THE CROWD WATCHES A BOUT BETWEEN "SHOWTIME" BRADLEY CHARLES and "Rock ‘n’ Roll" Mike Sydal during a recent Saturday night Metro Pro Wrestling match at Turner Recreation Center in Kansas City, Kan.

KANSAS CITY, KAN. — Backstage, a group of costumeclad men in their 20s — and some in their late 30s — get ready for the show. A small but muscular blond man wearing only tights does calisthenics in the hallway. They call him “Dingo.” He’s allegedly from Australia, the flag of his native land emblazoned on the backside of his tights. A middle-aged man, wearing pajamas, a wig, eyeliner and a neck brace hobbles around. He looks a like an aging, poor man’s Jack Spar-

row, and they call him the “Magic Man.” “Do they want me injured or uninjured?” the Magic Man says gruffly, trying to decide if he’ll need the crutch. A group of four men — two clean-cut guys in super hero tights and two short, pudgy, scraggly men — talk shop and lightly smack each other on the chests. Inside the Turner Recreation Center in Kansas City, Kan., 250 rowdy fans wait for this cast of characters to emerge from behind the curtain. Fans will be treated to three hours of humor, choreographed violence, loud thuds, hair pulling and loosely scripted conspiracy theories. In other words, a typical Saturday night in Metro Pro Wrestling.

Len Nichols, a national expert in health care policy, said although the federal government passed and signed into law the Affordable Care Act two years ago, it is far from a done deal. He believes the Supreme Court will not rule the entire bill as unconstitutional this summer, and therefore, its fate will be determined during this year’s presidential election. That’s when the bill could be erased or changed. “We are divided as Nichols a nation. We’ve reached an impasse,” he said. “We will know a lot more in January than we do now.” Nichols, director of the Center for Health Policy Research and Ethics at George Mason University, spoke about federal health reform Sunday afternoon during a 90-minute program at Plymouth Congregational Church in downtown Lawrence that was attended by about 100 people. Nichols said the Affordable Care Act is about getting health costs under control and expanding health care access to the poor. It also gets rid of fee-for-service medicine and instead provides fundamental incentives. “The misconception is that it’s a government takeover, but it’s not. It’s about transforming a system that’s not working,” he said. “It’s a moral thing and a cost thing.”

Doctor shortage After Nichols briefly spoke, a panel of five local health experts weighed in. Among them was Lawrence Memorial Hospital President and CEO Gene Meyer, who said there will be a shortage of primary care doctors to handle the approximately 10,000 newly insured patients in Douglas County in 2014 when the insurance mandate kicks in.

FRANCES PETERSON Frances Peterson, age 94 of Cedar Hill, Texas, passed away March 10, 2012. She was born June 8, 1917 in Mansfield, TX. Frances married John Peterson, May 17, 1952 in Washington D.C. Frances worked a number of years for the U.S. Treasury Dept. and retired in 1974 and moved to a rural home in Douglas County, Kansas, that same year. In 1992 they moved to the city of Lawrence, Kansas and later moved to Cedar Hill, Texas in 2007. She was active in numerous community and civic organizations, including the Lawrence Chamber Orchestra, Nature Conservancy, Douglas County Historical Society, League of Women Voters and a member of the Trinity Lutheran Church of Lawrence. Frances was preceded in death by her

parents, Ed & Millie Bailey; one brother, William “Bill” Bailey; one sister, Marie Peterson Vincent; and her husband John, Sept. 22, 2009. She is survived by her brother, David Bailey of Cedar Hill, TX; sister-in-law, Justine Kloepper of Medford, Oregon; and many nieces and nephews. Funeral Services will be 2:00 pm Tuesday, March 13, 2012 at Jaynes Memorial Chapel in Duncanville, TX. A Memorial Service in Lawrence, KS will be announced at a later date. Frances will be interred in the Pioneer Cemetery in Lawrence, Kansas. Please sign this guestbook at obituaries.ljworld. com.


Medicare system, and it receives a higher satisfaction rate in surveys than other insurance plans. She said during 57 town hall meetings, she heard time and again how much Kansans liked Medicare. “Medicare is government health care,” she said in a whisper, which caused laughter from the audience. “Don’t tell anyone.”


“Lower your expectations,” he said. “The ability to get in and receive the high quality health care that you’ve come to enjoy will be compromised by this law,” he said. “We do not have the provider system set up to handle that new bulk of folks who will be using health care.” Meyer said there are 2,000 pages of health reform, and LMH officials have spent a lot of time and money on figuring out to comply with those regulations. He said every new job that has been created at LMH during the past three years has been a compliance position instead of one that provides health care.

Affordability? Laura Nash, a part-time nurse, said her employer didn’t offer health insurance, and she couldn’t afford it on her salary. She wondered how the Affordable Care Act would help her.

boos as rock music blares. Just like in the old days of professional wrestling, it’s still the good guys vs. the bad guys. Carrying championship belts, Jeremy Wyatt and Bradley “Showtime” Charles are clearly bad guys. They get heckled by the crowd. A few of the fans spew expletive-laced tirades at Wyatt and Charles. Wyatt gives it right back. He asks the camera guy if they’re getting one raucous fan on camera, then turns to the fan. “He needs the air time. It’s been a while since his family’s been on ‘COPS,’” taunts Wyatt, who’s as ready with the one-liners as a seasoned comedian. Nothing is out of bounds for Wyatt. He picks on one man, pointing out some missing teeth. Another portly fan gets a wisecrack about cholesterol. It’s all in good fun, and the hecklers seem to revel in the witty banter. There’s some kind of story line playing out that’s a little difficult to follow. Wyatt and Charles allude to an “alliance” they’re working on. At various points during the show, a gray-haired man in a suit and knee-high galoshes cruises around the ring with a microphone. He talks about a commissioner election and alleges some form of untoward shenanigans about the voting. As the first match gets under way, “Showtime” begins grabbing his braids and mimics his head being jerked back, accusing his opponent of illegally pulling his hair mid-move. The bald referee, however, has no sympathy, and neither do the fans. The spectators, who include a wide mix of young and old, male and female, hang on every word. They’re a dedicated crowd, said Chris Gough, who brought Metro Pro Wrestling to the area in 2010. Gough scurries around coordinating the live show, then produces a television version of the monthly shows for Time Warner Cable’s Metro Sports. After graduating with a broadcast journalism degree from the University of Missouri, Gough spent about six years working for the World Wrestling Federation, or the WWF — now known as the WWE — including several years on the creative writing team. Gough moved back to the area in 2003 to work for Metro Sports, where he produces and anchors numerous sports shows. He loosely scripts the storylines and gives the wrestlers wide latitude to improvise during the shows. The Metro Pro roster includes about 35 wrestlers, such as “The Danimal,” “Hoodlum and “Viking Warrior.” The colorful crew can be lumped into three categories, Gough said. Some wrestlers are working their way up the independent wrestling circuit, traveling the country trying to catch the eye of the WWE; a few others have had their 15 minutes of fame on big time television but just can’t give it up. And the third batch? “A lot of them are just weekend warriors,” Gough said.

‘Redneck who loves to fight’ Trevor Murdoch has seen the big stage, spending several years wrestling in front of thousands for the WWF. Today, he’s closer to his Eldon, Mo., home, wrestling for Metro Pro and a host of other independent wrestling circuits. At 33, he looks 10 years older, his knees covered in scars. He says the boots cover up the bruises. “I get beat up really well,” he says, laughing. At about 6-foot-3, 260 pounds, Murdoch, in tights and a cutoff flannel

shirt, looks nothing like the muscle-bound wrestlers seen on TV. Flabby, with an emerging beer gut, Murdoch says his appearance has always played well with his character: the blue collar, moral enforcer. “I’m basically just a redneck that loves to fight,” he says. When asked to describe his character, Murdoch says, “Right is right, and wrong is wrong.” He’s just there to make sure people abide the golden rule and treat one another kindly, he says. At age 20, Murdoch trained to be a welder. Six months later, homesick, he returned to his childhood hometown of Fredericktown, Mo. His brother was starting an independent wrestling company, and Murdoch signed up. He’s been hooked ever since, rising to the biggest stage in professional wrestling. But after a few years, his body and character wore out on national television, and now he’s back on the small circuit. None of it seems to bother Murdoch, who talks about giving fans an economical entertainment option on the weekends; tickets range from $5 to $20 here at Metro Pro Wrestling. “I hope they come in here for the two and a half hours and forget everything,” he says. “Hopefully they can identify with us in a certain way that helps them relax.” Murdoch, one of the good guys, gets a roaring ovation from the crowd when he enters the ring. His blue-collar character contrasts perfectly with that of his opponent, a loud-mouthed husky man in a black and pink spandex singlet who calls himself “Mr. Saturday Night.” “Don’t you know who I am?” Mr. Saturday Night screams at the crowd. Murdoch’s first move of the match is a quick kick to Mr. Saturday Night’s backside. The crowd loves it.

‘Mad Dog’ At age 32, Mark “Mad Dog” McDowell, took up professional wrestling. He was a football and track athlete growing up, and always liked wrestling, so he dived in headfirst, despite the late start. “Once you stop is when you start aging,” says McDowell, now 37. “And I’m not ready to age yet.” Last year, McDowell put about 16,000 miles on his car driving from his Des Moines, Iowa, home to various events across the country. At about 300 pounds, he looks less like an athlete and more like the kind of guy you wouldn’t mess with in a bar fight. His body is sure to take a thrashing in the ring. “Everything hurts, but you just keep going,” he says. Mad Dog is a fan favorite, and with mutton chop sideburns, he plays the gentle giant. “But just like a mad dog, if you turn your back on him, you’re going to get bit,” he says. Greeted by a chorus of “woof woof,” McDowell enters the ring. As the announcer calls out the weight of his opponent, Neil “Diamond” Cutter, it’s clear where this is headed. “At 145 pounds ... ” booms the announcer. The match is filled with humorous moments, as Cutter, maybe 5 foot 3, tries unsuccessfully to lift McDowell. One time, Cutter jumps from the turnbuckle for a flying attack of some sort, and McDowell calmly catches him, mid-air. But to even the match, Cutter gets a little help from his friends, the ragtag tag-team duo known as the “Hooligans.” Potbellied, with shaved heads and scraggly beards, the Hooligans sneak to the ring and beat up on McDowell as Cutter distracts the referee. McDowell overcomes his sneak attack and eventually smothers Cutter for the win. Afterward, a sheepish Cutter shies away from a post-match

Heroes for Hire During the work week, James Reynolds, 28, works “a factory job.” His good friend, Zach Thompson, 26, works at a gym, greeting people and handing out towels. But nearly every weekend, the two drive from Des Moines to small gyms across the country and become super heroes. “Typical comic book. Truth, justice,” says Reynolds of his character, Jimmy Rockwell, who teams with Thompson as the wrestling tag-team partners “Heroes for Hire.” In the ring, wearing Batman and X-Men tights, the acrobatic duo look the part. But up close on level ground, they stand under 6 feet, about 160 pounds. Maybe. So they have to be athletic, orchestrating highflying moves in the ring. And their clean-cut appearance and good-guy image fits well against their rougher opponents. “We’re the classic, clean heroes, and they’re the dirty villains,” Thompson says about the night’s opponents, the Hooligans. “It’s perfect.” Despite their small statures, the Heroes for Hire don’t seem resigned to performances in small gyms on the independent circuit. “I just want to do as much as I can,” Reynolds says. “The bigger the show, the better.” Their friendship has been built over six years of wrestling and traveling together. While it helps to be in sync in the ring, getting along with each other is more important on those long trips. “Someone you can stand to sit by,” says Reynolds. “And split gas,” pipes in Thompson, adding that they’re lucky to break even on their trips. Pay varies in Metro Pro, and wrestlers can make anywhere from $50 to $500 a performance. On the long drives, the two go over story ideas for their shows. “You’re building the story of the match,” Thompson says. “And it helps to have an honest, friendly ear. It’s easier to shut it down if it does suck. And easier to put an idea out there if you’re friends.” In the ring, they work together on their acrobatics; one lifting the other to the turnbuckle for a flying maneuver. When one gets in trouble in the ring, it’s easy to believe that the other half — straining over the ropes for a tag — just wants to help his buddy out. More than anything, they say the ring provides a nice escape from the 9-to5 work week grind — for themselves and the fans. “I’m dressed up like Wolverine right now,” Reynolds says. “I’m going to fight two rough dudes. It’s going to be great.” — Reporter Shaun Hittle can be reached at 832-7173. Follow him at

BRIEFLY Mother, 3 children die in western Kansas fire

2012 queen of the green crowned

SCOTT CITY — A house fire in a small western Kansas town has killed a mother and her three children. Scott City Police Sgt. Andy Newland says the fire started Saturday morning near a radiator heater in the laundry room of a two-bedroom house in Scott City. The cause is under investigation. The 28-year-old mother called to report the fire. But she was disabled and couldn’t get herself out of the home. The mother, a 4-year-old boy and two girls, ages 6 and 8, were overcome by smoke. One child died initially, while the mother and two other children were flown to Wichita where they died Saturday afternoon. Newland declined to release the names of the victims. Scott City is about 30 miles north of Garden City.

