REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE RON PAUL walks on stage to the excitement of the crowd during a rally Friday night at Kansas University’s Lied Center. About 1,000 people showed up — on a KU game night — to hear from Paul.

Enthusiastic crowd turns out ahead of today’s GOP caucuses Alex Garrison acgarrison@ljworld.com

A smaller government with greater individual liberties would bring economic prosperity to Kansas and throughout the country. That was Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul’s message to a packed house at the Lied Center on Kansas University’s campus Friday night. It was his third appearance of the day in the state, after events in Topeka and

Wichita, ahead of today’s statewide caucuses. “If you have a free society and sound money, it should help everybody,” Paul said during a media conference after the event. “People say, ‘How are you going to help one state versus another state?’ But I think that if you provide equal liberty and equal justice under the law, everybody benefits from that.” Garrett Wagner, a student in New York who returned to vote in his home district in Lawrence,

strongly agreed with Paul’s message of a decisively hands-off approach to the economy. “Our debt is killing our economy,” Wagner said. “I support Dr. Paul because his plan to phase out the IRS and eliminating the Federal Reserve would mean everyone would have more money.” Young people like Wagner were out in full force at the event, organized by Lawrence’s Youth for Ron Paul group. Enthusiastic chants of “President Paul!

President Paul!” broke out within the crowd of more than 1,000 before he spoke, as did standing ovations during the hourlong public event. However, without having won a single state contest outright, the Texas congressional representative has a long shot of even securing the nomination. When asked about Please see PAUL, page 2A

Anti-abortion group derides KU Med’s objection to bill By Scott Rothschild srothschild@ljworld.com

TOPEKA — Hoping to tap into deep distrust of Washington, Republican Rick Santorum suggested Friday that President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney share a top priority: to take away Americans’ money and freedom so they can tell them how to live. A day before Kansas Republicans weigh in on the party’s presidential contest, Santorum looked to shore up support in this Midwestern state that seemed ready to give the former Pennsylvania senator yet another win and further challenge Romney’s front-runner status. With sharp rhetoric, Santorum likened Romney to Obama and cast both as unacceptable for conservatives. “We already have one president who doesn’t tell the truth to the American people. We

don’t need another,” Santorum said to cheers. “Gov. Romney reinvents himself for whatever the political occasion calls for.” Santorum has hammered Romney for a health care overhaul he signed into law as Massachusetts governor. Santorum’s advisers see the issue as Romney’s biggest weakness among conservatives. They make up the bulk of the Republican Party’s nominating base but have so far split their votes between Santorum and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich. “The worst offender is Gov. Romney. He put the template for Obamacare in place in Massachusetts,” Santorum said. Massachusetts requires citizens to buy health insurance. That mandate is central to Democrats’ national plan, and Santorum called it unconstitutional.

TOPEKA — The Kansas House on Friday advanced legislation that would allow concealed-carry license holders to bring their guns into public buildings, but amendments were approved that would give state universities, hospitals and nursing homes the ability to ban the weap- Andy Tompkins, ons. president and State Rep.

Paul continued speaking, apparently unflustered. He continued to speak of rejecting bailouts and entitlement systems of all kinds, saying “no to bailouts of Wall Street, no to bailouts of European ‘wall streets,’” and “no one is entitled to somebody else’s wealth.” The speech went on to tackle even more personal individual liberty standpoints — issues of drug legalization and access to contraception. “I personally abhor drug use, but it’s about personal choice,” he said on his controversial campaign point to end the so-called war on drugs. “You cannot have the government control what we put in our bodies ... I just want to live my own life and make my own choices.” Paul, an OB-GYN by practice, is pro-life but also admitted prescribing and being a supporter of contraceptives, saying on Friday that the issue that’s been a hot topic for the

of the race in the coming weeks, if not after Tuesday’s contests in Alabama and Mississippi. Gingrich’s advisors had said the former House speaker must win both states to stay in the race. Santorum’s advisers anticipate Gingrich’s conservative supporters would turn to Santorum and perhaps derail Romney’s betterorganized, better-funded political organization. “We feel very confident that we can win Kansas on Saturday and come into Alabama and Mississippi and this race should come down to two people,” Santorum told reporters. And as the race turned South, the Santorum campaign on Friday hammered Gingrich on immigration, an issue likely to play prominently among Southern conservatives. Santorum turned to a key supporter and immigration hawk, former Rep. Tom Tancredo, R-Colo., to criticize Gingrich for supporting legislation that would, among other things, allow some children of illegal immigrants to become citizens. “This is not just an immigration issue but a national security issue — and Newt Gingrich fails our nation on both counts,” Tancredo said, charging that Gingrich would “adopt the policies of the left.” Gingrich told The Associated Press at a campaign stop in Mississippi that win or lose on Tuesday, he’s staying in the race through to the Republican National Convention scheduled for August in Tampa, Fla.

center or any facilities operated by the school. Students get that training elsewhere. But Kathy Ostrowski, of Kansans for Life, disagreed with KU’s assessment. She said, “There is no professional reason that OB-GYN resident physicians have to learn how to destroy unborn children in order to achieve competency in pregnancy management, stillbirth evacuation or treating abortion complications.” She urged people to contact Brownback and legislators “to stop abortion training by KU!”

Democracy in action His views and the vigor of his supporters were clear, though his chances in the election may not be. Throughout the night, speakers encouraged participation in today’s caucuses, which, for Douglas County, take place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Free State High School, 4700 Overland Drive. “It takes an irate minority keen on starting brushfires of liberty,” he said in encouragement of action by supporters. “Freedom is an old idea, tyranny is an old one. When it comes time, tell everyone you want to move forward.” Paul didn’t take questions from the audience, but did allow for a few personal photographs and book-signings backstage, including one with area resident Sean Palmer, a longtime supporter who was pumped up by the libertarian rhetoric. “I’m here to show my absolute support,” Palmer said. “I hope to see (Paul) win Kansas, win the nomination and become the president.” — Reporter Alex Garrison can be reached at 832-7261.

“We’ll clearly do well enough to move on, and I think there’s a fair chance we’ll win. But I just want to set this to rest once and for all: We’re going to Tampa.” Even before he arrived in Kansas, a state his rivals largely overlooked, Santorum signaled strength here. “Since Romney and Gingrich have decided not to campaign in Kansas, we feel pretty confident that we’re going to do well,” Santorum told reporters before leaving Alabama. Despite his anti-Washington message, Santorum faced grumbling from tea party activists for skipping their big rally in the state’s largest city. They spent $25,000 to rent the Century II arena in downtown Wichita and expected 1,000 to 3,000 people to attend. “It seems like it is counterproductive to show up for an event that is going to have 300 people in an airplane hangar instead (of) 3,000 people in a nice setting where you can actually contact and really maybe sway somebody,” said Craig Gabel, the president of Kansas For Liberty, which organized the Wichita event. Rep. Ron Paul of Texas was the only presidential candidate participating in the tea party event. Santorum appeared not to know the timing of the tea party event and said he had to get to a speech Friday evening in Houston, a commitment he said was made months ago.

Senators tout tax plan to bring jobs

BRIEFLY Investigation ongoing in veteran’s death Lawrence police continue to investigate the death of a 27-year-old Iraq veteran and whether it was connected to a fight he was involved in hours before he died. Kim Murphree, a police spokeswoman, said Friday that there was no new information to release. Police said Nicholas J. Sardina died Feb. 25 after medics and officers were called to a medical emergency in the 1500 block of Tennessee Street. Police said through the course of the investigation they determined Sardina Sardina was injured earlier in a physical altercation in the 300 block of West 14th Street. Sardina’s girlfriend said she understood he had been at a party at a house in that block and that he had sent her a text message early on Feb. 25 saying he had a bottle broken over his head. Sardina is from Clarence, N.Y., and he had attended both Kansas and Kansas State universities, where he also played on club hockey teams. He was a sergeant in the Kansas National Guard and served three tours in Iraq from 2006 to 2007 with the Army’s 1st Infantry Division.

The “Kansas Works” plan would allow bioscience companies relocating to Kansas LEGISLATURE to pay no income tax if they forgo other state tax incentives. For manufacturing companies, it would tax the income of new businesses only on sales within the state.

SATURDAY COLUMN

Money will be key factor in presidential campaign By Dolph C. Simons Jr.

