KU, Ohio State healthy, ready for rematch By Gary Bedore

NEW ORLEANS — Tyshawn Taylor had trouble concentrating fully on basketball back on Dec. 10 — the afternoon of the Kansas-Ohio State game in Allen Fieldhouse. Taylor, KU’s 6-foot-3 senior point guard, scored just nine points with 13 assists and seven turnovers in a 7867 victory over the previously undefeated Buckeyes. He had a date with the knee surgeon scheduled just 15 hours after tipoff.

“I’m not using my knee as an excuse, but I know I am not going to be in a brace tomorrow,” said Taylor, 100 percent healthy heading into a Final Four semifinal contest between KU (31-6) and the Buckeyes (31-7) at 7:49 p.m. today in the Superdome. “I won’t be worrying about my knee, worrying about making certain cuts or plants or landing on it, getting hit. I won’t be worrying about any of that, what I was worrying about in that game. That’s out the window. “Everybody’s talking

about Jared (Sullinger, OSU’s All-American who missed the first meeting with back spasms), but we also didn’t have a Jeff Withey playing like he is now,” Taylor added. Seven-foot KU center Withey had just two points, two boards and two blocks in 21 minutes that game. “We didn’t have Thomas Robinson (21 points off 7-of-9 shooting and seven rebounds) having the same game as he has now. There’s a lot of things so different with both teams because it

was so long ago. We’ve come a long way — their players and ours,” Taylor said. The fact Taylor was playing at less than full strength — he had successful rightknee arthroscopic surgery at 6 a.m., Sunday, Dec. 11, and didn’t miss a game, by the way — has not received as much attention as Sullinger’s not playing. “I don’t know if I was 75 percent or 80 percent,” Taylor said. “I was able to play 32, 33 minutes (35), and that’s all that matters.” Taylor’s 13 assists versus

the Buckeyes rank as his career high. His point-guard opponent today — 6-2 sophomore Aaron Craft — had 11 points off 4-of-11 shooting, with six assists, three turnovers and five rebounds in 38 minutes. “I mean, as many questions as I’ve answered about how good he is on defense, he must be,” Taylor said with a smile, referring to Craft. “He’ll make the game challenging, but I won’t change the things I do.” Please see KANSAS, page 4A

FINAL FOUR Who: Louisville (30-9) vs. Kentucky (36-2); Kansas (31-6) vs. Ohio State (31-7) When: Game One: 5:09 p.m. today; Game Two at 7:49 p.m. TV: CBS (Knology cable channels 5, 13, 205, 213)

Buckeye crafty, but Taylor has soulmate NEW ORLEANS — One of the smallest key players in the Final Four also happens to be one of the biggest pests. That’s so often how it works, isn’t it? His name is Aaron Craft, and teammates talk tall about him. How tall? The 6-foot-2, 190-pound Craft steals more than just the basketball, ac-

cording to backcourt-mate Lenzelle Smith Jr. “I’ve seen him steal so many souls out there on the court,” Smith said. Wow. Strong words. Couldn’t wait to bounce them off the man Craft will guard, Kansas point guard Tyshawn Taylor, a good soul. So, Tyshawn, have you

ever had your soul stolen on a basketball court? “Never,” Taylor said slowly and with wide eyes. “And I don’t plan on that changing, either. I think Aaron Craft is a terrific guard, and I think he’s a great on-ball defender, but I’m too confident in my abilities and my team’s abilities to give him that much credit.”

Smith explained what he meant. “Whenever you can guard someone who’s considered one of the top guards in the country and make them pick up the ball and panic in pressure and turn the ball over, that’s the toughest thing Please see KEEGAN, page 5A

Royals, Gordon agree on 4 years SURPRISE, ARIZ. (AP) — Alex Gordon went from a bust to busting the bank. Gordon, who had a breakout 2011 season after a mediocre first four years in the majors, agreed to a $37.5 million, fouryear deal that includes a player option for 2016 to remain with the Kansas City Royals. The team had been working on a long-term deal with Gordon for several months. It was finally anGordon nounced Friday, one week before the start of the regular season. Gordon will make $6 million this season, $9 million next season, $10 million in 2014 and $12.5 million in 2015. The player option is also for $12.5 million. “This is where I wanted to be,” Gordon said. “I’m thrilled it’s done and over with. I can look to the future now. I’m liking what I see. Our goal was to get it done by the beginning of the year, before the season started. It’s a very exciting day for me. “Ever since Dayton (Moore, general manager) came into this organization, you kind of saw something change and he turned this organization around. We’ve got a great clubhouse right now. I’m excited to be part of it. I couldn’t be happier to be here for five more years.” Gordon hit .303 with 23 homers, 45 doubles and 87 RBIs. He also won his first Gold Glove, setting a franchise record with 20 outfield assists. The Tigers’ Miguel Cabrera, the Yankees’ Robinson Cano, and the Red Sox’s Jacoby Ellsbury and Adrian Gonzalez were the only others to hit .300 with 45 doubles and 20 homers last season. Gordon, 27, was the second player picked in the 2005 draft. In 2010, Gordon hit .215 in 74 games and spent more time in the minors than he did in the majors. He entered last season with a career .244 batting average. He had hip surgery in 2009 and hit .232 with 22 RBIs in 49 games.

K.C.’s O’Sullivan baffles White Sox SURPRISE, ARIZ. (AP) — Sean O’Sullivan threw five hitless innings, Alex Gordon hit a tworun homer, and the Kansas City Royals defeated the Chicago White Sox, 7-2, Friday night. O’Sullivan, who had allowed nine hits and four runs in four innings in his previous two outings in relief, retired his first 14 batters before walking Alexei Ramirez in the fifth. That was the only base-runner for O’Sullivan. Gordon went 2-for-2 with an opposite-field homer off lefthander Eric Stults in the second inning. Eric Hosmer drove in two runs with a fifth-inning single, increasing his RBI total to a Cactus League-leading 28.

Payton to appeal suspension NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Saints coach Sean Payton is appealing his season-long suspension from the NFL for his role in New Orleans’ bounty system. And he’s not the only one looking for a little relief from the penalties handed down by commissioner Roger Goodell. General manager Mickey Loomis, assistant coach Joe Vitt and the Saints organization each decided to appeal Friday. Payton also will ask Goodell for guidance on the parameters of the suspension, which runs through next year’s Super Bowl, a person familiar with the situation told the Associated Press, speaking on condition of anonymity because the league and the Saints did not announce Payton’s plan to appeal.

Saints spokesman Greg Bensel did confirm that Loomis was appealing his eight-game suspension and, separately, the team would Payton challenge its $500,000 fine and loss of second-round draft picks this year and in 2013. Vitt, suspended for six games, is doing the same. David Cornwell, representing Vitt as head of the NFL Coaches Association, confirmed the decision in an email to the AP. Goodell last week announced the suspension of Payton, starting Sunday, for his role in connection with New Orleans’

bounty system, which offered improper cash bonuses for big hits that either knocked opponents out of games or left them needing help off of the field. Former defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, who left the Saints after last season to join the St. Louis Rams, ran the bounty program and has been suspended indefinitely. The commissioner has said since the unprecedented penalties were announced that the Saints’ coach would likely be allowed to continue working as his appeal was resolved. However, he added that the challenge would be expedited, indicating that Payton would not likely be able to add on much work time should his appeal be upheld.

Mickelson trails by two at Houston Open HUMBLE, TEXAS — Brian Davis and Louis Oosthuizen shared the lead at 11 under, and defending champion Phil Mickelson was two shots back after two days of play in the raindelayed Houston Open. The second round was suspended due to darkness at 7:36 p.m. Friday with 70 players still on the course. Houston resident Jeff Maggert was at 10 under, but he had eight holes left to play in his second round. Mickelson (70), J.B. Holmes (67), Tommy Gainey (67), and Greg Owen (69) finished their second rounds and were two shots behind the leaders at 9 under. A thunderstorm dumped 11⁄4 inches of rain Thursday, causing the backup. The players enjoyed sunny and calm conditions Friday, but the fairways were damp, and players were permitted to lift, clean and place their golf balls in the fairways.

Tebow unsure about starting NEW YORK — Tim Tebow says he is “not sure” if he’ll ever be a starting quarterback again, and that thought doesn’t concern him right now.

Ex-quarterback Leaf arrested GREAT FALLS, MONT. — Authorities say former NFL quarterback Ryan Leaf has been arrested in his Montana hometown on burglary and drug-possession charges. Great Falls Police Sgt. Dean Bennett says Leaf was arrested Friday afternoon. The circumstances surrounding Leaf’s arrest were not immediately clear. Bennett says he hasn’t seen a report detailing the allegations. Cascade County Detention Center Officer Robert Rivera says Leaf was booked on charges of burglary of a residence, theft and felony criminal possession of dangerous drugs. Leaf was freed on $76,000 bond and is scheduled to make an initial court appearance Monday. The former San Diego Chargers first-round pick has had several past run-ins with the law. In 2010, he pleaded guilty in Amarillo, Texas, to various drug charges and was sentenced to 10 years’ probation and fined $20,000.

NORMAN, OKLA. — Oklahoma All-American pitcher Keilani Ricketts threw her first career perfect game as the seventhranked Sooners beat Kansas, 8-0 in five innings, on Friday at Marita Hynes Field. Ricketts, a starter for Team USA, struck out 10 Jayhawks and retired 15 straight on the night. She also hit a solo home run in the first inning, following a homer from Sooners teammate — and Big 12 home-run leader — Lauren Chamberlain, who hit a grand slam later in the game. Kansas starter Alicia Pille started the night with an out, but then gave up the back-to-back home runs and two singles. Reliever Kristin Martinez took the mound to replace Pille and closed out the inning with two consecutive outs. Martinez held the Sooners without a hit for two more innings before OU batters reeled off four straight singles in the fourth. KU coach Megan Smith then made her second switch of the night, pulling Martinez for Ashley Spencer. The Sooners won the game by run rule after the Jayhawks committed an infield error on the next at-bat and Chamberlain slammed the door shut with the four-run homer — her 14th of the year.

