Most sex predators never make it out of treatment More have died while in Kansas program than have been released since it began By Shaun Hittle

A Douglas County jury recently found that 42-year-old Kodi Thomas was a sexually violent predator and sent him into state custody for treatment. Thomas, convicted of at-

tempted rape and burglary in 1996, will join 216 other sex offenders at the Larned State Hospital in the Sexual Predator Treatment Program. A look at the numbers shows Thomas likely will spend many years in treatment before he’ll be released into society, if he ever is.

More people have actually died from natural causes while in the program than have been released since the program’s inception in 1994, according to the Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services. Seventeen have died; three have been released.

“You don’t get out of here,” said Mark Brull, a convicted sex offender confined to the program on and off since 1999. During that time, Kansas has spent roughly $700,000, or about $60,000 per year, treating Brull, who was convicted of aggravated sexual

Students offer Kan. history refresher By Christine Metz

Happy Kansas Day! As Kansas enters its 151st year, we thought everyone could use a refresher on our state facts. We visited with local fourth-graders, who just so happen to be studying Kansas history. Here’s what they had to share:

Payroll totals in 2010 for the construction industry in Douglas County shrank by almost $29 million compared with 2005, according to a new U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis study.

Report shows area industries with growing, shrinking compensation By Chad Lawhorn

It is a magic trick even Houdini would be proud of: pop one bubble and make nearly $29 million worth of paychecks disappear. A new set of federal numbers provide a glimpse at just how much Douglas County workers and businesses have suffered following the bursting of the housing bubble and the recession that ensued. In 2010, the payroll totals for Douglas County’s construction industry

had shrunk by $28.9 million compared with what they were in 2005, according to a new study from the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis. Construction workers were hit the hardest, but they certainly weren’t alone. The BEA’s County Compensation report found that 633 counties in the country — out of just more than 3,100 nationwide — saw total countywide compensation numbers decrease in 2010. And, yep, you guessed it, Douglas County found itself in the losing category. Here’s a look at other findings from

the report. The report only provides data through 2010, but as they say in kindergarten classes and Soviet soup lines, you get what you get, and you don’t throw a fit.

Luckey officiating. The family will receive friends in the Mayflower Room of the church following the service. Mr. Blank died Thursday, Jan. 26, 2012, at Lawrence Memorial Hospital. He was born Aug. 16, 1928, in Sedan, Kan., the son of Merrell and Lela Hurst Blank. He served in the U.S. Army Reserves from 195053, and attained the rank of Sergeant. Mr. Blank was a professional photographer, and owned and operated Hixon Studio & Camera Shop for over 40 years.

LOUIS L. FRYDMAN Louis L. Frydman passed away peacefully on January 24, 2012 after a long battle with prostate cancer. Lou was born in Lodz, Poland on July 1, 1930. His parents were Ryvka Ekerman and Chaim Majer Frydman. Lou and his brother Abraham Frydman, just 1 1/2 years Lou’s senior, were the only members of their large extended family to survive the Holocaust. Lou and Abraham survived three ghettos, numerous concentration camps, and three death marches. At the war’s end Lou was less than 15 years of age. For a year the brothers attended a U.N.-administered school for orphans of many nationalities and religions. They then came to the United States. Lou earned a Bachelor of Arts degree with Honors in Sociology from the City College of New York in 1954, a Master of Social Work degree from Columbia University in 1956, and a Doctorate in Psychology from Yeshiva University in 1968. After receiving his Master’s degree, Lou was employed as a therapist at the Jewish Family Service in Cincinnati. Later he worked at the Westchester Jewish Community Services in White Plains, N.Y. and also as an Adjunct Professor at New York University. In 1969 Lou and his family came to Lawrence where he taught at the KU School of Social Welfare until his retirement approximately 12 years ago. In addition to teaching his social welfare courses Lou made frequent presentations about his Holocaust experiences to KU students, to students in public schools in Lawrence and Perry, and to students at St. John’s Catholic School. He also made presentations at Fort Riley, the Lawrence Jewish Community Center, and elsewhere. In May 2007 Lou was the featured speaker at the Holocaust Remembrance Service at the Kansas State Capitol. Lou also provided

testimony to the Survivors of the Shoah Visual History Foundation and the Fortunoff Video Archive for Holocaust Frydman Testimonies at Yale University. Upon his arrival in Kansas Lou set to work almost immediately to study the Kansas mental health system. Lou devoted himself for many years to changing the Kansas involuntary commitment statutes and later, after these laws were changed, he worked tirelessly to help empower groups of former mental patients. In the late 1970s Lou received funding from the Fulbright Committee and the National Institute of Mental Health which enabled him to travel to Poland to compare its mental health system to ours. Lou’s favorite activity was getting together with his family and friends who will always remember his keen sense of humor. He also enjoyed traveling and gardening. Throughout his life he read widely to deepen his knowledge about the Holocaust. In 1954 Lou married Jane Brunner in New York City. Lou is survived Jane and by their three sons: Dan and wife Bettie Frydman of St. Joseph, Missouri, John and wife Laurie Martin-Frydman of Lawrence, and Richard and wife Amy Lee, also of Lawrence. Lou is also survived by five grandchildren: Hannah, Jacob, Tess, Alyson, and Sofie Frydman, and by two step-grandchildren: Jason and Jacob Dickerson. The family requests no flowers. Those wishing to make a contribution in Lou’s memory are encouraged to contribute to a charity of their choosing. A celebration of Lou’s life will be held in the Spring of this year.

2009. But remember, none of these numbers is adjusted for inflation. Just to keep up with inflation in 2010, wages would have needed to grow by about 2 percent.

Hammered In 2005, the construction industry provided $115.8 million in paychecks in Douglas County. By 2010, that number had dropped to $86.8 million. That’s a decline of 25 percent. Biggest losers In terms of wages paid, there were three other broad categories that actually had total payrolls that were smaller in 2010 than in 2005: 1. Transportation and warehousing: loss of $14.8 million 2. Administrative services, a broad category that includes everything from janitorial services to travel agencies: loss of $8.5 million. 3. Finance and insurance: loss of $965,000. Biggest gainers Government jobs continue to be Lawrence’s foundation for the economy. Government payrolls, including local, state and federal, increased by $152.9 million, or 23 percent, during the 2005 to 2010 period. Others large gainers included: 1. Professional, scientific and technical services: $25.9 million in payroll gains. 2. Health care and social assistance: gain of $22.3 million. 3. Membership service organization and other services: gain of $22 million. 4. Retail trade: gain of $12.1 million. 5. Educational services, which include businesses ranging from school bus companies to testing services: gain of $11.8 million.

PROGRAM COST Cost of the Sexual Predator Treatment Program, in millions: # 2006: $9.17 # 2007: $11.06 # 2008: $11.89 # 2009: $11.33 # 2010: $12.87 # 2011: $12.97 — Information provided by SRS

releases of offenders are “not unique to Kansas,” said W.L. Fitch, who teaches mental health law at the University of Maryland School of Law. Once the law’s enacted, states are in a tough bind, Fitch said. Either offenders keep piling up in sex offender treatment programs, or offenders are released and possibly reoffend. “Politically, it’s a huge risk,” Fitch said. “You have some folks no one is going to take a chance on.” Critics of involuntary commitment of sex offenders argue that such programs do the “dirty work of the criminal justice system” and are in fact designed to keep offenders locked away with little hope of treatment, Fitch said. Douglas County District Attorney Charles Branson, however, said he sees the program geared toward longterm treatment and rehabilitation. counterparts across the state. Here’s a look at the growth rate for Douglas County payrolls from 2005 to 2010 compared with the statewide growth rate during that same time period: 1. Construction: Douglas County, down 25 percent; Statewide, up 7 percent. The report provides some pretty good evidence that the burst of the housing bubble made a louder bang in Lawrence than elsewhere else in the state. Interestingly, Lawrence construction payrolls started declining in 2006. Payrolls on the statewide level didn’t start declining until 2009. 2. Administrative services: Douglas County, down 16.7 percent; Statewide, up 24.8 percent. 3. Transportation and warehousing: Douglas County, down 27.8 percent; Statewide, up 5.8 percent. 4. Professional, scientific and technical services: Douglas County, up 19.3 percent; Statewide, up 28.1 percent. These are the high-tech, high-paying jobs Lawrence covets right now, so the city certainly wants to be above the statewide average in this category. 5. Health care: Douglas County, up 16.3 percent; Statewide, up 25.1 percent.

Ahead of the pack Douglas County does have some industries that are adding payroll at a rate faster than their counterparts in the state. 1. Information services, which include Internet companies, computers companies and a host of technical consulting firms: Douglas County, up 5 percent; Statewide, down 17.3 percent. 2. Real estate and leasing: Douglas County, up 36 percent; Statewide, up 7.3 percent 3. Retail trade: Douglas County, up 8.9 percent; Statewide, up 4.0 percent. 4. Manufacturing: Douglas County, up 4.3 percent; Statewide, up 3.1 percent. Lagging behind 5.

L AWRENCE J OURNAL -W ORLD And treating such offenders can take a significant amount of time, said Larned State Hospital Superintendent Christopher Burke, which leads to a cautious approach. “By the nature of their designation, they tend to have more-entrenched behaviors,” Burke said. Kansas’ treatment program consists of seven phases, starting with orientation at Larned and ending with a formal, court-approved release and transition back to society. Before a potential release, offenders progress to closely supervised reintegration at Osawatomie State Hospital and then along to conditional release at a residential facility in Miami County, where there are currently seven offenders from the program, Burke said. But instead of helping contain and treat sex offending behaviors, Brull said, the environment within the program has made him “100 times worse.” “Any kind of carnal under the sun you’re exposed to here,” he said. Brull said he’s currently in phase three of the program, but he’s given up on progressing. “I’ll either die here or die in prison,” he said. — Reporter Shaun Hittle can be reached at 832-7173.

ers have been talking about how the arts can be a bigger player in economic development. This provides some evidence the industry is growing, but it is worth noting that it produced only $9.5 million in wages in 2010, or about 0.4 percent of the county’s total.

The mix Douglas County’s economy brings to mind a saying about eggs and one basket. No surprise, government wages make up the largest percentage of the county’s total payroll. But if local leaders were hoping to reduce their dependence on government paychecks, they didn’t do so during the five-year period. In 2005, government jobs accounted for 34.6 percent of the compensation paid in Douglas County. By 2010, that number had grown to 37.6 percent. Here’s a look at the top-paying industries in Douglas County, measured by what percent their payrolls make up of the county’s total payroll, and how they compare with the economies in Johnson and Shawnee counties. 1. Government: Douglas, 37.6 percent of the county’s total payrolls; Shawnee, 27.7 percent; Johnson, 9.4 percent. 2. Manufacturing: Douglas, 10.1 percent; Shawnee, 7.5 percent; Johnson, 7.8 percent. 3. Professional/scientific/ tech.: Douglas, 7.3 percent; Shawnee, 4.9 percent; Johnson, 12.8 percent. 4. Health care: Douglas, 7.3 percent; Shawnee, 15.3 percent; Johnson, 9.9 percent. 5. Retail trade: Douglas, 6.8 percent; Shawnee, 5.1 percent; Johnson, 5.8 percent. And one last thing about paychecks: Lawrence’s bar and restaurant category generates 4 percent of Lawrence’s total payrolls. In both Shawnee and Johnson counties, they account for 2.5 percent.

Legislative action on KBA audit unclear TOPEKA — Kansas legislative leaders say they see little need for significant changes to laws governing the Kansas Bioscience Authority, despite a forensic audit that found instances of document destruction and misuse of funds and questioned the management style of its former president and CEO. The review by BKD Forensic and Valuation Services audit also highlighted how KBA spent its money on an $18 million office building, consultants and related expenses. House Speaker Mike O’Neal said he didn’t see where the audit found “systemic or structural” problems that would merit scrapping the authority. He said most of the blame seems to lie with former president and CEO Tom Thornton.

But advocates for the poor and children have defended the EITC. “More than 90 percent of Kansas’ EITC dollars go to families with children, and maintaining this tax credit is critical to ensuring that more children do not fall below the poverty line,” said Shannon Cotsoradis, president and chief executive officer of Kansas Action for Children. She said studies estimate 4,000 Kansas children would fall into poverty without the EITC.

PARTICIPANTS IN A BOOKBINDING WORKSHOP at KU’s Watson Library on Saturday learn the basics of creating handmade books. Participants learned four structures of creating bound books without glue, including accordion and stitched books.


A SELECTION OF COMPLETED PROJECTS from the bookbinding workshop.


Participants assembled four different structures: an accordion book, a pamphlet stitch, a sewn book and a tab book. All of the books were constructed without adhesive by using simple tools. On the table in front of each person was a collection of book-making devices: a pair of scissors, needle and thread, assorted paper and a bone folder. “This is in every bookmaker’s tool box,” said Baker wielding the bone folder, an object, sometimes made of bone, that looks like a giant Popsicle stick with a dull edge. The bone maker is used to create a smooth crease onto the folded paper. A cluster of KU students apprenticed in bookbinding walked around the room and hovered over tables, offering help whenever someone bungled a step in the bookcreation process. “I feel like one of my mother’s second-graders,” Billing said. “What I have discovered is that I’m really bad at cutting the paper.” She gestured to the jagged edges of her book pages. It was Cartwright who had prompted the couple to attend the workshop. Cartwright is a graduate student in KU’s English department. He is studying poetry but dabbles in other genres. ”I’m very interested in the art of the book,” Cartwright said. Ingrid Horton also participated in the workshop because of an interest in the history of book production. Horton has a master’s degree in library information science and a doctorate in French literature.

“I’m interested in the history of the book and book bindings and conservation,” she said. A seamstress, Horton preferred the sewn book over the other three. After the bookbinding workshop, the group shuffled down three flights of stairs to take a tour of the Jerry and Katherine Stannard Conservation Laboratory. The hybrid lab, in existence since 1999, houses many bookbinding machines — book presses, job backers, table sheers and backing hammers — some that appear to have been produced before the in-

dustrial revolution. “We have a tool called the guillotine,” Baker said during the tour. “It’s like the (device) from the French Revolution but with a lot more safety features.” Billings was happy she attended the event, seeing gift potential in the book-making methods she learned at the workshop. “It would be really fun to (use this skill) to make personalized, miniature anthologies of poetry,” Billing said. “You could totally use this to make someone a high-tech greeting card.”

FIRE REPORT • A Saturday evening fire destroyed a mobile home at 1908 E. 19th St. and killed a small dog, Lawrence-Douglas County Fire Medical officials said. No one was hurt in the fire, which began about 5 p.m. and was under control by 6 p.m. The single occupant of the home is staying with friends, and the Red Cross has been contacted to assist with recovery, division chief Doug Green said. Crews were still investigating the cause of the fire as of Saturday night. The Journal-World does not print accounts of all police reports filed.

Kids Alive

SHERRY SCHAUB, A RETIRED EXECUTIVE at Quaker Oats, has been chairman of Kids Alive International for more than two decades. With his wife, Carol, Sherry has traveled around the world helping the organization build homes and schools for at risk children in third world countries. The couple sponsor 11 children, whose pictures and countries are pinned into the map behind them.


reaches out to thousands of children. Those children are considered at-risk because of military conflicts, child labor, drug abuse, neglect or extreme poverty. “We are incredibly spoiled in this country. Even the poor in this country are rich compared to the poor in Third World countries. There is a difference between going to bed hungry in this country and starving to death when you live in the Sudan,” Carol said. The Schaubs have a goal to sponsor a child, which costs $35 a month, from each of the 14 countries in which Kids Alive is located.

