Oops: Big apology due to small town
Building numbers suggest brighter outlook Staff reports
Special to the Journal-World
THE KANSAS LEADERSHIP CENTER SENT OUT THIS POSTCARD promoting the benefits of receiving leadership training. The picture of the dilapidated downtown at bottom is intended to suggest a lack of effective leadership. Problem is, the picture is of a real town in Kansas, Effingham, and its residents are none too pleased.
Effingham residents unhappy that their home is used as ‘undesirable’ example Organization says it didn’t know picture was of Kansas town By Chad Lawhorn email@example.com
A picture is worth a thousand words — and sometimes not always the right ones. A statewide group that promotes leadership is in the process of apologizing to the small Kansas community of Effingham after the
organization sent out a picture and postcard suggesting Effingham isn’t the type of town people would like to live in. “I can completely understand why the people of Effingham are disappointed,” said Ed O’Malley, president and chief executive officer of the Kansas Leadership Center.
Here’s what happened: The Kansas Leadership Center this fall sent out postcards in Lawrence and eight other communities promoting the benefits of receiving leadership training. In Lawrence, the postcard specifically was trying to generate interest for the Leadership Lawrence program that is operated through the Lawrence
Chamber of Commerce. The postcard contained two pictures. One was of a vibrant community celebration. The other was of a dilapidated downtown block. The postcard asked readers, “Which community would you rather call home?” The postcard then went on to suggest the community with the dilapidated downtown was lacking effective leadership.
For Christmas this year, Lori Heasty traded in cookies and petits fours for something she thought would do a little more good: donations to local charities. Heasty, the owner of CritiCare Home Health Services, typically gives food as a thank you to the more than 50 businesses her company works with throughout the year. But this season, Heasty made the
decision to send out Christmas cards that let the companies know a donation had been made instead. “There are a lot of people having a hard time, larger organizations that just need a little extra help,” Heasty said. “Do we really need more food? Not really. We need more exercise. So that is why we decided to do it this year.”
So far, the response from Heasty’s business associates has been positive and her employees feel good. “I feel strongly that Lawrence is an awesome place, and it’s nice to be able to give back,” Heasty said. Heasty is one of many people throughout Lawrence who give gifts that keep on giving during the holiday season.

Donations to charity may be the best gift By Christine Metz
A new report out of Lawrence City Hall shows the city’s construction industry will post stronger numbers than a year ago, and likely its best since 2007. Lawrence builders have started 137 single-family homes in the city through November. That’s up from 110 homes that were started in all of 2009. Builders also have started 247 remodeling jobs thus far in 2010, which is up from 200 in all of 2009. Building permit fees also are above last year’s totals. The city has collected $599,455 in fees, up from $565,524 a year ago. Duplex and apartment construction are two areas where builders haven’t yet surpassed last year’s totals. Builders have started 10 duplexes through November — compared with 16 for all of 2009 — and 96 apartment units, down from 172 in 2009. The number of single family home permits — long considered a key measure of the health of the local construction industry — are at their highest mark since 2007. But the report doesn’t yet indicate a clear rebound for the industry. That’s in part because 2008 and 2009 were among the worst years on record for single family home construction. Here’s a look at single family home numbers since 2000:
And for the local organizations that receive them, the donations are critical. The United Way of Douglas County is asking holiday shoppers to keep its organization in mind. They hope people will make gifts in honor of those on their shopping list that would help meet the organization’s $100,000 shortfall.

Things to consider before you give For those thinking about giving a donation to a charity in lieu of a gift, Consumer Reports advises givers to ask the recipient about a charitable donation to make sure it is what the person wants. It’s also a good idea to find out what organizations the person supports. Consumer Reports also tells givers to be wary of charitable gift cards. While charitable gift cards allow the recipient to select from
an array of charities, the card can come with hidden fees that have a percentage of the money go to the group issuing the card rather than to the nonprofit. If in doubt, Consumer Reports recommends just giving cash and suggesting that some or part of the money go toward his or her favorite charity. That way, the recipient can decide where the money should go, even if it’s into his or her own pocket.

The problem, though, is that the picture of the dilapidated downtown is of Effingham, a community of about 650 people about 45 minutes northwest of Lawrence. To make matters worse, the Kansas Leadership Center has a mission of helping Kansas communities such as Effingham prosper, not publicly suggesting to thousands that it is on the wrong track. O’Malley said the picture was a mistake, and also an example of how small the world has become. He said the center’s marketing team pulled the photo off an online website that offers generic “stock” photos for use. The photo wasn’t identified as being taken in Effingham, and the staff did not recognize it as a Kansas community. “If we would have known that it was of a Kansas town, ARRY ON EEDLE we would never have used it,” O’Malley said. “I feel awful Private services for Barry University Hospital in that it has happened.” Jon Beedle, 55, Eudora, will Kansas City, Kan.

1 | WASHINGTON, D.C.
Obama seeks GOP support in arms pact President Barack Obama tried to sway reluctant Republican senators on Monday to back a new arms control treaty with Russia as GOP aversion to giving a politically damaged president another victory intruded on his national security agenda. The White House and senior Democrats expressed confidence that they had the votes for the accord that was signed by Obama and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev in April. The two countries negotiated the New START pact to cap nuclear weapons and restart weapons inspections in the spirit of U.S. efforts to reset the relationship between the former Cold War foes. Proponents edged closer to getting the two-thirds vote they needed for ratification as Republican Sen. Scott Brown of Massachusetts announced he would support the treaty. 2 | SOUTH CAROLINA
‘Secession Ball’ met with protests
Republican Jay Emler says more funding for higher ed ‘simply doesn’t exist’ By Scott Rothschild firstname.lastname@example.org
T O P E K A — Kansas Senate Republicans on Monday elected a new majority leader who said that repeal of the recent sales tax was a bad idea and that higher education would probably not see an increase in funding. Sen. Jay Emler, R-Lindsborg, was elected without dissent and
without opposition by his fellow Republicans, who hold a 32-8 advantage over Democrats in the Senate. Asked about Emler upcoming legislative budget battles, Emler, who has served as
Giving it a good yank
The memory of the Civil War collided with modern-day civil rights Monday as protesters targeted a “Secession Ball,” commemorating South Carolina’s decision exactly 150 years ago to secede from the United States of America. As blacks and whites gathered in the twilight with electric candles and signs for an NAACP protest, a predominantly white group of men in old-fashioned tuxedos and women in long-flowing dresses and gloves stopped to watch and take pictures before going into the Charleston auditorium where the ball was taking place. NAACP leaders said it made no sense to hold a gala to honor men who committed treason against their own nation for the sake of a system that kept black men and women in bondage as slaves. They compared Confederate leaders to terrorists and Nazi soldiers. But organizers of the ball said it had nothing to do with celebrating slavery. Instead, the $100-a-person private event was a fundraiser to honor the Southern men who were willing to sacrifice their lives for their homes and their vision of states’ rights.

