performed illegal abortions and falsified reports about some procedures to the state, which it denies. Stegall also initially represented Kline in professional disciplinary proceedings stemming from his investigations of abortion providers. Kline, a Republican, was attorney general in 2003-07, and, after he lost his bid for re-election, Johnson County district attorney in 2007-08. He filed the criminal case against Planned Parenthood’s clinic as district attorney, and it’s still pending, though legal disputes kept it from moving forward. A disciplinary hearing for Kline is scheduled for February on allegations that he made false statements and allowed subordinates to mislead other state officials during investigations of abortion providers. Kline strongly disputes the accusations, calling

The hands-on work of collecting trash, plowing streets and plugging broken waterlines is about to get a high-tech assist.

The total includes buying actual GPS units — 35 for trash trucks, 32 for utilities vehicles and 26 for street division trucks and equipment — and a year’s worth of monitoring service through Networkfleet Inc., based in San Diego. The units will allow supervisors to monitor the precise locations, speeds and, in some cases, even activities of GPS-equipped vehicles and equipment. The street division’s dump trucks, for example, will have special “diagnostic” units that will sense when a snowplow is scraping ice or snow from a road surface, and when a spreader is spraying salt and sand to improve traction. At some point, the city may make such information available to anyone with Internet access, said Chuck Soules, the city’s director of public works.

STATE GOVERNMENT

Brownback picks Kline’s former attorney to be general counsel for governor’s office Caleb Stegall is a Lawrence native and KU grad currently serving as Jefferson County attorney By John Hanna Associated Press Writer

TOPEKA — A northeast Kansas county prosecutor who’s previously represented missionaries detained in Haiti and former Attorney General Phill Kline will be Gov.-elect Sam Brownback’s top staff lawyer. Jefferson County Attorney Caleb Stegall will become the general counsel for the governor’s office when Brownback is sworn in Jan. 10. He referred questions Tuesday to Brownback’s transition team, after the governor-elect issued a statement saying he’s pleased that Stegall agreed to join the administration. “Caleb will bring strong legal experience to the governor’s office,“ Brownback said.

It’s the second time in less than a week that someone with a tie to Kline, a Republican who became a national figure for investigating abortion providers, has been named to an important job in state government. Last week, Secretary of State-elect Kris Kobach announced that he’d picked Kline’s former top deputy as assistant secretary of state. But Stegall, a Republican like Brownback, also received national attention earlier this year for representing four Baptist missionaries detained in Haiti after being charged with child trafficking for trying to take 33 children out of that nation. His clients included a youth pastor from Topeka. Most of the missionaries, including Stegall’s clients, were

They said they were told the children were orphans whom they’d planned to take them to the Dominican Republic to care for them at a hotel there. The Associated Press determined that the children still had parents, however. Stegall represented Kline in a legal dispute with a Planned Parenthood clinic in the Kansas City suburb of Overland Park, over Kline’s attempts to pursue criminal charges that the clinic

Berry Plastics, Plastikon Industries to be major business projects next year By Chad Lawhorn clawhorn@ljworld.com

Lawrence’s business environment in 2011 is expected to be twosided — and that’s a good thing, local economic development professionals say. Beth Johnson, vice president of economic development for the Lawrence Chamber of Commerce, said she’s looking forward to major projects on both the east and west sides of Lawrence. On the west side, Berry Plastics is expected to begin construction on a new 675,000-square-foot distribution center. On the east side, Plastikon Industries is expected to com-

DEATHS DONA MAXINE ROBERTS NORTON — Funeral service for Dona Maxine Roberts, Norton, 83, will be at 11 a.m. Thursday at Enfield Funeral Home, 215 W. Main, Norton. Mrs. Roberts, the mother of Gary Roberts of

Lawrence, died Sunday, Dec. 26, 2010, at Lawrence Memorial Hospital. Friends may call from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. today at the funeral home.

B ETTY B RUNE Services for Elizabeth “Betty” Josephine Brune, 86, Lawrence, will be at 11 a.m. Friday at Rumsey-Yost Funeral Home. Cremation will follow the service. Mrs. Brune died Monday, Dec. 27, 2010, at her home. She was born Jan. 9, 1924, in Hays, the daughter of Joseph Jesse Svoboda and Florence Clara Saindon Svoboda Jilka. She graduated from Kansas University. Mrs. Brune was an elementary school teacher for many years in the Lawrence area, teaching at Fairview, Cordley, Centennial and Broken Arrow schools. She enjoyed gardening, bird watching, reading and music. She married Danny Rothwell Brune on Nov. 6, 1943. He died in March of 2007. She was also preceded in death by her parents and three brothers, Joe Jr., Lloyd, and Floyd. Survivors include three sons, Daniel C. Brune, Tempe, Ariz., Albert W. Brune, Lawrence, and Stuart

F. Brune, Duvall, Wash.; one daughter, Marilyn J. Brune, Eudora; a brother, Charles Svoboda, Brune Kansas City, Mo.; a sister, Norma Hamrick, Lawrence; five grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren. Friends may call from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday at the funeral home, where the family will receive them from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday.

“You get up in the morning, see there’s 15 inches of snow, and you’re wondering how you’ll get to work,” Soules said. “You can open this and see which roads we’ve been on and which ones we haven’t been on.” The units will begin arriving in January, with installation expected to be complete in the spring, he said. Other benefits of the system, Soules said: ● Efficiency. Supervisors will be able to track trash trucks as they make their daily rounds, to see where routes could be adjusted to save time and fuel — and exactly which truck would be closest to anyone calling in a

“missed” collection. ● Accountability. Supervisors hearing reports of a city truck barreling through a residential area will be able to check the claim within moments, simply by looking at a truck’s data on a computer screen. Businesses with fleets large and small already use such technology to improve efficiency and service, Soules said, and it makes sense to extend such capabilities to appropriate municipal motor pools. “We’re dealing with public money,” Soules said. “We have to be accountable.” — Schools reporter Mark Fagan can be reached at 832-7188.

them politically motivated. Stegall also represented Eric Rucker, who served as Kline’s top deputy both in the attorney general and Johnson County district attorney’s off ice, when Rucker faced a disciplinary complaint. In August, a state panel informally admonished Rucker for not correcting information provided to the Kansas Supreme Court about Kline’s abortion investigations. But he’d initially been accused of more serious misconduct, and Stegall described the outcome as a vindication of Rucker.

Kobach said Rucker had been “completely exonerated” as he appointed him his top assistant. In 2008, Stegall also represented four Wyandotte County residents in an unsuccessful lawsuit seeking to block construction of a stateowned casino at Kansas Speedway, the NASCAR track in Kansas City, Kan. Stegall, 39, is a Lawrence native who now lives in Perry, about 10 miles to the northwest. He received his law degree from Kansas University in 1999 and was elected Jefferson County attorney in 2008. Republicans in the county will name a replacement for him once he joins Brownback’s administration.

Kan. rescinds moratorium on water rights for aquifer By Bill Draper Associated Press Writer

K A N S A S C I T Y , M O . — The Kansas Department of Agriculture’s water resources division has lifted a six-year moratorium on new permits to draw water from the Ozark aquifer after a U.S. Geological Survey study showed three times more water available in the aquifer than what was authorized for use. That’s in contrast to aquifer use in southwest Missouri, where the same 2009 study warned that some areas could go dry if there’s even slight growth over the next 50 years. “Most of the water use in the study area that we looked at, which comprises the tristate area of Missouri, Kansas and Oklahoma, over 90 percent is in Missouri,” said Walt Aucott, director of the Kansas Water Science Center in Lawrence, Kan., for the U.S. Geological Survey. “Kansas is down to less than 10 percent of the total water use, in the model.” Southwest Missouri is

more heavily populated and developed than southeast Kansas, Aucott said, so even a 1 percent increase in use in Missouri would take a toll on water supplies there. Southeast Kansas can greatly increase the amount of water it uses from the aquifer without having the same kind of impact because its use is comparatively low now. Dave Barfield, chief engineer with the water resources division in Kansas, rescinded the moratorium this week. It was implemented in 2004 because of concerns that the aquifer’s water supply was running out. The moratorium mainly affected municipalities where the aquifer is a prime source of city water. There is much more industrial and agricultural use of the water on the Missouri side, in addition to municipal use, he said. “It certainly is a relief to our users in southeast Kansas, particularly the city of Pittsburg,” Barfield said. “Pittsburg and others were concerned about where their water supply would be. Now

they know they can continue to grow from the Ozark aquifer, as opposed to going somewhere else for their water.” Kansas law controls use of water in the state, while there are no such controls in Missouri, Barfield said. “It’s sort of a western state law vs. an eastern state,” he said. “In western states, water is more limited, and so the state has mechanisms to control the use through the doctrine of prior appropriations. In Kansas, you have to get a water right. Missouri is an eastern state. They don’t control the use of water there. That’s why there are bigger problems on the Missouri side than the Kansas side.” The 2009 study was a product of the Kansas moratorium, Aucott said. “One of the things driving the need of this study was the moratorium put on by the state of Kansas for new well permits,” he said. “That created a lot of need to assess the resource closer than had been done before.”

for four years, so this will help get more excitement going at East Hills,” Johnson said. “But the best part is that jobs really fit our community.” The biggest question in the Lawrence business community may be whether consumers will join the fun in 2011. City Commissioner Aron Cromwell — who, if tradition holds, will take over as mayor in April — said he thinks the city’s retail scene will pick up steam in 2011. “I believe very strongly that we have been spared the worst of the economic downturn here in Lawrence,” Cromwell said, pointing to unemployment numbers that are better than the national average.

“I would anticipate that in 2011 residents will become less susceptible to the national media reports about the economy and will start looking at the Lawrence economy and spending a little bit more.” Figuring out how to boost retail spending is expected to get some attention at City Hall. The city’s Retail Task Force is scheduled to deliver its report to commissioners early in the year. The report likely will recommend ways the community can cut down on the number of residents who leave the city to shop. The report comes on the heels of one of the City Commission’s more controversial subjects of 2010: a decision to reject a plan for a Lowe’s home improvement store near Sixth

DODGE CITY (AP) — A Montezuma man who won a seat in the Kansas House in August has been chosen to fill an empty seat in the state Senate instead. Garrett Love was elected Monday in Ford County to replace state Sen. Tim Huelskamp in the 38th District in the Kansas Senate. Huelskamp will take Rep. Jerry Moran’s seat in the U.S. House. Moran will replace LEGISLATURE outgoing Sen. Sam Brownback when Brownback becomes governor in January. Love defeated former state Rep. Melvin Neufeld during a nominating convention hosted by the Ford County Republican Central Committee in Dodge City. Love also defeated Neufeld in August in the August primary for the GOP seat in the Kansas House. The Dodge City Daily Globe reports that a convention to fill Love’s vacant seat in the Kansas House is tentatively set for Jan. 7.

1 I ISLAMABAD

Coalition partner quits Cabinet Pakistan’s U.S.-allied ruling party suffered a fresh blow to its fragile hold on power Tuesday when a coalition partner said it will quit the cabinet, deepening the nation’s political turmoil and potentially distracting Islamabad from helping American forces target militants. New elections could lead to the emergence of a government not as friendly to U.S. interests and less vocal in opposing the Taliban. Still, even if the government changes — a prospect that is not at all certain — the country’s new leaders will be faced with the same seemingly intractable challenges as their predecessors: a feeble economy, chronic power shortages and rebuilding after this year’s horrendous flooding. And they will have to navigate the delicate partnership between their military, the nation’s most powerful institution, and the U.S., which provides billions in aid, to target al-Qaida and Taliban fighters who use Pakistani territory to plan attacks on Western troops in neighboring Afghanistan. The current government “is not only too weak to meet the U.S.’s short-term priorities even if it wanted to, it’s already too weak to meets the long-term priorities that would give Pakistan stability,” said Anthony Cordesman, an analyst for the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington. 2 I NEW MEXICO

Pardon of Billy the Kid called for More people say they favor a pardon for Billy the Kid than oppose the idea after Gov. Bill Richardson’s office set up a website and e-mail address to take comments on a possible posthumous pardon for one of New Mexico’s most famous Old West outlaws. Richardson’s office received 809 e-mails and letters in the survey that ended Sunday. Some 430 argued for a pardon and 379 opposed it. The website was created in mid-December after Albuquerque attorney Randi McGinn petitioned for a pardon, contending New Mexico Territorial Gov. Lew Wallace promised one in return for the Kid’s testimony in a murder case against three men. Richardson term ends Friday, leaving him only a few days to decide whether to pardon the Kid in the 1878 killing of Lincoln County Sheriff William Brady. “I might not pardon him. But then I might,” Richardson told The Associated Press last week. His successor, incoming Gov. Susana Martinez, has already said she won’t be wasting her time on a pardon.

