KU study brings about diversity initiatives ———

Professor found that blacks are far less likely to get NIH funding Richard Gwin/Journal-World Photos

GENE AND DIANE WALLACE are living in their recreational vehicle at Campground 3 at Clinton State Park with their two cats. Unlike some of the permanent residents at the campsite, the Wallaces — who lived in Lawrence before becoming full-time RV residents in August 2011 — were not prepared to weather the winter in their vehicle, below, but found themselves stuck after transmission repairs and a hotel stay set them back financially.

Law enforcement agencies eager for technology upgrades, but fear further budget reductions By Ian Cummings icummings@ljworld.com

Douglas County’s law enforcement agencies and courts are looking forward to technology upgrades in 2013 even as they warily await next year’s round of state, county and city budget discussions. Upgrades to emergency communication and court filing systems are already

approved and set to begin in the new year, while other improvements await funding. The biggest question for many judges and law enforcement leaders in Lawrence is whether next year’s budgets will give them money to fully staff their high-tech agencies. Here’s more about new

Too often, Donna Ginther says, when a researcher completes a study, it’s published in a journal and then more or less forgotten. But that’s not what happened with some findings that the KU economist published last year. Earlier this month, the National Institutes of Health announced new measures aimed at creating more diversity in the field of medical research. The move was in direct response to a study led by Ginther that resulted in some troubling findings: that black researchers were one-third less likely than their white counterparts to receive NIH funding. “It’s changed how the agency thinks about these issues and how it’s going to deal with these issues going forward,” said Ginther, a professor of economics and the director of KU’s Center for Science Technology and Economic Policy. The federal medical reKANSAS search agency on Dec. 7 announced several different UNIVERSITY initiatives aiming to address the diversity problem from several angles. They include a new program for undergraduate students that will give them research experience and financial support, in hopes of increasing diversity in Ph.D. programs; a mentoring program that will connect less-experienced researchers with veteran scientists; and a pilot program that would make NIH grant applications totally anonymous. Those changes were recommended by a panel that formed in response to Ginther’s study last year. Work on that study, commissioned by the NIH in an effort to examine the medical-research workforce, began back in 2008. The results were published in the journal Science in August 2011. “We’re becoming more diverse as a country,” Ginther said. “That’s not reflected in the makeup of the biomedical workforce.” Her study, which examined grant applications to the NIH from 2000 to 2006, found that black applicants were much less likely Please see DIVERSITY, page 2A

HOW TO HELP Gene and Diane Wallace have turned to technology in hopes of raising money to escape their current home at Clinton State Park for a warmer climate. The couple fell behind financially after the transmission on their RV went out. They’re hooked up to electricity at the park’s year-round Campground 3, but their RV isn’t winterized. They don’t have the money to upgrade it, to drive farther south or go back to apartment living even if they wanted to. “We didn’t want to meet winter in Lawrence,” Gene Wallace said. In hopes of getting help, the Wallaces set up a project who even have a tiny fenced-in yard to roam in. Her trailer has plywood skirting around the base to help insulate it, propane heat and running water, though in the wintertime — when campsite water hookups and all but one of the shower houses are shut down — she has to fill up tanks of water at the park dump station then drive them back to hook them up to her home. It’s not her favorite thing, she said, but it’s not that big of a deal. “The only thing that sucks about winter is you don’t get to go out as much,” Foster said. “But in the summertime you’re hardly inside.” Foster said she lived at the lake years ago, moved to town to raise her family, then moved back for the neighborhood’s peace, quiet and wildlife. She works in the park office. Several of Foster’s neighbors have lived at the park longer than she has. Many work during the day and come home to Campground 3 at night. Some also do chores at the campsite — cleaning bathrooms or mowing — in exchange for part of their camping fees.

 

Some less-permanent Campground 3 residents live in tents or vans. These are the types of residents Lawrence Community Shelter employees hear about. In the past week, as the cold set in, the downtown homeless shelter has filled up at night and turned people away, shelter director Loring Henderson said. But that’s not why most of the Campground 3 residents seek out spots at Clinton Park. “People choose it because it’s a little more freedom than coming to

on the crowd-funding website, indiegogo.com. They’ve raised about $300 of their $500 goal for “survival money,” but Gene Wallace said he expects it will take more for them to get back on their feet and back on the road. A few relatives and friends have contributed a little, he said, but they don’t have the means to do more. The rest of the money has come from strangers. “They’re not rich, either,” Diane Wallace said. “Yet they’re helping us out.” Find the Wallaces’ project online at indiegogo.com/projects/302219. a shelter where there are rules,” Henderson said. “That’s the difference, I think, that drives them. They want their independence as much as possible.” Shelter case manager Brian Blevins said he’s suggested that some families move to the lake. In other cases, he’s “rescued” people, such as a woman and four children, living in tents, who were stranded with no way to get to town for food when the man of the family took off. Lake living allows some families to save up money to move into an apartment, Blevins said. “I’ve seen a lot of really smart moves, and I’ve seen a lot of people just rationalize, ‘This is all I can do,’” he said. “You’ve got both ends of the spectrum.” Blevins said there are similar neighborhoods at other state lakes. Especially in this economy, he said, the unconventional housing choice doesn’t surprise him. If authorities ever hear of children in danger — such as the couple Blevins recalled leaving the shelter to camp at the lake in sub-freezing temperatures with a newborn — they can contact the Kansas Department for Children and Families to intervene. But adults, Blevins said, prepared for the elements or not, mentally ill or not, can make their home wherever the law allows, and for residents who pay their campsite fees that includes Clinton State Park. “Adults ... have the freedom to go out there and freeze to death, and that bites,” Blevins said. “It’s very frustrating for us.”

In the end, commissioners decided to hire an independent engineer to review the material and make a recommendation.

The judges will be watching the Legislature next year to see what kind of funding it provides to the court. Last fiscal year, funding shortfalls forced the court to put employees on furlough and close its doors for a day. Two years before that, the court closed for five days. Fairchild said he and the other judges will also follow discussions in the Legislature about changing the appointment process for appellate court judges. He said he approved of the current system and disliked the idea of introducing more politics into the courts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Who do you want to be the judges?â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hopefully, you want the best lawyers.

in line with neighboring cities such as Lenexa and Overland Park. Khatib said the department needs resources to combat rising trends in financial crimes and mental health crises in Lawrence. Credit card ripoffs, identity thefts and Internet scams are increasing, he said, and the departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clearance rate is too low. The department has not been able to dedicate a detective to solving them full time. At the same time, the number of mental-illnessrelated calls officers have responded to each year has doubled over the past decade, reaching 1,651 in 2010 along with 369 attempted suicides. Each one of these cases, Khatib said, can be complicated and time-consuming, leaving officers less time to clamp down on violations such as drunken driving. Talks at City Hall about a new facility that could house the police departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s patrol and investigation divisions under one roof have gained support from city leaders this year, but thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been no action yet. Khatib said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s made his case and is waiting to see if the money will be there. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Of course, everything depends on the economy,â&#x20AC;?

Snowstorms donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ease drought ST.

