A FIFTH-GRADE CLASS AT SUNSET HILL SCHOOL, 901 Schwarz Road in central Lawrence, leaves portable classrooms to head to lunch Thursday. The school is among elementary schools in the district envisioned for upgrades as part of a potential bond issue that would be expected to make changes within the next three to five years. Sunset Hill is simply too small — its fifth-graders all attend class in portables, and the lunchroom also is the school’s gym.

KU taking new approach to curb hazing By Andy Hyland

Kansas University continues to refine its policies toward hazing after the issue flared up twice this academic year. KU placed its chapter of the Phi Gamma Delta fraternity on a two-year probation after an investigation revealed hazing occurred at the fraternity’s annual island party in September. At that party, KU freshman Matt Fritzie was left paralyzed after diving into a makeshift pool. The university is also mulling sanctions for its Interfraternity Council, a student leadership group whose mission includes promoting the greek community. A KU report found that members of that group committed hazing violations relating to paddling one another. Please see KU, page 2A

Scanning the name tags of the audience at Saturday morning’s Chamber of Commerce-sponsored Eggs and Issues event gave a good indication of the day’s hot topic: cuts to state education funding. At least a quarter of those registered for the event were from the Lawrence Education Association, and many more featured “USD 497” on their name tags. Answering a variety of questions was a panel made up of area state representatives Ann Mah, DTopeka, TerriLois Gregory, RBaldwin City, Barbara Ballard, DLawrence, and House Minority Leader Paul Davis, D-Lawrence,

Officials acknowledge that the next bond issue in the Lawrence school district will address needs in the district’s elementary schools: eliminating portables, adding classrooms, fixing roofs, remodeling kitchens and embarking on dozens of other projects — large and small — considered necessary to bring equitable and effective educational opportunities to all students in grades kindergarten through five. Such a goal is poised to emerge later this month from the district’s Lawrence Elementary School Facility Vision Task Force, tasked with recommending short- and long-term

plans for addressing the district’s educational needs while grappling with dwindling finances. One inherent problem: A bond issue is no sure thing. “It’s a huge risk,” said Jessica Beeson, a task force member and parent of two kids at Cordley School, one of three schools being studied by the group for recommended closure next year. Voters, of course, always have the final say in district business: They elect school board members, who have

District may consider bond issue for school consolidation “


We’ve done the secondary schools. Now we need to pony up for the elementary schools, and we can appointed the task force, whose members have spent do that without raising taxes.” months coming up with a vision for the future. But bond issues are about money. And without money, the long-term recommendations of the task force would be in jeopardy. School board member Mark Bradford, for one, isn’t worried. “If we come up with a quality bond issue, with the input of the task force … I think it would go through without a hitch,” said Bradford, who is in line to become board president in June. “We need to start looking at that now. We need to have very specific plans lined out, with what the bond issue would do, and what the outcomes of that bond issue would do.”

Bond issue For now, the task force is concentrating on a twotiered approach to its school sites and buildings: ● Next year, consider closing one or two of three elementary schools: Cordley, 1837 Vt.; Pinckney, 810 W. Sixth St.; and Wakarusa Valley, 1104 E 1000 Road. Such a move or moves would not require a bond issue but would be expected to help the district save money as it receives less revenue from the state. ● Within three to f ive years, consider consolidating four schools into two: Kennedy, 1605 Davis Road, and New York, 936 N.Y., in eastern Lawrence; and Hillcrest, 1045 Hilltop Drive, and Sunset Hill, 901 Schwarz Road, in central Lawrence. Such moves would mean expanding one or two current locations, or building entirely new schools, with the idea of saving money on operations by replacing smaller

— Scott Morgan, Lawrence school board member and co-chairman of the Lawrence Elementary School Facility Vision Task Force schools with larger, more efficient ones. Consolidating schools would mean spending money, and that would require voter approval. Scott Morgan, a board member and co-chairman of the task force, figures that voters would be receptive to a comprehensive bond issue that addresses the district’s long-term needs. All elementary schools would get at least some upgrades as part of such a plan, he said. And with previous bond issues starting to roll off the books in the next few years, he said, the district could seek millions of dollars in authority for renovations and construction without anyone’s property-tax rates increasing beyond current levels. “We’ve done the secondary schools,” he said, referring to previous bond issues approved by voters. “Now we need to pony up for the elementary schools, and we can do that without raising taxes.”

Voter approval But officials should be cautious when pursuing that line of thinking, task force member Beeson said. Eight years ago, voters rejected a proposed $59 million bond issue that would have consolidated schools, renovated others, and f inanced additions that would have enabled elimination of portable classrooms at Broken Arrow, Deerfield, Hillcrest, Kennedy, Quail Run, Sunset Hill and Wakarusa Valley schools.

That financing push lost at the ballot box, a rejection Beeson attributed in large part to voters’ distaste of earlier closures of Centennial, Grant and Riverside schools. She fears the same thing could happen this time around, should the board push to close more than one elementary school next year. “Then, all of our hopes and dreams for having new schools are just gone,” she said. “And all those schools just continue to be falling apart and everything else. Portables stay up.” Beeson just wants to be sure that the task force recommends options that can be supported by data, grounded in viable goals and achievable in a community that embraces education. Chris Bay, in his 11th year as principal at Sunset Hill, figures the task force is on the right track. He wishes such planning had been needed “for decades,” but should serve the community well in the months and years ahead. “One of the great things about working in Lawrence as an educator is that Lawrence is an education community,” he said. “We’ve got KU. We’ve got Haskell. And Lawrence public schools have a great reputation. “This community is an education community. If a bond issue is crafted that makes sense, and it’s respectful of taxpayer money, I think the community would support it.” — Schools reporter Mark Fagan can be reached at 832-7188.

KU taking new approach to curb hazing CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1A

