O’Neal drops push to split K.C. in Congress map By John Hanna Associated Press

TOPEKA — The speaker of the Kansas House on Wednesday dropped his push for a redistricting plan that splits Kansas City between two congressional dis-


tricts, even though his chamber had already rejected a bipartisan bill keeping the area in one district. Speaker Mike O’Neal, a Hutchinson Republican, said the emergence of an alternative plan showed that too many legislators want to

The House voted 76-48 against the alternative plan, but O’Neal attributed its defeat to other issues. It dramatically altered congressional district lines in south-central and southeast Kansas, and it left freshman U.S. Rep. Mike Pompeo, a

Wichita Republican, with a slightly more Democratic district. O’Neal said the House Redistricting Committee will meet next week to draft a new plan, keeping the Kansas Please see MAP, page 2A

keep the Kansas City area in a single district. O’Neal’s plan, which would have moved urban neighborhoods into a district with rural communities more than 400 miles away, drew criticism from Kansas City and western Kansas officials alike.

Brownback plan passed after being voted down

By Scott Rothschild

TOPEKA — The Kansas Senate on Wednesday pulled a U-turn to drive the Legislature closer to cutting taxes, and Gov. Sam Brownback is ready to step on the gas. “We are one step closer to hitting the accelerator on the emerging Kansas economy,” Brownback said. “The Senate took an important step towards growing the Kansas economy and creating new jobs.” Democrats, however, said Brownback’s tax cutting plan was reckless and would hurt middle-class families and public schools. Brownback’s praise

c a m e a f t e r Republ i c a n leaders in the S e n ate, in a stunBrownback n i n g reversal, passed a tax bill just two hours after voting it down. Senate President Steve Morris, R-Hugoton, voted against the tax measure, which initially stalled on a 20-20 vote, and then for it as it passed, 29-11. “There was a lot of interest in making sure we had something to go to conference,” Morris said, referring to a House-Senate conference committee that will work on taxes.

Asked whether Brownback, a Republican, leaned on senators to have the vote reconsidered, Morris declined to answer. Sherriene Jones-Sontag, a spokeswoman for Brownback, said the governor and his staff spoke to several senators between the two votes. Senate Minority Leader Anthony Hensley, D-Topeka, said Brownback “resorted to backdoor arm-twisting to get his tax plan through the Senate this morning.” House Minority Leader Paul Davis, DLawrence, said the Brownback-Senate tax plan was fiscally irresponsible.

“We can’t afford to begin restoring the hundreds of millions in cuts we’ve made to public schools if we’re bleeding $800 million a year in revenue for tax cuts that disproportionately benefit the wealthy. This puts us on a collision course with either devastating budget deficits or even more crippling budget cuts,” Davis said.

Brownback wants to cut the top state income tax rates and eliminate income taxes for 191,000 partnerships, sole proprietorships and other businesses. His plan would also do away with deductions and credits and keep in place the current 6.3 percent state sales tax. But on Tuesday as the Senate worked on the plan, it voted to lower the state sales tax as currently scheduled to 5.7 percent on July 1, 2013, and put back in the deductions, such as mortgage interest and charitable contribu-


tions. Supporters of Brownback said the opposition was trying to kill the governor’s plan through the amendments. Initially, it looked like that happened. As the Senate reconvened Wednesday morning, all eight Senate Democrats and 12 of the Senate’s 32 Republicans, opposed the final product. State Sen. Pete Brungardt, R-Salina, voted against it, saying it “does not fund state government” because it would cut $3.7 billion over five years. 609 N.H. (offices) • 645 N.H.

BRIEFLY Driver faces multiple charges in chase case Police early Wednesday arrested a 20-year-old Anadarko, Okla., man who was accused of driving away from a traffic stop, striking another vehicle and then running from police on foot. Kim Murphree, a Lawrence police spokeswoman, said the incident began when officers were called at 3:35 a.m. to a fight at the Presto station, 602 W. Ninth St. An officer noticed a man standing next to the building. Another man was in a vehicle, and he started to drive away. The officer tried to stop the vehicle, but the suspect did not stop. Near Sixth and Ohio streets, the vehicle struck a white Jeep Liberty. The driver, Ryan James Kingfisher, reportedly ran from police, who arrested him near a parking lot in the 700 block of Vermont Street. Capt. Paul Fellers said an officer used a Taser to subdue Kingfisher. According to Douglas County Jail records, Kingfisher was arrested on charges of disorderly conduct, interfering with duties of an officer, attempting to elude police, DUI, tampering with an ignition interlock device, failing to report an accident, driving while suspended and driving without proof of insurance. He was released on $1,300 bond and given notice to appear in municipal court on April 23.

It currently is a program under East Central Kansas Economic Opportunity Corp., a nonprofit community action agency that serves low-income residents through a variety of services.

Just Food, a Douglas County food program, is applying to become its own nonprofit organization and will be moving out from under another nonprofit, East Central Kansas Economic Opportunity Corp. Forrest Swall, vice chairman of the Just Food advisory board, expects the move to be complete within six months. He said it would eliminate the bureaucratic red tape the organization often faces when trying to implement changes.

“As an independent organization, we will be in a position to make decisions and determine essentially the development and future of the program,” Swall said. “We think we will be in a position to more effectively meet the needs of people who have nutritional needs that are hungry in Douglas County.” In 2011, Just Food distributed $676,503 worth of food, or about 880,000 meals, for free to 84,699 people, a 21 percent increase

Kansas Senate passes Food proposed $14.2B budget


By John Milburn Associated Press

TOPEKA — The Kansas Senate approved a proposed $14.2 billion state budget on Wednesday that’s slightly more generous than one proposed by Gov. Sam Brownback. Senators voted 39-1 to send the measure to the House after it was amended to include language from a House committee restricting abortion training at Kansas University Medical Center. The bill cuts overall spending by almost 4 percent, or $572 million, during the fiscal year that begins July 1. But it includes money for social service programs that Brownback didn’t include in his spending recommenda-

tions, with an additional $16 million for children’s programs and nearly $9 million to boost the pay of state workers whose salaries are below the pay for people with similar private sector jobs. “We worked very hard to stick with the governor’s financial levels because our revenues haven’t totally recovered,” said Senate Ways and Means Chairwoman Carolyn McGinn, a Sedgwick Republican. The plan would leave about $460 million in cash reserves at the end of June 2013. However, McGinn said that figure didn’t factor in $50 million in additional spending for public schools or $45 million aid to cities and counties to reduce property taxes that would have to come from reserves unless legislators

reduce funding for other programs to offset the increases. The abortion amendment borrows from a bill that cleared the House Federal and State Affairs Committee that would require students training to become doctors to use nonstate facilities to learn how to perform abortions. It also prohibits the use of any state tax dollars for the training. The amendment’s supporters said it will put decisions about training in the hands of the medical center administration, working within parameters set forth by legislators. At issue is whether an outright ban on abortion training would compromise the medical center’s accreditation.

Dole honored for practicing lost art of compromise By Laurie Kellman Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Once upon a time in Congress, compromise between Republicans and Democrats was the norm. And a witty GOP senator named Bob Dole was one of the best practitioners of the art, preferably on a West-facing balcony of the Capitol where he could get sun on his face while lawmaking. He succeeded an affable storyteller and able dealmaker named Howard Baker, who likened running the Senate to herding cats. Nearly 16 years after Dole left the Senate to run for president, the balcony is named for him, and the Senate is even more unruly than Baker described. The pair was feted in Washington for their combined century of service and for practicing a thing called bipartisanship that seems lost, for now. “All I know is I don’t have to make a speech,” Dole, 88, said in a telephone interview before the festivities. He said he’s feeling a bit better lately but still suffers from chronic back pain. Plenty of others did, including the current crop of partisan warriors who insisted that under their leadership, the polarized Senate was working the same way it always has and they’re doing the best they can. But others in the Bipartisan Policy Center, which Dole and Baker helped found, suggested that the two encouraged discussion instead of the parliamentary gamesmanship that rules the chamber now. “I think the Senate operated more effectively then than it does today,” said Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., one of the hosts of the tribute. “But I don’t think it would make much to change it today. It would take a change of behavior rather than a change of rules.” The Bipartisan Policy Center’s mission statement says it is dedicated to “great moments in compromise by encouraging civil, respectable political discourse between the political parties.” That sounds quaint after more than a year of divided government mired in standoffs over the nation’s troubled economy and, lately,


The House approved that 68-52, sending the bill back to the Senate. “It’s very important that senators have to vote on this,” Knox said. Several opponents of the bill, however, disagreed. State Rep. Barbara Bal-

Just Food provides food through its pantry, and it also stores and provides food for 36 community partners, such as The Salvation Army, Heartland Community Health Center and the Lawrence Community Shelter. The food program has an annual budget of about $448,000. That pays for two employees, rent, utilities, transportation and other necessities. It has about 60 volunteers who help write grants, enter data, store food and help clients.

