New Year starts with a twirl By Stephen Montemayor


After another record-breaking year, the Kansas University Endowment Association is about 80 percent of the way to its eight-year, $1.2 billion fundraising campaign for KU. Beginning with the first gift — a relatively modest $75 logged on July 1, 2008 — KU Endowment has gone on to raise $957 million to date as part of its “Far Above” campaign. The campaign is set to end in June 2016. In the 2013 fiscal year Seuferling KU Endowment set a fundraising record for the sixth straight year. It raised $174.2 million and won its second award for educational fundraising from the Council for the Advance The ment and Support of EduKansas cation.

At the beginning of the three-hour class, dancers wrote on thin strips of paper what it was they planned to “release” to the past. They put the strips in a bowl to be ritually burned later. After a period of dancing, the next phase of the class saw dancers commit to new plans for 2014.

Everything must go, teeth included By Ben Unglesbee

As he readies himself and his office for retirement, Kansas University anthropology professor David Frayer’s career has become a kind of excavation site, something he’s plenty familiar with. He’s been digging through his stuff, upending his office. After nearly 40 years at the university,

Frayer now has to find new homes for the bones, casts, books, journal articles and countless other artifacts he has accumulated over a lifetime. Pulling book after book from a shelf in his office, which enjoys a stunning western view over campus from the sixth floor of Fraser Hall, Frayer frets over them. The books contain drawings, photos and descriptions of scientifically important remnants

Bikes at heart of youth outreach KANSAS CITY — A program aimed at encouraging self-reliance and physical activity among poor inner-city youths not only provides them with bikes, but also teaches them to maintain their refurbished rides. The Kansas City Star reports that 25-year-old Ben Alexander was working at a community center when a seventh-grader started asking questions about how he biked to and from work. The boy said they should fix up bikes for children because few in the neighborhood have them. Since 2011, more than 1,000 have graduated from the FreeWheels bike safety classes that Alexander has taken to Kansas City middle schools, apartment complexes and social service agencies. And hundreds have been given bikes through the group’s Earn-a-Bike program, where kids learn how to take apart bicycles and put them back together.

as Frayer wrote in a New York Times op-ed from May, were seen as “tumbling, bumbling, mumbling fools who aimlessly wandered the landscape eking out a miserable, forlorn existence.� Frayer himself played a role in teaching humans otherwise — that Neanderthals were smart, cultured and closer to modern humans than anyone had thought. It started when a Czechoslovakian friend showed him the skull of an early modern human with a long, low cranium. Frayer realized it shared anatomical features with Neanderthals. “While I looked at it, I went, ‘whoa!’� Frayer said. That was in 1974, and few people were ready to leave behind their notions about Neanderthals just then. After more than 30 years, and major technological strides in gene sequencing technology, Frayer and his colleagues have been vindicated. Scientists working to map the Neanderthal genome have found that modern Europeans share about 4 percent of their genes uniquely with Neanderthals, a proportion large

Moving on Certainly there has been more to his career and life than bones. For one, he’s traveled a wide swath of the world: Europe and Africa, Indonesia and Israel. He’s written a cookbook, compiled after examining and photographing the insides of refrigerators of friends across the world. He also, briefly, joined the carnival. It’s been an interesting career, and it’s not entirely past him. In the spring Frayer will work on a research project and attend an international conference later in the year. At home he’ll have his garden and his chickens to occupy him And he’ll have the spring semester to finish cleaning out his office. — Reporter Ben Unglesbee can be reached at 832-7173.

Public safety agencies to get technology upgrades By Stephen Montemayor

The new year will find area public safety agencies welcoming new technologies while upgrading old ones that, in some cases, are pushing 20 years old. The city’s new computer-aided dispatch and records management systems, computer

programs that send information from emergency dispatch centers to responders and record data on the calls, are scheduled to go live in August and will replace a previous system now more than 20 years old. Police Chief Tarik Khatib expects the new system to allow police to pre-program information such as which officers on

duty are most suited to respond to specific calls. For example, he said, dispatchers could call up a list of officers with crisis intervention training and assign them to mental health calls. A new GPS component would deploy officers based on how close they are to calls. Douglas County Emergency Communications Director Scott

Ruf said the county will also transition to a new digital radio system linked with Johnson County to provide backup 911 and radio communications Ruf Please see SAFETY, page 4A

Mary Pilcher-Cook, R-Shawnee, said. While the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the Affordable Care Act’s requirement that most people have health insurance, it also ruled that the expansion of Medicaid was optional for states. The court said Congress may offer grants to states and require states to comply with certain conditions but it also said the federal government couldn’t threaten the loss of other funds to force action.

Dozens of Lawrencearea residents have been able to stay in their homes this year, in spite of cuts to federal housing funds, because local housing officials were able to move other funds into the Section 8 program. Carrie Lindsey, resident service director of the Lawrence-Douglas County Housing Authority, said most of the 732 subsidized units in the county are occupied. The authority administers Section 8 vouchers, which program

participants use to pay their rent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When the income is cut to find the housing, it not only hurts the tenant but it also hurts the private sector,â&#x20AC;? Lindsey said. Both the tenant and the housing authority pay the landlords of Section 8 housing. If funds are cut, the landlord loses rent. After losing $77,000 in federal funds this year, the housing authority found money in the Moving to Work program. Started in 1998, that program also funds public housing and Section 8 assistance for those who are moving off welfare and into

For example, visitors can peer into windows from beneath the stairs on the north entrance and see into the visitor center. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a really nice tie to see where things are,â&#x20AC;?

Lawrence-Douglas County Fire Medical also will improve its tech tools. Chief Mark Bradford said that, through a FEMA grant, Fire Medical will buy a video conferencing system for broadcast-

the job market. Beverly Hyatt, from the housing authority office, said the Moving to Work program creates a rent structure in line with a familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s income so that they can afford the rent and have some disposable money to spend or save. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have had to reallocate funds from the Moving to Work program to stay afloat,â&#x20AC;? said Hyatt. She said the agencyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s overall budget had been cut by 11 percent. Hyatt was able to allocate money among various programs to avoid service cuts. Lawrence was relatively lucky. Housing authorities

in other cities had to find other ways to save money. For the past year, the Wichita Housing Authority, for example, has closed its office every other Friday, putting all 39 employees on furlough, said Mary K. Vaughn, director of the Wichita Housing and Community Authority. In Lawrence, officials are grateful that they will end the year with no layoffs or furloughs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard of all the cuts and adjustments that Wichita is having to make,â&#x20AC;? said Lindsey â&#x20AC;&#x153;As weird as this year has been, we would have been in bad shape if we did not have MTW.â&#x20AC;?

Also in 2014, iPads will replace the pen-and-paper inspection process Fire Medical officials have used to inspect buildings. Previously, Bradford said, staff would perform a written inspection, drive back to their station and

enter the results into a computer before printing and later mailing the report to the buildingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tenant. Bradford said the new software will have a copy of the fire safety code and a corresponding checklist. Once complete, inspection results will be emailed or faxed to those inspected and can also be sent to Fire Medicalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s database.

The renovations started in 2001 under Republican Gov. Bill Graves. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve included upgrades to the buildingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s offices, meeting rooms and mechanical systems. Some previously drab rooms and hallways have been restored to their original 19th-century opulence. Early estimates of the work pegged the cost at

between $90 million and $120 million, but that was before legislative leaders added an underground parking garage and approved an expansion of the basement for new offices. The state also discovered unexpected needs for repairing the exterior stone and replacing copper on the buildingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s roof and dome. During the renovations, crews discovered many unknown features included during the original construction, including fire-

Much of the exterior work has been completed, though some of the final pieces of landscaping wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be installed until the spring when planting is more conducive. A concrete driveway that previously encircled the building was replaced with paver stones. New lighting was installed along sidewalks, but lights that previously illuminated the building were not replaced. LQIR /Î&#x2013;%(57< +$//)RUFDOODFFHVVLELOLW\    0$66

GOING OUT A guide to what’s happening in Lawrence

CLOCKWISE FROM TOP RIGHT, Arcade Fire, Dr. Dog, Local Natives and St. Vincent are some of the bands local musicians are looking forward to seeing perform in the area in 2014.

Local musicians tell us their most-anticipated concerts By Nadia Imafidon


tart looking into advanced ticket prices and marking your calendar now. Local and otherwise, 2014 is loaded with great shows and bands to watch blow up the Lawrence scene. But don’t take my word for it. Let some of your favorite local musicians weigh in on the top three area shows they’re most excited to attend in 2014:

Haunt Ananta’s picks Mammoth Life, Middle of the Map Fest 2014, April 4-6/$45 These Lawrencians turned San Franciscan make up the femalefronted indie rock quartet known for the dreamiest of pop. Having moved to California in 2011, they adopted a sunny, West Coast vibe playing up subjects of youth, love and adventure in songs on their latest, self-titled album, released in the summer of 2013. The album showcases the remarkable lead vocals of Kix Mead along with layers of dreamy pop rock-alternative sounds to put all listeners at complete ease.

The band will be playing at Kansas City’s Middle of the Map Fest in April.