While the university community deals with these incidents, they’ll also be looking at hazing in a new way. Moving forward, all hazing cases will be handled by KU’s new student conduct officer, Nick Kehrwald. He’s been on the job only a couple of weeks since coming to KU from the University of Nevada-Las Vegas, where he held a similar position. Hazing investigations had previously been conducted by assistant vice provosts in the office of the vice provost for student success. Kehrwald, who has a law degree, said students should notice a more proactive approach. Having a full-time staffer devoted to all kinds of nonacademic misconduct will allow for more outreach and educational opportunities, he said. Jane Tuttle, assistant vice provost for student success, said hazing investigations shouldn’t be about pointing fingers, but instead should focus on getting everyone to be part of the solution. “I don’t think that KU’s any

different than any other school,” she said. “But I think that there’s work to be done.” Another option, if the issue persists, could be more intensive educational programs, or bringing in a consultant to do an audit to determine how much hazing is actually occurring here, she said. An antihazing task force has also been convened at KU and met twice so far, said Aaron KANSAS UNIVERSITY Dollinger, chief of staff for KU’s student senate. He serves on the task force. “We’ve clearly had some issues on campus this year that are not OK,” he said. “People need to be held accountable for that.” The task force is looking for ways to make reporting hazing easier, he said. The university’s general counsel is helping to look for ways to keep accusers’ identities secret while ensuring that the accused perpetrators defend themselves and have a fair due process. One way that can be accom-

plished, Kehrwald said, is by ensuring that investigations are conducted in a specific way. Speed is key so members of a group don’t have time to concoct a phony story and get their details straight. Anonymity can be protected by conducting interviews concurrently and to interview as many people as possible so the accuser isn’t singled out, Kehrwald said. Now that he’s on board, he’ll visit a variety of groups — even outside the greek system. Hazing can occur wherever groups exist, he said — in athletics, in fraternities and even in the band. Dollinger said the task force on which he serves and the university at large are trying to foster a culture where people first understand what is and isn’t hazing, and then feel comfortable about reporting it. “It’s not brotherhood when someone hits you with a paddle, and it’s not brotherhood when someone forces you to drink,” he said. “And it’s OK to come forward when these things happen.”

BRIEFLY Former lawmakers address chamber SALINA — Former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich emphasized life-long learning and called for a $134 billion annual investment in job training. He said that’s how much the country spent on unemployment last year. Gingrich, a conservative

Republican, and retired U.S. Senator Bill Bradley, a Democrat, spoke Friday at the annual meeting of the Salina Area Chamber of Commerce. Bradley said improving U.S. schools is made tougher by the lack of national standards. He said that even with the federal No Child Left Behind law, each state was left to set its own standards.

We have the gift for your Valentine!

The Salina Journal reported Bradley drew applause when he called on society to value teachers more, and pay them more, but then added the need for accountability.

Obama takes scalpel to budget President Barack Obama’s budget submission on Monday will take a surgical approach to a deficit problem that his Republican rivals say warrants a meat ax. As Obama seeks $53 billion for high-speed rail over the next few years, House Republicans are trying to pull back $2.5 billion that’s already been promised. He’s seeking increases for his “Race to the Top” initiative that provides grants to better-performing schools; Republicans on Friday unveiled a five percent cut to schools serving the disadvantaged. Monday’s release of next year’s budget plan will be likely ignored by resurgent Republicans intent on cutting $100 billion from the president’s old budget. The GOP drive to slash 2011 spending and much of the savings sought by Obama involve just a small piece of the budget pie — the annual domestic agency budgets that make up just one-tenth of federal spending. Tea party-backed House Republicans are trying to slash tens of billions of dollars in such programs to return them to levels when Obama first took office. Obama’s promise to freeze budgets of domestic agencies at 2010 levels for five years — an austere plan by itself — looks generous by comparison.

Bill would outlaw anti-gender ID bias By Scott Rothschild

TOPEKA — Stephanie Mott, a transsexual woman, tried for nearly 50 years to be a man. It was a journey that she said took her through alcoholism and homelessness. Now that she has started her transition, backed by her faith in God, she talks about the “lifedraining discrimination that is prevalent throughout Kansas against transgender people.” Last week, Mott asked the Senate Federal and State Affairs Committee to approve Senate

Bill 53 that would protect Kansans from discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. State law now protects Kansans from Mott discrimination in housing, employment and public accommodations based on race, religion, color, sex, disability, familial status, national origin and ancestry. Mott said that discrimination against transgender people

Thousands demand reforms


Authorities: ‘Twilight’ fan lied about bite Authorities say a Florida teen has told police that bite marks on her body came from “Twilight”inspired vampire role playing — not from someone who attacked her while she was out jogging. The South Florida Sun Sentinel reports that the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office has charged the 15year-old girl with making a false report. Authorities say the girl is a fan of the vampirebased “Twilight” movies and books. The sheriff’s office says the girl had engaged in “fantasy biting” with a 19-year-old man in August and worried her mother would see the marks. She told her mother she had been attacked while jogging. When deputies couldn’t find evidence of the attack, the girl eventually revealed what really happened. No charges have been filed against the 19-year-old man.

DONNA WIEDERHOLT, OTTAWA, LEFT, REACTS WITH DELIGHT as she receives good results from her body mass index screening Saturday at Lawrence Memorial Hospital’s Healthy Hearts Fair. Her results were particularly special because they were provided by her daughter Carla Wiederholt, a LMH clinical dietician. The BMI screening was one of many exhibits on display at the fair about cardiovascular disease prevention.

Healthy Hearts Fair offers checkups, education By Karrey Britt

About 500 people attended the annual Healthy Hearts Fair on Saturday at Lawrence Memorial Hospital. Most of the participants come back year after year because it provides a good health checkup at low to no cost, and, maybe more importantly, it’s a great way to catch up with friends. Lou Bacco and his wife, Deanne, of Shawnee, along with their daughter Andrea Vieux, of Victoria, Texas, were among the participants. They previously lived in Lawrence. “We’ve been coming for years,” Deanne said. “It’s fun to get the little blood results and then it gives us a chance to look at the exhibits and meet friends.” Besides having her cholesterol checked, she also had a body fat analysis. “No, thank you,” Deanne

Heavily outnumbered by riot police, thousands of Algerians defied government warnings and dodged barricades to rally in their capital Saturday, demanding democratic reforms a day after mass protests toppled Egypt’s autocratic ruler. Protesters chanting “No to the police state!” and brandishing signs that read “Give us back our Algeria” clashed with baton-wielding police in helmets and visors. Organizers said more than 400 people were briefly detained, but aside from some jostling between police and protesters no violence was reported. The opposition said demonstrators’ bold defiance of a long-standing ban on public protests in Algiers marked a turning point. “This demonstration is a success because it’s been 10 years that people haven’t been able to march in Algiers and there’s a sort of psychological barrier,” said Ali Rachedi, the former head of the Front of Socialist Forces party. “The fear is gone.” Organizers said as many as 26,000 riot police were deployed to try to quash Saturday’s rally, but that an estimated 10,000 people succeeded in jostling, squeezing and jumping over the barricades and gathering in the city center before the protest was broken up. Officials put turnout at the rally at 1,500.

Council, said the group “cannot approve that which we believe to be morally wrong.” For Mott, the acceptance of herself came in a church that other transgender people attended. “The attendance book came around and I signed my name, Stephanie Mott, for the first time. I took communion as Stephanie. My communion prayer started out as ‘God, bless your daughter for the faith she has shown you.’”

sometimes leads to alcoholism, drug abuse, poverty and suicide. Advocates for gays and lesbians also are pushing for the bill. Several groups are lobbying against it. “The bill places sexual orientation and self-perceived gender identity not as a protected class, but as a privileged group,” said Judy Smith, state director of Concerned Women for America of Kansas. The Kansas Catholic Conference is opposed, too. And Donna Lippoldt, director of the Kansas Family Policy

said about sharing the results. She said the percentage was in the healthy range, but higher than she expected. The retired couple said exercise and a healthy diet are important to them. Lou is training for an indoor triathlon, and they practice yoga and walk about three miles every morning, among other activities. The couple and their daughter were disappointed that the “grip test” wasn’t available at the fair. There’s a friendly competition among them, and mom usually wins.

