus to do a photo shoot for EA Sports’ NCAA Football 13 game. The game will be released July 10 with RG3 sharing the cover with one of eight former Heisman winners that will be determined by a fan vote. When asked if he wanted to be posed as a thrower or a runner, Griffin smiled and quickly responded, “Thrower. I’m a quarterback, not a running back.” While he’s still plenty fast, the former track star has proven he can throw the football. Griffin is the school’s career passing leader, with

it a game at a time, a day at a time. I know in Oklahoma City, we look forward to getting better every day, and we’ll see what happens.” Miami and Oklahoma City rolled into the break with a share of the NBA’s best record at 27-7. The Heat have won eight in a row in overwhelming fashion; the Thunder have won five straight and are 15-1 at home. The East appears to be shaping up as a two-team race between the Heat and Bulls, who are a halfgame back despite battling injuries to All-Stars Derrick Rose and Luol Deng and especially to Richard Hamilton. Hamilton, signed to upgrade the shooting guard position. Indiana and Philadelphia have been surprisingly strong, Orlando is in fourth, New York has recovered from a poor start behind Jeremy Lin and Boston hopes to bounce back from a disappointing first half, but a rematch of last year’s Eastern Conference finals appears likely. The playoff picture is less clear in the West. San Antonio surged into the break despite playing for much of the first half without Manu Ginobili;

the Los Angeles Clippers have become quick contenders since acquiring Chris Paul; and Dallas may still be good enough for a long playoff run. Then there’s the Lakers, whose rocky road will have taken another bad turn if the broken nose Kobe Bryant sustained after a hard foul by Wade in the All-Star game forces him to miss time. With the lockout delaying the season and reducing it to 66 games, the AllStar break actually comes right at the midpoint of the season. Many teams were happy to have the break and eager for practice time after so little was available because of the frequency of games. That hasn’t affected the Heat or Thunder, who rank first and third in the NBA in scoring with 103.7 and 102.7 points, respectively. Miami has been as dominant as expected when it put its trio together. The Thunder were built more gradually, winning just 23 games three seasons ago. They reached the West finals last year and seem poised to go further now. And come June, Heat and Thunder could in the NBA’s forecast.

Short NBA season half-done, but plenty of basketball remains ORLANDO, FLA. (AP) — Kevin Durant says it’s too early to think about a potential Heat-Thunder NBA finals. It seems hard to ignore at the season’s midpoint. The teams share the league’s best record and both rolled into the AllStar break. With Durant and Russell Westbrook on one side and LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh looking to avenge their finals disappointment, the series could be a thriller. But Chicago is right on Miami’s heels in the East, and a number of contenders could emerge for the Thunder out West. The second half opens Tuesday, and the other big story is Dwight Howard’s situation. Orlando has to decide by the March 15 deadline if it will keep or trade its franchise center. LeBron James and the Heat burn for a second chance. Kevin Durant and the Thunder are storming toward their first opportunity. An NBA finals matchup is easy to picture. Durant isn’t looking. “It’s too early for that,” the All-Star game MVP said. “We’re trying to take