Lots of growth Just Food has grown by leaps and bounds since its inception in 2005, when it was just a concept among a handful of community leaders. At first, food was stored and distributed from the ECKAN office inside the United Way of Douglas County building. In 2009, ECKAN received a one-year $250,000 grant from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to start a full-fledged food program. In October 2009, it began operating out of its current location. Once the grant expired, the program then was staying afloat with a $50,000 Community Service Block Grant and approximately $1,700 in community donations per month. Last year, the advisory board held a community fundraising campaign to raise $100,000 to keep the doors open; it was successful. Last summer, Jeremy Farmer was hired as fulltime executive director, replacing a part-time position. “We are really excited

ECKAN partnership Richard Jackson, CEO of ECKAN, praised the advisory board and Douglas County community for its efforts. “They basically rolled up their sleeves and did some things that were needed to make the program successful and hopefully become self-sustaining,” he said. “They did a lot of the work behind the scenes, recruiting volunteers and soliciting do-

nations and funds from the community. I think the community should be proud of its efforts, and it’s one that can be showcased to others.” Jackson said ECKAN will continue to partner with Just Food and help serve those in need. ECKAN is a community action agency that serves low-income residents through a variety of programs: housing, case management, youth, and food. Jackson said it was funded in 1966 and grew out of the war on poverty. It receives mostly federal funding, but a little from the state and private donations. It serves 13 counties, including Douglas County. “We do a little of everything to try to meet the needs of individuals who need some kind of assistance,” Jackson said. “We put a lot of emphasis on case management, working with individuals to become self-sufficient so they are no longer dependent on federal or state funding.” — Health reporter Karrey Britt can be reached at 832-7190.

FORMER U.S. SENATE MAJORITY LEADERS Bob Dole, right, and Howard Baker sit next to the stage as Vice President Joe Biden, not seen, speaks at “A Century of Service” honoring them Wednesday at Mellon Auditorium in Washington.

Dole: Santorum must consider quitting WASHINGTON — Former Sen. Bob Dole of Kansas says GOP presidential hopeful Rick Santorum is “getting close to the point” where he’ll have to decide whether to stay in the race for the nomination or drop out. In a telephone interview Wednesday, Dole told The Associated Press he was speaking from the experience of staying in

the 1988 GOP nomination fight too long. Dole said: “As much as you don’t want to do it, sometimes you have to face reality.” Dole is a supporter of GOP front-runner Mitt Romney. He says Romney’s lead in GOP convention delegates and his handy victory Tuesday in the Illinois primary make overtaking him a long shot for Santorum.

a selection of long-settled social issues like access to contraception and the Violence Against Women Act. So polarized is Congress in the 2012 election year that centrists like Maine Republican Olympia Snowe and Nebraska Democrat Ben Nelson are fleeing. In fact, Dole and Baker, both former presidential candidates and veterans of World War II, were at the center of such historic moments of bipartisanship. They could each be conciliators and fierce partisans. Baker, 86, served in the Senate from 1967 to 1985 and was the senior Republican on the congressional panel investigating Watergate. He is famous for asking the question of his fellow Republicans: “What did the president know, and when did he know it?” His calm demeanor was considered key to passage of the 1978 Panama Canal Treaty, which called for the gradual transfer of the canal to Panama. He served as Senate majority leader from 1981 to 1985.

The equally steady and acerbic Dole was his successor as leader of the Senate Republicans. He developed a reputation in the Senate of valuing thoughtful discussion over incivility in lawmaking, and, wounded in World War II, became a leading advocate for veterans and disabled Americans generally. He was a key to passing the Americans With Disabilities Act in 1990. Wednesday night, the two showed off the humor they used to grease the wheels of negotiations. “Once you leave politics, you’re approval rating goes straight up,” said Dole, seated next to his wife Elizabeth, also a former senator. “People write you letters saying, “I never liked you, you so-and-so, while you were in the Senate, but now I think you’re a pretty good guy. And please send me an autographed pictureof Elizabeth.” In a video tribute, former Sen. Alan Simpson, R-Wyo. noted: “That’s what’s missing now. There’s no humor.”

lard, D-Lawrence, said, “College campuses do not need weapons.” The bill would allow concealed-carry permit holders to bring their weapons into public buildings, such as university classrooms, city halls and other such structures if those buildings do not have devices like metal detectors designed to detect illegal weapons. During House debate

on the measure earlier this month, there was a provision put in the House bill that would allow universities to exempt themselves but then have to reconsider that decision after four years. Another amendment exempted hospitals, such as Kansas University Hospital. — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

But Kansas Democratic Party attorney Joe Sandler says the party’s delegate selection rules only recognize candidates who have demonstrated a commitment to the party’s goals and objectives.

GOP race lining up for Romney By David Espo Associated Press

WASHINGTON — It hasn’t been pretty, but the Republican establishment, the delegate math, the money and more are increasingly lining up in Mitt Romney’s favor in the long and grinding race for the party’s presidential nomination. The race will go on. Romney’s most dogged rival, Rick Santorum, is all but certain to claim more victories before the primary season ends. And an astonishing admission Wednesday by one of Romney’s top aides — that primary-season policy positions may be no more lasting than squiggles on a child’s Etch A Sketch drawing toy — will hardly reassure Republicans skeptical about his commitment to the cause of conservatism. “Everything changes” for the fall campaign, said Eric Fehrnstrom, prompting Romney himself to try to limit the political damage. “The policies and the positions are the same,” he said. Still, Romney’s Illinois primary victory provided fresh evidence of electoral strength, produced a big delegate haul and paid an overnight dividend in the form of an endorsement from Jeb Bush. “Now is the time for Republicans to unite behind Governor Romney and take our message of fiscal conservatism and job creation to all voters this fall,” said the former Florida governor, the man most often mentioned as a last-minute savior for the party, who could swoop

ANALYSIS into a deadlocked convention and emerge with the nomination. Former Sen. Bob Dole, a Romney supporter, summarized Santorum’s position from the point of view of a man who lost his first try for the nomination before winning on the second. “In every race, Romney is going to pick up delegates. Looking back at my race in 1988 ... I should have gotten out, but I just kept going out there,” Dole said. “When you’re out of money and you don’t have the organization to buy TV, you have to take a hard look at it.” Much has changed since Dole last ran for the White House in 1996, including the emergence of super PACs that are allowed to raise money in unlimited amounts. That, too, is working to Romney’s advantage.

So far, he has benefited from more than $32 million in television ads from Restore Our Future, the entity that played the major role in wiping out Newt Gingrich with attack ads in the days before the Iowa caucuses and again in the Florida primary. More recently it has turned its attention to Santorum. For comparison purposes, the $32 million is more money than Santorum, Gingrich and Ron Paul plus super PACs supporting them have spent combined on television, and may be the reason Romney has been able to avoid dipping into his own personal fortune so far in the campaign. Additionally, campaign finance reports released Tuesday showed that big donors to a GOP organization founded by political strategist Karl Rove have boosted their financial support for the Romney-

aligned super PAC in recent months. It’s taken months, far longer than anticipated, for Romney to begin to take charge of a race that he began with overwhelming financial and organizational advantages. His record as a Massachusetts governor, particularly his embrace of a requirement for state residents to purchase health insurance, has made it hard for him to win over doubting conservatives in the South and elsewhere. “Ann drives a couple of Cadillacs,” he blurted out in one appearance, one of several utterances that suggest he doesn’t quite understand the financial woes facing millions of Americans in the wake of the worst recession in decades. Yet in Illinois, he won more votes than Santorum and Gingrich put together, a far better showing than the grudging victories he eked out in Michigan and Ohio over the previous few weeks. Romney’s delegate haul was even more impressive. He picked up 41, to 10 for his chief rival. That was hours after an aide to Santorum went on television to predict that the former Pennsylvania senator would win between 24 and 30. There were more embarrassing moments for the former senator’s campaign. The candidate himself backpedaled after saying on Monday that the economy wasn’t the main issue of the campaign. “Occasionally you say some things where you wish you had a do-over,” he said later.

