Charlie Weis to be KU‘s next football coach


401(k)-style pension plan plotted for KPERS

By Scott Rothschild

TOPEKA — The traditional pension plan for future and some current public employees would be eliminated and replaced with a 401(k)-style system under a recommendation finalized Thursday by a state commission. Proponents of the plan called it a responsible fix to a long-term funding problem in the Kansas Public Employees Retirement System. “We made a major step forward,” said Sen. Jeff King, R-Independence. He said no future generation of Kansans will find themselves in the “financial hole that we are in today.” But opponents said the proposal placed retirement risks onto public employees and would produce financially strapped retirees. Sen. Laura Kelly, D-Topeka, said she was “stunned” by the We made plan. “This is a recipe for disasa major step ter,” she said. The recommendation goes forward.” next to the full Legislature. Gov. Sam Brownback, a Republican, — Sen. Jeff King, has repeatedly said he supports a R-Independence system that looks like the one being offered by the KPERS study commission. Under the recommendation, KPERS employees, such as teachers and government workers, hired after June 30, 2013, and those workers not vested in KPERS by that date would be enrolled in a defined contribution plan in which they would be required to contribute 6 percent This is a of their wages. The state would contribute 1 percent the first year recipe for and increase its contribution by one-half percent each year until disaster.” it reaches a maximum of 5 per— Sen. Laura Kelly, cent in the ninth year of work. Currently, pensions are fi- D-Topeka nanced through contributions from employees and employers as well as investments made by the system. Employees who have retired receive a “defined benefit” based on how long they worked and how much they made on average in the final years of employment. For example, a typical worker earning $40,000 a year who worked for 20 years will receive an annual pension of $14,000. KPERS has more than 250,000 working and retired members and handles investments of more than $13 billion. But a devastating downturn in investments in 2008 during the recession, plus years of the state failing to contribute sufficient amounts, has left the system with a long-term funding gap between assets and promised benefits. Kelly, however, argued that a bill approved during the last legislative session provided the needed revenue in future years to put the plan in actuarial balance.

CHARLIE WEIS, 55, the offensive coordinator at the University of Florida, gets off the Kansas University plane at the Lawrence Airport around 8:30 p.m. Thursday night. Weis has agreed to become the 37th head football coach in KU history. KU will hold a press conference to introduce Weis today. Read more about Weis in Sports, page 1B.

Résumé includes BCS and Super Bowls, Notre Dame, NFL By Matt Tait

When Kansas University athletic director Sheahon Zenger left town on Nov. 30 in search of a replacement for former KU football coach Turner Gill, he vowed not to return to Lawrence until he had his guy. Thursday, just before 8:45 p.m., Zenger hopped off the university plane at the Lawrence airport and set foot on Lawrence soil for the first time since leaving. A couple of steps behind him was new KU coach Charlie Weis. “Great to see you all out here this late,” said Weis to a group of seven members of the media awaiting his arrival. “That’s good for us.” In all, KU’s coaching search

spanned 11 days, multiple states and wasn’t finalized until Thursday. Through it all, Zenger, who said he went about the search in a unique way from the start, landed a coach with the kind of résumé that measures up to just about anyone. “It’s good to be home,” Zenger told the Journal-World less than an hour after stepping off the plane. “And it’s great to bring a man like Charlie Weis with me.” In Weis, Zenger delivers to Lawrence a coach with 16 years of experience as an NFL assistant — with four Super Bowl rings — and five seasons as the head coach at Notre Dame. After serving as the offensive coordinator with the Kansas City Chiefs in 2010, Weis spent the 2011 season as the

offensive coordinator at Florida. Prior to that, he coached at Notre Dame from 2005-09, where he led the Irish to a 3527 record and three bowl appearances, and made stops in the NFL with the New York Giants, New York Jets and New England Patriots. While coaching under Bill Parcells in the early 1990s, Weis helped the Giants win Super Bowl XXV in 1991. A decade later, he teamed with New England coach Bill Belichick to lead the Patriots to Super Bowl titles in 2002, 2004 and 2005. Zenger was not the only member of the KU community excited by Weis’ hiring. As word began to spread across campus and reaction poured in from current and former Jayhawks across the country,

KU men’s basketball coach Bill Self applauded the beginning of a new era of Kansas football. “I think Kansas fans should be excited about Sheahon’s football hire today,” Self said. “We hired a guy that has an unbelievable résumé and has experienced success at the highest levels. In his first two years at Notre Dame, he coached in BCS bowls. With the Patriots, he won three Super Bowls. With the Giants, he won one Super Bowl and has participated in another Super Bowl. He’s been a coach for a long time and obviously has a great mind. I think this is one that will definitely ripple waters in our league.” Weis will be officially announced as the 37th football coach in KU history at a news conference set for 5 p.m. today.

Good Samaritan drops $2,000 diamond in red kettle Sara Shepherd

SHAWNEE — A Salvation Army kettle from Shawnee turned up a sparkling surprise when workers opened it to count the day’s donations: a diamond. A jeweler appraised the diamond Thursday morning, citing a retail value of $2,000, said Michele Heaver, The Salvation Army Corps Officer for Kansas City, Kan.

“That could help fill our pantry, help many families who come in for food assistance,” Heaver said. “It could help with four or five utility bills, or help a couple people pay their rent.” Someone dropped the gem in the kettle Nov. 30 outside the Walmart at Shawnee Mission Parkway and Maurer Road, Heaver said. When they opened the kettle to count its contents, Salvation Army volunteers discovered a piece

the diamond but had yet to determine how to go about it. Discussions have included the possibility of the jeweler putting the diamond in a setting and helping the charity auction it. Heaver said the volunteer at the Walmart kettle didn’t report anything out of the ordinary and probably didn’t even notice the unusual drop. Heaver said The Salvation Army has discovered rings in their kettles — they can

Converting to privatesector style retirement plans may be good for higher-paid workers but will leave lowand middle-wage employees with little to retire on, she said. She said the state of West Virginia tried a similar conversion and found many employees were retiring with about $35,000 in total benefits. “You know what that makes them? That makes them poor. Who takes care of the poor and the elderly? The state,” she said. But King said the transition better reflected the modern work environment where people change jobs more frequently. They will be able to move their retirement accounts to other jobs, he said. He said he believed public employees will benefit more under the proposed plan. On another matter, the commission was unanimous in recommending elimination of a golden pension perk that Kansas legislators enjoy. Currently, legislators, for


ACLU argues abortion insurance law discriminatory By Roxana Hegeman Associated Press

WICHITA — The American Civil Liberties Union is defending its claim that a new Kansas law restricting insurance coverage for abortion discriminates against women, urging a federal judge to reject a request by the state to prohibit that argument at trial. In asking for a partial ruling that would block the ACLU’s legal argument, Kansas contends it has a legitimate state interest in “promoting childbirth over abortion.” It says the state has an interest in controlling insurance costs and in ensuring women are “fully informed” about the cost of abortion. In court documents filed Wednesday, the ACLU stood by its argument that the new state law violates the U.S. Constitution’s Equal Protection Clause. It contends the law prohibits insurance companies from offering women comprehensive policies for all their health care needs, while men can obtain such coverage, including sex-specific health needs as prostate cancer treatment. The ACLU’s latest filing comes amid efforts by attorneys for Insurance Commissioner Sandy Praeger to bar the sex discrimination claim from being raised in a lawsuit challenging the new law’s constitutionality. The law, which took effect July 1, prohibits insurance companies from offer-

ing abortion coverage as part of general health plans, except when a woman’s life is at risk. Kansas patients wanting such coverage must buy supplemental policies covering only abortion. If U.S. District Judge Wesley Brown grants the state’s request for partial judgment, the ACLU’s legal challenge would be narrowed to the question of whether the new law unconstitutionally violates women’s due process rights, including the rights to privacy and liberty, when seeking abortion coverage. The ACLU said the Kansas statute treats women differently than men and creates legal and economic discrepancies based on sex. It contends the act discriminates against all women because virtually any woman could need abortion care due to unintended pregnancy, rape, fetal anomaly or a serious health problem. The ACLU also took issue with the state’s claim that the new insurance restrictions are related to a legitimate state interest. The group acknowledged that while the Supreme Court has repeatedly recognized a state interest in promoting potential life, it has never recognized that women should be required to pay more for private health insurance for the purpose of expressing the “state’s disdain for abortion.” It argued the law is punitive in nature and creates a restriction on access to abor-

