Brownback: Agency changes will improve services Critics remain skeptical of vast reorganization

By John Hanna Associated Press

TOPEKA — Gov. Sam Brownback and several top administration officials sought to dispel doubts about his plan to overhaul the state’s Medicaid pro-


gram, declaring Thursday that the planned summertime reorganization of three government departments will improve services for the poor, disabled and elderly.

Colyer and the three agencies’ secretaries had a Statehouse news conference to publicize the coming reorganization,

Before then, in July, the state will reorganize its departments of Aging, Health and Environment and Social and Rehabilitation Services. Brownback, Lt. Gov. Jeff

SUSAN MAYBERRY, 47, A HEALTH AND PHYSICAL EDUCATIONAL TEACHER at Basehor-Linwood High School, works with a class outside on March 15. Mayberry was among 40 teachers who completed a heart health program at Kansas University Hospital last year. She said the program forced her to revisit the factors that put her at risk for heart disease, and one of those factors was her poor diet. The program provided one-on-one counseling, and since then, she said, she has improved her eating habits.

KU Hospital program provides screening for disease, plus steps to reduce risks By Karrey Britt

Five years ago, Kansas University Hospital started a unique program called A Change of Heart to inspire heart-healthy living. The program provides a heart assessment and one-on-one counseling on how to improve the factors that put people at risk for heart disease, which is America’s No. 1 killer. “This program gives you the education and the tools to bring your numbers down,” said Karin Morgan, a registered nurse and program coordinator. “You can go just about anywhere and stick your finger and then you might get a card that says it’s normal. Well, what does that mean?” Morgan said it’s the education component that doctors often

don’t have the time to provide, and that’s where the program comes into play. Since its inception, the program has screened about 930 people, mostly women. Of those, 90 percent have been identified as having at least one risk factor for heart disease. More than 75 percent had multiple factors. “We’ve had women who have come here in the morning, and they were in the cath(eterization) lab the next day from heart disease,” Morgan said. “I think a lot of people don’t get their numbers checked because they are in denial or they don’t think anything is wrong or they go to the doctor occasionally.”

Reporter shares experience going through heart program By Karrey Britt

I hadn’t heard about Kansas University Hospital’s A Change of Heart program until I was invited to a brunch at Cedar Crest in spring 2010. Then-Gov. Mark Parkinson, and his wife, Stacy, wanted to roll out the program statewide. At least 100 people attended, from lawmakers to health pro-

viders, and they were clad in red and talking heart health. At age 49, Shirley Allenbrand, of Lenexa, said the program had saved her life. I left the event motivated and ready to take the heart assessment myself, but soon forgot and never heard much about the initiative again.

Arts groups come together under one umbrella By Alex Garrison

A new campaign aims to support and promote arts events in Lawrence. Supporting the Arts, underwritten by the Trust Company of Kansas (TCK), is a public rela-

tions campaign and website that brings together eight Lawrence arts nonprofits to connect with business supporters in the hope of strengthening the visual and performing arts in the city, as well as the enhanced quality of life they provide, said

Mike Katzenmeier, director of Marketing Resources, the company that’s running the campaign. Katzenmeier and others kicked off the campaign Thursday at the Lawrence Arts Center, 940 N.H. With participating members present, he

walked through the website, supportingthearts. com, and highlighted its features of promoting events and connecting users with ways to give their time or money to the individual arts groups. Supporting the Arts began in 2004 in Wich-

Bernard E. Domann, Lawrence, KS passed away on his birthday, April 11, 2012 at Lawrence Memorial Hospital in Lawrence. “Bernie” as he was known, was born April 11, 1925 in Mooney Creek, Kansas and was one of 10 children of Albert and Mary Domann. He was very proud of his heritage in the Mooney Creek Community and was very close to his seven sisters. He graduated from Winchester High School and received a degree in pharmacy at the University of Kansas School of Pharmacy in 1949. Domann served briefly in the Korean War and later moved to Atchison where he worked at Schmierer Drugs. Bernie married Mamie Irene Turner in 1952 in Atchison, KS. He purchased the drugstore in 1953 and following the flood in 1958, Domann was of several individuals who led the Atchison urban renewal effort when he built a new drugstore, Domann Drug Inc., on the Atchison Mall. Many a high school kids in the Atchison area were hired by Domann for their first job. The drugstore became known for its great service and especially for its fountain that served their famous tenderloin sandwich, and was a gathering place for coffee clubs. He expanded his business to include the Wishing Well a children’s store and the Clothes Vault, both on the downtown mall. Their six children all worked at the family businesses as they were growing up. He retired from the business in 1992. Bernie was active in the community and served on the board of the City National Bank and the Atchison Hospital and served as President of the Atchison Chamber of Commerce. Bernie loved to teach and taught dozens of children to water ski at the family summer home at Bean Lake Missouri and was especially fond of teaching children and adults to ball room dance. In 1987, Bernie married Kay Fowler Shipman and they adopted a son Mikel where they have lived in Lawrence, since 1999. Bernie was an avid Jayhawks fan and attended basketball games for numerous years. Survivors include his wife, Kay Domann and son Mikel of the home, his sisters: Helen Domann, Lenexa, KS, Aletha Domann, Lenexa, KS, Grace Curran, Centerville, OH, Kay Johnson, Minneapolis, MN, Gerry Nicholas, Blue Springs, MO, Darlene Domann, Lee’s Summit, MO.

which will consolidate programs providing long-term care for both the elderly and disabled into one agency. The reorganization also will eliminate 10 administrative jobs and permit SRS to focus on services for families and children. Administration officials said the agencies’ reorganization is crucial to overhauling Medicaid to improve the coordination of care and overall health of participants and reduce the state’s costs. The overhaul has drawn bipartisan criticism, though the agencies’ reorganization attracted no significant legislative opposition. Brownback issued an executive order in February to reorganize the agencies, and the state constitution gave legislators until last week to block it. They didn’t act before starting their annual spring break at the end of March. “We want Kansas to work better,” Brownback said. “We want it to work more efficiently, so that we can afford the services that our vulnerable community needs.” Brownback’s administration is reviewing bids from five companies that are all based outside Kansas or are affiliates or subsidiaries of out-of-state companies. The administration plans to issue three contracts this summer, with each company operating statewide so Medicaid participants have a choice of managed-care coverage. Most of the 385,000 Kansans receiving state medical assistance have managed-care coverage through private contractors, but the overhauled Medicaid program, to be called KanCare, would be the first time Kansas has brought the disabled and elderly, including those in

nursing homes, into such a system. An increased number of Kansans needing relatively expensive long-term services would be covered by managed care. Legislators reconvene April 25, and advocates are expected to push lawmakers to “carve out” services for the developmentally disabled from the KanCare contracts. Advocates persuaded the Shawnee County Commission to adopt a resolution Thursday asking Brownback to reconsider the overhaul, The Topeka Capital-Journal reported. Senate Minority Leader Anthony Hensley, a Topeka Democrat, said the news conference with the governor, three Cabinet secretaries and Colyer, the architect of the Medicaid plan, shows Brownback’s administration understands it still faces a “hard sales job.” “There’s a lot of skepticism about this whole issue,” Hensley said. The reorganization will move oversight of the state’s five hospitals for the mentally ill and developmentally disabled from SRS to the Department on Aging, along with other services for the disabled and mentally ill. The Department on Aging also will take over some regulatory functions from the health department. It will become the Department on Aging and Disability Services. The health department will oversee Medicaid’s financial management, and SRS will become the Department of Children and Families. SRS Secretary Phyllis Gilmore said that as part of its new, narrower focus, reorganized her department will seek to hire at least 20 additional social workers to help children in troubled families. Colyer said: “The point of this is focus, and so what we’re trying to do is focus on core missions.”

TOPEKA — Kansas has more wind energy projects under construction than any other state, according to a wind industry report released Thursday. The state has more than $2 billion worth of wind projects under construction at the moment, the American Wind Energy Association reported. AWEA also said Kansas has become a wind turbine manufacturing hub with the new Siemens facility in Hutchinson and some 3,000 wind-related jobs throughout the state. In addition to ranking first with 1,189 megawatts of wind projects under construction, Kansas ranked seventh for wind energy as a percentage of total energy portfolio at 8.3 percent. South Dakota ranked first at 22.3 percent. The industry group said wind power enjoyed a strong year of doubledigit growth in the United States, but needed Congress to extend the Production Tax Credit to keep up the momentum. “In hard economic times we’re creating jobs and delivering clean, affordable electricity,” AWEA Chief Executive Officer Denise Bode stressed. “But we will lose all these consumer benefits and a brand-new, growing manufacturing sector if Congress allows the Production Tax Credit to expire. Businesses need certainty. That is why it is urgent that Congress extend the PTC now or risk losing a bright new manufacturing sector,” Bode said. Gov. Sam Brownback has also been a supporter of extending the tax credit. In February, he and Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad urged key members of Congress to approve it, saying without the credit, wind development would grind to a halt. “The wind energy sector is an American success story that is helping us build our manufacturing base, create jobs, lower energy costs and strengthen our energy security,” the governors said. — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668. 609 N.H.

