ROCK CHALK PARK

Concrete removal urged after warnings disregarded By Chad Lawhorn clawhorn@ljworld.com

City engineers are recommending that a portion of the roadwork at the Rock Chalk Park sports complex be torn out and rebuilt after crews employed by Lawrence contractor Thomas Fritzel disregarded warnings that the project wasn’t being built correctly. A new City Hall report found that a Nov. 30 concrete pour at the northwest Lawrence sports park proceeded even after cityhired inspectors told contractors that the rebar and other structures to support the streets didn’t meet city standards or specifications. “That is an issue,” Mayor Mike Dever said of the report’s findings. “You won’t Fritzel get any argument from me on that point. We’re not going to pay a construction management firm to tell us how to do this and then let the contractors do it however they are going to do it.” Bliss Sports, a Lawrence company controlled by Fritzel, is conducting the work as part of an unusual no-bid contract with the city that totals about $12 million. The contract calls for the city to pay for infrastructure work — such as streets, parking lots and utilities — for both the city’s 181,000-square-foot recreation center and the private track and field, soccer and softball stadiums that will be owned by one of Fritzel’s Mike Yoder/Journal-World Photo

Dead cars, burst pipes, canceled events come with Arctic blast By Nikki Wentling nwentling@ljworld.com

An influx of Arctic air that gripped much of the country on Monday sent temperatures in Lawrence well below zero, paralyzing cars, bursting pipes and keeping children home from school. Temperatures in the Lawrence area dipped to minus 9 degrees Monday morning with wind chill values as low as minus 25. The temperature did not break records, but the National Weather Service does not keep records on wind chill, the combined effect of the temperature and wind on exposed skin, which was a major factor Monday. Sgt. Trent McKinley, a Lawrence Police Department spokesman, said officers received several requests Sunday night and Monday morning to check on people and animals out in the subzero conditions. “For the most, part I think people didn’t want to get out and about,” McKinley said. “But there was one

person that did end up going to the hospital because of exposure to the elements.” In an effort to keep people inside, the city of Lawrence extended the time allotted for homeowners to clear sidewalks of snow and ice from the typical two days to four. Even so, some took the time Monday to shovel snow off sidewalks and driveways. Kansas University student Brandon Currie shoveled the driveway at the Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity house Monday afternoon when the temperature reached about 5 degrees. Though dressed in several layers of clothing, Currie had to take short breaks during

Firefighters from the Wakarusa, Osage, Palmyra, Lecompton and Clinton fire departments battled a house fire south of Lawrence on Monday afternoon. Firefighters responded to reports of a structure fire at 1056 East 1479 Road around 1 p.m. Lt. Steve Lewis, a spokesman for the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, said the fire began in the garage and spread. It’s not clear how much damage has been caused. Residents of the home, Andy and Mary Fry and their children, were uninjured. “The wife and kids were home at the time of the fire because school was called off,” Lewis said. “They were able to get out safely and are currently with friends.” The cause of the fire has not yet been determined.

Price tag of proposed KU apartments in question By Scott Rothschild srothschild@ljworld.com

Topeka — A proposed $17.5 million apartment building for students, including student-athletes, near Allen Fieldhouse, has raised the concern of one member of the Kansas Board of Regents. “I’m really struggling with the cost there,” Regents Vice Chairman Kenny Wilk said Monday. KU is seeking authorization for a two-story, 49,500-squarefoot building, which would be built along the west side of Naismith Drive, starting on the south end of the parking lot north of Oliver Hall and runKANSAS UNIVERSITY ning north from there. All the parking spots taken up by the building would be replaced west of Oliver Hall. The Fieldhouse Apartments would house 66 students, including 34 students who have at least 30 credit hours, and 32 student-athletes.

DEATHS

Price Jean Louise Hooper

Rich Johnson Automotive, 1410 N. Third St., arrived at his shop just before 10 a.m. Monday, anticipating a busy day. In cold weather, Johnson said, engines can freeze if antifreeze levels are low, and cold weather puts more pressure on car batteries. Mechanics at Academy Cars Service, 1527 W. Sixth St., worked on two cars by late morning that weren’t running because of problems caused by the cold weather. “The battery was bad on one, and the other is overheating profusely,” said employee Randy Ledbetter. Cold temperatures closed schools across northeast and north-central Kansas, including in the Kansas City area, Topeka, Lawrence, Manhattan and Salina. Schools were open in Wichita. Tonganoxie schools remain closed today. In Topeka, the Rescue Mission had four people out searching for homeless people. Its director, the Rev. Barry Feaker, said the team goes out regularly to help the homeless, connecting them with services and helping them find shelter, but the Arctic weather is making the job more urgent. He said the team began making the rounds of homeless camps last week to warn their residents that the severe cold was coming, “Some will just hunker down and stay there,” Feaker said.

“If something was not done to standards it obviously will have to be rectified,” Fritzel said. But Fritzel said he wasn’t on the job site the day of the pour and he said he wasn’t yet ready to concede that the work wasn’t done correctly. “I will stand behind any of the work out there,” Fritzel said. “It is quality work.” Fritzel said he didn’t have an explanation for why crews decided to proceed with the project despite being told by inspectors that the site hadn’t been prepared properly. City officials said the Nov. 30 pour has been the biggest issue related to construction quality they have encountered with Bliss thus far. But past inspection reports on the project have noted other discrepancies. A previous report noted that the thickness of the concrete on portions of George Williams Way, the main road leading into the sports complex, was not as great as the city’s contract required. The contract called for 10 inches of concrete, but city inspectors measured only 9 inches to 9.5 inches in most locations. City Engineer David Cronin said he likely would not recommend that George Williams Way be torn up and rebuilt. He said the new street meets the city’s minimum standards but falls short of the enhanced standards the city had sought as part of the project. He said he would recommend

the city deduct an undetermined amount of money from the project to compensate for the lesser quality work. An inspection sheet in September also shows that the amount of sub-grade used on several of the complex’s parking lots was less that the contract called for. In one instance, inspectors tested seven different locations, each time finding that the amount of crushed gravel to support the concrete was lacking by anywhere from a quarter of an inch to two inches. “I don’t think it has been anything intentional on the part of the contractors,” Cronin said. “And we have had areas where pavements have come in thicker than expected, too. The vast majority of work out there has been acceptable.” Corliss said he plans to brief commissioners on the construction issues at the complex at Tuesday’s City Commission meeting. Commissioner Mike Amyx, the lone commissioner who voted against the the no-bid contract arrangement with Bliss Sports, said he wants to make sure that the city doesn’t pay Fritzel’s firm for any of the infrastructure work until the entire project has been completed to the city’s satisfaction. Corliss confirmed that the city hasn’t yet paid for the Nov. 30 pour, and a payment isn’t scheduled to be made until the end of the project.

