Senate votes to save state Arts Commission T O P E K A (AP ) — State senators on Wednesday saved the Kansas Arts Commission as a government agency, but arts advocates’ victory over Gov. Sam Brownback could prove shortlived because Republican Senate leaders who opposed the GOP governor’s plan expect him to veto its funding. The Senate voted 24-13 to reject Brownback’s plan to convert the commission into a private, nonprofit group, save the state about $575,000 annually and push for more aggressive private fundraising for arts programs. His administration still would have provided $200,000 in state funds for
the commission’s programs during the fiscal year beginning July 1 but wasn’t committing to continued funding into the future. Brownback outLEGISLATURE lined the plan in his proposed budget and issued an executive reorganization order last month, saying the change would take effect July 1. But the state constitution allows one legislative chamber to kill such an order — and the Senate did that, by adopting a resolution.
Arts advocates packed the chamber’s galleries and broke into cheers and applause when the vote was announced. They’d inundated legislators with e-mails, arguing the change would cripple arts programs and cost the state federal dollars. But Senate President Steve Morris, a Hugoton Republican who opposed Brownback’s order, said the governor warned the chamber’s leaders that he’ll use his power to veto individual budget items on the commission’s funding.

Sales taxes keeping projects on schedule ———
Despite down economy, revenue sustaining current infrastructure improvements By Chad Lawhorn firstname.lastname@example.org
Despite a down economy, a trio of sales taxes approved in 2008 to improve infrastructure and public transit are meeting expectations, according to a new report from Lawrence City Hall. “We’re continuing to watch it closely,” City Manager David Corliss said of sales tax collections. “We’re very much impacted by the national economy, but we’ve been fortunate that we were very conservative in how much these sales taxes would generate.”
New trial Prosecutors indicated after Fairchild declared a mistrial they would retry the case. “We truly appreciate the service of the jurors, and like them, we are disappointed that a verdict was not reached,” Douglas County District Attorney Charles Branson said in a statement. “We will review our presentation and prepare for the new trial.” A new jury will hear the case. Fairchild scheduled the retrial for Aug. 8, but he said it could occur sooner depending on his trial docket. Kerns said the defense was disappointed the jury was unable to reach a verdict in its favor, but he indicated his side would be ready
In the works The three taxes — a 0.3 percent sales tax for infrastructure, a 0.2 percent sales tax for transit operations and a 0.05 percent sales tax for transit enhancement — generated $7,332,143 in 2010. That was about 1.3 percent more than the $7.23 million than City Hall “I say, let’s sell leaders had projected when some Final Four Tthey were pitching the sales shirts.” tax proposals to voters in November 2008.

Hung jury leads to mistrial in murder case By George Diepenbrock email@example.com
A Douglas County judge declared a mistrial Wednesday morning in the first-degree murder trial of Durrell Jones after jurors were unable to reach a verdict. “To me there’s just not enough evidence to prove that he’s guilty,” juror Brenda Davis said as she left the judicial building. After four days of testimony last week, prosecutors said the evidence pointed to Jones, 26, of Kansas City, Kan., shooting and killing Anthony Vital, 28, on Oct. 14, 2006, in rural Lawrence. Prosecutors say Jones wanted to collect on a drug debt. But Jones’ defense attorney John Kerns argued the state’s key witness, Major C. Edwards Jr., a
co-defendant who pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter in the case, was not credible. Davis said she thought Jones was not guilty and only Jones two jurors in the end believed he was guilty. “We need more evidence,” she said. “A lot of the jury thinks he is not guilty.” The jury of 11 women and one man had deliberated for more than 18 hours since it got the case Friday afternoon. Tuesday afternoon Chief District Judge Robert Fairchild had called the jury into his courtroom to ask their progress in the

case. The presiding juror said at one point members thought they were at a stalemate but they decided to review every piece of submitted evidence and testimony. “There is movement, and continued deliberation might be helpful,” the presiding juror said Tuesday. “I would say that it would be a disservice to this process if we did not continue.” Jurors had the option of convicting Jones of premeditated first-degree murder, intentional second-degree murder or finding him not guilty in the case. But they were unable to reach a unanimous verdict. Family members of both Jones and Vital declined to comment Wednesday morning. Jones remains in custody awaiting the new trial.

to pull over in a rural driveway two miles west of town. Then Edwards said the men bailed out of the car, and Jones shot Vital three times. They left the body there, and Edwards said Jones threatened him. They returned to a party at an apartment on Sixth Street. Edwards, who prosecutors said would get four years off his sentence for testifying, was arrested days later in Mississippi. He said he had left town because he feared Jones would kill him. But Kerns had questioned why Edwards, who said he was held at gunpoint in the car, had entered a plea in the case. Edwards said he was remorseful for leading Jones to Vital when he knew Jones had a gun, but Kerns accused Edwards of trying to pin the murder on Jones to get a shorter sentence. Prosecutors said items at the murder scene contained DNA of both Edwards and Jones. Kerns argued prosecutors could not prove how the items linked to Jones, a Neosporin cap and an unsmoked Moore cigarette, got there. He said Edwards had been driving several people around Lawrence that day and the items could have fallen out of the car. Davis, a juror in the case, said she thought prosecutors needed to look more at other people Jones and Edwards were around that night. Witnesses said the two men were at a Lawrence party with several known drug dealers. Davis said she had a problem believing several witnesses in the case. “They were all on drugs,” she said. “And they would change their story.”

to present their evidence to a second jury. “I can appreciate the fact that the jury did take this case seriously by the fact that they deliberated for more than 17 hours,” Kerns said. “It showed they focused on the case. They didn’t take their job lightly, and I respect that.” A mistrial by hung jury in a Douglas County murder case is not uncommon. In 2008, a jury could not reach a verdict in the firstdegree murder and aggravated burglary trial of Allen Dale Smith, a Topeka man who was COURTS accused of shooting and killing jeweler David Boose at Boose’s Lecompton-area home. Prosecutors convinced a second jury months later to convict Smith of first-degree murder in the case.

Brownback spokeswoman Sherriene Jones-Sontag wouldn’t confirm the threat, but she also didn’t rule out a veto as the governor and legislators attempt to eliminate a projected $493 million budget shortfall for the next fiscal year. “He will continue to look for ways to streamline state government, as well as ways to restructure it, and ultimately save taxpayers money,” Jones-Sontag said. “Every option is on the table.” Still, the commission and arts advocates savored their victory, as half of the Senate’s 32 Republicans voted against the governor’s proposal, along with all eight Democrats. “It isn’t about the money. It’s about intelligence. It’s about our ability to reason. It’s about our ability to think, and that comes through the arts,” said Ann Garvey, a Wichita arts advocate serving on the board of the Mid-America Arts Alliance. “The Kansas Arts Commission functions extraordinarily eff iMORE INFO ciently and effectively.” The comGovernor’s plan mission has on Kansas Arts Commission was 12 members appointed ERO 39. by the goverResolution nor, a staff of rejecting it was seven and a SR 1819. current budget of about $1.6 million, about half of which comes from state tax dollars. Most of its spending is grants to artists and arts groups. Some Republican legislators have long questioned whether arts funding is a core function of state government, and several GOP senators said while they support arts programs, other priorities such as education, social services and prisons take precedence in tough times. “We are really pinching pennies at this point,” said Sen. Ty Masterson, an Andover Republican. “We have cut many portions of our government.” But opponents of Brownback’s order said the arts generate jobs and improve the quality of life in communities across the state, helping attract and keep businesses. Some advocates also worried that Kansas would phase out state funding for the arts, setting an example for other states. Arts advocates and Brownback’s administration have debated whether the change the governor sought would have cost the state $778,000 in federal funds. His staff contends the $200,000 in state funds — which would have flowed to the new, nonprofit Kansas Arts Foundation through the State Historical Society — would have been sufficient to preserve the federal funds. They said the foundation could have offset a drop in state funds with private fundraising. But arts advocates have said that’s not the case. Garvey said not only would the state have lost federal funds, it would have lost about $800,000 in additional funds from her alliance, which distributes public and private dollars in Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma and Texas. She said of Brownback’s plan, “It’s so flawed, I can’t even begin to talk about it because it’s flawed on every level.”

