School board may subtract ESL from closing equation By Christine Metz

For some Lawrence school board members, the future of the district’s English as a Second Language program shouldn’t be tied to talks on consolidating

its smallest elementary schools. On Monday evening, the school board continued discussions on whether to reduce six elementary schools — New York, Cordley, Kennedy, Pinckney, Hillcrest and Sunset Hill — down to three

or four in the next two years. For six months, a working group had been tasked with studying that question and came back with two recommendations. One group recommended that all the schools stay open and the district support a bond issue.

The other group believed that consolidation was a valid option but didn’t name which schools should close. At Monday’s meeting, board members quizzed staff about the future of the ESL program and how the district plans to expand it.

Currently, the district has two cluster sites — Hillcrest and Cordley — where ESL students from other elementary schools are sent. It also has smaller neighborhood sites at Schwegler and Sunflower. Please see SCHOOL, page 2A

Flu activity in state increasing By Karrey Britt

Flu activity has steadily increased during the past several weeks in Kansas and has reached its highest level so far this season. Dr. Robert Moser, state health officer and secretary of the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, said influenza will continue to circulate through the spring, and he encourages Kansans to get their vaccine if they haven’t yet received one. “There is still time for people to get a flu vaccination to protect themselves, their families and the community,” he said. “The seasonal influenza types we’ve seen in Kansas are covered by the current vaccine.” KDHE identified the first laboratory-confirmed influenza cases of this season Dec. 21. Symptoms of influenza include fever, headache, extreme tiredness, dry cough and muscle aches. Complications can include pneumonia, ear and sinus infections and dehydration; influenza may also worsen other chronic conditions. According to KDHE, vaccination is effective for reducing the chances of getting sick and spreading influenza to others. Anyone 6 months and older is advised to get a vaccination. This is especially important for anyone at high risk of complications or who is caring for, or in regular contact with, an infant less than 6 months old. Babies this age are too young to be vaccinated and are more vulnerable to complications from influenza. The flu vaccine is available at the Lawrence-Douglas County Health Department’s clinic, 200 Maine. The cost is $23 for children ages 6 months to 3 years and $28 for anyone older than 3.

Jayhawks already academic champs By Andy Hyland

Take that, Harvard. Kansas University earned top honors in the website Inside Higher Ed’s annual Academic Performance Tournament, which uses teams’ graduation rates and academic performance to determine a winner. KU was joined in the bracket’s Final Four by Texas, Lehigh and Davidson. Each game is judged using teams’ Academic Progress Rate. In case of ties, the teams’ Graduation Success Rates are used. A team’s APR is a score the NCAA uses to track academic eligibility and retention among players. In May, the NCAA recognized KU’s men’s basketball team as one of the teams to earn a perfect 1,000 score.

City taking action against Packard ‘junkyard’ By Chad Lawhorn

Jimenez, the city’s code enforcement manager. “There is really no other way to describe it.” Fans of the late Packard automobiles — big boats of a machine that CITY once were among the most luxurious of Amer- COMMISSION ican autos — might see the site as a rare opportunity. The property, which is just east of the Judicial and Law Enforcement Center, has 15 deteriorating Packard automobiles in its overgrown, partially fenced backyard.

KU was in the annual bracket’s Final Four last year and won the tournament again in 2010. “I think it reflects the effort that our basketball players, our faculty members, our academic counselors and our tutors put into the academic side of college life,” said Jim Marchiony, associate athletic director. “It certainly is nice that we’ve done so well the last three years.” And as for KU’s traditional rivals, Missouri and Kansas State? MU lost in the Sweet 16 to Brigham Young, and KSU dropped in the Round of 32 to UNC Asheville.


The Packard brand of automobiles has been extinct since the mid-1950s, and now Lawrence city commissioners are being asked to put an end to perhaps their largest Lawrence resting grounds as well. City commissioners at their meeting tonight will start the process of declaring the property at 1106 R.I. unsafe and in need of demolition. “The property presents itself pretPlease see FLU, page 2A ty much as a junkyard,” said Brian

“While their APR is probably the last thing on these athletes’ mind at the moment, it shouldn’t be,” the website reported. “That’s because in October, the NCAA Division I Board of Directors passed rules that by the 2015-16 season schools will be required to have at least a score of 930 to participate in any sport’s postseason competition.” The GSR is a stricter standard that measures graduation rates. KU had a GSR score of 91, using six-year graduation rate data calculated from 2003-09. That’s up from last year’s score of 80. KU beat Detroit, Purdue, Belmont, North Carolina, Texas and Davidson on the way to the championship.

wanted to know whether the actual school buildings influenced where ESL programs were housed. Beyond having small rooms for meeting with ESL students individually and plenty of curbsides for buses to drop off students, buildings don’t have to change that much. That had school board President Mark Bradford questioning whether the ESL program should even be part of the discussion of whether to close schools. “To me that ties more into budget hearing issues than it would the facilities question,” Bradford said.

In other news, the school board accepted Bodensteiner’s resignation. Bodensteiner, who oversees all the teaching and learning functions of the school system, has accepted a position as executive director of teaching and learning in Bellevue, Neb., public schools. Bodensteiner has spent 12 years in the district, seven as a principal for Cordley School and five as the chief academic officer.


Board member Shannon Kimball wanted to know at what point schools should stop sending students to cluster sites and form their own ESL programs. “The way you asked it isn’t entirely the way we approached it over time,” Chief Academic Officer Kim Bodensteiner told Kimball. “It has also been: When is a cluster site getting too big in terms of space and balance?” With Hillcrest, the largest ESL site, having 60 percent of its students in the ESL program, district staff said they are looking at ways to expand the program once again. “Our ESL numbers are going to continue to grow, and so the likelihood of having cluster sites in place in the near to moderate future is going to be there,” Superintendent Rick Doll said, noting it was likely that the district would get another neighborhood site.

Man to stand trial in police standoff case By George Diepenbrock

A Douglas County judge on Monday ordered a 22-year-old Lawrence man to stand trial on a charge of attempted aggravated battery against a law enforcement officer related to a Nov. 29 standoff with police. During a preliminary hearing Monday, prosecutors accused Brian Lee Bailey of pointing a gun — with his finger inside the trigger guard — at the front door of a mobile home in the 3200 block of Iowa Street while officers were standing outside. Police were responding to a domestic disturbance that evening. A sergeant who

had gone to the back of the mobile home testified he looked through a window and saw Bailey point the gun in the direction of the door. “That led them to believe the defendant was ready to shoot,” assistant district attorney Catherine Decena Skinner said. Whether officers had identified themselves as police was a point of contention during the hearing. Bailey’s defense attorney said it was dark and Bailey was attempting to defend his property from possible intruders. “There were no threats made to the officers that they were going to be harmed,” defense attorney

Brian Barland, a son of Raymond Barland, didn’t return phone calls for this article. City officials aren’t sure how the cars ended up there either, and at this point they’re more interested in how they’re going to be removed from the site. “The situation at the property right now is a pretty significant issue from a code standpoint,” Jimenez said. Commissioners at their meeting today won’t take any final action to order the vehicles’ removal or to demolish the abandoned house and other structures. Instead, commissioners will set May 15 as a public hearing date to consider the issue.