Unless there are some major surprises, it appears former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney will be the Republican nominee to challenge Barack Obama for the presidency. The fight between GOP contenders has been fierce, so fierce many wonder whether the dirty laundry and charges and countercharges fired within the field have damaged the chances of the Republican candidate in the main event, the battle for the White House. Only time will tell. However, there is one clear fact emerging from the GOP nomination battle: The availability of money is almost as important and, in some cases, maybe more important than the strength and ability of an individual candidate. At various times during the

months-long GOP race, one candidate or another seemed to be picking up substantial support only to have Romney launch powerful advertising campaigns to knock down or weaken support for a Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, Rick Perry, Ron Paul, etc. Romney’s campaign fund has trumped the best efforts of all those trying to win the party’s nomination. Granted, Romney is an attractive and able candidate, but his powerful, targeted advertising messages have gotten results and stunted the effort of any contenders who seemed to be climbing in the polls. Earlier this week, news stories told of the massive fundraising efforts of President Obama. So far, Obama has held at least 191 formal fundraisers, the most of any previous presidential candidate. Early on, Obama supporters

talked about a $1 billion campaign fund and, even though he already has broken previous fundraising totals, he still has 10 months left in his first term. By comparison, George W. Bush had 173 fundraisers during his entire first term in office, fol-

COMMENTARY lowed by Bill Clinton with 96, George H.W. Bush with 109, Ronald Reagan with 75 and Jimmy Carter with 49. As mean and tough as the Republican primary battle has been, the general election between the GOP nominee and Obama is expected to be even more intense. It’s obvious Obama and his supporters are going all-out to raise record sums for his re-election campaign. He already has headlined 35 events in Washington, 32 in

California and 30 in New York, and he has seven more months to add millions of dollars to his war chest. Romney, or whoever ends up winning the GOP nomination, is going to use every means to raise money, but, chances are, his totals will pale in comparison to what Obama will have at his disposal. Also, Obama has a huge information bank carried over from his first campaign with the names and addresses of millions who have pledged to help in his re-election effort. Another big, and extremely dangerous, element is the political action committees, which will be investing hundreds of millions of dollars in support of either Obama or his challenger. Unfortunately, the public has no way of knowing who is putting the money into these PACs and what favors or policies those

donors expect from the candidate if he wins the big prize, the White House. How does the average voter know who is trying to buy influence, whether it is an individual with millions of dollars or organized labor? The upcoming presidential election is not going to be a pretty picture. The stakes are enormous with Obama committed to making “fundamental changes” in this country and the Republican candidate calling for a smaller government involvement and less control of the lives of Americans and the need to reduce the national debt. What will count the most in the election: the candidate himself and what he believes or which candidate has the biggest checkbook with which to tell his story? And where do the media enter the picture in how they deliver the message of each candidate?

SOUND OFF

Q:

Is there any chance the Douglas/Franklin County line road going west of the new U.S. Highway will ever be paved? This road gets a lot of traffic and is very dusty.

A:

Keith Browning, Douglas County public works director, provided this answer: Neither Franklin County nor Douglas County plans to pave this road in the foreseeable future. Franklin County maintains the road from U.S. 59 to two miles west, while Douglas County maintains the road for the next 1.5 miles west. The latest Douglas County traffic count was 44 vehicles a day about 2.5 miles west of U.S. 59. This represents a very low traffic count that would not justify the cost of paving or maintaining a paved road.

LJWORLD.COM/BLOTTER

LAW ENFORCEMENT REPORT Lawrence police arrested a 32-year-old Edgerton man on outstanding warrants Friday after he was involved in a dispute with his ex-girlfriend, a 24-year-old woman, over the possession of a Ford Taurus Friday morning in west Lawrence. Sgt. Ted Bordman, a patrol supervisor, said the two were involved in an altercation at the intersection of Bob Billings Parkway and Kasold Drive. The woman was in the Ford Taurus with another male friend, and the man was in another car. The dispute continued as vehicles were driving around west Lawrence, and police were called about a road rage complaint. Bordman said the 32-yearold man had run from officers and was caught after a foot chase just before noon in the 1000 block of Biltmore Drive. He suffered lacerations to his hand earlier when it was alleged he broke the window of the Taurus at Bob Billings Parkway and Kasold Drive. Officers were still investigating the incident Friday afternoon because the 32-yearold man alleged he was threatened with a weapon at the intersection. • Douglas County prosecutors have filed four misdemeanor charges against a 70-year-old Baldwin City accused of illegally shooting a decoy deer during a December 2011 sting operation. The sting was conducted by the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism on Dec. 9, the last Friday of the firearm deer hunting season. KDWPT officials had placed the decoy on private land in Douglas County. The officers used a life-size, taxidermied deer to entice would-be poachers. Darrell R. Norris pleaded not guilty during his first appearance Thursday

afternoon, and he later was booked into jail and released on $500 bond. Prosecutors have filed four misdemeanor charges, including criminal hunting alleging he did not have permission to hunt on the land. A hearing is scheduled for April 9. • Douglas County prosecutors have charged a second Lawrence woman in connection with a Jan. 1 battery that occurred in the drivethru lane at Burrito King, 900 Ill., early on New Year’s Day. Kristin E. Silva, 29, appeared in court Friday on an aggravated battery charge in which she’s accused of injuring another Lawrence woman. Prosecutors already charged another Lawrence woman, April Ann Jones, 24, with aggravated battery after she was arrested hours after the altercation, but police said they did not immediately find the second suspect. The victim, a 31-year-old Lawrence woman, alleged the fight began when her vehicle rolled and struck the vehicle in front of her. She alleged two women got out of their vehicle and began hitting her. The victim was taken to Lawrence Memorial Hospital for treatment. Silva’s next hearing is March 13. Jones’ hearing is March 27. • Douglas County prosecutors Friday dismissed aggravated battery and criminal threat charges against a 24-year-old Lawrence man in connection with a January domestic dispute. Dustin A. Johnson was accused of knocking his girlfriend to the ground during an argument on Jan. 3 at a Lawrence apartment. She got away from Johnson, left the apartment and called police. But Cheryl Wright, a spokeswoman for the district attorney’s office, said the victim did not appear in court Friday, so prosecutors asked the judge to dismiss the case.

this year, and are modeled after proposals made in South Dakota, which has been landing financial services companies, and Iowa’s efforts to get insurance companies. Morris said the proposals would reduce revenues to the state from $400,000 at first to $4 million. But Morris, Senate Vice President John Vratil, R-Leawood, and Majority Leader Jay Scott Emler, R-Lindsborg, said the loss would be offset by the benefit from increased jobs and economic activity. The measures have been endorsed by 17 of the Senate’s 32 Republicans. Senate Democratic Leader Anthony Hensley of Topeka said he supports the proposal too. Senate leaders said the bioscience measure would build on the Kansas Bioscience Authority’s mission to invest in research and development of startup companies, and the Kansas University School of Pharmacy’s high national ranking. The manufacturing piece of the plan, they said, would provide a powerful financial incentive for companies to build and hire in Kansas and ship products out of state. The “Kansas Works” proposal is contained in two bills that will be considered next week by the Senate tax committee.

Sunday, said he wanted to do something extra special because it was his last year in elementary school. Sunflower has been participating in the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s annual Pennies for Patients campaign since he was in kindergarten. That’s when doctors found a cancerous tumor draped over his lungs and he was diagnosed with lymphoma. After two years of chemotherapy treatments, wearing a surgical mask and hospital stays, Christian was found to be cancerfree. As his mother, Amanda Faulkner, snapped photos of her son being duct taped, she said it’s hard to believe he was once so sick. “He’s doing so great,” she said. “I love to see him doing stuff like this.” Eve Cummins, student council sponsor, oversaw the duct-taping process. It took 40 minutes and four rolls of tape until they thought it was secure enough to hold the 5-foot, 80-pound student to the wall. And then, Christian waited through a school assembly, where he was recognized at the end. The students hollered and clapped for achieving the

goal and for Christian. Meanwhile, Christian — who could only move his hands and head — said he felt like he was in an ejection seat on an airplane. As the students filed out of the assembly, they went by Christian. Some waved. Some giggled. Some asked questions: “Is that fun?” Others expressed concern: “I hope he doesn’t lose circulation.” “I wonder how long it will take to get the tape off.” Then, the fifth-graders sat on the floor and watched as the chairs were taken out from under him. The tape held him to the wall and everyone cheered, and then within seconds he slowly began to fall and was helped down. It took a mere minute or two to remove all of the tape. “He’s such a good sport,” Hosey said. “Christian is kind of a quiet, shy guy and he has embraced this cause and you can see he’s really passionate about it. We’re really going to miss him when he leaves. He’s been kind of special.” During the past six years, Sunflower School has raised $10,000 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. — Health reporter Karrey Britt can be reached at 832-7190.

U.S. adds 227,000 jobs Deal reached on AFGHANISTAN

REINFORCING IRONWORKERS WITH LOCAL UNION 416 work on the steel mesh for a retaining wall at a construction site in Los Angeles on Tuesday. U.S. employers added 227,000 jobs in February to complete three of the best months of hiring since the recession began. The unemployment rate was unchanged, largely because more people streamed into the work force.

