Higher ed officials: Cuts would be ruinous

A better home for the homeless

The shelter doubled in size after relocating Dec. 29 to southeast Lawrence, near the Douglas County Jail. The space increased from 7,700 square feet to 15,000, in a move organizers say was years in the making. The $3.2 million facility also has a 10,000-square-foot job-

TOPEKA — Higher education officials on Monday said a proposed cap on salaries and wages and a 4 percent budget cut would hurt research and the Kansas economy, and increase student tuition. “You’re signaling to the marketplace that the state does not see higher education as an engine of economic development, innovation and discovery,” said Steve Warren, vice chancellor for research and graduate studies at Kansas University. Warren said the proposed cuts have made top faculty vulnerable to “poaching” from institutions in other states because the signal has been sent that “Kansas is not a stable environment” for researchers. Representatives of universities, community colleges and technical colleges spoke to the House Education Budget Committee about the proposed state budget that the House will be debating today. That budget, pushed by Republican leaders in the House, includes a 4 percent, or $29.2 million, budget cut to universities, and a wage and salary cap for state government agencies, including higher education. That cap would cost higher education another $18.1 million, according to the Kansas Board of Regents. University leaders said freezing salaries, some of which are funded in part with federal and private grants, would devastate efforts to work with businesses and industry

Residents of community shelter like space, amenities of new location By Giles Bruce gbruce@ljworld.com

A few months ago, Robert Marshall and his family — a son, fiancee and her daughter — slept on mats on the floor of the Lawrence Community Shelter, commingling with single residents of

different ages and genders. One day last week, however, Marshall watched TV while his fiancee hung out in a private bedroom and Robert Jr., who turns 7 today, stood surrounded by kids his own age, playing with toys. Marshall was at the new Lawrence Community Shelter, 3701 Franklin Park Circle,

Cuts CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1A

to expand research. Wichita State University President John Bardo said the cap would halt negotiations between the school and major businesses and the federal government on several research initiatives that have the potential to bring hundreds of engineers and support staff to Kansas. “This salary cap will make that impossible for us,” Bardo said. Larry Gould, provost and chief academic officer at Fort Hays State University, said, “That 4-percent cut hits us right in the gut in regard to our ability to keep tuition down.” Higher education officials reminded legislators the system has seen cuts of 15 percent in state funding over the past five years. They said a 4 percent cut would reduce the number

of classes offered, increase class size and end some technical course offerings. Gov. Sam Brownback proposed a flat budget for higher education with some specific enhancements, but both the House and Senate budget-writing committees have made cuts. Rep. Gene Suellentrop, R-Wichita and vice chair of the House Appropriations Committee, proposed the wage and salary cap. He sat through the hearing Monday, and afterward said legislators need more information from the schools. “As the No. 2 person on the (Appropriations) committee, responsible for the taxpayers’ dollars in the state of Kansas, I’ve got to be concerned about: Are these programs things that are actually going to materialize? Are they going to grow the number of jobs? Are they going to get us return on investment that we are being told that they might?”

matchup with Michigan, Kansas must first defeat Western Kentucky — not a problem — and then the winner of Villanova vs. North Carolina. The Tar Heels head into the tournament on an 8-2 roll with the only losses coming to a pair of No. 2 seeds, Miami and Duke. Complaints from KU backers about their team’s path to the Elite Eight have merit, but suspicions that the NCAA intentionally put Kansas coach Bill Self and his predecessor, Roy Williams, in each other’s path do not. A potential third meeting in six years between the coaches ranks as no better than the third-best story line Kansas could have drawn from the 8/9 seeding line, which was where Missouri, in the Midwest, and Wichita State, in the West, landed. The Self-Williams storyline can’t compare with a Border War reunion one year after “the last game ever” between the bitter rivals. And if the selection committee wanted to get into the business of matches made in TV heaven, it could have put Wichita State in Kansas City and interviewed the Kansas legislators who want to pass a law forcing the Jayhawks and Shockers to play each other. Better yet, they could have put Wichita State against Missouri, ensuring major drama. That’s not how it works. And despite what you might have heard on your television, here’s how else it doesn’t work: When bracketing, the committee no longer follows what is known as an “S” curve, wherein the top seed on a line faces the worst seed on the next line and the worst seed on a line faces the best on the next line. It used to work that way. Now, one-by-one, the committee places a team on the bracket, starting with No. 1 and working backward, and the school that is, so to speak, the batter up is sent to its most geographically friendly position. When the mouse is put over a site, the mileage from that school pops onto the screen on the wall, but the decision isn’t purely based on miles. For example, Lawrence is 527 miles from Indianapolis and 526 miles from Arlington, Texas, a virtual tie. Indy is in Big Ten country, Arlington in Big 12 country, where Kansas has a much bigger footprint, so KU was placed in the Arlington region, known as “North Texas” so as not to offend the tall hats in Dallas. — Sports Editor Tom Keegan can be reached at 832-7147.

andelions are the sure sign of spring in some communities. In Lawrence, it is street parties. During the last several years, closing a city street to host an event has grown in popularity.

Plan to undo classified jobs advances ————

Opponents say change will politicize government positions By Scott Rothschild srothschild@ljworld.com

TOPEKA — Republicans on a House committee on Monday approved a measure that would undo the protections of the classified employment system for many current state workers and future hires. House Bill 2384 now goes

to the full House for consideration. The legislation was proposed by Appropriations Chairman Marc Rhoades, RNewton, but during a public hearing on the measure no one testified in favor of it. Rep. Jerry Henry of Atchison, the ranking Democrat on the committee, said, “This is a pretty hasty bill. I’m con-

cerned we didn’t go through the proper channels.” HB 2384 would make all state attorneys, supervisors and information technology workers unclassified. After July 1, all new hires — or any current state employee who is either transferred, demoted or promoted, or is