tion that did not previously exist. “Here, the act is all burden and no benefit: it strips comprehensive insurance policies of abortion coverage and forces women to pay more for that coverage or pay for an abortion out of pocket, while at the same time it does nothing to inform women of their decision,” attorneys for the ACLU wrote. ACLU also argued against the state’s claim that it has an interest in controlling health insurance costs, saying the law could actually increase insurance premiums because the costs of prenatal care and childbirth far exceed the costs of abortion services. Even if excluding abortion did save insurance companies money, there is nothing in the law requiring them to lower their premiums as a result. The group was even more caustic in its criticism of the state’s argument that it has a state interest in ensuring that “women are fully informed of the actual monetary costs of abortion” before facing an unintended pregnancy. It called that argument an offensive suggestion that women only have abortions because insurance pays for it. The ACLU said the state’s argument supports its contention that the state is “hostile to women — it harkens back to outmoded stereotypes about women’s ability to make decisions and their role in society.”

BRIEFLY Foundation donates $150K to Med School The Dane G. Hansen Foundation, of Logan, will donate $150,000 to provide support for scholarships, facilities and equipment at Kansas University’s School of Medicine-Salina campus. The Salina campus opened this fall with its first class of eight first-year medical students. “A significant portion of the gift will be used for muchneeded improvements in our medical school building and for the purchase of classroom equipment,” said William Cathcart-Rake, director of the Salina campus, in a written statement. “The remainder will be used for scholarship support for students enrolled on the Salina campus of KU School of Medicine who express a preference for practicing medicine in northwest Kansas.” The school is housed in space provided by Salina Regional Health Center. The gift will count toward Far Above: The Campaign for Kansas, scheduled for a public kickoff in April 2012.

EU tries for new eurozone accord European Union leaders failed to get the bloc’s 27 members to back a change to the EU treaty, and the 17 eurozone countries are now trying to reach their own accord, an EU official said today. Other non-euro countries are invited to join the new treaty, which is meant to set up much tighter rules on national fiscal policy for the 17 countries that use the euro in an attempt to solve the worsening debt crisis, the official said. The official was speaking on condition of anonymity to discuss confidential information. Germany and France in particular had heralded the new treaty basis as an important step to emerge from the crisis, which has already dragged Greece, Portugal and Ireland into multibillion euro bailouts, but the failure to get all 27 EU countries to agree will likely be seen as a huge setback for European unity.

Drunken driver faces 10-year sentence By George Diepenbrock

A Mexican national accused of re-entering the country illegally after killing a woman in a 2005 Lawrence drunken-driving crash faces a maximum sentence of 10 years in federal prison. Douglas County District Judge Kay Huff on Thursday ordered Adan

Cruz-Santos, 29, to be transferred to federal custody after she sentenced him to t h r e e Cruz-Santos months in jail for his third DUI conviction involving an Aug. 21 traffic stop in Law-

rence. Cruz-Santos has spent more than 90 days in jail since his August arrest in the new Douglas County case. Cruz-Santos was deported in February 2010 after serving prison time for an involuntary manslaughter and DUI conviction. He struck and killed Jodie Hatzenbihler, a 25-year-old nurse from Olathe, early on April 9,

2005, as she was walking across Sixth Street after leaving Cadillac Ranch, 2515 W. Sixth St. The 2005 fatality was his second DUI conviction. “What I find particularly egregious is not the fact that he re-entered the United States but the fact that he continued to get behind the wheel while he was very intoxicated,” Assistant Douglas

More drivers texting at wheel For all the criticism and new legal bans, texting by drivers just keeps increasing, especially among younger motorists. About half of American drivers between 21 and 24 say they’ve thumbed messages or emailed from the driver’s seat. And what’s more, many drivers don’t think it’s dangerous when they do it — only when others do. A national survey, the first government study of its kind on distracted driving, and other data released Thursday by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration underscore the difficulty authorities face in discouraging texting and cellphone talking while driving. At any given moment last year on America’s streets and highways, nearly one in every 100 car drivers was texting, emailing, surfing the Web or otherwise using a hand-held electronic device, the safety administration said. And those activities spiked 50 percent over the previous year, even as states rush to ban the practices. Last month, Pennsylvania became the 35th state to forbid texting while driving. In 2010 there were an estimated 3,092 deaths in crashes affected by a wide range of driver distractions, from eating meals to thumbing email, the safety administration said.

Corzine distances from firm’s downfall Summoned by Congress, Jon Corzine embraced a bold strategy Thursday to distance himself from MF Global’s fall and $1.2 billion in missing clients’ money: Answer each question. Be courteous. And don’t huddle with your lawyer before replying. He said very little. Nevertheless, it was a risky strategy, even for a risk-taking financial executive. Anything Corzine might say could be used against him in a courtroom, should he ever be charged in the MF Global case. Yet the former CEO of the securities firm never declined to answer questions by invoking his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination. The one-time senator and New Jersey governor was subpoenaed by his former colleagues to explain how MF Global collapsed just over a month ago in the eighth-largest bankruptcy in U.S. history. It’s the first time in more than 100 years that Congress has subpoenaed a former senator to testify, according to Senate historian Don Ritchie.

was his job,” Billings said. During her tenure, Billings has been involved with numerous events, convention business, Billings attraction of youth sports tournaments, and promoting Lawrence as a destination for film crews, most notably the 1983 TV movie “The Day After,” which portrayed Lawrence following a nuclear attack. “Judy Billings has, in many ways, put Lawrence on the map,” Deanell Tacha, chair of the Destination Management Inc. board, said in a statement. “Visitors and tourism have increased exponentially because of her leadership.” Billings said she always tried to take a balanced approach to increasing the community’s tourism industry. “I personally never have wanted our town to become known as a tourist town,” Billings said. “But I do want our town to be able to take advantage of oppor-

tunities that visitors bring. We want to pay attention to visitors, and we want visitors to come to our community with money.” In 1998, Billings, then-County Commissioner Charles Jones and others began working on the idea of winning a National Heritage Area Designation from the U.S. National Park Service for Lawrence and the role it played leading up to the U.S. Civil War. The idea grew to include 29 eastern Kansas counties and 12 western Missouri counties. The area was designated as the Freedom’s Frontier National Heritage Area in 2006. Billings said Lawrence is well-positioned to see increased tourism from those efforts. The heritage area has its headquarters and a permanent display in the Carnegie Library building in downtown Lawrence. Billings also predicted that the efforts would result in a stronger Watkins Community Museum of History and growing interest in other sites such as the Black Jack Battlefield near Baldwin City.

I’m really going to have to do this program for alcohol to rehabilitate myself.” Kemple said she and Hatzenbihler’s family members were still skeptical of his words. She said Cruz-Santos’ blood-alcohol level was well above the legal limit after his August traffic stop in which he gave police an alias, Alvaro Altamirano Cortez. “How is it after you kill someone doing this — if that doesn’t shock you and wake you up to change your life, what will?” Kemple said. He pleaded no contest Oct. 27 in the new Douglas County case, and a federal grand jury then indicted Cruz-Santos on one count of illegally re-entering the country after he was convicted of a felony. Hatzenbihler’s family members plan to ask federal prosecutors to push for the 10-year maximum federal prison sentence. Kemple is credited with discovering Cruz-Santos was the same man convicted for Hatzenbihler’s death because he was arrested in August under the alias. His real name came up under an ID number on some documentation so she compared his current mug shot to an older one. Prosecutors also confirmed his identity through a fingerprint analysis, she said. The federal indictment charges him under both names. No hearings have been set yet in the federal case. Huff also ordered CruzSantos to pay a $2,500 fine for his third DUI conviction. — Reporter George Diepenbrock can be reached at 832-7144. Follow him at Twitter. com/gdiepenbrock.