N.Y. Times journalists missing in Libya Four New York Times journalists covering the fighting in Libya were reported missing Wednesday, and the newspaper held out hope that they were alive and in the custody of the Libyan government. Editors last heard from the journalists on Tuesday as they were covering the retreat of rebels from the town of Ajdabiya, and Libyan officials told the newspaper they were trying to locate the four, executive editor Bill Keller said in a statement. The Times said there were unconfirmed reports that Libyan forces had detained the foursome. The missing journalists are Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Anthony Shadid, the newspaper’s Beirut bureau chief; Stephen Farrell, a reporter and videographer; and photographers Tyler Hicks and Lynsey Addario. In 2009, Farrell was kidnapped by the Taliban and later rescued by British commandos.

CIA contractor freed by ‘blood money’ An American CIA contractor who shot and killed two Pakistani men was released from prison Wednesday and left Pakistan after more than $2 million in “blood money” was paid to his victims’ families, defusing a dispute that threatened an alliance vital to defeating al-Qaida and ending the Afghan war. In what appeared to be carefully choreographed end to a crisis that had stoked anti-Americanism to new heights, the U.S. Embassy said the Justice Department had opened an investigation into the killings on Jan. 27 by Raymond Allen Davis. It thanked the families for “their generosity” in pardoning Davis. U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton denied the U.S. had made any payments, but she didn’t dispute that the men’s families were compensated. A lawyer for the families said the money came from the Americans.

U.S. life expectancy reaches new record U.S. life expectancy has hit another all-time high, rising above 78 years. The estimate of 78 years and 2 months is for a baby born in 2009 and comes from a preliminary report released Wednesday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. About 2.4 million people died in the United States in 2009 — roughly 36,000 fewer deaths than the year before. Deaths were down for a range of causes, from heart disease to homicide, so experts don’t believe there’s one simple explanation for the increase in life expectancy. Better medical treatment, vaccination campaigns and public health measures against smoking are believed to be having an impact. U.S. life expectancy has been generally increasing since at least the 1940s, though some years it held steady and a few times it temporarily dipped.

Though the economy is beginning to show signs of recovery, the road to employment can still be rough, as those attending a career fair at Holiday Inn Lawrence on Wednesday can attest. Fifteen companies from around the region attended, including Brandon Woods at Alvamar, Lawrence Memorial Hospital and Pinnacle Career Institute. The event was sponsored by the Journal-World. Most of those companies were looking to hire people for several full-time positions. “We’re always looking for
good people to add to our nursing staff,” said Teresa Prochaska, Brandon Woods’ human resources director. The retirement community was also looking for workers in housekeeping, food and beverage service and various other roles. Prochaska said participating in these sorts of job fairs were beneficial because of the mix of people they draw. “Seeing other employers is always good, too,” she said. The economy is showing some promising signs, said Keri Rodriquez, an employment consultant at Cottonwood Inc. She was at the career fair working with clients. She works with people who have
barriers to employment such as disabilities and limited work experience. Rodriquez has been seeing more of her clients land interviews. “In the last couple of weeks, things have been opening up a bit,” Rodriquez said. “Still, every job seems like it has hundreds of applicants.” For many who are still unemployed, however, such as 60-year-old Norman Colwell of Ottawa, the recovery seems like it’s taking a long time. He’s been out of work since July. “It’s just no end in sight, really,” he said of the country’s economy. “I’ve got several upcoming interviews, so we’ll see how it works out.”

MARLENE MERRILL is one of nine people campaigning for four available seats on the Lawrence school board. The retired educator is an incumbent board member, having been elected to her four-year term in 2007.
Marlene Merrill is nearly four years into studying, proposing and determining ways to steer the Lawrence school district through curriculum implementations, school reconfigurations, bond issue expenditures, budget-cutting moves and school-closing deliberations. And she wants to go back for more. “I am volunteering my expertise,” said Merrill, a member of the Lawrence school board since 2007. “I know a lot
about education; I think I provide that aspect to board decisions. I want Lawrence schools to be the very best schools we can have and, in many ways, Lawrence schools are excellent. “But part of the reason I’m running is to complete the work we’ve started.” Merrill is a retired teacher, school psychologist, special education director and director of assessments and grants. She is among nine people campaigning for four available seats on the board. The election is April 5. Please see SCHOOL, page 5A
TOPEKA — Public institutions of higher education in Kansas have a multi-billion-dollar impact on the economy and improve the quality of the state, according to a study released Wednesday. “This is not the time to be under-investing in something that is bringing such great returns,” said Ernest Goss, director of Dever-based The Goss Institute for Economic Research. Goss, an economics professor at Creighton University, did the $36,000 report on behalf of the Kansas Board of Regents. Regents Chairman Gary Sherrer said the study should help the public and Legislature understand the impact that higher education has on the state’s economy. The 51-page report breaks down that economic impact by county, legislative district and institution. The Kansas Legislature is deciding on funding higher education for the next fiscal year in the face of a $500 million revenue shortfall. Higher education has been cut approximately $100 million over the past two years, but Gov. Sam Brownback has called for essentially a flat level of funding for the next fiscal year, which starts July 1. The new study said public universities and colleges in Kansas had an estimated economic impact of $7.3 billion in 2010. And each dollar in state tax support resulted in nearly $12 in Kansas economic activity, the report said. The economic impacts included $3.4 billion in wages and salaries, 95,327 in additional jobs and $485 million in state and local tax collections. Douglas County, home of Kansas University, received the largest economic impact at $1.5 billion. The study also looked at the connection between wages and education levels. In 2009, workers with a bachelor’s degree earned almost $50,000 per year more than a high school dropout. “The evidence is pretty clear you want to keep an educated workforce,” said Goss. — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

Gayle Sigurdson, who is on the Douglas County Commission on Aging Housing Committee, said while lowincome housing was available, there are long waiting lists for many properties that can last years. “People want to come to Lawrence to retire,” she said. The new development would serve people who had already lived in the county and had saved while working but might not want to purchase a more expensive home. Buford, who also lives in the area where the project is proposed, said she thought a complaint from the public might be that the land was used as a park, although it is
not designated for that purpose. “In my mind, this is a better use, and it would allow the county to collect taxes,” she said. United Way, which is adjacent to the land, used to be a county-owned nursing home. The land Tenants to Homeowners wants was intended to be an expansion to the nursing home before the county stopped operating it. The plan has the support of the Kaw Valley Older Women’s League and the Douglas County Commission on Aging. After Tenants to Homeowners develops its plan for the land further, the commission will decide whether to convey the land to the group. A public hearing will take place before the decision is made. — Reporter Brenna Hawley can be reached at 832-7217.

Repeal of immigrant tuition bill rejected By Scott Rothschild firstname.lastname@example.org
T O P E K A — An effort to repeal the law that allows instate tuition for some undocumented students was dealt a setback Wednesday. The Senate Federal and State Affairs Committee on a unanimous voice vote rejected the bill after hearing emotional testimony from several people who came to the United States as children. They later graduated from Kansas high schools and then attended state institutions of higher education. Alaide Vilchis, a Kansas University graduate, was one of those. After the vote, she said she was thankful the committee considered the testimony of those who benefited from the law. “I’m glad that other undocumented students will have an opportunity to be a Jayhawk,” she said. Vilchis said defenders of the law will have to remain vigilant because the repeal

Voter Education Coalition announces Candidate Fairs, forum The local Voter Education Coalition has announced plans for a Lawrence school board forum and a Candidate Fair for school board and City Commission candidates. A forum featuring candidates for the Lawrence school board is scheduled for 7 p.m. Tuesday in the City Commission chambers at City Hall. The event will be streamed live on LJWorld.com and broadcast live on Knology Channel 25. Questions for the candidates will be provided by VEC partners and will be
accepted from audience members attending the event. Replays of the 90-minute forum will be available after the event at LJWorld.com and OnDemand on the Knology system. A Candidate Fair for candidates in both the school and city races is planned from 10 a.m. to noon April 2 at the Lawrence Visitors Center, 402 N. Second St. Tables will be provided for all the candidates, who have been invited to pass out materials and meet with voters.
“This is a new event for us, and we hope local voters will take advantage of this opportunity to meet informally with candidates and ask any questions they have before voting on April 5,” said VEC co-chair Pattie Johnston. The Voter Education Coalition is a nonpartisan partnership of more than 20 community organizations aimed at promoting civil dialogue and voter participation. A full list of partners is available on the VEC’s Facebook page.
The School of Business’ part-time MBA program in the Kansas City area experienced a drop-off in the rankings. The school moved from 29th place among public schools two years ago to 46th place this year, said Toni Dixon, a spokeswoman for the school. The magazine didn’t rank the programs last year. Dixon said the school’s full-time MBA program wasn’t listed in the magazine’s rankings because it didn’t have enough students to qualify for inclusion. Mazza said he didn’t anticipate that the law school would suffer long-term nega-
tive effects from the drop that he said should be temporary. He said he was pleased with other parts of the report, some of which could help bolster the law school’s ranking next year. KU law’s reputation score went up, for example. It also ranked among the top 25 public schools in a new listing the magazine created called “When Lawyers Do the Hiring.” That list is based on the opinions of people doing the hiring at the some of the nation’s major law firms.