Convicted murderer argues for new trial

The way they roll

KUnited candidate wins big By Andy Hyland

Kansas University students who voted in this week’s Student Senate elections overwhelmingly chose Hannah Bolton, a junior from St. Libory, Neb., as their next student body president. Bolton and her vicepresidential running mate, Brandon Woodard, a junior from Topeka, earned 84.5 perBolton cent of the vote. They hugged and celebrated at The Oread hotel as the totals were announced Thursday Woodard evening on KUJH-TV. “There’s a lot of emotion,” Bolton said shortly after the victory, citing fatigue, excitement, happiness and anticipation for the year ahead. While their coalition, KUnited, has 11 platform issues it hopes to address in the next school year, Bolton and Woodard had different top issues they wanted to address. For Bolton, it was pushing for a policy that would increase grading consistency in classes in the same department. Woodard said he hoped to advocate for the establishment of a Spanish minor. “It’s such an amazing time for us to be in office,” with the changes going on across the university, Bolton said. Bolton and Woodard were running against Gus Bova, a nontraditional freshman from Lawrence, and Claire Kerwin, a senior from St. Louis, who represented a coalition that sprang from the Occupy KU movement.

TOPEKA — Christopher Belone, who was convicted in the 2006 beating death of his girlfriend in Lawrence, should get a new trial because there were major errors in his first trial, his attorney argued Thursday before the Kansas Supreme Court. But Assistant Douglas County District Attorney Eve Kemple Belone said even if there were errors, the jury would have found Belone guilty.

Man arrested for driving into residence A 21-year-old man was arrested on DUI and reckless driving charges late Wednesday after he crashed into a residence in the 1700 block of Tennessee Street. Sgt. Trent McKinley, a Lawrence police spokesman, said the man, Mitchell Ellis Friesen, about 11:50 p.m. was headed south on Tennessee Street and attempted to turn east, lost control and crashed into the residence. A resident inside was sleeping and was knocked out of the bed by the impact, but no one was injured, McKinley said. People were boarding up windows at the residence Thursday morning, pictured above.. Officers suspect that Friesen was intoxicated during the accident, McKinley said. He posted $500 bond and was given notice to appear in court April 25. Information was forwarded to Douglas County prosecutors, who are expected to make a decision about filing formal charges. Friesen is listed as a Kansas University student.

Amped-up speeches and overflow crowds greeted Kansas Democratic Party caucus-goers in 2008. But this year’s Democratic caucus on Saturday is likely to be pretty calm. The ballot will contain just one candidate — President Barack Obama — unlike four years ago, when Obama and Hillary Clinton were locked in a tough race. And the Kansas Democratic Party is trying to regroup after a devastating 2010 election cycle. “We’re hoping for a good turnout,” said Douglas County Democratic Party Chairman Ed Quick. “It’s just a much different situation.” Democrats hope the caucuses will help build up the party, generate enthusiasm and kick off the 2012 election season. “We are excited about this year’s caucus and the opportunity it provides to bring Democrats together and jump-start the 2012 elections,” said Joan Wagnon, chair of the state Democratic Party. Democrats will stand behind President Obama, but Kansas most likely will fall in the Republican column, just as it has in every presidential election since 1940 with the exception of John Kennedy’s election in 1964. In 2008 in Kansas, Obama received 41.6 percent of the vote against Republican John McCain. Obama won only three counties: Douglas, Wyandotte and Crawford. Last month, Kansas Republicans caucused and supported former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum. He has since dropped out of the race, leaving Mitt Romney

evidence to show that although Belone acted recklessly he had no intention to kill Begay. Belone, she said, said that Begay was intoxicated and had attacked him. Prosecutors said Belone was in a jealous rage when he found Begay in another man’s trailer at Gaslight Village Mobile Home Park, 1900 W. 31st St. Kemple said the evidence was clear that Belone intended to kill Begay. He struck her repeatedly with the coffee table leg that had a bolt sticking out of it, she said. “He jams it forcefully, repeatedly into her stomach,” she said. Another dispute was over a recorded statement

Begay made to police shortly after the incident. The jury was allowed to hear it. Davis said Belone had no opportunity to crossexamine that testimony because Begay later died. Justice Eric Rosen asked Davis, “The victim is interviewed in anticipation of an investigation and then the victim dies; that evidence is gone, we can’t use it?” Davis said during the first interview with police that Begay was drunk and rambling. The recording “carried a lot of weight with the jury” but Belone’s attorney had no opportunity to challenge her, she said. — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

In Lawrence, the U.S. House District 2, State Senate District 2 caucus will be held at the Community Building, 115 W. 11th St. These three caucuses will be at Liberty Memorial Central Middle School, 1400 Mass.: U.S. House District 2, State Senate District 3; U.S. House District 3, State Senate District 2; and U.S. House District 3, State Senate District 3. as the presumed nominee. Aside from supporting Obama, Democrats hope to defend their seats in the Kansas House and Senate and, perhaps, recapture a few House seats lost in the 2010 mid-term election. But in this political climate that will be a difficult task. Republicans outnumber Democrats 92-33 in the House and 32-8 in the Senate. Every statewide and congressional representative is a Republican, and the Legislature has yet to approve legislative district boundaries through the once-a-decade reapportionment process. And with the election of conservative Republican Gov. Sam Brownback, it’s not only Democrats but also moderate Republicans who are fighting for their political lives. The biggest battle in Kansas likely will be the Republican Party primary in August where CF:BFLK G>$(*8nife^cpZfem`Zk\[\o$^fm$ \ied\ekX^\ekn`ccn`e_`j]i\\[fd `]_\i\jZl\jk_\gi\j`[\ekËj[Xl^_$ k\i]ifdXeflk\i$jgXZ\gi`jfe k_Xk_XjY\\ekXb\efm\iYpm`fc\ek `edXk\j% ?fccpnff[Jflk_n`e[:`e\dX()

eight Kansas Senate seats that are currently held by moderate Republicans have been targeted by Brownback allies. Despite facing long odds, Democrats say they will keep trying to get their message out and win converts. “Our caucus will allow Kansas Democrats to stand up and express their belief in our president and their belief in our shared values of good schools, good jobs and a fair system,” Wagnon said. — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

Grain elevator cited for serious violations Explosion last year in Atchison killed 6 By Heather Hollingsworth Associated Press

KANSAS CITY, MO. — The federal government cited a Missouri grain company Thursday for willful safety violations and proposed a hefty fine for an explosion that killed six workers last October at a northeast Kansas grain elevator. U.S. Labor Secretary Hilda Solis said in a news release the deaths at the Bartlett Grain Co. elevator in Atchison “could have been prevented” if the operators had addressed hazards known in the industry. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is seeking $406,000 in


She said they’ve seen people who had no idea they had diabetes or high cholesterol levels. “A lot of people look at their BMI (Body Mass Index) and go, ‘Huh?’” Morgan said. “Many people are surprised at their risk levels.” KU’s program costs $60, takes 90 minutes to complete and is available for anyone 18 and older. “It’s personalized and same-day results,” Morgan said. She hopes to soon be able to offer scholarships to those who can’t afford it.

Teacher initiative In December 2010, the program received an anonymous donation to start a Teacher Change of Heart program. The goal is for the teachers to take the education back into their classrooms with the hope that the students will share it with their families. About 40 teachers participated in the program last year. Morgan hopes 100 will complete it this year. They want to reach out to adolescents because they are the group most likely to start smoking, which is a huge risk factor for heart disease. Additionally, obesity and diabetes are on the rise among children — two more risk factors. Last August, Susan Mayberry, 47, a health and physical education teach-


there were good intentions, but it failed due to costs. In March, I received a press release that the A Change of Heart program had moved into a new women’s heart center on the first floor of the hospital. I was motivated again, yet nervous about what I might find out. That’s because I’ve had my cholesterol checked at my primary care doctor’s office and then received a notice in the mail that said my numbers were slightly elevated. Additionally, heart disease runs on my mother’s side of the family. My grandfather died of a heart attack. Once I paid the $60 fee by credit card over the phone, I received information about my upcoming appointment and an online survey that needed to be filled out prior to my appointment. It asked questions ranging from fruit-and-vegetable consumption to sleep habits and took about 20 minutes to complete. On the day of my appointment, I needed to fast after midnight. Once there, I filled out a little more paperwork, and then the testing began. I was client No. 927. Sarah Sanders, a cardiovascular nurse clinician, measured my weight,

penalties in addition to the citations alleging five willful and eight serious safety violations. “Bartlett Grain’s disregard for the law led to a catastrophic accident and heartbreaking tragedy for the workers who were injured or killed, their families and the agricultural community,” Solis said. A contractor also was cited, and both companies vowed to fight the claims. Kansas investigators previously determined the Oct. 29, 2011, grain dust explosion was accidental. Two other workers were injured in the blast in Atchison, about 50 miles northwest of Kansas City. Among the willful violations, OSHA alleges Bartlett Grain allowed grain dust, which is nine

times as explosive as coal dust, to accumulate and used compressed air to remove dust without first shutting down ignition sources. OSHA defines a willful violation as one committed with intentional knowing or voluntary disregard for the law’s requirements or with plain indifference to worker safety and health. The serious violations, defined as those with a substantial probability of death or serious physical harm, include claims that there was a lack of preventive maintenance and that the housekeeping program was deficient because it didn’t prevent grain dust accumulations. Labor Department spokesman Scott Allen said anytime there is a

fatality along with a willful violation, the department’s office of solicitor may consider forwarding the case to the Justice Department for criminal consideration. “That has not been done at this point and no decision has been made on that right now,” Allen said in a phone interview. A call to the Atchison County prosecutor wasn’t immediately returned. The offices of Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt and Gov. Sam Brownback had no immediate comment. Bob Knief, the president of Bartlett Grain, said in a written statement that the company plans to prove wrong “OSHA’s unfortunate citations and characterization.”

