A driving force

Taylor helps KU subdue CU, reach title game

Tom Keegan

Kansas can count on Reed

By Gary Bedore

K A N S A S C I T Y , M O . — Kansas University junior point guard Tyshawn Taylor had only been in the game 15 seconds Friday night when he heard a familiar voice booming instructions in his direction. “Drive it ... drive it!” coach Bill Self bellowed at the 6-foot-3, 185pounder, who was more than willing to obey coach’s commands against Colorado in a Big 12 tournament semif inal in Sprint Center. Taylor, who subbed for Elijah Johnson just 1:08 into the game, took the ball to the hole aggressively in KANSAS his 29-minute VS. TEXAS stint, scoring 15 points while Who: Texas (27-6) dishing four vs. Kansas (31-2) assists against four turnovers When: 5 p.m. in KU’s 90-83 today Where: Sprint victory. “I heard his Center, Kansas words. It’s City, Mo. exactly what I TV: ESPN (cable did,” said Tay- channels 33, 233) lor, who hit four of seven shots and seven of eight free throws on a night KU made 29 of 33 charities. “He told us at the timeout (at 18:52 with KU already down, 6-0), ‘We’ve got to play faster.’ He told us that last night. He told us today before we went out there we’ve got to play faster I tried to come off the bench and play with energy.” He had his best scoring night since a 15-point outing against UMKC on Jan. 15. “I mean, that could be me,” Taylor said, asked if the slashing player is “the real Tyshawn.” “I’ve got to be more aggressive, but I feel I picked my spots today. I still turned it over too much, but I thought I played pretty well.” Self has come to expect a lot from former starter Taylor, who has come off the bench in four straight games since serving a two-game suspension. “That’s what he should do all the time,” Self said of Taylor taking the ball to the basket. “With Elijah, we play side to side a lot, which is fine. That means you have to get the ball in the paint off the pass. With Tyshawn in the game, you can get the ball in the paint off the bounce. It adds

KANSAS GUARD TYSHAWN TAYLOR (10) HANGS FOR A SHOT over Colorado defenders Nate Tomlinson (1) and Marcus

Please see KANSAS, page 4A Relphorde. The Jayhawks beat the Buffs, 90-83, in a Big 12 tournament semifinal game Friday in Kansas City, Mo.

KANSAS CITY, MO. — On a night Kansas University, the nation’s second-ranked basketball team, defeated Colorado, 90-83, Friday in the Sprint Center and ran its record to 31-2 and its twoyear mark to 64-5, it rode its preferred inside-out approach to scoring. Balance and depth of talent make coach Bill Self’s teams hard to guard year in and year out. Still, even though balance is the goal, it’s always nice to have one player the team knows it can count on to deliver the big shot when things get a little dicey. Long before he hit the threepointer that sent the nationaltitle game into overtime three years ago, Mario Chalmers had established that sort of trust from teammates. Tyrel Reed’s that guy on this year’s team. “I think Tyrel’s more of a spot-up-and-we’ll-get-you-theball-type shooter,” teammate Brady Morningstar said. “Mario had the ball in his hand and would come off a screen-androll and pull up and hit a shot, but both those guys have hit a ton of big shots. And I think on this team, if we need a three, it’s probably going to Tyrel.” Tyshawn Taylor, who in having a big night off the bench had no trouble getting to the paint and making things happen by scoring, dishing to teammates and getting to the free-throw stripe, knew where to send the ball late when hard-to-kill Colorado kept hanging around. Taylor found Reed twice late for three-point shots, and Reed made both of them, pushing a nine-point lead to 12 points both times. The first came from the right corner with 4:22 remaining, the second from the left corner with 2:14 left. For a guy who doesn’t have the basketball in his hands very often, Reed certainly knows how to impact a game. He either takes an open shot, keeps the ball moving with a quick pass or makes a quick decision Please see KEEGAN, page 5A

Texas sweeps into championship game By Doug Tucker Associated Press Sports Writer

KANSAS CITY, MO. — With threegame sweeps this season of both Oklahoma and Texas A&M, No. 10 Texas has already accomplished something it had never done before. Now, with No. 2 Kansas looming today in the Big 12 title game, the Longhorns have a chance to do something else for the first time. If they beat the No. 2 Jayhawks, they’ll be the first team from the Lone Star State to capture the

championship in the 15-year history of the Big 12 tournament. “It would mean a lot,” said Texas guard J’Covan Brown, who had 14 points Friday night in a 7058 semifinal victory over Texas A&M. “We have to go out there and have fun, like coach said. If we execute, everything else will take care of itself.” Jordan Hamilton scored 17 points, and second-seeded Texas (27-6) had four players in double figures while beating the thirdseeded Aggies (24-8). “Each time we played (A&M) the scoring margin got closer

and closer,” Texas freshman Tristan Thompson said. “We knew this game was not going to be a blowout. They were playing to play in the game tomorrow, so we knew we had to come out and play our best game ever.” Thompson, the Big 12 freshman of the year, had 14 points and 13 rebounds for Texas, which finished second to Kansas in the regular-season Big 12 race but beat the Jayhawks 74-63 in January, snapping their 69-game home court winning streak. Cory Joseph scored 10. In the second half, Brown,

Thompson and Hamilton scored 31 of Texas’ 40 points. Then, when the game was all but decided, Gary Johnson scored the Longhorns’ last six points. Khris Middleton had 18 points and eight rebounds for A&M. “For us to get where we want to be as a program, where we think we belong, we’ve got to beat a team like Kansas or Texas,” Texas A&M coach Mark Nick Krug/Journal-World Photo Turgeon said. “We’ve got to play 40 minutes, not 37 or 32 or what- TEXAS A&M FORWARD KHRIS MIDDLETON (22) ever we’ve done.” drives against Texas forward Jordan Hamilton.

Labor talks dissolve; players locked out W A S H I N G T O N (AP ) — Unable to decide how to divvy up $9 billion a year, NFL owners and players put the country’s most popular sport in limbo Friday by breaking off labor negotiations hours before their contract expired. The union decertified; the league imposed a lockout. Ten players, including MVP quarterbacks Tom Brady and Peyton Manning, sued the owners in federal court in Minneapolis. Then, at midnight, the owners locked out the players, two people with knowledge of the league’s decision told the Associated Press — signaling the NFL’s first work stoppage since 1987. One of the people told the AP that the league informed all 32 teams and the union about the move shortly before 12 a.m.

Both spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to release the information. Despite two extensions to the collective bargaining agreement during 16 days of talks overseen by a federal mediator — and previous months of stop-and-start negotiating — the sides could not agree on a new deal. Now they will be adversaries in court: The players already requested an injunction to block a lockout, even before one was in place. As was clear all along, the dispute came down to money. In the end, it appeared the sides were about $185 million apart on how much owners should get up front each season for certain operating expenses before splitting the rest of the revenues with players — a

far cry from the $1 billion that separated the sides for so long. But the NFL Players Association refused to budge any further without getting detailed financial information for each team. “I would dare any one of you to pull out any economic indicator that would suggest that the National Football League is Smith falling on hard times,” NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith said. “The last 14 days, the National Football League has said, ‘Trust us.’ But when it came time for verification, they told us it was none of our business.” By dissolving and announcing it



UConn’s Walker MVP, yet again By Greg Logan Newsday

NEW YORK — If Jim Calhoun had expanded his scope just a little bit, the Connecticut coach would have crowned Kemba Walker MVP of the Universe. And after what we all have witnessed the past four days at Madison Square Garden, who could argue? Maybe Calhoun is a better coach than a publicist, but as it was, he did a pretty good job of making a case for Walker as national player of the year even if that award in the Big East went to Notre Dame’s Ben Hansbrough. Poor Ben. He’s terrific, but this week in Big East Tournament history always will be remembered as the Kemba Walker Show. No one, and I mean no one, ever has dominated a college conference tournament the way Walker has this one. His numbers against Syracuse on Friday included 33 points, 12 rebounds, five assists and six steals in 45 minutes. Oh yes, and UConn’s fourth victory in four days, this one 76-71 in overtime to put the Huskies into tonight’s final. When Calhoun arrived in the interview room with Walker and forward Alex Oriakhi in tow, he carefully handed out plaudits to his team but saved the best for last. With a sigh and a shake of his head, Calhoun said: “The Most Valuable Player in America, bar none, not even close, no question. Tell me the other guys who were getting 12 rebounds and six steals?” You know, as a 6-1 point guard to go with your 33 points and five assists. Calhoun said he’s never seen a player Walker’s size dominate a game inside and out the way he did against Syracuse. “He is the one Most Valuable Player in the United States. I think he’s the Most Valuable Player of any college team in America, and I’m going to keep saying it. You’ve gotten a chance to witness what we have witnessed over the past 30-some games.” Back in 2006, Syracuse guard Gerry McNamara had himself the greatest Big East Tournament ever to that point, hitting three game-winning shots and passing for a fourth winner. Orange star Eric Devendorf set the tournament scoring record three years later with 84 points in four games. But Walker has gone beyond those achievements. In four games, Walker has 111 points, beating the previous record by 27, and according to ESPN, that is the most points anyone ever has scored in a conference tournament. And Walker has one game left to play. Big East officials still are doing the research, but they don’t believe any team ever has played five games in five days as Connecticut was required to do if it wanted to play for the title. It has been a daunting task, but it’s one Walker has embraced. He explained it as a function of the Huskies’ determination to rededicate themselves after losing the regular-season finale at home to Notre Dame. The only sour note so far for Walker came when Syracuse’s Scoop Jardine made his second straight three-pointer with 4.6 seconds left to send the game to overtime tied at 68. Naturally, it raised the specter of UConn’s six-overtime loss to Syracuse two years ago. “I was mad when it went into the first overtime,” Walker said. “I thought about the six-overtime game, and I want to get the win in that first OT.” UConn got it done, and now Walker has 111 points in 165 minutes of play. Only 40 more to go.

no longer represents the players in collective bargaining, the union cleared the way for class-action lawsuits against the NFL, which opted out of the CBA in 2008. The antitrust suit — forever to be known as Brady et al vs. National Football League et al — attacked the league’s policies on the draft, salary cap and free-agent restrictions such as franchise-player tags. Invoking the Sherman Act, a federal antitrust statute from 1890 that limits monopolies and restrictions on commerce, the players are seeking triple the amount of damages they’ve incurred. That means the stakes here could be in the hundreds of millions. It could take a month for there to be a ruling on the union’s injunction request, and antitrust judgments should take longer.

