Commissioners likely to consider issue next month By Chad Lawhorn

Having a pig as a best friend is great, Lawrence resident Ehren Penix can attest. Now, he just wants it to be legal. Penix is lobbying Lawrence city commissioners to change the city’s animal code to allow for potbellied pigs as pets, They’re including really gentle his nearly and really 1-year old 70-pound good comfriend, panions.

City Hall staff members have been rooting around on the issue, but haven’t yet offered a recommendation on whether the city code should be changed to al-

No go on Christmas snow By Alex Parker

If you were dreaming of a white Christmas, well, keep dreaming. The weather won’t cooperate for a winter wonderland on Christmas Day, as temperatures in Lawrence are predicted to creep near 50 degrees, with a high of 48 and a low of 25. It’s a far cry from 2009, when a Christmas Eve blizzard dumped 8.5 inches on Lawrence. “The forecast for the next seven days is dry,” said Matt Wolters, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Topeka. “The storm systems will pass to the north and south of Kansas, so there really isn’t a very good chance for precipitation in the next seven days.” Wolters said the outlook is for a warmer winter this year, but there isn’t much data to point to whether the area will get much snowfall. Last December brought less snow than normal, and 16.8 inches of

snowfall in January accounted for most of the area’s precipitation, Wolters said. As people on Massachusetts Street wrapped up their Christmas shopping Friday afternoon, they said the warm temperatures were like coal in a stocking. “It’s always fun to have a white Christmas,” said state Rep. Paul Davis, shopping bags in hand. “It’s an added dimension of the season. If it means we’re not going to have any ice, I’m OK with it.” “It’s a little lame,” said Jenny Lane, who recently moved from Lawrence to Lenexa. “I’d definitely prefer snow. ... It’s traditional.” The 2009 blizzard, she said, “was so much fun.” Her 6-year-old daughter, Samantha, said she’d prefer a snowy Christmas. But she’s not shedding any tears. “I get to play on the computer,” she said. As for Santa, Samantha doesn’t think the lack of snow will affect his deliveries. “It’s not going to be as slippery,” she said.

BECKY WISDOM, CENTER, IS SURPRISED by Christmas carolers Friday as she answers the door to her southwest Lawrence home.

When Becky Wisdom looked out her front door, she saw dozens of smiling people clutching sheet music. “I wondered, ‘How did this all happen?’” Wisdom later said. Wisdom turned 69 on Friday and has been fighting liver cancer. Her friends were there as a

surprise. The crowd burst into the “Happy Birthday” song and followed it up with Christmas classics such as “Silent Night” and “Jingle Bell Rock.” After a few minutes, they were invited in from the cold, but they continued to sing. Her son and grandchildren stood next to her, catching Wisdom’s infectious smile.

The singers included children and adults, not all of whom knew Wisdom personally. Some just wanted to do a little good. Brandy Hurrelbrink organized the singing, corralling people via Facebook from Wisdom’s quilting club and three area churches: Clinton Parkway Assembly of God Church, First Please see CAROLING, page 2A

Shawnee allow the keeping of one potbellied pig per household. Kansas City, Mo., also allows potbellied pigs but requires the animal be kept at least 200 feet away from any neighboring home. Manhattan, Salina and Topeka do not allow potbellied pigs. City commissioners haven’t yet set a date to consider the issue, but Wagner said staff members hope to in January. Wagner said commissioners may need additional information about some issues such as what type of fencing is adequate to secure a pig in a yard, and also how the city would deal with pigs that are either turned loose or escape from their pens. “There is some concern that this could be like the little chickens or ducks at Christmas time,” Wagner said. “They’re cute while they’re little, but if they get too big are we going to have a problem with a feral pig?” Penix said he thinks most of

the concerns city leaders may have are really more about irresponsible pet owners, which can occur with any type of animal. He said the city shouldn’t stop responsible pet owners from owning a potbellied pig because traditional pets aren’t always an option for everyone. Penix said he got Starky because he is allergic to dogs, but did so without realizing the pigs weren’t legal in the city. He’s been allowed to keep the animal while the city considers whether to change the law. And yes, you may see Starky and Penix out for a walk someday. “I have a Jayhawk leash and harness for him,” Penix said. “You wouldn’t believe how many people stop us and say they used to own a pig or knew somebody who did. People love giving him treats, and trust me, he loves getting them.”

celebrated Christmas early with the help of the entire community. Wisdom’s son, Scott Hoy, was in on the surprise and brought over three of Wisdom’s grandchildren. Wisdom actually discouraged her family members from coming over on her birthday because there would be two days of family gatherings over Christmas weekend. “She probably was wondering why we came over even though she said not to,” Hoy said.

Wisdom thought the caroling was something special and was determined to have more special birthdays in the future. “Let me tell you, I expect to see more birthdays,” Wisdom said. “I do believe God is going to heal me.” Did she hope for more caroling next year? “I think you can only do this once,” Wisdom said, laughing. “It is a great birthday present. It’s very, very nice.”

It will contain 50 percent more machines and 30 percent more gambling tables than are in the current building. “These are the friendliest people I’ve ever seen,” Warren said of the staff.

N.Y. lawmaker renews call to halt lab move


Suicide bombs shake Damascus, kill 44 Two car bombers blew themselves up Friday outside the heavily guarded compounds of Syria’s intelligence agencies, killing at least 44 people and wounding dozens more in a brazen attack on the powerful security directorates, authorities said. State-run TV said the al-Qaida terrorist network was possibly to blame for the first suicide car bombings in the nine-month uprising against authoritarian President Bashar Assad. The opposition, however, immediately questioned the government’s account and hinted the regime itself could have been behind the attack, noting it came during a visit by Arab League observers investigating Assad’s bloody crackdown of the popular revolt. The government has long contended that the turmoil in Syria this year is not an uprising but the work of terrorists and foreign-backed armed gangs. 2 | NEW MEXICO

Heavy snow closes roads, delays flights

By Frank Eltman Associated Press

GARDEN CITY, N.Y. — A New York congressman wants to take the “For Sale” sign off Plum Island. In a letter this week, Rep. Timothy Bishop argues it is ludicrous for the federal government to be spending as much as $1 billion to construct a new laboratory in Manhattan, Kan., to study animal diseases that could devastate the country’s livestock industry when a “perfectly good” facility already exists off the tip of eastern Long Island. The Long Island Democrat, who previously has criticized

He adds that plans to sell the New York is-

Heavy snow from a winter storm blanketed parts of the West on Friday, stranding motorists throughout New Mexico and delaying holiday travelers trying to fly in and out of Albuquerque and Denver. The snow and high winds struck the region Thursday and forced dozens of drivers off Interstate 40 after severe conditions made driving in western New Mexico nearly impossible. “If you don’t have (four-wheel drive) and you just have two-wheel ... you’re either going to spin or stay stuck,” stranded motorist Tarquin Wilding told KOATTV while in Grants, N.M., on his way to Santa Fe. Grants and parts of western New Mexico were slammed with more than a foot of snow by Friday morning, the National Weather Service reported. A winter storm warning for the state expired in the afternoon, but meteorologists said the snow wasn’t expected to clear up until the weekend. Some parts of the state saw 17 inches of snow as state and local police responded to dozens of minor accidents. No major injuries were reported. 3 | LONDON

Palace: Prince Philip given heart stent Queen Elizabeth II’s husband has undergone treatment for a blocked coronary artery, British royal officials said Friday. Buckingham Palace said Prince Philip, 90, was taken from Sandringham, the queen’s sprawling estate in rural Norfolk, to the cardiac unit at Papworth Hospital in Cambridge earlier Friday for “precautionary tests” after suffering chest pains. The palace refused to confirm if Philip had suffered a heart attack, saying only that tests at the hospital showed a blocked coronary artery was causing Philip’s discomfort.

Romney made conservative donations In the Republican primary struggle to define the most reliably conservative presidential candidate, Mitt Romney has put his money where his mouth is. Over the past six years and two presidential campaigns, Romney has donated at least $260,000 from his family charity foundation to GOP causes and influential conservative groups that could deepen his ties within the party and establish his credibility on the right. Romney’s campaign said there was no hidden motivation behind his contributions. Romney gave $100,000 last year to the George W. Bush Presidential Library in Dallas, according to tax records of the Tyler Charitable Foundation, a multimillion dollar Boston-based charity headed by Romney and his wife, Ann. The former president has said publicly he will not endorse any candidate in the Republican primary, but the Romney campaign is studded with former Bush political veterans and appears to lead its rivals in financial support from former Bush fundraisers.

ZIGZAGGING STRINGS OF CHRISTMAS LIGHTS CONNECT a neighborhood of homes and trees just north of Quail Run School on Woodridge Drive. Chad Dodd and Chris Eagle are the neighbors who provide and install the lights each year.

Love of lights spreads like wildfire Two residents deck entire neighborhood By Aaron Couch

It started with several strings of lights and two houses. It grew to encompass an entire street. “Some kids talk about them being the zigzag lights,” said Chad Dodd. “To me, it’s a web of lights.”

Dodd and Chris Eagle are the men behind that web of lights now draping houses and trees just north of Quail Run School on Woodridge Drive. The men, who are across-the-street neighbors, got the idea about five years ago after Eagle remembered a section of Kansas City’s Mission Hills neighborhood

that had a similar decoration scheme. “I mentioned to Chad, ‘Hey we ought to do that,’” Eagle said. “He said ‘I’m game, let’s go.”’ That first year, only their houses were involved. Dodd and Eagle scaled trees and climbed ladders, zigzagging white lights across the street to connect their houses. They got some strange looks, but when

it got dark and the lights went on, people were impressed. The next year a few neighbors asked to be included, and a few more the year after that. Now the men go up and down their street, asking who would like to be included. All but one household said yes this year. The men provide the lights and install them, only asking each neighbor provide an Please see LIGHTS, page 4A

State health department reports first cases of flu, urges vaccination By Karrey Britt

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment reported Friday that it has identified the first cases of flu this season. The cases were two adults from northwest Kansas who are in the same workplace and who did not receive a vaccination. Five co-workers also were ill with flu symptoms. KDHE secretary and state health

officer Robert Moser urges everyone to get a flu vaccination, noting that it’s not too late. “Although flu activity is now low, it normally rises during the holidays before peaking around February,” he said. “Influenza can continue to circulate through spring, and the flu can be unpredictable.”