Thanks to the Douglas County Citizens Committee on Alcoholism and several local restaurants, bars and residents, Tipsy Taxi will be back again. Tipsy Taxi is a free taxi service coordinated by DCCCA to provide safe rides home for Lawrence residents. Last year the program provided free cab rides to 420 people. The service, now in its 27th year, is funded through donations from the public. But funds for the Tipsy Taxi program are coming up short this year. Last year the cost for the Ground Transportation Inc. taxi service alone was close to $1,300. Jen Brinkerhoff, director of prevention at DCCCA, said that so far this year the center has received only about $850 in donations. Brigg’s Auto Group has provided the largest donation, with $500.

Judge clears way for Murkowski’s win A federal judge on Tuesday dismissed a lawsuit by Republican Joe Miller and lifted a stay on certification of Alaska’s U.S. Senate election, clearing the way for Sen. Lisa Murkowski to officially be declared the winner. The rulings by U.S. District Judge Ralph Beistline mean Alaska state officials will certify the November election results Thursday. That will allow Murkowski to be sworn in when the new term of Congress convenes next week, and make her the first U.S. Senate candidate since 1954 to win with a write-in campaign. “This is the best possible outcome for us,” her campaign manager, Kevin Sweeney, said Tuesday. Miller, a tea party favorite who defeated Murkowski in Alaska’s GOP primary only to be confronted with her more-energetic November write-in campaign, could still appeal. He has said he’s willing to go to the U.S. Supreme Court if necessary — and that one of his main goals is to ensure there’s an accurate, fair vote tally. But he also has said he is taking his legal steps one at a time.

Amarr lays off 19 employees By Mark Fagan mfagan@ljworld.com

Amarr Garage Doors laid off 19 manufacturing employees this week in Lawrence, citing a seasonal downturn in residential and commercial construction nationwide. The layoffs affected full-time workers on all three shifts at the manufacturing plant at the southeastern edge of Lawrence, at 3800 Greenway Circle in the East Hills Business Park. Most of the affected employees learned of the layoffs Tuesday, but some had been notified late Monday.

“Obviously, we’re tied to the construction market, and the construction sector,” said Delbert Phlipot, vice president for manufacturing at Amarr, which is based in Winston-Salem, N.C. “Construction usually slows in the winter months.” The company still has about 480 employees working at the 411,000-square-foot plant, which produces garage doors that are sold through more than 3,000 independent dealers and some major retailers, including Costco and — under private labels — Sears and Lowe’s Home Improvement Centers.

3 I WASHINGTON

The King County sheriff’s office says a 92-year-old Shoreline man chewed through restraints to free himself after two men robbed his house. Sgt. John Urquhart says that on Monday two men knocked on Lester Matteson’s door and asked to use his phone, claiming their car had broken down. But once they entered, the men grabbed the victim’s arms and held them while they used masking tape to tape him to a chair. Urquhart says the men ransacked the house, eventually taking off with more than $400 in cash and the victim’s 2000 Ford pickup truck. It took Matteson two hours to chew through the masking tape. Other than bruises, he was not injured. Matteson tells KOMO-TV he wasn’t frightened, but at his age, “you don’t wrestle two young men.” And he says he’s learned his lesson: “Watch out who you let in.” The robbers are still at large.

handful of seasonal layoffs at a smaller manufacturing center in Mocksville, N.C., Phlipot said. “We don’t anticipate any future reductions,” said Scott Carpenter, an Amarr spokesman. Affected workers have not been offered severance packages or outplacement services, Phlipot said, although there could be potential for rehiring some displaced workers when and if construction activity picks back up.

Cordley School used to have up to a dozen volunteers helping students with reading, writing and math, but now parents do clerical work to help make up for staff cuts. The reductions were one effect of Kansas’ budget problems. With less state aid, Lawrence schools have been forced to cut nearly $8 million in spending over the past two years. Things are not likely to get better. Kansas raised its sales tax this year to help make up for the loss of federal economic stimulus funds next year, but when the Legislature convenes and Gov.elect Sam Brownback takes office Jan. 10, they’ll be looking at a $500 million budget shortfall for the fiscal year that starts July 1. It’s a gap that could lead to more spending cuts across the state. At Cordley, parents like Alee Phillips aren’t sure how long they’ll be making copies, laminating posters or filling out paperwork. “I hope it’s not the new reality. Districts have to deal with the resources they are provided,” said Phillips, who has two children at the school. “I think it’s a scary time with education funding.” Public schools in Kansas had a few years of relative prosperity before the Great Recession began, thanks to a lawsuit that forced legislators to increase education aid. But with aid to public schools consuming more than half of the state’s tax dollars, it has been a natural target for cuts in tough times. School districts have responded by cutting more than 1,600 jobs in the past year, consolidating buildings, cutting programs and laying off teachers. Lawrence schools have about 11 ,000 students and 1 ,600 employees, with a monthly payroll of $4.5 million.

• Douglas County prosecutors on Tuesday filed an aggravated assault charge against a 46year-old Lawrence man who was accused of threatening his girlfriend with a knife during an argument at 10 p.m. Sunday in the 600 block of Schwarz Road. The girlfriend, 39, of Lawrence, also alleged he verbally threatened her, said Sgt. Matt Sarna, a Lawrence police spokesman. Police arrested John Paul Cron at 5 p.m. Monday in connection with the case, and prosecutors filed the charge against him Tuesday. A judge set his bond at $10,000, cash or surety. • A 24-year-old Lawrence man was taken to Lawrence Memorial Hospital early Sunday after a fight at The Ranch, 2515 W. Sixth St. Sarna said the man had a possible broken nose and cut to the head. Witnesses told police he was possibly involved in a fight with an unidentified white man who left the area before police arrived. The victim refused to give information to police, Sarna said. • A 37-year-old Lawrence woman alleged her brother threatened her and pulled a knife during a disturbance at 8:30 p.m. Monday in the 1900 block of East 19th Street. Police later arrested the 32-year-old

Lawrence man on an aggravated assault charge. He remained in the Douglas County Jail Tuesday, but prosecutors had not yet filed official charges. • Rueschhoff Security alerted Lawrence police to a possible break-in at midnight Sunday at the Lawrence Food Mart, 3300 W. Sixth St. A glass door, valued at $1,000, was damaged and $50 worth of cigarettes were taken, according to the police report. • Douglas County prosecutors have filed two misdemeanor charges of operating an open saloon against an owner of a Baldwin City bar. Douglas Scott Delaney, 51, of Baldwin City, an owner of The Salt Mine, 301 Ames St., posted $100 bond Tuesday after he turned himself in to be booked at the Douglas County Jail. Baldwin City Police Chief Greg Neis said Delaney was cited twice, once on June 13 and once on Aug. 21, because it’s alleged he consumed alcohol after hours at the bar. Delaney is next scheduled to appear in court on the charges Jan. 5.

INJURY ACCIDENT Two Franklin County residents were injured early Tuesday in a one-vehicle rollover accident on Kansas Highway 68 after the driver swerved to avoid a deer. According to the Franklin

County Sheriff’s office, 39-yearold Patricia Sleichter of Quenemo was headed west in a 1998 Pontiac Grand Am at 1:35 a.m. about 1 mile east of the Osage County line. Her passenger, 32-year-old Gerald Trinkle of Ottawa, told officers she swerved to miss a deer and the car rolled off the highway. Sleichter was flown via helicopter ambulance to Overland Park Regional Medical Center, and Trinkle was taken via a ground ambulance to the same hospital.

ACCIDENT UPDATES Lawrence police are awaiting blood-test results to see if alcohol contributed to a one-vehicle accident that injured a Topeka man Saturday in western Lawrence. Sgt. Matt Sarna, a Lawrence police spokesman, said Tuesday that officers were also still trying to determine how fast 24year-old Randal Hogue was driving before his gold 2004 Chrysler Sebring rolled over at the intersection of Clinton Parkway and Lake Pointe Drive. Police released more information about the accident that occurred 9:30 p.m. Saturday.

Sarna said evidence at the scene indicated Hogue was driving west on Clinton Parkway, and that skid marks on the pavement indicate he tried to slow down before entering the roundabout at Lake Pointe Drive. But the vehicle slid sideways into the landscaping curb, and the car rolled over and landed upside down in the middle section of the roundabout. Hogue, who was not wearing a seat belt, was ejected through the driver’s side window, Sarna said. Sarna said Hogue was listed in stable condition Tuesday at a Topeka-area hospital. He was flown via helicopter ambulance to Stormont-Vail Regional Health Center. • Lawrence police on Tuesday released an accident report from a Dec. 16 car and bicycle collision in the 1300 block of Kasold Drive. Police said the accident occurred when the bicyclist, 76year-old Paul Enos of Lawrence, made an unsafe lane change and failed to see a Toyota Prius, driven by 89-year-old George Berlin, in the inside lane. Berlin couldn’t stop in time, and his car struck Enos, who was taken to Lawrence Memorial Hospital for treatment.

WICHITA (AP) — Wichita police say a 40-year-old man found dead in his home might have been the victim of a fight over a game of dominoes. KWCH-TV reported that Christopher Rackham was found stabbed to death on Christmas Eve. Police said a 50-year-old man is accused of second-degree murder and was to be charged Tuesday. Rackham’s roommate says he was asleep when the stabbing occurred at the apartment. He says Rackham and the suspect — a frequent visitor — did not get along but were hanging out together on Christmas Eve.

Holiday break a chance to show family some love By Wes Crenshaw and Ben Markley

Wes: Christmas 2010 is now in the memory book. High school and junior high students have a few days left of vacation, college kids won’t head back to dorms or apartments until mid-January. So it’s tempting to cram in a lot of intense family time over the holidays, especially if your child’s been away since September or you’re a noncustodial parent of a younger teen, and this is “your” holiday. Before decking the halls with lots of activities, put yourself in your kid’s shoes. Reflect a moment on your own adolescence, and how different this time of year is when you were 17 than when you are, say, 40. For adults the holidays bring times of family celebration, travel and togetherness. For teens it’s a time for rest, relaxation, hanging out with

Double Take

friends and trying to forget the pain of finals, while suppressing the dread of what terror next semester’s Advanced Calc might hold. That’s even truer for kids already in the work force. It’s been a tough year for employment-seeking youths and those who have jobs are often thankful to have any break from the workaday world. As parents we’ve long adapted to that daily routine. Our kids are just getting the hang of it.

So as you are surveying your crashed-out teens this holiday season, lounging nonproductively on the couch, texting or improving their kill-to-death ratio on “Call of Duty,” try not to be disappointed at their lack of spirit. Make them a sandwich, give them a hug and realize that in doing so you may be giving the most precious holiday gifts of all: space and time. They don’t call it “Christmas Break” for nothing. Ben: The holidays are a great time for family and friends. I’ve spent every Christmas at home with my family, and I’ve spent the last three years bringing in the new year with a handful of close friends. I’m one of those people who got away with having a great family and great friends, and that’s something I try to appreciate over the holiday season. Family is something to be

cherished. I know that your posse’s idea of a good time may be more up your alley, but posses come and go. Some of you are fortunate enough to have lifelong friends, but all of us have lifelong families. Show them some love over break. It doesn’t matter how crummy your Christmas gifts to them were. Your time is a gift. Give it. — Dr. Wes Crenshaw is a boardcertified family psychologist and director of the Family Therapy Institute Midwest. Ben Markley is a senior at Free State High School.

Parents concerned about more budget cuts to schools CONTINUED FROM PAGE 3A

The district trimmed its spending by laying off paraprofessionals who worked with special education students, reducing the number of days teachers work and increasing the studentteacher ratio by one student, a move that may seem small but saved more than $1 million in one year. Many districts have reserve funds — something Republicans who opposed the sales tax increase noted. Brownback said in a recent interview that he hopes to give districts more flexibility to use that money to tide them over. But Lawrence Superintendent Rick Doll said that without clear direction from the state, districts are reluctant to tap reserves much more. Once the money set aside for emergencies is gone, it’s gone. “If the Legislature would say that funding wouldn’t be cut, then we would be much more likely to dip into our contingency because (right now) we don’t know that there is light at the end of the tunnel,” Doll said. Kansas law sets schools’ base state aid at $4,400 per student, with extra money for at-risk students and those with limited English skills. But the base aid districts actually receive has fallen to $4,012, about where it was six years ago. Schools would be getting even less were it not for the sales tax increase and federal

stimulus. To avoid more cuts in education funding, the state will have to make up for the loss of $192 million in stimulus dollars during the next fiscal year, something legislators don’t think is likely. Senate Majority Leader Jay Emler, a Lindsborg Republican, said districts “need to be realistic” in their expectations. “Just with all of the things that we are required by law to fund, there isn’t enough money to go around,” Emler said. Some parents and school districts have already lost patience with the state. Attorneys representing 63 districts and 32 students filed a lawsuit in November in Shawnee County District Court, demanding that the state restore funding for schools. The lawsuit claims the state is shirking its responsibility under the Kansas Constitution to provide an adequate education to all students. The same attorneys were behind a lawsuit that led to the 2005 and 2006 Kansas Supreme Court rulings that forced legislators to boost spending on public schools. Their latest case is a response to the state going back on

those increases. Meanwhile, in Lawrence, there are fewer pencils and less paper for students after the district cut spending on supplies. Teachers complain of the stress of trying to do more with fewer resources. “I worry about our novice teachers who are just starting,” said Valerie JohnsonPowell, president of the Lawrence Education Association and 29-year veteran in the district. “This stress is extremely hard on teachers’ health, including mine.“ Teachers also feel frustrated because the budget, not students, has become the focus of attention, she said. “I love working with my students,“ said Johnson-Powell, a speech and language pathologist. ”That gets lost in all the rhetoric about the budget. We teach because it is in our blood.” Parents say the most glaring change is the absence of support staff who once helped teachers reach students who were falling behind in math and reading. Phillips said she would love to return to Cordley’s classrooms to work directly with teachers and students. “I’m not doing that now,” she said. “I’m in the lounge making photocopies.”