TOPEKA — Republican legislators and GOP Gov. Sam Brownback’s administration on Monday launched a campaign to create a 401(k)-style pension plan for new Kansas teachers and government workers with a pitch from former presidential candidate Bill Bradley and a Nobel laureate. Bradley, a retired U.S. senator from New Jersey and former New York Knicks standout, and Robert Merton, a professor of finance at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, were star witnesses for a Kansas House Pensions and Benefits Committee hearing. Both advise a Texas company that manages 401(k)-style plans in the private sector, where such plans are the norm, and they said innovations in managing them can reduce uncertainty for employees about their retirement benefits. If legislators opt for a 401(k)style plan, that firm and others could seek a contract to manage it for the Kansas Public Employees Retirement System. The committee has been working quietly for weeks on legislation aimed at improving the long-term financial health of KPERS, which has a projected $9.3 billion gap between its anticipated revenues and the benefits promised to public employees through 2033. Legislators enacted a major overhaul of the pension system last year, but it did not include a new 401(k)-style plan, favored by Brownback and other GOP conservatives. The House committee’s proposals would start a 401(k)-style plan for teachers and government workers hired after 2014 and authorize the state to issue $1.5 billion in bonds to bolster the pension system, an idea the panel reviewed Monday evening after its hearing with Bradley and Merton. KPERS now operates traditional plans that guarantee retirement benefits up front, based on an employee’s years of service and career-end salary. Bradley and Merton said such traditional plans are no longer sustainable, but they acknowledged that 401(k)-style plans have defects as well. Merton said such plans tend to focus on building up an overall nest egg

cancelled Monday, after workers found the machinery disabled by thieves who had stripped all of the copper wire. City workers discovered the damage and reported the theft to police about 11:30 a.m. Monday, said Kim Murphree, a Lawrence Police Department spokeswoman. All of the machines servicing the complex’s 10 batting cages, including lights, pitching machines and a token dispenser, were disabled by the removal of the wire, city staff said. Because the cages were closed for the winter season, it was unclear exactly when the theft occurred, but police believe it happened in the first two weeks of this month. The exact cost of the damage hasn’t yet been assessed, and it isn’t known when the batting cages will be repaired and opened. • A Lawrence man reported that two guns were stolen from a house in the 1300 block of Brook Street, Kim Murphree, a Lawrence Police Department spokeswoman, said. The man said a shotgun and a rifle were missing Sunday when a relative checked on the house, and the door locks appeared to have been tampered with. Police registered the stolen guns with an FBI database, Murphree said.

U.S. Supreme Court divided over voter requirement WASHINGTON (AP) — Supreme Court justices disagreed Monday over whether states can require would-be voters to prove they are U.S. citizens before using a federal registration system designed to make signing up easier. Arizona and other states told the justices the precaution is needed to keep illegal immigrants and other noncitizens from voting. But some justices asked whether states have the right to force people to document their citizenship when Congress ordered the states to accept and use federal “motor voter� registration cards that only ask registrants to swear on paper that they are U.S. citizens. “I have a real big disconnect with how you can be saying you’re accepting and using, when you’re not registering people when they use it the way the federal law permits them to,� Justice Sonia Sotomayor said to Arizona Attorney General Thomas C. Horne. Said Horne: “It is the burden of the states to determine the eligibility of the voters.� This is the second voting eligibility issue the

high court is tackling this session. Last month, several justices voiced deep skepticism about whether a section of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, a law that has helped millions of minorities exercise their right to vote, especially in areas of the Deep South, was still needed. The court will make decisions in both later this year. In Monday’s case, the court is deciding the legality of Arizona’s requirement that prospective voters document their U.S. citizenship in order to use a registration form produced under the federal “motor voter� registration law. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said that that 1993 National Voter Registration Act, which doesn’t require such documentation, trumps Arizona’s Proposition 200 passed in 2004. Arizona appealed that decision to the Supreme Court. The case focuses on Arizona, which has tangled frequently with the federal government over immigration issues involving the Mexican border. But it has broader implications because four other states

— Alabama, Georgia, Kansas and Tennessee — have similar requirements, and 12 other states are contemplating such legislation. The federal “motor voter� law, enacted in 1993 to expand voter registration, requires states to offer voter registration when a resident applies for a driver’s license or certain benefits. Another provision of that law — the one at issue before the court — requires states to allow would-be voters to fill out mail-in registration cards and swear they are citizens under penalty of perjury, but it doesn’t require them to show proof. Under Proposition 200, Arizona officials require an Arizona driver’s license issued after 1996, a U.S. birth certificate, a passport or other similar document, or the state will reject the federal registration application form. Justice Antonin Scalia seemed to think that a sworn statement wasn’t enough to allow people to register to vote. “If you’re willing to violate the voting laws, I suppose you’re willing to violate the perjury laws,� he said.

Classified

anecdotal information he has received, agency heads want to have more flexibility to reward and manage employees. Appropriations Vice Chairman Gene Suellentrop, R-Wichita, said the bill will allow supervisors to bring in top qualified people in information technology and legal support. But representatives of state workers said the bill would mean jobs would be awarded based on politics instead of merit.

promoted into a different position — would be unclassified. The bill would exempt employees of public safety agencies from the changes. Henry said drastically altering a decades-old system of classified employees who can appeal job dismissals and demotions through the Civil Service System deserved an indepth study. Rhoades said based on

and investment returns, rather than on the amount of income a worker wants in retirement. He said it’s possible to design a 401(k)style plan LEGISLATURE that gives workers simple-to-use guidance on how much to save to have an adequate income in retirement. “This is an innovation that is desperately needed in the pension area,� Bradley told the committee. “Your choice is: Do we really try to innovate here and in this case make Kansas really the cutting edge?�

The local Voter Education Coalition will sponsor a town hall meeting March 26 to discuss the $92.5 million school bond question that will be on the April 2 ballot. The event will begin at 7 p.m. in the Carnegie Building, 200 W. Ninth. The public will have an opportunity to hear presentations about the impact of the bond issue on schools and local taxes. Audience members also will be — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild invited to ask their own can be reached at 785-423-0668. questions about the bond issue.

