Hundreds of students created their own books, then received a free hardback copy from Studentreasures Publishing in Topeka. The purpose of the program is to encourage creativity while reinforcing basic written communication skills.

Book program boosts creativity For these students, though, it was an even bigger thrill because they got to share the experience with all of their classmates during an assembly Tuesday morning when all the books arrived. “We’re going to spend a good amount of time today just reading each other’s books and looking at them,” said Erica Seals, the third-grade teacher who

coordinated the project. The books were printed and bound by Studentreasures Publishing, a Topekabased company that seems to have found a unique niche in the world of children’s literature. Chad Zimmerman, CEO of the company, said the idea is to give every student a free copy of his or her own book.

“The only thing we ask is that they let parents know that they can buy reprints,” he said. “So the first copy of the books, what you see the kids walking away with, those are all free. .... And it turns out we get enough parents interested in buying reprints of the books that it’s a pretty good business.” Please see BOOKS, page 2A

Fraternity chapter suspended after animal cruelty alleged By Shaun Hittle

The Beta Theta Pi national organization has suspended the Kansas University chapter “indefinitely” following allegations of animal cruelty at a party at the fraternity Friday night. “We were a little shocked by the accounts that are being shared,” said Martin Cobb, spokesman for the Beta Theta Pi national organization.

At KU, the national organization, as well as the KU Interfraternity Council, are responsible for investigating such cases and taking action, said Jill Jess, KU spokeswoman. “Behavior such as that reported is reprehensible and is not what KU would expect from its students,” said Jess in a written statement. Jack Esberg, a KU student and spokesman for the Interfraternity Council, declined comment until the conclusion of the investigation.

It will be the new summer pastime of 2013: watching and wondering whether the main intersection leading to Kansas University will be open by the time students start arriving for the school year. Lawrence city commissioners at their meeting Tuesday stood by a November 2011 decision to close the portions of Bob Billings Parkway/15th Street for several hundred feet east and west of Iowa Street while crews in the area rebuild the road. Commissioners agreed to close the portion of the road from May 20 to as late as Aug. 16, despite hearing from about 10 neighbors and businesses who said the road closure would severely affect their businesses or daily lives. “This is the time of year that new residents are picking the places they go to shop,” said Carrie Warden, an owner of The Scone Lady’s Coffee Shop, 3300 Bob Billings Parkway. “If Please see CITY, page 2A

Police chief hears public feedback on camera policy By Ian Cummings

Some citizens concerned that Big Brother may be coming to downtown Lawrence got their chance to speak their minds and ask questions Tuesday. At a meeting Tuesday night, Lawrence Police Chief Tarik Khatib took notes on possible revisions to a policy on downtown surveillance cameras before he submits the plan to the City Commission. Twelve citizens attended the meeting at the Carnegie Building, 200 W. Ninth St., to ask questions about the scope and cost of the department’s plan to install video cameras along intersections on Massachusetts Street in downtown Lawrence. The meeting followed a public forum in September, called by the local chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union, to ask whether the cameras Please see CAMERAS, page 2A

The plan calls for up to six cameras, paid for with $47,000 in grant money sought by the police department and the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office. Khatib said the cameras would not usually be watched by police on a daily basis and might only be activated during nighttime hours when more incidents occur. Policy requires that the video remain confidential and encrypted, and erased after seven days unless it is evidence in an active investigation. Khatib said the cameras could help prevent and

solve robberies, rapes and assaults, and would also be helpful in managing large crowds downtown. Critics of the plan, including Gary Brunk, executive director of the ACLU for Kansas and Western Missouri, said other cities that have installed such cameras found the maintenance costs ballooned over time and have seen the cameras used to monitor law-abiding political activists. He said such programs tend to expand. The policy, as Khatib noted at the meeting, directed the police department to list the locations of the cameras and their purpose on its website, and to post signage near them downtown. It would prohibit actively focusing the cameras on people without some reasonable suspicion, which could not include race, gender or other classifications

protected by law. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I understand people are nervous about the Big Brother aspect of it,â&#x20AC;? Khatib said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not trying to track people.â&#x20AC;? The cameras would be able to zoom, pan and tilt, Khatib said, but the department will seek cameras without facial recognition software, automated tracking or infrared or Xray technology, which the policy also prohibits. The meeting did raise some questions that Khatib said he would have to research before finishing the policy, such as how much of the information about, and collected by, the cameras would be public record. He also said he would provide more details about what type of request other law enforcement, including state and federal agencies, would have to submit to access video from the system.

like that,â&#x20AC;? she said. Kindergarten, first- and second-grade classes also participated in the project, Seals said, although they wrote single â&#x20AC;&#x153;classâ&#x20AC;? books that contained shorter works from each of the students. In third grade, though, each of the students wrote their own work. Some wrote poems. Others wrote about their families. And some wrote their own works of fiction, starting with a prompt that helped them get past that initial phase of asking, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gee, what should I write about?â&#x20AC;? For example, one of the prompts was about seeing a woman on a bus who tries to stop the student and ask a question. Seals said it was interesting to see the different directions students would go from there. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One student kind of had a creative ending; it started out with the woman talking to them and trying to get their attention, and it ended up

they lost their cellphone, which seems kind of silly, but through the end of the story it was really quite creative for that student who came up with lots of good ideas.â&#x20AC;? At this point, it may be hard to tell who among the students might develop into the next best-selling author, but Seals said there are at least a few prospects in the group. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A couple of students really put forth the effort,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The students knew the effort they put in was going to be the effort they got out of it. So the ones who really put forth an effort had lots of color on their books, lots of neat writing and using proper language and sentence structure.â&#x20AC;?

unanimously rejected pleas to keep the road open during the project. Commissioners were told by the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s public works director that the change in plans at this late stage would likely delay the start of the project by four months. In addition, construction work would happen at a slower pace, and the project almost certainly would not be completed before the winter season forced construction work to halt. That means the project would not be finished until the spring of 2014. The project will be one of the more significant road projects undertaken in recent years. The city,

Task force leader calls 65 percent threshold arbitrary By Scott Rothschild

MEMBERS OF THE VETERANS OF FOREIGN WARS POST 852 WOMENâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S AUXILIARY, from left, Jenny Stowe, Marilyn Grant, auxiliary president Charlene Gibbens and Betty Schrader wrap gifts Tuesday at the post for 11 children at the Lawrence Community Shelter. The VFW post and the menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s auxiliary adopted the children for the holiday season through the shelterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Holiday Adopt-a-Family program.

TOPEKA â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The 65 percent solution is a problem. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the opinion of the Ken Willard, chairman of the Governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s School Efficiency Task Force. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our general belief is the 65 percent number is a bit arbitrary,â&#x20AC;? Willard told legislators Tuesday. Gov. Sam Brownback formed the task force in September, saying that the vast majority of public school districts in Kansas failed to spend at least 65 percent of their state funding on class-

Officials from a fivecounty region around the Kansas City metropolitan area agreed Tuesday that there are many higher priorities in their long-range transportation plan than building an â&#x20AC;&#x153;outer loopâ&#x20AC;? highway on the southern and western fringes of Johnson County. But at the strong urging of Johnson County officials, they agreed to

leave the project on their wish list. That was the consensus after the final meeting of a stakeholder planning group that has been meeting for about the last four years to develop a long-range plan for highways and corridors on the Kansas side of the metro area. The group met in Olathe to finalize its recommendations, which will be forwarded to Gov. Sam Brownback early next year. During the last four

years, the group has studied dozens of proposals for new roads and expanded corridors with an eye toward directing development in the region, relieving traffic congestion and promoting economic development. But when officials from the Kansas Department of Transportation scored each of the proposals â&#x20AC;&#x201D; factoring in such variables as cost, need for the project and potential economic ben-

efit â&#x20AC;&#x201D; most segments of the so-called Outer Loop proposal received the lowest rankings. A preliminary report approved in August did not recommend the project be funded. But the project gained new life in recent weeks when the Johnson County Commission sent a letter pleading for it to remain on the list of possible options. Brownback later endorsed the idea, Please see LOOP, page 4A

room instruction. Willard said that after several task force meetings, it became evident that the percentage of classroom instruction depended on what was counted as classroom instruction. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are a lot of things normal people would think are included in instruction that are not included in that definition at the present time,â&#x20AC;? he said. For instance, he said, if a speech therapist were needed to help a student, that should be counted as

In a parting shot, a majority of a legislative committee Tuesday recommended an increase in school funding, but not before the chairman declared the meeting adjourned. At the end of the Legislative Educational Planning Committee, Sen. John Vratil, R-Leawood, started to make a motion to increase school funding to $4,492 in base state

aid per student. Such an increase would cost $440 million. B u t Committee ChairHuebert man Steve Huebert, R-Valley Center, cut Vratil off, saying the meeting was adjourned and walked out. Two other members, Reps. Mitch Holmes, R-St. Please see FUNDING, page 4A