KANSAS PLAYERS, COACHES AND STAFF WATCH A HALF-COURT SHOT TO END PRACTICE Friday at the Superdome. KU tonight will face Ohio State in an NCAA national semifinal in New Orleans.


Jayhawks tickled by big stage By Gary Bedore

NEW ORLEANS — The elevated court in the New Orleans Superdome takes some getting used to. “I actually did feel like I stepped onto a stage. I felt like I was about to rap,” said Kansas University guard Elijah Johnson, who has been able to practice two days in the dome heading into today’s 7:49 p.m. Final Four game against Ohio State. “The floor felt good. It felt like a make-believe court. I don’t know if it was because it was elevated or what, but the court just seemed longer. But I like it so far. I plan on having fun up there,” Johnson added. Noted Thomas Robinson: “It felt like somebody dropped us in a box or something. I’m even scared to see what it looks like when it’s filled up (75,000 fans).” Added Tyshawn Taylor: “The court is similar to the one I played on in the Sweet 16 my freshman year against Michigan State. It was in Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. It was a little bit elevated. I think this court, with it being in the Superdome, it seems a little bit big, the lights seem a little bit brighter.

KANSAS FAN LORI HOWELL, LAWRENCE, LEANS OUT to give her well wishes to KU coach Bill Self as the Jayhawks leave the court following their practice. “The court seems a little bit springy, too. It’s a stage. I’m excited. For us, it’s our biggest stage. It’s a good feeling to be here and playing on a court where it feels like you’re at center stage and everybody’s watching you.” O Taylor on the excitement of the Final Four: “For a few of us, it’s the last time we will be in this situation. Guys like myself, Thomas (Robinson, a junior who is expected to turn pro after the season), Teahan (Conner, senior), Jordan Juenemann (se-

nior) ... we’ve been here so long. It’s this time, our last time. I think because we are here, we might as well have fun. But since we’re here, why not take this thing (trophy) home with us? If you’ve got to leave (KU), you might as well leave on top. That’s how we look at it.” O Self was asked about his Final Four experience. KU won it all in 2008: “Well, I sought out a lot of advice before San Antonio. I talked to several coaches, including coach (Bob) Knight, guys that


Taylor averages 16.7 points a game with 174 assists and 128 turnovers to Craft’s 8.8 points, 178 assists and 82 turnovers. Taylor acknowledges he’d like to see one part of his game improve: his outside shooting. He’s 3-for-37 overall from three-point land in 13 NCAA Tournament games. He’s 0-for-17 in his career in domed stadiums, 0-for-11 in domes this year and 0-for-17 overall in the 2012 NCAAs. “I’ve not heard much about that this week. I’ve answered a few questions about it,” Taylor said of his dome woes. “Good thing I am not a Conner (Teahan), that I have to make threes for people to know I’m out there. I have to do other things to be effective. I am not a threepoint specialist. It doesn’t upset my game that much. I shoot a lot of them (57of-148 for 38.5 percent). I’ve not been making that many. I can still be effective in other ways defensively and offensively. I’m going to shoot them if I’m open. If I miss, I’m not go-

That’s how it’s got to be.” The Taylor-Craft match-up has received a lot of pre-game hype, as well as the 6-9 sophomore Sullinger versus 6-10 Robinson and 7-foot Withey. “It’ll be me and Thomas on him off and on,” Withey said. “He’s definitely a great player, and it’ll be fun playing against him.” Sullinger averages 17.6 points and 9.1 boards a game; Robinson 17.7 points and 11.8 boards; Withey 9.2 points, 6.2 boards with 129 blocks to Sullinger’s 36. “I was disappointed, but it didn’t really bother me that much,” Robinson said of not being able to go against Sullinger in Allen. The two became friends last summer

at various national camps. “I wanted to go against him. He’s a great player, but I knew I would get my chance Saturday (in Final Four).” Sullinger has called Robinson national player of the year. “He’s a real cool guy off the court,” Robinson said. “Like I’ve said, everybody has their opinion. I agree with him.” Of Sullinger, KU coach Bill Self said: “He’s as good a low-post scorer as there is in the country. We caught a huge break when he didn’t play the first time. He’s a terrific player. They are not the same team that we played because they improved a lot. I don’t think we’re the same team because we’ve gotten better. That first

have been there, asked them to give a guy that doesn’t know some advice on how to handle things. I thought I had a pretty good manual going into it as far as the things that you wouldn’t think mattered that do matter,” Self said. “We try to follow that as closely as possible this time. The thing about this week is, I’m tired, so I guarantee the players are tired. It’s an adrenaline rush where you get fired up, then you drop down, then you get pumped up again, it goes down. You

game seems like two seasons ago. I don’t know if it will have any impact on what happens tomorrow.” The Buckeyes have other threats, including Deshaun Thomas, a 6-7 sophomore who scored 19 points off 7-of-14 shooting vs. KU in December, and William Buford, a 6-8 senior who scored 21 off 8-for-23 shooting. OSU hit just 38.7 percent of its shots versus KU (5-of-17 on threes) on a day the Jayhawks cashed 58.3 percent, including 9-of-17 from three. Kevin Young had a big day off the bench for KU with 14 points off 6-of-8 shooting. Elijah Johnson had 15 points (5-of-7 on threes) and Travis Releford 10. “If we are going to win this game,” Taylor said, “we have to stop them from scoring. They can score one-through-five on the court. They can all score. We must be locked in defensively. Offensively, we have to run our stuff. Our stuff works. It’s been proven it works. I think we match up pretty evenly with them. It’s about players making plays in a game like this.” The winner will advance to Monday’s 8 p.m. final against either Kentucky or Louisville, who tangle at 5:09 p.m. today.

have to somehow make it be as even-keel as much as possible. You got to keep your guys off their feet, you have to keep their minds fresh, and you can’t let them have any fun. That’s a tough combination to do. “We basically try to do that in a way where they think they’re having a good time, but we’re controlling everything that’s going on.” O Itinerary: Self let his players walk down Bourbon Street on Wednesday night, but since then it has been all business. “We don’t let them go to the lobby. Family members have a time slot where they can actually see their kids up on their floor in a room, basically a kind of a suite area that our guys go gather and hang out in,” Self said. “It’s just one of those things that we’re busy enough. We got up this morning at 10. We ate breakfast at 10:15. We have been on the go and will be on the go till 6 tonight. Tonight what we’ll probably do is we’ll have a walk-through, a last walk-through, film session, let them get a movie, that’s it. “It also amazes me, it doesn’t take a lot for kids to have fun these days if they have a phone. There’s

plenty of things for them to do on that.” O Underdogs: Several Jayhawks in the locker room indicated they loved the underdog role this weekend. Self’s take on that: “I think that’s fine. I kind of like it, to be honest. We’ve been the hunted, it seems like, for a while. It’s nice to kind of be able to flip that a little bit. Even though the hunter still has to be hungrier than anybody else, it’s nice sometimes to flip that. “I don’t know if you’re a serious underdog when you won 31 games, you win your league by two games in a good league. We have kind of flown under the radar, by Kansas standards of late, which I think has been very healthy for a team that’s just trying to find themselves.” O A ring is coming: All players will receive Final Four rings. “I didn’t even know you get a ring for getting to the Final Four. I had an idea, but it dawned on me once we was getting fitted for it,” Elijah Johnson said. “I think that’s one of the points where it set in, and I realized there were only four teams left and we were all standing next to each other.”

Wesley has been here before By Matt Tait

NEW ORLEANS — The last time Kansas University forward Justin Wesley was in the Superdome for the Final Four, he was 11 years old and there to watch his brother. The year was 2003, and Wesley’s older brother, Keith Langford, was a key member on the KU squad that lost to Syracuse in that season’s national title game. Wesley can recall just about every second of that weekend, largely because the fanfare, excitement and tough loss provided such an emotional experience.

“I just remember the atmosphere was crazy, and there were a lot of people going nuts,” Wesley said. “At the end of the Syracuse game, me and (former KU forward) Nick Collison’s brother just looked at each other and started crying. We were really into it at that age.” Decked out in his brother’s No. 5 jersey — as he was every game — and sporting a suede KU bucket hat, Wesley did all he could to help give Langford a boost on the floor. “Yeah, I looked awful,” he said with a laugh. “But I was a kid.” With the tables turned

and Wesley wearing his own jersey this time around, the KU sophomore said Langford offered a little advice via telephone earlier this Wesley week. “He told me he was so happy that I got a chance to experience it, and he told me to enjoy every second of it, no matter what happens, because this is a once-in-a-lifetime deal,” Wesley said. Asked if he knew if

Langford thought very often about KU’s close call in 2003, Wesley jumped right in. “Oh, he’s still got a grudge against Syracuse,” he said. “He doesn’t talk about it much, but he’s always said how he wished he could go back and play that game again and not get that horrible charge called against him.” Times have changed, and this Superdome experience is a lot different for Wesley the 20-year-old than it was for the younger version. But like his brother, Wesley still holds on to

part of that 2003 experience and is hoping to write a different ending this time around. “Of course,” he said. “My brothers and I have such a close bond. He was hurt from that, and I was hurt from that, so, in a way, it’s kind of like I’m back here not only for me and my teammates and Jayhawk Nation, but also for him, too.” Langford, who still plays professional basketball in Israel, will not be at tonight’s 7:49 p.m. tipoff between the second-seeded Jayhawks (31-6) and second-seeded Ohio State (31-7).

OHIO STATE FORWARD JARED SULLINGER TURNS TO HIS TEAMMATES AFTER MISSING A LAYUP during a day of practices Friday at the Superdome. The Buckeyes will face KU in a national semifinal at 7:49 tonight in New Orleans.