KCC seeks funds to deal with fracking By Maria Sudekum Associated Press

KANSAS CITY, MO. — The Kansas Corporation Commission, the agency that regulates the oil and gas industry in the state, says it doesn’t have the necessary staff to inspect the growing number of oil and gas drilling sites involving horizontal fracturing, or fracking. “Current staffing resources cannot adequately and timely perform necessary field inspections with this increase level of activity,” the KCC said in its budget request for 2013. The KCC said that since

2009 when the first horizontal wells were drilled in Kansas, the state has seen a 300 percent increase in permits for such wells. The number of permits the state has issued for horizontally fracked wells has gone from eight in 2010, to 250 estimated for fiscal year 2012 and 500 estimated for fiscal year 2013, according to the KCC. While most of the recent fracking activity has been in south-central and western Kansas, the KCC also said the drilling has been moving northward and includes counties “as far north as McPherson County.”

The agency also raised concerns about being able to adequately inspect waste water generated by fracking, which has developed considerably and grown in popularity around the country in the last decade. The method involves pumping water, sand and chemicals into the well to open cracks and help oil and gas flow to the surface. Horizontal fracking has also drawn the attention of environmental groups that question whether the method contaminates groundwater. Oil and gas companies that use fracking have said the method is safe.

Cain backs Gingrich for GOP nomination Michael Macor/San Francisco Chronicle/AP Photo

By Philip Elliott Associated Press

WEST PALM BEACH, FLA. — Former presidential hopeful Herman Cain threw his support behind Newt Gingrich on Saturday night, providing the former House speaker with a late boost just days before Florida’s primary. Cain, a tea party favorite, endorsed his fellow Georgian at a GOP fundraiser Saturday calling him “a patriot.” “Speaker Gingrich is not afraid of bold ideas,” Cain said. The former pizza executive, who left the race before the first nominating contests after facing accusations of unwanted sexual advances, suggested the two have both undergone intense scrutiny. “I know Cain that Speaker Gingrich is running for president, and going through this sausage grinder,” Cain said. “I know what Gingrich this sausage grinder is all about.” Cain is set to campaign with Gingrich on Monday in an 11th hour push for support. Gingrich is in a fierce fight for Tuesday’s Florida’s GOP primary with Mitt Romney. Gingrich on Saturday night said that, like Cain, he is running a campaign based on big ideas and bold solutions. The decision was not unexpected, but the announcement comes at a make-orbreak moment. “I had it in my heart and mind a long time ago,” Cain said. The timing is similar to a Saturday night surprise four years ago, when then-Florida Gov. Charlie Crist endorsed John McCain’s presidential bid. Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry also endorsed Gingrich when he bowed out of the race in South Carolina. Since exiting the race in December, Cain appeared at a rally in South Carolina with late-night comedian Stephen Colbert. Cain, the charismatic former head of Godfather’s Pizza, briefly led in the polls in the fall. He became known for his signature 9-9-9 tax overhaul plan that would have scrapped the current tax code and replaced it with a 9 percent tax on individual income and corporate taxes as well as a new 9 percent national sales tax.

OAKLAND POLICE BLOCK OFF 10TH STREET near Laney College to stop protesters with Occupy Oakland as they march through the streets Saturday in downtown Oakland, Calif. With plans to take over a vacant building, Occupy Oakland spokesman Leo Ritz-Barr said the action “signals a new direction for the Occupy movement: putting vacant buildings at the service of the community.”

Oakland police arrest over 100 protesters OAKLAND, CALIF. (AP) — Police were in the process of arresting about 100 Occupy protesters for failing to disperse Saturday night, hours after officers used tear gas on a rowdy group of demonstrators who threw rocks and flares at them and tore down fences. Police Sgt. Christopher Bolton said the arrests came after protesters marched through downtown Oakland a little before 8 p.m. Saturday, with some of them entering a YMCA building. Meanwhile, about 100 police officers surrounded City Hall while others were swept the inside of the building to see if any protesters broke in. More help from other police agencies was also on the way, with busloads of Alameda County sheriff’s deputies arriving in the downtown area late Saturday. The nighttime arrests came after 19 people were taken into custody in Occupy Oakland protests hours earlier. Police used tear gas and “flash” grenades on the group Saturday afternoon after some demonstrators threw rocks and other objects at them. Police said three officers were hurt, but they released no details. Police said the group assembled at a downtown plaza Saturday morning, with demonstrators threatening to

take over the vacant Henry Kaiser Convention Center. The group then marched through the streets, disrupting traffic. The crowd grew as the day wore on, with afternoon estimates ranging from about 1,000 to 2,000 people. The protesters walked to the vacant convention center, where some started tearing down perimeter fencing and “destroying construction equipment” shortly before 3 p.m., police said. Police said they issued a dispersal order and used smoke and tear gas after some protesters pelted them with bottles, rocks, burning flares and other objects. Most of the arrests were made when protesters ignored orders to leave and assaulted officers, police said. By 4 p.m., the bulk of the crowd had left the convention center and headed back downtown. The demonstration comes after Occupy protesters said earlier this week that they planned to move into a vacant building and turn it into a social center and political hub. They also threatened to try to shut down the port, occupy the airport and take over City Hall. In a statement Friday, Oakland City Administrator Deanna Santana said the city would not be “bullied by threats of violence or illegal activity.”

Official: Yemen president in U.S. for treatment NEW YORK (AP) — The embattled president of Yemen arrived Saturday in the United States for medical treatment for burns he suffered during an assassination attempt in June. President Ali Abdullah Saleh arrived at an unspecified location in the United States, according to the country’s foreign press office. His journey had taken him from Oman, through London. The one-line Yemeni statement said Saleh was in the U.S. for a “short-term private medical visit.” His staff has said he is in the United States to be treated for injuries suffered during the assassination attempt. He was burned over much of his body and had shards of wood embedded into his chest by the explosion that ripped through his palace

mosque as he prayed. After months of unrest, Saleh agreed in November to end his 33-yearrule of the

Saleh Arabian state. His trip to the U.S. comes as Yemen, a key counterterrorism partner, prepares for an election Feb. 21 to select his successor. Human Rights Watch, which says it has documented the deaths of hundreds of anti-government protesters in confrontations with Saleh’s security forces, was outraged by the Yemeni president’s travel to the U.S. for medical treatment.

Amtrak delay Plans to provide an Amtrak connection from Kansas to Texas shouldn’t be delayed for long.


he Kansas Department of Transportation’s decision to put planning for expanded passenger rail service on hold may be reasonable from a financial standpoint, but it still is disappointing to communities, like Lawrence, that would benefit from a new Amtrak route that would provide rail connections from Kansas to Oklahoma City and Fort Worth. The plan being studied would extend Amtrak’s Heartland Flyer, which runs between Fort Worth and Oklahoma City, to the Southwest Chief, which runs from Chicago to Los Angeles and cuts across Kansas with stops at Lawrence, Topeka, Newton, Hutchinson, Dodge City and Garden City. The idea is to extend the Heartland Flyer route from Oklahoma City to either Newton or Kansas City to provide a connection to the south. Dennis Slimmer, KDOT’s chief of planning, told the Kansas Senate Transportation Committee last week that the department wouldn’t do further review or engineering work on the project until the Legislature identifies funding for the project and service. Infrastructure improvements to make the connection to Newton would cost about $87.5 million along with an annual operating subsidy of $4.4 million, which would be shared by the participating states. The connection to Kansas City would cost substantially more: $245.5 million for infrastructure and $10 million in annual subsidies. Officials have indicated that a rail extension to Newton would probably attract about 200,000 passengers per year, while one to Kansas City would have 270,000. Those numbers seem to indicate that the less-expensive plans to connect with Newton will provide more bang for the buck. Either plan would be a big asset for Lawrence and the volunteer group that has worked so hard to update the local Amtrak depot. The costs are certainly significant, and it probably makes sense not to spend additional money to plan for a route until more funds are identified to implement the plan. However, it would be too bad to see this plan shelved for long. Rail transportation once was a staple for American travelers, and with gasoline prices remaining high and air travel becoming more expensive and less convenient, it seems likely that rail travel could have a rebirth across the country. One key will be for destination cities to provide convenient transportation links for passengers arriving and departing by rail. It may be reasonable for Kansas to put this project on the back burner for now, but we hope it won’t be long before the rail extension project gets back on track.


Obama rejects patience of politics WASHINGTON — War, said James Madison, is “the true nurse of executive aggrandizement.” Randolph Bourne, the radical essayist killed by the influenza unleashed by World War I, warned, “War is the health of the state.” Hence Barack Obama’s State of the Union hymn: Onward civilian soldiers, marching as to war. Obama, an unfettered executive wielding a swollen state, began and ended his address by celebrating the armed forces. They are not “consumed with personal ambition,” they “work together” and “focus on the mission at hand” and do not “obsess over their differences.” Americans should emulate troops “marching into battle,” who “rise or fall as one unit.” Well. The armed services’ ethos, although noble, is not a template for civilian society, unless the aspiration is to extinguish politics. People marching in serried ranks, fused into a solid mass by the heat of martial ardor, proceeding in lockstep, shoulder to shoulder, obedient to orders from a commanding officer — this is a recurring dream of progressives eager to dispense with tiresome persuasion and untidy dissension in a free, tumultuous society. Progressive presidents use martial language as a way of encouraging Americans to confuse civilian politics with military exertions, thereby circumventing an impediment to progressive aspirations — the Constitution, and the patience it demands. As a young professor, Woodrow Wil-

son had lamented that America’s political parties “are like armies without officers.” The most theoretically inclined of progressive politicians, Wilson was the first president to criticize America’s founding. This he did thoroughly, rejecting the Madisonian system of checks and balances — the separation of powers, a crucial component of limited government — because it makes a government that can not be wielded efficiently by a strong executive. Franklin Roosevelt agreed. He complained about “the threehorse team of the American system:” “If one horse lies down in the traces or plunges off in another direction, the field will not be plowed.” And progressive plowing takes precedence over constitutional equipoise among the three branches of govern-

ment. Hence FDR’s attempt to break the Supreme Court to his will by enlarging it. In his first inaugural address, FDR demanded “broad executive power to wage a war against the emergency, as great as the power that would be given to me if we were in fact invaded by a foreign foe.” He said Americans must “move as a trained and loyal army” with “a unity of duty hitherto evoked only in time of armed strife.” The next day, addressing the American Legion, Roosevelt said it was “a mistake to assume that the virtues of war differ essentially from the virtues of peace.” In such a time, dissent is disloyalty. Yearnings for a command society were common and respectable then. Commonweal, a magazine for liberal Catholics, said Roosevelt should have “the powers of a virtual dictatorship to reorganize the government.” Walter Lippmann, then America’s preeminent columnist, said: “A mild species of dictatorship will help us over the roughest spots in the road ahead.” The New York Daily News, then the nation’s largestcirculation newspaper, cheerfully editorialized: “A lot of us have been asking for a dictator. Now we have one. ... It is Roosevelt. ... Dictatorship in crises was ancient Rome’s best era.” The New York Herald Tribune titled an editorial “For Dictatorship if Necessary.” Obama, aspiring to command civilian life, has said that in reforming health care, he would have preferred an “elegant, aca-

demically approved” plan without “legislative fingerprints on it” but “unfortunately” he had to conduct “negotiations with a lot of different people.” His campaign mantra “We can’t wait!” expresses progressivism’s impatience with our constitutional system of concurrent majorities. To enact and execute federal laws under Madison’s institutional architecture requires three, and sometimes more, such majorities. There must be majorities in the House and Senate, each body having distinctive constituencies and electoral rhythms. The law must be affirmed by the president, who has a distinctive electoral base and election schedule. Supermajorities in both houses of Congress are required to override presidential vetoes. And a Supreme Court majority is required to sustain laws against constitutional challenges. “We can’t wait!” exclaims Obama, who makes recess appointments when the Senate is not in recess, multiplies “czars” to further nullify the Senate’s constitutional prerogative to advise and consent, and creates agencies (e.g., Obamacare’s Independent Payment Advisory Board and Dodd-Frank’s Consumer Financial Protection Bureau) untethered from legislative accountability. Like other progressive presidents fond of military metaphors, he rejects the patience of politics required by the Constitution he has sworn to uphold.


Selected verses



From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Jan. 29, 1912: “Social activities at the University of Kansas are lagging. The students are YEARS ‘bugging’ for quizzes. The thinning of AGO the ranks by the stay-at-homes was IN 1912 easily seen by the small crowd at the basketball game and the scarcity of dancers at the parties. Last night the usual crowd at the parties down town was not seen. [Students] at one of the dances seemed to have more than their share of melancholy. Minds never rest. The thought of coming quizzes — Oh, what a thought! For six days the damper on the life of otherwise lively students will shut off all roads of enjoyment. Twenty-four hours is not long enough these days. How can the work of nine weeks be studied in one day? Can’t.” “Frankie Osborn, the boy who was injured in a coasting accident a few days ago, was taken to a hospital in Kansas City for an operation. His condition is very serious.” — Compiled by Sarah St. John

U.S. must talk, listen about guns In a democracy, nothing is supposed to matter more than the will of the people. So it was painful to watch last week as the will of the people was overturned and one of Arizona’s duly elected representatives was forced from office. It wasn’t a recall vote or scandal that did it. No, the people’s will was overturned by a gun. After a year of upbeat bulletins and proclamations of her miracle recovery, the decision by Rep. Gabrielle Giffords to leave Congress comes as a bit of a blow. In a video she explains that she needs to concentrate full time on her rehab. Giffords speaks clearly, but with a sometimes odd cadence, as if picking her way through an unfamiliar language — evidence of the brain injury she sustained when she was shot in the head last year at a constituents event in Tucson. Twelve other people were wounded, six killed. This episode joins a long list of elections overturned and social movements derailed by men with guns, as in the shootings of Abraham Lincoln, James Garfield, William McKinley, Huey Long, Malcolm X, Medgar Evers, the Kennedy brothers, George Wallace, George Moscone, Harvey Milk, Martin Luther King, Jr. Somehow, people who should never have guns never have trouble getting them. John Kennedy’s assassin, a disaffected former Marine who had once defected to the Soviet Union, bought his by mail order. King’s assassin, a wanted fugitive, bought his over the counter.

Leonard Pitts Jr.

Meantime, our unwillingness to get serious about an epidemic of gun violence brings us the equivalent of 11 Columbine massacres every week — three 9/11s every year.”

Jared Loughner, the man now in jail for the Tucson massacre, was able legally to obtain a gun despite the fact that he was a mentally deranged man who had been rejected by the U.S. Army and kicked out of a community college. Which suggests that, while Loughner may be unbalanced, American gun laws are downright insane. And they will likely stay insane, so long as our politics remain a hatefully polarized affair where the two “sides” glower at one another like boxers in their respective corners and “compromise” is a dirty word. After all, the solution here is not rocket science. We need meaningful background checks on all gun pur-

chases — no loopholes. A mentally unstable man should not have legal access to a gun, period. We need to ban fully automatic weapons from private use. The hunter who needs a gun that fires hundreds of rounds a minute isn’t much of a hunter. We need to encourage gun safety classes so that poorly secured firearms stop ending up in the hands of little children. At the very least, we need to have a serious national dialogue about these and other possible solutions. But we won’t. Too many on the political left still seem to harbor a fantasy of getting rid of all guns and refuse to distinguish between responsible gun owners and those criminals or deranged people who have no business with firearms. Too many on the political right still harbor the paranoid delusion that any talk of gun control is code for confiscation by jackbooted thugs riding black helicopters. So nobody talks. Nobody listens. Meantime, our unwillingness to get serious about an epidemic of gun violence brings us the equivalent of 11 Columbine massacres every week — three 9/11s every year. Every once in awhile, as now, it even overturns an election. The carnage goes on, and on. And sadly, that, too, reflects the people’s will. — Leonard Pitts Jr., winner of the 2004 Pulitzer Prize for commentary, is a columnist for the Miami Herald.

