Solutions to bullying sought at workshop By Shaun Hittle

Mark Twain scholar Alan Gribben is working with NewSouth Books in Alabama to publish a combined edition of “Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” and “Tom Sawyer,” left, that replaces the Nword with “slave” in an effort not to offend readers. He said the Nword appears 219 times in “Huck Finn” and nine times in “Tom Sawyer.”

New edition of Twain’s work replaces N-word large. And he got his start here in Kansas and at Kansas University. He found himself suddenly thrust into the national spotlight last month when news outlets found out about his edition of Mark Twain’s “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer” and “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.” The controversy is all about the word. The nasty racial epithet. The N-word. It appears nine times in “Tom

Free State High School sophomore Mel Maddox spent part of her Saturday educating members of the Lawrence community about the atmosphere in local schools for gay and lesbian students. Maddox, 16, is president of her school’s Gay Straight Alliance, a school-based group that seeks to improve conditions in schools for those bullied for their actual or perceived sexual orientation. Lawrence schools, she said, are ahead of the curve when it comes to preventing bullying, but students such as herself still face frequent harassment because of their sexual orientation. “Compared to other schools I’ve been to, it’s a lot safer,” she said. “But there’s still some work do.” Maddox, along with other several other advocates and educators served on a panel Saturday at the Lawrence Public Library during a workshop titled “Bullied: We can make a difference.” After a showing of the documentary “Bullied,” about a high school student who was beaten for being gay, community memPlease see WORKSHOP, page 2A

Snow day studying credited in speller’s victory By Shaun Hittle

South Junior High School seventh-grader Susan Rockhold credits Mother Nature for her win Saturday at the 2011 Douglas County Spelling Bee. She was a little behind in studying for the annual event — then came the snow. Susan spent the entire two snow days she had off from school to work on her spelling bee prep: reading and spelling all day. “It’s a lot of words I had to

study,” she said. The extra work paid off as she beat out 28 other fifththrough eighth-graders to earn her spot at the Sunflower Spelling Bee in March and a chance to compete in the Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington, D.C., in June. In the ninth and f inal round, Susan squared off on stage at Southwest Junior High with Raintree Montessori student Seth Peters. Seth, who also qualifies for the state spelling bee for his runner-up finish, misspelled “contiguous.” Susan ended

the podium and quietly spelling her words. She said she had a few butterflies up on stage but nothing compared to the anxiety her dad, Ed, was experiencing in the audience. “I was so nervous,” he said. Susan’s mom, Rebecca, joked about her husband’s face contortions as he wiggled away wishing his daughter along. It was all worth it, though. “I’m so proud,” Rebecca said. “I’m just about in tears.” — Reporter Shaun Hittle can be reached at 832-7173.

New ‘Huckleberry Finn’ edition riles some critics CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1A ���

Gribben says he’s not trying to rewrite Mark Twain. He views his book as an alternative version for those too offended by the word to pick up the original. It won’t — and shouldn’t — replace the real thing, he said. It’s easy to dismiss this as political correctness gone too far, he said. He’ll still probably assign the ordinary text in his classes — though he does substitute for the word when teaching. This often elicits a sigh of relief from some students in his classes, which typically enroll up to one-third black students. And in the last 40 years, much of the media coverage around the novels centers on the usage of the word. There’s so much more in the books, Gribben said — the social commentary, the biting humor — that people can’t seem to get to because they’re blocked by the word. But what helped crystallize his idea to create a new edition was the response he got when traveling in the deep south and doing library lectures on Mark Twain. Teachers told him that the books are not banned outright in their districts, but the works are slowly dropping off lists of approved books that English teachers can teach in their classrooms. That’s not the case in Lawrence public schools, where “Huckleberry Finn� is taught in the junior year of high school in American Literature I and Advanced American Literature I courses. But across Alabama (and in other places, too, he’s found), fewer and fewer people are reading “Tom Sawyer� in junior high schools and “Huckleberry Finn� in high schools. It’s all done quietly, he said. You don’t usually read about it. “I’ve removed the last excuse for teaching two great masterpieces in American classrooms,� he said. ���

Back in the early 1960s, Gribben, a Parsons native, was a KU student, headed for a bachelor’s degree in English. He graduated in 1964 and went on to receive his doctorate at the University of California at Berkeley. “I developed my capacity for resistance and finding my own way at KU,� he said. That capacity has helped him in fending off the amount of hate messages — nearly 40 emails a day at one point, he said — he’s received since the story went national, he said. His father owned a photo engraving business in Lawrence for a time, and he still visits every few years. He said he considered Kansas, with its Bleeding Kansas history tied to slavery,

a good place to have these kinds of discussions. While an undergraduate, he participated in civil rights protests along Massachusetts Street and was inspired by professors, such as Stuart Levine, whom he had in English class. Levine, who still lives in Lawrence, said he has kept up with Gribben. “He is gentle, smart and kind,� Levine said — almost the exact opposite of the way he’s been portrayed nationally. ���

KU has its own expert on Mark Twain. Susan Harris is a distinguished professor of English and an associate director for the Hall Center for the Humanities. She’s known Gribben for years, she said. While she, like most academics, disagrees with his actions, she also said that she has respect for his motives. The work is too important for a word to get in the way of reading it, she agreed, but added that it’s important not to rewrite the past. She doesn’t substitute for the word in her teaching, but feels that the works shouldn’t be taught to junior high students, and probably not even high school students, except for, perhaps, honors classes. It’s difficult for younger readers to understand those themes, she said. But, as for the word, like it or not, she said, slavery is a part of our country’s history. And that can be an uncomfortable thing to discuss. “As long as we gloss over it, we’re not standing up to the painfulness of the word,� Harris said. The controversy shouldn’t detract from Gribben’s abilities as a Twain scholar, she said. His work detailing the contents of Twain’s library, including notes on the pages of books, has been “one of my bibles for the last 25 years,� she said. ���

Gribben doesn’t give many media interviews these days and is glad the book — and his introduction — will soon be hitting shelves nationwide so it can speak for itself. “I don’t see it as my place to run hither and yon and explain myself to people who don’t see fit to inform themselves,� he said. He’s not sorry, and he still thinks he did the right thing. And when Gribben needs some reassurance, he often turns to Twain. “Truth is mighty and will prevail,� Twain wrote in a note to himself. But it’s the rest of the quote that Gribben feels is especially pertinent. “There is nothing the matter with this, except it ain’t so.� — Higher education reporter Andy Hyland can be reached at 832-6388.

Humane Society mulls renovations By Mark Fagan

Leaders of the Lawrence Humane Society will meet Tuesday to consider moving ahead with plans to renovate the organization’s shelter to include: � Separate isolation rooms for dogs and cats. � Dedicated air-handling systems to prevent germs and illnesses from spreading. � Comfortable rooms for visitors to use when meeting potential pets for adoption, and more parking spaces for visitors, employees and others to use. “They’ve decided that it’s necessary,� said Midge Grinstead, the humane society’s executive director. “What they haven’t decided is whether they want to raise the money.� That issue is up for consideration Tuesday, during the humane society’s board meeting at 6 p.m. at Central National Bank, 3140 Nieder

United States Marshals on Friday arrested a man wanted in connection with the Florida hit-and-run death of 1993 Lawrence High School graduate Spencer Schott, according to Sgt. Tom Bingham of the Jacksonville Beach Police.

Bingham said Adam Shepard, 30, was arrested by marshals in the Chicago area Friday afternoon, though Bingham wasn’t able to provide other details about the capture. Shepard is accused of running his vehicle into and killing Schott, 35, in Jacksonville Beach, Fla., on Jan. 22. Shepard has ties to Tope-

Road, just northeast of SuperTarget. “We’re not going to rush into a decision,� said Charles Derby, a board member. “We’ll weigh all the facts and make an informed decision. There’s no set time frame.� As proposed, renovations would be expected to cost about $350,000, plus another $70,000 or so to install special kennels, Grinstead said. She’s already secured $75,000, through grants from the RICE Foundation and the Kriz Foundation, but no work can proceed unless more private money can be raised. While the humane society relies on tax money — $256,000 from the city of Lawrence, and $28,000 from Douglas County — to help finance a $1.1 million operational budget, the organization’s major capital expenses rely on donations and other sources. Renovations in 2007 cost the organization $696,000, Grinstead said, and the

TOPEKA — A proposal by a Lawrence legislator would require that second-hand stores maintain records of their purchases and that people selling goods show identification. House Bill 2059, by Rep. Tom Sloan, R-Lawrence, has the support of Lawrence police who say they are facing an increasing problem in tracking down stolen property. “Several sets of burglars we have dealt with know which stores in town have the weakest recording systems, or recording systems that they can manipulate so they

do not have to present identification for their transaction,� said Detective M.T. Brown in written testimony to the House Corrections and Juvenile Justice Committee. The bill would require that anyone selling items to a second-hand store show identification that shows their name, age, sex and address. If a minor were selling, they must be accompanied by a parent or guardian who would have to show ID. The measure would require second-hand stores, including pawnbrokers, to keep a register of all purchases, the seller’s address, sex and age, a copy of the seller’s identification card, and a gen-

bers asked questions of the panel and brainstormed solutions to bullying. Event coordinator and director of Headquarters Counseling Center, Marcia Epstein, said the workshop was organized in response to some recent national incidents in which bullying based on sexual orientation has led to suicide. “This hasn’t happened in Lawrence, but we don’t want it to happen,� she said. “We can start a community conversation.� About 80 people attended the hour-and-a-half workshop. The entire community has a responsibility to stop bullying and promote acceptance, Epstein said. “There are so many things we can do� to prevent bullying, Epstein said.

$200,000 that had to be borrowed wasn’t paid off for 18 months. “We can’t borrow money,� she said. “We have to raise the money.� The shelter opened in 1995 at 1805 W. 19th St., just east of Harper Street and north of the Douglas County 4-H Fairgrounds. Another building was added in 2000. Original plans for the shelter — an operation that handled about 7,000 small animals a year ago — didn’t include special accommodations for needs that are clear today, Grinstead said. Dogs have chewed through plastic panels in the isolation area’s dog runs, and ill cats’ struggles to recover are hampered by their proximity to canines. The project also would add 20 parking spaces, nearly doubling the current total of 23.

U.S.-Russia nuclear treaty takes effect A new U.S.-Russia nuclear arms control treaty went into effect Saturday, securing a key foreign policy goal of President Barack Obama and raising hopes among officials on both sides that it will provide the impetus for Moscow and Washington to negotiate further reductions. “The treaty marks significant progress toward President Obama’s vision of a world without nuclear weapons,” U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said after exchanging ratification papers with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on the sidelines of an international security conference in Munich. “Partnership with Russia is vital to our continued progress and to all that we hope to accomplish,” she said. “We must build the habits of cooperation that let us rise above our differences to address urgent matters of global security together.” The New START treaty — the first major revamping of nuclear disarmament deals since the late Cold War era — was approved by the U.S. Senate in December after a bruising fight during which Obama pressed strongly for its passage. Russia ratified the deal last month.

Seventy-three dollars — the ticket amount for not clearing your sidewalk of snow — may be the figure most on your mind as you grab a shovel this weekend. But city officials say there are other important f igures to remember too. The city has new data about how often city sidewalks are used that might give people extra motivation to make sure they do their part to keep sidewalks clear. “These numbers tell us people really are out there,” said Jessica Mortinger, a transportation planner for the city. “People sometimes say they drive by and never see anybody using a sidewalk, but that’s really not the case.” The new numbers were gathered in September — sans snow — but they show that pedestrians and bicyclists make up more than 8 percent of all traffic on some stretches of streets. The city gathers the data as part of the National Bicycle and

Nasdaq is the largest electronic securities trading market in the U.S., with more than 2,800 listed companies. A federal official told The Associated Press that the hackers broke into the service repeatedly over more than a year. Investigators are trying to identify the hackers, the official said.

Officials assess sidewalk usage CONTINUED FROM PAGE 3A

Pedestrian Documentation Project, which aims to provide good information to community leaders making decisions about future bicycle and pedestrian projects. Volunteers are stationed at specific counting stations during three two-hour time slots that include both weekend and weekday hours. The hard data is then used to create monthly and annual projections using methodology developed by engineers from around the country. Here’s a look at the numbers, although the city doesn’t provide specific locations in order to not compromise future traffic counts: ● Naismith Drive: 57 1 pedestrians per day or about 208,000 per year. ● Massachusetts Street: 509 per day or about 186,000 per year.

● West Ninth Street: 431 per day or about 157,000 per year. ● West 27th Street: 290 per day, or about 105,000 per year. ● North Second Street Bridge: 230 per day or about 84,000 per year. ● East 19th Street: 101 per day or about 37,000 per year. ● Harvard Road: 94 per day, or about 33,700 per year. ● Monterey Way: 92 pedestrians per day, or about 33,600 per year. ● West Sixth Street: 71 per day, or about 26,000 per year. ● Bob Billings Parkway: 60 per day, or about 22,000 per year. ● Iowa north of 15th Street: 55 per day or about 20,000 per year. The report also compares the amount of pedestrian traffic along the roads with the amount of vehicle traffic. West 27th Street had the highest percentage of pedestrians at 8.97 percent. When

you throw in bicyclists, the number of nonmotorized users grew to 13.95 percent. Iowa Street north of 15th Street had the lowest percentage at 0.22 percent. At six of the 12 locations, pedestrians accounted for more than 1 percent of the total usage. The other locations where that was the case were Naismith Drive, 8.22 percent; Harvard Road, 4.35 percent; West Ninth Street, 3.13 percent; Massachusetts Street, 3.03 percent; and Monterey Way, 1.23 percent. As for shoveling your sidewalk, the city is scheduled to start ticketing property owners on Monday for sidewalks that aren’t shoveled. The fine is $20 but court costs add another $53 onto the total cost of the ticket. — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362. Follow him at

School board to find how to make up days CONTINUED FROM PAGE 3A

The four days that Superintendent Rick Doll already had called off classes earlier this year either will be made up as previously scheduled or not made up at all, thanks to latitude granted by state education officials. Doll But from Wednesday on out, any school time lost to weather delays or cancellations must be made up. And that either could be through additional minutes tacked onto each remaining school day, or by affixing a day or days onto the end of the academic calendar. Mother Nature likely will have a say as well. “If this is the only one (makeup) day, it’s easier to make the decision to add minutes onto the school day,” said Mark Bradford, the board’s vice president. “If there’s several more, I’d say, ‘Forget that; let’s look at a day or days to make that up.’” The board’s chance to decide whether to cut into after-school afternoons or shorten summer vacation likely will come during one of two remaining meetings this month: Feb. 14 or Feb. 28, Doll said. Bradford is looking forward to hearing what Doll recommends. “It’s a matter of talking with staff to see what’s best for kids,” Bradford said. Doll, of course, would prefer to keep schools open for the remainder of the year, with no more cancellations for inclement weather. But he notes that snow is back in the forecast for Monday. “We can’t catch a break,” he said. — Schools reporter Mark Fagan can be reached at 832-7188.

