RIDERS COME AND GO ON CITY BUSES MONDAY AFTERNOON at Ninth and New Hampshire streets. Several changes are in store for the bus system, including the addition of late-night rides, summer passes for students and the relocation of the city’s main transfer station.

City to begin late-night transit service; concerns grow over passes for shelter By Chad Lawhorn clawhorn@ljworld.com

How to schedule a late-night bus ride

Lawrence’s late-night bus experiment is set to begin June 1. City officials have finalized the details of a new overnight public transit service that will provide bus service from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. Monday through Saturday. What city officials don’t know is how many people will use the service. Figuring that out is a major point of the new program that received city funding last year as a one-year pilot project. “This is a question I want to get answered,� said Robert Nugent, the city’s public transit administrator. “The community has long said

Late-night riders can call a city number, 312-7054, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays, to schedule a ride. Fares for the service will be $2 each way, which is double the standard fare for the city’s standard transit buses. that if we provided service at night, the public really would use it. I don’t know what the demand will be. There’s a lot of buzz about it. I hope the ridership is as big as the buzz.� Using the new service, however, will require some planning. The service will operate with a “demandresponse� system, meaning it will provide rides only to people who call ahead and schedule a bus to pick them up.

When commissioners last year approved $250,000 in funding for the pilot project, they said they wanted the system to focus on providing service to third-shift workers who needed a way to get to their jobs. They didn’t want to create a service that competed with Kansas University’s SafeRide program, which provides late-night transportation to students. Nugent said the premium fare and the need to sched-

ule rides well in advance of the pick-up should make it unlikely the service will be used by late-night partiers. “If you have to call in before 5 p.m. to schedule a ride, I would think it is going to be pretty tough to know where you are going to be at 2 a.m.,� Nugent said. Riders of the system will be allowed to call and create a standing appointment, such as a bus picking them up to go to work at the same time each day, Nugent said. Appointments will be filled as they are taken. The $250,000 in funding will allow for two buses to operate during the nighttime hours Nugent said.

For what might be the first time in more than 130 years, a sitting U.S. president is on his way to Kansas University. And the reaction from KU students, as far as sophomore Rachel Hagan can tell, has been a resounding, “Huh?� “A lot of people are saying, just, why?� Hagan said as she Obama sat around a table with some friends at the Underground eating space in Wescoe Hall at lunchtime Monday. “But aside from all the ‘whys,’ I’m excited it’s happening.� Other students, too, reported their enthusiasm about the imminent visit from President Barack Obama on Friday, which KU announced this past weekend.

Another tax year, another scramble to make deadline By Giles Bruce gbruce@ljworld.com

When asked why he waited until April 15 to do his taxes this year, Lawrence factory worker Victor Roman didn’t procrastinate in giving his answer. “Procrastination,� he said. Roman wasn’t alone. Many Americans put off filing their tax returns until Tax Day, which was Monday, and even then, many apply for extensions. According to the Internal Revenue Service, about one-third of tax filers don’t even begin the process until April, with the majority of those waiting to file until the final few days. It’s not always because of laziness or forgetfulness, though. As Jerry Coatney, of Liberty Tax Service, 1530 W. Sixth St., explained Monday, taxpayers often wait to find out what their tax liability is before deciding whether to open an individual retirement account to try to reduce it. Also, he said, many businesses spend Please see TAXES, page 2A

MARY SUE GILKESON Mary Sue Gilkeson died peacefully at her home on Sunday, April 14, 2013. She was born in Topeka, KS, on August 19, 1914, to Susan Bingham and Ralph K. Ball. She attended Topeka schools and graduated from Washburn University in Topeka in 1936 with a B.A. degree. Sue married her college sweetheart, Washburn law graduate Leo William Mulloy, in 1939, and the couple moved to Wichita, KS where Mr. Mulloy was an attorney at the Federal Land Bank. He later served as public relations director for Boeing during WWII, led the successful campaign for legalized liquor in Kansas in 1947, and practiced law until he died in 1960. Sue married Hunter Boyd Gilkeson, owner of Lusco Brick & Stone, in 1968, and they were happily together for thirty years until his death at age 89 in 1998. She moved to Lawrence following her 90th birthday to live with her daughter.

the days leading up to April 15 gathering their tax information to file extensions. Still, Coatney admitted, “There’s a lot of procrastination.” Lawrence residents Jasmine Murphree and Kara Partridge would admit they fit that description. Murphree discovered Monday was Tax Day after hearing it announced on the radio, while Partridge learned about it from her boyfriend. They dug up their W-2s and headed over to Liberty Tax Service’s Sixth Street office. “I’m just lazy,” said Partridge, who, like Murphree, goes to school at Johnson County Community College and works at Checkers Foods, 2300 Louisiana St. “Usually my uncle does my taxes. Since he’s retired from the IRS, he doesn’t do it anymore.” The girls wouldn’t recommend waiting till the last minute to others. “Earlier is way better,” Murphree said, with Partridge adding: “It’s less

stressful.” It was a hectic scene at local tax preparers and post offices Monday, as residents rushed to meet the April 15 deadline for filing their income taxes. “It’s been crazy. It’s been really crazy,” a female employee at H&R Block, 2104 W. 25th St., said Monday, before declining to comment further — because it was too busy. Coatney once again bailed out the slackers, saying there might be another reason Tax Day 2013 was so chaotic. “The economy’s improving, so there’s more people who are filing taxes as opposed to last year,” he said. But that had nothing to do with why Roman why was in line behind several other last-minute filers at Jackson Hewitt Tax Service, 947 E. 23rd St., early Monday afternoon. So, when did he realize it was Tax Day? “This morning, when I woke up and looked at the calendar,” he said. Why didn’t he do his taxes sooner? “I just had a lot of things going on,” he said, before adding: “But mostly procrastination.”

Other local connections As news of the bombing at the Boston Marathon’s finish line spread Monday afternoon, Lawrence’s close-knit running community compared notes on the whereabouts of friends they knew who were participating. While seven Lawrence runners were signed up to run in the marathon, only four actually participated, according to the Boston Athletic Association’s athlete tracker. Tiffany Francis, John Frydman and Benjamin Jones all finished the race before the explosions, with each completing the 26.2-mile event in less than four hours. The status of the fourth Lawrence participant, Jodie Cochrane, could not immediately be determined. She had a half-marathon split time of 1:51:29. “I have been getting several inquiries as to whether we have any Dog Day people at the marathon,” Beverly Gardner, wife of community workout leader Don “Red Dog” Gardner, whose group includes Francis and Frydman, wrote in an email. “We know that everyone is OK but that is the only information that I have received. This is such a terrible thing that has happened, and everyone involved could use your prayers.” According to Dan Harris, former athletic director at Baker University, his son and daughter-inlaw, Kit and Sarah Harris, were at the Boston Marathon with their 13-yearold son, Cael. Kit Harris teaches English at Baldwin High School. Dan said Sarah ran the marathon and was about two and a half miles from the finish when the bombs went off. Kit later posted to his Facebook account: “We are all 3 safe at our hotel now. We finally got cab ride out of city and are fine. Thank you everybody for texts/calls. Sorry could not reply. Cell service was awful and everybody was on their phones. And Cael & I were trying to get to Sarah, we didn’t know where she was & vice versa for a while.”

Mathay, 26, said he crossed the finish line about 45 seconds before the first of two explosions went off about 75 yards behind him. “If I had run about a second slower a mile, or if I hadn’t run as fast as I did with this gentleman at the end,” Mathay said, “maybe circumstances would be different.” At first, Mathay didn’t react much to the “big boom” that he heard. As an avid marathon runner — he’s taken part in four since October — he knew that many times event organizers shot off cannons when famous people crossed the finish line. “But then, I could tell people were concerned. People started screaming,” Mathay said. “And right when I turned around was when the second explosion happened.” Mathay said he noticed a plume of smoke about 70 to 100 feet in the air. People were running past the finish line — not a common sight following a 26.2-mile race. Because runners are confined by gates past the finish line, many people were trying to run to break free of the crowd. A few older people around Mathay worked to keep the order, telling folks they needed to walk or everyone was going to get trampled. Despite the confusion, finish-line volunteers continued their routine, handing out medals and bananas to competitors while other runners were wrapped in space blankets. “No one could say what had actually taken place,” Mathay said. “Over time, as you saw the looks on everyone else’s faces, and of course the sirens started ... so you knew something had gone wrong.” Afterward Mathay — he lives in Boston and ran in the race as a “bandit,” meaning he didn’t sign up and didn’t have an official time — walked a block and a half to his friend’s house, continuing to look over his shoulder to try to piece together what had happened.

