House panel looks for budget savings in state workers’ pay By Scott Rothschild

TOPEKA — State employees were targeted Monday by Republicans on the House Appropriations Committee. The GOP members pushed through a proposed $19 million state employee pay cut and started discussions on a proposal by Chairman Marc

Rhoades, R-Newton, for another 5 percent pay cut by shutting down government two hours early each Friday. Rep. Marvin Kleeb, ROverland Park, said the cut in hours was “employee friendly” because it would allow workers some time to tend to personal business. Rhoades eventually withdrew his plan but said he might revive it

later in the session. Democrats, outnumbered by Republicans 17-6 on the committee, seemed relegated to an observer’s role as the panel worked on a budget for fiscal year 2012, which starts July 1. Legislators are looking to close a nearly $500 million revenue shortfall. Ranking Democrat Bill Feuerborn, of Garnett, said

state employees should start contacting their legislators to try to stop the proposals floating around the House budget. “There are some legislators who don’t appreciate the hard work our state employees do,” Feuerborn said. Republicans are pushing proposals that would make state workers pay higher

insurance premiums and pension contributions while eliminating longevity pay, and promised increases for state workers earning less than the private sector. And more cuts were coming as the Republicans on the committee continued fighting over ways to come in with a lower proposed budget than their Senate counterparts.

RON STEGALL, DOUGLAS COUNTY’S longtime chief probation officer, is retiring in May. Stegall, who has also worked as a minister, plans to return to the Mediterranean nation of Cyprus with his wife to work at a church they helped establish there in the 1990s.

Career spent helping others required firm but supporting hand By George Diepenbrock

sions in his life — as a pastor and a probation officer — might seem like a strange combination. But, if you think about it, he says, the similarities are definitely there. “In both ways, you are working with people, and you’re trying to help people,” said Stegall, 64, who will retire as Douglas County District Court’s chief probation officer in May. And colleagues say Stegall does a good job of separating his religious beliefs from his job, while still using insight he gained from helping people as a minister. “He has a good understanding of the people he supervises. He is fair with them but certainly doesn’t let them take advantage of him,” Chief District Judge Robert Fairchild said. Stegall started working full time as a probation officer in 1995 and has served as chief probation officer overseeing the community corrections and court services offices for the last 10 years. Before that, he worked part time and was a volunteer — at the urging of now

— Probation supervisor Ron Stegall retired Judge Jean Shepherd — and a probation officer from 1990 to 1992. From 1992 to 1995, he and his wife, Kathy, who will also retire in May from a teaching job in Kansas City, Kan., were in Cyprus helping establish a church affiliated with their Lawrence Reformed Presbyterian Church, Christ Covenant Church, where Stegall had served as pastor until 1990. “He’s such an intelligent, calming force in an office that deals with a lot of emotional issues,” District Judge Michael Malone said. Even with his role as an administrator, Stegall has continued to work with people on probation. “We supervise those individuals who have been clearly shown to be the most risky people in our community,” Stegall said. “Long term, the very best way to promote public safety is through offender reformation. We don’t do it for them,

but what we can do is help them.” His officers are taught to be clear with people they supervise and what’s expected from them. They’re there to help, but if someone continues to disobey a judge’s orders, Stegall said, they’re not shy about getting them back to court to let a judge decide whether their probation should be revoked. “I don’t think that I’ve ever filed a probation violation on somebody who was surprised by that,” he said. Fairchild said due to budget constraints, Stegall won’t be replaced. Michelle Roberts, the chief court services officer, and Deborah Ferguson, current deputy director of community corrections, will take on supervisory roles. Court administrator Linda Koester Vogelsang will also be more directly involved. As for Stegall, he and his wife plan to return to Cyprus for about a year to help their church there. But he is proud of the team of probation officers he will leave behind. “Our job is to help offenders,” he said, “help change their lives.” — Reporter George Diepenbrock can be reached at 832-7144.

City Commission candidates sharpen their messages By Chad Lawhorn

A change in the season could soon result in another increase in gasoline prices. Gas prices, which are hovering around $3.39 per gallon in Lawrence, could rise another 10 cents to 15 cents when gas stations begin switching out winter fuel for summer fuel, said Jim Hanni, executive vice president of AAA Kansas. The summer gasoline blend, which produces less pollution but is more expensive, uses different fuel additives. Before each winter and summer, production slows at refineries as the transition is made. “In some parts of the country, (the switch) has already happened. In other parts it hasn’t happened yet. The general feeling is that it could be a 10-cent to 15-cent shift upwards as blends switch out,” Hanni said. Last month, gas prices in Lawrence were at $3.03 per gallon, and a year ago they were at $2.66. In the past two weeks, prices have stabilized, but that could change as the summer fuel arrives. Hanni doesn’t expect Kansas to hit the $4-per-gallon mark anytime soon, but notes that international factors make prices hard to predict. Along with unrest in Egypt and Libya, the market could be shaken by the earthquake in Japan. Already driving prices upward was an unusually cold winter in the Northern Hemisphere, brisk consumption of oil in China and strong investment in oil futures, Hanni said. To help ease the pain at having to pay high prices at the pump, Hanni offers some advice on how to conserve gas. ● Drive more efficiently: Driving less aggressively also means driving more efficiently, Hanni said. Rapid acceleration and braking uses 33 percent more gas at high speeds and 5 percent more gas while driving in city traffic. For every 5 mph over 60, Hanni said, drivers will use the

With the election about two weeks away, candidates for the Lawrence City Commission at a Monday evening forum became a bit more like boxers trying to pick up the pace. The jabs became a little more frequent and strategically placed as the five candidates participated in a forum hosted by the North

Lawrence Improvement Association. Here’s a glimpse at some of the action: ● Candidate Bob Schumm used his closing statement at the forum — attended by about 30 people — to suggest that several of the candidates represented the status quo and were not forward-thinking enough. “The difference is clear,” said Schumm, who is a downtown restaurant owner

who served on the commission in the late ’70s and early ’90s. “Do you want more of the same or do you want change?” Schumm said that he would be different than some of the other candidates on his staunch support for the living wage, his opposition to “sneaky” special taxing districts, and that he would insist on more leadership from City Hall on the homeless shelter issue.

● Mike Machell, a human resources director and chair of the city’s library board, sought to differentiate himself from Schumm on several occasions. Schumm said he was very interested in an idea to increase the size of the city’s inspection staff to deal with neighborhood blight issues. Machell said he thought the additional dollars for new positions could be better spent and the city could work more closely

with property owners to resolve issues. Machell also differed with Schumm on the issue of island annexations. The city recently approved a pair of island annexations near the Lecompton interchange on the Kansas Turnpike in hopes the area will develop industrially. Schumm told the crowd he generally was opposed to island annexations. Machell Please see CITY, page 2A

Senate panel endorses pair of anti-abortion bills By John Hanna Associated Press Writer