Mobb Deep, Granada, April 29/$20 This Queensbridge hip-hop duo has appeared on records that have sold more than 40 million copies. One of the most successful rap duos, Mobb Deep is known to release dark, gritty anthems that speak on their surroundings and lifestyle such as powerful tracks “Survival of the Fittest” and “Quiet Storm.” They briefly disbanded in 2012, announcing an indefinite hiatus via Twitter, but seem to have set aside their differences to celebrate their 20th anniversary on tour. Scott Stapp, Granada, March 25/$20 Creed lead singer Scott Stapp released his debut album “Proof of Life” in November, the single “Slow Suicide” an autobiographical song that Stapp says may actually be a toned-down version of his life story. Drawing on real-life experiences, this entire emotionally charged rock album is a self-portrait that chronicles his

life journey, starting with his long relationship with Creed.

Middle Twin’s picks St. Vincent, Liberty Hall, March 31/$25-$30 Annie Clark, aka St. Vincent, is touring to support her newest, self-titled album to be released in February, just one month before she graces the stage at Liberty Hall with her new lavender-gray hairdo. St. Vincent is a one-woman band that mixes eclectic pop ballad sounds with electric guitar and hints of jazz. “Strange Mercy,” her 2011 album, was met with great acclaim, fueled by emotional content and a technological purge. She claims her newest album came from the desire to make a pop record that one could play at a funeral. Local Natives, Granada, April 25/$23 This psych-rock band based in Los Angeles found success immediately following their first album of incredible songwriting and three-part harmonies. Their second album, “Hummingbird,” was included in iTunes’ 2013

best of albums of the year. After the release of “Gorilla Manor,” their first album in 2011, vocalist Kelcey Ayer’s mother passed away in the summer of 2012. Pouring unguarded emotion into beautifully swelling “Hummingbird” track “Columbia,” Ayer addresses his loss with this line: “If you never felt all of my love, I pray now you do.”

Arcade Fire, Starlight Theatre, April 26/$30.50-$60.50 Montreal’s Arcade Fire released one of indie rock’s “monstrously anticipated” albums this year, says Pitchfork. “Reflektor,” a tworecord, 75-minute set of 13 songs, received a collection of high praises for its theatrical ambition and frantic instrumentation. The title track is a sevenminute-long, synthy dance track with a Caribbean rhythmic undertone (singer Régine Chassagne is of Haitian descent). David Bowie, one of Arcade Fire’s biggest fans, makes a vocal appearance on the track. The band will stop on its current tour at Kansas City’s Starlight Theatre in April.

Philanthropy bounces back in 2013 By Brett Zongker Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Philanthropy made a comeback in large donations in 2013 with the nation’s wealthiest donors giving more than $3.4 billion to charity, according to a new tally of the top 10 gifts of 2013 by the Chronicle of Philanthropy. The analysis of the year’s top gifts also found there were more gifts of $100 million or more than in 2012. In 2013, there were 15 publicly announced gifts of at least $100 million, compared with 11 in 2012. The largest donation of 2013 came from Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, who announced in December that they had given 18 million shares of Facebook stock to the Silicon Valley Community Foundation. The gift was valued at more than $990 million. This was the first time donors under the age of 30 have made the nation’s largest philanthropic gift, according to the report. Colleges and universities also were among

the primary beneficiaries of some of the nation’s biggest donations, the report found. Nike Inc. co-founder and chairman Philip Knight and his wife, Penelope, made the second largest gift commitment of 2013, pledging $500 million to the Oregon Health and Science University Foundation for cancer research. The university has to match the donation in the next two years to receive the full gift. The third highest gift of 2013 was a $350 million pledge from Michael Bloomberg to Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore to promote cross-disciplinary studies and undergraduate financial aid. Other top gifts by American philanthropists were pledged to Yale, Stanford, the University of Michigan, Yeshiva University in New York City, Georgetown University, Columbia Business School, the University of California at San Diego and Tsinghua University in Beijing. After years of sluggish philanthropy, the upward trend provides a positive outlook for the nation’s nonprofits,

said Chronicle of Philanthropy Editor Stacy Palmer. “The fact that we had so many gifts that were $100 million or more is an indication that people are really giving big again,” and that may continue into 2014, Palmer said. “People seem more optimistic about the economy, and certainly the strong stock market has propelled a lot of gifts. It looks like it’s going to be a better year.” In 2012, the top gifts totaled $5 billion, but that tally included three $1 billion gifts from Warren Buffett to his children’s foundations. When those gifts are excluded, the other top gifts of 2012 totaled just $2 billion compared with $3.4 billion in 2013. However, the wealthiest philanthropists did not give as much in 2013 as before the Great Recession, according to the analysis. In 2007, before the recession, the biggest gifts totaled $4.1 billion. The chronicle also examined all gifts of $1 million or more. Those gifts totaled $9.6 billion in 2013, compared with $6.1 billion in 2012.

Dr. Dog, Liberty Hall, March 10/$21.50 Strongly influenced by The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and The Velvet Underground, indie pop’s Dr. Dog is committed to cultivating a stripped-down live form of expression. The six-member band devoted to the barebones aesthetic are touring to support recent seventh full-length album “B-Room.” This album was recorded in a studio (and living quarters) built by band members in an abandoned hometown silversmith factory — the space the album was named after. It reflects the organic sound of the six playing together in a room, leaving overdubbing and layering seen in other works in the past. iheartlocalmusic’s SXSW Fest, Jackpot, Feb. 21-22/$5 Based on the weeklong Austin festival, I Heart Local Music puts together a twoday extravaganza of some of the best local rock, hiphop and pop in the area.

On New Year’s Day, Colorado lights up legally By Kristen Wyatt Associated Press

DENVER — The nation’s first recreational pot industry opened in Colorado on Wednesday, kicking off a marijuana experiment that will be watched closely around the world. Already, it is attracting people from across the country. Some of the sights in Denver, the Mile High City, on the historic day:

Jailhouse to pot house Less than a year ago, James Aaron Ramsey was serving a brief jail sentence for pot possession. On Wednesday, the 28-year-old musician, having driven from Missouri, was among the first to legally buy weed. He brought a guitar and strummed folk tunes for about 20 people waiting outside one dispensary for sales to begin, as light snow fell at times. “I’m going to frame the

receipt when I go home,” Ramsey said with a smile. Others who were waiting in line shared their own pot incarceration stories over coffee and funnel cakes. “They made me go to rehab for marijuana, but I’d get out and see all my underage friends getting drunk all the time,” said 24-year-old Brandon Harris, who drove 20 hours from Blanchester, Ohio. “I had to do pee tests, probation visits, the whole thing. Trafficking conviction. Nineteen years old. For a plant, how stupid,” he said, shaking his head.

EMPLOYEE DAVID MARLOW, right, helps a customer, who smells a strain of marijuana before buying it, at the crowded sales counter inside the Medicine Man marijuana store, which opened Wednesday as a legal recreational outlet in Denver. High Tours, had 10 clients waiting in the limo who paid $295 for four hours of chauffeuring by a “marijuana concierge” who would help them choose strains and edible pot products. “We’re your grandmother’s pot connection,” the 63-yearold said. “We’re not the hippie stoners who are going to stand in this cold and party.”

Morris said she’s booked through the end of February with out-of-state clients. Guests receive samples in designer bags before getting tours.

Supply and demand Not all marijuana users in Colorado were toasting the dawn of retail sales. Some medical marijuana patient groups say

they’re worried about supply. That’s because the retail inventory for recreational use is coming entirely from the preexisting medical inventory. Laura Kriho of the Cannabis Therapy Institute said she worries prices will spike and patients will be left paying more if they’re not able to grow their own. “We hope that the focus on recreational doesn’t take the focus away from patients who really need this medicine,” she said.

Not everyone waited Recreational sales weren’t legal until Wednesday, but pot has been legal and free to share in Colorado for more than a year. So marijuana aficionados gathered statewide to mark New Year’s Eve with a group toke to count down to when sales begin at 8 a.m. “This is just pure joy,” said David Earley, a 24-yearold marijuana grower from Colorado Springs.

Long lines Two hours. Three hours. Five hours. Marijuana shoppers Wednesday paid a price for shopping on the first day — long waits. Lines snaked down the street outside most pot shops, and the waiting crowds routinely gave a little cheer when shoppers emerged, bags in hand. “How long have we been here?” one marijuana shopper asked his buddies as they emerged from one shop. The sun was setting and the group from Olathe hadn’t yet checked in to their hotel. They’d arrived at the pot shop five hours earlier.The group was smiling, though. “To be able to buy this legally, a much better quality than anything I could get at home, and know it’s safe and OK? That’s a good thing,” said Chris Albrecht, a 25-yearold jazz drummer on his way to a ski vacation in Winter Park.

Justice blocks provision of ACA

FIREWORKS EXPLODE ABOVE THE CENTRAL SQUARE of Rosa Khutor ski resort, a venue of the 2014 Winter Olympics, in Krasnaya Polyana, near Sochi, Russia, during New Year’s celebrations Wednesday.

WASHINGTON — A Supreme Court justice has blocked implementation of portions of President Barack Obama’s health care law that would have forced some religionaffiliated organizations to provide health insurance for employees that includes birth control. Justice Sonia Sotomayor’s decision came late Tuesday night after a different effort by Catholic-affiliated groups from around the nation. Those groups rushed to the federal courts to stop Wednesday’s start of portions of the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare. Sotomayor acted on a request from an order of Catholic nuns in Colorado, whose request for a stay had been denied by the lower courts. Sotomayor is giving the government until Friday morning to respond to her decision.

