Robbery victim testifies at trial The victim of two 2011 Lawrence robberies on Monday identified a 23-year-old Franklin County man as a participant in both incidents. Jurors heard opening testimony Monday in the trial of Mikael Englund, of Richmond, whom prosecutors accuse of acting with others to rob Austin Longhurst in January and March of 2011 at Longhurst’s apartment in the 800 block of Hilltop Drive. Longhurst told jurors Friday that he recognized Englund as a participant in both robberies. He said Englund and co-defendant Trenton Rowsey, an Ottawa man who has pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 32 months in prison in the case, used a handgun to rob him of marijuana and other items. He alleged that in a second robbery about two months later, he was beaten by Englund and two other men, when they stole money and other items from him. A juvenile and another man, Dustin A. Smith, 24, also of Richmond, have entered pleas and are serving time for the second robbery. Englund’s trial will continue today in Douglas County District Court. 609 N.H. (offices) • 645 N.H.

CRIMSON AND FEELING BLUE Still, KU fans laud ‘a great game’ By Chad Lawhorn

The banjo music should have been a clue. All afternoon and evening as downtown Lawrence grew into a giant street party in advance of Monday’s national championship matchup versus Kentucky, Mike Helvey entertained the crowd with banjo music at the corner of Seventh and Massachusetts streets. Yes, the banjo — as in Richard Gwin/Journal-World Photos bluegrass, as in Kentucky. “I do know ‘My Old Ken- ANDREW MURRAY AND GIRLFRIEND KASEY CROSTAROSA WATCHED IN MISERY at Jefferson’s Restaurant, 743 Mass., as the Kansas Jayhawks tucky Home’, but I don’t fell to the Kentucky Wildcats, 67-59, in the national championship game in New Orleans on Monday.

It appears two people are living in trailers parked on Massachusetts Street in front of South Park and the police station. Can you please explain the legality of this situation?


In nonresidentially zoned areas of Lawrence, such as the strip of parking on Massachusetts Street in front of South Park, city ordinances allow people to park large vehicles — defined as a vehicle more than 20 feet long and 8 feet tall — for 48 hours at a time. So, as long as the trailers are moved every two days, it’s legal. Last November, the JournalWorld printed a feature story on two people living in such structures. The article can be found at

Man injured in Sunday shooting

Speeding, alcohol suspected in crash

Lawrence police Monday said a 22-year-old Lawrence man was the victim of a shooting early Sunday in northern Lawrence. The man was found injured about 3:30 a.m. outside apartments in the 1300 block of Michigan Way, said Sgt. Trent McKinley, a police spokesman. The apartments are just north of the intersection of Second and Michigan streets. Officers at the scene initially reported the man was shot in the leg, according to according to Operation 100’s Mike Frizzell, the JournalWorld’s reporting partner. The victim, whose home address is not in the apartment complex, was initially taken to Lawrence Memorial Hospital for treatment of injuries that police said were not believed to be life-threatening. He later was transferred to Kansas University Hospital in Kansas City, Kan., where no information was available on his condition. Kim Murphree, a Lawrence police spokeswoman, said Monday the shooting remained under investigation.

Kansas University police suspect speeding and alcohol contributed to a crash that injured a 21-year-old Prairie Village man Saturday night on campus. Assistant KU Police Chief Chris Keary said Jonathan Chappas lost control of the 1998 Lexus car he was driving and missed the curve on northbound Sunflower Road just west of Watson Library. The car flipped over and then struck a tree at the southwest corner of the intersection with Jayhawk Boulevard. A witness estimated Chappas was driving 40 to 45 mph in a 20 mph zone, Keary said. No one else was involved in the crash that occurred at 8:19 p.m. Saturday. Chappas, who is not listed as a KU student, was flown to Kansas University Hospital in Kansas City, Kan. Chappas was listed in serious condition Monday morning, KU Hospital spokesman Bob Hallinan said. Officers found evidence of an open container in the vehicle.



LAW ENFORCEMENT REPORT INJURY ACCIDENT • A 41-year-old Lawrence man who has been charged and accused in a child sex crime case posted $45,000 bond and was given notice to appear in court April 16. According to jail records, the man was arrested on a warrant Saturday by Lawrence police on suspicion of indecent liberties with a child for an alleged incident that occurred Tuesday. The Journal-World generally does not identify sex crime suspects unless they are convicted. • A 24-year-old Atchison woman, Sophia Sherell Dew, was arrested about 12:45 a.m. Sunday in the 1000 block of Massachusetts Street as she was trying to leave the downtown area in her vehicle through a crowd of people during the victory celebration after Kansas University against Ohio State. District Attorney Charles Branson said the woman is charged with two counts of misdemeanor battery, but no one was injured. She was released from jail later Monday afternoon on $1,000 bond. Kim Murphree, a Lawrence police spokeswoman, said Dew backed out of a parking stall and struck several individuals. Two men ended up on the trunk of the car, but they reported they were not injured, Murphree said.

HOSPITAL BIRTHS Joe Bond, student, Lawrence “Saturday night. It was nice because we were at Liberty Hall so we could walk right out.”

• A 40-year-old Eudora man was taken to the hospital with minor injuries Monday afternoon after a rollover accident on Kansas Highway 10 east of Lawrence. Sgt. Steve Lewis, a Douglas County Sheriff’s spokesman, said Phillip Jared Marshall at 1:18 p.m. was driving his 1979 Jeep CJ-7 east on K-10 when he lost control of the vehicle. Marshall told officers he believed the transmission locked up, causing the vehicle to leave the highway to the south and roll several times. Marshall remained in the vehicle as it rolled over, Lewis said. He was taken to Lawrence Memorial Hospital.

The Journal-World does not print accounts of all police reports filed. The newspaper generally reports: • Burglaries, only with a loss of $1,000 or more, unless there are unusual circumstances. To protect victims, we generally don’t identify them by name. • The names and circumstances of people arrested, only after they are charged. • Assaults and batteries, only if major injuries are reported. • Holdups and robberies.

FSHS counselor killed in car-train accident By George Diepenbrock and Christine Metz,

A Free State High School counselor died early Monday in a cartrain collision just north of Lawrence, said Sgt. Steve Lewis, a Douglas County Sheriff’s spokesman. Lewis said that about 2:20 a.m. Aimee Ziegler drove her westbound silver Honda car around crossing gates and onto the tracks, where it was hit by a southbound Union Pacific train near North 1800 Road and East 1450 Road, just east of the Riverfront Park in North Lawrence. A licensed clinical social worker, Ziegler, 40, worked with hundreds of students in the Lawrence school district during the past 15 years. In 2008, she was hired as a counselor at Free State High School. “She had a great relationship with all of the kids,” Free State Principal Ed West said. The intersection is west of Tee Pee Junction, which is the intersection of U.S. Highways 24-40 and 24-59. Mark Davis, a Union Pacific Railroad spokesman, said the train was carrying coal from Wyoming to East St. Louis, Ill. The train resumed its route about 7 a.m. He said