Ruf said it was unusual for such an agency to do all three at once. Altogether, it will cost about $8 million.

GODDARD (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A family in south-central Kansas has learned that a 2-inch layer of ice over a frigid pond isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enough to support a small dog. KWCH-TV reported that a 7-year-old beagle named Bear slipped under a fence around a wastewater lagoon at his ownersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; home Wednesday and fell through the ice. Owner Patricia Wilson, of Goddard, says she tried to rescue Bear, but she fell into the water, too. Bear was rescued after nearly an hour by Sedgwick County Fire crews wearing special cold-weather wet suits. The beagleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s temperature was down to 83 degrees â&#x20AC;&#x201D; more than 15 below normal â&#x20AC;&#x201D; when he reached the veterinarianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office. He was reported to be recovering later Wednesday. Wilson says sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll keep all of her dogs indoors for now.

Obama invites congressional leaders to cliff talk ——————

As deadline approaches, Democrats and Republicans point fingers at each other By David Espo Associated Press

WASHINGTON — A deadline looming, President Barack Obama will meet with congressional leaders at the White House today in search of a compromise to avoid a year-end “fiscal cliff” of across-theboard tax increases and deep spending cuts. The development capped a day of growing urgency in which Obama returned early from a Hawaiian vacation while lawmakers snarled across a partisan divide over responsibility for gridlock on key pocketbook issues. Speaker John Boehner called the House back into session for a highly unusual Sunday evening session.

Adding to the woes confronting the middle class was a pending spike of $2 per gallon or more in milk prices if lawmakers failed to pass farm legislation by year’s end. Four days before the deadline, the White House disputed reports that Obama was sending lawmakers a scaleddown plan Obama to avoid the fiscal cliff of tax increases and spending cuts. Administration officials confirmed the Friday meeting at the White House in a bare-bones announcement that said the president would “host a

meeting.” An aide to Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell said the Kentucky lawmaker “is eager to hear from the president.” A spokesman for House Speaker John Boehner issued a statement that said the Ohio Republican would attend and “continue to stress that the House has already passed legislation to avert the entire fiscal cliff and now the Senate must act.” While there was no guarantee of a compromise, Republicans and Democrats said privately elements of any agreement would likely include an extension of middle class tax cuts with increased rates at upper incomes as well as cancellation of the

Desert Storm commander Norman Schwarzkopf dies By Lolita C. Baldor and Mitch Stacy Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Truth is, retired Gen. H. Norman Schwarzkopf didn’t care much for his popular “Stormin’ Norman” nickname. The seemingly no-nonsense Desert Storm commander’s reputed temper with aides and subordinates supposedly earned him that rough-and-ready moniker. But others around the general, who died Thursday in Tampa, Fla., at age 78 from complications from pneumonia, knew him as a friendly, talkative and even jovial figure who preferred the somewhat milder sobriquet given by his troops: “The Bear.” That one perhaps suited him better later in his life, when he supported vari-

ous national causes and children’s charities while eschewing the spotlight and resisting efforts to draft him to run for political office. He lived out a quiet retirement in Tampa, where he’d served his last military assignment and Schwarzkopf where an elementary school bearing his name is testament to his standing in the community. Schwarzkopf capped an illustrious military career by commanding the U.S.led international coalition that drove Saddam Hussein’s forces out of Kuwait in 1991 — but he’d managed to keep a low profile in the public debate

over the second Gulf War against Iraq, saying at one point that he doubted victory would be as easy as the White House and the Pentagon predicted. Schwarzkopf was named commander in chief of U.S. Central Command at Tampa’s MacDill Air Force Base in 1988, overseeing the headquarters for U.S. military and security concerns in nearly two dozen countries stretching across the Middle East to Afghanistan and the rest of central Asia, plus Pakistan. When Saddam invaded Kuwait two years later to punish it for allegedly stealing Iraqi oil reserves, Schwarzkopf commanded Operation Desert Storm, the coalition of some 30 countries organized by President George H.W. Bush that succeeded in driving the Iraqis out.

scheduled spending cuts. An extension of expiring unemployment benefits, a reprieve for doctors who face a cut in Medicare payments and possibly a short-term measure to prevent dairy prices from soaring could also become part of a year-end bill, they said. That would postpone politically contentious disputes over spending cuts for 2013. Top Senate leaders said they remain ready to seek a last-minute agreement. Yet there was no legislation pending and no sign of negotiations in either the House or the Senate on a bill to prevent the tax hikes and spending cuts that economists say could send the economy into a recession.

Far from conciliatory, the rhetoric was confrontational and at times unusually personal. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., accused Boehner of running a dictatorship, citing his refusal to call a vote on legislation to keep taxes steady for most while letting them rise at upper incomes. The bill “would pass overwhelmingly,” Reid predicted, and said the Ohio Republican won’t change his mind because he fears it might cost him re-election as speaker when the new Congress convenes next week. Boehner seems “to care more about keeping his speakership than keeping the nation on a firm financial footing,” he said in remarks on the Senate floor.

BRIEFLY Opposition leaders under investigation CAIRO — Egypt’s chief prosecutor ordered an investigation on Thursday into allegations that opposition leaders committed treason by inciting supporters to overthrow Islamist President Mohammed Morsi. The probe by a Morsiappointed prosecutor was launched a day after the president called for a dialogue with the opposition to heal rifts opened in the bitter fight over an Islamist-drafted constitution just approved in a referendum. The opposition decried the investigation as a throwback to Hosni Mubarak’s regime, when the law was used to smear and silence opponents. The probe was almost certain to sour the already tense political atmosphere in the country.

Chief of staff: Bush cough. He had spent about week there earlier in getting excellent care aNovember for treatment of HOUSTON — Former President George H.W. Bush, who has been hospitalized for more than a month, is getting excellent medical treatment and would advise people to “put the harps back in the closet,” his longtime Houston chief of staff said Thursday evening. But Jean Becker also pointed out in her statement that the 88-year-old Bush is sick and likely will be in the hospital for a while after a “terrible case of bronchitis which then triggered a series of complications.” Bush, the oldest living former president, has been in intensive care since Sunday. He was admitted to Methodist Hospital in Houston on Nov. 23 for treatment of what his spokesman Jim McGrath described as a “stubborn”

the same condition. Becker said “most of the civilized world” contacted her Wednesday after disclosures Bush had been placed in the intensive care unit after physicians were having difficulty bringing a fever under control. She said updates about Bush’s condition have been limited “out of respect for President Bush and the Bush family who, like most of us, prefer to deal with health issues in privacy.” She said another factor was “because he is so beloved we knew everyone would overreact.”

