Local artist will neither kill nor display chickens By Chad Lawhorn

JOYCE BARKLEY SITS THURSDAY near what’s left of her barn and outbuildings on Woodson Road in southern Douglas County. Tuesday night’s EF-0 tornado, with 65 mph to 85 mph winds, damaged or destroyed many structures in the area.

Forget about a chicken in every pot. There won’t even be a chicken in every coop in Lawrence. The local artist who created a controversy by proposing a Lawrence art project that would end with a public slaughtering of chickens — to create a point about how disconnected consumers are from their food sources — has announced new plans for the project. The new plans include a lot fewer, well, chickens. Actually, no chickens will be a part of the project.

It wasn’t just high wind — an EF-0 twister tore through southern Douglas County By George Diepenbrock

Dental-related ER visits on the rise at LMH, nationally By Karrey Britt

Toothaches and other dental problems caused at least 17,500 emergency room visits in Kansas in 2010, according to a national report released this week by the Pew Center on the States. The number is likely significantly higher because 30 of the state’s 142 hospitals did not provide data on dental-related ER visits. Dr. Toni Reynolds, who works in the emergency room at Law-

rence Memorial Hospital, said the numbers are not surprising. “It’s a common problem. I’ve seen it everywhere I’ve ever worked,” she said of dental emergencies. Among the common problems are pain from cavities and tooth abscess. She said health care professionals can provide pain relief and antibiotics in the ER, but they can’t pull teeth. “We can provide kind of a bridge until they can get to a dentist. They still need to see a dentist for definitive care,” she said. Last year, there were 488 ER

The show will end on April 21 at the Percolator art gallery, 913 R.I. Local chefs will share and prepare some food with the community, but Hansen stressed she has abandoned her original plan of serving a chicken noodle dinner made from chickens slaughtered as part of the art project. “Chickens will not be displayed, nor slaughtered and eaten as part of the project,” Hansen wrote on her blog. “Instead, a handful of invited speakers will share stories about their experience caring for chickens with an open discussion to follow.”

Lawrence police said animal control officers rescued the cat after it was shot twice on May 29, 2011, and officers had also said a witness alleged he heard a neighbor shoot what sounded like a gun earlier in the day.

Treatment. Emergency rooms are just a temporary fix and unlikely to provide lasting relief to the underlying oral health issue. Often these patients end up back in the ER. According to the report, the problem is a lack of dentists who accept Medicaid patients, and then that problem is exacerbated by a dental shortage. In Kansas:

93 of the 105 Kansas counties do not have enough dentists to serve their residents.

12 Kansas counties have no dentist at all.

60 counties don’t have enough dentists who accept Medicaid or help the uninsured — and Douglas County is one of them. There are about 60 licensed dentists in the county; of those, only about two dozen are registered to accept the approximately 9,000 Douglas County residents on Medicaid. But few of these dentists do.

Sticker Shock program aimed at liquor buyers Initiative tries to curb buying booze for minors By George Diepenbrock

Many packages of beer, wine coolers and other alcoholic drinks purchased in Lawrence this weekend will come with an extra warning label. “Think. If you buy them booze, you can lose,” the red stickers will alert anyone 21 or older about the legal consequences of providing alcohol to minors. “It’s a small step toward our main goal to prevent it completely,” said Tommy Kitchen, a Lawrence High senior and member of the Lawrence Youth Coalition, which will place the stickers on cases at several Lawrence-area liquor, grocery and convenience stores. It’s the second year in a row Lawrence High and Free State High School students will participate in the Sticker Shock event. The stickers remind adults they could face fines up to $1,000 and up to one year in jail for violating social

Earlier this week, Hansen told the JournalWorld the project would be changed to comply with a City Hall interpretation that the public slaughtering would violate the city’s animal cruelty code. Hansen also was notified of several regulations she would have to meet even if she wanted to keep chickens on a piece of private property as part of the exhibit. Hansen’s project, titled “The Story of Chickens: A Revolution,” has drawn concern from Lawrence’s Compassion for All Animals Group, and from a group called United Poultry Concerns. Hansen potentially could have faced a fine of up to $1,000 or six months in jail for violating the city’s animal cruelty ordiCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1A nance.

But Chahine said the city did not present evidence showing what type of ammunition the cat was shot with. “My client denied the whole time he ever even owned a weapon,” he said, adding that police never recovered a weapon. The defense presented evidence that Wilkins and his family have treated animals humanely, and Chahine said traps were set for stray cats in the area but that the family would either donate the animals to the humane society or free them at an area lake.

tornado is the weakest category of a tornado with winds between 65 mph and 85 mph. Darlene Schwarz, who drives a school bus for the Baldwin City school district, noticed damage on her route Wednesday that included a tree on the road in one area and damage to barns, other buildings, a roof on a home and a breezeway and garage on a new home under construction. “You could tell a tornado or something went through there,” Schwarz said. Douglas County Emergency Management Director Teri Smith said most of the damage was tippedover farm machinery and blown-off shingles. She said a mobile home in the area was destroyed, but officials have not confirmed if anyone was living in the home because no one was home when they checked on it.

Smith said the February storm was a good reminder about being prepared for severe weather — always. “Take the time now to have a plan, make a kit, and be informed and know what to do before, during and after,” Smith said. Gov. Sam Brownback on Thursday declared a disaster emergency in 19 counties, including Douglas, hit this week by the violent weather, including the storm that spawned a deadly tornado in the eastern Kansas town of Harveyville. The governor’s disaster declaration brings the state into the response to the storms. Brownback had already declared of a state of emergency Tuesday night in Wabaunsee County after the tornado hit Harveyville. But other areas also had damaging winds, hail and tornadoes.

The first year was successful in Lawrence, and other communities across the state are seeking to replicate the Sticker Shock event. “I had a lot of people who saw the stickers last year who commented on them,” said Jordan, director of prevention at DCCCA Inc. “I’d like to think that we made a difference.” Diane Ash, Lawrence High’s Youth Coalition coordinator, said four more stores are participating this year than did in 2011. Students contacted every business in town that serves beer or alcohol but not all wanted to participate, she said. Jordan said according to a 2010 Communities That Care survey, 44 percent of high school seniors in Lawrence reported drinking alcohol at least once the previous month and 30 percent of those acknowledged someone older than 21 provided the alcohol. — Reporter George Diepenbrock can be reached at 832-7144.

Concerns raised about dyslexia

Up in arms

BRIEFLY 2 area men die in murder-suicide Two men died Wednesday night west of Lansing after an apparent murder-suicide, Leavenworth County Undersheriff Ron Cranor said. Cranor said that about 8:30 p.m. 32-year-old Kenneth McClellan, of Leavenworth, forced his way into a home in the 25000 block of 164th Street. Once in the living room, McClellan shot one resident in the chest with a handgun. Cranor said 66-year-old John J. O’Brien died at the scene. Officers think the suspect, McClellan, was looking for O’Brien’s daughter, who also lived at the home. Cranor said investigators think the two had a relationship that has been estranged for some time. She had met him about four years ago. O’Brien’s wife, Benita, 57, fled the house without any physical injuries. The couple’s daughter, 39-year-old Stacy O’Brien, suffered a head injury when she was struck with the gun, Cranor said, but she then fled the house. She was treated and released from an area hospital. The suspect was found dead at the scene, the undersheriff said. “He had apparently shot himself outside the residence,” Cranor said.