DOWNTOWN STABBING CASE
By George Diepenbrock
3 | LONDON
In the biggest anti-terrorist sweep in Britain in nearly two years, police have arrested a dozen men accused of plotting a large-scale terror attack on targets inside the United Kingdom. The suspects, who ranged in age from 17 to 28, had been under surveillance for weeks and were believed to have links to Pakistan and Bangladesh, security officials said. The arrests come amid growing concerns in Europe over terrorism following a suicide bombing in Sweden and reported threats of a terror attack on a European city modeled on the deadly shooting spree in Mumbai, India. Police swooped in before dawn Monday in coordinated raids on houses in four cities — London, the Welsh city of Cardiff and the English cities of Birmingham and Stoke-on-Trent. The officers were unarmed, suggesting any planned attack was not imminent.
chairman of the Senate budget committee, said the state spending plan for next fiscal year will be “austere.” Emler also serves on the transition team of Gov.-elect Sam Brownback, a Republican who will take office Jan. 10 at the start of the 2011 legislative session.

An attorney for a Fort Leavenworth soldier charged in a downtown Lawrence stabbing says self-defense could come into play in the case. During a hearing Monday for 19-year-old Christopher J. McCallum, defense attorney James Rumsey said video from the 600 block of Massachusetts Street would show the alleged stabbing victim in the case throwing a person onto the hood of a car. Rumsey’s statements came as he asked District Judge Sally Pokorny to lower McCallum’s $100,000 bond. Douglas County prosecutors last week charged McCallum with one count of aggravated battery after a 20-year-old Kansas City, Kan., man was stabbed during a fight early Dec. 5 outside Liberty Hall, 644 Mass. Rumsey said that according to the law enforcement affidavit, a fight started inside Liberty Hall, where McCallum and some friends had attended an event. Once the people involved in the fight were removed from inside, the fight resumed. The defense attorney said video would show the alleged victim in the case throwing McCallum’s friend — another Fort Leavenworth soldier — onto a car and two other men
“pounding on this guy after he was thrown on the hood.” “It wasn’t a situation where (the alleged victim) was an innocent bystander,” Rumsey said in court Monday afternoon. “And he’s probably committing an aggravated battery on my client’s friend, which brings up some potential elements of self-defense.” Police had broken up the fight outside Liberty Hall, but they were called later to Lawrence Memorial Hospital where the Kansas City, Kan., man went, suffering from stab wounds. He was later transferred to a Kansas City-area hospital and released several days later. Greg Benefiel, an assistant district attorney, said the stabbing victim indicated in the affidavit that he was jumped upon leaving Liberty Hall, which caused him to throw a man onto the hood of a car. Pokorny did not rule on Rumsey’s motion for a lower bond, but she said she would consider it again after the Jan. 10 preliminary hearing in the case. Rumsey said that the Army would still detain McCallum at Fort Leavenworth if he posts bond here but that his client preferred to be in custody there instead of Douglas County Jail. — Reporter George Diepenbrock can be reached at 832-7144.

Storm hits state; more rain expected A powerful storm system with drenching rain, heavy snow and high winds lashed California on Monday, but forecasters warned the worst was yet to come. Even stronger storms were bearing down on the state and threatened to dump another 5 to 10 inches of rain during the next two days. Virtually the entire state was affected by the bad weather.

Historical Kansas newspapers now available online By Beccy Tanner The Wichita Eagle
WICH ITA — Some of Kansas’ oldest newspapers are now online through the Library of Congress, allowing anyone with Internet access to view how 19th-century Kansas was built day by day. In some ways it revolutionizes how people can research Kansas history, but it is only one step in
recording that history. Only 20 newspapers from six different regions of the state have been put on the website so far. “For Kansas, for this time period from 1860 to 1922, we have approximately 5,600 newspaper titles in our archives,” said Margaret Knecht, one of the Kansas Historical Society committee members who helped get the 100,000 digitized pages from

Aviation museum plans agriculture exhibit LIBERAL — An aviation museum in the southwest Kansas town of Liberal is creating an exhibit that will tell the story of aviation in agriculture and highlight a group called the International Flying Farmers. The Leader & Times in Liberal reported that the effort got a boost last week when a group of Liberal residents donated the proceeds from an air show to Mid-America Air Museum Director Jim Bert. The checks from the 2010 Air Fair Committee totaled $5,395. Earlier, a Flying Farmer from Iowa donated $10,000 to the project. Two foundations and the city of Liberal also are helping out. The exhibit will feature items from the group, including numerous photos.

FCC in place to adopt network neutrality rules By Joelle Tessler Associated Press Writer
WASHINGTON — New rules aimed at prohibiting broadband providers from becoming gatekeepers of Internet traffic now have just enough votes to pass the Federal Communications Commission today. The rules would prohibit phone and cable companies from abusing their control
over broadband connections to discriminate against rival content or services, such as Internet phone calls or online video, or play favorites with Web traffic.

Democrats said Monday they will vote for the rules, even though they consider them too weak. The outcome caps a nearly-16-month push by Genachowski to pass “network neutrality” rules and marks a key turning point in a policy dispute that began more than five years ago. “The open Internet is a crucial American marketplace, and I believe that it is
appropriate for the FCC to safeguard it by adopting an order that will establish clear rules to protect consumers’ access,” Commissioner Mignon Clyburn, a Democrat, said in a statement. Yet many supporters of network neutrality are disappointed. Clyburn and the other Democrat, Michael Copps, both said the rules are not as strong as they would

Wayne Riley, chief of Lecompton FireEMS, the homeowner came home about 9:30 p.m. to find the house filled with smoke. Riley said the amount of damage and the cause hadn't yet been determined, but he said it looked like the fire started in the basement. Riley said the inside of the house was gutted by the fire, but the outside of the house looked fine. Riley said it took about twoand-a-half hours to extinguish the fire fully. Units from Lecompton, Kanawaka and Wakarusa responded to the scene. A medic from Lawrence and a water tender from Shawnee Heights fire also came to the scene.