CONCORD, N.H. — A muted version of a winter storm that has killed more than a dozen people across the eastern half of the country plodded across the Northeast on Thursday, trapping airliners in snow or mud and frustrating travelers still trying to return home after Christmas. The storm, which was blamed for at least 16 deaths farther south and west, brought plenty of wind, rain and snow to the Northeast when it blew in Wednesday night. Lights generally remained on and cars mostly stayed on the road, unlike many harderhit places including Arkansas, where 200,000 homes and businesses lost power. By afternoon, the precipitation had stopped in parts of Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Massachusetts, though snow continued to fall in upstate New York and northern New England. Parts of snow-savvy New Hampshire expected as much as 18 inches. The Northeast’s heaviest snowfall was in northern Pennsylvania, upstate New York and inland sections of several New England states. The storm was expected to head into Canada today, National Weather Service spokesman David Roth said. While the East Coast’s largest cities — New York, Philadelphia and Boston — saw mostly high winds and cold rain, other areas experienced a messy mix of rain and snow that slowed commuters and those still heading home from holiday trips. Some inbound flights were delayed in Philadelphia and New York’s La-

A few hours later, McConnell expressed frustration and blamed the standoff on Obama and the Democrats. “Republicans have bent over backwards. We stepped way, way out of our comfort zone,” he said, referring to GOP offers to accept higher tax rates on some taxpayers. “We wanted an agreement, but we had no takers. The phone never rang, and so here we are five days from the new year and we might finally start talking,” McConnell said. Still, he warned: “Republicans aren’t about to write a blank check for anything the Democrats put forward just because we find ourselves at the edge of the cliff.”

Gun group offers training for teachers Effort to arm educators comes in wake of Conn. school shooting

WASHINGTON (AP) — EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson, the Obama administration’s chief environmental watchdog, is stepping down after nearly four years marked by highprofile brawls over global warming pollution, the Keystone XL oil pipeline, new controls on coal-fired plants and several other hot-button issues that affect the nation’s economy and people’s health. Jackson constantly found herself caught between administration pledges to solve t h o r n y environm e n t a l problems and steady resistance from ReJackson publicans and industrial groups who complained that the agency’s rules destroyed jobs and made it harder for American companies to compete internationally. The GOP chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, Rep. Fred Upton of Michigan, said last year that Jackson would need her own parking spot at the Capitol because he planned to bring her in so frequently for questioning. Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney called for her firing, a stance that had little downside during the GOP primary. Jackson, 50, the agency’s first black administrator and a chemical engineer, did not point to any particular reason for her departure. Historically, Cabinet members looking to move on will leave at the beginning of a president’s second term. Despite the opposition, which former EPA chiefs have said is the worst they have seen against the agency, Jackson still managed to take significant steps that will improve air quality and begin to curb global warming.

WEST VALLEY CITY, UTAH — Jessica Fiveash sees nothing wrong with arming teachers. She’s one herself, and learned Thursday how to safely use her 9 mm Ruger with a laser sight. “If we have the ability to stop something, we should do it,” said the elementary school teacher, who along with nearly 200 other teachers in Utah took six hours of free gun training offered by the state’s leading gun lobby. It is among the latest efforts to arm or train teachers to confront assailants after a gunman killed his mother and then went on a rampage through Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., killing 20 children and six adults before killing himself. In Ohio, a firearms group said it was launching a test program in tactical firearms training for 24 teachers. In Arizona, the attorney general is proposing a change to state law that would allow an educator in each school to carry a gun. The moves to train teachers come after the National Rifle Association proposed placing an armed officer at each of the nation’s schools, though some schools already have police officers. Parents and educators have questioned how safe

CHRISTINE CALDWELL, LEFT, RECEIVES FIREARMS TRAINING with a 9 mm Glock from personal defense instructor Jim McCarthy during concealed weapons training for 200 Utah teachers Thursday in West Valley City, Utah. The Utah Shooting Sports Council offered six hours of training in handling concealed weapons in the latest effort to arm teachers to confront school assailants. the proposal would keep kids and whether it would be economically feasible. Some educators say it is dangerous to allow guns on campus. Among the potential dangers they point to are teachers being overpowered for their weapons or students getting them and accidentally or purposely shooting classmates. “It’s a terrible idea,” said Carol Lear, a chief lawyer for the Utah Office of Education. “It’s a horrible, terrible, no-good, rotten idea.” Kristen Rand, the legislative director for the Violence Policy Center, a gun control advocacy organization, said to believe that a “teacher would be successful in stopping someone who has made the decision

to engage in a shootout is just not rationale.” “No teacher is ever going to be as effective as a trained law enforcement officer,” Rand said. Even trained police officers don’t always hit their targets, and arming teachers could put innocent students at risk of crossfire, she said. Gun-rights advocates say teachers can act more quickly than law enforcement in the critical first few minutes to protect children from the kind of deadly shooting that took place in Connecticut. They emphasized the importance of reacting appropriately under pressure. “We’re not suggesting that teachers roam the halls” looking for an

BUSINESS AT A GLANCE

Notable Fears of sharp tax increases and government spending cuts set to take effect next week sent consumer confidence tumbling in December to its lowest level since August. The Conference Board said Thursday that its consumer confidence index fell for the second straight month in December to 65.1, down from 71.5 in November. The survey showed consumers’ outlook for the next six months deteriorated to its lowest level since 2011 — a signal to Lynn Franco, the board’s director of economic indicators, that consumers are worried about the tax hikes and spending cuts that take effect Jan. 1 if the White House and Congress can’t reach a budget deal.

Mississippi River drops, threatening barge traffic By Jim Salter Associated Press

ST. LOUIS — The Mississippi River level is dropping again and barge industry trade groups warned Thursday that river commerce could essentially come to a halt as early as next week in an area south of St. Louis. Mike Petersen of the Army Corps of Engineers said ice on the northern Mississippi River is reducing the flow more than expected at the middle part of the river that is already at a low-water point unseen in decades, the result of months of drought. The river level is now expected to get to 3 feet at the Thebes, Ill., gauge on Jan. 6, a juncture that could force new limitations. Worse still, the long-range forecast from the National Weather Service calls for the river to keep falling, reaching 2 feet on Jan. 23. The Coast Guard remains confident that the nation’s largest waterway will remain open. But officials with two trade groups — the American Waterways Operators and Waterways Council Inc. — said in a joint news release that even if the river is open, further limits on barges will bring commercial traffic to a halt. Thebes, about 150

miles south of St. Louis, is a treacherous spot for barge operators because of hazardous rock formations and a big bend in the river. The corps is in the process of removing the rocks but work isn’t expected to be finished until mid- to late-January at the earliest. The trade groups renewed their call for presidential action requiring the Corps of Engineers to increase the flow of water from an upper Missouri River dam in South Dakota. The corps cut the flow by two-thirds in November because of drought conditions in that region, reducing the amount of Missouri River water flowing into the Mississippi. Michael Toohey, president and CEO of Waterways Council Inc., said that without the additional flow “we will have run out of time on this national crisis.” The depth of the Mississippi is regulated by dams north of St. Louis, and the depth increases south of Cairo, Ill., where the Ohio River converges. But the roughly 180-mile stretch from St. Louis to Cairo is approaching record lows. Experts say that if barges stop moving, the potential impact on shipments of essentials such as corn, grain, coal and petroleum could reach into the billions of dollars.

Vietnam inching in positive direction

EDITORIALS

Cliff crisis The “fiscal cliff” isn’t the only economic challenge facing U.S. leaders.

