Bill cuts state pay, except legislative staff By Scott Rothschild

School board candidates share budget-cutting approaches at forum By Mark Fagan

Candidates running for seats on the Lawrence school board understand that next year’s anticipated $3 million budget hole could grower wider and deeper in the years ahead for the Lawrence school district. And while they agree that protecting classroom instruction should be the most important consideration in making budget cuts, participants in a candidate forum Tuesday night outlined some differences in their financial approaches. Eight of the campaign’s nine active candidates participated in the forum at City Hall, an event organized by the Voter Education Coalition. Rick Ingram, a candidate who is a professor

of psychology at Kansas University, did not attend. The general election is April 5. Marlene Merrill, a retired educator and the board’s lone SCHOOLS incumbent to seek re-election, noted that the district already had been forced to cut $12 million during the past four years. The “most important thing” in cutting another $3 million for this coming year, she said, would be “to safeguard classroom instruction.” That would leave three options for cuts, she said: ● Close schools. ● Increase class sizes. ● Make cuts to “everything else,”

including counselors, food service and other programs. “We have 15 elementaries, and we cannot financially support that number of elementary schools,” Merrill said. “Something else gets sacrificed if we keep all 15 of those schools.” Shannon Kimball, an attorney taking a break from work to be a stay-athome mom, expressed frustration with the latest news out of Topeka: Legislators are pursuing plans to cut the amount of state base aid per pupil to within $10 of the rate that had been paid to districts in 1999. “We’re trying to provide a 2011 education on 1999 dollars,” Kimball said. “We’re going to have to look across the board, at all areas, to try to find

tainability coordinator for the city of Lawrence and Douglas County. “A lot of time sustainability measures make good economic sense and operational sense,” Horn said. Suggestions ranged from having reusable mugs instead of Styrofoam cups for drinking coffee to planting more native grasses along the county’s roadways. “We looked top to bottom throughout the organization,” Horn said. The work of putting together a plan had departments re-evaluating their practices, said Mike Perkins, operations division manager for public works. “It was really helpful in asking, ‘Why is that the best way?’ Maybe you think that is the best way, but what about this?” Perkins said. Along with planting native grasses, the public works department is looking

How Lawrence stacks up Company makeups and insurance plans differ so much that it’s difficult to compare apples to apples. Also, many employers don’t want to divulge their benefits. Here’s a look at a national study by the Kaiser Family Foundation and the Health Research & Educational Trust. In 2010, it found: ● 5 percent — increase in premiums for single coverage. ● 3 percent — increase in premiums for family coverage. ● $5,049 — average annual premium for single coverage, up from $4,824. ● $13,770 — average annual premium for family coverage, up from $13,375. ● 27 percent — of workers in large firms pay at least a $1,000 deductible for single coverage, and 46 percent in small firms. ● 23 percent — of employers increased the share of the premium a worker has to pay. ● 19 percent — average premium contribution by employees for single coverage, up from 17 percent in 2009. ● 30 percent —average premium contribution by employees for family coverage, up from 27 percent in 2009. “With the economy struggling, businesses have been shifting more of the costs of health insurance to workers through premiums, deductibles and other cost-sharing,” Kaiser President and CEO Drew Altman said in a statement. “This may be

Sustainability practices save energy, money By Christine Metz

A lot of time sustainability measures make good economic By 2015, Douglas County mainte- sense and operational sense.”

nance director Bill Bell has a goal of reducing the county’s energy consumption by 30 percent. His ideas of how to get there aren’t glamorous ones. In the past six months, $183,000 has been spent to upgrade the county’s heating and cooling system at the Douglas County Judicial and Law Enforcement Center. Crews have digitized the variable air volume boxes stored in the duct work. They’ve finely tuned when the building’s air handlers turn on. And, they’ve installed software to track room temperatures online. Bell predicts energy savings from those changes will repay the $183,000 expense in six years and reduce energy use by 20 percent. Already, they’ve seen a $5,000 reduction in the monthly energy bill.

— Eileen Horn, sustainability coordinator for the city of Lawrence and Douglas County “Between the courthouse and this building, I think that (30 percent reduction) is going to be possible,” Bell said. Bell’s goal was one of 12 in the county’s recently created sustainability plan. The plan, which still has to be adopted by the Douglas County Commission, enlisted employees from departments throughout the county to help figure out ways to be more sustainable. Most of the departments were already taking steps, said Eileen Horn, who was hired a year ago to be the sus-

For the past decade, employers have grappled with the skyrocketing costs of providing health insurance for employees. Double-digit premium increases and higher deductibles have been the norm. That’s why Shirley MartinSmith, owner of Adecco Personnel, gave a sigh of relief when she went to renew her Blue Cross Blue Shield plan Nov. 1 for her nine employees. The premiums went down 1 percent, compared with a 5 percent increase in 2009. “What’s the rationale? We don’t know. But we do know that in small groups like ours, the demographics tend to greatly impact the rates,” she said. For the past 10 years, her company has paid 70 percent of the premium costs and the employees pay the rest. The deductible — $1,500 for an individual and $3,000 for a family — hasn’t changed. If it does, she consults her employees. “We try to get them involved if we feel there’s going to be an impact to their pocketbook that they really need to be aware of,” she said.

Tax plan worries Senate president


3-day wait on abortion signed into law Women who want an abortion in South Dakota will face the longest waiting period in the nation — three days — and have to undergo counseling at pregnancy help centers that discourage abortions under a measure signed into law Tuesday by Gov. Dennis Daugaard. Within minutes of Daugaard’s announcement that he had signed the measure, abortion rights groups said they plan to file a lawsuit challenging the measure, which one said could create particular hardships for women who live in rural areas hundreds of miles from the state’s only abortion clinic in Sioux Falls. Daugaard, who gave no interviews after signing the bill, said in a written statement that he had conferred with state attorneys who will defend the law in court and a sponsor who has pledged to raise private money to finance the state’s court fight.

Chaos continues as U.S. mulls options Moammar Gadhafi’s snipers and tanks are terrorizing civilians in the coastal city of Misrata, a resident said, and the U.S. military warned Tuesday it was “considering all options” in response to dire conditions there that have left people cowering in darkened homes and scrounging for food and rainwater. The U.S. is days away from turning over control of the air assault on Libya to other countries, President Barack Obama said. Just how that will be accomplished remains in dispute: Obama spoke Tuesday with British Prime Minister David Cameron and French President Nicolas Sarkozy in hopes of quickly resolving the squabble over the transition. “When this transition takes place, it is not going to be our planes that are maintaining the no-fly zone. It is not going to be our ships that are necessarily enforcing the arms embargo. That’s precisely what the other nations are going to do,” the president said at a news conference in El Salvador as he neared the end of a Latin American trip overshadowed by events in Libya. 3 | JAPAN

Progess on electrical lines made Workers at a leaking nuclear complex hooked up power lines to all six of its reactor units, but other repercussions from a massive earthquake and tsunami still rippled across Japan as economic losses mounted at three flagship companies. The progress on the electrical lines at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant was a welcome and significant advance Tuesday after days of setbacks. With the power lines connected, officials hope to start up the overheated plant’s crucial cooling system that was knocked out during the March 11 earthquake and tsunami that devastated Japan’s northeast coast. Tokyo Electric Power Co. warned that workers still need to check all equipment for damage first before switching the cooling system on to all the reactor units — a process that could take days or even weeks.

accomplished with the use of extension cords. But she sees potential for portable solar panels for drilling a water well or using the panels instead of a generator while building a shed on the farm. “We are looking at ways of moving beyond conventional energy sources so that the farm stays sustainable, stays functional no matter what is going on with the conventional energy system around us,” Lowther said. Moser was looking to fill a gap in the solar energy market. Solar trackers can be found on fixed structures, and there are portable

T O P E K A — Senate President Steve Morris on Tuesday signaled his concern with a major tax overhaul pushed through the House by conservative Republicans. “Some may argue that it is, in fact, f iscally irresponsible and poor public policy to virtually wipe out any potential increase in state revenue, particularly at a time LEGISLATURE when we are making deep cuts to education, threatening to close Kansas Neurological Institute, proposing pay cuts to our state employees and making other extremely difficult budget cuts that have serious repercussions for our citizens,” said Morris, a Republican from Hugoton. The state is facing an estimated $500 million revenue shortfall for the fiscal year that starts July 1. Cuts to public schools and social services are under consideration. The House-approved tax legislation would require a cut in the corporate and individual income tax rates for any fiscal year where tax revenues rise above last year’s total. Supporters of the bill, which is in part based on research by Gov. Sam Brownback’s budget director Steve Anderson, say the

Portable solar trackers seek out best sun spots By Christine Metz

For the past few years, Natalya Lowther has watched Mark Moser hammer out the details of a portable solar tracker in her father’s backyard in Manhattan. Last weekend, Lowther held a demonstration of Moser’s equipment, known as Konza Portable Solar Trackers, on her North Lawrence farm during a seasonal sheep shearing session. What she found was a technology — mounted on the back of a truck — that could be applicable throughout the farm. “This is actually really fun to watch,” Lowther said of the solar tracker. Along with being portable, what makes the solar tracker system unique is the solar panels’ ability to adjust to the brightest spot in the sky. The mounting and tracking system can be used for anything that

Ordinarily solar energy is kind of boring. There is something to watch there. It engages you in your power production, and that is really exciting.” — Natalya Lowther, who used Konza Portable Solar Trackers to generate power for shearing sheep at her farm has to be orientated towards the sun, not just solar panels, Moser said. Moser, a mechanical engineer by trade, decided to launch his invention at Lowther’s Pinwheel Farm. “I thought it went really well until the rain dumped,” Moser said. On Saturday, Moser brought four solar panels, which on a sunny day can generate about 200 watts of electricity each. Even in Saturday’s rain there was enough electricity to keep the shears buzzing. That technology won’t necessarily be applicable to Lowther’s sheep shearing operation, which can easily be


Retired Army officer to tackle issues by planning ahead By Mark Fagan

ONLINE: See a video of Randy Masten answering three questions about his campaign at

Randy Masten learned the importance of strategic planning not in a classroom, or from a textbook, or from one of those convention center management seminars. No, Masten saw the significance firsthand as a U.S. Army officer on post in Iraq — as a team chief at the Combined Intelligence Center in Baghdad — and then later on staff at the Pentagon. Planning ahead is more than a fine idea, he said. It’s critical to the mission, one in which rests the fates of soldiers, civilians and nations. “You are trying to provide a goal or an objective that is one, five, 10 years out,” Masten said. “You’re not focused strictly on day-to-day events, although your plans should be supportive of all the day-to-day events. What you do is maintain

your plans going forward, instead of just the here and now.” Masten, now retired and pursuing a doctorate in history at Kansas University, wants to bring his strategic approach to local government as a member of the Lawrence school board. He’s one of nine people campaigning for four available seats on the board. The general election is April 5, with winners to begin their four-year terms in July.