er at Basehor-Linwood High School, completed the program. She said her family history puts her at risk for heart disease. Mayberry said the heart assessment and education forced her to revisit the factors that put her at risk, and one of those factors was her poor diet. She said the main reasons for her unhealthy habits were vending machines at school, Sonic Drive-In on her way to and from work, and potato chips. “They are easy. If you come home late from practice and you’re tired, you just eat the first thing that’s easy and you can grab,” she said. According to the heart assessment, Mayberry was prone to have a heart episode within 10 years. “I was in the at-risk category,” she said. The program’s nurses provided a lot of tips that she’s put into place, including taking snacks, such as nutritious grain bars or little bags of peanuts, to school. She also puts bran flakes and raisins into sandwich-size storage bags on Sunday night, so they are available when she gets home from work during the week. She might have a bag of the mix or a cup of yogurt. “It’s something quick that I can have until I calm down and can think about having a meal. It’s about sitting down and eating instead of eating junk,” she said. Mayberry said she’s shared her experience with students and has talked to

the principal about purchasing target heart rate monitors. She plans to have a cardiologist come to speak during her classes and maybe even show some videos about heart disease. She said two other Basehor-Linwood High School teachers went through the program and their students have used pedometers and participated in a Wear Red Day to raise awareness about heart disease. “My health kids are mostly ninth-graders and some 10th-graders, and they really do want to know about good choices of eating — far more than probably five years ago,” she said. “A lot of their grandparents and parents have had bypass surgeries, and we are talking 40-year-old parents.” Now that Mayberry has made some changes in her diet, she would like to have a follow-up assessment to see if her numbers have improved. For now, the KU program is a one-time program, and the nurses encourage participants to follow up with a primary care doctor or cardiologist. But, Mayberry said that doesn’t hold her accountable. “There’s not a safety net there to make sure that people follow through and go forward with it,” she said.

comments to heart and are working on adding a one-time follow-up as part of the program. Morgan expects that to occur any day. It will be just one of several changes that have been made to the program since its inception. In September 2010, they added a research component. If women agree to participate, they will receive a survey at one month, three months, six months and then every year for 20 years. The goal is to track how women are doing. She said participants can see results within four to six weeks if they are truly making changes. In February, the program moved into an area on the first floor of KU Hospital called the Adelaide C. Ward Women’s Heart Health Center. The center was made possible through a donation from the Louis L. and Adelaide C. Ward Foundation. “There’s no greater gift to give someone than a heart assessment,” said benefactor Addie Ward. Because of the additional space, the program recently added a dietitian who is available by appointment to visit clients who go through the program. It also has a resource center. To make an appointment, call 913-588-1227 or email hearthealth@kumc. edu.

waist, blood pressure and pulse, and then she took some blood from my finger. Within five minutes, they had my results. Kathleen Dalton, advanced practice registered nurse, went over them with me. I’ve never had someone explain my numbers like she did. She was very thorough and understandable, and the good news was I had nothing to worry about. All of my numbers were optimal except my LDL, or bad, cholesterol, which was slightly elevated. The optimal level is less than 100 milligrams per deciliter and the desired level is less than 130. Mine was 108. The numbers included: BMI, waist circumference, blood pressure, pulse, total cholesterol, triglycerides, HDL and LDL cholesterol and glucose. For example, the desirable waist for women is 35 inches or less; for men, it’s 40 inches. Dalton explained the risk factors that lead to heart disease, including diabetes, smoking, poor exercise, poor diet, age, medications and immediate family’s heart history. She also went over symptoms, and she put some of my fears to rest. When she asked if I had any dizziness or irregular heart beats, I said, “Yes. Maybe?” Sometimes when I am on the treadmill, I feel light-headed. She said it’s probably dehydration. I also told her that

when I lie down in bed for a night’s sleep, sometimes my heart is pounding. She said that’s normal and then explained what would be abnormal. After the session with Dalton, I was offered a buffet of heart-healthy foods to pick from, and then I sat down with Morgan. As I ate a whole-wheat bagel with a tad of cream cheese and fruit, she talked about nutrition and exercise and then offered advice. “Your BMI is perfect. Your waist is perfect. You’re already exercising. There’s not much you can do from here but maintain what you are doing,” she said. It was music to my ears. I strive to get at least an hour of exercise six days a week, mostly walking or bicycling. I also try to fit in weights and other exercises like sit-ups when I can. I asked Morgan about healthy snacks to take to work, and she suggested fruit, yogurt, vegetables or a handful of nuts. After exchanging personal stories about exercise and eating habits, she handed me a bagful of goodies to take home: a stack of brochures on everything from nutritious nibbles to eating out, a note pad and pen, a food journal, a waist measurement kit, a pedometer and a handbook on eating out. There also was a folder of information that included the results of my online survey and suggestions for improvement along with

Prosecutors outline Martin shooting case Affidavit: Zimmerman ignored police dispatcher

GEORGE ZIMMERMAN, CENTER, IS DIRECTED by a Seminole County Deputy and his attorney Mark O’Mara during a court hearing Thursday in Sanford, Fla. Zimmerman has been charged with second-degree murder in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

By Greg Bluestein and Tamara Lush Associated Press

SANFORD, FLA. — After weeks in hiding, George Zimmerman made his first courtroom appearance Thursday in the shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, and prosecutors outlined their murder case in court papers, saying the neighborhood watch volunteer followed and confronted the black teenager after a police dispatcher told him not to. The brief outline, contained in an affidavit filed in support of the seconddegree murder charges, appeared to contradict Zimmerman’s claim that Martin attacked him after he had turned away and was returning to his vehicle. In the affidavit, prosecutors also said that Martin’s mother identified cries for help heard in the background of a 911 call as her son’s. There had been some question as to whether Martin or Zimmerman was the one crying out. The account of the shooting was released as Zimmerman, 28, appeared at a fourminute hearing in a jailhouse courtroom, setting in motion what could be a long, drawnout process, or an abrupt and disappointingly short one for the Martin family because of the strong legal protections contained in Florida’s “stand your ground” law on selfdefense. During the hearing, Zimmerman stood up straight, held his head high and wore a gray jail jumpsuit. He spoke only to answer “Yes, sir” twice after he was asked basic questions from the judge, who was not in the courtroom but on closed-circuit

TV. The defendant’s hair was shaved down to stubble and he had a thin goatee. His hands were shackled in front of him. He did not enter a plea; that will happen at his arraignment, which was set for May 29. Zimmerman’s attorney, Mark O’Mara, has said his client will plead not guilty. A bail hearing for Zimmerman probably will be held April 20, O’Mara said late Thursday. To prove second-degree murder, prosecutors must show that Zimmerman committed an “imminently dangerous” act that showed a “depraved” lack of regard for human life. The charge carries a mandatory sentence of 25 years in prison and a maximum of life. The special prosecutor in the case, Angela Corey, has refused to explain exactly how she arrived at the charge. But in the affidavit, prosecutors said Zimmerman spotted Martin while patrolling his gated community, got out of his vehicle and followed the young man. Prosecutors interviewed a friend of Martin’s who was talking to him over the phone moments before the shooting. His parents’ lawyer has said that Martin was talking to his girlfriend back in Miami.

“During this time, Martin was on the phone with a friend and described to her what was happening,” the affidavit said. “The witness advised that Martin was scared because he was being followed through the complex by an unknown male and didn’t know why.” During a recorded call to a police dispatcher, Zimmerman “made reference to people he felt had committed and gotten away with break-ins in his neighborhood. Later while talking about Martin, Zimmerman stated ‘these a------s, they always get away’ and also said ‘these f-----g punks,’ said the affidavit, available at http:// . It continued: “When the police dispatcher realized Zimmerman was pursuing Martin, he instructed Zimmerman not to do that and that the responding officer would meet him. Zimmerman disregarded the police dispatcher and continued to follow Martin, who was trying to return to his home.” “Zimmerman confronted Martin and a struggle ensued,” prosecutors said in their account. The account provided no details on the struggle other than to say that witnesses heard numerous calls for help and that Martin’s mother reviewed

the 911 recordings and recognized her son’s cry. Zimmerman told authorities that Martin attacked him as he going back to his vehicle, punched him in the face, knocked him down and began slamming head against the sidewalk. At Thursday’s hearing, the case was assigned to Circuit Judge Jessica Recksiedler, a 39-year-old former assistant state attorney from Sanford who was elected to the bench in 2010. Zimmerman is being held without bail at the county jail. For all the relief among civil rights activists over the arrest, legal experts warned there is a real chance the case could get thrown out before it ever goes to trial because of Florida’s “stand your ground” law, which gives people a broad right to use deadly force without having to retreat from a fight. At a pretrial hearing, Zimmerman’s lawyers would only have to prove by a preponderance of evidence — a relatively low legal standard — that he acted in self-defense in order to get a judge to toss out the second-murder charges. And if that fails and the case does go to trial, the defense can raise the argument all over again.