The Lawrence Humane Society receives several thousand dollars each year from people who give donations to the nonprofit animal shelter in lieu of gifts. “Most of the time the people who get the gift are genuinely thrilled that someone took the time to do something that is a passion of theirs,” shelter executive director Midge Grinstead said.
Megan Meyers gave donations to the local humane society in honor of her three co-workers at Pennington and Co. The recipients are all pet owners and throughout the year make sure to recycle their aluminum cans to benefit the organization. “You get to the point where you don’t really need anything. And it’s nice to receive something that benef its something else,” Meyers said. In the past, Rusty Shelton has given gifts of sheep, honey bees, chickens and even part of a cow.

Meanwhile, even the weakened rules are likely to face intense scrutiny as soon as the Republicans take over the House next year.
A 19-year-old man who faces a rape charge in connection with an August incident at a Kansas University fraternity waived his right on Monday to a preliminary hearing. The man’s attorney asked for a Feb. 4 hearing before setting a trial date. “At that point, we’ll know whether this could be resolved or not,” defense attorney Tom Bath told Douglas County District Judge Peggy Kittel. The man, who is no longer a KU student, faces one count of rape or an alternative count of aggravated sexual battery. A female KU student reported to Lawrence police that on the night of Aug. 21 she was at the Delta Chi fraternity house, 1245 West Campus Road, and fell asleep in a room there. Prosecutors allege she was then sexually assaulted by the suspect, who was an acquaintance. She called Lawrence police the next day when she returned to her residence hall, and officers later arrested the 19-year-old man after they interviewed him.
The Journal-World generally does not name suspects in sex-crime cases unless they are convicted. The defendant remains free on $35,000 bond. National fraternity officials have said they will not conclude their own review of the matter until the criminal case is resolved.

Discrimination issue The new system for handling discrimination complaints in the city may be working fine, but a drop in investigations this year warrants monitoring.
Petraeus offers Afghanistan evaluation KABUL, AFGHANISTAN — As President Obama was rolling out his Afghan policy review, I had the chance to visit U.S. forwardoperating bases in the Taliban heartland, and to interview Gen. David Petraeus. I came away convinced that, after the surge of 30,000 U.S. troops, real progress is being made in clearing the Taliban from large areas in the south — and disrupting its networks. Yet a visit to Camp Hansen, a dusty U.S. out-
dramatic drop in the number of discrimination complaints investigated by the city this year may be good news or cause for concern. As a budget-cutting measure, city commissioners approved the elimination at the beginning of this year of two city jobs that were responsible for overseeing and enforcing the city’s Human Relations Code. The code prohibits discrimination on the basis of gender, race, religion, sexual orientation and a number of other factors when it comes to employment, housing and other areas. Responsibility for investigating discrimination complaints was transferred to the city prosecutor’s office. That seemed like a reasonable course, but reports last week that discrimination complaints investigated by the city had dropped from 17 in 2009 to three in 2010 is raising some questions. There are a number of factors that might explain such a drop. The most favorable would be that there were far fewer people who felt they were the victims of discrimination this year, but that doesn’t seem particularly likely. It’s also possible that the city prosecutor’s office is being far more selective than the city’s former human relations department had been in deciding which cases to investigate. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, as long as cases that have merit still are investigated. The other possibility that should concern city commissioners more is that the local residents may not know where to file a complaint or may be intimidated by the legal atmosphere of the city prosecutor’s office. These are issues city employees should be able to address. For instance, information about where to file discrimination complaints isn’t particularly easy to find on the city’s website — even after some misinformation was pointed out by a Journal-World reporter and corrected. It also wouldn’t hurt for employees in the city prosecutor’s office to make an extra effort to work with people who want to file a complaint and make them feel more comfortable with the process. Even if the complaint ends up not warranting investigation, people deserve to be heard. City leaders have traditionally taken enforcement of the human relations code seriously. The state also has anti-discrimination laws, and local residents could take their complaints to the Kansas Human Rights Commission, but Lawrence officials have maintained that it’s important for residents to have a local venue in which to address those issues. We agree with Mayor Mike Amyx, that the city should give the new system time to work. During that time the city’s Human Relations Board also should monitor the situation and try to gauge whether the needs of city residents are being met. It’s great that Lawrence places a high priority on local enforcement of human rights laws. That process only works, however, if people can access the information they need and the officials who can help them.

