of late Sunday night. The worst of it all seemed to be a few vehicles sliding off the roads, according to Lt. Randall Cheek, a Douglas County Sheriff’s Department spokesperson. “Most of those really weren’t due to the roads — they did a good job on the roads this weekend ahead of the storm,” Cheek said. “Most of the slide-offs we had were because of the drifting and low visibility.” Cheek said he did not know of any injuries that resulted from such incidents, and that anybody who required roadside vehicle assistance wasn’t left out in the cold for too long. But the weather did cause other nuisances. Cheek said on several occasions throughout the county, strong winds had blown open doors and set off alarms. A nursing supervisor at Lawrence Memorial Hospital said they had not treated any weather-related ailments such as hypothermia or frostbite as of Sunday night.

In 1993, Maurer started working with Willey and soon became a financial partner. Through a contractual agreement, Maurer became the owner last month. “Greg is a very wonderful guy,” Willey said. Maurer said he will keep the Willey name on the dealership and doesn’t expect much to change. “We got along well,” Maurer said of Willey. “It doesn’t seem like it has been 21 years,” he said. Willey said he has no definite retirement plans other than to “stay healthy

and be active.” He’s involved with his church, Family Promise, which helps homeless families, and Junior Achievement. He and his wife, Jan, have five daughters, who all live nearby, and six grandchildren. As far as the future of the car business, Willey said he expects the next few years will be “dynamite” because the economy is rebounding. “When we get more jobs and good stable incomes, people are going to be buying,” he said.

Kathryn was born in Gastonia, North Carolina in 1931. She was the fifth born of eight children in the Sams family. Kathryn’s two brothers, Ralph and Howard, served in the U.S. Navy during WWII. Her baby brother, Bobby, served in the U.S. Navy and Army during the Vietnam War. Sisters Ruby, Joy, Becky, and Marie worked and raised their families in North and South Carolina. Her mother and father were employed in the textile industry in southwestern North Carolina, later opening a small retail store in Gastonia. In her early twenties, Kathryn left North Carolina to find her fortune in Washington D.C. While working as a model in an elegant Washington D.C. department store, she met a dashing young U.S. Army Sergeant by the name of Leonard J. Zeller. She married Len on Valentine’s Day 1951 at the Fort Myer Chapel, Arlington, Virginia. Army life was a whirlwind. Shortly after the two were wed, Len was commissioned a Second Lieutenant and they transferred to Bavaria, West Germany. Len and Kathy enjoyed two assignments in West Germany, one in Arizona, and four in the Washington D.C. area. Len left Kathryn and their children alone to serve a year in South Korea and a year at war in South Vietnam. Those familiar with military life appreciate the demands and uncertainties Kathryn dealt with while keeping the household together and raising four beautiful children. They retired from the U.S. Army in 1976. Kathryn and Len arrived in Lawrence

to solving crimes generally,” Kaminska wrote in a memo about the ordinance. Other area cities using LeadsOnline include Olathe, Kansas City, Overland Park and Lenexa, according to the memo. Under the proposed ordinance, police would pay the estimated $9,600 annual subscription to the website. Pawnbrokers and precious metal dealers would be given passwords to upload data to the site on or before Tuesday of each week. The newly proposed ordinance includes a penalty for failure to comply — a misdemeanor offense, punishable by a fine up to $1,000 and imprisonment of up to six months. Parsons said Marks Jewelers has kept records of purchases for decades, and he believes it deters people from bringing in stolen goods.

JEFF NEAL, OPERATING PARTNER at Sunflower Pawn and Jewelry, uses a loupe to closely examine a Rolex watch being sold by a customer on Friday. “Anybody that’s doing it the wrong way, they pretty much don’t come here,” he said. “The bad guys find other places.” Jeff Neal, operating partner of Sunflower Pawn and Jewelry, 2429 Iowa St., also supports the proposal. Sunflower records items bought and loans written at the end of ev-

ery shift, Neal said. He said providing such information to police helps deter criminals and helps customers make purchases with confidence. “Pawn shops have changed, and they’ve become very tech-savvy,” Neal said. “They have to be in order to keep up with the changing of demands and the changing of trends.”

Representatives at Jayhawk Pawn and Jewelry, 1804 W. Sixth St., and Lawrence Pawn and Jewelry, 944 E. 23rd St., declined to comment for this story. The city sent letters to all of Lawrence’s licensed pawnbrokers and precious metal dealers notifying them of the proposed ordinance and Tuesday’s hearing, Kaminska said. She said the city met with each business that replied to answer questions and hear concerns, and that some business owners would probably attend Tuesday’s meeting. — Enterprise reporter Sara Shepherd can be reached at 832-7187.

In northwest Kansas, around Colby and Goodland, some land owners have formed â&#x20AC;&#x153;Local Enhanced Management Areas,â&#x20AC;? or LEMAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, as part of a voluntary effort to control and manage the depletion of their wells.

Wes Jackson, an early advocate of sustainable agriculture, the Land Institute conducts research and promotes the use of perennial crops, hybrid forms of grains and legumes that do not require tilling and replanting every year. Svaty noted that those crops not only require less water, but they are also better able to adapt to changes in the Kansas climate.

