KBA president resigns Bioscience leader Tom Thornton quits $265K job amid investigation, criticism

THE VENTURE ACCELERATOR BUILDING is under construction at the Kansas Bioscience Park in Olathe. The 38,723 square-foot facility is customized with wet labs and office space. Tom Thornton, the first president and CEO of the KBA, resigned Friday, giving no reason for leaving the $265,000-per-year job.

Governor remains sharply critical, even as others praise Thornton’s leadership By Scott Rothschild

TOPEKA — The leader of a high-profile economic development agency resigned Friday in the face of a criminal investigation and criticism from Gov. Sam Brownback. But Tom Thornton’s sudden departure as president and CEO of the Kansas Bioscience Authority didn’t stop Brownback’s attack on the KBA’s leadership. Brownback called for an “independently overseen forensic audit of KBA,” and a new president and CEO “who has no ties to the current regime.” Last week, the KBA agreed to hire a firm to conduct a forensic audit, but Brownback has said he still isn’t satisfied.




Thornton silent Thornton, the first and only president and CEO of the KBA, gave no reason for leaving the $265,000-per-year job. He was hired in 2006 to lead Kansas’ bioscience development efforts but has been under fire for several months.

Funded through tax dollars collected from the payrolls of existing companies, the KBA is responsible for spending $581 million to lure bioscience companies and research to the state. Sen. Susan Wagle, R-Wichita, and chairwoman of the Senate Commerce Committee, criticized Thornton’s salary and bonuses. During committee hearings, Wagle alleged Thornton had conflicts of interest in his agency dealings. Also, questions were raised about Thornton’s wife who also had worked at the agency and made more than $100,000 per year. KBA officials, led by board chairman John Carlin, a former Democratic Kansas governor, defended Thornton’s salary as appropriate for

Here are the numbers that Cans for the Community are looking at:

The convergence of Earth Day and a high price for aluminum has the volunteers at Cans for the Community setting the bar high for collections this month. The organization, which gives the recycling proceeds to charities, hopes to collect 5,000 pounds of cans this month. The amount is far more than what has been collected in the past. “We are trying to come up


with something different to do in honor of Earth Day. So the idea of 5,000 pounds was something we had never ever done before,” said Cans for the Community volunteer Linda Klinker, who refers to herself as the “Crazy Can Lady.” “We have a long way to go.”

Community’s help sought in collecting 5,000 pounds of cans By Christine Metz

The house at 711 Conn. is a mess. Everybody seems to agree on that, but Lawrence city commissioners at their Tuesday evening meeting will debate whether it ought to be torn down. The city’s Historic Resources Commission has denied a request to tear down the 2.5story home built in 1910. But now a group that wants to build a sixplex apartment building on the site is appealing the decision to the City Commission. “It has significant damage,” said Michael Tubbs, a Lawrence attorney for the project. “There is a termite infestation. The foundation is in need of replacement. There is water damage.” The house had tenants in it up until August, when the city condemned the property and

Doctors, home health agencies and consumer advocates are in an uproar about a new “face-toface” rule that aims to curb fraud and abuse in Medicare. They say the rule is just making it harder for seniors to access home health care. Under the requirement, which took effect April 1, Medicare beneficiaries need to have a face-toface visit with their doctors 90 days before or 30 days after starting home health services in order for the home health agencies to be reimbursed. And patients who have been in hospice care for six months must have a face-to-face visit to continue to receive care. Under the old law, doctors didn’t have to see their patients to prescribe home health care. “It basically boils down to limiting care for the patient,” said Please see RULE, page 4A

Ex-lawmaker who helped start KBA doesn’t want to see agency derailed By Scott Rothschild

T O P E K A — Former state Rep. Kenny Wilk, who was the co-author of legislation that established the Kansas Bioscience Authority, said he hopes the controversy surrounding the agency doesn’t damage its mission. On Friday, Tom Thornton, the KBA’s president and chief executive officer, resigned. The Johnson County District Attorney’s Office is reportedly investigating the agency; a state senator continues to raise questions about spending; and Gov. Sam Brownback has publicly criticized leaders at the KBA. “It is essential we get to the bottom of the recently raised issues that prompted a criminal investigation,” Brownback said.

Woman denies making ‘true threat’ against doctor By Roxana Hegeman Associated Press Writer

WICHITA — A Kansas woman accused of sending a threatening letter to a doctor planning to do abortions in Wichita said Friday she never intended to make a “true threat.” The affidavit filed in federal court by 44-year-old Angel Dillard offers the first glimpse of her defense strategy since the Justice Department filed a civil complaint against her last week. The lawsuit accuses the Valley Center woman of violating a law protecting abortion clinics when she mailed a letter to Dr. Mila Means after learning the physician was training to offer abortion services at her Wichita practice. Dillard’s affidavit was in a motion filed Friday by her attorney, Donald McKinney, seeking a one-day delay of next week’s hearing on the government’s request for a temporary restraining order to keep Dillard away from the doctor and her clinic. U.S. District Judge J. Thomas Marten set a new hearing for Wednesday. Dillard said in her affidavit that she has never been to Means’ clinic or home and has never met the doctor and would not know her if she saw her. She said she had no contact with Means either before or after she sent the letter, has not publicly protested against her and had no intention of doing so. She said she has not protested at an abortion clinic for about 20 years. “I do not personally believe in acts of violence against anyone, including abortion

He said he doesn’t know what the Johnson County investigation is focused on. The district attorney’s office has refused to comment. In 2004, Wilk, along with former state Sen.

Interim CEO named Thornton’s resignation announcement came after a KBA board meeting Friday. David Vranicar, who has been president of the KBA’s commercialization arm, was named the agency’s interim president and CEO. “The state can be rightfully proud of the organization Tom helped build,” Carlin, the board chairman, said in a prepared statement. “He assembled and guided a stellar team of professionals who represent an innovative, independent agency that is envied by many other states across the nation. Tom will remain in contact, which will be helpful to us in the transition process. We are grateful for his service and wish him well in his future endeavors.” On Friday, Sen. Wagle said Thornton’s resignation “resolves only one of the problems my committee has been addressing.” She declined to provide more details, citing the criminal investigation. “There is clearly a problem within the agency,” she said. “We have a lot more questions.” Wagle’s Commerce Committee is scheduled to continue meetings on the KBA when the Legislature returns to session April 27. In his resignation letter to Carlin, Thornton said, “The KBA is hailed across the Community collected last year.

country as a model for bioscience development and the envy of other states.” Thornton reviewed some of the KBA’s accomplishments, including helping secure the National Bio and Agro-Defense Facility, which will be built in Manhattan. He said Kansas has become positioned as an international leader in animal health research while gaining national recognition in drug and bioenergy research. He did not give a reason for his resignation and ended the letter with the state’s motto, “Ad astra per aspera,” which means “To the stars through difficulties.”

No severance deal Wagle said she wanted to know how much Thornton’s severance package would cost taxpayers. In an interview with the Journal-World, Carlin said there was no severance package, and that pay to Thornton ended Friday. When asked why Thornton resigned, Carlin said he didn’t feel comfortable commenting on that. He said Thornton has another employment opportunity that may be announced later. Carlin said Thornton was in high demand. “I’m not surprised that somebody else is going to be wanting his services,” he said. Democratic legislators have said Brownback wants control over the KBA, an allegation that the governor has said isn’t true. Carlin declined to speculate. “The governor has certainly shared some thoughts and concerns, but the focus right now is getting these rumors cleared up,” Carlin said. Carlin said the board would probably hold off starting a search for a permanent president and CEO until after the audit and investigation have been completed. He said he had full confidence in the KBA’s staff. “One of the good things is Tom put a great team together,” he said. — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

Revenue projections cut $32M


Gadhafi forces attack rebel city Moammar Gadhafi’s troops launched a powerful assault with tanks and rockets Friday on Misrata, the last major rebel city in western Libya, sending residents fleeing to increasingly crowded safe areas of the city that are still out of the Libyan leader’s reach, witnesses said. Misrata has become emblematic of the limits of NATO’s air campaign, with the alliance’s top military commander saying he needs more precision attack aircraft to avoid civilian casualties in urban combat. President Barack Obama acknowledged in an interview that the two-month-old civil war has reached a stalemate. After a weeklong flurry of high-level diplomatic meetings in Europe and the Middle East, rebel leaders complained that the international community is not doing enough to keep Gadhafi’s troops at bay. In the capital of Tripoli, a government official denied Libyan troops are shelling Misrata and said they are only taking defensive actions. Friday’s fighting in Misrata — even as a NATO foreign ministers meeting in Berlin debated handling of the Libya air campaign — highlight rebel worries that international intervention won’t come fast enough or will be ineffective. 2 | BEIRUT

Tear gas, batons thwart march on capital Tens of thousands of protesters shouting “We want freedom!” made a bold march on the Syrian capital Friday, but security forces beat them back with tear gas and batons as the country’s monthlong uprising swelled to the largest and most widespread gatherings to date, witnesses and activists said. The violence outside of Damascus was the only major unrest reported during protests in several Syrian cities Friday, with security forces generally watching from the sidelines instead of cracking down. The change suggests President Bashar Assad may be trying to minimize deaths that have served to further outrage and mobilize the protesters. More than 200 people have been killed in the government crackdown in the past four weeks, according to Syria’s main pro-democracy group. There were no reports of live ammunition fired directly at protesters Friday. The protests have forced Assad to reach out to local leaders and offer concessions — highly unusual steps for an authoritarian leader who keeps a tight grip on power with a small coterie of family and advisers. 3 | ARKANSAS

Powerful spring storms kill 9 Powerful spring storms roared through parts of the South on Friday, toppling trees, smashing buildings and killing at least nine people, including two sets of parents and children who were huddled together as the winds raged outside their homes. It was the deadliest storm of the season so far. Several tornadoes accompanied the onslaught, but much of the damage was attributed to straight-line winds — sudden, violent downbursts that struck with hurricane force in the middle of the night. Forecasters warned of approaching danger as much as three days earlier, but the winds up to 80 mph and repeated lightning strikes cut a path of destruction across a region so accustomed to violent weather that many people ignored the risk — or slept through it. The storms began late Thursday in Oklahoma, where at least five tornadoes touched down and two people were killed. The system then pushed into Arkansas, killing seven more. Dozens of others were hurt. By midday Friday, the storms marched into Tennessee, Louisiana and Mississippi. At least three tornadoes touched down in Mississippi, causing widespread damage but only one serious injury.