“She’s got a strong grip, especially on the left,” Lou said, laughing. Vieux enjoyed perusing The Merc’s booth, where she picked up a recipe for eggplant caviar. She said it’s difficult to find organic vegetables in Victoria, Texas, where she moved about a year ago. Charlotte Sparkes, 70, and Bill Venner, 76, both of Lawrence, were enjoying muffins and yogurt during the fair. They’ve attended for the past 10 years. They get their blood checked, learn about new procedures, and see friends. “It’s just nice to get out,” Sparkes said.

CITY COMMISSION Agenda highlights • 6:35 p.m. Tuesday • City Hall, Sixth and Massachusetts streets • Knology Channel 25 • Meeting documents online at

Airport T-hangars to be discussed BOTTOM LINE City commissioners will receive a report on the feasibility of constructing 20 Thangars at Lawrence Municipal Airport, 1930 Airport Road.

BACKGROUND Airport officials say they have a waiting list of area pilots who want to rent T-hangar space at the airport. A report by the city’s economic development planner found that the $1.3 million project will essentially break even after 30 years. But it also finds that during the first 12 years, the project will need a city subsidy of about $64,000 per year to cover bond payments and other expenses.

Task force evaluating effects of possible school closures By Mark Fagan

Lawrence school district officials are analyzing how closing one or two of three elementary schools in Lawrence — Cordley, Pinckney and Wakarusa Valley — would affect students, the district and others next year and beyond. The three schools have been identified by members of the Lawrence Elementary School Facility Vision Task Force as candidates for recommended closure. Just what effect such moves would have will be the subject of detailed analyses to be reviewed Monday during the task force’s next meeting, which begins at 5:30 p.m. at district headquarters, 110 McDonald Drive. Each of six scenarios — three involving the closure of one school, and then three that would pair schools for closure — will be analyzed to provide requested information, said Rick Doll, district superintendent. Specifically: ● New boundaries, described by Doll as “rough, proposed boundary changes” that would determine where displaced students would go to school. ● How such shifts would affect class sizes in schools receiving additional students. ● Total savings, separated into two categories: staff sav-

ings, as in reductions in the number of teachers; and administrative and operational savings, accounting for fewer principals, secretaries, utilities needs and other expenses. ● Effects on English as a Second Language instruction. Cordley is one of two “community” sites in the district for such ESL programs. ● Effects on special education, particularly autism programs. ● Effects on bus patterns. Task force members anticipate making a presentation to the school board Feb. 28. The school board also will meet Monday night, and among items members will consider is a contract extension with First Student Inc. to provide bus transportation. The five-year extension, which would take effect July 1, calls for a decrease in rates by 0.6 percent for the first year, then increases ranging from 1.5 percent to 5 percent for each of the next four years. By comparison, the current contract started with no increase in year one, followed by annual increases of 2.5 percent. Monday’s board meeting begins at 7 p.m. at district headquarters, 110 McDonald Drive.

Venner laughed and said, “We get our year’s pen supply.” They both walk as much as possible, and Sparkes does an hour of Jazzercise five days a week. She tries to watch her diet but laughed and said, “Chocolate and ice cream tend to sneak in regularly.” Aynsley Anderson, LMH community education coordinator, said she sees a lot of familiar faces and some new ones. Most of the participants tend to be 40 and older. “They also tend to be the ones who care about health and are healthier,” she said. The fair offered seven screenings including blood sugar, body mass index, peripheral artery disease risk, and varicose veins. About 350

people had their cholesterol checked through a blood test. There were 21 educational booths, and the topics included nutrition, diabetes, CPR, smoking cessation and echocardiograms. “It’s just a great opportunity to talk to people in a nonstressful environment,” she said. “I received a lot of nutrition questions and some exercise questions. I teach stop-smoking classes so I got questions about stopping smoking.” LMH’s annual health fair — which focuses on all aspects of health, not just heart disease — will be Sept. 24. It typically draws about 2,000 people. — Health reporter Karrey Britt can be reached at 832-7190. Britt’s health blog can be found at, and follow her at

LAW ENFORCEMENT REPORT • Two Wichita men were booked into Douglas County Jail on Friday afternoon on warrants for aggravated burglary and aggravated robbery, according to the jail booking log. Both men, ages 21 and 20, were arrested in Wichita, though the Lawrence Police Department was listed in the booking log as the agency responsible for the case. A Lawrence police spokesman said he had no further information about the cases and could not confirm whether the cases were related. However, the case number for both suspects in the booking log is the same, indicating a connection. Bond for both men was set at $50,000.

Bill would restrict where sex offenders can live

TOPEKA (AP) — A bill under consideration in the Kansas Legislature seeks to keep sex offenders away from children. It would bar offenders whose victims were younger than 16 from living within 2,000 feet of a school or licensed day care. It also would mark their driver’s licenses with the word “offender” in different colors to show whether the victim was a child or adult. Plus, the offenders would be barred from going on school property. Speaking this past week before a Senate panel, Michell Prothe of Olathe talked about what happened when a convicted sex offender from California moved 200 feet from an elementary school last year. Eventually the man had to move after neighbors discovered he was supposed to be under the supervision of a probation officer in Kansas but was not. Prothe said the situation “served as a spark to illuminate a problem that affects every neighborhood and every school and every child in Kansas.” A similar proposal failed previously because rural lawmakers feared sex offenders would migrate there as they sought to comply with the residency restrictions. Larry Campbell, a former state lawmaker and current Olathe city councilman, said that problem prompted a request to city planners to plot areas on a city map that were 2,000 feet from a school or licensed day care.

States’ tax breaks no guarantee for jobs By Beth Fouhy

Sunday, February 13, 2011

| 7A.