The committee’s proposals still face strong skepticism from retiree and public employee groups and their Democratic allies. A 401(k)-style plan would base retirement benefits on the amount of money workers and their employers contributed to the plan and the earnings from stocks, bonds and other investments over time. Public employee groups worry that volatility in financial markets — or a crash — could slash benefits for employees as they near retirement age. They’ve also noted that starting a new plan doesn’t address how the state will close the long-term funding gap in its existing pension system. Supporters of such plans say creating one will at least keep the gap from growing.

Acupuncture may help relieve allergies, study indicates By Landon Hall The Orange County Register

Heather Rice calls them â&#x20AC;&#x153;kitty cat whiskersâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; one acupuncture needle inserted on each side of the nostrils, an acupuncture point known as Large Intestine 20. The treatment helps alleviate symptoms of seasonal allergic rhinitis: runny nose, congestion, nasal drip and general misery, says Rice, a licensed acupuncturist at University of California-Irvineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Susan Samueli Center for Integrative Medicine. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One thing I notice almost immediately is that in just 30 minutes, they say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Oh my God, I can actually breathe,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Rice said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to say itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 100 percent, but with at least 8 out of 10 people, their noses will open up. They can breathe better, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not as congested.â&#x20AC;? The benefits Rice has observed are confirmed in a new study, although the benefit isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as pronounced as she has found in her day-to-day work. The paper, published recently in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine, followed 422 Germans who suffered from seasonal pollen allergies. Over the course of eight weeks, the subjects were divided into three groups and given three treatments â&#x20AC;&#x201D; acupuncture, together with the antihistamine cetirizine (marketed as Zyrtec); a â&#x20AC;&#x153;shamâ&#x20AC;? acupuncture, along with the drug; and the drug only.

combination of getting the proper medication and adjusting the patientâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s environment. To control the environment, a person can close windows and use an air filter in the homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heating/cooling system. Weiner said a cheaper filter is fine as long as it is changed monthly. He advised against using a humidifier because it tends to help mold grow, which is one of the most common allergens for people. Weiner advised against investing in an expensive vacuum or carpet cleaner. Often people with allergies think the constant cleaning and vacuuming of carpets will help them when it actually is no good, he said. Cleaning the carpets could also help more mold to grow because of the extra moisture. Weiner said no vacuum or cleaner can really get rid of dust mites and other allergens, and instead suggested removing carpet in the bedroom. For medication, Weiner said it is best to use a cortisone nose spray and not a cold decongestant. He also recommended using eye drops to reduce itchiness and irritation of the eyes. Weiner said an important part of caring for asthma is caring for allergies, which cause the swelling to worsen and make breathing more difficult. A person with asthma should use a cortisone inhaler as well as a rescue inhaler before strenuous exercise. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s OK for asthma to restrict and limit you, and it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t,â&#x20AC;? Weiner said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you take care of it, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s OK to participate in sports.â&#x20AC;? As long as a person receives treatment and follows doctorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s instructions, allergies and asthma shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t dramatically affect a personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lifestyle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of room for people with allergies and asthma to do better, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s our mission,â&#x20AC;? Weiner said.

The group that had real acupuncture with the drug reported a slight improvement in their symptoms â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a boost of 0.7 points on the Rhinitis Quality of Life Questionnaire, compared with the group that got no acupuncture; and a boost of 0.5 points compared with the group that received the fake acupuncture, which involved sticking them with needles in places that arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t accepted treatment points. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The improvements may not have been large enough to be noticeable or to make much of a difference to people,â&#x20AC;? the authors said in a summary of their paper. This brings up the big question once again about acupuncture: Does it really work, or do people just convince themselves it works? And does it mat-

ter? A large analysis of previous studies last year determined the effectiveness rate for real acupuncture was about 50 percent, and for sham acupuncture it was 43 percent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;UCIâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been studying that as well,â&#x20AC;? Rice said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the placebo effect. That is an ongoing thing.â&#x20AC;? The German study also found that the improvement from acupuncture had disappeared two months after the study ended. That doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t surprise Rice, who says further treatments are needed to keep up the therapeutic benefits. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of how acupuncture works with those kinds of things,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What I say is this: Would you rather be on antihistamines every day or come and get acupuncture once a week?â&#x20AC;?

Program offers seniors path to healthier lifestyle By Karrey Britt Lawrence-Douglas County Health Department

Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a six-week program unique to Douglas County that helps seniors live a healthier life. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s called Personal Actions to Health, or PATH, and it teaches residents, ages 60 and older, about the importance of exercise and nutrition. The program begins April 2 with classes scheduled from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays until May 9 at the East Lawrence Recreation Center, 1245 E. 15th St. During the program, seniors will learn how to modify and practice food habits to protect or improve quality of life, learn about the effects of exercise on chronic diseases, sample a variety of dishes using nutritious foods, and

participate in flexibility and strength building exercises during a group workout. Shirley Grubbs, Lawrence-Douglas County Health Department nurse, said past participants have shown improved agility, balance and coordination, and increased flexibility, strength and endurance. Many participants also gain self-esteem and new friendships. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve even had birthday parties and anniversary celebrations in our graduate classes,â&#x20AC;? she said. The cost is $25, but if you sign up with a friend, the cost is $15 each. After the six-week program is completed, participants are wel-

