Overtime concerns to affect shoveling ordinance

Lawrence woman’s generosity led to nation’s 1st scholarship hall

By Chad Lawhorn clawhorn@ljworld.com

THE CONCEPT BEHIND scholarship halls — as a place where students can live for reduced costs, provided they maintain certain grades and help cook and clean for other residents — began with Elizabeth Watkins’ idea in 1926.

That’s what the tax code is now, it’s a whole set of winners and losers. If you reform it, you’re going to create new winners and new losers, and the losers always scream much louder than the winners cheer.” — Howard Gleckman, a fellow at the Urban Institute and editor of TaxVox, a blog on tax issues.

Watkins Hall residents, past and present, to celebrate founder’s 150th birthday By Andy Hyland ahyland@ljworld.com

A group of Watkins Scholarship Hall alumnae and students will gather this weekend to commemorate the 150th birthday of the hall’s benefactor, Elizabeth Watkins, whose generosity has benefited Kansas University and Lawrence for generations after her death. Born in 1861 in New Paris, Ohio, Elizabeth Miller — who would become Elizabeth Watkins upon her marriage — found a job as an office clerk at the J.B. Watkins Land and Mortgage Co. at the age of 15. She advanced in the company to the role of assistant secretary. She married Watkins in 1909 when she was 47 years old.

Though she enrolled in preparatory school, she had to drop out after two years to support her family. She devoted herself later in life to helping other women achieve the university education she was never able to obtain for herself. The concept behind scholarship halls — as a place where students can live for reduced costs, provided they maintain a certain grade-point-average and help cook and clean for other residents — began with Watkins’ idea in 1926. “Watkins is the first scholarship hall in America,” said Norma Hoagland, an alumna of the hall who is part of the group of former residents called Kitchen 8, one of a number of groups that shared cooking duties.

Watkins wanted to provide an opportunity — and a place to live — for women who could not otherwise afford college, said Beverly Benso, another alumna. “My sympathy has always been with the girls who must travel uphill,” Watkins told the University Daily Kansan in 1926. “... It has been my dream to aid self-supporting girls to get an education ... I have never done anything into which I have put more of myself.” And in Watkins Hall, 1506 Lilac lane, her memory is alive and well. Sarah Greenup, a Wichita senior, lives in the scholarship hall today. She said the residents know of Watkins’ story; they actually call her “Lizzie.” “Those who live in Watkins have a much dif-

Elizabeth Miller ferent relationship with our benefactors than people who live in, say, Ellsworth Hall,” Greenup said. Irvin Youngberg, a longtime KU Endowment Association leader, detailed Watkins’ contributions in a 1971 speech. They included funds to support Watkins and Miller scholarship halls, her contribution to the construction of Lawrence Memorial Hospital and her donation of her home atop Mount Oread that Please see WATKINS, page 7A

There may be one thing City Hall leaders hate worse than covered city sidewalks: overtime. Under the city’s snow shoveling ordinance, sidewalks covered by Wednesday’s snow storm need to be cleared by 8 a.m. Saturday. But city officials confirmed Thursday that city inspectors won’t be out investigating complaints until 8 a.m. Monday. City leaders, though, are encouraging residents to shovel this weekend anyway to aid pedestrians who need to use the sidewalks. Residents can submit complaints about unshoveled sidewalks during the weekend, even though inspectors won’t be out. The city’s phone system accepts complaints at 832-7700 or complaints can be made online at lawrenceks.org. Mother Nature may make the weekend question moot. The ordinance gives property owners 48 hours after the end of a snowfall or ice event to clear their sidewalks. So, if it snows before 8 a.m. on Saturday, residents would be given another 48 hours to comply anyway. But one note of warning: The city interprets the ordinance to mean a measurable snowfall. “The city does not consider flurries accumulating snowfall,” said Brian Jimenez, the city’s code enforcement manager. As of Thursday evening, the National Weather Service was predicting a 30 percent chance of light snow this afternoon, and then a 50 percent chance of light snow Saturday night through Sunday. — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362.

STATE GOVERNMENT

Sloan’s school proposal may have been trumped By Scott Rothschild srothschild@ljworld.com

TOPEKA — A proposal by state Rep. Tom Sloan, RLawrence, to create a commission that would make recommendations to the Legislature on what the state should fund in public schools may have been killed by Gov. Sam Brownback and House Speaker Mike O’Neal. Sloan is chair of the House Vision 2020 Committee, which earlier this week filed a bill that would set up the “constitutional education suitability commission” and present findings to the Legislature by Dec. 1, 2012. The commission would have 19 members including teachers, administrators, parents of public

school students, representatives from higher education, employers and Sloan others. Its task would be to make recommendations on curriculum components that should be funded by the Legislature. The fight over school finance, which takes up about half of the state budget, has been one of the toughest over the past several legislative sessions. Sloan said he figured it would be a good idea to get experts, stakeholders and businesses together to try

to determine what should the state fund. “The fight between Brownback education supporters and more conservative members of the Legislature can’t be addressed unless we get to a common point of what we need to fund,” Sloan said. Sloan said he believes members of the commission would be better suited than legislators to come up with a definition of what a suitable education should include. But Brownback, a Republican, on Wednesday assigned legislative

leaders to tackle school finance, Medicaid and the state’s public pension system, and deliver reforms by the end of the current legislative session. Brownback gave Speaker O’Neal, R-Hutchinson, the lead on school funding. “I’m not big on creating a commission to come back in two years,” O’Neal, R-Hutchinson, said when asked about Sloan’s proposal. He said Sloan was correct in focusing on determining what a suitable education is, and that there may be parts of the bill that could be used as a framework for discussion. But O’Neal added, “I have a shorter timeframe.” — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

Dr. Michael Zabel, a cardiologist at Lawrence Memorial Hospital, said the emergency room sees an uptick in patients with heart problems during wintry conditions. He said any extreme temperature — hot or cold — puts a significant stress on the body, especially the cardiovascular system. When you add activities such as shoveling snow, it can cause problems from mild to severe. He said the ER has had two heart attack patients since the first snowfall this season. Shoveling snow is especially dangerous for anyone who has had treatment or surgery for heart disease. “I am all for my heart patients being active, but that’s the wrong kind of activity. I don’t restrain my patients from doing very much, but shoveling snow is one of the very few things that I ask them to refrain from doing — almost universally,” Zabel said. “It’s just a horrible combination of bad weather and the wrong kind of exercise.” Please see DOCTOR, page 7A

Maintenance backlog grows at universities

Giffords making steady recovery

By Scott Rothschild

Gabrielle Giffords on Thursday felt the sunshine on her face for the first time since she was shot, as doctors prepared her to leave behind the Arizona hospital where she dazzled them with her rapid recovery. Her next stop will be a Houston rehab center, where she will face an even more arduous task: Getting life back to normal. Her husband said he’s hoping she’ll make a full recovery, calling her “a fighter like nobody else that I know.” The doctors who will help her offered a more sober outlook. “Not everyone always gets 100 percent restoration, but we help them to get to a new normal,” said Carl Josehart, chief executive of the rehab hospital that will be the Arizona congresswoman’s home for the next month or two. Giffords is recovering from a bullet wound to the brain, but has been making progress nearly every day. 2 | WASHINGTON, D.C.

Hu urges closer U.S.-China ties Chinese President Hu Jintao denied his country is a military threat despite its arms buildup and pressed the U.S. on Thursday for closer cooperation between the global powers. He urged the United States to treat China “with respect and as equals” after encountering a fresh barrage of criticism from lawmakers over human rights. In a luncheon speech to American business executives, Hu also urged the U.S. to continue to recognize China’s sovereignty over Taiwan and Tibet. “China-U.S. relations will enjoy smooth and steady growth when the two countries handle well issues involving each other’s major interests. Otherwise, our relations will suffer constant trouble or even tension,” Hu said as he wrapped up his state visit to Washington.