Protesters press for voice in democracy By Lee Keath and Hadeel Al-Shalchi

Associated Press Writer

Associated Press Writers

N EW Y ORK — It’s recently become an article of faith for many governors as they try to attract jobs: raising taxes during a recession is a nonstarter, choking off growth and damaging a state’s fragile economic recovery. With the notable exception of Illinois, where Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn last month signed a 66 percent temporary personal income tax increase and a separate corporate rate hike to help close a $15 billion budget gap, governors this year are mostly vowing to cut regulations and hold the line on taxes to attract employers and rebuild after a brutal recession. “We ... hope that every bill you consider passing will be viewed through the lens of its impact on our economic growth,” Colorado Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper told lawmakers in his State of the State address, sounding a theme many governors share. “This doesn’t mean we compromise our standards or put our land, air or water at risk, but it does mean that we’ll keep a fierce and even relentless focus on jobs.” Whether they can hold to that promise will become clearer in the coming months as governors release their new budget proposals. But there’s a catch to the anti-tax, pro-business rhetoric: Businesses consider a range of factors when deciding where to locate, including the quality of schools, roads and programs that rely on a certain level of public spending and regulation. And evidence suggests there is little correlation between a state’s tax rate and its overall economic health. “Concerns about taxes are overstated,” said Matt Murray, a professor of economics at the University of Tennessee who studies state finance. “Labor costs, K-12 education and infrastructure availability are all part of a good business climate. And you can’t have those without some degree of taxation.” States’ tax rates also do not predict their resilience during an economic downturn. While high-tax states such as New York, New Jersey and California have been clobbered by the current recession, so too have states that pride themselves on low tax rates, including Nevada, Texas and Arizona. The collapse of the housing market and the financial industry meltdown largely drove the current conditions, sparing almost no state regardless of its level of taxes. Governors agree this is a particularly challenging budget year, with federal stimulus dollars drying up after years of deep state budget cuts. Some 34 states raised taxes or fees as recently as 2009 to help close budget shortfalls. Now, chief executives from both parties mostly have little appetite for new tax measures after Republicans successfully ran on tax issues last fall — they now control 29 governorships — and President Obama and Senate Republican leaders teamed up to extend Bushera tax cuts, even for the wealthiest Americans. Illinois’ big tax hike is considered an anomaly — an emergency measure that includes strict spending limits to close a budget hole that is the largest of any state as a percentage of its overall budget. Neighboring states such as Wisconsin quickly pounced, urging businesses to relocate from Illinois even though its tax rate remains lower than those of many states in the region. Meanwhile some other governors have opened the door to potential tax increases, insisting the measures are necessary to offset f iscal calamity. In California, Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown has been promoting a package of temporary tax increases as a ballot measure for voters to consider, while also proposing deep cuts to higher education and social services.

CAIRO — On Egypt’s first day in nearly 30 years without Hosni Mubarak as president, its new military rulers promised Saturday to abide by the peace treaty with Israel and eventually hand power to an elected government. Protesters, still partying over their victory in pushing Mubarak out, now pressed for a voice in guiding their country’s move to democracy. The protesters’ first act was deeply symbolic of their ambition to build a new Egypt and their determination to do it themselves: Thousands began cleaning up Cairo’s central Tahrir Square, the epicenter of their movement. The sprawling plaza was battered and trashed by 18 days of street battles and rallies by hundreds of thousands. Even as thousands flowed in to celebrate, broom brigades fanned out, with smiling young men and women — some in stylish clothes and earrings — sweeping up rubble and garbage. Others repaired sidewalks torn apart for concrete chunks to use as ammunition in fighting with pro-regime gangs. Young veiled girls painted the metal railings of fences along the sidewalk. “Sorry for the inconvenience, but we’re building Egypt,” read placards many wore. “We are cleaning the square now because it is ours,” said Omar Mohammed, a 20-year-old student. “After living here for three weeks, it has become our home ... We’re going to leave it better than before.” A coalition of youth groups that organized the protests issued their first cohesive list of demands for handling the transition to democracy. Their focus was on ensuring they — not just the military or members of Mubarak’s

We are working on how to move into a second republic,” said Shady el-Ghazali Harb, the representative on the coalition from one of the youth organizing groups, the Democratic Front. Protesters were debating whether to lift their 24-hour-aday demonstration camp in Tahrir. The coalition called for it to end and be replaced by weekly mass demonstrations every Friday to keep pressure on. But many in the square argued to remain. One man on a megaphone encouraged everyone to stay until all their demands were met, while others chanted “the people want the square to be cleared,” referring to public grumbling that the protest camp is disrupting life downtown. With Mubarak gone, Egypt’s future will likely be shaped by three powers: the military, the protesters, and the sprawling autocratic infrastructure of Mubarak’s regime that remains in place, dominating the bureaucracy, the police, state media and parts of the economy. Right now, the protesters’ intentions are the clearest of the bunch.

Concealed carry law change may allow blind gun-toters CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1A

renewing their license no longer have to take any sort of test to prove they’re still proficient with a firearm. The changes also removed language from the law that gave the attorney general the right to deny applicants a license if they “suffer from a physical infirmity which prevents the safe handling of a weapon.” A spokesman for Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt — whose off ice oversees the concealed carry program — conceded this week that the office is uncertain whether it has the authority to deny a concealed carry license renewal for any physical reason, even if the applicant is blind. “We are currently working to determine the intent of the Legislature when this change was made during the 2010 legislative session,” Jeff Wagaman, deputy chief of staff for Schmidt, said in a statement. About 30,000 Kansans are licensed to carry concealed firearms. The fact that none of them may ever have to prove to the state again that they can safely fire a weapon brought varying reactions, depending upon which side of the gun debate you’re on. “From my experience, the people who have a license are people who continue to practice with this,” said George Pisani, a Lawrence resident who is a concealed carry instructor and supporter of the law change. “They are cognizant of the fact that if they ever have to use a weapon to protect themselves that vision is pretty important. I think there is a lot of self-policing that goes on.” Brian Malte, director of state legislation for the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, isn’t surprised by the change. He said he sees gun lobbyists across the country successfully persuading state legislatures to remove training requirements and other regulations related to concealed carry. “I call it the walking, talking slippery slope,” Malte said. “That’s the gun lobby. They set up a system that involves weapon proficiency and testing and then they work bit by bit to repeal each piece of it until it leads to what they have in Arizona, where you don’t even need a permit.” ●●●

What the change unquestionably has led to in Kansas is an absurd question by a journalist: Can a blind man legally have a concealed carry permit in Kansas? That’s the question the Journal-World posed to the Kansas attorney general’s office after a review of the statutes no longer appeared to contain any provisions allowing the state to factor in a person’s physical ability or proficiency when renewing a license. To be clear, a test is still required for new applicants. Those who have never had a license in the state are required to attend an eighthour class, and to successfully hit 18 of 25 targets from distances ranging from 3 yards to 10 yards. That class and test have been eliminated for people seeking to renew. Kansas concealed carry licenses are valid for four years. That brings up the possibility that during the fouryear period the person’s physical condition has changed to the point that he could no longer pass that test. Or think of it this way: The person gets his license when he’s 40. Forty years later, he’s on his 10th renewal cycle and is now 80 years old. Could he still pass the test? To take it one step further, what if he has gone blind in those four years or 40 years? If he sent in his application, would it get renewed? After about two days of searching the statutes, Wagaman at the attorney general’s office essentially said the office wasn’t sure.