Lawrence Piano Studio

Anyone 6 months and older is recommended to receive an annual flu vaccination. Additional ways to avoid spreading influenza include covering coughs and sneezes, washing your hands and staying home when sick. Flu symptoms include fever, headache, extreme tiredness, dry cough and muscle aches. Complications can include pneumonia, ear and sinus infections and dehydration; influenza may also worsen

other chronic conditions. Older people, pregnant women, young children and people with certain health conditions are at high risk for serious complications from the flu. Influenza was documented as a cause of death for 31 Kansans in the 2009-2010 flu season and for 14 last year. But flu is often not listed on death certificates because laboratory tests may not show flu by the time pneumonia or other complica-

“Plum Island is not the long-term solution that our country needs to protect our food supply,” Gov. Sam Brownback said. “Building the National Bio and AgroDefense Facility is integral not only to the security of our nation’s food supply but also to our capacity to respond to acts of terror directed against the American people.” The Department of Homeland Security, which was formed after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, took responsibility for the research laboratory at Plum Island in 2003. Scientists there study highly dangerous and contagious pathogens that could wipe out the nation’s cattle or hog populations if they were released. The site was chosen in the 1950s because it was located off the mainland of the United States. Homeland Security officials determined several years ago that the aging facility may not be suitable for continued research and studied several sites around the country, settling on Manhattan, Kan. That lab is not supposed to open until at least 2018, so DHS officials in the interim have spent $35 million on security and other enhancements at Plum Island in recent years. Although Plum Island was considered as a possible site for the new lab, officials ruled it out after Bishop and others opposed plans to upgrade the laboratory to a Bioscience Level-4 facility, which means it could also study diseases dangerous to humans. The Kansas site will be a Level-4 facility, while Plum Island, which is not expected to close until at least 2018, remains at Level-3. “Simply upgrading the outdated Cold War-era Plum



Homeland Security officials determined several years ago that the aging facility may not be suitable for continued research and studied several sites around the country, settling on Manhattan, Kan. Island Animal Disease Center is not an option for many reasons, among them that the local community, led by Rep. Bishop, sought and received a commitment from DHS in 2003 not to build a BSL4 lab on Plum Island,” said Rep. Lynn Jenkins, R-Kan. “His latest argument that he is opposed to building NBAF in order to save money is a faulty, disturbing, and transparent argument.” Bishop counters there are existing Level-4 facilities at Fort Detrick, Md., and elsewhere, that could handle the research on human diseases envisioned for Kansas. He argues that in hard economic times, moving research to Kansas is unnecessary. “One of the things I’ve been elected to do is protect the needs and interests of my own district and there are 200 jobs at this facility,” Bishop said. “I would also suggest that Kansas’ interest is no more enlightened than my interest. If they’re going to accuse me of playing parochial politics, I could easily level the same accusation against them. From a fiscal point of view, given the difficulty we had, this is a facility we don’t need. “So am I trying to protect local jobs? You’re damn right I am. But do I also believe there are significant, larger national interests at play here, absolutely.” Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, a member of the appropriations and agriculture committees, also opposes the move to Kansas. The appropriations com-

Holiday Pittie Party! All this month, the Lawrence Humane Society will waive all adoption fees for wonderful bully breeds waiting on a forever home. Every adoption includes spay/neuter, microchip, collar, tag, and vaccinations. Although the adoption fee is waived, adoption requirements must be met. These beautiful dogs are eager to “go home for the holidays.” Common stereotypes have been unfair to these breeds, like the American Staffordshire Terrier and American Bull Terrier -- they are highly intelligent, extremely loyal, and form close bonds with humans. With proper socialization, bully breeds get along very well with other dogs and cats in home environments. Their handsome, soft, short coat is not prone to shedding. They also make excellent jogging partners! All bully breed pets at the Lawrence Humane Society have completed special training by professionals experienced with bully breeds. Plus, each adoption includes 5 weeks of training for new owners at Pit Bull E.D.U. at no cost.

mittee is holding up $50 million in funding for the Kansas laboratory in next year’s budget pending the outcome of a National Academy of Science study on the feasibility of placing the lab in the nation’s heartland. A previous study identified a 70 percent chance that a release of foot-and-mouth disease could occur at the new facility during its projected 50-year lifespan. Damages to the livestock industry could total as much as $50 billion if a release were to occur, officials have said. The academy is again studying the feasibility of placing the lab in Kansas; a report is due next summer. Meanwhile, the General Services Administration had originally promised a draft environmental impact statement on the proposed sale of Plum Island in the summer of 2010, with public hearings to follow. The report was delayed in part because officials were obtaining additional information on the 840-acre pork-chop shaped island from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and others. The draft is now expected in January or February. Bishop also derides notions that any sale of Plum Island will offset the costs of moving to Kansas. One eastern Long Island real estate expert has estimated that the island could fetch as much as $50 million, far less than the estimated $650 million for the new laboratory. “Sheer fantasy,” Bishop said of the idea that the Plum Island sale would cover the cost of the new lab. He adds that the estimates don’t include the cost of possible environmental remediation at the island, where secret Cold War-era chemical warfare testing is believed to have taken place. “You would have to do at least $80 million to $100 million worth of environmental cleanup, so there’s no way the numbers add up at all,” Bishop said.


Santa passes poll with flying colors By Connie Cass Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Why do kids believe a chubby guy in a flying sleigh can deliver joy across America? Because their parents do. A whopping 84 percent of grownups were once children who trusted in Santa’s magic, and lots cling to it still. Things are changing fast these days, with toddlers wishing for iPads, grade schoolers emailing their Christmas lists and moms wrestling over bargain toys at midnight sales. Despite all the pressures on the rituals of the season, an AP-GfK poll confirms that families are sticking by old St. Nick. “It’s important for kids to have something to believe in,” says great-grandmother Wanda Smith of Norman, Okla.


outlet. The work takes more than 20 hours over Thanksgiving weekend. “It’s three days of us with a 40-foot ladder climbing trees,” Eagle said. Eagle and Dodd have been able to get more ambitious each year because of their dayafter-Christmas shopping trips to Sam’s Club to buy whatever industrial-grade Christmas lights were left. But they’ve run into a problem. Sam’s Club and other stores have stopped carrying the classic Christmas lights they love in favor of LED lights. “Chris and I are kind of traditionalists when it comes to lights,” Dodd said. “People keep asking if we’ll be updating to LEDs. We

And so they do. Year after year, Santa Claus survives the scoffers and the Scrooges and the 6-year-old playground skeptics. He endures belittling commercials that portray him shopping at Target or taking directions from an iPhone. He shrugs off scolds who say his bagful of toys overshadows the reason for the season. Two-thirds of parents with kids under 18 say Santa’s an important part of their celebrations this year. Moms, especially, have a soft spot for the man in red — 71 percent of them say he’s important, and that’s a big jump from 58 percent just five years ago. His overall popularity is up slightly from an AP-AOL poll in 2006, before the recession hit. In these bleaker times of homes lost to foreclosure and parents sweating

out their next paychecks, the poll shows Santa riding high with families both wealthy and poor. In multicultural America, Father Christmas isn’t just for Christians any more. Three-fourths of non-Christian adults say they believed in Santa when they were children. And half feel he’s important to their holiday celebrations now. Developmental psychologist Cyndy Scheibe, who’s been interviewing kids about Santa since 1986, said lots of Jewish children told her that Santa Claus was real, even though he didn’t stop at their houses on Christmas Eve. And many non-Christian parents embrace Santa because they see Christmas serving as a secular as well as religious holiday in the U.S., she said.

keep saying no.” But not to worry: They have a friend in the electronics business searching for a supplier to keep them in oldfashioned lights. In the meantime, the two are happy with their work even though it requires daily maintenance. Squirrels and other rodents chew on the lights, and the wind causes damage, too.

“It’s like any undertaking. Anything worth doing is worth overdoing,” Eagle said. If you’d like to see the lights, you have until the end of the year. Eagle and Dodd will be spending New Year’s weekend dismantling their display. — Reporter Aaron Couch can be reached at 832-7217. Follow him at aaroncouch.

Juveniles charged with armed robbery

Teen injured after crashing Porsche

Douglas County prosecutors Friday charged two juvenile suspects who were apprehended Thursday in connection with a reported armed robbery at a Lawrence apartment. District Attorney Charles Branson said Friday prosecutors had charged each juvenile with two counts of aggravated robbery, three counts of aggravated assault, one count of aggravated burglary and one count of conspiracy. He said both juveniles are 17 years old. At 3:30 p.m. Thursday, a resident in an apartment in the 1900 block of Stewart Avenue alleged two suspects robbed him and three other people, said Sgt. Matt Sarna, a Lawrence police spokesman. The victim told police one of the suspects was armed with what appeared to be a sawedoff shotgun and that they took cash and a laptop computer from the apartment. No injuries were reported. About six hours later, officers took two suspects into custody after one suspect was spotted near Ninth and Iowa streets, police said. Branson said the two boys will have detention hearings next week.

A 16-year-old Lawrence boy was taken to a Topeka hospital early Friday after he lost control of his mother’s 2012 Porsche just northwest of Lawrence and struck a tree, a Douglas County Sheriff’s spokesman said. Sgt. Steve Lewis said Josh Boisen was driving north on East 1100 Road, an extension of Folks Road, about 4 a.m. when he lost control of the car, struck the tree and totaled the vehicle. It occurred at the intersection of North 1700 Road, which turns into Peterson Road. Lawrence-Douglas County Fire Medical workers extricated the injured Boisen from the vehicle, and he was flown to Stormont-Vail Regional Health Center. A Stormont-Vail spokeswoman said Friday hospital officials were not authorized to disclose his condition because of the hospital’s patient privacy policy. Lewis said officers believe speed was a factor in the crash, but it was still under investigation Friday morning. Boisen was the car’s only occupant.




INJURY ACCIDENTS • A 36-year-old Lawrence woman was taken to Lawrence Memorial Hospital on Friday morning after a two-vehicle accident at McDonald Drive and Rockledge Road, just north of Sixth and Iowa streets. Sgt. Ted Bordman, a Lawrence police spokesman, said a 28-year-old Lawrence man who was headed east on Rockledge Road in a 1998 Saturn car stopped at a stop sign and then pulled out in front of the woman’s 1987 BMW she was driving south on McDonald Drive. The crash occurred at 7:55 a.m. Friday. The woman’s injuries were not life-threatening, Bordman said. No one else was injured. Officers did cite the man for inattentive driving. • A Tulsa, Okla., man was injured in a two-vehicle accident Thursday evening south of Lawrence on U.S. Highway 59. Sgt. Steve Lewis, a Douglas County Sheriff’s spokesman, said Daniel Mailath, 33, of Tulsa, was injured when his 2000 Lexus struck the back of a vehicle driven by Bradley Howard,

46, of Lawrence. The crash occurred at 6:35 p.m. Thursday near the intersection with North 400 Road. Howard had stopped his northbound vehicle as he was waiting for another vehicle to turn west onto North 400 Road. Mailath was taken to Lawrence Memorial Hospital, where he was treated and later released, an LMH spokeswoman said. Howard was not injured. Lewis said officers believed Mailath’s inattention contributed to the crash, but the accident report was not yet complete Friday.