T O P E K A — The backlog of maintenance and repair projects at the state’s public universities continues to increase, although it fell slightly at Kansas University, according to a report released Thursday. The deferred maintenance backlog for 2010 was $876 million, which is $51 million or 6 percent higher than in 2008. The backlog was $663 million in 2006. “As any homeowner knows, routine maintenance and repair gets more expensive to fix the longer it’s deferred,” said Kansas Board of Regents Chairman Gary Sherrer of Overland Park.

Car bombs kill 51 in attack on pilgrims Three suicide car bombers struck Shiite pilgrims south of Baghdad on Thursday, killing at least 51 people and wounding more than 180 in a third straight day of attacks across Iraq. The string of assaults, reminiscent of the bloodiest days of the Iraq war, shattered a two-month lull and presented a major challenge to the new government of Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, who must soon decide whether to ask U.S. forces to stay after the end of the year. Thursday’s attacks were particularly significant because most of the victims were Shiite civilians, the government’s core constituency.

As pronghorn antelope and mule deer scattered to avoid the procession, park employees and state livestock agents on horseback pushed the 25 bison about 10 miles down the Yellowstone River valley. It took about three hours to reach an open meadow in the Gallatin National Forest, where the animals will be allowed to remain until spring. The move could provide at least some relief from government-sponsored mass slaughters of the iconic Western animals, often called buffalo. Past winter journeys by bison seeking to graze at lower elevations have been blocked over fears that a disease carried by some could infect cattle. During the last major migration, in 2008, 1,600 Yellowstone bison were killed — about a third of the park’s total.

Federal authorities orchestrated one of the biggest Mafia takedowns in FBI history Thursday, charging 127 suspected mobsters and associates in the Northeast with murders, extortion and other crimes spanning decades. Past investigations have resulted in strategic strikes aimed at crippling individual crime families. This time, authorities used a shotgun approach, with some 800 federal agents and police officers making scores of simultaneous arrests stemming from different mob investigations in New York, New Jersey and Rhode Island. They also used fanfare: Attorney General Eric Holder made a trip to New York to announce the operation at a news conference with the city’s top law enforcement officials. As of late Thursday, 125 had been arrested, including four who were already behind bars. Holder called the arrests “an important and encouraging step forward in disrupting La Cosa Nostra’s operations.” But he and others also cautioned that the mob, while having lost some of the swagger of the John Gotti era, is known for adapting to adversity and finding new ways of making money and spreading violence.

when there was $316.5 million. The backlog for the rest of the schools includes $79.5 million at Pittsburg State; $73.4 million at Wichita State; $57.1 million at Emporia State; and $52.5 million at Fort Hays State. There are 818 state-owned buildings on state university campuses, encompassing 26,214 acres, with a replacement value of $7.3 billion, the report said. Approximately 40 percent of these buildings were built between the 1960s and 1980s, and the average life cycle of heating, ventilation, electrical and plumbing systems is about 23 years.

Trial delayed for last defendant charged in KU ticket scam By Mark Fagan mfagan@ljworld.com

A federal judge has agreed to delay the trial for the last remaining defendant charged with conspiring to steal Kansas University athletics tickets, sell them to outsiders and then conceal the proceeds from KU and the IRS. U.S. District Court Judge Wesley Brown has granted Ben Kirtland’s requested postponement, one intended to give his attorney time to review evidence in the case: nine boxes of documents

provided by KU, plus disks containing 12,000 pages of e-mails involving Kirtland and another 50,000 e-mails involving other alleged co-conspirators. Kirtland, charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud, now is scheduled to stand trial March 8 in federal court in Wichita. The trial originally had been scheduled to begin Feb. 15. Kirtland is former associate athletics director for development at Kansas Athletics Inc., and was among five former officials indicted for their role in a ticket-stealing conspiracy. Two

of the others — Rodney Jones and Kassie Liebsch — pleaded guilty last week and await sentencing at the end of March. Charlette and Tom Blubaugh are scheduled to plead guilty at the end of next week. Two other former department employees — Jason Jeffries and Brandon Simmons — pleaded guilty previously to a charge of failing to notify authorities about the scam, and are scheduled to be sentenced March 7. — Schools reporter Mark Fagan can be reached at 832-7188.

Despite efforts to repeal health reform, 48 states are moving forward to implement Health Insurance Exchanges. Kansas is among them. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said the exchanges will provide individuals and small businesses with a onestop shop to find and com- Sebelius pare health insurance options. It also will allow them to pool their purchasing power. She announced Thursday new federal funding that will be available to states. The “establishment exchange” grants, which have no cap, can be used for a variety of activities including research, consultation, making regulatory changes, or governing the exchange. Sebelius said that while states are making progress toward establishing exchanges, they are doing so at different paces. That's why the new funding will be granted on the needs of each state. States that are moving at a faster pace can apply for multiyear funding, while others can apply for funding for each project year. Some examples of progress: ● California was the first to sign legislation to implement a Health Insurance Exchange Please see KANSAS, page 7A

Longtime workout participants to roast ‘Red Dog’ By Mark Fagan mfagan@ljworld.com

Some longtime “doggies” of Red Dog’s Dog Days are lining up to skewer Red Dog himself during a roast Saturday night. And everyone’s invited. The Red Dog Roast is set for 7:30 p.m. in the main dining room at Alvamar Country Club, and that means no tank tops, gym shorts, or running shoes. Try semi-formal or even formal attire, a change of pace to help honor Don “Red Dog” Gardner and his wife, Bev. “Red Dog is one of the treasures of Lawrence — a state and

national treasure,” said Phil Bradley, a longtime participant in Dog Days workouts and scheduled roaster for Saturday night. “He gets a lot Gardner of local publicity, but doesn’t always get a lot of local respect. “This is a chance for us, where we’re not in sweaty clothes, to tell some stories about our dear friend.” The event is free and open to the public, although attendees

may choose to show up early for a pasta buffet, scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. Cost for that is $21, and there will be a cash bar. The roast is the brainchild of Jeff and Susie Sigler and their daughter, Melissa Sigler. All attend Dog Days workouts, now in wintertime mode: Participants show up at 6 a.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays to run, skip and jump around the concourse and up and down stairs at Allen Fieldhouse. Summer workout sessions — either in the morning or at night — are regarded as anything but easy, especially with Red Dog behind his megaphone, direct-

ing the doggies through drills. Like the roast itself, the workouts are free of charge and open to all. It’s a Lawrence tradition, through and through. “We’re going to have some great stories, observations, half truths and some all-out lies,” Jeff Sigler said of the roast, which has about 10 speakers scheduled to share their thoughts at the mic. “I’ve been around Lawrence a long time, and I can’t remember anyone ever having a roast. It’ll be a good way to poke fun at him and honor him at the same time.” — Schools reporter Mark Fagan can be reached at 832-7188.

Storm causes slow traffic, few accidents By George Diepenbrock gdiepenbrock@ljworld.com

A Lawrence police officer was treated and released at Lawrence Memorial Hospital early Thursday after he was involved in a two-vehicle accident on the east edge of Lawrence. Sgt. Matt Sarna, a Lawrence police spokesman, said 19year-old Erica M. Demby of Lawrence lost control of her 1997 Chevrolet car just after 2:30 a.m. in the left lane of westbound snow-packed Kansas Highway 10. Demby then rear-ended a marked police car driven by officer Reid S. Walter who had his emergency lights on and was attempting to merge into traffic, Sarna said. The accident occurred about 150 feet west of Franklin Road, which leads to the Douglas County Jail. Sarna said Walter had a facial laceration and was treated and later released from LMH. Demby refused medical attention at the scene.