Debaters make Elite 8 in national contest By Andy Hyland

The NCAA basketball tournament in New Orleans wasn’t the only college championship up for grabs on Monday night, as the Kansas University debate squad had a team advance to the Elite Eight of the National Debate Tournament before getting eliminated. The team of Sean and Patrick Kennedy, two brothers who are seniors from Leawood, defeated Baylor in the Sweet 16 round of the tournament before losing to Loyola University, according to updates from the Kansas Debate team’s Facebook page. This year’s tournament was held at Emory University in Atlanta. The Kennedys earned the seventh overall seed in the elimination rounds of the tournament. Another KU squad, seniors Mathew Petersen and Mark Wilkins, earned the 16th overall seed and dropped in the Sweet 16 round to the tournament’s top overall seed from Northwestern University, according to updates from the team. The resolution this year focuses on foreign policy: “Resolved: The United States Federal Government should substantially increase its democracy assistance to one or more of he following; Egypt, Libya, Syria, Tunisia, Yemen.” The Kennedys made it to the Elite Eight of the NDT following a performance in which they advanced to the semifinals of the Cross Examination Debate Association’s national tournament the previous weekend. — Higher education reporter Andy Hyland can be reached at 832-6388.

that the company was investigating the crash and that it offered counseling and sup- Ziegler port to the train’s crew. “It’s a traumatic incident, in general, and our hearts always go out to the friends and family of the person that was struck,” Davis said. “But also to our train crew members because they had to witness a collision. Our message to drivers is always heed the warnings that are there. Those signals mean the same thing, and that’s yield the right of way to a train.” On Monday, the Lawrence school district’s crisis support team was on hand at Free State as staff and students grieved. Ziegler, who was married, had three children. “On behalf of the Lawrence public schools, I offer our deepest sympa-

thies to Aimee’s family,” Superintendent Rick Doll said in a written statement. “We are saddened by this loss.” Before her work as counselor at Free State, Ziegler helped start and then worked for Bert Nash Community Mental Health Center’s WRAP program. WRAP, which stands for Working to Recognize Alternative Possibilities, focuses on bringing mental health services to schools. Ziegler was a WRAP worker at Free State from 1997 to 2004 and at Wakarusa School from 2004 to 2008. Making sure students got the services they needed was a quality that defined Ziegler’s career, Bert Nash CEO David Johnson said. “It’s a big loss for us. It’s a loss of a colleague and friend for a lot of staff here,” Johnson said. When Ziegler worked with the WRAP program at Free State, she also spent time as an assistant

girls’ soccer coach, an assistant girls’ basketball coach and an assistant boys’ soccer coach at the school. West said Ziegler’s time with the WRAP program provided insight into the lives of at-risk students and children with severe needs. And, her coaching background gave her a unique perspective on athletes. Despite a counseling caseload of several hundred students a year, Ziegler made her students “feel like the most important thing to her,” when she met with them oneon-one, West said. “She was someone who could relate well with kids and was full of life,” West said. — Reporter George Diepenbrock can be reached at 832-7144.

State to get nearly $8M when ticket cashed in By Scott Rothschild

TOPEKA — In addition to the resident holding one of the three winning tickets from last week’s Mega Millions jackpot, the state of Kansas will become a winner too. Ticket holders in Kansas, Maryland and Illinois will share an estimated $656 million prize in the largest lottery jackpot in U.S. history. The state of Kansas will receive $7.9 million in withholding tax from the jackpot winner who bought the ticket in Kan-

sas, according to the Kansas Lottery. The holder of that ticket hasn’t come forward yet, so the Kansas Lottery hasn’t released where the ticket was sold except to say it was in northeast Kansas, which includes Douglas County. The store where the ticket was sold will receive a $10,000 bonus after the prize is claimed. Mega Millions is played in 42 states, the District of Columbia and U.S. Virgin Islands — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

Kansas winner still unknown TOPEKA (AP) — Kansas Lottery officials say the holder of the state’s winning Mega Millions ticket has not come forward to claim a share of the $656 million jackpot. Lottery spokeswoman Cara Sloan-Ramos said Monday that no one has contacted the lottery about the prize from Friday’s drawing. The winning ticket was purchased in northeast Kansas, though lottery officials don’t plan to identify the store until the winner comes forward.

Winning tickets also were sold in Illinois and Maryland, making the Kansas ticket worth about $218 million. Kansas law gives a prize winner a year to claim a jackpot, and it allows winners to remain anonymous. The prize must be claimed either at the Kansas Lottery’s headquarters in Topeka or at its regional office in Great Bend. No one holding one of the three winning tickets has come forward yet to claim a share of the prize, officials said.

Iowa gov. seeks federal probe on ‘pink slime’ DES MOINES, IOWA — Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad called Monday for a congressional investigation into how what he called “a smear campaign” against the meat product commonly called “pink slime” got started. The company that makes the product, South Dakotabased Beef Products Inc., announced last week that it would stop production at plants in Iowa, Kansas and Texas amid public outcry. There are no precise numbers on how prevalent the Jeanny Sharp/The Ottawa Herald/AP Photo product known in the indusTHE WRECKAGE OF A BOX try as lean, finely textured TRUCK that was pulling a trailbeef is, but past estimates er lies in a ravine after it hit a have ranged as high as 70 guardrail and a concrete bridge percent; one industry official near Williamsburg on Sunday. estimated it was in at least Authorities said 18 people half of the ground meat and were inside the vehicle when burgers in the United States. it crashed, killing five.

Teen was driver in crash

JORDAN, MINN. (AP) — A 17-year-old boy was behind the wheel of a semi pulling a box trailer converted into a recreational vehicle when the 57,000-pound rig crashed through a guardrail and into a Kansas ravine, killing five of the 18 people on board. Adam Kerber’s driver’s license wouldn’t have allowed him to drive a commercial vehicle like that because of its weight and because it was carrying more than 15 people. But neither of the restrictions applied because of a loophole in Minnesota state law regarding private RVs. The 13 injured in the crash included Kerber, who was still in critical condition Monday. All those injured or killed were friends or members of the Kerber family. The crash happened about 9 a.m. Sunday as the family returned from an annual motocross vacation in Texas. Their Freightliner cab and Haulmark trailer broke through a guardrail on Interstate 35 in Kansas and plunged into a ravine. Kerber and another teen were the only people wearing seat belts. A neighbor familiar with the trailer said he didn’t believe it even had seat belts, which aren’t required in Minnesota other than in a vehicle’s front seat. John Marks, of Jordan, told The Associated Press that several of the Kerber children were motocross racers, who referred to the family rig as a “toterhome” because they used it to tote their motorcycles and other equipment to events. Marks, who had been inside the mobile home, said the box trailer was divided into two sections, with furnished living quarters in the forward end with a refrigerator, store, TV, toilet, and a separate bedroom. Motorcycles and equipment was kept in back. As far as he knew, there were no seat belts in the trailer. Many companies sell or modify trailers for use as recreational vehicles. They are especially popular with motor sports enthusiasts and horse breeders. Tom Meyer, who runs Tom’s Custom Coach and Trailers in Independence, Mo., said most manufacturers or modifiers advise people not to ride in them without seat belts. But customers “are pretty lax about that,” he said. “They think they’re back in a big motor home, they’re pretty safe,” he said. The Kerber family was headed by Pauline Kerber, 46, who was in stable condition Monday at Overland Park Regional Medical Center in Kansas. The Kansas Highway Patrol identified the dead as Tom Kerber, 25, of New Prague, Minn., and Jessica Kerber, 10, Joy Kerber, 14, and James Kerber, 12, of Jordan, Minn. Tom Kerber’s wife, Melissa Kerber, 24, also died. Those injured ranged in age from 2 to 30 and were taken to various hospitals.


