Santa’s rescue from Weaver’s, downtown lighting ceremony kick off holiday season By Aaron Couch

It was supposed to be a routine publicity stop for Santa Claus. He’d come to town, see our city’s annual lighting ceremony and ask the local children what they’d like for Christmas. But Santa ran into a little trouble. First, he got word he didn’t have the proper tags to drive a reindeer-powered vehicle in Kansas. Then his reindeer got hungry and stranded him on top of Weaver’s, 901 Mass. According to the lighting ceremony’s emcee, the reindeer were enjoying the fine restaurants below. Luckily for Santa, it wasn’t long before members of Lawrence-Douglas County Fire Medical came down Massachusetts Street, truck blaring. The firefighters brought out their ladder and returned Santa to the ground. The crowd went wild. Children and members of the media rushed Santa, wanting pic-

tures or to just get a glimpse of the man. “The paparazzi, they follow Santa everywhere,” the event’s emcee told the crowd. “Those pictures of Santa at the beach …” he trailed off before he said too much. It was, after all, a family-friendly event. After about 15 minutes, Santa made his way to the stage in front of US Bank, 900 Mass.,

and dozens of children lined up to sit on Santa’s lap. “I asked him for an iPod Touch,” one boy told his mother, touching his eyelid to illustrate the point. Before Santa showed up, carolers sang, and City Commissioner Mike Amyx took time to praise the work of the Salvation Army. “We hear the Salvation Army bells. It’s a sound of the season,” Amyx said. He read a proclamation from Lawrence Mayor Aron Cromwell declaring the day Salvation Army Christmas

Kettle Kickoff Day. Amyx said he’d been coming to the corner of Ninth and Massachusetts his whole life to see the lights come on. “This is one of the most special places out of all of the United States,” Amyx told the crowd. “Thank you all for coming.” As for Santa, he wasn’t available for comment. He had his hands full.

After listening to principals, teachers and site council members, Superintendent Rick Doll has compiled a list of priorities for budget-challenged programs, services and personnel that should be part of basic elementary education in the Lawrence school district. Topping the list: !"Full-day kindergarten in all schools. !"Full-time principals. !"Small class sizes. !" Full-time nursing, counseling and mental health services. !"Reading and math specialists. !"Before- and after-school programs. “Obviously, these take dollars,” Doll said. Where to find such dollars continues to be a focus for the district, as the Lawrence school board awaits direction from two sources: budget restrictions from Doll the upcoming session of the Kansas Legislature and recommendations from a volunteer advisory group assigned to develop a plan for closing either two or three elementaries through consolidation within the next two years. Members of the Central and East Lawrence Elementary School Consolidation Working Group have five more meetings scheduled before their end-of-January deadline. The district continues to face declining revenues. The state has cut per-pupil payments to districts in each of the past four years — with the current level of $3,780 being the lowest since Please see SCHOOLS, page 2A !

Bert Nash files plans to create ‘wellness campus’ By Chad Lawhorn clawhorn@ljworld.com

Local agencies mixed on health care reorganization By Christine Metz cmetz@ljworld.com

For the past few weeks, health organizations have been absorbing the details from Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback’s proposal to reorganize how the state handles Medicaid. As those health providers get further into the plan’s details, reactions are mixed. On Nov. 8, Brownback announced a new system called KanCare, which is designed to save the state hundreds of mil-

lions of dollars in health care costs. The three major changes in the plan include: !" The state would contract with three health insurance companies to provide Medicaid services. !" All Medicare clients would receive managed care. !"Responsibilities for parts of Medicaid will shift among three state agencies.

In his overview of the reforms, Lawrence Memorial Hospital’s chief financial officer, Simon Scholtz, recently told the hospital board that “providers have a lot more responsibility than they ever had before.” More reporting and adherence to quality measures would be required. And the plan offers incentives for quality performance, such as reduced emergency room visits. Another major change would be that each patient would have a care manager, who would help

Pair of nesting eagles return to Wichita WICHITA — Two nesting bald eagles have taken up residence near a Wichita shopping center for the third straight year, and fans hope the pair will finally produce offspring. The Wichita Eagle reports the male eagle was first spotted Nov. 11 on an island in one of the lakes that give the Twin Lakes shopping center its name. The female was spotted five days later, and the two got to work building a nest. Pam Hanson watches the eagles closely from her nearby workplace. She says the female seems calmer this year — raising hope that this is the year the pair will mate. Retired Boeing military engineer Bob Herington has been photographing the eagles often. Herington says he catches them looking back at him when he views them through his lens.

is a baseball field speciallydesigned for individuals with disabilities. The property already includes a pond and a cabin, and plans envision a network of trails to be built on the property. The concept has come about after Bert Nash leaders had discussions with retired real estate executive John McGrew, who is spearheading an effort to get youth to spend more time outdoors. McGrew and his Outside for a Better Inside Group previously had sought to build a wellness campus on vacant school district property near Kansas Highway 10 and Noria Road in eastern Lawrence. But school board members ultimately balked at that plan. Now, McGrew says this site may be an even better location to provide outdoor wellness activities — everything from hiking, to fishing to birdwatching — because of its proximity to Lawrence Memorial Hospital. “We’re hoping for a collaboration from various stakeholders who want to prevent disease and not just treat it,” McGrew said. “It seem like a natural fit for not only Bert Nash, but also the hospital to use for outdoor therapy or to provide a place for their employees to get out and walk around.”

Funding uncertain But a timeline for when the project could begin is unknown. Funding to develop the property hasn’t been secured, Johnson said. He said

2000 — and more reductions are feared to be on the way. “It hasn’t been good the last several years,” said Lois Orth-Lopes, a teacher at Cordley School, past president of the Lawrence Education Association and current member of the working group. “We’re making things work, but our class sizes are growing. Our services and other support people are going down. It gets tighter and tighter every year.” School board members who formed the working group — as recommended by another advisory group, the Lawrence Elementary School Facility Vision Task Force — did so with the idea that saving money by reducing the number of smaller schools in the district could free up additional revenues

smoking cessation and weight-loss programs are also a key part of the reforms. “It’s very much a healthorientated approach rather than sick care,” Scholtz said. David Johnson, CEO of Bert Nash Community Mental Health Center, said the reforms appear to be good for his organization, which works with about 1,000 Medicaid patients. Community mental health groups had reached out to the governor before the reforms were announced. “It’s pretty clear they listened,” Johnson said. Under the new system, organizations like Bert Nash could become health homes, which would work with a team of health care providers to coordinate care, for those with serious and persistent emotional disturbances. It also allows them to continue

— David Johnson, Bert Nash’s chief executive officer it likely would take $6 million to $8 million to fully develop the site as envisioned in the concept plan. “I would say the actual development of the property is still a couple of years away,” Johnson said. The project comes at a time when Bert Nash has lost about $1.5 million worth of funding over the last four years. The nonprofit organization since this spring also has cut about 12 full- and part-time positions through attrition. Johnson has said the organization is projecting to operate at a $200,000 loss this year and a $90,000 deficit for 2012. Bert Nash is planning to use the earnings from a $1 million memorial fund — the proceeds of which came from an executive life insurance policy on its former CEO, Sandra Shaw — to cover the payments on the new property. Johnson said Bert Nash leaders believe that the current economic struggles shouldn’t stop the organization from continuing to plan for the future. “You can cover your head and let it beat you up, or you can invest in the future,” Johnson said. “It is our plan that we will continue to meet our mission in the community.”

for essential services for all students. Enter the priority list. Doll has gathered recommendations for “essential services” from principals at all 14 schools. The principals had consulted with teachers and members of site councils at their school, to see what programs would be considered most effective in “closing achievement gaps” between different sets of students and improving “achievement for all,” Doll said. While such services should be universal in the district’s elementary schools, Doll said, budgetary and operational challenges have held some back. Broken Arrow and Wakarusa Valley schools shared a principal last year, for example. Some schools don’t have full-time nursing services, nor full-time professionals dealing in counseling and mental health. Reading

rehabilitation services for those with serious mental illnesses. “No reason why a new system has to mean any further reduction in service. And this just doesn’t do that,” he said. “In some ways it could help.” Some health care providers are still muddling through the details. Jon Stewart, CEO of Heartland Community Health Center, is one of them. Right now Medicaid patients are just a small percentage of the population the safety net clinic serves. But in the next few years that is likely to change as federal regulations go into place increasing the number of people who qualify for Medicaid. Part of the difficulty, Stewart said, is gauging how the two sets of reforms will integrate with each other. “I think it is too early to tell if it is good or bad,” he said. — Reporter Christine Metz can be reached at 832-6352.

L AWRENCE J OURNAL -W ORLD Johnson also said he expects the expansion of the Medicaid program in 2014 — part of federal health care reform — will provide a boost to the organization. He said Bert Nash already treats many of the people who may become newly eligible under the Medicaid expansion, but the organization does so for free. “The Medicaid expansion in 2014 will mean that a lot of the people we are providing services for free will have resources,” Johnson said. “It should make a difference in being able to maintain our mission.” Johnson said he envisions any new Bert Nash offices built on the site would be in addition to the space the organization currently occupies in the Community Health Building at 200 Maine.

Rezoning Planning commissioners and city commissioners ultimately will have to approve the rezoning and a specific development plan before the project can move forward. The Planning Commission is scheduled to hear the rezoning request at its January meeting. As for the VFW operations, the club is still in operation at the location. Bert Nash has not yet closed on the property purchase — it is contingent upon the rezoning. Johnson said the VFW is looking for a new home, but he said Bert Nash has not given the club any deadline to vacate the premises. “We’re in no hurry for them to leave,” Johnson said. — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362.

and math specialist positions have been cut. Four schools — Deerfield, Langston Hughes, Sunset Hill and Quail Run — still lack full-day kindergarten, a program financed elsewhere using revenues set aside for providing programs and services targeted for students considered “at risk,” a standing based on economic status. For this academic year, the district added full-day kindergarten at two schools — Broken Arrow and Sunflower — using some of the money saved by closing Wakarusa Valley School at the end of the 2010-11 school year. The priorities list indicates fundamental needs for all schools, Doll said. That’s regardless of a building’s size, enrollment or students’ economic standing. — Schools reporter Mark Fagan can be reached at 832-7188. Follow him at Twitter.com/MarkFaganLJW.

Luke Gates, 21, left Cairo early this morning on a flight to Frankfurt, Germany. An Egyptian court ordered the release of Gates, along with Derrik Sweeney and Gregory Porter, both 19, on Thursday. All were studying at the American University in Cairo. The three were arrested on the roof of a university building near Cairo’s iconic Tahrir Square on Sunday. Officials accused them of throwing firebombs at security forces fighting with protesters. The other two are expected to leave on separate flights later this morning, the airport official said.