“There is a lot of tourism potential in the future,” Billings said. “It is not going to happen overnight. But we’re already getting some good national attention. “The key will be that we’ll have to remain creative and really market ourselves. In this business, it definitely is out of sight, out of mind.” Billings said the Destination Management Board plans to begin interviewing for the president and CEO position in late January, and hopes to have the position filled by mid-February. Billings said she plans to remain in the Lawrence community after retirement. — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362. Follow him at Twitter. com/clawhorn_ljw.

man. “There are no suspects identified, and the incident is still under investigation,â€? Sarna said. The second one was reported at 3:35 a.m. Thursday by a Lawrence man who said he was stabbed by an unknown suspect in the downtown area. The man had a minor cut to his finger and was treated and released from LMH, Sarna said. • A 32-year-old Topeka man accused in a Douglas County sex crime case agreed to be taken into custody Thursday as prosecutors were trying to revoke his bond. Prosecutors Wednesday presented evidence suggesting the man had violated conditions of his $75,000 bond by being around the victim’s family both in Lawrence and Florida after he was charged with aggravated criminal sodomy and accused of molesting a 5-year-old boy in April. The suspect was the boyfriend of the boy’s mother, who reported the alleged event. The Journal-World generally does not identify sex crime suspects unless they are convicted. Defense attorney Sarah Swain disputed the suspect was with the family in Lawrence but said her client would go into custody while she investigates allegations about Florida. A trial is scheduled for April. • Franklin County Attorney Heather Jones said Thursday afternoon she had filed charges against two men who were arrested and accused of robbing a Dollar General store at knifepoint Tuesday evening in Ottawa. Ottawa police said Wednesday night they arrested Kyle White, 18, and Christian Ream, 20, both of Ottawa. Police had asked for the public’s help in finding suspects Wednesday. The two men are alleged to have entered the store at

store located at 805 Mass. St. Police responded to a call at 6:25 p.m. that a white male had used a knife while stealing a purse from the store. A police dispatcher said the suspect is in his 20s, wore a black coat and blue jeans, and drove off in an older model blue hatchback. • Douglas County prosecutors Thursday filed charges against a 32-year-old Lawrence man accused of threatening his girlfriend with a knife Wednesday night during a domestic disturbance. Prosecutors charged Willie James Richardson with aggravated assault, making a criminal threat and domestic battery. Sgt. Matt Sarna, a Lawrence police spokesman, said police were called just before 11 p.m. Wednesday to the 1400 block of Legends Circle. The woman, 33, alleged her boyfriend hit her and threatened her with a knife. The woman initially declined medical attention, but she was later taken to Lawrence Memorial Hospital for treatment of injuries not believed to be life-threatening, Sarna said. • Lawrence police are investigating two separate incidents in which two men showed up at Lawrence Memorial Hospital saying they’d been stabbed. The first one occurred just before 8 p.m. Wednesday when a 21-year-old Lawrence man alleged he was stabbed as he walked in the 700 block of West Ninth Street. The man said he had driven himself to the hospital, and he was being treated for injuries not believed to be life-threatening, said Sgt. Matt Sarna, a police spokes-

8:41 p.m. Tuesday brandishing cutting instruments and demanding the contents of the cash register, and two female employees, ages 46 and 35, received minor injuries during the robbery. Jones said the two men are expected to appear in court on the charges sometime today. â&#x20AC;˘ A first appearance has been set for a youth who is accused of attacking a fellow McLouth High School student last month in the school parking lot. The youth is charged with battery, according to documents provided to the victimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father by the county attorneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office in Jefferson County. An official with the Jefferson County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office declined to release information about the incident because it involved juveniles. And the person handling the case in the county attorneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office is not available until Monday, an official said. The victimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father said his daughterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nose was broken and surgery is planned later this month to repair it. McLouth Superintendent Steve Splichal confirmed an incident occurred in November and Principal Mike Bogard investigated it and then turned it over to local authorities. Splichal said â&#x20AC;&#x153;consequences were in accordance with school policy and the student code of conductâ&#x20AC;? but declined to discuss the situation further. The victimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father said the incident occurred after his daughter had participated in the Veterans Day Parade on Nov. 11 in Leavenworth with the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s marching band. The incident occurred at his daughterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vehicle after the band returned to McLouth, he said. The suspectâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first appearance is Monday in the Jefferson County Courthouse in Oskaloosa.

Wichita men sentenced for robbery of 3 KU students By George Diepenbrock

A Douglas County judge Thursday sentenced two Wichita men to serve nearly 11 years in prison for robbing three female Kansas University students last year at a Lawrence apartment. “I don’t have to tell you that what you did was horrible,” District Judge Paula Martin told the two men. Assistant district attorney Deborah Moody read a letter from one of the three victims who said she and her roommates COURTS were held at gunpoint and ordered to get on the floor. The victim also said she had a bruise on her arm where one of the robbers had grabbed her. “The worst part, I trust no one and think everyone could be an attacker,” wrote the woman, who said she suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder. D’Andre W. Williams and Jerome DeShaun Tucker, both 21, could have been sentenced to serve 20 years in prison, but Martin followed a plea agreement when sentencing the men. But each man’s defense attorney said the sentences weren’t fair because Michael Hammond — a Kansas University student at the time who recruited them to rob a suspected drug dealer in the 1100 block of Louisiana Street — received 60 days in jail and probation. Another codefendant, D’Andre Tomlin, has not yet been sentenced in the case. “(Hammond) is the ring leader,” said Tucker’s defense attorney Greg Robinson. “He’s the one who set up the whole thing.” Hammond, also 21, pleaded no contest earlier this year to two counts of conspiracy to commit burglary. During the Dec. 2 robbery, while Tucker waited in the car, Tomlin and Williams entered the wrong apartment and held the women at gunpoint, stealing a television, laptop and other items. Hammond and three other co-defendants went back to the same apartment building the next night, Dec. 3, to try to burglarize the apartment of the alleged drug dealer, but police interrupted and arrested them. “My only problem is the fairness in this case,” said Williams’ mother, Dana Williams. “How does one boy plan two robberies and three are left to hang for it?” Hammond’s case proceeded under a different judge, District Judge Kay Huff. Moody said Hammond pleaded to two counts for incidents on both nights, and she also said Hammond cooperated with authorities and agreed to testify if necessary in the Wichita men’s cases. Huff also ordered Hammond to serve two months in jail, a stricter penalty than what was negotiated in his plea agreement. “Without Mr. Hammond, (Tomlin, Williams and Tucker) would not have been identified and would not have been before this court,” Moody said. But Robinson said Lawrence police didn’t make the connection between the two cases until they reviewed Hammond’s phone records. Defense attorneys Thursday also argued it was unfair that their clients must register as violent offenders because a firearm was used in the robbery. Hammond won’t be required to. “Our criminal justice system believes in aiding and abetting,” Williams’ defense attorney Jason Billam said. “Our criminal justice system takes that into account.”

Martin said she didn’t disagree that Hammond’s deal was unfair but said prosecutors control how they charge cases. “(Hammond’s) not the person who holds a gun to the victims’ heads,” Martin also said. The judge also said there

were conflicting factors for both defendants, who mostly received the sentences they did based on their past criminal history. Tucker, who was the driver for the Dec. 2 robbery, never entered the apartment, but he was on probation at the time for two Sedgwick County burglary

convictions. Williams also had juvenile convictions for burglary. Tucker will get credit for the 10 months he has spent in jail awaiting resolution of the case, but he also will spend more time in prison than 130 months because his probation from the Sedgwick

County cases is expected to be revoked. Williams only spent a week in jail in this case before he posted bond, and he was taken into custody after Thursday’s hearing. Both Tucker and Williams apologized to the victims in court and said they regretted their decisions to come to

Lawrence that night. Tomlin did not show up in October for his sentencing and a warrant is out for his arrest, according to court records. — Reporter George Diepenbrock can be reached at 832-7144. Follow him at Twitter. com/gdiepenbrock.