SHELTER BENEFIT

training center, which sits largely empty save for some desks and chairs for GED classes. Organizers say the space eventually will be filled with jobcertification programs in such fields as housekeeping, maintenance and recycling. The shelter currently has about 120 residents, with the space to fit roughly a half-dozen more. The old building had a capacity of 75 with nearby churches taking in another 15 people nightly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were really, really cramped,â&#x20AC;? said Loring Henderson, the shelterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s executive director. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was also an old building. We were in a bad situation. Everybody was glad to get out of there.â&#x20AC;? Henderson said the new space gives residents a greater sense of stability, allowing them to focus on finding a job and place to live. The additional room was much needed, he added, as the number of people needing to stay at the shelter has shot up in recent years. The family space is one of the major upgrades at the new shelter. It features separate bedrooms containing actual beds, three bathrooms with showers and tubs, and a common area that includes a TV, computer with Internet access and large selection of toys. On a recent day there, a teenage girl sat on a recliner reading a book, a middle-aged woman looked up job openings on the computer and a mohawked baby played with a deflated basketball. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s night and day for us,â&#x20AC;? said Elizabeth Stephens, director of family programs at the shelter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think the whole shelter (at the previous location) was the size of our (new) family area.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;A lot more comfortableâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Stephens said the relocation has â&#x20AC;&#x153;changed the momentumâ&#x20AC;? of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s efforts to find homes for the displaced. Residents, particularly children, have been less stressed out and thus less apt to fight and argue with one another. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are much more able to make progress because they are not all standing on top of each other,â&#x20AC;? she said, adding: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Families feel a lot more comfortable and have more dignity because they sleep in a comfortable bed and have a space to call their own.â&#x20AC;? The family section is already close to capacity, and Stephens recently has had to turn away several families. Still, she said three families have been able to move out since February, a faster turnover rate than at the old shelter. In the rest of the facility, two residents have found housing while 10 have got-

Girl Scout Troop 7745 is having a rummage sale to benefit the Lawrence Community Shelter from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. April 6 at the American Legion, 3408 W. Sixth St. in Lawrence. The girls are hoping to raise enough money to build a playground at the shelter. The troop is now accepting donations for the sale, and is asking for toys, books, furniture, household items, clothing or anything else that is in good shape and new or gently used. Please email questions and requests to pick up items to girlsserving4communityshelter@ gmail.com or call Linda Edman at (785) 842-1099 and leave a message. ten permanent jobs since the move. Henderson, though, says the overall turnover rate has yet to change much, something he attributes largely to the newness of the place. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So much of the first two months have been getting settled,â&#x20AC;? he said. City officials are taking a wait-and-see approach in determining the new facilityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s effectiveness. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always said we need to temper any expectations as far as improvement in the situation downtown with opening the new shelter,â&#x20AC;? said City Commissioner Hugh Carter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know if weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll really know if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s had any impact on downtown or the number of homeless until weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had the four seasons to look at.â&#x20AC;? That said, Carter is confident the people of Lawrence made a good investment, pointing to the new centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stricter management plan and additional office space that allows for private meetings between residents and social-service providers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This new shelter, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always thought it should be renamed. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more than just a shelter. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a jobs program,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I do believe with those tools and resources weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see better results of getting people into homes or jobs.â&#x20AC;?

Some criticisms One drawback of the new center is its location on the far southeast side of town, though the city recently added a bus stop nearby. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People have a hard time finding us,â&#x20AC;? Henderson admitted, adding that the shelter now spends significantly more money on gasoline driving residents to appointments. It also pays more for utilities because of the larger facility.

Elsewhere in the shelter, men and women now have separate sleeping areas complete with bunk beds; a kitchen manager prepares multiple hot meals a day; a library features books donated by the Lawrence Public Library; and a garden soon will enable residents to grow their own food. The shelterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s medical clinic is always open, dispensing medication to residents as they need it. Emergency calls are down at the new building. In addition, residents at the shelter continue to, as they have for the past six years, make dog treats under the Good Dog! label. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hoping to prepare them for the outside job market,â&#x20AC;? said Maureen Bernhagen, one of the programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coordinators. Carol Vesco, a 44-yearold resident from Tonganoxie, said she greatly prefers the new facility to the old one. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have our own beds. Before we had to sleep on the floor and wait for mats,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have more than one bathroom, which is nice, and more than a couple showers. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot cleaner, also. The only thing I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like is itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too far away and you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t walk downtown if you need to.â&#x20AC;? Josh Kimmerly, a 28-year-old resident originally from Toronto, also likes the spacious new location. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has a lot more space, more privacy, instead of having six people listen to your conversations. We actually have a place to go eat. You can actually sit and have a meal.â&#x20AC;? His only criticism was that the center needed more bathrooms. Marshall similarly favors the location of the former shelter, as it allowed residents to walk to the gasoline station or library. He also wishes the facility had a refrigerator so residents could have their own food. His only other complaint had more to do with the communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attitude toward the homeless. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have my GED, and I live in a college town. Trying to find a job without the GED part is really complicated,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s judgmental. Give someone a chance to actually prove themselves.â&#x20AC;? Nearly three months in, things at the Lawrence Community Shelter look to be on the upswing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just extremely grateful to the community of Lawrence for its support,â&#x20AC;? Henderson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a decent facility. We have a lot of ideas to put into practice as time unfolds. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just getting started.â&#x20AC;?

Less confusing? The effort to alter the nature of local elections in Kansas is another example of legislators seeking to solve a problem that doesn’t exist — and making the situation worse in the process.

D

on Moler, executive director of the League of Kansas Municipalities, hit the nail on the head regarding various attempts to move local elections to November and turn them into partisan contests. “City elections have been held in the springtime since 1861,” said Moler. “That’s a period of 152 years, and we believe there’s no reason to move these elections unless we can show some truly compelling reasons to do it.” So far, those compelling reasons haven’t surfaced. All Kansans have is speculation by the secretary of state’s office that moving city and school elections to November would boost voter participation. Boosting voter turnout is always a good goal, but there are many drawbacks to the proposals that are on the table. Chief among those concerns are the two Senate bills that would turn local city and school board elections into partisan contests by forcing those candidates to run as Republicans, Democrats, Libertarians, etc. Adding party politics to city and school elections is a terrible idea. City commissioners and school board members should be elected on the basis of their knowledge of local issues and their commitment to serving local constituents, not on the basis of their affiliation with a political party on the state or national level. One Senate bill puts local elections in even-numbered years, when turnout would be driven primarily by hot state and national contests rather than by the voters’ interest in local races. The other Senate bill would have local elections stand alone in odd-numbered years. A House bill would move local elections to the fall in odd-numbered years but keep them nonpartisan. Moving local elections to the fall in odd-numbered years, when they wouldn’t be combined with state and national races, would seem to have little impact on turnout. In fact, having primaries in August, when many families are on vacation, may actually decrease primary participation. Holding the elections in the fall in even-numbered years might increase participation, but it also increases the chances that local races will be overshadowed by state and national races. Having local primaries in August would greatly increase the length of campaigns for those offices, which isn’t a plus. The longer campaign period is necessary for people in statewide races, but the current, shorter period between local primaries and general elections helps focus attention on those races. A representative of the Secretary of State’s office told a Senate committee last week that combining the elections would be an improvement because, “There would be no confusion about if there is an election or when it is.” Are Kansas voters really that easily confused? As Moler said, they’ve been voting for school board and city officials in the spring since Kansas achieved statehood. Making those races partisan and moving them to November where they are more likely to get lost amid state and national races is not an improvement. Once again, it seems legislators are seeking a solution to a nonexistent problem. They should leave spring elections alone.

