Bipartisan school finance plan emerges; Brownback critical By Scott Rothschild srothschild@ljworld.com

TOPEKA — A bipartisan plan to increase funding to schools by $100 million over the next two years emerged Friday in the Senate and immediately came under fire from Gov. Sam Brownback. The proposal has been crafted by the leaders of the Senate Education

Committee — Chairwoman Jean Schodorf, RWichita, Vice Chair John Vratil, R-Leawood, and ranking Democratic Anthony Hensley of Topeka — and stands in stark contrast to Brownback’s push to overhaul the school finance formula. Schodorf said, “School finance is not just about a formula; it’s also about funding. Our plan not

only makes a downpayment on restoring funding to our classrooms, but is also a Hensley wise investment in the future.” A hearing on the proposal, Senate Bill 450, will be at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday

before the Senate Education Committee. After several years of cutting base state aid per pupil to its lowest level in a decade, the measure would increase base state aid by $50 million for each of the next two years. That would result in increasing base state aid per student from $3,780 to $3,854 in the 2012-13 school year, and then to $3,928 in

the 2013-14 school year, for a total increase of $148 for base state aid per pupil. The Lawrence school district would receive nearly $2.1 million in additional funds under the proposal. Funding for the measure would come from the state’s projected ending balance for the next fiscal year, which is currently expected to be about $390 million.

The proposal would also allow school districts to increase the local portion of their budgets supported by local property taxes from 31 percent of base state aid to 33 percent next year and then 35 percent the year after that. These increases would be subject to protest petitions and a public vote. Please see BIPARTISAN, page 2A

Brownback, a Republican, has proposed revamping the school finance formula to eliminate state limits on local property taxes for education. His plan also includes no increase for the next school year and would junk the current system of providing additional funding, or weights, for specific educational circumstances, such as teaching children who have not yet learned English. “Our state’s current funding formula is broken,” said Brownback’s spokeswoman Sherriene Jones-Sontag. “More money without reform is not the solution,” she said. But key legislators have said Brownback’s plan should be held over for a year to provide time for additional study. In addition to pumping in more dollars, SB 450 would con-

number of livestock in the region. DHS selected the Kansas site for a $650 million new facility to replace an aging lab at Plum Island, N.Y. The lab is scheduled to be completed by 2018. The report comes a few weeks after President Barack Obama’s 2013 budget was released without mention of funding to begin construction this year. The budget recommendation requires DHS to reassess the project, its scope and alternatives. However, Gov. Sam Brownback says he was told by DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano that the decision had nothing to do with the lab itself but money. “Hopefully, we can get away from political arguments which have been driving things recently and get back fact-based reasoning,” Trewyn said. “The risk for the country is not building NBAF. Foreign animal diseases are going to get here and the country isn’t prepared.

tinue the current system of weighted funding. Vratil said adequately funding schools was vital to the state. “Ultimately, this is about economic growth, jobs and local control,” he said. Hensley said schools have endured seven rounds of cuts in three years. “As a result, local school boards have been forced to increase fees, increase class sizes and increase local property taxes just to make ends meet. It’s time we begin restoring the cuts to public schools immediately,” he said. Hensley predicted that the proposal would have a good chance of passing in the Senate, but its chances seemed iffy at best in the House. House Speaker Mike O’Neal, R-Hutchinson, said he didn’t like the new proposal. He said last year the Legislature gave school districts the flexibility to spend money from various fund balances, and

little of that money was spent. He said that means the need for additional ljworld.com funding is not there. “We’re throwing money 609 N.H. (offices) • 645 N.H.

NBAF is a start and it’s urgently needed.” The assessment must still be reviewed by a committee of the National Research Council, with those findings expected to be reported to Congress by summer. A committee that reviewed the 2010 report found shortcomings in the NBAF design, prompting changes in the engineering and Congress to mandate a further risk assessment. The earlier review found there was a 70 percent chance of accidental release of hoof and mouth disease over the 50-year life of the lab. Because of concentrations of cattle herds in the region, the NRC said such a release could cause an economic impact of between $9 billion and $50 million. DHS said that the new assessment satisfies Congressional requirement, adding the independent review used additional data and modeling methods to calculate the impact of an accidental disease release. Tom Manney, a retired Kansas State professor

with the group Biosecurity in the Heartland, said while the assessment can account for design changes made to guard against natural disasters, it can’t mitigate human factors, such as accidental infection of a staff member or the intentional release of a pathogen. “I can’t imagine how they got numbers like that,” Manney said. “I’m fairly confident that the kinds of risks that they are evaluating are not the total risks or most serious risk of release.” Kansas officials have already committed $105 million in bonding authority to assist with NBAF’s construction, including building a utility plant for the lab. Brownback and others have said the state is looking at other alternatives for helping fund the project, should federal money dry up. A site has been prepared for construction on the north side of the Kansas State campus. Sen. Pat Roberts said the assessment should be enough to allow DHS to release some $50 million in funds to begin construction.

Just Food moving into bigger location Douglas County’s food bank, Just Food, will be moving this month into a warehouse down the street at 1000 E. 11th St. The new 9,600-squarefoot location is more than double the food bank’s current site, allowing for storage of more food for an increasing number of clients. Just Food serves nearly 3,000 people each month. The move is expected to be complete April 2. Jeremy Farmer, executive director, said Just Food no longer will have to close on Wednesdays because there will be enough space to operate the food pantry and allow its 30 community partners to pick up food for their pantries. He estimated that each Wednesday Just Food turns away between 10 and 30 families seeking assistance. Just Food currently pays $2,000 per month to lease its space at 1200 E. 11th St. That rent was scheduled to go up to $2,600 in June. The new location will be $3,000 per month.

A panel of three area foodies will taste test homemade recipes Sunday as they judge the five finalists in the Lawrence Public Library’s Cranberry Creations contest. The judging will take place at 3 p.m. at the library, 707 Vt. Five area residents submitted recipes for a chance to see National Public Radio personality Susan Stamberg, who is speaking March 13 at the Lied Center for a library benefit. The grand prize includes two VIP tickets to the event and a special “Susan Stambag” prize package. The runners-up each receive two tickets to the event. Stamberg is known among NPR listeners for sharing a family recipe for cranberry relish made famous by its bright pink color. Stamberg describes it as a dish that “sounds terrible but tastes terrific.” The event’s judges are Charles Ferruza, food critic for The Pitch; Megan Stuke, who writes the “Flying Fork” blog for the Journal-World and Lawrence.com; and Ken

Warren, Kitchen Boss Man at Hy-Vee in Topeka. The recipe finalists — and their cranberry creations — are Lynne Chase, Lawrence, honey cranberry bread; Mary Getter, Lawrence, cranberry cake with hot butter sauce; Judy Keller, Lawrence, cranberry nut tart; Emily Mueller, Lawrence, cranberry shortbread cake; and Karen Whipple, Baldwin City, cranberry and orange cream scones.

Franklin Co. home destroyed in fire A rural Franklin County home was destroyed by fire early Friday, sheriff’s officials said. All family members at the home southeast of Williamsburg escaped safely, said Master Deputy Jerrod Fredricks, a spokeswoman for the Franklin County Sheriff’s office. The fire was reported about 1 a.m. at 606 Delaware Road. Fredricks said family members told officers they would be staying with relatives. The cause of the fire was still under investigation, but it may have started because of a wood-burning stove, Fredricks said.