He says he is not ‘an “optimist or a pessimist.’
Instead, he repeats Obama’s mantra that Afghan progress is ‘fragile and reversible’ and ‘must be solidified.’ Perhaps this is a hedge against failure. Perhaps it is pragmatism. Maybe it is just warding off the evil eye.”
post in hotly contested Helmand province, made clear why Obama called those gains “fragile” and said they could be reversed. U.S. troops hope to expand and link “ink spots” — areas cleared of Taliban — in rural Helmand districts such as Nawa and Marjah. The U.S. military wants to transition partial responsibility for Nawa to Afghan civilian and military personnel by next summer.
Two key factors But that goal is undercut by two factors. First, the central Afghan government in Kabul hasn’t sent personnel to staff local and district offices, or to dispense justice. The failure to adjudicate land disputes pushes farmers into the arms of the Taliban, which operates religious courts. Moreover, the central government often appoints corrupt provincial and district governors or tries to fire honest ones. It took heavy NATO pressure to keep the capable governor in Helmand from being fired by President Hamid Karzai. Second, when the Taliban is driven out of Helmand, it can find sanctuary across the border in Pakistan. Marine Col. David
Furness told reporters that the Taliban brought in weapons and electronic components along the “rat line” from Pakistan. “If they couldn’t go to Pakistan, it would be over,” he said. As commander in Afghanistan, Petraeus is painfully aware of these two strategic Achilles heels: lack of adequate governance and the safe havens in Pakistan. At his headquarters in Kabul, he spoke of military gains, saying U.S. forces have “arrested the momentum of the Taliban in many areas and reversed it in some,” while taking out midlevel Taliban members and bomb-makers. Handing out copies of his famous multicolored PowerPoint charts, he described a strategy that, while focused on the south and east, is also doing “shaping operations” in the troubled north and expanding the vastly improved security in Kabul to its neighboring provinces. He was clearly piqued that many think his focus is now purely military, and stressed that “kinetic operations, while necessary, are not sufficient.” While securing an area is the priority, he said, “you have to exploit it through Afghan local governance and anticorruption measures” so villagers “will support the Afghan government.” In other words, if their local government doesn’t offer services and justice, the people will turn, often reluctantly, to the Taliban. Petraeus has not given up hope that nascent Afghan institutions and government will gradually
improve. “The governors (Karzai) has appointed on my watch have been generally impressive,” the general said, and more civil servants are being trained to take jobs in far-flung districts. Petraeus has a team pursuing cases of Afghan corruption (including those fueled by lucrative U.S. contracts), and he says Karzai is cooperating. Karzai has also signed on to a Petraeus priority project, a program to train 10,000 Afghan local police under the aegis of the Interior Ministry. The program will provide security to areas without regular police, while also providing jobs to locals. However, the general does not want to discuss the issue of Karzai’s brother, Ahmed Wali, a powerful and controversial figure in Kandahar, whose machinations are blamed by many for tribal divisions that create openings for the Taliban.
Security gains needed Petraeus appears to be hoping that security gains will create a virtuous circle: As the economy picks up, villagers will turn against the Taliban, and Karzai may want to win their approval by performing better. Those gains may also affect Pakistan’s attitude toward giving the Taliban safe havens. If Afghanistan seems more secure, and the Taliban has little prospect of retaking power in Kabul, Pakistan may reassess its value as a future card in its conflict with India. And Petraeus, who meets regularly with Pakistani military and intelligence chiefs,
believes they now grasp that the militants threaten them, too. Part of the virtuous circle is a shift in the Afghan psyche. The general thinks the administration’s decision to stress a 2014 date for transition to Afghan control will have a positive effect on Afghan attitudes. The militants, he said, had convinced Afghans that Obama’s 7/11 start date for a drawdown meant Americans were “heading for the exits.” This made villagers afraid to stand up to the Taliban. Word has now spread of America’s longer commitment. Petraeus recalls that when he recently visited the rural village of Farah, he was astonished to find everyone was aware of the date shift. Residents told him, “We are happy to hear about 2014.” A shift in psyche, continued kinetics, a virtuous circle that shifts the thinking of Karzai and Pakistani generals — this appears to be the scenario that Petraeus hopes for. He says he is not “an optimist or a pessimist.” Instead, he repeats Obama’s mantra that Afghan progress is “fragile and reversible” and “must be solidified.” Perhaps this is a hedge against failure. Perhaps it is pragmatism. Maybe it is just warding off the evil eye. David Petraeus knows Afghanistan is much tougher than Iraq, and that the burden falls most heavily on his shoulders. I sense that he thinks success is possible, but he isn’t sure. — Trudy Rubin is a columnist for the Philadelphia Inquirer.

The young people who received the card, touched by its message of peace and goodwill, made a poster-sized Christmas card and delivered it to the police department, then stood outside singing Christmas carols.

From the Lawrence Daily World for Dec. 21, 1910: “Lawrence will have to content itself without a ‘white’ Christmas. YEARS According to J. C. Evans, the local AGO weather observer, there will be no IN 1910 moonlight sleigh rides for Lawrence young people on Christmas eve. While this will be a great disappointment to the small boys who have written Santa Claus for a sled, there seems to be little hope for them. The weather man’s opinion is based upon the lack of moisture in the atmosphere. While he does not say so, it is believed that the sinister influence of the reelection of a democratic sheriff in Douglas county is holding up the moisture without which there can be no Christmas snow.” “A ring, a ruby, a diamond were taken from Gustafson’s store this morning, the absence being immediately discovered. If same are returned before Christmas no questions will be asked, if not warrant will be sworn out for the guilty parties.” — Compiled by Sarah St. John

Missouri church to mark London blitz FULTON, MO. (AP) — Seventy years after it was hit by German bombers, a historic English church that was rebuilt in mid-Missouri will ring its bells in unison with those of St. Paul’s Cathedral in London. The 1676 Church of St. Mary the Virgin, Aldermanbury, was designed by the English architect Christopher Wren. It was heavily damaged on Dec. 29, 1940, when Germany bombed London in its largest air raid of World War II. St. Mary’s was later moved to Fulton, where Winston Churchill delivered his “Iron Curtain” speech at Westminster College in 1946. On Dec. 29, the bells of St. Mary’s will ring out at 12:15 p.m. while the bells of St. Paul’s Cathedral are rung at the same moment, 6:15 p.m. in London. Rob Havers, executive director of the National Churchill Museum at Westminster, said the event symbolizes AngloAmerican unity. The church was once frequented by William Shakespeare and John Milton, and Havers said it is as magnificent now as it was 300 years ago. It reached its current location after being dismantled in London — where it was never repaired after the raid — and moved to Fulton.

Flash mob provides some caroling cheer By Eric Adler The Kansas City Star
KANSAS CITY, MO. — As mobs go, it possibly was the most massive and musical in Kansas City history. Even George Frideric Handel would have stood for this Christmastime performance, when at least 450 people, and perhaps many more — young, old, most of them strangers, and beckoned solely by word-of-mouth or email to Crown Center — erupted among unsuspecting shoppers into an echoing and unrehearsed “choir flash mob” rendition of the “Hallelujah Chorus.” “How could you not be in the Christmas mood after that?” an elated Carol Havenner, 57, of Olathe said after the music ebbed. Worldwide, choir flash mobs have become a sensation, ever since May when commuters in a Brussels train station suddenly found themselves in the middle of a giant choral rendition of “I Want to Ride my Bicycle,” sung in multipart harmony with some singers acrobatically bouncing on the back tires of their bicycles up the station’s steps. Since them, choir flash mobs, mostly singing the “Hallelujah Chorus,” have
broken out in cities worldwide, including just this weekend in stores and malls and airports in Dallas, Orlando and Sioux Falls, S.D. Barely a minute after 2 p.m. Sunday, it was Kansas City’s turn. The brainchild of the event was Mission Hills resident Ann Sundeen, 48. A choir member when she was in high school and college, and currently singing at Visitation Church, Sundeen devised what she called a “random act of choral music” after viewing a choir flash mob video from Philadelphia. So she talked to her choir and e-mailed friends, all of whom did the same. Sue Tucker, 58, a massage therapist from Overland Park, heard about the event two days ago from a client, who heard about it from a friend. “I couldn’t get it off my mind,” Tucker said. “It’s my favorite song in the whole world.” It holds special memories for her. She said that for years, she and her father, now deceased, used to travel to Lindsborg, Kan., to hear Handel’s “Messiah.” What was meant to remain a secret among shoppers turned out to be anything but. By 1:30 p.m., Crown Center was mobbed with singers, many holding sheet music. As
2 o’clock ticked closer, people held their cell phones and digital cameras aloft to catch the moment. A band, Bill Drybread and his Merry Men of Christmas, had been on stage playing “Joy to the World” when, just before 2 p.m., anticipation grew. The band ceded the stage. Seth Farrow, 32, a Visitation choir member, stepped up. Nick Bideler, 24, and Jonathan Gregoire, 23, music graduate students at the University of Kansas, sat side-byside at the piano. Farrow raised his hands. The throng rose to its feet. The music, “Hallelujah! Hallelujah! King of kings and lord of lords” echoed throughout the mall. Three minutes later it was over. Captured by a professional videographer, a YouTube version of the event is titled “A Random Act of Choral Music Kansas City.” “My hope is that we will touch the hearts of shoppers and whoever sees it on YouTube,” Sundeen said just before the performance. “It’s been such a hard year for a lot of people.” On the third floor, one woman, overcome, cupped her face in her hands and wept. When the piece ended, the massive crowd cheered.