Issues While three of her board colleagues will step aside voluntarily when their terms expire in June, Merrill is asking voters for an extension. And she knows there are plenty of issues to grab their attention. Among the plans Merrill has for a second term: ● Implement a plan for elementary education. “Whether that means consolidating buildings, building new buildings or designating some buildings for special programs, we need to have movement in that direction,” she said. “We’ve gotten some excellent groundwork from the (Lawrence Elementary School Facility Vision) Task Force. My goal is to complete that picture.” Task force members met for eight months before recommending that the board close Wakarusa Valley School next year and then pursue consolidating six schools — Cordley, Hillcrest, Kennedy, New York, Pinckney and Sunset Hill — into three or four schools within three to five years, using financing sought from a yetto-be-determined bond issue. ● Implement full-day kindergarten in all elementary schools. Such programming now is available in eight of the district’s 15 elementary schools. “I want to see it in every building, for all of our kids,” she said. “The research is very clear: It substantially aids a student’s growth, increases their vocabulary, increases their interest in
learning and makes them successful learners. It helps them. It’s money well spent.” ● Find money for such initiatives. Merrill understands that the district faces starting the next academic year with $3 million less than it had to start 2010-11. That said, she is willing to look into closing or consolidating schools, or increasing class sizes, to free up money for high-priority needs. “We’ve cut counseling,” she said. “We’ve cut our prevention workers, the WRAP program, all these things are gone. We cut nurses a little bit last year. We cut all the learning coaches. … We cut para(professional)s last year, too. There are really not many places that are left in the budget that we can pull money from, and still be able to successfully educate kids. “So that only leaves a couple of places: closing schools, or increasing the number of students in every classroom — or both. But if we tackle that wisely, and close the schools that are part of a comprehensive plan, I think we will provide some opportunities.” ● Continue programs and initiatives to “close the achievement gap” in schools. Minority students and other “at-risk” students who tend to lag behind others in terms of academic achievement are being helped by a variety of efforts, she said, including the Courageous Conversations program that helps address race issues in schools. That program needs to continue, and the board needs to work on ways to boost professional development for teachers to help focus on closing the gap. ● Propose a bond issue. All elementary schools need physical upgrades and other
renovations, she said, and such a program needs to be developed along with a plan to consolidate schools so that efficiency is improved while enhancing programming. The plan should be built using the task force’s foundation, she said, and formed with guidance from principals, teachers, parents and others focused on the welfare of students. “We need to do it from the ground up, and do it by generating the common interest to consolidate,” Merrill said. “I would hope we can be persuasive: It’s easier to give up the old if you feel positive about what the future would be. “I’m not saying it would be easy, but it would be a mistake to just make an autocratic decision.”
Background Merrill earned a bachelor’s degree in education in 1962 from Purdue University, after graduating third in her class of 340 at Bishop Noll High School in Hammond, Ind. She earned two master’s degrees — in American history, from Purdue, and in school psychology, from Illinois State University — before receiving a doctorate in school psychology, with an emphasis in school administration, from Kansas University in 1981. She spent 13 years as a school psychologist and about 20 years as an administrator, including a stint as director for assessments and grants in the Lawrence district. She retired in 2008, after performing educational research for the Kansas City, Kan., school district. — Schools reporter Mark Fagan can be reached at 832-7188.

Kansas House adopts cuts to budget
See the parade T O P E K A ( AP ) — A second Chairman Marc Rhoades. won’t ratify the governor’s in person or online attempt at cutting the 2011 The bill also would ratify actions until it works the 2012 state budget cleared the Kansas House on Wednesday, but it was a largely futile effort since the Senate appears to have no interest in considering a bill that doesn’t include the 2012 budget. Negotiations between the chambers broke down last week as they tried to work out differences between separate spending bills each had previously approved. The House and governor want enough cuts to save the state about $35 million, but the Senate is less willing to make such deep cuts. The House version approved Wednesday would give the state about $35 million in reserves on June 30 and includes many of the cuts both sides agreed to, such as increasing special education spending to prevent a loss of federal funds, said House Appropriations Committee
cuts and funding shifts imposed Friday by Republican Gov. Sam Brownback. His actions, which Democrats said were legally premature, would make use of new federal dollars to replace a cut in public schools to get the state to the break-even point in June. “This budget bill is the same bill that the governor put out,” said Rhoades, a Newton Republican. “I can’t predict what the Senate will do.” He added: “Our whole attempt was not to put one over on the Senate, or the House for that matter.” But the bill likely won’t be debated in the Senate, which means a budget decision is unlikely before lawmakers recess in early April for three weeks. Senate Ways and Means Committee Chairwoman Carolyn McGinn said the Senate
spending bill. Senators are nearing completion of the bill, but it’s unclear if the full Senate will debate the package before the April break. “We feel like we’re running out of time and that’s why we’ve included it in the 2012 bill,” said McGinn, a Sedgwick Republican. “We’re ready to move forward.” She said the Senate’s version takes care of the special education while helping Brownback balance both the 2011 and 2012 budgets. Democrats, in the minority in both chambers, said the governor’s actions are getting ahead of lawmakers. The issue is whether Brownback can claim he balanced the 2011 budget by shifting funds out of public schools and other agencies to shore up the books, and fund increase costs for social services.
Federal Reserve deal to help First State Bank and Trust By Shawn Linenberger email@example.com
TONGANOXIE — The Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, Mo., has signed an agreement with Tonganoxie Bankshares Inc., which owns First State Bank and Trust, in an effort to maintain the bank’s financial soundness. Through the agreement, the Federal Reserve requires approval of First State Bank and Trust before paying out dividends, as well as debt and stock redemptions. The agreement, released this week, was signed March 8. It requires that the local bank should not declare or pay any dividends without approval from the Reserve Bank. First State Bank and Trust also should not directly or indirectly take dividends or payments that represent a reduction in capital without the Federal
Reserve’s approval. Jilinda White, executive vice president for First State Bank, said “They’re not doing anything in the agreement we’re not already doing.” First State Bank has two locations in both Lawrence and Tonganoxie, as well as branches in Perry, Basehor and Kansas City, Kan. The group also has a branch in Clearwater, near Wichita, but sale of that branch will be final next week, White said. First State’s assets are nearly $300 million and would decrease to $250 million with the sale of the Clearwater branch to Emprise Bank. Other stipulations of the ag reement include not incurring, increasing or guaranteeing any debt without the Federal Reserve Bank’s consent, nor purchasing or redeeming any shares or stocks without the
Reserve’s written consent. In December, First State entered into a consent order with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. and the Kansas Office of the State Bank Commissioner. The latest agreement is aimed at ensuring the bank complies with the previous agreement. At the end of 2010, First State had $8.44 million in problem loans, just more than 4 percent of its $206 million in total loans. In 2010, the bank lost $4.7 million, which compares to $291,000 in 2009. Still, the bank has $22.5 million in equity capital and a $6.8 million provision for loan losses. White likened the provisional money to a savings account the bank has against potential losses, such as loan that can’t be repaid.

T O P E K A — A proposal to deregulate AT&T for basic phone service was opposed Wednesday by state regulators and consumer advocates. “There is only one thing this bill will do. It’s going to raise rates,” said David Springe, consumer counsel for the Citizens’ Utility Ratepayer Board. “If you pass it, pass it knowing that for the elderly and people who can least afford it, you just raised their rates,” Springe told the House Ener-
gy and Utilities Committee. Most phone services are already deregulated. But the cost of single-line and Lifeline, for low-income households, can only be increased each year by the amount of the increase in the Consumer Price Index. Senate Bill 72 would eliminate those protections. AT&T officials say that by removing the regulations, the company will be able to offer a broader array of services to those customers and that competition will keep costs reasonable.
Douglas County prosecutors have charged a 21-year-old Kansas City, Kan., woman in connection with a December crime spree in Lawrence that included an armed robbery. Ashley C. R.