Kim Murphree, a Lawrence police spokeswoman, said the driver, John Sauer, 29, of Lawrence, told officers he attempted to stop too quickly, causing the motorcycle to crash while heading west on Fourth Street. Police and medics were called to the scene at 1:40 a.m. Friday. Sauer was taken via ambulance to StormontVail Regional Medical Center in Topeka, and his passenger, Elizabeth Stark, 44, of Lawrence, was taken by ambulance to Kansas University Hospital in Kansas City, Kan. Stark was in critical condition when she was taken to the hospital, Murphree said.

responsibilities, the school began looking for another language teacher. As a native speaker of the language and someone who was familiar with the Waldorf-style of teaching, Sonia, who is a yoga instructor by trade, took over some of her husband’s classes. “Many Western people

go to my country and contribute their beautiful language, and I’m pretty happy I can contribute some of my language in Western countries,” she said. A fundamentally different language from English, Chinese can be hard to pick up at any age. Because Chinese is a tonal language, a different pitch can give the same sounding word several meanings. And Chinese doesn’t use verb tenses the way

English does to convey time. For Sonia, much of the interpretation is done through body language with the songs and poems being spoken over and over again. As the class sings songs, she acts out counting, emotions and movement so someone who doesn’t know the language has a good idea of what is being said. Because of the rhythmic way the language is

taught, words become lodged in the children’s memory, Jared said, even if they don’t quite know what they mean. “The parents are pleased because children go home and go on and on in Chinese,” Jared said. “They maybe half understand what is being said, but they have developed a bank of words in their head.” — Reporter Christine Metz can be reached at 832-6352.

BRIEFLY Man says he was robbed, beaten

‘There are no other options’

A 21-year-old Coffeyville man reported to Lawrence police that he was attacked by three men in a strong-armed robbery about 3 a.m. Friday in the 1100 block of Massachusetts Street. The man told officers that at 3:11 a.m. he was walking from a bar and that he approached three men standing together to ask if he could use a cellphone, said Kim Murphree, a Lawrence police spokeswoman. But the man then said he was immediately punched and kicked, even after he fell to the ground. The man alleged that one of the suspects took his wallet, went through it and then threw it on the ground. The victim recovered his wallet, but his debit card and other items were missing. The victim suffered minor abrasions, Murphree said.

Kansas Athletics has filed documents that show it has satisfied a Title IX complaint lodged by a former Kansas University swimmer who had hoped to encourage the university to offer more men’s sports. Ron Neugent, a Wichita dentist and former KU swimmer, filed an unusual complaint in 2009 under the law long used to bring about equality for women in athletics. To comply KANSAS with Title IX, a university UNIVERSITY must meet one part of a three-part test. Kansas Athletics stays in compliance with the law by closely watching the number of participants in men’s and women’s sports — sometimes monitoring rosters weekly — to ensure they’re proportional with the number of men and women enrolled at the university. Neugent found that as of 2007-08, 51 fewer men than women participated in sports at KU. That meant men were the under-represented gender. KU agreed on a course of action to resolve Neugent’s complaint with the Office of Civil Rights, which oversees Title IX regulations. The agreement didn’t mean KU was out of compliance.

SATURDAY COLUMN

New leadership is top priority for KU medical school By Dolph C. Simons Jr.

“Most of us are glad it’s over. Now we can focus our attention on other matters here at the school which need attention.” Apparently this is the opinion of many at the Kansas University School of Medicine now that the school’s application for designation as a National Cancer Center has been reviewed by a panel of experts and is in the hands of those who will give it a “thumbs up” or a “try again.” Winning a national cancer center designation was made KU’s No. 1 goal by former Chancellor Robert Hemenway. It has been a long, massive effort under the excellent leadership of Dr. Roy Jensen, assisted by a highly talented and dedicated staff and generous fiscal support by the state and private contributors. Competition for the certification will be extremely tough, and tight federal budgets make it even more challenging. Whatever the outcome, Kansans can be assured the KU application was first rate. “Other matters” refers primarily to the selection of a new dean and executive vice chan-

cellor for the school. Both of these positions are held by Dr. Barbara Atkinson, and a search is under way to seek and screen applicants for the dean’s position. Shortly after results of a long-delayed review of Atkinson were received and found to be “shockingly bad,” Atkinson announced she had been planning for some time to leave the deanship and then resign as executive vice chancellor. This was well received — in fact, enthusiastically received — by many medical school faculty members, but there was a catch: She was going to select her own successor, with the help of Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little, and then help select the new executive vice chancellor. She indicated this process might take as long as two years. Many could not understand or believe she was given the privilege of determining her own timeline for her departure and that the dean would be selected before the new vice chancellor. Why shouldn’t the vice chancellor, supposedly the senior officer, be allowed to select the new dean? Anyhow, the cancer center

review is out of the hands of those at KU Hospital, and many want the deanship and vice chancellor matter settled as soon as possible. Speculation is that now that the cancer reviewers have left town and there was no internal upheaval by faculty about the school’s leadership while the reviewers were in Kansas City, Atkinson might decide to speed her departure.

COMMENTARY The report on the cancer center review is expected to be received in about six weeks, and some are suggesting Atkinson may time her move soon after that, probably before July 1. At the same time, there is concern she may want to try to take several others — particularly KU Hospital CEO Bob Page and Gray-Little — with her. “People outside the school really don’t realize or understand how strong this woman is,” a senior medical school staff member said. “In fact, she would like to take over the chancellor’s job. She’s incredible. People are making a big mistake if they un-

derestimate her.” Other speculation centers on the possibility of doing away with the two separate positions and again naming a single person to the combined role of dean and executive vice chancellor. There’s bound to be increasing interest, guessing and rumors about the search and selection process. The level of leadership, respect and vision by the new dean and/or executive vice chancellor is critical, particularly after the Atkinson years. Gov. Sam Brownback has made it clear he wants to see an improvement in the national rankings for the medical school. He sees the accomplishments and high national rankings of KU Hospital (a separate, nonstate operation) and wonders why and what it will take to see similar rankings at the medical school. He has been told this will not come about as long as Atkinson is in a leadership position. The spectacular rise in KU Hospital’s national stature came about through the tough, visionary and demanding leadership of Irene Cumming, followed by the hospital’s current leader,

Bob Page. He and Cumming both enjoyed a strong board of trustees who helped fight the efforts of Atkinson, Hemenway and several major Kansas City leaders, who wanted to weaken KU Hospital and even the medical school in order to strengthen St. Luke’s Hospital in Kansas City, Mo. That effort was stunted primarily because of Cumming and the hospital’s strong board of trustees. Atkinson reports only to Gray-Little, and this is a serious weakness and hindrance to the medical school rising in the national rankings. Again, now that the cancer center review process is over, a large number of medical school faculty members are hopeful far greater attention will be focused on Atkinson and hiring a new dean and vice chancellor. A senior professor at the school told this writer, “It’s important that we now focus our attention on the leadership of the school and the many upcoming dramatic and sweeping changes which face the school.” Visionary, respected leadership is the most critical, No. 1 change needed at the medical school.

Rare disease proclamation Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback declared Feb. 29 as Rare Disease Day. The proclamation states:

There are nearly 7,000 diseases considered rare, and each affects fewer than 200,000 Americans.

 Together, they affect about 30 million Americans.

While 340 orphan drugs and biologics have been approved for the treatment of rare diseases affecting between 11 million and 14 million people, according to the Food and Drug Administration, that leaves more than 15 million Americans with rare diseases who have no treatment specific to their disease.

Individuals and families affected by rare diseases often experience problems such as a sense of isolation, difficulty in obtaining an accurate and timely diagnosis, few treatment options, and problems related to accessing or being reimbursed for treatment.

Donations Kennedy Krieger Institute in Baltimore has been studying adrenoleukodystrophy, a rare genetic disorder, for more than 25 years. The institute is seeking private donations to continue its research and to maintain a 10-year study regarding Lorenzo’s Oil. Lawrence resident Matthew Reimer is among 70 boys participating in the study. To donate, visit www.helpkids. kennedykrieger.org and designate the donation for the ALD Research Fund.

said there also would be the challenge of finding a pharmaceutical company to partner with. Raymond said the availability of Lorenzo’s Oil is varied in other countries, but he’s not aware of any country that has approved it as a medication. Emily said she’s thought about trying to get it from another country if the study ends, but then she wondered who would be able to do the required lab work. The Reimers just hope it doesn’t come to such drastic measures. They are contacting family and friends to help raise private donations for the research to continue. In addition, they also are contacting policymakers in Washington, D.C. “We know Lorenzo’s Oil is not a guarantee,” Emily said. “But it’s a chance to get him through childhood. I’ve never wanted him to grow up so fast.” Matthew still could get the adult form of the disease, which progresses more slowly and typically results in loss of mobility. “I’m still trying to come to terms with it all,” Emily said. “It seems like when I’m talking about — I’m not really talking about. I look at him and he looks so perfect.”

already underfunded,” he said, adding rare diseases struggle to compete with more prevalent conditions such as cancer, heart disease and Alzheimer’s. “The unfortunate reality is that difficult decisions must be made by those who review research proposals.” He expects the institute will have to rely on private donations to continue its ALD research in 2013.

