GOP candidates turn attention to Kansas By Scott Rothschild firstname.lastname@example.org
TOPEKA — Now with Super Tuesday states in their rear view mirrors, Republican presidential candidates are focusing on the Kansas GOP caucus on Saturday. The stakes are high in the tight race as Kansas Republicans will caucus in 96 locations around the state to vote for their preferred nominee. The results will determine how the Kansas GOP allocates its 40 delegates to the Republican National Convention. On Wednesday, Rick Santorum stopped in Lenexa. At 7:30 p.m. Friday, Ron Paul will be at the Lied Center. Newt Gingrich had initially planned to make
several appearances in Kansas on Friday and Saturday but then canceled. On Saturday, Paul planned to speak at caucus sites in Johnson County. GOP officials were still awaiting word about whether Mitt Romney would make it to Kansas. In Douglas County, the GOP caucus will be held at Free State High School. Richard Todd, chairman of
the Douglas County Republican Party, said he was expecting upwards of 2,000 people, including U.S. Rep. Lynn Jenkins, RTopeka, whose district includes the western portion of Douglas County. Statewide, GOP officials said they were hoping for 50,000 to 60,000 Republicans to participate. “I think there are a lot of people interested in getting things moving for Republicans,” Todd
said. “The desire is there; a real sense of urgency in getting something done,” he said. Todd said he hoped the caucus would serve as a springboard to energize the local GOP in races up and down the ballot. Doors to the caucus will open at 8 a.m. At 10 a.m. representatives of each candidate will be allowed to give a speech. Then voting will begin. Todd said the caucus should wrap up around 1 p.m. He said volunteers are still needed to help out. A training session for those who want to volunteer will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday at St. John Catholic Church.
The Topeka Police Cold Case Unit wasn’t sure it had any DNA evidence left in the 1985 unsolved rape of a woman in downtown Topeka. If it had evidence, there would be no guarantee of usable test results. And if it could be tested, there would be a chance the DNA profile wouldn’t match anyone currently entered into CODIS, the national DNA databank. But against Joe Jones those odds, spent seven D e t e c t i v e years in prison Adam Arens- after he was dorf of the wrongfully Topeka Po- convicted. lice Department said on Wednesday that the unit had received a hit in the DNA databank, moving closer to solving the 27-year-old crime. “A person has been identified,” Arensdorf said. “We’re very excited about this.” Police must first retest the suspect’s DNA to verify

Sleep experts: Prepare for losing an hour with daylight saving time By Karrey Britt email@example.com
Tick tock. Tick tock. At 2 a.m. Sunday, we will be springing our clocks forward for daylight saving time and losing an hour of the day. Health experts prefer that it’s not sleep. “One of the problems with Americans is that we’re already sleep deprived, and that can be more of a problem when we
shift an hour,” said Bob Whitman, director of Kansas University Hospital’s Sleep Disorders Center. Sleep deprivation can cause fatigue, clumsiness, weight gain or loss, and problems with concentration, among other things. Whitman said the average person needs between seven and nine hours of sleep each night, and those hours can’t be made up.
His advice: Start adjusting today by going to bed and getting up 30 minutes earlier. Additionally, Dr. Lida Osbern, a specialist in pulmonary and sleep medicine at Reed Medical Group in Lawrence, said the time change can throw our circadian rhythm, or internal clocks, off — similar to a mini jet lag. Some suggestions to help re-
trouble adjusting in the past. Both Whitman and Osbern said it may take some Americans up to a week to adjust to the time change, but for the majority set our own clocks:

Theft of rare lorikeet from Lawrence pet store disappoints children By Shaun Hittle firstname.lastname@example.org
The theft of a rare bird, a lorikeet named Sassy Girl, from Pet World, 711 W. 23rd St., has broken the hearts of at least two area children. “I was just really sad and mad at the same time,” said Ryley Wheat, 9, a third-grader at Quail Run School. Ryley became close to Sassy Girl, who was stolen Feb. 6, during animal camp at the store. She had been pinching pennies and saving up ever since to buy the $900 bird.
“I really wanted to buy that bird,” said Ryley, who had stuffed away $400 doing chores and collecting birthday money. Reagan Garcia, 8, a second-grader at Broken Arrow School, also “fell in love” with Sassy Girl at the camp, said Reagan’s mom, Aimee. “She was devastated,” said Garcia when they saw a post on Facebook about the theft. Bird thefts are rare, said Sherry Emerson, Pet World co-owner, and this was just the second bird theft from the store in 24 years.

DNA CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1A
the match before they’ll release the name, Arensdorf said. He estimates that could take two to six weeks. Topeka resident Joe Jones, who was wrongfully convicted of the rape and who spent seven years in prison before being exonerated by DNA evidence, said he’s excited he may finally get some closure in the case. “Wow,” said Jones, notified by phone Wednesday of the development. The case has taken many turns over the years. Convicted of rape in 1986 based primarily on eyewitness testimony, Jones persuaded lawyers at the Kansas University Defender Project to take his case. In 1992, lawyers were able to obtain DNA testing, which excluded Jones as the rapist. At the time, Jones was just the seventh person in the country to be exonerated by DNA evidence. Jones was featured in a Journal-World article last year, detailing the struggles and psychological pain caused by his wrongful conviction and incarceration. At the time of that story, the Journal-World discovered that the DNA that freed Jones was sitting in a cooler in California, in the custody of the science firm that helped exonerate Jones. That prompted the Topeka police to reopen the case. In addition to the DNA stored in California, police located further evidence in the Kansas Bureau of Investigation storage vault. It was that evidence the KBI tested, resulting in the match in the DNA databank. The victim in the case, who now lives out of state, said she still believed Jones was her attacker when interviewed for the story last year. But the investigation has helped change her mind, she said. The woman has been in frequent contact with Topeka police and is willing to participate in the investigation. Arensdorf said police are now reinvestigating the crime, as well as the suspect identified by the DNA, and they plan to reinterview witnesses.

Mobile print shop promotes moveable type By Alex Garrison firstname.lastname@example.org
ONLINE: See the video at LJWorld.com
Kyle Durrie likes to think she’s giving people a little bit of new education in a very old subject, one handmade card at a time. Since June, Durrie, a resident of Portland, Ore., has been touring the country in her “type truck,” a truly moveable moveabletype studio made from a gutted 1982 Chevy step van. So far she has reached at least 123 cities. Printing like she does as an artist has been around for centuries, she says, but it’s still relevant — and, almost more significantly, “working with your hands in a nondigital format, it’s increasingly rare, and it’s important,” she said. Parked in front of Wonder Fair, 803 Mass., on Wednesday, Durrie invited folks into the truck to experience firsthand the process of printmaking. She set up one of her two presses — the other is at least 100 years old — with “Ad astra per aspera, Lawrence, Kansas” from woodcut letters and had members of the crowd who participated roll gold ink across them, lay a card on top and roll the press — Reporter Shaun Hittle can be reached over to create a print. at 832-7173.

Emerson said the theft occurred during a busy day; she estimates about 50 customers, as well as a tour, were in the store at the time of the crime. She thinks that several thieves were working together, distracting employees. Sassy Girl was housed in an open bird cage with one other bird. An employee noticed the bird missing after a few minutes and called police. The biggest concern right now, Emerson said,
is the bird’s health. Lorikeets, a medium-sized parrot native to southeast Asia and Australia, require a special nectar diet. Regular bird feed will make the bird sick, Emerson said. Emerson said she’s hopeful the bird will be found or returned. It’s such a rare bird, she said, that those in the bird community will be suspicious if someone brings it to a store or tries to sell it. The other bird that was stolen about 10 years ago was left at another pet store, which called Emerson and returned the bird. Ryley is still shaking off the shock of the theft
the community,” she said. “It’s at least a basic education in giving them a feel — a small, firsthand experience.” She travels largely thanks to fundraising from the creative-donations website Kickstarter.com, and finds galleries, universities and print shops to park near. Meredith Moore, coowner of Wonder Fair, said Durrie’s experiment in, as she writes on her blog, “adventures in printing,” should be an inspiration to other artists. “It’s good to see someone do something strange,” Moore said, “and be happy and successful in doing it.” She also agreed with Durrie’s belief that a centuries-old technique can be a part of a new education, and a modern life. “DIY culture is really on the rise, especially for young people — we read books on small, illuminated devices but to do something tangible like printmaking is really cool.” Durrie and the moveable type truck will be at the Spencer Museum of Art, on Kansas University’s campus, from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. today. Durrie takes donations and sells handmade prints. — Reporter Alex Garrison can be reached at 832-7261.

Experts: Don’t put off planning for end-of-life care By Karrey Britt firstname.lastname@example.org
While we don’t like to talk about accidents and illness and dying, we need to. In fact, we need to plan for them.