Many retailers get jump on Black Friday by opening Thursday

Standard & Poor’s downgraded Belgium’s financial standing Friday, citing the country’s government stalemate and a looming European recession. Spurred on by the ratings agency’s cut, six leading parties hurriedly resumed talks to agree on a 2012 budget to contain Belgium’s high debt and deficit, two more reasons why the country has come under increasing pressure from financial markets this week. In a sign that financial contagion is spreading across Europe, the agency cut Belgium’s credit rating from AA+ to AA, a move coming two days after Germany fared surprisingly poorly at a bond auction. Belgium has been without a permanent government for 530 days, as a series of negotiators has struggled without success to bridge the country’s divide between its French and Dutch speakers. “In our opinion, protracted political uncertainty remains a risk to its creditworthiness,” the ratings agency said. 3 | WASHINGTON, D.C.

Pentagon visit ahead for dance champ Defense Secretary Leon Panetta has invited soldier-turned-actor J.R. Martinez, winner of this season’s “Dancing with the Stars” competition, to meet him at the Pentagon. During a 10-minute telephone call Friday, Panetta told the dance champion he demonstrated the strength and resilience of wounded veterans, Pentagon spokesman Capt. John Kirby said. Martinez credited his military training for his performance on the ABC show, Kirby said. Martinez and professional partner Karina Smirnoff bested fellow finalists Rob Kardashian and Ricki Lake in the finale broadcast Tuesday. Martinez, 28, was severely burned over more than 40 percent of his body when the Humvee he was driving for the U.S. Army in Iraq struck a land mine in 2003. After dozens of operations during a nearly threeyear recovery, Martinez became a motivational speaker and in 2008 won a role on the now-retired ABC soap opera “All My Children.”

It’s a tradition that has become as American as the turkey and trimmings of Thanksgiving: Black Friday holiday shopping. But the shopping started earlier than usual, as for the first time many retailers opened late on Thursday instead of early-morning Friday. And Lawrence residents showed up in droves seeking deals, though some said the change in store openings encroached on the holiday. Others said they see the shopping as part of the holiday. Brenda Kratzberg, Ottawa, and her mother, daughter, sister and niece said they all met in Lawrence for post-Thanksgiving, pre-Christmas shopping on this day every year for almost 15 years. And some folks said they thought this year’s activity had been more subdued than in the past — maybe that global recession we’ve been hearing about? — but almost all said the crowds they did see were well contained and the waiting wasn’t too bad.

KU should be wary of implementing ex-provost’s strategy By Dolph C. Simons Jr.

News that former Kansas University Provost Richard Lariviere has been told his contract as president of the University of Oregon will not be renewed is sure to trigger considerable discussion among his former KU associates, as well as many others around the state. Lariviere has been president at Oregon since July 2009 after serving as KU’s provost from 2006 to 2009. Prior to moving to Lawrence, he was dean of the College of Liberal Arts at the University of Texas. Chances are, he arrived in Lawrence with the idea of moving into the chancellorship after several years as provost. However, former Chancellor Robert Hemenway gave no signals he intended to step aside in the foreseeable future, so Lariviere decided it was time to move. An Oregon news story telling

of the OU board’s decision to terminate Lariviere’s contract said, “He came from the University of Kansas, where he was provost and brought a brainy (he has a doctorate in Sanskrit from the University of Pennsylvania) and a sharp-elbowed style that was refreshing to some and offensive to others.” This description of Lariviere probably is shared by a large percentage of those who knew him when he was here in Lawrence. The Oregon report continued, “He gave substantial raises to U of O faculty in the teeth of the recession, spoke provocatively for a college president (comparing college athletes to Lady Gaga) and, in his most controversial move, shopped an idea to have the state sell $1 million in bonds, which the U of O would match with private fundraising.” The report added that Lariviere

gents universities don’t have. They are increasing their efforts to point out the differences and strengths of KU relative to the other schools. Apparently, Lariviere’s effort to initiate a similar plan at Oregon didn’t work and upset too many throughout the state. KU officials need to be careful of how they try to sell KU’s specialness and seek to separate themselves from the state’s other regents universities. Over the years, KU has had to fight the image, often self-inflicted, of being “snob hill.” A not-too-subtle effort to place KU in a special category is not likely to set well with many state legislators and alumni and friends of other state universities. While at KU, Lariviere led the reorganization of the graduate school and the School of Fine Arts. Please see COLUMN, page 4A

The jury still is divided as to whether these were good moves. Currently, KU officials are in the final stages of selecting a new dean for the graduate school. This search, however, is considerably different than search efforts for graduate school deans at other major research institutions. Traditionally, the excellence of a university’s graduate school and the academic and research excellence of its dean, faculty members and students have been used as a yardstick to judge the overall excellence of a university. A great graduate school usually was a sign of a great university. Here at KU, however, university officials are quick to say the dean of the graduate school is a “dean without a faculty. The dean is more of a coordinator.” They suggest the faculty of the graduate school is the entire faculty of the university. Undoubtedly, the four in-house KU candidates for the deanship are topflight and able individuals, but wouldn’t an unlimited search effort for candidates from within the school, as well as outstanding individuals from throughout the country or even abroad, say something about the desire of KU officials to seek the very best and elevate the excellence and reputation of the university? Time will tell whether the Lariviere plan to transform the KU graduate school will turn out to be good or bad for the school, and the university overall, in attracting outstanding faculty and students. The manner in which those serving on the Oregon university system’s board

handled the Lariviere matter shows a strong, knowledgeable, involved and courageous body of individuals deeply concerned about the operation and excellence of the universities they oversee. They didn’t sit on their hands. Some time ago, they gave Lariviere a one-year extension but told him he would have to shape up if he expected to stay around for a longer tenure. Apparently, they didn’t think Lariviere was making progress, and they pulled the plug this week. He was given the option of either resigning or accepting the termination of his contract. A few days ago, he said he didn’t know which option he would take. Unfortunately, in recent years, the Kansas Board of Regents has not demonstrated a similar resolve in handling serious, delicate personnel matters. They have preferred to have some of these tough decision made by those on the campuses or let the situations drift and get worse until they or their on-campus surrogates were forced into action. On the other hand, recent situations suggest the regents have been in the dark about what is going on at the universities they are supposed to oversee. Friends of Lariviere are sure to be sorry things did not work out for him in Oregon. He’s smart, a dreamer, articulate and makes a good appearance. He has much to offer higher education. Universities need individuals who do not settle for mediocrity, who will challenge the status quo. Unfortunately, his manner seriously handicapped him at KU. Apparently, he ran into the same people problems, and his sharp elbows bruised too many in Oregon.

NOVEMBER IS ADOPT-A-SENIOR-PET MONTH Think of a dog that is already trained and doesn’t chew your valuables, or a cat that doesn’t scratch all the furniture. And, they know where to do their business! That’s what you get (and more) when you adopt a senior pet. During Adopt-a-Senior-Pet Month, please take the opportunity to get acquainted with older pets available at the Lawrence Humane Society. These loving companions still have much to offer and they don’t ask for much in return: just a warm place to sleep, good meals, and plenty of love. Do you or someone you know have room in your family for a senior cat or senior dog? Just think of all the fun you’ll have taking midday naps in the recliner, playing chess in the park, going on leisurely strolls around town, and hitting the early bird special!

DAISY

Some spooky eyes, huh? Don’t let them scare you away – I’m just trying to look somber, like my name, which doesn’t fit me at all. When I’m not mugging for the camera, I’m an adorable, funloving kitty, a bit laid back, and happy to share my space with other cats. If you want to see smiling eyes, just run your hand over my beautiful silky coat. Ah, that’s smooth, that’s sweet, that’s special – that’s me!

Just a sweet young lady, I’m a wonderful Labrador Retriever mix with a smooth and shiny coat of solid black. I’ve been in a foster home where I love playing with the other dogs and exploring the world on long walks. Still just a puppy, I yearn to grow up big in a forever home of my own, and I need someone to provide me attention and training so I can become the best I can be. Is that you?

It’s Adopt-a-Senior-Pet Month, and I’ve got about a decade of experience now which means you’ll find me to be very calm, friendly and low maintenance. My big, bushy tri-color coat makes me one handsome woman, and you’ll want to rub me all day long. My former owners dropped me at the shelter, said they worked too much to care for me. That’s really sad because I don’t ask for much, except love. Maybe now you can give me a comfy home for my golden years?

Have you seen a more eager face than this one? Such a sweet girl am I — friendly, outgoing, brimming with energy, and my Labrador and Weimaraner bloodline makes me an athlete supreme. So if you’re looking for an active partner, look no further. At just a year and a half old, I’m lean and lovely and would love to run, ‘n play, ‘n hike, ‘n jog for miles with you, for you, forever.

When visited by the lovely ladies here at my shelter, I cause the cheeks to blush and a rapid heartbeat. For I am a beautiful Lionhead rabbit and masterfully effective in the art of seduction. I get along with most anyone, including children, and would make for a loving companion. I have been here longer than any of the other animals on this page, which obviously is due to the fear of my powerful ability to capture a heart.

At about 7 pounds, I’m just a little guy who’s big on fun! Attention? I can’t get enough. And love? I can’t give enough! Don’t think me an ordinary black cat. No way. The folks here say I have an “awesomely unique personality.” What’s that mean? I guess the only way to learn my secret is to come meet me. I’m 3 to 5 years old, full of play, and as your best friend, I’m simply a “saint” (as in Nicholas!).

Take a gander at my long, black/red tortoiseshell coat, and just try not to fall in love. I’m even more stunning in person, so please come for a visit. I’m in Catopia, our free-roaming “colony” housing area at the shelter, and you’ll find me chillin’ in my bed because that’s what I like best. But give me a petting, and you’ll quickly discover how friendly I am. Since I’m about 10 years old, I’d prefer a quieter place to live.

Group calls on Kan. residents to buy local, state products

TOPEKA (AP) — Kansas leaders and private groups are encouraging state residents to consider shopping from local artists and small businesses while looking for holiday presents. The effort comes as the entire country is noting “Small Business Saturday” today. In signing a declaration for Kansas, Gov. Sam Brownback called small businesses “the lifeblood of our communities. One group, called Kansas Originals Market and Gallery, represents more than 250 Kansas artists. It has a website, www.kansasoriginals.com, and two shops along Interstate 70 — near Man shot on 2005 Wilson and five miles east of holiday recovering Topeka. “We have had three bus WICHITA — The family of tours in here a week, many of a Wichita high school senior the people from out-of-state, says he is a Thanksgiving and people rave about what miracle. we have here,” said Marge After graduating from Lawson, chief executive of Northeast Magnet High School the nonprofit organization next year, Jay Jay Warner plans founded two decades ago by to pursue a college degree in psychology. That didn’t seem possible in 2005, when Jay Jay was shot in the neck outside his home on the evening before Thanksgiving in a drive-by shooting. Verlene Warner says 18-year-old Jay Jay is her “miracle senior.” He has limited use of his of his right hand and some pain, but has moved on from the shooting. The Wichita Eagle reports that Jay Jay will attend Butler Community College and then transfer to Kansas State University. Police say the shooter was aiming at a vehicle in front of the Warners’ house and hit Jay Jay instead.