J-W Staff Reports

Wes Jackson, a Kansas University alumnus and a leader in the area of sustainable agriculture, will be the lead speaker at KU’s commencement ceremony in May, the university announced Monday. Jackson, who earned a master’s degree from KU, founded The Land Institute. Based in Salina, the institute researches environmentally friendly farming techniques in pursuit of an agricultural system that more closely emulates nature. Jackson is one of three people who Jackson will receive honorary KU degrees for 2013, the second year that KU has granted such degrees. He grew up on a farm outside of Topeka and earned a bachelor’s degree from Kansas Wesleyan University and a doctorate from North Carolina State University. He founded an environmental studies program at California State University, Sacramento, before founding The Land Institute in 1976. Jackson has received the Pew Conservation Scholars award and a MacArthur Fellowship (or “genius grant�), among other honors. He will be the second honorary degree recipient to deliver the chief address at KU’s commencement, which, for many years didn’t feature a guest speaker, leaving the address to the KU chancellor.

He was nowhere near the wooded area in Maryland where 9-year-old Dawn Hamilton was found raped and murdered, her head crushed by a piece of concrete.

Former death row inmate shares story of exoneration, wants to end death penalty By Ian Cummings icummings@ljworld.com

Kirk Bloodsworth wants the death penalty abolished in Kansas. And in every other state, and in every nation across the world. He’s absolute on that point, and many feel he has a right to be that way. The death penalty almost killed Bloodsworth in 1985, when he was convicted and sentenced to death for a murder he didn’t commit. The former Marine was exonerated by DNA testing in 1993, and travels the country as the advocacy director for Witness to Innocence, an organization of exonerated death row survivors. Bloodsworth visited Kansas

for the first time Monday, at the invitation of Kansas University student groups, and told his story at the Kansas Memorial Union. It’s a frightening Bloodsworth story, and Bloodsworth hopes that the more people hear it, the more will agree with him that the death penalty isn’t safe to use. Some Kansas lawmakers and judges already agree with him, and a bill to abolish the death penalty is awaiting action in the Legislature. “I really don’t want this to happen to anyone else,� Bloodsworth

But House Appropriations Chairman Marc Rhoades, R-Newton, said tuition at universities in recent years has gone up much higher than the rate of inflation. “The average graduate leaves with $22,000 in debt and a diploma which may or may not translate into a real-world job.

reer and Technology Education program, which is aimed at helping students get marketable skills when they enter the workforce. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cutting funding for the community and technical colleges that support the CTE program would hinder students from obtaining industry-recognized credentials by the time they graduate from high school and diminish the workforce pool for businesses,â&#x20AC;? Brownback said. The issue of higher education funding will be tied closely to tax discussions in the Legislature. Brownback wants to keep in place the 6.3 percent state sales tax rate, which was supposed to decrease to 5.7 percent on July 1. The Senate has agreed to that position but not the House. Brownback has said his budget proposals are linked to keeping the state sales tax higher, but House Minority Leader Paul Davis, D-Lawrence, said that was a false argument. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kansans deserve to

know that Gov. Brownbackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sales tax hike is not being offered to pay for higher education. It is paying for massive tax breaks for the wealthy and big corporations,â&#x20AC;? Davis said. Davis added, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Further, a sales tax hike is not a solution â&#x20AC;&#x201D; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a stall tactic. Even if Gov. Brownback does raise the sales tax, Kansas will still face a $781 million deficit by 2018 as a result of his income tax cuts.â&#x20AC;? Last year, Brownback signed into law cuts in state income tax rates, eliminating income taxes for the owners of nearly 200,000 businesses and doing away with tax credits designed to help low-income Kansans. Brownback has said the income tax cuts will boost the economy while Democrats say the cuts will benefit mostly the wealthy at the expense of the poor and funding of crucial state services, such as education.

Penalty

1993, after DNA testing showed he was innocent. His story sounds incredible, but Bloodsworth is just one of 142 people in the U.S. to be sentenced to death and later found innocent. Hundreds of more people convicted of crimes, like Kansans Eddie Lowery and Joe Jones, have spent decades in prison before being exonerated. Bloodsworth and likeminded advocates were successful in getting the death penalty repealed in Maryland this year, and the Kansas Coalition Against the Death Penalty is making a similar effort in Kansas. Rep. Steven Becker, R-Buhler, a former judge, introduced a bill in March that would replace capital punishment with a sentence of life without parole. In many states, this produces significant savings in prison budgets, and the measure would take that money to establish a fund to assist families of homicide victims.

in the country to be exonerated by DNA evidence. Part of his challenge now is to help people understand how easily it can happen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If it can happen to me, it can happen to anybody,â&#x20AC;? Bloodsworth said. It started when a neighbor, thinking Bloodsworth resembled a police sketch of the murder suspect, called authorities, who were under intense pressure to solve the shocking killing. Five witnesses testified to seeing Bloodsworth near the scene or with the victim, but they were wrong. In prison, Bloodsworth occupied a cell directly above Kimberly Shay Ruffner, a convicted rapist who would later be linked by DNA to the rape and murder of Dawn Hamilton. Ruffner did not particularly resemble the police sketch circulated by authorities. Bloodsworth was released from prison in

Nutritionist relishes working with women, infants, kids By Karrey Britt Lawrence-Douglas County Health Department

Trish Unruh joined the Lawrence-Douglas County Health Department 10 years ago as a nutritionist in the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children, commonly called WIC. She said she enjoys her job because she gets to work with breast-feeding women and their children up to 5 years old. Her work includes reviewing measurements and providing referrals, education and counseling. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What I love about nutrition is you really learn about people when you talk about eating and family traditions around eating,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You get a glimpse into their life and lifestyle.â&#x20AC;? Unruh also helps coordinate an annual fall event called Kickinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; It With WIC, which centers on the importance of physical activity. Last month, she helped launch a new event Cookinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; With WIC, which focuses on gardening and the importance of eating healthy. A few years ago, Unruh became the coordinator of a new community effort called LiveWell EatWell. The goal is to help restaurants provide healthier options and to recognize restaurants that already

â&#x20AC;&#x153;What I love about nutrition is you really learn about people when you talk about eating and family traditions around eating. You get a glimpse into their life and lifestyle.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Nutritionist Trish Unruh

offer them. Unruh meets with restaurant owners and managers and they talk about the menu and what the barriers are to providing more nutritious foods. Unfortunately, she said,

the barrier seems to be that unhealthy options are the best-sellers, so Unruh urges consumers to speak up for healthier options such as fresh fruit or steamed vegetables as a side.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The more restaurants hear those requests, the more likely they will add those healthier options to their regular menus,â&#x20AC;? she said. She does feel that progress is being made; for example, some restaurants are switching from whole milk to 1 percent milk and they are using whole grains. Unruh served on the Health Departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wellness committee for a few years and was instrumental in starting a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program for Health Department staff

members last year. The CSA is provided through a student-run garden project called Growing Food, Growing Health, which involves The Community Mercantile Education Foundation staff and Lawrence students. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Trish continues to seek out learning opportunities and loves to stay active on community initiatives such as LiveWell EatWell and the CSA project,â&#x20AC;? WIC coordinator Jennifer Church said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Trish practices empathy daily with clients and provides pertinent education based on the clientâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s individual needs.â&#x20AC;? Unruh grew up in the Kansas City area and received her bachelorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree in dietetics from Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, and then earned a masterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree in public health with an emphasis in nutrition from the University of North Carolina. She worked in a hospital for a few years in Columbia, Mo., and then worked for Humana in Kansas City for 11 years. Unruh said she got into nutrition because of her own personal struggles with weight as an adolescent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I went on some pretty wild diets to lose weight,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What I learned when I started eating with balance and moderation was I could lose weight and feel great.â&#x20AC;?

