Feed The Children delivered two semi tractor-trailers full of food and personal care items Wednesday to Douglas County’s food bank Just Food, where it was handed out between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. It was enough to help 800 families for a week. “It’s wonderful,” said Misty Williams, who found a friend to give her a ride to pick up a donation. The unemployed Lawrence resident has four children who are ages 13, 8, 7 and 3. “We appreciate the help.” Each family received a 25-pound box of food that contained staples such as peanut butter, jelly, pasta, spaghetti sauce, vegetables and fruit, and a 10-pound box of personal care items like soap, shampoo and sunblock. They also received two children’s books and a couple of bags of chocolate candy. Kimberly Stanford, a single mother of three children — ages 6, 5 and 3 — also was thankful for the donation. “It’s certainly going to help because I’m on

Drivers urged to use Turnpike storm shelters TOPEKA (AP) — State officials want to remind drivers that there are nearly 30 public tornado shelters along the Kansas Turnpike where motorists are encouraged to ride out dangerous weather. “Our biggest problem is getting people to do something safe,” said Lisa Callahan, a spokeswoman for the Kansas Turnpike Authority. “Mostly, people just want to keep driving.” The shelters are located in service areas and toll plazas along the 236-mile turnpike, which runs from Kansas City, Kan., to the Oklahoma border south of Wichita. Callahan said turnpike employees are reminded every year where the shelters are so they can take motorists there if necessary. New employees are given a tour of the shelters and are tested to make sure they can lift the lid to the entrance. Most of the shelters are

in the restrooms of the main buildings in the turnpike service areas. The turnpike has service areas in Belle Plaine, Towanda, Matfield Green, Emporia, Topeka and Lawrence. Most of the shelters are underground and are accessed by opening a hatch and climbing down a short ladder. At least 20 people can fit comfortably in the smallest shelters, and more if circumstances require it, Callahan said. The shelters at the turnpike’s toll plazas generally are smaller, she said. Every turnpike toll plaza has a tornado shelter except Tonganoxie/Eudora. They were built for the safety of the toll plaza workers, Callahan said, but motorists seeking shelter will be welcomed as well. There are no storm shelters along Interstate 70 or any highways controlled by the Kansas Department of Transportation, state officials said.

Just Food open house Just Food, Douglas County’s food bank, will have an open house from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday at its new Lawrence location, 1000 E. 11th St. A ribboncutting ceremony will be at 11:30 a.m., followed by a short program and tours. A light lunch will be provided. The event is open to the public. Last year, Just Food distributed $676,503 worth of food, or about 880,000 meals, for free to 84,699 people, a 21 percent increase from a year earlier. For more information about the event, call Just Food at 856-7030.

Response to nickel mystery called ‘absolutely incredible’ By Shaun Hittle

Sue Towns has been flooded with emails and calls after a Journal-World article on Sunday about how she is looking for her childhood hero. The retired Derby teacher might never get a definitive answer, but says it’s been a great experience. “I spent all day yesterday responding,” Towns said. “This has been an amazing ride. Hearing people’s positive responses about different individuals is quite heartwarming.” Towns has been trying to find a mystery man who used to give her a nickel every day as she walked from her house in the 400 block of Perry Street to school at Lincoln Elementary in Lawrence in 1957. Towns had little information about the man, other than he worked for the Union Pacific Railroad, which had a station house Towns would pass by on her walk to school. Towns had a rough family life, and would later be removed from her home. She thinks the man

Several people have responded to Towns following the story, with the names of men they think could be her mystery hero. Lawrence resident Robert Muzzy, who worked at Union Pacific in Lawrence in 1957, said he thinks the man is Jeff Tipton, who was a crossing watchman for the railroad. Muzzy said Tipton died in 1958. Muzzy was one of the pallbearers. Tipton was single and lived with a sister, who has also since died, Muzzy said. Muzzy, however, said he never Please see HERO, page 2A

be delivered (automated phone call, text message or email) and what kinds of severe weather they want to be notified about. Alerts are available for warnings and watches issued through the National Weather Service and include tornadoes, severe thunderstorms, blizzards, flash floods, fire weather, ice storms and winter storms. The system is already in place and being used internally by more than 700 of the county employees, emergency responders, health department officials and storm spotters. The alerts are part of a call notification system that was purchased by the Northeast Region Homeland Security Council several years ago and funded through federal grant money. It is available throughout the 23 counties in northeast Kansas. Douglas County has been using the system for about a year and a half, Smith said. The system can be used for more than just severe weather alerts. Before it was offered to the public, Smith said, the county wanted to troubleshoot problems and test its response time. Right now, users get an alert within five minutes of a warning being issued. Following the Harveyville tornado, the service was promot-


saw Tipton giving Towns a nickel, but it sounds like something Tipton would’ve done. “He was a good guy,” Muzzy said. Meanwhile, Towns has heard from several people who mention a man with the last name “Gulley,” whose first name was “Logan” or “Louie.” The Social Security Death Index lists a Llewellyn Gulley, who was born in 1929 and

ed throughout northeast Kansas, and several Douglas County residents have already signed up for it. But Douglas County officials didn’t want to start publicizing the tool without making sure the commissioners would be willing to continue paying for the service in the future. While the service doesn’t cost the county anything now, it could in the future. The contract between the Northeast Region Homeland Security Council and call notification system provider ends in 2014. Grant money coming to the council continues to decline, making it likely that the cost for the system would be passed onto the counties. “It’s the kind of service where once you have it, you can’t pull it,” County Administrator Craig Weinaug said. “I think you need to be aware that making a decision will cause a future impact.” The service currently costs about $1.50 per customer per year. So if the county had 30,000 people sign up it could run the county $45,000 a year. Even at that cost, commissioner Jim Flory said he thought the money would be well-spent. “Keeping citizens safe is paramount,” Flory said. “I understand it is a significant (amount of money), but $45,000 to do that doesn’t seem unreasonable.” — Reporter Christine Metz can be reached at 832-6352.

died in 1997. Towns said she may never be absolutely sure who the mystery man is, and she’s OK with that.

She’s also been contacted by a woman Towns thinks is a long-lost cousin. “It’s been absolutely incredible,” Towns said. — Reporter Shaun Hittle can be reached at 832-7173. Follow him at


Mistrial after photo sent from Kansas courtroom TOPEKA (AP) — A Kansas judge declared a mistrial in a murder trial Wednesday after a newspaper reporter tweeted a photo that included the grainy profile of a juror. The Shawnee County district attorney’s office said it plans to reschedule Austin Tabor’s trial for June or July after the abrupt halt to proceedings in Topeka one day after attorneys presented opening statements. “One of the photos apparently showed one or more of the jurors,” said Lee McGowan, spokesman for the district attorney’s office. “It was brought to the court’s attention and ultimately a mistrial was declared.” The Topeka CapitalJournal reports Tabor, 20, is accused of shooting and killing Matthew

Mitchell, 20, near Topeka West High School in 2010. McGowan said the judge had agreed to allow camera phones in the courtroom, but said no photos were to be taken of jurors. That corresponds with rules established by the Kansas Supreme Court for cameras in courtrooms, including that individual jurors are not to be photographed. “In courtrooms where photography is impossible without including the jury as part of the unavoidable background, the photography is permitted, but close-ups which identify individual jurors are not permitted,” the court has said. The picture, taken and tweeted by reporter Ann Marie Bush, includes the profile of a juror set against