Tax cut survives: Congress votes holiday approval By Andrew Taylor Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Barely beating Santa’s sleigh, Congress delivered a last-minute holiday tax-cut extension to 160 million American wageearners on Friday, just when it looked like they and millions of unemployed workers were going to be left with coal in their stockings. It was a major yearend political victory for President Barack Obama, a big slice of humble pie for House Republicans and a blow to House Speaker John Boehner, R- Huelskamp Ohio, who’ll have an angry band of tea party lawmakers to deal with when Congress returns to Washington next month. Back-to-back voice vote approvals of the two-month special measure by the Senate and House came in mere seconds with no debate, just days after House Republican leaders had insisted that reopening negotiations on a full-year bill was the only way to persuade them to prevent a tax increase on Jan. 1. Obama immediately signed the bill into law. “I said it was critical for Congress not to go home without preventing a tax increase on 160 million working Americans and I’m pleased to say that they got it done,” a buoyant looking Obama said at the White House before dashing off for his delayed holiday vacation to his home state of Hawaii. Most lawmakers were long gone. A token few showed up to make approval official. The legislation buys time for talks early next year on how to finance the year-long extensions — negotiations that promise to be contentious, especially if Democrats continue to use Obama’s jobs agenda to seek a political edge in the 2012 presidential and congressional campaigns. The measure will keep in place a 2 percentage point cut in the Social Security payroll tax — worth about $20 a week for a typical worker making $50,000 a year — and prevent almost 2 million unemployed people from losing jobless benefits averaging $300 a week. Doctors will win a reprieve from a 27 percent cut in their Medicare payments, the product of a 1997 cut that Congress has been unable to permanently fix. Republicans did claim a major victory, winning a provision that would require Obama to make a swift decision on whether to approve construction of the Canadato-Texas Keystone XL oil pipeline, which could generate thousands of construction jobs. To stop construction, Obama, who had wanted to put the decision off until after the 2012 election, would have to declare it was not in the nation’s interest. On Friday, an expressionless Boehner read from a piece of paper before him, gaveled the House’s last session of the year closed and stepped off the podium on the Democratic side. Boehner had been open to the Senate’s version of the legislation a week ago, even though it would have punted the issue into February and given Democrats a proven political issue. But tea party forces and some in his own leadership revolted, insisting on picking a holiday fight with Democrats, and Boehner felt no choice but to go along. The battle turned out to be a loser for House Republicans, earning the ire of swing voters and many in the GOP establishment, but when Boehner capitulated on Thursday he then felt the lash from hardcore conservatives. “Even though there is plenty of evidence this is a bad deal for America ... the House has caved yet again to the president and Senate Democrats,” said Rep. Tim Huelskamp, R-Kan. Meanwhile, Democratic Senate leader Harry Reid of Nevada did a victory lap, twisting the knife into tea party Republicans.

“I hope this Congress has had a very good learning experience, especially those who are newer to this body,” Reid said. “Everything we do around here does not have to wind up in a fight.” A full-year extension of the tax cut had been embraced by virtually every lawmaker in both the House and Senate but had been derailed in a quarrel over demands by House Republicans. Senate leaders of both parties had tried to barter their own yearlong agreement a week ago but failed, instead agreeing upon a 60-day measure to buy time for talks next year. House GOP arguments about the legislative process and what the “uncertainty” of a two-month extension would mean for businesses seemed lame to many people when compared to the consequences of raising taxes and cutting off jobless benefits in the middle of the holiday season, and Obama and the Democrats were hard on the offensive. House Republicans finally resorted to a technical fix and the fact that Reid would name

negotiators on the GOP’s yearlong measure as reasons to reverse course and embrace the Senate measure. Friday’s House and Senate sessions were remarkable. Both chambers had essentially recessed for the year, but leaders in both parties orchestrated passage of the short-term agreement under debate rules that would allow any individual member of Congress to derail the pact, at least for a time. None did. The developments were a clear win for Obama. The payroll tax cut was the centerpiece of his three-month, campaign-style drive for jobs legislation that seems to have contributed to an uptick in his poll numbers — and taken a toll on those of congressional Republicans. The two-month version’s $33 billion cost will be covered by a 0.1 percentage point increase on guarantee fees on new home loans backed by mortgage giants Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and Ginnie Mae — at a likely cost of about $17 a month for a homeowner with a $200,000 mortgage.

France to pay for removal of risky implants PARIS (AP) — France took a costly and unprecedented leap Friday in offering to pay for 30,000 women to have their breast implants removed because of mounting fears the products could rupture and leak cheap, industrial-grade silicone into the body. Tens of thousands of other women elsewhere in Europe and in South America have the same French-made implants, but authorities there have so far refused to follow suit. The silicone-gel implants in question are not sold in the U.S. Over the past week, the safety fears have created a public furor over something usually kept private, even in France. Women, some whose own families didn’t know they had their breasts enlarged, marched on Paris to demand more attention to worries about what might be happening inside them. Images of leaky, blubbery implants and women having mammograms have been splashed on French TV. More than 1,000 ruptures pushed Health Minister Xavier Bertrand to recommend that the estimated 30,000 women in France with the implants get them removed at the state’s expense. Bertrand insisted the removals would be “preventive” and not urgent, and French health authorities said they had found nothing to link the implants to nine cases of cancer in women. The death last month of a woman who had

Guerin had her left breast removed after cancer and had PIP implants put in both breasts. the implants and developed a rare cancer — anaplastic large-cell lymphoma — had catalyzed worries. The implants, made by the now-defunct French company Poly Implant Prothese, were pulled from the market last year in countries around Europe and South America where they had been sold. The company’s website said it exported to more than 60 countries and was one of the world’s leading implant makers. International police agency Interpol put PIP’s former di-

rector, Jean-Claude Mas, on its most-wanted list, based on a warrant from Costa Rica for crimes involving “life and health.” Interpol’s website carries a photo of the 72-year-old Mas but no details about his alleged crimes or link to Costa Rica. Mas’ lawyer could not be reached for comment Friday. France’s health safety agency says the PIP implants appear to be more ruptureprone than other types. Also, investigators say PIP used industrial silicone instead of the medical variety to save money. However, the medical risks posed by industrial silicone are unclear. The financial burden of the French government’s decision falls on the state health care system, which estimated the removals could cost $78 million at a time when the country is teetering on the brink of another recession and struggling with debt. In recommending removal, the government noted the risks associated with major surgery and general anesthesia. Because of those risks, many women may decide against removal. The government said those women should be examined every six months. After the French decision, Britain’s Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency announced that it doesn’t see enough proof of cancer or an excessive risk of rupture to recommend women in Britain have the implants removed.

Pros see stocks up in 2012, but risks, too By Bernard Condon Associated Press

NEW YORK — The good news is that Wall Street experts think stock prices will rise more than 10 percent next year. The bad news is that they expected big gains in 2011 and got nearly zero instead. It’s forecasting time on Wall Street, and once again the pros are trying to predict the unpredictable. History suggests their target price for stocks by the end of 2012 will prove too high or too low. They might even get the direction wrong — predicting a gain when there’s a loss. As Yogi Berra said, “It’s tough to make predictions, especially about the future.” In typical times, guessing where stocks will end up in a year is difficult. There are many assumptions about economic growth, inflation and consumer spending that go into the calculation. Now, forecasting has become nearly impossible. Big unknowns hang over the market as rarely before. Will the euro break up? Will China slow too sharply? Will squabbling in Washington scuttle the economic recovery? “Normally, you wonder, How will sales do? How are managements doing?” says Howard Silverblatt, senior

index analyst at Standard & Poor’s, which puts out its own forecasts. “Now there are so many high-level issues that affect the market.” Silverblatt’s firm says the S&P 500 index should rise to 1,400 by the end of 2012, up more than 10 percent from Friday’s close of 1,265. That figure is an average of expectations from investment strategists, economists and other big thinkers. More bullish yet are stock analysts focused on individual companies. Add up their price targets for each stock in the index, and they see it rising to 1,457, up 15 percent. There’s plenty of reason to think stocks will rise fast in the coming year. U.S. companies are generating record profits. Americans are spending more than expected and factories are producing more. The job market finally appears to be healing, too. The odds of the U.S. slipping into another recession have fallen since the summer, when the economy had slowed. Stocks seem attractively priced, too. The S&P 500 is trading at 12 times its expected earnings per share for 2012. It typically trades at 15 times, meaning stocks appear cheaper now. Binky Chadha, chief strategist at Deutsche Bank, says


the S&P 500 could hit 1,500 by the end of 2012, a gain of more than 18 percent. Still, there is worry amid the bullishness. Michael Hartnett, chief global equity strategist at Bank of America-Merrill Lynch, expects the S&P to close next year at 1,350, up 6.7 percent from Friday’s close. He thinks the U.S. will avoid recession and U.S. companies will generate decent profits. What could wreck that prediction is a worse situation in Europe than he is expecting. If European leaders move too slowly to solve their government debt crisis, the region could fall into a deep recession and throw the U.S. into one, too. If Europe tanks, profits will drop sharply and push the S&P down to 1,000, he says. That would be a sharp drop of 21 percent from Friday’s close. The frightening part is that Hartnett gives this “bear” case four-in-10 odds. Similarly, Barry Knapp, strategist at Barclays Capital, predicts the S&P will rise to 1,330 next year. But he expects Europe’s struggles with its debt and Washington gridlock could lead investors to sell before they buy. He says the S&P could fall to 1,150 by the middle of the year before rising to his target.

The Democrats set a trap and the Republicans walked right into it.” by the Senate just days before the new year: “There is insufficient lead time to accommodate the proposal,” because “many payroll systems are not likely to be able to make such a substantial programming change before January or even February,” thereby “creat(ing) substantial problems, confusion and costs.” The final compromise appears to tweak this a bit to make it less onerous for small business. But what were they thinking in the first place? What business operates two months at a time? The minimal time horizon for business

is the quarter — three months. What genius came up with two? U.S. businesses would have to budget for two-thirds of a one-quarter tax-holiday extension. As if this government has not already heaped enough regulatory impediments and mindless uncertainties upon business. But making economic sense is not the point. The tax-holiday extension — presumably to be negotiated next year into a 12-month extension — is the perfect campaign ploy: an election-year bribe that has the additional virtue of seizing the tax issue for the Democrats. When George McGovern campaigned on giving every household $1,000, he was laughed out of town as a shameless panderer. President Obama is doing exactly the same — a one-year tax

The baskets will be given out at the Army headquarters, between ten and twelve o’clock on Christmas Day. In every basket there will be sufficient dinner for five persons. The food will be potatoes, apples, canned corn, canned tomatoes, celery, a box of Nabiscoes, a jar of canned fruit and a chicken and two loaves of bread.

