When news came out that Sears was going to close about 100 Sears and Kmart stores across the country, commercial real estate agent Doug Brown didn’t need to see the list to know that Lawrence’s Sears store on South Iowa Street would be on it. “Anybody who went into the Sears building could see that coming,” said Brown, a broker for McGrew Commercial Real Estate. “Most days We’ve been you could shoot through these a cannon off in types of cycles there.” Indeed, Sears before.

Brownback has full agenda awaiting legislators upon return By Scott Rothschild srothschild@ljworld.com

TOPEKA — The 2012 legislative session that starts Monday will feature Gov. Sam Brownback trying to push through major changes in nearly all facets of state government. But those who take care of vulnerable Kansans, teach school children and advo-

cate for public workers are hoping they can get legislators to slow down the Brownback Express. That will be a formidable Brownback task. Brownback, a Republican, has a gale-force wind at his

Heading into his second year as governor, Brownback, a former U.S. Senator, has launched a far-reaching agenda to overhaul school finance, contract with private companies for all Medicaid services, install a 401(k)-style savings plan to replace the current defined benefit public pension system, and cut state income taxes. But on several occasions

back with a 92-33 party edge in the House, with most of those Republicans supportive of the governor’s political philosophy. Republicans outnumber Democrats in the Senate 32-8, but the only firewall between Brownback and many of his goals is a thin margin between so-called conservative and moderate Republicans in that chamber.

over the past several months, there have been stumbles. Both Republican and Democratic legislators, have found themselves at odds with Brownback and his team, arguing over not only policy but also the seeming lack of due diligence when the administration tries to change things. This includes the fight over closing state welfare

offices, including the one in Lawrence, making Kansas the first state in the nation to stop providing arts funding, and a proposal to move several juvenile justice programs to another agency. After public uproars over these proposals that have crossed party lines, Brownback has said he will propose

cession, state revenues have rebounded somewhat, totaling approximately $300 million more for the current fiscal year than what had been projected earlier. Brownback has said the state needs to continue to hold the line on spending because federal funding that covers the cost of much of state expenses is going to dry up as Washington battles its deficit. A recent manifestation of federal budget problems, he said, was the decision by Boeing Co. to close its Wichita defense plant. “That is why I am going to propose a state budget here that is a strong state budget to get us in a stronger fiscal position. We would not be prudent if we didn’t prepare for this,” he said. But advocates who have seen their budgets slashed are building pressure to loosen the purse strings to start restoring what has been cut. In a meeting with Douglas County legislators, Stacey Hunter Schwartz, executive director of Independence Inc., laid out the problem in one area. There are 3,369 people with physical disabilities who are on a waiting list for assistance that could be provided in their homes instead of having to go to a nursing home. The last person to receive the home-based services waited nearly three years. There are 6,082 people receiving this assistance, down from 7,200 people a year ago. “That’s a reduction of 1,200 persons, yet no one is moving off the waiting list,” she said. “Meanwhile, the state’s ending balance continues to rise to $318 million,” she said. The battle over social service and health care funding will be waged throughout the budget.

HAROLD H. HEINRICH

Harold H. Heinrich, 80, of Alachua, FL died peacefully in his home on 12/12/11 with his wife Sandy at his bedside. The Heinrichs have lived in the Gainesville area since 1988. Harold retired from Classification at the Alachua County Jail in 2003. He was born 6/4/1931 in Vinland Kansas, the youngest of five children, to Carl and Alma (Hoskinson) Heinrich. A graduate of Kansas University on a Naval ROTC scholarship, he served in the Navy during the Korean era. In 1952 he married Marlene Underwood, the mother of his two children, Ann and Steve. In 1972 he married Sandy (White) Billingsley of Abilene, Kansas and adopted her children, Cathy, Bruce, and Becky. Harold became a Friend of Bill W in 1973. In 1980 he left the business world to become an addiction counselor. The second half of his life was devoted to sharing his recovery and his faith in Jesus Christ. A kind and loving man, he touched many lives in his life journey and dearly loved his family and friends. During the last seven years battling serious health problems, his courage, patience and love were a witness to all who knew him. He was a member of Trinity UMC Gainesville

and was a lay speaker in the Kansas UMC Conference. His parents; siblings, Juanita, Louis, Margaret, Helen; and step-grandson Heinrich David preceded him in death. He is survived by Sandy, his wife of 39 years; three daughters, Ann Raw (Jerry), Linwood KS; Cathy Murphy (Shawn), Roswell GA; Becky Steinhauser (Neal), Bonner Springs, KS; two sons, Steve Heinrich, Lawrence KS; Bruce Heinrich, Topeka, KS; fifteen grandchildren; three great grandchildren; sister-in-law Mabel Heinrich Hagerman, Lawrence, KS; several nieces and nephews. A Celebration of Life service will be held January 18, 2012 at 11 AM in the Trinity UMC Worship Center, 4000 NW 53rd Avenue, Gainesville. His ashes will be placed in the Memorial Garden at Trinity UMC. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to The Harold Heinrich Memorial at Trinity UMC. A Memorial Service will be held in Vinland, KS in the late spring.

Associated Press

Eighty years after their Depression-era robbery and murder spree captivated the country, Bonnie and Clyde continue to fascinate crime and history buffs. At least that’s the hope of a Missouri family selling a pair of rare weapons believed to have been seized from the outlaw couple’s Joplin hideout in 1933. The weapons are owned by the great-grandchildren of a Tulsa, Okla., police detective who was given them by a police officer involved in the April 13, 1933 raid. The .45-caliber, fully automatic Thompson submachine gun — better known as a Tommy gun — and 1897 Winchester 12-gauge shotgun had spent the past 40 years in relative historical obscurity, stored in a Springfield police museum that didn’t acknowledge the cache’s pop culture significance. “People can’t get enough of Bonnie and Clyde,” said Robert Mayo, a Kansas City

auctioneer handling the Jan. 21 sale for the descendants of former Tulsa detective Mark Lairmore. “We’re fascinated by people who do bad things.” One of the owners, a greatgrandson also named Mark Lairmore, said the family wants to turn the weapons over to “someone with an appreciation of antique guns and the history behind these guns.” The original Mark Lairmore’s son and grandson have both died, severing any sentimental connection to the items, he said. Two law enforcement officers died during a shootout at the Joplin apartment where the couple and members of their gang were holed up, but all the members of the Clyde Barrow gang escaped. The police raid also yielded a camera that produced widely distributed photos of the criminal lovebirds, cementing the image of Bonnie Elizabeth Parker as Barrow’s cigar-chomping, gun-toting moll. Those pho-

stated desire to reduce taxes, specifically the state personal income tax, and overhaul the school finance formula, which accounts for approximately one-half of state spending. On taxes, Brownback said he will provide details of this plan during his State of the State address, which is scheduled for Wednesday. The governor has already released his school finance proposal, and that has raised alarms with school advocates. His plan would eliminate state limits on local property taxes for schools, provide a small increase to rural districts but no increase for most mid-size and large districts, and junk a system of funding “weights” to provide for children whose education costs more. “Our proposal is a modern formula that will provide districts the flexibility that is necessary to meet today’s challenges, prepare tomorrow’s opportunities, and excel in education,” Brownback said. Kansas Democratic Party Chairwoman Joan Wagnon said, “We believe the governor is focused on the wrong problem. The current formula doesn’t need to be fixed, just funded.”

Drawing new lines Meanwhile, the Legislature will engage in the once-a-decade task of redrawing political boundaries for congressional, legislative and State Board of Education districts to account for population shifts. As almost always, Democratic-leaning Douglas County will be in the crosshairs as the Republican-dominated Legislature decides whether to move Lawrence into one congressional district or keep it split as it is now. — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

tos, first published in the Joplin Globe newspaper, were the first public depictions of the couple. Both were killed little more than a year later by pursuing police in rural Louisiana. Mayo said the sellers have not set a minimum bid. He declined to estimate how much money the guns might bring at auction in Kansas City. David Eslick, interim executive director of the History Museum for Springfield-Greene County, is one observer who won’t place a bid. He said the weapons were never advertised as belonging to Bonnie and Clyde because proof of ownership had not been verified. “Without authentication, we can’t say for sure,” he said. Lairmore and his family, though, have no doubt about the origins. He noted that the serial number on one of the guns matches one listed as stolen in Ohio and described by a police officer who survived a Barrow gang kidnapping.

Gov. Brownback talks fracking in Oklahoma WICHITA — Gov. Sam Brownback made a pit stop in Oklahoma City to talk fracking en route to Texas for the Cotton Bowl. The Wichita Eagle reported that the stop gave Brownback a chance to meet with the leaders of two energy companies, SandRidge and Chesapeake. The subject of their meeting was a drilling technique known as hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, in which water, sand and chemicals are blasted deep underground to extract natural gas from shale rock. The use of fracking has led to dramatic gains in U.S. natural gas production over the past few years, but environmentalists question its safety. The Eagle says Brownback is looking to smooth the way for energy companies to do more of it in Kansas.

Kansas leaders pursuing 2 paths in next step

1 | AFGHANISTAN

Officials claim U.S. abused detainees Afghan investigators accused the American military Saturday of abusing detainees at its main prison in the country, bolstering calls by President Hamid Karzai for the U.S. to turn over control of the facility and complicating talks about America’s future role in Afghanistan. The investigators also called for any detainee held without evidence to be freed, putting the U.S. and Afghan governments on a collision course in an issue that will decide the fate of hundreds of suspected Taliban and al-Qaida operatives captured by American forces and held indefinitely. Karzai took Washington by surprise Thursday when he ordered that the U.S. military turn over full control of the prison outside Bagram Air Base within one month, a seemingly impossible deadline given U.S. security concerns about the prisoners and the Afghan government’s weak administrative capacity. The countries had been working on phasing a transfer of responsibility of the prison, which hold 3,000 detainees, over two years. Richard Gwin/Journal-World Photos

Romney brushes off criticism in debate Mitt Romney brushed aside rivals’ criticism Saturday night in the opening round of a weekend debate doubleheader that left his Republican presidential campaign challengers squabbling among themselves and unable to knock the front-runner off stride. Three days before the first in-the-nation New Hampshire primary, Romney largely ignored his fellow Republicans and turned instead on President Barack Obama. “His policies have made the recession deeper and his policies have made the recovery more tepid,” he said, despite a declining unemployment rate and the creation of 200,000 jobs last month. Over the course of the lively 90-minute debate, there were attacks aplenty as Romney’s five rivals vied to emerge as his principal rival in the primaries ahead. The former Massachusetts governor won an eight-vote victory in the Iowa caucuses last Tuesday and is far ahead in the pre-primary polls in New Hampshire. That leaves his pursuers little time to stop his rise, and, all but conceding New Hampshire to the former governor of next-door Massachusetts, they’re mostly focusing their efforts on the South Carolina primary on Jan. 21.

TOPEKA — Some Kansas officials felt betrayed when they learned Boeing Co. was contemplating closing its defense plant in Wichita, and the area’s congressman says he’s researching whether the company can be held to promises to bring thousands of jobs to the Sunflower State. But the state’s leaders Brownback are pursuing another path, too, insisting that Wichita still will be able to define itself as the aircraft manufacturing capital of the world even without the Boeing plant. Gov. Sam Brownback is promising aggressive attempts to attract new commercial aviation work — even mentioning Boeing rival Airbus. Boeing’s longtime presence in the Wichita area was a big part of the city’s claim to its title, and state officials were aggressive Boeing boosters over the past decade. As the company announced last week that its Wichita plant, with 2,160 workers, will close by the end of 2013, Brownback attempted to soften the psychological blow by predicting that the state’s aviation industry will emerge larger and more vibrant. “For people in Kansas, this

Officer: Drop charges in helicopter crash Charges against the sole survivor of a deadly 2010 Coast Guard helicopter crash off the Washington coast should be dismissed, an investigating officer has determined. Capt. Andrew Norris, in recommendations obtained by The Associated Press, said he didn’t conclude Lt. Lance Leone was faultless in the flight. But Norris said the charges against Leone — negligent homicide, dereliction of duty and destroying military property — focus on alleged navigational failures by Leone and tie those alleged failures to the destruction of a helicopter and death of two crew members. Norris’ recommendations will be reviewed by the Coast Guard commander in Alaska, who is not bound by them.

West Middle School’s garden program growing as Southwest begins to plot project By Karrey Britt kbritt@ljworld.com

The Community Mercantile Education Foundation partnered with West Middle School two years ago to start a garden project at the school. The project involved planting a garden that would produce food for the cafeteria and hiring students to take care of the garden and sell produce so it would be sustainable. The project was so successful that it branched out to two more elementary

schools, Hillcrest and Sunset Hill, the following year. Today, the Growing Food, Growing Health project is serving as a model for other schools, including Southwest Middle School, which plans to start its own project this spring. Trish Bransky, Southwest principal, said she has been in awe of what has been accomplished at West. “I think it’s amazing. I’ve been a gardener all of my life, and I’m impressed with the way that it’s set up. It looks nice, and it’s good instructionally,” she said. “I

think they’ve shown that you can have a viable program like this in a school environment, and it can be instructional and kids can be responsible for a lot of things.”