The program, sponsored by the Kaw Valley Older Women’s League, was attended by about 35 people.
To start the program, a 10-minute video was shown on the famous Terri Schiavo case. It was a seven-year legal battle between Schiavo’s parents, who wanted to keep her alive, and her husband about whether to remove her feeding tube. The battle went to the Supreme Court, and in 2005, the feeding tube was removed. She died 13 days later. The case served as a stark reminder of the possible Please see PLANNING, page 4A

TOPEKA — The impact that a proposed anti-abortion bill would have on the Kansas University Medical Center has become a key issue. State Rep. Sean Gatewood, D-Topeka, who opposes the bill, said Wednesday that if the measure were enacted into law, the KU Medical Center would lose accreditation for its obstetrics/gynecology program. “It would cause them to not be able to train OB/ GYNs anymore,” Gatewood said. House Bill 2598, called the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act, is currently before the House Federal and State Affairs Committee. Abortion opponents are urging passage of the bill, HEALTH which makes numerous changes to state law restricting abortions. One provision of the bill states: “No health care services provided by any state agency, or any employee of a state agency while acting within the scope of such employee’s employment, shall include abortion.” That could cause problems for KU Medical Center’s residents, who are considered state employees, and accreditation of its OB/GYN program. The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education said it doesn’t comment for or against pending legislation on abortion, but in a statement the group presented its policy on accreditation. “No program or resident with a religious or moral objection shall be required Please see ABORTION, page 4A

Changes to Lone Star Lake Park rules approved By Christine Metz email@example.com
Visitors to Lone Star Lake Park can still set off fireworks, but it will cost more to camp there overnight. On Wednesday, the Douglas County Commissioners approved changes to rules and regulation at the park, which is about 12 miles southwest of Lawrence. In August, the County Commission took a closer look at the park’s regulations in the wake of two drownings. A review already under way for regulations for camping, fishing and boating was expanded to include swimming policies. At that time, commissioners balked at staff’s suggestion to ban fireworks, which is allowed in the days surrounding the Fourth of July. County staff said they spend significant time and money monitorA review ing and already un- c l e a n der way for ing up regulations the fireworks. for camping, In the fishing and a m e n d boating was m e n t s a p expanded proved to include Wednesday, fireswimming works policies. w e r e still allowed. But here’s what has changed:
Dogs will be allowed off leash in designated areas. An off-leash dog area is planned for the southern portion of the lake.
All-terrain vehicles will be prohibited on surfaces other than developed roads and developed parking lots.
Swimming at the park will be limited to May 1 through Sept. 15, which coincides with the dates that fishing is prohibited in the designated swimming area.
No swimming will be allowed beneath the docks.
Water skiing is allowed between May 20 and Sept. 15 of each year on Wednesdays through Sundays and from noon to 8 p.m. It will also be allowed on Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day and other days the county commissioners approve.
Daily camp fees for the park have gone up from $7 to $11 for sites with no electricity and from $12 to $16 for sites with electricity. The rules will go into effect April 1.
KU student leaders seek Grants to renovate Wescoe Beach
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 3A
By Andy Hyland firstname.lastname@example.org
A popular central gathering spot on the Kansas University campus could get a facelift if KU’s Student Senate gives its approval. Libby Johnson, KU’s student body president, is helping to gather support for a plan that would add lighting, seating and bigger, shadier trees to Wescoe Beach, the large concrete area between Wescoe Hall and Jayhawk Boulevard. Today, Johnson said, the area is “mostly a sea of concrete with some potted plants in the middle.” Many KU students use the area as a KANSAS UNIVERSITY place to relax between classes, and several student groups often set up tables to interact with the students walking by. “It’s something that a lot of students have talked to us about, and I think that it will create a significant change for students,” Johnson said. Two Student Senate committees were scheduled to consider on Wednesday night a measure that would contribute $100,000 to the project. The measure would still require approval from the full KU Student Senate. Jack Martin, a KU spokesman, said an additional $100,000 for the project would be matched

consequences of not planning. Linda Upstill, chairwoman of the Lawrence-area Coalition to Honor End-ofLife Choices, said everyone who is 18 and older should have a Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care, which is a legal document that allows a person to designate someone to make health care decisions during a period of disability or incapacity. “It can be really difficult for families to make the decisions,” she said. “It’s much easier if that person has made the decision about what kind of medical interventions they might want, and it alleviates any guilt from survivors who might wonder if they made the right decision.” Also, everyone needs to decide what type of care they might want.

Federal and State Affairs Committee Steve Brunk, R-Wichita, said the KU Medical Center issue has been discussed by committee members. He said part of the problem was that KU officials raised the issue after the public hearing on the bill was closed. KU has offered an amendment that would exempt medical residents employed by the KU Medical Center from the prohibition who are being trained “in relevant proce-

dures for such purposes in facilities that are not owned and operated by any agency or authority of the state of Kansas.” Brunk said he would not offer the amendment but said any other committee member could. And, he said, if the bill were approved in committee and the House without the amendment, it could be changed while in the Senate. He said the committee will vote on the bill today. KU Medical Center issued a statement, saying that it was trying to work with legislators “in an effort to avoid any unintended consequences that could threaten the University of Kansas School of Medicine’s accreditation.” The statement added: “Abortions are not performed at the University of Kansas Hospital, which is the primary site of resi-

He said the idea was brought up by student leaders in their meetings with the provost and chancellor. Johnson said another $50,000 for the project would come from KU’s Campus Safety Advisory Board. If approved, the plan would remove the potted plants and replace them with bigger trees planted in the ground, along with light poles with LED lights. New stone benches would provide a new seating configuration, said Peg Livingood, a landscape architect with KU’s Design and Construction Management who has worked on the project. The seating today isn’t as conducive for groups, she said. “You really can’t be in a group and sit and discuss

She said it can bring a lot of peace of mind. According to the Coalition to Honor End-of Life Choices, or CHEC, about 75 percent of the population does not have an end-of-life care plan. Among those attending the program, about 50 percent did not. Eva Edmands, 83, of Lawrence, found that concerning. While she doesn’t have any family members, she has a 40-something friend in Arizona who will make her health care decisions if she is unable to, and she has a trustee at a bank to carry out her financial wishes.

dency training for residents at the University of Kansas Medical Center in Kansas City. Accreditation requirements for Obstetrics/Gynecology residencies, however, require that residents gain experience with induced abortion and complications due to abortion, unless they have a religious or moral objection. Consequently, residents in Ob/ Gyn acquire necessary experience in abortion procedures elsewhere in facilities that are not owned or operated by the state of Kansas.” KU Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little, who was at the Capitol to talk with legislators about KU funding on Wednesday, declined to comment on the controversy. — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.
because it’s very linear,” she said. The project is still preliminary, she said, and could change based on the amount of funding allocated. If funding is approved, the project could be done quickly, Livingood said. “If all the stars align, it could be this summer,” she said. It could take longer, too, she said, depending on how the project is funded.
to meet basic needs of low-income and disabled residents. “The extent of need has grown as a result of the economy. There are more safety net organizations that provide basic needs for things like food, shelter and medical care. And all of those agencies are seeing a rapid increase in demand. We tried as best as we could to fund as many of those as possible because people are hurting in our community,” Hull said. This year’s largest award went to Health Care Access Clinic, which was given $15,000 to expand health services for uninsured residents. The foundation also gave $10,000 to renovate the day center for Family Promise of Lawrence, an organization that provides shelter to homeless families by partnering with religious organizations.
One new project funded this year was a $13,200 donation that went toward replacing cribs in child care centers throughout the community. Many child care centers were faced with the expensive task of buying cribs because of new safety regulations. The organization is also giving $7,000 to the Kansas Humanities Council and the Lumberyard Arts Center to host a Smithsonian traveling exhibit, “The Way We Worked.” The Baldwin City venue was one of six sites in Kansas picked to display the exhibit, which will arrive in spring 2013. The Douglas County Community Foundation was established in 2000 through a $4 million donation from Tensie Oldfather. “Since then, lots of local citizens have added to it, which is really nice. It has given us the flexibility over the years to react to community needs that have changed over time,” Hull said. — Reporter Christine Metz can be reached at 832-6352.

LAWRENCE ON THE RECORD
• Authorities arrested a 23-year-old Leavenworth County man Wednesday morning who was accused of hitting his father in the head with a handgun, Leavenworth County Undersheriff Ron Cranor said. The father, 48, reported the incident occurred at 5:30 a.m. Wednesday after an argument about an altercation the son was involved in earlier in Bonner Springs. The alleged battery occurred at a residence southwest of Basehor on 174th Street just south of U.S. Highway 24-40. Cranor said officers located the son and took him into custody on suspicion of aggravated battery. Prosecutors will review the case to decide on formal charges. • Douglas County Sheriff’s officers arrested a 26-year-old Lawrence man Wednesday morning in east Lawrence after he ran while being served with a warrant. Sgt. Steve Lewis, a sheriff’s spokesman, said the suspect, Darin Robert Curtiss, ran away in the 1800 block of Maple Drive while a deputy attempted to serve him with a warrant related to charges in a March 1 obstruction and habitual violator case. When the man ran, the deputy could not leave a child at the house unattended, so he asked for assistance. Another officer eventually arrested Curtiss about 11:45 a.m. in the 1500 block of Harper Street. He was booked on a new obstruction charge and given notice to appear in court March 21, according to jail records. Curtiss posted $2,500 bond in the old case and $750 in the new one. • A 30-year-old Lawrence man reported someone stole his $6,000 1983 Chevrolet pickup truck that included a red plow while burglarizing a garage in the 2400 block of West 31st Street. The theft occurred between 5 p.m. Feb. 28 and 8 a.m. March 2, according to a police report.