Issues Masten, who retired as a lieutenant colonel Jan. 1, wants to apply many of the policies, procedures and approaches picked up during his 21 years and nine months in the military to the front lines of educational decision-making. Yes, budgets are shrinking. Sure, a task force recommends closing schools and consolidating others. True, the Lawrence school district struggles to meet rising performance standards on portions of state assessments.

Tough times, Masten said, call for logical, criteria-based decisions reached through rational approaches that include plenty of informed public participation. Among his plans for the board, if elected: ● Improve transparency. Working intelligence in Iraq, Masten said he and his colleagues sought to declassify as much information as possible so that it could be discussed openly in hopes of gathering even more intelligence that could lead to proper decisions. The school board, he said, should do the same. “The data they have has to be released in a timely manner — as in before meetings, five days out from a meeting — to have what we’re intending to talk about be available to the public,” Masten said. “You can’t get (good) public input without giving them all of the information.” ● Seek advice. The district should form a budget committee to suggest and study options for sav-

ing money to accommodate declining resources from the state, while still preserving quality education in the classroom. Such volunteers could come from accounting and business backgrounds. “That’s the joy of living in Lawrence,” he said. “We’re one of the most educated cities of our size in the United States. There are a lot of smart people here, and a lot of them are willing to help.” ● Make the case. Masten said he would advocate for legislators and Gov. Sam Brownback to “live up to their obligations” for financing education. Cuts now will mean less business growth later, Masten said: “They need to understand that the decisions they are making will affect decisions businesses will make about whether they want to come here.” ● Be open, honest and willing to listen. The Lawrence Elementary School Facility Vision Task Force already has recommended closing

LAW ENFORCEMENT REPORT • Lawrence Douglas County Fire Medical workers are investigating a vehicle fire that occurred Monday night near 21st and Louisiana streets. Division Chief James King said firefighters were dispatched at 10:30 p.m. Monday to the 800 block of Greever Terrace and discovered a Ford pickup truck that was fully engulfed in flames. The fire was extinguished, and no one was injured, King said, but investigators are still trying to determine the cause of the blaze. The Journal-World does not print accounts of all police reports filed. The newspaper generally reports: • Burglaries, only with a loss of $1,000 or more, unless there are unusual circumstances. To protect victims, we generally don’t identify them by name. • The names and circumstances of people arrested, only after they are charged. • Assaults and batteries, only if major injuries are reported. • Holdups and robberies.

Douglas County prosecutors have charged a 46-year-old Eudora man with molesting a child, and he was arrested on a warrant for aggravated criminal sodomy last week in Missouri, said Grady Walker, Eudora’s police chief. The man was transferred to Douglas County Jail on Monday and was being held on $50,000 bond, but a judge increased it to $100,000 Tuesday afternoon during his first appearance in court. Prosecutors have charged him with two counts of aggravated criminal sodomy and two counts of aggravated indecent liberties with a child alleged to have occurred from March 11 to March 14. According to court records, the child is 9 years old. Walker said the defendant and child knew each other. He said that the investigation was ongoing and that officers are trying to determine whether there could be other victims in association with the case. “It’s a pretty in-depth investigation,” Walker said. The Journal-World generally does not identify sex crime suspects unless they have been convicted.

struct a branch in Topeka, but he and Wurm concealed the fact, including from the FDIC, that Becker would serve as the general contractor. Prosecutors said Wurm inflated bills from Louis Droge Construction to cover draw requests to the bank on the branch. Becker approved a total of $383,355 in draw COURTS requests, and Wurm collected $115,000 more from the bank than what he paid to Louis Droge Construction. That money went to Becker, prosecutors said. Becker has been sentenced to serve five years in prison, and co-defendant Stephanie R. Smith has been sentenced to serve two years probation. According to federal court records, Wurm must surrender to federal authorities within two months, and the judge recommended he be placed at a camp in Leavenworth.

Eudora native to open pharmacy Eudora soon will have two pharmacies. Mike Burns, owner of AuBurn Pharmacy chain, is opening a store in his hometown. The pharmacy is scheduled to open in early May near 15th and Church streets, where Simple Simon’s Pizza was located. Among its services will be free local delivery, a prescription refill reminder program, 24/7 prescription refills and discount generic plans. It will be open 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. weekdays and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays. Burns, 44, of Garnett, said he worked at Byrne’s Pharmacy, a longtime Eudora business, while attending KU School of Pharmacy. He said owner Stan Byrne was a mentor to him. When Byrne sold the business in 2007, Burns felt that was an opportunity to start looking for his own pharmacy location. He believes Eudora is big enough to support two. “I believe that we’ve lost a lot of business out of Eudora that has went elsewhere because of location and because of scope of services,” he said. “I’ve received numerous requests over the years about putting a pharmacy in town that provides the same services as the other AuBurn ones do.” It will be the 15th pharmacy in the AuBurn chain. Burns also has pharmacies in Baldwin City, Wellsville and Overland Park.

A federal judge Monday sentenced a Meriden man to serve 15 months in federal prison for his role in helping a former Jefferson County bank president embezzle funds. U.S. District Judge Julie A. Robinson handed down the sentence to Michael R. Wurm after Wurm pleaded guilty in January to one count of aiding and abetting a theft by a bank officer. In his plea, Wurm admitted that in 2001 and 2002 he helped Scott Becker, former president of Meriden State Bank. According to the U.S. Attorney’s office, Becker convinced the bank’s board to con-

Secretary of Labor seeks Civil Service elimination By Scott Rothschild

We are not trying to deprive anyone of TOPEKA — Kansas’ largest continued employment; state employee union urged legislators on Tuesday to just be a good worker.”

reject a move by Kansas Secretary of Labor Karin Brownlee to have total authority over who can work for the agency. “This amendment is simply an attack on Kansas worker protections and is completely unnecessary,” said Rebecca Proctor, legal counsel for the Kansas Organization of State Employees. “Fundamentally, this amendment does nothing except allow Secretary Brownlee to discharge and

— Secretary of Labor Karin Brownlee discipline employees without cause,” Proctor told the Senate Commerce Committee. Brownlee said she wants to improve the agency through better management and a merit-based employee system. “We are not trying to deprive anyone of continued employment; just be a good worker,” she said. Her proposal would make

all employees at the Labor Department unclassif ied workers without Civil Service protection who serve at the pleasure of the secretary. The move would affect 383 classified workers, or about two-thirds of the agency. Brownlee said the current Civil Service system is too constraining and takes too long to remove a bad employee. Proctor, however, said the Civil Service system has procedures to reward employees based on merit and get rid of workers who are doing a bad job. Sen. Tom Holland, D-Baldwin City, said Brownlee’s proposal could arbitrarily take away workers’ rights and lead

New recommendations for child safety seats released Staff Report

The American Academy of Pediatrics has new advice on child safety seats. In a policy published in the April 2011 issue of Pediatrics, it advises parents: ● To keep their toddlers in rear-facing car seats until age 2, or until they reach the maximum height and weight for their seat. ● To keep children in a belt-positioning booster seat until they have reached 4 feet 9 inches tall and are between 8 and 12 years of age. The previous policy, from 2002, advised that it is safest for infants and toddlers to

ride rear-facing up to the limits of the car seat, but it also cited age 12 months and 20 pounds as a minimum. As a result, many parents turned the seat to face the front of the car when their child celebrated his or her first birthday. John Drees, of Safe Kids of Douglas County Coalition, said the organization has been following the 2011 recommendations for two years, since the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia released a study on child car seat safety. It found that rear-facing children up to age 2 were 500 percent safer in real-world cases.

The coalition provides about 600 free child seat safety checks annually and gives away 200. There are two upcoming child safety seat events in Lawrence: ● Friday — 9 a.m. to noon, old ambulance building north of Lawrence Memorial Hospital, 325 Maine. It is by appointment only and can be done by calling ConnectCare at 749-5800. ● Saturday, April 2 — 9 a.m. to noon, Dale Willey Automotive, 2840 Iowa. No appointments needed. A car seat guide for parents is available at

Kansas Masons raise $2.1 million for KU Cancer Center The Kansas Masonic Foundation raised $2.1 million in two years for the Kansas University Cancer Center. Its goal is to assist the KU Cancer Center in achieving National Cancer Institute designation. KU has recognized the Mason’s support by naming the research wing of its cancer

center the Kansas Masonic Cancer Research Institute. “The funds raised by Kansas Masons will help advance cancer awareness and research throughout the region. The Institute seeks to bring to the University of Kansas Cancer Center new cancer research programs, new resources for determining and providing

more effective treatments, and greater opportunities to collaborate with the finest researchers around the world to conquer all forms of cancer,” said Dr. Roy Jensen, director of the KU Cancer Center. Since 1975, the Kansas Masonic Foundation has donated $22 million to cancer research at KU.

It engages you in your power production, and that is really exciting.” The medium-sized tracker and frame mount, which was what Moser had on display Saturday, is priced at $3,000. The cost doesn’t include solar panels. Lowther plans to continue

reductions in tax rates will attract more business and industry to the state. The concept has been supported by the Kansas Chamber of Commerce and Kansas chapter of Americans for Prosperity. Opponents say the measure will increase state government’s reliance on the state sales tax, which hits low-income Kansans the hardest, and will deprive education, public safety and social services of any new revenues as costs increase. Morris also said the propos-

The board should live up to the task force’s recommendations, he said, and actively seek out the public’s input when deciding how or where to pursue consolidation. “If schools have to be closed, we want a very sound decision-making process as to how those should occur,” said Masten, who was involved last year with Save Our Neighborhood Schools, an organization

Morris had declared the bill “materially altered” and referred it to the Senate tax committee for further study. That had raised questions from House Speaker Mike O’Neal, R-Hutchinson, who said the bill should have advanced to a House-Senate conference committee. “Time is running out, and I hope the Senate’s intent is not to ‘run out the clock’ on good policy coming over from the House,” O’Neal said. Morris said the proposed major change in tax policy needs to be fully vetted in a Senate committee.

ma, Germany and Poland, or stateside in Texas, California, Alabama, Georgia or Washington, D.C. Masten taught strategic planning at the Command and General Staff College at Fort Leavenworth before retiring, allowing them to stay in Lawrence. Now he wants to plan ahead, with schools leading the way both now and well into the future. “So much is spent on the near term, but we need to know where we want to be in 20 years,” Masten said. “We want to have the best schools in the state and have our children ready for the colleges and businesses that will need them 20 years from now.”