A PRICING PUZZLE If you need to sell your home, but it has lost value since you first bought it, you’re facing a pricing puzzle. But before deciding on a fair price that may be below what you really want, consider the costs of not selling by asking more. If your home sits on the market, waiting for a higher offer, you’ve got to figure in the costs of continuing your monthly mortgage payments, utilities, maintenance and insurance. Compare the asking prices of similar homes to the actual sales prices, often determined more by the lenders than the buyers. If you’re asking more than your home’s current value, the required appraisal will show that, and the

lender won’t approve the buyer’s loan, leaving you back at Square One. Walk in the buyer’s shoes and do your homework. Go ahead and tour similar homes listed in your area. Compare their price per square foot and see how yours stacks up against the competition in terms of value. This should help you arrive at an aggressive asking price that will hopefully be your sale price. Local inventory determines your price too. Divide 1 by the number of months of inventory (ask your agent for this number to determine the local ”absorption rate”). 8 months of inventory yields a 12.5% likelihood of selling, so speak with your agent and price accordingly.

EPA questions air-quality permit for Kan. coal plant

A HEADSTONE MARKING the grave of a number of pets and their masters sits Jan. 19 at the Hartsdale Pet Cemetery in Hartsdale, N.Y. By John Hanna



Federal officials concerned limits too lax

More choosing to be buried with pets By Jim Fitzgerald Associated Press Writer

HARTSDALE , N.Y. — Rhona Levy has her burial planned out. She’ll be cremated, her ashes will be divided into two bright red urns and she’ll be taken to the cemetery. Then, half of her will go into a plot with Snow, Putchke and Pumpkin, and the other half will go in nearby with Shaina and Twinkie. The New Yorker is among what appears to be a growing number of Americans who want to share their final resting place with their best friends — even if those friends were cats or dogs or iguanas — and are getting buried or reserving plots at pet cemeteries. “I’ve elected not to be married — it just didn’t happen, I was engaged a few times — and I didn’t have children,” the 61-year-old Levy said. “And these little furry kids, they just became my first and foremost love. So I wanted to be close after I died.” The International Association of Pet Cemeteries and Crematories, with 200 members, estimates that a quarter of the nation’s pet cemeteries take in deceased humans, and the demand is growing. “We hear about it all the time in our membership, people asking for it,” said Donna Bethune, the group’s executive secretary. At the 115-year-old Hartsdale Pet Cemetery, which claims to be America’s first pet cemetery, president and director Edward Martin Jr. estimates the remains of 700 people have joined the 75,000 or so buried animals. Inscriptions on the mostly small headstones at Hartsdale, which slopes up from a busy boulevard but was appropriately hushed after a big snowfall, reveal the sentiments of some of the people who decided to join their pets after death. A headstone for Edward A. Way, who died in 1976, bears what sounds like a tribute to a perfect marriage: “Here we sleep forever, I and my beloved Bibi, my loving companion for fourteen years, together in life, together in death.” Bibi’s grave is alongside, labeled “Miss Bibi Way, 19591973.” Cemetery records indicate she was a cat. In 1995, Arthur Link’s ashes were interred at Hartsdale, joining his wife Marjorie and 16 of “Our Longtime Friends.” The 16 cats each has a name engraved on the black granite monument: Aspen, Fritzie, Ginger, Gidget, Muffin, Bambi, Cricket, Snoopy, Gina, Patches, Foxy, Buttons, Dudley, Omar, Khayyam and Valentino. Martin said he thinks the increasing number of humans — 10 or 12 in each of the past few years, compared with three to five before — may be related to “more people getting used to the idea of cremation.” Hartsdale and most of the other pet cemeteries contacted said they require humans to be cremated before joining their deceased pets. Martin says Hartsdale will bury any animal, “as long as someone says, ‘This is a pet.”’ He says 90 percent of the animals are dogs and cats, but records also show birds, guinea pigs, ferrets, iguanas, turtles, monkeys, rabbits, fish, rats and a lion cub. Celebrities from George Raft to Mariah Carey have buried pets there. “There is a legend of an elephant, but I can’t verify that,” said Martin, who took over the cemetery in 1974 and plans to have his ashes buried there.

Associated Press Writer

TOPEKA — Federal officials said Friday that Kansas hasn’t imposed strict enough limits on the potential air pollution from a new coal-fired power plant in the southwest part of the state. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency questioned parts of a state Department of Health and Environment air-quality permit issued in December, which allowed construction of the plant by Sunflower Electric Power Corp. The utility, based in Hays, wants to build the plant next to an existing coal-fired plant outside Holcomb, in Finney County. The EPA’s regional office in Kansas City, Mo., released a letter Friday from Administrator Karl Brooks to KDHE Secretary Robert Moser, seeking “dialogue” about the air-quality permit. The letter says the EPA finds the permit’s limits on emissions of nitrogen oxides and sulfur dioxide too lax. EPA spokesman David Bryan said the state and the federal agency appear to disagree over whether Sunflower’s permit must be in line with tougher emissions rules issued by EPA last year. The federal agency wants Kansas to impose per-hour limits on the two pollutants, rather than 30-day averages. In a separate statement, the EPA’s regional office said short-term exposure to the two pollutants can cause people to have difficulty breathing and increase symptoms of asthma, resulting in more hospital visits and respiratory illnesses. “All we want to do is sit down with KDHE and go over those parts of the permit and get some answers,” Bryan said during an interview. It’s not clear yet what the letter means for Sunflower’s $2.8 billion project, which has bipartisan support among state legislators and the strong backing of Republican Gov. Sam Brownback. Bryan said the EPA isn’t stepping in to halt the project, and he wouldn’t speculate about where talks with state officials could lead. Sunflower spokeswoman Cindy Hertel said the company won’t comment until next

week about the EPA letter because, “We are still reviewing it.” KDHE officials also were reviewing the letter before responding. The permit was issued by Moser’s predecessor, Acting Secretary John Mitchell, who remains the director of the department’s Division of Environment. At the time, Mitchell said of EPA officials, “I will be very surprised if they have any problem with what we have done.” Brooks’ letter said the state agency “has not adequately addressed” concerns about proposed limits on pollution raised by EPA in August. At the time, KDHE was considering a draft of the air-quality permit that Mitchell eventually issued. Environmentalists strongly oppose Sunflower’s project, and the Sierra Club has asked the state Court of Appeals to overturn the airquality permit. The environmental group raises the permit’s provisions on nitrogen oxides and sulfur dioxides as an issue, among others. Amanda Goodin, an attorney for the environmental group Earthjustice, who’s involved in the case, saw the EPA letter as a warning to Moser and other state officials. She described it as the first step in a review that eventually could lead federal officials to block Sunflower’s project. “This EPA letter points out one of the most obvious failings of the permit,” she said. “I think Kansas is just looking for a way to make this permit more lax.” Sunflower supplies power for about 400,000 Kansans and plans to build a plant with a capacity of 895 megawatts, enough to meet the peak demands of 448,000 households, according to one state estimate. Three-quarters of the new capacity, or 695 megawatts, would be reserved for a Sunflower partner, Tri-State Generation and Transmission Association Inc., of Westminster, Colo. That’s long been a sore point for many critics of Sunflower’s push to add coalfired generating capacity, but the utility’s supporters say exporting electricity is as beneficial as exporting beef, wheat and other agricultural commodities.

Billionaire Koch brothers now at heart of GOP power By Tom Hamburger, Kathleen Hennessey and Neela Banerjee Tribune Washington Bureau

WASHINGTON — The billionaire brothers David and Charles Koch no longer sit outside Washington’s political establishment, isolated by their uncompromising conservatism. Instead, they are now at the center of Republican power, a change most evident in the new makeup of the House Energy and Commerce Committee. Wichita-based Koch Industries and its employees formed the largest single oil and gas donor to members of the panel, ahead of giants like Exxon Mobil, contributing $279,500 to 22 of the committee’s 31 Republicans, and $32,000 to five Democrats. Nine of the 12 new Republicans on the panel signed a pledge distributed by a Kochfounded advocacy group — Americans for Prosperity — to oppose the Obama administration’s proposal to regulate greenhouse gases. Of the six GOP freshman lawmakers on the panel, five benefited from the group’s separate advertising and grass-roots activity during the 2010 campaign. Claiming an electoral mandate, Republicans on the committee have launched an agenda of the sort long backed by the Koch brothers. A top early goal: restricting the reach of the Environmental Protection Agency, which oversees the Kochs’ core energy businesses. The new committee members include a congressman who has hired a former Koch Industries lawyer as his chief of staff. Another, Rep. Morgan Griffith of Virginia, won a long-shot bid to unseat a 14term moderate Democrat with help from Americans for Prosperity, which marshaled conservative activists in his district. By some estimates, the advocacy group spent more than a quartermillion dollars on negative ads in the campaign. “I’m just thankful that you all helped in so many ways,� Griffith told an Americans for Prosperity rally not long after his election.

‘EPA chokehold’ Perhaps the Kochs’ most surprising and important ally on the committee is its new chairman, Rep. Fred Upton. The Republican from Michigan, who was once criticized by conservatives for his middle-of-the-road approach to environmental issues, is now leading the effort to rein in the EPA. Upton received $20,000 in donations from Koch employees in 2010, making them among his top 10 donors in that cycle, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. In recent months the congressman has made a point of publicly aligning himself with the Koch-backed advocacy group, calling for an end to the “EPA chokehold.� Last week the chairman released a draft of a bill that would strip the

A spokesman for the famously media-shy family declined to comment. Koch allies say the brothers act out of ideological conviction.


Kochs in Washington When the 85 freshman GOP lawmakers marched into the Capitol on Jan. 5 as part of the new Republican House majority, David Koch was there too. The 70-year-old had an appointment with a staff member of the new speaker, Rep. John A. Boehner, R-Ohio. At the same time, the head of Americans for Prosperity, Tim Phillips, had an appointment with Upton. They used the opportunity to introduce themselves to some of the new legislators and invited them to a welcome party at the Capitol Hill Club, a favorite wine-and-cheese venue for Republican power players in Washington. The reception was a symbolic arrival for the Kochs, who have not always been close to the Republican hub. The brothers were known as hard-liners unafraid to take on conservative icons — even President Ronald Reagan and the American Petroleum Institute — whom they occasionally perceived to be too accommodating to liberal interests. David Koch ran as the Libertarian Party’s vice presidential candidate in 1980, when Reagan was the GOP presidential candidate. The Kochs provided initial funding for the libertarian Cato Institute and are key donors to the Federalist Society, among other conservative organizations. In recent years, they began drawing conservative media, business and political leaders to semiannual meetings in the West to discuss protection of the free-market ethos and to raise funds for their causes.

Throughout this effort, Americans for Prosperity kept a strong emphasis on promoting its views on climate change and energy regulation. In 2008, AFP began circulating a pledge asking politicians to denounce a Democratic-led effort to compel oil refineries and utilities to clean up emissions of greenhouse gases through a so-called cap-and-trade system. AFP said it amounted to a hidden tax increase.

The cap-and-trade legislation passed the House, but died in the Senate. AFP began working to defeat House Democrats who voted for the bill, showing the power of its new activist base. AFP does not disclose spending in individual races. But it said it facilitated tens of thousands of phone calls and organized dozens of events in recent congressional campaigns. Among the beneficiaries, besides Griffith, were newly elected Reps. Cory Gardner, R-Colo., and Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill. All three now sit on the energy and commerce committee. Gardner and Kinzinger declined to comment on their relationship to Americans for Prosperity and the Koch brothers, although a spokeswoman for Gardner emphasized that the group’s work was “totally independent� of his campaign, in line with federal election rules. Other committee members have deeper ties to the Kochs.

Rep. Mike Pompeo, R-Kan., who represents Koch Industries’ home district, launched an aerospace company with investment help from a Koch subsidiary. He sold the company last year. His chief of staff is Mark Chenoweth, a former Koch Industries lawyer. The change on the committee is “like night and day,� said Jeremy Symons, senior vice president of the National Wildlife Federation, a nonpartisan organization that lobbied the committee to stem greenhouse gas emissions. “In the past the committee majority viewed the Clean Air Act as an effective way to protect the public,� Symons said. “Now the committee treats the Clean Air Act and the EPA as if they are the enemy. Voters didn’t ask for this pro-polluter agenda, but the Koch brothers spent their money well and their presence can be felt.� Republicans wave off such comments, saying the focus on the Koch brothers is just the left’s latest conspiracy theory.

Ruling party leaders resign, but regime holds U.S. endorses plan for slower transition By Sarah El Deeb and Lee Keath Associated Press Writers

CAIRO — The leadership of Egypt’s ruling party stepped down Saturday as the military figures spearheading the transition tried to placate protesters without giving them the one resignation they demand, President Hosni Mubarak’s. The United States gave key backing to the regime’s gradual changes, warning of the dangers if Mubarak goes too quickly. But protesters in the streets rejected the new concessions and vowed to keep up their campaign until the 82-year-old president steps down. Many are convinced that the regime wants to wear down their movement and enact only superficial democratic reforms that will leave its deeply entrenched monopoly on power in place. Tens of thousands thronged Cairo’s central Tahrir Square in a 12th day of protests, waving flags and chanting, “He will go! He will go!” Mubarak, who has ruled Egypt with an authoritarian hand for nearly 30 years, insists he must stay in office until his term ends, after a September presidential election. The military figures he has installed to lead the gov-

A day after President Barack Obama pushed Mubarak to leave quickly, the U.S. administration changed tone Saturday with a strong endorsement of Suleiman’s plans. “It’s important to support the transition process announced by the Egyptian government actually headed by now-Vice President Omar Suleiman,” Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said at an international security conference in Munich, Germany. She warned that without orderly change, extremists could derail the process. A U.S. envoy who met Mubarak earlier this week, former ambassador Frank

Wisner, went further still, saying it is “crucial” that Mubarak remain in place for the time being to ensure reforms go through. He pointed out that under the constitution, a Mubarak resignation would require new elections in two months, meaning they would take place under the current rules that all but guarantee a ruling party victory. His comment was an abrupt change in message — on Friday, Obama called on Mubarak to “make the right decision.” The State Department later said Wisner was speaking as a private citizen since his official mission to Egypt had ended. America’s confidence in Suleiman is not shared by the protesters, who doubt the ruling party will bring democracy unless they continue their mass demonstrations. They want the concrete victory of Mubarak’s removal — though

House Republicans go easy on budget cuts for Congress By Andrew Taylor Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON — Republicans now running the House are barely touching Congress’ own generous budget even as they take a cleaver to many domestic agencies. A new GOP proposal would cut domestic agencies’ spending by 9 percent on average through September, when the current budget year ends. If that plan becomes law, it could lead to layoffs of tens of thousands of federal employees, big cuts to heating and housing subsidies for the poor, reduced grants to schools and law enforcement agencies, and a major hit to the Internal Revenue Service’s budget. Congress, on the other hand, would get nicked by only 2 percent, or $94 million. Recent hefty increases to the congressional budget — engineered by Democrats when they held power in the House from 2007-2010 — would remain largely in place under a plan announced Thursday by the chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, Rep. Harold Rogers, R-Ky. The plan, developed in close consultation with Republican Speaker John Boehner’s office, would cut

Charity begins at home, and Congress should lead the way with cuts to their own budget.” — Steve Ellis of Taxpayers for Common Sense Congress’ budget less than any other domestic spending bill, except for the one covering the Department of Homeland Security. All 12 spending bills left unfinished by Democrats will go into a single, enormous measure that Republicans promise to bring up the week of Feb. 14. “Charity begins at home, and Congress should lead the way with cuts to their own budget,” said Steve Ellis of Taxpayers for Common Sense, a Washington-based watchdog group. “Instead they’re protecting their bottom line while slashing everyone else’s.” The cut to Congress gets a little deeper, to 3.5 percent, if it were imposed for a full calendar year instead of the seven months that will remain in the current budget year. But so, too, would the cuts to other agencies — growing to 16 percent. When Democrats took over

Congress in 2007, they inherited a $3.8 billion budget for Congress. That includes money for members’ and leadership offices, House and Senate committees, and support agencies such as the Capitol Police and the Congressional Budget Office, which crunches numbers for lawmakers as they consider legislation. Since then, that budget has risen to $4.7 billion, a 23 percent increase over four years. The biggest jump, 11 percent, occurred when President Barack Obama signed a Democratic-written spending bill just after he took office in 2009. Among the first items of business when the GOP regained the House was to pass a bipartisan measure to cut office and committee budgets by 5 percent. That move prompted much selfcongratulation even though it would produce just $35 million in savings. For context, the deficit is climbing toward $1.5 trillion this year. Republicans bristle at the suggestion that Congress is getting off easy. They promise further cuts when the Senate pitches in and when the two chambers work out joint items such as budgets for the Capitol Police, Library of Congress and the Government Accountability Office.