We have products you can’t find anywhere else,” Lawson said. Buying local products helps the state’s economy, said Becky Sullivan, education event coordinator for the Kansas Department of Agriculture. She is also director of the Simply Kansas program, which represents 400 Kansas companies that produce, process or grow their own products, The Wichita Eagle reported. “When it comes to the holiday season, appreciate your state and the people working next to you by buying the products they are working on,” Sullivan said. She said it’s worth touring the state to visit some of the businesses, such as Jinks Traditional Fruitcake in Colum-

From barbecue sauces and jelly to lavender insect repellent, honey and jerky, the products are diverse and ingenious, Sullivan said. “The innovation blows me away,” Sullivan said. “These companies keep on the cutting edge. Kansans have definitely learned to adapt to the times and changes.”

Thieves ruin students’ ‘Stuff the Bus’ project WINFIELD — Three southcentral Kansas high school students are trying to use what they’ve learned about psychology to figure out why some people can be heartless. The three are taking a psychology class at Winfield High School. They organized a “Stuff the Bus” event earlier this month, inviting people to fill a bus with new and used clothing for the Winfield Thrift Store. The Winfield Daily Courier reports that on Nov. 13 they delivered more than half a busload of clothing to the thrift store and left the items on a sidewalk. The worker in charge of sorting the donations went to get some food first and returned to find everything gone. Police say the thieves must have needed several trips to haul everything away. The case remains unsolved.

The Wichita Eagle reports that Colby Sandlian and his partnership group are considering possible casino-related businesses on the Kansas Turnpike frontage land across from the casino site. The land once was held by Harrah’s as it competed to build the casino. The 80-year-old Sandlian was noncommittal about whether his group would close the deal. He says a lot of research has to be done before his group decides whether to build such businesses as hotels, restaurants, retail and entertainment venues. Sandlian declined to release details of the contract. Peninsula Gaming’s $260-million casino, events center and hotel complex is scheduled to open early next year.

Prosecutor: Reagan, Bush not criminally liable By Pete Yost Associated Press

WASHINGTON — One of the prosecutors who investigated the Iran-Contra affair concluded two decades ago that neither Ronald Reagan nor George H.W. Bush was criminally liable in the scandal that tarnished the presidencies of both men, according to reports made public Friday. Associate independent counsel Christian Mixter reached that conclusion in 1991 even though he found that President Reagan was briefed in advance about every weapons shipment sold to Iran in the arms-forhostages deals in 1985-86. In a separate report on Bush, Mixter wrote that the thenvice president was chairman of a committee that recommended mining the harbors of Nicaragua in 1983. Mixter’s reports were obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request from the National Security Archive, a nonprofit research group, which released them on the 25th anniversary of the Iran-Contra scandal. At a Nov. 25, 1986, White House news conference, Reagan and then-Attorney General Edwin Meese disclosed that money from the arms sales to Iran had been diverted to the Contra guerrillas fighting the leftist government of Nicaragua after Congress had cut off military aid to the rebels. Mixter concluded it would be difficult to prosecute Reagan for violating the Arms Export Control Act mandating congressional notification of arms transfers through a third country — Israel in the case of the Reagan White House’s secret arms sales to Iran in 1985. The reason, said Mixter, was that Meese had told Reagan the National Security Act could be invoked to supersede the export control act. Mixter’s March 1991 reports to his boss, Independent Counsel Lawrence Walsh, and his team of prosecutors noted that they were actively investigating Bush, who by then had become president. “As we have discussed,” Mixter wrote to Walsh and the other prosecutors, “there is an outstanding area of investigation that could conceivably lead to wholly new evidence regarding Mr. Bush’s role in Iran-Contra.” The topic concerned possible knowledge by Bush of secret military support for the Contras, including the recommendation to mine the Nicaraguan harbors. A year after Mixter wrote his reports, Walsh obtained a grand jury indictment charging former Reagan administration Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger with concealing his detailed notes of the controversy from investigators. Bush pardoned Weinberger and five other IranContra figures shortly before the former defense secretary was to go on trial in a case in which Bush could well have been summoned as a witness either by prosecutors or defense attorneys. In a final report by prosecutors released in 1994 more than a year following Bush’s pardons, Walsh stated that Reagan acquiesced in a coverup that had been spearheaded by Meese and carried out at the top levels of the Reagan administration. The report was immediately denounced by Reagan, Meese, Bush and others. Impeachment of Reagan “certainly should have been considered” by the congressional committees investigating the Iran-Contra affair, Walsh told a news conference at the time. Mixter’s reports on Reagan and Bush reflect the absence of evidence demonstrating that Reagan or Bush hid information from investigators. Both men participated in meetings of Reagan and his inner circle in which one or the other covert operations was discussed.

SYRIA

Despite facing sanctions, army stands by regime By Bassem Mroue and Elizabeth A. Kennedy Associated Press

BEIRUT — The Syrian military vowed Friday to “cut every evil hand” that targets the country’s security, a defiant stance by the regime as it faces the possibility of sweeping economic sanctions from the Arab League. The military statement could signal darker days to come in an eight-month revolt against President Bashar Assad that is turning more violent by the day. Until recently in the uprising, most of the bloodshed came as security forces fired on mainly peaceful protests. But there have been growing reports of army defectors and armed civilians fighting Assad’s forces — a development that some say plays into the regime’s hands by giving government troops a pretext to crack down with overwhelming force. “The choice offered by the regime appears clear-cut: preservation of Assad’s rule or collective destruction,” the International Crisis Group said in a report this week.

Assad blames the unrest on a foreign plot to destabilize Syria, saying extremists and terrorists — not true reformers — are driving the calls to oust him. On Friday, the military blamed terrorists for an attack a day earlier in Homs, saying six elite pilots and four technical officers were killed in an ambush. “The general command of the armed forces sees that enemies of the country are behind this terrorist act,” the military said. “The armed forces will continue to carry out its mission ... and will cut every evil hand that targets Syrian blood.” Although many Syrians resent police and intelligence agencies that they blame for oppressing the uprising, they respect the armed forces, which is seen as a bulwark against Israel. Unlike the armies of Tunisia and Egypt, Syria’s military has stood fiercely by the country’s leader as Assad faces down an extraordinary protest movement. In the past 40 years, Assad and his father before him stacked key military posts with members of their minor-

ity Alawite sect — an offshoot of Shiite Islam — ensuring the loyalty of the armed forces by melding the fate of the army and the regime. Syria is overwhelmingly Sunni Muslim. “Many regime supporters are terrified about their future and thus liable to resist till the bitter end,” the Brussels-based ICG said in its report. “A majority of Alawite officials, security officers and ordinary citizens, along with segments of the Christian community and some secularists, have become convinced that their fate is either to kill or be killed.” It is not clear who was behind Thursday’s attacks. It’s impossible to verify events on the ground because Syria has banned foreign journalists and prevented independent reporting. Syria is the scene of the deadliest crackdown against the Arab Spring’s eruption of protests, with the U.N. reporting more than 3,500 people killed in eight months. International pressure has been mounting on Assad to stop the killing. Also Friday, a U.N. human rights panel expressed alarm

at reports it received of security forces in Syria torturing children. The Geneva-based Committee against Torture says it has received “numerous, consistent and substantiated reports” of widespread abuse in the country. The panel’s chairman, Claudio Grossman, cited reports of “extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions; arbitrary detention by police forces and the military; and enforced and involuntary disappearances.” The Arab League gave Syria a 24-hour deadline to agree to an observer mission or face sanctions, a humiliating blow to a nation that was a founding member of the Arab coalition. But the Friday afternoon deadline passed with no agreement. Instead, Arab League Secretary-General Nabil Elaraby received a letter from Syria seeking more details about the proposed observer mission and its legal status. The league will meet today to decide sanctions, according to Arab League deputy Secretary-General Ahmed Ben Heli. The punishments could include halting flights and imposing a freeze on financial dealings and assets.

Egypt’s military under pressure from U.S. CAIRO — The U.S. increased pressure Friday on Egypt’s military rulers to hand over power to civilian leaders, and the generals turned to a Mubarak-era politician to head a new government in a move that failed to satisfy the more than 100,000 protesters who jammed Tahrir Square in the biggest rally yet this week. The demonstrators rejected the appointment of Kamal el-Ganzouri as prime minister, breaking into chants of “Illegitimate! Illegitimate!” and setting up a showdown between the two sides only three days before key parliamentary elections. The size of the rally and the resilience of protesters in the face of the violence used by security forces in this week’s deadly street battles have won back for the movement much of the strength it projected during the 18-day uprising that ousted President Hosni Mubarak in February. Showing the sort of resolve from the earliest days of the Arab Spring, the protesters say they will not leave the iconic square until the military rulers led by Field Marshal Hussein Tantawi step down and a civilian presidential council is formed to run the country until a new leader is elected.

Shoppers scuffle on Black Friday By Anne D’innocenzio and Mae Anderson Associated Press

A shopper in Los Angeles pepper-sprayed her competition for an Xbox and scuffles broke out elsewhere around the U.S. as bargain-hunters crowded stores in an earlierthan-usual start to the madness known as Black Friday. For the first time, chains such as Target, Best Buy and Kohl’s opened their doors at midnight on the most anticipated shopping day of the year. Toys R Us opened for the second straight year on Thanksgiving itself. And some shoppers arrived with sharp elbows. Near Muskegon, Mich., a teenage girl was knocked down and stepped on several times after getting caught in the rush to a sale in the electronics department at a Walmart. She suffered minor injuries. On Thanksgiving night, a Walmart in Los Angeles brought out a crate of discounted Xboxes, and as a crowd waited for the video game players to be unwrapped, a woman fired pepper spray at the other shoppers “in order to get an advantage,” police said. Ten people suffered cuts and bruises in the chaos, and 10 others had minor injuries from the spray, authorities said. The woman got away in the confusion, and it was not immediately clear whether she got an Xbox. On Friday morning, police said, two women were injured and a man was charged after a fight broke out at an upstate New York Walmart. A man was arrested in a scuffle at a jewelry counter at a Walmart in Kissimmee, Fla. Wal-Mart Stores, the nation’s biggest retailer, has taken steps in recent years to control its Black Friday crowds following the 2008 death of one of its workers in a stampede of shoppers. This year, it staggered its doorbuster deals instead of offering them all at once.