Pell Grant use surges at JUCOs GARDEN CITY — A study of Kansas community colleges shows the number of students receiving federal financial aid jumped dramatically as the nation struggled to recover from the recession. Called “Powered By Pell: A Grassroots Perspective,” the study focuses on the flow of federal student aid across 17 of the state’s 19 community colleges. It found that from fall 2008 to fall 2010, the number of Pell Grants spiked by 75 percent, with 8,862 new grant awards. Simultaneously, Pell Grant dollars allocated to students at the Kansas institutions soared from approximately $20.5 million to about $40.4 million. The only two community colleges not to participate are in Pratt and Kansas City, Kan. The study found nearly half of the college credits earned by Kansas community college students are funded, at least in part, by Pell Grants.

St. Patrick’s Day group honors parade veteran By Chris Hong

On the northeastern edge of town, a 25-year tradition took place yet again: A queen was chosen for the Lawrence St. Patrick’s Day Parade. After a year of fundraising efforts and plenty of good times, parade supporters gathered at the Flamingo Club, 501 N. Ninth St., for the coronation dinner. Since January, the six candidates worked events

and collected donations for the committee’s fundraisers. “Without them, we wouldn’t be able to have as many events as we did,” said Katelyn Affalter, the 2010 queen. “They’re the heart and soul.” This year’s queen candidates were Ally Munk, Alex Akers, Audrey Pope, Cassie Weatherwax, Chelsea Jennings and Lacey Johnson. Most of them were encouraged by

friends to be candidates on behalf of charities. Akers said it is a major time commitment but one that is a lot of fun. “It’s all for the kids; it’s worth it,” Akers said. Terry Bowen, a fifthyear committee member, said the coronation was the final preparation for the parade. Then again, she said, all the events are kind of a preparation.

House to debate major tax bill Debate is scheduled for today on a sweeping change in Kansas tax policy that is being pushed by House Republican leaders. The proposal would reduce state income tax rates, eliminate taxes on nonwage business income and limit growth in state budget revenue to no more than 2 percent per year. It would also decrease the Earned Income Tax Credit and increase the standard deduction for heads of household. House Republican leaders say the proposal will spur economic development.

But revenue estimates show that the plan would hike tax rates for the lowest income earners in Kansas. And the GOP plan has also been criticized for delaying fund transfers to the highway program. Democrats and some Republicans have also said the 2 percent cap on budget growth is unrealistic because of increasing funding needs after years of budget cuts that were made during the recession.

U.S. sergeant kills 16 in Afghan villages


After all the votes were cast, the committee members announced the parade’s grand marshal and the senior queen and king. The grand marshal, Mike Rebich, stumbled upon the first-ever parade during a stop in Lawrence while working for ABC Sports. Although he lives in Georgia, he has remained a part of the parade ever since. Dwayne and Ruby Peaslee were honored as the senior king and queen for their longtime support of the community. Next, the queen candidates took the stage and were handed bouquets of roses. Affalter, the 2010 queen, opened an envelope and announced Weatherwax the winner. Weatherwax, a Lawrence native, told the crowd it would be her 12th year in the parade. Many in attendance have been involved since the beginning. Throughout the night, a projector displayed photos from the past 25 years. “Smiles, drinking beer, having fun and raising kids,” said Mike Lohmann, chairman for the historical committee, to the crowd. “This is what it’s been all about.”

BALANDI, AFGHANISTAN — Moving from house to house, a U.S. Army sergeant opened fire Sunday on Afghan villagers as they slept, killing 16 people — mostly women and children — in an attack that reignited fury at the U.S. presence following a wave of deadly protests over Americans burning Qurans. The attack threatened the deepest breach yet in U.S.-Afghan relations, raising questions both in Washington and Kabul about why American troops are still fighting in Afghanistan after 10 years of conflict and the killing of Osama bin Laden. The slayings are some of the worst atrocities committed by U.S. forces during the Afghan War. According to U.S. and Afghan officials, Sunday’s attack began around 3 a.m. in two villages in Panjwai district.

Meth battle State lawmakers should look again at making a drug essential to methamphetamine production even harder to buy.


recent Journal-World story explored the explosion of methamphetamine use in four rural counties in southeast Kansas. Law enforcement officials attribute the rise in meth use to new, easier ways to make the drug, known as the “one-pot” or “shake and bake” method. Doctors, pharmacists, law enforcement and drug treatment providers in the region say there’s only one way to keep meth out of their communities: make pseudoephedrine, which is needed in any meth-making process, a prescription-only drug. While Kansans don’t need a prescription for products containing pseudoephedrine, such as Claritin and Sudafed, a 2005 state law keeps those drugs behind the counter and restricts the amount someone can buy. A measure to make pseudoephedrinecontaining products prescription-only was considered during the 2011 legislative session, but failed to make it out of committee. In the current session, the measure didn’t receive a hearing. The pharmaceutical industry opposes such a law, probably because it would reduce sales. Allergy sufferers and some in the health care field oppose the law because it would make medications more difficult and expensive to obtain for legitimate medical needs. The reaction from the pharmacy industry is mixed. Pharmacies don’t reap a lot of revenue from pseudoephedrine-containing products, but some oppose such a law because it might decrease access for lowincome customers. Those are legitimate concerns, but according to officials in southeast Kansas, they pale by comparison to the social and economic toll meth takes on cashstrapped communities. They point to Oregon, one of only two states that has made pseudoephedrine prescriptiononly. The Oregon law went into effect in 2006. In 2005, Oregon reported 192 meth lab incidents — on par with the 2011 Kansas tally of 187. In 2011, Oregon law enforcement reported just nine such incidents. That decline is even more impressive considering the recent rise in meth lab incidents in Kansas and elsewhere after years of decline. The ease of producing meth using the one-pot method has only surfaced in the last couple of years, and officials in southeast Kansas warn it’s only a matter of time before other parts of the state see a rise in meth production. This matter deserves the state’s attention. It’s probably too late to take action during the current legislative session, but before next year, legislators should take a look at what other states are doing to curb meth production and reconsider the idea of making pseudoephedrine a prescription-only drug.

Pressure tactics could work in Iran WASHINGTON — At the end of another week of near-constant talk about war with Iran, here’s one counterintuitive possibility: The Obama administration, in its eagerness to deter an Israeli strike, has committed itself to a pressure campaign that, if pursued vigorously, could eventually lead to regime change in Iran. President Obama’s pledge of escalating economic, political and other pressure on Iran goes to that regime’s weak link. For the mullahs’ greatest vulnerability is their

Now that the squeeze on Iran has begun, there’s a potential risk if it stops too quickly, leaving a damaged but still potent Iran seething for vengeance.”

political structure, which is divided and unpopular, rather than their nuclear program, which appears to have fairly broad domestic support. And this political foundation may be shaken by the campaign that is under way. The clerical regime isn’t an explicit target for the U.S., but it’s at growing risk because of the forces now in motion. Month by month, sanctions and other activities will undermine the regime’s political and financial base — squeezing the Iranian leadership and tempting it to take rash actions that would trigger a devastating response. The situation resembles a hunting trap that gets tighter the harder the prey tries to escape. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta made that explicit when he said Thursday that the U.S. was preparing military options should non-

military pressure fail. Ironically, the worst option in terms of regime change would probably be a unilateral Israeli military strike. Given limited Israeli capabilities, a strike would do enough damage to rally political support behind the Iranian leadership (and deflect the Arab Spring) but not enough to cripple the nuclear effort. An Iranian opposition leader told me last week that such an attack would be “a gift from God for the mullahs,” enhancing their political position rather than weakening it. What has emerged from last week’s U.S.-Israeli discussions is a sort of tag team: The West is moving toward what it describes as crippling sanctions, while Israel waits restlessly outside the ring, apparently eager to jump in and strike a military blow. This combined pressure has already brought Iran back to the negotiating table, which is welcome, but hardly a reason for the West to back off. As the sanctions bite deeper into Iran’s oil exports and revenues, further enfeebling the regime, Tehran may have to contemplate the kind of negotiated settlement that Ayatollah Khomeini once likened to drinking from a “cup of poison.” Or, the regime may lash

out with military action of its own — a dangerous course given America’s overwhelming retaliatory power and the ability of Israel and Saudi Arabia to absorb Iran’s initial punch. For Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, it’s a double bind: If he offers a deal on the nuclear program that would be acceptable to the West, he risks undermining what he sees as the regime’s legitimacy. But if he doesn’t offer a deal, the steady squeeze will continue. Eventually, something’s got to give. Karim Sadjadpour, an Iran expert at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace whose views are closely studied at the Obama White House, argues that the Iranian regime is gradually bleeding itself to death for the sake of its nuclear program. He likens the process to the demise of the Soviet Union, which bankrupted itself in an arms race with the United States. Sadjadpour likes to invoke an old saying on the dilemma facing dictators: “While these regimes are in power, their collapse seems inconceivable. But after they’ve collapsed, we say that it was inevitable.” Iran, he argues, is “at the crossroads of that maxim.” Now that the squeeze on


Family planning To the editor: When Craig Tucker writes in his March 4 letter that every Catholic he knows practices birth control, was he referring to natural family planning or the use of contraceptive devices? Clarification would have been good. I would hope sincere, practicing Catholics would not have chosen the latter. Donna M. Krische, Lawrence

Another option To the editor: I am beginning to feel sorry for the pasty-faced white Republican men who believe they have the right to restrict access to women’s contraceptives. The women are getting angry, thinking 21st century men are laughing, and the polls for these evangelical know-it-all right-wingers are sinking fast. But I think I have a solution. If we want to stop all contraceptives for women and still avoid an avalanche of children, we should provide saltpeter for these primitive, ultra conservative men. For those not old enough to know what saltpeter is, it is a pill that prohibits an erection. No one gets hurt, and the evangelicals save face. Do you think it’s possible that our Republican candidates and Rush will go along with my solution? E. Kent Hayes, Lawrence

Children are publicly embarrassed by this. We silence children as they develop a tendency to not ask questions when this information is fed to them in public classrooms. There is a positive solution. Parents frequently are perceived as “not intelligent” by young people, especially during their teenage years, only later to find out that their parents were smarter than they thought when they were younger. Public schools listened to teenagers, perhaps ignoring parents’ better judgment. It is only later that we’re finding out that parents may have been correct about their children from the start. Parents don’t need public classrooms presenting information about anatomy and sexual development to their young children. It seems parents have been perceived as not capable of handling this sensitive information with their children. Schools balked on a golden opportunity to involve parents in their children’s education. Involving parents would be the natural solution. It has been a lament that parents are not involved in their children’s education. If schools (and now social welfare agencies) were concerned that parents become more involved in the lives of their children, we’ve missed a golden opportunity. Instead of presenting this sensitive information to a classroom of young children, perhaps parents would meet for helpful advice on talking with their children about sexual development. Next thing you’re going to tell me is that parents would never meet together in a pubTo the editor: lic room to talk about sexual I recently stated it is inapdevelopment and such sensipropriate to present young tive information. children information about anatomy and sexual developJulie Steward, ment in public classrooms. Lawrence tive mandate as an attack on religious freedom, particularly the Catholic Church. Nonsense. His position conveniently ignores several salient facts: Studies have shown that no less than 98 percent of Catholics have used contraception. Like most employers, the archdiocese pays a portion of the health insurance coverage for employees; the employee pays the rest. Is it fair to say that contraception care is paid for by the employee who uses it (and has a co-pay) and not the church? At least 26 states already have laws that require insurance companies to provide coverage for contraception, including such dark red states as Georgia, Texas and Virginia. Georgia’s law is among several that do not allow for an employer or employee to opt out of paying for the coverage for religious or moral reasons. The Georgia law was passed over 20 years ago by a Republican legislature and signed by a Republican governor. Catholic institutions in the state have been adhering to the law without a peep. Is it fair to say that the outrage now is a political ploy? And finally, my favorite, insurance plans universally pay for Viagra. Men can play, but women can’t? It is clear this latest tempest in a teapot is just another political attack meant to rally the troops of the conservatives against the president’s administration. Doug Burger, Lawrence

A political ploy Involve parents To the editor: I wish to respond to Scott Burkhart’s letter of March 7. Mr. Burkhart gives voice to the latest culture war salvo of the Republican Party, decrying the proposed contracep-

Iran has begun, there’s a potential risk if it stops too quickly, leaving a damaged but still potent Iran seething for vengeance. That early termination could happen through a quick U.N. ceasefire after a unilateral Israeli strike, or because the West calls off sanctions prematurely, leaving Iran’s nuclear tool kit still largely intact. The West has an additional hidden capability in this crisis, between sanctions and open military conflict. It’s a way of increasing the cost of Iran’s actions, short of war. Officials don’t usually talk about this terrain of “covert action,” for obvious reasons, but it’s easy to imagine what might be possible: Defense-related research facilities could be disrupted; financial and other commercial records could be scrambled. And these are just the non-lethal options. “You can cause a lot of mischief inside Iran,” says one foreign official. The pressure campaign now under way may not force Iran’s current leadership to make a deal, this official notes, but it increases the chance that the regime will sink as a result of its own defiant behavior. — David Ignatius is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.