Mother: Teen driving RV in crash a ‘hero’ MINNEAPOLIS, MINN. (AP) — The mother of a teenager who was driving an RV when it crashed in Kansas, killing five family members, described her son Wednesday as a hero. Pauline Kerber spoke in a prepared statement from the St. Paul hospital where Adam Kerber, 17, was being treated. He was listed in fair condition at Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare. His brother Nick, 8, was also in fair condition at Gillette. The crash happened April 1 on Interstate 35 near Williamsburg, Kan., when a recreational vehicle carrying members of the Kerber family and friends — 18 people in all — hit a guardrail and a concrete bridge rail. Five family members, ages 10 through 25, died in the crash. The RV was a Freightliner box truck that had

been converted to hold living quarters, and was towing a trailer as the family returned home from a motocross event in Texas. Adam Kerber was an aspiring motocross racer. “To me, Adam is a hero,” Pauline Kerber said in the statement. “He did everything he possibly could to save 13 lives.” The statement went on to ask for privacy and said the family wasn’t doing interviews. The Kansas Highway Patrol said Wednesday it continues to investigate the crash. The patrol said it has yet to download some computer data from the vehicle that could yield more information, and also needs to interview witnesses, including some of the injured. The National Transportation Safety Board is also reviewing the crash.


groups to provide food and other essentials to those in need. It provides about 350,000 meals per day, but mostly overseas. He said the Lawrence distribution is part of the agency’s Americans Feeding Americans Caravan program, which has helped more than 365,000 families since it began in 2009. “Many of these families considered themselves middle class just a few short years ago,” he said. “Now they are making hard choices between paying bills and feeding their families. With the help of our partner agencies, we can help make that choice a little easier.” Jeremy Farmer, executive director of Just Food, was grateful for the donation because he sees the need for food assistance every day. The pantry serves about 5,000 people per month, 40 percent of whom are children. “It’s growing, and it’s increasing. We are seeing just as many new families as we are seeing return families,” he said. “The people that we deal with are a pink slip, an accident, an illness away from needing these services.” Just Food and Ballard Community Services, which provides an early

Judge denies request by ex-KU official WICHITA — A former Kansas University athletics official convicted in a ticket scandal has lost an effort to have his probation cut short. Brandon Simmons was director of sales and marketing in the athletics department. He pleaded guilty to failing to tell authorities about the $2 million scalping scandal and was sentenced in March 2011 to two years’ probation. U.S. District Judge Monti Belot on Wednesday rejected Simmons’ request to terminate the probation early. Simmons has paid nearly $26,000 so far of a $157,000 restitution order. Belot followed the probation office’s recommendation to continue the probation to ensure Simmons continues to make payments. Simmons was among seven Kansas athletics officials convicted in the unlawful sale of Jayhawk football and basketball season tickets to ticket brokers and others.

We are seeing just as many new families as we are seeing return families. The people that we deal with are a pink slip, an accident, an illness away from needing these services.” — Jeremy Farmer, executive director of Just Food education program and life assistance for lowincome residents, teamed up to organize the event with Feed The Children. They recruited about 50 volunteers and contacted partner agencies in Douglas County. They targeted families with children whose income was at or below 135 percent of the federal poverty level. That’s a yearly income of $20,426 for a family of two or $31,118 for four. Dianne Ensminger, president and CEO of Ballard Community Services, was thrilled that Feed the Children decided to partner with them again. The last time was in 2003, and they were able to help 300 families. Ensminger said she sees children who are hungry every day. “First thing in the morning when they come in and get that food, you can see the change in their energy level and abilities,” she said. Her nonprofit agency provides two meals and a snack every day, but sometimes, she said, it’s not enough, so they send food home in backpacks. “Families are afraid to

Brownback says public scared, ready for change By Scott Rothschild

TOPEKA — Gov. Sam Brownback says a scared public is ready to embrace change, such as his proposed overhaul of the Kansas tax code. Participating on a tax discussion panel Tuesday in New York, Brownback said people want “bold solutions.” He said, “The public is scared now. They are scared for the future of their country.” The nine-member panel hosted by the George W. Bush Presidential Center consisted of conservative economists and Fox television’s John Stossel. Stossel said that maybe Kansans were scared but New York’s Upper West Side wasn’t. But James Glassman, founding executive director of the Center’s Bush Institute, and facilitator of the discussion, borrowed Brownback’s words in his closing remarks, saying that perhaps the time was ripe for bold policy solutions. The title of the discussion was “Tax policies for 4 percent growth: Blitz solutions.” It was streamed live on the Internet.

Governor pushes tax plan in panel discussion Brownback, the only elected official on the panel, used the platform to push for his tax-cutBrownback ting proposals before the Kansas Legislature. Brownback, a Republican, has proposed phasing out the state income tax and removing taxes on income for nearly 200,000 businesses, including sole proprietor, partner or Subchapter-S corporations. His plan would keep in place the 6.3 percent state sales tax, which under current law is set to decrease to 5.7 percent in 2013, and remove numerous deductions and tax credits. Democrats and some Republicans have opposed the proposal, saying it would take revenue away from education, social services and public safety. They have proposed a lowercost plan aimed at reducing property taxes.

The House and Senate have both approved measures that reduce tax rates and eliminate the income tax for some businesses. Negotiators are expected to work on a compromise later this month when the Legislature reconvenes. “I’m hopeful we can get it through,” Brownback said. Brownback said his overhaul was needed to make Kansas more competitive. “I’m tired of getting beat by Texas,” he said. During the discussion, Brownback also said cutting state spending was also critical, and he defended his veto last year of state funding for the arts. While in New York, Brownback and Kansas Commerce Secretary Pat George also met with several Fortune 500 businesses interested in doing business in Kansas, the governor’s office said. — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

Ag secretary touts Obama’s ‘all-of-the-above’ approach By Scott Rothschild

TOPEKA — A $5 million payment from the federal government to a western Kansas ethanol plant is an example of President Barack Obama’s commitment to energy and rural development, U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said Wednesday. “That is just one of the great strategies that we are engaged in,” Vilsack said in a telephone interview with the Lawrence Journal-World. The funds from the U.S. Department of Agriculture will go toward construction of a biogas anaerobic digester at Western Plains Energy in Oakley. Animal waste from a feedlot will be used to produce the heat needed to process ethanol. It is expected to create 15 permanent jobs and nearly 100 construction jobs. Vilsack, former governor of Iowa, said the proj-

ect is part of Obama’s “all-of-theabove” approach to developing energy. For the first time in 13 years, Vilsack imported oil accounts for less than half of the oil consumed in the United States, Vilsack said. He said that is because the U.S. is producing more energy, using more alternative fuels and increasing efficiency through such strategies as doubling vehicle fuel economy standards over the decade. Vilsack said he understands that people are frustrated with high gasoline prices, but he blamed that on the increasing energy demands of China and India, and political tensions in the Middle East. “That’s why it is impor-

tant to focus on alternatives,” he said. He said the Obama administration does not often get credit for expanding development of domestic energy sources. Part of the reason for that, he said, was the political criticism that fell on the administration when it delayed the controversial 1,700-mile Keystone XL pipeline that runs from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico. Republicans blasted Obama for the delay, saying it was costing the United States jobs. But Obama had said lawmakers failed to give his administration enough time to review health and safety concerns with the project. Obama has since directed federal agencies to fast-track a 485-mile segment of the line from Cushing, Okla., to refineries on the Gulf Coast. — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