The phrase “pink slime,” coined by a federal microbiologist, has appeared in the media at least since a critical 2009 New York Times report. Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver has railed against it, and McDonald’s and other major chains discontinued its use last year. “We have a smear campaign going on against a product that is healthy and safe,” Branstad said at his weekly news conference. “If they get by with this, what other food products are they going to attack next?” The governor said he suggested an inquiry to U.S. Reps. Steve King and Leonard Boswell and raised the issue with Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack, a former Iowa governor.

Legislative delays The inability of state lawmakers to resolve key state issues in a timely fashion is even worse than usual this year.


ansans can only hope that state legislators come to their senses in the next three weeks and return to Topeka ready to deal with the many key issues they left unresolved when they left the Capitol last Friday. Perhaps the most egregious piece of business left unfinished was passage of a supplemental budget bill. This is not the budget for the coming fiscal year; it is an appropriation to help address budget shortfalls for the current year. Passage of the bill on Friday should have been routine. A House-Senate conference committee had agreed on the terms, but when it came time to vote, members of the Kansas House rejected the measure based on how the supplemental funds for K-12 schools should be financed. There was no disagreement about the amount of the $24.5 million appropriation, but the governor and the Senate wanted the money to come from the state general fund while the House wanted to take the money from state highway funds. Because of that relatively minor issue, legislators failed to pass the appropriations bill and will have to take it up again when they return to Topeka on April 25. In the meantime, various state entities will have to figure out how to keep operating without the supplemental funds they needed. In addition to school districts, the appropriations bill also included money to offset shortfalls in docket fees to fund state court operations and income to operate state parks. Chief Justice Lawton Nuss has indicated that without the funding, court employees may be furloughed and courts closed for up to five days. The opening of state parks also may be delayed. The supplemental appropriations also would have addressed caseload increases for nursing homes and Medicaid along with other important services — all of which now are on hold for at least three weeks. In addition, the Legislature’s delay in approving redistricting maps for the Kansas House and Senate and the U.S. House is pushing the state dangerously close to the June 1 filing deadline for legislative and congressional candidates. Those candidates can’t file for office or start their campaigns until they know for sure that they live in the district they hope to represent. One of the Senate’s last acts before leaving Topeka Friday was to vote down a congressional redistricting map that cut Topeka in two in order to keep Manhattan in the 2nd District. The Kansas Legislature’s spring recess is supposed to come after most of the business of the session is done. The intent is for legislators to return in three weeks mostly to tie up loose ends and consider overriding any vetoes issued by the governor during the break. In recent years, it has become routine for the budget and several other key issues to be left until the “veto session,” but, this year, legislators have been unable to agree on just about anything — even the supplemental funding for the current year’s budget. During the next three weeks, Kansans may have an opportunity to speak with some of their state representatives. If they do, they should let them know it’s time to step up to the responsibilities that go with the job they were elected to do.

Romney will need Republican base It’s not difficult to analyze Campaign 2012. A kindergarten pupil could do it if he followed these simple instructions: Take a map of the United States and three crayons. Color the states Mitt Romney has won so far in red. Color the states Rick Santorum has won in blue. Color the states Newt Gingrich has won in green. Then look at the results. You’ll see that Romney’s states replicate almost exactly the states Barack Obama won four years ago. Almost all of Santorum’s states line up with the states John McCain took. Gingrich’s two states also went for McCain. That leads us to these twin conclusions: Romney is weak where the Republicans are strong and strong where the Republicans are weak. Santorum (and Gingrich) shows strength in Republican areas and weakness in Democratic areas. There are few nuances in these results. Romney has lost three states that have voted Republican 11 consecutive times and one state that voted Republican each of the last 12 times except for 1976, when

a Southerner, Gov. Jimmy Carter of Georgia, was on the ballot. He lost two states that have voted Republican 10 of the last 12 times. Not every presumptive Republican nominee can claim that. To take this analysis to the next level: Santorum speaks to the GOP base for the general election in 2012, Romney to areas where Republicans will likely struggle in November.

Can Romney win? That’s the easy part. The hard part is figuring out whether Romney’s profile is a prescription for winning the general election or a roadmap to disaster. Let’s take the dark side for Romney first. By basically relinquishing the South, the party’s modern base — losing six of the eight states of the Old Confederacy that have voted — Romney has displayed a dangerous inability to speak the rhetoric and speak to the issues that made the GOP the party of governance for much of the period 1969 to 2009.

You are shrinking the size of your product and keeping the same subscription price. That is not a bargain. I think we will have to look elsewhere for our news and that is unfortunate for you and us. Rich Noever, Lawrence

Porching charge To the editor: As threatened, on April 1, my daily Journal-World, which has for the last five years always appeared on my porch, suddenly appeared at the far end of my driveway. I was curious whether this would happen, as it was unclear whether “guaranteed porch delivery” meant “we’ll work hard to make sure you get porch delivery” or the veiled threat “you are guaranteed to not get your newspaper on your porch, unless you cough up 50 percent more a month.” As I expected, it was the latter. Walking down my block Monday morning, seeing the sidewalk newly strewn with newspapers, I could only think “Thank you, Journal World, for making it that much harder for your elderly and disabled customers to retrieve their papers and for exploiting a new opportunity to gouge your loyal subscribers.” I don’t mind if you’re a company that provides a new service in exchange for an additional charge. That’s fair. But the Journal-World has taken a new tack:

Editor’s note: Yes, we stumbled badly and on one of the worst days possible. We apologize. Computer problems, compounded by human mistakes, compounded by equipment issues on the day of a late basketball game and the day of carrier and route changes all caused us to let you down. We don’t want to make excuses, but we ask for understanding. We didn’t come near the service level we strive to meet. We feel terrible about it. We apologize to all our subscribers. And to those asking about the charge for porch delivery, we want you to know the entire amount of that charge goes to your carrier. “We won’t increase our customer service level and ask you to pay for it. Instead, we’ll DECREASE our level of service and make you pay more in order to regain it!” Congratulations, I can only imagine the high-fives in the marketing department the day that brilliant idea was hatched. I look forward to the next phase of ratcheting down your customer service level: Will you supply the newspaper, but only in secret code form, easily deciphered with a decoder available for an additional monthly fee? Richard Andrade, Lawrence

Delivery fee To the editor: On Dec. 11, 1997, the paper said, “We are in the process of changing to porch delivery in all Lawrence residential areas where it proves feasible. Although we do not charge more for porch delivery, your carrier receives additional compensation

for providing that service.” Now, for this “blue ribbon service,” we are required to pay an extra $5 per month. We used to tip our carrier for which the carrier put the paper on the porch. This will no longer happen as we’re being held ransom; in fact, this morning (Monday) the paper was in the grass, in the dark, and we didn’t see it until we drove out of the drive to go to work. I envision regular deliveries buried in the snow, in water and so on, rather than where the paper is easily accessible. Well done, this is why we canceled our subscription to the KC Star. Additionally, who gets the $5 per month, the Journal-World or the delivery person? If you say the delivery person, how can you guarantee to your subscribers that what you say it true? Ralph P. Reed, Lawrence

J-W still a good deal To the editor: Tears in a bucket! No Sunday paper! In checking the online version, the late delivery and inconvenience was noted. But no complaint. At an early hour Sunday in my yard, clutches of revelers were cheering Kansas University’s basketball win over Ohio State by two points! With grass unmowed, celebrants in the yard, it’s possible somebody picked up my paper. Can’t blame ‘em for that. I’m proud of the team playing all the way to the Final Four and was excitedly hoping for Monday’s game. Tomorrow, a paper on my porch as always by the usual carrier. The Journal-World is a good deal, the content good, a helpful staff, better news than television’s fitful offerings. So dry your tears, folks. Appreciate your paper and items you may clip and save for others and yourself. Online news just doesn’t cut it. Sue Hess, Lawrence

THE ICONIC “HOME OF THE CHESTY LIONS” SIGN has found a new home at Lawrence High School. On Monday morning, facilities and maintenance worker Tom Lauts helped secure the 4-by-12 foot redwood sign in place. For five months, the Lawrence school district’s facilities and maintenance crew cleaned, oiled and reframed the once-faded sign, which was donated by the Lawrence High Class of 1982 nearly 30 years ago. On Monday, the staff reinstalled the sign, moving it from the west entrance of the school’s parking lot along 19th Street to the south side of LHS football field, where it will perform dual roles of welcoming visitors and providing a screen for mechanical transformers.

