Bremby to lead social services agency in Connecticut By Christine Metz

Former Kansas Department of Health and Environment Secretary Rod Bremby is leaving Kansas to serve as head of a state agency in Connecticut. Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy announced Tuesday that


Bremby would be the commissioner for the state’s Department of Social Services. Malloy noted that Bremby had the “right mindset to make the changes needed to ensure we are making progress for Connecticut’s most vulnerable residents.” Bremby was contacted by the

governor’s administration team about the position, which will start in April. “I was surprised. It was also clear to me that they had done their homework. They were well aware of many of the issues in Kansas and many of the issues I was involved with and facing at the KDHE,” Bremby said.

Bremby, a Lawrence resident and former assistant city manager for the city of Lawrence, was removed as KDHE secretary in November. In 2007, Bremby became a controversial figure across the state when he denied Sunflower Electric Power Corp.’s permit to build two coal-fired power plants in

Divergent views of slaying unfold By George Diepenbrock

A Douglas County jury Tuesday heard two dramatically different versions of events about who killed Anthony “Clacc” Vital in 2006. During opening statements Tuesday, prosecutors accused defendant Durrell Jones, 26, of shooting Vital, a 28-year-old Lawrence hip-hop artist, on Oct. 14, 2006, to collect on a drug debt. “The evidence is going to show that this was a premeditated murder,” chief assistant district attorney David Melton said. “And the evidence is going to show the defendant had decided to kill Anthony Vital before they ever turned down the driveway.” But Jones’ defense attorney attacked the credibility of the state’s key witness, Major C. Edwards Jr., 31, who has already pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter in the case. Defense attorney John Kerns said Edwards was high and drunk that night and had bragged about how he was “going to put someone under a bridge.” “(Edwards) talks about how he goes and picks up Clacc, drives outside of Lawrence and blows him away,” Kerns said. “He leaves him for dead, shoots him three times.” Jones’ first-degree murder trial opened Tuesday morning, and it’s expected to last into next week. A rural landowner found Vital’s body the morning of Oct. 15, 2006, in his rural

The green debate wasn’t all rosy at City Hall on Tuesday. Lawrence city commissioners and Douglas County commissioners were divided Tuesday on a proposal to add new environmental policies to the city and county’s planning process. On one hand, some commissioners worried that the new proposal might add a significant layer of red tape to development proposals. “Does this send potentially a negative image for companies

acknowledgment that we’re in a changing world and we have to take care of what we have,” said COUNTY County ComCOMMISSION missioner Nancy Thellman. “That requires us to plan and not just be haphazard about it. I think there is a very positive side to it.” The new Environmental Chapter to Horizon 2020 would create several policies that could lead to new environmen-

tal regulations in the future. Among the items the plan calls for are to: ● Establish a new countywide drainage plan to better manage stormwater flooding. ● Develop regulations and incentives to provide various levels of protection for major woodland areas. ● Adopt an urban forestry master plan to better manage woodland areas that are inside the city limits. ● Create regulations and incentives for protection of native prairies.

TOPEKA — Restrictions on strip clubs, stores that sell sex toys and other adult businesses in Kansas won first-round approval Tuesday in the state House, even though critics told majority Republicans they were drifting away from their party’s small-government position. The bill, advanced on a voice vote, contains the proposed Community Defense Act, statewide limits on the locations and hours of operation of adult businesses. The House expects to take final action today, and both sides expect the measure to pass and go to the Senate. The legislation would require adult businesses to remain closed from midnight to 6 a.m. and prohibit new businesses within 1,000 feet of the property line of existing similar businesses or any school, library, day care center or house of worship. There would be a “no touch” rule for employees and customers, but strip clubs and adult cabarets could still serve alcohol. Semi-nude dancers at clubs would have to keep at least 6 feet away from their customers. Supporters of the bill said they’re trying to protect Kansans from any damage to communities from adult businesses, which they said include blight, lower Knox property values and higher crime. They said small communities often can’t afford to resist adult businesses that are willing to file lawsuits to challenge local restrictions or adverse zoning decisions. “This bill protects the rural, low-population areas, very much like my district, that don’t have resources to fight this battle in court,” said Rep. Forrest Knox, an Altoona Republican. Many critics have argued the bill isn’t necessary and that the regulation of adult businesses is best left to cities and counties. But during Tuesday’s debate, they tried to appeal to Republicans, whose 92-33 majority in the House includes many conservatives who have argued that government is too intrusive and needs to lessen its regulation of private businesses. Rep. Bob Bethell, an Alden Republican and longtime Baptist pastor, said he doesn’t like adult businesses but is wary of the bill. “I listen to the principles of the Republican Party, which are smaller government, no mandates, local control, choices,” he said. Knox acknowledged that he’s spoken often in favor of a smaller, less intrusive government and even has said, “We don’t need government to be our mama.” “But there’s another American principle that’s just as important,” he said. “It’s traditional family values.” The House approved a similar bill last year. But in the Senate, where members complained they didn’t have enough time to adequately study the measure, the vote was 20-20.

In 2009, Mark Parkinson overturned that decision when he became governor and offered a deal to allow for one coal plant to be built in exchange for new laws on renewable energy. In November, Bremby was removed after refusing to resign as head of the KDHE to coordinate the cabinet transition from Parkinson’s administration to that of incoming Gov. Sam Brownback. Bremby said he was willing to help with the transition, but didn’t want to leave office to do so. After Bremby’s departure, replacement John Mitchell approved a permit for a proposed 895-megawatt coalburning power plant, just before new federal regulations on greenhouse gases went into effect in January. On Tuesday, Bremby said he didn’t think the coal plant

He said as Jones and Vital both ran around the car, they met in front of the car, then Jones shot him three times. Jones then threatened Edwards not to tell anyone or he would shoot him, too. Then the two men returned to a party in Lawrence. Edwards told jurors he felt remorseful and was wrong to lead Jones to Vital. “I didn’t know he was going to kill him, but I knew it could get ugly because he had a gun collecting money,” Edwards said.

City and county commissioners at their Tuesday afternoon study session did not take any action on the proposal. Instead, staff members were directed to examine ways to modify the language of the proposal to make it less intimidating to companies that may be looking to develop in Lawrence and the county. City Commissioner Mike Dever said he wanted the document to include more references to incentives that would be offered to developers and landowners who make their projects more environmentally-friendly. “Before any of this goes into place, you have to have incentives that go into effect with the regulations,” Dever said. “Otherwise, I don’t think this will fly.” In other business at the joint study session, city and county commissioners discussed a proposed land use plan for the Grant Township area north of the Kansas River.

The departure of Kansas Department of Health and Environment Secretary Rod Bremby to Connecticut will leave another hole in Lawrence. His wife, Janet Bremby, has been the executive director of the Boys and Girls Club of Lawrence for 12 years. Janet Bremby said Tuesday she will stay in Lawrence for the next few months as the Boys and Girls

Club board searches for a replacement. When a new executive director is found, Janet Bremby plans to complete the move to Connecticut to be with her husband. The Boys and Girls Club, a nonprofit organization, serves about 1,200 children every day. “I’m very supportive of Rod and really excited about this new opportunity,” Janet Bremby said.

controversy hurt his chances of landing the job in Connecticut. “I think the fact it was done using the law with reason was something that worked in my favor. But I don’t know to what extent that had much to do with the appointment,” Bremby said. He also noted that the focus on the coal plant overshadowed many of the accomplishments that occurred at the KDHE during his tenure. Some of the work he did as KDHE secretary — such as upgrading technology, developing web-based applica-

tions and finding ways to better integrate employees and services — will translate to his new role. The Connecticut Department of Social Services oversees 90 legislated-mandated programs and has about 2,000 employees. At KDHE, Bremby had a staff of 1,000. “It’s a much larger organization in terms of people, programs and resources. But the programmatic work of serving people is still the same,” Bremby said.

jurors that prosecutors had agreed to argue to cut four years off of his voluntary manslaughter sentence in exchange for his testimony against Jones. Prosecutors said they would present evidence to try to tie Jones to the murder weapon, a 9-mm handgun, that another man said Jones had stolen from him at a Lawrence party before Vital was shot. But Kerns painted a different picture of the night, saying Edwards was involved in a party that featured an array of drugs and that witnesses would say Edwards had been driving people around in a borrowed car — called the “community crack car” — all day that he was able to use it because he gave the owner crack cocaine. Melton said Edwards left Lawrence because he feared Jones would kill him, but Kerns contended Edwards bragged for years while he was in custody that he killed Vital and even wrote rap lyrics about it. And he said Edwards didn’t tell investigators a detailed story to implicate Jones until after he entered a plea in the case.

“The evidence you’ll hear as presented through this week, you’ll see that Major has everything to gain and nothing to lose in his situation,” Kerns told jurors in his opening statement. Kerns asked Edwards about past statements fellow inmates had made saying Edwards had confessed to them he shot Vital. He said he has never told anyone that and that fellow inmates were trying to get lesser sentences in their own unrelated cases. “I knew it was a whole bunch of people lying,” Edwards said. When Kerns asked Edwards about his lawyer haggling with prosecutors after his plea in the case, Edwards acknowledged that “freedom was important” to him, but he also contended he told his lawyer he would still testify even if it wouldn’t shorten his own sentence. Kerns is scheduled to continue questioning Edwards at 9 a.m. today.

development should occur near the Lawrence Municipal Airport and in other areas outside of North Lawrence. Commissioners indicated that they’ll want to look closely at the portion of the plan that calls for area north of Interstate 70 but south of U.S. Highway 24-40 to become industrial property. Several neighbors have argued that the property is prime farmland that should be protected. Developers and several area farmers, though, have argued the land is prime industrial ground because of its access to I-70 and the nearby airport. Both the Environmental Chapter and the Northeast Area Plan will have formal hearings at the city and county commissions before they are finalized. Dates for those hearings haven’t been set, but they likely will be after the April city commission elections.

Lawrence city commissioners are willing to spend $25,000 as they wait to see whether plans to purchase the Santa Depot in East Lawrence materialize. Commissioners at their Tuesday evening meeting unanimously agreed to accept an $87,563 federal grant to fund architectural work related to restoring the 1950s-era depot at Seventh and New Jersey streets. The grant, though, requires a $25,000 match from the city. The city, however, doesn’t own the building and has said it won’t take over ownership of the depot unless it can find grant money to do about $600,000 worth of needed repairs and code improvements to the building. But commissioners on Tuesday said they didn’t want to turn down the federal grant because it would pay for all the architectural work left to be done on the project.

Rain doesn’t dampen Mardi Gras festivities 1 | WASHINGTON, D.C.

U.S. ‘heartland’ shifting from Midwest America’s population center is edging away from the Midwest, pulled by Hispanic growth in the Southwest, according to census figures. The historic shift is changing the nation’s politics and even the traditional notion of the country’s heartland — long the symbol of mainstream American beliefs and culture. The West is now home to the four fastest-growing states — Nevada, Arizona, Utah and Idaho — and has surpassed the Midwest in population, according to 2010 figures. California and Texas added to the southwestern population tilt, making up more than one-fourth of the nation’s total gains since 2000. When the Census Bureau announces a new mean center of population next month, geographers believe it will be placed in or around Texas County, Mo., southwest of the present location in Phelps County, Mo. That would put it on a path to leave the region by midcentury.

