justice programs to the Kansas Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services. The action by the House-Senate Committee on Corrections and Juvenile Justice came after law enforcement and juvenile experts said the plan by Brown-

back, a Republican, would harm programs that are helping young people and keeping the public safe. They also said it was proposed without any input from experts in the field. The committee’s meeting produced testy exchanges be-

tween legislators and Brownback’s point man on the issue, SRS Secretary Robert Siedlecki Jr. Several community and law enforcement officials said they were stunned when they learned earlier this month that

Brownback planned to issue an executive order to move several major programs out of the Juvenile Justice Authority and place them under SRS. They said the programs, such Please see SRS, page 2A Siedlecki

TOPEKA — Westar Energy on Tuesday said it needed a $91 million rate increase to provide reliable service, but several customers said the state’s largest electric utility needed to economize. James Peek of Topeka complained about executive salaries at Westar, saying, “I see only loosening of the belt.” He noted that former Westar president and chief executive officer William Moore’s compensation package was about $1 million in 2008 and increased to nearly $6 million in 2010. Later, Westar officials said much of that was due to Moore receiving a stock award over a threeyear period that was reported in 2010. Even so, David Springe, consumer counsel for the Citizens’ Utility Ratepayer Board, said, “It’s good to be a Westar executive.” Their comments came during a public hearing before the Kansas Corporation Commission, which will decide how much Westar should get. The three-member commission is holding a second hearing today in Wichita. An evidentiary hearing will be held in February. The commission must rule in the case by late April. If approved by the KCC, the proposal would increase residential customers’ bills by about $6.50, or 5.85 percent, per month and give Westar shareholders a 10.6 percent return on equity. Freda Dobbins of the small town of Goff in Nemaha County said her church struggled last summer to pay its utility bill. She opposed the part of Westar’s proposal that would provide a 10.6 percent return on equity. Dobbins said people who are able to save money are lucky to get a 1 percent or 2 percent return. “Why are people being asked to use that little bit of income to help pay 10.6 percent?” she asked. Greg Greenwood, a senior vice president at Westar, said, “This case is really about providing reliable service to our customers.”

MEGAN KING, PARENT OF A SIXTH-GRADER AT SOUTHWEST MIDDLE SCHOOL who helped organize a petition opposing standards-based grading, expresses her frustration with the Lawrence school district’s computer system used by teachers and accessible by parents for tracking students’ progress. She was among 70 parents, teachers, administrators, school board members and others attending a “Grading for Learning” informational forum Tuesday at Southwest.

Opponents dispute board president’s claim that ‘nothing has changed’ By Mark Fagan

Parents concerned about the use of standardsbased grading in Lawrence middle schools took their questions, concerns and frustrations directly to the folks in charge Tuesday night. Now the opponents are looking for changes, with many seeking a system based solely on traditional letter grades in sixth grade rather than the combination retained for use this academic year. “The two don’t mesh,” said Megan King, who had draped a “Stop Standards Based Grading” banner on her back fence facing Inverness Drive, a major route to nearby Southwest Middle School. “They’re different playing fields. One is totally different

than the other, and one cannot be layered on top of the other.” King joined more than 70 parents, teachers, administrators, school board members and others attending a “Grading for Learning” informational forum Tuesday in the cafeteria at Southwest, 2411 Inverness Drive. A second forum will be conducted from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. today at Liberty Memorial Central Middle School, 1400 Mass. District officials scheduled the forums after facing criticism from dozens of parents during two separate board meetings, then addressing several small groups at various schools and receiving more than 200 signatures on an online petition calling for standards-based

and Douglas County residents have been doing a stellar job of pulling themselves out of poverty lately. The problem is, several social service providers say they don’t believe the U.S. Census Bureau. The bureau on Tuesday released figures estimating that about 23,000 Douglas County residents were

below the federal poverty level in 2009, a rate of 21.7 percent, which was the second highest of any county in Kansas. But then in 2010, the number of people in poverty dropped to about 16,000 people, a rate of 15.6 percent. In other words, there are

about 7,000 fewer people in poverty in Douglas County, despite an economy that continues to sputter. To some social service providers, those numbers don’t make sense. “I haven’t seen an improvement. What I’ve seen

are more people,” said Linda Lassen, program director at Penn House, which provides utility, food and clothing assistance to those in need. “I’m guessing that 20 percent of the people we’re helping are people we haven’t seen before. That is a big increase for us.” Douglas County’s drop in the poverty rate runs counter to what has happened statewide. The poverty rate in Kansas rose to 13.5 percent in 2010, up from 13.2 percent in 2009. Compared with 2007 — before the re-

cession — the rate is up by about 2 percent. The rate for children living in poverty has increased even more sharply during the time period. The Census Bureau estimates 22.1 percent of all Kansas children 0 to 4 years old were in poverty in 2010. That’s up from 17.9 percent in 2007. A spokesman with the Census Bureau said he wasn’t able to explain the large drop in the Douglas County numbers, but he said the sampling methods Please see POVERTY, page 2A

Greenwood argued that some of the increase was needed to provide fair wages to Westar employees. But Peek said that in the current economy, there were many people who were not getting pay raises. Springe noted that even though Westar had not received a general rate increase since 2008, it had received several pass-through increases totaling about $120 million. He urged ratepayers in the audience to contact their friends to try to get more people to comment on the proposed rate increase to the KCC. Only about a dozen members of the general public were at the Topeka meeting, and a handful could be seen at remote sites in Salina and Pittsburg that were connected by video conference.

Public comments on the proposed rate increase can be made through Feb. 8.

year, except that sixthgraders now are in middle schools, where they are taking more classes and with different teachers. Sixthgraders still receive standards-based grades — “S” for successfully meeting standards, “M” for making progress, “T” for being targeted for growth and “E” for excelling consistently — and still receive a letter grade in each subject area. “Nothing has changed,” said Mark Bradford, school board president, during the forum. “That’s illogical, to say that nothing’s changed,” said Steve Patton, who has a sixthgrader at Southwest and has criticized the grading system during previous board meetings. “Everything’s changed. The buildings changed. The teachers have changed. The time to teach has changed. The way the school is conducted has changed. “Everything has changed.” Whether the grading system itself will change will be up to board members, who have agreed to consider the issue during an upcoming board meeting, likely in December or January. District administrators maintain that standardsbased grades give parents more information about a student’s knowledge and learner behaviors than a traditional letter grade can.

Possible problems Opponents argue that standards-based grades lead to several problems:

Teachers don’t have enough time to properly issue such grades.


used in 2009 may have been flawed and produced a number that was too high. “It looks like there may be some statistical uncertainty with the 2009 level,” said Wes Basel, a branch chief with the Census Bureau. But if the 2009 levels are the ones in error, that suggests an interesting conclusion too. If the 2010 numbers are correct, Douglas County’s poverty rate is virtually unchanged from the levels prior to the recession. The county had a poverty rate of 15.4 percent in 2007 versus 15.6 percent in 2010. Other numbers from Tuesday’s report include:


as intake and assessment of juvenile offenders and prevention grants, were working fine and SRS was ill-equipped to handle them. The plan was part of an agency reorganization included in Brownback’s Medicaid overhaul. Two weeks after the plan was announced on Nov. 8, Siedlecki and Juvenile Justice Authority Commissioner Curtis Whitten invited stakeholders to a Dec. 12 meeting “to discuss this exciting opportunity , as well as, the challenges involved with the transition.” “This sounds like ready, fire, aim,” Committee Chairwoman Pat Colloton, RLeawood, told Siedlecki. Colloton and several other committee members said Siedlecki should have sought input and information from those working in the field before making the proposal. Siedlecki said the reorganization was needed to bring

An “S” grade does not offer proper motivation for kids, especially those who could strive to go from a B to an A. “The ‘S’ doesn’t give us any information,” said Scott Myers, a Southwest parent who compiled the online petition.

Issuing two sets of grades is confusing, both for parents and students.

The Skyward computer system used by teachers and accessible to parents — all to help track students’ assignments, test scores and other work — isn’t properly equipped to effectively communicate what parents need to know to help their students succeed. Administrators already have responded to some of the concerns by granting teachers more time to issue standards-based grades, and by reducing — with teacher input — the number of mandatory standards to be graded for each report card. The district also has adjusted information on Skyward and has convened committees of teachers from each of the district’s four middle schools to work on ways to make improvements both for teachers and parents. After the forum, board member Rick Ingram said that he would consider including parents on such committees or other committees related to standards-based grading. “These are legitimate concerns, and there is a lot of

common ground,” said Ingram, who attended the forum along with all of the other board members except Randy Masten, who plans to attend tonight’s session at Liberty Memorial Central. “These parents are involved, and they really care. These are the people you want to have participating on a committee.” Several board members noted that many of the concerns raised Tuesday night by parents — who want better communication, more consistency and increased student motivation — could be applied to both standardsbased grades and traditional letter grades. “What we’re really talking about are the details,” said Vanessa Sanburn, another board member. Bradford said that the board soon would decide whether to continue with the combination of standards-based grading and traditional letter grades for sixth-graders or to drop the standards-based marks at that level and rely instead only on traditional A, B, C, D and F grades going forward. Once it’s decided, he said, that will be it: Teachers must utilize whatever system is in place, even as people continue to work on improvements. “We have to move on,” he said. — Schools reporter Mark Fagan can be reached at 832-7188.

 Douglas County in 2010 had the 23rd highest poverty rate in the state. In 2009, it had the second highest rate in the state.

 2010 poverty rates for other counties of interest included Leavenworth, 9.4 percent; Franklin County, 11.6 percent; Osage County, 12.1 percent; Sedgwick County, 15.3 percent; Shawnee County, 17.5 percent.

The actual poverty level varies based on the size of a household.

all children and family issues under one agency. He said several other states had done this. He said the current system is working well but added, “I think we can do better.” But several legislators said Siedlecki had no details on how the system would perform better under SRS. “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” said Sen. Tim Owens, R-Overland Park. Speaking to Siedlecki, who came from Florida last year to work in the Brownback administration, Owens said it was offensive that people have not bothered to learn what is going on in Kansas before trying to change things. Siedlecki shot back that he has bought a home in Kansas and is paying taxes here. “I prefer you call me a Kansan,” he said. The meeting room was packed with people who were upset with the Brownback proposal. Many noted that the current juvenile justice system was developed in the late 1990s when it was taken away from SRS because of failings in that agency. Betsy Gillespie, director of

the Johnson County Corrections, has worked in the field for 37 years. She asked, “Why would we disrupt the current system when it has changed so much for the better?” Ed Klump, representing three law enforcement associations, said the current system allows for local oversight and development in each area of the state. Mark Masterson, director of the Sedgwick County Department of Corrections, and Stuart Little, with the Kansas Community Corrections Association, also spoke against the proposal. Sen. Dick Kelsey, R-Goddard, made a motion recommending that Brownback, at this time, not issue an executive order reorganizing the agencies and programs until more research is done. “This whole thing hasn’t been vetted enough,” Kelsey said. The committee approved the recommendation on a voice vote. Only Rep. Jana Goodman, R-Leavenworth, voted against the motion.

Child molester gets 11.5 years in prison

Protesters storm British Embassy

By George Diepenbrock

Hard-line Iranian protesters stormed British diplomatic compounds Tuesday, hauling down the Union Jack, torching an embassy vehicle and pelting buildings with petrol bombs in what began as an apparent state-approved show of anger over the latest Western sanctions to punish Tehran for defiance over its nuclear program. The hours-long assault on the British Embassy and a residential complex for staff — in chaotic scenes reminiscent of the seizing of the U.S. Embassy in 1979 — could push already frayed diplomatic ties toward the breaking point. Iran’s parliament approved a bill Sunday to downgrade relations with Britain, one of America’s closest allies with diplomatic envoys in the Islamic Republic. Calling Tuesday’s attack “outrageous and indefensible,” British Prime Minister David Cameron said that Iran’s failure to defend the embassy and its staff was a disgrace and would have “serious consequences.”

A Douglas County judge on Tuesday sentenced a 46-yearold Edgerton man to serve 11.5 years in prison for molesting two girls, ages 5 and 6, east of Baldwin City in 2010. District Judge Peggy Kittel followed terms of a plea agreement and spared Scott James Bivins a possible life sentence but still ordered him to be subject to lifetime supervision on parole, including electronic monitoring. “I think this is a good outcome for you based on the evidence I’ve heard, so I hope that you take advantage of this opportu-

nity,” Kittel told Bivins in court. Bivins in August pleaded guilty to two counts of aggravated indecent liberties with a child, one for Bivins each victim. The mother of the 6-year-old girl testified in April that she saw her daughter touching Bivins in the groin area in her family’s backyard last year. The 5-year-old girl is the daughter of the woman’s boyfriend, who knew Bivins. Sheriff’s officers also testified that the two girls told them Bivins would molest them when

he came to their house, which is east of Baldwin City in southeastern Douglas County. But defense attorney Joseph Dioszeghy said the two sides reached the plea agreement based on a sex offender evaluation that revealed Bivins was sexually abused as a boy, which influenced his maturity and likely came into play in this case. “He didn’t seem to prey on them,” Dioszeghy said. “It appeared that the bad acts occurred while in the process of having innocent fun.” The defense attorney said the evaluator found Bivins was a moderate risk to re-offend but that he would be amenable to receiving treatment.

Amy McGowan, a chief assistant district attorney, said parents of the victims agreed with the plea agreement, mostly because the victims would not have to testify at a potential trial. Bivins has already spent 10 months in jail, and he could receive credit for about 20 months off his sentence for good behavior in prison. “You can get this behind you and come out and be at a better place than you are now,” Kittel told Bivins, “so good luck to you.” “I’ll do the best I can,” he said. “Thank you.” — Reporter George Diepenbrock can be reached at 832-7144.

Killer found insane, unfit for prison Confessed mass killer Anders Behring Breivik belongs in psychiatric care instead of prison, Norwegian prosecutors said Tuesday after a mental evaluation declared him legally insane during a bomb-and-shooting rampage that killed 77 people. The court-ordered assessment found that the self-styled anti-Muslim militant was psychotic during the July 22 attacks, which would make him Breivik mentally unfit to be convicted and imprisoned for the country’s worst peacetime massacre. The report, written by two psychiatrists who spent 36 hours talking to Breivik, will be reviewed by an expert panel before the Oslo district court rules on his mental state. 3 | LOS ANGELES

Jackson’s doctor gets 4-year sentence It was clear that Michael Jackson’s doctor was going to get the maximum four-year sentence for involuntary manslaughter before the judge even finished speaking. In a nearly half-hour tongue lashing, Dr. Conrad Murray was denounced as a greedy, remorseless physician who committed a “horrific violation of trust” and killed the King of Pop during an experiment. “Dr. Murray created a set of circumstances and became involved in a cycle of horrible medicine,” Judge Michael Pastor said in a stern voice. Pastor said Murray sold out his profession for a promised fee of $150,000 a month when he agreed to give Jackson a powerful anesthetic every night as an unorthodox cure for insomnia. Murray will likely serve less than two years in county jail, not state prison, because of California’s overcrowded prisons and jails. Sheriff’s officials said he will be housed in a one-man cell and be kept away from other inmates. 3 | LOS ANGELES

Vet visits pricey for many pet owners Vet visits cost pet owners an average of $505 dollars last year, according to a new poll, with those whose pets faced serious illness spending more than $1,000 on average. Eight in 10 pet owners took their animal companion to a veterinarian in the past 12 months. And cost was an obstacle for a third of those who did not visit the vet. But most pet owners trust that vets are not suggesting unnecessary treatments, and the bulk of pet owners faced costs below the average. Sixty percent of those who did take a pet to the vet spent $300 or less on their animal’s care, the average expenditure was boosted higher by the one in eight (13 percent) who spent $1,000 or more. About one in six pet owners say their pet faced a serious illness during the year, and those pet owners spent an average of $1,092 on vet care. One percent say they took their pets to the vet and spent no money.