TOPEKA — Kansas officials on Friday predicted solid economic growth through June 2012, even as they cut the state’s revenue projections for the same period by $32 million and possibly complicated the Legislature’s budget debate. Fiscal forecasters said the new numbers represent good news because some growth in tax collections will partially offset losses in revenues caused by changes in the federal tax code. Had it not been for the federal changes, the state forecasters said, they’d have increased revenue projections. The changes in the projections are relatively small. The state still expects to take in almost $5.8 billion in general revenues during the current fiscal year and a little more than that during the fiscal year that begins July 1. “We are pretty optimistic that we’re on the right track right now, and I see good things for the future of Kansas in revenues,” said State Budget Director Steve Anderson, one of the forecasters.

Although there is no formal written policy on this matter, there was a very strong effort some years ago to make sure the majority of board members aren’t alumni of a single state university. Some, particularly at K-State, thought KU had too many. Regents are not paid a salary, and if they are to do a good job, they need to know what is going on at each of the schools where they are expected to provide guidance. In recent years, it has become evident they don’t know, or that they have relied on university leaders who tell them everything is great. Some system needs to be developed so regents perform as regents, not just names on a letterhead. It’s an extremely important position that calls for, or demands, extremely able, committed and knowledgeable individuals. It is up to the governor to demonstrate the importance he places on higher education by nominating highly qualified individuals for the three soonto-be-open positions.

School gardens attract funding to establish compost programs The Kansas Department of Health and Environment announced Thursday that three Lawrence schools have received $1,875 in grants for a composting program. They are: ● Hillcrest — $375. ● Sunset Hill — $750. ● West Junior High School — $750. The schools have partnered with the Community Mercantile Education Foundation as part of a “Growing Food, Growing Health” project and have started gardens. The goal is to change the way students interact with food. Nancy

These grants to schools not only have the direct benefits of conserving landfill space, natural resources and energy, they teach students lessons that can be practiced at home and for a lifetime.” — Dr. Robert Moser, KDHE secretary O’Connor, director of education and outreach at The Merc and project coordinator,

BETHANY STADALMAN OF DOUGLAS COUNTY VISITING NURSES, Rehabilitation and Hospice Care keeps a watchful eye on Clyde Rice, 75, as the two work on Rice’s balance during a therapy session on Friday in his Lawrence home. Under new requirements, which took effect April 1, a Medicare beneficiary must have a face-to-face meeting with a doctor 90 days before or 30 days after starting in-home health care treatments in order for the home health care agencies to be reimbursed.

Rejection of rule Douglas County VNA is working to make sure its clients and doctors understand and comply with the new rules. But, there are home health agencies that aren’t accepting clients if they haven’t had the face-to-face visit. Kelly, of Kansas Home Care, said many home health agencies are operating on a negative margin as it is, so they can’t provide services without getting reimbursed. “It just boils down to less access to what is proven to be a cost-effective care,” Kelly said. “I know firsthand how expensive having a parent or relative in a facility costs. It’s much more cost-effective to care for them at home. Now, here’s another roadblock to

Defendant in shooting will face lesser charge

McLouth celebrates Patriots Day today

A Douglas County judge ruled that a 26-year-old Lawrence man will face trial on a lesser charge in connection with a 2008 shooting. District Judge Paula Martin ruled Friday that testimony from a preliminary hearing was insufficient to bind the defendant, Dustin D. Walker, for trial with the original charge of intentional aggravated battery. The charges stemmed from an April 2008 shooting of Stephen Patterson in the 2500 block of Redbud Lane. According to testimony last week, Walker told police that Patterson had a gun, charged him during an altercation in an apartment, and that the gun discharged during the struggle. He testified he learned later that Patterson was shot in the leg. After considering the testimony, Martin ruled that sufficient evidence existed to hold Walker for trial on a lesser charge of reckless aggravated battery. Walker also faces a trial scheduled to begin Monday as the defendant in an unrelated shooting that occurred Dec. 5, 2010, at South Pointe Apartments, 2310 W. 26th St.

McLouth residents will be painting the town red, white and blue today with their 13th annual Kansas Greatest Patriots Day Parade. A children’s parade will start at 11 a.m. and the main parade at 1 p.m. along Union Street in downtown McLouth. The Fort Riley Mounted Color Guard will be in the parade, along with people portraying George and Martha Washington and Paul Revere. All veterans are welcome to ride on the veterans trolley in the parade. Festivities start with a pancake feed from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. at the McLouth fire station, 104 W. Lucy St. McLouth Medical Center, 313 S. Union, will have a health fair from 8 a.m. to noon as well. Other attractions are a basket raffle, bake sale, taste table and cookbook sale at McLouth Public Library, as well as a military memorabilia LAWRENCE display, homemade ice cream, a petting zoo, vendors and crafts. A mountain men encampment group also will be doing demonstrations.

cost-effective care. So, that’s where we are at.” There are 140 licensed home health agencies in Kansas that care for about 30,000 patients. Of those, 56 percent are on Medicare. Kelly said home health agencies and advocates are working to get the regulation, which was part of the Affordable Care Act, repealed. Anyone who hasn’t been able to access home health services can call Kelly at 785-478-3640. The National Association for Home Care and Hospice surveyed about 3,200 of its members in late February. The results were released in March. It found: ● 70 percent — would refuse to take on clients if they hadn’t had a face-to-face visit. ● 72 percent — said doctors complained about the rule and 66 percent said doctors were confused. ● 47 percent — said the doctors indicated they would refer them to other care settings. Nancy Rios, of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, said nobody was available to comment on the rule Friday. — Health reporter Karrey Britt can be reached at 832-7190.

LAW ENFORCEMENT REPORT • A 60-year-old Chicago resident was charged Friday with driving under the influence of alcohol and endangering a child. Lawrence police were called to the parking lot of the 23rd Street Brewery, 3512 Clinton Parkway, on April 1 to investigate a possible drunken driver in the parking lot. Police said they found Cornell H. Fleischer, the defendant, in a vehicle with a small child, later determined to be related to Fleischer. Fleischer was arrested on the charges, which are both misdemeanors.

This is especially true in rural areas where doctors may be more than two hours away. “We are their eyes and ears in the home,” she said. “We are their medical connection and we’ve built up that relationship and this trust with the physician.

Visiting Russian delegates share impressions about U.S. By Andy Hyland

A group of Russian delegates visiting Lawrence expressed positive feelings about American open government and the friendly people but were concerned about American perceptions about Russia. The delegates from Russian universities are visiting Kansas University and took time this week to discuss their impressions of America. The group is here as part of the Open World Program, which seeks to introduce current and future Russian and Eurasian decision-makers and to meet their American counterparts. Speaking through a translator, some members of the group said they were struck by the open access they had to government facilities.

“If we wanted to do something like this in our country, it would take an immense amount of effort to do this,” said Bronyus Aysmontas, dean of the distance learning department of Moscow City University of Psychology and Education. He also said he found the American food to be more unhealthy than what you typically find in Russia. “I may be mistaken,” he said, “but unhealthy eating seems to be a national issue.” While in Lawrence, they lived with host families, and members of the KU department of Russian, East European and Eurasian studies helped take the group around the region. They met with leaders from KU, the city of Lawrence, Johnson County Community College and Park University in Parkville, Mo. They expressed frustration


declared it unfit for habitation. But several East Lawrence residents have said the house is in the condition that it is because the owners have let it get to that point. In City Hall circles, that is called demolition by neglect. “Demolition by neglect is extremely frustrating because it sets a terrible precedent,” said Deron Belt, president of the East Lawrence Neighborhood Association. “It is telling property owners that if you don’t like the house, it is OK to neglect it because the city eventually will let you tear it down.” The home at 711 Conn. has to go through a special process before it can be demolished because it is within the “environs” of a property on a historic register. Historic resources commissioners in February denied an application to tear down the home. The city’s staff had provided a recommendation that the property could legally be torn down and still comply with the state’s historic preservation laws, but staff members also said they did believe the house was a case of demolition by neglect. Tubbs declined to comment on the allegations that the property owner neglected the property.


she spotted an article in the Lawrence Journal-World nearly a decade ago requesting volunteer library assistance at the Douglas County Correctional Facility. She couldn’t pass up the opportunity to work with the inmates, helping them discover the joy of reading and the doors it could open in their lives, just as it had in her own life. Since then, Turney has spent nearly every Monday morning volunteering in the jail’s library. Her work developing an extensive collection of books has been so beneficial to the inmates that Michael Caron, programs director for

House at 711 Conn. “My focus at this point is to take the existing structures down,” said Tubbs, who noted the city found the structure unsafe when it condemned the property. Belt said the neighborhood perhaps would be open to having an apartment building on the site, but he said he’s been disappointed with the lack of communication the developers have had with the neighborhood. The project’s ownership does have some twists to it. Longtime Lawrence landlord James Dunn is listed as the property owner and the applicant for the demolition permit. That’s technically true, Dunn said, but he said he hasn’t ever managed the property and is not an investor in the future plans for the property. Instead, Dunn said, the adjacent Praise Temple Church, 315 E. Seventh St., is the entity behind the project. Dunn said Praise Temple wanted to purchase the property but did not want to finance it through a financial institution. Dunn bought the property in 2004 essentially

the Douglas County Correctional Facility, selected Turney as the facility’s United Way Roger Hill Volunteer Center Volunteer of the Year for Lifetime Service. “Ruth has been instrumental in helping make the Douglas County jail library the best county jail library in Kansas. And, for its size, the correctional facility undoubtedly has one of the premier jail libraries in the country,” Caron said. In addition to helping maintain the library, Turney uses creative means to expand the library’s collection without spending taxpayers’ dollars, Caron noted. For instance, she finds free books at the Heartland Book Bank in Kansas City, Mo., receives book donations from the Friends of the Library

with Americans’ perception of Russians. “For some reason, drinking always comes up,” said Olga Makashina, vice dean of the department of economics and management at Ivanovo State University of Power Engineering. She and others expressed concern that most Americans’ ideas of Russia were rooted in a different time. They stressed that modernday Russia is different from the old Soviet Union. On the whole, they’re not that different but Makashina said she felt that Russians were more intellectually curious on the whole. “Russians know more about the current budget crisis in America than most Americans,” she said.

as a means of financing the property for Praise Temple. The church is purchasing the property from Dunn “on contract,” he said. The church has been the landlord for the house, he said. “I was never even in the house until it was condemned,” Dunn said. “This would be like you calling the president of a bank and asking him about a piece of property in his mortgage portfolio. That’s my relationship to it. “But I do think it is really kind of a tragedy that it has gotten to this point.” Belt said neighbors had not been clear on what role the church was playing in the project. The church is led by the Rev. Paul Winn, a former city employee who previously was fined by Municipal Court for multiple housing code violations. In addition to the demolition, Tubbs is asking that the property be rezoned and be granted a parking variance. The apartment project would allow six units on the site, and also would use a good portion of the backyard as a parking lot, according to plans filed with the city. But the rezoning issue and the specific plans for the project aren’t up for approval at Tuesday’s city commission meeting — only the demolition issue. City commissioners meet at 6:35 p.m. on Tuesday at City Hall. — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362. Follow him at

book sale, and has sponsored bake sales at the Lawrence Farmers’ Market to raise funds to purchase books. Thanks to Turney’s efforts, inmates now have a wealth of good literature to enjoy. “It is a great way to spend their time productively, during the times when they are conf ined to their cells,” Caron said. “It puts their minds in a different place.” For Turney, volunteering at the jail has provided a rewarding way for her to continue her professional passions after retirement and share her love of reading with others. “It’s very touching being at the jail. A lot of the guys have never sat down and read a book,” she said. — Micki Chestnut is associate director of the United Way Roger Hill Volunteer Center.