Douglas County District Attorney Charles Branson said prosecutors have charged Johnson with one count of aggravated robbery, two counts of theft and one count of criminal use of a financial card. According to Lawrence police, the robbery charge is in connection with an incident the night of Dec. 28 when a 20-year-old Lawrence man said he was walking in the — Tonganoxie Mirror news editor 300 block of West 12th Street

Christine Aarnes, chief of telecommunications at the Kansas Corporation Commission, said that wasn’t the case. In other states, deregulation was followed by higher prices, she said. Springe argued there was no competition for single-line service to drive down costs. The Kansas chapter of AARP also opposes the bill. The proposal has passed in the Senate by a 32-7 vote.

Military begins dumping water on reactor By Eric Talmadge and Mari Yamaguchi Associated Press Writers
ZAO, JAPAN — Japanese military helicopters dumped loads of seawater onto a stricken nuclear reactor today, trying to avoid full meltdowns as plant operators said they were close to finishing a new power line that could restore cooling systems and ease the crisis. U.S. officials in Washington, meanwhile, warned that the Fukushima Dai-ichi plant in northeastern Japan may be on the verge of spewing more radioactive material because water was gone from a storage pool that keeps spent nuclear fuel rods from overheating. The troubles at several of the plant’s reactors were set off when last week’s earthquake and tsunami knocked out power and ruined backup generators needed for their cooling systems, adding a major nuclear crisis for Japan as it dealt with twin natural disasters that killed more than

JAPAN GROUND SELF-DEFENSE FORCE refuel a helicopter at its base in Sendai, Japan. 10,000 people and left hundreds of thousands homeless. A Japanese military CH-47 Chinook helicopter began dumping seawater on the damaged reactor of Unit 3 at the Fukushima complex at 9:48 a.m., said defense ministry spokeswoman Kazumi Toyama. The aircraft dumped at least four loads on
the reactor, though much of the water appeared to be dispersed in the wind. At least a dozen more loads were planned in the 40 minutes that each crew can operate before switching to limit radiation exposure, the ministry said. The dumping was intended both to help cool the reac-
tor and to replenish water in a pool holding spent fuel rods, Toyama said. The plant’s owner, Tokyo Electric Power Co., said earlier that the pool was nearly empty, which might cause the rods to overheat. The comments from U.S. officials indicated there were similar problems at another unit of the Dai-ichi complex. U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission Chairman Gregory Jaczko said at a congressional hearing in Washington that all the water was gone from a separate spent fuel pool at the plant’s Unit 4. Japanese officials expressed similar worries about that unit, but that it was impossible to be sure of its status. Emergency workers were forced to retreat from the plant Wednesday when radiation levels soared, losing precious time. They resumed work after radiation levels dropped, but much of the monitoring equipment in the plant is inoperable, complicating efforts to assess the situation.
“We are afraid that the water level at unit 4 is the lowest,” said Hikaru Kuroda, facilities management official at Tokyo Electric Power Co. But he added, “Because we cannot get near it, the only way to monitor the situation is visually from far away.” The storage pools need a constant source of cooling water. Even when removed from reactors, the rods retain radioactivity and must be cooled for months, possibly longer, to prevent them from posing a threat of meltdown. Japanese officials raised hopes of easing the crisis earlier today, saying that they may be close to bringing power back to the plant and restoring the reactors’ cooling systems. The new power line would revive electric-powered pumps, allowing the company to control the rising temperatures and pressure that have led to at least partial meltdowns in three reactors. The company is also trying to repair its existing disabled power line.

Tragic results In addition to the immediate tragedy unfolding in Japan, damage to a nuclear power plant there is likely to have a longlasting effect on future development of nuclear power around the globe.
he tragedy and consequences of the terrible earthquake and subsequent tsunami in Japan cannot be overstated. It will be years before the island nation will recover, and the effects of this natural disaster will be felt by billions of people around the globe. There is no way for anyone to adequately measure the current and eventual cost of this calamity. However, one of the costs of the twopronged disaster is likely to be major delays in the construction of new nuclear power plants here in the United States to help meet our nation’s ever-growing need for energy. The fear of a nuclear accident is the greatest and most powerful deterrent to the construction of more plants in the United States, and the Japan tragedy will be maximized by those who oppose building more plants. The fact is, however, nuclear power plants can be built with extreme safety features, and the situation in Japan is the result of “perfect storm” conditions that caused a breach and contamination. No one can say whether there ever would be another set of conditions that could cause a similar failure. What is known, however, is that some way must be found to meet this country’s ongoing energy needs. It is wrong and silly to think solar or wind power can provide the energy to keep this nation free from dependence on foreign oil. Nor will electric or battery-powered cars be the answer. Strict regulations are keeping this country from accessing huge deposits of oil. Some politicians who consider this issue to be critical to their political success also are putting up roadblocks even though they realize the eventual need to allow more exploration of drilling areas in offshore locations as well as in Alaska. Likewise, this country has huge deposits of coal, but President Obama’s energy and environmental policies will make it extremely difficult for any company to establish new coalfired power plants. He has said trying to meet his standards will surely bankrupt any such effort. Natural gas is a possibility that, so far, has gone undeveloped. Nuclear power can meet the demand, but getting approval for new plants will become even more challenging due to the situation in Japan. Hopefully, the decisions concerning the future of nuclear power in the United States will be handled in a sensible manner and not based solely on fear. What is best for the future of this country and its people? What will be the energy needs of this country 25 or 50 years from now, and how can these needs be met? What will be needed to continue to provide the quality of life in this country that made the United States a true world leader? Or are there politicians likely to use the energy situation to justify the federal government entering the picture to ration and control the amount of energy individuals and companies can use? The crisis in Japan is ugly, but it should not be used to handicap the nation from using modern technology, such as nuclear reactors, to provide clean, affordable energy.
Military planners have eyes on China NEWPORT, R.I. — Scholars at the Naval War College here probably nodded in vigorous agreement with a recent lecture delivered at another military institution 130 miles away. Speaking at West Point to leaders of tomorrow’s Army, Defense Secretary Robert Gates said “any future defense secretary who advises the president to again send a big American land army into Asia or into the Middle East or Africa should ‘have his head examined,’ as General MacArthur so delicately put it.” This underscored Gates’ point that “the most plausible, high-end scenarios for the U.S. military are primarily naval and air engagements — whether in Asia, the Persian Gulf, or elsewhere.” Here at this 127-year old college, where the American practice of war-gaming began in 1887, the faculty members are professional worriers, especially about Asia, meaning China. Its naval doctrines, procurements and deployments invite inferences about its geopolitical intentions. Faculty members were interested that when Libya descended into chaos, China sent a frigate through the Suez Canal to be in position to assist Chinese nationals in distress. This was the first time the People’s Republic had positioned a high-end combatant ship for a possible evacuation. From such scraps of evidence, scholars here try to solve a highstakes puzzle involving a decades-long process of design-
Whatever China’s navy becomes, some thoughtful people will be surprised.” ing and building ships: How should the U.S. Navy be configured for a world in which China’s maritime capabilities and intentions will be ... what? These scholars note that America has not always been good at predicting its next adversary. In Iraq and Afghanistan, soldiers have ruefully said, “This isn’t what we gamed.” But for 22 years before Pearl Harbor, war games successfully anticipated the nature of a war with Japan — from amphibious attacks to capture islands for bases, to floating dry docks. Before the gaming, the assumption of America’s battleship-centric Navy was that it would steam west and fight something like the Battle of Jutland, the World War I engagement of the British and German fleets. After the gaming and the war, Adm. Chester Nimitz, commander of the Pacific fleet and U.S. signatory at
Japan’s surrender on the battleship Missouri, said kamikaze attacks were the Pacific theater’s only major surprise. The Chinese, too, have studied World War II and, according to some here at the college, have concluded that Japan’s experience should be pertinent to China’s planning. Japan was defeated by sea and air blockades plus the threat of invasion. As one person here puts it, America assured its victory when it controlled the Luzon Strait, a choke point between the Philippines and Taiwan. China has no foreign bases, but myriad ocean-borne needs: It is ravenous for imported raw materials — oil, coal, minerals — and its economic dynamism is built on exports. It has huge domestic constituencies — oil refiners, shippers and shipbuilders, among others — utterly dependent on certainty in global transportation. Today, China is a free-rider on a global maritime order built upon a network of treaties enforced by the U.S. Navy. The Chinese frigate that came through Suez then entered the Gulf of Sidra, which Libya no longer claims to control. It does not because of President Reagan’s 1981 forceful insistence that the gulf is international water. The arrival of U.S. ships off Libya’s coast underscores the primacy of the Navy for projecting power. Mark Helprin of the Claremont Institute notes that