I

n Tokyo on Wednesday, Shinzo Abe took office as prime minister of Japan, pledging to overcome deep-rooted economic and diplomatic crises facing that nation. In Egypt, as adoption of a new Islamist-supported constitution appeared to further destabilize the politically divided country under President Mohammed Morsi, the country’s economy was descending into turmoil. And President Obama cut short his holiday vacation in Hawaii to return to Washington, D.C., where the wrangling over the so-called “fiscal cliff” appears headed down to the Dec. 31 end-of-theyear wire. Welcome to today’s real world. Anyone remember Greece? Italy? Ireland? It would be expecting too much to expect statesmanship, leadership or genuine compromise out of our nation’s capital. What seems most likely is that the nation will go over the cliff, at least temporarily. The tax hikes and spending cuts that are part of the “cliff” package take effect over a two-year period, so there’s believed to be time to refine the plan after a new Congress is seated in January. Some have suggested that allowing the “cliff” tax hikes now may become more acceptable because it will put the new Congress in the position to discuss how to reduce taxes — something members possibly could agree on. However, even if the spending cuts and tax increases are resolved quickly, Congress hasn’t dodged all of its responsibility. Most government sources estimate that in February, another increase in the nation’s $16.4 trillion debt ceiling will be needed. Then on the following March 27, the current funding authority for the federal government expires, meaning the government would shut down — unless there’s another agreement. So, the dominoes are lined up for a series of political battles, and leaders and the rank-and-file in both parties seem to have dug in their heels. It will be exceptionally noteworthy to watch and see whether it continues to be politics as usual — postponing hard decisions for another election cycle — or finding a rational way to impose a sensible combination of spending cuts and tax increases to bring the country’s growing debt under some measure of control. Kansas sends only a handful of votes into this fray, but how they’re cast and how those senators and representatives justify their actions is of more than passing importance. Americans tend to be a bit smug when considering the problems faced by other leaders such as Morsi and Abe, but if the U.S. isn’t able to avoid its impending economic train wreck, the problems our country will face may make other nations’ challenges look like child’s play.

HANOI, VIETNAM — It has been 50 years since President John F. Kennedy ordered U.S. “advisers” to South Vietnam to help battle the communist North and 37 years since the end of that divisive war and the country’s unification under Communism. Today, Vietnam is fighting a war with itself. A local TV program reminds a visitor of Chinese propaganda “operas” circa 1970. Performers, some wearing military garb with a backdrop of missiles and an American B-52 bomber going down in flames, commemorate the 1972 Christmas bombing of Hanoi and Haiphong ordered by President Richard Nixon. Banners and posters in the streets reinforce the government’s history lesson. Younger people, who substantially outnumber the old guard, seem mostly indifferent to these messages, because few lived through the war. An American official tells me just 4 percent of the population belongs to the Communist Party. While there are large pockets of poverty between and even within major cities like Ho Chi Minh City, Da Nang and Hanoi, prosperity is making inroads. The 1-yearold Da Nang airport is more modern than some U.S. airports. Luxury hotels, clothing stores and restaurants abound. While many cater to foreign travelers, many

Those Americans who died here left behind the seeds of democracy, capitalism and a desire for prosperity and freedom. Whatever one’s view of that war, it can be said they did not die in vain.” locals wear stylish Western clothes and transport themselves on motorbikes and in cars. Twenty years ago, the primary mode of transportation was the bicycle. Vietnam eagerly wants to conclude a trade agreement with the United States known as TPP. Among other things, it would allow for more capital investment here and more Vietnamese goods to be sold in the United States. Deputy Foreign Minister Nguyen Phuong Nga tells me that since normalization of relations in 1995, the U.S. has become the “eighth-biggest foreign investor in Vietnam,” totaling $10 billion.

U.S. officials say human rights issues, including more religious freedom, are holding up American approval of the new trade deal. I asked Madame Nga about this and the recent sentencing of three bloggers to between four and 12 years in prison for criticizing the government. She deflects the question by noting press criticism of government corruption (true) and claims people have freedom of speech so long as they do not cause “harm,” a word open to interpretation in a one-party state. Vietnam recently opened two new areas to exploration for the bodies of American soldiers missing in action. Madame Nga says Vietnam has “actively worked with and supported the U.S. in finding the MIAs during the last 20 years,” but notes that on the Vietnamese side “about 3 million MIAs remain to be found.” She also says “there are more than 3 million Vietnamese known as victims of Agent Orange ... while thousands of hectares of land are contaminated with dioxin.” She adds her appreciation for money provided by Congress to help victims and clean land, but she says more is needed. As in many other one-party states, the Internet remains a powerful counterforce to managed information. The U.S. Embassy provides, and

the government mostly allows, an information center where students and others can log onto iPads and search for information that is often counter to the government line. The old guard remains suspicious about American objectives, seeing economic and political liberalization as a strategy to achieve among the Vietnamese people what America failed to in pursuing their “hearts and minds” in the war. Professor Carlyle A. Thayer of the University of New South Wales, an expert on Vietnam, said recently, “Vietnam is motivated to keep the U.S. engaged in Southeast Asia, and the South China Sea in particular, as a balance to China,” which claims some territorial rights in conflict with Vietnam and is a formidable economic and military power on its northern border. Vietnam is in transition, and it is unrealistic to expect too much progress too quickly. Considering where it was when the U.S. left in 1975, the country appears to be inching in a positive direction. Those Americans who died here left behind the seeds of democracy, capitalism and a desire for prosperity and freedom. Whatever one’s view of that war, it can be said they did not die in vain. — Cal Thomas is a columnist for Tribune Media Services.

PUBLIC FORUM

Disarming To the editor: U.S. Rep. Tim Huelskamp is dead-on when he says “Fundamentally the problem here is not guns, it’s people,” referring to efforts to enact new gun control measures following the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut. The guns will not disarm themselves. We, the people, must disarm them. The problem is that people like Huelskamp and National Rifle Association chief Wayne LaPierre, in their unbending allegiance to fear, don’t have the guts to do what’s right. Dave Loewenstein, Lawrence

Merit system To the editor: Gov. Brownback’s proposed changes to the selection of Kansas judges undermine current constitutional guarantees. In 1958, the Kansas Constitution provided a “merit system” for selecting justices of the Kansas Supreme Court. In 1972, this option was extended to district court judges. In 1977, the state Court of Appeals was formed by law, also using the merit system for selecting judges. Our founders realized the value of forming three, co-equal but independent branches of government — executive, legislative and judicial — to assure fair and reasonable laws without any

one branch of government dominating or over-exercising its constitutional powers. These “checks and balances” have served Kansas resident well. Why, then, is Gov. Brownback pushing legislators to change this very effective merit process to political appointment? As a citizen, you have a right to a fair and impartial hearing when you go to court. You expect the judge hearing your case to uphold the law and issue a ruling free of any outside influence, including that of the governor. The best argument for maintaining our merit system was given by U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy: “Judicial independence is not for judges to do as they choose, but to do as they must” (C-Span, August 2005). We appeal to you to talk with your legislators before the 2013 legislative session starts and urge them not to pass laws that would change our current judicial selection system and put the impartiality of our judges at risk. Melinda Henderson, president, League of Women Voters of Lawrence/Douglas County

Violent culture To the editor: Leonard Pitts, the columnist, dismisses the notion that violent video games played a role in the recent killings. Certainly, video games were not the cause of the tragedy in Connecticut.