“We see a growing economy.” University economists, legislative researchers, Department of Revenue officials and Anderson and other members of Gov. Sam Brownback’s budget staff made the forecast public after a twohour closed meeting. Lawmakers use the semiannual forecasts in budgeting. The forecasters reduced their earlier prediction for the current fiscal year by $10 million, or 0.2 percent. For the fiscal year beginning July 1, they revised the

projection downward by $22 million, or 0.4 percent. Legislators return April 27 from their annual spring break to wrap up their business for the year. The House and Senate must negotiate a final version of a proposed $14 billion budget after having approved separate proposals for the next fiscal year, relying also on federal funds and other sources to help finance state operations. The final version of the budget is likely to cut the state’s overall spending by between 5 percent and 6 percent, largely reflecting the disappearance of federal economic stimulus funds. It also likely will come close to Gov.

Sam Brownback’s proposal to cut base aid to Kansas’ public schools by $232 per student, or 5.8 percent. With the new revenue projections, the House’s version of the budget would leave about $48 million in reserves at the end of the next fiscal year. But the Senate’s version would result in a $23 million deficit, something prohibited under the Kansas Constitution. Senate Majority Leader Jay Emler, R-Lindsborg, said his chamber now faces accepting more of the House’s budget ideas than it has during negotiations. “We can’t be in the red,” he said. “I’m not sure exactly what else will be cut, but something


Photos of suspected shower peeper released Kansas University police have released photographs of a person of interest in three reports of a man peeking into the showers at female students at Hashinger and McCollum residence halls at KU this week. The suspect has been described as a white male, 18 to 21 years old, 6-foot-3, with short, light-brown hair. He was wearing a red shirt, blue jeans and white tennis shoes, according to KU Police Capt. Schuyler Bailey. A woman reported a man looked into the shower stall while she was inside it Monday evening in a fourth-floor

Hashinger Hall women’s restroom, and similar reports were made Wednesday morning at McCollum Hall on the eighth and third floors, Bailey said. KU released an updated crime alert on the incidents Friday morning, including the photographs.

Obama: Congress will raise debt limit By Ben Feller Associated Press Writer

C H I C A G O — President Barack Obama confidently predicted Friday that a divided Congress would raise the nation’s borrowing limit to cover the staggering federal debt rather than risk triggering a worldwide recession, but he conceded for the first time he would have to offer more spending cuts to Republicans to get a deal. P ushed to the brink, Obama said, the two parties would find “a smart compromise.” In an interview with The Associated Press, Obama also took pains to promote his long-term plan to cut trillions of dollars from federal deficits as a fairer, more compassionate alternative to a Republican plan that surged to party-line passage Friday afternoon in the House. And Obama said in his most forceful terms yet that he had the economic record to win re-election after he had “been able to yank this economy” out of recession. One week after the near government shutdown — Obama signed the bill finalizing that legislation after returning to the White House — the rejuvenated president answered questions in his hometown following an evening of fundraising for his re-election bid and a rare night in his own bed. On America’s wars, he said that a significant number of troops would begin coming home from Afghanistan in July despite expectations that the withdrawal could be modest. He said the U.S. would not expand its military role to end a bloody stalemate in Libya but insisted that Moammar Gadhaf i would, in time, be forced from power.

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA GESTURES Friday during his interview with The Associated Press in Chicago. While the House approved the multitrillion-dollar deficit-cuts measure, it was Obama’s comments on the debt limit — an issue the White House has labored to keep separate from yearly red ink totals — that altered the debate of the day. The government is nearing its borrowing limit of $14.3 trillion and risks going into a crippling default. Seizing on public frustration about spending, House Republicans say they won’t lift the debt cap without more cuts. Obama told the AP without doubt: “We will raise the debt limit. We always have. We will do it again.” He warned that anything less would undermine the solvency of the government, roil financial markets and potentially “plunge the world economy back into a reces-

sion.” Yet when pressed on how the stalemate with House Speaker John Boehner would end, Obama said: “I think he’s absolutely right that it’s not going to happen without some spending cuts.” The president spoke in the context of his goal that Democratic and Republican lawmakers can agree on a framework for long-term deficit reduction within the next couple of months. That falls within about the same time frame that Congress will need to vote to lift the debt ceiling. The administration says the latest Congress could act on that is by early July. When asked if he thought the perilous stakes alone would cause Republicans to give in, Obama said: “Well, no, I don’t expect the Republicans to give in and I get 100

percent of my way, and I don’t expect that we’re going to give 100 percent of what the Republicans want. I think what we want to do is make sure that we have a smart compromise that is serious.” A Boehner spokesman, Brendan Buck, welcomed Obama’s willingness to connect the debt limit to broader reductions in spending, saying that is what the American people want. “It’s encouraging he may now be getting that message,” Buck said. Later, Obama spokesman Jay Carney sought to pull back a bit on the president’s remarks. Carney said Obama was acknowledging that more deficit cuts are needed but insists the debt ceiling vote cannot be contingent on upcoming negotiations. In the 25-minute interview, Obama underlined his vision and re-election campaign message about the country’s path. He said he shares the Republicans’ desire for fiscal restraint but stands alone in protecting the social compacts and priorities of a nation. Elaborating on his description of a Republican “pessimistic vision,” he said: “It’s one that says that America can no longer do some of the big things that made us great, that made us the envy of the world.” On Afghanistan, where the United States has 100,000 troops, Obama offered a somewhat aggressive assessment of the scope of the troop withdrawal that is to begin as he promised in July. The goal is to transfer responsibility to Afghan forces. Without estimating a number of U.S. troops who will return, Obama said, “I’m confident that the withdrawal will be significant. People will say this is a real process of transition; this is not just a token gesture.”

Oops: An open mic night for the president By Jim Kuhnhenn Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON — Now that the reporters were gone, President Barack Obama had some private thoughts to share with about 50 donors. His recollections of the recent spending negotiations with House Speaker John Boehner. His tough assessment about his main budget antagonist in Congress. His desire for “cooler phones” in the White House and better information technology. The late evening exchange at a Chicago restaurant did not stay private for long. He was betrayed by a live audio feed which mistakenly piped Obama’s off the cuff


remarks all the way to the press briefing room of the White House, where a few reporters were still at work. It’s not the first time the privacy of Obama’s moments with donors has been pierced. During his 2008 presidential campaign, his comments at a private fundraiser about rural Americans who “cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them” were made public by a blogger in the audience who wrote for the liberal news website The Huff ington Post. In Thursday’s late event, captured on audio by CBS News, the president cast himself as a tough defender of his

health care law, fiercely fighting off Republican attempts to cut off some of its funding during negotiations to avert a government shutdown last week. “I said, ‘You wanna repeal health care? Go at it. We’ll have that debate. But you’re not going to be able to do it by nickel and diming me in the budget. You think we’re stupid?’” He also had tough words for the Republican chairman of the House Budget Committee, Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin. “This is the same guy who voted for two wars that were unpaid for, voted for the Bush tax cuts that were unpaid for, voted for the prescription

drug bill that cost as much as my health care bill but wasn’t paid for,” Obama said. The president, in remarks overheard by The Associated Press, also said he wanted a phone upgrade. “The Oval Office, I always thought I was going to have really cool phones and stuff,” he said. “I’m like, ‘C’mon guys, I’m the president of the United States. Where’s the fancy buttons and stuff and the big screen comes up?’ It doesn’t happen.” Government information technology, he complained, is “horrible.” “It’s true in the Pentagon. It’s true in the agencies. It’s true in the Department of Homeland Security.”

Used-car prices rise as sales IRS paid $513M in undeserved homebuyer tax credits slump’s aftershocks arrive By Stephen Ohlemacher

By Jim Gallagher St. Louis Post-Dispatch

ST. LOUIS — A new Toyota Prius these days starts at around $22,000, which might prompt the cost-conscious buyer in this fragile economy to scout around for a used version. But even a two-year-old model of the hybrid fuel miser costs almost as much, at about $20,800, according to National Automobile Dealers Association. And don’t expect dealers to come down much on the price of either one. Blame spiking used-car prices on a shortage of latemodel examples in the aftermath of the Great Recession — when few could afford to buy new. The supply of new cars, meanwhile, is tightening as the Japanese earthquake puts crimps in the supply chain, shutting off manufacturing of many models. High gasoline prices, meanwhile, are making buyers hungry for little gas-sippers and hybrids. The dealers association reports that prices on latemodel used cars sold to dealers at wholesale auctions jumped 4 percent in March alone, and they’re up 12 percent during the past year. Consumers can’t escape the consequences. “We have to pass it on,” said Denny Marquitz of Marquitz Buick Cadillac GMC in Troy, Mo. Car shoppers are noticing — to their chagrin. “On the big car lots, they seem to be asking a lot more than the Kelley Blue Book value,” said Brad Clark of O’Fallon, Mo., who wants to buy a used car for his 17-year-old son. The price increases are highest among fuel-efficient cars. Prices for these type of

cars — which include models such as the Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla and Ford Focus — jumped 11 percent at wholesale auctions last month alone, according to NADA. The group expects prices to keep rising for months to come. Used-car prices were rising even before the earthquake and the recent spike in gasoline prices. A sharp drop in new car sales two years ago is producing a shortage of late-model used cars on the market today, analysts say. American vehicle sales plunged to 10.4 million as the recession hit bottom in 2009, far below the 16 million-plus level in the years before the slump. They’re now selling at an annualized rate of 13 million. The “Cash for Clunkers” program of two years ago sent 677,000 older vehicles to the junk yards as their owners cashed in on a federal subsidy for buying more fuel-efficient cars. Because most of the trade-ins were old, the program probably has only a slight effect on today’s market for late-model cars, the kind prized by both dealers and buyers, said Jonathan Banks, senior analyst for the NADA Used Car Guide. It may be having more impact on prices for cheaper, older cars. But another new factor has driven up late model prices: Smaller rental car companies have joined the bidding at auto auctions. That’s because manufacturers have cut back on their cheap fleet sales to rental companies, forcing the companies to bid for newer used cars. The result is the tightest market for used cars in 20 years, said Banks, who thinks the situation will remain tight through next year. Prices for

used cars usually rise slightly in the spring, but the March jump was extreme, said Banks. Auto dealer Marquitz said buyers were facing yet another problem: Lenders, worried that the higher car values are temporary, won’t increase loan amounts to match the recent run-up used-car prices. “The customer has to come up with more money,” said Marquitz. The national average price for a gallon of gas, meanwhile, jumped 95 cents in the past year, according to AAA’s Fuel Gauge Report. That stems from increased demand in a recovering world economy, topped off by nervousness over revolutions in the Middle East. Pricey gas is sparking renewed demand for smaller, fuel-efficient cars. The Japanese earthquake is adding to the nervousness, analysts say. The speculation among used car dealers goes like this: The Japanese make many fuelefficient cars, and if their production declines, more buyers will look to used models. The cost of a used Toyota Prius hybrid jumped 40 percent at auto auctions over the past year — and 15 percent in the past month. Meanwhile, the disaster in Japan is starting to slow auto production, and not just in Japan. Japanese plants in the U.S. depend on Japanesemade parts. So do the Big Three American automakers, although to a much lesser extent. “All those parts on ships are in the process of being delivered. But there are no more ships behind them,” said Mike Wall, analyst at IHS Global Insight. Parts shortages will grow worse this month and in May, he said.

WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service has paid out more than a half-billion dollars in homebuyer tax credits to people who probably didn’t qualify, a government investigator said Friday. Most of the money — about $326 million — went to more than 47,000 taxpayers who didn’t qualify as firsttime homebuyers because there was evidence they had already owned homes, said the report by J. Russell George, the Treasury inspector general for tax administration. Other credits went to prison inmates, taxpayers who bought homes before the credit was enacted and people who did not actually buy homes. “The IRS has taken positive steps to strengthen controls and help prevent the

issuance of inappropriate homebuyer credits,” George said. “However, many of the actions occurred after hundreds of thousands of homebuyer credits had already been issued, including fraudulent and erroneous credits totaling millions of dollars.” The popular credit provided up to $8,000 to first-time homebuyers and up to $6,500 to qualified current owners who bought another home during parts of 2009 and 2010. IRS spokeswoman Michelle Eldridge said the agency worked hard to enforce a complicated tax credit that provided nearly $29 billion to more than 4 million taxpayers. The agency audited nearly 448,000 returns and blocked or denied nearly 426,000 questionable claims, she said. In all, the agency’s enforcement efforts saved more than

$1.3 billion and identified more than 200 criminal schemes, she said. “The IRS made the credit available within weeks of enactment, even allowing individuals to claim 2009 home purchases on their 2008 tax returns. Where there are questionable claims, the IRS has moved aggressively,” Eldridge said. “The IRS continues to audit claims as warranted, and recapture credits that were improperly paid.” The agency questioned some of the inspector general’s findings, but said it would follow up on the report. The tax credit for firsttime homebuyers was part of President Barack Obama’s economic recovery package enacted in 2009. In November 2009, Congress extended the credit and expanded it to longtime owners who bought new homes.


Notable ● The nation’s top six credit card companies all say their customers’ payment habits improved in March, a positive sign for the industry in a month that has proved volatile in the past few years. Defaults and late payments are down for Chase, Bank of America, Citibank, Capital One, Discover and American Express. Overall, delinquency and charge-offs, as they’re called in the industry, are at the lowest point since mid-2008. The drop in late payments is a particularly good sign because in the last two years, there was an uptick in March as card users fumbled with post-holiday payments. Bank of America Corp., the nation’s largest credit card issuer, still has the highest rates for both measures. American Express Co., which has more affluent customers, has the lowest.

Consumers feel the pinch of pricier gas, food By Christopher S. Rugaber Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON — Americans are paying more for food and gas, a trend that threatens to slow the economy at a crucial time. So far, the spike in such necessities hasn’t stopped businesses from stepping up hiring or slowed factory production, which rose in March for the ninth straight month. Still, higher gas prices have led some economists to lower their forecasts for growth for the January-March quarter. Consumer prices rose 0.5 percent last month, the Labor Department said Friday. Nearly all of the gains came from pricier gas and food. When taking out those two volatile categories, core inflation was relatively flat. But at the same time, employees are only seeing small, if any, pay increases. “People have less money to spend on goods other than food and energy and that is going to cause the expansion to slow,” said economist Joel Naroff of Naroff Economic Advisors. The spike in prices is hitting most Americans just as the economy is gaining momentum. Businesses added more than 200,000 jobs in March and February, the best twomonth hiring stretch in four years. And the unemployment rate has fallen to a two-year low of 8.8 percent. Consumers also have a little more money to spend this year, thanks to a one-year cut in Social Security taxes. But most of the extra $1,000 to $2,000 per person is filling the gas tank. The national

average for a gallon was $3.82 on Friday — nearly $1 more than a year ago. In five states, the average price is exceeding $4 a gallon. How big the economic impact will be is the critical question. Many analysts expect food prices will come down and oil prices will stabilize by summer. If companies continue to create jobs, consumer spending will rise faster. That would give the economy a boost by fall. U.S. manufacturers are seeing more business, according to a separate report on Friday from the Federal Reserve. Factory output rose in March, bolstered in part by a jump in auto production. One concern is automakers are bracing for some disruptions in the supply of parts from Japan, which is recovering from a 9.0-magnitude earthquake and tsunami that caused widespread damage. Nigel Gault, chief U.S. economist at IHS Global Insight, predicts the economy will grow only 1.8 percent in the January-March period, down from an earlier estimate of above 3 percent. Rising inflation will likely cut consumer spending growth to half its pace in the previous quarter. Still, rising exports and business purchases of computers and other equipment should keep factories humming, even if consumers pull back. And companies will likely keep hiring. For those reasons, Gault expects economic growth to pick up a little in the April-June quarter, and then rebound to nearly 4 percent in the second half of the year.

House passes huge GOP budget cuts By Andrew Taylor Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON — In a prelude to a summer showdown with President Barack Obama, Republicans controlling the House pushed to passage on Friday a bold but politically dangerous budget blueprint to slash social safety net programs like food stamps and Medicaid and fundamentally restructure Medicare health care for the elderly. The nonbinding plan lays out a fiscal vision cutting $6.2 trillion from yearly federal def icits over the coming decade and calls for transforming Medicare from a program in which the government directly pays medical bills into a voucher-like system that subsidizes purchases of private insurance plans. The GOP budget passed 235-193 with every Democrat voting “no.” Obama said in an Associated Press interview that it would “make Medicare into a voucher program. That’s something that we strongly object to.” The vote sets up the Republicans’ next round of confrontation with Obama and Democrats over mustpass legislation to allow the government to borrow more money to finance its operations and obligations to holders of U.S. bonds. For the first time, Obama acknowledged that raising the debt limit is “not going to happen without some spending cuts” insisted upon by Republicans and some Democrats.

‘No more kicking the can’ The vote came on the same day Obama signed a hardfought six-month spending bill that averted a government shutdown while cutting $38 billion from the government. Struck last week, the compromise was the first between the White House and the emboldened Republican majority in the House. Under the House Republican plan approved Friday, deficits requiring the federal government to borrow more than 40 cents for every dollar it spends would be cut by the end of the decade to 8 cents of borrowing for every dollar spent. “If the president won’t lead, we will,” Boehner said as he closed debate. “No more kicking the can down the road, no more whistling past the graveyard. Now is the time to address the serious challenges that face the American people and we will.” Obama saw the situation differently. In the AP interview, he said the Republicans’ “pessimistic vision ... says

HOUSE MINORITY LEADER NANCY PELOSI, D-Calif., left, pauses amidst protesters during a news conference Friday on Capitol Hill in Washington. that America can no longer do some of the big things that made us great, that made us the envy of the world.” The plan by Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, RWis., exposes Republicans to political risk. Its Medicare proposal would give people presently 54 or younger health insurance subsidies that would steadily lose value over time — even as current beneficiaries and people 55 and older would stay in the current system. The budget measure is nonbinding but lays out a vision to fundamentally reshape government benefit programs for the poor and elderly, programs whose spiraling costs threaten to crowd out other spending and produce a crippling debt burden that could put a major drag on the economy in the future. “Which future do you want your children to have? One where the debt gets so large it crushes the economy and gives them a diminished future?” Ryan asked. “Or this budget ... that literally not only gets us on the way to balancing the budget but pays off our debt?”

GOP attacks spending The GOP’s solution to unsustainable deficits is to relentlessly attack the spending side of the ledger while leaving Bush-era tax cuts intact. It calls for tax changes that would lower the top income tax rates for corporations and individuals by cleaning out a tax code cluttered with tax breaks and preferences, but it parts company with Obama and the f indings of a bipartisan deficit commission, which proposed devoting about

$100 billion a year in new revenue to easing the deficit. Democrats and many budget experts say this spending-cuts-only approach is fundamentally unbalanced, targeting social safety net programs like Medicaid and food stamps while leaving in place a tax system they say bestows too many benefits on the wealthy. The GOP blueprint would cut almost $800 million from the federal-state Medicaid program — which provides health care to the poor and disabled and pays for nursing home care for millions of indigent senior citizens — into a block grant program run by the states. Republicans counter that low taxes and spending cuts would unleash capital into the economy and put it on firm footing — and avoid a European-style debt crisis that could force far harsher steps. “The Republican plan is not bold. It’s just the same old tired formula we’ve seen before of providing big tax breaks to the very wealthy and powerful special interests at the expense of the rest of America,” said top Budget panel Democrat Chris Van Hollen of Maryland. “Except this time it’s dressed up with a lot of sweet-smelling talk of reform.” In their budget, Republicans shied away from tackling Social Security shortfalls, steering clear of what pundits sometimes call the “third rail of American politics.” Virtually every budget expert in Washington agrees that projected Medicare cost increases are unsustainable, but the GOP initiative has brought heated disagreement.

Likely Republican contenders plot tea party strategies By Philip Elliott Associated Press Writer

BOSTON — It’s a tricky time of courtship. As the tea party turns 2, the still-gelling field of Republican presidential contenders is the first class of White House hopefuls to try to figure out how to tap the movement’s energy without alienating voters elsewhere on the political spectrum. Look no further than this weekend’s events marking the tea party’s second anniversary to see how the candidates are employing different strategies. Some will be out front as the tea party stages tax day rallies across the country. Others, not so much. Former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, an establishment Republican making a play for tea party support and clamoring to be heard over bigger names, is among those jumping in with both feet. Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour is being more coy. Pawlenty joined a gathering on Boston Common — in the city where colonists staged the 1773 Tea Party revolt against the British government — and earlier in neighboring New Hampshire. And he’s headed for Iowa a day later for similar appearances that are likely to include “Don’t Tread on Me” banners and tirades against Washington spending.