the process. “I go inside every now and then to drink coffee,” Currie said. “I just felt like I needed to shovel before it gets too bad.” Stephen Keys, of Lawrence, spent most of Sunday and Monday shoveling snow and laying rock salt for Lawrence businesses. He covered himself headto-toe in boots, coveralls, a hat and gloves. “I have lots of layers,” Keys said. “I’m used to central Iowa weather, so I’m covered.” Causing problems In addition to creating a hazard for Lawrence residents, the subzero temperatures took a toll on vehicles and pipes. Mike Capra, owner of Vito’s Plumbing, 645 Locust St., said he spent the day responding to reports of burst pipes at residences throughout Lawrence. “Pipes are breaking, water meters are freezing — it’s bad,” Capra said. “I get a few calls about pipes breaking every now then and during the winter, but this is unusual. It’s brutal.” While Capra responded to burst pipes, the AAA Roadside Rescue Team went out on more than 50 calls in Lawrence on Monday, most regarding battery and starting issues or frozen locks.

company. The sports stadiums will be leased to Kansas University. City Hall officials said they have been pleased with the quality of the work performed thus far by Bliss, but said the Nov. 30 concrete pour was concerning. “The city’s position is that the work is unacceptable, and the work has to be replaced,” City Manager David Corliss said. The city-hired inspectors from BG Consultants found: dowel bars at the contraction joint of the street had been run over by a concrete truck; the wrong type of steel reinforcing bars were used for half the width of the street; some tie-bars were drilled to five to seven inches instead of the specified 12 inches; and several curb and street joints were not properly aligned, which could cause additional cracking in the future, the report found. The work involved portions of the concrete that connects Rock Chalk Parkway, George Williams Way and an access road on the site. It wasn’t immediately clear how much it may cost the contractor to replace the material. It also was unclear whether Fritzel had agreed to remove and replace the concrete.

It is scheduled to be built in phases as donations and funding are available, KU spokesman Jack Martin said. Martin said the same credit-hour minimum proposed for the new facility is in place at Jayhawker Towers, which also has a number of student-athletes. “Jayhawker Towers have had a wait list for many years, so this project will help meet demand for on-campus apartments, as well as assisting in recruitment,” he said. The furnished apartments will be operated and managed by the Division of Student Housing. But Wilk said he was concerned that the construction cost comes out to about $265,000 per apartment, which, he said, was high. But Martin said the overall cost also includes a commons area, academic resource area and parking. The project will be funded through a combination of private funds and bond proceeds, according to a memo to the regents. “Fieldhouse Apartments will provide an apartment living environment unique among current offerings at the University of Kansas,” the memo said. The proposal was discussed briefly during a meeting of the regents’ Fiscal Affairs and Audit committee. It will be considered by the full Board of Regents next week. Wilk has requested that KU provide a more detailed explanation of the project at that meeting. KU is requesting authorization to amend its 2014 capital improvements plan to include the project. The timeline to construct the building is contingent on fundraising, but the goal is to start construction in March 2015 and complete it in July 2016.

Services for Jean Hooper, 93, Lawrence, are pending and will be announced by Rumsey-Yost Funeral Home. She died Monday at her home. rumsey-yost.com

Douglas County commissioners will be asked Wednesday to approve a process for distributing $325,000 through the Heritage Conservation Grant program, which funds local projects to develop and preserve cultural and natural conservation projects. Some of the major grants awarded in previous years have included $100,000 in 2012 for the core exhibit at the Watkins Community Museum of History, and $125,000 last year to the Lawrence Preservation Alliance for the first phase of rehabilitation of the Lawrence Turnhalle at Ninth and Rhode Island streets. Funding for the grants was included in the county’s 2014 budget. Of that money, 55 percent is earmarked for one or two major projects; 30 percent for smaller “tar-

four co-defendants in the spring 2013 storage-unit burglary case, assistant district attorney Jim McCabria said. “The number of crimes that were all related to this group of individuals are pretty extensive for Douglas County,” McCabria said. Suspects allegedly backed rented moving trucks up to storage units and emptied them after cutting the locks, taking so much property that they — and, after seizing it, police — had trouble finding places to store it. When charges were filed, police estimated the value of sto-

len furniture, electronics, sports memorabilia and other property to be about $77,000. Co-defendant Jacob P. Paine was sentenced in October for his role in the burglary ring. Cases against Travis M. Darrow and Cheri L. Sponholtz are ongoing. Nehrbass’ probation stipulates she have no contact with co-defendants, including Darrow, who is her fiance, Nehrbass’ attorney Branden Smith said. Kittel said the no-contact order would stand, at least until Darrow’s case is finalized and a probation officer can review the terms.

San Antonio — Two former officials of a San Antonio military medical center have signed plea deals to admit their guilt in a fraudulent scheme involving more than $7 million in military contracts. The San Antonio Express-News reports retired Army Master Sgt. Lawrence Peter Fenti, of New Braunfels, Texas, and Dr. Heidi L. Webster, of Manhattan, will plead guilty in court Thursday to conspiracy to commit wire fraud. The 42-year-old Fenti also has agreed to plead guilty to accepting a bribe, while the 50-yearold Webster will plead to giving him one. Fenti was the chief administrator for Brooke Army Medical Center’s radiology department and Webster worked at the center. Prosecutors say they steered contracts to two Kansas companies run by Webster that she registered as defense contractors.

Shelter gets grant for train safety education Topeka — A Topeka homeless shelter has received a $5,000 train safety education grant after two recent railroad track deaths of residents. The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that the Topeka Rescue Mission is among 21 public safety agencies and other groups nationwide receiving such grants from Union Pacific. A woman staying at the Rescue Mission died in May on nearby tracks in a suicide, and a male guest died in July in what was believed to be an accident. Rescue Mission executive director Barry Feaker says at least six people have been fatally injured on the tracks in the past 25 years. Feaker says the grant will be used to create educational materials and expand safety education efforts.

Dear Dr. Wes and Kendra: I’m a fifteenyear-old girl. My friends and I were trying to figure out this boy’s texts to one of us, and we started talking about how texting means something different to girls than it does guys. Like, we all sit around and stare at our phones, waiting for a guy to text he’s like, “whatever.” Do you agree with this and how do you clear up confusion, especially if it’s someone you like? Kendra: This sounds so familiar I’d swear one of my friends wrote it. Unfortunately, just as women in our parents’ generation sat by the phone waiting for a call, most female teens have, at one point, found themselves watching their phones for texts from the cutie they’re talking to. I’ve yet to find a surefire way to decipher guy-texts that often read like Morse code, so I enlisted the help of my boyfriend. Except, even he had a tough time translating texts like “cool” and “k” into meaningful communication. Together we came to the realization that such texts don’t mean much at all. Though we ladies attempt to read a romance into every smiley-face and long text, even those may prove insignificant in the end. If you’re wondering what he’s thinking, what truly matters to both parties is spending time in person. Yet in the age where technology rules, quality time has become a rarity. You can bet a boy isn’t counting the minutes between texts or scrolling back over your previous messages, trying to see what you really feel. He’s killing zombies on “Call of Duty” while you’re killing your phone battery waiting. So why not text the guy first or ask him on a date? Send a text, make your move, and then walk away and do something else. See a movie with your family or go downtown with friends, anything but sitting there Please see TEXTS, page 6A