“We appreciate you pointing this out,” Wagaman said in a response to an e-mail that asked the question about a blind applicant and several others. ●●●

Granted, it probably isn’t likely that someone who is blind will seek to renew a concealed carry permit. But lots of people know of someone’s grandmother or grandfather who insists they can still drive despite declining eyesight. Replace the car with a gun, and that scenario might be more likely. Or what if a daughter calls the attorney general’s office and says her elderly father who is renewing his concealed carry permit has Parkinson’s disease to such a degree that he can’t hold a cup of tea, let alone a gun? Could the state require that applicant to take a proficiency test? Again, Wagaman said he was unsure, and said the office was trying to determine the legislative intent. Schmidt, before being elected attorney general, was a member of last year’s legislature and voted for the changes. The state’s renewal application does require an applicant to swear to several facts under the penalty of perjury. But none of them is related to their ability to safely handle a weapon. That, too, was changed during the last legislative session. Previously, applicants had to swear that they met all the requirements of a specific section of the state’s concealed carry code. Prior to last year, that section included the clause that affirmed the applicant “does not suffer from a physical infirmity which prevents the safe handling of a weapon.” That language has been stricken from the law.

responsibility. I trust people in general.” ●●●

Making any change to the law may be tough. The National Rifle Association, which helped craft the state’s original concealed carry law and the most recent changes, said the proficiency issue was overblown. Jordan Austin, the Kansas state lobbyist for the NRA, said his organization likely would oppose changes that even stopped short of requiring full proficiency testing for renewals. For example, everybody who renews a concealed carry license must go to a Kansas driver’s license office to get their picture taken. All Kansas driver’s license offices have eye testing machines. But Jordan said the NRA likely would oppose any effort to make concealed license holders take an eye test upon renewal. “I don’t ever see that being an idea that we would endorse,” Austin said. “It is not necessary. Why should you be required to maintain some sort of correct vision to exercise a right? You could have left your glasses at home, you could wear contact lenses. It is a subjective standard set by a government agency.” For the NRA, Austin said, the issue comes down to the Second Amendment. He said recent Supreme Court rulings have affirmed that people have a right to own a gun for protection. He believes that right extends to people being able to carry a weapon concealed, and questions whether concealed carry licenses should even be a part of state laws in the future. Several states, with Arizona being the most prominent, no longer require individuals to have a license to

CONCEALED CARRY IN KANSAS Here’s a look at several statistics for Kansas’ concealed carry program: ● 30,797 licenses have been issued since the program began in January 2007. ● 41 licenses were suspended in 2010, with the top reason for suspension being that the license holder was charged with domestic battery (seven of the 41). Other charges that caused suspension included: aggravated assault (five); aggravated assault with a deadly weapon (three); felony possession of controlled substance (three); aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer (two); carrying concealed while under the influence of alcohol (two); electronic solicitation of a child (two); indecent liberties with a child (two). ● 90 licenses were revoked in 2010. The top reason for revocation was that the license holder had moved out of the state (40 of the 90). Other reasons for revocation included: being the subject of a temporary protection from abuse order (13); temporary protection from stalking order (seven); convicted of possession of controlled substances (four); second DUI conviction within five years (three); convicted of aggravated indecent liberties with a child (two).

carry concealed firearms. Austin believes that eventually will be the law in Kansas too. “I see Kansas going in that direction in the not too distant future,” Austin said. “It probably won’t happen this legislative session, but I wouldn’t doubt that it gets considered soon.”

Legislators had varying reactions to the changes. Rep. Paul Davis, D-Lawrence and the House Minority Leader, didn’t vote for the changes but said he understands that people do not want to have to go through unnecessary bureaucracy to have a state license renewed. But he said a change requiring people retake the test after a certain number of years have lapsed from their original test may be warranted. Rep. Forrest Knox, RAltoona, did support the law changes — Knox is the legislator who plans to introduce legislation limiting the ability of universities and local governments to post “no gun” signs on their buildings — but he said this week some of the scenarios that could arise by not testing deserved thought. “I think there are some valid questions there,” Knox said. But he stopped short of saying he would seek to make changes to the law. “I have a lot of confidence in the average Kansan,” Knox said. “I think a lot of people who have concealed carry don’t carry that much because they realize the gravity of it.

Budget strings New Kansas House rules severely limit the give-and-take that should be part of a democratic budget process.


ansans understand that state lawmakers face a difficult budget challenge this year. Most Kansans also would applaud efforts to place a lid on spending in the state budget. What many Kansans would object to, however, is bypassing the democratic legislative process to achieve those goals. Rules passed by the Kansas House earlier this month give the House Appropriations Committee exclusive power for setting the total of the body’s proposed state budget. That means that as few as 12 House members — a majority of the 23-member Appropriations Committee — will set a budget limit that can’t be exceeded even by a majority vote of the entire House. The rule change is being portrayed as a “pay-go” provision, which would require any spending increase to be offset by a spending cut elsewhere in the budget. On some level, that seems like a reasonable approach, but, in practice, it hamstrings any effort to make significant changes in the budget after it has come out of the Appropriations Committee. That committee always has been one of the most powerful in the House; now it’s power is almost absolute. An example of how the provision will affect budget consideration played out last week when the House approved a bill to cut state spending for the current fiscal year. Among other things, the bill approved 7.5 percent salary cuts for state employees making more than $100,000 per year. The bill also cut state spending on special education to a level that some legislators contend will cost Kansas between $16 million and $25 million in federal education funds in future years. Democrats proposed several unsuccessful amendments to restore some of that funding. Trying to accommodate the pay-go provision, Rep. Jerry Henry, Cummings, proposed raising funds by forcing the sale of excess state property. Members of the House Rules Committee wouldn’t allow that move because the budget had no line item for selling property and the funding was uncertain. This situation illustrates just how difficult it will be to make any significant changes to the House budget proposal after it leaves Appropriations Committee. Giving the budget-writing committee so much control over the budget stifles the kind of give-and-take that should be part of the legislative process. The rules also may widen the disparities between budget proposals passed in the House and in the Senate. Many constituents already are looking to the Senate to be a more moderate voice on some budget issues. If the House Appropriations Committee draws severe or unreasonable lines on state spending, negotiations with the Senate will become more difficult. When Kansas voters elect their state legislators, they expect those people to be able to represent their constituents in all important matters facing the Legislature. Unfortunately, the new Kansas House rules severely limit the ability of the vast majority of House members to have any influence over the Legislature’s most important business: the state budget. It will be interesting to see how the new rules play out during the session, but it’s hard to see them having a positive impact on the legislative budget process.