Judge to allow text messages in trial GREAT BEND — Text messages between a 38-year-old Kansas man and a 14-year-old girl he’s accused of killing will be allowed as evidence in his murder trial later this month. Lawyers for Adam Longoria wanted to exclude dozens of text messages he exchanged with Alicia DeBolt after they met at a party in Great Bend. DeBolt’s burned body was found in August 2010 at a Barton County asphalt plant where Longoria worked. Longoria’s trial is scheduled for March 26.

million loan has created questions about the future of one of the city’s larger athletic clubs and exercise facilities. Meritrust Credit Union has filed a petition in Douglas County District Court seeking a legal ruling declaring the credit union now owns the real estate, equipment and all other business interests of the Lawrence Athletic Club, 3201 Mesa Way.

An attorney for Wichita-based Meritrust confirmed the credit union is seeking ownership of the club after longtime LAC owner Rick Sells and his corporation Junkyard’s Jym defaulted on a $2.4 million note. But the attorney said the club’s several hundred members should not worry the exercise facility is planning to close.

TOPEKA — Frustrated parents, reduced education budgets and legislators converged Thursday over the issue of trying to help students with dyslexia. Sen. Steve Abrams, RArkansas City, said he knew of instances where students were diagnosed with dyslexia, and then when the parents met with teachers and administrators they were told the student didn’t need additional help. “That is extremely frustrating for these parents. They feel like LEGISLATURE they are being ignored,” Abrams said. Dyslexia is a learning disorder that makes it difficult to read. Abrams has introduced Senate Bill 410, which would require schools to increase screening to identify students with dyslexia and provide instruction for those children.

State parks official defends plan to charge seniors for permits By Scott Rothschild

TOPEKA — Robin Jennison, Kansas Secretary of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism, is trying to find the right bait to get the Legislature to bite on a proposal to charge senior citizens for fishing and hunting permits. Kansans who are 65 and older are currently exempt from paying for hunting and fishing fees. The annual permits cost $20.50 each. At the start of the legislative session, Jennison, who is facing a funding crisis in maintaining state parks, initially proposed removing the fee exemptions for people 65 or older. That caused a public outcry. On Thursday, Jennison tried to soften the blow. He said the agency was now considering a proposal that would give seniors the option of paying for an annual half-price license or purchasing a senior pass, which could cost $50 and be good for


eration of the club. Bruce was guarded in his comments about the matter, but said to the best of his knowledge Sells was still involved in managing the club. As for the ownership issue, Bruce said the court filing was an attempt to ensure no other parties had a legitimate claim to the property or business. The legal filing indicated other parties may try to


have in place adequately do take care of our students,” Riley said. She said the system could always improve, however. “If there is a way to work with these parents, we have got to do that,” said Chairwoman Jean Schodorf, R-Wichita. Riley said requirements under the bill would increase the costs to school districts by millions of dollars statewide. Meanwhile, the Legislature and Gov. Sam Brownback have

the lifetime of the holder. “We are trying to be fair,” Jennison told the Senate Natural Resources Committee. Committee members voiced support for Jennison in trying to reach a compromise, but also noted the idea of charging LEGISLATURE seniors was politically difficult. “This bill has an uphill battle,” said Sen. Mark Taddiken, R-Clifton. Committee Chairman Ralph Ostmeyer, RGrinnell, said when he explains to constituents, who are angry about the proposal, that it is needed to maintain parks facilities, “I think it mellows them down. It doesn’t put the fire out.” Jennison said he doesn’t think it’s unfair to charge seniors. He noted that probably 90 percent of the people who fish at Lake Perry are seniors. Jennison said the agency is in a difficult posi-

tion because it doesn’t get state tax dollars and is in need of funds for major repairs and maintenance at several parks. When he tells people who call him about this issue, they understand, he said. “Anybody that loves the outdoors, when they understand the issue, they do not have a problem with this at all,” he said. The Kansas State Rifle Association, Silverhaired Legislature and the Kansas Areas on Aging Association oppose repealing the exemption for seniors regarding the payment of license fees for hunting and fishing. But Spencer Tomb, a retiree from Manhattan, spoke in favor of charging seniors. He said the license fees are only small parts of the overall costs of hunting and fishing. And, he said, with people living longer and being more active in retirement, the exemptions for seniors were costing the state a lot of money.

make a claim on the property, including the Lawrence real estate company The Caspian Group. The Caspian Group, which is led by longtime Lawrence landlord George Paley, won in August a nearly $400,000 judgment against Junkyard’s Jym in Douglas County District Court. That ruling stemmed from a lease dispute at 1202 E. 23rd Street, which housed Lawrence Athletic Club East before it shut down. Shortly after the August ruling, Sells filed for bankruptcy protection. At the

time, Sells told the Journal World he did not believe the ruling or his bankruptcy would impact his ability to keep the club open. Bruce indicated that Meritrust would begin seeking a new owner for the facility once it has clear title to the property and business. “If this goes as we want it to, we won’t own it and somebody else will,” Bruce said. “Meritrust is a credit union. It doesn’t want to own a gym.”

not provided any professional funding for training teachers about dyslexia. School disWagle tricts have had to dip into other areas to pay for the training, Riley said. Sen. Susan Wagle, RWichita, however, said there are a number of parents involved with their school district who aren’t getting the help they need for their children. Schodorf said the committee would decide next week on what to do with

Abrams’ bill. Linda Weinmaster, of Lawrence, talked with several committee members after the meeting, urging them to endorse intensive phonics instruction. Weinmaster said one of her children was wrongly thought by school officials to have a learning disability when he was young. “Nothing was wrong with him,” she said. “Like many other children, he was simply being disabled by ineffective reading curriculum and instructional methods.”


Petition calls for more school funding TOPEKA — Several organizations have joined forces in a petition drive that calls for increased school funding and opposition to Gov. Sam Brownback’s proposed school finance overhaul. “The governor’s proposal before the Legislature is inadequate and threatens the state’s long tradition of giving every child a high-quality public education,” the groups said. The American Federation of Teachers-Kansas, Kansas Families for Education, and Kansans United in Voice & Spirit are circulating a petition that tells Brownback and the Legislature to help public schools. The monthlong petition drive is being called Kansas Madness in March. The petition cane be signed at Brownback has proposed a school finance overhaul that would eliminate state limits on local property taxes for education and junk a system of extra funding to educate children with specific needs. Brownback has said his proposal will give locals more say in education funding. Critics say it will create wider disparities between rich and poor districts.

Dems seek to end corporate personhood TOPEKA — Democratic legislators on Thursday said they will introduce a resolution in the Legislature to urge Congress to pass a constitutional amendment aimed at abolishing “corporate personhood.” The proposal seeks to overturn a U.S. Supreme Court decision in Citizens United vs. Federal Election Commission that says corporations have the same freedom of speech rights as people. “Corporations don’t live and breathe or go to war or rebuild after tornadoes,” said Senate Democratic Leader Anthony Hensley of Topeka. “They are simply not people and do not deserve the same rights as people.” The resolution urges Congress to pass a constitutional amendment to abolish corporate personhood by establishing that the term “person” refers only to naturally born persons. Sixteen state legislatures have introduced similar measures. “Citizens United is wrong because it confuses people with corporations and speech with money,” said state Sen. Tom Holland of Baldwin City, who is the ranking Democrat on the Senate tax committee.

Are the city and Westar going to launch a program to replace streetlights with LED bulbs to save energy?


Chad Luce, Westar Energy’s manager for customer and community relations, provided this answer: Westar continues to examine and test alternatives, including LED, for streetlights the company leases to the city of Lawrence. In Lawrence, that includes more than 3,500 lights. While LEDs use less energy than the high-pressure sodium lights that are currently installed, it is tremendously costly to replace fixtures, ballasts and lamps. As LED costs continue to fall, they will be a viable consideration in the future.