Trauma-focused care office opens in Lawrence A mental health clinic specializing in trauma-focused psychotherapy recently opened an office in Lawrence. The Center for Healing and Recovery, which is based in the Kansas City area, has opened a branch office at 2001 Haskell Ave. Susan Miller, a counselor and trauma specialist, will staff the facility. Until recently, Miller provided counseling services through Lawrence-based GaDuGi Safe Center, a service for survivors of sexual violence. Before that, she counseled through Independence Inc., where the new office will be located. Among the services Miller will provide is assisting victims of motor vehicle accidents with their psychological recovery. Trauma resolution counseling coaches a person through a series of experiences that gradually returns the person’s nervous system to a state of composure. Miller also will provide trauma recovery services for combat veterans, crime victims and adult survivors of child abuse. Anyone interested in receiving services at the new Lawrence office of the Center for Healing and Recovery may call 816-407-1887 or visit TCFHAR.com for more information.

waiting. Wes: Kendra offers rich advice for a problem that I see exactly five days a week in my office, and which goes way beyond the texting revolution. Today, teenage girls and young adult women like to see themselves as unchained from a long history of sexual and gender repression. Then they hover over phones, anxiously awaiting a text from a guy that, when it arrives, amounts to one more version of, “what’s up?� It’s hard to see that as liberated. Like Kendra, I advise girls to get the texting expectations on the table early, followed by intentions, sexual boundaries and other key relationship questions. Unfortunately, such direct communication sends many young men into a frightened tizzy, generating texts about “not putting a label on it,� “just having fun,� and “not really being into commitment,� squelching any notion a girl might have about an emotional connection. Boy-texts often increase late at night, which most girls accurately perceive as booty-calls. Yet they often respond, generating more of the same, with little fulfillment. If you’re hooking up with someone, or even heavily talking, you HAVE a relationship with that person and some rules should apply. Saying something isn’t something doesn’t make it nothing. As but one of a hundred recent examples, a girl asked several times whether a guy’s text-absences meant he was not interested in her. “Just tell me,� she wrote. “It’s okay.� Several times he asked why she would ask such a crazy thing. “Of course I like you,� he texted. Then he’d go dark again. Two weeks after the third iteration of this peculiar exchange, she saw on Facebook that he’d moved to Texas. I suggest you and your girls get together and make a pact. From now until you’re 30, set a few expectations for boys and lay those out clearly. In response, guys can learn to send cute texts (and do cute things in real life) to try and get you interested in them. Or they can give their true love to “Call of Duty,� or maybe flee to Texas. Even if you lose a whole string of guys that way, have you really lost anything at all?

Deadly freeze setting records across U.S. Associated Press

Minneapolis — The coldest, most dangerous blast of polar air in decades gripped the Midwest and pushed toward the East and South on Monday, closing schools and day care centers, grounding flights and forcing people to pull their hoods and scarves tight to protect exposed skin from nearly instant frostbite. Many across the nation’s midsection went into virtual hibernation, while others dared to venture out in temperatures that plunged well below zero.

“I’m going to try to make it two blocks without turning into crying man,� said Brooks Grace, who was bundling up to do some banking and shopping in downtown Minneapolis, where temperatures reached 23 below, with wind chills of minus 48. “It’s not cold — it’s painful.� The mercury also dropped into negative territory in Milwaukee, St. Louis and Chicago, which set a record for the date at minus 16. Wind chills across the region were 40 below and colder. Records also fell in Oklahoma, Texas and Indiana. Forecasters said some 187 million people in all

could feel the effects of the “polar vortex� by the time it spread across the country on Monday night and Tuesday. For a big swath of the Midwest, the subzero cold moved in behind another winter wallop: more than a foot of snow and high winds that made traveling treacherous. Several deaths were blamed on the snow, ice and cold since Saturday, including the death of a 1-year-old boy who was in a car that went out of control and collided with a snowplow Monday in Missouri. It took authorities using 10-ton military vehicles known as “wreckers� until early Monday to clear

all the chain-reaction accidents caused when several semis jackknifed along snowy interestates in southern Illinois. The crash stranded about 375 vehicles, but there were no fatalities or injuries, largely because motorists either stayed with their cars or were rescued and taken to nearby warming centers if they were low on gas or didn’t have enough coats or blankets, said Jonathon Monken, director of the Illinois Emergency Management Agency. Others got stuck in the snowdrifts, including the Southern Illinois men’s basketball team, which had to spend the night sleeping in a church.

Senate to debate unemployment bill By David Espo Associated Press

Washington — The Senate plunged into an election-year session Monday that promises to be long on political maneuvering and less so on accomplishment, beginning with a slow-motion struggle over legislation to renew lapsed jobless benefits for the long-term unemployed. “I’m optimistic, cautiously optimistic, that the new year will bring a renewed spirit of cooperation to this chamber,� said Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., in the first remarks of the year on the Senate floor. Within moments, he pivoted, accusing Republicans of “never ending obstruction� to President Barack Obama’s proposals in the past five years. A test vote on the unemployment bill — the year’s first showdown — was postponed at the last

minute until this morning at the behest of Republicans, who noted that more than a dozen lawmakers had been unable to return to Washington because of bad weather. Democratic supporters of the three-month extension of jobless benefits said they were close to the 60 votes needed to advance the White House-backed bill. Their chances hinged on securing backing from at least four Republicans in addition to Sen. Dean Heller of high-unemployment Nevada, a co-sponsor. The bill would restore between 14 weeks and 47 weeks of benefits to an estimated 1.3 million long-term jobless affected when the program expired on Dec. 28. Payments, which average about $256 weekly, will be cut off to thousands more Victor R.

Baghdad —Iraq’s prime minister urged Fallujah residents on Monday to expel al-Qaida militants to avoid an all-out battle in the besieged city, a sign that the government could be paving the way for an imminent military push in an attempt to rout hard-line Sunni insurgents challenging its territorial control over the western approaches to Baghdad.

Enforcement aid

Sixth year often tough for presidents By Doyle McManus Los Angeles Times

Sharing acquisition information with the Lawrence police doesn’t seem like an undue burden to place on local pawnshops and precious metal deals.

R

equiring local pawnbrokers and precious metal dealers to report their acquisitions each week doesn’t seem like too much to ask, especially if that system results in more closed theft cases and fewer transactions involving stolen property. The Lawrence City Commission will consider tonight whether to approve an ordinance that would require pawnbrokers and precious metal dealers to upload a record of their transactions each week to a website that would be monitored by Lawrence police. The dealers already are required to maintain records of received property, so sharing those records with police shouldn’t be a major inconvenience. The police department will pay for the website subscription. Assuming the dealers already are keeping the required records on the items they acquire, it would be a simple matter to forward those records to police. A number of local property crime cases already have been solved during a trial period for the LeadsOnline.com system. Knowing that such a system is in place also should deter criminals from trying to sell stolen property — at least to pawnshops and precious metal dealers. Allowing their list of purchases to be checked against police records gives both dealers and customers more confidence that they are not dealing with stolen property. City officials have tried to smooth the path for this effort by meeting with licensed pawnbrokers and precious metal dealers to explain the ordinance and answer questions. It’s understandable that some of those businesses might be resistant to any attempt to add another requirement to their business. However, if the proposed system is as userfriendly as it sounds and will cost the businesses nothing except a few minutes of staff time, the benefits of sharing acquisition information seem to outweigh the inconvenience.