ANTHONY DAVIS, LEFT, FORCES ELIJAH JOHNSON INTO A TRAVELING CALL late in the second half of KU’s 67-59 loss to Kentucky. The play came at a crucial point late in the title game Monday in New Orleans.

KU falls to UK, but not without a fight By Gary Bedore

NEW ORLEANS — Thomas Robinson stood at the freethrow line closest to Kansas University’s basketball bench, bending over at the waist as tears streamed down his cheeks late Monday night in the Superdome.

KU’s big, bruising junior forward needed assistance from teammates Tyshawn Taylor and Kevin Young, who consoled the 6-foot-10 future NBA lottery pick after the Jayhawks’ 67-59 loss to Kentucky in the NCAA title game. “It hurts. I wanted to win Please see KANSAS, page 6B

Take-away: Jayhawks didn’t quit NEW ORLEANS — The takeaway from the 2011-2012 Kansas University basketball team is not that the bench scored three points in the Final Four, none in the national-title game. It’s not that no player made as many shots as he missed in Monday night’s 67-59 loss to Kentucky in the Superdome. It’s not that Kansas did a poor job of getting back in transition early in the game and Kentucky cashed in.

Tom Keegan

When all that is forgotten, the memory that will endure has so little to do with basketball and so much

to do with team bonding, relentless effort, embracing adversity as a challenge to be confronted, never making an excuse. The take-away from this endearing basketball team is that it had not an ounce of quit in it. Not an ounce.

sions to assistant coach Joe Vitt and general manager Mickey Loomis and penalties handed down to the team. Goodell expects to hear the appeals this week, and hopes to make a ruling shortly thereafter. “Part of it depends exactly when the appeal is going to be, and second of all what information comes up in the appeal,� said Goodell, who has met with Payton twice before the appeal was filed. Meanwhile, league officials were meeting with NFL Players’ Association representatives Monday about penalties involving players who took part in the bounty program. The union has asked the NFL to provide it with all the information from the league’s inves-

tigation that revealed 22 to 27 defensive players were part of the Saints’ pay-for-pain bounty pool. The pool awarded thousands of dollars in cash bonuses from 2009-11 for vicious hits that knocked targeted opponents out of games. One example, according to the league: Linebacker Jonathan Vilma offered $10,000 to any New Orleans player who sidelined Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre during the 2010 NFC championship game. Goodell said the league has given the NFLPA two confidential reports on the investigation. “I think we all need to move forward,� he said. “We’ve been open about what we’ve been able to find. We released it publicly.�

The commissioner said he’s hopeful the NFLPA will have a recommendation soon after meeting with league officials. The results of the appeal could well affect whether Parcells comes out of retirement to take over as interim coach while his former offensive assistant and protege is suspended. Parcells has said he would consider coaching the Saints if asked. Payton and Loomis played golf with the former NFL coach last week to talk to him about the team’s predicament. Parcells, who turns 71 in August, led the New York Giants to two Super Bowl titles, and also coached the New England Patriots, New York Jets and Dallas Cowboys.





NFL won’t object to Parcells NEW YORK (AP) — NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says he won’t stand in the way if the New Orleans Saints ask Bill Parcells to take over as interim coach for suspended Sean Payton. “That’s their decision. They need to make those decisions and we’ll move forward,� Goodell said Monday at the opening of an NFL pop-up store featuring new team apparel. “Bill’s a great coach, and I’m sure (he) will add a lot of personality and intrigue. And he’s as competitive as they get so I’m sure he’ll do a good job.� Before the Saints pick someone to run the team this year, though, Goodell still has to rule on Payton’s appeal of his season-long suspension, along with the appeals of shorter suspen-

By Tara Sullivan The Record (Hackensack, N.J)

Augusta National doesn’t deserve such an obvious and easy escape hatch from its own antiquated memberships policy, but through the power of someone else’s corporate progressiveness, the storied Georgia golf club now eyes a path to inclusion that should end this stubborn debate for good. Simply by honoring one of its own long-standing practices of extending membership to CEOs of select major corporations, including Masters sponsor IBM, Augusta would erase another long-standing practice of excluding women as club members. When Ginni Rometty became the first female CEO of IBM earlier this year, she inadvertently thrust Augusta’s private shame back into the public domain, forcing the club into a choice it should have made long ago. What will Augusta do? Size Rometty for a traditional green jacket, as it’s done for past IBM heads? Or stick by the all-male policy former club chairman Hootie Johnson infamously declared would not change “at the point of a bayonet�? In fairness, it’s possible Augusta has already made its choice and we just don’t know it. Membership lists and any discussion of them are shrouded in secrecy, and that policy will surely remain in effect. Two years ago, Payne was talking about Tiger Woods when he said, “Is there a way forward? I hope yes. I think yes. But certainly his future will never again be measured only by his performance against par; but measured by the sincerity of his efforts to change.� Are Payne and his Augusta brethren willing to change, too? And on the flip side, is IBM, one of three corporate Masters sponsors along with Exxon and AT&T, willing to go public with a demand for Rometty’s green jacket inclusion? Martha Burk, the gender-equity activist who led a protest at Augusta in 2003, certainly believes so. “The company has a huge responsibility here not to undermine its first female CEO, and if they accept anything less than a full membership ... they’re going to undermine (her), and they’ll be making a statement that they don’t consider her equal to her predecessors,� she told “IBM can pull out and say, ‘We want nothing else to do with this, these are not the values of our company,’ or the club can relent and say, ‘We welcome women as members.’ Those are the only two options that are viable that are going to wash with the public.� Your serve, Augusta. IBM gave you a gift. Don’t ignore it. Do the right thing.

GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS COACH DON NELSON, RIGHT, bows to fans as his wife, Joy, looks on during a ceremony honoring him as the NBA’s all-time leader in victories in this April 2010 photo. Nelson is among those who will be inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, it was announced Monday.