Companies leaving group with deep ties to Kansas Legislature By Scott Rothschild

TOPEKA — A handful of major corporations recently announced they have dropped their memberships in the American Legislative Exchange Council, a group that promotes “model” legislation for conservative legislators and has strong ties to the Kansas Legislature. The decision by CocaCola, Pepsi, Intuit, Kraft and McDonald’s to leave ALEC comes as ALEC has been under fire from civil rights and government watchdog groups for pushing voter ID laws and the so-called “stand your ground” law that has been cited in the controversial slaying of a Florida teenager. In addition, The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has said it will not award any more grants to ALEC. “Sunlight is the best disinfectant, and we will continue to educate the public about ALEC’s agenda, and highlight the influence of corporate money in our state laws and public policies,” said Bob Edgar, president of Common Cause, a citizens lobbying organization. The civil rights group ColorOfChange has also called on companies to separate from ALEC. On Wednesday, Ron Scheberle, executive director of ALEC, struck back. “Today, we find ourselves the focus of a wellfunded, expertly coordinated intimidation campaign,” Scheberle said. “At a time when job creation, real solutions and improved dialogue among political leaders is needed most, ALEC’s mission has never been more important. This is why we are redoubling our commitment to these essential priorities.” Common Cause said they weren’t surprised ALEC “would call the free exercise of democracy an ‘intimidation campaign.’” ALEC describes its mis-

sion as advancing free markets, limited government, federalism and individual liberty. The group includes legislators and representatives of corporate interests that produce “model legislation.” Last year, the Center for Media and Democracy released a report that described ALEC, which enjoys tax-exempt status as a nonprofit, as a public policy front for corporate interests, including Kansas-based Koch Industries, which helps fund ALEC. In Kansas, a healthy contingent of legislators have been active in ALEC for years, going to its meetings, serving in leadership positions on its board and returning to Kansas with model legislation that they then start pushing through the legislative process. Twenty-three Kansas legislators, all Republicans, attended the last annual ALEC meeting where they received information on defeating federal health reform, expanding charter schools and lowering business taxes. Shortly after the ALEC meeting in New Orleans last August, Gov. Sam Brownback rejected a $31.5 million federal grant, which he had earlier accepted, to establish a health insurance exchange system. The exchange is a key part of President Barack Obama’s health care proposal. Another ALEC connection to Kansas lawmaking is Art Laffer, who serves on ALEC’s Board of Scholars. Laffer, an economist, was paid $75,000 by the Brownback administration as a consultant for Brownback’s proposed plan to phase out the state income tax and eliminate taxes for nearly 200,000 businesses. That proposal is currently being considered by the Legislature. — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

$60,000 raised by St. Patrick’s activities donated to agencies By Shaun Hittle

Typically, tiny-K Early Intervention doesn’t have enough money to buy adaptive equipment, such as walkers, for the specialneeds infants and toddlers the nonprofit serves in Douglas County. But thanks to the 2012 Lawrence St. Patrick’s Day Parade, they’ll be making some purchases soon. “We’re putting it to good use,” said Dena Bracciano, tiny-K director, who accepted a $5,000 check from the parade committee Tuesday. The committee donated a total of $60,000 raised during the parade and other associated activities. The funds were distributed to:

Earth Day celebration to show off ways to help environment ————

A statewide courtemployee furlough this Friday will cause most Douglas County District Court offices to close, but some court services will still function. Judges will still be on the job, as will court staff who are paid through the county, Court Administrator Linda Koester-Vogelsang said. She said judges have continued all of the cases scheduled for Friday that they can. Anyone who has a court date scheduled COURTS for Friday and has not been notified should still appear in court or call the court trustee’s office, 8325315, that day to check. Traffic and limited civil action answer dockets will continue as scheduled Friday, as will the docket of petitions for protection from abuse and protection from stalking orders. Anyone seeking to file a protection from abuse or stalking request that day should complete paperwork in the court trustee’s office on the first floor of the judicial center, 111 E. 11th St. The district court clerk’s office will be closed Friday, so people will not be able to pick up marriage licenses, pay traffic fines, file legal actions or conduct other business at the clerk’s office. Anyone with an appointment with a community corrections officer should attend the appointment as scheduled, and probationers who have appointments with court services officers Friday will need to reschedule them. The Kansas Supreme Court last week ordered five furlough dates for 1,500 court employees statewide because the House and Senate have not yet approved a supplemental budget that included $1.4 million needed by the judicial system to make payroll through June 30. In addition to this Friday, furlough days will be April 27, May 11, May 25 and June 8.

Parade co-chair Gene Shaughnessy said choosing agencies to donate funding to every year is difficult. In the past, the parade committee has donated to three or four agencies but expanded this year after presentations by the nonprofits. “The six agencies this

year were so compelling,” Shaughnessy said. After months of hard work raising money and organizing the parade, Shaughnessy said it’s time to take a little breath and relax for a few months. “Then we’re right back at it,” Shaughnessy said. — Reporter Shaun Hittle can be reached at 832-7173.

The Lawrence Earth Day Celebration will be greener than usual this year. Along with the popular vegan picnic, environmentally minded vendors and free public transit, Saturday’s event at South Park will offer a composting area, where food scraps will be collected and taken to the city of Lawrence’s composting facility. Recycling bins will also be in place. “It’s something that we haven’t been able to do before,” said Cassandra Ford, a waste reduction and recycling specialist for the city of Lawrence. “Hopefully we will reduce our wastes for the event.” In its 12th year, the event will have more than 60 exhibitors and include family-friendly activities, live music and food vendors. Ripple Glass representatives will be on hand to talk about the new glass

recycling containers scattered throughout the city, Operation WildLife will have some of its rescued birds on display, and Moser LLC will be using its innovative generator that is powered by portable solar panels. The fair will also feature the popular free, vegan picnic sponsored by Animal Outreach of Kansas. “We’ve got a lot of different people and organizations that all come at it from their own standpoint. But they all have a very uniform message of what you can do and how you can have a good impact on the environment,” Ford said. On Saturday, the celebration begins with an Earth Day Parade at 11 a.m. The parade travels east from Watson Park on Seventh Street, then down Massachusetts Street all the way to South Park.

When the parade arrives at South Park, which will be about 11:30 a.m., the celebration begins. From 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., vendors will be set up to share information about waste reduction, recycling, composting, alternative fuels and vehicles, energy conservation and land, wildlife and habitat preservation. The Douglas County Water Festival will also be present with interactive and educational activities that emphasize the importance of clean water. At 12:30 p.m., 1:30 p.m. and 2:30 p.m., forestry staff from the Parks and Recreation Department will lead a tree identification tour. In honor of Earth Day, the Lawrence Transit System will offer free rides on the T all day Saturday. — Reporter Christine Metz can be reached at 832-6352.

After the top official at Kansas University Medical Center announced she will leave her position earlier than previously thought, university leaders are beginning to identify how the search for KANSAS her replaceUNIVERSITY ment will be conducted. Barbara Atkinson, executive dean of the KU School of Medicine and executive vice chancellor of KUMC, will step down June 30, 18 months ahead of her previously announced timetable. An already-formed search committee for the medical dean position will also look for candidates for the executive vice chancellor, and will be restructured to pursue that recruitment. Edward Ellerbeck, a KUMC professor and the committee’s chairman, said several of its dean candidates could also be a good fit for the executive vice chancellor position. KU Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little has indicated a desire to separate the two roles. Steven Stites, KUMC’s interim leader and chairman of its internal medicine department, said in a message to campus that he will not be a candidate for the permanent position.