The sixth year of a twoterm presidency is rarely kind. The public’s initial romance with the president has faded. The brief momentum he thought he earned by winning re-election has faded too. The White House doesn’t set the agenda any more; events are in charge now. For many presidents — Richard M. Nixon, Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton — this was the point when the scandals took over. President Obama has run into his share of controversies, but none that quite reached scandalhood. (Does anyone even remember the IRS flap?) But the calamitous launch of Obama’s healthcare plan has had the same confidence-sapping effect. And if the past is any predictor, Obama’s plight is likely to get worse before it gets better. The midterm congressional election has almost always taken seats from the second-term president’s party, making his job even harder. So what are the chances Obama can defy the historical pattern and turn his sixth year into a success? The obvious portents don’t look good. The president begins 2014 with his popularity near an all-time low in every poll. The health-care mess has shaken voters’ confidence in his competence and his credibility, and those problems aren’t going away soon.

But the president has one bittersweet asset on his side: Unlike during his heady early years in office, expectations for 2014 are low.”

If the congressional election were held this month, Republicans might well gain the six seats they need to win a majority in the Senate and control both houses of Congress. Still, there are reasons to believe Obama’s Year 6 won’t be the disaster his critics predict. First, the economy is finally recovering in earnest from the Great Recession. A spate of forecasts have predicted growth around a healthy 3 percent this year, with unemployment slowly declining to 6.5 percent. Presidents get blamed for bad economic news — but they also get credit for good economic news, whether they deserve it or not. And if the recovery brings unemployment down, that will deprive Republicans of one of their main arguments for turning Democrats out of office. Another potential plus for Obama is that he has finally settled on a central theme that appeals to independent voters as well as Democrats: economic fairness. “Over the course of the next year … that’s where you should expect my administration to focus all our efforts,” the

president said last month. “The economy is stronger than it has been in a very long time; our next challenge is to make sure that everybody benefits from that, and not just a few.” In that vein, Obama plans to wage a major battle to raise the federal minimum wage to $10.10 an hour. The minimum wage is a classic wedge issue, with Democrats and independents supporting Obama’s position, but GOP voters divided. Obama’s other big domestic priority, immigration reform, works that way too. If he can steer bipartisan legislation through Congress, he’ll take credit. If Republicans block a path to citizenship for immigrants in the country illegally, he’ll make sure they get the blame — especially among Latino voters. The administration even has reason to hope that opinion on Obamacare, the Affordable Care Act, will shift as millions of onceuninsured people begin to use their new insurance (or their newly won Medicaid). Foreign policy could also provide a boost thanks to an event that has long been on Obama’s calendar: the withdrawal of most of the remaining 47,000 U.S. troops in Afghanistan. Expect a long series of homecoming ceremonies with flags, marching bands, tearful family reunions — and speeches by Obama reminding voters that he’s fulfilled his 2008 promise to end two wars.

From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Jan. 7, 1914: “The city of Lawrence will shortly bring suit against the county of years Douglas in the district court of ago Douglas county. The occasion for IN 1914 this suit is to be the possession of the old jail site on the river front at the corner of Vermont and Sixth streets. This piece of property has been a bone of contention for some time. The city is eager to again gain possession of the property which it once held, the county seems equally eager to hold the property and having the possession refuses to listen to the claims advanced by the city.... The city alleges that way back in the ‘60s it deeded the property to the county as a jail site. Since then the county has built a new jail and no longer uses the property for this purpose. The consideration was only one dollar, as the property had been laid out for public purposes and that the city could not sell it directly to the county.” — Compiled by Sarah St. John

The administration is also trying to negotiate a nuclear deal with Iran (difficult), peace between Israel and the Palestinians (even more difficult) and an end to the civil war in Syria (next to impossible). A win on any would be an unexpected success. Finally, 2014 is an election year, and Obama has always been better at campaigning than governing. The president and his allies will be trying to draw the sharpest contrasts they can — on the minimum wage, immigration, healthcare, climate change and everything else — to energize Democratic voters. So the year on Capitol Hill is likely to be dominated by high-decibel collisions, not bipartisan harmony. If tea party Republicans rise to Obama’s bait as they have in the past, the GOP could suffer in the eyes of many voters. There’s no guarantee, of course, that things will play out the way Obama would like. But the president has one bittersweet asset on his side: Unlike during his heady early years in office, expectations for 2014 are low. If he can survive Year 6 with a healthy economy, health care intact, the Senate in Democratic hands and no new disasters, that will look like success and enable him to live and fight another day.

KSU prof weighs in on social media policy By Philip Nel

On New Year’s Eve, the Kansas Board of Regents announced that they would be accepting “recommendations for amendments” to their new social media policy until April. While their decision to involve “representatives from each state university” is a welcome change (they passed the policy without consulting any faculty, staff or administration), “amending” this ill-conceived policy is a bit like hiring an architect after you’ve already built the house. It also means that the Spring 2014 semester begins under a cloud of unease. Faculty and staff at Kansas universities can still be fired for saying anything “contrary to the best interest of the university” or that “impairs discipline by superiors or harmony among co-workers.” In other words, until further notice, we: 1) No longer have freedom of speech. 2) No longer have the academic freedom required to do our jobs. 3) No longer have tenure. One wonders if the Board of Regents has read its own mission statement, which says the regents’ job is to “advocate powerfully” for “continuous improvement in the quality and effectiveness of the public postsecondary ed-

YOUR TURN ucational system in Kansas.” Instead of advocating for its quality and effectiveness, the regents have dealt it a severe handicap. How can Kansas universities recruit top-tier faculty to work at a place that lacks academic freedom? Indeed, why would faculty want to teach here at all? How can we teach, if we lack the ability to debate controversial ideas? This new social media policy creates an anxiety that stifles free expression. When any speech can be grounds for firing, we speak less openly, and, eventually, we perform this self-censoring unconsciously. The new social media policy creates what William Blake called “mind-forged manacles:”: We teach ourselves to suppress thoughts and ideas because we fear the consequences of expressing them. If we must suppress thoughts and ideas, we cannot do our jobs. This is not acceptable. The Board of Regents needs to repeal (or at least suspend implementation of) its original policy, and work with the workgroups it has proposed in order to craft a sensible policy that supports higher education in Kansas. — Philip Nel is a University Distinguished Professor of English at Kansas State University.

PUBLIC FORUM

Women’s touch To the editor: In the last paper of the year (Dec. 31), all three front-page stories were about extraordinary women: Saunny Scott, advocate for the homeless and those with disabilities who now fears losing her home as a result of a cut of her daughter’s disability payments; Lindsey Douglas, newly hired to help champion Kansas University during the crisis caused by state cuts to higher education; and Sandy Praeger, struggling to find insurance for uninsured Kansans because Gov. Brownback turned down federal funds to expand Medicaid for those ineligible for ACA plans. As I read these articles, I wondered about priorities … and gender. Why is it that many men in public life are willing to jeopardize the well-being of human lives for their political “principles” and many women in public life are focused on improving human wellbeing regardless of politics. Could it be fighting instinct vs. nurturing instinct? I hope we’ve evolved beyond that! We are fortunate to have a caring woman in this state working hard to bring health care options to the working poor, even though both hands have been tied behind her back. In fact all three featured women, and

a legion of others, are working hard to undo the damage caused by a governor and a legislature trying to make a “statement” rather than serve their state. Elizabeth Black, Lawrence