County commissioners to review Schools process for heritage grants


By Peter Hancock

Douglas County commissioners will be asked this week to approve a process for distributing $325,000 set aside in the budget to help fund natural and cultural heritage conservation projects in the county. Commissioners meet at 4 p.m. today at the County Courthouse, 1100 Massachusetts St. The Heritage Conservation Council is proposing to structure the 2013 grant program the same as it was in 2012. That would mean 55 percent of the funds would be available for â&#x20AC;&#x153;majorâ&#x20AC;? requests of at least $105,000. Thirty percent of the funds would be earmarked for â&#x20AC;&#x153;targetâ&#x20AC;? projects where the requested amount is less than $105,000. Under the proposed process, applicants would have until March 15 to submit requests for funding. Presentations would


saying it ought to remain a topic of serious discussion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The letter basically states that it should be considered as a suggested strategy,â&#x20AC;? said Penny Potoak Ferguson, deputy county manager in Johnson County. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our desire is not to have it taken off the list for future consideration.â&#x20AC;? While there are no specific diagrams for such a highway, proposals have called for a road that would run outside the Interstate 435 loop, from near the Tonganoxie interchange on Interstate 70 south to near Stilwell, and then west along the Johnson-Miami County line toward Missouri. The full length of that single project is estimated to cost $2 billion. Johnson County officials point to two future developments that could have a big impact on traffic and other development in that area: the new BNSF intermodal facility under construction near Stilwell,

be made to the council in late March. That would be followed by a review period, with the council making its formal recommendations to the County Commission by April 24. Commissioners will also receive a status update of the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sustainability Initiatives. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a program the county established in 2010 to fund projects that improve energy efficiency and lower utility costs in public buildings throughout the county. One of the first projects funded through the program involved energy efficiency improvements at the Joint Law Enforcement Center. Officials say that has saved the county more than $100,000 in utility costs this year alone. Upcoming projects include energy retrofits for the county courthouse, LED lights for the parking lot adjoining South Park, and Web-programmable thermostats for the Dougand the eventual redevelopment of the former Sunflower Army Ammunition Plant south of DeSoto. KDOT officials said even if the road were built, work probably would not begin for at least another 10 to 20 years, or even longer. Still, they said, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to have a clear idea of what projects are in the long-range plan because those plans affect the value of real estate along any proposed corridor and can influence future commercial or residential development. Kise Randall of Sunflower Redevelopment, a partnership that currently owns the former ammunition plant property, said it also makes a difference what kind of road planners are intending. For example, a boulevard or parkway with stoplights and intersections draws a much different mix of development along the edges from a limited access highway or freeway. Johnson County officials have said they would prefer a freeway-type road, but one that would use as much existing right of way as possible. Douglas County Com-

classroom instruction, but it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. He also said that school districts experiencing fast growth may have trouble hitting that 65 percent threshold because a larger portion of their budget is spent on capital improvements. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of our recommendations will be to redefine what that number is. If we are going to have a number, it should have some meaning,â&#x20AC;? he said. The task force is expected to give Brownback a set of recommendations to consider for the 2013 legislative session, which starts on Jan. 14. In addition, Willard said the task force will recommend that the Legislature fund public schools on a two-year

las County Fairgrounds. In other business, the commission will:

 Hold a public hearing on proposed budget amendments for the ambulance, road and bridge, employee benefits, special alcohol programs and grants funds.

 Consider authorizing software and hardware upgrades to the 911 phone system.

 Consider approval to consolidate all subscriber radio equipment for the county under a master service and maintenance agreement.

 Consider approval of the 2013 service and maintenance contracts for Douglas County Emergency Communications.

said Schodorf, who was defeated in the Republican Party primary and wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be returning for the session. The efficiency task force has been under fire for, at first, not having any educators on the panel, and then not making time to hear testimony from teachers. Democrats had said the task force was appointed by Brownback to find fault with school spending and justify cuts. Willard and Brownback have denied those accusations. Willard said he has visited a number of schools in the past three months, and said some of the task force recommendations are based on the best practices at the schools. â&#x20AC;&#x153; There is a lot of great work going on in schools,â&#x20AC;? he said.

ing that was to hit $4,492 in base state aid per student in the 200910 school year. But b e f o r e Ballard that level was reached, the Legislature started cutting base state aid as Kansas hit the recession. Now base state aid is $3,838 per student. Vratilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s motion was to return funding to the level the state had promised earlier. Vratil is retiring from

the Legislature. Also voting for the motion were Sens. Jean Schodorf, R-Wichita, Francisco Ruth Teichman, R-Stafford, and Bob Marshall, R-Fort Scott. Those three were defeated by more conservative Republicans in the GOP primary in August. Rep. Eber Phelps, D-Hays, also voted for the motion. He was defeated in last monthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s general election.

Some members of the Legislative Educational Planning Committee, however, voiced skepticism. State Sen. Jean Schodorf, R-Wichita, noted that the Legislature approved a threeyear school funding plan after the Kansas Supreme Court ruled the school finance system unconstitutional, but when the recession hit that plan was abandoned, and cuts were made to schools. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The three-year plan that we passed and implemented partially came to a big halt because we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the funding.

Leslie Jackson, retired, Overland Park â&#x20AC;&#x153;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait. I hope it snows. I want to make a snowman.â&#x20AC;?

Steve Christianson, retired, Prairie Village â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like winter weather. Just the feeling of the cold. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really nice when it snows.â&#x20AC;?

years. The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for Douglas County and other parts of northeast and northcentral Kansas, warning of the possibility of several inches of snow and strong winds late tonight and early Thursday morning. Jared Leighton, a meteorologist at the NWS Topeka office, said the good news is that the worst of the storm around Lawrence and Douglas County should come between about midnight and 6 a.m. Thursday. The advice for that period of time: If at all possible, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t venture out from your home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There could be some pretty tumultuous conditions: whiteouts, perhaps blizzardlike conditions,â&#x20AC;? Leighton said. He said Lawrencearea residents could expect about 1 to 3 inches of snow, which by itself wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be too much of a problem. But when combined with 20- to 30-mph winds, with gusts up to 40, things could get pretty dangerous overnight. Visibility could be low. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Anybody thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s out in the elements at that time will be in some peril,â&#x20AC;? Leighton said. The storm appears more severe than anything that occurred last winter, which was unusually mild, he said. It wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t compare with the blizzards that

â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Jared Leighton, meteorologist at the National Weather Serviceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Topeka office

came through during the winter of 2010-11, though. Mark Thiel, assistant public works director for the city of Lawrence, said that might be his biggest concern for drivers Thursday morning after the storm: that they wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t remember to take proper caution while driving in winter weather since itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been so long. He hopes drivers remember to set aside some extra time for their commute Thursday morning, check news reports before heading out, drive slowly and watch out for icy surfaces that may appear to be just wet. The powerful winds expected might drop the windchill into the low teens Thursday morning, Thiel said, which could allow for some snow accumulation on the roads. He said drivers could probably expect roads to be wet and slushy during their morning commute Thursday, and bridges and overpasses may be especially dangerous. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Those are probably road surfaces that will become slickest the quickâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; Kansas University reporter Matt Erickest,â&#x20AC;? Thiel said. He said city crews son can be reached at 832-6388. Follow him at would be watching to see

money. In the Nov. 25 robbery, no weapon was displayed. In the Nov. 26 attempt, the man put his hand under his shirt, giving the impression he had a weapon. Employees in that attempt refused to give the man money, and he fled. Cisneros, who police say was in Lawrence visiting relatives, is scheduled for trial April 24 and is free on $10,000 bond. Depending on someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s criminal history, a robbery conviction could result in penalties ranging from probation to 136 months in prison.

A 35-year-old Maryland man charged with robbing two Lawrence convenience stores in November waived his preliminary hearing Tuesday and pleaded not guilty. Daniel C. Cisneros, of Elkton, Md., is charged with a Nov. 25 robbery at Zarco 66 convenience, 1500 E. 23rd St., as well as a Nov. 26 attempted robbery at Kwik Shop, 1611 E. 23rd St. Witnesses reported similar behaviors by the suspect in both cases, in which a white man wearing a hat with the West Virginia University logo confronted employees and demanded

Yes. Dogs must be on leashes shorter than 6 feet and under control when outside of their fences, with the exception of dogs wearing electronic collars, according to the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pet ordinance on the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website. Owners must also clean up their animalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s waste.

if they can deploy trucks to pretreat roads with a liquid salt solution in the hours before the storm. But forecasts right now call for rain immediately before, he said, and pretreating streets while it rains can actually cause them to be slicker later on. Snowfall should be finished by 6 a.m., Leighton said, though the stiff winds may continue for a bit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to drive anywhere early Thursday morning, I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t,â&#x20AC;? Leighton said. The Kansas Highway Patrol on Tuesday released reminders for drivers as winter weather begins. Among them: When conditions are bad, slow down and turn your headlights on and your cruise control off; replace wiper blades, check your tires and fluid levels; stock your car with an emergency kit; allow for a safe following distance; and, of course, always wear your seat belt. The city of Lawrence reminded residents last week of the sidewalk snow removal ordinance in place since 2008. All property owners have 48 hours after snow or ice stops falling to clear off all sidewalks adjacent to their properties. Property owners cited will be fined $20 plus court costs. To report violations, residents can call the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Code Enforcement Division at 785-832-7700.

Kansas exhumes bodies of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;In Cold Bloodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; killers The fragments were collected at the request of a Sarasota County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s detective, who ONLINE: Check out past has been trying to determine whether Richard stories about the â&#x20AC;&#x153;In Cold Hickock and Perry Smith were responsible for Bloodâ&#x20AC;? case at the deaths of Cliff and Christine Walker and LANSING â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The bodies their two young children on Dec. 19, 1959, in of the two men executed for the 1959 murders of Osprey, Fla. By John Hanna

Associated Press

a Kansas family that became infamous in Truman Capoteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s true-crime book â&#x20AC;&#x153;In Cold Bloodâ&#x20AC;? were exhumed Tuesday in an effort to solve slayings of a Florida family killed weeks later. Kyle Smith, deputy director of the Kansas Bureau of Investigation, said bone fragments were collected from the skeletal remains of Richard Hickock and Perry S m i t h , Hickock who were hanged for the murders of Herb and Bonnie Clutter and their children in Holcomb, Smith Kan., on Nov. 15, 1959. The fragments were collected at the request of a Sarasota County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s detective, who has been trying to determine whether Hickock and Smith were responsible for the deaths of Cliff and Christine Walker and their two young children on Dec. 19, 1959, in their home in Osprey, about four hours northwest of Miami near Sarasota. Smith and Hickock fled to Florida after the Clutter murders. Hickock and Perry Smith have been considered suspects in the Walker slayings since 1960, and Kyle Smith said Florida officials have expressed an interest several times over the decades in renewing the investigation.