Sgt. Matt Sarna, Lawrence police spokesman, said patrols will be normal on the holiday. Patrols with the Douglas County Sheriff ’s Office also will remain at the normal level. Officials stressed planning ahead, calling other means of transportation such as taxis or friends, promptly reporting drunken drivers and wearing seat belts. According to the Kansas Traffic Safety Resource Office website, statewide in 2007 there were 3,292 alcoholrelated crashes that resulted in 118 deaths and 1,944 injuries. During New Year’s last year, the Kansas Highway Patrol recorded 58 alcoholrelated crashes, 20 injury crashes and one fatal crash. Thanks to the Tipsy Taxi program, some of those accidents could be avoided. “It helps save lives by getting people off the street and giving them a free, safe ride home,” said Brandi Munoz, prevention specialist at DCCCA. — Kansas University intern Aleese Kopf can be reached at 832-6354.

Ski lift accident sends 8 to hospital By Glenn Adams Associated Press Writer

CARRABASSETT VALLEY, MAINE — A 35-year-old chair lift due to be replaced failed Tuesday in high winds at a Maine resort, sending skiers — some of them children — plummeting into ungroomed snow far below that fell with the Northeast’s recent blizzard and softened the landing. At least eight were injured. Five adults and three children were taken to hospitals after the double-chair lift at Sugarloaf derailed during a busy vacation week at the resort 120 miles north of Portland. Dozens of skiers remained on the crippled lift for more than an hour until the ski patrol could get them down. It’s unclear whether the accident was wind-related or mechanical, officials said. The ski resort was being buffeted by winds gusting up to 40 mph a day after the blizzard blew through. A witness said he saw someone working on the lift before the derailment.

THIS PHOTO PROVIDED BY AL NOYES SHOWS skiers and lift chairs on the slope after a lift derailed on the state’s tallest ski mountain Tuesday at the Sugarloaf resort in Carrabassett Valley, Maine. The resort said the lift, which recently passed an inspection, was due to be replaced — possibly as early as this coming summer — partly because of vulnerability to wind. Five chairs fell 25 to 30 feet onto a ski trail below, Sugarloaf spokesman Ethan Austin said. Rebecca London, one of the skiers who tumbled to the snow, told The Associated Press that her face hit a retaining bar but her goggles

spared her from serious injury. She credited new snow underneath the lift with a soft landing; the resort said it got 20 to 22 inches in Monday’s storm. “Thankfully, they didn’t groom it last night, so they left it like it was,” London said. “So the snow was all soft.” Most of the skiers who fell appeared to be stunned but OK, she said, and the ski patrol was on the scene with-

in minutes to treat the injured. London, 20, of Carrabassett Valley, said she wasn’t hurt badly enough to go to a hospital. Jay Marshall, who was on a lift that was parallel to the one that broke, said his lift was moving but the other was not. There was a “loud snapping noise” after the lift restarted, he said, then some screams. “The next thing I know, it was bouncing up and down like a yo-yo,” said Marshall, of Carrabassett Valley. He said it was too difficult to watch, so he looked away. “It was terrifying,” he said. Marshall said there was a worker atop the tower where the lift’s cable derailed but noted that could have been a coincidence. It’s not uncommon to see workers on the lift towers, he said. All told, there were about 150 skiers on the lift at the time, according to Sugarloaf, operated by Boyne Falls, Mich.-based Boyne Resorts. Sugarloaf workers used a pulley-like system to lower skiers to safety.

Governor After holiday spree, wants to consumer doubts reveal about economy linger Obama’s birth info

BUSINESS AT A GLANCE

Notable Domestic box-office revenues for 2010 won’t quite hit last year’s record-setting haul, but they’ll be awfully close. Total movie-ticket sales will reach $10.556 billion, the tracking agency Hollywood.com said Tuesday. That’s a slight decrease from the $10.6 billion total from 2009, but it’s also only the second time that the annual box office has crossed the $10 billion mark. ● Change is soon coming to the White House economic team, with President Barack Obama set to announce a new top adviser who will have broad influence over the administration’s efforts to jump-start the struggling economy. Obama is expected to announce a replacement for departing National Economic Council director Lawrence Summers early in the new year. The president’s choice is being closely watched for signs of where he wants to take his economic agenda in the second half of his term, and how he looks to bring down the almost double-digit unemployment rate.

Tuesday’s markets Dow Industrials +20.51, 11,575.54 Nasdaq —4.39, 2,662.88 S&P 500 +0.97, 1,258.51 30-Year Treasury +.13, 4.55% Corn (Chicago) +8 cents, $6.23 Soybeans (Chicago) +2.5 cents, $13.87 Wheat (Kansas City) +17 cents, $8.61 Oil (New York) +49 cents, $91.49

NEW YORK (AP) — Holiday spending surged this year, but Americans still have their doubts about the economy. With unemployment high and home prices falling in the nation’s largest cities, consumer confidence took an unexpected turn for the worse in December. The decline followed two months of rising optimism. Economists say the economic recovery is likely to be less fitful next year. “The modest drop in the confidence index is not worrisome,” said Omair Sharif, economist at RBS Economics Research. “What matters to us — and to the economy — is that consumers are getting out there and spending. We’re looking at the best holiday season for retailers in five years.” Busy malls in December are a big reason economists are less concerned about the latest consumer confidence figures. There’s also a slew of data that suggest next year will be brighter. Layoffs are slowing, businesses are investing money in computers and equipment, and the stock market has risen to its highest point in two years. Still, consumers are not quite convinced. The Conference Board, a private research group, said its Consumer Confidence Index fell to 52.5 in December, down from a revised 54.3 in the November survey. It takes a reading of 90 to indicate a healthy economy. The last time the index was that high was in December 2007, just as the recession began. Among the 5,000 people

surveyed this month, many expressed concerns about jobs. Fewer see them as “plentiful.” More described them as “hard to get.” The unemployment rate rose to 9.8 percent in November, and only 39,000 net jobs were created that month. Chris G. Christopher Jr., senior principal economist at IHS Global Insight, cautioned not to read too much into one report. A downward trend over several months would be more worrisome. Same goes for the holiday sales data, which showed shoppers spending at the fastest pace since 2006. Key areas such as jewelry, home furnishings and consumer electronics are still below pre-recession levels. Many retailers offered discounts on holiday merchandise starting in late October and free shipping to lure buyers back. Christopher will have a better sense of consumers’ mood when he sees how they spend after the holidays. “There was a lot of unleashing of pent-up demand,” Christopher said. “Things are getting better, but there are still a lot of negatives.” The biggest may be the decline in home prices in the largest U.S. cities. Every city in the Standard & Poor’s/CaseShiller 20-city home price index posted a decline from September to October. The last time that happened was in February 2009. Prices are expected to keep falling through the middle of next year, as fewer people purchase homes and millions of foreclosed homes come on to the market.

By Mark Niesse Associated Press Writer

H O N O L U L U — Democratic Gov. Neil Abercrombie wants to find a way to release more information about President Barack Obama’s Hawaii birth and dispel conspiracy theories that he was born elsewhere. Abercrombie was a friend of Obama’s parents and knew him as a child, and is deeply troubled by the effort to cast doubt on the president’s citizenship. The newly elected governor will ask the state attorney general’s office about what can be done to put an end to questions about Obama’s birth documentation from Aug. 4, 1961, spokeswoman Donalyn Dela Cruz said Tuesday. “He had a friendship with Mr. Obama’s parents, and so there is a personal issue at hand,” Dela Cruz said. “Is it going to be done immediately? No, the first thing on our list is the economy.” It’s unclear what Abercrombie could do because Hawaii’s privacy laws have long barred the release of a certified birth certificate to anyone who doesn’t have a tangible interest. Hawaii’s health director said last year and in 2008 that she had seen and verified Obama’s original vital records, and birth notices in two Honolulu newspapers were published within days of Obama’s birth at Kapiolani Maternity and Gynecological Hospital in Honolulu. So-called “birthers” claim Obama is ineligible to be president because they say there’s no proof he was born in the United States, with many of the skeptics questioning whether he was actually born in Kenya, his father’s home country.

Redistricting game Round and round goes the redistricting wheel. Where Douglas County will end up nobody knows.

N

ow that 2010 Census figures have confirmed that Kansas will keep its four seats in the U.S. Congress, political observers are starting to speculate on logical ways to redraw the state’s congressional districts to accommodate the continuing population shift from western Kansas to the northeast corner of the state. The only problem is that the redistricting process has almost nothing to do with logic and everything to do with politics. That became painfully obvious to Lawrence residents 10 years ago when the city was split down the middle between the 2nd and 3rd Congressional Districts. The only basis on which that division made sense was that it split one of the state’s most reliably Democratic counties in an effort to diminish the influence it would have on congressional elections in either district. Despite that decision, the 3rd District continued to elect Democrat Dennis Moore throughout the last decade until he announced his retirement this year. He will be replaced by Republican Kevin Yoder, and Kansas again will be represented in Congress by four Republicans. Republicans generally control the redistricting process in Kansas, but their influence will be even more dominant following November elections that increased their majority in the Kansas Legislature. Interestingly, however, some observers say the redistricting battle still will be contentious, mostly because Republicans will be fighting to keep pockets of Democratic voters out of certain districts. Because of population shifts, Lawrence and Douglas County again will be in play. Growth in Johnson and Douglas counties in the last decade means that some of the territory in the 3rd District will have to be carved off, probably into the 2nd District. Johnson and Wyandotte counties have about the right population to constitute the 3rd District by themselves. That could mean all of Douglas County goes into the 2nd. That makes a certain amount of sense politically for Republicans because it helps neutralize the only two Kansas counties that reliably vote Democratic: Douglas and Wyandotte. That would be logical, but, as we said, this process isn’t always logical. Rep. Lynn Jenkins may not want all of Douglas County in her 2nd District. U.S. representatives aren’t directly involved in the redistricting process, but they have their champions among Republican legislators. Douglas County could make the case that it has significant ties to Johnson County, but it would be hard to trump the ties Johnson County has to Wyandotte County, which are both included in the Kansas City metropolitan area. State Democratic leaders recognize that they will have little, if any, power over this redistricting process. Douglas County also will be hard-pressed to exert much influence over what district it is placed in or whether it remains whole or is split between two districts. We have been in this position before, and, fortunately, being a pingpong ball in the redistricting game hasn’t severely damaged Douglas County in the past. Local officials should keep their eye on the upcoming process to make sure it doesn’t go too far awry, but local residents also must recognize that where Lawrence ends up is largely out of our hands.

Key news Americans may have missed Now that 2010 is almost over, it’s time to look at some of the stories that should have made the front pages throughout the Americas, but didn’t. If most of us in the media focused on the issues that really matter — rather than on celebrity tragedies or the political scandals of the day — these are some of the stories that would have dominated the news this year: ● “Shanghai tops world education survey:” For the first time, a Chinese city ranked No. 1 in the world’s most recognized standardized test for 15-year-old students, the 65-country Pisa test run by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. In reading comprehension, South Korea ranked No. 2, the United States ranked 17th, Chile 44th, Uruguay 47th, Mexico 48th, Brazil 53rd, Argentina 58th and Peru 63rd. In math, Singapore ranked second, the United States ranked 31st, Uruguay 48th, Chile 49th, Mexico 51st and Argentina 55th. In a knowledge-based global economy, the Pisa test is considered a key measure of which countries are advancing the most in generating scientists and technologists who will produce increasingly sophisticated goods. While the Pisa test measured just one Chinese city, Shanghai’s performance is seen as proof that China is forming new generations of highly skilled people who may challenge the

West’s scientific supremacy. ● “South Korea hits new record of patents:” While the United States remains by far the world’s biggest producer of new inventions, Asian countries are gaining ground, and Latin American countries are falling behind. South Korea more than doubled its patents over the past decade to reach 8,800 last year, according to the U.S. Patents and Trademarks Office. Meanwhile, the number of U.S. patents has dropped slightly over the past 10 years, to 83,400 last year. By comparison, Brazil registered only 103 patents last year, Mexico 60, Argentina 45 and Chile 21 , according to U.S. figures.