New breakfast choice on the horizon Editor’s Note: These are excerpts from Chad Lawhorn’s Town Talk column, which appears each weekday at LJWorld.com. To subscribe to the e-mail edition of Town Talk, go to: ljworld.com/towntalk/ signup/ We’re just a few days into 2014, and already this new year is conspiring against my utter devotion to high fashion. Signs have emerged that the popular breakfast eatery The Big Biscuit will be opening a restaurant near Sixth and Wakarusa streets. That’s of course a major fashion story in my household because biscuits and gravy are the ultimate Thai food. Check that. I mean Tie food, as in if there is a bowl of sausage gravy anywhere within a mile of me, my necktie will find its way into it. The Big Biscuit will be opening in the Westgate shopping center, which is the center that has Marisco’s, Glory Days Pizza and several other longtime businesses. The restaurant will be taking the large, center anchor position of the shopping center. It will be the restaurant’s sixth location. The other five are in the Kansas City metro area, with the closest one in Shawnee. Chad Offerdahl, an owner of the restaurant group, said he expects the Lawrence location to open in mid-to-late February. He thinks the busi-

ness will fill a niche as well. “We’re feel-good food,” Offerdahl said. “You come here to get the kind of food your mom made when you were growing up.” As its name suggests, the restaurant specializes in breakfast fare. According to its website, the restaurant has nearly 60 breakfast dishes on its menu. I’m talking about 11 omelets, ranging from your traditional Western omelet to one called a Ranchero that actually has grilled steak, jalapeno peppers and other ingredients. There are also nearly 10 kinds of pancakes, including a cinnamon roll version, blueberry, strawberry and banana pecan. The restaurant also is open for lunch with a menu that includes a variety of burgers, sandwiches, chicken dishes and wraps. Of course, breakfast is also served during the lunch hour as well.

If your New Year’s resolution involved dressing

up like Elvis and having a Turkey Turkey on Pita, it appears you now have one less option in Lawrence. The Spangles near Sixth and Kasold streets has gone out of business. (What? You don’t dress like Elvis when you go to a 1950s-style diner?) The restaurant, 3420 W. Sixth Street, made a big splash when it entered the Lawrence market. About 250 people camped outside the doors — I’m talking about in actual tents in the parking lot — when the restaurant opened in April 2006. Campers, who stayed through a thunderstorm, were hoping to win a contest where the first 100 people at the restaurant would win certificates for a year’s worth of free meals. I chatted with Dale Steven, one of the owners of the Spangles chain this afternoon, and he confirmed the restaurant has no plans to reopen in another location in Lawrence. “We’re very disappointed, but we would sure like to come back,” Steven said. “We would like to look at other locations in town.” Steven said the company — which operates 28 restaurants across the state — decided that the location near Sixth and Kasold streets simply wasn’t producing the sales the business expected. Steven said he thinks a location closer to Kan-

sas University would be a better fit for the business. Steven said Spangles leases the location at 3420 W. Sixth Street, which used to house a Runza restaurant. He said Spangles is trying to sub-lease the space to another tenant.

Get your hiking boots laced up and start hoping for warmer weather — or heavier long johns. Either way, it really is looking like Lawrence is going to have a new nature park and hiking trail. Officials with the Lawrence nonprofit group Outside for a Better Inside have announced they’ve successfully raised $55,000 in private funds to match a $55,000 grant that will be used to fund a central Lawrence trail project. As we’ve previously reported, the Sunflower Foundation has agreed to provide grant money for a project to build a nature park and trail on about eight acres of the former Veterans of Foreign Wars post in the Pinckney neighborhood. The Bert Nash Community Mental Health Center is donating the property to the city, and Outside for a Better Inside has committed to find the grant money and the private money to build the trail through the property, which has an old pond and a good amount of hardwood forest.

States confirm water pollution from drilling By Kevin Begos Associated Press

PITTSBURGH — In at least four states that have nurtured the nation’s energy boom, hundreds of complaints have been made about well-water contamination from oil or gas drilling, and pollution was confirmed in a number of them, according to a review that casts doubt on industry suggestions that such problems rarely happen. The Associated Press requested data on drilling-related complaints in Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia and Texas and found major differences in how the states report such problems. Texas provided the most detail, while the other states provided only general outlines. And while the confirmed problems represent only a tiny portion of the thousands of oil and gas wells drilled each year in the U.S., the lack of detail in some state reports could help fuel public confusion and mistrust. The AP found that Pennsylvania received 398 complaints in 2013 alleging that oil or natural gas drilling polluted or otherwise affected private water wells, compared with 499 in 2012. The Pennsylvania complaints can include allegations of short-term diminished water flow,

The Sunflower grant, however, was contingent upon local leaders matching the grant money with private funds. Longtime Lawrence real estate executive John McGrew leads the Outside for a Better Inside group, and he predicted it wouldn’t take long to come up with the necessary $55,000 in matching funds. And it didn’t. It was only announced in mid-December that the group had been chosen for the grant. The group now hopes to raise another $20,000 to make other improvements to the trail project. I haven’t heard anything definitive from city officials yet, but Outside for a Better Inside now believes that work could begin on constructing the trail this spring. Previously city officials have said they believe this new city park, which will be named in honor of the late Bert Nash leader Sandra Shaw, could be open to the public by the fall. The idea for trails in the area may not be done yet. The property, which is at about Second and Alabama streets, is adjacent to Burcham Park. There’s been talk of extending a trail from Burcham to Constant Park, which is the piece of greenspace along the Kansas River at Sixth and Kentucky streets. Marilyn Hull — a staff member with

the Douglas County Community Foundation, which administers a fund for Outside for a Better Inside — said private fundraising is being contemplated for that project. I haven’t heard an estimate yet of how much money needs to be raised. If successful, the project would create a river-walk area that would be just a block or two away from Massachusetts Street. As we previously have reported, there also have been discussions at City Hall about creating a new East Lawrence trail that would connect the Burroughs Creek Trail near 11th and Haskell streets with the Constant Park area near Sixth and Kentucky streets. Hull said those discussions also are continuing. The idea of a robust trail system throughout the community has supporters on the Lawrence City Commission. And given that more than $50,000 in private money was raised in less than half a month, it sure appears there’s support in the private sector as well. It looks like an issue to keep an eye on. In the meantime, though, I’m going to put another layer of long johns on. — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362. Follow him at Twitter.com/clawhorn_ljw

GREG DAVIS NAILS A 180-DEGREE TURN on a snow jump he built at Reservoir Park in Fort Wayne, Ind., on Sunday.