“No citations were issued pending further investigation and lab results to see if alcohol was a contributing factor,” Sarna said. That was the only injury accident reported in Lawrence since 4 p.m. Wednesday once the winter storm that dropped 6.7 inches of snow started to take shape. The storm did cause traffic to slow significantly on major streets during the evening rush hour. Sarna said officers handled six noninjury accidents within the city between 4 p.m. Wednesday and 10 a.m. Thursday. Off icers also assisted 38 motorists with vehicles that either had become stuck or gone off the road during that time. Douglas County Undersheriff Steve Lewis said no accidents were reported in the county but officers assisted several motorists during the storm. — Reporter George Diepenbrock can be reached at 832-7144.

LAW ENFORCEMENT REPORT • A 22-year-old Lawrence man was arrested on a charge of aggravated assault Wednesday afternoon at the Community Building, 115 W. 11th St., after an alleged altercation with a 28year-old man over a basketball game there. Sgt. Matt Sarna, a Lawrence police spokesman, said the suspect, Gene L. Nance, was accused of retrieving a handgun from his bag and showing it to the 28-year-old man. The suspect then left the building, but police were called and arrested Nance in the parking lot on charges of aggravated assault and defacing a firearm. Police did recover a gun, Sarna said.

LAWRENCE SCHOOL BOARD CANDIDATES

KU professor: Education is ‘best investment’ LMH employee wants to support students ahyland@ljworld.com

A Kansas University professor has announced his candidacy for a seat on the Lawrence school board. Keith Diaz Moore, 44, is an associate professor and associate dean of graduate studies in the School of Architecture, Design and Planning at KU. “As a parent and from a philosophical viewpoint, I just Moore view education as the best investment we can possibly make,” he said. Moore lives at 1738 Barker Ave. with his wife, Laura Diaz Moore, who is an attorney,

CANDIDATES Five candidates, Marlene Merrill, Shannon Kimball, Keith Diaz Moore, Tyler Palmer and Randy Masten, have filed for the four Lawrence school board seats up for election April 5. The filing deadline is noon Tuesday, in the clerk’s office at the Douglas County Courthouse, 1100 Mass. and two children, Zoe, 8, and Oliver, 5. He serves on the Cordley Site Council and worked with the grass-roots advocacy group Save Our Neighborhood Schools. He said that in the process of attending school board meetings for more than a year, he noticed the board often seemed as if it didn’t have enough time to review its materials, and would seem to

be making reactive decisions. Moore called for a more holistic approach to ensure that all decisions — and budgetary investments — fit within a framework of a larger vision to improve education. “What we need to remember is what a budget is,” Moore said. “It reflects our values. It just does it in dollar terms.” As a member of the school board, Moore said, he would seek to take an active role in advocating for the district with Topeka lawmakers. He said schools would benefit from more community programs, potentially including partnerships with the library or with senior citizens groups. — Higher education reporter Andy Hyland can be reached at 832-6388.

He is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in history from Kansas University. “If we don’t help educate our kids, we’re not helping Lawrence, the state or the nation,” he said.

Lottery players can win art By Brenna Hawley bhawley@ljworld.com

The Kansas Lottery is commemorating Kansas’ 150th birthday with 10 paintings of the state, which will be on display from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. today at Landmark National Bank, 4621 W. Sixth St. The paintings, which cover topics from trains in Strong City to bison to famous Kansans, were commissioned for the new $2 scratch ticket called Happy 150 Kansas. All are second-chance drawings for the ticket, which means a lottery-ticket holder who doesn’t win money still might win a painting in a drawing in August. Jamie Lavin, Gardner resident and curator of the collection, gave 10 Kansas artists guidelines for the paintings and gave them a quick turnaround for finishing them. While the reason for commissioning them was so they could be prizes, the paintings also captured the beauty and diversity of the state. “I love where I come from,” he said. “There’s just a great deal of beauty here.” Four of the paintings were selected to be images on the scratch tickets: a Kanza Indian chief, a lone bison, the Strong City train depot and a cattle drive. Prints of the images will be available at the showing, and most artists will be on hand to sign the prints. Artists who created the pieces and their topics: Chun Wang, Shawnee, the Wyandotte Constitution; Don Dane, Olathe, a Kanza Indian chief; Elaine Lierly Jones, Gardner, famous Kansans; Gary Ozias, Downs, a bison; Michael Walsh, formerly of Ellsworth, Strong City train depot; Joe Bucher, Louisburg, a cattle drive; Kathy Thompson, Lawrence, modern farming; Susan Sinclair, Lenexa, Kansas aviation; Dan Brewer, Westwood, Nicodemus; and Jamie Lavin, Gardner, where historic trails divide. — Reporter Brenna Hawley can be reached at 832-6321.

holds an art history degree from KU, and son Kanak, 9. Masten said last year’s budget issues piqued his interest in the school board. He said he looked at the broad picture and believes a long-term perspective is needed in the current academic situation. “I think we’ve got to look at where we want our schools not two years from now, but 15 years,” he said. “If we don’t have that instinct in mind, what we do is just reactionary.” As a member of the school board, Masten said, his experience as an Army planner and trained strategist will help in evaluating its position and

keeping things in perspective. He said his work as an analyst will allow him to delve into the details. Masten said he realized keeping Lawrence strong academically and improving the system was necessary for the city to grow and attract businesses. The challenges that accompany the school board position are the reason Masten said he’s running. “We’ve just got to take a hard, organized look at where we’re at and where we want to be,” he said. — Reporter Joe Preiner can be reached at 832-6314.

Wal-Mart pushing for healthier food By Mary Clare Jalonick and Anne D’Innocenzio Associated Press Writers

WASHINGTON — Attention, Walmart shoppers: The food in your cart, from fruit drinks to salad dressing, may soon get healthier. The nation’s largest grocer said Thursday it will reformulate thousands of storebrand products to reduce sodium and sugar and push its suppliers to do the same. It also promises to reduce prices on produce and build stores in poor areas that don’t already have grocery stores. First lady Michelle Obama said Wal-Mart’s plans have “the potential to transform the marketplace and help Americans put healthier foods on their tables every single day.” She lent star power to Wal-Mart Stores Inc. executives as they

announced the effort in Washington as part of her campaign against obesity. A number of food makers have made similar moves, lowering sodium in their products based on shopper demand and increasing scrutiny by health groups. Bumble Bee Foods, General Mills Inc., Campbell Soup Co., PepsiCo Inc. and Kraft Foods Inc. all announced sodium reductions to their products last year. Wal-Mart’s size, however, gives it unique power to shape what people eat. The grocery business of the nation’s largest retailer accounts for about 15 percent of the industry in the U.S. and is nearly twice the size of No. 2 competitor Kroger. “This is a game changer,” said Michael Hicks, associate professor of economics at Ball State University and

author of a book on WalMart’s economic impact. “If Wal-Mart could reduce the prices on healthy food and provide access to them in more places, you could have a measurable effect on incidences of diabetes and heartrelated ailments.” About 20 percent of WalMart’s food products are sold under its Great Value store brand, Hicks estimates. Making brand-name products healthier will require help from suppliers, but the company’s influence over them is already clear. When Wal-Mart pressed producers to use less packaging, for example, they responded. Now deodorant and toothpaste are sold without boxes. “The whole industry shifted, and this will likely be the case for sodium and sugars,” Hicks said.

Notable ● Eric Schmidt, a technology veteran brought in as Google Inc.’s “adult supervision” a decade ago, is relinquishing the CEO job to Larry Page, one of the prodigies who co-founded the company behind the Internet’s dominant gateway. The surprise shake-up announced Thursday appears to be driven by Schmidt’s desire to assume more of a behind-the-scenes role as much as Page’s personal ambition. “Day-to-day adult supervision no longer needed!” Schmidt wrote on his Twitter account moments after Google dropped the bombshell that upstaged its fourth-quarter earnings. Schmidt, 55, will still be available to advise Page, 37, and Google’s other 37-year-old founder, Sergey Brin, as the company’s executive chairman.