Girl Scouts from Lawrence and Perry had gathered at South Park on a YEARS recent afternoon AGO to celebrate the IN 1987 75th anniversary of the organization. A balloon release had been part of the festivities. Kansas University basketball fans were gathering in Atlanta for the first-round NCAA tournament game against the University of Houston. Meanwhile, up on campus, KU’s University Council had voted that student-athletes would continue to be able to enroll before other students so that they could fit their class schedules around practice times.


From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for March 12, 1912: YEARS “The Union PacifAGO ic is again without IN 1912 trains from the west, there having been no trains through since Friday night.... For a while it was thought that the road would be opened and that train service could be resumed but the continuing of the storm blocked the road again. The trains are stalled in snowbanks between Wilson and Page, Kansas.” — Compiled by Sarah St. John

Uh-oh, Sully: Detroit it is Remember column subject Sully, the guy with a Jayhawk tattooed on each shoulder? He was the guy who thought Turner Gill should start Christian Matthews in the final Border War football game and was proven right when Kansas moved the football better when Matthews was under center. Then Matthews inexplicably was removed from the game, at which point everything stalled. Well, just the other day Sully rolled down the window of his car pretty much wall-to-wall decorated with Jayhawk stickers, and, his blood pressure soaring toward the clouds, randomly blurted out, “If there’s one team I don’t want any part of, it’s Detroit. Those guys are awesome.” Then he drove off as I wondered if he ever would calm down and enjoy life, you know, play a round of golf or something. I didn’t give it another thought until the NCAA pairings were released Sunday night. Uh-oh. The University of Detroit Mercy sounds like a churchleague team in much the same manner Kevin Love sounds like a soft name for a basketball player. By now everybody knows that Detroit has one more McDonald’s All-American (one, Ray McCallum Jr.) than Kansas (zero, even though No. 0 is a lock for first-team All-America honors.) What many don’t know is that Eli’s comin’, so don’t hide your heart medicine. He’s a scary guy. Campus police on more than one college campus are on a firstname basis with Eli Holman. Holman, the Albert Belle of college basketball, stands 6-foot-10, weighs 260 pounds and throws a mean fastball. Not with a baseball. With a potted plant. Back when Kelvin Sampson was in the throes of a calling-recruits-on-his-cellphone addiction and was fired for it, Holman was a Hoosier. Players were leaving at such a rapid rate new coach Tom Crean must have been fantasizing about what life would have been like with the ball in Tyshawn Taylor’s hands had the coach not left Marquette. Crean tried to convince Holman to stay. Eli told the coach he needed to transfer to a school closer to his home in Richmond, Calif. Holman lost it and reportedly hurled a potted plant. A coach phoned campus police because, Crean later said, he viewed him as “a danger to himself.” Crean has the Hoosiers back in the same tournament in which Taylor, Holman and Marquette are partaking. Eli transferred to Detroit, putting him a mere 2,400 miles from home, 140 miles farther than when he was a Hoosier. Holman averaged 11.8 points and 8.9 rebounds for Detroit as a sophomore and had similar statistics as a junior (11.8, 9.6) and was a big reason Detroit was expected to win the Horizon League until news broke in September that he had gone on an indefinite absence to

Kansas draws Detroit in Omaha, Neb. By Gary Bedore

Kansas University basketball coach Bill Self on Sunday told his players to not expect a No. 1 seed in the 2012 NCAA Tournament. “We blew that by not performing better in Kansas City,” Self said of his prebarbecue dinner message to the Jayhawks (27-6). “We were on the 1 line, all that stuff. We needed to

play better against Baylor, and we didn’t,” added Self, whose Jayhawks fell to the Bears, 81-72, in Friday’s Big 12 tourney semifinals in Kansas City, Mo. Calling himself a “numbers guy,” Self correctly pegged KU’s position in the NCAAs. “I knew we’d be a No. 2-seed. I just didn’t know where,” he said, not shocked a bit when announcer Greg Gumbel revealed on the

CBS-TV Selection Sunday show that KU had landed a 2 in the Midwest Regional. The Jayhawks will meet No. 15 seed University of Detroit Mercy at 8:57 p.m. Friday at CenturyLink Center in Omaha, Neb. The winner will meet Purdue or St. Mary’s at a yet-to-be-determined time Sunday (game time will be announced after Friday’s games). Two victories in Omaha would guarantee a spot in the Sweet 16 the follow-

ing Friday in St. Louis. No. 3-seed Georgetown is a possible Sweet 16 foe; former KU coach Roy Williams’ North Carolina Tar Heels are a No. 1 seed in the region and possible Elite Eight opponent. KU was the highest-rated of the No. 2s, followed by Duke, Ohio State and Missouri. MU is off to the West Regional, joining KU in Omaha

Top Titan familiar with KU ————

Jayhawks among big-name schools that wooed McCallum By Matt Tait

Throughout the years, very few opposing coaches who faced Kansas University in the NCAA Tournament have gotten the kind of look at KU’s program that University of Detroit Mercy coach Ray McCallum received a little more than two years ago. McCallum, now in his fourth season at Detroit, which will face KU at 8:57 p.m. Friday in a secondround NCAA Tournament game in Omaha, Neb., found himself locked in a unique recruiting battle for one of the top guards in the country. On one side were perennial powers such as Kansas,

Florida and UCLA. On the other was McCallum and his rebuilding Horizon League program. The object of their affection was a young man named Ray McCallum Jr., the Detroit head coach’s son, and because of that, McCallum operated as part-father and part-recruiter throughout his son’s final year of high school. Some nights that meant in-home visits and quaint conversations with big-time head coaches like Bill Self, Billy Donovan and Ben Howland. Other nights, that meant trying to knock the stars out of his son’s eyes while selling the hometown Titans. “He had a visit out there that he’ll never forget,” said McCallum by telephone, re-

calling his son’s recruiting trip to KU. “He actually mentioned that the other day. He went out for (Late Night), and they got their (2008) national championship rings that night, and I know that made a big-time impression on him.” As the recruitment unfolded and the other schools began to fill their rosters, the 6-foot-2 McDonald’s AllAmerican began to warm to the idea of playing for his father. “He wanted to look at the very best programs, and I know he was flattered that KU looked at him,” McCallum said. “I think it was important that he go through

It seems clear that the cases for and against Kansas What: NCAA University’s women’s baswomen’s ketball team being included selection in the NCAA Tournament show field are pretty equal. When: 6 “I think we’ve shown that tonight if you look at the talent and depth of this league, get us TV: ESPN (cable chan- all out of here and put us in Please see KEEGAN, page 3B nels 33, 233) the tournament and we’ll all

win,” KU coach Bonnie Henrickson said. “If you put us in the NCAA Tournament, we’ll all win games. There’s no doubt about that.” The Jayhawks, who lost to No. 3 seed Texas A&M in the quarterfinals of the Big 12 tournament on Thursday in Kansas City, Mo., finished the regular season in sixth place in the 10-team Big 12. KU, Texas and Oklahoma State each piled up 8-10

league records, but the Jayhawks won the tiebreaker because they beat UT and OSU three of the four times they played them. “We earned a sixth seed,” she said. “It wasn’t a coin flip. In the tiebreaker, we won the pool.” The principle strengths of KU’s argument go like this: five league road wins, a quality victory at Oklahoma on the final day of the regular

season and a sixth-place finish in the conference. The argument against Kansas is made up of: a 4-10 record to close the season, late home losses to Missouri and Oklahoma State and no Carolyn Davis, who was injured in mid-February and watched her team go 2-6 without her. All of the debate and waiting will come to a close tonight, when the women’s bracket is revealed at 6 p.m.

Stewart’s gamble pays in Vegas LAS VEGAS (AP) — Timing the restart perfectly, Tony Stewart dove to the edge of the apron and ducked under the two cars in front of him. With one bold move, the defending Sprint Cup champion was on his way to a redemptive win. Stewart made a three-wide pass on a late restart and held off Jimmie Johnson at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on Sunday, winning at a track that was the site of his biggest disappointment last season. “We had to wait 365 days for a shot at it again,� Stewart said. “I

might not have been so mad on the airplane had I known I was going to win a year later.� Stewart came back to Las Vegas with a new crew chief and the hope of having a little better luck than he had a year ago, when a pit mishap spoiled a chance at victory with what he believed to be the best car in the field. With Steve Addington calling the shots from the pit box, Stewart again had a good car in his return trip to the desert, uncatchable on the restarts and good enough to hold off Johnson, Greg Biffle and anyone else who tried to track him down.

“It’s been a long time since I’ve seen a car that fast,� said Biffle, who finished third. “On the restarts, I’ve just never seen a car driving off like that.� Stewart got the lead with a did-he-just-do-that move with 34 laps to go in the 400-mile race. Coming around turn 4 to the start/finish line, Stewart charged up behind Brad Keselowski and timed it just right to dip below him on the apron. He zipped to the front and stayed there, pulling away on three more less-thrilling restarts over the final 17 laps. It


Momentum overrated in NCAAs By Chris Dufresne Los Angeles Times

Here’s to the big-time basketball teams that geared up for runs to this year’s NCAA championship by spitting up bits but not seeds. Congratulations to Final Four favorites Kentucky, Kansas, North Carolina, Duke and Syracuse for bowing out with finalweekend defeats for the greater good of bluegrass, rock-chalk, tobacco-road and lake-effect snow. Thank goodness the NCAA selection committee, at least in the cases of Kentucky and Syracuse, had already made up its collective mind. Kentucky coach John Calipari couldn’t have been more pleased with his team’s odorous Sunday performance against Vanderbilt in the Southeastern Conference tournament finals. Calipari happily handed Vanderbilt its first SEC title since 1951 and shed not one tear over his team losing its first game since Dec. 10. Kentucky, despite failing to score a basket in the final eight minutes of the SEC finals, still earned the top overall NCAA seeding. There has to be something wrong with this, right? Not in college basketball, actually, where the regular season is also known as the long, pregnant pause. Calipari thought too much winning was starting to push his team over swagger’s edge to valley floor of arrogance. Washington wasted its precious time winning the regularseason Pac-12 title and not making the NCAA tournament, while Western Kentucky lost all year in the Sun Belt but secured the league’s automatic bid in the conference tournament. Long Beach State went out and played, arguably, the toughest nonconference schedule in the history of college basketball, yet probably had to win the same Big West tournament UC Irvine (12-20) came two victories from winning. You almost had to wonder what Michigan State was thinking as it closed out Ohio State on Sunday to win the Big Ten Conference tournament. What NCAA team wants to go into the tournament with momentum? Tom Izzo’s Spartans must have got all gooey and sentimental reminiscing about 2000, the year they rode a Big Ten tournament win all the way to the NCAA championship. OK, actually, Michigan State and Ohio State were probably playing for the last top seeding. “We debated it all the way through the game,� Jeff Hathaway, the chair of this year’s NCAA selection committee, told CBS. Sunday’s bracket release was an annual reminder that the NCAA Tournament is the most fabulous three-week love-fest in sports but should never be confused with a playoff. The tournament should come with a disclaimer: “Much more fun than it is fair.�

was his sixth win in the past 13 Sprint Cup races and first on the 1.5-mile tri-oval not far from the bright lights of the The Strip. “We almost got too good a restart because I got such a good run on Brad, I almost got there too quick,� Stewart said. A year ago, Stewart appeared to be cruising to Victory Lane at Las Vegas, only to be tripped up in the pits. He was penalized for leaving his pit stall with an air hose still attached and the team opted to take two tires on a later stop to get him back to the front.

