Gov. Sam Brownback on Tuesday said he would push to reduce the state personal income tax rate and overhaul the school finance system. Speaking to reporters and editors at the Lawrence Journal-World, Brownback said growing the state economy was his primary goal as he prepares for his second legislative session as governor. The 2012 session starts Jan. 9. The state needed to be ready for The govera “federal storm” of nor said he b u d g e t planned to cuts from revisit his Washingveto of state ton, said funding of the B r o w n back, a forKansas Arts mer U.S. Commission. s e n a t o r . Whoever the next president is, he said, “is going to cut.” Brownback, a Republican, said he wanted to lower the state’s individual income tax rate to make it the second lowest in the region, behind Colorado. Kansas now has the second highest personal income tax rate in relation to neighboring states. He predicted the lowered tax rates would spur economic growth, which then should be plowed back into more tax cuts. At this point, he said, he would not propose lowering the state corporate income tax. Brownback also reiterated his desire to revamp the school finance formula, saying the current funding system was under constant legal challenge. General concepts of his plan include allowing more Mike Yoder/Journal-World Photo local property tax funding KANSAS GOV.

One of the city’s larger recycling centers is in jeopardy of being shut down by City Hall. Lawrence city commissioners at their Tuesday evening meeting primarily sided with a group of east Lawrence residents who said the 12th and Haskell Recycling Center is operating in violation of city zoning laws and has become a neighborhood nuisance. “Who wants to live next to a dump?” asked Byron Wiley, who lives near the recycling business that takes everything from paper to junk cars. “We have a right to enjoy our property both inside and outside, and that is not happening now.” Please see RECYCLING, page 6A

City interested in switching to vehicles that run on natural gas By Chad Lawhorn clawhorn@ljworld.com

City leaders on Tuesday were told that there is a big difference between gasoline and gas these days. At a luncheon hosted by Black Hills Energy, the city’s natural gas utility, city commissioners were told that compressed natural gas currently is selling for about 40 percent less than a gallon of gasoline or diesel fuel. “There is a high level of interest in compressed natural gas right now from cities and other operators of vehicle fleets,” said Tim Hess, manager of Black Hills’ gas marketing program. Count Lawrence City Hall among those interested. The city already has confirmed that it plans to convert one standard pickup in its Public Works Department to a natural gas vehicle in 2012 to test the technology. But on Tuesday, City Commissioner Bob Schumm said he wanted the city to be open to an even larger test of the alternative fuel source. Schumm said the city should have serious discussions with the city of Kansas City, Mo., which has more than 200 compressed-natural-gas vehicles in its fleet. Please see GAS, page 6A

Thin line can separate coaching and bullying in schools By Mark Fagan mfagan@ljworld.com

For three weeks, a Tonganoxie High School football player had been delivering unwarranted hits at practice — too much, too often and, one day in particular, too unexpected. After a quarterback protected by a green jersey had been flattened by yet another improper tackle, coach Mark Elston pulled the defender up off a pile of others around the QB and started Special to the Journal-World screaming.

KBA to consider investment in medical device company By Andy Hyland ahyland@ljworld.com

A Kansas Bioscience Authority committee recommended on Tuesday that a $600,000 investment in a Lenexa medical device company be considered by the authority’s full board. The committee discussed investing $600,000 with Spinal Simplicity, LLC, of Lenexa. Founded by a physician and an entrepreneur, the company has developed a medical device for spinal fusion as an alternative to open spinal surgery, according to UBLE R its website.

which is the commercialization arm of the KBA, worked most closely with the applicant. He said that while the investment committee typically makes a recommendation of approval on matters submitted to the board, in this case committee members wanted to solicit more opinions from board members before making a decision. Dan Watkins, KBA board chairman, is on the investment committee and was not able to attend the committee meeting, Harrington said. The committee decided to seek input from him, as well as other members of the board before making a recommendation. — Higher education reporter Andy Hyland can be reached at 832-6388.

disparity between rich and poor districts. But he backed off a key part of his proposal, saying he would not recommend allowing counties to raise sales taxes for schools. He said a lot of opposition had arisen to that idea. Details of his school funding method are scheduled to be released today. On other issues, Brownback:

 Said the budget proposal he will send to legislators would recommend resumption of state funding of the Lawrence office of the Kansas Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services. The city and county picked up the lease costs of the local SRS office after Brownback and SRS Secretary Robert Siedlecki Jr. proposed closing nine offices, including the one in Lawrence. That closure proposal prompted a public outcry from local officials who said closing the Lawrence office would have created havoc in the community and disrupted services to thousands of needy people. Later, Siedlecki agreed to a plan for city of Lawrence and Douglas County taxpayers to pay the rent for the SRS building, saying he would pursue legislative approval to fund the office in future years. Asked if he would have done anything differently during the controversy, Brownback said he probably should have asked for advice from former Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, a Democrat. Brownback said Sebelius closed numerous SRS offices without any controversy.

 Called for construction of the controversial, $150 million South Lawrence Trafficway. “This one has got to get done. It is going to get done,” he said.

 Said he planned to revisit his veto of state funding of the Kansas Arts Commission but refused to elaborate. Brownback’s veto of funds made Kansas the only state to not fund the arts and cost Kansas $1.2 million in federal matching dollars.

 Voiced support for a study commission’s recommendation to replace the state’s traditional pension plan for a 401(k)-like plan for public employees hired after July 1, 2013.

 Continued his support of Texas Gov. Rick Perry for the Republican nomination for president. “He has a great track record,” Brownback said. He said Republican voters have become more conservative and they are “anxious to scared” about the future of the country. — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

BRIEFLY Fire that displaced family ruled accidental A fire at a west Lawrence home Monday night has displaced a family of four and caused an estimated $80,000 in damage to the house, a Lawrence-Douglas County Fire Medical spokeswoman said. Division Chief Eve Tolefree said Tuesday investigators determined the fire at 3404 Oxford Court was an accident caused by combustible materials being too close to a water heater. The fire was reported about 6 p.m. Monday at the residence near Bob Billings Parkway and Kasold Drive. Jane Blocher, executive director of the Douglas County chapter of the American Red Cross, said the agency provided hotel lodging and financial assistance for food, clothing and other emergency needs to the parents and their two daughters. The family’s cat also escaped the blaze, Blocher said. The family does have insurance, Blocher said, and are expected to be displaced from the house for quite some time. “There is extensive damage in both levels of the house,” Blocher said. According to Douglas County records, the home’s appraised value is $149,200.

Tax cut bill pushed through House Defiant Republicans pushed legislation through the House Tuesday night that would keep alive Social Security payroll tax cuts for some 160 million Americans at President Barack Obama’s request — but also would require construction of a Canada-to-Texas oil pipeline that has sparked a White House veto threat. Passage, on a largely party-line vote of 234-193, sent the measure toward its certain demise in the Democratic-controlled Senate, triggering the final partisan showdown of a remarkably quarrelsome year of divided government. The legislation “extends the payroll tax relief, extends and reforms unemployment insurance and protects Social Security — without job-killing tax hikes,” Republican House Speaker John Boehner declared after the measure had cleared. Referring to the controversy over the Keystone XL pipeline, he added, “Our bill includes sensible, bipartisan measures to help the private sector create jobs.” On a long day of finger pointing, however, House Democrats accused Republicans of protecting “millionaires and billionaires, “ and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., derided the GOP-backed pipeline provision as “ideological candy” for the tea party-set.

Attack leaves 5 dead, 122 wounded Summoned for questioning by Belgian police, a man with a history of weapons and drug offenses left home armed with hand grenades, a revolver and an assault rifle. Stopping at a central square filled with holiday shoppers, he lobbed three grenades into the crowd, then opened fire. Four people were killed, including an 18-monthold toddler, and 122 were wounded in the assault Tuesday that brought tragedy to the pre-Christmas season. Authorities said the shooter also died, but they were at a loss to explain the reason for the onslaught. The prime minister said it was not related to terrorism. The midday attack in the eastern Belgian city of Liege sent hundreds of panicked shoppers stampeding down the cobbled streets of the old city, fleeing explosions and bullets. Belgian authorities identified the shooter as Nordine Amrani, a 33-year-old Liege resident who had done jail time for offenses involving guns and drugs, and had been called in for questioning Tuesday in a sexual abuse case. 3 | PENNSYLVANIA

Sandusky waives preliminary hearing Former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky stunned a packed courtroom and backed out of a preliminary hearing at the last minute Tuesday, avoiding a face-to-face confrontation with accusers who his lawyer said were just trying to cash in by making up stories of child sex abuse. Sandusky pleaded not guilty and vowed afterward to “stay the course, to fight for four quarters.” His lawyer, Joe Amendola, then took the defense to the courthouse steps and spoke before dozens of news cameras for an hour, saying some of the 10 men who accuse Sandusky of molesting them as children were only out to profit from civil lawsuits against the coach and Penn State. A prosecutor said about 11 witnesses, most of them alleged victims, were ready to testify at the hearing. 4 | NEW YORK CITY

Trump backs out of hosting debate Donald Trump says he is pulling out of a Republican presidential debate he had agreed to moderate in Iowa. The real estate mogul announced Tuesday that he was stepping back in order to preserve the option of running for president in case he’s not satisfied that the eventual Republican nominee can defeat President Barack Obama. The conservative website Newsmax was to host the debate Dec. 27. But the debate has been in jeopardy ever since Mitt Romney signaled he would not participate. Other candidates bowed out. Only Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum agreed to take part. Many Republican strategists warned that a presidential debate moderated by Trump, star of “Celebrity Apprentice,” would create a circus-like atmosphere that might diminish the candidates vying to challenge Obama.

State leaders to consider settlement in Kline case By John Hanna Associated Press

TOPEKA — Gov. Sam Brownback and Kansas legislative leaders expect to consider a proposed settlement today of a lawsuit against former Attorney General Phill Kline that was filed by a woman who claimed he fired her from a county prosecutor’s office for complaining about sex discrimination. The governor and the Legislature’s eight top leaders were set to meet as the State Finance Council, which must Kline approve settlements of lawsuits against state employees. The claims against Kline arise from his actions as Johnson County district attorney in 2007, but he still was considered a state official. The Finance Council’s agenda said it

would consider a request from current Attorney General Derek Schmidt for approval of a settlement in the case but provided no further details. Schmidt’s office declined to comment Tuesday. Reid Holbrook, an attorney for Kline, and Joe Colantuono, an attorney representing Kline’s accuser, Jacqie Spradling, declined to discuss details of the proposed settlement, citing confidentiality requirements. But Holbrook said the settlement would end not only the lawsuit but also a separate claim before a federal administrative judge in Washington. “A meeting of the minds has been reached,” he said. The lawsuit against Kline had been scheduled to go to trial in October in Johnson County District Court, but the presiding judge delayed the trial until January so that attorneys could finish working on a settlement. The federal claim also has been on hold.

Student killed in accident A 19-year-old Kansas University student from Changsha, China, died in a Leavenworth County car accident on Monday afternoon, according to a statement from the university. Yujie He was in her third semester at KU and was enrolled at the university’s Applied English Center.

According to the LeavenKANSAS worth County sheriff’s office, UNIVERSITY the woman was heading north on County Road 1 in a Volkswagen Beetle when she went to turn around at Hemphill Road and head back south on CR 1. A man driving a Dodge truck was headed south on the county road when his vehicle struck the passenger side of the Beetle. The vehicles came to rest southwest of the intersection. Leavenworth County sheriff’s officers identified the other driver as 45-year-old Rob Linsin, of Prairie Village, who was taken by air ambulance to KU Hospital, where a spokesman said he was listed in serious condition.

Bullying CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1A

Tonganoxie, admittedly regards the case as something of a “gray area,” something inherently common in the world of school sports. “His behavior on the field, when he’s reprimanding a player, could be interpreted by some people as bullying because he’s in a position of power,” said Weseman, who spent 34 years in the Lawrence school district, including his last nine as superintendent. “On the other hand, that’s how coaches coach. In football, it’s physical in nature, and emotions run pretty high. “You don’t expect someone in a classroom setting to be yelling at someone. But that’s not out of the ordinary on a football field.” Such observations and differentiations can complicate relations among players and coaches, parents and district administrators. “Is it bullying or is it motivation?” said Kevin Harrell, the Lawrence district’s division director for student intervention services. “There’s that line where athletic people work, trying to figure out just where things are.” School plans, district policies and state regulations don’t differentiate between instances of bullying in the

Kline, a Republican who gained national attention as attorney general for investigating abortion providers, became district attorney in January 2007, two months losing re-election as attorney general. In April 2007, Kline dismissed Spradling, a senior prosecutor, who’d worked in the district attorney’s office for 15 years. He contends Spradling was fired over issues such as insubordination, failure to follow office policy and a

classroom or on the field. Bullying — cyber, verbal and physical — is not tolerated, no matter where or when it occurs. But sports provides a different context and, therefore, can spur different interpretations of the same rules.

Is a coach who continually criticizes a player’s lack of strength regarded as motivation in the weight room, or as a persistent personal attack on a student’s character?