Lawrence woman pleads guilty in Mo. murder By George Diepenbrock firstname.lastname@example.org

LAW ENFORCEMENT REPORT
Thursday, March 8, 2012
A Lawrence woman pleaded guilty last week and received a 50-year prison sentence for planning the 2009 murder of her former boyfriend in southern Missouri. Annette Cross, 32, was arrested in Lawrence on a warrant in September 2009 and charged with first-degree murder and other charges in the death of her former boyfriend, Andrew Day, 37. Prosecutors in Howell County, Mo., accused Cross of driving her brother, Dale Cross, of Hannibal, Mo., to Day’s home outside Mountain View, Mo., where Dale Cross shot him. They then burned down the residence, and investigators found Day’s body inside. “It was her plan. It was her motive to kill him, and she dragged the other three into it,” said Rizwan Ahad, an assistant Howell County prosecuting attorney. “She and her brother drove to Mountain Valley to kill him.” The Crosses’ mother,
Joann Cross, 55, and Dale Cross’ fiancee, Kristin Smith, 22, both of Hannibal, are serving 11-year and 10-year prison sentences, respectively, after they pleaded to conspiracy for their involvement in buying the gun, Ahad said. Annette Cross pleaded guilty Friday to seconddegree murder, armed criminal action and second-degree arson. A judge sentenced her to serve consecutive 25-year sentences on the murder and armed criminal action counts. She also will concurrently serve seven years in Missouri prison on the arson charge. Ahad said prosecutors made the offer to Annette Cross for the pleas and sentences to match the sentence Dale Cross received about a month ago. A jury convicted him last year of the same three charges. Ahad said Annette Cross is expected to be transferred to custody of the Missouri Department of Corrections soon. — Reporter George Diepenbrock can be reached at 832-7144.
Drug charges dismissed against man Douglas County prosecutors have dismissed drug charges against a 32-yearold Lawrence man. Charges of possession with intent to distribute marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and distributing or possessing marijuana as a dealer without a drug tax stamp against James F. Auten were dropped Tuesday. District Attorney Charles Branson said prosecutors dismissed the charges because they now believe there is insufficient evidence to prove Auten intended to possess the marijuana on June 29. They could refile charges later because the case
was dismissed without prejudice. Auten was listed as a Kansas University student at the time of his January arrest. He has been on parole since October 2010 after he was sentenced in 2006 to serve a 65-month prison sentence for entering a plea to aggravated sexual battery, aggravated battery and aggravated assault charges. In that case a female acquaintance alleged he raped her, stole her phone and held her in a bedroom at knifepoint. He also had a case dismissed around the same time after he was accused of calling in a bomb threat at The Granada, 1020 Mass.

A real nail-biter
Bipartisan group urges governor to slow down on Medicaid changes By Scott Rothschild email@example.com
TOPEKA — A group of veteran legislators on Wednesday crossed political and ideological lines to urge Gov. Sam Brownback to slow down his push to privatize Medicaid. But the Brownback administration rejected the plea. “It would be a costly mistake to postpone making these critical improvements to our system,” said Colyer Lt. Gov. Jeff Colyer. Sen. Dick Kelsey, RGoddard, disagreed. “Medicaid is a massive and complex issue. By rushing through the implementation process, the livelihood of more than 380,000 Kansans who rely on Medicaid services will be threatened,” Kelsey said.
Delaying implementation Kelsey was joined by other Republicans and Democrats in support of a resolution to delay implementation of the Medicaid overhaul from January to July 1, 2013. The six-month delay will give legislators another legislative session to analyze the plan to ensure that providers meet the needs of Medicaid recipients “without causing interruptions or delays in services,” Kelsey said. Brownback, a Republican, has proposed converting the $2.8 billion federally and state-funded
program to a managed care system handled by private insurance companies. Brownback has said the new system, which will be called KanCare, will have incentives to reduce costs and improve the health of those treated. The bipartisan group of legislators said other states, in turning over Medicaid to managed care companies, have experienced major problems, such as providing late payments to health care providers and conflicts over what services and medications are covered. They also said more alarms were raised in Kansas when Blue Cross Blue Shield of Kansas, the state’s largest insurance company, declined to bid on the KanCare contract. Blue Cross said the contract “would have required us to dramatically change our business model to serve new populations in different settings in less than a year.” Twenty-two of the Senate’s 40 members have signed on to the resolution seeking a delay, while about 40 of the 125-member House, or less than one-third, have signed on. Rep. Jerry Henry, DCummings, said more House members will sign up in the coming days.
‘A lot of issues’ Henry said he was concerned how the proposed system would affect rural Kansas, nursing homes and pharmacies. “There are a lot of issues that need to be addressed before this can happen,” he said. Another major issue is including contracts for people with developmen-
tal disabilities. Advocates say the long-term supports needed for people with developmental disabilities don’t fit with a private program to manage health care costs. And they said the governor’s plan doesn’t address the nearly 5,000 people with developmental disabilities on a waiting list to receive assistance in their homes. The resolution also states that a six-month delay would give policymakers time to determine how any U.S. Supreme Court ruling on the Patient Protection and Affordable Health Care Act would impact the implementation of KanCare. But Colyer, Brownback’s point man on Medicaid, said the administration is drawing from the best examples from other states and will be able to avoid problems experienced elsewhere. “We have undertaken this reform slowly but surely,” Colyer said. “Delaying KanCare will only guarantee continued cost increases, put providers at risk of rate cuts, and threaten the quality of care being provided to vulnerable Kansans. The status quo is not serving us well, and delay will not improve the health of anyone,” he added. Colyer, who is a physician, said he will soon announce a KanCare advisory panel whose members will represent mental health, substance abuse, disabilities, doctors, hospitals, pharmacists, seniors, tribal organizations, family members, legislators and consumers. — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.
KU chancellor: Hundreds could be affected by remedial classes proposal By Scott Rothschild firstname.lastname@example.org
TOPEKA — Kansas University Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little said Wednesday that a proposal by House Speaker Mike O’Neal, R-Hutchinson, to stop state funding of remedial classes at state universities would probably affect a couple of hundred students at KU. Gray-Little said KU offers one remedial class, and it’s in math. “In general, students who are enrolled in that course don’t have a strong academic background,” she said. Her comment came in response to a question during testimony before the Senate Ways and Means higher education budget subcommittee. O’Neal has proposed legislation that would prohibit the use of tax dollars for remedial courses at state universities and cut in half the allowed number of students who are admitted but don’t meet minimum admission standards.
O’Neal has said that students who require remedial course or fall below minimum Gray-Little a d m i s sion standards would be better served going to a community college than risk failing at a regents school. In other testimony to the committee, Gray-Little said KU wants to increase the first-to-second year retention rate of students from 79 percent to 90 percent. She said she wants at least 70 percent of freshmen to have graduated within six years. That rate is now 61 percent. Gray-Little and KU Engineering Dean Stuart Bell told legislators that the recent approval of funds from the Legislature and Gov. Sam Brownback for engineering was already paying off. KU’s engineering department saw a 43 percent increase in admissions, they said.
“Young people are saying there is a signal coming from the state,” Bell said. Last year, Brownback signed into law a measure that allows KU, Kansas State and Wichita State each to receive $3.5 million annually from state gambling revenues. The funds, which must be matched by the schools, will be used to beef up engineering programs. Gray-Little said 106 employers came to KU recently to recruit engineers, which was up from 64 employers last year. Gray-Little also voiced support for several other recommendations from Brownback. Those include $3 million in additional funding to recruit world-class professors; a $1.8 million increase for additional student loans at the KU Medical Center; and continuance of the $5 million annual appropriation for the KU Cancer Center. — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.
Va. governor signs ultrasound bill By Bob Lewis Associated Press
RICHMOND, VA. — Abdominal ultrasounds for women seeking abortions in Virginia will become mandatory under a bill signed into law Wednesday by the state’s Republican governor, who had faced a national uproar when earlier versions of the measure had sought to make the exams medically invasive. The law conservative Gov. Bob McDonnell signed requires all Virginia abortion providers to comply starting July 1 or pay a $2,500 fine for each violation. Patients living within 100 miles of the
clinic where the abortion is performed must wait 24 hours after the ultrasound examination before having an abortion. Victims of rape or incest who reported the attacks to police are exempt. Women must be offered the chance to view the ultrasound images but can’t be forced to see them. The measure initially had sought to mandate a vaginally invasive form of an ultrasound, triggering a national uproar that resounded across political talk shows and TV comedy shows. A target of national political columnists, the original measure also was lampooned on “Saturday Night Live” and “The Daily
Show with Jon Stewart.” At issue in the measure promoted by anti-abortion lawmakers was an initial proposal requiring women seeking an abortion to undergo a transvaginal sonogram, in which a wand is inserted in the vagina to yield an image of the fetus. The procedure differs from an abdominal sonogram, in which a wand is rubbed over a woman’s belly. Supporters say the law ensures women are fully informed about the gestational age of their fetuses as they decide whether to abort them. Seven states have laws mandating some form of pre-abortion ultrasound exam.

