Analyst: Meat will cost more next year

KU volleyball success: Fans can dig it


Consumers could see up to 8% increase By Roxana Hegeman Associated Press

WICHITA — Consumers can expect to pay 5 percent to 8 percent more at the meat counter next year regardless of whether they put beef, pork or chicken into their grocery carts, a market analyst said Friday. Randy Blach, vice president for CattleFax, told nearly a thousand cattle producers attending the 100th convention of the Kansas Livestock Association that consumer meat prices will rise to record highs because livestock production has fallen dramatically after ranchers culled animals during this year’s drought. Ranchers sold livestock they couldn’t afford to feed after the drought dried up pastures, cut hay production and drove up the price of corn and other feedstuffs. The market analyst said roughly 70 percent of the nation’s cattle herd has been affected by drought this year, the fourth in a row with drought in at least some key cattle-producing areas. This year’s drought, which covered two-thirds of the nation at one point, has been among the worst in 100 years, he said. The culling is slowing now, but Blach estimated that the nation’s herd will be down by 1 million cattle by the time the government releases its semi-annual cattle inventory in January. The cattle inventory is the smallest it has been since 1958; however beef production has doubled since then, Blach said. That is because the nation has over the years been slaughtering heavier animals. Once ranchers eventually begin rebuilding herds, it won’t take as many animals to produce the same amount of beef. He predicted at least one major meatpacking plant and several feedlots will likely shut down as slaughter numbers continue to decline. “We have a lot of excess feeding capacity, we have a lot of excess packing capacity. We will likely see some closures start within the next 12 months,” Blach said. “And that is never good because once you start seeing them close, and it is always, Please see MEAT, page 2A

Supporters cheer on team at Allen Fieldhouse during opening-round NCAA tourney victory By Adam Strunk

Having made almost every Kansas University volleyball home game in her time at KU, sophomore Allison Hammond, of Overland Park, would probably qualify as a die-hard fan. So when the team is playing in the NCAA tournament at Allen

Fieldhouse, there’s no way she’s going to miss it. “It’s really exciting,” Hammond said between yells as the volleyball team defeated Cleveland State on Friday night in four sets. The crowd of about 3,500 in Allen Fieldhouse did its best to rock the old barn, clapping along with the fight song and rising and

yelling for each set point. The band was on hand to pump up the crowd, and the volleyball team even got in the mix with an impromptu dance between matches to the song “Gangnam Style.” Hammond did her fair share to encourage the team, recruiting a number of friends to fill the front row and wave signs urging them on.

“Volleyball isn’t as popular so people don’t want to go to the matches, but I think our team deserves our support because they are really good,” she said. Please see FANS, page 2A

KU making progress on accessibility for disabled students “

By Matt Erickson

ONLINE: See the ADA task force’s report at

Kansas University’s progress on making its campus accessible for students with disabilities can be measured in numbers. For instance, so far it has checked off 21 of 49 accessibility recommendations made last year by a KU task force. But student Elizabeth Boresow said she can also see it in a shift in attitude

Accessibility isn’t something that changes completely overnight, but we’ve had some major victories.” — Jamie Simpson, KU director of accessibility and Americans with Disabilities Act education during her five years at KU. “There was an attitude of, ‘We don’t want to deal with disability, and we don’t have to unless they make us,’” Boresow said. Now, she says, things are different. A sign on

her dorm room that once labeled it with the negatively charged word “handicapped” now uses the more positive “accessible.” Boresow, who has autism, lives there with a roommate who has a visual impairment.

The university has involved students in decision-making on accessibility. There’s an administrator dedicated to accessibility issues who is a phone call or email away for any student. “I would say things are overwhelmingly more positive,” said Boresow, who helps advocate for accessibility as a member of the student group Ablehawks and Allies. The new helper is Jamie Simpson, the university’s director of accessibility

LAWRENCE CITY COMMISSION Agenda highlights • 6:35 p.m. Tuesday • City Hall, Sixth and Massachusetts streets • Knology Channel 25 • Meeting documents online at

City to mull turn, bike lanes BOTTOM LINE City commissioners will hear various proposals for how to add a center turn lane and bike lanes to Ninth Street between Tennessee and Kentucky streets.

BACKGROUND The proposed design has been contentious because it would remove on-street parking spaces in front of the law office of Lawrence attorney Todd Thompson. After hearing concerns, city engineers have come back with alternate designs that allow for some parking to remain, but one eliminates the eastbound bike lane, and the designs add $16,000 to $30,000 to the cost of the project.

OTHER BUSINESS Consent agenda

• Approve City Commission meeting minutes from Nov. 20 and amended City Commission meeting minutes from Nov. 13. • Receive minutes from boards and commissions. • Approve claims. • Bid and purchase items: a. Approve purchase of computer hardware and software for the Lawrence Police Department from Eaglesoft for $31,861 for hardware and $4,800 for software. • Adopt ordinances on second and final reading: a. Authorizing the codification of ordinances of the city, Jan. 1, 2013, edition. b. Annexing about 90 acres east of Kansas Highway 10 and north of Sixth Street adjacent to Baldwin Creek City Park, generally bounded by East 902 Road on the west and George Williams Way extended on the east. • Receive update on the status of a special-use permit for the Lawrence Community Shelter, 214 W. 10th St./944 Kentucky St. • Concur with these Traffic Safety Commission recommendations: a. Install a pedestrian hybrid beacon on Connecticut Street at 10th Street when funding allows, and authorize the submission of a Community Development Block Grant application for funding of this project. b. Establish a mid-block crosswalk on Kasold Drive between 27th Street and 28th Street and to the list of future projects a pedestrian hybrid beacon. c. Deny the request for a stop sign on St. Andrews Drive at Tam O’Shanter Drive. • Authorize city manager to sign a Long Term Care Agreement and pay a one-time lump sum of $50,345 to the Kansas Department of Health and Environment for associ-

Any request to authorize the execution of a successfully negotiated contract would be withheld until the City Commission’s approval of the required funding for the project. • Approve city park at 19th and Haskell streets to be named “Firefighter’s Remembrance Park” with “dedicated in honor of Jim McSwain, Chief 1979-2005” included on the sign. • Receive request from Outside for a Better Inside for city maintenance agreement for proposed walking trail as part of Bert Nash project; refer to staff for report and preparation of agreement. • Authorize the city manager to sign a lease agreement with 720, LLC for the lease of 720 E. Ninth St., No. 2, for $30,375, for use as a storage facility for the Lawrence Public Library during construction at the current library site. • Authorize the mayor to sign a subordination agreement for James and Patrice Krause, 1409 New Jersey St.

Regular agenda

• Consider authorizing the mayor to execute an agreement with the Kansas Department of Transportation for the Ninth Street—Tennessee Street to Kentucky Street improvements and consider adopting an ordinance on first reading establishing no parking along the south side of Ninth Street from Tennessee Street to Kentucky Street. • Direct staff concerning the 2013 Legislative Priority Statement.

Annika Carlson, an eighth-grader from Overland Park, was using the matches to improve her game. “I’m watching the setters because I’m a setter,” she explained. “It’s fun to watch because we like KU.” And for season-ticket holder Judy Lebestky, the match was something fun to do while the men’s basketball team scraped out a victory down the road at the Sprint Center in Kansas City, Mo. “The dives are pretty exciting,” Lebestky said. “I like it when they do that. I think it’s great.”

A CattleFax analysis indicates cattle producers could lose as much as $200 a head in value because consumer demand will fall if Congress does not avoid the fiscal cliff. “They need to get this thing resolved because it could have some major implications to our business,” Blach said.



Governor’s aide gets new look for appellate court By John Hanna Associated Press

TOPEKA — A state commission interviewed Gov. Sam Brownback’s top attorney Friday for a seat on the Kansas Court of Appeals, with fellow conservative Republicans watching closely to see how well he fares with a panel they consider moderate or left-leaning. Caleb Stegall, the governor’s chief counsel, was among nine candidates interviewed by the statewide nominating commission before it began private discussions COURTS about picking finalists. Also interviewed Friday was Sedgwick County District Court Judge Tony Powell, a former Kansas House member who was an anti-abortion leader as a legislator. Stegall and Powell were among 20 applicants who also interviewed for an earlier vacancy on the state’s second-highest court but were passed over. The same 20 candidates applied for a second vacancy, along with five other people, prompting the commission to have a round of interviews with the new applicants and call-backs for four previous ones, including Stegall. Conservative Republican legislators, activists and their political allies have complained for years that the commission is dominated by lawyers who tend to favor moderate and left-of-center attorneys with ties to the

legal establishment. The Legislature has no role in the selection of Court of Appeals judges and Supreme Court justices, and voters determine whether they stay on the bench. During interviews Friday, commission members concentrated on applicants’ careers, their perceived strengths and what they’d learned from observing other judges. Several members stressed that the commission has many strong candidates. “We’ve got a very difficult job here,” said commission member Matthew Keenan, a Leawood attorney. The governor has pushed unsuccessfully to change state law to have the governor appoint Court of Appeals judges, subject to confirmation by the state Senate. Legislators expect the proposal to be debated next year, though some favor electing judges. The process for selecting Supreme Court justices is spelled out in the Kansas Constitution, requiring two-thirds majorities in the House and Senate and approval in a statewide election for a change. Backers argue that the current process removes partisan politics from judicial appointments. But conservatives who believe Stegall and Powell are well-qualified for the court say how well the two fare will reflect the system’s openness to conservative candidates. Stegall, who’s been a lawyer for 13 years, faced questions about his experience. Commission

member Natalie Haag of Topeka, who served as Republican Gov. Bill Graves’ chief counsel, noted other candidates have been attorneys twice as long. But the former Jefferson County prosecutor said he’s had broad experience with complex civil and criminal cases, and said the commission shouldn’t decide on candidates by “simply counting up the number of years they’ve held a law license.” Stegall’s letters of recommendations included ones from the state’s current and previous attorneys general, a Republican and a Democrat. Stegall also said he easily can separate the work he’s now doing for Brownback from the work he would do in reviewing appeals, just as attorneys represent clients with diverse interests. “That may be one of the most fundamental things lawyers learn how to do,” he said. The first vacancy on the 13-member court was created by Judge Christel Marquardt’s announced plans to retire in January. The finalists for her position are Stevens County District Judge Kim Schroeder; Steven J. Obermeier, senior deputy district attorney in Johnson County; and Teresa Watson, a Topeka lawyer who’s served as a research attorney for the state’s appellate courts. Brownback has until Jan. 14 to pick one. The other vacancy arises from the October death of Chief Judge Richard Greene. Once the commission names finalists, Brownback will have two months to act. 645 N.H. (News Center) Lawrence, KS 66044 (785) 843-1000 • (800) 578-8748

mester required staff to locate rooms somewhere that would work. The parking and transit office has placed stickers on 500 accessible parkingspot signs across campus to replace the word “handicapped” — a term fraught with historical connotations of pity — with the more positive “accessible parking.” “That is a small thing, but it makes a difference,” Simpson said. Simpson and other KU staff also asked campus vending machine providers about complying with new ADA standards related to the reach range for people who use wheelchairs. The new standards dictate that anything a person might need to reach should sit between 15 and 48 inches off the floor. Buttons and cardswipers on KU’s campus machines sometimes are as high as 66 inches. The vending machine providers answered the call, and KU is now the first institution in the country to receive new Coca-Cola machines designed to meet those specifications. “The accessible vending machines — you can do that on your own, without having to ask someone, a stranger, for help,” Simpson said. KU offices’ Web presences are also becoming more accessible. KU’s Information Technology office is requiring KU entities to switch their Web pages to a new content-management system designed to aid screen-reader programs used by Internet users with visual impairments.