Obama, GOP vie for upper hand on energy By Ken Thomas Associated Press

MALJAMAR, N.M. — Wooing a nation of increasingly angry motorists, President Barack Obama and his Republican rivals are all plunging into gas-pump politics, seeking the upper hand as energy becomes a driving issue in the election campaign. The president is defending his energy agenda this week, traveling Wednesday to a solar panel plant in Nevada and oil and gas fields in New Mexico and the site of a future oil pipeline in Oklahoma that the White House is promising to accelerate. At the same time, GOP opponents from front-runner Mitt Romney on down are vigorously accusing him of stifling domestic production and betting on foolhardy alternative en-

ergy methods over traditional oil drilling. W i t h gasoline reaching $3.86 a gal- Obama lon in the U.S. and apparently heading higher, the public is impatient for Obama — or someone in his place — to do something about it. In truth, a president has little direct control over gas prices, which have risen more than 50 cents a gallon since January in response to a standoff over Iran’s nuclear program that has threatened to disrupt Middle East oil supplies. Well aware of Republicans’ criticism, Obama’s advisers argue that voters take a sophisticated view toward energy and think about it as a problem demanding long-term

answers. They know that talk about future solutions may not satisfy people as they endure high prices, but they’re betting that voters will side with the candidate they trust the most to deal with the issue — and they’re determined that that will be Obama. “We’re drilling all over the place,” Obama said in Maljamar, N.M., in a field dotted with oil rigs. Polls show less certainty about it all. One survey this month by CBS News and The New York Times found that 54 percent of Americans felt the price of gasoline was something a president could do a lot about while 36 percent said it was beyond his control. And a recent Washington Post/ABC poll found 50 percent thought the Obama administration could reasonably do something to bring down gas prices,

while 45 percent felt the recent rapid rise has been beyond White House control. Obama has repeatedly argued that drilling for new oil alone will not solve the nation’s energy woes or reduce gas prices. He accuses Republicans of claiming they can “wave a magic wand” to return to the days of cheap gas, and on Wednesday, he mocked them for having a “lack of imagination” about alternative energy. “You’d think that everybody would be supportive of solar power,” Obama said from the Copper Mountain Solar 1 facility in Nevada, the largest plant of its kind in the country, with nearly 1 million solar panels. “And yet if some politicians had their way, there won’t be any more public investment in solar energy. There won’t be as many new jobs.”


Study: Move-in before marriage no longer predicts divorce By Mike Stobbe Associated Press

ATLANTA — Nearly half of first marriages break up within 20 years, a new government study finds. With those odds, you might wonder: Would we be better off living together first? The new research, part of a marriage survey of 22,000 men and women, suggests times have changed from the days when living together signaled poor chances for a successful marriage later. “It’s not playing as big a role in predicting divorce as it used to,” said Casey Copen, lead author of the study. Living together before marriage has been a long-growing trend. In the late 1960s, only about 10 percent of U.S. couples moved in together first, and they ended up with higher divorce rates. Today, about 60 percent of couples live together before they first marry. “It’s becoming so common, it’s not surprising it no longer negatively affects marital stability,” said Wendy Manning, co-director of the National Center for Family & Marriage Research at Bowling Green State University in Ohio. Researchers with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention looked for trends in first marriages. They in-

terviewed men and women ages 15 to 44 during the years 2006 to 2010. About 40 percent were married. The study found those who were engaged and living together before the wedding were about as likely to have marriages that lasted 15 years as couples who hadn’t lived together. But what about the couples who were living together but weren’t engaged? The new study found marriage was less likely to survive to the 10- and 15-year mark among couples who weren’t engaged when they lived together — findings similar to earlier research. For example, for women, there was about a 60 percent likelihood a marriage would survive 15 years if the couple either hadn’t lived together before the wedding or were engaged while they were sharing the same living space. But if no firm marriage commitment was made while she and her boyfriend were living together, the likelihood the marriage would last 15 years fell to 53 percent. The numbers were similar for men. Potential explanations include laxer attitudes about commitment, lower education levels or family histories that made these couples more pessimistic about marriage, Copen said.

Town longs for relief from mysterious booms By Carrie Antlfinger and Dinesh Ramde Associated Press

CLINTONVILLE, WIS. — Sleepless families in a small Wisconsin town longed for quiet Wednesday after mysterious booming noises over the past few nights roused them from bed and sent residents into the street — sometimes still in pajamas. The strange disturbance sounds like distant thunder, fireworks or someone slamming a heavy door. At first, many people were amused or merely curious. But after three restless nights, aggravation is mounting. And some folks are considering leaving town until investigators determine the source of the racket. “My husband thought it was cool, but I don’t think so. This is not a joke,” said Jolene Van Beek, who awoke early Sunday to a loud boom that shook her house. “I don’t know what it is, but I just want it to stop.”

— Jolene Van Beek, Clintonville, Wis., resident The booming in Clintonville continued Monday and Tuesday nights and into Wednesday morning, eventually prompting Van Beek to take her three sons to her father’s home, 10 minutes away, so they could get some uninterrupted sleep. There have been no reports of injury, despite some residents saying they could feel the ground roll beneath their feet. City officials say they have investigated every possible human cause. They checked water, sewer and gas lines, contacted the military about any exercises in the area, reviewed permits for mining explosives and inspected a dam next to city hall. They even tested methane levels at the landfill in case

Administrator Lisa Kuss said. The city is also investigating geological causes. Officials plan to bring in vibration-detection devices to try to determine the epicenter of any underground activity. Authorities set up audio and video equipment overnight but didn’t capture any evidence of shaking or booming despite at least one loud noise about 5 a.m. Wednesday, Kuss said. About 300 people attended a public meeting Wednesday night in a local high school auditorium to get an update on the situation. Kuss assured residents that officials are doing everything they can to determine the source of the booming. Sharon Binger said the disturbance has left cracks in her basement walls and floor, and that they’re getting worse. She said her

said, demanding answers from officials at the meeting. “There is something else going on.” Kuss urged Binger to write down when the cracks occurred and promised to send officials to the woman’s home to look over the damage. Debby Ernst has not heard the sound or felt the tremors but said she is still considering going elsewhere until the mystery is solved. “It worries me. I’m scared,” Ernst, a gas station cashier, said in a phone interview. “Who’s to say it ain’t going to get worse?” However, a local scientist said nothing has surfaced that suggests townspeople should be afraid. Steve Dutch, a geologist at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, said that the ground beneath them is solid and that there are no known earthquake fault lines in the area.

Police press besieged gunman to surrender Was Fla. shooter a By Johanna Decorse and Sarah DiLorenzo Associated Press

TOULOUSE, FRANCE — Riot police set off explosions outside an apartment building early today in an effort to force the surrender of a gunman who boasted of bringing France “to its knees” with an al-Qaida-linked terror spree that killed seven people. Hundreds of heavily armed police, some in body armor, surrounded the fivestory building in Toulouse where the 24-year-old suspect, Mohamed Merah, had been holed up since the predawn hours of Wednesday. As midnight approached, three explosions were heard, and orange flashes lit up the night sky near the building. An Interior Ministry official said the suspect had gone back on a previous pledge to turn himself in — and that police blew up the shutters outside the apartment window to pressure him to surrender. Sporadic blasts and bursts

We are waiting,” the Toulouse prosecutor, Michel Valet, told The Associated Press. Authorities said the shooter, a French citizen of Algerian descent, had been to Afghanistan and Pakistan, where he claimed to have received training from al-Qaida. They said he told negotiators he killed a rabbi

and three young children at a Jewish school on Monday and three French paratroopers last week to avenge the deaths of Palestinian children and to protest the French army’s involvement in Afghanistan, as well as a government ban last year on facecovering Islamic veils. “He has no regrets, except not having more time to kill more people, and he boasts that he has brought France to its knees,” Paris Prosecutor Francois Mo-

lins told a news conference. French authorities — like others in Europe — have long been concerned about “lone-wolf” attacks by young, Internet-savvy militants who self-radicalize online since they are harder to find and track. Still, it was the first time a radical Islamic motive has been ascribed to killings in France in years. Merah espoused a radical brand of Islam and had been to the AfghanistanPakistan region twice and to the Pakistani militant stronghold of Waziristan for training, Molins said. He said the suspect had plans to kill another soldier, prompting the police raid. The standoff began after a police attempt about 3 a.m. Wednesday to detain Merah erupted into a firefight. Two police were wounded, triggering onand-off negotiations with the suspect that lasted into the night. As darkness fell, police cut electricity and gas to the building, then quietly closed in to wait out the suspect.