TOPEKA — Two major antiabortion bills cleared a Kansas Senate committee Monday, including a measure that tightens restrictions on abortions after the 21st week of pregnancy based on disputed assertions that the fetus can feel pain. The Judiciary Committee endorsed the bills on separate voice votes, sending them to the Senate for debate, probably later this week. The fetal pain bill is patterned after a law enacted last year in Nebraska. The second measure would require doctors to obtain the written consent of both parents before performing an abortion on a


equivalent of an additional 24 cents a gallon. Another tip is to use cruise control, which allows for a constant speed and saves on gas. ● Maintain your vehicle: For cars that have failed an emission test or are noticeably out of tune, fixing them can improve gas mileage by 4

minor, rewriting a state law that now requires that one parent be notified of an abortion beforehand. Both bills have already passed the House, and new Gov. Sam Brownback, a strong abortion opponent who’s urged legislators to create a “culture of life,” is considered likely to sign them. But abortion opponents have worried that their legislation could stall in the Senate, where members often have been less enthusiastic than their House counterparts about rewriting abortion laws. “We’re very pleased the bills are moving forward,” said Kathy Ostrowski, a lobbyist for the anti-abortion group Kansans for Life. Abortion-rights supporters

have relied on the ability of sympathetic GOP senators to slow down anti-abortion proposals or keep them bottled up in committee, or on Democratic Govs. Kathleen Sebelius and Mark Parkinson to veto objectionable measures. But Brownback, a Republican, took office in January, with large GOP majorities in both legislative chambers, making changes in abortion laws more likely. “Combined, these two bills limit access to abortion care to some of the most vulnerable women in the state,” said Sarah Gillooly, a lobbyist for Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri, which operates an abortion clinic in the Kansas City-area suburb of Overland Park.

Senate to debate KPERS fix By John Hanna Associated Press Writer

TOPEKA — A leader’s plan for tackling the Kansas public pension system’s long-term funding problems is balanced, but it remains part of a longer debate about retirement benefits for teachers and government workers, state senators said Monday. Senate President Steve Morris said his chamber should debate a bill containing the plan this week. The measure would require most state employees to contribute a higher percentage of their salaries to the state pension system, but it would give many a boost in benefits. It contains the most aggressive proposal yet for increasing the state’s annual contribution to public employees’ benefits. The bill sets up an 11-member study commission to consider even more sweeping recommendations for changes in the Kansas Public Employees Retirement System, or KPERS. Those changes could include 401(k)style plans for teachers and government workers, though Morris has been reluctant to move in such a direction. Morris, a Hugoton Republican, is also chairman of a spe-


said such opposition was short-sighted because it didn’t take into account that most industrial development is going to occur on the edge of a community. He said island annexation served the city well when it created the East Hills Business Park decades ago. “I think we would be cutting ourselves off at the knees if we didn’t consider island annexations,” Machell said. ● Sven Alstrom, a Lawrence architect, invoked the idea of special interests playing too large of a role in the race. He suggested the three candidates recently endorsed by the Lawrence

House percent, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. Having properly inflated tires and the right grade of motor oil also helps improve fuel efficiency. ● Plan combined trips: Driving less is a great way to save on gas mileage. Finding people to commute with or combining errands into one trip helps cut down on gas use.



“We were charged by the electorate to cut government,” Brown said. But Democrats and some Republicans on the committee said such a cut, on top of previous ones, would damage crucial services. “I know we are looking for money, but we’re looking for money in all the wrong places,” said Rep.

cial Senate committee on pensions, and the panel endorsed the bill unanimously Friday. KPERS faces a projected $7.7 billion gap between its anticipated long-term revenues and the benefits it has promised public employees over the next few decades. A national report said last year that KPERS assets would cover 59 percent of its long-term liabilities, second-lowest of any state, behind only Illinois. Public employee groups are resisting proposals that require them to make concessions. They strongly oppose efforts to move toward 401(k)-style plans that base retirement benef its on investment earnings and away from their traditional plans that guarantee benefits up front, based on salary and years of experience. The Kansas Organization of State Employees is reserving judgment on the Senate’s plan for a study commission, but Executive Director Jane Carter said the rest of the bill represents the first proposal for addressing the pension system’s problems that it sees as reasonable. “This is a very good effort to solve a really bad problem,” she said. “I think there’s been a good — a diligent —

effort to make sure that we kind of stop pointing fingers.” The study commission would make recommendations to the Legislature by December and give legislators until June 2012 to consider them. Morris’ plan would raise the state’s annual contribution to KPERS by $23 million, starting July 1, 2013. A plan before the House would increase the annual commitment by $10 million, also starting in 2013. About 131,500 teachers and government workers covered by KPERS now pay 4 percent of their salaries to the pension fund. Under Morris’ plan, that would increase to 6 percent by 2016, though those workers would get a small boost in their promised benefits in exchange. Another 20,000 employees, hired after June 2009, already pay 6 percent of their salaries into the pension fund, and they’ve been promised annual cost-of-living adjustments in their benefits after they retire. With Morris’ plan, they’d could keep the annual adjustments and pay 8 percent of their pay into the pension system, or forgo the future adjustments and pay 6 percent into the fund.

Board of Realtors — Machell, Mike Dever and Hugh Carter — were too beholden to the Lawrence real estate industry to effectively serve. He said he believes Lawrence government already suffers from too much favoritism. “I’m asking you to support the candidates not supported by those special interests,” Alstrom said. ● Carter, a Lawrence financial adviser, sought to assure the crowd that he was an independent candidate. “I have no ax to grind, and I have no constituency,” Carter said. “I just want to do what is best for Lawrence.” But Carter did say he disagrees with Alstrom, who insists Lawrence isn’t business-unfriendly. Carter said that he’s certain there are outside business interests that

view the community as being unfriendly, and he said that’s a problem whether the perception is accurate or not. ● Dever, an owner of a Lawrence environmental consulting firm and the lone incumbent in the race, said he was pleased with the record of the past commission. He said the city has produced balanced budgets during bad times, and hasn’t resorted to raising property tax rates. “I feel like we have spent a lot of time cutting the budget without hurting city services,” Dever said. The five candidates are vying for three seats on the commission. The election is April 5.

failed. He then tried to whack another $50 million from public schools, or $75 per student in base state aid. But again that failed. The House plan already cuts the state’s base aid to public schools by $232 per student. Under a Senate committee plan, the cut is $226 per student. Rep. Pete DeGraaf, R-Mulvane, however, was successful with an amendment to cut by 7.5 percent the salaries of state officers and all state workers making more than $100,000 per year. It would also cut pay on a sliding scale

for those between $40,000 and $100,000. Those making $40,000 and less would see no pay cut. DeGraaf also argued in favor of phasing out state funding for Meals on Wheels, saying that would be better left to churches and private enterprise. The Appropriations Committee also cut in half, or $5 million, the state grant to Washburn University, along with $5 million to subsidize air fares in Wichita.