Douglas County prosecutors have filed an attempted intentional second-degree murder charge against a 27-yearold Lawrence man, accusing him of shooting another man on Michigan Way early on April 1. According to court records, District Attorney Charles Branson charged

Jesse Mactagone, of Auburn, Calif., is among seven students whose families sued St. John’s Military School last month. They claim the school allowed and encouraged older students, called “Disciplinarians,” to discipline younger ones by beating and otherwise abusing them, including in the presence of faculty members. The plaintiffs come from California, Florida, Tennessee, Colorado, Texas and Illinois.

ENFORCEMENT REPORT • Five city-owned light poles in the 1100 block of Tennessee Street were damaged between 10 p.m. April 2 and 6 a.m. April 3, according to police reports. The loss was estimated at $3,200. • $1,350 worth of damage to Kentucky street signs near 14th Street occurred about 11 p.m. April 2, according to police reports. • A 63-year-old Forsyth, Mo., woman reported $2,221 worth of jewelry and other items stolen from the

gation into the shooting. Lawrence police said the victim, a 22-year-old Lawrence man, was found injured about 3:30 a.m. outside apartments in the 1300 block of Michigan Way. 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. The victim, whose home address is not in the apartment complex, was first 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. Prosecutors said a judge on Wednesday set Verner’s bond at $75,000 cash or surety, appointed Lawrence attorney James Rumsey to defend him and scheduled his next hearing for April 18. According to jail records, Verner turned himself in to the Douglas County Jail at 6 a.m. Wednesday, and he was also booked on four outstanding traffic warrants.

2-vehicle accident sends woman to LMH A Lecompton woman was taken to Lawrence Memorial Hospital early Wednesday after a twovehicle accident in northwestern Douglas County, Undersheriff Steve Hornberger said. Sheriff’s officers determined 18-year-old Austin Kelley, of Lecompton, fell asleep about 1 a.m. while driving north on County Road 1029 just south of Lecompton. Hornberger said her vehicle went into the west ditch. She woke up as she tried to regain control of the vehicle; it hit a road sign and sideswiped a vehicle headed south.

St. John’s has settled nine other abuse lawsuits since 2006. The comment from SRS comes in the wake of a court filing last week in response to the lawsuit in which the school claimed that SRS and Salina Police Department “investigated and found no validity” to allegations that Jesse’s injuries were the result of cadets beating and kicking him. The school told the court all investigations into the matter concluded the boy was not hurt by fellow cadets. Saline County Attorney Ellen Mitchell told AP that the Salina Police Department asked her office to review Jesse’s alleged beatings for possible criminal prosecution. No arrests were made, and no

vehicle, Lauren Times, 21, of Lecompton, was taken to LMH for precautionary measures, the undersheriff said. Times’ two passengers were not injured. Times was treated and released from LMH, said Belinda Rehmer, a hospital spokeswoman. There was no evidence she was impaired, but officers cited Kelley for transporting an open container in her vehicle and driving left of the center line, Hornberger said.

Boy on bicycle struck by vehicle near school A 10-year-old boy was taken to Lawrence Memorial Hospital by ambulance Wednesday morning after he was struck by a vehicle while riding his bike, police said. Sgt. Trent McKinley, a Lawrence police spokesman, said officers determined a 27-yearold woman driving a vehicle at 7:37 a.m. had stopped at a stop sign at the intersection of Ranger Drive and Rockfence Place, which is southwest of Princeton Boulevard and Lawrence Avenue and near Deerfield School. “The driver, however, did not see the 10-year-old bicyclist approaching on the cross street as she entered the intersection,” McKinley said. “The car struck the bicyclist, causing him to fall.” The boy, Matthew Bradenburger, was wearing a helmet, McKinley said. Matthew was treated and later released from the hospital, said Belinda Rehmer, an LMH spokeswoman. McKinley said officers cited the driver of the car, Desiree Neyens, for a stop sign violation because she failed to yield to the boy before proceeding from the stop. Julie Boyle, a Lawrence school district spokeswoman, said the boy is a fourthgrade student at Deerfield.

charges filed. “There was insufficient evidence to show that a crime was committed beyond a reasonable doubt,” Mitchell said in a phone interview Wednesday. Daniel Zmijewski, an attorney for the plaintiffs, said he had no knowledge of the SRS investigation. He wouldn’t comment on de Rocha’s statement about the probe. The lawyer noted that the standard needed for criminal prosecutions is higher than that required for civil cases. “St. John’s stands behind its response as stated and will be making no ad-

ditional comment beyond what is stated in the filing, at this time,” the school’s spokeswoman, Laurie Roberts, said in an email. The Episcopal boarding school, which charges families nearly $30,000 per year for students enrolled in grades 6-12, draws students from across the nation. The 14-year-old’s injuries are among some of the most egregious alleged in the lawsuit. An X-ray of one of the boy’s broken legs, included in the court filing, shows his right femur bone as being displaced several inches below the knee.

Romney skews case on women’s jobs

BRIEFLY Syria says it will stop fighting BEIRUT — Syria promised to comply with a U.N.-brokered cease-fire beginning today but carved out an important condition — that the regime still has a right to defend itself against the terrorists that it says are behind the country’s year-old uprising. The statement Wednesday offered a glimmer of hope that a peace initiative by special envoy Kofi Annan could help calm the conflict, which has killed some 9,000 people. But the regime still has ample room to maneuver. In comments carried on the state-run news agency, Syria said the army has successfully fought off “armed terrorist groups” and reasserted state authority across the country. The government denies that it is facing an uprising by Syrians who want to dislodge the authoritarian family dynasty that has ruled the country for more than four decades.

By Calvin Woodward Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Mitt Romney has come up with an “amazing statistic” and Republicans inside and outside his presidential campaign are doing their utmost to spread it around: “92.3 percent of all the jobs lost during the Obama years have been lost by women.” Amazing it may be. As a meaningful measure of Obama’s economic record and its effect on women, though, it is dubious at best. Romney’s math is solid as far as it goes. But more men than women have lost jobs since the recession began — that’s why economists called it a “man-cession.” In blaming Obama for “turning the clock back 20 years on American women,” as the Romney campaign puts it, Republicans are hoping to counter Prison panel denies Obama’s perceived advanwith female voters.

Bush left the White House hit men harder than women at the beginning. Recessions often do that because maledominated enterprises such as construction and manufacturing tend to be the first to tumble in a downturn. Eventually, sectors with more women in the work force follow suit, and that happened mostly after Obama took office. In the recession that began in December 2007 and ended in June 2009 — with high unemployment lingering to this day — the crisis in the financial sector and bursting of the housing bubble accentuated the damage to jobs held primarily by men. “The initial losses were even more male-dominated than normal because of the nature of the recession,” Swonk said. Women were more heavily represented in jobs that suffered in the recession’s later months and beyond, as revenuestrapped state and local governments laid off teachers and cut other public-sector workers. Romney’s claim is based on statistics showing the number of unemployed women grew by 858,000 since January 2009, Obama’s inauguration month. But it ignores the disproportionate hit on men the year before Obama became president — and their greater job losses overall. Some 3.4 million men and 1.8 million women have lost jobs since the recession started, according to the government.