● “Brazil becomes new headache for Washington:” Brazil, no longer content with its role as Latin America’s regional leader, sought global prominence in 2010 by defying U.S. and European foreign policies on almost every front, although always with a smooth rhetoric and a polite smile. Early this year, Brazil — which was criticized by Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International for supporting dictatorships around the world — embraced Iran’s regime after the United Nations International Atomic Energy Agency concluded that Iran was developing a nuclear program. More recently, Brazil announced its recognition of a Palestinian state within the 1967 borders, which did not include east Jerusalem, the Gaza Strip or the West Bank. Israel and the United States criticized the move. Brazilian President-elect Dilma Rousseff may focus more on domestic issues, and her foreign minister designate, Antonio Patriota — a recent Brazilian ambassador to Washington — is likely to be more moderate than his predecessor. But Brazil, much more than Venezuela, is likely become the biggest new challenge to U.S. and European diplomacy in the global arena. ● “Slow-motion coup in Venezuela”: It’s not making world headlines, because it’s happening on a piecemeal basis, but Venezuela’s narcissist-Lenin-

ist President Hugo Chavez — who lost the majority vote in the 2010 legislative elections — is turning his country into an allout dictatorship. Shortly before a newly elected Congress is to take office with a greater opposition presence, the Chavez-controlled National Assembly gave him extraordinary powers to rule by decree and passed laws prohibiting television stations from broadcasting news that “foment anxiety” and declared the Internet to be a “public service” which is to be controlled by the state, much like in Cuba, or China. ● “U.S. considers prosecuting Assange:” The Obama administration’s suggestion that it may prosecute WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange on espionage charges for publishing classified U.S. cables could amount — if carried out — to a devastating blow to press freedom around the world. Authoritarian governments would feel vindicated, and others would have their best excuse ever to clamp down on the Internet and basic press freedoms. I readily concede that this list of most important headlines is incomplete. Please feel free to write to me about others I’ve missed. In the meantime, I wish all of you a 2011 with plenty of health, passion, purpose and peace. — Andres Oppenheimer is a Latin America correspondent for the Miami Herald.

PUBLIC FORUM

Cart complaint

Big media are Obama lap dogs You don’t have to be a psychic who forecasts future events for supermarket tabloids to accurately predict what awaits the new congressional Republican class of 2011. The writing is already on the computer screens and in the TV teleprompters. A preview of coming attractions was trotted out during President Obama’s last scheduled news conference of 2010. After spending most of the year worrying about the economy and whether the Democrats could fix it, sycophantic reporters gave new meaning to the term “lapdog.” Following the lame-duck congressional session that rammed through legislation clearly at odds with the voters’ message in the November election, ABC White House correspondent Jake Tapper offered “congratulations” on the repeal of “don’t ask, don’t tell.” Tapper then sounded as if he was channeling gay-rights activists when he asked the president whether it is “intellectually consistent to say that gays and lesbians should be able to fight and die for this country, but they should not be able to marry the people they love.” That prompted an answer from the president that his views on the subject of same-sex “marriage” are “evolving.” Let me go out on a limb and predict they will “evolve” to acceptance, even advocacy, just in time for his reelection campaign. Mark Knoller of CBS Radio wanted the president to “explain the anger and even outrage many Democrats felt when the tax cut bill extended tax cuts not just for the middle class, but also for the wealthy.” They weren’t tax cuts, but an extension of lower tax rates. The question could have

Cal Thomas tmseditors@tribune.com

The message from the “November election was

about ending Obamism, not expanding it. You wouldn’t know that from the drooling big media …” come straight from the White House press office. CNN’s Dan Lothian asked about the president’s frequent use of the “car in the ditch” analogy, wondering who the president thinks will be behind the wheel when Republicans take control of the House, and “what do you think Republicans will be sipping and saying next year?” And so it went with a liberal question about the defeated “Dream Act,” and many other suck-up questions that ought to have embarrassed any selfrespecting journalist. On MSNBC, Tom Brokaw compared Obama’s year-end legislative successes to Lazarus rising from the dead. As most nationally known journalists are anything but “religious,” that analogy could stump Brokaw’s secular media colleagues. They might even have to look it up, which would not be a bad thing for them to do. The lapdog big media will predictably question everything the

new Republican House attempts to do, characterizing it as “insensitive,” pro-rich and even inhuman. They will be helped by unions, which will stage demonstrations against any program cuts or attempts to reduce the size and reach of government. Characters are already in the wings, waiting for their moment on stage. These will include the elderly, the poor, the homeless and other “victims” who make up much of the Democrat base. They will tell sob stories, and the media will dutifully cover them without fact-checking a single one, much less suggesting such people could better their lives by relying less on government and more on themselves. As Byron York correctly noted in The Washington Examiner, Democrats will again cry “Washington is broken” after Republicans take control of the House and improve their numbers in the Senate. To them, Washington “works” only when it is passing bills authored by Democrats that cost and tax more, while expanding the size and reach of government. Washington is “broken” when Republicans say “no” to more dependence on government and yes to liberty, opportunity and personal responsibility. The message from the November election was about ending Obamism, not expanding it. You wouldn’t know that from the drooling big media, which is already trying to re-establish the liberal narrative that everything Democrats do is good and everything Republicans do is evil. The big question is: What narrative do Republicans have to counter, even replace, the Democrats’ narrative? That I can’t predict, except to say we’ll soon know. — Cal Thomas is a columnist for Tribune Media Services.

To the editor: This problem may be just a grain of sand on the beach of life, given the state of this world, but I just returned from yet another store where in order to disengage a shopping cart from about 30 of them all jammed together, I had to tug violently at two of them with another customer, each of us at either end of the stuck-together baskets, as though we were engaged in a tug of war. We managed each to get one loose, but not without getting my finger jammed in the process. I am watching the knuckle swell as I type this letter and I fully expect to lose my fingernail. Almost daily at whatever type of store, I have found carts so tightly forced together that it is only after about five physically taxing tries that I manage to find one that frees itself from its captive companions (and inevitably that’s the cart that only makes left turns). This time, I took up the matter with a store manager who listened politely and then proceeded to do absolutely nothing, probably rolling his eyes to the ceiling after I quit bothering him. This was despite the “greeter” at that store who was standing there doing nothing, and who could have employed his time productively by separating the baskets for the customers. Perhaps store owners who provide shopping carts would consider giving a gift to their customers at this festive time of year by making life a bit easier in this respect. Jan Kozma, Lawrence

Tafanelli gets first general’s star TOPEKA (AP) — The Kansas National Guard’s next commander has been pinned with his first star to mark his promotion to brigadier general. The ceremony for Lee Tafanelli, of Ozawkie, was Tuesday at the Guard armory in Topeka. The promotion from colonel was in the works even before Gov.elect Sam Brownback chose him earlier this month to be the new Tafanelli adjutant general. Tafanelli will assume command when Brownback takes office Jan. 10, though the appointment is subject to state Senate confirmation. Tafanelli will replace Maj. Gen. Tod Bunting, who is retiring. Tafanelli’s new rank was approved last week by the U.S. Senate. He eventually expects to get a promotion to major general, which is the traditional rank for the state adjutant. Tafanelli is also a state representative, but he will give up his House seat.

KU’s Self shuffles starting lineup By Gary Bedore

Tom Keegan

gbedore@ljworld.com

tkeegan@ljworld.com

Selby boosts Reed Nothing in a game played at such a fast pace with five parts moving in scripted symmetry and five others trying to disrupt those movements is ever as simple as it seems, but on the surface, it appears nobody will benefit from the addition of freshman Josh Selby more than senior Tyrel Reed. Selby has the potential to quickly become the Kansas University basketball team’s best penetrator, and Reed is the best pure long-range shooter. Maybe it’s just a coincidence that Reed set career highs in points (18) and rebounds (seven) in his second game playing alongside Selby, against California, but it didn’t seem that way. They looked to be a pair of guards already showing strong chemistry. “I just know what Tyrel likes to do,” Selby said. “He likes to shoot from the corner. I drive and I know if I kick it out to him, he’ll knock it down.” Selby’s arrival has made Reed a better player. “I think it’s going to help everybody, including myself,” Reed said. “He can get in there and he’s a great passer as well. A lot like Sherron (Collins), he can penetrate and pitch to all the different guards. I think Tyshawn (Taylor) can do that as well, so we have a lot of different weapons.” Selby seemed to know where Reed was going to be when. That’s not by accident. “We work on a ton of different things every day, when a guy penetrates, where we need to be,” Reed said. “When a guy drives baseline, we’ve got to get to the corner. It’s just all about angles and staying in their vision. (Assistant) coach (Joe) Dooley is really good at working with us on that. It just comes down to our guards having vision and finding you in open spots.” Reed has developed into more than just a spot-up shooter. His relentless drives to the hoop in victories against Arizona and Cal — two of the four Pac-10 teams KU has beaten — were nowhere to be found in previous seasons. “That was a big part of my game in high school,” Reed said. “I wasn’t just shooting every time I caught it on the threepoint line. Coach Self wants me to shoot when I’m open and I want to be aggressive, make plays at the rim, drive and make plays for my teammates as well.” He’s even rebounding, taking advantage of his exceptional leaping ability, which tends to be overlooked because it’s not matched with similar lateral quickness. “I definitely need to hit my man and go get the ball,” Reed said of what it will take to continue his recent trend toward rebounding better. “I think that’s probably what I wasn’t doing. I was probably just boxing out my man, making sure he wouldn’t get the rebound, and I wouldn’t go and get the ball.” Reed played 35 minutes against Cal, but with Selby on board, Reed’s minutes could decline, to which he says big deal. “There are going to be less minutes and guys will get fresher legs,” Reed said. “I definitely think for shooters and scorers, that helps. You have to look at it like it’s a good thing and not like someone is taking away minutes.” Typically positive attitude from a guy who’s had an increasingly positive impact on the program since the day he signed up.

Self reported that sophomore Thomas Robinson will start his first game of the season — second of his career — at power forward. He’ll be in the same frontcourt as junior Markieff Morris, who started the first nine games before coming off the bench in the last two. Freshman Josh Selby will make his first start at combo

The Top 10 stories of 2010

Nick Krug/Journal-World Photo

MEMBERS OF THE KANSAS UNIVERSITY FOOTBALL TEAM RACE ONTO THE FIELD following a 52-45 comeback victory over Colorado on Nov. 6 at Memorial Stadium. The victory, which included a 28-point comeback in the fourth quarter (largest in school history), led the list of beat writer Matt Tait’s Top 10 stories from the 2010 KU football season.

Comeback can’t be topped: Epic 52-45 victory over Colorado No. 1 By Matt Tait mtait@ljworld.com

The 2010 college football season was as rough as we’ve seen at Kansas University for a few years. The Jayhawks, in new head coach Turner Gill’s first season, finished 3-9 overall and won just one game in Big 12 Conference play. The adjustment from the old regime to the new coaching staff was a rocky one, as switching to new offensive and defensive schemes was made even trickier by a new style of conducting business in the football facility. In the end, though, 2010 was seen as eventful if nothing else. With the players and coaching staff already moving ahead to 2011, here’s one final look back at the top stories of the 2010 KU football season, good and bad:

1. Record-setting comeback rocks Lawrence: Nov. 6 The Jayhawks scored 35 points in the final 11 minutes to beat Colorado, 52-45. The 35 fourth-quarter points set a school record for most points in a single quarter and the 28-point comeback (KU trailed, 45-17, in the fourth) also was a school record. Freshman running back James Sims tied a school record with four rushing touchdowns and junior quarterback Quinn Mecham eclipsed Todd Reesing’s school record of 13 conSims secutive completions by stringing together 17 of his own. KU’s victory was its lone win in the Big 12 this season and also

marked the final game for CU coach Dan Hawkins, who was fired a few days later.