Clarity sought on military spending W A S H I N G T O N — Tall, affable Buck McKeon sits, gavel in hand, at the turbulent intersection of two conflicting Republican tendencies. The chairman of the House Armed Services Committee embodies the party’s support for a “strong” defense, which is sometimes measured simply by the size of the Pentagon’s budget. But the 35 Republicans on his 62member committee include 13 first-term legislators, some of whom embody the tea party’s zeal for cutting government spending. The United States spends almost as much on military capabilities as the rest of the world spends, and at least six times more than the second-biggest spending nation (China). But McKeon says, “A defense budget in decline portends an America in decline.” And: “I’ve been around a long time and I’ve seen us cut defense investments over the years after wars. ... But I’ve never before seen us make cuts during a war. Cuts to defense investment in the midst of two wars is unacceptable.” Asked, however, about the immediate future of the defense budget, he says, after a long pause: “It’s probably going to be smaller.” One war, in Iraq, will, the president promises, end this year with the withdrawal of U.S. forces. The other, in Afghanistan, probably will not become more expensive because the number of troops there probably will not be increased. Furthermore, since fiscal 2001, what is called the mil-

itary’s “baseline budget” has increased 80 percent to $534 billion. That number is, however, much less than what is actually being spent, and not just because it doesn’t include much of the spending on the two wars. The Obama administration wants to cut $78 billion over five years, in addition to cuts already planned. McKeon and others are resisting, starting with Defense Secretary Robert Gates’ decision to halt work on a $14.4 billion Marine program for a new Expeditionary Fighting Vehicle, a 39ton landing craft and tank that can deliver 17 Marines in an amphibious assault. Although the Marines’ last

opposed landing was in 1950 in Korea at Inchon, some legislators think ending the EFV program strikes at the Marines’ core mission. McKeon wonders: What if the next “denied space” the Marines must enter is along the Strait of Hormuz? The Inchon landing craft, which traveled only six miles per hour, had to leave from ships close to shore — too close for today’s shores perhaps bristling with anti-ship missiles. The EFV travels 20 knots from 25 miles offshore — and sprints 45 mph on shore. The average age of America’s amphibious assault vehicles is 38 years, more than that of strategic bombers (34 years) but less than that of tanker aircraft (46 years). Gates favors finding a more affordable ship-to-shore vehicle. Lt. Gen. George Flynn, the Marines’ deputy commandant for combat development and integration, says the EFV program “was unaffordable.” Was. Past tense. Such statements are in the subjunctive mood until Congress speaks. But some congressional voices are impatiently insisting that no one can say how much is being spent on defense, or how. After listening to recent Defense Department testimony, Randy Forbes, a six-term Virginia Republican on McKeon’s committee, was exasperated. He said that for four years the department, whose $708 billion budget — his number — is the size of the world’s 22nd-largest economy

(the Netherlands), has not complied with the law requiring auditable financial statements. And he charged that “none” of the budget is “even in a position to be audited.” He said that the department is not “qualified” to talk about efficiencies if it “does not know where our defense dollars are going” and that it cannot comply with the law if it “does not even have mechanisms in place to perform the audits.” Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., writing to Adm. Gary Roughead, chief of naval operations, said “the Pentagon is one of the few agencies in the federal government that cannot produce auditable financial statements in accordance with the law.” So “I will continue to push for a budget freeze of all base budget nonmilitary personnel accounts at the Defense Department until it complies with the law regarding auditable financial statements.” To govern is to choose, always on the basis of imperfect information. If, however, Forbes’ and Coburn’s strong language is apposite, Congress cannot make adequately informed choices about the uniquely important matters that come to McKeon’s committee. This fact will fuel the fires of controversy that will rage within the ranks of Republicans as they come to terms with the fact that current defense spending cannot be defended until it is understood. — George Will is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group

Snyder always responds as he did in a recent radio interview with Washington Post columnist Mike Wise: “The name is not meant to be offensive whatsoever.” Which is, as it happens, the same argument the City Paper has made; the image had no antiSemitic intent. But Snyder, hypocrisy blind and irony deaf, said it was “silly” to compare that photo with the racial slur that is his team’s name. Actually, it is anything but. The litmus test for those who decry oppression or insult against their people is whether they are willing to hold themselves to the same standard when other people are at stake. You cannot decry bigotry against your fellow Cubans and accept it against Haitians or demand equality for your fellow Christians and deny it to Muslims. But for some reason, we as people often find it easy to ignore our own cries and complaints when they issue from the mouths of others. For some reason, those cries and complaints become tinny to our ears. But principle is principle is principle. And the test of a moral man is the willingness to vindicate principle even for those who do not look like him, even when selfinterest must bear the cost. This is the test Snyder fails. He is disinclined to tamper with a valuable trademark. Why would we even ask him to take that risk? Why would we expect him to show that sort of moral courage? Well ... because it’s right. But apparently, that’s not nearly reason enough. — Leonard Pitts Jr. is a columnist for the Miami Herald.

KANSAS FORWARD MARCUS MORRIS (22) SWOOPS IN for a jam in front of the Iowa State defense during the second half. Morris had a team-high 16 points in KU’s’ 89-66 victory Saturday at Allen Fieldhouse.

KU dispatches ISU, likely to be No. 1 By Gary Bedore

Scoreboard watchers cheered wildly during the first TV timeout of Saturday’s Kansas-Iowa State basketball game in Allen Fieldhouse. That’s when it was revealed to 16,300 fans that No. 1-ranked Ohio State had fallen at No. 13 Wisconsin, meaning the No. 2rated Jayhawks — if they took care of business against the Cyclones — on Monday assuredly would move to the top spot in the AP poll. “During the game, we looked up and saw it when everybody else saw it,” KU junior Marcus Morris said after scoring 16 points and grabbing 11 rebounds in the Jayhawks’ runaway 89-66 victory. “It did, definitely it did,” Morris added, asked if thoughts of becoming No. 1 registered in his

Jayhawks good, entertaining, too

State, including The Keegan Ratings, audio, video, a photo gallery, message boards and more, go to

brain. “Hopefully we’ll be No. 1 by Monday. There’s a lot of talk they might put Texas at No. 1, but I don’t see how.” The No. 3-ranked Longhorns (22-3) are sure to receive some first-place votes from those who place stock in the fact UT handed KU (24-1) its only loss of the season — 74-63 on Jan. 22 in Allen. It’s logical to assume, however, most voters will merely advance the runner-up team one rung on the ladder.

KU’S MARKIEFF MORRIS (21) blocks a shot Please see KANSAS, page 4B attempt by Jordan Railey.