Magnitude 7.2 earthquake jolts Japan REVELERS PLAY MUSIC AND MARCH through downtown on Fat Tuesday for the annual Lawrence Mardi Gras parade. The rain fell on the group but didn't keep them from celebrating the event. AT LEFT, a Mardi Gras parade participant keeps the rain off her head and the rhythm in her beat as she marches.

A magnitude 7.2 earthquake hit northeastern Japan, shaking buildings hundreds of miles away in Tokyo and prompting the country’s meteorological agency to issue a tsunami warning for the coast. There were no immediate reports of significant damage or injuries. Japanese officials said they were still assessing the situation and telling residents along the coast to stay away from the shore. The meteorological agency said the quake hit at 11:45 a.m. local time Wednesday and was centered about 90 miles off the northeastern coast — about 270 miles northeast of Tokyo — about 6.2 miles deep. A 24-inch tsunami reached the coastal town of Ofunato, in Iwate prefecture, shortly after noon. The meteorological agency warned that a tsunami of about 20 inches would hit the coast. 3 | CALIFORNIA

Mass fish death fouls marina An estimated one million fish turned up dead Tuesday in a Southern California marina, creating a floating feast for pelicans, gulls and other sea life and a stinky mess for harbor authorities. The sardines apparently depleted the water of oxygen and suffocated after getting lost in the marina, officials said. “All indications are it’s a naturally occurring event,” said Andrew Hughan, a California Fish and Game spokesman at the scene. The die-off was unusual but not unprecedented. 4 | CAIRO

Hecklers mar women’s rights protest A protest by hundreds of Egyptian women demanding equal rights and an end to sexual harassment turned violent Tuesday when crowds of men heckled and shoved the demonstrators, telling them to go home where they belong. The women had marched to Cairo’s central Tahrir Square to celebrate International Women’s Day. But crowds of men soon outnumbered them and chased them out. Sexual harassment remains widespread in Egypt, where women often are afraid to report sexual assault or harassment for fear they and their families will be stigmatized. A 2008 survey by the Egyptian Center for Women’s Rights found that 83 percent of Egyptian women and 98 percent of foreign women in Cairo said they had been harassed — while 62 percent of men admitted to harassing. 5 | LIBYA

Rebels slowed by pro-regime forces After dramatic successes over the past weeks, Libya’s rebel movement appears to have hit a wall of overwhelming power from loyalists of Moammar Gadhafi. Pro-regime forces halted their drive on Tripoli with a heavy barrage of rockets in the east and threatened Tuesday to recapture the closest rebel-held city to the capital in the west. If Zawiya, on Tripoli’s doorstep, is ultimately retaken, the contours of a stalemate would emerge — with Libya divided between a largely loyalist west and a rebel east as the world wrestles with the thorny question of how deeply to intervene. President Barack Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron agreed to plan for the “full spectrum of possible responses” on Libya.

Equality Coalition blasts state legislators By Scott Rothschild

TOPEKA — A group that advocates for gays and lesbians on Tuesday blasted two legislators, saying they are working to keep in state law a statute that has been declared unconstitutional. The two legislators, state Reps. Lance Kinzer, R-Olathe, and Jan Pauls, D-Hutchinson, said the criticism from the Kansas Equality Coalition was off base. The dispute is over language in House Bill 2321. During a committee meeting Tuesday, Pauls, with Kinzer’s support, kept in language that criminalizes gay and lesbian relationships despite a 2003 U.S. Supreme Court ruling that struck down such laws. Thomas Witt, state chairman of the Kansas Equality Coali-

tion, said Pauls and Kinzer should be stripped of their leadership positions on the House Judiciary Committee because they “willfully ignore the Constitution.” Pauls and Kinzer said the unconstitutional statute wasn’t being enforced and language to repeal it was contained in another bill. The Hutchinson chapter of the Kansas Equality Coalition is organizing a demonstration to raise awareness about Pauls’ actions on March 17 in Hutchinson. “We are fed up with her obvious support of harassment of gays and lesbians,” said Jon Powell, chair of the Hutchinson chapter of the KEC. — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

TOPEKA — A proposal to reduce the Kansas Earned Income Tax Credit would throw thousands of working families into poverty, religious and social service, advocates said Tuesday. “This bill takes us backwards,” said Gary Brunk, an official with Kansas Action for Children. House Bill 2347 would reduce the amount of the tax credit from the current 18 percent of the federal Earned Income Tax Credit to 5 percent when fully phased in. It would also make the credit nonrefundable, meaning that if a family’s tax credit was higher than their tax liability, they Please see BILL, page 7A

Street, between Liberty Hall and Free State Brewery, La Prima Tazza now owns the distinction of Best Coffee in Lawrence — not that it didn’t already claim to be the town’s best. Colombian, Costa Rican, Ethiopian and Nicaraguan beans are among a half-dozen estate coffees available for bulk purchase. The shop also offers just as many house blends.

For those just looking for a quick cup, the options are vast. French-pressed brews share residence on the menu with concoctions such as the exclusive Mole Mocha, a spicy take on the traditional chocolatey blend. When the temperature finally rises, iced drinks such as the Grasshopper (mint and chocolate) and Moroccan (exotic spices and chocolate) make for a fine summer option. And who

Best Dessert Or Pastry: Sylas & Maddy’s Homemade Ice Cream A locally owned favorite, this ice cream shop is way more than just plain vanilla. Here, diners are faced with a plethora of fun and creative choices, including Gold Dust, Da Bomb, Oatmeal Raisin Cookie and Blue Moon. Descriptions on each refrigerator display case let you know what exactly is in some of the more creative flavors and big, house-made waffle cones can hold more than one flavor if you can’t decide. Not your typical ice cream parlor, this one has a roving band of flavors that are as wild as anything a kid might dream up on a sugar high — and it takes a chalkboard to keep all the day’s offerings straight. About half of the regular flavors just aren’t something you’d find in the store. The aforementioned Blue Moon flavor — a blue ice

TYLER ACKERMAN, a Kansas University junior from Overland Park, left, and Chris Valencia, a KU junior from Denver, have lunch at Chipotle Mexican Grill at 911 Mass.

It’s fast, satisfying, comes in its own convenient foil wrapper, and can meet your daily calorie allotment, if you go for broke during the ordering process — yes, the giant Chipotle burrito is the epitome of today’s grab-and-go. The burrito is the king of the national chain’s make-it-in-front-ofyou menu, but myriad ingredient choices ensure no two burritos are the same. Patrons can choose from vegetable and meat options, and add or skip several salsas and extras like

Lied Center lobby gets more elbow room

Attend March Medicare Madness Seminar at the Smith Center March 16, 23 & 30th 6-7:00 pm Call 838-8000 for details.

Kevin Anderson/Journal-World Photo

THE COMPLETION OF AN EXPANSION that added 1,800 square feet to the lobby of the Lied Center on the Kansas University campus was dedicated Tuesday. The new Kemper Foyer is the result of a $300,000 gift from the William T. Kemper Foundation-Commerce Bank trustee.

would have their liability paid off but would no longer get a check for the difference. Currently, the full credit is refundable as a way to offset the regressive nature of sales taxes paid by low-income families. The EITC is touted by advocates as one of the most effective anti-poverty programs going. But state Rep. Terry Calloway, R-Pittsburg, said he proposed the bill because Kansas’ EITC was more generous than most states that offer it. “It looked like we were out of proportion to the region and out of proportion to the national average,” Calloway told the House Tax Committee. Testimony during the committee meeting indicated the state could save $56 million by reducing the EITC. But offi-

tion oncologists at 12 locations. For the KU Cancer Center, the partnership would mean an expanded opportunity for research, additional Phase I clinical trials and support for National Cancer Institute designation. The two cancer centers have collaborated in the past. In 2007, they combined their

blood and marrow transplant program. A KU Hospital spokesman declined to discuss financial aspects of the deal, saying such details were proprietary information.

cials from the Kansas Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services said $29 million of that would have to go back to the agency to maintain required funding levels to attract federal dollars for programs that help the poor. Jan Lewis, president and chief executive officer of Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas, said it didn’t make sense to reduce a tax credit for low-income families when the state would be forced to use the savings to fund programs for many of those same families. Rep. Mario Goico, RWichita, agreed, saying it was better for the families to get the money directly through the tax credit instead of making them “more dependent on the state.” Advocates estimated that more than 90 percent of

Kansas’ EITC dollars go to families with children, and the average credit is about $360. Without the credit, 6,500 Kansas families would have their income drop below the poverty line. An additional 128,000 Kansans already in poverty, including more than 50,000 children, would be pushed deeper into poverty. Tax Committee Chairman Richard Carlson, R-St. Marys, said he didn’t know yet whether the committee would work on the bill.

I recently read a Journal-World article about how robbery has dropped on KU’s campus this past year from eight in 2009 to zero in 2010. I was curious as to how this compares to robberies at K-State?


According to Kansas State University’s annual safety report, there was one robbery reported in both 2007 and 2008, but zero in 2009. They have not yet released the 2010 report.

INJURY ACCIDENT • A 21-year-old Lawrence man and a 19-year-old Lawrence man sustained injuries to their mouths after a fight with two male suspects early Saturday morning in the 2500 block of West 31st Street. They were taken to Lawrence Memorial Hospital for treatment. A third victim, a 22-year-old Lawrence man, declined medical attention. According to Sgt. Matt Sarna, the fight broke out among several subjects during a party. Lawrence police were dispatched to the scene about 12:42 a.m. The two suspects fled the scene before officers arrived. The suspects have not been located and the investigation continues. • A 61-year-old Lawrence man reported to Lawrence police Tuesday that someone had stolen $1,183 worth of computer equipment, including a laptop, from his vehicle between 10 p.m. Wednesday and 7:30 a.m. Thursday in the 1500 block of Stratford Road.


• A 23-year-old Lawrence woman reported to Lawrence police Tuesday that someone had stolen $1,147 worth of miscellaneous electronics, including four GPS navigation units and other items from her vehicle between 10:30 p.m. Monday and 4:19 a.m. Tuesday in the 1900 block of Stewart Avenue.

Funding shift Government grants get many good programs off the ground, but who will sustain those programs over the long term?


here is no question that the Just Food pantry has done a good job of providing food to local individuals and families, who, due to various circumstances, have been unable to buy sufficient food to meet their needs. Those qualifying for the food must have an annual income below $20,147 for individuals, $27,214 for a two-person household and $41,348 for a four-person household. The Just Food pantry was established in October 2009, with a $250,000 grant from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Now, Just Food spokespeople say they need to raise $75,000 by April 1 to stay in business. Again, the pantry is meeting a serious need, but this is just one more case where federal money is provided for good programs — “stimulus” funds to hire more police officers, pay teachers, augment budgets and support other programs, including the pantry. But what happens when the grant money is gone? It’s so easy to accept federal grants and handouts, but how many recipients stop to think how they will maintain or sustain the funded programs when the grant money runs out? Just Food, with the help of Harvesters Community Food Network in Kansas City, has been a lifeline for many local individuals and families, but, with the federal subsidy coming to an end, will the pantry be able to fund the program with local dollars? Are there other food pantry programs in Lawrence that have figured out ways to keep their operations going with donations of food and money from local residents? Just Food offers a perfect example of the government starting and funding a program, but when the money is exhausted and those operating or in charge of those programs cannot sustain the venture, private residents or other entities are supposed to pick up the bills or let the program die. If it does, indeed, die and people lose their jobs or services are discontinued, then it’s the private community that is blamed. The United States is not yet a welfare state, but it is heading in that direction. Until it becomes a reality, recipients of federal handouts, as attractive as they may appear, should give far more attention to how they can sustain the programs when Uncle Sam is no longer picking up the tab.