Dangerous freeze penetrates Midwest By Kerry Lester and Tammy Webber Associated Press

CHICAGO — Icy, snowcovered roads and high winds made travel treacherous Sunday from the Dakotas and Michigan to Missouri as much of the nation braced for the next winter wallop: a dangerous cold that could break records. A whirlpool of frigid, dense air known as a “polar vortex” was expected to suppress temperatures in more than half of the continental U.S. starting into Monday and Tuesday, with wind chill warnings stretching from Montana to Alabama. It was 5 degrees at kickoff Sunday afternoon inside sold-out Lambeau Field for a playoff game between the Green Bay Packers and the San Francisco 49ers, one of the coldest ever played. “We suited up, we brought all the snowboarding gear we use ... and added to it,” said 49ers fan Jeff Giardinelli of Fresno, Calif. “Without the wind, which isn’t here yet, we’re good. When it gets windy, we’ll be ready for it.” The forecast is extreme: 25 below zero in Fargo, N.D., minus 31 in International Falls, Minn., and minus 15 in Indianapolis and Chicago. Wind chills — what it feels like outside when high winds are factored into the temperature — could drop into the minus 50s and 60s. Northeastern Montana was warned of wind chills up to 59 below zero. “It’s just a dangerous cold,” said National Weather Service meteorologist Butch Dye in Missouri.

It hasn’t been this cold for almost two decades in many parts of the country. Frostbite and hypothermia can set in quickly at 15 to 30 below zero.

Several Midwestern states received up to a foot of new snow Sunday. The National Weather Service said snowfall at O’Hare International Airport in Chicago totaled more than 11 inches as of 6 p.m. Sunday — the most since the Feb. 2, 2011, storm. The St. Louis area had about a foot of snow and northern Indiana had at least 8 inches. Officials closed several Illinois roadways because of drifting snow and warned residents to stay inside. Roads in the Midwest were particularly dangerous, and officials in Missouri said it was too cold for rock salt to be very effective. Authorities also urged people to check on elderly and disabled relatives and neighbors. In Chicago, temperatures were expected to bottom out around minus 15 overnight, likely setting a daily record, National Weather Service meteorologist Ed Fenelon said. Earlier Sunday, temperatures sank to minus 20 and colder in northern Minnesota and Grand Forks, N.D. It hasn’t been this cold for almost two decades in many parts of the country. Frostbite and hypothermia can set in quickly at 15 to 30 below zero.

Officials said the flight originated in Mexico and all three aboard were pilots and Mexican men. Alex Burchetta, director of operations for the Pitkin County Sheriff’s Office, identified the man who died as Sergio Carranza Brabata, of Mexico. He did not release the names of the two injured, and he did not know where in Mexico the 54-year-old Brabata lived. Burchetta said the plane went off the right side of the runway, flipped over and burst into flames. Ginny Dyche, a spokeswoman for Aspen Valley Hospital, said the facility received two patients who were involved in the crash. She later said one patient in fair condition and another in critical condition were transferred elsewhere.“

Bangladesh election violence kills 18 DHAKA, BANGLADESH — Police in Bangladesh fired at protesters and opposition activists torched more than 100 polling stations Sunday during a national election boycotted by the opposition and described as flawed by the international community. At least 18 people were killed in election-related violence. Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s refusal to heed opposition demands to step down and appoint

a neutral caretaker to oversee the election led to the boycott, undermining the legitimacy of the vote, which is all but certain to return Hasina to power. Opposition activists have staged attacks, strikes and transportation blockades in unrest that has left at least 293 people dead since last year. Voter turnout appeared low, though official numbers were not immediately known. In a statement, opposition spokesman Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir praised Bangladeshis for “rejecting this meaningless” election.

1 dead, 1 injured in high-rise fire NEW YORK — One man was killed and another was injured in a three-alarm high-rise apartment fire in midtown Manhattan on Sunday, authorities said. Firefighter spokesman Danny Glover said the fire was reported shortly after 11 a.m. Sunday in an apartment on the 20th floor of a building at 43rd Street and 10th Avenue. About 150 firefighters battled the fire and brought it under control shortly before 1 p.m., Glover said. It was not immediately clear what caused the fire,

which spread heavy smoke to several apartments around the affected apartment, Glover said. Police said one of the victims, 27-year-old Daniel McClung, was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead. The other victim, a 32-year-old male, was hospitalized in stable condition, police said. Assistant Fire Chief John Sudhik told the Daily News the victims were overcome by smoke and flames in the stairwell. Five firefighters suffered minor injuries battling the blaze and several civilians were injured but refused to go to the hospital, a fire official said.

Salary surge A proposal to more than double salaries for the Lawrence City Commission is likely to gain approval Tuesday unless the public insists on more moderate action.