By Christopher S. Rugaber

Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The United States added 227,000 jobs in February, the latest display of the breadth and strength of the economic recovery. The country has put together the most impressive three months of job growth since before the Great Recession. The unemployment rate stayed at 8.3 percent. It was the first time in six months it didn’t fall, and that was because a half-million Americans started looking for work. In the past two months, almost a million have started looking. “I have more optimism,” said Freda Bratcher, 54, who had worked as a substance abuse counselor but has been unemployed 16 months. She had stopped searching, but showed up Friday at a Miami career center after some of her friends landed jobs. “There’s something out there for me,” she said. “And if other people are getting hired, then why not me?” The Labor Department, in its monthly jobs report, said Friday that December and January, already two of the best months for jobs since the recession, were even stronger than first estimated. January job growth was revised higher by 41,000 to 284,000. December job growth was raised by 20,000 to 223,000. The overall job growth for February of 227,000 beat economists’ estimate of 210,000. “It’s a very strong report,” said Bob Baur, chief global economist at Principal Global Investors, an asset management com-

pany. “I could hardly find anything not to like in it.” Since the beginning of December, the country has added 734,000 jobs. The only three-month stretch that was better since the recession ended was March through May 2010, when the government was hiring tens of thousands of temporary workers for the census. Before that, the last stretch that was better was February through April 2006. A three-month gain of 734,000 is roughly what the country was achieving in the late 1990s, although it is less impressive now because the country holds about 40 million more people. Stocks rose after the report came out, though they lost most of their gains later in the day. The Dow Jones industrial average closed up 14 points at 12,922. Last week, it closed above 13,000 for

the first time since May 2008, four months before the financial crisis. The improving jobs picture figures to improve the re-election chances for President Barack Obama and to complicate the political strategy for the Republicans competing for the right to replace him. Obama on Friday visited a manufacturing plant run by Rolls-Royce, a maker of aircraft engines, in Virginia, a state expected to be closely contested in November. He told workers that American manufacturing is adding jobs for the first time since the 1990s. “The economy is getting stronger,” the president said. “When I come to places like this and I see the work that’s being done, it gives me confidence there are better days ahead. I would bet on American workers and American know-how any day of the week.”

prison handover

By Heidi Vogt Associated Press

KABUL, AFGHANISTAN — The U.S. military and the Afghan government sealed an agreement Friday on the gradual transfer of control of the main U.S. prison in the country, a last-minute breakthrough that brings the first progress in months in contentious negotiations over a long-term partnership. The compromise deal came on the day Afghan President Hamid Karzai had set as a deadline for the Americans to hand over the Parwan prison. The agreement gives the U.S. six months to transfer Parwan’s 3,000 Afghan detainees to Afghan control. However, the U.S. will also be able to block the release of prisoners, easing American fears that insurgents

Gingrich: I won’t quit ELLISVILLE, MISS. (AP) — Spurning calls for him to get out, Newt Gingrich insisted Friday that he’ll stay in the race for the Republican presidential nomination even if he loses two Southern primaries next week. “I think there’s a fair chance we’ll win,” the former House speaker told The Associated Press about the contests Tuesday in Alabama and Mississippi. “But I just want to set this to rest once and for all. We’re going to Tampa.” Gingrich said he intended to campaign all the way to the Republican National Convention in August,

or members of the Taliban could be freed and return to the fight. The deal removes a sticking point that had threatened to derail talks that have been going on for months that would formalize the U.S.-Afghan partnership and the role of U.S. forces in Afghanistan after NATO’s scheduled transfer of security responsibility to the Afghan government at the end of 2014. On Thursday, U.S. President Barack Obama and Karzai discussed the stalled security pact talks in a video conference. White House press secretary Jay Carney said the two leaders noted progress toward completing an agreement “that reinforces Afghan sovereignty while addressing the practical requirements of transition.”

Aging gorilla gets bunny companion

ERIE, PA. (AP) — An elderly gorilla that lives at a Pennsylvania zoo has a new companion: a bunny named Panda. The Erie Zoo’s gorilla, Samantha, has been without a full-time friend since the death of Rudy, a male gorilla, in 2005. But officials say the 47-year-old western lowland gorilla is too old to be paired with another gorilla. So they opted last month to introduce her to Panda, a Dutch rabbit, last month.

LAWRENCE ACTIVISTS SHANNON GORRES, RIGHT, and Shona Clarkson spent the week in Lakeland, Fla., fasting with about 150 others. Gorres joined the Coalition of Immokalee Workers in support of the Fair Food Program, which provides wage and condition guidelines for grocery stores.

Lawrence women fast for fair wages By Shaun Hittle sdhittle@ljworld.com

Lawrence activist Shona Clarkson was “really nervous” about participating in her first fast this week in Lakeland, Fla., in support of fair wages for field workers across the country. Six days, only water. But by day five, Clarkson said her body had adjusted, and she was drawing energy from the cause. “Being here all week has just been incredible,” said Clarkson, a Kansas University graduate, who will end her fast today. Clarkson and about 150 other supporters spent the week protesting in front of the headquarters of the national grocery chain Publix. The event, organized by the Coalition of Immokalee Workers, is asking Publix and grocers across the country to sign onto the Fair Food Program, which outlines a variety of guidelines protecting field workers, said Lawrence resident Shannon Gorres, who’s also participating in the fast. With support from the Lawrence community, and particularly Plymouth Congregational Church and Lawrence Fair Food, “our energy is high,” Gorres said. Gorres and Clarkson have spent the week meeting with field workers and camping out together at a local church. Though the action is 1,300 miles away from Lawrence, Gorres said the fight for better conditions for field workers has a local connection. Lawrence Fair Food has been asking the Lawrence community to encourage Dillons Stores, which are owned by the larger grocery chain Kroger, to implement the guidelines from the Fair Food Program. The group has sent representatives to Dillons headquarters in Hutchinson and has picketed outside some Dillons stores. Two national grocery chains — Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods — have so far agreed to the guidelines, Clarkson said. Representatives from Dillons or Kroger could not be reached for comment. For more information about the Fair Food Program and the fast, visit www.ciw-online.org.

BACKGROUND

City commissioners are expected to extend the special use permit for the Lawrence Community Shelter at 10th and Kentucky streets as part of the consent agenda.

A long-simmering family dispute has morphed into a lawsuit against Lawrence-based The University National Bank and its board of directors. Martha Sutherland — a shareholder of University National Bank’s holding company and the sister of University National Bank executive officer Todd Sutherland — has filed a lawsuit in Douglas County District Court alleging improper lending practices and management have cost the bank in excess of $20 million. Todd Sutherland, president and chairman of the bank’s holding company, said he and the board “vigorously oppose” the allegations made in the lawsuit. He characterized the bank as being caught in the middle of a family disagreement that has resulted in Martha Sutherland filing several lawsuits against business holdings of the Sutherland family. — Reporter Shaun Hittle can be “It is part of a longreached at 832-7173.

Johnson; Dolph Simons III; Perry Sutherland; Todd Sutherland; Darrel G. Walters; and Richard Zinn. Simons is an executive with The World Company, which owns the Journal-World.

The ministry administered 1,397 immunizations in 2011, compared with 3,652 in 2009. The ministry would have had to raise prices for the shots from $2 to $10 or more to make it financially feasible, and that’s close to what the county charges. Finney County Health Department Administrator Ashley Goss says she doesn’t expect the influx of new clients to cause any serious problems for her office.

said it was a mutual decision. This week, Sutherland said the threat of the lawsuit likely caused parties in the merger to take pause. University National Bank in 2008 entered into an agreement with the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency to take steps to strengthen the bank’s position. The bank remains under that agreement, and Sutherland said several other banks in the region are under similar regulatory agreements. Sutherland said the bank is making significant progress in complying with the conditions, and has maintained capital levels well above what is needed for a well-capitalized bank. He said the lawsuit should not hamper the bank’s progress in complying with the order. “We have made tremendous progress in complying with the formal agreement and hope to be off of it soon,” Todd Sutherland said. — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362.

As with the Keystone pipeline postponement, as with the debtceiling extension, as with the Afghan withdrawal schedule, Obama wants to get past Nov. 6 without any untoward action that might threaten his re-election.” tanbul because of blatant Iranian stalling and unseriousness. Nonetheless, the new negotiations will be both without precondition and preceded by yet more talks to decide such trivialities as venue. These negotiations don’t just gain time for a nuclear program about whose military intent the IAEA is issuing alarming warnings. They make it extremely difficult for Israel to do anything about it (while it still can), lest Israel be universally con-

demned for having aborted a diplomatic solution. If the administration were serious about achievement rather than appearance, it would have warned that this was the last chance for Iran to come clean and would have demanded a short timeline. After all, President Obama insisted on deadlines for the Iraq withdrawal, the Afghan surge and Israeli-Palestinian negotiations. Why leave these crucial talks open-ended when the nuclear clock is ticking? This re-engagement comes immediately after Obama’s campaign-year posturing about Iran’s nukes. Sunday in front of AIPAC, he warned that “Iran’s leaders should have no doubt about the resolve of the United States.” This just two days after he’d said (to the Atlantic) of possible U.S. military action, “I don’t bluff.” Yet on Tuesday he returns to the very engagement policy that he admits had previously failed. Won’t sanctions make a difference this time,

however? Sanctions are indeed hurting Iran economically. But when Obama’s own director of national intelligence was asked by the Senate intelligence committee whether sanctions had any effect on the course of Iran’s nuclear program, the answer was simple: No. None whatsoever. Obama garnered much AIPAC applause by saying that his is not a containment policy but a prevention policy. But what has he prevented? Keeping a coalition of six together is not success. Holding talks is not success. Imposing sanctions is not success. Success is halting and reversing the program. Yet Iran is tripling its uranium output, moving enrichment facilities deep under a mountain near Qom and impeding IAEA inspections of weaponization facilities. So what is Obama’s real objective? “We’re trying to make the decision to attack as hard as possible for Israel,” an administration official told the Washington Post in the

most revealing White House admission since “leading from behind.” Revealing and shocking. The world’s greatest exporter of terror (according to the State Department), the systematic killer of Americans in Iraq and Afghanistan, the self-declared enemy that invented “Death to America Day” is approaching nuclear capability — and the focus of U.S. policy is to prevent a democratic ally threatened with annihilation from pre-empting the threat? Indeed it is. The new open-ended negotiations with Iran fit well with this strategy of tying Israel down. As does Obama’s “I have Israel’s back” reassurance, designed to persuade Israel and its supporters to pull back and outsource to Obama what for Israel are lifeand-death decisions. Yet 48 hours later, Obama tells a news conference that this phrase is just a historical reference to supporting such allies as Britain and Japan — contradicting the intended impression he’d given