Va. Tech gunman kills officer, then found dead By Eric Tucker and Zinie Chen Sampson Associated Press

BLACKSBURG, VA. — A gunman killed a police officer in a Virginia Tech parking lot Thursday and then apparently shot himself to death nearby in a baffling attack that shook up the campus nearly five years after it was the scene of the deadliest shooting rampage in modern U.S. history. The shooting took place on the same day Virginia Tech officials were in Washington, fighting a government fine over their alleged mishandling of the 2007 bloodbath where 33 people were killed. Before it became clear that the gunman in Thursday’s attack was dead, the school applied the lessons learned during the last tragedy, locking down the campus and using a high-tech alert system to warn students and faculty members to stay indoors. “In light of the turmoil and trauma and the tragedy suffered by this campus by guns, I can only say words don’t describe our feelings, and they’re elusive at this point in time,” university president Charles Steger said. “Our hearts are broken again for the family of our police officer.” The officer was killed after pulling a driver over in a traffic stop. The gunman — who was not involved in the traffic stop — walked into the parking lot and ambushed the officer. Police did not know what the motive was. The officer was identified as Deriek W. Crouse, a 39-year-old Army veteran and married father of five who joined the campus po-

A POLICE OFFICER SECURES THE SCENE where a gunman killed a police officer and another person after a traffic stop Thursday on the campus of Virginia Tech, in Blacksburg, Va. lice force about six months after the 2007 massacre, the school said. He previously worked at a jail and a sheriff’s department. While authorities wouldn’t reveal specific details about the gunman, they released a timeline of events. At about 12:15 p.m., the officer called in the traffic stop. After a few minutes passed without hearing from the officer, dispatch tried to get in touch with him but didn’t get a response. About 15 minutes later, police received the first call from a witness who said an officer had been shot at the Cassell Coliseum parking lot and the gunman had fled on foot. Local, state and federal officials responded immediately. At 1 p.m., an officer saw a suspicious man in a parking lot known as The Cage. The man had a gunshot wound, and a gun was nearby. Authorities said they responded to numerous other calls of suspicious activity but found no threats and lifted the campus lockdown, about four hours after the

Iran shows captured U.S. drone on TV By Kimberly Dozier and Lolita C. Baldor Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Tehran’s capture of a largely intact, top secret U.S. drone, which it displayed on state television, not only lays bare America’s surveillance program over Iran, but it also puts sensitive, advanced technology in hostile hands. A former U.S. official confirmed to The Associated Press that the beige-colored drone featured in the more than twominute video aired Thursday was indeed an RQ-170 Sentinel that is used for surveillance of Tehran’s nuclear facilities. The U.S. military said it lost control of a drone earlier this week. Iranian officials quickly claimed their military forces had downed the Sentinel with an electronic attack. But U.S. officials on Thursday flatly rejected the claim that any cyber or other electronic related activity was responsible for the loss of the drone. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because the drone mission is classified. The video, which showed Iranian officials examining the drone, provided the first real evidence of the Sentinel’s capture. More important, it revealed the aircraft to be nearly in one piece. That alone confirmed experts’ contention that the

classified aircraft can be programmed to land safely if its communications link is lost. Robotics expert Peter Singer, who has written about the use of drones in war, said the Sentinel is programmed to circle in the air or land if its communications link is lost. Until the video came out, U.S. officials and other experts were suggesting the drone may have crashed, leaving Iran with only scattered pieces. Pentagon officials on Thursday refused to comment on the drone, saying they do not talk about classified surveillance programs. The episode, however, could be a serious setback for what has been an escalating surveillance program, aimed largely at Iran’s nuclear facilities, that has gone on for years from a U.S. air base in Afghanistan and other bases in the region. It gives the Iranians the opportunity to share or sell the drone to others, such as the Chinese and Russians, who might be better able to exploit any technological information gleaned from examining it. U.S. officials are concerned that others may be able to reverse-engineer the chemical composition of the drone’s radar-deflecting paint or the aircraft’s sophisticated optics technology that allows operators to positively identify terror suspects from tens of thousands of feet in the air.

initial alerts. Asked if police were still looking for the shooter, state police Sgt. Robert Carpentieri said: “I think the investigators feel confident that we’ve located the person. I can’t give you specifics, and I don’t want to confirm that but you can kind of read between the lines so I won’t specifically address that question.” The officer had served four years on the campus police force, which has about 50 officers and 20 full- and parttime security guards. State police were still investigating whether the officer had been specifically targeted. Many students were preparing for exams when they were suddenly told to hunker down. Heavily armed officers swarmed the campus as caravans of SWAT vehicles and other police cars with emergency lights flashing patrolled nearby. “A lot of people, especially toward the beginning were scared,” said Jared Brumfield, a 19-year-old freshman from Culpeper, Va., who was

locked in the Squires Student Center. The university sent updates about every 30 minutes, regardless of whether they had any new information, school spokesman Mark Owczarski said. Harry White, 20, a junior physics major, said he was in line for a sandwich at a restaurant in a campus building when he received the text message alert. White said he didn’t panic, thinking instead about a false alarm about a possible gunman that locked down the campus in August. White used an indoor walkway to go to a computer lab in an adjacent building, where he checked news reports. “I decided to just check to see how serious it was. I saw it’s actually someone shooting someone, not something false, something that looks like a gun,” White said. The school was a bit quieter than usual because classes ended Wednesday. About 20,000 of the university’s 30,000 students were on campus when the officer was shot. Exams, set to begin Friday, were postponed. The shooting came soon after the conclusion of a hearing where Virginia Tech was appealing a $55,000 fine by the U.S. Education Department in connection with the university’s response to the 2007 rampage. The department said the school violated the law by waiting more than two hours after two students were shot to death in their dorm before sending an email warning. By then, student gunman SeungHui Cho was chaining the doors to a classroom building where he killed 30 more people and then himself.

Moderate voices still heard in Egypt


Academic nudge A new system to flag struggling students at Kansas University may be just the reminder some students need.


ometimes we all need a little nudge. That seems to be the philosophy behind a new initiative that seeks to improve student retention at Kansas University. Like so many initiatives these days, this one starts with a computer software program. However, at least one piece of human contact is built into the system designed to help students who may be struggling in one or more of their classes. The new software will allow faculty members to flag students they think may need some help. There’s no set criteria for flagging a student, but missed classes or assignments or failing a test might trigger such action. Once a student has been flagged, he or she will receive a call from someone in the KU student advising office who will offer to connect students to on-campus support services, such as tutoring or writing labs, that might help them get back on track. In many cases, the phone call may be all that’s necessary. There are certain to be some students who are simply annoyed by the call and adopt a “get off my back” stance. However, in many other cases, the advising center calls will be simply reinforcing something the students already know: They need to try a little harder, be a little more responsible. In some cases, they may even be grateful that someone noticed they were struggling and cared enough to try to help them. Of course, the ideal situation would be for this interaction to occur directly between student and teacher, preferably face to face, not through an email or text message. In larger classes, that sort of contact may not always be practical, and the new flagging system may fill an important gap. Many of the students in large lecture classes are in their first year at KU and are among the most vulnerable students when it comes to retention. KU’s retention rate for first-year students has been around 80 percent, which puts it in the bottom half of Big 12 universities. The flagging system has been employed at other universities, some of which also use it to congratulate students who are excelling in their class work — which is a nice touch. Officials at one of those schools, East Carolina University, also noted that followups with struggling students who received “nastygrams” found that the message had had a beneficial effect. Students who enroll at KU and drop out after a year or two are a drain on university resources — not to mention their own personal or family resources. Not every student who enrolls at KU is going to be an academic success, but university officials are right to focus on various new avenues to increase student retention and graduation rates.