even though it is in bad need of repair, is still considered a “contributing structure” to the North Rhode Island Residential Historic District. As a result, the city’s Historic Resources Commission will consider the future of the property at its April meeting. But as Jimenez said, historic resources commissioners generally don’t like approving the demolition of a historic property without first seeing a replacement plan. Jimenez said the Barland family hasn’t presented to him any replacement plan or plans to rehabilitate the property. Although the city has the legal authority to declare the structures unsafe and order their demolishing, they don’t have the authority to force the property owners to build new structures on the property. “We might run into a quandary, so to speak,” Jimenez said. “If the current owners don’t have the ability to rehab it, we still won’t want this property to continue to sit there in its current condition. We’ll just have to wait and see how the Historic Resources meeting goes.” — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362. Follow him at

Concealed carry bill heads to Senate TOPEKA — Gun owners who have a Kansas concealed-carry permit would be allowed to bring their weapons into more public buildings under a bill approved Monday by the state House. The House’s 74-50 vote sends the measure to the Senate, where it’s likely to get a cool reception. House members rewrote the bill so that it’s not as strong as its supporters initially wanted, but it still faces opposition from many local governments and higher education officials. The bill prohibits many state and local government agencies from banning concealed guns on their premises unless they have “adequate” security.

ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY ADMINISTRATOR LISA JACKSON speaks at a forum with Chris Brown, a professor in Kansas University’s environmental studies program, Monday at KU’s Spooner Hall.

EPA leader discusses pollution, stresses importance of regulations By Christine Metz

From offshore drilling to the Baker Wetlands, Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa Jackson tackled some of the nation and state’s most controversial environmental issues Monday afternoon. “I’m here today because so much of what I do every day is really about your future, and you have the power to influence the direction we go,” Jackson told the crowd of students and faculty that had gathered at Kansas University’s Spooner Hall. Jackson, the first African-American woman to head the federal environmental regulatory

agency, told the audience that she came to her role of protector of the environment not by the Teddy Roosevelt ideal of preserving pristine open spaces. Instead, she said her concern was in the “brownside” of the environment and ways to curb pollution. “I always tease people I don’t sleep outside, but I do my job to make sure you can,” Jackson said. Jackson acknowledged the criticism the agency has fallen under in recent years from those who believe environmental regulation has “hobbled” the economy. Jackson went on to defend her agency, saying it is consistent with American values to not let industries pollute

water with raw sewage, to keep vehicles from emitting lead toxins, to limit the mercury pollution coming from power plants and to monitor the chemicals used in producing food. “We won’t back down from protecting our kids from mercury pollution, or making sure that our food is safe and our water is clean,” Jackson said. Jackson did address one controversial local issue, the building of the South Lawrence Trafficway through the Baker Wetlands south of Lawrence. The area has been marked as a sacred space for Native Americans. Jackson was asked what role the EPA played in recognizing spiritual places in the siting process.

Tribes are given special roles in the consultation process, she said. “I think when you talk about tribes that for many, many decades now, they have felt as though they don’t have the opportunity to move or be mobile, so their cultural sites are extremely important,” Jackson said. “For those reasons, finding out what those issues are is what the law says we should do.” And, as someone who grew up in New Orleans, Jackson said she recognizes the importance that wetlands play in flood prevention. “When we didn’t have them to break the impact of Hurricane Katrina, we missed them tremendously,” Jackson said.

TOPEKA — It’s called the “No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act,” but House Bill 2598, which will be worked on in committee this week, deals with much more than taxes. The anti-abortion group Kansans for Life says the bill strengthens civil rights for the unborn and increases crucial information given to women who are thinking of getting an abortion. In testimony on the bill, state LEGISLATURE Rep. Lance Kinzer, R-Olathe, described it as a comprehensive measure “dealing with a variety of important issues where expansion, clarification or codification is necessary in our law.” But Kari Ann Rinker, the Kansas coordinator of the National Organization for Women, calls the 68-page measure “the most sweeping antiabortion bill in the nation.” The bill would make dozens of changes in Kansas abortion law.

Legislators urged to reject plan to scrap Earned Income Tax Credit By Scott Rothschild

TOPEKA — Advocates for the poor and a mother of two, who worked her way out of a four-month stay at a homeless shelter, argued Monday in favor of maintaining the Earned Income Tax Credit, which has been targeted for elimination by Gov. Sam Brownback and reduction by House Republican leaders. Tosha Jansen-Conkey, a graduate of Kansas University, said that in 2007 she was divorced, bankrupt and the mother of two boys. “My biggest reward is the love of my two children,” she said, who are now 6 and 5. She worked several jobs to keep her family afloat and lived for four months at the Topeka Rescue Mission. Jansen-Conkey said the EITC has been crucial to her family. “Without this sort of relief, I may not have been able to get on my two feet,” she said. Brownback’s plan to reduce income tax rates and slash business taxes includes eliminating numerous deductions and credits, including the state

TOSHA JANSEN-CONKEY, mother of two, speaks Monday during a news conference against attempts to eliminate the Earned Income Tax Credit. portion of the EITC. The House Republican leadership tax plan would cut the credit by half. The Brownback administration has said there is widespread fraud in the EITC. In January, Brownback’s Budget Director Steve Anderson said: “We have no way of making sure, for example, that a single mother is spending that on needs for her children.” But Sister Therese Bangert, of the Catholic Sisters of Charity, disagreed with Anderson’s assessment. She said low-income families use the EITC to pay off medical and credit card bills, rent, car repairs and other necessary expenses. “The EITC has been

studied and studied and showed positive outcomes for families,” she said. A coalition of groups, called the Partnership to Preserve the Earned Income Tax Credit, said that more than 90 percent of Kansas’ EITC dollars go to families with children, and the average credit is about $360. The coalition said the EITC lifts more children out of poverty than any other single program and was adopted to help working low-income families offset sales and property taxes. Bangert said she was personally offended that talk of tax fraud seems to only come up with the EITC and not the tax dodges used by wealthier people. Jansen-Conkey, who over the past several years has worked jobs mopping floors, selling cars, and is now a legal secretary, said she received $735 from the credit this year. She said the credit has helped her buy a van and make a down payment on a mobile home. Removing the EITC would “be taking away too much from children who have too little,” she said. — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

Legislation on track to get dinner train TOPEKA — The Kansas House on Monday advanced a measure that state Rep. TerriLois Gregory says is needed to bring a dinner train to Gregory run between Baldwin City and Ottawa. “This is a rolling restaurant,” Gregory, R-Baldwin City, said. House Bill 2689 would allow the sale and consumption of alcoholic beverages on a railway car. The Elkhorn Valley Railcar Co. in Nebraska has expressed an interest in operating a dinner train, Gregory said. A final vote on the measure is expected today.

duced the annual battle in the Statehouse between anti-abortion groups and abortion rights supporters. Some fireworks erupted when Rinker, recalling that the Legislature and Gov. Sam Brownback enacted several major antiabortion bills last year, offered the House Federal and State Affairs Committee a rubber stamp with the word “approved,” which angered some committee members. But then the bill faded in the background for several weeks, as the Legislature hurtled toward other issues and deadlines.