Background Masten and his wife, Kathi, have a 9-year-old son, Kanak, who is in third grade at Cordley. The Mastens chose to live in Lawrence after they’d come to KU to study: Masten received a masters in Russian and Eastern European Studies, and Kathi received a degree in art history. Lawrence offered them a comfortable town with a strong sense of community, something that had not always been present at other stops during Masten’s military career: abroad in Pana-

al is similar to the so-called Taxpayer Bill of Rights that was passed in Colorado and has “crippled” that state’s economy. But Derrick Sontag, head of the Kansas chapter of Americans for Prosperity, said Colorado’s economy is growing much faster than in Kansas. “We simply must reform our tax structure to ensure that core government services are funded without bleeding Kansas families and businesses dry,” Sontag said. House members had taken a Senate bill that dealt with requiring retailers to provide the correct sales tax rate on receipts and replaced that language with the tax overhaul proposal.

Kansas Senate advances voter ID proposals By John Hanna Associated Press Writer

TOPEKA — Secretary of State Kris Kobach’s proposal to require Kansas voters to show photo identification at the polls won f irst-round approval Tuesday in the state Senate, although other aspects of his plan to eliminate voter fraud were left out. Senators advanced the measure on a voice vote and plan to take final action today. It still includes Kobach’s proposal to require people registering to vote for the first time in Kansas to produce a passport, birth certificate or other proof of citizenship, but senators would delay the rule until 2013, instead of starting it next year, as Kobach wants. The Senate’s version of the bill also omits proposals from Kobach to increase penalties for election crimes and to give the secretary of state’s office the authority to file and prosecute voter fraud cases in state courts. The House’s version of the bill contains those provisions. Still, Kobach said he’s pleased by the Senate’s action. Negotiators will have to resolve the two chambers’ differences, and a key senator said the work is likely to move the final version back toward what Kobach prefers, particularly on the proof-of-citizenship requirement. “Kansas is one step closer to having the most secure elections in America,” Kobach said. Kobach, a Republican, won last year’s election with 59 percent of the vote after making election fraud the key issue of his campaign. But he’s long faced skepticism that significant election fraud occurs in Kansas, and Democrats argue that his proposals will suppress turnout and decrease the number of registered voters. “This is an onerous piece of legislation,” said Sen. David Haley, a Kansas City Democrat. “Creating that extra hurdle and that extra burden is absolutely wrong.” The bill would make Kansas the 10th state with a requirement that voters show photo ID at the polls, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. But Kobach contends Kansas would be ahead of all other states if it combines that requirement with a proof-ofcitizenship rule and the other measures he proposed. A Senate committee voted to delay the proof-of-citizenship requirement until 2013 to give the state time to conduct an educational campaign. Kobach opposed the move, and Senate Ethics and Elections Committee Chairwoman Terrie Huntington, of Fairway, told fellow GOP senators in a caucus Tuesday that she’ll work to eliminate the delay in negotiations with the House. Kobach said after the Senate’s debate that it’s “outrageous” to claim that the bill will suppress turnout or voter registration because, “It suggests an ill intent.” Backers of the bill said it includes provisions to prevent either from happening. For example, it requires the state to provide free non-driver IDs and allows people to bring a photo ID or documents proving their citizenship to election officials after they’ve gone to the polls or filled out a voter registration form. Kobach released a study in January that said the secretary of state’s off ice has received 59 reports of alleged irregularities involving at least 221 ballots since 1997 — twice as many as documented by an internal report three years ago. The alleged irregularities don’t represent proven cases of voter fraud and are based on sometimes vague reports of wrongdoing.

ment off our backs,” said Rep. Charlotte O’Hara, an Overland Park Republican. Defenders of the ban said it serves the greater public good. Rep. Tom Burroughs, a Kansas City Democrat, said the cost to businesses to comply with the law is outweighed by the benefits to Kansans who aren’t exposed to smoke while at work, eating or patronizing other establishments. “Individual freedoms stop when the freedom endangers others,” Burroughs said. The managers of the three casinos opposed the bill when the House Committee on Health and Human Services heard testimony. Casinos argue that banning smoking will hurt their ability to make a return on their investment. The state Division of Budget estimated, based on casino projections, that the ban would reduce estimated revenues owed to the state and local governments by $16 million.

KU-MU venue Kansas University officials should take a firm stand in favor of returning the KansasMissouri football game to the university campuses.


ith Kansas University’s basketball season winding down to the final several weeks, sports fans soon will be turning their attention to spring football and the outlook for the Jayhawks in the 2011 season. Hopefully, KU and Missouri officials will decide not to renew their deal to play the annual KU-MU football game in Kansas City’s Arrowhead Stadium and will return future games to their rightful places: KU’s Memorial Stadium and MU’s Faurot Field. It is understandable that some Kansas City leaders wanted the game in their city and Arrowhead Stadium and Kansas City Chiefs officials wanted the games played in their professional stadium. They sold the plan on the idea it would allow more KU and MU fans to attend the game than if it was played in Lawrence or Columbia, but the real kicker was that it would bring additional dollars to Kansas City. Those living elsewhere and coming to KC would generate millions of Christmas season retail dollars, fill hotel rooms and restaurants, contribute sizable tax dollars to Missouri and provide a handsome pay day for Arrowhead Stadium through parking fees and concessions sales. And the two schools also would receive a handsome check. KC and Chiefs representatives had tried for years to get MU and KU officials to move the game to Arrowhead. From the outset, KU officials had said “no.” Missouri officials said they would agree to the plan as long as the Kansas City site would be counted as KU’s home game and the game would move back to Columbia when MU was the home team. It wasn’t until Robert Hemenway became KU chancellor and Lew Perkins moved into the athletic director’s office that KU acceded to the wishes of Kansas City leaders. The most recent four-year contract to play the game in KC will end in 2012, and Kansas City leaders are sure to exert every possible pressure and tactic to continue the game at Arrowhead. Now is the time for KU officials to stand firm and not be blinded by the promise of dollars or the possibility of using this to win friends in Kansas City. The games should be played on the campuses. Missouri officials could be pressured to play the game in Arrowhead, but KU officials should say “no.” Let the Tigers play their home game with KU in Kansas City, but the Jayhawks will play the historical KU-MU game in Memorial Stadium.

Libya action reflects American hubris W A S H I N G T O N — The missile strikes that inaugurated America’s latest attempt at regime change were launched 29 days before the 50th anniversary of another such — the Bay of Pigs of April 17, 1961. Then the hubris of American planners was proportional to their ignorance of everything relevant, from Cuban sentiment to Cuba’s geography. The fiasco was a singularly feckless investment of American power. Does practice make perfect? In today’s episode, America has intervened in a civil war in a tribal society, the dynamics of which America does not understand. And America is supporting one faction, the nature of which it does not know. “We are standing with the people of Libya,” says Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, evidently confident that “the” people are a harmonious unit. Many in the media call Moammar Gadhafi’s opponents “freedom fighters,” and perhaps they are, but no one calling them that really knows how the insurgents regard one another, or understand freedom, or if freedom, however understood, is their priority. But, then, knowing is rarely required in the regime-change business. The Weekly Standard, a magazine for regime-change enthusiasts, serenely says: “The Libyan state is a one-man operation. Eliminate that man and the whole edifice may come tumbling down.” And then good things must sprout? The late Donald Westlake gave one of his comic novels the mordant title

George Will

America’s war aim is “inseparable from —

indeed, obviously is — destruction of that regime. So our purpose is to create a political vacuum, into which we hope — this is the ‘audacity of hope’ as foreign policy — good things will spontaneously flow.”

“What’s the Worst That Could Happen?” People who do not find that darkly funny should not make foreign policy. In Libya, mission creep began before the mission did. A no-fly zone would not accomplish what Barack Obama calls “a welldefined goal,” the “protection of civilians.” So the no-fly zone immediately became protection for aircraft conducting combat operations against Gadhafi’s ground forces. America’s war aim is inseparable from — indeed, obviously is — destruction of that regime. So our purpose is to create a political vacuum, into which we hope

— this is the “audacity of hope” as foreign policy — good things will spontaneously flow. But if Gadhafi cannot be beaten by the rebels, are we prepared to supply their military deficiencies? And if the decapitation of his regime produces what the removal of Saddam Hussein did — bloody chaos — what then are our responsibilities regarding the tribal vendettas we may have unleashed? How long are we prepared to police the partitioning of Libya? Explaining his decision to wage war, Obama said Gadhafi has “lost the confidence of his own people and the legitimacy to lead.” Such meretricious boilerplate seems designed to anesthetize thought. When did Gadhafi lose his people’s confidence? When did he have legitimacy? American doctrine — check the Declaration of Independence — is that governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed. So there are always many illegitimate governments. When is it America’s duty to scrub away these blemishes on the planet? Is there a limiting principle of humanitarian interventionism? If so, would Obama take a stab at stating it? Congress’ power to declare war resembles a muscle that has atrophied from long abstention from proper exercise. This power was last exercised on June 5, 1942 (against Bulgaria, Romania and Hungary), almost 69 years, and many wars, ago. It thus may seem quaint, and certainly is quixotic, for Indiana’s Richard Lugar — ranking Repub-

lican on, and former chairman of, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee — to say, correctly, that Congress should debate and vote on this. There are those who think that if the United Nations gives the United States permission to wage war, the Constitution becomes irrelevant. Let us find out who in Congress supports this proposition, which should be resoundingly refuted, particularly by Republicans currently insisting that government, and especially the executive, should be on a short constitutional leash. If all Republican presidential aspirants are supine in the face of unfettered presidential war-making and humanitarian interventionism, the Republican field is radically insufficient. On Dec. 29, 1962, in Miami’s Orange Bowl, President John Kennedy, who ordered the Bay of Pigs invasion, addressed a rally of survivors and supporters of that exercise in regime change. Presented with the invasion brigade’s flag, Kennedy vowed, “I can assure you that this flag will be returned to this brigade in a free Havana.” Eleven months later, on Nov. 2, 1963, his administration was complicit in another attempt at violent regime change — the coup against, and murder of, South Vietnam’s President Ngo Dinh Diem. The Saigon regime was indeed changed, so perhaps this episode counts as a success, even if Saigon is now Ho Chi Minh City. — George Will is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.



Concerns about Ninth Street, “an east-west road that slices Lawrence’s YEARS central core in half,” AGO were being disIN 1986 cussed. City officials were pondering various road improvements, including a widening project. Members of the Oread Neighborhood Assn. and the Old West Lawrence Neighborhood Assn. were expressing concern about overcommercialization along the street. Plans for a conveniencestore complex at Ninth and Indiana were adding to the controversy.