A CUSTOMER RIDES AN ESCALATOR Thursday while shopping in the Toys R Us in Times Square in New York. This week , many stores for the first time used midnight openings along with the usual bevy of deals as they try to lure consumers, whose appetite for good buys has been increasing since the Great Recession. Wal-Mart spokesman Greg Rossiter said Black Friday was safe at most of its nearly 4,000 U.S., but there were “a few unfortunate incidents.” The incidents were attributed to two converging Black Friday trends: Crowds are getting bigger as stores open earlier and stay open later. At the same time, cash-strapped shoppers are competing for deals on a small number of gifts that everybody wants — tablet computers, TVs and game consoles like Xbox, Nintendo 3DS and Wii. That’s a shift from years past, when there was a wider range of must-have items. “The more the people, the more the occurrences,” said Marshal Cohen, chief industry analyst with market research firm The NPD Group. A record number of shoppers are expected this weekend to take advantage of discounts of up to 70 percent. For three days starting on Black Friday, 152 million people are expected to shop, either online or in stores, an increase

of about 10 percent from last year, according to the National Retail Federation. Thanksgiving weekend, particularly Black Friday, is huge for retailers. Over the past six years, Black Friday was the biggest sales day of the year, and it is expected to keep that crown this year, though shoppers seem to be procrastinating more every year, and the fate of the holiday season is increasingly coming down to the last few days before Christmas. Last year, the Thanksgiving shopping weekend accounted for 12.1 percent of overall holiday sales, according to ShopperTrak, a research firm. Black Friday made up about half of that. ShopperTrak is expected to release sales data today on how Black Friday fared, but a better picture will emerge when major retailers report their November sales figures next Thursday. In addition to opening earlier than usual this year, some stores offered to match their

competitors’ prices, rolled out layaway programs or offered more door-buster deals than last year. Emmanuel Merced and his brother showed up at a Best Buy in New York at 3 p.m. on Wednesday so they could be the first in line when it opened at midnight Thursday to grab a Sharp 42-inch TV for $199.99, a PlayStation 3 with games for $199.99 and wireless headphones for $30. Merced said he likes camping out for Black Friday and figured he saved 50 percent. “I like the experience of it,” said Merced, who plans to spend $3,000 to $4,000 on gifts this season. To be sure, not every place was full on Black Friday. With so many major stores opening at midnight, many people stayed up late and shopped early. Then there were those who stuck to their normal routine of going to stores that opened later Friday morning. That left a lull in the hours just before and after daybreak.

Dare Democrats to do something about debt WASHINGTON — Democrats are unanimous in charging that the debtreduction supercommittee collapsed because Republicans refused to raise taxes. Apparently, Republicans are in the thrall of one Grover Norquist, the anti-tax campaigner, whom Sen. John Kerry called “the 13th member of this committee without being there.” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid helpfully suggested “maybe they should impeach Grover Norquist.” With that, Norquist officially replaces the Koch brothers as the great malevolent manipulator that controls the republic by pulling unseen strings on behalf of the plutocracy. Nice theory. Except for the following facts: !" Sen. Tom Coburn last year signed on to the Simpson-Bowles tax reform that would have increased tax revenues by $1 trillion over a decade. !" During the debt-ceiling talks, Speaker John Boehner agreed to an $800 billion revenue increase as part of a Grand Bargain. !" Supercommittee member Pat Toomey, a Club for Growth Republican, proposed increasing tax revenues by $300 billion as part of $1.2 trillion in debt reduction. Leading, very conservative Republicans proposing tax increases. So why does the myth of the Norquistcontrolled anti-tax monolith persist? You might suggest cynicism and perversity. Let me offer a more benign explanation: thickheadedness. Democrats simply can’t tell the difference between tax revenues and tax rates.

Charles Krauthammer

letters@charleskrauthammer.com

Raising revenues through tax reform is better than simply raising rates, which Democrats insist upon with near religious fervor.”

In deficit reduction, all that matters is tax revenues. The holders of our national debt care not a whit what tax rates yield the money to pay them back. They care about the sum. The Republican proposals raise revenues, despite lowering rates, by opening a gusher of new income for the Treasury in the form of loophole elimination. For example, the Toomey plan eliminates deductions by $300 billion more than the reduction in tax rates “cost.” Result: $300 billion in new revenues. The Simpson-Bowles commission — appointed by President Obama and endorsed by Coburn — used the same formula. Its tax reform would lower tax rates at a “cost” of $1 tril-

lion a year while eliminating loopholes that deprive the Treasury of $1.1 trillion a year. This would leave the Treasury with an excess — i.e., new tax revenues — of $100 billion a year, or $1 trillion over a decade. Raising revenues through tax reform is better than simply raising rates, which Democrats insist upon with near religious fervor. It is more economically efficient because it eliminates credits, carveouts and deductions that grossly misallocate capital. And it is more fair because it is the rich who can afford not only the sharp lawyers and accountants who exploit loopholes but the lobbyists who create them in the first place. Yet the Democrats, who flatter themselves as the party of fairness, are instead obsessed with raising tax rates on the rich as a sign of civic virtue. This is perverse in three ways: (1) Raising rates gratuitously slows economic growth, i.e., expansion of the economic pie for everyone, by penalizing work and by retaining inefficiency-inducing loopholes. (2) We’re talking pennies on the dollar. Obama’s coveted Bush tax cut repeal would yield the Treasury, at the very most, $80 billion a year — offsetting 2 cents on the dollar of government spending ($3.6 trillion). (3) Hiking tax rates ignores the real drivers of debt, which, as Obama himself has acknowledged, are entitlements. Has the president ever publicly proposed a single significant struc-

tural change in any entitlement? After Simpson-Bowles reported? No. In his February budget? No. In his April 13 budget “framework”? No. During the debt-ceiling crisis? No. During or after the supercommittee deliberations? No. As regarding the supercommittee, Obama was AWOL — then immediately pounced on its failure by going on TV to repeat his incessantly repeated campaign theme of the donothing (Republican) Congress. A swell slogan that fits nicely with the Norquist myth. Except for another inconvenient fact: It is the Republicans who passed — through the House, the only branch of government they control — a real budget that cut $5.8 trillion of spending over the next 10 years. Obama’s February budget, which would have increased spending, was laughed out of the Senate, voted down 97-0. As for the Democratic Senate, it has submitted no budget at all for two and a half years. Who, then, is do-nothing? Republicans should happily take on this absurd, and central, Democratic campaign plank. Bring Simpson-Bowles to the House floor and pass the most radical of its three deficit-reduction alternatives. Dare the Senate Democrats to vote down the grandest of all bargains. Dare Obama to veto his own debt commission. Dare the Democrats to actually do something about debt. — Charles Krauthammer is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.

Loring, I am sure that at times you feel you are in a thankless and frustrating job, but believe us, many people here in the community really appreciate all you do. Keep up the good work and God bless. For all those reading this, we hope you are supporting Loring’s efforts on the new shelter. Tom and Cathy Waller, Lawrence

College: Energy program graduates in demand HUTCHINSON (AP) — A renewable energy technology program started last year at Hutchinson Community College with federal stimulus money has filled up quickly with students, who are already in demand from employers. Students with an understanding of renewable energy technology — geothermal, wind and solar — have “huge” opportunities for employment, said Jackie Long, co-chair of the computer and industrial technology department. Employers call at least once a month, and sometimes once a week, asking when students in the program will be available to hire, she said. The college created the program last year after receiving $323,000 in federal stimulus money from the U.S. Department of Commerce. The program focuses on the mechanical, electrical and hydraulic components of energygenerating equipment, The Hutchinson News reported. Currently, the renewable energy technology program is full with 15 students, Long said.

“Companies are asking for workers with a good, solid, deep knowledge in those three areas, and they can train them on the areas more specific to their company,” Long said. “So we have been adamant that the program stay somewhat foundational so a graduate could go into any one of the renewable technology areas.” The college, in partnership with the Hutchinson school district’s Career and Technical Education Academy has proposed using part of the federal money to install of a 90-foot, 5 kilowatt wind turbine. The project must be approved by the college’s board of trustees, the city and the school district. If approved, it would be connected to a renewable energy technology lab at the academy and be used for education rather than to create electricity. It would complement smaller, desk-sized turbines students can work on in a lab environment. Long is hopeful the college will soon unveil plans for a solar energy component for the program as well.

KANSAS WOMEN 90, LAMAR 40

Tom Keegan tkeegan@ljworld.com

Releford’s defense never rests With a bench that’s thinner than the traffic going from Lawrence to Arrowhead Stadium will be today, Kansas University’s basketball team can’t afford for any of its four juniors new to the starting lineup to flop. Based on the way they played in the Maui Invitational, it looks as if they’re ready for the responsibility. Thomas Robinson’s strong play was expected and not what left those who made the trip to watch KU feeling better about the team. Elijah Johnson showed he has the versatility to create his own shot driving to the hoop and stopping and popping long three-pointers. He made KU’s biggest bucket against Georgetown on a drive and hit the biggest shot in the Duke game, putting Kansas up 61-60 with 1:33 left by drilling a threepointer with a defender in his face. In the game between those two big shots, Johnson torched UCLA for 23 points. Jeff Withey, after watching most of the Georgetown game because of foul trouble, played much better against UCLA and had a particularly strong first half against Duke and finished with 14 points, 10 rebounds and two blocked shots. While the contributions of the improved Johnson and Withey screamed loudly, it was stealth standout Travis Releford’s play that came as the biggest relief. Slowed by a long-lasting ankle injury that hit just as he was starting to come on a year ago, Releford played poorly in Madison Square Garden in a 10-point loss to No. 2 Kentucky. He had four points, three rebounds, didn’t have an assist and turned it over five times. Was it just an off night or was he out of his league? Considering he’s not a particularly gifted passer, dribbler or shooter, it seemed like a fair question. He answered it in Hawaii by playing well against strong competition. Releford put the big-time clamps on Duke’s leading scorer, Seth Curry, holding him to single digits for the first time all season. Curry made just two of eight shots and scored nine points. Against Georgetown, Releford was extremely productive late in the game, converting a weak-side offensive rebound into a bucket, chasing down a loose ball and hitting a pair of free throws. He scored 10 points and also held Hoyas sharpshooter Hollis Thompson to four second-half points. Coming into the season, Releford knew where he needed to excel. “Defense has always been a strength,” he said. “Coming into games, I’m always thinking about the things I need to do on defense. I never go into a game thinking about anything on the offensive end. If I stop the other team’s best player, that gives us a chance of winning, and it keeps me on the court.” Playing behind Brady Morningstar, Releford studied the things that made him a standout defender. “He was always getting in the guy’s head, changing how the guy’s playing, making him uncomfortable,” Releford said. “He was real smart on defense. He knew how to get around screens and get under guys. He did stuff you can’t teach. I’m longer, stronger, taller and hopefully just as good.” Or better. KU needs to play great defense to win, and Releford needs to be the best of the bunch. Nobody in Maui defended better than Releford.

Kansas returns from Islands By Gary Bedore gbedore@ljworld.com

Kansas University basketball notebook. ... The Jayhawks’ return charter flight from Maui flew through the night and wee hours of the morning and landed at Topeka’s Forbes Field at 9 a.m. Friday. The players were able to sleep in their own beds Friday afternoon prior to a 7 p.m. workout in KU’s practice facility adjacent to Allen Fieldhouse. Coach Bill Self awarded his players, who went 2-1 in Maui, some free time Wednesday night after the championship game against Duke and again Thursday. Prior to departure, the coaches and players feasted on a Thanksgiving Day buffet Thursday afternoon at Hard Rock Cafe in downtown Lahaina. KU (3-2) will meet Florida Atlantic (3-3) at 7 p.m. Wednesday in Allen Fieldhouse. !