KU Med Center concerns That changed last week when officials at Kansas University Medical Center informed legislators there was a provision in the bill that could jeopardize its accreditation. According to KU, accreditation requirements say that medical residents being trained as OB-GYNs must gain experience with induced abortion and complications due to abortion, unless they have a religious or moral objection. The residents gain this experience at facilities not owned or operated by the state. One part of HB 2598 states, “No health care services provided by any state agency, or any employee of a state agency while acting within the scope of such employee’s employment, shall include abortion.” When legislators reported that they were working with KU to solve this issue, the influential anti-abortion group Kansans for Life sounded the alarm. “Time to end University of Kansas abortion training,” said a call to action by Kansans for Life. Kathy Ostrowski, of Kansans for Life, said, “There is no professional reason that OB-GYN resident physicians have to learn how to destroy unborn children in order to achieve competency in pregnancy management, stillbirth evacuation or treating abortion complications.” And she urged people to contact Brownback and legislators “to stop abortion training by KU!” The wrangling over the bill concerning KU Medical Center has increased

scrutiny of other parts of the bill as the abortion issue has gained heightened publicity across the nation. Earlier this month, Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell signed into law a bill requiring that women seeking abortions undergo abdominal ultrasounds. But dropped from an earlier version of the bill, after a national uproar, was a vaginally invasive form of ultrasound.

Details of the bill Under the Kansas legislation, for pregnancies at least 10 weeks from the last menstrual period, the abortion provider must use a hand-held Doppler fetal monitor and “make the embryonic or fetal heartbeat of the unborn child audible for the pregnant woman to hear.” Dr. Herbert Hodes, an obstetrician-gynecologist who provides abortion services, said, “The Legislature should not be in the business of forcing medical tests on women and requiring physicians to violate their ethical obligations.” The measure would also make it a crime for a person to perform an abortion with the knowledge that the pregnant woman was seeking the abortion solely on account of the sex of the child. The bill also requires the physician to inform a woman seeking an abortion about the risks of abortion on premature

birth in future pregnancies and breast cancer. Abortion rights groups point to scientific studies that dispute this assertion. The measure also would have the effect of creating new taxes on expenses related to abortion services or insurance coverage for abortion and imposes state sales taxes on drugs and medications used in an abortion. The bill also excludes the threat of suicide or self-harm from the definition of substantial and irreversible impairment of a major bodily function for the purposes of seeking a post-viability abortion. And it would prevent any group providing abortion services, such as Planned Parenthood, from offering materials for human sexuality classes in school districts. And another part of the bill would eliminate a civil cause of action for wrongful life or wrongful death, according to a state bill summary. Abortion rights supporters say this may allow physicians to conceal from the pregnant woman information about abnormalities in the fetus. The Federal and State Affairs Committee is scheduled to work on the bill either today, Wednesday or Thursday. — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

I plan to have a watch party Sunday for KU’s second NCAA Tournament game and need to know what time that game will be played. I don’t understand why the Journal-World can’t just print the tipoff time for both games in Omaha, instead of just the Friday game. Please tell me what time Sunday’s game is.


The times for the Sunday games will not be determined until Friday night. As soon as the times are determined, they will be posted on and published in the JournalWorld, but don’t expect that to happen before Friday.

FIRE REPORT • A structure fire was reported at Berry Plastics, 2330 Packer Road, about 7:12 p.m. Monday. Firefighters observed smoke emitting from the roof of the structure when they arrived, said Lyle Schwartz, division chief for LawrenceDouglas County Fire Medical. Schwartz said firefighters entered the building and extinguished the fire, which was around an injection mold machine and the roof above it. No one was injured. The cause is still being investigated.

LAW ENFORCEMENT REPORT • Lawrence police responded to a report of a naked man about 4:40 p.m. Monday near the 1700 block of Research Park Drive. Police did not locate a suspect at the scene, but they later interviewed and cited a man for indecent exposure. • A 27-year-old Lawrence man was arrested on charges of aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer after he was accused of driving away from a traffic stop early Saturday and almost striking an officer, said Kim Murphree, a police spokes-

woman. An officer observed the man run a red light about 1 a.m. Saturday at 23rd and Louisiana streets, and the driver did not stop his vehicle until he reached 23rd Street and Haskell Avenue. Murphree said the man drove away and almost hit the officer after the officer was out of his patrol vehicle and had asked the driver to exit his vehicle. The driver later stopped his vehicle and was arrested in the 100 block of Pine Haven Court. The man posted $3,500 bond Saturday and was given notice to appear in court March 23. The

Journal-World generally does not identify suspects unless they are formally charged.

Dental care The importance of good dental care is getting some much-needed attention in Kansas.


ental care isn’t just a cosmetic issue. It is an important health concern that is drawing needed attention across Kansas. In an attempt to draw even more attention to the issue, the Kansas Health Foundation is launching a new campaign called “Truth About Teeth.” The Wichita-based foundation plans to use billboards and other advertising to inform Kansans about the state’s dental health. One billboard will inform people that 58 percent of Kansas third-graders have experienced tooth decay. Other statistics cited by the foundation: OKansas hospitals reported more than 17,500 emergency room visits related to dental problems in 2010. (That included 488 ER visits to Lawrence Memorial Hospital.) OKansas ranks 18th in the United States for total tooth loss among senior citizens. OOnly 25 percent of Kansas dentists accept patients insured through Medicaid. ONinety-three Kansas counties do not have enough dentists to serve their residents and 13 have no dentists at all. That last statistic was questioned by a local dentist responding to a recent article on the Journal-World’s website. He noted that Douglas County is among those listed as underserved, which doesn’t make much sense considering the number of dentists who practice in Lawrence. He also noted that the availability of dentists isn’t as big an issue as the lack of dentists who treat Medicaid patients. The number of dentists who provide that care is so low, he said, because of the state’s low reimbursement rates and the burdensome filing requirements for that reimbursement. He also noted that individuals, especially those who know they can’t afford to visit a dentist regularly, need to take responsibility for their own dental health by brushing, flossing and limiting their sugar intake. Those are all good points. It doesn’t matter if there are more dentists if people can’t afford to visit them. If the state’s current Medicaid rates or paperwork pose a serious impediment to dental care in the state, officials should try to address those issues. The importance of personal responsibility also should be covered in the Kansas Health Foundation’s education campaign. It’s likely that many of the dental-related visits to Kansas emergency rooms could have been avoided by good dental hygiene or a timely visit to a dentist before the problem reached the critical stage. Lawrence is fortunate to have the Douglas County Dental Clinic, which can provide such care to low-income residents. People have the tendency to think of dental health as being related only to the teeth and gums, but serious dental problems also affect a person’s overall health. Congratulations to the Kansas Health Foundation for putting new emphasis on dental health issues. We hope the foundation’s campaign will spawn many new education and health initiatives to improve dental health across Kansas.