Internet vigilantes pose threat Something rather interesting is happening on the Internet these days. For lack of a better term I’ll call it “Internet vigilantism.” It is, perhaps, a sign of the times and a result of the increasing political and social divisions in our country and in the world. Since I’m writing about a web phenomenon, I’ll refer to the definition of vigilante given in Wikipedia: “Vigilante justice” is sometimes spurred on by the perception that criminal punishment is either nonexistent or insufficient for the crime. Those who believe this see their governments as ineffective in enforcing the law; thus, such individuals fulfill the like-minded wishes of the community… Persons seen as “escaping from the law” or “above the law” are sometimes the targets of vigilantism.(It may target persons or organizations involved in illegal activities in general or it may be aimed against a specific group or type of activity…) Increasingly, Americans across the political spectrum view their opponents as operating “above the law” and feel the need to take actions which they believe the government has not or will not take. One such group, called simply “Anonymous” has been active in recent months in attacking conservative groups and corporations whom they believe are acting improperly. In February, Anonymous launched a web-based attack

Mike Hoeflich In my opinion, no “matter how much one

might disagree with the political activities of individuals, corporations, or political action groups, using the Internet as a forum for launching retaliatory actions is a very dangerous thing.” against the website belonging to the group Americans for Prosperity, a group which has been associated with the Koch brothers and Koch Industries. The attack was launched in response to what the group felt was unacceptable political activities by the conservative group. Soon after, another webbased attack was launched against the website of the Westboro Baptist Church, the Topeka church aff iliated with the infamous Phelps clan, which has most recently def iled a number of funerals for American military

personnel killed in action in Afghanistan and Iraq. While attributed by some sources to Anonymous, that group has denied the accusation. The examples given above are only two of the many web attacks which have brought down websites on the Internet over the past several months. Such attacks are not new, of course. For years hackers have mounted what are known as “denial of service” attacks, which overload websites and cause them to crash, but it seems to me, at least, that the current attacks are more organized and more focused than they have been in the past. In my opinion, no matter how much one might disagree with the political activities of individuals, corporations, or political action groups, using the Internet as a forum for launching retaliatory actions is a very dangerous thing. Vigilantism has never been a good way of achieving justice. Further, vigilantism has a habit of often targeting the wrong folks. All of us, regardless of political, religious, or moral persuasion depend on the Internet for multiple uses. If the Internet is to become the next battleground then it will become totally unusable. If this happens all of us will suffer. — Mike Hoeflich, a distinguished professor in the Kansas University School of Law, writes a regular column for the Journal-World.

Cottonwood, Inc., was planning a fund-raising campaign to generate YEARS $200,000 to AGO finance “a center IN 1971 for the education, training and welfare of mentally and physically handicapped children and adults.” The center was to be built on a 37acre site in southwest Lawrence which was owned by Cottonwood’s non-profit organization.


From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for March 23, 1911: YEARS “Mrs. Wiley’s AGO cooking school is IN 1911 going out in a veritable blaze of glory. This is the last day and each day has seen more people turned away than the day before. The only mistake that was made in this was the smallness of the hall. The large F. A. A. hall should have been secured. This would have accommodated all. Mrs. Wiley is a great teacher. She has a kind, motherly way about her that appeals to the women. They see her earnestness and listen attentively to what she has to say.” [Advertisement] “Let electricity do your work and lighting. Engage the electric household servants to do your work, they will do it better and cheaper than any other servants. Are the electric coffee percolator, toaster, chafing dish and other electric cooking utensils getting your meals for you? Is the electric vacuum cleaner doing your house cleaning? Have you given the electric washing machine and the electric iron your laundry work to do? Is the electric sewing machine motor doing your spring sewing? If you do not have these electric household servants you will find it to your advantage to give them a trial. Lawrence Railway & Light Co.” — Compiled by Sarah St. John

Tom Keegan

Path for KU not easy Call me stupid — it wouldn’t be the first time — but I never have understood the cliché that goes something like this: “The bracket really has opened up.” It becomes a fashionable phrase whenever multiple low seeds advance to the same regional site. It was uttered in 2008, when the three teams that joined Kansas in Detroit were No. 3 Wisconsin, No. 10 Davidson and No. 12 Villanova. KU had little trouble getting past Villanova and advanced to a regional final matchup against Davidson. Some opined then that KU was “lucky” that Davidson advanced because it was seeded seven spots lower than Wisconsin. Funny, but Kansas didn’t look so lucky when coach Bill Self dropped to his knees and Davidson’s final shot hung in the air for six or eight days before missing. Heavy underdogs tend to play loose. Plus, Davidson wasn’t “lucky” to defeat Georgetown before knocking off Wisconsin, it was better than the Hoyas. One problem with the whole concept that upsets make a bracket “open up,” giving a favorite such as KU an easy path to the Final Four, is that it elevates the selection committee to Solomon status. If a higher seed automatically is better than a lower one, why bother playing the games? Just have the four No. 1 seeds play it off in Houston. The bracket has “opened up for KU” talk rages again, louder even than three springs ago. This time, the seeds are 10, 11 and 12 joining the Jayhawks in the Southwest. Sure, Richmond, Virginia Commonwealth and Florida State don’t have as much talent as Notre Dame, Purdue and Louisville, but it’s not the team that has the best basketball players that wins, it’s the one that plays the best basketball. KU’s Friday night opponent, Richmond, has won nine in a row, seven by double digits. During a hot-and-cold nonconference schedule, double-digit victories against Purdue and VCU drew national attention for the Spiders. Which brings us to VCU, an 11 seed. The widespread lambasting of the seeding committee for letting the Rams into the field seemed justified, but they proved they belonged by riding 5-foot-10 water bug of a point guard Joey Rodriguez to three victories in five days. The Rams blasted USC, Georgetown and Purdue by an average margin of 16.3 points and Rodriguez had 23 assists and three turnovers. Going into its game against VCU, Purdue had allowed two teams to score more than 70 points in a game: Ohio State (87) and Michigan State (74). With Rodriguez delivering the ball on time, on target, to a hard-cutting teammate freed by a series of screens, the Rams slaughtered Purdue, 94-76. And the Jayhawks are supposed to do back flips because VCU advanced? Florida State went 3-3 when 6-9 power forward Chris Singleton was sidelined by a foot injury, and 20-7 in games with Singleton, including a victory against Duke. Five of those seven losses — Ohio State, Florida, Butler, North Carolina twice —came against teams in the Sweet 16, four against teams seeded first or second. Sure, Kansas will have the best basketball players this weekend in San Antonio, but it must play the best basketball to make it to Houston.

The meteoric rise of former Kansas University golfer Gary Woodland shot upward yet again Tuesday when groupings for this week’s PGA tour event were announced.

Price reaches 500-win mark By Ben Ward Journal-World Sports Writer

Ritch Price didn’t begin coaching for personal accolades. For Price, in his ninth year as Kansas University’s baseball coach, it’s always been about teaching the game he loves to generations of young ballplayers and watching them blossom. Some accomplishments, though, are too big to go unnoticed. Price reached the 500-win plateau as a Division I coach on Tuesday as the Jayhawks won their third straight, topping

Arkansas-Little Rock 5-3 on a blustery afternoon at Hoglund Ballpark. “I think the first thing you realize is it means you’re getting really old,” said Price, who has racked up 283 victories since coming to KU in 2002, after spending eight years as the head coach at California Polytechnic State University. “There’s nobody in America more honored to be where they are as a coach than where I am,” a beaming Price added. “I spent my whole career trying to get to Please see BASEBALL, page 3B

Angels take advantage of Royals’ errors SURPRISE, ARIZ. (AP) — The next time Jeff Francis faces the Los Angeles Angels it will be a more meaningful game for the Kansas City Royals left-hander. Francis gave up six runs, but only three earned, on five hits and a walk, while striking out seven in five innings as the Angels took advantage of five Royals errors to win 14-6 Tuesday night.

The Angels did not bring most of their regulars, but they stroked 15 hits led by Hank Conger’s three hits, including a home run, and three RBIs. Peter Bourjos also homered, while minor league outfielder Clay Fuller hit a grand slam in the eighth off Royals left-hander Robert Fish. The Royals and Angels open the

season against each other March 31 in Kansas City with Francis scheduled to start the second game of the season. Did Francis show his entire arsenal against the Angels in an exhibition game? “I don’t have a big arsenal to show or not show,” Francis said. “There might be a few things that I’m working on executing that I

might throw in certain situations that I might not throw (in the regular season). But for the most part it’s a fastball, it’s a curveball and it’s a change (up). “That’s what I do. That’s it.

NFL owners approve kickoff, replay changes NEW ORLEANS — The NFL will move kickoffs up 5 yards to the 35-yard line, keep touchbacks coming out to the 20 and allow the number of players in a blocking wedge to remain at two. Kick coverage players now will be limited to lining up 5 yards or fewer from the spot of the kickoff. Team owners also voted Tuesday to make all scoring plays reviewable by the replay official and referee. But they tabled a proposal to ban players launching themselves to make a tackle, and will reconsider it in May. The league’s competition committee proposed placing the ball at the 25 after touchbacks on kickoffs and banning the wedge altogether. Several coaches expressed concern about making too many changes to kickoffs, also saying bringing touchbacks out 5 more yards would affect field position too much. Coaches worried about an increase in touchbacks from the 16 percent of kickoffs last season. “Any time there’s a touchback and now it’s not coming to the 20,” Saints coach Sean Payton said, “I think that that probably was the most drastic of the four or five items that constituted one rule.” Making kickoffs safer was the objective, and Payton believes the owners met it, voting 26-6 for the new rule. “The bottom line is it’s ... the highest risk of injury play,” he said.

BOULDER, COLO. (AP) — The Colorado Buffaloes turned a snub into a spark, riding the sting of disappointment all the way to Madison Square Garden. They’re in the Final Four, a big deal — even if it’s in the NIT instead of the NCAA Tournament. Alec Burks led the way to the Big Apple, scoring 25 points and grabbing 10 rebounds as Colorado held off Kent State 81-74 on Tuesday night to advance to the semifinals. Ignored by the NCAA selection committee, Colorado has used the oversight as motivation, routing Texas Southern and California by a combined 31 points. The Buffs had to hang on against pesky Kent State, converting 4 of 5 free throws in the final 1:13 to advance. The Buffs (24-13) will play the winner of Alabama and Miami next Tuesday as they try to capture their first NIT crown since 1940. “We’re showing everyone we should’ve been in the (NCAA) Tournament,” said Burks, who had an IV at halftime as he battled a bug that zapped his strength. “I feel like we’re a tough team, so we just bounced back from the disappointment.” Justin Greene finished with 20 points for the Golden Flashes (25-12), who were playing their third straight NIT game on the road. “We knew we were going to be on the road in every round and we just wanted to come out and play hard and be a scrappy bunch like we are,” Greene said. “Give ourselves a chance to win down the stretch. “Unfortunately, we didn’t get it done tonight.” Colorado took control late in the second half when Marcus Relphorde converted a three-point play to make it 69-67 Buffs and Burks hit a reverse layup to extend the lead to four with 4:29 remaining. Try as they might, the Golden Flashes couldn’t tie the game back up as the Buffaloes punched their ticket to New York. Burks dribbled out the final seconds near midcourt, setting off a celebration as Frank Sinatra’s “New York, New York” blared over the loudspeakers. “We’re trying to change the culture around Colorado basketball,” Burks said. “This shows it’s a bright future for everybody. “Everyone wants to go to New York and play basketball.” Especially when Houston — site of this year’s Final Four — was never an option, despite the fact that many analysts thought the Buffaloes deserved a spot in the 68team field.