DNA testing now has advanced enough that older material can be analyzed more effectively, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We can get smaller samples, more decayed samples, and still get matches,â&#x20AC;? Kyle Smith said during a news conference at the city hall in Lansing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They could have tried this 20 years ago and maybe used up what biological samples they had and gotten nothing from it.â&#x20AC;? Sarasota County detective Kimberly McGath said she requested the exhumation to obtain DNA that could be compared with that from semen found on Christine Walkerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s underwear. All the Walkers were shot. Christine Walker also was beaten and raped. Their 2-year-old daughter also was drowned in a bathtub. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our interest is providing closure to the Walker family,â&#x20AC;? Kyle Smith said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Obviously, where these perpetrators are dead, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not going to result in any prosecution.â&#x20AC;? He added: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Obviously, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of historical interest as well.â&#x20AC;? Hickock and Perry Smith fled to Florida in a stolen car after the Clutter murders. They checked out of a Miami Beach motel on Dec. 19, the day the Walker family was killed, and at some point that day bought items at a Sarasota department store. Witnesses have said they spoke with Smith and Hickock in Tallahassee on Dec. 21. McGath said the Walkers were considering buying a 1956 Chevy Bel Air, the kind of car Smith and Hickock were driving

through Florida. McGath thinks the Walkers met with the men because of the car. Smith and Hickock were later arrested in Las Vegas. A polygraph test cleared them of the Walker murders, but a polygraph expert said in 1987 that such tests were worthless in the early 1960s. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sometimes you just have to wait for the technology to catch up to the need,â&#x20AC;? Kyle Smith said. Hickock and Perry Smith are buried on a gently sloping hill at the Mount Muncie Cemetery in Lansing, where the state of Kansas interred executed criminals when their families didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t claim the bodies. The cemetery regularly draws visitors who have read Capoteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s book or have seen a movie about him or the case. The exhumation began shortly after sunrise Tuesday and ended by noon. Bone samples were collected, and the bodies reburied, Kyle Smith said. Reporters and other members of the public werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t invited to view the work because investigators were treating the graves as crime scenes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It went about as well as it could have,â&#x20AC;? cemetery manager Gene Kirby said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There were no surprises.â&#x20AC;? The KBI will take DNA from what was bone marrow, Kyle Smith said. He said one of its labs will do the analysis behind higher-priority tests for criminal cases about to go to trial, and he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sure how long it would take.

Investors turn against gun makers MINNEAPOLIS (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Investors shunned some of the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest gun makers Tuesday, putting up for sale the manufacturer of the Bushmaster semiautomatic rifle used in the Connecticut school shooting and worrying that the attack could soon bring stricter gun laws. Stocks of other gun companies fell, and Dickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sporting Goods Inc. said it would temporarily stop sales of military-style firearms. In Washington, some former opponents of gun control signaled that they may change their position, potentially giving stricter gun laws their best chance of passage in years. The most notable rejection of the gun industry came when the private-equity firm Cerberus Capital Management announced it would sell the maker of the rifle used in the massacre, which it called a â&#x20AC;&#x153;watershed event.â&#x20AC;? The shooting â&#x20AC;&#x153;raised the national debate on gun control to an unprecedented level,â&#x20AC;? Cerberus said in a news release. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are investors, not statesmen or policy makers.â&#x20AC;? In an acknowledgment of the changing political climate, the National Rifle Association promised â&#x20AC;&#x153;to offer meaningful contributions to help make sure this never

House and Senate negotiators reached agreement Tuesday on a $633 billion defense bill that would tighten sanctions on Iran, increase security at diplomatic missions worldwide after the deadly Sept. 11 raid in Libya and presses the military on possible options to end the bloodshed in Syria. The bill would authorize $528 billion for the Defense Departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s base budget, $17 billion for defense and nuclear programs in the Energy Department and $88.5 billion for the war in Afghanistan. The top Republicans and Democrats on the Armed Services committees announced completion of the bill at a Capitol Hill news conference in which they highlighted the rare instance of bipartisanship.

Fiscal talks hit a lull with Boehnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Plan Bâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; By Andrew Taylor Associated Press

WASHINGTON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Just two weeks from an economythreatening deadline, fiscal cliff talks hit a lull Tuesday as House Speaker John Boehner announced that Republicans would also march ahead with their own tax plan on a separate track from the one heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been pur- Boehner suing with President Barack Obama. The White House and leading congressional Democrats immediately rejected Boehnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Plan B,â&#x20AC;? which would extend soon-to-expire Bush-era tax cuts for everyone making less than $1 million but would not address huge across-the-board spending cuts that are set to strike the Pentagon and domestic programs next year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone should understand Boehnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposal will not pass the Senate,â&#x20AC;? said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev. Boehnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s surprise move came after significant progress over the past several days in talks with Obama â&#x20AC;&#x201D; talks that produced movement on tax rate hikes that have proven deeply unsettling to GOP conservatives and

on cuts to Social Security benefits that have incensed liberal Democrats. Just Monday, Obama offered concessions, including a plan to raise top tax rates on households earning more than $400,000 instead of the $250,000 threshold he had campaigned on. And the two sides had inched closer on the total amount of tax revenue required to seal the agreement. Obama now would settle for $1.2 trillion over the coming decade while Boehner is offering $1 trillion. By contrast, protecting income below $1 million from a hike in the top tax rate from 35 percent to 39.6 percent would raise only $269 billion over the coming decade. But the outlines of a possible Obama-Boehner agreement appeared to have shaky support at best from Boehnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leadership team and outright opposition from key Republicans like vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan, RWis., a House GOP aide said. That aide spoke only on condition of anonymity because the aide was not authorized to discuss the situation publicly. Though Obama spokesman Jay Carney had nothing good to say about Boehnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new option, he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The president is willing to continue to work with Republicansâ&#x20AC;? toward a broader agreement.

Pediatric alliance Kansas City hospitals are joining forces to provide improved pediatric treatment services.


ongratulations to those at Kansas University Hospital, the KU Medical Center and Kansas City’s Children’s Mercy Hospital for working out a plan to join forces to develop an integrated and superior pediatric program. All parties are winners in this plan: the patients, doctors, medical staffs and the three health care institutions. Also, the excellence of this plan makes Kansas City a true national leader in all phases of pediatric care. Years ago, perhaps 20 to 30 years ago, representatives of Children’s Mercy, KU Medical Center and KU Hospital, which at that time was part of the state’s medical center, visited about a joint association, but for one reason or another, nothing was accomplished. Several years ago a group of Kansas City leaders, aided by several KU officials, tried to jam through a plan that would weaken the now totally independent KU Hospital and, to a degree, the KU Medical Center, in order to strengthen St. Luke’s Hospital in Kansas City, Mo. The plan was a one-way street, which fortunately was killed, although there are those who would like to revive it. The KU-Children’s Mercy arrangement is far different with the various representatives and institutions putting together a plan that is good for all parties, particularly the patients. Health care already is a giant national topic of concern and it is likely to become an even more discussed, frustrating, puzzling and debated topic. The availability of quality health care, costs, insurance, government control, rationing, etc., all will capture greater public attention. The Mercy-KU plan is a major step in improving and advancing pediatric care and eliminating costly duplication of efforts. Once again, congratulations to those who engineered the visionary, commonsense and mutually beneficial plan.

Syrian chemical weapon threat grows WASHINGTON — Reports from inside two Syrian chemical weapons facilities offer some chilling new evidence that President Bashar al-Assad’s regime developed special vehicles last year for moving and mixing the weapons — and an unconfirmed allegation that Lebanese allies of the regime, presumably in Hezbollah, may have been trained 11 months ago in the weapons’ use. A Syrian source provided a detailed account in a telephone conversation over the weekend, drawing on intelligence provided to him by a Syrian defector who worked inside the chemical weapons network. The source was speaking from an Arab country outside Syria where he has taken refuge. The conversation was arranged by the Syrian Support Group, an organization in Washington that speaks for moderate elements of the opposition Free Syrian Army. This information comes with a caveat: The Syrian sources want to alert the U.S. to dangers there partly in the hope of encouraging greater American involvement with the opposition. For some historical context, readers should recall the Iraqi defector known as “Curveball,” who made allegations about Iraqi chemical weapons a decade ago that bolstered the case for war — but turned out to be fabrications. Seeking corroboration for the Syrian report, I checked it with knowledgeable, independent sources, who confirmed some of the details.

This information comes with a caveat: The Syrian sources want to alert the U.S. to dangers there partly in the hope of encouraging greater American involvement with the opposition.” With that support, I want to share it with readers. According to the defector’s account, two senior Syrian officers moved about 100 kilograms of chemical weapons materials from a secret military base in January 2012. The base was in a village called Nasiriyah, about 50 to 60 kilometers northeast of Damascus. The officers placed the chemicals in a civilian vehicle and were seen driving across a bridge in the direction of the highway toward Lebanon, the Syrian source said. Two days later, he continued, two men with Lebanese accents arrived at the Nasiriyah base and were given training in how to combine and activate the chemicals, as well as the proper safety precautions in handling them.