OSU’s Craft better player than coach By Matt Tait

NEW ORLEANS — It’s a well known fact that Ohio State point guard Aaron Craft is the glue that holds the Buckeyes together, the motor that makes his team go, the tough-as-nails, lead-by-intensity player who would do anything to help his team win. What’s not as widely known is that Craft also is an up-and-coming college basketball coach. Earlier this year, while the Buckeyes were in the middle of their run to the Final Four — they’ll face Kansas University at 7:49 tonight in the second semifinal at the Superdome — Craft spent some of what little down time he had as the de facto head coach for the Ohio State intramural team known as “Turning Point.” The team, which is sponsored by former Ohio State standout and current Philadelphia 76er Evan Turner, is made up of nine OSU team managers. Having Craft pace the sideline during the team’s run to the quarterfinals was equal parts exciting and hilarious. “He’s got the clipboard, he’s on the sidelines. He really gets into ‘coaching’ us,” said third-year manager Lee Miller, using his hands to make the quotation gesture. “We really don’t listen that well, though.” Although Craft did not have the luxury of spending as much time preparing for Turning Point games as he did for his own, that did not stop him from trying. In addition to imploring his players to

HE’S NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH AARON CRAFT, IN PHOTO AT RIGHT, the Buckeyes’ point guard and “coach” of an OSU intramural team. run a few sets, the 6-foot-2 sophomore from Findlay, Ohio, spent time studying the squad’s opponents as well. “He used to give us the scouting report on the other teams based on what he saw on the other end of the court during the three minutes of warm-up time,” third-year manager Weston Strayer said. “He’d go by things like nice shoes, the arm sleeve … if a player had those, Aaron figured they were pretty good and we geared our game plan around stopping them.” After winning the intramural championship in 2011 — with Craft oc-

cupying a less prominent position on the team’s coaching staff — things did not go quite so well for Turning Point in 2012. It reached the quarterfinals, but lost before reaching the school’s intramural version of the Final Four. “We didn’t make it all the way this year,” Craft said. “But it was still a good year.” Asked if his trouble adjusting to the role of top dog may have cost Turning Point a shot at defending its title, Craft said it simply was not meant to be. “I was more of a manager last year, and I stepped it up to head

coach this year,” he said. “I thought that was a pretty solid upgrade. I was ready for it. I was biting at the bit. I had the board in my hand. I was ready to go.” Like his coach, Ohio State’s Thad Matta, Craft tried to utilize every trick in the book to give Turning Point an advantage. “He definitely liked to give the refs a hard time,” fourth-year manager Wes Hesterman said. “I think he thought he could get us a few calls.” The funny part about Craft’s time spent in charge of Turning Point, according to third-year Buckeyes manager Patrick

Ford, was that, “People usually mistake him for a team manager.” Added fourth-year manager Tim Daniels: “In fact, it happened today.” When the intramural season ended, Craft had more time to focus on guiding Ohio State’s real hoops squad to New Orleans. Now that he’s here, he hopes he can make amends for Turning Point’s loss in the quarterfinals. “It’s just fun seeing those guys outside of practice,” Craft said. “They’re there for us, and I’m just glad that we can be there for them, mess around and keep it fun.”

to do,” Smith said. “Once you do that, maybe once or twice, they start to doubt themselves as a player, and you can steal their souls.” He didn’t mean Craft is a grave-robber. Quite the contrary. “He has so many different sides to him,” Smith said. “He changes like a chameleon. Off the court, he’s the sweetest, nicest, smartest gentleman you’ll meet. On the court, he turns into a beast. He’s so little, but if I was going into a fight, I would always want him on my side.” Craft and Taylor, heading into their second confrontation of this basketball season, like having the guards they bring into battle with them. Ohio State’s Smith and KU’s Elijah Johnson have followed similar paths. Early, they concentrated on defending and on facilitating the scoring opportunities of teammates. As the season deepened, both developed into consistent scoring threats. At last check, Johnson led a reader poll asking to name the Jayhawks’ Most Valuable Player so far in the tournament, with 44 percent of the vote, quite an honor for the lone Kansas starter who did not earn Big 12 Player of the Week honors. Johnson has scored in double figures in each of the last six games and did so in less than half the games before that streak started. Smith didn’t have a double-figure scoring output in the first 14 games and has had five in the last nine. He averaged 17.5 points in the East Regional in Boston, where he made six of 10 three-point shots. Scoring opportunities abound for teammates of both schools’ AllAmericans, Ohio State center Jared Sullinger and Kansas power forward Thomas Robinson. “If they don’t double Jared, he’s going to score every time,” Smith said. “I haven’t seen Jared miss a shot against one-on-one coverage since fourth grade. Any team that doesn’t double him, it’s kind of a bad idea because he’s going to score.” Ditto for Robinson. The game has the feeling of one that could be decided at the buzzer, which would be far from a first in Superdome history. Thirty years ago in the national-title game, freshman Michael Jordan hit a jumper that pushed North Carolina past Patrick Ewing’s Georgetown team. When hard-core KU fans picture a player from their school doing the same, it’s Johnson’s hands the ball leaves. He has developed into his team’s Mr. Big Shot. Someone wanted to know Friday, does Johnson envision the same when he closes his eyes? “No, man, I’m playing ball,” Johnson said. “I can’t keep dreaming. I can’t keep dreaming. I’ve got to be conscious. I’ve got to think realistically. Now, if that happens, that happens, but I’m not going to just sit here and daze off into this fantasy world about a game-winning shot. That’s not the right focus right there.” Giving Taylor a break with point-guard duties, even when he stays on the court, is a more concrete responsibility for Johnson. Craft is not asked to do as much offensively for his team as Taylor does for his. So if Taylor senses Craft is defending him into exhaustion, he’ll tell Johnson to bring the ball up for a while until he regains his spark. It always helps to have an extra point-guard soul on hand, just in case. — Sports editor Tom Keegan can be reached at 832-7147

UK’s Davis, MU’s Haith win AP awards NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Anthony Davis was busier than any of the other players in the Final Four. The Kentucky freshman had to make the circuit of Player of the Year presentations Friday, not that he was complaining. “There were a lot of awards yesterday and today,” Davis said with a big smile. “It’s a great feeling,

especially as a freshman. I’ve been working hard and now it’s rewarding.” Davis became the first Kentucky player and second freshman to be selected The Associated Press’ Player of the Year. He picked up his latest trophy, along with Coach of the Year Frank Haith of Missouri. It was Davis’ second cer-

emony of the day, and he had to make a quick exit to get to practice, part of the preparations for the national semifinal match-up against Louisville today. “This is great to be here and hopefully we can win the national championship and accomplish our goal,” he said. “Even if we come up short we still had a great season.”

The 6-foot-10 Davis sure did. He averaged 14.3 points — on a team with six double-figure scorers — 10.0 rebounds and 4.6 blocks while shooting 64.2 percent from the field. No UK player had won the award which started in 1961, and the only other freshman to win it was Kevin Durant of Texas in 2007.

Civil War: UK vs. Louisville

Davis received 43 votes from the 65-member national media panel that selects the weekly Top 25. Balloting was done before the NCAA Tournament. Thomas Robinson of Kansas was second with 20 votes, and Draymond Green of Michigan State received the other two votes. Haith’s first season at Missouri got off to a rough

start and ended with a second-round thud in the NCAA Tournament. In between his unpopular selection to replace Mike Anderson at Missouri and the Tigers’ stunning loss to 15th-seeded Norfolk State, things went very well. Missouri won 30 games and the Big 12 tournament and was ranked in the AP poll the entire season.

CONGRATULATIONS HAWKS Thank You for A Great Season!


Loser of Bluegrass State rivalry treats loss like a ‘funeral’ NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Kentucky coach John Calipari likes to say there are no rivalry games at this point in the season. Try telling that to the Bluegrass State, where basketball’s version of the civil war — Kentucky vs. Louisville, winner plays for the NCAA title — has so divided the small state that senior citizens have actually come to fisticuffs. “The fans take it as, whoever loses, it’s their funeral, really,” Louisville senior guard Chris Smith said. “It’s really cut-throat, I would say.” The game today is the fifth time top-seeded Kentucky (36-2) and fourthseeded Louisville (30-9) have met in the NCAA Tournament. They split the previous four meetings. Basketball purists may argue Duke-North Carolina or Kansas-Missouri are the game’s biggest, most intense rivalries. But those are like quaint tea parties compared with the animosity between Kentucky and Louisville, which required government intervention to get them to schedule each other. No, think Auburn-Alabama on the hardcourt, and you get the idea. “We get along with most of them,” Kentucky fan Pat Stahl said of Louisville fans, “as long as they don’t talk to you.” Or, heaven forbid, say something at a dialysis appointment. A 71-year-old Louisville fan punched a 68-year-old Kentucky fan earlier this week after their discussion over tonight’s game got out of hand. To be fair, police say the Kentucky fan did flip off the Louisville fan. “It all started with the racial lines in Kentucky,” Louisville coach Rick Pitino said of the rivalry. “Now (it’s) no longer racially motivated. It’s just pure hatred.” It’s a given that Louisville and Kentucky would be rivals, their campuses a mere 70 miles apart in a state where basketball is king. To hear fans of both schools tell it, however, the programs might as well be on different planets. Kentucky is a college basketball blue blood, its seven national titles second only to UCLA, while Louisville has a nice little tradition going with two national titles. Kentucky is the bigger school, and its campus is set in bucolic hill country. Louisville sprawls over several city blocks, smoke from a soy processing plant billowing overhead and railroad tracks cutting through the center of campus. (If the Louisville lacrosse coach never sees a train again after she retires, it’ll be too soon.) Big Blue counts most of the state among its fan base, too, while Louisville isn’t necessarily even No. 1 in its own city. In fact, about the only thing the two schools have in common is Pitino, who led the Wildcats to one national title and two other Final Four appearances in eight years at Kentucky. Forget that engendering any warm-and-fuzzy goodwill with the Kentucky folks, however. Now that Pitino isn’t theirs, Kentucky fans hate him, too.