Still growing Last year, the Growing Food, Growing Health garden crew harvested 2,360 pounds of produce, 560 pounds of which went into the school’s cafeteria. The students also sold $3,823 worth of produce that went back into the project. In November, it sold sweet potatoes to Please see GARDEN, page 4A

McBride remembered Scheibler as a jokester on the basketball court. For a while he had taken to calling himself “Perfect Shot,” a play off his initials, P.S. Scheibler’s funeral in October drew more than 1,000 people. His friends and family said that’s a testament to the effect he had on people.

SOUTHWEST MIDDLE SCHOOL STAFF AND REPRESENTATIVES FROM THE MERC meet Thursday to discuss starting a large garden on two plots of land near the school.

the Lawrence school district for use in the Schwegler cafeteria. Nancy O’Connor, project director, said it was the first time that the district bought produce from a school garden, and the gardeners had to document their growing practices and fill out a lot of paperwork to make it happen. “That was really fun because we don’t get paid for all of the stuff we put in the West cafeteria, but it was symbolically important to be able to sell something to the district,” O’Connor said. “We are hoping to see more of that.” The Growing Food, Growing Health project has even bigger plans for this year. Among them: ! They are partnering with the Lawrence-Douglas County Health Department to start a student-run CommunitySupported Agriculture program. The program would be open to health department employees. In addition, there will be a weekly market inside the building where the health department is located at 200 Maine. The students will offer education and sampling in addition to selling their goods. ! They have applied to participate in the city of Lawrence and Douglas County’s new Common Ground Program. They hope to be able to garden on land owned by the city. O’Connor said if they get one of the 12 sites that are available, they plan to partner with another farmer. The city and county expect to name the grantees at the end of the month. ! They are organizing a new 5K run/walk in Lawrence to raise funds for the project. It will be in April or May and called “Running For Food, Running For Health.” “Our heads are spinning, but it can’t be a stagnate project because we haven’t done everything that needs to be done yet,” O’Connor said.

Southwest garden The Growing Food, Growing Health adult leaders also include Lily Siebert, garden coordinator, and Dan Phelps, grower resource. They have been meeting regularly with Bransky and Southwest’s garden coordinators Carol Thrasher and Perry Kennard, both teachers at the school. “They have been amazing in helping to get this off the ground in terms of their expertise, financially and so forth, to make it a reality,” Bransky said. Southwest will have two gardens. The vegetable garden will be located north of the building, and an herb and

DINNER FUNDRAISER Leaders and students with the Growing Food, Growing Health project, which involves gardens at West Middle School, and Sunset Hill and Hillcrest schools, are having a dinner to raise money. The dinner will be from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Jan. 28 at the West Middle School cafeteria, 2700 Harvard Road. The cost is $8 for adults, $5 for children ages 5-10 and free for those younger than 5. The meal will feature burritos or enchiladas made with sweet potatoes from the West garden. Students in Eudora High School’s culinary program will make a side dish using herbs from the West garden. There will be a salad made with local greens, and local chefs are donating desserts. Student gardeners will give a presentation, and there will be live music. All of the proceeds will be used for the school gardens. Tickets can be purchased at the door or in advance at The Merc, 901 Iowa. flower garden will be close to the main doors. There will be two volunteer work days to get the garden ready: March 31 and April 14. The school has received about $1,500 in grants for startup costs. It plans to have a display at the school where staff, parents and neighbors can donate money for items like tools, plants and gloves. Bransky said they plan to hire two students for the project. The goal is to provide produce for the cafeteria’s salad bar and to sell it in markets at the school. Southwest also is having a logo and name contest for their garden project. “Gardening is something that I am very interested in, and I think this is a great opportunity for our school,” Bransky said. — Health reporter Karrey Britt can be reached at 832-7190.

Kansas doctor, wife say attorneys had conflict By Roxana Hegeman Associated Press

WICHITA — New attorneys for a Kansas doctor and his wife convicted in a moneymaking conspiracy linked to 68 overdose deaths asked an appeals court to throw out their convictions, arguing their trial lawyers served as little more than “mouthpieces” for a patient advocate who used the case to promote her own agenda. Documents filed Friday with the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals argued trial lawyers for Dr. Stephen Schneider and his wife, Linda, had a conflict of interest that allowed Siobhan Reynolds, president the Pain Relief Network, to essentially direct the defense strategy. The couple’s new lawyers also contended in filings that Reynolds had a sexual relationship with an attorney on the defense team. Along with conspiracy, the Schneiders were convicted in 2010 of unlawfully prescribing drugs, health care fraud and money laundering at their Haysville clinic. The doctor was sentenced to 30 years in prison, and his wife got 33 years. The government also won a forfeiture judgment of $1.27 million, and the Schneiders were ordered to pay $114.7 million in restitution to victims. The briefs filed this week offered the first public look at the arguments the couple are raising on appeal. In them, the appeals attorneys paint Reynolds as a zealot who believed the war on drugs has transformed America into a police state in which the federal government let patients live and die in unnecessary pain. Her goal, they say, was fighting government prosecution of physicians for prescribing painkillers. The appeals attorneys contend Reynolds persuaded the Schneiders to dismiss their court-appointed attorneys

and assemble a so-called Dream Team of lawyers willing to take a stand. But they say those attorneys had a conflict of interest because they were actively representing Reynolds in other cases, and appeals attorneys say the trial attorneys wrongly shared confidential information about the Schneiders with Reynolds. Their brief also contends the doctor and his wife could have had stronger defenses had their cases been tried separately. In bolstering their conflictof-interest argument, the appeals attorneys claimed Reynolds was involved during the Schneider case in a sexual relationship with Kevin Byers, the lead attorney representing Linda Schneider. Reynolds, Byers and his mother were killed last month when a small plane he was piloting crashed in Ohio.

K.C.’s Black Archives finds a new home KANSAS CITY, MO. — A rare collection that details the history of the Kansas City region’s black community will go on permanent display in June, completing a recovery from financial and legal problems that had threatened its existence. The photographs, papers and artifacts of the Black Archives of Mid-America are stored in their new home, a former Kansas City Parks and Recreation building in the 18th and Vine entertainment district. The archives also have a new director, Doretha Williams, a Topeka native who has a doctorate in American Studies from Kansas University, The Kansas City Star reported The collection is now stored in acid-free boxes, lined up on shelves, in its new home. Researchers should be able to examine the holdings by summer. The new permanent exhibit is scheduled to open June 16. It’s a big change from five years ago, when the archives’ holdings were locked away in its former headquarters, prompting concerns that the collection could deteriorate. State archivists said some of the holdings were threatened by mold and mildew.

business will be Jan. 26. Then Sears announced it would close its store at 2727 Iowa, the only store in Kansas that ended up on the chopping block. The closing will mark the end of at least a 45-year history of Sears having some presence in the city. It also will leave vacant an 85,000-square-foot building, one of the larger retail vacancies for Lawrence in recent years. But the trio of announcements doesn’t seem to be sending up red flags about whether Lawrence remains an attractive place for national retailers. “We’ve been through these types of cycles before,” said Hank Booth, acting president and CEO of the Lawrence Chamber of Commerce. “I’m hearing from many retailers, especially the ones that make a point to be active in the community, that they’re doing well right now.”

. included recommendations to help retailers tackle that problem. A key recommendation was for the city to create a new database that would give local retailers access to important statistics about what type of product needs are going unmet in the market. Commissioners in February said they wanted to see a cost estimate for the database and would consider it as part of their 2012 budget. But when the 2012 budget was approved this summer, the issue never came up. Neither did a recommendation that the city help organize a new group of stakeholders that would pool its money to do joint advertising designed to attract outside shoppers to Lawrence. City Manager David Corliss said the items weren’t forgotten. Instead, he said, it became clear that the commission didn’t have a consensus on how active it should be in promoting retail issues. “The commission needs to decide what role it will have in promoting retail jobs,” Corliss said. “I think it has decided to a degree. It has said that our role is to promote the primary jobs and the retail will follow.” Cromwell said he largely agrees with that assessment. “We have to be careful with retail,” Cromwell said. “If we encourage one type of retailer to come to town, it can hurt an existing retailer that is already here. That’s probably the biggest reason we haven’t acted real strong on the retail front.”

Signs of a decline It wasn’t too long ago, though, that the health of retail in Lawrence was a major topic. In April 2010, the city appointed a task force to study retail issues and determine what — if anything — community leaders could do to help the retail scene. In early 2010, there were signs of higher vacancy rates in downtown Lawrence, and City Hall leaders were pointing to a key statistic that Space to show showed Lawrence was losDespite the recent aning more sales to other comnouncements, there have munities than it had in past been signs that the retail maryears. ket is picking up.

is tough,” said Carter Copeland, an aerospace analyst for Barclays Capital. “This is an aerospace center of excellence. There is a very skilled work force there that knows how to work in this industry.”

Broken promises? Boeing’s announcement that it will move work from the Wichita plant to Oklahoma, Texas and Washington wasn’t a surprise to Kansas officials because the company had disclosed in November that it was looking at closing the Wichita plant. But Kansas officials were upset because of the efforts they’d put into promoting Boeing’s bid for a contract worth at least $35 billion to build 179 refueling tankers for the Air Force. The Air Force had awarded the contract to a rival consortium in 2008 but came under pressure from Kansas’ congressional delegation and other critics to reopen the bidding process. Boeing won the contract in

February, and Kansas officials contend the company promised them that work would be done in Kansas — creating as many as 7,500 jobs with an economic impact of nearly $390 million. Nor was it the first time Kansas officials helped the company. In 2003, with Boeing preparing to launch work on what became its 787 commercial jetliner, legislators and then-Gov. Kathleen Sebelius authorized up to $500 million in bonds to help bring work to Kansas. According to the state Department of Commerce, the incentives eventually were tapped by Spirit Aerosystems, which took over Boeing’s commercial operations in Wichita. U.S. Rep. Mike Pompeo, a Republican whose 4th Congressional District in southcentral Kansas includes the Boeing plant, said he and his staff plan to examine the bidding process for the Air Force contract more closely. He said the company made “a very public commitment to the workers in Kansas.” “We’re going to go try to gather the data set so that we can understand whether the federal government got what it bargained for when it chose

A changed market Boeing has said the market for defense work changed dramatically in the past 18 months and its Wichita site, with 97 buildings and 2 million square feet, wasn’t competitive. After Boeing spun off its com-

mercial operations in the area in 2005, it kept 4,500 defense workers, but layoffs caused that number to dwindle. “Boeing was not utilizing that facility to its full capacity,” said Jeremy Hill, director of Wichita State University’s Center for Economic Development and Business Research. Copeland said with ongoing debates in Washington over the federal debt and budget deficit and the prospects for large spending cuts, even in defense, it has become clear that there’s too much manufacturing capacity among aviation’s defense contractors. During a Statehouse news conference responding to Boeing’s announcement, the governor brushed aside a question about the potential embarrassment of the company leaving Kansas after state officials’ efforts on its behalf. Brownback said he expects positive announcements about commercial aviation in the near future. “We are going to see more aviation work in the state of Kansas,” he said. “That’s the long term, and so all those investments have been proper, and they are moving us forward.”

GOP shift? Kansas Republicans will decide whether they want Kansas to become a more conservative state.

T

here’s no doubt Kansas is a Republican state, but for much of our history, the Republicans who rose to our top elective offices were moderates who worked across party lines for the betterment of Kansas. They tolerated many viewpoints and were willing to compromise with those who disagreed with them. Now, the Kansas GOP has shifted significantly to the right and, rather than work with their moderate colleagues, conservative Kansas Republicans are more interested in simply getting rid of them. An Associated Press story published in Tuesday’s Journal-World focused on efforts of conservative Republicans to defeat legislators — particularly state senators — whom they considered too moderate. The 2010 election swept many conservatives into state offices, but Kansas Senate seats were not on the ballot that year. All 40 of those seats will be up for grabs in 2012, and Democratic senators aren’t the only ones being targeted by conservative Republicans. They also want to oust moderate Republicans from their seats. Top-ranking senators like Senate President Steve Morris of Hugoton, Senate Vice President John Vratil of Leawood and Budget Committee Chairwoman Carolyn McGinn of Sedgwick already have opponents in the August Republican primary, and more challenges are likely. “There are many out there who believe the Senate is the final step,” said Derrick Sontag, state director of Americans for Prosperity. “What it would do for Governor Brownback is that it would push him to the right. It would make his agenda even more conservative.” Is that what Kansans, even registered Republican Kansans, want? Money from conservative, anti-tax groups like Americans for Prosperity likely will play a big role in this year’s elections. Perhaps even bigger than in 2004, when the organization spent more than $100,000 on a postcard campaign to oust Kansas legislators who had voted in favor of a tax increase to fund public schools. Among the incumbents beaten in Republican primaries that year were Rep. Cindy Neighbor of Shawnee and Rep. Bill Kassebaum, son of former U.S. Sen. Nancy Kassebaum, of Burdick. Would respected moderate Republicans like Nancy Kassebaum or Bob Dole even have a chance of being elected in the current political climate? Is U.S. Sen. Pat Roberts conservative enough to hang onto his seat? When U.S. Sen. Jerry Moran served in the U.S. House, he was widely considered a moderate voice for Kansas, but when he ran for the Senate two years ago, his campaign rhetoric seemed to make a decided shift to the right. The question here is whether the conservative leaders in the Kansas Republican Party truly represent the majority of Kansas Republicans. Although history would tell us otherwise, perhaps the political winds have shifted enough in the last decade or so to justify the party’s current conservative focus. If such a shift has occurred, then the chances are good that Kansas will indeed take what Sonntag called “the final step” to elect a conservative majority in both the House and Senate, clearing the way for a more conservative agenda in the governor’s office. So is Kansas a conservative Republican state or a moderate Republican state? Is a majority of the party moving to the right or are election results skewed because conservative voters are more likely to turn out, especially in primary elections, than their moderate counterparts? Those are questions voters will have an opportunity to answer in August primaries and the November general election.