New Congress spends little time in session WASHINGTON — Nice work if you can get it. The Senate was in session for five days last month. The House of Representatives was officially present for 11. But not really. The House halted business the week after the Jan. 8 shootings in Tucson out of respect for Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Ariz., who was critically wounded while meeting with her constituents. During the first month of the last Congress, in 2009 the House met for 15 days and the Senate for 18. At the start of the one before that, the House was in town for 16 days and the Senate for 17. Didn’t November’s election mean that Congress was supposed to roll up its sleeves and start fixing things? “Symbolically, it doesn’t look good,” said Jennifer Duffy, a Senate analyst for the nonpartisan Cook Political Report. The House chamber was empty last week as well. It’s

part of a revamped calendar from the new Republican leadership that guarantees members at least one work week at home in their districts each month, among other changes. “This time will be used to listen to constituents,” House Majority Leader Eric Cantor of Virginia said in a letter to all House members after the midterm elections. “The results of these reforms should be a U.S. House of Representatives that more accu-

rately reflects the Founders’ intent ... ‘direct and constant control by the citizens.’” If it keeps them out of Washington more often, all the better, one critic said. “The less time they are there, the less damage to this country they can do towards growing government, increasing taxes and finding more ways to redistribute my wealth,” said Daryl Bowles, of the Cooper County Tea Party in Boonville, Mo.

some appear willing to settle for his sidelining as a figurehead — with a broadbased transitional government to work out a new constitution. “What happened so far does not qualify as reform,” said Amr Hamzawy, a member of the Committee of Wise Men, a self-appointed group of prominent figures from Egypt’s elite that is unconnected to the protesters but has met with Suleiman to explore solutions to the crisis. “There seems to be a deliberate attempt by the regime to distract the proponents of change and allow the demands to disintegrate in the hope of (regime) survival.” That could mean the crisis could move into a test of sheer endurance, as protesters try to keep drumming out tens of thousands into Tahrir day after day. The government and military have promised not to try to clear protesters from the square, and soldiers guarding the square continued to let people enter to join the growing rally. But there were signs of army impatience Saturday. At one point, army tanks tried to try to clear a main boulevard by bulldozing away burned out vehicles that protesters used in barricades during fighting in the past week with pro-regime attackers. The move prompted heated arguments with protesters who demanded the husks remain in place in case they are attacked again. The troops relented only after protesters sat on the ground in front of the tanks.

Texas needs late rally to save Super Bowl week By Schuyler Dixon Associated Press Writer

AP File Photo

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA receives an autographed Green Bay Packers Charles Woodson jersey from Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, center, and Green Bay Mayor Jim Schmitt upon his arrival Jan. 26 in Green Bay, Wis.

Obama hosts bash with mixed feelings By Mark S. Smith Associated Press Writer

W A S H I N G T O N — President Barack Obama might not be able to grin and (Chicago) Bear it, but he’s throwing a Super Bowl party anyway, his beloved hometown team falling one game short of the title tilt. Which part of today’s activities might give him the most heartburn? The Bears’ archrivals, the Green Bay Packers, fighting it out with the Pittsburgh Steelers? The Wisconsin sausage in the gift baskets carted in by Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett? The pregame interview with Fox’s Bill O’Reilly? Fox is televising the game, so Obama is keeping with tradition — he sat down with CBS’ Katie Couric last year and NBC’s Matt Lauer the year before. It’s certainly not out of love for Fox. White House aides have denounced Fox as a vitriolic mouthpiece for the president’s foes. After some big fights early in the Obama presidency, the relationship with Fox has turned less contentious. O’Reilly said he believed it “will be the most watched interview of all time.” Despite the sometimes hard feelings, it’s hardly Obama’s first interview with Fox, and not even his first with O’Reilly. The two faced off in September 2008 when he was a candidate. Still, the live interview this afternoon f it neatly into Obama’s theme for this year’s bash: above the fray — albeit somewhat resigned — and good fellowship. It follows his appeals to turn down the heat of political rhetoric, first after his November election “shellacking,” then after the deadly shootings last month at a Tucson, Ariz., congressional district meeting. Hence the White House guest list — about 100 people, lawmakers and officials from both parties, and some glitz: Pennsylvania Sens. Robert Casey, a Democrat, and Pat Toomey, a Republican; Wisconsin Rep. Reid Ribble, a Republican who represents Green Bay; Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood, one of two Republicans in the Obama Cabinet; and singers Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez, the husband-wife partowners of the NFL’s Miami Dolphins. With the Bears on the sidelines, losers to the Packers in the NFC championship game, Obama has pronounced himself neutral — unlike last year, when he was “pretty sympathetic” to the New Orleans Saints, or the previous year when he rooted for the Steelers. His neutrality is born of a die-hard fan’s pain. Three days after the Bears’ season ended, Obama flew into Green Bay for a political speech and was promptly handed a Packers jersey and obliged to pose for pictures. He accused his hosts of “rubbing it in.” Later, during a factory tour, while saluting the long Packers-Bears rivalry and wishing the Packers good luck, he couldn’t help adding, “We will get you next year.” No sitting president has ever been to a Super Bowl. Obama said he’d like to go — if the Bears were in it.

ARLINGTON, TEXAS — Mother Nature messed with Texas — and might not be finished. The questions now: Did the cold, icy blast ruin everything for the first Super Bowl week in Dallas-Fort Worth? Or can the region save face in the final hours before Sunday’s big game between the Packers and the Steelers? This was a long week even before snow and ice fell off the roof of the $1.3 billion Cowboys Stadium in Arlington on Friday, injuring at least six people. Bad weather forced the cancellation of hundreds of flights, cutting short the time — and the money — fans would be spending in town. And just when things were looking up on a bright and sunny Saturday, snapping a 100-hour streak of subfreezing temperatures, snow was back in the forecast for today. “It’s a little depressing,” said Marc Castaldo, a bar manager in downtown Fort Worth. “I mean, this is Texas.” The cold week in Texas still amounted to an early spring break for the stalwart visitors from Pittsburgh and Green Bay. It wasn’t so fun for everyone else as 500 schools and day care centers in and around Dallas-Fort Worth were shut down for days, leaving crabby parents stuck at home with bored kids and few options because of the icy roads and sidewalks. Downtown Fort Worth was a deserted sheet of ice early in the week before things thawed a bit Friday. By then, fans were tiptoeing around puddles of slush and walking on shoveled sidewalks — the kind of scene one might find at the Winter Olympics. “Would it have been nice to have 50 or 60 (degrees)? Sure,” said Steelers fan Tom Detar, who drove in from suburban Pittsburgh early in the week even though he knew he would be going home before the game because tickets are too expensive. “But that’s

why we brought some warmer clothes.” The region is taking a beating online from celebrities, players and reporters — not the type of reaction Cowboys owner Jerry Jones had in mind when his vast new showplace was picked to host the NFL’s signature event. Peter King of Sports Illustrated labeled the snowy, unplowed “moonscape” a “debacle” in a Twitter message even before Friday’s ice accident at the stadium. Agent Leigh Steinberg tweeted: “No one blames Dallas for snowfall, but who was cleaning roads of snow, light traffic downtown, no one outside, not typical atmosphere” for a Super Bowl. By Saturday, complaints of baggage nightmares had faded, most major roads were clear and dry and temperatures warmed into the 40s. Airline officials said operations were normal and they anticipated getting most Super Bowl travelers into town despite cancellations throughout the week. Still, the head of the Dallas Restaurant Association estimated that as many as 70,000 people might be trying to get to the area Saturday — which suggests quite a bit of revenue was lost this past week. “We’ve had an amazing amount of unfortunate situations because of all the prepaid rooms ... that were left vacant as well as parties that were planned and catering functions,” executive director Ed Griffin said. It wasn’t all bad, though. The favorable turn in weather meant that hotels were filling up Saturday night and today after seeing cancellations all week, peaking Friday when a morning snowstorm dumped 5 inches in the Dallas suburb.

Runners dash 2 miles, scarf doughnuts, sprint back RALEIGH, N.C. — On your marks, get set, stuff your face. About 7,500 people took part in Saturday’s annual Krispy Kreme Challenge in Raleigh. The rules are simple and stomach-churning: run for two miles, eat a dozen Krispy Kreme doughnuts and then run back along the same two miles. That’s four miles of running

to burn off about 2,400 calories. It’s for a good cause, though. The race is operated by students at North Carolina State University, and it raises money for the North Carolina Children’s Hospital. Last year, the event took in more than $55,000. The race began in 2004 as a dare among friends. Only a

handful of runners took part in the beginning, but it’s grown steadily since then.

Liquor statistics The economic picture being painted by retailers who want to extend liquor sales to grocery and convenience stores in Kansas may not be as rosy as it seems.


roponents of changing Kansas liquor laws to allow liquor sales in Kansas grocery and convenience stores are presenting some figures that are pretty attractive to a state in need of jobs and tax revenue. A coalition of retailers, including the Walmart, Hy-Vee and QuikTrip chains, is making its case for such a change by contending that it would generate more than 12,000 new jobs in Kansas while adding $216 million in wages and $72 million in new tax revenue for the state. Opponents of the bill say those numbers are exaggerated, but the proponents, known as the Coalition for Jobs and Consumer Choice, didn’t just pull their figures out of the air. They came from a study conducted for the group by Kansas University’s Center for Applied Economics. The 16-page report carefully supports its claims with a variety of data that leave some room for questions. Although the report concedes that the change would eliminate about 341 liquor stores and 1,154 jobs in Kansas, that number would be offset by an increase of 116 grocery stores with 3,987 jobs and 449 convenience stores with 9,349 jobs. And the new jobs would pay better and contribute more to the state economy. The report arrives at these figures by comparing the per-capita number of liquor, grocery and convenience stores in five states like Kansas with “restricted” liquor sales to the number of stores in five “unrestricted” states like Missouri and Nebraska. The report found there are more grocery and convenience stores per capita in the unrestricted states and, therefore, concluded that its sample “provides clear evidence that the market supports more grocery stores and convenience stores than specialized liquor stores when the market is deregulated.” The statistics may support that claim, but it’s a pretty shaky basis on which to promise that changing state liquor laws will bring 116 new grocery stores and 449 new convenience stores to the state. The report also addresses how changing the liquor laws could produce more alcohol-related taxes without raising alcohol consumption in the state. This contention rests heavily on shifting more alcohol sales back to Kansas from border states, such as Missouri. The report looks specifically at the Kansas City metropolitan area, which has 48 grocery, convenience or liquor stores on the Missouri side within a quarter mile of the Kansas border. Granted, allowing liquor to be sold in grocery and convenience stores on the Kansas side might be a convenience for some, but it won’t address the tax issue that will keep many of those sales in Missouri. Missouri charges an excise tax of $2 per gallon on liquor, while Kansas charges an excise tax of $2.50 plus an enforcement tax of 8 percent on packaged liquor. While the statistics in the KU report aren’t wrong, they may not tell the whole story. The companies that commissioned the report have an obvious financial interest in a legal change that would allow their stores to sell wine and liquor. The losers in this equation would mostly be small independently owned liquor stores across the state. Maybe the change would be a good financial deal for the state, but it’s probably not quite as good a deal as the coalition and its report contend. Kansas legislators need to look beyond the rosy predictions.

Hard to keep up with change “Time keeps on slippin’, slippin’, slippin’ into the future.” — The Steve Miller Band Allow me to offer you a few things to consider while you’re laughing at Katie Couric and Bryant Gumbel. If you were unaware that folks were poking fun at the former hosts of NBC’s “Today” show, you are likely also unaware of a video making the rounds online. The clip, which dates from January 1994, shows Couric and Gumbel attempting to understand this new thing called ... the “Internet.” “What is Internet anyway?” asks Gumbel. “Internet,” explains Couric uncertainly, “is that massive computer network, the one that’s becoming really big now.” “What do you mean?” demands Gumbel. “What do you, write to it, like mail?” “No,” says Couric, “a lot of people use it to communicate.” She turns to someone off camera. “Can you explain what Internet is?” Folks online have found this greatly amusing, and it is. Still, I think we should cut Couric and Gumbel some slack. Because if it’s true time has made idiots of them, the larger truth is that it has made — and continues to make — idiots of us all. Try a thought experiment: Imagine you went to sleep in 1850 and awoke in 1900. How disoriented would you be? Well, you’d find there’s a machine now that sews, a device called a “typewriter” that writes, and a gun that fires hundreds of rounds a minute. Oh, and those who can afford it are enjoying a luxury called the telephone. The world has changed, but it has

Leonard Pitts Jr.