Pre-intervention questions on Libya WASHINGTON — In September 1941, Japan’s leaders had a question for Adm. Isoroku Yamamoto: Could he cripple the U.S. fleet in Hawaii? Yes, he said. Then he had a question for the leaders: But then what? Following an attack, he said, “I shall run wild considerably for the first six months or a year, but I have utterly no confidence” after that. Yamamoto knew America: He had attended Harvard and been naval attache in Japan’s embassy in Washington.

interventionists “areSome Republicans, whose

skepticism about government’s abilities to achieve intended effects ends at the water’s edge.”

He knew Japan would be at war with an enraged industrial giant. The tide-turning defeat of Japan’s navy at the Battle of Midway occurred June 7, 1942 — exactly six months after Pearl Harbor. Today, some Washington voices are calling for U.S. force to be applied, somehow, on behalf of the people trying to overthrow Moammar Gadhafi. Some interventionists are Republicans, whose skepticism about government’s abilities to achieve intended effects ends at the water’s edge. All interventionists should answer some questions: ● The world would be better without Gadhafi. But is that a vital U.S. national interest? If it is, when did it become so? A month ago, no one thought it was. ● How much of Gadhafi’s violence is coming from the air? Even if his aircraft are swept from his skies, would that be decisive? ● What lesson should be learned from the fact that

Europe’s worst atrocity since the Second World War — the massacre by Serbs of Bosnian Muslims at Srebrenica — occurred beneath a no-fly zone? ● Sen. John Kerry says: “The last thing we want to think about is any kind of military intervention. And I don’t consider the fly zone stepping over that line.” But how is imposing a no-fly zone — the use of military force to further military and political objectives — not military intervention? ● U.S. forces might ground Gadhafi’s fixed-wing aircraft by destroying runways at his 13 air bases, but to keep helicopter gunships grounded would require continuing air patrols, which would require the destruction of Libya’s radar and anti-aircraft installations. If collateral damage from such destruction included civilian deaths — remember those nine Afghan boys recently killed by mistake when they were gathering firewood — are we prepared for the televised pictures? ● The Economist reports Gadhafi has “a huge arsenal of Russian surface-to-air missiles” and that some experts think Libya has SAMs that could threaten U.S. or allies’ aircraft. If a pilot is downed and captured, are we

Anti-education feeling hurts U.S. In 1963, Richard Hofstadter, one of the greatest historians of the 20th century published his “Anti-Intellectualism in American History.” In this book, he argued that there runs throughout our nation’s history a dangerous tradition of popular distrust of learning. Although Hofstadter was writing history, he might just as well have been prophesying the future, for it seems very clear to me that antiintellectualism and even opposition to secular education is finding new strength in the United States today. Even words which once had positive connotations, like intellectual and elite, are now little more than epithets hurled at those who champion the notion that an educated populace is essential to America’s future. Thomas Jefferson, himself, perhaps, the greatest intellectual in our national history, would have been appalled at the rising tide of anti-teacher and antipublic school sentiment. It seems, at virtually all levels, politicians and commentators have decided to attack our educational system. These attacks go far beyond criticism of teachers’ unions. Everywhere we look today public universities are losing legislative and popular support. Public school programs are being cut to the bone and,

Mike Hoeflich seems to me that “theItAmerican people

are rapidly losing sight of the important role education has played in our history.” in the case of some, eliminated entirely. Science has become politicized. Basic science is called irrelevant. History has become the arena for political myth creation and any notion of seeking the truth is subordinated to partisan political agendas. It seems to me that the American people are rapidly losing sight of the important role education has played in our history. Our rise to national prominence was built on the idea of an educated citizenry. Our economic prosperity was brought about by American creativity. In the early 19th century, it was believed that our national pride required a great national literature, great art pro-

duced by Americans. The unfettered curiosity of American scientists — men like Robert Fulton, Eli Whitney, Thomas Edison, Steve Jobs — has made us the greatest technological society in history. Are we really willing to throw all that away? Do we really want our children and grandchildren to be deprived of the joys of learning and the opportunities created by a solid education? One of the most ironic features of the current rise of anti-intellectualism in the United States is the fact that anyone who attempts to defend education’s importance is immediately characterized as an effete “intellectual” and an elitist. Perhaps, it would be more accurate to say that we are people whose lives were enriched beyond measure by schools, libraries, universities. I am not saying that American education is perfect nor that all teachers are without fault. What I am saying is that our national future, just like our history, lies in a free, educated, literate population. If we destroy our educational institutions, generations to come will be impoverished in mind and body. — Mike Hoeflich, a distinguished professor in the Kansas University School of Law, writes a regular column for the Journal-World.

BYU hypocrisy To the editor: Boo on the sports columnist published in the Journal-World who praised what he called a “shining moment” when Brigham Young dismissed a basketball player for violating the university’s “honor code.” Its extremist code bans premarital sex, all homosexual sex, the use of alcohol, tobacco, coffee, tea and soft drinks with caffeine, facial hair for men and clothing for women that is sleeveless or cut higher than the knees. This unfortunate young man was kicked off the basketball team for having sex with his girlfriend. It is a cruel irony that he was punished for dishonorable sexual conduct by a university whose very name honors a polygamist/bigamist who had 55 wives, three of whom were 16 years old when he married them. Consummating those relationships would be considered rape today. Who deserves to feel shame, a college student who makes love with his girlfriend or Brigham Young, the man and the university? Ted Frederickson, Tonganoxie

Stirred to action To the editor: I am a selfish person. I don’t volunteer, I give little to charity. This is more out of laziness than a lack of compassion. It’s not something I’m proud of as I feel that I have been blessed with good fortune throughout my life. So, when the Journal-World ran a story weeks ago on how the Just Food food pantry in Lawrence needed $100,000 by April to continue serving operating, I made a mental note to contribute. But I never did. Afterwards, I remembered, from time to time, about my intention to contribute. But I never did.

tenets of agreed-upon elements of international law, but a civil war. How often has intervention by nation A in nation B’s civil war enlarged the welfare of nation A? ● Before we intervene in Libya, do we ask the U.N. for permission? If it is refused, do we proceed anyway? If so, why ask? If we are refused permission and recede from intervention, have we not made U.S. foreign policy hostage to a hostile institution? ● Secretary of State Hilary Clinton fears Libya becoming a failed state — “a giant Somalia.” Speaking of which, have we not seen a cautionary movie — “Black Hawk Down” — about how humanitarian military interventions can take nasty turns? ● The Egyptian crowds watched and learned from the Tunisian crowds. But the Libyan government watched and learned from the fate of the Tunisian and Egyptian governments. It has decided to fight. Would not U.S. intervention in Libya encourage other restive peoples to expect U.S. military assistance? ● Would it be wise for U.S. military force to be engaged simultaneously in three Muslim nations? — George Will is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.

ready for the hostage drama? ● If we decide to give war supplies to the anti-Gadhafi fighters, how do we get them there? ● Presumably we would coordinate aid with the leaders of the anti-Gadhafi forces. Who are they? ● Libya is a tribal society. What concerning our Iraq and Afghanistan experiences justifies confidence that we understand Libyan dynamics? ● Because of what seems to have been the controlling goal of avoiding U.S. and NATO casualties, the humanitarian intervention — 79 days of bombing — against Serbia in Kosovo was conducted from 15,000 feet. This marked the intervention as a project worth killing for but not worth dying for. Would intervention in Libya be similar? Are such interventions morally dubious? ● Could intervention avoid “mission creep”? If grounding Gadhafi’s aircraft is a humanitarian imperative, why isn’t protecting his enemies from ground attacks? ● In Tunisia and then in Egypt, regimes were toppled by protests. Libya is convulsed not by protests but by war. Not a war of aggression, not a war with armies violating national borders and thereby implicating the basic

Attracting business To the editor: Nearly every state is facing a budget deficit. Kansas is not one of the exceptions. Politicians are quick to discuss cutting spending on programs that are critical for the public welfare like education, health care, mental health care, law enforcement, infrastructure maintenance, and even art. No one asks the ugly question: How much money does Kansas spend to attract corporations? At what benefit? Nationwide, states spend billions to attract business. Is this healthy free market competition or is it a game of financial chicken? These are not easy questions to answer, a simple Google search doesn’t get the job done. Perhaps the states should form a union and demand equitable treatment. Justin Anderson, Oskaloosa

So, this past Sunday, when the J-W ran a follow-up article that described how the organization was still $75,000 short with its approaching deadline and how it was helping feed up to 60 hungry people daily, I knew I was also running out of time to act. So I finally did. I have a hard time with the idea that there are adults and, particularly, children, in our community, that have to worry about something as basic as food. So, I want to issue a call to those like myself, who mean well but often don’t get around to it, to take a moment and make a difference for Just Foods, which makes such a difference for those in our local community that it serves, by contributing whatever you can at One hundred percent of your contribution stays in Douglas County to feed hungry people.

Kansas University Medical Center had recently hosted an "Aerophobic YEARS Clinic" to help peoAGO ple who suffered IN 1986 from fear of flying. One participant said that she had decided to seek help after she found herself turning down a free trip to Hawaii because she was too claustrophobic to board the airplane.

According to Walter H. Gunn, the psychologist leading the program, some of the participants might never be comfortable while flying, but they would at least be able to do so without having a panic attack. — Compiled by Sarah St. John

Sporting KC hits home run KANSAS CITY, KAN. — Until Monday, I always thought nobody ever had crushed a ball farther out of the park with a stadium naming than the New York Yankees when they branded their spring training home Legends Field. Now it ranks no better than second place, and a distant second at that. Sporting Kansas City will hold its home soccer matches at Livestrong Sporting Park, so christened at a Tuesday announcement in which worldfamous cyclist and testicular cancer survivor Lance Armstrong participated. Now, all who attend a Major League Soccer match or a concert at the $200-million, underconstruction, state-of-the-art stadium, will think about a loved one stung by cancer. Normally, ownership groups put naming rights up for auction. In this case, the money’s going in the other direction. A portion of ticket and concession revenues will be sent to Livestrong, Armstrong’s charitable cancer-fighting foundation. Robb Heineman, president of Sporting KC, said he expects as much as $10 million to be raised for the Austin, Texas-based charity during the six-year agreement. That’s not the only interesting anti-cancer wrinkle here. No tobacco products are allowed in the stadium or outside it. The brand Livestrong, the word that appears on more than 70 million yellow bracelets throughout the world, has left many wondering about its origin. “We went around the world and interviewed thousands of cancer survivors and we asked them to tell us their story, tell us about your struggle, tell us about what you’ve dealt with, what you’re thinking,” Armstrong said. So they did. “We listened to these stories, thousands of them, and at the end of it all we came up with the idea that these people understand what it means to live strong,” Armstrong said. “It became the name. It went on the band. It became the brand, and it is now going to be on the outside of the stadium.” Livestrong president and CEO Doug Ulman also attended the announcement. Then 19 and playing soccer at Brown University in 1997, Ulman was diagnosed with a form of cancer known as chondrosarcoma. Armstrong sent him an e-mail offering to help. Ulman wasn’t familiar with the name then. They became e-mail friends for a couple of years and Armstrong invited him to Austin, Texas to work for him. Ulman can’t wait to attend a soccer match at Livestrong Sporting Park. “The seating bowl is right on top of the field,” Ulman gushed. “The quality of the viewing angles is second to none. The technology, the field itself ... I think the players are going to leave thinking it’s the best stadium they’ve played in.” Livestrong Sporting Park is scheduled to open June 9, when the Chicago Fire battles Sporting KC and cancer.