Pawlenty led a crowd here in chanting “Yes, he did!” — a negative take on Obama’s “Yes, we can!” campaign slogan — as he listed what he called Obama’s broken promises to halve the federal deficit, contain health care costs with GOP aid and prevent 8 percent unemployment. “Thank you for being modern-day Paul Reveres, sounding the alarm and being the patriots who are going to lead the effort to take back our country,” he said, echoing an earlier appearance in Concord. For his part, Obama said he welcomed the activists’ work to “force some questions to the surface about who we are as a people, and what can we afford and what kind of government do we want.” “Obviously I have very different views than many in the tea party and certainly they would say they have very different views from me in terms of the proper role of government in our society,” Obama said in an interview with The Associated Press, “but my general view is that the more engaged the American people are, the more focused they are, then the better off our democracy will be over the long term.” Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, perhaps the Republican most closely identified with the tea party, is slated to attend a weekend tea party

rally at the Wisconsin Capitol, the site of recent protests over legislation that would strip union rights for most public workers. Tea party darling Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann, all but drafted into the race by tea partyers, plans to share the steps of the South Carolina Statehouse with another of the movement’s favorite daughters, Gov. Nikki Haley. And little-known businessman Herman Cain, who is hoping tea party backing can make him more than a longshot, planned to hit rallies in New Hampshire, Iowa, Michigan and Texas. “A sleeping giant — we the people — has awakened, and it’s not going back to sleep,” Cain said. “We the people are still in charge of this country, no matter what you decide to call us.” Real estate magnate Donald Trump, who says he’s serious about running, picked a tea party rally in Boca Raton, Fla., to make his stand. And former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum told a crowd on the New Hampshire Statehouse’s lawn that the 2012 election is a choice between the nation’s founding fathers or Obama. “Are we a country that is again going to believe in ourselves, in free people, in limited government, so we can transform the world and leave our country better than we found it?”

Half of supermarket meat may have staph By Mike Stobbe Associated Press Writer

ATLANTA â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Half the meat and poultry sold in the supermarket may be tainted with the staph germ, a new report suggests. The new estimate is based on just 136 samples of beef, chicken, pork and turkey purchased from grocery stores in Chicago, Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., Flagstaff, Ariz., and Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Proper cooking kills the germs, and federal health officials estimate staph accounts for less than 3 percent of foodborne illnesses, far less than more common bugs like salmonella HEALTH and E. coli. The new study found more than half the samples contained Staphylococcus aureus, a bacteria that can make people sick. Worse, half of those contaminated samples had a form of staph thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resistant to at least three kinds of antibiotics. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This study shows that much of our meat and poultry is contaminated with multidrug-resistant staph,â&#x20AC;? Paul Keim, one of the studyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s authors, said in a statement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now we need to determine what this means in terms of risk to the consumer.â&#x20AC;? Keim and his co-authors work at the nonprofit Translational Genomics Research Institute in Arizona. Their study is to be published in the journal Clinical infectious Diseases, an institute spokesman said. Staph germs are commonly found on the skin and in the noses of up to 25 percent of healthy people. The bacteria can be spread in many settings, including in the packing plant or in the kitchen, and it can cause food poisoning. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that staph accounts for roughly 240,000 cases a year. Handwashing and proper cooking are the best ways to avoid problems. The studyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s authors note that livestock and poultry are steadily fed low doses of antibiotics at industrial farms. They suggest that may be a contributor to the antibiotic resistance seen in some meat samples. Among the types of drugresistant germs the researchers found, one was methicillin-resistant staph, or MRSA, a superbug that can be fatal. They found MRSA in three of the 136 samples. Food and Drug Administration officials say meat does not seem to be a significant route for MRSA transmission, but health officials continue to study the issue. The government doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t routinely check retail meat and poultry for staph bacteria. But a fairly recent FDA pilot study in the Washington area looked at more than 1,100 meat and poultry samples and found staph in 280 of them. A Louisiana State University study of 120 meat samples found it in almost half of pork chops and 20 percent of beef steak samples. That study, published in 2009, calculated the superbug MRSA was in about 5 percent of pork samples and 3 percent of beef. In a statement Friday, the American Meat Institute said the study is misleading. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Despite the claims of this small study, consumers can feel confident that meat and poultry is safe,â&#x20AC;? said James H. Hodges, the organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s president.


Few blacks attend Civil War anniversary events By Bruce Smith

KITTY EVANS, A REENACTOR, discusses slave life during a living history event Wednesday in Charleston, S.C. The National Park Service is trying to make Civil War anniversary events over the next four years more hospitable to black people.

Associated Press Writer

CHARLESTON, S.C. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; As cannons thudded around Charleston Harbor this week in commemoration of the start of the war that extinguished slavery, the audiences for the 150th-anniversary events were nearly all white. Even black scholars lecturing about black Union troops and the roots of slavery gazed out mostly on white faces. The reasons blacks stayed away are not exactly a mystery: Across Dixie, Civil War commemorations have tended to celebrate the Confederacy and the battlefield exploits of those who fought for the slaveholding South. But the National Park Service is trying to make anniversary events over the next four years more hospitable to black people. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to broaden the story to go beyond the battlefields to the home front and to talk about 150 years later, if much of the reason for the war was freedom for enslaved people, how far have we come?â&#x20AC;? said Carol

Shively, a spokeswoman for the Park Service sesquicentennial in the Southeast. The anniversary of the April 12, 1861, bombardment of Fort Sumter that plunged the nation into its bloodiest war was marked in Charleston on Tuesday by hundreds of people. Only a few blacks attended a predawn concert of period music or were on hand for a ceremony re-creating the first shot a few hours later. One of the black people present was a Union re-enactor who threw a wreath into the water and then saluted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very painful

and rawâ&#x20AC;? for blacks to attend such activities, said the Rev. Joseph Darby of Charleston, who is black and was not there for the Fort Sumter commemoration. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to be authentic in the way you re-create it, it would be hard to filter out the triumphal air of the firing on Fort Sumter.â&#x20AC;? On Wednesday, the Park Service sponsored events about blacks outside its Fort Sumter tour boat dock. It included lectures on slavery and on the Union 54th Massachusetts, the black unit depicted in the 1989 movie â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gloryâ&#x20AC;? starring Matthew

Broderick, Denzel Washington and Morgan Freeman. But out of about 50 people attending the lectures, there was only one black, a woman who declined to be interviewed. Dot Scott, president of the local chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, said even such programs may not be enough to get blacks involved in 150th-anniversary events. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s almost like celebrating with the enemy,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I personally began to have a feeling of why would I want to be a part of it?â&#x20AC;? The national NAACP has said the activities should nei-

ther romanticize the South nor ignore that slavery was the principal cause of the war. Both Scott and Darby credit the National Park Service with working hard to make events inclusive. Darby, the minister, said one sure way to interest more blacks in the commemorations would be to remove the Confederate banner that has flown on the Statehouse grounds in Columbia since the Civil War centennial. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There would be a lot of black folks who would come out if our Legislature would in 2015 officially decide the war was over and take the flag down,â&#x20AC;? he said.

Spending cuts essential start to reducing deficit

W A S H I N G T O N — The most serious charge against Rep. Paul Ryan’s budget is not the risible claim, made most prominently by President Obama in his President Barack Obama George Washington University address, White House, Washington, that it would “sacrifice the America we D.C. 20500; believe in.” The serious charge is that (202) 456-1111 the Ryan plan fails by its own standards: Online comments: Because it only cuts spending without raising taxes, it accumulates trillions of debt and doesn’t balance the budget U.S. Sen. Jerry Moran (R) until the 2030s. If the debt is such a Russell Senate Office national emergency, they say, Ryan Building, Courtyard 4 never really gets you there from here. Washington, D.C. 20510; But the critics miss the point. You (202) 224-6521; Website: can’t get there from here without Ryan’s plan. It’s the essential element. Of course Ryan is not going to propose U.S. Sen. Pat Roberts (R) tax increases. You don’t need Republi109 Hart Senate Office cans for that. That’s what Democrats Building do. The president’s speech was a prose Washington, D.C. 20510; poem to higher taxes — with every (202) 224-4774; Website: allusion to spending cuts guarded by a phalanx of impenetrable caveats. U.S. Rep. Tim Huelskamp (RRyan reduces federal spending by 1st District) $6 trillion over 10 years — from the current 24 percent of GDP to the his126 Cannon House Office torical post-World War II average of Building about 20 percent.

Real tax reform strips out “exclusions, deductions,

credits and the innumerable loopholes that have accumulated since the last tax reform of 1986.” The critics are right to focus on that gap. But it is bridgeable. And the mechanism for doing so is in plain sight: tax reform. Real tax reform strips out exclusions, deductions, credits and the innumerable loopholes that have accumulated since the last tax reform of 1986. The Simpson-Bowles commission, for example, identifies $1.1 trillion of such revenue-robbers. In one scenario, it strips them all out and thus is able to lower rates for everyone to three brackets of 8 percent, 14 percent and 23 percent. The commission does recommend

that, on average, about $100 billion annually of that $1.1 trillion be kept by the Treasury (rather than going back to the taxpayer) to reduce the deficit. This is a slight deviation from revenue neutrality, but it still yields a major cut for the top rate from the current 35 percent to 23 percent. The overall result is so reasonable and multiply beneficial that it rightly gained the concurrence of even the impeccably conservative (commission member) Sen. Tom Coburn. That’s the beauty of tax reform: It is both transparent and flexible. That flexibility and transparency can be applied to the Ryan plan. If you need a bit more deficit reduction to bridge the 1.6 percent GDP gap that remains after 10 years, you can get there by slightly raising the final rates. Ryan’s tax reform envisions three brackets with a top rate of 25 percent. There’s nothing sacred about that number. In principle, you could raise all the rates slightly with the top rate going to, say, 28 percent — the top rate that came out of Ronald Reagan’s 1986 tax reform. You’re still much lower than the current 35 percent. And yet that final boost could bring you closer to a fully balanced federal budget at roughly 20 percent of GDP. Nor would any great conservative principle be violated. The historical average of revenues — 18 percent to 19 percent of GDP — could be raised one

point or so on the perfectly reasonable grounds that we are a slightly older society, and that we wish to avail ourselves of the extraordinary but expensive medical technology that can increase both the quality and length of life. This one concession would yield a fully balanced budget more quickly than Ryan’s plan and would reduce the debt/GDP ratio even more steeply (because GDP would be growing, while debt would not). The effect on America’s financial standing in the world would be dramatic: Restored confidence in U.S. fiscal health would reduce interest rates, which would lower the overall debt burden, which could allow lower taxes, which could stimulate yet more economic growth. A virtuous circle. That’s the finish line. But it starts with spending cuts. Serious cuts, as Ryan suggests — not the smoke and mirrors the Obama speech shamelessly presented as a plan. Given the Democrats’ instinctive resort to granny-in-the-snow demagoguery, the Republicans are right not to budge on taxes until serious spending cuts are in place. At which point, the grand compromise awaits. And grand it would be. Saving the welfare state from insolvency is no small achievement. — Charles Krauthammer is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.