Baboons can learn to spot real words By Seth Borenstein Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Dan the baboon sits in front of a computer screen. The letters BRRU pop up. With a quick and almost dismissive tap, the monkey signals it’s not a word. Correct. Next comes, ITCS. Again, not a word. Finally KITE comes up. He pauses and hits a green oval to show it’s a word. In the space of just a few seconds, Dan has demonstrated a mastery of what some experts say is a form of pre-reading and walks away rewarded with a treat of dried wheat. Dan is part of new research that shows baboons are able to pick up the first step in reading — identifying recurring patterns and determining which four-letter combinations are words and which are just gobbledygook. The study shows that reading’s early steps are far more instinctive than scientists first thought and it also indicates that nonhuman primates may

be smarter than we give them credit for. “They’ve got the hang of this thing,” said Jonathan Grainger, a French scientist and lead author of the research. Baboons and other monkeys are good pattern finders and what they are doing may be what we first do in recognizing words. It’s still a far cry from real reading. They don’t understand what these words mean, and are just breaking them down into parts, said Grainger, a cognitive psychologist at the Aix-Marseille University in France.

Syrian opposition vows protest to test truce By Elizabeth A. Kennedy and Zeina Karam Associated Press AP File Photo

ANN ROMNEY, wife of Republican presidential candidate and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, speaks March 19 in Springfield, Ill.

Obama defends Romney’s wife By Laurie Kellman Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The White House — and President Barack Obama himself — rushed into a damage control campaign Thursday to blunt the impact of a Democratic consultant’s suggestion that Ann Romney isn’t qualified to discuss the economy because she “hasn’t worked a day in her life.” “There’s no tougher job than being a mom,” Obama declared, standing up for Republican rival Mitt Romney’s wife with Democrats suddenly on the defensive over women’s issues for the first time this election year. Obama, in an interview with Cedar Rapids, Iowa, TV station KCRG, said, “When I think about what Michelle’s had to do, when I think about my own mom, a single mother raising me and my sister, that’s work. So, anybody who would argue otherwise probably needs to rethink their statement.” The president’s remarks were his answer to consultant Hilary Rosen’s comments and the Twitter war they ignited. The mere fact that he weighed in on the uproar left no doubt that Democrats want to leave nothing to chance in their effort to keep female voters in the party fold. Women, who are the majority of voters in presidential election years, lean heavily Democratic, and polls show Obama holds a commanding lead among this group so far this year in battleground states. Mitt Romney, the former Massachusetts governor, must win about 40 percent of female voters to have a chance at beating Obama, and he’s targeting married women and mothers who tend to be more conservative. Among this group, Ann Romney is popular and has been the candidate’s chief surrogate on how the struggling economy has affected women and families. So his campaign pounced when Rosen said on CNN Wednesday that Ann Romney was no expert on the economy. “His wife has actually never worked a day in her life,” Rosen said. “She’s never really dealt with the kinds of economic issues that a majority of women in this country are facing.” Rosen apologized late Thursday, after first lady Michelle Obama tweeted her own support for women and mothers. The backlash to Rosen’s comments was bipartisan, brutal and swift, crackling across Twitter, cable television and old-fashioned telephone lines. It appeared to have reignited the “Mommy Wars” debate, at least for now, over choices many women make as they juggle motherhood with the work most need to pay bills, college tuition and a semblance of financial security for their families. Ann Romney fought back on Twitter and television, tweeting: “I made a choice to stay home and raise five boys. Believe me, it was hard work.”

BEIRUT — Syria’s opposition called for widespread protests today to test the regime’s commitment to an internationally brokered cease-fire that the U.N. chief described as so fragile it could collapse with a single gunshot. Regime forces halted heavy shelling and other major attacks in line with the truce that began at dawn Thursday, though there were accusations of scattered violence by both sides. The government ignored demands to pull troops back to barracks, however, defying a key aspect of the plan, which aims to calm a year-old uprising that has killed 9,000 people and has pushed the country toward civil war. “The onus is on the gov-

ernment of Syria to prove that their words will be matched by their deeds at this time,” U.N. SecretaryGeneral Ban Ki-moon told reporters in Geneva. He said the world was watching with skeptical eyes. “This cease-fire process is very fragile. It may be broken any time,” Ban added, saying “another gunshot” could doom the truce. The presence of tanks and troops could discourage any large gatherings, but the leader of the opposition Syrian National Council, Burhan Ghalioun, urged Syrians to demonstrate peacefully today. “Tomorrow, like every Friday, the Syrian people are called to demonstrate even more and put the regime in front of its responsibilities — put the international community in front of its responsibilities.” A massive protest

N. Korea: Satellite failed to enter orbit By Jean H. Lee Associated Press

PYONGYANG, NORTH KO— North Korea’s much-anticipated rocket launch ended quickly in failure early today, splintering into pieces over the Yellow Sea soon after takeoff. North Korea acknowledged in an announcement broadcast on state TV that a satellite launched hours earlier from the west coast failed to enter into orbit. The U.S. and South Korea also declared the launch a failure. The Kwangmyongsong-3 satellite was fired from the Sohae Satellite Launching Station in Tongchang-ri along the west coast at 7:38 a.m., but failed to reach orbit, the state-run Korean Central News Agency said. “Scientists, technicians and experts are now looking into the cause of the failure,” KCNA said. U.S. and South Korean officials said hours earlier that the rocket splintered into pieces about a minute after liftoff over the Yellow Sea, calling it a provocative failed test of missile technology. In response to the launch, Washington announced it was suspending plans to contribute food aid to the North in exchange for a rollback of its nuclear programs. The U.S., Japan, Britain and other nations had been urging North Korea to cancel a launch seen as a covert test of the rocket technology also used to send a long-range missile to strike the U.S. North Korea refused to back down, saying the rocket would only carry a civilian satellite, touting it as a major technological achievement to mark the 100th anniversary of the birth of the country’s founder, Kim Il Sung, on Sunday. Still, the rocket failure is a major embarrassment for Pyongyang, which has invited dozens of international journalists to observe the rocket launch and other celebrations. REA

Wrong turn grants glimpse behind N. Korean curtain By Tim Sullivan Associated Press

PYONGYANG, NORTH KO— The press bus took a wrong turn Thursday. And suddenly, everything changed in the official showcase of North Korean achievement. A cloud of brown dust swirled down deeply potholed streets, past concrete apartment buildings crumbling at the edges. Old people trudged along the sidewalk, some with handmade backpacks crafted from canvas bags. Two men in wheelchairs waited at a bus stop. There were stores with no lights, and side roads so battered they were more dirt than pavement. “Perhaps this is an incorrect road?” mumbled one of the North Korean minders, well-dressed government officials who restrict reporters to meticulously staged presentations that inevitably center on praise for the three generations of Kim family who have ruled this country since 1948. So as cameras madly clicked, the drivers quickly backed up the three buses in the narrow streets and headed toward the intended destination: a spotlessly clean, brightly-lit, extensively marbled and nearly empty building that preserves digital music recordings and makes DVDs. The foreign journalists, invited into North Korea as it commemorates the centennial of founder Kim Il Sung’s birth, arrived at the Hana Music Information Center, where a guide told them secondgeneration leader Kim Jong Il made one of his last public appearances there before his December death. “I hope that the journalists present here report only the absolute truth,” said Ri Jinju,


her voice trembling, her hair frozen with hairspray. “The truth about how much our people miss our comrade Kim Jong Il, and how strong the unity is between the people and leadership, who are vigorously carrying out the leaders’ instructions to build a great, prosperous and powerful nation.” In North Korea, it’s hard to know what’s real. Certainly, you can’t go looking for it. Anyone who leaves the press tour, or who walks from the few hotels where foreigners are allowed, can be detained by the police and threatened with expulsion. But even in such a controlled environment, reality asserts itself. Is reality the cluster of tall buildings within view of the main foreigners’ hotel, where long strings of bright, colored lights are switched on when the sun sets, illuminating entire blocks like some gargantuan Christmas decoration? Or is it the vast stretches of Pyongyang, by far the most developed city in impoverished North Korea, that go deathly dark at night? Is the reality along Pyongyang’s drab-butspotless main roads, the only streets that journalists normally see, with their revolutionary posters urging North Koreans to struggle toward a Stalinist paradise? Or is reality on the streets near the music center? “They’ve left very few stones unturned in North Korea,” said Anthony Brunello, a professor at Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, Florida, who has studied totalitarian propaganda methods. He said officials will go to nearly any extreme to create a system that will keep the Kim family in power.