Is singling out a player to repeatedly run laps considered a strategy to boost endurance and, therefore, performance? Or is it a punitive move to demean someone who doesn’t measure up to classmates? Such questions apparently came to a head last month, after some parents of students associated with the volleyball program at Eudora High School had complained about Coach Jill Stutler’s handling of players. The Eudora school board ultimately sided with the school’s principal, who chose not to renew Stutler’s coaching contract for next year. Mark Johnson, whose daughter played and went on to become an all-conference player under Stutler, said he appreciated Stutler’s work as a coach, describing her as an old-school, hard-nosed disciplinarian along the lines of legendary Vince Lombardi of the Green Bay Packers and Paul “Bear” Bryant of the Al-

negative attitude. She alleged Kline and a former top deputy, Stephen Maxwell, tolerated incompetence in male attorneys but singled out female attorneys for “unwarranted criticism,” and Kline fired her in retaliation for complaining about it. The county also had been a defendant in the lawsuit, but it agreed in October to pay $7,500 to help settle the case, leaving Kline, Maxwell and the state as defendants. The state is the only defendant in the case before the federal administrative judge. Spradling had become leader of the office’s domestic violence unit under Dis-

trict Attorney Paul Morrison, who defeated Kline in the 2006 attorney general’s race. Morrison had switched parties to run against Kline as a Democrat, allowing GOP officials in Johnson County to fill the vacancy in the DA’s office — and they picked Kline. Kline left the district attorney’s office in January 2009, having lost a Republican primary in August 2008. He’s now a visiting assistant professor of law at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Va., founded by the late evangelist and Rev. Jerry Falwell. Spradling is deputy district

— Mark Johnson, father of a Eudora High School student who played volleyball under Coach Jill Stutler abama Crimson Tide. Sure, Johnson said, players ran laps, endured screams and participated in intense diving drills as part of Stutler’s drive for excellence, which resulted in a state title in 2006. “I don’t call that bullying,” said Johnson, a retired officer who served in the U.S. Army’s special forces. “I call that coaching.” But with the number of girls participating in volleyball at Eudora steadily declining in recent years, critics had argued that such tactics were inappropriate when taken to extremes. Johnson doesn’t agree, but that isn’t the point. “When you’re a disciplinarian, it’s a thin line,” Johnson said. “Especially these days.” Belinda Rehmer, in her fifth year on the Eudora school board, declined to discuss Stutler’s coaching tactics, nor the board’s vote to uphold seeking a new coach for next year. But, in general, Rehmer maintains that bullying — any bullying — is not to be tolerated at school or during any school activities. Sacrificing personal re-

fects that bullying can cause, she said. “I believe there is a better way to get people to do what you want them to do without being intimidating,” Rehmer said. “However, there are many people who don’t — they believe you can’t get anyone motivated without being intimidating. … “Is there a different test for bullying in sports? I think there is. I just don’t agree with it.” At Free State High School in Lawrence, coaches regularly discuss the importance of not engaging in bullying activities, said Mike Hill, the Firebirds’ athletic director. Actions that might have been regarded as acceptable in the “old days” — taping a freshman football player to a goalpost, snapping a teammate with towels in the locker room or shaving someone’s head against their will before practice — are neither welcomed nor embraced in any teambuilding environment. “The old adage ‘Boys will be boys’? That doesn’t work anymore,” said Hill, who also coaches baseball and serves as an assistant principal. “That’s just absolutely not acceptable anymore.” — Schools reporter Mark Fagan can be reached at 832-7188.

KU basketball player McLemore arrested for not appearing in court By George Diepenbrock gdiepenbrock@ljworld.com

Ben McLemore, a Kansas University freshman basketball player who is ineligible to play this year, was arrested on a warrant Tuesday morning for failing to appear to court. According to Douglas County District Court records, McLemore, 18, received a ticket Nov. 4 from a state Alcoholic Beverage Control officer for being a minor in possession of alcohol. The officer alleged that McLemore was found with a Red Bull and vodka at Abe and Jake’s Landing, 8 E. Sixth St. The freshman from St. Louis was given notice to appear

in court Dec. 6, but a judge issued a bench warrant for his arrest when he didn’t show up, according to court records. According to Douglas County Jail records, a sheriff’s officer arrested McLemore on the warrant at 11 a.m. Tuesday on campus. At 1:50 p.m. Tuesday, McLemore posted $500 bond through a bondsman and was given notice to appear in court Dec. 27. The NCAA in October declared McLemore, as a partial academic qualifier, ineligible to play in games in the 20112012 season, and, according to the ruling, he would be allowed to practice beginning in January. “Ben was arrested today for missing a Dec. 6 court date, which is obviously not

acceptable. Ben, not 21, was given a citation earlier for possession of alcohol at Abe and Jake’s, a local Lawrence establishment. He exercised poor judgment,” KU coach Bill Self said in statement. “He also did not let anyone know that he had been cited and had a court appearance because, certainly, we would have made sure he was there. “This will be a learning experience for him and probably a fairly costly one. Any other discipline will be handled in-house. He should begin practicing with our team when grades are turned in (following the fall semester).”

Recycling

Gas

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1A

City commissioners on Tuesday did not issue a formal order for the business to shut down, but it did direct staff members to move forward on enforcement action against the business, which may result in a cease and desist order. Agitated after Tuesday evening’s meeting, owner Bo Killough said he was immediately closing the facility to all curbside recycling companies and residents who routinely bring their household recycling to the business. Killough indicated that he would shut out six curbside recycling businesses that routinely use the facility, and he expected that the closing would make recycling in the community more difficult. The city’s largest curbside recycling operation, run by Deffenbaugh Industries, does not use the facility. Smaller recycling companies, including Curbside Recycle, Sunflower Curbside, Tree Huggers, Ball Recycling, Honey Creek, and Home Recycling Service do use the facility, according to Killough. It wasn’t clear late Tuesday how the operations of those companies would be affected by Killough’s sudden decision. City commissioners heard more than an hour’s worth of public comment against the operation that included video of car crushing, fires, excavation equipment and other industrial activities taking place at the site. Commissioners generally expressed concern that such uses were happening right across the street from a neighborhood. The property is zoned for residential use. But when the property entered the city in 1966, it was home to a salvage business. The business had some rights to continue to exist under a grandfather provision of the code. But neighbors argue that the property long ago lost its grandfather status and that it has been operating in violation of the city’s zoning code. Killough and his attorney dispute that assertion.

“If the information we get from them looks good, I think we should proceed with buying one new trash truck and see how it really works for us,” Schumm said. At Tuesday’s meeting, leaders with Black Hills Energy said they were ready to work with the city on a pilot project. Black Hills has a compressed-naturalgas fueling station at its east Lawrence operations facility. The fueling station is not open to the public, but Black Hills officials said they were willing to open the facility to the city and other organizations that want to test the feasibility of compressed-natural-gas vehicles. Scott Zaremba, an owner of the Lawrence-based Zarco convenience store chain, has filed plans at City Hall to build a retail compressednatural-gas fueling station as part of a remodeling of his convenience store properties at Ninth and Iowa streets. Zaremba has city approval to build the station, but he said having a major fleet operator like the city become a customer would make it easier for the approximately $1 million station to proceed. Not surprisingly, Black Hills officials are bullish on the future of compressed natural gas for vehicles. Hess said fueling stations already are prevalent on parts of the West Coast. The trend is making it way to the Midwest with about 30 retail stations currently in Oklahoma, and stations have opened recently in Lincoln and Omaha, Neb. “I don’t think it is going to take 10 or 20 years to see major changes,” Hess said. “I think in the next three to five years you will be able to buy natural gas about anywhere.” Officials at Kansas University’s Transportation Research Institute said it was too soon to say whether such an aggressive time line would prove to be true for compressed-natural-gas vehicles. But Ilya Tabakh, a research associate at the institute, said the technology was getting a lot of discussion in the transportation industry. — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be “There is definitely poten-

City rejects apartment expansion plan A controversial proposal to expand an apartment complex near Clinton Parkway and Crossgate Drive was struck down by Lawrence city commissioners Tuesday night. Commissioners on a 3-2 vote rejected a plan to add 136 onebedroom apartments to the Remington Square apartment complex, which already has 224 one-bedroom apartments. Several neighbors near the development objected to the plans, arguing that the area already has an excess of apartments. The development group, led by Lawrence businessman Tim Stultz, argued that a recently approved district plan designated the area as appropriate for additional apartment development. City staff members recommended approval of the apartment project, but a majority of commissioners said they believed that neighbors had a reasonable expectation that the Remington Square complex was not going to be expanded in the future. Mayor Aron Cromwell and commissioners Mike Amyx and Bob Schumm voted against the project.

Report recommends ways to fight ‘peak oil’ The city of Lawrence now has a plan to deal with the problem of “peak oil.” City commissioners unanimously agreed to receive the final report from the city’s Peak Oil Task Force. The report provides a series of recommendations on how the community should react to the rising price of oil and possible disruptions in availability as world oil supplies fail to keep up with worldwide demand. Among the recommendations are: Continue planning for “complete streets” that promote pedestrian and bicycle uses; commit to a growth pattern that supports mixed-use developments that promote biking and walking; reduce Lawrence’s water consumption by changing city water rates; and add edible landscape features such as fruit trees, nut trees and community gardens to city parks

BRIEFLY

BILLS THIS WINTER As long as the weather cooperates, natural gas bills for Lawrence residents should be about the same or lower than they were last winter. Officials with Black Hills Energy, the city’s largest natural-gas utility, said the price of natural gas is at about the same level it was a year ago. That means that a customer’s heating bill will be determined more by how much gas they use rather than the price of gas this season. Curt Floerchinger, a Black Hills spokesman, said forecasting services the utility subscribes to predict winter temperatures to be below normal from January through March. Natural gas prices are down about 70 percent from levels in 2008 as more domestic supplies have been tapped using new extraction technologies. tial because you have a ready fuel supply,” Tabakh said. “It all kind of depends on how you get the gas, how you get it to the stations, how you use it in vehicles. You’ll need to do a cradle-to-grave type of analysis to really understand its benefits and drawbacks.” Natural gas supplies have been on a steady rise since 2008, when “fracking,” a new type of extraction technology, became more prevalent in the industry. As a result, natural gas prices are down about 70 percent from 2008 levels. Fracking, though, has drawn concern from some environmentalists over worries that it can contaminate groundwater supplies. Currently it costs about $10,000 to convert a standard vehicle to operate on compressed natural gas. But Schumm said research suggests that for fuel-guzzling vehicles, such as trash trucks, the payback can be about three years. “I think it is a technology that has a future,” Schumm said.

Cat-shooting case going to trial A Lawrence man accused of shooting a stray cat twice last May is taking his case to trial, and his attorney says he has an alibi. Lawrence Municipal Court officials said Tuesday a judge scheduled a Jan. 19 trial for Jimmy R. Wilkins, 73, who faces charges of animal cruelty and discharging a firearm in the city limits. Lawrence police said animal control officers rescued the 2-year-old cat, later named Bullet, from a trap at a mobile home park in the 100 block of Michigan Street. Police said a witness alleged he heard a neighbor shoot what sounded like a gun earlier in the day and then observed the cat in the trap. Officers said the cat had been shot twice. But Wilkins’ defense attorney Hatem Chahine said Tuesday he was filing a motion for an alibi witness to show Wilkins was visiting his sister that Memorial Day weekend and not in the area when the shooting occurred. Chahine said that Wilkins and his wife are animal lovers and that his family has often given stray cats they’ve trapped to the humane society or released them in other areas. According to the Lawrence Humane Society, Bullet recovered from his injuries. A family later adopted him.

Jingle Jog set for Thursday By Christine Metz cmetz@ljworld.com

ONLINE: See the video at WellCommons.com

On Thursday, a barrage of Christmas spirit will sweep down Lawrence’s Massachusetts Street. Every year, members of the community workout group led by Don “Red Dog” Gardner celebrate the season by donning festive garb and holiday lights and run through downtown. This year’s event, which is open to anyone, begins at 6 p.m. in the parking lot behind Kizer-Cummings, 833 Mass. The run, which is about a mile, loops runners along Massachusetts from Sixth Street to South Park. “I can always stand there at Kizer-Cummings and tell where they are at by all the horn honks,” Gardner said. Gardner is best known for the summer workouts he leads at Memorial Stadium, guiding hundreds of Lawrence residents through situps, pushups, runs, sprints and other forms of exercise. Laura Dahnert proposed the Jingle Jog nearly a decade ago. She got the idea from a running group in Kansas City that would run from bar to bar decked out in holiday lights. “I thought the idea of running in Christmas lights and tying jingle bells to your shoes sounded like a blast,” said Dahnert, who also admits to being prone to throwing theme parties. The Red Dog group decided to spread the joy downtown and picked Thursday night, when stores are open later. “I thought she was crazy. But it has turned out to be a really great thing,” Gardner said about the idea. Runners come decked in ornaments, tinsel, Santa hats, reindeer antlers and elf costumes. During several runs, Dahnert has dressed as Santa. Of course, as a runner, she doesn’t quite have the traditional Santa build, so she has to pull the belt extra tight. “There’s lots of silliness,” Dahnert said. Along with spreading holiday cheer, the group passes around a velvet red stocking to raise money for local nonprofits. This year, money will be raised for Toys for Tots and the Boys and Girls Club of Lawrence. Gardner said the event is for runners or walkers. Wellbehaved dogs are allowed, and young children are encouraged to come. Afterward, treats will be served, and the group will visit downtown drinking establishments.