Judge orders Loughner mental exam An Arizona judge has ordered the suspect in Tucson’s shooting rampage to undergo a mental evaluation at a specialized facility in Springfield, Mo., as soon as possible. In a ruling late Monday, U.S. District Judge Larry Burns says that the evaluation will be videotaped and provided to prosecutors and defense attorneys. He also ordered that it be conducted “as soon as possible” and no later than April 29. Prosecutors had argued that Jared Lee Loughner’s exam should be conducted at a so-called medical referral center that provides forensic services and has increased resources, and recommended a facility in Springfield, Miss. Defense attorneys argue that the exam should be done by an outside expert at a Tucson prison. 2 | VIRGINIA

Principal leaving for job in Maize By Mark Fagan

The principal who built the Lawrence school district’s virtual school into the biggest of its kind in the state is leaving for a job in his hometown. Gary Lewis, principal of Lawrence Virtual School, 2145 La., starts July 1 as director of educational outreach in the Maize school district, northwest of Wichita. There, Lewis will be in a new district administrative job, one

responsible for alternative schooling, credit recovery, summer enrichment, summer camps and adult education — developing opportunities for students outside the “traditional setting,” he said. One major facet of such outreach will be starting a virtual school in Maize with plans to go statewide — the same situation he entered in 2004, when he came to Lawrence as the first principal for the new Lawrence Virtual School, then one of eight such operations created out of

state startup financing. “It’s another opportunity,” Lewis said. “It’s a program school. There will be 50 virtual schools in the state next year and, as you know, all of the virtual schools have competed with the other schools since we started. This is no different. It’s just a different level of competition, really.” “It’s being able to take what I’ve learned and take that gift back to my home school district.” The Lawrence Virtual School

Missing teacher’s body found in Japan A Virginia couple are mourning the death of their daughter after learning that her body was found in disaster-ravaged Japan, where she had been teaching English. Taylor Anderson, 24, could be the first known American victim in the Japan disaster as authorities continue the daunting task of finding and identifying almost 13,000 people believed to be missing. Anderson’s family said in a statement that the U.S. Embassy in Japan called them Monday to tell them she was found in Ishinomaki, a city about 240 miles north of Tokyo. Officials with U.S. Embassy in Japan and the State Department could not immediately confirm whether she was the first known U.S. victim in Japan.

Former gov. opens White House bid Former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty pressed toward a White House campaign Monday by formally announcing an exploratory committee with a call for backers to help him “take back our government.” Pawlenty’s announcement of the exploratory committee almost certainly will lead to a full-blown candidacy for the GOP nomination in a field that has been slow to form. The winner would face the daunting task of unseating an incumbent president. “We, the people of the United States, will take back our government. This is our country. Our founding fathers created it,” Pawlenty said in a Hollywoodstyle video that featured a soaring soundtrack. It was posted on his Facebook page Monday afternoon. It was the first definitive statement from a potential 2012 candidate on his or her White House campaign. 4 | LIBYA

Rebels, helped by strikes, try to advance Coalition forces bombarded Libya for a third straight night Monday, targeting the air defenses and forces of Libyan ruler Moammar Gadhafi, stopping his advances and handing some momentum back to the rebels, who were on the verge of defeat just last week. But the rebellion’s more organized military units were still not ready, and the opposition disarray underscored U.S. warnings that a long stalemate could emerge. The air campaign by U.S. and European militaries has unquestionably rearranged the map in Libya and rescued rebels from the immediate threat they faced only days ago of being crushed under a powerful advance by Gadhafi’s forces. The first round of airstrikes smashed a column of regime tanks that had been moving on the rebel capital of Benghazi in the east. Monday night, Libyan state TV said a new round of strikes had begun in the capital, Tripoli, marking the third night of bombardment. President Barack Obama said Monday that “it is U.S. policy that Gadhafi has to go.” But, he said, the international air campaign has a more limited goal, to protect civilians. 5 | WASHINGTON, D.C.

Obama plays down deficits, CBO says A new assessment of President Barack Obama's budget released Friday says the White House underestimates future budget deficits by more than $2 trillion over the upcoming decade. The estimate from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office says that if Obama's February budget submission is enacted into law it would produce deficits totaling $9.5 trillion over 10 years — an average of almost $1 trillion a year. Obama's budget saw deficits totaling $7.2 trillion over the same period. The difference is chiefly because CBO has a less optimistic estimate of how much the government will collect in tax revenues, partly because the administration has rosier economic projections.

Ola Faucher is nothing if not methodical. Precise. Determined. And she’s certainly ready, willing and able to infuse her approach into leadership at the Lawrence school district, where budget cuts continue to mount and the community’s concerns show no sign of abating. “Budget cuts are never easy,” said Faucher, one of nine candidates campaigning for four available seats on the Lawrence school board. “What I would bring is a set of principles that I think are helpful when dealing with budget cuts. … “These principles I have seen enacted, in an organizational setting. They are principles I have experience with and could bring to the process.”

trict during its ongoing budget challenges. District officials are expecting a budget for next year that could start with $3 million less than approved a year earlier, continuing a string of cuts during the past several years that administrators and current board members don’t foresee easing anytime soon. Faucher considers such expectations with a matter-offact approach, the kind that comes with overseeing benefits, wages, recruitment, labor relations and training for 10,000 employees on KU’s main campus and the Edwards Campus in Overland Park. “I have some experience in handling budget cutbacks, and I’m very interested in preserving quality education in that process,” she said. “Long term, I

have a career commitment to the educational process and to the community.”

Handling budget cuts Among the principles Faucher said she would use in addressing the district’s budget needs: ● Transparency. Examine all options for saving money, not just closing or consolidating schools. “The first thing is to make sure that all options are being considered.” ● Communication. Everyone in the district should know what the issues are, what the budget’s condition is and what plans are envisioned for the future. ● Collaboration. All stakeholders in the district need to be included in any efforts to provide input for decisionmakers. Please see SCHOOL, page 5A

Lawrence children who eat free meals through a summer food program soon will be able to take home prepackaged lunches for the weekend, too. The Lawrence school district won approval for a Food Backpack Demonstration project, announced Monday by the USDA. Beginning in June, an estimated 550 youngsters age 18 and younger can take home reusable bags filled with enough milk, fruits, vegetables and entrees to feed them lunch each Saturday and Sunday until school’s back in session for the fall. USDA will pick up the tab: an estimated $100,000 for this summer, plus financing to continue the service again next summer, too. “We know our families are struggling, financially struggling, and hopefully by providing two meals per student our kids will get the nutrition they need throughout the year,” said Paula Murrish, the district’s division director for food services, printing and purchasing. The program will supplement the district’s existing summer food program, one that’s been going for 14 years and provides about 1,200 meals each weekday at sites including the Boys & Girls Club, East Lawrence Recreation Center and South Park Recreation Center. Participating students typically qualify for free and reduced-price lunches during the school year. Organizers will need help packing the bags for the program, which will be expected to begin June 3. “We need volunteers to help put those together,” Murrish said, noting that the prepackaged foods would make matters easier than by working in bulk. “We can put 2,000 together and get a month’s done.” Anyone interested in volunteering may contact Murrish or her colleague Lindsey Morgan, the district’s supervisor and registered dietitian for food services, at 832-5000 or via email: or

Among “America’s Best Nursing Homes 2011� --U.S. News & World Report




ost health sites focus on personal health—what individuals can do to improve their own or their families’ health. But at a local level, health is a community issue. For example, we’re all supposed to get regular checkups. If everyone in a community does not have access to good health care, however, then the advice is useless. Our kids are supposed to eat healthy food, but if school lunch programs provide mac-and-cheese, French fries and few vegetables, then the community is failing those kids. We’re all supposed to exercise, but if a community doesn’t have enough safe places to walk, jog, bike and play outdoors, then how can individuals improve their health? WellCommons focuses on health as a community issue, as well as a personal issue. One of the ways that members of our community support a healthy lifestyle is to sponsor run/ walk events and encourage people to par!cipate.