To the editor: Recently, an antiquated, hateful and unconstitutional law regarding homosexuality was inexplicably left on the books during a purge of old laws here in Kansas. While many have decried this omission as homophobic and a disgrace, others have quoted scripture to justify a continued assault on non-heterosexuals. While I deeply respect anyone’s personal or religious views, I feel compelled to point out that there are many verses in the Bible that fundamentalists conveniently ignore, which to me indicates they selectively pick verses to justify their bigotry against gays and lesbians. Such as: “Women should be silent in the churches, for they are not permitted to speak, but should be submissive, as the law also says.” (1 Corinthians 14:34) “For whatsoever man he be that hath a blemish, he shall not approach: a blind man, or a lame, or he that hath a flat nose, or anything superfluous.” (Leviticus 21:18) So, if you’re handicapped or have acne, you can’t go into church. “And ye shall overthrow their altars, and break their pillars, and burn their groves with fire; and ye shall hew down the graven images of their gods, and destroy the names of them out of that place.” (Deuteronomy 12:3) So go and burn down every synagogue, mosque or other building that isn’t a Christian church. It’s OK. God said to do it. I can “cut and paste” intolerant and hateful passages all day, but you get the idea. If you’re going to quote scripture to condemn people, you had better quote them ALL and condemn everyone equally. Steve Craven, Lawrence

KANSAS UNIVERSITY FORWARD THOMAS ROBINSON LOOKS UP AT THE SCOREBOARD before a rowdy backdrop of Iowa State students late in the second half. KU suffered its first Big 12 loss of the season, a 72-64 setback Saturday at Ames, Iowa.

Cyclone fans swamp floor to celebrate win Gary Bedore

AMES, IOWA — Hundreds of Iowa State students raced onto the court, swaying and singing the song “Sweet Caroline” before finally heading home after the unranked Cyclones’ 72-64 victory over No. 5 Kansas on Saturday afternoon at Hilton Coliseum. There certainly was a lot for ISU (15-6, 5-3) to celebrate. Such as ... # Snapping a 13-game losing streak vs. KU, which fell to 17-4 overall and 7-1 in the conference. # Beating KU for the first time in Ames in eight seasons.

Griner, Bears rout KU women

AMES, IOWA — Illinois and Indiana combined for 153 points in a Big Ten game just weeks ago, and the 10 starters scored every one of those points. TV timeouts every four minutes make a bench less crucial than it once was, and with even longer breaks in the NCAA Tournament, the value of reserves can be overrated. Still, it sure is nice to have a quality bench when the need arises. With personal fouls mounting and starters struggling to score in Hilton Coliseum, Kansas University’s basketball team needed a bailout from the guys who don’t get to hear their names an-

FSHS girls hang on, win Classic crown By Benton Smith

J-W Staff and Wire Reports

WACO, TEXAS — Brittney Griner has Baylor off to the best start in school history. On both the offensive and defensive ends, Griner has been making a huge impact all season long. The 6-foot-8 phenom scored 28 points and had five blocks, moving into second place on the NCAA career list, to help No. 1 Baylor’s 74-46 rout of Kansas University on Saturday night. Griner has been the centerpiece of the Lady Bears’ stellar defense that held the Jayhawks to just 29 percent shooting. “I don’t know how many games it is now that we’ve held our opponent field goal percentage pretty darn low,” Baylor coach Kim Mulkey said. “I just think right now, we’re playing well. And I think it’s very obvious on the defensive end of the floor what we’re doing.”

FREE STATE’S KENNEDY KIRKPATRICK, LEFT, CHELSEA CASADY, CENTER, and Abbey Casady show off the championship trophy after the title game of the Firebird Winter Classic. FSHS beat Wichita Bishop Carroll, 54-50, on Saturday at Free State.

The ending might not have been perfect, but it’s hard to argue with a championship. Free State High’s girls basketball team didn’t let a few selfinflicted wounds do it in against Wichita Bishop Carroll on Saturday afternoon and held on for a 54-50 victory in the Firebird Winter Classic title game. Up 10 points with less than four minutes to go in the fourth quarter, A’Liyah Rogers’ cut from the weak side for a lay-in with 3:45 left proved to be Free State’s final basket of the game. The Golden Eagles (10-3) sliced the FSHS lead to one with 14 seconds left, but Firebirds senior Lynn Robinson hit one of two free-throw tries a second later and — after a Carroll turnover with two seconds remaining — junior Kennedy Kirkpatrick iced

the game by calmly burying a pair of free throws. As the Golden Eagles, the tournament’s top seed and the No. 4-ranked team in Class 5A, chipped away at Free State’s lead, Firebirds coach Bryan Duncan said the challenge became backing off on offense after playing nearly 30 minutes of aggressive basketball. “It just turned into kind of a frantic style,” he said. “And it’s really hard to go from a frantic style to a real controlled pace in the last three minutes.” On top of that, late free-throw woes nearly cost FSHS (9-3). The home team missed five straight at the foul line in the final five minutes before Robinson and Kirkpatrick helped keep Carroll out of reach. Duncan said the Firebirds have grown accustomed to seeing their starters make free throws, and Please see FSHS GIRLS, page 10B

Pro Bowl to feature plenty of new faces HONOLULU (AP) — Tony Gonzalez, Ray Lewis and Champ Bailey know what to expect. The new faces at the Pro Bowl aren’t so sure and are curious how intense they should play in today’s allstar game. “I’ve never been in a Pro Bowl before, so I don’t know what the tempo is going to be like,� San Diego Chargers running back Ryan Mathews said. “So it’s going to be fun to get out there and see how it goes.� Six rookies are among the 36 first-timers, including quarterbacks Cam Newton of the Carolina Panthers and Andy Dalton of the Cincinnati Bengals, who are replacing Super Bowl quarterbacks Eli Manning and Tom Brady. Their selection makes this Pro

PRO BOWL Who: AFC vs. NFC When: 6 p.m. today Where: Honolulu TV: Knology channels 14, 214 Bowl the first that will feature two rookie quarterbacks. “This is like the height of being an NFL player — being an all-star and having the opportunity to wear the red, white and blue — just having that jersey,� said Newton, the No. 1 overall pick in last year’s draft. “Only a few people can say, ‘I’ve made it to the NFL,’ but fewer number can say they’ve made it here.�

In a game known to highlight offense, the NFC will feature two of the game’s most prolific quarterbacks. Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers will start for the NFC and will be backed up by New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees. Rodgers passed for 4,463 yards with 45 touchdowns and just six interceptions. His quarterback rating of 122.5 set an NFL record. Brees, meanwhile, threw for 5,476 yards, breaking Dan Marino’s single-season record. The NFC also features Philadelphia running back LeSean McCoy and receivers Larry Fitzgerald (Arizona), Steve Smith (Carolina) and Greg Jennings (Green Bay). Houston defensive end Anto-

nio Smith acknowledges the NFC has a lot of great players on offense, but isn’t too worried. “We got so many weapons. We got so many Super Bowls. We got Hall of Fame players on our team. So I think we’ll be all right,� Smith said. Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will start for the AFC, with San Diego’s Philip Rivers and Dalton backing him up. “I think any quarterback will tell you that we wish we were getting ready to play in a game a week from now, but it’s always an honor to come,� said Rivers, who this season joined Brees and Peyton Manning as the only quarterbacks to pass for 4,000 yards in four consecutive seasons.



Pro football becoming studio sport By Rick Gosselin The Dallas Morning News

Hockey is a much better sport to watch in person than on television — but football is better to watch on TV than live. And that should be a front-burner concern of NFL commissioner Roger Goodell. Television has made it too easy for fans to stay away from the stadium. The NFL is becoming a studio sport. Last weekend, for the first time since 1983, I was not on assignment in a stadium at a conference championship game. I was able to sit on the couch at home and watch the games in high definition on a jumbo, flat-screen television. It was the best seat I’ve had for a conference title game in 28 years. The casual fan is reaching that same conclusion. Why pay $50 to park, upwards of $5,000 for a personal seat license, $300 for a ticket, $12 for a burger, $8 for a beer and sit through countless television timeouts during the course of a game, then sit through another hour or so of traffic afterward? And do that for eight Sundays each fall? Invest a fraction of that money in a 70inch flat screen and you’ll have a better seat for football for years to come without the added expense of parking, admission and concessions. You can flip over to the Red Zone Channel on the NFL Network during lulls in the action and catch the scoring plays of all other games that day. The TV broadcast also keeps you informed of injuries during the game, something they don’t do inside the stadium. And you can walk the dog at halftime. The NFL caters to television, and the fans who stay away from the stadium are benefiting. And they are staying away. The Cincinnati Bengals were a playoff team this season with some exciting young offensive players and a stout defense. Paul Brown Stadium has a seating capacity of 65,515, but the Bengals drew fewer than 50,000 for five of their eight games. Cincinnati did sell out the season finale against Baltimore with a playoff berth on the line but only because club ownership offered season-ticket holders a special deal — two tickets for the price of one. The Bengals have already announced they are slashing ticket prices for 2012 in an attempt to get fannies back in the seats. The Miami Dolphins’ stadium has a capacity of 75,200. Half of their games this season drew fewer than 60,000. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers play in one of the NFL’s newest and best stadiums. Their biggest home crowd this season was 76,981 — but that particular “home� game was played in London. The seven home games in Tampa drew an average attendance of 56,614. Buffalo drew only 45,112 for its home finale — one of three sub-60,000 crowds this season in its 73,000-seat stadium. Once upon a time, the NFL would throw open the doors on Sunday afternoons and fans would rush in. Sellouts were the norm, television blackouts the exception. But not anymore. Total seating capacity for the league — all cities, all games — is a shade over 18 million. Only 16.21 million seats were occupied for the 256 games of the 2011 season. That left 1.82 million seats unoccupied last fall. That’s income lost, in most cases, to television. By the way, I’m headed to the Super Bowl next week. For all those who are going to call me and ask about tickets — trust me, you have a better seat at home in front of your big screen.

TIGER WOODS PLAYS A BALL IN THE SAND on the 17th hole during the third round of the Abu Dhabi Championship on Saturday in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. Woods was tied for the lead after three rounds.


Woods starting to look like Tiger of old ABU DHABI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES — Tiger Woods put himself in position to win his second straight tournament Saturday, and this one would leave little doubt about which direction his game is going. He finally won two months ago against an 18-man field in California. On Saturday, against the strongest field golf has seen in at least three months, Woods shot a 6-under 66 for a share of the lead with Robert Rock going into the final round of the Abu Dhabi Golf Championship. The topic suddenly shifts from the state of his swing and his health. Woods has a 55-8 record worldwide when he has at least a share of the lead going into the final round, and a win would be the first time since August 2009 that he has won consecutive starts. More than being atop the leaderboard, it’s how Woods got there. “It’s fun when I’m able to control the golf ball like I did,� Woods said. There wasn’t a lot of fist-pumping from Woods, who traded drama for consistency, racking up six birdies in a bogey-free round. It was a memorable performance by the American, mostly for his ability to hit fairways, tame the par 5s and sink clutch putts — including a six-footer for birdie on the final hole. “It just seemed like I didn’t do a lot of things right but I didn’t do a lot of things wrong today, it was just very consistent,� Woods said. “You know, made a couple putts here and there. ... I stayed away from trouble and tried to keep the ball toward the fat side of some of these pins, and I think I did a pretty good job.� Woods finished at 11-under 205. Rock, at No. 117 in the world, birdied his final two holes to join Woods in the last group along with Peter Hanson, who had a 64 and was two shots behind. Also two back at 9-under 207 was Rory McIlroy, who played with Woods for the third straight day and had a 68, keeping the No. 3 player very much in the picture.


Stanley leads Farmers by 5 SAN DIEGO — Kyle Stanley overpowered Torrey Pines to open a five-shot lead in the Farmers Insurance Open. About the only regret for Stanley was missing a four-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole that would have broken the 54-hole tournament record set by Tiger Woods in 1998, before Rees Jones beefed up the South Course for the 2008 U.S. Open. Stanley still managed a 4-under 68, a spot alongside Woods in the record book at 18-under 198 and great position for his first victory. John Huh, a 21-year-old rookie who spent three years on the Korean Tour, and John Rollins each had 68 and were at 13-under 203. Former Kansas University golfer Gary Woodland fired a 74 for a 216 total.

Grand Slam tournaments, had her serve broken in the opening game of the match and trailed 2-0 after a nervous start before winning 12 of the next 13 games to take the match away from Sharapova, a three-time major winner and the 2008 Australian champion. She became only the third woman to earn the No. 1 spot after winning her first Grand Slam title.


North takes Senior Bowl MOBILE, ALA. — Michigan State’s Kirk Cousins and Wisconsin’s Russell Wilson threw touchdown passes to lead the North to a 23-13 victory over the South in the Senior Bowl on Saturday. Purdue kicker Carson Wiggs put it away with his third short field goal, a 28-yarder with 4:11 left in the showcase for senior NFL prospects. Boise State’s Kellen Moore led that clinching 13-play drive that consumed 8:36 with the help of a running clock. It snuffed out a spark provided by South quarterback Nick Foles of Arizona, who started his career with Cousins at Michigan State. Foles had gotten the South into the end zone by firing a 20-yard touchdown pass to Arizona teammate Juron Criner with 12:55 left in the game. It was an up-and-down day for a crew of quarterbacks with sparkling college credentials, with a combined five interceptions.


Niners LB charged with DUI MIAMI — San Francisco 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith has been charged with driving under the influence in Miami Beach. Miami-Dade County jail records show Smith was booked Saturday morning and held on $1,000 bond.

Bears tap Emery as GM LAKE FOREST, ILL. — The Chicago Bears have hired Kansas City Chiefs director of college scouting Phil Emery as their new general manager. Emery was an area scout for the Bears from 1998-2004. He replaces Jerry Angelo.


Wagner wins U.S. title

SAN JOSE, CALIF. — Ashley Wagner won her first title at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships on Saturday night, salvaging what was an otherwise dismal night of skating with a signature performance. Third after the short program, Wagner needed a dazzling show and some help from others. She did her part, scoring 187.02 TENNIS points, and then watched as two-time champ Alissa Czisny and Agnes Zawadzki melted Azarenka wins in Australia down after her. When Wagner saw the final MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA — Victoria Azaresults, tears filled her eyes and she rested a renka beat Maria Sharapova, 6-3, 6-0, on hand on the shoulder of coach John Nicks. Saturday night to win the Australian Open and Czisny managed to stay second, finishing take over the women’s No. 1 ranking. seven points behind Wagner. Zawadzki was Azarenka, playing in her first final in 25 third.