W

hatever negative feedback Lawrence city commissioners have received about huge commission salary increases, it isn’t enough to cause them to back off on the proposal. An ordinance that will more than double the salaries for city commissioners and the mayor is on the commission’s Tuesday agenda for first reading. The proposal, which was first discussed in mid-December, appears to have the support of the necessary three commissioners. Barring a significant protest from local residents, the ordinance is on track for easy approval. City commissioners currently receive a salary of $9,000 a year, and the mayor receives $10,000 — plus reimbursement for city-related travel expenses and the opportunity to participate in the KPERS retirement plan and the city’s health insurance plan. The ordinance calls for the annual salaries to rise to $20,000 for a city commissioner and $25,000 for the mayor, with the same benefits. The ordinance would go into effect in April 2015, after the next City Commission election. Mayor Mike Dever and Commissioners Terry Riordan and Bob Schumm will complete their terms then and won’t benefit from the raise unless they are re-elected. Commissioners Mike Amyx and Jeremy Farmer will be in the middle of their terms and would receive the increased salary for their remaining two years in office. Because they would benefit personally, Amyx and Farmer abstained from the December vote to move forward on the salary ordinance. That’s good form, but from a practical standpoint it doesn’t matter as long as the other three commissioners vote for the raises. It’s been 15 years since commissioners received a raise, and moderate raises would be justified. However, more than doubling the salaries in one swoop is too much and would put Lawrence city commission salaries well above those paid to commissioners in similar-sized and even some significantly larger Kansas cities. As we have noted previously, Lawrence city commissioners should be compensated for the time they must take away from their jobs or businesses, but serving on the commission isn’t a full-time job and salaries should reflect that. The commission’s first discussion of the salary increases came after 11 p.m. on Dec. 18. The salary ordinance also is at the end of Tuesday’s agenda, but we trust commissioners will make sure the salary discussion takes place early enough to accommodate public comment, which also can be submitted in writing before Tuesday’s meeting. Now is the time for local taxpayers to let commissioners know how they feel about these raises. LAWRENCE

2014 election gains are up for grabs WASHINGTON — Two years from today, Iowa — dark, brooding, enigmatic Iowa — will be enjoying its quadrennial moment as the epicenter of the universe. And in 10 months, voters will vent their spleens — if they still are as splenetic as they now claim to be — in congressional elections. Some numbers define the political landscape. In an October poll, 60 percent favored voting out of office every congressional incumbent. The poll was taken just 11 months after voters reelected 90 percent of House and 91 percent of Senate incumbents. Democrats are more likely to lose control of the Senate than gain control of the House. Ninety-three percent of Republican House members represent districts Mitt Romney carried, 96 percent of Democratic members represent districts Barack Obama carried. Since the mid-19th-century emergence of the current two-party competition, no party holding the presidency has ever won control of the House in any midterm election. Larry Sabato and Kyle Kondik of the University of Virginia Center for Politics note that since the Civil War, the average turnout in presidential elections has been 63 percent and in midterms 48 percent. The decline comes mostly from the party holding the presi-

In an October poll, 60 percent favored voting out of office every congressional incumbent. The poll was taken just 11 months after voters re-elected 90 percent of House and 91 percent of Senate incumbents.” dency, and analyst Charlie Cook says three crucial components of Obama’s coalition — unmarried women, minorities (more than 40 percent of Obama’s 2012 vote) and young people — are especially prone to skipping midterms. In the seven midterms since 1984, voters under 30 averaged 13 percent of the midterm vote, down from 19 percent during presidential years. Furthermore, for House elections much of the Democratic vote is inefficiently concentrated in and around large cities. Obama won 80 percent

or more in 27 districts; Romney did so in only one. That is why in 2012, Democratic House candidates got about 1.4 million more votes than Republican candidates, but did not win control of the House. Today the 30 Republican governors — four short of the all-time GOP high of 34 in the 1920s — represent 315 electoral votes. Republicans have a 52 percent majority of state legislative seats. After the 2012 elections, Republicans controlled the governorships and legislatures in 25 states with 53 percent of the nation’s population; Democrats had unified control of 13 states with 30 percent of the population. Since the emergence of the Republican Party, only two Democratic presidents, Franklin Roosevelt and John Kennedy, have been followed by Democrats, and both FDR and JFK died in office, so their successors ran as incumbents. But Republicans have not decisively won a presidential election since 1988. In 2012, Obama became the first president since Ronald Reagan to win two popularvote majorities, but Obama got 3.6 million fewer votes than in 2008, a 5 percent decline. (The last re-elected president, Bush, got 11.6 million more votes in 2004 than in 2000.) Except for a small gain among those 30-39, Obama lost ground among

every age cohort. And in 2012, Republicans improved the share of votes they got in 2008 from men (in 2012 Obama became the first person to win a presidential election while losing the male vote by seven points), whites, young voters and Jews. And independents: John McCain lost them 44-52 but Romney won them 50-45. In three of the most intensely contested states in 2012, Florida, Virginia and Ohio, Obama’s victory margins averaged 2.6 points. But even if he had lost all three he would have still won with 272 electoral votes. Analyst Jeffrey Bell calculates this: “Of the 12 ‘battleground’ states, Obama won 11 — eight of them by a margin of more than 5 percentage points. Remarkably, this meant that if there had been a uniform 5 point swing toward the Republicans in the national popular vote margin — that is, had Romney won the popular vote by 1.1 percentage points instead of losing it by 3.9 — Obama would still have prevailed in the Electoral College, winning 23 states and 272 electoral votes.” These numbers suggest that the great political prizes can be won by either party. There will be more numbers to contemplate by the time the 1 percent of Americans who live in Iowa are heard from. — George Will is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.

OLD HOME TOWN From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Jan. 6, 1914: YEARS “Elmer Stebbins, AGO a Clinton man, IN 1914 will have to stand trial in the February term of district court for assault with intent to kill. Stebbins is charged with having fired three shots at Charles E. Harrell, a farmer living about a mile out of town.... According to the story told by witnesses at the preliminary hearing yesterday, Stebbins had been in company with Harrell’s wife a number of times.”