Police took a 22-year-old Lawrence man into custody Tuesday night after a nearly two-hour standoff outside a mobile home in the 3300 block of Iowa Street. The man in custody is alleged to have threatened a police officer with a gun. Lawrence Police Department officers surrounded the trailer at approximately 7:30 p.m. Police officers on the scene told police dispatchers they saw a woman wearing a pink shirt inside the trailer with the man. They heard her screaming, telling the man not to do something. Shortly after 8 p.m., a police officer

told dispatchers that the woman had come out of the residence unharmed. The man was taken into custody shortly before 9:30 p.m., according to Sgt. Matt Sarna, a Lawrence police spokesman. He said the incident had stemmed from a domestic disturbance from inside the home earlier in the night. Sarna said no one was injured. The man is being held on suspicion of domestic battery and aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer. The Journal-World generally does not name suspects unless they are formally charged. — Reporter Aaron Couch can be reached at 832-7217. — Reporter George Diepenbrock contributed to this report.

State warns Medicare recipients of scams By Christine Metz

As the deadline approaches for picking a Medicare Part D prescription drug plan, Medicare recipients are reminded to protect their medical billing information like they would their bank accounts. The Kansas Department on Aging’s Senior Medicare Patrol has received reports that Medicare beneficiaries are receiving phone calls from people offering free diabetic supplies. According to reports, the caller tells the Medicare recipient that all the company needs to send the free supplies is the person’s Medicare number. The scammer then bills Medicare for the diabetic supplies through several companies. And sometimes the Medicare number is sold to other scammers, who also bill Medicare for services. In the end, Medicare picks up the tab for the scam. “It is certainly something we have seen an increase of in the last couple of years. It’s not anything new,” said Sara Arif, spokeswoman for the Kansas Department of Aging. Arif urged Medicare clients to review their Medicare statements carefully and to

report any suspicious activity or unusual charges. Here are tips to protect Medicare information:

Treat your Medicare info as you would your credit card or bank account information. Don’t give it out to anyone you don’t completely trust.

Medicare and Medicaid don’t sell or endorse any products. If someone calls or visits your home on behalf of Medicare or Medicaid, they are lying and cannot be trusted. Hang up the phone or shut the door.

Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security and banks will not call you by phone and ask for your account number. They already have your information.

Be suspicious of anyone offering “free” medical services.

If you suspect Medicare or Medicaid fraud, errors, abuse or scams, contact the Kansas Department of Aging Senior Medicare Patrol hotline at 1-800-860-5260.

Douglas County Senior Services offers help for those navigating through choosing Medicare Part D plans. For more information, call 8420543.

K-10 crash victim who had been in coma dies By George Diepenbrock

A 45-year-old Missouri man died Monday after he was injured in January in a crash on Kansas Highway 10 near De Soto, according to a Kansas City, Kan., funeral home. Barry L. Clemons, of Raytown, was injured Jan. 6 when his westbound pickup was struck by a trailer that had come loose from an eastbound vehicle near Lexington Avenue. The Kansas Highway Patrol the day after the accident warned drivers to make sure trailers were secured to their vehicles, and troopers had said they expected to ticket the driver of the eastbound pickup, Jerold D. Evans, of Lawrence, for failing to secure a load. Relatives said Clemons had been in a coma since the accident. Services are scheduled for noon Thursday at Holmeswood Baptist Church in Kansas City, Mo. According to news reports, Clemons was a longtime minister who conducted — Reporter Christine Metz can be reached weddings in the Kansas City at 832-6352. area.

Man suspected of attempted murder By George Diepenbrock

A 39-year-old Lawrence man was arrested Tuesday night on suspicion of attempted first-degree murder after a woman was stabbed at a northern Lawrence residence. Lawrence Police Sgt. Matt Sarna, a police spokesman, said officers just before 3:30 p.m. were called to a home in the 500 block of John Doy Court when they discovered the woman suffered apparent stab wounds. “She was transported in serious condition by ground ambulance to a Topeka-area

hospital,” Sarna said Tuesday afternoon. The suspect was at the residence before he was taken from the scene by officers. Witnesses reported he was taken away in handcuffs. Douglas County Sheriff’s Office records list the man’s address as where the incident occurred. “Nobody else was at residence at the time that we are aware of,” Sarna said. “Detectives are investigating it at this time.” The 500 block of John Doy Court is east of Kasold Drive and Peterson Road. Medics at the scene told dispatchers the victim was


Lawrence police the day after the initial incident said they believed three suspects were involved and that they took from the home a safe and an undetermined amount of money inside it. Assistant district attorney Eve Kemple said Tuesday authorities have not yet identified the third suspect. Lawrence police arrested Jackson and Words after an almost three-year investigation in the case. Words is free on $50,000 bond, and Jackson is still in Douglas County Jail.

Kansas Department of Transportation leaders earlier this month approved a plan for next summer to place cable median barriers along two two-mile stretches of K-10 near Eudora and the junction with Kansas Highway 7 in Johnson County.

School finance forum set for next week



fiscal issues that could affect school funding, which makes up about half of the state budget. It supports elimination of the state income tax and a 401(k)-style plan for new state employees to replace the current pension system. School finance is sure to be one of the top issues of the 2012 legislative session that starts in January. Gov. Sam Brownback has said he will propose an overhaul of the school finance system. But based on preliminary discussions on that proposal, some school advocates say it will increase the funding burden on local school districts. At the forum, Tallman and Trabert will both make presentations and then take questions from the audience.

A dedication ceremony for a $1.5 million project at the Santa Fe Depot in east Lawrence is set for Saturday. Depot Redux, a group of residents who volunteer at the depot, will host an event to dedicate the new outdoor boarding platform. The project was funded through federal dollars awarded to Amtrak, which uses the station for two trains that travel through Lawrence daily. The platform project is the largest investment yet in the 1950s-era depot, which Depot Redux members hope the city will take over as a restoration project. The dedication ceremony is set for 2 p.m. Saturday at the depot, 413 E. Seventh St. Speakers are scheduled to include: Mayor Aron Cromwell; state Sen. Marci Francisco, D-Lawrence; Marc Magliari of Amtrak; and representatives from Krische Construction and Burlington Northern Santa Fe.

Greece gets $10.7 billion, but rescue plan stalls By Raf Casert Associated Press

BRUSSELS — Eurozone ministers sent Greece an 8 billion euro, or $10.7 billion, Christmas rescue package Tuesday to stem an immediate cash crisis yet failed to resolve fears that the common euro currency might be doomed. Stock markets around the world rose earlier in the day, hoping that intense pressure from the bond markets would finally force the 17-nation eurozone into quicker and more robust action. But even as Italy’s borrowing costs skyrocketed to a euro-era record, the 17 finance ministers only found a veneer of credibility to coat the euro’s rescue fund with more leverage. They failed to increase the bailout fund to match earlier predictions and kicked other major financial issues — like a closer fiscal union — over to their bosses, the EU leaders meeting next week in Brussels. The ministers did agree to use the fund to offer financial protection of 20 to 30 percent to investors who bought new bonds of troubled eurozone nations, an effort to help those countries get back to borrowing on global markets again. “We made important progress on a number of fronts,” Jean-Claude Juncker, the euro-

GREEK FINANCE MINISTER EVANGELOS VENIZELOS, LEFT, shakes hands with Italian Prime Minister and Finance Minister Mario Monti during a roundtable meeting of the eurogroup Tuesday at the EU Council building in Brussels. The 17 finance ministers of countries that use the euro converged on EU headquarters Tuesday in a desperate bid to save their currency and to protect Europe, the United States, Asia and the rest of the global economy from a debt-induced financial tsunami. zone chief, insisted late Tuesday. “This shows our complete determination to do whatever it takes to safeguard the financial stability of the euro.” EU Monetary Chief Olli Rehn said eurozone nations needed to work on many financial issues at once to ease global pressure on their currency. “There is no one single silver bullet that will get us out of this crisis,” Rehn told reporters.

But the question of how to beef up the leverage capacity of European Financial Stability Facility from its current 440 billion euros, or $587 billion, to a hoped-for 1 trillion euros, or $1.3 trillion, was not resolved. The fund is supposed to be a firewall that protects European nations from the financial chaos of their neighbors. Fund chief Klaus Regling remained vague on how beefed up it was after Tues-

day’s meeting in Brussels, but assured reporters it was more than big enough to deal with Europe’s immediate financial debt problems. “To be clear, we do not expect investors to commit large amounts of money during the next few days or weeks,” Regling said. “Leverage is a process over time.” Dutch Finance Minister Jan Kees de Jager said investors had appeared less eager than originally anticipated. “It will be very difficult to reach something in the region of a trillion. Maybe half of that,” he said. Italy remained an enormous concern. Carrying five times as much debt as Greece, Italy was battered for the third straight day in the bond markets, seeing its borrowing rates soar to unsustainable levels of 7.56 percent. Investors appear increasingly wary of the country’s chances of avoiding default — and making matters worse, the eurozone’s third largest economy is deemed too big for Europe to bail out. The ministers still insisted Italy’s new prime minister would come through, saying he has promised to balance Italy’s budget by 2013. “We have full confidence that Mario Monti will be able to deliver this program,” Juncker said.


Senate rejects effort to strip detainee provision By Donna Cassata Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The Senate on Tuesday rejected an effort to strip divisive provisions from a defense bill that deal with the capture and handling of suspected terrorists, setting up a showdown with the White House. The resounding 60-38 vote sent a strong message to the Obama administration, which has threatened a veto of the bill over the requirement of military custody for captured terror suspects and limitations on the ability to transfer detainees from the naval prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. The clash underscores the ongoing dispute between the executive branch and some in Congress over whether to treat suspected terrorists as prisoners of war or criminals. It also exposed deep divisions within Senate Democratic ranks. “The provisions would dramatically change broad counterterrorism efforts by

requiring law enforcement officials to step aside and ask the Department of Defense to take on a new role they are not fully equipped for and do not want,” said Sen. Mark Udall, D-Colo., who added that the legislation would make the military “police, judge and jailer.” His amendment would have taken out the sections on detainees and instead called for congressional hearings with Pentagon and administration officials on the issue. Defending the provisions, Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman Carl Levin argued that they contain a national security waiver for the administration. The issue has pitted Levin against other senior Democratic senators, including the chairmen of the Intelligence and Judiciary committees. The bill would require military custody of a suspect deemed to be a member of al-Qaida or its affiliates and involved in plotting or committing attacks on the United States.

After hiking taxes, Ill. now considers easing them By Christopher Wills Associated Press

SPRINGFIELD, ILL. — What a state takes away, it also can give back. Less than a year after raising personal and corporate income taxes, Illinois officials are pushing a $250 million package of tax breaks for several prominent businesses threatening to leave the state, including Sears and the Chicago Mercantile Exchange. To make the measure more palatable, individual taxpayers also

would get a dollop of relief. The measure suffered a setback Tuesday when the House rejected it, but legislative leaders said they were determined to reach a deal in the coming days or weeks. The idea of giving tax breaks to companies is a hard sell in the state Legislature when many families are struggling and the Occupy Wall Street movement is reflecting anger at corporate interests. But advocates say if Illinois doesn’t take action, the businesses and their thousands of jobs will be

lured away by states that are eager to take advantage. “If we don’t do it, another state will. That’s the reality of the world in which we live,” said Rep. John Bradley, a Marion Democrat who is chairman of the Illinois House Revenue Committee. The Senate approved the proposal Tuesday in a special session, but the House balked, sending lawmakers into further negotiations. “We are prepared to come back as soon as there is an agreement, as soon as we

are able to work this out,” said Bradley, who has overseen negotiations. “Unfortunately, that day is not today. Whether it’s tomorrow or the next day or next week, we are prepared to come back as soon as this is settled.” Illinois’ tax dilemma is a collision between two different goals: Balancing the budget and avoiding the image of a state that’s bad for business. And in the process, officials want to avoid being exploited by companies making threats, perhaps empty ones, to flee Illinois.

American Airlines files for bankruptcy protection By David Koenig Associated Press

DALLAS — The parent company of American Airlines filed for bankruptcy protection Tuesday, seeking relief from crushing debt caused by high fuel prices and expensive labor contracts that its competitors shed years ago. The company also replaced its CEO, and the incoming leader said American would probably cut its flight schedule “modestly” while it reorganizes. The new CEO, Thomas W. Horton, did not give specifics. For most travelers, though, flights will operate normally and the airline will honor tickets and take reservations. American said its frequentflier program would be unaffected. AMR Corp., which owns American, was one of the last major U.S. airline companies that had avoided bankruptcy. Rivals United and Delta used bankruptcy to shed costly labor contracts, re-

They also grew through mergers. American — the nation’s third-largest airline and proud of an 80-year history that reaches back to the dawn of passenger travel — was stuck with higher costs that

meant it lost money when matching competitors’ lower fares. In announcing the bankruptcy filing, AMR said that Gerard Arpey, 53, a veteran of the company for almost three decades and CEO since 2003, had retired and was replaced by Hor-

ton, 50, the company president. Horton said the board of directors unanimously decided on Monday night to file for bankruptcy. In a filing with federal bankruptcy court in New York on Tuesday, AMR said it had $29.6 billion in debt and $24.7 billion in assets. With reductions to the flight schedule, Horton said, there would probably be corresponding job cuts. American has about 78,000 employees and serves 240,000 passengers per day. AMR’s move could also trigger more consolidation in the airline industry. Some analysts believe American is likely to merge with US Airways to move closer to United Continental Holdings Inc. and Delta Air Lines Inc. in size. Such a merger would leave five large U.S. airlines compared with nine in 2008. US Airways declined to comment.

House votes to ease airport screening for troops By Larry Margasak Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The House on Tuesday voted unanimously to allow military travelers on official duty to get a special preference to move through airport security checks faster. The bill, approved 404-0, would give the Homeland Security Department six months to devise a preference system for the Armed Forces. The legislation went to the Senate. If the bill becomes law, the earliest beneficiaries would likely be troops returning from Afghanistan next year and their family members, who also would receive preferential treatment. The government already has initiated, and is expanding, a more intelligence-driven trusted traveler program for civilians. Participants include travelers in American

and Delta airlines’ frequent flier programs as well as people who are part of three other programs. These people volunteer more information about themselves so that the government can vet them before they arrive at airport security checkpoints. Chief sponsor Chip Cravaack, R-Minn., said it takes longer for men and women in uniform to pass through security because of their gear, medals on their uniforms and boots that must be unlaced. Allowing them through security more quickly would speed up the waiting time for those not part of a preference program, he said. While Homeland Security would establish the new preferential system, Cravaack envisions troops not having to remove boots, belt buckles, bulky military jackets and medals. Troops could go to the front of the line, or a separate line could be created.