In order to be approved, a drug must go through two placebo-controlled trials where the drug demonstrates a beneficial effect.

Prosecutor denies KU player was entrapped By George Diepenbrock gdiepenbrock@ljworld.com

A Douglas County prosecutor in court Friday denied that an Alcoholic Beverage Control officer used someone undercover the night he wrote Kansas University basketball player Ben McLemore a citation for minor in possession of alcohol. McLemore’s defense attorney, Al Lopes, has alleged an unknown woman bought McLemore, now 19, a drink on Nov. 4 inside Abe and Jake’s Landing and that an ABC agent ticketed McLemore — who says he did not take a drink — before his client could dispose of the Red Bull and vodka drink. Lopes said McLemore entered the

opportunities for men and women at a rate substantially proportional to the enrollment rates of men and women.

 It has a continuing practice of program expansion for an under-represented gender.

 It can demonstrate the interest and abilities of the under-represented gender are being fully accommodated. In this case, KU chose to show it was in compliance with the first option. “We are doing what we’re supposed to do in the spirit of the law,” said Jim Marchiony, associate athletics director.

club with proper identification, stayed away from the bar and wore a bracelet identifying him as underage. “He saw the defendant drinking a drink, and that’s how (the citation) happened,” said Mark Simpson, an assistant district attorney. Lopes has asked District Judge Peggy Kittel to order prosecutors to disclose to the defense the identities of ABC officers and “decoys” and other information about the alleged events because it would be essential to an entrapment defense. But Simpson said that the agent who gave McLemore the misdemeanor citation was there alone, was not working

undercover and that the agent said there was no one there that night working undercover on behalf of the ABC. “That whole scenario is something that (the agent) says did not happen,” Simpson said of the defense’s version of events. Kittel said it was an issue for a jury to decide. “Mainly this is going to come down to a factual issue of what the agent says he observed occurred and what the defendant says happened,” Kittel said. “I don’t know how that’s going to be resolved short of a trial unless you all figure out a different disposition.” Lopes has questioned how the ABC agent knew what was in the

drink because he alleged the agent never asked McLemore that question. Lopes has also asked for more information about how ABC agents are trained and what policies they follow. “What did they do, and did he follow it? That’s what I need to know,” Lopes said in court. The next hearing in the case is scheduled for May 29 when a trial date could be set. McLemore, a freshman from St. Louis, is ineligible to play in basketball games this season because the NCAA declared him a partial academic qualifier.

Judy Pottorff, corporate counsel with Kansas Athletics, said the change made at KU was a very minor one. Though KU has never received specific direction on what “substantially proportional” meant, Pottorff said the school was told it was compliant in 2007 when its male-female participation in sports differed by 1.8 percent from the enrollment figures. “It’s something we’ve always done,” she said. “We wanted to tighten it up to get it a little bit closer.” After the complaint, KU’s sports participation exactly matched the percentages of men and women enrolled at the university. In December, KU had 294 men participating in sports and 283

women, which was almost exactly the same percentages of the 8,846 men and 8,484 women enrolled on the Lawrence campus. Debbie Van Saun, Kansas Athletics’ senior woman administrator, watches the rosters carefully, and works with coaches to ensure their participation numbers stay proportional to enrollment percentages. While one person dropping out might not be significant, if the percentages get off by 10 people or more, the school will work with coaches to adjust roster sizes for upcoming seasons. Title IX complaints at the school are rare, Pottorff said. Neugent said he was disappointed with the university’s response. In a let-

ter to Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little, he said he hoped that KU could take steps to add men’s swimming and diving, and men’s tennis. That’s a move that could help its standing in the Directors’ Cup, a competition among universities that measures athletic performance in 10 men’s and 10 women’s sports, Neugent said. Today, KU offers seven men’s sports and 11 women’s sports. “I was hoping they would take it as an opportunity to add men’s sports,” and still comply with Title IX, he said. “Most schools don’t have that opportunity.”

Man faces charges related to police chase Douglas County prosecutors have filed several charges and traffic infractions against a 35-year-old Lawrence man accused of leading police on a chase Thursday in a stolen vehicle and crashing it into a tree on Iowa Street. Billy Joe Johnson faces charges of fleeing or attempting to elude police, driving on a suspended license, two counts of theft, reckless driving, leaving the scene of an accident, failing to report an accident and several traffic infractions, according to court records. Lawrence police said they briefly chased a stolen vehicle just after 5 p.m. Thursday after employees of a bank in the 900 block of Iowa reported suspicious activity near the car. Prosecutors allege Johnson, who had two passengers in the car, led police on a chase through a nearby residential area between

Ninth and 15th streets, but police called off the chase because of the amount of rush-hour traffic. Minutes later a resident in the 1200 block of Iowa Street reported a car struck a tree on his property. The three occupants had fled on foot, and police later arrested Johnson at a house in the 2500 block of Oxford Road and took the two passengers into custody. Police allege the car was stolen out of Jefferson County and had a license plate stolen from Lawrence.

HARRY

EDDIE

Offering one Tommy and the best of two worlds. A young Lab and Shepherd combo seems to make me pretty special. A bright-eyed boy of 60 pounds and one year old, I’m exuberant, fit, and love to run. Chase me all you want, but when you catch me, it’s cuddle time. I’m silly and serious, will amuse you and adore you, and most of all, love you … that’s what being Tommy is all about.

My name is Harry and I’m looking for my Sally, that is, someone special to love. I am a shy guy, a 9-year-old Australian Shepherd mix who wants to be your main man. My very striking black and white spotted coat makes me easy to spot, and I do stand out! I’m happy, handsome, and full of fun. But love is foremost on my mind, and, Sally wherever you are, I know you’ll be just wild about Harry.

I arrived at the shelter last summer, went to a new home in the fall, but now I’m back again. And although the people here are so nice, I long for a forever home of my own, a place that fits me just right. Just two years old, I’m a happy and energetic Jack Russell Terrier mix with a wonderful tri-color coat. I’m a smart little guy (30 lbs.) that knows several commands and loves other dogs.

Five have come and gone, if you count the Donald’s aborted protocandidacy. And now the sixth and most plausibly presidential challenger just had his moment — and blew it in Michigan.

It’s not over. Super Tuesday could scramble the deck. But once again, the smoke clears and Romney remains — slow, steady, unspectacular.”

ing a great victory just three weeks ago when he shockingly swept Missouri, Minnesota and Colorado — without a single convention delegate being selected? He was right. It was a great victory. Delegate counts were beside the point. These three wins instantly propelled him to the front of the field nationally and to a double-digit lead in Romney’s Michigan backyard. Then Santorum went ahead and lost it. Rather than sticking to his considerable working-class,

Reagan-Democrat appeal, he kept wandering back to his austere social conservatism. Rather than placing himself in “grandpa’s hands,” his moving tribute to his immigrant coal miner grandfather as representative of the America Santorum pledges to restore, he insisted on launching himself into culture-war thickets: Kennedy, college and contraception. He averred that John Kennedy’s 1960 Houston speech on separation of church and state makes him “throw up.” Whatever the virtues of Santorum’s expansive view of the role of religion, the insulting tone toward Kennedy who, living at a time of frank antiCatholic bigotry, understandably offered a more attenuated view of religion in the public square, was jarring, intemperate and utterly unnecessary. As was his sneering at President Obama’s wanting to open college to all. Santorum called that snobbery and an attempt at liberal indoctrination. Sure, there’s a point to be made about ideological imbalance in higher education and about the dignity of manual labor. But to do so by disdaining the most important

with that, the race. Social issues are what most deeply animate Santorum but 2012 is not the year they most animate the electorate. In Michigan, among those for whom abortion was the most important issue, Santorum won by a staggering 64 points. But they made up only 14 percent of the electorate. Seventy-nine percent cared most about the economy or the deficit. Romney won them by 17. And, of course, he won overall. But only by three points. The result should never have been that close. Romney won by default. Santorum had a clear shot and simply missed his mark. It’s not over. Super Tuesday could scramble the deck. But once again, the smoke clears and Romney remains — slow, steady, unspectacular. The tortoise in the race, dull and methodical, with an awkward, almost endearing (note: almost), stiffness. In short, a weak frontrunner in an even weaker field. Hence the current Republican gloom, the growing Democratic cockiness. But the game is young. True, given the national mood and the state of the economy, Republicans should be far ahead. They’ve blown a significant lead. But the race is still 50-50. Romney remains the presumptive nominee. His Michigan victory speech was jaunty, sharp and good. He’d advanced a serious plan for tax and entitlement reform four days earlier. Now he needs to (1) bite his tongue anytime the temptation arises to riff about class, money or cars (Cadillacs in particular), (2) ask George Bush 41 the proper way to eat pork rinds, (3) pray for yet more luck, the quality Napoleon famously valued in his generals above all others.