LAW ENFORCEMENT REPORT A police report lists a second victim in an early Sunday morning fight at The Cave, 1200 Oread Ave., in which former Kansas University basketball player Marcus Morris and another man received battery citations. Kim Murphree, a Lawrence police spokeswoman, said the victim, a 24-year-old Lawrence man, reported being hit and knocked down during the altercation, injuring his hand. Earlier police said a male employee alleged he was punched by another man after a verbal dispute that turned physical. It was also alleged that another man punched the employee from behind. Morris, 22, and currently with the Houston Rockets, and Julius K. Harris, 23, of Philadelphia, received tickets for battery with notices to appear March 20 in Lawrence Municipal Court. • A 22-year-old Muscatine, Iowa, man reported to Lawrence police Saturday afternoon that he was robbed of his wallet early Saturday in the 900 block of Maine Street by a man who hit him and took his wallet. The victim reported to police he had minor abrasions and did not require medical attention, Murphree said. The man alleged that at 1 a.m. Saturday he was walk-

ing home from downtown with two female friends when they got into a car driven by two men who offered them a ride. The driver drove past their destination but stopped the car a block away when the victim and two women, who were not injured, jumped out of the car. The alleged robbery occurred then, and the two suspects eventually drove away to the west, Murphree said.

Lawrence police briefly chased a stolen vehicle near the 900 block of Iowa Street on Thursday afternoon. Three suspects were eventually arrested after they fled the scene of a single-car, noninjury accident on private property in the 1200 block of Iowa. Sgt.

A few minutes after the decision to stop the chase, a resident in the 1200 block of Iowa called police to report that a car had hit a tree on his property. After hitting the tree, the three occupants of the stolen car fled on foot. They were not injured in the crash.

GOP senators fail to reverse contraceptives rule By Laurie Kellman Associated Press

WASHINGTON — In an election year battle mixing birth control, religion and politics, Democrats narrowly blocked an effort by Senate Republicans to overturn President Barack Obama’s order that most employers or their insurers cover the cost of contraceptives. The 51-48 vote on Thursday killed a measure that would have allowed employers and insurers to opt out of portions of the president’s health care law they found morally objectionable. That would have included

2 U.S. troops killed by Afghan partners By Deb Riechmann Associated Press

KABUL, AFGHANISTAN — Two U.S. troops were gunned down by two Afghan soldiers and an accomplice Thursday, the latest of six American service members killed by their Afghan partners since the burning of Muslim holy books at a U.S. base last week sent antiAmericanism soaring in a nation that has long distrusted foreigners. The killings come at a time when international troops have stepped up training and mentoring of Afghan soldiers, police and government workers so the Afghans can take the lead and the foreign forces go home. Success of the partnership, the focus of the U.S.-led coalition’s exit strategy, is threatened by a rising number of Afghan police and soldiers — or militants disguised in their uniforms — who are turning their guns on their foreign allies. The latest victims were killed on a joint U.S.-Afghan base in Zhari district of southern Kandahar province by two Afghan soldiers and Afghan civilian literacy instructor who fired from a sentry tower, according to U.S. and Afghan officials. NATO forces shot and killed two of the assailants, apparently the soldiers, said Pentagon press secretary George Little. On Feb. 25, two U.S. military advisers were found dead with shots to the back of the head inside the Afghan Interior Ministry in Kabul. Two U.S. troops were killed Feb. 23 by an Afghan soldier during an anti-Western protest over the Quran burning. The U.S. apologized for the burning, saying the Islamic texts were mistakenly sent to a garbage burn pit Feb. 20 at Bagram Air Field, north of Kabul.

the law’s requirement to cover the costs of birth control. S e n . Olympia Snowe, who this week Obama dropped her re-election bid and cited frustration with the polarized Congress, cast the lone Republican vote to block the measure. Two Democrats up for re-election and one who is retiring voted against Obama’s requirement. Majority Democrats said the legislation would have allowed employers and insurers to avoid virtually

DENVER — Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper’s flattering comments about Lt. Gov. Joe Garcia turned into a bit of a flub. The governor mistakenly referred to Garcia as a “rising sex star” Wednesday. He made the remark while introducing him at a childhood literacy event attended by about 40 children at a Denver elementary school. Hickenlooper routinely introduces Garcia as a “rising star” and a “rock star” at public events. The Democrat immediately caught his slip, which was recorded by radio station KOA. The Denver Post reported the comments Thursday. According to the tape, Hickenlooper says, “Now I get to introduce that rising sex star — symbol. I mean, symbol — not star.”

ployers’ faith forbids its use. Roman Catholic leaders have strongly opposed the requirement. The Senate vote aside, the debate “won’t be over until the administration figures out how to accommodate people’s religious views as it relates to these mandates,” said the measure’s sponsor, Sen. Roy Blunt, R-Mo. “This is a debate that might be settled at that building across the street,” he said, referring to the Supreme Court. Such cultural issues have been prominent in this presidential election year, with Republican presidential candidates casting

Syrian rebels withdraw from enclave after siege By Elizabeth A. Kennedy and Zeina Karam Associated Press

BEIRUT — After a punishing, monthlong military siege, Syrian rebels made what they called a “tactical retreat” Thursday from a key district in Homs, saying they were running low on weapons and the humanitarian conditions were unbearable. Within hours of the rebels’ withdrawal, President Bashar Assad’s regime granted permission for the International Committee of the Red Cross to enter the neighborhood of Baba Amr, which had become a symbol of the resistance. Human rights workers have been appealing for access for weeks to deliver food, water and medicine, and to help evacuate the wounded from an area

that has been sealed off and attacked by the government since early February. The Red Cross and the Syrian Arab Red Crescent received a “green light” from the Syrian authorities to enter Baba Amr on Friday “to bring in muchneeded assistance including food and medical aid, and to carry out evacuation operations,” ICRC spokesman Hicham Hassan told The Associated Press in Geneva. Also Thursday, Syria’s main opposition group, the Syrian National Council, formed a military bureau to help organize the armed resistance and funnel weapons to rebels — a sign of how deeply militarized the conflict has become over the past year. The uprising began in March 2011 with mostly

peaceful protests, but a fierce government crackdown has led many army defectors and others to take up arms and fight back, with more than 7,500 estimated killed. The siege of Baba Amr has been among the deadliest assaults as Syrian forces bombarded the district with shells and snipers fired from rooftops. Late Thursday, a Syrian official said the army had entered and taken control of the area. The Local Coordination Committees said there were 45 deaths recorded in Syria Thursday, 24 of them in Homs. Hundreds of people were killed and an unknown number wounded in Baba Amr; bloodied victims were forced to seek help in makeshift clinics with dwindling supplies amid a frigid winter.

Obama’s health care law as government overreach into the most personal types of medical decisions. The contraception policy in particular touches on religious and women’s rights important to the activists at the core of each party. A majority of Americans support the use of contraceptives. The public is generally in favor of requiring birth control coverage for employees of religiously affiliated employers, according to a CBS News/New York Times poll Feb. 8-13. The survey found that 61 percent favor the mandate, while 31 percent oppose it. Catholics support the

requirement at about the same rate as all Americans. The legislative fight came after the controversy had already forced the White House to budge somewhat. The administration initially ruled that religious-affiliated institutions such as hospitals and universities must include free birth control coverage in their employee health plans. As protests mounted from Catholic leaders and many Republicans, Obama announced an adjustment: Religious employers could opt out, but insurance companies must then pay for the birth control coverage.

The cellphone company said Thursday that it will slow down service for “unlimited data” subscribers after they reach 3 gigabytes of usage within a billing cycle.