QB switches commitment from CU to KU By Matt Tait firstname.lastname@example.org
Berglund decommitted from Colorado after a switch in offense and personnel
It turns out there was a Plan B for Kansas University’s football program after all. One week after missing out on Zack Stoudt, the No. 2-ranked junior-college quarterback in the country who chose Mississippi over KU, reports surfaced Monday that Highlands Ranch, Colo., quarterback Brock Berglund, a senior at Valor Christian High who originally
Kansas assistant familiar with Cal
committed to Colorado, had switched his commitment from CU to Kansas. The Denver Post’s Ryan Casey reported that Berglund, 6-foot-4, 205 pounds, was not on board with CU’s plans to change its offense under new head coach Jon Embree, who replaced Dan Hawkins, the man who recruited Berglund. “Some of the changes in scheme and personnel are clearly different from my recruitment,” Berglund told the Post.
“Even though they may be in the best interest of the program, they do not represent the best fit for me personally.” Berglund continued: “I called coach Embree and explained my thoughts and feelings. I have decided to rescind my verbal commitment to CU and I have decided to verbally commit to the University of Kansas, where I am a better fit.” Kansas recruited Berglund hard throughout 2010, as both offensive coordinator Chuck
Long and cornerbacks coach Vic Shealy — who formerly coached at Air Force in Colorado Springs — were listed as KU’s lead recruiters for Berglund. The relationships he built with them, along with head coach Turner Gill, kept KU at the top of Berglund’s list throughout his recruitment. “The most important thing’s probably the people.... getting to know the coaches and things like that,” Berglund told Rivals.com’s Jon Kirby in June.
At the very least, adding Berglund gives KU some muchneeded depth at quarterback, where KU will retain part-time starters Quinn Mecham and Jordan Webb and welcome another three-star freshman, Michael Cummings, next season. Berglund has talked about graduating high school early and enrolling at the school of his choice in January. If that happens, the best-case scenario Please see QB, page 3B

Kurtis Townsend knows all there is to know about University of California basketball, having worked as a Golden Bears’ assistant coach from 1993 to ’97. His pick for the best player in school history should come as no surprise. “Jason Kidd, no question,” Townsend, Kansas University’s seventh-year aide, said of the 10time NBA allstar who currently plays for the Dallas Mavericks. “Kevin Johnson was very good. Lamond Murray and those guys who won a national championship Townsend (1959, NCAA runner-up in 1960) under coach (Pete) Newell, but that was a different era,” added Townsend. He coached point guard deluxe Kidd just one season — Kidd’s second and final season — at Cal. Kidd, whose freshman year ended with a Sweet 16 loss to KU in St. Louis, did not play all his home games at 11,877-seat Haas Pavilion, site of Wednesday’s 10 p.m. nonconference clash between the Jayhawks (10-0) and Bears (6-4). “We played mostly in the (Oakland) Coliseum to accommodate the larger crowds that Jason helped attract,” Townsend said. “Their current arena was once called Harmon Arena. They remodeled it and tried to do what we did with Allen, keep the traditional feel of the building, but make it more modern. It’s really a nice facility. “They won it (Pac-10) last year, so I’m sure the crowds have gotten better. My last year, we went to the Sweet 16, but didn’t win the league. We had good crowds but didn’t sell out every game. Stanford, UCLA … games like that we’d sell out.” Haas Arena should be loud as ever Wednesday with the No. 3ranked Jayhawks in town and Cal coach Mike Montgomery seeking his 600th career victory (against 270 losses). “He is an unbelievable coach,” Townsend said of Montgomery, now in his third year at Cal. He’s also coached college at Stanford (18 years) and eight years at Montana, to go with two seasons with the NBA’s Golden State Warriors. “He’s a good recruiter and a heck of a defensive coach. He has a nice little system that’s worked nicely for him,” Townsend said. “He had great teams at Stanford and went to the Final Four there.
Will Jayhawk guard be freshman of the year? Editor’s note: The following is an entry from the Conference Chatter blog, which follows features and trends around the Big 12, on KUsports.com.