instrument of social mobility — one that millions of parents devoutly desire for their children — is simply bizarre. Finally, the less said about contraception the better, a lesson Santorum refused to learn. It’s a settled question. The country has no real desire for cringe-inducing admonitions from politicians about libertinism and procreative (versus pleasurable) sex. The result of these unforced errors was Santorum’s Michigan slide. His post-trifecta lead vanished. He forfeited a victory that would have shattered the Romney candidacy. Santorum knows why. He’s now recanted the Kennedy statement. And remember that odd riff with which he began his Michigan concession/victory speech? About three generations of Santorum women — mother, wife, daughter — being professional, strong, independent, i.e., modern? That was an unsubtle attempt to update his gender-relations image by a few decades. Too late. Among men, Michigan was essentially a dead heat. — Charles Krauthammer is a columBut Santorum lost women by five percentage points — and, nist for Washington Post Writers Group.

Science must guide environment policy By Leonard Krishtalka

The Republican race for the presidential nomination is entertaining, if nothing else. And there is little else, certainly about responsible science, judging from one of the two current frontrunners, former Sen. Rick Santorum. “He’s a fake,” said Ron Paul, a third candidate who is trailing badly in the hunt, but apparently still has some verbal bullets. Paul was highlighting the disconnect between Santorum’s record in Congress and his current platform. Santorum’s disconnect extends to the science of the environment, which takes the pulse of the Earth — the health of our air, water, soil, and the ongoing life support systems of the planet. He labeled President Obama’s energy policy a “phony theology,” one not based on the Bible but on “radical environmentalism,” which Santorum claims “elevates the earth above man … the belief that man is here to serve the Earth.” Santorum’s rival theology, apparently based on the Bible, claims “We’re not here to serve the Earth. The Earth is not the objective. Man is the objective. … Man should be in charge of the Earth and should have dominion over it … husband its resources … and be good stewards of it.” There are two fundamentals that Santorum does not or chooses not to understand. First, the nation elects and trusts the president to base our energy policy on the best available science, not belief or theology. It’s not encouraging that Santorum would do otherwise. Why? Because, science rests on evidence; theology rests on faith. Respect both, but let them serve their separate spheres. When the sphere is offshore drilling, fracking or climate change, the nation’s policies should be grounded in hard evidence.

YOUR TURN Second, humans have not been good stewards of the Earth. Listen to Pope John Paul II: “Unfortunately … humanity has disappointed God’s expectations. Man, especially in our time, has without hesitation devastated wooded plains and valleys, polluted waters, has disfigured the Earth’s habitat, made the air unbreathable, disturbed the hydrogeological and atmospheric systems, turned Krishtalka luxuriant areas into deserts, and undertaken forms of unrestrained industrialization, degrading … Earth, our dwelling place. Man is no longer the Creator’s ‘steward,’ but an autonomous despot, who … must stop at the edge of the abyss.” In 2008 Pope Benedict XVI announced seven new sins, one of which was “destruction of the environment.” He said, “Can we be indifferent before the problems associated with such realities as climate change, desertification, the deterioration and loss of productivity in vast agricultural areas, of pollution of rivers and aquifers, the loss of biodiversity, the increase of natural catastrophes, and the deforestation of equatorial and tropical regions? … The stewardship over nature, entrusted by God to man, will not be guided by short-sightedness or selfish pursuits.” Being the “Creator’s steward” demands that Santorum and his supporters respect humanity’s superior intellect that they believe and revere as God-given. It is this intellect that allowed us to sense the Earth’s

environment, take dominion of its resources, cover its surface with wonders and destruction, and be wary of the consequences of what we have wrought. Being a steward demands that we respect the hardwon knowledge that this intellect produces, particularly when the facts are unpopular or uncomfortable or challenge the believer to enrich their theology. Calling decades of climate research by thousands of investigators “junk science,” as Santorum has, is not stewardship, but an insult to our common intellect and the faithful’s reverence for creation. The Economist, hardly a “radical environmentalist” magazine, recognizes that we have entered a new geologic era, the Anthropocene, named for humanity, because we have become the most powerful agent of change on Earth, able to disrupt climates, oceans, and soils on a grand scale. Some think the Anthropocene started with the Industrial Revolution. Others date the Anthropocene to 10,000 years ago, when the domestication of crop plants began to spread dominion, increasingly tilling Earth’s natural ecosystems into human-managed agro-systems and built urban systems. Stewarding the environment in the Anthropocene Era is a good test of presidential mettle. Some sideline the scientific issues, choosing shortterm expediency to fit the four yearyear election cycle. Others sideline the scientific facts, choosing to deny the environmental warning signs. Electioneering favors popular pandering over hard honesty, doctrinaire simplicity over complex discourse. In the long view, pandering simplicity will not safeguard the nation’s environmental good. — Leonard Krishtalka is director of the Biodiversity Institute and a professor of ecology and evolutionary biology at Kansas University.

PUBLIC FORUM

Bible, sensuality To the editor: I was not amazed at the content of Stu Nowlin’s letter to the JournalWorld published on Feb. 27. He, like most Americans, believes they should have the right to live as they wish and not by God’s Holy Bible rules. And that is exactly what is tearing America apart today! Maybe Mr. Nowlin should study the Holy Bible. Please note that I wrote “study,” not just read. In his letter, he complained that there was no such word as sensuality in the Christian dictionary. Therefore, I have to assume he has never studied the Holy Bible. He should read and study the book of James, Chapter 3, to start. Verse 15 states that “sensual” or “sensuality” is unrestrained self-gratification. He can also find the meaning of “sensuality” in the book of Jude, verses 18-19. Also, if he or anyone else is interested, the meaning and results of “sensuality” can be found in God’s Holy Bible in the following books and verses: Ecclesiastes 11:9, Mark 7:20-21, Luke 12:19-20 and Romans 1:18 There are also other books and verses that describe being sensual — and the end results of living that lifestyle.

FREE STATE’S CHELSEA CASADY, RIGHT, TRIES TO DRIVE past an Olathe South defender. The Firebirds fell, 60-48, in their substate championship game Friday night in Leavenworth.

FSHS falls short By Benton Smith basmith@ljworld.com

LEAVENWORTH — The rematch was shaping up to mirror the original. Free State High’s girls basketball team wasn’t just hanging around with Olathe South, the team that beat the Firebirds at the buzzer three weeks earlier. FSHS had the look of a possible sub-state champion, responding to the Falcons’ speed and perimeter strength by giving O-South doses of its own medicine. For three quarters, the Class 6A sub-state title game between the two Sunflower League rivals couldn’t have been more even. That was before O-South dominated the fourth quarter and advanced to the state tournament with a 60-48 victory that ended Free State’s season. FSHS had led by as many as eight points in the third, and O-South’s lead entering the fourth was 45-43. Unfortunately for the Firebirds, their effectiveness on offense dried up late. Senior Lynn Robinson hit a cutting Kennedy Kirkpatrick for a lay-in with just more than six minutes to play, and O-South (20-2) led by just four points. But FSHS (16-6) didn’t score another basket until less than a minute remained and the game was so far out of reach coach Bryan Duncan already had pulled most of his starting lineup from the game. After hitting 17 of their 34 shots (50 percent) through three quarters, the Firebirds went 2-for-10 from the floor in the fourth with three turnovers. Duncan said the O-South defense probably had a say in Free State’s struggles down the stretch, but there was more to it than that. “The first three quarters, we were really moving, getting easy buckets,” the coach said. “I don’t think they did anything different defending us. I think you just saw us settling for quick jumpers, and there was a little bit of a lack of movement.” While athletic Falcons senior Alex Hugo scored seven Please see FREE STATE, page 3B

KANSAS SENIOR POINT GUARD TYSHAWN TAYLOR HAS OVERCOME HIS FAIR SHARE OF ADVERSITY before and since coming to KU. He’ll start his final game in Allen Fieldhouse tonight against Texas.