Helton rallies Rockies past Royals SCOTTSDALE, ARIZ. — Todd Helton is looking more like the hitter who owns a career .324 batting average. Last year’s subpar effort appears to be an aberration. Helton collected two hits and drove in a run, helping the Colorado Rockies rally for a 4-3 victory in 10 innings over the Kansas City Royals on Friday. He has reached base safely in each of his last five at-bats, including four straight hits. “I have some things I am working on,” Helton said. “Keeping a good posture when I’m hitting and basically getting at-bats. I’m feeling comfortable with my swing.” Helton raised his spring average to .417 and has three doubles and driven in three runs. Alex Gordon and Mike Aviles each hit a home run for the Royals, who lost for the first time in four games. Royals starter Luke Hochevar gave up two runs on four hits in 32⁄3 innings with three strikeouts and a walk.

BASEBALL CEO Greenberg leaving Rangers ARLINGTON, TEXAS — Texas Rangers CEO and managing partner Chuck Greenberg is leaving the organization after only seven months, a surprising move just three weeks before the AL champions open the season. In a statement released Friday by the team, Greenberg indicated that he, team president Nolan Ryan and the co-chairmen of the board “have somewhat different styles” and weren’t able to work through their differences.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL Nebraska to increase expansion OMAHA, NEB. — An increased expansion of Nebraska’s Memorial Stadium will help satisfy a higher demand for seats and allow for future growth as the school enters the Big Ten conference, athletic department officials said Friday. A proposal approved by university regents adds 1,000 seats to the expansion first announced in October and will bring the 87-year-old stadium’s capacity to about 91,000 fans.

Lawyer regrets contacting Tressel COLUMBUS, OHIO — The Columbus lawyer who tipped off Ohio State coach Jim Tressel that two of his players were involved in a federal drug trafficking case has received death threats and now says he regrets ever contacting the Buckeyes coach. “I’m not the Judas in this situation. You know, I feel like Peter, but I’m not the Judas,” attorney Christopher Cicero said in an interview Friday with ESPN’s “Outside The Lines” and reported on

UNC CB must sit out ‘11 opener CHAPEL HILL, N.C. — North Carolina cornerback Charles Brown must sit out the opener against James Madison and repay benefits to become eligible again. The NCAA ruled that Brown accepted benefits of $86.94 from someone identified as a prospective agent before last season.

2 Michigan State players arrested ASPEN, COLO. — Two Michigan State football players have been arrested for fighting in an Aspen bar and then trying to flee from officers, authorities said.

Max Bullough, 19, and Brian Linthicum, 23, were arrested shortly after midnight Thursday at the Regal Watering Hole. Workers there reported that Linthicum was assaulting another patron, Benjamin Nichols of London. Bullough was charged with underage possession of alcohol, and Linthicum was charged with assault in the third degree. Both were charged with eluding officers and later released.

Auburn kicks four off team AUBURN, ALA. — Auburn coach Gene Chizik dismissed four players from the national champions after they were arrested on robbery and other charges early Friday morning. Auburn police said Mike McNeil, Antonio Goodwin, Shaun Kitchens and Dakota Mosley were each charged with five counts of firstdegree robbery, one count of first-degree burglary and one count of third-degree theft of property.

NCAA Arkansas St. must forfeit wins FAYETEVILLE, ARK. — The NCAA threw out more than 30 Arkansas State victories in football and basketball from the 2005-07 seasons Friday, saying the school used ineligible players. The NCAA also said that it has cut one football and one basketball scholarship for two years.

COLLEGE BASKETBALL USC suspends coach O’Neill LOS ANGELES — USC coach Kevin O’Neill was suspended for the rest of the Pac-10 tournament Friday after getting into a verbal confrontation with an Arizona booster. The school announced the suspension about two hours before the Trojans played the Wildcats in the semifinals at Staples Center. It said assistant Bob Cantu would take over.

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Keno Davis was fired as men’s basketball coach at Providence College on Friday after just three seasons on the job. Providence athletic director Bob Driscoll made the announcement Friday, three days after the Friars lost to Marquette, 87-66, in the first round of the Big East tournament.

GOLF Price matches record with 60 NEWPORT BEACH, CALIF. — Nick Price matched the lowest round in Champions Tour history, eagling two of the final four holes Friday for a career-best 11-under 60 in the Toshiba Classic.

Seeking his fourth victory on the 50and-over tour, Price eagled the par-5 15th and 18th holes and had seven birdies in a bogeyfree round at Newport Beach Country Club.

Kaymer chasing Mahan at Doral DORAL, FLA. — Hunter Mahan had a fourshot lead and appeared to be in control Friday at the Cadillac Championship until two bogeys in a three-hole stretch forced him to settle for a 1-under 71.

Middleton had a threepointer, a breakaway dunk and a follow off his own offensive rebound, then converted the free throw in a 12-4 Texas A&M run to start the second half and wipe out Texas’ 30-24 halftime lead.

Ten of Thompson’s rebounds were offensive. “Are you kidding me, how good that kid is?” Turgeon said. “We were trying to box him out and he jumps over you.

Last March, Kansas University sophomore Jake Marasco answered his phone and received the worst possible news. The day after he smacked a career-high four hits against Iowa, Marasco learned that his mother, Carol, had unexpectedly passed away at 54. Almost a year to the day later, Marasco blasted his first career home run, a towering drive to right-center field, to lift the Jayhawks to an 8-2 victory over Eastern Michigan on Friday at Hoglund Ballpark. “It felt good,” Marasco said. “The team has been great throughout everything. It’s been a tough week, but I made it through it. “Today,” he added, pausing and mustering a smile, “helps things a little bit.” After receiving congratulations from his teammates following the sixth-inning homer, which put KU on top, 3-1, Marasco was greeted by coach Ritch Price at the base of the dugout steps with a tight hug. “I just told him his mom would be proud of him,” Price said. Marasco, who leads the team with a .392 batting average, was one of six Jayhawks to record multiple hits as part of a season-high 14-hit attack. KU raised its team batting average to .215, still not a gaudy number, but Price was encouraged. “We’re not chasing as many

KU loaded the bases on a hit batsman and two walks before Kaiana Eldredge worked a walk to force in a run, and Jason Brunansky doubled home two more. “It’s been awhile since somebody got a clutch hit and cleared the bases,” Price said. “It was nice to see somebody break out.” Senior T.J. Walz evened his record at 2-2 after turning in his third straight quality start, allowing two runs on five hits while striking out a season2 high 10 in 6 ⁄3 innings. After struggling to find his rhythm out of the windup in a few early outings this season, Walz said he spent the week

BRIEFLY KU’s Finley takes 2nd in shot put COLLEGE STATION, TEXAS — Kansas University sophomore thrower Mason Finley finished second in the shot put at the 2011 NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships to score eight points for KU on Friday at the Gilliam Indoor Track Stadium on the Texas A&M campus. Finley, who took fifth in the

event as a freshman, finished as the NCAA runner-up with a toss of 19.75 meters (64-09.75 feet), which he achieved on his third throw. He held the lead following the three preliminary throws and did not drop to second place until Leif Arrhenius of BYU recorded a throw of 19.92 meters (65-04.25 feet) in the fifth round. On the women’s side, freshman sprinter Diamond Dixon

advanced to the finals in the 400 meters Friday. Dixon broke her own school record in the 400 meters, as she finished second in her heat and was the final qualifier for the finals in the event with a time of 53.06. Her previous career-best was 53.10, which she set at the 2011 Big 12 Indoor Championships. The El Paso, Texas, native will run in the finals at 5:40 p.m. today.