OLD HOME TOWN
From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Mar. 17, 1911: YEARS “‘If I were a prayAGO ing man, I would IN 1911 pray that the next Kansas legislature might be composed of more women than men,’ was the startling statement made by Chancellor Strong in his chapel talk this morning. … ‘I hope women’s suffrage carries and I shall support it strongly,’ continued the chancellor. ‘Perhaps women in the legislature would realize the importance of the care of our educational institutions. If there had been some women in the legislature this year, perhaps there would have been less sacrifice of high education for the gratification of political ambition.’ His position on the suffrage question came as a distinct surprise to the students, and occasioned a mild sensation.” — Compiled by Sarah St. John

“40 percent of the world’s population lives within range of modern naval gunfire, and more than two-thirds within easy reach of carrier aircraft.” Whatever China’s navy becomes, some thoughtful people will be surprised. What they do here is scholarship, not intelligence — they devour the flood of Chinese military publications. And the scholars differ about the most fundamental question, which is: Will China, for the next three to five decades, concentrate on economic growth — on prospering from globalization’s unimpeded flow of raw materials, goods and services — and be content to let America bear the burden of policing this? The answer will be yes — if China makes a purely economic calculation. But nations usually have deeper and stronger motivations. This is particularly true of ascendant nations feeling their oats and spurred by long memories of impotence and humiliations. Russia is still at sea with submarines carrying ballistic missiles. But these, like renewed Russian air patrols that echo Cold War practices, are probably primarily psychotherapy for Russian leaders eager for the world’s respect. China’s naval purposes, the subject of a subsequent column, are more interesting and potentially more ominous.
Grinstead’s departure is a sad reflection of their own lack of compassion, openness and respect of not only Midge, but of the many community members who have been devoted to the success and quality of the shelter over the years. In my 38 years in Lawrence, I have witnessed the transition of the Lawrence Humane Society, and the improvements and growth under Midge Grinstead’s leadership have never been matched. In the times that I have volunteered for shelter events, it was Midge who was always welcoming and appreciative, which was not matched by the board members. For all of Midge’s success, devotion and true compassion, she deserves more than a measly announcement e-mailed to shelter members and published in the Journal-World. The recent series of events involving the entrenched board of directors’ actions toward Midge Grinstead needs to be explained and outed. Under leadership such as this, who can feel optimistic about the shelter’s future? Kathleen Draskovich, Lawrence

LMH receives largest gift in its history Lawrence Memorial Hospital Endowment Association received a $1.3 million gift last month — the largest in its history. Kathy Clausing-Willis, vice president and chief development officer, made an announcement during Wednesday’s board meeting. The gift was from the Karl and Una Kreider charitable remainder trusts. The value of the trusts was donated to LMH when the Kreiders’ last surviving child, Margaret Larsen, died this winter. LMH Endowment first learned about the gift in 1994 when Una died. Karl died in 1983. At that time, LMH named its new rehabilitation center in their honor. Their gift made it possible for LMH to expand its rehabilitation services to include occupational and speech therapy. Since the Kreider Rehabilitation Center opened 15 years ago, the number of therapy service hours provided has increased 37 percent. Una and Karl were Lawrence High School graduates. They lived in Lawrence for more than 60 years and had two children.

KANSAS UNIVERSITY COACH BILL SELF SPEAKS with media members after arriving at the Renaissance Hotel in Tulsa, Okla.
TULSA, OKLA. — Travis Releford and Josh Selby carried Cheddar’s Casual Cafe to-go boxes off Kansas University’s big, black charter bus into the Renaissance Hotel shortly after 9 p.m. on Wednesday. The two Jayhawk basketball players obviously enjoyed KU’s first team meal in T-Town, site of Friday’s 5:50 p.m. NCAA Tournament game against Boston University. “Well, we had an assortment of things: ribeye, shrimp and some

One topic of conversation had to be President Obama picking KU to win the NCAA Tournament. He believes the Jayhawks will down Ohio State in the national championship game. “Didn’t he do that last year,

CAROLYN DAVIS RISES FOR TWO POINTS in the second half against Wichita State in the first round of the WNIT. Davis dominated the post, scoring 33 points in KU’s 79-58 throttling of the Shockers on Wednesday in Allen Fieldhouse.

Despite not making the NCAA Tournament, Kansas University women’s basketball coach Bonnie Henrickson stresses that her team isn’t trying to prove itself in the Women’s National Invitation Tournament. “What good’s that gonna do us?” Henrickson said. Instead, the Jayhawks just want to keep winning games like they did Wednesday night, when they cruised to a 79-58 victory against Wichita State in Allen Fieldhouse. Sophomore Carolyn Davis led the way with 33 points on 14-of15 shooting, 7-of-7 in the first half. It was the fourth time Davis has scored 30 or more points in a game this season. The Jayhawks shot 70.8 percent in the first half, open- KANSAS IN ing a 15-point WNIT lead at halftime.

She wasn’t kidding. Davis and her teammates often found themselves unguarded in the paint in the first half. Davis wasn’t able to finish a perfect night from the field, but has a true scorer’s mentality: She said she didn’t remember the lone miss. Henrickson said she thought that Wichita State’s unfamiliarity with Kansas’ offense after just one day of preparation helped. The Jayhawks (21-12) were able to get primary looks that were taken away a lot during Big 12 play. Henrickson also said her players shouldn’t worry about missing the NCAA Tournament and should focus on winning the next game. “I don’t care which one you’re playing,” Henrickson said. “If you’re still playing this time of the year, you’re a good basketball team. And I think our kids have embraced that.” Kansas sophomore Monica Engelman said the team is certainly taking the tournament seriously. “It’s really important to us,” Engelman said. “Regardless of whatever you’re playing for, it’s a

ABOVE, IN THE TOP LEFT PHOTO WITH TYREL REED (MIDDLE RIGHT) IS his mother Debbie (left), his sister Lacie (middle left) and his father Stacy. Reed’s hometown of Burlington was vital in shaping the person and player he has come to be as a senior on Kansas University’s men’s basketball team. The above photos were taken in 2004, when Burlington won the Class 3A state title. Reed was a freshman.
Reed’s prep career filled with fond memories, admiration By Jesse Newell email@example.com
BURLINGTON — The temperature is in the 60s, and an American flag snaps in the wind in front of the small-town high school on Cross Street. Follow the four-toed, redpainted paw tracks, and you’ve made it to the front doors of Burlington High School — and also to the front doors of Kansas University senior guard Tyrel Reed’s past. Stacy Reed greets you with a smile and handshake, his kind eyes leaving you unprepared for the
deep voice that coached Tyrel through high school. Stacy, whose son will begin his final NCAA Tournament appearance when KU faces Boston on Friday, is ready to show you around Tyrel’s old school. Take a left at the office, then a right at the commons area, and your journey through his son’s past begins.

Then-freshman Tyrel Reed, sitting fourth from the right on the front row, is wearing a different jersey than his teammates. His white, No. 41 jersey has black trim on the neckline — a junior varsity uniform. After playing so well with the jersey early in the year, he told the coaches he didn’t want to switch. To the left, a girls’ P.E. class walks counter-clockwise around the gym, and one of the few reminders of Tyrel’s record-breaking senior year is on the far wall: a white banner honoring Tyrel as Kansas’ 2006-07 Gatorade Player of the Year.
Above hangs the Wildcats’ scoring records. Tyrel’s 1,710 career points is first in the school’s history, while his 26.4-point scoring average his senior year is second all-time. It could have been more if Stacy 1 let Tyrel play more than 2 ⁄2 quarters a game in blowouts his senior season. Back in the commons area, a smaller board displays other records — one of which Stacy says might be more impressive than any in the gym. Though Tyrel won a state title in Please see REED, page 4B
March Madness for K-State, Mizzou begins today TUCSON, ARIZ. (AP) — With most of its team coming back from last year’s NCAA regional finals run, Kansas State built up big expectations in the Little Apple. A midseason funk threatened to ruin it all. A little tweak of the offense, a kick in the backside from coach
Frank Martin and some re-found conf idence, the Wildcats regained their mojo and are ready for a run through the bracket. Back in the polls at No. 21 after a tilt-a-whirl season, Kansas State opens (22-10) the NCAA Tournament as a No. 5 seed
against 12th-seeded Utah State (30-3) tonight in the Southeast Regional in Tucson, Ariz. Tipoff is set for 8:57 p.m. “We’re starting to gel at the perfect time where we have to go on a streak,” Kansas State senior forward Curtis Kelly said Wednesday. “That streak could

Gillispie interviews with TTech LUBBOCK, TEXAS — Texas Tech athletic director Kirby Hocutt interviewed former Kentucky basketball coach Billy Gillispie in Florida on Wednesday. Red Raiders spokesman Blayne Beal said Hocutt, who took over the program this month, met with Gillispie in Palm Beach. No announcement on who will succeed Pat Knight will be made until next week, Beal said.