Baylor was up 37-17 at the half after holding Kansas scoreless for the final 6:45 of the period. The Lady Bears then opened the second half on a 10-4 run and never let Kansas get closer than 21 the rest of the way. “You worry about family night and not being focused,” Mulkey said. “But I thought we handled everything great today. It was an atmosphere today where our kids got to see our men play at noon, which is unusual, and it takes you out of your routine. But we handled that.” Baylor men’s team beat Texas 76-71 earlier in the day. Midway through the second half, Sutherland had a short jumper in the lane and Harper followed with a three for Kansas’ biggest scoring run of the game. Baylor answered with jumpers by Griner and Shanay Washington that put the Bears up 61-36 with 8:44 to play. Kansas was coming off a 62-43 win over No. 21 Texas Tech on Wednesday, and had previously beaten thenNo. 23 Texas by five points on Jan. 4. Baylor won at Oklahoma on Thursday night, beating the Sooners 89-58, and taking a bus back to Waco right after the game. Mulkey had been worried about playing again two days later. “It was a game that you’re concerned about the quick turnaround, having played at OU on the road,” she said. “We were a little sluggish. Maybe not to where people could see it, but just knowing how quick we can do things. And I thought we were sluggish. But I thought we did enough early in the game to have spurts where the crowd got into it, and we extended the lead.”

Veritas 39, Midland Adventist 13 EUDORA — Ellen Phillips had 13 points and 10 rebounds, and Kayli Farley added 12 points as Veritas smothered Midland Adventist. “It turns out, we lost one of our starting guards to a torn ACL a couple of weeks ago, and they lost one of their starting guards to a torn ACL,” Veritas coach Kevin Shelton said. The Eagles held Midland to single-digit scoring in each quarter, including a scoreless third. “Our man defense was good,” Shelton said. “Kristen Finger just overwhelmed their point guard, and Ellen and Kayli did a good job shooting the ball for us.” Veritas (4-12) was playing its third game without Madison Bennett, a junior guard who is out for the season because of a torn ACL. “We’re trying to learn how to play without her. It’s a process,” Shelton said. “This was a good win for us. We needed it.” The Eagles will travel Tuesday to Topeka Heritage.

Griner passed Michigan State’s Alyssa DeHaan midway through the first half to move into second place on the blocks list. The junior center has 506 blocks in her career and now only trails Saint Mary’s star Louella Tomlinson, who had 663. “Griner’s tough to guard. We talked about that,” Kansas coach Bonnie Henrickson said. “As good as she is on the offensive end, she certainly impacts the game as much or more on the defensive end.” Kimetria Hayden added 10 points and Destiny Williams had 11 rebounds for Baylor (21-0, 8-0 Big 12), which is one of two unbeatens left. Wisconsin-Green Bay improved to 19-0 on Saturday by routing Valparaiso. Carolyn Davis scored 12 and Angel Goodrich and CeCe Harper had 10 points each for Kansas (16-4, 5-3).

She had 34 in the Jayhawks win over Texas Tech on Wednesday night. “We kind of stubbed our toe there and didn’t take care of the ball in some plays that had everything to do with us — not that it wasn’t pressure by them, (but) we made bad decisions,” Henrickson said. Griner got the Lady Bears going early with two twohanded blocks. Those came during a 14-4 run to open the game and led to three-pointers. “It was just the first five minutes,” Hayden said. “We just play hard. We just had a

KANSAS UNIVERSITY RUNNER ALEX HERMES WORKS AGAINST THE CLOCK in the prelims of the 200-meter dash Friday at the Jayhawk Classic in Anschutz Pavilion.

Fourteen Kansas University track and field athletes won individual events on Friday at the Jayhawk Classic in Anschutz Pavilion. In a meet that featured both collegiate and professional athletes, Kansas runner Diamond Dixon won the 400-meter dash with an Anschutz-facility-record and NCAA season-best time of 53.05 seconds. KU triplejumper Andrea Geubelle also set an NCAA-best mark with 13.20 meters, but she finished in third place behind two professionals, both Olympic hopefuls.

Rebeka Stowe (3,000 meters) and Alena Krechyk (weight throw) also broke Anschutz Pavilion records. “It was a really good meet for us today,” KU coach Stanley Redwine said. “We had several winners, facility records and top performances in the nation so things are really shaping up. We, as coaches, thought this would be a really good meet. We had better competition, and our athletes stepped up.” The Jayhawks will compete against some of the top teams in the country on Friday and Saturday at the New Balance Collegiate Invitational in New York City.

ISU’s White can, does hit free throws By Jesse Newell

AMES, IOWA — Following a made free throw with 8:04 to go, Iowa State forward Royce White walked all the way up to the rim and inspected the underside of the net. After ISU’s 72-64 victory over Kansas University on Saturday, he was asked why he did it. “That was for (KU forward) Thomas (Robinson),” White said with a smile, “because he said I was going to miss them, and I made one. That was for him.” Maybe all the 51-percent free-throw shooter needed was a little extra motivation. White hit three of his final four free-throw attempts, ending his day 6-for-11 from the line. Though it might not sound like much, it was a huge improvement for the sophomore, whose 1-for-7 freethrow shooting Tuesday at Texas was so bad he earned a spot on ESPN’s Not Top 10. “I woke up this morning,

when you’re on a bad streak,” White said. “It felt good (Saturday).” Following the game, ISU fans stormed the court for the first time in senior Scott Christopherson’s four years at the school. White said the Cyclones came into the contest believing it was “basically a mustwin.” “It definitely feels good to beat ’em,” White said, “knowing that we felt like we should have won the first time.” After turning it over 13 times in the first half, Hoiberg told his players in the locker room that if they cut those turnovers in half, they’d walk out of the building with a win. ISU had only six secondhalf giveaways. The Cyclones also scored on each of their eight possessions in the final five minutes. “Our offense down the stretch — that was as poised as we’ve played,” Hoiberg said. The coach also made sure to praise his team’s defense.

He said the Cyclones did a better job of getting the ball out of KU guard Tyshawn Taylor’s hands while also covering the pick-and-roll more consistently. It was ISU’s first home victory against KU since Jan. 31, 2004. “There’s always something extra-special about the Kansas game. There’s always something a little extra in the air,” said Hoiberg, who played for ISU from 1991-95. “They come in here always in the top 10. I have so much respect for that program. I have so much respect for Bill Self and his coaching staff. They do as good a job as anybody.” Hoiberg said “Hilton Magic” was in full effect Saturday. “To be honest with you, I think the two best buildings in our league to play in are Allen Fieldhouse and Hilton Coliseum. I’m absolutely passionate about that,” Hoiberg said. “They made it tough for us to win down there, and I think we made it tough for them to win down here.”

No Jayhawks or Cyclones were hurt during the courtstorming that took place at the final buzzer. ISU officials, however, indicated that ref Darron George hurt his wrist trying to escape the mass of bodies en route to the locker room. He iced the wrist, but did not head to the hospital for X-rays or treatment. “I kind of wanted to get in there, rushing in there and party with them,” ISU forward Royce White said after scoring 18 points and grabbing nine rebounds. “It was a good thing that they were excited. It was a good win for us.” White scored nine points in a critical 15-6 run that turned a 53-52 Cyclone deficit into a 67-59 lead at :59. “I think we did an aboveaverage job on him,” KU coach Bill Self said. “We guarded their team better the second half and did a bad job on him (in the second half, when he had 14 points). He’s good. Obviously Jeff and Thomas (Robinson) had problems with him the second half.” Self cited rebounding as a critical factor in KU’s first league loss. “I think they ‘outmanned’ us,” Self said. “When your guards combine for four rebounds and there were so many long misses ... I thought their guards did a great job. McGee (Tyrus, six rebounds) kept a lot of balls alive.” Withey had six boards and Robinson seven on a day KU

ISU also outrebounded KU by eight in the Jayhawks’ 82-73 home victory over the Cyclones on Jan. 14. “They are all, ‘man plays,’” Withey said of grabbing rebounds. The last time KU was outrebounded by 10 or more was by Oklahoma State (36-26) on Feb. 27, 2010. KU’s 23 boards were fewest since securing 23 at Kansas State last season. “They crashed the glass,” said Robinson, who scored 13 points off 5-of-11 shooting. “I’m just not playing like me. I am not taking my time. I am not playing.” Robinson missed a dunk try with 4:58 left, with KU down by just three points. He also misfired from the inside on KU’s opening two possessions. “That’s not how he’s been

playing. He labored today,” Self said of Robinson, adding that only Tyshawn Taylor had a good line statistically (16 points, 10 assists, two turnovers, 35 minutes). KU led by as many as six points (45-39) with 16:52 to play. However, Scott Christopherson (14 points, 9-of-10 from line) had four points in an 11-4 surge to put the Cyclones (who led 37-34 at half) right back on top. “We were up six and hadn’t played well,” Self said. “If you had told me before the game we’d be up six with 13, 14 minutes left, I’d say, ‘OK, I can live with that.’ Iowa State was so much better down the stretch. I don’t know if we played without poise ... I don’t think we responded great the final four minutes.” The Jayhawks dropped their first road game in a

ISU puts end to KU’s 10-game streak By Gary Bedore

ference opponent this season. ... KU had all five starters in double figures for just the second time this season. ... Tyshawn Taylor had 10 assists, most ever in a conference game. ... Taylor moved into sole possession of 30th place on KU’s all-time scoring list with 1,280 points. He broke a tie with Jerod Haase (1,264). ... Taylor’s 10 assists moved him into a tie for ninth place on KU’s all-time list with Kevin Pritchard (499). His two steals give him 144, moving him ahead of Ryan Robertson (143) for 20th on KU’s all-time list.

AMES, IOWA — Iowa State snapped Kansas University’s 10-game winning streak. KU had won seven straight on the road, which dates to last season. ... KU leads the alltime series vs. ISU, 171-59. Bill Self is 16-3 versus ISU, 15-3 at KU. ... KU used a 10-0 run late in the first half to take its first lead at 3:32. ...

Participating NABC member coaches wear sneakers one game a year to support the American Cancer Society and its vision of a world “with less cancer and more birthdays.” !

Not interested: Self was asked on Friday’s Jim Rome radio show about possibly coaching in the NBA someday. “I think there’s a part of

me that would say that could interest me at some point in time, but right now I’m having so much fun working with these guys. To be honest with you, there’s a lot of good jobs out there. There are not many as good as what I’ve got,” Self said. “Sometimes I think people get caught up in looking for something where the grass is greener when it is really not. This is a great gig. Maybe when they get tired of me here that may be something I consider doing. Even with that being said, there’s only 30 (NBA) jobs out there. What are the chances anybody’s going to want a college coach? I am certainly not thinking that or putting

my eggs in that basket. All I want to do is coach this team as hard as I can and get this team ready.” !

T-Rob love: ESPN’s Jay Bilas lists KU’s Thomas Robinson as his No. 3 big man in college basketball this season. His rankings are “based upon performance in college, and with a nod to pro potential.” Kentucky’s Anthony Davis is No. 1 and Ohio State’s Jared Sullinger No. 2. Of Robinson, Bilas wrote: “No big man has had a better season than Robinson. Clearly he is a high level athlete with an NBA body. And he has a tremendous motor that keeps revving at a high level

game after game. Robinson is the best defensive rebounder in college basketball, averaging nine defensive rebounds per game and more than 12 rebounds overall. He can run the floor, and he has the strength and lift to block shots around the rim. He is not a natural scorer but can step away and hit to 18 feet, and he can also put it on the floor and drive it some. Robinson is averaging more than 17 points per game on 54 percent shooting, and he gets to the free throw line six times per game but shoots only 64 percent from the line. His activity level is what makes him special, and he will help a team win without having to be the focal point.”

defensive player, Young had a rough day in Hilton, hitting just one of five shots and misfiring multiple mid-range jumpers. “I’ve got to knock that down,” Young said. “I shoot 100 of those a day, so there’s no excuse why I can’t make that shot.” He looks less than 100 percent comfortable on his new team after spending two seasons playing for Loyola Marymount. “I wouldn’t say 100 percent,” Young said. “It takes time, but I’m getting there.” Teahan has made six of 29 three-pointers in his past seven games. Wesley has more personal fouls (52) than rebounds (44) or points (34). Freshman Naadir Tharpe’s tendency toward the quick turnover has kept Self from including him in the rotation. On most days and nights, the bench will perform better than it did in the past three losses, but how much better?


a subconscious level, and the close calls tend to go in favor of the home team more often than the visitors. Fatigue and foul trouble make reserves needed more on the road, where they are less equipped to get the job done. All that is a long way of stating that Saturday could prove to be just the beginning of rough times on the most challenging road stretch of the season. It started with Ames and — with home games mixed in — continues with trips to Columbia, Waco and Manhattan. Asked the obvious question of whether he needs to get more from his bench, KU coach Bill Self gave the obvious answer. “Uh, I think that would be affirmative,” Self said. “We’re not getting much at all, and we’re playing guys too many minutes. We’re not getting much from our bench at all right now.” A better offensive than


game with a 20-11 run in the last eight minutes, 10-5 in the final 2:18. Bill Self distributed 29 minutes to his three chief reserves — guard Conner Teahan and forwards Kevin Young and Justin Wesley. In 29 minutes, they responded with five points, two rebounds, an assist and a turnover. They made two of 12 shots. In the loss to Davidson in Sprint Center in December, the bench logged 48 minutes and contributed six points and 10 rebounds on 2-of11 shooting. They had one assist and four turnovers in that one. Duke? Scoreless in 30 minutes, no rebounds, no assists. Detect a pattern anyone? It’s not that the starters are responsible for all the season’s big victories. Young sparked the Jayhawks to a huge nonconference win against Ohio State. The game before that, Teahan caught fire and played a huge part in a victory against a tough Long Beach State squad. Both of those games took place in Allen Fieldhouse, where the home crowd fueled the home team. Typically, in basketball, the better, more experienced players display the least slippage on the road, the reserves the most. The road also is where a strong bench is most important. Players get called for more fouls on the road than at home for a couple of reasons. One, fatigue sets in easier when the home crowd isn’t with them to pump them full of adrenaline. A tired basketball player doesn’t move his feet as well and doesn’t focus as well, two factors that lead to fouling. A second factor — or should it be first? — has to do with how referees call games. Everybody seeks approval, and even though officials try not to play favorites, they are human. Their innate desire to be liked kicks in, even if only on

No. 3 Syracuse 63, West Virginia 61 SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Brandon Triche had 18 points, including a pair of free throws that broke the final tie with 88 seconds left, and Syracuse beat West Virginia. After Triche’s free throws, the Mountaineers missed four straight shots, including an airball three by Darryl “Truck” Bryant and a miss on the follow by Deniz Kilicli. But when Kris Joseph snared the rebound and tried to dribble away, he fell out of bounds with 6.2 seconds left, giving West Virginia one last chance. Kevin Jones missed a three from the left corner at the buzzer.

OU gives Kruger victory at old stomping grounds The Associated Press

Oklahoma 63, No. 22 Kansas State 60 MANHATTAN — Every once in a while, Lon Kruger has a senior moment. The Oklahoma coach will be sitting in film study, or perhaps in practice, and draw on his experience playing and coaching at Kansas State to make a point. Only he’ll talk about his days in the Big 8, and his players will gently remind him that, no, it’s the Big 12 these days. Yes, Kruger is back in the conference he once called home. On Saturday night, he walked out of the building he once called home with a victory. Steven Pledger scored 30 points and the Sooners weathered a second-half charge by the Wildcats — and some tense moments down the stretch — for a confidence-building win. “Pales by comparison to what it means to the players,” Kruger said of his first game at Bramlage Coliseum since 1990, when he led the Wildcats in his final game before departing for the same job at Florida. “They’re not aware where I went to school.” Actually, Lon, they are. “This is where he rocked out on the court,” Pledger said, “so this is great.” The Sooners squandered a 10-point second-half advantage but still led 59-56 on a pair of free throws by Pledger with 1:07 left, setting up a tense final flurry by both teams. Will Spradling’s slicing layup got Kansas State within a point, and Jordan Henriquez corralled a loose ball on defense with just over 10 seconds left. But Sam Grooms managed to poke it loose before it could be cleared, and Romero Osby went to the foul line.