BRIEFLY Winter weather freezes Northeast HARTFORD, CONN. — Residents and emergency management officials in New England and parts of New York prepared on Wednesday for a winter storm predicted to help usher in 2014 with snow and frigid temperatures across much of the region. Snow was expected to begin falling overnight, promising a messy commute for the first business day of the new year, but the full storm wasn’t expected to hit until later today. As much as a foot of snow or more was forecast for some areas overnight today into Friday, and temperatures were expected to plummet, with some areas seeing highs just above zero, the National Weather Service said. “There will be travel problems,” said Hugh Johnson, a National Weather Service meteorologist in Albany, N.Y. “It will be very cold.” The storm dropped a half-foot or more of snow in Illinois on Wednesday, prompting hundreds of flight cancellations into and out of Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport, according to the aviation tracking website Sections of interior southern New England and New York could get up to a

foot of snow, with forecasts generally calling for 6 to 12 inches. New York City, likely to see 3 to 7 inches, issued a snow alert. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo urged the city’s commuters to leave their cars at home in case major highways are closed for tonight’s evening rush hour.

Old arguments to get fresh paint ATLANTA — Both Republicans and Democrats are looking for fresh ways to pitch old arguments as they head into the final midterm election year of Barack Obama’s presidency. Eager to capitalize as the president’s job approval rating hovers in the low 40s, Republicans are looking to hammer the clumsy implementation of Obama’s health care overhaul and bemoan an economy that, while improving, still grows too slowly. They’re already painting Democrats as fiscally irresponsible underlings of an increasingly unpopular president whose government creates more problems than it solves. Democrats say they’ll run as the party of average Americans and paint Republicans as out-oftouch allies of the wealthy, with a stubborn streak that forced a partial government shutdown and still prevents practical solu-

tions for national problems. They’re advocating populist positions like a minimum wage increase and an end to tax breaks for energy companies, and they’re already reminding voters of Republicans’ struggle to connect with women, nonwhites and younger Americans. They’re also looking to exploit the rift between tea party conservatives and establishment Republicans. Republicans hold the House majority, and Democrats control the Senate; so each side wants to reclaim a second chamber to end the Capitol Hill divide that has largely resulted in gridlock for the past three years. Also at stake are a majority of governors’ seats, which control key policy decisions around the country and will help shape the landscape for the 2016 presidential election.

Nations rush to claim the Arctic WASHINGTON — The U.S. is racing to keep pace with stepped-up activity in the once sleepy Arctic frontier, but it is far from being in the lead. Nations across the world are hurrying to stake claims to the Arctic’s resources,

which might be home to 13 percent of the world’s undiscovered oil and 30 percent of its untapped natural gas. There are emerging fisheries and hidden minerals. Cruise liners loaded with tourists are sailing the Arctic’s frigid waters in increasing numbers. Cargo traffic along the Northern Sea Route, one of two shortcuts across the top of the Earth in summer, is on the rise. The U.S., which takes over the two-year rotating chairmanship of the eight-nation Arctic Council in 2015, has not ignored the Arctic, but critics say the U.S. is lagging behind the other seven: Russia, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Iceland, Canada and Denmark, through the semiautonomous territory of Greenland.

‘Fresh Prince’ pop James Avery dies NEW YORK — James Avery, the bulky character actor who laid down the law at home and on the job as the Honorable Philip Banks in “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,” has died. Avery’s publicist, Cynthia Snyder, told The Associated Press that Avery died Tuesday in Glendale, Calif., following complications from open heart surgery. He was 68, Snyder said. Avery, who stood 6-foot-

5, played the family patriarch and a wealthy attorney and judge on the popular TV comAvery edy that launched the acting career of Will Smith as Banks’ troublemaking nephew. The sitcom, which aired on NBC from 1990 to 1996, was set in the Banks’ mansion, to which Smith’s character was sent from Philadelphia when things got tough in his own neighborhood. Fans came to know the imposing Banks as “Uncle Phil.” Avery liked to say that the way to be an actor was to act, and he had a busy and diverse career before, during and after “Fresh Prince.” His TV credits included “Grey’s Anatomy,” ‘‘NYPD Blue” and “Dallas,” and among his many films were “Fletch,” ‘‘Nightflyers” and “8 Million Ways to Die.”

Chinese carrier ends test cruise BEIJING — China’s first aircraft carrier has successfully completed sea trials in the South China Sea, state media reported. The Liaoning returned to port Wednesday after a

37-day voyage, the official Xinhua News Agency said. Citing an unnamed naval source, Xinhua said the aircraft carrier tested its combat system and conducted a formation practice and “attained the anticipated objectives.” “All tests and training programs went well as scheduled,” it said. Aircraft, naval vessels and submarines also participated in the Liaoning’s tests. Early in the Liaoning’s trial run one of the Chinese ships accompanying it was involved in a near collision with a U.S. Navy ship, which a Chinese media report said was down to the U.S. ship getting too close to the Liaoning. It marked the two countries’ most serious sea confrontation in years. The U.S. Pacific Fleet said the USS Cowpens had to maneuver to avoid a collision on Dec. 5. The Chinese defense ministry later confirmed the incident but gave few details. It said a Chinese naval ship conducting normal patrols had encountered a U.S. military vessel and handled the situation according to operating procedures. The Liaoning was bought from Ukraine more than a decade ago and extensively refurbished before entering service last year.

System failure State legislators have a duty to either fix or repeal a new voter registration requirement that could keep thousands of eligible Kansas voters from casting their ballots.


n Associated Press interview with Kansas Secretary of Revenue Nick Jordan earlier this week helps clarify — but offers no solution to — the problems plaguing the state’s voter registration system. The most important point in the story is Jordan’s acknowledgement that, because of uncertainties about the federal Real ID Act, his department has no firm plans to start issuing driver’s licenses that document the licensees’ citizenship status. That means the process Kansas legislators were counting on when they approved a proof-of-citizenship provision for voter registration has broken down and may be beyond repair. Jordan confirmed that he told legislators before they approved the proof-ofcitizenship requirements in 2011 that his office could collect citizenship information when Kansans renewed their driver’s licenses and forward that information to the Secretary of State to provide what was portrayed as a “seamless” process. Jordan said he made that promise based on his belief that the federal Real ID Act would require the collection of that data anyway so it wouldn’t present a big problem to forward it to another state agency. However, since that time, Jordan said, the federal government has waffled on its enforcement of the Real ID Act, which was intended as an anti-terrorism measure. Until the federal government clarifies its policy on Real ID, Jordan said, there was no reason for his department to collect information for special IDs that can be used to enter federal buildings or board commercial airplanes. That’s reasonable — except for the fact that Kansas legislators were counting on that system to make the proof-ofcitizenship requirement for voter registration feasible. Thousands of Kansans are registering to vote when they renew or receive their first Kansas drivers licenses, but if they do not follow up separately and provide proof of citizenship, their registrations won’t be valid. More than 19,000 prospective Kansas voters have had their registrations placed on hold awaiting proof-of-citizenship information. A large percentage of those registrations apparently were initiated by people getting their driver’s licenses. Kobach announced later this week that his office would use Kansas birth certificate records to help reduce the number of registrations on hold, but that will do nothing to help people who were born in another state. There could be no better proof that the “seamless” system that was proposed by Jordan and Secretary of State Kris Kobach doesn’t — and never did — exist. Allowing the law to continue in its current form could be interpreted as a willful attempt to deny thousands of qualified Kansas voters the right to cast their ballots. Based on the fact that Kobach testified in December that his office had found the names of only 20 noncitizens among about 1.7 million registered Kansas voters, many observers still question the need for this law. But even if legislators disagree with that opinion, the intent of the 2011 legislation clearly has been subverted. Legislators now have a duty to see that the law is either fixed or repealed.

WWII an antidote to U.S. pessimism WASHINGTON — For an optimistic country, 2013 was a heck of a downbeat year, perhaps most of all for the nation’s chief executive. The entire top half of the Dec. 15 Outlook section cover in the Washington Post carried the bleak review: “President Obama, you had the worst year in Washington.” Who would disagree? But Obama certainly had competition in the worst-year department, from the poisonously divided Congress to investment-shy business executives to a public so demoralized by wars in Iraq and Afghanistan that it balked at the use of force even to punish chemical weapons attacks by Syria. To many Americans, this was a year when the nation’s declining global power perhaps seemed a reverse image of the confident, indomitable nation that, in the popular imagination, rolled to victory in World War II. “The Greatest Generation” felt like a relic not just of another century but of another nation. But let’s be frank at yearend: This sort of relentless pessimism is destructive and, what’s more important, it’s inaccurate. We in the media pride ourselves on purveying bad news, so it’s easy for our readers to overlook the abiding reality that America is generally at peace and, relative to most of the world, wildly prosperous. In our national funk, we paint the present in darker colors than warranted, and the past in brighter hues.