KANSAS CITY , M O. — Kansas University’s basketball players were in a bit of a daze the last time the Jayhawks played Texas. “I didn’t go to sleep. I was up all night,” KU junior guard Tyshawn Taylor said. The Jayhawks spent the late-evening/early-morning hours before a 74-63, Jan. 22 home loss to Texas in the dorm room of Thomas Robinson, who’d just learned of his mother’s death back in Washington, D.C. KU played well early in racing to a 35-23 halftime

lead, but was outscored, 5128, the second half. “I almost felt for a while that we didn’t even count that as a loss, that it wasn’t even on our record, because we had so much going on,” Taylor said Friday, the eve of today’s KUTexas rematch in the Big 12 title game (5 p.m., Sprint Center). “We played bad down the stretch. But they got us. They played good and got us. But to get a chance to play them again ... I think we’ll have the attitude we can beat them, and I’m sure they will come out with the same attitude. They have a good team, but I definitely

think if we play ’em again it’d be a different story.” KU coach Bill Self understands his players’ feeling of wanting a rematch of a game in which KU’s 69-game homecourt win streak was snapped. “I think everybody who is competitive wants another shot at somebody who kicked their butts from that standpoint,” Self said. “There is a payback deal with our guys.” Of the first meeting with UT, Self said: “They beat us on a day that was a weird day in Allen Fieldhouse, but no excuses. They still beat us. Regardless of what happened, they totally

dominated us the last 20 minutes of that game.” Robinson said he greatly appreciated the support of his teammates the night before the Texas game. “Texas played a good game. At the same time, we weren’t mentally ready for that game,” Robinson said. “With everything that happened, of course we want to play them. Win or lose, we want to play them again.” Noted Marcus Morris: “We were in the locker room (before the game) so juiced we had nothing else to give. We didn’t have a lot of energy until two minutes were left when we realized we might lose. They have a

great team. Yes, we’d like to play them where we feel we’re at full strength.” KU beat UT in three consecutive Big 12 title games, in 2006, 2007 and 2008. “From my standpoint, we’ve had some unbelievable games against Texas,” Self said. The Longhorns are also ready for what could be a classic final. “Kansas is upset about what happened at their place. They will come out and play hard and try to outrebound us,” UT’s J’Covan Brown said. “It’d mean a lot to us to be the first team from Texas to win the Big 12 tournament.”

another element, another dimension a lot of times we don’t have.” Taylor, who has seemed extremely focused since the suspension, didn’t crack a smile when asked to define his role on the team in this 2010-11 postseason. Remember, he got into a batch of trouble last year for saying he didn’t understand his role. “I think my role is the same whether starting or coming off the bench,” Taylor said. “Bringing energy to the team. My job is to make sure my team gets a shot every time. I had some careless turnovers again. I have to get us a shot every single time.” The Jayhawks (31-2) advanced to today’s 5 p.m. final against Texas, by beating a CU team (21-13) that raced out to leads of 11-2 and 22-10. The Morris twins then scored 17 straight points (the first seven by Marcus, the last 10 by Markieff) in a 19-4 surge that gave KU a 29-26 lead.

That’s the bottom line. We had a couple other guys guard him a few possessions, but that was Tyrel’s job.” Reed and Morningstar have a habit of outplaying stars who have bigger names and glossier statistics. Not always, but more often than most realize. “If you would have told me going into the game that Tyrel would get 15 and the guy he guarded, who was arguably one of the best offensive players in our league, would get six, I would say that definitely shifted the scale to our favor,” Self said. “So I thought he did a great job on him.”

KANSAS CITY, MO. — Going on the assumption that Kansas University junior Marcus Morris is more of a small forward, KU sophomore Thomas Robinson was pretty comfortable with his comments about his other teammate named Morris: power forward Markieff. “He’s the best big man in the country,” Robinson said following KU’s 90-83 victory over Colorado in Friday’s Big 12 tournament semifinals. “Whoever votes for the allBig 12, they made a mistake by not putting him on the first team. It was obvious tonight that he was one of the best players in the conference.” Friday, Markieff played like he was trying to prove Robinson right. In 25 minutes, the 6foot-10 forward from Philadelphia racked up 20 points and eight rebounds — five offensive — while also making his presence felt with a pair of blocked shots. The bulk of his final line came during a threeminute stretch midway through the first half in which he scored 10 straight points for the Jayhawks and helped turn a 24-17 deficit into a 27-26 lead. After taking his usual spot in the starting lineup, Markieff watched from the bench during the few minutes before his solo run. In that stretch, Marcus scored seven straight to keep KU close. It was at that point that Markieff knew it was time to go. “I hate to see him out there by himself,” he said of his brother. “If I’m not in the game with him, I don’t have that same vibe. So when I was watching him out there, I just told myself that I can do more than I was doing, and then I just started playing.” The first of Markieff ’s 10 straight points came off a free throw with 10:11 to play in the first half. Next, Markieff sealed his man and received a wellplaced pass from Brady Morningstar for a layup. At the 8:43

Morningstar likely draws the toughest assignment in tonight’s hoped-for Big 12 tournament final against Texas. Jordan Hamilton will have a big size advantage. Morningstar’s accustomed to such on-paper disadvantages and so often carries out the task so well. It will be just one of the fascinating subplots in tonight’s Big 12 title game between the schools that compete nearly ever year for the regular-season crown. Kansas didn’t get its desired rematch with Kansas State, but is eager to pay back the Texas team that ended its 69-game Allen Fieldhouse winning streak.

mark, he positioned himself perfectly to rebound a missed three-pointer and went right back up for another layup. On the next trip, he extended his range a few feet and hit a jumper off an assist from his brother. One possession later, he stepped out farther and buried a three-pointer with 7:34 to play in the half to give Kansas its first lead. “I was just trying to play harder, rebounding and stealing extra possessions,” Markieff said. “I got hot, and then I hit that three, and I felt like I was on a roll.” By halftime, KU led 43-37, and Markieff had tallied 10 points and five rebounds. All but two rebounds came during that three-minute flurry. Appropriately, the Morris twins scored 20 points apiece to lead KU into today’s championship game. Markieff ’s points — six off his seasonhigh and just the fourth time he reached 20 in a game this season — came on 6-of-10 shooting from the field and a 7-of-8 clip from the free-throw line. Marcus hit five of 12 shots and 10 of 12 free throws. Though Marcus’ production nearly matched what he did Thursday, Markieff’s followed a sub-par performance in Thursday’s quarterfinal victory over Oklahoma State. In that one, he scored 10 points, grabbed five rebounds and fouled out while playing just 18 minutes. “Even though we got the victory, I felt like I let my team down,” he said. “I need to be out there at all times, especially when it’s a crucial game like that. It was fun to get back into the groove and have a good game today.” At this point in the season, that kind of consistency is what the Jayhawks are looking for from their twin towers. As for which one starts the surge and which one follows, that doesn’t matter. “We want them to have big nights every night, and I definitely think they’re capable of that,” KU’s Tyrel Reed said.

Between games, Markieff Morris crossed paths with Texas players in the hall outside the court and told them, “I hope you’re next,” echoing the sentiments from all Longhorns and Jayhawks. Just before Texas tipped off a 70-58 victory against Texas A&M, Morningstar was informed of what Markieff had said and agreed: “I’d like to get another crack at them for sure.” And if it comes down to a final shot for KU and Reed takes it, the spectators in burnt orange ought to be more nervous than those in blue.

NOTEBOOK T-Rob returning Kansas sophomore forward Thomas Robinson, who reportedly said on Thursday night that he is definitely returning to KU for his junior season, confirmed that is indeed the case. “We have a lot of season left to play, but of course I’ll be back next year,” Robinson said. KU freshman Josh Selby, who also was on ustream Thursday night, said he’d not decided yet whether he’d return to KU or enter the NBA Draft. “I don’t know my status (for next year), to be honest,” Selby said. “Right now I am just focused on getting two rings. Like I said yesterday (in interview with Matt Tait of JournalWorld), that’s what I am focused on. After the season, I will talk to my family about it.” Better foot forward Selby is happy to report he no longer is wearing an orthotic in his right shoe — one to help soothe his stress reaction. He discarded the orthotic before KU’s first-round Big 12 tournament game Thursday. “I’m about 90 percent,” Selby said. “It (foot) feels better. I just have to get used to this feeling in my foot. I went from a 12 to a 13 (size shoe), now to a 121⁄2, so it’s a little adjustment to make.” KU assistant Kurtis Townsend gave Selby a little pep talk before Friday’s semifinal in which he scored six points with four rebounds, two turnovers and no assists in 11 minutes. “He wanted me to get back my ‘swag,’’’ Selby said. “I wasn’t confident at first. He told me to play my game. It’s what I tried to do. I got a three and an and-one. I’m getting back in the flow.” Ripping Reed KU coach Bill Self was miffed that Tyrel Reed didn’t try to call for the ball on the inbounds play with :30 seconds left. “Unbelievable. Side out of bounds, best free-throw shooter on our team and he doesn’t try to get open on the side out. That’s the kind of mental mistakes that you can’t have in this situation. I think he will (get open) next time,” Self said. KU hit 29 of 33 free throws. “That’s what I told our guys, ‘Be excited we won, but if we shoot 67 percent like we have all year long, that’s anyone’s ballgame,’’’ Self said. “So we stepped up and made them today and did a really good job in that regard, but certainly we have to do a better job late game to get the ball to our right free-throw shooters’ hands.” KU went 10-for-10 from the line over the last 10 minutes. In that span, KU made just two field goals. Stats, facts KU has won 18 in a row versus Colorado and 45 of 46 meetings dating to 1991. ... KU advanced to the Big 12 title game for the ninth time.