This is pure fiction, because the Treasury supplies whatever shortfalls Social Security faces. But now, with the payroll tax holiday, the administration openly demonstrates bad faith — conceding with its actions that the payroll tax is, after all, interchangeable with other revenues and never actually sequestered to ensure future payments to retirees. The House Republicans’ initial rejection of this two-month extension was therefore correct on principle and on policy. But this was absolutely the wrong place, the wrong time, to plant the flag. Once Senate Republicans overwhelmingly backed the temporary extension, that part of the fight was lost. Opposing it became kamikaze politics. Note the toll it is already taking on Republicans.

holiday that hands back about $1,000 per middle-class family — but with a little more subtlety. Obama is also selling it as a job creator. This takes audacity. Even a one-year extension isn’t a tax cut; it’s a tax holiday. A two-month extension is nothing more than a long tax weekend. What employer is going to alter his hiring decisions — whose effects last years — in anticipation of a one-year tax holiday, let alone two months? This is a $121 billion annual drain on the Treasury that makes a mockery of the Democrats’ reverence for the Social Security trust fund and its inviolability. Obama’s OMB director took Social Security completely off the table in debt-reduction talks under the pretense that Social Security is self-financing.

decades Republicans owned the tax issue. Today, Obama leads by five points, a 12-point swing since just early October. The payroll tax ploy has even affected his overall approval rating, now up five points in six weeks to 49 percent. The Democrats set a trap and the Republicans walked right into it. By rejecting an ostensibly bipartisan “compromise,” the Republican House was portrayed as obstructionist and, even worse, heartless — willing to raise taxes on the middle class while resolutely opposing any tax increases on the rich. House Republicans compounded this debacle by begging the Senate to come back and renegotiate the issue, thus entirely conceding the initiative to Majority Leader Harry Reid. But Reid had little incentive to make any concessions. House Republicans would have taken the fall for 160 million shrunken paychecks. Every day the White House would have demanded, in the name of the suffering middle class, that Republicans return from vacation and pass the temporary extension. Having finally realized they had trapped themselves, House Republicans quickly caved, thanks to a fig leaf contrived by Sen. Mitch McConnell. The GOP’s performance nicely reprises that scene in “Animal House” where the marching band turns into a blind alley and row after row of plumed morons plows into a brick wall, crumbling to the ground in an unceremonious heap. With one difference: House Republicans are unplumed.

To the editor: On my walk downtown a week before Christmas, I saw a young couple crossing the intersection by the courthouse who didn’t look like they were from here. The woman was speaking a language that wasn’t English. I don’t know if they were part of a sleeper cell or not. When I approached the Wild Territory I saw a fat man parading himself in red plush, although his beard was more groomed than I remembered. Someone said the guy was giving candy to children. Probably not a pervert. In front of Central Bank, I saw a young man give a handful of change to another man sitting in the doorway. Was he deserving? At the Eldridge Hotel, a young woman started and stopped singing “Jingle Bells” several times while a man repeatedly walked by and dropped a bill into

the bucket she was holding. A camera crew filmed the whole exchange. Staged panhandling? I tend to believe that the people I encounter are real, if the whole truth of their unknown stories may be suspect. We live in a society where we make hasty assumptions when we see people in head coverings or piercings, black, white or other colored skin, cleanshaven or poorly dressed. People are real. We should learn their stories and reject the stereotypes. If you were on Mass. Street last Saturday, you might have seen me, wearing clothes probably bought at The Salvation Army, singing under my breath: “I’ll be home for Christmas…” I often feel that way in downtown Lawrence.

KU music student to play with Yo-Yo Ma Three young musicians will get a chance to learn from world-renowned cellist Yo-Yo Ma when he visits Kansas City next month to appear at the new Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts. Students from Kansas University, the University of Missouri-Kansas City and Park University will participate in a special master class with Ma. Students in master classes typically perform a piece once, then play it again after hearing advice from the master. One of the students picked for the opportunity is Hyerim Jeon, who is pursuing a doctorate in musical arts from the Kansas University. She says she couldn’t believe her eyes when she received the invitation. Ma’s three performances of the Dvorak Cello Concerto with the Kansas City Symphony are sold out.

LAWRENCE JOURNAL-WORLD OSaturday, December 24, 2011



Taylor pushes self, KU onward Somewhere between Los Angeles and Chicago, 39,000 feet above snow-covered fields, Kansas University senior guard Tyshawn Taylor stole a nap Friday in Seat 19C on Southwest Airlines Flight 105. He was on his way to New Jersey to visit friends and relatives for a well-deserved break from his duties as student-athlete and leader of a basketball team that has less depth than Kim Kardashian. Taylor, up with the crack of dawn, connected to another flight on his way to New Jersey, where he was scheduled to arrive at 7:30 p.m. Just another long day in the life of a college basketball player. He’ll return to school for the final time the day after Christmas. By the time Selection Sunday arrives 11 weeks from now, all the talk will center on the seeding, the opponent, the site. Not much will be said about how much worse that seeding would have been had Taylor not been able to manage so well the pain that comes with playing basketball with a torn meniscus and sprained ACL. In a span of nine days, Taylor suffered a knee injury in practice, then — while wearing a knee brace — helped KU to win two games (Long Beach State and Ohio State) it would have lost without him, then underwent surgery to repair the meniscus, then was back on the court in a losing effort against Davidson. “The doctors did a great job,” Taylor said, after dishing nine assists and turning it over just twice in Thursday night’s grind-it-out road victory against USC. “I’m proud of myself, too. I never really had any injuries with my knees, with my ankles, with my legs, period. I was a little nervous about it when it first happened. I was a little scared. Once I started to do my rehab, I started to feel better.” The knee, he said, still swells, but returns to normal after icing. He said he doesn’t feel it when he’s on the court. It’s his pride that hurts sometimes when he watches games. “Since that Duke game,” when Taylor had 11 turnovers, “I’ve watched every game once or twice. A lot of my turnovers are unforced. Just careless plays. Those are things that are easily correctable, and I’m working on correcting them. I know that I have to be patient and not try to force so many things.” Taylor expressed gratitude to the team’s video coordinator, Jeff Forbes, a former Lawrence High assistant boys basketball coach. Every turnover and assist is edited onto its own clip. Same with defensive possessions and shots. Taylor watches his plays, good and bad, so often because he wants to lead his team deeper into the tournament than most of us would guess it will advance. He wants to play in the NBA. He knows his game needs tightening. “On the ball, I think I’m a pretty good defender,” Taylor said. “I think where I get in trouble is not being a strong help defender. If somebody beats Elijah (Johnson) or Trav (Releford), I’m not helping. Or I’m just ball-watching. Elijah and I both get into trouble ball-watching.” He also wants Thursday’s twoturnover total to be the norm. “The only other thing I can say about myself is, defensively I have to try to put more pressure on the ball and create more havoc,” he said. If he falls short, it won’t be for lack of effort or toughness.

New QBs could help Weis’ recruiting By Matt Tait

LAWRENCE HIGH SCHOOL HAS SEVEN WRESTLERS RANKED IN THE TOP FIVE IN THE STATE this season in their weight classes. They are, from left: No. 2 Tristan Star, freshman; No. 3 Caden Lynch, junior; No. 2 Hunter Haralson, junior; No. 3 Andrew Denning, junior; No. 3 Nick Pursel, senior; No. 1 Reece Wright-Conklin, senior; No. 3 Brad Wilson, senior.

Rankings? Check. Years of experience? Check. LHS wrestlers now set sights on winning it all By Benton Smith

Lawrence High’s wrestling program certainly has earned the respect of its peers. A quick perusal of the Class 6A state wrestling rankings paints a clear picture of just how highly regarded the Lions are. For starters, LHS is the No. 1 team in the state, according to the Kansas Wrestling Coaches Association. Then there are the individual rankings. Impressively, LHS has top-five grapplers in seven of the 14 weight classes — senior Reece Wright-Conklin (182 pounds) is No. 1, junior Hunter Haralson

(126) and freshman Tristan Star (106) are both ranked No. 2, and juniors Andrew Denning (152) and Caden Lynch (132) as well as seniors Nick Pursel (170) and Brad Wilson (220) are all ranked third. So, what has made Lawrence so successful? Coach Pat Naughton said a lot of the team’s accolades are the result of having six of the Lions’ ranked wrestlers come up through the local Sunflower Kids Wrestling club (Wilson took part in Lawrence Elite Wrestling). Without a strong youth wrestling program, Naughton said, “your high school program’s gonna suffer.” The Lawrence head

coach said the Sunflower club, headed by LHS assistant coach Randy Streeter, not only served as a great introduction to wrestling for the future Lions, but also kept them interested while nurturing their development as grapplers. Streeter, who also serves as head coach at South Middle School, still has old photos from when Haralson, Lynch, Wright-Conklin and Pursel were barely big enough to fill out their singlets. The guys who are now considered among the best in the state got started with Sunflower when they were 5 or 6 years old — or younger. Please see LHS, page 4B

Many around Lawrence — both fans and those within the program — are still in a state of euphoria. It’s been a long time (if ever) since the Kansas University football program has experienced the kind of recruiting day it enjoyed Thursday, when a pair of former five-star quarterbacks announced within a few hours of each other that they would be coming to Kansas next season. Dayne Crist, the No. 2-rated QB in the high school Class of 2008, who graduated from Notre Dame this month after playing for the Fighting Irish from 2008 to 2011, will be allowed to play out his final year of eligibility at KU immediately. Jake Heaps, the top-ranked QB in the high school Class of 2010 and a BYU sophomore who started 15 games for the Cougars Crist before being benched earlier this season, will sit out next year because of NCAA transfer rules and will have two years of eligibility remain- Heaps ing beginning in 2013. If things play out on the field the way they played out during KU coach Charlie Weis’ pursuit of the top-tier quarterbacks, Crist, who was recruited to Notre Dame by Weis, will be the Jayhawks’ starter next season, and Heaps will take over for 2013 and 2014. Not since Todd Reesing beat out Kerry Meier for the starting job during the fall of 2007, has KU’s future at the position looked so bright. Even then, few could predict that Reesing, who first played as a true freshman during the final three games of the 2006 season, would go on to rewrite KU’s passing record book and become one of the best quarterbacks in the country for a couple of seasons. With KU’s quarterback position now in good shape, the focus shifts to tracking which players may decide to join Please see FOOTBALL, page 4B


Palmer gets do-over vs. KC

Paul Sakuma/AP File Photo

OAKLAND RAIDERS QUARTERBACK CARSON PALMER (3) PASSES against the Kansas City Chiefs in this file photo from Oct. 23, in Oakland, Calif.