KANSAS UNIVERSITY FRESHMAN KEENA MAYS (5) SHOOTS over Colorado’s Chucky Jeffery for two points. The Jayhawks waxed the Buffaloes, 71-45, in the Big 12 tournament on Tuesday in Kansas City, Mo.


Kansas women stomp Buffs By Matt Tait

KANSAS CITY, MO. — With its 7145 pounding of Colorado in Tuesday’s opening round of the Big 12 tournament at Municipal Auditorium, the Kansas University women’s basketball team made sure there would be no warm and fuzzy farewell tour for the Buffs, who will bolt for the Pac-10 next season. On the strength of 17 points from sophomore guard Monica Engelman and 16 more from sophomore forward Carolyn Davis, Kansas (20-11) snapped ● Kansas has a two-game losa tall task ing streak, ahead in knocked off CU today’s secfor the third ond round: A time this season meeting with and, most top-seed Bayimportantly, lor, a team moved on to that beat the today’s second Jayhawks, round, where a 76-37, in the matchup with regular seatop-seeded son.

CU shot just 26 percent for the game, 29 percent in the first half and 24 percent in the second. “I think (for) a chunk of the second half they were shooting 18 percent,” Henrickson said. “(I’m) just real proud of the defensive effort.

Three straight Kansas three-pointers (two from Engelman and one from Tania Jackson) pushed KU’s lead to 2514, and Engelman (7-of-13 shooting) added a jumper with a toe on the line to make it 27-14 with 3:50 to play in the half.

ONE YEAR AGO, TOP-SEEDED KANSAS UNIVERSITY was knocked out of the NCAA Tournament in the second round. A year later, Marcus Morris, pictured above, is doing everything in his power not to let it happen again.

Unfinished business consumes Marcus Morris on journey to stardom By Jesse Newell

Only five Kansas University players remained in the Oklahoma City Thunder locker room following the biggest upset of the 2010 NCAA Tournament. It was March 20, a Saturday, and Thomas Robinson and Elijah Johnson both sat in front of their lockers, while Markieff Morris and Xavier Henry buried their heads in their laps, still stung after Northern Iowa’s 69-67 victory over KU. Only one player stood. Marcus Morris paced back and forth, still trying to make sense of what had just happened. Marcus felt like he’d just lost a family member. Never again would he play with guard Sherron Collins, center Cole Aldrich and Henry, with Aldrich and Henry later declaring for the NBA Draft. Marcus was certain of one thing, a line he kept repeating to himself over and over again. “I can’t let this happen to my team next year. I can’t let this happen to my team next year. I can’t let this happen ... ” It was then, watching his teammate pace back and forth, back and forth across the room, that Johnson

He leans forward in the office chair, answering questions intently, and after a few minutes talking to him, it’s tough not to notice the contradictions. The player that KU coach Bill Self says can do more things than any other he’s ever coached is the same one that drives the coach crazier than any other. The player with the reputation of being dirty on the court is a media favorite thanks to his friendliness,

Greinke likely to start season on DL PHOENIX (AP) — Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Zack Greinke is likely to begin the season on the disabled list because of a fractured right rib he injured while playing pickup basketball in the offseason. The former AL Cy Young winner is expected to be out two to four weeks. Initial X-rays were negative, but an MRI exam Mon-

day revealed a hairline fracture in one rib and a bruise in a second. Greinke, traded from Kansas City to Milwaukee in the winter, said he was hurt when he went up for a rebound and fell on his side. “Everyone always told me not to do it because I was going to get hurt,” Greinke said. “It finally caught up to me.”

The Brewers open the season March 31 in Cincinnati. “I’m feeling good but it’s not worth it,” Greinke said. “Hopefully it won’t be too long. I don’t want to miss any time with the team, especially at the beginning. Until it heals there’s nothing you really can do. You just need to let it heal.” Greinke had made two starts

By Jason Lloyd Akron Beacon Journal

COLUMBUS, OHIO — He can’t stop lying. Even when he was trying to explain Tuesday why he lied in the first place, Jim Tressel was still lying. He lied and deceived his bosses — all of them — for months. Ohio State Athletic Director Gene Smith, university President E. Gordon Gee and NCAA investigators who came to town in December looking for the answers he refused to supply. Typically, lying to all of those people is a fireable offense — it’s even written into his contract as such. But Tressel is returning to work today as the head football coach at Ohio State University because of six consecutive Big Ten championships, a 9-1 record over Michigan and a national championship soiled in the same stains that cloak the program again today. Tressel should have been fired for lying to his bosses. Not Tuesday, when OSU officials finally came clean because of a Yahoo! Sports report that forced their hand, but back in January when they first discovered Tressel’s lies and cover-up. Tressel learned last April, through an email from a local attorney giving him a head’s up, that the federal government raided a local house and at least two current players were involved in a memorabilia scam with a convicted felon (Eddie Rife) and receiving free tattoos from him. He lied to everyone about it and pleaded ignorance — the same ignorant excuse he used in 2002 when Maurice Clarett was driving around town in free cars, in 2004 when Troy Smith was taking money from a booster and previously in the late ’80s and early ’90s when Ray Isaac’s pockets were stuffed at Youngstown State under his watch. For Smith and Gee to suspend Tressel for two games (against Akron and Toledo) and fine him $250,000 (14 percent of his salary for next season) is a snub of arrogance at the rest of college sports. When Tennessee men’s basketball coach Bruce Pearl lied to NCAA investigators, he was suspended half of the conference season by SEC Commissioner Mike Slive. When Washington football coach Rick Neuheisel lied to NCAA investigators, he was fired by the university. Pearl lied about hosting potential recruits at his house and Neuheisel lied about a March Madness office pool — hardly the same as lying about playing ineligible athletes. And let’s be clear: Tressel knowingly played six ineligible athletes all of last season. According to the self-report the university filed with the NCAA on Tuesday, Tressel lied to Ohio State at least three times about his knowledge of the case — twice when pressed about it by school officials in December and prior to that on Sept. 13, when he signed an NCAA Certificate of Compliance indicating he had reported any knowledge of possible violations to the institution. This isn’t over. Just because Ohio State thinks a pathetic two-game suspension and hefty fine suffices, the NCAA doesn’t have to agree. It can assess more sanctions, such as a longer suspension and in more meaningful games. Pearl didn’t play any ineligible players. Tressel did. And for once, he can’t plead ignorance about it. “The integrity of this program,” Gee said, “and the integrity of this coach is absolutely superb.” Lies. All lies.





Ohio State’s Tressel spun a web of lies

this spring, the latest on Sunday when he allowed a run on five hits in two innings against Texas. Overall, the right-hander gave up one run on six hits with three walks and three strikeouts in 31⁄3 innings. Milwaukee got Greinke as it tries to load up for a run at its first NL Central title.

Ohio State suspends Tressel for two games COLUMBUS, OHIO — Ohio State football coach Jim Tressel received an e-mail last April telling him that two of his players were caught up in a federal drug-trafficking case and the sale of memorabilia, breaking NCAA rules. Tressel responded: “I will get on it ASAP.” But he never mentioned it to Ohio State’s compliance department or his athletic director for more than nine months. On Tuesday, Tressel was suspended for the first two games of the 2011 season and fined $250,000 for violating NCAA rules by failing to notify the school about the players’ involvement. He also will receive a public reprimand and must make a public apology. The NCAA is still investigating and could reject Ohio State’s self-imposed penalties and add more sanctions. “Obviously I’m disappointed that this happened at all,” Tressel said. “I take my responsibility for what we do at Ohio State tremendously seriously and for the game of football. I plan to grow from this. I’m sincerely saddened by the fact that I let some people down and didn’t do things as well as I possibly could have.” Last December, the NCAA suspended quarterback Terrelle Pryor and four teammates for the first five games on the 2011 season for selling jerseys, championship rings and trophies to a local tattoo parlor owner. The suspensions came just 16 days after the U.S. attorney told the school of a federal investigation that included players. The school did not learn until January, however, that Tressel had been tipped off to the federal investigation back in April. Yahoo! Sports first reported Tressel’s prior knowledge of the possible improper benefits on Monday. “I think that your No. 1 critic is yourself,” he said, tears welling in his eyes at a Tuesday night news conference. “You spend time thinking about how you can do things better. I don’t think less of myself at this moment. I felt at the time as if I was doing the right thing for the safety of the young people and the overall situation.”

COLLEGE FOOTBALL Notre Dame bans hydraulic lifts SOUTH BEND, IND. — Notre Dame announced Tuesday that it will no longer use hydraulic lifts for videographers at football practices, five months after a student fell to his death when one of the machines toppled over on a windy day. The school said it will instead use remotecontrolled cameras — a system The Rev. John Jenkins, Notre Dame’s president, said fulfills a pledge made after Declan Sullivan died.

NFL Union deciding if info is enough WASHINGTON — The NFL Players Association retained an international investment bank to help it decide whether the league’s offer to reveal more financial information during negotiations will be enough to satisfy the union’s call for full disclosure.


Zeroing in on the crux of the labor dispute — how to split $9 billion in revenues — one NFLPA executive committee member, Cleveland Browns linebacker Scott Fujita, said in a telephone interview Tuesday with The Associated Press and NFL Network that what the NFL has turned over to the union so far “hasn’t been sufficient.” Another executive committee member, Indianapolis Colts center Jeff Saturday, said as he left Tuesday’s 9 1/2-hour mediation session that the bank would “help judge how helpful the material they were offering to give us” would be. The current collective bargaining agreement was set to expire last week, but two extensions now have pushed the cutoff to the end of Friday.

RB Barber plans to return EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — After four years in retirement, former New York Giants running back Tiki Barber is looking to get back into the NFL. It won’t be with the Giants, though. The Giants acknowledged on Tuesday that the 35-year-old Barber has asked to be taken off the reserve-retirement list and that they will release him once the league allows it. Teams cannot make roster moves during the current extension of the CBA talks.

COLLEGE BASKETBALL ND’s Hansbrough, Brey honored NEW YORK — Notre Dame guard Ben Hansbrough has been selected the Big East player of the year and Fighting Irish coach Mike Brey was chosen as the league’s coach of the year. The announcements were made Tuesday at Madison Square Garden on the opening day of the conference tournament.

NBA Karl signs extension with Denver DENVER — Two weeks after Carmelo Anthony punched his ticket out of town, Nuggets coach George Karl signed his own long-term extension to stay in Denver. Karl signed on for three more seasons Tuesday. His deal has been in the works for months but took a back seat to the season-long negotiations to trade Anthony, who was dealt to the New York Knicks two weeks ago.