GOLF RIO GRANDE, PUERTO RICO — George McNeill birdied the last three holes for a 3-under 69 to rally past Japanese star Ryo Ishikawa and win the Puerto Rico Open. Ishikawa, on the anniversary of the earthquake and tsunami that left his homeland in ruins, closed with a 68 and had a one-shot lead. McNeill caught him with a birdie on the 16th, took the lead with a birdie on the 17th and added another birdie on the par-5 18th.

JUSTIN ROSE CELEBRATES ON THE 18TH GREEN during the final round of the Cadillac Championship. Rose fired a 2-under 70 on Sunday at Doral, Fla., and won by one stroke over Bubba Watson.


Moss to work out for 49ers SAN FRANCISCO — Wide receiver Randy Moss was set to work out Monday for the San Francisco 49ers, a person with knowledge of the situation said. Moss is attempting to make an NFL comeback after a year out of pro football. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Sunday night because it wasn’t made public that the veteran wideout would hold a session for the NFC West champion Niners a day before the start of the free agency period. The 49ers also are working to re-sign quarterback Alex Smith, the No. 1 overall draft pick in 2005, and have reportedly made him an offer. The 35-year-old Moss, who worked out last Tuesday with the New Orleans Saints, played for New England, Minnesota and Tennessee in a rocky 2010 season.

Hosmer homers in Royals’ loss to A’s PHOENIX (AP) — After a strong debut, Yoenis Cespedes struggled in his second spring game in the majors. A day after the Cuban defector homered in his first game, he went hitless in three at-bats, with a walk, in the Oakland A’s 10-8 victory over the Kansas City Royals on Sunday. “I thought he had some decent at-bats,� Oakland manager Bob Melvin said. “He didn’t have the results he had yesterday, but I think we can give him a break. We were probably all expecting him to get three more hits and hit a couple home runs, but he looks good up there. They threw him some good pitches.� Cespedes flied out, lined out and struck out. He also drew a walk and was shaken up briefly when he fouled a ball off the top of his left foot, but stayed in the game. He is 2 for 6 in his two games with the A’s, who signed him to a four-year, $36-million deal earlier this month. Cespedes, who was the designated hitter on Sunday, is scheduled to play next on Tuesday, when he’ll be back in center field. Kansas City’s Eric Hosmer drove in four runs, including two on his first homer of the spring.

Rose wins at Doral; injury shelves Woods

McNeill wins in Puerto Rico




DORAL, FLA. — On a day of endless drama at Doral, Justin Rose won his first World Golf Championship standing on the practice range. Rose had to make up a three-shot deficit against Bubba Watson, and then a two-shot deficit against Keegan Bradley. Rose was steady down the stretch, even with a bogey from the bunker on the 18th hole, and closed with a 2-under 70 to win the Cadillac Championship. Watson, as always, made it interesting. He hit a bullet of a 4-iron out of the palm trees to just inside 10 feet for a chance to force a playoff. His birdie putt missed on the low side, ending a wild day even by his standards. He closed with a 74. If that wasn’t enough, Tiger Woods muddied his Masters future when he left after 11 holes because of soreness in his left Achilles tendon, wincing badly on his final shot — a 321-yard drive down the middle of the 12th fairway. Woods said he would have it evaluated to determine the scope of the injury. NBC Sports showed images of Woods behind the wheel in a black sedan as he drove away from Doral. It returned to golf just as Rory McIlroy, who started the final round eight shots behind, holed a bunker shot for eagle on the 12th hole. McIlroy pulled within one shot of the lead with a birdie on the 16th hole, but he closed with a bogey and a 67 to finish alone in third. Through it all, Rose worked his way to the top of the leaderboard with a nifty up-and-down behind the green on the par-5 10th, and he seized control of the tournament with a shot into 5 feet for birdie on the 14th. Rose finished at 16-under 272 for his 10th victory worldwide, moving him back into the top 10 of a world ranking that remains loaded with Europeans. Former Kansas University golfer Gary Woodland closed with a 72 and finished at 5-under 283, 11 strokes back.

The 54-point victory margin is the biggest in the meet’s 30-year history. 2002 — Siena (17-18) with an 81-77 victory over Alcorn State in the play-in game, becomes first team in 47 years to win an NCAA men’s basketball tournament game with a losing record. 2003 — Damian Costantino’s NCAA-record hitting streak ends at 60 games, one day after he broke Robin Ventura’s 16-year-old mark. Costantino, an outfielder for Division III Salve Regina of Newport, R.I., fails to get a hit in the first game of a doubleheader against BaldwinWallace. It’s the first time he finishes a game hitless since March 25, 2001.

JAYHAWKS, FROM LEFT, THOMAS ROBINSON, TYSHAWN TAYLOR, Jamari Traylor and Travis Releford clap after learning they had been awarded a No. 2 seed in the Midwest Region on Sunday at KU.


for first- and secondround games with a Sweet 16 destination of Phoenix. “You could make a real strong case that Missouri’s record (30-4) and their performance through the course of the year would warrant a No. 1 seed,” Self said. “You could make a strong case that Baylor could possibly have been a 2 (instead of 3). When you have six teams in your league (Iowa State 8, Kansas State 8, Texas 11) make it and a 2, 2, and 3 ... the committee showed us some respect. I don’t think anybody in our league would be displeased with that.” KU senior Tyshawn Taylor said the Jayhawks wanted a No. 1 seed but are OK with 2. In fact, the only reason the Jayhawks appeared to be somber when the announcement was made on CBS was that there was an eight-second delay on the TV feed. In reality, KU’s players did cheer after the announcement was made. “We are excited, man,” Taylor said. “This is a chance everybody (in the country) doesn’t get. We won’t take it for granted at all. We’ll enjoy this time.” Of the Big 12 not being awarded a No. 1 seed, Taylor said: “I think if the No. 1 seed was going to go anywhere, it should have come here for sure. I don’t think they (committee) disrespected us. If we would have beaten Baylor, we would have got it (No. 1). We put it on ourselves

to get that No. 2 seed. It’s not a bad thing. They did what they thought were the best four teams or most deserving teams (UNC, Kentucky, Syracuse, Michigan State).” The Jayhawks will open in Nebraska — same place KU started its NCAA title run in 2008 — against Detroit’s Titans, who won the Horizon League tournament and went 22-13 overall. “You think of 2 and 15 in the past, you don’t see Detroit being on that 2 line,” Self said. “They are very capable. I’ve seen them play a couple times. I know their coach (Ray McCallum Sr.) well. We recruited their best player (sophomore guard/McDonald’s All-American Ray McCallum). “They’ve got five guys averaging in double figures, and Ray is good enough to play anywhere. Certainly whoever guards him, Elijah (Johnson) or Tyshawn (Taylor) will have a big challenge ahead of them. “We’re excited to be where we are at,” Self added. “I don’t know if there’s any advantage at all from being close (to home), but I’d think from a fan perspective Omaha with the potential of being in St. Louis would be good for everybody.” Self reminded the media that Detroit Mercy comes from “a league that just went to the national championship (game, represented by Butler) the last two years. It’s a very competitive league.” The Jayhawks will drive to Omaha sometime Wednesday in advance of Thursday’s open practice, set for 5:10 to 5:50 p.m. in CenturyLink Center, for-

merly known as Qwest Center. !

Tough foe: Butler coach Brad Stevens had this to say about Detroit on Twitter: “There may never have been a 15-seed that looks like Detroit.” !

Great state: KU senior Conner Teahan, on the fact KU, Kansas State (8 seed in East) and Wichita State (5 seed in South) all made the NCAAs. “I think that just talks about the universities we have in Kansas and the coaches and players. I think it’s been a great year for not only us, but K-State and Wichita State, obviously. It is really good to see the state of Kansas doing so well. I think all Kansas people should be proud of that,” Teahan said. !

Tiger talk: Missouri will meet Norfolk State at 3:40 p.m. Friday in Qwest Center. “It’ll be interesting to see how we handle that because if you remember in ’08, us and K-State were up there (Omaha) together,” Self said. “That is one time our league kind of bonded, and we cheered for each other, which was good. I can’t really see that happening (with teams in) two different leagues right now. I guess Missouri is officially out of our league (joining SEC). In all seriousness, I thought Missouri played exceptionally well this weekend (in winning Big 12 tourney). I thought they were a really good team. They had some individuals play at levels that were probably about as high as anybody has played at that tournament, ever.”

the process and visit with the very best schools that were interested in him. Once Kansas made their decision that they were set on their guards, I think the decision was easy. I really got to know the (Kansas) coaches through that recruiting process, and they do things right. Firstclass all the way. And it was good to be able to go through that with him.” It was even better to land him, because, in the two years since, McCallum Jr., has led the team in points, assists and steals and gone on to become a two-time all-Horizon League selection. He was named Newcomer of the Year following the 2010-11 season and a first-team selection this season, which he and his teammates capped by winning the Horizon League tournament last week. “He wanted to go to a place that he could play and make an impact and do what he’s accomplished here, and that’s led us to a conference championship and lead us to the NCAA Tournament,” McCallum said. “After our championship game, he said, ‘Hey, we did it. This is what we came here to do, and we did it.’” With phase one of the dream scenario now behind them, the father-son duo will shift its focus to the task of taking on the secondseeded Jayhawks (27-6). Although the process of putting together a game plan for Kansas had just begun, McCallum said he knew plenty about the Jayhawks long before learning his 15thseeded Titans (22-13) would face them Friday. “That’s the thing — every chance we get, we want to watch a Kansas play,” he said. “They’ve got good players, they’re well coached, and they’re fun to watch. They have the player of the year and another who may be a top-three team All-American. We have to contend with that, and we’re gonna have our hands full because they don’t need a play to make a play.” McCallum is certain of two things Friday. The first? McCallum believes his team will show up. “You look at our numbers, you look at the way we finished the (Horizon League) tournament and how competitive we’ve been against high-major teams … I expect for us to lace ’em up tight and go out and compete,” he said. The second? Win or lose Friday, McCallum said the 2011-12 season would go down as one he won’t forget.

COLORADO STATE’S DORIAN GREEN, RIGHT, AND PIERCE HORNUNG REACT to their draw to play Murray State in the NCAA Tournament during a news conference Sunday in Fort Collins, Colo.

LHS grad Green relishes berth By Matt Tait

For former Lawrence High standout Dorian Green, the dream run continues. After leaving Lawrence to play basketball at Colorado State University three years ago, Green found himself starting immediately for the rising Rams and coach Tim Miles. Now in his third season as a starter, Green and the Rams are headed to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2003. On Sunday, the Rams (20-11) were picked as an at-large selection and an 11 seed in the West regional. They will take on No. 6 seed Murray State (30-1) on Thursday in Louisville. CSU has reached the postseason in each of Green’s three seasons, first playing in the College Basketball Invitational following the 2009-10 season and, last year, qualifying for the NIT. Though the Rams returned a handful of talented players from last year’s team, many people were looking toward next season as the

one in which CSU would break into the Big Dance. “Yeah, that’s what a lot of people were saying,” Green said. “But we knew we had a chance to get better sooner than that. We learned a lot from last year. We were kind of in the same position we’re in this year, but we tanked it at the end of the season. And this year we won some big games down the stretch, and that experience and the togetherness of the team has really helped us.” Green’s 13.5 pointsper-game average ranks second on the team, and he played a team-best 34 minutes per game. A big reason the Rams were able to qualify for the NCAA Tournament this season was their overall scrappiness. Six players averaged seven or more points for the CSU offense, and the defense, which limited opponents to 68 points per game, was led by relentless effort and attention to detail. “I feel very fortunate about the position we’re in,” he said. “But we’re not satisfied with just getting there. We want to get there and play well.”