Car accident survivor advocates making health care decisions By Karrey Britt Lawrence-Douglas County Health Department

Nearly two years ago, Lawrence resident Corey Roelofs was involved in a head-on collision on an Interstate highway in western Illinois in which the driver of the oncoming car was killed. Roelofs was critically injured and was taken by ambulance to St. Louis University Hospital, where he was in intensive care for a week. At age 28, he hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t thought about advance health care plans or a durable power of attorney for health care. He hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even had a conversation about what kind of care he would want with his parents or his wife. He knew the importance of having such documents and conversations because he worked as a nurse at Kansas University Hospital, but he thought he was

Kansas Democratic Party Chairwoman Joan Wagnon did say Monday that the White House told state party officials it was looking for a site that could hold 3,000 to 6,000 people for an afternoon event. Though the situation might be confusing for locals, this is often how it goes when the president is coming to town, said Bill Lacy, director of KUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dole Institute of Politics. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really nothing odd going on here,â&#x20AC;? Lacy said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is pretty standard stuff. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fun to get to watch it up close and personal, for a change.â&#x20AC;? Lacy made it clear he was not at all involved in the planning for Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s visit and had no knowledge of what is happening. But as a former White House political director under Ronald Reagan, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s had some experience with presidential scheduling. And in general, Lacy said, the presidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s schedule is set on his terms and his alone. Except in the case of a major event where the presidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attendance is a given, such as the Democratic National Convention, things are usually kept open until a few days beforehand. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The presidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s schedule is not set nearly as far ahead as everybody would think that it would be,â&#x20AC;? Lacy said. So, for now, people are left to wonder what time of day Obama might appear in public â&#x20AC;&#x201D; if, of course, he appears in public at all. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we know heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be available, I will be there,â&#x20AC;? KU sophomore Davis St. Aubin said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;if Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not taking a test.â&#x20AC;? Other students said they would do whatever they needed to do to see the president, if the chance arose. Junior Kyle Maddox said that if that means

ect LIVELY, a program at the Lawrence-Douglas County Health Department that helps seniors remain independent and in their homes. Roelofs often helps elderly residents with their advance health care plans. If a health care crisis emerges and they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have plans, he said, families can be torn apart. Children can be left wondering whether they made the right decision. Sometimes, cases end up in court. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve learned one thing, both personally and professionally, about these decisions, it has to be that the hospital is definitely not the place to make them,â&#x20AC;? Roelofs said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My hope would be that we can help families begin this conversation now, apart from the crisis and urgency that an unexpected hospitalization creates.â&#x20AC;? Roelofs also will participate in a panel discussion about how to engage family in these often difficult but important conversations. The panel also will answer questions from the audience. The event is free and open to the public. It is sponsored by the Lawrence-area Coalition to Honor End-Of-Life Choices and LMH. For more information, call 749-5800.

â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Bill Lacy, director of KUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dole Institute of Politics, on the lack of information surrounding President Barack Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s visit to Lawrence later this week heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have to miss his 1 p.m. class Friday, then so be it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Who would honestly miss that chance?â&#x20AC;? Maddox said. Uncertainty is simply part of the game when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re dealing with the president, Lacy said. He laughed when recalling that event organizers would sometimes be peeved when Reaganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s staff couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t confirm a month in advance that the president would be accepting an invitation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would say to them, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to have an answer today, the only answer I can give today is no,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Lacy said. The president has a lim-

ment agencies. So a presidential visit would mean a whole host of security plans to work out. And if thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a public event involved, Lacy said, the White House will need to figure out how to admit attendees. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The job of moving the president around and protecting him is a really big job,â&#x20AC;? Lacy said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But the people who do it are extraordinarily professional. And theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re used to doing these things turning on a dime.â&#x20AC;? Several students Monday wondered how that huge operation might affect life on campus on Friday, especially when it comes to traffic and parking. Even KUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Young Democrats group isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sure what it will be able to do. But senior Evan Gates, who just stepped down as the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s president as she prepares to graduate, said theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be pumped whatever happens. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to see what he ends up talking about, and if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a public event, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll definitely do our best to be there,â&#x20AC;? Gates said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If not, our

plan is to be a welcoming group for him.â&#x20AC;? And senior Jacob Peterson, president of the KU College Republicans, said he thought the news of the visit was great, too, and not just because he hoped thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be a chance to ask the president some questions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good anytime that we have any political leader on campus,â&#x20AC;? Peterson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good chance to get people involved, and we want people, regardless of where they stand, to get involved with politics.â&#x20AC;? And a chance like this is rare: Mike Reid, a spokesman for the KU Memorial Unions who runs the website KUHistory.com, said

his best guess after some research was that the last sitting U.S. president to visit the KU campus was Rutherford B. Hayes in 1879. Even with all the questions, senior C.J. Harries said, it should be quite the day Friday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whether Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d vote for him or not, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be really cool for the president to come,â&#x20AC;? Harries said. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Kansas University reporter Matt Erickson can be reached at 832-6388.

ited amount of time to devote to pursuing his agenda, Lacy said, so he canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t clog his schedule by committing to events weeks in advance. So that would explain why the time might not be set. But that was hardly the only question popping up on campus Monday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why Kansas?â&#x20AC;? freshman Fiona Wood said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why now?â&#x20AC;? Lacy said he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to get into speculation on what the visit may be about, but he said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s typical for the White House to need a good amount of time to work out logistics. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The White House may not know what they want to do, or they may know what they want to do,â&#x20AC;?

other on what was also Patriots Day. Dazed and bloodied victims walked around seeking help as officials rushed to their aid, taking them to one of the medical tents that dot any marathon route. Some victims had severed limbs. There was no immediate claim of responsibility and officials said there had been no warning to what officials were considering an act of terrorism. “Any event with multiple explosive devices — as this appears to be — is clearly an act of terror, and will be approached as an act of terror,” one federal official said. “However, we don’t yet know who carried out this attack, and a thorough investigation will have to determine whether it was planned and carried out by a terrorist group, foreign or domestic.” President Barack Obama pledged federal help for the investigation and cautioned people not to jump to conclusions. But he also struck a firm note. “But make no mistake, we will get to the bottom of this. And we will find out who did this; we’ll find out why they did this. Any responsible individuals, any responsible groups, will feel the full weight of justice,” he said from the White House hours after the tragedy. “We’re still in the investigation stage at this point,” Obama said. “But I just want to reiterate we will find out who did this and we will hold them accountable.”

No official suspects Boston officials told reporters at a nationally televised briefing that there were no suspects, but they acknowledged they were questioning some people. A federal law enforcement official said authorities were questioning a Saudi national who was taken to a Boston hospital with injuries. The official also said authorities are

“desperately seeking” a Penske rental truck seen leaving the race site. Another federal official said that authorities believe the explosive devices were small bombs placed in small receptacles and that at least one was detonated in a trash can. Another federal official said the bombs appear to have been “unsophisticated” and did not include plastic explosives. Patriots Day commemorates the first battles of the American Revolution. One of the highlights is the marathon, which attracts runners from around the world. This year, about 27,000 runners were eligible to compete. The elite runners finished in 2 1/2 to 3 hours. More than five hours into the race, as the main body of athletes moved toward the finish line, at least two explosions shattered the celebratory mood. Both were along Boylston Street. The explosions were “nearly back to back” along the viewing area, witnesses said. Two more devices were “quickly found and dismantled” nearby, said an official with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. Another object was found inside a “military style” duffel bag, but it was unclear whether it was connected to the main explosions, the ATF official said. A sixth “event” took place near the JFK Library, but that was later discounted as an unrelated fire. The area of the blasts was a major trauma scene as ambulances rushed by and officials tried to move people to hospitals. Officials said at least three people had died. The Associated Press reported that at least 144 injured were hospitalized, with 17 in critical condition. Two volunteers working security near the finish line still appeared stunned hours after the explosion. One, who had just eaten lunch in the area five minutes before the blasts, said, “It’s your worst nightmare. Somebody wants to make a statement, and you have

Nugent said he has told people concerned about the number of bus passes available at the shelter to begin advocating for more funding for the bus pass program. He said he believed allowing free riders at certain points on the system could create significant operational problems. Henderson said his staff “certainly could give out a lot more bus passes than they have,” but he hasn’t asked the city for more passes. Instead, he is trying to deal with the increased transportation needs through the use of the shelter’s van and through volunteers who provide rides to shelter guests. Henderson, though, said the task has been difficult at times. He said through March, the shelter’s transportation costs are about 33 percent above budget.

A petition is circulating in downtown Lawrence about a plan to temporarily move the city’s main transit transfer station to the 800 block of Vermont Street. As previously reported, city buses would use the east side of Vermont Street to park and load and unload passengers in downtown. A new location will be needed once construction begins on the new Marriott hotel at Ninth and New Hampshire streets, which is where the transfers now take place. The new location, however, will eliminate 13 parking spaces on Vermont Street. Dave Seal, owner of Framewoods Gallery at 819 Massachu-

setts St., has organized a petition drive asking city commissioners to reconsider the location. Several businesses in the 800 block of Massachusetts Street use the public parking along Vermont Street, which is directly behind their stores. Seal said the timing is particularly bad because the library’s parking lot already is closed as part of the library’s expansion project. “We’re already short on downtown parking,” Seal said. “I don’t know the answer, but we are trying to get their attention.” Seal recently said the petition at his store had about 40 signatures, and there were petitions at a handful of other locations. Nugent said his office has evaluated other locations since the concerns have mounted. He said he reviewed placing the transfer station near 10th and Kentucky streets where the Lawrence Community Shelter previously was located. But he said the area would need significant upgrades to its sidewalks and curb areas to meet accessibility standards. Nugent said the department is waiting to receive word on when construction at the Marriott site will necessitate a move. “We have a good plan in place to make the move, as long as the Vermont Street space remains available to us,” Nugent said. “If we don’t go to Vermont Street, I don’t know where we will be going.” The city has hired a consultant to help the city find a more permanent site for a transfer and bus station. Preliminary recommendations on sites likely will be available by June. — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362.