As a result, students who do stay in school are ill-prepared for college — or society. For so many reasons, in addition to those Mr. Lippencott addresses, teachers need to EARN raises, not expect across-the-board increases. And whoever approves raises should remember that teachers are in the classroom maybe eight months out of the year, what with vacations, holidays, school breaks, summers off, etc. Why should they expect to be paid a 12-month salary, especially when few students meet advanced placement in college, if they even go on to college. Let’s put the emphasis on the quality of education. These kids are tomorrow’s leaders, and God knows we need some decent ones. Barbara Paris, Lawrence

Historical name To the editor: Thanks to Mary Gordon and the other Liberty Memorial High School graduates for writing the letter I intended to write concerning the naming of the building now housing Central Junior High School. As they explained, this building was erected as a memorial to the Lawrence men who fought and died in World War I. It seems only right that this memorial should be preserved. It’s been over 60 years since I sat in the auditorium of that building, but the words inscribed over the stage are engraved in my heart. I think I am at least almost right as I repeat them here: “All that they had they gave in sure and single faith, There is no knowledge can reach the grave to make them grudge their death, Save only if they understood that after all was done, We, the redeemed, denied their blood and mocked the gains it won.” Please, committee, as you name the middle school to be housed in this building, remember the original purpose intended for it and call it “Liberty Memorial Middle School.” Mary Anne Wolf McClure, Lawrence

Spring snowstorm briefly closes I-70 WICHITA (AP) — U.S. Interstate 70 in western Kansas was closed Friday morning after a storm battered the area with snow and high winds. The Transportation Department says the highway reopened in both directions about noon. It had been closed from Hays to the Colorado border earlier Friday because of hazardous driving conditions. Up to five inches of snow had fallen in that area and 50 mile-per-hour winds were reported. There were no reports of major damage or injuries from the storm.

Woolridge to transfer from KU Tom Keegan

Brunansky enjoyable to watch The new college baseball bat standards that reduced the exit speed of a batted baseball have reduced batting averages 22 points and increased shutouts by 60.3 percent, according to a recent Fort Worth StarTelegram report. In other words, the change has made the game more enjoyable to watch because baseball’s most beautiful plays come on defense and the slower the ball moves, the better chance fielders have of getting to it. When baseball scores resemble football scores, coaches tend to load their lineups with mashers and take their chances. Not so anymore. Certainly not so with a Kansas University team built on pitching and defense. And no Jayhawk entertains in more Brunansky thrilling fashion wearing a glove than junior center fielder Jason Brunansky, who on one highlight is slamming into a center-field wall that knocks the wind out of him but doesn’t knock the ball out of his glove, and on the next is laying out in left-center field, catching a ball the announcer already had deemed a sure extra-base hit. To those looking out toward center, Brunansky makes the game a more enjoyable experience, but when he has looked out toward center from home plate for most of this season, the number he saw on the scoreboard cruelly slapped him in the face. He started last weekend’s series against Nebraska in Hoglund Ballpark with a .141 batting average. By the end of the series, he was batting .205. By mid-week, he had learned from hitting coach Jay Uhlman that he had been named Big 12 Player of the Week. Asked Thursday if he knew his batting average, the 5-foot10, 192-pound Brunansky said, “No, but I know it’s more than I weigh now.” Even after going 0-for-5 in Friday night’s 8-3 victory against Missouri, Brunansky still is batting more than he weighs, though not by much (.193). In the Nebraska series, Brunansky went 7-for-12, scored six runs, doubled, homered and drove in three runs. “I was really happy for him,” Kansas coach Ritch Price said of Brunansky winning the award. “This game can grind at you, and when you get off to a bad start, the hole gets bigger and bigger and bigger. He’s on the phone every night with his dad, who’s trying to help him work through it mentally. You get buried mentally.” His father, Tom Brunansky, knows a little bit about the game. Bruno was what scouts call a five-tool prospect. Coaches and managers judge seven tools, with head and heart being the additions. Baseball writers add “good guy” as the eighth. Bruno was an eight-tool guy, who hit 271 home runs and knocked in 919 runs in 14 bigleague seasons. Asked to break himself down as a prospect, the next generation Bruno obliged. “They’ll probably notice the defense first and stick around for the bat,” said Brunansky, who played regularly as a freshman and sporadically as a sophomore. He reads the ball off the bat superbly, has great closing speed and will play for as long as his bat lets him.

Royce Woolridge, who committed to Kansas University’s basketball program back as a sophomore in high school, on Friday announced plans to transfer at the end of his freshman year. “I love Kansas, but I just really want to play more,” said Woolridge, a 6-foot-3, 182-pound guard out of Phoenix Sunnys-

lope High. “I feel like I will have more of an opportunity to play if I went somewhere else. “I mean it’s sad that it happened like this. I committed so early. Playing at Kansas was my dream. I’m happy I had a year living out my dream. I have no regrets. You can never have regrets. It was a great year. It’s a great place to be, but it’s important to me get more of an opportunity to play.” Woolridge — he scored nine

points all season while playing 44 minutes in 16 games — said he had no specific school in mind. “It would be nice to be closer to home, to my mom, but I really have no idea,” said Woolridge, who informed coach Bill Self of his decision on Thursday. Self explained the transfer decision-making process on Friday. “When Royce and I met after the season, we talked openly and honestly of the potential role he

would have for our team moving forward,” Self said. “After the meeting, he wanted to visit with his family. He then came back to me yesterday and said he wanted his release and was seeking to transfer. “Royce works hard and is deserving of an opportunity to play more,” Self added. “Although his play was limited Woolridge leaving this season, he did have an KU to find more playing time Please see WOOLRIDGE, page 3B elsewhere


Cold day, cold start Firebirds heat up quickly By Ben Ward Journal-World Sports Writer

With a game-time temperature in the 30s, biting wind and intermittent rain, warming up was out of the question for Free State High’s baseball team. Once the Firebirds got in a rhythm, though, they were all set. FSHS (7-1) shrugged off a sluggish start in the field en route to a 14-4 rout of Springfield (Mo.) Hillcrest in six innings on Friday evening at FSHS. The Firebirds committed four errors in the first three innings that led to four unearned Hornets runs, but aside from that, rapped 15 hits and played quite well. Please see FIREBIRDS, page 3B

FREE STATE SENIOR CODY KUKUK WATCHES his hit in the fifth inning against Springfield (Mo.) Hillcrest. The Firebirds won, 14-4 in six innings, on Friday at FSHS in the River City Baseball Festival.

Lawrence High’s baseball game against Shawnee Mission Northwest in the River City Baseball Festival on Friday was canceled because of inclement weather. LHS coach Brad Stoll said his players were disappointed by the cancellation, mostly because they wanted to build on this week’s momentum. “But hey, that’s how baseball in Kansas is,” Stoll said. “It’s beautiful one night, and absolutely miserable the next day.” Stoll said the Lions and Cougars will try to schedule a game for a later date. Weather permitting, Lawrence High will play Blue Springs (Mo.) at 4:30 today at Kansas University’s Hoglund Ballpark. — Clark Goble

KANSAS CITY STARTING PITCHER LUKE HOCHEVAR THROWS to a Seattle batter in the first inning. Hochevar gave up just one hit in seven innings in the Royals’ 6-5 victory on Friday in Kansas City, Mo.

KANSAS CITY, MO. (AP) — With the temperature hovering in the 30s, a steady rain and wind howling up to 24 miles per hour, Luke Hochevar felt right at home. He held the Seattle Mariners to one hit for seven innings as the Kansas City Royals held on to win, 6-5, Friday night for their fifth victory in six games. “It was definitely cold out there, but that’s something you can’t really think about,” Hochevar said. “I like pitching in the cold. I really do. I think in really, really cold weather the pitcher has the upper hand. Growing up in Colorado I’m used to it. “I felt like I got in a groove as the game went on. I gave myself

a little more time before the game to get loose, knowing it was going to be chilly.” Royals manager Ned Yost said his hands MARINERS “were freezwhile AT ROYALS ing” making a pitching change in When: 12:10 p.m. the Mariners’ today three-run Where: Kauffman ninth.

Suzuki advanced to third on a Milton Bradley ground out and scored on Jack Cust’s fielder’s choice grounder. Hochevar, the f irst player picked in the 2006 draft, retired 16 in a row after walking Luis Rodriguez with two out in the second before exiting after seven innings and 100 pitches.

NCAA approves football rule changes INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The NCAA has approved tougher restrictions on blocking below the waist and given teams the option of taking 10 seconds off the clock in the final minute of each half this season in penalty situations. The NCAA says the Playing Rules Oversight Committee approved the changes Thursday. Receivers or running backs lined up outside the tackle box can

block below the waist only if they are blocking straight ahead or toward the nearest sideline. If they go inside and block toward the play, it would be a penalty. If teams commit a penalty that stops the clock in the final minute of a half, the opponent can take the yardage and a 10-second clock rundown; the yardage only; or decline both the clock rundown and the yardage.

Those changes coincide with perhaps the biggest change of the season — implementation of the new taunting rule. Last April, the playing rules panel approved a decision to nullify touchdowns if a player is called for taunting before he crosses the goal line. Examples include players finishing touchdown runs by highstepping into the end zone or pointing the ball at an opponent.

The panel decided then to wait one year before making the change. Previously, the 15-yard penalty was assessed on the extra point attempt, 2-point conversion attempt or the ensuing kickoff. Penalties called after the player crosses the goal line still will be assessed on those plays, but live-ball fouls will be assessed at the spot of the foul and eliminate the score.