Murder charge brought in Trayvon Martin case By Brendan Farrington and Gary Fineout Associated Press

JACKSONVILLE, FLA. — Amid furious public pressure to make an arrest in the killing of Trayvon Martin, the special prosecutor on the case went for the maximum Wednesday, bringing a second-degree murder charge against the neighborhood watch volunteer who shot the unarmed black teenager. George Zimmerman, 28, was jailed in Sanford — the site of the shooting Feb. 26 that set off a nationwide debate over racial profiling and selfdefense — on charges that carry a minimum of 25 years in prison and a maximum sentence that could put him in prison for life. In announcing the arrest, prosecutor Angela Corey would not discuss how she reconciled the conflicting accounts of what happened or explain how she arrived at the charges, saying too much information had been made public already. But she made it clear she was not influenced by the uproar over the past six weeks.

THIS COMBINATION made from file photos shows Trayvon Martin, left, and George Zimmerman. Zimmerman was jailed Wednesday on charges of second-degree murder for the Feb. 26 shooting death of Martin. “We do not prosecute by public pressure or by petition. We prosecute based on the facts on any given case as well as the laws of the state of Florida,” Corey said. Martin’s parents, who were in Washington when the announcement came, expressed relief over the decision to prosecute the killer of their 17-year-old son. “The question I would really like to ask him is, if he could look into Trayvon’s eyes and see how innocent he was, would he have then pulled the trigger? Or would he have just

let him go on home?” said his father, Tracy Martin. Many legal experts had expected the prosecutor to opt for the lesser charge of manslaughter, which usually carries 15 years behind bars and covers reckless or negligent killings, rather than second-degree murder, which involves a killing that results from a “depraved” disregard for human life. The most severe homicide charge, first-degree murder, is subject to the death penalty in Florida and requires premeditation — something that all sides agreed was not present in this case. “I predicted manslaughter, so I’m a little surprised,” said Michael Seigel, a former federal prosecutor who now teaches law at the University of Florida. “But she has more facts than I do.” Zimmerman’s new attorney, Mark O’Mara, said Zimmerman will plead not guilty and will invoke Florida’s powerful “stand your ground” law, which gives people wide leeway to use deadly force without having to retreat in the face of danger.

U.S. sues to lower prices of e-books The government says avid best-seller readers who use electronic books have been getting ripped off. Tina Fey’s “Bossy Pants,” Tim Tebow’s “Through My Eyes” and Keith Richards’ “‘Life” — maybe they should have cost less. The Justice Department and 15 states sued Apple Inc. and major book publishers Wednesday, alleging a conspiracy that raised the price of electronic books. They said the scheme cost consumers more than $100 million in the past two years by adding $2 or $3, sometimes as much as $5, to the price of each e-book. If there was price fixing, even the e-book version of the hot-selling Walter Isaacson biography of Steve Jobs, the late genius behind Apple computers, may have cost too much. Attorney General Eric

Holder said executives at the highest levels of the companies conspired to eliminate competition among e-book sellers. Justice’s antitrust chief, Sharis Pozen, said the executives were desperate to get, the marketer of Kindle e-book readers, to raise the $9.99 price point it had set for the most popular e-book titles, because that was substantially below their hardcover prices. The federal government reached a settlement with three of the publishers, Hachette, HarperCollins and Simon & Shuster. But it will proceed with its lawsuit in federal court in New York City against Apple and Holtzbrinck Publishers, doing business as Macmillan, and The Penguin Publishing Co. Ltd., doing business as Penguin Group.

DUI deterrent Devices that keep people from drinking and driving may be having a positive impact on the number of alcohol-related accidents in Kansas.


t’s one thing to tell someone who has been convicted of driving under the influence that he or she can’t drive. It’s an entirely different thing to physically prevent that person from starting the car when he or she has consumed alcoholic beverages. That’s why it only makes sense that a new Kansas law that requires first-time DUI offenders to install ignition interlocks on their cars would have a positive effect on the number of alcohol-related accidents reported in the state. A decrease in alcohol-related traffic accidents and fatalities always is good news. State officials reported a 12 percent drop in alcohol-related accidents: from 2,801 in 2010 to 2,463 in 2011. There was an even more dramatic drop in fatal accidents involving alcohol: from 138 in 2010 to 76 in 2011, a decline of about 45 percent. Officials aren’t ready to say that the new ignition interlock law, which went into effect on July 1, 2011, was the primary reason for the decline. They say intense news coverage of the new DUI law and a statewide effort to crack down on drunken driving probably also helped drive the number of incidents down. Nonetheless, common sense tells us the ignition interlocks would be a strong contributing factor. Suspending a person’s driver’s license doesn’t keep that person from driving. In far too many cases over the years, serious alcohol-related accidents have involved impaired drivers with previous DUI convictions. Many of those people were driving without valid driver’s licenses, but that didn’t keep them from getting behind the wheel. Having to use an ignition interlock device that measures their blood-alcohol content before allowing them to start their cars creates a physical impediment to such drivers. Most states have ignition interlock laws, but Kansas is one of just 15 states that has such a law for first-time DUI offenders. Drivers convicted of a DUI must apply for modified licenses that allow them to drive only cars equipped with an ignition interlock and present proof that such a device has been installed in their cars, at their expense. According to the Kansas Department of Revenue, nearly 3,000 Kansas drivers had applied for such licenses from July 1, 2011, through March 2, 2012. First-time offenders must use the interlock device for a year. It’s certainly possible for drivers to evade the law by driving an unmonitored vehicle, but stiffer DUI penalties that also went into effect last July — including fines, license suspensions, jail time and possible felony convictions for repeat offenders — provide added incentive not to drink and then drive. As state officials noted, it’s too soon to know whether the ignition interlock provision should get the credit for the decline in alcohol-related accidents or is just part of an overall successful strategy in the state. Either way, the decline in alcohol-related accidents and deaths is good news for Kansas. LAWRENCE

Drug legalization has pros, cons WASHINGTON — Amelioration of today’s drug problem requires Americans to understand the significance of the 80/20 ratio. Twenty percent of American drinkers consume 80 percent of the alcohol sold here. The same 80/20 split obtains among users of illicit drugs. About 3 million people — less than 1 percent of America’s population — consume 80 percent of illegal hard drugs. Drug trafficking organizations can be most efficiently injured by changing the behavior of the 20 percent of heavy users, and we are learning how to do so. Reducing consumption by the 80 percent of casual users will not substantially reduce the northward flow of drugs or the southward flow of money. Consider current policy concerning the only addictive intoxicant currently available as a consumer good — alcohol. America’s alcohol industry, which is as dependent on the 20 percent of heavy drinkers as they are on alcohol, markets its products aggressively, and effectively. Because marketing can drive consumption, America’s distillers, brewers and vintners spend $6 billion on advertising and promoting their products. Americans’ experience with marketing’s power inclines them to favor prohibition and enforcement over legalization and marketing of drugs. But this choice has consequences: More Americans are imprisoned for drug offenses or drug-related probation and parole violations than for property crimes.