Colorado guards Higgins, Burks hounded by KU By Jesse Newell

KANSAS CITY , M O . — After combining for 52 points Thursday against Kansas State, Colorado guards Cory Higgins and Alec Burks mustered just 29 points on 10-for29 shooting in Friday’s 90-83 loss to Kansas. At least part of the reason, Burks said, was KU guard Brady Morningstar’s defense. “He was hounding me the

whole game,” Burks said. “He wouldn’t let me go anywhere. He’s a great defender, one of the best I’ve faced.” Though Burks was able to get 23 points on 9-for-18 shooting, that still ranked as his lowest scoring output in his three Big 12 tournament games. He said his shots didn’t come easily against Morningstar. “He’s always around. When you think he’s not there, he’s

there,” Burks shots. I think KU’s not a good said. “You’ve that was the got to give him matchup for us, main thing.

with 4:09 left for the sole purpose of giving his players a breather, hoping they could make a final push with two long breaks before the fourminute media timeout. “You could just see it,” Boyle said. “They were slow to loose balls, long rebounds.” CU guard Levi Knutson said the Buffs’ issues were more on defense than offense. The Buffs allowed 90 points for just the second time all season. KU averaged 87 points in

three games against CU this season. “There’s some teams you match up with well, there’s some you don’t,” Boyle said. “KU’s not a good matchup for us, personnel-wise, when you go down the lineup.” The Buffaloes (22-13) will wait until Sunday to see if they are selected for a berth in the NCAA Tournament. “We won a lot of games, you know?” Burks said. “I feel like it’s looking good for us.”

No. 3 Baylor 86, Kansas State 53 KANSAS CITY, MO. — Offense is a given for Baylor, so coach Kim Mulkey was especially pleased with the defense and rebounding effort that advanced the Lady Bears to the Big 12 tournament final Friday. Brittney Griner scored 21 points, and Destiny Williams added 18 to lead Baylor to a victory over Kansas State, holding the Wildcats to 35 percent shooting and outrebounding the Wildcats, 52-24. “Those kids come to your program as some of the best players in the country, but those kids have never had to guard anybody,” Mulkey said. “That’s the biggest adjustment and where you see the most improvement.” Baylor will meet Texas A&M in the finals today. Point guard Odyssey Sims added 14 while holding Kansas State’s top scorer Brittany Chambers to 3-of-11 shooting and eight points. Kelsey Hill led the fourthseeded Wildcats (21-10) with 14 points. Williams finished 7-for-9 from the field.

Brownback slices $56M to balance state budget Move reduces school funding; senator questions governor’s authority By Scott Rothschild

TOPEKA — Gov. Sam Brownback on Friday slashed $56.5 million in state spending, including $50.2 million from public schools after fellow Republicans who

control the House and Senate failed to come up with a budget-balancing plan. The move produced finger-pointing between House and Senate GOP leaders, and Senate Democratic Leader Anthony Hensley of Topeka questioned whether Brownback even had the authority to take

Judge rules against parents in school suit

the unilateral action on the budget. The budget cuts mean that base state aid to schools will fall from $4,012 per pupil to $3,990 — a $22-per-student decrease, according to the governor’s office. The base state aid per pupil cut would

have been deeper, but the state will move some federal funds to keep it at $22 per student, the office said. Brownback said the cuts will satisfy a state requirement to balance the budget Please see BUDGET, page 2B Brownback

K A N S A S C I T Y , M O . — Parents in a wealthy suburban Kansas City school district cannot seek to raise property taxes above a state cap because it could bring down Kansas’ entire school funding system, a federal judge ruled Friday. A lawsuit filed by parents in Kansas’ Shawnee Mission school district claimed state school funding is inadequate, citing $20 million in cuts over the last two years. They sought a temporary injunction to bypass a Lungstrum provision in state law and ask voters for a local tax hike to fund schools. U.S. District Judge John W. Lungstrum dismissed the lawsuit, saying the local option budget cap — which limits the amount of money school districts can raise beyond what the state provides — is not severable from the rest of the funding formula. “If plaintiffs were to prevail on their claim that the cap is unconstitutional, the entire scheme would be struck down,” Lungstrum wrote. The Kansas Legislature created the funding formula in 2005, in response to a lawsuit filed by dozens of school districts claiming the state wasn’t meeting Please see LAWSUIT, page 2B

Remember to spring forward Sunday and change batteries Look on the bright side — an hour is lost this weekend, but the sun will stick around later than normal. Daylight saving time officially starts at 2 a.m. Sunday, which means Lawrence residents will lose an hour overnight. Clocks should be set forward an hour. That means the sun will rise about 7:30 a.m. and set about 7:30 p.m.

Come Monday, orange cones and construction workers will return to a stretch of Interstate 70 just east of Lawrence. And when they do, Kansas Turnpike officials said motorists should expect delays during heavytraffic times. For the next eight months, crews will be rebuilding, from the earth up, a three-mile stretch of road that goes east from the Lawrence service area to mile marker 211. During that time, traffic will be narrowed to one lane in each direction. The reconstruction, which is the last stretch of the turnpike that still has the original 1950s concrete road, is part of a $23 million project that began last summer. Four miles of highway just east of Lawrence Construction have already been rebuilt. east of Just as it did last year, traffic is expected to back up during busy Lawrence Friday afternoons, said Michael begins Johnston, KTA president and Monday and CEO. To help avoid major traffic jams, Johnston said, the turnpike will last plans to have wreckers and staff about eight on scene when traffic is heaviest. months. “Unfortunately last year, it seemed like we had accidents on Friday afternoon every week, which is the busy time,” Johnston said. Figuring out the best way to route traffic through the construction zone was a challenge. The KTA wanted to make sure the service area, home to a McDonald’s and gas station, remained opened. Traffic will be directed through the construction zone in three phases: ● Until mid-June, traffic through the service area will be funneled to the left lane in both directions. Once past the service area, the eastbound lane will cross over to the westbound lane where one lane of traffic will flow in each direction. ● Once construction is finished in the eastbound lane, crews will move to the westbound lane. At that time, westbound traffic heading into the construction zone will cross over into the eastbound lane, where one lane of traffic will flow in each direction. Just before the service area, westbound traffic will go back into the westbound lane. Through the service area, both eastbound and westbound traffic will be restricted to the left lane. This phase is expected to run from mid-June to September. ● Once crews have reconstructed both the eastbound and westbound lanes east of the service area, they will focus on sections of the road that had previously been left open so drivers could access the service area. During that time, all traffic through the service area will continue to be funneled through the right lane. This phase is expected to last from September until November.

Hensley said the HouseSenate budget conference committee should continue working. Of Brownback, he said, “He can’t even bring members of his own party together.” House Speaker Mike O’Neal, R-Hutchinson, also said the budget conference committee could continue meeting, but Senate members indicated that Brownback’s budget cuts would suffice for the current fiscal year, and the Legislature should focus during the rest of the legislative session on writing a budget for the next fiscal year. The budget cuts include $2.3 million from the Kansas Board of Regents. But Kip Peterson, a spokesman for the regents, said that money is coming from an overfunded infrastructure loan program and shouldn’t affect higher education operations.

Noting the state’s 110,000 unemployed, Brownback said, “Our focus must be to grow the state’s economy and get those folks back to work. We do that and we’ll have additional funding for everyone’s budget priorities.” Brownback said he picked up the budget knife after House and Senate negotiations fell apart. Brownback had asked the Legislature on Jan. 12 to send him a bill that would cut spending and provide a $35 million ending balance. The House and Senate passed different versions. But negotiators couldn’t hammer out the differences. The House wanted deeper cuts to education than the Senate

Murder trial in death of hip-hop artist goes to jury ————

Defense attorney claims shooting being pinned on client By George Diepenbrock

A Douglas County jury will resume deliberations Monday morning in the firstdegree murder trial of a Kansas City, Kan., man accused of shooting and killing a Lawrence hip-hop artist in 2006. Prosecutors during the five-day trial accused Durrell Jones, 26, of killing Anthony “Clacc” Vital, 28, to collect on a drug debt. “Only one person had the gun in his hands on COURTS Oct. 14 in the nighttime hours,” chief assistant district attorney Amy McGowan said during closing arguments Friday afternoon. “And only one person shot Anthony Vital while he was defenseless.” But Jones’ defense attorney John Kerns said the evidence was inconsistent and that a co-defendant, Major C. Edwards Jr., 31, who pleaded to a lesser charge of voluntary manslaughter, was trying to pin the shooting on Jones. “Getting years off whatever he pled to was just gravy, that’s what he’s trying to tell you,” Kerns told jurors. A jury of 11 women and one

Kansas University is launching an internal search to find a new senior vice provost for academic affairs. Barbara Romzek, who had been serving in the role on an interim basis, will return to fulltime scholarship. Romzek has also served in the past as KU’s interim dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and is a former chairwoman of KU’s department of public administration. Romzek became interim vice provost in August 2009, and was promoted to interim senior vice provost in the fall of 2010. She will stay in the role until Aug. 31 to help the new senior vice provost transition into the person’s new responsibilities.

man deliberated about 90 minutes on Friday. The jury has the option of convicting Jones of premeditated firstdegree murder, intentional second-degree murder or finding him not guilty. Prosecutors presented evidence, including cell phone records and DNA evidence, they said corroborated Edwards’ testimony. He had said Jones pulled a gun on him and Vital in a car Edwards drove that night. Edwards said he had agreed to take Jones to pick up Vital because Jones wanted Vital to pay him for a bottle of PCP Jones had fronted him about a month before. But Edwards said Jones pulled out the gun and directed Edwards to keep driving until Jones told him to pull over about two miles west of Lawrence on a rural driveway. Edwards has said the three bailed out of the car in a hurry and Vital ran into Jones, who shot him three times. They left the body there as Edwards said Jones threatened him, and they returned to a party at a Lawrence apartment on Sixth Street. Edwards then left town because he said he feared Jones would come after him. Officers arrested him days later in Mississippi. McGowan told jurors that testimony and physical evidence backs up Edwards’ ver-

sion of events, including DNA evidence found near the body linked both to Edwards and Vital. But Kerns said prosecutors could not determine how the items linked to Jones, a Neosporin cap and an unsmoked Moore cigarette, at the scene got there. He said Edwards had been driving several people around Lawrence for several days in a borrowed car and the items could have fallen out. He also questioned why Edwards, who said he was held at gunpoint in the car, entered a plea in the case. “Is that a crime? Does that based on your common sense tell you that that’s a crime?” Kerns said. Edwards testified he was remorseful for leading Jones to Vital when he knew Jones had a gun. McGowan said witnesses who saw Jones earlier that day linked him to the alleged murder weapon, not Edwards. “There has not been a shred of evidence to show it was in Major Edwards’ hands,” McGowan said, “not a shred of evidence to show that anyone else other than Durrell Jones had a motive to kill Anthony Vital.” — Reporter George Diepenbrock can be reached at 832-7144.