U.S. urges full ban on cellphones for drivers By Joan Lowy Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Texting, emailing or chatting on a cellphone while driving is simply too dangerous to be allowed, federal safety investigators declared Tuesday, urging all states to impose total bans except for emergencies. Inspired by recent deadly crashes, including one in which a teenager sent or received 11 text messages in 11 minutes before an accident, the recommendation would apply even to hands-free devices, a much stricter rule than any current state law. The unanimous recommendation by the five-member National Transportation Safety Board would make an exception for devices deemed to aid driver safety such as GPS navigation systems. A group representing state highway safety offices called the recommendation “a game-changer.” “States aren’t ready to support a total ban yet, but this may start the discussion,” Jonathan Adkins, a spokesman for the Governors Highway Safety Association, said. NTSB chairman Deborah Hersman acknowledged that the recommendation would be unpopular with many people and that complying would involve changing what has become ingrained behavior for many Americans. While the NTSB doesn’t have the power to impose restrictions, its recommendations carry significant weight with federal regulators and congressional and state lawmakers. Another recommendation issued Tuesday urges states to aggressively enforce current bans on text messag-

ing and the use of cellphones and other portable electronic devices while driving. “We’re not here to win a popularity contest,” she said. “No email, no text, no update, no call is worth a human life.” Currently, 35 states and the District of Columbia ban texting while driving, while nine states and D.C. bar hand-held cellphone use. Thirty states ban all cellphone use for beginning drivers. But enforcement is generally not a high priority, and no states ban the use of hands-free devices for all drivers. A total cellphone ban would be the hardest to accept for many people. Leila Noelliste, 26, a Chicago blogger and business owner, said being able to talk on the cellphone “when I’m running around town” is important to self-employed people like herself. “I don’t think they should ban cellphones because I don’t think you’re really distracted when you’re talking, it’s when you’re texting,” she said. When you’re driving and talking, “your eyes are still on the road.” The immediate impetus for the recommendation of state bans was a deadly highway pileup near Gray Summit, Mo., last year in which a 19-year-old pickup driver sent and received 11 texts in 11 minutes just before the accident. NTSB investigators said they are seeing increasing texting, cellphone calls and other distracting behavior by drivers in accidents involving all kinds of transportation. It has become routine to immediately request the preservation of cellphone and texting records when an investigation is begun.

Man gets probation for Eudora burglaries A Douglas County judge sentenced a 29-year-old Eudora man to serve two years on probation for his role in a series of Eudora burglaries earlier this year. District Judge Kay Huff ordered COURTS David Allen Thomas to also undergo a mental health evaluation as a special condition of his probation. In November, he pleaded no contest to three felony charges — two counts of burglary of a motor vehicle and one count of burglary — and eight misdemeanor charges. Eudora police in July linked Thomas to 18 burglaries of vehicles and sheds. Two other Eudora residents were charged in the case: Leah D. Thomas and Joseph L. Klebenstein. Klebenstein entered a plea and has not been sentenced. Leah Thomas faces a trial in 2012. If David Thomas is found to violate terms of his probation, he faces 13 months in prison in this case and likely additional time for a drug possession conviction. He also must pay $820 in restitution.

Upcoming issues A visit with the Kansas governor produced a few items of interest to Lawrence and the rest of the state.

W

hile discussing a number of issues facing the state Tuesday, Gov. Sam Brownback provided several tidbits of information that will be of interest to local residents. During a meeting with Journal-World staff members, the governor confirmed that his budget would include funding to replace the city and county funds currently committed to pay rent for the local office of Social and Rehabilitation Services. The deal worked out to keep the Lawrence SRS office open called for the SRS secretary to make a good-faith effort to find state funding for that purpose. Although it remains to be seen whether that funding will be in the final budget approved by state legislators and signed by Brownback, it’s good news that the appropriation will be in the governor’s initial proposal. Local officials should work with the state to reduce the cost of keeping the local SRS office open, but that cost ultimately is a state, not a local, responsibility. Another state action that has drawn considerable local attention is the current status of the Kansas Arts Commission and its companion Kansas Arts Foundation. Brownback used his line-item veto to eliminate all funding for the KAC from the state budget this year. He pointed out on Tuesday that the current situation wasn’t what he had initially proposed for the arts and acknowledged that he wasn’t completely satisfied with the current structure. When asked, he confirmed that he planned to revisit the situation in his proposed budget for next year but declined to give any details. The destruction of the KAC has been broadly criticized across the state, and it’s good Brownback is willing to take another look at the plan. Hopefully, the governor will be able to work with legislators to forge a good solution for arts funding that will avoid the kind of standoff that occurred in the last legislative session. At minimum, such a plan should provide some support for the staff and structure that allowed KAC to provide so much benefit to arts across the state. Most people in Lawrence also will applaud the governor’s assertion concerning the South Lawrence Trafficway. Brownback said the SLT is an important part of the state’s overall traffic system and he plans to make sure funding is available to finish it. “This one has got to get done,” he said. “It is going to get done.” After decades of debate, it’s good to know that funding will be available to build this road if no new legal obstacles occur. More details on revisions to the state school finance formula will be announced today, and the governor said he still is working on his tax overhaul. Both will be part of a huge agenda for the upcoming legislative session. Many issues that could fundamentally change the social and economic fabric of Kansas will be on the table. The governor is providing a few details on his plans now but many remain to be revealed or, perhaps, worked out. Kansans who care about the future of the state should keep a close eye on Topeka and stay in close contact with their elected representatives during the upcoming session.

U.S., Israel must coordinate on Iran Early this month, the top U.S. military officer was asked whether he thought Israel would alert the United States ahead of time if it attacked Iran’s nuclear program. “I don’t know,” said Gen. Martin Dempsey, the new chairman of the Joint Chiefs, in a blunt assessment. In other words, our military is unsure whether our closest Mideast ally would give us advance notice of an act that could drag us into another Mideast war. I’m aware that Dempsey’s remarks might have been a bit of psychological warfare. There’s the obvious advantage of giving us deniability. And there might be benefit to portraying Israel as beyond U.S. control. It might give the Iranian regime pause if it believed Israel was getting ready to take matters into its own hands. And China might be more willing to endorse tough sanctions on Iran, as Washington has fruitlessly urged, if Beijing thought the alternative was an Israeli military attack. Yet, there is something about Dempsey’s words that should make us uneasy. They exemplify a disturbing level of mistrust between Washington and Jerusalem that makes them ring true. This mistrust is not, as Republican election campaign rhetoric would claim, a product of the administration’s failure to support Israel. On the contrary, defense cooperation between the two countries has never been closer. Moreover, President Obama has twisted himself in knots to support Israel’s opposition to Palestinian statehood efforts at the United Nations. Nor is the mistrust — on the surface, anyway — a product of public differences over approaching Iran’s nuclear program. After early attempts at engaging Iran failed, Obama adopted a tough stance toward Tehran, including harsh economic sanctions and diplomatic isolation. The presi-

dent repeats at every opportunity that Iran will not be allowed to develop nuclear weapons and that all options (including military) are on the table. Yet, as I witnessed at a fascinating, high-level dialogue in Washington between current and former Israeli and American officials, along with journalists and intellectuals, Israelis don’t believe Obama. At the eighth Saban Forum, sponsored by the Brookings Institution, I heard Israelis say repeatedly that Obama and his team were not credible when they said Iran wouldn’t be permitted to have nuclear weapons. By the end of the forum, however, I was convinced that the issue isn’t so much credibility, as it is the Israeli conviction that the United States and Israel have a different take on the urgency of the threat. Washington thinks the costs of a military strike on Iran would be so high that it shouldn’t be considered unless every other option is exhausted. Israel, on the other hand, thinks the Iran threat is immediate.

As Dempsey said, the United States believes sanctions and diplomatic pressure are the right path, while leaving open the possibility of future military action. “I’m not sure the Israelis share our assessment (of how to handle Iran and its nuclear program),” the chairman told Reuters. “And because they don’t and because to them this is an existential threat, I think probably that it’s fair to say our expectations are different right now.” In other words, the United States thinks there is still plenty of time to explore options other than military — although many Israelis don’t. At the forum, Israeli participants expressed concern that a U.S. decision on using force would come too late, perhaps not until Iran publicly announces it is withdrawing from the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty and kicks out international inspectors. By that time, they worry, most of the program may be deep underground. Yet the most salient point, I believe, was made by Secretary of Defense Leon E. Panetta, in the only forum address that was on the record. He pointed out that, at best, a military strike “might postpone (Iran’s nuclear program) maybe one, possibly two years.” It wouldn’t destroy, merely delay, Iran’s ability to produce an atomic weapon. However, the “unintended consequences” of such a strike would be enormous, Panetta cautioned. Now isolated, Iran’s rulers would get renewed regional support. Prospects for regime change within the country would shrink. An oil price spike would undermine the fragile global economy, while rewarding the ayatollahs. A military strike could precipitate another regional war at a time when the Mideast is already going through convulsions. It could embroil us in a new Mideast war, at a time when

nuclear-armed Pakistan presents a greater danger to U.S. interests than Iran does. (Careless talk by Republican presidential candidates in support of hitting Tehran ignores the strategic implications of such an act.) Israeli participants at the forum criticized Panetta for discussing the downside of an attack in public. Yet most of them also stressed that force must be the last option. Some even made clear that they believe it is preferable to use covert means, along with tougher sanctions, to delay Iran’s program — although they don’t think U.S. sanctions are tough enough. In other words, their approach was not that different from the administration’s. After all, if a military strike would only push the program back by one or two years, why not try other options? Yet the forum — and my talks with individual participants — still left me with the impression that Israel might attack Iran without giving us advance notice, especially because Jerusalem fears Obama would say no. Such an Israeli move would cost America dearly. Israel’s military capacity doesn’t match America’s, and the United States would be dragged into any military action. Moreover, we would inevitably be blamed for an Israeli strike, with Iran and its proxies striking back at U.S. interests in the Muslim world. More to the point, the United States is Israel’s closest ally. For Jerusalem to ignore U.S. concerns and go it alone would be a betrayal of that friendship. Yet one can’t rule this prospect out. I came away from the Saban Forum thinking how urgent it is that U.S. and Israeli officials do better at coordinating Iran strategy in private. And Israel must factor in American interests. Otherwise, one can envision disaster ahead. — Trudy Rubin is a columnist and editorial board member for the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Who does not like fried mush? And what dish is cheaper or better? In this venture the Lawrence Creamery is following the lead of several creameries that have been engaged in the business for some years in Kansas City where the products have proven very popular.” “The Spirit of Christmas has arrived. In fact it has been hovering about for quite a while but now it has settled down, bringing its usual message of good cheer and gift giving. One way that the Spirit of Christmas manifests itself is in the decorations, and also the display of articles.” — Compiled by Sarah St. John

America once was a nation of ‘makers’ As regular readers of this column know, I have a passion for old books and American history. The other day I was in Topeka and had the opportunity to visit the used book shop owned by my friend Lloyd Zimmer. While looking through his shelves I came across I book that I knew I had to own: “Cincinnati in 1851” by Charles Cist. This small volume contains a study of the population, industry and architecture of the city of Cincinnati 160 years ago. Among the most interesting chapters is one on the various trades and professions carried out by residents based on the 1850 national census. Given all the attention in the media these days about the employment market, about what jobs are disappearing and what jobs seem like good bets for the future, I thought that this analysis of the job market in 1851 was fascinating. To put it mildly, the nature of work in America, judged by this book, has changed greatly in the past century and a half. In 1851, Cincinnati had 1,569 bootmakers, 868 coopers (barrel makers), 2,318 carpenters, 40 daguerreotypists (photographers on silvercoated metal plates), 298 printers,

176 saddlers and 7,864 laborers. Among the more unusual jobs we see very little of today were 11 gilders, 130 riverboat pilots, seven bedstead makers, five bonnet pressers, 42 carriage drivers, and four city criers. Today’s professions were well represented in 1851 Cincinnati. There were 10 architects, 11 professors, five civil engineers, 26 editors (presumably newspaper editors), 176 lawyers, 153 druggists, nine nurses, four opticians and 278 physicians. There were also 11 people who listed their profession as “gen-

tleman,” one bishop, four patent medicine makers, two congressmen and 42 people who listed their occupation on the census as “thieves”! To combat the latter there were 28 policemen, six magistrates, and two judges. To put these various numbers in perspective, it is important to know that the overall population of Cincinnati in 1850 was 115,000. Thus, there were only 278 physicians and 176 lawyers for 115,000 people. Of course, these figures come from a time when the industrial revolution was just starting up in the western United States and when the word “outsourcing” had not been invented. It was also a period during which the idea of craft and being a craftsman was held in high regard. To be a carpenter, cooper or printer was to follow a proud trade. There were office workers in Cincinnati in 1851; the census listed 1,853 “clerks” but it was not nearly so prestigious as being a member of one of the skilled trades. This was an America in which those who could make things and fix things were praised and held up as examples of success. It was a nation of “makers” and inventors and the 1850 census

illustrates this fact. The text accompanying these statistics also includes comments about the importance of immigrants to the U.S. economy: “To the industry of foreigners, Cincinnati is indebted In a great degree, for its rapid growth. Their presence here has accelerated the execution of our public improvements, and given an impulse to our immense manufacturing operations, without which, they could not have reached their present extent and importance.” I think that it is extremely important for us to remember what made this great country great: hard-working folks, many of them who came to the U.S. seeking a chance to better themselves. These were people who took on whatever tasks needed to be done, took pride in their skills and the products they made, and understood that their labors would not only provide financial support for themselves and their families but would also make America great. There are lessons we can learn from them. — Mike Hoeflich, a distinguished professor in the Kansas University School of Law, writes a regular column for the Journal-World.