YEARS — Vice presidents and secretaries of AGO the Old Santa Fe Trail association from IN 1911 various towns between Osage City and Lawrence, and county commissioners of Douglas and Shawnee counties, failed yesterday afternoon, after a session lasting four hours, to locate the Lawrence-Topeka branch of the Pan-America highway.... It took two hours to learn beyond doubt that the delegates could come to no agreement on the route. And it took nearly two hours more to frame a resolution that could get a passing vote, to throw the responsibility of the selection upon the commissioners of the counties through which the road will pass.” — Compiled by Sarah St. John

How worried should we be that Islamists won 70 percent of the seats in the first round of Egypt’s first free parliamentary elections? Especially since 20 percent of the seats went to puritanical Salafis who want to practice the faith as if they lived in Prophet Muhammed’s time? At stake is the fate of the most pivotal Arab state, a longtime U.S. ally with a rich history and culture, which signed the first Arab peace treaty with Israel. Egypt is a critical test case for whether democracy can flourish in Arab states or will lead inevitably to mullocracy. So of course we should be worried. But the Egyptian elections won’t end until March, and much can happen before then. So here’s the good news and the bad news about the elections,

Trudy Rubin

And Salafi gains have sent an urgent wake-up call to liberal and leftist parties, which appear to have won about 30 percent of the seats, that they must, belatedly, work closely together.” and some ideas on what might bring promising results. First the bad news: Yes, indeed, the strong showing by the Salafi Nour Party is disturbing. Salafis don’t speak with one voice, but some preach hatred of Christians on satellite channels allegedly funded by Saudis and Qataris, and some have attacked Christians and burned churches. Salafi clerics have called for banning interest-bearing loans, alcohol, and “fornication,” while limiting rights for women and Copts. They want to tighten the loose constitutional proviso that all laws be compliant with sharia, and have clerics certify that laws are sharia-compliant. And they want to censor culture: Prominent Salafi candidate Abdel Moneim al-Shahat denounced the works of Nobel laureate Naguib

Mahfouz as “atheist literature.” Last month, I interviewed the Nour party spokesman, Mohammed Nour (whose name is coincidental), at his public-relations firm in the upscale Cairo suburb of Mahdi. He wore a suit with a striped shirt, and his modern office sported black walls with orange couches and chrome armrests; a female office secretary wore a headscarf and long skirt, but her face was uncovered. Nour said his party was misunderstood, but his comments said otherwise. “We are always going to believe the Islamic system is better than democracy,” he said. Salafis reversed their previous objection to elections, he said, only because they saw that the ballot had become a vehicle for political change. But, he added: “You can’t have laws that conflict with sharia. The laws before the revolution were all corrupt laws.” The Nour party would rule out sales of alcohol, or the wearing of bikinis, thus crippling resorts that bring essential tourist revenues to Egypt. As for women’s rights, “we would not elect a woman. It is right not to vote for her.” Required by law to place women on their list, the Nour party put them at the very bottom and used flowers instead of photos of female candidates. Women could work, the party spokesman told me, “but only in specific positions, because of biology.” (The Salafi candidate for president, Hazem Saleh Abu

Ismail, says he would require all women to veil.) As for the treaty with Israel, Salafis want to see it put to a popular referendum, with the expectation that it would be rejected. So, the fact that Salafis won a critical bloc of parliamentary seats is sobering. And they will probably do at least as well in the next two rounds of voting, which will mostly take place in rural areas. However, here is some potentially “good” news: Of the 70 percent of seats won so far by Islamists, 50 percent belong to the far more moderate Freedom and Justice Party, the political arm of the Muslim Brotherhood. Far more cautious and more experienced than the brash, younger Salafis, the Brotherhood says it won’t further Islamicize the constitution. Moreover, the Brotherhood and the Salafis dislike each other intensely. The Nour party’s strong showing will probably encourage the Brotherhood to try to work closely with non-Islamists in parliament — to offset the Salafis. And Salafi gains have sent an urgent wake-up call to liberal and leftist parties, which appear to have won about 30 percent of the seats, that they must, belatedly, work closely together. (Ironically, the seculars may now find the Brotherhood has become a vital ally). A wake-up call has also been delivered to the Egyptian military. If it heeds it — and it’s not clear it

How do voters view affairs? We live in a bipolar culture. We allow ourselves to be drenched in sexual images in movies, on television and on the Internet and then defend First Amendment protection to even the most graphic of them. Then, when a politician acts out what culture promotes, we criticize him, especially if he’s conservative, branding him with the equivalent of a “scarlet letter.” In our not too distant past, a feeling of shame made people go into hiding after an adulterous relationship was exposed. Now they go on television to talk about the sleazy details. They either deny it (Herman Cain), admit it and say they’ve asked God for forgiveness (Newt Gingrich), or pay no political price at all (space limitations prevent me from listing the legion of politicians that fall into this last category.) Ginger White was on TV last week. She’s the Georgia woman who claims to have had a 13-year affair with Herman Cain. White says the alleged affair wasn’t “sex for cash.” Whew, let’s be grateful for some sense of morality, however thin. In a nation that channels Ado Annie’s lament from the musical “Oklahoma” (“I’m just a girl who cain’t say no”), saying no to anything, including adultery, gets you pegged as a fundamentalist who is attempting to impose his morality on others. How’s our failure to impose anything working out for us? If we maintain that adultery is wrong, shouldn’t we have an authority for that judgment? Who decides such things? So the wife (or husband) and kids get upset. Isn’t it all about one’s personal

choice and happiness? For politicians, it goes deeper. Here is the question I wanted to ask former Sen. Gary Hart after his alleged affair with Donna Rice nearly 25 years ago: “If we can’t trust you to keep a promise freely made to your wife before God and witnesses, what standard should we use to judge your truthfulness when you make promises to the American people?” It’s not a trick question, but one that goes to the core of an individual’s values and character. What is marriage? Is it something for the convenience of the U.S. Post Office for orderly mail delivery, or is there a Higher Authority behind it? For most people, marriage is a sacrament with “rules” firmly established by God and when followed these rules benefit married couples, their children and society. Among the main requirements of marriage is fidelity. “For-

saking all others” is the phrase contained in the Christian marriage vow. Divorce has become widely accepted (though not to the Author of marriage) as a sometimes “necessary evil,” but adultery remains for most people what it has always been: a betrayal. It’s not just a religious concept. Ask a person who is married but does not believe in God how he or she would feel about a cheating spouse and you most likely would get the same response you would receive from one who does believe in a higher power: anger and profound disappointment. In The Washington Post’s “Reliable Sources” column last week, Roxanne Roberts and Amy Argetsinger asked, “Is an affair still the kiss of death?” That they have to ask the question is another indicator of falling standards. Once, divorce was a political “kiss of death.” Now we are debating whether adultery should carry a similar penalty. One shudders to think what might be next. Ultimately, what voters must decide is this: Does a presidential candidate’s personal flaws rise (or fall) to a level that inhibits his ability to do the job of president? Put another way, if you are about to have surgery, do you care if the doctor is a cad, or do you care more whether most of his patients are alive and well? With the multiple challenges Americans face and with the choices presented to us, if the country is to be made well, voters may just have to sacrifice the ideal for the pragmatic. — Cal Thomas is a columnist for Tribune Media Services.

will — it will cease its crackdown on civil society, and start listening to the ideas of secular political leaders, such as Mohamed ElBaradei, on how to balance the Islamists by democratic means. The final piece of good news that militates against further Salafi gains is the moderate character of the Egyptian people. Unlike Shiite Iran, this Sunni country has no tradition of direct clerical involvement in politics, and has rejected radical Islam in the past. When I spoke to locals last month at an outdoor market in the working-class district of Imbaba, those who were planning to vote for Salafis ascribed their choice to the Salafi tradition of social work and the fact that Salafis had never before been involved in politics. Now that the Salafis have entered the arena, they will be judged by their performance. If they denounce tourism — a prime source of jobs — they will rapidly lose popularity. And if they call for radical changes in society, they will also lose their shine. Indeed, in Alexandria, the infamous Abdel Moneim al-Shahat — the Nour party candidate who called democracy a heresy and denounced Nobel laureate Mahfouz — was defeated in Sunday’s runoff election. It’s too soon to say whether this is a trend, but let us hope so. That would be the best good news of all. — Trudy Rubin is a columnist and editorial board member for the Philadelphia Inquirer.