Photographer discusses work documenting King James Bible By Meagan Thomas email@example.com
Growing up as a loner kid on a farm, Lindsborg resident Jim Richardson had many hobbies. From telescopes to microscopes, he dabbled with science, but his interest in photography is what led him to his career path. “I well remember the day that my picture won blue ribbon at the North Central Kansas State Fair and (received) special praise for framing,” Richardson said. “(The judge) obviously knew a lot about photography as she went on and judged the tomatoes and the quilts.” That judge may not have been an expert, but she was right about one thing: Richardson had a photographer’s eye. Aside from owning Small World Gallery (127 N. Main St., Lindsborg), which Richardson and his wife opened in 2002, he works as a freelance photographer, with one of his prime clients being National Geographic Magazine. One of his more recent projects brought national attention to Baker University, as he photographed the “He” version of the King James Bible, which is a part of Baker’s Quayle Bible Collection. The
I was in love with the idea of looking for images that somehow resonated the pace and the rhythm of the words of the (King James Bible).” — Jim Richardson photographs appeared on the cover of the December 2011 issue of National Geographic. In a presentation at Baker University this week, Richardson related his journey of telling the tale of the 400-year-old King James Bible through pictures. “I was in love with the idea of looking for images that somehow resonated the pace and the rhythm of the words of the (King James Bible),” Richardson said. The author of the article was Adam Nicolson, who came to Richardson with the idea to write a story about the 400th anniversary of the Bible. Richardson said in order to write the article, they would have to make the story cultural and historical and tell about the influence of the King James Bible on our language and how it still was present in
today’s society. Together, the two traveled the world to find people and societies whose principles and beliefs were based on the King James Bible. Their search took them on a journey that included trips to England, Jamaica and New Mexico, where Richardson looked for images to capture the attention of readers and the meaning of the Bible. “One of the main jobs of those pictures on those pages is to make people stop — who thought they didn’t care about this thing at all,” Richardson said. One of the more difficult legs of the journey was to photograph the Bobo Shanti sect of Rastafarians in Kingston, Jamaica. Getting permission to photograph the Bobo Shanti required seven hours of negotiations before the council gave him the OK to take pictures. The entire process took Nicolson and Richardson a year. Richardson said his work with Nicolson was one of his favorite projects he’s done. His opinion on life for anyone interested in working as a photographer is simple. “You’re crazy to want to be a photographer but have at it,” Richardson said.

Talk of U.S. military in Syria divides Congress By Donna Cassata Associated Press
WASHINGTON — Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and the nation’s top military leader delivered a sober assessment Wednesday of Syria’s sophisticated air defenses and its extensive stockpile of chemical weapons in a strategic reality check to the demand for U.S. military action to end President Bashar Assad’s deadly crackdown on his people. President Barack Obama’s 2008 rival, Republican Sen. John McCain, has called for the president to launch airstrikes against Assad to force him from power and end the bloodshed. The United Nations estimates that more than 7,500 Syrians have been killed, with hundreds more
fleeing to neighboring nations to avoid the slaughter. A r m y Gen. Martin Dempsey, the chair- Panetta man of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told the Senate Armed Services Committee that Obama has asked the Pentagon for a preliminary review of military options, such as enforcement of a no-fly zone and humanitarian airlifts. He insisted that the military would be ready if the commander-in-chief made the request. “What are the potential missions, what is the enemy order of battle, what are the enemy’s capabilities or potential enemies? What are the troops we
have available, and how much time. So, mission, enemy, terrain, troops and time. That’s a commander’s estimate,” Dempsey said of the initial step. Panetta said they are waiting on Obama before doing more detailed contingency planning. In Congress, only McCain’s closest Senate colleagues have echoed his plea. War-weary Republicans and Democrats have expressed serious reservations about U.S. military involvement in Syria after more than a decade of war in Iraq and Afghanistan, the divisive political fight last summer over U.S. intervention in Libya, and the possibility of an Israeli attack on Iran. House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, said this week that the situation in
Syria is too muddled and military action would be premature, an opinion shared by many House Republicans who challenged Obama last year for dispatching the military to protect Libyans battling to overthrow Moammar Gadhafi. Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney also said this week that he wasn’t prepared to support military action against Syria. Panetta summed up the situation in stark terms. “The fundamental issue that is before us is whether or not the United States will go in and act unilaterally in that part of the world and engage in another war in the Muslim world unilaterally. Or whether or not we will work with others in determining what action we take,” Panetta said.
Large solar storm racing toward Earth By Seth Borenstein Associated Press
WASHINGTON — Earth’s magnetic field is about to be shaken like a snow globe by the largest solar storm in five years. After hurtling through space for a day and a half, a massive cloud of charged particles is due to arrive early today and could disrupt utility grids, airline flights, satellite networks and GPS services, especially in northern areas. But the same blast could also paint colorful auroras farther from the poles than normal. Scientists say the storm, which started with a massive solar flare earlier in the week, is growing as it races outward from the sun, expanding like a giant soap bubble. When it strikes early today, the particles will be moving at 4 million mph. “It’s hitting us right in

BUSINESS AT A GLANCE
Apple gave the new iPad a bunch of new features but no new name. When it goes on sale next week, it will be “the iPad” or perhaps “the new iPad.” The new iPad unveiled Wednesday comes with improvements that may not be readily apparent to the casual observer. It has a sharper screen, driven by a faster processing chip that acts as the “brains” of the device. The new features mean the tablet computer will be slightly thicker and heavier than the iPad 2 because it needs a larger battery to power the highresolution screen.
the nose,” said Joe Kunches, a scientist for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration in Boulder, Colo. Astronomers say the sun has been relatively quiet for some time. And this storm, while strong, may seem fiercer because Earth has been lulled by several years of weak solar activity. The storm is part of the sun’s normal 11-year cycle, which is supposed to reach peak storminess next year. Solar storms don’t harm people, but they do disrupt technology. And during the last peak around 2002, experts learned that GPS was vulnerable to solar outbursts. Because new technology has flourished since then, scientists could discover that some new systems are also at risk, said Jeffrey Hughes, director of the Center for Integrat-
Hiring grows as companies hit limits with workers
By Martin Crutsinger Associated Press
WASHINGTON — U.S. companies will have to keep hiring steadily to meet their customers’ rising demand. That’s the message that emerged from a report Wednesday that employers are finding it harder to squeeze more output from their existing staff. It also helps explain why ADP, a payroll provider, estimated Wednesday that companies added 216,000 workers last month. Those findings reinforced confidence that 2012 will mark a turning point for the long-suffering job market and the economy. Applications for unemployment benefits have tumbled. Consumer confidence is at its highest point in a year. And the stock market has been on a tear since the year began. Feeding on themselves, those trends tend to fuel further economic growth. The brighter signs come two days before the government will issue the February employment report. It’s expected to show a third straight month of strong hiring. Business executives are sensing the shift. A survey released Wednesday by Duke University’s Fuqua
School of Business found that confidence among U.S. chief financial officers has risen to its highest point in a year. As a result, the survey found that companies expect to increase hiring for full-time jobs by 2.1 percent over the next year, up from 1.5 percent in a survey in December. “This rebound is encouraging because increases in chief financial officer optimism have historically preceded improvements in the overall economy,” said John Graham, a finance professor who directed the survey. The survey was released the same day that the government reported a paltry gain in worker productivity at the end of last year. The 0.9 percent annualized increase was half the growth rate from the July-September quarter. Similarly, for the year, U.S. worker productivity grew at its slowest pace in nearly a quarter of century. Productivity measures output per hour of work. Slower productivity can squeeze corporate profits. But it can lead to more jobs if it shows that companies can’t derive more production from their workers. That often means they must hire to meet customer demand.