Consumer agency softens fee limit WASHINGTON — The Obama administration’s consumer financial watchdog agency is backing off a plan to limit big upfront fees on credit cards, a move that could hit borrowers with poor credit histories especially hard. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau acknowledged Thursday that its proposal would increase costs for some cardholders and allow banks to charge more in fees. The CFPB was set up after the financial crisis to protect consumers from loans and cards with hidden fees or other traps. Thursday’s decision shows the difficult line the young agency must walk, allowing banks to make enough money so that they can continue to offer loans and cards while protecting consumers from fees that it considers abusive or deceptive.

Bill Bartmann, a financial lawyer and debt-collection executive who generally supports the agency, called it “strategic thinking” on the part of Richard Cordray, the agency’s director. “He’s picking battles, and it’s unrealistic to think you can win them all,” said Bartmann, who publishes a widely read newsletter on financial regulation. Fee limits are of particular concern to borrowers with weak credit, including so-called subprime borrowers, and the companies that seek to lend to them. Subprime borrowers tend to face much higher fees because lending to them carries more risk. Banks fear the agency will block too many fees, effectively preventing millions of Americans from establishing stronger credit so that they can qualify for mortgages or auto loans.

Safety measure Kansas University police say security cameras have had a positive effect on campus safety.


ecurity cameras sometimes have been seen as simply an invasion of privacy, a sign that Big Brother is watching. However, the cameras also have a positive impact when it comes to deterring or solving crime. A case in point is Kansas University, where dozens of security cameras have been strategically placed throughout the Lawrence campus. KU Police Chief Ralph Oliver says adding cameras over the years has helped the department do its job better; they are good witnesses. “When someone does commit a crime in front of one of those cameras, it enhances our ability to identify those suspects,” Oliver told the Journal-World this week. KU started installing security cameras seven years ago after a female student was attacked by someone with a knife near the Lied Center and another incident occurred near Gertrude Sellards Pearson and Corbin halls. Recently, KU has added dozens of cameras in areas the KU Public Safety Office thinks they are needed, and more are budgeted for the future. Don’t ask Oliver where the cameras are; that would defeat their purpose. Just know, the cameras are monitored. Big Brother? Not really. The cameras can identify suspects, provide clues in auto burglaries and deter potential criminals. Two years ago, KU police used camera evidence to identify and arrest a suspect who was peeking at women in residence hall showers. The cameras also aided officers in the arrest of three auto burglary suspects outside GSP Hall. Oliver credits video technology for a 26 percent drop in crime on the Lawrence campus since 2001. For example, total burglaries dropped from 154 in 2001 to 60 in 2011 and total theft reports dropped from 362 in 2001 to 212 in 2011. Next up in video crime fighting is the installation of cameras on the Edwards Campus in Overland Park. As Oliver says, cameras don’t catch criminals, but they are a valuable tool to help keep KU’s campus safe and secure.



“City limits may limit new limit on turnpike” was the interesting headline of a front-page story today. Kansas Department of TransYEARS portation officials had announced AGO that a four-mile strip of Interstate IN 1987 70, including two sections within the city limits, was designated to remain at 55 mph even after the new 65 mph speed limit took place for rural interstates. … However, a recent Kansas Turnpike Authority report differed on the Lawrence limit, saying that the information was still “a little unclear,” according to KTA public relations director Lisa Callahan.


Three houses near the intersection of 17th and Massachusetts were torn down today as work began on Babcock Place, a YEARS seven-story housing complex for AGO the elderly. The federally funded IN 1972 project, which was expected to cost $2,077,000 and take about a year to build, was to include 120 living units.


From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for April 13, 1912: “The Senior girls of the University have been offered the use of YEARS the Nickel Theater for Women’s AGO Dormitory benefit to be held on IN 1912 Tuesday the 23rd of this month. Mrs. Pattee, after the success of the Humane Society benefit at her theater, made the gratuitous offer which was quickly taken up by the girls. Mr. Gilbons of the Aurora theater has offered his house for the same day. Fifteen hundred tickets have been issued for the two houses and will be sold by the girls at ten cents apiece.” “The women who live on the west side of Massachusetts street, south of the Court House, today presented W. T. Carpenter with a fine umbrella. All during the snowy weather, Mr. Carpenter kept the walks clean from his home to the court house and the women wished to show their appreciation.”

Romney hasn’t captured GOP heart PITTSBURGH — Now we’re getting someplace. Over the past several days, Mitt Romney has turned his attention to the fight against Barack Obama, Rick Santorum has left the Republican race, and Newt Gingrich has signaled that he sees what’s coming and will support the eventual Republican nominee. That’s a start for the Republicans. But seeing the road ahead and knowing how to traverse it are two different things, and here both

David Shribman

At best the Republicans are in like with their apparent nominee; hardly any of them fell in love.” Santorum and Gingrich provide guideposts. Santorum leaves behind a formidable coalition of religious conservatives who are worried about social and moral corrosion and feeling the effects of the recession more sharply than Romney’s supporters. The former Massachusetts governor does not speak to their issues, nor in their idiom. They will support him in November, but not ardently.

Still seeking a conservative Now take the remarks former Speaker Gingrich made in Magnolia, Del., just the other day: “I find it very difficult to get across to the national media that when we’re out here with everyday Americans,” he said, “there is a real desire to clarify how we are going to beat Obama; there’s a real desire that we have a conservative candidate with a conservative platform.” Embedded in this Magnolia Statement are two points: The first is that the national media are out of touch. No big revelation there. The second — more striking now that Santorum has suspended his campaign and his supporters are in suspended animation — is that the Republicans still haven’t figured out how to reconcile what many of them

want (a conservative nominee) with what they likely will get (Mitt Romney). Indeed, this will be the second straight election in which the Republicans are caught in that conundrum. The last time, they nominated Sen. John McCain, every Democrat’s favorite Republican and, though he was a geographical descendant of Barry Goldwater, who ran for president from Arizona, he was not an ideological descendant of the father of modern Republican conservatism. This is a frustrating development for conservatives; Venus, for example, crosses the sun’s disk twice in a lifetime, but not twice in four years.

Another moderate Unlike the transit of Venus, though, the transit of a moderate Republican across the political sky now seems like a regular occurrence. That is especially so because Santorum, with just over $1 million in the bank, did not survive to fight even in Pennsylvania, where his prospects were not sunny despite his home-field advantage. Expect the frustration to build, not abate, now. Members of Team Santorum had every reason to think their man was ideally suited for the primaries that followed Pennsylvania. He was well positioned to sweep through Indiana, North Carolina, West Virginia, Nebraska, Arkansas and Kentucky, perhaps even to prevail in Texas, where the usual Romney advantages would have been blunted because his staff had

Studies have demonstrated that other states’ programs have had dismally low positive test rates because, in part, those receiving assistance aren’t actually using drugs at a higher rate than the general population. Are Kansans ready to support a move by their representatives to establish an unconstitutional, unnecessary program that will send more money down the drain? Erin Besson, Lawrence

To the editor: The Kansas Legislature is currently considering a bill that creates a suspicion-less drug-testing program for cash assistance recipients. House Bill 2686 mandates that onethird of individuals receiving Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) funds submit to urine tests in order to remain eligible for assistance. An almost identical program in Florida made headlines last summer when it was enjoined by a federal judge mere weeks after its initial implementation. The courts ruled a similar program created in Michigan nearly a decade ago unconstitutional, as well.

Conflicting emotions Now the Republicans have conflicting emotions. On the one hand, they can celebrate the virtual completion of the nomination process, ending a senseless bludgeoning of their standard-bearer that instead should have built him up as he triumphed over his adversaries. But at the same time there are traces of despair in the air now that Santorum is gone. At best

the Republicans are in like with their apparent nominee; hardly any of them fell in love. The Santorum faction is not the only portion of the Republican coalition that seems aimless right now. On Capitol Hill, House Republicans haven’t settled on a narrative for the November election. They thought it would be a brutal critique of Barack Obama, but top GOP strategists fear that the president has controlled the message so well in recent months that their original plans need to be redrafted.