not yet fulfilled, there’s still a ways to go. Among the items still on the to-do list are two more full-time assistants, additional staff training and proposed changes in paratransit programs. One step that’s in progress but not yet completed is an effort to map routes through campus that avoid the use of stairs. Such routes can get complicated on KU’s hilly campus: The route from Jayhawk Boulevard at the top of Mount Oread down to Sunnyside Avenue below requires one to move through five buildings and ride three different elevators. Eventually, Simpson said, signs will be posted throughout those routes to guide people not yet familiar with the campus. “We can’t change the topography of this campus,” Simpson said. “We can’t raze the hills. But we can make it easier for people to know how they can get to where they need to go in a way that does not include stairs.” Boresow said the biggest change for her was the introduction of Simpson’s position. Now there’s one place for students with disabilities to go with a question or concern. She noted that the university even allowed members of the Ablehawks student group to take part in the hiring process. “In a big university, you get sent everywhere, and you find yourself going in circles without anything happening,” Boresow said, “and she’s sort of making sure that doesn’t happen.”

and Americans with Disabilities Act education, who was hired in March. In July 2011, a task force on ADA compliance gave Provost Jeff Vitter a report with 49 recommendations for making the campus more accessible. An update this September listed 21 of those steps as complete. “Accessibility isn’t something that changes completely overnight,” Simpson said, “but we’ve had some major victories.” The steps address facets of campus life ranging from tests and classroom instruction to vending machines and language on campus signs. Simpson helped to provide faculty and staff with training on how to accommodate students with disabilities in their classes. It included videos, Simpson said, of students talking with faculty about how such things help them. “The students just got their chance to say an accommodation isn’t an advantage,” Simpson said. “It’s really just a way to even the playing field.” Another campus office, the Academic Achievement and Access Center, has reserved a room in Strong Hall this semester for students with a need for reduced distraction, additional time or other accommodations while taking tests. It includes furniture designed for students who use wheelchairs, as well.

Stakes are high in the current federal tax debate By Dolph C. Simons Jr.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lame duckâ&#x20AC;? legislative sessions, facing tight time deadlines, whether at the state or national level, do not provide the best political environment in which to conduct serious discussions or shape long-lasting laws and policies. Those serving in the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate have known for years that if the 2001 and 2003 federal tax provisions are not extended and a variety of other tax provisions are allowed to lapse, the nation and most of its citizens face the likelihood of plunging over a â&#x20AC;&#x153;fiscal cliff.â&#x20AC;? According to the Tax Policy Center, a joint venture of the Brookings Institution and Urban Institute, 90 percent of American households will face higher taxes in 2013 if Congress and President Obama are not able to agree on a deficit reduction plan. Tax increases are scheduled to come about because the various tax cuts were approved on a temporary basis due to end on Jan. 2, 2013, roughly four weeks from now.

The American public, as well as the welfare of the nation itself, now are in the middle of a massive political game with President Obama, a number of Democratic senators playing hardball and the Republicancontrolled House. The debt crisis and how to keep the economy afloat are the critical issues. Obama and his fellow Democrats say the first step in trying to solve the problem is to raise taxes. Republicans say they, too, want to help bring about a solution, but that if taxes are to be raised, there must be an even greater level of cuts in federal spending to make a meaningful dent in the growing national debt. Democrats say tax hikes must be approved this year and that any cuts in federal entitlement programs will be put off until sometime next year. Republicans say â&#x20AC;&#x153;no wayâ&#x20AC;? and that federal spending cuts must be detailed before they OK tax hikes. Neither side wants to budge, although all lawmakers realize they must take reasoned, positive action to avert a very serious situation. The big question

is whether this â&#x20AC;&#x153;serious situationâ&#x20AC;? is sufficiently serious to force the various players to cut a deal that meets opposing viewpoints somewhere in the middle. Unfortunately, this all is taking place after a heated presidential campaign, and the fallout from the election certainly is playing a big role.

COMMENTARY Obama and his followers in the Senate won the White House for another four years and retained their majority in the Senate. To the winner belong the spoils, and they see no reason they should have to compromise on how they intend to avoid falling off the fiscal cliff. They want tax hikes now and say they will consider spending cuts next year. Republicans still control the House and, due to Obama failing to measure up on many promises and pledges he made in his 2008 election bid, along with the adamant stance of 30 or more Democratic senators






saying they will not agree to any cuts in major federal entitlement spending programs, it is difficult for GOP House members to agree to tax increases at this time and accept a goodfaith proposal by Democrats to consider spending cuts next year. Some might fear the Democrats offer a bait-and-switch proposal. Others might suggest Obama believes this is the time to force the issue and, in the process, crumble any GOP unity in the House. Also, the manner in which Democrats are staging this battle could be a tip-off to how they intend to conduct affairs for the next four years in partisan legislative battles and the use of executive power. If Obama is able to split the GOP in this debate, there is every reason to believe he will intensify efforts in future contentious legislative negotiations. He has said he intends to change America and obviously plans to follow through on this pledge. He is on the attack on the tax hike issue, scheduling campaign-style stops around the country to rally support for

the Democratic plan and urging citizens to flood the offices of GOP lawmakers with calls for them to approve his tax plan. Now is not the time to play chicken or see which side is the first to blink. Granted, Obama won the presidency and, again, to the victor belong the spoils, but there are times when it seems much more can be accomplished when a winner tries to come close to meeting the wishes of those who didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t win. Such an approach often pays off in the long run and for the benefit of all parties. It will be interesting to see whether Democrats continue to try to win a knuckles-down arm wrestling contest or offer a genuine compromise that is best for the country. Unfortunately, it appears the game rules have been set by Obama, Sen. Harry Reid, Rep. Nancy Pelosi and the 30 hardcore Democrats who say they will not budge on any entitlement cuts. Once more, to the victor belong the spoils, but consider what the â&#x20AC;&#x153;spoilsâ&#x20AC;? may be in this case.

Mo. lottery winners want to live normally By Maria Sudekum Associated Press

DEARBORN, MO. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; To announce one of the biggest events of their lives together, Cindy and Mark Hill returned to the place where it all began â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the high school where they became sweethearts in the 1970s. Surrounded by family and friends, the two were introduced Friday as winners in this weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s huge Powerball lottery â&#x20AC;&#x201D; an extraordinary stroke of luck that gives them half of the $588 million jackpot. The nostalgic high school homecoming seemed to reflect the coupleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hopes of staying true to their roots and living simply, at least as simply as possible for winners of one of the biggest lottery prizes in history. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will still be going down to the corner cafe for breakfast or fish day. I can guarantee you,â&#x20AC;? Cindy Hill said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You know itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just us. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just normal human beings. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re as common as anybody. We just have a little bit more money.â&#x20AC;? The Hills, who have three grown sons and a 6-year-old daughter, said they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t play the lottery regularly. They spent $10 on five tickets with random numbers. The result: After taxes, they will take home a lump sum of $136.5 million. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still stunned by whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happened,â&#x20AC;? said Hill, a former office manager who was laid off in 2010. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s surreal.â&#x20AC;?

MARK AND CINDY HILL HOLD A POWERBALL CHECK Friday with three of their four children, from left, Jarod, Cody and 6-year-old Jaiden in Dearborn, Mo. et was sold in Fountain Hills, Ariz., near Phoenix. No one has come forward with it yet, lottery officials said. Joining the Hills at the news conference were their children, with the youngest, Jaiden, sitting on her fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lap clutching a black stuffed horse. She was adopted from China five years ago. When asked what she wanted for Christmas, the little girl said simply: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pony.â&#x20AC;? Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s news conference made official what just about everyone in the town of 500 north of Kansas City already knew, thanks in part to a Facebook posting by Mark Hill, said their son Cody. At first, the elder Hill told his son about the winning ticket but instructed

him not to share the news with anyone. Cody Hill said he went to work and heard people commenting about how one of the winning tickets came from a local store. He said nothing. But then a relative told him to look at his dadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Facebook page, where his father had announced the familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good fortune. Cindy Hill, sounding cautious and a little concerned about the windfall, said they have no immediate plans to move out of their single-story ranch house on a quiet cul-desac. But they will have more free time. Mark Hill quit his job as a mechanic Thursday. His wife, who missed a scheduled job interview on the same day, has no plans to keep

looking for work. Instead, she plans to focus on their daughter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Right now, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s our most important thing,â&#x20AC;? Cindy Hill said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And we want her to have normal things. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Christmastime, and we want to be home. ... We want everything normal.â&#x20AC;? Mark Hill said the adjustment in the family income hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quite sunk in yet. He had to buy some small things Thursday when the family was in Jefferson City waiting for the Missouri Lottery to validate their ticket. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had to get like toothpaste and stuff like that, and I found myself at the store still looking at the price of stuff,â&#x20AC;? he said. Some of the money will go toward travel, perhaps back to China for another

adoption or â&#x20AC;&#x153;wherever the wind takes us,â&#x20AC;? Cindy Hill said. They also will help relatives, including establishing college funds for their grandchildren and nieces and nephews. Mark Hill has his eye on a red Camaro. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that big of a Powerball, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to get people coming out of the woodwork, some of them might not be too sane,â&#x20AC;? Cindy Hill said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to protect our family and grandkids.â&#x20AC;? She said the family will also be contributing to charities, including a scholarship fund in the local school district in her fatherin-lawâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name. And they hope to continue advocating for adoption, which is â&#x20AC;&#x153;very big with us.â&#x20AC;? The jackpot was the second-largest in U.S. history and set off a nationwide buying frenzy. At one point, tickets were selling at nearly 130,000 a minute. Before Wednesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drawing, the jackpot had rolled over 16 consecutive times without anyone hitting the jackpot. In a Mega Millions drawing in March, three ticket buyers shared a $656 million jackpot, the largest lottery payout of all time. Cindy Hill said whatever is ahead for them, the family plans to use the winnings wisely. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to say too that God blessed us with this. And for some reason, he put it in our hands, I think, to make sure that it goes to the right things,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But we were blessed before we ever won this.â&#x20AC;?


and Kansas Advocates for Better Care issued a statement, saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;A one-sizefits-all cap is no substitute for the wisdom of a citizen jury.â&#x20AC;? Just two months before the Kansas decision, the Missouri Supreme Court struck down a cap on damages in that state. In that 4-3 ruling, the Missouri court said that stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $350,000 cap was â&#x20AC;&#x153;unconstitutional to the extent that it infringes on the juryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s constitutionally protected purpose of determining the amount of damages sustained by an injured party.â&#x20AC;? Tom Bell, president and chief executive officer of the Kansas Hospital Association, said he supported an increase in the cap in Kansas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just need to figure out what that amount is, and go about doing it,â&#x20AC;? he said. Bell and Slaughter praised the Kansas courtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision, saying it helped stabilize the health care system. Bell said the ruling will help Kansas recruit doctors and researchers. Slaughter said the Medical Society wanted to bring in stakeholders and discuss the cap through 2013 and provide legislators with a proposal to increase it in 2014. Dick Bond, chairman of the Health Care Stabilization Fund Oversight Committee, said he hoped the cap could be increased as soon as possible, â&#x20AC;&#x153;otherwise youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to be back in court again.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

Former mayor files Hospital association leader: Kansas Death for City Commission should consider Medicaid expansion