NEW YORK — Americans are beginning to feel more confident about the U.S. economy just as the all-important Christmas shopping season begins. But their optimism may be short-lived. Consumer confidence surged in November to its highest level since July, a sign that Americans may be more willing to spend, the Conference Board reported Tuesday. “Consumers appear to be entering the holiday season in better spirits,” Lynn Franco, director of the Conference Board Consumer Research Center, said in a statement. But confidence is still painfully below what is typically seen during a healthy economy. And Americans could start to feel more skittish if the debt crisis in Europe deepens and stokes fears of another recession in the U.S. “I think this will be a good holiday shopping season,” said Mark Vitner, senior U.S. economist at Wells Fargo. “But the question is what will happen after that?” The Conference Board, a private research firm, said its Consumer Confidence Index climbed 15 points in November to 56.0. That is the high-

est it has been since the 59.2 reading over the summer. That is still well below the level of 90 that indicates an economy on solid footing. The confidence numbers follow other encouraging signs: Every month for the past year except one, spending by Americans has grown 2 percent or more from a year earlier, according to government data. Americans spent $52.4 billion over the four-day Thanksgiving Day weekend, the highest total ever recorded during the traditional start to the holiday shopping season, according to the National Retail Federation. The average shopper spent a record $398.62, up from $365.34 a year ago, the NRF said. And sales on Cyber Monday, the first online shopping day after the Thanksgiving weekend, rose 22 percent from a year ago to $1.25 billion, the biggest online sales day in history, the research firm comScore Inc. reported. Retailers count on the holiday shopping season for as much as 40 percent of their annual sales. According to the consumer index, Americans’ anxiety regarding short-term business conditions, jobs and income prospects eased considerably after six months of declines.

Tuition benefit A tuition break that could attract more U.S. military veterans to state universities is a good investment for Kansas.


egislation that would allow U.S. military veterans to pay in-state tuition at state universities in Kansas seems like a reasonable way to repay veterans for their service to the country and attract students who could be a major asset for the state. Sara Sneath, a Kansas University junior and a Marine Corps veteran, is working with Kansas House Minority Leader Paul Davis, D-Lawrence, on legislation that would allow honorably discharged veterans who served at least 36 months on active duty to pay in-state tuition at state universities without spending extra time establishing Kansas residency. Sneath, a member of the KU Collegiate Veterans Association, already qualifies for instate tuition and wants the same courtesy extended to other veterans. Similar legislation was approved in Arizona earlier this year. The legislation is needed now because the Post-9/11 GI Bill that went into effect this year only pays tuition for veterans at the instate rate; veterans paying out-of-state tuition must make up the difference from their own pockets. The loss of tuition benefits may force many veterans out of school, Sneath said. The tuition break Sneath is seeking could be a positive move for both veterans and the state. For many veterans, higher education was financially out of reach when they enlisted and the promise of education benefits after they completed their service was a major attraction. With major military installations such as Fort Riley and Fort Leavenworth in the state, many veterans have had some experience with Kansas and may be interested in attending a state university here. The veterans who would take advantage of the in-state tuition break likely would be highly motivated students who would be an asset to the universities. After graduation, those students would be more likely to become part of the state’s work force, where their education and professional experience would be a lasting asset for Kansas. Lawmakers will have to assess the potential financial impact of the proposed law on university budgets, but any financial drain should be weighed against the benefits the state stands to reap by attracting and educating qualified veterans. These students have honorably served the United States, often at great personal risk for themselves and hardship for their families. Making it a little easier for these veterans to pursue a university degree is both a patriotic duty and a good investment for the state.

Kansas teen makes her point Let’s talk about the smallness first. Yes, the bullying is troubling, the thin-skinned aversion to criticism vexing. But in the end, it is the piddling, picayune pettiness, the sheer, Lilliputian smallness of the behavior that I can’t quite get past. We are talking about Emma Sullivan’s tweet — and the governor’s response. For those who haven’t heard, it seems Sullivan, an 18-year-old senior at a high school just south of Kansas City, Kan., was listening to Gov. Sam Brownback speak last week at a “Youth in Government” program in Topeka. Sullivan, no fan of the governor, sent the following tweet to her Twitter followers, who numbered perhaps 60: “Just made mean comments at gov brownback and told him he sucked, in person heblowsalot.” She had not in fact met Brownback, much less said mean things to him. It was a joke, spelled j-o-ke, among friends and it would have come and gone in her normal run of tweets about Justin Bieber and the “Twilight” movies, except the governor’s office happened upon it while patrolling the ‘Net for mentions of his name. Next thing you know, a Brownback aide contacts Youth in Government, which contacts Sullivan’s principal. Rather than defending her right to free expression and telling both Youth in Government and the governor’s office to take a flying leap, the principal calls Sullivan to his office and berates her for “embarrassing” the school. He orders her to apologize. Sullivan has refused. On Monday she was vindicated, as

Leonard Pitts Jr.

It is astonishing that an aide to the state’s highest official would have the time or the interest necessary to monitor — and seek to punish — what is said about him by a teenager to an audience of fewer than 100 people. Apparently, Kansas is a paradise where all the serious problems have been solved.”

Brownback apologized to her, saying his staff “overreacted.” Geez, ya think? It is astonishing that an aide to the state’s highest official would have the time or the interest necessary to monitor — and seek to punish — what is said about him by a teenager to an audience of fewer than 100 people. Apparently, Kansas is a paradise where all the serious problems have been solved. This episode seems par for the Zeitgeist, an era wherein our politics frequently feel shrunken and faintly absurd and elected officials

often seem more concerned about manipulating and controlling the perception of their leadership than with providing leadership. Think Florida Gov. Rick Scott, making up a form letter for his supporters to send to newspaper editors praising his bang-up stewardship of a banged-up state. Think Mike Winder, a small town mayor in Utah who posed as a so-called “citizen journalist” and anonymously wrote articles quoting himself. Think President George W. Bush, whose administration paid newspaper columnists to write favorably about his policies. It is not just the smallness, the ethical poverty of those tactics, that stands out. One is also taken by the contempt they suggest for the intelligence of the American electorate. The nation’s symbol is, as you know, the bald eagle, prized for its fierceness and proud bearing. But if we are what some politicians seem to think we are, perhaps that symbol ought instead to be the cow, a docile beast, easily herded. I repeat: if. Emma Sullivan, for one, is not yet bovine. And she did not “embarrass” her school; her principal did. No, her only “sin” was that she expressed an opinion, albeit rudely. She refused to be herded. She got out of line. Good for her. That’s what Americans do. — Leonard Pitts Jr., winner of the 2004 Pulitzer Prize for commentary, is a columnist for the Miami Herald.

Strive for cure To the editor: November is National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month. As anyone who knows someone with Alzheimer’s can tell you, it is a devastating disease. The call for a cure is more urgent than ever. More than 5.4 million people are living with Alzheimer’s in the United States today. That does not include the caregivers and others affected. Additionally, total payments for health and long-term care services for Alzheimer’s disease cost the U.S. an estimated $183 billion this year. More than 50,000 Kansans are diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, expected to grow more than 60,000 in the next 15 years. But there is hope. H.R. 1897, the Alzheimer’s Breakthrough Act, would provide additional funding for research to find a cure. We should all encourage Rep. Lynn Jenkins to co-sign this bill. Since you started to read this letter, two people were diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. Before too many more lives are touched, we have to act. It could be our own futures we save.

U.S. facing constitutional crisis The failure of the congressional ‘supercommittee” to reach accord on deficit reduction legislation is, to put it mildly, discouraging. The structure of government established by the Founding Fathers placed budgetary authority in the hands of Congress so that there could be an effective check on executive power. Now Congress has abrogated its authority in one of the most important budgetary issues of the century and has also basically destroyed one of the most important of the “checks and balances” built into constitutional government. This is a crisis that goes beyond incompetence. This is a constitutional crisis of the highest significance. As a result of Congress’ inability to craft deficit reduction legislation, the president can now implement draconian cuts both on the military and on entitlement programs, cuts that may well threaten the longterm national security and reduce American influence in the world, not to mention the horrific effect it will have on the lives of many poor and elderly Americans whose benefits will be reduced. Even more frightening from a constitutional standpoint are the president’s remarks that, now that the supercommittee has failed, he will not permit Congress to fashion an alternative deficit reduction plan. Presumably, by these statements the president means that he will veto any budget legislation passed in an attempt to prevent the automatic cuts now mandated. If the president actually in-

The failure of Congress and the recent statements by the president may well prove to be a catastrophe for the American economy and an equal catastrophe for our present form of constitutional government.”

tends to do this, then he, too, is deliberately sabotaging the constitutional checks and balances we have always lived with. If he is simply posturing, then, in my opinion, such posturing is utterly inappropriate. The failure of Congress and the recent statements by the president may well prove to be a catastrophe for the American economy and an equal catastrophe for our present form of constitutional government. I think it was a terrible error to create this situation in the first place. Why must we have a situation that sets an artificial date for legislation to be passed and, thereafter a default to automatic cuts in the budget? This is more like a children’s game of “chicken” than the behavior of responsible adults

who have been given the care of American government. Can anyone imagine what the reaction of Jefferson or Madison or Hamilton would have been to the current scenario? Why are we, the people who elect these men and women, permitting them to behave in such a manner? Why is there no public outcry against what is going on in Washington? The latest opinion polls indicate that the popularity ratings for Congress have plummeted to a historic low, in the single digits. The president’s popularity rating is not much better. It seems to me that when Congress and the president can no longer run the government effectively, when the financial operations of the government are set on autopilot, then it is time for the American people to recognize that we have far more than a fiscal problem. We have a constitutional problem that must be resolved if the nation is to continue to thrive. There is a solution here. It is time for responsible Americans to take back control of the government. It is no longer acceptable to leave the fate of our nation to the special interests who elect officials incapable or unwilling to govern. There are elections coming up within the next 12 months. Perhaps, it is time to wipe the slates clean and start fresh. If Congress and the president cannot govern, then they should be tossed out of office and replaced by those who can. — Mike Hoeflich, a distinguished professor in the Kansas University School of Law, writes a regular column for the Journal-World.

Kansas University Chancellor Laurence Chalmers was appealing YEARS the recommendaAGO tions put forth by IN 1971 the state budget director. Chalmers urged restoration of funds to provide money for faculty and classified personnel salaries as well as for operating expenses. Chalmers stressed the likelihood of continued loss of top faculty members if more funds were not provided.

U.S. scrambles to contain fallout with Pakistan after NATO assault By Bradley Klapper Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The Obama administration scrambled diplomatically Tuesday to repair the damage caused by a NATO air assault that killed 24 Pakistani soldiers, hoping Pakistan won’t play spoiler in the U.S.backed plan to shore up Afghanistan’s security and bring international forces home. Senior State and Defense Department officials were reaching out to their counterparts in Islamabad, while the first battlefield accounts suggested that NATO and Pakistani forces may have attacked one another in a tragic case of mistaken identity, with each believing the other was Taliban. A U.S. investigation was under way into the incident, the deadliest among allies in the decade-long fight against al-Qaida and other extrem-

ist groups along the AfghanPakistani frontier. Its findings may not come fast enough as Pakistani repercussions are already mounting: closed border crossings for NATO supplies and troops, and Tuesday’s decision by Islamabad to withdraw from a U.S.-backed meeting on Afghanistan taking place next week in Bonn, Germany. “Pakistan has a crucial role to play in supporting a secure and stable and prosperous Afghanistan,” State Department spokesman Mark Toner said Tuesday. “It’s absolutely critical that Afghanistan’s neighbors play a role in its future development, and certainly its relationship with Pakistan has been critical in that regard.” The breakdown of the U.S.Pakistani partnership comes at an awful time, only weeks after a high-level delegation traveled to Islamabad. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham

Clinton and CIA Director David Petraeus went to patch up the relationship marred by fights over the arrest of a U.S. intelligence contractor, the American operation to kill Osama bin Laden and repeated disagreements over the links between Pakistani intelligence and militant groups in Afghanistan. Last week, U.S. Army Maj. Gen. Daniel Allyn reported improved cooperation along the border and a tapering in incidents of gunfire from Pakistani territory. Officials also have described better U.S.-Pakistani understanding at the political level, which will only become more significant as the United States pulls its troops out of Afghanistan in the next three years and relies on Pakistan to broker reconciliation talks between the U.S.-backed Afghan government and the Taliban-led insurgency.

AMHERST, N.H. — The Republican presidential contenders are tying themselves in knots over immigration. Newt Gingrich is endorsing a South Carolina law that allows police to demand a person’s immigration status — a week after taking heat for advocating a “humane” approach. Rick Perry, though defending Texas’ in-state tuition for some illegal immigrants’ kids, spent Tuesday campaigning with a hardline Arizona sheriff in New Hampshire. And Mitt Romney is talking tough on immigration in his second White House campaign, though he previously supported the idea of allowing some illegal immigrants to stay in the U.S. Meanwhile, many voters say immigration won’t determine which candidate they’ll back for the GOP nomination. Instead, they say they’re focused squarely on the economy and jobs. “In light of the economy, questions about immigration policy are less egregious,” said Loras Schulte, an evangelical conservative from northeast Iowa. So what gives? The contortions by the Republican candidates illustrate the straddle they’re attempting on a complex issue. In order to win the Republican nomination, they must court a GOP electorate that is largely against anything that could be called “amnesty” for illegal immigrants. But they can’t come off as anti-immigrant, a stance that could alienate the independents and moderates — not to mention Hispanics — they’d need to attract in a general election should they win the party’s nod to

Herman Cain tells aides he is reassessing campaign By Ray Henry Associated Press

ATLANTA — Herman Cain told aides Tuesday he is assessing whether the latest allegations of inappropriate sexual behavior against him “create too much of a cloud” for his Republican presidential candidacy to go forward. Acknowledging the “firestorm” arising from an accusation of infidelity, Cain only committed to keeping his campaign schedule for the next several days, in a conference call with his senior staff. “If a decision is made, different than to plow ahead, you all will be the first to know,” he said, according to a transcript of the call made by the National Review, which listened to the conversation. It was the first time doubts about Cain’s continued candidacy had surfaced from the candidate himself. As recently as Tuesday morn-

ing, a campaign spokesman had stated unequivocally that Cain would not quit. Cain denied anew that he had an extramarital affair with a Georgia woman who went public a day earlier with allegations they had been intimate for 13 years. “It was just a friendship relationship,” he said on the call, according to the transcript. “That being said, obviously, this is a cause for reassessment.” He went on: “With this latest one, we have to do an assessment as to whether or not this is going to create too much of a cloud, in some people’s minds, as to whether or not they would be able to support us going forth.” Saying the episode had taken an emotional toll on him and his family, Cain told the aides that people will have to decide whether they believe him or the accuser. “That’s why we’re going to give it

Cindy

Adams, the New York Post columnist hosting the dinner, told the AP she had received a call Tuesday from Cain adviser John Coale saying Cain had decided not to attend. Coale declined to comment. Still, Cain was what one participant described as calm and deliberate as he addressed his staff on the conference call. The participant, Florida state Rep. Scott Plakon, one of four chairmen for Cain’s Florida campaign, said he wanted to see more evidence from the accuser. “If it is true that he didn’t do this, I think he should fight and kick and scratch and win,” Plakon said. But if Cain did have the affair, Plakon said, it would be unacceptable to Republican voters. “That would be very problematic,” he said. “There’s the affair itself and then there’s the truthful factor. He’s been so outspoken in these denials.”

China’s vaccine makers are gearing up over the next few years to push exports in a move that should lower costs of lifesaving immunizations for the world’s poor and provide major new competition for the big Western pharmaceutical companies. But it may take some time before some parts of the world are ready to embrace Chinese products when safety is as sensitive an issue as it is with vaccines — especially given the food, drug and other scandals the country has seen.