McMillan, Trail Blazers agree PORTLAND, ORE. — The Portland Trail Blazers and coach Nate McMillan have agreed to a two-year contract extension. McMillan is in his sixth season as coach of the Blazers. He has a 234-239 record with the team.

Arroyo joins Celtics WALTHAM, MASS. — Veteran point guard Carlos Arroyo participated in his first practice on Tuesday with the Boston Celtics after being signed to a minimum, pro-rated contract for the remainder of the season.

KU to face top-seeded Bears today By Matt Tait

KANSAS CITY, MO. — The last time the Kansas University women’s basketball team faced Baylor, the Bears were the No. 1-ranked team in the nation and a winter storm had just unloaded on Lawrence. But the swirling snow and ice outside was nothing compared with the 76-37, coldhearted beating the Bears gave the Jayhawks inside Allen Fieldhouse in mid-January. “We’re shocked that we just didn’t have a pulse,” KU coach Bonnie Henrickson said. “Just shocked and embarrassed, quite honestly.” Henrickson and her crew will get their chance to atone today, when the Jayhawks (2011) and Bears (28-2) battle at 11 a.m. in the quarterfinals of the Big 12 tournament at Municipal Auditorium. “First game was tough,” KU sophomore Carolyn Davis said. “We don’t think we went out and competed our best. We didn’t go out and execute or do any of the things that we planned to do. And I don’t think that we’ll do that this time. We’re ready for this game.” Baylor, the tournament’s top seed, advanced to the quarterfinals via first-round bye. The Bears are led by national-player-of-the-year


second run came from senior forward Brittany Spears, who finished with a game-high 21 points and became Colorado’s all-time leading scorer. “Oh, yeah, we thought that we (were) back in the game because we were only down by two,” said Spears of the run. “But then they went on a run and we all just panicked and went separate ways.” From there, KU held CU scoreless for more than eight minutes — from 14:53 to 6:49 — and the Jayhawks’ pressure defense produced several steals and easy baskets during a 16-0 run that blew the game open. “We always talk about not letting the other team come out and make a run,” Davis said. “When they came out and did that, it wasn’t what we had planned to do. And I think that it was great for us to just fight back. We didn’t let them continue to make a run. We got stops and we pushed in transition, and that’s what cut the run.” That and the fact that several Jayhawks elevated their play while Davis sat on the bench for nearly six minutes of the second half with three fouls. Engelman took over the scoring burden. Point guard Angel Goodrich controlled the tempo. And reserve guard Keena Mays flourished during the decisive run, scoring seven points and gathering multiple loose balls. For the game, Mays finished with nine points, seven rebounds, four assists and a steal. In three games against CU this season, Mays

fine-tuning the X’s and O’s, Henrickson is counting on pride to carry her team in today’s rematch. “We talked a little bit in the locker room (Tuesday) about remembering what (it) felt like emotionally after that (first meeting),” Henrickson said. “I don’t think any of us have forgotten that, and that’s important. But it’s a new day. It’s a new game. A different game.”

Engelman, who also had her share of success against CU this season, averaging 14 points per game, said she was proud of her team’s ability to put the hammer down with its leading scorer on the bench. “I’m not surprised,” Engelman said. “Gotta be prepared for situations like that. With Carolyn out, you have to find different ways (to score).”

Kansas did that Tuesday and, in doing so, flashed a little of the untapped potential that Henrickson and the Jayhawks have been waiting for all season. “If there’s anything we’ve done consistently, it’s be inconsistent,” Henrickson said. That makes today’s quarterfinal squabble with Baylor (28-2, No. 3 in the nation) an even scarier proposition. But it’s one the Jayhawks are looking forward to. “It’s another opportunity,” Engelman said. “We played them in conference and we weren’t very satisfied with our performance. But I think we’re more excited. It’s the next game in the tournament, second round, so (our focus is on) trying to survive and advance.”

4B Wednesday, March 9, 2011


game in west Philly. One of the men was coaching, and after exchanging words with people in the crowd during the game, he was shot afterwards. Marcus says he still hears about young kids with dreams that never make it out of the city. “In Philadelphia, it’s either you rap, you play ball or you sell drugs,” Marcus says. “That’s just the Philadelphia mindset for kids around our age.” Marcus’ most traumatic experience came when he was around 14. While hanging out late at night in his neighborhood with Markieff and some other friends, gunfire erupted as a confrontation broke out on his street. Marcus’ first instinct was to get away. And it wasn’t a slow instinct. The two brothers immediately took off, sprinting their way safely back to the house. “Bullets,” Marcus says, “don’t have a name.” The incident changed Marcus’ view on life. Even now, when he goes home to visit, he’s careful about what he does and where he goes. “Just in north Philly,” Marcus says, “every place can be the wrong time.” ********************** During his junior year of high school, Marcus received a cell-phone call in class from his neighbor who told him that his house was in flames. Nearly everything was gone. Clothes, photographs and even the bunk bed that Marcus and Markieff shared were destroyed, along with the house. With few other options, Angel decided to move the family in with her parents, Shirley and Thomas, on Jerome Street in the Hunting Park neighborhood in Philly. The three boys stayed in the basement, roughly as big as one of the rooms at Jayhawker Towers where Marcus lives now. The basement’s height was only 6-foot-5, meaning both Marcus and Markieff had to hunch over to avoid hitting their heads on the ceiling. Blake slept on the floor, while Marcus and Markieff shared a bed made up of two twin-sized mattresses pushed together. Every day, the brothers filled up kerosene heaters to warm the basement, hoping that the heat would last through the night, which didn’t always happen. “Me and my brother just had too much pride for anybody to feel sorry for us,” Marcus says, “so we never really told anybody about it.” Friends and coaches said even with the altered living arrangements, Marcus and Markieff didn’t change. High-school teammate Lamar Trice still came over to their house everyday, even spending the night on occasion. When he did, he’d sleep between the twins on their mattresses in the basement. Marcus says the move was difficult at times, but it also provided ample motivation. His grandparents still live in the old house on Jerome Street. Shirley is still working into her 60s, and other family members are struggling to get by as well. Marcus knows making the next level could help them out of those situations. “I just feel like me and ’Kieff are the future of the family,” Marcus says. “I feel like we’re the future of Philadelphia at times.” ********************** Prep Charter High School coach Dan Brinkley still laughs when talking about the phone call he took from his cousin, Leonard Brinkley, about seven years ago. Leonard, a teacher’s aide, began talking about these two kids at his school that played basketball. Neither was very good, but they were both 6foot-5. Dan was confused. “Lenny,” he said, “I thought you worked at an elementary school.” Leonard responded. “I do work at an elementary school.” About a week later, Dan was driving up Broad Street — one of the biggest and busiest

MARCUS MORRIS, RIGHT, AND ELIJAH JOHNSON GREET each other in this Jan. 16, 2010, file photo from Lubbock, Texas. Johnson says Morris is one of the best friends he’s ever had in his life. in Philadelphia. Looking to his left, he spotted two young boys walking in the opposite direction. Both were about 6-5. And both, Dan says, looked like babies. Though he’d never seen them before, Dan knew he’d just found the Morris twins. After pulling a U-turn in the middle of the street, Dan parked his car and followed the twins to their house on Erie Avenue, staying a few steps behind. When they made a left onto a porch, Dan followed the confused brothers up the stairs. “Is your mom home?” Dan asked. Once inside, Dan talked to Angel about the twins joining his AAU team: the Hunting Park Warriors. He made sure to include a promise. “If you allow your sons to play basketball,” Brinkley said, “I guarantee they’ll get Div. I scholarships.” Angel agreed, and Brinkley received a pair of raw 13-yearolds. Neither could dunk at 65. Both struggled to even make layups. During one game, both twins stopped running at midcourt during the middle of the game; turned out that a previous coach had told them that if they needed breaks, they should just take them right there in the center of the court. Still, Brinkley noticed something right away with Marcus: The big man had great hands. “I told him, ‘I’m going to make you a guard,’ and he started laughing at me,” Brinkley said. “When I wasn’t laughing, he realized I was serious.” On his state championship team his senior year at Prep Charter High School, Marcus Morris ended up being more than the team’s starting small forward. He also was the team’s backup point guard. ********************** When Prep Charter High School assistant coach Rahim Washington picks up the Morris twins from the airport, he’s always greeted with the same questions. “Where are Tamyre and Rahim? Did you bring them?” Rahim Jr., 13, and Tamyre, 4, are Rahim’s two sons, and both gravitate to the twins when they make their way back to Philly, whether it’s playing video games or wrestling on the floor. Rahim Washington, 32, was just 25 years old when he first met the Morris brothers as an assistant coach for Prep Charter High School. Many times, Washington took it upon himself to challenge Marcus. At 5-foot-9, Washington would face Marcus every day in one-on-one battles. Washington — who is second in the record books at Overbrook High School in Philadelphia for points scored in a game, behind a guy named Wilt Chamberlain — won most of the games. He let Marcus know about it, too. Brinkley also had the twins for gym class, and one assign-

ment was teaching them “The Bop” — an old-school Philadelphia dance popular in 1950s night clubs. Sometimes, when watching KU games, Washington can see some of that same rhythm from Marcus in high school, where he finally convinced him to dance with the girls to get his ‘A.’ During Marcus’ sophomore year, there was one time when he was complaining on the team van about head coach Dan Brinkley. Marcus said he didn’t want to play any more. Why did Brinkley want him at Prep Charter if he was just going to sit on the bench? Washington delivered the truth back to Marcus. He wasn’t playing hard enough. There was no reason, at his size, that he should only be getting more than three or four rebounds per game. “Well,” Marcus said, “I’m just going to go out there and grab every rebound then.” The next game, he led Prep Charter with 19 rebounds. “Don’t tell him that he can’t do something,” Washington says. “Don’t tell him that this guy is outworking you, because his thing is, ‘All right, I’m going to prove you wrong then.’” Washington’s relationship with Marcus goes deeper now. This past summer, while Marcus and Markieff were in Philadelphia, Washington picked them up from their grandmother’s house and drove them to St. George St. Barnabas Episcopal Church on the corner of South 61st and Hazel Avenue. There, Rahim Jr. and Tamyre were baptized, and afterwards, Marcus and Markieff received a pair of certificates: Markieff, the godfather of Rahim Jr.; Marcus, the godfather of Tamyre. *********************** Marcus Morris is ready to tell a secret. Things weren’t always great for him at KU. His freshman year, KU coach Bill Self told him that he was out of shape. Before every practice, Marcus says, he had to touch every step in Allen Fieldhouse. He says he’d run all the way up a set of stairs, touch the blue number marking the section, then run back down to the floor before going to the next row. At the time, he hated Self. “My freshman year, I wanted to transfer. I couldn’t stand it,” Marcus says. “But I’m happy that he did that to me, because it made me the person I am today and the player I am today.” During Marcus’ freshman season, Self remembers times when he would try to correct him on something minor, Marcus would deny something that the coach had seen with his own eyes. Marcus would tell Self he hadn’t messed up, continuing to insist he hadn’t all the way until film sessions, when the video clearly showed Marcus’ flub. Now, Self’s critiques aren’t questioned. The coach hears, “My bad,” from Marcus more than anything else.