Less than a year ago, as he was discussing in his plush office what he looks for in players when deciding whether to offer them a scholarship, Kansas University basketball coach Bill Self addressed the human aspect of the athletes. “What fits me are personalities,” Self said. “I don’t like coaching duds, I’ll be the first to tell you. Give me a guy you can joke with and have some fun with. That’s one reason I love coaching the twins. They’re really funny. They’ll say things during games that crack me up. I like guys with personality and (who) are a little rough around the edges.” Sometimes, the Morris twins and Tyshawn Taylor, the liveliest personalities on a colorful team, even say funny things during postgame news conferences. Saturday, after a ho-hum, 89-66 obliteration of Iowa State, was one such day.

Tom Keegan

They’re never dull, which usually, not always, but usually, is a good thing that adds to their appeal. The line of questioning had just turned to Monday’s trip to Manhattan to take on Kansas State, a basketball team that transformed into a drama-packed reality show somewhere along the way, rife with suspensions and defections. Taylor was asked: Has he followed the drama? Please see NO JOKE, page 4B

LHS wrestlers savor league crown By Ben Ward Journal-World Sports Writer

LAWRENCE HIGH’S HUNTER HARALSON, TOP, wrestles Shawnee Mission Northwest’s Matt Vanausdall for the 119-pound title at the Sunflower League meet Saturday at SM East.

PRAIRIE VILLAGE — For at least a day or so, Lawrence High’s wrestling team will be able to celebrate, and deservedly so. Highlighted by first-place finishes from Hunter Haralson (119 pounds), Andrew Denning (145) and Reece Wright-Conklin (171), the Lions captured their first Sunflower League championship in five years on Saturday at Shawnee Mission East. The Lions huddled around the

podium and posed for photos as they were awarded the trophy, even cracking a few smiles, but Monday it’s back to business. After all, the Lions are only a third of a way to their ultimate goals, coach Pat Naughton said. “We want to win league, we want to win at regionals (next week), and we want to win at state,” Naughton said. “So we’ve got one down in the Triple Crown, so to speak.” The Free State High team’s aspirations weren’t quite as lofty, but the Firebirds turned in a solid

effort en route to a tie for seventh place with Olathe East. Drew Botello (103), Ben Soukup (135), Mitch McCune (145) and Spencer Wilson (160) each placed fourth for the Firebirds, who drastically improved from their lastplace finish a season ago. Botello, though somewhat disappointed in his fourth-place finish, attributed much of Free State’s success to f irst-year coach Mike Gillman. “I think he’s taught us way more than what everybody expected him to do,” Botello said.

Andrew McLees (130) and Sterling Ozark (275) each won three matches and placed fifth for the Firebirds. “I’m pumped for both schools,” Gillman said. “It’s a good day for Lawrence.” The Lions turned in solid, if not dominating efforts from nearly every weight class. After two resounding victories, 103-pounder Garret Girard took second place after being outpointed, 4-3, in the finals. Please see LHS, page 3B

DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES — Tiger Woods overcame a poor start in windy conditions to shoot a par 72, one shot behind leader Rory McIlroy and two others going into the final round of the Dubai Desert Classic. On dusty day in the desert, Woods showed an uncanny ability to rally repeatedly. He finished with a total of 7-under 209, behind second-round leader McIlroy (75), Denmark’s Anders Hansen (71) and South Africa’s Thomas Aiken (74).

Marino hangs onto lead PEBBLE BEACH, CALIF. — About the only thing that went right for Steve Marino was staying in the lead Saturday at the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. Away from the commotion of celebrities at Pebble Beach, Marino stumbled around Monterey Peninsula with everything from an eagle to consecutive bogeys. It added to a 1over 71, giving him a one-shot lead going into the final round. Former Kansas University golfer Gary Woodland missed the cut by one stroke. He shot a 74 on the par-72 Spyglass Hill course.

NFL Titans hire Gray away from Texas NASHVILLE, TENN. — Titans coach Mike Munchak has filled one of the biggest openings on his staff by hiring Jerry Gray away from the University of Texas to become Tennessee’s defensive coordinator. The Titans announced the move Saturday. Gray was hired by Texas, his alma mater, to be defensive backs coach and assistant head coach to Mack Brown last month. He was due to make $425,000, but this job meant at least doubling that for this season. Gray said in a statement that he knows the timing of this move isn’t ideal. “But this was something that I couldn’t turn down,” Gray said.

Haynesworth charged with assault RESTON, VA. — Washington Redskins defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth has been formally charged with misdemeanor assault stemming from a road rage incident earlier this month. Fairfax County police say the 29-year-old Haynesworth and his attorney appeared at a police station Saturday morning. Haynesworth signed a summons warrant charging him with assault and left. Haynesworth’s agent, Chad Speck, has said the player is innocent and that his accuser is seeking fame and money.

Redskins kick returner stabbed WASHINGTON — The agent for Washington Redskins kick returner Brandon Banks says the player was stabbed outside a nightclub while coming to the aid of a longtime friend, who was critically injured. Agent James Gould says in a statement released Saturday afternoon that Banks suffered a surface knife wound to his side that required stitches. He says Banks is expected to be released today from a local hospital.

COLLEGE ATHLETICS Seton Hall kicks 2 off team SOUTH ORANGE, N.J. — Seton Hall has dismissed seniors Keon Lawrence and Jamel Jackson from its basketball team. Coach Kevin Willard announced the moves on Saturday, hours before the Pirates were to play at Big East rival Rutgers. He said the decision was made “due to a violation of team rules and an ongoing pattern of conduct unbecoming of a representative of Seton Hall athletics.” Lawrence, of Newark, played in all 24 games, averaging 4.5 points, 3.1 rebounds and 2.9 assists. He transferred from Missouri in 2008.

Adams, A&M torch Jayhawks COLLEGE STATION, TEXAS (AP) — Danielle Adams sure gave No. 1 Baylor plenty to think about. Kansas City, Mo., native Adams scored 26 of her school-record 40 points in the first half, and No. 6 Texas A&M coasted to an 81-58 victory over Kansas on Saturday night. The Aggies (21-2, 9-1) have won three straight heading into Monday’s Big 12 showdown at the top-ranked Bears. Texas A&M lost, 63-60, in the first meeting this season. “After the game was over, I immediately start thinking about the next game,� Adams said. “Baylor’s a big game, and everybody is looking for us to do something great — get a win and knock off the No. 1 team.� Adams led the charge in a dominant first half, helping the Aggies build a 19-point halftime lead. The Jayhawks never threatened after the break despite Adams slowing down a bit. She made 10 of her first 14 shots, then went 6-for-12 from the field in the second half. Kansas coach Bonnie Henrickson thinks Adams may have had some inside information about her entering this game. “I think Danielle knows I’m on the All-American committee,� Henrickson said with a laugh. “I feel certain she might know that I’m going to sit at that table in Indianapolis and represent. She made my speech pretty easy. I don’t have to watch any film on that. D-Train and I are good.� Texas A&M coach Gary Blair called Adams special and said the only thing she and fellow senior Sydney Colson need to show him is they can produce in an important game like Monday’s matchup.