IN PHOTO AT LEFT, LOUISVILLE COACH — AND FORMER KENTUCKY COACH — RICK PITINO paces the court Friday at the New Orleans Superdome, where today he’ll face current UK coach John Calipari, right photo, with forward Michael KiddGilchrist.


Calipari and Pitino can’t resist the fray. Both coaches were reminded Friday about a comment Calipari made back in October about Kentucky’s uniqueness, which sure sounded like it was a slap at Louisville. “There’s no other state, none, that’s as connected to their basketball program as this one,” Calipari said then. “Because those other states have other programs.” Asked about that exact comment Friday, Calipari said, “I didn’t say that,” explaining that what he meant was Kentucky fans are scattered across every inch of the state while Cardinals fans are more concentrated in and around Louisville. “We sleep with the enemy in Louisville,” Pitino acknowledged. “We have many Louisville men and women that marry into Kentucky families. It’s very difficult to swallow, to see that happen.” Pitino seemed to try to give Calipari the benefit of the doubt, saying the third-year Kentucky coach hasn’t been around long enough to really appreciate the depth of the rivalry. But Peyton Siva, Louisville’s guard by way of Seattle, has been around the same amount of time recalled former Kentucky as Calipari, and he sure guard John Wall. seems to get it. Fan is short for fanatic, “For outsiders, I’d just after all. say wear white,” he said, There are some fans “so you can blend in.” who can view the rivalry with detachment, however. Or at least reason. Coke and his wife, Denise, sat behind Stahl, his brother Jim Joe, and their brother-in-law, Jamie Solomon, at open practice Friday, and security didn’t need to run interference. When the Cardinals took the floor, one of those standing to applaud was Ken Berkins, proudly wearing his Kentucky blue after flying all the way from the Middle East to see his beloved Wildcats in the Final Four. “My family would probably hang me if they saw me clapping for Louisville,” Berkins admitted. “But we’re just unbelievably excited to have two teams from Kentucky in the Final Four.” Solomon even said he’d root for Louisville if the Cardinals beat Kentucky tonight. “But I’m a transplant,” Solomon quickly added, as Pat Stahl shook his head in disgust. Try as they do to rise above the nitpicking, even

Center? But the bad blood has been simmering for generations. Kentucky never scheduled in-state schools under coach Adolph Rupp, and former assistant Joe B. Hall dutifully followed suit when he took over as coach. Gov. John Y. Brown stepped in following their matchup in the 1983 NCAA Mideast Regional finals, now known around the state as The Dream Game, and told the schools to start playing each other. Kentucky currently holds bragging rights in the annual in-state rumble, winning 18 of the 29 games, including a 69-62 victory at Rupp Arena on Dec. 31. “All you hear from the fans is, ‘Don’t lose to the Cardinals. Whatever happens, Big Blue Nation better not lose to Louisville,’”

Denver museum tells story of Titanic survivor Molly Brown By Colleen Slevin Associated Press

DENVER — Thousands of miles from the ocean, a museum tells the story of a woman made famous by the Titanic. No, her name was not Rose, and a movie about her life, “The Unsinkable Molly Brown,” starring Debbie Reynolds as a plucky lifeboat survivor, was a hit decades before Kate Winslet’s doomed romance in “Titanic.” Molly Brown was a real person, but the movie created a myth that the museum, located in Brown’s Denver home, attempts to dispel. Born in 1867 to Irish immigrants in Hannibal, Mo., Brown struck it rich, with her husband, from a Colorado gold mine, years before she boarded the Titanic, and in later years, she fought for women’s suffrage and labor rights. No one called her Molly during her lifetime — her name was Margaret — and biographer Kristen Iversen, author of “Molly Brown: Unraveling the Myth,” writes that there’s no proof she ever referred to herself as “unsinkable.” The nickname seems to have originated with a Denver gossip columnist who may have been mad that Brown gave her account of the Titanic disaster to a newspaper in Newport, R.I., where she also spent time. Iversen says two books written in the 1930s created the image of Brown as a gun-packing, wisecracking former saloon girl, accounts that became the basis of the Broadway play and later the 1964 musical starring Reynolds. Molly Brown also appears in James Cameron’s “Titanic,” portrayed by Kathy Bates. Brown eventually separated from her husband and, unlike on screen, they never reunited. That gave her the freedom to indulge in travel, and in 1912, she headed to Egypt with John Jacob Astor and his wife. She cut the trip short to

TOPEKA — The Kansas Legislature imploded Friday before adjourning for its annual break, leaving a long list of politically explosive issues to be dealt with when the wrap-up session starts April 25. An apparent agreement between the House and Senate on the supplemental budget unraveled at the last minute in an argument over school funding. Without the appropriations bill that covered numerous items, the Kansas Supreme Court may have to close courts and furlough employees without pay, officials said. State Supreme Court Justice Lawton Nuss sent a letter to legislators last month that warned if the judicial sys- Nuss tem didn’t get a needed $1.4 million supplemental appropriation, it would have to close courts for up to five days, furloughing 1,500 employees and 250 judges. “If the legislative process is not completed by March 31, then the Supreme Court will be obligated to immediately start the process of closing courts and sending employees home without pay, i.e. furloughs,” Nuss said, adding that the first furlough could occur in early April. But House Speaker Mike O’Neal, R-Hutchinson, denied that would happen. He said the court system had other funds that could be used. Some legislators also said that the state parks system, which is struggling financially, may be affected by the failure to pass the budget.

Budget meltdown The meltdown occurred when House budget negotiators refused to sign a HouseSenate budget agreement. Both the House and Senate agreed to allocate $24.6 million to public schools in the current year to cover unexpected costs.

cer’s involvement undermined the confidence in the outcome of the case,” according to the statement. However, Branson said his office was not able to review every case that could involve the two officers because his office’s current computer system allows for searches only back to October 2005. Sarna and Monroe were employed with the department beginning in 1991. Monroe was promoted to sergeant in 2004, and Sarna was promoted to sergeant in 2008 after serving as a school resource officer for several years. When he became a sergeant, Sarna was a patrol supervisor until he became the department’s public affairs sergeant and media spokesman in 2010. Monroe worked as a patrol supervisor from 2004 to 2009 and later moved to the department’s office of professional accountability. In 2011 he was a sergeant and supervisor in the investigations division. “If there is an attorney that has reason to believe they may have a case that is affected by this situation, they should contact the district attorney directly so he can pull that file and make a review,” the district attorney’s office statement states.


the broader KU athletictickets-for-cash scandal. The speeding tickets were dismissed in 2000, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2008 and 2009. The officer who resigned in February, now identified as Sarna, had a long-term friendship dating to the late 1990s or early 2000s with the KU Athletics employee and received “free, discounted or otherwise special access to certain athletic events over several years,” and at some point the athletics employee asked for help dismissing speeding tickets he received or was about to receive. The second officer — Monroe, who was suspended and was no longer employed with the city as of last week — was asked two or three times by Sarna for assistance in fixing a ticket and may have benefited from KU tickets obtained by Sarna. The other tickets were fixed by asking officers who issued or were about to issue a ticket to void it or not issue it, but those officers did not “knowingly” receive anything in return. No other officers have been suspended. FBI agents, at the city’s request, investigated the case and decided against filing federal charges of bribery or other offenses. In the last month, Branson reviewed past cases because prosecutors are required to turn over to defendants possible exculpatory evidence involving witnesses. In a statement, Branson said his office used its computerized records system to identify cases in which the two officers were listed as witnesses. Prosecutors, who discovered the 18 cases, reviewed:

Each officer’s role in the cases.

Whether the cases resulted in a plea or trial.

Whether each officer’s contribution to the investigation was material.

Whether there was “a reasonable probability that had the officer been unavailable for trial the result of the proceeding would have been different.” “There were no cases identified where the offi-




“People get so stressed that they have to leave the room. They want KU to win. They are afraid they’re going to lose. They don’t want to see the end,” Yockey said. “If it’s a close game, people get really emotional and really excited and the adrenaline flows and the alcohol flows. The snacks flow.” Yockey said he doesn’t want to be a killjoy, but he has seen the ill effects of March Madness firsthand. In 1988, he saw 14 dislocated shoulders after the championship win. His advice: moderation. “Cheer on the ’Hawks. The sun will come up Sunday morning if we lose, and if we win, we will look forward to Monday night,” he said. “Keep it in perspective and have fun. Obviously, the people in Manhattan don’t have to worry about this.”


Dr. Marciana Vequist, a psychologist at Bert Nash Community Mental Health Center, said so far the tournament has been good for Jayhawk fans’ mental health because the team is winning and people are happy, excited and proud. There’s a lot more socialization and community spirit. She also said fans aren’t crazy to have rituals and superstitions. In fact, she’s among them. Vequist watches with a group of friends. She said last year, they had to eat certain foods, including chocolate almonds and apricots, sit in the same positions and wear certain clothes. Well, that didn’t work. So this year, they’ve vowed to change it up. On Saturday, she might wear her a lucky black Tshirt that has “Kansas” on it in white lettering, or she might wear a new red Final Four shirt. She’s not sure. “Most of us are having a lot of fun with it, but if you really feel that you are having some kind of im-


No criminal charges In his statement Friday, Branson said prosecutors reviewed the FBI and department’s internal affairs report, which revealed the KU tickets were provided to the officers and that the same officers fixed certain traffic tickets. “However, the timing and circumstances surrounding the receipt of or access to those basketball tickets could not be directly linked to specific requests for fixing traffic tickets,” which would be required in a bribery conviction, Branson said. That meant there was insufficient evidence to establish probable cause that a crime was committed “based upon the nexus between the receipt of basketball tickets and any request for traffic tickets to be fixed,” Branson said.