KANSAS GUARD JOSH SELBY (32) PULLS UP FOR HIS FIRST BUCKET AS A JAYHAWK over USC guard Donte Smith during the first half. Selby scored 21 points, including the game-winning three-pointer, in KU’s 70-68 victory on Saturday at Allen Fieldhouse.
Before Saturday, the only time I saw Josh Selby play basketball was during Oct. 15’s Late Night in the Phog. And, all due respect to the scrimmage, evaluating a player in that type of sloppy setting is dangerous. Doesn’t paint a true picture. Saturday’s nailbiter — a 70-68 KU triumph over USC in Allen Fieldhouse — didn’t paint the complete picture of Selby, either. It was only his first game of playing college basketball after serving a nine-game suspension for accepting impermissible benefits. But Saturday gave us a pretty darn good idea of what kind of player Selby is. Selby’s 21-point outburst in 27 minutes was one of the most fearless performances I’ve seen from a KU freshman. The kid was not afraid, with 26 seconds left and Kansas down two, to receive the ball on the wing, fake a pass to his right to free up some space ever-soslightly and drill a game-winning, ice-in-the-veins threepointer. It was one of his five threes on a memorable day. By Saturday afternoon, Selby’s performance was the talk of the town. When people spoke about the freshman, it was like they were describing a religious experience: Selby the savior. Didn’t take long for the Twitter world to catch on to the hype. If you haven’t searched for #selbymovies, take five minutes to scroll down the hilarious list that describes Selby’s impact with fans. Whatever genre you want, it’s there. “Star Wars: Revenge of the Selby.” “Eternal Sunshine of the Selby Mind.” “Selbys on a Plane.” On Monday, I submitted “When Selby Met Sally.” I’m a sucker for classic rom coms; what can I say? Should Selby continue to improve, particularly on defense, he will undoubtedly be one of the best freshmen in the Please see SELBY, page 3B

COLLEGE BASKETBALL ROUNDUP
Duke rolls; Krzyzewski wins 879th The Associated Press
No. 1 Duke 98, Elon 72 DURHAM , N.C. — Kyle Singler scored 24 points to help Duke beat Elon on Monday night, moving coach Mike Krzyzewski into a tie for second place on the all-time wins list. Nolan Smith added 22 points as the Blue Devils (11-0) gave their Hall of Fame coach his 879th win in 36 seasons at Duke and Army. Krzyzewski is now tied with Dean Smith, who spent 36 seasons at rival North Carolina before retiring in 1997 as the winningest coach Division I history. Krzyzewski can pass Smith by beating North Carolina-Greensboro at the Greensboro Coliseum on Dec. 29. That would leave only Bobby Knight ahead of him, as Knight passed Smith with 902 wins before retiring almost three years ago. No. 4 Connecticut 76, Coppin State 64 HARTFORD, CONN. — Kemba Walker scored 20 points, and Connecticut ended a 12-day break for final exams by beating Coppin State. Freshman Jeremy Lamb added 16 points, and Alex Oriakhi had 12 points and seven rebounds for UConn (9-0). No. 5 Syracuse 97, Morgan State 55 SYRACUSE , N.Y. — Rick Jackson had 18 points and nine rebounds, reserve James Southerland added a career-high 18 points, and Syracuse beat Morgan State. No. 16 Memphis 68, Texas A&M-Corpus Christi 63 MEMPHIS , T ENN . — Joe Jackson scored a career-high 23 points, and Memphis pulled away just enough in the second half for a victory over Texas A&M-Corpus Christi. Will Coleman added 15 points and nine rebounds for the Tigers (9-1), while Charles Carmouche finished with 12 points. Jacksonville 71, No. 20 Florida 68 G A I N E S V I L L E , F L A . — Freshman Keith McDougald scored a career-high 18 points, including four free throws late in overtime, and Delwan Graham added two critical buckets to lead Jacksonville to an upset of Florida. McDougald hit both ends of a one-andone with 31.8 seconds remaining in overtime to give the Dolphins (7-3) a 69-66 lead and hit two more with 17.1 seconds remaining to provide the final margin. Big 12 women No. 2 Baylor 82, Clemson 40 N A S S A U , B A H A M A S — Brittney Griner scored 18 points in 21 minutes to lead Baylor to a rout of Clemson night in the Sunsplash Shootout. Makenzie Robertson added 13 points for the Lady Bears (11-1), who will play No. 23 Syracuse tonight. No. 21 Iowa State 93, Cal State Northridge 47 A MES , I OWA — Kelsey Bolte scored 16 points, and Iowa State held winless Cal State Northridge to five field goals in the first half en route to an easy victory.

UConn women can pass UCLA men tonight NEW YORK — UCLA’s 88-game winning streak had just been snapped by Notre Dame in 1974 when Bruins coach John Wooden was asked how long it would be before somebody beat the streak. “I have no idea how long it will be before somebody else wins that many. I know it takes at least three years,” he replied. Try nearly 37 years. And the University of Connecticut women’s team can do it tonight. Coach Geno Auriemma and his players — just Huskies, never the Lady Huskies — have been so dominant that some in the sports world have even suggested their overwhelming success is no good for the game. Auriemma took the debate a step further Sunday after UConn’s 88th straight victory, questioning whether there is a gender bias against his team. “The reason everybody is having a heart attack the last four or five days is a bunch of women are threatening to break a men’s record, and everybody is all up in arms about it,” he said. While no men’s team has approached UCLA’s record set from 1971-74, Auriemma and UConn once came close. The Huskies won 70 straight in the early 2000s before tripping up against Villanova. That was a record that many thought would never be achieved again. Until now. UConn, which hasn’t lost since the 2008 NCAA tournament, will pass UCLA with a win over No. 22 Florida State tonight.
COLLEGE BASKETBALL MU guard out 2 weeks COLUMBIA, MO. — Missouri point guard Phil Pressey will be sidelined at least two weeks after breaking his right ring finger in practice. Pressey, a freshman, started the last two games for the ninth-ranked Tigers after sophomore Michael Dixon was suspended for violating team rules. Dixon is practicing with the team but his status was unclear for Wednesday’s game against No. 21 Illinois in St. Louis.
Duke men No. 1, but lose vote Duke is again No. 1 in the Associated Press men’s basketball poll, although for the first time in three weeks it’s not unanimous. Central Florida joins the Top 25 for the first time in school history. The Blue Devils were off last week and received all but one of the first-place votes Monday from the 65-member national media panel. No. 2 Ohio State has the other first-place vote and is followed by Kansas, Connecticut and Syracuse. Completing the top 10 are Pittsburgh, San Diego State, Villanova, Missouri and Georgetown.
Pitino to coach Puerto Rico MIAMI — Louisville’s Rick Pitino will coach Puerto Rico’s national team next summer in hopes of qualifying for the 2012 Olympics.
UConn women still No. 1 One more milestone for the Connecticut women. A day after they won their 88th straight game, they were ranked No. 1 by the Associated Press for the 50th consecutive week. It is the 151st time the UConn women have led the rankings. The Huskies received all 40 first-place votes in Monday’s poll.
COLLEGE FOOTBALL Friedgen fired at Maryland COLLEGE PARK, MD. — Ralph Friedgen was fired as Maryland’s football coach Monday, effective after the Military Bowl on Dec. 29. Friedgen received $2 million to cover the
final year of his contract in 2011. Athletic director Kevin Anderson intended to immediately form a search committee to find Friedgen’s replacement and acknowledged that former Texas Tech coach Mike Leach is on his preliminary list. During his 10 years at his alma mater, Friedgen went 74-50.