Seeds set for Madness The Associated Press

Kentucky, Syracuse and North Carolina tried to manufacture some chaos before the brackets came out. Like a group of 7-foot forwards roaming the middle, the members of the NCAA selection committee simply swatted all that noise away. Even though they lost over the weekend, the Wildcats, Orange and Tar Heels turned out to be what they thought they were: top seeds — all armed with a well-timed bit of humble pie as they gear up for a run through the NCAA tournament they hope will end at the Final Four in New Orleans. “It’s done now,” Kentucky coach John Calipari said of the 24-game winning streak that ended Sunday with a surprising loss to Vanderbilt in the SEC tournament final. “Now let’s just go onto these three weekends. We’ve got a weekend in front of us. It’s going to be a bear. Know what? Good. Throw anything you want to at us.” Michigan State earned the last No. 1 seed and was the only one of the four top-billed teams to win its conference tournament. The Spartans defeated Ohio State 68-64 in the Big Ten title game Sunday — a contest widely viewed as the game for the last No. 1 seed, even if selection committee chairman Jeff Hathaway wouldn’t quite go there. “As it turned out, this game put the No. 1 seed into the field,” he said. While No. 2 seeds Kansas, Duke, Missouri and Ohio State wonder whether they could have been rated higher, teams such as Drexel, Seton Hall, Mississippi State and Pac-12 regular-season champion Washington curse what

Those bubble teams were left out, and all will be wondering how Iona, California and South Florida made it. The Big East led all conferences with nine teams, including defending national champion Connecticut, a dangerous No. 9 seed, conference tournament winner Louisville and, of course, Syracuse, which cruised through most of the season with only one loss. There were 11 at-large teams from the so-called mid-major conferences, four more than last year and the most since 2004 when 12 made it. Though the committee claims not to consider a team’s conference when it picks the bracket, this was nonetheless a nod to the free-forall this tournament can be. Last year, 4,000-student Butler finished as national runner-up for the second straight season, while VCU, of the Colonial Athletic Conference, went from one of the last teams in the newly expanded, 68-team draw, all the way to the Final Four. Who might this year’s VCU be? It’s the question being asked across the country, as those $10 and $20-apop brackets start getting

inked in at spring training sites, corporate board rooms and everywhere else across America. The tournament starts Tuesday with first-round games and gets into full swing Thursday and Friday, with 64 teams in action. “There were 112 teams with more than 20 wins,” Hathaway said. “We talked a lot about parity at the high end of the field and about quality throughout the field. Bottom line, it was about who did you play, where’d you play them and how did you do?” Some results, though, were less important than others, and apparently, losing in the conference tournament didn’t cost Syracuse, Kentucky or North Carolina. Those losses could have created chaos in the bracket, but the committee had the teams more or less cemented into top spots. Kentucky, the No. 1 overall seed, was placed in the South region and potentially could play six games without having to leave the Southeast. Kentucky will open in Louisville against the winner of a first-round game between Mississippi Valley State and Western Kentucky, but it gets

tougher from there. A possible second-round opponent is UConn, with No. 4 Indiana possibly waiting beyond that. Before Sunday, the Hoosiers — who return to the tournament after a four-year drought — were the only team to beat Kentucky this season. Second-seeded Duke got serious consideration for moving up to a No. 1, but an 18-point loss to North Carolina in the regular-season finale and a loss to Florida State in the ACC tournament certainly hurt. The Blue Devils are on the same side of the bracket with 11th-seeded Colorado, a team that got snubbed last year but won its way into the bracket this time by taking the Pac-12 tournament The Pac-12 was woefully weak this year, placing only two teams and leaving Washington on the outside. This marked the first time the regular-season champion of a power conference got left out. In the West, Michigan State will begin its quest for its seventh Final Four since 1999 against No. 16 LIU. The bottom of the West draw features No. 2 Missouri, which won the Big 12 tournament but got penalized for a weak nonconference schedule. “That hasn’t changed at all over the years,” Hathaway said, when asked whether the committee rewards programs that beef up their schedules. In the East region, Syracuse opens against UNC Asheville with a possible third-round matchup against Jared Sullinger and Ohio State. Other games include No. 3 Florida State, which went 4-1 against Duke and North Carolina this year, against No. 14 St. Bonaventure, which was a surprise winner of the A-10 conference tournament and took a bubble spot away.

quivery effect 56 Demand

Dear Annie: My son married a woman with a 3-year-old daughter, “Suzy.” Suzy’s biological father, “Duke,” has shared custody. When I met Duke’s parents and extended family, we became quite friendly. Over time, I’ve learned a great deal about Duke’s childhood and how he sexually abused his younger brother and sister for several years. When Duke molested a neighborhood child, his church intervened and sent him to a facility for two years until he turned 18. Duke’s parents truly believe their son is no threat to Suzy, and that his “childish sexual abuse” is a thing of the past. Suzy is now 9 and shows no signs of having been abused, and my son and his wife are very attuned to her behavior. Duke still lives with his parents, and I believe their constant involve-

Annie’s Mailbox

Marcy Sugar and Kathy Mitchell

ment probably has prevented any abuse. Duke recently became involved with a widow who has five young children. He now spends all of his time at her home. Should I tell his new girlfriend about his past? My family says that would only create problems and it’s best to keep mum. What do you think? — W.C. Dear W.C.: Keeping quiet about abuse is never a good idea. Duke may not have abused any children in the intervening years, but it

‘Bachelor’ appeal wilts For those who haven’t been paying attention: “The Bachelor” (7 p.m., ABC) ends its 10th year and 16th season tonight. While I’ve assiduously avoided such matters, I’m dimly aware that some guy who was jilted in a previous incarnation of the show has returned on a new “journey,” and some woman named Courtney has behaved atrociously. That’s as much time and effort as I want to devote to this endeavor. I am struck by the fact that audiences turn out year after year to watch something so contrived — a show that sets out to find true love, yet has never resulted in a single walk down the aisle. I believe “The Bachelorette” has one wedding ring to its credit. If eHarmony had such a lousy track record, it would be bankrupt by now. Perhaps the most interesting thing about “The Bachelor” this season is how many people have stopped watching it and started following “The Voice” (7 p.m., NBC) instead. Last Monday, NBC’s musical competition had more than twice as many total viewers as “The Bachelor” and nearly three times as many viewers aged 18 to 49. ABC may be finally running out of roses. The recap show “The Bachelor: After the Final Rose” (9 p.m., ABC) pre-empts “Castle” tonight. — Jokes about the prospect of “smell-o-vision” have been around at least since the invention of television. And every so often we’re reminded why it’s a good thing that they’ve never perfected this technology. Like tonight, when “Hoarders” (8 p.m., A&E) visits folks named Constance and Jeri Jo. One of them likes to keep chickens and rotten eggs in the house — long past their expiration date. ‘‘Hoarders” may fascinate some, but the show exploits mentally ill people for entertainment. Many of those who appear on “Hoarders” do so at the encouragement of family members. Again, we’re told that it’s an intervention — not to be confused with an “Intervention” (9 p.m., A&E). But does anybody really think that putting mentally disturbed people on TV is a compassionate approach to their problems?

Tonight’s other highlights

A pillar of the community harbors dark secrets on “House” (7 p.m., Fox).

An innocent man returns on “Alcatraz” (8 p.m., Fox).

Ivy’s voice quavers at all the wrong moments on “Smash” (9 p.m., NBC).

BIRTHDAYS Playwright Edward Albee is 84. Former Atlanta Mayor Andrew Young is 80. Actress Barbara Feldon is 79. Singer Al Jarreau is 72. Actress-singer Liza Minnelli is 66. Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney is 65. Singer-songwriter James Taylor is 64. Author Carl Hiaasen is 59. Singer Marlon Jackson (The Jackson Five) is 55. Actor Courtney B. Vance is 52. Actor Titus Welliver is 51. Former MLB All-Star Darryl Strawberry is 50. Actress Julia Campbell is 49.

is unlikely that he is “cured.” And the temptation of being around young children without his parents’ supervision could undo his resolve. Please explain to your daughter-in-law and her parents how horrific it would be not only for his girlfriend’s children but also for Duke should he backslide. He should not be around young children without others keeping an eye on the situation. Dear Annie: How can I get my husband to stop cursing? We have been married for a year. When we were dating, I never heard him curse once. ‘‘Jim” says he loves me more than anything and that I have made his whole life better. Even though he knows how much I hate the bad language, he never apologizes when he curses and makes no effort to control his mouth. He swears whenever he gets

angry, and he gets angry at the smallest things. He has adult ADD and takes medication. I know his impatience and anger are symptoms of ADD. I could deal with that if he would only stop cursing. It is disrespectful when he uses that language in front of me. At the very least, he could try to work on this behavior. What can I do? — There’s a Lady Present Dear Lady: It’s difficult to get someone to break a nasty habit if he refuses to work on it. You could try behavior modification, gently calling attention to his cursing every time he does it, asking him to find another word and even kissing him each time he uses a more acceptable expression. You could ask him to deposit a dollar in a “swear jar” each time he is inappropriate. But these methods are most effective when he cooperates.

ize just that, it is misunderstood or misrepresented. Tap into your inner strength. Tonight: Where people are. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  You feel as if you must jump through hoops to achieve your immediate goals. Tune into your sensitivity when dealing with others. Tonight: A must appearance. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)  Detach from a confusing situation without blaming anyone. With some distance and a lot of discussion, you will understand more. Tonight: Let your mind wander.

Project puts jewelry on display Remnant T

o keep some of my prettiest necklaces from getting dusty, I keep them in a tray in a drawer. It seemed like such a waste of their beauty to keep them hidden away, so I created a shadow box jewelry holder that can show them off while still keeping them dust-free. I found a pack of three shadow boxes at Michael’s. With a layer of batting, fabric and a couple of pins, I was able to make a set to display some of my favorite pieces.


SUPPLIES cotton fabric, pressed low loft roll batting (not the kind for stuffing pillows) scissors shadow box spray adhesive or glue tape or hot glue pins INSTRUCTIONS 1. Open the shadow box. Cut a piece of fabric the size of the back piece plus 1/2inch overhang on each side. Then cut one layer of batting to fit on the inside of the back piece, about 1/2 inch smaller on each side.

2. Glue the batting to the inside of the back piece using spray adhesive or regular glue. If using spray adhesive, you’ll probably want to put down some kind of drop cloth. I used a cut-open plastic bag. Make sure to center the batting. 3. Glue the fabric to the batting — spray adhesive works especially well for this because it doesn’t seep through the fabric. Center the fabric so there is overhang on each side and pull it taut. 4. Clip the corners to reduce bulk, then tape or glue the fabric overhang to the

Jewelry display case back of the back piece. Don’t cover up the hanger — trim the fabric if needed. 5. Stick two pins into fabric and batting near the top and hang a necklace from them. You could also display bracelets, rings, earrings or brooches. Once your display is finished, put the back on the frame, hang and admire. — Go! editor Katie Bean can be reached at 832-6361.

Love of reading starts early and can be encouraged BY FAMILY FEATURES


or parents with young children, it’s often hard to know when to start reading to your child, or teaching them colors and numbers. But the act of reading to even very young children can soothe them and lead them to love story time and enjoy reading for themselves as they grow. According to the National Center for Educational Statistics, reading to children in the home sets kids up for success in school and in life. Providing a wide range of reading materials they love, reading with your child and speaking with them about stories they’re enjoying all build excitement around reading. Here are some ways to get your young child to love reading:

Snuggle up. Kids love the attention and snuggle fac-

tor while reading a good book. The feeling of connection helps them calm down before nap or bedtime and creates a sense of security that will help them build healthy relationships with others later in life.

Choose wisely. Bright colors and big pictures can be alluring for toddlers and children beginning to comprehend letters and numbers, so look for books with plenty of illustrations or photos.

Use voices. If you take on character voices while reading, you’re more likely to get a few giggles and further engage your child. Encourage them to repeat what you have said and participate in the story telling.

Remember to play. For children who have an especially difficult time sitting still during reading time, begin to incorporate storylines into playtime. This will likely result in the child’s excitement to learn more of the plot during the next story time and will lead to a fondness for classic story characters.

Get creative. You can also follow your child’s creative play and help them write their own stories, using your child as the protagonist. Turn everyday activities into adventures and incorporate friends and family into the plotline. Allow them to draw illustrations to include in the book.