Signs of hope on race relations By Gene A. Budig and Alan Heaps

America continues to change. Over time, ideals that once seemed out of reach become visible on the horizon. This is the case when it comes to race relations. While the process toward a fully integrated society — one absent bias and stereotypes — has been a slow and painful one, two recent stories bring us welcome news. The first story is about Jeremy Lin, the talk of the sports and media worlds. For those few of you who may have been under a rock the last month, Lin is the basketball player who, because of injuries to his teammates, became a surprise starting point guard for the New York Knicks. A 2010 graduate of Harvard and twice cut by professional basketball teams, he has produced a spectacular series of on-court performances. He also is charming, smart, humble, and thoroughly decent. He just happens to be Asian-American. His story has many appealing qualities but perhaps the most important is that it helps put to rest dangerous and inaccurate racial stereotypes. Sports have often led the fight for equal rights. Jerry Reinsdorf, owner of the Chicago White Sox and the Bulls, has said. “Most among us are willing to embrace hardworking people regardless of the color of their skin, and that has been especially true in

LAWRENCE

the world of entertainment and sports, but we must do better across the board,” The second story comes from the Pew Research Center. It tells us Budig that in 2010, 15 percent of all new marriages in the United States were interracial, compared with 7 percent in 1980. Back this up with other information and you have Heaps what appears to be an unstoppable trend. A 2011 Gallup poll tells us that 86 percent of Americans now approve of interracial marriage, compared with 4 percent 50 years ago. The 2010 census tells us that 9 million people describe themselves as being biracial, compared with 6 million in 2000. And by 2050 we will be a majority-minority nation. The truth is that America has been multiracial since colonial times. But narrow-mindedness and fear have too often made many deny it, fight it or try to keep one group first among equals. The result is a record of integration and racial tolerance

too often characterized by injustice, violence and pain, leading to some of our nation’s most shameful behavior. The silver lining, slight as it may be, is that the fight to do what’s right has also produced some of our finest moments. Many in the pantheon of America’s great heroes — Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King and Cesar Chavez — made their brave and eloquent stands in this arena. We cannot erase our past and must never deny it, but we can shape the future. A new world is being made in front of our eyes, and it is one of unlimited potential: a nation rid of bias and racism. It is clear that millions are moving in this direction. A mere 50 years ago, more than half of those polled said they would not vote for an African-American presidential candidate. That barrier has fallen. And stories like the ones about Jeremy Lin and interracial marriage are more proof positive that we continue to move in the right direction. In a world filled with bad news, we should stop for a moment and celebrate this success. But it is imperative to remember that while the ideal is on the horizon, it is not yet firmly in our grasp. — Gene A. Budig was president/ chancellor of three major state universities, including Kansas University, and past president of Major League Baseball’s American League. Alan Heaps is a vice president of the College Board in New York City.

What the Lawrence Journal-World stands for

THE WORLD COMPANY

AIPAC that he was offering special protection to an ally under threat of physical annihilation. To AIPAC he declares that “no Israeli government can tolerate a nuclear weapon in the hands of a regime that denies the Holocaust, threatens to wipe Israel off the map, and sponsors terrorist groups committed to Israel’s destruction” and affirms “Israel’s sovereign right to make its own decisions ... to meet its security needs.” And then he pursues policies — open-ended negotiations, deceptive promises of tough U.S. backing for Israel, boasts about the efficacy of sanctions, grave warnings about “war talk” — meant, as his own official admitted, to stop Israel from exercising precisely that sovereign right to self-protection. Yet beyond these obvious contradictions and walk-backs lies a transcendent logic: As with the Keystone pipeline postponement, as with the debt-ceiling extension, as with the Afghan withdrawal schedule, Obama wants to get past Nov. 6 without any untoward action that might threaten his re-election. For Israel, however, the stakes are somewhat higher: the very existence of a vibrant nation and its 6 million Jews. The asymmetry is stark. A fair-minded observer might judge that Israel’s desire to not go gently into the darkness carries higher moral urgency than the political future of one man, even if he is president of the United States. — Charles Krauthammer is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.

PUBLIC FORUM

Right action To the editor: I would like to commend our police chief, Tarik Khatib, for doing the right thing in dealing with the ticket-fixing matter. Unlike the opinion stated in the Public Forum on March 5, I believe that if the leaders of our community are not held to the highest level of scrutiny, how can we expect anyone else to be held accountable for their actions? This is an issue of morals and ethics, something our society as a whole seems to be lacking. It is time for our leaders to send the message that this is not acceptable, and it starts right here at home! Mary Grob, Lawrence

Word offends To the editor: I was offended by Cathy Hamilton’s repeated use of the word “freaking” in her column in the March 3 edition of the Journal-World. The objectionable word is not only a synonym for a common, vulgar word. It is also sophomoric on the part of a writer of Mrs. Hamilton’s perceived refinement and local fame. Instead of setting a good example for her readers, she has chosen a word used by adolescents to impress their peers. Why? Eva Edmonds, Lawrence

BAYLOR 81, KANSAS 72

KANSAS CENTER JEFF WITHEY LOOKS TO THE BENCH AS BAYLOR GUARD BRADY HESLIP CELEBRATES A BIG THREE-POINTER to widen the Bears’ lead during the second half. Baylor beat KU, 81-72, in a Big 12 tournament semifinal on Friday in Kansas City, Mo.

KU must sweat out NCAA seed By Gary Bedore gbedore@ljworld.com

KANSAS CITY, MO. — Senior point guard Tyshawn Taylor spoke up, breaking the silence in a somber Kansas University basketball locker room Friday night in Sprint Center. “I just told my team once coach walked out that everybody should be disappointed because we shouldn’t have lost,” Taylor said after the Jayhawks’ 81-72 Big 12 tournament semifinal setback to Baylor. “But our goal is not to win the Big 12 tournament championship. Our goal is to win the Big 12 (regular-season) championship, which we have, and the national championship, which we still can. “It sucks to lose any game,” Taylor added of his message to his teammates

If foe looks good, Kansas doesn’t

after the Jayhawks’ sixth loss against 27 victories, “but it’s not the end of the season. It’s not. A lot of teams lose their conference tournaments and go home and still have something to play for. We’ve got to get back in the lab and need to be getting better, not dropping. We’re going to be all right.” The Jayhawks, who will anxiously be awaiting their NCAA Tournament fate on Selection Sunday, believe they know why they are not playing in the Big 12 tourney finals today. As simplistic as it sounds, the Jayhawks believe Baylor (27-6) merely wanted it more. KU blistered the Bears, 92-74 in Lawrence, and 68-54 in Waco, this season. “It’s human nature. How KANSAS FORWARD THOMAS ROBINSON would you feel if somebody LETS HIS FRUSTRATION SHOW after a failed defensive stop by the Jayhawks Please see KANSAS, page 6B during the second half.

KANSAS CITY, MO. — Nothing about the way the teams looked sharing the Sprint Center court made it seem as if the guys who lost were the ones who won the conference and the guys who won were seeded fourth after finishing four games out of first place during an 18-game schedule. Baylor, with a deeper bench and superior deep shooters, took it to Kansas, 81-72, in front of a proKU crowd Friday night in Sprint Center to advance to today’s title game against Missouri. The question after Friday’s Baylor game became not, “How did that happen?” rather, “How did Kansas finish four games ahead of Baylor playing the same schedule?” And: “How did the Bears lose twice to KU by a combined margin of 32 points?”

Tom Keegan tkeegan@ljworld.com

And that’s how it will go for Kansas in March if it shows up in a big building and brings with it an approach that screams, “We’ll do what we do. You do what you do. We’ll count ’em up at the end and see who’s better.” Several teams in the country bring more talented players onto the practice floor on a daily basis than Kansas. Not many compete as consistently hard as the Please see KEEGAN, page 7B

MU routs Texas, reaches title game KANSAS CITY, MO. (AP) — Phil Pressey and Kim English each scored 23 points, leading No. 5 Missouri past Texas, 81-67, Friday night in a bruising Big 12 semifinal. In the championship game today, the second-seeded Tigers (29-4) will meet No. 12 Baylor, which upset No. 3 Kansas, 81-72, in the earlier semifinal, ruining many fans’ dream of a Kansas-Missouri title showdown. The Bears (27-6), swept in two games against Missouri in the regular season, will be seeking

the first championship by a Texas team in the tournament’s 16-year history. Missouri, which is leaving the Big 12 this year for the Southeastern Conference and severing ties with some schools that go back more than 100 years, led almost the entire way while making it three in a row over the Longhorns (20-13). English, a 6-foot-6 senior, was 9-for-9 from the floor when he hobbled into the tunnel after apparently hurting his leg in a collision

with another player. A few minutes earlier, Texas guard J’Covan Brown, the Big 12’s top scorer, went to the bench holding his head after crashing into a cluster of photographers behind the basket. Both stayed out of the game only a few minutes, but English seemed hobbled a bit when he returned. Brown wound up with 21 points after scoring only five in the first half. Phil Pressey, whose previous career high was 22 points, hit his first three

three-point attempts to stake the Tigers to an early lead they never gave up. Marcus Denmon, Missouri’s two-time All-Big 12 guard who had 24 points the night before against Oklahoma State, was 0-for-10 from the floor and scored only two points. His previous season low was six points, against Texas.