That’s especially true for teachers and principals. “The people who are closest to the work are often the ones who know best how to cut effectively and preserve quality.” ● Inclusion. All aspects of the budget should be examined for savings, including socalled “sacred cows” such as athletics and extracurricular programming. “I want to look at the districtwide budget. I wouldn’t limit it to elementary school closings and consolidations. We need to look at sacred cows, whatever those might be. We need to look at administration. And, above all, we need to preserve the amount of money per kid, per classroom.” Faucher also wants to strengthen liaisons with the Lawrence City Commission and a variety of business partners, to find ways to properly examine issues related to changing boundaries and potential school closings to “fit the short-term budget crisis into a long-term picture.” Faucher finds talk of an upcoming bond issue — one that would be expected to address renovations, expansions and potential construction of new elementary schools — a bit frustrating, even when officials note that the district’s property-tax rate would be expected to hold steady or even decrease, considering other bond issues going off the books in the next several years. “For the common voter, it’s very difficult for them to understand that you’re going to close schools to save

Did you know money, and then issue bonds to collect money in a different bucket,” she said. “That kind of logic isn’t very intuitive. … Money is made available based on different choices and priorities, and I think we need to carefully consider our choices and priorities.”

Background Faucher has lived in Lawrence since 1967, when she came to KU as an undergraduate. She received a bachelor’s degree in English and French — “I thought I was going to grow up and be a professor” — before going on to earn a master’s in public administration in 1988. Not that it affected her decision to run, but Faucher has followed the board career of incumbent board member Mary Loveland, who is not seeking re-election. “I went to school with Mary,” Faucher said. “We lived in Watkins Scholarship Hall together.” Faucher has had three children educated in the district: two sons, who graduated from Lawrence High School, and a daughter, who graduated from Free State High School. She’s interested in seeing that those in the system now, and those who will enroll during the years ahead, can take advantage of the benefits of education — the benefits she now sees each and every day at work, atop Mount Oread. “The business of education is to make peoples’ minds open and to have them experience the world in a different way,” Faucher said. “It’s a very energizing thing to experience.” — Schools reporter Mark Fagan can be reached at 832-7188.

Life lessons Kudos to local programs seeking to help young people put their best foot forward.


n a world dominated by online communication venues, it can be easy to forget how important a real-life personal impression can be. Whether it’s in a job interview or a social situation, how young people present themselves can be a key element in getting a job, keeping a job or simply leaving a good impression with new friends and associates. That’s why it’s smart not to leave things like dining etiquette and professional attire to chance. Two articles in Monday’s JournalWorld detail how a group at Kansas University and another at Pinnacle Career Institute are trying to help young people put their best foot forward. About 65 KU students recently attended a formal dinner at the Adams Alumni Center to get some tips on how not to embarrass themselves at the table. Among other things, their instructor shared the best, most gracious ways to take your seat, unfold your napkin, pass the sugar and signal to a server that you are finished with your plate. The focus of the event was to help students make a good impression during a business dinner, but all the same skills will come in handy in a variety of social settings, especially when the students are meeting new people. As one business person who attended the dinner noted, it’s possible for etiquette to become too structured, but people being too polite or strict about manners doesn’t seem to be much of a problem in today’s society. The same can be said for people knowing how to dress appropriately for a job interview or other professional situations. What started out as “casual Friday” at many American businesses now has spread to the rest of the week. Dress codes probably don’t need to be as strict as they once were, but employees who look neat and professional still are important to most bosses. A story in Monday’s Go! section told of efforts to show Pinnacle students how they can put together professional outfits without breaking their limited budgets. Those teaching the class put together low-cost outfits by shopping at thrift stores, discount stores and consignment shops. Dressing neatly doesn’t have to cost a lot, and acting politely costs nothing, and yet they have a big payoff both professionally and personally. Young people sometimes look at such things as old-fashioned values. Maybe they are, but as people go through life they understand more and more why it’s important to dress neatly, make eye contact during a conversation and simply be nice to the people they meet. Such actions come more naturally to some people than to others, but the local programs deserve applause for reinforcing those life lessons for their students.


Balancing Mideast security, democracy There’s been a lot of criticism of President Obama for being too slow to support the Mideast’s popular uprisings, especially in Libya. “Feeble,” “incoherent,” and “not showing leadership” are some of the complaints I get from readers from both sides of the political spectrum. At moments, I’ve felt the same: The White House’s Mideast team is weak, his “peace process” diplomacy has failed, his support of prodemocracy rebels is conflicted. Yet, after reflecting on a recent visit to Egypt and conversations with experts in the region, I’ve concluded that no U.S. administra-

Trudy Rubin

Now is the moment when U.S. officials should back democratic Egyptians (and Tunisians) in their push for fair elections and an open constitutional process.” tion could have acted more decisively to aid Arab rebels. Any president would have been constricted by the same factors Obama faced. Let’s start with Libya, where Obama hesitated for weeks to intervene, but has now agreed to a U.N.-backed no-fly zone that aims to stop Col. Moammar Gadhafi from slaughtering his own people. In deciding how to act, Obama was haunted by the legacy of the Iraq war. That ill-conceived conflict and failed occupation turned the entire Middle East, including democrats, against U.S. interventions. Egyptian rebel leaders made that point to me over and over. Imposing democracy from above, à la Iraq, is out. So unilateral U.S. intervention in Libya was out of the question. Moreover, the Pentagon strongly opposed intervention in another Muslim country. U.S. generals feared it would take ground forces to get rid of Gadhafi. Only after the Arab League endorsed a no-fly zone March 12 (and called for United Nations support) could the White House press for a vote by the U.N. Secu-

rity Council. The vote meant — in theory, at least — that Arab countries could provide cover for action by France and Britain, with the United States in a supporting role. Even so, had Gadhafi not been on the verge of committing large-scale atrocities against civilians in full view of the world, Obama might not have concurred. However, the Libya story is but a tragic sideshow. The fate of the region will turn on the results of democratic experiments in Egypt and events in Yemen, Bahrain, and Saudi Arabia. The Obama-ites were slow to support Egyptian rebels, but that may have been a godsend. Much of Egypt’s newfound pride lies with the fact that its rebels made their revolution on their own. Now is the moment when U.S. officials should back democratic Egyptians (and Tunisians) in their push for fair elections and an open constitutional process. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, who just visited both countries, seems to get it. But in their eagerness to avoid interference in Egypt’s politics, U.S. officials may be taking an approach that’s too hands-off. The president’s ambivalence has also stemmed, however, from the fact that we have sharply conflicting interests in the region. In theory, we back political reform in the Middle East, in the hope that Arab states can build democratic institutions in the long run. If they succeed, terrorists may find less fertile ground in the region. Yet in the short run, the Unit-

ed States still faces crucial security threats from Iran and from Islamist terrorists. Our autocratic Arab allies helped us fight these threats. Their demise is likely to create instability in coming months or years that will enable those threats to increase. This conflict underlay the slow support for change in Egypt. Hosni Mubarak’s intelligence service was aggressive in pursuit of Islamist terrorists, and he was a key Sunni ally in containing Shiite Tehran. In the new Egypt (and Tunisia, and Libya, if Gadhafi falls), intelligence services will be curbed. This is a good thing, as the secret police repressed their own people. But it will also make it easier for terrorist networks to regroup in the region. At least in Egypt, the White House can still rely on a close relationship with the army, which will remain a power center for the foreseeable future. In the Arabian Peninsula and the gulf, however, the democracy-vs.-security conflict makes it almost impossible to shape a coherent policy. Gulf rulers like Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah want Obama to forget about democracy and focus on security. Such a choice seemed possible in the last decade: George W. Bush promoted Mideast democracy in his first term; then, when that backfired, he emphasized Mideast security in his second term. But that choice is not possible now. The administration has tried, unsuccessfully, to encourage the president of Yemen to usher in peaceful democratic change. Nei-