David Ignatius

One way to position the country more accurately is to look back at the time of triumph in World War II, when our modern myths were created, and unpack what really happened.” One way to position the country more accurately is to look back at the time of triumph in World War II, when our modern myths were created, and unpack what really happened. That’s possible thanks to an extraordinary work of history completed this year by my colleague Rick Atkinson. His “Liberation Trilogy” revises many of the things you thought you knew about the war in Europe — and teaches the greatest lesson of all for the present, which is the need for patience and perseverance against obstacles. As Atkinson tells the story, drawing on letters, diaries and other vivid personal accounts, World War II was a chain of often disastrous mistakes redeemed by the

fact that America and its allies just kept going, literally climbing over the bodies of the dead. Through the war, amphibious landings were almost always botched, parachute landings almost never hit targets, and Allied bombers again and again mistakenly pummeled their own troops. American generals, from Supreme Commander Dwight D. Eisenhower on down, often made terrible errors that cost thousands of lives unnecessarily. Yet the nation persisted through sheer momentum and force of will. In those days, the public was shielded from the disheartening news of disaster by military censorship and the discretion of journalists who passionately wanted to tell the truth but also hoped to see their country prevail. The greatest of those war correspondents, Ernie Pyle, wrote about the “long thin line of personal anguish” of war, after searching the effects of the dead at the highwater line on Omaha Beach the day after D-Day. Atkinson describes the repeated errors of the North African campaign in his brilliant first volume, “An Army at Dawn,” which won the Pulitzer Prize in 2003. It recounts the chain of error symbolized by the catastrophic reversals at Kasserine Pass. “The brave and the virtuous appear throughout the North African campaign, to be sure, but so do the cowardly, the venal and the foolish. ... It

was a time of cunning and miscalculation, of sacrifice and self-indulgence, of ambiguity, love, malice and mass murder.” The ragged road to victory continued into Sicily and Italy, described in Atkinson’s second volume, “The Day of Battle.” The Allies’ ultimate success buried the nightmarish fiascos of that campaign, from the error-plagued landings at Salerno and Anzio to the needless waste of young lives at the Rapido River and Monte Cassino. Even on the eve of the war’s greatest triumph, the D-Day landings in Normandy, Brig. Gen. Norman D. Cota, who would be the senior officer on Omaha Beach, warned his soldiers: “You’re going to find confusion. The landing craft aren’t going in on schedule and people are going to be landed in the wrong place. Some won’t be landed at all. ... We must improvise, carry on, not lose our heads.” Every disaster he foretold came true, yet the onslaught succeeded, as Atkinson narrates in his final volume, “The Guns at Last Light.” Presidents, like generals, make mistakes. Some of them have ruinous consequences. But the real lesson of Atkinson’s story is that the only unforgivable mistake is to despair and give up. There was too much of that attitude in America in 2013, among leaders and citizens alike. Here’s to a new year. — David Ignatius is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.

Education reform a complex challenge By Gene Budig and Alan Heaps

Every few weeks, we read stories about the failure of our schools and colleges. They point to our poor international rankings, low tests scores and graduation rates, high tuition and the problems businesses have in finding skilled employees. The stories are accurate: In a world where education is critical to personal, professional and civic success, too few of our students are receiving the education they need and deserve. The stories also reflect public opinion: According to a recent poll by the Pew Research Group, two-thirds of the public say that our education system needs to be completely rebuilt or that it requires major changes. Unfortunately, many of these stories fall short in two important respects. One, they fail to mention many schools and colleges are doing great work — run by great educators producing great students. A case in point: Our colleges and universities are the envy of the rest of the world. In 2012, more than 800,000 foreign students were registered in our higher education institutions, a 7 percent increase over 2011. Why is it impor-

tant to point to examples of this kind? Because it shows that we have the models upon which to base real school re- Budig form. Two, they too seldom delve into the complexity of the problems or the kinds of commitment required to remedy Heaps the situation. And without these added components, we fall into the blame game: Our schools’ problems would be solved if only teachers or students or parents or school administrators would try harder, be smarter or be less selfish. So let’s broaden the conversation. Let’s spend a few minutes describing parts of the educational landscape.

The sheer size of the system makes movement a daunting process. In K-12, we have 132,000 schools, 55 million students and 3.2 million teachers. In higher education, we have 7,000 colleges

and universities, 29 million students, and 1.7 million instructional staff.

The decision-making process is byzantine, seemingly created to create barriers to change. In most countries, policy is made by a central authority. Here, school policies are made by a wide array of actors, all with their own ideas and agendas: federal, state and local governments; public and private schools/universities; unions; think tanks and foundations; book publishers and test makers; and student and parent groups.

There is a lack of certainty about what we want our students to know and how to teach them, particularly in today’s constantly changing world. Reasonable people disagree about such issues as the balance among subject areas and best teaching methods. To further complicate the matter, changes in political and educational leadership make for constantly shifting aims and targets.

Schools do not stand apart from the rest of society. The problems of the whole are problems of the parts. For example, issues of poverty, immigration, language and discipline all play significant roles in the dailylives of our schools.

These hurdles are important to acknowledge, not as excuses for lack of progress, but because they point to important directions for real — long lasting and widespread — school reform. More specifically, they highlight three principles, all of which are currently missing from our education debates. One, the nation needs a reform plan developed and supported by a broad coalition of practicing educators and others. Two, the nation needs to develop and emphasize long-term rather than short-term success. Three, the nation needs to dedicate the resources to make the plan a reality. Unfortunately, much of our current discussion about school reform is reminiscent of Chicken Little: people running around saying that “the sky is falling.” It is New Year’s, a time for resolutions. Let’s hope that in 2014 and beyond, we resolve to reform our schools and give all out students the education they need and deserve. — Gene A. Budig is past president/chancellor of three major state universities, including Kansas University, and of Major League Baseball’s American League. Alan Heaps is a former vice president of the College Board in New York City.

Gardner returns to start for KU women


Big patience Transfer Mickelson using year to learn

By Matt Tait

team get to where we want to be, we could use all the talent we could get.” Dineen said the decision was a no-brainer, and he gave the KU coaches his blessing on the spot. After they hung up, the Free State senior who was named the Kansas Gatorade Player of the Year began to think about what had just happened. “It showed how much they want me, which means a lot,”

After a one-game absence from the starting lineup, Kansas University junior forward Chelsea Gardner is back on track to hear her name called during introductions at 7 tonight, when the KU women’s basketball team opens Big 12 play against West Virginia. KU coach Bonnie Henrickson said the decision to start freshman Caelynn ManningAllen over Gardner during Sunday’s victory over SECOND Yale was a one-time SEASON disciplinary OPENER move and that Gardner Who: West would start Virginia (11-1) against the vs. Kansas M o u n t a i n - (7-5) eers. “ C h o i c e s When: 7 have con- tonight sequences,” Where: Allen Henrickson Fieldhouse said earlier TV: Metro this week (WOW! chs. when asked 37, 226) about Gardner’s status. “But it’s in the past. It’s nothing major, and I thought she gave better effort, and I thought we went to her (when she was in the game).” Gardner’s role as a temporary bench player did not have a negative impact on her ability to be a factor in the game. She still played 31 minutes and recorded another double-double of 26 points and 10 rebounds on 9-of-12 shooting. She also drained eight of 11 free-throw attempts and finished with just two fouls. Gardner said the seat on the bench changed her perspective and forced her to focus. “It was just something where, when I get in the game, I needed to be ready at all times and be ready when my name was called,” she said. Although Manning-Allen’s final line included lots of ones and zeroes, Henrickson said she was pleased with the nine minutes Manning-Allen gave the Jayhawks in Gardner’s place. “I think she could kind of sense a couple days out that it was gonna happen,” Henrickson said of the temporary promotion for Manning-Allen. “And she started putting herself in there with the first group in practice. I thought she made the most of her minutes, so that was impressive.” The beginning of Big 12 play brings with it the Jayhawks’ second season. Although Kansas (7-5) gets the bonus of opening the conference portion of its schedule at home, that’s about where the good news stops and the hard work begins.

Patience has paid off for outdoors enthusiast Hunter Mickelson on hunting and fishing excursions in his home state of Arkansas. It’s a virtue that has also translated well into his redshirt season as a basketball transfer at Kansas University. “You kind of wait and wait and hang back and wait and show everybody what you can do next year,” the 6-foot10, 245-pound former Arkansas center said of practicing daily but having to sit out games for one season in accordance with NCAA transfer rules. “It’s more mental than anything,” he added of the red-shirt process. “You just know it’s not your time yet. You have to sit and take everything in and kind of learn and support everybody at the same time.” He hopes to strike during the 2014-15 season and directly contribute to winning games in what will be his junior campaign. For now, he’s content to battle KU’s rotation big men at practice and, in the process, help them get better. “One thing he does that really helps our other big guys right now is he is a terrific shot-blocker,” said KU assistant coach Norm Roberts, who works with the big men at practice. “There are no easy baskets with him. “He is one of those quiet tough guys,” Roberts added of Mickelson, who set Arkansas’ all-time freshman Nick Krug/Journal-World Photo shot block record (72) two seasons ago. “He gives Joel CENTER HUNTER MICKELSON PULLS DOWN A REBOUND in a scrimmage during a Kansas University basketball camp session on June 19, 2013, at Horejsi Center.

Firebird Dineen gives recruit blessing By Matt Tait

Joe Dineen was asked by Kansas’ football coaches how he felt about KU bringing in another safety

In the typically cut-throat world of college football recruiting, where coaches often hand out more scholarship offers than they have to give and occasionally pull them at the last minute, Kansas University recently made a gesture that is almost unheard-of with one of its prospects in the Class of 2014. With junior-college safety Anthony Smithson suddenly

coming available after his ties to Utah broke down, KU coach Charlie Weis and the Jayhawks acted quickly to get involved with the 5-foot11, 185-pound defensive back from Hartnell College in California. Smithson was interested immediately, but there was one small problem: The Jayhawks already had a commitment from Free State High safety Joe Dineen and had told him they planned to take only one player at his position.