Wealth redistribution is flawed policy WASHINGTON — Liberals have a rendezvous with regret. Their largest achievement is today’s redistributionist government. But such government is inherently regressive: It tends to distribute power and money to the strong, including itself. Government becomes big by having big ambitions for supplanting markets as society’s primary allocator of wealth and opportunity. Therefore it becomes a magnet for factions muscular enough, in money or numbers or both, to bend government to their advantage. The left’s centuries-old mission is to increase social harmony by decreasing antagonisms arising from disparities of wealth — to decrease inequality by increasing government’s redistributive activities. Such government constantly expands under the unending, indeed intensifying, pressures to correct what it disapproves of — the distribution of wealth produced by consensual market activities. But as government presumes to dictate the correct distribution of social rewards, the maelstrom of contemporary politics demonstrates that social strife, not solidarity, is generated by government transfer payments to preferred groups. This includes generational strife. Most transfer payments redistribute wealth from workers to nonworkers in the form of pensions and medical care for retirees. The welfare state’s primary purpose is to subsidize the last years of Americans’ lives, and the elderly are, after a lifetime of accumulation, better off

Most transfer payments redistribute wealth from workers to nonworkers in the form of pensions and medical care for retirees.” than most Americans: In 2009, the net worth of households headed by adults ages 65 and older was a record 47 times that of households headed by adults under the age of 35 — a wealth gap that doubled just since 2005. The equalizing effects of redistributive transfer payments is less today than in 1979, when households in the lowest income quintile received 54 percent of such payments. In 2007, they received 36 percent. Because Social Security and Medicare are not means-tested, the share of transfer payments going to middle- and upperincome households tends to increase, for several reasons. The retirement age is essentially fixed, but people are living longer. And because the welfare state is so good to them, the elderly are unusually diligent voters, and are especially apt to

vote on the basis of protecting their benefits. Beyond transfer payments, redistributionist government is itself governed by the law of dispersed costs and concentrated benefits: For example, sugar import quotas confer substantial wealth on a small cohort of producers already wealthy enough to work the political levers of redistributive government. The increased cost of sugar substantially penalizes consumers as a group, but not so noticeably that individuals protest. The tax code, government’s favorite instrument for distributing wealth to favored factions, has been tweaked about 4,500 times in 10 years. Generally, the beneficiaries of these changes are interests sufficiently strong and sophisticated to practice rent-seeking. Not only does redistributionist government direct wealth upward; in asserting a right to do so it siphons power into itself. A puzzling aspect of our politically contentious era is how little contention there is about the ethics of coercive redistribution by progressive taxation and other government “corrections” of social outcomes it considers unethical or unaesthetic. This reticence, in an age in which political reticence is rare, reflects the difficulty of articulating principled defenses of these practices. They go undefended because they are generally popular with a public that misunderstands their net effects, and because the practices are the political class’s vocation today. The big winners from these practices

are that class and the interests adept at collaborating with it. Government uses redistribution to correct social outcomes that offend it. But government rarely explains, or perhaps even recognizes, the reasoning by which it decides why particular outcomes of consensual market activities are incorrect. When taxes are levied not to efficiently fund government but to impose this or that notion of distributive justice, remember: Taxes are always coerced contributions to government, which is always the first, and often the principal, beneficiary of them. Try a thought experiment suggested decades ago by University of Chicago law professors Walter Blum and Harry Kalven in their 1952 essay “The Uneasy Case for Progressive Taxation,” published in their university’s law review. Suppose society’s wealth trebled overnight without any change in the relative distribution among individuals. Would the unchanged inequality at higher levels of affluence decrease concern about inequality? Surely not: The issue of inequality has become more salient as affluence has increased. Which suggests two conclusions: People are less dissatisfied by what they lack than by what others have. And when government engages in redistribution in order to maximize the happiness of citizens who become more envious as they become more comfortable, government becomes increasingly frenzied and futile. — George Will is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.

PUBLIC FORUM

Retiree taxes To the editor: There’s been a lot of discussion recently about luring additional retirees to Lawrence. I have a suggestion: My home state, where my mother still lives, offers a substantial tax discount against the property tax on the principal residence of a person who is over 65 (or disabled). That might help attract more people. One might object to this on grounds that it would cut into tax income, but that doesn’t seem to bother anyone handing out goodies to wealthy developers. Adrian Melott, Lawrence

Pay the piper

Voting laws wage war on poor So here’s how it is: You have no driver’s license because you have nothing to drive. You have no passport because you’ve never been out of the country. You have no other photo ID because you have no bank account. You work and get paid under the table, a wad of cash sliding from hand to hand. It is a life lived in the margins. And if South Carolina and a number of other GOP-controlled states have their way, it will be a life to which a significant new impediment will be added: you will not be able to vote. Over the holiday, the Justice Department rejected a South Carolina law requiring a photo ID — as opposed to just a voter registration card — for would-be voters. The department called the law discriminatory against African-Americans. Under the Voting Rights Act of 1965, South Carolina and other states and localities with histories of infringing the voting rights of African-Americans are required to get federal approval before changing their voting laws. This is the first time the feds have rejected such a change since 1994. South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley has blasted the decision as political. She probably has a point. The law would have disproportionately affected the poor, who are disproportionately likely, for the reasons outlined above, to lack photo IDs. The poor are disproportionately black, and black people are disproportionately likely to vote Democratic. It would be naive to believe

that did not enter into the thinking of the Obama Justice Department. But the inverse is also true. As similar voter ID laws are passed in other Republican-controlled states — including those that are not covered by the Voting Rights Act — it would be naive to believe politics does not also enter the GOP’s thinking. Though lawmakers swear their only interest is to combat voting fraud (which is not known to be a rampant problem), it is difficult not to feel their true intent is to suppress the black vote. Granted, race is nowhere mentioned in the voter ID bills. It was not mentioned in bills imposing grandfather clauses, poll taxes and literacy tests either. All were officially race-neutral, yet the intention and effect was to bar

blacks from voting. As Richard Nixon once said of his War on Drugs, another “raceneutral” policy that somehow victimizes mostly blacks, the idea is to target African-Americans while appearing not to. The Justice Department was right to block this law, but it is nonetheless hard not to feel a certain pox-on-all-their-houses cynicism as people who live on the margins are both targeted — and defended — for political reasons, but otherwise go unremarked and unrecalled. Democrats depend upon the votes of black and/or poor people, but do little to earn them — no jobs training, no criminal justice system reform, no attention whatsoever to the things that delimit their lives. Meantime, Republicans write off the votes of black and/or poor people and do all they can to suppress them. They are made mute and forgotten even as the public square rings like a cash register and monied interests ka-ching! their way into positions of power and influence with politicians on both sides of the aisle who are ostensibly elected to represent us all — even if we lack a photo ID. Corporations are people, we have been told. Poor people, evidently, are not. — Leonard Pitts Jr., winner of the 2004 Pulitzer Prize for commentary, is a columnist for the Miami Herald. He chats with readers from noon to 1 p.m. CST each Wednesday on www.MiamiHerald. com.

To the editor: The utter lack of integrity demonstrated by Boeing in going back on its promise to our legislators — that if they were successful in forcing a rebid on the tanker contract, Boeing would stay in Wichita and expand — is like that of the mayor of Hamelin in the story about the Pied Piper. The mayor and city fathers promised the Pied Piper 1,000 guilders if he would rid the town of rats. After the successful removal of the rats, the piper asked for his 1,000 guilders. The mayor then scoffed, saying, “A thousand guilders? Here take fifty.” Everyone probably remembers the piper’s terrible revenge. It’s too bad Kansas can’t do something analogous to make Boeing pay for its duplicity. Robert Casad, Lawrence

FRIENDS & NEIGHBORS BLAKE HOCKING, LEFT, got to meet and have a steak dinner with former Olympic gold medalist and threetime world record holder Bill Nieder recently in Lawrence. Nieder had always said he would treat the person who broke his record to a steak dinner, and he flew here from California. Nieder called Hocking several months ago to congratulate him on beating his high school record in shot put that had stood at Lawrence High School for 59 years. Hocking threw the shot put 62 feet, 9 inches — 2 feet farther than Nieder’s previous record. Carmen Hocking, mother of Blake Hocking, submitted the photo.

KANSAS GUARD TRAVIS RELEFORD GLIDES FOR A BUCKET between Oklahoma defenders Sam Grooms, left, and Steven Pledger during the second half. Releford had a career-best 28 points in the Jayhawks’ 72-61 victory over OU on Saturday in Norman, Okla.

Inspired by family, Releford sparks KU By Gary Bedore gbedore@ljworld.com

NORMAN, OKLA. — After hitting the showers and meeting the media, Kansas University’s Travis Releford traipsed back into Noble Center on Saturday to meet his own personal cheering section — one led by his grandmother, Rose Cliff, who lives in Wagoner, and seven cousins from Tulsa. “We’re very proud. He was excellent. He put on a great show for us,” Releford’s cousin, Brandon Armstrong, said after watching Releford, KU’s 6-foot6 junior forward, explode for a career-high 28 points in KU’s 72-61 victory over Oklahoma. Releford hit nine of 13 shots

overall, including three of five from three. He made seven of eight free throws while also grabbing three rebounds with two assists and two steals in 34 minutes. Was he extra fired-up playing for his grandmother? “Maybe,” Releford said with a smile. “She doesn’t get to come see me play much. Last year she came to a few (NCAA) Tournament games. That was it. She never has seen a game in the fieldhouse. “I mean, I didn’t say, ‘I need to come out and score points for my grandmother.’ It was nice, but I was only playing, doing what I can to help us win.” Please see KANSAS, page 4B

Jayhawks think fast, act faster

KANSAS COACH BILL SELF GETS FIRED UP on the sideline during the first half.

NORMAN, OKLA. — Not many college basketball teams have four starters who could hang with Kansas University’s four best players in a sprint-relay/ high-jump competition. Tyshawn Taylor, Elijah Johnson, Travis Releford and Thomas Robinson all can fly and sky, and all know how to finish at the hoop without drawing an offensive foul. They all enjoy playing the game 94 feet at a time. The work the four fast men did in transition to open the second half spurred Kansas to a 72-61 victory against Oklahoma in front of 11,268 fans at Noble Center. Trailing by a point at the half, the senior and three juniors

KU women drop heartbreaker to KSU By Matt Tait mtait@ljworld.com

If you’ve followed the rivalry between the Kansas University women’s basketball team and in-state foe Kansas State, you probably figured that K-State guard Brittany Chambers would play a huge role in Saturday’s Sunflower Showdown at Allen Fieldhouse. Bingo. Chambers pretty much was the difference in K-State’s 6357 victory against KU in front of a split crowd of 5,657 fans. But it wasn’t just her final line

that made Chambers stand out. It was the way with which she competed and the timing of some of her biggest shots. None was bigger than an offbalance three-pointer from two feet beyond the line that put KState up 50-47 with 3:59 to play and ended a 6-0 run by the Jayhawks. “She’s very bouncy when she comes off screens,” said KU junior Angel Goodrich, one of three Jayhawks who took a turn at guarding Chambers. “That’s what’s tough, because she’s got screens coming from left and right.”

Or, as KU coach Bonnie Henrickson put it: “In football, she’s one of those players that runs 30 yards for a three-yard gain.” In many ways, Chambers was due. In two games against the Jayhawks last season — both K-State victories — she combined for 7-of-23 shooting and 18 points. Saturday, the junior from Jordan, Minn., finished with 23 points on 7-of-13 shooting (including 5-of-7 three-point shooting), eight rebounds and four assists in 40 minutes. “That’s Brittany Chambers,” K-State coach Deb Patterson said of her star floor general.