Weber dismissed as Illinois coach CHAMPAIGN, ILL. (AP) — Illinois fired Bruce Weber on Friday, letting go of a fiery coach whose first three years with the Illini included a run to the national championship game before a long slide the past six years ended with a 1715 mark this season. “Bruce is everything you’d want as a coach,� Weber athletic director Mike Thomas said. “We had great success here but in the last four or five years, I don’t know if you want to say (that) we’re running in place, or maybe even digressed.� Thomas, who also has fired football coach Ron Zook and

Rolen, Reds turn back Royals, 5-1 GOODYEAR, ARIZ. (AP) — Cincinnati Reds third baseman Scott Rolen fouled off some tough pitches from Vin Mazzaro before hitting an RBI single on Friday. “I will take at-bats like that all year long,� Rolen said. All year long? The Reds would like that very much, too. Rolen’s health is a big key for Cincinnati, which beat the Kansas City Royals, 5-1, on Friday. He played in only 65 games last season and had surgery on his left shoulder in July. Rolen has five hits in nine atbats this spring and appears to be mobile in the field. “I’m not worried about my health or seeing the ball,� he said. “I didn’t go home tired last season. I felt like I didn’t contribute last season.� Reds manager Dusty Baker is thrilled to have Rolen back. Cincinnati sorely missed his presence in the middle of the lineup last season, when it slipped from NL Central champions to 79-83. “Scotty is getting ready,� Baker said. “He’s not there yet but almost.� Royals left-hander Danny Duffy struck out five in two hitless innings in his first spring start. Duffy, who was selected by Kansas City in the third round of the 2007 draft, started 20 games last season after he was recalled May 18. He had problems with the strike zone last year but made adjustments to his delivery. “I dropped my glove a little so my motion is less violent,� Duffy said. “It was a good outing. There is a long way to go but so far the adjustments have worked.� Reds right-hander Homer Bailey, who is competing with Aroldis Chapman for the fifth spot in the rotation, allowed a hit and a walk in three scoreless innings. “Homer threw the ball well,� Baker said. “His velocity and location, everything was good today.� Reds 5, Royals 1 Kansas City ab Dyson cf 3 Robinson cf 1 Giavtlla 2b 3 Seratelli 2b 1 Hosmer dh 3 A.Gordon lf 2 Lough lf 2 S.Perez c 2 C.Clark c 1 Robinson 1b 2 Ramirez 1b 2 L.Cain rf 1 W.Myers rf 1 Kzmanff 3b 2 I.Falu 3b 1 Escobar ss 2 T.Abreu ss 1

women’s basketball coach Jolette Law in his first year on the job, said fans expect the Illini to be “a factor� in the Big Ten and the “national conscience� each season. Weber met separately with reporters, joined by his family and most of his young team. “This is a bottom-line business. We all know it,� Weber said. “It’s the reality of the coaching profession. But I leave here with no regrets. I believe this program is on solid footing. I am very proud of what this basketball program has accomplished in my tenure.� Weber choked up when he thanked his wife, Megan, for being with him “as he lived his dream to be a college basketball coach.� Weber spent nine years at

Illinois and led the Illini to the 2005 NCAA title game, losing to North Carolina. He finished 210101 at Illinois, trailing only Lou Henson and Harry Combes in wins at the school. However, his teams were just 55-66 in the Big Ten over the last six seasons, including 6-12 this year. The Illini closed the year 2-12 and lost in the first round of the Big Ten tournament on Thursday, beaten by Iowa, 64-61 — a far cry from January, when they were atop the Big Ten. Thomas said the school would accept an NIT bid if one is offered and assistant Jerrance Howard is the interim head coach. The athletic director said Howard has expressed interest in staying on as an assistant. A national search for Weber’s replacement will be-

gin immediately, and Virginia Commonwealth coach Shaka Smart, Wichita State coach Gregg Marshall and Butler’s Brad Stephens, among others, all could be candidates for the job. Thomas said he wouldn’t rule out hiring an assistant coach, but said, “I think that there’s a preference for someone who has head coach(!3+%,, ing experience.â€?

Nebraska fires Sadler after last-place finish LINCOLN, NEB. — Nebraska fired coach Doc Sadler on Friday after the team he expected to be his best in his six years at the school posted the program’s lowest win total since 2003. “I’ve decided to make a change in the basketball program,� athletic director Tom Osborne said. “I’ve had to do some difficult things over my lifetime. This may be as difficult as any of them. Doc is a good man, an honorable man, and I consider him a good friend. I thought it was wise at this point to make a change.� In their first season in the Big Ten, the Cornhuskers finished 12-18 after losing 79-61 to Purdue in the first round of the league tournament on Thursday. They tied with Penn State for last place in the conference with a 4-14 record. Sadler wept as he discussed his departure with reporters. “You’re not looking at one of the smarter guys in this business, you’re looking a guy that tried,� he said. “Six years ago when I came here, I meant what I said. I came here to do a job, and this is where I want to be. “That hadn’t changed until today,� he said before leaving the podium for about 20 seconds to collect himself. “I wanted to be the guy that won the first NCAA Tournament game. It didn’t happen. That’s the bottom line. We can all sit here and talk about this that whatever. It all comes down to winning. That’s what it should come down to.� Sadler was 101-89 overall with three NIT appearances at Nebraska but just 34-64 in conference games. In the Huskers’ final five years in the Big 12, Sadler’s teams never finished higher than seventh. Osborne said he and the coaching staff thought the Huskers would be a better team this year. “I gambled, and Doc gambled that this would be a good year,� Osborne said. “Unfortunately, for whatever reason, it didn’t work out that way.� Sadler last spring signed a contract extension through 2015-16 and his salary was $900,000 a year. His contract calls for him to be paid as much as $66,667 a month until he finds another job — up to a total of $3.4 million.

DOC SADLER SPEAKS TO REPORTERS Friday in Lincoln, Neb., after his firing as Nebraska’s men’s basketball coach.

Tiger Woods played bogey-free for a 67 and actually lost ground. He moved up the leaderboard, but is seven shots behind going into the weekend, with 14 players ahead of him. Rory McIlroy, in his first tournament as the new world No. 1, managed a 69 and fell 10 shots off the lead. Former Kansas University golfer Gary Woodland fired a 2-under-par 70 on Friday for a 141 total, nine strokes off the lead.

DORAL, FLA. — Bubba Watson and Justin Rose put on an amazing show of birdies in blustery conditions at Doral, making 17 between them while playing in the same group Friday at the Cadillac Championship. Their duel was decided by Watson’s eagle, giving him a 10-under 62 and a one-shot lead. Watson belted a 3-iron that barely got over a palm tree, carried over the water into the wind and settled 6 feet away on the par-5 eighth for an eagle putt that gave him a one-shot lead over Rose. Mark Wilson, the third in that group, shot a respectable 70 and was just along for the ride. Watson was at 12-under 132 and will get to play again in the final group today with Rose, who had to settle for a 64. Despite the steady wind, there were plenty of low scores on the Blue Monster. The average score was 69.9, close to three strokes easier than the opening round.

Colts make more cuts INDIANAPOLIS — The Indianapolis Colts are saying goodbye to a lot more than just Peyton Manning. The team announced sweeping cuts Friday, releasing running back Joseph Addai, linebacker Gary Brackett, defensive back Melvin Bullitt, tight end Dallas Clark and quarterback Curtis Painter. The players spent a combined 32 years with the Colts, piling up yards, tackles, touchdowns and Pro Bowl appearances.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — The Giants on Friday released running back Brandon Jacobs after seven years in New York. Jacobs, 29, ran for 571 yards and seven touchdowns last season as the Giants won the Super Bowl. He wanted to stay with the champions, but a restructured deal could not be agreed to by both parties, signaling the end of a solid Giants career.

JACKSONVILLE, FLA. — Five Kansas University softball players hit home runs as KU beat down Delaware State, 17-1, on Friday at the Osprey Classic and tied a 1992 school record for consecutive wins, with 17. Mariah Montgomery belted two of the home runs in a 10run fourth Montgomery inning. Fellow Jayhawks Maggie Hull, Liz Kocon and Ma-

rissa Ingle also knocked pitches out of the park. Alicia Pille picked up the run-rule-shortened victory for the Jayhawks, allowing just one unearned run to seven strikeouts in four innings. Pille has not allowed an earned run in 20 innings. In an earlier game on Friday, Ashley Newman’s three hits led the Jayhawks to a 5-2 victory over the Hornets. It was the second time this season that Newman recorded a three-hit performance. Kansas (17-2) will try to win a school-record 18th game in a row at 1:30 p.m.