By Chad Lawhorn

After a two-year hiatus, longtime Lawrence resident and financial professional Rob Chestnut is seeking a return to the City Commission. Chestnut on Friday officially filed to run for a seat on the Lawrence City Commission in the upcoming April elections. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a lot of public projects that are being considered or already have been approved in the city,â&#x20AC;? Chestnut said, mentioning the Chestnut proposed recreation center, the library expansion and a possible bond issue by the school district. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want to make sure we are spending enough time on the core services, like police, fire, water, sewer and public works. I call them the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;have-toâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; They are things you have to do.â&#x20AC;? Chestnut, 51, served on the commission from 2007 to 2011, and was mayor for the 2009-2010 term. Chestnut said he did not seek re-election two years ago because he was in the midst of changing jobs. He previously was the chief financial officer for Lawrence-based Allen Press and now is the CFO for Topeka-based Nationwide Learning, a company that produces writingbased learning products for elementary schools. Keeping an eye on the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget will be a major point of emphasis, if elected, Chestnut said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I spent a lot of time in my first term learning to understand the city budget, and I think I have a good skill set for that,â&#x20AC;? said Chestnut, who grew up in Lawrence and gradKPHQ /,%(57< +$// CEEGUUKDKNKV[

uated from Kansas University with degrees in accounting and business. Chestnut said he also wants to have a discussion about the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economic development strategy. He said the community needs to do a better job of targeting the type of businesses it wants to attract rather than reacting to proposals that come the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s way. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our efforts up to this point, I think, have been more reactive than proactive,â&#x20AC;? Chestnut said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to decide what industries we have some advantages in, and then we have to figure out what we do to target those industries.â&#x20AC;? Chestnut also said he thinks the city needs to start thinking about replacing Horizon 2020, its comprehensive planning document, which was approved about 15 years ago. He said he hopes a new comprehensive plan can be a more â&#x20AC;&#x153;flexible and simplifiedâ&#x20AC;? document. Three seats will be up for election during the April 2 general election. Incumbents Mike Amyx, Hugh Carter and Aron Cromwell all have terms that are expiring. None of the incumbents has announced whether he intends to seek re-election. Scott Criqui, a human resources manager and a commissioner on the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Human Relations Commission, filed for election in June. Candidates have until noon Jan. 22 to file for a seat on the commission. If more than six candidates file for election, a primary will take place Feb. 26. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362. Follow him at

230,000 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; being children. The rest are mostly lowerincome, pregnant women, people with disabilities and the elderly. The $2.8 billion program is funded with federal and state dollars. Medicaid in Kansas doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cover low-income adults who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have children. And a nondisabled adult with children is eligible only if his or her income is below 32 percent of the poverty level, which is approximately $5,000 per year. That is about the most difficult eligibility level in the country. But starting in 2014, the ACA creates an eligibility level of 138 percent of the federal poverty level, which is $15,415 per year for an individual and $26,344 per year for a family of three. Estimates indicate that Kansasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Medicaid enrollment would increase by 135,000 people under the new rules. In addition, many more children probably would be helped, because when parents have access to insurance, it is more likely their children will, too. If Kansas opts for the expansion, the federal government would pay for 100 percent of the addi-

TOPEKA â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The leader of the Kansas Hospital Association said Friday that the state needs to take a serious look at expanding Medicaid under the federal Affordable Care Act. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The bottom line for us is, frankly, we think it presents an opportunity to the state to look at some additional funding for a program that is already under-funded,â&#x20AC;? said Tom Bell, president of the Kansas Hospital Association. Gov. Sam Brownback, a conservative Republican, has said he is studying the issue. Several conservative Republican governors have rejected the option out of hand. Bell said his association is working with Brownback on the issue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What we have tried to do, knowing the governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s caution, which is reasonable, is to try to work with the administration and help answer the questions that the state needs to answer,â&#x20AC;? Bell said. Currently, Medicaid provides health care coverage to about 380,000 Kansans, with the largest portion of them â&#x20AC;&#x201D; about

Police are waiting for the results of an autopsy to determine the cause of death. Police also found $12,000 at Maytubbyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home, which raised suspicions that Maytubby may have been financially exploiting her mother. Maytubby was originally arrested on a charge of unlawfully disposing of human remains, obstructing an officer, disrupting an investigation and financial exploitation by a caregiver. However, she was only charged with the one count of desecration of a human corpse in court Thursday. The crime is a felony punishable by up to seven years in prison. Maytubbyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next court appearance is set for Jan. 23.

tional cost for three years starting in 2014. Then the federal share would drop to 90 percent by 2020. Bell said the expansion would help Kansas hospitals and thousands of Kansans who would probably receive better health care instead of waiting to be treated in an emergency room. But he said he understood how some policymakers would be hesitant, given the federal governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget problems. On the other hand, Bell said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;It makes no sense for a state to jump out and say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not going to do this.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? On Thursday, Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon, a Democrat, announced that he would push for the Medicaid expansion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we take a pass on billions of health care dollars â&#x20AC;&#x201D; dollars that come out of Missouriansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; paychecks â&#x20AC;&#x201D; that money will go to some other state. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get the benefit, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get the bill,â&#x20AC;? Nixon said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not smart, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not right.â&#x20AC;? Republican legislative leaders, however, said Nixonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposal was probably dead on arrival.

State budget cuts are forcing Kansas Legal Services, which provides help to low-income Kansans, to close its branch office in Lawrence at the end of this year, officials said Friday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will strive to minimize the impact felt on the community but know that our diminished presence will mean a greater strain on the courts and the bar,â&#x20AC;? said Bethany Roberts, managing attorney. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are committed to trying to locate additional funding and hope to reopen the office at some

point in the future,â&#x20AC;? she said. In 2011, Kansas Legal Services assisted 1,673 clients in Douglas and Jefferson counties. The KLS office in Topeka will remain open and available to provide services to clients in Douglas and Jefferson counties, Roberts said. Roberts said KLS lost contracts with the state to help move people from state assistance to federal assistance. Two of those contracts were worth a total of nearly $1 million, she said. Last year, KLS closed a field office in Garden City because of a lack of funding. Lawrence attorney


An arrest warrant has been issued for a 31-year-old Lawrence man charged with firing a gun in February outside an apartment in northern Lawrence. James C. Benimon II failed to appear at a hearing Thursday in Douglas County District Court. Benimon faces charges of criminal discharge of a firearm and criminal possession of a firearm by a felon. Benimon is accused of firing several shots from one car into another the evening of Feb. 8 outside an apartment in the 1300 block of Michigan Way, near Second and Michigan streets. Benimon had been free after posting a $25,000 bond. Benimon was also indicted in August in federal court for failing to register as a sex offender after being

Hoover said he was impressed after meeting Edwards. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Billâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resume and experience speaks for itself.

This summer, crews from Sunflower Paving were tearing out and replacing curbing along Sixth Street. After they completed their work, tall weeds grew in the bare dirt left behind. Now, it appears that grass seed and straw have been thrown on top, but the weeds remain. Who is responsible for this: the city or Sunflower Paving?


Roger Steinbrock, a marketing supervisor for the city, says that Sunflower Paving is responsible and that they plan to remove all weeds and reseed any bare areas next spring.

Congress may scrap $1 bill By Kevin Freking Associated Press

to save money by changing the money itself. The Mint is preparing a report for Congress showing how changes in the metal content of coins could save money. The last time the government made major metallurgical changes in U.S. coins was nearly 50 years ago when Congress directed the Mint to remove silver from dimes and quarters and to reduce its content in half dollar coins. Now, Congress is looking at new changes in response to rising prices for copper and nickel. At a House subcommittee hearing Thursday, the focus was on two approaches:

Moving to less expensive combinations of metals like steel, aluminum and zinc.

 Gradually taking dollar bills out of the economy and replacing them with coins. The GAOâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lorelei St. James told the House Financial Services panel it would take several years for the benefits of switching from paper bills to dollar coins to catch up with

the cost of making the change. Equipment would have to be bought or overhauled and more coins would have to be produced upfront to replace bills as they are taken out of circulation. But over the years, the savings would begin to accrue, she said, largely because a $1 coin could stay in circulation for 30 years while paper bills have to be replaced every four or five years on average. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We continue to believe that replacing the note with a coin is likely to provide a financial benefit to the government,â&#x20AC;? said St. James, who added that such a change would work only if the note were completely eliminated and the public educated about the benefits of the switch. Even the $1 coinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most ardent supporters recognize that they havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been popular. Philip Diehl, former director of the Mint, said there was a huge demand for the Sacagawea dollar coin when production began in 2001, but as time wore on, people stayed with what they knew best.

WASHINGTON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; American consumers have shown about as much appetite for the $1 coin as kids do their spinach. They may not know whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best for them either. Congressional auditors say doing away with dollar bills entirely and replacing them with dollar coins could save taxpayers some $4.4 billion over the next 30 years. Vending machine operators have long championed the use of $1 coins because they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t jam the machines, cutting down on Susan Walsh/AP Photo repair costs and lost sales.

U.S. struggles to get Israel, Palestinians to talks WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Obama administration sought Friday to direct Israel and the Palestinians back toward direct peace talks, even as the two sides and much of the world seemed to be ignoring the U.S. attempts at leadership on a Mideast peace strategy. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton met senior Israeli and Palestinian officials Friday, with each side locked in a pattern of actions that the United States had expressly warned against: the Palestinians winning U.N. recognition of their claim to a state on Thursday and the Israelis retaliating Friday by approving 3,000 new homes on Israeli-occupied territory. The administration has campaigned for nearly two years to prevent the Palestinian action at the United Nations, fearful it would anger Israel so much that the resumption of direct talks between the Jewish state and Palestinians would be impossible. The administration remains concerned as well that statehood could mean International Criminal Court action against Israeli soldiers for their conduct in Palestinian or disputed territory â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a scenario Washington believes would greatly debilitate peace hopes.

Israel moves to build 3,000 settlement homes By Aron Heller and Karin Laub Associated Press

JERUSALEM â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Israel responded swiftly Friday to U.N. recognition of a Palestinian state, revealing it will build 3,000 more homes for Jews on Israelioccupied lands that the world body overwhelmingly said belong to the Palestinians. The plans also include future construction in a strategic area of the West Bank where critics have long warned that Jewish settlements would kill hopes for a viable Palestinian state. Israelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s moves served as a harsh reminder to Palestinians â&#x20AC;&#x201D; euphoric over the U.N. upgrade â&#x20AC;&#x201D; that while they now have a state on paper, most of it remains very much under Israeli control. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a doomsday scenario,â&#x20AC;? Daniel Seidemann of Ir Amim, a group that promotes coexistence in Jerusalem, said of the building plans. Israelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision was bound to embarrass the United States, which was among just nine countries in the 193-member General Assembly to vote against accepting Palestine as a nonmember observer state. Accelerated settlement construction could also set a more confrontational tone as Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas weighs his next moves.