Clue could help predict heart attacks By Lauran Neergaard Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Too often, people pass a cardiac checkup only to collapse with a heart attack days later. Now scientists have found a clue that one day may help doctors determine if a heart attack is imminent, in hopes of preventing it. Most heart attacks happen when fatty deposits in an artery burst open, and a blood clot then forms to seal the break. If the clot is too big, it blocks off blood flow. The problem: Today’s best tests can’t predict when that’s about to happen. “We don’t have a way to get at whether an artery’s going to crack, the precur-

sor to a heart attack,” said Dr. Eric Topol, director of California’s Scripps Translational Science Institute. Wednesday, Scripps researchers reported a new lead — by searching people’s blood for cells that appear to flake off the lining of a HEALTH severely diseased artery. Topol’s team measured high levels of those cells, deformed ones, floating in the blood of 50 people who’d just had a heart attack. The research is reported in the journal Science Translational Medicine. Next, Topol said his

team soon will begin needed studies to learn how early those cells might appear before a heart attack, and if spotting them could allow use of clotpreventing drugs to ward off damage. Some San Diego emergency rooms will study an experimental blood test with chest-pain sufferers whose standard exams found no evidence of a heart attack, he said. Don’t expect a test to predict heart attacks any time soon — a lot more research is needed, caution heart specialists not involved with the study. But they’re intrigued. “This study is pretty exciting,” said Dr. Douglas Zipes of Indiana Univer-

Hot weather bodes ill for ski resorts By Clarke Canfield Associated Press

NEWRY, MAINE — Skiers stripped down to shorts and bikini tops to keep cool Wednesday as they got in a few final sun-drenched, slushy runs, bidding what could be an early goodbye to a season that has disappointed all around. An unprecedented spell of record temperatures soaring into the 80s had New England skiers dodging dirt patches and exposed rocks as melting snow spelled potentially millions in losses for those who make their living off winter tourism and sports. “It’s like ‘swinter’ — summer and winter combined,” said 15-year-old Allie Ward, who wore only a bikini and boots during a break from skiing at Sunday River. She was joined by a sunburned friend, both of North Shore in Canada’s Prince Edward Island. A year after ski resorts reported a record 60.5 million visits, the season opened last year with early snow and high expectations. But optimism was short-lived as Christmas arrived with little or none in many parts of the country. And the trend carried through the winter, with a few notable exceptions, like parts of Alaska.

Only a few of Maine’s 22 ski areas were open Wednesday. Sugarloaf, the state’s tallest ski mountain, tried to put a good face on the warm temperatures, tweeting this week about sun-drenched “slushy goodness” on its slopes. Colorado Ski Country USA estimated that the number of visits at its resorts in the nation’s biggest skiing state is down 7.4 percent so far this season, spokeswoman Jennifer Rudolph said Wednesday from Denver. That represents losses of millions of dollars in revenue for ski resorts, retail stores and hotels. Cross-country skiing and snowmobiling also suffered. In the end, the December-to-February period was the fourth-warmest in the continental U.S., and was one of the three warmest on record from Washington, D.C., to Caribou, Maine, said Jessica Rennells, of the Northeast Regional Climate Center at Cornell University in Ithaca, N.Y. This week, the warmth reached epic proportions. In Bangor in central Maine, the temperature surged to 83 degrees on Wednesday, smashing the old record of 64.

It suggests those cells are harmed “not just in the minutes prior” to a heart attack, he said, “but probably hours, maybe even days” earlier. “It’s a neat, provocative first step,” added Dr. William C. Little, cardiology chief at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center. “But it is not a biomarker ready for prime time.” About 935,000 people in the U.S. have a heart attack every year, according to government figures. Doctors can tell who’s at risk: People with high blood pressure and cholesterol, who smoke, have diabetes, are overweight or sedentary.

vigilante or good neighbor?

By Mike Schneider Associated Press

SANFORD, FLA. — George Zimmerman once took criminal justice classes at the community college and was practically a one-man neighborhood watch in his gated part of town, calling police close to 50 times over the past eight years to report such things as slowdriving vehicles, strangers loitering in the neighborhood and open garages. Now, suddenly, people are wondering if the 28-year-old Zimmerman is an earnest if somewhat zealous young man who was just looking out for his neighborhood, or a Zimmerman wannabe cop who tried to take justice into his own hands. He has been at the center of a growing furor over vigilantism, self-defense and racial profiling since he shot and killed an unarmed black teenager who was walking through his neighborhood Feb. 26 carrying only a bag of Skittles and an iced tea. Zimmerman, a lightskinned Hispanic, has claimed self-defense in the slaying of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin and has not been charged, but many black leaders are demanding his arrest, and state and federal authorities are investigating. Florida’s Stand Your Ground law on selfdefense gives people wide latitude to use deadly force. Attorneys for Martin’s parents say Zimmerman is a “loose cannon.” “He’s a wannabe police officer,” lawyer Benjamin Crump said. “Why did he have a gun?”

But some neighbors welcomed his vigilance, at least before the shooting. Samantha Leigh Hamilton, an auto-dealership employee who has lived on Zimmerman’s street for about a year, said that she once left her garage door up and Zimmerman noticed it while out walking his dog. He notified another neighbor, who let Hamilton know. “The only impression I have of George Zimmerman is a good one,” Hamilton said Wednesday. Hamilton said another neighbor, a black woman, would regularly inform Zimmerman when she was out of town so that he could keep an eye on her place. Hamilton said that when she moved into the middle-class, racially mixed community of about 250 identical townhouses, the black neighbor told her, “Hey, if you need anything, you picked a really good area, since George is part of our neighborhood watch.” Zimmerman, who was captain of the neighborhood watch and licensed to carry a gun, made 46 calls to police since 2004, according to department records. In one police call report, the dispatcher noted that Zimmerman was calling about a vehicle “driving real slow, looking at all the other vehicles in the complex and blasting music.” In another call from last August, Zimmerman reported on two black male teens in the neighborhood. He considered them suspicious. A police spokesman in Sanford, a city of 53,000 people outside Orlando that is 57 percent white and 30 percent black, did not return calls for comment about Zimmerman’s repeated reports.

Happy ‘Hawks Congratulations to the Jayhawk women for engineering a gutsy and unexpected victory in the NCAA Tournament.


hat a treat to see the Jayhawk women’s basketball team celebrating Tuesday’s secondround victory in the NCAA Tournament! The Kansas University women were among the last four teams to gain entry into the post-season tournament. With a No. 11 seed, the Jayhawks beat the sixth-seeded Nebraska women Sunday night and earned the right to challenge their bracket’s No. 3 seed, Delaware, on Tuesday. All of the pre-game hype and much of the post-game coverage focused on the formidable Elena Delle Donne, but after the game, the Delaware star had to share at least some of the spotlight with KU’s Angel Goodrich, who powered her teammates to a 70-64 victory. The KU defense swarmed and frustrated Delle Donne, who nonetheless scored 34 points. At the same time, however, the 5-foot-4 Goodrich was zipping around the court, feeding open teammates and scoring 27 points of her own on the way to an unexpected Jayhawk victory. After the game, coach Bonnie Henricksen lifted Goodrich off the floor in an enthusiastic embrace. In a post-game interview on ESPN, Goodrich flashed her winning smile and modestly credited her teammates for the win. How sweet to see the Jayhawk women advance to the NCAA Tournament’s Sweet 16 for the first time since 1998. Only two other schools, Baylor and Kentucky, have advanced both men’s and women’s teams to the round of 16 in their respective tournaments. Best of luck to the KU men on Friday and the women on Saturday as they try to advance to the coveted Final Four.

Change just part of nation’s order In Retreat, Sears Set To Unload Stores — The Wall Street Journal, Feb. 24 WASHINGTON — Retreat need not mean surrender. Still ... In 1886, a shipment of $25 watches from a Chicago jeweler was rejected by the addressee in Redwood Falls, Minn. The jeweler offered to sell the undeliverable goods for $12 apiece to a railroad station agent, who could then sell them to other agents, of whom there were more than 20,000. Which is what the agent, 23-year-old Richard Warren Sears, did. Soon his watch business was booming, so he quit working on the railroad, moved to Minneapolis, then quickly to the nation’s railroad hub, Chicago, where in 1887 he met Alvah Curtis Roebuck, a watchmaker and printer. Rural life and retailing were about to change. As the late Daniel Boorstin explained in “The Americans: The Democratic Experience,” Sears and Roebuck were on a trail blazed by Aaron Montgomery Ward. After a few years as a dry goods salesman in the rural West, in 1872, the year after the Chicago fire, Ward, then 29, rented a 12-by-14-foot loft over a livery stable there and began a mail-order business. In two years his single price sheet became an eight-page

America now is divided between those who find this social churning unnerving and those who find it exhilarating.” booklet, then a 72-page catalog, with woodcuts illustrating most items. The 240-page catalog for 1884 listed almost 10,000 items. Hitherto, the goods most Americans bought — things they could not make for themselves — were items they could handle and examine, sold by people they knew. Now they were enticed to buy unseen goods from distant strangers. The name Sears, Roebuck and Company appeared in 1893 and the catalog was the company’s shop window, store counter and salesman. The Big Book — by 1894 the catalog had more than 500 pages — became second only to the Good Book in American life. By 1903, Sears had its own printing plant.