Miller, Nelson, Sampson selected for Hall NEW ORLEANS — Reggie Miller rode his sister’s coat-tails all the way to the Hall of Fame. The five-time All-Star joined longtime NBA coach Don Nelson and college standout Ralph Sampson on Monday as part of a 12-member class that will be inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in September. Miller’s sister, Cheryl, was enshrined in 1995. Miller was at home when he received the call a couple days ago that he had gained entrance to the exclusive club. He quickly called his sister, one of the pioneers of the women’s game. “I can still hear her screaming in my ear,� Miller said with a smile. Miller often recalls the story about how his sister would beat him in games of one-on-one growing up. It wasn’t until he’d grown to 6-foot7 and could block Cheryl’s shot that they finally quit playing those driveway pick-up games. “She was a role model. She is a role model. She set the bar high for the family,� Miller said, “and I’m just glad I’m on her coat-tails, dragging me along to the Hall of Fame.� The club in Springfield, Mass., now includes two-time Olympic gold medalist Katrina McClain, four-time NBA champion Jamaal Wilkes, longtime college referee Hank Nichols and the All-American Red Heads — the female version of the Harlem Globetrotters. The newcomers were joined by five members of the class who already had been announced: Nike co-founder Phil Knight, ABA star Mel Daniels, seven-time NBA All-Star Chet Walker, Olympian Don Barksdale and Lydija Alexeeva, who led the Soviet Union to two Olympic gold medals. The class will be inducted during a ceremony scheduled for Sept. 7. “I was sitting on my back porch, smoking a cigar, when I got the call,� said Nelson, a five-time NBA champion as a player and the winningest coach in league history. “It was a great moment for me. I’m the luckiest man in the world,� Nelson said. “I’ve been involved with the game of basketball for over 60 years, and I’ve never had a bad day, even when we lost games. They’ve all been great days.� The 7-foot-4 Sampson was one of the most dominant college players in history, a three-time national player of the year who led Virginia to the Final Four. He was the first overall pick in the NBA draft and a four-time All-Star before injuries finally slowed his career.


Ex-QB Leaf arrested again HELENA, MONT. — Former NFL quarterback Ryan Leaf was arrested again Monday, just days after he posted bail on similar charges that he burglarized a home and stole prescription drugs, authorities said.

Leaf was first arrested on Friday after police found oxycodone pills in his golf bag that an acquaintance later said Leaf stole from his home. Then early Monday, three days after posting a $76,000 bond, he was arrested again on accusations that he broke into another home outside Great Falls, Central Montana Drug Task Force Commander Chris Hickman said. The owners walked into the home Sunday afternoon to find a “tall man with an athletic build� inside, Hickman said. The man told the owners he had the wrong address and left.


Jimenez suspended five games GOODYEAR, ARIZ. — Cleveland Indians pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez has been suspended for five games and fined by Major League Baseball for intentionally throwing at Colorado’s Troy Tulowitzki during a spring-training game. The penalty was announced Monday by MLB. Jimenez will serve his suspension during the first five games of the season unless he asks the players’ association to appeal the decision by MLB senior vice president Joe Garagiola Jr. Before the penalty was announced, Jimenez said he wasn’t going to apologize to Tulowitzki after hitting his former Rockies teammate on the left elbow Sunday.

Cain, Giants agree on deal SAN FRANCISCO — Matt Cain has that hefty new contract he hoped for before opening day. Cain and the San Francisco Giants agreed Monday to a $127.5 million, six-year contract, the largest deal for a right-handed pitcher in baseball history. The agreement adds $112.5 million over five years to the $15 million salary for 2012 that was remaining in his previous deal. Cain gets a $5 million signing bonus as part of the new contract and $20 million annually from 2013-17. The deal includes a $21 million option for 2018 with a $7.5 million buyout that, if exercised, would raise the total to $141 million over seven seasons.

Tongie chooses football coach


J-W Staff Reports

TONGANOXIE — Pending board approval, the Tonganoxie school district plans to hire Al Troyer as the new Tonganoxie High football coach, the district announced Monday in a press release. Troyer, a Hutchinson native and 28-year coaching veteran, comes to Tonganoxie from Larned High School, where he assumed head-coaching duties before the 2008-09 season. Before heading to LHS, he spent 22 years teaching and coaching in the Richardson (Texas) Independent School District. “We feel our school district is very fortunate to obtain a football coach with the abundance of knowledge that coach Troyer has obtained through his years in education,” THS athletic director Brandon Parker said in the release. “Coach Troyer’s football resume shows that he has worked with all levels of athletes and, regardless of their natural ability, he knows his ultimate job is to motivate students by challenging them to become better people and football players by building their self-esteem.” Troyer was one of 21 applicants interviewed for the position. He takes over a squad that went 1-8 last season under interim head coach Matt Bond. Former head coach Mark Elston announced his resignation two days before the start of the 2011 season. Elston had been suspended following an altercation with a player during practice.

KANSAS CITY ROYALS’ ALEX GORDON PREPARES for an at-bat during a spring-training game on March 24 in Scottsdale, Ariz.

K.C. slugging this spring SURPRISE, ARIZ. (AP) — Judging by spring training, the Kansas City Royals will score lot of runs this season. However, they may also allow plenty of them too. The Royals left Arizona on Monday with a Cactus League-leading .303 batting average, scoring 155 runs. The first four hitters in the lineup hit at least .385 — Eric Hosmer .416, Lorenzo Cain .394, Billy Butler .388 and Alex Gordon .385. All had an OPS (on-base plus slugging percentage) of higher than 1.000. Hosmer left Arizona with a 13-game hitting streak and a major leagueleading 29 RBIs. “I feel like every time he comes up and there’s a runner on he’s going to drive them in,” Royals manager Ned Yost said. “I think he’s going to be a special player for us for years to come.” Hosmer sports a Mohawk haircut that Kan-

sas City actor Rob Riggle labeled “The Warrior” when he took batting practice with the team in March. “We’re confident that we can be a real good team,” Hosmer said. “We just want to get going and see what this season has for us.” After exhibition games today and Wednesday against the San Diego Padres in California, the Royals will open the season Friday at the Los Angeles Angels. The Royals will need their pitching to improve for them to make the playoffs for the first time since winning the 1985 World Series. Despite the lofty offensive numbers, the Royals entered Monday 15-15 in the spring, because the pitching staff allowed 160 runs. Only the Cleveland Indians gave up more runs. Opponents hit .301 against Kansas City pitching.

Baylor one win away ————

Bears to meet Irish for title tonight DENVER (AP) — All season long, Baylor has been the best team led by the best player in the country. And that just makes the stakes in tonight’s NCAA championship a little higher. Anything short of a women’s national title would be deemed a failure for Brittney Griner and her Lady Bears. That may explain why Baylor hasn’t focused on an undefeated season, nor on becoming the first team in NCAA history to win 40 games. Griner and her teammates just want to win the school’s second title. Standing in the way is Notre Dame, a team on a mission ever since losing in last year’s championship to Texas A&M and sparked by maybe NCAA the nation’s secFINAL ond-most dynamic Who: Baylor p l a y e r , (39-0) vs. All-AmerNotre Dame ican Sky(35-3) lar Diggins. When: 7:30 T h e tonight t o urnaTV: ESPN ment’s (Knology top seed cable channels 33, 233) a g a i n s t No. 2. Just the way the selection committee drew it up. “40-0 was never really the goal,” said Griner at a news conference Monday. “We have team goals each year and our goal was to win a national championship. “If you lose, you can’t win a national championship. You’ve got to go 40-0 now.” Griner knows that despite the Lady Bears’ incredible season, how it’s judged will depend on tonight. “We don’t have that ring yet,” the 6-foot-8 junior phenom said. “That’s the main goal. Until we get that, we’re going to feel like we haven’t really done anything.” The Irish know the feeling, having fallen just short last season to Texas A&M. Notre Dame (35-3) has been focused on getting back to this game all season long. Soon after Diggins and her Notre Dame teammates arrived back in South Bend after the championship last year, the junior guard went to the locker room. She put up on the chalkboard in the locker room, “Unfinished Business: 7670, 15:52,” the time referring to the game’s turning point. “We’ve had one goal all season long,” Diggins said. “We’ve wanted to get back here and play in this game.” The Irish have been one of the best teams in the country all season long,