Bernanki will go down as innovator WASHINGTON — When Ben Bernanke was asked last month what historians would write about his eightyear tenure as Fed chairman, which ends Jan. 31, he gave a characteristically reticent answer: “I’ll be interested to see. I hope I live long enough to read the textbooks.” The surprising truth is that Bernanke, the modest, balding economics professor from Princeton, may go down as the most radical innovator in the Fed’s history — and also, one of the most successful. To combat the financial meltdown that began in September 2008, Bernanke invented a new tool kit of monetary policy, including the still-controversial strategy of asset purchases known as “quantitative easing.” Bernanke’s great achievement at the Fed was the way he combined risk-taking and prudence. He understood that as the financial markets buckled, the usual presumption in favor of orthodox policy was reversed. To restore liquidity and confidence, it was necessary to experiment. But in doing so, Bernanke drew on the most basic rule for dealing with financial panics, enunciated by Walter Bagehot in 1873: Lend early and freely to solvent institutions. Bernanke showered the financial system with money as if he were hosing down a fire: The Fed’s balance sheet nearly quadrupled, growing

from $900 billion in 2007 to $3.5 trillion in mid-2013, for a compound annual growth rate of 28 percent, according to a new report by McKinsey & Co. In the process, Bernanke pushed short-term interest rates nearly to zero and 10year rates to below 2 percent. This high-voltage monetary stimulus appears to have worked: By Bernanke’s count, real GDP has grown in 16 of the last 17 quarters and by the third quarter of 2013 was 5.5 percent above its pre-recession peak. Unemployment has fallen from 10 percent in late 2009 to 7 percent recently. These gains have come despite restrictive fiscal policy that, according to an estimate by the Congressional Budget Office, reduced output last year by as much as 1.5 percentage points. One measure of what

Bernanke accomplished is to compare his record with that of policymakers during the Great Depression. As recounted by Liaquat Ahamed in his brilliant 2009 book, “Lords of Finance,” the central bankers of the day made disastrous mistakes, especially in sticking too long with a gold standard that plunged the system ever deeper into crisis. Writing in October 2008, as the financial world was collapsing once more, Ahamed warned in the foreword to his book: “In trying to calm anxious investors and soothe skittish markets, central bankers are called upon to wrestle with some of the most elemental and unpredictable forces of mass psychology.” Bernanke read the book when it was published, perhaps to pass his sleepless nights during the first year of the crisis. But more important, he had written his own version of the same history while at Princeton before he joined the Fed. He had been schooled for financial disaster, quite literally. “The crisis bore a strong family resemblance to a classic financial panic,” Bernanke explained in a farewell speech prepared for delivery Friday. “Likewise, the tools used to fight the panic, though adapted to the modern context, were analogous to those that would have been used a century ago.”

The challenge for Janet Yellen, Bernanke’s successor, will be to dismantle safely the structure that he so artfully constructed. Bernanke began this “tapering” process in December, announcing that the Fed would reduce its asset purchases from $85 billion a month to $75 billion. That’s still a torrent of cash swirling through the system, and there are skeptics who doubt it can be withdrawn without a sharp spike in interest rates that could devastate financial markets all over again. Bernanke’s Wall Street rescue, and his broader policy of quantitative easing, has been criticized for helping the wealthy. That’s surely true, in the sense that by keeping the boat afloat, he allowed the richest Americans to hold on to their privileged seats. But the recent McKinsey study notes that those hurt most by ultra-low interest rates have been savers (which by definition means those with spare money). The big beneficiaries have been corporate borrowers, homeowners and the government itself. Americans have been uneasy about central banks since the days of Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson. But looking at Bernanke’s record, even the skeptics should grant that the country was lucky to have him when the crisis hit. — David Ignatius is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.

SAN DIEGO STATE 61, KANSAS 57

Cold snapped

KANSAS UNIVERSITY CENTER JOEL EMBIID, LEFT, REACTS AFTER A BALL WAS CALLED OUT-OF-BOUNDS OFF HIM and awarded back to San Diego State during the second half of the Jayhawks’ 61-57 loss to the Aztecs on Sunday at Allen Fieldhouse.

Frigid Jayhawks fall to Aztecs By Gary Bedore gbedore@ljworld.com

Kansas University junior floor leader Naadir Tharpe figures some soul-searching is in order following a oncein-seven-years occurrence — a home nonconference loss in Allen Fieldhouse. “On Monday, I’m going to ask the guys, ‘How much do we really care about what’s on the front of our jersey? How much do we care about winning (for Kansas)?’” Tharpe said after Sunday’s 61-57 loss to San Diego State, KU’s first at home to a non-Big 12 foe since a 78-71 setback to Oral Roberts on Nov. 15, 2006. The streak encompassed 68 games. “I’ve been here a long time,” Tharpe said. “Some

of the guys ahead of me (on the depth chart his first two years at KU) ... tears came down dudes’ eyes when we lost. I know nobody on this team wants to lose. Everybody, including myself, has to bring more to the table.” Tharpe, who was playing on a tender ankle that he sprained at practice Wednesday, was as cold as the frigid weather outside, missing eight of 10 shots on a day the Jayhawks hit a historically low 29.8 percent of their attempts. It’s the worst shooting performance by a KU team in Allen since at least 198889, the first year of Kansas’ official records for field goals and field-goal at- KANSAS COACH BILL SELF LOOSENS HIS TIE as he leaves the court following the tempts. Jayhawks’ first nonconference home Please see KANSAS, page 3B loss since 2006.