By the middle of the 20th century, Sears Roebuck had come to town as the nation’s largest retailer, with stores that defined many towns’ downtowns. But in Bentonville, Ark., Sam Walton had an idea for bigger stores on the outskirts of towns. Sears has become a casualty of WalMart’s retailing revolution. Today new mothers sign up at Amazon Mom for regular deliveries of diapers. This is a 21st-century permutation of an innovation in long-distance commerce that began in 19th-century Chicago. Creative destruction continues in the digital age. After 244 years — it began publication five years before the 1773 Boston Tea Party — the Encyclopedia Britannica will henceforth be available only in digital form as it tries to catch up to reference websites such as Google and Wikipedia. Another digital casualty forgot it was selling the preservation of memories, aka “Kodak moments,” not film. America now is divided between those who find this social churning unnerving and those who find it exhilarating. What Virginia Postrel postulated in 1998 in “The Future and Its Enemies: The Growing Conflict Over Creativity, Enterprise and Progress” — the best book for rescuing the country from a ruinous itch for tidiness — is even more true now. Today’s primary political and cultural conflict is, Postrel says, between people,

Lasting mystery omeday, maybe someday soon, the mystery of Amelia Earhart’s disappearance will be solved. Earhart searchers have revealed a new clue they believe may lead to the wreck of her plane near an island in the South Pacific. Many other clues to Earhart’s disappearance during an attempted around-theworld flight have led nowhere, but, you never know, this might be the one. The disappearance of Earhart and her navigator, Fred Noonan, on July 2, 1937, is one of the world’s most enduring mysteries. It’s a story that continues to attract dedicated investigators, as well as many more casual observers. It’s of special interest to Kansans, who claim native Kansan Earhart as one of their own. With today’s technology, it would be next to impossible for an airplane to simply disappear and never be found. There are very few mysteries left as compelling as Earhart’s disappearance. It would be interesting to finally learn more about Earhart’s fate, but it would be a little sad to lose the mystery.

mislabeled “progressives,” who crave social stasis, and those, paradoxically called conservatives, who welcome the perpetual churning of society by dynamism. Stasists see Borders succumb to e-books (and Amazon) and lament the passing of familiar things. Dynamists say: Relax, reading is thriving. In 2001, the iPod appeared and soon stores such as Tower Records disappeared. Who misses them? Theodore Roosevelt, America’s first progressive president, thought it was government’s duty to “look ahead and plan out the right kind of civilization.” TR looked ahead and saw a “timber famine” caused by railroads’ ravenous appetites for crossties that rotted. He did not foresee creosote, which preserves crossties. Imagine all the things government planners cannot anticipate when, in their defining hubris, they try to impose their static dream of the “right kind” of future. As long as America is itself, it will welcome the messy chaos that is not really disorder but rather what Postrel calls “an order that is unpredictable, spontaneous, and ever shifting, a pattern created by millions of uncoordinated, independent decisions.” Professional coordinators, aka bureaucracies, are dismayed. Good.

Music captures America’s mood It begins with big drums, a guitar seesawing beneath like a deck rolling in high seas. It ends with a fuzz of static and feedback, a hiss of promises broken and a mortgage on the future. In the 13 songs that unfold in between, one of the elder statesmen of American popular music delivers what might fairly be called a State of the Union Address. And if that sounds grandiose for a rock album, so be it. But know that, for all the manicured eloquence of the constitutionally mandated report President Obama delivered in January, the new Bruce Springsteen album, “Wrecking Ball,” captures more raw emotional truth about the state of the American Dream than any politician ever could. These first years of the millennium have been extraordinarily trying, especially for a nation that had passed a quarter century in relative peace. Then came terror. Then came wars. Then came economic meltdown. And in the last, we were galled to find that what had brought us to the brink of ruin was the greed, corruption, mendacity and predatory practices of giant money houses and that we were now required to save them from the consequences of their misdeeds because they were too big to fail. Meantime, we failed right, left and sideways, as jobs went away and money grew tight, as horizons receded and hope shriveled down to a wrinkled shell of itself and people who’d never asked for all that much to begin with — a fair chance to earn their own bread, care for themselves, house themselves — found their aspirations pad-

locked behind them, their dreams set out at the curb. In a nation where corporations are people and fetuses are people, actual people could not catch a break, nor even much in the way of empathy. It is from the heart of this disconnection, this chasm between America that is and America that ought to be, that Springsteen issues his report. He finds depression, lamentation and resignation, as in a man forced to make a living by piecemeal as a Jack of All Trades. He finds anger, too. In “Shackled and Drawn,” he sings, “Gambling man rolls the dice, working man pays the bill. It’s still fat and easy up on banker’s hill. Up on banker’s hill, the party’s going strong. Down here below, we’re shackled and drawn.” On “We Take Care Of Our Own,” the anger is accusatory, a demand for an America that looks out for Americans. But with the anger, depression, lamentation and resignation, there is also defiance.

There are also sprigs of hope. “Tomorrow there’ll be sunshine and all this darkness past,” he promises on “Land of Hope and Dreams.” The title song, which commemorates the 2010 demolition of Giants Stadium, also functions as a statement of pugnacious pride: “Take your best shot, let me see what you’ve got. Bring on your wrecking ball!” In other words: knock me down — if you can. There is something quintessentially American in that. One recalls Gen. Anthony McAuliffe’s one-word rejection of a Nazi demand for surrender: “Nuts!” One recalls Franklin Roosevelt’s standing up to “fear itself” in the depths of the Great Depression. One recalls that look on Apollo Creed’s face when Rocky Balboa got up off the canvas. That is what America is — hope and defiance in the face of challenge — and there is something oddly patriotic in Springsteen’s evocation of that in these hard times Not the easy patriotism of Lee Greenwood’s song and children waving sparklers on July 4th, but the hard and determined patriotism of those who will be down, but never stay down, never accept the gap between the America that is and the one that ought to be. It is Springsteen’s triumph to honor anger and lamentation, but also to look beyond them. And to remind us that, though hard times come and hard times go, hope and defiance still abide and sustain. Bring on your wrecking ball. — Leonard Pitts Jr. is a columnist for the Miami Herald. He chats with readers from noon to 1 p.m. CDT each Wednesday on

To the editor: Truth, the first casualty of war, also fares poorly in political campaigns. Since I am not running for office, I can point out some facts that might deserve attention as the season progresses. 1. Government spending can’t be cut significantly, at any level, without putting people out of work. The bulk of government spending goes for wages and salaries. 2. Cutting taxes will not make businesses create jobs. Businesses hire people to do the work to meet demand, not because they have more money. 3. Cutting taxes will not get rid of the deficit. Reagan inherited a deficit of $70 billion. He cut taxes and left office with a deficit of $200 billion. No level of taxation in recent memory has been so large as to put a brake on the economy. 4. There are government regulations that are silly and even odious, but the financial sector is not overregulated, and regulations on that sector are attempts to enforce one law: Thou shalt not steal. 5. National health care would be the best thing that ever happened to American industry. It is absolutely nuts that health care has fallen to employers. 6. Social Security is not a welfare program, and it is not a drain on the government. I pay 12.4 percent of my income and 6.2 percent of my employees’ income for it. Not only is it paid for, the government has been supporting itself in part by borrowing from Social Security. Cutting benefits would constitute outright theft. Walt Hull, Lawrence