Still, China’s entry into this market will be a “game changer,” said Nina Schwalbe, head of policy at the GAVI Alliance, which buys vaccines for 50 million children a year worldwide. “We are really enthusiastic about the potential entry of Chinese vaccine manufacturers,” she said. China’s vaccine-making prowess captured world attention in 2009 when one of its companies developed the first effective vaccine against swine flu — in just 87 days — as the new virus swept the globe. In the past, new vaccine developments had usually been won by the U.S. and Europe. Then, this past March the World Health Organization

announced that China’s drug safety authority meets international standards for vaccine regulation. It opened the doors for Chinese vaccines to be submitted for WHO approval so they can be bought by U.N. agencies and the GAVI Alliance. “China is a vaccine-producing power” with more than 30 companies that have an annual production capacity of nearly 1 billion doses — the largest in the world, the country’s State Food and Drug Administration told The Associated Press. But more needs to be done to build confidence in Chinese vaccines overseas, said Helen Yang of Sinovac, the NASDAQ-listed Chinese biotech

firm that rapidly developed the H1N1 swine flu vaccine. “We think the main obstacle is that we have the name of ‘made in China’ still. That is an issue.” China’s food and drug safety record in recent years hardly inspires confidence: in 2007, Chinese cough syrup killed 93 people in Central America; one year later, contaminated blood thinner led to dozens of deaths in the United States while tainted milk powder poisoned hundreds of thousands of Chinese babies and killed six. The government has since imposed more regulations, stricter inspections and heavier punishments for violators. Perhaps because of that, regulators routinely

crack down on counterfeit and substandard drugmaking. While welcoming WHO’s approval of China’s drug safety authority, one expert said it takes more than a regulatory agency to keep drugmakers from cutting corners or producing fakes. “In the U.S., we have supporting institutions such as the market economy, democracy, media monitoring, civil society, as well as a well-developed business ethics code, but these are all still pretty much absent in China,” said Yanzhong Huang, a China health expert at the Council on Foreign Relations. “For China, the challenge is much greater in building a strong, robust regulative capacity.”

Pfizer tries to protect Lipitor from generics TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Lipitor is so valuable that Pfizer is practically paying people to keep taking its blockbuster cholesterol medicine after generic competition hits the U.S. market this week. Pfizer has devised discounts and incentives for patients, insurers and companies that process prescriptions that will, at least for the next six months, make the brand name HEALTH drug about as cheap as or cheaper than the generics. Pfizer also has spent tens of millions of dollars this year on marketing to keep patients on Lipitor, which loses patent protection today. Normally when a drug’s patent ends, generic rivals grab nearly all its market share in a year or less, and the original maker quietly shifts focus to its newer products. Pfizer Inc., the world’s biggest drugmaker, is not giving up that easy on the best-selling drug in history. Lipitor had peak sales of about $13 billion and still brings in nearly $11 billion a year, about a sixth of Pfizer’s revenue. With no new blockbusters to fill that hole, the company is making an unprecedented push to hang onto Lipitor revenue as long as possible.

Walmart thief gets at least $200K TOPEKA (AP) — Topeka police say they continue to look for a man who they believe stole between $200,000 and $500,000 from a Walmart store in the Kansas capital. Police released a description on Tuesday of the suspect. The theft occurred early Saturday, hours after the Black Friday sales ended. Four images taken from store video cameras show the suspect walking into the store and into the office. The suspect is described as a stocky, white man with a shaved head. He was wearing dark sunglasses, a Carhartt jacket with a grey hooded jacket underneath. Police did not give any additional information. Wal-Mart Stores Inc. spokeswoman Dianna Gee said Tuesday the company was working with police.

Jayhawks eager to be back home By Gary Bedore

Tom Keegan

Mumme tree fruitful A 24-hour drive to the northwest, in a town called Pullman, Wash., a college campus teeters on the verge of euphoria much like our town does. For the moment, Wazzu, not Mizzou, ranks as the biggest rival to Kansas University, and the school isn’t even on the Jayhawks’ schedule. The fan bases of WSU and KU want the same thing. They want to hear their respective athletic directors step to a podium and announce Mike Leach as the next head coach. Many in the industry read the fact that Washington State athletic director Bill Moos said during a Tuesday afternoon news conference that Leach is on his “very short list,” as Moos being confident he will land the former Texas Tech coach. Otherwise, why would he set up the Wazzu fans for disappointment by mentioning his name? One hopeful for the Washington State job was told by a Wazzu insider that it was too late, that Leach had been identified as the school’s choice. Kansas athletic director Sheahon Zenger takes a more stealth approach to hiring coaches and doesn’t publicly discuss names. Leach became such a hot commodity not by sharing his fascination with pirates or by blasting his players for listening to their “fat little girlfriends” or by suing ESPN, the network’s analyst Craig James and Texas Tech. He’s the hottest candidate on the market because he knows how to put huge offensive numbers on the board. For a look at what makes Leach’s “Air Raid” offense tick, I placed a phone call to the man under whom Leach and so many other football coaches learned it. Leach worked for Hal Mumme at Valdosta State and Kentucky. West Virginia’s Dana Holgorsen, Louisiana Tech’s Sonny Dykes (a possible KU candidate) and Murray State’s Chris Hatcher also fell from the Mumme coaching tree. Mumme, Mumme who reversed Kentucky’s fortunes by going 18-17 in his first three seasons (1997-1999), was fired after a poor fourth season undermined by an NCAA investigation that resulted in a postseason ban and loss of scholarships. From there, he coached at Southeastern Louisiana and New Mexico State. Mumme just completed his third season at McMurry University, a Division III school in Abilene, Texas. He inherited a team that had gone 0-8 in 2008 and played in front of crowds too small to be called crowds. His team had an eight-game winning streak this season, scoring 63, 50, 41, 60, 24, 49, 63 and 25 points during it. The team qualified for the postseason for the first time in school history and won a playoff game. McMurry moves to Division II next season and is building a new stadium. No man is more responsible for revolutionizing the way college football is played today than Mumme, and he’s coaching in the shadows and winning big. “Abilene’s a great place,” Mumme said. “It’s a lot like Mayberry — full-service filling station and a drive-in picture show. How many football coaches can say that to a recruit’s mom?” Please see KEEGAN, page 4B

After exhilarating trips to New York and Hawaii, Kansas University’s basketball players are back where they feel most comfortable — home. “I was shooting in the gym the other day. It felt so good just to be back,” KU senior point guard Tyshawn Taylor said. “I’m excited to play a couple games in the fieldhouse.” The Jayhawks, who are 1-0 at home and 2-2 at neutral sites, play their first home game in 19 days today — a 7 p.m. contest against (3-4) Florida Atlantic. “Definitely, I miss our fans. You don’t get the same reaction (on the road) when you dunk or do something good as you do in

the fieldhouse,” junior forward Thomas Robinson said. “I can’t wait to get out there just to see our fans, see the videos, the reaction, our last-minute chant and everything.” The last time KU went more than 19 days without a home game was way back in the 200001 season when the Jayhawks traveled to Ohio State, KC’s Kemper Arena, Oklahoma and Texas Tech in a 32-day span in December/January. “It’ll be fun for our guys to get back home. There’s not too many teams in America that are high-majors that are playing their second home game on Nov. 30,” KU coach Bill Self said. “From that standpoint, I know our guys will be more in a comfort state to get better.”

Like KU, FAU has spent most of its time away from home. The Owls, who won the Sun Belt Conference last season and are picked to win the league again this season, lost to Portland (70-65) and Washington (77-71) and defeated Georgia State (84-77) at a season-opening tourney in Seattle. The Owls also lost at American (62-56) and South Florida (68-55) and won at Hofstra (62-60). FAU won its lone game on campus in Boca Raton — a 80-75 overtime decision over George Mason. “They are a nice team and quick, really quick,” Self said. Greg Gantt, a 6-foot-2 junior guard from Gainesville, Fla., averages a team-leading 14.7 points a game. Junior forward Kore White (6-8, Fort Lauderdale,

Fla.) and freshman guard Omari Grier (6-4, Erial, N.J.) follow at 10.4 ppg each. Grier scored a career-high 20 points off the bench Saturday against South Florida. White averages 5.9 rebounds and has 15 blocked shots. Pablo Bertone, a 6-4 sophomore from Argentina, averages 10.0 points and 4.3 rebounds per game. Raymond Taylor, a 5-6 junior from Miami, averages 7.0 points and 5.1 assists. “He’s really fast. He’ll probably be as quick as anybody we go against all year,” Self said of Taylor. The Owls are coached by Mike Jarvis, who is 44-57 in four seasons at FAU. Overall, he’s 363-259 with stops at St. John’s,

With Day 2 of the Kansas University football coaching search having come and gone, it appears to be a nationwide race for the services of Mike Leach. No one at KU has confirmed that the former Texas Tech head coach is the school’s top target, but strong signs point to that being the case. KU’s not alone in that line of thinking, though, as several other schools with head football coach openings also have Leach at or near the top of their list of candidates. Washington State, which made its openFollow the ing official on latest news Tuesday with from the KU the firing of coaching head coach search on Paul Wulff, Matt Tait’s appears to “Tale of the be the most Tait” blog. outspoken of On KUSthe bunch. At a 30-minute news conference to announce the firing, WSU athletic director Bill Moos talked openly about the idea of bringing Leach to Pullman, Wash. “I know Mike Leach,” Moos said. “Actually, Mike was here last spring conducting a clinic ... Pretty good record. I read his book.” Moos went on to say that Leach, along with Houston’s Kevin Sumlin, were on his short list of candidates and emphasized that WSU would be aggressive in trying to hire its next head coach. “We’ve either got to run with the big dogs or admit that we’re a doormat,” Moos said. “We can’t wait and embrace mediocrity.” While the recent flood of firings has many feeling like the market is saturated with openings, the current coaching landscape pales in comparison to what took place in 1996, when 29 Div. I head coaching openings were available. Kansas athletic director Sheahon Zenger, who has been quiet about specific candidates during the early days of KU’s search, was happy to talk about the impact other job openings might have on KU. “The bottom line is, each year we have this, and some years we have more than others,” Zenger said of the large number of openings. “I think it’s a cyclical thing.” Asked if employment opportunities elsewhere might make landing a new head coach more difficult for Kansas, Zenger pointed to KU’s search being a process. “That would be the easy answer,” he said. “But even though it looks like there are a lot of jobs open, there are dozens of coaches out there.

LAWRENCE HIGH’S WINTER SPORT ATHLETES HOPE to build on the success of the Lions’ fall teams. From left: Brianna Anglin, girls basketball; KJ Pritchard, boys basketball; Reece Wright-Conklin, wrestling; and Zach Andregg, boys swimming.

Lions aim high this winter By Corey Thibodeaux

Lawrence High has a surprising fall season of sports with an unexpected uprising from football, a breakthrough for soccer and a promising future for volleyball. Even as underdogs, this fall’s Lions found ways to have success when it truly mattered, and this winter, Lawrence High’s other teams are in position to do the same.

Wrestling The preseason has been kind to the LHS wrestling team. In the Kansas Class 6A rankings, the Lions are ranked first heading into the season, and several wrestlers are also highly ranked. “We’ve got a target on our back to prove that we earned that No. 1 ranking,” fifth-year coach Pat Naughton said. Eight of the 10 state qualifiers from last year are back, led by seniors Reece Wright-Conklin, Brad Wilson and Nick Pursel, with juniors Andrew Denning, Hunter Haralson and Caden Lynch. All of them are listed in the top five of their respective weight classes in the state. Freshman Tristan Star will look to make immediate contributions as the third-ranked wrestler in the 106-pound weight class. With all the wrestlers’ experience and the team’s label as the best in the state, Naughton said the challenge will be keeping his

Lions grounded because no one wins championships in November. LHS hosts regionals this year, so there is an extra incentive to have a good season for the home crowd. The highest LHS has ever finished in wrestling is fifth in the state. The Lions tied for sixth last year, and it’s going to take a lot of hard work just to get back to that point. “If we could just rely on our talent, then we wouldn’t need to practice,” Naughton said.

Boys basketball Since their sophomore year, seniors KJ Pritchard, Anthony Buffalomeat and Logan Henrichs have been groomed to be the nucleus of 2011-12’s team. They have improved each year and now have their last — and perhaps best — shot at making the state tournament. “We were building for the future,” third-year head coach Mike Lewis said. “We will hopefully see how that pays off.” The Lions turned heads last year after upsetting top-seeded Olathe South in the sub-state tournament, only to fall to Leavenworth in the next game. They were underdogs last year, but expectations are higher this year, Lewis said. LHS won’t be overlooked coming into this season. The three seniors reprise their starting roles, with junior Shane Willoughby at point guard. The new face in the lineup is 6-foot-6

sophomore Bryce Montes De Oca, who will be starting at center for the Lions. And for those wondering about junior Brad Strauss and his ankle injury, don’t expect to see the football phenom on the court for a while. “Most likely, his basketball will take place in January and February,” Lewis said.

Girls basketball In his third year as the girls basketball coach, Nick Wood is starting to get all the right pieces. The upperclassmen have been in Wood’s system for a majority of their careers now, and the rest of the roster seems to be on the same page. “This is the most depth we’ve had in our program the three years that we’ve been doing this,” Wood said. “We think with that depth, it’s going to create really competitive practices.” The Lions will be led by returning veterans Krista Costa, Brianna Anglin, Christina Haswood and Natalie Wilkins. Several players didn’t get much playing time last season, so upand-comers such as Kylie Seaman, Monica Howard and Free State High transfer Kionna Coleman will have to get experience fast. The team is coming off a firstround sub-state loss to Olathe Northwest after a 6-15 season. And with a tough Sunflower League, Please see LHS, page 3B

NBA to open up facilities today MIAMI (AP) — NBA arenas are about to be unlocked. For the first time since the lockout began on July 1, NBA players are going to be welcomed back to their team facilities, said league spokesman Tim Frank. The league sent a memo to clubs Tuesday announcing the move, plus giving teams permission to begin speaking with agents at 9

a.m. today — though deals cannot yet be offered, and no contracts can be signed before Dec. 9. Teams may host “voluntary player workouts� and physicals. Training camps will not open until Dec. 9, and the regular season is expected to begin Christmas Day with marquee matchups, including a Miami-Dallas rematch of last season’s NBA finals.

A person familiar with the league’s Christmas schedule told the Associated Press on Tuesday that the NBA would feature five games this year on Dec. 25 instead of the originally planned three. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the NBA does not plan to announce the Christmas lineup until later this week. The decision for the league to schedule

five Christmas games was first reported by The New York Times. The league also said owners, general managers and coaches are now free to comment publicly about things such as contracts, plans for future free-agent signings, the team’s prospects for the upcoming season, and other typical public comments that a team would make about players.

Source says Red Sox to hire Valentine The Boston Red Sox have picked Bobby Valentine to be their next manager, and the sides were working to complete a contract, a person familiar with the decision told the Associated Press on Tuesday night. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because no announcement had been made. Several media outlets in Boston, citing anonymous sources, reported earlier in the evening that Valentine would be the team’s new manager. The club had no comment, spokesperson Pam Ganley said. Valentine was in Japan this week, where he managed from 200409, and said he was about to take off on a flight when he sent the AP a text mes- Valentine sage at 9:48 p.m. Tuesday saying he had no comment on “the Red Sox situation.� Valentine would succeed Terry Francona, who left after eight seasons following Boston’s record collapse in September. Francona guided the Red Sox to a pair of World Series championships, in 2004 and 2007. Valentine previously managed in the majors with the New York Mets and Texas Rangers, leading the Mets to the 2000 World Series. He had been working as a baseball analyst for ESPN. The Red Sox also interviewed Gene Lamont, Torey Lovullo, Dale Sveum, Sandy Alomar Jr. and Pete Mackanin. Sveum was hired to manage the Chicago Cubs by former Red Sox general manager Theo Epstein. Mackanin and Alomar were told they were no longer in the running.