By Mark Heisler Los Angeles Times

LOS ANGELES — Once more — even if it’s the last time — NBA fans join together in that age-old prayer ... Thank heavens that’s over! The season is so long that, even if you remember when the Miami Heat was loathed and feared, you may not have the slightest idea why. And what a season it was! TV ratings set new records at ABC, ESPN and TNT. Revenues were at an alltime high, approaching $4 billion ... as owners and players girded for Apocalypse This Summer. Not that the Heat had much to do with it, at least at first, quickly falling by the wayside. At 9-8, ESPN’s “Heat Index” folded its daily updates on the team’s chances of winning 72 and LeBron James’ chances of averaging a triple-double, as their hype was eclipsed by two mere basketball teams, the Celtics and Bulls. The Celtics became the NBA version of a buffalo stampede as Shaquille O’Neal joined Kevin Garnett, Glen Davis and Kendrick Perkins. The Bulls had presumptive MVP — in his third season — Derrick Rose, new coach Tom Thibodeau’s defense and Joakim Noah and Carlos Boozer, if only in 29 games together. Overcoming their own 9-8 start, they overtook the Heat on March 6, winning in Miami to drop the home team to No. 3, four games behind Boston. That was the “crybaby game” when Miami coach Erik Spoelstra’s offhand mention of tears made his players a laughingstock. The Knicks’ Amar’e Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony yukked it up. The Lakers’ Kobe Bryant said nobly he wouldn’t judge, but laughed when asked if he ever cried. The entire league said, “There’s no crying in basketball!” almost in unison. Unfortunately, the Heat went back to winning and people turned to other laughingstocks, such as the Knicks, falling off a cliff with Melo. All but unnoticed, only the Bulls (54-15) had a better record than the Heat (50-17) after Thanksgiving. The regular season notwithstanding (a good name for it), the Lakers remain cofavorites with the Bulls at 5-2 to win the title. Showing the season’s importance in the scheme of things ... and/or disregarding the evidence of their eyes ... the Lakers’ West rivals spent the final days trying to get out of their way. Memphis benched Zach Randolph, tanking its last two losses with a tidal wave of a splash, as if dropping the 260pound Z-Bo off a high board, diving to No. 8 to play the Spurs, instead. Spurs coach Gregg Popovich, himself, sat his big three against the Lakers, helping them avoid a drop to No. 4, into San Antonio’s bracket. Unfortunately, the Lakers kept losing, as if tanking to get away from themselves, until that next-to-last game against the Spurs. Appropriately enough, they took it to the very end, blowing a 20-point fourthquarter lead Wednesday in Sacramento. Whether it turns out to be appropriate or not, Bryant’s three tied it with 4.8 seconds left and they won in overtime ... or they’d be opening against the prickly Trail Blazers instead of the overmatched Hornets. Now it’s time for the best-looking postseason in years. The East’s glamour matchups start in the first round with Boston-New York, the winner — the Celtics, unless a lot of threes drop — looking at Miami in the second round. The West’s first round is merely interesting, then, assuming both fading teams revive, the Lakers meeting the Mavericks in the second round. Suggesting a dawning Age of the East, the Bulls and Heat are both young and in as good shape as they’re going to be.

NFL mediation to resume Tuesday MINNEAPOLIS — Negotiators for the NFL and its locked-out players have wrapped up two days of court-ordered talks, with plans to sit down again next week but no sign of significant progress. U.S. Magistrate Judge Arthur Boylan is overseeing the mediation at the federal courthouse in Minneapolis. The two sides left after meeting for about four hours on Friday, following a session that lasted longer than nine hours on Thursday. An attorney for the players says they have “a lot of work” to do over the weekend before the next session. Hall of Famer Carl Eller, who is representing retired players in the antitrust lawsuit against the league, says he thinks the sides are “moving forward” but have “slowed a little bit” in their progress.

that Mauer has a viral infection, which the team believes increased the catcher’s body soreness recently. Mauer was placed on the 15-day disabled list Thursday because of leg weakness stemming from offseason arthroscopic surgery on his left knee. Gardenhire hopes Mauer will be able to return in a couple weeks.

Dykstra in trouble with law

It’s hard to say where the bottom is for Lenny Dykstra, but here’s a new low: The former Phillies outfielder was charged this week in federal court with embezzling from his bankrupt estate and also was arrested in an unrelated grand theft investigation.

Walz ‘special’ in KU’s victory J-W Staff Reports

C O L U M B I A , M O . — The Kansas University baseball team evened its record at 17-17 with an 8-3 victory over Border War rival Missouri on Friday night at Taylor Stadium. KU senior Jimmy Waters went 3-for-5 with a double and an RBI and team ace, T.J. Walz, picked up the victory on the mound by tossing seven innings and yielding one run on five hits while striking out five Tigers. “That’s Friday night in our conference, and T.J. Walz was absolutely special,” KU coach Ritch Price said. “Anytime you pitch on Friday night in our league, you know you have to be electric in order to have an opportunity to win. I believe that’s six quality starts he’s given us to start this season and I couldn’t be more pleased.” The victory KU’s sixth straight over Mizzou. Waters’ three hits led a balanced and productive offensive attack. KU has averaged 10 runs per game in its last three contests — all wins — and the Jayhawks’ eight runs marked just the fourth time all season that KU scored eight or more runs in a single game. “It’s really been awesome to watch Jimmy Waters emerge,” Price said. “The last couple weeks he’s been special. He’s starting to collect big hits for us,


impact on our team. We wish him nothing but the best and we know he will do well wherever he attends. He is a good teammate and a great student.” Woolridge had a 3.6 grade point average first semester. “The KU coaches have taught me so much. Coach Self is an amazing coach. All the assistant coaches have taught me a ton this year,” Woolridge said. “I’ve learned more about basketball that I had no idea about. I look at basketball from a whole different perspective because of the coaches. I really understand it more. “I want to thank all of my teammates,” Woolridge added. “They are family. I want to thank the fans. They have been amazing. I didn’t even play and they still showed me a lot of love and accepted me as part of the KU family and I appreciate that. I want to thank the wives of the coaches for helping me. My mom was back in Phoenix and they helped me from that standpoint. “Kansas made me better, no doubt. I am so much better and this place helped me become more of a man and I appreciate everything it has done for me.” Woolridge’s mom, Victoria, says there are no hard feelings. “This is amicable. There’s not a bad reason for this,” Victoria said. “Royce came at a time there were a lot of sen-

iors in front of him. He wants to play now. He and coach Self came to an understanding. We have some options (of other schools) that we will look at because Royce really wants to play. “I want to stress there’s no better fans than (at) Kansas. You have the greatest fans in America. They stood behind Royce after he signed and after he got there. We have nothing against Kansas. We will miss everyone tremendously.” Woolridge said no matter where he lands he’ll always consider himself a KU fan. “Of course,” he said. “My brothers are here. I love KU.” The Jayhawks, who lost three seniors as well as the Morris twins and Josh Selby off a 35-3 team, now have six returning scholarship players (counting Conner Teahan, who received a scholarship last season after arriving as a walk-on) to go with signees Braeden Anderson, Ben McLemore and Naadir Tharpe. Thus, KU has four additional scholarships still to give during the spring signing period, which lasts until May 18. Self has said he would like to sign at least one more perimeter player and one more frontcourt player. Players still on KU’s wish list include DeAndre Daniels, 6-8, 180, from IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla.; Jamari Traylor, 6-7, 210, also from IMG; and Trevor Lacey, 6-3, 190, from Butler High in Huntsville, Ala. Daniels is visiting Duke this weekend. — Assistant sports editor Gary Bedore can be reached at 832-7186.

throwing error to cap the four-run Firebird inning. From there, FSHS added pairs of runs in the fourth, fifth, and then three more in the sixth — an RBI triple from Colin Philips, an RBI double from Dylan Perry and a gameending RBI single by Colin Toalson. Preston Schenck also had two hits, scored two runs and drove in another. “I couldn’t feel my hands,” Perry joked after the game. Toalson, who also doubled in a run in the fifth, got the win after throwing the final five innings in relief. “I thought he was outstanding,” Hill said of Toalson, who allowed two hits and struck out five for his second win of the season. The Firebirds will take on Rogers (Ark.) at 11:30 a.m. today at Hoglund Ballpark.

“Certainly it was a difficult day for both teams to play defensively,” FSHS coach Mike Hill said. “They’re plays we need to make. But you give a little bit of a mulligan playing on a raw, wet day like this.” “I was pleased that, after we kicked it around early, we settled down defensively,” Hill added. Down 4-3 in the third after chipping a way for a few runs early, the Firebird bats began teeing off on any pitch left up in the strike zone. Preston Schenck and Cody Kukuk began the inning with back-to-back doubles and Tim Lewis smacked an RBI single to pull FSHS ahead 5-4.

Pioli prepares for third draft K A N S A S C I T Y , M O . ( AP ) — Whenever somebody points to Tom Brady as proof of Scott Pioli’s genius for evaluating football talent, he points to someone else he took in that same New England draft of 2000. While future Super Bowl MVP Brady had to wait until the sixth round for Pioli to call his name, Dave Stachelski waited only until round five. A tight end out of Boise State, Stachelski stayed two years with the Patriots and caught exactly one pass for 5 yards. Brady, who could so easily have been picked off by another team, is hailed as one of the greatest quarterbacks in NFL history. So, Pioli asks rhetorically, how smart was he really? Smart enough, as he prepares for his third draft as general manager of the Chiefs, to stick with the formula that worked so well in a nine-year stint in New England while the Patriots grew into the NFL’s most dominant franchise and Pioli became one of the league’s most respected executives. First, he will work to absorb every tidbit of information about every player the Chiefs might consider. He’ll be sure everyone else on his staff does the same. Then he’ll make sure the pre-draft meetings with scouts and coaches are filled with lively disagreement, that nobody is afraid to speak up. The 45-year-old Pioli does not simply tolerate dissension in meetings. He insists on it. “Some guys like to argue about anything up there just because it’s part of the mood,” Pioli said. “Arguing is probably too negative a word. I think what happens is, different people see things different ways, see players different ways. When different people sit down with the individual players, they can be involved in answering the same ques-

This year will be Pioli’s third draft with the Chiefs. tions or hearing the same questions answered. They just have a different perception of where the player may be coming from or what they’re saying. The discussions range from the player’s ability, their athleticism, their production.” Scouts and evaluators learn their opinions will always be valued. “We want them to have their own opinions, and they understand and know it’s a healthy

thing to disagree and it’s the same thing with the coaches,” Pioli said. “There’s never a feeling of intimidation or putting people down. I’ve seen and heard of places where when there are disagreements, they’ll either throw someone’s opinion out the window or they’ll talk a person down, be disrespectful. There’s no components of disrespect within our meetings.” In 2009, the Chiefs used their No. 3 overall pick on LSU

defensive end Tyson Jackson, who didn’t have much impact. In fact, the only ’09 draftee who did much was Mr. Irrelevant, the last player selected: Kicker Ryan Succop was 25 for 29 for an 86.2 percent accuracy that was fifth best in team history. Last year was much, much more satisfying to Chiefs fans. Six of the first seven players Pioli wound up selecting in his second draft as GM happened to be college team captains and many turned out to be good NFL players right away, including safety Eric Berry, tight end Tony Moeaki and the speedy Dexter McCluster. Pioli has structured his scouting staff to include a mix of veteran and young. “We want people to have opinions,” he said. “Last year was a perfect example. A couple of times there were some people in the leadership group who didn’t necessarily see players or a player a certain way. We asked them to play lawyer, so to speak, and have evidence why you disagree” — and sometimes “we get convinced to go back and do more work.” After the Chiefs won just two games under Herm Edwards the season before Pioli arrived, he drafted third overall in 2009. After winning four games in his first season here, Pioli’s Chiefs owned the No. 5 overall pick in 2010. But after winning 10 games last season and capturing the AFC West, the Chiefs, barring a trade, will have to wait a while before they make their first selection at No. 21. “We see a team that’s started to make some progress and we’re encouraged by some of the things we did last year,” Pioli said Friday. “But we also have an acute understanding that we are still very far off from what we want to be and what kind of football team we want to have.”