Editor, advocate To the editor: On Dec. 1, when I picked up my paper, I fully expected to have to wring the water out of it. The paper stated that coach Leach had decided to coach at Washington instead of Kansas and I fully expected our sports editor, Tom Keegan, to be crying tears as big as light bulbs and flooding the sports section of the Journal-World. After at least four or five days of nothing but a promotion for coach Leach to come to Kansas, some of us wondered if Keegan was an employee of Kansas University or at least a member of the committee to locate the next KU football coach. He was so insistent that Leach was the best and only fit for KU’s next coach that I wonder what his qualifications are. I suppose it’s possible that part of his job as sports editor is to help hire a new coach. I’m sure his comments over the past football season helped get Turner Gill fired. I’m one that feels that coach Gill was not given a fair chance to develop a winning team. I remember Lou Holtz saying it takes at least five years. Howard Lynch, Lawrence

NEW KANSAS UNIVERSITY FOOTBALL COACH CHARLIE WEIS brings an impressive résumé to Lawrence. Included among his previous jobs: offensive coordinator with the Kansas City Chiefs (with QB Tyler Palko in top-left photo); offensive coordinator at Florida (top right); head coach at Notre Dame (right, in center photo, with LSU’s Les Miles); and OC with the New England Patriots (at right in bottom photo, with QB Tom Brady).

Some might ask why Charlie Weis, a coach with a national profile, accepted an offer to coach football at Kansas University. That’s an easy one to answer. He failed at Notre Dame and has too much pride to let that be his lasting legacy as a head coach. The tougher questions will be sent Sheahon Zenger’s way today at a 5 p.m. news conference in the football complex, starting with “Why Charlie Weis?” Zenger has to do better than the first quote he gave. “This puts Kansas on the national map,” Zenger told’s Joe Schad, choosing to speak first to the national media. Excuse me, but didn’t Mark Mangino and his staff already do that by coaching up a group of largely two-star recruits so well that the Jayhawks were ranked No. 2 in the nation with an 11-0 record before losing to Missouri and then going on to win the Orange Bowl? That team finished 12-1, ranked No. 7 and very much on the national map. The other troubling thing about that quote — and the first quote generally is the most honest one because it hasn’t been rehearsed — is that it smacks of an athletic director more concerned with winning the news conference than building a winner on the field. Weis certainly was the big-

Tom Keegan

gest name Kansas could have landed. Zenger made a splash heard ’round the football world by hiring a man who has had success developing quarterbacks as talented as Tom Brady, at New England, and Jimmy Clausen at Notre Dame, and as unspectacular as Matt Cassel of the Kansas City Chiefs. The responsibilities of a college head coach differ so greatly from those of an NFL offensive coordinator. A college head coach must assemble a staff of assistants who blend the right qualities necessary to evaluate talent, develop recruiting contacts and instruct the recruits who commit. At Notre Dame, Weis got off to such a great start on the field and in the recruiting rankings that the school felt compelled to sign him to a 10-year contract extension in the middle of his second year. Weis went 19-6 in his first two seasons, and the Fighting Irish faithful were convinced even better Please see KEEGAN, page 3B

Mays makes most of start, sparks KU women past UW By Jesse Newell

Keena Mays admits she still needs to work on her poker face. During Thursday’s shootaround, Mays, Kansas University’s sophomore guard, let out a quick smile when she was told that she would be starting her first game of the season.

“I was happy, but I couldn’t express how happy I was,” Mays said. “I just had to come out and play like I know how.” The 5-foot-7 Mays was impressive in her new role, scoring a team-high 17 points to lead the Kansas women’s basketball team to a 73-44 rout over Wisconsin at Allen Fieldhouse. Mays, who scored a career-

high 21 points in KU’s previous game against Alabama, said that “a little birdie” gave her a headsup that she might be entering the starting lineup. That birdie was actually one of the assistant coaches, who told Mays she had the opportunity to start if she continued to practice well. “That’s what I wanted from

the beginning,” Mays said of starting. “I just proved that I can be the player (coach Bonnie Henrickson) needs me to be.” Mays found first-half success by shooting jumpers over a sagging Wisconsin defense. She made five of seven shots and two of three three-pointers for 14 points before the break. The Arlington, Texas, native

finished 6-for-11 from the floor with four rebounds, one assist and no turnovers. “She’s produced,” Henrickson said of Mays. “She’s practiced well. She’s been who I thought all along she can be.” Much of KU’s effectiveness offensively could be attributed Please see KU WOMEN, page 3B Mays

Pujols, Angels agree on 10-year deal By Mike DiGiovanna Los Angeles Times

DALLAS â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Los Angeles Angels made perhaps the biggest one-day free-agent splash in baseball history and transformed themselves into legitimate World Series contenders Thursday, spending about $331 million to acquire the gameâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most feared slugger and one of its top pitchers. Within a span of two frenzied early-morning hours at the winter meetings, the Angels reached agreements in principle with first baseman Albert Pujols on a 10year, $254 million deal and lefthander C.J. Wilson on a five-year, $77.5 million deal. Bridesmaids in recent freeagent pursuits â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the Angels failed in bids to sign Mark Teixeira, Carl Crawford and Adrian Beltre the last two winters â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the Angels nabbed the two stars with

a massive investment that was $144 million more than the $183 million Arte Moreno paid to buy the team in 2003. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say Pujols in my wildest dreams I thought Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be sitting here today,â&#x20AC;? Angels general manager Jerry Dipoto, less than two months into the job, said at a news conference to announce the moves. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a tribute to the aggressive nature and quality of our ownership. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Arte Moreno is as competitive an owner as there is in the game. We all know this ... is kicked into gear by him. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s made it very clear he wants to win championships, he wants to win rings, and we think this is a way to move toward that goal.â&#x20AC;?

Pujols will be introduced at a news conference at Angel Stadium on Saturday, and Wilson on Tuesday. Wilson, the former Texas Rangers ace who grew up in Orange County, Calif., has been a top target of the Angels since mid-November, and the Angels emerged as a front-runner for the 31-year-old left-hander entering the week. Wilson, who helped Texas reach the World Series in each of the last two seasons, turned down a reported six-year, $99 million offer from the Miami Marlins to sign with his hometown team. But Dipoto said he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t â&#x20AC;&#x153;ramp upâ&#x20AC;? his pursuit of Pujols until arriving in Dallas for the winter meetings Sunday night. Pujols had lucrative offers from St. Louis and Miami, but Dipoto and his staff worked virtually around the clock over the last

PITTSBURGH (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Ben Roethlisberger needed only one good leg for the Pittsburgh Steelers to continue their mastery of the Cleveland Browns. The Pittsburgh quarterback played through a painful high-ankle sprain in the second half to pass for 280 yards and two touchdowns, the last a 79-yard scoring strike to Antonio Brown with 2:52 remaining to help the Steelers win for the eighth time in their last nine games, 14-3. Roethlisberger went to the locker room for X-rays following a gruesome second-quarter sack but returned to start the second half, passing for 178 yards after the break. Pittsburgh (10-3) moved a half-game ahead of Baltimore in the race for the AFC North title. Colt McCoy passed for 209 yards but also threw two interceptions for the Browns (4-9), who lost for the 15th time in their last 16 meetings with the Steelers. McCoy left briefly in the fourth quarter after taking a crashing helmet-to-helmet hit from Pittsburgh linebacker James Harrison.

Maybe it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be noticed right away, but Stern said the â&#x20AC;&#x153;tortured journeyâ&#x20AC;? of this 161-day lockout would prove to be worth it. Stern announced that owners and players ratified a new collective bargaining agreement Thursday, the final step to ending the five-month lockout and paving the way for training camps and free agency to open today. Together with an expanded revenue-sharing program, Stern said teams and fans would see an improved league in coming years. The 10-year deal promises owners savings of perhaps a quarter billion dollars a year but largely leaves intact the soft salary cap system that the players fought hard to maintain. Training camps will open at 1 p.m. today, with the salary cap staying at $58 million.