Taylor’s story marked by adversity By Jesse Newell jnewell@ljworld.ccom

Life is good for Tyshaw wn Taylor at Kansas Unive ersity — better, he says, thaan ever before. It’s a Wednesday in n February, and the seniorr point guard is loung-ing in a padded chair in an office next to Allen Fieldhouse, talking about how fortunate he feels to have been a part of KU’s program for four years. There’s certainly plenty to smile about.

Those who know him say many others in his shoes wouldn’t have made it this far. Taylor’s story is one about motivation, about how his family life — he spent most of his childhood serving as the man of his household — might have been the best thing for him, because just look where he is now. Taylor is one of the best point guards in the country, getting ready for his Senior Night, on the verge of making his NBA dream a reality. His life wasn’t always without its share of speed bumps, much like his KU career and even this season. But today, as he prepares for his final game at Allen

Fieldhouse and a future that is filled with promise, everything finally appears to be falling into place. YYY

Tyshawn Taylor knows his father’s name — Tyrone Garner — but when asked how to spell it, he says he’s not sure. Taylor was born in Hoboken, N.J., in 1990, and his father was a part of his life until his mother, Jeanell, and her children moved to Florida to be closer to Jeanell’s sister. “I guess it was an ‘out of sight, out of mind’ kind of thing,” Taylor says. After that, Taylor talked sparingly with his father. The brief times they spoke set him up for disappointment.

The b breaking point for Taylor cam me when he turned 12. His dad d called and asked what he wanted for his birthh day, and Taylor red quested a pair of boots. q Garner promised to se end Taylor some Timbe erlands through the maail. The package never T cam me. When Garner talked tto Taylor again, he told him that he was buying the bootts for Christmas and asked d which size he needed. Christmas came and went, and Taylor still never rec ceived the gift he was promissed. “I d didn’t need it,” Tayllor says. “I wanted to see iff he was going to do it, and he didn’t.” At the time, Taylor hated his father for lying to him and vowed never to ask Garner for anything again. He realized he had all he needed with his mother and younger sisters, Taquana and Tatiana. “My mom and my sister (Taquana) have been holding me down forever,” Taylor says. “My mom’s been my mom and my dad-kind off figure forever in my life. I’m comfortable with that.” Taylor makes it clear that, because he’s grown up, he doesn’t resent his dad or hate him. But in some ways, he realizes his father helped shape the man he’s become. “I think (for a lot) of my Please see TAYLOR, page 4B

Weis, Grunhard team up for charity event By Matt Tait mtait@ljworld.com

Grunhard

Weis

KANSAS CITY, MO. — As coincidences go, the connection between Kansas University football coach Charlie Weis and new KU offensive line coach Tim Grunhard runs pretty deep. Weis, the former Notre Dame coach, and Grunhard, the former Notre Dame player, actually met years ago at a charity golf tournament in South Bend, Ind., for the

foundation started by Weis and his wife, Maura, to benefit others with special needs like their daughter Hannah. “My niece worked there,” Grunhard said of Hannah & Friends, a charity that was founded in 2003 and has reached South Bend, Florida, Boston and now has stretched into Kansas City. “She went to Notre Dame, and I went to a golf tournament at Notre Dame for Hannah & Friends and really kind of fell in love with

the whole charity and what it stood for. I’m just really excited about being involved with them.” Friday night, at The Dubliner Irish Ale House and Pub in Kansas City’s Power and Light District, Weis and Grunhard hosted a soft opening for various members of the KU football program, athletic department and friends. Around 150 people attended and throughout the night were reminded of the reason they were there. Sure, part of

it was to give the new restaurant, which is partially owned by Grunhard, a dry run, but the most important element was to benefit Hannah & Friends. All proceeds from the event and the several KU items that were auctioned off went to the charity. “I know a lot of the enticement was KU,” Weis said. “Rock Chalk Jayhawk and all that. I get it. I’m buying in. But, really, KU is my job. Hannah & Friends is our passion.” Weis, who was joined at the

event by Maura, his son, Charlie Jr., and several members of the KU coaching staff, spoke to the crowd on a couple of different occasions. He talked about the evening, the upcoming season and shared with those in attendance his belief the Jayhawks were going to get good in a hurry. He also went further into the purpose behind the Hannah & Friends foundation — his daughter, who soon will turn 17. Please see GRUNHARD, page 3B

MLB expands postseason format from eight to 10 teams NEW YORK — With less than a month to go before opening day, baseball at last decided who’s in and who’s out come October. Now, even a third-place team can win the World Series. Major League Baseball made it official Friday, expanding the playoff format to 10 teams by adding a wild-card club to each league. “I hope we get that extra spot,” said new Houston Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow, whose team is coming off a 56106 finish that was the worst in the majors. “I think it’s great any time you have more markets involved.” Boston and Atlanta sure could’ve used this setup last year. They went through awful collapses in September that eventually cost them playoff spots on the final day of the season. “I think the more, the merrier,” new Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine said. “I think for the fans, the players, the energy at the end of the season, I don’t mind. What would it be, a third of the teams? I think it’ll be good.” This is the first switch in MLB’s postseason format since the 1995 season, when wild cards were first added. The move creates a new one-game, wild-card round in the AL and NL between the teams with the best records who are not division winners. The additions mean 10 of the 30 MLB teams will get into the playoffs. That’s still fewer than in the other pro leagues — 12 of 32 make it in the NFL, and 16 of 30 advance in the NBA and NHL. The long-expected decision was announced less than an hour before Seattle and Oakland started the exhibition season. On March 28, the Mariners and Athletics will play the big-league opener in Tokyo. “This change increases the rewards of a division championship and allows two additional markets to experience playoff baseball each year,” Commissioner Bud Selig said in a statement. Also, a tweak: For the 2012 postseason, the five-game division series will begin with two home games for lower seeds, followed by home games for the higher seed. After that, it will return to the 2-2-1 format previously used. If the World Series goes to Game 7 this year — as it did last season, when the wild-card St. Louis Cardinals won the championship — it would be played Nov. 1.

Royals’ Jeffress apologizes Saints issued bounties SURPRISE, ARIZ. — Kansas City Royals pitcher Jeremy Jeffress has apologized for a January arrest in Arizona on a domestic assault charge that was later dropped. Jeffress was booked for disorderly conduct, assault and criminal damage on Jan. 4. The latter two charges were dismissed on Jan. 24 in Surprise Municipal Court. He was sentenced to serve 20 hours of community services for the disorderly conduct charge and to attend a domestic violence counseling class. The arrest was made public Friday, and Jeffress issued a statement through the Royals, saying “There was an argument between myself and my girlfriend and I lost my temper, but I never put my hands on her.” Jeffress said a call was placed to the authorities due to property damage.

Southern Illinois fires coach Southern Illinois has fired men’s basketball coach Chris Lowery after back-toback losing seasons. Athletic director Mario Moccia announced the decision Friday. The Salukis lost, 66-51, to Indiana State in the first round of the Missouri Valley Conference tournament a day earlier and finished the season 8-23. Lowery was 145-116 in eight seasons as coach. His teams made three NCAA Tournament appearances, including the Sweet 16 in 2007.