Romney encourages rivals to fold ———
Still, fellow GOP presidential candidates vow to continue on By David Espo Associated Press
WASHINGTON — His delegate lead growing, Mitt Romney gently nudged his Republican opponents toward the sidelines on Wednesday and said he was on track to wrap up the presidential nomination before the party convention next summer. Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich paid him no mind, vowing to fight on in a campaign marked by persistent ideological divisions. If anything, the political maneuvering intensified as the marathon pointed toward contests in five states over the next week. Romney’s campaign purchased television advertising time in Alabama according to campaign sources, as it pursued a breakthrough in the party’s Southern base. A Santorum ally urged Gingrich to abandon the race. In response, the former House speaker said he would consider it — if he thought Santorum was sure to beat Romney and then President Barack Obama. “I don’t,” he added. And when Santorum was informed that an aide to Romney had said it would take an act of God for any other candidate to amass a majority of convention delegates, Santorum responded heatedly. “What won’t they resort to, to try to bully their way through this race?” he said in Lenexa, Kan. “If the governor now thinks he’s now ordained by God to win, then let’s just have it out.” One day after Super Tuesday, Romney’s cam-

And they were hurting the party by continuing to try, it suggested. “As Gov. Romney’s opponents attempt to ignore the basic principles of math, the only person’s odds of winning they are increasing are President Barack Obama’s,” it said. Romney didn’t go that far in an interview, and he stopped short of a flat prediction that he would achieve his goal of a preconvention delegate majority. “We think that will get done before the convention, but one thing I can tell you for sure is there’s not going to be some brokered convention where some new person comes in and becomes the nominee,” he said on CNBC’s “Squawk Box.” ‘‘It’s going to be one of the four people that are still running.” After Super Tuesday, Romney has 419 delegates overall, more than his three rivals combined.

Limbaugh just part of broader trend
Dangerous crossing Officials must consider ways to make a Douglas County railroad crossing safer before another tragic accident occurs.
oo often, it’s tragedy that leads to action, as in the case of 22-year-old Kyle Snyder, who died last year when his truck slid down an icy hill on a gravel road northwest of Lawrence and into a railroad crossing. A BNSF train traveling more than 50 mph smashed into the truck, killing Snyder. His parents, Tom and Laury Snyder, are now enlisting the help of the Douglas County Commission and Perry-Lecompton School Superintendent Dennis Yoder to ask the state for help to make the dangerous railroad crossing on East 950 Road safer. Last month, the Douglas County Commission signed a resolution asking for state money to install a crossing signal, which could cost between $150,000 and $250,000. The Snyders want flashing lights installed at the crossing, which is at the foot of a large hill. The lights could alert motorists when a train is passing. From the north, the railroad tracks and crossing are clearly visible. However, coming from the south, the crossing is at the bottom of a steep hill. Warning signs are a couple of hundred yards away on a flat stretch just ahead of the downward slope. From that point, the railroad tracks are obscured by trees. It’s not until a driver is nearly at the crossing that there is a long view of the tracks. If a signal were installed, drivers could tell whether a train was coming at the flat part of the hill and wait for it to pass before descending to the crossing. Yoder is involved because a 65-passenger Perry-Lecompton school bus regularly passes over the railroad crossing. “It’s hard to see an oncoming train until you are almost to the tracks,” Yoder said. The Kansas Department of Transportation reports fewer than 40 vehicles a day go through the crossing. Only five trains pass through daily. This low traffic doesn’t qualify the crossing for federal funds, and KDOT says crossings with more traffic get higher priority. State money may not be a viable option either. The state budgets only enough money for 1.5 crossings a year. The last and most drastic option is closing the crossing or reducing the grade of the road, officials say. Closing the crossing would add time and distance to the Perry-Lecompton bus routes, Yoder said. There are only three roads crossing the railroad tracks between Lake View Lake and Lecompton; the closest one from East 950 Road is a mile west. It seems unlikely officials will decide to close the crossing. Making it safer will require some tough decisions and probably some public funding. Officials shouldn’t wait for another tragic accident, especially one involving a school bus, to address this situation.

If you think Rush Limbaugh is fatally wounded, think again. By way of explanation, let me tell you how a certain subset of my readers will react to this column. Experience dictates that once I’ve taken my last swipe at their dear leader, Limbaugh’s followers will well ... rush to fire off angry emails in his defense. They will do this though there is no defense for what he did on
Leonard Pitts Jr.
The problem is not a conservative talk show host, but conservatism itself as presently construed.” his program last week: calling Georgetown University law student Sandra Fluke a “prostitute” and a “slut” after she testified in support of requiring health insurers to pay for women’s contraception. His followers will declare, through some arcane “logic” peculiar to true believers, that “Rush” — it’s always “Rush,” as if they and the multimillionaire talk-show host were in the same bowling league — didn’t say what I thought he said, or didn’t mean what I thought he meant. Point being, he reportedly reaches 15 million people a week who worship him robotically and sycophantically. So it is a fact of life that the advertisers he’s lost as a result of his diarrheic mouth — at least 10 at last count — will soon return, or be replaced.
Which is not to say Limbaugh was not stung by the defections. To the contrary, after several days of doubling down on his coarseness — at one point suggesting women whose contraception is paid for by insurance post sex videos online — he abruptly reversed himself as the advertiser revolt grew. “I sincerely apologize to Ms. Fluke for the insulting word choice,” he said in a statement. The timing suggests he was sincere only in his concern for lost revenue. Two days later, Limbaugh elaborated on the air, saying that in fighting those dreaded liberals, “I became like them against my own instincts, against my own knowledge, against everything I know to be right and wrong, I descended to their level when I used those two words to describe Sandra Fluke.” So even when it’s his fault, it’s not his fault. The liberals made him do it. But repugnant as he is, last week’s attack says less about Limbaugh than about the social and political atmosphere he
has come to symbolize. “Severely conservative,” said Mitt Romney some weeks ago in self-description. He’d been driven to Freudian candor by the need to “outconservative” his opponents and thus, spoke more truly than he perhaps intended. So “severe” are conservatives now that Ronald Reagan would not know them. Nor, given that he raised taxes and was not above compromising with opponents, would they know him. That’s because what now passes for conservatism is less an ideology than an excuse for ideological rigidity, extreme language, shameless (indeed, proud) ignorance and situational ethics wherein the only thing that matters is victory and any tactic — fear, misogyny, bigotry, lies — is acceptable so long as it advances that goal. Spare me the false moral equivalence of noting that liberals are sometimes guilty of the same crimes. Duh. Of course they are. But the frequency and intensity on the left do not begin to compare with that of the right.

Education focus To the editor: Recently, there was an article stating perhaps the athletic students should get $2,000 to help them with expenses. Well, my answer to this is “yes” — if they go four years and graduate, but then I go one further. Any student that walks down the hill to get a diploma should get a bonus of $2,000 for the many hours they devoted to education. Then again, I would say that all coaches should get the same salary as a chairman of any department, as all are teachers and should be treated equally. Coaches have people who work for them; department chairmen have people who work for them, and all are educators. Either way you look at it, they are all educators, and how can a university make such a distinction between the two? I watched basketball in Hoch Auditorium and even in Allen Fieldhouse, when the players showed finesse and it was not grab, run, dunk and then pull your shirt half off to show how great you think you are. There are many ex-KU players who loved the game and showed it by their finesse and never beating themselves on the back. They smiled and just felt they did a good job and we appreciated that. This is not just my feeling about sport; it seems to be more of a general feeling that sports have gone so far away from education that it

KU-MU could scramble seeding If the Kansas basketball team wins the Big 12 tournament title Saturday in the Sprint Center, it earns its fifth NCAA Tournament No. 1 seed in six years, and nothing is left to chance. But what if Kansas doesn’t win it? More specifically, what if Missouri defeats the Jayhawks in the title game? Does that mean the Tigers get a No. 1 seed and Kansas a No. 2? That’s a tough call, a scenario that could leave supporters on whichever side of the Border War that doesn’t get a top seed feeling cheated. Kentucky and Syracuse will get two of the top seeds, and the next two likely will go to the team with the top resume from the ACC and the Big 12, although if one of the Big Ten’s regular-season tri-champions wins the conference tourney, it looms as a threat to take the last top seed. In an attempt to gain some insight as to how the selection committee would handle the Kansas/Missouri close call in the event the Tigers defeat KU in the conference tourney final, I hopped on conference calls to put the question before committee chairman Jeff Hathaway and then ESPN bracketologist Joe Lunardi. Before hearing that question, Hathaway, former UConn athletic director who succeeded former Kansas AD Lew Perkins in that job, was asked about how much weight the RPI carries. “I think there’s a lot of criteria,” Hathaway said. “And, unfortunately, I think a lot of people go immediately to RPI or go to one or two criteria, when there really is a litany of criteria that we look at.” Such as? “Head-to-head competition, common opponents, road records. As we all know, any coach in any league will tell you it’s difficult to win on the road. Overall strength of schedule. Obviously, we look at competition against top-quality teams. And we all know what the bottom-line premise has been of the committee over the past years, and that is: Who did you play? Where did you play them? And how did you do?” So what would the committee do if Missouri defeated Kansas in the title game? “We would look at Kansas, and we would look at Missouri, and we would look at those other handful of teams that we believe are due consideration for the first line and the second line, and we would compare them all with each other,” Hathaway said. “So it goes back to what I alluded to, and that is head-to-head competition is a factor that’s considered. Common opponents is a factor. Right down the list. We’ll look at the full body of work. One game … one game is not going to determine, be the sole determinant for where they’re going to be seeded.” I asked Lunardi who would be higher on the S-curve if Missouri won a close title game against Kansas. Same question if the Tigers won by double digits.