By David Haugh Chicago Tribune

In the days before Michigan State named Mark Dantonio its football coach in November 2006, I recall pleas for MSU basketball coach Tom Izzo to recruit his more well-known buddy, Steve Mariucci, for the job. Not sure many outside the Dantonio household expected a Spartan existence to include 43 victories over the next five years. When outgoing Wisconsin coach Barry Alvarez hand-picked Bret Bielema as his successor in July 2005, I wonder who outside Madison knew how to pronounce Bielema’s last name. Four 10-plus-victory seasons later, everybody in college football knows it’s BEE-luh-muh and Bret has one T. Last January, Michigan hiring Brady Hoke barely produced enough electricity to light up a porch at the Big House. Hoke was considered the third choice after marquee Michigan men Jim Harbaugh and Les Miles said no. Now the biggest question about Hoke is whether his 10-2 team will be the second Big Ten team to play in a BCS bowl game. Good athletic directors looking for head coaches worry about steak, not just sizzle. They conduct searches wearing earplugs to block out noise from alumni and media. They realize the buzz over sexy hires usually affects only one offseason of ticket sales and nothing fills stadiums like winning consistently. They quietly find the right candidate who fits best on their campus, in their program, even if that coach doesn’t have a reputation that makes his name worthy of a Twitter hashtag. We soon will find out what kind of athletic director Mike Thomas is. Since firing Ron Zook on Sunday, the Illinois AD already has been bombarded with advice to hire former Texas Tech coach Mike Leach to provide credibility Illini football lacks. The way Leach has been described, he would stand alongside George Halas and Amos Alonzo Stagg among our state’s all-time great football innovators the minute he signed. Yes, Thomas will aim high and money won’t prevent him from pursuing the hottest of candidates, according to two people familiar with Illinois’ thinking. But my wish list would start with Boise State’s Chris Petersen and Houston’s Kevin Sumlin — whom Thomas must tempt with a blank checkbook and the prestige of the Big Ten before UCLA or Arizona State beat him to it. My second tier would include Cincinnati’s Butch Jones, South Florida’s Skip Holtz and Michigan State defensive coordinator Pat Narduzzi. Only reluctantly would I engage Leach, fired at Texas Tech over an abuse claim by a player he disputed in lawsuits still pending. Everybody deserves a second chance, but an athletic director making his first major hire like Thomas doesn’t have to be the one offering it. One major-college AD told me he wondered how any school could hire Leach given his abrasive style regardless of any schematic advantage he provides. Another facetiously wished Thomas luck controlling Leach if he did. Leach indeed possesses the brightest offensive mind available, but he’s also contentious, litigious and the most combustible, controversial candidate too. Former Northwestern coach Gary Barnett once put it this way for the Denver Post: “If you’re going to play for Mike Leach, buyer beware. He’s a goofy guy.� Take a 35,000-foot view of college sports. Thanks to scandals at Penn State and Syracuse, no question will be asked by parents during football recruiting in the coming years more than this: Will you take care of my son? How does a coach like Leach, who once was accused, and later fired, for allegedly ordering a player with concussion symptoms to spend practice in a dark shed, answer that? How much might his baggage clutter the path for potential Illinois recruits? Thomas is hiring a head coach, not casting a reality-TV show.


his stomp doesn’t keep him away from his playoff-hopeful teammates when they need him most. NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said Suh’s hearing would be with Art Shell, an appointed appeal officer who is paid by the league and NFLPA. As of late Tuesday afternoon, the hearing hadn’t been scheduled, but the league has said it would expedite the procedure to give Suh and Lions an answer before Sunday’s game at New Orleans. If Suh doesn’t win the appeal, he won’t play against the Saints or in the Dec. 11 home game against Minnesota. He would return Dec. 12 ahead of a road game against Oakland.

Chiefs release OT Gaither KANSAS CITY, MO. — The Kansas City Chiefs have released offensive tackle Jared Gaither just days after he committed a costly false-start penalty in a loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Gaither had come in for one down after left tackle Branden Albert was slow to get up. Gaither was called for a false start, pushing the Chiefs back five yards, and they eventually had to settle for a field goal. Kansas City wound up losing 13-9. The 6-foot-9, 340-pound Gaither was once viewed as a cornerstone offensive lineman in Baltimore, where he started five postseason games. But injuries kept him out last season, and he was unable to reclaim the same form from early in his career with Kansas City. His release leaves Steve Maneri as the only backup tackle.

He surrendered to Denton police last week after learning a warrant had been issued for his arrest.

Self looks to KU bench for more production By Gary Bedore

Kansas University basketball coach Bill Self has certain numbers in mind when it comes to production from his key reserves. “Realistically, if we could get close to 50 minutes out of our bench, I’d be happy with that,” said Self, who used three subs (Conner Teahan, Naadir Tharpe, Justin Wesley), who combined for 30 minutes in last Wednesday’s 68-61 loss to Duke. The Blue Devils’ three subs, coincidentally, also played 30 minutes in the Maui Invitational title game. “That’d be a couple guys getting 15 each and a couple 10 each,” Self added. “If we could get to where you are having a productive 50, I think we’d be in pretty good shape.” Of junior forward Kevin Young, who didn’t play versus Duke, Self said: “He is still thinking, not reacting. I think he can be more aggressive. I mean that in a positive way, having more of a presence out there and getting his hands on balls, carrying out assignments, doing things we know he can do. When he starts doing those things, he’ll start scoring a little more, no question.” Of sophomore forward Justin Wesley, who had five fouls in 10 minutes versus Duke, Self said: “Keeping his hands off the opponent would be a good start. When I was here coaching as a GA (grad assistant under Larry Brown), we had a guy named (Greg) Dreiling and (Danny) Manning who played inside. They (refs) didn’t call fouls on them, but as soon as (Chris) Piper checked in, he got three quick whistles and didn’t do half as much as the other guys do. I do believe bench guys don’t get the same respect starters do. We’ve got to be better than that (in not fouling).” The 6-9 Wesley said his foul trouble is “something that’s very correctable and something I think I’ll have (corrected) by the game Wednesday. I shouldn’t have used my hands like that.” Asked about his penchant for fouling, Wesley said: “I think it was just sitting out a year (after transferring from Lamar). In practice we don’t


George Washington and Boston University. “Mike coached a guy in high school who wasn’t a bad player — Patrick Ewing,” Self said. Indeed, Jarvis coached the likes of Ewing, Rumeal Robinson and Karl Hobbs at Rindge Technical High School in Cambridge, Mass. “He certainly does a good job. They won the league last year and are picked to win it again this year. It’ll be a tough game.” After today, KU remains at home to play South Florida on Saturday (4:15 p.m.), Long


Wood said the Lions need to work their way up the conference this year. The Lions lost last year’s leading scorer and rebounder, TaMiya Green, to graduation, and Wood doesn’t see just one person stepping into her role. The good thing about this team, he said, is that there could be a new leading scorer every night to fill the void. “I feel like that makes us a more dangerous team,” Wood said.

Life is progressing well.” O Stats, facts: KU won the only previous meeting with tonight’s foe, Florida Atlantic, 87-49, on Nov. 27, 2007. The Owls were coached by former KU guard Rex Walters. ... Robinson has five straight double-doubles, which ties for third on the consecutive double-double list at KU. The record is seven set twice before by Raef LaFrentz (1998) and Drew Gooden (2002). Robinson is the first Jayhawk to record five-straight double-doubles since Wayne Simien in 2005.

Beach State on Tuesday (8 p.m.) and Ohio State on Dec. 10 (2:15 p.m.). After finals, KU meets Davidson on Dec. 19 at Sprint Center in Kansas City, Mo. “March is a long way away. We want to get as good as we can nonconference to give us the best chance we can to have success in our league,” Self said. “Florida Atlantic, South Florida, Long Beach, Ohio State ... it doesn’t get any easier at all. We’re not going to get a chance to catch our breath for a while. “When you play a hard schedule, you’ve got to win some of the games. We won a couple big games, lost a couple big games. We need to have some big wins moving forward. I do think it’s a great

barometer of where you are at. We’ve been exposed in some things we don’t do well. I’d rather get exposed in November than January or February,” Self added. As Self points out, not many teams have played the likes of Duke, Georgetown, UCLA and Kentucky this early. “I think we’ve gotten better each day with the schedule we’ve played. Our schedule has forced us to probably have an enthusiasm and energy level to where we want to get better each day,” Self said. “The games on the horizon should be motivation, ‘We’ve got to get better today because we’ve got so-and-so coming up’ and that kind of stuff.”

Sunflower League and 17th place at state. Coach Kent McDonald says he doesn’t have the year-round swimmers that schools such as Free State have, which makes the road even tougher. He does, however, have seniors Zach Andregg, Dylan Orth and Reid Hildenbrand and junior Adam Edmonds, who all ran cross country in the fall. One would think that the endurance training in cross country would translate to the pool when McDonald puts his swimmers into the long races. “It’s a different type of endurance,” he said. “It’s a lot harder than running. They have trouble doing it.” But the work ethic did carry over, McDonald said, which may be more important. Andregg, who uses his

swimming and cross country training to tackle triathlons, was a hundredth of a second from setting the school record in the 100 freestyle last season. He is within reach of several other LHS records, so the team is eager to watch Andregg be the first LHS swimmer in years to break a school record. Three new divers — Matthew Day, Alphonso Reeves and Ivrahin Eglwani — are showing promise so far. McDonald said sophomore swimmer Ken Schraad is looking good as well. Even though many of the veterans were pursuing other sports during the offseason, they are still reliable in the pool, McDonald said. “We’ve got three lanes, half the pool, of people who know what to do,” McDonald said. “We have some upside if we can get them all in shape.”

2011 Kansas football postseason awards ———

Matt Tait looks back at the season’s most memorable moments and players Even though the Kansas University football season officially ended just four days ago, most people have moved on and are focused solely on the ongoing coaching search that could take another couple of days or another couple of weeks. We’ll have plenty about that throughout the next several days, but, for now, let’s take a quick look back at the season that was. By now, you’re all aware that the Jayhawks’ performance this fall led to the firing of head coach Turner Gill, who, in two years, compiled an overall record of 5-19, including just one win in 17 Big 12 Conference games. There are all kinds of statistics that sum up just how bad the 2011 season was for Kansas. The Jayhawks were outscored 525-268 overall, outgained 6,197-3,922 in total yardage and were downright awful in the third quarter, giving up 145 points while scoring just 38. Although this year’s Jayhawks limped their way to a 2-10 record — including 10 straight losses to close the season — and had more bad and embarrassing moments than good and inspiring — there are a few moments and men worthy of a look back.

the heart and soul of the KU defense. Johnson’s 66 solo tackles tied for a team best, and he added six tackles for loss, two forced fumbles and an interception. His numbers only told half the story, though. Not only was he the team’s top defender, he also was the team’s undisputed leader and seemed to be the one guy who played at Johnson 100 percent every snap, no matter what the scoreboard said. Johnson’s stellar year was the result of a lot of hard work, and there’s a chance that could pay off down the road, as he was the one KU player that NFL scouts continually showed up to watch during practice.

got something a little bit different to sell. It’s all about fit. And we’re searching for the right fit for Kansas.”

Recruits coming ... Despite its head coaching position being in limbo, KU picked up a surprise commitment from a junior-college defensive lineman Tuesday. According to, Ty McKinney, 6-foot-3, 310 pounds, of Trinity Valley Community College in Athens, Texas, committed to defensive line coach Buddy Wyatt during an in-home visit. McKinney was one of KU’s top targets and fills one of KU’s biggest needs. He chose the Jayhawks over offers from Arkansas State, Houston and UTEP. ... and going Any time a school goes through a coaching change, there are a few guys who decide to leave the program. That’s particularly true of in-

coming recruits, and KU has seen some of that happen in the days since former head coach Turner Gill was fired. Washington, D.C., defensive end De’Jon Wilson, a 6-3, 240-pound end from Woodson High, recently switched his commitment from Kansas to Colorado. Wilson had committed to KU in August. He joins Florida cornerback Daniel Gray, 6-foot, 165, in bailing on the Jayhawks. Gray committed to KU in May but changed his commitment to Tennessee during the final weeks of KU’s 2-10 season. Their defections left the Jayhawks with six of the eight recruits they had secured commitments from in the Class of 2012. Several have said recently that they’ll wait and see whom KU brings in before making a final decision. They include: Blue Valley West offensive lineman Brian Beckmann; Camden, Ark., athlete Derek Keaton; Hialeah, Fla., quarterback Bilal Marshall; Clarksville, Texas, cornerback H.B. Rosser; Garland, Texas, quarterback Seth Russell; and Waco, Texas, tight end Jordan Smith.

Defensive Rookie of the Year: Victor Simmons Simmons played sparingly in 11 games and finished with just 14 tackles, but was able to work his way onto the two-deep depth chart and, when he was in there, showed flashes of what he’s capable of delivering. Physical, fast and Simmons not afraid of anything, Simmons’ best moment of the year came against Oklahoma when he forced and recovered a fumble on the same play. Look for more of that and more in the near future. Runner-up: Darius Willis Willis didn’t quite live up to the ridiculously high expectations set for him, but he did play his best football of the season down the stretch and managed to finish third on the team in tackles, with 81. Still just a sophomore, Willis’ best days still appear to be ahead of him. Game of the Year: KU 45, Northern Illinois 42 After exorcising the demons of 2010’s embarrassing season opener in Week 1, the Jayhawks entered their Week 2 contest with Northern Illinois as home underdogs. Few believed that the Jayhawks could handle the Huskies, and they almost didn’t. NIU quarterback Chandler Harnish passed for 315 yards and ran for 89 more, but it was the Jayhawks, who ran for 253 yards and threw for 281 more, who found a way to score last in this shootout that lasted more than three hours. The Jayhawks won on a late touchdown pass (see Offensive Play of the Year) and Memorial Stadium was rocking. Runner-up: Baylor 31, Kansas 30, overtime For three quarters, KU played its best game of the season. Kansas led 24-3 with 12 minutes to play and had pretty much bottled up Baylor’s all-world quarterback, Robert Griffin III. Then the fourth quarter came and Griffin went wild, leading the Bears to tie the game in regulation and take the lead on the first possession of overtime. After KU scored a TD on its first offensive play of OT — a 25-yard pass from Webb to Tim Biere — KU coach Turner Gill elected to go for two and the win. After a couple of time outs, Webb’s two-point pass fell incomplete and Baylor escaped.

Beshears somehow contorted his body into the end zone for the game-winning score with nine seconds remaining. The TD was the second of the game for Beshears, who logged seven receptions for 70 yards in the game. Runner-up: Tie And these are more general than specific. Freshman tailback Tony Pierson delivered a couple of jaw-dropping shakes near the line of scrimmage that allowed him to race down the field for extra yardage, and fellowfreshman Darrian Miller’s relentless effort on so many runs made KU’s running game much improved from a season ago.