Not choosing is worst option on Syria

EDITORIALS

Big success The volunteers who participated in Saturday’s Big Event deserve a special ‘thank you’ from the community.

K

ansas University is a defining asset for Lawrence and makes a mighty contribution to our community 365 days a year. Nonetheless, there’s something special about seeing 3,000 KU volunteers investing some sweat equity in the community that surrounds the university campus. That’s what happened on Saturday during the third annual Big Event, which organizes KU students, faculty and staff to perform community service projects at both public and private locations. After getting their work assignments, the volunteers scattered across Lawrence to about 400 sites to rake, trim, paint and perform many other duties. Among other jobs, they helped tidy up the stadium at Lawrence High School and plant new trees to replace those cleared by Westar Energy at the Hidden Valley Girl Scout Camp. Organizers say the event was created as a way for KU students and employees to say “thank you” to the community and has grown steadily from fewer than 500 volunteers the first year to about 2,000 the second and 3,000 this year. It takes a lot of coordination to match that many volunteers with work assignments across the city, but the increased numbers must indicate that results of the event are satisfying for both the volunteers and those they help. As noted above, KU is a year-round asset for Lawrence, bringing not only cultural events and notable speakers to the city but also thousands of interesting and accomplished students, faculty and staff members. They enhance our community in many ways. Last weekend, they rolled up their sleeves and got their hands dirty in an effort to say “thank you” to Lawrence. We’d like to return that sentiment with a special thank you to everyone who participated in the Big Event.

Will someone please explain the Obama administration’s policy on Syria? After watching two top State Department officials try to explain it during a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing Thursday, I am totally lost. And I’m not alone. Committee members on both sides of the aisle appeared equally confused. Robert Ford, the U.S. ambassador to Syria, repeated the administration’s long-running mantra: “Only a negotiated political settlement will provide a durable and sustainable” end to the conflict. Without such an accord, he said, “regime supporters, fearing death, will fight to the death.” Yet Ford couldn’t explain the administration’s strategy for getting a settlement, which would require the exit of Bashar al-Assad. The Syrian leader controls the skies and can bomb and Scud his opponents with impunity. “He believes he’s got the upper hand,” in the words of James Clapper, the U.S. director of national intelligence. “Unless we change the dynamic ... Assad will continue to believe he can hold on to power,” argued the committee chairman, Robert Menendez, D-N.J., his frustration showing. But the hearings provided few clues as to how U.S. officials plan to tip the scales.

Russia appeal not working For two years, the administration has been fruitlessly trying to persuade Russia’s Vladimir Putin to lean on his ally Assad; Elizabeth Jones, the acting assistant secretary of state for the Near East, said those efforts were ongoing. But when asked what would alter Moscow’s thinking, she replied: “It’s hard to know. We spend a considerable

Everyone recognizes that there are no good options in Syria. But some options are worse than others, and failing to choose guarantees the triumph of the worst ones.” amount of effort talking with our Russian colleagues, (but) we haven’t quite been able to persuade them that it’s in their fundamental interest to move now rather than wait for many more thousands to be killed.” Ouch! Clearly, the Russian avenue is useless unless Putin believes his ally is about to lose. Yet Ford and Jones reiterated the United States’ refusal to give “lethal” aid — that is, arms — to non-Islamist Syrian rebels, even as jihadi groups rake in guns and funds from rich Gulf Arabs. Non-jihadi rebels get sporadic aid from the Qatari and Saudi governments, but not heavy weapons to counter Assad’s missiles and planes. Of course, there are concerns that giving rebels shoulder-fired antiaircraft missiles would run the risk of letting them fall into jihadi hands. Yet Ford detailed the vetting of rebel commanders done by other government agencies (the CIA), even naming several reliable rebel officers. “We know a

lot more about the armed opposition than we did six months ago,” he said. “There are good people we can work with.” If so, why not trust them with antiaircraft weapons? After all, the only way to break the military stalemate in Syria is to deny the regime control of the skies. And it was galling to hear Ford talk about the recent U.S. decision to give “nonlethal” aid to some rebel groups — meaning rations, medicine, and body armor. Such aid, he said, would help them “pull recruits away from better-financed extremist organizations.”

U.S. aid insufficient That claim insults our intelligence. As Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., put it, opposition fighters aren’t likely to be impressed “by the fact they might get a flak jacket when they’re being pounded by Scud missiles and air power, or that we might give nonlethal aid while arms flow in from Iran and Russia to prop up Assad. “We’ve watched as more than 80,000 were massacred, and we’ve given them MREs (meals ready-to-eat) with an expiration date of June.” More to the point, nonlethal aid won’t tip the military balance or send Assad into exile. So, again, what’s the strategy to get to political talks? Ford is a courageous diplomat who seems to grasp the deeper problem. “There’s a real competition under way between extremists and moderates,” he said, “and we need to stand with the moderates.” But helping the moderates too little or too late only compounds the problem. It feeds Syrian conspiracy theories that the United

States wants Assad to remain in power. Even the U.S. approach to civilian rebels is confusing. The State Department just began to dispense aid directly to a new Syrian opposition council, which will channel it directly to civilian leaders in liberated areas of Syria. But the long debate that preceded this move fueled splits within the council and undermined the liberals within it. Nor has the White House decided whether to formally recognize the council as an alternative government. (That would require giving the new government arms.) So it’s hard to argue with Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., who said: “We really do not have a good idea where the president is headed on Syria policy. It feels to me we wake up and the events in Syria determine the next stopgap [measure] … to show we’re involved but not really that involved.”

Syria collapsing Meantime, Syria is collapsing into a failed state that contains dangerous weapons, along with potent alQaida and Iranian presences. More than a million Syrian refugees have poured into neighboring Lebanon, Jordan and Turkey, destabilizing the region. The longer the fighting goes on, the worse the situation will become, and the stronger the Islamists. Everyone recognizes that there are no good options in Syria. But some options are worse than others, and failing to choose guarantees the triumph of the worst ones. Last week’s testimony gave no hint that the administration is ready to make those hard choices. — Trudy Rubin is a columnist and editorial board member for the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Residents in southeast Lawrence were seeing an increase in development, as employees of industrial plants such as King Radio and Farmland Industries were showing a preferYEARS ence to live close to work. The planned East AGO Hills Business Park was also expected to acIN 1988 celerate residential development in the area. “I think it will be a very rapid growth area,” said developer Joe Langhofer, a resident of a southeast neighborhood. “It’s one of the only areas in the city where you can still build and sell houses under $65,000.”

From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for April 16, 1913: “Today was Engineers’ Day. And the feature of the day was the annual parade.... The YEARS floats were very good and the engineers, AGO togged out in their regulation soft shirts, khaIN 1913 ki trousers and boots added a touch of realism to the scene.... The two floats of the Civils portrayed the H. A. Rice Bridge Co. and the ‘Daddy’ Dalton Consulting Engineering Co. The Sanitary Engineers took a gentle fling at the Lawrence water in their float. A mimic reservoir of the Water Company was shown and some of the various animals that are sometimes said to inhabit it. The Sanitaries also showed some of the street cleaning apparatus of the city. The Mining Engineers had a very clever display, representing the miners in ‘49. ... The Electricals had a complete plant in operation. … The Chemicals displayed their laboratory as in times past, but the perfume which has characterized their float on previous occasions was missing this morning — much to the relief of the bystanders.... The second part of the Mechanicals display was one of the best parts of the parade. It consisted of a railway locomotive built around an automobile.” — Compiled by Sarah St. John

To the editor: Lawrence has one theater. One sad, old, uncomfortable, dirty theater. I went to see “Jurassic Park 3D” there last night, and several things jumped out at me. The façade of the building reflects the overall feeling of Hollywood Theater 21: run down, poorly maintained, and bizarrely mismanaged. Going to see a movie is a challenge. You never know what door you can enter, because they seem to randomly lock them, making getting inside a sad game of musical doors. Once you get your ticket, either from the ’90s era self-ticket kiosk or the subway conductor behind the glass, you enter the lobby. Usually dirty and staffed by unpleasant teenagers, you notice there is no advanced soda fountain where you have tons of drinks to choose from. No, you have to wait in lines. I mean, wait … in … lines. Once you get to the theater, you better be under 6 feet tall, or you’ll be cramped. Lawrence needs a new, nicer theater. The Hollywood 21 is for saps, I tell you. I hope the purchase by Regal Group means an upgrade, if not a complete rebuild, but the comment by a Regal employee that Southwind is “exceptional” is baffling and lowers my hope for change. Ben Lockwood, Lawrence