BAYLOR’S BRITTNEY GRINER, LEFT, ANSWERS questions as coach Kim Mulkey listens during a news conference Monday in Denver. The Bears will take on Notre Dame tonight for the NCAA women’s basketball championship. but don’t have to worry about the weight of expectations. Most people are picking Baylor to win, including President Barack Obama, who predicted the title game correctly. “I think when you’re undefeated you have a lot of confidence that you’re playing with, but at the same time it’s just a little bit of pressure of knowing that you’ve never lost. And when it gets down to the end of the game, you hope they feel that pressure,” Notre Dame coach Muffet McGraw said. “I think they have had a great season. They have one thing they want to do, same goal we have. And we’re back to being the underdog. Finally. It’s taken us a long time to get our green jerseys on. And we can now even be more loose and the pressure is all on them.” With a win, Baylor would become the seventh team to run through a season unbeaten, joining Connecticut — which has done it four times, Tennessee and Texas. It would be the school’s second national championship. Baylor also won in 2005. “Win or lose tomorrow we’re going to head back to Waco,” Baylor coach Kim Mulkey said. “Unfortunately, we’re 39-0 and you don’t want to lose that last game. We know

that whoever beats us, just make sure that you didn’t beat yourself. Make sure that team was better than you that night. If you do that, you can’t fault your effort.” The Lady Bears have used the same “unfinished business” mantra as the Irish after losing to Texas A&M in the regional final last season. Mulkey had the saying put up in the locker room, on notebooks and even handed out hundreds of those silicon wristband reminders to everyone associated with the program. “I think it’s a testament to the players. Coaches can come up with mottos and motivational tactics, but it boils down to those players,” Mulkey said. “They have to have that feeling I had last year and don’t want to have it again. Both programs and teams have done that. They have more seniors than we do. They made it to the national championship game last year. I guess you’d say they have a little more experience getting to a title game than we do.” The two teams met earlier this season in Waco, and Baylor came away with a 13-point victory. That was for the preseason WNIT title. Griner was unstoppable. She had 32 points and 14 rebounds.

KANSAS GUARD ELIJAH JOHNSON HANGS HIS HEAD in the locker room following the Jayhawks’ 67-59 loss to Kentucky in the national championship on Monday in New Orleans.

Elijah regrets travel call By Jesse Newell

NEW ORLEANS — Elijah Johnson’s biggest regret was the shot he made. With a white towel draped around his shoulders and tears in his eyes, the Kansas University junior guard shook his head when describing the three-pointer he put up with KU down six and 23 seconds left. The one that didn’t count after he was whistled for a travel. “I actually made that shot, too,” Johnson said after KU’s 67-59 loss to Kentucky in the national title game. “That was big. That was going to be the big shot, man.” Instead of cutting the lead to three, Johnson

watched later as a pair of Doron Lamb free throws put the game away with 17 seconds left. Johnson’s three was a play that he said he wouldn’t take back. When he received the pass, he started to go up for a three-pointer, only to see Kentucky’s 6-foot-10 Anthony Davis rushing at him. As Johnson started to leave the ground, he tried to put the ball down to dribble it. After bouncing it, he stepped back and swished the three, only to be interrupted by a whistle. “I personally think it hurts so bad when you think a call like that isn’t the right call, or something small like that ... I definitely think that the

ref, he had to make a decision,” Johnson said. “If he believed that I traveled, then it’s his ballgame. But just to be in that situation, I felt like I reacted to it perfectly. And to come up short, that just hurts.” Johnson was asked about the play again later by another reporter. “I want to see that play so bad, but the referee did a good job,” Johnson said. “No disrespect to the referee. He had to make a call, and he made the one he thought was best. I just didn’t feel like it was a travel. “But I don’t know. I was a part of the play. I didn’t get to watch it like you all did.” When time ran out on KU, Johnson became emotional on the court.

“I felt like somebody stomped me in my chest,” Johnson said between sniffles. “I couldn’t breathe. It killed me, man. It killed me.” Still, Johnson said he was proud of his teammates for battling back. KU trailed by 15 with just 5:44 to go before closing within five with 1:37 left. “At the end of the game, I looked at Cal (Kentucky coach John Calipari), and he was sitting on the sideline, and he looked nice and comfortable,” Johnson said. “And I kind of smiled at him. And he smiled back at me, because I knew that was our time to make him as uncomfortable as he had been the whole game.”

KANSAS PLAYERS JEFF WITHEY (5) AND KEVIN YOUNG WRESTLE FOR A POSSESSION with Kentucky players Doron Lamb (20), Anthony Davis (23) and Darius Miller during the first half of the national championship game. UK won, 67-59, Monday in New Orleans.


Johnson: T-Rob’s KU career ‘all over’ By Gary Bedore

he knew what the decision would be. Noted Elijah Johnson about his roommate: “I’d be stupid in my head to think Thomas would be back. It’s all over, man, it’s over,” he added, indicating he felt so sorry his buddy came out on the losing end. Withey, who had five points and four blocks, said: “I’m coming back. That’s the plan.” Johnson, who had 13 points, said of returning as senior floor general: “I’m definitely thinking about next year already. I plan on taking a couple weeks off, then getting in the gym. I plan on getting to work and not sleeping a lot.”

NEW ORLEANS — Kansas University junior Thomas Robinson, who is expected to be a top-five pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, obviously played his last game as a Kansas Jayhawk on Monday night. Juniors Elijah Johnson and Jeff Withey, however, indicated they’ll definitely return for their senior seasons. “I’ll let him make the announcement,” coach Bill Self said after the 6-foot10 junior Robinson went out with 18 points and 17 boards in a 67-59 national title loss to Kentucky in the Superdome. “I’d be shocked (if he came O back).” Robinson said “obviCase loves Jayhawks: ously” when asked if he Jeremy Case, a backhad a decision to make. He up guard on KU’s 2008 added “no” when asked if NCAA title team, said the


so bad,” Robinson said after scoring 18 points and grabbing 17 rebounds in 36 minutes. He hurt badly, but also was “proud” of his Jayhawks, who sliced an 18-point first-half deficit (39-21 at 2:49) and 15-point second-half deficit (5944 with 5:09 left) to five points (62-57) with 1:37 to play. “Like coach (Bill) Self said, I don’t think we lost this game. I think we just got beat. All season we’ve been coming back from 12-point deficits,” Robinson said, adding, “I’m just glad I got to be part of this team.” The Jayhawks (32-7), who trailed at half in four games in the 2012 NCAAs, again didn’t go quietly, this time against a powerful Kentucky squad (38-2), the overall No. 1 seed in the tourney. “That’s us. We’ve been the comeback kids all year,” junior guard Elijah Johnson said after scoring 13 points off 5-of-13 shooting. He was involved in one of the game’s key plays. With KU down 65-59, Johnson went up for a three-pointer in the corner, but came down with the ball in the hands and was whistled for a traveling call. He was bothered by UK big man Anthony Davis, who finished with six points off 1-for-10 shooting, with 16 rebounds, five assists,

six blocks and three steals. “Davis impacts the game so much with his length, and he’s so quick,” KU coach Self said. “He made an unbelievable play when he forced the walk. We tried but never could get it to a one-possession game.” Doron Lamb (gamehigh 22 points) cashed two free throws at :17 to conclude the scoring. Lamb, by the way, also hit back-to-back threes to boost a 48-38 lead to 54-38 with 10 minutes left. KU lagged 62-52 with 2:52 left following a three