Shelley Hickman Clark, an associate clinical specialist with Douglas County Legal Aid who defended Gilmore in the case, argued the ordinance about blocking a sidewalk had been “shoehorned” into “what would be a legitimate regulation” against placing moving vans or large items in the way to prohibit someone’s path. “People in this city have a constitutional right of association of liberty, and this ordinance unduly impinges upon that right,” she said. Hafoka said “blocking the passage of others is not a constitutionally protected right.” “This ordinance is not criminalizing conduct of being on a public right of way,” she said. “But it’s rather criminalizing blocking or obstructing traffic on the public right of way.” District Judge Paula Martin stopped the arguments once to ask a question about whether Lawrence police officers receive training on how to enforce the ordinance. Hafoka said officers are trained on every city ordinance. The judge said she would take the arguments under advisement and rule on the case later. McGrath’s ruling has upheld portions of the ordinance that prohibit people from leaving objects in a street or sidewalk and from intentionally obstructing traffic.

pact on the team by something you are doing or not doing, you might want to look at that,” she said. She said March Madness can be much like the holidays. If people suffer anxiety from socialization or are recovering from alcoholism, this time of year might not be so fun. For others, the time can be euphoric. And if the team loses this weekend, she said that shouldn’t lead to depression or other mental illness unless there were already underlying symptoms.


KU fan Dr. Steven Bruner, a family practice physician, said there will be a letdown — win or lose. It may take him a week to recover. “If we lose to Ohio State or Kentucky, everybody will regret it but nobody will be disappointed. I think nobody expected us to get this far,” he said. “If we win, it’s like the day after Christmas. Christmas was great, but man it’s going to be a long time before Christmas again.” Bruner, who has been a Jayhawk fan since 1976, said he doesn’t consider March Madness unhealthy unless there’s too much drinking and someone ends up getting hurt. He could see where fans — including him — might eat too many unhealthy foods or not get enough sleep due to watching the late games. “Fortunately, it’s only a couple nights of the year — or, OK, six,” he said, laughing.


If Jayhawk fans do suffer a fall or have chest pains during a game, they tend to avoid the hospital like the plague. Dr. David Rios, a Lawrence cardiologist, said, “It’s funny nobody comes into the hospital during games, but there’s a bit of a rush afterward. They will tolerate their chest pains until the game is over, and then they will come in.” The other problem is that his hospitalized pa-

L AWRENCE J OURNAL -W ORLD tients want to go home whether they are ready or not. If they have to stay in the hospital, they have to watch the game — no tests or nurses are to interfere. “Let me tell you, these Jayhawk fans are something else,” Rios said, laughing. When Rios moved to Kansas in 1999, he was hellbent on not being a KU fan. He had lived in New York and was sick of hearing about the Jayhawks. “I thought when I get to Kansas, there is no way,” he said. “They are always the favorite and they go on and on about the tradition. So, when you are not a fan — it’s like North Carolina and Duke — you just don’t want to hear it.” Then, his son, Chris, attended several KU basketball camps, and his Jayhawk spirit rubbed off. “Before I knew it, I had drank the Kool-Aid and now I probably own more Jayhawk material than anybody, and I have no affiliation whatsoever. I have never gone to school here. But I own more Jayhawk stuff than most people,” he said, laughing. Rios said he earned his bachelor’s degree from Harvard University and was thrilled that his alma mater made the NCAA tournament this year for the first time since 1946. “On my bracket, they were playing KU in the Final Four,” he said. “Needless to say, it didn’t happen but I had to go with my heart.” Rios said he didn’t know of anyone who had suffered an actual heart attack during a game, but he’s sure there’s been some chest pains. “I try to watch it by myself. I can’t watch it with too many people. I need to be able to yell at the TV and yell at the refs, and I turn the TV off when I think I’m causing bad luck by watching,” he said. “I didn’t use to be a fan, and now I’m completely consumed. I absolutely drank the Kool-Aid.” — Health reporter Karrey Britt can be reached at 832-7190. Read her health blog at, and follow her at 609 N.H. (offices) • 645 N.H.

BRIEFLY Simien’s free throw finals postponed Finals of the second Wayne Simien Free Throw Challenge have been postponed from Sunday to next Saturday. The event, which the public is invited to observe, starts at 2 p.m. April 7 at Allen Fieldhouse. Preliminaries will be today at various gyms and locations throughout Lawrence. Organizers said that Kansas University officials asked them to postpone Sunday’s event because the fieldhouse might be in use if the men’s basketball team were to lose its NCAA Tournament game tonight against Ohio State University. The free throw event is a benefit for Family Promise of Lawrence and Called to Greatness sports ministry, two local nonprofits. Family Promise of Lawrence is an interfaith hospitality network committed to housing homeless families, and Called to Greatness is a multi-sports ministry program that allows underprivileged children a chance to play.


Proposed income tax cuts put off ————

Judge sides with ACLU on abortion insurance

Preschool students can enroll Monday Enrollment for Kennedy School’s pre-kindergarten and peer model programs begins Monday. To enroll in preschool, children must be 4 years old by Aug. 31 and live within the Lawrence school district. Families who are eligible for free lunch and have children not already attending another preschool program qualify for the preschool program. Families can also qualify to send their children there if they are eligible for reduced-price lunches and do not have children already attending another preschool program, and meet one of the following criteria: custodial parent is unmarried, family is being referred by SRS, child was born to a teen parent, the parent is lacking a high school diploma or GED, child qualifies for migrant status, or English is the child’s second language. The preschool runs 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. On Wednesdays, it goes from 8 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. For families who meet the qualifications, there is no fee. The peer model program provides positive interaction, demonstrates play skills and models appropriate language and behavior for children with special needs in a typical classroom setting. It is open to children who are 3 years old by Aug. 31. The program costs $150 a month and offers morning and afternoon halfday sessions four days a week.

making it to the car, Benjamin and Sommer delivered Joy. “The scariest moment was after we caught her but before she let out her first little wail,” he said. “It was probably all of two seconds, but after that it was just an amazing experience.” Elizabeth named her Joy after what she hopes she’ll be to all the lives she touches.

WICHITA — The American Civil Liberties Union has won a legal round in its effort to overturn a Kansas law that restricts insurance coverage for abortions. U.S. District Judge Julie Robinson sided with the organization by rejecting the state’s request to dismiss a key challenge of the law based on equal protection. The ruling, handed down Thursday, allows the ACLU to continue pursuing COURTS its argument that the law illegally singles out women. The Kansas law prohibits insurance companies from offering abortion coverage as part of general health plans, except when a woman’s life is at risk. Patients who want abortion coverage must buy supplemental policies, known as riders, that cover only abortion. The ACLU contends that the law discriminates against women, since men can buy full comprehensive coverage for all their health needs but women need to buy a separate policy to add abortion coverage. The organization contends the purpose of the law is to inhibit women from getting abortions. That “argument gets closer

BENJAMIN, JAMES AND ELIZABETH KEIL and Sommer Amundsen stand in the parking lot at Stouffer Place apartments where Joy Keil was unexpectedly born.

While parents debate, baby doesn’t hesitate Girl born in parking lot with no complications By Alex Garrison

Joy came into the world suddenly. There was a bit of an argument: go back into the house or get to the car and, with any luck, make it to Topeka? Mom wanted the house. Dad wanted Topeka. In the end, little Joy made the call. Elizabeth Keil gave birth to a 9-pound, 2-ounce girl at about 4:45 a.m. Thursday. That’s the time she guessed for the records because, in her words, parking lots don’t have clocks. Joy, you see, came into the world not in a Topeka birthing center or in the Keils’ on-campus home at Stouffer Place

apartments, but in the parking lot outside. Their friend Sommer Amundsen was there, on call to help watch their 20-monthold son, James. But nobody expected the new baby’s joyous, serendipitous, speedy arrival. “Elizabeth said ‘catch her’ so we caught her!” Amundsen said. “We didn’t have an option.” But there had been some debate. After about an hour of contractions, Elizabeth and her husband, Benjamin Keil, were initially determined to make it to the birthing center where, after 12 full hours of labor, James was born. But Elizabeth says she knew she wouldn’t make it. Before even


Koch Industries and Koch brothers are assets to state By Dolph C. Simons Jr.