Engage your child. Go beyond just the copy on the page. Ask your child to find certain animals, plants, etc. Also ask them to identify colors, or to count the number of people on each page. Building these skills early will help your child think critically later.

Embrace technology. Another way to engage your child during story time is to look to new tech-savvy reading trends. Electronic readers have interactive stories that help kids love learning to read. Color touch screens with animated stories and spelling games bring books to life and let kids engage with reading in a whole new way.

Not the average 9-to-5





ost of us draw when we’re children. But most of us quit while we’re still young. Not so for Carrie Smith, 35, known at BDC Tattoos as Scary Carrie. Smith is a professional tattoo artist, and she has been drawing since she could grip a pencil. One of her first pieces of artwork hangs from the wall in her private room at BDC Tattoos, 938 Mass. The features are slightly distorted, but you can tell what it is: ET, scrawled by 5-yearold hands and colored in with markers. Smith had just seen the movie in the theater, and she wanted her mom, who wasn’t able to come, to know what ET looked like. This desire to capture and recreate an image of significant and permeaning in order — Carrie Smith sonal to share it with someone else would become a defining theme in Smith’s life. Smith grew up in Coffeyville, a town she says had little to offer in terms of entertainment. So Smith kept her hands busy with colored pencils and markers, sketching in class and drawing at home since she can remember. When she was 13, she started driving her dad to Tulsa for a string of regular doctors appointments. Before they’d head home, her dad would want to stop at a Harley-Davidson shop (he drove a Harley), and Smith would never argue: while her dad talked and looked around, Smith filled her arms with tattoo magazines. “I read them from cover to cover, so I could soak up everything I possibly could from them,” she says. “There was no Internet back then, so that’s how you learned.” By age 15, Smith was begging a local tattoo artist to apprentice her. The man operated a shop out of his home, and in truth, he was not a very good artist, Smith says. But she was young and enamored by the idea of being able to draw for a living.

“There’s no room for error. It’s serious. They’re going to see this for the rest of their life, and it better be good.”

“SCARY” CARRIE SMITH, a tattoo artist in Lawrence, works on a client March 1 at BDC Tattoos, 938 Mass. The tattoo is a seascape design that will take weeks to finish. And it wasn’t just that. Being a tattoo artist meant that she would be able to craft her own images for permanent placement on something everyone looked at: the human body. And so every day for years, she tramped over to her friend’s house and begged him to apprentice her. As a display of her sincerity, Smith let the man give her a large tattoo of a picture she had drawn in high school. He didn’t improve upon the picture, or even, Smith says, draw it as well as the original.


But her friend viewed it as a mark of devotion. If she was willing to get a tattoo that large she must be serious about the craft. He made a call. A few weeks later, she was on her way to the Florida Keys for an apprenticeship. The apprenticeship was not the sort that would be allowed today. There were no regulations at the time, no mandated standards or oversight. She studied under a crusty, mean old biker who spat and snapped and snarled, the vein in his sweaty forehead bulging whenever he was in a rage. If someone puked, she would grab a sponge. If something needed cleaned or fetched or lifted, she was the one to do it. “It’s rough, but that’s the nature of the business,” she says. “It’s how it’s supposed to be. If I had an apprentice, I would treat them like crap.” After apprenticing for only a month, Smith went to a shop in Kansas City where she worked for three years. Because her apprenticeship was so short, she tried to tackle smaller work until she developed more confidence. A tattoo artist is not granted the same margin of error that other professions might receive. A sick day or bad day for a tattoo artist might mean a marred or a disfigured body part for someone else. “There’s no room for error. It’s serious,” she says. “They’re going to see this for the rest of their life, and it better be good.” Smith has spent her 16-year career at a string of different shops, several of them in Kansas City. Smith has been at BDC Tattoos for about six years. The shop lets her make her own schedule and set up her own appointments. If she wants a vacation day, she walks over to the calendar hanging from her wall and makes a squiggly line through the day she needs off. No waiting for approval. At BDC, Smith works on one client a day, four days a week. On Saturdays, she does walk-ins from noon to 8 p.m. “Usually when I unlock the door, my entire day piles in at once,” she says. “That day could be two big tattoos or 15 tiny ones. You never know what that day will hold.” BDC gives Smith her own private room, and enough freedom to keep her happy — for the moment. “It could all change tomorrow,” she says. “As of right now, I’m happy. The second I become unhappy I’ll leave.”

Make it with mustard Delicious/ NUTRITIOUS


Condiment need not be relegated to sandwiches


his month, we’re mad for mustard.


It’s here, friends! It’s here! March! Some people wait all year for the holiday season or their birthdays or New Year’s Eve, but me? I wait for March. March — the month of spring, St. Patrick’s Day, basketball madness and mustard month at Free State Brewing Co. A trifecta of fun and festiveness! On the third day of March (and disappointed I didn’t make it on the first), I ran to Free State Brewing Co., 636 Mass., for my first round of mustard tasting of the month. You know about this, right? Every March, Free State brings hundreds of mustards to their display case and to the tables of their patrons for sampling. At the end of the month, two lucky Lawrencians go home with the mustard. All of those glorious bottles of fabulous flavors of mustard. I sampled sweet mustards, hot mustards, a bloody mary mustard and a mustard that — I kid you not — tasted like a chili dog. It was a chili dog! In a mustard bottle! Be still my mustard-loving heart. So, in honor of mustard month and all the upcoming basketball viewing (and the color green), I decided to make a buffalo wing alternative — one made specially for the beautiful month of March. And lo, the wasabi mustard wing was born. I have long been a fan of wasabi mustard. I mean, wasabi and mustard, my two favorite condiments, together in one delicious sauce. Yes, please. Frankly, I probably could have just painted the wings in wasabi mustard and thrown them on the grill to good results, but I wanted some more flavor, something more special for my most magical month of the year.

John Young/Journal-World Photos

DELICIOUS: Megan’s wasabi mustard drumsticks with dipping sauce have more substance than chicken wings but still pack a lot of flavor. Because I’m eeking over the “nutritious” camp more and more every day, I looked for a way to make my wings a little less fattening but still full of flavor. So I eliminated the fryer and opted for the oven, though the grill would also be a great choice. I skipped butter and mayo and instead used my new go-to sauce base: Greek yogurt. And it was amazing. I used full drumsticks instead of the typical small wings because I wanted to be able to remove the skin and still have something left to eat. The beauty of actual wings is that there is a lot of skin surface area — excellent for frying. But it’s not so excellent if you are trying to shed a pound or two, so the drumstick makes a great alternative. It’s affordable, healthy and a great palette for all manner of flavors.

Cover and marinate for a couple of hours. Bake at 325 degrees for 30 minutes, then turn the heat up (or the broiler on) and cook another 5 minutes to brown the tops. For the dipping sauce, use the reserved liquid and add another tablespoon of soy sauce and a tablespoon or two of water to thin it. Serve!


When I was a little girl, one of my favorite “sandwiches” was this: yellow mustard and iceberg lettuce on wheat bread. Yes, seriously. The fact my parents let me get away with that is absolutely amazing — there’s like no nutritional value at all. But you know what there is? LOTS of taste. All thanks to the mustard. The bread and the lettuce? Vehicles for said mustard. Back then I wouldn’t touch any mustard but yellow with a 10-foot pole. These days, my taste buds are a bit more sophisticated, and I’ve come to greatly appreciate the nose-tingling mustards of Europe. I’ll seriously try pretty much any mustard, from dark

12 chicken legs, skin removed (or not, depending on your preference) 2 cups nonfat Greek yogurt 3/4 cups prepared wasabi mustard 1/2 cups soy sauce 1 teaspoon sesame oil 1 tablespoon powdered ginger (if you use fresh, use less) Stir this together and pour 3/4 of it over the chicken in a glass baking dish.

We had this with some oven-baked homestyle french fries and some roasted vegetables. It’s bar food, only better. Happy March, everyone. Play hard, play safe, play to win. Go Jayhawks!

Cupcake ATM dangerous for dieters BEVERLY HILLS, CALIF. (AP) — Sprinkles, the Beverly Hills bakery that helped inspire the craze for sweet frosting in snack-size portions, will launch a cupcake-dispensing machine at its flagship store. Founder and owner Candace Nelson said her company is rolling out the first high-tech vending machine on Tuesday, with three more in the works for New York City by the summer. The ATM-like machine features a touchscreen and a robotic arm that pulls the right flavored cupcake from a wall of single-serving boxes inside the store. Nelson said the custom-built gadget is in response to demand for increased hours at the popular store. “After dinner people want a cupcake. But we can’t be open all night long because of our poor employees. So we’ll just stock it fresh before they leave for the evening, and it’ll be good to go,” she said. The machines will be restocked constantly throughout the day so the goods stay fresh. Customers think the vending machines are a sweet idea.

NUTRITIOUS: Sarah’s simply Dijon-licious vinaigrette adds pizazz to a salad of baby spring greens, red onions, dried cranberries, roasted beets and chickpeas. and beer-laden, to peppery near-orange to creamy and tinged with horseradish. Even the bizzarro neo-mustards of modern foodie-ism call my name: the chipotle mustards, wasabi mustards and ginger mustards. Yeah, pretty much any mustard any time is MINE. But, as far as everyday cooking is concerned, there’s one mustard I can’t do without: good ol’ Dijon. It’s perfect when spread on a crusty baguette and topped with slices of creamy avocado or whisked into a sauce or dressing. Honestly, it’s probably the most versatile condiment I buy regularly. And buy it I do — we probably go through a big jar of it once a month. I think the only storebought condiment we go through faster is peanut butter (and for that, I blame my toddler’s love of spooning it on apple slices). Suffice it to say I had a hard time picking a single way to enjoy mustard when Megan and I discussed capitalizing on March’s mustard madness.

So I went basic. Dijon adds a great kick to homemade salad dressing. Mix it with oil and vinegar and watch it make your salad extra special. I like to enjoy this simple dressing over mixed baby spring greens, topped with roasted balsamic beets — for a how-to, check out my favorite way to do beets and other roasted veggies on my Lawrence. com blog here — — plus crunchy slices of red onion, chickpeas and sweet dried cranberries.   SIMPLY DIJON-LICIOUS VINAIGRETTE   2 tablespoons red wine or balsamic vinegar 1 tablespoon lemon juice 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard 1/4 cup olive oil 1/2 teaspoon salt Pepper, to taste Whisk the ingredients well and serve.

A NEW 24-HOUR CUPCAKE “ATM,” an automatic machine that will be continuously restocked to dispense fresh cupcakes, is tested March 5 at Sprinkles Cupcakes in Beverly Hills, Calif. The ATM-like machine features a touchscreen and a robotic arm that pulls the right cupcake from a wall of single-serving boxes inside the store. “You can never have too much access to your cupcakes,” said Patrick Swope of Rogers, Ark., who was visiting the Sprinkles New York City shop with his family. Nelson, who is a featured judge on the Food Network’s “Cupcake Wars,” started this bakery with her husband 10 years ago.

Teen worries mom is bipolar Dear Dr. Wes and Miranda: Basically, I think my mom might be bipolar. She goes through these mood swings, VERY happy to VERY angry in a matter of minutes. For example, me and my brother are supposed to do the dishes. Usually, we do them before Mom gets home so she won’t have to do anything after a long day at work. Sometimes, though, we forget. Those days she walks in the door all happy with us, then sees the dishes and you’d think it was the end of the world. Originally, I attributed this to a recent divorce, but now it’s gotten a little worse, as she goes from being happy to very upset at the drop of a dime. I love my mom. She has been there for me through everything. I just want to know if she needs help or not, and there’s no way to ease into, “Hey, Mom, I think you might be bipolar and you might need help.”

Double TAKE DR. WES CRENSHAW AND MIRANDA DAVIS always be there for your mom may ease this. That being said, you know your mom better than I do. If you honestly think she extends past this “line” of stress and into a disorder, then it’s time to seek the help of a professional. Sit down and talk with her one-on-one, but try not to mention the whole “bipolar” thing. Suggest that the three of you start attending family therapy of some sort. This has no doubt been building under the surface for a while, so expect a negative reaction at first. Stay calm, and help your mom though whatever she is going though. Being supportive, loving and honest is what your mom needs right now.