Not even games such as “Call of Duty,” which the U.S. military uses as a recruiting (and desensitizing?) tool and the Norwegian mass murderer used as a training program. The constant violence on TV and in the movies was not the cause. Nor were our wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Nor was the rise of disrespect, demonizing and paranoia as national character traits. But put it all together, and we have a culture of violence, which surely affects how we all react to the stresses and disappointments of life. Banning assault weapons and restricting access to guns would limit damages to some extent. Re-funding our mental health system would prevent some of these tragedies. We need more. We need a society in which murder, both statesanctioned and not, is seen as inhuman and unacceptable, a society in which differences and frustrations are expected to be settled peacefully and with respect. Don’t allow our government to resort so easily to war. Don’t pay for movies that offer little more than graphic violence. Complain to networks and sponsors about TV shows that do the same. Don’t allow your children to grow up with violence and murder as daily entertainment. Teach them to deal with each other peacefully (this necessarily includes teaching by example). This must start with us. Let’s start today. Joe Douglas, Lawrence

From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Dec. 28, 1912: YEARS “With policeAGO men behind him, IN 1912 policemen in front of him, policemen beside him and policemen all around him, Irving Johnson was trapped in the Starkweather Shoe Store early this morning and placed under arrest on a charge of burglary. He was caught in the very act and was unable to put up any sort of a defense. It is quite probable that he will spend some of his time in the near future at Hutchinson.” “Kansas University boys in St. Louis are planning to welcome the basket ball squad when it goes to St. Louis this winter to play the St. Louis U. and Washington teams. There are a number of Jayhawkers in the city and they plan to show the Kansas boys a good time when they come.” “Samuel C. Hemphill, a Lawrence boy, has just recently secured a government patent for an invention which he has made. … The burner is patented under the name ‘Smokeless Oil Gas Burner’ and is said to be a device for generating and burning gas from kerosene or other oils.” — Compiled by Sarah St. John

Hutch PK, OL to walk on at KU

KANSAS MEN’S BASKETBALL CLINIC

Happy holidays

By Matt Tait mtait@ljworld.com

They don’t have the buzz of the rest of the incoming recruiting class, but at least one could make an impact that is just as important. Place kicker Michael Mesh and offensive lineman Colby Hamel, a pair of Hutchinson Community College football players, announced recently they would be walking-on to the Kansas Mesh University football team for the 2013 season. Mesh’s addition seems to be the more intriguing of the two, though Hamel Hamel’s 6-foot-3, 305-pound frame at least makes him an interesting prospect. During his two-year career at HCC, Mesh was a secondteam NJCAA All-American and was a two-time firstteam All-Jayhawk Conference selection. He is expected to compete with Nick Prolago and Ron Doherty for KU’s kicking duties right away and appears to be an upgrade on what Kansas had at the position throughout 2012. Mesh, a Hutch native, made 12 of 15 field-goal attempts this season and tied a school record with a 47-yarder during a playoff loss at Butler. His 16 career makes are the most in HCC history, and his 186 career points are the most scored by a kicker in Blue Dragons history. Mesh made a visit to KU on Dec. 7 and said he liked what he heard in his meeting with KU coach Charlie Weis. “Coach Weis said I had a good chance to get the fieldgoal job, but I have to earn it,” Mesh told Brad Hallier of The Hutchinson News. “I’m going to get up there and just show them what I have and what I can do. Kansas is where I’ve wanted to play. I want to help them get back to being dominant in the Big 12.” Hamel, a second-team All-Jayhawk Conference selection in 2012, can play center and guard and started every game but one this season. Because they are walkons, neither player will count against KU’s cap in the Class of 2013, which currently sits at 24 players, 10 of whom signed letters of intent on Dec. 19.

McLemore cherishes visit with brother By Gary Bedore gbedore@ljworld.com

A long line of kindergarten to sixth-grade boys and girls stretched from the southeast end of the Allen Fieldhouse floor all the way to the southwest end Thursday afternoon. The 450 youths in attendance at Kansas University’s 2012 Men’s Basketball Holiday Clinic made it clear that one of their favorite players was redshirt freshman Ben McLemore, who, along with his teammates, signed a steady stream of autographs for an hour. “A couple people were telling me the line was longer than coach (Bill) Self’s (line). I don’t believe that, but everybody kept telling me that,” McLemore said with a smile. The 6-foot-5 St. Louis native returned to Lawrence on Wednesday afternoon after a relaxing 31⁄2-day Christmas vacation. He acknowledges the best present he received was not one of the wrapped gifts sitting under his mom’s Christmas tree.

The gift he’ll cherish forever was the opportunity to visit big brother Keith Scott, who is locked up in maximum-security Potosi Correctional Center in Mineral Springs, Mo. Scott, who is eight years older than Ben, celebrated his birthday on Christmas Day. He has been in jail for five years. “It made my Christmas,” McLemore said of being granted an audience with his 28-year-old brother Sunday.

“It was great seeing him. I didn’t get a chance to talk a lot with him. The thing I’m grateful for is getting to go out there and see him. I think he was even more happy to see me than I was to see him. “He told me to keep my head up, just keep playing, keep doing what I’m doing, to have fun out there. That’s what I’ve been doing.” McLemore and his teammates had a blast Thursday,

taking part in drills with the youths at the clinic, which was held in the fieldhouse and the Jayhawks’ practice facility. “It’s great taking time out of our day to get to play with the kids and have fun,” McLemore said. In speaking with the campers, Self gushed about the ability of the high-flying McLemore, who leads KU in scoring (16.5 ppg) and is third in rebounding (5.7 rpg) entering Saturday’s 7 p.m. home game against American University. “He has a chance to have his jersey hung up there,” Self said, pointing to the south rafters of the fieldhouse. “He’s that talented. He’s an even better kid.” O

LHS GIRLS BASKETBALL

Senior Kelly puts ACL pain behind By Benton Smith basmith@ljworld.com

Emma Kelly isn’t the only one who remembers the moment exactly. Her Lawrence High girls basketball teammates and coaches do, too. Playing against Blue Valley West in the Firebird Winter Classic last season, Kelly brought the ball up the floor for the Lions in the second half as coach Nick Wood called out their set. They were running “big,” so Kelly passed the ball away and began her assignment.

The guard came off a screen on the wing and moved down to the post, where she needed to set a pick and create an opening for one of Lawrence’s forwards. Wood recalls Kelly, then a junior, planting her left leg on the block in preparation for a screen: “It just gave out,” he said. “I just cut on it weird, and I felt a pop,” Kelly said. “I thought I had just popped my kneecap out of place again, because it had happened to me so many times.” What she felt, though,

was a different level of pain — much worse than an unstable kneecap. No one had any idea Kelly had torn the anterior cruciate ligament in her left knee. Her teammate, Anna Wright, was on the court when it happened. Initially, she didn’t notice Kelly had fallen to the floor in pain. “I didn’t think she was really hurt that bad,” Wright said. “I thought she’d be able to come back the same game.” The diagnosis came a few days later, and the news hit

the Lions just as hard as it hit Kelly. Wood still regrets the freak injury and wonders what would have happened if he hadn’t called that play. LHS, 4-6 at the time, lost to BVW by three in overtime and dropped eight of its next 10 games to close the season. “We had really started to figure out who we were and started to play the kind of basketball we wanted to John Young/Journal-World Photo play,” Wood said of the Lions’ state in late January, LAWRENCE HIGH’S EMMA KELLY (12) DRIVES past Kennedy Kirkpatrick during Please see KELLY, page 3B the City Showdown on Dec. 14 at LHS.