2. North Dakota State stuns Kansas: Sept. 4 KU coach Turner Gill got his Kansas career off to a rocky start, with a 6-3 loss to FCS foe North Dakota State in the season opener. The Jayhawks struggled throughout the night, looking out of sync on offense and Gill unsure on defense. Third-year sophomore Kale Pick started at quarterback but was pulled after three quarters in favor of red-shirt freshman Jordan Webb. Webb fared no better

Three Chiefs selected to Pro Bowl J-W Staff and Wire Reports

Three members of the Kansas City Chiefs were selected to compete in the NFL’s Pro Bowl on Jan. 30 in Honolulu. Running back Jamaal Charles, wide receiver Dwayne Bowe and offensive guard Brian Waters were chosen as AFC reserves. Waters has been key in Charles having a massive year. Charles, in his third year out of Texas, has compiled 1,380 rushing yards and seven total touchdowns for the AFC West champion Chiefs, who

still have one regular season game remaining (Sunday vs. Oakland, noon). Bowe, in his fourth year out of LSU, has had his best season as a pro, catching 67 passes for 1,094 yards and 15 touchdowns. Waters, in his 11th season out of North Texas, will play in his fifth Pro Bowl. Charles and Bowe will be playing in their first. On a national level, Michael Vick’s sensational comeback season made a big impression throughout the NFL, not just in Philadelphia.

The Eagles’ quarterback, who sat out two seasons while serving a federal sentence for dogfighting, will start for the NFC. Vick was selected in a leaguewide vote by NFL players, coaches and fans. Vick made three Pro Bowls with Atlanta before he was suspended by the league and served jail time for running a dogfighting ring. This season, he has gone from a seldom-used backup to the NFC’s leading passer, the catalyst for Philadelphia’s dynamic offense. Atlanta, which leads the NFC

with a 12-3 record, had the most Pro Bowlers with seven, including quarterback Matt Ryan, receiver Roddy White and defensive end John Abraham. New England (13-2), the AFC leader, had six Pro Bowlers, led by QB Tom Brady, the league’s top passer who will make his sixth trip to the game — providing the Patriots don’t make the Super Bowl. The game will be played the Sunday before the title game at Cowboys Stadium. ● Rosters on page 7B

Marcus’ nickname? ‘Mook’ By Gary Bedore

Probable Starters

gbedore@ljworld.com

His name is Marcus Morris, but you can call him ‘Mook.’ “My grandmother gave me the name when I was young. My teammates call me ‘Mook.’ Coach (Bill) Self calls me ‘Mook’ all the time,” Morris, Kansas University’s junior small forward, said Tuesday. Why ‘Mook?’ “I don’t think it has a meaning, but it rhymes with book,” Morris said. “When I was younger I used to read books. My grandmother used to call me ‘Mook Book.’ Then we took the book part off and kept the mook.” Use of the nickname has definitely picked up this season. Self and KU players have often dropped that name in media interviews. So what do the players call Marcus’ brother, Markieff? ‘Kieff,’’’ Marcus said with a laugh. ●

Tyrel Reed on his favorite Christmas gift: “My parents got me — as kind of as a joke — a remote control helicopter. I’ve been playing with it every day. It’s pretty cool actually. I like it a lot.” ●

Lonely: Marcus Morris on how it felt leaving the Haas Pavilion floor after getting ejected with 171⁄2 minutes left in last Wednesday’s game against Cal: “It wasn’t real at first. I was like, ‘Dang did I really just do that?’’’ Morris said. “I went to the back (of locker room) and stared at the clock for the entire game. I was hoping they didn’t lose because if we lost, I know all the blame would have went to me.” He wasn’t surprised KU beat Cal, 78-63. “We’ve got guys that can play. I’m not the only player on this team. When I go down or get injured or kicked out of the game, I know my team can win,” Morris said. ●

About tonight’s foe: University of Texas at Arlington has an enrollment of 33,000. The school competes in the Southland Conference. ... UT Arlington is 5-5 after its 76-53 loss Wednesday at Texas Tech. ... UT Arlington is 4-0 at home and 1-5 on the road. ... The Mavericks average 72.9 ppg with a +7.9 scoring margin. UT Arlington forces 17.9 turnovers and is outrebounding foes by a +2.2 margin. ... Junior forward LaMarcus Reed III averages a team-leading 15.5 ppg. He’s made 20 threes and averages 4.8 rpg. ... Freshman guard Darius Richardson averages 9.4 ppg. He’s made 21 threes.

“It’s a lot like watching us, to be honest with you,” KU’s Self said. “They do a lot of similar things we do offensively.”

nical foul call on Thomas Robinson in the second half of the Cal game, but did not send a complaint to any league office. “No, no. I let it go. The last time I was so perturbed on a call was six years ago. I have been perturbed since then, but on a call I thought was a call that was definitely the difference in the outcome of the game, which is a pretty stupid thing for a coach to say because there’s many calls throughout the course of a game. This one happened to be a call at the end of the game. I made a big deal out of that in my own mind. I sliced tape together. I sent it off. I spent the next two, three days worrying about something I couldn’t get back, as opposed to just focusing on the next game. So I don’t do that. If somebody calls me and asks me what I think, I tell ‘em. Officials really do a good job. Just because I don’t agree doesn’t make them wrong.”

KANSAS FORWARD MARCUS MORRIS, MIDDLE, TURNS for a shot over Arizona forward Jamelle Horne (42) on Nov. 27 in the Las Vegas Invitational. Morris has a nickname — ‘Mook’ — that’s stuck with him from his days growing up in Philadelphia.

Self comments on Little: Self on senior Mario Little, whose municipal court date has been delayed from Jan. 5 to May 19 (Little faces four counts of battery, two counts of criminal damage to property and one count of criminal trespassing, all misdemeanors): “He’s with us and part of our team. He’ll practice and sit on the bench in street clothes (during games). He will not participate. I don’t know if or when that (return) will happen. I’m still trying to get some information (on arrest on Dec. 15). Over Christmas vacation is not the easiest time to get that sometimes. I will say this: I like him. He needs three hours to graduate. I think it’s my responsibility to make sure that occurs. When I know some● thing — where there’s a game Fear the (Self) beard? OK, plan — I’ll make sure to share that with you, but right now I maybe not: KU coach Self was sporting a fairly heavy beard don’t have one.” ● on Tuesday.

Self shuffles starting lineup CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1B

we’re going to play two bigs tomorrow and we’ll switch some things up on the perimeter as well.” Tyshawn Taylor will come off the bench for the first time all season. He finally boarded a 5 p.m. flight Tuesday at Newark, N.J.’s snowbound airport, after missing four straight practices dating to Sunday night. Weary after arriving at the airport as early as 8 a.m., Tuesday, Taylor did indeed finally work out with the Jayhawks on Tuesday night in KU’s practice facility. “It’s not his fault,” Self said of Taylor’s delayed return to Lawrence from holiday break, “but when a guy misses four practices in a row ... you wouldn’t even do that (start) if a guy turns his ankle. At least I wouldn’t do that. “It’s still his starting spot, but he definitely won’t start (tonight). He’ll be the first to tell you he shouldn’t. How can you have any rhythm when he hasn’t had a ball in his hand the last seven days?” Selby, who scored 21 and 18 points versus USC and Cal, will remain at combo guard, with Johnson taking the heat off him — as Taylor did — at the lead guard slot. “I don’t worry about who starts. All that matters is who finishes,” Selby said Tuesday. Noted Self: “I think Josh is doing great. I think he’s picking stuff up all the time. He’s really trying hard. He’s done a

really nice job and a good job fitting in.” Self remains bothered by the flagrant foul Marcus Morris picked up after elbowing Cal’s Harper Kamp in the face with 17:23 remaining. “That was a very, very immature play that he made on his part,” Self said. “He certainly has to be more mature than that because he’s too valuable. “He shouldn’t have done that, but I think in some ways, things like that have a way of getting a guy’s attention to the point where they get a lot better fast, where they understand the value of things coaches have been telling them all along.” Morris said he apologized to both Cal’s Kamp and to his own teammates. “Of course I went back and looked at it (tape). It was all over ESPN for a while,” Morris said. “It was a mental mistake by me. My team needs me. My coach told me I can’t do things like that. I already knew by me being a captain it was a bad play.” Self doesn’t designate official team captains. But with Morris being a first-team preseason all-Big 12 pick, it’s obvious who the Jayhawks look to for leadership. “The guys look to us for confirmation. We all know as a team who the captains are,” Morris said. “Even for the young guys who look up to me and my teammates — for them to think I’d do something as stupid as I did to get

myself thrown out of the game — it’s kind of embarrassing to me and embarrassing to the fans, too.” Will other teams bait him? “I expect everybody to do that,” Morris said. “I mean, you try to get into the two best players’ heads. ‘Kieff ... they do the same thing with him. You just can’t retaliate the way I did.” Morris said he should have taken a different approach. “I really never let my temper get ahead of me, but I felt it was dirty play (by Kamp). I should have went to the refs and told them that something was going on. I retaliated the wrong way,” he said. Self realizes other teams may continue to try to get into the twins’ heads. “I guess there’s always a possibility. You watch tape and if a guy gets that easily provoked,” Self said. “There were some things if you really watched the game from the perspective we did — and tape is the true indicator — that was a pretty chippy game and it started right from the beginning. But Marcus has to be smarter than that.” Self praised Robinson for not losing his cool during a second half scramble for the ball in which he actually was knocked in the face by Cal’s Jorge Gutierrez. “Thomas handled himself beautifully,” Self said. “It’s about as good as a guy can handle himself when guys are on top of him squirming around.”

bounced back with an impressive effort to knock off No. 15 Georgia Tech. James Sims ran for 101 yards and a touchdown in his college debut and junior wideout Daymond Patterson caught seven balls for 85 yards and a TD, including a highlight-reel, 32-yard run-andcatch that ended with Patterson diving head-first into the end zone. After the game, players and fans joined together on the Memorial Stadium surface to celebrate Gill’s first victory with the program and the school’s first home win against a Top-15 team since 1984.

4. Stuckey, Meier, Briscoe selected in NFL Draft: April 24 For just the second time this decade, the Jayhawks had more than two players selected in the NFL Draft, as safety Darrell Stuckey went in the fourth round to San Diego; wide receiver Kerry Meier went in the fifth to Atlanta and wide receiver Dezmon Briscoe was scooped up in the sixth by Cincinnati. All three players signed with their respective squads, though only Stuckey and Meier were able to stick. Briscoe was released by Cincy but later picked up by Tampa Bay, where he joined former Jayhawk Aqib Talib. Former KU players Jake Sharp, Maxwell Onyegbule and Justin Thornton also made it to NFL camps, with Thornton making it to the final cut with the Pittsburgh Steelers. 5. Colorado prep standout picks Kansas: Dec. 20 Still smarting from missing out on junior-college quarterback Zack Stoudt (who chose Ole Miss over KU on Dec. 13) the Jayhawks received a huge lift when highly-touted prep QB Brock Berglund, a senior at Valor Christian High in Highlands Ranch, Colo., decommits from Colorado and picks Kansas. Berglund, a 6-foot-4, 205-pound dualthreat QB, is the 13th-ranked quarterback in the Class of 2011 and may be on campus in January, which would give him a jumpstart on his quest

Come closer, just listen: What do you hear? It’s loud and it seems we’ve heard it all year. Is it roars for the Saints echoing still, After Katrina before the big spill? Or shrieks for Nadal? The World Cup for Spain? There’s nothing quite like a strong summer reign. Or gasps for Butler and a halfcourt heave Ending a run we could hardly believe? All that was music but not quite the sounds Stuck in our heads as the year made its rounds. Fight songs? The anthem before the first pitch? Olympic theme music serving up kitsch? That classic of peanuts and Cracker Jack? Not on this playlist. We’re swerving off track. What, then? Beethoven’s "Fifth"? Clapton’s "Layla"? No, just the buzz of a vuvuzela. Reputations this year rolled through the mud. Exhibit A, Tiger: one chastened stud. Woods chased women like a barracuda, Then rued he strayed from the path of Buddha. He split with his swing coach, grew a goatee — Not that it mattered from fairway to tee. So little went right, his drives and his putts. Divorce lawyers, though, took nice, healthy cuts. Roethlisberger, Favre: Two more names defiled, More scandal yet of libidos run wild. And no year, for sure, is truly complete Without someone asking, "Is Lance a cheat?"

The list goes on of those taken to task. Like coach Rick Pitino? Don’t even ask. And what of Pete Carroll at USC? He saw the storm clouds, decided to flee, While Reggie Bush struck his own Heisman pose, Returning the trophy like store-bought clothes. And sometimes before you’re an undergrad The money trail’s leading to dear old Dad. Says the NCAA: merely a flaw. Yes, life’s good at Auburn with Newton’s Law. And what could be dumber, you might presume, Than brandishing guns in a locker room? The rules are quite clear beyond any doubt. It takes no Wizard to figure that out. But men are from Mars, women from Venus — Like common sense and Gilbert Arenas.