OSU’s Sullinger probable for Kansas By Gary Bedore

Nothing’s official yet, but it sure sounds as if Jared Sullinger will be healthy enough to play in Saturday’s Ohio State-Kansas University basketball game in Allen Fieldhouse. “He just told me he feels great,” Ohio State coach Thad Matta said Thursday afternoon, referring to the 6-foot-9, 265-pound sophomore All-America candidate out of Columbus, Ohio, who has been limited at practice this week because of back spasms. “He said he woke up dancing this morning, but I don’t know what that entails.” Sullinger missed Saturday’s 64-35 home rout of Texas Pan American.


“It’ll probably be Saturday,” Matta said, asked when he’ll know whether Sullinger will be able to answer the call in the 2:15 p.m. tipoff. “I’ll be perfectly honest with you: Saturday is not the most important thing in my mind for him. We definitely want him to play. I think he’s the best player in college basketball, but I want to make sure what we do is right by him as well.” KU coach Bill Self is counting on Sullinger being able to participate in the battle between the country’s No. 2- (OSU) and 13-ranked (KU) teams. “If I was a betting man, I’d say Thad is probably not a very good poker player, because I think that he’ll probably play,” Self said. “I hope

he does play. He’s one of the better players that’s played in our building in recent memory. “One of the draws of playing Ohio State and a great team is getting a chance to play against great players. Our guys like that. It’s an unbelievable game where you have two terrific teams and sets of players going after each other.” KU junior Thomas Robinson, who averages 17.4 points and 12.0 rebounds for KU (62), hopes Sullinger (19.1 ppg, 10.3 rpg) takes the court for the Buckeyes (8-0). “I mean, (it’s) competition. At the same time, it’s a health decision, but if it was my pick, I’d definitely have him in the game,” Robinson said. Robinson and Sullinger

attended the Amare Stoudemire, LeBron James and adidas Nations camps last summer. “He’s fun to play against. He’s a smart player, very good player. We definitely had a good time,” Robinson said. One of Sullinger’s teammates is convinced the big man will be in the lineup Saturday. “Jared looks kind of tough, but he’s a big teddy bear,” point guard Aaron Craft said. “He was walking around really gingerly about four or five days ago, but now he’s looking a lot better. Now he’s got the bounce back in his step.” Self said KU senior guard Tyshawn Taylor would return to the starting lineup. Taylor “tweaked “ his knee at

practice Monday, yet played 34 minutes in Tuesday’s 8880 victory over Long Beach State.

was set to expire, Weis received a termination payment of $6.6 million. He is expected to continue receiving compensation from the school through the 2015 season. Weis and his wife, Maura, have two children, Charlie Jr., and Hannah. Hannah, who turned 16 earlier this year, is afflicted with a rare seizure disorder that has affected her development. She’ll have special needs for life. Weis and his wife started a non-profit organization called Hannah and Friends, designed to help children and adults with special needs. Weis is not without his own physical ailments. During the past few years, he tore ligaments in his left knee and broke his right knee when he was taken out on the sideline during a Notre Dame game in 2008. He had his right knee replaced after the 2008 season. Weis’ arrival at KU has fans and alumni buzzing over the potential of this long-dormant football program that constantly operates in the shadows of the ultra-success-

Kansas City and helped lead the Chiefs to the AFC West Division title and a playoff appearance. He left Kansas City to become the offensive coordinator at the University of Florida, citing a desire to spend more time with his family. His son, Charlie Jr., enrolled at UF and began a job with the football program to learn the ins and outs of the profession. One thing he learned from his dad’s latest move is that the draw of the head coach’s clipboard can be powerful. Florida head coach Will Muschamp, who guided the Gators to a 6-6 record during his first season after serving as a Mack Brown assistant for three years at Texas, told the Associated Press on Thursday he often sensed Weis wanted another opportunity to lead his own program. “There aren’t many opportunities you get to be a head coach,” Muschamp said. “I know Charlie. The last one didn’t end the way he wanted it to.” Muschamp said he and

Weis discussed the Kansas opportunity during the past few days “I asked him, ‘Is this something you’re really interested in doing?’” Muschamp told the AP. “He said, ‘Yeah, I want to talk to ’em. If I wasn’t interested, I would not talk.’ So I said, ‘I support you 100 percent if that’s what you

want to do. I think that’s great.’ Now, when guys make parallel moves, I don’t necessarily agree with that. When guys can further their career, I think it’s great.” Though rumors of Weis as a candidate for the Kansas job popped up Wednesday, many people still viewed it as a long shot. Since 1990, KU has recorded just seven winning seasons, and Mangino’s 50-48 record from 2002-09 made him the first KU coach to finish his career above .500 since Jack Mitchell went 4442-5 from 1958-66. Asked how he was able to attract a coach with Weis’ credentials to a program like Kansas, Zenger referred to the concept that kicked the search off in the first place: Weis and Kansas simply seemed to be the right fit for each other. “It was mutual,” Zenger said. “For him and for us, the stars aligned.” Details of Weis’ contract with KU were not available Thursday night. After being fired by Notre Dame, six years before his extended contract

In Cassel’s other two was fired after a 6-6 season. seasons with Kansas City,

Cassel has combined for 26 touchdowns and 25 picks, irrefutable evidence that Weis knows how to bring out the best in quarterbacks. That stat should help Dayne Crist, a quarterback recruited to Notre Dame by Weis, realize that transferring to Kansas means he’ll play for a guy who will make him better. Crist started as a sophomore at ND, but was beat out as a junior and announced he will transfer. He will graduate this month and because of that won’t have to sit out a year at his new school. The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, however, reported he is considering transferring to Wisconsin. Weis comes to Kansas from Florida, where he was former Texas defensive coordinator Will Muschamp’s offensive coordinator.

In Weis’ one season as offensive coordinator, the Gators ranked 72nd among 120 FBS schools with 25.6 points per game and 102nd with 334.2 yards per game. If Zenger didn’t make this hire to attract national media attention, maybe he has another major move coming. Could it be Zenger will entice his former boss, ex-South Florida coach Jim Leavitt, to leave the San Francisco 49ers after their season ends to come to KU as defensive coordinator? Such a move would allow Leavitt to rehab an image that was tainted when he allegedly struck a player and then was involved in an apparent cover-up. Leavitt shows he’s not that guy by behaving at Kansas and then takes over when Weis retires?


being a Western Kansas guy, I totally back him on everything he does. I think coach Weis’ credentials are tremendous, and I’m really excited to see what he’s going to do here at the University of Kansas.” Although his days in the NFL — which included one season as the Kansas City Chiefs’ offensive coordinator in 2010 — are what Weis is best known for, his five-year stint as a college head coach was not without its own accolades. While leading Notre Dame to a 35-27 record in five seasons from 2005-09, Weis twice led the Irish to BCS bowl appearances and earned the Eddie Robinson Coach of the Year award in 2005 after a 9-3 season. After being fired by Notre Dame following a disappointing 6-6 season in 2009, Weis joined Todd Haley’s staff in

OUT OF A SCRAMBLE FOR POSSESSION, KANSAS’ AISHAH SUTHERLAND (11) comes up with the ball and a shot at the basket. Sutherland had a double-double — 16 points, 12 rebounds — in KU’s 73-44 victory over Wisconsin on Thursday at Allen Fieldhouse.


to ball security. The Jayhawks turned it over just six times, which tied for the second-fewest turnovers in school history. The Jayhawks’ previous low for turnovers this season was 16 against Alabama. KU entered the game averaging 21 giveaways per game.

“I think (it was) just focusing and not rushing things like we have in the past,” Mays said. “Just hitting (shots) when they were there.” KU senior forward Aishah Sutherland posted a doubledouble with 12 points and a career-high 16 rebounds. That included a 10-point, 10-rebound effort in the second half. Wisconsin (4-6) was led by Morgan Paige’s 14 points. KU (8-1) will play host to UMKC on Dec. 17.