NFL Goodell: No plan for replacements NEW ORLEANS — Owners haven’t talked about using replacement players if the NFL’s first work stoppage since 1987 stretches on, Commissioner Roger Goodell said Tuesday, and the league might not keep its last contract offer on the table if bargaining doesn’t resume soon. “We have not had any discussions or consideration of replacement players,” Goodell said at a news conference closing the annual owners meetings. “It hasn’t been discussed, it hasn’t been considered, and it’s not in our plans.”

Cowboys’ Bryant ejected from mall DALLAS — Dallas Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant was ejected from an upscale Dallas shopping mall after a dispute over the sagging pants worn by him and some companions. A Tuesday police statement says officers working off-duty Saturday as security at NorthPark Center encountered Bryant and three companions wearing the drooping pants. According to the statement, when the officers asked the four to pull up their trousers, Bryant launched into a profanity-laced tirade that prompted the officers to escort the four from the mall. Police say Bryant refused to leave, however, until his “representative” could arrive and he parked in a fire lane until a friend arrived and persuaded him to leave. No charge was filed. Bryant’s agent, Eugene Parker, declined to comment. The Dallas Cowboys did not respond to requests for comment.

COURTS Bonds’ trial begins SAN FRANCISCO — Barry Bonds admits using steroids during his baseball career, his lawyer told a jury Tuesday. The catch is that Bonds’ personal trainer misled him into believing he was taking flax seed oil and arthritis cream. “I know that doesn’t make a great story,” Allen Ruby said during his opening statement at the home run leader’s perjury trial. “But that’s what happened.” Assistant U.S. Attorney Matt Parrella called such claims “ridiculous and unbelievable” and portrayed Bonds as a liar during his first chance to present the government’s position. And so the crux of the criminal case against Bonds was laid before an eight-woman, fourman jury as the testimony phase of the trial got under way. Bonds has pleaded not guilty to four charges of lying to a grand jury in 2003 when he denied knowingly taking steroids and one count of obstruction.

Lawrence Taylor gets probation NEW CITY, N.Y. — The teenage girl at the center of the sex-crimes case against football great Lawrence Taylor made a surprise appearance at his sentencing Tuesday, eager to declare that he should be behind bars.

COLLEGE BASKETBALL Agent: Anderson, MU seek extension COLUMBIA, MO. — Missouri coach Mike Anderson’s agent says he is negotiating a new contract with the school amid continued reports that Arkansas is trying to lure him away.

He added that while “nothing is imminent” he expects “some resolution ... in the next few days.”

Richmond recalled By Gary Bedore

Those pundits penciling in Kansas University’s basketball team as an automatic winner against unheralded Richmond on Friday in San Antonio may be forgetting one thing. Richmond of the Atlantic 10 Conference actually defeated KU, 69-68, on Jan. 22, 2004, in Allen Fieldhouse. “They weren’t nervous playing us in Allen Fieldhouse ... they won’t be worried playing us in San Antonio,” KU coach Bill Self said before practice on Tuesday in Allen Fieldhouse, where his eight KU teams have compiled a 129-7 record. The only other nonconference losses in Allen in the Self era have been to Oral Roberts and Nevada. “It was Jerry Wainwright’s team. I remember that well because he’s reminded me of that several times that he was actually the one in charge when they did that,” Self said of Wainwright, current Spiders’ coach Chris Mooney’s predecessor at the Richmond, Va., school. Former KU guard Keith Langford played on that KU team with the likes of Wayne Simien, Aaron Miles, J.R. Giddens and David Padgett. “KU is playing Richmond? Richmond, I will have my revenge... vicariously of course ... Let’s get it,” Langford, a pro player in Russia, wrote on Twitter this week. KU junior Tyshawn Taylor


part of us winning. Last three years, really,” junior guard Tyshawn Taylor said. “Maybe not so much his freshman year, when they won it all, but the last three years, we’ve won a lot of games because Tyrel made some big shots for us. We call him ‘Big Shot Ty,’ and he got that name for a reason.” There were several marquee pit stops along Reed’s road to 131 wins during the last four seasons. In 2008, the Jayhawks won the national championship in San Antonio, a city they’ll return to this week to prepare for their Sweet 16 match-up with Richmond on Friday. Reed also suited up for three victories in Big 12 tournament championship games. He was there when KU coach Bill Self won his 200th game as a Jayhawk and 400th game all-time. And, last year, in early March, Reed contributed four points and 17 minutes toward the 2,000th victory in Kansas history.

Wesley can’t go: KU sophomore red-shirt Justin Wesley did not make the trip to Tulsa for KU’s wins over Boston University and Illinois last week and cannot travel to San Antonio with his teammates today in advance of Friday’s game against Richmond. “Transfers cannot travel (in accordance with NCAA rules),” Self explained on Tuesday. Wesley, who is Langford’s brother, transferred to KU from Lamar. He has practiced this season, but not played in games, in accordance with transfer rules. ●

Jayla still in D.C.: TNT/TBS announcer Craig Sager was incorrect during last Sunday’s broadcast when he said Thomas Robinson’s sister, Jayla, had moved to Lawrence.

hawk. It came on Nov. 9, 2007, and Reed, then just a freshman, scored 11 points on 4-of5 shooting in 11 minutes as KU topped Louisiana-Monroe, 107-78, at Allen Fieldhouse. “Now that you say that, I remember the game,” Reed said. “First regular season game as a Jayhawk, it was just fun being out there.” That fun has continued throughout the years, whether his numbers have been up or down. Reed averaged just six minutes and two points per game as a freshman, but Kansas won 37 games and a national title. His numbers jumped to 21 minutes and 7 points per game the next year and KU’s win-total stayed high at 27. Last season, Reed’s numbers dipped a little, as he played just 16 minutes a game and averaged 5 points per outing. KU won 33 games. And this year, with Reed starting all 36 contests and averaging 10 points a game, KU’s win total has remained elite. The Jayhawks are 34-2 entering Friday’s game. “Kansas is a winning program,” sophomore Travis Releford said. “So if you decide to stay here four years, you’re gonna be a part of a lot of wins.” With a maximum of four games remaining in his college career, Reed’s eyes and

He blasted it 287 yards, stunning even NBC’s ultra-critical commentator, Johnny Miller. But it was Woodland’s improved putter that was most responsible for his first PGA tour victory. During Sunday’s final round, he made a remarkable 17 of 17 putts inside of 20 feet. “I was very conservative this week,” Woodland told after the victo-

L ENEXA — The Free State baseball team opened up its season with a 12-3 rout against St. James Academy on Tuesday. Free State’s Tim Lewis went 2-for-4 with a triple and three RBIs. Colin Toalson added a home run and Preston Schenck was 1-for-3 with a double.

Toalson earned the victory for the Firebirds, striking out five in 2 2⁄3 innings. Free State pitchers struck out 15 St. James batters. Cody Kukuk started the game for the Firebirds, striking out eight in three innings. Tim Lewis pitched the seventh inning and struck out two. “It was good to get the first one under our belts,”

While the process and preparation at the plate has remained the same, as the hits have begun to pile up and the individual batting averages have started to climb, Price has noticed an improvement in demeanor in the dugout. “I think the thing is, we’re playing at a really high level now,” Price said. “We’re playing well defensively, we’re pitching to contact, we’re making big outs when we need them, we’re executing our offense, getting runs without base hits, and starting to get warmed up with the bats.” As the Jayhawks (10-10) prepare for a three-game series at Texas A&M this weekend, Price doesn’t have any lavish celebration planned following his 500th win. He’ll simply call his three sons — Ritchie, Ryne, and Robby — and enjoy the evening with his wife, Cindy.

Reed on Tuesday gave an update on his left foot injury that will require surgery after the season. “It’s fine. It’s still there attached to the leg,” he said of his foot, which has a lingering stress reaction. “It’s still sore, sore after most all our games.” Reed only practices fulltime the day before games. “It’s nagging, constant pain. I’d explain ... it’s really not my heel but my ankle. It’s like having a rock in your shoe all the time,” Reed said. “It never goes away. It’s most sore in the morning. That’s when it’s most stiff. I tape it up. I may take some meds to make the pain go away. Once I get it going, once I start playing, I usually don’t think about it.”

Richmond celebrating Sweet victories for Baylor, double for Spiders, Rams Oklahoma and Texas A&M BIG 12 WOMEN IN THE NCAA TOURNAMENT

Baylor 82, West Virginia 68 W A C O , T E X A S — Brittney Griner spent much of the first half watching from the Baylor bench. The Lady Bears held on just fine until she could get back in the game. Griner had 30 points even after sitting on the bench the final 9 minutes of the first half, and top-seeded Baylor beat West Virginia on Tuesday night to advance to the NCAA Tournament’s round of 16 for the sixth time in eight years. Baylor (33-2) already had a 14-point lead and Griner had 10 points when she picked up her second foul, but West Virginia managed to only trim that deficit to 11 by halftime. Griner started the second half with an easy layup after a lob pass from Odyssey Sims. When the Mountaineers (2410) later scored nine straight points, Griner ended that surge with a blocked shot followed by a strong inside basket. Baylor next plays Wisconsin-Green Bay.

Oklahoma 88, Miami 83 CHARLOTTESVILLE , V A. — Danielle Robinson scored six straight points after Miami pulled even for the first time since early in the game, and sixth-seeded Oklahoma beat the third-seeded Hurricanes in the women’s NCAA Tournament. Whitney Hand scored a career-high 27 points to lead the Sooners (23-11), who will move on to the Dayton Regional two victories away from a third straight trip to the Final Four. Shenise Johnson scored 25 points to lead Miami (28-5), including the jumper with 3:26 to go that tied it 79-all. The Hurricanes didn’t score again until Sylvia Bullock’s basket inside with 47 seconds to play. That made it 85-81, but Hand hit two free throws with 41 seconds to go, restoring the six-point lead, and the Hurricanes’ comeback came up short.