KANSAS’ KEENA MAYS (23) SLICES THROUGH THE LAMAR DEFENSE for an easy layup. Mays led the Jayhawks with 14 points in a 90-40 rout on Friday at Allen Fieldhouse.

Starters rested in rout of Lamar By Benton Smith basmith@ljworld.com

Kansas University’s women’s basketball team didn’t have much use for its regular contributors in a 90-40 beating of Lamar Friday night at Allen Fieldhouse. The Jayhawks opened their three-day Basketball Travelers Classic by pasting the Cardinals thanks to 43 points and 33 rebounds from their bench. On a night no KU starter logged more than 21 minutes, coach Bonnie Henrickson said the team’s seven substitutes, who, like the starters, all scored and grabbed at least one rebound, needed a night like that. “That was fun,” Henrickson said. “They earned that. They deserved that.” The Jayhawks’ top seven players enjoyed the vast majority of the second half from the comfort of the KU bench. Junior forward Carolyn Davis (12 points) left the game for good with 17:58 left in second half and KU up, 58-24. Following the first media timeout of the second half, senior forward Aishah Sutherland (11 points, five boards) was the only starter on the floor, playing with freshman guard Asia Boyd, freshman forward Bunny Williams and sophomore guards CeCe Harper and Keena Mays. At 14:30, freshman forward Chelsea Gardner, who had played just two minutes in KU’s previous three games, entered. Even sixth man Mays (14 points, four rebounds) left with more than 12

With subs getting heavy minutes late, Boyd had ample opportunity to show off her versatility. The 6-foot-1 Detroit newcomer used crossovers, spin moves and physical drives to get to the paint on an 11-point, fourrebound night after getting no minutes whatsoever in the Jayhawks’ first three wins. Henrickson said Boyd had been doing more of what the coaching staff wanted at practice, namely not being flashy, joking she tells Boyd to play like the coach dances.

Said Boyd: “I was trying to stay patient, and I just watched and learned (in the first three games) from Monica (Engelman) and Angel (Goodrich).” Henrickson said Boyd had not only done that, but worked hard in practice to earn her minutes and starring second-half role in the blowout. “I love her energy,” the coach said. “She’s playing hard.” Henrickson also complimented Harper for her six points, seven Please see KU WOMEN, page 3B

Bad call in final?: ESPN analyst Jay Bilas, who worked the games in Maui, agrees with hordes of KU fans who felt Duke’s Seth Curry should have been called for traveling on the key possession of the Blue Devils’ 68-61 title victory on Wednesday night at Lahaina Civic Center. Curry passed the basketball from up top to Tyler Thornton, who heaved in an acrobatic three from the corner with :20 left. That three gave Duke a 6661 lead. “On the decisive play of the Duke-Kansas final, Seth Curry did not travel, he traveled twice. The officials simply missed it,” Bilas wrote on ESPN.com. “The contrast in the crowd when Tyler Thornton hit his circus shot was priceless. The Cameron side was jumping around in utter disbelief and joy, and the Phog side was jumping up and down giving the universal signal for traveling. It was bedlam, and it was a really cool scene,” Bilas added. It appeared the 2,400-seat arena was split in half with fans of both schools in the gym ... and loud. “To me, Cameron and the Phog are the two best basketball venues on the planet, and it was pretty cool to have them both represented in the same building and such a cozy atmosphere. All that was missing were the students,” Bilas wrote in his ESPN.com piece. !

More from Bilas on KU: The Jayhawks’ lack of a deep roster continues to be a major story line early this season. Bilas took notice that just five Jayhawks — Tyshawn Taylor (17), Thomas Robinson (16), Jeff Withey (14), Elijah Johnson (10) and Travis Releford (4) — scored versus Duke. “Kansas has played as difficult a schedule as anyone in the country thus far. Bill Self has seen his team grow, and the Jayhawks are going to be good. Please see KU MEN, page 3B

Eudora faces tough challenge in 4A final By Benton Smith basmith@ljworld.com

Eudora High’s football team has seen its share of quality opponents this season en route to the Class 4A state championship game. However, none has been as dynamic as Rose Hill, the Cardinals’ opponent at 1 p.m. today at Salina District Stadium. After all, this is the best of the east — EHS (12-1) — against the best of the west — the Rockets (12-1). Said Eudora coach Gregg Webb: “This is probably the

most challenging week that we’ve had all year as far as trying to scheme a way to stop them, but I suppose that’s the way it’s supposed to be when you’re playing for a state championship.” Webb, who coached in nine state title games and won five at Claflin, said simply moving the football against RHHS, which has allowed just 10.7 points a game, could be difficult enough. Throw in the fact that the Rockets have a dual-threat quarterback, senior Derrick Decker, and things get a bit more complicated.

Rose Hill (averaging 43.3 points), Webb added, is rolling on offense because of Decker, whom he said could be the best QB Eudora has faced all year. The thing that makes Decker so tough to prepare for, the coach said, is his ability to run or throw. “When you put a kid back there at quarterback that can do both … successfully, then you’ve got issues,” Webb said. The Cardinals’ defense, on par with Rose Hill’s in allowing only 10.6 points, has made a habit of taming high-powered

offenses. Eudora’s previous five opponents have a combined record of 41-15, but scored an average of just 11.6 points against EHS. The Cardinals held Basehor-Linwood (42.7 ppg) to 21 and Chanute (30.3) to 13, and Paola, which scored 43.5 points a game against every other team it played besides Eudora, was held to 10 twice this season by EHS. Eudora’s offensive effectiveness, Webb said, will play just as much of a role as the defense in limiting Rose Hill’s scoring.

NBA players, owners meeting again NEW YORK (AP) — NBA owners and players resumed talks Friday aimed at ending the 148-day lockout in time to save the league’s Christmas Day schedule. That deadline has created a sense of urgency because the Dec. 25 schedule is traditionally a showcase for the league. This season’s threegame slate was to include Miami at Dallas in an NBA finals rematch,

plus MVP Derrick Rose leading Chicago into Los Angeles to face Kobe Bryant and the Lakers. After a secret meeting earlier this week, the sides returned to the table for more than 10 hours of discussions. Commissioner David Stern has said the league needs about 30 days from an agreement to when games could be played. Participating in the talks for the

Chiefs won’t start Orton ‌ yet KANSAS CITY, MO. (AP) — Todd Haley admits he was surprised that Kyle Orton’s name popped up on the waiver wire. The fact it happened just after the Kansas City Chiefs lost starting quarterback Matt Cassel to a season-ending injury to his throwing hand made it almost serendipitous. Orton finally joined the Chiefs on Friday, two days after he was claimed off waivers from the Denver Broncos. He’ll have the chance to compete for the starting job for the rest of the year, though it’s unlikely he’ll be up to speed in time for Sunday night’s game against Pittsburgh. “We have to get Kyle assimilated into how we’re doing things,â€? Haley said, “and then make decisions as we get closer to the game, and then obviously next week.â€? Haley wouldn’t rule out Orton being active against the Steelers, at least in a third quarterback role, assuming he learns enough of the playbook in just 48 hours. But the coach said Tyler Palko will make his second career start, and fifth-round draft pick Ricky Stanzi will remain the No. 2. Palko threw for 230 yards and did a reasonable job of moving the Chiefs in a 34-3 loss to New England last Monday night, but he also threw three interceptions that foiled promising drives. “I have great confidence in Tyler. I really believe that he will continue to get better and give us a chance to win a big game this week,â€? Haley said. “We had confidence in Tyler. That’s why we began the season the way we did. Had a number of opportunities to add people and we didn’t.â€? In fact, general manager Scott Pioli was roundly criticized for failing to bring in a more experienced backup to Cassel during training camp, even though several were available. Haley said that proved how much confidence the regime had in Palko, who was once cut by a UFL team and spent time playing in Canada before finally ending up on the Chiefs. But when Cassel went down for the season late in a loss to Denver two weeks ago, Haley said the team decided it needed another quarterback simply for depth. The fact Orton was cast aside by Denver, where he threw for more than 3,000 yards each of the past two seasons, made the decision to put in a waiver claim on him a “no brainer,â€? Haley said. Several other teams were interested in Orton, including the Chicago Bears, where he began his NFL career. But the Chiefs had the priority, along with plenty of room under the salary cap to absorb the roughly $2.6 million he’s owed through the rest of the season. “I wouldn’t rule out anything at this point, other than Tyler is starting the game Sunday,â€? Haley said before practice Friday night. “We’ll just have to see.â€? Palko said he wasn’t concerned about the arrival of Orton, who wasn’t made available to the media Friday. Palko has been on the practice squad and spent most of the season as the backup, and yet prepared the same each day. The son of a western Pennsylvania high school coach plans to approach practice as though he’s the starter, however long that might be. “Todd told me after practice they claimed Kyle and that was pretty much it,â€? Palko said. “You can’t be sensitive, you can’t worry about things you can’t control.â€? What Palko can control is how he performs Sunday night against the Steelers. If the former University of Pittsburgh quarterback can lead Kansas City to a victory — no small task considering the 101â „2-point spread — then he’ll have a good chance of starting the following week. If he fails to perform well against the team he grew up watching, it might not matter who the starter is the rest of the way; the Chiefs (4-6) will likely be out of playoff contention. “We understand the sense of urgency that we must have, and we understand that our margin of error is very small at this point,â€? Haley said. “We have to figure out a way to win a big game.â€?

The players were represented by executive director Billy Hunter, president Derek Fisher, vice president Maurice Evans, attorney Ron Klempner and economist Kevin Murphy.

The discussions between representatives of the owners and players are now centered on settling their lawsuits: The players filed an antitrust lawsuit against the league in Minnesota, and the league filed a pre-emptive suit in New York, seeking to prove the lockout was legal. Because the union disbanded, it cannot negotiate a new collective bargaining agreement.

Detroit’s Suh says his stomp ‘unacceptable’ DETROIT — For the first season-and-a-half of his young career, Ndamukong Suh could almost brush off talk about his penalties and fines, saying he would keep doing what was needed to help his Detroit Lions. After hurting the team with a penalty and ejection on Thanksgiving, Suh now says he has learned his lesson. “My reaction on Thursday was unacceptable,� the star defensive tackle said in a statement on his Facebook page Friday night. “I made a mistake, and have learned from it. I hope to direct the focus back to the task at hand — by winning.� The statement appeared on Suh’s page around the same time he was publically chastised by the Lions, one night after being ejected Thursday in a loss to Green Bay for stomping at an opposing player. It could be several days before Suh finds out the true cost of his third-quarter stomp in Detroit’s 27-15 loss to the Packers on Thursday. An NFL spokesman said Friday that plays from Week 12 looked at for potential discipline won’t be reviewed until all games are completed.