George Will

Would the public health problems resulting from legalization be a price worth paying for injuring the cartels and reducing the costs of enforcement?” And although America spends five times more jailing drug dealers than it did 30 years ago, the prices of cocaine and heroin are 80 percent to 90 percent lower than 30 years ago. In “Drugs and Drug Policy: What Everyone Needs to Know,” policy analysts Mark Kleiman, Jonathan Caulkins and Angela Hawken argue that imprisoning low-ranking, street-corner dealers is pointless: A $200 transaction can cost society $100,000 for a three-year sentence. And imprisoning large numbers of dealers produces an army of people who, emerging from prison with blighted employment prospects, can only deal drugs. Which is why, although a few years ago Washington, D.C., dealers earned an average of $30 an hour, today they earn less

than the federal minimum wage ($7.25). Dealers, aka “pushers,” have almost nothing to do with initiating drug use by future addicts; almost every user starts when given drugs by a friend, sibling or acquaintance. There is a staggering disparity between the trivial sums earned by dealers who connect the cartels to the cartels’ customers, and the huge sums trying to slow the flow of drugs to those street-level dealers. Kleiman, Caulkins and Hawken say that in developed nations, cocaine sells for about $3,000 per ounce — almost twice the price of gold. And the supply of cocaine, unlike that of gold, can be cheaply and quickly expanded. But in the countries where cocaine and heroin are produced, they sell for about 1 percent of their retail price in America. If cocaine were legalized, a $2,000 kilogram could be FedExed from Colombia for less than $50 and sold profitably in America for a small markup from its price in Colombia, and a $5 rock of crack might cost 25 cents. Criminalization drives the cost of the smuggled kilogram in America up to $20,000. But then it retails for more than $100,000. People used to believe enforcement could raise prices but doubted that higher prices would decrease consumption. Now they know consumption declines as prices rise but wonder whether enforcement can substantially affect prices. They urge rethinking the drug-control triad of en-

forcement, prevention and treatment because we have been much too optimistic about all three. And cartels have oceans of money for corrupting enforcement because drugs are so cheap to produce and easy to renew. So it is not unreasonable to consider modifying a policy that gives hundreds of billions of dollars a year to violent organized crime. Marijuana probably provides less than 25 percent of the cartels’ revenues. Legalizing it would take perhaps $10 billion from some bad and violent people, but the cartels would still make much more money from cocaine, heroin and methamphetamines than they would lose from marijuana legalization. Sixteen states and the District of Columbia have legalized “medical marijuana,” a messy, mendacious semilegalization that breeds cynicism regarding law. In 1990, 24 percent of Americans supported full legalization. Today, 50 percent do. In 2010, in California, where one-eighth of Americans live, 46 percent of voters supported legalization, and some opponents were marijuana growers who like the profits they make from prohibition of their product. Would the public health problems resulting from legalization be a price worth paying for injuring the cartels and reducing the costs of enforcement? We probably are going to find out. — George Will is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.



From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for April 12, 1912: YEARS “According to the AGO report and enIN 1912 dorsement made yesterday afternoon before the club women of Lawrence by Mrs. E. L. Griffin, chairman of the committee of the Consumer’s League, every effort will be made to have all stores in Lawrence where a large number of persons are employed close one half day a week during the hot weather.... The plan is to have one afternoon every week for the employees of the stores to use for themselves doing whatever they please. In the large cities many of the stores have a plan whereby they close early afternoons while the weather is hot.” — Compiled by Sarah St. John

Truth too often goes unspoken Barack Obama himself has never had the guts to say it. Indeed, while it is famously difficult to prove a negative, it seems apparent that few people in all of politics and media have had the guts to say it. Did John McCain ever say it? Did Rick Santorum or Bill O’Reilly? So let us plant a little flag for, mark with a yellow highlighter, the thing Rep. Raul Labrador said Sunday on “Meet the Press”: that “it wouldn’t matter” if President Obama were a Muslim. And if it seems rather much to be handing out medals for such a modest statement of principle, well ... the principle has been under fire for so long that even a modest statement feels momentous. In recent years, public figures have made news for refuting (like McCain) or failing to refute (like Santorum) the canard that Obama is a follower of Islam. But outside of Colin Powell, who did so a few years back on “Meet the Press,” it is difficult to think of many — or any — who have dared to confront the notion implicit in the lie. Namely, that being a Muslim is incompatible with being an American. This is taken by some as self-evident truth even as Muslim soldiers risk their lives on our battlefields, Mus-

Leonard Pitts Jr.

It is a shameful truth of American history that there has never been a shortage of someones to fear, nor of those who were willing to maximize and exploit that fear.”

lim cops risk their lives on our streets, Muslim teachers teach our children, Muslim reporters report our news, Muslim politicians help to make our laws, and MuslimAmericans struggle against those who believe our sacred ideals cover other people, but not them. Thus, a fleeting statement that should have been obvious to the point of mundanity feels instead like a water station in the Mojave. Labrador is no fan of the president’s. His comment about Islam was made en route to a contention that

Obama’s policies have “weakened” the nation. Labrador is a Republican and a conservative from a very Republican and conservative state, Idaho. It is his political and ideological kin who are most responsible for pushing — and believing — the Obama-as-Muslim narrative. All of which imbues his remark with a welcome patina of political courage and moral clarity. Perhaps he would agree that what has historically weakened this nation at least as much as any policy the president has ever pursued is the tiresome notion that some of us are more American than the rest of us, that the “all” in “all men are created equal” refers only to those of the right gender, genus, sexual or political orientation, or faith. It is an idea abhorrent to the aforementioned sacred ideals, yet one embraced eagerly in recent years by those who apparently feel bereft without someone to fear. It is a shameful truth of American history that there has never been a shortage of someones to fear, nor of those who were willing to maximize and exploit that fear. It is an equally shameful truth that Americans, in thrall to that fear, have committed grievous sins against both human rights

and those sacred ideals. And always, it begins with some false, implicit truth, some lie that gains such a foothold in the popular imagination, that becomes so pervasive and persuasive, no one even questions it anymore. Some, because they don’t think to; others, because they don’t dare to. So someone says the German-Americans are traitors and let’s string that one up — and no one says a thing. Someone says the Japanese-Americans are spies and let’s imprison them all behind barbed wire — and no one raises a cry. And someone says all the Muslims are terrorists and we must rid our nation of them by any means necessary — and one hears only the arias of the crickets. It is in those complicit silences that we lose ourselves, that we betray our ideals and that mobs are born. So there is nothing modest about even a modest statement of principle. And one cannot help but be glad Labrador, being what he is, said what he said. It’s about time someone did. — Leonard Pitts Jr. is a columnist for the Miami Herald.

NCAA places Baylor basketball on probation for three years Besides keeping Mulkey off the recruiting trail in July, Baylor said one of her assistants has been barred from making recruiting calls from January through April. The school also reduced its women’s basketball scholarships from 15 to 13 in 2011-12. On the men’s side, Drew will miss the first two Big 12 games of the season, recruiting visits were trimmed and he lost a scholarship this past season and in 2012-13. In addition, a former coach faces a one-year “show cause” order that effectively prevents him from coaching at an NCAA school. The assistant wasn’t identified, but reported in October 2010 that the NCAA was investigating the recruitment of Hanner Perea. The report said assistant Mark Morefield sent dozens of texts to Perea’s AAU and high school coaches and urged two of them to provide false and misleading information to the NCAA about a series of text messages. Morefield resigned in July 2011.