Group names Roberts’ aide Kansan of Year TOPEKA — An aide to U.S. Sen. Pat Roberts has been named Kansan of the Year by a group that celebrates the state’s heritage. Harold Stones, of Topeka, will be honored Jan. 27 in Topeka at the annual banquet of the Native Sons and Daughters of Kansas. The group picks both a Kansan of the Year, honoring a native of the state, and a Distinguished Kansan of the Year, which can honor someone born elsewhere. Stones has been director of special projects for Roberts since 1997. He serves primarily as the Kansas Republican’s liaison to military bases, local governments, chambers of commerce, economic development groups and private companies. Stones also is a former CEO for the Kansas Bankers Association. Roberts himself was Distinguished Kansan in 1999.

MLB deal includes extra replay NEW YORK (AP) — Baseball’s new labor contract includes more video replay, the chance for a longer All-Star break and a small, but likely welcome perk for players: the chance to get a private room instead of a roommate during spring training. The Associated Press obtained the document that includes several changes, many starting next year. They include allowing teams from the same division to meet in the playoffs before the league championship series, a ban on players getting tattoos with cor-

porate logos and the possibility of players wearing microphones during games. Players already have ratified the hundreds of pages contained in Major League Baseball’s Memorandum of Understanding. Owners are scheduled to vote Thursday. Also part of the deal: Any big leaguer who wants to change uniform numbers without switching teams better give eight months’ notice unless he’s willing to buy warehouses full of his overstocked jerseys.

MLB wants to expand replay to include fair-or-foul calls, “whether a fly ball or line drive was trapped� and fan interference all around the ballpark. Umpires still must give their approval, and it’s uncertain whether the extra replay will be in place by opening day. Video review began in August 2008, but only to look at potential home runs. The All-Star break will be expanded to four days, rather than the traditional three-day gap. The five-year deal says starting in 2013 that MLB “shall have the right to

elect to switch the All-Star game from Tuesday to Wednesday and the Home Run Derby from Monday to Tuesday.� Sixty-nine of 82 All-Star games have been played on Tuesday, according to STATS LLC. Gone, too, are the days of roommates, something that dates back decades, to the days players rode the rails to Florida. Now, all players on 40-man rosters are assured of single rooms during spring training. They’ve had that perk during the regular season since 1997.

Stern now public enemy No. 1 in L.A.

Steelers’ Harrison suspended for one game

By Bill Plaschke Los Angeles Times

Five days into this new NBA, there is already a new rivalry. The city of Los Angeles versus David Stern. We don’t like each other, not anymore, not one bit, not after the NBA commissioner’s misuse of his powers has ripped out the heart of one Los Angeles team and the hopes of the other. Stern is the Boston Celtics with a smug grin. He is the Dallas Mavericks with a weak spine. He wears a suit, but he has shamefully spent the last week as if sitting in a Sacramento cheap seat screaming a chant that can be heard from here to Bourbon Street. “Beat L.A!� David Stern hollered, speaking as the de facto owner of the New Orleans Hornets, a position that should never be held by the boss of any league. Yes, since last season, the NBA has owned the failing Hornets. So, yes, as the NBA’s top executive, Stern has the right to veto Hornets trades like Jerry Buss can veto Lakers trades. But should he? Shouldn’t those calls be made by an independent consultant working in close conjunction with the New Orleans basketball people? Shouldn’t basketball learn from baseball, which in recent years has quietly and successfully overseen transitions within the Los Angeles Dodgers, the Texas Rangers and the Washington Nationals? Stern has the right to run the Hornets, but the duty to stay out of their business, a duty he has recently ignored, such that the integrity of the league has suffered more in five days than during the lockout’s 149 days. “Completely unexpected,� is how Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak describes Stern’s behavior, and he’s being completely kind, because Stern has been completely derelict in his mandate to treat all 30 NBA teams equally. First, on Thursday, Stern and his lieutenants killed a trade of star point guard Chris Paul to the Lakers, under pressure from other league owners, which included a venomous email from Cleveland owner Dan Gilbert. Then, Monday, under the direction of Stern’s office, the Hornets ground down the Clippers until their proposed trade also vanished. The Lakers and Clippers deals weren’t killed in the same fashion; Stern’s involvement in the Clippers deal was less direct, as the Clippers have dealt only with Hornets General Manager Dell Demps, and there is still a chance that Demps can sell some form of this deal to Stern. But in both cases, the damage caused by a commissioner’s office with a huge conflict of interest could be considerable. Start with the Lakers. Lamar Odom and Pau Gasol were gone. Then they weren’t. Then Odom became so upset at the idea that the Lakers didn’t want him, he demanded to be gone, giving the Lakers the excuse they needed to ship him out and save about $34 million in salary and luxury taxes. I’d be screaming at Mitch Kupchak right now if I weren’t so mad at Stern. Next up, the Clippers, who waded through the Lakers carnage to forge a solid deal that would send to the Hornets Chris Kaman, Eric Bledsoe, Al-Farouq Aminu and a 2012 first-round draft pick from Minnesota that would surely be high lottery. Stern’s biggest complaints about the Lakers deal seemingly were all answered in the Clippers deal. These guys were younger and more athletic, with Kaman’s huge contract coming off the books after this season and that draft pick potentially worthy of a franchise cornerstone. As owner of the Hornets, if he can’t approve a deal that would give the franchise a future in the wake of the impending departure of its best player, then he should just shut down the franchise.

PITTSBURGH — Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison has carved out a niche as one of the NFL’s most feared defenders over the last five years by straddling the line between clean and dirty play. After one dangerous hit too many, the league apparently has seen enough. The NFL suspended Harrison for one game following his helmet-to-facemask hit on Browns quarterback Colt McCoy last Thursday, making Harrison the first player to miss game time as a penalty under the league’s revamped policy on such collisions. Harrison’s agent, Bill Parise, said Tuesday afternoon Harrison already had filed an appeal and expected it to be heard later this week by Art Shell or Ted Cottrell, jointly appointed by the NFL and the players’ association to hear such cases. They’ll have to determine Harrison’s intent when he laid out McCoy late in the fourth quarter of Pittsburgh’s 14-3 victory. The 2008 NFL Defensive Player of the Year was penalized for roughing the passer on the play and said Monday he believed the hit didn’t warrant further punishment. NFL Executive Vice President Ray Anderson disagreed, pointing out the violation marked the fifth illegal hit on a quarterback by Harrison in the last three seasons. The fourtime Pro Bowler also has been fined on two other occasions for unnecessary roughness over the same period. Though Harrison hasn’t been fined for such a hit in over a year, he was considered a repeat offender under the 2011 League Policies for Players manual, leading to the suspension. Harrison, who has been highly critical of the league’s crackdown on vicious hits, thanked his fans for their support on his Twitter account after the suspension was levied, adding, “I’m just going to move on from here and get ready for my next game.� Barring a successful appeal, that won’t be until the Steelers (10-3) face St. Louis on Christmas Eve.

procedures and protocol on head injuries. McCoy sustained a concussion when he was hit last week by Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison, who was suspended for one game for the helmet-to-helmet hit, his fifth illegal one on a quarterback in the past three seasons. McCoy was off the field for less than four minutes after the hit. Medical representatives from the league and NFLPA met Tuesday with the Browns’ medical staff and discussed the team’s response and treatment of McCoy’s injury, which may have exposed some previously unaddressed issues tied to concussion policies.

ST. LOUIS — Second baseman Skip Schumaker has agreed to a $3 million, two-year deal with the St. Louis Cardinals, who did not tender a contract offer to infielder Ryan Theriot before Monday night’s deadline. The 31-year-old Schumaker batted .283 in 117 games for the Cardinals this year.

Wallace gets probation PONTIAC, MICH. — Detroit Pistons center Ben Wallace was sentenced Tuesday to a year of probation but avoided jail time on drunken driving and gun possession charges stemming from a September traffic stop in suburban Detroit. Oakland County Circuit Court Judge Shalina Kumar also sentenced Wallace to fines, court costs and 30 hours of community service. Wallace was arrested at about 3 a.m. on Sept. 24 in Bloomfield Township after officers spotted him driving a Cadillac Escalade erratically. An unloaded pistol was in a backpack.

Nuggets trade for Mavs pair DENVER — The Denver Nuggets acquired versatile swingman Rudy Fernandez and forward Corey Brewer from the Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday for a future second-round pick. The trade gives the Nuggets added depth as the team attempts to work out deals with free agent big man Nene and guard Arron Afflalo, who is a restricted free agent.

Ex-LHS star Vinoverski steps up at Pitt State By Benton Smith basmith@ljworld.com

The ability to adapt is a critical aspect of every successful football player’s repertoire. For Jared Vinoverski, that quality has come in quite handy. When the Lawrence High football product first arrived at Pittsburg State University after transferring from Drake, the program with which he originally signed, Vinoverski was on the bottom of the totem pole at wide receiver. His freshman season in 2010 included some bright flashes of promise. As a reserve, he caught six passes and a touchdown in four games before suffering a season-ending injury at a practice, when he broke a wrist. Then, when spring drills came around, the wideout learned Gorillas coach Tim Beck and his staff wanted to move Vinoverski to safety in order to provide the secondary with some quality depth. The former Lion didn’t mind the move to the defensive side of the ball, but he had only played corner at LHS, so safety was “a lot different” for him when he first tried it out this past spring. Still, he picked up the nuances he needed to and became a backup free safety on the Pitt State depth chart as a sophomore. “I think I came a long way, and I’m getting a lot more used to it now,” Vinoverski said. “I like it.” He didn’t mind his role as a backup, either, as PSU (121) won its first eight games of the season and earned a No. 2 seed in its region of the NCAA Division II playoffs. Vinoverski got on the field now and then, often on spe-

His role remained the same in the Gorillas’ first two postseason victories, over Washburn and Northwest Missouri State. As Pitt State played host to Delta State Saturday in a national semifinal, though, Vinoverski was thrown into the action when

starting safety Jason Peete tore some cartilage in his ribs. The 6-foot-2, 204-pound sophomore stepped in for his fallen teammate in the second half and played the remainder of the game as the Gorillas won, 49-23, and secured the program’s fifth championship-game appearance. Vinoverski said he was thoroughly prepared for his increased role, because the Gorillas had dissected Delta State film in the days lead-

Disappointed with the drubbing being issued to Free State’s starters in the third, Law turned to his bench late in the quarter, and stuck with the subs for the remainder of the game. For most of the fourth quarter, backups Blake Winslow, Logan Bannister, McFarland, Wilson Hack and Reshawn Caro took on the No. 5-ranked team in 6A. Although Free State was down 20-plus points throughout the final quarter, Law liked what he saw out of the bench players, and decided to keep them in, even though they were winded. “I was real pleased with how our second lineup competed,” Law said. “We’ve got to get the rest of the roster to compete that way.” Winslow scored eight of his 10 points in the final stanza, and said the subs played with a purpose.

“We just wanted to come off the bench and prove a point, and at least bring us back a little and try to give the starters a little energy,

Shane, his two brothers and their father lived within two miles of each other, so his preference was to stay in New Mexico. Shane’s wife, Kimberly, and their daughter, Gracie, loved their lives, too. The coach needed to coach. “When Haskell came up, I’m Native American — my mother’s from the Taos Pueblo (tribe) — that was part of it for me, the Native American aspect, coming to a university like this, with that type of history,” Flanagan said. The seeds of his desire to coach at Haskell were planted in stories by his father. “He coached on a reservation in New Mexico,” Flanagan said. “He was there three or four years, and those are basically his fondest years. He tells stories of how he turned the program around and had caravans of people following him to the games, stuff like that.” How did he do it? “He made the kids accountable,” the son said of the fa-

ing up to the big game, and his coaches gave him some quick reminders before he took the field: “Keep everything in front of you. Don’t let any of the big plays happen.” Considering PSU’s 35-13 halftime lead, the substitute safety was able to play a little more relaxed, too. Vinoverski said he wasn’t nearly as nervous when he got into the game as he was when he played safety for the first time in his career, earlier in the season.

During one trip, while having lunch downtown, Don Flanagan ran into a familiar face. He and Kansas assistant basketball coach Joe Dooley knew each other from when Dooley was on Fran Fraschilla’s staff at New Mexico. Dooley invited Flanagan to attend a KU practice, but Flanagan had a more pressing concern, helping his son at his practice. Weakened by academic-ineligibility problems, Haskell is off to a 4-10 start, but is 4-0 at home in the Coffin Complex. Don’s help won’t stop there. He’s on the lookout for talent at Native American-dominant basketball powerhouse high schools in Arizona and New Mexico.

One time, he up-faked a guy and the guy came down and landed with his teeth on top of Shane’s head.” Now it’s the younger Flanagan’s job to try to get his players to match the intensity he brought to the court. He doesn’t have any paid assistants helping him, just three student assistants. Also, he and Chad Kills Crow, second-year coach of the 6-6 men’s program, work closely together and swap ideas. “I really like Chad,” Don Flanagan said. “They’re about the same age and they get along. Both those programs are going to get a lot better. They’ll get better.”

and Dineen accounted for nine straight FSHS points. Winslow, a sophomore guard, said Free State has the pieces to become a much better team. “We’ve just got to believe in ourselves,” he said. “I think we came out and didn’t really believe.” At 7 p.m. Friday, Free State plays host to Lawrence (3-1).