Senators review alternative to Kobach voter ID measure

BRIEFLY Search for new senior vice provost launched


— Rep. Ann Mah, D-Topeka state courts. Kobach has said he wants to give Kansas the toughest laws against election fraud in the nation, but Mah, a vocal critic of his proposals, contends they will make it harder for people to register and to vote without doing enough to combat fraud. The Senate committee had a hearing on Mah’s proposals and expects to consider them and Kobach’s legislation when it debates election fraud issues next week. The House approved Kobach’s bill last month, and Mah said she doesn’t see a way to fix his legislation. “We should just start over and write a common-sense bill,” Mah said. Mah’s proposals have received far less attention than Kobach’s legislation.

Hearings have been packed for multiple days when his bill has been reviewed by committees in both chambers, but the hour-long hearing for Mah’s bill drew only a handful of spectators, and Kobach wasn’t present. Brad Bryant, the elections director for the secretary of state’s office, said Kobach’s bill is more comprehensive, and county officials have already said they can administer it effectively. “We believe we’ve offered the Legislature a better alternative,” he said. Mah has taken the unusual step of bypassing the House to get her proposals considered in the Senate. The House vote on Kobach’s bill was 8336, and Mah said before Friday’s hearing that she sees little point in pushing her proposal there, though she’s the ranking minority party member on the Elections Committee. “It’s not going anywhere over there,” she said. “They already have a voter bill, and they’re not going to pass two of them.”

its constitutional obligation to adequately fund public schools. The local option tax was capped so wealthy districts wouldn’t have an unfair advantage over poorer ones, and the Shawnee Mission district — one of the wealthiest in Kansas — has reached the maximum amount allowed. Lawmakers wrote into the law that the cap on local property taxes could not be broken away from the rest of the formula. Lungstrum said that means if he sided with parents and ruled the cap unconstitutional, it would dismantle the entire formula, so he decided not to rule “on

the question of whether there is a rational basis” for the local cap. The state’s attorney in the case, Alan Rupe, agreed: “We characterized it as Armageddon,” he said. An attorney for the parents, Tristan Duncan, was thankful for the quick ruling but hoped her clients would win on appeal in time to hold a tax vote and have the new money available for next year’s school budget, which must be completed by Aug. 25. “We’re disappointed, but we intend to file an appeal soon,” Duncan said, adding that a Harvard constitutional law expert helping on the case “believes there is constitutional significance to this case and we will be vindicat-

ed on appeal.” Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said the decision leaves balance intact. “We will continue to defend the authority of the Legislature and the governor to set school funding priorities and to balance competing interests,” Schmidt said in a statement. Rupe said it was clear ahead of Friday’s ruling that whichever side came up short would appeal. Rupe also is representing more than 60 school districts in a separate lawsuit that claims Kansas hasn’t adequately funded schools as required by the 2005 formula. He suggested the Shawnee Mission parents join that lawsuit if they wanted to increase state aid.

Brownback denies KBA takeover claims

Twitter must give user info in probe

By Scott Rothschild

A federal magistrate ruled Friday that prosecutors can demand Twitter account information of certain users in their criminal probe into the disclosure of classified documents on WikiLeaks. The prosecutors’ reasons for seeking the records remain secret and it’s unknown how important they are to the investigation of the largest leak ever of classified American documents. The Twitter users argued that the government was on a fishing expedition that amounted to an unconstitutional violation of their freedoms of speech and association. But in a ruling issued Friday, U.S. Magistrate Judge Theresa Carroll Buchanan said the government’s request was reasonable and did nothing to hamper the Twitter users’ free speech rights. “The freedom of association does not shield members from cooperating with legitimate government investigations,” Buchanan wrote in her 20-page opinion. 2 | LIBYA

Gadhafi forces show growing confidence Moammar Gadhafi’s regime showed growing confidence Friday after retaking a strategic near Tripoli following days of relentless shelling against protesters-turned-rebels as it strengthened its hold on the capital and surrounding areas. Government forces also captured a key oil town in the east and fought to dislodge rebels who took refuge among towering storage containers of crude oil and gas in nearby facilities. Zawiya’s main square, which had been a key center of resistance to the west of the capital, bore the scars of battle and the streets were lined with tanks as loyalists waving green flags rallied amid a heavy presence of uniformed pro-Gadhafi troops and snipers. There was talk of rebel bodies having been bulldozed away, and the dome and minaret of the nearby mosque were demolished. With Gadhafi’s men also on the march against rebels in the east, Western nations appeared in disarray over how to stop the bloodshed. President Barack Obama said a no-fly zone over Libya to protect the civilian population from the Gadhafi regime’s fighter jets remains a possibility as “we are slowly tightening the noose” around Gadhafi, but he stopped short of moving toward military action. 3 | SAN FRANCISCO

Fans line up to buy first batch of iPad 2s The updated version of Apple Inc.’s iPad tablet computer went on sale Friday afternoon and was greeted by the now-familiar lines of buyers outside Apple stores. The Cupertino company opened online sales of the iPad 2 at 4 a.m. Eastern time, well before they became available in East Coast stores at 5 p.m. They were set to go on sale nationwide at the same hour, local time. Apple fans, as usual, were eager to get their hands on the device as they waited at the company’s Apple’s Fifth Avenue store in New York. The line of customers, including some who traveled from Japan and Russia, snaked through the street-level plaza above the subterranean store while bystanders gawked at the crowd. 4 | HOUSTON

Giffords makes ‘leaps and bounds’ She can talk, even saying short sentences. With some help, she can walk. She also knows that she was shot. But for doctors, some of the greatest moments in treating Rep. Gabrielle Giffords occur when her true personality shines through and she shares big grins and excitement over milestones in her recovery from a devastating gunshot wound to the head. “That’s Gabby. It’s a constant, wonderful thing,” said Dr. Dong Kim, a neuroscientist. Doctors provided the new details about Giffords’ condition Friday, their first official update since she began intensive rehabilitation in Houston on Jan. 26. Until now, tidbits of information came from friends and family, but the doctors, those with the understanding and knowledge of what each setback and step forward means for long-term recovery, remained tight-lipped. Kim and two other members of her medical team described several breakthroughs in Giffords’ recovery from her brain injury, saying she has made “leaps and bounds.” 4 | HOUSTON

Airfares going up, not just because of oil Airlines have used surging oil prices to justify fare increases of up to $60 per ticket since the start of the year. But the rising cost of fuel isn’t the only reason it’s getting more difficult to find cheap fares. The improving economy, a shrinking supply of seats and industry consolidation are also to blame. “This is probably going to be the worst year we have seen in 10 years in terms of finding bargains,” says Tom Parsons of, a website for travel deals. Even before turmoil in the Middle East drove oil prices higher, airfares were headed higher. The average cost of a round-trip ticket on a U.S. airline was $360 before taxes at the start of 2011, a 9 percent increase from the previous year. By summer that figure could reach $430, says Robert Herbst, an independent airline analyst.

TOPEKA — Democratic legislative leaders on Friday accused Gov. Sam Brownback of trying to take over the Kansas Bioscience Authority. “It is nothing more than a blatant power grab,” said Senate Democratic Leader Anthony Hensley of Topeka. “The administration wants to undermine the Bioscience Authority,

and it couldn’t come at a worse time,” Hensley said. He said Brownback, a Republican, was behind hearings by Senate Commerce Committee Chairwoman Susan Wagle, R-Wichita, over salaries for the KBA’s president and chief executive officer Tom Thornton and other employees. Hensley described Wagle’s probe as a “witch hunt.” Hensley said Brownback was also

Audits help find holes to plug By Christine Metz

Lawrence energy auditor Robert Coffman hadn’t even reached the front door of Tony Schmidt’s house before he spotted trouble. The drain pipes were starting to plug up and there was erosion by the front steps. “There are times that a leak like this eventually ends up in the basement,” he told Schmidt. Schmidt has lived in the house for 20 years, raising his four children there. But it wasn’t until this month that the

beige, five-bedroom house had what Schmidt referred to as a “physical checkup.” As Coffman circled the house, he was on the lookout for dirty insulation — a sure sign that air is flowing in and out — and cobwebs. “Cobwebs are our friend when we are looking around,” he said. Spiders build cobwebs near food sources. And if insects are coming in and out of homes, air is as well. Right now Coffman is wading through energy audits, thanks to a program through the Kansas Energy Office that offers $100 audits, hundreds of dollars less than what they are worth.