Rumors about possible movement of Syrian chemical weapons have been spreading recently in the Middle East. But U.S. officials don’t appear to have any evidence that chemical weapons have actually been moved anywhere outside Syria. The Syrian source also described construction of special trucks, which could transport and mix the weapons, at a workshop in the Dummar suburb northwest of Damascus. This workshop was part of a network of secret research facilities known in Arabic as the “Bohous,” the source said. Construction of these mobile laboratories began in the summer of 2011, a few months after revolutionaries began threatening Assad’s regime. In the Dummar workshop, the Syrian source said, technicians constructed a mobile lab that could combine and activate so-called “binary” chemical weapons agents. These mobile mixers were constructed inside Mercedes or Volvo trucks that appeared, from the outside, to be similar to refrigerator trucks. Inside were storage tanks, pipes and a motor to drive the mixing machinery, the defector said. The defector estimated that 10 to 15 of these mobile laboratories had been constructed. An independent source said these numbers were high, but he confirmed that the Syrians do have mobile labs. Drawing on the defector’s reports, the Syrian opposition quietly gave Lebanese officials

a description of the trucks about six week ago, so that they could monitor whether the vehicles were crossing into Lebanon with chemical weapons on board. Since then, none have apparently been seen near the border. The Nasiriyah facility is near the town of Qalamoon. People who worked at the base spoke often of visits there by Maher al-Assad, the president’s brother, who commands the elite military unit known as the Republican Guard. He is thought to be the military leader of the savage campaign against Syrians rebels, which has led to the deaths of an estimated 40,000 people over the past 20 months. An independent source confirmed that both the Dummar and Nasiriyah facilities mentioned by the defector are, indeed, part of the Syrian chemical weapons network. What should we make of these reports? First, the Syrian chemical warfare capability may be even more dangerous than people had thought, because the weapons can be moved to other locations and mixed en route. And, second, there’s a significant risk of proliferation to other groups, such as Hezbollah, which could pose a global terrorist threat. This new information underlines that the war in Syria contains seeds of a wider and more dangerous conflict. The warning light is flashing: Handle urgently, and with care.


OLD HOME TOWN From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Dec. 19, 1912: “Ranking second only to the last day of school in importance in the YEARS minds of the boys and girls of the AGO schools is the Friday before the IN 1912 Christmas holidays. For on that day the ‘kiddies’ get their first taste of the festivities of the Christmas season. And that day is tomorrow. In practically every room in the city schools tomorrow afternoon there will be fitting programs given by the children of the various grades consisting of Christmas songs, stories and recitations. What a big event this is for the school boys and girls. ... Over at the Central School the rooms have all been decorated in the customary holly and mistletoe. The different rooms have been decorated by the students themselves and it is the result of their work that the rooms are looking so nice.


Congress turns down volume Just when I’d given up hope that the present Congress could accomplish anything, I have discovered that our representatives in Washington have actually enacted legislation that will have a positive effect on my life and the lives of anyone who watches television. On Dec. 13, 2011, Congress passed the “Commercial Advertisement Loudness Mitigation Act” known by the acronym “CALM Act” to regulate the volume of television commercials. The act was signed into law with a one-year delay so that it became effective last week, on Dec. 13. The CALM Act actually does something to make our everyday lives more pleasant. I cannot remember all of the times I have been watching a television show when, suddenly, a commercial comes blasting out at several times the volume of the show itself. I tend to be a little hard of hearing so I often will turn up the volume to hear a particular show or film. But just when I have adjusted the volume so that I can hear what is being said a commercial comes on so loud that I literally jump out of my chair. It has been something that has annoyed me for years. The intent behind the

Mike Hoeflich

The CALM Act makes it illegal for advertisers to broadcast commercials at volumes higher than the programs that the commercials accompany…”

change in volume is obvious: Advertisers want to make sure that viewers pay close attention to their message. The way some do this is by setting the volume of the commercial far higher than that of the show it accompanies. Certainly, in my case, they achieve their goal. The commercials are often so loud that I have to grab the remote and quickly adjust the volume down for fear of becoming totally deaf. And, of course, once the show comes back on, I have to adjust the volume again in order to hear it. I

know that some folks simply record everything they want to watch and then fast forward past the commercials but sometimes I like to watch my favorite programs when they are broadcast. The CALM Act makes it illegal for advertisers to broadcast commercials at volumes higher than the programs that the commercials accompany and empowers the Federal Communications Commission to take action against advertisers who do not comply with the act. Viewers who discover commercials that do not comply can now complain to the FCC and, if the FCC finds that advertisers have, in fact, broadcast commercials at higher volumes than programs, it can take action. I know that the CALM Act is not nearly so important as many other pieces of legislation that Congress has before it. It will not solve the nation’s fiscal problems nor reform the health system, but it will certainly make television viewing more pleasant. Score one for Congress! — Mike Hoeflich, a distinguished professor in the Kansas University School of Law, writes a regular column for the JournalWorld.

To the editor: That’s it. That’s enough. Twenty dead children including a 6-year-old with 11 bullet wounds is way more than enough. The NRA likes to say that guns don’t kill people, criminals kill people. In recent years it has become obvious that it takes a mentally deranged person with assault weapons and high capacity magazines to kill mass numbers of people. These weapons are not necessary for hunting or target practice or self protection. They are only designed for and necessary for killing large numbers of people. Any NRA member who doesn’t get on the phone or email and demand that the NRA cease opposition to limits on assault weapons and high capacity magazines is a gutless wonder and an accessory to the future murder of children. Dr. Steven Bruner, Lawrence

Tax calculations To the editor: Got to thinking about the position that President Obama is taking on raising taxes on the top 2 percent, those making over $250,000. That is adjusted gross income. In other words, that is the amount on which an individual would pay tax. That means that the family would deduct the interest on both of their homes, medical expenses, charities, home office, telephones for business, country club dues when used to entertain clients, half of their entertainment meals, etc. What was left would be the $250,000. Total income could easily be $400,000-plus. You also have to remember that stock dividends are not taxed. When I divided the number $250,000 by 12, I came to the realization that it equals what a person making $10/hour makes in a year, $20,830. If the tax rate increase should go into effect, then the 3 percent increase would cost the lowest end high earner, i.e., $250,000, $625/month. Would a person pulling down $20,000 a month, even be aware that they didn’t have an extra $600 to spend each month? Makes one wonder what these people in Congress can be seriously and honestly thinking about: pride, bullheadedness, or concern that their big donors will not fund their next trip to Washington.

PLAYERS ON THE KANSAS UNIVERSITY BENCH EXPLODE AFTER A SECOND-HALF DUNK by teammate Rio Adams against Richmond. KU routed the Spiders, 87-59, on Tuesday in Allen Fieldhouse.

Kansas, Withey squish Spiders By Gary Bedore

Scot Pollard, who played 11 years in the NBA, believes another Kansas University center from San Diego will have a similarly successful career in the pros. “Absolutely,” the 6-foot-11 Pollard said Tuesday night, asked if KU senior Jeff Withey has the ability to play in the NBA, starting next season. Pollard, a TV color ana-

lyst, spoke after Kansas’ 87-59 rout of Richmond — a game Tuesday in Allen Fieldhouse in which Withey blocked four shots and passed Pollard for fifth place on KU’s all-time rejection list. The 7-foot Withey also had 17 points off 7-of-9 shooting with a season-high 13 rebounds. “As we know the last few years, Jayhawks have been getting drafted and not playing a lot because their height has been exposed. Jeff’s

height cannot be exposed. He’s 7-feet tall. He’s a legit ’footer,’” Pollard said. “In the NBA, sometimes all you need to be as a 7-footer is a guy who can block shots and rebound. As long as Jeff can keep that mind-set he has now, not worry about scoring but blocking shots and rebounding first, then the scoring comes.” Withey had four more highlight-reel blocks versus the Spiders, increasing his career total to 219, one more

than Pollard and just 39 off Greg Ostertag’s school-record total of 258. Withey’s two most spectacular plays Tuesday, however, were steals. He had two thefts early in the second half and passed ahead to Travis Releford both times for assists on the break. “Coach said it was going to happen. He told me to run through it (and steal the ball up top). The first time Please see KANSAS, page 4B

Buckeyes should give KU real test

KANSAS CENTER JEFF WITHEY (5) GOES UP FOR A DUNK over Richmond forward Derrick Williams during the second half.

One last tomato can laid to waste in front of an adoring crowd, the Kansas University basketball team looked ready for the challenge of stepping into the ring with another highly ranked national-championship contender. In playing outrageously good defense in the first half and sharing the ball so unselfishly all the way, Kansas had no trouble burying Richmond, 87-59, Tuesday night in Allen Fieldhouse. Afterward, nobody on the

Tom Keegan

winning side had any illusions as to the enormity of the next challenge. “We’ve done a good job holding serve at home and playing with energy,”

Kansas coach Bill Self said. “Now we’ll find out how good we are, though. Let’s be serious: The season starts Saturday.” In Columbus, the main event features No. 9 Kansas against a No. 7 Buckeyes squad seeking to avenge losses from a season ago in Allen Fieldhouse and in the Final Four in New Orleans, where giant rats ran around the press room like they owned the place. Senior point guard Elijah Johnson, who left 16,300

tongues hanging with a wicked cross-over dribble that resulted in his setting up freshman Perry Ellis for an easy bucket, knows Kansas can’t prove itself without getting the job done away from the nation’s most significant homecourt advantage. “I feel like that’s the only thing we haven’t done,” Johnson said. “We’ve played on a neutral floor. We’ve played at home. We’ve Please see KEEGAN, page 5B

Jayhawk recruit Combs top-ranked juco prospect By Matt Tait

What already was perceived by many as a solid Kansas University recruiting class received a little extra validation Tuesday, when ESPN released its list of the top 100 junior-college football prospects in the country. Six of those players have

committed to KU, including top-ranked Marquel Combs. Combs, a four-star defensive tackle from Pierce Community College in Woodland Hills, Calif., is one of 8-to-12 members of Kansas University’s 2013 recruiting class expected to slap their signatures on letters of intent today on the first day of the midyear transfer signing period.

Combs, who has served as an unofficial recruiting liaison for the Jayhawks since announcing his decision last week, is one of two four-star prospects in KU’s current class, which continues to climb the rankings list nationally. As of Tuesday night, KU’s class, which features 23 total commitments and 16 from juco prospects, was ranked

31st by That puts the Jayhawks fifth in the 10-team Big 12 Conference, ahead of West Virginia, Iowa State, TCU, Kansas State and Texas Tech. There remains a ways to go in the recruiting process, with the second signing period still six weeks away. So it’s possible that the rankings could change drastically. At the rate coach Charlie

Weis and his staff are going, it’s possible the Jayhawks could climb even higher, especially considering that the No. 6 player on ESPN’s juco 100, Trinity Valley C.C. offensive tackle Josiah St. John, 6-foot-6, 305 pounds, has KU listed among his finalists.