A PALESTINIAN PROTESTER holds a placard Friday in front of Israeli soldiers during a demonstration in the West Bank village of al-Masara near Bethlehem marking the recognition of a sovereign Palestinian state by the United Nations. On Thursday, the United Nations General Assembly voted 138-9 with 41 countries abstaining to upgrade the Palestinian status at the world organization to a nonmember state. criticized the Israeli announcement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These actions are counterproductive and make it harder to resume direct negotiations or achieve a two-state solution,â&#x20AC;? she said. Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision was taken by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and eight senior Cabinet ministers, according to the Israeli news website Ynet. The plans include 3,000 new apartments in the West Bank and east Jerusalem, as well as preparations for new construction in other large West Bank settlements, including Maaleh Adumim, near east Jerusalem, said an Israeli government official. Among the projects is an expansion of Maaleh Adumim, known as E-1, said the official, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not

authorized to discuss the decision with reporters. Successive U.S. administrations have pressured Israel not to build in E-1 because it would effectively cut off east Jerusalem from the West Bank, and split the northern part of the territory from the southern part. Israel has said in the past it envisions 3,500 apartments there. â&#x20AC;&#x153;E-1 will be the death of the two-state solution,â&#x20AC;? said Seidemann, referring to the establishment of a state of Palestine alongside Israel. Tzipi Livni, Israelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s former foreign minister and chief negotiator with the Palestinians, warned that â&#x20AC;&#x153;the decision to build thousands of housing units as punishment to the Palestinians only punishes Israel ... (and) only isolates Israel further.â&#x20AC;?

MIAMI â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The 2012 Atlantic hurricane season that spawned the destruction of Sandy and Isaac has come to an end as one for the record books. There were 19 named storms in what meteorologists consider an aboveaverage year that tied as being the third most-active season since 1851. The season runs from June 1 to Nov. 30., although tropical storms can and do sometimes develop outside those dates. Even without a so-called major storm reaching the U.S., there was plenty of damage. A storm is classed as major once it becomes a Category 3 hurricane, with top sustained winds of 111 miles per hour and more. Seven years have now gone by without a major hurricane making U.S. landfall, the longest stretch on record. Dennis Feltgen, a spokesman for the National Hurricane Center, said a persistent jet stream pattern has steered storms away from the U.S. in recent years. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enough to keep away Sandy, which morphed from hurricane to superstorm as it slammed into the New Jersey coast in October and wreaked havoc across the Northeast. It left millions without power and killed at least 125 people in the U.S. and 71 in the Caribbean. The storm is estimated to have caused about $62 billion in damage and other losses in the U.S.,

most of it in New York and New Jersey. It is the second-costliest storm in U.S. history after 2005â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hurricane Katrina. Hurricane Isaac struck southern Louisiana in August on the eve of Hurricane Katrinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seventh anniversary, swamping the Gulf Coast after trudging through the Gulf of Mexico and delaying the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla. Sandy combined with an early winter storm and blast of arctic air from the north to create a deadly brew meteorologists coined â&#x20AC;&#x153;Frankenstormâ&#x20AC;? and struck two days before Halloween. A somewhat similar phenomenon occurred with the so-called Perfect Storm off the coast of New England in 1991, but that storm did not strike a major metropolitan region like Sandy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This was certainly one for the record books,â&#x20AC;? Feltgen said. A typical hurricane season has 12 named storms, six of which become hurricanes and three major storms. This year 10 storms became hurricanes and just one a Category 3 or higher, though it remained in the Atlantic Ocean. Four storms in all made landfall, including Tropical Storm Beryl, which struck Jacksonville, Fla., with 75 miles per hour winds, the strongest tropical storm to strike the U.S. before hurricane season officially starts. Whether next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hurricane season will bring another calamitous strike is still too early to predict.

GOP should let Obama go over cliff WASHINGTON — Why are Republicans playing the Democrats’ game that the “fiscal cliff” is all about taxation? House Speaker John Boehner already made the pre-emptive concession of agreeing to raise revenues. But the insistence on doing so by eliminating deductions without raising marginal rates is now the subject of fierce Republican infighting. Where is the other part of President Obama’s vaunted “balanced approach”? Where are the

Charles Krauthammer letters@charleskrauthammer. com

The objective is to ignite exactly the kind of internecine warfare on taxes now going on among Republicans. And to bury Grover Norquist.”

spending cuts, both discretionary and entitlement: Medicare, Medicaid and now Obamacare (the health care trio) and Social Security? Social Security is the easiest to solve. So you get a sense of the Democrats’ inclination to reform entitlements when Dick Durbin, the Senate Democrats’ No. 2, says

Social Security is off the table because it “does not add a penny to our deficit.” This is absurd. In 2012, Social Security adds $165 billion to the deficit. Democrats pretend that Social Security is covered through 2033 by its trust fund. Except that the trust fund is a fiction, a mere “bookkeeping” device, as the OMB itself has written. The trust fund’s IOUs “do not consist of real economic assets that can be drawn down in the future to fund benefits.” Future benefits “will have to be financed by raising taxes, borrowing from the public, or reducing benefits or other expenditures.” And draining the Treasury, as 10,000 baby boomers retire every day. Yet that’s off the table. And on Wednesday, the president threw down the gauntlet by demanding tax hikes now — with

spending cuts to come next year. Meaning, until after Republicans have fallen on their swords, given up the tax issue and forfeited their political leverage. Ronald Reagan once fell for a “tax now, cut later” deal that he later deeply regretted. Dems got the tax; he never got the cuts. Obama’s audacious new gambit is not a serious proposal to solve our fiscal problems. It’s a raw partisan maneuver meant to neuter the Republicans by getting them to cave on their signature issue as the hold-the-line party on taxes. The objective is to ignite exactly the kind of internecine warfare on taxes now going on among Republicans. And to bury Grover Norquist. I am not now, nor have ever been, a Norquistian. I don’t believe the current level of taxation is divinely ordained. Nor

do I believe in pledges of any kind. But Norquist is the only guy in town to consistently resist the tax-and-spend Democrats’ stampede for ever higher taxes to fund ever more reckless spending. The hunt for Norquist’s scalp is a key part of the larger partisan project to make the Republicans do a George H.W. Bush and renege on their heretofore firm stand on taxes. Bush never recovered. Why are the Republicans playing along? Because it is assumed that Obama has the upper hand. Unless Republicans acquiesce and get the best deal they can right now, tax rates will rise across the board on Jan. 1, and the GOP will be left without any bargaining chips. But what about Obama? If we all cliff dive, he gets to preside over yet another recession. It will wreck his second term.

Sure Republicans will get blamed. But Obama is never running again. He cares about his legacy. You think he wants a second term with a doubledip recession, 9 percent unemployment and a totally gridlocked Congress? Republicans have to stop playing as if they have no cards. Obama is claiming an electoral mandate to raise taxes on the top 2 percent. Perhaps, but remember those incessant campaign ads promising a return to the economic nirvana of the Clinton years? Well, George W. Bush cut rates across the board, not just for the top 2 percent. Going back to the Clinton rates means middle-class tax hikes that yield four times the revenue that you get from just the rich. So give Obama the full Clinton. Let him live with that. And with what also lies on the other side of the cliff: 28 million Americans newly subject to the ruinous alternative minimum tax. Republicans must stop acting like supplicants. If Obama so loves those Clinton rates, Republicans should say: Then go over the cliff and have them all. And add: But if you want a Grand Bargain, then deal. If we give way on taxes, we want, in return, serious discretionary cuts, clearly spelledout entitlement cuts and real tax reform. Otherwise, strap on your parachute, Mr. President. We’ll ride down together. — Charles Krauthammer is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.


Fiscal danger To the editor: There are dangers if the American government pays its bills by simply printing more money. The dollar could lose its status as the global reserve currency and, given the nature of today’s economy, once foreigners start to dump their greenbacks, Americans will face massive inflation. A year ago, a bipartisan group tried to develop a plan to avoid this catastrophe. They were unable to agree, but still wanting to show that Washington was serious about controlling its debt, they settled upon automatic cuts and the revocation of certain tax breaks that would take effect at year’s end. I was surprised then to read Mike Hoeflich’s flagwaving harangue about how this 12th-hour gesture at fiscal discipline would damage our military and harm the needy (Journal-World, Nov. 28). The U.S. spends more on defense than the combined military expenditures of all other major countries. Such fiscal profligacy has enriched the military-industrial complex but has weakened our country’s credit-worthiness. Indeed, a former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff claimed that the country’s precarious finances may be our greatest threat. And as a president from Kansas once suggested, every excess defense dollar deprives a senior citizen of a meal.

Defense cuts alone won’t balance the budget. Besides higher taxes, other programs will have to be cut to demonstrate our fiscal wellbeing. Then again, we could opt for the easy, short-term solution and continue to run the currency presses 24/7. When the day of fiscal reckoning finally does come, the cliff will surely be higher and more treacherous. We might be tempted then to use our military to help balance the books. Ray Finch, Lawrence

Another fight? To the editor: As the Civil War drew to a close, radical Republicans such as Pennsylvania Congressman Thaddeus Stevens wanted to punish the secessionists. They wanted to utterly destroy the Southern aristocracy. They bitterly blamed Southern leadership for the horrible loss of life and treasure during five years of war and wanted to hunt down and hang or imprison Southern civilian and military leaders. They wanted to take statehood away from seceded states, to confiscate rebel property, and divide the great plantations into 40-acre tracts to be distributed among the former slaves. Lincoln stood against them; he wanted union, to repair the bond between Americans. He did not live to see it, but Lincoln had his way. Rebel states were

No worries To the editor: The congressmen in Washington want to make cuts in Social Security and Medicare. They won’t have to worry about stretching their benefits to last through the month. They will have plenty of money and benefits. They already do! Elizabeth Mitchell, Lawrence

readmitted, and few of the Southern leaders were punished, no property was confiscated, the great estates were left intact. It has been generally thought during the past 147 years that this course of moderation was good, restoring the United States, while irrevocably establishing the principle of the Union. But now some are again screaming “fire” in the crowded theater. Watching Missouri play Texas A&M on TV, I saw an A&M student who wore a sweatshirt that read “Texas A&M Secede.” Petitions in several Southern states, notably Missouri and Texas, demand secession. Some may even think they’re serious. Those who wear emblems of rebellion certainly think they’re tough guys. But so are we who love the Union. Let them secede and we’ll conquer them again; only this, we’ll be time less tolerant of their treachery. William Skepnek, Lawrence

KANSAS GUARD ELIJAH JOHNSON (15) DEFENDS OREGON STATE GUARD AHMAD STARKS during the first half of the Jayhawks’ 84-78 victory over the Beavers on Friday night at Sprint Center in Kansas City, Mo.

KU wins, but Self miffed by Jayhawks’ defense By Gary Bedore

KANSAS CITY, MO. — A few more points here and there, and Oregon State men’s basketball coach Craig Robinson would have received a congratulatory call from the White House late Friday night. Unranked and unheralded OSU, which hasn’t beaten a Top 10 team on the road in 36 years, threw a scare into Kansas University’s No. 10-rated Jayhawks before falling, 84-78, before 18,789 quiet fans in Sprint Center. The Beavers of the Pac-12, who are coached by President Obama’s brother-in-law, shredded KU’s defense in cutting a 14-point deficit to zero the first half and a 13-point deficit to three with under a minute to play in the game. “It all comes down to this: They guard the guy with the

We couldn’t guard No. 3, period,” KU coach Bill Self said of guard Ahmad Starks, who scored 25 points off 9-of-20 shooting, 7-of-13 from three.

“That’s something that obviously has to improve, or we’ll have to change how we play. We’ll have to start playing some zone or whatnot.” Zone? Yes, you read right. He said zone.

KU’s 10th-year coach, a disciple of man-to-man defense, was left to ponder putting his Jayhawks in a 2-3 zone after a game in which KU hit 60 percent of its shots, yet only won by six points. “We didn’t guard the ball,” Self said. “They didn’t score off their actions. They scored off us not being able to guard the ball, which is pretty important. We can’t blame it on our offense. We got the ball where we wanted it to go, we just didn’t do any good at stopping them.” Elijah Johnson, who has been battling a knee injury the past couple of weeks, had nine assists, four turnovers and six points in 28 minutes. “You saw tonight. He got whipped,” Self said. “I hate to say that. The point guard on their team gets 25. Ours gets six. That’s not all on him. Different guys were guarding him.