Idiotic bill To the editor: Senate Bill 163? Anyone heard of it? I doubt it, but it actually passed the Kansas Senate without citizen knowledge. It is an utterly foolish bill meant to permit health insurance policies to get around the state’s coverage of things like immunizations, diabetes care and other services and treatments provided by podiatrists, pharmacists and other providers. This bill obviously is an effort to ignore both state mandates and requirements of the federal Affordable Care Act to buy health policies through the mandated federal exchanges. People buying such policies would be duped and would have thrown their money away when

they purchased these worthless policies. As Kansas Insurance Commissioner Sandy Praeger said, “It’s a real lack of understanding of how health insurance works.” She, incidentally, was not asked to be part of the process in drafting this idiotic bill. This citizen deplores the incompetent GOP senators who govern us. This bill is still on the governor’s desk, begging to be signed. I would like to know the names of the senators who voted for this bill. Wouldn’t you? Richard Sengpiehl, Lawrence

Child care focus To the editor: The 2013 Week of the Young Child is April 14–20. This annual event focuses public attention on the needs of young children and their families and recognizes the early childhood programs and services that meet those needs. This year, Child Care Aware of Northeast & North Central Kansas will work with other community supporters to display 5,860 multi-colored flags, each about 20 inches high, on the corner of 27th and Iowa. Each flag will represent a child cared for in a child care program in Lawrence. Research has proven what happens in a child’s earliest years matters, and high-quality child care options are a terrific investment in our community, state and nation. Please take this opportunity to check out the display and visit our website, nenc. ks.childcareaware.org, for more information on how you can support high-quality early learning options for children in the community, as well as throughout Kansas and the nation! Reva Wywadis, executive director. Child Care Aware of Northeast & North Central Kansas, Lawrence

By John Hanna Associated Press

TOPEKA — Kansas’ largest electric utility asked state regulators Monday for permission to raise an additional $32 million more each year by raising rates for residential customers while reducing costs for large and medium-sized businesses. Westar Energy Inc. said its nearly 600,000 residential customers would see their rates rise by about 8 percent, which it said would amount to an increase of $7.50 or less for two-thirds of them. For about 150,000 residential customers, the increase would be $4 a month, the utility company said. Westar said its plan would reduce rates by 5 percent to 10 percent for some 5,500 businesses. The utility company said such businesses have seen their rates increase more quickly in recent years than similar businesses in other states, and Westar wants to make Kansas more competitive economically. Topeka-based Westar said that under the proposals it filed with the Kansas Corporation Commission, the effects of any rate increases would be softened by the utility’s trimming of $10 million in annual costs and creating a new fund to provide help to poor consumers having trouble paying their electric bills. The overall increase in Westar’s rates would be 1.7 percent, and the utility would use new revenues

“Electricity provides great value, and we are looking to the commission to allow us tools that help keep it affordable as costs rise,” Mark Ruelle, Westar’s president and chief executive officer, said in a statement. “First, we need to make sure rates are fair and reflect the cost of providing service to each type of customer.”

Boston scene turns â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;surrealâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Entrant No. 17700 in the 117th Boston Marathon, Tiffany Francis of Lawrence, was feeling good about exceeding her expectations by finishing in 3 hours, 35 minutes. She drank her fluids, received her medal and retrieved her baggage from the bus that in the morning had transported her and other runners to the starting area. From there, she set out for the pre-determined street corner to meet her daughter Carlin and her daughterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s friends on a beautiful Boston afternoon. They had been visiting for about five minutes when a sunny day took a sharp, dark turn. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We heard this explosion, and it was surreal,â&#x20AC;? Tiffany said Monday night by phone from her daughterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Boston apartment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone stopped for a second and thought maybe it was a celebration for the elite runners.

Carlin saw the reflection of rising smoke in the tinted windows of a high-rise building catty-corner from where they stood, and that was when, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We knew something not right was going on,â&#x20AC;? Tiffany said. The first explosion took place about 500 feet from where she stood with her daughter and friends, Tiffany said, the second about 250 feet (less than the length of a football field). She praised the job Boston police, firemen and race volunteers did in getting the streets blocked off. Public transportation shut down, and taxis were difficult to flag, so Tiffany Francis had a long walk ahead of her to her daughterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s apartment after running 26 miles, 385 yards. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was pretty horrible,â&#x20AC;?

Withey, Releford co-award winners By Gary Bedore gbedore@ljworld.com

Kansas University seniors Travis Releford and Jeff Withey were named co-winners of the Danny Manning/Mr. Jayhawk Award for contributions on and off the court at Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball banquet at the Holidome. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Travis is an absolute stud â&#x20AC;&#x201D; unselfish, an unbelievable competitor. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s our rock,â&#x20AC;? KU coach Bill Self said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jeff is KUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all-time leading shotblocker, which tells you he is

the best defender in the history of the school. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Over the course of their careers, those guys have graduated and done everything theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been asked to do and made sacrifices. I think you could make a case for a couple more, but I think it was pretty much a no-brainer that they deserved it,â&#x20AC;? Self added of the only award distributed at the banquet, attended by more than 600 fans. Withey, a 7-footer from San Diego, said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an honor, a cool award. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really nice I

get to share it with â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Trav.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; He definitely deserves it.â&#x20AC;? Releford, 6-6 from Kansas City, in his speech thanked his teammates saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;You made my last year a time to remember.â&#x20AC;?

Withey picks Wasserman: Withey, who is expected to be taken in the first round of the NBA Draft, has signed with agent Darren Matsubara of Wasserman Media Group. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s different. You see the business aspect of the game. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m trying to get ready for the

next level. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve started training,â&#x20AC;? said Withey, who would like to go from 225 pounds to about 240. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to be moving to L.A. soon to start working out with the agency. I definitely feel blessed right now.â&#x20AC;?

Sports security reviewed post-bombing The Associated Press

A few hours after the Boston Marathon bombings, and more than 1,000 miles away, a police officer with a German shepherd patrolled near an entrance to the baseball stadium where Miami hosted Washington on Monday evening â&#x20AC;&#x201D; an unusual sight at Marlins Park. Inside, on the field, two Marlins officials gave a security supervisor a briefing about the ballparkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s layout. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are taking additional precautions and have intensified our security efforts in and around the ballpark to ensure everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s safety,â&#x20AC;? Marlins spokesman P.J. Loyello said.

The postponement of Monday nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s NHL game between the Bruins and Ottawa Senators, and the cancellation of todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s NBA game between the Celtics and Indiana Pacers â&#x20AC;&#x201D; both events to be held in Boston â&#x20AC;&#x201D; were the most tangible reactions by sports officials to the explosions at the marathon finish line that killed at least three people and injured more than 140 others. A makeup date for BruinsSenators was not announced; no other events from top professional leagues around the country were immediately called off. Still, other effects of the explosions could be seen quickly, such as bomb-sniffing dogs sweep-

Baseball celebrates Robinson legacy MIAMI (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Lined up in front of their dugouts, all wearing No. 42 on Jackie Robinson Day, the Washington Nationals and Miami Marlins stood for a moment of silence to honor bombing victims at the Boston Marathon. What began as an annual celebration to salute the man who broke baseballâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s color barrier 66 years ago turned somber after a pair of explosions near the finish line in Boston â&#x20AC;&#x201D; about a mile from Fenway Park â&#x20AC;&#x201D; killed three people and injured more than 130 on Monday. Hours later, Major League Baseball went on with ceremonies for the fifth Jackie Robinson Day at stadiums all over the country and north of the border in Toronto. All the teams in action were asked to wear Robinsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s number, retired throughout baseball in 1997. Yankees closer Mariano Rivera is the only active player who still wears the number, and he has said he is retiring after this season. Teams that didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t play on Monday planned to pay tribute to Robinson today. Robinsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s debut with the Brooklyn Dodgers on April 15, 1947, is drawing special attention this year with the release of the film â&#x20AC;&#x153;42,â&#x20AC;? which went into wide release last weekend. Robinsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s widow, Rachel, along with the coupleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daughter, Sharon, and son, David, were introduced before the Dodgers played the Padres in Los Angeles. Harrison Ford bounced the ceremonial first pitch to Dodgers manager Don Mattingly. Ford plays ex-Brooklyn general manager Branch Rickey in â&#x20AC;&#x153;42.â&#x20AC;? Red Sox manager John Farrell said baseball â&#x20AC;&#x153;reflects society in so many ways, whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the color barriers being broken down. In our clubhouse youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got six or seven countries coming together. As a group of 25, you look to not only co-exist, but (recognize) the individuality of everyone in there. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Certainly, the Robinson family and certainly Jackie himself may be one of the most significant situations in our countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history,â&#x20AC;? Farrell said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;breaking down segregation to the point of inclusion and I think that happens in the game today.â&#x20AC;? In Miami, the ceremonial first pitch was thrown out by Norman Berman, the ballboy for the Brooklyn Dodgers the year Robinson was a rookie. The 84-year-old Berman lives in nearby West Palm Beach. He was the Dodgersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 19-year-old ballboy in 1947 when the team reached the World Series. Berman said Robinson befriended him, played catch with him and gave tips on how to make a double-play pivot. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was a wonderful person,â&#x20AC;? Berman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I learned something from him â&#x20AC;&#x201D; when you go through tough times, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to stay positive. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think most of the ballplayers who came after him would have been able to be the first black ballplayer, because they couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do what he did.â&#x20AC;?