Jobs picture brightens; economy awaits liftoff By Christopher S. Rugaber and Paul Wiseman Associated Press

WASHINGTON — After years of bad news begetting more bad news, the American economy may finally be building momentum in the other direction. A flurry of economic reports issued Thursday captured some solid recent gains: Companies are hiring. Factories and department stores are busier. Americans are buying more cars. And the stock market just ended its best February in 14 years. But Thursday’s reports also showed that a healthier job market hasn’t translated into bigger paychecks for workers or a surge in consumer spending. And the progress of the past few months is now threatened by a rise in gasoline prices. On one hand, analysts say the economy may be on the verge of a “virtuous cycle,” in which stronger hiring fuels more consumer spending, which leads to even more hiring and spending. On the other hand, even months of improvement have yet to demonstrate that the cycle can sustain itself. “When you get this sort of hodgepodge and not-so-good results, you start to see the true nature of this recovery,” said Sean Snaith, director of the University of Central Florida’s Institute for Economic Competitiveness. A healthier job market

hasn’t produced bigger paychecks or a surge in consumer spending. The housing market is still weak. A European recession threatens to hold back U.S. growth. Thursday’s reports showed an economy maintaining its growth 2 1/2 years after the official end of the Great Recession: The number of people applying for first-time unemployment benefits fell last week to a four-year low. And automakers, such as Ford and Chrysler, and many retailers, including Target Corp. and Macy’s Inc., reported improved sales for February. At the same time, the government said consumer spending flat-lined in January after adjusting for inflation. Manufacturing activity grew at a slower pace in February as factories received fewer orders and had to pay more for raw materials. And construction spending slipped in January, the first monthly drop since July. Another worrisome sign is that gas prices are headed toward $4 a gallon. All that comes even as a strong report this week on consumer confidence helped lift the Dow Jones industrial average past 13,000 for the first time since May 2008. Unemployment has dropped for five straight months. And the economy has generated nearly 2 million jobs over the past year.

KBA credibility The Kansas Bioscience Authority shouldn’t be too quick to close the book on its former CEO.


t will be interesting to see how the Kansas Bioscience Authority’s board of directors decides to handle the Tom Thornton situation. Thornton was chief executive officer of the KBA until he abruptly resigned in April 2011. An audit of KBA operations released in January was critical of his leadership and cited problems with several expenditures and personal matters. Perhaps the most interesting revelation was that, shortly after his resignation, Thornton used computer cleanup and drive-wiping tools to permanently clear the hard drive on his KBA-owned computer. He has refused to say exactly what information was destroyed, but he told auditors it involved “personal financial and tax information, family photos and other information of a personal nature, some of which would be embarrassing if made public.” This raises the very real question of what Thornton was trying to hide from investigators/auditors and whether it included evidence that would be damaging or even self-incriminating. It seems rather obvious that Thornton destroyed the files to cover up information that would have been harmful. The Johnson County District Attorney’s Office is conducting its own investigation of the KBA. This being the case, what are KBA directors going to do about it? Are they going to look further into Thornton’s actions or are they going to try to cover up, protect themselves and refuse to pursue the matter? What does this say about the KBA board and the message its actions send to state lawmakers, the governor and the public? Any efforts to restore public confidence in the KBA and its leadership and downplay the fact that hardball politics have played a significant role in the authority’s activities in recent years will be severely handicapped by a less-thanforthcoming KBA board. If any laws have been violated, why remain silent and try to defend Thornton? A major effort now is under way to encourage individuals to consider joining the KBA board of directors, but many individuals are hesitant to accept a nomination because of the less-than-favorable actions and policies by KBA directors and Thornton in recent years.

Quiet Yemen transition offers lessons WASHINGTON — In the turbulent annals of the Arab Spring, last weekend’s ceremony in Yemen was so quiet it was barely noticed. But it marked the transfer of power from an aging autocrat who had ruled his country for 34 years to a new leader who’s saying the right things about reform. This was a stage-managed change of regime, and one that left some loose ends and unresolved questions. It was a product of backroom dealing and regional realpolitik. But in its very lack of visibility, the Yemen handover offered a counterpoint to the violent and still-uncertain transitions in Egypt, Libya and Syria. So how did the Yemen story unfold, and what are its lessons as the U.S. struggles to cope with the other Arab revolutions? Every story in the Arab Spring is different, and there isn’t a “Yemen model” that can easily be replicated, but there are some interesting approaches here, including:

 Working with regional proxies: The transition was brokered by the Gulf Cooperation Council. Yemen’s wealthy neighbors, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, massaged and bankrolled the process, which culminated in an agreement last November that President Ali Abdullah Saleh would go. The GCC has often been a feeble talk shop in the past, but under Bahraini Secretary-General Abdul Latif al-Zayani, the

The challenge in Yemen is getting closure on transition. As we’ve seen in Egypt, protest can become a way of life — to the point that it threatens the gains the opposition fought to achieve.” organization is finding its voice. The Arab League has undergone similar transformation, from dictators’ friend to change agent.

 Fighting terrorism without sending troops: Al-Qaida’s potent presence in Yemen made the country an urgent priority, and the U.S. several years ago began mobilizing resistance to al-Qaida forces in the south. The effort was coordinated by White House counterterrorism chief John Brennan, but it involved Centcom commanders, State Department diplomats and CIA officers. The U.S. often gives lip service to the “interagency process” while the military does the work, but in Yemen there actually was an aggressive joint strategy without “boots on the ground.”

Playing tribal politics: As with many Arab countries, Yemen’s state structure is loosely overlaid on powerful tribes. The U.S. has often botched this tribal factor, but it did better in Yemen — understanding Saleh’s tribal roots as well as those of dissident military officers. The big tribal confederations were convinced to align against al-Qaida. The Yemenis are now discussing a federal system that would ease the historical tensions between north and south.

 Finding the right front man: To succeed Saleh, the U.S. and its allies tapped the longtime vice president, Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi. An ex-military officer, he understood that the corrupt Yemeni system needed reform. Hadi was elected president last week in a oneman race that gave a veneer of democratic transition. He has promised to hold a referendum within 18 months on a new constitution.

 Reforming the military: In Yemen, as in so many other countries, the military is corrupted because soldiers are paid through their division commanders, who skim money and undermine morale. The U.S. is encouraging Hadi to pay troops directly. Reform is needed, too, in the two security services headed by Saleh’s son Ahmed and his nephew Yahya. Because the U.S. depends on these organizations against al-Qaida, it hopes to finesse change over the next several years. OK, but if it waits too long, it

will seem to be coddling the Saleh family.

 Reaching out to the opposition: The U.S. was caught flat-footed in Egypt and Libya because it lacked good contacts with the opposition. U.S. Ambassador Gerald Feierstein and his colleagues in Sanaa have done better, meeting regularly with civil society groups and dissidents. Protesters say they plan to remain camped in “Change Square,” even with Saleh gone, which will test the diplomats’ patience. The challenge in Yemen is getting closure on transition. As we’ve seen in Egypt, protest can become a way of life — to the point that it threatens the gains the opposition fought to achieve. The U.S. wants to play its hand slowly — gradually easing Saleh’s relatives from their leadership of the security forces, and moving to a more professional military. “This revolution has been stabbed in the back,” Khaled al-Anesi, one of the protest leaders, complained to The Washington Post’s Sudarsan Raghavan. Hopefully, Hadi will deliver enough on reform to ease this sense of betrayal. The very fact that Yemen is so poor and remote is an unlikely source of leverage for the U.S. and its allies. Curbing corruption and spreading the wealth in this faraway country is the best strategy for getting “buy-in” for the Arab Spring’s quiet revolution. — David Ignatius is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.