KANSAS CITY, MO. — Kansas University’s basketball players on Wednesday returned to the scene of their depressing mid-December loss to mid-major Davidson. The Jayhawks followed a rigorous practice in Allen Fieldhouse with a 35-minute shootaround in Sprint Center, site of today’s 2 p.m. Big 12 tournament quarterfinal

between KU (26-5) and Texas A&M (14-17). “To tell you the truth, I’d not thought about that,” KU junior forward Travis Releford said of the Big 12 tournament being held in the same arena as the 80-74 Davidson downer. “It’s a whole different ballgame, whole different team. We come in with a different mind-set.” Davidson hit 11 of 33 threepointers in handing KU its third loss of the nonconfer-
ence season against seven victories. Since that day, the Jayhawks have rattled off 19 wins in 21 games, won their eighth-straight conference regular-season title and positioned themselves for a possible No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament. Overall, KU is 13-3 overall in Sprint Center, claiming postseason tourney titles in the downtown K.C. arena in 2008, ’10 and ’11.

“I think it’s another chance for us to get better, to gain momentum going into the NCAA Tournament,” Releford said. “The conference tournament is important to us.

KU women relish opportunity By Matt Tait email@example.com
KANSAS CITY, MO. — There are two ways of looking at the Kansas University women’s basketball team’s position as the No. 6 seed in this week’s Big 12 tournament, which opened Wednesday and continues today at Municipal Auditorium. In the eyes of some, the
Jayhawks, who sit precariously on the bubble for next week’s NCAA Tournament, could have benefited from the chance to pick up an extra victory against a lowerseeded team during Wednesday’s opening round. Don’t put KU coach Bonnie Henrickson in that camp. “I wouldn’t say I’d prefer that,” she said. “I wouldn’t have preferred to lose (Sun-
day at OU) for that to happen.” By topping the Sooners last weekend in Norman, Okla., Henrickson’s Jayhawks earned the No. 6 seed and a first-round bye. Their reward? A date with No. 3 seed Texas A&M at 7:30 tonight at Municipal Auditorium. The Aggies enter the tourney ranked 22nd in the country.
Then again, the opportunity to take on the Aggies presents the Jayhawks (1911 overall, 8-10 Big 12) with their best shot at making one final statement to the tournament selection committee. That’s the way Henrickson prefers to view it. “It’s (a chance to get win) No. 20, it’s a quality Please see KU WOMEN, page 3B

SEABURY SENIOR THOMAS DIAZ (12) PUTS UP A SHOT against Ashland’s Grant Meininger. Ashland won, 51-50, Please see KEEGAN, page 3B Wednesday in Emporia.
EMPORIA — Seabury Academy’s boys basketball team arrived at White Auditorium Friday afternoon with visions of three wins and a Class 1A Division I state championship. At the state tournament, though, every team has the same three-day agenda. With a 51-50 first-round defeat of the Seahawks, top-seeded Ashland remained undefeated and kept its dream season alive. Seabury (13-11) and its three multi-talented, long and athletic swingmen — senior Georgi Funtarov, sophomore Khadre Lane and senior Thomas Diaz — couldn’t overcome the Blue Jays’ senior trio of Jay Luerman (19 points, 11 rebounds), Giles Fox (14 points) and Chance Stebens (11 points). While Funtarov led all scorers with 22 points and
made a game-best four three-pointers, the Ashland seniors stole the show in the second half. Seabury had built an 11-point lead in the third quarter when Luerman, Fox and Stebens, who don’t know what it feels like to lose as seniors, decided they weren’t interested in experiencing defeat for the first time this season. Ashland (24-0) benefited from Luerman’s ability to slash to the paint, Fox’s brute strength inside and Stebens’ ability to hit key second-half three-pointers. “The better basketball team won it,” Seahawks coach Ashley Battles said. “The team with better players, with guys that’ll move on and do probably bigger, better things didn’t win. But those were really good basketball players — small, western Kansas kids that were willing to do whatever it took.” Seabury had its chances
late. After Seahawks senior guard Garrett Gillett hit two free throws with 1:50 remaining, AHS led 50-45. Ashland had a turnover, and Stebens missed the front end of a one-and-one in the following minute. Then, on one possession, the Seahawks missed three straight shots, grabbing the offensive rebound each time, before Lane finally converted inside and drew a foul with 44 seconds left. AHS led 50-47 after Lane missed his free throw. Forced to foul, the Seahawks put Luerman at the line, and he missed his bonus try with 40 seconds on the clock. Following a timeout by Battles, Ashland denied Funtarov a touch, and senior forward Jesse May hoisted a three-pointer from the left wing that fell short. Leurman went back to the foul line and left the door Please see SEABURY, page 3B

â€œWe didnâ€™t deserve, truthfully, to be in the football competition in those years. But itâ€™s hard to get kicked out,â€?

SURPRISE, ARIZ. (AP) â€” Jeff Samardzija made a strong opening bid for a spot in the Cubs rotation. He allowed one hit in three scoreless innings Wednesday, and the Chicago Cubs defeated the Kansas City Royals, 6-4. Cubs manager Dale Sveum says Samardzija appears to be on a mission. â€œHeâ€™s 100 percent correct,â€? said Samardzija, a standout receiver at Notre Dame who chose baseball over the NFL. â€œI hold a lot of stuff in. I donâ€™t say too much stuff. I have a big chip on my shoulder, especially the older I get and slowly see my football skills diminishing. Youâ€™ve got to understand Iâ€™ve got to start pitching good.â€? Samardzija, who has made only five starts in the majors, is trying to earn one of two vacancies in the Cubsâ€™ rotation after going 8-4 with a 2.97 earned-run average in 75 relief appearances last year. He had some ugly ERAs during brief appearances in the majors in 2009 and 2010 before a breakthrough 2011, when he went 8-4 with a 2.97 ERA in 75 relief appearances. â€œThat topic has been a roller coaster,â€? he said. â€œThere are times I donâ€™t mind it at all. There are times it really cuts to me. I feel like I made that decision based on the right reason, from my heart thatâ€™s what I wanted to do was play baseball. I never felt I had to defend myself. The truth is youâ€™ve got to prove to them that itâ€™s the right reason and thatâ€™s what Iâ€™m trying to do. â€œIâ€™m trying to be the Cubs pitcher and not the former Notre Dame football player.â€? Left-hander Jonathan Sanchez, acquired by the Royals from San Francisco in an offseason trade, got little help from his fielders. The Cubs took advantage of three errors, two by third baseman Mike Moustakas, to score four runs in the first off Sanchez. The inning included RBI singles by Bryan LaHair, Jae-Hoon Ha and Darwin Barney. Eric Hosmer and Yuniesky Betancourt had run-producing doubles for the Royals, while Max Ramirez drove in two runs with a ninth inning single. The Cubs had 15 hits. Starlin Castro, Reed Johnson and LaHair each contributed two hits.

QUARTERBACK PEYTON MANNING, LEFT, SPEAKS DURING A NEWS CONFERENCE as Colts owner Jim Irsay listens Wednesday in Indianapolis. The Colts announced they were releasing Manning.
Bidding begins for ex-Colts QB Manning INDIANAPOLIS â€” Sent packing by his only NFL team, one he transformed from afterthought to Super Bowl champion, Peyton Manning said goodbye to the Indianapolis Colts with a shaky voice and tear-filled eyes, then got ready to find a new place to play quarterback. At a podium alongside owner Jim Irsay, who cut the injured star Wednesday rather than pay a whopping $28 million bonus due this week, Manning was by turns wistful, nostalgic â€” he got choked up while praising the Coltsâ€™ equipment managers â€” and forward-looking. The only four-time MVP in NFL history now figures to become as coveted a free agent as the league has ever seen, assuming he can assuage any lingering concerns about the series of neck operations that forced him to miss all of 2011. Arizona, Miami, Seattle, Tennessee, Washington and the New York Jets all have been rumored as possible destinations; Manningâ€™s former offensive coordinator in Indianapolis, Tom Moore, worked for the Jets as a consultant last season. â€œNobody loves their job more than I do. Nobody loves playing quarterback more than I do. I still want to play. But there is no other team I wanted to play for,â€? said Manning, who turns 36 this month. Still, he acknowledged: â€œWe all know that nothing lasts forever. Times change, circumstances change, and thatâ€™s the reality of playing in the NFL.â€? Another reality: Manning should command plenty of offers on the open market. Itâ€™s not very often that teams get a crack at a QB whoâ€™s thrown for more than 50,000 yards and nearly 400 touchdowns, been picked for 11 Pro Bowls, and been a Super Bowl MVP. Manningâ€™s importance to the Coltsâ€™ success was never more apparent than last season, when their record plummeted to 2-14 without him. â€œI have no idea who wants me, what team wants me, how this process works,â€? Manning told a group of reporters in South Florida, where he has a home and flew after the news conference. â€œI donâ€™t know if itâ€™s like college recruiting where you go take visits. I mean, this is all so new to me.â€? Reports of other clubsâ€™ interest began emerging awhile back, and theyâ€™ll only intensify now. Because he was released and went on the
waiver wire Wednesday, Manning is allowed to negotiate and sign with any club immediately; he does not need to wait until the free-agent period that begins next Tuesday and said his agent already was taking calls.
NFLPA to probe bounties WASHINGTON â€” The NFL Players Association will do its own investigation of the New Orleans Saintsâ€™ bounty system and asked the league to help set up interviews with the teamâ€™s coaches and front-office staff. In a statement released Wednesday, the union vowed to â€œvigorously protect the rights of all players.â€?