U.S. is still tallying Iraq war losses Ten years after the invasion of Iraq, it’s clear who lost the war that followed. But it may be years before we know if anyone won. Topping the loser’s columns, of course, is Saddam Hussein, with the world better for it. Yet, despite his demise, America is also the loser. The goals the Bush administration set for the war were never achievable, and the costs were greater than most Americans realize, not just in lives and money squandered but in reputation lost. Iraqis were freed from Hussein, but a botched American occupation led to a civil war that killed more than 100,000 civilians and forced millions to flee the

The goals the Bush administration set for the war were never achievable, and the costs were greater than most Americans realize, not just in lives and money squandered but in reputation lost.” country. Despite elections, Iraq still has a government that arrests and tortures political opponents and runs a secret police state. Indeed, in the near term, the biggest winner from the war looks to be Iran, whose influence on Iraq has grown while America’s has shrunk. A decade later, it’s painful to recall the certainty of many top U.S. occupation officials that they could remake the country. This attitude was most prevalent among those with no Mideast experience, who would accuse anyone who tried to contradict them of “ignoring the good news.” More than 4,000 American lives were lost, and countless billions of dollars wasted because U.S. officials misread Iraq and mismanaged the war’s aftermath. An occupation that embraced willful blindness was bound to fail. Ditto for an invasion based on illusions. The Iraq war

was justified by White House claims that Hussein was secretly building nukes and was in cahoots with al-Qaida. The Bush team ignored plentiful prewar evidence that neither of these claims was true. President George W. Bush and several senior officials believed Hussein’s fall would trigger the rise of friendly democracies in Iraq and throughout the region. “The Bush Doctrine could help undo dictatorships not only in Iraq, Iran, and North Korea, but also in … China and Saudi Arabia,” wrote William Kristol, editor of the Weekly Standard, the favored journal of Bush administration officials. Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz, the intellectual architect of the war, told me in a November 2002 interview that postwar Iraq would resemble post-World War II France. Of course, the real Iraq proved wholly different from White House expectations. In 2007, Bush’s troop “surge” calmed the sectarian slaughter and prevented a humiliating U.S. defeat. But far from providing a model for regional change, Iraq became the nightmare example that Arab democrats sought to avoid. Contrary to White House dreams, the war transformed Iran into the major power broker in Baghdad; Iraq’s newly empowered Shiite leaders depend on co-religionists in Tehran for political support against their Sunni minority and neighboring Sunni states. As for Iraqis, the cost of

the war was brutal. I think often of Yasser Salihee, an Iraqi journalist colleague killed by a U.S. soldier who mistook him for the enemy. Or Salam Hamrani, who had to flee the country because his life was threatened for helping U.S. troops finger Shiite militiamen who were killing his Sunni neighbors. Or Dr. Riyadh Adhadh, who ran and won in provincial elections but spent eight months in jail because the government of Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki is suspicious of Sunnis. These cases are typical of thousands. Hundreds of Iraqis remain under death threat because they worked for the U.S. military, contractors, or civilian officials and still haven’t received promised U.S. visas. Tens of thousands of educated Iraqis, the cream of the middle class, including thousands of endangered Christians, have fled from persecution by newly empowered Islamists. Joint U.S.-Iraqi programs that might have helped endangered Iraqi democrats expand their reach are faltering, as America tries to put the Iraq war behind it. The Obama administration blew the chance to leave a follow-on troop presence in Iraq that would have facilitated these programs and maintained some U.S. influence in Baghdad. Yet Iraq still has the opportunity to move forward — largely because of oil. A decade after the war, Iraq oil production is finally stable and expanding. The country is producing the largest amount

To the editor: Our Kansas Legislature is indeed a thing of beauty. All they are able to address is reproductive rights and guns. And they want to use their almost unlimited power (thanks to the Kochs) in their “limited government” to push their ultra-extreme positions on both issues down the throats of common-sense Kansans. I can’t easily visualize my 70-year-old typing teacher, Mrs. Czerny, packing heat as she walked around the classroom. But I suppose even that is better than having an overweight, under-educated NRA type dressed in camo, wandering the halls with his AR-15, looking for serial killers and moderates.

in three decades, nearly 3.35 million barrels daily. The International Energy Agency predicts Iraqi production will double by 2020, setting up Iraq as a rival to the Saudis, perhaps lessening its dependence on Iran. Oil, of course, can be a curse for a “petro-state” such as Iraq whose economy is almost totally dependent on oil revenue. That revenue is the perfect lubricant for dictators. But this wealth at least gives Iraqis, a talented people whose educational attainment used to be high, the chance to rebuild their shattered state. Whether they can finally emerge from the culture of dictatorship remains uncertain. There’s no sign American companies will get a lion’s share of Iraqi oil contracts — contrary to the widespread belief that Washington went to war for oil. But, by keeping global oil prices stable, an increased Iraqi oil flow will undercut the regime in Tehran, which depends on high oil prices. It will also help Baghdad offset Iranian pressures. A small victory, but hardly recompense for American losses. In Iraq, we destroyed our reputation for competence, and our global moral stature. Iraq also distracted U.S. attention from cementing the 2003 victory over the Afghan Taliban. A decade after the invasion, we are still toting up the staggering costs of this war. — Trudy Rubin is a columnist for the Philadelphia Inquirer.