USC quarterback Barkley to miss Sun Bowl EL PASO, TEXAS (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Matt Barkleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s career at Southern California is over, a shoulder injury bringing a disappointing end to his record-breaking, four-year run as the Trojansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; quarterback. Coach Lane Kiffin announced Thursday that the senior quarterback wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t play in the Sun Bowl against Georgia Tech because of an injured shoulder.

Instead, red-shirt freshman Max Wittek will make his second career start. Barkleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s throwing shoulder was injured during USCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second-to-last game against UCLA, and he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t play in the seasonfinale against Notre Dame. Wittek started the game, and the Trojans lost to the Fighting Irish to fall to 7-5 on the season. Barkley was a celebrated re-

cruit when he arrived at USC and won the starting job as a freshman in 2009. He went on to rewrite the Pac-12 record book during a USC-record 47 starts over four seasons, becoming the conference leader in touchdown passes, yards passing, completions and total offense. But so much more was expected from him and the Tro-

jans this season, when Barkley announced last January that he would return for his senior year. Coming off a 10-2 season, and out of a two-year stay in NCAA jail for rules violations, USC started this season ranked No. 1 and a consensus national title contender. Barkley was the Heisman Trophy favorite and an almost certain high firstround NFL Draft pick.

Petrino hiring misguided

Johnson dismissed as Brooklyn Netsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; coach

By Drew Sharp Detroit Free Press

DETROIT â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The wintry conditions Wednesday werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the only snow job perpetrated on the public. Western Kentucky offered itself as a poor little program gallantly struggling with the difficult transition of losing its head coach to another suitor. The Hilltoppers faced Central Michigan in the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl with an interim staff. Oh, woe was them. Give me a break. Western Kentucky was less about its 24-21 loss to the Chippewas at Ford Field, and more about what it will become from this point forward. It provided Bobby Petrino with a soft landing. And Petrinoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of the truly sleazy figures in sport. Getting another FBS head coaching opportunity just eight months following his disgraceful exit from Arkansas is somehow the manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s penance. A motorcycle accident exposed the layers of a deception that involved Petrino not only having an affair, but also hiring his mistress for a position in the Arkansas athletic department for which she wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t remotely qualified â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and then lying to his supervisors about it when confronted. The Hilltoppers have told everyone in the weeks since hiring Petrino that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a teachable lesson which could prove most valuable when going to recruitsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; homes and convincing Mom and Dad that only a person whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s experienced the depths can instruct young men on the discipline and commitment necessary to rise back up. Oh, really? The message sent is the exact opposite. It tells these athletes that as long as you possess a special talent, others will fall over each other making excuses for your irresponsible conduct. Western Kentucky athletic director Todd Stewart said recently that Petrino admitted that he made a mistake and was committed to redeeming his personal reputation as well as his professional career. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But this is a country of second chances,â&#x20AC;? Stewart said. Oh, really? Petrino quit on the Atlanta Falcons with three games left in the 2007 season to take the Arkansas head coaching job. And he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even possess the decency to tell his players to their faces. Instead, he put letters in their lockers telling them he was leaving. What warmth. The manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s word is not worth a plugged nickel. But he wins. And that trumps all else. There are probably more than a few Arkansas fans who were indignant over Petrinoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s blatant disregard for his family, faith and employers back in April after they canned him who probably now have second thoughts after John L. Smith replaced him and guided a top-10 team at seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s start into the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest underachiever this season. Petrino will win at Western Kentucky. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s already amassing some junior college players to come in next season when the Hilltoppers will probably be more successful than they were this season. And Petrino will be hailed as a miracle worker.

NEW YORK â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Coach of the month in November, out of a job by New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. The Brooklyn Nets have elevated expectations this season, and a .500 record wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t good enough. Coach Avery Johnson was fired Thursday, his team having lost 10 of 13 games after a strong start to its first season in Brooklyn. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the same fire now than we did when we were 11-4,â&#x20AC;? general manager Billy King said at a news conference in East Rutherford, N.J. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I tried to talk to Avery about it, and we just canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t figure it out. The same pattern kept on happening.â&#x20AC;? Assistant P.J. Carlesimo will coach the Nets on an interim basis, starting tonight with a home game against Charlotte. King said the Nets might reach out to other candidates, but for now the job is Carlesimoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. The GM wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t comment on a report that the team planned to get in touch with former Lakers coach Phil Jackson. King said the decision to dismiss Johnson was made by ownership after a phone discussion Thursday morning. Owner Mikhail Prokhorov had expressed faith in Johnson before the season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With the direction we were going we felt we had to make a change,â&#x20AC;? King said.

Lakersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Howard fined $35,000 NEW YORK â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Los Angeles Lakers center Dwight Howard was fined $35,000 by the NBA on Thursday for a flagrant foul against Denverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Kenneth Faried. Howard was ejected with 5:02 left in the third quarter in the Lakersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 126-114 loss to the Nuggets on Wednesday night. He was called for a flagrant foul 2 when he jammed his hand in Fariedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s face as the Denver forward drove the lane. Faried tumbled to the floor, but shook off the fall to stay in the game.

IN THIS PHOTO FROM NOV. 28, SMU HEAD COACH LARRY BROWN INSTRUCTS HIS TEAM against Utah in Salt Lake City. The well-traveled coach — who led Kansas University to the 1988 NCAA crown — has SMU off to a 9-4 start.

Larry Brown hands-on at latest stop — SMU DALLAS (AP) — Larry Brown was a young assistant on coach Dean Smith’s staff at North Carolina in the mid-1960s when he turned down his first head-coaching offer. At the time, Brown didn’t think he was ready. But Smith asked him where he’d like to coach one day. “I said, of course North Carolina, but I didn’t ever want to see him step down,” Brown recalled. “So I said Stanford, Northwestern, Princeton and Vanderbilt. ... Great academically and great conferences and great areas to live.” A record nine NBA jobs later and a quarter century after leading Kansas University to an NCAA title, the 72-year-old Brown found that kind of fit in his return to coaching this season at SMU. “We don’t have the tradition of Carolina, Duke, Kentucky, UCLA,” said Brown, whose Mustangs are off to a 9-4 start. “But I don’t think we’ll shortchange a kid in terms of getting an education and coaching them up and giving them a chance to be successful.” For anyone who thought the Hall of Fame coach went to SMU as a figurehead for a struggling program with a pending move to the ever-changing Big East Conference, it quickly becomes clear why he’s back in the game. “The only reason I took a job is because I love to coach and teach, and this school afforded me this opportunity,” he said. Brown had to be told during early games to stay in the coaching box. He holds out his hands