Enthusiasm lacking With Romney the all-butcertain nominee, House Republicans may feel they will be campaigning on their own. They look at Romney’s political wardrobe and see an Eisenhower jacket (no coattails) in the closet. The greatest irony of Campaign 2012 is the high number of endorsements Romney has won — and the low level of enthusiasm he has generated. That profile matches the one the first George Bush sketched as he ran for president in 1988, but he became the only vice president since Martin Van Buren to be elected directly to the White House. So there is hope for Romney. His quest for the nomination may have ended Tuesday, but the challenges he encountered remain — and the departure of Santorum only underlines the difficulties he faces. — David M. Shribman is executive editor of the Pittsburgh PostGazette.

not bothered to establish a ground organization there, figuring Gov. Rick Perry would be unbeatable in his home state. Look at Texas and its tantalizing 155 delegates, more than in the first five contests — in Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, Florida and Nevada — combined. On paper, Romney fits roughly into the Bush profile: a wealthy politician with an Ivy League degree and an overachieving father with solid Republican bona fides. But those are surface comparisons. The two Bushes literally dug beneath the surface in the oil business and got their boots dusty on the dry plains of West Texas. Though Santorum didn’t survive until the Texas primary, the identity crisis within the GOP will. It is reminiscent of the crisis among liberal Democrats in the late 1940s after the party lost control of Capitol Hill in 1946 and had a rebellion on the right (when the Dixiecrats walked out of the 1948 Democratic National Convention) and on the left (when former Vice President Henry A. Wallace ran for president as a Progressive).

kinds of code requirements are not “bell-jar” type preservation but rather appropriate regulations to avoid spot zoning changes at particular locations where corner lots in effect act as signposts in changing the whole shape of a neighborhood. Denver, Boulder and San Diego all have solar access easements for residential neighborhoods that protect a residence from shadowing effects of neighbors that might restrict access to renewable energy by future projects. Let’s require significant projects to conform to better design requirements for historic districts as the Lawrence Preservation Alliance and the city’s own Historic Resource Commission have recommended.

Witnessing live the local university’s basketball team win two Final Four games in 2008 and one two weeks ago made it impossible to see Mass Street turn into a river of bodies.

Royals pumped for 2012 KC debut KANSAS CITY, MO. (AP) — Eric Hosmer and Mike Moustakas finally get to play a home opener for the Kansas City Royals. The two prized infielders were part of an influx of young talent that matriculated through the minor leagues last season, ultimately arriving on baseball’s biggest stage and ushering in what fans in the game’s backwater hope will be a new era of success.

This is my first one,” Moustakas said. “I absolutely appreciate it. Any time you get to play your first home game in front of your home fans, it shows that you’ve been out there working hard.” The Royals won’t have all their fresh young faces available. Outfielder Lorenzo Cain was placed on the disabled list Thursday with a strained left groin that he sustained while running into an outfield wall in Oakland earlier in the week.

Bourbon healing, hoping for strong return 220-pound sophomore from Potosi, Mo., would be held out of all contact drills. Best thing for him or not, Bourbon has not exactly loved the lack of contact. “(He’s) chomping at the bit to get out of the red jersey,” Weis said.

McCay update According to KU, Weis was informed by the NCAA following Thursday’s practice that the case for Oklahoma transfer Justin McCay would be reviewed next Wednesday and that a ruling could be expected Wednesday or Thursday. McCay, a 6-foot-2, 219-pound sophomore wide receiver from Bishop Miege High has requested a special waiver due to extenuating personal circumstances. If granted, he would be eligible to play during the 2012 season and would not have to sit out a year as is the case with most transfers. Weis said Tuesday that he Please see FOOTBALL, page 4B

hind the tremendous success our team has enjoyed during the past six years, his leadership will be missed. But we need to set a course of action that gives us the best chance to win this season without our head coach. ... We considered a number of great options to handle Paytonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s duties both internally and externally, but believe this will provide the most seamless transition for our players and our coaching staff, allowing our offensive and defensive staffs to remain intact with the fewest changes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is the same structure we used last season during Seanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s knee injury.â&#x20AC;? Vitt, who carries the titles of assistant head coach and linebackers coach, briefly stepped

in as interim head coach last season when Payton broke his leg. Vitt also was interim coach with St. Louis in 2005 before joining Payton in his first season with New Orleans in 2006. Vitt will be able to oversee the offseason training program and training camp, before stepping aside for the first third of the regular season. The NFL played no role in the decision-making process. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the Saintsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; decision,â&#x20AC;? NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said, adding the team did not have to get approval from the league to make Vitt the interim coach. The Saints did not say what their plans will be during Vittâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s six-game suspension. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will work through the

By Bill Plaschke Los Angeles Times

A high school kid dressed in a free sweatsuit and giant hip glasses strolled across a red carpet into a television studio in North Carolina on Wednesday, stared into a camera and made the failing UCLA basketball program a brilliant promise. Now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s up to Ben Howland to keep it. When top-ranked prep forward Shabazz Muhammad announced he would be joining two other top-50 recruits at UCLA next season, the Bruins were instantly transformed from mediocrity to meteor. But can Ben Howland maintain the burn? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the best Bruins recruiting haul since Kevin Love showed up on campus five years ago. It gives UCLA its best chance at a national championship since the Bruins played in the actual game more than six years ago. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great day for a coach whose tenure has been marked by recent recruiting mistakes that have led to team turmoil. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a victory, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a mandate. And with this future blessing, there is a potential curse. Ironically, by coaxing enough good players to campus to light up new Pauley Pavilion and go deep into the tournament, Howland has put his job on the line if they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. Muhammad joins fifthranked Kyle Anderson and 41st-ranked Jordan Adams, both guards, as new Bruins, with a chance that 26th-ranked Tony Parker, a center, will join them this week. The last time the coach had a team this good, in Loveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one season here, he steered four potential NBA players to a national semifinal loss to Memphis. Yet Howland has never had a team with this many incoming stars. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never dealt with this many potentially huge egos. His demanding style has never been this urgently tested by so many kids who have been so celebrated so soon. The pressure will not be on the players, as Muhammad and Anderson will barely stick around long enough for us to learn their names. They will both probably be one-and-done guys, heading for the NBA after one college season. All the heat will instead be on a coach who wants to stick around for a few more years. After a couple of lousy seasons with enough locker-room unrest that a national magazine wrote a story about it, Howland needs to prove again he not only can recruit touted players, but can also coach them. After Kentucky won a title this spring with three probably one-anddone players, Howlandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mission will be far greater than just filling new Pauley and making the NCAA Tournament. UCLA now officially needs to be UCLA again, and quickly.

offseason under this plan and when we get to training camp we will decide on a course of action for the first six weeks of the season, while Joe Vitt is unavailable,â&#x20AC;? Loomis said. The decision gives Saints players a measure of certainty and direction as Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first day of the offseason training program approaches. Still looming, however, are possible punishments for between 22 and 27 current and former Saints defenders that the NFL says participated in the crunch-for-cash bounty system that disgraced former Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams has apologized for running for the previous three seasons.



Pressure now falls on UCLA



Saints name Vitt interim coach NEW ORLEANS (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The New Orleans Saints have named Joe Vitt as interim coach, despite the top assistantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s six-game suspension for his role in the clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bounty system. The Saints had to find a oneseason replacement for head coach Sean Payton, whose season-long suspension in connection with the bounty scandal begins Monday and runs through the next Februaryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Super Bowl.

Damon, Indians reach $1.25 million deal CLEVELAND â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Cleveland Indians may have found a boost for their stagnant offense. The team has reached agreement on a $1.25 million, one-year contract with free-agent outfielder Johnny Damon, a person familiar with the deal said Thursday. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the Indians had not yet announced the agreement. Damon is 277 hits from 3,000 and was looking to catch on with a team to prolong his career. Agent Scott Boras has worked out a deal with Indians general manager Chris Antonetti, who has been looking for a player to help a Cleveland team off to a 1-4 start and batting just .176 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; worst in the majors. Damon can play both left and center field and will give manager Manny Acta another option in his lineup and outfield until Grady Sizemore returns from the disabled list. Sizemore, who underwent minor back surgery last month, is not eligible to come off the 60-day disabled list until June 3. Damon could provide a stopgap, or if he produces, the Indians may want to keep him for the entire season. The 38-year-old Damon, who confirmed the deal was near completion earlier in a text message to the AP, can make another $1.4 million in performance bonuses based on plate appearances. Now that the agreement is in place, Damon must pass a physical. And although heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in excellent shape, Damon will likely need some time to get ready to play after not going to training camp. He hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t faced major league pitching since last season. Damon played with Tampa Bay â&#x20AC;&#x201D; his sixth AL team â&#x20AC;&#x201D; in 2011. He batted .261 with 16 homers and 73 RBIs in 150 games, 135 as the clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s designated hitter. The Indians are Damonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fourth team in four years.


CSU introduces Eustachy FORT COLLINS, COLO. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Colorado State introduced Larry Eustachy as its basketball coach Thursday. The 56-year-old Eustachy comes to the Rams from Southern Mississippi, where he directed the Golden Eagles to a 25-9 record â&#x20AC;&#x201D; 11-5 in Conference USA â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first NCAA Tournament appearance since 1991. Southern Mississippi was 142-113 in eight seasons under Eustachy. During 19 seasons, he is 402-258 at Idaho, Utah State, Iowa State and Southern Mississippi. Eustachy, the 19th coach at Colorado State, replaces Tim Miles, who left the Rams on March 24 to take the job at Nebraska. Miles led the Rams this season to the NCAA Tournament.

UCF to appear before NCAA ORLANDO, FLA. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Central Florida will appear before the NCAAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Committee on Infractions hoping it will accept self-imposed sanctions the university has implemented in response to allegations that the Knightsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; football and basketball programs were involved with runners for sports agents, and cash payments and gifts to recruits. The hearing is today in Indianapolis. UCFâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposed penalties include probation, vacation of menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball victories, and reduction of scholarships.