Putin’s hatred of U.S. poses challenge MOSCOW— Can Washington have a productive relationship with a Russian leader who thinks Americans are out to destroy him? After a week of listening to official anti-American rhetoric in Moscow, I find it hard to see how. Vladimir Putin, newly elected to a third presidential term (after an interval as prime minister), has made clear he believes Washington has him in its crosshairs. “Nobody can impose their policy on us,” he proclaimed to a cheering crowd at his victory rally near the Kremlin. “Our people could recognize the provocation from those who want to destroy the country. The Orange scenario will never work here.” Putin was referring to the 2004 Orange Revolution in the Ukraine, where street protests overturned a pro-Russian, antidemocratic president. The Russian leader thinks the United States directed the Orange Revolution. He also thinks that Russians protesting rigged elections are paid by the United States.

Putin’s paranoia “Putin really believes that the United States is out to get him and intends to have a regime change in Russia,” says Dmitri Trenin, director of the Carnegie Moscow Center. Indeed, the depth of Putin’s paranoia is more germane to future U.S.-Russian relations than whether he rigged the election (even had his margin not been padded by fraud, he still would have won). Some argue Russian foreign policy won’t change much under Putin 2.0. After all, President Obama’s cooperative relationship with outgoing President Dmitry Medvedev — the “reset” in U.S.-Russian relations — required a green light from Putin. Moreover, U.S. officials

But if antiAmericanism has become Putin’s guiding principle — a very personal, deeply held conviction — then it’s much harder to imagine cooperation.” have received assurances from high-level Russians that, with the election over, U.S.-Russian relations can return to a more even keel. But it’s hard to imagine cooperation on issues such as Iran and Syria with a man who feels such personal animosity toward the United States.

Imagined motives Consider the following: In December, Putin accused Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton of having sent a “signal” that ignited political protests. U.S. Ambassador Michael McFaul was met with a barrage of hostility after he arrived in Moscow in January; he was accused on statecontrolled TV of being sent to foment a revolution. McFaul was a chief architect of Obama’s “reset.” However, he has long been involved with nongovernmental organizations that promote democracy, which makes him suspect to Putin. And he upset the Kremlin when, the day after presenting his credentials, he met with opposition activists, along with visiting Deputy Secretary of State William

Back to KGB roots However, Russian political analysts tell me Putin’s anti-Americanism has much deeper roots than electioneering. No doubt it springs in part from his KGB training and indoctrination. He is still smarting from Russia’s lost superpower status, and from NATO’s expansion into Eastern Europe. And he was angered at the Bush administration’s assertion of global dominance and its Iraq war. So, says the Carnegie Center’s Trenin, Putin fell back on “fantasies of alliance with Europe or China vs. the United States.” To be fair, Russia’s inter-

From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for March 13, 1912: YEARS “At a meeting of AGO the University IN 1912 Council held yesterday afternoon it was decided to institute a system of fifty minute classes at the University. As a signal for the change in classes the University whistle will blow. The fifty minute system is used in all the big colleges. The whistle will blow in the morning at 8:50, 9:50 ... and so on throughout the school day.” — Compiled by Sarah St. John

ests in Syria and Iran do differ from America’s. “Most of those in the Putin entourage think Syrian President Bashar al-Assad can tough it out and he will be extremely grateful to Russia,” says Georgi Mirsky, one of Russia’s leading Middle East experts. Russia sells arms to Damascus and can dock its ships in the Syrian port of Tartus, the only Mediterranean port to which it has access. And Putin is bitter that his support for humanitarian intervention in Libya led to a NATO military intervention — and regime change in Tripoli. As for Iran, says Mirsky, “the Russian foreign ministry believes Iranian leaders are rational, not fanatics, and not determined to produce a bomb.” If Putin were merely using anti-Americanism to rally domestic support, if his attitude toward Washington was pragmatic, one still might imagine some U.S.-Russian cooperation on issues where security interests overlap, even on missile defense and Iran. But if anti-Americanism has become Putin’s guiding principle — a very personal, deeply held conviction — then it’s much harder to imagine cooperation. Challenged at home, Putin will regard Washington’s continued (and justified) support for Russian civil society as a scheme to remove him. In that case, cooperation with Washington would seem a sign of weakness. “If Putin sets the U.S. up as public enemy number one, it could have consequences,” says Trenin. It would mean more tensions in the Middle East and Europe. The reset of the “reset” may depend less on rational factors and much more on what is going through Putin’s mind.

Burns. Yet this is normal U.S. policy. And the unprecedented vitriol directed McFaul’s way indicates the depth of Putin’s suspicions about U.S. intentions. Anti-Americanism was a central feature of the Russian leader’s presidential campaign, playing on the innate suspicions of Russians raised to think the United States was hostile. In the run-up to the election, I heard anti-American rhetoric on state TV talk so strident it would have shocked Politburo members in the former Soviet Union. TV stations aired documentaries describing U.S. “plots” to attack or dismember Russia — and alleged American schemes to make Putin resign. “We are surrounded by predators, wolves,” Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin intoned on a TV talk show on election eve. Of course, such agitprop was aimed at boosting the votes for Putin by tarring opposition activists as foreign agents. And it worked: small wonder that a cabbie who voted for Putin asked me, with deep sincerity, “Why does America want to destroy us?”

Keeping a list To the editor: I read that the sweeping antiabortion bill being introduced to the Kansas Legislature will tax the abortion procedure of rape victims or procedures to save a mother’s life. I can see a room full of cigar-smoking MEN sitting in the back rooms with an extensive list of how to continue the war on women, little bit by little bit. It’s a continuing embarrassment that these hacks are doing everything they can think of to make our bounteous state look so small-minded, tight and anti-female. And they do it secretively, like burying this stupid provision in a 69-page bill. I have news for you, boys. We’re keeping lists of who votes for what. Charles Gruber, Lawrence

Lost and found To the editor: On Feb. 26, I had just returned from taking our recently adopted dog for her bedtime walk and was in the garage wiping her feet. The garage door was on its way down, but something spooked her and she bolted for the door, causing it to come back up. It was about 10:30 p.m., so looking for a black dog was impossible. I spent almost the entire next day combing the wooded area around our house to no avail. Her foster par-

ents even brought two of their dogs to help us look. I called the radio station and the humane society to alert them in case someone found her. After two and a half days, I was sure we would never see her again. Because of her history of being the smallest dog of a litter of seven, she is a very shy, scared little girl, so I knew she would never let anyone help her. However, on the third day, I got a call from the shelter saying she had been brought in by the animal control officer. This would never have happened had the people on Hunter’s Hill not called Animal Control after they were unsuccessful in luring her to them. Animal Control had to trap her in order to catch her. I want to thank whoever called Animal Control and also the officers for their diligence in catching our dog. We will be forever grateful for the help of everyone who had a hand in helping us get our dog back. Linda Trotter, Lawrence