“She makes circus plays, circus shots, and I mean that with respect — impossible shots in critical situations.” Chambers’ big three-pointer sparked a 13-6 KSU run that put the Jayhawks away. Of course, KU had something to do with that, as well. The Jayhawks (122 overall, 1-1 in Big 12 play) shot just 8-of-26 from the field in the second half (20-of-54 for the game) and were outscored 35-25 John Young/Journal-World Photo in the final 20 minutes. Misses happen. And the play- KANSAS’ ANGEL GOODRICH REACTS TO A ers acknowledged that. But one TURNOVER late in the Jayhawks’ Sunflower Showdown with Kansas State.

Report: Chiefs set to name Crennel coach The Kansas City Chiefs plan to retain interim head coach Romeo Crennel, according to league sources, ESPN.com reported Saturday. Chiefs officials could not be reached for comment Saturday, and a timeline for when theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll make an announcement was uncertain. Crennel has a good relationship with general manager Scott Pioli and is well-liked by his players. Crennel And the Chiefsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Week 15 win over the previously unbeaten Packers and their 2-1 record after Crennel was named interim coach also worked to his favor.

STATE COLLEGE, PA. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Sporting a Nittany Lions pin on the lapel of his dark gray jacket, Bill Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien took the podium, looked straight ahead and introduced himself with two quick, no-nonsense sentences. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel like Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a mentally tough guy right now. I feel like Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m the right guy.â&#x20AC;? And with that, the 42-year-old Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien, the New England Patriotsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; offensive coordinator the past four years, was off and running at his first briefing as Penn Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new head football coach, the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first in nearly a half century. It is his first head-coaching job. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is unbelievable,â&#x20AC;? he said. Actually, for many Penn State fans and former players all over the country, how this all came to be is exactly that â&#x20AC;&#x201D; unbelievable. Until Nov. 9, the Nittany Lions had been directed by the same person for 46 seasons â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Joe Paterno, who was fired that day in the aftermath of a child-sex-abuse scandal involving retired assistant coach Jerry Sandusky. The case also forced the school president to resign. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Replacing a legend, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard it a lot in the past few days. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not here to be Joe Paterno. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only one Joe Paterno,â&#x20AC;? Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien said.

Selby faces marijuana charge

TODAY

Memphis Grizzlies rookie guard and former Kansas University player Josh Selby is facing a misdemeanor marijuana-possession charge from an October incident at the University of Maryland, according to the Memphis Commercial-Appeal. Selby, 20, has been summoned to appear in a Maryland district court on Jan. 25, according to the Commercial-Appeal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have no comment about it,â&#x20AC;? Selby said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is what it is.â&#x20AC;? Selby was a second-round pick (49th overall) by the Grizzlies in the 2011 NBA Draft. This season, he has averaged 4.5 points and 2.8 assists per game for Memphis.

miss hurt more than any of the others. Just seconds before Chambers hit her gamechanging three-pointer, KU senior Aishah Sutherland watched as her driving layup rolled around and down the rim three times before popping out. Sutherland had scored two straight buckets to tie the game, and a third would’ve given KU the lead. “It was a bad miss because everyone expected it to go in,” said junior forward Carolyn Davis, who led KU with 19 points. “It was a little bit of a blow because it tipped the weight in their favor.” Saturday’s loss hit the Jayhawks hard. Partly because it came against Kansas State (11-3, 2-0) and partly because it followed one of the program’s biggest victories in years, a 72-67 victory at Texas on Wednesday. Asked if Saturday’s disappointment surpassed Wednesday’s excitement, Henrickson was frank. “I think so,” she said. “And you kick yourself because there’s some things you can control.”

MORE THAN 5,000 FANS TURNED OUT TO WATCH Kansas’ game against Kansas State on Saturday at Allen Fieldhouse. The Jayhawks fell to the Wildcats, though, 63-57. Happy homecoming K-State sophomore and Free State High graduate Chantay Caron played just her second game as a visitor in her hometown. In 12 minutes, she hit one of two shots and finished with

three points and one rebound. Caron talked about her second trip to Allen Fieldhouse as an outsider. “I am still always nervous when I come back to Lawrence,” she said. “When I

come, I expect a lot of emotion. All of my family is here, and I know I have to put that aside and come in and play my game.” For the year, Caron is averaging 3.3 points and 3.0 rebounds per contest.

Releford catches Sooners by surprise By Jesse Newell jnewell@ljworld.com

NORMAN, OKLA. — Kansas University forward Travis Releford made quite an impression on Oklahoma’s players and coaches following his 28-point effort in KU’s 72-61 victory on Saturday at Noble Center. “He made shots from everywhere and attacked and finished at the line. Big game for him,” OU coach Lon Kruger said. “They’ve got a lot of different guys that can do that on different nights, and that’s one of the things that makes them very tough.” Releford came into the game as KU’s fourth-leading scorer at 8.8 points per contest.

“In the Big 12, you pay attention to scouting report, but everybody can play,” OU guard Sam Grooms said. “As much as you say, ‘Yeah, we’re worried about Thomas Robinson. We’re worried about Tyshawn Taylor. We’re worried about the big-men guys,’ you still have to be worried about the guys that don’t get as much publicity as everyone else, because they make plays. He played well.” Releford’s 28 points were the most scored by an opponent against Oklahoma this year. The previous high was Santa Clara’s Evan Rocquemore, who posted 27 points on Nov. 25.

to have open shots will do,” Grooms said. “He made shots, and that helped his team out a lot.” Oklahoma (10-4, 0-2 Big 12) actually led, 34-33, at halftime before struggling to start the second half. Kansas scored 23 of the first 27 points after intermission. “We opened up very careless with the ball right there, which gave them a little margin,” Kruger said. “Not only did we turn it over, we turned it over with them shooting laOKLAHOMA COACH LON KRUGER PROTESTS A CALL during yups, which is the worst of the first half. both worlds.” Grooms said Oklahoma Releford made nine of 13 “He played hard, and he didn’t play as hard in the secshots and three of five three- did exactly what any player ond half as it could have. pointers. in the Big 12 that’s allowed “We started off great (in

the first half), and we did everything that we were asked to do. We rebounded. We were intense. The crowd was into it,” Grooms said. “And I think once they hit a couple of baskets, we went downhill. “We started getting down on ourselves rather than being up.” Oklahoma forward Romero Osby noticed the same drop in energy after the first half. “We seemed very active, and that’s a fun way to play,” Osby said. “But in the second half, we got stagnant. We started standing around a little too much on both ends of the court, and we let it slip away from us.”

KANSAS FORWARD THOMAS ROBINSON GETS CAUGHT IN MIDAIR by an official while trying to celebrate a Jayhawk run with teammate Tyshawn Taylor during the second half. KU beat OU, 72-61, Saturday in Norman, Okla.

Taylor Twitter-spars ————

Guard shares frustrations in tweets Noble Center. “Everybody is entitled to their own opinion. So am I. My response to the million people who hit me up ... I don’t respond to criticism from somebody who is not in my position. They don’t really know what it takes to be a point guard at this level. I appreciate the fan support. I love our fans. They are the best fans in the country. “Some give it a bad name sometimes. A lot of people are really opinionated. Twitter is to voice opinions. That’s what I did. I didn’t try to disrespect anybody like people do me. I didn’t use any language. I felt I handled it pretty well. I can handle it better by not responding, but that’s tough to do sometimes,” he added, laughing. Self said he wouldn’t remove Taylor’s Twitter privileges. “I’m not going to cut it off. He has to learn to deal with some stuff,” Self said. “Next time, if there is any issue at all, it will be cut off. If he had said anything negative about the program (or used derogatory language), I would cut it off.” Self said Taylor must understand, “You can’t be thinskinned to play quarterback at Notre Dame or point guard at Kansas. “It is frustrating. For him to be a senior ... for him to start four years and hasn’t learned that Kansas basketball

... everything you do is magnified. That’s the thing that is frustrating.” Self gave Taylor a piece of advice on the phone Friday night. “I said, ‘When are you going to learn that the only way you want people to talk good about you is let your play do your talking?’” Self said. “The more you talk, the more you act like a little spoiled brat. It bothers me that in today’s times — (when) we live in a social media world — that he is so concerned what people are saying all the time. “He is probably the most criticized player we’ve had since we’ve been here. Still, he brings a lot of that on himself. The more he does things like this, the more people are going to do it,” Self added of people trying to get under his skin. “I said, ‘You’ve got to let your play do your talking.’” Taylor said he’s going to stop sparring with KU fans on Twitter. “It all got taken down,” he said. “I feel being in my position it can get blown out of proportion. I don’t think it had to (be taken down), honestly, just for the sake of staying out of trouble. I don’t want to get in trouble over something so dumb, responding. I’m going to leave it alone. We’re playing well. I’m happy with our team, the way things are going.”

He means the players Oklahoma came out of the haven’t figured it out yet.

Self recruits quick, fast athletes, teaches them how to play great team defense and lets them enjoy the game by turning the fruits of that defense into fast-break baskets. Based on how well the Jayhawks defended during the decisive stages of the two conference games, the identity crisis is in the past. If it resurfaces, clicking the play button on the first 11:39 of the second half should serve as ample reminder. This team, more than most of Self’s, will need to embrace that identity aggressively because it can’t bank on searing long-range shooting. After going 4-for-19 on three-pointers (.641 from inside the arc) Saturday, KU came out of the game with a season .346 long-distance accuracy rate. The more efficiently Kansas can guard and run, the less reliant the Jayhawks become on having to hope they can get hot from beyond the arc. The former is a realistic path to an eighth consecutive Big 12 title, the latter a long-shot approach.

NORMAN, OKLA. — Kansas University senior guard Tyshawn Taylor entered into a brief war of words on Twitter with some of his most vocal critics Friday night. Taylor basically told some KU fans who are unhappy with his play that he didn’t take kindly to criticism from those who do not play or coach college basketball. He wrote: “If half (of the people) that talk about ball could actually ball ... I’d appreciate y’all comments and criticism more, but y’all can’t Taylor do stuck to being a fan.” He also wrote: “Once again I repeat ... if you can go out there and lace ’em up ... I’ll accept the constructive criticism ... but since y’all cant well ... yeah.” He removed the comments Friday night after speaking with coach Bill Self, who cellphoned Taylor after being informed of the controversial Twitter bickering. “A lot of people don’t like me as a player,” Taylor said after KU’s 72-61 victory over Oklahoma on Saturday in

Baylor (15-0, 2-0 Big 12) continued the best start in school history but had to work to do it against a feisty Iowa State team that played deliberately and milked the shot clock.

NFL PLAYOFFS

Texans trip Bengals, 31-10 HOUSTON (AP) — The Houston Texans turned to their kids, then to their stars to win the first playoff appearance in franchise history, a 31-10 rout of the bungling Cincinnati Bengals. Rookie J.J. Watt’s leaping interception return for a touchdown late in the first half propelled the Texans in Saturday’s AFC wild-card game. Third-string quarterback T.J. Yates, another rookie pressed into action, then threw a 40-yard touchdown pass to Andre Johnson in the third quarter, and Arian Foster followed with his second touchdown of the game, a 42-yard run in the fourth quarter, to finish off the Bengals. After nine seasons of missing the playoffs, the AFC South champion Texans (116) are heading to AFC North winner Baltimore (12-4) a week from today. “This is a special day,” Houston coach Gary Kubiak said. Watt returned the first of rookie Andy Dalton’s three interceptions 29 yards for a score that broke a 10-all tie with 52 seconds left in the half. Yates then hit Johnson on a TD pass late in the third quarter, and Foster added his long scoring run to close out the scoring. Cincinnati was in the playoffs for the third time in seven seasons, but the Bengals (9-8) haven’t advanced since beating the Houston Oilers following the 1990 season. Foster scored on an eight-

yard run in the first quarter to tie the score at 7, and finished with 153 yards on 24 carries. Dalton was 24-of-42 for 257 yards, while Yates was 11-of-20 for 159 yards in the first playoff game in the Super Bowl era matching two rookie quarterbacks. As the final seconds ticked away, Kubiak walked down the sideline wearing a broad smile and smacked hands with players and assistant coaches.

He embraced Johnson — the franchise’s best player — in a moment that was a decade in the making. And two rookies helped make it happen. Houston took Watt with the 11th overall pick in last year’s draft, a cornerstone for the reconstruction of the Texans defense. He started all 16 games and led the team with 13 tackles for loss. But he’d never picked off a pass. Watt saw this one coming, measuring his jump when Dalton dropped back and snatching the ball with both hands. He sprinted to the end zone as the capacity crowd exploded, and he raised both hands after reaching the end zone. Watt became the sixth defensive linemen to return an interception for a touchdown in postseason history — excluding the Super Bowl — and the first rookie to do it. “He’s been exceptional,” Kubiak said. “He’s played like a four- or five-year player. That was a huge play. That got us a lot of momentum going into halftime.” Dalton, meanwhile, rolled his eyes and shook his head as he walked to the Cincinnati bench and watched the replay on the giant scoreboard. It was just his second interception in his last seven games. The Bengals outplayed the Texans for most of the first half before that, holding down Houston’s offense and controlling time of possession.