ther ruler nor rebels seem able to make the necessary compromises, which means U.S. officials probably can’t save Ali Abdullah Saleh. Yet if he falls, this country, just below Saudi Arabia, may relapse into tribal warfare. This would make it easier for al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula to flourish. In Bahrain, the revolt of a largely Shiite population against its Sunni rulers presents the greatest danger to U.S. interests. This island kingdom is connected by a causeway to Saudi Arabia, whose eastern oil region is dominated by its Shiite minority. The Saudis fear that if Bahrain’s rulers fall, Iran will have the perfect base from which to push Saudi Shiites to rebel. Last week, over Obama’s objections, the Saudi monarch sent troops across the causeway to help crush Bahrain’s rebels. He won’t listen when U.S. officials urge him (and Bahrain’s ruler) to give more representation to their Shiites. Obama’s team says this will head off trouble; Abdullah believes it will create more. The Saudis think Obama is too strong on democracy and weak on security. Obama’s critics slam him for being too weak on democracy — or on security. Few realize he is caught in a historical bind that requires him to be strong on both, even though the two contradict each other — at least in the short term. Bush couldn’t resolve that contradiction; Obama has no choice but to try. — Trudy Rubin is a columnist and editorial board members for the Philadelphia Inquirer.

anyone’s apple cart too awfully bad. He’s thrown so many Democrats under the bus over things like the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare) that it’s all he can do now to keep his approval ratings from plummeting even farther.

Welcome recognition To the editor: What a pleasure it was to open the Sunday March 20 issue of the Lawrence JournalWorld to find several pages devoted to Academic All-star Teams from 2011 and 2001. I read every word. The coverage was good, giving the reader pertinent information and at the same time, making it personal by using frequent quotes. The section on All-stars from 2001 was especially interesting. What pathway has each scholar chosen, and what advice is being offered? The reporter did an excellent job of summarizing each response. Although I don’t begrudge this community’s enthusiasm for sports, I wish there was more recognition of the academically gifted. After all, these are the future leaders we will all depend on to lead our nation and to make improvements in our lives. It’s about time young scholars were given the recognition they so richly deserve. Anna Slemmer, Lawrence

Douglas County prosecutors have filed charges of child sexual exploitation against a 28-year-old Lawrence man. The man faces one count of promoting any performance that includes sexually explicit conduct by a child, which can include providing or transferring images via the Internet, and another count of possessing child pornography. Prosecutors allege the offenses occurred Saturday. Additional details about the allegations were not immediately available Monday, but Lawrence police did say that the suspect was an acquaintance of the victim, who is 12 years old. The man was arrested Saturday in Baldwin City, and a


judge set the suspect’s bond on Monday at $100,000 cash or surety and ordered him not to have contact with the alleged victim or any witnesses in the case. The Journal-World generally does not identify sex crime suspects unless they are convicted.

KU big favorite with favorable draw By Gary Bedore

Those who look at remaining seeds — and only seeds — have to consider Kansas University’s basketball team the overwhelming favorite to emerge as the Southwest Regional’s representative in the 2011 Final Four. The top-seeded Jayhawks must defeat No. 12 seed Richmond at 6:27 p.m. Friday in San Antonio, and the winner of a semifinal between No. 10 seed Florida State and No. 11 Virginia Commonwealth on Sund ay, to a dva n ce to t h e B i g

NCAA Tournament, playing well. Richmond is playing as well as anybody in the country, it looks like.” The Spiders (29-7) of the Atlantic 10 Conference have won nine consecutive games and 16 of 18, including NCAA Tourney victories over No. 5 seed Vanderbilt and No. 13 Morehead State. “Maybe to fans because we are a higher seed,” Morningstar said of some assuming KU’s remaining road to the Final Four will be without any bumps, “but we know as well as anybody you can lose to anybody.

GAME TIME INFO If Kansas defeats Richmond on Friday, it would play at either 1:10 or 4 p.m. on Sunday, according to KU officials. The time likely won’t be released until after KU’s matchup on Friday. Dance from April 2-4 in Houston. “You can’t look at seeds now,” said KU senior guard Brady Morningstar. “As long as a team is playing well, they are very capable. That’s the key to the

ketball, crazy things can happen. We’ve got to stay focused.” No. 2 seed Notre Dame, No. 3 Purdue, No. 4 Louisville, No. 5 Vanderbilt and No. 6 Georgetown all went down in opening week Southwest Regional tourney action. “I don’t consider any of those games upsets,” KU junior Marcus Morris said. “Those teams that are still playing are good. Richmond is a great team. I haven’t seen VCU that much. They have to be some kind of good. They beat Purdue (94-76).

RICHMOND COACH CHRIS MOONEY, LEFT, TALKS with guard Kevin Anderson against Morehead State on Saturday in Denver.

Richmond coach’s name may emerge By Gary Bedore

The Richmond Spiders have one of the most marketable young coaches in the country in 38-year-old Chris Mooney. The Richmond (Va.) TimesDispatch newspaper on Monday wondered whether Mooney might emerge as a candidate for openings at such schools as Georgia Tech, North Carolina State and/or Providence. “After six seasons of developing the UR program, Mooney seems highly likely to draw interest from at least one of those schools (Georgia Tech seems the best fit for the Princeton graduate),” the Times-Dispatch staff wrote in a non-bylined notes item. “Last year, Mooney was contacted by Seton Hall and interviewed at Boston College before signing a new contract at UR that runs through 2016-17. The Spiders, who won the Atlantic 10 Conference championship after earning an NCAA at-large bid last season, lose four senior starters, including two 1,000point scorers (Justin Harper and Dan Geriot) and a 2,000-point scorer (Kevin Anderson), from this season’s team. It’s a logical time for a young, successful coach to move to a job that would double what he makes at UR (his Spiders’ compensation is climbing near $700,000 a year),” the paper reported. ●

1. Penciling in Kansas to the Final Four would be somewhat premature, given the unpredictable nature of the first weekend. With the Jayhawks’ draw, though, anything less than a trip to Houston would likely result in disappointment from the KU fan base.

KU will face No. 12 seed Richmond on Friday in San Antonio (6:27 p.m. on TBS). If I did one thing right this year in my bracket, it was forecasting this matchup. Should the Jayhawks win, they would face the winner of No. 10 Florida State and No. 11 Virginia Commonwealth (not No. 2 Notre Dame or No. 3 Purdue). 2. Craziest ending to a game from first weekend: No. 8 Butler 71, No. 1 Pittsburgh 70 in Washington, D.C. I really hope Butler junior guard Shelvin Mack found the nearest gas station after the game and demanded tickets to the D.C. lottery. He’d probably win the powerball with the luck that was on his side on Saturday.