The point being, we have experienced — are experiencing — greater change at a faster pace than ever before.” hardly become unrecognizable. Now, imagine you went to sleep in 1961 and woke up today. As Grady used to say on “Sanford and Son,” great googly-moogly! Suddenly, there are fax machines, iPhones, iPods, iPads, apps, Wiis, HD, LCD, DVD, voice-mail, robo calls and microwaves to deal with. But the elephant in the elevator is this “Internet,” which has revolutionized virtually every human undertaking: sex, faith, news, communication, education, entertainment ... “everything.” The point being, we have experienced — are experiencing — greater change at a faster pace than ever before. But as a fish in water doesn’t know it’s wet, we, living through this challenging, disorienting, dislocating, “tectonic” shifting of everything, don’t always appreciate the blinding speed with which it is happening. I am reminded of how, back in maybe 2002, I interviewed a guy for some information, but he

couldn’t help me. “Why don’t you Google it?” he said. “What’s Google?” I asked. Go on and laugh. But understand that what makes yesterday’s cluelessness seem so funny in the present day is the subconscious but very real tendency to take for granted that we are history’s end result, the apotheosis of enlightenment, the thing toward which change was pointing all along. That’s what accounts for the smug amusement you feel when, for instance, you gaze upon one of those magazine ads from the 1940s where doctors are hawking cigarettes. But that sense of smugness is always folly, always fool’s gold, and never more so than now, when fundamental changes are occurring at unprecedented speed and you and I have not a clue where we’re going, what we’re going to be when we get there, nor even much time to wonder. We are too busy bailing water from the sinking boats of former lives and professions. We are too busy trying to divine the curve of the new horizon, as familiar old media, modes, models and mores die with bewildering suddenness and new ones snap to life faster still. So yeah, the video of Couric and Gumbel is funny, but it is also sobering. The fact that they can seem so utterly clueless just 17 years later is stark evidence of the speed with which our world is changing, charging toward an unknown future. Laugh if you want, but realize this much, too: The joke is really on us all.



Good job!

To the editor: Here is a big “thank you” to all of the dedicated public employees who braved nasty weather to continue to provide the services we have come to take for granted. The City of Lawrence sanitation workers ran the routes despite bone-chilling winds, cold and snow. I am certain private enterprise would have told us, “Sorry, but we’ll catch you next time.” Lawrence’s emergency personnel — police, fire, and emergency medical personnel — performed their duties admirably. The weather provided yet another hazard in their already perilous jobs. Our water supply and wastewater operators continued their hard work to make certain we had safe water and sanitary sewer service. They may not have the most glamorous jobs in the city, but remember them the next time you get a drink of water or shower. The medical personnel at Lawrence Memorial Hospital and Watkins Health Center were there to treat our sprained backs and egos following our falls on the icy streets and parking lots. Never mind the fact they were also there to save our lives, if circumstances demanded. The fact is we are reliant upon these people. Thank you for doing your job so well. — Leonard Pitts Jr., is a columnist for Bob Moody and the Miami Herald. He chats with readers Patsy Moody, from noon to 1 p.m. CST each Wednesday Lawrence on

Film spurs thoughts on meaning of life Lee Siegel, a New York columnist, recently criticized the Coen Brothers’ film “True Grit” for expressing the post-modern view that life is meaningless. He compares it to the original John Wayne version in which “vital characters apply their will to the world” and have meaningful connections with other human beings. By implication, Siegel ratifies the belief that actions have consequences and that justice will ultimately prevail. The appealing thing about Siegel, a self-proclaimed liberal, is that he is capable of questioning his own orthodoxy and considering other points of view. He’s at his best when he attacks left-wing pieties and prejudices just as a writer like George Will is at his best when he attacks his own conservative base. Siegel’s criticism of the new “True Grit,” in fact, sounds almost like a conservative polemic against “moral relativism” and a pitch for traditional values. Siegel implies that the “life is meaningless” conceit is of recent vintage, but of course it’s been around for a long time. Shakespeare memorably called life “a tale told by an idiot full of sound and fury signifying nothing.” You can’t get more pessimistic than that. It is true that contemporary arts have made a fetish of incoherence and senselessness, justified because life is meaningless. Gratuitous violence, anti-heroes and evil geniuses who aspire to rule the world for no particular reason have become clichés in movies these days.

George Gurley The miracle is that the “chaos and madness

reported on the daily news hasn’t turned humanity into a species of criminals and libertines or driven us into mass despair.” Actually, life really does appear to be meaningless — as well as “solitary, poor, nasty, brutish and short.” The existentialists elevated this insight into a concept: “The Absurd.” The horrors of 20th Century wars encouraged suspicions of an indifferent, amoral universe. To write poetry after the Holocaust was barbaric, someone said. Dostoevsky was obsessed with the prospects for morality in a world without religious faith. The miracle is that the chaos and madness reported on the daily news hasn’t turned humanity into a species of criminals and libertines or driven us into mass despair. People continue to pursue some kind of meaning and behave according to values, even if they don’t pay off. The

inevitability of death makes even heroic lives seem fruitless. But Sisyphus still strives to roll his boulder up the hill and poets still write poetry. The firemen who raced up the stairs of the Twin Towers in an attempt to save the lives of others must have known that they were running to their own deaths. But we revere them as heroes because they didn’t yield to the absurd. Lee Siegel calls his column “The Last Critic,” and he may be entitled to that distinction. But I think he got it wrong about “True Grit.” The Coens’ version remains true to the original vision of purpose and justice. Jeff Bridges’ portrayal of Rooster Cogburn isn’t that different from John Wayne’s. Both suggest a scoundrel with a bedrock of compassion, morality and responsibility — a jaded, prodigal hero. By the way, when Siegel embarked on a riff about the hardships we live with today I must say I laughed out loud. Contemporary Americans are “mired in joblessness, banged around by soaring health care premiums and deductibles, slaves to the distractions and importunings of our proliferating gadgets, swamped by inarticulable unease.” O, the sufferings we must endure: Standing in line, filling out forms, our entertainments interrupted by commercials and our cell phone connections dropped. You gotta be tough. Don’t lecture us about “True Grit.” — George Gurley, a resident of rural Baldwin City, writes a regular column for the Journal-World.

To the editor: Cheers to Chad Lawhorn’s Jan. 30 article detailing the late charges on Lawrence citizen Kelly Elsten’s utility bill. We, too, pay our bill through the bank, days before the due date, and upon inspection we discovered two years of charges with the vague term “adjustment.” Director of Finance Ed Mullins seems quite callous in quotes such as “it’s pretty clear to most people ‘adjustment’ means ‘late fee.’” These days, the term “adjustment” can mean a myriad of things from a rate increase to a change in the billing cycle, not to mention its ubiquitous use in today’s cable, credit card and cell phone bills. If we were to take Mr. Mullins’ advice (“if you see an adjustment, you should ask about it”), we would be on the phone (likely on hold) for most of a day. What angers me is some entity replaced “late fee” with “adjustment” and, by keeping the dollar amount low, it flies under most citizens’ radar and results in a hidden tax. It seems deceitful. Had the city utility department used the clear and concise “late fee,” we would have discovered the error years ago and corrected it then, instead of spending valuable time digging through old bills. I’m glad Mr. Lawhorn brought this to our attention. Good Work! Tom Conroy, Lawrence

Quick cleanup To the editor: We want to thank all the road crews that cleared roads after the blizzard last week. Because the main streets were so accessible, our clinical staff were able to get to their patients. It is amazing how quickly the crews got out. I know they must have been working through the night. We appreciate your efforts on behalf of the community. Judy Bellome, CEO, Douglas County Visiting Nurses & Hospice

A rising star

Guard stellar against Huskers

Tom Keegan

Shades of ’08 squad?

By Gary Bedore

LINCOLN, NEB. — Brady Morningstar has been playing so well lately, he’s starting to remind his teammates of somebody whose jersey hangs in the Allen Fieldhouse rafters. “Brady to me is playing like Kirk Hinrich,” Kansas University junior forward Marcus Morris marveled after watching senior guard Morningstar ● For more score 19 points on Kansas off 5-of-7 threeUniversity’s point shooting final trip to and dish six Lincoln, Neb., assists against including no turnovers in audio, a the Jayhawks’ photo gallery, 86-66 victory message over Nebraska boards, The on Saturday in Keegan RatDevaney Cenings and ter. more, go to “He is ing threes, getting to the basket, dishing it out. I think he’s been watching tapes of Kirk,” Morris added after scoring 16 points and grabbing seven rebounds. Actually, Morningstar — who led KU in scoring for the first time in his career and tallied his highest point total in a Big 12 game (he had 14 versus Colorado on Jan. 25 and 14 versus K-State last season) — has been watching tape of a fellow guard. But not Hinrich. “Our video coordinator (Jeff Forbes) taped a couple games of Jimmer,” Morningstar said of BYU phenom Jimmer Fredette. “I saw some of the 40-point game he had. “I’m not hopping on Jimmer’s back,” he added of copying Fredette, “but I saw how carefree he is, how much fun he has playing ball, and I think I’ve made an effort to play that way, too. To have more fun.” Morningstar admittedly has a lot more fun when his shot is falling. He has made 11 of his last 18 threes over four games after that horrid stretch in which he made two of 19.

They all described Kansas University’s 2008 national-championship team, and they all fit this year’s squad, which illustrated that in convincing fashion Saturday during a twohour clinic on how to turn ball movement into points. No Kansas player took more than eight shots from the field, and the Jayhawks defeated Nebraska, 86-66, in the first sellout at the Devaney Center since the ’08 team visited in January. That team did some things better than this one, such as defend the post and the perimeter, and score more efficiently in transition. Then again, the country, and certainly the Big 12, isn’t stocked with as much experienced talent now as three years ago. As was the case with the ’08 team, this one has seven starters. Sasha Kaun and Sherron Collins technically didn’t start, but they often finished games and looked like starters when they played. The same goes for Brady Morningstar and Thomas Robinson on this 22-1 team. Josh Selby (stress reaction, right foot) sat this one out, so naturally Morningstar, his replacement in the starting lineup, was the star of the game. Morningstar consistently fed the post and would have finished with far more than six assists had hard fouls not denied KU’s big men field goals. The ball moves when he’s on the court, and when the ball moves a post player gets a oneon-one matchup or a perimeter player gets an open shot. Nebraska made one of Morningstar’s beneficiaries earn his points at the line, and Thomas Robinson made the Huskers pay for their Hack-a-T-Rob — that really rolls off the tongue, doesn’t it? — strategy. He hit his first

Super Bowl more than just a game ————

Today’s big game ‘cultural phenomenon’ of commercialism and patriotism and, oh yeah, football By Bill Glauber

ARLINGTON, TEXAS — This is why the Super Bowl matters. It’s Patti and Roy Asmus of Rosendale, Wis., plunking down $5,000 apiece for a trip to the big game. They’re Green Bay Packers fans, with a love of team passed down through the generations. “My parents were at the Ice Bowl in 1967,” says Patti Asmus, a schoolteacher. “It seems only fitting we

would do this. It’s in our blood.” It’s Donald Driver, a veteran wide receiver for the Packers, enduring season after season, waiting for his chance to be part of the history of the Super Bowl. “As a kid, you watch them on TV and you dream about it,” he says. “So when it finally comes, you can’t let it slip away.” And it is a state fair times 50, a week-long party wrapped around a single game, a supersized version of America in all its garish, zany, contradictory and wonderful splendor. “A Super Bowl becomes a convention of Americana,” says sports agent Leigh Steinberg. “For that one week, big business, big politics, big sports, big entertainment all come together.”

SUPER BOWL XLV Who: Steelers vs. Packers When: 5 p.m. today TV: FOX (cable channels 4, 204) Line: Packers by 3 Today’s Super Bowl XLV matches the Packers against the Pittsburgh Steelers, two fabled franchises bringing to a close another season of America’s most popular and violent team game. Sure, it’s just one game, played every year. But the Super Bowl is bigger than a 60-minute contest waged by gargantuan athletes. It is our national mid-winter

festival. An anticipated 100 million people will watch the game on television sets in bars, restaurants and homes across the USA, including at the White House in Washington. Imagine: Around a third of the country’s residents sitting down to watch a single event. “That’s what makes this such a cultural phenomenon,” says Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, who will bring his son Tommy to the White House Super Bowl party. “People who don’t normally watch sporting events watch this — the commercials, too.” It is patriotic (anthems, flags and military flyovers) and commercial (the average 30-second TV ad goes for $3 million a pop and even the halftime show gets a corporate sponsor).

And it is where the haves and have-nots rarely mingle, whether at parties during the Super Bowl week buildup or at the actual game on Super Bowl Sunday. The cheapest ticket is $600 face value, and that gets a seat in the nosebleeds at Cowboys Stadium, the billion-dollar plus, saucer-shaped building that looks as if Martians landed in Texas. Others will spend thousands more at ticket brokers for a chance to claim a seat and peer down at the athletes or simply look at the gigantic television screens that hang over the field. The Super Bowl wasn’t always like this, of course. In Please see TODAY, page 2B

The Dallas Morning News

IRVING, TEXAS — Charles Woodson has been asked to do a lot of things during his NFL career. Cover, tackle, blitz. The versatile cornerback has said he doesn’t define himself by worrying about positions and titles, considering himself just a football player. But in the last few weeks, Woodson has become even more than that to the Packers. He’s become a vocal leader for the team, both before and after games. When the Packers selected captains for their postseason run — a Green Bay tradition — those captains Woodson selected Woodson to be their voice. “They pushed me out there,” said the 34-year-old, a 13-year veteran. “Mike (McCarthy) asked us how we wanted to do pregame, and the guys said, ‘Charles, you’ll do it.’ That was the end of it. I didn’t have a say in it.” Since then, he’s had a lot to say. Perhaps the most interesting speech came in Chicago two weeks ago when Woodson called out President Obama. After hearing before the NFC Championship Game that the Bears’ Fanin-Chief would attend the Super Bowl if his favorite team was able to advance, Woodson told his victorious teammates, “If he won’t come see us, we’ll go see him!” Woodson has been a stellar player for the Packers since he arrived in Green Bay in 2006, winning Defensive Player of the Year last season. But the Packers wanted more. “I felt that he had a lot more to offer as a leader,” McCarthy said. “Just to watch him in that position, it’s been special, and the football team has responded to it. He has a lot to offer. He has a big heart.” He’s also one of the few Packers with Super Bowl experience, although not all of the memories are pleasant. He was on the Raiders team that lost to the Buccaneers in Super Bowl XXXVII. “I thought we were going to win,” Woodson said. “I felt good about that day, but it didn’t happen. I just remember that feeling. I remember being out there playing. I was playing with a broken leg and thinking to myself, this is what I am here for, this is why I had the surgery, to put the plate in my leg, to have the opportunity to win a Super Bowl.” Woodson was released by the Raiders in 2004, but instead of being snatched up promptly, he had to make calls to teams around the league asking if they’d be interested in his services. Many never called back. Some offered tryouts. Only the Packers had genuine interest. “I had a bad rap,” he said. “I was a little bit of a wild child. I enjoyed myself as a young man. I guess they were tired of it. That is one of the reasons why I was out of Oakland and why nobody wanted to take a shot on me. There was talk about my game declining and not being the player that I was and that I had lost a step. All of that came into play when it came to finding another team.” He’s no longer a wild child. Now he’s a man. The man. And the voice of the Packers. “At times you’re led to speak, and you do that,” he said. “It’s something that I’m fine with. I’m comfortable doing it. It’s worked so far. It’s been good for us. Hopefully for one more time.”