So many branches of Mumme’s tree inherited his magical knack for taking over losing programs and turning them around by recruiting the right quarterbacks into a quarterbackfriendly system and putting them through practices not quite like any others. In a typical football practice, Mumme said, a receiver will catch maybe one or two thrown balls every 10 minutes. “In our practices, in a 10-minute period, our receivers will catch 75 or 80 balls,” Mumme said. Every time a receiver runs a route, Mumme said, he is thrown the ball and required to run it all the way into the end zone. Five footballs will be in the air at one time, and five receivers will be running to the end zone after catching them. “That’s the reason we score a lot,” Mumme said. “We practice scoring all the

We expect to score because we did it on every play in practice.” — McMurry University coach — and Mike Leach mentor — Hal Mumme on his up-tempo offense time. We expect to score because we did it on every play in practice.” His passion for his job remains as high as ever. “A 19-year-old at McMurry isn’t any more or any less important than a 19-year-old at the University of Texas,” Mumme said. “They’re here to get an education and play football, and it’s a chance for me to create great offense, which is what I enjoy doing. I love Saturday afternoons. I don’t care if 50,000 are watching or 5,000.” So how does he score so many points everywhere he goes? Finding the right quarterback is a must in making the Air Raid offense go. Mumme agreed that the key to recruiting is not selling, rather thoroughly

during KU’s goal-line stand in the first half.

Special Teams Play of the Year: D.J. Beshears’ 51-yard kickoff return that set up KU’s game-winning drive against Northern Illinois Had it not been for Beshears’ long return that set Kansas up at the NIU 47-yard line with 4:49 to play and Kansas down by four points, the Jayhawks’ final drive likely would have been a little tougher. This was definitely Beshears’ night. Runner-up: This isn’t a specific play, but it bears mention. Fifteen of sophomore punter Ron Doherty’s 64 punts this season were downed inside the opponent’s 20-yard line. Doherty, one of the few special teams bright spots this season, finished the year with a 42.8yard average. Most Improved Player: Bradley McDougald After moving from wide receiver to safety for the final two games of 2010, McDougald took a few games to adjust to his new posiMcDougald tion in 2011. Once he did, though, he was a beast. He has the look of an allconference pick as a senior. Runner-up: Toben Opurum Disruptive off the edge evaluating a quarterback’s physical and mental abilities. “Good leaders, good team guys who have all the intangibles,” Mumme said. “That’s more important than arm strength, size or speed.” How are the intangibles evaluated? “For me, I want to see his grades,” Mumme said. “What kind of person is he? I want to know the team likes him. Will they follow him? Usually, if you talk to the offensive linemen, they’ll tell you the truth. They’re the most unselfish and tend to be the most honest guys on a football team, so I ask them.” The tangibles? “In our system, he has to have a great pocket feel, a quick release, has to be able to see the field and has to have a great passion for what we do,” Mumme said. “Is he going to be the guy who stays late, the guy who gets everybody together to do extra throwing and catching and watching film? That’s how they get to be great. It’s not just God-given ability.” Judging a quarterback’s field vision is best done at

throughout the season. The former running back finally looked comfortable on defense and proved that the switch may have been a good move. He, too, could be in a for a big senior season.

Feel-good Moment of 2011: After being carted off on a stretcher during the second quarter of KU’s 47-17 loss to Oklahoma, senior center Jeremiah Hatch returned from the hospital to the sideline in street clothes in the fourth quarter. Many of Hatch’s coaches and teammates talked about what a lift it was to see one of their leaders up and walking around after such a scary moment. Runner-up: Simply put: Every time I talked to assistant coaches Chuck Long and Vic Shealy. Always gracious and understanding after losses, neither man ever took out the disappointment of a rough season on reporters trying to do their jobs. Both men shared great stories throughout their time at KU, and both will be missed. Feel-not-so-good Moment of 2011: Take your pick The Jayhawks were rocked by 30 or more points six times this season. It won’t do any good to rehash them, and it’s hard to separate one blowout from the next. So picking two of the following should cover both feel-bad moments: 66-24 at Georgia Tech; 70-28 at Oklahoma State; 47-17 vs. Oklahoma; 59-21 vs. Kansas State; 43-0 at Texas; 61-7 at Texas A&M. camps, where Mumme said he likes to stand behind the quarterback and see what he sees. He’ll even sit them in a chair and perform a peripheral-vision test. Judging how fast the ball comes out of the quarterback’s hands is another skill best judged in person, he said. He has no playbook and said quarterbacks can learn the offense in three days and then master it by getting more reps daily in practice. After three times through that cycle, or to put it another way, after nine workouts, Mumme said, “You get a pretty good feel if a guy can play.” Leach is the most proven of the Mumme disciples, but far from the only successful one. “Sonny Dykes won the WAC with a freshman at quarterback,” in his second year at the school, Mumme pointed out. “Dana Holgorsen. Chris Hatcher. Chris Hatcher’s a great football coach.” If the next Kansas coach falls off the Mumme tree, fun Saturdays are on the horizon.



‘Big Griff’ big for Baylor, too ————

Other RG eager to ‘get dirty’ so QB can ‘stay pretty’ WACO, TEXAS (AP) — Baylor’s biggest player on the field has the initials RG and is referred to by teammates as “Big Griff.” Yes, his name is Robert Griffin. But he isn’t the Heisman Trophy hopeful quarterback for the 19th-ranked Bears. This is the 6-foot-6, 330-pound right guard blocking for the quarterback with the same name. “We never call him the other Robert Griffin,” said Robert Griffin III, the 6-2, 220-pound quarterback who isn’t related to the big lineman. “No one calls me ‘Little Griff’, but we call him ‘Big Griff.’ He outweighs me by a lot, but by no means am I little.” There is never any confusion on the field over which Griffin is which. RG3 is the big-play, dual-threat quarterback who has 4,290 total yards and 41 touchdowns (34 passing, seven rushing) this season for the Bears (8-3, 5-3 Big 12). Robert T. Griffin, nicknamed “RG2” by coach Art Briles, is the big man blocking up front. “He stays pretty, I get dirty. It’s my job,” said Griffin the lineman. “I was born with that name. He was born with that name, and we’re just two athletes that came to Baylor and we love it. ... I love him just like a brother. He has my name, he’s No. 10, I’m No. 79. I’m going to block for him, I’m going to do what I have to do to protect that man and keep him off the grass.” The team with two Robert Griffins already has won the most games at Baylor in 20 years. The Bears went 4-0 in November after winning only four Big 12 games combined the previous 15 Novembers. Baylor plays its regularseason finale Saturday at home against Texas (7-4, 4-4). Then the Bears will play

Washington State fires Wulff after four years PULLMAN, WASH. (AP) — Washington State football coach Paul Wulff was fired Tuesday after four years during which his teams won only nine games. “I appreciate all that Paul has done for Washington State football,” athletic director Bill Moos said in a statement announcing the firing. “He was hired with the objective of rebuilding this pro-

gram and establishing a solid foundation. For that I thank him.” Moos said he hoped to hire Wulff’s successor in two or three weeks. He said he had a list with a half-dozen names, including former Texas Tech coach Mike Leach and former Oregon coach Mike Bellotti. He declined to reveal the other names.

BAYLOR QUARTERBACK ROBERT GRIFFIN III (10) RUNS past right guard Robert Griffin (79) during the Bears’ game Saturday against Texas Tech. The bigger Griffin is referred to as “Big Griff” by his teammates, to avoid confusion with the Heisman Trophy-hopeful QB who shares his name. in their second consecutive bowl game following a 15-season postseason drought. Even while playing one of the nation’s toughest schedules, the Bears still have a chance for their only 10win season other than 1980, which was Mike Singletary’s senior season. Griffin the offensive lineman will be playing his final Baylor home game Saturday. He has been a starter both seasons since transferring from Navarro College after playing on a state championship team for Texas high school power Euless Trinity. Before joining the Bears, the lineman was known just as Robert Griffin. The initial from his middle name, Tor-

rez, was added at Baylor to distinguish him on rosters and in publications from the quarterback. “He’s a big guy and he’s an emotional player. He plays with a lot of emotion and that’s the one thing you have to love about him,” the quarterback said of the lineman. “Every time he lines up, he’s going to give you his all.” Griffin, the fourth-year junior quarterback, didn’t get to play in the second half of last weekend’s 66-42 win over Texas Tech because of concussion-like symptoms after taking a hard hit to the helmet just before halftime. He threw for 106 yards and a touchdown, and ran for 62

yards and two scores against the Red Raiders, a week after a school-record 551 total yards in a win over Oklahoma. But Griffin, one of four players in major college history with at least 9,000 yards passing and 2,000 yards rushing in his career, is expected to play against the Big 12’s best defense. The game against the Longhorns will be the last chance for RG3 to impress Heisman Trophy voters before that award is presented the following weekend. “Everybody knows who’s the Heisman,” said Griffin the lineman. “He’s big Griff too. He does big things too, just like me.”

rassed both times they faced opponents with top passing attacks. Texas Tech, which ranks seventh in the nation in passing, ate up Oklahoma’s defense with short screen passes and long runs after the catch. Baylor, which ranks fifth, went over the top repeatedly with Robert Griffin III connecting for deep passes to several receivers. The Bears ended up with 616 yards — the most ever allowed by the Sooners — and 485 came through the air. “Anytime you let an offense do that to you, not only as a secondary but as a defense, that’s crushing. I do feel like it is a challenge,” safety Aaron Colvin said. “When you hear some of the things that people say to you, constantly hitting you up — ‘Blah, blah, blah, how did you play that bad?’ — you do take it as a

challenge and you do want to prove people wrong.” Sam Proctor started last week at free safety in place of Javon Harris, who was picked on several times against Baylor, and Oklahoma held Iowa State to a season-low 245 yards and forced four turnovers in a 26-6 victory. The question is how relevant that performance is to this week’s game. Iowa State doesn’t pose the same passing threat as Oklahoma State, and the windiest game day in Norman since 1964 made it difficult for the Cyclones to pass regardless of the defense. “Even though it’s a different offense, we still have to go out there and play like we did Saturday — causing turnovers, flying around, guys were having fun and smiling,” Colvin said. Stoops said the secondary also needs the front seven to

provide help by getting pressure on Weeden, who is far less likely than Griffin to take off and run. But Stoops doesn’t expect starting defensive end Ronnell Lewis, who has 51⁄2 sacks and 13 tackles for loss, to return after missing last week’s game due to a sprained ligament in his left knee. Lewis was hurt in the second quarter of the Baylor game, and Frank Alexander, the other starting defensive end, has been playing with a stinger in his left shoulder. “When somebody goes down, you’ve got to be able to keep moving and play for them and play through them — take a piece of how they used to play and go out there,” fellow defensive end R.J. Washington said. “Take a piece of Ronnell with you and play with it. You’ve got to play harder because we’re a couple people short.”

Sumlin deflects talk about his future HOUSTON (AP) — Houston coach Kevin Sumlin deflected questions about his future Tuesday, saying he’s had several conversations with athletic director Mack Rhoades about a contract extension. Sumlin is a hot commodity after guiding Houston to unprecedented heights in four seasons. The seventh-ranked Cougars (12-0, 8-0) can finish the program’s first undefeated season and likely land its first Bowl Championship Series berth with a victory in Saturday’s Conference USA championship game at home against No. 24 Southern Miss (10-2, 6-2). Sumlin’s current contract pays him a base salary of between $1 million and $1.2 million and runs through the 2015 season. “I’ve talked to Mack a couple of times, we’ve had a couple different discussions about a lot of things,” Sumlin said. “I’ve got a really

OU bracing for another air attack NORMAN, OKLA. (AP) — Oklahoma’s scorched secondary is about to get tested again. The 13th-ranked Sooners (9-2, 6-2 Big 12) gave up more than 450 yards passing to each of the top 10 passing teams they’ve faced this season, and they lost both times. Next up is a game Saturday night at No. 3 Oklahoma State (10-1, 7-1) and an offense that ranks second in the nation in passing behind quarterback Brandon Weeden and All-American receiver Justin Blackmon. “We need to be able to cover people, to be in the zones we’re supposed to be in — whether we’re zone or (man-to-man),” coach Bob Stoops said Tuesday. “We have to have some discipline and responsibility in where we’re going.” The Sooners were embar-

along the way. The Cougars lead the nation in total offense (613.3 yards per game), scoring (52.7 points per game) and passing yards (449.7 per game). They’ve scored at least 35 points in every game, and hit at least 56 in six victories. Current coaching vacancies include Mississippi, Illinois, UCLA and Arizona State, and more firings are inevitable. “Nobody has talked to me all year,” Sumlin said. “No one has contacted me from anywhere in the country about a coaching job anywhere. Even if they tried, at this point, I wouldn’t even talk to them. We’re in the middle of the season.” Rhoades acknowledged that he has talked to Sumlin about his future with Houston. “We’re going to continue to talk, as appropriate,” Rhoades said on Tuesday night.

Buckeyes dominate Duke The Associated Press

No. 2 Ohio State 85, No. 3 Duke 63 COLUMBUS, OHIO — Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski was asked about an Ohio State player and almost chuckled. “I wasn’t focused on each of their guys,” he said. “I was trying not to lose by 30.” It was that kind of night for the third-ranked Blue Devils. Jared Sullinger scored 21 points, and three teammates were close behind as Ohio State roared out to an 11-0 lead and never looked back in rolling to a victory Tuesday night in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge. Buckeyes fans chanted “overrated” at the Blue Devils in the final minute. NBA star LeBron James had a front-row seat for the rout, but he was booed loudly when he walked to his courtside seat with Miami Heat teammate Dwyane Wade. That was about the only time the fans expressed any dissatisfaction with anything on the court. “This basketball team is special,” Sullinger said. The Buckeyes (7-0) never trailed, weathering a Duke rally in the first half and then leading by 20 for most of the second half. “Sometimes you just get your butt kicked,” said Krzyzewski, who said his young team appeared tired. Austin Rivers had 22 points and Mason Plumlee 16 for the Blue Devils (7-1), coming off wins over ranked opponents Michigan and Kansas in their previous two games. William Buford scored 20, Deshaun Thomas 18 and Aaron Craft 17 for the Buckeyes, who gave the Big Ten a 4-2 edge in the conference matchups. Craft also had eight assists and five rebounds and was a terror on defense. Few would have expected such a lopsided result. Duke came in with a record of 11-1 in ACC/Big Ten games and had beaten its last five Big Ten opponents — including conference bullies Michigan State and Michigan already this season. The Blue Devils had also won their last four games in which both teams were ranked in the top five. It was a festive, rock-concert sort of a capacity crowd of 18,809 at Value City Arena for the game, which was billed as the biggest nonconference home game ever for Ohio State. DUKE (7-1) Mas.

DUKE’S MASON PLUMLEE, LEFT, DRIVES THE BASELINE against Ohio State’s Jared Sullinger. Second-ranked Ohio State rolled to an 85-63 victory over No. 3 Duke on Tuesday in Columbus, Ohio. No. 4 Syracuse 84, Eastern Michigan 48 SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Playing for the first time since assistant coach Bernie Fine was fired, Syracuse remained unbeaten with an easy victory over Eastern Michigan. Fine has been accused by three men of molesting them and was fired Sunday after 35-plus years on the bench next to coach Jim Boeheim. Fine has denied the allegations. James Southerland scored 19 points to match his career high for the Orange (7-0). Boeheim was greeted by a standing ovation when he walked onto the Carrier Dome court that bears his name. First-year Eastern Michigan coach Rob Murphy, an assistant for seven years under Boeheim, greeted the Hall of Famer with a warm hug, and Boeheim received another raucous cheer when he was introduced after the players. Then, it was back to basketball after a tumultuous weekend of new revelations in the investigation of child molestation allegations against Fine. Darrell Lampley led the Eagles (4-3) with 19 points.