Brees, Saints paste Lions, 45-28 NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Drew Brees and the Saints keep pouring on the points, rolling up the wins and rewriting the record books, too. Brees led an unstoppable offense by throwing for 466 yards and three touchdowns, and New Orleans poured it on in the second half for a 45-28 NFC wild-card victory over the Detroit Lions on Saturday night. New Orleans broke the postseason mark for total yards with 626, beating the record set 49 years ago. Brees hit on 33 of 43 passes while throwing for the most yards in a regulation playoff game. He highlighted his night with three completions of at least 40 yards. “We just focus on winning. We’re not focused on yards and records,” Saints coach Sean Payton said. “I’m serious when I say that.” As usual, the quarterback had plenty of help from an offense that set an NFL record for yards from scrimmage this season (7,474). The Saints (14-3) will travel to San Francisco (13-3) for next Saturday’s second-round game. Matthew Stafford threw for 380 yards and three TDs for the Lions (10-7), who simply could not keep pace in their first playoff appearance since 1999. They have lost seven straight postseason games. All-Pro receiver Calvin Johnson had 12 receptions for 211 yards and two touchdowns in his playoff debut for Detroit, but that was not

nearly enough as the Saints’ defense responded in the fourth quarter with two interceptions by Jabari Greer. The teams combined for 1,083 yards, tying an NFL playoff record set by Buffalo and Miami on Dec. 30, 1995.

Pierre Thomas rushed for 66 yards and one touchdown, while Sproles added 51 yards, two scores and several other clutch plays. Marques Colston overcame an early fumble with seven catches for 120 yards, including a 40-yarder to set up Jimmy Graham’s short TD grab. Robert Meachem had four catches for 111 yards, including a 56-yard score. Devery Henderson added a 41-yard touchdown reception. New Orleans showed guts and got a little good fortune on a decisive 14-play, 80-yard scoring drive in the fourth quarter. The Saints ran Sproles around left end on fourth-andfour at the Lions 40 and gained three yards. Soon after, Brees’ pass as he was clobbered by Nick Fairley went right through the hands of defensive back Aaron Berry. Berry would regret that drop two plays later as Sproles bolted 17 yards to make it 31-21. Stafford tried to get some of that back quickly, throwing deep for Titus Young, but Greer ran under it and picked it off. Four plays later, Brees spotted Meachem behind blown coverage for his long score to make it 38-21. The Lions became only the second visiting team all year to lead at halftime in the Superdome. “So going into halftime at a deficit, we just realized, ‘Listen, just bear down, one play at a time, one drive at a time,’” Brees said.

Rishaad Wimbley ran for two scores for SMU (8-5), which tied a school record by playing in its third straight bowl under coach June Jones. McDermott completed 16 of 26 passes for 239 yards and a touchdown, to Darius Johnson early in the first. Pittsburgh (6-7) was held without a first down and fell behind 21-0 in the first quarter. Kevin Harper kicked field goals of 32 and 34 yards. The Panthers were

coached by defensive coordinator Keith Patterson, who took over after Todd Graham left to coach at Arizona State. Pittsburgh’s newly hired coach, former Wisconsin offensive coordinator Paul Chryst, flew into Birmingham on Saturday and watched the game from the press box level. Chryst visited with Pitt alumni and fans before the game. He said he wanted to maintain a respectful distance from the team until the game ended, signaling the start of his era. “This is the culmination of their season,” Chryst said. “This wasn’t me.”

HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL

Rockhurst wears down already-fatigued LHS

THE DEALS ARE ON

By Corey Thibodeaux cthibodeaux@ljworld.com

Rockhurst wasn’t the type of team that Lawrence High wanted to play 24 hours after Friday’s match-up with Olathe Northwest. With tired legs and facing a physically imposing opponent, the Lions fell to the Hawklets, 63-45, on Saturday at LHS. “Their offense really wears you down,” Lawrence senior guard Logan Henrichs said. Henrichs said trying to focus and compete from behind expended what energy the Lions had left. Lawrence players also ran into constant screens and had to deal with big men relentlessly attacking the boards. Considering the opponents, coach Mike Lewis said his team played well both Friday and Saturday. And LHS (4-3) wasn’t completely out of it against Rockhurst (9-2). The game was mostly lost on tough breaks. “We had a lot of shots go in and out, and we needed those to give us momentum,” Lewis said. After a second quarter in which the Hawklets outscored the Lions, 11-2, LHS was in catch-up mode. The Lions made a 9-2 run to close the third quarter and bring the deficit to six. Then, in the first minute of the fourth quarter, the Hawklets scored nine unanswered points to break the game wide-open. That wasn’t the way Lewis drew it up during the intermission. “The game was pretty physical, and we weren’t going to give away any easy layups,” Lewis said. “Sure enough, they make a quick layup, then we turn it over, and they hit a three.” Several of the key players

LAWRENCE HIGH SENIOR ANTHONY BUFFALOMEAT (25) SHOOTS OVER Rockhurst forward Kyle Wolf during the Lions’ game against the Hawklets on Saturday at LHS. for LHS struggled, mostly because of Rockhurst’s inside presence. Lions senior forward Anthony Buffalomeat, who scored 20 points Friday, disappeared at times and finished with just four points. Senior guard KJ Pritchard made a couple of threes, but couldn’t find room in the lane to create enough plays. He finished with eight points. Henrichs said players needed motivation to fight through the fatigue at times. “We were talking about it throughout the game — about how tired we were, and how we had to pick each other up,” Henrichs said. Compared to the rest of his team, Henrichs was somewhat rested because of an injury he sustained Friday. He had to sit out late against Olathe Northwest after he hit his head on the floor, and the team thought it might be a concussion. Henrichs went to the doctor, who determined it wasn’t a concussion, and he was cleared to play against Rockhurst. He did some shooting

Whether it was a loose ball or an open shot, the game just went in Rockhurst’s favor. “Like I was saying in the locker room,” Henrichs said, “the ball was just rolling right into their hands.” The boys will a have a little rest until their next game at 7 p.m. Tuesday against Shawnee Mission Northwest.

Seabury boys lose ‘dogfight’ SAVE in Funtarov’s Seahawks debut J-W Staff Reports

Georgi Funtarov scored 17 points in his Seabury Academy debut, but the Seahawks fell to St. James, 50-38, in high school boys basketball Saturday night at Seabury. “It was a dogfight,” said Seabury coach Ashley Battles, whose team was tied with St. James 22-all at halftime.

Khadre Lane scored nine points, and Garrett Gillett added eight points for Seabury. “The best player on the floor for us was Jesse May,” Battles said. “It’s strange. He scored zero points, and the guy he was guarding scored 19 points. But he really guarded him well. He did a great job. He really did.”

Veritas boys make late run, win, 49-45 J-W Staff Reports

EUDORA — Veritas Christian turned a four-point fourthquarter deficit into a fourpoint high school boys basketball victory against St. Mary’s on Saturday, 49-45. “They outplayed us for most for most of the game,” Veritas coach Gary Hammer said. “It was an ugly win.

There were a few minutes in the fourth quarter where we really turned it on.” Thomas Bachert led Veritas with 14 points, followed by Elijah Penny with 11 and Caleb Holland with 10. “Bachert played a really strong inside game for us,” Hammer said. “His rebounding and inside defense have been big for us.”

Veritas overcame eight three-pointers by St. Mary’s. The Eagles (7-3) will play Cair Paravel on Monday in Topeka. St. Mary’s 13 10 16 6 — 45 Veritas 15 10 10 14 — 49 St. Mary’s — Fletcher 2, Pedersen 11, Hohman 28, Christensen 4.

BRIEFLY FSHS, LHS finish Lawrence wrestling tops at swim invite takes second place SHAWNEE — Free State’s Canaan Campbell and Lawrence High’s Zach Andregg tied for first place in the 500yard freestyle Saturday as their teams took the top two spots at the Shawnee Mission Northwest Swimming and Diving Invitational. The Firebirds won with 321.5 points, and the Lions took second with a score of 286.5. Third-place St. Thomas Aquinas finished more than 100 points behind, with 177. FSHS swimmers placed first in eight of the 12 events at the meet. Free State diver Dan Krieger qualified for state with his fourth-place finish in the meet.

MAIZE — Lawrence High seniors Reece Wright-Conklin and Brad Wilson, junior Hunter Haralson and freshman Tristan Star took first place in their respective weight classes at the Maize Tournament on Saturday. As a team, the Lions placed second with 261 points — just 13.5 points behind first-place Andale. LHS coach Pat Naughton said he was encouraged by his team’s performance after the monthlong holiday layoff, but he thinks the team could have picked up a few more points and taken the top spot. “In order to win a state championship, you have to score points, so that’s the les-

son that we’re learning in this tournament,” Naughton said. Lawrence will compete Wednesday at the Olathe Northwest dual, before traveling to the Newton Tournament of Champions on Friday and Saturday.

Free State wrestler wins tourney title OVERLAND PARK — Free State wrestler Spencer Wilson won the championship Saturday at the Shawnee Mission South Invitational. The Firebirds finished in seventh place as a team. Free State’s Andrew McLees finished fourth in his class.

Suggested signs for ‘get off your phone’ Dear Annie: You recently printed a letter from “Worried Driver in Lafayette, Ind.,” who asked for a universal sign to tell drivers to hang up their cellphones. As a psychology instructor, this subject often comes up in class when discussing signs as communication. The most used response is to flash the “call me” sign and then invert it, or rotate the thumb down, which looks like hanging up. However, as my students always note, the recipients tend to retaliate with the Royal Bird salute because they are in their “eminent domain” — their sovereign vehicle — within which they feel they have complete authority and will resist, often emotionally, any intrusion. — Louisville, Ky. Dear Louisville: Hundreds of readers replied with suggestions, and yours was the most popular. Our thanks to everyone who contributed. Read on for more: From Miamisburg, Ohio: To indicate someone’s cellphone use is affecting their driving, how about making the sign for “call me” and then moving the hand to make a slashing gesture under the chin? In other words, cut the call. Quebec: I made a sign with a picture of a cellphone and a line through it and put it

hand signal — and you know which one. Florida: I hold up a hand with my thumb below the other fingers (like a duck’s mouth) and snap them together — signaling “stop yakking.” Boston: My advice would be for her to pay attention to her own driving instead of rubbernecking to see what other drivers are doing. Kansas: How about a anniesmailbox@comcast.net “thumbs down”? It is almost universally accepted as a in my car windows. It says, gesture of disdain and disap“Please don’t text or talk proval. while driving.” We travel Nebraska: Try this: Make from Canada to Florida, and I use this for the whole trip. Massachusetts: My 15-year-old daughter said she witnessed someone texting and driving. I was horrified when she told me she gave them the finger. She laughed and said, “Mom, ‘the finger,’ as in wiggling it back and forth and saying ‘tsk, tsk.’” Our 12-year-old loved this idea and used it when he saw a driver talking on his phone. Amazingly, the driver looked at him, nodded in agreement and put the phone in his shirt pocket. Texas: My suggestion is to just forget it. Using your phone while driving is simply rude. If you were to actually catch their attention and ask them to hang up, the response definitely would be a

Is ‘Downton’ the TV event of the year? The television event of the season, if not the entire year, “Downton Abbey, Season 2” debuts on “Masterpiece” (8 p.m., PBS). An “Upstairs Downstairs” for the 21st century that far surpasses the recent remake of that “Masterpiece” phenomenon, “Downton” returns three years into World War I, as the grim death toll touches members of every class. The backdrop of war and social upheaval puts a historical gloss on a classic and addictive melodrama, a tale of a major estate with a contested heir, of loves misguided, misdirected and contrived. Everyone at Downton, it seems, is trying to manipulate somebody else into doing their bidding, and the string pulling runs up and down the hierarchy. Once again, Maggie Smith presides with a regal hauteur combined with an almost childlike frankness. She always states her mind and gets nearly all of the best lines. ‘‘Downton” is not perfect. Too often Lord Grantham (Hugh Bonneville) is reduced to time-marking platitudes like, “We’re witnessing the end of an era.” Lady Grantham (Elizabeth McGovern) appears in an unvarying array of reaction shots as her icy blue eyes widen in disdain, shock, horror or amusement. A subplot about a daughter’s love for a rebellious chauffeur appears to go nowhere, and takes its sweet time getting there. But at the end of the day (or at least until “Downton” ends on Feb. 19), nobody will much care about such quibbles. “Downton” is best enjoyed for the gorgeous locations, beautiful sets and onslaught of period wardrobe changes that must have required a sweatshop of nimble seamstresses. “Downton” is a lock for every costume award at the Emmys. More than 13 million viewers watched the first “Downton,” and a million more streamed it online. In its native U.K., “Downton” is the most popular and acclaimed miniseries since “Brideshead Revisited” debuted in 1981. It’s not because “Downton” is the best acted, most cleverly scripted, most profound story ever. It’s because it combines great, overlapping human-interest stories against a backdrop of historical heartbreak and staggering beauty, art-directed to perfection. In a medium where many programs run too many seasons and most movies are at least an hour too long, “Downton” is one of those rare offerings — a series you hope never ends.