Homers help Royals rip Reds GOODYEAR , A RIZ . (AP) — Kila Ka’aihue and Alcides Escobar hit two-run home runs, and Alex Gordon doubled for his fourth straight game with an extra-base hit in Kansas City’s 5-3 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Wednesday night.
Kanas City starter Mike Montgomery gave up one run with two hits and a walk. He struck out three in four innings. Bronson Arroyo pitched five innings. He allowed three runs on seven hits, including a long
two-run home run by Ka’aihue. He struck out three. Arroyo had limited activity the last four days because of illness. Escobar’s home run came off Jose Arrendondo, who is coming back from elbow surgery after missing the 2010 season.

Wichita State went 11-of-26 from threepoint range, while Nebraska was just 2-for18. “When you get outscored by 27 from the three-point line, you’re not going to win many games,” Huskers coach Doc Sadler said. Playing without injured center Andre Almeida, Nebraska missed its first seven shots and trailed 10-0. “We didn’t give them any pressure from the get go,” Sadler said.

Jayhawks attend pro day ————
Thorson shows off agility, power … and beard By Matt Tait email@example.com
If it was good enough for Kerry Meier, it’s good enough for Brad Thorson. That was the thought behind the lumberjack beard Thorson grew during his training for Kansas University’s football pro timing day, which took place Wednesday at the Anderson Family Football Complex and Memorial Stadium. Asked if he thought the beard would help his NFL Draft stock, Thorson was honest about the origin of his new look. “I don’t know. Kerry had one last year,” he said, referring to Meier, who was drafted in the fifth round of the 2010 NFL Draft by Atlanta. “When somebody tells me, ‘You’re done playing football,’ I’m gonna have to shave up, get a real haircut and go work in the real world. I won’t go into a camp with this beard, but it was a fun training thing, and I like being noticeable. People don’t miss a beard like this.”
The nine pro scouts on hand Wednesday — from Atlanta, Jacksonville, Kansas City, Green Bay, New England, Philadelphia, Indianapolis, Carolina and New Orleans — also had a hard time missing Thorson’s performance. In addition to demonstrating decent speed for an offensive lineman, Thorson weighed in above the magic 300-pound mark and showed good agility and work ethic throughout the event. “They had me do sets at both tackles and both guards, and I felt fluid there,” Thorson said. “I’ve got the versatility, and I could add depth to a roster (because) I’m a single guy who could play a couple positions. This is kind of a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. So I hope my showing was at least good enough, and now it’s kind of a wait-andsee game.” Thorson was one of 10 Jayhawks measured for everything from height, weight and hand size to strength, vertical jump and speed in the 40-yard dash.
While the Jayhawks being worked out were in the spotlight, several other KU players, past and present, offered support. At least a dozen current Jayhawks showed up, and former Jayhawks Darrell Stuckey, Mike Rivera, Dexton Fields, Jake Sharp and Marcus Henry also returned to Memorial Stadium to check out KU’s latest crop of NFL hopefuls. In addition to the support of their peers, nearly all of the KU coaches peeked in at one point, each well aware of what was on the line. “I think it’s very important,” defensive coordinator Carl Torbush said. “The opportunity for these guys to get signed or not get signed is based on what they do today.” Wide receiver Johnathan Wilson was one of the day’s top performers. Wilson had the highest vertical jump (35.5 inches) and the longest broad jump (10 feet, 2 inches). He also ran his 40 in the 4.5-second range. “I feel pretty good about everything I did,” Wilson said. “I feel like my training really paid off.”
Not far behind Wilson was cornerback Chris Harris, who was clocked on one watch at 4.35 seconds in the 40 and delivered numbers near Wilson’s in the other categories — a 34-inch vertical and a 101 broad jump. One of the more entertaining moments came during position drills, when Harris was working his ball skills and suddenly saw two passes flying his way. “They weren’t supposed to do that,” Harris said. “I saw both of them, and I thought, ‘Should I catch both and try to look good or just catch the one at its highest point?’ I decided to just go for the high one.” Linebackers Justin Springer (26) and Drew Dudley (23) recorded the highest number of reps in the 225-pound bench press. “I’m definitely glad we got some good results,” Harris said. “We’ve all been working hard for seven, eight weeks, and that hard work paid off today. Hopefully, I opened some eyes. I think we all did.”

And there are a lot of talented teams in it.”