Praeger praise To the editor: I was so glad to see the nice article about Dr. Mark Praeger on the front page of Sunday’s Journal-World. His retirement is a huge loss to the community, but I hope that he has many enjoyable years ahead of fishing, traveling and anything else his heart fancies. He deserves it. I will always be grateful that he was still practicing medicine when I was diagnosed with breast cancer three years ago, not only for his great surgical skills but also for his kindness. Dr. Praeger personally called to give me the news following each test or surgery, even when it wasn’t good. When he asked if I had any questions, he actually listened. He was always reassuring and encouraging, but never hesitated to tell me the truth. So, Dr. Praeger, thanks for helping me get through one of the toughest times in my life. Enjoy every minute of your retirement, but know that you will be greatly missed. Diane Chrislip, Lawrence

Mangino returns to Big 12 — at ISU By Matt Tait mtait@ljworld.com

Tom Keegan tkeegan@ljworld.com

Look who’s sawin’ Locate that calendar on your desk or refrigerator, in your pocket or computer. Circle the date Nov. 8, 2014. It marks the day Mark Mangino returns to the stadium that the vast majority of Kansas University football fans wish he never had left. Don’t expect Mangino to do the same with his calendar. Hours after Iowa State announced that head football coach Paul Rhoads officially had welcomed Mangino onto his staff as offensive coordinator, the former KU head coach returned my message. As he talked, it became evident he was holding a phone in one hand to explain his move back to the Big 12, a saw in the other, steadily moving it back and forth. “This is my fourth Big 12 Conference school,” Mangino said, his words sending saw dust floating to the floor. “I can’t have a big game every week, so I treat them all the same. Every game is a must-win game in college football. “I feel privileged to now serve at my fourth Big 12 university. I’m the same every week, no matter what the game is or who the opponent is. I’m just not going to put too much into that. It’s our players against their players, just like every week.” Three of the four coordinators in the Nov. 8 game — KU’s OC John Reagan and DC Clint Bowen — worked for the Jayhawks’ football program when it won 28 times in a 35-game stretch. Since Mangino was forced out by former KU athletic director Lew Perkins with a $3 million parachute, Kansas has gone 9-39. Perkins’ hire, Turner Gill, went 5-19 in two seasons and was fired with three years and $6 million remaining on his contract by Sheahon Zenger, whose hire, Charlie Weis, has gone 4-20, two years into a fiveyear, $12.5 million deal. “I think it’s good that guys who have been on my staff there now have come back,” Mangino said of Bowen and Reagan, brought back to KU by Weis two years apart. “I think it’s good for them, and I think it just validates we were on the right track the whole time that we were there.” He said he thoroughly enjoyed his year at Youngstown State, where he served as assistant coach to Eric Wolford, but couldn’t turn down “the opportunity to get back in the Big 12 Conference.” Mangino worked under Bill Snyder at Kansas State and Bob Stoops at Oklahoma before coming to KU. “I have a lot of respect for Iowa State,” Mangino said. “I’ve always thought they did things the right way there. They’ve had some really solid success there under Dan McCarney and under Paul. Their football program has a reputation for having very hard-nosed, tough kids. I’ve always admired that about the program throughout my years in the Big 12. They’re tough customers.” They just grew a little tougher, the Nov. 8 game in Memorial Stadium a lot more interesting.

The second Saturday in November just got a lot more interesting for Kansas University football, as former KU coach Mark Mangino on Monday was announced as the new offensive coordinator at Iowa State. Mangino, who spent eight seasons in charge of the KU program from 2002-09, will make his first football return to Lawrence that weekend, when the Cyclones play at Kansas during the ninth week of the 2014 season.

Mangino’s return to the Big 12 was announced via press release from ISU. “I am beyond thrilled to welcome Coach Mangino to the Cyclone football family,” Iowa State head coach Paul Rhoads said. “He has an imaginative offensive mind, an ability to play to his players’ strengths, a track record of winning and a tremendous familiarity with the Big 12 Conference. In terms of calling plays and executing a game plan, he is top shelf. He has learned from a ‘Who’s Who’ of college coaches, effectively led his own championship program

and is respected throughout the coaching ranks.” Mangino spent the 2013 season as the recruiting coordinator and tight-ends coach at Youngstown State, his alma mater, after sitting out of coaching for three seasons following his departure from KU. In late 2009, Mangino was the subject of an investigation led by former KU athletic director Lew Perkins for improper treatment of his players, and the findings of the investigation led to his forced resignation.

KANSAS UNIVERSITY’S JOEL EMBIID (21), NAADIR THARPE (10) AND PERRY ELLIS (34) LEAVE THE FLOOR following the Jayhawks’ 61-57 loss to San Diego State on Sunday at Allen Fieldhouse.

Wife tells Self to heed his own words By Gary Bedore gbedore@ljworld.com

During various speaking engagements and interviews during the preseason, Bill Self warned Kansas University basketball fans to be ready for ups and downs as his young Jayhawks aged during the 201314 campaign. The person who knows him best reminded him of those sentiments Monday — a day after the Jayhawks fell to San Diego State, 61-57, in Allen Fieldhouse and finished the nonconference sea-

son with nine wins against four losses. “I actually got a text today from my spouse (Cindy) reminding me I said, ‘Enjoy the process,’” Self said Monday night on his “Hawk Talk” radio show. “I am frustrated. I am. I don’t think we are playing as well as we should be playing. I think every team has a ceiling. I am frustrated because in my opinion, which I’m sure all fans would agree, we’re operating well under that (ceiling) when you look at personnel individually. “But I am not discouraged,”

he quickly added, “because I think we can get there.” Winners of four of their past eight games after a 5-0 start, the Jayhawks will open Big 12 play on Wednesday at Oklahoma (12-2), a squad that started with an impressive 88-85 victory Saturday at Texas. “I told our team this today. There are three seasons in every basketball season: nonconference season, conference season and postseason. I told our team, ‘I would never tell you nonconference is not important while we’re going through the noncon-

ference.’ Reality is ... does everybody remember we won at Ohio State last year? I mean, no. They remember we lost to Michigan in the Sweet 16. That is the reality of it,” Self said. “The big thing is, hey, we want to go win league and go compete for championships and have a chance to cut down nets. To be quite candid with you, you can’t do that in the first season. You can only do that in the second and third. We still have everything in front of us. Like Please see HOOPS, page 3B

No. 1 ’Noles take BCS ————

Last-second TD sends Florida State to 34-31 victory

FLORIDA STATE’S KELVIN BENJAMIN CATCHES a touchdown pass during FSU’s 34-31 victory over Auburn in the BCS national championship game on Monday in Pasadena, Calif.

Pasadena, Calif. (ap) — Jameis Winston threw a two-yard touchdown pass to Kelvin Benjamin with 13 seconds left, and No. 1 Florida State beat No. 2 Auburn 34-31 to win the last BCS national championship game on Monday night. Winston struggled much of the night but was near perfect when the Seminoles (14-0) needed it most, going 6-for-7 for 77 yards on the game-winning 80-yard drive. A pass interference

penalty on Auburn’s Chris Davis gave Florida State a first-and-goal at the two, and on the next play Winston hit his big receiver for the touchdown. “I said this from Day 1 in spring ball. These kids are special,” coach Jimbo Fisher said. “This group never faltered. They wanted to be elite. They wanted to go to the top and there’s so much character in this group.” Tre Mason had given Auburn (12-2) a 31-27 lead with a

37-yard touchdown run with 1:19 left after Kermit Whitfield had put Florida State in the lead for the first time since the first quarter with a 100-yard kickoff return to make it 27-24 with 4:31 left. Mason ran for 195 yards. Winston was 20 for 35 for 237 yards and two fourthquarter touchdown passes. Nick Marshall ran for a touchdown and threw scoring passes to Mason and Please see BCS, page 3B

CHARLIE STRONG HOLDS UP THE “HOOK’EM HORNS” HAND SIGNAL during a news conference where he was introduced as the new Texas football coach on Monday in Austin, Texas.