Carolina drama intrigues ST. LOUIS — Kendall Marshall. Kendall Marshall. Kendall Marshall. Stilman White. Stilman White. Stilman White. There, now you don’t have to watch Roy Williams’ news conference today. You just heard all the questions, and Roy won’t have any answers. If he knows the odds of Marshall, North Carolina’s gifted sophomore point guard coming off wrist surgery, participating this weekend in the Edward Jones Dome, he won’t share them. While the police-interrogation lamp shines on the coach, the spotlight of speculation zeroes in on Marshall and the more mysterious White. The fascination with the Carolina point-guard uncertainty enabled Kansas to arrive quietly at its downtown hotel Wednesday night with all the Jayhawks’ attention trained on North Carolina State, Friday night’s opponent. On the other hand, nothing in Roy’s world is quiet at the moment. Williams faces difficult decisions that go beyond how to exploit Ohio University in Friday’s regional semifinal. Should Roy put the ball in the hands of smooth sophomore wing Harrison Barnes, a better scorer than facilitator? Or should he let the untested White take on the challenge of getting his first shot at running the Heels? If Dexter Strickland had not been lost for the season in mid-January, Marshall’s wrist injury wouldn’t be as big a deal. Other than Strickland and Marshall, Carolina doesn’t have a player on the roster averaging more than 1.3 assists. A 6-foot, 160-pound freshman out of Wilmington, N.C., White is scheduled to leave for two years on a mission for the Church of the Latter Day Saints. It’s tempting to liken Carolina needing to play White at point guard to Kansas needing to play Naadir Tharpe at the point if Tyshawn Taylor suffered an injury, except that Carolina doesn’t have an Elijah Johnson to slide over to lead guard. Otherwise, the TharpeWhite comparison does have some relevance. Tharpe was more highly recruited than White, who drew interest from Brigham Young. Tharpe played 175 minutes, shot .289 from the field, .273 from three, .500 from the line, attempting just two free throws. He scored 29 points, had 21 assists and 22 turnovers. White played 136 minutes, shot .283 from the field, .200 from three, .500 from the line with 20 attempts. White had 19 assists and just five turnovers. Williams said Justin Watts, a 6-5, 210-pound senior from Durham, N.C., also will spend some time at the point, but Watts has just five assists (and seven turnovers) in 246 minutes. He’s no playmaker, no scorer, considered a better defender than anything. Kansas doesn’t have seven McDonald’s AllAmericans on the roster, as does North Carolina, in fact it doesn’t have any, but it does have two guards whose confidence never has been healthier. Should be a fascinating few days in the Edward Jones Dome.

Naadir’s nadir

Freshman not sulking over lack of court time

NAADIR THARPE STARTED HIS FRESHMAN SEASON at Kansas University well enough. Though he hasn’t played much since the exhibition season, he hasn’t let his lack of court time keep him down.

KU focused on Wolfpack By Gary Bedore

ST. LOUIS — Kansas University’s basketball charter bus pulled directly in front of the Hyatt Regency at the Arch Hotel at 7:45 p.m. Wednesday in the heart of downtown St. Louis. The Jayhawk players were greeted by about 20 youngsters and their parents, who cheered wildly as they

picked up their room keys and headed to the elevators to drop off their gear before returning to the lobby for a dinner excursion to Ruth’s Chris Steak House, located just down the block on Chestnut Street. Coach Bill Self said his Jayhawks were hungry — not only for a delicious meal, but a Sweet 16 victory over North Carolina State (9:17 p.m. Friday, Edward Jones Dome).

“One thing I like about our guys: We’re not concerned about anything other than us and N.C. State, to be candid with you,” Self said. “I’m really proud of our guys. They’ve come together well.

KANSAS’ ANGEL GOODRICH (3) AND COACH BONNIE HENRICKSON walk from the floor after a 70-64 victory over Delaware on Tuesday in Little Rock, Ark.

The jolt from the norm was so shocking, Kansas University senior forward Aishah Sutherland was having a hard time distinguishing between fantasy and reality. After three straight years of knowing nothing but the WNIT in terms of postseason success, advancing to the Sweet 16 in the NCAA Tournament can have that effect. “When I was in the locker room, I told my teammates to pinch me, because I thought I was dreaming,” Sutherland said of the minutes following the KU women’s basketball team’s 70-64 second-round victory over Delaware on Tuesday in Little Rock, Ark. The entire experience —

Saints coach suspended for one year

VCU’s Smart says no to Illinois The Associated Press

The NFL handed down sweeping and unprecedented punishment Wednesday for bounties paid out on big hits, suspending New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton without pay for next season and indefinitely banning the team’s former defensive coordinator, Gregg Williams, who now Payton works for the St. Louis Rams. Payton is the first head coach suspended by the league for any reason. He is accused of trying to cover up a system of extra cash payouts that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell called “particularly unusual and egregious� and “totally unacceptable.� Goodell also banned Saints general manager Mickey Loomis for the first eight regular-season games next season and assistant coach Joe Vitt for the first six games. In addition, Goodell fined the Saints $500,000 and took away their second-round draft picks this year and next.


Jets complete trade for Tebow NEW YORK — Tim Tebow is coming to New York. Really. After a big false start, the New York Jets on Wednesday got the quarterback who turned the Denver Broncos from an also-ran into a playoff team last season and became the NFL’s most talked-about player — for a fourth- and sixth-round draft pick. Eight hours after initially agreeing to a deal, the teams completed the trade that was hung up earlier Wednesday when the Jets apparently balked at repaying Denver more than $5 million for a salary advance due Tebow.

K.C.’s Mendoza hurts hamstring

Virginia Commonwealth basketball coach Shaka Smart on Wednesday ended speculation that he might take the open job at Illinois by announcing that he’ll stay with the Rams. The decision by the young coach was cause for celebration among VCU fans and disappointment for their Illini counterparts. VCU said in a news release that Smart’s $1.2 million contract will be adjusted, but provided no details.

(Taylor) and Elijah (Johnson), who’ve been here and put the time in and worked to be where they’re at right now. It’s tough, you know. But nothing’s more important to me than winning, and that’s what we’ve been doing — a lot.” Tharpe has played in 32 of 35 games, barely. He averages just 5.5 minutes, watched all 40 minutes in two Big 12 games, and played three minutes or less 13 of the 32 times he did crack the lineup. Tharpe and his family have too much pride to allow bitterness to take root. “He’s never had to sit the bench since he was 11 years old,” said Tharpe’s brother, Tishaun Jenkins, 33, of Worcester, Mass. “He’s gotta find that fine line between being humble and being hungry. I think what he understands now that he didn’t understand three months ago is that he has to allow the process to play out but also not just accept the process without giving your all.”

KANSAS GUARD NAADIR THARPE PUMPS HIS FIST after converting a bucket after being fouled by a Fort Hays State defender on Nov. 8, 2011, at Allen Fieldhouse. Also pictured are teammates Kevin Young, left, Niko Roberts and Merv Lindsay. By all accounts, that has not been a problem for Tharpe. He’s well-liked by teammates, has a special bond with All-American Thomas Robinson, with whom he played one season at Brewster, and can be seen jumping off the bench ready to offer a helpful hint to anyone who will listen. “I can contribute a lot,” Tharpe said last week in Omaha, Neb. “Being on the bench, I see everything that’s going on. After coach says what he has to say, I talk to


has gone through. One of the Jayhawks’ top perimeter players, sophomore guard Keena Mays, unexpectedly transferred (eventually deciding on SMU) on Dec. 9, 2011. Then, in the heart of Big 12 play, junior forward Carolyn Davis, KU’s leading scorer, suffered a seasonending ACL tear on Feb. 12 at Kansas State. With Davis out, Kansas finished 2-6 down the stretch. Henrickson said her team had to find ways to win and prove to the NCAA selection committee KU deserved to make it to the tournament without its captain, Davis. Apparently, wins at Texas Tech and Oklahoma did the trick. “Angel has carried us,” Henrickson said of KU’s junior point guard, who played all 40 minutes and scored 27 points Tuesday night against Delaware. “Aishah’s been really, really good, too.” Sutherland, who scored 12 points and led Kansas with 11 rebounds in the second-round victory, said the team adjusted to playing without Davis and found success in sharing the ball. “Our team plays together really well,” Sutherland said, “and if one person doesn’t have a shot, we move it on to the next.” It was that kind of movement against Delaware in the second half that extended the season for Kansas. KU took control when starting guards Harper, a sophomore, and Knight, a freshman, became more involved in the offense. Henrickson admitted she sometimes has to encourage both of them to be more aggressive with their shot attempts. The coach had to remind Knight near the end of the first half Tuesday that she hadn’t taken a shot. By halftime, Knight and Harper had combined to go 0-for-4. The second half was a different story. Harper finished with six points, and Knight scored all of her points during a personal 8-0 run in a twominute stretch, draining two threes in the process. Clicking at the right time, Kansas is now set to face national powerhouse Tennessee (26-8) at 11:04 a.m. Saturday at Wells Fargo Arena, in Des Moines, Iowa. And Sutherland can keep wondering if she is still dreaming. “I’m very excited for my senior year to go this well,” she said. “I’m excited for me and my teammates.”