What is it, or why is it, that the name Koch, particularly here in Lawrence and Kansas, seems to trigger such angry, passionate and negative responses from a certain segment of the community, particularly among some at Kansas University? Charles and David Koch operate Koch Industries, the second-largest privately owned company in the United States. They have two brothers, Fred and Bill, and, in the 1980s and ’90s, the four brothers were engaged in a long, bitter and costly legal fight to determine who would take control of the company that had been founded and nurtured by their father, Fred Koch. Eventually, Charles and David assumed control of the giant firm. Fred now lives elsewhere and concentrates on art collecting and philanthropy; Bill also lives elsewhere and focuses on other businesses, sailing and being a collector. Since Charles and David assumed leadership of the Wichita-based company, Koch has enjoyed phenomenal growth throughout the United States

and in at least 60 other countries. Today, the company employs approximately 67,000 people. In Kansas, Koch has close to 3,000 employees, pays millions in taxes and supports a wide variety of charities. The answer to the question at the beginning of this column is that the Kochs are conservatives, some would say “ultra conservatives.” They support organizations such as the Cato Institute, Citizens for a Sound Economy, Americans for Prosperity and Freedom Works. Their critics have been quick to try to fault them for supposedly funneling money to the tea party movement. Some say the brothers have given more than $100 million to these conservative organizations. Charles and David Koch have been the lightning rods for liberal, anti-conservative forces in this country, and it is that likely liberal-leaning faculty members and administrators at KU, as well as at many other universities, have been critical of the Kochs in order to keep peace with their staffs. The sad, phony or hard-tounderstand part of this situation

is that the two Koch brothers attribute the success of their family-owned business to the guiding principles espoused by their market-based management philosophy. These principles are: integrity, confidence, value creation,

COMMENTARY principled entrepreneurship, customer focus, knowledge, change, humility, respect and fulfillment. They are pretty good principles to live by and to use when owning and operating a business — also pretty good principles for teachers and school administrators to keep in mind. Some say it is wrong for a company such as Koch to spend so much money supporting conservative causes, but why should they be criticized or silenced when so many other groups such as organized labor, ultraliberal environmentalists, teachers unions, the American Medical Association, the Chamber of Commerce, Obama forces, George Soros and others are spending millions upon millions supporting their own causes, usu-

ally diametrically counter to the conservative efforts of the Kochs? It’s likely that in a company as large as Koch Industries, there have been causes in which there have been violations of some kind, even fines, but Koch runs a clean operation and offers good jobs. In fact, one of their ranch operations, Beaverhead in Montana, has received numerous environmental awards. Yes, the company owns and operates giant refineries, but they operate safely and with a goal of 100 percent compliance with emission and environmental standards. In Kansas, some of the Koch companies include Flint Hills Resources LLC, Koch Pipeline Company, Invista B.V., Georgia-Pacific Gypsum LLC, Koch Supply and Trading LP, Koch Glitsch LP, Koch Nitrogen Co. LLC, Koch Carbon LLC and the Matador Cattle Company. Koch financial contributions to Kansas programs are generous, covering many interests throughout the state and benefiting thousands of individuals. Since 2000, David Koch and the David Koch Charitable Foundation have pledged or contrib-

uted more than $750 million to further cancer research, enhance medical centers, support educational institutions, sustain arts and cultural institutions and conduct public safety studies. These contributions have gone to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, Johns Hopkins University, the Lincoln Center in New York, the Smithsonian and numerous other medical and educational programs. Charles and David Koch have championed limited government, economic freedom and personal liberty and they have challenged excessive government spending. Their financial giving efforts — political and charitable, both personal and through their company and foundations — all have been lawful. This being the case, it would seem KU officials, as well as other state officials, should be trying to work with Koch Industries, Charles and David Koch and their foundations on ways to benefit the university and the state. They should be trying to embrace the Kochs rather than acting as if they were pariahs. The Kochs are a tremendous asset for the state!

But he also told the ACLU Read more responses and add





that it could try again, noting his decision wasn’t a final ruling on the merits of the group’s claims. Women seeking an abortion in Kansas need to buy the insurance rider or pay for the procedure out-ofpocket if their insurance policies are new or were renewed after the law took effect last year on July 1. The law was among several major anti-abortion initiatives approved by Kansas legislators and signed into law last year by Republican Gov. Sam Brownback, who called on lawmakers to create “a culture of life” after he took office in January 2011. Supporters of the insurance restrictions contended that people who oppose abortion shouldn’t be forced to pay for such coverage in a general health plan. In her ruling, Robinson said the U.S. Supreme Court had already made clear that the undue burden standard is the appropriate means of reconciling the state’s interest in potential human life with the woman’s “constitutionally protected liberty” to have an abortion. However, she noted that the high court has not yet clarified how to consider an abortionrelated challenge under an equal protection theory, one of the key claims in the ACLU’s lawsuit.

In addition to reductions in income taxes, the Senate has passed a bill that would provide $180 million over four years aimed at buying down local property taxes. In an indication of the improving economy, the state took in 10.3 percent, or $40.1 million, more revenue in March than earlier projected. Corporate income tax receipts doubled to $21 million over expectations, while personal income taxes came in $14.6 million more than estimates. Sales taxes also were up, and the state is running $72.2 million ahead of earlier projections.

Man arrested for soliciting child Douglas County prosecutors have filed solicitation and two child exploitation charges against a 52-yearold Lawrence man who was arrested Wednesday night. “In the course of the investigation some items were seized from the defendant,” legal intern Mitchell Peterson said in court Friday. “It’s the state’s belief that additional charges will be brought against this defendant.” Court records show the man faces one count of electronic solicitation of a child under age 14 and two counts of possession of any visual depiction or images of a child under 18 engaging in sexually explicit conduct. Prosecutors alleged the incidents occurred between April 1, 2011, and Aug. 31, 2011. The arrest was made after police interviewed the man at the Investigations and Training Center, 4820 Bob Billings Parkway. Lawrence police have not released additional information about the case. The man told the judge Friday he was a midnight security guard for a De Soto company and asked for a bond that would allow him to attend work, but protem Judge James George set bond at $100,000 and ordered the man to have no contact with any children under 18 except his son. The man’s next hearing is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. Tuesday in front of District Judge Peggy Kittel. The Journal-World generally does not identify sex crime suspects unless they are convicted.

The House wanted to take the money from the transportation department, while the Senate and Gov. Sam Brownback proposed using general state revenues. Both the House and Senate negotiators agreed to fund schools but to defer a decision on the method of funding until the wrapup session. But House Appropriations Chairman Marc Rhoades, R-Newton, said that would have put the House at a disadvantage because if no agreement could be reached, the funding method would have defaulted to Brownback’s LEGISLATURE p o s i t i o n , which was the same as the Senate’s. Senators appeared incredulous, saying there were many items in the House-Senate budget report that could fall to the advantage of either chamber. “A deal was struck,” said state Sen. John Vratil, R-Leawood. “I can’t believe it.”

Redistricting, taxes and arts Moments later, Vratil led the charge in the Senate to kill a House-approved congressional redistricting bill that would have split Topeka into two districts. That added heat to the already sizzling battle over redrawing boundaries for congressional and legislative districts that must be done every 10 years to accommodate population changes. In addition, House and Senate tax negotiators decided to defer their work until the wrap-up session, too. Brownback has been pushing hard to eliminate income taxes for 191,000 partnerships, sole proprietorships and other businesses, and lower individual income tax rates. But Senate Republican leaders and Democrats have urged a more cautious approach and focused more on proposals aimed at lowering Kansans’ property taxes. The impasse over the budget also may have jeopardized a move to reinstate state funding for the arts. Last year, Brownback vetoed $689,000 in funding for the Kansas Arts Commission, saying that public tax dollars shouldn’t go to the arts. The veto made Kansas the first state to stop state funding of the arts. Kansas also lost $1.3 million in federal and regional matching funds. Facing a public outcry over his veto, at the start of the 2012 legislative session Brownback proposed merging the un-funded Kansas Arts Commission and the Kansas Film Commission into a new entity called the Creative Industries Commission and placing that under the Kansas Department of Commerce. In addition, Brownback proposed providing $200,000 from the Economic Development Initiatives Fund, which is derived from gaming revenues. The House-Senate budget conference committee proposed increasing that amount by $500,000 from the EDIF, bringing the total to $700,000. But because the budget has been deferred, that agreement may be up in the air. House Minority Leader Paul Davis, D-Lawrence, blamed Republicans for the failures of the session. “We have a Republican governor and significant Republican majorities in both the House and Senate. It is inexcusable that we have yet to pass a budget after 73 days in session, especially while we sit on a $500 million state surplus,” he said. “We’re heading back to our constituents after 12 weeks in the Capitol with absolutely nothing to show for it.” — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.




Former cancer patient’s wish comes true at LMH By Karrey Britt

More than 200 people packed Lawrence Memorial Hospital’s main lobby late Friday afternoon to pay tribute to former breast cancer patient Jamie Barkes Pursley. There were laughs and many tears. It was a bittersweet occasion. One year ago, on March 29, 2011, Jamie Barkes Pursley died at age 35 after a five-year battle. Just weeks before she died, she looked her closest friends in the eyes and told them she wanted to renovate the infusion rooms at LMH’s Oncology Center, where she had spent many hours receiving treatment. She wanted them to look and feel less like a hospital and more like a place of refuge. In August, her friends Aimee Jackson and Kelli Alldredge started an organization called “Jamie’s Wish,” where they put together a plan to raise money for the renovation project, setting a fundraising goal of $100,000. They reached their goal in November and even sur-

passed it, raising $140,000 with the help of more than 300 donors, big and small. On Friday, Jamie’s wish came true. There was a dedication program, ribbon-cutting ceremony and open house at the refurbished center. “It has been an unbelievable journey,” Jackson said. “I think Jamie would just be so pleased with the people who are here in support of her wish.” Among those in attendance were Jamie’s husband, Aaron, and their 6-year-old daughter, Kayden, and Jamie’s parents, Dave and Kathy Barkes, of Tecumseh. Those who knew her said

she never complained about the cancer. “I remember when she was first diagnosed,” her mother said, teary-eyed. “I don’t remember exactly what I said but something like, ‘I wish it wasn’t you,’ and her reply was, ‘Why not me?’ She said she was OK with it.” Jamie’s oncologist Dr. Sherri Soule was among nine people who spoke during the program. She said it didn’t take more than five minutes for her to realize just how special Jamie was. “I say this often about all of my patients, but I truly felt lucky to be caring for Jamie,” she said. “At her visits here, Jamie’s thoughts were almost always about

someone else. She didn’t dwell on self-pity.” Soule said she immediately clicked with Jamie because they were close in age and had daughters who were about the same age. They talked about cancer some, but mostly their conversations were about school, travel, iPads, kids and shopping. “Everyone who knew Jamie knows the kind of conversation I am talking about,” Soule said, and the crowd laughed. Soule said Jaime will be touching the lives of many others for years to come. The Oncology Center serves about 600 new patients each year and administers about 18,000 treatments. “Jamie’s wish was to take an experience that is often anything but pleasant and make it better. With the help of her friends, she has done that. The bad times can be really hard here, but the good times keep all of us going,” Soule said. “This afternoon is one of the good times.” — Health reporter Karrey Britt can be reached at 832-7190.