ZACH JOHNSON HITS OFF THE 18TH FAIRWAY during the final round of the Tournament of Champions on Monday in Kapalua, Hawaii.

Zach Johnson wins TOC Kapalua, Hawaii (ap) — Zach Johnson is taking his place among the big boys in golf with two of the shortest clubs in his bag. On a Plantation Course at Kapalua that should be paradise for the game’s longest hitters, Johnson chipped in for his opening birdie and then hit four exquisite wedge shots on the back nine Monday to rally from two shots behind, close with a 7-under 66 and win the Tournament of Champions. “I just picked it apart,” Johnson said. That was pivotal on the back nine, where five players had a chance to win. Johnson ran off four birdies in a fivehole stretch, all of them with a wedge in his hand, none of the shots particularly easy. He wound up with a one-shot win over Jordan Spieth, the perfect way to start a new year. Especially after he ended the old one with a win. Johnson didn’t need any heroics this time, not like last month in California in the World Challenge when he holed a shot from the drop zone — with a wedge — on the final hole and wound up beating Tiger Woods in a playoff. Kapalua was mainly about chipping and putting, and Johnson is among the best. “Getting the ball in the fairway and giving my wedges a chance was crucial,” he said. “It’s about plotting my way, putting myself in a yardage spot that I know is going to give me an opportunity.” Former Kansas University golfer Gary Woodland shot even-par 73 Monday and finished 8 back. He tied for 13th with Brian Gay and Woody Austin with four-round 281s and earned $130,000. Johnson, starting his 11th season on the PGA Tour, won for the 11th time in his career. Since his rookie season in 2004, only Woods, Phil Mickelson and Vijay Singh have won more on the PGA Tour. It also was Johnson’s third win in his last six starts, dating to the BMW Championship outside Chicago in September that qualified him for this winners-only tournament in Kapalua. Spieth had a one-shot lead going into the back nine and thought only of making three birdies. He started way too late, losing three good birdie chances in the soft, middle portion of the back nine and then finishing with two birdies that only gave him a runner-up finish. He closed with a 70. “I was very pleased with the finish, being able to birdie the last two holes and at least have somewhat of a chance on 18,” said Spieth, who had a 100-foot eagle putt just off the front of the green to force a playoff. “But ultimately, 14, 15, 16 really kind of hit me hard in the middle of the back nine.”

New coach vows UT will be ‘hard-nosed’ Austin, Texas — Charlie Strong talked about being tough and winning championships. That is exactly what Texas fans wanted to hear from their new football coach. There’s little doubt he can deliver the first. The second part will determine whether he can revive a dormant program back and push it back among the national elite where the Longhorns are desperately longing to be. “It’s time to put the program back on the national stage,” Strong said Monday at his introductory news conference. “The mentality is always going to be mental and physical toughness ... We will be a hard-nosed football team.” That’s the reputation Strong brings to Texas, which has floundered since playing for the 2009 national championship. Four seasons of at least four losses and no Big 12 titles ended with Mack Brown exiting after 16 years, and Texas turning to the coach who led Louisville to a 23-3 mark and two bowl wins the last two seasons. Strong also had a reputation of being uncomfortable with the media, but with his wife and two daughters sitting in the front row watching him, he breezed through his 45-minute news conference with smiles and jokes before ending with the trademark “Hook’em Horns” hand signal for the cameras. “Let’s go win football games,” Strong said. “Let’s go win championships.” The 53-year-old Strong clearly has some of the same pages from Brown’s playbook. He embraced the legacy of Texas’s football tradition when he entered the room and hugged Edith Royal, the widow of former Longhorns coach Darrell Royal who won national titles in 1963 and 1969 and a share of a third in 1970. And just like Brown did when he arrived in 1997, Strong made a point of embracing Texas high school coaches and his commitment to recruiting the state’s best players. “We will recruit with fire, recruit with passion,” Strong said, adding he wants to “close the border” to out-of-state programs. Brown, whose last game was Texas’ loss to Oregon in the Holiday Bowl, did not attend the news conference. Strong said he spoke to Brown over the weekend and assured him he would be welcome around the program. But he also told Brown: “You ran your program, I have to run mine.”

COLLEGE BASKETBALL POLLS

UA men No. 1; Duke falls to 16 Arizona is No. 1 in the Associated Press college basketball poll for the fifth straight week, but for the first time in that span there are changes in the Top 25. The Wildcats (15-0) were still a runaway No. 1, with Syracuse, Ohio State, Wisconsin and Michigan State remaining the next four teams. Arizona received 60 first-place votes from the national media panel, while Syracuse (14-0) got the other five. Wichita State was sixth, followed by Baylor, Villanova, Iowa State and Florida. Duke, which lost at Notre Dame, dropped to No. 16, the first time the Blue Devils are out of the Top 10 since December 2007. Kansas University fell two spots to No. 18, and San Diego State jumped from No. 21 to No. 13. No. 23 Illinois and No. 25 Kansas State moved into the rankings for the first time this season replacing Connecticut, which had been 17th, and North Carolina, which was 19th.

Behind UConn women, changes While Connecticut remains No. 1, three new teams appeared in the Associated Press women’s poll Monday. N.C. State, Indiana and San Diego all entered the Top 25 for the first time this season. It’s been nearly seven years since the Wolfpack were ranked, 21 years for the Hoosiers and the first time for the Toreros. North Carolina State entered at 20th, Indiana was 22nd and San Diego 24th. The Hoosiers and Toreros are both still undefeated this season. The Hoosiers first game as a ranked team since Jan. 19, 1993, will have to wait because their contest at Purdue on Monday was postponed because of inclement weather. Notre Dame, Duke, Stanford and Louisville followed the unbeaten Huskies. Maryland, Baylor, Tennessee, Kentucky and South Carolina rounded out the top 10.

NFL

Pats put Spikes on IR Foxborough, Mass. — New England’s defense suffered another big blow Monday when the Patriots’ placed linebacker Brandon Spikes on injured reserve because of a knee injury five days before their playoff game against the Indianapolis Colts. Spikes has been playing with a knee injury for much of the season. He started but made just one tackle in the last regular-season game, a 34-20 win over the Buffalo Bills. The Patriots had a bye last weekend before they host the AFC divisional-round game Saturday night.

Wild-card games big draw New York — The NFL’s wild-card weekend drew huge television audiences. The four games averaged 34.7 million viewers for the most-watched wild-card weekend on record. The San Francisco 49ers’ 23-20 win over the Green Bay Packers had 47.1 million viewers Sunday on Fox to make it the most-watched wild-card game on record. The previous high was 42.4 million for the 2011 Steelers-Broncos game, which Denver won in overtime on Tim Tebow’s touchdown pass. But Sunday’s game had two exciting quarterbacks, history-rich franchises and the spectacle of a frigid Lambeau Field. It didn’t hurt that chilly temperatures across the country gave Americans good reason to stay indoors. The audience was larger than that for every NFC divisional playoff game Fox has broadcast and 13 of its 19 NFC championship games.