DALLAS — A Wall Street superstition called the “Super Bowl predictor” yields this promise: If an old AFL team wins, the market will slump that year. If a team from the old NFL wins, stocks will go up. What this tells us about who will win today still isn’t clear, but it might explain what your broker’s been up to. Predicting a Super Bowl winner has proved almost as difficult as getting up my driveway this week. I have studied stats. Looked at trends. Consulted experts. Checked bookies. My dizzy head tells me Green Bay should win. Hotter quarterback. Better receivers. Terrific record indoors. Meanwhile, Pittsburgh won’t have its Pro Bowl center, Maurkice Pouncey. In a game projected to be as close as this one, the loss of a key position usually is enough to swing the vote. But I’m going with the Steelers, nonetheless. Shoot me. I’m a fool for big-game experience. Green Bay hasn’t played in a Super Bowl since 1998. The Steelers have won two since then, most recently in 2009. The Steelers lead in players with Super Bowl experience, 25-2. And when the rest of the Packers gather around Ryan Pickett and Charles Woodson to glean wisdom from their Super Bowl days, all they’ll be able to say is, “What do we know? We both lost.” Let us not underestimate what it means to hold such a huge edge in experience in the sport’s biggest game. In Super Bowl matchups where one team had more appearances than the other, the team with the advantage in experience is 27-11. Every once in a while, teams overcome their lack of history. Just last year, in fact, when New Orleans beat Indianapolis. There’s more to it than just a statistical advantage. A player can never be sure how he’ll perform until he’s done it. Aaron Rodgers may well play as crisply as he has since he came back from his second concussion of the season. His passer rating of 109.2 leads the postseason. But what if he isn’t up to it? What if the Steelers’ violent defense, which is giving up 80 fewer yards a game than the Packers in the playoffs, upsets his timing? Can the Packers recover from that? They barely held off the Bears, who were working on their third quarterback of the day. The Steelers know what they can do when their quarterback isn’t at his best. Ben Roethlisberger won his first Super Bowl with a passer rating of 34. He won then because of the players around him. He might be able to do it again. The Steelers’ defense is as good as ever, and their power running game, led by Rashard Mendenhall, can wear down a clock and a defense. And if Big Ben plays like he usually does in big games — extending plays, seeing downfield, making clutch throws — he can be the difference. A Super Bowl win today would be his third. Only Joe Montana and Terry Bradshaw have won more, with four apiece. A third would tie Roethlisberger with Troy Aikman and Tom Brady. Going into the game, those five quarterbacks are a combined 16-1 in Super Bowls. Come tonight, that record should only get better.

TV viewer’s guide to Super Bowl By Neil Best Newsday

The Super Bowl and “Glee” are two of the biggest attractions on Fox’s schedule, but … let’s just say their target audiences have limited overlap. Sort of like the crossover between fans of Ray Lewis and Barbra Streisand. No matter, Fox will use the coveted post-Super Bowl launching pad to unveil a gridiron-themed “Glee” episode featuring a mashup of “Thriller” and “Heads Will Roll” set on a football field. Hmm. Katie Couric makes a guest appearance. No word on a Lewis/Streisand duet. Will Fox hound press prez? Obama, O’Reilly, Oh Yes! That’s the not-so-subtle promo Fox has used for the 3:30 p.m. pregame sitdown featuring President Obama and Fox News star Bill O’Reilly. Should be interesting, at least more so than Obama’s previous Super Sunday chats with Matt Lauer and Couric. Why is Fox going with an opinionated commentator rather than one of its news anchors? “I believe Bill is going to do a different job with the interview and take a different tangent than Matt and Katie took,” producer Scott Ackerson said. For the first time since Janet Jackson’s 2004 wardrobe malfunction, the Super Bowl halftime show stars performers born in the past half-century. It’s true. Not only were The Black Eyed Peas all born after the

AFL was founded in 1960, they came along several years after the 1970 merger with the NFL! And unlike three of the past six acts, the Peas are American, which means they like pro football. It’s a law, right? Fergie even owns a small piece of the Dolphins. Speaking of Fergie, she will be the first woman featured on the halftime stage since Jackson. “It is a challenge because you want to give a little sex appeal,” she said. “But you don’t want to get into any trouble ... There will be no more malfunctions, and I think Janet’s amazing. She’s a great performer.” The big off-field news in the NFL is the tenuous labor situation, with a lockout looming next month. So does Fox plan to discuss that subject during the game telecast? Short answer: no. Fox’s pregame will include redcarpet interviews with celebs conducted between 1:30 and 3:30 by Maria Menounos and Michael Strahan, who was playing in the game the last time Fox televised it. Other pregame Fox features include a segment produced by TMZ at 2:30 p.m., Terry Bradshaw’s chat with Ben Roethlisberger at 4:30 and a reading of the Declaration of Independence at 4:53. ESPN will be at it from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., including visits from Adam Sandler, Jennifer Aniston and Snoop Dogg, and a feature on William Perry. The NFL Network kicks off its 1 pregame at 8 a.m., a mere 9 ⁄2 hours before game time. Make sure you have plenty of chips and root beer!

fact, it wasn’t even called the Super Bowl the first time the teams from the old American Football League and National Football League played for a title. The Packers beat the Kansas City Chiefs in 1967 in Los Angeles. The stadium wasn’t filled. The Super Bowl name and the Roman numerals came later. “I think my father initially saw it as a championship game,” says Clark Hunt, chairman of the board of the Kansas City Chiefs. Hunt’s father, Lamar, helped found the AFL and spearheaded the pro football merger that created the single NFL. And his mother has attended every Super Bowl. Hunt says the Super Bowl has grown in popularity for a variety of reasons. Every team and its fans can dream of getting there. The NFL is built on competitive parity. The NFL is the ideal TV sport. Building drama, exciting plays, natural timeouts for commercials.

“With the advent of high-definition TVs, that has increased the experience of watching football on TV,” Hunt says. The Super Bowl was big 20 years ago. It’s even bigger today. “It has grown, it has turned into an unofficial national holiday,” Hunt says. The Super Bowl is “part of American civil religion,” says Joseph L. Price, a religious studies professor at Whittier College. “The Super Bowl is a pilgrimage site (for sports fans), like Mecca or Jerusalem,” he says. Everyone knows a year ahead of time when and where the game will be played. People want to be there — politicians, business leaders, actors and actresses, even players from other teams eliminated along the way. “It’s in the bleak mid-winter,” Price says, a time when Americans need a little escape from the weather and bills that may have piled up after Christmas.

Kansas clubs Cyclones J-W Staff Reports

Kansas University’s swimming and diving team won 15 of 16 overall events and cruised by Iowa State, 195-99, on Saturday in the two-day dual meet at Robinson Natatorium. The Jayhawks took seven of eight events from the Cyclones on Saturday. Kansas improved to 10-5 in dual competition, including 2-1 against Big 12 foes. Saturday was KU’s senior meet. The Jayhawks honored five seniors (Joy Bunting, Iuliia Kuzhil, Amanda Maez, Alyssa Potter, Brittany Potter). “I’ve been coaching for 18 years, and this is one of the best senior classes I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with,” Kansas coach Clark Campbell said. “All five of them brought something unique to the program to make it a lot better.”

KU suffers 7th Big 12 loss J-W Staff Reports

A U S T I N , T E X A S — An unselfish performance by Angel Goodrich couldn’t propel the Kansas University women’s basketball team over Texas in an 80-68 setback on Saturday at the Erwin Center. Goodrich, a Kansas sophomore, dished out 14 assists, a career high and the secondhighest single-game total in KU women’s basketball history. The impressive total was overshadowed, however, by KU’s seventh loss in Big 12 Conference play. The Jayhawks fell to 15-8 overall and 2-7 in the conference. KU has lost six of its last seven contests. Texas improved to 14-7 and 4-4. The Longhorns were particularly effective on the glass, outrebounding the Jayhawks, 44-33. Texas also visited the foul line twice as many times as Kansas. UT converted 18 of 24 charities. Goodrich’s 14 assists were the most by a Kansas player in a single game since Erica Hallman tallied 13 against

Dartmouth on Dec. 30, 2004. The 14 assists were also the most by a Big 12 player this season. KU sophomore Carolyn Davis turned in a team-high 18 points and six rebounds. Aishah Sutherland also brought in six boards and scored 12 points. Monica Engelman added 10 points, and Marisha Brown pitched in nine. Texas’ Chassidy Fussell led all scorers with 25 points and seven rebounds. Yvonne Anderson and Kathleen Nash rounded out the Texas offensive leaders with 14 and 12 points, respectively. KU led early, 13-7, but couldn’t hold it. Texas led, 37-28, at halftime and never trailed again. Kansas will play host to No. 22 Iowa State (16-6, 4-4) at 7 p.m. Wednesday at Allen Fieldhouse. Iowa State fell to Oklahoma, 65-62, on Saturday in Norman, Okla. The Sooners are No. 13 in the country and 17-5 (7-2 Big 12) this season. After Iowa State, the Jayhawks will travel to No. 6 Texas A&M (19-2, 7-1) next Saturday.

City squads upstaged by SM East again ————

Free State takes fourth place, while Lawrence High finishes sixth at LHS pool By Ben Ward Journal-World Sports Writer

Once again at the Sunflower League swimming finals, neither the Free State High nor Lawrence High boys teams could keep pace with either school with “East” in its title. Shawnee Mission East, the defending Class 6A state champion, captured its eighth straight league title by edging Olathe East and celebrated in front of a large crowd of supporters Saturday afternoon at the LHS pool. That aside, the Firebirds, who f inished fourth (156 points), and the Lions, who finished sixth (79 points), each fared well. “We finished where I was hoping we would,” LHS coach Kent McDonald said. With a fifth-place finish by Nathan Evers, Dylan Orth, Carrick Finnegan and Zach Andregg in the day’s final event — the 400 freestyle relay — the Lions were able to reach the mark set by McDonald. “A lot of people stepped up,” Andregg said. “I was really impressed with our relays.” The Firebirds, on the other hand, had little chance to catch up to third-place Olathe Northwest despite a solid allaround day. “The guys wanted to be third in a lot of places, and fourth really hurts sometimes,” FSHS coach Annette McDonald said. “They gave it their heart, and they gave it their best. I’m really proud of their performance.”

Andregg, who emerged as league champion in the 100 freestyle with a time of 49.11, was the only city athlete to capture a first-place finish. “I was feeling better than I was yesterday (at preliminaries),” said Andregg, who also finished second (2:01.57) in the 200 individual medley. “Yesterday was rough.” Andregg praised his teammate, sophomore Adam Edmonds, on qualifying for state in the 100 backstroke with his seventh-place finish at 59.30. “I think we ended up on a high note,” Kent McDonald said. “So we’re ready to go back into state and improve there, too.” Senior Nolan Frank had a strong all-around day for the Firebirds, finishing third in the 100 backstroke and sixth in the 200 freestyle. In addition, Frank helped guide the FSHS 200 medley relay (with Logan Sloan, Ben Sloan, Canaan Campbell) and 400 freestyle relay (with Ben Sloan, Campbell and Ethan Fisher) teams to fourth-place finishes. “The fact that we can come up here and compete with everyone, and do as well as we did really makes me proud,” Frank said. Fisher also placed fourth in the 200 freestyle and fifth in the 500 freestyle for FSHS, while Ben Sloan placed second in the 100 butterfly and fourth in the 200 individual medley. Campbell, only a freshman, placed third in the 500 freestyle.

With more turnovers than points Saturday against Basehor-Linwood High, the Tonganoxie girls basketball team squandered an eightpoint halftime lead at home and lost, 35-30. Passes flew out of bounds, dribbles were lost, and the Chieftains turned the ball over 31 times. The mistakes severely cost THS (5-8 overall, 2-5 Kaw Valley League) in the second half, when the home team made just three field goals and the Bobcats (9-4, 6-1) limited Tonganoxie to 10 points. BLHS trailed for the first 27 minutes. It wasn’t until Shelby Equels converted a fastbreak layup with 4:07 left that the Bobcats finally managed a tie. Thirteen seconds later, Jamie Johnson scored a tran-

sition layup to put Basehor ahead, 29-27, and the Bobcats maintained their lead throughout the final few minutes by shooting 6-for-9 from the foul line. Tonganoxie, meanwhile, was mired in a fourth-quarter field-goal drought that lasted nearly six minutes. The Chieftains will play Tuesday at Mill Valley.

Finley sets meet record in shot put NEW YORK — Kansas University sophomore Mason Finley set a New Balance Collegiate Invitational record in the shot put with a throw of 20.40 meters (66-11.25 feet) on Saturday at the Armory Track and Field Center. Finley, who won the event, was honored with the Male Athlete of the Meet for the performance. Six Jayhawks finished in the top five of their individual events, while 12 set personal or team bests. On the women’s side, senior Amanda Miller ran a 9:46.11 in the 3,000 meters, earning second place. The time was Miller’s career best. KU junior Cori Christensen set a seasonbest mark of 2:11.97 in the 800 meters, good for third place. Kansas will be in action next weekend with several members traveling to Ames, Iowa, for the ISU Classic, and others going to Fayetteville, Ark., for the Tyson Invitational.

Huskers awed by KU’s offensive show By Jesse Newell

LINCOLN , N EB . — Nebraska coach Doc Sadler wasn’t upset with his team’s defense following NU’s 86-66 loss to Kansas University on Saturday afternoon. Instead, he was left awed by the Jayhawks’ offense. “I thought the first half, that was about as good an offensive performance that I’ve coached against,” the

defensive-minded Sadler said. Not only did KU make 25 of 45 field goals (55.6 percent) against NU, it also made 13 of 24 threes (54.2 percent). “We could play them 10 times,” Sadler said, “and if they played as well as they played today, we’d have a hard time beating them.” The Jayhawks’ offensive outburst was even more impressive considering it came against a stingy Huskers defense.

Before Saturday, NU had held every opponent under its season average for points (KU’s season average was 82.7 points per game). Also, the Huskers hadn’t allowed any team to score 70 points on them at home this season. “They deserved to win, because we played our heart out,” NU guard Lance Jeter said. “I feel like we played good D. It’s just they would not miss tonight.”

Coming in, opponents had made just 36.5 percent of their field goals against NU. The Huskers also had allowed just 56.5 points per game overall and 53 points per game at home. “There’s not many times I’ve given up 86 points on a team,” Sadler said, “but I don’t know, I thought our guys played defense about as well as we could play.” Sadler said he had noticed that in the Jayhawks’ games

against both Texas and Texas Tech, they had shot well in the first half before cooling off some in the second half. “I just never thought they’d continue to make shots,” Sadler said. Instead, KU followed up a 55.6-percent shooting effort in the first half (15 of 27) with a 55.6-percent shooting effort in the second half (10 of 18). “It’s hard to beat a team who is hitting everything almost,” NU guard Brandon

Richardson said. “ ... We just caught them on a bad day.” Sadler actually was pleased with some of his team’s statistics. NU committed only 13 turnovers and also shot well above its season average from three-point range (7-for-20, 35 percent). Still, the coach said it didn’t matter because of the Jayhawks’ effort. “They were just too good today,” Sadler said. “They were just too good.”