Jets bench Sanchez in favor of McElroy NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Mark Sanchez no longer is the New York Jetsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; franchise quarterback. He might not even be the backup. Rex Ryan decided to bench Sanchez on Tuesday in favor of Greg McElroy after the fourthyear quarterback had another miserable performance in a 1410 loss at Tennessee on Monday

night that eliminated New York from playoff contention. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best for our team, and for this game,â&#x20AC;? Ryan said during a conference call. So, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be McElroy under center for his first NFL start when the Jets (6-8) play the San Diego Chargers at home Sunday. Ryan hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t decided whether Sanchez or Tim Tebow â&#x20AC;&#x201D; listed as the

Belcher probe complete KANSAS CITY, MO. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher was apparently worried he would lose his baby and money to his longtime girlfriend before fatally shooting her and killing himself, according to newly released police reports. Belcher also complained about Kasandra Perkins, the mother of the coupleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 3-monthold daughter, in conversations and text messages sent to a woman he was dating on the side, the reports show. In one text message sent in late October or early November, Belcher wrote he â&#x20AC;&#x153;would shootâ&#x20AC;? Perkins â&#x20AC;&#x153;if she didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t leave him alone.â&#x20AC;? The girlfriend told police that Belcher said â&#x20AC;&#x153;his childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mother threatened to take all his money and his child if they split upâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;knew exactly how to press his buttons and make him angry.â&#x20AC;? Belcher shot Perkins multiple times in their home on Dec. 1 and then drove to team headquarters, where he killed himself in front of his coach and general manager after telling them he â&#x20AC;&#x153;wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t able to get enough help.â&#x20AC;? The Jackson County prosecutorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office reviewed the police reports before closing the case Friday. It formally ruled the deaths of Belcher, 25, and Perkins, 22, a murder-suicide, prosecutorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office spokesman Mike Mansur said Tuesday. The reports provide new details about the final days and hours leading to the tragedy. The night before the killings, Belcher went to a club with the woman he was dating while Perkins attended a concert with her friends, the reports said. A friend of Perkins said the couple argued around 1 a.m., about Perkins being out late, although it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t clear whether the argument happened in person or on the phone. The police report, which doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mention this dispute, said that after Belcher kissed his girlfriend and she went inside her apartment, he fell asleep in his car. About two hours later, police roused Belcher after someone called 911 to report his idling Bentley as suspicious. The report said Belcher was legally parked and didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t smell of alcohol, but officers asked if he could stay inside the apartment for the night. Belcher tried to call the girlfriend, but she didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t discover the missed calls until the next morning and didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hear him at her door. Two women who were up late invited Belcher to wait inside their apartment after he explained his plight. After taking him to a gas station to buy a sports drink, they gave him a pillow and blanket and he slept on the couch for a couple hours, leaving at 6:45 a.m. so he could make it to a team meeting planned for later that morning. Upon arriving at the home he shared with Perkins, the couple began arguing over â&#x20AC;&#x153;one or both of them going out as in to a club or partying,â&#x20AC;? said Belcherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mother, Cheryl Shepherd, who had moved in with them about two weeks earlier. When Shepherd heard multiple gunshots, she ran to the bedroom and saw Belcher kneeling next to Perkinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; body, saying he was sorry. After kissing Perkins, his baby daughter and his mother, Belcher drove to Arrowhead Stadium, breaking off his Bentleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rear-view mirror on the way, the police report said.

No. 2 quarterback â&#x20AC;&#x201D; will be the backup. While Sanchez blew the second chance Ryan gave him a few weeks ago, Tebow was leapfrogged by a third-stringer, fueling speculation that the team has little confidence in him as a quarterback. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have to look at what I think is the best for the team

and not necessarily the individual,â&#x20AC;? Ryan said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll say this about Tim and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always said it: I know he wants to help this team be successful in the worst way and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no doubt about that.â&#x20AC;? Sanchez threw four interceptions Monday night and wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t able to handle a low snap with the game on the line.

TEXAS A&M QUARTERBACK JOHNNY MANZIEL (2) celebrates after a review confirms an A&M touchdown Nov. 18 against Alabama in Tuscaloosa, Ala. Manziel was named Tuesday as the Associated Press player of the year in college football.

A&Mâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Manziel voted AP player of year Johnny Manziel ran for almost 1,700 yards and 30 touchdowns as a dual-threat quarterback his senior year of high school at Kerrville Tivy. Who would have thought heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be even more impressive at Texas A&M when pitted against the defenses of the Southeastern Conference? On Tuesday, Manziel picked up another major award for his spectacular debut season. He was voted the Associated Press Player of the Year. As with the Heisman Trophy and Davey Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien Award that Manziel already won, the QB nicknamed Johnny Football is the first freshman to collect the AP award. Manzielâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 31 votes were more than twice that of second place finisher Manti Teâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;o, Notre Dameâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s standout linebacker. He is the third straight Heisman-winning quarterback to receive the honor, following Robert Griffin III and Cam Newton. Manziel erased initial doubts about his ability when he ran for 60 yards and a score in his first game against Florida. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I knew I could run the ball, I did it a lot in high school,â&#x20AC;? Manziel said in an interview with the AP. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is just something that you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get a chance to see in the spring. Quarterbacks arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t live in the spring. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get to tackle. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get to evade some of the sacks that you would in normal game situations. So I feel like when I was able to avoid getting tackled, it opened some peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eyes a little bit more.â&#x20AC;? The 6-foot-1 Manziel threw for 3,419 yards and 24 touchdowns and ran for 1,181 yards and 19 more scores to help the Aggies win 10 games for the first time since 1998 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and in their inaugural SEC year, too. Ryan Tannehill, Manzielâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s predecessor now with the Dolphins after being drafted eighth overall this season, saw promise from the young quarterback last year when he was red-shirted. But even he is surprised at how quickly things came together for Manziel. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty wild. I always thought he had that playmaking ability, that something special where if somebody came free, he can make something exciting happen,â&#x20AC;? Tannehill said.


Ex-No. 1 pick Bush sentenced PUNTA GORDA, FLA. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Matt Bush, a former top overall major-league draft pick, has been sentenced to four years and three months in prison for a drunken driving hit-and-run crash in Florida. As part of a deal, the 27-year-old pleaded no contest Tuesday to driving under the influence with serious bodily injury. Six other counts in the March crash were dropped. Because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s his third DUI, Bush will also lose his license for 10 years. He has already spent nine months in jail.


FNL coach Gaines resigns LUBBOCK, TEXAS â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Gary Gaines, the 63-year-old high school coach at the center of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Friday Night Lightsâ&#x20AC;? book and film, has left the Odessa Permian sideline for the last time. Gaines said he resigned from the West Texas football program he helped make famous. He said he doubts heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll coach again but wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sure whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next for him.


Sporting KC introduces Bieler KANSAS CITY, KAN. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Sporting Kansas City has introduced Argentine forward Claudio Bieler as a designated player, adding a talented goal-scorer from Ecuador to its roster. The 28-year-old Bieler was acquired by the MLS club from LDU Quito for an undisclosed transfer fee after scoring 57 goals in 110 games in Ecuadorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top professional league. Nicknamed â&#x20AC;&#x153;El Taca,â&#x20AC;? Bieler had 20 goals in 34 games this past season. Sporting KC manager Peter Vermes said after losing in the MLS Cup playoffs that he would seek to add a talented striker this offseason. Vermes said Tuesday that Bieler had proven to be a â&#x20AC;&#x153;very consistent goal scorer.â&#x20AC;?

Baldwin sweeps EHS J-W Staff Reports

WISCONSIN PLAYERS CELEBRATE AFTER DEFEATING NEBRASKA, 70-31, to win the Big Ten championship game on Dec. 1 in Indianapolis. Wisconsin earned the league’s bid to the Rose Bowl, where it will face Stanford on New Year’s Day.

All’s not rosy for Big Ten teams The Associated Press

The Big Ten spent much of the year as a national punch line. It might get worse during bowl season. The Big Ten could only fill seven of its eight predetermined bowl slots — and each of those bowlbound teams is currently an underdog. From the five-loss Wisconsin team that still wound up in the Rose Bowl to the 6-6 Purdue squad that fired its coach, the beleaguered Big Ten isn’t expected to do much of anything in the postseason. The league went just 1-6 in bowl games in 2008. According to odds makers, things could go even worse in 2012. “I’m not apologizing for us to go to the Rose Bowl with five losses,” Wisconsin athletic director Barry Alvarez said during his press conference to announce he would coach the Badgers in that game. “I didn’t have anything to do with two teams being ineligible in our division. That allowed us to play in that championship game, and we soundly defeated the champion from the other side.” That they did, thumping Nebraska 70-31. Still, the current symbol for the league’s plight has to be Badgers (8-5, 4-4 Big Ten). They finished four games behind Ohio State and one behind Penn State in the Leaders Division. But the Buckeyes and Nittany Lions weren’t eligible for the Big Ten title game, and the Badgers made the most of their lucky break. Wisconsin is currently in upheaval after Bret Bielema stunned nearly