“He’s changed a lot in that regard,” Self says. One thing that was never in question was Marcus’ personality. Though the Morris twins have earned the reputation as dirty players because of some on-court physical play, Self says Marcus and Markieff are the two most fun guys on the team to hang out with, which makes their teammates care about them. KU senior Brady Morningstar calls Marcus as loyal of a person as he’s been around since he’s been at KU. The Morris twins’ motto — “Family over Everything” — even has become a team slogan. The two use the abbreviation “FOE” on most of their Tweets, and the words are inscribed on both Marcus’ and Markieff’s left biceps. Sophomore Elijah Johnson — who likes to make SmashBurger runs with Marcus — says people have the wrong impression of him if they only think he’s a rough-tough kid from Philly. “I see that side of Marcus when he’s mad or frustrated,” Johnson says, “but Marcus has to be one of the best friends I’ve ever ran across ever in my life.” He’s become a leader, too, and Johnson was there the moment it happened. *********************** Talk to the ones close to Marcus, and they all have a story about how the Northern Iowa loss affected him. Trice — currently a guard at Mount St. Mary’s — said Marcus told him he wasn’t sure exactly how the loss had happened, but that he was going to get himself a championship. “He was going to go harder than ever before with workouts,” Trice said. “He said he wasn’t taking any days off. He stuck by those words.” Washington saw it firsthand in the summer. If Marcus wasn’t lifting weights, he was shooting around. He worked on drills, going from his jump shot to his long jump shot to his mid-range game to his jump-hook, one right after the other. There was a time in the summer when Washington texted Marcus at 10 p.m., and Marcus answered it at 2 in the morning. He said he’d just gotten out of the gym. Sometimes, Marcus would mention to Washington that his wrist hurt. Or his calves were sore. Or his shoulders didn’t feel right. Though Washington pleaded with Marcus to take one day off to let his body rest up, Marcus said he couldn’t. There were days when Marcus went through a light workout, only shooting a few free throws. But he never took a day off. “It’s all because of that loss,” Washington says. “He doesn’t want to have that feeling again.” Brinkley also received calls from Marcus, wanting to work out both morning and night. “I had never seen that kind of focus,” Brinkley says. Marcus himself says every time he saw a basketball, every time he took a shot, the same thoughts ran through his mind. “Man, what if I’d have made this shot against Northern Iowa? Or what if I would have grabbed that rebound?” “I think about it every day,” Marcus says. “I thought about it every day.” When Johnson stays over at the twins’ dorm room, Marcus’ first words in the morning are about basketball. When the two leave class, Marcus is talking about basketball. “It’s on his mind. It’s on all our minds,” Johnson says, “but he just speaks it more than anybody else.” That included March 20, 2010, a Saturday, when in the middle of a locker room, Marcus repeated the same words over and over, pledging to his teammates to work harder than he ever had before. More than an hour after the team bus had left, Marcus made it around to his four teammates. Even though they didn’t feel like doing anything at the time, Marcus made them stand up with him. Marcus wrapped his arms around Henry, Robinson and Johnson and made a promise. “It won’t happen again,” he said, as the teammates made their way out of the locker room.


Marcus earns AP player of year By Gary Bedore

Normally a man of many words, Marcus Morris needed just one to describe his emotions upon being named Big 12 Player of the Year. “Happy,” said Morris. He on Tuesday completed a sweep of the league’s top player awards. The Associated Press tapped him for the league’s top player honor on Tuesday, two days after the league coaches deemed him best in the conference. “I mean, I can’t do it if we don’t win. I put it all on us winning,” Morris added. The Jayhawks take a 29-2 record, 14-2 in league play into Thursday’s first-round Big 12 tournament game against either Oklahoma State or Nebraska (11:30 a.m., Sprint Center, Kansas City, Mo.). “Look at Marcus ... who has been more consistent?” KU coach Bill Self said of Morris, who averages 17.3 points and 7.0 rebounds a game. “He’s very deserving. You can make a case for some others too. There are good players in our league. At the end of the day, my personal biased opinion is the right guy won it because he was the best player on the team that won it (league).” Morris, a 6-9 junior from Philadelphia, received 15 of 22 votes from a panel of sports writers and sportscasters who cover the conference. He and Colorado’s Alec Burks were the only unanimous firstteam picks, chosen on all 22 ballots. Marcus’ brother, Markieff, was named to the AP’s second-team. The rest of the first team: Kansas State senior Jacob Pullen, Texas sophomore Jordan Hamilton and Baylor senior LaceDarius Dunn. Texas forward Tristan Thompson is Big 12 Freshman of the Year and Missouri junior forward Ricardo Ratliffe Newcomer of the Year. Morris is the fifth Jayhawk to be named Big 12 Player of the Year, and the first since Wayne Simien in 2005.

“Coach said it a few times that he thought I could be. Winning basically makes that possible,” Morris said. “I don’t think it’s so much being the best player in the conference. I think it’s because we won and how we weren’t picked to win the Big 12 but we won it.” Pullen received five votes for player of the year. He’s the only repeat first-team selection from last season. Hamilton and Burks each received one vote for player of the year. Markieff Morris was joined on the second team by Thompson, Missouri junior Marcus Denmon, Iowa State senior Diante Garrett and Texas A&M sophomore Khris Middleton. ●

Anderson had fun on visit: Braeden Anderson, a 6-8, 230pound senior forward from Wilbraham and Monson Academy in Wilbraham, Mass., completed his official campus visit to KU on Tuesday. Anderson, who originally committed to DePaul only to recently re-open his recruiting, told he may also visit Kentucky, Florida and Arizona. “Kansas is going to be really, really tough to beat,” Anderson told, “but I welcome those challengers. It was really hard and tough to not give coach Self good news during my visit. It was tough not to commit, but my uncle really wants me to see some other places. He wants to go on some visits with me and enjoy this process. He wants to come back with me to Lawrence, so that’s something we will talk about.” Anderson told that KU is the leader. “Oh man, my off icial visit to Kansas was pretty crazy,” he said. “Being able to really see the history and tradition of Kansas basketball was really cool.” — Doug Tucker of the Associated Press, who picks the All-Big 12 team with the help of media members, contributed to this report.

Big 12 tournament up for grabs in K.C. By Doug Tucker Associated Press Sports Writer

K A N S A S C I T Y , M O . — Topseeded Kansas University goes into the Big 12 tournament favored to win but with much to lose. Colorado and Nebraska, in the final hours of their Big 12 membership, both have much to gain. For fired-but-still-working Pat Knight, the four-day event in downtown Kansas City is an opportunity to extend his time as Texas Tech’s coach by at least one game. And besides all that, the last Big 12 tournament that will actually have 12 teams should be wide open. “Certainly this year, there’s so many teams out there with so much to play for, it should be as competitive as any tournament we’ve had,” Kansas coach Bill Self said. The No. 2 Jayhawks (29-2), the conference regular-season champions for the seventh year in a row, figure to already own a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tourney. But if they

should stumble and lose on Thursday morning to the winner of today’s Nebraska-Oklahoma State matchup, they could get pushed down a line, depending on what happens at other conference tourneys. “To me, the conference tournaments aren’t as important as the regular season,” Self said. “What it does is give everybody hope. It gives everybody incentive to play for. I know it’s not the most important thing, from our standpoint, as the NCAA tournament. But still yet, it is our league and it is our conference championship and any time you lace ’em up you want to try to play your best.” Knight was fired by Texas Tech on Monday after going 50-60 in three seasons. The Red Raiders (13-18) will have a bevy of seniors line up against sixth-seeded Missouri (22-9) in the last game tonight. “This is about the seniors,” Knight said. “Hopefully, I’m going to coach again. But we’ve got some seniors, and this could be their last game or last couple of games.”

Willis throws 2 perfect innings in Reds win over Royals SURPRISE, ARIZ. (AP) — Dontrelle Willis continues to make a case for a spot in the Cincinnati Reds’ bullpen. Willis pitched two perfect innings, striking out three, and Drew Stubbs hit a threerun homer and the Reds defeated the Kansas City Royals, 5-2, on Tuesday. Willis, the 2003 National League rookie of the year, has made only three relief appearances in 192 games in the majors. The Reds have openings for left-handed relievers and Willis hopes to get one of the spots.

He has allowed two hits in five scoreless innings in three spring training outings. In his past two outings, he has been perfect in four innings against the Royals and Seattle Mariners. “We keep our f ingers crossed that he keeps performing the way he’s performing and enjoying it while he’s doing it,” Reds manager Dusty Baker said. Willis won 22 games for the Florida Marlins in 2005, but has won only three games in the majors the past three years. He was with Detroit and Arizona in 2010 and

signed a minor league contract in December with the Reds. The Royals could not get the ball out of the infield in Willis’ two innings. Willis fielded two comebackers and covered first on an Irving Falu bunt. “He made some excellent plays,” Baker said. “Man, he beat that runner to first base. He’s an athlete. I didn’t think he had a chance on that bunt.” Baker was equally impressed with Willis’ pitching. “He was throwing his breaking ball for strikes at

will,” Baker said. “When you do that, you’re going to be tough especially on left-handers. His command is getting better and better, better than I can remember it. It’s real good. His breaking ball is better, I can tell you that. That’s a good sign when you see that. “He’s a guy who can get out righties and lefties out. He’s been a guy who has been in championship ball games. He’s a guy that brings energy and life on the field and off the field as well.” Royals right-hander Kyle Davies pitched three shutout

innings. He got out of a firstinning jam after giving up singles to Stubbs and Edgar Renteria and both advanced on a wild pitch. “From there on I had to bear down,” Davies said. “I thought I made some pretty good pitches to get out of it.” Davies recovered by striking out Joey Votto and Scott Rolen and retiring Jay Bruce on a fly to center. The Royals took a 2-0 lead in the third when Billy Butler hit a two-run homer. Royals rookie left-hander Danny Duffy walked Chris Valaika and Ryan Hanigan in

the fourth before giving up a home run to Drew Stubbs. “I need to stop nibbling and pitch with conviction,” Duffy said. “I’m nibbling too much.” Reds starter Travis Wood gave up two runs and five hits in three innings, while striking out two and walking two. “My pitches were working pretty well,” Wood said. “Butler just got the head of the bat on the ball. Having some success last year, knocks out some of the nerves. I probably put a lot of pressure on my self last year.”

MOURNERS EMBRACE as they exit Christ Memorial Church after the funeral for Wes Leonard on Tuesday in Holland, Mich. Leonard collapsed on the basketball court after celebrating his game-winning basket with his Fennville High School teammates.