Texas A&M 70, Rutgers 48 BOSSIER CITY, LA. — Danielle Adams’ dominance on the inside and her accuracy from

the perimeter was too much for Rutgers to handle. Adams had 28 points and 11 rebounds, and Texas A&M stormed into the third round of the NCAA Tournament with a victory over Rutgers. Syndey Carter added 14 points and Tyra White had 11 for the second-seeded Aggies (29-5), who were upset in last year’s second round but this time have strung together victory margins of 20-plus points in each of their first two tournament games. April Sykes scored 21 for seventh-seeded Rutgers (2013), which stayed close for the first 15 minutes of the game before the Aggies began to take command. Erica Wheeler added 12 points for the Scarlet Knights, who were held to 36.5 percent shooting, while A&M shot 46.2 percent. The Aggies opened up their first double-digit lead when fast-break layups by White and Carter made it 36-24 early in the second half. The Aggies move on to Dallas for their third-round game next weekend against Georgia, which advanced with a 6159 victory over Florida State.

RICHMOND, VA. — Rally over here, rally over there, rallies planned all around Richmond as the city embraces having two teams advance to the round of 16 in the NCAA Tournament. Take a bow Richmond and VCU. The Spiders and Rams have made Richmond the first city since Los Angeles in 2007 to send two teams to the round of 16 in the same year. And Richmond also boosts the same number of teams left in the tournament as the Big East. Both teams depart today to San Antonio and Richmond’s own canal walk will be the site of a community pep rally. The celebration will be highlighted by the unfurling of a huge banner showing television commentator Dick Vitale preparing to eat crow. “We wanted to poke a little fun at him because he was so wrong about our city,” said Jack Berry, executive director of Venture Richmond, an economic development group focused of promoting downtown. He said the image will show Vitale holding a plate of crow with the words “Eat Crow Baby.” Vitale and other basketball experts lambasted the NCAA selection committee for including VCU in the field ahead of other teams they deemed more worthy. In response, the Rams have gone on an impressive NCAA Tournament run, beating three schools from power conferences by an average of better than 16 points. VCU

plays Florida State on Friday night, after Richmond takes on Kansas. The atmosphere at VCU is much different than it was a few weeks ago, after the Rams lost five of eight games in February, seemingly dashing their NCAA Tournament hopes. When they failed to win the Colonial Athletic Association tournament, fans wished them luck in the NIT. “It’s been crazy, everybody beeping their horns and people congratulating you and stuff,” point guard Joey Rodriguez said after he returned to campus from the Rams’ stunningly dominant victories in Chicago. “A couple of weeks ago, they were like, what are these guys doing?” Richmond Mayor Dwight C. Jones said he expects a huge turnout for the rally, and he was still working Tuesday night hoping to arrange travel to San Antonio so he can support the teams. “I would like nothing more than to be there,” he said. The schools intend to transport students to the rally after the fans gather to see their team off, and there will be free t-shirts celebrating the tandem handed out at the celebration. The university presidents will ride up the canal in boats decorated in their school colors to a dock for the pep rally, and they will be greeted by Mayor Dwight C. Jones and a band. “It’s not San Antonio,” Berry said, “but we have canal boats, too.” Right now, VCU and Richmond own the city. During the season, Richmond belonged to the Spiders.

In the annual meeting of the teams, the Spiders rolled on their home court, 72-60. They led by as many as 30 and ended a 6-year losing streak to the Rams. But that was on Dec. 11. If they meet again this weekend, the winner would advance to the Final Four. “It’s really interesting to be a city that has two schools not only in the Sweet 16 of the same tournament, but in the same region,” Richmond forward and city native Justin Harper said. “We could potentially end up playing each other down the road if we both continue to take care of business. I think it’s pretty cool.” Harper isn’t getting ahead of himself, pointing out, “We need to focus on Kansas first.” But the rivals will be be pulling for each other in Texas. “Even though they’re a big rival of ours, after we get done playing them, we pull for Richmond all year long,” Rams coach Shaka Smart said. “People are going to talk about for a long, long time: ‘Hey, 2011, that was the year that the Rams and the Spiders went to the Sweet 16’ and who knows what else? Maybe we’ll play in the Elite 8. That would be phenomenal.” Unless you are, for instance, the mayor. “I don’t know what I’m going to do if they end up playing each other,” Jones said. “That’s going to be pretty dicey.” Before they return to their own sides of the fence, should both teams win Friday night, fans of both will come together to enjoy something that may never happen again.

Thin asparagus spears not always more tender Q:

I’ve always been told that thin asparagus spears are more tender than thick ones. Is that true?


Actually, it is a tossup. Thin spears tend to have more concentrated fibers than thick spears. This keeps the less juicy flesh from getting in between the fibers. Fatter spears have fibers that are separated more by the flesh. Thick asparagus spears are a result of older plants (some produce for 20 years) and the variety of asparagus. If you go to Pendleton’s Country Market east of Lawrence, John and Karen Pendleton say, “Medium and thicker spears are equally tender and flavorful.” I have to agree — I have enjoyed many thicker asparagus spears from their market, and they are tender and scrumptious. So which do you use? This depends on the cooking method. Thick spears are

Lighten up guacamole with spring peas By Jim Romanoff For The Associated Press

The flesh of a ripe Hass avocado is so luxuriously buttery and creamy you know from the first bite that it’s loaded with fat. The great news is that it nevertheless is good for you. The fat that’s in an avocado is mostly the healthier monounsaturated kind, similar to olive and nut oils. Avocados also contain loads of healthful nutrients and antioxidants. And if all these nutritional bonuses weren’t enough, research has shown that adding avocado to a plain green salad helps your body absorb more of the nutrients from the other ingredients. Still, even good fats are high in calories. So for this recipe we figured out a way to get all the benefits of avocado while cutting a bit of the fat. This bright green sweet pea and avocado guacamole is a spring-inspired version of the classic dip, and has a fresh, crisp flavor that is brightened by plenty of f ire-roasted chilies, lime juice and chopped fresh cilantro. The sweet baby peas lighten the guacamole while adding impressive amounts of vitamins. Use this dip as you would a traditional guacamole.

SWEET PEA AND AVOCADO GUACAMOLE 2 cups frozen baby peas, thawed 1 medium Hass avocado 1 small red onion, finely chopped 4-ounce can fire-roasted green chilies, drained 1/4 cup lime juice 2 garlic cloves, minced 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin 1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

In a food processor, combine the peas, avocado, onion, chilies, lime juice, garlic, cumin and salt. Process until smooth, scraping down the sides of the processor bowl with a rubber spatula as needed. Add the cilantro and pulse until just blended. Makes about 2 1/2 cups (12 servings).

good for broiling, grilling and roasting as they withstand dry heat cooking better than thin spears. When steaming or stir-frying, choose thin spears for quick cooking. To get in the mood for spring, here is an asparagus recipe that you may want to try. Also, find several more asparagus recipes by checking out Pendleton’s website at for everything from soup to pasta salad and even asparagus cookies.

ASPARAGUS WITH GREMOLATA SAUCE 1 pound asparagus, washed and trimmed 1 teaspoon olive oil 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic (1/2 clove) 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice 1 tablespoon fresh minced parsley, optional

In a large fry pan over medium heat, stir-fry asparagus in about 2 tablespoons water


crumbly. There will be flour left over, and that’s OK. The dough took what it wanted. Knead the dough by sort of pinching and stretching it between your fingers for about five minutes. Do not fold and turn it like you would with bread dough — it won’t reincorporate like that kind of dough does. When you’re finished, wrap it in plastic wrap and let it rest for a half-hour. When you’re ready to make noodles, get out your handy-dandy pasta maker. I love a good kitchen gadget, and although I try my darndest to avoid owning unitaskers, the pasta maker is a pretty nifty thing, and let’s face it, I’m not rolling out pasta dough by hand. Use your palms to sort of flatten your dough as best you can into an oval, and then begin running it through the pasta maker. Starting at the largest setting, crank it through, and keep cranking it through on a smaller and smaller setting each time. You might want to run it though the tiniest setting more than once. The cool thing about the pasta is that it is really resilient and almost acts like fabric. I was afraid to mess with it, thinking it would tear and stick and be a mess, but it doesn’t. It’s thin and delicate looking, but it really holds together well and doesn’t get holey or gooey. For ravioli, you just need the large, wide sheets that the pasta maker creates. If you wanted spaghetti or linguini, you’d need to run the sheets through a secondary slicing attachment, which we did a little of just to see the results. Miraculous! To make ravioli, though, you just need to lay your gorgeous pasta (so yellow and vibrant in color, nothing like what you see in the store) out on a lightly floured surface, and start putting in filling on the side of the pasta closest to you. Leave half of the pasta sheet empty, you’re going to fold it over the top. Adam is fancy so he used a piping bag, but depending on what you were putting in, you could just spoon it on. Leaving a couple of inches in between dollops, run all the way down the sheet of pasta. Next, whip up an egg with

(add more if needed to prevent burning) for 4 minutes or until crisp-tender. Add olive oil, lemon peel and garlic. Stir for 30 seconds with the asparagus. Sprinkle with lemon juice and heat thoroughly. Transfer to platter. Sprinkle with parsley and serve. Note: 1 medium lemon yields 3 tablespoons juice, 2-3 tablespoons rind or zest. Makes 4 servings.

The pasta, when finished in such a flavorful broth, made me feel like I was in a French restaurant in some provincial town, all cozy and rich and full of comforting warmth and taste.” a fork for a wash, and with a pastry brush, paint all the way around the filling and up to the edges. Then fold the rest of the pasta over the top of the filling, and press around and between each pile of filling. Adam had a medium-sized pastry cutter that he used to create perfect circles. You could probably use a round cookie cutter or a biscuit cutter with similar results. Remember that your pasta is resilient, but it’s not made of steel. We tossed the raviolis into a casserole dish as we finished and were able to pile it several layers high. When it was time to cook, Adam poured some duck and rabbit consommé (more on that next time) over the top with a few cooked carrots and baked it at 350 degrees. You could boil it, and that would be traditional, but fresh pasta needs so little to cook, boiling would be overkill and really would risk exploding fillings, and we just can’t have that. The pasta, when finished in such a flavorful broth, made me feel like I was in a French restaurant in some provincial town, all cozy and rich and full of comforting warmth and taste. I began to think of making pasta and cooking it in broth every day. And then I looked at my kitchen, and reminded myself that this is, indeed, a special occasion thing and not to be trifled with too regularly. Still, one can get carried away when she’s eating the equivalent of food made at Chez Panisse right in her own house. Soon, I’ll tell you about the rabbit (we ground him up in a grinder attachment on my KitchenAid! Finally, it’s getting it’s proper usage!) and the consomme, but for now, just go think about making pasta. Adam gave me his pasta maker, so I have it, sitting in a place of honor on my kitchen table, and I know how to use it. Come over, and we’ll whip up some spaghetti. Damn, I feel cool.