Kent State hires Ohio State aide KENT, OHIO — Darrell Hazell made some history at Kent State just by being hired, becoming the school’s first black head football coach. “I’m proud and excited to be named Kent State’s head football coach,” Hazell said Monday after becoming the first minority to head the school’s football program in its 90-year history.
BASEBALL Ankiel, Nationals agree WASHINGTON — Outfielder Rick Ankiel and the Washington Nationals have agreed to a $1.5 million, one-year contract. The deal announced Monday includes $1.25 million in performance bonuses: $200,000 each for 100, 150, 200, 250 and 300 plate appearances, and $250,000 for 375. The 30-year-old left-handed hitter batted .232 with six homers and 24 RBIs this year with Kansas City and Atlanta.
Kearns returns to Indians CLEVELAND — Even as he packed his bags for New York, Austin Kearns knew there was a good chance he would be back in Cleveland. Kearns, who spent four months with the Indians last season before he was traded to the Yankees, returned to the club Monday by agreeing to a $1.3 million, one-year contract. Kearns made Cleveland’s roster out of training camp and was with the Indians until July 30, when he was dealt for pitcher Zach McAllister.
Nolasco gets $26.5M deal with Fish MIAMI — Marlins right-hander Ricky Nolasco has agreed to a $26.5 million, three-year contract, a person familiar with the negotiations said Monday. The person spoke to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the contract won’t become final until Nolasco passes a physical.
Hall finalizes deal with Astros HOUSTON — Free agent infielder Bill Hall has finalized a $3.25 million, one-year contract with the Houston that includes a mutual option for 2012.
Crain signs with ChiSox CHICAGO — Jesse Crain can’t help it: Pitching for the White Sox is going to be a bit odd for a reliever who has played his entire sevenyear career for AL Central rival Minnesota. Of course, Crain said, the Twins didn’t make an effort to keep him before he signed threeyear, $13-million offer with Chicago.
NFL TO finished for year for Bengals CINCINNATI — Terrell Owens is having surgery to repair torn cartilage in his left knee, ending his season. The Bengals receiver hurt the knee a couple of weeks ago, but kept playing. He aggravated it while making a cut on the opening series of a 19-17 win over Cleveland on Sunday and left the field.

THE QUOTE “The Husker volleyball team’s season ended with a controversial loss to Washington.

could include Berglund stepping in right away as the Jayhawks’ starter. “Our offense uses me under center and out of the gun,” Berglund told ESPN.com in March. “We use a lot of playaction and run a lot of option through play-action as well. I would say I’m pretty mobile. I’m 205 (pounds) right now, but I think I can get to 210-215 pretty easily. I’m just focused on getting stronger, faster, and increasing my arm strength right now.” Berglund, who guided his prep team to a Class 4A state title earlier this month, visited KU in June for a seven-onseven camp. His time in
Lawrence gave him a chance to meet with Long, Shealy and Gill. He also toured the football complex, which made a lasting impression. “I think the facilities here are amazing,” he told Kirby at the time. “I’ve really never seen anything like it. I’ve been to some big schools, and (there’s been) nothing like this.” Rivals ranks Berglund as the 13th best dual-threat QB in the Class of 2011. Berglund nearly committed to UCLA this summer, but chose in-state CU over Boise State, Colorado State, Duke, Kansas, Kansas State, San Diego State, Tulsa, Utah, Washington State and Wyoming.

country and a potential lottery pick in next year’s NBA Draft. Time to look into the crystal college ball for now. Will Selby end up being the NCAA’s best freshman this year? Quite possibly. But he’ll have some dynamite freshmen he needs to hold off, even in the Big 12. Here’s a list of other potential top freshmen in the country by season’s end: Terrence Jones, Kentucky: Is it any surprise the top three scorers on John Calipari’s 8-2 Wildcats are diaper dandies? Jones tops all freshmen in the country with 18.9 points per game and is pretty close to the top in rebounds per game (10) as well. Jared Sullinger, Ohio State: ESPN analyst Doug Gottlieb called Sullinger the best freshman in the country over the weekend after the Buckeyes bruiser went for 30 points and 19 boards in a victory over South Carolina. Gottlieb went a step farther and called Ohio State the best team in the country. Wonder how Duke and Kansas feel about that. There’s no denying Sullinger’s impact, though. The 6-foot-9, 280pound behemoth is averaging 18.5 points and 9.6 rebounds for No. 2 OSU. Brandon Knight, Kentucky: For the second consecutive season, the Wildcats have a top-10 recruit running the point guard as a freshman (like John Wall in 2009-10). Knight, not as much of a driver/creator as Wall, has responded with 17.1 points per game this year. Knight has to cut down on his turnovers (38 in 10 games), though, which currently outweigh his assist totals (37). Kyrie Irving, Duke: Had Irving not suffered a foot injury earlier this month, he might

I like him a lot as a person and respect him a lot as a coach.” The Bears, who have averaged 7,611 fans in six home dates, own a 4-2 home record, with losses to San Diego State (77-57) and Southern Miss (80-78) to go with wins over Cal StateNorthridge, New Mexico, UC Davis and Cal Poly. The Bears are led by 6-8 junior Harper Kamp (13.1 ppg) and 6-3 junior Jorge Gutierrez (12.6 ppg). “It’s just a great institution,” Townsend said of Cal. “The academics are really good. It’s a beautiful area. It doesn’t get much better than Berkeley. My memories were fond because it’s the first job I ever had in college. It was a dream come true for me to coach at that level. With that and being pretty good, it was nice. Of course, it was home for me.” Townsend grew up in the Bay Area. He came to Cal from Willow Glen (Calif.) High School. “It’s going to be great to be back,” Townsend said. He and the Jayhawks arrived early Monday evening. “I love it back there. It’s one of the prettiest places in the country to live. The weather is always good. There’s a lot to do. It will be great to see some family and friends.”
Any seafood dining recommendations for fans? “Scott’s Seafood in Jack London Square. Kincaid’s is a place we’ll eat at,” he said of the restaurant in Oakland the Jayhawks flocked to at 7 p.m. Monday. “The absolutely best for me is Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco because it’s so fresh, and they catch it every day.”