Humility crucial for KU This is the time of year that all coaches, broadcasters and office bracket-pool participants say the same words ad nauseum: “It’s not about the seedings in the tournament. It’s all about the match-ups.” In reality, that doesn’t really apply to relatively balanced basketball teams such as Kansas University’s. For example, was Missouri a good match-up or a bad match-up for KU? Well, for a stretch starting with the final 2:04 of the Columbia game and ending with 10:50 left in the Lawrence game, it appeared to be an awful match-up. Missouri won that 31:14 stretch, 78-51. For the remaining 15:50, it looked like a terrific match-up for Kansas, which outscored the Tigers 36-19 during that memorable stretch. Kansas is even better inside than on the perimeter, but point guard Tyshawn Taylor is one of the best in the nation, so it’s not as if the Jayhawks are particularly vulnerable to any one style. In the case of KU, the most significant match-up pits the players vs. their mirrors. A confident and humble Kansas is capable of competing against any team in the country. A confident and vain Kansas is capable of stinking up the joint against any NCAA Tournamentcaliber squad. A confident and humble Kansas adheres to the scouting report. A confident and vain Kansas thinks it can win on sheer talent. Asked to speak to what type of teams make for good and bad match-ups for KU, Taylor responded in a manner that all his teammates should embrace. “I think any match-up can be a bad match-up for us if we aren’t rebounding the ball or we aren’t tuned in defensively,” Taylor said. “We know any team can beat us if we aren’t a good defensive team. A good match-up for us would be any team who plays us when we are playing well.” Confident yet humble words. “Like I said, I think if we prepare like we want to win and like we are an underdog, almost, I think it is going to be hard to beat us,” Taylor said. For the Jayhawks, the seed just might mean more than the match-up. A No. 1 seed four of the past five years, Kansas enters as a No. 2 this time. “I think the last couple of years, when we were a No. 1 seed, we felt like we had to win it,” Taylor said. “I feel the same way this year, but I don’t feel like it is on us as much. I don’t think anybody is going to call us failures or say that we let them down or we choked or whatever it might be.” Winning an eighth consecutive Big 12 championship killed any chance of being labeled failures by a reasonable person.

KU celebrates trip to NCAAs By Matt Tait

On Saturday, Kansas University women’s basketball coach Bonnie Henrickson and Nebraska women’s coach Connie Yori were in the same high school gym recruiting for the future. Little did they know, their immediate future would include a head-to-head matchup in this week’s NCAA Tournament.

For the first time in Henrickson’s eight seasons at Kansas — and the first time since 2000 — KU earned an at-large bid to the NCAAs. The 11thseeded Jayhawks will play No. 6 seed Nebraska at 6:30 p.m. Sunday in Little Rock, Ark., in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. “I saw her, got up and walked over and said, ‘Hey, congratulations on a great year. I never got to see you play, so talk to me about your

team,’” recalled Henrickson of her encounter with Yori. “I told that to the (KU) players, and they asked if she talked to me. I said, ‘Yeah, she talked to me, but I talked about us, too.’” The Jayhawks learned of their match-up with the former Big 12 foe Monday night in front of a crowd of more than 50 supporters and media members in the Naismith Room at Allen Fieldhouse. It was delivered in dramat-

ic fashion. With the ESPN broadcast of the women’s selection show blaring throughout the room, the Jayhawks watched three full regionals get released without them. The first uneasy moment of the night came shortly after 6:06 p.m., when the team saw that fellow bubble friend and conference-mate Texas, a team the Jayhawks had beaten twice this season, was in as a Please see KU WOMEN, page 3B

Self: Loss gets Jayhawks’ attention By Gary Bedore

fact it’s not fool’s gold with us anymore,” KU coach Bill Self said on Monday’s Big 12 coaches teleconference. “When you make shots and don’t guard and get away with it ... our guys saw firsthand what will happen in a one-and-done type situation, which the Big 12 tournament is also.

“I kind of like our mindset. I like where we are at. I like being able to get their attention (following Friday’s 81-72 loss to Baylor) before we go to Omaha.” Kansas will open the NCAAs at 8:57 p.m. Friday against Detroit at CenturyLink Center in Omaha, Neb. “You get their attention,

The NCAA infractions committee has hit North Carolina’s football program with a oneyear postseason ban, a reduction of 15 scholarships and three years of probation following an investigation into improper benefits and academic misconduct. In a ruling Monday, the com-

Lincecum helps Giants top Royals SURPRISE, ARIZ. (AP) — This time, Tim Lincecum was pleased with his outing. Lincecum pitched four solid innings and the San Francisco Giants beat the Kansas City Royals, 2-1, on Monday. The two-time NL Cy Young Award winner yielded an unearned run and an infield single. He struck out four and walked two after he was knocked around for five runs and seven hits in his previous outing against Colorado. Lincecum said it was “definitely� motivation not to have another similar performance. “You try to come out here and take them seriously, but know you’re coming out here with a purpose to get your work in and not necessarily care about the outcome,� he said. “But as athletes and competitors, we want the outcome to be good every time. Regardless of that, you just try to focus on what you’re working on and try to keep that competitive edge as well. “This is a lot better than my last outing. The fact I doubled my innings helps and my arm and my body still feels good and I still kept my mechanics. I’m trying to take that as a positive and run with it.� Jarrod Dyson’s single off Lincecum’s left foot in the fourth was the only hit he allowed. Lincecum was opposed by Luke Hochevar, who allowed two runs and four hits in three innings for Kansas City. The Royals selected Hochevar with the No. 1 pick in the 2006 draft and Lincecum went 10th overall that same year to the Giants. “We knew he was there and he was probably going to end up being one of the top two or three picks,� Lincecum said. “He had to have been just because of his stuff. You got to see it today; it’s live 9395, 96 (mph). I think the matter of him, just like all of us, is just a matter of locating your pitches.� He said the Royals scouted him “a little bit� before the draft. The Royals had a rough fifth inning when heralded prospects Eric Hosmer and Mike Moustakas left due to injuries. Hosmer hurt his right shoulder when he landed awkwardly diving for a ground ball in the fifth. He was checked out by the team doctor and could be able to play today.

mittee said the school was responsible for multiple violations, including academic fraud and a failure to monitor its football program. It also issued a three-year show-cause penalty for former assistant coach John Blake, who had received personal loans from an NFL agent. “This case should serve as a cautionary tale to all institutions to vigilantly monitor the

activities of those student-athletes who possess the potential to be top professional prospects,� the committee stated in its report. “It should also serve to warn student-athletes that if they choose to accept benefits from agents or their associates, they risk losing their eligibility for collegiate competition.� The postseason ban is for this fall and prevents the Tar Heels

from playing in either the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game or a bowl game. In September, North Carolina announced it would impose several penalties of its own, including vacating all 16 wins for 2008 and 2009, reducing nine scholarships over the next three academic years and putting the program on two years of probation.