From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for March 2, 1912: YEARS “Bringing a mesAGO sage of progress IN 1912 from the medical profession, Mr. W. F. Kuhn of Kansas City spoke here last night before the College Y.M.C.A. He said in part: ‘The medical profession does not present such an attraction as some other professions. The ministry always has had its great leaders; the law has had its great leaders; but medicine has had to evolve out of the worst superstitions. Even in my own time, I can remember when two-thirds of medicine was superstition, and the other third was chamomile tea.” — Compiled by Sarah St. John

To the editor: Through the late 1950s, it was illegal in many states for whites and blacks to intermarry as it ran contrary to popular religious beliefs. In 1958, two residents of Virginia, a black woman and a white man, were married in the District of Columbia pursuant to its laws. Shortly after their marriage, the couple returned to Virginia where they lived as husband and wife. A Virginia grand jury issued an indictment charging them with violating Virginia’s ban on interracial marriages. The couple were sentenced to one year in jail. The sentencing judge declared: “Almighty God created the races white, black, yellow, malay and red, and he placed them on separate continents. And but for the interference with His arrangement, there would be no cause for such marriage. The fact that he separated the races shows that he did not intend for the races to mix.” The Virginia judge and our Kansas governor have much in common. They both believe that being required to treat their fellow citizens as equals infringes upon their religious liberties. Isn’t it possible to be religious and yet be accepting of basic human rights such as the right to work, the right to have a roof over your head and the right to marry the person of one’s choosing whether that person be gay, straight — black or white? Rick Frydman, Lawrence

Tibet support

heard a vivid report on the Chinese government’s brutal repression of Tibetan religious activity. NPR’s China correspondent told of monks living in fear of being shot in their monasteries. She described monks sacrificing their lives in acts of self-immolation in a desperate effort to cast light on the Chinese government’s cruelty. Perhaps even more disturbing was her comment that the Chinese government is preparing to increase its repression and bring even more pain and suffering to those whose only desire is to preserve their traditional religion and culture. Living far from Tibet, how is it possible for a resident of Lawrence to express solidarity with the Tibetan people in their struggle against the Chinese government? One way is to contribute to the International Campaign for Tibet. Another way is to ask the University of Kansas administration to tell the Chinese government that unless it stops its brutal treatment of the Tibetan people KU will stop providing the Chinese government with money to operate its Confucius Institute on the Edwards Campus. If every university in America that has become a “propaganda partner” with the Chinese government by participating in the Chinese Communist Party’s Confucius Institute program would do this, it would put China’s authoritarian rulers on notice that the Tibetan people do not stand alone. Gary J. Bjorge, Lawrence


To the editor: As a parent and former teacher, I would like to commend Dr. Wes Crenshaw and Miranda Davis for the column To the editor: Last week (Feb. 21) those listening to Double Take, printed in the Journal“Morning Edition” on KANU or KCUR World GO section on Mondays. They

respond to issues that can be very painful to individuals and families by writing with concern, open-mindedness, tact and compassion. Their advice is neither condemning nor sugar-coated and faces directly the fragile nature of personal interaction. Their columns and the news and feature reporting by the Journal-World staff is a positive counterbalance to the unbalanced, extremist, ethnocentric, homophobic screeching by some of the nationally syndicated columnists who appear on the editorial page. Werner Anderson, Lawrence

Conservation? To the editor: I find it hard to square Roger Boyd’s view of conservation with his support for KDOT’s plan to build the Lawrence Trafficway through the pristine Baker Wetlands (“Wetlands manager honored by Kansas Wildlife Federation,” Journal-World, Feb. 26). Is this a variation on that chilling phrase from the Vietnam War, destroying the wetlands in order to conserve them? Brian Daldorph, Lawrence

Ex-scrub Teahan showing his skills


Wilt’s wonder

By Gary Bedore

Conner Teahan — who worked so hard for four years for the opportunity to play meaningful minutes on Kansas University’s ball team — actually panicked a bit during the 2011-12 exhibition season when his dream became a reality. “I was stressed out,” the former preferred walk-on out of Kansas City Rockhurst High said of learning he’d finally earned a slot in Bill Self’s regular rotation. “I am cool with sitting the bench and winning. If I’m out there on the court, though, I want to help the team win. I didn’t want to be playing a lot and us losing.

Love leads Honda Clasic PALM BEACH GARDENS, FLA. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Davis Love III looked more like a player than a Ryder Cup captain Thursday at the Honda Classic. Love made a hole-in-one on the 197-yard fifth hole and tied the course record at PGA National with a 6-under 64, giving him a two-shot lead. He took advantage of soft and relatively calm conditions in the morning. Rory McIlroy was in the group at 66, needing a win this week to go to No. 1 in the world. Tiger Woods needs a good round just to have a chance going into the weekend. Playing the Honda Classic for the first time as a pro, Woods twice lost momentum with sloppy bogeys and failed to convert a routine up-and-down on the par-5 18th for a 1-over 71.

Negotiators: No deadline set for expanded baseball playoffs the sides reached a consensus that ties for division titles would be broken on the field with a tiebreaker game under the new playoff format, and not by head-to-head record. Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig said Jan. 27 the expansion for this season was on track. Eight of 30 baseball teams have made the playoffs under the format that began in 1995, a year later than intended because of a strike that wiped out the postseason in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;94. The postseason included just the league winners from 1903-68, then increased to four teams in 1969. In the NFL, 12 of 32 teams make the playoffs. In both the NBA and NHL, 16 of 30 teams advance to the postseason.

NEW YORK â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Negotiators for baseball players and owners say there is no set deadline for an agreement to expand the playoffs to 10 teams this season. The sides have said for weeks a deal is likely. When players and owners signed their agreement for a new labor contract in November, the section covering the postseason established a March 1 goal for deciding whether the playoffs would increase by two teams for 2012 or 2013. But in recent days both sides said negotiations would continue beyond Thursday if they needed time. The sides spoke on condition of anonymity to The Associated Press because the talks have not been public. The deal would establish a new onegame, wild-card round in each league between the teams with the best records who are not division winners, meaning a thirdplace team could win the World Series. Creating it for 2012 has been complicated because the regular-season schedule was drafted last spring and summer, and the extra game has to be put in place in a manner that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t disrupt the World Series schedule. Further complicating scheduling,

Firebirds girls ready for O-South rematch By Benton Smith

It’s been exactly three weeks since Free State High’s girls basketball team suffered its most painful loss of the season. The Firebirds were up one point at Olathe South when the Falcons’ Megan Balcom drilled a coldblooded three-pointer at the buzzer, giving OSouth a 52-50 victory. Said Free State senior guard Lynn Robinson: “We talk about it all the time. That three-point shot that they made against us just made us so bitter. We just can’t believe it went in.” The dagger had the FSHS girls in tears in the

Anytime you play somebody and lose at the buzzer, you’d love to get the opportunity to play them again.” — Free State girls basketball coach Bryan Duncan locker room after the loss, and it was in that emotional moment that they started looking forward to a possible rematch. They’ve got it at 5:30 p.m. tonight at Leavenworth High, with a substate championship on the line. The first match-up between Free State (16-5,

ranked No. 6 in Class 6A) and O-South (19-2, No. 5 in 6A) went so well for the Firebirds, senior guard Jackie Garcia said, that they’re hoping for a repeat performance, just with a better outcome. The sentiment in the locker room after that loss, remains the same now — “We’d rather lose that one and win this next one,” Garcia said. Free State coach Bryan Duncan said the entire team responded in like fashion to the loss at OSouth. “Anytime you play somebody and lose at the buzzer, you’d love to get the opportunity to play them again,” Duncan said.