Defense sets tone in FSHS victory By Benton Smith

Piling up strikeouts on the mound and pounding extra-base hits to the outfield alleys are a couple of ways to win a baseball game. Free State High did neither Thursday, but its less-than-brute style still proved overbearing in a 6-1 home victory over Shawnee Mission North. Starting pitcher Jacob Caldwell allowed just one hit in six innings of astute throwing, while the Firebirds set a season high for runs, even though all nine of their hits were singles. Some bands of afternoon rain momentarily placed the game in limbo, but FSHS and coach Mike Hill couldn’t have been more thrilled to get it in. “I thought the kids were great today,” Hill said, “particularly Jacob on the mound.” A shrewd approach made Caldwell unhittable through five innings. In fact, the junior was perfect against the Indians’ first 15 hitters, a stretch in which he recorded just two of his four strikeouts but continually forced SMN hitters to pop the ball into the gray sky or hit slow rollers through the wet infield. Two days after seeing FSHS senior hurler JD Prochaska dominate on

hit Brock Burrows, giving SMN (1-10) its first base runner of the game. Free State’s starter followed that blip by striking out Joel Steelman and getting Ryan Theis to ground the ball to second base. However, Burrow beat the force at second base and both he and Theis advanced to scoring position on an error on the ensuing throw to first. Indians leadoff hitter Matthew Maynard then

broke up the no-hitter and shutout with an RBI single. But Caldwell retired the next two batters to complete his six-inning show. “Anytime I started to struggle,” Caldwell said, “I just tried to slow it down and take it easy. And my defense was amazing behind me.” Firebirds third baseman Cameron Pope and shortstop Anthony Miele both showed off their throwing arms on the left side of the infield, and the defensive highlight of the game came in the fifth, when second baseman Ryan Cantrell perfectly tracked a blooper into center field and made a diving snag to keep Caldwell’s perfect game intact. Offensively, freshman left fielder Joel Spain was the only Firebird with multiple hits (three singles), but a hit apiece from sophomores Joe Dineen and Pope, juniors Lee McMahon and Miele and seniors Montana Samuels and Prochaska were enough to make a difference for Free State (3-6). Pope drove in the first run of the game in the second, and McMahon scored after an errant pickoff attempt by SMN starting pitcher Tucker Bartlett. McMahon drove in a run to make it 3-0 in the third before Dineen,

Samuels and Prochaska delivered consecutive RBI singles in the fourth. Prochaska said FSHS, which began the season 0-5, is settling in offensively of late. “The first couple of games we were kind of tense at the plate,” the senior said. “We’ve calmed down.” With wins in three of their last four games, the Firebirds had only totaled two runs in both of their previous victories. Caldwell said the fiverun cushion was a nice change. “We’ve been trying very hard in practice to get the bats going,” the pitcher said. “They finally started to work today, and we strung some hits together and got some runs.” While Hill said defense remains the team’s strength, he thinks some offensive progress is slowly being made. “That’s the area where we have a lot of room for improvement,” Hill said, “and there’s still a lot of things we need to do better.” At 5:30 p.m. Monday, FSHS plays at Leavenworth.

like I did here at Kansas,” said Morningstar, who started 20 of 50 games for the 66ers, good for 27.7 minutes a game. He hit 42.2 percent of his shots (38.3 percent of his threes) while dishing 106 assists against 69 turnovers. He also had 2.2 boards per outing. “I don’t know if I’m on track for the NBA. I think I’m on track to keep playing ball the way I like to play ball,” Morningstar said. “I’m not setting my NBA sights too high. I’m giving myself a chance. A lot of guys are trying to do what I do, so I’m not going to say I’m going to make it and nobody else will. “There were a record number of call-ups this year — 50 they said (from NBADL rosters),” the former Free State High standout added. “Unfortunately I wasn’t one of them. A couple of my teammates were, but that’s why you have next year and the year after that and year after that ... to prove yourself.” New KU assistant coach Norm Roberts grinned when asked about coaching Morningstar’s losing fantasy camp team on Thursday. “Wayne had a couple

threes that just didn’t go down. Teahan didn’t guard the way he needed to. I’ve got to be honest ... Brady Morningstar was playing that NBA defense — none,” Roberts said with a laugh. “It really hurt us.” Morningstar said the campers, who paid $4,995 ($2,995 for Williams Fund members) for a weekend of basketball in Lawrence, were certain to have a great time. “I think it’s great for them to see how spoiled we are for a couple days and see how we do things around Kansas basketball,” Morningstar said. Of the camp, which continues with a batch of games today and Saturday, Roberts said: “I think it’s great. The only thing we worry about is we don’t need any of the older guys taking charges on Thomas Robinson at halfcourt. You have to be careful with that. I think it’s a great deal. You will have some guys be very, very competitive and other guys just want to have a good time.” Roberts, who worked on Self’s first KU staff, then went to St. John’s as head coach for six years and took a year off before working as an assistant at Florida this past season, said he’s received a warm welcome back at KU. “I’ve seen people I’d not seen in a while. Everybody’s been real nice,”

He’s ready to hit the road recruiting. “We’ll be out not this weekend but next weekend. We get to evaluate again in April. It’s great they brought the (April evaluation) period back,” Roberts said of the NCAA. “You can get out and see players.” O Tourney in Olathe this year: The Jayhawk Invitational will be held April 27-29 in Olathe, Shawnee and Gardner this year. It had been held in Lawrence the past 11 years. “Thanks to tremendous

support and growth the Jayhawk has experienced over the years, the tournament will move to a new home in the Kansas City South Metro area in order to stay in line with some of the changes coming to grassroots events,” read a statement on the official tourney website. “The Jayhawk will still feature the same top-notch teams, facilities and exposure. In addition to all of the great things teams have come to expect from the Jayhawk Invitational, the new location in suburban Kansas City gives much better access to the facilities, additional lodging, dining, en-

tertainment and shopping opportunities that the city can provide.” O Tulsa talk: Tulsa coach Danny Manning officially named former KU players Brett Ballard and Steve Woodberry and former KU manager Justin Bauman as members of his staff on Thursday. Bauman will be director of basketball operations; Ballard and Woodberry fulltime assistant coaches. Ballard was Baker University head coach the past two seasons, Woodberry an assistant at Missouri State and Bauman an assistant at San Francisco.

sensed the uncertainty was weighing on McCay, and his teammates said they were pulling for him. “I’m hoping he gets to play,” said senior receiver Kale Pick. “That would be nice for him. I haven’t really asked him too much about it because I don’t know too much about it. But he’s a pretty talkative kid. He likes to joke around and have fun, and hopefully he gets the chance to compete this year.”

Movers and shakers? Weis said recently that a number of players continued to move their way up and down the depth chart during spring drills. In addition to general performance, one of the biggest reasons for player movement has been depth at any given position. Senior left tackle Tanner Hawkinson, for instance, has been a mainstay at his spot, largely because Weis and his coaching staff don’t see any other left tackles on Hawkinson’s level. “He wouldn’t have lost the position anyway,” Weis said. “But he is not being threatened.” At other positions, competition runs deep, with wide receiver, linebacker and tight end being three of the more competitive positions. That’s about as far as Weis would take it, though. Asked to name a few of the players who have stood out, KU’s firstyear coach grinned and said, “I’d have to shoot ya.” DP and D.J. staying put While position switches remain possible on both sides of the ball, Weis spoke with clarity when asked if he had considered moving senior wide receivers Daymond Patterson and D.J. Beshears to cornerback to add depth to the Jayhawks’ secondary. “Those guys are going to play receiver,” he said. “I’m not taking the first two or three receivers and (making) them backup corners.” That’s not to say he wouldn’t consider it should the need pop up. Both Patterson and Beshears have experience at Kansas on defense. “Now if you get depleted during the season, then I’m not opposed to taking a guy and playing him on offense and defense,” Weis continued. “I’m not opposed to that at all. But first things first, they have to settle into the position they play. If we get desperate and there’s a receiver that can help us as a nickel back then he’ll play nickel back; ask (former New England Patriot) Troy Brown. It’s just like goal line right now; when we put goal line in on offense, I guarantee there will be some guys playing defense that will be on goal line on offense, they’re just not there right now.”

KANSAS CITY ROYALS STARTING PITCHER LUKE HOCHEVAR DELIVERS against the Los Angeles Angels on April 7, in Anaheim, Calif. Hochevar will take the mound today in the Royals’ home opener against the Cleveland Indians.