IN THE RAIN, A FAN STANDS AND WATCHES the Royals-Mariners game from the outfield seats Friday in Kansas City, Mo.


Butler, who also had three hits, doubled. Francoeur’s inf ield single in the f irst scored Chris Getz, who led off the inning with a walk. “You know if you score a few runs you get an advantage because it’s so cold and raining,” Francoeur said. “Hochevar was phenomenal. They get nothing after Ichiro’s hit. From there he rolled. “I know he wasn’t extremely happy with is first two starts, but the last two starts he’s comeback and been throwing lights outs. For him to pound the strike zone like he did tonight was fun to play behind on a cold night.” Mariners left-hander Erik Bedard (0-3), who missed all of last season after having his third shoulder surgery in as many years and has not won since June 7, 2009, took the loss. He gave up five runs and seven hits in 4 2⁄3 innings. He walked three and struck out six. Matt Treanor led off the fourth with a home run, giving the Royals a 4-1 lead. Bedard

has given up six home runs in 13 2⁄3 innings in three starts. The Royals added a run in the fifth when Mike Aviles double scored Francoeur, who had singled. Butler, who also had three hits, contributed a run-producing single in the sixth for the final Kansas City run. Suzuki also had a RBI-single in the eighth, giving him a record 10 consecutive multi-hit

games at Kauffman Stadium. Royals Hall of Famer George Brett held the record with nine straight multi-hit games at Kaufman Stadium in May, 1979. After rookie left-hander Tim Collins walked the first two Mariners in the ninth, Joakim Soria was summoned and logged his fourth save in five opportunities, but not before allowing three runs, including walking pinch hitter Justin Smoak with the bases loaded. Soria, who has a 7.04 earned run average, allowed both inherited runners to score and gave up another run on two walks, a hit and a wild pitch. “No excuses,” Soria said. “It was just a bad outing for me. We got lucky in that one.” The Mariners, who have lost 10 of their past 12, are hitting .214 and have only 32 extra-base hit in 14 games. Notes: OF Mitch Maier started his first game of the season as manager Ned Yost gave LF Alex Gordon a rest. Maier has five plate-appearances this season and has yet to put the ball in play — three strikeouts and two walks. ...

Blue Jays 7, Red Sox 6 BOSTON — Jose Bautista singled in the go-ahead run in a four-run seventh inning and Toronto deepened the misery of struggling Boston with a win. The Red Sox dropped to 210, matching their poorest

start in history and making the worst record in baseball even worse. They did hit two homers after managing just seven in their first 11 games but finished with only five hits. Toronto

Indians 8, Orioles 2 CLEVELAND — Justin Masterson pitched seven strong innings for his third win, Asdrubal Cabrera had four RBIs and the surprising Cleveland Indians kept the AL Central standings flipped upside down with a win. Masterson (3-0) allowed just one run and four singles. He went 6-13 last season, and didn’t get his third win until July 1 — in his 16th start. The Orioles have lost five straight since a stunning 6-1 start. At 9-4, Cleveland is off to its best start since 2002.

Marlins 4, Phillies 3 PHILADELPHIA — Pinch-hitter Greg Dobbs hit a go-ahead two-run single against his former team. It may have been a costly loss for the NL East-leading Phillies because Roy Oswalt left with a lower back strain. Oswalt pitched six impressive innings before getting hurt. He allowed two runs and four hits, striking out six. He didn’t allow a hit until Logan Morrison led off the fifth with a home run into Philadelphia’s bullpen. Florida

Easter candy: Reminder of the holiday, or commercialism? ————

Easter candy should be eaten in celebration of the holiday The Rev. Mitch Todd, associate pastor, First United Methodist Church, 946 Vt.: And on the eighth day, God created the Cadbury Crème Egg. No wait, that’s not right. The candy eggs have been around just three decades. There was no Cadbury Crème Egg at the last supper. Mary was not holding a chocolate bunny as she watched her son crucified. The women were not carrying baskets of jelly beans as they raced to the tomb. Hmm. Maybe candy and Easter don’t go hand-in-hand after all. But wait. There would have most certainly been celebrations after Jesus’ appearances. There would have

been rejoicing and lifting glasses and laughing and feasting. That’s the point of the abrupt transition from the sorrow of Good Friday to the feast of Easter: Guess what! Christ is risen! Let’s party! I’m guessing there was candy involved in that first Easter celebration. Maybe something with dates? How about Turkish delight? That’s been around for Todd thousands of years. I’m convinced that the disciples and other followers would have been so filled with joy that they would have feasted

and partied like crazy. Shouldn’t we? You bet! So break out the candy. Eat until your tummy hurts. Hide Easter eggs for the kiddies. Go see the movie “Hop,” even. Celebrate in a 1,001 different ways the joy of Jesus’ eternal love for us. But do yourself a favor: Be intentionally mindful of the reason for the party. It’s not just an excuse for fun. It’s the ultimate victory over the forces of darkness and death! So, enjoy your Cadbury Crème Egg. Have half-adozen if you feel so inclined. Just remember, Christ may later ask you to work off those calories. That’s the part that’s called discipleship.

Easter candy has nothing to do with the resurrection of Christ all we’re talking about the greatest moment in history, the moment when Jesus Christ rose up from the grave. How can anything sugary and sticky like a marshmallow rabbit compete with the defeat of sin and death by the son of God? Let’s be clear, Easter is not a day that should O’Flannagan simply pass us by, it’s a day to stop and contemplate the historical fact that our access to God has been made

The Rev. Gary O’Flannagan, pastor, Cornerstone Southern Baptist Church, 802 W. 22nd St.: Usually at a religious holiday season Christians get put down for co-opting a pagan holiday but at Easter our American culture has coopted the resurrection of Jesus Christ into an opportunity for commercialism. Candy Easter eggs, chocolate bunnies and multi-colored jelly beans in truth were never intended to be reminders of Easter. Yes, they’re tasty and it can be a lot of fun to hide and then go f ind them, but they have nothing to do with the resurrection of Jesus Christ. After

He was put to death in the body but made alive by the spirit.” 1Peter 3:18 (NIV) In the early Christian church, the preacher would stand before the congregation on Resurrection Sunday and proclaim, “He is risen,” the congregation would then respond with great joy, “He is risen indeed.” Happy Easter and God bless you on this greatest of days. — Send e-mail to Gary O’Flannagan at

‘Real King’s Speech’ charts unexpected path to throne “The Real King’s Speech” (6 p.m., Discovery) examines the real-life drama behind the Oscar-winning motion picture. The story of George VI and his stammer has only recently come to light. “Real” examines the pressures brought to bear on an extraordinarily shy man who had had never expected to ascend the throne. Thrust into the role after the abdication of his brother, George was the first monarch of the emerging radio age. World leaders from Franklin Roosevelt to Adolf Hitler had made much of the mass media, so in order to lead, George VI knew that his voice would have to enter the intimacy of every parlor in Great Britain. ● The network that brought us “Dirty Jobs” now delivers “Filthy Cities” (7 p.m., Discovery). Host Don Wildman uses computer graphics to “travel” back in time to visit urban areas at their most squalid. First up is Medieval London, a 14th-century dungheap where 80,000 people were packed into one square mile. Next Wildman visits “New Stinking York” (8 p.m.) a technical rendering of Manhattan in the 19th century, a place teeming with immigrants who arrived only to discover that the streets weren’t exactly paved with gold. ● The Hallmark Channel never sets their movies in Filthy Cities. Tonight’s offering “The Shunning” (8 p.m., Hallmark) takes place in Lancaster, Pennsylvania’s “Plain” community where a soon-tobe married Amish girl discovers that she was not born to the faith, but given up for adoption as an infant. This throws a wrinkle into her wedding plans and leaves the would-be bride caught between two worlds. Sherry Stringfield stars.

Tonight’s other highlights ● Fans of Woody and Buzz can watch “Toy Story” (5:05 p.m., Starz), “Toy Story 2” (6:26 p.m.) and “Toy Story 3” (8 p.m.) without changing the channel. ● A job seeker fakes a marriage in the 2011 romantic comedy “Truth Be Told” (7 p.m., Fox). “Idol” contestant Danny Gokey cameos. ● Johnny Depp stars in the 2006 sequel “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest” (7 p.m., ABC). ● Scheduled on “48 Hours Mystery” (9 p.m., CBS): the not so certain case against Casey Anthony. ● Gwyneth Paltrow hosts “Saturday Night Live” (10:30 p.m., NBC), featuring musical guest Cee Lo Green. Cult choice A lovesick loser (Dudley Moore) makes a deal with the devil (Peter Cook) in the 1967 comedy “Bedazzled” (9 p.m., Saturday, Fox Movie Channel). Saturday series Suicide by murder on “CSI” (7 p.m., CBS) ... On two episodes of “Law & Order: Los Angeles” (NBC), Zuma Canyon (7 p.m.), Silver Lake (8 p.m.) ... A prison escapee wants revenge on “Hawaii FiveO” (8 p.m., CBS) ... Schoolyard accusations on “Law & Order: SVU” (9 p.m., NBC).

Dear Annie: You told “Upset,” whose husband has no interest in sex, to have his testosterone level checked. Because “Upset” specifically mentioned their sleeping apart was due to his serious snoring, I suspect a much more likely cause of the problem is obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). OSA is an insidious and treacherous health condition. The American Academy of Sleep Medicine estimates that at least 20 percent of adults are affected. Sleep apnea is now known to be linked to cardiovascular disease, heart attacks and strokes, diabetes, ED, depression and numerous other health problems. The fatigue from poor sleep increases the risk of traffic and work-related accidents by 300 percent or more. It makes sense that if one’s breathing is being choked off hundreds of times a night by an obstructed airway, bad things happen. Common signs and symptoms of airway obstruction affecting breathing and sleep include: excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS), snoring, hypertension, erectile dysfunction, personality changes, memory problems, a history of heart attack, stroke or other cardiovascular disease, and a history of diabetes. New research shows that more than 80 percent of diabetic patients may have sleep apnea.