“That’s what’s frustrating. I don’t know where we go from there yet,” added Self, who tried Naadir Tharpe (no points, two turnovers, one assist, eight minutes), Rio Adams (two points, one assist, one turnover, four minutes) and walk-on Evan Manning (no stats in two minutes) at the backup point position. “We’ll try to figure a way to put us in a situation where the other team doesn’t feel so comfortable right now. He (Johnson) is doing some nice things, but he is not making plays on either end. That is frustrating. We are used to having some guys back there that can make some plays.” On Friday, KU, which received 15 points the first half from Ben McLemore (he finished with 21), was bailed out by senior Travis Releford,

KU volleyball overcomes jitters, advances By Mike Strauss Special to the Journal-World

KANSAS UNIVERSITY’S VOLLEYBALL TEAM CELEBRATES a 3-1 victory over Cleveland State in the first round of the NCAA Tournament on Friday at Allen Fieldhouse.

NCAA Tournament jitters. Poor play. Quality opponent. Whatever you want to attribute it to — and all of those causes were mentioned by coaches and players — Kansas University came out flat in its first NCAA Volleyball Tournament appearance in seven years Friday night. The Jayhawks, playing in Allen Fieldhouse for just the second time this season, dropped the opening set to Cleveland State, 25-17, in front of a stunned crowd of 3,551, but rallied to win three straight sets and advance to the second round. “I was glad we got through the first set,” Kansas coach Ray Bechard said. “You never know how a team is going to react in a situation like that. Obviously, it wasn’t our best opening-set performance.

What is important is how we responded after that. We settled down a little bit. We just got sped up, and when we slowed down a little bit and got UP NEXT things under Who: Wichita control, we State (23-9) hit .400, .282 vs. Kansas and .438 in (26-6) the last three sets.

KU had won its opening set in each of its last five matches.

The Vikings, winners of 13 straight matches heading into the NCAA Tournament, came out strong and were not intimidated by the large crowd or the 11th-seeded Jayhawks en route to the easy first-set victory. “I was happy with how we played,” said Cleveland State coach Chuck Voss. “We weren’t overwhelmed with the environment, and I think a lot of teams would have been.” Kansas responded to the shocking first-set loss by posting a 25-10 victory in the second set, its most lopsided victory margin of the year. Kansas went on to win sets three and four to set up a second-round match with Wichita State. Match time is 6:30 p.m. today at Allen Fieldhouse.

Stanford topples UCLA, 27-24 STANFORD, CALIF. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Kevin Hogan has taken Stanford to a place Andrew Luck never could. Hogan threw for 155 yards and a touchdown and ran for 47 yards to help the eighth-ranked Cardinal beat No. 17 UCLA, 2724, in the Pac-12 championship game Friday night. As a defender barreled into him, Hogan hurled a 26-yard tying touchdown to Drew Terrell on third-and-15 early in the fourth quarter. Jordan Williamson kicked his second field goal from 36 yards with 6:49 remaining for the go-ahead score to seal Stanfordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first conference title since the 1999 season.

N. Illinois clips Kent in 2 OTs DETROIT (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Jordan Lynch ran for three touchdowns, including a two-yarder in the second overtime, and Demetrius Stoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interception in the end zone gave No. 19 Northern Illinois a 44-37 victory over No. 18 Kent State in a stirring MidAmerican Conference championship game Friday night. Both teams were hoping a win would boost them into the top 16 of the BCS rankings and give them a berth in one of college footballâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s marquee bowls. Northern Illinois (12-1) dominated for much of the night, but the Golden Flashes (11-2) tied it at 34 in the final minute of regulation. Kent State trailed 27-13 earlier in the fourth before scoring two touchdowns in a 15-second span. It was 34-all at the end of regulation, and after the teams traded field goals in the first overtime, Northern Illinois needed only two plays to reach the end zone. A 23-yard run by Akeem Daniels set up Lynchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s final TD. Kent State reached the 9, but on fourth down, Spencer Keith had to scramble to his right and throw a desperation pass that was picked off by Stone in the end zone. Northern Illinois won its second straight MAC title, the first team to do that since Central Michigan in 2006-07. Lynch threw for 212 yards and ran for 160, but it almost wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enough. Northern Illinoisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; three previous trips to the MAC title game were decided in the final minute, and this one took even longer. Down by two touchdowns, Kent State rallied in stunning fashion. Keithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s five-yard touchdown run with 4:53 remaining in the fourth quarter capped a 96yard drive. It was the first MAC championship game to go to overtime.

NBA fines Spurs $250,000 for resting players The NBA fined the San Antonio Spurs $250,000 on Friday for sending four players home Thursday before their game Thursday night in Miami. Commissioner David Stern said in a statement that the Spurs â&#x20AC;&#x153;did a disservice to the league and our fansâ&#x20AC;? when they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bring Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili or Danny Green to Miami for the final game of their six-game road trip. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The result here is dictated by the totality of the facts in this case,â&#x20AC;? Stern said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Spurs decided to make four of their top players unavailable for an early-season game that was the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only regular-season visit to Miami. The team also did this without informing the Heat, the media, or the league office in a timely way.â&#x20AC;? Teams are required to report as soon as they know a player will not travel because of injury. The leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s statement said the Spurs were in violation of league policy reviewed with the board of governors in April 2010 against resting players in a manner â&#x20AC;&#x153;contrary to the best interests of the NBA.â&#x20AC;? After that meeting, Stern said owners had discussed the issue of sitting healthy players but that there was â&#x20AC;&#x153;no conclusion reached, other than a number of teams thought it should be at the sole discretion of the team, the coach, the general manager, and I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fair to say I agree with that, unless that discretion is abused.â&#x20AC;? The Heat rallied late to beat the Spurs, 105100.


Royals, Getz agree on deal KANSAS CITY, MO. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Royals and second baseman Chris Getz avoided arbitration Friday by agreeing a $1.05 million, one-year contract that includes up to $150,000 in performance bonuses. Getz, who made $967,500 last season, batted .275 with 17 RBIs and nine stolen bases in 64 games last season. He was on the disabled list three times, including a stint for a fractured left thumb that ended his season on Aug. 17. The Royals have tried numerous second base options the past couple seasons without settling on an everyday player. They were 30-25 when Getz was in the starting lineup. The Royals also announced that left-hander Ryan Verdugo and catcher Adam Moore were assigned outright to Triple-A Omaha. They were designated for assignment on Nov. 20.

Outfielder Derrick Robinson cleared waivers and will not be tendered a contract, making him a free agent.


Mets Wright signs big pact NEW YORK â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The face of the New York Mets plans to stick around for quite a while. All-Star third baseman David Wright and the Mets agreed Friday to a $138 million, eight-year contract, a person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press. The deal, the richest in franchise history, replaces Wrightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $16 million salary for next season and includes $122 million in new money, the person said, speaking on condition of anonymity because the agreement was not yet final.


McDowell up by three THOUSAND OAKS, CALIF. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Graeme McDowell has done a lot right this year, except for win. He now has one last chance to fix that. McDowell, back at the course that has provided two big moments for his career, opened with three straight birdies Friday and finished strong for a 6-under 66 to take a three-shot lead in the World Challenge. Bo Van Pelt had to save bogey on the last hole for a 68, leaving him tied for second with Keegan Bradley and Jim Furyk, who each had a 69. Tournament host and defending champion Tiger Woods was tied for the lead at one point on the back nine but had to settle for a 69. He was four shots behind. McDowell hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t won since this tournament in 2010.

Lawrie leads at Nedbank SUN CITY, SOUTH AFRICA â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Scotlandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Paul Lawrie shot a 3-under 69 in the Nedbank Golf Challenge to take a one-stroke lead over Germanyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Martin Kaymer in the 12-man event.

LHS girls’ rally falls short, 43-42 By Benton Smith

Just when it looked as if Lawrence High’s girls basketball team would open its season with a doubledigit home loss Friday night, the Lions found a new level of energy in the final minute-plus against Emporia. But even a flurry of forcing EHS turnovers in the back court and following those with last-minute buckets couldn’t get Lawrence past the Spartans, who held on for a 43-42 victory. The Lions seemingly had no chance when Emporia’s lead grew to 13 with just more than two minutes remaining. Then junior forward Kionna Coleman, who finished with game highs of 24 points and 12 rebounds, did what she had done all night, scoring a couple of baskets inside to cut into the EHS lead. Coleman drew a foul, and EHS (1-0) was hit with a technical foul with 1:19 left, but Lawrence (0-1) failed to capitalize with the clock stopped. Coleman missed both of her free throws, senior guard Anna Wright made one of two, and Emporia, led 4032. However, Lawrence still had possession after the technical and seldomused junior guard Alethia McKinney knocked down a jumper on her only shot attempt of the game to cut


upend Arkansas, 3-2, Friday. The opening round of the tournament and the large crowd affected KU to start the game, according to Jayhawk junior Caroline Jarmoc. “Nerves. Different atmosphere,” Jarmoc said of the slow start. “Even though we have been playing and practicing in Allen for the past week, I think it was the crowd and being in the tournament. None of the girls on the team have ever played in the tournament. I think it was getting those kinks out, getting together as a team. We had to communicate differently because it was so loud in the gym.” Jarmoc said the crowd then helped the team as the match progressed. “When the crowd is cheering, it helps you with energy and happiness overall, and you get more relaxed when you know you have a bunch of supporters,” she said. Bechard appreciated the large crowd as well. “It was really exciting to see them into it,” he said. “They didn’t bail on us after the first set. They were enthused and encouraged, and our team could sense that and feel that. I thought it was a really great night for the fieldhouse to have high-level volleyball — both matches

LAWRENCE HIGH’S ANNA WRIGHT (24) AND KIONNA COLEMAN (33) reach for a rebound against Emporia. The Lions’ girls basketball team opened its season with a 43-42 loss Friday night at LHS. the Lions’ deficit to six with 1:05 to go. EHS junior Kayna Hastings hit a pair of free throws a few seconds later, but Wright (eight points) answered with a jumper to make it 42-36. After a Raegan Sanchez free throw gave Emporia its final point of the game, what followed in the final minute was like something out of a terribly unbelievable sports movie —

— in there. I would think Saturday night we would add a few people.” Sophomore Sara McClinton led the way for Kansas with 16 kills, while committing just three errors on 31 total attacks. After the disappointing first set, she was encouraged by her teammates to keep playing hard. “I knew that my role on my team is to get kills, and that is how I can contribute the most to my team,” McClinton said. “I just kept swinging away because I knew that was what my team needed.” Catherine Carmichael added 11 kills for Kansas, while Tayler Tolefree registered nine kills and a game-best six blocks. The Jayhawk front line also did its part defensively, registering 12 total team blocks and holding Cleveland State to a 49 hitting percentage for the match. The Jayhawks, who were making their first NCAA Tournament appearance since receiving three straight bids from 2003-05, registered their first postseason victory since 2004. Kansas and Wichita State will be meeting for the first time since the Shockers posted a home victory in 2002. “We are pleased to be moving on,” Bechard said. “We know we have a worthy opponent Saturday, but we will get ready for that later. We are excited about the opportunity to play in the second round.”

save the Lions pulling out a victory. The Spartans turned the ball over three straight times, and LHS scored six points off those turnovers, with two baskets from Coleman and a left-side baseline jumper by Wright. Coleman’s final field goal in the paint with just six seconds left made it a one-point game, but Emporia got the ball in bounds safely and avoided

being fouled, allowing the game clock to expire. Hearing that final buzzer after getting within a point, Coleman said, felt frustrating. But the junior forward tired to focus on the positive. “I thought we played really well,” she said. LHS coach Nick Wood said the Lions didn’t have that kind of fight in them a season ago. “We literally battled to

Special to the Journal-World

Wichita State’s route to the second round of the NCAA Tournament and a meeting with host Kansas was not easy Friday night. The Shockers, who are in the NCAA Tournament for the sixth straight season, found themselves in a difficult situation after two sets. Arkansas, playing aggressive and confidently, made large runs in both the first and second sets to set the Shockers reeling. Arkansas claimed an easy 25-16 victory in the opening set and a closer 27-25 second-set win.