Seastrunk headed to NFL Waco, Texas — Big 12 rushing champ Lache Seastrunk is bypassing his senior season at Baylor to enter the NFL Draft. Seatrunk said in a statement Monday that he’s fully prepared to take the next step toward realizing his goal of playing in the NFL. Coach Art Briles says he appreciates “the dedication and energy” that Seastrunk brought to the team. The Oregon transfer played two seasons at Baylor, and was the first player in school history with two 1,000-yard rushing seasons.

BCS

SUMMARY Florida State 34, Auburn 31

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1B

Melvin Ray in the first half, and Auburn led 21-13 after three quarters. All-America kicker Roberto Aguayo’s second field goal of the night accounted for the only third-quarter points for either team as both defenses took charge after a frenetic first half. The powerful Seminoles trailed by 18 points in the second quarter and 21-10 at halftime, but picked up momentum in the third quarter with solid defensive play and improvements by Winston, who was fighting a case of big-game jitters. The Heisman Trophywinning freshman went 6 for 15 for 62 yards in the first half on his 20th birthday, with a key fumble setting up Marshall’s 4-yard TD run 5:01 before halftime. Winston also led a 66-yard scoring drive late in the first half and consistently moved Florida State in the third quarter — but with only three points to show for it. After trailing for the first time in any game since Sept. 28, Florida State needed a big finish to become the first team to rally from a halftime deficit to win the BCS title game. Marshall, Winston’s relatively unheralded counterpart, looked sharp in the Auburn backfield. Auburn was the nation’s top rushing team, but coach Gus Malzahn showed the SEC champs can fling it as well while racking up 232 yards of offense in the first half. Mason caught a 12-yard TD screen pass in the first quarter, and Ray ran alone down the middle with a 50-yard touchdown catch in the second quarter. Devonta Freeman had a 3-yard scoring run with 1:28 left in the half for Florida State, which faced

The 16-year era of the Bowl Championship Series ended Monday night in the Rose Bowl. There were fireworks and a trophy presentation and then someone turned out the lights on a colorful, and controversial, chapter of college football. The Rose Bowl hosted two games this season, the Rose Bowl and the BCS title game, but those days are over. Next year, the fourteam College Football Playoff replaces the BCS system.

Here’s how it will work: Instead of using a standing formula to determine the top two teams, a 13-member committee will select and seed the top four teams. Replacing the BCS standings, the selection committee will release four sets of standings prior to the final announcement. Instead of four major bowls, there will now be six, with the Cotton and Chick-fil-A bowls joining the rotation. These six bowls will rotate the semifinal games each season.

The semifinals will be played either on New Year’s Eve or New Year’s Day. The Rose and Sugar bowls will always be on Jan. 1 and will host the first semifinal games next season. The next season, the Orange and Cotton bowls will host the semifinal games on Dec. 31, 2015, with the Chick-fil-A and Fiesta bowls hosting the semis on Dec. 31, 2016.

every school in America, we’re starting 0-0.” Self pointed out the Jayhawks went 12-1 nonleague last year, but hit a rough patch in the Big 12 slate when KU dropped three in a row — to Oklahoma State, TCU and Oklahoma. “Basically, hopefully, and I’m believing it’s true ... because of the schedule we played we’ll be better prepared for conference season because things haven’t been masked, so to speak,” Self said. “That’s the positive spin I’m putting on it, but it’s the way I actually feel. I

feel we could potentially get more out of our nonconference schedule than we did last year.” He said the one negative in playing such a tough schedule is he has not been able to develop his bench as much while playing a batch of close games. “I am believing the hard schedule and the knocks we took will better prepare us for playing the season that’s far more important than the first season,” Self said. “If we could go out and win league, I don’t think anybody really will find a lot of fault with us losing four games in nonconference to three teams ranked in the top 15 (losses are to Villanova, Colorado, San Diego State,

Florida). Now if we don’t learn from this and go out and lay an egg in the conference season, I think people can say it’s been a crap season. I would be one to agree with that. “That’s not going to happen. We’ve got too good of players. They care too much. We’ll get it. We’re missing a little bit of something that is correctable.” In a film session Monday, the players told Self, “We’re not that far off.” He’d like to see more passion on the court. “It’s time for us to put it together. It’s time for us to play with a renewed vigor and enthusiasm,” Self said. “Our guys try hard, but there’s not that zest for playing that we’ve had. It’s personali-

final season, Mangino had many happy days in Lawrence. He led KU back to national relevance and some of the best football years in school history. His Jayhawk teams were 50-48 overall, played in four bowls and won three. He is the only coach in KU history to win bowl games in consecutive seasons (2007 and 2008), and Kansas was ranked a school-record 19 consecutive weeks between 2007-08. Under Mangino, KU also set home attendance records five years in a row and produced the top three total-offense marks in school history. During the 2007 season, Mangino led the Jayhawks to a 12-1 record and an Orange Bowl championship while being

fondly of his eight seasons in Lawrence. “I hold the University of Kansas in high esteem,” Mangino said. “I mean, I had a great time there. I had eight great years there. I had a chance to coach great kids; my wife and I still have great friends all over the state of Kansas that we keep in touch with and come out and visit. I don’t have any reason to hold a grudge or anything.” During that same conversation, the now 57-year-old coach talked openly about his desire to return to coaching at the major-college level. “I’m prepared, and I’m ready for it,” he said. “I’ve got the energy, the enthusiasm, the passion for it.

If you look at our team, the only time we’ve shown unbelievable emotion is when we beat Duke (94-83 on Nov. 12). It’s like there was such a joy. The guys love playing. They just don’t show it.

Auburn’s Angelo Blackson then swatted the ball out of Winston’s hand on a run moments after the Tigers missed a field goal, and Marshall finished the drive by turning the corner on Florida State’s defense for a score. A successful fake punt finally sparked the Seminoles moments later. Winston made a 21-yard run complete with a vicious stiff-arm to Auburn’s Kris Frost, and Freeman scored on the next play, trimming Auburn’s halftime lead to 21-10.