Griner’s 45 points blister Kansas St. The Associated Press

No. 1 Baylor 86, Kansas State 65 KANSAS CITY, MO. — Nearly every shot Brittney Griner put up before the game clanked off the rim, and the phenom for Baylor was justifiably concerned. “I kept hitting them short,” she said, “and I thought, ‘Oh, I hope this isn’t a sign.’” If it was any kind of sign, it was certainly a good one. Griner set a Big 12 tournament record with a career-high 45 points and had 10 rebounds and seven blocks in the Lady Bears’ rout of Kansas State in the semifinals Friday. Griner finished 19-of28 from the field to better her career scoring mark of 41 points, set in the Lady Bears’ regular-season finale against Iowa State, and got a standing ovation from fans of both teams when she checked out of the game with just over 21⁄2 minutes remaining. “She’s an unbelievable player,” said the Wildcats’ Brittany Chambers. “It’s fun to be on the court with her, I guess now saying it. Not when it’s happening.” Destiny Williams also contributed 12 points and 14 rebounds for Baylor (34-0), which will play defending national champion Texas A&M today as it attempts to become the first program, men’s or women’s, to finish a season 40-0. The Aggies beat Oklahoma, 79-66. Chambers had 18 points to lead Kansas State (1913), which has lost 14 straight to the Lady Bears.

and Clint Chapman. But Michael Dixon answered with back-to-back threepointers and the lead suddenly skied to 16 points with about 61⁄2 minutes left. Pressey had 18 points in the first half, combining with English to score 32 points and send the Tigers into intermission with a 39-32 lead. Pressey was 5 for 7 from behind the arc for the game. Pressey’s fourth threepointer at the 2:59 mark gave Missouri its biggest first-half lead at 39-26. But Myck Kabongo drilled an answering three-pointer and Brown canned a free throw and a 12-footer as the Longhorns ended the half on a 6-0 run.

The fourth-seeded Bearcats (24-9) will meet Louisville in tonight’s championship game at Madison Square Garden. To get there, they ended the 11-game winning streak of the top-seeded Orange (31-2). They did it with an incredible shooting performance over the opening 14 minutes of the game when they took a 17-point lead, and then by holding on as Syracuse was able to get within one point in the final seconds.

BAYLOR 81, KANSAS 72

L AWRENCE J OURNAL -W ORLD

Jayhawks most disappointed in ‘D’ By Jesse Newell jnewell@ljworld.com

KANSAS CITY, MO. — Kansas University guard Conner Teahan was honest when asked what contributed most to his team’s poor defensive effort Friday against Baylor. “I guess airheadedness,” the senior said following KU’s 81-72 loss in the Big 12 semifinals. “I know that there were times where people were not knowing what defense we were in

Kansas CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1B

beat up on you twice?” KU junior guard Elijah Johnson said after scoring 15 points off 6-of-16 shooting (one of six from three).” After all, it’s not as if the Bears have a bad team. BU is ranked 12th in the country, KU third. And yet the Jayhawks easily handled Scott Drew’s crew twice. “They were a little more aggressive. You could tell they wanted this bad. They came out like we would if we lost two games,” noted Taylor, who scored 20 points off 8-of-15 shooting. He hit one of four threes on a night KU made just two of 13 to Baylor’s nine of 19. “I hate that that’s always our excuse, that we came out flat,” Taylor added. “When it’s game time and the ball goes up, you’ve got to be ready. We have to understand that.” Whatever the reason, KU, which rallied from a 14-point deficit (49-35 with 18:39 to play) to grab a two-point lead (58-56 with 10:21 left), faded down the stretch and will be sitting home today while BU plays Missouri in the 5 p.m. final. “I don’t know if overconfidence is the right word. I guess it could be,” said KU coach Bill Self, whose Jayhawks won five of the past six Big 12 tourney titles. “We beat them twice. We had Baylor down over 20 both games we won. “If that is the case, then how immature is that? That’s the thing that bothers me. I’m not buying in to that at all. When you are playing for a championship of any kind, how in the world could that ever be the mind-set? Going into the NCAA Tournament, that can’t be the mind-set. Maybe it’s a good lesson for us.” Taylor scored seven points and Thomas Robinson (15 points) six in an 18-3 run that turned a 5340 deficit into a 58-56 lead at 10:21. BU woke up at that point, embarking on a 19-8 run to build a 75-66 lead at 1:07. Brady Heslip iced three three-pointers (including one that gave the Bears a 59-58 lead) in that stretch. Also, Perry Jones (18 points) contributed eight in that surge. “I think it was a lot more than that,” Taylor said, asked if Heslip’s bombs beat the Jayhawks, “but it came down to him hitting those threes. He’s a great shooter. The first one,

or what we were doing — like, ‘Are we trapping the post or not trapping the post?’” The issues were most evident early, as the Jayhawks allowed 43 firsthalf points to fall behind by eight at the break. That tied for the second-most points given up by KU in a first half this season. “We played no defense in the first half — no defense you could probably say the first 25 minutes and maybe even longer,”

Teahan said. “ ... Fortythree points in a half is not something that we do at all. That’s something that was addressed at halftime.” Baylor’s first-half offense thrived in many areas. The Bears made five of 12 three-pointers (42 percent) and 13 of 29 field goals (45 percent) while also hitting 12 of 14 free throws (86 percent). “We don’t really allow people to shoot like that,

and they definitely played great today,” KU center Jeff Withey said. “They got us out of our comfort zone.” Baylor also was able to snag six first-half offensive rebounds while turning it over just six times in a fast-paced, high-possession half. “They were getting some pretty easy jumpshots,” Teahan said. “I think we just made a lot of mental errors.” A few Jayhawks —

Withey included — said KU didn’t come out with enough energy to start the game. “It was definitely lackadaisical,” Withey said. “We’ve got to get better at that. “In the (NCAA) Tournament, it’s not going to be like the fieldhouse, where there’s 16,300 cheering for you. It’s going to be a lot quieter. There’s not going to be the energy there. For the tournament, we’ve got to get ready every game.”

BU’s 81 points were the most scored by a KU opponent this year in regulation. Missouri scored 86 against KU on Feb. 25, but the Tigers had only 75 points before going to overtime. “We’ve dug ourselves in some holes, not even in terms of the point deficit, but just the way we were playing defense,” Teahan said. “We just were not doing it the way that we should.”

Travis (Releford) had his hand up. We know better than to let him shoot open shots like that.” The Bears, who wore their new, camouflage uniforms for the first time against KU, added another new wrinkle in the third meeting this year: man-to-man defense. “I would rather them play man, honestly,” Taylor said. “I don’t think that was it (reason for defeat) at all. I think defensively we didn’t play our best. They rebounded the ball well (the teams tied 37-37 on the boards) and made big shots when they needed to.” KU All-America candidate Robinson sat out the last five minutes of the first half after picking up his second foul. KU trailed, 43-35, at the break, the lead growing from four to eight with Robinson out. “The reason Thomas came out was because of two fouls,” Self said. “But let’s call it like it is. Withey (Jeff, 11 points, seven boards) and Young (Kevin, five points, five boards) were our best guys the first half. We had so many bad possessions (at the end of the first half). The foul situation was the biggest reason he came out.” KU is expected to be a No. 1 or No. 2 seed and play first-round games in Omaha, Neb., starting Friday. “Our season is not over,” Taylor said. “The exciting thing is it’s just getting started for us. We can learn from this and do some great things.”

NOTEBOOK

Final, not MU, on KU’s minds By Gary Bedore gbedore@ljworld.com

KANSAS CITY, MO. — There will be no third meeting between Kansas and Missouri this college basketball season ... unless the squads meet in the NCAA Tournament. Jayhawk coach Bill Self was asked Friday if there was any relief in not having to “deal with all the emotion that goes into a game like that?” “Zero,” Self said after the Jayhawks’ 81-72 Big 12 semifinal loss to Baylor in Sprint Center. Baylor will meet Missouri in today’s 5 p.m. final. “I would rather be playing Saturday regardless of who we would be playing against, whether it be Texas or Missouri,” Self added. “But I didn’t come over here thinking about the rivalry or anything like that. What we were trying

to do was just win and focus on whatever would be the case tomorrow. So we had two epic games with them this year. Two epic games. And it’s unfortunate it (rivalry) is going to end.” Junior Travis Releford said, “No,” when asked if he was especially disappointed KU would not be meeting MU in the final. “We just wanted to win today. It would have been nice, though,” he added. O

One or two seed?: Self said he did not know if KU would receive a No. 1 or 2 seed in the NCAA Tournament on Sunday. “We hurt ourselves tonight if our goal is to be a No. 1 seed,” he said. It’s believed KU will play first- and secondround games in Omaha, Neb., on Friday and (if KU wins the first game) Sunday. After that, KU could

still land a spot in the regional in St. Louis. Phoenix has been listed as another possibility. “I don’t know if it’s an advantage or not to play in St. Louis,” Self said. “We’d have to win two games to play in St. Louis. If we win two games, I couldn’t care less where we play.” O

Taylor makes cut: KU senior Tyshawn Taylor on Friday was named one of five finalists for the Bob Cousy Award, which goes to the country’s top point guard. There had been controversy when Taylor was left off the organization’s midseason watch list. Other finalists: Isaiah Canaan, Murray State; Matthew Dellavedova, Saint Mary’s; Damian Lillard, Weber State and Kendall Marshall, North Carolina. “I’m glad I’m on the list. I’m glad they noticed

me. Those are some good point guards,” Taylor said. O

Stats, facts: KU is 4-4 this season when trailing at halftime, including an 0-2 mark at Sprint Center. ... KU had won seven straight games in the Big 12 tourney. ... KU is 18-3 against Baylor and 10-2 under Self. ... Kansas went on a 20-5 run during an eightminute stretch in the second half, which turned an 11-point Baylor lead into a two-point Jayhawk advantage. ... A total of four Jayhawks (Thomas Robinson, Jeff Withey, Taylor and Elijah Johnson) were in double-digits, marking the 14th time KU has had at least four players with 10 or more points in a game. ... Taylor’s 20 points moved him into sole possession of 19th place on the KU all-time scoring list, passing Tony Guy and Bud Stallworth with his 1,503 career points.