WACO, TEXAS — The NCAA put Baylor on three years of probation Wednesday after an investigation turned up hundreds of impermissible telephone calls and text messages sent to prep recruits by coaches and assistants on the basketball teams. The violations were considered to be major infractions, and they were announced less than a week after the Lady Bears won the national championship with the first 40-0 season in NCAA history. Still, it could have been much worse for Baylor. All of the penalties were proposed by the school and accepted by the NCAA after a review of nearly 900,000 phone and text message records found that 738 texts and 528 calls were against the rules. The NCAA said men’s coach Scott Drew failed to monitor his program and will be suspended for two Big 12 games next season, in addition to recruiting restrictions. Women’s coach Kim Mulkey also received recruiting restrictions.



Source: CSU taps Eustachy Larry Eustachy is set to take over as Colorado State’s basketball coach, according to a person familiar with the decision. The person spoke to the Associated Press on the condition of anonymity, because the deal is only agreed upon and not finalized. The embattled coach takes over for Tim Miles, who left for Nebraska last month after leading the Rams to the NCAA Tournament.

Baylor’s Miller staying WACO, TEXAS — Quincy Miller has decided to stay at Baylor to play his sophomore season. Miller, one of the Big 12’s top freshmen last season, announced his decision Tuesday.

KU softball sweeps WSU J-W Staff Reports

John Young/Journal-World Photo

KANSAS’ MAGGIE HULL SLIDES HEAD-FIRST past Wichita State catcher Brianne Bond for a run during the first game of a doubleheader. KU took two from WSU on Wednesday at Arrocha Ballpark.

Two big innings carried Kansas University’s softball team to a doubleheader sweep of Wichita State on Wednesday night at Arrocha Ballpark. KU rode a seven-run second inning to a 9-1 victory in a run-rule-shortened opener, then turned a five-run third into an 8-3 victory in the nightcap. “This was a big day for us. We needed to come out here and play well today, and we did that,” KU coach Megan Smith said. “We worked to prepare for Wichita

State on patience at the plate and not giving in. A team like Wichita State, their pitchers will want you to give in and swing at their pitch instead of your pitch. I thought our girls overall did an excellent job of waiting, staying calm and getting their pitch.” In Game One, the Jayhawks (26-12) had four doubles in the decisive second inning. It was more than enough offense to support freshman Alicia Pille (136), who surrendered just an earned run off two hits over five innings.

Kansas banged out 12 hits off two WSU pitchers. Chanin Naudin led the hit parade, going 3-for-3 with a run and two RBIs, while Maddie Stein and Rosie Hull each had two hits. In the nightcap, the Jayhawks collected 10 hits while limiting WSU (7-31) to just five. Ashley Newman, Maggie Hull, Naudin and Mariah Montgomery each had two hits for KU. Mongtomery homered and drove in three runs. In the circle, junior Morgan Druhan (8-4) recorded the win following

a four-inning start. She allowed three runs on three hits, struck out five and walked five. Kansas will host No. 5 Texas in a three-game series this weekend.

Kansas baseball rocked J-W Staff Reports

WICHITA — Wichita State left fielder Taylor Doggett went 3-for-3 and scored three runs, while starting pitcher Tobin Mateychick tossed six strong innings as the Shockers defeated Kansas University, 10-2, Wednesday night at Eck Stadium to sweep the season series. KU fell to 12-21, while the Shockers improved to 21-15. The win provided Wichita State with its first season sweep over Kansas since 2008. The Shockers scored

five runs in the first four innings and broke the game open with four runs in the seventh off the Kansas bullpen. Sophomore center fielder Tucker Tharp led the KU offense, going 2-for-4 with a double and run scored. Senior third baseman Zac Elgie extended his hitting streak to a careerhigh nine games with a single in the seventh inning and came around to score the Jayhawks’ second run. Senior catcher James Stanfield and junior first

baseman Marasco contributed the two RBIs for the Jayhawks. Stanfield drove in Tucker Tharp on a sharp single after Tharp doubled in the sixth inning. Marasco ripped an RBI double in the seventh inning, driving in Elgie. The Jayhawks will host second-ranked Texas A&M at 6 p.m. Friday. Kansas 000 001 100 — 2 9 0 Wichita State 211 100 41x — 10 12 0 W — Tobin Mateychick, 3-0. L — Jordan Luvisi, 0-1. 2B — Tucker Tharp, Jake Marasco, KU; Taylor Doggett, Dayne Parker, WSU.

Prep Muhammad taps UCLA By Gary Bedore

Shabazz Muhammad, the No. 1-ranked basketball player in the Class of 2012, announced plans to attend UCLA on ESPNU’s national signing day special Wednesday. Muhammad, a 6-foot6 senior from Las Vegas’ Bishop Gorman High who attended the Kansas-Missouri game as part of an official recruiting visit on Feb. 25, chose UCLA over Kentucky and Duke.


Jayhawks to sprint through the first half of spring practices. “The coaches’ pace is definitely a big factor in us learning it so quickly,” senior receiver Kale Pick said. “It’s actually a must. You better learn it at this pace or you’re going to be left behind, and then you’re going to lose reps.” Just because KU’s offensive coaches are more unified and, therefore, better equipped to teach,

Francoeur wins fans OAKLAND, CALIF. (AP) — Pizza delivery, courtesy of Jeff Francoeur. The Kansas City Royals’ right fielder had 20 personal pizzas delivered Wednesday to a small but animated group of Oakland Athletics fans in section 149 of the Coliseum. The gesture came a day after the second annual “Bacon Tuesday,” as it has become known. Last year, Francoeur tossed a ball wrapped in a $100 bill into the elevated bleacher seats above his outfield spot, instructing fans to use it to buy bacon or beer. They now love Francoeur and cheer him at every chance. “Baseball is fun. We can take it too serious sometimes,” Francoeur said before the game. “This is something more than just baseball.”

“If I could pick all three, I would,” Muhammad said. “It came down to how comfortable I was with the coach (Ben Howland). It’s what it came down to.” Of KU being in his final five, Muhammad said: “Kansas ... it’s coach (Bill) Self and how great he is as a coach and teacher of the game.” Nerlens Noel, a 6-10 senior from Tilton (N.H) School, chose Kentucky over Syracuse and Georgetown. He’s’s No. 2-rated player nationally.

This, that: Andrew White, a 6-6 senior guard/ forward from Miller School in Charlottesville, Va., will sign his letter-ofintent with KU on Monday at his high school. ... Arizona freshman point guard Josiah Turner has announced plans to transfer. He did not reveal his new list of schools. Turner, 6-3 from Sacramento Calif., averaged 6.8 points a game in a reserve role last season. He chose U of A over Kansas and others in recruiting.

does not mean that learning the new offense has been easy. “It’s definitely more difficult because of the terminology,” Pick said. “I mean, some of our play calls are two sentences long, and you gotta listen to that in the huddle. That’s a little more tough than four or five words. But once we get that down and transition that to action on the field, that’s going to be a big success for us toward the end of the spring.” Crist said he had no doubt the Jayhawks would head into the summer with a solid understanding of the offense.

“The most exciting thing is seeing the work ethic that guys have in terms of learning the playbook,” he said. “Sure, they can go out there and work hard on the field every day, but them texting me constantly with questions and saying, ‘Hey, what about this, this and this,’ and just their desire to get better mentally is great to see. I’m enjoying seeing the progress guys are making, and we’re getting to a point now where guys are comfortable enough with their assignments and scheme and things like that where they can go out there and just play and be athletes.”