Selby honored: KU’s Josh Selby on Monday was named Big 12 rookie of the week. Selby scored 21 points and hit the game-winning shot in Saturday’s 70-68 victory over USC. He finished 5-of-11 from the field, 5-of-8 from three. Selby became the first KU freshman to earn rookie of the week accolades since Xavier Henry was named three times last season. Khris Middleton of Texas A&M was named player of the week. ●
Taylor up for Cousy Award: KU junior Tyshawn Taylor is one of 66 candidates for the Bob Cousy Award, which goes to the country’s top point guard. Big 12 guards on the list: Taylor, A.J. Walton (Baylor), Alec Burks (Colorado), Diante Garrett (Iowa State), Jacob Pullen (Kansas State), Michael Dixon, Phil Pressey (Missouri) and Keiton Page (Oklahoma State).

When she does not take care of it as often as she should, it becomes a little unattractive. I am no fashion expert, but I believe that waxing would be a better option. How do I bring this up without upsetting her? — Anonymous or I’d be in Big Trouble
you of George Clooney. But she may be unaware that her stubble is visible to others and should be told. Waxing and depilatories would do a better job, and if she is unwilling to maintain that regimen, she can look into laser hair removal or electrolysis. For the holidays, present her with a gift certificate to a waxing salon or a laser clinic, and tell her she deserves to be pampered.

College tuition never seems to get cheaper. The cost of higher education has been rising far faster than the rate of inflation for decades now, saddling many students with staggering loans before they even enter the workforce. “Price of Admission: America’s College Debt Crisis” (8 p.m., CNBC) examines the peculiarity of student loans. Unlike mortgages or credit-card obligations, they carry few consumer protections. According to this report, studentloan debt cannot be refinanced or wiped out via bankruptcy. In some cases, young people have died, leaving their parents and families in the lurch. “Debt” also reports that colleges, both traditional and for-profit, have been hiding the rate of default among their students to keep the flow of government loan money coming their way. A flow that “Debt” argues may be unsustainable. ● Because I’m not in the gossip racket or make my living celebrating celebrities, I rarely question the wisdom or timing of an installment of “E True Hollywood Story” (9 p.m. E!). But tonight’s profile of Sarah, duchess of York, had me scratching my head. I mean, she’s not even the world’s most famous Fergie anymore. ● “Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel” (9 p.m., HBO) glances back at the biggest stories of 2010. ● The three-hour special “Living in the Time of Jesus” (7 p.m., National Geographic) combines history and archaeology to examine the day-to-day reality of life at the time of the Nativity. ● Still searching for that stocking stuffer for the sports fan who has everything? Among the new DVDs on sale right now is “Baseball’s Greatest Games: The 1960 World Series Game 7” (A&E Home Entertainment). The DVD offers fans a chance to see baseball greats Mickey Mantle, Yogi Berra, Roger Maris and Roberto Clemente at work. It’s also a wonderful example of sports television broadcasting in its infancy. Bob Prince and Mel Allen share announcing duties, but merely trade spots and do not interact. Their single-voice approach perfectly complements the rudimentary camerawork. My only quibble is that the period TV commercials have been edited out of this presentation. That would have made it perfect.
Tonight’s other highlights ● Christmas cheer proves contagious on “Glee” (7 p.m., Fox). ● A winner glides to the finish line on “Skating with the Stars” (7 p.m., ABC). ● A marine’s murder may be linked to former comrades on “NCIS: Los Angeles” (8 p.m., CBS). ● “Saturday Night Live Presents: A Very Gilly Christmas” (8 p.m., NBC) offers a collection of skits from seasons past. ● Kevin Pollak hosts “Million Dollar Money Drop” (8 p.m., Fox). ● Stephanie’s parents sense something’s up on “No Ordinary Family” (8 p.m., ABC). ● “The Calling,” profiling the religious leaders of tomorrow, concludes on “Independent Lens” (8 p.m., PBS). ● Alicia’s firm takes on healthcare bullies on “The Good Wife” (9 p.m., CBS). ● A football star dies under mysterious circumstances on “Detroit 1-8-7” (9 p.m., ABC).

For Tuesday, Dec. 21: This year, the theme of the unexpected surrounds you. Don't fight the course of events, and you'll see the light at the end of the tunnel, if not the end itself. If you are single, even if you are sure this person is "it," take at least a year to commit. If you are attached, the two of you need to re-establish some basics, resulting from your inner reflection. Trust in the process. Cancer often challenges you.

Dear Vet: Nancy sounds like she’s had a life of emotional turmoil. The fact that her son resembles another man is not proof, but the child deserves to have an accurate medical history. You may be able to convince Nancy to discuss this with her son, but you should not take any action on your own. As for the various sexual assaults, there are statutes of limitation on reporting such crimes. The best thing you could do for Nancy is encourage her to get into counseling to deal with the trauma of her past.

Dear Annie: I am living with the girl I fell in love with 40 years ago. “Nancy” and I were separated during the Vietnam War. Last year, we reconnected, divorced our respective spouses and began planning a future together. I told Nancy I wanted an honest relationship, and she agreed. She told me she was sexually abused by her boss’s son and never filed a complaint. Later, she was gang raped by three men. She didn’t report that, either. Then she told me that while I was away in the Army, my now-deceased father raped her. She never mentioned this to anyone, but it was the reason she ended our relationship. She married a guy who cheated on her, and they divorced. While living with her second husband-to-be, she had an affair with his best friend and became pregnant. When I visited her hometown, I met the man she had the affair with and realized how much her son resembles him. The second ex-husband raised both of her children from her first marriage, as well as the child she had while living with him. I think he deserves to know if he is the biological father of this child. I also think rapes and abuse should be brought up to the authorities. But Nancy doesn’t want to make waves. She especially doesn’t want to hurt her

With the Metrodome unusable because of a roof collapse, the game was moved to the University of Minnesota. TCF Bank Stadium was about 80 percent full, with snowballs flying from the seats — sometimes hitting players — and plenty of frolicking in the flakes. Favre wasn’t even supposed to play. His sprained throwing shoulder hurt too much for him to practice this week, and his NFL-record starts streak of 297 regular-season games was already over after sitting out the previous week. But after feeling better when he woke up on Monday, according to the Vikings, Favre wanted to try.