Then came the night of LeBron’s "Decision," A prime-time special met with derision. With Jim Gray looking like some game-show host, King James decreed what he really wants most. He longs for the Heat, provoking a howl From wounded Cleveland crying flagrant foul. Baseball this season was not without charms — No-hitters each week in this call to arms. And Galarraga nearly joined the club. Perfect! Except for an umpire’s flub. Safe or out? That was the call for Jim Joyce. Sometimes we simply don’t make the right choice. The playoffs were nothing but downright weird When the Giants taught us to Fear the Beard. These castoffs and misfits bought on the cheap Somehow rose to the top of baseball’s heap. On deck are Clemens and Bonds, don’t forget, The law’s long arm hardly done with them yet. Football met science but this wasn’t dull — Assessing the force of hits to the skull. This much was clear from the studies discussed: When helmets collide heads may be concussed. The damage, of course, goes beyond the brain, Like a busted shoulder that’s racked with pain. Favre honored his streak, but to no avail. His Viking ship was unable to sail. And before Vancouver could light the flame The order of business was grief and blame.

INSIGHT BOWL

Hawkeyes edge Mizzou TEMPE , A RIZ . (AP) — Micah Hyde ran around, even behind the Missouri Tigers. Fill-in freshman Marcus Coker ran right over them. Coker ran for 219 yards and two scores, and Hyde scored on a meandering, 72-yard interception return in the fourth quarter to help Iowa beat Missouri, 27-24, in the Insight Bowl on Tuesday night. Undermanned due to injuries and suspensions, Iowa (8-5) turned to Coker, who had 403 yards and touchdown as Adam Robinson's backup during the regular season. The bruising freshman had no trouble taking over with Robinson gone to a suspension, setting school records for yards and carries 33 in front of an Insight Bowlrecord 53,453 fans. Missouri (10-3) had its way with Iowa's once-stout

DE BALLARD CLOSES CAREER WITH WIN Tuesday’s Insight Bowl marked the final game in the college career of former Free State High standout Christian Ballard. Ballard, a 6-foot-5, 297pound senior defensive tackle for the Iowa Hawkeyes capped his career with a 27-24 victory against No. 14 Missouri. Ballard finished the game with three tackles and a sack. He finished 2010 with 43 defense most of the night, rolling up 512 yards, including a school bowl record 434 passing by Blaine Gabbert. Gabbert finished 41-for-57 to set two more school records, but inexplicably threw the ball right to Hyde, who dodged several tackles while running backward and sideways before racing up the

tackles, including three sacks, five tackles for loss, two pass break-ups and a forced fumble. For his career, Ballard recorded 152 tackles, 12.5 sacks and 21.5 tackles for loss as a three-year starter. Next up for the former Firebird is preparation for next April’s NFL Draft, where some draft analysts have Ballard projected as high a second-round pick. sideline for the secondlongest interception return in Insight Bowl history. Missouri had one f inal chance, but a fourth-down reception by T.J. Moe with 2:15 left was overruled on review and Coker helped grind out the clock. Moe finished with an Insight Bowl record 15 receptions for 152 yards.

CHAMPS SPORTS BOWL

N.C. State topples West Va. ORLANDO, FLA. (AP) — If this was Russell Wilson’s football finale, he sure made the most of it. Wilson threw for 275 yards and two touchdowns, leading North Carolina State past No. 22 West Virginia, 23-7, in the Champs Sports Bowl on Tuesday night. The Atlantic Coast Conference’s leading passer this season now has to decide whether to make an early move toward a professional baseball career or come back to lead the Wolpack again next year. “I’ve been blessed to have the opportunity to play football and baseball my whole life,” Wilson said. “If it happens in the future that I can still do that, or if it doesn’t, whatever, but I know that playing for Coach (Tom) O’Brien and playing for N.C. State — whether I do come back or not — has been a great opportunity and a great blessing. “I’m very passionate about N.C. State and N.C. State football, and I will always be.” Wilson also had 41 yards rushing, Josh Czajkowski made three field goals and the Wolfpack (9-4) won nine games for the first time since 2002. Geno Smith had 196 yards passing and an injured Noel Devine ran for 50 yards for the Mountaineers (9-4), whose five second-half turnovers ended any hopes of a cheerful send off for some of Bill Stewart’s staff. Stewart is being slowly moved out as coach, with Dana Holgorsen, Oklahoma State’s offensive coordinator, taking over at the same position next year at West Virginia before moving into Stewart’s job in 2012. The game was current offensive coordinator Jeff Mullen’s last game. “I don’t mean to be a wise (guy), but this is not the time to talk about next year,” Stewart said. “I just finished a bowl game. I’ll see them Jan. 9 and we’ll start preparation then for 2011.” Instead, this one was a coronation for someone else. Wilson, who earned the bowl’s MVP honor, may very

He spent much of the summer playing second base in the Colorado Rockies’ minorleague system, and his career in baseball has always seemed more promising. The Wolfpack can only hope he returns. Wilson was 28 for 45 passing, had no interceptions and shredded a West Virginia defense that had been solid. It was the most points that the Mountaineers — who had never given up more than 21 points — allowed all season. “We’ve got to try to persuade him to come back,” running back James Washington said. Wilson’s 16-yard touchdown pass to Mustafa Greene put the Wolfpack up 7-0 in the first quarter, and they never had trouble moving the ball after that. Scoring, at least early, was another matter. N.C. State’s offense stalled several times after crossing into Mountaineers’ territory. The Wolfpack also faked a potential 43-yard field goal in the second quarter that was a disaster: Holder Corey Tedder threw an over-the-shoulder pass from his knees that skipped off the new field turf,

kicker Czajkowski was hit amid the scramble and West Virginia took possession. West Virginia capitalized when Smith threw a 32-yard touchdown pass to Stedman Bailey, who reached over defensive back David Amerson to catch the ball and tie the game. But the Mountaineers ended any chance of a comeback with late turnovers. Smith fumbled a handoff, Devine lost the ball after a hit by Amerson and then Smith was intercepted by Brandon Bishop. As if that wasn’t enough, Jock Sanders fumbled a punt on the West Virginia 7-yard line that led to a 3-yard TD catch by Jarvis Williams to seal the victory. Smith also had another fumble in the final minutes. “We said all year long that our motto was we can only stop ourselves and beat ourselves and that’s pretty much what happened,” Devine said. The win put Wilson in elite company with only one other Wolfpack quarterback: Only the 2002 team that went 11-3, led by Philip Rivers, had won at least nine games.

Pinstripe Bowl hit by snowstorm N EW Y O R K ( AP ) — Yankee Stadium isn’t accustomed to digging out for anything. The ballpark in the Bronx is usually dormant this time of year, the sweet sounds of spring still months away. The grounds crew is getting a crash course in snow removal this week. About 400 people have been working around the clock since a brutal storm dumped about two feet of snow on the New York area over the weekend. The workers are trying feverishly to get the stadium ready for the inaugural Pinstripe Bowl between Kansas State and Syracuse on Thursday afternoon, clearing the f ield, plazas, concourses and

enough seating for about 48,000 fans. Ready, set, hike? More like ready, set, shovel. “We had the field covered up and we’re getting it plowed, and the field looks great,” Yankees president Randy Levine said Tuesday. “They’ve been working all night and really there’s no issues whatsoever. It’ll be ready for the game.” In fact, Levine believes it will be ready today, when the Wildcats (7-5) and Orange (75) are scheduled to hold their final practices at the ballpark. The teams have been shuttled all over the New York City area this week, trying to squeeze in practice wherever they can. The Wildcats

worked out in a hotel ballroom on Sunday, when the snow and wind was crippling the city. Both teams practiced at the New York Giants’ indoor facility in East Rutherford, N.J., on Monday and the New York Jets’ training facility in Florham Park, N.Y., on Tuesday. Kansas State was fortunate just to arrive on Sunday. Its charter landed shortly before the storm swept through with a vengeance, one of the last flights into the city before the three major airports shut down. Syracuse also made it from its campus in upstate New York, only slightly behind schedule, despite conditions that made driving nearly unbearable.

PHILADELPHIA’S BRENT CELEK (87) IS TACKLED by Minnesota’s Asher Allen (21) and Jamarca Sanford (33). The Vikings beat the Eagles, 24-14, on Tuesday in Philadelphia.

Vikings fly past Eagles P H I L A D E L P H I A ( AP ) — The Philadelphia Eagles got their bye a week early — and not the way they wanted. Joe Webb threw for 195 yards and ran for a touchdown in his first career start filling in for an injured Brett Favre, and the lowly Minnesota Vikings stunned Michael Vick and the NFC East champion Eagles, 24-14, in the NFL’s first Tuesday game since 1946. Adrian Peterson ran for 118 yards and a score, helping the Vikings (6-9) knock Philadelphia out of contention for a first-round playoff bye. The Eagles (10-5) could’ve secured a first-round bye with a victory over the Vikings and Dallas and with a loss by either Chicago or Atlanta next week. Now the Eagles are locked into the NFC’s No. 3 seed and will host the No. 6 seed on Jan. 8 or 9. Their f inal game against the Cowboys is meaningless in the standings, so it’s likely Vick and most of the starters will rest. Two days after a winter storm forced a postponement, there wasn’t even a snowflake visible at the Linc. The game was switched from Sunday because of a howling storm that dumped about a foot of snow in the area — perhaps a good idea considering Philadelphia’s history of snowball-throwing fans. But 42 years after fans got a bum rap for tossing snowballs at Santa — the man in the costume said it was playful pelting — the Eagles said snowballs didn’t factor in the decision to move the game. “There were a lot of issues considered, but that was absolutely not among them,” said Pamela Browner White, the Eagles senior vice president of public affairs and government relations. Nine days after rallying from a 21-point deficit in the final 7:18 to beat the New York Giants on DeSean Jackson’s 65-yard punt return on the final play, there would be no miracle at the Linc for the Eagles. Vick, selected as the NFC Pro Bowl starter shortly

before the game, mostly struggled after his 3-yard TD pass to Clay Harbor in the first quarter gave the Eagles a 7-0 lead. He lost two fumbles, threw an interception and was sacked six times. Trailing, 17-7, to start the fourth quarter, the Eagles cut the def icit to 3 when Vick scored on a 10-yard TD r u n . B ut t h e Vi k i n g s answered on the ensuing drive. Peterson ran in from the 1 to put Minnesota up 2414 with 6:43 left. The Pro Bowl running back showed no signs of the right knee injury that had him listed as questionable. Favre was inactive for the Vikings because of a concussion, missing his second game in three weeks after an NFLrecord 297 consecutive regular-season starts. The 41-year-old Favre got hurt last week against the Chicago Bears and was listed as doubtful. Vikings interim coach Leslie Frazier said on Monday that Favre still hadn’t passed initial concussion testing.

Three division titles remain unclaimed NEW YORK (AP) — Three division titles remain undecided heading into the final week of the NFL season: the AFC South, NFC South and NFC West. Indianapolis wins the AFC South by beating visiting Tennessee on Sunday, or if Jacksonville loses at Houston. The winner of Sunday’s game in Seattle between the Rams and Seahawks wins the NFC West. While the AFC wild cards belong to the Jets and either the Ravens or Steelers — whichever doesn’t take the AFC North — five teams have shots at NFC wild cards: Atlanta, New Orleans, Green Bay, Tampa Bay and the New York Giants. So the AFC is not very complicated, with New England the East winner, Kansas City champion of the West, and either Baltimore or Pittsburgh taking the North. The Steelers hold the tiebreaker over the Ravens and are at Cleveland on Sunday. Baltimore hosts Cincinnati. The Chiefs and the AFC South winner will host a wild-

card round playoff game. Things are more unsettled in the NFC, where Chicago (North) and Philadelphia (East) own division titles. Seattle (6-9) could become the first division winner in NFL history with a losing record if it beats St. Louis (78) in their finale, which has been flexed to a Sunday night game. New Orleans defeated Atlanta, 17-14, on Monday night to clinch a playoff spot. The Falcons can still wrap up their first division crown since 2004 and home field through the NFC playoffs by knocking off two-win Carolina at home in the final week of the season. The Packers (9-6) have the inside track for a wild card — win and they are in. The Giants and Bucs must win Sunday to have a shot at a wild card. Tampa Bay travels to New Orleans, Green Bay hosts archrival Chicago, while New York is at Washington to close out the regular season. No first-round byes have been clinched in the NFC.

Some food additives more harmful than others Q:

I am totally confused about all of the food additives out there. Can you help explain what they’re used for?