NEW YORK — New Orleans Saints players and at least one assistant coach maintained a bounty pool of up to $50,000 the last three seasons to reward game-ending injuries inflicted on opposing players, including Brett Favre and Kurt Warner, the NFL said Friday. “Knockouts” were worth $1,500 and “cart-offs” $1,000, with payments doubled or tripled for the playoffs. The NFL said the pool amounts reached their height in 2009, the year the Saints won the Super Bowl. The league said between 22 and 27 defensive players were involved in the program and that it was administered by defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, with the knowledge of coach Sean Payton.

Ex-Broncos CB acquitted CASTLE ROCK, COLO. — A Colorado jury has acquitted former Denver Broncos cornerback Perrish Cox of sexual assault charges. The jury returned the verdict Friday morning. Cox sighed and hugged his attorney after the verdict was read. The alleged victim let out an audible sigh and a cry and said: “Oh my God, what’s happening?” Cox was accused of sexually assaulting a woman in September 2010 after a night of partying.

KU softball streak hits 14 J-W Staff Reports

CHARLESTON, S.C. — Kansas University softball ran its winning streak to 14 with two victories Friday. KU beat Charleston Southern, 6-3, and Connecticut, 8-0, in six innings. Against Charleston Southern (10-7), the Jayhawks took a 6-1 lead into the bottom of the seventh before the Buccaneers rallied. But Kristin Martinez picked up her first save in relief of Morgan Druhan (5-0).

Ashley Newman led KU offensively, going 4-for-4 with two runs. Rosie Hull was 2-for-3 with a run and two RBIs. Against UConn, Alicia Pille (6-2) allowed just one hit over the full six innings, with 10 strikeouts. Newman had three hits and Mariah Montgomery and Lexi Bryant two each for KU. Montgomery also had two RBIS. Kansas will face Wisconsin at 8 this morning and play a bracket-round

game against a to-be-determined foe later today. Kansas 6, Charleston So. 3 Chas. Southern 010 000 2 — 3 6 3 Kansas 104 100 x — 6 11 0 W — Morgan Druhan, 5-0. L — Morgan Dowdy, 6-3.

points by herself in the first five minutes of the fourth, Kirkpatrick’s three points through the first six minutes were all Free State could muster (junior sub Ariana Frantz finally scored another FSHS basket with 12 seconds left), and O-South had built a 12-point lead entering the final two minutes. After such a back-andforth game — both teams held leads in each of the first three quarters — the Falcons established separation when they needed it most. Once that happened, FSHS senior Jackie Garcia said, the Firebirds didn’t have it in them to get back in the game. With the pressure of the fourth quarter, Garcia said it didn’t register that a two- or threepossession lead wasn’t that much to overcome. “We definitely got down on ourselves,” Garcia said. While O-South got both stops and scores, Robinson said, Free State couldn’t make the plays to keep up. “We knew we were down, and we had to score, and with that in our minds the flow of the game wasn’t going as well as it had been earlier,” she said. Kirkpatrick, who led FSHS with 15 points and four assists, said the Firebirds were satisfied with their first three quarters before they stumbled in the fourth. “I thought we lost our composure,” Kirkpatrick said. “We had a couple different spurts where

they had some really easy buckets.” A big difference for the Falcons in the championship game was their ability to get to the rim from the outside. Freshman guard Kylee Kopatich and senior Megan Balcom created shots and chances for OSouth offensive rebounds with their drives. Said Robinson: “They really picked up their dribble penetration, which we weren’t able to handle very well.” FSHS sophomore Scout Wiebe’s eight rebounds led the team, and she finished with nine points. Junior Chelsea Casady scored eight points on 3-for-6 shooting. Hugo led O-South with 16 points, and Balcom scored 13. In their final game for the Firebirds, Robinson had five points and two assists, and Garcia had four points and three steals. Duncan credited the duo for leading Free State to its best regular-season record in program history. “You can’t speak highly enough about that kind of play,” the coach said. “They’ve been great for us all year.”

SAN ANTONIO — Kansas University’s baseball team rallied with a three-run ninth, but it was too little, too late in a 7-4 loss Friday at Texas-San Antonio. UTSA (7-3) opened with a four-run first, and KU (5-3) never recovered.

Knight charity event ‘successful’ J-W Staff Reports

College basketball coaching legend Bob Knight, in Lawrence to work tonight’s Kansas University game in Allen Fieldhouse against Texas, spent five hours Friday night at Lawrence Country Club going to bat for charity. Knight’s two recent appearances in Kansas — the first was in Manhattan the night before KU’s game against Kansas State — raised $40,000 for The Vernon Wells Perfect 10 Charity, which benefits single homeless women and single pregnant women. “It was quite successful,” said Marc Valenti, Perfect 10’s chief financial officer. Valenti said Friday’s event, which included Knight speaking and signing things that were auctioned off, was attended by 37 people. Manhattan’s event drew 26, Valenti said. Tickets to the event at LCC cost $650 per individual and $1,000 per couple. Knight’s son, Tim, also attended the event.

“She was the person who inspired my wife’s vision for us to do work for what we call people with different abilities,” Weis said. “We want to make the quality of life of people with different abilities a little bit better.” Weis has not been shy about sharing the importance of his foundation with his new community. He took it a step farther Friday.

Sumner 56, De Soto 54 BALDWIN — K.C. Sumner erased a four-point deficit going into the fourth quarter and beat De Soto by two, despite Joey Johnson’s 26 points and Derek Wedel’s 21 for De Soto.

Ottawa 60, Spring Hill 56 BALDWIN — Ottawa outscored Spring Hill 17-4 in the fourth quarter to come back and win. Semi Ojeleye scored 35 points for Ottawa. Ottawa will play Kansas City Sumner at 7:30 tonight in Baldwin for the sub-state title and a Class 4A state berth.

“One of the most important things we want you to know is wherever we raise the money, that’s where the money goes,” Weis said. “The money we raise tonight will be going to this community.” For Grunhard, that was the best part about attaching his new business endeavor to the cause. “Really, because of Hannah & Friends, I sit where I sit now,” said Grunhard, who said the charity was at least in part responsible for him landing the job at Kansas. “This whole thing just worked out really

well. We really needed our staff to get a little experience, and with the excitement of the Big 12 tournament coming next week and this wonderful charity, it just worked out perfect. The stars were aligned for a great event.” Friday’s festivities also were dubbed a kickoff to March Madness, and as the men’s and women’s Big 12 Tournaments invade the area next week, Grunhard had one final message for KU fans. “Even though it’s an Irish bar, we kind of want to make it a Jayhawk bar, too,” he said.

Casey Selsor (3-0) won. He allowed just one run off five hits over eight innings. Frank Duncan (2-1) took the loss. He allowed four runs — all earned, all in the first — off nine hits over six innings. Jake Marasco was 2-for4 with two runs, and Chris

TYSHAWN TAYLOR (10) JAMS IN TWO POINTS to give KU a one-point lead with 26 seconds remaining in the Jayhawks’ 87-86 overtime victory against Missouri on Feb. 25 in Allen Fieldhouse.

life, everything that I did was pretty much to tell him, ‘I told you so,’” Taylor says. “Somebody that I didn’t see, didn’t know, I was trying to prove him wrong, like, ‘I don’t need you to be good at something. I don’t need you to be a success.’” YYY