The anticipation of the rematch, coupled with what’s at stake, junior guard Kennedy Kirkpatrick said, should make for a memorable showdown. “It was definitely a good game the last time we played them, and I think everyone is really fired up to play them again, so it’ll be fun,” Kirkpatrick said. When the Firebirds recall the first meeting, Robinson said the thing that annoys them most is the way the third quarter turned out. Free State led 31-21 at the half before the Falcons went on a 22-7 run in the third. “We just have to make sure we play four very intense quarters against

Turnovers, poor shooting doom Free State boys vs. Leavenworth By Benton Smith

LEAVENWORTH — A chance at redemption sat squarely in front of the Free State High boys basketball team Thursday night. The struggles and losses of the past three months wouldn’t seem so bad if the Firebirds could pull off some postseason magic. For a half, underdog FSHS played to its potential and had Leavenworth in a precarious spot. But the Pioneers showed why they were the No. 2 seed in this Class 6A sub-state tournament and put an end to No. 7 seed Free State’s season with a 65-47 home win. It was obvious to all involved that the third quarter was the point when the Firebirds’ chances of pulling off the upset were dashed. FSHS coach Chuck Law said it was kind of cliche, but the first four minutes of the second half can decide a basketball game. Law’s Firebirds (7-14) felt pretty good about where they stood at halftime, trailing just 2724. However, less than two minutes into the third quarter, Leavenworth (16-5, No. 7 in 6A) had scored seven unanswered points — courtesy of Grant Greenberg, Jeff George and Jerricus Funderburke — to take a 10-point lead. Though FSHS senior Tyler Self put a stop to the bleeding by nailing his third three-pointer of the game, George answered with his third three-pointer, setting the table for what would be a steady barrage of backbreaking plays by the Pioneers. “They’ve got another gear,” Law said of LHS. “They came out and hit some big shots to start the second half and we didn’t.” Leavenworth put the game out of reach with a series of mini-runs in the second half. LHS went on a 10-4 spurt late in the third and took a 46-33 lead into the fourth quarter. An 11-1 run in the fourth sealed Free State’s fate. “We don’t have the offensive fire-power to combat that,” Law said.

Turnovers: FSHS 15, LHS 10.

Following a six-point third quarter for Greenberg, an LHS senior guard, he scored 11 in the fourth to finish with a game-high 26. The closest FSHS could get in the final eight minutes was eight points, thanks to a quick start in the fourth, with a jumper by Brett Frantz and two buckets in the paint for Gabe Patterson. However, Greenberg soon after went on a personal 7-0 run. With just less than a minute remaining in their prep careers, a despondent group of Free State seniors — Self, Frantz, Patterson, Cameron Dabney and Shawn Knighton — left the floor. Frantz, who finished with nine points, said the Firebirds needed to answer LHS basket-for-basket in the second half and they failed to do so. “It’s hard not to look up and see the score and see it (the deficit) keep on getting bigger,” Frantz said. Leavenworth did most of its damage in the third quarter, when FSHS had five of its 15 turnovers and shot 3-for-10 from the field. In the meantime, the Pioneers went 8-for-12 with three turnovers. Self, who scored 11 points and passed out three assists, said Free State’s miscues were the difference. “We did some careless things with the ball, which didn’t help, and they got some easy buckets in transition,” Self said. “We just couldn’t get it back after that.” Law agreed: “Turnovers were big. We were careless in some critical junctures of the game. And those are kind of deflating. Some of our turnovers to-

LEAVENWORTH — Minutes before his alma mater, Leavenworth High, played its Class 6A sub-state opener Thursday night against Free State, Leavenworth and Kansas University basketball product Wayne Simien was inducted into the 2012 Kansas State High School Activities Association Hall of Fame. A 2001 LHS graduate who went on to earn numerous honors at KU and had a cup of coffee in the NBA with the Miami Heat, Simien received a plaque recognizing the honor at midcourt before the Pioneers went on to beat FSHS, 65-47. In addition to leading the Pioneers to a 6A championship his junior year, Simien night, they weren’t aggressive.” Patterson had teamhighs of 18 points and eight rebounds. He said Free State hoped to salvage a rough season with a sub-state victory. “It’s really hard to deal with… We just fell apart in the second half and lost the game that way,” the senior forward said. Though Leavenworth got out to a 9-2 lead in the first quarter, Free State stormed back behind baskets from Frantz, Patter-

During his high school career, he averaged 20 points, 10 rebounds, four blocked shots and shot 87 percent at the free-throw line. In his four-year career at KU, Simien was an All-American and Wooden Award finalist his junior and senior years and named Big 12 Player of the Year his senior season. He left Kansas as the 12th leading all-time scorer in program history with 1,593 points. son, Dabney and Self, and trailed 12-10 entering the second quarter. FSHS stayed within striking distance in the second, when its five senior starters accounted for all six of the team’s baskets. As often was the case for the Firebirds this season, they were left with some what-ifs following the 18-point defeat. Said Law: “We played like it was a good matchup for us for about 16 minutes.”

them and make sure we want that game,” the senior guard said, “because we want to go to state.” There is no questioning how much Robinson, Garcia, Kirkpatrick, Abbey and Chelsea Casady, A’Liyah Rogers and Scout Wiebe have been looking forward to this chance. However, Duncan knows that alone won’t win the game. “Certainly, we’d like to get a shot at them,” Duncan said, “but also we understand that we have to go do it. It’s easy to talk about.” In the O-South win, Alex Hugo led the team with 12 points. Kylie Kopatich had 11 and Bailey Rinehart had 10.

Duncan said things could turn out better for Free State this time if they do a couple of things well. “We’ve got to do a good job in transition defense on their run-outs,” Duncan said, “and we’ve got to do a good job on our shot selection.” FSHS went 19-for-49 (39 percent) from the floor in the loss and 5-for-17 (29 percent) from three. Robinson said the Firebirds can’t let O-South make a big scoring run tonight. “This time,” she said, “we’re gonna extend the lead and we’re gonna win that game.” Free State last went to state in 2010.


That shot bounced off the backboard, and East’s Caelan Neal grabbed the defensive rebound before getting fouled with two seconds left. “I felt like we were where we needed to be,” Henrichs said. “We just didn’t hit the shot.” Neal hit the front end of a one-and-one to end any hopes of an LHS comeback. The Lions actually led by as many as 10 points in the first half thanks to hot shooting. LHS took a 23-16 advantage into halftime despite not making a two-point field goal. Instead, LHS was 7-for-9 from threepoint range, while Anthony Buffalomeat added the other two points on a pair of free throws. “I thought we moved the ball well,” Lewis said. “I thought everybody who stepped on the floor did a great job of filling their role.” Smith kept East in it during the second quarter — scoring all nine of his team’s points — then continued his accuracy in the third quarter. During one stretch, he scored 10 straight points to the Lions’ five and cut LHS’s lead to 32-31. Smith’s final three gave East a 47-44 lead with 2:35 left. The Hawks (13-8) never trailed again. Though Lewis instructed his players to “lean” toward Smith in their 2-3 zone, that didn’t stop the junior from shooting it a few steps beyond the three-point line. Lewis said Smith’s performance had a “Marcus Denmon feel,” referring to the Missouri guard who made six of nine threes — many of them from deep — against Kansas in the Tigers’ 74-71 victory on Feb. 4 in Columbia, Mo.

“I’m telling you, he hit some shots that we were contesting, and we were out there,” Lewis said. “You’ve just got to hand it to him for hitting some shots.” Henrichs led LHS with 19 points on 5-for-5 shooting. That included perfect 4-for-4 accuracy from three-point range. Mosiman contributed 11 points, while Pritchard —who returned to action despite being bothered by a right-ankle injury — added eight. It was the final game for seniors Henrichs, Pritchard, Buffalomeat and Troy Willoughby. “I just can’t say enough good things about our guys,” Lewis said. “There’s a lot of sad guys in there right now, and that just tells you that they really care about it.”