Miranda: The other day my mom became very emotional when we started talking about graduation. This is normal in the sense that moms often have a difficult time letting go of their children. Realize that this is a touchy time for her, and you have to accept and acknowledge that you will have to tread lightly for a while. Another really hard thing for a parent to go through is divorce. And when that parent is the one the kids primarily live with, that just adds more pressure. I’m no professional, but if I had to guess, it seems like stress, not bipolar disorder, is the underlying issue. I know your mother’s behavior is frustrating, but try to keep some perspective, as she has a lot resting on her shoulders right now. There’s also a strong parallel between being left in a marriage and being left by your children, as they’re moving out or at least getting close. Dealing with an onslaught of rejection can really hurt a person. Just a simple reminder that you and your brother will

Dr. Wes: Hard to improve on that advice. Miranda is correct. Many of your mom’s symptoms sound like stress, and I’m sure she has a lot to be concerned about these days. While some folks are able to manage low-grade symptoms earlier in life, it’s likely that if she were actually bipolar, that would have shown up prominently in her life before now. I don’t know how old

your mom is, but she might also be having early symptoms of menopause, which might combine with the issues Miranda raises to change her mood stability. But the real question before us is how do you intervene with your mom in a way that encourages her to hear what you’re saying and get this looked into, without becoming defensive. One thing I’ve learned is that no matter how much you show your concern and try to take care of other’s needs, if they can’t hear things in the way you intended, you’ll be misunderstood and probably vilified. That’s not where you want to end up with your mom right now. Its hard to know how she’ll take the therapy suggestion, but you could tell her you’d like to go either as an individual to work on your own concerns, or if you think she’ll buy in, with her to work on your relationship. Most parents genuinely want to have a good relationship with their kids, and by asking to make some improvements together, you’re making an offer she’ll have a hard time refusing. Tell the therapist that you’re concerned about her moods, not because you want to get something out of the deal but because you genuinely love and care for your mom. Be sure she knows how much you want to support her after all she’s done to support you. Hopefully, if she sees you taking a selfless interest, she’ll be more able to listen, and the therapist can help figure out what’s difficult for her right now. It’s always nice to get a letter from a caring daughter. — Dr. Wes Crenshaw is board certified in family and couples psychology (ABPP) and author of the books “Dear Dr. Wes: Real Life Advice for Teens” and “Real Life Advice for Parents of Teens.” Miranda Davis is a Free State High School senior.

Mushrooms grown as packing material






N.Y. — Turns out that mushrooms — great in soups and salads — also make decent packaging material. Mushrooms are a key ingredient in the pale, soft blocks produced by the thousands in an upstate New York plant that are used to cushion products ranging from Dell Inc. servers to furniture for Crate and Barrel. More precisely, the packaging blocks are made with mycelium — the hidden “roots” of the mushroom that usually thread beneath dirt or wood. Two former mechanical engineering and design students, Eben Bayer and Gavin McIntyre, figured out how to grow those cottony filaments in a way that binds together seed husks or other agricultural byproducts into preset packaging shapes. Their 5-year-old company, Ecovative Design, has a toe-hold in the increasingly lucrative market for eco-friendly alternatives to plastic foams — and their business is growing like shiitakes on a damp log. Bayer and McIntyre are already expanding their line for everything from footwear to car bumpers. “We want to be the Dow or DuPont of this century,” Bayer said. If the aspiration sounds grandiose, consider that six years ago Bayer and McIntyre were Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute students growing fungus under their beds for a class project. Today, the young entrepreneurs are more than doubling their production space and recently announced a deal with Sealed Air Corp., the packaging giant known for Bubble Wrap. Not bad for a product that grows itself. Workers at Ecovative inoculate mycelium into pasteurized bits of seed husks or plant stalks, then place the mix into clear plastic molds shaped like the desired packaging pieces, such as a cradle-shaped mold for a wine bottle. The mix is covered for about five days as millions of mycelium strands grow around and through the feedstock, acting as a kind of glue. The piece is heat dried to kill the fungus, insuring that mushrooms can’t sprout from it. Since the mycelium is cloned, the product does not include spores, which can trigger allergies. The packaging is edible, technically, though it does not appear appetizing and is not recommended as a snack. “It’s low-tech biotech,” Bayer said.

GAVIN MCINTYRE, LEFT, AND EBEN BAYER, cofounders of Ecovative Design, pose with some of their ecofriendly packaging materials made with mushrooms at their company in Green Island, N.Y. Bayer noticed mycelium’s “stretchy” properties as a kid growing up on a Vermont farm. As students, he and McIntyre started with mushroom-based insulation, but the pair switched to packaging material because it seemed a better business bet. They experimented with common varieties like the oyster mushrooms before hitting on just the right (secret) mix. The company moved several years ago to a 10,000-square-foot facility in Green Island that still has the feel of a startup: an old industrial asparagus blancher pasteurizes the feedstock, and the mycelium is applied with a machine that once put chocolate chips on cookies. McIntyre’s pet chinchilla, Audrey, rolls around the offices in a plastic pet ball. Bayer said Ecovative, with 42 employees, has attracted more than $10 million in grants and equity investment, as well as some big-name clients. Dell director of procurement Oliver Campbell said his company has a pilot program using the Ecovative product instead of polyethylene foam for shipping a high-end server. “To cushion $25,000 worth of servers with mushrooms, that’s kind of a radical thought,” Campbell said. But Campbell said the technology fits Dell’s green initiative. It probably helped that Campbell was a mushroom guy who grew shiitake mushrooms for sale with his wife.

SPRING BREAK DAYCATIONS You don’t have to go far for a trip that will entertain the kids BY NANCY PISTORIUS


t’s that time of year again: spring break. Your kids have been infected with the dreaded “there’s-nothing-to-do-itis” instead of spring fever. As you listen to them whining the “nothing to do” chorus while simultaneously fighting over a Nintendo Wii game, you realize suddenly that you’ve all got to get out of the house or you’ll go mad. Fear not. Although these leaner economic times may mean you won’t be jetting off to a Magic Kingdom where it’s almost mandatory to wear mouse ears, you can find plenty of magical spring break experiences right in your own backyard. TALK TO THE ANIMALS Nature-loving kids and their parents are in luck, as there’s a terrific place in this area to get “up close and personal” with flora and fauna. The 2,002-acre Kansas City Zoo (open daily 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.) is located inside valleys and rolling hills in Kansas City, Mo.’s Swope Park, and contains more than 1,000 animals. You can hop with kangaroos in the Australia section, marvel at tigers in the Asia section, and ride high above the African Plains on the African Sky Safari (weather permitting), crossing approximately 1,500 feet at 35 feet above the ground. (Your toes will dangle just above cheetahs, lions, giraffes and rhinos.) The action is nonstop in the Tropics, an indoor rainforest, where otters swim underfoot in the lush tropical setting. Twin Golden Lion Tamarins, born Jan. 18, are now on exhibit there. Aww … cuteness overload. Special kid zone areas of the zoo include the Discovery Barn and Peek-a-Boo Tree, where kids can climb and play like monkeys. STOP AND SMELL THE ROSES Powell Gardens’ slogan is “Road Trip for your Soul,” and after just a few minutes in this peaceful and serene

Your own children’s favorites might be the Auto Center where they can change oil and rotate tires, the Art Pavilion where they can paint on the walls (and not get scolded for it) and the Real Tool Workshop, where children and adults work together using real saws, hammers, vices and building materials. Who knows, maybe you’ll create a unique family heirloom! With the opening of the International Dream Rocket project, March daily programming includes activities centered around space, rockets and dreams. The Center’s 15,708-square-foot building is nestled within four wooded areas of Gage Park, off 10th Street. While in the area, you and your kids can also enjoy the Topeka Zoo, the mini-train and the old-fashioned carousel.

The Kansas Children’s Discovery Center in Topeka is now enrolling students for the “Space Academy: Master the Force” spring break camp, March 19-23. Cadets will investigate space travel, create cities of the future, design light sabers and master the ways of a Jedi Knight. Each day of the camp offers new hands-on challenges that prepare kids for a final space mission and showdown with Imperial Forces. To register, email camps@kansas But you don’t have to be a camper to enjoy the Discovery Center. Open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday during area schools’ spring break and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, the center’s exhibit floor creates a unique experience for the whole family. Kids can explore nine different interactive areas emphasizing science, art, building/engineering, careers and the “real world.”

Young Jayhawk fans who just can’t get enough hoops during March Madness will think they’re in heaven when they first lay eyes on the College Basketball Experience, located in Kansas City’s Sprint Center, directly across from the Power & Light District. At the CBE, you can easily “get off the bench and get in the game!” The National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame occupies approximately one-third of the CBE (with historical exhibits giving recognition to great coaches, players and teams), but it’s the other two-thirds of the place that captivate most basketball fans, as they work up a sweat touring (and participating) in the high-energy, highly interactive venue. Casual and hardcore fans of any age can totally immerse themselves in the game of basketball. Dedicated hoopsters can take part in three-point shooting, dunking, dribbling and passing drills. Hands-on exhibits throughout the facility place visitors in electrifying game simulations, from sinking the game winning shot (à la “Mario’s Miracle”) to announcing the play-by-play action from the ESPNU broadcast desk. (The ESPN Sports Center is part of the College Basketball Experience.) With exhibits titled “Beat the Clock,” “Call the Highlights,” “Clean the Glass,” “Get in the Zone,” “Make the Pass,” “Shoot from Downtown” and “Step Up to the Line,” the whole place is like a slam dunk for diehard basketball addicts. The CBE is open to the public Wednesday-Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday. — Daytripper columnist Nancy Pistorius can be reached at

The only thing we have to fear … O

n Feb. 7, the political activist and philosopher Angela Davis spoke at Kansas University. Toward the end of her speech she talked about abolishing prisons, and I thought: If we close the prisons, how will we protect ourselves from the bad people? And then I read Adam Gopnik’s “The Caging of America” in the Jan. 30 New Yorker. Did you know that the current incarceration rate is three times that of the 1980s? That more than half of all AfricanAmerican men without a high school diploma can expect to be incarcerated at some point in their lives? That the rate of African-American incarceration is seven times the white rate, even though the rate at which people actually commit crimes is pretty much the same in both populations? Did you know that our prison systems are run more and more by private contractors with financial interest in keeping their prisons full and even fuller, leading them to lobby against any legal reform that

BOOK REVIEW ‘Adventures of Beanboy’ pleases superhero fans BY ZACH YARBROUGH


n “The Adventures of Beanboy” by Tonganoxie author Lisa Harkrader, a seventh-grader named Tucker MacBean enters a comic book contest that has a college scholarship as the prize. Tucker is obsessed with comics and superheroes; so are his brother, Beecher, and best friend, Owen. Tucker and Beecher’s mother works all day and goes to school at night. As a result, Tucker and Beecher never see her. Tucker believes that if she could get a scholarship, she could quit her day job and they would get to see her more. So Tucker decides to enter the contest to create a sidekick for his favorite comic book company. If he wins, his sidekick will also appear in all of the future issues of his favorite comic, H2o. But after Tucker does a reread of the contest rules, he discovers that the prize is nontransferable, meaning that

So to solve this dilemma, Tucker contemplates entering the contest in his mother’s name. Tucker not only wants to help his mom, but also a less fortunate classmate. Through some soul-searching and acts of kindness, Tucker finds he has a “superhero heart.” In this book, you will find a story about a quest to keep a family together and a fight to help the less fortunate. It is easy to follow, and I recommend it to all readers, but especially those that are interested in superheroes. — Zach Yarbrough is a sixth-grader at Lexington Trails Middle School in De Soto.

with no serious repercussions to society, instead of letting these folks do something useful with their lives? Who goes to jail? According to U.S. Department of Justice figures, in 2010, 51 percent of federal prisoners were in for drug offenses and 35 percent for “publicorder” offenses (e.g., weapons and immigration violations). Only 6 percent were jailed for property crimes, and only 8 percent were violent offenders. You don’t have to be a prison abolitionist to realize that there is something very wrong with this picture. Prison isn’t the only effective deterrent to bad behavior. Other countries with far lower rates of incarceration are just as safe and even safer. One of the lowest rates of incarceration in the U.S. is in New York City, yet they have seen an 80 percent decrease in crime in the last 10 years. Instead of keeping the rest of us safe, our current prison system increases the danger to those who come under its aegis, most of whom are not that different from

the folks outside. In a heartbeat it could be you or someone you love, especially if your skin is more brown than pink. How did we get to this point? Our prison system, as so much else that doesn’t work in our lives, is a result of irrational fear. Fear is what puts us and everyone around us in danger. Gripped by fear, we can only lash out wildly, causing tremendous damage. But without fear, we can perceive what’s really dangerous and do something useful about it. Is this possible? In Ohio, an Amish man, Monroe Beachy, is under arrest for a $16 million Ponzi scheme. While deeply condemning his acts, his community is asking to remove his case from the criminal justice system, in their own words, “based on Christian principles of love and care for the poor and needy.” The Amish can do it. Why not the rest of us? — Judith Roitman can be reached at

Recognize when you’re stressed BY FAMILY FEATURES


f you feel irritable, have a hard time concentrating, have low energy or a hard time sleeping, you could be showing signs of stress. In fact, it seems that most Americans are feeling stress these days. The American Psychological Association’s 2010 Stress in America survey disclosed that stress is taking a toll on physical health, as well as the emotional well-being of individuals and families. The majority of Americans live with moderate to high levels of stress but have a hard time making changes to cope with it. The survey also found that:

Two-fifths of surveyed adults reported overeating or eating unhealthy foods because of stress.