A:

Actually, one of our K-State Extension nutrition specialists, Tandalayo Kidd, just wrote a publication on “The Roles of Food Additives” that includes a chart listing the various categories of food additives, the functions of those additives, products they are typically found in, and examples of food additive names found on product labels. The chart is too long to print here, but please go on our website at www.douglas.ksu.edu and you can pull up the whole chart. Or, if you don’t have Internet access, call 843-7058, and we can send you the chart. Here is information about food additives that Kidd shares in her publication: For hundreds of years, food additives have been used to preserve foods. Prior to refrigeration, salt was used to preserve meats, vegetables were pickled in vinegar, and sugar was used to preserve fruits. Salt, vinegar and sugar seem harmless, but they are just a few among the list of more than 3,000 ingredients maintained by the FDA in its food additive database. Food additives are sub-

stances added to a food to preserve it, give it flavor or improve its taste and/or appearance. Manufacturers use additives in foods to retain nutritional value, maintain freshness and safety, and increase affordability and convenience. Basically, without food additives, our food supply would be limited and costly. There is growing concern about color additives being used in breakfast cereals, snack foods, soft drinks and other processed foods because of reports of hyperactivity and hypersensitivity in some children and consumers, respectively. However, the Food and Drug Administration has ruled these reports as inconclusive because of the inconsistencies between studies. Therefore, the food industry continues to use these inexpensive, brighter-than-natural color substances. Other additives such as fiber, vitamins and minerals can improve the nutrient density of a product and help protect against certain health problems. Breakfast cereal is a good example of a product that has been “enriched” (nutrients lost during processing are added back to the product) or “fortified” (nutrients have been added that did not originally exist in the product). However, in my opinion, try to choose “whole-grain” cere-

als and other grain products whenever possible instead of “enriched.” Preservatives, another category of food additive, protect food by slowing down the damage caused by bacteria, fungi, mold, yeast and air. Vitamin E, butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA) and butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT) are examples of preservatives used in baked goods because these additives hinder the rancidity of fats and oils. However, again it is my opinion that the more we buy local foods (including baked products) or make our own, we can reduce our reliance on these additives that preserve foods. Some food additives such as sorbitan monostearate may sound more harmful than others because the name is difficult to pronounce or the function is unknown, but sorbitan monostearate and egg yolks both serve as emulsifiers in

products to keep oil and water from separating. Although the FDA strictly monitors and regulates all food additives for safety based on the intended usage level in a product, consuming several different products with similar additives could increase risks for some chronic diseases. For example, salt (sodium) and sugar (sucrose) are very common household names, but too much sodium increases the risk for hypertension, and too much sugar increases the risk for obesity and dental issues. Hypertension and obesity both increase the risk for heart disease. Baking soda (sodium bicarbonate), monosodium glutamate (MSG), sodium benzoate, sodium carbonate and sodium erythorbate are all sodium-based ingredients, yet they are found in different products and serve different roles.

refrigerated for safety and quality. Large onions have the brown or red paper-like peel that protects the onion and is always peeled off. The peel adds a layer of protection from contamination. Green onions, on the other hand, are more vulnerable to contamination. Large onions become a problem when they are sautéed and left warm until use. These have been linked to foodborne illness. It is best to sauté onions per order. As far as onions helping to prevent the flu, this is an old superstition and will just make your house smell like onions.

Likewise, corn syrup, highfructose corn syrup, brown sugar, maple syrup, molasses and evaporated cane juice are all sugar ingredients that appear in different products and contribute the majority of the added sugar consumed in the American diet. Q: Are cut onions safe? A: An e-mail rumor has been circulating for a few years about how dangerous large onions are after they are peeled and cut. The claim is the onions are bacteria “magnets” and the remaining fresh cut onion should never be kept to use later. They also claim that cut onions left lying around the house kills flu germs. Frankly, it’s a waste of good onions. Any food that is not handled safely with clean hands and clean equipment can be a problem. Leftover cut fresh vegetables must be

Clean up your holiday eating with a delicious, healthy salad By Sarah Henning sarah@lawrence.com

Well, how’s the fridge looking? A bit deflated after all that holiday eating? If your fridge was stuffed with a defrosting turkey only days ago but is now a wasteland of congealed mashed potatoes and stale sugar cookies, just shut the fridge door. Get in the car. Now, drive to the store and buy the ingredients for this festive and tasty Bulgur Salad with Arugula, Pomegranate Seeds and Toasted Hazelnuts. It’s red and green, and filling all over with the inclusion of bulgur, a whole grain that is most famously used in tabbouleh and contains twice the fiber of long-grain brown rice and about 50 fewer calories per cooked cup. If you need to get back on the healthy eating train after a weekend of holiday gluttony, this is definitely the way to go.

MEATLESS MONDAYS Every Monday at Lawrence.com, we’re going meatless. Meatless Monday is a moneyand health-saving initiative so old that even Herbert Hoover participated in it. Started during World War I, Meatless Monday encouraged Americans to cut meat out of their diets at least one day a week to save precious war-time resources. The campaign returned along with rationing during World War II and helped the allies keep Europe fed. But it wasn't until 2003 that Meatless Monday became a permanent campaign, backed by Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School for Public Health's Center for a Livable Future. The idea? To help Americans cut meat consumption by 15 percent to help both the community's overall

Irony, breaded and fried In other vegetarian-spotturns-omnivore news, the owner of Lawrence’s all-vegetarian restaurant decided to close the restaurant down and open a chicken restaurant in the same space. Nancy Nguyen launched 10th Street Vegetarian Bistro, 125 E. 10th St. in late 2009 out of love for the vegetarians who frequent her first Lawrence restaurant, The Orient Vietnamese Cuisine, 1006 Mass. But, she says, the vegetarian menu just didn’t work out. In early December, Nguyen decided to flip the bistro space into a comfort-food haven for poultry-lovers: Oh Boy! Chicken.

FARM TO SCHOOL

OLD HANGOUTS, NEW LIFE

Arguably, the biggest Lawrence food story of 2010 was made possible by some of the city’s smallest residents. Coming on the heels of successful gardens at private schools (Prairie Moon Waldorf School) and day care centers around Lawrence, The Community Mercantile’s Nancy O’Connor led an initiative that brought a garden and oodles of food education to West Junior High School in 2010. The West Junior High garden project made at least $4,000 for the garden’s continued use by selling produce at weekly farmers’ markets and also provided the school’s cafeteria with more than 180 pounds of produce, saving the school $700. O’Connor was also involved in a farm-to-school lunch put on at Cordley School in May that treated more than 300 kids to a meal prepared almost entirely from locally made ingredients, including produce some of the children helped harvest. That effort was led by Linda Cottin of Cottin’s Hardware & Rental, 1832 Mass., and Rick Martin of Free State Brewing Company, 636 Mass., who put together a menu containing lasagna, salad, whole-wheat breadsticks and a strawberry-rhubarb crumble. Other schools are in discussions for both gardens and possibly their own farm-to-table meals in the coming year. And just this month, the Douglas County Child Development Association and Success by 6 coalition of Douglas County received a $100,000 grant to help get gardens on-site at 25 home-based child care programs, and three area child-care centers will get access to fresh produce by joining up with a local community-supported agriculture (CSA) program.

In February 2010, Lawrence said goodbye to its first downtown grocery store in more than a decade, The Casbah Market, 803 Mass. When it launched in January 2008, the market was meant to be an urban grocery store for downtown Lawrence, who could also enjoy fast vegetarian meals and snacks made with mostly organic ingredients from the back counter and deli display. In July, the Casbah came to life again, this time as the new location for The Burger Stand, formerly located inside Dempsey’s Pub, 623 Vt. Maybe not so ironically, just as The Casbah was closing its doors, the owners of The Burger Stand, Robert and Molly Krause, were Richard Gwin/Journal-World File Photo launching their CHEF SIMON BATES looks over one taqueria, Esquina, of his latest creations at the Burger in the space next Stand in the Casbah, 803 Mass. door — 801 Mass. — which was formerly occupied by the historic Round Corner Drug Store and The Cheese & Salami Shoppe, a favorite of anyone in search of a quick sandwich, which closed in July 2009.

You see, Lindsey and I had to sample cocktails last night. We had to do it, because we know that not everyone likes to hit the bars on New Year’s Eve. And we wanted to be there for those of you, who, like us, choose not to imbibe in the public haunts of Lawrence or Kansas City on Amateur Night, where girls in too-few clothes (it’s freaking January, ladies!) throw up on their toohigh heels, and boys in shiny black

shirts block my path to the bathroom while they posture for the aforementioned girls. Yep, we’re over it. We will be tucked safely in at Lindsey’s New Year’s Eve We’d-Rather-Not-GetCaught-Up-In-A-Barfight Party, eating prime rib, warming ourselves by the chiminea, and we might even break out the cards for a game of gin rummy if we get really crazy. And, we’ll have cocktails. Good cocktails, made with booze we like the way we like, and we won’t have to wait for half an hour in line to get them, or pay nine bucks a pop for a watereddown version.

Boundaries with stepfather need to be set Annie’s Mailbox

Dear Annie: My husband’s childhood friend, who is almost 50, is getting married for the first time, and the wedding is in the Bahamas. Traveling to the wedding and staying at the resort is a great expense. Do we still need to give a gift? Money is tight, and since we don’t often see this friend, I think what he truly wants is our support and presence. Still, it feels strange not giving something. Would it be OK for several anniesmailbox@creators.com of his friends to each congrandchildren of his own. He tribute a small amount and makes no effort to push him- combine it into one gift card self on them — only me. Biff the newlyweds could use to is verbally violent, and I am afraid he will erupt if I ask him to back off. How do I handle this mess? Is it possible to get rid of this man without any major blowup? — Frightened

Marcy Sugar and Kathy Mitchell

Dear Bewildered: A gift is expected, but should be something you can afford. A combined gift card is fine. So is a bottle of wine. But do make sure there is a card with your good wishes. — Please e-mail your questions to anniesmailbox@comcast.net, or write to Annie’s Mailbox, P.O. Box 118190 Chicago, IL 60611.

Universal Crossword Edited by Timothy E. Parker December 29, 2010

While networks settle in for their long winter’s nap of reruns, two cable outlets launch new series tonight — both with the strange confessional aspects that “documentary” reality shows can bring. “I Used to Be Fat” (9 p.m., MTV) follows teens from their final weeks of high school until their opening weeks of college. They want to make their summer count, particularly on the scale. Every new episode will focus on a different teen, from a 306-pound student from a close-knit Italian family whose mother equates food with love to an obese girl who opted to be home-schooled rather than face the taunting of her peers. As we’ve come to expect from MTV series like “Real Life,” not all of the teens will succeed in losing the weight but “I Used To Be Fat” will drain maximum drama from their attempts. ● Weight-loss struggles pale besides the trials of the subjects on “My Secret Addiction” (8 p.m., TLC), a new hourly series. Don’t go looking for something as humdrum as “Hoarders.” These folks include a woman who can’t sleep unless she has her blow-dryer with her in bed. On full blast! It’s murder on her skin (not to mention her utility bills), and she runs the risk of burning down the house. Stranger still, this hairdryer obsession has been with her since she was 8 years old. Other subjects include people with a predilection for eating detergent. Another snacks on toilet paper. And one man has taken body building to an unhealthy extreme. “My Secret Addiction” joins TLC’s peculiar niche of shows about extreme situations, subcultures and behavior. The season opener of “Toddlers & Tiaras” (9 p.m., TLC) follows. ● “Great Performances” (8 p.m., PBS, check local listings) puts the accent on talent from South and Central America with “Celebracion: Gustavo Dudamel and the L.A. Phil with Juan Diego Florez.” The first half of the concert is devoted to Italian opera, notably Rossini. Then Florez sings works from composers closer to his native Peru and performs a popular cancion his father used to sing at home.

Tonight’s other highlights ● A vacation in Greece proves eventful on “Undercovers” (7 p.m., NBC). ● Director Clint Eastwood’s 2006 war drama “Letters From Iwo Jima” (7 p.m., IFC) presents the battle from the Japanese perspective and offers a companion piece to his film “Flags of Our Fathers” from the same year. ● On two episodes of “Human Target” (Fox), Winston retrieved (7 p.m.), one for the wives (8 p.m.). ● On two episodes of “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” (NBC), Marcia Gay Harden guest stars (8 p.m.), rape on campus (9 p.m.). ● An earthquake rattles some more than others on “Modern Family” (8 p.m., ABC). Nathan Lane guest stars. In a second helping (9 p.m.), Claire’s perfectionist vision of Halloween unravels. ● A gambling debt misunderstanding ends in murder on “The Defenders” (9 p.m., CBS).

JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS For Wednesday, Dec. 29: This year, you often juggle your personal desires with a need to lead. This conflict remains resolvable.

Dear Annie: My mother passed away two years ago. She had been with “Biff ” for about 13 years. Biff is a jerk. Most of the family discontinued all contact with my mother because no one could stand him. I tolerated him, but he made me uncomfortable. When I was a teenager, he made sexual comments to me, and I moved out of the house as soon as I could. He was also verbally abusive of my younger brother. Biff only behaved this way when Mom was at work, and when we told her, she did nothing. I am now 32, and even though my mother is gone, Biff is determined to stay in my life. He refers to my 3year-old as his “granddaughter.” He visits us at my work, where my daughter is in a daycare program. My husband and I are expecting our second baby soon, and there is no reason for Biff to consider himself related in any way to this child. My daughter will be starting a preschool program soon. When I told Biff, he said he would come to my house to see her. Annie, I do not want him coming into my home. I need a way to tell Biff that there is no longer a reason for him to hang around. He has a grown daughter and two

N.Y. struggles to dig out from under snow Morass at airports affecting travel throughout U.S. By Chris Hawley and Sara Kugler Frazier Associated Press Writers

AP File Photo

AN ENGINE TECHNICIAN WORKS on a vessel engine Feb. 17, 2009, at the Caterpillar company in Friedrichsort near Kiel, northern Germany. More than half of the 15,000 people that Caterpillar Inc., maker of the signature yellow bulldozers and tractors, has hired this year were outside the U.S.