Seabury boys rout St. Paul, 70-45 J-W Staff Reports

ST. PAUL — Sophomore Khadre Lane exploded for 35 points and Seabury Academy’s boy’s basketball team got one step closer to the Class 1A-Division I state tournament Thursday night with a 7045 sub-state victory over tournament host St. Paul. Despite the lopsided final, Seahawks coach Ashley Battles said his team came out lethargic in the first half. Seabury (11-10) only held a 26-17 halftime advantage before it got rolling in the second half. “We finally stepped out,” Battles said of the third quarter, “and we were who we are.” As the Seahawks expected, with their height, St. Paul played zone defense. It just took some time for Seabury to adjust after Thomas Diaz got in foul trouble in the first half. Plus, the team was without Jesse May, who

broke his nose and suffered a concussion Feb. 21. “We just kind of calmed down,” Battles said of the second half, “and became more patient and just played as a team instead of going out and just trying to score on our own.” Lane’s “smart, aggressive” approach, the coach said, led to his big night, while senior forward Georgi Funtarov scored 17 points. The win advanced Seabury on to a 7:30 p.m. Saturday sub-state final against Waverly (17-3) at St. Paul. Battles said the Seahawks won’t be able to come out sluggish again, with a spot at state on the line. “We just have to be focused and ready to go from the tip,” Battles said.

Self: Report of feud with Drew ‘inaccurate’ By Gary Bedore

The current edition of Sports Illustrated — which features a story on Baylor’s wildly successful athletic department — maintains Kansas University coach Bill Self has a problem with Bears’ coach Scott Drew. The magazine says: “It’s no coincidence that Self’s loathing of Drew and Texas coach Rick Barnes’ jibes at him (Drew) increased with Baylor’s wins.” Self’s response to the Journal-World: “I don’t read all the articles, but my wife showed me this one — something that was written that was inaccurate. I’ve never spoken to the writer, but obviously he got his information somewhere else that I think was definitely not accurate of the feelings of any coach in our league.” O Quite the quip: KU senior guard Tyshawn Taylor had perhaps the quote of the season on Thursday. Asked if he was nervous about his Senior Day speech to follow Saturday’s 8 p.m. game against Texas, he joked: “Yes. I wish I could just tweet it.”

If Tyshawn Taylor is not one of the best 15 players in the country, that’s unbelievable to me,” Self said.

Taylor said: “It’s kind of wack, but it is what it is. My numbers don’t really lie, so I guess they could look at that. It’s cool, though.

Wilt “Because he was black,” Ruklick echoed. “It was terrible the way black players were treated in the NBA then. It started getting better by 1963, 1964.” The thick-skinned Chamberlain, Ruklick said, handled the slights well. The two men first met on the Kansas University campus, when the opposing centers were brought together for a photograph the day before Wilt’s varsity debut as a sophomore against Northwestern in Allen Fieldhouse. “I looked at him and I said, ‘Wilt, I want to apologize to you,’ ” Ruklick remembered. “The reason I said that to him was because in the summer of 1955, at the old North-South high school basketball game in Murray, Ky., I was picked as prep All-American center and Wilt wasn’t there. He wasn’t invited. No black guys. I told him, ‘I stood there with four other guys and stood in your place, Wilt.’” Chamberlain’s response — “Don’t even think about it, man. You earned it.” — made a first impression on Ruklick that he never second-guessed. “From that point on, I realized Wilt Chamberlain was made of great stuff,” Ruklick said. “He was strong in many ways.” The day after that meeting, Chamberlain made his debut in a way that to this day echoes in Allen Fieldhouse. “What he did to me in Lawrence, I still need psychiatric help with it,”

“Willie says, ‘Hey Ruklick, I heard what you said. You’ll never play in another game.

But for about five seconds I thought he was serious, and I almost flooded my jock.” Ruklick proceeded to miss the free throw on purpose, but one of the Knicks, not Chamberlain got the rebound, which for the sake of symmetry, was a fortunate thing.

“That was easy for him: Do you want to play or not play?” KU coach Bill Self said of the red-shirt decision. “I told him, ‘If you are going to be in our top rotation then you should play.’ When you look at some of the cats that we had I don’t think that was a hard decision at all.” Self has been thrilled with the progress of Teahan — somebody he placed on scholarship two years ago, helping Conner shed the walk-on label once and for all. “He has been great for us. He is a threat and you have to guard him,” Self said of the sharpshooter who is 6-for-6 from three in two games versus Missouri this season.

“I had a recruit tell me the other day when we played Missouri, he said ‘Coach, go back and look at the tape, and every time that Thomas Robinson got good touches on a certain block, Teahan was always on his side.’ It is pretty smart for a recruit to figure that out because they (defenders) can’t help off of it. So when you look at value, the value isn’t just Conner making shots, it’s the value of him being on the court. I think he carries great value.” Teahan’s teammates knew that, if given an opportunity, he could help the Jayhawks win games. “We knew for a couple years of his ability to stretch the floor and

support of team manager Taeler Nieder and her family. Her brother, Jerod, suffered a severe neck injury on a family trip to Mexico in December. He’s currently being treated at a hospital in Colorado... An article on the injury from December is available at http://www2. dec/31/mexico-familyfaces-nightmare-aftersons-injury/ ... It seems Self’s mom and dad were flooded with phone calls from Missouri’s Antlers after the phone number of Self’s parents was shown on a sign during ESPN’s College GameDay on Feb. 4 and appeared on the Internet. The Antlers have been notorious for obtaining phone numbers of KU players and coaches throughout the years. “The number they got was right,” Self said with a smile. ... Self said Thomas Robinson and Jeff Withey would join seniors Tyshawn Taylor, Jordan Juenemann and Conner Teahan in the Senior Day starting lineup against Texas. Self said the four-minute time limit on speeches would remain in place this year. Mario Little, one might recall, went over by seven

knock down shots. At 6-6, he has a body that can bang and rebound,” said senior guard Tyshawn Taylor. “He had to wait patiently for his time, and he’s taken full advantage of it.” Teahan — his older brother Kyle played football at Missouri State; younger brothers Chris (12) and Marcus (11) compete in a variety of sports including football and basketball — says his own sports career ends following this season. Armed with two degrees — in finance and accounting — he’s going job hunting. “I like finance better than accounting. It’s not as structured as account-

ing,” Teahan said. “I’ve wanted to work with people’s finances, help them get their situations in order and what they need to invest in. At the same time, I stress myself out enough. I think worrying about other people’s money would make me get a whole head of gray hairs,” he added with a smile. The worrying apparently is a waste of time, like the worrying about how much he’d contribute as a rotation player. “Great kid,” Self said, adding, “Conner will do well in life. I personally think any business, any company would make a smart move in hiring him.”

The dinner, for which Knight will serve as guest of honor, will be from 6-9 tonight at Lawrence Country Club.

Dear Annie: Our son’s first marriage ended in divorce 10 years ago. From that union, we have a wonderful 13-year-old grandson. Our ex-daughter-inlaw, “June,” remarried quickly, and that marriage failed about 18 months ago. Apparently, she used our names as a credit reference, because we’ve been getting calls from several collection agencies asking for June by her most recent married name. After the first call, I told the agency I would not give out her phone number but would have June call them. I sent her a letter with the pertinent information. She phoned and said I should tell these callers I don’t know her. Lately, I’ve responded to these agencies by saying June hasn’t been in the family for 10 years and I don’t know how to reach her. Lying isn’t my normal operating proce-

dure, but in this instance, it seems the safest. I don’t know what type of retribution there would be for our son, our grandson or us if June thought we turned her in. The calls are getting more frequent, and we’re tired of them. What do you suggest? — Ex-In-Laws Dear In-Laws: There are laws in place to prevent harassment of third parties by collection agencies. Keep in mind, however, that if the collection agencies have reason to believe you are lying to them about June’s location,

Reba, Woz add to TV appearances A star of television, stage and country music who has sold more than 57 million albums, Reba McEntire goes looking for her roots on “Who Do You Think You Are?” (7 p.m., NBC) A musical prodigy from Oklahoma, McEntire discovers that her ancestors were quite prominent citizens in North Carolina and that more distant relations were involved in some of the darker chapters of American history. She also learns to appreciate the sacrifices her people made to come to this country and begin their lives anew. Reba’s series “Reba” ran for six seasons on the WB network and she was nominated for a Golden Globe. “Reba” was one of that now-defunct network’s most popular shows among viewers 18-49. McEntire has announced that she’s going to be working on a pilot for ABC called “Malibu Country.” Like “Reba,” it’s about a divorced mother. But this time she’s a music star trying to reboot her career.