Virginia 70, No. 14 Michigan 58 CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA. — Mike Scott had 18 points and 11 rebounds, and Virginia used a 19-2 run in the second half to take command in the Big Ten-ACC Challenge. The Cavaliers limited Michigan to 44 percent shooting, won the rebounding battle 36-26 and didn’t get careless with the ball as they had in previous games. They had eight turnovers, two after halftime. Joe Harris added 18 points as the Cavaliers (6-1) went from trailing 39-34 to leading 53-41 with 6:43 remaining. Harris’ floater sparked the burst.

Tar Heels facing tough stretch CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina lasted about three weeks at No. 1 before taking its first loss and seeing its best player hobbled by an ankle injury. Now things really get tough for the Tar Heels. With preseason All-American Harrison Barnes recovering from a sprained right ankle, fifth-ranked North Carolina hosts No. 9 Wisconsin tonight in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge. Then comes Saturday’s trip to Kentucky, which replaced the Tar Heels at No. 1 after their loss to UNLV over the weekend. UNC coach Roy Williams said Barnes missed Monday’s practice after rolling his ankle while chasing a loose ball in the first half against UNLV. He returned to play 30 minutes, though Williams didn’t sound certain that the 6-foot-8 forward would be ready for the Badgers. But the school said Barnes — the team’s top scorer at 17 points per game — “practiced fully” and “felt good” on Tuesday, putting him on track to play.

“I don’t like our fans to help the other team by either giving or selling their tickets.” He also referenced a North Carolina-North Carolina State game in 2002 when Wolfpack fans bought up plenty of seats in the Smith Center. Williams was coach at Kansas then as UNC lost to N.C. State on the way to an 8-20 season under Matt Doherty. “It’s something that’s always bothered me,” Williams said of home fans selling their tickets to opposing fans. “It will always bother me. A hundred years ago I’m watching in Lawrence, Kansas, and North Carolina’s playing North Carolina State and there were 5 million red shirts in the crowd. And if I’d had a BB gun, 5 million red shirts would have had a burned rear end because I just don’t like those kinds of things. “I mean, seriously. Do you guys like it when all the Internet people beat you on a story? I mean, that’s what it is. It’s competition. And if you were my friend, you are not going to help the competition.”

No. 7 Baylor 90, Prairie View 54 WACO, TEXAS — Perry Jones III and his Baylor teammates needed a few minutes to get comfortable with each other on the court in his delayed season debut. Once they did, Jones showed everybody why he was the preseason Big 12 player of the year. Jones scored 27 points on 10-of-14 shooting with some high-flying plays, and Bears overcame a sluggish start for a victory Tuesday night. They wrapped up a seasonopening six-game homestand undefeated. Prairie View (2-6) jumped out to an 11-2 lead with freshman Montrael Scott making three three-pointers in the first four minutes. “Like anybody, your first game or your first time out there, I think (Jones) was just trying to fit in and being a little tentative. I thought we all were,” Baylor coach Scott Drew said. “We were all over-passing and not being very aggressive. Prairie View knocked down some shots early and we dug a hole, but the good thing is as the game went on we got much better.” Jones, the 6-foot-11 sophomore, had to sit out the first five games to complete an NCAA suspension for accepting improper benefits before he got to Baylor. His six-game penalty included the Bears’ finale last season in the Big 12 tournament. The Panthers scored the game’s first eight points before Drew called a timeout. He had a message for Jones, who had been considered a potential NBA draft lottery pick last spring before deciding against being Baylor’s first one-and-done player. “Just be a beast. Just play like I know how to play and don’t be nervous out there,” said Jones, relaying what he was told during that first break. “Just play team ball and everything will click, and that’s exactly what happened.” Jones finally took his first shot after that, making a jumper. Then after Scott’s third 3-pointer, Baylor finally scored again on Fred Ellis’ alley-oop to Jones, who came along the baseline for the slam. “It’s always good to have the young fella playing with me,” said Quincy Acy, the senior who had 13 points and 11 rebounds. “He brings a different dimension to the game. He just changes the game in so many different ways.” The Bears went ahead to stay after Pierre Jackson’s bounce pass to Jones for a one-handed slam dunk that made it 17-16 midway through the first half. That was part of 16 consecutive points by Baylor in a 4-minute spurt when Jones scored nine points. Baylor has won all 42 games it has played against SWAC teams, including 12

against Prairie View (2-6). The Bears opened the season with consecutive wins over Texas Southern and Jackson State, also SWAC teams. The Bears reached their highest AP ranking ever after winning their first five games without Jones, who as a freshman averaged 13.9 points and 7.2 rebounds while making 55 percent of his shots. In his first game back, Jones had 16 points on 7-of-8 shooting by halftime. “The guys made me comfortable,” Jones said. “We came in a little sluggish at first, but we picked up the energy and it seemed to play just like it does in practice every day.” Jackson finished with 17 points and eight assists. Cory Jefferson had 12 points and Deuce Bello 10. Quincy Miller, the 6-9 freshman forward who led Baylor in scoring with 15.2 points a game the first five games, sat out as a precaution after rolling his left ankle in practice over the weekend. He is expected to play Sunday at Northwestern, when the Bears play their first non-conference road game in nearly two years.

Healthy eating just a few simple steps away Q:

I know that I need to eat healthier, but my busy work schedule makes that a challenge. What can I do?

Cooking Q&A


Long, extended, or irregular work hours and unpredictable work schedules definitely challenge us to make sound food choices. Yet healthy eating is vital to feeling and performing our best while on the job and can help to prevent many health issues. Some of the major challenges many of us experience when it comes to healthy eating are:

Having inconsistent eating patterns.

Not having access to healthy food choices.

Consuming too much food at one time.

Eating in a rush.

Snacking too frequently.

Eating when digestive processes have slowed down (in conflict with the body’s natural biological rhythm).

Consuming too much caffeine.

Having an eating schedule that differs from those in our social environment (eating alone).

Eating to stay awake or out of boredom.

Susan Krumm

help to increase alertness, maximize work performance, and create a better functioning body: 1.) Try to establish a normal meal schedule regardless of work hours. For most this means consuming 3 meals in a 24-hour period of time with a few snacks. 2.) Avoid foods high in simple sugars or avoid foods with added sugar. While candy, cookies, and even some snack bars may give you a quick burst of energy, these foods in the long run decrease alertness, decrease the ability to concentrate and also can lead to feelings of fatigue. Convenience foods such as those found in vending machines are often high in sugar and should be avoided. Here are some recommen3.) Avoid large meals and dations that were shared by foods high in unhealthy fats the Cooper Institute that may (found often in fast-foods

and take-out options) as they also tend to decrease alertness and lead to fatigue. Instead, break larger meals up into smaller portions and spread them out across the day. If your work requires you to work for 16-24 hours straight, break your food consumption up into even smaller, more frequent meals. The higher your energy need, the more frequent your eating should be but within the caloric intake that your body needs. 4.) Include protein foods in your meals and snacks. Digesting proteins increases your body temperature, which can help to increase alertness. If you work late at night, a snack with a little protein will provide sustained energy when fatigue hits. Examples of proteins include nuts and seeds, lean meats, fish, eggs, beans, lowfat dairy and tofu. 5.) Bring food from home. Because of the unpredictability of the work day, the lack of healthy options in the workplace and the need to eat on the go, packing healthy meals and snacks from home will make it easier to eat healthier on your shift. Utilize refrigerators, freezers, microwaves and toasters that may be found in your break room. 6.) Add color to your meals. Food variety supplies

‘Just water, please’ edges out other drinks in restaurants By Sylvia Rector Detroit Free Press

There’s no free lunch, they say. But for now, at least, a glass of water is free when we go out to eat — and increasingly, water is all we’re drinking. New market research from the Port Washington, N.Y.based NPD Group Inc. finds that basic tap water is one of the fastest-growing beverages ordered in restaurants. Tap water accounts for 10 percent of the 50 billion drink servings ordered in restaurants each year, says the company’s CREST service, which continually tracks what people order away from home. That translates into 1 in 10 restaurant guests not ordering an additional drink with their meal. Since 2006, with restaurant traffic down 1 percent, the total number of beverages ordered (other than tap water) has dropped 6 percent, a decline of 2.7 billion serv-

ings, while tap water servings have gone up 2.8 billion, the report says. The beverage categories taking the greatest hits were soft drinks and brewed coffee, which together represent almost half of all drinks served in restaurants. The poor economy and high jobless rates explain some of the decline in beverage sales, says report author Bonnie Riggs. But, she continues, “a key learning from this report is that much of the declines in beverage servings are tied to the price-value relationship the consumer perceives.” In other words, if customers see a cup of regular, garden-variety coffee priced at $3 — one that would cost literally pennies at home — they’re more willing to skip it at the restaurant. On the other hand, guests may be perfectly willing to pay $4 or even $5 for excellent coffee, beautifully served in a fine setting. Not all categories of bever-

age sales are declining, Riggs noted. Iced tea is growing, perhaps benefitting from the declines in soft drink sales that began even before the recession. Sales are also rising for newer, more specialized kinds of drinks such as smoothies, icy or slushy drinks, and specialty coffees, all of which are flooding the market at fast-food and casual-dining restaurant chains. Riggs says that U.S. beverage sales in restaurants will likely pick up again once the economy improves. However, she warns, “beverage providers will need to address consumers’ concerns and poor value perceptions to stem further losses.” By the time the economy gets better, though, more of us may have gotten over the vaguely uncomfortable feeling we have when the server asks what we want to drink, and we reply, “nothing.” The more you say “I’ll just have water,” the easier it gets.

Chili dog for chilliest time of year By J.M. Hirsch Associated Press Food Editor

Chili dogs generally are considered summer food. Which makes sense. Hot dogs tossed in a bun and slathered with chili and shredded cheese does tend to scream summer casual. But those flavors do go so nicely together, I wondered if there was a way to capture the spirit of the meal in a form better suited to fending off the chill of a winter night. In converting the recipe I saw no reason to mess around too much with the hot dog or chili topping. Why ruin with a good thing? So I instead focused on the starch. A bun just wasn’t going to cut it. I considered pasta, but that’s too close to Cincinnati chili (spaghetti topped with chili and cheese). Roasted potatoes were the right flavor, but wrong texture. Mashed, however, were just right. The resulting recipe oozes comfort and warmth.

Winter Chili Dogs Start to finish: 30 minutes Servings: 4 2 pounds Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and quartered 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter 1/2 cup milk Salt and ground black pepper 15-ounce can vegetarian baked beans 1 1/2 tablespoons tomato paste

different nutrients so including healthful choices in a variety of colors increases the nutritional value of your meal. 7.) Consume a light snack after work but before bed that consists of healthy carbohydrates. You can improve the quality of your sleep by not going to bed too full or too hungry. Carbohydrates increase serotonin, a brain chemical that promotes drowsiness, making them a nice choice. Examples of healthy carbohydrates include whole-grains such as whole-wheat bread and crackers, oatmeal, brown rice, bulgur, quinoa, fruits and vegetables. 8.) Cut down on caffeine. It is best to have caffeinated drinks before or early in your shift. Try to avoid caffeine at least four to five hours before going to sleep and limit consumption to three to four 6-ounce cups. Stimulants remain in your bloodstream for

up to 8 hours, so poorly timing caffeine consumption as well as consuming too much of it can interfere with your ability to sleep. 9.) Stay hydrated by consuming water or decaffeinated beverages. Dehydration can lead to feelings of fatigue. 10.) Time your meals according to the time of day, not your shift. Regardless of what time you get up, eat breakfast as this helps to stimulate your metabolism. Have your main meal in the middle of the day versus in the middle of your shift. 11.) Eat or drink something warm around midnight when working the night shift. Our body temperature naturally declines as this is normally our “rest time” and this can lead to feeling sleepy.

A: According to the American Association of Cereal Chemists International and the USDA, “malted or sprouted grains containing all of the original bran, germ and endosperm shall be considered whole grains as long as sprout growth does not exceed kernel length and nutrient values have not diminished. These grains should be labeled as malted or sprouted whole grain.” Health benefits may include:

Increased B vitamins, vitamin C, folate, fiber and essential amino acids.

Possible lower allergen sensitivity.

Brussels sprouts make sweet, tangy side dish By Susan M. Selasky Detroit Free Press

If you’re in a need of a quick side dish or want to try a new vegetable, give Brussels sprouts a try. Fall is the peak time for these tiny cabbages in the cruciferous family. Sometimes, Brussels sprouts get no respect. And that’s too bad. While some people sniff their noses at them — sometimes for good reason (more on that later) — they are not only tasty but pack a lot of nutrients in a small amount. According to the USDA, Brussels sprouts contain more than the daily requirements for vitamins K and C and are a good source of fiber and folate. They also contain phytochemicals, which are known to help prevent some diseases. At stores, you will see Brussels sprouts sold loose, in bags, on a stalk or frozen. The smaller ones tend to be sweeter and more tender. Choose ones that are about 1 1/2 inches in diameter with bright green leaves and no signs of decay, such as yellowish leaves. Fresh Brussels sprouts keep in the refrigerator in a paper bag for at least three days. Quick cooking is best for Brussels sprouts. If you overcook them, they release a sulfur odor — that smell that makes people turn up their noses. If they are undercooked, they can be bitter and tough. You can steam, roast or saute Brussels sprouts whole, halved or in quarters. To prepare them for cooking, rinse them in water. Trim the stems and remove the outer layer. Leave them whole, cut them in half or quarter them. In today’s recipe, the Brussels sprouts are pan sauteed and get a sweet and tangy flavor from balsamic vinegar. If you don’t want to buy pancetta (an Italian bacon cured with salt and spices but not smoked), use just about any thick-sliced bacon. Here are two easy Brussels sprout side dishes: Shred 1 3/4 pounds of Brussels sprouts using a food processor. Cook a few bacon slices until crisp. Remove from the pan and crumble. In the same skillet, saute 1/3 cup chopped onion until golden. Add 1/2 cup water, 2 tablespoons maple syrup and 1 tablespoon Dijon mus-


half an onion, a cup of frozen, whole-green beans, a half a cup of peas and a half a cup of corn. Add salt and pepper liberally and saute until everything is tender, but not mushy. Then I added the vegetables to the meat and stirred everything to combine. I dolloped some potatoes on top, probably about 3 cups or so, and then spread them out with the back of a large spoon. And then I pricked at the potatoes with a fork so they’d get some texture. That texture picks up brown nicely and gets a little crunchy. We likey the crunchy. Bake at 350 for 15 or 20 minutes, or until everything is warm through and slightly brown on top. So easy!

Curried Shepherd’s Pie 3 to 4 cups mashed pota-

tard. Add the shredded Brussels sprouts and cook about 5 minutes, stirring often. Steam 1 1/4 pounds of quartered Brussels sprouts until just tender, about 7 minutes. In a saucepan, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil or butter and saute 2 tablespoons of minced shallot for 2 minutes. Stir in 1 tablespoon flour. Whisk in 2/3 cup 1 percent milk and 2 tablespoons sherry and bring to a simmer while whisking. Reduce heat and cook until thickened. Remove from heat and stir in 1/3 cup shredded Parmesan cheese, salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste. (Recipe adapted from Eating Well magazine.)