Playing four freshmen, two sophomores, four juniors and the senior tandem of Emily Adney and Jackie Church, Wichita State seemed overmatched against an Arkansas team making its first NCAA appearance since 2006. However, the Shockers rallied to win the final three sets, 25-17, 25-23, 15-10, and stay alive in the elimination tournament, improving to 23-9 on the season. “To be down 2-0 and come back and beat a team like that was amazing,” Lamb said. “More specifically I think 40 percent of my game plan, we threw out the door on

Lawrence boys open with win J-W Staff Reports

JUNCTION CITY — Lawrence High’s boys basketball team made its seasonopening trip to Junction City worthwhile with a thrilling victory Friday night. The Lions defeated the Blue Jays, 62-60, on the game’s final play. LHS senior Austin Abbott scored on a layup with one second remaining after taking a pass near the three-point line from sophomore Anthony Bonner. Bonner came up with the ball after a scramble, then delivered it to Abbott. The game was close the entire way. Lawrence High led by five early, and Junction City entered the fourth quarter with a 4844 lead. The Lions outscored Junction City 18-12 in the final period.

the last second, and unfortunately we just ran out of time,” he said. After what would have been a miraculous comeback fell short, Wood pointed to the Lions’ struggles earlier in the game. Those far outweighed their out-of-nowhere surge. LHS went 2-for-11 in the first quarter and trailed 13-6. Yet, EHS only led 22-15 at halftime after Coleman scored all nine of her team’s secondquarter points. The Lions’ shooting woes continued in the third quarter, when sophomore guard Jolana Shield’s three-pointer less than four minutes into the second half proved to be their only field goal of the quarter — LHS shot 1-for13. “It hurts, and it’s no fun losing for sure, but we put ourselves in that spot,” Wood said.

defense. We played some cat and mouse which was great for us. We do that all the time so we felt comfortable doing that.” The strategic changes and career play from middle blocker Ashley Andrade helped Wichita State rally from its two-set deficit to win the final three sets and end Arkansas’ season with a 22-10 record. Andrade set a school NCAA Tournament record with a personal best and team-season best 23 kills and a .564 hitting percentage. “If I have a middle attacker who can lead the match in points scored, a lot of things have to be

working well for that to happen,” Lamb said. The Shockers bounced back from everything Arkansas sent their way and responded by closing the last three sets strong. Wichita State scored the final six points of the third set to win 25-17. The Shockers recorded the final three points of the fourth set to win 25-23 and closed the match strong by scoring the final five points of the fifth set to win 15-10.

Withey impresses Cali-pal Burton ————

OSU big man says KU’s center ‘more versatile’ than in high school By Jesse Newell

KANSAS C ITY, M O. — Oregon State senior Joe Burton, who hails from Soboba, Calif., has seen quite a change in Kansas University men’s basketball center and San Diego native Jeff Withey since they played against each other in high school. “It’s really amazing how he grew as a player,” Burton said following KU’s

84-78 victory over OSU on Friday at Sprint Center. “He was tall back then and not very skilled, but now he’s more versatile, more skilled.” Burton was able to chat it up with Withey on the floor a couple of times, including once in the second half when the two chuckled together in the lane following a timeout. “It’s always good to play against a good center,” Burton said, “and see what we’re made of.”

Though Withey finished with just three blocks, he still was able to impact OSU’s shooting inside. The Beavers, who came into the game making 52 percent of their twos, connected on just 17 of 44 shots inside the arc against the Jayhawks (39 percent). Still, OSU coach Craig Robinson felt good about his team’s game plan, part of which involved bringing his center to the pe-

rimeter to pull Withey away from the basket. “We didn’t want to just take it in there,” Robinson said, “and let him tee off on us.” Defensively, Robinson was frustrated with the number of easy baskets KU was able to get. The box score indicated that the Jayhawks had 17 combined layups and dunks. “We didn’t want them to do what they did: beat us on blow-bys to the bas-

ket,” Robinson said. “We wanted them to beat us on outside shots.” KU attempted only nine threes, making three. The fifth-year OSU coach said he would leave K.C. thinking KU was “pretty darn good.” “You’ve got some good senior leadership to go with (guard Ben) McLemore,” Robinson said. “I think the sky’s the limit for this program.” Robinson had a lighthearted moment at the

beginning of his news conference. In a small, crowded room, he looked up at the bright camera lights and said, “So this is what it’s like at a Kansas press conference.” The coach left happy with how his players performed. “I’ve always felt they could play with a team like a Kansas,” Robinson said. “Now, they’re going to start thinking that, I hope.”

Then, when that lead had been cut to 64-61 (with nine minutes left), Releford converted a bucket and assist in an 8-0 surge that again opened the lead to 72-61. “He didn’t do anything in the first half,” Self said of Releford, who finished with seven rebounds and five asThey sists to go with his 20 could points. “We have were almost playing four come against five. back and I got onto won that him about it the sec- game.

KANSAS GUARD BEN MCLEMORE LOSES A BALL OUT OF BOUNDS as he is tailed by Oregon State forward Olaf Schaftenaar during the first half. “Coach challenged me at halftime,” Releford said. “(He challenged) all the guards, saying how we hadn’t been attacking the paint, stuff we’d been working on the past week. I noticed that, so I figured I should probably put pressure on the defense to help the team. It opened up for me.” KU, which had a 33-19 lead evaporate at 37-37 in the first half and a 57-44 lead drop to 80-77, didn’t put this one away until McLemore cashed two

free throws with :13.9 left, upping the Jayhawks’ 8077 lead to 82-77. KU held off the Beavers, whose last road win over a Top 10 team was against No. 6 Washington on Jan. 17, 1976. “They could have come back and won that game,” Releford said. “We had the lead, and we could have closed the game. It could have went either way.” KU will meet Colorado at 1 p.m. a week from today in Allen Fieldhouse.

KANSAS CITY, MO. — Kansas University freshman skywalker Ben McLemore stole a pass near midcourt, dribbled through the middle of the lane and slammed the basketball through the goal. The 6-foot-6 St. Louis native’s remarkable dunk gave the Jayhawks a 2918 lead over Oregon State with 8:21 left in the first half of Friday’s 84-78 victory in Sprint Center. “It looked good from where I was standing,” KU coach Bill Self said of the high-flying jam. “Ben was on a roll the first half. The second half, he never really got in the flow.” McLemore scored 21 points off 8-of-14 shooting in 27 minutes. He had 15 points off 6-of-8 shooting the first half alone. His dunk proved to be the individual highlight of the entire game, if not the season. “We were pressuring full court. I saw an opening. I saw my man try to make a good pass to his teammate,” McLemore said. “I reacted real fast, got the steal and took it all the way.” McLemore, who was 0-for-7 from three against San Jose State on Monday, hit six of his first seven shots, including three of four threes. He scored 15 points as KU grabbed a 3319 lead. Unfortunately for KU, McLemore picked up his second foul with 6:18 left in the first half, with KU up by its game-high lead of 14. OSU went on an 18-4 run with McLemore out and tied the contest at 37 with 2:18 left in the half. KU, with a lineup of Jeff Withey, Kevin Young, Rio Adams, Travis Releford and Evan Manning on the court, did outscore the Beavers, 5-2, the remainder of the half to lead 4239 at the break. “I thought, ‘I’ll go ahead and sit him (with two fouls),’ and then it kind of drifted away,” Self said of the lead. “I wasn’t going to put him in with two or three minutes left. That probably wasn’t very smart. “Look at the lineups we had out there,” Self added. “Hey, we’ve never even considered practicing that way as far as, ‘Let’s work with this lineup together.’ I was just trying to find anybody to go out there and give us some positive contributions the last five minutes. To be honest with you, we didn’t find anybody. We were fortunate to be up three at half. That thing was at 14, and it dwindled fast. We didn’t have guys step up and stem the tide so to speak. We had poor play probably when we just needed to be sound that led to their comeback.” O

Remembering Ralph Miller: Legendary Oregon State coach Ralph Miller attended KU, where he played for Phog Allen (1937-41). Miller, who also played quarterback for KU’s football team, won 359 games in 19 years as the head coach at Oregon State before retiring in 1989. “Now when did he finish here, the 40s?” KU coach Bill Self said correctly. “Cindy (Self, wife) and I took the kids on vacation south of L.A. We were hanging out on the street and Ralph Miller’s wife came up and talked to us and all that stuff, which was cool. She had so many fond memories."

Geno’s last stand


When Kansas has the ball Kansas rush offense vs. West Virginia rush defense All signs point to another big day from the Kansas running backs this week against the Mountaineers. West Virginia ranks ninth in the Big 12 in total defense (487 yards per game) and 10th in scoring defense (41 points per game) and gives up an average of 141 yards rushing. Most of the Mountaineers’ struggles on D this season came through the air, but the Jayhawks have run the ball against everybody this season, with James Sims, Tony Pierson and Taylor Cox leading the charge. Sims, who missed three games to open the season, sits just 44 yards away from reaching the 1,000yard mark for the season. You can bet the Jayhawks will be gunning for him to reach that mark today, not only for Sims but also because that gives KU its best and only shot in this one. Edge: Kansas.

WEST VIRGINIA QUARTERBACK GENO SMITH DROPS BACK TO PASS against Iowa State in this file photo from Nov. 23 in Ames, Iowa. The one-time Heisman Trophy front-runner will try to lead the Mountaineers over Kansas today.