Ex-KU star Hoag dies By Tom Keegan tkeegan@ljworld.com

games of the season. But there were a few guesses. “We saw all the advertisements coming into the tournament, ‘It’s gonna be Kansas versus Missouri,’” Heslip said. “We used that as motivation. When we got that first win (against Kansas State on Thursday), we were playing with a different mind-set, and we were confident.” Jackson’s answer was simpler. “We know what time of year it is,” he said. Baylor (27-6) will face Missouri (29-4) at 5 tonight for the tourney title.

Charlie Hoag, a football star and member of the 1952 national-championship basketball team at Kansas University, died Thursday at the age of 81 at KU Medical Center in Kansas City, Kan. Hoag, 81, was born in Oak Park, Ill., and spent his final years in Lawrence after moving from Topeka. An All-Big Seven halfback in 1950 and 1952, Hoag tore a knee ligament in a football game at Kansas State during his senior year, an injury that also ended his basketball career. H o a g contributed nine points and four rebounds off the bench Hoag in the ’52 title-game victory against St. John’s. He and six KU teammates played on the United States gold-medal-winning Olympic basketball team in 1952. “We won the national championship in 1952, and my senior year (1953) we got beat by one point (against Indiana) for the national championship, and we all knew that if Charlie had played we would have had another national championship,” teammate Al Kelley said Friday from his Sprint Center seat. “Charlie was known throughout the Big Seven for his quickness, desire to win. He was really a competitive giant, respected by all of his teammates as well as other teams.” An Olympic gold medalist and national champion in basketball, Hoag was known as an even better football player. Hoag was captain of the football team as a senior. “In those days, they couldn’t repair the ligament injury he had,” former KU basketball star and assistant coach Jerry Waugh said. “In my opinion, he would have had a great career in professional football. He was about 6-foot-3, 190 pounds and had great speed, great quickness. He wasn’t as skilled at basketball, but he was just a wonderful athlete and therefore was part of a team that won a national championship.” After retiring from the insurance business in Topeka, Hoag eventually moved to Lawrence, where he enjoyed watching his grandson Chase Hoag play basketball for Free State High.

he made four of six with Travis Releford on him most of the time. Kansas had battled back from a 14-point deficit to take a two-point lead when Heslip’s three-pointer with 9:07 put Baylor up, 59-58. The Bears never trailed again, and it was two more daggers from Heslip, with 2:06 and 1:18, that cut the deepest. After one of them, on which Releford left him to help out, team leader Tyshawn KANSAS COACH BILL SELF CALLS FOR THE Taylor, who didn’t have JAYHAWKS TO FOUL a Baylor player with little time any trouble remembering remaining. the scouting report, gave Releford an earful. energy.

if we got through the back screen quicker on the backscreen/fade-screen play they ran, maybe we could have released and got to the shooter quicker. I don’t know. I’ll have to watch the tape. But that definitely went against the scouting report.” What did Baylor do to get him so open? “I guess ran back screens and had us help a little bit and that gave him space,” Releford said. “We gave him space we shouldn’t have given him.” Self has made a nice living on getting quick players to play rugged defense. He knows there is no secret to what makes this team click and what makes it vulnerable. “We gotta guard,” Self said. “We don’t guard. Let’s just call it like it is. We don’t guard. This has to be a team that makes other people play poorly.”

Baylor bomber’s treys sink KU By Matt Tait mtait@ljworld.com

KANSAS CITY, MO. — It might not have been a career night for Baylor guard Brady Heslip in the box score, but it definitely was as important a night as he ever had experienced. After attempting just five shots and making one during a combined 44 minutes of playing time in his first two match-ups with Kansas University this season — both Baylor losses — the 6-foot-2 gunner from Burlington, Ontario, made four of seven shots Friday night, including four of six from three-point range, to help the fourth-seeded Bears knock off top-seeded Kansas, 81-72, at Sprint Center. Heslip finished with 12 points in 33 minutes, a modest line by most standards, but the triples he made proved to be backbreaking for Kansas (276), including two daggers during the game’s final three minutes. The first, a bomb from the left wing, pushed Baylor’s lead from 67-64 to 70-64 with 2:06 to play. The next, a pure swish from the opposite wing, gave the Bears’ a 73-66 lead with 1:18 remaining. After each, Heslip responded with a move Jayhawk fans have seen from KU senior Tyshawn Taylor more than a few times this season — right hand makes a circle with index finger and thumb, leaving

Added point guard Pierre Jackson, who scored 13 points and dished seven assists: “Once we all are

I’m glad he hit both of those threes. We needed them.” It’s hard to say exactly why the Bears picked now to reveal two of their best

OKLAHOMA CITY’S NICK COLLISON, RIGHT, draws a foul from Cleveland’s Ramon Sessions. Former Kansas University standout Collison had two points and six rebounds in the Thunder’s 96-90 loss Friday night in Oklahoma City. Pistons 86, Hawks 85 AUBURN HILLS, MICH. — Tayshaun Prince made a driving left-handed shot with 24.3 seconds remaining, and Detroit held on to beat Atlanta. Detroit wasted a 12-point fourth-quarter lead and trailed by one after Jeff Teague’s layup with 36.6 seconds to play, but Prince answered and Atlanta’s Joe Johnson missed a contested shot from the left corner in the final seconds. Josh Smith came up with the rebound for the Hawks and sank a fadeaway that was immediately waived off for coming after the buzzer. The call was upheld after a video review.

Lakers 105, Timberwolves 102 MINNEAPOLIS — Kobe Bryant scored 34 points, and Andrew Bynum added 26 points and 10 rebounds to lift Los Angeles past Minnesota. Bynum dominated the smaller Wolves down low and Bryant made four free throws in the final 16 seconds for the Lakers, who beat the Timberwolves for the 18th straight time. Derrick Williams had 22 points and 10 rebounds and Nikola Pekovic had 25 points and 13 boards for the Wolves, who found out less than 30 minutes before the game that leading scorer and rebounder Kevin Love could not play because of back spasms.

The Cavaliers scored their first consecutive road wins of the season by turning the normally fast-breaking Thunder into a half-court team. Oklahoma City converted only three transition baskets until trying to make a dramatic comeback in the final minute.

Summer travel planning in winter? Not so crazy NEW YORK (AP) — Hoping to get a good deal on summer travel? Start planning now. The official start to spring is still two weeks away, but airfares for summer are rising fast.

 Study early: Start looking for a summer airfare about three months ahead of time (That’s right around ... now.) If the fares seem too rich for your blood, don’t panic. Just because fares are higher than last year doesn’t mean they won’t fall between now and your summer vacation. If you’re worried about waiting, use this trick: Select the flight you want and start booking it online. When you hit the point where you select a seat, look at the seat map. If it’s still fairly empty, wait. It’s likely the airline will lower prices to fill those seats. Another trick: If you search repeatedly for the

same flight over a couple of days, clear the “cookies” from your web browser. They’re small data files that let a website remember things about you the next time you visit. If you don’t clear them, you might see higher airfares than someone searching that fare for the first time. The option to clear cookies is often found in your browser’s “Tools” menu.

Shop around: All travel booking websites are not created equal. Some may offer lower prices than others. There are also benefits to visiting different types of sites. Expedia and Orbitz offer package deals that can save you hundreds of dollars if you’re booking a hotel or rental car together with airfare.

 Be flexible: Don’t just compare airlines. It’s important to compare airports, too. A longer drive might be worth it for a cheaper fare.