Michigan teen ‘larger than life’ By Tim Martin The Associated Press

H O L L A N D , M I C H . — Classmates, coaches and former opponents were among the mourners who filled a southwest Michigan church Tuesday to celebrate the short life of a teen athlete who friends and family say will have a long-lasting impact. Many of the more than 1,500 people at Wes Leonard’s funeral wore orange ribbons, and some released orange and black balloons outside the church, mirroring the colors of the Fennville High team that he made a game-winning shot for last week before collapsing on the basketball court. The night before they paid tribute to Leonard at the church, his teammates honored the 16-year-old junior as they played through their grief to win their first game in the state Class C tournament. Those who knew the “larger than life” football and basketball star always recognized that he was special, even apart from sports, his uncle, Jim Leonard, said during the church service. National attention in the wake of Leonard’s death has touted his character to a far broader audience.

theme in Leonard’s life, and the funeral program listed sections of the memorial as first quarter, second quarter, halftime, third quarter, fourth quarter and “final victory.” Mourners saw video tributes to Leonard that showed him playing football and basketball along with photos of him outside of athletics. Flowers, including a wreath with orange flowers, surrounded his casket. The funeral ended with a rap song inspired by Leonard called “Blackhawk Down.” Some of the lyrics: “They say the good die young, wish this was a dream,” and “You’re in the sky where the real stars belong.” The Blackhawks, at 21-0, are one of the highest-rated Class C teams in the state headed into today’s second round district game. Monday night’s 65-54 win over Lawrence was emotionfilled before it ever started. In tribute to Leonard, Fennville sent just four players onto the court before the opening tip. The f ifth player took the court after a dramatic pause to wild cheering from the crowd. “I think he was watching down on us,” Fennville coach Ryan Klingler said after the game.

NEW YORK (AP) — Hard to believe Connecticut had gone six years since its last victory at the Big East tournament. Kemba Walker and the Huskies stopped that skid against an overmatched opponent. The star guard scored 26 points and UConn won a Big East tournament game for the first time since 2005, beating DePaul, 97-71, on Tuesday in the opener of a conference showcase loaded with NCAA contenders. “We had a nice bounceback game,” Huskies coach Jim Calhoun said. “We’re happy to get a win. It’s been a while.” Jeremy Lamb, playing on a sore knee, had 17 of his 19 points in the first half for the 21st-ranked Huskies (22-9), who got back on track after losing four of their final five regular-season games. No. 9 seed UConn advanced to play today against No. 22 Georgetown, the No. 8 seed at Madison Square Garden. UConn beat the Hoyas, 7870, at home on Feb. 16 in the only meeting between the teams this season. The Huskies had lost six straight Big East tournament games since beating Georgetown in the 2005 quarterfinals, a surprising streak of futility for a school that has won two national championships and six Big East tourney titles under Calhoun, its Hall of Fame coach. The slide included that classic, six-overtime loss in the 2009 quarterf inals to Syracuse, which handed the

Check out 20 Duck ways to add color to your diet



People, those two little ducks (a 5-pounder and a pet a baby goat, some 6-pounder) rendered about a gallon of fat. I am not chicks and a big dog. And, kidding you. Maybe more. It was crazy. It was like the piece de resistance, they when a 97-pound woman gives birth to a 12-pound have a tame elk. That’s right, we petted an elk. How baby and you just scratch your head and go, ‘How?’”


“Eat Right With Color” during National Nutrition Month, the American Dietetic Association is suggesting the following 20 ways to enjoy more fruits, vegetables, whole grains and dairy: 1. Variety abounds when using vegetables as pizza toppings. Try broccoli, spinach, green peppers, tomatoes, mushrooms and zucchini. 2. Get saucy with fruit: Puree berries, apples, peaches or pears for a thick, sweet sauce on grilled or broiled seafood or poultry, or on pancakes, French toast or waffles. 3. Mix up a breakfast smoothie made with low-fat milk, frozen strawberries and a banana. 4. Heat leftover wholegrain rice with chopped apple, nuts and cinnamon. 5. Make a veggie wrap with roasted vegetables and low-fat cheese rolled in a whole-wheat tortilla. 6. Try crunchy vegetables instead of chips with your favorite dip or low-fat salad dressing. 7. Grill colorful vegetable kabobs packed with tomatoes, green and red peppers, mushrooms and onions. 8. Banana split: Top a sliced banana with a scoop of low-fat frozen yogurt. Sprinkle with a tablespoon of chopped nuts. 9. Add color to salads with baby carrots, grape tomatoes, spinach leaves or mandarin oranges. 10. Prepare instant oatmeal with low-fat or fat-free milk in place of water. Top with dried cranberries and almonds. 11. Stuff an omelet with vegetables. Turn any omelet into a hearty meal with broccoli, squash, carrots, peppers, tomatoes or onions with low-fat, sharp cheddar cheese. 12. “Sandwich” in fruits and vegetables. Add pizzazz to sandwiches with sliced pineapple, apple, peppers, cucumbers and tomato as fillings. 13. Wake up to fruit. Make a habit of adding fruit to your morning oatmeal, ready-to-eat cereal, yogurt or toaster waffle. 14. Stock up: Fill your fridge with raw vegetables and fruits — “nature’s fast food”— cleaned, fresh and ready to eat. 15. Top a baked potato with beans and salsa or broccoli and low-fat cheese. 16. Microwave a cup of tomato or vegetable soup for a quick afternoon snack. 17. “Grate” complement: Add grated, shredded or chopped vegetables such as

zucchini, spinach and carrots to lasagna, meat loaf, mashed potatoes, pasta sauce and rice dishes. 18. Stuff a whole grain pita with ricotta cheese and Granny Smith apple slices. Add a dash of cinnamon. 19. Make your main dish a salad of dark, leafy greens and other colorful vegetables. Add chickpeas or edamame (fresh soybeans). Top with a low-fat dressing. 20. Try this recipe for an easy, healthy snack. Surprise! Popcorn is a whole grain.

cool is that? I’ll tell you how cool it is. It is cool enough to make me feel A-OK about spending over 70 bucks for two ducks, that’s how cool. Back to the ducks. I had thawed them well in advance, so they were room temperature. We preheated the oven to 300 degrees, and Adam and Kurt cleaned them up — removed the necks, remaining bits of feathers, and livers, the only organ meat left in them. Then I gave each one a nice coating in olive oil, inside and out. Next, I cut a lemon in half and put one half inside each duck, along with a handful of cut-up onion, some cloves of garlic, salt, pepper and fresh thyme. I also sprinkled all those ingredients on the outside of the duck, except the garlic cloves, which I used to give the duck a good rub before putting it inside. Once I had them prepped and stuffed full of flavorful goodness, I tied their little legs together and Adam cut slits in their skin in a diamond pattern, in order to allow them to release the fat. Also, we gave them several good stabbings with a fork. We wanted as much fat out of those beauties as we could possibly get. Then we popped the ducks in the oven and set the timer for one hour. Our plan was to cook them for 3 1/2 total hours, but to take them out of the oven three times (once per hour) and flip them over and re-stab with the fork. In the last half-hour, we turned the heat up to 350, because at that point we dumped a whole jar of my homemade orange marmalade all over one of the birds, and we wanted it to get good and baked-on and sticky. Once the ducks were finally cooked, we removed them from the oven and set them aside to rest for a while, which is important. And right before we ate, we carved. People, those two little ducks (a 5-pounder and a 6pounder) rendered about a gallon of fat. I am not kidding you. Maybe more. It was crazy. It was like when a 97-pound woman gives birth to a 12-pound baby and you just scratch your head and go, “How?” Once the ducks were roasted and the fat was rendered, we were ready to cook fries. I had prepped by slicing up some Yukon golds — eight or nine for five people (they’re small) into french-fry-shaped sticks. Adam heated the oil in a sauce pan over medium-high

heat and began the frying process. Fries work best if you do them twice — once for cooking and once again for browning and crispiness. So we did them in batches (don’t crowd), and when one batch was pulled out of the “round one” pot and laid to rest on a bed of paper towels, the next went in, and when it came out the first batch went back in for “round two.” Get it? This way, you get maximum “fry"ness out of the deal. Then you just grind a little sea salt over the whole mess and eat it. And cry. This is not a time to be con-

Spring is coming, and so is better produce By Alison Ladman For The Associated Press

With spring around the corner, it’s time to start watching the grocer for seasonal — and therefore tastier — produce, such as asparagus, fennel, watercress, radishes and avocados. And once you f ind them, you might as well combine them into a seasonal salad. For added fresh flavors, we use a medley of parsley, cilantro, dill and basil. Meanwhile, savory and salty smoked trout (sold in the refrigerator case near the smoked salmon) makes the salad substantial and satisfying without being heavy. Smoked mackerel also would be good.

MARINATED SPRING VEGETABLE AND SMOKED TROUT SALAD 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar 2 cloves garlic, minced 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil Zest of 1 orange 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper 1 pound asparagus, bottoms trimmed 1 head fennel, thinly sliced 1 bunch watercress, cut into 2-inch pieces 1 large handful torn mixed soft herbs, such as parsley, cilantro, dill and basil 8 ounce-package smoked trout 2 radishes, thinly sliced 1 avocado, pitted and sliced

In a large bowl, whisk together the vinegar, garlic, oil, orange zest, mustard, salt and pepper. Add the asparagus and fennel, tossing to coat. Cover and set aside at room temperature to marinate for 1 hour. Toward the end of the marinating time, heat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil. Remove the asparagus and fennel from the marinade and arrange on the prepared baking sheet. Reserve the marinade. Roast the asparagus and fennel for 20 minutes, or until tender when pierced with a fork. Allow to cool for 15 minutes. In a large bowl, toss togeth-

PARSNIP AND APPLE MUFFINS 1 cup pecans 3 parsnips, peeled and grated (about 2 cups) 1 large apple, peeled, cored and grated 2 cups all-purpose flour 1 cup sugar 3/4 teaspoon baking soda 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon ground ginger 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon 1/2 cup golden raisins 2 large eggs 3/4 cup safflower or sunflower oil 1/2 cup milk or non-dairy substitute 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and place rack in center of oven. Line an (18-cup) muffin tin with paper cupcake liners and set aside. Toast the pecans about 10 minutes or until lightly browned and fragrant. Let cool and then chop coarsely. Combine parsnips and apple in a large bowl and set aside.

NUTRITION, CHOOSING, STORING What they are: For comparison’s sake, parsnips resemble bleachedout carrots. Like carrots, parsnips are sweet, especially after a frost when their starches are converted to sugars. They have been cultivated since ancient times and were brought to the U.S. by Europeans in the 1600s. Parsnips do look like parsley root, but parsley root is missing the parsnip’s sweetness. Season: Parsnips are available year-round. Locally grown parsnips are available late fall through winter. Nutrition: One cup of sliced raw parsnip has 100 calories, no fat, 7

grams of fiber, 6 grams of sugar and 38 percent of your daily vitamin C, according to How to pick: Go for large, squat parsnips for sweetness. Parsnips that are long and lean tend to be stringy. Also avoid signs of sprouting, ones that are pockmarked or limp. How to store: Wrap parsnips in paper towels, place them inside of a plastic bag and put them in the coldest, most moist part of your fridge for up to a month, according to Aliza Green’s “Field Guide to Produce.”

parsnips WHAT DO I DO WITH ...

‘Ivory carrot’ nutritious and tasty

By Sarah Henning

Once upon a time, far, far away, the parsnip was a vegetable king, prized for its difficult-to-find sweetness. It was loved, cultivated and even gently stowed as Europeans crossed the oceans and planted in the Americas. And ... that’s where this tale turns into a backward telling of “The Ugly Duckling.” Rather than going from a metaphorical unwanted bird into a beautiful swan, this swan turned out to be less desirable than the sweeter vegetables discovered in the New World, most notably corn. “I think people have gotten used to eating vegetables that have a higher sugar content, and the ultimate vegetable there is corn,” says Nancy O’Connor, director of educa-

O’Connor says that once you find just the right parsnips, the best way for a novice to eat them is simple. “Roasting has a way of transforming vegetables,” says O’Connor, who adds that you could do half-parsnips, half-carrots because they cook in the same amount of time. “And with parsnips you could just peel them and cut them on the diagonal in thick slices and toss them with olive oil and salt and just roast them in a hot oven, like 400 degrees, until they’re tender and slightly caramelized. “That tends to bring out more of the sugars in the vegetable, and I think it has a way of taming even strong vegetables.”