Spurs PG Ford suddenly retires over spinal scare SAN ANTONIO — Spurs point guard T.J. Ford abruptly retired Monday following the latest scare to his surgically repaired spine, which once sidelined him for an entire NBA season and hampered the dazzling promise that made him a college star. Ford told reporters that lying motionless March 7 on the court against the New York Knicks wasn’t the first time it had happened, and he decided to walk away while he still had a chance. He was playing just his 14th game in an injury-prone season when Knicks guard Baron Davis elbowed him in the back, knocking him to the ground. The 28-year-old Ford didn’t move for several minutes and wobbled while being helped off the court. “If it’s anybody else, it’s just a regular play,� Ford said at a Spurs practice before Monday’s game against Washington. “But because of me and my condition, a simple elbow in the back has a different outcome than hitting someone else in the back.�

Girls Swimming Free State’s girls swimming team has the numbers — 38 swimmers and six divers — for another solid season this spring. Coach Annette McDonald said the Firebirds are eager to get started, so the biggest challenge will be getting the swimmers ready for each early meet while building endurance technique and remaining competitive. FSHS has state experience on its side. Seniors Hana Arch, Katie Kimbrough and Caroline King, juniors Annie Soderberg, Morgan Miller and Rosemary Black, as well as sophomore Kate McCurdy all have competed on the Sunflower State’s biggest stage. Hoping to join them as state qualifiers are returning swimmers senior Maggie Arensberg, juniors Emma and Catherine Norwood and sophomores Bailey Watson and Marilee Neutel. Plus, McDonald said the following program newcomers could score points for the Firebirds: junior Helmi Viinikka, sophomore Lucy Sirimongkhon-Dyck and freshmen Eliza Anderson, Courtney Caldwell and Kat LaFever. Junior Jackie Zaitz and freshman Haley Johnson join FSHS as divers. The season begins for FSHS with Wednesday and Thursday events in Emporia. Softball Coming off an eighthplace finish in the Sunflower League and a 9-11 mark in 2011, Free State’s softball team might be poised for a breakthrough season under third-year coach Lee Ice. The Firebirds’ field will be nearly covered with returning starters: seniors shortstop Sam O’Brien, center fielder Alex Hill and first baseman Elizabeth Hazlett, juniors outfielder A’Liyah Rogers and catcher Courtney Parker, and sophomores left fielder Remington Samuels and third baseman Whitney Rothwell. Said Ice: “Kids that have

been with the program now for at least three years are beginning to understand what it takes for us to be successful in the Sunflower League. All the girls have worked extremely hard to get us to where we’re at and are buying into doing whatever it takes for us as a program to take the next step.” The biggest challenge facing FSHS will be its inexperienced pitching. But Ice expects sophomore hurlers Meredith Morris and Kaley Delg to make an impact. Free State’s season begins April 3 with a home twinbill versus Olathe South.

Track Free State track coach Steve Heffernan isn’t about to get ahead of himself, but he can’t help but feel good about what he sees with this year’s team. “We have our largest girls team in school history and the largest group of freshmen,” the coach said. “Both are good signs for success this season and in the future.” The present doesn’t look too bad for the Firebirds, who have 14 athletes with state experience on their girls and boys rosters. The FSHS girls were third at the 6A state meet in 2011, and the boys finished 12th. Key returners for the girls are throwers senior Brie Mingus and sophomore Scout Wiebe, hurdler and jumper Alexa Harmon-Thomas and distance runners sophomore Bailey Sullivan and senior Lynn Robinson. The boys have sprinter senior DayShawn Berndt, junior jumper Demarko Bobo and distance runners senior Kain Anderson and sophomore Stan Skwarlo coming back. Heffernan also expects freshmen Gabby Dabney and Kiara Clark to make an impact as hurdlers and jumpers for the FSHS girls. With the numbers on the Firebirds’ side, Heffernan has a good problem to solve: “We have some depth this year, so we will be trying to figure out which events are the best fit for kids and our team,” the coach said of the early-season challenge awaiting Free State. The FSHS season begins March 27 with a Lawrence High triangular.

KU football Seven track Jayhawks All-Americans lands juco lineman J-W Staff Reports

By Matt Tait

Nearly six weeks after national signing day, the Kansas University football program continues to add prospects to its 2012 recruiting class. Monday, KU officials announced the addition of junior-college offensive lineman Aslam Sterling, a 6-foot-5, 360-pound tackle from Nassau Community College in New York. Sterling started every game of his two-year stint at NCC, helping lead the Lions to a 19-2 record and earning All-Northeast Football Conference honors during both seasons. Sterling attended Bayside High in Queens, N.Y., before moving on to NCC. He earned all-Borough and All-City honors while playing both center and right guard at BHS. A native of Springfield Garden, N.Y., Sterling chose KU over interest from West Virginia, Syracuse, Rutgers and Buffalo. He is scheduled to graduate in May and will join the Jayhawks in June. He will be eligible to play during the 2012 season. Coach Charlie Weis’ latest addition brings KU’s recruiting haul this offseason to 23. Three players already are on campus, and two of those three will count toward the numbers for KU’s 2011 class.

Seven Kansas University track and field athletes collected 10 All-America distinctions, it was announced Monday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association. It’s the most All-Americans during an indoor season in program history and comes on the heels of the Jayhawks’ runner-up finish at the NCAA Indoor over the weekend in Nampa, Idaho.

KU juniors Andrea Geubelle, Denesha Morris and Taylor Washington and sophomore Diamond Dixon earned first-team All-America honors for the second-consecutive season. Geubelle, from University Place, Wash., won the Indoor triple-jump title, and Dixon won the 400 on Saturday. Joining Geubelle on the long jump All-America list is junior Francine Simp-

son. Simpson placed sixth at nationals. The 4x400-meter relay team of Dixon, Washington, Morris and junior Paris Daniels also earned spots on the first team. Alena Krechyk — 13th in the Indoor weight throw — was a secondteam All-American. Daniels also was second-team in the 200 meters after her 11th-place finish.

No. 9 seed. The news created a stirring reaction. “I didn’t know what to think,” junior point guard Angel Goodrich said. “I was a little frustrated at first, just thinking in my head, ‘What’s that do to us?’” Not long after — when the second of four regionals was released — several Jayhawks felt their hearts skip when they saw “Kansas St.” come across the screen as a No. 8 seed. Once they realized it actually was the Wildcats, most members of the team laughed. That included Henrickson, who said, though heart-wrenching, the moment provided a needed dose of relief. After three full regions were out, the Jayhawks were down to the nitty gritty. Although 16 spots remained, the Jayhawks realistically knew that they only had a shot at two or three of them. Collectively, they all leaned forward in their chairs and stared a little harder at the TV screen hanging on the wall. When the analysts reached the bottom half of the Des Moines bracket, the magic happened, and the place exploded. “I was like, ‘They would do that,’” said Goodrich of

In the end, the KU women learned that their résumé was good enough to earn a spot in this year’s field of 64, and that set off a wild celebration that brought a few tears, lots of hugs and a pile of chairs that at one time served as the seats for a nervous bunch and later the perfect backdrop for one heck of a party. “It’s really, really cool, and their reaction is the best,” a still-glowing Henrickson told media members shortly after the celebration subsided. “Just listening to them and watching them was priceless.

what you want to see from them, and you want all of your student-athletes to feel that. I’m just really happy for them.” Despite finishing the season with two victories in its final eight games and bowing out in the quarterfinals of last weekend’s Big 12 tournament, the Jayhawks (19-12 overall, 8-10 Big 12) made the NCAA field as an at-large selection, one of seven schools from the Big 12 to earn a bid. Many believed it was the strength of the conference, and the Jayhawks’ five road victories within it, that helped them qualify. “I feel like we’re in the best conference in the country,” said Aishah Sutherland, the team’s lone senior. “Eight (Big