2011-12 team’s march to the title game was aweinspiring. “I’m a little nervous, but more just happy and proud they made it here,” Case, assistant coach at Southeast Missouri State, said before the game. “They’ve played great. I’m really pulling for the guys to win it all.” He realized KU entered as a heavy underdog versus Kentucky. “They’ve got seven NBA players on that team,” Case said of the Wildcats. O

‘Keef’ proud: Markieff Morris of the Phoenix Suns ribbed his NBA teammate, Michael Redd, formerly of Ohio State, after the Jayhawks’ Final Four semifinal victory over the Buckeyes on Saturday. “Of course (I did),”

by Marquis Teague (14 points, 5-14 shooting). That’s when Johnson hit a three and Robinson two free throws, slicing the gap to 62-57 at 1:37. It reminded some of KU’s comeback from a nine-point deficit late in the 2008 title victory over Memphis, a team then coached by Kentucky’s John Calipari. KU’s Taylor had a near steal, however UK kept control of the ball. Davis was fouled and hit one of two free throws, making it 63-57 at 1:11. Then Taylor had a reverse layup rejected by Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. Taylor threw the ball away after grabbing his own rebound at :54.6. Teague was fouled and expanded UK’s lead to 65-57 at :53. “He made an unbelievable play. I thought I had it. I should have finished on the same side,” Taylor said of his layup try. “I felt I was too far under the rim. He didn’t quit on the play. Him not giving up and using his length, he made an unbelievable play.” KU’s comeback notwithstanding, the Jayhawks were disappointed they dug an 18-point hole. “Kentucky controlled everything the first 20 minutes. They had an unbelievable half and had us on our heels,” Self said. “We got the game the way we wanted it. It was a muddy track. We came up short, but I don’t think we lost. They just beat us.” Noted Taylor: “It sucks we have to be down 14 before we want to start fighting. But the fight never stops with us, man.” UK, which led by as

Morris told arizonasports. com. “He just keeps saying ‘You know, we should’ve won that game.’ I don’t know nothing. I’m going off what I watched.” Of the Jayhawks’ run, Morris said: “I had my shot last year. I was there with all those guys that are there now. I know what they’re capable of. I knew this year would be a good year for them. I was happy for those guys. They fought hard.” O

many as 17 points in a 10-point victory over KU in November in New York, blazed to an 18-point first half lead (39-21) and took a 14-point advantage (41-27) into the break. Kentucky, which was led by Lamb’s 12 points and Kidd-Gilchrist’s 11 (Teague had nine), hit 16 of 30 shots for 53.3 percent in the half (41.1 for the game to KU’s 35.5). KU, which received eight points from both Robinson and Taylor (Jeff Withey had five with two blocks), hit 11 of 33 for 33.3 percent that half. UK killed KU on the boards, 25-14, the first half and won the board battle, 43-35 overall. Davis, who didn’t score, grabbed nine rebounds and had four assists and three blocks in 18 minutes. “We played as individuals the first half,” Johnson lamented. “But we got it together and fought hard the second half. We let Kentucky know if they wanted it they were going to have to take it from us. We made them uncomfortable.” Yet the Wildcats were the ones clipping the nets afterward. “Seeing T-Rob like that ... it killed me,” Johnson said of the big man sobbing. “We’ve been working on this since October.” “It was heartbreaking, just heartbreaking,” noted Withey. KU’s Robinson and Taylor were named to the all-tournament team with Kentucky’s KiddGilchrist, Lamb and Davis. Davis was named most outstanding player of the Final Four.

Interesting comments on Twitter leading up to game: From former KU guard Josh Selby: “Rock chalk do I need to say more????” Former KU guard Rex Walters: “Who do you think the Walters Boys are rooting for tonight?” Also from the San Francisco Dons coach ... “Sooooooo Happy!!!!!!

Davis dominates for Wildcats By Matt Tait

NEW ORLEANS — During Monday night’s 67-59 victory over Kansas University in the national championship game at the Superdome, Kentucky center Anthony Davis shot 1-for-10, finished with just six points and was the best player in the game. And it wasn’t even close. Despite being held scoreless in the first half and struggling to find his rhythm on offense all night, Davis impacted the game in more ways than anyone else and helped

lead the Wildcats to their eighth NCAA championship and first since 1998. But it was a few words from his coach at halftime that made sure of that. “At halftime, I knew he didn’t have a point. Before he left the locker room, I said, ‘Listen to me, don’t you now go out and think you have to score,’” said UK coach John Calipari, who finally finished the season on top. “I said, ‘Don’t worry about it. You were the best player in the building.’ And then I think he went and shot the first three balls.” “I was open,” Davis said. “I know why you were

open,” Calipari said with a smile. “You were 1-for10. They were leaving you open.” If that was the case, it was the only way in which the Jayhawks (32-7) found an advantage against Davis, the 6-foot-10 freshman and Final Four’s Most Outstanding Player. He finished with 16 rebounds, six blocks, five assists and three steals, each seemingly coming at a crucial moment. Once, with the Jayhawks trying to mount a comeback, KU forward Thomas Robinson (18 points, 17 rebounds) ripped a onehanded rebound out of the

air after a missed shot by Davis. As Robinson held the ball by his hip, Davis poked it out from behind, and teammate Terrence Jones (nine points, seven rebounds) scooped it up for a rim-rattling dunk. Davis’ six blocks gave him 31 for the tournament, tying KU junior Jeff Withey during this year’s tourney and making the two defensive menaces co-record holders. They eclipsed the mark put up by former Florida star Joakim Noah, who had 29 blocks during the 2006 tournament. Each also blocked 11 shots in the Final Four, tying Noah’s output in 2006.

“I said this (to Davis) about a month ago,” recalled Calipari, asked about Davis’ impact. “‘What do you do to help us win when you are not scoring baskets?’ And he does about 50 things.” While Davis’ performance — both Monday night and throughout the season — no doubt will go down in Kentucky basketball lore, Calipari said he and his team understood that their victory over Kansas was about much more than one title. It was about adding to the program’s legacy and bringing joy back to Lexington, Ky.

“We did this for them, too,” Calipari said of the UK fan base. “We know what it means to them.” As for what the victory meant to Calipari, he refused to make it about him or bask in the glow of his accomplishment. He gave the credit to his players. “We were not just a talented team, we were a defensive team and a team that shared the ball, and I wanted everyone to see it,” Calipari said. “I told them I wanted this to be one for the ages. ‘Go out there and show everyone what kind of team you are.’”

Grizzlies 94, Thunder 88 OKLAHOMA CITY — O.J. Mayo scored 22 points, including a key three-pointer with 17 seconds left, and the Memphis Grizzlies prevented Oklahoma City from tying for the NBA’s best record by beating the Thunder. Oklahoma City had pulled within a game of league-leading Chicago by blowing out the Bulls a day earlier, but the Grizzlies took the lead just after halftime and hung on to snap the Thunder’s sixgame winning streak. Tony Allen added 15 points and Marc Gasol scored 13 for the Grizzlies, who were without starting point guard Mike Conley for a second straight game because of a sore right ankle. Kevin Durant led the Thunder with 21 points and Russell Westbrook scored 19, with 12 coming as Oklahoma City tried to rally in the fourth quarter.