everyone by bolting for Arkansas a few weeks ago. Alvarez will lead the Badgers in their third straight Rose Bowl, where they’re about a touchdown underdog to 11-2 Stanford. Afterward, he’ll resume his search for a new coach. “It will be a great challenge for us, but I think it’s a good matchup. I think it’s a great bowl matchup. The game hasn’t changed,” Alvarez said. The way Wisconsin manhandled the Huskers also took some buzz out of the Capital One Bowl. Nebraska (10-3, 7-1) fell to the game in Orlando following their loss to the Badgers. The Huskers face Georgia (11-2) in a matchup that would have looked like good on paper — in mid-November. While the Bulldogs were within about 5 yards of beating Alabama and earning a shot at Notre Dame in the BCS national championship, the Huskers were embarrassed by the five-loss Badgers a few hours later. Georgia is a 10-point favorite over the seemingly reeling Huskers. “They’re resilient,” Nebraska coach Bo Pelini said. “They look forward to going out and playing again. They were hurting, but you know what, they are grown men. You move on. That’s what you have to do. We’ll be ready to go.” Perhaps no bowl matchup epitomizes the current gap between the Big Ten and the powerhouse Big 12 and SEC more than Purdue-Oklahoma State in the Heart of Dallas Bowl. Even though the Boilermakers fired coach Danny Hope, they’re still on a three-game winning streak. Yet the Cowboys,

who at 7-5 are just a game better than Purdue, are an 18-point favorite. That’s the biggest line of the postseason — bigger than even Florida State over MAC champs Northern Illinois in the Orange Bowl. Minnesota (6-6, 2-6) is also a heavy underdog in its matchup with Texas Tech in the Meineke Car Care Bowl, even though the Red Raiders (7-5) lost coach Tommy Tuberville to Cincinnati. Even with all those apparent mismatches, going 0-7 is probably a long shot for the Big Ten. Michigan (8-4, 6-2) and South Carolina should make for an entertaining Outback Bowl. Few would be surprised if the Wolverines won their second straight bowl game under coach Brady Hoke. Northwestern (9-3, 5-3) can reach the 10-win plateau for just the third time with a win over Mississippi State in the Gator Bowl. The Wildcats, who were perhaps the only Big Ten team that can claim they were underrated in 2012, are just a 2-point underdog. “Our guys are hungry. This is an opportunity for 10 wins for this ball club and to potentially be ranked in the top 15 in the country. That’s an unbelievable foundation of success that this senior class will have laid. Ten wins makes a good season great,” Northwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald said. Michigan State and TCU are also a virtual toss-up in the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl. The Spartans were one of the nation’s most disappointing teams, but five of their six losses were by four points or less.

Finnin is believed to have a final list of KU, Marshall, Maryland, Oklahoma, Nebraska and West Virginia.

tackle Ty McKinney, who committed to KU in February, was expected to arrive in time for the 2012 season but ran into academic snags and was forced to stay away. McKinney, 6-4, 310, is expected to sign his letter of intent today and arrive on campus in time for the spring semester.

Spiders awed by KU seniors By Matt Tait

Following Saturday’s 19-point home victory over Stetson, Richmond men’s basketball coach Chris Mooney began scouting for Tuesday’s road game at Kansas University and was caught off guard by what he saw. “I couldn’t believe they started four seniors,” Mooney said. “I don’t know of any other of the highest major teams that have so many senior players.” Tuesday night, during an 87-59 drubbing at Allen Fieldhouse, Mooney and his team took a figurative punch from each of those KU seniors. The biggest blows were thrown by center Jeff Withey, who dominated on both ends and finished with 17 points, 13 rebounds and four blocks in 26 minutes. With just over five minutes remaining in the first half and the Jayhawks (91) in complete control, Withey caught the ball in the paint, rose for a shot, had the ball knocked away, tried to bat it in out of midair, corralled the miss, dropped it in and was fouled. The Spiders were helpless to stop any of it, and the dejected looks on the faces of all five Richmond players on the floor said it all. “We knew that he would score tonight,” Mooney said of KU’s 7-foot center. “But he was able to score a little bit too easily on us.” Withey’s old-fashioned three-point play pushed KU’s lead to 31-11 with 5:08 to play in the first half and was just one of more than

a dozen moments in which he impacted the game. Most of Withey’s damage came in the first half, when he made five of seven shots and led both teams in points (11) and rebounds (eight). He finished 7-of-9 shooting and made three of the four free throws he attempted while adding two assists and two steals. “He’s a great player,” Mooney said. “How much he’s improved over the course of his career, which has been well documented, is really impressive, and it’s a credit to him and the coaches and the program.” The play of KU’s other seniors was more than enough to support Withey’s night, as point guard Elijah Johnson finished with eight points and seven assists, power forward Kevin Young added eight points and nine rebounds, and wing Travis Releford made all but one shot he took and finished with 11 points, two steals and two assists. All four played at or below their season average for minutes. “I thought they were every bit as good as advertised,” Mooney said. “And we weren’t able to compete as well as we would’ve liked. ... I’m most impressed with how they share the ball. ” The Spiders (9-3) said they most regretted how they let the game get out of hand so quickly. “Just to come out with more energy,” said Richmond guard Darien Brothers, asked what he would change if he could do it all again. “We let them get Nick Krug/Journal-World Photos on a couple of runs in the beginning, and we let that KANSAS FORWARD KEVIN YOUNG GETS A PUT-BACK DUNK OVER RICHMOND FORWARD TERRY ALLEN during the first half of KU’s 87-59 victory on Tuesday in Allen Fieldhouse. get to us.”


I didn’t think they were expecting it at all. They did it again,” Withey said. “I like to pride myself on being a pretty good passer. Travis made it easy for me.” It’s not often 235-pounders like Withey can shuffle their feet quickly enough to get in position for steals that lead to layups. “Early in Jeff’s career, people wanted him to be a different type of player,” said Pollard, who joked that Pollard is still “the best San Diegoan in KU history.” “They wanted him to be a banger and mess people up inside. That’s never been Jeff’s game. He’s always played this way, he just didn’t know how to display it. Last year and this year, he’s finally been able to play Jeff Witheystyle basketball. As Jayhawk fans are seeing now, it’s a pretty effective way of playing basketball.” KU coach Bill Self was impressed, noting: “There’s no question who the best player of the game was ... Withey was terrific, denying elbow passes and leading the break.” Withey scored 11 points off 5-of-7 shooting and had eight boards the first half as KU stormed to a 39-18 lead and never felt threatened the second half. “They played a weird defense, so a lot of times I got matched up with a guard on the post. That made it a lot easier,” Withey said. The Jayhawks (9-1) held Richmond to 32.8 percent shooting. The Spiders (93) hit nine of 32 threes, four of 16 the first half. “Our scout team did a great job preparing us,” Withey said. “We knew they could shoot. We keyed in on that. We knew exactly what they were going to run because our scout team did such a great job.” Ben McLemore scored 14 points, while Releford had 11 and Naadir Tharpe

Peter Parker would have had trouble scoring for the Spiders the way mobile 7-footer Jeff Withey, his eyes never losing the ball, his arms spanning the globe, made the lane a don’teven-think-about-it zone. Stat of the day, even better than Kansas going on an 18-0 run that spanned eight minutes and 16 seconds: Richmond made three shots inside the three-point line in the first half. That’s three two-point field goals in 20 minutes, which translates to one dusted spot on the Withey family trophy case for national defensive player of the year honors. How Withey’s defense and the team’s terrific ball movement at the other end withstand the hostility brought by the 19,200 spectators who will pack the Schottenstein Center will be revealed Saturday.

KANSAS CENTER JEFF WITHEY (5) DEFLECTS A SHOT by Richmond forward Derrick Williams during the second half. team. For one, it seems drama-free. No bad body language. Nobody seeming to play favorites. No glory hogs. No ballhogs. Nobody comes off as if he is forcing the right words out of his mouth when saying nice things about a teammate. When the team’s best player has an ego unaltered by the constant worship thrown the way of college basketball stars, that doesn’t hurt in developing strong team chemistry. When the best player so rapidly and constantly improves during his senior season, that challenges teammates to keep pace. Withey’s confidence is soaring, and

that of opponents withers at the sight of him. Self sounds confident about his team, but not all of his curiosity about it has been satisfied. “Now, we can go up there and hopefully take a real enthusiastic team up there, hunker down, see how tough we are and find out a lot about ourselves,” Self said. “... We need to have a good three days of preparation and go up there feeling good about ourselves, but understanding that this is going to be a true test of where we are right now. Right now, even though we played better, I still don’t know. This will clear some things up for us.” Withey will bring the

same quick feet and long reach to Columbus. The same starting five — one remarkably talented freshman and four seniors — will be called onto the floor before the opening tip. How will the Jayhawks handle the hostility? “Our guys have so much confidence playing at home, but to me it’s obviously much tougher on the road,” Self said. “You don’t play at home during the NCAA Tournament, so we need to figure out how to do it.” Tipoff is scheduled for 3 p.m. Three days before Christmas, for a two-hour window, don’t expect long lines at the stores in Lawrence.

City, Mo.

Kansas University sophomore Naadir Tharpe has some epic 1-on-1 battles with senior point guard Elijah Johnson at Jayhawk basketball practices. “We get after each other way more than we get after other people,” Johnson said after watching Tharpe score a career-high 11 points while dishing three assists against no turnovers in KU’s 87-59 rout of Richmond on Tuesday in Allen Fieldhouse. “I don’t understand why we are doing that. We talked about it. It’s something we are fixing right now.” Backup point guard Tharpe — who hit four of five shots, including three of four from three — said he likes challenging himself while playing on the Red Team (second team) and going against the Blue Team starters. “I’m trying to not put myself on the Blue Team as much. I need to go against these guys (like Johnson) and get ready for the game,” Tharpe said. “My teammates encouraged me in practice to keep shooting. Travis (Releford), Elijah and the rest of the dudes tell me to keep shooting, as well as coach. I’m going to miss shots. If my teammates are encouraging me as well as my coach and want me to keep shooting, I know there’s a time it’s going to fall,” added Tharpe, who entered the game six of 21 from three. Coach Bill Self said Tharpe had the “yellow light,” not a green light, as far as shooting the trey. “He gets confused,” Self said. “He wants to dribble in there among the giants and shoot over them as opposed to shooting an open

three. That’s the best-percentage shot for him, open jump shots because he can shoot the ball.” Tharpe played 17 minutes, Johnson 28. “Sometimes when I am in the game and look up to see he’s looking to get the ball and push it up-court, and I can just go,” Johnson said. “That is comfortable a lot of times instead of having to chase the ball down. I hope he keeps playing like this. I hope he gets better so he can actually pull some weight for us.” O

Self was asked if the team has bought in defensively: “I think our starters have. I’m not sure everybody has. I’m not sure Naadir and Perry (Ellis) and Jamari (Traylor) have because Naadir has potential to do that. I think it’s still new to Perry and Jamari. I think they have made great strides. I’m not sure collectively we have eight guys you feel no matter who is guarding who we can get a stop and get teams out of their comfort zone. For the most part, it’s not bad. It’s getting better. Kevin (Young) can improve in that area.” O

Stats, facts: KU is 9-1 or better for the third time in the last four seasons and the fifth time in the 10-year Self era. ... KU has won eight consecutive games. ... KU has won 61 straight nonconference home games. ... KU is 688107 all-time in Allen. ...