Conner (Teahan) ... those guys have elevated their game and given us a chance. We haven’t been a team that very many times has had five guys hitting on all cylinders. We’ve kind of had to piece it together. One thing these guys have done, they’ve been pretty tough.” Self was asked if he liked the fact the Jayhawks were flying under the radar with the media occupied over the status of North Carolina guard Kendall Marshall, who broke his hand in the Tar Heels’ second-round victory over Creighton. No. 1 seed UNC plays Ohio at 6:47 p.m. Friday in the first game of the Sweet 16 doubleheader. “Once you get this far, you are going to play good teams regardless moving forward,” Self said. “If you are fortunate enough to play a second game this weekend — us or N.C. State — they’re going to play a good team whoever that is. I think for Kansas fans, it adds to the flavor a bit having Carolina in town. I don’t think it’s a big deal like it used to be.” KU beat former Jayhawk coach Roy Williams’ Tar Heels in a Final Four semifinal in 2008. Self was also asked

Tyshawn, I talk to Elijah, I talk to Thomas. What I really like about it is, even though they’re older than me, they don’t just wave me away. They actually listen to what I’m saying, and I listen to them, too. It’s a team thing, and for us to be here and me to be here, it’s just really exciting, and I’m just enjoying the ride.” Added Robinson: “We respect Naadir as a player and as a person. When he says something, people listen because he knows how to play the game.

about Missouri of all teams during a media gathering at the team hotel. “You know what ... why talk about Missouri? They’re not playing here. We’re playing here, not Missouri,” Self said of the team that dropped a firstround game to Norfolk State. “That’s not a knock to them. That’s the tournament. It’s crazy. A lot of things can happen. I’m focused on what we do, not what anybody else is doing or has done. “I really don’t anticipate a lot of Mizzou fans to be at the game, to be honest with you,” he added, asked if the MU fans would root against KU. “That’s one thing I think has been blown up more so. We are not concerned about Mizzou or their fans. We’ve got a job to do, and that’s to get Kansas ready to play. That’s our only focus. “I’d think we’d have a great turnout of fans over here. We play late enough on Friday that fans who work a majority of the day could still get here.” O

Remembering Wolfpack: Self was a graduate assistant on coach Larry Brown’s KU staff the only time KU has played N.C. State in the NCAA Tournament. KU won, 75-67, on March 23, 1986, at Kemper Arena in Kansas City. “I was a grad assistant but I wasn’t high enough on the totem pole to sit on the bench. I was sitting in the stands,” Self said. “It

There’s something about him. He knows how to play. Soon the world will get to see how good of a player he is.” Jenkins believes the same is true. Because he’s nearly twice his age and has four years of Div. III college basketball at Salem (Mass.) State College behind him, Jenkins sounds a lot like a father when he talks about Tharpe’s first season at KU. Although not biologically related, the two were raised by the same parents — Tharpe from birth and Jenkins beginning at age 5 — and they were there for each other when Tharpe’s biological father, Ronald Tharpe, died in 2006 after a battle with lung cancer. Jenkins said Tharpe always had been thought of as mature before his father passed. But losing him at such a young age made that even more obvious. “He had a couple difficult years in there, maybe 14 to 16 (years old),” Jenkins remembered. “Loving the game again, loving anything again, when you lose your dad is hard. But he came up out of that really tough, and he showed a greater appreciation for life after that happened.” That’s what Jenkins believes is happening here.

Thursday, March 22, 2012 Of course, he would love to see his baby brother play more, but he gets it. The whole family does. And they’re thankful for the education — basketball and otherwise — that Tharpe is getting at Kansas. “I don’t question coach (Bill) Self at all,” Jenkins said. “I think it’s very psychological what he’s doing with Naadir, to toughen him up. And I like to see him at the bottom because life is better appreciated when you have to struggle to get to a point where you feel you’re supposed to be.” It’s not that Tharpe does not have bad days, but leaning on Jenkins and Robinson helps him pull through. The advice they give him is scary in its similarity and usually includes words such as “patience,” “hard work,” and “compete.” Check, check and check. “This is not the first time something like this has happened to me,” Tharpe said. “Back home, I played with an all-star team, and I was the youngest on the team, and there were older guys above me. I was probably 10 years old, but that’s something I don’t forget. After that, I made sure I worked hard, and the next year I was

starting. I’m gonna try to do the same thing here.” By here, he means Kansas. Many have wondered if Tharpe’s limited minutes might encourage him to take a look at other options. Jenkins said he and Tharpe had not even discussed transferring. “This whole season has been humbling for him as a player,” Jenkins said. “And it’s made him understand that he’s not the man, and that he’s gotta work hard and improve and be tough as nails if he wants to be the point guard for Kansas University. I mean, it’s KU.” Asked if he ever wished he went somewhere else, Tharpe fired his answer before the question was even finished. “Never that,” he said. “Never that. I never have regrets, and I never will. This is where I wanted to go, this is where I’m at, and this is where I’m gonna be.” Jenkins doesn’t have to hear those words to know that’s the way Tharpe feels. “The kid is a barrierbreaker, so I’m not really worried about anything,” Jenkins said. “Ever since he was 15 years old, with any issue presented to him, he takes it and evolves with it.”

was a great game, an Elite Eight game in Kemper Arena. Hopefully there will be a similar result this time.” O

Self on KU’s women’s team, which plays Tennessee in the Sweet 16 on Saturday: “It’s great. How ’bout that? They go from being nervous whether or not they are going to get in (tournament) to winning two games. I saw a stat ... only two other programs in the country have both teams in the Sweet 16 (Baylor, Kentucky). That’s really cool. I’m really happy for our women. They work hard. They’ve had an unbelievable string of bad luck with injuries. It’s good to see it all come together for them.” O

Dear Annie: Five years ago, an encounter with a large, vicious dog put me in the ER and left me with lasting scars, physical and otherwise. I’m almost 20 now. I can pet and play with small, quiet dogs, but larger ones strike panic in me. I cringe when I hear barking. I still have nightmares and sometimes feel phantom pains where I was attacked. Spending time with my parents’ medium-sized dog doesn’t help, especially since it has bitten people before, and my family still treats it like the best dog in the world. I never got professional help, because I was told shortly after the attack that I needed to “get over it.” I feel no one understands my fear because it’s an American tradition to love dogs. Besides, I don’t have money for therapy. What can I do? — Terrified Dear Terrified: People

Annie’s Mailbox

Marcy Sugar and Kathy Mitchell

who tell you to “get over it” do not understand the extent of the problem. Your fear is not irrational. You were viciously bitten, and such a trauma is difficult to overcome. The fact that you can pet and play with small dogs is quite an achievement, all considered. If you regularly encounter larger dogs and wish to work on your fear, please know that low-cost therapy is available. Ask your doctor, and check your church and United Way. You can even search on-

‘Missing’ and ‘Touch’ return

The presence of basketball and the absence of CBS’ lineup offer viewers second chances at two new, yet very different dramas. The plot thickens on “Missing” (7 p.m., ABC) as Becca (Ashley Judd) makes a deal with French intelligence that has some sticky strings attached. Viewers at home won’t be the only ones watching this closely. “Missing” opened relatively well for ABC; a second outing should indicate whether that represented genuine interest in this scenery-rich and just-short-of-camp drama, or mere curiosity to see how Ashley Judd would perform as an action hero. Tonight also marks the second outing for “Touch” (8 p.m., Fox), a more ponderous and borderline pretentious drama about the cosmic connections that we dare not call coincidences. In many ways, it resembles “Person of Interest,” another series featuring a troubled character plucked from the masses each week by some magical algorithm. Tonight, a web of numbers leads us into a web of connected threads involving a despondent pawnbroker, a reluctant hit man, a wayward dog, a son’s duty to an unloving father and a mobster father’s need for his son’s approval. Tying this all together requires real suspension of disbelief and several bus rides to boot.

Whether it’s NCAA basketball or the mere presence of “American Idol,” much of cable has gone into serious counter-programming mode, offering a menu of sameness that may drive some to despair. The evening is filled with many series airing in back-to-back helpings, if not in triplicate. Bio offers two helpings of “Celebrity House Hunting”: Debbie Gibson (9 p.m.), Verne Troyer (9:30 p.m.). Catch three installments of “Top Gear” (7 p.m., BBC America); three episodes of “Braxton Family Values,” including the season finale at 8 p.m. (WE); three chances to breathe in “Swamp People” (7 p.m., History); three samplings of “Four Weddings” (7 p.m., TLC); and three repeats of “Deal or No Deal” (7 p.m., GSN). The USA network offers the ultimate choice for viewers in default mode: a primetime consisting of three solid hours of “NCIS” (7 p.m.).