12) teams probably should have been selected, but seven is good. We’re in it, and that’s all that matters.” Added Henrickson: “We felt like how well we played and how hard we played down the stretch and being in the best women’s basketball conference in the country would help us.” KU’s focus now shifts from sweating out a tourney bid to preparing for the Cornhuskers. Last year, in its final season in the Big 12, Nebraska swept two games against the Jayhawks, including a 25-point victory in Lincoln, Neb. With former Nebraska assistant (2005-10) and current KU assistant Tory Verdi now on their side, the Jayhawks believe they’ll be ready for the challenge. Verdi was one of the people in the room Monday who was moved to tears. He also kickstarted one of the team’s celebratory jump circles. “Nebraska … we used to play them,” Sutherland said. “We know all about them, and Tory used to coach there, so that’s gonna help a lot.” Added Goodrich: “This whole weekend’s been nerve-racking, just waiting for this moment and wondering what’s gonna happen. But we got what we wanted, and it was worth the wait. It really was.”


NCAAs on the heels of a defeat. “I would say going into it the most recent previous years we probably felt like we had a little bit more momentum only because we won the Big 12 tournament,” Self said of the past two seasons. “But like I told ’em yesterday, the four teams that were supposedly projected as No. 1 seeds, none of ’em won their conference tournament (KU, North Carolina, Kentucky, Syracuse). We didn’t play very well at all.” KU junior forward Thomas Robinson said Monday on Jim Rome’s national radio show that the loss to Baylor “could have been a blessing in disguise.” “The extra day benefited us, us not being so deep. We are six, seven guys deep. We all play a lot of minutes,” Robinson said. The loss may have helped his personal motivation entering the NCAAs. “I didn’t compete in that game. I didn’t come ready to play. I let another bunch of guys outplay me,” Robinson said. “He (Self) wasn’t happy with that at all. I wasn’t happy with it. He was definitely angry with it. It’s my fault we lost that game. It’s something we learned from. I’m kind of glad it happened, kind of a wakeup call for me, to get my head back on straight and ready for the tournament. I feel I didn’t show up. Baylor’s bigs got the best of me. It’s the last time that will happen for this year.” Robinson, by the way, told Rome he hadn’t made a final decision on whether or not he’d enter the NBA Draft or return for his senior year. He said he was focused on KU making a run in the NCAAs and would decide at the conclusion of the season. It’s been a foregone conclusion Robinson will be off to the pros after this season. O

All-America: KU’s Robinson on Monday was named to the U.S. Basketball Writers Association All-America team. He was joined on the first team by Kentucky’s Anthony Davis, Michigan State’s Draymond Green, Ohio State’s Jared Sullinger and Creighton’s Doug McDermott. O

Know the foe: Self said he had plenty of information on Detroit, the Horizon League tournament champ that enters Friday’s game with a 22-13 record and No. 15 seed. “The thing is, basically we get everything off the computer. It used to be hustling tapes, compiling video services. That is not as big a necessity now,” Self said. “Where you are scrambling around is trying to get with people on scouting-report tendencies, which we divided this

weekend among our three (assistant) coaches in which every coach has an assignment. That’s what they’ll be working on last night, today, through tomorrow morning, to get a book on our opponent as fast as we can.” Self said he watched one of the five tapes No. 2 seed KU acquired on Detroit on Sunday night. “They are very, very athletic, will try to pressure, and of course they’ve got a great player,” Self said of sophomore guard Ray McCallum. “They’ve got more McDonald’s AllAmericans (one) than we do. We respect Ray a lot. We tried to recruit him. That is not a typical 15 seed. I was shocked when they were on that line.” Of McCallum, Self said: “He came to Late Night a few years ago. I think in ’08. He was young. He and his mother came up (from Detroit). It really came down to his mother liked the Detroit coach a lot more than Kansas’ coach,” Self added with a laugh. Ray McCallum, Sr., is the Titans’ head coach. O

Late start: Self on the fact the Jayhawks play the late game in Omaha: “That will be a long day. Fortunately for us, we played a ton (of late games). Four of our last six (in regular season) were 8 p.m. games,” Self said. “We’ll probably have to find some way to occupy the day. “Personally, I think that is too late to be playing ball, but our guys will adjust fine, and both teams if I’m not mistaken have to play at the same time so there will be no advantage or disadvantage.” O

Vitale likes KU: ESPN’s Dick Vitale, a former head coach at Detroit, believes KU will win. Detroit opened as a 15-point underdog. “It’s a tough, tough draw,” Vitale told the Detroit News. “I looked at (Detroit) at better than a No. 15 (seed). (Ray) McCallum is a stud. He’s a scorer. Kansas has lost to Northern Iowa and Bucknell in the past. Detroit is athletic, quick and they have a strut to them. But you’ve got to give the edge to Kansas. Thomas Robinson is a great player, but what helps Robinson is the development of (Jeff) Withey, their 7-footer. This is a great basketball team. No matter what happens it’s been a tremendous season for Detroit,” added Vitale. “They’ve played sensational the last 10 games.” O

Roomies: McCallum and Robinson were roommates at the LeBron James Skills camp last summer. “We’re not close friends,” McCallum told the Detroit News. “He’s a cool guy. He has a remarkable story with his mom (overcoming loss of Lisa, who died Robinson’s sophomore season). “Kansas has a lot of great players,” McCallum added. “(Tyshawn) Taylor is a real aggressive guard. He’s a big-time scorer who makes plays. I just have to have a defensive mind-set.”

Vegas likes UK, Ohio State to win LAS VEGAS (AP) — Las Vegas casinos like top seed Kentucky better than all the other teams in the NCAA tournament, but think Ohio State is better than any of the other No. 1s. Oddsmaker Mike Colbert of Cantor Gaming said Monday that Kentucky is a 5-2 favorite to win the championship, despite losing the Southeastern Conference championship to Vanderbilt on Sunday. “They started a little slow but I think they’ve been the best team for the bulk of the year,” said Colbert, Cantor’s risk management director. “I think the loss will end up being good for them — I think they were getting slightly arrogant.”

No. 2 seed Ohio State was 6-1 as the second favorite in odds Cantor shared with the majority of Nevada’s 186 sports books, Colbert said. “That probably surprises some people because they got beat yesterday by Michigan State in their conference championship,” he said. “That’s a strong statement,” he said. Sin City is predicting five upsets in the first round: No. 9 Connecticut over No. 8 Iowa State, No. 10 West Virginia over No. 7 Gonzaga, No. 9 Alabama over No. 8 Creighton, No. 11 North Carolina State over No. 6 San Diego State and No. 10 Purdue over No. 7 St. Mary’s.