Michigan violations possible ANN ARBOR, MICH. â€” Michiganâ€™s football program might have violated a secondary NCAA rule. Spokesman Justin Dickens confirmed Wednesday that the schoolâ€™s compliance department has been notified a rule may have been broken by receiver Roy Roundtree and linebacker Kenny Demens. The two posted messages on their Twitter accounts to congratulate a recruit. Roundtree and Demens tweeted to linebacker Mike McCray of Trotwood-Madison High School in Ohio after the highly touted prospect decided to play for the Wolverines. NCAA rules prohibit messages being sent to recruits through social media from accounts affiliated with someone from the school.
Arizona guard suspended LOS ANGELES â€” Arizona point guard Josiah Turner has been suspended indefinitely for violating team rules, the second time this season the freshman has been suspended. The Wildcats open the Pac-12 tournament today after having a bye in the first round. Turner, who averaged 6.8 points in 29 games, did not accompany the team to the tournament.

Texas A&M vs. Kansas
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1B
Oklahoma, 62-53, in Wednesday’s first-round game. KU beat the Aggies, 64-54, on Jan. 23 in Allen Fieldhouse and 66-58 on Feb. 22 in College Station, Texas. Elijah Johnson scored 21 points in the road victory on a night Thomas Robinson had just 10 points and 13 boards. Khris Middleton countered with 23 for the Aggies. In the first game, Robinson scored 18 points and grabbed 10 rebounds, while Tyshawn Taylor contributed 17 points for KU. Elston Turner had 24 for the Aggies. “A&M played well against us twice,” Self said. “A&M is finally healthy, and that adds to the equation. They play more like us, primarily all man defense. They run some different sets but certainly things our guys will remember because we played them a couple of weeks ago.” Today’s winner meets the winner of today’s Kansas State-Baylor game at 6:30 p.m. Friday. The final is 5 p.m. Saturday. “We won the league, and the league is more important than the postseason tournament. I don’t care what anybody says. We are going to try to validate our championship. We are going to try to win it,” Self said. “I mean, if you play, you might as well try to win. There is no reason to play unless you play to win. “It will be hard to win three days in a row. We don’t have depth, and we’re
going to have to ride guys hard and play guys a lot of minutes if we are fortunate enough to advance. But it will be good for us. If we are fortunate enough to
advance, we play Baylor/ K-State. That’s a heck of a first two days.” Of course, it’s possible KU, which has won five of the past six conference
tourneys, could play Missouri in the final. The two teams split during the regular season. “We’re just looking forward to taking it game by game and winning it. That’s our main goal,” KU senior Conner Teahan said. “We want to be a one seed (in NCAAs). It’s not like that’s our sole purpose of anything, because we’re taking it one step at a time, but we know to get one step closer to that, we have to win this Big 12 tournament. Honestly, we want to play Missouri again. I would love to, but we’ll see how that works out.” Self said the players are well rested after getting a day off Sunday and having two consecutive days off each of the previous two weeks. He indicated Taylor has been sick this week and Releford has been “nickedup.” Releford said his left foot injury (stress reaction in January) has not been giving him any problems. Taylor and Releford practiced Wednesday. “We’re fine (healthwise),” Self said. Of the possibility of playing three games in three days, Releford said: “It’s not too difficult because we played every team twice. Preparing isn’t as hard as it will be in the NCAA Tournament, because we’ve seen these teams twice before.” “Playing three games in three days is rough. We definitely need to eat right and take care of our bodies,” KU junior Jeff Withey said. “Mentally, it is a lot also. We just have to be thinking that we are going in to win it, and it is going to be tough. But I think that we can do it.”

“I think if Missouri beats Kansas two out of three, they’re higher,” Lunardi said. Even though Kansas finished two games ahead of Missouri in the regular season? “It’s definitely a factor,” Lunardi said. “You know, that’s a big win. That’s a big win, and they would have a bigger win in the semis than Kansas would have.” He didn’t close the door on the possibility of KU’s No. 1 seed surviving a close loss. “I’ll be honest, I only look at it side-by-side after it happens, so it could be that you’re right,” he said. “It could be that Kansas stays ahead of Missouri if Missouri wins a close game, like the other two have been. If (the Tigers) beat them by double-digits in Kansas City, that’s got to count for something. Why play the game then?” Easy. To make money. It seems the best way to make the call, in order to preserve the value of the regular season would be to give Kansas the nod in the event of a close outcome and push Missouri ahead only in the event of a convincing title-game victory. Then again, it’s entirely possible Iowa State wins the Big 12 tournament title, even though it would have to go through Missouri and Kansas to do it.
against a high RPI and a ranked team on a neutral floor, so another great opportunity has arisen,” she said. In order to turn that opportunity into something more, Henrickson said her team had to understand how important each postseason possession could be. “We’ve gotta take care of the ball,” Henrickson said. In two games against A&M this season — both 11-point losses — the Jayhawks turned it over 23 and 20 times. Not only
did the turnovers lead to empty possessions for the Jayhawks, but they often led to easy layups for the Aggies as well. “There is no scout-team defense for that,” Henrickson said. “They’re gonna make those.” One other major difference for the Jayhawks this time around is that they’ll be playing without junior Carolyn Davis, an All-Big 12 first-team selection who was injured in mid-February and will miss the rest of the season. In upperclassmen Adaora Elonu (6-1 senior) and Kelsey Bone (6-4 junior), the Aggies (20-9, 11-7) enjoy an advantage in the post on most nights. With Davis out of the lineup, KU’s performance in the
paint on both ends of the floor will take on greater importance in a game the Jayhawks are treating as a do-or-die scenario. “I think we have to win this one,” senior Aishah Sutherland said. “It’s a real important game.” Added Henrickson: “Our mind-set is to go in there determined to beat Texas A&M and take control of our situation. We’ve done a lot of good things to build a résumé, but I think the most important thing is for us to go beat Texas A&M. And then if you’re gonna win one, you might as well win two.” Kansas has lost 10 straight to A&M overall, and the teams have never met in the Big 12 tournament.

open for Seabury once more, missing his only attempt of a one-and-one opportunity. Lane grabbed the defensive board and went the length of the floor, looking for contact on a layup. The off-balance attempt was off the mark, though, and Fox grabbed the rebound. He finally sealed the victory for AHS with a free throw at the six-second mark.

ahawks knew Ashland’s strengths coming into state, but they had trouble stopping them in the second half. With the excitement of the Blue Jays’ third-quarter run, the No. 1 seed had all the momentum.
A three-pointer by Lane, who finished with 11 points and eight rebounds, put Seabury up 39-28 in the third quarter. However, Ashland scored the next 16 points, with scores from Chance Stebens, Fox, Luerman and Austin Stebens. Lane said the Seahawks failed to execute in the second half of their season-ending loss, and that fueled Ashland’s gamechanging run. “You kind of have to expect it,” Lane said of the Blue Jays’ comeback. “They’re 23-0 for a reason. They’re not gonna just fold.” Battles said he was proud of his guys. “People villainize us because we do have some players,” he said. “At the end of the day, man, these are great kids.”
KU baseball falls to North Dakota By Matt Tait email@example.com
Kansas University baseball coach Ritch Price was in no mood to sugar coat Wednesday’s 12-9 loss to visiting North Dakota at Hoglund Ballpark. “There’s no doubt about it,” Price said. “That’s a devastating loss for us.” It wasn’t just that the Jayhawks (6-6) lost, it was the way it happened. After scoring multiple runs in the bottom of the first for the second straight day, it looked as if the Jayhawks might be
headed for an easy victory. Junior catcher Alex DeLeon ripped a three-run double in the first to give KU a 3-0 lead, but the lead was short-lived. In the top of the third, UND scored five runs on just two hits. “It seemed like one walk after another set the tone for their five-run inning,” Price said. “Way too many free passes allowed them to put up that crooked number.” KU pitchers walked four and hit one in the third inning. North Dakota (1-5) added two more in
the fourth and opened an 8-3 lead. The Jayhawks kept fighting. Freshman outfielder Connor McKay launched a solo home run in the bottom of the fourth to give KU life, and freshman Michael Suiter homered for the second day in a row in the fifth to pull KU within a run. “When you’re down in that big of a hole, you need someone to put a good swing on a ball for you to put up a crooked number,” Price said. “To have a freshman do it was a big momentum-builder.” McKay struck again in
the bottom of the seventh with an RBI single that scored Suiter, and Chris Manship followed with a bases-loaded walk that plated Jake Marasco. The tworun seventh gave KU the lead, but UND scored four in the top of the ninth off of KU closer Tanner Poppe, who was working his fourth game in five days for the first time in his career.