OLD HOME TOWN torists not wearing seat belts (nearly two out of three), but one could be forgiven for leaping to the conclusion that about 50 percent of fatalities among nonteenage motorists are associated with failure to wear seat belts. I’ve worn a seat belt and insisted all others in my car do so, ever since I owned my first car. My cousin and his fiancée were thrown beltless from their car and killed by a drunken driver in front of her home early on Christmas morning of 1964. I’ve recently returned to Kansas after 15 years along the Gulf Coast, in states that have taken “Click It or Ticket” seriously. In Florida, particularly, the fine to the driver is $150 for each person in the car who isn’t wearing a seat belt, regardless of front seat or back, regardless of any other violation. Kansas needs a law with some teeth in it ($10 fine; are you kidding me?!) and law enforcement that does more than pay lip service to this issue for just two weeks a year, instead of gumming violators into compliance.

From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for March 19, 1913: YEARS “Wilbur EbAGO erhart, son of IN 1913 Noah Eberhart, living six miles southwest of Lawrence, was accidentally shot in the back yesterday by a companion, LaVerne Ise, with whom he was hunting. The two boys left their homes yesterday morning to go duck hunting. They had located a flock of ducks and were advancing through the grass and brush to get within range. They were crouching along the ground, Eberhart in front, when in some way Ise’s gun was discharged. It is presumed that in crawling along the ground Ise had his gun cocked and a stick or something caught on the trigger and fired the gun. Practically the entire charge entered Eberhart’s back. However, the shot entered in a slanting direction and many of them caused only slight flesh wounds. Had the charge struck the boy square it might have been fatal. The injured hunter was brought to Lawrence and taken to the Jones hospital, where the wounds were dressed and the shot removed. While Eberhart’s condition is quite serious and the wounds causing him considerable pain it is not believed that the accident will be fatal.” — Compiled by Sarah St. John

KANSAS WOMENâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S BASKETBALL

Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in, again!

By Gary Bedore gbedore@ljworld.com

Kansas University basketball coach Bill Self had his playersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; full attention as he delivered his first scouting report on Western Kentucky on Sunday in Allen Fieldhouse. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Hey, this is Western Kentucky. This is their record (20-15). This is the league they play in (Sun Belt) and everybody knows WKU V. KU their alltime great- Who: No. 16 est player Western to ever play Kentucky there,â&#x20AC;? Self (20-15) vs. said Monday. No. 1 Kansas â&#x20AC;&#x153;They said, (29-5) â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Who is it?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I When: said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Coach Approx. 8:50 Townsend,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; p.m. Friday and every- Where: Sprint body started Center, Kanlaughing be- sas City, Mo. cause I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think Kurt TV: TNT was by any (Knology stretch,â&#x20AC;? Self chs. 45, 245) added of ninth-year KU assistant Kurtis Townsend, a former Hilltopper point guard who graduated from WKU Townsend in 1982.

The Jayhawks earned a No. 12 seed in the Norfolk region and will play fifth-seeded Colorado at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday in Boulder, Colo.

mtait@ljworld.com

When the Kansas University womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball team bowed out of the 2012 NCAA Tournament after an impressive battle against perennial power Tennessee in the Sweet 16, the talk shifted to recreating the magic in 2013. It may not have been what the 18-13 Jayhawks expected when this season began, but Monday certainly had that feeling of dĂŠjĂ  vu as Kansas, for the second year in a row, learned that it had made the tournament as a double-digit seed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The drama of it (was) similar to last year,â&#x20AC;? said KU coach Bonnie Henrickson, whose Jayhawks earned the No. 12 seed in the Norfolk region and will play fifth-seeded and 19thranked Colorado at 5:30 p.m. Saturday in Boulder, Colo. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It feels a little different, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a clean slate and letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s go.â&#x20AC;? Although there was some doubt about whether the Jayhawks would be included in this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s field, Henrickson said she believed her team, which finished 8-10 in conference play, got in because of the Big 12â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s powerhouse reputation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We did, West Virginia did and then all the other seedings (were) based on the strength of the Big 12,â&#x20AC;? Henrickson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We talk about how important that is and we want to build on the challenge and competitiveness of the league once we get into postseason.â&#x20AC;?

KANSASâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; NATALIE KNIGHT HUGS Carolyn Davis after the NCAA Tournament field was announced, Monday evening at Allen Fieldhouse. At left is KU coach Bonnie Henrickson. The Jayhawks did exactly that in 2012. As an 11 seed and one of the last teams in, Kansas won back-to-back games against sixth-seeded Nebraska and third-seeded Delaware before falling to second-seeded Tennessee. Henrickson said she would not talk much about last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s run but would emphasize what made it happen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;History doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have any impact on success in the future,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we do anything, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll embrace how hungry we were, how excited we were, how much energy we played with and, defensively, how good we were.â&#x20AC;? One of the true feel-good story lines of the Jayhawksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;

inclusion in this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s field is the fact that senior Carolyn Davis will finally get her shot to play in the Big Dance. Out with a knee injury during last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s run, the emotions from that heartbreak came rushing back as soon as Davis heard Kansas announced on the ESPN broadcast, 21 minutes after the selection show began. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was sweating a lot,â&#x20AC;? Davis said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was nervous, my heart was racing and I was just really excited to see our name. I had a lot of emotions. Just to know that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve worked so hard for this, and this is what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve wanted since my freshman year.â&#x20AC;? Asked if she expected the

tears to flow on Monday, Davis was honest. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Either way I was probably gonna cry,â&#x20AC;? she said. Although the Jayhawks did not cruise into the field as many expected they would, the mere fact that they got in was enough to put the memories of a rough season behind them. Senior point guard Angel Goodrich, who carried the Jayhawks during last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s postseason run, said hearing KUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name called also lifted a weight off of her shoulders. In addition, she said she was thrilled to go into battle beside Davis and fellow senior Please see KU WOMEN, page 10B

Heat 105, Celtics 103 BOSTON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; LeBron James made the go-ahead jumper with 10.5 seconds left to lead Miami to its 23rd consecutive victory on Monday night. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the second-longest winning streak in NBA history, surpassing the 22 straight that Houston won in 2007-08 and trailing only the 33 in a row won by the 1971-72 Los Angeles Lakers. James scored 37 with 12 assists as the Heat won in Boston in the regular season for the first time in 11 tries despite a careerhigh 43 points from Jeff Green. The Celtics were without Kevin Garnett, who has the flu and a left thigh strain. Paul Pierce had 17 points, eight rebounds and eight assists for the Celtics.