With Butler ahead by one in the final seconds, Mack inexplicably fouled Gilbert Brown near midcourt — almost 50 feet away from the basket — with 1.4 seconds left. Brown sank his first free throw, but missed the second. Butler’s Matt Howard grabbed the rebound and heaved an awkward-looking, desperation full-court shot, only to be slapped on the arm by Pittsburgh’s Nasir Robinson ... roughly 90 feet away from the basket on a foul that was even more mind-boggling than the one that preceded it. Howard naturally sank the first charity to give Butler a one-point lead and Please see SORRENTINO, page 3B


FSHS grads affected by UNO dumping football By Clark Goble Journal-World Sports Writer

Lisher is looking for a new school to play football

Michael Lisher logged onto his computer around 10:30 p.m. on March 12 to read an e-mail from University of Nebraska-Omaha athletic director Trev Alberts. In short, Alberts informed the students that the UNO administration decided to move the school from Div. II athletics to Div. I.

“Everyone was pretty excited,” said Lisher, a freshman offensive lineman who played at Free State High. “We were talking about playing at cool places. The whole Div. I thing was going to be exciting.” But after two hours of celebrating the move, the football team was rocked by the finer details of the decision. In order to join the Summit

League and move to Div. I in basketball, the school had to cut the football and wrestling programs. Lisher and his teammates found out about the decision through an article posted on the Omaha World-Herald website. Michael immediately called his father, Bob, the football coach at Free State. “Before anybody had a chance to tell the players, we were read-

ing about it on the computer,” Bob said. And now all the people involved with the football program are scrambling to find new homes for the 2011 season. The Lishers aren’t the only Firebirds affected, either. Freshman running back Camren Torneden must also find a place to play.

Princeton offense: Richmond coach Mooney, who played college ball at Princeton, runs his variation of the Princeton offense. Apparently it’s not as methodical as the Princeton style of the past. “I don’t think we run the traditional Princeton offense. There’s a lot of different things that we do,” senior guard Kevin Anderson told the Times-Dispatch. “We run a lot of ball screens within that Princeton offense. The guys that are on the court are so talented that the Princeton offense, it’s just really a name. But it helps us out, gets us moving, gives us an extra advantage over different teams. I mean, that takes difficulty in trying to guard a fast-paced offense like the Princeton offense.” No. 12 seed Richmond, which defeated No. 5 Vanderbilt, wasn’t the only upset winner in Denver last weekend. No. 13 Morehead State beat No. 4 Louisville and No. 11 Gonzaga stopped No. 6 St. John’s. “There’s so much parity in college basketball now,” Mooney told the Times-Dispatch. “There’s a fine line between how good a high-major program can be and how good a really good Atlantic 10 team can be.” Of his team, Mooney told the Times-Dispatch: “You know, this is the NCAA Tournament. That’s what it’s all about. I see a very determined team. I think the guys are determined to keep playing as well as we possibly can.” ●

This, that: Anderson, a 6-0 guard from Atlanta, is second on Richmond’s career scoring list with 2,152 points. John Newman (1983-86) is career leader with 2,383 points. ... VCU is located in Richmond, meaning the NCAA Tournament Sweet 16 has two teams from the same city for the first time since UCLA and USC Please see OMAHA, page 3B in 2007.

Tennessee fires coach Bruce Pearl K N O X V I L L E , T E N N . ( AP ) — Tennessee fired Bruce Pearl after a season in which the coach was charged with unethical conduct for lying to NCAA investigators during a probe into recruiting. In a statement released by the school Monday night, athletic director Mike Hamilton said Tennessee officials made the decision to relieve Pearl of his duties after learning about “additional violations committed on September 14 and in March 2011” by the staff. Tennessee has agreed to pay

Pearl $948,728 worth of salary and benefits as part of his dismissal agreement. In six seasons, Pearl, 51, led the Volunteers to their first No. 1 ranking in 2008 and first NCAA Tournament regional finals appearance, missing out on a trip to the 2010 Final Four by a single point. Pearl acknowledged in a tearful press conference on Sept. 10 that he had given investigators false information when asked about a cookout at his home attended by high school juniors. The NCAA

tract in September. Southeastern Conference Commissioner Mike Slive tacked on an eight-game suspension from conference play. Hamilton and Cheek had voiced support for Pearl after he admitted lying, but last week Hamilton said that Pearl’s future would reviewed once the season ended. Failing to notify Tennessee of another possible recruiting violation that occurred just four days after his tearful press conference may have ultimately caused Pearl to lose the support of his bosses.

has since charged the Tennessee basketball and football programs with a dozen violations. After a 75-45 loss to Michigan on Friday in the second round of the NCAA Tournament, Pearl said that he planned to be accountable for the mistakes he had made but his “goal and desire is to be the basketball coach at Tennessee next year and for a long time.” Tennessee docked his salary by $1.5 million over five years, banned him from off-campus recruiting for a year and terminated his con-




Report: Anderson staying at MU Staff Reports

Spurs 111, Warriors 96 SAN ANTONIO — Manu Ginobili scored 28 points and San Antonio got a scare when Tim Duncan sprained his left ankle in a victory over Golden State on Monday night. Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said Duncan would be out “a while” but didn’t have a timetable.

C O L U M B I A , M O . — Missouri basketball coach Mike Anderson will remain Tigers coach, reported on Monday night. ESPN’s sources confirmed a St. Louis Post-Dispatch report that the school was on the verge of finalizing a new deal with Anderson that will add two years to his current contract. Also, Anderson will receive a bump in salary to nearly $2 million, up from his current pay grade of roughly $1.5 million, the sources told ESPN’s Andy Katz. Anderson was rumored to be a candidate for the opening at Arkansas, where he was an assistant for 17 years. Arkansas fired coach John Pelphrey on March 13. Anderson received a new seven-year deal last April after he interviewed for the Oregon coaching job.

MLB Jury selected for Bonds trial SAN FRANCISCO — Barry Bonds finally sat across the court room Monday from the 12 people who will judge whether or not the greatest home-run hitter of all-time lied about taking drugs. Following a daylong selection process, eight women and four men were picked to hear the federal government’s case against the 46-year-old former San Francisco Giants star, who is charged with four counts of lying to a grand jury and one count of obstruction for testifying in 2003 that he never knowingly used performance-enhancing drugs.

FOOTBALL NFL: No grounds to halt lockout MINNEAPOLIS — The NFL asked a federal judge Monday to keep its lockout in place, saying there are no legal grounds to stop it while accusing the players of trying to manipulate the law with a bogus antitrust lawsuit. The NFL filed its arguments in federal court in St. Paul, Minn., where U.S. District Judge Susan Richard Nelson has scheduled an April 6 hearing on the players’ bid to stop the lockout. The NFL said any decision on a lockout should wait until the National Labor Relations Board rules on an unfair labor practice charge against the now-dissolved players’ union that contends the players failed to negotiate in good faith.