Nets 91, Hawks 86 New York — If only the Brooklyn Nets could get a mulligan on that 2013 part of the 2013-14 season. They are perfect in the new year, looking more like the team that was the heavy Atlantic Division favorite than the one that was 10-21 through December. “We’re undefeated this year,” swingman Alan Anderson said. “So as long as we just keep that rolling, man, we know we’ve got a couple of tough games ahead of us, but like I said, take it one game at a time, one practice at a time, and keep building.” Joe Johnson snapped out of a slump with 23 points against his former team, and the Nets matched a season high with their third straight victory by beating the Atlanta Hawks 91-86 on Monday night. Mirza Teletovic scored 16 points and Anderson added 14 starting in place of the injured Deron Williams as the Nets moved to 2-0 on four-game homestand that finishes with visits from Golden State on Wednesday and Miami on Friday. Despite yet another injury to a key player, the Nets look ready to test themselves against those powerful teams after matching their three consecutive victories from Dec. 7-12. “We’re going to have our hands full, but we’ve got to come with the same effort that we have since 2014 started,” Nets coach Jason Kidd said. Paul Millsap scored 16 points for the Hawks, who lost their third in a row to equal their worst stretch of the season. Jeff Teague also had 16 but shot 5-of-15 from the field. “We felt like we could (get over the hump) and a few things didn’t go our way,” Millsap said. “But still we fought to the end. At the end of the day, we’ve just got to work on our fundamentals.” Williams missed his 12th game this season after his ankle swelled Sunday. He will be re-evaluated Tuesday. But the Nets got solid guard play from Shaun Livingston, who scored 12. And they got clutch play from Johnson, who had been held in single digits in five straight games for the first time in 11 years — though he did hit the winning shot in one of those, a victory at Oklahoma City on Thursday that started the win streak. “Jason told me I was going to have to pick it up,” Johnson said. “And he told me in the fourth quarter when I came back in that he wanted me to be very assertive and make plays and kind of take over the game, which is what I tried to do.” He finished 10 of 22, making the go-ahead three-pointer with 6:21 remaining. The Hawks rebounded from a dreadful start to the second half to grab a 78-77 lead on DeMarre Carroll’s dunk with 6:38 left in the game. Johnson answered with a threepointer on the next possession, Livingston had a steal and dunk, and Johnson nailed another jumper to cap the run of seven straight points and make it 84-78 with 3:37 to go. Johnson, traded to the Nets in the summer of 2012, made another jumper with 2:12 left, then made a huge play after Atlanta had trimmed it to two, finding Teletovic in the corner for a threepointer and 89-84 lead with 44 seconds remaining. The teams meet again on Jan. 16 in London in what’s considered a home game for the Hawks.

Kyle Korver needed little time to extend his NBA-record streak with a three-pointer to 104 games, hitting with 9:11 remaining in the first quarter. The Hawks scored the final 11 points of the first half, capped by Millsap’s three-pointer with 28 seconds left, to take a 52-46 advantage. But the Nets stormed out with the first 14 of the third quarter. Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer angrily knocked his clipboard onto the court while reaching for it after calling one timeout, then was hit with a technical foul on a subsequent possession after redirecting his rage from his players to the referees. Anderson made a jumper and then consecutive three-pointers to cap the spurt and make it 60-52. The Nets led 7267 following three threepointers by Teletovic late in the third. Because of Williams’ injury, the Nets recalled Tyshawn Taylor from Springfield of the NBA Development League, hours after they’d assigned him.

48 Not near at all

Dear Annie: When I was a freshman in high school, I became friends with “Agnes,” who was (like me) something of a social outcast. Agnes still considers me to be her best friend. That was 10 years ago. We have both grown up to be very different people. I am repelled by Agnes’ lifestyle of promiscuity and high-risk behaviors. Although she is free with praise and is loyal in an odd sort of way, she is incredibly narcissistic and often condescending. Add to that a volatile and sometimes violent temper, and she is a person I no longer want in my life. Still, we have a history. When she says I am “the only one who has stuck with her,” I feel a responsibility to maintain the friendship. I am also fond of her 5-year-old son. I don’t want to be dishonest by pretending

that her decisions, her manner and her lifestyle don’t bother me. But if I tell her any of this, I know it will lead to a nasty confrontation. The truth about my feelings would crush her. Should I tell her the truth for my sake or continue the deception for hers? — Conflicted Dear Conflicted: It depends on what you want. If your goal is not to see Agnes anymore, go ahead and let loose. People outgrow friendships all the time. You don’t have to maintain this one, although it

‘Lost’ star returns to television Sawyer’s back! Josh Holloway (”Lost”) returns in “Intelligence” (8 p.m., CBS), starring as Gabriel, a Navy SEAL implanted with a supercomputer chip. The plot is as original and preposterous (and occasionally fun) as “The Six Million Dollar Man” or “Knight Rider.” The fetching Meghan Ory (”Once Upon a Time”) portrays Secret Service agent Riley Neal, assigned to be Gabriel’s minder and sidekick. She’s supposed to keep him out of trouble and from going on freelance missions to find his long-missing wife, but she’s soon game for anything his super noggin can visualize. Gabriel has the ability to assemble a threedimensional crime blotter and “walk” through it as he assesses evidence. He’s also adept at “seeing” satellite intelligence and drone surveillance in his mind’s eye. The special effects are undercut by comic book dialogue. Intelligence director Lillian Strand (Marg Helgenberger) has few lines that don’t seem wooden. In an odd touch, both she and Riley affect a rather awkward walk, as if to remind us that we’re in a land where the line between people and robots has become indistinguishable.

Tonight’s other season and series premieres

Laurie and Travis spark discomfort on “Cougar Town” (9 p.m., TBS).

Chicago up-and-comers embrace warm weather on “100 Days of Summer” (9 p.m., Bravo).

A mother of six wants a new life on “Escaping the Prophet” (9 p.m., TLC).

Job insecurity abounds on “Being Mary Jane” (9 p.m., BET).

A simple yet profound guy with abundant facial hair stars in “The Legend of Mick Dodge” (9 p.m., National Geographic). Tonight’s other highlights

“American Experience” (7 p.m., PBS, check local listings) presents “The Poisoner’s Handbook,” a look at the development of forensic chemistry in police departments in the early 20th century.

Coulson’s insight comes at a price on “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” (7 p.m., ABC).

Grave concerns on “Pretty Little Liars” (7 p.m., ABC Family).

Remy’s dark dream on “Ravenswood” (8 p.m., ABC Family).

A dying man becomes a “Person on Interest” (9 p.m., CBS).

Casey returns on “Chicago Fire” (9 p.m., NBC).

BIRTHDAYS Author William Peter Blatty is 86. Singer Kenny Loggins is 66. Actor David Caruso is 58. Talk show host Katie Couric is 57. Actor Nicolas Cage is 50. Actor Jeremy Renner is 43. Actress Lyndsy Fonseca is 27. Actor Liam Aiken is 24.

means you would not be around to show her son what a stable person looks like. But a true friend would tell Agnes gently and kindly that you are worried about her. In turn, Agnes, while not pleased, would accept your concern and not cut you out of her son’s life. Dear Annie: My husband and I have been married for two years, and we have been together for 16. This is my third marriage and his second. He is 61, and I am 58. I work out of the home, and he is now semi-retired. I would appreciate some help with cooking or cleaning, but he always says I wouldn’t be happy with the way he does it. I’ve told him this is a copout. We get along great otherwise, but he is such a horse’s butt about this. Just yesterday, he made himself a sandwich for dinner and nev-

er even asked whether I wanted anything. He doesn’t pressure me to cook. I do it because I know he likes to have dinner and I enjoy cooking. But I would certainly never eat in front of him and not offer something. Is it too much to ask for help with cleaning and cooking or to have my feelings taken seriously? — Hurt and Exasperated Dear Hurt: We think your husband is a little lazy and has been trained to be waited on. He needs to step up and be more of a full partner. Separate the household chores and assign specific tasks for each of you. If you enjoy cooking, you could do more of that, and he could do more cleaning. Ask what he’d prefer. If he doesn’t follow through, do NOT pick up after him. Or, if you can afford it, hire someone.