That’s when Weis and defensive coordinator Clint Bowen made a phone call that further cemented Dineen’s belief that he made the right choice when committing to Kansas. “Coach Bowen called me, and he just pretty much said, ‘There’s a juco safety that’s pretty good, and we think he can help us, and we wanted to make sure it’d be OK with you if we offered him,’” Dineen recalled. “I mean, I said yeah. If he can help the

Chiefs’ Bowe cleared to play; Fisher hurts groin KANSAS CITY, MO. (AP) — Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe was cleared to play in Saturday’s wildcard playoff game against Indianapolis after sustaining a concussion, though the status of linebacker Tamba Hali and right tackle Eric Fisher remains uncertain. Fisher hurt his groin near the end of Tuesday’s practice, while Hali has been dealing with some swell-

ing in his knee. Neither of them participated fully in Wednesday’s workout. Bowe sustained his concussion in a loss to the Colts two weeks ago at Arrowhead Stadium. He was hit in the neck area late in the game by LaRon Landry, and even though he finished the game and even attended a practice the next week, Bowe said he never quite felt right. He was diagnosed with a

concussion and sat out last week’s overtime loss at San Diego, when the Chiefs — assured of their playoff seed — chose to rest many of their starters. “I’m fine, you know. Just had a little minor headache,”

Bowe said Wednesday. “I didn’t feel as bad as some guys felt. I just felt tired. So I got some rest and I’m ready to go.” Bowe is second on the team behind running back Jamaal Charles with 57 catches for 673 yards and five touchdowns this season. “I’m just ready to go,” he said. “Big-time players want to make big-time plays in big-time games. These are

the games you have to show up. Everything on the line.” While the Chiefs had not yet ruled out Fisher for Saturday’s game, it appeared Donald Stephenson was preparing to start for the seventh time this season. Stephenson made three starts while Fisher was dealing with a shoulder injury, and has started the last four games at right tackle for ailing Branden Albert.

James Franklin returned the phone call. No surprise. Franklin had grown up locally in the Philadelphia area, had gone to Neshaminy High, was happy to talk about the resurrection project he had undertaken at Vanderbilt. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everything about the job, about the program, about how football was perceived at Vanderbilt needed to be changed,â&#x20AC;? Franklin said over the phone. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I realized that.â&#x20AC;? The timing of that phone call was interesting. It was just over two years ago, the week before Christmas, the last time the head coaching job at Penn State was open. Franklin wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to talk about that, but he understood the story would have that context. He had zero problem with it. If he was trending hot then, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the flavor of the month now, after two more winning seasons at Vandy. Maybe too hot for Penn State. Texas has talked to him, and at least one NFL team reportedly is interested, if weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still counting Cleveland as an NFL job. Is Franklin the guy Penn State should go all-in for? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still a risk. Remember when Gary Barnett did the seemingly impossible at Northwestern, turning a perennial loser into a winner? Then Barnett went to Colorado and fizzled. There are no automatics. Franklin is a sizzle guy. Hiring him would get Penn State into the houses of plenty of recruits. Last week, CBS Sports quoted an anonymous Atlantic Coast Conference coach: â&#x20AC;&#x153;If James Franklin ends up at Penn State, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be bad for us. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d kill it in recruiting around here.â&#x20AC;? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why Franklin belongs high on the list. Another guy who should up there: Greg Roman of the 49ers. Local ties, grew up in Ventnor, Pa., graduated from Holy Spirit. Roman didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hide his interest in the job the last time it was open and was on Penn Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s short list. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also on NFL interest lists, so it remains to be seen whether Penn State could get him this time. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s throw some wild cards out there. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d call Mack Brown. (Seriously. Today.) He won big games, is a master at running a program, kills it in houses, and still has gas in the tank at age 62. Will any of them pause given that Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien left after two seasons, and complained about non-football issues? They shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t if they understand the job entails dealing with nonfootball issues. Being the football coach at Penn State University post-Sandusky is a tough job. But it starts with being a great football coach. Penn State had better get that part right. The school also needs to do it quickly. The Houston Texans had that right as they went after Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien. Speed matters in this game, too.

THE TORONTO MAPLE LEAFS AND DETROIT RED WINGS face off during the Winter Classic on Wednesday at Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor, Mich.

Leafs, Wings set hockey attendance record ANN ARBOR, MICH. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A lot of winter. Very little classic hockey. Tyler Bozak scored the winning shootout goal, and Jonathan Bernier made two saves in the heart-pounding final moments, lifting the Toronto Maple Leafs to a 3-2 victory over Detroit at the snowy Winter Classic in front of the largest crowd to watch a hockey game. The announced attendance Wednesday of 105,591 surpassed the 104,173 who saw Michigan and Michigan State skate in the same football stadium known as the Big House in 2010. The game began with temperatures in the low teens and steady snow that didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop on a windy afternoon, leading to the sixth Winter Classic being much more of an event than a game. It was, though, a closely contested spectacle. Detroit captain Henrik Zetterberg appeared to have a good chance in overtime with the puck in the Maple Leafsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; end and defenseman Cody Franson on his left side. The horn, however, sounded to stop play at the 2:30 mark of the extra period so that both teams played into a 10 mph wind for an equal amount of time. The game also was halted midway through the third period so that the teams could switch sides. In the shootout, skaters for both teams attempted shots with the wind in their face toward the same net â&#x20AC;&#x201D; or end zone. The game-time temperature was 13 degrees with a wind chill of zero. The average temperature of the previous five Winter Classics was 39 degrees, and the average attendance was 53,045. A slew of skaters with shovels cleared significant amounts of snow during early stoppages in play, but players still had a tough time pushing the puck through piles of snow. The struggling yet storied franchises did their best to put on a show in the leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual showcase in awful conditions.


Lovie Smith to coach Bucs TAMPA, FLA. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A person familiar with the negotiations says former Chicago Bears coach Lovie Smith has reached an agreement to coach the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Speaking to the Associated Press on Wednesday night on the condition of anonymity because an official announcement hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been made, the person also says former Minnesota Vikings coach Leslie Frazier will be the Buccaneersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; defensive coordinator. The 55-year-old Smith will replace Greg Schiano, fired Monday after going 4-12 this season and 11-21 in two years with the team. Frazier also was fired Monday. Smith was 81-63 in nine seasons with Chicago, leading the 2006 team to the Super Bowl â&#x20AC;&#x201D; where the Bears lost Indianapolis. He was fired a year ago after the Bears finished 10-6 and missed the playoffs for the fifth time in six seasons. Smith was Tampa Bayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s linebackers coach under Tony Dungy from 1996-2000, then spent three seasons as the St. Louis Ramsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; defensive coordinator on Mike Martzâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s staff.


OSU guard Clark arrested EDMOND, OKLA. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Oklahoma State basketball player Stevie Clark was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of marijuana possession. Edmond police spokeswoman Jennifer Monroe says Clark was a passenger in a vehicle that was pulled over for a seatbelt violation. Police discovered marijuana in the vehicle and arrested Clark and the driver on possession of marijuana complaints. Clark, a freshman backup point guard, is averaging 7.0 points for the No. 6 Cowboys. Oklahoma State opens Big 12 Conference play Saturday at Kansas State.


Astros add reliever Crain HOUSTON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; All-Star free-agent reliever Jesse Crain has agreed to a one-year deal with the Houston Astros. Financial terms were not released. Crain made the All-Star team last season with a 0.74 ERA in 37 appearances for the White Sox. He had a streak of 29 straight appearances without allowing a run from April 17 to June 22. Crain was traded to Tampa Bay on July 29, but didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t appear in a game for the Rays because of a right shoulder strain.


Photographer dies after game ATLANTA â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Dave Martin, a longtime Associated Press photographer based in Montgomery, Ala., died after collapsing on the Georgia Dome field after the Chick-fil-A Bowl on Tuesday night. Martin, 59, ran onto the field immediately following Texas A&Mâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 52-48 win over Duke and took photos of Aggies coach Kevin Sumlin being doused with a water bucket by his players. Martin continued to take celebration shots before collapsing. Martin suffered an apparent heart attack and was administered CPR on the field, according to a statement from the Georgia Dome. He was placed on a stretcher and taken to Emory Hospital Midtown, where he died early Wednesday morning, the statement said.


Murray exits early in Qatar DOHA, QATAR â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Third-seeded Andy Murray, playing in his first tournament since back surgery in late September, was upset by Florian Mayer of Germany, 3-6, 6-4, 6-2, in the second round of the Qatar Open on Wednesday. Top-ranked Rafael Nadal also was taken to three sets but emerged with a 6-3, 6-7 (3), 6-3 win over Tobias Kamke of Germany, while second-seeded David Ferrer joined Murray in making an early exit after a 6-4, 7-5 loss to Daniel Brands of Germany. Murray was leading 6-3, 3-0 when the 40thranked Mayer started to play more aggressively, going for winners on nearly every shot.