“My teammates did a really good job,” he said, “and it was a lot easier on me getting thrown into the fire.” The former All-Sunflower League player from Lawrence now has five games of playing safety on his college resume and has made six solo tackles and assisted on three others. That experience, especially playing most of a half this past week, figures to do the sophomore well as Pitt State takes on Wayne State (12-3) for the national championship Saturday morning (10 a.m. local time, televised on ESPN2) in Florence, Ala. Though Peete is planning on giving it a go for the title game, Vinoverski said he is preparing with the same mentality as usual. “Obviously, I’ve got to be ready no matter what,” he said. “I’m on special teams, too, so I’ll be in the game, but I’ve got to be ready at any time (to play safety).” After a walk-through on Monday and practice Tuesday, the Gorillas are sched-

uled to fly down to Alabama for the title game today. Vinoverski said their routine will be pleasantly different this week, as the players will be visiting some elementary schools to read to children and attending some banquets before the big game. There’s been much talk among the Gorillas, Vinoverski said, of what they’ve accomplished. “It’s so surreal right now,” he said. “We can believe we’re in the championship, but at the same time we’re like, ‘Wow. Where’d the season go?’ We can’t believe we’re going to Alabama and stuff like that.” Through Pitt State’s playoff run, Vinoverski said the team has tried to stick with the same routine, and the players and coaches don’t want the things that accompany a championship game to distract them from the primary goal. “We’re only there for one thing,” he said, “and that’s to win a national championship.”

HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL

Pioli: ‘I need to do a better job’ KANSAS CITY, MO. (AP) — Scott Pioli spoke quietly and carefully, not at all like his reputation might suggest. He had just fired coach Todd Haley after a miserable 5-8 start, leaving the Chiefs’ general manager to explain the organization’s failures. Pioli pointed his finger right at himself. “We have a locker room that has talent. We also have a good makeup of character in that locker room,” Pioli said, “but it’s abundantly clear that we’re not in a spot we need to be with our record where it is and our team in a position it is. I need to do a better job.” Kansas City has lost five of its last six games to fall from a tie for first in the AFC West to the brink of another losing season. After winning the division title last year, devastating injuries and discouraging losses have quickly turned the environment surrounding the team toxic. The Chiefs’ 37-10 loss to the New York Jets on Sunday culminated in the decision to fire Haley, once a rising star in the NFL, and the appointment of defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel as interim coach for the final three games of the regular season. The Chiefs host the unbeaten Green Bay Packers on Sunday. There was no shortage of blame to heap on Haley, from an unorthodox approach to training camp that left the team woefully unprepared to the decision to stick with journeyman Tyler Haley Palko as his quarterback once Matt Cassel went down with a season-ending injury. But there has been just as much reason to blame Pioli for the shortcomings, something he was quick to acknowledge. “I do believe in the players

Palko has led the offense to two touchdowns in four games. Jackie Battle and Thomas Jones have been unable to fill in for Pro Bowl running back Jamaal Charles, who was lost for the season with a torn ACL. The tight end position has been virtually non-existent since Tony Moeaki sustained the same injury, and Pro Bowl safety Eric Berry’s torn ACL has left an enormous void in the secondary. The fact that the cupboard was bare was particularly discouraging given the reputation Pioli cultivated during his time in the front office of the New England Patriots. After the NFL lockout wiped away much of the offseason and forced teams to

scramble to sign free agents, it was thought that Pioli would be able to shine. He’s considered among the best in the game at finding players who may have slipped under the radar, one of the reasons he’s been honored several times as the league’s executive of the year. Instead, Pioli brought in just a handful of players and hardly took a bite out of the salary cap, leaving the Chiefs with more money available than nearly every other franchise in the league. “I do have a lot of confidence in Scott and I do believe he’s going to help us be successful over the long run,” said Chiefs Chairman and CEO Clark Hunt, who likewise has received plenty of fan criticism for the appearance that he’d rather make money than field a winning team. Pioli’s inability to land talent on the open market hasn’t been his only shortfall.

There have been 24 draft picks in his three seasons running the team, only a handful of which have given Kansas City meaningful downs this season. Among the most glaring misses are Tyson Jackson, the third overall pick in 2009, and third-round pick Alex Magee, who isn’t even on the team. The Chiefs’ best players — Tamba Hali, Dwayne Bowe, Jamaal Charles, Brandon Flowers, Brandon Carr and Derrick Johnson — were holdovers from the previous regime. “We’ve made some progress the last couple years and we’re at the point where some of that progress has slowed down,” Pioli said. “I do think we have a good, strong core of players here, but clearly I need to get to work, too, because if we’re going to be a good football team and continue to get better and consistently compete for championships, we need to have a good roster.” That goes for whoever is chosen as the next head coach. Crennel has said he wants a shot at the permanent job, and there are several other experienced coaches who have ties to Pioli. The decision to fire Haley with three games remaining gives him a chance to start surveying the candidates and whittling down the list. Pioli said he understands the importance of getting this hire right. He was the one who picked Haley as his first head coach, and he saw firsthand how things unraveled this season. Now that he’s missed on one head coach, he knows another failure may cost him his own job. “Probably nobody is harder on himself or holds himself more accountable than Scott,” Hunt said, when asked specifically about Pioli’s job status. “As hard-working as he is, I know he’ll redouble his efforts to make sure we’re more competitive next year and the year after that.”

Crennel interested in second shot at NFL head coaching job KANSAS CITY, MO. (AP) — Romeo Crennel wants another chance to be a head coach in the NFL. He may have the opportunity with the Kansas City Chiefs if he can hold together a franchise in disarray over the next three weeks. Crennel spoke Tuesday for the first time since he was appointed interim coach, telling reporters on a conference call that he wants to be considered for the permanent job in Kansas City. Crennel will lead the Chiefs through the end of the season after Todd Haley was fired on Monday. “There were no conditions to this,” Crennel said. “I want to try to be helpful in this situation, and I knew one of the ways I could be helpful was to be the interim coach.” Long considered one of the game’s brightest defensive minds, Crennel has spent the past two seasons as the Chiefs’ defensive coordina-

chance to be a head coach in Cleveland, where he had mixed results in five seasons. He took over a moribund franchise and went 10-22 his first two years, but had the

Browns on the cusp of the playoffs after finishing 10-6 in 2007. Crennel received a contract extension, but the team slipped to 4-12 the following year and Crennel was let go. Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli said Monday that Crennel will be given the opportunity to interview for the full-time job, though he’s by no measure a certainty. Potential candidates could include Rams offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, who worked with Pioli in New England, and Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz, who has rebuffed every overture from the NFL in recent years It’s unclear whether Pioli has even begun to formulate a wish list. “I know the respect Romeo commands in the locker room,” Pioli said. “We talked with Romeo and I think he’s someone we’re definitely going to be talking to.”

VERITAS JUNIOR KRISTEN FINGER (30) TRIES TO KEEP THE BALL against Wichita Homeschool on Tuesday at the Eudora Community Center. Veritas lost, 50-17.

Veritas girls stumble, 50-17 By Corey Thibodeaux cthibodeaux@ljworld.com

Both the girls and boys Veritas Christian School basketball teams showed their youth against Wichita Homeschool on Tuesday night. In the girls match-up, coach Kevin Shelton said visiting Wichita imposed its will by being the aggressor and taking command early, leading to a 50-17 wallop at the Eudora Recreation Center. “Anything they wanted to do, we let them tonight,” Shelton said. “And that’s not how we’ve been playing.” The Eagles (2-4) have had a couple of rough games in a row, and this one was especially disappointing because the coaches and players didn’t think they stood up to what the Warriors were doing. “They played a physical game, and I expected us to play physical back,” Shelton said. “I just didn’t feel that we did that.” In the second and third quarters combined, Veritas was outscored 25-5 and was dominated on the glass. Five players scored for the Eagles: Brittany Rask led the team with five, Madison Bennett and Ellen Phillips had four and Joy Brooks and Kristen Finger added two. The Veritas girls team will play next against Olathe Christian at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday in Eudora.

Wichita Homeschool boys 45, Veritas 36 The Veritas Christian School boys basketball team essentially played just three quarters of Tuesday’s 45-36 loss against Wichita Homeschool. After a dismal all-around second quarter, the Eagles found themselves down 15 at the break. They did come back to score nine straight in the fourth quarter, which brought the deficit to six, but they couldn’t complete the comeback.

“We just dug ourselves too big of a hole to come up all the way out,” Veritas coach Gary Hammer said. The guards had difficulty getting the offense going against Wichita’s pressure defense. In that second quarter, that undid Veritas (3-3), and the Eagles were outscored 18-4, allowing the Warriors to roll off a 16-point run. Veritas’ offense spent more time turning the ball over than trying to shoot with it. Hammer said the youth on a team that has one senior revealed itself many times. “We need to get our underclassmen comfortable out there, and the only way is to experience it,” Hammer said. “It’s like baptism under fire.” Junior Thomas Bachert, who had six points in the game, likened his team’s attitude to that of Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow, who has made a name for himself with miraculous comebacks. “He’s always like, ‘In times of peril, get closer,’” Bachert said. “I think that’s something we’re trying to do – when times are tough, get closer. On another side of it, we’ve got to learn not to get behind.” Senior Elijah Penny led the team with 15 points. Veritas will play Whitefield Academy at 7 p.m. Saturday.

‘Tis the season: A guide to the 35 bowl games Odds Based on the close game they played the first time around, it’s no wonder the BCS championship game between LSU and Alabama had the closest odds among the 35 bowls, opening at 1 point on the Glantz-Culver line and a pick ‘em as of Tuesday. Next closest was 1.5 points: Arkansas State over Northern Illinois in the GoDaddy.com Bowl and Auburn over Virginia in the Chick-fil-A Bowl. The biggest spread? Oklahoma at plus-14 over Iowa in the Insight Bowl. Highest over/under is 74.5 points between Oklahoma State and Stanford in the Fiesta Bowl.

By John Marshall AP College Football Writer

Like it or not, the BCS championship game will be a rematch between LSU and Alabama. Oklahoma State complained it should have had a shot at the top-ranked Tigers, BCS bashers had more fodder for the we-need-aplayoff debate and many fans scrunched up their noses at the thought of another field goal-kicking contest like the previous incarnation of the Game of the Century. The good news, particularly if you’re in the no-rematch camp, is that there are 34 other bowl games with some great players, great matchups and even some interesting nicknames, starting with that rascally Honey Badger in the Bayou. Here’s a rundown of some of the things to look for over the next month or so:

Top games Even if you’re not a fan of LSU and Alabama getting a return engagement in the BCS title game, you HAVE to watch. It is for the national title, after all. But there are plenty of other games worth watching. Fiesta Bowl, Stanford vs. Oklahoma State, Jan. 2, Glendale, Ariz. — If the national championship game were to have an undercard, this could be it. Two great offenses, two great quarterbacks in Andrew Luck and Brandon Weeden — expect lots of yards and points in what has the potential to be the most entertaining bowl of them all. Rose Bowl, Wisconsin vs. Oregon, Jan. 2, Pasadena, Calif. — Speaking of shows, how about Badgers running back Montee Ball and Ducks dynamo LaMichael James trading jukes and touchdowns? Going to be some day on the couch the day after New Year’s. Alamo Bowl, Baylor vs, Washington, Dec. 29, San

AUBURN, RIGHT, KICKS OFF to Oregon to start the 2011 BCS National Championship game at the University of Phoenix Stadium, in this file photo from Jan. 10, in Glendale, Ariz. This season’s BCS championship will be held in New Orleans and will feature LSU and Alabama. Antonio, Texas — Robert Griffin III on one side, Keith Price and Chris Polk on the other, not a lot of defense. Yeah, this is going to be good. Cotton Bowl, Arkansas vs. Kansas State, Jan. 6, Arlington, Texas — Arkansas’ two losses were to LSU and Alabama, K-State’s to the two big Oklahoma schools. All you need to know.

Players To Watch Robert Griffin III, Baylor. The Heisman Trophy? You may have heard of it — and him. Andrew Luck, Stanford. The Cardinal quarterback is the fourth player to be Heisman runner-up in consecutive seasons, a threat to pass or run, the likely No. 1 overall pick in the NFL draft. Tyrann Mathieu, LSU. The Honey Badger has a knack for coming up with big plays at big moments. Now he gets his chance on the big stage. Case Keenum, Houston. The sixth-year senior will leave Houston with his own section in the NCAA record

book. Being relegated to the TicketCity Bowl against Penn State after a late-season loss will likely have him motivated to go out with a big game. Justin Blackmon, Oklahoma State. The All-American is just the second two-time winner of the Biletnikoff Award, given to the nation’s top receiver, and a big-play threat every touch. Trent Richardson, Alabama. The Crimson Tide’s running back won the Doak Walker Award as the nation’s best running back and was third in Heisman voting. Montee Ball, Wisconsin. Montee should have a ball at the Rose Bowl. LaMichael James, Oregon. Give him a seam and he’s gone; a likely Heisman finalist for the second straight season if that elbow hadn’t kept popping out of place.

Bowl Sponsors After a run of dot-coms, food-related companies have been kings of the bowlgame sponsorships recently, and this year is no different

It would have been seven, but former KU commitment Phil Ford fell short academically and spent the 2011 season at Iowa Western Community College. Ford, a 6-foot-6, 335-pound offensive lineman who redshirted the 2011 season, always kept his eye on coming back to Kansas. Now, with his former high school coach involved with the program, Ford’s hopes for a reunion are bigger than ever. “I think he’s gonna do really good,” Ford said of Grunhard. “He’s a really smart coach and, even though he was the head coach, he was always around other positions and would spend extra time working with all of us. He relates really well to everyone, and some of the

BRIEFLY Colo. St. introduces Bama O.C. as coach FORT COLLINS, COLO. — Colorado State introduced Jim McElwain as its new head coach Tuesday. McElwain, Alabama’s offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach, becomes Colorado State’s 20th head coach. “I feel like I am getting in (on the ground floor) of the bold new era, as they put it,” McElwain said. McElwain “And the vision and the passion is here and that’s what it’s all about.” Athletic director Jack Graham said McElwain’s five-year contract includes an annual base salary of $1.35 million. He can earn an additional $150,000 in bonuses.