questioning a non-call by a referee, tries to prompt his team to run its play at the right pace and chides a player for hanging on the rim after a dunk. During practice, Brown gets right in the middle of his post players to demonstrate what he wants them to do. He swishes a shot to start a drill, then moves up and down the court, waving his hands to direct the action. “We all thought that he may come in, be like the GM figure. ... That’s so wrong,” SMU junior guard Nick Russell said. “He’s in practice, and he’s screaming, and he’s running and he’s dribbling and shooting hook shots. He’s doing it all. He’s involved and his presence is felt day in and day out.” Brown was hired in April to replace the fired Matt Doherty, who went 80-109 in six seasons. Brown left the NBA’s Charlotte Bobcats in December 2010. While home in the Philadelphia area with his wife and two high school-age kids, Brown spent many days at Villanova games and practices with coach Jay Wright. Brown also visited friends like Kansas coach Bill Self, Kentucky’s John Calipari and Maryland’s Mark Turgeon, but stayed away from NBA arenas. “He’s a piece of work,” Wright said. “I do miss him, but I know how happy he is down there.” Tim Jankovich was Illinois State’s head coach the past five seasons after working on Self’s staff. He had one of his best Redbirds teams coming back

tive coach to catch Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski as college basketball’s all-time winningest coach. Krzyzewski has 938 victories. “Zero,” Self said, asked the odds of him catching Coach K. “Whoever wrote that doesn’t know me very well. I don’t think I’ll want to coach near that long. But if you coach at a place like Kansas, you are going to win a lot of games, that’s for sure.” Asked if he likes being “in the conversation” for all-time winningest coach, Self said: “Nobody is mentioning me in the conversation. That’s one guy. Trust me, that’s not anyone’s topic of conversation, at least any meaningful conversation.”

embarrassing to say that I turned 40,” Self said with a smile. “I used to be a young coach. Now I’m one of the oldest coaches around.

Norm’s joke: KU assistant coach Norm Roberts came up with a lighthearted jab of Self on his birthday: “I think he looks pretty good for a 60-, 70-year-old guy. He has kept himself up. He’s got it put together pretty well.”

this season, but couldn’t pass up the opportunity to work with Brown, a coach he has always followed and studied. “What’s struck me is the amount of energy that he has,” said Jankovich, SMU’s associate head coach and Brown’s expected successor. “His energy is that of someone 20 years younger. ... He’s still passionate about the game.” The Mustangs’ last NCAA Tournament was in 1993. Their last NCAA victory was 1988, the same season Brown won the title at Kansas. In a tight concourse at Moody Coliseum, which is undergoing a massive $47 million renovation, there is a case with some of the Mustangs’ old trophies. The 1993 Southwest Conference championship trophy is near one recognizing a 1957 league title and another from 1935. There is a folded-up jersey once worn by 7-foot center Jon Koncak. After his first SMU practice, Brown told players he was going to “pray that we win a game.” He seriously asked them to do the same. “He was like, ‘Ah, this is terrible.’ ... It was our first time playing against one another,” said junior forward Shawn Williams, chuckling at the memory. “I expected a little rust, but I think with him being around NBA guys, it was a little different.” Self, who attended Brown’s SMU introduction along with Doherty, stays in touch with Brown and remembers a call he got last month after a difficult Jayhawks victory.

“He told me how good we’re doing, and I said, ‘Are you watching the same stuff I watched?’ Which goes totally against how he used to be,” Self said. “Because if he’s talking about his own team, they’re always awful.” Brown seems to like his team now — and the players waiting for next season. Three transfers get to practice while having to sit out this year, including players from Villanova and Illinois State. A top-notch junior college player and two Chicagoarea high school standouts have signed letters of intent for next season. Brown admittedly isn’t crazy about recruiting, and there have also been a lot of changes in the college game since he was at UCLA (1979-81) and Kansas (1983-88). “It’s become four different professions in the time I’ve been in it, it changes so much,” said Jankovich, in his 30th season coaching. “I sometimes try to see it through his eyes, and I’m like, ‘You must think you’re on Mars sometimes.’ ... But he’s very bright, and he’s a fast learner, and he’s very observant.” Many young players know little about Brown, the only coach to win NBA and NCAA titles. When Brown was recently watching some high school games in Beaumont, Texas, some seventh- and eighth-graders sitting nearby were trying to figure out what SMU was. “There’s a big hill to climb,” Brown said. “It’s a little different when you’re at North Carolina and UCLA and Kansas.”

Wesley update: KU junior forward Justin Wesley, who broke the little finger on his left hand on Dec. 13, might be ready to play in the Temple game on Jan. 6. “He has a splint on his finger.

More on McLemore’s draft stock: NBAdraft. net, which currently has McLemore being taken No. 3 overall in the 2013 NBA Draft, wrote Wednesday that it’s possible he could vault to No. 1. He’d be the first shooting guard taken No. 1 overall since Austin Carr in 1971. “If McLemore can continue his rate of improvement and learns how to further impose his will on the game, by the time draft day rolls around, anything is possible. In a draft with no clear cut No. 1 pick, a shooting guard such as McLemore has a legitimate chance to be the top overall pick, something we have not seen in 40 years,” Greg Sandler of nbadraft.net wrote. Draftexpress.com currently has McLemore being picked No. 10 overall and Withey No. 25. NBAdraft.net has Withey going No. 30 overall.

Rivals 100 released Rivals.com updated its list of the 100 best juniorcollege football prospects in the country Thursday, and KU, with seven, landed the most commitments of any program in the country. Pierce Community College defensive tackle Marquel Combs, ranked No. 1 by ESPN, was Rivals’ topranked Jayhawk at No. 10, followed closely by City College of San Francisco defensive end Chris Martin, who was 13th. Others on the list: Iowa Western offensive lineman Mike Smithburg (41), Pierce C.C. linebacker Marcus Jenkins-Moore (57), Arizona Western cornerback Cassius Sendish (59), Fort Scott C.C. cornerback Kevin Short (69) and Hinds C.C. defensive end Andrew Bolton (91).

when it lost Kelly for the year. Instead of peaking in February, the Lions had to figure out who they were all over again as a key piece of the puzzle had season-ending surgery. “It wasn’t necessarily a points-per-game-type of thing,” Wood said. “It was just her ability to handle the basketball for us and just her understanding of what we’re trying to do.” Kelly described the rest of her junior season as miserable. She had played basketball since elementary school, but found herself relegated to running the clock at practices. “I could see everybody else practicing,” Kelly said, “and I couldn’t be out there with them.” Her next six months consisted of rehab, beginning with bending exercises to regain full motion, then on to strength-building. Throughout the difficult process, the thought of returning for her senior season kept Kelly motivated. Said Wright: “She kept a positive attitude about everything.”

signing letters of intent Dec. 19. They, along with four other midyear transfers, will enroll in time for the spring semester. Bolton and several others from both the juco and prep ranks are expected to sign with Kansas on Feb. 6, the first day of the regular signing period.