Nearly one-third of respondents said they skipped a meal because of stress.

More than four in 10 said they had lain awake at night.

The most common physical symptoms of stress reported were irritability (45 percent), fatigue (41 percent) and lack of energy or motivation (38 percent). If you’re feeling stressed, take heart. There are some things you can do to man-

age your stress. The APA recommends that you:

Understand how you stress. How are your behaviors or thoughts different under stress? Do you have a harder time concentrating or making decisions? Do you lash out in anger? Or do you experience headaches, muscle aches or lack of energy?

Identify sources of stress. What triggers stressful feelings? Are these stress triggers related to family, health, financial decisions, work, or something else?

Find healthy ways to manage stress. Participate in stress-reducing activities like exercising, meditating, yoga or talking things over with friends or family. Reaching out for support from others is another important part of stress management. It’s also important to take care of yourself with regular sleep, healthy eating and plenty of water. The warning signs of stress should not be taken lightly, so listen to what your body is telling you. By recognizing the triggers and understanding how you respond to it, you can healthfully manage and take measures to avoid the long-term problems associated with stress.

pring is in the air. Everywhere I look I see people walking, running and biking. That’s a great sign for those of us who are looking to get outside and change it up a bit. I’ve written about the importance of goal-setting, adding physical activity to your day and trying to “eat clean.” I aspire to those things every day. Sometimes I succeed, and sometimes I don’t. But I do try. And I know so many of you do, as well. That’s a perfect example of why spring lives up to its moniker of being a time of renewal. It feels entirely possible to really change. But now that we are entering The Season of The Sun, exercise takes on a new “dimension of despair” when our slim window of exercise opportunity seems to diminish as we revel in the great outdoors. Soccer games, baseball games and outdoor gatherings begin to claim our “disposable hours.” Where we once had time to get to the gym for a group fit class, we now do not. We need to get creative. We need to get inspired. It’s time for what I like to call Functional Fitness. Let’s step it up with a fresh new perspective, a clean way of eating and some great ideas to carry on our workouts in unexpected ways. Functional Fitness can mean several things, but to me it means simply paying special attention to your everyday routine, paying close attention to the ways that you physically move and then making a conscious effort to integrate your fitness routine into your everyday one. For example, be aware of the way that you move when you transfer your laundry from your washer to your dryer. Instead of bending down to do it, save your back and make that a squat. Continue to hold that position until you are finished. When you are vacuuming, instead of just mindlessly pushing the vacuum around, be very aware of the back and forth motion that your arm makes and throw in a little resistance. Focus on drawing that arm back and retracting your shoulder blade. How much more functional can you

Paying attention to these little things, in addition to your posture, can help to improve your form and bring you a new awareness of your body during your workout. Speaking of working out, now that you will most likely be outdoors more, it’s going to get a lot more exciting. More opportunities to move and longer days mean more opportunities for you to increase your physical activity. We are rapidly approaching “The Season of the Run” in Lawrence, when there are multiple races each weekend, and our community turns out in droves to volunteer and to partici-

pate. Try a 5K or 10K. Grab a friend and do it together, just for the experience. Not a runner? You don’t have to be. You can walk in many of these events. You can do it as a family, too. Step out of your comfort zone, and you may very well find that it is the best thing that you have ever done. The energy at these events is tremendous, and it will fill you with inspiration. Soccer games and baseball practices mean more fun for the kids outside but less time to think about yourself and what you need to fuel your workout. Whether you are going to an interval class or on a hike, remember to plan ahead and have a fuel-up food ready to go. Some things to try are apple slices with peanut butter, Greek yogurt with flaxseed or blueberries, or a banana smoothie with soy milk. You must remember to eat. Even if you are dieting or trying to tone up, try to think about what you need to be adding or changing in your diet instead of what to take away.

Indeed, there’s something romantic about springtime. Grass grows green, daffodils sprout up and the air feels a little less crisp, a little more forgiving.


veryone looks prettier in spring. At the first hint of 60 degree weather, frat boys are wearing flip flops, Kansas University students are riding with the convertible top down and kids are sitting on the tree curbs outside of Sylas and Maddy’s eating ice cream cones. Postures suddenly straighten, eyes lighten, cheeks gather a hint of color and legs swiftly shed their pant-cocoons. Indeed, there’s something romantic about springtime. Grass grows green, daffodils sprout up and the air feels a little less crisp, a little more forgiving. And the best part of all? Women suddenly feel more feminine. Spring is a time for us to embrace our bodies, to dress them in florals, pastels, lace and eye-catching prints. No longer will I feel compelled to wear my favorite winter ensemble of black boots, black jeans and a black sweater. Instead, I’ll put on a flowy skirt and become fascinated with the idea of outdoor entertaining. Ladies, whether you’re a pastel-and-lace type of woman, or you’re like me and prefer wearing a mish-mash of bold prints, spring 2012 has something great in store for your wardrobe.

Because of my fair complexion, I’ve never been so brave to adorn myself in nude or pastel colors. If I don’t find the perfect tint, the muted colors wash out my skin. However, Pamela Brown, a hairstylist at Lou & Co and New York Fashion Week assistant, noted that fair-skinned beauties can wear beige-tinted nudes and pastels to guard against making light skin look even lighter. Darkerskinned women can wear pink or cream-colored bases.

The Pantone Color Institute prophesized Tangerine Tango to be the color for 2012, and they were spot on. During New York Fashion Week, models cascaded down the runways clad in bright oranges. This spring, we’ll be seeing pastels color-blocked with brights and neons. While I’m not much a solid-color wearer, this spring fashion trend could be my jam. PRINTS

LACE Nothing makes a woman feel more feminine than a touch of lace. I’m not too much of a designer label snob, but Alexander McQueen’s spring line features some lace pieces that are simply exquisite (and I never use the word exquisite). After designing the muted satin and lace dress for William and Kate’s royal wedding, how could the folks at Alexander McQueen introduce any fabric other than lace for their spring line?

MIDWEST DRIVING SCHOOL “Drive to Arrive Alive”



There are prints, and then there are PRINTS — big, bold, obnoxious prints that only people starving for attention (me) wear. This is by far my favorite trend of spring, and it’s about time it got here. This hodgepodge, pattern medley fits perfectly with my No. 1 fashion philosophy of “keep putting on more clothes until the outfit looks complete.” — Ali Edwards can be reached at AP File Photos

Driveway becomes science lab Are you READY?

River City Jules


y friend Jean pulled into our driveway, laughing as my son shot orange soda out of its bottle all over the garage door. “Science experiment?” she asked. “Yes,” I replied, looking back to our house at what my life had become. Luke, our 10-year-old, had decided Christmas morning, when Santa left him a Mentos-dropping tube, that he was going to drop Mentos mints into various sodas for the annual science fair. At the time, it seemed like a great idea. Actually, at the time, I figured he would change his mind or lose the dropper before the science fair. Yet as soon as the dreaded science fair info sheets emerged from his backpack, he had us off to the store to buy three different sodas and four tubes of Mentos. My husband and I both have degrees in biology. We entered parenthood clueless about things like how to avoid working the moonwalk at the school carnival or why no slumber party should involve more than four kids, but we were armed for the annual science experiment. Under our expert lab instruction, our kids have molded cheese, evaporated water, cleaned pennies, assessed the listening skills of neighborhood dogs and more. Still, with all of this experience, I only bought one Coke, one Sprite and one Sunkist for Luke’s experiment. He prepared the space by hanging two poster boards to the exterior of our house marked in two-inch increments to measure the mint-soda eruption. He then screwed the dropper onto the bottle of Sprite, set four mints to drop and stood back while I readied the camera to video the experiment. He pulled the pin, the Mentos dropped into the Sprite and the Sprite soon burst out of the bottle, far above the top of

the poster board, invalidating the results, as the soda shot too high to be measured. Out one bottle of Sprite I would have to go to the store to replace, we decided to go ahead and measure the Coke, adding another poster board to the set. Three Mentos later, the Coke was shooting above our garage’s roofline. Variables exploded all over our home, we decided to table the experiment until he had adequate supplies available. For take two, he decided to further reduce the Mentos count to two per bottle. Starting with the Sunkist this time, Luke prepared and loaded the dropper, pulling the pin on cue. He had forgotten to wash the Mentos dropper, though, and the pin stuck and knocked the bottle down, sending foaming, shooting Sunkist all over the driveway, the house, the videographer and the mad scientist himself, before he finally released the dropper from the bottle. Luckily, Luke executed his third trial flawlessly, leaving himself five extra bottles and 25 extra Mentos to shoot into the air for sport. I turned back to Jean and laughed. Marveling at his geysers, Luke proved Coke explodes the highest, but he also reminded me to worry less and enjoy the process more. — Julie Dunlap can be reached at

Give exposed wood a fresh start by removing stains


lack water marks and other dark stains can be removed from wood using oxalic acid. Black stains form when the natural tannic acid in wood comes in contact with moisture and iron. Since most water contains trace amounts of iron, tannin stains are a common problem in exposed wood. Oxalic acid, commonly referred to as wood bleach, will lighten tannin stains without affecting the natural color of the wood. Oxalic acid will also lighten gray weathered wood and is often the active ingredient in deck brighteners. Step 1: Remove any remaining finish on the affected area of wood. Use 100 grit sandpaper to sand the stained spot thoroughly. Step 2: Protect the surrounding areas from spills and splashes with plastic sheeting or other waterproof material. Wear safety glasses, rubber gloves and protective clothing when working with any type of acid, including oxalic acid. Step 3: Dissolve 2-4 ounces of oxalic acid crystals into 32 ounces of hot water. Hot water is key to the success of the proj-

ect. If the solution cools before the job is finished, reheat and proceed. Step 4: Use a scrub brush to apply the acid solution liberally to the darkened area of the wood. Step 5: Allow the bleach solution to remain on the spot until the desired lightness is reached. Add additional solution as necessary to keep the wood soaked and to continue the lightening process. Do not allow the solution to cool. Step 6: Once the dark spot is lightened, triple rinse the bleached area with clean cool water. The clean water will stop the bleaching process. Be sure to rinse the area at least three times to remove all traces of the acid. Step 7: After rinsing, if the tannin spots still remain, repeat the wood bleaching process until the desired lightness has been achieved. Step 8: Allow the wood to dry for several days before attempting to refinish. Once the wood is dry, lightly sand the area and wipe clean with mineral spirits. Stain, seal or paint the exposed wood as desired.

Keep your aging cat feeling young BY FAMILY FEATURES


id you know that cats are considered senior citizens at the age of 11? But getting older doesn’t mean that they have to lose their spark. Wendy Diamond, “Animal Fair” editor-inchief and national television pet lifestyle contributor, has some great tips for making your favorite feline’s twilight years golden ones. KEEP FELINE MINDS ACTIVE

See answer next Monday!


Aging commonly impacts cognitive function. Older cats may become bored or disinterested in activity, so it’s imperative to keep their minds active and engaged in order to stave off the trappings of old age, like senility or depression. Incorporating exploration and problem-solving into your cat’s daily routine will keep your cat’s intellect as sharp as their claws. ADJUST THE NUTRITIONAL PLAN Older cats have delicate digestive systems, and their ability to extract nutrition from their food begins to diminish. Pet parents need to make sure that the food that their aging feline consumes is composed of quality ingredients bursting with nutrition. VISIT YOUR VET