Top 25 Men No. 7 Ohio State 65, Winthrop 55 COLUMBUS, OHIO â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Deshaun Thomas scored 21 points â&#x20AC;&#x201D; missing nine straight shots at one point and making five in a row at another â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to lead Ohio State past Winthrop on Tuesday night. It was the last tune-up for the Buckeyes (9-1) before Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rematch with No. 9 Kansas. The Jayhawks beat them twice last year, once at Allen Fieldhouse and then in the Final Four. Whether Ohio State was looking past Winthrop (45) and ahead to Kansas, or whether the Eagles just played well and the Buckeyes did not, the game was in doubt until Thomas got hot. Lenzelle Smith Jr. added 14 points for the Buckeyes, who have won four in a row, all at home, since a 73-68 defeat at No. 2 Duke on Nov. 28 in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a game the Buckeyes led most of the way.

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no secret that liquor is a simple solution to holiday gift-giving. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see a lot of people lining up Dec. 26 to return bottles of 12-year-old Scotch. And what better way to embrace the spirit of giving than by giving a spirit? But letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s face it, sticking a ribbon on a generic bottle of booze can come across as a bit uninspired. Here, then, are a few suggestions to avoid a case of the blahs by choosing spirits that are good in the glass, but also do double duty in the kitchen, adding zest to seasonal dishes.

Appleton Estate Reserve Jamaica Rum A blend of 20 different rums thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s aged in oak barrels, Appleton Estate Reserve can be sipped on the rocks or in classic cocktails like the mai tai. Stove-side itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good stirred into chocolate fondue with the spiced vanilla, nuts and candied orange flavors of the rum melting into the rich chocolate. An Appleton recipe calls for heating 2 tablespoons butter, 2 tablespoons plain or vanilla yogurt and a half cup of heavy whipping cream until hot but not boiling, then stir in 1 1/2 tablespoons of rum and pouring the whole thing over 7 ounces of chopped semisweet chocolate. Into a heated fondue pot it goes, and let the dipping commence. Wild Turkey 81 Bourbon There are two ways to serve turkey â&#x20AC;&#x201D; too dry or too raw. Wild Turkey bourbon, on the other hand, is ready at the twist of a cap, absolutely no basting required. Aged six-to-eight years, the drink can be served straight or as a mixer in cocktails like the newly fashionable Old Fashioned. On the culinary side, try boosting the brown-sugarplus-butter treatment for baked acorn squash halves by spooning a tablespoon of bourbon into the cavities, along with a dusting of cinnamon. It also is delicious stirred into buttered and mashed sweet potatoes. A little brown sugar in there is nice, too.



This holiday season, give the gift of seasoned salt Associated Press

It seemed like a tall order. I wanted an edible gift that was fast and easy to make, inexpensive, wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t spoil or need to be refrigerated, and that kids could be involved in. With so many caveats, the field is pretty narrow. The solution I came up with â&#x20AC;&#x201D; seasoned salts. The concept is simple. Blend salt with various seasonings, then package them nicely. The kids can even get in on decorating and labeling the jars. There are just a few things to remember as you do this. Most important is that seasoned salts â&#x20AC;&#x201D; whether prepared or purchased â&#x20AC;&#x201D; are intended as finishing salts. That means they should be used to season finished dishes, not during cooking. For gift purposes, I suggest planning for two kinds of salt â&#x20AC;&#x201D; powdered salt, which is intended for use on popcorn, and

First, the powdered salt. The powdered part of this is key.

1 pound kosher salt, 2 tablespoons pumpkin pie spice blend (mix the spice blend into the salt after it is ground)

to the processor or blender at the same time. When selecting seasonings for popcorn salt, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hesitate to get creative, even mixing sweet and savory flavors. But always aim to use seasonings with a similar texture as the powdered salt (finely ground seasonings such as cinnamon, paprika, garlic powder, etc.). For flake salts intended to use on savory foods, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll need to start with pricier flaked sea salt. You usually can find bargains on this variety at places such as Trader Joeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and similar retailers. With these salts, you simply mix them with the seasonings you want, then bottle them. Even easier than powdered salts. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve outlined a few suggestions for each variety.

is simple. Use inexpensive kosher salt (usually about $1.50 for a 3-pound box), then run it through either a food processor or blender (you also can use a mortar and pestle for smaller batches) until it reaches the consistency of powdered sugar. Seasonings can be mixed in by hand after the salt is ground, or simply added

Square One Organic Vodka The company has a luscious recipe for pear noel, (a play on â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pere Noel,â&#x20AC;? the French Santa Claus) on its website that involves pureed pears, vodka, tawny port, sweet red vermouth, brown sugar, honey and whipped cream. Yum. You also can check the old adage that the (80) proof is in the pudding by subbing vodka for the traditional brandy when setting your Christmas pudding alight. British celebrity chef Nigella Lawson recommends warmed vodka for a purer and longer flame. (And if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking for a recipe, her nonconformist Christmas pudding in her book, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Feast,â&#x20AC;? may just change your mind about the muchmaligned seasonal staple.)

Oro Azul Tequila Reposado Double distilled and made from 100 percent blue agave, this tequila comes in a pyramid-shaped blue bottle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Reposadoâ&#x20AC;? means â&#x20AC;&#x153;rested,â&#x20AC;? and indicates the spirit has been aged in oak barrels for at least two months, but less than a year. (Oro Azul reposado is rested for six months.) A Christmas margarita might hit the spot. Or why not stir a few tablespoons into your special secret homemade queso dip?

Luxardo Espresso Italian Coffee Liqueur Sometimes, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just not in the mood for a long winterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nap. Infused with coffees from Central America and Kenya, this liqueur can be served on the rocks or with cream as an after-dinner drink. It plays well with others, featuring in cocktails like the black Russian and Irish coffee. You also can add it to tiramisu and other desserts, or simply warm and pour over ice cream.

Chocolate cake sets decadent mood Spanish white wine

You want something rich and decadent for the holidays. Something chocolate. Something that will impress. Something that really screams celebration. But you don’t want to spend hours making it.

Add the salt, sugar, bay leaves and peppercorns, and bring to a boil, until salt and sugar are dissolved. Cool thoroughly. Unwrap the goose/duck and remove anything in the cavity. (Feel free to roast the neck, heart and gizzards separately. You can place them in the sauce while it reduces.) Rinse and trim any excess fat from the neck and tail end of the bird and place it in the brine so it is completely submerged. Cover and refrigerate overnight, or up to 24 hours. Remove the bird from the brine and pat dry, inside and out, with paper towels. Carefully prick the skin with a paring knife, making sure not to cut all the way through to the meat. This will allow the fat to drain and baste the bird. It will also ensure a crispier skin. Sprinkle the bird cavity generously with salt, fivespice powder and pepper. Cut the onion, apple, orange and lemon, and place into the cavity. Place the bird, breast-side up, in a large roasting pan with rack, to keep the bird at least 1 inch off the bottom. Add up to 2 cups of warm water to the bottom of the pan. Roast at 350 F for 2 1/4 to 3 hours, until the meat reaches an internal temperature of 170 F. Remove bird from oven, cover loosely with foil and let rest at least 25 minutes before carving. To make the sauce: In a saucepan, sweat the aromatics (carrot, celery and shallots) over medium heat until softened. Add remaining ingredients except the marmalade, mustard and seasoning. Bring to a simmer, and cook until sauce is reduced by 1/2 to 2/3. Strain the reduction and whisk in marmalade, mustard and seasoning. Taste and adjust seasonings as desired. Serve on the side of carved bird with your favorite accompaniments. (Recipe from Ken Baker, Pachamama’s)

In Chris Rieke’s family, pot roast is usually the main course at Christmas dinner. This one-pot recipe for braised lamb shanks is the same idea and just as easy, but the dish’s not-soeveryday cut of meat and bone-in presentation are even more special-occasion worthy. “This is kind of a nicer thing that can wow people,” said Rieke, who is executive chef at Teller’s, 746 Massachusetts St. Rieke suggests serving a fresh salad and green vegetable such as sauteed fresh green beans alongside this main dish.