“I believe Jim McElwain is an outstanding fit for Colorado State,” said Graham. “He has a plan. He can articulate that vision and plan really clearly and engender passion in the people around him.” McElwain replaces Steve Fairchild, who was fired Dec. 4 after going 16-33 in four seasons with the Rams, including three straight 3-9 finishes. McElwain said he would find a role for Sonny Lubick, whom Fairchild replaced. McElwain will return to Alabama to coach in next month’s BCS championship game against LSU.

New UCLA coach Mora ready to work LOS ANGELES — Jim Mora figures he can only fill his knowledge gaps about college football through hard work and repetition. That’s why UCLA’s new coach planned to start recruiting Tuesday night, right after

the Bruins introduced him as the latest savior for their beleaguered program. Mora made no outlandish promises when the former Atlanta Falcons and Seattle Seahawks head coach debuted in WestMora wood. He only vowed to make UCLA fans proud of a football team that hasn’t reached the Rose Bowl in 13 seasons. Mora hasn’t coached college football since a single season at Washington 25 years ago, but UCLA athletic director Dan Guerrero believes he can figure it out in time to compete with the Pac-12’s elite offenses and star-studded coaching staffs. Mora replaces Rick Neuheisel, who went 21-29.

with seven: Tostitos, Beef O’Brady’s, Chick-fil-A, Outback, Little Caesars Pizza, Kraft Fight Hunger and Famous Idaho Potato. OK, so Fight Hunger is more of a cause and the Idaho bowl is sponsored by a spud commission, but this is a loosely based count. Financial companies are right behind with six and the automotive industry pulls in with five. There are also sponsorships from a helicopter company, an aerospace and defense contractor, a department store, a moving company, one that sells blank T-shirts and sweatshirts that can later be screened, and a ticket broker.

Nicknames Every team has players with nicknames. Here’s some of the coolest we could find: Honey Badger, LSU defensive back Tyrann Mathieu. He reportedly didn’t like the ode to the furry and ferocious little beast at first, but it has grown on him.

As a coach, Powlus helped develop former Notre Dame and current Carolina Panthers QB Jimmy Clausen into one of the most prolific passers in Fighting Irish history. In 2009, Clausen was named an All-American after completing a school-record 68 percent of his passes (289for-425) for 3,722 yards and 28 touchdowns with four interceptions. As a player, Powlus was a four-year starter at Notre Dame from 1994-97. He set 20 school records and started 44 games for the Irish. After college, he played three seasons in the NFL and also played one season for the Amsterdam Admirals of NFL Europe.

RG3, Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III. Combination of initials and being the third in a line of Robert Griffins sounds like a cool new line of shoes. Wolf Man, Utah running back John White. Has a tattoo of a wolf on his chest because wolves roll in packs and eat meat to the bone. Sharks, Oklahoma’s defensive backs. Pulled from a Lil Wayne song, quite catchy. Zeus, Alabama’s Dont’a Hightower. A mythologically proportioned linebacker at 6-foot-4, 260 pounds. Moose, Stanford offensive lineman Jonathan Martin. Protector of Andrew Luck’s blindside got the moniker after mauling other kids in Pop Warner. Nuke, Clemson receiver DeAndre Hopkins.

A name given to him by his grandmother.

A native of Berwick, Pa., Powlus graduated from Notre Dame in 1997 with a bachelor’s degree in marketing from the school’s College of Business Administration. Grunhard graduated from Notre Dame in 1990 and was a member of Notre Dame’s 1988 national championship squad. “We have to build a winning tradition at Kansas,” Grunhard said. “They have that winning tradition on the basketball side, and I don’t understand why you can’t find that on the football side. That is our challenge. That is our goal.”

Distances Last bowl season, several teams had the chance to play in their home cities, including SMU, which played the Armed Forces Bowl in its own stadium because TCU’s was being renovated. This year, there won’t be any so-called home games, but there are several teams that won’t have to go very far: LSU in the BCS title game (it’s in New Orleans), Texas A&M in the Meineke Car Care Bowl in Houston, Florida State at the Champs Sports Bowl in Orlando, and Rutgers in the Pinstripe Bowl at Yankee Stadium. Western Michigan also is playing in Detroit, Louisiana-Lafayette in New Orleans, Vanderbilt in Memphis, Tenn., and N.C. State in Charlotte. The longest trip will be Southern Mississippi in the Hawaii Bowl, a distance of (we’re ballparking here) 4,200 miles. Longest kids-in-the-car trip? Illinois at the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl in San Francisco, a distance of just over 2,100 miles. That’s roughly 31 hours with long, horizonrarely-changes sections through the Midwest and Nevada, so good luck if you try that one.

Crist update Weis was scheduled to travel to Notre Dame quarterback Dayne Crist’s home on Tuesday for an in-home visit. Crist, who visited Delaware a couple of days after coming to KU last weekend, will visit Wisconsin on Thursday and Friday, and could make a decision by this weekend. Once he transfers, the 6-foot-4, 235-pound pro-style QB, who will graduate from Notre Dame this month, will have one season of eligibility remaining and will be able to play right away because of NCAA rules that allow athletes to play out their eligibility at another school immediately after graduation, without sitting out.

No. 14 Badgers slip by in-state rivals The Associated Press

No. 14 Wisconsin 60, Wisconsin-Milwaukee 54 MILWAUKEE — Jared Berggren scored 17 points to help Wisconsin fend off a secondhalf surge from in-state rival Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Jordan Taylor had 14 points for Wisconsin (9-2), including a critical 3-pointer with just over 40 seconds left to help put the game away. Ryan Evans scored a careerhigh 16 points for the Badgers, who have won three straight to recover from consecutive losses earlier in the season. Tony Meier scored 15 points, playing a key role in a second-half comeback for Wisconsin-Milwaukee (8-3). Leading 31-20 at halftime, the Badgers pushed their lead to 44-27 on a three-point play by Evans with 15:17 left. But the Panthers went on a 16-1 run that included two 3-pointers, an inside score and a three-point play by Meier, cutting Wisconsin’s lead to 45-43 with 9:27 left. The Panthers later tied the game at 48 on a layup by Meier with 5:19 left. Berggren hit a 3-pointer as the shot clock expired, but Milwaukee’s Ryan Allen answered with a dunk. Taylor then scored inside and later made two free throws, giving the Badgers a 55-50 lead with 3:27 left. Milwaukee’s Kaylon Williams scored, cutting the lead to three with 1:08 left. Taylor then hit a 3-pointer with just over 40 seconds left to put the game away. With the win, Bo Ryan once again came out on top against Milwaukee coach Rob Jeter, his former assistant. Milwaukee was without two starters because of injuries, forward Kyle Kelm and guard Ja’Rob McCallum. Wisconsin had won two straight games coming in, recovering from losses at North Carolina and at home to Marquette by beating UNLV and Wisconsin-Green Bay at home.

their way back into the game, taking a 55-54 lead on Pablo Bertone’s 3-pointer with 9:22 remaining. Mississippi State fought off the rally, with Bost and Hood scoring a combined 24 second-half points on the way to the team’s ninth straight victory. Jalen Steele scored 12 points for the Bulldogs and Renardo Sidney added 10. Raymond Taylor had 20 points for Florida Atlantic (4-6) while Bertone scored 14 and Kore White added 12. Mississippi State (10-1) was playing without two starters — guard Brian Bryant and forward Arnett Moultrie.

BIG 12 MEN

Brown leads Longhorns in rout of Nicholls St. AUSTIN, TEXAS (AP) — J’Covan Brown scored 23 points to lead Texas to a 9340 victory against Nicholls State on Tuesday night. It was Brown’s most points for the Longhorns (8-2) since Nov. 19. The team’s leading scorer, Brown recovered from a five-game stretch in which he averaged 12.2 points per contest. Bryan Hammond had nine points and Trevon Lewis seven for Nicholls State (37), which played its second game in as many days after visiting Louisiana-Monroe on Monday. Brown had 12 of Texas’ first 17 points and finished with 18 in the opening half as the other starters went a combined 3 of 15 from the floor. In a one-minute span, Brown hit an jumper off a screen, converted a fast-break layup, nailed another jumper and finished a three-point play to amass nine points. Jaylen Bond and Sterling Gibbs combined for 18 points off the bench in the first half to help put Texas up 53-30 at intermission.

“Nobody anywhere can question how much it means to him to be out there and how much he wants to play and wants to win,” Self said, “because there’s a lot of people that would say, ‘No, no, no, go ahead and do this (surgery),’ and, ‘I don’t want to risk anything.’ Not that he was risking anything from a medical deal, but he put it in his rear-view mirror and never looked at it again.” Self said Taylor didn’t use his injury as an excuse.

Texas scored 16 of the first 17 points after the break and later went on a 12-3 run over four minutes to put the game out of reach. Nicholls State did not convert a field goal in the second half until Dantrell Thomas sank a jumper with 6:25 to play. The Colonels finished with three field goals in the final 20 minutes, tying a Texas school record for fewest allowed in a half. Bond finished with 12 rebounds and 18 points for his first double-double as a Longhorn.

“That’s what toughness is — if you know something’s going on, and you’re able to put it in your rear-view mirror and not even think about it,” Self said. “He did that, and of course, because of that, we had a pretty good week.” Taylor’s effort Saturday came against one of the top point guards in the country. Ohio State sophomore Aaron Craft posted 11 points, six assists, five rebounds and two steals to go with three turnovers in his team’s 78-67 loss to Kansas. “Here’s what I think, and I could be wrong,” Self said. “I think that Craft is the best defensive guard that we’ll see

all year. I think he’s the best true point guard we’ll see all year. I think he’s as tough as any guard we’ll see all year. I think he’s as smart as any guard that we’ll see all year. And I think Tyshawn Taylor is just as good. “So that’s how I feel about Craft, that he’s terrific, but I think Tyshawn is too. He’s just got to make some better decisions.”

Robinson wins award Kansas forward Thomas Robinson was selected as the Oscar Robertson national player of the week by the U.S. Basketball Writers Association.

As the Big 12 conference player of the week, Robinson was nominated for the weekly award, which is chosen by a representative of the USBWA board of directors. The 6-foot10 Robinson is the first recipient of the award this season. Robinson, a junior from Washington, Robinson D.C., averaged 23.5 points and nine rebounds in victories last week over Long Beach State and Ohio State.

Holiday Clinic The 2011 KU men’s basketball Holiday Clinic will be from 1-3:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 27, at Allen Fieldhouse for boys and girls in second through sixth grades. The annual clinic is $85 and will include instruction, a camp T-shirt, a Junior Jayhawk Basketball, a 2011-12 KU basketball team picture and one GA ticket to KU’s Dec. 29 home game against Howard. There also will be an autograph session afterward. For more information or to register for the camp, go to billselfbasketballcamp. com.

Sullinger still on sidelines for OSU COLUMBUS, OHIO (AP) — Ohio State coach Thad Matta still isn’t sure when injured star forward Jared Sullinger will play next. “It’s the progression we’re trying to take in terms of step by step,” he said of the pace at which Sullinger is being brought back from back spasms that have caused him to sit out the last two games. “As opposed to running the full marathon, we’re going to warm up with a 5K and then get to a 10K.” The 6-foot-9 Sullinger is able to run, jump and shoot. But he still hasn’t been cleared to play when the second-ranked Buckeyes (8-1) host South Carolina-Upstate on Wednesday night. “You know me, I’m a guy that likes to not play guys a lot,” Matta joked. “I don’t know the answer. Hopefully I’ll know more (after Tuesday’s practice). Probably more of the tell-all (will be) in the morning, how he feels.” The Buckeyes suffered their first loss of the season on Saturday at No. 13 Kansas, a 78-67 setback on one of the toughest home courts in the country. Maybe because they at least hung with the Jayhawks for most of the game despite Sullinger’s absence, poll voters kept the Buckeyes in the No. 2 spot. Meanwhile, top-ranked Kentucky — which lost at Indiana on a 3-pointer at the buzzSullinger er — fell two spots to third. Syracuse climbed around Ohio State to the No. 1 position this week. Point guard Aaron Craft said the Buckeyes learned a lot from their first defeat. “Watching the tape, we played hard and we played with some good toughness, it being our first road game,” he said. “But we made mistakes that we don’t normally make. If Jared would have played and we made the same mistakes, they still would have won the game because we didn’t play Ohio State basketball.” Swingman William Buford pointed to how the Buckeyes struggles with shooting led to letdowns at the other end. “We have to learn from mistakes we had in our loss,” he said. “Just valuing every possession, not taking any plays off and continuing to play defense and let our defense lead to our offense. I feel the last game we weren’t hitting shots and it affected our defense. We can’t let that happen.” The Buckeyes, with just one senior (Buford) and one junior (Sullinger’s fill-in, Evan Ravenel) on the roster, travel to play at South Carolina on Saturday. Matta said one thing he has insisted on in the wake of the Kansas loss is that everyone must be responsible for the team’s play and cannot rely on tired excuses. “The message is still being heard loud and clear that we don’t believe we played as well as we could possibly play. Not that we were going to win the basketball game, but the mistakes that we made have got to be corrected,” he said. “There’s a standard that we want to operate by. Just like making the excuse that we’re a really, really young basketball team, or making the excuse that Jared Sullinger didn’t play for us — we can’t do that. We have to accept the responsibility of the actions that we had and they weren’t all as good as they needed to be in order to have a chance to win that game.” Standout freshman LaQuinton Ross, who rejoined the team Sunday after clearing up some academic questions, practiced with the Buckeyes for the first time on Monday. Even with Sullinger possibly out or limited, it is unlikely that Ross will be ready to see much or any action until he gets more accustomed to the playbook and what is expected defensively.