Q: What is a gremolata? A: A gremolata is a simple Italian garnish made with fresh minced parsley, garlic and lemon peel. It is sprinkled over osso buco (an Italian dish made using veal shanks) but it can also be eaten with fish, chicken, steak, vegetables or stirred into a pot of fresh fettuccine or soup. Here’s another recipe using a gremolata dressing that was featured in the National Nutrition Month recipes, courtesy of John Wiley & Sons, from “The Healthy Beef Cookbook” by National Cattlemen’s Beef Association & American Dietetic Association.

SIRLOIN WITH SUGAR SNAP PEAS AND PASTA SALAD WITH GREMOLATA Water 2 cups fresh sugar snap peas 2 cups cooked gemelli or corkscrew

pasta 1 cup grape or teardrop tomatoes, cut in halves Gremolata dressing: 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice 2 tablespoons olive oil 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley 2 cloves garlic, minced 2 teaspoons freshly grated lemon peel 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/8 teaspoon pepper 3 cloves garlic, minced 1 teaspoon pepper 1 boneless beef top sirloin steak, cut 3 1/4 inch thick (about 1 pound) Salt, as desired Freshly grated lemon peel Chopped fresh parsley (optional)

Bring water to boil in large saucepan. Add peas; cook 2 to 3 minutes until crisp-tender. Drain; rinse under cold water. Combine peas, pasta and tomatoes in large bowl. Set aside. Whisk Gremolata Dressing ingredients in small bowl until well-blended. Toss 2 tablespoons dressing with pasta

mixture. Set aside. Combine garlic and pepper; press evenly onto beef steak. Place steak on rack in broiler pan so surface of beef is 2 to 3 inches from heat. Broil 9–12 minutes for medium-rare to medium doneness, turning once. Carve steak into thin slices; season with salt, as desired. Add steak slices and remaining dressing to pasta mixture; toss to coat evenly. Garnish with lemon peel and parsley, if desired. Makes 4 servings.

New Martha Stewart cookbook Recipes takes mystery out of pastry CONTINUED FROM PAGE 8B


By Michele Kayal

1 cup peanut butter 1 1/4 cups powdered sugar 1 cup corn syrup 1 1/4 cups powdered milk

For The Associated Press

Whoever coined the phrase “easy as pie” clearly didn’t bake much. Enter Martha Stewart... Again. Stewart’s latest cookbook — simply named “Pies and Tarts” — offers more than 1 50 recipes whose clear instructions, gorgeous photos and brevity (all recipes fit on one page) take the intimidation out of pastry. Organized by category from “classic” (think apple) to “free-form” (no pie plate handy?) to “artful” (double lattice crusts, shingled leaves), the book lets users pick pies according to their skill and occasion. From savory tarts to milehigh meringues, the range of pastries offered makes the book useful for dinner or dessert, winter or summer, weeknights and weekends. Mini chicken potpies with herbed crust make a hearty winter meal, while vegetable tartlets filled with zucchini and tomatoes are an elegant summer lunch. Everyday desserts such as the fruit tart with a cookielike crust can be made all year long with whatever’s in the market, and free-form galettes — in which the dough is simply rolled and folded over a mound of fresh fruit — are easy enough for a busy Tuesday night. Even special occasion desserts like billowy Key lime pie with graham cracker crust and dainty tartlets filled with persimmon and caramel cream appear straightforward. For the holidays, you’ve got Neapolitan Easter pie filled with wheat berries and ricotta and a berry tart snuggled into a macaroon-like crust of coconut and egg white. And it is flour- and dairy-free for Passover. True to the formula of Stewart’s books, an instructional chapter offers the 1-2-3 of crust making, excellent tips about freezing ingredients so you’re ready when guests pop by, and a graduated lesson on mastering piemaking skills from singlecrust affairs to dried-fruit compotes with star-lattice designs. Who knows? Maybe it was Stewart who called pie-making “easy.” ●

This simple berry-topped tart is perfect for Passover. It sports a coconut crust that is both chewy and crispy, a pudding-like vanilla-almond filling and mounds of fresh fruit. Start to finish: 1 hour 15 minutes (plus cooling)

Mix all ingredients together. This dough may be eaten. Note: Kids love it they can make their own play dough to play with and it is totally safe to eat afterwards — just have them wash their hands before playing with it. — Recipe from

CRISPY WINTER VEGETABLE SALAD 4 cups broccoli florets 2 large carrots, peeled and sliced thin 1 large red bell pepper, seeded and sliced thin 1 bunch radishes, cut in half 2 stalks celery, sliced thin 1 bottle (8-ounce) fat-free Italian salad dressing 1 bag (1 pound) salad mix

Combine broccoli, carrots, red pepper, radishes, and celery with salad dressing; toss. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 15 minutes. Toss with salad mix before serving. — Recipe from

6 cups powdered sugar 1 package cream cheese, softened (8 ounces) 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla 6 ounces (6 squares) unsweetened chocolate, melted 3-4 tablespoons milk 1 1/2 cups chopped nuts


COCONUT AND BERRY PASSOVER TART For the crust: 2 cups unsweetened shredded coconut 1/2 cup sugar 2 large eggs, separated 1 tablespoon vanilla extract 1/4 teaspoon salt For the filling: 1/2 vanilla bean, halved lengthwise 1/2 cup vanilla soy milk 4 tablespoons sugar, divided 2 teaspoons arrowroot or cornstarch 2 tablespoons almond paste 1 cup almond flour 1/2 cup soy cream cheese (preferably Tofutti) 5 tablespoons apricot jam 4 cups mixed fresh berries, such as sliced strawberries, blueberries and raspberries

Heat the oven to 350 degrees. To prepare the crust, in a medium bowl combine the

coconut, sugar, the 2 egg whites, vanilla and salt. Press the mixture into the bottom and up sides of a 9-inch round fluted tart pan with removable bottom. Set aside. To make the filling, scrape the seeds from the vanilla bean into a small saucepan, then add the pod. Set over medium-high heat, then stir in the soy milk and 2 tablespoons of the sugar. Bring to a boil. In a small bowl, whisk together the 2 egg yolks, arrowroot and remaining 2 tablespoons sugar. Add the hot soy-milk mixture in a slow, steady stream, whisking until combined. Return the mixture to the pan, and whisk over medium heat until thickened, about 2 minutes. Discard the vanilla pod. In a large bowl, use an electric mixer on medium to beat the soy-milk mixture and almond paste for 5 minutes.

Beat in the almond flour and soy cream cheese. With an offset spatula, spread the mixture evenly over the crust. Bake for 15 minutes. Cover the edges of the tart with foil. Bake until set, another 15 to 25 minutes. Let the tart cool completely in the pan on a wire rack. Unmold. In a small saucepan over medium, heat the jam until loose. With an offset spatula, spread the jam evenly over the tart. Arrange the berries on top, and serve. Serves 8.

Time for wine? Roll out the bag in a barrel By Michelle Locke For The Associated Press

Selling wine by the glass is hot, but having half-empty bottles left over is not, something that has prompted restaurants and bars to explore new delivery systems from sophisticated preservation devices to kegs that keep wine on tap. One of the latest variations on the theme has a back-tothe-future aspect: The wine is packaged in plastic bags similar to those used in boxed wines, but in this case the bag is housed in an elegant wooden barrel. “This is the reinterpretation of history,” says JeanCharles Boisset, president of Boisset Family Estates. “We wanted to create somet h i n g ve r y u n i q u e fo r restaurants and hotels and eventually for someone at home.” Boisset Family Estates runs DeLoach Vineyards in the Russian River Valley region of Sonoma County, which has been selling what they call the barrel-to-barrel concept for more than a year, and recently launched the program at the company’s St. Helena-based Raymond Vineyards. As with boxed wines, the

bag-in-barrel approach comes with the advantage of not having to ship and recycle glass bottles. And the wine stays fresh longer. According to Boisset, the unfilled 10-liter bag weighs about 68 grams, 99 percent less than a nine-liter case of empty glass bottles. So far, about 800 of the 10liter barrels have been shipped to restaurants and bars. DeLoach also recently introduced a 3-liter version for home use. The Raymond wine, a cabernet sauvignon, is available only in the 10-liter size for now. At Chicago-based Wildfire Wine & Spirits, a small chain of steak-and-seafood restaurants, director Brad Wermager said he was drawn to the concept because it was different and “we liked the idea that it was good for the environment.” Wildf ire has 30 wines available by the glass and Wermager has considered buying wine in kegs, which is another way to save on bottle waste. He likes the fact that the barrel is something that can be put on display. “It’s a good conversation piece,” he says. Bag-in-box wines have come a long way since the days when they were mostly

As with boxed wines, the bag-in-barrel approach comes with the advantage of not having to ship and recycle glass bottles. And the wine stays fresh longer. the punch line to jokes. Many have won high praise and they’re becoming a more common sight on store shelves. Still, Raymond winemaker Stephanie Putnam admits she had some qualms about the new packaging. “Of course I did,” she says with a laugh. “But I think we have really worked hard on trying to keep the wine as fresh as possible. We’re bottling the wine every three months, that way we’re really keeping it fresh and vibrant for the consumer.” At the Captain’s Tavern in Miami, Bill Bowers who owns the restaurant with wife Audrey, put the DeLoach barrel in about four months ago and “we’ve had good luck with it,” he says. The only problem is that due to state regulations he can only get the 3-liter bags, which means on a busy night the bag has to be changed

and, when the level drops, the glass can take a while to fill. Still, “the quality of the wine is excellent and the taste of the wine is excellent and people like it very much,” he says. Leslie Sbrocco, wine author and founder of sees the bagin-barrel program as part of a general evolution of wine packaging as the industry and consumers have gotten used to more than the traditional bottle and cork. In addition to wine-on-tap systems for commercial and at-home settings, boxed wine companies have upgraded the design of packaging, with a few companies opting for reusable wooden boxes. “The container is becoming less of an issue and the only way it is an issue is if we get a, ‘Wow, isn’t that cool!’ response,” says Sbrocco. “It’s cool that there’s a plastic bottle or it’s cool if there’s wine on tap or it’s cool if there’s wine in a can. That is the changing mindset of wine consumers.”