It’s impossible to know where Tyshawn Taylor would be now if Stephanie Crawford hadn’t introduced herself while he was playing basketball on the playground in Clearwater, Fla. Taylor, 8 at the time, returned home and told his mother that Crawford wanted to meet with her. Crawford, who has coached boys and men’s basketball since 1987, talked to Jeanell about Taylor playing for her AAU team, Prime Time. The women became instant friends. Crawford, who would load up her eight or nine AAU players in her RV to travel across the area for tournaments, later became Taylor’s godmother. When Jeanell fell on especially hard times, Crawford offered to take Tyshawn into her home to be a guardian-like figure for him. That arrangement lasted about a year and a half, and Taylor was able to get love and guidance from both his godmother and his mother, whom he still saw frequently. “We were like good cop, bad cop,” Crawford says. “I would put the foot down and drop the hatchet. I would love him up, but I’d also kick him in the (butt).” When Taylor’s report card came back with a few F’s, Crawford sat Taylor out of all basketball activities until he was able to bring his grades up. The coach made him come to practice but forced him to sit and watch his teammates play. “I just thought he was going to die,” Crawford says. “He thought that I would let up, and I didn’t.” Taylor’s butterbean eyes and alligator tears made him tough to discipline. He melted Crawford’s heart, but she knew she was doing the right thing. And 6 1/2 weeks later, Taylor rejoined the team after presenting a report card with A’s and B’s. “His grades have never been a problem again,” Crawford says. Crawford — who spent the last three seasons as Hillsborough High’s boys varsity basketball coach in Tampa — said she saw a different drive in Taylor than her other players. The older he got and the more Crawford demanded of him, the hungrier he became to succeed. Before Taylor made his way to St. Anthony in Jersey City, N.J., for his final three years of high school, Crawford also saw a fun-

loving kid with an infectious smile whose personality and self-confidence were developing at a rapid pace. During one AAU trip to Lakeland, Fla., Crawford took her team to eat at a Hooters restaurant, letting the kids eat at their own table. A few minutes later, when she turned around, the whole team was gone. The coach jumped out of her seat to look for her players and quickly found them around a corner. The team was getting photos taken with the Hooters girls, and Taylor was right in the middle — arms around a couple of them — with a big smile. YYY

Last Valentine’s Day, Jeanell Taylor opened her house door after hearing a knock. Standing before her was the man in Jeanell’s life, holding a teddy bear, six roses and a white balloon with red hearts on it. “I love you, Mom,” Taylor said after she opened the door. Jeanell is still touched nearly a month later. “He just wants to see a smile on my face,” Jeanell says. Tyshawn is especially close with his mom knowing all she did for him growing up. He was there in Florida when she worked long hours — any time from 8 in the morning to 9 at night — to try to provide for her family. He was also there when his mom struggled. Tyshawn came home one day when the lights had been shut off because there wasn’t enough money to pay the electric bill. Jeanell still always made time for her oldest child. “I’ve seen some tough times, but I’ve always seen good times,” Tyshawn says. “My mom, she’s always made it to where we’re comfortable and we’re good.” And though Jeanell’s admittedly emotional, Tyshawn noticed growing up that his mother always tried her hardest never to cry in front of him. She knew that if she was in tears, Tyshawn would be sobbing right along with her. Jeanell was 18 when Tyshawn was born, and she made her children promise her that, if nothing else, they would finish high school and get their degrees. After four years at KU, Taylor is set to graduate in May, majoring in communication studies with a minor in American studies. When he does, he’ll become one of the first members of his family to earn a college diploma. YYY

Pick-up basketball isn’t supposed to be serious. It was last summer, though, when fifth-year KU guard Conner Teahan saw Taylor going against the norm: He was using the light-hearted scrimmages to teach teammates and try to make them better.

“He was taking responsibility,” Teahan says, “as this being his team.” Taylor hadn’t been as much of a communicator in the past, mostly because he didn’t have to be. Last year’s team had seniors Tyrel Reed and Brady Morningstar and juniors Marcus and Markieff Morris. The two years before that, Sherron Collins served as the team’s emotional and vocal leader. Teahan said it was apparent early in the summer that this was a different Taylor. The senior was telling his teammates what they needed to do on certain plays, or suggesting a better way to get open in certain situations. Taylor also wasn’t afraid to go to the other upperclassmen, one time telling Teahan to take a couple of extra dribbles or get rid of the ball faster to keep the offense moving. Before KU had played any games, Teahan also remembers gathering the team in the locker room after a second straight poor practice. He looked at Taylor and forward Thomas Robinson, saying, “I don’t care what happens, but we’re not going to be the team that this Big 12 streak ends with.” Teahan looked in Taylor’s eyes and knew he felt the same way. “I’m not going out like that,” Taylor said. At the time, many analysts questioned whether KU was talented enough to continue its streak of seven straight league titles. “I think Tyshawn took that really personally,” Teahan said, “because I think people questioned his ability to lead a team.” No one is now. Before every game, when the team huddles up, it’s either Taylor or Robinson who says the final words. At halftime, when the Jayhawks need a spark, Taylor’s the one who enters the locker room and tells his teammates what they need to be doing ... before Self even has a chance to speak. Everything from his demeanor to his message impresses Self. “He’s a coach,” Self says. Self has been amazed at how many times that Taylor has chided teammate Elijah Johnson for not being aggressive. And how often he gets into center Jeff Withey, telling him, “You’ve got to score in there, big fella.” Self says a moment after Monday’s game most epitomizes Taylor’s growth, as during an ESPN interview, Taylor was asked about Oklahoma State senior Keiton Page’s 29-point performance. Taylor talked about how great Page had been despite the fact that he had just scored 27 points himself, which included 10 straight points during a decisive second-half run. “He’s come a long ways,” Self says. “His thoughts are unselfish.” Teahan, for his part,

doesn’t think fans realize just how much Taylor cares. That was especially evident a month ago, when Taylor had two missed free throws and two turnovers in the final 90 seconds of a 74-71 loss at Missouri. The next day, Teahan noticed his phone had a text; Taylor had sent out a message to apologize to his teammates for his poor play down the stretch. He also told them he’d learn from it and would continue to have their backs. KU hasn’t lost since, edging Missouri 87-86 in overtime last week at Allen Fieldhouse — Taylor had nine of the team’s 12 points in overtime, including the game-winning free throws — before claiming the outright Big 12 title with Monday’s 70-58 victory over Oklahoma State. “A lot of times people say, ‘Well, this place has been good for Tyshawn.’ That is true,” Self says. “But it’s a marriage. And Tyshawn’s certainly been good for this place.” YYY

Tyshawn Taylor retells the story with hardly any emotion, almost as if he’s talking about a reunion with an old acquaintance. Taylor returned to New Jersey this past Christmas, making plans to meet up with his grandmother at her new home. When he showed up, he was surprised to see an unexpected face: that of Tyrone, his father. He noticed immediately that he had become taller than his old man. He gave him a hug, and the two talked for a while ... though words didn’t come easily. Tyrone did tell Taylor he was proud of him. “I think as a younger male, I resented him, and I hated him, and I was like, ‘Damn, what if I had a father? I could have been so much better off,’” Taylor says. “Then I think about it now, I probably could have been worse off if he was in my life. Like I said, there’s no resentment.” Taylor met up with a lot of his family on his dad’s side, including his brothers, two of his sisters and his cousins. One of his family members took a picture of Taylor with his father. “I think it was good that I got a chance to see him,” Taylor says, “before I start to take these next stages in my life.” Tyrone won’t be at Allen Fieldhouse tonight, but those who played the biggest part in Taylor’s life will. That includes Crawford, who made plans to fly in from Florida. She said she wouldn’t miss it for the world. Taquana and Tatiana also will be there, escorting Taylor on the court during the Senior Night celebration. Taylor’s final escort will be Jeanell. She knows — this time — it’ll be OK to let the man in her life see her cry. “I think she’s happy,” Taylor says, “just seeing me live my dream.”

Fox takes Latin turn Fox yanks “COPS” from its long-held Saturday perch to air “Q’Viva! The Chosen” (7 p.m.), a talent-search contest produced by Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony. Along with choreographer Jamie King, the apparently amicably broken-up tandem will scour more than 20 Latin American countries to find the most exciting, authentic talents to recruit for a Las Vegas production. Because nothing says authentic like Las Vegas. ‘‘Q’Viva!” has been airing on the Spanish-language Univision network since late January. Broadcasters should be paying attention to this show. And not just to see the winner. How many English-speaking American viewers will embrace this show? How many Spanish-speaking Americans will watch it in English? Broadcasters have been trying to attract this crossover demographic for years with shows like ABC’s Americanized “Ugly Betty,” CBS’ “Rob” and Sofia Vergara’s voluptuous telenovela-style character on “Modern Family” on ABC. The success of “Q’Viva!” could also go a long way toward integrating Latin music into the pop mainstream. One of the curious things that struck me about the recent and wildly popular Grammy Awards was the complete absence of Latin music and culture. Why is there a separate Latin Grammy Awards?