Man gets probation in choking case A Douglas County judge Friday ordered a 19-year-old Perry man to serve two years on probation and comply with recommendations from a mental health evaluation for choking his former girlfriend dozens of times last year. Trevor J. Benedict had pleaded no contest in February to two counts of misdemeanor child endangerment after prosecutors reduced two original counts of felony aggravated child endangerment. “I never wanted to harm anyone,” Benedict said in court. The 17-year-old girl testified at a February preliminary hearing she consented to having Benedict choke her during the several months they dated beginning in December 2010 and that she lost consciousness during one of the incidents at her Douglas County residence. Benedict, who was a Kansas University student at the time of his arrest last August, is prohibited from having any contact with the girl and also must submit to GPS monitoring at least through the summer. He faces two years in jail if he’s found to violate conditions of his probation.

Going downtown? Have a plan By George Diepenbrock

In your strategic planning for a parking space downtown in the event of a major celebration after Kansas University’s Final Four game Saturday, you can eliminate the top level of the New Hampshire Street parking garage. The city has posted signs saying toady that level — which is the 24hour free-parking section of the garage — will be closed so city vehicles can be parked there in case they will be needed if thousands of people flood downtown. “It has been posted in advance to let people know about the plan and to make alternate arrangements,” said Sgt. Trent McKinley, a Lawrence police spokesman. KU’s game in New Orleans against Ohio State is scheduled to tip off at 7:49 p.m. after the KentuckyLouisville game. McKinley said the other levels of the New Hampshire Street garage and the Riverfront Garage north of Seventh and Rhode Island streets likely would be best bets for parking before the game — or at least for anyone lucky enough to get a spot there. Otherwise, he advised against parking in core areas along or close to Massachusetts Street. City officials are preparing in case of a major celebration and urging people to be safe. An estimated 40,000 people celebrated downtown in 2008 after KU defeated Memphis in the national championship game. If KU defeats Ohio State today, the city plans

to close Massachusetts Street from Sixth Street south to 13th Street, and police said this likely means anyone who parks on Massachusetts Street won’t be able to get out until the streets clear hours later. Several hundred officers from Lawrence and area departments will be deployed downtown. McKinley said that if KU loses, the streets likely won’t close because many people probably would head home, but officers would still be deployed to maintain peace. “We’re down there to make sure that everybody stays safe. Most of the decisions we’ve made have surrounded the safety aspects of things,” McKinley said. “We want people to come down and have fun, but any kind of violence is going to be addressed, and any kind of property damage is going to be addressed.” The city and police department has also offered these safety tips in case of a major celebration:

Stay in groups and notify family members of your plans.

Do not get into vehicles with individuals you do not know.

Cans and bottles will not be allowed downtown.

Stay off rooftops.

Do not bring dogs downtown into crowds because it could pose a safety risk and use caution if you have small children with you.

Celebrate responsibly and be aware of your surroundings. — Reporter George Diepenbrock can be reached at 832-7144. Follow him at

Obama ‘flexibility’ sends chilling message “On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this can be solved, but it’s important for him (Putin) to give me space. ... This is my last election. After my election, I have more flexibility.” — Barack Obama to Dmitry Medvedev, open mic, March 26 WASHINGTON — You don’t often hear an American president secretly (he thinks) assuring foreign leaders that concessions are coming their way, but they must wait because he’s seeking re-election and he dare not tell his own people. Not at all, spun a White House aide in major gaffe-control mode. The president was merely explaining that arms control is too complicated to be dealt with in a year in which both Russia and the U.S. hold presidential elections. Rubbish. First of all, to speak of Russian elections in the same breath as ours is a travesty. Theirs was a rigged, predetermined farce. Putin ruled before. Putin rules after. Obama spoke of the difficulties of the Russian presidential “transition.” What transition? It’s a joke. It had no effect on Putin’s ability to negotiate anything. As for the U.S. election, the problem is not that the issue is too complicated but that if people knew Obama’s intentions of “flexibly” caving on missile defenses, they might think twice about giving him a second term. After all, what is Obama doing

Charles Krauthammer

The fewer nukes you have for deterrence, the more you need nuclear defenses.” negotiating on missile defense in the first place? We have no obligation to do so. The ABM Treaty, a relic of the Cold War, died in 2002. We have an unmatched technological lead in this area. It’s a priceless strategic advantage that for three decades Russia has been trying to get us to yield. Why give any of it away? In order to placate Putin, Obama had already in 2009 abruptly canceled the missile-defense system the Poles and Czechs had agreed to host in defiance of Russian threats. Why give away more? It’s unfathomable. In trying to clean up the gaffe, Obama emphasized how intent he is to “reduce nuclear stockpiles” and “reduce reliance on nuclear weapons.” In which case, he should want to augment missile defenses, not weaken, disman-

tle or bargain them away. The fewer nukes you have for deterrence, the more you need nuclear defenses. If your professed goal is nuclear disarmament, as is Obama’s, eliminating defenses is completely illogical. Nonetheless, Obama is telling the Russians not to worry, that once past “my last election” and no longer subject to any electoral accountability, he’ll show “more flexibility” on missile defense. It’s yet another accommodation to advance his cherished Russia “reset” policy. Why? Hasn’t reset been failure enough? Let’s do the accounting. In addition to canceling the Polish/ Czech missile defense system, Obama gave the Russians accession to the World Trade Organization, a START treaty that they need and we don’t (their weapons are obsolete and deteriorating rapidly) and a scandalously blind eye to their violations of human rights and dismantling of democracy. Obama even gave Putin a congratulatory call for winning his phony election. In return? Russia consistently watered down or obstructed sanctions on Iran, completed Iran’s nuclear reactor at Bushehr, provides to this day Bashar al-Assad with huge arms shipments used to massacre his own people (while rebuilding the Soviet-era naval base in the Syrian port of Tartus), conducted a virulently anti-American presi-

dential campaign on behalf of Putin, pressured Eastern Europe and threatened Georgia. On which of “all these issues” — Syria, Iran, Eastern Europe, Georgia, human rights — is Obama ready to offer Putin yet more flexibility as soon as he gets past his last election? Where else will he show U.S. adversaries more flexibility? Yet more aid to North Korea? More weakening of tough Senate sanctions against Iran? Can you imagine the kind of pressure a re-elected Obama will put on Israel, the kind of anxiety he will induce from Georgia to the Persian Gulf, the nervousness among our most loyal East European friends who, having already once been left out on a limb by Obama, are now wondering what new flexibility Obama will show Putin — the man who famously proclaimed that the “greatest geopolitical catastrophe” of the 20th century was Russia’s loss of its Soviet empire. They don’t know. We don’t know. We didn’t even know this was coming — until the mic was left open. Only Putin was to know. “I will transmit this information to Vladimir,” Medvedev assured Obama. Added Medvedev: “I stand with you.” A nice endorsement from Putin’s puppet, enough to chill friends and allies, democrats and dissidents, all over the world. — Charles Krauthammer is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.

Missouri rivalry will be missed When Missouri announced that it was leaving the Big 12, I was shaken to the roots of my being. The idea was unthinkable. It felt as if some basic law of nature had been violated: Spring would no longer follow winter, chocolate ice cream would no longer taste good. It was a denial of geographic reality, as if the new map would show a blank space east of Kansas, with the legend, “There be dragons here.” You see, I grew up in Kansas City on the wrong side of State Line: the Missouri side, that is. The antagonistic entanglement of Kansas and Missouri was in my DNA. From the beginning, I sensed that something was the matter with Missouri, that it was somehow tainted, perhaps because it was on the wrong side in the Civil War. For as long as I can remember, I aspired to escape to Kansas, a place where I could start over, a pure, unspoiled and virtuous state. Trapped in Missouri, I lived a kind of double life and suffered a prolonged identity crisis. When I went to summer camp in Minnesota, I stood up in the mess hall and sang along with the Kansas campers, “For I’m a Jay-Jay-JayJay Jayhawk up at Lawrence on the Kaw.” Thirty-four years ago, when I managed at last to settle in Kansas, I felt reborn. My self-esteem soared. I walked with a spring in

my step and a bit of a swagger. Part of my transformation was due to the fact that I became a Jayhawk basketball fan. Rooting for a dependable winner made me feel like a winner too. Since a lively rivalry is an essential part of being a fan, my antipathy to Missouri made it natural for me to champion the crimson and blue. I felt as if I had chosen light over darkness, good as opposed to evil. It made me feel like a better human being. Missouri fans willingly embraced the role of bad guys. They eagerly crossed the line between wholesome support for their own team to pathological hatred for their Jayhawk rival. The Antlers proved to be world-class boors. The Missouri players often behaved like thugs. It

was a joyous thing to see them grind their teeth and writhe in agony when our side won. To lose an enemy that can make you fighting mad is as bad as losing a friend. “Got a bill that’s big enough to twist a tiger’s tale…” No longer will those words stir memories of triumph and revenge. The sordid pursuit of money has rendered them meaningless. Tiger tradition has been transformed into a commodity, the Tiger “brand.” A great rivalry with its roots in the free state-slave state border wars has been tossed in the ash can of history. Those who made this decision to jump ship have shown contempt for Missouri’s past, for the shared memories of Missourians, for Missouri fans. To paraphrase Sitting Bull, they sold their souls for a piece of bacon fat. It seemed like a natural fulfillment of Missouri’s flawed character. The only proper response is disgust. Even if Kansas goes on to win the national championship, I will always remember this as the year of the spectacular come-from-behind victory over Missouri in their final showdown. The Jayhawks have given us another year to celebrate, to be proud, to be thankful we are on the right side, that we are “us,” not “them.”