Dear Annie: “John” and I have been married for 15 years. He is a wonderful person and a great father to our two young girls. Our relationship is fine on the surface, but it’s emotionally empty. There is little intimacy, which has been an issue throughout our marriage. It manifests itself periodically in arguments that never seem to get resolved. John refuses to go to counseling. He wonders why I cannot “just be happy,” because from his perspective, everything is fine. I have told him clearly that I need more attention and affection, but I have come to the realization that he is “just not that into me.” I have tried counseling on my own, but I was told to accept things as they are or end the marriage. Annie, I love my family. I am not asking for a magical romance. I don’t think

Palin has more depth in ‘Game’ The HBO movie adaptation of “Game Change” (8 p.m. Saturday), the 2010 best-seller about the 2008 presidential election, offers a three-dimensional and often sympathetic look at Sarah Palin. Julianne Moore’s portrayal elevates the former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate beyond the realm of Tina Fey punch line to show how exciting, attractive and breathtakingly original Palin seemed when she first emerged in the public limelight. The folks who “discovered” Palin soon became weary and concerned, and then genuinely frightened, by her arrogant absence of curiosity and eagerness to resort to a brand of demagoguery that repelled her running mate, Sen. John McCain (Ed Harris). Look for Woody Harrelson as Steve Schmidt, a hard-boiled strategist for McCain. Eager to shake up a campaign all but eclipsed by Barack Obama’s momentum, Schmidt encourages a bold move, a course that leads to Palin’s selection after a very brief vetting process. Moore’s performance as Palin during the early days of her campaign is electric. She reminds us how Palin connected to many voters, most notably mothers of children with special needs. Sarah Paulson (“American Horror Story”) stars as senior adviser Nicolle Wallace, who grows increasingly exasperated by Palin’s inability to focus and her jaw-dropping lack of knowledge or interest in basic history, law and policy. ‘‘Game Change” will remind many of the 1957 Elia Kazan movie “A Face in the Crowd,” a film that is dominated by an outsized personality (Andy Griffith), but is really about a more thoughtful background character (Patricia Neal) traveling a cynical road on the way to discovering the limits of compromise and idealism. “A Face in the Crowd” remains a masterpiece and a touchstone. “Game Change” comes close.

Review of Olive Garden becomes Internet sensation By Dave Kolpack Associated Press

FARGO, N.D. — A North Dakota newspaper columnist sat down to review her town’s hot new Italian restaurant, rhapsodizing about the chicken Alfredo, crisp g r e e n s and “two long, warm b r e a d sticks.” But because the restaurant was the Ol- Hagerty ive Garden, Marilyn Hagerty’s earnest assessment swiftly became an Internet sensation, drawing comments both sincere and sarcastic from food bloggers and others. For the 85-yearold Hagerty, the response was bewildering — and it threatened to make her late for a bridge game. Hagerty’s column in the Grand Forks Herald focuses on local food, and in North Dakota that means chain restaurants that are shunned by big-city food

critics. She’s reviewed Ruby Tuesday, Pizza Ranch, Applebee’s and Country Kitchen. Even fast-food joints such as KFC, Qdoba and Subway have undergone scrutiny. But it was her unfailingly polite prose about the Olive Garden — complete with a detailed description of the bustling waiters — that catapulted her to online stardom, at least briefly. “At length, I asked my server what she would recommend,” Hagerty wrote in the column called Eatbeat published Wednesday. “She suggested chicken Alfredo, and I went with that. Instead of the raspberry lemonade she suggested, I drank water.” The Olive Garden is “the largest and most beautiful restaurant now operating in Grand Forks,” she concluded. “It attracts visitors from out of town as well as people who live here.” By Friday morning, her appraisal had received more than 290,000 hits on the newspaper’s website. The second most-read story — a report about the

University of North Dakota’s Fighting Sioux nickname — got a mere 5,500 views. “I do not get it,” Hagerty said Friday. “I mean, I’m sitting here minding my own business yesterday morning, trying to get my Friday column finished off so I could go play bridge. And all of a sudden, all hell breaks loose.” Within hours of appearing, the piece was spreading rapidly across the Web. “She writes five columns a week, and they are all this sort of this very direct, no-nonsense approach to what’s going on,” said Mike Jacobs, publisher of the newspaper. “She has her detractors, but she’s very popular. She’s a real asset to the Herald.” Hagerty said she was surprised by the reaction. She called her son, Wall Street Journal reporter Bob Hagerty, to ask what it meant to “go viral.” Hagerty, whose late husband, Jack, was the longtime editor of the Herald, has been writing for the paper for six decades.

Price range wide for birth control By Lauran Neergaard Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Birth control that you must take every single day? A more goof-proof option that costs a lot upfront but then works for several years? Or something in between? A woman’s choice may come down to her wallet: The price of birth control varies dramatically. Just the pill has a huge range, from $9 a month for generics to $90 a month for some of the newest brands, plus a yearly doctor’s visit for the prescription. Want a once-a-month option? The patch or ring could run you $55 monthly. Even more reliable are so-called long-acting types, those IUDs or implants that can last years but can cost $600 to nearly $1,000 for the doctor to insert. That’s if you don’t have insurance that covers at least some of the tab — although many women do. And if those prices are too much, crowded public clinics offer free or reduced-price options. But it might take a while to get

an appointment. Questions about cost and access to birth control have been swirling for weeks now, intensifying after a Georgetown University law school student testified before congressional Democrats in support of a new federal policy to pay for contraception that she said can add up to $1,000 a year, not covered by the Jesuit college’s health plan. Talk show host Rush Limbaugh’s verbal assault on her comments became the latest skirmish in the birth control wars. Soon, the new policy will make contraceptives available free of charge as preventive care, just like mammograms, for women with most employer-provided health insurance. Churches are exempt. But for other religious-affiliated organizations, such as colleges or hospitals, their insurance companies would have to pay for the coverage, something that has triggered bitter political debate. A major study of nearly 10,000 women that’s under way in St. Louis provides a tantalizing clue

about what might happen when that policy takes effect. Consider: Nearly half of the nation’s 6 million-plus pregnancies each year are unintended. Rates of unplanned pregnancies are far higher among lowincome women than their wealthier counterparts. Among the reasons is that condoms can fail. So can birth control pills, if the woman forgets to take them every day or can’t afford a refill. Only about 5 percent of U.S. women use the most effective contraceptives — a matchstick-sized implant named Implanon or intrauterine devices known as IUDs. Once inserted, they prevent pregnancy for three, five or 10 years. But Dr. Jeffrey Peipert of Washington University in St. Louis says many women turn them down because of a higher upfront cost that insurance hasn’t always covered — even though years of pills can cost as much. “How can we cover Viagra and not IUDs?” wonders Peipert, who is leading the new study.

BUSINESS AT A GLANCE

Notable

The nation’s largest private prison company made an enticing offer to 48 states that went something like this: We will buy your prison now if you agree to keep it mostly full and promise to pay us for running it over the next two decades. Despite a need for cash, several states immediately slammed the door on the offer, a sign that privatizing prisons might not be as popular as it once was. Corrections Corporation of America sent letters to the prison leaders in January, saying it had a pot of $250 million to buy facilities as part of an investment. The company is trying to capitalize on the landmark deal it made with Ohio in the fall by purchasing a facility, the first state prison in the nation to be sold to a private firm. Prison departments in California, Texas and Georgia all dismissed the idea. Florida’s prison system said it doesn’t have the authority to make that kind of decision and officials in CCA’s home state of Tennessee said they aren’t reviewing the proposal. The states refused to say exactly why they were rejecting the offer.

Greece secures biggest debt deal in history By Elena Becatoros and Gabriele Steinhauser Associated Press

ATHENS, GREECE — Greece’s private creditors agreed Friday to take cents on the euro in the biggest debt writedown in history, paving the way for an enormous second bailout for the country to keep Europe’s economy from being dragged further into chaos. Greece would have risked defaulting on its debt in two weeks without the agreement, sparking turmoil in the markets and sending shock waves through the other 16 countries that use the euro. Prime Minister Lucas Papademos called the deal — which shaves some $138 billion off Greece’s $487 billion debt load — an important “historic success” in a televised address to the nation Friday night. “For the first time, Greece is not adding but taking debt off the backs of its citizens.” The country said 83.5 percent of private investors holding its government debt had agreed to a bond swap, taking a cut of more than half the face value of their investments as well as accepting softer repayment terms for Greece. The swap aiming to turn around the country’s debt-ridden economy was a key condition to secure a $172 billion rescue package from other eurozone countries and the International Monetary Fund. The managing director of the Institute of International Finance, which negotiated the deal with Greece for large investors, called the bond swap “the largest ever” debt restructuring. “This has been painful and the pain is not over yet. But I now can see light at the end of the tunnel for the Greek economy,” Charles Dallara told Greece’s Mega television. He estimated Greece

could return to the markets “within a few years.” If recovery continues, “I think the risk for Greece and the risk on the eurozone will be very manageable,” he said. Of the investors holding the $234 billion in bonds governed by Greek law, 85.8 percent joined. The deadline for those owning foreign-law bonds was extended to March 23. Creditors holding Greeklaw bonds who refused to sign up will be forced into the deal. The decision to force losses on some bondholders means that the debt relief will trigger payouts of so-called credit default swaps, a type of insurance on bonds. The International Swaps and Derivatives Association, the private organization that rules on such cases, said its committee ruled that a “restructuring credit event” occurred. When the debt relief plan was first announced last year, eurozone leaders and the European Central Bank worked hard to avoid a credit event because they feared the payout of credit default swaps could destabilize big financial institutions that sold them. But since then, that prospect has started to look less threatening. The ISDA said that if triggered, overall payouts will be significantly below the $3.2 billion in net outstanding credit default swap contracts linked to Greece. The exact level of payouts will be determined on March 19. The Fitch ratings agency downgraded Greece to “restricted default” over the bond swap — a move that had been expected. Fitch was the third agency to downgrade Greece into default, after Moody’s and Standard & Poor’s. The agencies are expected to raise the country’s credit rating after the completion of the swap.