Filled with grim characters, criminal acts and grainy re-enactment footage, “Deadly Sins” (8 p.m., ID) joins the true-crime genre with one notable hook: Every episode is organized around one of the seven deadly sins. The series kicks off with the tale of a handsome Marine whose gluttony for sex threatens his marriage, his relationship with the Corps and even his life. One quibble: this “Sins” installment never explains the difference between “gluttony” for sex and oldfashioned “lust.”

Eager for “Mad Men” to return at the end of March? Take some solace in “We’ll Take Manhattan” (9 p.m., Ovation). The original 2012 film, seen recently on British television, recreates the fashion scene of the early 1960s and concentrates on a 1962 fashion shoot that kindled an affair between photographer David Bailey (Aneurin Barnard) and model Jean Shrimpton (Karen Gillan).

Tonight’s other highlights

Johnny Depp plays the Mad Hatter in director Tim Burton’s adaptation of “Alice in Wonderland” (7:30 p.m., ABC Family).

“20/20” (8 p.m., ABC) looks at secret addictions.

In fact, most doctors spend their lunch (and sometimes dinner) trying to catch up. Medical care is unpredictable, so bring something to keep you (and your children) occupied. Florida: Parents are teaching their children that if they have to wait too long, it’s someone else’s fault and so it’s OK to take gloves and tongue depressors.

House committee flooded with redistricting maps By John Hanna Associated Press

TOPEKA — A flurry of map-making by Kansas House members left their Redistricting Committee with 18 proposals Friday for redrawing the state’s congressional districts, creating the possibility of a drawn-out debate over picking one. House members submitted 10 proposals alone Friday, some variations on plans they’d already seen for adjusting the lines of the four districts to account for shifts in population over the past decade. The 1st District of western and central Kansas is nearly 58,000 residents short of the ideal district population of 713,280 and must pick up territory, though there’s disagreement on where. House Speaker Mike O’Neal, a Hutchinson Republican who appointed himself the committee’s chairman, told members that he doesn’t plan to

Research Triangle opens 3rd building OVERLAND PARK (AP) — The last of three northeastern Kansas facilities that make up the so-called Education and Research Triangle opened its doors Friday. Gov. Sam Brownback was among the speakers during the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the $23 million building that expands the Kansas University’s Edwards Campus in Overland Park by more than half. Called the Business, Engineering, Science and Technology Building, the 75,000-square-foot facility was financed through an eighth-cent sales tax increase approved by Johnson County voters in 2008. Among the estimated $15 million the sales tax raises each year, about $50,000 will go to pay for scholarships for Johnson County residents to enroll in business, engineering, science and technology programs at the Edwards Campus. With the new building, the campus will be able to serve 1,000 additional students and offer 10 new degree programs.

O’Neal Davis allow “drawing on the fly” during debate, so the committee will take upor-down votes on entire proposals. He scheduled hearings for next week and a vote for March 12. O’Neal acknowledged it’s relatively easy for legislators to draw maps with only four districts using the Legislature’s special computer software. “It’s kind of addictive,” said O’Neal, who submitted two similar proposals himself. The proposals before the House committee include a bipartisan plan approved by the Senate last month. But many Republicans don’t like it because it would create a slightly more Democratic 2nd Dis-

trict in eastern Kansas for Congresswoman Lynn Jenkins, the senior member of the state’s all-GOP delegation in the U.S. House. Many Republican legislators and GOP Gov. Sam Brownback want to keep Manhattan, home of Kansas State University, in the 2nd District, rather than having a growing 1st District swallow it up, as the Senate plan does. House members are considering splitting either Topeka or the Kansas City area between two districts, and a few plans divide both. Most of their plans reunite Lawrence in a single district, rather than leaving it split between two, as it is now. House Minority Leader Paul Davis, of Lawrence, the Redistricting Committee’s ranking Democrat, said the process of finding an acceptable plan has become chaotic. “A lot of these maps are making pretty radical changes to the existing districts,” he said.

Obama warns both Iran and Israel, ‘I don’t bluff’ By Anne Gearan Associated Press

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama delivered his most explicit threat yet that the United States will attack Iran if that’s what it takes to prevent it from developing a nuclear bomb. At the same time, he warned Israelis they would only make a bad situation worse if they moved preemptively against Iranian nuclear facilities. The double-barreled warning, in an interview published Friday, came before Obama’s high-stakes meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday and a speech Sunday to the AmericanIsrael Public Affairs Committee, a powerful proIsraeli lobby. Obama said an Israeli strike would stir sympathy for the Islamic republic in a region where it has few allies. But he made clearer than before that Iran could face attack

from the United States. “I think both the Iranian and the Israeli governments recognize that when the United States says it is unacceptable for Iran to have a nuclear weapon, we mean what we say,” Obama told The Atlantic magazine. “I don’t bluff.” He said Iran and Israel both understand that “a military component” is among a mix of many options for dealing with Iran, along with sanctions and diplomacy, making plain a threat to attack that had previously been more subtly implied. The warning reveals how the threat that Iran could pose to Israel has eclipsed every other issue in the close but often contentious U.S. relationship with Israel, and raised the political stakes for Obama. Iran’s disputed nuclear ambitions dwarf the unfinished business of peace with the Palestinians and Obama’s sometimes testy relationship with Netanyahu.

BUSINESS AT A GLANCE

Notable

A federal judge ruled Friday that the National Labor Relations Board can require most private businesses to put up posters telling workers they have a legal right to form a union. But U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson limited how the board can enforce the requirement. She said simply failing to display the new NLRB poster isn’t automatically a legal violation without other evidence of antiunion conduct. The ruling pleased labor groups but disappointed business groups, which argued the new poster is too one-sided and seems to encourage workers to join unions. The posters, to be displayed effective April 30, explain workers’ rights to bargain collectively, distribute union literature and engage in other union activities without fear of reprisal. They also explain that workers have a right not to join a union.

Employee groups uncertain about Kan. pension plan By John Hanna Associated Press

TOPEKA — Public employee groups in Kansas have misgivings about a legislative proposal unveiled Friday for overhauling the state pension system, even though it backs away from starting a 401(k)-style plan for new teachers and government workers. Details of the proposal were unveiled during a meeting of the House Pensions and Benefits Committee by Chairman Mitch Holmes, a St. John Republican. Its key feature is a new retirement plan for public employees hired starting in 2014, one designed to limit financial risks both for the state and the workers. The committee is expected to debate it next week. The Kansas Public Employees Retirement System projects an $8.3 billion shortfall between anticipated revenues and benefits promised to employees through 2033. That’s led some Republican legislators and GOP Gov. Sam Brownback to advocate moving to a 401(k)-style plan for new hires and away from traditional KPERS plans that provide benefits based on a worker’s salary and years of service. Public employee groups oppose starting a 401(k)style plan, and some legislators began to question the cost of starting one while trying to close the longterm funding gap. Holmes’ plan attempts to address such concerns, but public employee group lobbyists — who initially were encouraged by talk of a new approach — said Friday they worry workers still would see diminished

retirement benefits and greater financial risk. “It may be a little better than a 401(k), but it’s not the correct answer to the problem,” said Jerry Marlatt, a lobbyist for the Kansas State Council of Fire Fighters. The proposal outlined by Holmes would create a new retirement plan that would not base benefits on a worker’s salary and years of service, as is traditional, but on how much the employee and the state contributed. Yet instead of tying benefits to long-term investment earnings, as a 401(k)-style plan would, an employee would be guaranteed 5 percent interest on the contributions annually. Upon retirement, workers would have a lump sum that could be converted into an annuity. “The challenge there was to get something that’s meaningful and yet something that is not too big a risk to the state,” Holmes said. Under the proposal, if KPERS investment earnings exceed 5 percent annually — and its long-term assumption is 8 percent — the difference could go to closing the long-term funding gap. “That is not, probably, a popular thought, but my intention is to get out of debt,” said committee Vice Chairman John Grange, an El Dorado Republican, who was involved in drafting the new plan. Some legislators and other critics of traditional pension plans say Kansas can’t afford to continue guaranteeing a certain level of benefits, regardless of KPERS investment earnings.