Generous tax breaks make reform difficult

By Stephen Ohlemacher Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON — Nine in 10 Americans will find the maze of credits, deductions and exemptions on their tax forms so confusing and difficult that they’ll hire someone or turn to special computer software to f ill out their returns. Even the commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service says he pays someone to do his taxes. President Barack Obama and key lawmakers from both political parties say it’s time for a serious national discussion about making the tax code simpler and fairer. It’s going to be a long talk, one that could last years. Why? Because every deduction, exemption and credit, every layer of complexity, is important to somebody, in some cases millions of somebodies. “That’s what the tax code is now, it’s a whole set of winners and losers,” said Howard Gleckman, a fellow at the Urban Institute and editor of TaxVox, a blog on tax issues. “If you reform it, you’re going to create new winners and new losers, and the losers always scream much louder than the winners cheer.” There is a lot of political support on Capitol Hill for simplifying the tax code. But in the new era of divided government, it is unclear whether Obama has the ability, or the political will, to steer such a massive piece of legislation through a Republi-

can-controlled House and a deeply divided Senate. “We’re examining whether we can find the political support for a comprehensive tax reform,” Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner said at a recent economic forum. The Senate Finance Committee started holding hearings on tax reform last year, and chairman Max Baucus, D-Mont., plans more this year. The House Ways and Means Committee held its first hearing on the issue Thursday. “I am under no illusion that the task before us will be easy,” said Rep. Dave Camp, R-Mich., chairman of Ways and Means. “To really reform the tax code in a way that lowers the tax rate, broadens the base and promotes the competitiveness of American companies, we will need to make some tough choices.” Congress isn’t used to making tough choices when it comes to taxes, said Eugene Steuerle, a former Treasury official who worked on the last tax reform package that passed Congress, in 1986. For much of the past decade, lawmakers have simply borrowed to pay for spending projects and tax cuts. “Most of the members of Congress have never engaged in legislation that identified the losers — who’s going to pay for government, who’s going to pay to get the budget in order,” Steuerle said. “They’re not used to that type of legislation.”

Estate gift helps fund KU scholarships Two longtime Basehor educators have provided for three Kansas University scholarships as part of a $780,000 estate gift. Ward L. and Irene Neis Kiester lived in Basehor, where Ward was a longtime school administrator and Irene taught high school for 25 years. Ward was inducted into the Kansas Teachers Hall of Fame in 1978. Ward died in 1983, and Irene died in 2008. He received two degrees from KU, a bachelor’s degree in 1930 and a master’s in European history in 1932. Irene received a bachelor’s degree in education from KU in 1941. Two of the three scholarships will be named for Ward and Irene, and a third will be named for the couple’s son, Ward L. Kiester II, a 1972 KU alumnus who died in a 1972 car accident. Using funds from their estate, the two educators also provided $75,000 to the Basehor United Methodist Church and $75,000 to the BasehorLinwood school district to endow two scholarship funds.

Watkins Hall celebrating founder’s 150th birthday CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1A

funds for the construction of Danforth Chapel, the tradition-rich nondenominational chapel on campus that serves as a popular wedding spot for alumni, also came from Watkins’ bequest. A grant from the Watkins fund in 1952 initiated and emphasized study abroad programs at KU, Youngberg said, by supporting the university’s participation in a seminar in Denmark. KU’s Watkins-Berger scholarship is a scholarship designed for girls who excel academically in high school. This year, it is a $4,500 award, renewable for four years if the student meets academic standards. The scholarships were created using funds from Watkins’ estate and from a gift from alumnus Arthur Berger, who wanted to create a scholarship in memory of his older sister Emily Berger, who earned a chemistry degree in 1914 and died in 1920 while working on her master’s degree. As for the birthday party, Greenup said the residents of the hall are looking forward to spending time on Sunday with the alumnae who once lived there. “It’s nice to know that someday I’ll be like them,” Greenup said. “I have a feeling I’ll be doing this again in 50 years.”

under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act on Sept. 30. ● Maryland has carried out research to understand the state’s health insurance marketplace and health expenditures, as well as how to make health care costs and quality more transparent. It has hosted more than 35 public meetings with hundreds participating. ● Colorado has had 10 community forums on developing an exchange, attended by about 1,200 people. It also is conducting research and economic analyses on the state’s health insurance market. Kansas Insurance Commissioner Sandy Praeger said she believes the state also is on track to implement an exchange by 2014. The department has been working with an internal committee for months. The department is having its first public meeting about an exchange from 10 a.m. to noon Thursday in the Maner Conference Center in Topeka. Attendees will have the opportunity to volunteer to participate in various working groups. “We want input from insurance industry representatives, nonprofit health organizations and consumers. It’s vital that we receive input from Kansans concerning how to make this a statebased activity,” Praeger said. So far the state has received $1 million in federal grants to implement an insurance exchange. They’ve used some of the money to develop an electronic health information system.

Both thenGov. Mark Parkinson and incoming Gov. Sam Brownback agreed to the application. “Thus far we’ve received good support from the new administration,” Praeger said. “Nobody has given me any indication that a repeal will hold the state back.” She said there’s a lot of work ahead. The Legislature will have to make a lot of decisions. For example, will the exchange be a state agency or separate nonprofit with a board of directors? Praeger expects most of the proposals will go before the Legislature next year. “There’s just a whole range of options that will need to be considered and there will be pros and cons to all of them, and I am sure we will hear them,” she said. — Health reporter Karrey Britt can be reached at 832-7190.

Name delay With the many challenges currently facing the Lawrence school district, renaming local junior high/middle schools can wait.

A

project doesn’t have to cost a lot of money for it to be costly. We are concerned that the Lawrence school board will find this out the hard way as it takes up the issue of renaming the city’s junior high schools. The city’s four junior high schools — Central, South, Southwest and West — will undergo a major change next school year when ninth-graders move to the high schools and sixth-graders move from the elementary schools to the junior highs. At that point, the schools no longer will be junior highs but rather will be middle schools. Earlier this month school board members decided to add to the changes by considering new names for all the junior high schools. The board agreed on a 4-3 vote to move forward — not the best indicator of a smooth process to come. At Monday’s meeting, the board is set to form naming committees for each school. We would suggest instead that the board reconsider the entire idea. The Lawrence school district, like districts across the state, faces serious challenges. School funding will be a dicey topic in the state Legislature. The issue of faculty pay and retention is an ever-present concern. And a critical discussion regarding neighborhood schools and how to best provide a quality education in an efficient manner must be had. During this important time, a majority of the board proposes to have a conversation about whether simple words such as Central, South, West and Southwest strike the right chord. The process sets up possible debates about whether this “famous Lawrencian” deserves recognition over that famous Lawrencian. We will disagree over the history and meaning of the current names and likely open up old wounds in the process. And to top it off, many residents who don’t have children in the schools will become mighty confused. For many, this naming exercise sounds a bit like a fiddle playing amid a burning Rome. For the more cynical, it may bring to mind the scene of a magician asking you to look over here while the trick is actually performed over there. It would be a shame if the Lawrence school district spends one of its most valuable assets — the energy and engagement of the public — on this issue. That is the true cost of this proposal: The spending of public goodwill. School names are important, and perhaps at some future time the board should take up the issue. But for now, the board should ask itself the age old question: What’s in a name? In this case the answer is clear: The potential for a needless fight.