They made it a real physical game. We didn’t respond.” — Kansas State coach Frank Martin Osby hit two free throws to restore Oklahoma’s threepoint lead, and the Sooners fouled Henriquez on purpose with 5.2 seconds left. He made both fouls shots to get Kansas State within 61-60, but Grooms matched him with two free throws of his own. Kansas State had one final chance when Rodney McGruder got loose on the perimeter, but his three-pointer at the buzzer clanked off the rim, allowing the Sooners (137, 3-5 Big 12) to escape. “I had a clean look,” McGruder said. “Just came up short.” McGruder finished with 19 points and Angel Rodriguez had 10 for the Wildcats (155, 4-4), who had won three straight but saw a chance to gain ground in the Big 12 slip away. “They made it a real physical game. We didn’t respond,” said Kansas State coach Frank Martin, whose team was 3-for-19 from beyond the arc. Martin probably wished he had Kruger letting it fly from long range. The native of Silver Lake, Kan., was a star for the Wildcats in the 1970s, twice earning Big 8 player of the year honors. He later returned as an assistant coach and eventually the head coach, taking over after Jack Hartman retired and leading the Wildcats to four NCAA tournaments. “It meant a lot to me, playing for Coach, knowing that he was a big-time player,” Grooms said. “You want to win for him so he has a little bit of bragging rights.”

Roundup term absence of injured center Andrew Bogut, the Bucks found themselves without guard/forward Stephen Jackson on Saturday because of an NBA suspension.

The Associated Press

76ers 95, Pistons 74 PHILADELPHIA — Andre Iguodala recorded the eighth triple-double of his career with 10 points, 10 assists and 10 rebounds, and Philadelphia won its second-straight game. Iguodala, who turned 28 on Saturday, received a nice ovation from the crowd when he secured his tripledouble with a defensive rebound with 7:34 remaining. Lou Williams scored 17 points, Elton Brand added 14, and Jrue Holiday had 13 for the Sixers, who improved to 14-6 and 10-2 at home. They are 3-1 on this sevengame homestand, which gets markedly tougher next week with visits from the Orlando Magic on Monday, Chicago Bulls on Wednesday and Miami Heat on Friday. The Sixers have been a strong second-half team this season, and this game was no different. They came out of halftime with a quick 8-2 run — highlighted by threepointers from Iguodala and Jodie Meeks — and extended their lead to 50-33. Detroit never got closer than nine the rest of the game. The Pistons received a boost with the return of forward Tayshaun Prince, who had missed the previous two games tending to a family matter. Prince finished with just six points. The shorthanded Pistons were still without injured guards Will Bynum and Ben Gordon, as well as forward Charlie Villanueva.

The match-up between two teams tied for the fewest wins in the NBA came down to the final shot, but Matt Carroll’s three-point attempt at the buzzer fell short. McGee had a chance to seal the game with less than six seconds to go, but missed two foul shots. But that was about all McGee didn’t do right, as he shot 9-of-14 from the field. Like many others this season, McGee exposed Charlotte’s poor interior defense, using an effective hook shot in the lane.

Bulls, Heat ready for rematch MIAMI (AP) — A Sunday matinee match-up, with the top two teams in the Eastern Conference rekindling their playoff rivalry from a season ago. Derrick Rose says it’s just another game. LeBron James offers a similar sentiment. Odds are, the past two NBA MVPs aren’t being entirely truthful in their analysis. Rose and the Chicago Bulls visit James and the Miami Heat today, the first meeting this season between the teams with the East’s two best records to date. Chicago won all three regular-season games last season by a combined eight points, before the Heat captured the conference finals in five games and capped that series with a wild comeback on the Bulls’ floor. “The hype is going to be crazy for this game,” Rose

CHICAGO VS. MIAMI When: 2:30 p.m. today Where: Miami TV: Knology channels 9, 209 told reporters in Chicago on Friday night. “Just can’t buy into it.” James concurred after the Heat finished practice Saturday in Miami. “We hope the fans are excited about the game, but as far as the most-hyped game (of the season so far), I don’t think so,” James said. “We enjoy it. We’ve got those types of guys who love the big stage, if that’s what you want to call it. It’s going to be a good game. We’re looking forward to the challenge and I know they are as well.” Chicago will leave Miami today atop the East stand-

ings, no matter the outcome, up by either one or three games in the conference race — almost an ancillary point. Instead, today seems almost more about landing the first blow in what could be the start of as many as 11 meetings between the teams this season. The Heat surely recall losing the three nail-biters against Chicago a year ago, then getting run out of the United Center in Game 1 of the East finals. The Bulls surely recall that series-opening win was their last against the Heat last season, and how Miami rallied from 12 points down in the last three minutes of Game 5 to prevail and earn a spot in the NBA finals. “It’s the team that eliminated us last year,” Bulls center Joakim Noah — who famously called Miami “Hollywood as hell” after that playoff se-

ries — said Friday night in a video posted to the team’s website. “And everybody will be waiting for that game. It’s a game that as soon as that schedule came out, that’s definitely the game that you circle, that you come ready for.” Motivation will not be in short supply, on either side. Healthy bodies, on the Chicago side, may be a bit lacking. Rose, the reigning MVP, is playing through some nagging issues, including a sore left big toe. Guard Richard Hamilton has always been a strong defender against Miami’s Dwyane Wade, but sat out Friday with a bruised right thigh. And forward Luol Deng, who has averaged 18.7 points in his last 10 games against Miami (including playoffs), is saying he does not expect to play for at least another few days because of a torn left wrist ligament.

LHS girls bounce back with 53-24 victory By Benton Smith


in the heat of the moment the misses were perplexing. “It’s a total shock to your system when you see them miss one, and it feels like the world’s caving in — but it’s not,” the coach said with a grin. Duncan didn’t think his team fully lost its composure and said Kirkpatrick hit the two freebies FSHS “really needed” with just 1.4 seconds on the clock. Free State held just a onepoint lead after three quarters — 41-40 — and the opening minutes of the fourth proved to be the difference. Robinson got things started with a steal and a layup. Then Kirkpatrick went coast-tocoast for a layin of her own as the Firebirds extended their lead to five in less than a minute. Two minutes later, Kirkpatrick pulled up on the right wing and drilled a three-pointer. After Robinson hit one out of two at the foul line and Rogers scored the team’s final bucket, Free State was up 10. The final 16 minutes were a far cry from the first half, when the Golden Eagles’ two starting post players, Jordyn Miller and Jana Reichenberger, dominated in the paint. They scored 28 of Carroll’s 30 first-half points and got 14 of those at the free-throw

The Lions won in a rout, 53-24. it was huge for us,” the coach said. Equally important to the Lions’ success against Sumner (4-10) was the overall play of junior Krista Costa. She not only scored eight points, but also secured six rebounds, swiped five steals and passed out two assists. Coleman said Costa was great for LHS — “She was hustling all over the floor,” Coleman said. Wood, too, praised Costa’s energy and said she played that way in all three tournament games. Her approach, he added, enables her to quickly fill up the stat sheet. “She does the little things,” Wood said. “It may not be that she scores a lot of points, but she’s flying all over the court getting steals, creating assists. She’s so valuable to us on so many different levels. She finds a way to be productive.” Lawrence’s team defense couldn’t have been much better. The Lions held the Sabres to 9-for-35 shooting.

line as the Firebirds tried in vain to slow them down. Duncan said Free State had to force Miller and Reichenberger to do something else in the second half, so the Firebirds decided to speed up Carroll and take the bigs out of their comfort zone. It worked, too. While Miller finished with 23 points, only four came in the second half. Plus, the post players only shot six free throws after Free State changed things up. “We kind of went to that helter-skelter defense,” Duncan said, “and started trapping and being ultra-aggressive and tried to make it where they couldn’t just post up.” The altered defense, he added, allowed Free State’s defenders to be get comfortable. “Instead of Scout (Wiebe) or Abbey (Casady) or Chelsea (Casady) trying to guard

Robinson was the only other FSHS player in double figures, with 11, while Chelsea Casady scored nine points, senior Jackie Garcia had six points and three assists, Wiebe scored six points off the bench and both Abbey Casady and Rogers scored four. Robinson said having seven players contributing differently gave Free State a strong dynamic. “That helps so much, because we don’t have to count on just Kennedy to have a good game,” Robinson said. “If Kennedy’s a little off, we know at least one other person will step up.” At 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Free State will play at Shawnee Mission West. In Saturday’s other games at the Firebird Winter Classic, Topeka Washburn Rural beat Leavenworth, 53-48, in the third-place game; Junction City beat Blue Valley West, 44-34, for fifth place; and Lawrence rolled to a 53-24 victory in the seventhplace game.

As far as ideal Saturday mornings go, playing in the seventh-place game at the Firebird Winter Classic had to be about as appealing to Lawrence High’s girls basketball team as some bizarre combination of running suicides while doing homework. The Lions’ exuberance, however, didn’t match any such nightmarish scenario. LHS rebounded from backto-back losses at the tournament with a 53-24 thumping of Kansas City, Kan., Sumner Academy. After seeing his team lose in emotional and potentially devastating fashion Friday — in overtime, against Blue Valley West — Lawrence coach Nick Wood enjoyed the way the Lions responded on a short turn-around. He said their effort was an example of their maturity. “It’s hard to show up at 10:30 in the morning after a tough loss the night before,” Wood said. “I think it shows a lot of character that they were able to show up with that type of energy and be ready to go.” Sluggishness was a nonfactor for the Lions (5-7) despite the early tipoff. Lawrence raced to a 19-4 advantage after just one quarter, led by sub Bri Anderson’s six points in the opening eight minutes. Junior Anna Wright contributed five points to the hot start, and sophomore Kionna Coleman scored four points as the Lions established a high-energy approach that kept them rolling throughout the blowout win. Between Anderson, who finished with a game-high 13 points, and Coleman, who went for 12 points and six boards, scoring inside and Monica Howard and Marissa Pope dishing assists, LHS was rolling. Coleman said Lawrence wanted to set a positive tone after a disappointing loss less than 24 hours before. “It got everybody’s blood going,” Coleman said of the first-quarter start, adding the early success was contagious. By halftime, Anderson and Coleman had combined for 19 of Lawrence’s 30 points, and the Lions had a more-thancomfortable 18-point lead. Wood said the LHS offense was running crisply and creating great, open looks in the paint for the duo. “The way they were both finishing around the basket,

Young brothers, mother all need rescuing Dear Annie: I am a 23-yearold married woman. I have two much younger brothers from my mother’s second marriage. They live with her in another state. Recently, Mom admitted that she is an alcoholic. I’ve always had my suspicions, but was never sure, since we weren’t close. When my husband and I went to visit her last summer, we could see first-hand how severe it is. Mom barely weighs 90 pounds. She gets so drunk that she cannot walk or talk. She told us she has driven while drunk and that she also becomes violent. Not long ago, she broke several bones when she fell down the stairs. My brothers had to call 911. Mom was not this way when I was growing up. Her divorce was only recently finalized, and she received custody of my brothers. I’m worried sick about them. Mom has no family in her town, and I am far away. My brothers’ father is bipolar and a drug addict, so living with him is not an option. I’m trying to get my mother to move closer to me. How can I get some help? — Desperate in Colorado Dear Colorado: We’re not sure what kind of help you need. Your brothers might be better off in your custody, if you are willing. Or, again de-

Dear Annie: My husband and I have been married for 15 years. We were both widowed. This past holiday season, he dragged in several boxes from the garage to decorate our house with things made by his first wife. They were dog-eared, tattered, yellowed calico fabric items in multiple colors and 40 years old. I gently told him that it insulted me that he wanted his first wife’s decorations on the walls and mirrors. He

HBO presses its ‘Luck’ The new series “Luck” (8 p.m., HBO) is the New York Yankees of television dramas, an enterprise so laden with talent, it inspires both awe and resentment. Racetracks are natural settings for tragedy and comedy. Is there anything more exalted than a thoroughbred horse in action? Or more squalid than a hungover gambler desperate for one more score? Dustin Hoffman stars as a Chester “Ace” Bernstein. We meet him in the opening moments as he’s being released from prison after three years and meeting his driver and bodyguard, Gus (Dennis Farina), a man Ace has contrived to win a casino jackpot in order to act as the “owner” of Ace’s $2 million Irish thoroughbred. A former professor, “Luck” creator David Milch (“NYPD Blue,” ‘‘Deadwood”) knows his Shakespeare. And like the Bard, Milch modulates focus here, concentrating on the high and the low, the king and the fool. The best parts (and the moments closest to levity) involve four degenerate gamblers: Marcus (Kevin Dunn), Renzo (Ritchie Coster), Jerry (Jason Gedrick), and Lonnie (Ian Hart). They’re eager for a big payday and clueless how to handle good fortune. There are also subplots involving a cryptic horse trainer (John Ortiz) and his veterinarian lover (Jill Hennessy), and any number of riders who are literally jockeying for our attention. Directed by Michael Mann (”Miami Vice,” ‘‘Manhunter”), “Luck” looks like nothing else on television. It’s hard to take your eyes off it. At the same time, the relentless emphasis on neon visuals can be off-putting, particularly when a story unfolds in fits and starts. I’ll admit, I found “Luck” a bit annoying for the first 20 minutes or so. It seemed like a music video occasionally interrupted by cryptic dialogue or, in the case of Nick Nolte’s character, an oddball horse owner, monologue. But halfway through the pilot, I found myself hooked. I promised myself I would try to avoid the gambling puns and racetrack cliches, but I can’t conclude without at least one: Hold on, “Luck” is one heck of a ride.

for me to ask him to remove these things. I don’t want his past life in “our” home. Are my feelings justified? — Somewhere in Oregon Dear Oregon: It is pointless to be jealous of a dead woman. You might have had a better reaction from your husband if you had lovingly incorporated his memories into your life together. But that doesn’t account for his sudden interest in his late wife’s decorations and his temper tantrum. We think something else is going on and hope you can gently and sweetly get him to open up about it.




might not see eye to eye with a child or loved one. You might feel like he or she is walking all over you and ignoring your desires. Tonight: Express your feelings rather than act out.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)  Deal directly with one other person, knowing full well what lies ahead. You see matters somewhat differently, and you are able to convince that person of your logic. Tonight: Dinner with loved ones and family. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  You could be more experimental than usual. In a totally different setting, you might meet different people. Tonight: Let a loved one explain his or her thoughts. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  Your sixth sense allows greater give-and-

take. You know what you need to be doing as well as what you would like to squeeze in. Tonight: Go for some R and R. Sagittarius (Nov. 22Dec. 21)  A child or loved one twists your arm, so to speak. Off you go! Tonight: A little tired? Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)  Take a hint from Taurus: Stay close to home. Not every moment needs to be action filled. Tonight: There is no reason to push ... is there? Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  You tend to be outspoken, even without an invitation to do so. Others might not want to hear your opinions. Tonight: Rethink how you share your thoughts. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)  Getting through certain financial details might be very important before making any more commitments. It is better to side with a conservative approach than to create a risk-laden path. Tonight: Out at a favorite spot. — The astrological forecast should be read for entertainment only.