MU guard adds fuel to rivalry (Stewart, former MU coach) in him. There’s nothing wrong with that,” Self said after Wednesday’s short practice in Sprint Center. “Everybody loves and respects Norm, especially after Norm retired,” the coach added with a laugh. “That’s one thing that does kind of crack me up. There’s been so many things that have been said innocently that aren’t stories that people can take the ball and run with because they are leaving (for SEC). I’ve not followed what everybody is saying. That’s a pretty good quote by Kim.” Self said earlier in the week that “Kansas City is more of a K-State, KU town than it is a Missouri town, at least the way we see it.” On Wednesday, Self said: “I actually had people do some research. If you add K-State and KU alums that have graduated and alums that did not graduate but at least went to school there for a brief period of time, they’re not close,” he said of fans of the three schools that live in K.C. “I don’t know what I said that is even remotely controversial. I always thought controversial statements were things that could be taken one way or another. To me, if it’s fact, I don’t see what’s controversial.”

KANSAS CITY, MO. — Outspoken Missouri guard Kim English figures to hear some jeers from Kansas University fans if the rival teams advance to Saturday’s Big 12 tournament finals. Check out his comments in Wednesday’s Columbia Missourian that have made their way to various Internet message boards: “I respect Kansas basketball to the fullest. I respect their players. I respect their coaches big time. I just hate their fans,” English, a 6-6 senior from Baltimore, said. “Their fans kind of have a false sense of security about what Kansas basketball is. It’s not Kentucky. It’s not UCLA.” He sees it as KU has three national titles, not five. “If they want to count championships from 1922 and ’23, then that’s fine,” he told the paper, referring to Helms Foundation titles. English on Wednesday jokingly thanked KU and Kansas State fans for spending money in the state of Missouri while attending the 2012 Big 12 tournament. He also referred to K.C. as “our town.” KU coach Bill Self was not bothered by English’s comments. “He’s got a little Norm

Texas A&M 62, Oklahoma 53 KANSAS CITY, MO. — Texas A&M’s Big 12 basketball activity has been extended at least one day. Dash Harris and Khris Middleton drilled key threepointers in the last four minutes, and A&M hit 14 straight foul shots Wednesday night, giving the SECbound Aggies a victory over Oklahoma in a ragged opening-round match of the Big 12 tournament. In today’s quarterfinals, the ninth-seeded Aggies will meet No. 3 Kansas, which beat them twice while rolling to its eighth straight regular-season Big 12 championship. “It’s always a good game at Kansas,” Middleton said. “We just have to master our attention and go over that, too, and just go out there, execute the game plan we get tonight and just fight tomorrow and compete.” Eighth-seeded Oklahoma, trailing almost the entire second half, sliced the lead to 47-45 on Romero Osby’s four free throws before Harris connected for his second threepointer at the 3:55 mark.

Dear Annie: My best friend, “Maggie,” and I are like sisters. We have great fun, can talk about nearly anything and have supported each other through our toughest times. Our husbands also get along well, and we often do things together. Over the past year, Maggie has become increasingly critical of her husband, “Scott.” He is a likeable guy, but Maggie scolds and picks on him, rolls her eyes and basically treats him with contempt. Granted, Scott can be a little blunt, and his attempts at humor don’t always succeed, but her responses are worse. She will say, “You’re such an idiot. Why don’t you just keep your mouth shut?” Yet, the next minute, they will have their arms around each other. We often see Maggie and Scott at parties, and it is clear that others feel embarrassed by this behavior. Maggie has
Marcy Sugar and Kathy Mitchell firstname.lastname@example.org
never mentioned marital problems to me. In fact, she says sweet and complimentary things about Scott when it’s just the two of us. I don’t want to jeopardize our terrific friendship, so how do I approach this subject? She doesn’t take criticism well, no matter how gentle. — Baffled Friend Dear Baffled: Some married couples fall into the habit of letting criticisms become common and public. We think Maggie might simply need a little push in the right direction. The next
Brave ‘Face’ on cruelty, redemption A tale of bravery and defiance and almost unimaginable cruelty, the film “Saving Face” (7:30 p.m., HBO) just won the 2012 Oscar for best documentary short. The film explores Pakistan’s dark history of angry men and their relatives who burn women’s faces, often with battery acid, as a means to punish a disobedient wife or to demean and destroy a woman who refuses a marriage proposal or sexual advances. Women as young as 12 come to the Acid Survivors Foundation, a special clinic in Islamabad. Dr. Mohammad Jawad, a Pakistani-born plastic surgeon living in London, volunteers his time and services to help these women and give them back their pride, if not their lives. One woman seen here is so poor and desperate that she’s forced to live with the man who, along with his family, burned her with acid and set her on fire. The Pakistan that is seen in “Saving Face” is like a 21st-century society with one foot stuck in the Middle Ages. But we also see growing ranks of female lawyers, doctors and politicians demanding legislation to toughen laws and enact stricter sentences for perpetrators of these grotesque crimes. The film’s main stories follow two victims through surgery and recuperation as well as the progress of anti-burning legislation through Pakistan’s parliament. We also meet accused perpetrators whose elaborate justifications, denials and excuses give new meaning to the phrase “the banality of evil.” A short, poignant work, “Saving Face” barely penetrates the mentality that leads Pakistani men to such actions. Jawad explains that he offers up his work as a kind of expiation for a society that creates such monsters. But he freely admits that there is only so much he can do.

time she says or does something critical of Scott, you might take her aside and say, “Are you angry with Scott? You seem to dislike him so much lately.” You also could give positive reinforcement when you witness affection, adding, “It’s so nice to see you two getting along.” Dear Annie: I’ve been asked to be the maid-ofhonor for a friend. I was planning to throw a bridal shower with 10 to 15 guests at my apartment. I had a nice luncheontype party in mind. The other day, my friend informed me that she wants to invite 65 guests and, since my apartment is too small for that crowd, said I should host it at a local restaurant. I checked with the venue, and it is way too pricey for my budget. Even if I involve the other two bridesmaids, this will be a much bigger expense than I can afford.
JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS
For Thursday, March 8: This year you waver between your feelings and your intellect,two prominent inner voices. You will learn to integrate them or choose which one you want to lean toward. Relationships prove to be very exciting. If you are attached, the two of you have issues to work through. If you are single, you are a magnet to the opposite sex. You could date many different people or one special person; it is your call. 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 could be stressed out from pressure at work. You are handling too many different situations, and you need to distance yourself. Tonight: Listen to a suggestion. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Let your creativity soar, and you will be capable of turning a losing situation into a winning one. A friend plays a major role in what is about to take place. Tonight: Put your feet up. Gemini (May 21-June 20) You might be ready to try another approach or do something differently. Impulsiveness pushes you down the right path. Tonight: Have more fun. Cancer (June 21-July 22) You are likely to say exactly what you are thinking, and others are likely to respond accordingly. You might not be sure what to do. Tonight: Head home while singing an ode to the Full Moon. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Use special caution with a financial matter. You could be very drawn and tired of juggling funds and/or sharing your innate talents.
Are there rules when it comes to bridal shower guest lists? I don’t want to hurt her feelings or lose her friendship, but combined with the expense of the dress, shoes, hair and bachelorette party, I may need to take out a loan. How can I handle this? After all, it’s her wedding. — Soon To Be Poor Maid of Honor Dear Maid: The bride is allowed to give you the guest list, but she must keep to the hostess’s limit. When you told her you would give a shower for 15, she should have kept the guest list at 15. It is inconsiderate of a bride to force anyone to shell out more than they can afford for a shower. We recommend you tell her “so sorry,” this isn’t in your budget. — Send questions to email@example.com, or Annie’s Mailbox, P.O. Box 118190 Chicago, IL 60611.
Tonight: Talk yourself through discomfort. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You are all personality and then some. You also could feel as if you have pushed way too hard, and you find others to be constantly challenging. Tonight: Your treat. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Use the afternoon to review some details and make sure everything is as it should be. You could be more on target about a personal matter than you realize. Tonight: As you like it. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Use the daytime hours to the max. You could be surprised by what you make possible. Tonight: Vanish. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Take a long-overdue stand. You could feel pressured to maintain a steady pace. Zero in on what you want. Tonight: Focus on your goals. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Keep reaching out for someone at a distance to get more information. Seek out different opinions. Tonight: In the limelight. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Deal directly with others. A partner and several associates respond more positively on a oneon-one basis. Tonight: Let your mind wander. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) Defer to others, and understand what is happening within a relationship. You need to allow others to walk in your footsteps. Tonight: Accept a dinner invitation. — The astrological forecast should be read for entertainment only.