GOP should debunk health bill figures WASHINGTON — Suppose someone — say, the president of United States — proposed the following: We are drowning in debt. More than $14 trillion right now. I’ve got a great idea for deficit reduction. It will yield a savings of $230 billion over the next 10 years: We increase spending by $540 billion while we increase taxes by $770 billion. He’d be laughed out of town. And yet, this is precisely what the Democrats are claiming as a virtue of Obamacare. During the

debate over Republican attempts to repeal it, one of the Democrats’ major talking points has been that Obamacare reduces the deficit — and therefore repeal raises it — by $230 billion. Why, the Congressional Budget Office says exactly that. Very true. And very convincing. Until you realize where that number comes from. Explains CBO Director Douglas Elmendorf in his “preliminary analysis of H.R. 2” (the Republican health care repeal): “CBO anticipates that enacting H.R. 2 would probably yield, for the 2012-2021 period, a reduction in revenues in the neighborhood of $770 billion and a reduction in outlays in the vicinity of $540 billion.” As National Affairs editor Yuval Levin pointed out when mining this remarkable nugget, this is a hell of a way to do deficit reduction: a radical increase in spending, topped by an even more radical increase in new taxes. Of course, the very numbers that yield this $230 billion “deficit reduction” are phony to

begin with. The CBO is required to accept every assumption, promise (of future spending cuts, for example) and chronological gimmick that Congress gives it. All the CBO then does is perform the calculation and spit out the result. In fact, the whole Obamacare bill was gamed to produce a favorable CBO number. Most glaringly, the new entitlement it creates — government-subsidized health insurance for 32 million Americans — doesn’t kick in until 2014. That was deliberately designed so any projection for this decade would only cover six years of expenditures — while that same 10-year projection would capture 10 years of revenues. With 10 years of money inflow versus six years of outflow, the result is a positive — i.e., deficit-reducing — number. Surprise. If you think that’s audacious, consider this: Obamacare does not create just one new entitlement (health insurance for everyone); it actually creates a second — long-term care insurance. With an aging population, and with long-term care becoming extraordinarily expensive, this promises to be the biggest budget buster in the history of

the welfare state. And yet, in the CBO calculation, this new entitlement to long-term care reduces the deficit over the next 10 years. By $70 billion, no less. How is this possible? By collecting premiums now, and paying out no benefits for the first 10 years. Presto: a (temporary) surplus. As former CBO Director Douglas Holtz-Eakin and scholars Joseph Antos and James Capretta note, “Only in Washington could the creation of a reckless entitlement program be used as ‘offset’ to grease the way for another entitlement.” I would note additionally that only in Washington could such a neat little swindle be titled the “CLASS Act” (for the Community Living Assistance Services and Supports Act). That a health care reform law of such enormous size and consequence, revolutionizing onesixth of the U.S. economy, could be sold on such flimflammery is astonishing, even by Washington standards. What should Republicans do? Make the case. Explain the phony numbers, boring as the exercise may be. Better still, hold hearings and let the CBO director, whose integrity is beyond

reproach, explain the numbers himself. To be sure, the effect on the deficit is not the only criterion by which to judge Obamacare. But the tossing around of such clearly misleading bumper-sticker numbers calls into question the trustworthiness of other happy claims about Obamacare. Such as the repeated promise that everyone who likes his current health insurance will be able to keep it. Sure, but only if your employer continues to offer it. In fact, millions of workers will find themselves adrift because their employers will have every incentive to dump them onto the public rolls. This does not absolve the Republicans from producing a health care replacement. They will and should be judged by how well their alternative addresses the needs of the uninsured and the anxieties of the currently insured. But amending an insanely complicated, contradictory, incoherent and arbitrary 2,000page bill that will generate tens of thousands of pages of regulations is a complete nonstarter. Everything begins with repeal. — Charles Krauthammer is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.

PUBLIC FORUM JFK inspired youthful outlook Fluoride concern

Once upon a time, on a snowfilled day when we were young, we saw a man give a speech from a podium in front of the Capitol building. Do you remember? He had just taken the oath of office to become our president and now he faced us for the first time in that role. And he had hair, remember that? A thick helmet of brown hair. You noted it because we had learned to think of presidents as having gray hair, or none at all. But here was this new president, this John F. Kennedy, and he had dark hair and a beautiful wife and two little kids. It was 1961 — Jan. 20, 1961, in fact, half a century ago this week. It was the space age, the transistor age, the rock ’n’ roll age; we had outlasted the troubles of the ’30s, defeated the great menace of the ’40s, escaped the grim, gray ’50s and now, here we were, fresh and energized, embarking on this new era, ready to take on the world. So it just felt right, just seemed to fit, on a snowy day when we were so young, to have a brand-new president who was so young, too. Have you ever noticed how nobody remembers what a president says on his first day on the job? He delivers this big speech that is supposed to lay out the themes for the four years to follow, but it is rare that the speech proves memorable. Does anyone recall what Obama said? Or Clinton? Or Coolidge, Hayes, Grant, Jackson or Pierce? Yes, we remember what Franklin Roosevelt said: “We have nothing to fear but fear itself.” And we remember what Abraham Lincoln said: “With malice toward none, with charity for all ...” As it turned out, we would

voice to an invigorating ideal: that we were more than just flotsam in the current of human events, more than just impotent witnesses to the triumphs and tragedies of our day, that we had an obligation to our nation and that, in meeting it, we could change the world.”

impotent witnesses to the triumphs and tragedies of our day, that we had an obligation to our nation and that, in meeting it, we could change the world. It drove us into military service, it drove us into public service, it drove us into the Peace Corps, to live and work in the undeveloped world. Suddenly, the air was charged with the understanding that we could do. And maybe that last sentence sounds incomplete to you. But see, the lesson wasn’t about what we could do, or how we could do, but “that” we could do, that transformation lived within our hands. We were so young on that snow-filled day. This was before we learned that Kennedy was fooling around with Marilyn and anyone else in a skirt. It was before we knew he was debilitated by bad health. It was before the riot in Watts, before the plumbers burgled that DNC office in the Watergate complex, before a helicopter plucked our people from a rooftop in Saigon, before we were held hostage at an embassy in Tehran, before the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. It was before the Ambassador Hotel, the Lorraine Motel. It was before Dallas. More to the point, it was before we learned to lower our expectations and wear cynicism like armor into an often disappointing world. We have come a great distance from that snow-filled day half a century ago. We are young sometimes, still ... But we have never managed to be quite that young again.

remember, too, what John F. Kennedy said on that snowy day when we were young. “... the torch has been passed to a new generation of Americans, born in this century ... “... we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe ...” And, most famously: “Ask not what your country can do for you — ask what you can do for your country.” Sounds odd 50 years on, doesn’t it? We have grown used to presidents extolling the things we can have. Here was a — Leonard Pitts Jr., winner of the president imploring us to give. It had a bracing effect upon 2004 Pulitzer Prize for commentary, is us, for it gave voice to an invig- a columnist for the Miami Herald.

To the editor: Nearly two weeks ago, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recommended lowering the levels of fluoride in drinking water. As a fluoridated city, I expected to see an article in the Journal-World about this radical shift in health thinking. For 50 years we’ve been told to drink, brush, swish and swallow. Now, all of a sudden, 40 percent of kids have fluorosis. It seems like only the anti-fluoride camp saw it coming. Why? In light of this reversal, are there other fluorideconnected health issues we should also be concerned about? Looking over the city’s water report, our fluoride levels frequently surpass this new recommendation. So what’s being done about it? Does anyone care? There is also a free fluoride treatment coming up next week for low-income children. How does this new announcement impact it? Is it even needed or would the additional fluoride be a problem? On a larger scale, where does the sodium fluoride that ends up in our water come from? Nationally, most is from China’s manufacturing and mining. What about ours? How about even larger. Why is there no difference in cavity occurrences between the U.S. and Europe/Asia where they don’t add it to their drinking water? Or even between Lawrence and Wichita? C’mon J-W, this story should be covered. There are many angles/perspectives to this story the public should at least get the chance to learn about. Gabe Hunninghake, Lawrence

Casino outlook dim TOPEKA (AP) — The Kansas Lottery still has no proposals for building a state-owned casino in the state’s southeast corner, and has set a new application deadline of April 21. The deadline was set to expire Thursday, but the Lottery Commission agreed to extend it even though state officials aren’t expecting any proposals to emerge. The Quapaw Tribe opened a casino just across the Oklahoma state line. Many Kansas officials now believe a state law requiring a developer to invest $225 million in the project prevents it from being economically viable.