Where are the jobs? American companies hiring, just not in U.S. By Pallavi Gogoi Associated Press Writer

Corporate profits are up. Stock prices are up. So why isn’t anyone hiring? Actually, many American companies are — just maybe not in your town. They’re hiring overseas, where sales are surging and the pipeline of orders is fat. More than half of the 15,000 people that Caterpillar Inc. has hired this year were outside the U.S. UPS is also hiring at a faster clip overseas. For both companies, sales in international markets are growing at least twice as fast as domestically. The trend helps explain why unemployment remains high in the United States, edging up to 9.8 percent last month, even though companies are performing well: All but 4 percent of the top 500 U.S. corporations reported profits this year, and the stock market is close to its highest point since the 2008 financial meltdown. But the jobs are going elsewhere. The Economic Policy Institute, a Washington think tank, says American companies have created 1.4 million jobs overseas this year, compared with less than 1 million in the U.S. The additional 1.4 million jobs would have lowered the U.S. unemployment rate to 8.9 percent, says Robert Scott, the institute’s senior international economist. “There’s a huge difference between what is good for American companies versus what is good for the American economy,” says Scott. American jobs have been moving overseas for more than two decades. In recent years, though, those jobs have become more sophisticated — think semiconductors and software, not toys and clothes. And now many of the products being made overseas aren’t coming back to the United States. Demand has grown dramatically this year in emerging markets like

India, China and Brazil. Meanwhile, consumer demand in the U.S. has been subdued. Despite a strong holiday shopping season, Americans are still spending 18 percent less than before the recession on furniture, and 10 percent less on electronics, according to MasterCard’s SpendingPulse. “Companies will go where there are fast-growing markets and big profits,” says Jeffrey Sachs, globalization expert and economist at Columbia University. “What’s changed is that companies today are getting top talent in emerging economies, and the U.S. has to really watch out.” With the future looking brighter overseas, companies are building there, too. Caterpillar, maker of the signature yellow bulldozers and tractors, has invested in three new plants in China in just the last two months to design and manufacture equipment. The decision is based on demand: Asia-Pacific sales soared 38 percent in the first nine months of the year, compared with 16 percent in the U.S. Caterpillar stock is up 64 percent this year. “There is a shift in economic power that’s going on and will continue. China just became the world’s secondlargest economy,” says David Wyss, chief economist at Standard & Poor’s, who notes that half of the revenue for companies in the S&P 500 in the last couple of years has come from outside the U.S. A key factor behind this runaway international growth is the rise of the middle class in these emerging countries. By 2015, for the first time, the number of consumers in Asia’s middle class will equal those in Europe and North America combined. “All of the growth over the next 10 years is happening in Asia,” says Homi Kharas, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution and formerly the World Bank’s chief economist for East Asia and the Pacific.

NEW YORK — Hundreds of airline passengers were stranded for up to 10 hours on the tarmac at overworked Kennedy Airport. Ambulances struggled to get patients through unplowed streets. City buses sat abandoned in the snow. The Christmas weekend blizzard proved to be the curse that keeps on giving Tuesday, as confusion and frustration snowballed in New York and the rest of the country. Officials warned it could take until New Year’s to rebook all passengers and straighten out the transportation mess created by the storm, which shut down all three of New York’s major airports for 24 hours and caused a ripple effect across the U.S. A high school band from Pennsylvania faced the prospect of marching in the Rose Bowl parade in Pasadena, Calif., with only half its musicians after the storm stranded the rest in Philadelphia. European tourists who planned to fly into New York found themselves in Chicago when their flights were diverted. Travelers as far away as San Francisco were marooned, even though they were headed nowhere near the Northeast. New York’s airports struggled to get planes in and out. But some jetliners couldn’t even get to the gate. At Kennedy, a British Airways plane from London carrying 300 passengers waited five hours for an open gate, and then two more hours for customs to open, said John Lampl, a spokesman for the airline. A Cathay Pacif ic flight that had been diverted to Toronto spent 10 hours on the tarmac, and a second

A SANITATION DEPARTMENT PLOW TRUCK IS STUCK Tuesday on West 16th Street in the Coney Island neighborhood of the Brooklyn borough of New York. Cathay Pacific plane with 250 people was still on the runway after eight hours as of Tuesday afternoon. Passenger Abi Subramanian, 38, said supplies on the plane were running low and he was worried about his wife and 2-month-old daughter. “We’re going to be in trouble very shortly. There’s no food left for her,” he told The Associated Press by cell phone. Airlines were dispatching planes to the airport without lining up gate space first, causing backups on the ground, said Steve Coleman, a spokesman for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which operates Kennedy. Cathay Pacific spokesman Gus Whitcomb said the planes had taken off under the assumption that they would have somewhere to go upon landing. In general, U.S. airlines operating domestic flights are not allowed to keep passengers waiting on the tarmac for more than three

hours. But the rule does not apply to international flights or foreign airlines. The chaos was also reflected in New York’s streets, where hundreds of abandoned city buses and dozens of ambulances still sat in the middle of snowdrifts from the storm, which clobbered the city with up to 2 feet of snow. A video that instantly went viral on the Internet showed city crews accidentally smashing a parked car as they tried to free a city construction vehicle. Officials predicted streets would not be clear until today, a day later than they first promised. “And even then I’m not so sure,” Mayor Michael Bloomberg said. Brooklyn resident Annie O’Daly waited more than 30 hours for help after falling and breaking her ankle Sunday night at around 8 p.m., said Jim Leonhardt, her husband. An ambulance didn’t arrive until 2:30 a.m. Tuesday. Leonhardt had to help paramedics carry her out onto the

New first-class stamps will be ‘forever’ By Douglass K. Daniel Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON — Rummaging around for 1- and 2-cent postage stamps when postal rates go up is heading the way of the Pony Express. Beginning in January, all new stamps good for 1 ounce of f irst-class mail will be marked as “forever.” The move is designed to help customers cope with postage increases, a U.S. Postal Service official told The Associated Press on Tuesday. The off icial requested anonymity to discuss a policy that hasn’t been announced formally. Postmaster General Patrick R. Donahoe plans to announce the new policy Jan. 14, the official said. “I think that’s a great idea,” Sean Swilling, a research analyst for commercial property, said inside a downtown

that would be perfect.” When the Postal Service unveiled its first-class commemorative stamps for 2011 on Tuesday, all were marked “forever” instead of the current rate of 44 cents. The initial f irst-class stamp under the new policy will be the Lunar New Year: Year of the Rabbit stamp, to be issued Jan. 22. It will be followed by stamps commemorating Kansas statehood on Jan. 29 and, in February, the centennial of President Ronald Reagan’s birth. The Forever Stamp, first issued in April 2007 and featuring the Liberty Bell, was designed for use regardless of changes in postal rates. They are sold at the prevailing price of 1 ounce of domestic first-class postage. The Postal Service says that 28 billion Forever Stamps have been sold since, generating $12.1 billion in

Some new laws may not be on the books for long By Scott Bauer Associated Press Writer

MADISON, WIS. — Revamped gun measures and tougher rules for payday lenders are among the laws set to take effect around the country on Jan. 1. But some of them may not be on the books for long. This January, the statutes will kick in just as freshly elected governors and legislators arrive for work. And if new GOP majorities succeed in getting legislation repealed, the result may be sudden U-turns on issues that were only recently debated. B efore the November election, Democrats controlled legislatures in 27 states, with Republicans in charge of just 14. But after the nationwide Republican sweep, the GOP will soon control 26, the Democrats only 17. Control of others is split between the parties. The election also increased the number of Republican

governors from 23 to 26. With the switch in party control could come abrupt changes in the way some states handle government regulation, privatization and other matters. Nowhere was the political shift more dramatic than in Wisconsin, where power in the Statehouse will shift wholesale from Democrats to Republicans. Already, incoming Republican Gov. Scott Walker and others would like to head off a law that makes it tougher for payday loan companies and auto lenders to do business in the state. Until Democrats pushed the law through the Senate and House in 2010, Wisconsin was the only state that did not regulate those industries, and consumer advocates complained that lenders were exploiting poor people by charging exorbitant interest rates. Democratic Gov. Jim Doyle shepherded the bill into law. But Walker said the new reg-

unplowed street and over a snowbank. Officials pleaded with private companies to help out, and the city converted various vehicles in its fleet into snowplows, including trucks typically used for cleaning graffiti. “It’s a bad situation and we’re working together to correct it,” Bloomberg said. Some 1,000 vehicles had been removed from three major New York City-area expressways alone, the mayor said. In New Jersey, police in helicopters counted at least 60 vehicles stranded along a highway at the shore. Motorists were taken in National Guard Humvees and other vehicles to shelters. In Asbury Park, N.J., a commuter train hit a tractor-trailer that got stuck at a railroad crossing. The driver had left the truck and no injuries were reported. More than 5,000 flights had been canceled since Sunday night at all three New Yorkarea airports, about 1,000 of them on Tuesday alone.

ulations go too far, and that the outright ban on loans secured by an auto title isn’t what many legislators want. “My hope is we’re able to go back to that commonsense middle ground” with lesser restrictions, said Republican state Rep. Robin Vos, co-chairman of the budget committee. The new law limits payday loans to a maximum of $1,500. In New Hampshire, Republicans hope to shoot down a new gun law they say doesn’t do enough to protect private property and gun owners’ rights. Republicans captured the legislative majority from Democrats in the midterm election. In the recent session, lawmakers gave residents the right to display a gun or other weapon to warn away a potential attacker. Republicans plan to replace it with a stronger version that was vetoed by Democratic Gov. John Lynch in 2006. The tougher law would allow gun

owners to use deadly force when threatened, inside their home or anywhere else. “Why should I have to run away?” said Republican state Sen. Jack Barnes, who said residents who feel threatened should be able to use whatever force necessary. “It’s my house.” In a switch benefitting the Democrats, incoming Gov. Jerry Brown in California may undo part of his Republican predecessor’s legacy on privatization. Brown could stop the controversial sale of 11 state buildings — including the Ronald Reagan building in Los Angeles and the San Francisco Civic Center — for $2.3 billion. Outgoing Republican Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger sought the sale to help balance the state’s budget. As the state attorney general, Brown declined to defend the measure in court and asked that it be delayed. A court-ordered delay means the issue will be pending

when Brown takes office Jan. 3. While other states have increased “sin taxes” and fees, Massachusetts will remove a 6.25 percent sales tax on alcohol in effect since August 2009. The repeal followed a major advertising campaign by liquor store owners and beer distributors. California will try to rein in its rampant paparazzi. New laws dictate that those caught driving recklessly while chasing celebrities in the state can now be charged with a misdemeanor punishable by up to six months in jail and a $2,500 fine. Previously they were charged with a lesser infraction. The state will also downgrade marijuana possession from a misdemeanor to an infraction requiring no court appearance. Delaware, Kentucky and Kansas will join many other states adopting tougher laws regulating cell phone use while driving.

total revenue. The stamps without denominations already account for 85 percent of its stamp program, the service says. The Postal Service sought a 2-cent increase in postage rates for 2011, but the independent Postal Rate Commission rejected the request. The post office is appealing the decision in federal court. Use of the Internet as well as the economic downturn have been cited for a 3.5 percent decline in mail volume from 2009 to 2010. The Postal Service lost $8.5 billion in the year ending Sept. 30, even after trimming more than 100,000 jobs in recent years, and estimates it will lose $6 billion to $7 billion in the next year. One of its proposals for dealing with its financial troubles calls for cutting delivery to five days a week instead of six, a change Congress must approve.

West Africa delegation tells Gbagbo he must go ABIDJAN, IVORY COAST — West African leaders who came to deliver an ultimatum to Laurent Gbagbo met with him late into the night Tuesday after threatening a military ouster if he doesn’t accept an offer to go into exile a month after the disputed election. The regional delegation led by presidents from Sierra Leone, Cape Verde and Benin held meetings with both Gbagbo and internationally recognized winner Alassane Ouattara, then returned to meet with Gbagbo a second time late Tuesday. Gbagbo, the incumbent leader who has been in power for a decade in Ivory Coast, has so far shown no interest in stepping aside despite the calls for him to go. While Ouattara has been endorsed by most of the world, Gbagbo still maintains control of Ivory Coast’s military and security forces. Weeks of postelection violence have left at least 173 people dead, according to the U.N.