Aztecs hold off CSU FORT COLLINS, COLO. (AP) — Xavier Thames scored 23 points to help No. 21 San Diego State fend off Colorado State, 71-61, on Wednesday night for its 10th straight win. Winston Shepard scored 17 points and Josh Davis had seven points and 15 rebounds for the Aztecs (11-1, 1-0 Mountain West), who won their seventh straight conference opener in tying the second-best 12-game start in school history. The Aztecs dominated Colorado State (9-5, 0-1) in the paint, outscoring the Rams 40-16 from up close and out-shooting them from the field 48.2 percent to 38.5. Daniel Bejarano led Colorado State with 22 points while J.J. Avila had 15 points and Jon Octeus 10. Trailing by nine points at halftime, the Rams narrowed the deficit to four

(Embiid) and Tarik (Black) and all those guys fits inside. You can’t get an easy shot over him because he’s so long and has great timing to block shots.” Mickelson, who plays on the scout team at practice, guards 7-foot freshman sensation Embiid “about every day.” “As far as inside (play) goes, you’ve got to be ready for anything. He’s really talented,” Mickelson said of the Cameroon native. “He has tons of talent. He’s a really good player, especially for as young as he is.” Mickelson said the challenge in guarding 6-9, 260-pound former Memphis player Black is trying “to keep him out of the lane, keep him off the block. He’s a pretty big guy, pretty tough, so that’s hard to do sometimes.” Another rotation big is Jamari Traylor, a 6-8, 220-pound third-year sophomore from Chicago. “Jamari is a big energy guy. He’s pretty strong, too, kind of the same thing with him and Tarik,” Mickelson said. “You’ve got to keep him off the block. He’s got quick moves, and I’ve got to stay down and not go for any fakes.” Perry Ellis, 6-8, 220-pound sophomore from Wichita, also is grouped with the bigs. “You have to guard everything with him. He can shoot the ball from the outside as well as pretty good post moves inside,” Mickelson said. Like Mickelson, 6-10, 240-pound red-shirt fresh-

He is coming on,” Mickelson said. “He can get down there and make some good moves and get his body into me.” While Mickelson is not afraid of contact, he also is known as a player who can drift outside and hit a feathery jumper. “Hunter is a pretty good pick-and-pop guy from 15-feet, where he can really shoot,” Roberts said. “He runs the floor well. When he is with our scout team, you put him and Justin (Wesley, senior forward) together along with Landen Lucas ... at times when we are going Red (scout) team vs. Blue (rotation players) team, it’s a pretty strong front line going against our guys every day.” “When I’m on the scout team, I get to shoot a little

Coach put me in position to make plays, and I had guys who helped me.” One thing that likely made the decision to sign off on Smithson easy for Dineen is the versatility Dineen figures to bring to the KU program. Although he played quarterback and defensive back for the Firebirds this season, it’s possible a move to

“The returners started talking about it right away,” Henrickson said. “‘Best defense in the league. Pressure on the ball and pressure in the passing lanes.’ We’ve been fortunate that our practice guys are committed, and they’re here over break, and they have just created that chaos. We’re gonna have to be comfortable in chaos because they’re just so disruptive.

Spartans survive; Baylor falls The Associated Press

Rose Bowl No. 4 Michigan St. 24, No. 5 Stanford 20 PASADENA, CALIF. — When Kyler Elsworth soared over the pile to deliver the final hit of Michigan State’s season, the storybook ending came with a moral. After so many years outside the spotlight, the Spartans are in nobody’s shadow anymore. And for the first time in 26 years, they’re Rose Bowl champions. Connor Cook passed for a career-high 332 yards and hit Tony Lippett with a tiebreaking 25-yard touchdown pass early in the fourth quarter, leading No. 4 Michigan State to a 24-20 victory over No. 5 Stanford on Wednesday night in the 100th Rose Bowl. Michigan State’s FBSbest defense capped a dominant season with one more old-school performance befitting the centennial celebration of the Granddaddy of Them All. The Spartans (13-1) yielded just 159 yards in the final three quarters, and they closed it out by stopping Stanford fullback Ryan Hewitt on fourthand-one near midfield with 1:46 to play. Elsworth, the fill-in starter for suspended senior linebacker Max Bullough, hurdled the pile and flew into Michigan State lore with a spectacular head-on tackle. “When I saw their offensive linemen’s stance, I knew the way to make a play was to go over the top,” said Elsworth, the game’s defensive MVP. “I was hoping they would run a play like they did on their fourth down. It’s a one-in-a-lifetime play. We proved we could play on the big stage on the national level.” Cook also threw a TD pass to Trevon Pendleton, and Jeremy Langford rushed for 84 yards and a score as the Big Ten champion Spartans overcame their first doubledigit deficit of the entire season. Michigan State finished with 10 straight wins, holding off the Pac12 champion Cardinal (113) for the school’s first Rose Bowl victory since 1988. “It’s a special time for all Spartans, and we came here in force,” coach Mark Dantonio said. “I’m very happy for our football team, the resilience we showed all season long.” The Spartans have long labored behind Michigan, Ohio State and even Wisconsin among the Midwest’s top programs, but Dantonio’s seven-year rebuilding project in East Lansing has put them on top of the Midwest this season with a perfect run through conference play. Tyler Gaffney ran for 91 yards and an early TD for Stanford, and linebacker Kevin Anderson returned an interception 40 yards for a score late in the first half. But the Cardinal couldn’t follow up last season’s success in Pasadena with back-to-back Rose Bowl wins, managing just three points from their offense after the first quarter. And Gaffney could only watch as Hewitt was stopped on Stanford’s final play. “You have to give it to Michigan State for stuffing that,” said Gaffney, who managed just 24 yards after the first quarter. “Everybody in the building knew exactly what was coming. A run was coming up the middle, and it was a test of wills, and they got the better of us.” Cook led in his own inimitable fashion, making incredible plays and huge mistakes along the way. Along with his costly interception to Anderson, he also threw two passes that went through the

MICHIGAN STATE PLAYERS AND COACHES CELEBRATE A 24-20 VICTORY over Stanford in the Rose Bowl on Wednesday in Pasadena, Calif. hands of Cardinal defenders, and an interception in the third quarter was wiped out by a defensive holding call. But when the Spartans needed big plays in the second half, Cook repeatedly delivered, finishing 22 for 36. “When we got down, guys were always helping each other,” Cook said. “We’re such a balanced team.” A mere 112 years after the game considered the first Rose Bowl was played in a park elsewhere in Pasadena, Stanford and Michigan State engaged in an old-fashioned slugfest in the venerable stadium that will host the BCS title game Monday night. Michigan State fans dominated the Rose Bowl grounds and stands, with about 70 percent wearing green in the crowd of 95,173 — the game’s largest turnout since 1998. After Tournament of Roses Parade grand marshal Vin Scully flipped the coin, Stanford started with a 77-yard drive culminating in Gaffney’s 16yard TD run. A field goal put Stanford up 10-0 late in the first quarter, but the Spartans finally connected with a 13-play drive for Langford’s TD. Cook handed seven points to the Cardinal shortly before halftime. With Usua Amanam bearing down on him unblocked, Cook inexplicably threw a soft looping pass directly to Anderson, who returned his first career interception untouched for a score — the first defensive touchdown allowed by Michigan State all season.

Capital One

Gator Nebraska 24, No. 23 Georgia 19 JACKSONVILLE, FLA. — Tommy Armstrong Jr. connected with Quincy Enunwa for two touchdowns, including a 99-yarder in the third quarter, and Nebraska held on to beat Georgia. Playing in their 50th bowl, the Cornhuskers (94) ended a four-game losing streak against teams from the Southeastern Conference. The streak included a 45-31 loss to Georgia in the Capital One Bowl last season. The rematch was much different. Nebraska did a solid job against running back Todd Gurley, who ran for 125 yards and a touchdown last year. Gurley finished with 86 yards on the ground. Gurley was more effective in the passing game, catching seven passes for 97 yards and a score. His 25-yard scoring receptions on the first play of the fourth quarter cut Nebraska’s lead to 24-19. But the Huskers stopped Georgia (8-5) twice on fourth down in the closing minutes. Rantavious Wooten and Arthur Lynch dropped fourth-down passes that ended drives in the red zone. Georgia had a chance late. Wooten dropped a fourth-and-2 pass at the 10yard line with 4:42 remaining. Georgia got the ball back with 3:18 to play and

No. 8 South Carolina 34, No. 19 Wisconsin 24 ORLANDO, FLA. — Connor Shaw was responsible for five touchdowns, including three passing, and South Carolina outlasted Wisconsin. The senior was selected the game MVP after picking apart the Badgers’ defense, completing 22 of 25 passes for 312 yards. Shaw also had rushing and receiving scores. The game also turned out to be the final college contest for South Carolina star defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, who said afterward that he would forgo his senior season to enter the NFL draft. South Carolina (112) won its third straight bowl game to cap its third straight 11-win season. Bruce Ellington caught six passes for 140 yards and two touchdowns. The Badgers (9-4) lost their fourth straight bowl game, failing to capitalize on 100-yard rushing games from both Melvin Gordon and James White, and struggling after quarterback Joel Stave left in the third quarter with a shoulder injury. Backup Curt Phillips threw two interceptions. Wisconsin 0 14 3 7—24 South Carolina 7 6 7 14—34 First Quarter SC-Ellington 39 pass from Shaw (Fry kick), :41.