KU wary of Mountaineers QB By Matt Tait

MORGANTOWN, W. VA. — On the night of Sept. 29, a few hours after West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith lit up the Baylor Bears for 656 yards and eight touchdowns during a 70-63 victory, college football analyst and 1995 Heisman Trophy winner Eddie George called for a stop to this season’s Heisman race and gave his vote to Smith. In the eight weeks since that showcase performance, which was talked about for days from coast to coast, Smith, a 6-foot-3, 220-pound senior from Miami, has seen his Heisman chances disappear but his numbers continue to climb. It’s not that Smith has slipped much from the torrid start that included 24 touchdowns and zero interceptions during his first six games, rather the fact that the Mountaineers, who once looked like they could run the table during their first season in the Big 12, came crashing back to reality with a five-game losing streak that stretched from Oct. 13 to Nov. 22 and finally was snapped last week with a victory over Iowa State that pushed WVU to 6-5 overall and 3-5 in Big 12 play. “I think sometimes when

you get to be a Heisman candidate like he was, he started pressing a little bit trying to make some things happen,” KU defensive coordinator Dave Campo said. “And they weren’t doing as well as maybe they thought they should after the first five ballgames, and I think it probably affected him a little bit. I know that he started pushing some balls into some spots that he probably shouldn’t.” As the season went on and Smith piled up the gaudy stats, the focus of opposing defenses — not to mention pressure from within — began to center entirely on Smith, who enters today’s 1:30 p.m. kickoff with Kansas University (1-10, 0-8) with 3,597 yards, 37 touchdowns and just five interceptions. Although the huge yardage totals and touchdowns continued to roll in, things were not nearly as easy for Smith, whose few mistakes came at crucial times and led to the losing streak. “The wins and the losses don’t solely fall on the hands of the quarterback,” WVU coach Dana Holgorsen said. “You look at Geno’s stats, they’re as good as anybody in college football. He’s done a great job protecting the football and running the offense. Has it not been enough in specific games? Yes. But that’s the

case for a whole lot of people across the country, as well.” Once the idea of a dream season for his team went out the window and the offense found more success running the ball, Smith returned to form and began to resemble more the quarterback who went wild against Baylor than the guy who tried to force things when they weren’t there in the weeks that followed. Holgorsen said his QB handled himself well through all of the highs and the relative lows. “If Geno wants to play in the NFL, this is the type of thing that he’s gonna have to go through,” Holgorsen said. “And he understands this.” By now, Smith’s Heisman hopes are long gone. Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel is the overwhelming favorite to win the award, and, although Smith’s passing stats are more impressive than “Johnny Football’s” (3,419 yards, 24 TDs, 8 interceptions), the A&M freshman’s 1,181 yards and 19 touchdowns on the ground make him the obvious front-runner. None of the Jayhawks have Heisman votes, but it’s clear that they’re impressed by the WVU leader. “He’s big. He can run,” Campo said. “They don’t run him like the normal spread teams do, but he can scram-

Kansas pass offense vs. West Virginia pass defense Although red-shirt freshman Michael Cummings is expected to make his sixth consecutive start at quarterback, Weis said senior Dayne Crist, who started the first six games of the year, also would play. The reason? In order to try to keep up with WVU’s explosive offense, Weis said KU would have to throw the ball down the field a little more, and Crist gives KU the best shot at doing that. It’s been a rough year for KU’s passing game. Between the struggles of the quarterbacks and the inability of the KU wide receivers to get open and make plays, KU has gotten very little out of its aerial attack all season. If the Jayhawks are going to end that trend, this week certainly seems like their best shot, but it’s hard to envision a scenario in which KU having success through the air is the expectation. Edge: West Virginia.

When West Virginia has the ball West Virginia rush offense vs. Kansas rush defense A few weeks ago, West Virginia senior Tavon Austin, primarily a wide receiver, ran 19 times for 344 yards against Oklahoma. And that completely changed the West Virginia offense, which to that point had been known mostly for its ability to air it out. Austin gives the Mountaineers a dynamic threat in the backfield and has been the perfect complement to running backs Andrew Buie and Shawne Alston. Throw in the fact that WVU quarterback Geno Smith can make plays with his legs, too, and this attack, which averages 172 yards per game on the ground, is just one of the many nightmares for opposing defenses. Edge: West Virginia.

ble. He will run when he has to. He’s got a big arm. He can make all the throws. Every quarterback’s a system quarterback no matter what system they’re in. And he’s very good in that system.” Added sophomore linebacker Ben Heeney: “He’s composed. He’s got a good ball. He puts it on the money most of the time, and he just seems like a leader out there. I think defenses might have adjusted to Geno and it opened West Virginia pass offense up big plays for other people. I vs. Kansas pass defense mean, Geno’s not gonna throw Consider: 3,597 yards, 37 touchdowns and eight touchdowns a game.” Of all the Jayhawks who just five interceptions. Those are the numbers West Virginia QB Geno Smith has put up this have studied Smith this week, looking for any kind of year, numbers that, if not for WVU’s five-game losing streak, surely would have made Smith weakness they can exploit, head coach Charlie Weis a finalist in the Heisman Trophy race.

Raptors 101, Suns 97 TORONTO — DeMar DeRozan scored 23 points, Amir Johnson added 16, and Toronto beat Phoenix to snap a six-game losing streak on Friday night. Kyle Lowry scored 15 points, and Jose Calderon had 13 points and nine assists for the Raptors, who ended Phoenix’s sevengame winning streak in Toronto. The Suns hadn’t lost there since Jan. 4, 2004. Marcin Gortat, Shannon Brown and Jared Dudley all scored 14 points for Phoenix. Goran Dragic had 13, and Michael Beasley chipped in with 12. It was the second straight loss for the Suns, who were routed 117-77 at Detroit on Wednesday. That marked their thirdbiggest margin of defeat in franchise history. Phoenix’s Luis Scola scored the first basket of the fourth quarter, but the Raptors answered with a 7-0 run — including five points from Johnson — to lead 87-78 with 9:04 left. A three by Calderon made it 92-85 with 6:54 remaining before backto-back baskets by Scola cut it to 92-89. Mickael Pietrus, in his Raptors debut, made a three from the corner before Sebastian Telfair and Jermaine O’Neal answered for the Suns to make it 95-93 with 3:53 to go. Phoenix trailed 96-95 with just under two minutes left when Dragic committed a turnover. Johnson finished the breakaway with a running dunk, putting the Raptors ahead by three points. Brown’s layup made it 98-97 with 1:07 left, but the Suns couldn’t take the lead. Gortat missed a shot, and Scola failed on the next two possessions. Lowry grabbed the rebound on Scola’s second miss and was fouled. He made one of two from the line to put Toronto up 9997 with 14 seconds to play.

Nets 98, Magic 86 ORLANDO, FLA. — Joe Johnson had 22 points, and Brooklyn earned its fifth straight victory, holding off Orlando.

They beat the Magic for the third time this season and wrap up their fivegame road trip in Miami on Saturday. Glen Davis had 16 points to lead the Magic, who lost their third straight game. Brooklyn center Brook Lopez missed his first game of the season because of a mild right foot sprain. He is day-to-day. Orlando begins a fivegame road trip Sunday in Los Angeles.

added 12 points for the Knicks, who improved to 6-0 at home and also beat the Wizards for the ninth straight time at Madison Square Garden. Both winning streaks are their longest active against one team. Chandler finished with 10 rebounds but his 5-of8 shooting represented a cold night after the NBA’s leading shooter had made 16 of 17 over his previous two games and came in shooting 71.8 percent for the season. Raymond Felton scored 11 points for the Knicks, who shot 53 percent from the field in their third straight game without starting guard Jason Kidd, who remains out with lower back spasms.

Celtics 96, Trail Blazers 78 BOSTON — Jeff Green scored 19 points, Jason Terry added 17, and Boston cruised to a comfortable win without Rajon Rondo, topping Portland. Rondo served the first game of his two-game suspension for his role in a scuffle Wednesday night against the Brooklyn Nets. Courtney Lee started in his place and finished with 10 points, seven rebounds and five assists. The Celtics never trailed. They carried a 56-33 advantage into the break and took their biggest lead on a 22-foot jumper by Kevin Garnett that made it 65-38 with 8:26 left in the third quarter.

Cavaliers 113, Hawks 111 ATLANTA — Alonzo Gee scored on a putback with less than one second remaining, lifting Cleveland over Atlanta to snap a four-game losing streak. Gee rebounded a missed three-pointer by Dion Waiters and quickly followed up with the winning shot. The Hawks, out of timeouts, couldn’t manage a shot before time expired. Jeremy Pargo led Cleveland with 22 points, including three straight baskets late in the game. Waiters scored 21 and Anderson Varejao had 20 points and 18 rebounds for Cleveland, which earned its second road win in 11 tries.

GEORGETOWN FORWARD MIKAEL HOPKINS (3) BATTLES FOR THE BALL against Tennessee forward Kenny Hall (20) during the second half of Georgetown’s 37-36 victory Friday in Washington.

No. 20 Georgetown 37, Tennessee 36 WASHINGTON — Georgetown and Tennessee held each other scoreless over the final four minutes, and the Hoyas beat the Volunteers in a display of abysmal shooting Friday night in the SEC/Big East Challenge. On a night when the “challenge” part of the event was the task of simply putting the ball in the basket, the teams combined to make just 7 of 20 shots — from the free throw line. The field-goal shooting was just as horrid, with the Vols hitting 33 percent and the Hoyas 36 percent. Appropriately enough, the final possession of the game consisted of an air ball by Tennessee’s Skylar McBee. The rebound went out of bounds to the Vols, and Jordan McRae’s three-pointer at the buzzer clanged off the rim. No player scored in double figures for either team. Georgetown (5-1) had a great stretch last week to move into the Top 25, beating then-No. 11 UCLA and losing in overtime to top-ranked Indiana on back-to-back nights. Tennessee (4-2) came in with a two-game winning streak after a mid-November loss to Oklahoma State. Neither team looked like a winner Friday night. The Vols started 4 for 22 from the field and late in the first half had nearly as many fouls (10) as points (11). The half ended with McRae putting up with air ball on a baseline runner. The rebound went to teammate Trae Golden, who hit a lucky bank shot at the buzzer to complete a half-ending 7-0 run and give the Vols an 18-16 lead — even though they were shooting 27 percent. Georgetown did no better, also shooting 27 percent and going without a field goal for the last 10:13 of the half. Mikael Hopkins had an especially miserable time, missing three easy layups and four free throws in the first 20 minutes. The Hoyas got some momentum early in the second half, using their defense to spur a 15-5 run capped by a nice baseline move by Markel Starks, making the score 31-23 with 12 minutes to play. Then the Vols found a rhythm for the only time in the game, converting back-to-back transition baskets and taking the lead when McBee’s 3-pointer ended a 9-0 run. From there it was backand-forth, with the team trading fouls, turnovers and the occasional basket. An offensive foul on Jabril Trawick with 1:18 to play gave the Vols the ball trailing by one, but Jarnell Stokes didn’t come close with an air ball jumper with the shot clock running down.

Georgetown grabbed the rebound and called a timeout, but the Hoyas gave the ball right back when Otto Porter took his eyes off a simple pass near midcourt. The ball went out of bounds, and Tennessee had 20.9 seconds on the clock to set up a final possession. No matter. The Vols still couldn’t make a shot. Georgetown starter Nate Lubick suffered an apparent injury to his left arm in the first half did not play after halftime.

The Chieftains (1-0, 1-0 Kaw Valley League) led by one point at the end of the first quarter, but outscored the Lions (0-1, 0-1) by a 22-8 margin in the second. THS scored the first 12 points of the second half to put the game on ice. Four Chieftains reached double figures in the team’s season opener. Hannah Kemp and Katelyn Waldeier scored 10 points apiece. Walker and Waldeier tied for the team lead in rebounds with seven each. Defensively, the Chieftains held Lansing to a 22.2 field goal percentage, including just 9.5 percent from beyond the three-point arc. Morgan Bromell led the Lions with 13 points.

Baldwin 56, Jefferson North 43 WINCHESTER — Baldwin fought back from a large early deficit to defeat defending 2A state champions Jefferson County North.

Baldwin 63, JCN 43 WINCHESTER — Baldwin pulled away early against overmatched JCN. The 4A Bulldogs built a double-digit lead, 14-4, with 2:30 to play in the first quarter and were never threatened by the 2A Chargers. Senior Caleb Gaylord led the way for Baldwin, scoring 18 points.