Reed CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1B
the long jump and holds the school record in the 400meter dash, his best mark might be in the basketball decathlon — a series of 10, one-minute shooting drills created by Stacy to rate a player’s ability at the beginning of each high school season. Three of the drills included off-hand layups, rapid-fire free throws and three-pointers. Tyrel — named after a character in Louis L’Amour’s book, “The Daybreakers,” one of the first long books Stacy read as a child — has the top two decathlon scores ever at the school. His score during his senior year was so high that Stacy had to review what happened. In a high-speed, pressure situation, Tyrel had missed fewer than 20 shots. And that’s after he’d put up roughly 300 during the 10minute time span.
Reed the artist At the end of the commons area, take a right, and you make it to Room 136. Doug Stewart steps out of class to talk about one of his favorite students in industrial arts. “He’s just one of those special kids,” Stewart says. Stewart still remembers times he’d come to the school on a quiet weekend, later hearing noise when he walked toward the gym. There he’d see Tyrel, dribbling between strategicallyplaced chairs on the court while making his way through his shooting routine. When Tyrel wasn’t on a basketball court, he loved woodworking. An entertainment center he made still frames his parents’ TV in their living room, while a
wooden bar — so big that it had to be removed from the high school in three pieces — was a gift to Stacy that’s still displayed proudly in his basement. Tyrel also had another favorite inspiration when it came to woodworking. He created a wooden Jayhawk that he gave to his sister, Lacie, and also constructed a long coffee table that now displays many of his championship rings and trophies in his parents’ living room. His mother, Debbie, helped him paint it. The table — about three feet long — is a likeness of James Naismith Court at Allen Fieldhouse.
Country-wide tour Continue down the hall, and you make it to Room 134, where home ec teacher Tammy Hanson has a story about Tyrel. Hanson, wearing a denim jacket over a red shirt with “Jayhawks” spelled out in sequins, works with two boys at the high school that came from foster homes. While in junior high, the two boys weren’t the most popular, and they would sometimes get teased at the local rec center. That is, until the best high school player in the city, Tyrel Reed, overheard what was going on and made sure the group knew that the bullying wasn’t going to be tolerated. Tyrel and the two boys later became friends. Following a right at the hallway and then a left, you make your way to the black sign with white lettering: “Room 124 Mr. Reed.” Above his desk, all sorts of photos are scattered across the blue wall: Tyrel running during the state track meet; Tyrel on a recruiting visit to KU; photos of the family together; a shot of Tyrel on national signing day. Nearby hangs a map of the United States, which each
year draws puzzled looks from students, considering Stacy teaches American history and government. “I thought I’d throw in some geography,” Stacy says with a laugh. “It doesn’t really fit into World War II, but it’s one of those things.” The map is covered with pushpins. The locations marked are each of the places that Stacy has been to watch basketball games over the last few years, whether to watch his son, Tyrel, or his good friend, former KU assistant Ben Miller — now the head coach at Div. II UNC Pembroke. The blue pushpins indicate nonconference games; the red ones, Big 12 games; the white ones, NCAA Tournament games; and the clear ones, other Div. I games. There are more than 35 pushpins already and still room for one more. Just this week, Stacy added a white pushpin to Tulsa, Okla., where the Jayhawks will open the NCAA Tournament against Boston. Houston, the site of this year’s Final Four, remains as an unmarked location.
Off-the-charts commitment Take a right out of Stacy’s room, then a left down the hallway, and you come to Room 144, the library. Tony Furse doubles as the school’s librarian and a high school sports radio broadcaster on 97.7 FM, The Dawg. Furse can still rattle off, with impressive detail, an important moment of the 2004 state championship game, when, with time winding down in the third quarter against Minneapolis, Tyrel set his feet from some 35 feet away — straight on — and heaved a shot. When Tyrel swished it, Furse — who likes to avoid clichés — couldn’t help himself. “Well, folks,” he broadcast-
ed over the radio, “Tyrel Reed is not a freshman anymore.” Two rights out of the library, and you’ve made it back to the front entrance, where Burlington High School principal Jim Kuhn welcomes you into his office, along with athletic director Dallas Scothorn. Kuhn, whose son, Taylor, has been in Tyrel’s class since junior high, essentially watched Tyrel grow up during fishing and camping trips, afternoons spent at the golf course and countless basketball games — something Kuhn almost felt spoiled by over the years. “If he scored 26 or 28, it was like, ‘Well, he always scores,’” Kuhn says. “That’s what he’s been doing since he’s a seventh-grader.” Scothorn was there during many of the open gyms at 6 a.m., when Tyrel would shoot around for college coaches, who weren’t allowed to speak to him because of NCAA rules. Barry Hinson, a current KU assistant who was head coach at Missouri State at the time, was one of the attendees, along with then-Kansas State coach Bob Huggins and Missouri coach Mike Anderson. The workouts were intense, too, as Tyrel would set up his chairs around the gym before going full-speed through his shooting drills. Scothorn didn’t remember Tyrel missing an early-morning shooting session. “I’ve never seen another kid in my 31 years with that kind of commitment,” he says. Scothorn always was just as impressed, though, by Tyrel away from the court. No one in his class seemed to have animosity toward him. When Tyrel grew in fame his later high school years, he always made the time to sign autographs for children. The A.D., who lives next door to the Reeds, still sees the same from Tyrel today.
L AWRENCE J OURNAL -WORLD
Whenever Tyrel’s car appears in front of his house, Scothorn notices all the neighborhood kids gather in the Reeds’ driveway to shoot hoops on the family’s rim. Sure enough, a little while later, Scothorn will see that Tyrel is outside, shooting alongside his young fans.
Achieving his goals Just across from the library, you come to Room 120, where English teacher Devra Parker has pulled out four folders: two yellow, one green and one blue. Parker has saved many of Tyrel’s papers from her Comp. I, II and Intro to Literature classes. Inside you f ind Tyrel’s résumé, dated Nov. 7, 2006, where accomplishments include a 4.0 grade-point average, the No. 1 academic rank in a class of 64 and Emporia Gazette Basketball Player of the Year. His objective on the résumé: “To further pursue a post-secondary education while playing Division I basketball.” “I’d say he did that,” Parker says with a smile. In another paper dated Sept. 11, 2006, Tyrel thanks his mother, sister and father for helping him become the person he is. He says Stacy “has been a father first, teacher second and coach third all of my years.” Parker still remembers the day in high school when Tyrel signed with KU, as he would have to leave early from her class to attend the ceremony. Parker had figured he might just not attend the class at all. Not only did Tyrel show up, he was able to earn a “Participation Dollar” — a reward in Parker’s class for contributing positively — before he left to sign that day. “He’s reaping what he’s sown,” Parker says. “He deserves all the accolades he’s gotten.”
Jaydreamin’ Reed Stacy hops in the passenger seat of your car and guides you two blocks from the high school to his house on Rim Rock Court. In the driveway, the black three-point line he painted is still there, along with a rainweathered orange rim. Stacy heads downstairs to his bar, pulling out the memorabilia he’s gathered over the years. He takes out the Dasani water bottle Tyrel threw to his mother right after the 2008 NCAA title game and also a ticket stub he had Charles Barkley sign during a game at Sprint Center in Kansas City, Mo. There are two frames downstairs that are most dear to Stacy, though. One holds a blue national championship T-shirt, with each player on the team signing over his jersey number. All the coaches and other members of KU’s staff have scribbled their signatures across the shirt as well. The other frame is just to the left, and Stacy calls it his pride and joy. For his birthday in December, during Tyrel’s first year at KU, Debbie surprised Stacy with a large print of “Jaydreamin’.” In the famous lithograph print, a young boy sits on a basketball while staring up at Allen Fieldhouse in the distance. Stacy takes a second to look at the painting before speaking. “My kid,” he says, his voice slowing, “is living the Jaydream.” Just above the boy in the photo, a bit to the right, is an extra touch not found on any other Jaydreamin’ print. In black lettering, the signature “Tyrel Reed” appears in black marker — right there on the green grass between the young boy and Allen Fieldhouse.

too?” Self said. Indeed, Obama picked the Jayhawks to win it all in 2010 after correctly picking North Carolina in 2009. “We’re going to prove him right this year, at least try to. I don’t put much stock in that stuff. I hope he turns out to be a very wise man,” Self added. The Jayhawks are to hold an open practice from 4:25 p.m. to 5:05 p.m. today in BOK Center in downtown Tulsa, site of Friday and Sunday secondand third-round games. Self knows the area well. He coached Oral Roberts from 1994 to ’97 and Tulsa from 1998 to 2000. “Of course we had a great time in our seven years here,” Self said. “We have a lot of friends around, ex-players. I’m happy to be back. I’m happy to bring my team back. It’s been a goal every year to position yourself to play close
LANGFORD AGREES TO EXTENSION Former Kansas University basketball guard Keith Langford agreed to a four-year extension on his contract with BC Khimky Moscow, a professional basketball team in Russia, according to www.worldbasket.com as well as eurobasket.com. Langford, who joined the Russian team two summers ago and has been making more than to home in the f irst two rounds. This is the best situation for us. Oklahoma hasn’t been good ... at least Oklahoma City hasn’t been good to us in the postseason,” added Self, whose Jayhawks lost to Northern Iowa in the second round last year and Bucknell in the first round in ’05 in OKC’s Ford Center. “We need to change that this weekend,” he added. Oral Roberts was the school that gave Self his first head-coaching job. He had records of 6-21, 10-17, 18-9 and 21-7 before moving on to
$1 million a year, now will be making an average of $2.3 million a year, the website reports. Langford will become one of the highest-paid players overseas.

Tulsa, where his teams went 19-12, 23-10 and 32-5. “I don’t think about the 18 losses in a row that often (in first year at ORU) until you guys remind me of it, but those were great years,” Self said. “We ended up winning 31 of our last 38 there, which was a great accomplishment. Going to Tulsa and having the great team that went to the Elite Eight (2000) ... in all honesty should have been in the Final Four. Those were great times and great memories and everything.

humor because you see things like this happen periodically,” Self said of all the Illinois coaches here. “We’ve stayed away from Illinois (in NCAAs) for seven years. The law of averages has to catch up sooner or later. UNLV has been a team in our bracket three of the last four years. I don’t think it’s an easy draw. “Of course there are no easy draws. We have to worry about the first game. Certainly we are not playing a No. 16 seed. It’s a little bit different this year. We are playing a 15 seed by every standard every other year. There are six teams (this year) on the 16 line. Those four teams are playing play-in games, so naturally BU would have been a 15 seed last year. I told our guys 15 seeds have beaten one seeds before. Our guys have to be ready for that. “Boston is fast, wellcoached and really guard. Their defensive stats are better than ours. We know we have to play well.”

They expect to win the games they play, regardless of who the opponent is.” Utah State is looking for any kind of win in the NCAA Tournament. The Aggies have been regulars in the bracket, reaching the NCAA Tournament eight of the past 12 years, including three straight. They just can’t seem to win when they get there, losing six straight and 14 of 15 since 1971.
Missouri to take on Cincy WASHINGTON — On the day before Cincinnati’s f irst NCAA Tournament game in six years, Sean Kilpatrick was in the locker room putting on a show worthy of Saturday night at the improv. The red-shirt freshman was doing impersonations of teammates and coaches, with such spot-on hilarity that his fellow players were doubled over in uncontrollable laughter. Some of the biggest guffaws came when he began mimicking coach Mick Cronin, strutting up and down
an imaginary sideline and gesturing with hands and hips. “Listen! Do me a favor!” Kilpatrick screamed into the face of senior Larry Davis. “You don’t like it? Get OOOOOOOOOUT!” It was definitely one of the most entertaining open-tothe-media locker room sessions in NCAA Tournament history, and it helped proved a point Cronin made a few minutes earlier when asked if he was concerned his players were be happy simply to be here. “They’re happy to be everywhere,” Cronin said. “I have one of the funniest teams on earth. We could win a talent show, for sure.” The sixth-seeded Bearcats (25-8) open play approximately 8:50 tonight against 11th-seeded Missouri (23-10). The game should be quite a matchup, pitting Missouri’s furious pace and pressure against a stingy Cincinnati defense that allowed a Big East-low 59. 2 points per game.