Outback No. 14 LSU 21, Iowa 14 TAMPA, FLA. — Jeremy Hill ran for 216 yards and two touchdowns, helping LSU and inexperienced quarterback Anthony Jennings hold off Iowa. Craig Loston’s fourthquarter interception stopped a potential tying drive, giving Hill a chance to put the game out of reach by carrying four times for 87 yards on a 92yard march that gave LSU (10-3) a 21-7 lead. Iowa (8-5) pulled within a touchdown after Jordan Cotton returned the ensuing kickoff to the Tigers 4. Jennings rushed for one touchdown, but the freshman threw for only 82 yards and was intercepted once and sacked four times while standing in for the injured Zach Mettenberger in his first college start. C.J. Beathard replaced Jake Rudock at quarterback for Iowa on the first play of the fourth quarter. His fourth-down interception stopped one promising drive, but he also tossed a 4-yard TD pass to Kevonte Martin-Manley that cut it 21-14 with 1:42 remaining. Safety John Lowdermilk set up Iowa’s other TD — Mark Weisman’s 2-yard run in the third quarter — with an interception and 71-yard return to the 1. Officials initially ruled Lowdermilk, who was untouched on the return, scored. But the TD was reversed when a replay review determined the Iowa defender dropped the ball before crossing the goal line. Iowa 0 0 7 7—14 LSU 7 7 0 7—21 First Quarter LSU-Jennings 2 run (Delahoussaye kick), 10:59. Second Quarter LSU-Hill 14 run (Delahoussaye kick), 7:23.

Heart Of Dallas North Texas 36, UNLV 14 DALLAS — Derek Thompson threw for 256 yards and two touchdowns, Brelan Chancellor scored twice, and North Texas dominated the second half to beat UNLV. Both of Chancellor’s touchdown runs came in the fourth quarter after he keyed the go-ahead scoring drive in the third with some nifty footwork on a first-down catch. He had 121 yards combined rushing and receiving. The Mean Green (9-4) were making their first postseason appearance since a 2004 New Orleans Bowl loss to Southern Miss and won a bowl for the first sice New Orleans in 2002. UNLV (7-6) drove 95 yards for a touchdown on its opening possession but didn’t score again until the Mean Green were up 28-7 in the fourth quarter.

‘The Assets’ is a liability for ABC The miniseries is back. Miniseries and short-seasoned series were among the best television of 2013; this included “Broadchurch,” “Top of the Lake” and “The Returned.” ‘‘Mob City” had it fans. “The Vikings” was fun -and it returns with 10 episodes in late February. ABC jumps into the limitedrun game with “The Assets” (9 p.m.), an eight-part series based on the real-life events of CIA counterintelligence officer Sandy Grimes (Jodie Whittaker), as the spy agency comes to grips with the damage done by one of the most notorious traitors in U.S. history, Aldrich Ames (Paul Rhys). The “assets” referred to in the show’s title are the real human beings and CIA informants inside the USSR who were compromised and killed as a result of Ames’ treachery. Viewers are asked to identify with Grimes as she attempts to ferret out the mole in her midst. It doesn’t help that Whittaker (”Broadchurch”) is asked to play her as an emotional cypher. At the office, she’s all work; at home, she’s rather blank when she’s not testy and eager to get back to work. Perhaps Grimes’ bland characterization is a deliberate effort to differentiate her personality from the dynamic mood swings of Claire Danes’ Carrie on “Homeland,” or the tempestuous double-dealing of the agents on “The Americans.” And “The Assets” has differentiated itself from those shows in another way: They are good. “The Assets” is frequently dull. O The new eight-episode series “Cold River Cash” (9 p.m., Animal Planet) follows three teams of Maine fisherman as they work a very short season to catch the tiny, elusive and lucrative elver eel. O Fitness professionals Katrina Hodgson and Karena Dawn discuss their workout revolution, on the new series/infomercial “Toned Up” (9:30 p.m., Bravo). O Exhibitionists put themselves in needless danger on the new series “Do or Die” (9 p.m., National Geographic). How about “don’t.”

Tonight’s other highlights O Contestants design for a charity event on “Project Runway All Stars” (8 p.m., Lifetime). O “Mysteries at the Museum” (8 p.m., Travel) returns. O Moriarty consults on “Elementary” (9 p.m., CBS). OStandup comic Nick Swardson appears on the fourth season premiere of “Ridiculousness” (9 p.m., MTV).

NFL CUTS By Milton Bonney


readers aren’t big fans of that alternative, whether male or female. If both partners agree that affairs are perfectly fine within their marriage, we have no objection. Or if one partner chooses to overlook the other’s philandering, the couple might stay together, although they are not necessarily happy. In most cases, however, affairs are sneaky betrayals full of lies, and one partner loses out on the intimacy and trust that keep a marriage solid. The partner who cheats may believe the marriage is sufficiently happy, but our mail says otherwise.

Dear Annie: I’ve been married to my lovely wife for nine years, and to this day, I can’t get past her gambling habit. It is causing major problems in our marriage. Once or twice a week when she gets that itch to head to the casino, she loses all the money she earns in our account and then accumulates bank fees and overdraft charges. I’m fed up with her habit and have mentioned that this must stop. She has promised me many times that she will quit, but she hasn’t been successful. Once I let her go to the casino and told her to spend only a certain amount, and she ended up gambling away $1,000, which she never replaced. I was upset and didn’t speak to her for a few days. I will be deploying overseas soon, and I’m afraid to leave her to handle our financial af-

appy New Year, Lawrence! The start of a fresh new year is so revitalizing, don’t you agree? It’s no wonder so many often turn to New Year’s resolutions to really get things going. Let’s see, there’s usually something about sweets mentioned (like not eating them), and maybe an intent to change bad habits, but it seems like exercise always makes the list (Every. Single. Year. Sheesh!). To say it can be difficult to make exercise a daily/weekly/fill-in-the-blank habit is an understatement, but there are certainly a few places around town that make this lifestyle change a little easier on us. One of these places is The Summit. The Summit is located on the corner of Ninth and New Hampshire streets, and it’s fully prepped to make New Year’s resolutions come true. This gym offers almost everything: workout machines, free weights, workout classes, personal training sessions, a rock-climbing wall, infrared saunas and even massage therapy. Moreover, there’s free parking in the attached parking garage (south of the building) so that you have no troubles or setbacks with downtown street parking. I’ve been a member of this gym for a little over a year now, and there are some notable qualities that set this gym apart from others I’ve experienced. The open floor plan makes the gym easy to get around and allows you to jump from one machine to another. With almost all of the equipment located on the main floor, you can easily see every machine from any point in the gym. The space is flooded with natural eastern light, which is also quite appealing. The staff members even open the floor-to-ceiling windows during the warmer months to allow fresh air to circulate (so that Stinky McStinkerson next to you doesn’t clog up your airways). The full-service locker rooms, located in the basement, are a huge plus, too. They’re nicer than my own home

bathroom! And if you’ve forgotten any necessities you may need during your post-workout cleanup, they are prepared with things like a razor, shampoo and Q-tips. Is that fullservice or what? I’m no workout buff, but I know a friendly gym when I see it. If you’re interested in championing your New Year’s workout resolutions this year, check out The Summit’s membership options. Not ready to commit? They offer a free day pass on their website so that all can experience the facilities before taking the plunge. So let’s hit the gym! And maybe we can actually tackle one of our resolutions this year. — Jessica Pauly, aka Mrs. Mass., gives her thoughts on shopping, urban living and what’s new in Lawrence in CheckOut weekly and on her blog,

itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all downhill from here


ottinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s was the second hardware store we had visited that day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wanna walk in the snow!â&#x20AC;? the Kid insisted as we got out of the car, so we wandered off the well-shoveled path into the deeper stuff. Painstakingly, we made it about 20 yards before I realized that I had left my wallet in the car. I crammed my jaw shut to avoid an expletive, as we retrieved the wallet and retraced our slow steps in the biting wind. As we stepped inside, a young man stepped out of an aisle to greet us. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think he got out a word before I desperately asked, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sleds?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oh yeah,â&#x20AC;? he smiled. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got toboggans over here, and I think we have some saucers. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll go look.â&#x20AC;? The Kid surveyed the aisle end that contained the toboggans. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want that one,â&#x20AC;? he pointed to a tie-dyed plastic sled. The man came back with a big red saucer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have this one,â&#x20AC;? he held the saucer up high. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Or we have the real-deal, Radio Flyer, but ...â&#x20AC;? he hesitated, appraising the Kidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s age and size. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yeah, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d probably hurt himself on that,â&#x20AC;? I completed his thought. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s OK, I think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll take the toboggan.â&#x20AC;? I was so happy to find a sled â&#x20AC;&#x201D; any sled â&#x20AC;&#x201D; that, to tell you the truth, I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

even remember what we paid. Fifteen dollars, maybe? At any rate, it was money well spent. That evening, when Sweet Husband got off from work, we headed to Centennial Park at Ninth and Iowa streets, to try our new sled out. At almost 3 years old, this was the Kidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first real sledding trip. As I plunked him down on our toboggan between his dadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legs, I knew it was even odds â&#x20AC;&#x201D; either heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be thrilled or scarred for life. I pushed them off, and held my breath. About two seconds later, a screech of laughter echoed back up the hill as they coasted down toward the trees. When the ride ended, both Sweet Husband and the Kid ran back up the hill. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wanna go again!â&#x20AC;? the Kid shouted, as he bounced up and down. â&#x20AC;&#x153;OK, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my turn to go with you,â&#x20AC;? I beamed back at him. I sat on the back of the sled, and stared out over his head at the darkening sky. For a minute, I was a child again myself. Sweet Husband offered a last minute bit of advice, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lean the opposite way you think you should.â&#x20AC;? But I was too excited to pay attention. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One, two, THREE!â&#x20AC;? I shouted, as we pushed off. At this juncture, a public apology seems appropriate. To the couple with the

Jade Garden, 1410 Kasold Drive Skip the garlic chicken and ask for the “authentic” Chinese menu. With options like spicy hot pot pig’s feet ($14.95), chicken feet or intestines, loaded with chunks of Thai chile peppers, this isn’t a food adventure for the faint of heart. Ease your way into less familiar dishes by starting with duck noodle soup or dried pepper frog legs. Once you’ve gotten your sea legs, however, bite the bullet and order the pork blood and innards combo. Maybe it tastes like chicken?