KANSAS CITY, MO. (AP) — Carson Palmer didn’t stand much of a chance the last time he faced the Kansas City Chiefs. The Raiders had traded for him just a few days after Jason Campbell went down with a broken collarbone, and thrust him into the game against Kansas City with little preparation. He was part of a combined sixinterception performance by Oakland quarterbacks in a frustrating shutout loss. In some ways, Kyle Orton understands what Palmer was going through. He was claimed off waivers from the Denver Broncos late last month, after Chiefs quarterback Matt Cassel went down with a season-ending injury to his throwing hand. Orton was also thrust into a tough spot last Sunday, making his first start for Kansas City against the unbeaten Green Bay Packers, and came through with a dazzling performance in a surprising victory. Now, Orton and the Chiefs face Palmer and the Raiders at

Arrowhead Stadium on Saturday, both teams needing to win to keep their flickering playoff hopes alive. “They’re a different team. We’re a different offense now,” Palmer said week. SATURDAY this “They’re playSHOWDOWN ing a little bit differently What: Kansas City now, and we’re (6-8) vs. Oakland definitely play7-7) ing a little bit When: noon today differently.” The Raiders Where: Arrowhead have plenty Stadium TV: CBS (Knology of experience cable channels 5, facing Orton from his days 13, 205, 213) in Denver, and Line: KC by 2 1/2 considering how they’ve fared against him, they should feel pretty good about their prospects. Orton is 1-3 as a starter against Oakland, completing just a shade over 50 percent of his passes. But he’s coming off a virtuoso performance against Green Bay

in which he completed a careerbest 74.2 percent of his throws for 299 yards without an interception, one that came despite having little time to grow accustomed to his new teammates and a sore index finger on his throwing hand. “It’ll be a work in progress every week, no doubt about it,” Orton said. “I’m excited about the way we played, though. We won the game and hopefully that’s just a building block for us. I think we did a lot of good things on offense.” The Raiders have grown more accustomed to Palmer since he took over in late October, though the results have been mixed. They won three straight at one point, only to follow up with a trio of losses that culminated with a meltdown last Sunday against Detroit. Matthew Stafford threw a short touchdown pass with 39 seconds left to cap a 98-yard drive, and Ndamukong Suh Please see CHIEFS, page 3B

New Air Jordans create frenzy SEATTLE (AP) — Scuffles broke out and police were brought in to quell unrest that nearly turned into riots across the nation Friday following the release of Nike’s new Air Jordan basketball shoes — a retro model of one of the most popular Air Jordans ever made. The mayhem stretched from Washington state to Georgia and

was reminiscent of the violence that broke out 20 years ago in many cities as the shoes became popular targets for thieves. It also had a decidedly Black Friday feel as huge crowds of shoppers overwhelmed stores for a must-have item. In suburban Seattle, police used pepper spray on about 20 customers who started fighting at

the Westfield Southcenter mall. The crowd started gathering at four stores in the mall around midnight and had grown to more than 1,000 people by 4 a.m., when the stores opened, Tukwila Officer Mike Murphy said. He said it started as fighting and pushing among people in line and escalated over the next hour. Murphy said no injuries were



It’s now or never for Raiders

MIAMI — Nearly two dozen former NFL players are suing the league over severe and permanent brain damage they say is linked to concussions suffered on the job. The complaint filed in Miami follows a similar one in Atlanta earlier this week. It is the latest in a series of recent lawsuits against the NFL by ex-players. The lawsuit was filed on behalf of exMiami Dolphins teammates Patrick Surtain, Oronde Gadsden and 19 other players. It accuses the NFL of deliberately omitting or concealing years of evidence linking concussions to long-term neurological problems. The NFL denies the charges and says player safety has long been a priority. The players claim the NFL made misrepresentations about the seriousness of their injuries “with the intent of inducing NFL players, including Plaintiffs, to return to play as soon as physically possible after having suffered a football-related concussion and to promote an aggressive style of football that would attract viewers.� According to the lawsuit, following numerous studies on the risks of concussions, the NFL created a committee of researchers and doctors in 1994 to study concussions. The committee was supposed to be independent, but members were affiliated with NFL, the lawsuit said, and the group did not include a doctor specializing in neurology or other brain research. When the committee published its findings in 2003, it stated “there was no long-term negative health consequence associated with concussions,� according to the complaint.

Reds trade for Marshall CINCINNATI — The Cincinnati Reds acquired left-handed reliever Sean Marshall from the Chicago Cubs on Friday for young lefty starter Travis Wood and two other players. It was the second time in a week that the Reds gave up several prospects for pitching help. They earlier sent four players, including Edinson Volquez, to San Diego for starter Mat Latos. The 29-year-old, 6-foot7 Marshall was 6-6 with a 2.26 earned-run average Marshall last season. He had five saves. The Reds have been in talks to try to re-sign closer Francisco Cordero, who became a free agent after last season. “Sean has been one of the best and most durable relievers in baseball the last couple of seasons,� Reds general manager Walt Wood Jocketty said in a statement. The 24-year-old Wood made 35 starts for the Reds over two seasons. He finished 6-6 with a 4.84 ERA in 2011, with a stint in TripleA after struggling early in the year. The Cubs also get 24-year-old outfielder Dave Sappelt, who batted .243 in 38 games with the Reds, and 19-year-old infield prospect Ronald Torreyes, who batted .356 in 67 games for Class-A Dayton.

Ex-players sue NFL over concussions

By Monte Poole

The Oakland Raiders today enter a hostile atmosphere to confront a physically inferior Kansas City team motivated by a single goal. The Chiefs like interim coach Romeo Crennel, and they are rallying around him, openly campaigning for him to get the full-time job. The Chiefs remain on the outskirts of playoff contention, still with a mathematical chance to win the wildly irreconcilable AFC West, and their revived spirit under Crennel was on display last Sunday when they stunned previously undefeated Green Bay. Emotion can be a powerful tool for any football team, so the intensity will be high for the Chiefs, playing their final scheduled home game on Christmas weekend. What does this mean for the Raiders? Well, it presents them the perfect platform to show skeptics and believers and even themselves what lies within their collective gut. Will the 2011 Raiders remain an underachieving, accountability challenged club with too many players unable or unwilling to “man up� when it counts? Is Oakland the inconsistently coached squad — especially on defense — that has practically gift-wrapped and given away games against Buffalo, Denver and Detroit? Or is it the purposeful team coach Hue Jackson keeps insisting it is? When these two longtime rivals walk off the field at Arrowhead Stadium, there will be no hiding the truth. The Raiders could lose, in which case Jackson will embrace blame, accepting more responsibility than he should. Or they can win and perhaps remain in contention, in which case we anticipate Hue will stay on message. Not a second has passed this week, or this season, without Jackson expressing absolute faith in himself and his players. He has not wavered. Cold facts, however, dictate the fortunes of a team. It’s not about intent or effort but the numbers on the scoreboard and in the standings. Numbers are unmoved by the rhetoric of a coach and completely unaffected by his desires, no matter how deep. Cold facts tell us the Raiders lack the elements to back up Jackson’s faith. They are neither irredeemably bad nor irrepressibly good. They are neither an utter failure nor a spectacular success. They are somewhat talented — though clearly diminished by the injuries ravaging the roster — but profoundly flawed. And those flaws keep getting in the way. The most disturbing flaw is the lack of accountability among some of the men who are supposed to set the tone for the team’s ambition and character. What are we to think when cornerback Stanford Routt, the highest-paid defensive back on the team, routinely dodges responsibility when he’s beaten or flagged for grabbing an opposing receiver? This is something Nnamdi Asomugha never did. It’s something Charles Woodson, who played on Oakland’s last Super Bowl team, never did. Where is the inner drive when wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey barely acknowledges his dropped passes but quickly points out his contributions? When Oakland sailed into December on a three-game win streak to seize first place in the AFC West, Jackson appeared to be succeeding at reaching his men. But three consecutive losses this month, a crucial stretch, shout otherwise. So this is another defining moment, maybe Oakland’s last this season. The Chiefs, who pantsed the Raiders 28-0 earlier this season, now play with even more purpose. If the Raiders care to compete, this is a game they can win. If not, then they’ll go home and get started on what will be a huge offseason undertaking. It’s up to them. They should know the reception inside Arrowhead Stadium will be as rude as the grills outside are hot.

Roethlisberger to miss start Nats complete Gonzalez deal

PITTSBURGH — Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will not start today when the Steelers face the St. Louis Rams. Roethlisberger is dealing with a sprained left ankle and did not practice this week following a 20-3 loss to San Francisco on Monday. He will be replaced by veteran Charlie Batch, who is 4-2 as a spot starter since joining the Steelers in 2003. Roethlisberger said Wednesday he would prefer to play and believed his ankle was in pretty good shape after throwing for 330 yards and three interceptions against the 49ers. Yet he watched both practices this week in sweat pants as Batch took the snaps with the first team.

WASHINGTON — The Athletics and Nationals have completed a six-player trade that sends All-Star pitcher Gio Gonzalez from Oakland to Washington. The deal was announced Friday after the players involved passed physicals. A day earlier, Gonzalez said in a phone interview that the trade was just about done. The Nationals get Gonzalez and minor league right-hander Robert Gilliam in exchange for four players, including three top prospects: catcher Derek Norris, righthanders A.J. Cole and Brad Peacock, and left-hander Tommy Milone.

KANSAS CITY CHIEFS INTERIM COACH ROMEO CRENNEL CELEBRATES with his team at the end of a victory against the Green Bay Packers on Dec. 18 in Kansas City, Mo.

Chiefs players, coaches support hiring Crennel “

KANSAS CITY, MO. (AP) — The endorsements for Romeo Crennel to get the Kansas City Chiefs’ full-time job keep coming. Offensive coordinator Bill Muir offered unsolicited support of Crennel on Thursday, one day after star linebacker Tamba Hali said he’d like to see the Chiefs’ defense coordinator and current interim coach get the job on a permanent basis. “The defense has started to turn the corner. It would be a shame to change that,” Muir said. “I think Romeo’s demeanor as a football coach, he relates very well to the players, he has a sternness to him, about being a dictatorial-type of man. I just think he would do a good job.” Crennel took over nearly two weeks ago, when the Chiefs fired Todd Haley after a 5-8 start. With the team in turmoil, the former Cleveland Browns coach provided a calming presence in the Chiefs’ locker room, helping keep together a team with flickering playoff hopes. Kansas City responded with its best performance of

I think anybody on this team would agree with me, if we can keep Romeo as our head coach here it would be great.”


upset the Broncos on Saturday, and the Chargers to lose one of their two remaining games. Of course, the way this season has gone, they’ll take whatever the odds might be. There have been devastating injuries to star players like Jamaal Charles and Eric Berry, a three-game losing streak that was among the worst in NFL history, and a four-game winning streak that put them in a brief tie atop the division. There was another losing stretch that culminated in the firing of Todd Haley last week, and a buoyant victory over the Super Bowl champion Packers last Sunday. If it’s been a nauseating rollercoaster ride for Oakland, it’s been more so for the Chiefs. “This Raider team, they’re in the same situation we are, they need to win like we need to win, so they’ll be ready to go,” said the Chiefs’ Romeo Crennel, who was elevated to interim coach last week and whose calming influence has helped stabilize a team in disarray. “We have to put the best effort out there,” Crennel said. “We really have to play our best game of the year, so that’s what I talked to them about, and try to get that done. Hopefully they listened, they took that in and they’ll apply it in their preparation.”


blocked the potential winning field goal as time expired for the Lions. “At the end of the day you have to grind it out,” Raiders coach Hue Jackson said. “It’s been very hard, but at the end of the day, we weren’t ready to win that game, because we didn’t.” Difficulty putting games away hasn’t been Palmer’s fault, at least not entirely. He was an incredible 32 of 40 for 367 yards and a touchdown without an interception against Detroit, though he did miss on a couple of passes down the stretch that could have helped wrapped things up. “It’s frustrating, no matter how good or bad you play,” Palmer said. “A loss is a loss. When you’re winning for 90 percent of the game, if you lose, you lose. “This team’s too good not to finish games out.” Now, the Raiders need to beat the Chiefs and the Chargers in their final two games, and hope Kansas City knocks off the Broncos in Week 17, to squeak into the playoffs. It’s not necessarily a long shot, but it’s certainly a longer shot than before their three-game slide. “You can’t run from that,” Jackson said, when asked whether he talked about to his team about controlling its own destiny. “They know we have let that slip away, but at the same time it’s not over. We have to go play as well as we can and change that in our favor.” Kansas City also needs a whole lot of help to make the playoffs. The defending division champions need to beat Oakland and Denver in their final two games, Buffalo to

— Kansas City Chiefs’ Tamba Hali on interim head coach Romeo Crennel the season in a 19-14 upset of the previously unbeaten Green Bay Packers. Now, the reigning AFC West champions need to win their final two games and get help from Buffalo and San Diego to slip into the playoffs for the second straight year. “I think anybody on this team would agree with me, if we can keep Romeo as our head coach here it would be great,” Hali said. “We love what he does and his game plan and as you can see what happened on Sunday, he was able to control the clock along with our quarterback and that’s something we haven’t been able to do here in a long time is control the clock. Now to win games.” Exactly: Time to win games.