It looked so much like countless other games played in Allen Fieldhouse during the Bill Self era. The players from the better team defended the paint as if their lives depended on it. Their long, springy bodies trapped the post with such conviction. They made easy shots for the opponent so difficult to come by that when they arrived, the minds of the shooters weren’t ready for them, so they hurried. At the other end, the better team executed a not-alwayspretty inside-out job longer on substance than style. The better team won the battle of the boards and had clutch responses to runs from the guys trying to catch up. The better squad banked

on an experienced, savvy, talented guard to make big plays. What set this one apart from so many others, of course, was that the guys wearing enemy colors formed the better team.

KANSAS GUARD CECE HARPER, RIGHT, and Baylor guard Odyssey Sims eye a possession in the Bears’ 75-55 victory Sunday in Waco, Texas.

WACO, TEXAS — Odyssey Sims scored 30 points while matching the Baylor record for career three-pointers, and the No. 9 Bears stretched their home winning streak to 68 games with a 75-55 victory over Kansas University on Sunday. All of those home wins span the career of Sims, the All-American senior point guard. The Lady Bears (121, 2-0 Big 12) have also won 42 consecutive conference games, and the conference streak is 51 in a row when including their three consecutive league tournament championships. Freshman Nina Davis

had 19 points and seven rebounds for Baylor. CeCe Harper led Kansas (7-7, 0-2) with 15 points and seven assists, while Asia Boyd had 12 points. The game was marred late when Kansas freshman guard Keyla Morgan had a seizure and was down facefirst on the floor after shooting a ball with 1:18 left in the game. Morgan was tended to for several minutes, at one point wildly kicking both legs, before being put on a stretcher and taken off the court. While Morgan was being tended to, Baylor players went over to the Kansas bench and joined Jayhawks players for a prayer.

Morgan had multiple seizures while in high school in California, but Kansas coach Bonnie Henrickson said it is the first time Morgan has had any such issues at KU. “It’s scary for all of us,” Henrickson said. “At least I get to be out there and I can hear her talk, see that she’s squeezing her hands and she can move her toes a little bit. ... She’s in a great place for medical care and they’ll evaluate her at the hospital, and we’ll just wait to hear if we can take her home tonight.” Kansas spokeswoman Theresa Kurtz said in a text to the Associated Press that Morgan was released from the hospital and traveled

home with the team Sunday night. Sims, the national scoring leader with 30 points a game, responded with some big plays after a couple of frustrating moments in the first half. Kansas was within 17-15 when Harper had a steal and a breakaway layup after stealing a pass intended for Sims. But Sims ended the mini-run by the Jayhawks with a tough layup. Sims missed two in a row from long range in one short stretch. She was clearly frustrated after the second shot ricocheted off the rim, but then responded by scoring seven straight points.

Longhorns announce Strong hire AUSTIN, TEXAS â&#x20AC;&#x201D; New Texas football coach Charlie Strong says heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s excited to lead one of the premier programs in the country, calling the Longhorns job a dream. In a statement released by the school formally announcing the hire Sunday, Strong called Texas a special program because of its history, tradition and pride. Strong spent the previous Strong four years at Louisville. His Cardinals teams went 23-3 the last two seasons. He replaces Mack Brown, who coached Texas for 16 years and won the 2005 national championship. The Longhorns have lost at least four games each of the last four seasons. Strong says the decision to leave Louisville was difficult, but Texas was a job offer he couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pass up. Strong was traveling to Austin on Sunday and will be introduced today at a news conference.

Three tied for lead at Tournament KAPALUA, HAWAII â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Webb Simpson wanted to give his caddie something good to see on television. He delivered a 5-under 68 that gave Simpson a three-way tie for the lead with Dustin Johnson and Jordan Spieth going into the final round of the Tournament of Champions. Simpson said he played with a heavy heart Sunday upon learning the newborn son of his caddie, Paul Tesori, was in intensive care. He says players and caddies are sending along their best to Tesori, and that Simpson rarely went a hole without thinking about him. But he played some good golf on a beautiful day, getting into the mix of a wild tournament. Johnson and Spieth each had a 69 to join Simpson at 14-under 205. Zach Johnson stumbled to a 74 and was two back. Former Kansas University golfer Gary Woodland shot a 6-under 67 Sunday to move into a four-way tie for fifth place.

Arkansas St. tops Ball St. at GoDaddy Bowl MOBILE, ALA. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Backup quarterback Fredi Knighten threw a 13-yard pass to Allen Muse with 32 seconds remaining to lift Arkansas State past Ball State 23-20 at the GoDaddy Bowl on Sunday night. Ball State had a chance to tie at the end of regulation, but Scott Secorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 38-yard field-goal attempt was blocked as time expired. Arkansas State (8-5) won the GoDaddy Bowl for a second straight season, despite losing starting quarterback Adam Kennedy to a knee injury in the second quarter. Knighten had 115 yards passing and 97 yards rushing. Ball State (10-3) pushed ahead 20-16 with 1:33 remaining on a one-yard touchdown run by Jahwan Edwards, but couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hold the lead.

SAN DIEGO STATE PLAYERS AQEEL QUINN (10) AND JJ O’BRIEN CELEBRATE the Aztecs’ 61-57 victory over Kansas University on Sunday at Allen Fieldhouse.