Tonight’s other highlights

Scheduled on “60 Minutes” (6 p.m., CBS): stem cell research, brothers in arms, the allure of truffles.

Scheduled on “Dateline” (7 p.m., NBC): Jennifer Hudson; a honeymoon cruise ends in mystery.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)  You know what you want, but someone could be unusually challenging and difficult. You could be concerned about a dear friend in a jam. Don’t push. Tonight: All smiles. You can have what you want. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)  You are keeping to yourself a lot, like it or not. The way everything turns out might be surprising. Tonight: Take some personal time. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)  Zero in on your priorities prior to an important get-together. It will make it more likely that a key person will be responsive. Tonight: Yes, head in a new direction. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  Pressure is rather intense as someone attempts to convince you his or her way is the only way. Experimenting with another attitude wouldn’t hurt. Tonight: Burning the midnight oil. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  Move past a snafu or an argument. As you look at situations differently, you grow and change. Tonight: Play out a dream.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22Dec. 21)  You know much more than you think. For all practical purposes, you seem to be vested in a partner or loved one agreeing with an idea. Tonight: A cozy dinner for two. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)  You know how to churn up the waters better than many signs. Tonight: Have an important discussion with a loved one and respect his or her views. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  Focus on your health and well-being. Taking a day off just for you really isn’t a problem, as you know the difference it can make. Tonight: Make it as easy as possible. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)  Your sensitivity and creativity take others by storm right now, as they might be more vulnerable. You appear to be everyone’s friend and confidant. Tonight: Hang out with a pal.

Your

For Sunday, Jan. 8: You often debate whether to respond to your emotional voice or your intellectual side. If you are single, you could enjoy dating more than ever. If you are attached, don’t put your significant other through too many hoops. If you want to, smile a lot. Cancer can be challenging. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult Aries (March 21-April 19)  Concentrating might be difficult. Your mind is putting in overtime on a personal issue. Tonight: Happy close to home. Taurus (April 20-May 20)  You might want to think carefully about your plans. Once you commit, if there is a change, you will be greeted with nothing but aggravation. Tonight: Hang out with friends. Gemini (May 21-June 20)  Be aware of what you have to offer and where you are going with a personal matter. A sense of possession could cause a problem. Tonight: Treat yourself.

Pruning cuts on trees best left untreated _________________

Treating wounds can inhibit healing process, seal in harmful moisture

W

inter is a great time to prune trees, and with pruning often comes the question of how to treat pruning wounds. The simple answer regarding tree wound treatment is the opposite of what you might think: Doing nothing is better than doing something. Doing nothing to a pruning wound means not using pruning paint, wound dressings, bandages, wax, hydrogel, spray foam, concrete, concrete sealer, bricks and mortar or any other products touted as being good tree wound treatments. (For the record, I have seen all of these items in use.) The “news” about not treating tree wounds is really not news, but I am surprised at how few people know the truth about tree wound treatments. Alex Shigo, a plant pathologist with the United States Forest Service, published research in the early 1990s proving that pruning paint and other wound treatments inhibited the tree’s natural process of compartmentalization. Compartmentalization is the process by which trees isolate damage physically and chemically. Trees wounds do not heal like animal wounds. Instead, trees compartmentalize and form callus tissue around the edge of the wound that will eventually enclose the damaged areas. Some trees are more efficient at compartmentalizing damage than others. Shigo’s work also proved that use of pruning paint and other chemicals on pruning wounds sometimes sealed in moisture that made a better environment for disease-causing organisms and could serve as a food source for some pathogens. Instead of using pruning paint, concentrate on making good pruning cuts. Always prune branches to another branch or to the main trunk instead of leaving long stubs, and make cuts just outside the branch collar. The branch collar is the ridge where the branch attaches to another branch or to the trunk of the tree. Cuts made flush with a connecting branch or trunk should also be avoided as they create a much larger wound than necessary. Large wounds take longer to compartmentalize and leave the tree more susceptible to pathogens. This is the point when someone usually asks why we even need to prune trees. The answer to this is simple too — to make

trees healthier and safer. Trees grow differently in a forest where they compete for light and live in an ecosystem conducive to tree health. Residential lawns and urban landscapes are often built on poor soils. Trees compete with grass or other plants that have higher water and nutrient needs, and they are subject to abuse from passing lawnmowers, weed trimmers, bicycle locks, and cars that leave the roadway. Many species of trees selfprune although some species are better at it than others, and tree health can be promoted by doing some of the work for them. Pruning for tree health usually includes removal of dead, diseased and insect-infested wood; removal of broken and damaged branches; thinning to increase air movement through the tree; removal of crossing or rubbing branches that wear away bark and create weak points; and structure improvement. Pruning for tree safety includes removing branches that interfere with utility lines and lines of sight at intersections and by removing branches with potential to break or fall and cause injury or property damage. Good mulching and watering practices will also help overall tree health. Ensure a two- to three-inch layer of mulch in a large-diameter circle around the base of the tree, but keep mulch pulled away from the trunk. Water deeply and infrequently over extended dry periods. As a general rule, trees and other landscape plants need about one inch of water per week. Someday researchers might present a better option for tree wounds than doing nothing, but for now, stay away from snake oils.

ABOVE, fungi grows from a surface wound that is a direct result of cutting a branch flush with the trunk. Flush cuts create bigger wounds that are subsequently harder to heal. AT LEFT, using pruner’s paint, sealant or spray foam as pictured here when treating a pruned limb is a big no-no. Some sealants lock in moisture, which allow pathogens to flourish and can end up doing more harm than good.

Kovel’s Antiques: Buy newer cabinets to save money for porcelains By Terry Kovel

Some furniture styles are so popular that they are copied by cabinetmakers for hundreds of years. Some copies are easy to recognize as copies because their construction is modern — new nails, machine-made mortise-and-tenon joints holding drawer parts together, telltale marks made by modern saws rather than the marks left by antique hand tools. Well-made used copies, sometimes more than 100 years old, are selling for almost as much as similar brand-new pieces. Decorators want the “look.” Serious collectors would like to have an authentic of-theperiod antique cabinet to display antique porcelains, but it can be very expensive. They save money by buying a newer cabinet so they can spend money on antique porcelains. A 2011 Neal Auction Co. sale in New Orleans offered a mid-19th-century cabinet in the Renaissance (1460-1600) style made of expensive Circassian walnut with ebony and ivory trim. Today’s endangered-species laws have banned the use of most types of ebony and elephant ivory. The cabinet was a good copy, heavy and rectangular. It had a base, columns, moldings, finials, carvings, paneled

doors, elaborate decorations and about 15 drawers and four doors. Some experts say cabinets like this were made to resemble imaginary buildings. The cabinet sold for $7,200. A new cabinet similar to this would cost well over $10,000, and a 15th-century piece probably couldn’t be found for sale. The collector’s rule is: Study the best there is in museums, and buy the best you can afford.

high-quality porcelain. Depending on decoration and condition, Blakeman & Henderson plates sell for $100 to $200. Q: I’ve been collecting beer mugs, old beer trays, beer advertising clocks and beer playing cards for my brother for years. All the items are old, and some of the brands don’t exist anymore. My sister-in-law says it’s all junk. Is this true, or are the items collectible? A: What’s “junk” to some is collectible to others. Breweriana collectibles, which include anything relating to beer, are very collectible and easy to sell. Trays and clocks can sell for hundreds of dollars, but even labels, beer mats, playing cards and other paper items are collectible. Price depends on age, brand, rarity and condition. There are several clubs for collectors, including the Antique Advertising Association of America (www. pastimes.org), Brewery Collectibles Club of America (www.bcca.com) and National Association of Breweriana Advertising (www. nababrew.com).

Q: My hand-painted redand-gold Limoges plate has two green marks on the back. One is “Limoges” with a line under it and the word “France” under the line. The other is a round green mark with “Limoges, France” on the circumference of the circle and “B. & H.” across the diameter. What can you tell me about its age and maker? A: The first mark was applied under the glaze by the company in Limoges, France, that manufactured and decorated your plate. So far, researchers have been unable to identify the company that used the mark, or perhaps more than one company used it. The “B. & H.” mark, applied over the glaze, was used in the early 1900s Q: I am trying to help my by Blakeman & Henderson, grandmother figure out the a French exporting company value of a vintage Willie the with a reputation for selling Clown doll. Can you help?

A: Emmett Kelly (18981979) created his “Weary Willie” hobo clown character during the Depression. The sad-sack clown was a big attraction of the Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus throughout most of the 1940s and ’50s. Kelly played the same character in Cecil B. DeMille’s 1952 movie, “The Greatest Show on Earth.” Check any tags you can find on your grandmother’s doll. The best-known Willie the Clown doll was made in the 1950s by Baby Barry Toy Co. of New York. The doll was made in a few different sizes. We have seen the 21-inch version, wearing his original clothing, offered online for $75 to $100. Q: We inherited an unusual liquor decanter when my parents died, and we would like to know more about it. It’s shaped like a knight’s helmet and is covered with leather. The leather is decorated with gold-colored lion’s-head fobs and gold-colored studs. It has a screw-type top and is 12 1/2 inches tall. The only mark or signature on it is the inscription on the bottom, “Brevettato, Made in Italy.” Can you tell us anything about this? A: Your leather-covered decanter often shows up for

sale on Internet sites. It evidently is one of a pair of decanters. The other one is a knight’s raised gloved hand holding a mace. A quick search turns up all kinds of things listed under “Brevettato,” including toys, lamps, pocket watches and clocks. “Brevettato” is the Italian word for “patented.” The maker of your decanter is unknown. Q: I have a gold Mickey Mouse ring with sapphire eyes. I was told that it was made when Club 33 opened at Disneyland. Can you confirm? A: Club 33, the private club located in Disneyland’s “New Orleans French Quarter,” has issued a lot of its own souvenirs since it opened in 1967. But all the Club 33 items we have seen are marked “Club 33” somewhere. Gold and silver (and gold-tone and silver-tone) Mickey Mouse rings have been made in abundance since Disneyland opened in Anaheim, Calif., in 1955 (and Disney World in Orlando, Fla., in 1971). Their collectible value is not as great as that of vintage Disney items made in the 1930s or ’40s. But if your ring is 14-karat gold, it’s worth its weight in gold.

The most anticipated movies coming out in 2012 Theaters to be flooded with sequels, prequels and reboots By Eric Melin Special to the Journal-World

Total box office receipts in 2011 dropped 4 percent from the year previous, but looking at the slate of movies scheduled for release this year, it doesn’t appear that Hollywood is changing its strategy much. 2012 looks like a lot of franchise continuations and reboots, as well as plenty of big-budget action movies and prestige pictures. In fact, at least 27 sequels, prequels or spin-offs are planned for release this year. Here are 10 of the most anticipated films of 2012 that already have.

John Carter — March 9 “Finding Nemo” and “WALL-E” director Andrew Stanton is mixing live-action with a heavy amount of computer-generated imagery for his adaptation of the Edgar Rice Burroughs pulpy sci-fi hero known to most fans as “John Carter of Mars.” Largely based on Burroughs’ first novel in the series, “A Princess of Mars,” this project has been in development hell since the 1980s and has changed hands and concepts many times since then. “Friday Night Lights” star Taylor Kitsch is in the lead role, and Disney has a lot riding on the success of this one, as Stanton is hoping to make a trilogy of “Mars” movies. The Hunger Games — March 23 Suzanne Collins’ series of young-adult adventure books has been nothing short of a sensation, so it’s no surprise its first filmic adaptation would be hugely anticipated. “The Hunger Games” is di-

King,” part one of the movie adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s prequel “The Hobbit” will finally reach theaters. After a long battle with New Line, MGM’s financial woes, and director Guillermo del Toro coming and going, Peter Jackson will finally deliver the epic and unexpected journey of Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) to the screen with the same production team responsible for the Oscar-winning “Rings” trilogy. Expectations couldn’t be any higher.

rected by Gary Ross (“Pleasantville,” “Seabiscuit”) and stars Josh Hutcherson and Jennifer Lawrence as two teens in a post-apocalyptic future where a televised event forces competitors to fight to the death. Lionsgate has a lot of faith that the movie will be a big hit because it already has a sequel in the works

The Avengers — May 4 Marvel has seemingly everything riding on “The Avengers.” It is the culmination of five years of careful setup in movies like “The Incredible Hulk,” “Iron Man” and its sequel, “Thor” and, most recently, “Captain America: The First Avenger.” All of the title characters will come together with Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) in 3-D to battle for the fate of the planet — and writer/director Joss Whedon (“Serenity”) is the guy responsible for making sure that the story is compelling, the action is amazing and that none of the strong Marvel personalities get lost in an ensemble picture. The Amazing Spider-Man — July 3 After pulling the plug on “Spider-Man 4” due to budget concerns, Sony Pictures decided to take Peter Parker back to high school with a new cast and director. Former music video director Marc Webb, whose only previous feature is the eccentric rom-com “(500) Days of Summer,” was an interesting choice to helm a superhero blockbuster, but Webb should have a good handle on character and he got approval to shoot the movie in 3-D rather than have it be up-

Andrew Garfield (“The Social Network”) is the teen web-slinger, while Emma Stone (“Easy A”) will play his love interest Gwen Stacy in this reboot, which is said to be focused on Parker developing his abilities. Welsh actor Rhys Ifans is an inspired choice as Dr. Curt Connors, the one-armed man who becomes The Lizard.