 How do you go from changing the world to reality television? Back in the 1970s, Steve Wozniak founded Apple Computer along with Steve Jobs and Ronald Wayne. The rest, as they say, is history. Wozniak has blazed an eccentric trail since creating the Apple I and Apple II computers. He’s appeared on “Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List” and even dated its star for a while. He hoofed it on “Dancing With the Stars” and played himself on an episode of “The Big Bang Theory.” (Leonard considers him a cult hero for his work at Apple, while Penny knows him as a contestant on “Dancing With the Stars.”) Tonight, Wozniak adds to his small-screen credits with a stint on “Shark Tank” (7 p.m., ABC) as a consultant to an entrepreneur who needs an edge while negotiating with potential investors.

Tonight’s other highlights

 The head of a fast-food chicken chain gets lessons in worker motivation on “Undercover Boss” (7 p.m., CBS).

 Less than lucky loot on “Grimm” (8 p.m., NBC)

 A reporter and close friend of Frank’s is threatened with violence on “Blue Bloods” (9 p.m., CBS).

 Accidents on land and sea loom large on “Bering Sea Gold” (9 p.m., Discovery).

An anti-Olympics movement gains traction on “Portlandia” (9 p.m., IFC).

you might not have much recourse in getting them to stop. But please report any problems you have with a debt collector to your state attorney general’s office and the Federal Trade Commission (www.ftc. gov). Dear Annie: My husband recently retired, but I still work full time. My problem? My husband does not feel he should have to help with the household chores. He absolutely refuses. I have asked him numerous times to please put dinner on, but it falls on deaf ears. I might add that he’s an excellent cook when he is so inclined. A number of his friends are also retired, and they joke among themselves about how domesticated they have become around the house, but my husband just won’t budge. I even mow the lawn and shovel the snow. I may as well be living on my own. I’m not getting any younger and am


For Friday, March 2: This year creativity surges. You also will have a tendency to romanticize. Test reality by brainstorming. Confusion could surround communication. You pull the wild card financially. If you are single, be aware of how much you are projecting your dreams and desires onto a new person. If you are attached, the two of you are likely to go on a second honeymoon. 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)  You are more on top of your work than you realize. The immense amount of work you have already cleared out allows you to head home early. Tonight: Be spontaneous. Invite everyone over to your house. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Sometimes you underestimate how much you have to offer. Though a misunderstanding could arise from out of nowhere, stop and be aware of how much you care about people. Tonight: Say “yes” to the right invitation. Gemini (May 21-June 20)  You could feel as if you are out of control in the morning. Someone you counted on could disappoint you and create a lastminute flurry. Tonight: Join friends. Cancer (June 21-July 22)  The unexpected occurs with a parent or higher-up. Know that you can handle it, no matter what occurs. Tonight: Expect to be popular. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)  Play it low-key. Some of you might decide to cancel appointments or call it an early weekend. Tonight: Put out your unavailable sign. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

 Consider alternatives in a meeting to resolve a problem concerning an associate. In fact, the issue could evolve in a meeting. Allow more brainstorming. Tonight: Where people are. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  You could be off and tense about an appearance in the near future. Relax and work with the unpredictable. Tonight: Could go to the wee hours. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  You might want to try another approach. Finish up some research, and realize when you cannot go any further. Opt for a new path. Tonight: Distance yourself from the day. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)  You might want to switch gears, partially because it is Friday, but also because a partner needs your time. A very fun but shocking happening occurs. Tonight: Dinner for two. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)  What you thought you would do yesterday is far different from what you will choose today. You could witness some acting out. Tonight: Defer to a partner or loved one. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  You could be left holding the bag when dealing with others. Focus on getting what you need to get done. Tonight: Off to the gym, then home. Clear your mind. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)  Others admire your intrinsically caring manner and enormous creativity. How you see a situation could change radically because of a sudden financial change. Tonight: Be with your favorite person. — The astrological forecast should be read for entertainment only.

simply too tired to keep up with everything. All I ask is that he take over a couple of chores so I can have a little downtime on the weekends. Is this too much to ask? Don’t suggest a housekeeper. He would never allow it. Nor would he ever go for counseling. — Tired and Worn Out in Canada Dear Tired: Might your husband be depressed since retiring? It is not uncommon and could explain his lethargy and intransigence. If you are earning enough to hire housekeeping help, we recommend you do so whether he approves or not. You also could minimize your efforts around the house so that you handle your own laundry and meals and leave him to cook ACROSS and clean for himself. — Send questions to, or Annie’s Mailbox, P.O.

LEXINGTON, KY. — Darius Miller hit five threepointers and finished with 17 points, and No. 1 Kentucky beat Georgia on Thursday night to extend the nation’s longest home winning streak to 52 games and push its overall run to 21 in a row. Kentucky (29-1, 15-0 Southeastern Conference) made an emphatic statement in its final game at Rupp Arena this season with an offensive flurry that nearly equaled the stiff defensive effort the Wildcats have given all season. Kentucky, the nation’s best defensive team by field goal percentage, made a season-best 15 three-pointers, hitting six in a row in the second half. Donte’ Williams led Georgia (13-16, 4-11) with 17 points. The Bulldogs were 3 of 19 from threepoint range. Kentucky coach John Calipari hasn’t lost at Rupp Arena in his three seasons in Lexington, and the Wildcats are poised to make a run at their eighth national title thanks to player of the year contender Anthony Davis and a supporting cast of NBA-worthy talent. It was the final appearance for Miller and fellow senior Eloy Vargas, but also could be the last time that Davis, fellow freshmen Michael KiddGilchrist and Marquis Teague as well as sophomores Doron Lamb and Terrence Jones play at home. They made sure to make it memorable. Davis finished with nine points, eight rebounds and two blocks to give him an NCAA-best 140 this season, Lamb had 13 points and KiddGilchrist added 12 as the Wildcats went 15 of 27 from beyond the arc. Kentucky doubled up Georgia 42-21 just over a minute into the second half on Jones’ layup. GEORGIA (13-16) Thornton 1-5 2-2 4, D.

No. 13 Michigan 72, Illinois 61 CHAMPAIGN, ILL. — Tim Hardaway Jr. had 25 points and 11 rebounds to help keep Michigan in the Big Ten title race. Trey Burke added 21 points for Michigan (22-8, 12-5), which led throughout in its first victory in Illinois’ home court since 1995. Illinois (17-13, 6-11) closed to within 40-39 with just over 15 minutes left. But the Illini missed three chances to tie the game or take a lead. The Wolverines stretched the lead to 5344 with 7:49 to play and Illinois was never close again. Coming off a 75-61 loss at home to Purdue, Michigan came into the game still playing for that title shot.

No. 22 Florida State 63, No. 24 Virginia 60 CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA. — Iam Miller made a threepointer in the final second, and Florida State rallied from 11 points down in last 4 1/2 minutes to stun Virginia, spoiling a stellar Senior Night for the Cavaliers’ Mike Scott. Miller scored 15 of his 18 points in the second half, and got just free enough from Sammy Zeglinski in the final seconds to make the shot from deep in the right wing. It was Miller’s fifth three-pointer and the seventh for the Seminoles (20-9, 11-4 Atlantic Coast Conference). Michael Snaer and Xavier Gibson added 12 points each for the Seminoles.