Romney would rank among the richest presidents ever By Connie Cass Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Just how rich is Mitt Romney? Add up the wealth of the last eight presidents, from Richard Nixon to Barack Obama. Then double that number. Now you’re in Romney territory. He would be among the richest presidents in American history if elected — probably in the top four. He couldn’t top George Washington who, with nearly 60,000 acres and more than 300 slaves, is considered the big daddy of Romney presidential wealth. After that, it gets complicated, depending how you rate Thomas Jefferson’s plantation, Herbert Hoover’s millions from mining or John F. Kennedy’s share of the vast family fortune, as well as the finer points of factors like inflation adjustment. But it’s safe to say the Roosevelts had nothing on Romney, and the Bushes are nowhere close. The former Massachusetts governor has disclosed only the broad outlines of his wealth, putting it somewhere from $190 million to $250 million. That easily could make him 50 times richer than Obama, who falls in the still-impressive-to-most-ofus range of $2.2 million to $7.5 million. “I think it’s almost hard to conceptualize what $250 million means,” said Shamus Khan, a Columbia University sociologist who studies the wealthy. “People say Romney made $50,000 a day while not working last year. What do you do with all that money? I can’t even imagine spending it. Well, maybe ... ”

People say Romney made $50,000 a day while not working last year. What do you do with all that money? I can’t even imagine spending it. Well, maybe ... ” — Shamus Khan, a Columbia University sociologist who studies the wealthy Of course, an unbelievable boatload of bucks is just one way to think of Romney’s net worth, and the 44 U.S. presidents make up a pretty small pond for him to swim in. Put alongside America’s 400 or so billionaires, Romney wouldn’t make a ripple. So here’s a look where Romney’s riches rank — among the most flush Americans, the White House contenders, and the rest of us: ! Within the 1 percent: “Romney is small potatoes compared with the ultra-wealthy,” said Jeffrey Winters, a political scientist at Northwestern University who studies the nation’s elites. After all, even in the rarefied world of the top 1 percent, there’s a big difference between life at the top and at the bottom. A household needs to bring in roughly $400,000 per year to make the cut. Romney and his wife, Ann, have been making 50 times that — more than $20 million a year. In 2009, only 8,274 federal tax filers had income above $10 million. Romney is solidly within that elite 0.006 percent of all U.S. taxpayers. ! As a potential president: Romney clearly stands out here. America’s super rich generally don’t jockey to live in the White House. A few have toyed with the idea, most notably New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg,

whom Forbes ranks as the 12th richest American, worth $19.5 billion. A lesser billionaire, Ross Perot, bankrolled his own third-party campaigns in 1992 and 1996. Many presidents weren’t particularly well-off, especially 19th century leaders such as Abraham Lincoln, James Buchanan and Ulysses S. Grant. Nor was the 33rd president, Harry Truman. “These things ebb and flow,” said sociologist Khan. “It’s not the case that all presidents were always rich.” A few former chief executives died in debt, including Thomas Jefferson, ranked in a Forbes study as the thirdwealthiest president. Comparing the landlocked wealth of early Americans such as Washington, Jefferson and James Madison, with today’s millionaires is tricky, even setting aside the lack of documentation and economic changes over two centuries. ! How does Romney stand next to a regular Joe? He’s roughly 1,800 times richer. The typical U.S. household was worth $120,300 in 2007, according to the Census Bureau’s most recent data, although that number is sure to have dropped since the recession. A typical family’s income is $50,000. Calculations from 24/7 Wall St. of the peak lifetime wealth (or peak so far) of Nixon, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Obama add up to a total $128 million — while Romney reports assets of up to $250 million. If you consider only those presidents’ assets while in office, without millions earned later from speeches and books, their combined total would be substantially lower, and Romney’s riches would leave the pack even further behind.

BEIRUT — The Arab League halted its observer mission in Syria on Saturday because of escalating violence that killed nearly 100 people the past three days, as pro-Assad forces battled dissident soldiers in a belt of suburbs on the eastern edge of Damascus in the most intense fighting yet so close to the capital. The rising bloodshed has added urgency to new attempts by Arab and Western countries to find a resolution to the 10 months of violence that according to the United Nations has killed at least 5,400 people as Assad seeks to crush persistent protests demanding an end to his rule. The United Nations is holding talks on a new resolution on Syria and next week will discuss an Arab peace plan aimed at ending the crisis. But the initiatives face two major obstacles: Damascus’ rejection of an Arab peace plan, which it says impinges on its sovereignty, and Russia’s willingness to use its U.N. Security Council veto to protect Syria from sanctions. Syria’s Interior Minister Mohammed Shaar vowed the crackdown would go on, telling families of security members killed in the past months that security forces “will continue their struggle to clean Syria’s soil of the outlaws.” Government forces launched a heavy assault on a string of suburbs and villages on the eastern outskirts of Damascus, aiming to uproot

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA speaks at the University of Michigan’s Al Glick Field House on Friday in Ann Arbor, Mich.

WASHINGTON — Fuzzy math, Illinois State University’s president called it. “Political theater of the worst sort,” said the University of Washington’s head. President Barack Obama’s new plan to force colleges and universities to contain tuition or face losing federal dollars is raising alarm among education leaders who worry about the threat of government overreach. Particularly sharp words came from the presidents of public universities; they’re already frustrated by increasing state budget cuts. The reality, said Illinois State’s Al Bowman, is that simple changes cannot easily overcome deficits at many public schools. He said he was happy to hear Obama, in a speech Friday at the University of Michigan, urge state-level sup-

port of public universities. But, Bowman said, given the decreases in state aid, tying federal support to tuition prices is a product of fuzzy math. Illinois has lowered public support for higher education by about one-third over the past decade when adjusted for inflation. Illinois State, with 21,000 students, has raised tuition almost 47 percent since 2007, from $6,150 a year for an in-state undergraduate student to $9,030.

“Most people, including the president, assume if universities were simply more efficient they would be able to operate with much smaller state subsidies, and I believe there are certainly efficiency gains that can be realized,” Bowman said. “But they pale in comparison to the loss in state support.” Bowman said the undergraduate experience can be made cheaper, but there are trade-offs. “You could hire mostly

protesters and dissident soldiers who have joined the opposition, activists said. Troops in tanks and armored personnel carriers attacked the suburbs of Kfar Batna, Saqba, Jisreen and Arbeen, the closest of which lie only a few miles from downtown Damascus, said the Local Coordination Committees activist network and the British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. Dissident troops were fighting back against the attackers, they said. In a nearby suburb, Douma, gunmen ambushed a bus carrying army officers, the state-run news agency SANA, calling the attackers “terrorists.” It said seven officers were killed.

The assault in the suburbs seemed to be a sign of the growing presence of dissident soldiers closer to the capital. Although the tightly controlled Damascus has been relatively quiet since the uprising began, its outskirts have witnessed intense anti-regime protests and army defectors have become more visible and active in the past few months. “The fighting today is the most intense near the capital since the uprising began,” said Rami Abdul-Rahman who heads the Observatory for Human Rights. “The Syrian regime is trying to finish the uprising militarily now that the case is being taken to the United Nations.”


IMF chief presses for more cash By Pan Pylas Associated Press

DAVOS, SWITZERLAND — The head of the International Monetary Fund appeared to be making headway Saturday in her drive to boost the institution’s financial firepower so that it can help Europe prevent its crippling debt crisis from further damaging the global economy. Christine Lagarde, who replaced Dominique StraussKahn as managing director of the fund six months ago, is trying to ramp up the IMF’s resources by $500 billion so it can help if more lending is needed in Europe or elsewhere. The IMF is the world’s traditional lender-of-last-resort and has been involved in the bailouts of Greece, Ireland and Portugal. Insisting that the IMF is a “safe bet” and that no country had ever lost money by lending to the IMF, Lagarde argued that increasing the size of the IMF’s resources would help improve confidence in the global financial system. If enough money is in the fund the markets will be reassured and it won’t be used, she said, using arguments similar to

Her plea appeared to find a measure of support from ministers of Britain and Japan, sizable IMF shareholders that would be expected to contribute to any moneyraising exercise.


Afghans blast French plan to withdraw early part-time, adjunct faculty. You could teach in much larger lecture halls, but the things that would allow you achieve the greatest levels of efficiency would dilute the product and would make it something I wouldn’t be willing to be part of,” he said. At Washington, President Mike Young said Obama showed he did not understand how the budgets of public universities work. Young said the total cost to educate college students in his state, which is paid for by both tuition and state government dollars, has gone down because of efficiencies on campus. While universities are tightening costs, the state is cutting their subsidies and authorizing tuition increases to make up for the loss. “They really should know better,” Young said. “This really is political theater of the worst sort.”

George Osborne, Britain’s finance minister, said there is “a case for increasing IMF resources and ... demonstrating that the world wants to help together to solve the world’s problems,” provided the 17 countries that use the euro show the “color of their money.” European countries have said they’re prepared to give the IMF $150 billion, meaning that the rest of the world will have to contribute $350 billion. However, many countries, such as Britain and the U.S., want Europe to do more, notably by boosting its own rescue fund. Japan’s economy minister, Motohisa Furukawa, said his country would help the eurozone via the IMF, too, even though Japan’s own debt burden is massive. Unlike Europe’s debt-ridden economies, Japan doesn’t face sky-high borrowing rates, partly because there’s a very liquid domestic market that continues to support the country’s bonds. Europe once again dominated discussions on the final full day of the forum in Davos. Despite some optimism about Europe’s latest attempts to stem the crisis, fears remain that turmoil could return.

KABUL, AFGHANISTAN — France’s plans to withdraw its combat troops from Afghanistan a year early drew harsh words Saturday in the Afghan capital, with critics accusing French President Nicolas Sarkozy of putting domestic politics ahead of Afghans’ safety. A wider proposal by Sarkozy for NATO to hand over all security to Afghans by the end of next year also came under fire, with one Afghan lawmaker saying it would be “a big mistake” that would leave security forces unprepared to fight the Taliban insurgency and threaten a new descent into violence in the 10-year-old war. Sarkozy’s decision raises new questions about the unity of the U.S.-led military coalition. It also reopens the debate about whether setting a deadline for troop withdrawals will allow the Taliban to run out the clock and seize more territory once foreign forces are gone.

Etta James’ legacy remembered at service GARDENA, CALIF. — Etta James was remembered at a service at the City of Refuge church Saturday attended by hundreds of friends, family and fans as a woman who triumphed against all odds to break down cultural and musical barriers in a style that was unfailingly honest. The Rev. Al Sharpton eulogized James in a rousing speech, describing her remarkable rise from poverty and pain to become a woman whose music became an enduring anthem for weddings and commercials. Sharpton on Saturday opened his remarks by reading a statement from the president. “Etta will be remembered for her legendary voice and her contributions to our nation’s musical heritage,” President Barack Obama’s statement read. The Grammy-winning singer died Jan. 20 after battling leukemia and other ailments, including dementia. She had retreated from public life in recent years, but on Saturday her legacy was on display.

CINNAMON AND CHOCOLATE will be the featured topics of discussion at the February meeting of the Kaw Valley Herbs Study Group. Topics are often timely with the season, so the next meeting will have a Valentine’s flavor. The group meets on the second Tuesday of each month.

Interested in herbs? Study group offers opportunities for learning W

hen I first heard about the Kaw Valley Herbs Study Group, my interest was piqued. I grow a few herbs — basil, oregano and a few others — but have been afraid to venture beyond those herbs with which I am very familiar. A study group sounded like the perfect place to learn new herbs and new tips on how to use them. The Kaw Valley Herbs Study Group is open to anyone and meets on the second Tuesday of each month, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Unitarian Fellowship, 1263 North 1100 Road, Lawrence. It charges $2 per person to cover costs for the group, but refreshments are provided and the organization is not-for-profit. Students are allowed in free. Tamara Fairbanks-Ishmael, the group’s founder, modeled the organization after an herb study group her mother started three years ago in Lincoln, Neb. “We felt like there has been a real movement towards sustainability and growing things yourself, and that has led to a groundswell of interest in herbs,” Fairbanks-Ishmael says. “We

want to help people learn what to do with their herbs and to empower them. That’s what it really comes down to.” The study group selects one herb to highlight each month and one wild native plant or spice. Topics are often timely with the season, so February’s herb is cacao (chocolate) and the spice is cinnamon. They also discuss the Herb of the Year, named by the National Herb Society, at every other meeting. The 2012 Herb of the Year is the rose. Fairbanks-Ishmael says meetings have anywhere from 25 to 48

It separates herbs from spices by the part of the plant that is used; leaves or stems of the plant are typically used from an herb, while spices are more likely to be from the bark or seed of a plant. “We try to cover culinary, medicinal and aromatherapy uses; history and folklore; household and cosmetic properties; and the growing, harvesting, and propagation of the plant,” explains Fairbanks-Ishmael. “We also have demonstrations and samples when possible.” Teaching a group everything there is to know about an herb in such a short time is impossible, but Fairbanks-Ishmael hopes people leave with a foundation that helps them THE KAW VALLEY HERBS STUDY GROUP also discusses the Herb of the find more information if they desire.

I just have a great, well-protected spot on the south side of my house. I pick and use rosemary all winter long.” She notes that the phrase “rosemary for remembrance” comes from historical lore about the herb helping to sharpen the brain and memory.

Kovel’s Antiques: Many types of tea accessories are collectible By Terry Kovel

Tea, it is said, was first drunk by the Chinese Emperor Shen Nung about 2737 B.C. Then someone in China invented a device that shredded tea leaves, making it easier to brew tea. But the idea of making tea in a cup instead of a pot seems to have begun in the 19th century when silver infusers were made to hold tea leaves. Infusers usually were small balls with many holes. The ball could open and close to hold the leaves. It was dipped into a cup of hot water a few times, then removed. Silver infusers became very popular in the late-19th century and silversmiths were soon making not just balls, but tiny silver teapots, eggs, lanterns, acorns and other shapes, some with elaborate embossed designs. These sterling teaballs with chains are collected today and cost from $100 to $1,000. The teabag was invented in the United States in 1903. It was a hand-sewn silk bag. Soon a machine was invent-

THIS 1-INCH-HIGH OCTAGONAL teapot is a tea infuser, the inspiration for the teabag. It is sterling silver and would sell for about $100. It can be used every day. Just open the top and, because tea leaves expand, fill it less than halfway with tea leaves. Then dip it in a cup of hot water. ed to fill and close a teabag made of special paper. Eventually aluminum foil was also used for disposable bags. The familiar rectangular teabag was not invented until 1944. Today there are circular and pyramidal teabags, too. All of this has led to a variety of collecting choices for tea lovers. Some save free teabag tags. Some belong to groups that make folded figures from dried teabag paper. Some collect the many types

of tea infusers made today, like the Yellow Submarine, dinosaurs, robots, monkeys, a berry on a stem and more. Most sell for under $20. Another tea-related collectible is the spout strainer, a small hanging strainer kept in a teapot spout with a large hairpin-shaped wire. There are also tea sets, tea cups and saucers, tea caddies, tea strainers, tea-caddy spoons, bag squeezers, “spoon rests” for used teabags, drip bowls and even a plastic disk that folds to squeeze a teabag or cover a cup to keep tea warm. At a 1970s tea collector’s auction, we bought teaballs and strainers, notebooks filled with postcards about tea, books, woodblock prints and advertising. We also have the original patent papers for the “teastir,” a perforated aluminum-foil rectangle filled with tea. One side becomes a handle to take it out of a cup. It was invented by Ralph Kovel, a tea drinker and collector.