No. 6 Syracuse 91, Arkansas 82 FAYETTEVILLE, ARK. — James Southerland scored a career-high 35 points to lead the Orange over Arkansas. Southerland, who was a career-best 9-for-13 on three-pointers, helped the Orange (5-0) win in their first visit to Bud Walton Arena. The senior bested his former career marks of 22 points, set against Princeton earlier this season, and five threes, which he had as a freshman against Robert Morris. Brandon Triche and Michael Carter-Williams added 17 points each, and C.J. Fair had 12 for Syracuse — which was 11 of 26 from beyond the arc. Williams nearly had a triple-double, adding 10 rebounds and nine assists. BJ Young led the Razorbacks (3-3) with 25 points, 19 in the first half, while Marshawn Powell added 19. The loss was Arkansas’ third straight. The Orange led by as many as 15 points in the first half, sparked by Southerland’s early onslaught. The 6-foot-8 forward, who hit four threepointers in each of his last two games, hit his first five from behind the arc and Syracuse overcame an early onslaught of emotion from the frenzied Razorbacks — who fed off the crowd of 19,259.

What’s the right reaction when someone makes fun of your religious beliefs? Laughter can lead to conversation

DICK BOTT still enjoys being at the controls of the network he founded 50 years ago.

Faith in the radio Bott’s network started 50 years ago in K.C. By McClatchy-Tribune

KANSAS CITY, MO. — Dick Bott started his first Christian radio station in the basement of the former Blue Ridge Mall, sandwiched between a barber shop and a child care center. Fifty years later, the Bott Radio Network consists of 91 stations reaching into 15 states, with a combined audience of more than 50 million people. Programs also can be heard worldwide by satellite, on the Internet and through mobile digital technology. Ever since he was a little boy growing up in Minnesota, Bott had a love for radio. It fascinated him that someone could speak into a microphone and be heard at other locations. After marrying, he and wife, Sherley, went to San Francisco in 1952, where her dad had a radio station and a job for Bott, who began honing his radio skills. In 1957, the couple bought a station in Monterey, Calif., that featured pop music, and it was a success. “But it just seemed less than fulfilling,” Bott said. “My wife and I were both Christians. And it seemed that there would be a way we could serve the needs and interests of the Christian community.” Bott said they wanted to encourage that community with Bible-based programs. He said they chose Kansas City because Bott thought the city’s population was large enough to support a Christian station. With that in mind, the couple moved to Kansas City in 1962 with their four children and a dog. Their dream, Kansas City’s Christian Voice (KCCV), 1510 AM, was born the same year. It featured some of the country’s top preachers and evangelists and call-in shows about current issues and events. Today the network serves Kansas City at 760 AM and 92.3 FM. In honor of its 50th anniversary this month and its beginnings in Kansas City, the Botts will add another local signal, 101.5 FM, in December. “I had no idea I would end up with 91 stations,” said Bott, 79, who is chairman of the board. “Size was not the goal,” but to give his life to something he believes in.

Bott’s son Rich Bott, 57, said he reviews each program that wants to join the network. “They must be Biblecentered, of high ethics and professional quality,” he said. Some detractors consider the network a wing of evangelical or conservative Christianity. The elder Bott makes no excuses for the fact that although many denominations are represented, programs that do not fit the network’s format do not find a home there. From its format comes strong teachings about “the sanctity of human life and the traditional definition of marriage to be between a man and a woman,” he said. This is biblical, and he wouldn’t accept any program that went against those biblical interpretations, he said. In 2008, Dick Bott was inducted into the National Religious Broadcasters Hall of Fame, which is the highest honor of the organization with 1,400 member ministries. He also is one of the longest-serving members of its board. That same year he was awarded an honorary doctorate of humane letters from Carver Baptist Bible College and Seminary in Kansas City. As a teenager, Rich Bott learned about Christian radio by working at the station. He went to college and earned his master’s degree from Harvard Business School, then went to work at the network full time. While the elder Bott remains chairman of the board, Rich Bott has moved from executive vice-president to president and chief executive officer. He also serves as chairman of the National Religious Broadcasters and is on several other boards. Both men believe that the network’s success is because God has blessed them for making it possible for God’s word to be proclaimed. For the future, Rich Bott said the network will continue to take steps to help fulfill Jesus’ command to “go into all the world and preach the Gospel.” The new media tools will make this even more possible, he said. “What we have tried to do is to make the main thing the main thing,” Dick Bott said. “And the main thing is the word of God.”

Jeff Barclay, lead pastor, Christ Community Church, 1100 Kasold Drive: I don’t know if I ever laughed at the things I believe today about Jesus and the Bible, but I do know I didn’t always believe them. So if making fun of my religious beliefs is someone’s way of asking questions, while simultaneously dealing with their own doubts and fears, then I invite anyone’s raucous musings. I believe man bears the image of God. I also believe that God so loved the world that He sent His Son to be born as a man. His name was Jesus. He was crucified for my sins. In confessing those things, I understand that I can be restored in my relationship with God. In believing those things, I don’t become a better person than anyone else, but I do become a new person. As those are extraordinary things to believe, I totally understand the laughter that a doubter might direct at me. I don’t think the things I believe are funny, but I smilingly acknowledge

that I am often a caricature, rather than a reflection of my beliefs. So sometimes I join in when Barclay people make fun of me or the things I believe. Laughter certainly relieves the tension and possibly opens the door for real conversation because I take what I believe very seriously and enjoy talking about it. While I think I can hold my own in a discussion about my beliefs, winning an argument about my beliefs is not the best way to convince someone to change theirs. Laughter can reveal my misrepresentations or unveil another’s misperceptions. Often people are laughing at something that has never been explained to them. Jesus Christ, the One in whom I believe, managed well the contradictions of laughter. It would be foolishly funny for me to think I could avoid the mocking that He could not. — Send email to Jeff Barclay at

Christ himself endured mockery The Rev. John McFarland, pastor, Christ Covenant Reformed Presbyterian Church, 2312 Harvard Road: In this world, you will have tribulation: If they persecuted Me, they will persecute you; Don’t be surprised if the world hates you; All will hate you because of Me. Jesus promised His followers these hardships, the lightest of which involves ridicule. Jesus turned self-centered logic on its head, claiming, “Blessed are you when people hate, exclude, and revile you, spurning your name as evil on account of Me!” In a profound sense, it is normal when Christians are mocked for their faith. Some biblical perspectives under trials: Christ Himself is close to us in these times; we go to Him outside the camp, in those places of shame. When we find His comfort, we pass it on, encouraging those who suffer in deeper ways. Nov. 11 was the “International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church.” Some 100 million Christians suffer today, far more than teasing, for publicly identifying with Christ. Those of us who are

not being persecuted physically must “remember their chains.” Anger toward critics McFarland is sinful and unproductive. The Bible describes the unbelieving state as a blindness, a deadness of heart, being entrapped by the great enemy. It is God’s work to make the blind see, create a beating heart of flesh and set captives free. We rejoice to be agents of His change, vessels in God’s merciful hands. To be ready for these encounters, we study His truth, prepare to make an “apologia,” lovingly “tear down [false] strongholds” in the gracious spirit of Jesus. One of Christianity’s greatest foes, Pharisee Saul, became its great champion, the Apostle Paul. Through the Gospel’s transforming power, that story repeats itself around the world, even today. Simply, “right reaction” includes prayer, rejoicing, love and words of grace. May God do in you what He’s done in me! — Send email to John McFarland at

Holiday stress becomes amplified for Alzheimer’s caregivers By Ben Wolford Sun Sentinel

FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. — Arnold Thaler was a corporate executive known for solving problems and jetting to the Far East on business. He was the best man in his son’s wedding, and his wife planned to travel with him in their golden years. Then Alzheimer’s disease, a neurological con-

dition with no cure and no survivors, took hold of Thaler, 74, and added a new, unexpected strain on his family. “Today he is someone who needs full-time, 24/7 care,” said his son, Scott Thaler, 43, a Fort Lauderdale, Fla., advertising executive. “He doesn’t have the ability to communicate with any of us anymore.” The disease’s tolls are

crushing to its victims but also devastate the people who love them, the children- and spouses-turnedcaregivers, many of whom will mark the holidays this year under the pall of emotional and financial stress. Nearly 1 million people in Florida alone are caregivers to an Alzheimer’s patient, most of whom report high levels of stress and consequent health complications, the national

Alzheimer’s Association said in its annual report. “South Florida is ground zero for Alzheimer’s disease,” said Dr. Mark Brody, a Delray Beach, Fla., neurologist at Brain Matters Research, which undertakes clinical trials for medicine companies. As patients progress through the disease, they steadily lose brain function. Their memories flicker and motor skills slip. In later

stages, victims lose their speech and then the capacity for basic personal care. Close family members become strangers and, eventually, unpaid home aides. In Florida, caregivers provide $13.8 billion in uncompensated care, and nationally about one in 10 are forced to stop working, the Alzheimer’s Association reported. For these reasons, and because brain diseases are

complex, health care for Alzheimer’s patients often becomes a family affair. “One of our rules is a new patient has to come with a family member or a caregiver,” said Dr. Marc Agronin, a geriatric psychiatrist at Miami Jewish Health Systems. Agronin’s brand of health care involves close personal contact with his patients, which he says is essential — and difficult to monetize.

Girl’s ex-friend bullying her at school Annie’s Mailbox

Marcy Sugar and Kathy Mitchell

ship with my boyfriend. It took a while for me to forgive her, and I never forgot. After that fight, I’d had enough. She was constantly criticizing me, making mean jokes about me and ditching me for other people. But, Annie, she’s driven away all of my friends. I feel so alone at school. Alicia has already found a new group, and they make fun of me and draw mean pictures of me. While I don’t miss Alicia, I do miss the friendship. Any advice? — Lost and Lonely

Movies make Christmas countdown

Dear Lost: You are the victim of “mean girl” bullying. Alicia must have been terribly jealous to go after whatever boy was interested in you. We know it’s small comfort, but in time, you will be stronger for this experience and will understand what true friendship is. In the meantime, talk to your school counselor about the bullying, which should stop. Also, look to make friendships with others, both in and out of school. And hold your head up. This, too, shall pass. We promise.

Dear RLS: We aren’t sure what you object to. Are these restaurant dinners supposed to be a way of reciprocating for your home meals? If so, they are not doing the job. But in general, it is neither poor manners nor a burden to ask for separate checks, provided you do so when you Dear Annie: We order. have two groups of friends with whom we dine about every other month in restaurants.

being right — at least for today. Tonight: Remain unavailable. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)  Focus on a friendship, and try to avoid any heavy conflicts. Others can get stuck on expressing their different points of view. Tonight: Off with a jovial pal. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  You want to claim your power, and others let you know that your attitude is unacceptable. You might get into a conflict, or you could choose to ignore the situation. Tonight: In the limelight. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  Speak your mind, and others will listen. Count on repeating the conversation at a later date. Tonight: Your smile is a winner. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)  A loved one makes certain requests. Ask yourself if you can respond positively. Tonight: Stay calm. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)  Defer to others, if possible. You might disagree about certain issues, so be careful. Tonight: Sorting through invitations. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  Get into a project and allow others to do their thing. Maintain a caring and neutral stance, as people easily could become triggered and very disagreeable. Tonight: Know that you don’t need to do anything. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)  While others moan and groan, you work to find solutions. Though many of your friends might not hear your ideas, some will. Tonight: Let the good times roll. — The astrological forecast should be read for entertainment only.

Dear Annie: Over the summer, I had a falling out with my best friend, “Alicia.” I had invited all of our friends to a party, and one of them brought along a boy, “Andrew,” whom she specifically wanted me to meet. I liked him. But Alicia literally pushed me out of the way so she could talk to him and made a point of diverting his attention away from me. I didn’t get too upset about it.