Fans heading into the NBA game between the Washington Wizards and Brooklyn Nets in New York waited in long lines as arena security used wands to check people and thoroughly searched bags. A short video clip about what happened in Boston aired on the arenaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s video screen and a moment of silence was held. More toughened measures are expected as security is calibrated for upcoming major

KENYAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S RITA JEPTOO, AT LEFT, CROSSES THE FINISH LINE to win the womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s division of the Boston Marathon, Monday in Boston. Menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s champion Lelisa Desisa, of Ethiopia, finishes at right. Desisa was the 24th East African to win in the past 26 years, and Jeptoo was the 15th East African winner in the last 17 years on the womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s side.

Ethiopian man, Kenyan woman win Boston race BOSTON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Two bombs exploded at the Boston Marathon finish line Monday two hours after Lelisa Desisa and Rita Jeptoo crossed it to win the race. Three people were killed and at least a 100 were injured. The blasts shattered the euphoria of what had been a pleasantly uneventful 117th edition of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s oldest and most prestigious annual marathon. Runners still on the course were diverted to the Boston Common; race officials said 4,496 runners had crossed the checkpoint at more than 24 miles but did not make it to the finish line. A year after record-high temperatures sent unprecedented numbers of participants to the medical tent, temperatures in the high 40s greeted the field of 23,326 at the Hopkinton starting line. It climbed to 54 degrees by the time the winners reached Bostonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Copley Square. Desisa, of Ethiopia, won a three-way sprint down Boylston Street to finish in 2 hours, 10 minutes, 22 seconds and snap a string of three consecutive Kenyan victories. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Here we have a relative newcomer,â&#x20AC;? said Ethiopiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gebregziabher Gebremariam, who finished third In just his second race at 26.2 miles, Desisa finished 5 seconds ahead of Kenyaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Micah Kogo to earn $150,000 and the traditional olive wreath. American Jason Hartmann finished fourth for the second year in a row. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Ethiopians run very good tactical races,â&#x20AC;? defending champion Wesley Korir, a Kenyan citizen and U.S. resident, said after finishing fifth. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One thing I always say is, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Whenever you see more than five Ethiopians in a race, you ought to be very careful.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; As Kenyans, we ought to go back to the drawing board and see if we can get our teamwork back.â&#x20AC;? Jeptoo, 32, averted the Keynan shutout by winning the womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s race for the second time. Jeptoo, who also won in 2006, finished in 2:26:25 for her first victory in a major race since taking two years off after having a baby. After a series of close finishes in the womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s race â&#x20AC;&#x201D; five consecutive years with 3 seconds or less separating the top two â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Jeptoo had a relatively comfortable 33-second margin over Meseret Hailu of Ethiopia. Defending champion Sharon Cherop of Kenya was another 3 seconds back. Shalane Flanagan, of nearby Marblehead, was fourth in the womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s division in her attempt to earn the first American victory in Boston since 1985. (Two-time winner Joan Benoit Samuelson, running on the 30th anniversary of her 1983 victory, finished in 2:50:29 to set a world record for her age group.) Kara Goucher, of Portland, Ore., was sixth for her third top 10 finish in Boston as many tries. The last American woman to win here was Lisa Larsen-Weidenbach in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;85; Greg Meyer was the last U.S. man to win, in 1983.

WOMENâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S BASKETBALL

Griner top pick in WNBA draft BRISTOL, CONN. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Phoenix Mercury took Brittney Griner with the top pick in the WNBA Draft Monday night. The two-time AP Player of the Year finished as the second all-time scorer in womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s NCAA history, with 3,283 points. She is the top shotblocker ever, shattering both the menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s college marks with 748. She also had a record 18 dunks â&#x20AC;&#x201D; including 11 this season. Griner will join a very talented Mercury squad that was plagued by injuries most of last season. Star Diana Taurasi played in only eight games, and Penny Taylor missed the entire Griner year while recovering from an ACL injury. Candice Dupree also missed 21 games because of a knee injury. Like Phoenix, Chicago added a budding star in Elena Delle Donne with the No. 2 pick to an already stacked roster that just missed making the playoffs last season. The 6-foot-5 forward, who can play multiple positions, was second in the nation in scoring (26.0) and averaged 8.5 rebounds. Tulsa took Notre Dame guard Skylar Diggins with the third pick. Diggins averaged 17.1 points, 6.1 assists and 3.1 steals while helping the Irish reach the Final Four the past three seasons.

The 6-foot-10 freshman is projected to be a lottery pick despite sustaining his season-ending knee injury on Feb. 12. He led the nation with 4.4 blocks per game, and averaged 10.5 points and 9.5 rebounds. Noel also had 50 steals for Kentucky (21-12), earning Southeastern Conference defensive player of the year honors, along with first team all-conference and freshman team selections.

Porter announced his decision at a news conference on campus Monday with Hoyas coach John Thompson III. Porter was the Big East player of the year and finished second in the voting behind Michiganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Trey Burke for the Associated Press player of the year award.

CJ Stuever added a home run, three RBIs and a stolen base. “We were very aggressive at the plate and on the base paths, and I thought we were effective at striking first,” LHS coach Brad Stoll said. “Brandon kept pumping strikes and threw a lot of ground balls. ...

find out where the runners they were supporting were to make sure they were OK. I’m so blessed I was able to be with my daughter.” They shared a 21⁄2-hour walk that started about an hour after Tiffany’s 31⁄2hour run had ended. “It was only about six miles, but they were blocking off certain parts of the city, so it took longer,” she said. “We were on a subway for one stop.” But that closed, and she said she didn’t want to be a part of a mad rush of bodies to get onto another one. They walked, growing closer to their destination and each other with each step. Back home in Lawrence, Tiffany’s husband, Kansas University soccer coach Mark Francis, experienced a level of stress far deeper than when watching one of his players blast a shot over a net guarded by an out-of-position goalkeeper in an important match. Two bombs in Boston that caused a confirmed three deaths and injured an estimated 100 others and ensuing jammed phone lines sent the soccer coach’s anxiety level soaring. Francis was in his office when he received a text from a friend inquiring, “Is Tiffany OK?” When the coach wondered the reason for the question, he was told to “turn on CNN.” “So I turned on CNN, and I was like, ‘Holy (cow)!’” he said. For the next hour-andchange, his efforts to reach Tiffany and Carlin failed. “It was scary,” KU’s 14th-year soccer coach said after putting his team through a chilly afternoon practice. Thanks to a cell-phone app his daughter had pointed him toward, Francis, after entering Tiffany’s bib number, had received updates of her pace and ultimately her finishing time. After the app informed him his wife had finished the race, Francis called his daughter, and they both shared how psyched they were at Tiffany’s strong performance. Carlin told her father she was headed to the finish line to find her mother and would call after they met. “Then I never heard back from her,” Francis said. Roughly an hour after the explosions, Tiffany was able to send a text message informing that they were OK and together. I asked Tiffany if she had taken a nap. “No way,” she said. “I’m just so blessed and lucky to be here with my daughter.” Grateful for life and having family to enrich it so made a woman who should have been exhausted too exhilarated to sleep.

basketball player Kevin Young in a Rubik’s Cube contest. Donley indicated he did not think extra security forces would be hired to work at the Kansas Relays — which take place Wednesday through Saturday with most of the events in Memorial Stadium — in

light of Monday’s bombings that resulted in three confirmed deaths at the Boston Marathon. “Obviously it just makes you more aware that anything can happen at any time,” Donley said. “Nothing is sacred anymore. The Boston Marathon is most open event you can find.”

Since the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, spectators entering Memorial Stadium for the event have had their backpacks, etc. searched. “We’ve been doing that for quite a while and maybe even more so now,” Donley said. “I feel safe in Lawrence. I think Lawrence is a safe city.”