intentionally clanked the second off the rim to end the game. 3. Second-craziest ending to a game from first weekend: No. 5 Arizona 70, No. 4 Texas 69 in Tulsa, Okla. Fitting this game was on TNT, which claims the slogan, ‘We know drama.’ This game was packed with more drama than any Law & Order or Bones episode you’d come across during the station’s daytime programming hours. First question: Should a five-second violation have been called on Texas guard Cory Joseph with 14.5 seconds remaining? Texas led by two before the call gave possession to Arizona, which converted a three-point play to win the game. It really appeared Joseph called timeout around the time the ref’s count hit four. Controversy ensued on the final possession, when UT’s J’Covan Brown drove hard to the bucket and received no foul call. Ditto for Gary Johnson on an attempted gamewinning put-back. Looking at the replay, I didn’t have any problem with the officiating on the final possession. Brown ran into minor contact that probably shouldn’t have warranted a foul, and Johnson was hacked after the buzzer, so that’s irrelevant. Joseph, however, has a legitimate case to prosecute the Wildcats (or the ref) for getting away with March Madness murder. 4. Can anyone make any sense of No. 10 Florida State, No. 11 Marquette, No. 11 VCU and No. 12 Richmond in the Sweet 16? My bracket has 10 Sweet 16 teams left, five Elite Eight teams remaining, and two Final Four teams left. Not ideal. 5. Big 12 outlook after first weekend: It’s all up to Kansas. Texas A&M and Missouri faltered in the round of 64, while Texas and Kansas State couldn’t make it out of the round of 32. This has to be considered an under-performing effort from league squads. Breakdown of Sweet 16 teams, by conference: ACC 3 (Duke, North Carolina, Florida State); Big East 2 (Connecticut, Marquette); Big Ten 2 (Ohio State, Wisconsin); SEC 2 (Florida, Kentucky); Mountain West 2 (San Diego State, BYU); Big 12 1 (Kansas); Pac-10 1 (Arizona); Atlantic 10 1 (Richmond); Colonial Athletic 1 (VCU); Horizon 1 (Butler). 6. Most valuable player of first weekend: Derrick Williams, Arizona. Williams’ 22 points and 10 rebounds against Memphis were impressive, as were the 17 points and nine boards against Texas. But, most importantly, Williams blocked the potential game-

You have to be a good team to beat Purdue.” A quick look at the three other regionals shows a bit more balance, on paper at least. The East Regional teams still standing include seeds No. 1 (Ohio State), 2 (North Carolina), 4 (Kentucky) and 11 (Marquette). The Southeast Regional has seeds 2 (Florida), 3 (BYU), 4 (Wisconsin) and 8 (Butler). And the West regional has seeds 1 (Duke), 2 (San Diego State), 3 (UConn) and 5 (Arizona). “We’ve got a 10, 11, 12 left, but it’s not seeds, it’s matchups,” KU coach Bill Self said of the Southwest Regional contenders. “Those teams can all play. VCU beat Purdue by 18? Florida State by 20 (71-57 over Notre Dame after leading by as many as 23)? Richmond has probably played better than we have so far. “We saw an 11 seed an eyelash away from beating us in the Elite Eight. We know we’ve got to be ready,” added Self, recalling KU’s narrow 5957 victory over Davidson during the Jayhawks’ run to the 2008 national title. KU’s players watched a lot of tourney action on TV in Tulsa last weekend, which helped the Sue Ogrocki/AP Photo Jayhawks gain an even greater respect for the field.

LHS baseball falls to Bishop Kelley J-W Staff Reports

TULSA , O KLA . — Lawrence High’s baseball team fell, 7-3, to Bishop Kelly, the No. 1 team in Oklahoma’s Class 5A, on Monday. The Lions took a 3-0 lead in the top of the fourth inning, but couldn’t sustain it. Bishop Kelley scored two runs in the bottom of the frame and then four in the


The players don’t have much time to enroll at another school. Since the main recruiting period has already passed, most schools have given away most of their scholarship money. To secure anything, the players must move fast. The Lishers tried to set up visits over spring break, which started March 18. MinnesotaDuluth, Sioux Falls (N.D.) and Washburn have already requested Michael’s game tapes, so Bob is confident that his son will find a place to play. He said it’s too bad that Camren and Michael will have to leave Omaha, a city they loved.

fifth inning to secure the victory. “That’s what kind of bummed us out,” LHS coach Brad Stoll said. “We took a lead and we couldn’t sustain that lead. That’s a little disconcerting. But we’ll hopefully learn from that how to not only hold leads, but keep adding to leads.” LHS fell to 0-2. The Lions will travel to

“And then to just have it pulled out from them, and the way it was pulled out from them, it was just pathetic,” said Bob, who played at UNO. Michael and the team commiserated about the move until 5 a.m. the morning of March 13. They talked about finding new places to play all afternoon. At 6 p.m., the athletes at the school met with Alberts and the chancellor, Dr. John Christensen. The school officials discussed the decision with the athletes, explaining that the Summit League does not sanction wrestling and football for competition. Christensen and Alberts also explained the athletic department’s dire financial situation. “At the end of it, the chancellor was talking about how hard of a decision it was and

how hard it was on him,” Michael said. “A couple of the older guys didn’t really like it and they walked out, so we just walked out with them.” Bob said that level of disgust has filtered down to the Lawrence area, which is home to a lot of former UNO football players. He doesn’t have a huge problem with the decision itself, but rather how it was dumped on the kids through the newspaper. The players would like to continue their college careers together, but Michael realizes that probably won’t happen. He’s looking for a school with a good football program and solid academic standing. The UNO players are still able to work out at the school with trainers until the end of the spring semester. “I loved it up here,” Michael said.

Blue Springs South (Mo.) on March 29. “Our goal is to be the best team around at the end of May, and that’s what we’re working toward,” Stoll said. Bishop Kelley 7, Lawrence 3 Lawrence Bishop Kelley

Hochevar to get nod in opener SURPRISE, ARIZ. (AP) — Luke Hochevar was picked Monday to start the Kansas City Royals’ season opener March 31 against the Los Angeles Angels. “I’m looking forward to it,” Hochevar said. “I’m excited about the opportunity to get to do that and also the opportunity to prove myself. I think this year is a big year for me. I’m excited about it.” Hochevar was 6-6 with a 4.81 earned-run average in 18 games last year. He missed 2 1/2 months with a right elbow strain. The right-hander was the first player selected in the 2006 amateur draft. “It’s his time,” Royals manager Ned Yost said. “He’s a homegrown guy. He’s a guy I thought was really making strides last year when he got hurt. I think it’s his time to step up. I think he’s ready to take that next step. “He hasn’t shown me any-

thing that he can’t do this. I came in with an open mind, put them all together and see if anybody stands out. I think we’ve got a real good group of starters. Hoch didn’t do anything that would make me change my thinking.” Yost said Jeff Francis, Kyle Davies and Bruce Chen, in that order, would start the next three games in the opening series against the Angels. Chen led the club with 12 wins last season. “I wanted to break them up righty, lefty, righty, lefty,” Yost said. “Bruce and Francis are comparable. They throw from different arm angles, but they are both command guys and change speeds. I wanted to put a power guy in the midst of the two.” The manager added that Vin Mazzaro would be the team’s fifth starter. He isn’t slated to make his first start until April 16 because of three early off days.

Wife enabling son only encourages dependency Annie’s Mailbox

Dear Annie: I am a high school student. I’ve tried asking others what to do, but no one will listen to me. At school, there are some boys who think it’s funny to call me ugly and fat, and to curse at me. I have no idea what to do. I’ve talked to the counselors at school, but I keep feeling maybe everyone would be better off if I just left. Please help. — Hurt

it. Please talk to your parents, and ask them to speak to the principal and insist that the school intervene. In the meantime, hold your head up, ignore these immature boys, and check out, and for helpful suggestions.