Aztecs relish ‘fantastic’ victory By Matt Tait mtait@ljworld.com

Following his team’s 61-57 victory over No. 16 Kansas University on Sunday at Allen Fieldhouse, San Diego State coach Steve Fisher sat in front of the media with the look of a math teacher and meticulously dissected all of the things that allowed his team to pull off the upset. From the calculated decision to double team the post on defense — “We had to do that against Kansas,” Fisher said — to his no-brainer move to foul at the end when

KU had possession and needed a three-pointer to tie in the waning seconds, Fisher went over each aspect in detail and with poise. When all of the questions were asked and all of the answers uttered, Fisher smiled and summed it up the best way he knew how. “Thank you very much,” he began. “This was a fantastic victory for the Aztecs.” The victory was San Diego State’s 11th in a row and moved 21st-ranked SDSU to 12-1. That it came in Lawrence — in Allen Fieldhouse, no less

— against what Fisher called a very good team only made the feeling sweeter. “To come in here and give Bill Self his ninth home loss, that’s pretty neat,” Fisher said. “I think what this win will do, it will get people east of the Mississippi (River) talking about us.” Added SDSU guard Xavier Thames, who led the Aztecs with 16 points in 35 minutes: “This is a great win for us. A lot of teams don’t come in here and get victories. I’m just blessed to be a part of this with my teammates.” While the victory’s sig-

for us,” SDSU forward Winston Shepard said. “We’ve been working on it all week. We’re used to Josh Davis (10 points, 14 rebounds) doing that, but Skylar Spencer did a great job against, really, an NBA front line and it was big for us.” SDSU finished with just a 19-16 edge in offensive rebounds but benefitted when so many of those second-chance points came down the stretch as KU tried to mount a furious charge from 11 points down. “We made some crucial second-chance opportunities,” Fisher said.

In the end, every bounce, tip, box out and free throw proved to be crucial for one of the most memorable victories in San Diego State history. “It’s a real big win,” said Spencer, who finished with 13 points and nine rebounds. “We’ve been thinking about it all year, but we’ve been taking it one game at a time, and we’re just happy we came out with the W.” Added Fisher: “We don’t have the history Kansas does, but our recent history is pretty good.”

“I thought, of course, our offense was totally inept, in large part because they really guard,” Self said of the No. 21-ranked Aztecs (12-1). “There was definitely a lid (on basket). The biggest lid was, they really guard. We made five shots outside of six inches — four threes (in 16 tries), and Frank (Mason) made a long two. Those are the only shots we made that were not layups. It’s hard to win if can’t make the defense pay for sagging.” Of course, the shooting wasn’t the only problem. San Diego State outrebounded No. 16-ranked KU, 51-39. “Rebounding, we were obviously God-awful,” Self said, “and they whipped us physically. Still, we had a chance and the crowd tried to help us (cheering wildly down the stretch).” One foiled chance came when the Jayhawks, who were down by as many as 11 (38-27 at 13:44 and 42-31 at 10:31), cut it to 57-55 following a Mason three with 1:21 left. After a missed shot, KU rebounded, but the ball slipped through Mason’s hands as he was beginning to accelerate on the break. KU suffered a big turnover with just under a minute left. “Frank’s got the ball in transition and just loses it. I don’t know how. He said it slipped out of his hands,” Self said. Next, with :46 left and KU still down two, the

nificance figures to have a long and lasting impact on SDSU’s big picture, the Aztecs’ ability to enjoy the moment came down to two things — offensive rebounds and post defense. The latter showed up early and often, as the Aztecs sent waves of defenders at KU’s big men every time they touched the ball inside. Fisher said that had been a staple of his at every coaching stop and something his current team has become great at despite getting away from it for a few years recently. “It was a focal point

officials had to visit the monitor before ruling that a rebound had gone off KU freshman Joel Embiid out of bounds. San Diego State kept possession to a booing crowd’s dismay. “It’s hard for me to be upset with officials if they look at it. They are not going to call it the wrong way on purpose. It obviously was off us,” Self said. “What I was hoping for, what I told John (Higgins, referee) ... I said, ‘If it takes six eyes, and you can’t figure it out, at least we know it’s indisputable.

ed the ball up high and was fouled on a drive. He made the first free throw, and after a San Diego State timeout, missed the second at 11.9 seconds, as KU trailed, 57-56. “Perry had a chance to make the free throw late, but you hate to put it on one free throw or one guy because there are 1,000 plays in a game that can help change the outcome,” Self said. “Everything is magnified late, and we just didn’t get it done.” Next, Xavier Thames (16 points, 5-for-16 shoot-

No way they would miss that with three guys looking at it.” KU had additional chances to force overtime. JJ O’Brien missed the front end of a one-andone at :34.6, with KU gaining possession and calling timeout at :20, still down two. Perry Ellis (four points, 1-for-8 shooting) accept-

KU in theory had a chance to tie, but S.D. State coach Fisher had an Aztec foul Mason at 5.7 seconds rather than let KU launch a possible game-tying three. Mason missed the first free throw and hit the second. Down 59-57, KU again fouled Thames at 4.6 seconds, and he hit a pair of charities to clinch it. “The difference is this, and it’s something minor, but twice we put two guys on Thames on out-of-bounds under-spot throw-ins, and he still caught it,” Self said of the senior standout. “All we had to do was make somebody else catch it, and they throw it to their best free-throw shooter, and of course he’s going to

make them because he’s clutch. That’s the difference. He just wanted the ball, and we have to make our guys want the ball like that. That was just young guys playing against old guys, and they just knew how to compete better down the stretch.” Freshmen Andrew Wiggins and Wayne Selden went a combined 6-of-22 from the field, good for 20 points. Only Mason (4-for-8, 14 points) and Joel Embiid (3-for-5, 12 points) shot 50 percent or better for KU, which fell to 9-4 heading into Wednesday’s 6 p.m. Big 12 opener at Oklahoma. “We’re a target,” Tharpe said. “Everybody’s going to give us their best shot, especially in the league. We can’t dwell on this. We have to focus in on what coach says, be in tune with what coach is saying and do everything we can to win.”