WKU coach: ‘We won’t be scared’ SCOREBOARD By Gary Bedore gbedore@ljworld.com

National radio talk show host Jim Rome asked Western Kentucky basketball coach Ray Harper to divulge the first thing that popped in his head when informed his No. 16-seeded Hilltoppers would be playing No. 1 seed Kansas University on Friday night in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. “Let’s play somewhere else ... that was the first thing,” Harper said Monday, referring to Sprint Center in Kansas City, Mo., site of the 8:50 p.m., contest. “You know they are a basketball program with a huge tradition and a Hall of Fame coach in Bill Self, so we know the challenges that lie ahead,” Harper added.

This year, the Hilltoppers played four games against tournament teams, including Louisville and VCU and two match-ups with Sun Belt champion Middle Tennessee. WKU lost all four games. “I heard one of the socalled experts last night said we wouldn’t be scared but we should be scared, and I can assure you we won’t be scared,” Harper told Rome.

If (KU and UNC advance), we are going to have two good teams with unbelievable history and tradition going against each other. That will CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1B be the focus as opposed to the ex-coach at KU. there. It’s kind of a special I don’t see that being a factor any longer.” place for me.” Townsend helped WKU to the 1980 Ohio Valley Conference title and an NCAA Tournament bid where WKU lost to Virginia Tech in double overtime in the first round. “The first round was at our place, at home,” Townsend said. “Kentucky was there. Indiana was there. That’s when they used to keep teams local. We hosted it and probably should have won and got a chance to play Indiana when Isiah Thomas was a freshman. But we lost in double overtime,” added Townsend, who recalled averaging 10 points and three assists a game as a junior starter before tearing his ACL and averaging five points a game his senior year in a reserve role. “In Bowling Green, Ky., we’re the only game in town. The people support the program and they’ve got a great history and tradition of basketball there going back to Jim McDaniels (former NBA player who played at WKU from 1968 to ‘71) and Clem Haskins (1964-67). E.A. Diddle (1922-64) was a famous coach. When I was there we were in the top 10 in all-time wins. I’m not sure where they are now (17th).” The Hilltoppers have been outstanding in recent years, as well. “They won their confer-

— Kansas coach Bill Self on a possible match-up with Roy Williams and North Carolina in the NCAA Tournament ence tournament four of the last six years including this one, so they are always in there,” Townsend said. “I think the year we won it, in 2008, they got to the Sweet 16.” Townsend has put his Western Kentucky degree to good use. “I studied ‘recreation’ and got my degree in that. Like most kids when they were my age, I was thinking I’d go on and play pro ball,” he said. “I probably didn’t take it as serious as I needed to. It’s a great place. I’m glad I went to school there and met a lot of people influential in my life. Coach Haskins treated me like a member of his family and coach Keady. It was good for me.”

Roy looms in third round: The winner of the KU-Western Kentucky game will meet the winner of North CarolinaVillanova on Sunday in the third round. UNC, of course, is coached by Roy Williams, who was Self’s predecessor at KU. Self was asked Monday about the possible “Roy vs. KU” match-up maybe being a distraction. “I would say it is a potential distraction but we won’t

allow it to be,” Self said on the Big 12 teleconference. “It certainly won’t be a distraction to our players at all. None of them were around 10 years ago. Some of them were in fourth, fifth grade. It doesn’t mean anything to our guys for sure. It will not even be brought up. It will not be a distraction for me. It will not change preparation. “If we are fortunate enough to advance and they are fortunate enough to advance and we hook up against each other we are going to have two good teams with unbelievable history and tradition going against each other,” Self added. “That will be the focus as opposed to the ex-coach at KU. I don’t see that being a factor any longer.”

Tape aplenty: Self has plenty of tape on Western Kentucky. “It used to be (years ago) there was ‘Hoops Video’ (company) where you’d go get tapes. If they could get them on airplanes by midnight Sunday night we could have them by noon the next morning or 3 the next afternoon,” Self said. “Now we’ve got it all. We can go to ‘Synergy’ and

watch whatever we want to watch. Access from a scouting standpoint has become a more level field.”

Big Eight rules: Seven teams from the old Big Eight have made the NCAAs. They are: KU, K-State, Missouri, Iowa State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Colorado. “I remember when we were in the Big Eight, six teams got in one year. It’s always been an unbelievable basketball area and league and it’s good to see that tradition continuing,” Self said. “It’s pretty to cool to see them all doing well,” he added, also applauding Wichita State’s making the field.

Honors: KU’s Ben McLemore and Jeff Withey were named second team USBWA All-America on Monday.

Practice times: KU will hold its open practice from 5:10 to 5:50 p.m., Thursday, in Sprint Center. Western Kentucky’s practice is 6:40 to 7:20. North Carolina’s is 4:25 to 5:05 and Kansas State’s 2:15 to 2:55.

Hats purchased: Julius Randle, a 6-9 senior forward from Prestonwood Christian Academy in Plano, Texas, who is scheduled to announce his college choice at noon Wednesday on ESPNU, went shopping for hats of his four finalists Wednesday, Jason Jordan of USA Today reported. The finalists are: KU, Kentucky, Florida and Texas.