State, the Wildcats were 12-3 headed into the Big 12, looking to give rival Kansas a run for the conference title. Instead, Kansas State ran up five losses in its first seven Big 12 games, making a return trip to the NCAA Tournament look like a pipe dream. Then Martin saw a light at the end of the, uh, pipe. Dissatisfied with the way his team was scoring, particularly out of the post, Martin pulled off a midseason alteration of Kansas State’s offense, spreading it out to give his players — particularly senior star Jacob Pullen — more room to operate. Even in a loss to Colorado on Feb. 12, Martin could see the move was working, verified by the Wildcats’ thrashing of top-ranked Kansas two days later. Kansas State ended up winning its next five games before losing to Colorado in the Big 12 tournament, its conf idence and place in the NCAA Tournament restored. “They did a really good job as a coaching staff to implement that in the middle of the season,” Utah State coach Stew Morrill said. “That’s not easy to do, and that’s taking a big chance when you do that, that it might not work. It’s worked for them.” The tough part is that the NCAA Tournament selection committee didn’t do the Wildcats any favors in the bracket. Utah State, led by six seniors, rolled through the regular season to win the WAC by five games and followed that with the conference tournament title. The Aggies are tenacious, disciplined and multidimensional. They have one of the country’s best — and most patient — post players in WAC player of the year Tai Wesley, steady-and-heady point guard Brockeith Pane and plenty of experience with just three underclassmen on the roster. In other words, they’re exactly the kind of team bracket prognosticators look for when trying to predict a No. 12 seed bumping off a 5. “They’ve got grown men,” Martin said. “They’re old. They’ve been through it. They understand. They’ve got a

Dear Annie: I am 18 years old, get good grades in college, stay out of trouble and am a good daughter. I recently got a small tattoo. I live at home and have not yet told my father about it. He has double standards when it comes to my brother and me. My brother is three years older and has a large tattoo.

CBS pre-empts its dependable and popular Thursday-night series to present prime-time coverage of the NCAA Basketball Tournament (6 p.m. and 8:30 p.m., CBS, time approximate). No matter who wins tonight’s NCAA games, “American Idol” (7 p.m., Fox) will be the most-watched program of the night. Barring some tear-stained reprieve, a second contestant will be sent home. In tonight’s “Parks and Recreation” (7:30 p.m., NBC), the often awkward and sporadically amusing cartoon-like comedy lampoons the news media’s obsession with fear-mongering and superstition. Leslie (Amy Poehler) has staked her reputation and the fate of her entire department on the success of the revival of the town’s Harvest Festival. Rather than report on the fun and games with a pleasant puff piece, an embittered local reporter builds up the rumor of a “curse” placed on the festival by a local Indian tribe because the happy event will take place on an ancient burial ground. The show revels in tabloid media excess, with a local station even showing a “recreation” of evil spirits attacking Leslie, as rendered by really cheap-looking computer animation. ● Speaking of tabloid media and superstition, “Destination Truth” (6 p.m., Syfy) presents the series’ first live episode covering a St. Patrick’s Day-themed search for the so-called Banshee Ghost in County Carlow, Ireland. According to the network press release, (that begins with the sure-fire line, “According to legend ... ”) a banshee is a female specter who lets out a wail around a house the night before one unlikely resident is slated to die. OK, I’m a skeptic, but I may gain an inkling of faith in this 100proof blarney if I read that “Destination Truth” gets canceled tomorrow. ● “Manhunter: Fugitive Task Force” (9 p.m., A&E) returns for a third season of 23 half-hour episodes. Each installment follows a New York based crew as they search for a wanted criminal. First up: the challenge of finding the man who raped a very young victim. ● What do you do when you’re the premiere sports network and your core audience is watching basketball on CBS? You show “Winter X Games Europe” (7 p.m., ESPN).
Tonight’s other highlights ● Spend St. Patrick’s Day with a wee marathon of corny old movies, from “My Wild Irish Rose” (5 a.m., TCM) to “The Daughter of Rosie O’Grady” (5 p.m.). ● Michael and Holly’s public affection make many uneasy on “The Office” (8 p.m., NBC). ● A viral outbreak looms on “Bones” (8 p.m., Fox). ● Reality camera lingers on the set on “30 Rock” (9 p.m., NBC). ● A prenup gets messy on “Fairly Legal” (9 p.m., USA). Cult choice Mainstream Hollywood’s efforts to capture the youth audience of films like “Easy Rider” resulted in spate of “relevant” stinkers, including “R.P.M.” (3:45 a.m., TCM), a 1970 tale of campus rebellion directed by Stanley Kramer and starring Anthony Quinn and Ann-Margret.

JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS For Thursday, March 17: This year, passions are high and sarcasm could run rampant. Be sensitive to new possibilities that come through partners and associates. If you are single, you meet people with ease. You don't need to jump into a relationship. If you are attached, enjoy the back-and-forth mental exchanges. Virgo often challenges your thought process. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You'll Have: 5Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult Aries (March 21-April 19) ★★★★★ Your playfulness merges with your imagination. How can anyone hold you back? Especially if you were born Irish. Tonight: It is obvious, isn't it? Paint the city green. Taurus (April 20-May 20) ★★★ You are trying to keep the lid on a personal issue. The problem is, a friend might be working against you, not intentionally, and the lid will blow. Tonight: Be Irish at home. Gemini (May 21-June 20) ★★★★★ You have a way or style about you that attracts many people, and most certainly at this moment. If you can get out of work early, by all means,

do. Tonight: Having fun and not going far. Cancer (June 21-July 22) ★★★ Your sensitivity is needed when dealing with a child or loved one. People don't realize how tuned in you are, which is why you are moody more times than not. Tonight: Treat yourself. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) ★★★★ Someone around you could be vested in maintaining a haze around him- or herself. Wait until you have a more reality-bound type of perspective. Tonight: Don't kid yourself about a relationship. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) ★★★ Know when to step back and allow others to express their thoughts and ideas. Could you be ever so slightly overwhelmed? Tonight: If Irish, celebrate at home. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) ★★★★★ Your ability to adjust and make the best of difficult situations emerges. A certain element of pie-in-the-sky thinking surrounds you and those you care about. Tonight: Where people are wearing green! Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) ★★★ Whether you like it or not, you are in the
limelight. Your ability to understand others and get to the bottom on an issue emerges. Tonight: Celebrating, whether you are Irish or not. Sagittarius (Nov. 22Dec. 21) ★★★★★ Reach out for those at a distance. You also might need to discuss an important matter with an expert or someone who often plays the role of devil's advocate. Tonight: Follow the music. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) ★★★★ Relate to others directly, knowing full well what the end results could be. Understanding evolves to a new level as a result. Tonight: Dinner for two. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) ★★★★★ Defer to others. Though you might not be sure they have the right path, you need to find out. Remain supportive rather than give them your opinion. Tonight: Relax. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) ★★★★ You might be left holding the bag today as others seem to stomp out of work, not quite completing this or that. Tonight: Join a co-worker. — The astrological forecast should be read for entertainment only.

Dear Annie: My husband and I have been married for more than 20 years. He is a very good-looking man. His co-workers are mostly women. Yes, I am jealous, and I have good reason to be. When we married, he was loving, caring and gave me lots of attention. My whole life changed due to health problems. Now, I barely get a kiss as he leaves for work. Even though my health has improved, he stopped sleeping in our bedroom several years ago and hasn’t returned. He thinks coming home, eating what I cook and retiring to the recliner is sufficient attention. Also, he told me the company arranged for him and a female employee to have a meeting once a week in his office. This bothered me because she called his cell phone in the evening. This went on for several months until I confronted him. He accused me of being jealous. What should I do? Stay here and be a dishrag? Or move on with my life? He refuses to go for counseling or see a pastor. — Going Mad