MEMPHIS GRIZZLIES GUARD O.J. MAYO (32) PASSES OFF under the basket in front of Oklahoma City Thunder center Nick Collison in the first quarter on Monday in Oklahoma City. Rockets 99, Bulls 93 CHICAGO — Goran Dragic scored 21 points, Luis Scola added 18 points and 12 rebounds, and the Houston Rockets rallied to beat Chicago, giving the Bulls back-to-back losses for the first time this season. The Bulls had gone a franchise-record 86 regular-season games without dropping two in a row, second only to Utah’s 95game run in the late 1990s. But after getting mauled by Oklahoma City, they fell again for the second time in as many days, dropping a wild game that saw several major swings in momentum. The Rockets trailed by as much as 15 in the first half and were down 13 in the third, but they went on a 14-1 run to tie it at 62 late in the quarter, and then had a 17-2 burst in the final minute of the third to take an 84-72 lead. Chase Budinger chipped in with 13 points, hitting three big three-pointers early in the fourth.

over the Dallas Mavericks for their longest winning streak in two decades. Blake Griffin had 15 points and 16 rebounds for the Clippers, who last won six in a row in March 1992. After Brandon Wright’s tip-in capped an 8-0 run for the Mavericks to get within 76-62 with about 71⁄2 minutes left, Foye responded with a threepointer. Jason Terry then made another basket for Dallas, only to have Foy made another three, his eighth to match the franchise record. Dirk Nowitzki led Dallas with 19 points. L.A.

Dear Annie: I want to share a personal story that I decided to be very public about: I’m a recovering alcoholic. The irony of my situation is that I made a successful career out of writing about using alcohol to cope with the stresses of parenthood in books and in my Web column. Then one morning I woke up with the hangover from hell (I actually ended up in the emergency room), and that was literally the turning point: I got the message loud and clear that my life was a mess, and alcohol was making it that way. I remember when I “‘fessed up” to the readers of my blog, “Baby on Bored.” I was terrified that they’d think I was this enormous hypocrite. Instead, I got countless responses from women thanking me and recounting their own stories about their secret drinking. Thursday, April 5,

is National Alcohol Screening Day (NASD). Thousands of colleges, community-based organizations and military installations participate in NASD. One element of the day that people should know about is the free and anonymous screenings available online. The screenings help individuals assess whether they should take action to get a handle on their drinking. The screenings can be accessed anytime at Alcohol is a problem

PBS examines grand dam History is never really water under the bridge. Or over the dam. “American Experience: Grand Coulee Dam” (7 p.m., PBS) recalls 80-year-old conflicts and controversies that seem contemporary. What is the government’s role in stimulating the economy? What right does Washington, D.C., have to condemn and seize millions of acres, thousands of miles from the capital, for a project that many in private industry decried as a boondoggle? And how do you balance economic progress with environmental degradation? Back in 1933, the Roosevelt administration saw the massive public works project in Washington state as a way to employ thousands, tame the flood-prone Columbia River and provide electricity for millions. The dam would succeed in all of these goals, but at a tremendous cost to the environment, to Native American tribes and to those who made their living from salmon fishing. Finished in 1940, the dam’s dynamos powered airplane factories and shipyards vital to the war effort. Unbeknownst to the public at the time, the dam also powered a secret effort that would come to be known as the Manhattan Project. ‘‘Grand Coulee Dam” offers viewers a glimpse of how messy history can seem while it is being made. It recalls the popular celebration of the project in its time, most notably Woody Guthrie’s anthem “Roll On, Columbia,” and takes a long view of a massive undertaking, both its lofty goals and unintended consequences.

Gen. Wesley Clark hosts “Edge of War” (9 p.m., Military), offering a minute-by-minute look at major military decisions.

Tonight’s other highlights

Jimmy’s change in status on “Raising Hope” (7 p.m., Fox).

Results and elimination on “The Voice” (8 p.m., NBC).

CeCe’s secret irks Jess on “New Girl” (8 p.m., Fox).

Results on “Dancing With the Stars” (8 p.m., ABC).

The great department-store challenge on “Fashion Star” (9 p.m., NBC).

The virus spreads on “Body of Proof” (9 p.m., ABC).

Quayles evades Raylon on “Justified” (9 p.m., FX). Cult choice Some considered Jeffrey Hunter too dreamy-looking to carry the title role in the 1961 adaptation of “King of Kings” (9 p.m., TBN). Wags dubbed the movie “I Was a Teenage Jesus.”

for more people than one might think — including the “cocktail moms” I’ve written about. It’s a health issue that’s treatable, but it needs to be brought out into the open. Sincerely — Stefanie Wilder-Taylor Dear Stefanie WilderTaylor: Thank you for sharing your story and underscoring the importance of screening for alcoholism. Our readers have told us in heartbreaking letters how alcohol has destroyed their lives and those of their loved ones. Once again, those who wish to be screened can do so at Dear Annie: My daughter is getting married this summer, and my husband and I are upset about the informality of the groomsmen’s attire.

For Tuesday, April 3: Curb a tendency to focus on petty issues and to get caught up in them. Use your ability of critical discernment to improve the quality of your work, writing, projects and interactions. If you are single, you could meet someone with ease after spring. If you are attached, do not criticize your sweetie. You simply are in an overly critical phase. 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)  Curb your desire to prove yourself through finances and concrete results. Once in a while, with certain interpersonal relationships, this aspiration can only help. Tonight: Reveal your fiery side. Taurus (April 20-May 20)  You might have difficulty understanding some of the basics surrounding an important issue. If you detach, you will grasp the implications of a potential decision. Tonight: Brainstorm with a friend over munchies. Gemini (May 21-June 20)  Venus moves into your sign and graces you with gentleness and a newfound glow. These traits will stay with you for a little while. Keep your eye on a very important project. Tonight: At home. Cancer (June 21-July 22)  Express yourself clearly. You might notice that someone can be hurtful. It is more likely that you are oversensitive to this type of behavior. Tonight: Be a little more skeptical when meeting someone new. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)  A friend is a source of good news. Do not allow yourself to take a risk, even if this person

believes it is a sure bet. Tonight: Balance your checkbook. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)  You become revitalized. A boss or parent will notice your vibrancy. Tonight: As you like. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  You wake up with a strong game plan, only to see it quickly dissolve. This encourages you to demonstrate flexibility and consideration for others. Tonight: Take some much-needed downtime. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  You have been very aware of the politics of a decision. At this point, you decide which way to go — the winning side. Tonight: A force to be dealt with. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)  You might try to understand what someone is really saying, or the reasoning behind his or her statements. Think positively, yet be aware of a tendency to fall for deception at this time in your life. Tonight: Stay detached. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)  Think much and say little. You might be making too big a deal about a situation or conversation. Tonight: Indulge a little. Meet a friend after work. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  Deal directly with someone regarding an issue that involves you. You could see many issues arise that you thought were settled. Tonight: Chat with a friend over a favorite meal. Pisces (Feb. 21-March 20)  Others seem to need you, whether it is your feedback, moral support or simply an offer to pitch in. Tonight: Go with someone else’s suggestion. — The astrological forecast should be read for entertainment only.

GOING UP? By Jill Pepper


church wedding, and I have spent a lot of money on my daughter’s dress. My husband feels this shows a lack of respect for my daughter. What is the best way to handle this? — Bride’s Parents Dear Parents: If you are not footing the bill, you don’t have much say. Not to mention, this could be a way for the groomsmen to save money. If you are paying for everything, you should ask your daughter how she feels about it, and let her talk to her fiance. Otherwise, please stay out of it. What the groomsmen wear is of little importance to the rest of the day, and once they start dancing, the jackets and ties come off anyway. Creating ill-will before the wedding, however, will last a very long time. ACROSS — Send questions to, or Annie’s Mailbox, P.O. Box 118190 Chicago, IL 60611.