So far, close to 1,100 energy audits have been done throughout the state. The program, known as Efficiency Kansas, is funded through stimulus money and allows the homeowner to take out loans either through a traditional bank or utility. Those loans will then go toward fixing the problems uncovered in the audit. The most cost-effective improvements are tackled first. Please see AUDIT, page 4B ● KU students take on K-

When it comes to the city’s $18 million expansion of the Lawrence Public Library, everything from the lack of a back door to the appearance of the backside of a parking garage are starting to create questions with some neighbors. The city and library leaders will hold a public meeting at 2 p.m. Sunday at the library to hear comments about how the library project should be designed. “We want to hear from the public,” said Bruce Flanders, director of the library. “The site seems to dictate where the general location of the parking garage will be, but in terms of the design of the library itself, that’s still kind of an open book. There’s a lot of possibility for valid input.” The meeting was put together after several members of the Old West Lawrence Neighborhood Association began asking Please see LIBRARY, page 4B


Regents beef up executive evaluations By Dolph C. Simons Jr.

Members of the Kansas Board of Regents conduct annual performance evaluations of the chancellor and presidents of the six state universities. In past years, this evaluation exercise has been relatively superficial, and regents have not been aware of many troubling situations or problems on the various campuses. Last year, the regents decided a more thorough examination was needed of how the chancellor and presidents were carrying out their responsibilities. They realized it is not enough to rely on the chancellor, presidents and provosts to come clean and tell the regents everything they should know. In past years, the administrators were, in effect, giving their own self-serving scorecard to the regents. A new “360” process now is in operation at the state universities where regents ask about 150 individuals from each school to evaluate how their chancellor or president is carrying out his or her responsibilities. Within the past few days, members of the Kansas University Alumni Association, the KU Endowment Association, some off-campus Lawrence residents, alumni living elsewhere and others received an e-mail from regents Chairman Gary Sherrer

job these university administrators are doing. Likewise, the regents should have the backbone and courage to take corrective actions if they are necessary. Unfortunately, history has seen regents stalling and putting off action with the hope that some way or another, time will take care of the matter or some other group of regents will have to decide how to deal with a chancellor or president who is not measuring up. In addition to what the survey reveals, another important question is how the list of survey recipients was put together. Who determined who would be the most knowledgeable, objective and honest people to participate in the process to judge the effectiveness of the university leaders? The survey is long overdue for all of the state universities, and the regents are to be applauded for initiating this exercise. The national competition among state-assisted universities is intense, and Kansas can’t afford to not have the best people in university leadership positions. Our universities need and deserve strong, articulate, visionary and stimulating leaders, individuals with high marketability. To settle for less is a major disservice to the state.

behind a Senate bill that would place his Cabinet officials in charge of the KBA. “It’s an independent group that shouldn’t be under the thumb of the governor,” he said. Asked whether he was trying to take over the KBA, Brownback said, “That’s not true. I have plenty of my own problems to deal with.”

KU students challenged to waste less energy By Christine Metz

Because students living on Kansas University’s campus never have to see an outright electric bill, it can be a struggle to find an incentive to persuade them to conserve energy. But KU and local officials have one trick they think will motivate students to turn off the lights: beating Kansas State. This week, students living in eight KU residence halls began competing with students at K-State to see which group can reduce their overall electricity usage the most during the next two months. “If you don’t see the numbers showing up on your bill, it is a lot easier to ignore the fact that someone is paying for electricity,” said Jeff Severin, director of the KU Center for Sustainability. “Introducing competition makes a big difference.” The event is part of a larger competition between Lawrence and Manhattan dubbed the Take Charge Challenge, which pits the two cities against each other to see who takes the most steps to reduce energy consumption. Along with bragging rights, the city with the greatest participation receives $100,000 to spend on a community renewable energy project. The overall challenge largely focuses on what those living in homes could do to reduce energy, such as receiving an energy audit or signing up for one of Westar’s energyefficiency programs.

Those options aren’t applicable to students living in residence halls. So a student-friendly contest was created. Margaret Tran, who is heading the Take Charge Challenge in Lawrence and is a recent KU graduate, said the competition takes students’ passion for conservation and turns it into action. “Students can do something,” Tran said. Over the next two months, students will be encouraged to: ● Turn off lights and use natural light when possible. ● Replace incandescent light bulbs with compact florescent ones. ● Adjust computer settings to save energy. ● Power down and unplug electronics, especially energy-draining ones such as televisions and video game consoles. KU students have a good track record of conserving energy when winning is on the line. Last spring, four student housing communities that included 120 students agreed to sign a pledge to reduce their water, electricity and natural gas usage. The students conserved 97,800 gallons of water, 8,900 kilowatts of electricity and nearly 400 million BTUs in the amount of gas saved. “A lot of the time, a competition like that can replace the financial incentive to get the students excited and thinking of ways to reduce their impact,” Severin said.


“This is a terrific incentive where we can get our home tuned up for a mere $100,” Schmidt said. The energy audits are one way Lawrence residents can participate in the Take Charge Challenge, a competition that pits Lawrence against Manhattan to see who can save the most energy. Until two and a half years ago, Coffman couldn’t make a living as an energy auditor and largely stuck to restoring historic homes. Today he has 60 audits in front of him. While the focus is on energy savings, Coffman said the audits often reveal much more. He’s found recluse spiders, mold, dangerous levels of carbon monoxide and broken exhaust pipes. “This is really about large holes in our house. And it is really becoming in addition to that a health and safety issue,” Coffman said.


questions about some conceptual plans for the building. Kirk McClure, a West Lawrence neighborhood member, said he had heard concerns that the new library would have an entrance only on the Vermont Street side. That would make it less convenient for Old West Lawrence residents to walk to the library. He also said there were concerns that the parking garage for the project may — Reporter Christine Metz can be reached be taller than many neighbors at 832-6352. expected.

In the case of Schmidt’s home, the audit took several hours. Along with walking along the outside of the home, Coffman looked over energy bills and performed what was known as a blower door test that depressurizes the home and exaggerates air leaks. He’ll then spend another two hours on paperwork, writing up a report that shows how much energy is being lost and what are the most cost-effective ways to improve the home’s efficiency. Of particular concern to Coffman was an unused chimney and a squirrel that had somehow managed to make its way into the house, which indicates a large air leak. One feature that won’t likely get upgraded is the windows. “I understand people want to get windows,” Coffman said. “But a lot of this work isn’t that glamorous.” — Reporter Christine Metz can be reached at 832-6352.

Flanders said the garage is scheduled to be three stories tall, and would grow to four if city commissioners decide to add more parking. McClure said neighbors wanted to ensure the garage doesn’t end up looking like a “four-story wall.” Flanders said architects and library leaders are working to set up other meeting dates to gather input. He said plans likely won’t be presented to the Library Board for approval until September. Any plans also would have to be approved by the City Commission. — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362. Follow him at



But Brownback indicated support for Wagle’s hearings. “I always think hearings are a helpful thing,” he said. The KBA, formed in 2004, is responsible for investing $581 million in state revenue to increase the bioscience industry in Kansas. Sen. Wagle has criticized the size of Thornton’s salary and expenses. His annual salary is $265,000, and he received a $100,000 bonus last year. Another $43,000 is spent on insurance and

retirement benefits. But Thornton’s supporters say his salary is in line with off icials running similar enterprises. House Democratic Leader Paul Davis of Lawrence said Thornton’s leadership was a big factor in Kansas winning a national competition to get the National Bio and AgroDefense Facility, which is to be built in Manhattan. Senate President Steve Morris, R-Hugoton, praised both the KBA and Thornton. Morris said he had 100 percent confidence in Thornton. — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

I’m a pretty lady and always wear a happy face even though, I admit, I’m lonesome for a home of my own.

With a name like mine, you have to have all the charm in the world just to get by. Don’t worry, I’ve got what it takes. I’m about a year old, coal black with bright green eyes. I’m an alert and curious fellow, and all the noise at the shelter makes me wonder. But give me a safe home and watch the charm start rolling. Sweet and loving — that’s the boy I am (with a name you can’t forget!).

I’m a little gal that’s big on love. About 2 years old, I have a beautiful soft coat with black stripes. I like to have things sort of quiet, but it’s not quiet at the shelter — it’s a little scary. A peaceful home is my dream of dreams. I like to play, but I love to cozy up for some sweet affection. Often when I’m all alone, I imagine my new home with you, and then I smile.

I understand that Bert Nash Community Mental Health Center charges people on a sliding scale. Does the scale go all the way to zero or is there a minimum fee they charge, which would therefore exclude the indigent?


A sliding fee scale is available to some Douglas County residents according to financial ability and access to other resources such as insurance, Medicaid and Medicare, said Cindy Hart, development director. Clients at the lowest income level may apply for a fee waiver. Regarding indigent care, Bert Nash has a team of homeless outreach professionals who assist individuals and families with and without mental illness. The Bert Nash Center works in partnership with city, county and state resources to assist the population with location of permanent or transitional housing, and finding and accessing resources and support from other Douglas County providers. “While the Bert Nash Center receives public funding, we are an independent organization and 60 percent of our operational expense is covered by the fees our clients pay. Therefore, we provide indigent care within our financial limits,” Hart said.