NBA Bulls 104, Knicks 99 CHICAGO — Derrick Rose scored 32 points, and Chicago beat New York on Monday night, handing the Knicks their sixth straight loss. Rose shot 12 of 29 from the floor and had six rebounds and seven assists as the Bulls got their 10th win in 11 games. Taj Gibson had 15 points and a team-high 13 boards for Chicago, which outrebounded New York 5638. The Bulls entered the game leading the league in rebounding margin. Carmelo Anthony led the Knicks with 21 points and Amare Stoudemire added 20, but the two combined for just seven points in the fourth quarter as the Bulls pulled away. Jeremy Lin had 15 points and eight assists for New York, but shot just 4-of11 from the floor and had little luck stopping Rose.

Jazz 105, Pistons 90 SALT LAKE CITY — Al Jefferson scored 33 points just 24 hours after his grandmother’s death, leading Utah past Detroit. C.J. Miles added 15 points, including three 3-pointers in the fourth quarter, to help the Jazz end a two-game skid and snap Detroit’s three-game winning streak. Rodney Stuckey scored 29 points for the Pistons, who have not won in Salt Lake City since 2002 — losing their last nine visits here. The win ended a dramafilled day for the Jazz that started with a closed-door meeting between guard Raja Bell and team brass. It came two days after Bell was sent home from a road trip following a verbal clash with coach Tyrone Corbin, but both sides proclaimed the matter closed. Bell started, but had just one point.

Spurs 112, Wizards 97 SAN ANTONIO — Tony Parker scored 31 points in his return from a onegame absence to lead San Antonio past Washington. Parker, who missed Friday’s loss to the Los Angeles Clippers with a strained right quadriceps, hit 13 of 18 shots and had seven assists. Tiago Splitter scored 17 points, Tim Duncan added 14, and DeJuan Blair had 11 points and 12 rebounds. The Spurs extended their winning streak over the Wizards to 12.

hurt that I didn’t come to the wedding. She said my absence meant I did not support their marriage, and they needed time to “heal” from this insult. Michelle also was offended that Rick’s wedding speech did not make enough mention of her. Rick and I were livid. Not only did my doctor forbid me from traveling to the wedding, but Rick spent a long time composing a thoughtful, funny and heartfelt speech and even delivered some of it in Michelle’s native language. Rick angrily con-

‘Fashion Star’ is new, yet very familiar I have seen the future of television, and it is “Fashion Star” (8:30 p.m., NBC). Not really. But every so often you have to write the “I have seen the future ...” line or they take away your critic license. This began in 1974, when writer Jon Landau claimed he saw the future of rock in the presence of Bruce Springsteen. The rest, as they say, is history. And history shows that Landau started making serious money when he hung up his pen and started producing music — for Bruce Springsteen, among others. In its own small, glitzy way, “Fashion Star” is trying to reinvent television. It’s hard, though, to resist history’s gravitational pull when you carry the ballast of so much reality television, namely Jessica Simpson and Nicole Richie. How can “Fashion Star” claim to be pioneering anything when it is essentially the 99th remake of “Project Runway”? “Star” also borrows just as furiously from “The Voice” and “America’s Got Talent” as it does from Heidi Klum’s show. As on “Runway,” this show pits 14 designers against one another as they try to please three judges: Simpson, Richie and John Varvatos. But what sets this show apart is the presence of three department store buyers who evaluate every new mini “collection.” The buyers can either bid a dollar amount or hit the button that indicates “No Bid” and results in a rude noise. It’s not unlike the big X on “America’s Got Talent.” And as on “Shark Tank,” the buyers can bid against one another for the designer’s wares. The show’s major hook is that any outfit given a bid will be available the very next day either in that department store or in its online shop.

Tonight’s other highlights

Parenting by proxy on “Raising Hope” (7 p.m., Fox).

Schmidt feels used on “New Girl” (8 p.m., Fox).

A cannibal problem emerges on “The River” (8 p.m., ABC).

Mistaken identity on “Body of Proof” (9 p.m., ABC).

Ava gets tough on “Justified” (9 p.m., FX).

“Wild Serengeti” (9 p.m., Animal Planet) follows a massive annual migration.

fronted Edward and disinvited them to the baptism. Edward then claimed it was a miscommunication. When Edward and Michelle announced that they were pregnant, we sent a thoughtful baby gift, which Edward and Michelle did not acknowledge. Rick is determined to rebuild the friendship. He calls Edward at least once a month, but the calls are often unanswered and unreturned. It’s been a year since “the phone call,” and I’m still furious, but Rick is grieving. Edward does not deserve my husband’s loyalty and forgiveness, but for Rick’s sake, I want them to reconcile. What can I do? — Scorned and Angry Dear Scorned: We are so sorry that Edward’s marriage has thrown a wrench into his relationship with Rick, but these things happen. The only one who can fix it is Edward. Be supportive of


For Tuesday, March 13: This year when you are confused, go within. You have a remarkable sixth sense, and this gift will evolve over the next 12 months. If you are single, you will be drawn to someone quite unique. If you are attached, as a couple you gain more understanding by imagining what it is like to be the other person. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult Aries (March 21-April 19)  You move through a problem with ease. Your sense of direction could be off, as your mind climbs many imaginary mountains. Tonight: Escape the here and now. Taurus (April 20-May 20)  A close associate or partner could add to the confusion. You might gain a lot of insight by pulling back. Tonight: Dinner for two. Gemini (May 21-June 20)  Others come forward and could cause your well-planned day to fall apart. Listen to requests and perhaps accept an invitation or two. Tonight: Defer to others. Cancer (June 21-July 22)  Assess a situation surrounding your daily life. You might not know which way to go with a personal decision. Don’t decide until you feel certain. Tonight: Let your mind drift to a favorite form of entertainment. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)  While others stress out, you discover how uptight you are. Listen to news and integrate it, knowing that better outcomes lie ahead. Tonight: Romp the night away. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)  Your focus on security

Rick by sympathizing without being negative about Edward or Michelle. Encourage new friendships by introducing yourselves to other couples with young children. The best thing you can do for your husband is to help him move forward one day at a time. Dear Annie: “Sibling Support” said her mother is always asking for money for the younger siblings but spends it on herself. The next time she has occasion to talk to her mother, she should open the conversation by saying, “Mom, I’m a little short this week. Could you possibly lend me a few dollars?” I guarantee this will nip those requests for help in the bud without having to refuse her outright. “Sibling Support” can then buy treats for the younger siblings directly, leaving Mom out of the loop. — St. Maarten, Dutch Caribbean

takes a prominent role in decision making. You suddenly could become irritated and feel as if you are not getting anywhere. Try to mellow out. Tonight: Happily head home. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  You might want to relax before you try to understand what is happening. The unexpected shakes up a partner, like it or not. Tonight: Catch up on a friend’s news. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  Be aware of what is going on financially — the unexpected could run riot. You might want to evaluate information that is coming forward. Tonight: Your treat. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)  You are all smiles. Confusion surrounds a personal matter. Attempts to gain clarity ultimately prove to be unsuccessful. Tonight: Do your thing. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)  Use today to gather information. You might not like everything you hear. You will have much to ponder. Tonight: Vanish while you can. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  Your desires and ability to focus come through. A meeting could be far more important than you realize. Tonight: Where the crowds are. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)  You could be stressed out by someone who creates a lot of tension — just by hearing his or her name. There might not be an immediate solution. Tonight: In the limelight.