FREE STATE SENIOR DANE MCCULLOUGH DELIVERS A PITCH during the Firebirds’ 4-0 victory over Leavenworth on Monday at FSHS.

Firebirds roll, 4-0 ————

McCullough, defense solid By Benton Smith basmith@ljworld.com

Leavenworth High’s baseball team had its chances to manufacture a run or two Monday at Free State, but senior FSHS pitcher Dane McCullough and the Firebirds defense terminated any such possibility in a 4-0 Free State victory. The Pioneers put nine runners on base and stranded six in a two-hit, three-walk, seven-strikeout, complete-game victory for McCullough. The right-handed starter kept his team undefeated after getting out of the first, second and third innings with a runner in scoring position. “He’s composed,” FSHS coach Mike Hill said of McCullough (3-0). “He had to work around some freebies — a couple errors, a couple walks — and found a way to get it done.” McCullough, who only allowed hits to Pioneers leadoff man Eli Keppler, didn’t walk anyone after the second inning. When Leavenworth put someone on via hit, error, fielder’s choice or getting hit by a pitch in the final five innings, the pitcher said Free State (9-0) created a solution. “The defense was just amazing behind me,” Mc-

Cullough said. “We had a couple of errors that didn’t come back to bite us, and I’m thankful because some people made some good plays out there behind me and made my job easier.” McCullough didn’t crumble under pressure. He struck out a Pioneers batter — with at least one runner on base — to end the second, third and fifth innings. “I love those kinds of situations,” he said. “Especially with two outs, when I know just a strikeout will end it.” Leavenworth had a runner on first and one out in the top of the sixth when James Gladieux hit the ball sharply up the middle to FSHS second baseman Cooper Karlin. Hill was pleased to see Karlin step on second and fire to first baseman Jacob Caldwell for the inning-ending double play. “It was a terrific play,” the coach said. “Cooper’s just a sophomore, and he’s become such a good player defensively.” The double play assured FSHS would face the bottom of Leavenworth’s order in the seventh, and McCullough retired the Pioneers in order to end the game. The Firebirds got all the offense they needed in a three-run fourth. Caldwell

led off with a single. Lee McMahon reached on a ground ball up the middle after the Pioneers picked up a force out at second. Then Sam Hearnen managed an infield single to put two runners on for Cameron Pope, who tripled to the right-field gap for a 2-0 Free State lead. Pope slid in to beat a throw home and make it 3-0 on Anthony Meile’s grounder to second base. “When we have a big inning,” Pope said, “we just stay on top and don’t usually let them back.” That was the case against Leavenworth, but FSHS added another run in the fifth, with two outs. Pope hit a dribbler down the first-base line and avoided a potential tag by LHS pitcher Judson Cole, allowing courtesy runner John Fellers to score from third. “It was pretty lucky,” Pope said, wearing a grin. “I kind of half-swung, and it worked out in our favor. ... Basically, that’s how it’s been going this season.” Free State will face Topeka Hayden at 7:15 p.m. Thursday at Hoglund Ballpark in the River City Festival.

Goodrich goes in WNBA Draft J-W Staff Reports

Angel Goodrich, the all-time assist leader in Kansas University women’s basketball history, became the sixth KU player to be chosen in the WNBA Draft, when the senior point guard was tabbed as the 29th pick overall by the Tulsa Shock in the third round of the WNBA Draft on Monday night. Goodrich is from Tahlequah, Okla. Goodrich joins Notre Dame’s Skylar Diggins as the two Tulsa draft picks this season. The two point guards faced each other in the regional semifinal on March 31 in Norfolk, Va. Goodrich “It was neat to see my name pop up,” Goodrich said. “There was a lot of waiting and some anxiety, but as soon as (my name) came up my heart just started pounding. It’s awesome that I will be so close to home. This is such a blessing, because it’s so close. It’s right there. There will be a lot of people supporting me and cheering me on. This is really a dream come true.” Goodrich finished her career with 1,262 points

and 771 assists, the thirdhighest total in the Big 12 Conference history. The 5-foot-4 guard ranked second in the conference in both assists and steals. She averaged 7.2 assists per game, while posting 2.8 steals per contest. Goodrich was second on the Jayhawks’ squad with 14.1 points per game and led the team with 58 threepoint field goals. Goodrich became the first Jayhawk selected in the WNBA Draft since the Connecticut Sun selected Danielle McCray with the seventh pick of the 2010 draft. Other Kansas players drafted into the WNBA include Tamecka Dixon (Los Angeles Sparks, 14th, 1997), Lynn Pride (Portland Fire, seventh, 2000), Charisse Sampson (Seattle Storm, 25th, 2000) and Jaclyn Johnson (Orlando Miracle, 2001). Lynette Woodard (Cleveland Rockers, Detroit Shock), Angela Aycock (Seattle Storm, Minnesota Lynx, Houston Comets) and Nakia Sanford (Washington Mystics, Phoenix Mercury, Seattle Storm) have suited up in the WNBA despite not being drafted. Sanford just signed with the Storm in February, while McCray is still with the Sun but will miss the 2013 season after suffering an Achilles tendon tear a couple of weeks ago.

KU’s Piché gets Big 12 honor For the second week in a row, Kansas University junior baseball relief pitcher Jordan Piché has been

named the Big 12 Conference’s Newcomer of the Week. Piché recorded a win and a save in KU’s first series victory over Texas since 2009 this past weekend. Piché, a 6-foot-1 righthanded pitcher from Greeley, Colo., did not allow a run in six innings, which

spanned two relief appearances. The 6-foot-1 righty currently leads the Big 12 with a 0.49 ERA in 36 2/3 innings and is tied for the conference lead with seven saves. Piché is 5-1 with 25 strikeouts and three walks in 17 relief appearances.

SCOREBOARD River City Baseball Festival

Roundup Clean-shaven Dirk Nowitzki had 26 points and Vince Carter 22 for the Mavs, who had finally reached .500 for the first time since Dec. 12 with a win at New Orleans on Sunday night. They had vowed not to shave until reaching .500 — though it lasted only one night.

Thunder 104, Kings 95 OKLAHOMA CITY — Kevin Durant scored 29 points, Russell Westbrook had 21 before getting ejected in the final three minutes, and Oklahoma City clinched the top seed in the Western Conference playoffs by beating Sacramento. Tyreke Evans, the Kings’ second-leading scorer, did not return after grabbing at his troublesome left knee following a drive to the basket late in the first quarter. Durant hit a three-pointer, and Westbrook set up Serge Ibaka for a two-handed slam during a string of 11 straight Thunder points midway through the third quarter that stretched the lead to 75-51. Isaiah Thomas led the Kings with 16 points, Travis Outlaw scored 15, and Cole Aldrich had a double-double for the second straight game by tying his career best with 12 points and setting a career high with 13 rebounds.

Heat 96, Cavaliers 95 CLEVELAND — LeBron James watched from the bench in street clothes as Norris Cole stripped Kyrie Irving of the ball with 2.2 seconds left to give Miami, resting most of its top players for the playoffs, a win over Cleveland. Cole finished with 18 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists. But it was his only steal on Cleveland’s final possession that sealed it. James was disappointed not to play in another homecoming game against his former team, but he appreciated coach Erik Spoelstra’s desire to get the NBA champions as healthy and refreshed as possible heading into the postseason. Chris Bosh and Mario Chalmers joined James on the bench while Dwyane Wade, Shane Battier and Udonis Haslem stayed back in Miami with minor injuries.

Nuggets 112, Bucks 111 MILWAUKEE — Ty Lawson scored 26 points, including a jumper in the lane with 9.3 seconds left, and Denver clinched home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs with a win. Wilson Chandler added 21 points for the Nuggets, who can secure the No. 3 seed in the West with one more victory or two losses by the L.A. Clippers. Milwaukee lost despite Monta Ellis scoring 38 points, one shy of his season high.