Brussels Sprouts With Bacon And Balsamic Vinegar Serve these with simple broiled turkey medallions. 4 slices pancetta or thicksliced bacon, cut into small pieces 1 1/4 pounds Brussels sprouts, outer leaves removed and ends trimmed 2 to 3 tablespoons sherry or water 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste Slivered almonds, optional In a large skillet, cook the pancetta or bacon pieces until they are crisp. While the pancetta cooks, rinse the Brussels sprouts under water . Remove the bacon and drain on a paper towel. Discard the bacon fat and wipe out the skillet. Cut the Brussels sprouts in half or quarters. Add the Brussels sprouts in the skillet the bacon was cooked in and begin to saute over medium heat until they start to slightly brown, sprinkling them with the sherry or water so they don’t stick, about 5 minutes. Drizzle the Brussels sprouts with balsamic vinegar and continue sauteing until the sprouts are just tender, about 5 to 6 minutes more. Season with freshly ground black pepper and top with slivered almonds if desired. From and tested by Susan M.

The 12 days of cookies: Holiday treats inspired by classic desserts The German chocolate cookie By Alison Ladman For The Associated Press

Editor’s note: The Associated Press is offering a series to celebrate the holidays with 12 days of cookies, each inspired by a different classic dessert. A purely American invention, German chocolate cake starts with a sweet chocolate cake, then is filled with a caramel-coconut-pecan concoction. We transformed this luscious cake into sandwich cookies. Starting with a sweet and soft chocolate cookie, we filled it with a gooey coconut filling and rolled the sides in toasted pecans.

German Chocolate Sandwich Cookies Start to finish: 1 hour Makes 2 dozen cookies For the cookies: 1/2 cup cocoa powder 3 cups all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 teaspoon salt 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter

2 cups packed brown sugar 2 eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla extract 3/4 cup milk For the filling: Two 14-ounce cans sweetened condensed milk 3 cups unsweetened shredded coconut 1 cup finely chopped toasted pecans Heat the oven to 350 F. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper. In a large bowl, sift together the cocoa powder, flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside. In a second large bowl, use an electric mixer on mediumhigh to beat together the butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, scraping the bowl after each addition. Stir in the vanilla. Add half of the flour mixture, stirring to combine. Add the milk, scraping the bowl to ensure even mixing. Add the second half of the flour mixture, again scraping the bowl. Working in batches, drop the dough by the tablespoonful onto the prepared baking sheets, leaving 2 inches between each for spreading. Bake for 12 to 15

minutes, or until slightly firm to the touch. Allow to cool on the baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining dough. Meanwhile, make the filling. In a large skillet over medium heat, combine the sweetened condensed milk and the coconut. Heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture starts to pull away from the pan and will hold a line when you drag your spoon through it, 8 to 10 minutes. Allow to cool slightly. Place the pecans in a shallow bowl or pie pan. Spread a spoonful of the coconut mixture onto the flat side of 1 cooled cookie. Top with another cookie, flat side down, to form a sandwich. Roll the edges of the sandwich cookie in the chopped pecans. Store in an airtight container between sheets of waxed paper.

Grasshopper pie — a cookie crumb pie crust filled with mint chocolate chip ice cream and topped with fudge — is a diner classic. To transform this into a cookie, we flavored a chewy chocolate cookie with mint extract, studded it with chocolate mint candies, and drizzled it with a mint icing.

extract, divided 4.67-ounce box Andes Creme de Menthe Thins candies, broken into chunks 1 cup powdered sugar 1 tablespoon milk or cream 2 tablespoon green sugar or sprinkles In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside. In a large microwave-safe bowl, combine the chocolate and butter. Heat on high for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring every 20 seconds, until smooth and completely melted. Whisk in the eggs, one at a time, then the brown and granulated sugars. Add 1 teaspoon of the peppermint extract. Stir in the flour mixture, then the chocolate mint candies. Refrigerate the dough until completely chilled, about 2 hours. Heat the oven to 350 F. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper or spray with cooking spray. Scoop the cookie dough by the tablespoonful onto

the prepared baking sheets, leaving 2 inches between for spreading. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until set up. Allow to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before using a spatula to transfer to a rack to cool completely. In a small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, milk or cream, and the remaining 1 teaspoon peppermint extract. Additional milk or cream can be added if the mixture is too thick to drizzle. Drizzle the icing over the surface of the cookies and immediately sprinkle with green sugar or sprinkles. Allow the icing to harden before storing in an airtight container between sheets of waxed paper.

If a spirit was going to be distilled in New Orleans, it wouldn’t be gin. Too hoitytoity. Vodka would be too boring. Whiskey? Its Southern neighbors already do that, and New Orleans copies no one. Which leaves rum — a party drink for a party town, if ever there was one. No surprise, then, that the home of joie de vivre is also the home of Old New Orleans Rum.

THIS CHOCOLATE COOKIE is flavored with mint extract, studded with chocolate mint candies, and drizzled with a mint icing.

The red velvet cake cookie By Alison Ladman For The Associated Press

Red velvet cake has long been a favorite of Southern cooks. But in recent years it has become a popular treat across the country. Taking our inspiration from both red velvet cake and red hot cinnamon candies, we combined the two in a meltaway-style cookie that crumbles and melts in your mouth. And following red velvet cake tradition, we topped each cookie with a little cream cheese icing, which pairs perfectly with the cinnamon bite.

You can make this with almost whatever you have. Leftover green bean casserole? Throw it in there! Creamed corn would be good, and so would sweet potatoes on top. Be creative — this is definitely a “kitchen sink” sort of casserole. I enjoy the curry flavor in it as it sort of brings a little something Red Hot Velvet new to the table.

New Orleans manufactures three rums for its 10-state distribution zone — Crystal (best suited for cocktails), Cajun Spice and Amber, a three-year aged version. “Louisiana is famous for growing sugar cane, drinking and having a good time, and no one was making anything out of it,” said Parker Schonekas, general manager of Old New Orleans Rum. “No one was taking it from the raw step to the finished product.” As with much of New Orleans, the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina was a major

Set aside. In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat together the granulated sugar, butter, food coloring, cinnamon extract and ground cinnamon just until creamy and well combined. Stir in the flour mixture, then refrigerate the dough until chilled, about 1 hour. Heat the oven to 350 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Roll the chilled dough into balls the size of a large marble.

Slightly flatten each ball to a disc about 1/4 inch thick. Arrange the cookies on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until set. These cookies should not brown or spread, and will be quite fragile. Allow to cool on the baking sheet. To make the frosting, use an electric mixer to beat together the cream cheese, butter and powdered sugar until smooth and creamy.

Old New Orleans Rum captures spirit of hometown By Josh Noel

blow to Old New Orleans; eight feet of water flooded the distillery, which was built as a cotton warehouse in the 1880s. A limited edition 10year aged rum available at the distillery spent several days floating in Katrina water. “You see the waterline eight feet above your head in the cypress columns,” Schonekas said. “Every time I tell the story I have an image of the barrels floating in the water. It just seems crazy to me.” The rum — like the city and its spirit — endures.

Try them Crystal: Remarkably hearty for clear rum, has creamy sweetness and heavy vanilla. A fine cocktail ingredient, but almost a sipper unto itself. Cajun Spice: Such novelty could easily have become an overdone gimmick, but this isn’t. It has a smooth, buttery spice with no single dominant flavor beyond a light cayenne essence. Amber: Aged for three years in bourbon barrels, this lightly oaky dark rum brings heat to its sweetness. It works in a cocktail or with just an ice cube.

Shepherd leftovers into a tasty dish

CLARK FULTON HAS PUT IN COUNTLESS HOURS transforming bread and gingerbread into an ornate Victorian-style home for this year’s Gingerbread House Festival and Auction. Fulton got the idea for his house off the Internet months ago. The festival is a benefit for Big Brother Big Sisters of Douglas County.

Gingerbread Festival celebrates the visual confection By Sarah Henning

They look like a dream, sitting there under the glow of admiring bidders each year at the annual Gingerbread House Festival and Auction benefiting Big Brothers Big Sisters of Douglas County. But those gingerbread structures are a very real task — no dreaming on the job. Those whimsical cottages and stunning recreations of real buildings take hours upon hours of work. Architects must design, plan, bake and assemble contest entries on their own time. Much of the trade is honed on the Internet and through the college of trial and error. That said, if you have designs on making your own gingerbread house as a holiday decoration, it’s a perfectly plausible holiday project, say a handful of repeat auction competitors — no kit needed.

The pieces and parts Gingerbread houses are technically edible, though chances are they wouldn’t taste very good if you were to chomp through a roof or chimney. All you need to create one of your own can be found in your kitchen, save for a sturdy base (unless you want to give up a cutting board) says Allen Blair, a Lawrence resident and chef at Shadow Glen Golf Club in Olathe. Blair has been donating gingerbread houses for 12 years and just taught a class, “Gingerbread 101” at Shadow Glen. His take on the pieces and parts: Gingerbread: Find a really tough gingerbread recipe — if you get it right, you won’t want to taste-test it for fear it might crack a tooth. “We fight humidity here in the Midwest and so there were years were I’d build walls and they

would be sagging because they’d be really wet and damp,” he says. “It took me a while to find a humidity-proof gingerbread that pretty much works — the walls are as hard as a rock.” Royal icing: If you think of your gingerbread pieces as building blocks, this is your cement. “The icing is also the key ingredient because that’s what glues it all together and makes it bond,” says Blair who prefers a royal icing that contains powdered sugar, meringue powder and water.

re you sick of Thanksgiving food yet? We were. On Sunday, we happily ate bar food in Valley Falls after cutting down a wild Christmas tree on our friends’ land. A greasy burger and fried mushroom never tasted so good. But still, those leftovers linger in our refrigerator and let’s face it: there’s NO WAY I’m letting it go to waste, sick as we may be of the stuff. Repurpose it, I will. One great way to use up the lurking leftovers is to make shepherd’s pie. It’s good for using up leftover vegetables, leftover mashed potatoes, heck, you could probably throw some turkey in there. I didn’t have any turkey to throw in, because I didn’t cook a turkey this year. That’s right, we had cornish game hens for Thanksgiving. I am such a rebel. We like our shepherd’s pie with ground beef, although you could sub with lamb or even turkey — why not? So I began by browning 2 pounds of ground beef with two teaspoons of salt, and then draining off the fat. Then I mixed in a tablespoon of curry powder and a teaspoon of seasoning salt, and put the meat in a casserole dish. Next, I used some remaining grease from the hamburger to saute vegetables. I started with a half a cup of carrots (because they take longer than everything else), and as they grew tender I added in a clove of minced garlic, Please see FORK, page 9B

the parents voluntarily allow this? That would be the easiest way to do it. Discuss your options with an attorney who specializes in family law. You can get referrals for low-cost legal assistance through LawHelp California ( Dear Annie: We work in an office where the employees (mostly the female employees) bring treats — candy or homemade goodies — on a regular basis. This always has been a nice gesture and much appreciated. The problem is a new employee who doesn’t seem to understand the concept of taking your share and no more. “Vern” is the first one at your desk if he notices candy. Then he keeps coming back over and over again, taking large quantities on each trip. Those treats are for everyone. Vern is really a nice man in so many ways, but we are

‘Daughter’ will feel the hate of critics A laugh track-driven multi-camera throwback, “I Hate My Teenage Daughter” (8:30 p.m., Fox) substitutes unoriginal, mean-spirited one-liners for any conversation resembling human interaction. Jaime Pressly, who was so brilliantly cast in “My Name Is Earl” as a sharp, self-absorbed survivor, goes against type here as Annie, a survivor of a strict religious upbringing who allows her brat of a daughter, Sophie (Kristi Lauren), to run wild, dress like a tramp and upbraid her with cruel taunts. You wait for her old “Earl” character to emerge and start slapping the ungrateful girl, but, alas, you will wait in vain. Annie’s best friend and wacky neighbor, Nikki (Katie Finneran), was a fat outcast in high school and is similarly insecure. She acts like an emotional doormat around her mean-teen daughter, Mackenzie (Aisha Dee). In short, both women have spoiled their kids and have re-created the kinds of kids who taunted them in high school. Where does a show go from here? ‘‘Hate” arrives just in time for critics to include it on their “Worst of 2011” lists. And it may give “The Paul Reiser Show” a run for its money as the worst new show of the year. O “The Exes” (9:30 p.m., TV Land) follows in that network’s tradition of recycling stars of familiar series and placing them in comfortably predictable situations. See: “Hot in Cleveland” (9 p.m., TV Land). Kristen Johnston (“3rd Rock”) portrays Holly, a socially insecure divorce lawyer who serves as a kind of den mother for her sad male clients, allowing them to rent an apartment she owns after they’ve lost their houses in their settlements. Her tenants include the womanizing Phil (Donald Faison, “Scrubs”) and shy nerd Haskell (Wayne Knight, “Seinfeld”). Into their lives walks series star Stuart (David Alan Basche), a super-fussy, hyperemotional ex-husband who is supposed to remind us of Felix Unger in the way this show is supposed to be a new version of the “Odd Couple” — make it the “Odd Triple.”

Tonight’s other highlights O Tony Bennett headlines a crowded hour of talent on the 14th annual “Christmas in Rockefeller Center” special (7 p.m., NBC). O The top seven perform on “The X Factor” (7 p.m., Fox). O Kermit and pals star in the 2008 special “A Muppets Christmas” (7 p.m., CW). O “Trek Nation” (7 p.m., Science) examines the legacy of Gene Rodenberry. O Participants in a football riot end up in court on “Harry’s Law” (8 p.m., NBC). O Phil takes Haley to visit his alma mater on “Modern Family” (8 p.m., ABC). O “The Grammy Nominations Concert Live!!” (9 p.m., CBS). O A boy from a secretive community vanishes on “Law & Order: SVU” (9 p.m., NBC). O Scandal leaves the Graysons reeling on “Revenge” (9 p.m., ABC). O A visit from a historically significant murder victim on “American Horror Story” (9 p.m., FX).

about ready to discontinue bringing treats to the office because this is so frustrating. One of the employees made special homemade treats for her boss on his birthday, and Vern stood at her desk to get his share before anyone else, and then returned for a second helping before others had their first. No one wants to hurt Vern’s feelings, and he doesn’t seem to get the hint when comments are made to others in his presence. Do you have any suggestions about how to handle this? We hate to see a nice tradition ruined because the goodies

can no longer be shared with everyone. — Didn’t Take This Guy To Raise Dear Didn’t: Someone needs to speak up. If Vern returns for seconds before others have had a turn, say, “A lot of folks haven’t had any treats yet, Vern, so no second helpings until everyone has had one.” If he takes six cupcakes, stop him, saying, “Sorry, Vern, only one per customer.” Be nice, firm and consistent. We don’t think it will take much to retrain the guy, so please give him a chance before you eliminate something that all of you obviously enjoy a great deal.

Dear Annie: We are the grandparents of a beautiful 4-year-old girl. We have been watching her for the past three months because her parents had their water service shut off because of lack of payment. A month ago, they had their gas and electricity shut off, as well. They are living off the welfare system with no other means of support. In the past, my wife and I have paid a lot of money to keep their utilities on, but this time we took a stand and decided not to. Instead, we opted to assist in taking care of their daughter until they can fix this situation, knowing it will probably happen again. We want our granddaughter to have a shot at normalcy, and we feel she will never get that if we return her to her parents. Unfortunately, my wife and I lack both the finances to raise a child and the vitality necessary to keep up with her. We don’t know what to do. If we decide to seek custody, how do we go about it? Is there financial aid available for people in our situation? We want to do the right thing for our granddaughter. — Geezer with a Cause in Los Angeles Dear Los Angeles: Instead of seeking custody, you might want to apply for legal guardianship of your granddaughter or become her foster parents.