McDougald an all-star Former KU safety Bradley McDougald, a senior from Dublin, Ohio, on Wednesday announced via Twitter that he had accepted an invitation to the annual East-West Shrine Game, a college football all-star showcase that features some of the top talent from around the country and works to benefit Shriners hospitals. This year’s game, the 88th edition, will kick off at 3 p.m., Jan. 19 at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla., and will be televised by NFL Network. Former Jayhawk Steven Johnson, now with the Denver Broncos, played in the 2012 Shrine Game.

The end of July signaled a return to basketball activities. Kelly never doubted herself, in part because she had seen Free State’s Jackie Garcia return from the same injury to play her senior year “It was scary getting right back into it,” Kelly said of jumping and making hard cuts when she returned. “But now I don’t think about it at all, really.” As LHS (1-3) practices during the winter break, Kelly feels 100 percent, even while wearing braces on both legs — one to support her rejuvenated left knee and one to support her right kneecap. She might never lead Lawrence in scoring, but Wood holds great respect for her because of her senior leadership and the depth she provides off the LHS bench. “She gave up her knee for our basketball program,” Wood said, “and never complained about it.” Kelly is too happy about playing to spend any time griping. She said, if anything, her injury has affected her by making her work harder. “Any play,” she said, “could be your last play, pretty much.”

Area athletes invited to Shrine Bowl J-W Staff Reports

MILITARY BOWL

San Jose wins 11th ————

Spartans spill Bowling Green WASHINGTON (AP) — The best season in San Jose State history? There’s a good case for it, yet it’s one nobody could make if the person with the awkward role of interim, onthe-way-out coach hadn’t finished the job. The Spartans are done for the year with an 11-2 record. Ten wins go to Mike MacIntyre, who rebuilt a program that was 1-12 just two years ago before leaving this month for a better payday at Colorado. Win No. 11 goes to defensive coordinator Kent Baer, who was put in charge and got to speak in a victorious locker room after Thursday’s 29-20 win over Bowling Green in the Military Bowl. “I didn’t cry, but I wanted to,” Baer said. “I stood tall, took a couple of deep breaths. It’s been a little emotional the last few days.” Baer wanted to stay at San Jose State, but he was passed over for the fulltime job in favor of San Diego’s Ron Caragher and plans to follow MacIntyre to Colorado. With all those distractions going on, the No. 24 Spartans could be forgiven for being a little rattled ahead of their first bowl game since 2006. Instead, San Jose State, in the national rankings for the first time since 1975, capped the year with a seven-game winning streak for its first 11-win season since 1940, recovering quickly from the shock of MacIntyre’s departure with the help of Baer. “We were kind of, ‘What’s going to happen next year?’” defensive end Travis Johnson said. “We started thinking too much, and we started trying to figure out what coaches are going to be here, what players are going to be here, and then coach Baer came in the next day and he basically told us that it

Cincinnati stuns Duke CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Brendon Kay wasn’t sure if he’d get another shot. When he did, he made the most of it. Duke running back Josh Snead fumbled at the Cincinnati five-yard line with 1:20 left, and Kay threw an 83-yard touchdown pass to tight end Travis Kelce with 44 seconds to go, lifting the Bearcats to an improbable 48-34 victory over the Blue Devils on Thursday night. Kay threw for 332 yards, and his four scoring passes were a Belk Bowl record. Duke appeared to have the game in hand and was driving for the goahead score — and its first bowl victory since 1961 — but the final 80 seconds proved disastrous. With the game tied at 34, Snead fumbled, and Bearcats defensive lineman John Williams recovered. Kay quickly took advantage of the change in momentum, connecting with Kelce down the middle for the go-ahead score. Kelce got behind the Duke defense on a seam route, caught the ball in stride and raced the final 60 yards to the end zone as Blue Devils fans looked on in stunned silence. Cincinnati (10-3) sealed it on the next series when Maalik Bomar came crashing into Duke quarterback Sean Renfree, forcing a deflection that Nick Temple returned 55 yards for a touchdown. Renfree threw for 358 yards — another Belk Bowl record — for the Blue Devils (6-7). Conner Vernon,

Roundup The Associated Press

Thunder 111, Mavericks 105, OT OKLAHOMA CITY — Kevin Durant scored 40 points, while Russell Westbrook added eight of his 16 points in overtime to help Oklahoma City beat Dallas on Thursday night for its 11th straight victory at home. Serge Ibaka added 19 points and matched his season high with 17 rebounds as Oklahoma City charged back from 10 points down in the final 7:17 of regulation and found a way to win after losing back-to-back games for the first time this season. Darren Collison scored a season-best 32 points for Dallas. Dirk Nowitzki scored nine points in his second game back after offseason knee surgery, showing some rust down the stretch. Westbrook turned the game around with six straight points after the Mavs had gone up 104-101 on Chris Kaman’s bucket inside midway through overtime. Westbrook had a layup, hit a jumper over Nowitzki and then made a leaping steal of an O.J. Mayo pass that led to a fast-break layup.

Dear Annie: I am a fortunate mother of four beautiful little girls, all under the age of 8. While I am not overweight, I could be in better shape. How do I handle strangers and distant acquaintances who approach me and ask me when my baby is due? I do have a little bit of a belly, but it is quite a stretch to assume that I am pregnant. I find this to be incredibly rude and then embarrassing when I have to say that I am not actually pregnant. I would never approach a stranger to inquire about her pregnancy unless she brought it up first. It is always women, never men, who do this. One would think they might be a bit more understanding in this department. — No, I Am Not Trying for a Boy Dear Not: We think people often open their mouths before their brains are in gear. No

one should ever assume a woman is pregnant based on her appearance. It is asking for trouble. But we will also say that if this happens to you so frequently that it is disturbing, you might want to reconsider your choice of clothing. You may be accentuating your tummy area more than you realize. Dear Annie: Twice in the past year I have been at events where you could win some grand prize, vacation trip or other gift. The entry forms required filling

in my name, address, phone and email. I found out the hard way that this isn’t what it’s cracked up to be. The first time, someone called to say I’d won a free trip. But the salesperson insisted that in order to claim my prize, I had to come to a specific address and tour townhomes. I went and discovered that I didn’t win anything at all. The second time (for which I supposedly won a free car), I didn’t answer their calls, and then I blocked their number, but the calls continued. I ended up phoning them and asked them to stop calling me, but they wouldn’t listen. Finally, I said it was harassment, and the salesman said he would take my name off his list. Tell people to be careful about those entry forms. It could be a scam. — Texas Dear Texas: These

UNIVERSAL CROSSWORD

aren’t scams. But they are misleading, and you need to read the fine print. They are similar to lotteries or sweepstakes. Could you win a free vacation or car? Yes. But the odds aren’t in your favor. Someone will win the grand prize, but most people will simply get a tour of townhomes, timeshares or other vacation property. We haven’t seen your entry forms, but we suspect they actually said to fill out the form and “win a free vacation” (no guarantee) or “you have won a free gift,” which could be anything, including the tour you took. We hope readers will take your warning to heart and pay attention to forms where they must put down personal ACROSS contact information.