Recipe revisions may yield healthier results Q:

I would like to modify some of my recipes when I’m baking this holiday season to make them healthier. Do you have any recommendations?

Cooking Q&A

A:

The first point to remember when revising recipes is that all changes for modifying recipes are experiments. Some work well. Others are less satisfactory. The following examples show how some ingredients can be reduced or changed to produce a product that is healthier. The decision of whether or not to change a recipe instead of serving it less frequently or in smaller portions is your choice. Reduce sugar by onethird. For example, if a recipe says to use 1 cup of sugar, use 2/3 cup. This change works best when making puddings and custards. In cookies and cakes, try using 1/2 cup sugar per cup of flour. For quick breads and muffins, use 1 tablespoon sugar per cup of flour. To enhance the flavor when sugar is reduced, add vanilla, cinnamon or nutmeg. Reduce fat by one-third. For example, if a recipe calls for 2/3 cup of fat, use 1/3 cup. This method works best in gravies, sauces, puddings, and some cookies. For cakes and quick breads, use 2 tablespoons fat per cup of flour. Fats are not always interchangeable. Oil is 100 percent fat. Margarine is an emulsion containing 80 percent fat and 20 percent water (“lite” margarine-type spreads contain a higher proportion of water). Substituting 1 cup of oil for 1 cup margarine adds more fat than the recipe intended. Consequently, cookies will feel and taste greasy. A well-textured cookie depends on thorough creaming

Oat bran or oatmeal (that has been ground to flour consistency in a food processor or blender) can replace up to one-fourth of the all-purpose flour. For example, if a recipe has 3 cups all-purpose flour, use 3/4 cup oat bran or ground oatmeal and 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour. Bran cereal flour is made by grinding a ready-to-eat cereal such as Bran Buds or 100% Bran in a blender or food processor for 60 to 90 seconds. It can replace up to one-fourth of the all-purpose flour. For example, if a recipe calls for 2 cups all-purpose flour, use 1/2 cup bran flour and 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour. Here are recipes for a pumpkin bread in which the fat has been modified with success. This recipe can also be baked in two mini-loaf pans (check for doneness after 50 minutes).

of the fat and sugar. Oil cannot be creamed, so substituting it for a solid shortening is likely to change both texture and volume. It is possible to substitute a lite margarine-type spread for solid shortening when baking. But it cannot be a direct substitution. Since lite or diet margarines have more water, the amount of liquid in the recipe also must be reduced. Rather than substituting reduced-fat margarines, Pumpkin Bread try using less of the regular margarine. You won’t have to alter the amount of liquid, Modified Fat 1 cup pumpkin and you will save calories. 1/2 cup sugar Omit salt or reduce by 1/3 cup vegetable oil one-half.

Bakers share biscuit secrets

By Judith Evans

St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Watching Lauren Vinciguerra make biscuits is poetry in motion. She pours, mixes, rolls and shapes with sureness and efficiency. When she’s done, just a few minutes after she started, five pounds of flour, a pound of butter, a pound and a half of cream cheese and a half-gallon of buttermilk have been transformed into 126 biscuits filling a sheet pan, ready to go into the oven. As manager of Callie’s Charleston Biscuits, Vinciguerra is used to baking in quantity. Her bakery makes about 80,000 biscuits a month, all by hand. Nathalie Dupree takes a different tack. Her recipes make enough biscuits to mound in a bread basket, not to make a mountain. Instead of buttermilk, she mixes cream and plain yogurt. “The reality is, most people have yogurt in the house more than they have buttermilk,” says Dupree, author with Cynthia Graubart of the new cookbook “Southern Biscuits” (Gibbs Smith, $21.99). Despite the differences, they both make biscuits more by feel than by measure. And both shared their hints and techniques recently at a demonstration for food journalists in Charleston, S.C. So whether you’re making a large batch or just a few, here are tips to turn out light, tasty biscuits.

Most recipes call for cold butter, but Vinciguerra lets it come to room temperature before rubbing it into the flour. Soft butter is easier on your hands, and the biscuits won’t suffer.

 Vinciguerra’s biscuit dough is studded with chunks of cream cheese the size of small peas. “We call this a little insurance — you bite into the biscuit and there’s a little bit of love: the cream cheese.”

 Both bakers recommend using a mixing bowl that’s wider than it is deep.

 Use your hands to mix the flour-butter mixture into the liquid ingredients.

 Dough “wet like lava” makes the lightest biscuits, Dupree says.

Callie’s Charleston Biscuits Yield: 120 biscuits (for 30 biscuits, see note) Melted unsalted butter, to

prepare pans 1 (5-pound) bag White Lily self-rising flour 1 pound salted butter, at cool room temperature 1 1/2 pounds cream cheese 1/2 gallon buttermilk (not nonfat), divided 1. Preheat the oven to 500 degrees. Brush two half-sheet pans or several smaller pans with melted butter. 2. Set aside about 2 cups flour; pour the remaining flour into a large bowl. Cut salted butter into large chunks and add to bowl. With your fingers, mix butter into flour until sandy. When no chunks of butter remain, cut cream cheese into large chunks and add to the bowl. Work the mixture with your hands, pulling the cream cheese into pieces about the size of small peas. 3. Pour in 2 1/2 to 3 cups buttermilk. Use your hand to scrape the flour mixture into the buttermilk, folding and kneading. Add more buttermilk as needed. The dough should be moist and sticky. 4. To clean your hands, rub the dough off with some of the remaining dry flour. With floured hands, scrape the dough from the bowl onto a floured surface. (Unless you have a large surface, roll out dough in three or four batches.) Sprinkle dough with flour, and roll out gently to about 1 inch thick. 5. Flour a 2-inch biscuit cutter, and push straight down into the dough without twisting. (You can twist the cutter gently to remove it.) Arrange biscuits, with sides touching, on pans. 6. Bake, rotating the pan once, until golden, about 15 minutes. 7. Serve immediately or let cool completely, then wrap well and freeze. To reheat frozen biscuits, wrap a few in foil, and bake at in a preheated 450-degree oven for about 20 minutes or until hot. Open the foil and let the tops brown for a few minutes, then serve. Note: To make 30 biscuits, use up to 5 cups flour; 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter; 6 ounces cream cheese; and up to 2 cups buttermilk.

Yogurt And Heavy Cream Biscuits Yield: 12 to 14 (2-inch) biscuits Softened or melted butter 2 1/4 cups self-rising flour, divided (see note) 3/4 cup heavy cream, divided 1/2 cup plain yogurt (not reduced-fat or nonfat)

1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. For biscuits with a soft exterior, select an 8- or 9-inch cake pan, pizza plan or ovenproof skillet. For biscuits with a crisp exterior, select a baking sheet. Brush the pan with butter. 2. Place 2 cups flour in a large bowl, preferably wider than it is deep. Using the back of your hand, make a deep hollow in the center of the flour. Stir together 1/2 cup cream and yogurt; pour into the hollow. Stirring with a rubber spatula or large metal spoon, use broad circular strokes to quickly pull the flour into the liquid. Mix just until the dry ingredients are moistened and the sticky dough begins to pull away from the sides of the bowl. (If the dough is too wet, use more flour when shaping.) 3. Lightly sprinkle a board or other clean surface with some of the remaining flour. Turn the dough out onto the board and sprinkle the top of the dough lightly with flour. With floured hands, fold the dough in half, and pat dough into a 1/3- to 1/2-inch thick round, using a little additional flour only if needed. Flour again and fold the dough in half a second time. If the dough is still clumpy, pat and fold a third time. Pat the dough into a 1/2-inch-thick round for a normal biscuit, 3/4-inch-thick for a tall biscuit, and 1-inch-thick for a giant biscuit. Brush any visible flour from the top. 4. For each biscuit, dip a 2-inch-biscuit cutter into the reserved flour and cut out the biscuits, starting at the outside edge and cutting close together. The scraps may be combined to make additional biscuits, although those biscuits will be tougher. 5. Using a metal spatula if necessary, move the biscuits to the pan or baking sheet. Bake the biscuits on the top rack of the oven for 10 to 14 minutes or until light golden brown. After 6 minutes, rotate the pan from front to back and check to see if the bottoms are browning too quickly. If so, slide a baking sheet underneath to add insulation. 6. Lightly brush the top of the biscuits with butter. Invert the biscuits onto a plate and lift off the pan; let cool slightly. Serve hot, right side up. Note: Use a Southern brand of self-rising flour, such as White Lily, or make your own: For each cup, sift together 1/2 cup cake flour, 1/2 cup all-purpose flour, 1/2 to 1 teaspoon salt and 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder. Whisk lightly or stir with a fork before measuring.

Stir in the nuts or raisins. Pour into a greased loaf pan. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for about 1 hour, or until a wooden toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.

The tiramisu cookie

By Alison Ladman For The Associated Press

Editor’s note: The Associated Press is offering a series to celebrate the holidays with 12 days of cookies, each inspired by a different classic dessert. Tiramisu is an Italian dessert made from espressosoaked ladyfinger cookies, a mascarpone cream, a sprinkling of shaved chocolate and a dusting of cocoa powder. For our cookies we opted to make a crumbly espresso-flavored almond cookie. After baking, we topped the cookies with a mascarpone cream and sprinkled them with chocolate.

Chicken pot pie reimagined as appetizer By J.M. Hirsch Associated Press Food Editor

It’s chicken pot pie, only smaller, easier, faster and more party-friendly. I took this classic winter comfort food and reimagined it as a holiday party appetizer. Because when facing down party after party of relatives and dullards (you know who I’m talking about), a bite or two of comfort can help get you through the night. To keep this simple, I started by using preformed pastry shells made from phyllo dough. These are widely available in the grocer’s freezer section. And because they are precooked, all you need to do is fill and heat them. About that filling. Because the cups are small, the fillf ing needs to be simple. So I stuck with carrots, peas and chicken. For the creamy base, I opted for cream cheese (use low-fat if you prefer) thinned with just a bit of egg white. To get a jump on things, make the filling up to a day in advance and refrigerate. The cups can be filled a few hours before the party, then quickly popped in and out of the oven as needed (bake them a dozen or so at a time so you always have a fresh batch coming).

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 10B

These things were just a little more than $6 apiece. I got the motherload of basil, oregano and rosemary for under $20. It has been a really fun time coming up with ways to use all that beautiful herbiage. It’s no secret that I am a fan of the chicken thigh. I find chicken breasts to be dry, tasteless and almost useless except for fried chicken fingers. Thighs are inexpensive, tasty and versatile. The trifecta, in my kitchen. I knew I had herbs to use up, and I knew I was tired of Sunday gravy. What could I do with all of the chicken that was thawed in my refrigerator?

Fruitcake is a love-it-orhate-it holiday tradition. But these cookies are everything a fruitcake should be. Studded with all manner of dried and candied fruit (you can easily substitute your favorites), these cookies are a chewy, spicy delight that’ll be sure to make a fruitcake lover out of even the skeptics.

But of course! Pasta — with a cream sauce. And what makes pasta fancier? Tortellini! What I ended up churning out was a lovely weeknight dish, elegant enough for a dinner party. And, it only took about 30 minutes to make. But no one would know it, for it is so fancy and delicious. First, I cut four boneless chicken thighs into smallish strips and gave them a liberal salt and peppering. Then I put them on a cookie sheet coated with cooking spray and popped them in a 350-degree oven. You could cook the chicken in a saute pan, but I think this is easier and tastier. The roasting will help it retain juice and cook in flavor, and it’s one less step for the cook. This way, instead of pushing chicken around a skillet, you can focus directly on your sauce.

Start to finish: 1 hour (15 minutes active) Makes about 40 cookies 1 cup sugar 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature 1 teaspoon cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine the sugar, butter, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, allspice, salt and baking soda. Beat until light and fluffy. Add the egg and orange zest, then beat to combine. Add the orange juice and half of the flour, then mix, scraping down the bowl as needed to ensure even mixing. Add the remaining flour and mix to thoroughly incorporate. Stir in the candied peel, dates, cherries, apricots and pecans.

Strawberry shortcake cookie By Alison Ladman

Start to finish: 45 minutes (15 minutes active), plus cooling Servings: 16 For the bars: 1/2 cup granulated sugar 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted 2 eggs

1/2 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 cup strawberry jam For the icing: 1 cup powdered sugar 2 teaspoons vanilla extract 2 tablespoons milk or cream Heat the oven to 350 F. Line a 9-by-9-inch baking pan with foil, allowing a couple inches of excess to extend past the sides of the pan. This will help for removing the bars from the pan. In a medium bowl, whisk together the granulated sugar and butter. Add the eggs, one at a time. Add the salt and vanilla and stir to combine. Stir in the flour and baking soda until well mixed. Spread the mixture into the prepared pan. Spoon the strawberry jam over the dough. Drag a knife through the dough and jam, swirling the jam into the dough. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden and a

wooden pick comes out clean. Allow to cool in the pan. To make the icing, in a small bowl whisk together the powdered sugar, vanilla and milk or cream. Drizzle the icing over the surface of the cooled bars. Allow the icing to set up. Using the foil as handles, lift the bars out of the pan. Peel off the foil and cut the bar into 16 pieces.