42 Title Miss Spain

Dear Annie: I have a question about forced touching. Let’s say an 8-year-old doesn’t want to hug her uncle or give Grandma a kiss. Do you force the kid to do it? Do you badger, threaten and make a fuss? I’m wondering about this because if you tell your kid, “You have to give this person a hug” or “You have to shake their hand,” aren’t you teaching the kid that their body doesn’t belong to them? If you force your kid to allow others to put their hands on your kid’s body, how will they know when they shouldn’t be touched at all? I hear all these people coming forward to say they were molested as kids by uncles, grandparents and other relatives, and that they didn’t say anything because they were taught that an adult could touch them at will. — New York Dear New York: No child should be forced to

hug, kiss or even touch another person, even a relative. You certainly can encourage or suggest that she “give Grandma a kiss goodbye,” but nothing more than that. If the child balks, don’t push or express displeasure. Leave it alone. Some kids are naturally reluctant to display that type of affection, and it has nothing to do with molestation. Kids who are forced to hug Aunt Jane, whose breath reeks and who tends to pinch their cheeks, will not be endearing her to them. And yes, kids who

Diving show ‘Splash’ just another flop The old phrase, “Imitation is the sincerest form of television,” has never seemed so timely. Coined by radio star Fred Allen, it perfectly sums up the essence of “Splash” (7 p.m., ABC), a brand-new series that seems anything but. ‘‘Splash” offers a diving board variation on the “Dancing With the Stars” (8 p.m., ABC) formula. Olympic diver Greg Louganis presides, while U.S. gold medalist David Boudia and Australian Olympic athlete and USA Dive Team director Steve Foley serve as judges. The “celebrity” divers include the tall Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, the portly Louie Anderson, beauties Nicole Eggert and Katherine Webb, former child stars Keshia Knight Pulliam and Drake Bell, Playboy mansion denizen Kendra Wilkinson and others. If “Splash” seems vaguely familiar, you must be among the 3 million or so who tuned in earlier this year to watch the Fox special “Stars in Danger: The High Dive.” Its disastrous ratings earned headlines such as “Fox Diving Show Belly Flops.” So why is ABC airing a show based on an idea that has already failed miserably? Sadly, it’s at least partly because celebrity diving shows have been hits in Germany and the Netherlands. Many of the biggest reality series (“Survivor,” ‘‘Big Brother”) were popular abroad before infecting our shores. In the imitative world of reality television, what works overseas seems more important than what American viewers like, or don’t like. No wonder so many viewers seem alienated from network television.

Dear Annie: My best friend of 30 years is a hoarder — not the “Buried Alive” type, but more the Need To Clean House type. “Rita” has not invited me over to her home in more than three years, while she has been to mine several times. I want Rita to enjoy her house again and have offered on numerous occasions to help clean. She agrees that she needs it, but never follows through. What else can I do? I’ve thought of calling Rita’s sister, who lives out of town, to advise her of the severity of the situation. However, I’m not sure the sister can get away to come, in which case my call would only upset her. And Rita wouldn’t appreciate that I called her sister. Last week, a mutual friend told me that the

For Tuesday, March 19: This year you often swing from being a recluse to a wildly creative person. You spend a lot of time thinking about who you are and what you want. If you are single, you will express an unusual interest in romance this year. If you are attached, the two of you will enter a new phase in your relationship. 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’ll go from being efficient to reflective in no time. Those around you might wonder what’s going on. Tonight: Speak your mind. Taurus (April 20-May 20)  You keep going back to the same point as before. Understand your limitations, and go forward with an idea. Tonight: Hang out with friends. Gemini (May 21-June 20)  Do what is most important in the morning. You will find a solution easily if you relax. Tonight: Treat yourself to a new item for your wardrobe. Cancer (June 21-July 22)  Draw in more of what you want. Listen to feedback from someone close to you. Tonight: Be spontaneous. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)  Get as much done as possible in the morning. By midafternoon, you might want to handle a personal matter in a craftier manner. Tonight: Say “yes” to living.

roof of Rita’s house looks bad. She lives in the neighborhood and walks by every day. We can’t figure out what to do. Any suggestions? — Want To Help Dear Want: We think Rita is embarrassed by the condition of her house and doesn’t want her friends to clean it. She also may be having financial difficulties, making repair work beyond her means. Could you get a group of friends together to hire a cleaning service? Tell Rita you know she hasn’t had time to clean and you are worried about her. Say that you’d like to present her with the cleaning service as a gift. Ask her what day works best, and then set it up. However, there isn’t much you can do if she absolutely refuses your assistance. An unkempt house is not cause for alarm, and if Rita is, in fact, hoarding, she’ll need more help than you can provide.

Stanford will try and reach the Final Four for a sixth straight season and end Hall of Fame coach Tara VanDerveer’s 21year drought without a national championship. Notre Dame will be trying to make it back to a third straight national championship game. The Irish, led by senior guard Skylar Diggins, have already had an incredible season losing only to Baylor. To get to a third straight title game they’ll likely have to beat Connecticut for the fourth time this season. The Huskies will open on Saturday against Idaho. It’s been a somewhat disappointing season for the Huskies, who didn’t win either the Big East conference regular season or tournament title for the first time in 19 years.

Brittney Griner and Baylor’s path to a second straight national championship will have a familiar feel. Then again, so will the whole NCAA women’s basketball tournament. For the first time ever, the top four seeds are the same for consecutive seasons. Baylor, Connecticut, Notre Dame and Stanford all earned No. 1 spots when the field was announced Monday night. Unlike the men’s side, where it was a topsy-turvy season with major upsets seemingly every week, women’s basketball hasn’t had the same parity. The top six teams in the final Associated Press poll only had two losses outside of each other, the fewest by far since writers began voting for the AP’s No. 1 in the 1994-95 season. The women’s basketball madness gets started Saturday — the first step en route to the Final Four, which begins April 7 in New Orleans. Baylor coach Kim Mulkey hopes to make it there with her Lady Bears, who will be trying to become the fourth different school to win consecutive national championships, joining Southern California, UConn, and Tennessee. Standing in the way could be Tennessee. The Lady Vols, who have made every NCAA tournament since it began in 1982, are the No. 2 seed in Baylor’s region. This will be the