KU-Texas battle looms

Kansas coach Self: UT terrific By Gary Bedore gbedore@ljworld.com

Kansas University basketball coach Bill Self sat in front of his big-screen TV on Wednesday night and watched the Jayhawks’ next opponent, Texas, rout rival Texas A&M, 81-60, in Austin. “Texas is very impressive,” Self said of the (15-3, 3-0) No. 10ranked Longhorns, who meet the No. 2 (18-0, 3-0) Jayhawks at 3 p.m., Saturday, in Allen Fieldhouse. “They played great against a one-loss team.

What makes Longhorns different from last year? Editor’s note: The following is an entry from Eric Sorrentino’s Conference Chatter blog, which takes a look at features and trends in the Big 12, on KUsports.com. In trying to gauge how much of a threat the University of Texas basketball team will pose to Kansas University’s six straight Big 12 titles, it would be easy to look at UT’s 3-0 conference start this season and think, “same story, different year.” Remember last season? Texas started 17-0 and climbed to No. 1 in The Associated Press poll. The Longhorns began Big 12 play 3-0 last season as well. They ended the season, however, with a catastrophic nosedive into irrelevance. Texas finished 7-10 the rest of the way, with a first-round exit in the NCAA Tournament. To think the Longhorns will

TOPEKA INVITATIONAL BASKETBALL TOURNAMENT

LHS struggles in fourth quarter of loss By Clark Goble Journal-World Sports Writer

Kevin Anderson/Journal-World Photo

LAWRENCE HIGH’S LOGAN HENRICHS (32) TRIES to get past a Wichita East defender. LHS lost, 50-46, on Thursday at Topeka High.

T O P E K A — Lawrence High coach Mike Lewis knew the Lions had to slow down Wichita East in order to have a chance to win. And by using a 2-3 zone and keeping the ball in their possession as long as possible, the Lions found themselves up five early in the fourth quarter. But the same shots that fell in the first quarters just wouldn’t fall in the fourth, and the Aces squeaked out a 50-46 win in the first round of the Topeka Invitational Tournament at Topeka High School.

UP NEXT The Lawrence High boys basketball team (3-7) will face Topeka Highland Park (7-2) at 5 p.m. today at the Topeka Invitational Tournament at Topeka High. “The story of our season — we really need to finish,” Lewis said. The Lions didn’t score a field goal in the fourth quarter, settling for six points on free throws. Several shots went in and out of the rim. A layup by junior Anthony Buffalomeat was halfway down before slipping out.

“It’s frustrating,” junior Logan Henrichs said. “You hit them early and you ask yourself, ‘Why didn’t they fall now?’” Down three with under a minute to go, Henrichs drove to the basket, but missed a short shot. A mad scramble for the rebound ensued, and a jump ball gave Wichita East the possession. Ja’In Williams hit one of two free throws to give the Aces a two-possession lead. “Towards the end there we had an opportunity to hit a few shots, and we didn’t,” Lewis said. “But I’m proud of the way our guys competed.” Lawrence High (3-7) jumped out to an early 7-2 lead in the

game, which started about 20 minutes late because Wichita East’s bus had mechanical issues on the snowy roads. The Lions warmed up, cooled down and then warmed up again before the tipoff. Lewis said he could think of a couple ways to handle that situation, inferring that the team is ultimately responsible for getting to the gym on time. “I kind of felt like I was on their schedule. And that’s not a real good feeling,” Lewis said. But the odd start didn’t affect the Lions much. Behind seven points from Henrichs, LHS led Please see LHS, page 3B

Anthony trade drama continues DENVER (AP) — Carmelo Anthony was hammered by J.R. Smith during a spirited 5-on-5 scrimmage at practice on Thursday.

Bryant said he’s only been booed at home once in his 15 years with the Lakers and that was in the 2007-08 opener after saying during that offseason that he wanted to be traded. He said the fans came around when they saw him playing hard. Anthony’s been playing hard,

too, but the drama has been playing out since last summer, when Anthony declined to sign a threeyear, $65 million extension with the Nuggets. Bryant played with Anthony at the 2008 Olympics. “It has nothing to do with a bigger market,” Bryant said. “It’s about winning. If you want to keep a player here, make the right decisions, make the right choices, personnel. Get a team around a guy that will help you win and there will be no problems.”

COMMENTARY

Jets two wins away from ruling N.Y. By Neil Best Newsday

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — In spite of all the excitement, New York remains a Giant town. That’s how Sports Illustrated put it, anyway; the sentence above comes from a story that accompanied a headline reading, “In The Big Apple The Jets Are Always Second Banana.” It was not a novel or controversial position. It is received New York sports wisdom handed down over generations, rarely disputed even by fans of the green and white. Oh, one other thing: The above story, by former Jets beat writer Paul Zimmerman, appeared in the issue of Sept. 29, 1986, whose cover featured Lawrence Taylor and Mark Gastineau. That was four Halas and three Lombardi Trophies ago for the Giants, a quarter century that further has cemented a perception seemingly frozen in amber. In spite of all the excitement over the Jets, New York remains a Giant town. Right? Unless . . . it’s a myth. Here is the reality: For all of the Giants’ longer history and greater success, and despite the Jets’ image as inferiority-complex-afflicted also-rans, the balance of power is not as tilted as it appears. Like it or not, Giants fans, the Jets likely are two victories away from taking over the town. Not forever, but for now. The closest parallel is the dynamic between the Yankees and Mets, whose histories are similar to those of the Giants and Jets, with an important difference: Unlike the Jets, people under 50 can remember when the Mets won it all. And when they did, boy did it change everything. “We certainly sensed that we were taking over the baseball town,” Keith Hernandez said Wednesday, recalling the tide turning through the mid-’80s, thanks to him as much as anyone. “Our feeling was, ’Gosh, there have been a lot of closet Mets fans and closet National League fans. I think a lot of people were just awakened.” That clearly has happened with the Jets the past two seasons. Phil Simms has noticed, after three decades as a Giants quarterback, TV analyst and New Jersey resident. “I sense it with my friends,” he said. “I didn’t realize there were so many Jets fans . . . When you have success it breeds new fans.” I know what you’re thinking, Giants fans. In 10 years covering the team I, too, was guilty of looking at the Jets as the junior varsity. But fact is, even without a Super Bowl appearance since 1969, the interest gap between the two teams isn’t as great as you might think. The most objective measure available is TV ratings, and they are a bit of a shock. In 2010 the Jets edged the Giants, averaging 15.8 percent of area homes in the regular season to 15.7 for Big Blue, ending a five-year streak in which the Giants led. But in the eight seasons before that, beginning with Bill Parcells’ arrival in 1997, the Jets were 5-2-1, surpassing or matching the Giants in every season but 1999 and 2001. The Giants do consistently lead in merchandise sales, but not always by much. Through the end of the 2010 regular season, the Giants ranked seventh in the NFL, the Jets 10th. Eli Manning jerseys ranked eighth among individuals, with Mark Sanchez 10th. “I think it’s an old issue,” Jets offensive tackle D’Brickashaw Ferguson said of the Jets’ quest to be noticed locally. “Our motivating factor is just that we want to win, and to be the best in the NFL.” That is, and always has been, the bottom line. As Zimmerman wrote in the final sentence of that long-ago SI story: New York will never turn down a winner.