Crennel, who was 24-40 in four seasons in Cleveland, said his focus is on the remaining regular-season games against Oakland and Denver. After the season ends, it’ll be up to general manager Scott Pioli and CEO Clark Hunt to decide whether to give him the full-time job. “I’ve won one game. Let’s see if we can win another, and whatever happens will happen after the season is over,” Crennel said. “The only thing I can control is my players and how we play and whether we win or lose or not, so that’s what I’m going to do.” Crennel said he appreciated the support, which has been nearly universal, especially when it comes from a coaching staff that has rallied together since Haley’s firing. “I know that I can lean on these guys any time I want to or need to, and the biggest thing that I’ve done as far as leaning on them is letting them do their job,” he said. “That’s the biggest thing, because they are experienced coaches, and they know the game of football.”

games, especially in Big 12 Conference play, in which Kansas University All-America candidate Thomas Robinson will be double- and triple-teamed. Games like Thursday’s 63-47 victory over USC, in which the 6-10, 237-pound junior power forward muscled his way to just 10 points off 5-of-12 shooting with nine rebounds in 30 minutes. “I mean, it’s going to happen all year,” said Robinson, who had two steals, but also lost five turnovers. “They did a good job making sure I didn’t get angles or to the rim. Props to them.” Robinson — he also was shadowed by more than one defender en route to 21 points (7-18 shooting, 18 rebounds) in last Monday’s 80-74 loss to Davidson — at least knows

— Kansas University forward Thomas Robinson on USC’s defensive effort against him and the Jayhawks on Thursday what to expect when he takes the floor. “We know there will be teams that focus in on me like they did,” Robinson said of USC. “Coach (Bill Self) warned us before we went into the game it would be that type of game and be like that. I’ll watch tape and learn from it.” Robinson applauded his teammates for “stepping up” on Thursday. Elijah Johnson had 14 points, Conner Teahan 13 and Tyshawn Taylor 10. As a team, KU plodded its

way to 25 points the first half and 38 the second, mostly in halfcourt offense. “We don’t have a choice but to have fun,” Robinson said of games in which the pace slows down. “We’ll have a lot of those games. We came out sluggish tonight, but we guarded for the most part.” O Talkin’ treys: Conner Teahan (4-7 threes) joked with a USC fan who was sitting in the front row much of the game. “One of the kids said something about me missing a shot in the corner,” Teahan said. “I told him I’d make the next one for him. I made it. Then in the second half when I started off a little cold, he got on me. Then I made those two (late) I smiled at him. You know what, maybe he was the reason I was making Nick Krug/Journal-World Photo ‘em. He started talking and they started going in for me. KANSAS FORWARD THOMAS ROBINSON FIGHTS INSIDE for a shot against USC defenders Byron Wesley (25) and James Blasczyk (31) during the second half on Thursday at the Galen Center. It was all in good fun.”


TOP OF THE CLASS Lawrence High’s wrestling team is ranked No. 1 in Class 6A by the Kansas Wrestling Coaches Association. Seven Lions are ranked in the top five in their weight class.


The club brought the wrestlers along, Streeter said, with aspirations they would some day comprise a state championship high school team. “When you look at stateranked teams, and you look at the upper echelon teams, they all have feeder kids programs,” the Lions assistant said. “You can’t survive without them.” By the time the wrestlers arrive at LHS, Naughton said, they have all the fundamentals and experience they need. As he put it: “It’s go time now.” Between Lawrence’s seven ranked wrestlers and teammates Ryan Bellinger, Macon Ezell, Garrett Girard, Alex Jones, Austin Magdaleno, Ryan Schulteis, Tim Thongone, Jacob Von Feldt and Ryan Walter, the Lions have combined to win 103 matches so far this season, with 60 losses. Even though years of preparation got them to this point,

Journal-World File Photo

IN THIS PHOTO FROM 2006, future Lawrence High wrestlers pose after a top-five finish at a tournament. From left, in front: senior Nick Pursel, junior Hunter Haralson and senior Reece Wright-Conklin. Also pictured, in back: former Lawrence High wrestler Blake Greenfield. Naughton said being the toprated team in the state with seven top-five wrestlers isn’t something he or the Lions talk about that often. “We try not to focus on them (rankings). It’s so subjective,” Naughton said. “It’s just like any other statistic — you can break everything

down and make it say whatever you want to.” Denning, who holds an 11-2 record at the winter break, said if the rankings hold any importance for the wrestlers, it is in the numbers’ ability to motivate. “If we’re up there, we’re up there,” Denning said. “If not,

106 — No. 2 Tristan Star, freshman (10-3) 126 — No. 2 Hunter Haralson, junior (12-2) 132 — No. 3 Caden Lynch, junior (9-4) 152 — No. 3 Andrew Denning, junior (11-2) 170 — No. 3 Nick Pursel, senior (14-0) 182 — No. 1 Reece Wright-Conklin, senior (11-0) 220 — No. 3 Brad Wilson, senior (11-2)

that’s gonna make us work harder to get up there.” Wilson (11-2) agreed the rankings can be motivating, but said “it really doesn’t matter until February rolls around,” referring to the state tournament, where matches and state medals determine the top wrestlers.

Besides, rankings can be fleeting. “One day you could be ranked third, and one day you could not be ranked,” Wilson said. It doesn’t do wrestlers much good, he added, to get wrapped up in the top five when there are matches to worry about. “Anybody can beat you. Unless you’re Reece or something,” Wilson said, sporting a huge grin. Wright-Conklin, a two-time state champion, hasn’t lost a match since his sophomore year. He’s plenty familiar with rankings and how they can impact a wrestler’s approach. The Lions had great success in their season debut at Leavenworth, dominated Olathe South in a dual and won the Eudora Tournament of Champions before losing a dual at Gardner-Edgerton, 39-27, to close out the December schedule. As far as Wright-Conklin is concerned, LHS lost to the Trailblazers (ranked No. 5) because of the negative side effects that come with being ranked at the top.


said. “Every time I needed something, I looked over to him and he would help me out. It probably got really annoying for him, actually. But he showed me how to be a leader, how to handle things. Dayne’s just the ideal quarterback and the ideal person.” Added safety Harrison Smith: “You’re never going to meet a better guy than Dayne.”


the Jayhawks because of the addition of Crist and Heaps. “As a wide receiver, if I was a senior in high school and I was being recruited by a bunch of schools, and I found out that one of them just landed two five-star quarterbacks who have had some success in college and are going to be coached by one of the brightest QB minds in football, I would definitely have to give that school a serious, serious look,” said former KU wide receiver Harrison Hill. The general consensus among those who cover recruiting and follow the KU program is that the Jayhawks are in line to see a recruiting haul like never before because of the star power of Weis’ two high-profile QBs. But even those with a good handle on the recruiting business, like Jon Kirby, of, a 13-year veteran of tracking KU recruiting, admit it’s impossible to predict how this will play out for KU because it’s never been seen before. “The answer to that question is, yes, I believe it will have an impact on other players wanting to follow,” Kirby said. “Can I tell you that from experience? No. Because Kansas has never had these types of kids come in. It’s uncharted waters.” Hill, who ranks 10th on KU’s all-time receptions list, said he would not be surprised to see some big-time prep receivers add the Jayhawks to their lists because of the Jayhawks’ upgrade at quarterback.

“Number one, I feel like some of the guys had a little cockiness with it,” the 11-0 senior captain said. “I think that’s what happened at Gardner-Edgerton. We came in with a big head, thinking we’re number one, and some guys didn’t come to wrestle.” Lynch was out for the dual loss, but Wright-Conklin said that was no excuse and the Lions should learn a lesson from the setback and be better prepared because of it. Following the setback, Denning said, the Lions responded by working harder at practice. He said they will further “kick it up a notch” once practice resumes after the holiday break. From there, Naughton said, Lawrence needs to get back to its schedule with renewed focus — “Our expectations are we want to win everything that we’re entered in,” he said. With so many highly regarded wrestlers, LHS might have the pieces to eventually contend for a state title. Said Wilson: “We got the lineup that coaches would die for.”

FORMER BYU QUARTERBACK JAKE HEAPS (9) THROWS a pass against Mississippi in this file photo from Sept. 3 in Oxford, Miss. Heaps announced this week that he will transfer to Kansas University for the upcoming season.

FORMER NOTRE DAME HEAD COACH, AND CURRENT KANSAS UNIVERSITY COACH, CHARLIE WEIS gives instructions as he puts in quarterback Dayne Crist against Washington State in this file photo from Oct. 31, 2009. Crist has decided to transfer to Kansas, where the former Notre Dame quarterback will be reunited with coach Weis.

“Those are the guys who throw you the ball,” said Hill, a former captain whose KU career (1997-2001) was cut short a season because of severe dehydration issues. “Knowing their talent level and the accolades they’ve received, I would see that as a huge advantage, there’s no question.” Like many within the KU football community, Hill found himself extremely excited about KU’s new quarterbacks when he heard the news on Thursday. But Hill’s excitement runs beyond be-

More on Crist After the news broke that Crist was coming to Kansas, those who know him or played with him at Notre Dame, stepped forward, one by one, and offered their support for the quarterback who was 4-6 as a starter at Notre Dame from 2008-11. Some cheered Crist’s news on Twitter. Others shared their thoughts in interviews with various publications. The one thing that was consistent in all of the reaction was that people genuinely liked the Canoga Park,

ing a former player or a fan of the program. Hill, a native of Wichita and former prep standout at Wichita Collegiate, said the addition of Crist and Heaps signaled a turn in the right direction for the Jayhawks. “When these guys were being recruited, they saw some of the best schools in the country,” Hill said. “For them to pick Kansas must mean that they feel good about what we have here, and they believe that they could come in and get things rolling. It’s exciting.”