Packers’ Walden arrested GREEN BAY, WIS. — Green Bay Packers outside linebacker Erik Walden was arrested Friday on suspicion of felony domestic violence/substantial battery and will remain in the Brown County Jail until at least Monday. Walden allegedly assaulted his live-in girlfriend at the couple’s apartment in Lawrence, just outside of Green Bay. Because of the Thanksgiving holiday, the Brown County Court is closed for the weekend, so while Walden’s teammates have the next three days off following the team’s 27-15 Thanksgiving Day victory at Detroit, Walden will remain in jail. The Packers issued a statement Friday saying, ‘‘The Packers organization is aware of the situation involving Erik Walden. We are in the process of gathering more information and will refrain from making any further comment.� Hobart-Lawrence police chief Randy Bani told the Green Bay Press-Gazette the incident took place about 2:30 a.m. and the woman involved called authorities about 6:10 a.m. The woman was treated at a local hospital, and Walden was arrested and booked around 8 a.m., Bani told the Press-Gazette.

He requested off his studio assignment and we obliged.� Meyer has been working as a game analyst this season for ESPN, and the rest of his usual broadcast team will be covering the Buckeyes’ game against Michigan today in Ann Arbor. Earlier in the week, ESPN announced Meyer would work in the studio today.

Syracuse aide’s home searched SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Authorities involved in a sexual-abuse investigation of Syracuse University assistant basketball coach Bernie Fine carried out a search at his home Friday but declined to comment on what they were looking for. New York State Police spokesman Jack Keller said troopers were called to assist the U.S. attorney’s office at the search. Assistant U.S. Attorney William Pericak said he “can’t confirm or deny� an investigation. “We don’t comment on whether or not search warrants are being executed — we only comment at the time of public events,� Pericak said. “I’m not saying there was or wasn’t one here. But when you get a search warrant that’s sealed, it remains sealed until a court unseals it.� He said the goal is to avoid “a trial in the press.� The Post-Standard newspaper reported that four state troopers stood at the end of the driveway at Fine’s home in suburban DeWitt on Friday afternoon. It said at least six police vehicles were parked on the street and officers were looking through a trash can.

SUNDAY

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — NASCAR fined Kurt Busch $50,000 on Friday for his poor behavior during the Sprint Cup finale last weekend at Homestead-Miami Speedway. NASCAR cited both an obscene gesture Busch made inside his car and him being verbally abusive to a reporter in fining the 2004 Cup champion. “Kurt Busch showed disrespect toward a media member, an incident that followed similar inappropriate media confrontations earlier in the season,� NASCAR said in a statement announcing the penalty. Busch had a transmission problem early in Sunday’s race that sent his Penske Racing Dodge to the garage. His in-car camera caught him making an obscene gesture during that time. While his team made repairs, Busch waited to be interviewed by an ESPN reporter, and a fan videotaped Busch being verbally abusive while waiting to go live. That video was posted on YouTube, and both Penske officials and Busch have apologized in separate statements for his behavior.

rebounds and three steals off the bench. The eighth-year KU coach said Harper made good defensive decisions, too, with sound guarding. Kansas (4-0) raced out to a big lead in a hurry against Lamar (4-2) thanks in part to the play of freshman guard Natalie Knight. She passed out four of her five assists and scored six of her nine points in the first half, kept seeking out driving opportunities and was assertive in looking to score, draw a foul or set up her teammates. Later, she opened up KU’s second-half scoring by knocking down an open three-pointer from the right wing, her second trey of the victory. “They’ve been telling me to be more aggressive,” the freshman out of Olathe South said, “so I’ve been trying to do that and just getting extra shots up has made me a little more confident.” Kansas opened on a 22-6 run, primarily by scoring at point-blank range. Goodrich and Engelman started things rolling with consecutive transition layups, Davis scored six points on post-ups, sophomore forward Tania Jackson scored by flashing to the low block and converting, and a steal by Knight set up a twoon-one fast-break lay-in for Mays that gave KU a 16-point lead just more than nine minutes into the game. Knight hit her first threepointer from the right corner during the run and Sutherland buried a jumper from her favorite outside spot, at the top of the key. Mays also scored on a runner from the right side. Kansas went on two 8-0 runs in the first half, as well as a 12-0 spurt. A 15-2 Jayhawks run to close the half was highlighted by a no-look, over-the-head pass from Go-

Lamar shot just 18.8 percent in the game, as the Cardinals made just 12 of their 64 shot attempts. They had a whopping 21 misfires and no makes from behind the arc. The Jayhawks, meanwhile, went 39-for-71 for 54.9 percent from the floor, led by Davis’ 6-for-7 shooting. Mays credited the whole KU team for its defense in the drubbing. “Our defense, we were really aggressive from the beginning and just kept it going for the whole 40 minutes,” she said. “When the starters came off, the bench came in and kept up the intensity.” At 4 this afternoon, Kansas will play IUPUI (2-2), which beat Florida Atlantic, 74-64, Friday at Allen Fieldhouse.

KU’s depth. Still, the Jayhawks are very good, and will continue to get better. The margin for error, however, is slim. Kansas cannot have injuries or foul trouble.” Of Duke, Bilas noted: “Mike Krzyzewski was as happy as I have ever seen him after the Kansas win. It shows how much winning still matters to him, and also how big of a game this was. Coach K has done it all, but for his team, this was the first

Next edition of tourney: Here’s the field for the 2012 Maui Invitational: North Carolina, Texas, Marquette, Illinois, USC, Butler, Mississippi State and host Chaminade.

Nick Becker, Jared Ireland and Jarrod Kaup — and the three-headed rushing monster in the backfield — QB Derek Webb and running backs Greg Pyle and Gabe Cleveland — to make that happen. And although EHS doesn’t throw the ball often (Derek Webb has just 87 attempts and 36 completions), Gregg Webb said wide receiver Andrew Ballock (19 catches, 327 yards) may be too talented

a weapon to keep out of the game plan. The whole experience will be a little different: playing for a state championship (Eudora’s first) on a Saturday afternoon on a neutral field. But Pyle said the Cardinals aren’t too worried about any of those things. “It might be a little harder to adjust to during the warmups,” he said, “but I think once we get things going it will turn out well.”

and only Maui Invitational they would play in. He seems to really value seeing that experience through his players’ eyes, and there is a freshness to his approach. His team is better than I thought it would be, and it has been tested.” !

Central Florida 68, No. 4 Connecticut 63 PARADISE ISLAND, BAHAMAS — Marcus Jordan was headed to the foul line for two big shots Friday when a teammate passed along an encouraging message. “He told me this shot is in my blood,” Jordan said. Yup, like father, like son. Jordan, the son of Hall of Famer Michael Jordan, made two big free throws to give Central Florida the lead with 3:11 left and the Knights upset Connecticut in the semifinals of the Battle 4 Atlantis, snapping the Huskies’ 16-game winning streak. Jordan and Keith Clanton each scored 20 points for the Knights (4-1), who trailed by 17 early in the second half. Jeremy Lamb had 15 points for the defending national champion Huskies (5-1), who lost for the first time since March 5 against Notre Dame.

LSU QUARTERBACK JORDAN JEFFERSON CELEBRATES a 41-17 victory over Arkansas on Friday in Baton Rouge, La.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL ROUNDUP

LSU humbles Hogs ————

Tigers boot No. 3 Arkansas, 41-17 The Associated Press

No. 1 LSU 41, No. 3 Arkansas 17 BATON ROUGE, LA. — Tyrann Mathieu answered the call for a game-turning play when LSU needed one most, and the top-ranked Tigers piled on from there. Mathieu returned a punt 92 yards for a game-tying score, and the Tigers punished third-ranked Arkansas with 286 yards rushing, wiping out a 14-point deficit that secured a spot in the SEC championship. “I could hear my teammates in my ear saying, ‘Man, we need you to go make a play,’” Mathieu said. “I was able to help the momentum really go in our favor. “You have no idea how bad I just wanted to go out there and make a big play for our team. I was fortunate enough to be able to do that.” Kenny Hilliard, Spencer Ware and Jordan Jefferson all scored on the ground for LSU (12-0, 8-0 SEC), which is 12-0 for the first time and will play No. 13 Georgia next weekend in Atlanta. A win over the Bulldogs would assure the Tigers their third trip to the BCS title game in nine seasons. Though at this point, LSU might be able to get there even if it loses. The rivalry game with Arkansas (10-2, 6-2) for the big Boot trophy was billed as the biggest in Tiger Stadium since 1959, the last time two teams ranked in the top three clashed in Death Valley. Billy Cannon lifted No. 1 LSU to a 7-3 win over No. 3 Mississippi in that game with an 89yard punt return for a score, so it seemed fitting that the Tigers would get a similar score against the Razorbacks. “That was a huge turning point in the game,” Arkansas coach Bobby Petrino said. “We were trying to get the ball punted to the sideline, but he miss-hit it a bit and punted it to the middle. ... (Mathieu) made a great cut and made us miss at the point of attack. He made a great play.” LSU trailed 14-7 when Mathieu fielded Dylan Breeding’s end-over-end kick at his own 8, started left, made a hard cut straight up field, then angled left again to break into the clear. “It made the statement that that lead was not going to stand up,” LSU coach Les Miles said. “Our defense was going to continue to play well and our offense was coming.” Cannon also made a gamesealing tackle on defense late in that classic game against Ole Miss. Mathieu, who was playing safety instead of cornerback much of the game because of Eric Reid’s injury the previous week, had defensive highlights of his own, forcing two fumbles with strips, one of which he recovered. He now has six forced fumbles this season. His fifth was a strip of running back Dennis Johnson in LSU territory late in the first half. That set up a touchdown drive that put the Tigers ahead to stay.

No. 8 Houston 48, Tulsa 16 TULSA, OKLA. — Case Keenum threw for 457 yards and five touchdowns, Patrick Edwards had 181 yards receiving and four scores, and Houston earned a spot in the Conference USA championship. The Cougars (12-0, 8-0) set a school season record by winning their 12th game. The 12 straight wins also match the school’s longest winning streak, set over the 1990 and ’91 seasons. One more victory in the CUSA championship game on Dec. 3 at home against either Southern Mississippi or Marshall and the Cougars will earn their first BCS bid.

No. 22 Nebraska 20, Iowa 7 LINCOLN, NEB. — Rex Burkhead, who started the week with his right foot in a walking boot, ran for 160 yards and a touchdown on a Nebraska-record 38 carries. Burkhead pounded away at Iowa’s defense four and five yards at a time and looked like his old self after being held to a season-low 36 yards in last week’s loss at Michigan. He had eight carries for 39 yards on a 10-play drive that ended with his two-yard run and a 20-0 lead early in the fourth quarter. The Hawkeyes (7-5, 4-4) avoided getting shut out for the first time in 11 years when Marcus Coker scored on a 2-yard run with 3:26 left. Nebraska (9-3, 5-3) is hoping to land a berth in the Capital One Bowl, if two Big Ten teams are invited to BCS games, or the Outback Bowl.