Wozniacki, Djokovic advance MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA — Caroline Wozniacki beat Dominika Cibulkova 6-4, 6-3 on Friday to reach the fourth round of the Australian Open and avenge last week’s loss in a tuneup tournament. Wozniacki, playing her first Grand Slam as the world No. 1, advanced to the fourth round for the seventh consecutive major but has yet to win one of tennis’ marquee events. Novak Djokovic, who beat Roger Federer in the semifinals here in 2008 en route to the championship, advanced Friday after playing just one set of this third-round match against Davis Cup teammate Viktor Troicki. He was leading 6-2 when Troicki retired with a stomach muscle strain. Andy Roddick overcame a slow start before powering home with 32 aces to beat Robin Haase 2-6, 7-6 (2), 6-2, 6-2 and move into the fourth round.

Baylor women’s coach praises KU CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1B

December after recording a 88108 mark in two-plus seasons. Brown told the AP he enjoys watching former assistants, such as Self and John Calipari of Kentucky, succeed. “I feel like I'm part of that,” Brown said. KU coach Self worked as a grad assistant on Brown’s 1985-86 Jayhawk staff. “This probably isn’t for me to say, but coach was born to coach,” Self said Thursday. “I’d be shocked if he didn’t want to coach again. No matter what he does, he will always be one of the great coaches of all time. Certainly he’s still got the energy and is hungry. If he wants to coach again, he’s definitely earned the right.” ●

GameDay info: ESPN’s College GameDay Driven by State Farm will be televised live from Allen Fieldhouse a week from Saturday. The telecast will start at 9 a.m., on ESPNU and continue at 10 a.m., on ESPN. For every person who attends the morning show, State Farm will donate $1 to Hawk Zone. This student organization helps increase student involvement in campus athletics. The GameDay crew of Rece Davis, Jay Bilas, Hubert Davis and Digger Phelps will preview the 6 p.m., KU-Kansas State game. The morning show is free to the public. ●

Mulkey praises KU: Baylor women’s basketball coach Kim Mulkey, whose Bears routed KU, 76-37, on Wednesday night at Allen Fieldhouse, told ESPN.com she drew

inspiration from watching KU’s men team club Baylor, 85-65, on Monday in Waco. “They put on a clinic at our place,” Mulkey told ESPN. “I love what that team did. And a lot of things they did, I translated it to our basketball team because we try to run some of the same stuff Bill (Self) does. “It started with our defense on the ball. I think Odyssey Sims brings a dimension to our team with her relentless on-ball pressure, and it makes everybody else be active on the wings.” ●

Odds: A Kenpom.comTwitter message on Thursday revealed KU’s odds of winning the Big 12 stand at 76.8 percent. Texas’ odds of winning equal 21.8 percent; Texas A&M 1.1 percent. Everyone else stands 0.3 percent. ●

Daniels update: DeAndre Daniels, a 6-8 senior forward from IMG Academies in Bradenton, Fla., still is deciding whether to attend classes at KU, Texas or Kentucky second semester or remain at IMG, Andy Borman, IMG director of basketball tells Zagsblog.net. “Right now, we’re still waiting,” Borman said. “DeAndre and his dad, I give them a lot of credit. They’ve been extremely thorough with this recruiting process. They’ve still got another four or five days before they’ve got to make up their mind. Choosing between those three schools and also the possibility of coming back to IMG in the second semester, I know it’s not one that they take lightly. But I think we’ll all get our verdict pretty soon on that.”

BRIEFLY Eudora’s Mays named MVP at bowl game Eudora High senior Boomer Mays was recently named defensive MVP for the West squad in the All-American Bowl in Baton Rouge, La. Mays, 6-foot-1, 220 pounds, made 13 tackles (eight unassisted, five assisted), with two tackles for loss in the Dec. 31, 2010 game. The East team beat Mays’ West squad, 31-21. Mays, a first-team JournalWorld All-Area selection, played through sickness in the All-American game. He came down with the flu bug and couldn’t even make it through practice the day before the game. As a linebacker, Mays had 110 tackles last fall and 404 for his Eudora career. As a fullback, he rushed 113 times for 724 yards and 12 touchdowns last season for the Cardinals (6-4). Mays has orally committed to play football next season at Northern Illinois. He projects as a linebacker/long snapper at the next level.

player. Hamilton, along with KU’s Marcus Morris, are my two front-runners to this point for Big 12 player of the year. ● Barnes couldn’t figure out a consistent rotation last season, when eight players averaged at least 19 minutes per game. This year, only five players average at least 19 minutes per game. Roles are more clearly defined. For example: Point guard/offensive facilitator: Cory Joseph (plays the 1). Defensive specialist: Dogus Balbay (plays 2). Primary scorer: Hamilton (3). Glue/hustle guy: Gary Johnson (4). Legitimate inside presence on offense/defense, shot blocker: Tristan Thompson (5). Sixth man: J’Covan Brown. ● Freshmen Thompson and Joseph sparked the Longhorns immediately

upon their arrival on the court. Texas seems to have better chemistry this season with the Canada natives in the starting lineup. Odd, considering the Longhorns had seniors Damion James, Dexter Pittman and Justin Mason last season. Again, though, roles were up in the air and with eight to 10 players getting consistent playing time, rhythm was hard to find on a game-to-game basis. Joseph, who has drawn comparisons to former UT guard D.J. Augustin, has given the Longhorns a steady point guard and facilitator, a missing component from last season. A solid point guard seems to be imperative with Barnes’ best teams. T.J. Ford led Texas to a Final Four in 2003, while Augustin was the floor general for the 2008 Elite Eight team. Thompson is incredibly active in the paint. He leads the Big 12 in offensive rebounds and ranks second in blocked shots per game. He plays at a seemingly big-

16-13 at the end of the first quarter. Wichita East, known to push the ball in transition whenever possible, seemed stymied by the Lions’ zone, often settling for off-balance outside shots or turning the ball over. When the Lions had the ball, they valued the possession and took all the time they wanted to find an open shot. At the end of the third quarter, the Lions held a 40-37 lead behind hot shooting from junior KJ Pritchard, who finished with 20 points. Though they picked up defensive stops late, they just couldn’t score enough to hold off the Aces. Lewis said the team really wanted to play in tonight’s 8:30 game in front of an expected large crowd in “The Dungeon,” the nickname for Topeka High’s gymnasium, a unique venue with very little room around the court and nearly vertical stands. It’s also the 50th anniversary of the Topeka Invitational Tournament, so Topeka residents are also expected to

TOP 25 MEN

No. 18 Badgers edge Indiana The Associated Press

No. 18 Wisconsin 69, Indiana 60 MADISON, WIS. — Jordan Taylor rattled off basket after basket to keep Wisconsin from falling too far behind early. The rest of the Badgers picked up his aggressive approach in the second half. Taylor scored a career-high 28 points to lead Wisconsin to a victory over Indiana on Thursday night for the Badgers’ 14th straight win in the Kohl Center. “It was a fun night,” Taylor said. An incredible performance, too. Taylor’s best night so far at Wisconsin (14-4, 4-2 Big Ten) came just five days after a 22point outburst in a victory over then-No. 16 Illinois. “He wasn’t afraid to attack and make some things happen,” Wisconsin coach Bo Ryan said. “Jordan, as people are finding out, is a pretty good player. He’s been very instrumental in putting us in the position we’re in right now and we’re def initely going to need him to continue to play like that, that’s for sure.” Taylor went 9-of-15 from the field, hit three threepointers and grabbed a teamhigh eight rebounds with four assists. His effort left a strong impression with Indiana coach Tom Crean. “Jordan Taylor is not only one of the premier guards in the league — that’s obvious — he’s one premier guards in the country. It’s not just because he played great tonight,” Crean said. “He defends hard, he’s tough, he’s strong and he’s just a cut above.” Taylor and Jon Leuer, who finished with 20 points for his 25th straight game in double

But Indiana couldn’t get much closer. Leading by four, Leuer banked in a flailing shot and was fouled, converting the three-point play to make it 65-58 with 1 minute left and put the game out of reach. “They just made some big plays. I thought a backbreaking play was Leuer’s play as the shot clock was winding down,” said Crean, who fell to 1-24 on the road with Indiana since taking over the beleaguered program three seasons ago. “I don’t think there’s any question these guys are close.” Wisconsin relied on its defense to change the momentum early in the second half, too, with an 8-0 run capped by Mike Bruesewitz’s dunk and free throw to give Wisconsin a 44-42 lead, its first since the opening minutes. Hulls put Indiana back up by a point with a layup a few minutes later, but Taylor converted a three-point play and Nankivil hit a baseline jumper that gave Wisconsin a 52-48 lead with 9:16 left.