I think people have gotten used to eating vegetables that have a higher sugar content, and the ultimate vegetable there is corn.” — Nancy O’Connor, director of education and outreach at The Merc, 901 S. Iowa tion and outreach at The Merc, 901 S. Iowa. “And those stronger vegetables, all the things in the broccoli and cauliflower family and things like turnips and parsnips, they’re just more of a ‘stand up and shout out their flavor’ kind of vegetable.” When looking at parsnips in the store, if they shout anything to the untrained eye, it might just be “ivory carrot.” The vegetable does have quite the likeness to its more popular cousin, and like the carrot, the parsnip is high in vitamin A. And, like those popular

orange veggies, you want to pick ones that aren’t shriveled or weak, says Wes Nellis, produce supervisor for Checkers Foods, 2300 La. “They’re kind of like a carrot, you know? Basically, you look for a firm parsnip that’s not limp,” he says, before checking a large book full of factoids about each of the many fruits and vegetables the grocer carries. “Small- to medium-sized parsnips are usually the best quality. Provided they are firm and well-shaped and they should be free of straggly rootlets and fairly smooth.”

Central expanding garden with $6,000 grant By Karrey Britt

Central Junior High School’s garden will more than double in size this spring thanks to a $6,000 LiveWell Lawrence grant and donations from farmers and businesses. The garden got its roots about four years ago as an after-school project. “It started by tilling up some dirt and putting some plants in because one of the teachers was really into gardening and she got some kids excited about it,” says Laura

Leonard, after-school program manager. Then, the school received a grant from the Lawrence Arts Commission to do an art garden. The students used what they planted to create natural dyes, flower arrangements and culinary treats. They also took photos of their work. “Then, it grew from there,” Leonard says.

About 20 students have volunteered to take care of the garden each spring and fall, and they’ve planted a variety of items: tomatoes, carrots, lettuce and okra — to name a few. In the summer, it was mostly maintained by teachers; occasionally, a few students would help out. Not anymore. Students will take over garden responsibilities throughout the growing season and will sell produce at the Thursday markets in the parking lot of Cottin’s Hardware store. The students also will have a say in what gets planted in

the 20 different beds. “The students will be doing a majority of the work. We are trying to make sure that control of t h e ga rd e n i s s t ay i n g i n t h e hands of the students,” Leonard says. First, they need help getting the garden ready for tilling during spring break and then creating the beds. They are seeking volunteers for two workdays, which both begin at 10 a.m. They are Saturday and April 2. If you would like to help, contact Leonard at, or call her at 330-4817.

Duck star of decadent meal “E

verything but the quack,” my friends and I took to saying as we prepared a dinner of epic proportions together a week or so ago. You see, my friends Kurt and Brian recently redesigned and remodeled their kitchen. And it. Is. Fabulous. I wasn’t about to let them have such a thing and not share it with me, so I connived and finagled and said I’d go out to Vinland and get some farm-raised ducks if they’d let me come over and cook them in their state-ofthe-art, beautiful, well-planned kitchen. I had never eaten a duck before, let alone cooked one. But nothing like that has ever stopped me in the past. I did a little reading, thought through my plans, then threw them all out the window, along with several empty wine bottles. My friend Adam (of the chocolate torte) was a godsend because at least nine times an hour, as we cooked, I said, “I don’t know what I’m doing. Is this right?” And he helped. In fact, I think at one point during the six hours we were in that kitchen I just sat down and nursed a whole bottle of wine while he whipped around and made six dishes at once. Kurt and Brian patiently did dishes and hauled their KitchenAid mixer here and there for us. It’s the first time I ever used a “professional” series one — the top doesn’t flip back like on my “artisan” one. So fancy.

I drove out to Vinland to Vesecky Family Farms on the recommendation of Free State Brewery’s Chef Rick Martin to purchase my little beauties, and dang if that wasn’t worth the price of admission.

Children safest when they learn self-protection

Dear Mom: We understand your fears, but most men are perfectly responsible with children. There is no specific profile of a pedophile. In fact, many of the same qualities that would make a man an excellent father also describe pedophiles — those who are terrific with children and engage them in fun activities. Pedophiles are usually friendly and charming. They tend to g ravitate toward areas that put them in close

WHAT’S THE CATCH? By Judith Hanks


Annie’s Mailbox

Dear Annie: You printed a and the eyes are the first to letter from “Anonymous or go. — Hairless and Happy I’d Be in Big Trouble,” who didn’t know how to talk to his wife about her excess facial hair. I would bet she has no idea. Last year, my hairdresser asked whether I wanted her to wa x my eye b rows . I thought my eyebrows were fine. Tell him to spend $50 on a good, lighted, magnified makeup mirror. I was — Please e-mail your questions shocked at not only my eyeto, or brows, but at my mustache, write to Annie’s Mailbox, P.O.

Children of single mothers are particularly v u l n e ra b l e because pedophiles often cozy up to Mom in order to get close to children who need a father figure. You can get out of baby-sitting offers by saying, “That’s sweet of you, but it’s too soon. Maybe when she’s a little older.” The best way to protect your children is to keep a close eye on them, and when they are old enough, help them protect themselves. Teach them that they can talk to you about anything, to come to you when something doesn’t seem right, and that no adult with good intentions would ask them to keep secrets from their parents.

’Real World’ and other distractions Imagine a world where you’re not allowed to think. Or express yourself about anything not involving the crudest sensation. For anybody with a mind and who likes to use it, it would be a kind of hell. Or “The Real World: Las Vegas” (9 p.m., MTV). In this, the 25th installment of the fishbowl series, the granddaddy of reality spectacles, a group of well-honed types move into the penthouse of The Hard Rock Cafe. If you’re going to surrender your life to a reality show, you might as well live in a product placement. As we’ve come to expect from this, there are two male “players” who behave rather typically and not unlike sociopaths. A tease at the episode’s beginning hints of a violent altercation. Will it erupt between them? Then there’s the Catholic School Boy who just lost his virginity and can’t wait to talk about it. And the too-handsome-to-be-true southern gentleman who harbors some kind of secret about his past as a male model. Of all the girls, only one has a boyfriend back home. Gosh, I can’t imagine how that will work out. Even the folks who created the slogan “What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas,” knew that most people stay, or want to stay, in Las Vegas for few days at a time. At most. To linger longer is to be trapped in a dark amusement park that grows more claustrophobic and boring by the minute. Welcome to “The Real World.” ● Speaking of distractions, the news’ rubber-necking obsession with Charlie Sheen’s self-destructive behavior offers another example of the lengths corporate media will go to avoid reporting “the news.” CNN’s fledgling prime-time talk show “Piers Morgan Tonight” (8 p.m., CNN) devoted an hour to the deranged sitcom star. In a surprising twist, its glib host seemed more deluded than his notorious guest. Morgan repeatedly referred to “Two and a Half Men” as a “family show” and as a “great show,” when it is neither. The CBS executives who appear so surprised and hurt by Sheen’s recent statements and actions expect us to believe, or to forget, that they based their sleazy show on Sheen’s reputation for sleazy behavior. As powerfully chronicled on last week, Sheen has a history of hitting and even shooting women and of being served restraining orders by women who grew to fear him. Yet folks like Morgan treat him like an amusing “bad boy.” Does he have to kill somebody for us to change our minds? Or will that only launch this mindless frenzy into the O.J. stratosphere?

Tonight’s other highlights ● At last, the official 13 finalists perform on “American Idol” (7 p.m., Fox). ● Claire snoops to conquer on “Modern Family” (8 p.m., ABC). ● Murder in the windy city on “Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior” (9 p.m., CBS). ● A home invasion victim may have something to hide on “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” (9 p.m., NBC). ● Lily mulls a major decision on “Off the Map” (9 p.m., ABC). ● Raylan finds himself on a collision course with the Bennetts on “Justified” (9 p.m., FX).

JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS For Wednesday, March 9: This year, become more conscious of your daily environment. There are many ways of saying the same thing — some more effective than others. You will want to learn more productive and dynamic ways of responding. If you are single, you could meet up with someone quite different and interesting. If you are attached, as a couple, you could manifest a closer connection with deeper, more grounded communication. Taurus brings out your personality. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You'll Have: 5Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult Aries (March 21-April 19) ★★★★ Curb expenditures. If a boss seems to be changing his or her ideas, go along. Be open to innovative thinking when brainstorming. Tonight: Speak your mind. Taurus (April 20-May 20) ★★★★★ Zero in on what is important when dealing with a friend or loved one. He or she listens and appreciates your feedback. Tonight: The world is your oyster. Gemini (May 21-June 20) ★★★ Honor your thoughts, and, for the moment, keep your opin-

ions to yourself. Your ability to see beyond the obvious or to know what drives others is a gift. Tonight: Do quiet work. Cancer (June 21-July 22) ★★★★★ Zero in on what looks like a priority. You know what you want, which is the first step in achieving a goal. Tonight: Where the action is. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) ★★★ Keep a high profile. Adapt to a new concept or technology. Your ability to deal with changes becomes a high priority. Tonight: Read between the lines. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) ★★★★★ Note a tendency to want to work with a partner and to try different things. Extremes and surprises mark plans, ideas and get-togethers. Tonight: Togetherness works. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) ★★★★★ One-on-one relating takes you to a new level of understanding with a close associate, partner, friend or loved one. See what makes a situation work, then decide if this effort is worth it. Tonight: Keep what another person shares hush-hush. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) ★★★★ Defer to others with the full knowledge of what needs to occur. You

know much more than you realize about a work or health matter. Tonight: So many offers. Sagittarius (Nov. 22Dec. 21) ★★★ A nice, even pace pulls you out of the doldrums. Reflection and conversation point to a new way of approaching a financial matter. Tonight: Squeeze in some exercise. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) ★★★★ Allow your creativity to flourish. Take advantage of a volatile conversation and brainstorm. Tonight: Don't overthink an issue. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) ★★★★★ Speak your mind within the constraints of a family situation. A risk that might be easy for you could be a nightmare for another person. Tonight: How you view an expenditure could change with a little research. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) ★★★★★ Ask; doublecheck facts. Your ability to hit a home run depends on excellent planning and attention to detail. Tonight: Catch up on news with a friend. — The astrological forecast should be read for entertainment only.

Dear Annie: Are there any signs to look for to determine whether someone is a sexual predator? I have always heard that when it comes to young children being sexually abused, it is usually a close relative or friend. I have a 6-month-old daughter who has five uncles. I am scared to leave her with any man other than her father, so I refuse to allow any male to baby-sit her. Is this irrational? I feel bad, but whenever guys are around her, I am always watching with a close eye. I’d rather be safe than sorry. How do I explain this politely to my brothers and brothers-in-law when they ask about baby-sitting her? — Protective Mom

or shaving creams