KANSAS VS. MISSOURI TALE OF THE TAPE When Kansas has the ball Kansas rush offense vs. Missouri rush defense KU’s game plan always features a heavy dose of the run, but the Tigers don’t figure to be accommodating to that idea. MU gives up 141 yards per game to opposing offenses but just 3.8 yards per carry. Although KU has a couple of backs with bigtime talent — James Sims leads the team with 692 yards and 11 touchdowns, and Darrian Miller adds 559 and 4 — the Jayhawks have been inconsistent in the run game all season. Two weeks ago, in an overtime loss against Baylor, KU ran for 296 yards in a near upset. Last week, at Texas A&M, the Jayhawks gained just 64 yards on 55 carries. What once was a guaranteed strength for the Jayhawks has become too hard to predict. Edge: Missouri.

‘In your experience, how do our current generations look differently at faith?’ ——————

In my ministry, I see how much we all have in common The Rev. Peter A. Luckey, senior pastor, Plymouth Congregational Church, 925 Vt.: Yes, indeed, our current generations look differently at faith. Case in point: according to the Pew Research Center, of the generation born between 1981 and 1988, (what Pew calls Generation Next) one in five in that group say they have no religious affiliation. The proportion of young people who feel this way has doubled from the late 1980s. The Barna Group has discovered a significant difference in how people born before 1946 view their faith versus succeeding generations. Faith for the Boomers is, according to the research group, “the foundation of their lives.” Throughout my ministry I have witnessed this group’s

deep sense of loyalty and commitment — not only to their beliefs but also to the institutions that help perpetuate those beliefs. Baby boomers (those born between 1946 and 1964) and even more so, the generations following the “boomers” like Generation Next, tend to see their faith less tied to one group or tradition Luckey and instead view their faith as a work-in-progress, something cobbled together among their own life experiences, the tradition in which they were born into and exposure to other traditions. What I admire about young people today is how they are able to balance a

commitment to their own roots while at the same time able to draw insights from other places. Many in this generation would nod their heads in agreement when the Christian mystic Matthew Fox says, “there are many wells but one river.” Take all these generalizations with a grain of salt. What I find more and more compelling in my ministry is how much we all have in common, no matter if we are 9 or 90. We are all on a search. We all live our lives with fundamental questions like the following: Why am I here? Is there a God and if so, does God care about me? What happens to me after I die? And what am I supposed to make of my life? — Send email to Peter Luckey at peterluckey@sunflower.com.

Send your questions about faith and spiritual issues for our religion columnists to religion@ ljworld.com.

Some stay while others leave, but there is hope for the church Doug Heacock, contemporary worship leader and director of media and communications, Lawrence Free Methodist Church, 3001 Lawrence Ave.: When I was growing up in the 1960s, I scarcely met anyone who was not at least peripherally involved in a church, but as the ’60s gave way to the ’70s, more people rejected the church, along with many other elements of “the Establishment.” This seemed to me to result in a growing group of people who, in the ’80s and ’90s, did not raise their children in the religious traditions in which they were raised. To some extent, I believe the church has also failed to help young believers develop a durable faith. A recent survey (http://bit.ly/aOK4yy) indicates young people are leaving the church at a higher rate than ever before. More and more people are identifying themselves as having “no religion” or even as “ex-Christians.”

Saturday, November 26,2011

While this is cause for justifiable alarm among church leaders, and should be treated as a wake-up call, I believe there are some encouraging signs, as well. More people in my church (and many other churches), for example, are beginning to wake up to the needs of a suffering Heacock world, and are taking seriously the Bible’s mandate to care for the poor. This is appealing to (and could be an avenue for communicating the gospel to) Generation Y — the “millennial” generation, the children of the baby-boomers — because they desire to be engaged in doing something positive for the world. The rise of the Passion movement (268generation. com) among college students suggests that there

are significant numbers of young people who are interested in seeing God be glorified and giving their lives to serve Christ and others. That movement has also helped drive the creation of a great deal of new worship music. The church’s slow-butsteady adoption (and adaptation) of new communications and technology tools and strategies is also helping the church seem less “weird” to the Internet generation. It should be noted that in other parts of the world, the church is growing dramatically — even explosively. The rise of the “leavers” may be a uniquely American thing at this point in history. And we shouldn’t forget that Jesus said he would build his church, and the gates of hell would not prevail against it. There is definitely hope for the church. — Send email to Doug Heacock at doug. heacock@gmail.com.

First Fam, now MU: KU looking at void By Matt Tait mtait@ljworld.com

When Kansas University icon Don Fambrough passed away in September at the age of 88, it left a void in the hearts of thousands of people close to KU. Later today, when the final gun sounds on the 120th playing of the Kansas-Missouri football rivalry at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Mo., the Jayhawks, almost immediately, will have yet another pronounced void to fill. For decades, few things have been as easy to count on as the intensity of the Border War and Fambrough’s raging hatred of the Tigers. With Fambrough no longer here to spit his anti-Mizzou venom and the Tigers ready to head off to the Southeastern Conference, perhaps as

soon as next season, Kansas, and in particular Kansas football, will be forced to move forward without two of its most notable customs. Known for years for delivering his fiery Civil War speech to the KU football team during Missouri Week, Fambrough’s star always shined brightest when the Tigers were in his crosshairs. As a player, from 194647, and again during two stints as KU’s head coach — from 1971-74 and 1979-82 — Fambrough was 6-4 against the Tigers — four losses too many, 4,000 wins too few. “This is his week,” former Fambrough player and current Jayhawk broadcaster David Lawrence said. “That’s when he was called upon by fans and the team.” For those who knew Fambrough, his absence tugs on their heart strings in ways

beyond football. To some he was a father, to others a friend, and still to more a familiar face that brought comfort and a few laughs. That list includes several of KU’s current players. Not all of them were lucky enough to witness one of coach Fam’s Missouri Week speeches, but several did. And they won’t soon forget it. “I remember all the years of him coming in before the Missouri game,” senior AJ Steward said. “He really educated me on the rivalry and put the passion into my heart. I’ve always known about the rivalry, especially growing up in St. Louis, but just to hear his perspective on it made me realize that this is bigger than just a game. It’ll be emotional for a lot of people not having coach Fambrough there, but that should put even more

passion in our hearts to play. He really wants us to win this game, especially since it might be the last time we ever play Missouri.” While this year’s game figures to be overflowing with Fambrough emotions, that will dwindle in time. There always will be those who knew him, or knew his stories, but as the years pass and the gap widens between present day and the last time Fambrough fired up a KU football team, a special part of KU’s rich tradition will be missing. “Fam was the first to say that talk has never been responsible for a game,” Lawrence said. “But I do think that that message he brought did make a difference in some capacity. So, how big a void? It’s just hard for me to say. But it will be a void, there’s no question about that.” Former KU great John

Hadl, who starred at Kansas a decade after Fambrough finished playing, said the responsibility of carrying the torch for KU football, which Fambrough did so well, lands on the shoulders of several Jayhawks past and present. “There’s nobody that’s gonna take Fambrough’s place,” Hadl said. “That’s a one-of-a-kind deal, and people understand that, I’m sure. I don’t know how we’re gonna handle that, but it’s just gonna be a natural happening. I don’t think you can plan that.” While filling Fambrough’s shoes may take time, many Jayhawks said they’re not shedding any tears over what looks to be end of the Border War rivalry. Would they like it to continue? Sure. But will it ever really die? “We’re still gonna be taught the history of what

happened, because it’s history, it’s American history, and we’re gonna be talking about that,” senior offensive lineman Jeff Spikes said, referring to Kansas and Missouri’s ties to the Civil War. “But I think Missouri’s gonna miss out more than Kansas will because they chose to leave. They’re the ones that are gonna give up a big game and give up such a big part of history. To give that up and miss out on the No. 1 rivalry in the country, how can you be the guy that chooses to back out? That makes no sense. I want to continue the rivalry with my brother forever. It makes me upset.” Added Lawrence: “We do need to do what’s best for us, and if it doesn’t include Missouri it’s not gonna hurt my feelings. But it’ll be different. And how we’ll feel about this in five years, I don’t know.”

FORMER KU FOOTBALL COACH DON FAMBROUGH WAS HONORED by former players in 2007 when they presented him with a bench in his name, overlooking Memorial Stadium from near the Campanile. Near the bench is a wreath with a blue ribbon saying “Beloved Coach.” Fambrough — a noted hater of all things Missouri — died in September. Today could mark the end of the rivarly between his Jayhawks and the team he loved to hate, leaving KU fans two marked voids.

Familiar names cook up a storm on Saturday night

JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS For Saturday, Nov. 26: This year you share more easily. You have a great deal of presence. Your creativity emerges, and others respond to you. If you are single, determine the type of tie you want. Then you will know what to do or whom to choose. If you are attached, the caring soars this year. Capricorn might be more fun than you think. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult Aries (March 21-April 19)  Take off for a day trip, or follow through on a yearly event. Break from your routine. Tonight: A must appearance. Taurus (April 20-May 20)  A partner makes an appealing offer. If you don’t accept, you wonder what you are really doing here and why.

They say Saturday nights are where shows go to die. It’s also the night where the stars from deceased shows are most likely to haunt the TV schedule. Names from shows past are well represented in tonight’s TV movies, the kind of films where casting is half the game. Or perhaps the only reason to watch. Just when you think the atmosphere in Washington, D.C., could not get any nastier, along comes “Storm War” (8 p.m. Syfy). Brothers discover that their mad scientist father (Stacy Keach, “Mike Hammer”) has developed a weather weapon that he unleashes on his enemies. And in our nation’s capital, he has no shortage of folks on his bad side. Jason London (“Dazed and Confused”) co-stars in this 2011 shocker.

More familiar faces show up in the feel-good holiday fantasy “Debbie Macomber’s Trading Christmas” (7 p.m. Hallmark). Look for Tom Cavanagh (“Ed”), Faith Ford (“Murphy Brown”) and Gil Bellows (“Ally McBeal”) in this 2011 romantic comedy about a house-sharing misunderstanding involving a professor (Cavanagh) and a widow (Ford).

The voices of Jerry Seinfeld, Renee Zellweger, Matthew Broderick, John Goodman and Chris Rock animate the 2007 comedy “Bee Movie” (8 p.m., NBC).

Scheduled on “48 Hours Mystery” (9 p.m., CBS): butlers, mansions and murder.

“The Graham Norton Show” (9 p.m., BBC America) shows off the best clips of its ninth season.

Melissa McCarthy hosts “Saturday Night Live” (10:30 p.m., NBC), featuring musical guest Lady Antebellum.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  Take a hard look at your budget before you do any purchasing or juggling of finances. You might not be comfortable with the decisions you have to make.