BRADY MORNINGSTAR, CENTER, IS CONGRATULATED by Josh Selby, right, at the end of the second half. Morningstar started in place of the ailing Selby.

KU NOTEBOOK Selby hurting Kansas University freshman guard Josh Selby, who sprained his ankle against Kansas State on Jan. 29, has a stress reaction in his right foot. He dressed for the game and ran through warmup drills, but didn’t play Saturday at Nebraska. “There’s no line (break), no fracture, no nothing,” KU coach Bill Self said, “but it is in a spot that’s potentially dangerous. If he rolled his ankle, it could maybe become a stress-type fracture. We didn’t want to chance it. He could have played. He is tender. I don’t know if he’ll be available Monday or not (for Missouri, 8 p.m., Allen Fieldhouse). The doctors don’t believe it’ll be more than a few more days (he’ll have such discomfort).” Tigers ‘scrappy’ Marcus Morris realizes playing Missouri, a team that likes to press, will be challenging Monday. He provided quite a colorful quote when describing the Tigers. “Scrappy,” he said. “They are like little gnats that won’t get out of your kitchen when you leave the dishes out a long time. They don’t leave you alone. (But) I can’t see a team trapping for 40 minutes and us not getting better at it and we breaking their trap.”

Perhaps Morningstar’s performance in his final game in Lincoln was fate. Believe it or not, his dad, Roger, scored an identical 19 points in KU’s 7444 victory over NU on Feb. 5, 1975. That game, however, was in Allen Fieldhouse. “The same date and every-

Diaz and KU’s Marcus Morris were assessed double technicals for the dust-up. thing,” Brady said. “That’s funny. That’s cool.” Most cool for the Jayhawks was not only winning their 17th straight over NU and seventh straight in Lincoln, but playing much better than against the Huskers in Lawrence on Jan. 15. KU won, 63-60, in a game in which the Jayhawks trailed by 10 in the second half. This time, KU opened to a 20-10 lead in the first seven minutes, then used a 10-2 run to stretch a 32-30 lead to 10points with a minute left in the half. The Jayhawks put this one away courtesy of a 15-3 run that stretched a 60-54 lead (10:07 left) to 75-57 with 5:18 remaining. Marcus Morris and Morningstar had five each in the run. “In a strange way the first game helped us today

because, and our guys know this, they controlled the game,” Self said. “Nebraska controlled that game for 25 minutes, and they were the far superior team in our building. I think there was not fear but a respect standpoint where we knew they could beat us if we didn’t give great effort. The f irst game was good preparation for this game. Offensively, that’s as good as we can execute.” KU, which snapped NU’s 14-game homecourt win streak, became the first team to score 70 points against NU in Lincoln this season. Morningstar is happy the Jayhawks left Lincoln winners. “I love coming here,” he said. “I love playing here, but we won’t be coming back. It’s good to get the last win in here.”

KANSAS’ BRADY MORNINGSTAR — ALL 185 POUNDS OF HIM — jockeys for position with 310pound Nebraska man mountain Andre Almeida, left, during a first-half free-throw attempt. Almeida held his ground, but Morningstar managed a season-best 19 points in KU’s 86-66 victory Saturday in Lincoln, Neb.

six free-throw attempts, before missing his final two. Marcus and Markieff Morris totaled just five fouls between them, so Robinson was needed for just 16 minutes in this one, and he certainly made the most of them with eight points, six rebounds, a steal and a blocked shot. One of his first-half free throws went in off the backboard to keep alive a streak of made free throws that reached 11. “I was on a real hot streak,” Robinson said with the grin that dominates his face. “I don’t have anything I’m doing different. I’m just getting more consistent with it.” A .395 free-throw shooter during his freshman season, Robinson is shooting .528 from the line this season. It’s still not a strength and is just one of many areas where he has improved, so much so that he’s averaging 15.4 minutes per game backing up Marcus and Markieff Morris, compared to 7.2 minutes as a freshman. He and Morningstar are the main reasons that either foul trouble or an injury to a starter doesn’t erode the team’s considerable confidence. “It’d be hard to lose Marcus or Markieff ... ” Kansas coach Bill Self said. “The way Thomas is playing now gives you more confidence that if one of those guys were to get in foul trouble or whatever, it wouldn’t be that big of a deal.” Playing so well without Selby against the Cornhuskers proved the quality of the back-court depth. “Certainly on the perime-

These guys were highly recruited guys. Some of them don’t get their opportunities as often, but when they do get that opportunity, you have to make the most of it. I really don’t expect

much of a drop-off, even though I know our best players have to play. I think we have a bunch of best players.” And Saturday, not one of those “best players” attempted more than eight field goals for a team that scored 86 points.

After affair, couple need to commit to saving marriage Dear Annie: My wife and I have been married for 21 years. We hit a low note in our marriage, and she met an old friend on Facebook. The two of them texted and called each other, met for dinner, got together again and hopped in the sack, and then saw each other once more to talk and kiss. I found her texts and phone calls. We have been to a marriage counselor, and my wife wants to work it out. We have three teenage children, and I am trying to stay together for them. My wife says she hates what she did, is sorry and cannot believe she got caught up in this type of behavior. I still have a difficult time trusting her and accepting her betrayal. We met when we were teenagers, and I feel we’ve grown apart. I am no longer happy. Should I work it out and stay for the kids’ sake? We were pretty close before this and did most things together as a family. — Not Sure What To Do Dear Not Sure: It is difficult to regain trust when a partner has cheated, but it is not impossible. It takes time, willingness and complete transparency on your wife’s part. She, too, could have felt you were growing apart when she succumbed to the affair. It does not justify her behavior,

want them to, but they probably have no reason to do so. Here are a few rules I live by: 1. I have no control over anyone but me. 2. I raised my children the best way I knew. They are who I helped them become. I did what I could and don’t feel guilty about things they do. 3. If anyone annoys me with their gross habits, poor hygiene, rudeness or stupidity, I have the freedom to stay away from them. Life is too short (and too but it may help you underlong) to make pettiness and stand her dissatisfaction. When both partners com- drama your regular routine. If mit to saving the marriage and take the necessary steps to reconnect, revitalize and remember what brought them together, the relationship can actually become stronger. We hope you will continue with counseling to see if you can do this, not only for your children’s sake, but for your own.

Sunday brings bowls for NFL, puppies and toilets The Steelers and the Green Bay Packers meet in Super Bowl XLV (5 p.m., Fox). That’s 45 to the rest of us. Much has been made of the fact that this game will be played in Arlington, Texas, at the new home of the Dallas Cowboys, a team tormented by both the Packers and Steelers over the years. The game can be enjoyed as football, as a carnival of commercials and as a ratings superlative. Many of the most watched events in TV history have been Super Bowl games. And this season, the ratings for NFL events have been among the few bright spots for network television. Hanging over this event is the prospect of negotiations between the players and management and the vague fear that next season could be delayed or not happen at all. But for one last evening, football is king in a mid-winter classic that has become a kind of corporate Mardi Gras, and in its own way, a harbinger of warmer days to come, or at least spring-training baseball games. ● A special episode of “Glee” (about 9:30 p.m., Fox) airs directly after the postgame festivities. Appropriate to the night, the show involves an attempt to bring football and glee club cliques closer together. Networks have long showcased their most promising series right after the big game in the hopes of turning a hit into a blockbuster. But I can’t help feeling that “Glee” has already reached its potential market and that creatively, the series may have peaked. A dead giveaway that a show, particularly a comedy, has run out of ideas is when it resorts to famous guest stars and stunt casting. You knew it was time to hang crepe for “Will & Grace” when Cher showed up. Gwyneth Paltrow on “Glee” gave me a similar feeling. ● If the big game is on, then “Puppy Bowl VII” (2 p.m., Animal Planet) is at hand. Or at paw, if you will. In a “Puppy Bowl” first and in an attempt to cram even more cuteness into a “stadium” of clumsy puppies, the “stands” will be filled with baby chicks and chicken cheerleaders. Television at its finest. ● DIY uses the occasion to air 17 hours of home-renovation projects centered around the bathroom with its annual “Toilet Bowl” (6 a.m., DIY). May the best grouter win. ● PBS commemorates President Ronald Reagan’s 100th birthday with “Nancy Reagan: The Role of a Lifetime” (9 p.m., PBS, check local listings), a profile of the woman who some have argued may be one of the most influential first ladies in the history of the presidency. Judy Woodruff interviews Nancy Reagan, who discusses their courtship and her role advising Reagan as both California’s governor and as president.

Today’s highlights ● “Masterpiece” (8 p.m., PBS, check local listings) repeats “The Unseen Alistair Cooke,” a profile of the journalist and longtime “Masterpiece Theatre” host. ● Anti-polygamy rallies cloud Bill’s inaugural plans on “Big Love” (8 p.m., HBO). ● Sean’s eyes wander on “Episodes” (8:30 p.m., Showtime). ● The mayor’s speech seems to put the police director on the spot on “Brick City” (9 p.m., Sundance).

K-State edges Iowa State ————

Baylor knocks off A&M; Mizzou, Texas roll The Associated Press

Kansas State 86, Iowa State 85 AMES, IOWA — Down one with the ball and the shot clock turned off, Kansas State coach Frank Martin called a play his team hadn’t run all year. Predictably, the Wildcats didn’t execute the way Martin drew it up. But as he’s done so often in his brilliant career, Jacob Pullen was there to bail them out. Pullen sliced through traffic for a layup with 2.6 seconds left, and Kansas State rallied for its first Big 12 road win. Pullen scored 17 of his 21 points in the second half to lead the Wildcats (16-8, 4-5 Big 12), who’ve won two straight following a humbling 90-66 loss at rival Kansas last weekend. Pullen nearly lost the ball before tossing a one-hander off the glass, capping a stellar clutch performance from Kansas State’s senior leader. “Jacob did what good players do, they make a play. It’s not always the X and the O. It’s sometimes the player within the X and the O that makes a play that makes the difference,” Martin said. Pullen brought the Wildcats within 81-80 with 2:20 left, and his three with 53 seconds left cut the Cyclones’ lead to 85-84. Diante Garrett then missed a layup, giving KSU one more chance to put the ball in Pullen’s hands. “A lot of times we get down on the road, and we panic and take bad shots. Just wanted to settle down and take the shots that were given to me,” Pullen said. “It was a win that we needed — a win that we needed a lot.” Iowa State’s Jamie Vanderbeken, who drilled a long turnaround three at the buzzer to beat Creighton earlier this season, missed a similar shot at the buzzer. Garrett had 23 points, Scott Christopherson added 22, and Vanderbeken had 18 for Iowa State (14-10, 1-8), which has lost two Big 12 games in overtime and two others by a point in the final seconds. “I was proud of them for their effort (Saturday), for fighting all game to give us a chance. We made big plays. Diante was outstanding; Scott made big shots,” Iowa State coach Fred Hoiberg said. “We gave ourselves a chance, and that’s what you have to do. The ball just didn’t bounce our way at the end.” KANSAS ST.

KANSAS STATE’S JACOB PULLEN, RIGHT, PASSES THE BALL around Iowa State’s Bubu Palo during the first half. The Wildcats won, 86-85, on Saturday in Ames, Iowa. Texas remained unbeaten in the Big 12. The Red Raiders kept this one closer than Texas’ 31point romp the last time the teams met on Jan. 11, cutting the Longhorns’ lead to seven in the second half. But J’Covan Brown made two threepointers in a 90-second span to help end the rally and give the Longhorns the push to put the game away. Brown f inished with 10 points for Texas (20-3, 8-0), which is off to its best-ever start in the Big 12.

What were you doing when you were scouted? Shoveling my way out of hibernation. How would you describe your style? Muted and muffled. I put less thought into my wardrobe than most men and all women I know. I try to blend in without being totally tasteless. And I let other people dress me.

NATALIE LICCARDELLO, Kansas City, Mo., appears in a scene from “Dead Man’s Cell Phone.” The production marks the debut of the Lawrence Arts Center’s refurbished black box theater and the new professional theater company.

What are your favorite fashion trends? I like it when people dress appropriately for their environment, but that’s probably not a trend. I suppose I like beards, boots and booties. CLOTHING DETAILS:

What would you like to see more of in Lawrence? People outdoors — climbing, biking, swimming, dancing, gardening — and more fun people around my age. But this is a pretty great place, isn’t it? What would you like to see less of in Lawrence? Folks sitting around in bars. Also less barriers for young and small-scale farmers.

I’ll also admit I have an affinity for thermal and flannel shirts. I don’t think that’ll ever change. I’ll be that guy five years from now still wearing flannels while everyone else is wearing some cashmere/polo/denim/flannel-hybrid thing. What are your least favorite fashion trends? Thanks to a friend I now know there is such a thing as pajama jeans — really? That would have to be at the top of my list. CLOTHING DETAILS: What would you like to see more of in Lawrence?

Performers meld chamber, hip-hop music

By Michael Auchard

The members of Black Violin, Kev Marcus and Wil B, met when they were students at Dillard High School of Performing Arts in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. In some ways they were like all the other kids. They listened to hip-hop, and they dressed cool. But they also played viola and violin in the school orchestra. And they loved classical music. “We were unique kids, living in two worlds,” Wil B says. Wil B says he’s BLACK VIOLIN always been fascinated by the lives When: 7:30 p.m. Tuesday of composers.