Calif., native for who he was as a person, not just as a football player. “I’m thrilled for Dayne,” Notre Dame athletic director, Jack Swarbrick, told Pete Thamel of The New York Times. “He’s one of the great young men to ever be with us, and he found a good home.” Two of Crist’s Notre Dame teammates shared their thoughts with Brian Hamilton of the Chicago Tribune: “Words cannot describe what Dayne meant to this team, what he meant to me,” quarterback Andrew Hendrix

KU’s QB picture With Crist and Heaps coming to KU for the spring semester, that brings the total number of quarterbacks on KU’s roster to six, not counting quarterbacks-turned-receivers Kale Pick and Christian Matthews. Included in that group, with Crist and Heaps, are: twoyear starter and junior-to-be Jordan Webb; sophomore-tobe Blake Jablonski; and a pair of true freshmen who sat out 2011 in Brock Berglund and Michael Cummings. While it seems likely that one or two of those guys will elect to continue his playing career somewhere else, there has been no official word from KU or any of the players about possible transfers. Berglund, who graduated high school early and was supposed to join the Jayhawks last spring, ran into legal trouble and missed the entire season. When last contacted by the Journal-World in late November, Berglund, who will stand trial for thirddegree assault in Colorado’s Douglas County Jan. 10-12, said his plan was to stick with the Jayhawks and return to campus Jan. 17. Berglund said he planned to participate in spring practices, and he might emerge as Crist’s main competition next season.

No. 4 Louisville rallies to beat WKU The Associated Press

No. 4 Louisville 70, Western Kentucky 60 LAS VEGAS — Russ Smith scored 23 points and Louisville overcame a sleepy start and rallied from an eightpoint deficit in the second half to beat Western Kentucky on Friday night. Gorgui Dieng had 13 points and 15 rebounds — his fifth straight double-double — for the Cardinals (12-0) who remained one of the nation’s six unbeaten Division I teams. Kyle Kuric added 15 points, 12 coming in the first half. Trailing 50-47 following a layup by Jamal Crook with 8:49 remaining, Louisville reeled off 14 straight points, half from Smith. Western Kentucky went on a 7-0 run with Nigel Snipes’ threepointer making it 61-57 at the 1:14 mark.

Wagner 59, No. 15 Pittsburgh 54 PITTSBURGH — Latif Rivers scored all 18 of his points in the second half — including

six free throws in the final minute — to lead Wagner to the upset. Kenneth Ortiz had 12 points for the Seahawks (83), who won their first game over a ranked opponent since knocking off then-No. 15 Alabama on Nov. 24, 1978. Pitt (11-2) saw its nine-game winning streak snapped. Ashton Gibbs scored 14 points for the Panthers, who turned it over 18 times while losing to a Northeastern Conference opponent for the first time ever. The Panthers came in 70-0 all-time against NEC foes, but struggled against Wagner’s pressure and never led over the game’s final 33 minutes. Pitt drew as close as three points twice in the final 36 seconds but Rivers hit six straight free throws. Pitt started the season with just one loss at home to a non-Big East opponent in the Petersen Events Center’s first nine seasons but has lost to Long Beach State and Wagner this season.

No. 6 Baylor 83, West Virginia 81, OT LAS VEGAS — Pierre Jackson scored eight consecutive points during regulation and overtime to lift Baylor to a victory over West Virginia on Friday night in the Las Vegas Classic championship game. Jackson finished with 23 points while Brady Heslip added 19 and Quincy Acy had 15. Baylor (12-0), one of six unbeatens in Division I, tied the game at 76 on Jackson’s 3-pointer with 18 seconds left in regulation. The Bears led 83-78 with 2:02 left in overtime following another three by Jackson and field goals by Gary Franklin and Acy. Jabarie Hinds’ three-pointer brought the Mountaineers (9-3) within 83-81, but his shot at the buzzer fell short of the rim. Kevin Jones had 28 points and 17 rebounds for the Mountaineers while Hinds had 18 points and seven assists and Darryl Bryant had 16 points. The Mountaineers rallied from a 69-63 deficit and tied the score on consecutive three-pointers by Hinds and Bryant. They took the lead for the first time since halftime at 74-71 when Bryant made three free throws with 2:51 left.

Fedora, No. 22 Southern Miss take on Nevada in Holiday Bowl HONOLULU (AP) — As if being 5,500 miles from Hattiesburg and having Waikiki beach as a backyard wasn’t enough, Conference USA champion Southern Mississippi had to deal with even more distractions. The 22nd-ranked Golden Eagles (11-2) face Western Athletic Conference runner-up Nevada (7-5) in the Hawaii Bowl today in what will be the final game under coach Larry Fedora. “It’s going to be tough. There’s a piece of my heart and soul in this football team,” said Fedora, who is leaving after four seasons to lead North Carolina. “I deeply care about each and every one of those kids. ... But I do know, they’re going to look back at this season and say we won however many games, a conference championship and we went to Ha-

waii. That’s what they’ll remember for the rest of their lives.” Southern Miss won a school-record 11 games this season en route to capturing its fifth C-USA title by upsetting Houston 49-28 in the conference championship game behind Austin Davis’ four touchdown passes. It was the Golden Eagles’ first 10-win sea- Fedora son since 1988. Despite the record year, Davis said the team isn’t done yet as Southern Miss makes its 10th straight postseason appearance and is looking to snap a two-bowl losing streak.

“I would hate to end it on a bad note. We want to finish strong and get No. 12,” said Davis, who has thrown for 3,331 yards and 28 touchdowns this year. Fedora said his team isn’t letting down after its big win over Houston. “You can go out and watch practice and you wouldn’t know if it was Aug. 5, the first day of practice for us, or if it was the next to the last practice. They’re still practicing the same way,” he said. “They understand what it takes. They understand how important it is. We’re not playing another game. We’re making history at Southern Miss.” Fedora is being replaced by South Carolina defensive coordinator Ellis Johnson, who was introduced in Hattiesburg while the team was in Honolulu.

“There’s a lot of distractions going on with this football team and their future. So that makes it difficult,” Fedora said. “The thing is, I’ve got to allow these seniors ... they’re going to be the ones that lead us through the distractions. I expect us to play as we do week in and week out.” While Southern Miss is making its first trip here since beating Hawaii in 1977, Nevada is no stranger to the islands, or the Hawaii Bowl. Nevada is making its seventh straight postseason appearance and 12th overall. It will be playing in the Hawaii Bowl for the third time since 2005. Nevada defeated Central Florida 49-48 in overtime in 2005 and lost to SMU 45-10 in 2009. “We’ve been here. It’s great and beautiful and we love it here, but for us, it’s a busi-

ness trip,” Nevada defensive tackle Brett Roy said. “We know what we’re here to do.” Featuring a high-powered offense that ranks fifth in the nation with 522.8 yards a game and eighth in rushing (251.8), Nevada is coming off a roller coaster year where it started 1-3 and won five straight before losing to Louisiana Tech and Utah State, blowing its chances for a conference title in its final season in the WAC before moving to the Mountain West Conference. “We want to get that bad taste out of our mouths,” said Roy, who is eighth in the nation in both sacks (10) and tackles for loss (18.5). “In order to do that, we have to go through Southern Miss, which is a high-caliber team.” Quarterback Cody Fajardo, who didn’t start until

the fifth game, runs Nevada’s potent pistol. He has passed for 1,647 yards and six scores while rushing for 680 yards and 11 TDs. Nevada also has Rishard Matthews, who has caught 91 passes for 1,364 yards and eight TDs. The Wolf Pack will be trying to pressure Davis, who has a quartet of capable running backs and his favorite receivers, Kelvin Bolden and Ryan Balentine. Nevada is hoping Southern Miss had its fill of Hawaii and a week that included a luau and trip to Pearl Harbor. “Hopefully they’re all swimming, all tired and surfing up a storm,” Roy said. Fedora said he wants his players to enjoy Hawaii because they have earned it. But they’ll be ready at kickoff. “They’re enjoying their free time and when it’s time to go, we go,” he said.

Common ground unites James, Wade in Year 2 Putting fresh names on community health.

MIAMI (AP) — Dwyane Wade and LeBron James are known to bicker like brothers. They screamed at one another more than once during Miami Heat playoff games last season. And when they’re on opposite teams in practice, they attack the other like they would any opponent. Now they’re closer than ever. And on the cusp of entering Year 2 together with the Heat, Wade and James opened up about their friendship Friday in an interview with The Associated Press. “I don’t think many players that have the similar games as we have or have done the things that we did in the league can come together this fast and make it work,” Wade said. “That communication is there. I don’t mind him saying something to me. I don’t mind when I have to say something to him. We know how to make it work.” They have so much in common that both find it almost funny sometimes. Forget the obvious stuff: They’re both among the NBA’s highest-paid players, then make another truckload of money annually in endorsements. They’re both among the league’s best scorers, perennial All-Stars, among the most recognizable athletes in the world. What’s often forgotten is the ties that really bind, like both having difficult times as kids, relying on one parent at a time and soon understanding that basketball was the vehicle for changing their lives. James is 6-foot-8, Wade is 6-foot-4. James is from Akron, Wade from Chicago. James loves tattoos, Wade doesn’t have any. James went to the NBA straight out of high school, Wade went to college first. Nonetheless, Wade and James basically look at each other as mirror images. “That had a lot to do with me coming down here,” James said. “There’s nothing that I’ve seen that he hasn’t seen, and vice versa. To be able to be alongside him, be with him every day and basically go through the same

Sometimes you’re able to sit back and see things from a different perspective instead of everybody watching you.” They take their cues from each other, whether it is fashion, workout regimens or just where to sit sometimes. For Friday’s post-practice interview, Wade slid his body down a wall in a room adjacent to the Heat training facility, slumping to the floor. “Tired,” Wade said. Two minutes later, James entered the room. Even though he didn’t see how Wade took his seat, he did the same thing, putting his back to the wall and sliding to the red carpet. “Tired,” James said. Maybe it’s more than a coincidence. “What’s the saying? Iron sharpens iron. Greatness breeds greatness,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “So you see an example of that next to you. Those guys want to be challenged. Those guys like to be challenged. They do not accept the success that they’ve had and where they are right now. They’re always trying to push to go to the next level. And there’s no better way for them to do that than to have an equal peer next to them, pushing them.” The biggest question when Wade, James and Chris Bosh teamed up in July 2010 was will it work? There have been bumps in the road, and likely there will be a few more — but they are making it work.