The Dark Knight Rises — July 20 After bending minds two summers ago with “Inception,” director Christopher Nolan returns to his wildly successful Batman franchise for the final chapter. Christian Bale’s last outing as the caped crusader takes place eight years after the events of “The Dark Knight” and stars Tom Hardy as the bone-crushing villain Bane and Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle — an enigmatic Gotham personality who becomes Catwoman.

“Home” by Toni Morrison The 1993 Nobel Prize winner and Princeton professor’s next novel comes out in May, and it is sure to hit home for many in this current time of dwindling war and racial undertones.

The Bourne Legacy — August 3 In the feud between Paul Greengrass, the director of the last two “Bourne” movies, and Tony Gilroy, the writer of all three, star Matt Damon chose to side with Greengrass. Universal, however, had a script for the continuation of the action series that didn’t include Jason Bourne, but instead centered around another assassin created by the black-ops Treadstone organization. That’s the movie that got the green light, largely thanks to Gilroy’s script and his offer to direct the film as well. Jeremy Renner plays Treadstone’s latest victim, while Edward Norton is the

Gravity — November 21 Alfonso Cuarón’s last film, “Children of Men,” was one of the most chilling and poignant sci-fi movies ever made, so his new movie, “Gravity,” starring George Clooney and Sandra Bullock as two astronauts fighting for survival in a damaged space station, has a lot to live up to. With the soon-to-be-Oscarwinning cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki (“The Tree of Life”) on board, the vast expanse of space will no doubt look amazing. The entire movie was shot digitally and will be screening in 2-D, 3-D and IMAX when it hits theaters.

Django Unchained — December 25 Quentin Tarantino has assembled a massive all-star cast for his latest take on the spaghetti western. “Django Unchained,” set in the Deep South during the time of slavery, will feature Jamie Foxx as a freed slave trained as a cutthroat assassin by a German bounty hunter (Christoph Waltz). Leonardo DiCaprio plays a Mississippi club owner, Kerry Washington is the damsel in distress and Samuel L. Jackson re-teams with Tarantino as Stephen, a brilliant slave. Rounding out the cast are such diverse actors as Don Johnson, Kurt Russell, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Sacha Baron Cohen, Anthony LaPaglia and the RZA.

“Taken” by Robert Crais The latest Cole/Pike series (out in late January) begins when a woman hires Elvis Cole to find her missing daughter. Going undercover to find the girl and her boyfriend that he thinks have been taken by bandits called “bajadores,” Cole himself is taken, leaving Joe Pike to find his friend in a dirty world rife with human traffickers. “Marriage Rules” by Harriet Lerner Yet another new book by a local author, “Marriage Rules,” (published Jan. 5) is getting a lot of buzz for Lawrence-based therapist Lerner. The book, written as a sort of self-help manual for the married, seems simple enough, but it’s actually a guide for having a healthy relationship — written in such a way that it makes turning things around seem manageable, one little step at a time. Bonus: It’s witty and is as clinical as it is practical.

The general who lost Vietnam

By Alex Garrison Read more responses and add your thoughts at www.ljworld.com

Biography turns highly critical eye on command of Westmoreland

Keith Self, para-educator, By Tony Perry Lawrence Los Angeles Times “William Kennedy’s ‘Chango’s Beads and Two-Tone Shoes.’ Reading Lewis Sorley’s It’s excellent.” scalding biography of Army Gen. William Westmoreland, “Westmoreland: The General Who Lost Vietnam,” is like watching a slow-motion replay of an oncoming train wreck. The result of this collision is known: failure of the U.S. military mission, 58,000-plus dead Americans, the U.S. divided and at political war with itself, a once-proud military left tarnished, exhausted and in disrepute. Kendra Verhage, Sorley, a West Point gradbank teller, uate and retired Army lieuLawrence tenant colonel, is unsparing “I’m re-reading ‘The Great in his analysis of WestmoreGatsby,’ one of my favorites. land, the top U.S. general in It’s probably the sixth time Vietnam from 1964 to 1968 I’ve read it. I just love it.” and then Army chief of staff in the latter years of the war. In Sorley’s view, the general whose rock-like jaw and prominent eyebrows made him look like a Hollywood casting agent’s dream of a military leader, was arrogant, duplicitous, vain and not altogether smart. When he arrived in Saigon, there were 16,000 U.S. troops in Vietnam; when he left there were 535,000. In between, Westmoreland delivered a Judy Verhage, litany of speeches and stateday-care employee, ments asserting that the war Lawrence against the North Vietnam“I like Kansas fiction, stoese and Viet Cong was being ries that show prairie life won. day-to-day.” For readers of modern military history, Sorley’s take on Vietnam precedes his work: Westmoreland’s dogged determination to stick with a “search and destroy” policy

GEN. WILLIAM WESTMORELAND, pictured on Jan. 1, 1969, is the subject of a new biography by Lewis Sorley. was disastrous; his successor, Gen. Creighton Abrams, was more successful in building the South Vietnamese forces, but the U.S. lost the war because Washington failed to follow through on promises to support the government in Saigon once U.S. troops left. With copious use of interviews and after-action documents, Sorley reports on Westmoreland’s disdain for the Vietnamese forces, his feuds with the Marine Corps and Air Force, and his unwavering belief that the war could be won with overwhelming U.S. firepower. He took credit for victories and sidestepped responsibility for defeats. Westmoreland assigned the ground combat missions to U.S. forces while the South Vietnamese were deprived of sufficient support and “relegated to support pacification,” which he felt to be a mission of little importance.

“In reality, of course,” Sorley writes, “theirs was the more challenging role, as rooting out the enemy’s covert infrastructure and strengthening the South Vietnamese governmental apparatus were far more difficult than straightforward combat operations.” Many Marine Corps generals believed in working with the South Vietnamese forces and village paramilitary units, which compounded the problems Westmoreland had “with fellow Army officers over the viability of his big-war approach.” If Sorley’s detailed, relentless reporting on Westmoreland’s years in Vietnam and the Pentagon are devastating, his chapters on Westmoreland after retiring from the Army are even more so. Like some Ancient Mariner, the general roamed the land preaching his view of what went wrong in Vietnam, trying to reclaim the reputation that had once made him

Time magazine’s man of the year. Among the places where Westmoreland took his rhetorical road show: “the Hampton County Watermelon Festival, the Junior National Team Handball Champions Recognition Ceremony, the South Carolina Subsection of the Society of American Foresters, the Lees-McRae Junior College Gymnasium Dedication, the Annual Installation of Officers of the Oak Cliff Chamber of Commerce in Dallas, and a meeting of the National Soccer Coaches Association in New York.” For Westmoreland in winter there was the failed try for the GOP nomination for governor of South Carolina and the failed lawsuit against CBS prompted by a documentary asserting that he had deliberately underestimated the strength of the enemy in order to maintain support in Washington for the war. When Gen. H. Norman Schwarzkopf, commander of the coalition forces in the Gulf War of 1991, in his book “It Doesn’t Take a Hero,” wrote that the Army had lost its integrity because of inflated counts of enemy bodies in Vietnam, Westmoreland was furious and tried to pressure Schwarzkopf into changing the text. “Nothing came of those efforts and the criticism stood.” Westmoreland died on July 18, 2005, at 91, after a life that had great success — battlefield leader in World War II and Korea, at 42 the youngest two-star general in the Army, innovative superintendent of West Point — but “turned out to be indefinitely sad.” If America wants to fully understand the war in Vietnam, it has to understand Westmoreland, Sorley asserts. He made the war into an American war. Even if they have not yet read this book, you can bet that the Army and Marine generals running the war in Afghanistan have studied the lessons of Westmoreland’s failed command.

Vampires, politics mix in Paretksy’s ‘Breakdown’ By Oline H. Cogdill Sun Sentinel

Cary Watson, Kansas University employee, Lawrence “I just finished ‘The Help.’ It’s much better than the movie.”

Larry Matthews, network administrator, Topeka “The first ‘Hunger Games.’ It was pretty good.”

It hardly seems possible that 30 years have passed since Sara Paretsky introduced Chicago private detective V.I. Warshawski in “Indemnity Only,” and helped change the mystery/thriller genre forever. Along with Marcia Muller’s Sharon McCone and Sue Grafton’s Kinsey Millhone, Paretsky’s V.I. showed that women could be strong, insightful private detectives as capable and as determined to fight for justice as any man. This triumvirate of authors broke the genre’s conventions and cliches in favor of crime fiction that evolved into social novels, showing people as they truly lived, and opened the door for new voices with varied backgrounds. “Breakdown,” V.I.’s 30th

anniversary novel, continues the approach that Paretsky has always followed, melding current events, politics and old- Sara Paretsky f a s h i o n e d is a Kansas g u m s h o e University d e t e c t i n g . graduate and “Breakdown’s” former Lawrence riveting plot resident. mixes the mania for vampire and supernatural novels, especially among tweens, virulent TV broadcasters, tabloid journalism, xenophobia and dirty politics. It’s a labyrinthine plot that moves through myriad Chicago neighborhoods, from mansions to modest apartments. In “Breakdown,” V.I. heads

to a cemetery in the middle of the night to round up a group of middle school girls who sneaked away after curfew. The girls belong to the Twilight-esque Carmilla Club, which follows the novels about Carmilla, Queen of the Night, who is a shape-shifting raven. But the girls’ initiation ritual is interrupted by V.I. who also finds the body of a man stabbed vampire-style a few feet away. V.I. wants to get all the girls away from the cemetery before the cops arrive, but she is especially concerned about the media learning the identity of two of the girls — the daughter of Sophy Durango, a liberal U.S. Senate candidate, and the granddaughter of Chaim Salanter, a wealthy Jewish businessman and Holocaust survivor who supports Durango’s campaign. Both Sophy and Chaim have been the targets of extreme mudsling-

ing by hate-spewing TV host Wade Lawlor. Intense suspense complements the complex plot, which never slows down. Paretsky skillfully juggles the myriad story threads, while never making the “Breakdown” feel overloaded. While Paretsky usually delivers well-rounded villains, “Breakdown” has few shadings in its characters’ personalities. The main villain is easy to spot and when revealed becomes a regular Chatty Cathy about motives and secrets. “Breakdown’s” finale feels both rushed and drawn-out, as if Paretsky was unsure how to end it. Still, V.I.’s quest for justice continues to be a highlight of this series as Paretsky continues to show new aspects of the detective. Fundamentally, V.I.’s values have never changed but she has become more multifaceted.

William Gibson’s writings collected in ‘Distrust That Particular Flavor’ By Chris Foran Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Ever since he coined the term “cyberspace” in 1981, speculative-fiction writer William Gibson has been a go-to guy for people looking to get a jump on where technology is taking world culture. Turns out being the go-to guy makes for a busy schedule. In addition to his 10 novels — the longer he writes, the closer his stories get to the present — Gibson has been a recurring contributor to magazines from Wired to Rolling Stone, spoken at publishing events

including 2010’s Book Expo America and written introductions to and reviews of books he’s admired. While he doesn’t always spew forth wisdom, Gibson is usually interesting, which makes “Distrust That Particular Flavor,” a new collection of some of those nonfiction writings, a breezy, engaging read. Among other things, “Distrust” shows that Gibson isn’t your stereotypical sci-fi guy. Topics range from Japanese culture to the joys of urban life to his pop-music passions (Steely Dan, Moby Grape’s Skip Spence). Sometimes he

makes sweeping insights; more often, he’s still working out his reactions to what he’s experiencing, but in a tone that never equivocates. In 1993, for example, Wired magazine sent Gibson to Singapore to get a read on the Asian economic powerhouse. The lengthy article that resulted, “Disneyland With the Death Penalty,” paints the picture of a country as “micromanaged by a state that has the look and feel of a very large corporation” — a nation that had ambitious technological goals but whose chief creative outlets appeared to

be shopping and eating. Singapore, Gibson notes, responded to the article by banning the import of Wired magazine. Unlike many collections of publishing ephemera from great/influential writers, “Distrust” includes at the end of each entry updates, clarifications or second thoughts from Gibson. Those postscripts underscore what makes Gibson so interesting to follow. In each case, he acknowledges his own limitations at the time he wrote the essay, and then briefly discusses how the thinking and ideas in it have played

out since, both in real life and in his fiction. A haunting piece on New York City, written for The Globe and Mail shortly after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, is followed by a note from Gibson explaining that the writing of the article for the Toronto newspaper helped him decide to continue writing the novel he had just started, with a character whose roots were firmly in the Big Apple. Gibson’s straightforward discussion of his thinking at the time gives both the essay and the novel he later wrote, 2003’s “Pattern Recognition,” an added dimension.