Nearly everybody can relate to a story about bad cell phone etiquette. It’s a theme as ubiquitous as it is annoying: Some inconsiderate person forgets to shut his or her cellular device off and annoys an entire room of innocent bystanders. The telephonic transgressor usually makes belated amends and then sheepishly turns the offending ringer off as quickly as possible. But what if the person couldn’t turn it off? What if that person was dead? This is the setting of the “Dead Man’s Cell Phone,” a play by Sarah Ruhl that opened this weekend at the Lawrence Art Center’s new black box theater. As the play opens, a woman, Jean, is drawn into a man’s surprisingly twisted life when she approaches him at a restaurant after his repetitive ringing drives her to distraction. Lawrence actress Kitty Steffens, who plays Jean in the production, says her character is rapidly sucked into a strange world of discovery as she finds out about the deceased title character’s life and business dealings through the contacts in his cell phone. “She sets out on a journey and finds out who he really is through the eyes of his wife, brother, mother, and co-workers until finally falling in love with his brother,” Steffens says. “It’s a very beautiful and surreal dark comedy.” Steffens calls the play a comedy with adult themes, something she says is a change to the Lawrence Arts Center’s productions. “So much of the theater produced by the Arts Center in the past has been for children or for families,” Steffens says. “While there’s nothing particularly explicit about this, it deals with adults and death and loving, and a little bit of sexuality. While it’s not horribly graphic, it definitely deals with some themes concerning love and death that aren’t for kids.” Drama Program Director Ric Averill says the Lawrence Arts Center is making a conscious decision to produce more works for adults, even going as far as assembling a new professional theater company. “One of the things we wanted to do,” Averill says, “is be the place for all ages and stages of life. One of the places we haven’t had as much programming for is young adults. Of course, I’ve always had a lot of plays I’ve wanted to do in Lawrence with adults. We’ve talked about creating a regional theater that is strong, pays its actors, and does interesting and challenging works. It’s our desire to have an experimental, newworks-oriented, fun adult and profes-

sional theater that does work a lot of people wouldn’t see otherwise.” With these goals in mind, the Lawrence Arts Center is unveiling its newly remodeled black box theater, a space, Averill says, for “fun, edgier theater. “It’s been completely refurbished in terms of curtains and paint jobs and sets,” he says. “We’ve changed the space and configuration of the space — in this case, the theater is all around you and the audience is kind of thrust into the middle of it. It’s a very intimate setting. We’re going to use it that way more and more often.” Executive Director Susan Tate says this new space will allow for a variety of theatrical activities. “We’re looking to curate a season of theater by emerging playwrights suitable for a small and experimental space,” she says. Tate says the theater has been adorned with installation art from one of the arts center’s artists in residence, Nicolette Ross. Sculptures made of vellum and paper will hang in the theater. “We are actively seeking the best in performance art and installation art, visual art and sometimes — as in the case of ‘Dead Man’s Cell Phone,’ installation and performance art come together,” she says.

For Amos Lee, being a musician means listening to others and collaborating. It means learning the nuances of various musical styles and adapting them to mesh with his own. “I’ll listen to anything,” Lee says. “I’m voracious in what I like and what I’m AMOS LEE WITH interested in.

Photographers can anticipate good action shot By Mike Yoder

A news photographer has many tricks and techniques to help capture better images. These are not unique trade secrets special only to photojournalists. They’re more like good habits that we practice so often they become routine in our everyday photography work. Any photographer has access to these tricks. So I won’t be giving away magician’s secrets by revealing one technique that might assist you in your photography. I’ll call this practice the art of repetitive action. Predictability is a good thing when it comes to taking pictures. Since many events have actions that are repetitive, any photographer can become a fortune teller and begin predicting photographs. Let’s use sledding as an example. When I take to the slopes with my camera, I

BY OBSERVING SLEDDERS aiming for a bump in the snow that sent them sailing into the air, I was able to anticipate a photographic situation. After selecting an appropriate location and framing and focusing my camera, I was able to predict a photographic outcome based on the sledders repetitive actions. Noah Koppes, 13, was sledding Jan. 20 on the KU campus. know that I will be observing repetitive action. There may be a whole hillside of people, but everyone of them will be repeating the

same action. Specifically, I’ll look for areas where sledders have created an obstacle or ski-bump that sends them flying into the air each

time they pass. I establish a location, downhill from the obstacle, and I simply frame and focus on the area just past the bump. As sledders hit the obstacle and sail into my frame, I take my photographs. This eliminates guesswork and avoids chasing after random action. I can remain in one spot for multiple sledders and anticipate action knowing I’ll get predictable results. Once you begin to think about all the events and subjects with repeatable actions, you’ll probably be surprised at how simple this type of photography can be. Children on merry-gorounds, bicyclists on a race course and barrel-racing horseback riders are just a few that come to mind. Just this week I used the technique to catch people climbing over a large snow pile in the middle of Massachusetts Street. Realizing that they had nowhere to go but over

the top of the pile to cross the street, I positioned myself on the snow pile in the middle of the block. As pedestrians repeatedly approached the pile to climb over, I was ready to frame them with my camera. Tips to capturing repeatable action: ● Find a suitable location where you can remain in place to witness the repeatable action. ● Pre-focus on a spot that subjects will cross or enter during the activity. ● If you position yourself so action moves across your field of view, you’ll have an easier time of following the subject for more shots. If the subject is moving toward you, find a location to prefocus on that the subject will pass through and be prepared as he or she enters the frame. — Chief Photographer Mike Yoder can be reached at 832-7141.

Tupac. But it wasn’t until they both went to college, Wil B to Florida State University and Marcus to Florida International, that they started to, as Wil B says, “put it together.” What sparked the fusion was an album that a professor played for Marcus. “He said, ‘Put your instrument away. I want to give you this tape,’” Marcus said in a recent interview with City Link Magazine. “And he gave me this tape which was unbelievable — classical violin with soul and fire. I loved it. I listened to the album all the time trying to figure out how

We’re doing something that’s never been done before. When you come to our show, expect to see something you’ve never seen before or experienced.

The album was called Black Violin, and it was by Stuff Smith.” Smith was a jazz violinist during the swing era.

Marcus shared it with Wil B, and they decided to form a band and call it Black Violin. They began performing in clubs around Miami. Then they sent a tape to the legendary Apollo Theater in Harlem. Two years later, they got the call. The show in New York was an overwhelming success. “That’s when we realized we had something special,” Wil B says. “The Apollo has one of the toughest crowds anywhere.” Since then, the band’s trajectory has been strictly upward. They’ve toured the world, including a stint performing for soldiers in Iraq. And they’ve received props

“The whole recording process was a good story, from beginning to end,” Lee says. “It was pretty focused — as focused as I can be. The environment was very freeing, and it was really great. There was tons of old gear, tons of old keyboards and guitars. You don’t feel at any point that you can’t do it.” Lee says the writing process, with Calexico, was slower with than usual on Mission Bell, but rewarding in the end. “Once we had songs, I decided it was just going to be what it was,” he says. “Here’s

a song, let’s go in with the idea of serving these songs and getting the most out of them that we can. It was an adventure playing music.” The inspiration for Lee’s work comes from internal and external sources, he says. “There are a lot of personal stories there, but there’s also a lot taken from the experiences I see in others,” he says. “I feel like the best songs I’ve written are very autobiographical, but at the same time, very detached. There’s a sort of synthesis that happens there — between what you’re going through and what someone else is going

through. With art, it’s such a gift to be able to experience life through the eyes of another character.” What he does want to get across is his deep love of all things music; he desires his albums and live shows to engage the audience and make them re-examine how they look at the world. “I just want people to be able to experience the dynamic range of the songs, and I would like for the evening to be dynamic for the listener. Hopefully they can leave different than they came,” Lee says. “The goal of art is to change people and change the atmosphere.”

Here’s looking at him Book about Bogart affirms his star power By Jerry Harkavy Associated Press Writer

The so-called “Greatest Generation,” whose lives were shaped by the Depression and World War II, made up the core audience for Humphrey Bogart’s movies. But Bogart’s star power would span generations. His death in 1957 set the stage for his embrace by baby boomers, foreign audiences and other moviegoers who were captivated by his portrayals of authentic, hardbitten characters in performances that continue to withstand the test of time. The aura surrounding his work has yet to fade. A dozen years ago, the American Film Institute ranked Bogart as Hollywood’s greatest male star of all time, one Jordan Leroy Hanson, of many posthumous honors journalism major, bestowed upon him. Lawrence In “Tough Without a Gun: “’Deadspace Martyr’ by B. K. The Life and Extraordinary Evenson. It’s a prequel to the Afterlife of Humphrey Bogaoriginal game franchise. A rt,” former Time magazine guy finds a stone that turns movie critic Stefan Kanfer people into monsters.” says Bogart’s enduring success is unlikely to be eclipsed. Kanfer says teens and 20somethings have become the dominant market, whereas people of all ages went to the movies in Bogart’s pretelevision heyday. Also, Bogart achieved leading man status at 42 as Sam Spade in 1941’s “The Maltese Falcon,” followed by other adult roles such as Rick Blaine in Sarah Gelvin, “Casablanca,” Fred C. Dobbs mechanical engineering and in “The Treasure of the Sierbusiness administration ra Madre” and his Oscarmajor, winning performance as Overland Park Charlie Allnut in “The “I’m here to buy the ‘Discover African Queen.” Your Strengths’ book by Kanfer contrasts Bogart’s Marcus Buckingham and masculine appeal to that of Donald O.

IN “TOUGH WITHOUT A GUN: THE LIFE AND EXTRAORDINARY AFTERLIFE OF HUMPHREY BOGART,” formerTime magazine movie critic Stefan Kanfer says there’s not likely to be a “new Bogart.” “From time to time columnists dub some young actor the new Clark Gable, the new Jimmy Stewart, the new Marlon Brando,” Kanfer writes. “No one claims to have discovered the new Humphrey Bogart. With good reason. There was nothing like him before his entrance; there has been nothing like him since his exit.” The only son of a well-todo doctor and a renowned illustrator in New York, Bogart stumbled into acting after he had failed at other jobs and other prospects seemed dim. His formal education ended with expulsion from Phillips Andover;

he enlisted in the Navy during World War I. In one of his first roles on the New York stage in 1922, he was cast as a worthless “young sprig of the aristocracy” in a play that was widely panned. “It was here,” writes Kanfer, “that the distinctive Bogart delivery was born — the sudden rictus, the lips pulled back after a statement, the unique sibilance that sometimes made him sound tentative and boyish, and at other times gave him a vaguely malevolent air.” His big break came in 1934 when he was given the role of escaped convict Duke Mantee in Robert Sher-

wood’s Broadway hit “The Petrified Forest,” a role he would reprise two years later on the screen. Kanfer, who has written biographies of Marlon Brando, Lucille Ball and Groucho Marx, brings his knowledge of Hollywood and its ways to this entertaining book. His portrait of Bogart is replete with anecdotes drawn from scores of biographies and memoirs published after the actor’s death. The reader follows the ascent of Bogart’s career as he progresses from playing the heavy in grade-B gangster movies to his memorable performances of the 1940s and ’50s. Among them was “Casablanca,” which made him a superstar and remains the lodestar for many film buffs. Kanfer traces Bogart’s personal life, including three brief and tempestuous marriages that set the stage for his whirlwind courtship of Lauren Bacall that began during the filming of “To Have and Have Not.” Another thread in the story is how his liberal politics made him an occasional target of congressional investigators intent on exposing members of the Communist Party in Hollywood. But perhaps most unique about Bogart is the career trajectory after he died of cancer. The Brattle Theater near Harvard began running “Casablanca,” sparking a Bogart cult that extended to other college campuses. After Jean-Paul Belmondo mimicked Bogart’s mannerisms in Jean-Luc Godard’s “Breathless,” other New Wave directors began to channel the Bogart style. Years later, the Bogart mystique surfaced anew in Woody Allen’s “Play It Again, Sam.” Kanfer’s book should appeal to older Bogart enthusiasts and younger movie fans discovering him for the first time. It’s a readable and entertaining biography that reflects the author’s delight in his subject and the world in which Bogart thrived.

’Swamplandia!’ the 1st ‘must-read’ of 2011 By Mike Fischer Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Dan Kirchhefer, college professor, Topeka “’The Brothers K’ by David James Duncan, which chronicles the adventures of a family living in the northwest with an underlying theme of baseball. It’s set in the late ‘50s through the ‘70s, I think, and is roughly based on ‘The Brothers Karamazov.’”

Writer Karen Russell is on record stating that, much as she loves reading realist fiction, she couldn’t “write a moving tale about a family of struggling car salesmen in Detroit,” even if “somebody held a gun to my head.” “But a family of alligator wrestlers in a mythic swamp? That,” she continued, “I can do.” Now she has, in “Swamplandia!,” a weird and wonderfully inventive first novel that also happens to be a moving, very real tale about a struggling family. The Bigtrees aren’t car salesmen from Detroit, but

they’re facing foreclosure on their isolated island home in Florida’s Everglades once 36year-old Hilola Bigtree succumbs to ovarian cancer. She leaves behind a dazed husband and three teenagers: a boy named Kiwi and two girls, Osceola and 13-year-old Ava. Back when customers demanded less because their imaginations did more, Hilola had been the star of the Bigtrees’ alligator wrestling show held in Swamplandia!, their 100-acre throwback to carnivals from a distant past. Hilola’s death coincides

with the rise of a more conventional mainland tourist attraction: the World of Darkness, featuring a water ride through a whale’s belly where “watching people board the ride and get released down the chute was like watching an eerie factory assembly line.” The Bigtree children cope with Hilola’s death in different ways — none of them good. Hoping to raise money and save their park, the restless Kiwi gets a job in the World of Darkness, and once he arrives, half of the remaining chapters trace his

struggles to make ends meet as an underpaid refugee. The magic ingredient inducing belief is Russell’s incredibly evocative language, as thickly textured and dizzying as the mangrove swamp in which the daughters soon lose their way. Her images are often completely alien but also utterly true to the changing world of an adolescent girl, in which a once-familiar landscape continually reveals new shapes and shadows that can be alluring, haunting or both. Russell’s re-creation of that world will make it easy to forget tamer fare like the “Twilight” series. It’s “Swamplandia!” that’s the real deal — and the first must-read of 2011.

Previously unreleased Vonnegut stories recall Golden Age By Noah Homola McClatchy Newspapers

Cindy Mehojah, retired, Albuquerque, N.M. “Right now I’m reading ‘Death Comes for the Archbishop’ by Willa Cather because it’s about the Southwest and the Albuquerque area, and that’s where we’re from.”

In 1950, Kurt Vonnegut sold his first short story, “Report on the Barhouse Effect,” for $750 — the equivalent of six weeks’ pay at his public relations job at General Electric. When his second story sold for $950, he quit so he could write full time. In the second collection of Vonnegut stories put out since his death in 2007, “While Mortals Sleep,” we are given 16 previously unreleased short stories from this early period when he was making his living by publishing short f iction in magazines like Esquire and Cosmopolitan. As with “Look at the Birdie,” the previous posthumous collection, this is Vonnegut fresh out of the corporate world, hungry to establish himself as a writer.

Today’s readers play the part of an archaeologist, sifting through the pages and unearthing relics of a post-war United States that reveled in the short story. Sure, these stories feel like classic, wry and imaginative Vonnegut, but the atmosphere of a bygone era, when story took precedent over character, is what dominates. Characters walk down the story’s path, destined to its ending regardless of their action. Every event is calculated, leading up to a revelation or pronouncement that doesn’t hide behind metaphors or symbolism — something seen as banal or amateurish by today’s standards. But this device works, even in the story “Money Talks,” where, in unsur-

prising Vonnegut fashion, the titular money does indeed talk . Perhaps it’s easy to look at a 50-year-old story and just be charmed by its apparent hokeyness. A certain nostalgia might take place. But reading these Vonnegut pieces is deeper, because he provides enough substance to reassure us that we are not in the hands of a hack. Even with a direct moral that is routinely spelled out, we never feel ensnared in Vonnegut’s self-indulgences or get the sense that we are in the midst of a preachy anecdote or object lesson. Pieces like “Jenny,” in which a man uses his toes to control a robotic refrigerator shaped like a woman,

read like typical Vonnegut canon. But in other stories — “Out, Brief Candle” and “Ruth,” for example — we see a more traditional and melancholy Vonnegut, similar to a short story by Alice Munro or J.D. Salinger, respectively. Beyond the nice mixture of stories, 13 drawings by Vonnegut are placed throughout the book. Don’t be discouraged by the fluff, though. These stories celebrate the short story in its golden age. By the book’s end, you’ll want to dig up old copies of Collier’s Magazine and The Saturday Evening Post to revisit the stories of not just Vonnegut, but of Steinbeck, Bradbury and Fitzgerald. “While Mortals Sleep” is ultimately an artifact to celebrate and remind us that, with literature at least, we can do ourselves a favor by not staying current.