James finished second in the league in scoring, Wade finished fourth. Of course, numbers aren’t everything and Dallas beat Miami in last season’s finals. And James and Wade will get yet another reminder of that defeat Sunday when the Heat open their season against the Mavericks — and watch the new champs raise their banner. “For us, getting better is not necessarily going to show in our numbers,” Wade said. “It’s going to show in our leadership. It’s going to show in those moments where we get in those games like the finals where we’re up 10 in the fourth quarter, how do we help our team get that win no matter what’s going on in the game. It’s moreso that, not just how we score the ball, rebound, pass. We’re going to have those numbers. It’s the other things.” Last year in training camp, Wade and James wanted to be on separate teams in practice. This year, with an abbreviated training camp and the core of last year’s Eastern Conference championship team back, the mano-a-mano matchups haven’t happened much, their preference being to keep Miami’s first unit together as much as possible to get sharp for the season. That’s fine with James and Wade. “I’d rather not go against him,” James said. “We’re two competitors. We go against each other at practice at times. But I’ve found it’s definitely better to have him by my side.”

Arthur has surgery, will sit out season

Uninsured residents camp out all night to receive free dental care

Aerobics may cut risk of dementia

MEMPHIS, TENN. — Memphis Grizzlies forward Darrell Arthur has had season-ending surgery to repair a torn right Achilles tendon. The team announced Friday that Arthur, a fourth-year pro out Arthur of Kansas University, is expected to be ready for the 2012-13 season. He suffered the injury Dec. 18.

Last season Arthur averaged 9.1 points and shot about 50 percent in his third NBA season.

Pierce might miss Celtics’ opener WALTHAM, MASS. — Celtics guard Paul Pierce didn’t practice Friday because of a nagging heel injury and might not play in Boston’s season opener against the Knicks in New York on Christmas Day. Pierce did shoot around after the session, but coach Doc Rivers wasn’t optimistic his captain would be available Sunday, when the Celtics and Knicks are playing

one of the NBA’s five season openers. “He didn’t do anything,” Rivers said. “He seemed to be working more as far as working out, so we’ll see. I still think it’s doubtful, but we’ll see.” “I think we’ll know better (Saturday). Paul may wake up and say, ‘Coach, I wanna go.’ Pierce I can tell you this, it’s very unlikely he’ll start if he plays. I don’t think that’ll happen. If he does play, he’ll play 15 to 20 minutes, but right now, I don’t see him playing.”

What’s special to you about Christmas Eve services? ——————

The late-night stillness recalls the moment of Jesus’ birth Joel Limes and Elisabeth Betzen Partners, all of Columbus. The couple plan a March 9, 2012, wedding in Middleton Place Historic Plantation, Charleston, S.C.

The Rev. Rob Baldwin, pastor, Trinity Episcopal Church, 1011 Vt.: There is a moment that comes every Christmas season, without fail, that I absolutely love. It happens right after the late service Christmas Eve. I’ve been through the pageantry and sound and the mass of people that attend the service, and then I drive

home and everything outside is still. I go out into my backyard, even in the biting cold, and am struck by the massive Baldwin absence of sound, the perfect stillness of the moonlit night. I look up at

the stars, and take everything in. It reminds me of what that first night must have been like for the shepherds, furtively grazing their sheep in some field, or the quiet stable where a pair of new parents try to care of their child. It is surprising how much noise exists in our day-to-day existence, and in that silent

moment I can talk to God apart from the rush and excitement and responsibilities of the season. It renews my sense of awe about God to see the majesty of the starry universe, and I have a chance to be thankful for the gift of Jesus Christ into a dark and beautiful world. — Rob Baldwin can be reached at

Christmas Eve service is a refreshing and special evening

The Rev. Barry Watts, Associate Pastor, Lawrence Heights Christian Church, 2321 Peterson Road: Christmas is a time of many family traditions and for my family, a Christmas Eve service is at the center of our remembrance of Christ’s birth. While liturgical traditions and customary practices can be effective in bringing a congregation to worship, the danger of following any kind of standardized worship schedule is losing the

important meaning behind each act of worship. The Christmas Eve service at Lawrence H e i g h t s C h r i s t i a n Watts Church allows the Lord to reveal himself in a new and refreshing way. Candlelight, carols and communion are a part of this special evening. Christmas Eve is a time

our family gathers together to give God praise for the birth of Christ. In addition, this year, for the first time since 2005, we will have the opportunity to celebrate Christmas during our regular Sunday worship. What an awesome opportunity to worship God and give him the honor and glory for sending us his son and the gift of his grace. What are my plans this year? My family will join my church family at 6 p.m. Dec. 24 at Lawrence Heights

Christian Church. Then, we will wake up early Sunday morning and open gifts with my young child. At 10:30 a.m., we will take advantage of the rare opportunity to sit in God’s House on Christmas Day, during Sunday worship, and thank him for the sacrifice of his son for us, the undeserving sinners. I cannot think of a better way to celebrate the true reason for the season.

What should I do when her behavior becomes unacceptable? — Nine Months Left on the Lease Dear Nine Months: Jennifer is not being particularly accommodating, but this is a one-bedroom apartment, and when you have a guest over, she feels crowded out. It would help if she periodiboyfriend and I would sit in cally entertained friends as the living room chatting and well, but she doesn’t, so she watching TV for a couple of reacts poorly to yours. One hours. Nothing else. Jennifer would pointedly sequester herself in the bedroom, and after he left, she would snidely imply that we should hang out somewhere else. A couple of times, she left in a huff during his visit, only to return later and ignore me for the rest of the night. My boyfriend is a nice guy, and we take pains not to show affection in public. He never stays too long or comes over at odd hours. Most importantly, he visits less than once a week. Annie, am I wrong to feel entitled to visits from my boyfriend in my own apartment? Jennifer and I are both new to the area and are still making friends. I worry that she would behave the same way if I were to bring other

The schedule unwraps traditions and marathons

Christmas may be upon us, but Hallmark’s more than 1,300 hours of holiday programming will continue until New Year’s Day and beyond. Typical of Hallmark’s offerings is the 2006 tearjerker “The Christmas Card” (5 p.m. Saturday), starring John Newton (”Desperate Housewives”). He’s a soldier stationed in Afghanistan who receives an unsigned Christmas card. Moved by the anonymous missive, he hunts down the sender (Alice Evans) after he returns from his tour of duty. And wouldn’t you know it, he’s smitten. Ed Asner and Lois Nettleton costar. O Those looking for a less saccharine view of the holiday are likely anticipating the 15th anniversary of the 24-hour marathon of “A Christmas Story” (7 p.m. Saturday to 7 p.m. Sunday, TBS). Are you wondering whatever happened to Peter Billingsley, the child actor who played Ralphie? Over the past three decades, he has continued to act, produce and direct. He directed the romantic comedy “Couples Retreat,” starring Vince Vaughn and Jon Favreau. Billingsley’s association with those actors also includes small parts in “Elf” (directed by Favreau) and “Four Christmases,” starring Vaughn and Favreau. It looks like Ralphie has grown up to beSongwriter-bandleader come a “Swinger.” Dave Bartholomew is 91. Author Mary Higgins Saturday’s highlights Clark is 84.

Rock 1947 holiday favorite “Miracle on 34th singer-musician Lemmy Street” (7 p.m., TCM). O “The Nerdist: Year in Review” (8 p.m., BBC America) counts down the year’s geekiest events. O Two hours of murder on “48 Hours Mystery” (8 p.m., CBS). O Matt Smith, Russell Kane and the Military Wives Choir appear on the Christmas special episode of “The Graham Norton Show” (9 p.m., BBC America). O Eugene Mirman, Hannibal Buress, Mo Rocca and Andrea Rosen ponder on “Would You Rather? With Graham Norton” (10 p.m., BBC America).

Cult choice Judy Garland sings “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” in the 1944 melodrama “Meet Me in St. Louis” (5 p.m. Saturday, TCM), directed by Vincente Minnelli, who married Garland the next year. Tinged with longing and sadness, the song, written by Hugh Martin and Ralph Blane, would be used in other, much darker films, including “The Victors,” ‘‘The Godfather” and “Donnie Brasco.” Saturday series A kidnapped girl’s druggy boyfriend becomes a suspect on “Blue Bloods” (7 p.m., CBS) ...

solution would be to invite over a couple of new people and do something together. Another is to see your boyfriend at his place. But you also should discuss this with Jennifer and ask how you can alleviate her discomfort when your boyfriend drops by.

JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS For Saturday, Dec. 24: This year your birthday falls on a New Moon, creating a new beginning in an area of your life. This lunar position bestows charisma and creativity. If you are single, you have a slew of admirers and would-be suitors. If you are attached, make sure to keep the balance between you as a couple. Capricorn reads through your defenses. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult Aries (March 21-April 19) ++++ You might not be as open as others would like. Your organizational abilities come out. Tonight: Opt for a new beginning. Taurus (April 20-May 20) +++++ Keep reaching out for distant friends you want to wish holiday cheer. Tonight: Put on some music and break out the eggnog. Gemini (May 21-June 20) ++++ Deal with one other person directly, and then another person, and then one more.

“bye” to, but no more — mean a lot. Tonight: A little more tame than usual. Cancer (June 21-July 22) +++++ Others request your talents and companionship. Though a sudden change could toss plans to the wayside, you accomplish a lot quite quickly. Tonight: The only answer is “yes.” Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) +++ You emanate joy nearly everywhere, yet suddenly you become very practical. Some will be relieved to see that side of you emerge. Tonight: Giving 100 percent of yourself. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) ++++ You wake up acting like a 5-year-old getting ready to greet Christmas. Every so often, the child in you emerges.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) +++++ You might be very happy at the thought of the upcoming holiday. Or you could be

overwhelmed and/or tired of the celebration. Tonight: You know what to do. Sagittarius (Nov. 22Dec. 21) +++ Last-minute errands or a forgotten gift could have you running, whether you like it or not. Tonight: Don’t go overboard. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) +++++ You glide through the day, perhaps the result of excellent planning, but also because you don’t have too many expectations. Tonight: Flex with a change. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) +++ A general feeling of malaise or concern permeates your mood. If you haven’t connected with a key person, don’t stand on ceremony — make it so. Tonight: How about some eggnog? Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) +++++ Zero in on the moment. At the last minute, you could opt to invite friends over or join friends at some point in the day. Tonight: Seize the moment. — The astrological forecast should be read for entertainment only.

Dear Annie: I’ve begun to develop strong feelings for one of my managers at work. She is beautiful both inside and out and fun to be around. When I am near her, I behave properly, but inside, my heart is going pitter-pat. I want to do the honorable thing and keep our relationship strictly professional, but I don’t want to miss an opportunity. There are certain things she does around me that come across as flirting, but it’s possible I am misreading her. What should I do? — Hopelessly Smitten Dear Smitten: Is this woman in a position of authority over you? If so, any relationship could put her job in jeopardy, and we recommend you keep it strictly business until one of you leaves the company. Otherwise, the usual caveats apply. Forming personal relationships at work can be risky because if things don’t work out, you still have to be around this person every day — or quit your job. The choice is yours. Dear Annie: My roommate, “Jennifer,” and I began sharing a one-bedroom apartment a few months ago. The problem is her behavior when my boyfriend visits. Each time, I have politely asked whether she minded his coming over. She replies that it’s fine with her. My