“Distrust” might be better for readers already plugged into Gibson’s evolving fictional worlds. If he’s new territory for you, a better introduction might be Gibson’s Twitter feed @GreatDismal https://twitter. com/greatdismal), a smart, curiosity-powered series of posts and retweets mixing the author’s passions (Japanese pop culture, great writing, democracy movements, Vancouver food trucks). Like “Distrust,” Gibson’s Twitter feed will take you to a lot of places you might not have realized you were interested in till he took you there.

New Year’s resolutions involving one’s faith: good idea or bad idea? —————

Recognize that resolutions are spiritual choices The Rev. Matt Sturtevant, First Baptist Church of Lawrence, 1330 Kasold Drive: This time of year, secular media is filled with references to the New Year’s resolution: tips on how to make them, advertising designed to help you keep them, and jokes about breaking them. I like the comic strip I read last year about the woman who puts her resolutions on the computer so that once she breaks them, she can delete any evidence they ever existed!

Unless we have a specific resolution based on our faith — read the Bible more, go to church more regularly — we are in- Sturtevant clined to think that these are largely secular choices. Yet, upon further reflection I believe this dichotomy is a false one. While we usually describe the major decisions in our lives as either

secular or spiritual, perhaps the best response of faith is to see every decision as a spiritual one. When I resolve to eat better or join a gym, it is because I see my body as created in God’s image. When I resolve to spend my money more wisely or to start recycling, it is because these are stewardship issues — taking care of what God has given me. When I resolve to spend more time with family, this, too, is a spiritual choice. When we recognize this, I believe it gives us a better chance of keeping those res-

olutions because they come from a deeper part of who we are. I believe that God wants to be involved in every aspect of our being. In the Bible, the book of Psalms says, “The earth is the Lord’s and all that is in it, and the world, and those who live in it.” (24:1) So as we begin this New Year, you are invited to make a resolution of faith. Here’s to hoping you don’t have to hit delete too soon! — Send email to Matt Sturtevant at matt@firstbaptistlawrence.com.

Send your questions about faith and spiritual issues for our religion columnists to religion@ljworld.com.

Resolutions, faith and otherwise, require long obedience throughout year The Rev. Jeff Barclay, lead pastor, Christ Community Church, 1100 Kasold Drive: New Year’s resolutions are a fantastic idea. But don’t limit yourself to once-a-year resolutions. Why not every day? Lamentations 3:22-23 reminds us that God’s mercies are new every day. Even though I haven’t raced for a couple of years, I fancy myself as an endurance athlete. Years ago, I adopted a mantra from the title of a book that I have never read: “A Long Obedience in the Same Direction.” Preparing for a race in June, I would run through slush, risk biking over black ice, or shovel a pre-dawn path through snow

so I could drive to the pool, all to continue my training during a northern Illinois January. Race success in June required Barclay daily resolve in January. A “long obedience in the same direction” means sticking to yesterday’s decision today and today’s resolution tomorrow. This pattern fits my Christian faith perfectly. Making a faith resolution can be liberating because resolving to say no to lesser things empowers you to say to yes to better things. In

Joshua 24:15, Joshua issues this charge: “Choose today who you will serve.” In context Joshua was giving God’s people the option of resolving to stay with the God of their faith or returning to the bonds of their former lives. Indecision begins a slow fade. I am convinced Joshua’s challenge is all encompassing. Faith decisions may appear different from a New Year’s diet resolution. But a decision between a bag of chips on the couch or an apple and a long contemplative walk may both carry with them long-term life and death implications. Aimless thinking and random, undisciplined living always delay development

This year, this land will belong to Woody Guthrie By Randy Lewis Los Angeles Times (MCT)

The colorful life and rich musical legacy of Woody Guthrie, widely considered America’s greatest folk troubadour and songwriter, will be celebrated throughout 2012 in an expansive nationwide series of all-star concerts, previously unissued recordings, conferences, museum exhibits and educational programs marking the 100th anniversary of Guthrie’s birth. Guthrie’s family, including his children Arlo and Nora, is collaborating closely with officials at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles in assembling “Woody at 100.” The latter will include a broad swath of activities that will take place from California to the New York island, from the redwood forest to the Gulf Stream waters — mirroring the words of “This Land Is Your Land,” Guthrie’s best-known song among some 3,000 he wrote before his death in 1967 at age 55. An overarching goal of the various activities is to introduce younger audiences to Guthrie’s music and remind all listeners of his place in the long history of music as a powerful tool of social change, said Grammy Museum executive director Robert Santelli, who is overseeing much of the centennial planning with Nora Guthrie. “This is without question the largest centennial celebration of any American pop or roots musician,” said Santelli, who previously worked at the Experience Music Project in Seattle and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland before coming to Los Angeles to open the Grammy Museum a little more than three years ago. Lineups for various concerts are being finalized, but Santelli said the performances will include numerous contemporary musicians whose music has been influenced by Guthrie’s songs empathizing with the poor, the powerless and the downtrodden.

This is without question the largest centennial celebration of any American pop or roots musician.” — Grammy Museum executive director Robert Santelli His music strongly influenced generations of musicians, from ’50s folk revivalists including Pete Seeger and the Weavers to ’60s singer-songwriters such as Bob Dylan, John Lennon, Joan Baez and Phil Ochs on through politically and socially conscious performers including Jackson Browne, Bonnie Raitt, Neil Young, Crosby Stills & Nash, Bruce Springsteen, John Mellencamp and latter-day provocateurs including Rage Against the Machine and System of a Down. It’s unclear yet whether Dylan or Springsteen will take part in any of the concerts, but Santelli said that participants also will come from well beyond the folk, Americana and rock genres most closely associated with Guthrie’s music. He is reaching out to the hiphop community to show the connection between Guthrie’s songs of conscience and the music that has represented the voice of the disaffected urban communities in the last three decades. “We’re just trying to keep up with what everyone is doing,” said Nora Guthrie, the youngest of his three children and the driving force behind the Woody Guthrie Archives. “We’re not going around creating press for Woody Guthrie. We just feel this is a nice time to say, ‘This is what Pampa, Texas, is doing, this is what’s going on in L.A., this is what’s going on in France, Germany or Spain.” The fact that many of Guthrie’s songs have been sung during “Occupy” protests in different cities is further proof of his ongoing relevance. “He was lucky enough — or unlucky enough — to be the

guy who all this stuff came into and came out of,” Nora Guthrie said. “He was the one who was able to take in what everybody was saying and put it back out. Who was it that said, ‘I thought this land was made for you and me’? Maybe it was a hobo. He was that kind of writer, picking up sayings and stories, attitudes and emotions. He was the ultimate fly on the wall, and that kind of character will always be around, and those ideas will always be around.” So the plethora of centennial activities is both “ambitious and totally apropos given the nature of songs of conscience right now,” said Santelli, co-author of the 1999 biography “Hard Travelin’: The Life and Legacy of Woody Guthrie” and who has a second Guthrie book coming next month, “This Land Is Your Land: Woody Guthrie and the Journey of an American Folk Song.” It’s one of at least half a dozen new books on Guthrie slated for publication this year. A 3-CD box set, also titled “Woody at 100” and due in February, collects previously unreleased recordings discovered by the Smithsonian Folkways label where Guthrie did much of his recording. “When I grew up (in the 1960s), a big part of what popular music did had to do with expression — political and social expression in lyrics,” Santelli said. “We have gotten away from that for the last couple of decades, and Guthrie is, of course, the poster boy for songs of conscience.”

That is also why the most important days of a faith resolution are the ones in the middle. That is why the race of faith requires a long obedience in the same direction. — Send email to Jeff Barclay at jeff@ccclawrence.org.

Keith Olbermann fights bosses at Current TV By Scott Collins Los Angeles Times (MCT)

Keith Olbermann, the TV personality famed for giving his employers at least as many headaches as ratings points, seems poised for one of his biggest fights. The irascible host of “Countdown” is locked in a quickly escalating battle with his bosses at tiny Current TV, which he joined only last year. He Olbermann is meanwhile lashing out at other media as attorneys hash out his future at the network, where he makes a reported $10 million a year. The tussle began with a standoff with his bosses over election coverage at the startup network, which was cofounded by former Vice President Al Gore. Olbermann was conspicuously absent from the airwaves during Current’s reporting on the Iowa caucuses Tuesday night and his bosses are uncertain whether he will appear for New Hampshire primary coverage next week. Olbermann has suggested on Twitter that his program was improperly pre-empted from its regular 8 p.m. time slot on Tuesday; Current has maintained that he was repeatedly invited to host the network’s caucus coverage and declined for reasons he did not explain. “I was not given a legiti-

mate opportunity to host under acceptable conditions,” Olbermann wrote in a statement Wednesday to the Hollywood Reporter. “They know it and I know it.” Olbermann — who reportedly has an equity stake in Current — did not clarify what conditions he wanted, according to the Reporter. Network executives declined to speak for the record and Olbermann’s attorney, Patricia Glaser, did not immediately return a phone call, although she has been quoted as saying she is discussing her client’s situation with Current attorneys. Olbermann’s program has been plagued by technical snafus not uncommon to small cable networks, including lighting problems that he mocked last month by illuminating a candle in his darkened studio. Privately, Current executives also believe that Olbermann is uncomfortable sharing camera time with others during primary coverage. On Tuesday, the network had Gore himself help pore through the caucus results. Whatever the cause, the latest spat seems in keeping with Olbermann’s previous career. He abruptly left MSNBC early last year, just weeks after the network suspended him for making donations to political candidates. Earlier, he had a famously stormy tenure at ESPN and was fired from Fox Sports Net. “He’s crazy,” Fox boss Rupert Murdoch reportedly said when asked about Olbermann.

To help you wade through the stacks and stacks of all-comers, staff members at The Raven Book Store, 6 E. Seventh St., Half Price Books, 1519 W. 23rd St., and the Lawrence Public Library, 707 Vt., let us in on the books they’re most eagerly awaiting in 2012, plus the already-published novels they think will hit big this year. So clear off that night stand and dust off your reading glasses — you won’t want to do anything but careen through these titles once you have them in your hands.

ite, Tyler’s newest novel (out in April) explores life during the pain of loss and recovery. It is the story of Aaron, who marries the outspoken Dorothy, only to lose her later in life when a tree falls on their house. As Aaron deals with the death of his wife, it’s easy to draw comparisons to Tyler’s own grief — the 1988 Pulitzer Prize winner lost her husband, Taghi Modarressi, in 1997 to lymphoma.

“The Chaperone” by Laura Moriarty Lawrence resident and Kansas University professor Moriarty’s newest novel (June) surrounds the 36-year-old chaperone of famed silentfilm star Louise Brooks. The book imagines 1922, in which Brooks and Cora, the chaper“The Beginner’s Goodbye” one, leave Wichita by Anne Tyler for New York City, Sure to be a book club favor- where the teenager is hoping to

find fame and fortune.

“Steve Jobs” by Walter Isaacson The Apple mogul’s biography is a must-read for anyone hoping to make a difference through applied imagination. Isaacson spent more than two years interviewing and shadowing Jobs, who died in October 2011 after a struggle with pancreatic cancer. Within the month, his biography (over which Jobs asked to have no editorial control) hit the shelves — 656 pages of candid quotes, inspiration and serious detail of a man revered by both those in the tech industry and private society as well. “The Woman in Black” by Susan Hill This isn’t a new book, to be sure — it came out nearly 30 years ago. That said, a new movie based on this British thriller is coming out in February and should drum up interest for Hill’s original novel. Starring Daniel Radcliffe Please see BOOKS, page 8C

Preserve old family photos by digitizing them By Mike Yoder myoder@ljworld.com

My family pulled out the slide projector and old family photographs during the holidays. Some people would consider this torture, but I think it’s fun. The problem is I wasn’t there. I had already left for home. Maybe there are photos they don’t want me to see or they don’t want a professional photographer critiquing their work. I asked my mom, “Why didn’t you do that when I was there? I asked. “I didn’t even know we had family slides.” I always believed my parents didn’t take photographs. I don’t recall a single camera in the house. Friends and relatives took the images I know. “Oh, we’ve got several trays of slides,” responded my mom. I was stunned. “Mom, I need to take those slides and scan them,” I said. “We need to save those.”

“It looks like they are fading, too,” she added. Oh, jeez. How did I not know about these slides? I hope that, within the next couple of months, I’ll get my hands on the photos and can start digitizing them. I can probably correct some of the fading issues, and once scanned I can save them to discs and hard drives and maybe later create a book for the whole family. The point of this story is to encourage everyone to seek out old family photos, especially the original negatives and slide transparencies, and bring them into the digital age. The best way to get a negative or slide transparency into a digital format is to scan the original piece of film. If you don’t have the inclination to Mike Yoder/Journal-World Photo purchase and learn how to use a film scanner the best course of action is to SCANNING COLLECTIONS OF OLD FILM NEGATIVES and slide have a professional lab do the scans transparencies can save images for future generations as well as convert them to a digital format, making it easy to duplicate, Please see LENS, page 8C email or print.