Colorado guard Alec Burks lone Big 12 selection on list of midseason standouts By Stephen Hawkins Associated Press Basketball Writer

Imagine John Wall and DeMarcus Cousins still on the court together at Kentucky, instead of being among the NBA’s best rookies. Or Xavier Henry playing another season for undefeated Kansas. But in an era of one-anddone players in college basketball, they all came and then went quickly to the pros. What about some of the first-year stars from last season who stayed for a second go-round in college? There are several now following up impressive debuts with equally or even better seasons. Wall was drafted No. 1 overall after being the SEC player of the year as a freshman and Cousins, tabbed the league’s freshman of the year, was the f ifth overall pick. Henry became the first Jayhawks player to go pro after only one season. Among those who stayed are a pair of players named Williams starring on opposite sides of the country and a non-major still standing out Jack Dempsey/AP File Photo among the big boys.

The 6-3 guard was the first Patriot League rookie of the year who also was the league’s player of the year at the same time. He capped his freshman season with 26 points against top-seeded Kansas in the NCAA tournament. This season, he also leads Lehigh with 7.2 rebounds a game and 46 steals, and has a four-game streak with at least 23 points in each. He has gone over 30 points three times, including a 42-point game. Alec Burks, Colorado After being somewhat of a hidden recruiting gem for the Buffaloes, Burks was the Big 12’s top freshman last season, when he averaged 17.1 points and became the first Colorado freshman to lead the team in rebounding (5.0 a game). The 6-6 long-armed guard is now the league’s second-leading scorer at 19.8 points a game. After opening this season with five consecutive 20point games, he now has 11. He had a career-high 36 points when Colorado won its first Big 12 opener in 14 years with an upset victory over thenNo. 9 Missouri. It was the Buffs’ last Big 12 opener — they move to the expanded Pac-12 next season. Maalik Wayns, Villanova The only thing that kept Wayns from playing much as a freshman was being a guard on a Final Four team that had a backcourt of Scottie Reynolds and Corey Fisher. With Reynolds gone, the 6-2 Wayns is now starting with Fisher and is flourishing. A quick burst and reliable floater has helped Wayns average 13.5 points and 5.3 assists a game for the Wildcats. In the Big East opener, he had nine points, nine assists and eight rebounds. He had another game with 21 points, eight assists and four steals. He was limited to 15 minutes a game as a freshman, when he still had 6.8 points and 1.3 assists a game.

Fans of fake news should not miss the pitch-perfect parody “Onion News Network” (9 p.m., IFC). A send-up of the loud, vacant and self-absorbed content of most cable news and much local news, ONN “stars” Suzanne Sena as the vain, aggressive and brittle host Brooke Alvarez, a woman who inserts herself into every story. I really can’t say enough about her performance. Everything from her hair and makeup, outfits and body language is spot on. She deserves some kind of award. And believe me, Brooke Alvarez is out to win it! One of the reason’s Sena’s “Brooke” seems so natural is that Sena has appeared on both Fox News, E!, a Dallas CBS affiliate and on “Extra” as a weekend anchor. She knows the world she lampoons. Other “Onion” features include clips from their sister morning show “Today Now!” the celebrity-obsessed “Star Fix” and “Cross Examination with Shelby Cross” a Nancy Grace-like former prosecutor who seems certain that the accused are always guilty. If, like many viewers, you’ve long since determined that cable news is one sad joke, the at least “Onion News Network” may provide some laughs. ● Frequently more stained and strange than laugh-out-loud funny, “Portlandia” (9:30 p.m., IFC) is essentially as small as its subject. Comedian Fred Armisen (“Saturday Night Live”) and musician Carrie Brownstein play a wide range of characters of both genders who live out slightly delusional lives of political correctness in and around the city of Portland, Ore. They include the owners of a militantly feminist bookstore, an angry bike messenger, chirpy crafts people and others. Executive produced by Armisen’s “SNL” boss Lorne Michaels, “Portlandia” will feature a parade of special guest stars including Selma Blair, Aimee Mann, Sarah McLachlan and Gus Van Sant. Kyle MacLachlan will portray the mayor of Portland. And Sam Adams, the real mayor of Portland, will also guest star. ● “Spartacus: Gods of the Arena” (9 p.m., Starz) is not so much a second season of the blood-and-sex costume soap opera, but a prequel that takes us to the gladiator training of the House of Batiatus in the years before the arrival of Spartacus. Andy Whitfield who played the title role in the first season was forced to leave the series for health reasons. Australian actor Liam McIntyre will replace him when production of “Spartacus” resumes. ● ”Fringe“ (8 p.m., Fox) takes its most daunting trip of all, the voyage to Friday nights, a place where few Fox series have survived. Look for Christopher Lloyd (”Back To The Future“) to guest star in this midseason premiere.

Tonight’s other highlights ● Career changes separate Allison and Joe on the series finale of ”Medium“ (7 p.m., CBS). ● A family restaurant founders on ”Kitchen Nightmares“ (7 p.m., Fox). ● Prospecting under deadline on ”Gold Rush: Alaska“ (9 p.m., Discovery).

Dear Annie: I have been in a relationship with a wonderful man for four years. Six months ago, we were blessed with a little boy who has become our world. The problem is, “Greg” is constantly going out of his way for his family. Recently, his sister was in a car accident, and her husband refused to give her the money to pay the deductible for repairs, so Greg gave her his car to use. This has left us in a rough spot. I work from home but still need to run occasional errands, and Greg now uses my car. The only solution is for me to drive him to and from his job, which is a huge inconvenience. I don’t see why I have to do that for his sister’s sake. When I talk to Greg about this, all I get is an argument. I understand he loves his family and wants to help, but it’s always one thing after another, and I’m at my wits’ end. How can I help him understand that it’s time to let them handle their own problems? I’m tired of feeling like my son and I are on the back burner. — Burning Up in Vermont

Bobcats 100, 76ers 97 C H A R L O T T E , N . C . — D.J. Augustin scored a careerhigh 31 points, including four free throws in the final 11 seconds, Gerald Henderson added three big baskets late, and the Charlotte Bobcats beat the Philadelphia 76ers on Thursday night. Avenging an overtime defeat to the 76ers four days earlier, the Bobcats won their second straight game the same night they found out forward Tyrus Thomas would be out up two months with a knee injury. Thaddeus Young scored 15 of his 21 points in the fourth quarter for the Sixers, who rallied from an eight-point deficit to take the lead before Henderson hit three consecutive jumpers. Andre Iguodala added 19 points, but missed a free throw and a jumper in the final minute in Philadelphia’s second straight loss. After Augustin’s 25-point first half, the Bobcats turned to an unlikely offensive weapon to thwart the Sixers’ comeback. Henderson, a bit player under former coach Larry Brown, has become part of the rotation but hardly known for his shooting until it mattered against the Sixers. He hit three consecutive jumpers on the same curl play from the right wing in the final 1:40. The last came with 26 seconds left to put Charlotte ahead 96-93. Iguodala missed a fadeaway on the next possession before Augustin put it away at the foul line.