Roger Shimomura exhibit coming to Lawrence Arts Center `By Sean Rosner

The injustice of the World War II Japanese internment camps is not something that Lawrence artist Roger Shimomura has forgotten about over time. Shimomura, who spent time as a child with his family at Camp Minidoka in southern Idaho, has spent a large part of his artistic career reflecting on the experiences of his family and other Japanese Americans. And now he will be bringing his impressions to the Lawrence Arts Center with the exhibition “Shadows of Minidoka.” “Shadows of Minidoka” will place works from Shimomura’s “Minidoka On My Mind,” an exhibition of paintings on the internment camp experience that has been touring the country for a few years, alongside Shimomura’s personal collection of internment camp ephemera. Shimomura began teaching at Kansas University in 1969, where he now holds the title of distinguished professor of art emeritus. In that time, Shimomura has become an acclaimed and internationally known artist and shown his work in some of the country’s most prominent museums. For the majority of Shimomura’s career as an artist, he’s been creating works that comment on the experience of living in the United States as an Asian American. He says his art generally focuses on one of three themes: the World War II Japanese internment camps, Asian stereotypes and selfidentity of Asian Americans. Many of Shimomura’s pieces contain classic American characters — football players, blonde youths in letter jackets, Superman — mingling with slanted-eyed, buck-toothed intruders. That these stereotyped Asian Americans don’t belong is painfully obvious. Shimomura’s pop and comic book art stylings could almost be taken as humorous if it weren’t for the serious, sometimes tragic subject matter of his pieces. But the superficial lightheartedness of his art gives audiences an entry level to it, and gives Shimomura a chance to get his message across. Once viewers have their mouths open to laugh, Shimomura says,

ABOVE, “Block Dance,” and at left, “American Infamy #4,” both by Roger Shimomura, will be on display at the Lawrence Arts Center, 940 N.H., starting Friday.

People in the Midwest and on the East Coast have very little awareness of it. Here we are 60 years later, and some people still don’t know it happened.” — Roger Shimomura, professor emeritus at Kansas University they are more likely to swallow the sad realities the pieces present. The Minidoka series is decidedly darker than a lot of Shimomura’s other work, literally and figuratively. Nightfall, barbed wire and shadows are common themes throughout. Based on both his observations and diary entries kept by his late grandmother, the exhibition tells the story of a captive people striving to live and love despite their shackled existence. Shimomura says that in his experiences presenting internment camp-themed art, he’s often shocked by how little people know about the camps, to the extent that they sometimes go as far as to question their existence. “People in the Midwest

and on the East Coast have very little awareness of it,” he says. “Here we are 60 years later, and some people still don’t know it happened.” And more than just a statement on a historic and personal event, Shimomura says the internment camp pieces deal with issues that are still present in today’s political and social climate. “If there wasn’t a relevance today, I wouldn’t be doing it,” he says. “I’m not interested in nostalgia.” Susan Tate, executive director at the Lawrence Arts Center, agrees that Shimomura’s exhibition comments on current as well as historical ideas. She says his work succeeds in exposing the xenophobic attitudes of some Americans in the World War II era, attitudes that she still sees today. But she says the works represent more than just one society’s fear of “the other.” She sees the incredible perseverance of the Japanese people who were incarcerated in the camps. Tate points to the Japanese idea of gamen, which she describes as “to bear the seemingly unbearable with dignity and grace.”

Snow jokes exceed limits CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1C

(Hey. When the Weather Channel says “colossal,” who are you to poo-poo?) With the kitchen stocked and staged for Snowmaggedon (the first of so many clever monikers to come), you hunker down — laptop on thighs, cell phone in hand — to watch the Blizzard of Oz roll in. It. Takes. FOREVER! “Where is it now?” your spouse yells from the garage, where he’s sharpening the blade of his snow shovel with a grinder. “You mean, Snowpocalypse 2011? Still can’t see it on the radar. But it’s coming!” Ten to 14 inches expected, according to my Weather Underground app. After a brief check of your firewood inventory, you grab the remote and surf to a “Special Report” on TV: Anchor 1: “We’re in allhands-on-deck mode here at WOMG to bring you up-tothe-minute movement of Snowzilla 2011, the merciless mega-monster storm that threatens to pulverize, then paralyze, the metro and much of the country.” Anchor 2: “For the very latest, let’s go LIVE to our very own Candy Kain on the Interstate. Hey, Candy.” Candy: “Hey, guys. Well, as you can see, I’m wearing my puffiest parka and furriest chapeau in anticipation of our WOMG ‘snow-holdsbarred coverage.’ (She gig-

gles uncontrollably.) Sorry, guys. Couldn’t resist!” Anchor 1: “Snow biggie, Candy!” Anchor 2: “Snow worries!” (She snorts for effect.) Candy: “Snow — I mean — so, there’s not a whole lot to see right now. But (she steps dangerously close to the highway), by tomorrow morning, these roads will be SNOW-going with unprepared drivers stuck in the SNOW-passing lane. City officials tell me their trucks are ready to go, and there’s SNOW limit to their salt supplies. Sorry, guys! My mind’s in SNOW-man’s land tonight. Must be the hat! This is Candy Kain, WSNOW-MG, reporting live. Back to you in the studio.” Anchor 1: (Chortling) “Oh SNOW you didn’t!” Anchor 2: “Snow way, Candy!” Disgusted, you click off the TV, check the radar on your laptop for the 300th time, and start cooking. One cauldron of chili, a pot of soup, two flans and four-dozen Tollhouse cookies later, you’re exhausted. It’s still not snowing, and your husband’s office has canceled work for tomorrow. A sense of dread envelops you like Candy’s puffiest parka. You pop an Ambien — because it is a bona fide emergency, after all — and go to bed. The next morning, you wake to the sound of a freshly sharpened shovel scraping the front walk. Snow-

maggedon is here. Through the excruciatingly long day, your attention drifts from the snow globe swirling outside your windows to your stubborn spouse, who refuses to stop shoveling ‘lest “the storm get ahead of me,” to poor Candy, who is looking more like Nanook of the North as the Blizzard of Oz bears down: Anchor 1: “Continuing our exclusive, snow-holdsbarred coverage, let’s check in with our very own Candy Kain, still on the Interstate.” Anchor 2: “Hey, Candy. How’s the furriest chapeau treating you?” Candy: “Snow p-p-p-roblem, g-g-g-uys. (Her teeth are chattering into the mic.) As you c-c-can see (she gestures like the Tin Man after a hard rain), everyone has hh- heeded the governor’s warning to stay home d-ddue to Snowgasm 2011.” You flip off the tube, so as not to suffer another one of Candy’s snowisms. As you reheat the chili for the 10th time in 24 hours, you realize you no longer love snow. Or emergencies, for that matter. Thanks to the 24hour news cycle, it’s all just snowverkill. Time to hang up the shovel and think spring. But then, I guess that’s a snow-brainer. — Cathy Hamilton is a public relations and marketing consultant, author of 16 books and blogger at Contact her at

“In the act of our having this exhibition, what wins is life and creation and innovation,” Tate says. Although this is the sixth stop on a national tour for “Minidoka On My Mind,” this will be the first and likely only time that Shimomura showcases his works along with his ephemeral objects. Gathered over the past 20 years, Shimomura’s collection ranges from books written by the government justifying the internment camps to artwork made by incarcerees. After the art center exhibition, Shimomura is sending the collection to the National Museum of American History at the Smithsonian. Along with the exhibition, the Lawrence Arts Center is releasing a 120-page publication to serve both as a catalog for the works and ephemera in the exhibition and as a source of information on the exhibition’s subject matter. The publication, also titled “Shadows of Minidoka,” is the product of collaboration between the arts center, Lawrence marketing agency Callahan Creek and Allen Press. It includes essays on life in the internment camps as well as information on Shimomura’s passion for collecting. Presented along with Shimomura’s art and collection, in the art center’s smaller front gallery, will be the work of Japanese American artist Jimmy Mirikitani, who also stayed in the Minidoka camp and was the subject of the film “The Cats of Mirikitani.” As one of several special events revolving around the “Shadows of Minidoka” exhibition, the arts center will be presenting the film with discussion from Shimomura and the film’s director, Linda Hattendorf, on Feb. 28. The exhibition and the events connected with it come with support from the Center of East Asian Studies at KU and with help from a grant from The Japan Foundation Center for Global Partnership. Tate says the LAC will use the funds from the Japan Foundation grant to make supplemental educational materials available to exhibition guests. “Shadows of Minidoka” will be on display starting Friday through March 12 at the Lawrence Arts Center, 940 N.H.

Pride of Kansas program spotlights easy-to-grow plants S

everal years ago I heard a horticulturist say that plants at the garden center are a lot like kittens and puppies. They are little, cute, you want to take them all home, and often you are unaware of what you are actually getting. Even avid gardeners may succumb to the new and exciting flower or foliage, only to discover later the plant is disease-ridden, unable to survive Kansas winters or too big for its planting space. Researchers and professional organizations in the horticulture industry are trying to take some of the guesswork out of gardening. One program to help consumers make more educated decisions on plant selection is called Pride of Kansas. Pride of Kansas is sponsored by K-State Research and Extension, the Kansas Forest Service, the Kansas Nursery and Landscape Association and the Kansas Arborists Association. Pride of Kansas plants are selected based on the plants’ performance in research trials and feedback

Jennifer Smith from professionals across the state. One tree, one shrub and one perennial are chosen each year. This year’s Pride of Kansas plants are Shumard oak, boxwood and catmint. Here is a little on each of these plants. Shumard oak: According to the Natural Resources Conservation Service, Quercus shumardii is native to eastern Kansas and the eastern half of the United States. The tree is 100 feet tall or more at maturity, so think ahead about planting location. One characteristic I especially like is that Shumard oak

grows more quickly than most other oaks, but it still has the strength and form of an oak. It is listed as a moderate-to-fast grower depending on soil quality and water availability. Shumard oaks produce acorns about one inch in diameter. Fall color ranges from orange to deep red and is brighter than most of the oaks. Boxwood: Several species of boxwood (Buxus) are appropriate for this area. There are more than one hundred cultivars available. Often used in hedges and foundation plantings, boxwoods have small, glossy green leaves. They handle shearing and pruning well and are sometimes used in topiary. I think boxwoods might be the ultimate kitten at the garden center. They look like cute little green meatballs, often in 1-gallon pots because they grow quickly. However, many varieties of boxwood are 4- to 6feet wide and tall at maturity. Read the label and give them room to grow or plant a compact variety.

PREVIOUS PRIDE OF KANSAS WINNERS Trees: Lacebark elm, Chinkapin oak, Caddo maple, English oak, Kentucky coffeetree, Bur oak, Eastern redbud, Shantung maple, Prairiefire crabapple. Shrubs: Southern blackhaw viburnum, Tiger Eyes sumac, Leatherleaf viburnum, Common ninebark, Knockout rose, Dwarf Although native to Southern Europe, western Asia, and northern Africa, boxwood are well-adapted to our climate. North Carolina State University reports that boxwood may have been introduced to the United States as early as 1652. Boxwoods are not reported to be invasive. Catmint: While we are talking about kittens, I will try to explain the difference between catmint and catnip. Both are species within the genus Nepeta. Catnip is specifically Nepeta cataria. Catmint may refer to multiple other species of Nepeta. The other key difference

Oregon grapeholly, Butterfly bush, Dwarf Korean lilac, Emerald Triumph viburnum Perennials: Sedum, Russian sage, Karl Foerster feather reed grass, Butterfly milkweed, Switchgrass, Hibiscus, Hosta, Purple coneflower, Black-eyed susans between catmint and catnip is that catnip is often considered weedy and sometimes described as invasive. Catmint is less aggressive and has a more desirable appearance. You might confuse catmint with sage, salvia, blue-mist spirea, or even butterfly bushes. Catmint has brilliant purple flowers born along erect stems. At a distance, it appears as an airy purple mound and blooms repeatedly through the summer. Catmint is also very drought tolerant. — Jennifer Smith is the Horticulture Extension Agent for K-State Research and Extension. She can be reached at 843-7058.


‘Country’-style cupboards great for storing clutter By Terry Kovel

Where to put clutter? How to store extra dishes or clothes or memorabilia? These are questions that have been asked only since the beginning of the 20th century. Before that, storage was a very different problem. For most families, their textiles were their most valuable possessions and were just about the only thing that needed to be stored. The family had to shear the sheep, then clean, card and dye the wool, then make the thread and weave it into fabric. Hundreds of hours of handwork were needed to make a dress or a coverlet, and the family had few spares. Rooms were small, and furniture was placed out of the way. A single cupboard

might be put against a wall or built into a corner. Cupboard tops had open shelves to hold dishes, glasses and pots. Bottom sections had shelves behind closed doors to keep fabrics clean and free of smoke. In the bedroom area, there might be a tall cabinet or cupboard with large drawers for clothing and bedclothes. By Victorian times, houses were being built with a few storage areas, even closets. And by the 1900s, people started wanting cupboards in their kitchens. “Country” furniture is popular today, and its simple, informal lines fit in modern houses. Country cupboards were often painted and had just a top molding and perhaps some door trim. Drawer and door pulls were wooden knobs, and hardware was

made of iron. Collectors today pay a premium for pieces with original painted finish and original parts, including the back panels. Look carefully for replaced wooden parts, especially the feet or bottom board. Cupboard bottoms were splashed with water when the floor was cleaned and they often decayed. Examine everything else, too. It is easy to make a fake or a “marriage.” A good corner cupboard with attractive worn paint, even with replaced parts, sells for $1,000 or more. A complete cupboard with rich finished wood and trim can cost about $3,000 to $5,000.


My small teapot is marked “Imperial Crown China, Austria.” What can

you tell me about it?


The “Imperial Crown China” mark was used from about 1884 to 1914 by Bawo & Dotter, a New York importing company that sold china made in France and Austria-Hungary. It also owned a china decorating company in Fischern, now in the Czech Republic. The company may also have manufactured china in Fischern.

Tip: Look at your home from the viewpoint of a trespasser. Do bushes hide the windows or doors? Are ladders lying around? Can a window be reached by standing on a table or air conditioning compressor? Does your fence hide the burglar from view?

WORN BLUE PAINT can be seen on this “country” cupboard. The top part is shallower than the bottom, giving it the name “stepback cupboard.” It sold for $1,180 at a Brunk auction in Asheville, N.C. Cowles Syndicate Inc. Photo