Sligh Furniture Co. of Grand Rapids, Mich. What can you tell me about the company? A: Sligh Furniture Co. was founded in 1880 by Charles Sligh, who had previously worked at Berkey & Gay, another Grand Rapids furniture manufacturer. The city was a major center of furnituremaking from the late 1800s until about 1925. Most furniture companies at that time didn’t make complete bedroom sets but specialized in one category of furniture, such as beds, dressers or nightstands. Sligh was the first company to sell all the pieces needed to furnish a bedroom in matching styles and finishes. The company struggled during the Depression and by 1933 switched to making desks, which cost less to produce. The company is still in business, currently making home entertainment and home office furniture and accessories. Sligh bedroom sets were made in the 1920s and 1930s.

gave me a small bronze sculpture of a horse mounted on a marble base. It’s signed “K Mobius” near the horse’s rear legs. The sculpture, including the base, is 10 1/4 inches high and 9 inches from nose to tail. What can you tell me about the sculptor and my horse? A: Your bronze was made by German sculptor Karl Mobius (1876-1953). Artists who create bronze sculptures actually work with clay or wax. Then the sculpture is taken to a foundry, where a complicated process begins. A rubber mold of the sculpture is made, then wax is poured into the mold to create a hollow wax model that matches the original sculpture. A ceramic coating is then applied to the wax and the model is fired so the wax melts. The ceramic shell that’s left is filled with molten bronze, cooled and removed. The resulting bronze sculpture is then ground and polished. The mold for a small bronze like your horse is usually Q: Back in about 1955, a used about 25 times before Q: I have a bed made by World War II veteran friend it wears out. In general, an

original bronze sculpture the size and age of yours sells for about $500. Q: We own a large wooden picture frame with extensive gold-colored metal embellishments. We were told the frame was “a Tiffany” and that it hung in the Arkansas Governor’s Mansion in Little Rock during the one year (1927-28) John Martineau was governor. What do you think the frame would be worth if the story is true? A: We can find no reference that says Louis Comfort Tiffany ever made wooden frames. And everything he did make was marked in some way to identify it as “Tiffany.” It is possible that Tiffany & Co., the famous store, sold a frame like yours, but we think the store would also have marked the frame. The histories of some antiques and collectibles become garbled over the years. Still, a large, well-made and elaborately decorated period frame could sell for thousands of dollars.

says Peltzman, who has been fielding questions from his current crop of students about Jason’s sudden celebrity. “Jason, just like you saw on TV ... danced to the beat of his own drum. He was just a real positive kid, great to be around, true character. I remember one day asking him — it was winter time and he was in boots and shorts — and I asked him, ‘What’s the deal with the boots and the shorts?’ And (he said), ‘Mr. Peltzman, I’m bringing back a new style. This is the manly look.’”

Lessons from Dad On “Idol” that style had changed again, this time borrowing from both his early high school Elvis roots and the added element of a new nickname he picked up after graduation when he was studying mechanics in Arizona: “Wolf.” Thus, the contestant facing the judges was a fella with slicked-back hair, forearm tattoos, mechanic’s blues — emblazoned with “Wolf” — and a handmade guitar given to him as a gift by his father, Scot Hamlin, who died Feb. 1, 2010, at the age of 49. The guitar — a “git-fiddle” as Hamlin called it — was a surprise he’d gotten at Christmas three years ago after teaching himself to play with a trashed-out guitar he’d picked up as a student in Arizona. At that time he was just starting to get into making his own music. That year, Jason’s mother flew him in to Eudora from his home in Livermore, Calif., to not only surprise Scot and the rest of the family for the Christmas holiday but also to surprise Jason by giving him his very own Hamlin-made guitar. “I remember Scot saying, ‘I know Jason. He can punish a few things.’ He’s a big, burly guy. So when he built it, he said, ‘I’m not putting too much fancy stuff on this. I’m making a workhorse guitar for this kid because he’s going to be banging it a ton.’ He put the ‘Wolf’ inlay on the neck and he designed all that and sent it off for a guy to make,” says Mannucci, who now lives in Colorado. “It was a big deal.” With his new guitar in hand, Hamlin refined his style even more and began to take singing much more seriously, choosing to perform roots and rockabilly music. Zac Hamlin says that style not only got his brother a small following in his central California town but also in Europe. “His special lady friend sells ‘guts’ for satellites that

‘AMERICAN IDOL’ 7 p.m., Wednesday and Thursday, FOX go into space. And, so, most of her work is in Europe,” Zac Hamlin says. “And so he’s been to Europe a couple of times and has gone and played gigs in different bars there because they like American people.”

The next American Idol? And apparently Americans like him, too. Since his “Idol” audition, bloggers, reviewers and entertainment reporters have been buzzing about Hamlin and his chances at winning. Most seem to have been as impressed as the three “Idol” judges, though Mannucci says niggling questions have come from left field: Why “American Idol”? And, moreover, could his fun-loving personality be authentic? “Some of the grass-roots places are saying, ‘If he’s really a roots kind of guy, why would he go on a big reality TV show and do all these things?’ And I think that his dad told him a long time ago — and his dad was a huge roots music fan — ‘You know, I would love for you to get your music out, but here’s the deal, Jason. You can starve and you can live in a tent and not own any possessions and you can drive all over this country and sing beautiful music, or you can go hit one of those reality TV shows and let everyone hear you all at once. Either they’re going to like you or they’re not,’” she says. “I think he just said, ‘Dad’s right. I love music, and if I do it, I do it. And if I don’t, at least I tried.’” And by the way, Eudora can vouch for the validity of the goofy showman who kissed

host Ryan Seacrest and danced so hard he broke — and then mended — the show’s celebration room backdrop. “The thing that stuck with me the most is that he hadn’t changed. He was the same kid he was when he was here six or seven years ago,” says his former teacher Peltzman before starting to laugh. “It was kind of a shock to see him; life’s not changed him much. He still hasn’t grown up.” As for his chances to win “American Idol,” even being the featured story on an episode of the show doesn’t guarantee Hamlin will make it any further. He first must survive the Hollywood round of the show (which will air within the next two weeks), where the singers will be whittled down again by Tyler, Lopez and Jackson. Then, if he survives, he’ll make it to the at-home voting portion of the show. His friends and family are surprisingly level-headed about his chances, but just having seen all the attention he’s received so far, they’re pretty sure he’s already gotten more than he’d ever dreamed of: a chance to perform on national TV, to share his beloved music with the masses, and, perhaps most importantly, to tell the story of his father, whom he clearly misses. “My own personal opinion of it is, Jason would never be an American Idol. I think he did well (last Sunday night), but I don’t think he’s the best singer by far of all the people that they have chosen probably,” says his maternal grandmother, Nell Trefz, deadpan, before a smile creeps onto her face. “But who am I to say? What do I know?” — Staff writer Sarah Henning can be reached at 832-7817.

Local author’s ‘Sharp Time’ a late-night labor of love By Margie Carr

Lawrence author Mary O’Connell is no stranger to acclaim. She is the recipient of a James Michener Fellowship and a Chicago Tribune Nelson Algren Award. And The New York Times declared the author had a “gift for mordant wit” after her collection of short stories, “Living With Saints” (Grove, 2001) was published. Her new novel, “The Sharp Time” (Delacorte, 2011), is also garnering rave reviews. “Palpable grief plus irreverent humor equal one extraordinary debut novel,” is how Kirkus Book Review described it. Publisher’s Weekly’s starred review said O’Connell shows “exceptional skill in building tension and creating atmosphere,” and Booklist wrote that readers will be “spellbound” by the “words and images that swirl through the pages.” Despite all of the accolades for the KU alumna and graduate of the Iowa Writer’s Workshop, O’Connell admits to crying with relief when she read her first review. “(It) is sort of a dream come true,” she says. “Really, when you’re writing very late at night at the kitchen table, you never know what the response will be.” And for O’Connell, some-


times the kitchen table late at night is the only opportunity she has to write. Her three children: Juliana, 13, Zachary, 10, and Veronica, 3, keep her busy throughout most days. “I try to find time to work whenever I can — at the pickup line or the doctor’s office, whenever there’s a quiet moment, but I prefer working late at night because there are no phone calls or kid appointments that interrupt me,” she says. It was during those late nights of the past few years that O’Connell created the edgy and vulnerable Sandinista Jones, an 18-year-old high school student. Still grieving the death of her mother, Sandinista finds herself at a crossroads after an incident in her math class. She walks out of school and decides to take a job at a funky secondhand clothing store. “I wanted to write about a girl in late adolescence and how institutions in her life let her down,” O’Connell says. “It is a very vulnerable time. The world is cracking open and often it’s not what you thought it was going to be. For Sandinista it was also a process of giving into empathy, coming of age and coming to terms with herself.” Sandinista bonds with a co-worker, Bradley, and she learns that she isn’t alone in her suffering. “Schools and churches are big institutions in kids’ lives

and they can let young people down,” O’Connell says. “But within these systems there are individual kindnesses that can carry us through difficult times.” During the icy January week during which the story takes place, Sandinista must decide how she is going to deal with the situation at her school, and the choices she makes are what drive the plot of the novel. Although the book is categorized as young adult fiction, O’Connell admits that it isn’t for everyone. “There is some language and some fairly mature themes,” she says. But the author is pleased that students at Fordham University in New York will be studying the book’s themes for a class called “Catholicism and The American Self.” The Catholic Church has been a reoccurring subject for O’Connell who sees the cornerstone of redemption particularly relevant for Sandinista. The contradictions within the Church are also “good for the gray area in art” according to O’Connell. Fellow author Laura Moriarty will interview O’Connell about the themes of “The Sharp Time,” as well as her writing process, on Saturday at the Lawrence Public Library’s Questions and Authors series. The event takes place at the library, 707 Vt., at 2 p.m. and is free and open to the public.

Queen for a lifetime

Eugenides among critics’ nominees

Book examines 60-year reign and eventful life of Elizabeth II By Sarah Weinman


Maxine Salcido, unemployed, Lawrence “‘Moonlight Becomes You.’ The suspense is killer. It’s very mysterious and very good.”

In her Diamond Jubilee year on England’s throne, Queen Elizabeth II remains something of a cipher. The world has watched her transform from the hesitant young wife and mother of two, who ascended the throne 60 years ago, to a stalwart octogenarian beaming at her grandson William’s wedding last year. In between, there’s been plenty of drama, gossip and tumult surrounding her family, yet Elizabeth herself seemed apart from it all, ever the embodiment of her native land’s wartime exhortation to its citizens to Keep Calm and Carry On. Gary Brooks, What, then, does it mean retired, to be queen of a country Lawrence that one does not govern? “‘Call Me Ted,’ an autobiTo be thrust into centuriesography of Ted Turner. It’s old rituals when those rituinteresting insight. I like to als carry little meaning in a read about real people.” speedily changing culture? And how can one operate as a mere human being, with faults and petty grievances and unbridled enthusiasms, when one must be queen 24/7? “Elizabeth the Queen,” a new biography by Sally Bedell Smith with more than 500 pages of text and another hundred-plus pages of back-matter, comes as close to answering these questions as anyone can without hearDon Sholberg, ing directly from Elizabeth. marriage and family (As Smith, who previously counselor, chronicled the lives of PrinLawrence cess Diana, Pamela Harri“I’ve been reading a lot of man and various Kennedys poetry, especially Mary Karr. in book form, points out in I like its freshness, directness an afterword, the royal family won’t choose an official and clarity.” biographer until after Elizabeth’s death.)

AP File Photo

BRITAIN’S QUEEN ELIZABETH II, shown with her husband, Prince Philip, in a 2005 file photo in London, is the subject of a new biography by Sally Bedell Smith. Smith instead paints a detailed portrait of the monarch from extensive interviews with Buckingham Palace staffers, friends and acquaintances of the royals, and a great many media accounts of Elizabeth’s public exploits starting in 1936, when the 10-year-old princess learned that her father, the eventual George V, would be king instead of his abdicating older brother, Edward VIII. “Does that mean you will have to be the next queen?” asked Elizabeth’s younger sister, Margaret. “Yes, someday,” Elizabeth replied. “Poor you,” Margaret said. Any chance of a life outside the spotlight’s glare was dashed, and Elizabeth understood from the first what it was to put duty above all. What follows is a meticulously researched volume that makes up for the lack of family access with choice details gleaned from countless interviews of those close to Queen Elizabeth. While Elizabeth “keeps her views of literature well guarded” (as opposed to

Alan Bennett’s delightful fictionalized version in “An Uncommon Reader”), she does read and enjoy the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize winners, especially historical fiction by Kate Grenville, Lloyd Jones and Lawrence Hill. In private, she laughs readily and dotes on her grandchildren, but the daily sight of the “red boxes” containing sensitive information about England’s domestic and foreign policies meant she was always working, even as a young mother. The book is strongest when depicting Elizabeth’s early years as queen, from her closeness to Winston Churchill to advising later prime ministers Harold Macmillan and Alec Douglas-Home and the struggle she felt in keeping up her extraordinary schedule. Sometimes she faltered: Her conduct after the death of Princess Diana (presented here as a manipulative schemer eager to please, whom the queen tried her best to love, signing letters to the princess as “Mama”)

is well chronicled, but less known was Elizabeth’s hand ling of a 1966 mudslide that killed more than 116 children and 28 adults in Wales. Her advisers wanted her to visit the scene, but she resisted: “People will be looking after me. Perhaps they’ll miss some poor child that might have been found under the wreckage.” Though Elizabeth relented eventually, the “tardy reaction” (in Smith’s words) was a harbinger of delayed reactions and public criticism to come. Smith depicts Queen Elizabeth as a woman whom all of her constituents must identify with, no matter what. It’s enormous responsibility that comes at great cost (and also explains her husband, Prince Philip’s, penchant for off-the-cuff remarks that get him into trouble every now and then), and Elizabeth pulls this delicate balance off again and again. No matter what one’s opinion of the monarchy, Elizabeth’s ceremonial reign has been an admirable mix of dignity and empathy.

Novel ‘The Odds’ explores desperate marriage By Carolyn Kellogg Los Angeles Times

This is how we meet them: “The final weekend of their marriage, hounded by insolvency, indecision and, Jake Wilson, stupidly, half-secretly, in cook, the never-distant past ruled Lawrence by memory, infidelity, Art “‘Clash of Kings’ (by R.R. and Marion Fowler fled the Martin). It’s great.” country.” This middle-age Midwestern couple doesn’t go far: just to Niagara Falls, where they spent their honeymoon. There is a cache of cash involved and a desperate gambling plan that, if Art has his way, will make everything right. The novel, “The Odds: A Love Story,” by Stewart O’Nan shares DNA with Albert Brooks’ 1985 film “Lost in America”: a married couple, poor decisions, bright-eyed scheming and that unusual Megan Wilkenson, mix of humor and seriousstudent, ness. Art and Marion spend Lawrence “‘Saltpie: A Choctaw Journey Valentine’s Day weekend in from Dark to Light.’ It’s for a Niagara Falls, visit a handful of tourist attractions, eat at children’s lit class.” restaurants they can’t afford,

see Heart in concert, drink, gamble and have sex. On the surface, it’s routine, expected, and that’s what Art is counting on: His plan involves taking the last of their money and making a cash mountain out of a secret molehill. Married for 30 years, Art and Marion were caught by the 2008 recession. Their old, charming house was prone to expensive repairs; like many, they’d taken money out of it to keep it up. And while they were at it, they overspent remodeling the kitchen. This wouldn’t have been so bad if Marion’s hours hadn’t been cut back, and if Art hadn’t lost his job in the fallout from the economy’s retraction. He was in insurance; he should have known the odds. “Odds of a U.S. citizen filing for bankruptcy: 1 in 17.” This refrain — from the whimsical “Odds of seeing a shooting star: 1 in 5,800” to the depressing “Odds of a couple fighting on Valentine’s Day: 1 in 5” — works as a framework, heading every chapter. Stuck there

like news from an ironic census, these odds put the characters’ desires in perspective. Should they try? Is it hopeless? When it comes right down to it, the odds of whether a marriage will make it to its 25th anniversary (1 in 6, according to O’Nan) aren’t all that interesting; it’s the details of the marriages that are. This novel is an intimate portrait of a marriage: We get to know Art and Marion closely, as well as or better than they know each other. We see things closely from each of their points of view. Worn into grooves of routine, they jostle for bathroom space, accommodate and annoy each other. Financially, things are very bad for them. They will almost certainly lose the house. To duck out of debts, they’re going to file for divorce (this isn’t explained in detail, but it’s the plan). Art has cashed out the last of their savings, $40,000, and he’s going to bet it all on roulette. He has a surefire method. They’ll smuggle the

winnings — far more than they’re allowed to carry across the border — back into the country and start again. Art has splurged on a new ring — not just because jewelry is an asset they can’t seize, but because he wants to reconfirm his commitment to Marion. Yet she has drifted further from him than he realizes; increasingly, she looks forward to their divorce as not a sham break but a real one. She just hasn’t quite figured out how to explain that to him. All of this could make for rather grim melodrama, but not in O’Nan’s hands. He brings lightness to every scene, while still making the characters tremendously real, recognizable yet fresh. He works in the micro — the novel slips in under 200 pages — writing close, with fine detail. There is a clarity to O’Nan’s prose: It doesn’t call attention to itself, doesn’t flaunt dazzling sentences or stunning descriptions. This may undersell his work, which is delightful.