The bipartisan measure contains $6.1 billion in budget savings by rescinding unneeded money from the Census Bureau and other accounts, killing programs proposed for termination by Obama and emptying accounts set aside for lawmakers’ earmarks. The short-term spending plan involves day-to-day operating budgets — not major benefit programs like Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security that are seen by most budget experts as long-term contributors to the nation’s spiraling debt.

Social Security trust fund solvency is a myth WASHINGTON — Everyone knows that the U.S. budget is being devoured by entitlements. Everyone also knows that of the Big Three — Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security — Social Security is the most solvable. Back-of-an-envelope solvable: Raise the retirement age, tweak the indexing formula (from wage inflation to price inflation) and means-test so that Warren Buffett’s check gets redirected to a senior in need. The relative ease of the fix is what makes the Obama administration’s Social Security strategy so shocking. The new line from the White House is: no need to fix it because there is no problem. As Office of Management and Budget Director Jack Lew wrote in USA Today just a few weeks ago, the trust fund is solvent until 2037. Therefore, Social Security is now off the table in debt-reduction talks. This claim is a breathtaking fraud. The pretense is that a flush trust fund will pay retirees for the next 26 years. Lovely, except for one thing: The Social Security trust fund is a fiction. If you don’t believe me, listen to the OMB’s own explanation (in the Clinton administration budget for fiscal year 2000 under then-Director Jack Lew, the very same). The OMB explained that these trust fund “balances” are nothing more than a “bookkeeping” device. “They do not consist of real economic assets that can be drawn down in the

When your FICA tax is taken out of your paycheck, it does not get squirreled away in some lockbox in West Virginia where it’s kept until you and your contemporaries retire. Most goes out immediately to pay current retirees, and the rest (say, $100) goes to the U.S. Treasury — and is spent. On roads, bridges, national defense, public television, whatever — spent, gone. In return for that $100, the Treasury sends the Social Security Administra-

tion a piece of paper that says: IOU $100. There are countless such pieces of paper in the lockbox. They are called “special issue” bonds. Special they are: They are worthless. As the OMB explained, they are nothing more than “claims on the Treasury (i.e., promises) that, when redeemed (when you retire and are awaiting your check), will have to be financed by raising taxes, borrowing from the public, or reducing benefits or other expenditures.” That’s what it means to have a so-called trust fund with no “real economic assets.” When you retire, the “trust fund” will have to go to the Treasury for the money for your Social Security check. Bottom line? The OMB again: “The existence of large trust fund balances, therefore, does not, by itself, have any impact on the government’s ability to pay benefits.” No impact: The lockbox, the balances, the little pieces of paper, amount to nothing. So that when Jack Lew tells you that there are trillions in this lockbox that keep the system solvent until 2037, he is perpetrating a fiction certified as such by his own OMB. What happens when you retire? Your Social Security will come out of the taxes and borrowing of that fiscal year. Why is this a problem? Because as of 2010, the pay-as-you-go Social Security system is in the red. For decades, it had been in the black, tak-

In Topeka, the Kansas Senate had passed a bill that would prohibit danYEARS gerous hazing by AGO student and social IN 1986 organizations. The bill, designed to discourage the practice of putting new fraternity and sorority members through mentally or physically dangerous initiations, was sent to the House along with two other bills. One increased fees for driver’s licenses, and the other increased the penalties for child abuse. An old lumber yard building that had been on the northeast corner of 19th and Massachusetts streets had been razed recently to make room for a new Kwik Shop convenience store. The intersection also was undergoing a street-widening project to add a left-turn lane and new traffic signals.

ing in more in FICA taxes than it sent out in Social Security benefits. The surplus, scooped up by the Treasury, reduced the federal debt by tens of billions. But demography is destiny. The ratio of workers to retirees is shrinking year by year. Instead of Social Security producing annual surpluses that reduce the federal deficit, it is now producing shortfalls that increase the federal deficit — $37 billion in 2010. It will only get worse as the baby boomers retire. That’s what makes this administration’s claim that Social Security is solvent so cynical. The Republicans have said that their April budget will contain real entitlement reform. President Obama is preparing the ground to demagogue Social Security right through the 2012 elections. The ad writes itself: Those heartless Republicans don’t just want to throw granny in the snow, they want to throw granny in the snow to solve a problem that doesn’t even exist! Vote Obama. On Tuesday, Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia denounced Obama for lack of leadership on the debt. It’s worse than that. Obama is showing leadership. With Lew’s preposterous claim that Social Security is solvent for 26 years, Obama is preparing to lead the charge against entitlement reform as his ticket to re-election.


A woman described as a “Lawrence housewife” had been YEARS driving near Sixth AGO and Maine when, at IN 1971 a traffic stop, a man forced his way into her car. He ordered the woman to continue west and to turn at Wisconsin, and as she did so, he made a pass at her. Her dog, riding in the back seat, jumped into the front seat and attacked the intruder. The man jumped from the car and ran off, and the woman and her dog continued on to the National Guard Armory on North Iowa, where they were attending a dog obedience class. — Compiled by Sarah St. John

Vaccination debate To the editor: As one of the families suffering from whooping cough in the Lawrence area this winter, I take issue with your article that definitively states that vaccination is the best protection against the disease. Your reporter fails to report that even people vaccinated for pertussis can contract the disease, though they carry and transmit it without recognizable symptoms, thusly spreading the disease unknowingly. Though my family was misdiagnosed the first eight weeks we had it, I feel thankful that our symptoms presented so conspicuously that we could be diagnosed accurately and could then stay home and do our part to stop the spread of this difficult illness. Additionally, I’d like to respond to the considerable flak I’ve been receiving, as a representative of the unvaccinated population, on the Journal-World’s forum in response to this article. The reasons so many of us nationwide, and undeniably here in Lawrence, choose not to vaccinate are largely misunderstood. Rather than dismissing us as crazy, please listen to our concerns; our questions are quite relevant in this great health care debate. Though we have yet to see convincing, unbiased evidence of either the long-term efficacy of the herd-immunity approach to disease prevention, or the safety of the vaccinations themselves, we are eager to engage in real scientific debate with individuals, and

especially researchers, willing to face fear of disease, look closely at the manipulation of our fears by the profit-driven health care industry, and find effective solutions to the ever-evolving maladies of our human existence. Maggie Beedles, Lawrence

GOP strategy To the editor: From the moment Barack Obama was inaugurated, the GOP’s strategy appeared to be an all-out attempt to make sure nothing positive or productive occurred during his presidency, even to the point of disavowing and mocking their own former policies and positions if, God forbid, they made sense and Obama agreed with them. Then they must have had a secret meeting at some billionaire’s hunting lodge where they formulated a nationwide plan for retaking the White House in 2012. How they would get around the inconvenience of not having an electable candidate has since come to light: 1. Crush unions in as many states as possible to hobble their ability to make significant campaign contributions since unions tend to lean Democratic. 2. Yank federal funding for those pesky-lefty NPR and PBS stations that have the gall to actually educate and inform people. 3. Pass as much pointless legislation as possible to make it more difficult and confusing to register to vote since baseless restrictions will more likely impact potential voters who are young and minorities, who also tend

Israel response

What the Lawrence Journal-World stands for



suggesting that Israel give up one of the few holy places left in Jerusalem? What about Christians reconsidering the “nature and message” or Bethlehem” Or the Muslims reconsidering the “nature and message” of the Dome of the Rock, which covers another sacred place to Jews, the mountain where Abraham went to follow The Holy One’s commandments to offer his son as a sacrifice? I would like to ask Mr. Conrad when he last visited Israel, how long he was there and how many people he communicated with, both Jewish and Muslim. Or maybe he should read the Bible: To the editor: “If I forget thee, O Jerusalem…” In his letter “Israel opening?” (PubSuzanne Lange, lic Forum, March 8), Don Conrad Lawrence states that he is not a political scientist, but he offers his interpretation of Israel’s actions and future.

It’s all quite complicated, dirtysneaky, and time-consuming — and to hell with the actual issues, progress, common sense, decency and constituents — but apparently promoting a smart, sane, experienced, ethical and viable candidate from among the current GOP frontrunners posed a bigger challenge.