I began by making a thickening agent. Melt about 2 tablespoons of butter in a saute pan and add 2 heaping tablespoons of flour. Whisk it around until it’s all combined, and then add a cup of chicken stock. Then you have to turn up your heat to medium-high, and whisk madly until all the lumps are gone. This will get rather thick rather quickly, and then you can add another cup of chicken stock. Whisk like crazy again. Next, I added a cup of Half and Half, but milk or even heavy cream would work, depending on what you have lingering in your refrigerator. Whisk again, let it get bubbly and start to thicken. Here is where I add the first round of “flavor.” A hearty pinch of kosher salt (maybe a teaspoon — don’t over salt),

a few good cranks of cracked black pepper, and half a cup of white wine went into the pot. Then I added some garlic cloves. I happened to have some garlic that I cooked thoroughly during an oil-infusion process the weekend before, so mine were soft and delicious already, but whole fresh cloves will work too, as long as you cook your sauce long enough to soften them. Or, if you are averse to large hunks of garlic in your sauce, mince them up. Whatever works for you is fine. But I have to admit that the precooked and preserved garlic was an unexpected and welcome addition to our dish. Next, I added half a cup of crumbled goat cheese and a handful of sundried tomatoes. Mine had been packed in oil so I rinsed them thor-

oughly before I put them in; I didn’t want the additional oil in my sauce. Now is a good time to set your pasta water boiling. Frozen tortellini only takes about two minutes to cook, which is also a bonus in my book. While the cheese melted and the tomatoes warmed, I occasionally stirred, and I pulled the chicken from the oven. Into the boiling water went my bag of tortellini, and two minutes later I was ready to plate. First, a large pile of tortellini went onto the center of a large plate. Then I dished the garlic/white wine/goat cheese/ sundried tomato sauce over the top. Next, I sprinkled on some fresh basil I had cut in a chiffonade (about three large leaves per plate), and then I

laid on several pieces of chicken on the top. This dish is Christmasy, beautiful, and elegant. When you say words like garlic confit, white wine, and goat cheese, people start to marvel. Little do they have to know the goat cheese was $3 a log at Costco and the basil was almost free. They don’t have to know the white wine came from a box or that the dish only took half an hour from start to finish. They don’t have to know you buy your chicken thighs in bulk from Checker’s or that your sundried tomatoes came off the salad bar as an afterthought. All your guests need to see is a beautiful plate full of red and green and flavor overflowing.

For The Associated Press

The simplicity of strawberry shortcake is what makes it such a winning dessert. A biscuit (or cake), fresh strawberries and whipped cream are all it takes. We stuck to the basics to make a cakelike cookie bar, swirled with strawberry jam and drizzled with vanilla ice cream. Be sure not to overbake these bars to avoid drying them out.

Executive chef puts premium on freshness, creativity “

By Sarah Henning

sarah@lawrence.com

As a teen, it’s highly unlikely you’ll get to rub elbows with rock stars and get a chance to do your dream job at the same time. But that’s exactly how Molly Myers started off her career as a chef. “I started catering at an early age with a friend of my father’s and she catered all the rock concerts that came through Kansas City — at every venue, and in Lawrence and in Salina and in Wichita,” Myers says. “I worked with her for two years on that and then I took it over and worked another eight years.” Her favorite performer to work with? Frank Sinatra (“Very cordial, very appreciative, very simple.”) One of her most memorable meals? A vegetarian birthday dish she made for the members of Brooks & Dunn and their families (“(They) could not believe that they were getting more than cheese and fruit and crisp vegetables.”) But it wasn’t all glamour, of course; cooking for a rotating cache of stars was a lot of work. Myers and her crew would have to be on call for a week at a time, preparing meals at any hour, while sleeping in a Winnebago and “shopping” in a semi truck full of food on site. “You had your breakfast, lunch and dinner, you had your dressing rooms and then, sometimes when they’d have after-parties at the hotel, which they expected you to be there (and do),” she says.

Top of the chart It was exhausting, even for a young chef, but served as quite the springboard for Myers, who has parlayed that zero-to-60 start into a career as an executive chef. Her current gig is at The Oread, 1200 Oread Ave. It’s a job that’s still rarely inhabited by a woman in the male-dominated world of the culinary arts — something Myers knows all too well. “Being a female in this industry is ... I’ve had issues in the past, where I’ve been stabbed in the back pretty hard,” she says.

MYERS, WHO GOT HER START in the food business by catering rock concerts, has risen to the top of her profession. As executive chef at The Oread, she plans menus around seasonal fare in order to offer the freshest food. She shops at local farmers’ markets and works with several area producers. “Sabotaging food, the whole bit. Pouring vinegar in it to make it go bad because they wanted the position.” And thus, she values her staff at The Oread — people she either hand-picked or culled from the old staff. A 35-year veteran of professional cooking, she knew exactly what she wanted in her staff. For the first three months she had daily meetings with her sous chefs to get on the same page. From those beginnings she forged a relationship unlike any she’d had in her culinary career — a tight-knit bond with secondin-command Sean Jolly. “Now, it’s like right foot, left foot walking the same line. I’ll start a process and then we’ll get into it and we’re both right there,” says Myers of Jolly, who was already on the staff at The Oread when she arrived. “That ‘marriage’ like that is hard to find between a chef and a sous chef. So, once you have it ... I could not do it without him, that’s for sure.”

Creative spark Jolly says Myers’ trust and top-notch experience — which includes a culinary degree she received after working for a decade in the industry — has really taught him not only how to work the business end, but also has revived his creativity. “She’s incredibly creative and she allows other people to be creative,” Jolly says. “Not that we’re doing anything too wild and exotic here, but she lets us kind of breathe and it’s a little bit of fresh air back here to get somebody new and somebody that has that much experience and is that creative.” That creativity is on display each day in a menu Myers dubs “our playground” — the series of nightly specials for the hotel’s high-end restaurant, Five 21. The menu is flexible, giving the chefs more latitude than just creating a fish special or a chicken special night in and night out. Rather, its premise is much more open, divided into “dishes to savor,” “dishes from the garden,” “dishes from the water,” “dishes from the land” and “sweet dishes.” Myers got the idea for her flexible evening menu after checking out the produce each Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday at the Lawrence Farmers’ Market. She wanted a way to showcase the very best of each shopping trip, without being confined to something set. She started building relationships with local farms once the market opened in May and now has an extensive list of local producers with whom she prefers to work spring, summer and fall. “I would just walk through the market and just purchase as an individual, rather than going up and grandstanding, ‘I’m the chef at the Oread.’ I don’t do that,” she says. Later, if she liked what she found, she’d contact the farms for a larger order, though she says, “I like going and picking and sorting through, versus just having something dropped off. I enjoy the interaction and watching the people shop and not knowing who we are.” Included on her seasonal menus are Goddard Farms, Wakarusa Valley Farms, Backyard

We are a ‘made from scratch’ kitchen. All of our sauces are made from scratch. They’re not packaged. We use the freshest ingredients we can find ... . It makes all the difference in the world.” — Oread Executive Chef Molly Myers Produce, La Ferme du Bonheur, Pendleton’s Country Market, Sundance Emu Ranch, Rocky Hills Elk Ranch, Tomato Allie, Blossom Trail Bee Ranch, Lulu’s Garden and Pome on the Range. Using local ingredients works well into the style Myers has cultivated over her years in the business — a fusion of “across the board” cuisine made with the freshest, seasonal ingredients and always, always from scratch. “We are a ‘made from scratch’ kitchen,” Myers says, proudly. “All of our sauces are made from scratch. They’re not packaged. We use the freshest ingredients we can find and make our own reductions, we make our own veal stock and then start building up from there. It makes all the difference in the world.” Of course, the from-scratch nature of the kitchen, plus her constant hunt for the freshest ingredients means Myers is working day in and day out in the kitchen. She, her husband and 19-year-old daughter (who works with Myers at The Oread) still have a home in Prairie Village, not that she’s seen it much recently. Until they find a suitable small farm around Lawrence, Myers has been commuting or crashing at a studio apartment she maintains in Lawrence. It’s a grueling schedule, but one totally worth it to Myers, who says there’s nothing she’d rather be doing than cooking each day. “It’s in your blood, there’s no two ways about it,” she says of her need to be in the kitchen. “It’s not just something you take on, it runs through your veins.” — Staff writer Sarah Henning can be reached at 832-7187.

ou might want to take away my woman card for saying this, but I do not like alfredo sauce. I do not like it from a jar, or in a restaurant, or even made by my own hand. I don’t know why — maybe it’s too salty or too heavy or maybe I just got sick of it in high school when I thought it was fancy and ordered it at every possible opportunity. I’m not saying I can’t eat it. I can, and I will. It’s just that I don’t crave it. I don’t seek it out, and I don’t make it at home anymore. But I do like an occasional departure from Sunday Gravy, and am constantly looking for ways to make a cream sauce that doesn’t feel like a heart attack on a plate or come across as one-dimensional and boring. Recently, I made a trip to Restaurant Depot with a friend who is a member. This is not your average Costco, friends. Not just anyone with 50 bucks and a desire to sample frozen foods can get a membership. This place is reserved for restaurant owners, and it’s full of amazing things that are not as commercial as Costco’s items. But, people, it’s awesome. Stuff is really inexpensive. The most impressive part of my haul that day was three clamshells of fresh herbs. And when I say clamshell, I’m talking about the oversized one like you get the giant salad in at the grocery store salad bar. It was a ginormous amount of herbs. It was enough rosemary that, as one of my friends said, “I could make a bed with that stuff and roll around in it.” Please see FORK, page 9B

person, but would you want your kids in her classroom? I wouldn’t. Today my friend posted on Facebook that she is worried about the upcoming evaluations. I didn’t call the Board of Ed about her, but I still wonder whether I should. My intent is not to get her fired. Rather, it is to get her into an English refresher course. It would only benefit her students’ education, and I think that’s the anniesmailbox@comcast.net most important thing. — Spell Check in New York ask how the situation can be Dear New York: Unforremedied so all of you can tunately, despite your best have a warmer relationship. We hope it helps. Dear Annie: I am “Spell Check Is Your Friend.” I wrote about a college friend who is a special-ed teacher with poor English skills. I was stunned at the responses. It seems most people feel that as long as a teacher is a nice person, it doesn’t matter whether she is qualified to do the job. I am not spiteful or jealous. I am simply concerned about the children who are learning improperly. And although they are special-ed kids, they are not babies. They are 5th and 6th graders. Trust me, I’m not talking about a typo here and there. I’m talking about endless run-on sentences, no knowledge of homonyms or punctuation, and repeat misspellings of basic common words. Yes, she is a very nice

‘‘Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2011” (8:30 p.m., ABC) has the stale predictability of something that has been kicking around since February. Seriously, Simon Cowell? He could have been on this list in 2002, back when “American Idol” was generating a lot more buzz than “X Factor” ever has or likely will. And while I’m always amused to see Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Eric Stonestreet from “Modern Family,” their inclusion seems like a shameless plug for Walters’ network. Why Derek Jeter and not Albert Pujols? Why Katy Perry and not Lady Gaga? At least these choices spark some argument. You could argue that Pippa Middleton came into some folks’ consciousness this past spring when she looked rather pretty at the royal wedding. But if her chief claim to fame — make that “fascinating” fame — is being somebody’s sister, then she qualified for that role some years back. And Donald Trump. Does anybody need to hear another syllable from this vain, vulgar serial bankrupt? His knack for transparent self-promotion drove most Republican presidential candidates to RSVP a “no thank you” to his “debate” invitation. Good for them. Barbara Walters should show as much good taste and good sense. Don’t get me started on NBC’s groveling attitude toward “The Donald.” The network should have fired Trump and canceled his sclerotic “Apprentice” the second he associated himself with the racist “birther” movement. He has a First Amendment right to say stupid things, but NBC and its sponsors have no obligation to be associated with a jerk. ESPN cut its ties with Hank Williams Jr. just three days after he engaged in deranged jeremiads comparing the president to Hitler. And “Monday Night Football” has not suffered for it. The contrast in actions only reminds us that ESPN is a successful, well-run network and NBC is not. ‘‘Fascinating” shows like this make Walters, a pioneering journalist who has sat down with world leaders and recently interviewed Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad, seem like just another uninspired hack, intent on promoting reality television exhibitionists. Leave that to Jay Leno. Seriously, if the choice comes down to retirement versus another interview with a Kardashian, Walters should choose retirement. That would be a fascinating move.

Dear Annie: My husband and I have noticed that his sister’s husband has been rather cool to us for quite some time. We can barely get a civil hello from him at family events, yet he is warm and friendly to others. To the best of our knowledge, we have not done or said anything that would warrant the cold shoulder. My husband and I have many friends and are wellrespected in our community. We have tried not to let his attitude bother us, but it hurts. We live in the same community and attend the same church, so avoiding him is not an option. He recently was a no-show at a family gathering at our home. My husband mentioned this to another relative and was told that it was because of me. I was dumbfounded. I have no clue why he dislikes me. We have never argued or had an unpleasant incident. I would apologize in a minute if I only knew what for. What can I do? — Clueless Dear Clueless: It’s possible that your brother-in-law misinterpreted something that happened involving you, and the only way to clear it up is to find out what occurred.