Salvador Perez is already recuperating from surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee. The injuries haven’t put a damper on the spirit surrounding the Royals, though. Part of that has to do with an encouraging road trip to start the season. The Royals went into Los Angeles to face Albert Pujols and the mighty Angels in the official opener to the season. After getting blanked their first time out, they rallied behind some stout starting pitching to take the next two games and the series. Kansas City dropped a 1-0 decision in the series opener against the Athletics, but rebounded behind newly acquired starter Jonathan Sanchez to take Game 2. The Royals were on the cusp of taking another series when they took a one-run lead in the top of the 12th inning of the finale Wednesday afternoon, only for closer Jonathan Broxton to blow the game in spectacular fashion. He plunked A’s cleanup hitter Yoenis Cespedes to load the bases, and then drilled Jonny Gomes on his very next pitch to send home the winning run. “He just lost command of his fastball, but he’s a

two-time All-Star,” said Royals manager Ned Yost, dismissing any notion that Broxton would be affected by the late-game meltdown. Yost also dismissed any notion the rest of the Royals would have a hangover. Kansas City had the day off Thursday, though a workout at Kauffman Stadium had to be squeezed in while rain pelted the metropolitan area. Once players cleared the field, the tarp was rolled into place over the infield — a tough way to head into the opener, if you believe in karma. The day off allowed the Royals to reset after the way their trip came to an end. “We had our opportunities,” outfielder Alex Gordon said, “but 3-3 on the road isn’t bad and I know we’ll win those games down the road.” Luke Hochevar will get the assignment of the home opener for Kansas City after a dazzling first turn in the rotation. The former first-round pick allowed two runs on five hits in 6 1/3 innings against the Angels, outdueling Dan Haren in a 6-3 victory. Even though Hochevar is considered the ace of the rotation, Yost had him start the second game of the season because he wanted Hochevar on the mound for the home opener.

“It’s the first time we play at home, in front of our home crowd, at our ballpark. That’s a special game regardless of where it is in the season,” said Hochevar, who had a breakout campaign last season. “I don’t think you can ignore it. I think you embrace it.” Hochevar doesn’t think he’ll be rattled by the assignment, even though a bunch of festivities are planned before the game — including the awarding of Gordon’s first career gold glove. “It’s a special day. All the stuff that goes on before the game, the fly over — if it doesn’t give you goose bumps, you may not have a pulse,” Hochevar said. “That’s why I embrace it.” Yost doesn’t necessarily have quite the same take on the home opener. The sometimes surly manager has been through enough of them that he’d rather get on with the grind that comes with a 162-game season. Yost isn’t one for pomp and pageantry. In fact, he bristled when asked for a favorite opening-day memory. “I just want opening day by us. I just want the first opening day, get it done with, so we can get about our business,” Yost said. “You just want to start in with the process of playing every day. Once it’s over, everybody’s glad. Now you can get down to it.”

K.C. places Cain on disabled list KANSAS CITY, MO. (AP) — Royals outfielder Lorenzo Cain has been placed on the disabled list with a left groin strain, taking him out of the lineup as the team returns to Kansas City for its home opener. Cain hurt the groin when he bumped into the wall while chasing a

flyball off the bat of Oakland's Daric Barton in the second inning of a 3-0 victory Tuesday night. Cain was held out of the lineup Wednesday and placed on the DL on Thursday. Kansas City plays its home opener today against the Cleveland Indians.

Cain took over in center field for Melky Cabrera, who was traded to San Francisco in the offseason. Cain had two hits in 15 atbats and struck out five times to start the season. Jarrod Dyson will be recalled from Triple-A Omaha to take Cain's place.

Smyly’s debut a success ————

Rookie pitcher helps Detroit trip Tampa Bay Los Angeles

The Associated Press

Tigers 7, Rays 2 DETROIT — When Drew Smyly imagined what his major league debut would be like, he never pictured anything as strange as the real thing. Just a few days after struggling in his only Triple-A start, the 22-yearold looked far from ready for the big leagues when Tampa Bay immediately loaded the bases on two walks and a single. “It’s been an exciting week, but I was struggling,” Smyly said after Detroit’s win Thursday. “I couldn’t get into a groove, but once I got the bases loaded, I told myself that I had to settle down and get out of it.” Smyly did just that, getting Jeff Keppinger to pop out, and then striking out Ben Zobrist and Sean Rodriguez to escape the inning. “We had the game right there for the taking in the first inning, and we chose not to take it,” Rays manager Joe Maddon said. “The kid was obviously nervous, so I felt good with Kepp up there. “But he gets the pop-up and then two punch-outs, and we get nothing,” Maddon said. “It’s tough to not get anything out of the inning, because the kid looked comfortable after that.” Smyly ended up allowing one run on four hits in four-plus innings. He walked three and struck out four. “I had an awesome time out there,” he said. “Obviously, only going four innings isn’t good. You want to go deep into the game, but I threw too many pitches. With everything going on, though, I feel pretty good about it.” Brennan Boesch provided more than enough offense for the Tigers, driving in four runs on his

Twins 10, Angels 9 MINNEAPOLIS — Justin Morneau hit a two-run, go-ahead homer in the eighth inning, and Minnesota rallied from six runs down to beat Los Angeles. Joe Mauer went deep, too, hitting a three-run shot off Dan Haren in the fifth that cut into a 6-0 lead the Angels built against Francisco Liriano. Every Twins batter had at least one of the team’s 20 hits, enough to make up for the 14 men left on base, including eight in scoring position. Denard Span had four hits, including an infield single that tied it at 6 in the seventh inning. On the play, he reached first at the same time as Scott Downs, stomping down on top of the reliever’s foot with his cleat. Downs right ankle rolled awkwardly and he left the game what the team called a bruise.

Helping the Cubs improve to 2-5, Garza (10) struck out nine and walked two — both in the first two innings. He induced Cesar Izturis to hit into an inning-ending double play in the second, starting a stretch in which he retired 16 of 17 batters. After Nori Aoki reached on Garza’s throwing error with two outs in the ninth, Garza was removed after 119 pitches. Milwaukee

Nationals 3, Reds 2, 10 innings WASHINGTON — Ryan Zimmerman scored on Alfredo Simon’s wild pitch with two outs in the 10th inning, helping the Nationals extend their best start since moving to Washington. Simon (0-1) hit Zimmerman with a pitch leading off the 10th, and one out later, Jayson Werth singled. A groundout pushed the runners to second and third with two outs. With Roger Bernadina at the plate, Simon threw an 0-1 pitch in the dirt, and Zimmerman slid under the tag after catcher Devin Mesoraco collected the ball and threw to Simon.

Giants 4, Rockies 2 DENVER — Madison Bumgarner scattered four hits over 7 1/3 innings and took a no-hit bid into the sixth in San Francisco’s win over Colorado. At 49, Jamie Moyer failed in his second attempt to become the oldest pitcher to win a major league game. Moyer (0-2) surrendered four runs, two of them earned, and eight hits in 5 1/3 innings. The age difference between the starting pitchers — 26 years and 256 days — was the largest since Satchel Paige faced Bill Monbouquette in 1965.

Endless love for Lionel Richie tonight What year is it? On “Mad Men,” it’s 1966. “Magic City” has just welcomed New Year’s Day, 1959. But out here in the “real” world, 1984 is breaking out all over. And I’m not just talking about a new album from Madonna. “Who Do You Think You Are?” (7 p.m., NBC) repeats a segment concerning Lionel Richie’s search for his roots. CBS presents “Lionel Richie and Friends — In Concert” at 8 p.m. Richie was red-hot in 1984, riding a wave of popular hits on the still evolving MTV network. He sang “All Night Long” as the closing act of the 1984 Olympic Games in Los Angeles, an overthe-top performance featuring some kind of spaceship and produced by former Monkee Michael Nesmith. To what do we owe this Lionel revival? This embarrassment of Richie(s)? Tonight’s CBS concert is presented by the Academy of Country Music and features some of today’s hottest country stars performing as solo acts or in duet with the former Commodore and father of Nicole. Look for Jason Aldean, the Band Perry, Luke Bryan, Sara Evans, Lady Antebellum, Martina McBride, Jennifer Nettles, Rascal Flatts, Kenny Chesney, Tim McGraw and Kenny Rogers. American country artists aren’t the only big fans of the man behind “Dancing on the Ceiling.” Richie is apparently huge in the Arab world, having performed to sellout crowds in Morocco, Dubai, Qatar and Libya, where he performed in 2006 for that nation’s dictator, Moammar Gadhafi.

Tonight’s other highlights

A maker of blinds pulls some strings on “Undercover Boss” (7 p.m., CBS).

A search for lost marital bliss on “The Finder” (7 p.m., Fox).

A cynical American (Humphrey Bogart) lets go of an old flame (Ingrid Bergman) and rediscovers his idealism in the 1942 romance “Casablanca” (7 p.m., TCM).

we visit every other weekend. We argued, and now she won’t talk to me. Nancy’s roommate called last night to warn me that Nancy is looking to sue for visitation rights with my son. This is astonishing, and I worry that she has some issues that should be addressed, but I don’t want this to create a bigger family problem. My mother is on Nancy’s side, and my father won’t talk about it. I’m about ready to cut ties with all three of them. — Bad Sheep Sister

Dear Annie: I have always had a rocky relationship with my older sister, “Nancy.” She’s lived with our parents her entire life, and even after she married, she convinced her husband to move in with them. Her marriage didn’t last long. Nancy has always been a drama queen. At my wedding, she threw a tantrum about how horrible her life was because her little sister was getting married and she was single again. My parents made me apologize, as always, for something over which I had no control. Last year, my husband and I had our first child. Mutual friends told us Nancy is showing pictures of our son, claiming he’s hers. She even has his photo, as her son, on her Facebook page. It isn’t the first time. Nancy is a professional