How do alternative spring breaks reinforce the tenets of faith? ————

of the alternative break. This is done recognizing that the participant needs to be open to rethinking his/her own way of life as another culture or context than the one in which they had been raised. Freire challenges such “banking education” where students answer questions that have no relevance to their own experience. Fortunately, at KU, not all classrooms are like this, and where, in contrast, questions raised from alternative breaks are welcomed. Both student and professor are recognized as having expertise. As I review evaluations of alternative break participants, I am struck by how the learning experience becomes connected to the possibility that they can effect change in society. The tenets of faith that are reinforced are numerous. In addition to possibly discerning their “call” or vocation in life, justice is understood as

systemic in contrast to charity, thus love becomes a way to publicly affirm social change with compassion — an ability to “suffer with others.” Faith becomes a verb that describes how one makes sense of life. It changes as one understands one’s life as a gift and with a sense of “grace” can accept the past as a way to learn. “Journey” as a metaphor may be discovered as they have a change in perspective on social and political issues or a new appreciation of living interdependent with the earth is acknowledged. Journey as liberation gains new relevance. One can be “reborn,” not in the sense of suddenly being “saved” and protected from life, but in being drawn into the midst of living where the sacred and secular are mixed and the Holy is present. — Send e-mail to Thad Holcombe at

Participants consider how their presence is felt in the lives of others By Jeff Miller

In a classroom setting, it is common that we lose sight of the fact that human reactions to mass social currents do not emerge from a vacuum outside of our kin, but from the collective behaviors of individuals negotiating the parameters of their lived environments guided by the prefer- Miller ences, needs and desires that all humans build up over their lifetimes. Alternative breaks draw us out of the university and remind us that neoliberal economic policy and urban migration are not the stuff of term papers and databases, but massive categories of policy and decision-making that trickle down to shape human experiences. Engaged with populations marginalized by these processes often treated as

theory, the separation that so often exists between academia and emotion dissolves. Indifference to those structural inequalities observed grows impossible unless one regards their host-community as standing outside of that human circle worthy of dignity and fair treatment — and the very structure of these programs works to dissolve the thought. More often than not, members of host-communities feed and house us. Come sunrise, we sit together and receive their sustenance into our bodies; come sunset, they receive us into their homes. As in all good human interaction, shared interest is discovered, mutual understanding of lifestyle and behavior thickens and empathy arises. A more subtle picture of those relevant political and economic structures reviewed in the classroom embeds itself in all five senses, for we see how these processes are made manifest in the family structures, culinary traditions, and social lives of all involved.

Jealousy about close friendships unnecessary

Dear Doris: We think you should let this slide and forget about it. Don mumbled because he was embarrassed to have you overhear something he used to say to an old friend and knew you wouldn’t like. He isn’t trying to hide an affair or rekindle an old flame. You can choose to make a fuss over this and create a problem or show Don what an under-

exhausted. It is diff icult enough to keep myself energized and upbeat without having to constantly do the same for him. I love him and don’t want to see our marriage fall apart, but I fear that if something doesn’t change soon, he is going to sink into a deep level of unhappiness and drag me along with him. What else can I do? — Positively Unhappy Wife

Games past, present, real and virtual dominate the weekend’s offering as March Madness looms and Daylight Saving Time begins. Jerry Trainor and Jennette McCurdy of “iCarly” fame star in the original madefor-TV movie “Best Player” (7 p.m., Nickelodeon). Episodes of “iCarly” (6 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.) precede the new offering. As on “iCarly,” there’s always a little cross-generational weirdness. Trainor plays a video game whiz who feels threatened by a younger rival (McCurdy). So he tries to throw her off her game by dating her mother. As I do whenever I see “iCarly,” I feel compelled to counsel Trainor’s character to grow up and find boys his own age to play with. ● The best sports documentaries are about more than the game. And “Runnin’ Rebels of UNLV” (8:30 p.m., HBO) is no exception. The film recalls the remarkable success of the University of Nevada at Las Vegas basketball team under its colorful, controversial and towel abusing coach Jerry Tarkanian. From the early 1970s to the 1990s, Tarkanian took a school with absolutely no presence on the national stage and put it at the center of NCAA basketball. The Rebels would go the entire 1990-1991 season without a loss before falling to Duke in the Final Four. Tarkanian would lead his team to a 509-105 record, astonishing by any measure. “Rebels” recalls the NCAA’s frequent and consistent efforts to discredit Tarkanian and his team for recruiting violations and other infractions. Rebel supporters argued that they were being singled out because of the school’s anti-elitist image and “Sin City” location. Tarkanian also had a habit of recruiting players with troubled pasts and for fielding teams with woeful academic records. Talk show host and Las Vegas native Jimmy Kimmel appears often to describe the thrill of the Rebels’ run. In a town that catered to visitors, Tarkanian’s team was one of the few things Las Vegas residents could call their own.

He told her he had a girlfriend, but said nothing about the fact that I was standing right there. She ended the telephone call with, “Love you,” and he mumbled softly back, “Love you.” He didn’t want me to hear. His defense was that he has known this woman for 25 years and she always ends her conversations this way and he just repeats it. He claims I am insecure. He says he only loves me and would never play mind games. He also claims this woman will always just be a friend and nothing more. I told him that out of respect for me, he shouldn’t have said “love you” back to her. At least he shouldn’t have tried to hide it from me. What do you think? — Doris

Powerful quake, tsunami kill hundreds

Revitalization district sought downtown

By Malcolm Foster Associated Press Writer

TOKYO — For more than two terrifying, seemingly endless minutes Friday, the most powerful earthquake ever recorded in Japan shook apart homes and buildings, cracked open highways and unnerved even those who have learned to live with swaying skyscrapers. Then came a devastating tsunami that slammed into northeastern Japan and killed hundreds of people. The violent wall of water swept away houses, cars and ships. Fires burned out of control. Power to cooling systems at two nuclear power plants was knocked out, forcing thousands of nearby residents to be evacuated. A boat was caught in the vortex of a whirlpool at sea. The death toll rose steadily throughout the day, but the true extent of the disaster was not known because roads to the worst-hit areas were washed away or blocked by debris and airports were closed. After dawn today, the scale of destruction became clearer. Aerial scenes of the town of Ofunato showed homes and warehouses in ruins. Sludge and high water spread over acres of land, with people seeking refuge on roofs of partially submerged buildings. At one school, a large white “SOS” had been spelled out in English. Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano said an initial assessment found “enormous damage,” adding that the Defense Ministry was sending troops to the hardest-hit region. President Barack Obama pledged U.S. assistance following what he called a potentially “catastrophic” disaster. He said one U.S. aircraft carrier is already in Japan and a second was on its way. A U.S. ship was also heading to the Marianas Islands to assist as needed, he added. The entire Pacific had been put on alert — including coastal areas of South America, Canada and Alaska — but waves were not as bad as expected. The magnitude-8.9 offshore quake struck at 2:46 p.m. local time and was the biggest to hit Japan since record-keeping began in the

BOTTOM LINE City commissioners will consider taking the first step to creating a Neighborhood Revitalization district for a new downtown office building for Treanor Architects.

BACKGROUND Lawrence-based Treanor Architects is proposing to relocate its headquarters to a vacant building at 1040 Vt. The building would be renovated and a second story would be added. But Treanor is asking the city to rebate a portion of the new property taxes the improved property would pay. The city could use the Neighborhood Revitalization Act to rebate a portion of

late 1800s. It ranked as the fifth-largest earthquake in the world since 1900 and was nearly 8,000 times stronger than one that devastated Christchurch, New Zealand, last month, scientists said. The quake shook dozens of cities and villages along a 1,300-mile stretch of coast and tall buildings swayed in Tokyo, hundreds of miles from the epicenter. Prime Minister Naoto Kan was attending a parliamentary session at the time. “I thought I was going to die,” said Tokyo marketing employee Koto Fujikawa. “It felt like the whole structure was collapsing.” Fujikawa, 28, was riding a monorail when the quake hit and had to later pick her way along narrow, elevated tracks to the nearest station. Minutes later, the earthquake unleashed a 23-foot tsunami along the northeastern coast of Japan near the coastal city of Sendai in Miyagi prefecture. The U.S. Geological Survey said that after the initial huge quake, there were 123 aftershocks off Japan’s main island of Honshu, 110 of them of magnitude 5.0 or higher;

A tsunami that wreaked havoc in Japan following a magnitude-8.9 earthquake didn’t have much of an impact on Hawaii, said a retired Kansas University professor vacationing there. Rick Musser, who retired from KU’s journalism faculty in 2008, watched the news overnight from his hotel in Lahaina on the island Maui. Though guests on the hotel’s ground floor were moved to upper floors of the hotel and tsunami sirens sounded, Musser said he didn’t see any major damage from his hotel window or on the television news. He said it was basically a “nonevent.” “In the rooms, it’s been a reasonably quiet night,” Musser said. As of about 7:30 a.m. local time Friday morning (11:30 a.m. CST), authorities had not yet sounded an all-clear, but Musser saw hotel employees preparing to serve breakfast on the patio, and tourists were beginning to walk around on the streets. KU has 10 students studying abroad in Japan, said Jill Jess, a KU spokeswoman. Nine of those are in Tokyo, and the university had made contact with all of them and ensured they were safe. One other KU student is in Osaka, Japan, and the university had not yet made contact with the student as of Friday morning, but had contacted the school where the student is studying.

Sister city Lawrence’s sister city of Hiratsuka, Japan, sits more than 200 miles south of the earthquake’s epicenter. Cathy Hilliard, whose husband, James, serves on the Sister Cities Advisory Board, said Friday their contacts in Japan had let them know they were OK. Hilliard said she was still waiting to hear from friends living about a half-mile from the coast. Bob Moody, a board member, said he e-mailed friends in the area and as of Friday evening had received one response. “That’s a little cause for concern,” he said. Moody said the family that contacted him was OK, though many in the city were understandably shaken. Phone lines, electricity and traffic signals were just a few things reportedly disabled by the earthquake. Some students couldn’t get home because of the traffic issues. “I wouldn’t want to be there,” he said. “It’s just a mess.” Moody said more information would likely be available as daylight hits the city. Hiratsuka is 13 hours ahead of Lawrence.

the property taxes. Under the plan, Treanor would continue to pay all the property taxes that currently are assessed on the building. But the city would rebate a portion of the tax bill that is over and above the current amount. Treanor is proposing that 95 percent of the new taxes be rebated initially, and that the rebate amount gradually falls to zero by 2022.