The lefthander walked two and struck out three. Right-hander Gavin Floyd (0-3) remained winless as the slumping White Sox lost for the sixth time in seven games. Chicago

Twins 8, Angels 2 MINNEAPOLIS — Joe Mauer had a home run among his four hits and drove in three runs for the Twins in a victory over the Angels on a cold, windy night that helped send several fly balls to the deepest parts of Target Field. Kevin Correia (1-1) earned his first American League win after finishing seven innings for the third time in as many starts with the Twins, getting two double-play grounders to help him limit the Angels to solo home runs by Peter Bourjos and former Twins utility infielder Brendan Harris. Angels starter Joe Blanton (0-3) was battered again for nine hits, one walk and four runs in 42⁄3 innings. Mauer doubled and scored in the first and led off the fifth inning with a homer to left-center. Trevor Plouffe also

National League Reds 4, Phillies 2 CINCINNATI — Brandon Phillips drove in a pair of runs with a bases-loaded single in the eighth inning, and Cincinnati ended its five-game losing streak. Cincinnati’s five-game slide matched its longest slump from last season, when it won the NL Central. The Reds still didn’t hit much, but left-hander Cliff Lee helped them by letting in a run on a wild pitch in the seventh. Todd Frazier followed with a sacrifice fly for a 2-0 lead. Bronson Arroyo (21) gave up pinch-hitter Chase Utley’s two-run homer in the eighth, but Cincinnati rallied against the Philadelphia bullpen. The Reds loaded the bases against Jeremy Horst (01), and Phillips singled off Mike Adams to break the tie. Philadelphia

Nationals 10, Marlins 3 MIAMI — Jordan Zimmermann pitched a sixhitter for his third victory of the season, and Washington bounced back from a humbling weekend to beat Miami. Ryan Zimmerman hit his first home run and had four RBIs to lead a 16-hit outburst. Zimmermann (30) struck out six, walked one and threw 102 pitches in his second career complete game. The Nationals were outscored 18-5 while being swept in a three-game series at home against Atlanta. They took out any lingering frustration on the Marlins (2-11), who came into the game tied for the worst record in the majors.

Washington

Rockies-Mets ppd DENVER — The scheduled game between the Rockies and Mets on Monday night has been postponed by a heavy spring snowstorm. The teams will play a split-doubleheader today. The first game is scheduled to begin at 12:10 p.m. The nightcap is set to start at 5:40 p.m., as previously scheduled. Weather forecasts call for additional snow today. It was the Mets’ second straight postponement. Wintry conditions in Minneapolis on Sunday forced the game against the Twins to be called off. It was rescheduled for August 19.

46 Oscar winner Martin

Dear Annie: I grew up in an extremely dysfunctional family. I have an older sibling who has hated the rest of us for the past 45 years. Family gatherings are extremely uncomfortable events. Inappropriate barbs lead to physical fights, young children cry while the adults pretend nothing is amiss, family members spy on one another, there is lots of back-stabbing, and some relatives are ignored while others are fawned over. My mother allows her adult children to treat one another like animals and refuses to get involved in the chaos. I am tired of this and will no longer let my children witness these destructive behaviors. Please let other parents know they should work to make their home a welcoming and loving environment. Is there anything I can do to counteract the hostility at these gatherings? — Too Old

Annie’s Mailbox

Marcy Sugar and Kathy Mitchell anniesmailbox@comcast.net

for Hate Dear Too Old: You cannot force your parents and siblings to behave in a civilized manner. The pattern in your family seems fairly well set, and no one else has much interest in changing it. You are smart to realize that your choice is to stay or leave. Calmly explain to your family why you are walking out (or not attending), and make no apologies. We commend you for recognizing this dysfunction and not transmitting it to your children. But

Cable’s TBS still struggles to stay fresh In the years since the cable channel TBS rebranded itself as a comedy outfit, we’ve seen some great innovations in comedy. But not on TBS. While shows like “Louie” and “Modern Family” have brought some discerning viewers back to TV comedies, TBS has played it relatively straight, airing fairly old-school sitcoms including “The Bill Engvall Show” “My Boys,” “Men at Work” and “Tyler Perry’s House of Payne.” Tonight, TBS dials it back decades with the newest variation on “Candid Camera.” “Who Gets the Last Laugh?” (9 p.m.) asks three professional comedians to devise hidden camera pranks to scare and surprise unsuspecting strangers. At the end, a studio audience, aided by host Donald Faison (“Scrubs”), will decide the funniest of the three and award $10,000 to that comic’s favorite charity. How old is this idea? “Candid Camera” debuted — on radio — in 1947. Its cable knockoffs aren’t exactly young, either. “Punk’d” debuted on MTV in 2003. Shannen Doherty first hosted “Scare Tactics” on the old Sci-Fi Channel a decade ago as well. TBS would be better served if it developed original sitcoms for some of “Last Laugh’s” comedian participants, including Andy Dick, Tom Green, Cheri Oteri and Alan Thicke. With the possible exception of Conan O’Brien, TBS continues to search for a comedic identity.

“In Performance at the White House” (7 p.m., PBS) celebrates the Memphis Soul sound of the 1960s and ‘70s, popularized on the Stax record label, home to Otis Redding, Sam & Dave, Booker T. and the MGs and other influential acts.

Tonight’s other highlights

The battle round continues on “The Voice” (7 p.m., NBC).

The remaining chefs must prepare six Chinese dishes on “Hell’s Kitchen” (7 p.m., Fox).

High hopes for a new season on “Deadliest Catch” (8 p.m., Discovery).

A priest’s murder may be linked to an earlier crime on “Golden Boy” (9 p.m., CBS).

A much-loathed mutual fund manager vanishes on “Body of Proof” (9 p.m., ABC).

“Real Sports With Bryant Gumbel” (9 p.m., HBO) looks at the role of soccer fans in Egypt’s revolution. Copyright 2013 United Feature Syndicate, distributed by Universal Uclick.

BIRTHDAYS Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI is 86. Singer Bobby Vinton is 78. Basketball Hall-of-Famer Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is 66. Ann Romney is 64. Actress Ellen Barkin is 59. Actor-comedian Martin Lawrence is 48. Actor Jon Cryer is 48. Actor Peter Billingsley is 42. Actor Lukas Haas is 37.

please consider letting the children see some of the relatives one-on-one, under your supervision. Kids are extremely tolerant of aberrant behavior in family members and can understand “this is how Grandma is” without emulating her. Dear Annie: “Michael” and I are a young gay couple pondering marriage. Gay marriage is not performed in our state, and we realize it would not be recognized here. It’s the principle of the thing. A courthouse venue seems the most feasible, and I am wondering whom to invite. Michael’s parents and siblings would most certainly be there, but I don’t know what to do about my side. I have no siblings, and my parents are divorced. Mom is fully supportive, but my father doesn’t know I’m gay. I would prefer not telling him in order to avoid a conflict. My father would prob-

JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS

For Tuesday, April 16: This year you can swing from being too rigid or restrained to suddenly becoming a “wild thing.” Others often might react strangely, as your behavior could catch them off-guard — they never know what to expect! If you are single, your moodiness sometimes works against you. If you are attached, be kind to your sweetie, as he or she might need some indulgence. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult Aries (March 21-April 19)  Listen to news with an open mind. You could be surprised at what needs to be done in order to complete the final product. Tonight: Head home. Taurus (April 20-May 20)  Speak your mind, and know full well that it could trigger some less-than-desirable reactions and/or responses. A partner might pull back rather than talk about what is bothering him or her. Tonight: Touch base with a neighbor. Gemini (May 21-June 20)  Be willing to go a little overboard and indulge someone you care about. A sudden change involving a meeting or a friend initially could surprise you. Tonight: Relax. Cancer (June 21-July 22)  You beam in any situation — even if there is a disruption. The unexpected is likely to affect your work, an older relative or a commitment. Tonight: Go for what you want. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)  Sometimes the less said, the better. In the future, you might want to keep more information to yourself. Tonight: Not to be found.

ably never find out that Michael and I are married if I don’t tell him myself. But if he did learn about it, he’d be upset. Then again, he’d also be upset to learn that I’m getting married. Should I tell him? Also, because my guest list is limited, should I invite best friends? — A Ring on It Dear Ring: We think you should tell your father, not only because keeping secrets can erode relationships, but also because you should not be hiding who you are. If you are mature enough to marry, it’s time to handle the fallout from your father. As for your guest list, invite those people you want to have as witnesses to your union, provided you can afford to do so. — Send questions to anniesmailbox@comcast.net, or Annie’s Mailbox, P.O. Box 118190 Chicago, IL 60611.

jacquelinebigar.com

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)  Put your ear to the ground, and listen to the inner workings of a situation. Your perspective will transform as a result. Tonight: Hang out where there are crowds. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  You know what you want, and you know what you expect. Stay level, as many responsibilities seem to drop on you. Tonight: In the limelight. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  You need to follow someone’s lead, even if you would prefer not to. You might be quietly or overtly cynical, but make an effort to follow through as this person might want. Tonight: Refuse to get into a power struggle. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)  You might want to reconsider a suggestion involving a loved one. A child could cause a problem, depending on how rigid you are right now. Tonight: Make time for a special person. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)  You need to honor a change within your immediate circle. People seem to want different things. Tonight: Go with a pal’s suggestion. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  Focus on getting the job done. You could be distracted by calls, an unexpected development and/or a possible change of plans. Tonight: Visit with a co-worker or a friend. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)  Allow your creativity to flow. Sometimes you take yourself far too seriously. Tonight: Add more spice to your life. — The astrological forecast should be read for entertainment only.