Beer-Braised Lamb Shanks Servings: 2 2 tablespoons vegetable

Salt and pepper 2 lamb shanks 1 can beer (pilsner) 32 ounces chicken stock or broth, or enough to cover all but 1 inch of shanks 3 cloves garlic 1/2 large white onion, chopped in to large pieces 3 celery stalks, chopped into large pieces 1 large potato, peeled and chopped into large pieces 1 large carrot, chopped into large pieces 2 tablespoons fresh herbs, such as rosemary or mint Heat the oven to 350 F. In a large, oven-safe pot or Dutch oven, heat oil to almost smoking. Sprinkle lamb shanks with salt and pepper. Sear shanks on all sides, just long enough to create a crisp, brown coating. Remove shanks from pot and set aside. Add vegetables to pot and sautée about a minute. Place shanks back in pot, add beer and chicken stock, bring to a boil. Remove pot from stove and place in oven, leaving uncovered. Simmer 2 1/2 hours. Serve vegetables alongside lamb shanks and sprinkle with fresh herbs. (Recipe from Chris Rieke, Teller’s)

Fruit salad is festive yet fresh Not all foods have to be overly difficult, decadent or sweet to be “of the season.” P a i g e Vandegrift, who teaches cooking classes at the Merc Vandegrift and blogs at, said this festive, refreshing and beautifully colored salad — highlighted with clementines and pomegranates, both in season in December — would make a perfect first course for a dinner party. Except for the avocado, all the pieces of the salad can be prepared ahead so you can focus on your

Clementine and Pomegranate Salad with Avocado Servings: 6 to 8 For the dressing: 1 1/2 tablespoons white (or golden) Balsamic vinegar 1 1/2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard 1 teaspoon clementine zest Salt and pepper 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil For the salad: 1 to 1 1/4 pounds clementines (or another seedless variety of Mandarin oranges or tangerines) 2 large ripe, but not too soft, avocados (preferably Haas) 8 small handfuls of mixed baby lettuces (about 5 to 6 ounces) 3/4 to 1 cup pomegranate seeds, from one medium pomegranate To make the vinaigrette, in a small bowl, whisk the vinegar, lemon juice, mustard, zest and 1/4 teaspoon salt until smooth. While whisking, add the olive oil in a thin stream. You should obtain a lightly thickened emulsified vinaigrette. Taste and correct the balance and seasoning. The vinaigrette should be sharp (to balance the sweetness of the fruits). To prepare the clementines, cut the stem and blossom ends from the fruit. Place each fruit cut side down on the cutting board and, following the contour of the fruit with your knife, remove the peel and cottony pith — working from top to bottom and rotating the fruit as you go. When the clementines are all peeled, slice them cross-wise into 1/4-inch pinwheels. Set aside. When you are ready to make the salad, halve the avocados and remove the pit and peel. Cut each half in half lengthwise (to obtain a quarter) and slice the avocado cross-wise into 1/4inch slices. Drizzle with a bit of the vinaigrette and season with salt and pepper. In a large bowl, place the greens and season with salt and pepper. Drizzle with a small amount of vinaigrette. Toss the greens with the vinaigrette, adding more vinaigrette if necessary, until all of the leaves are coated with a light film of dressing. Place half of the greens on a large platter. Nestle half of the avocado slices and clementine pinwheels into the greens, being careful not to flatten the greens. Scatter half of the pomegranate seeds over all. Arrange the rest of the greens on top, and tuck the remaining avocado slices and Clementine pinwheels into the salad, again scattering the pomegranate seeds over all. Drizzle with some of the remaining vinaigrette, if you like. (Alternatively, build the salad on individual salad plates.) Note: The amounts of clementine, avocado, salad greens and pomegranate seeds are only a guideline. The idea is to make a salad

Cocktails to get cozy with Once the main meal is over and the dishes are done, it’s time for a cocktail at Justin Lee’s large family Christmas get-togethers. Lee, general manager at Paisano’s Ristorante, 2112 W. 25th St., started creating holiday cocktails for the restaurant a couple of years ago. Drinks that are served hot or hinge on rich flavors like hazelnut, nutmeg and vanilla are perfect this time of year, Lee said. While a restaurant like Paisano’s keeps specialty liquors in stock, a better — and less expensive — approach for at-home mixing is choosing one recipe to serve as a signature drink at a party or family gathering.

A cookie dough dip that’s actually good By J.M. Hirsch Associated Press

This summer I had the misfortune to encounter the Internet culinary sensation known as cookie dough dip. It was at a potluck party and folks were raving about this creation, which until then I’d been ignorant of. My son and I were eager to try this seemingly miraculous blend of two of nature’s most wonderful food products. This wildly popular dip is made by blending canned white beans and chocolate chips, among other unlikely ingredients. The idea is to create a healthy dip that supposedly tastes like cookie dough. It doesn’t. It’s not cute. And it’s certainly not good. So I decided to create my own version of this monstrosity. Except that my chocolate chip cookie dough dip would actually taste like chocolate chip cookie dough miraculously transformed into a dip. It would be sweet, but not too sweet. It would be studded with deliciously chewy chunks of cookie dough. Real cookie dough, not masticated beans. The result was a delicious sugar rush that begs for something crunchy and salty to dip in it. If you use purchased cookie dough, be certain to use one that contains only pasteurized eggs.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip Start to finish: 30 minutes Servings: 24 For the cookie dough: 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature 1/2 cup packed brown sugar 1/4 cup granulated sugar

1 tablespoon milk or cream 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour 3/4 cup mini chocolate chips For the dip: Two 8-ounce packages cream cheese, softened 2 cups powdered sugar 6 tablespoons milk 1 teaspoon almond extract Pinch salt 1/2 cup sour cream 10 Oreo (or similar) cookies, crushed To make the cookie dough, in a large bowl use an electric mixer to beat the butter and both sugars until light and fluffy. Add the milk, vanilla and salt, then mix well. Add the flour and mix just until thoroughly blended. Mix in the chocolate chips. Divide the mixture into chunks, about 1 teaspoon each. They don’t need to be perfectly rounded. Arrange them without touching on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet, then place in the freezer for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, in a food processor combine the cream cheese and powdered sugar. Process until smooth and creamy. Add the milk, almond extract, salt and sour cream, then process. Transfer to a bowl, then use a spatula or spoon to gently stir in the crushed cookies. Once the cookie dough chunks have chilled, gently stir them into the dip. Transfer to a serving bowl and serve immediately or chill until ready to serve.

Don’t be afraid to salt the sauce — I always think it needs it. Just salt gently and taste as you go. Meanwhile, dump your noodles into a large mixing bowl, and dice up your ham. Add the ham and the cheese sauce, and stir everything together. (I actually did this all right in the casserole dish, but if you aren’t careful it can get pretty messy.) Transfer to a large casserole dish, and sprinkle panko on top of everything. Bake for 15 or 20 minutes until everything is slightly brown on top and the ham bits are heated through. This made enough for my family of three to have several meals, which makes it EXTRA awesome. Leftovers are my friend. — Read more of Megan Stuke’s Flying Fork blog at

The simple satisfaction of one-pot meals


s this pregnancy limps to the finish line, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had to find ways to simplify my life. I keep comparing this pregnancy to my last one and asking myself why this one seems so much harder, given that for all intents and purposes, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going more smoothly. I mean, last time, I had gestational diabetes. Last time, I had a lot of inexplicable pain, and last time it was the heat of August in the last month. This time, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m diabetesfree and mostly pain-free, and I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even complain about the weather. Still, this seems much harder. Maybe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m four years old-

a blog by Megan Stuke er. Being 39 and pregnant is HARD on the body. But most probably itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all situational. Last time, I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have any other kids. In fact, I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even really have a husband, seeing as he was working on the road for 90 percent of the gestational period. I had a fairly simple and relaxing desk job. At night, I came

and petted my cats. This time I have a family to feed at night, a demanding and physical job, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s freaking CHRISTMAS. Something had to give. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t up and quit my job, and I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make it not be Christmas, but heck if I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t figure out how to eliminate some of the work in creating evening meals. I, Megan Stuke, have become the Queen of the Casserole. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve found ways to make one-pot meals exciting and fun. My husband and child are totally into this kind of cooking since it often includes noodles and cheese,

and, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s face it, who doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like noodles and cheese? Sunday nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pasta dinner, then, moved away from our usual Italian fare and toward the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tired and this is comfort foodâ&#x20AC;? part of the show.

Extra Creamy Mac and Cheese with Ham 1 box large elbow macaroni (I used corkscrews because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all I had) 4 ounces cream cheese 1 cup shredded Velveeta 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar 2 cups milk or half and half 3 tablespoons flour Please see FORK, page 9B

Dear Annie: Back in May, our son and his wife invited us to a concert at the end of December to celebrate my husband’s milestone birthday. They said it would be their treat, and we all agreed it would be a fun evening. Over the next few months, we got together often, and no mention was made of the concert. Yesterday, I sent a text saying we were excited about the concert and asked what time we should leave. Our son responded with a text saying they weren’t going and that we should have checked with them sooner. Regardless of the reason — whether illness, money, work schedule or whatever — shouldn’t the people who extended the invitation let the guests know there is a change of plans? We are so disappointed and — Confused About Cancellation Dear Confused: Your

son and his wife should not have issued the invitation unless they meant it should have notified you well in advance if the plans had changed. However, it’s also possible they simply forgot about it until it was too late to get the tickets, in which case, mentioning how excited you were about the upcoming concert in, say, August might have averted this family drama. One should be diplomatic but not so reticent to speak that these things become an issue. Good communication, espe-

cially between parents and children, can resolve or prevent a great many problems. Dear Annie: I read your column every day and love it, so I’d like your opinion on something. My little brother and his wife are expecting their first child in April. They have decided to have a “reveal party” to let everyone know the sex of the baby. This means the doctor will write down the gender of the baby and put it in a sealed envelope. Then someone takes the envelope to a party supply store where they pack a box with balloons filled with the appropriate color — pink or blue. At the party, the expectant parents open the box, and the balloons fly out letting everyone know the sex of the baby. To me, this seems like something the expectant parents would like to share with each other, without an audience. I am


a gay male and probably will never have children, so this really doesn’t impact my life. But I am curious about what you think. — Greensboro, N.C. Dear Greensboro: While some parents prefer to get this news privately, in today’s Facebook age, many want to share it with friends and family as soon as possible. So a party makes sense to them. Yes, some people will interpret this as one more act of narcissism, but most expectant parents are so thrilled to share this news that we think the motives are actually sweet. Of course, if the parents have a gender preference, it’s best to get the news in private, since guests don’t want to see one of the hosts burst into tears of disappointment. Otherwise, we think these events are a matter of personal choice. Go and enjoy yourself.