NEW YORK (AP) — Novelist Jeffrey Eugenides, sciencetechnology writer James Gleick and the late historian Manning Marable were among the nominees announced for the National Book Critics Circle awards Eugenides was cited for “The Marriage Plot,” a novel in part about a subject close to reviewers: the love of books. It’s his first release since winning the Pulitzer Prize in 2003 for “Middlesex.” Other fiction finalists included short story writer Edith Pearlman, whose “Binocular Vision” was a National Book Award nominee last fall; Alan Hollinghurst’s acclaimed “The Stranger”; Dana Spiotta’s “Stone Arabia” and Teju Cole’s debut novel “Open City.” Finalists were selected last week by the critics circle, founded in 1974. Great reviews do not guarantee an NBCC nomination. Some of the year’s best-received books were among the missing, including Chad Harbach’s “The Art of Fielding,” Karen Russell’s “Swamplandia” and Christopher Hitchens’ “Arguably.” Winners will be announced March 8. Gleick was a nominee in nonfiction for “The Information,” a review of how information has been shared through the centuries and its singular importance in modern times. In biography, Marable was cited for “Malcolm X: A Life of Reinvention,” which he worked on for more than a decade. He died last year just before the book’s release.

‘Dead End in Norvelt’ wins Newbery Medal for best children’s book By Hillel Italie Associated Press

NEW YORK — This year’s winners of the top prizes in children’s literature were honored for stories of resilience over the most everyday troubles: a boy grounded by his parents, a dog that loses its favorite toy. Jack Gantos’ “Dead End in Norvelt” won the John Newbery Medal for the best children’s book of 2011, and Chris Raschka’s “A Ball for Daisy”

won the Randolph Caldecott award for best illustration. The prizes were announced Monday by the American Library Association during its midwinter meeting in Dallas. Previous winners include such favorites as Louis Sachar’s “Holes” and Brian Selznick’s “The Invention of Hugo Cabret,” the basis for Martin Scorsese’s film “Hugo.” Within hours of the prizes’ announcement, “Dead End in Norvelt” and “A Ball for

Daisy” were both in the top 50 on and both out of stock. Gantos and Raschla are well established in children’s publishing. Gantos, 60, has been a finalist for the Newbery and the National Book Award. Raschka, 52, won the Caldecott in 2006 for “The Hello, Goodbye Window.” Gantos’ novel follows the humorous adventures of a boy named Jack Gantos, grounded “for life” by his parents and prone to the most

gushing nosebleeds. But he is restored by the stories he learns about his hometown, Norvelt, a planned community in Pennsylvania founded during the Great Depression. The author is more than a little like the Jack Gantos of his book. He spent part of his childhood in Norvelt and shares his character’s sensitive nose. Gantos said he thought of “Dead End” after giving a eulogy for his aunt that looked back on Norvelt’s special past. “I talked about the spirit of

people helping people, and how people really banded together,” Gantos said during a telephone interview from his home in Boston. “And at the end of my eulogy, a lot of people came up to me and said they didn’t know about the history of Norvelt. I love history, and I love humor, so I thought history could use a little humor.” Raschka’s wordless picture book, told through watercolor, ink and gouache, recounts the saga of a white and gray terrier whose beloved red ball is sto-

len by a bigger, brown poodle. The ball bursts and Daisy’s spirit seems to break with it, until the poodle returns with a blue ball that leaves the pets and their owners equally content. Raschka said “Daisy” was inspired by his son, who at age 4 was devastated when his yellow ball broke during a scrape with a neighbor. The author said he began thinking of “those first feelings of losing something beloved” and knowing you can’t get it back.

Area author’s sci-fi debut honored on ‘best of’ list By Sarah Henning

It took nearly three decades, but Bryan Thomas Schmidt took the seed of an idea and spun it into acclaim from a national book seller. The Ottawa author’s science fiction debut, “The Worker Prince,” was honored as a notable release by Barnes & Noble reviewer Paul Goat Allen in his “Best Science Fiction Releases for 2011.” Schmidt will be signing copies of the Mosestinged space opera Saturday at Hastings Books. Copies of the Schmidt book will be available. The book can also be purchased at Cornerstone Bookstore at 217 S. Main St. in Ottawa, and Barnesandnoble. com. We sat down with Schmidt to talk about “The Worker Prince,” his road to publication and that thrilling Barnes & Noble mention. Sarah Henning: Can you tell us the background of the book — when you started writing it and how you got your inspiration? Bryan Thomas Schmidt: In Salina, when I was a kid, I was going to Bible school and going to church. I liked all the Biblical stories, but I also liked “Star Wars” and (later) “Battlestar Galactica” and all the science fiction stuff. ... I thought that the Moses story would make a really good space opera if somebody would tell it like “Star Wars.” So that’s where the idea came from. Of course, it took me 27 years to actually sit down and write it. I had that idea all that time. And some of the characters

BOOK SIGNING Who: Bryan Thomas Schmidt Where: Hastings Books, 1900 W. 23rd St. When: 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday What: A book signing for “The Worker Prince,” named one of Paul Goat Allen’s “Best Science Fiction Releases for 2011” for Barnes & Noble. are still in it. And the same opening line that I always wanted to write was the opening line of the book. SH: Since you came up with this idea so long ago, when you finally sat down to write it, how was that process? Obviously you’ve changed a lot as a person in 27 years, so do you think the characters would’ve been different if you’d written it when you first came up with the idea? BTS: Oh sure. For one thing, the original idea was for a big TV mini-series, like “Centennial” (a late 1970s miniseries) or something. Eighteen-hour television program was what the idea was. Because, back then, I didn’t want to write novels, I wanted to write television and film. I did go to Hollywood and I did go to film school and I did work — had a couple of screenplays and things that I was working on out there. Worked for A&E and The History Channel and all these places for a number of years. I did all that, but then after I had a lot more life experience and my understanding of how people work. ...

in about August of 2009 and finished in mid-November (2009). Then I put it away a little bit and did some rewriting. And then, over the course of the following year, 2010, I sent it out to agents and publishers and did some rewrites based on the notes that people gave me. It took me a long time and a lot of “Nos.” If you add them all up, I had 60 or 70 people who said no. And then I finally started sending it to some smaller presses and said, “Let me just try this, what the heck?” So I had three small presses that were interested in it and played them off for the best deal (laughs). ... With a small press, there’s no $10,000 or $15,000 promotion budget for my book. The marketing budget is whatever I can come up with. So I’ve been doing a lot of it on Twitter (@BryanThomasS) and email. ... So I have a podcast and I’ve done interviews and I’m doing a lot of book signings and trying to get the word out there. And, actually, as part of that, because I knew the guy, I sent it to the reviewer at Barnes & Noble. And he didn’t respond. I thought, “Oh, he probably hated it, he probably didn’t like it.” He’s reviewed for pretty big publications — Publisher’s Weekly and New York Times ...

SH: He’s a pretty big name (Paul Goat Allen)... BTS: I thought, “OK, that’s better than him slamming it.” I said I’d rather him say nothing. But then this list came out in December of the Best Science Fiction Releases for 2011 and the book was on there for an honorable mention, so that’s pretty cool. That’s pretty huge SH: So how did you find for a book by an unknown auyour publisher and when did thor, an unknown press, a debut novel — to be on that list you finish the book? BTS: It took me four months was pretty amazing. to write the first draft. Now, there’s been dozens of drafts — Staff writer Sarah Henning can be reached at 832-7187. since then. I started writing

What’s your favorite ‘children’s time’ lesson? Watching children develop faith a wonderful experience The Rev. Mary Newberg Gale, associate pastor, First Presbyterian Church, 2415 Clinton Parkway: The short answer is “every single one.” Among my favorite parts of Sunday morning worship is the time I get to spend with the children. It is a wonderful way to allow kids to feel they have a role in the life and worship of a congregation. I’ve often shared how difficult it is to ensure that the children’s time is really for them, not simply a chance for the adults to hear a watered-down sermon. It is fundamentally a time to talk about God and our worship in developmentally appropriate ways with

the youngest members of our family. And while some children thrive on the genuine laughter and joy that often arises in the Newberg Gale pews from their conversations, others can be crippled by what feels like ridicule. It is a very fine line to walk. My favorite stories to share are the ones in which I feel children share a unique perspective that is missing in our adult faith. There is a reason Jesus tells his followers, “Let the children come to me, for such is the kingdom of God.”

This Advent season I talked to our children and youth about how we can prepare for God. When I asked their thoughts, one child shared, “I can eat breakfast without attitude. We should do everything without attitude.” Adults would be better Christians if we lived by that motto. It is discussion of the Golden Rule and the Greatest Commandment and how they affect our lives that spark a faith that will grow. Watching as children develop a faith of their own is a miraculous experience. Those are my favorite lessons. — Send e-mail to Mary Newberg Gale at

Metaphor of sin spreading through glasses a meaningful lesson The Rev. Glenn Fletcher, pastor of student ministries, Christ Community Church, 1100 Kasold Drive: I remember as a small boy, the pastor called all the children up to the front as he so often did during the church service. Showing us a tall glass full of what appeared to be crystal clear water, he said, “In the beginning God created us in his image and likeness.” He then displayed smaller glasses of clear water, and told us, “God said we were created VERY good.” He continued by explaining that sin entered the world, as he poured a small drop of dye into each glass. At first, it hardly seemed to make a

difference. But as the dye continued to course its way through the water, it didn’t take long for the entire glass to Fletcher be changed to a different color. The pastor then went on to pour out the stained water into other smaller glasses, saying “sin gives birth to sin” and “that no one who lives is without sin.” He did this until the entire table was covered with small glasses filled with stained water. Then as he held up the tall glass of still clear water, he

told us how sad and angry it made God to see all that he made so beautiful be forever ruined. Then he showed us something that has stuck with me all my life. He said, “God sent his son Jesus to pour out his life so that we can be made clean.” And he poured just a little bit of the clear water from the tall glass into each of the stained glasses. We watched in amazement as each one slowly turned clear again. With the tall glass now empty, the amazing gift of Christ’s sacrifice on the cross for my sins became so meaningful to me. — Send email to Glenn Fletcher at

Mike Yoder/Journal-World Photo

A NEED FOR A STAND-ALONE FEATURE PHOTOGRAPH led me to an after-school hiking activity. When fur coats were provided to the participants, it created many possibilities for images but took some work to isolate a visually interesting photograph.


decided to join them, stay nearby and use my wide-angle lens. When they stopped to scan the treeline with their binoculars, I circled, attempting to creatively frame groups of two or three girls. The problem was that some in the group were not

wearing fur and I wanted the shot to include only fur-bearers. (That may be a pun.) My wide-angle attempts included too much unnecessary visual information. To create more isolation between my furred and nonfurred friends, I moved to another path parallel to the group and zoomed my lens to a medium telephoto focal length. This enabled tighter framing on certain girls, simplifying the scene and reducing back-

ground clutter. So when three girls, all in fur, stepped near each other and scanned the area for wildlife with their binoculars, I was ready. The isolation from the rest of the group lasted for six frames and only eight seconds. From a quick review of my camera monitor I knew I had captured a successful and somewhat surreal photograph.

Our photography staff is often relied upon to gather standalone images for the newspaper. Like a story that doesn’t require an illustration, these feature photographs require no text beyond a two-sentence caption answering the questions of who, what, where, when and why of the subject. Their main purpose is to be entertaining visual documents. Preferably, they display visual creativity, interesting lighting, beauty, humor, etc. Staff photographers are on alert for this “wild art” daily. The best approach for a feature hunt is to seek out activities that are a potential source for interestThe best ing photographs.

(Photographers imaginations tend not to be based on reality.) When the nature guide informed the hikers — six young girls — that they could wear fur coats for the hike, I realized no amount of imagination could have dreamt up this photogenic scenario. I began hyperventilating. Now the task was to capture a single feature image worthy of this situation. As the girls tried on the coats inside the center, I frantically circled, framing images of the youngsters weighed down by the thick fur. The first interesting interaction came when the girls recognized a unique but not pleasant odor to some of the coats. Visualize a girl sticking her coat sleeve to the nose of a friend. As the smeller pulled back in a malodorous response, I snapped away. They were OK photos, but the scene was cluttered and didn’t emphasize the coats as much as I wanted. Next the group prepared to head outdoors, and I ran ahead to adjust my exposure settings and study the area for background possibilities. I also had to decide whether to remain close to the group and photograph with my wide-angle lens or keep my distance and use a telephoto. As they started down the path I

ack in high school, Danielle Steffen had her own personal radio — a big, burly radio with massive clodstomping boots, a Eudora High letter jacket and no off button. Behind the wheel in her family’s old, green truck, the AM/ FM dial was long dead, but the music was strong — and loud. “We didn’t have a radio in one of my dad’s old trucks, and so he’d be like, ‘Here’s your radio,’ and just start singing,” Steffen says. “He sung all the time.” “He” is Jason Hamlin.

2001, when Hamlin was goaded by his older sister, Hannah, and the school’s drama teacher at the time, Jeannine Sample, into performing as the deep-throated, peopleeating plant Audrey II in the high school’s production of “Little Shop of Horrors.” “Jason’s older sister was in it, and we didn’t have ... an Audrey II voice. I think it was Hannah who suggested him because Jason wasn’t in choir,” says Sample, who also had Hamlin as a student in her sophomore English class. Jason didn’t seem interesting in doing it, Sample says, but he was persuaded eventually. “And he was wonderful,” Sample says. They were in the old Eudora high school back then, and Jason was hooked up to a mic up where the spotlight was, so he was in the back of the theater during the performance.

Prom pirate The theater bug didn’t bite, but it could’ve been that Hamlin had enough of his own theatrical streak to get by without being on stage. He went to his sophomore prom as Elvis, and then to his senior prom as a pirate, going so far as decorating his pickup truck as a ship, perfect for carting around other pirates and maidens and making a splash at the dance. Every day was a dress rehearsal for Hamlin, says teacher Erik Peltzman, who had him two years in study hall. “He’s really a big guy, so he had these really big boots, but he never laced them up or anything. He just walked around in these boots all the time and shorts,” Please see HAMLIN, page 10C