Lions win tourney debut ————

LHS pulls away from Sumner, 59-47 By Benton Smith

STILWELL — After backto-back years of first-round losses at the Blue Valley Shootout, Lawrence High’s boys basketball team was elated to get to the winner’s bracket with a 59-47 victory over Kansas City (Kan.) Sumner Academy on Thursday night. Lions coach Mike Lewis said his team was tired of reading its name on the left side of the bracket, where the consolation games are listed. “We were due to maybe move to the right side,” Lewis said with a chuckle. LHS (2-0) made it there with a fantastic start to the second half. Sumner trailed, 19-17, at the break before Lawrence started rolling in the third. The Lions came out of the locker room with a designed lob play, executed crisply with a pass from Logan Henrichs to KJ Pritchard, and after Sumner scored a couple of buckets of its own, LHS went on a 13-2 run. A drive and lay-in by Anthony Buffalomeat gave Lawrence a three-point lead to get it started. Next came two free throws from Buffalomeat, a Pritchard three-pointer, a transition bucket from Jake Mosiman, a Henrichs layup and two more points in the paint from Bryce Montes de Oca. Lewis said the team’s defense gave the Lions a thirdquarter edge. “We just thought if we came out and really zeroed in defensively, it would create some offensive looks for us,” he said. A senior guard, Henrichs said limiting the Sabres to 17 first-half points really fired up the Lions for the second half.

LAWRENCE HIGH’S KJ PRITCHARD (14) SWATS A SHOT by Kansas City Sumner’s Benny Parker (11). LHS won its Blue Valley Shootout opener, 59-47, on Thursday in Stilwell. “We just had the mentality we wouldn’t lose the game,” he said. “Everything we could possibly do, I felt like we tried to do — rebounds, steals, finishing, fouls, anything like that.” Henrichs demonstrated that more than anyone in the second half. After going scoreless in the first 16 minutes, the do-it-all senior finished with eight points, 10 boards and 10 assists, including a perfect pass to Montes de Oca on a two-on-one fast break in the fourth quarter that set up a one-handed slam for the big man. A sophomore center, Montes de Oca finished with 10 points and eight boards, matching the rebound total of Buffalomeat, who scored eight points. Pritchard led Lawrence with 22 points, going 8-for-15 from the floor with a pair of three-pointers. Lewis was pleased with the overall team effort. “Our guys were just aggressive and made some plays,” the coach said. Because they did, tonight

they can play in prime time in the semifinals, where they felt they deserved to be. Said Henrichs: “It feels good to be on this side of the bracket.” The Lions at 8:30 tonight will face host Blue Valley, which defeated Ralston, Neb., 50-43, Thursday night. In other first-round games at the shootout, Lee’s Summit (Mo.) defeated Olathe North, 66-61, and Olathe Northwest hammered Oak Park (Mo.), 61-40.

Mother-in-law not supporting adoptive parents your daughter’s life. We hope it helps. Dear Annie: What do we do when Granny is too old to keep driving, but won’t stop? Any mention of her not getting behind the wheel is met with screaming rage. Even though Grandma has had many near accidents, she feels she is still a competent driver and the other motorists are to blame. My whole family is afraid to ride with her. How do we get her to give up her driver’s license my husband feel guilty when after almost 40 years on the we don’t make it down for road? — Road Worrier occasions that are important Dear Worried: Suggest that to them. I can’t stop feeling that my mother-in-law doesn’t accept me. Should I tell her how hurt I am or let it go? — Disappointed Daughter-in-Law Dear Disappointed: We don’t know if Mom doesn’t accept you, if she has difficulty traveling or if she is simply socially ignorant. But you can’t fix what you don’t address. After nine years of marriage, it’s time to have a heart-to-heart with Mom, in person, with your husband and your father-in-law present. Do it in as loving a manner as you can manage. Don’t bring up past hurts — that will put her on the defensive. Simply say how important she is to you and how much you want her to be part of

History goes in search of ‘Invention USA’ Necessity may be the mother of invention, but imitation is the mother of most television. “Invention USA” (9 p.m. and 9:30 p.m., History) is not the first series to evaluate wacky gadgets and their eccentric inventors, but it’s the first one hosted by Garrett Lisi and Reichart Von Wolfsheild. And how can you not invest a certain amount of authority and mad scientist credibility in a guy named Reichart Von Wolfsheild? If it weren’t his real name, I would have sworn it was something out of a Mel Brooks movie. Mr. Lisi and Herr Von Wolfsheild invite would-be entrepreneurs to their offices (no, make that their secret lair!) in Los Angeles, where they will put each prototype to the test (in a laboratory, no doubt!) to see which product is worthy of being brought to market. Breakthrough inventions are all very nice, but this is television — reality television — and that genre is all about casting. So look for inventors just this side of barking mad. One would-be Edison proposes “The Fireball,” a nonlethal weapon that uses modified paintballs to prevent wild animal attacks. Everybody needs one of those! It is said to have been inspired by a run-in with Bigfoot. Now that inventor sure knows how to get on the History Channel! Other must-haves include cellphones built into winter gloves and something to chase away pigeons. Co-host Garrett Lisi has written on particle physics, and Reichart Von Wolfsheild has more than just a memorable name to his credit. He has produced more than 120 consumer products, from multiplayer video games to software used by Disney’s animation division.

CBS shuffles its schedule to air four holiday favorites: “Frosty the Snowman” (7 p.m.), featuring the voice of Jimmy Durante; the John Goodman-voiced “Frosty Returns” (7:30 p.m.); “Yes, Virginia” (8 p.m.), with the voices of Neil Patrick Harris, Jennifer Love Hewitt and Alfred Molina; and a repeat of the 2011 cartoon “The Elf on the Shelf: An Elf’s Story” (8:30 p.m.).

Tonight’s other highlights

A computer virus defies solution on “Chuck” (7 p.m., NBC).

A glance back at past renovations on “Kitchen Nightmares” (7 p.m., Fox).

On any given evening, there’s at least a 50/50 chance of catching the 2003 travel/ home improvement/romance/spurnedwoman-gets-her-groove-back fantasy “Under the Tuscan Sun” (7 p.m., Oxygen).

A less-than-enchanted arson case on “Grimm” (8 p.m., NBC).

A serial killer inspires teamwork on “Fringe” (8 p.m., Fox).

A newly repaired wash plant hits pay dirt on “Gold Rush” (8 p.m., Discovery).

Jimmy ascends as Freddie’s star fades in the ultra- violent British import “The Take” (8 p.m., Encore).

A lone driver (Mel Gibson) battles barbarian highway hordes in the 1981 thriller “The Road Warrior” (8 p.m., BBC America). When first released in the U.S., Gibson’s accented voice was dubbed.

The new mayor’s biggest supporter is found dead on “Blue Bloods” (9 p.m., CBS).

As the race tightens, Kane leans on the machine on “Boss” (9 p.m., Starz).

Grandma enroll in the AARP Driver Safety Course (aarp. org) as a way to brush up on her skills. Also check into alternative means of transportation, including local senior transportation, willing family members, etc. If she still won’t give up her license and you believe she is a danger on the road, enlist the help of her doctor, the DMV and, if necessary, the police.

JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS For Friday, Dec. 9: This year tension builds and you often feel overwhelmed. Perhaps you need to streamline your activities.

Dear Annie: I have been married to my husband for more than nine years and still have a problem with my mother-in-law. When I had a bridal shower, Mom didn’t reply, didn’t show up and never sent a card. This made me feel unwelcome. (She still has a picture of my husband and his ex-girlfriend on her wall.) I told my husband that when we have a baby shower, I really want his mother to attend. After years of struggling with infertility, we received wonderful news. We are adopting a baby girl. My aunt offered to give me a baby shower, and I waited until the judge’s final decision before I said yes. My husband told his mother how important it was that she be there, and that not showing up would be hurtful to me. Due to circumstances beyond our control, our adoption case is hung up in the courts. We had the shower anyway, but my mother-inlaw didn’t attend, saying we don’t actually have a baby yet. She said she’d visit after we get her. Again, she didn’t even send a card. Annie, it’s not about a gift. It’s about caring enough to be there. My in-laws only visit once a year, but they expect us to make numerous trips to their home and often make