LEARN TO COOK It’s not about becoming the next Bobby Flay, but it would be nice to limit takeout and pizza to once or twice a week. Not only can you control what goes into each meal when you cook, but it’s easier on the wallet to buy groceries once every couple of weeks. Does that not sound like a better quality of life?

The right outfit can boost your confidence while working out


ealth-related goals top the list of New Year’s resolutions every year. Unfortunately, goals like eating healthier and getting fit usually get pushed aside by the time Valentine’s Day candy hits the shelves. And while plenty of websites and apps help you set and track fitness goals, few offer guidance on what to wear. The gym is an intimidating place. Guys with Everest-sized biceps wearing muscle-revealing shirts can leave a newcomer more than a bit deflated. One way to boost your confidence and make exercise a regular habit is to make sure you dress to feel your best. So, before you head to the gym, make a trip to one of the excellent athletic stores in downtown Lawrence to pickup some new workout clothes that will leave you feeling confident before, and long after, you enter the gym.




Unless you already sport some highcaliber guns, leave the tank top on the shelf. Instead, opt for a loose-fitting, moisture-wicking T-shirt (polyester or polyester blend) in white, gray or navy. Fit is key here. You want it slim enough that you can see your progress, but not so too tight that your gut hangs out. Some people will suggest that you wear a sweatshirt or hoodie. And while there are some benefits to this like keeping your muscles warm, which can decrease the risk of injury, they can also leave you hot and sweaty — a feeling newcomers usually find less than desirable. Instead, leave the layering behind and simply add some warm-up jumping jacks and stretches to the start of your routine.

Bottoms can be a bit tricky depending on what your gym goals are on any given day. I recommend a couple pairs of versatile shorts that allow you to do any number of activities ranging from running and biking to lifting and stretching. Length, pockets and fabric are all important to consider when purchasing shorts. You don’t want retro basketball short shorts or ankle-hitting “shortpants.” Shorts should hit an inch or two above the knee and be fitted enough that they don’t wag when you walk. In the age of mp3 players, consider buying shorts with pockets (preferably zippered). I find it easier to pull a device out of a pocket than bothering with it in an arm-strap. Finally, choose an elastic-waist,

polyester blend short that won’t sag and will wick moisture away, leaving you cool and relaxed. SHOES

It’s crucial to invest in a pair of supportive, cushioned shoes. Always check with a qualified athletic shoe sales associate to find the best fit and feel to minimize injury. Shoes allow you a bit more personal expression. Embrace bold colors, but don’t get too matchy, otherwise you might draw some unwanted glares. Now you just need to hit the gym. Best of luck with your New Year’s resolutions! — Nicholas Cunigan is a Ph.D. candidate in early American history at Kansas University.

Ed Demasio Kelsey Ranjbar Age: 18 Hometown: Lawrence but currently living in Boston. Occupation: I’m a student at The Boston Conservatory for vocal performance. Dream job: Hopefully (singing) opera in a major city. What were you doing when scouted? Shopping! We just came out of Wild Man Vintage. Describe your style: I just wear whatever I think looks good. Other than that, I don’t really have a specific aesthetic. I just try to keep it classy. Fashion trends you love: I love skirts, tights and dresses! Fashion trends you hate: Showing too much midriff! Fashion influences: When I lived here in Lawrence, it would be what I would see around town, and I would steal things that I liked. I can’t really point to any specific pop culture that I’m trying to emulate. I just see things and I take the bits I like. What would you like to see more or less of in Lawrence? I would like to see downtown stay downtown. I keep hearing rumors of big businesses or large buildings that are going to take away the feeling of downtown. I don’t want to see that happen. I want local businesses and the art scene to stay nice. Whom do people say you look like? A few people have told me that I look exactly like Lady Gaga. What type of music do you like? It depends on my mood — a wide variety. I’ve been into punk lately but sometimes I feel like some Django Reinhardt, Sam Cook and, that’s right, classical music! Tell us a secret: Usually people are shocked when they hear that I don’t like cheesecake!

Dream job: I don’t really know. Nothing really stands out now. What were you doing when scouted? I was doing some shopping for family and friends. Describe your style: Well, I don’t always wear what I am wearing, but I’m big into the steampunk culture. It’s a combination of the Victorian era with the future. It’s very interesting! Fashion trends you love: Currently, no. That’s why I’m wearing what I’m wearing right now. I like a lot of the older clothing but I do like futuristic stuff like my goggles and this bandolier type of vest. But there’s not much in modern fashion that interests me. Fashion trends you hate: There’s nothing in particular that I really despise. I’m not big into fashion. Fashion influences: Books, movies and video games.

Whom do people say you look like? I believe that someone said that I look like Harry Potter once but I don’t think so. What type of music do you unwind to? Classic rock, electronica and steampunk.

history in a nutshell


â&#x20AC;&#x2122;m nuts about the holidays â&#x20AC;&#x153;Grandpa, will you open some pistachios for me and where do they come from?â&#x20AC;? Same answer; no and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know. Second grandson, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know, I know! They all come from trees.â&#x20AC;? They were correct. All nuts come from trees. Sorta. Nuts are a complicated issue. There are â&#x20AC;&#x153;true nutsâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;culinary nuts.â&#x20AC;? Botanically a â&#x20AC;&#x153;true nutâ&#x20AC;? is indehiscent (not opening at maturity). There are only two true nuts that we are familiar with: chestnut and hazelnut or filbert. All the rest are simply seeds that happen to have a hard shell. The tree comment was correct with an exception the common peanut. The peanut, the most common of all the culinary nuts, is a legume, also a seed, of the Fabaceae family, like a bean. These underground delights are also known as earthnuts, ground nuts, goober peas, monkey nuts, pygmy nuts and pig nuts. They are just called peanuts because ice cream covered with goobers would not sell well. The seeds and nuts we eat do have nutritional value. Research as to the reason varies, but the conclusion is the same. Opposing this, these tempting morsels are among the most common of food allergies.

Nuts are also made into spices. Nutmeg, being common, is a tree with edible seeds important for two spices: nutmeg and mace (not the spray). Common in India and the Caribbean, the world demand is some 10,000 tons each year. The chestnut popularized by â&#x20AC;&#x153;open fireâ&#x20AC;? is a true nut and is opened by the â&#x20AC;&#x153;roastingâ&#x20AC;? to expose the edible seed. They are also candied, steamed, grilled and boiled. Hazelnuts, also a true nut, are used in confectionery for strongly flavored cooking oils, praline, chocolate truffles, and products such as Nutella and Frangelico liqueur. So back to the old pistachio. Reference dates back to 6,000 B.C. with a singular mention in the Bible. The fruit and shell are beige but consumers expect them to be dyed red or green. Pistachios are of the Anacardiaceae family, as are cashews, mango, poison ivy and sumac. With that heritage, I may just give the whole bag of seeds to the grandkids. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Stan Ring is the Horticulture Program Assistant for K-State Research and Extension in Douglas County.

Mount a flat-screen tV


ith the right tools and fasteners, mounting a flat-screen television on a wall can be a snap. Step 1: Purchase a wall mount kit that is compatible with the television to be mounted. Read the instructions fully before proceeding. Step 2: Choose a spot on the wall to mount the television. Have two people hold the television in place and use painters tape or a pencil to mark the position of the bottom of the television screen on the wall. Ideally the center of the screen should be at eye level from the typical viewing position. Step 3: Use a stud finder to locate the adjacent wooden studs in the wall behind the selected area. Mark the stud locations with painters tape or a pencil. Step 4: Lay the television face down on a level, soft surface and attach the television mounting hardware to the back of the television. Step 5: Temporarily attach the wall mounting hardware to the back of the television. Measure the distance from

HANG TIME. With the right tools and fasteners, mounting a flat-screen television on a wall can be a snap.

the mounting hardware to the bottom of the television screen. Step 6: Position the wall mounting bracket on the wall so that at least half the screws, if not all the screws, line up

with the center of a wall stud. Use the mark on the wall indicating the screen location and the measurement of the mounting hardware on the back of the television to determine the mounting

height of the wall bracket. Use a level to confirm that the bracket is in the optimal position and mark the screw hole locations on the wall. Step 7: For screws that will not be driven into a stud, use toggle bolts or hollow wall anchors to secure them properly. Snaptoggles by Toggler are the best choice for securing the wall bracket onto drywall or plaster when studs cannot be reached. Snaptoggle fasteners are easy to install, and a single toggler can hold over 200 pounds. Step 8: Drill pilot holes for the mounting screws. Install the necessary wall anchors for any screw that does not hit a stud. Step 9: Mount the wall bracket securely to the wall. Step 10: Attach the television to the wall bracket. Step 11: Use surface mount cord minders to route the necessary cords to the back of the television. Keep the power cord a few inches away from the other cords to reduce interference. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Linda Cottin can be reached at