Dear Annie: My husband and I have a small online stock trading account. Several months ago, he mentioned that he was thinking of giving our son and daughter-in-law money to open their own stock account. I immediately told him I was against it. I then left to go to the store and thought that was the end of it. When I arrived home, I found my husband signing a check for $25,000 to our daughter-in-law. We have no agreement that the money will be repaid or that we will be informed as to what happens to it. If I hadn’t returned home when I did, I never even would have known about it. My husband doesn’t think he did anything wrong. How am I supposed to trust or respect him when he does things like this? Am I justified to feel resentful and betrayed? — Floored Dear Floored: Your husband should not be making unilateral decisions that affect both of you. But by telling him “no” and assuming the matter was settled, you did the same thing. It sounds like this is not so much about the money as it is about who controls it. Giving a large sum to anyone, including a child, requires the cooperation and agreement of all involved parties.

Occupy L.A. stands out for cooperation By Christina Hoag Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — When Occupy LA demonstrators recently proclaimed a downtown intersection “our street,” police watched as annoyed drivers honked horns and tried to maneuver around gyrating protesters. Officers only moved in after the third intersection takeover — telling protesters they had to quit or face arrest. The activists turned around and marched back to camp chanting slogans. That hasn’t happened in some other cities and may not have been possible in Los Angeles that long ago. Occupy LA, a 485-tent camp surrounding City Hall, has marched to a different beat in its drum circle after protesters, police and city officials established a relationship based on dialogues instead of dictates. As camps in other cities degenerated into unrest that

led to mass arrests, Occupy LA has remained largely a peaceful commune. Police arrive on site only when called in to investigate petty crimes. Marches have resulted in only about five spontaneous arrests — the other 70 or so involved protesters who deliberately got arrested to make a political statement. City leaders are now hoping that peace can withstand what could be its biggest test. The city has given campers a 12:01 a.m. Monday to clear out of the park, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa said at a Friday afternoon news conference. “We’ve decided to do things differently here in Los Angeles. We’ve not stared each other down across barricades and barbed wire,” the mayor said at the City Hall news conference. “From the start we’ve talked to one another and we’ve listened to each other. I trust that we can manage the closure of City Hall Park in the same spirit of cooperation.”

The announcement and the advance warning stand in stark contrast to middle-ofthe-night police raids used in other cities. “Los Angeles has had a real history of heavy-handed tactics with police,” said Richard Weinblatt, a police procedures expert and former police chief. “They’re taking a very good approach with this. It’s a good political sign.” The hands-off strategy perhaps underscores the liberal leanings of a city that has often been known for counterculture movements. But it marks a departure for a police force still striving to emerge from the shadow of the 1991 beating of Rodney King, the Rampart corruption scandal of the late ’90s, and more recently, the 2007 crackdown at an immigrants rights rally in which demonstrators and reporters were injured with batons and rubber bullets. This time, even before the first tent was set up on the City

Motives of foreign student recruiters questioned By Alan Scher Zagier Associated Press

COLUMBIA, MO. — As American universities welcome ever-greater numbers of international students, some professors and admissions counselors are questioning the motives of the very professionals who have helped attract so many foreign scholars to their campuses. Higher education recruiters are under fire from detractors who say they put profit ahead of students’ best interests. Critics accuse them of sending thousands of unqualified applicants to the U.S. every year, sometimes allowing students to skip basic English tests and falsify applications to make a quick commission. “The student is best served by having the widest range of information available about what might be the best fit,” said Peggy Blumenthal, an executive vice president at the not-for-profit Institute of International Education, which monitors and promotes study abroad programs. Recruiting agents “have a very large incentive to deliver a student who may not be the best fit.” A leading group of admissions counselors even proposed an outright ban on the use of international recruiters who are paid based on the number of students they lure

Hall lawn, Jim Lafferty, a lawyer who has been representing Occupy LA, said Police Chief Charlie Beck assured him protesters would be left alone if they remained peaceful. Beck promised no surprise raids would be carried out, said Lafferty, executive director of the National Lawyers Guild’s Los Angeles chapter. Elected city leaders initially embraced the campers. Villaraigosa handed out plastic ponchos one rainy day. The City Council passed a resolution to support Occupy LA. Officials found an alternate site for a farmers market that the camp displaced. Protesters have done their part to cooperate. They’ve readily complied with health inspectors’ demands for more portable toilets, trash pickup and food sanitation. They’ve also worked to tamp down anarchist inciters in the camp who want to provoke authorities, as well as activists with hot tempers.

WASHINGTON — Large and small companies have told Republican-led congressional committees what the party wants to hear: dire predictions of plant closings and layoffs if the Obama administration succeeds with plans to further curb air and water pollution. But their message to financial regulators and investors conveys less gloom and certainty. The administration itself has clouded the picture by withdrawing or postponing some of the environmental initiatives that industry labeled as being among the most onerous. Still, Republicans plan to make what they say is regulatory overreach a 2012 campaign issue, taking aim at President Barack Obama, congressional Democrats and an aggressive Environmental Protection Agency. “Republicans will be talking to voters this campaign season about how to keep Washington out of the way, so that job creators can feel confident again to create jobs for Americans,” said Joanna Burgos, a spokeswoman for the House Republican campaign organization. The Associated Press compared the companies’ congressional testimony to company reports submitted to the Securities and Exchange Commission. The reports to the SEC consistently said the impact of environmental proposals is unknown or would not cause serious financial harm to a firm’s finances. Companies can legitimately argue that their less gloomy SEC filings are correct, since most of the tougher anti-pollution proposals have not been finalized. And

their officials’ testimony before congressional committees was sometimes on behalf of — and written by — trade associations, a perspective that can differ from an individual company’s view. But the disparity in the messages shows that in a political environment, business has no misgivings about describing potential economic horror stories to lawmakers. “As an industry, we have said this before, we face a potential regulatory train wreck,” Anthony Earley Jr., then the executive chairman of DTE Energy in Michigan, told a House committee on April 15. “Without the right policy, we could be headed for disaster.” The severe economic consequences, he said, would be devastating to the electric utility’s customers, especially Detroit residents who “simply cannot afford” higher rates. Earley, who is now chairman and CEO of Pacific Gas & Electric Corp., said if the EPA had its way, coal-fired plants would be replaced with natural gas — leading to a spike in gas prices. He said he was testifying for the electric industry, not just his company. But in its quarterly report to the SEC, Detroit-based DTE, which serves 3 million utility customers in Michigan, said that it was “reviewing potential impacts of the proposed and recently finalized rules, but is not able to quantify the financial impact ... at this time.” Skiles Boyd, a DTE vice president for environmental issues, said in an interview that the testimony was meant to convey the potential economic hardship on ratepayers — while the SEC report focused on the company’s financial condition. “It’s two different subjects,” he said.

to the United States. College administrators who rely on recruiters are quick to defend them, saying they are more familiar with overseas customs and school systems. By using recruiters, Missouri State University leaders “can focus on developing and delivering curriculum instead of going out and recruiting students and developing individual sponsors,” said David Meinert, associate dean of the university’s business school. Recruiters are “able to deliver as an intermediary something that we would have trouble delivering.” Those efforts have contributed significantly to a sharp spike in the number of foreign students seeking an American education. A recent report by Blumenthal’s institute showed a 32 percent increase in the number of international students in the U.S. compared with a decade ago. Nearly a quarter of the students here for the 201011 academic year came from China. Many others hailed from India and South Korea. When Missouri State’s Springfield campus decided in 2007 to create an executive M.B.A. program for visiting Chinese students, the school realized it needed a recruiter steeped in that country’s language, culture and educational practices.

The university hired the International Management Education Center in Hong Kong under a deal that paid recruiters $10,000 to $12,000 for each graduate student. The school kept the balance of student payments ranging from $15,000 to $22,000. But some professors question the program’s academic rigor, noting participants do not take the English proficiency tests usually required of international students and frequently show up unprepared. When the same doubts that arose in Missouri spread to China, some student sponsors — a term that refers to local governments, schools corporations and other Chinese institutions — said they wanted to withdraw from the program. Earlier this year, the National Association for College Admission Counseling proposed the ban on the use of some international recruiters out of concern that unscrupulous agents were exaggerating students’ English skills and submitting falsified applications in search of a fast financial reward. Those practices introduce “an incentive for recruiters to ignore the student interest” and invite “complications involving misrepresentation, conflict of interest and fraud,” the organization’s board said in a May statement.

!"A public sector strike in Britain next week threatens to paralyze operations at Heathrow, Europe’s busiest airport. BAA, the airport’s operator, said Friday 12-hour delays for arriving passengers are likely because the Nov. 30 strike will hit the U.K. Border Agency’s ability to support normal operations. An estimated 2 million workers are expected to protest changes in public sector pensions with a 24-hour walkout — billed as potentially the biggest union action since 1979. The lines at Heathrow’s immigration counters are expected to be so long that passengers will need to be held on planes, BAA warned.

Airlines cut small jets as fuel prices soar

By Joshua Freed Associated Press

MINNEAPOLIS — The little planes that connect America’s small cities to the rest of the world are slowly being phased out. Airlines are getting rid of these planes — their least-efficient — in response to the high cost of fuel. Delta, United Continental, and other big airlines are expected to park, scrap or sell hundreds of jets with 50 seats or fewer in coming years. Small propeller planes are meeting the same fate. The loss of those planes is leaving some little cities with fewer flights or no flights at all. The Airports Council International says 27 small airports in the continental U.S., including St. Cloud, Minn., and Oxnard, Calif., have lost service from well-known commercial airlines over the last two years. More shutdowns are planned. Travelers in cities that have lost service now must drive or take buses to larger airports. That adds time and stress to travel. St. Cloud lost air service at the end of 2009 after Delta eliminated flights on 34-seat turboprops. Now, passengers from the city of 66,000 have a 90-minute drive to the Minneapolis airport 65 miles to the southeast. Roger Geraets, who works for an online education company based near St. Cloud., flies at least twice a month from Minneapolis. He used

to connect from St. Cloud. Now he drives, leaving an extra half hour for bad traffic. There are other headaches. Parking at St. Cloud was free, but in Minneapolis it costs $14 per day. And getting through airport security in Minneapolis takes longer. In the late 1990s, when jet fuel cost one-fourth of today’s prices, the small jets and turboprops were a profitable way for airlines to connect people in small cities to the rest in the world. The flights attracted business travelers who tended to pay more for tickets. Airlines loved the planes. Bombardier and Embraer sold more than 1,900 50-seat jets during the late 1990s and early 2000s. “We all got carried away with it,” says Glen W. Hauenstein, Delta’s executive vice president for network planning, revenue management and marketing. Then jet fuel prices soared. They’re at $3.16 per gallon today, up from 78 cents in 2000. That’s changed the economics of small planes. For airlines, it all comes down to spreading fuel costs among passengers. A Delta 50-seat CRJ-200 made by Bombardier takes 19 gallons of fuel to fly each passenger 500 miles. Fuel usage drops to just 7.5 gallons per passenger on Delta’s 160-seat MD90s over the same distance. So while the bigger jet burns more fuel overall, it’s more efficient.