left no question as to which team is playing better basketball in January. The rankings and the oddsmakers’ lines suggest that San Diego State’s 61-57 Sunday afternoon victory against Kansas counts as an upset. Nothing about it felt that way. KU’s three leading scorers on the afternoon — Frank Mason and Andrew Wiggins with 14 apiece, Joel Embiid with 12 — were freshmen, and 115 minutes were played by frosh, compared to nine minutes for the Aztecs (12-1), whose only loss came at the hands of No. 1 Arizona. KU’s abysmal shooting numbers (.298) were more a product of San Diego State’s defense, and to a smaller extent poor shot selection, than the Jayhawks seemed to realize afterward. “We all missed shots that we usually make, and that can happen from time to time with a young team,” Wiggins said. And it happens just about all the time to San Diego State opponents. Josh Davis, a 6-foot8, fifth-year senior who

KANSAS GUARD NAADIR THARPE, LEFT, GIVES A SUGGESTION to teammate Perry Ellis during a San Diego State run in the first half. used the same rule to transfer from Tulane that Tarik Black used to come to Kansas, did a nice job of guarding Wiggins and contributed 10 points and 14 rebounds to the winning effort. Wiggins made four of 14 shots. “He didn’t really affect me,” Wiggins said. “I just think I missed shots that I usually make.” Defensive juggernauts such as San Diego State tend to leave opposing players thinking that way, but it was no coincidence that each KU player, except Embiid and Mason, missed more shots than he made.

Self faces a different challenge with this bunch than most because of its inexperience, coupled with a basketball slate that’s the equivalent of an academic schedule packed with a variety of calculus classes taught in Chinese one day, Russian the next. Will it make or break the young Jayhawks, who haven’t yet mastered the art of winning close ones? The last easy foe Kansas faced was Towson on Nov. 22 in Allen Fieldhouse. This week’s challenge, at Oklahoma on Wednesday and at home

Saturday against Kansas State, is followed by three consecutive games against Big 12 schools ranked in the top 13 in the nation. The Sooners (12-2) aren’t ranked but are coming off a road victory against Texas and have the most improved player in the Big 12, senior Cameron Clark. In 2006, Self won a share of the Big 12 regular-season title and won the conference tournament, starting three freshmen. If he does it again, it will be a tremendous achievement. It’s a realistic goal, yet far from a sure thing.

brother, but nothing will make him happy short of letting him move back in. Please ignore him. Do not defend yourself against his accusations. Do not, under any circumstances, let him guilt you into helping him out again unless it’s to help him find a full-time job. Simply say as calmly as possible, “I’m sorry things didn’t work out for you.” Repeat as necessary. Dear Annie: I’m still angry about something. The day after Thanksgiving was trash pickup in my neighborhood. Lo and behold, sticking out of my trash container was a Christmas card from my recycling collector, complete with his name and address. Two days later, I found the same type of card tucked into my newspaper from our carrier. This one included a mailing envelope. The next week, it was the garbage man.

Baldwin and Osborne share an easy rapport, with the controversial star acting as the grit that inspires the oyster to produce a pearl. When Baldwin is acerbic and sarcastic, Osborne is even more generous. At one point, Baldwin makes a crack about AMC’s first movie buff host, Bob Dorian, dismissing him as “no Robert Osborne.” Osborne stops him short, and offers Dorian thanks and praise. The point is that Baldwin was right, while Osborne was kind. And that’s why people love Robert Osborne in a medium and a world where class acts are increasingly rare.

Tonight’s other highlights

NBC offers three helpings of “The Blacklist” (7 p.m. to 10 p.m.) to help casual fans catch up.

Florida State meets Auburn in the Vizio BCS National Championship (7:30 p.m., ESPN).

Celebrities crowd the kitchen on “Rachael vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-Off” (8 p.m., Food).

A serial arsonist becomes a murder suspect on “Castle” (9 p.m., ABC).

Anthony revisits past restorations on “Hotel Impossible” (9 p.m., Travel).

UNIVERSAL CROSSWORD

SEE WHAT I MEAN? By Oliver Klamp

I know we should remember these people during the holidays, and I have no problem showing my appreciation. But it’s long past Christmas, and I have yet to hear any of them say “thank you” to me. Shouldn’t they? How hard is it to write the words “thank you” on the same type of card that they managed to give me in search of a tip? I’ve worked in the service industry for years and have always acknowledged a gift. Am I expecting too much? — Connecticut Dear Connecticut: Not at all. It is simply good manners to say thank you, and no one is exempt. Anyone who Universal Crossword receives a gift, including the newspaper carrier Edited by Timothy E.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  Understand what you are doing and why. Your need to handle a matter regarding real estate or your personal life is legitimate. Tonight: The only answer is “yes.” Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  Your creativity seems to be focused on a key issue. By the afternoon, your imaginative streak could fall flat or not be as helpful. Tonight: Remain playful. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)  Touch base with a family member who has a very different perspective from you about a domestic matter. Tonight: Forget tomorrow. Enjoy today! Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)  You will admire what a close friend thinks about a controversial issue. This person’s neutrality touches you deeply. Tonight: A must appearance. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  You could see a situation in a much more relatable and viable way than you had in the past. Recognize the change in your perspective, and explain it in a conversation with one of the parties involved. Tonight: Hang out.

Dear Annie: My brother and his wife recently stayed with us for nine months. He did some part-time work every now and then. His wife refused to find a job and mostly stayed home. My wife and I work long hours. We also then had to do the grocery shopping, cooking and taking care of our kids afterward. During this time, my brother and his wife never spent a penny on food or anything else. We politely said that we think it is time for them to find their own place and move out. A few hours later, they left screaming and shouting at us. We were speechless. My brother says we are cheap because we asked them to leave. What do I tell him?