Tonight’s other highlights

 Regional semifinals take center stage at the 2012 NCAA Basketball Tournament (6 p.m., CBS; 6:15 TBS).

 A singer goes home on “American Idol” (7 p.m., Fox).


USA Today founder Allen H. Neuharth is 88. Composer Stephen Sondheim is 82. Evangelist Pat Robertson is 82. Actor William Shatner is 81. Singer-guitarist George Benson is 69. Writer James Patterson is 65. CNN newscaster Wolf Blitzer is 64. Composer Andrew Lloyd Webber is 64. Sportscaster Bob Costas is 60. Singer-actress Stephanie Mills is 55. Actor Matthew Modine is 53. Actress Reese Witherspoon is 36.

line for tips on overcoming phobias. Dear Annie: I own property out of state. I use it mostly in the summer, but it’s checked on at least once a month. My neighbor there is married to a woman who is no longer friends with me, but we are civil to each other. The problem is, the wife thinks she’s entitled to dig up and take or remove any of my plants, shrubs, gravel, etc. Every season, I check the garden to make sure nothing else is missing. I took pride in my garden of perennials and enjoyed the fruits of my hard work. Last fall, I noticed the day lilies were pulled out of the ground. She also dug up a hosta that had been in that spot for years. She obviously does her dirty work when her husband isn’t home. I went to the police, and they suggested I discuss this with the neighbor. The officer said if


For Thursday, March 22: New beginnings earmark this year. You will be direct, and others will respond in kind. Communication flows. If you are single, you could meet “the one.” If you are attached, the two of you romp around as if you have not a care in the world. 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)  Today’s New Moon in your sign signals a new beginning in a most appropriate area. You will feel far more connected and free as a result. Tonight: Seize the moment. Taurus (April 20-May 20)  You could decide to say little and observe a lot. You also could have an unusually strong reaction to a situation. Try to process your feelings before responding. Tonight: Do your thing. Gemini (May 21-June 20)  Zero in on a meeting. The discussion that ensues could have a lot more to do with your plans than you’d thought. Tonight: Where the action is. Cancer (June 21-July 22)  You are on top of a project, work or errands. You feel as if you cannot be stopped from attaining a long-desired goal. Tonight: Work with the situation. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)  Look past the obvious. It might be time to finally indulge a long-term goal or desire. This wish could involve travel, someone at a distance or a special seminar. Tonight: Try a new spot. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)  You could be exhausted by recent events and might wonder how much more of yourself you can

the police dropped by, it would be considered a threat, and besides, the husband may not know anything. This has been going on for years. I bought an outside camera (not installed) and left her a note saying I had contacted the police, but it hasn’t made any difference. She ignores all “No Trespassing” signs. Any suggestions? — At the End of My Rope Dear End: Are you sure the wife is doing this? We strongly recommend you install that camera and find out. If you get proof, talk to the husband and ask him to discuss it with his wife. You also can take it to the police. This is trespassing and theft, and it’s against the law. — Send questions to, or Annie’s Mailbox, P.O. Box 118190 Chicago, IL 60611.

give. A new beginning in a relationship becomes possible. Tonight: Keep it personal, with just you and one other person. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  Others believe they are in control, yet it is rather obvious that that might not be true. You might opt not to burst their bubbles. Tonight: Sort through invitations with an eye to the weekend. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  You could be taken aback by someone who affects your day-to-day life. This person’s words could toss your mood and/or plans into disarray. Tonight: Do errands. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)  Whether approaching a creative project or deciding to date a special person, a green light beams. Though you might be focused on serious matters a lot of the time, you like the lightening up that occurs. Tonight: Be a wild thing. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)  Stay close to home, and be aware that you really are not limited. A discussion with a roommate or family member could enlighten you about alternatives. Tonight: Stay close to home. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  Your words have an impact. Conversations evolve from a simple statement. You can clear out what has been a problem or start over with a new beginning. Tonight: Join friends. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)  Be aware of your needs and what you have to offer. Financial matters easily could change in your favor in the near future. Tonight: Indulge a loved one. — The astrological forecast should be read for entertainment only.

ing battle. Syracuse is outrebounded by 1.5 per game, and the zone leaves the Orange susceptible to offensive boards. Wisconsin isn’t overly tall, but the Badgers are bulky and don’t mind throwing their weight around.

No. 2 Ohio State vs. No. 6 Cincinnati Time: 8:45 p.m. The spread: Ohio State by 7.5 Records: Cincinnati 2610, Ohio State 29-7 How they got here: Cincinnati beat No. 11 Texas 65-59, beat No. 3 Florida State 62-56. Ohio State

beat No. 15 Loyola (Md.) 78-59, beat No. 7 Gonzaga 73-66. The buzz: This is just the 10th meeting in history between these in-state schools, with the last coming in the John Wooden Tradition tourney in 2006. Cincy has won two national titles in basketball, and beat the Buckeyes in the final both times (1961 and ‘62). Both teams can be physical, but Cincy has the edge in that category over the Buckeyes. The big-man matchup between Ohio State’s Jared Sullinger and Cincy’s Yancy Gates should be extremely entertaining. A big key for the Bearcats is keeping Ohio State PG Aaron Craft under control. Craft is a, well, crafty point guard who is an excellent passer; he also

is a pesky on-ball defender. Cincy needs some three-pointers from Sean Kilpatrick and/or Cashmere Wright. Ohio State usually pounds foes on the boards, so that bears watching.

Louisville beat No. 13 Davidson 69-62, beat No. 5 New Mexico 59-56 The buzz: No rest for the weary; Spartans coach Tom Izzo goes from matching wits with SLU coach Rick Majerus to matching wits with Louisville’s Rick Pitino. Both teams will be comfortable with any pace, and both are fully capable of winning ugly. Michigan State hammers foes on the boards, and that has to worry Pitino.

Where: TD Garden, Boston TV: CBS Announcers: Verne Lundquist play-by-play, Bill Raftery analyst Time: 6:15 p.m. CDT. The spread: Syracuse by 3.5 Records: Syracuse 33-2, Wisconsin 26-9 How they got here: Syracuse beat No. 16 UNC Asheville 72-65, beat No. 8 Kansas State 75-59. Wisconsin beat No. 13 Montana 73-49, beat No. 4 Vanderbilt 60-57. The buzz: Wisconsin games can be painful to watch, so imagine what it must be like to play against the Badgers. The slower the pace, the better for the Badgers in this one. Wisconsin’s three-point shooting is going to be important; the Badgers hit 36.3 percent from beyond the arc, but Syracuse’s zone limits opponents to 30.7 percent. The soft spot in the zone is at the foul line, so it’s worth watching to see which player(s) Wisconsin coach Bo Ryan feels comfortable with there. Syracuse forces 16.4 turnovers per game, and the Orange thrives in transition. But Wisconsin commits the secondfewest turnovers per game (9.0) in the nation. Finally, watch the rebound-

Four teams will move into the Elite Eight tonight. Here’s a look at the four regional semifinals to be played. All four games match “power conference” schools against each other. All four Big East teams still alive play tonight, while three of the remaining four Big Ten teams will be in action. The only “interloper” is the SEC’s Florida. Three of the four games are Big East-Big Ten matchups:

Time: 9:17 p.m. The spread: Marquette by 1.5 Records: Florida 25-10, Marquette 27-7 How they got here: Florida beat No. 10 Virginia 71-45, beat No. 15 Norfolk State 84-50. Marquette beat No. 14 BYU 88-68, beat No. 6 Murray State 62-53. The buzz: This is all about Florida’s threepoint shooting; the Gators hit 38.3 percent of their shots from beyond the arc, but the Golden Eagles’ perimeter defense has been solid all season. Marquette isn’t big, but it is more physical than Florida. Still, the Golden Eagles aren’t great on the boards. Florida’s defense has been excellent in the tournament, but Marquette poses far more problems than a Virginia team overly reliant on one player (Mike Scott) and a Norfolk team that was lucky to be there. Marquette F Jae Crowder was the Big East player of the year, and the Golden Eagles have a nice offensive duo in Crowder and G Darius Johnson-Odom; the Gators need to make sure that one of them has a tough night. This is Marquette’s fourth SEC opponent of the season; the Golden Eagles hammered Ole Miss but lost to Vanderbilt and LSU (seriously). The Gators split with Vandy and rolled past LSU.