To the editor: I knew “Phog” Allen for many, many years and he told me three things I’ve never forgotten. 1. Raise the goal two feet. The ones who recruit the tallest wins! He said that even when Wilt was here. 2. He’d get the team all warmed up on the floor and then go to the dressing room for their last exciting words of wisdom. Then they’d return and they played the National Anthem and they lost their incentive! 3. Phog retired when he was 70. He was trained as an osteopath and he went back to work. One time, when he had me on my back, “greased up” and he was vibrating a tool, he told me an osteopath doesn’t have to break your bones any more than a good lawyer has to yell! You know, that makes sense. Bud Jennings, Lawrence

Gift of health To the editor: As we celebrate National Doctor’s Day, we would like to publicly thank the physicians of Douglas County who volunteer with Health Care Access Clinic day in and day out. These 100-plus doctors share their time and talents on our team providing medical care for the uninsured, low-income of our community. (See the full list in our Friday ad and on www. Those in need, numbering over 14,000 in our county, receive quality treatment for everything from colds and flu to diabetes and high blood pressure. Together, we give the uninsured a hand up to return to work and school, to go on to get better jobs, promotions and health insurance they can then use with these doctors in the private sector. This partnership, along with physician office staff, Lawrence Memorial Hospital, local pharmacies, pharmaceutical companies and other volunteers provided more than $4 million worth of health care last year. Thank you, on behalf of our patients, for giving the gift of health every day. Lori Winfrey and Patricia Neis, for the Health Care Access clinic staff

Man gets probation after Taser incident A judge Friday morning sentenced a 49-year-old Lawrence man to serve two years on probation for a disturbance last July that prompted officers to subdue him with a Taser. In February, Martin Dean Wales pleaded no contest to criminal threat and aggravated assault in front of District Judge Sally Pokorny. Cheryl Wright, a spokeswoman for the Douglas County District Attorney’s Office, said Wales would be required to follow recommendations from mental health, drug and alcohol evaluations. He faces a 19-month prison sentence if he’s found to violate terms of his probation. Wales was arrested July 6, 2011, after sheriff’s officers alleged he refused to comply with demands to leave a building in the 1700 block of East 1350 Road, just east of Michigan Street in Lawrence. Earlier that day, Wales was involved in a disturbance with a woman inside. She left the house and was treated for injuries at Lawrence Memorial Hospital.

Dear Annie: My wife and I have been married 42 years, and she plans to retire in a few months. I am unemployed, cannot find a job and consider myself retired already. I do the grocery shopping and have dinner on the table by the time my wife returns from work, except two days a week when we go out to eat. However, my wife won’t let me touch the laundry, the dishes, the hardwood floors, the bathrooms or the vacuuming. It’s hands off, her way or no way. I know I need some training. I certainly don’t want to use the wrong cleaners on a $5,000 floor. But my wife refuses to teach me and argues when I ask. Our friends often comment on how spotless our house is. I ask my wife all the time what she wants me to do, but she won’t say. Am I supposed to read her mind? I have even asked her to please leave me notes, and the answer is “no.”

Annie’s Mailbox

Marcy Sugar and Kathy Mitchell

So my wife has decided to resolve our arguments by sleeping by herself. I don’t feel this helps matters at all. Any suggestions? — Jim in Peoria Dear Jim: First, please know how refreshing it is to hear from a man who actually wants to do more housework. The problem, of course, is that your wife considers this her “territory,” and she is reluctant to give up control. She believes if you can do what she does, it makes her less valuable and necessary. There is no reason to fight over this. Do

Kids’ Choice turns 25 Will Smith hosts the 25th annual Kids’ Choice Awards (8 p.m., Nickelodeon). Over the years, Smith has also been the recipient of 10 Kids’ Choice Awards. Look for celebrities and random bystanders to get covered in the show’s trademark green slime. And expect plenty of promotions for this summer’s big movies, including Smith’s “Men in Black III.” There’s no word if Frank the Pug — the real star of the franchise — will show up in “III” or at the awards show. If he does, I’d like to see him attack Alvin and the Chipmunks, the stars of the most annoying kids’ movie franchise of all time. Award categories include Favorite Buttkicker. Talents vying for that title include Jessica Alba, Kelly Kelly, Taylor Lautner and the venerable Tom Cruise.

Six teams compete on the reality contest “Escape Routes” (7 p.m., NBC).

 A daily commute offers women a chance to bond in the 2003 documentary “Ferry Tales” (9 p.m., Documentary).

While Fox hasn’t exactly said “adios” to “Q’Viva! The Chosen” (10 p.m.), it has exiled the talent show from prime time. Cult choice A random encounter leads to lust and temptation in the acclaimed 1927 silent drama “Sunrise” (8 p.m., TCM), directed by F.W. Murnau.

what you can and ignore the rest. If she doesn’t like it, let her complain. We suspect she enjoys doing that. Dear Annie: I am a 60-year-old man, divorced for one year and living alone. I recently joined a dating website and corresponded with a number of women. Then, out of the blue, I got an email from a 24-year-old Russian girl who happens to have a visa to travel to the United States. I responded to her, and now, after 10 days, I have received numerous long letters and many risque pictures. She is a beauty. I so much wanted to believe she is real, even though every ounce of brain matter told me this is a scam. Today, I received a letter, and as I suspected, she needs money because of an unexpected mishap. She wrote, “Only $5,000 is needed and I will be in your arms in a few days.” I will not be writing her


For Saturday, March 31: You have get-up-and-go. Remember, you come first, because if you do not take good care of yourself, you will have nothing to offer. If you are single, you could meet someone who is always unhappy. If you are attached, your partner might be withdrawn and somewhat aloof. Show your caring manner anyway. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult Aries (March 21-April 19)  Make plans around friends and family. You want to stay close to home, yet visit with loved ones as well. Tonight: A special person wants his or her time with you, too. Taurus (April 20-May 20)  Return calls and respond to a special invitation, whether it is for today or not. Don’t let others’ attitudes color your day. Choose your mood and your company. Tonight: You do not have to go far. Gemini (May 21-June 20)  Be aware of the expenses you might be adding to your budget. A discussion will help put someone at ease. Tonight: Time to treat someone. Cancer (June 21-July 22)  Share some of your ideas with others; the feedback could be quite surprising. You will learn a lot about those you hang out with. Be spontaneous. Tonight: You call the shots. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)  Know when to pull back. You have a shining personality, but often your rays prevent other personalities from emerging. Tonight: Don’t push. In fact, vanish while you can.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)  No hemming and hawing allowed. You might want to take a stronger role in handling a new purchase and your finances. Tonight: You are the party! Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  Curb negativity, and you’ll be able to enjoy yourself. See where the negativity is coming from and whether you can correct those thoughts. Tonight: To the wee hours. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  Keep reaching out for others you do not often speak to. Make plans that allow for at least a mini-escape, be it a movie, drive or other activity. Tonight: Share this adventure. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)  A special relationship creates a stronger bond between the two of you. The level of caring is so intense that someone around you could feel as if he or she is isolated. Tonight: Add a touch of spice. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)  You have little tolerance for anything but agreement. Someone also could make a request that you feel you have no choice but to respond to. Tonight: Among friends. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  Go off and do what you have wanted to do. Go to the gym, take a walk and/or finish up your taxes. Once you clear these tasks, you will be up for some socializing. Tonight: Be with a favorite person. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)  Think in terms of gains and greater happiness. You need to let go of stressful situations, and open up to a new sense of possibilities. Tonight: Let your hair down. — The astrological forecast should be read for entertainment only.

At 35 pounds, my name may seem funny. But it’s no joke: I’m a little, lovable guy that gets along with everyone (even other dogs) and will make you one fine pet. A unique mix of Australian Cattle Dog and Corgi, I’m sporting a red and cream medium length coat. And with 10 years of experience, I’m mature, wise, and looking for a place to spend my senior years. Try a piece of Beefcake today! I’m serious.

Who put “extra large” in my online profile, huh? Geez! I’ll show you XL: as in eXtra Love heading your way. About 9 years old, I’ve got beautiful green eyes and a short coat of brown with black stripes. I’m laid back; I’ll even roll over for you to scratch my big belly. So yes I’m plus size: there’s just more of me to love and I’m the biggest sweetheart you’ll ever meet.

A true romantic, my sweet, brown eyes will melt your heart. I’m just 8 years “young” and my best days are ahead of me. I’m noticeably deaf, but I can see you and touch you, and love you just right.

GARFIELD A handsome orange tabby, it’s easy to confuse me with my more popular cartoon namesake. But I promise I’m not lazy and won’t cause mischief if you take me home. I’m very friendly and happy. I’m simply looking for a loving family and a forever home. However, I do love eating and sleeping. I’m 12 years young and house-trained. Oh, and did I mention I LOVE lasagna?

Sweet, loyal senior girl searching for loving home. A Chow and Shepherd mix with an exceptional bronze and black coat, I’m 10 years old but a kid at heart and in health — thus my name. My soft personality is brimming with compassion, and I’m a loyal companion who doesn’t ask for much — just a quiet home where kindness abounds and there’s lots of love to make the world go ‘round.

I’m that quintessential family dog from the silver screen, complete with movie star looks and the name to match! Just over 2 years old, I’m an Otterhound mix, about 60 pounds, with a darling tan and black coat. Like many stars I’m a bit snippy and a little sensitive. That, combined with my high energy level, means I wouldn’t be happy around young kids. I am the star of the show, afterall. Will you roll out the red carpet for me?

Everyone says I’m “easy on the eyes,” and please come see for yourself. Whether it’s my handsome face, my physique, or my beautiful brindle coat, I’m a sophisticated 2-year-old American Staffordshire Terrier, a shade over 50 pounds, and ready to learn from an experienced owner. Cats, other dogs, and even kids aren’t really my thing. Loyalty and one-on-one love is what this Beau is all about. That’s what I can give, and you know what, that’s a heck of a deal.