Man should ask wife about discovered lie Annie’s Mailbox

likely to hide information when she believes you will not judge her or go looking for old boyfriends. It might help to have this conversation with a counselor who can mediate.

Marcy Sugar and Kathy Mitchell

Dear Annie: My inlaws divorced 10 years ago because of my father-in-law’s homosexual infidelity. Shortly after the divorce, my mother-in-law attempted suicide. I don’t think she has ever sought therapy for her emotional pain. To this day, she continues to badmouth her exhusband in front of her children and grandchildren. She seems to vent mostly to me, probably because I’m related by marriage and she figures I’ll be more receptive. Sometimes she’ll make up stories about him. I believe she wants me to hate him. The truth is,

Dear Lost: She may be protecting this man’s identity because she doesn’t want you to confront him. Or you may know him. Or she could be lying about the affair. She obviously didn’t expect you to check the veracity of her story. Now you need to discuss it with her. Tell her what you discovered. Ask her why she lied. Quite frankly, it serves no purpose for you to know this man’s name, and you should say so (and mean it). She is less

Letterman celebrates milestone

David Letterman celebrates his 65th birthday today. For those who can recall Letterman’s early years as a goofy, youngish guy in a sport coat, that milestone may come as something of a shock. He’s been a part of late-night TV for 30 years. ‘‘Late Night With David Letterman” debuted on NBC on Feb. 1, 1982, with Bill Murray as the first guest. Murray returned to mark the anniversary this past Feb. 1 on “Late Show With David Letterman,” where Dave has held court on CBS since 1993. It would be easy to focus on Letterman’s age and long run. But they somewhat obscure the fact that, with a couple of exceptions, nobody on late night is a kid. Jay Leno turns 62 in a couple of weeks. Jon Stewart and Craig Ferguson turn 50 this year, and Conan O’Brien will do so next year and Stephen Colbert the year after. It’s interesting to note that Johnny Carson, the legendary template for all talk show hosts, took over “The Tonight Show” when he was 37. Chelsea Handler and Jimmy Fallon are 37. Jimmy Kimmel is 44. Their comparative youth may explain some of their success.

A lost engagement ring sets up a proposal re- enactment on the season finale of “Up All Night” (8:30 p.m., NBC). This show has not yet been renewed for a second season.

Tonight’s other highlights

John Goodman guest-stars on “Community” (7 p.m., NBC).

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

Michael takes the initiative on “Missing” (8 p.m., ABC).

Liz tries to make Jack show he cares when his mother (Elaine Stritch) is hospitalized on “30 Rock” (8:30 p.m., NBC).

The machine churns out too many names and numbers on “Person of Interest” (9 p.m., CBS).

A reluctant party-planning staff digs in its heels on “The Office” (8 p.m., NBC).

Martin encounters a grieving woman bent on revenge on “Touch” (8 p.m., Fox).

Owen comes clean under duress on “Grey’s Anatomy” (8 p.m., ABC).

Laura Innes (“ER”) gueststars on “Awake” (8 p.m., NBC).

A client’s Rolodex threatens to rock the nation’s capital on “Scandal” (9 p.m., ABC).

“Independent Lens” (9 p.m., PBS, check local listings) presents “When the Drum Is Beating,” a look at Haiti’s rich musical tradition.


Country singer Ned Miller is 87. Actress Jane Withers is 86. Playwright Alan Ayckbourn is 73. Jazz musician Herbie Hancock is 72. Actor Frank Bank (“Leave It to Beaver”) is 70. Rock singer John Kay (Steppenwolf) is 68. Actor Ed O’Neill is 66. Author Tom Clancy is 65. Actor Dan Lauria is 65. Author Scott Turow is 63. Singer David Cassidy is 62. Actor-playwright Tom Noonan is 61. Rhythm-and-blues singer JD Nicholas (The Commodores) is 60.


For Thursday, April 12: Let go of a need to have your life work out in a certain way. The more you push, the less likely you will achieve your goals. If you are single, your desirability speaks to many people. If you are attached, your charisma adds many sparks to the relationship. Enjoy the heat. 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)  Take charge and handle a personal matter before it gets out of control. You can let this matter sit on the back burner, but the cost could be far higher than you anticipate. Tonight: Burning the candle at both ends. Taurus (April 20-May 20)  You juggle many different interests, but you see a continuum in the various areas you are involved with. Use this information to enhance your perspective. Tonight: Where you’ve always wanted to go. Gemini (May 21-June 20)  You might want to continue a discussion, especially if you see an opening. The other party will see you in a new light. Tonight: Dinner and discussions. Cancer (June 21-July 22)  You finally can witness what you’ve sensed has been going on. A key associate or friend sees you in a different light. Tonight: All smiles. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)  Observe the interaction between you and a certain someone. Your instincts will take you to a new realm of thinking, and you’ll see your relationship differently. Tonight: Surprises or unexpected events come forward. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)  Listen to your intuitive voice,

EASY DOES IT By Milton J. Ruff


I don’t. In spite of what happened, he has been a wonderful father and grandfather, and we love him. How can I get her to stop bashing him without seeming to take sides and hurting her feelings? — Dumped Upon Dear Dumped: It is perfectly OK to tell your mother-in-law that you don’t want to hear such criticisms and simply ask her to stop. Or get up and leave when she starts in. But you might also say with genuine concern that she seems obsessed with her ex and you are worried about her mental health. Suggest she seek therapy not only to vent to a professional, but to learn how to move forACROSS ward with her life. — Send questions to, or Annie’s Mailbox, P.O. Box 118190 Chicago, IL 60611.

even if it seems to plot a different path from the one you are on. Sometimes being uncomfortable works well. Tonight: Trust your judgment. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  Tension builds as you realize that you are not up to doing something you need to do. A close friend or associate nudges you to take the next step. Tonight: Do errands on the way home. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  You say what you mean, and eventually that message gets through. Your ability to communicate your desires to others draws quite a reaction from them. Tonight: The answer is “yes.” Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)  A change involving funds could be occurring. Your bank might have changed its policies; payments might be due a different day. Tonight: Relax. Choose a favorite pastime. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)  Take an opportunity to reveal your thoughts and explain the depth of what you are feeling. Let go of fear or resistance. Tonight: Use the moment to plan or even start your weekend. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  You might not reveal exactly what you are thinking because you could be trying to gauge what others are thinking as well. Do not form judgments until you have all the facts. Tonight: Get some extra Z’s. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)  A meeting does not need to be awkward. Drop that expectation, and you might be delighted by what follows. Tonight: Respond to a friend’s request.

Dear Annie: My wife and I were both married before. Last year, she confessed that she’d had a 35-year affair with a married doctor. At the time, she was in her early 20s, and he was in his early 40s. After 35 years, she decided he was too old for her and ended things. She told me the doctor’s name, but when I did some checking, I discovered it was a fake name. I am not upset about her past. But I am terribly unhappy that she is lying to me. She met this doctor in his office, so she knows his name. How can she expect me to believe she didn’t know the identity of a guy with whom she had a 35year affair? I no longer trust her and don’t like the dishonesty. Is there any way to trust her again, or do I move on? — Lost in El Paso