Dear Hurt: This is a textmedical care at the VA. He is book case of bullying, and HIV-positive and uses that as the school counselors the reason he is a loser. But should be doing more to stop when you blow several hundred dollars in three days, there is something wrong. We are at the point of divorce. Any suggestions? — Marriage on the Rocks

— Please e-mail your questions to, or write to Annie’s Mailbox, P.O. Box 118190 Chicago, IL 60611.

Some decades back, folks used to predict that all food preparation would give way to science. Astronauts ate their meals out of tubes, and we were all told that soon our dinners would come in the shape of tiny pills. How convenient. Well, those predictions were wrong — so much Alice Waters under the bridge — and even Wal-Mart’s gone organic. We’ve come to embrace “slow foods” and seasonal eating. Or have we? “Marcel’s Quantum Kitchen” (9 p.m., Syfy) follows chef Marcel Vigneron as he prepares unusual dishes using what has become known as “molecular gastronomy.” From what I can gather, this means flash freezing perfectly good ingredients in vats of liquid nitrogen in order to turn them into something dazzling. For the most part, his routine seems much more about spectacle than cuisine — kind of like the knifewielding waiter at a theme Japanese restaurant chain. After a minute or two, you just want to sit down and eat. And after an episode or two, I was reminded of every mother’s mantra: “Don’t play with your food!” ● New Yorkers-turned-farmers Brent Ridge and Josh Kilmer-Purcell return for a second season of “The Fabulous Beekman Boys” (9 p.m., Planet Green). This season, Josh is getting a tad cranky because he has to go back to Manhattan and toil 80 hours a week in the advertising business just to support the bucolic 19th century farmstead. The hyper-organized Brent (a former staffer for Martha Stewart) establishes a goal that will enable Josh to join him full time. It’s time for the Beekman Farm to clear a million dollars a year. Looking at the guys chasing goats and llamas for a living, it seems difficult to imagine them clearing that financial hurdle. Then again, farming may not be lucrative but making a television show about farming might just do the trick. ● “Best in Film: The Greatest Movies of Our Time” (8 p.m., ABC) offered online voters a chance to choose the best films in a variety of genres as well as their selection for best movie of all time. OK, is it “Our Time”? Or “All Time”? I’m confused. To make this all crystal clear, hosts Tom Bergeron and Cynthia McFadden will guide us through a series of other categories, including “Greatest Screen Kiss,” “Most Romantic Screen Couple” and “Greatest Line.” ● “Big Brian the Fortune Seller” (9 p.m., TruTV) is not the first show to celebrate a high-end real-estate agent. Probably not the last. ● DVDs available today include “Marcus Welby, M.D.: The Best of Season 1.”

Tonight’s other highlights ● Gwyneth Paltrow appears, again, on “Glee” (7 p.m., Fox). ● Mrs. X (Lucy Lawless) takes her best shot at the Powells on “No Ordinary Family” (7 p.m., ABC). ● An officer vanishes on “NCIS: Los Angeles” (8 p.m., CBS). ● It’s time to upgrade daycare centers on “Raising Hope” (8 p.m., Fox). ● A drug kingpin needs a divorce lawyer on “The Good Wife” (9 p.m., CBS). ● Adam confronts his new boss on “Parenthood” (9 p.m., NBC).

Cancer (June 21-July 22) ★★★★★ An innate sense of creativity touches nearly everything you do. Even though others see situations as you see them, they still could be elaborated on. Tonight: Let it all hang out. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) ★★★★ You continue to work on a personal level, not allowing bias to come forward. You'll understand much more as a result of this period of internal reflection. Tonight: Finally, taking it easy. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) ★★★★ Tap into your creativity, and nothing will baffle you for any length of time. Solutions appear if you are willing to get to the root of an issue and understand it. Tonight: Hang out. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) ★★★★ Take a gander. Detach. How much is the material side of life affecting you? Tonight: Do some reading. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) ★★★★ Understanding draws a very different perspective. Keep conversations flowing, even if you might need to do some rescheduling or a situation is turning your life upside down. Tonight: A key person responds to your efforts.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22Dec. 21) ★★★ Take your time, knowing there is no rush. You need to tune in to what you feel and think. Tonight: Much-needed downtime. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) ★★★★★ Your ability to move with the group yet point to basics could be far more important than you realize. Tonight: Zero in on what you want. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) ★★★★★ Honor what is going on among your friends, and get to the bottom of an emotional matter. This could involve someone you look up to or an issue involving responsibility and authority. Tonight: Take the lead. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) ★★★★★ You have a way of looking at issues from both sides. A different perspective might be more important than you realize. Listen to what is being said. Tonight: Move onward. — The astrological forecast should be read for entertainment only. Bigar's Stars is based on the degree of your sun at birth. The sign name is simply a label astrologers put on a set of degrees for convenience. For best results, readers should refer to the dates following each sign.

BIRTHDAYS USA Today founder Allen H. Neuharth is 87. Composer-lyricist Stephen Sondheim is 81. Evangelist broadcaster Pat Robertson is 81. Actor William Shatner is 80. Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, is 77. Actor M. Emmet Wallsh is 76. Actorsinger Jeremy Clyde is 70.



Edited by Timothy E. Parker March 22, 2011

JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS For Tuesday, March 22: This year, you appear extraordinarily grounded. Communication becomes a star issue, which you and others seem to work on. You also might find work more of a burden than in the past. If you are single, the next four months could draw in quite a few suitors. If you are attached, your partner could be a bit "different." Scorpio bottomlines situations. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You'll Have: 5Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult Aries (March 21-April 19) ★★★★★ Approach others with depth, even if you find someone to be remarkably superficial. Perhaps you can help this person make contact on a more profound level. Tonight: Let the good times rock and roll. Taurus (April 20-May 20) ★★★★ You generally are sure of yourself. Allowing people to know less about how you feel could be powerful. Tonight: Say "yes." Gemini (May 21-June 20) ★★★★ Honor who you are in resolving a daily life issue. A partner might want to give his or her input. Tonight: Say little; do more.

Dear Marriage: Some parents believe that enabling their children is a way to help them. It is not. It enfeebles them and makes them dependent. However, unless you can convince your wife of this, the situation will not change. Your choice is to give up or walk away. If you want to see a counselor for help with that decision, your wife does not need to go with you. We also suggest you urge your stepson to take advantage of the counseling and medical services offered through the VA.

Dear Annie: I am having a problem and don’t know what to do. Please do not suggest counseling, because I tried, and my wife won’t even consider it. We married 17 years ago. Both of us were in our mid50s. She had two grown children, and I had none. There wasn’t supposed to be any baggage coming into this marriage. However, a few months after our wedding, her son’s wife kicked him out for cheating — with both men and women. For the past 10 years, we have had nothing but problems with this guy. He is a drunken bum, and I suspect he is doing hard drugs now. He has had a few jobs, none for very long. His massive temper gets him fired every time. We are retired on Social Security and my military pension. For some reason, this 51-year-old guy thinks I should support him. He lives in my travel trailer and draws food stamps. He takes enough odd jobs to pay for his bad habits, but regardless of how much he earns, he is back over here needing money for gas or groceries, and of course, Mommy will not say no. She enables him and makes excuses for everything he does. As a result, we fight continuously. My stepson is eligible for