The kids


By Sarah Henning

It’s halfway through spring break, and chances are you might have already run through your list of things to do at home with the kiddos. You’ve been to the park, watched a movie, checked out the library, colored through a whole roll of easel paper. Um, so now what? Get ’em in the kitchen! Little helpers can learn the ins and outs of the kitchen by making their own post-playtime snacks. We found recipes ———— that run the gamut from healthy to sweet, warm to I’ve-been-outside-all-day cold. Of course, you’ll want to do the chopping, but pull up a stool and have the little ones watch you. They’ll be learning something over spring break, no formal reading, writing and arithmetic required (though it might sneak in there a bit).

Nuts, matzo replace flour in Passover dessert For The Associated Press

To be suitable for Passover, baked goods must be made without flour. This cake replaces it with a blend of matzo meal and ground nuts that then are flavored with honey, coconut, orange zest and spices. The result is a satisfyingly syrupysticky cake that is wonderfully delicious.

HONEY COCONUT CAKE For the cake: 1 cup sliced or slivered almonds 1 cup shredded unsweetened coconut 1/3 cup matzo meal 4 eggs 1/2 cup honey 1/4 cup sugar 1/4 teaspoon salt Zest of 1 orange 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom For the syrup: 1/2 cup water

1 cup sugar 1/2 cup honey 1/4 cup orange juice 1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom To serve: 1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut, toasted

Heat the oven to 300 degrees. Coat an 8-inch springform pan with cooking spray, then line the bottom with parchment paper. In the bowl of a food processor, pulse together the almonds, coconut and matzo until the mixture is reduced to coarse crumbs. In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the eggs, honey, sugar and salt. Beat with the whisk attachment on high until very thick, about 7 to 8 minutes. Stir in the zest, cinnamon and cardamom. Fold the coconut and almond mixture into the eggs in 2 batches. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan. Bake until a toothpick inserted at the center comes out with a few moist crumbs, 35 to 40 minutes. While the cake bakes, make the syrup. In a small saucepan over

medium-high, combine the water, sugar, honey, orange juice and cardamom. Bring to a boil and cook, stirring, until the sugar is dissolved. Set aside. When the cake is finished baking, use a skewer to poke holes across the surface of the cake. Pour 2/3 cup of syrup over the cake. Allow to cool. To serve, run a knife along the outside of the pan and remove the sides of the pan. Transfer to a serving platter and remove the bottom of the pan. Peel off the parchment paper if it doesn’t come off by itself. Top with the toasted coconut and serve with the extra syrup, rewarming if desired. Serves 8.

Homemade pasta: a tasty primer


hoops, we did it again. We wasted another entire Saturday cooking. This time, Adam and I cooked a rabbit. Lulu had stopped by one night recently with a rabbit, frozen in a grocery sack. This is the sort of thing Lulu is wont to do — stop by with frozen yard animals. (In all seriousness, she got it at an Asian market in Overland Park — not out of her yard. But I wouldn’t put it past her — girlfriend’s got chickens out there, who knows what else?) So when Adam and I were discussing our next cooking adventure, I mentioned casually that I had a rabbit in my freezer. “Rabbit ravioli!” he shouted, before I could finish my sentence. Alright, rabbit ravioli it is. Making This was perfect pasta actually an excellent is actually choice, because quite simple, if I have long wanted to learn you’re willing to cope with a to make pasta, so this was my mess. And opportunity to make pasta and because my kitchen floor is to cook a rabbit, which in nothing if not and of itself is a already a fascinating prospect. Plus, mess, this was we were going not a problem to get to use a for me.” meat grinder. Bonus! Because I am prone to starting at the end and working backward, I’m going to tell you about the pasta first, even though our first order of business was to debone a rabbit and chop a lot of vegetables for filling. Making perfect pasta is actually quite simple, if you’re willing to cope with a mess. And because my kitchen floor is nothing if not already a mess, this was not a problem for me. First, clear a decent-sized work area. We used my kitchen table because I am counterspace challenged. Also, you can sit. Onto a surface you’ve dusted with flour, make a little mountain of flour. Adam likes King Arthur’s brand flour especially for this. I’d say he put about two cups on the table, then created a little well in the middle. Into the well, he cracked 6 egg yolks (and reserved the whites for another use — merengue cookies!), one whole egg and a pinch of salt. Then he took a fork and started to incorporate the flour into the eggs. By stirring around gently, the eggs will begin to pick up flour, and then more flour, and then even more, until it starts to become doughy and there’s no liquid left. At this point, it’s time to use your hands to mix in more flour and start to knead until, as Adam says, “It has what it wants,” meaning the mixture has become dough and is dry enough to not feel wet to the touch, but not

5K to fund scholarships at KU child care center Staff Reports

Ready to do the Hilltop Hustle? The 5K is a fundraiser for Hilltop Child Development Center, a nonprofit that serves the child care needs of the Kansas University community. The money will benefit low-income families who need financial assistance. The center is licensed for 295 children, ages 1 through fifth grade. About 23 percent of the families receive financial assistance. Last year, the center lost a $70,000 state grant and $6,000 in other funding — 36 percent of its funding for families in need. “The cut not only forced us to lower the amount of aid we could provide to families, but also the number of families we could help,” said Machaela Whelan, assistant

director. “I know that was hard on a lot of our families, especially students.” It would have been a deeper cut, but KU agreed to help supplement some of the loss for one year. Hilltop leaders and families are hoping for a big turnout at this year’s event. Here are the details: ● 8 a.m. Saturday, April 30. ● at the center, 1605 Irving Hill Road. ● Cost is $20 if registered by April 15, and $25 after. ● Participants get a T-shirt. ● Registration forms are available at Hilltop, Francis Sporting Goods, 731 Mass., or online at / ~msc/hilltop. There also is a 1K family run/walk that starts after the 5K. It is $5 per person or $10 per family. For more information, call the center at 864-4940.

Chin said the settlement that the company reached with U.S. authors and publishers would “grant Google signif icant rights to exploit entire books, without permission of the copyright owners.” He was particularly critical of the access Google would have to so-called “orphan works” — out-of-print books whose writers could not be located — saying the deal gave the company “a de facto monopoly over unclaimed works.”

revolve around the Internet and TV. The cash gift we are considering is not that much, but it would enable Clark to continue living comfortably under his current circumstances. I worry it means he will never learn to provide for himself. I am concerned for his financial future. I looked into setting up an IRA for him, but he has to have earned some income to qualify. My husband wants to treat as well. Or you could discover all his children equally. How that this marriage is more would you handle this situaworthwhile than you believe tion? — Worried Stepmom and be sorry you left. If you are looking for a man to fulfill your fantasies, the odds are against you. You need to ask yourself that Ann Landers question: “Are you better off with or without him?” And only you can supply the answer.

Marcy Sugar and Kathy Mitchell

Cheesy, flagrantly unoriginal, drenched in tabloid sensibility and completely over the top, “Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files” (9 p.m., Syfy) is pretty darned perfect reality television. For the uninitiated, “Fact” combines elements of “MythBusters” and that dreadful “TMZ” syndicated show. As on every “TMZ,” a panel of “experts” convenes to watch grainy footage. But instead of watching Cameron Diaz being accosted while leaving a restaurant, we’re shown footage featuring potentially supernatural activity. Like I said, “potentially.” In one clip, vacationing boaters come across an “unexplained vortex” that “appears” to be swallowing the lake and its contents and sending it to another dimension. It turns out to be a drain. In every episode, the panel dismiss the easily detected and decide to investigate two or three spooky scenes. In tonight’s season opener, they look at a photograph from the skies of Los Angeles in early 1942. Warned of a possible attack by Japanese planes, soldiers filled the night sky with klieg lights and then with a barrage of artillery. But a photo seems to show not dive bombers but a glowing saucer-shaped visitor. We’re told that this photo inspired the recent film “Battle: Los Angeles.” As on “MythBusters,” a group of enthusiasts use their various fields of expertise to either prove or debunk each paranormal clip. Like “TMZ,” “Fact or Faked” would be better as a half-hour show. But nobody’s perfect. ● Jay’s reluctance to attend the symphony with Gloria and Manny has unintended consequences on tonight’s “Modern Family” (8 p.m., ABC). Ed O’Neill has been just about flawless in this popular series as the grumpy and world-weary grandfather and stepfather Jay. His relationships with his gay son, his not-too-swift son-in-law and peculiarly precocious stepson combine a bracingly honest emotional reservation with obvious affection and warmth. He’s put to the test in this episode when his AWOL status lands him in the midst of Mitchell and Cameron’s boys’ night out with a group of friends, including the hypersensitive Pepper (guest star Nathan Lane). ● On last week’s “American Idol” (7 p.m., Fox), Karen Rodriguez performed “Love Will Lead You Back” by Taylor Dayne. But “Idol” won’t be having her back, as she became the second contestant to be eliminated this season. The remaining 11 strive to survive for two hours tonight.

Tonight’s other highlights ● New York hosts Orlando in NBA basketball (7 p.m., ESPN). ● A killer keeps his victims hanging around on “Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior” (9 p.m., CBS). ● A model father’s image unravels after a stabbing on “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” (9 p.m., NBC). ● A transplant does not go smoothly on “Off the Map” (9 p.m., ABC). ● Winona’s mistake may have legal repercussions on “Justified” (9 p.m., FX). ● Elka goes on trial on “Hot in Cleveland” (9 p.m., TV Land).

Dear Stepmom: Treating all the children equally means just that — if your husband chooses to give annual cash gifts to one, he must do it for all. And unless Clark’s mother kicks him out, the extra income is unlikely to make a big difference. You can advise Clark to save the money for his upcoming “rainy days,” but he is a grown man, and his financial future is not your responsibility.

Dear Annie: My husband and I discussed giving his five grown children annual cash gifts now instead of having them wait for an inheritance. The problem is, one of my stepsons, “Clark,” is 33 and has no interest in becoming employed. My husband has offered many times to pay for additional education, but he doesn’t want it. Clark lives with his mother and stepfather. He is a kind and thoughtful man who does not drink or use drugs. But his life seems to

Dear Annie: I am 47 years old and am living with so many regrets. I married my husband because I did not think anyone else would ask me. I have never been in love with him. Fast-forward 25 years. Our children are off on their own. I have been in counseling, and my therapist suggested I bring my husband in with me. He has refused, saying there is nothing wrong with our relationship. We are intimate several times a week, and I do everything around the house. That is all he requires of a relationship. But honestly, if he did come to counseling, how could I tell him that I am not attracted to him, that I never am aroused by him, that I love him like a brother? I am ready to ask for a divorce so I can try to find a passionate man to fall in love with. I want to feel needed and desirable. Is this a lost cause at this late stage of my life? Is it better to strike out searching for love that I may never find? Or do I stay in this safe, amicable, boring marriage? — Jennifer