Kansas softball unbeaten J-W Staff Reports

JACKSONVILLE, FLA. — Junior Marissa Ingle hit a grand slam while freshman pitcher Kristin Martinez limited Jacksonville to two hits in her first collegiate start as the Kansas University softball team improved to 4-0 on the season with a 6-1 victory. Earlier Saturday, KU defeated Bethune-Cookman, 5-0, in day two of the Jacksonville University Tournament. Martinez tossed all seven innings, fanning six batters and walking two. She almost earned a shutout, but Jacksonville’s Katie Kelly tagged a pitch in the top of the sixth inning for a solo home run. It was one of just two Dolphins hits. Offensively, Kansas made the most of its five hits and also took advantage of two Dolphin miscues on the field. Ingle led the Jayhawks with two hits. In the first game, senior Allie Clark threw a completegame shutout, while junior Liz Kocon went 2-for-2, including a solo home run. Clark gave up just two hits with the help of solid defensive play behind her. No Bethune-Cookman base-runner advanced past second base. Clark improved to 2-0, striking out five batters and walking four. Kansas wraps up its first weekend of play today when it takes on Buffalo for the second time during the tournament.

Carolyn Davis had 16 points, but Kansas (16-9, 3-8) was hurt by a season-high 31 turnovers. The Jayhawks didn’t have an answer for Adams, the Big 12’s leading scorer. “She’s a tough matchup,� Davis said. “She’s a big body. She’s bigger than all of our post players.� Davis, Kansas’ leading scorer, played just six minutes in the first half after picking up two early fouls.

Haralson dominated his first two matches with quick pins, so he wasn’t entirely thrilled with a 5-0 win in his final match. Denning pinned each of his foes with relative ease, and despite slip-ups in the semifinal round, Ben Seybert (189) and Brad Wilson (215) each went 3-1 on the day and finished third. Cameron Magdaleno muscled his way to the finals at 160 pounds, but was outpointed, 95, by powerful SME junior Blake

Hill, who downed Free State’s Wilson in the semifinals. It took Wright-Conklin – the undefeated, top-ranked 171-pounder in class 6A – less than a minute to pin each of his first two opponents, leaving him with little to do but lounge around the gym. Once he finally returned to the mat, SME’s Blaine Hill proved quite a challenge. Wright-Conklin emerged with a 5-3 decision, but spent the majority of the final two periods on the mat, struggling to free himself from the heavily muscled Hill’s grasp.

“I was a little disappointed with how I wrestled,� said Wright-Conklin, who said it was the first time he was held down all year. “But next time I see him, I’ll be ready.� Naughton also singled out others, such as Austin Magdaleno (fourth at 130) and Macon Ezell (third at 152), for their strong performances. “If we didn’t have those guys come through for us today, we’re not walking home with that trophy,� Naughton said.

Angel Morris mothers ailing Robinson By Gary Bedore

Thomasine “Angel” Morris provided some tender, loving care to a fallen Kansas University basketball player Friday afternoon. She drove her vehicle to the surgeon’s office to pick up woozy sophomore forward Thomas Robinson, who’d undergone a procedure to repair a meniscus tear in his right knee. “I took him to the house. I made him some soup, made sure he got his medicine, checked to see if there was anything he needed,” Angel Morris, mother of KU’s Morris twins, said. “After that he

woke up, his teammates came over and had a good time. He went home, woke up today and felt better.” Angel Morris and some of the other mothers of KU players who live in Lawrence have watched over Robinson lately. Robinson’s mom, Lisa, died on Jan. 21 of an apparent heart attack in Washington, D.C. “Thomas is a strong kid and a good kid. We talked about it last night: ‘It’s another situation you have to get through,’” Angel Morris said of Robinson’s surgery, which should keep the 6-foot-9, 237pounder out of action just a couple of weeks. “He went in like a soldier, came out, got some soup, got

some rest and basically now is back to normal. To me, it’s like a minor surgery. To me, kids bounce back faster than adults do. In the next couple weeks, I think Thomas Robinson will be back on the court better than ever.” Angel Morris, like everybody in KU’s extended basketball family, was saddened at the passing of Lisa Robinson. Angel, with the NCAA’s blessing, was allowed to travel to Washington with KU director of basketball operations Barry Hinson to help plan the funeral. “It was heartbreaking because I knew Lisa,” Angel Morris said. “I got to meet Lisa because I’m from D.C.,

like she is. I got to meet her in New York (for this year’s KUMemphis game on Dec. 7) and at Temple last year. “She’s a good girl, a good parent. She’s young. It’s a sad situation, but you can’t say, ‘Move on (to Thomas),’ because that’s your mom. You are always going to think about your mom. Thomas is still sad about it. He still knows he has to do well for his sister, his brother and also himself.” Angel Morris downplayed her role in helping out in D.C. “I think I did what any other parent would have done,” Angel said. “I’d say the funeral wouldn’t have gone on without coach Hinson. He’s a great person.”

In addition ... “All the mothers are fantastic. They are pitching in,” she reported. “They didn’t know Thomas was getting surgery. When they found out, I got a bunch of texts concerned about him, seeing if there’s anything he needs and if they could be of any help.” Her sons Marcus and Markieff are KU’s top two scorers and rebounders in their junior campaigns. “I am very proud of Marcus and Markieff,” Angel Morris said after watching Marcus hit for 16 points and 11 rebounds and Markieff 14 points and 11 boards in a 89-66 rout of Iowa State. “They are developing real well, growing into nice

No joke: KU good

NOTEBOOK VIP in ‘house Former three-term U.S. Senator Bill Bradley spoke to the Jayhawks before the game. He attended as guest of KU graduate David Booth. “He was so smooth, and his message was really right on,” KU coach Bill Self said of the former New York Knicks player and U.S. basketball Olympian. “He had our guys’ attention when talking about Game Seven (in Finals) with Willis Reed) limping out, tying that (R into being a good teammate and what makes teams, using basketball as a vehicle to enhance your life.” Speaking as halftime guest on the Jayhawk Radio Network, Bradley revealed it was his first game in Allen. “It’s quite exciting. I like the enthusiasm and spirit in here. It’s unbelievable,” Bradley said. Other faces in crowd: Former KU players Eric Chenowith and Christian Moody and Wichita Heights junior standout Perry Ellis. Selby update Self said “no” when asked if he thought Josh Selby (stress reaction in his right foot) would play Monday night at Kansas State. “If he can’t practice fullspeed yesterday and can’t play today, then I don’t see how you can get better in one day,” Self said. “A lot is between his ears, too, in that it’s not going to feel good. He’s very tender, sore, but he’s not as injured as what it feels. He has a severely sprained ankle. It hurts to walk on it. You have to somehow fight through that a little bit.” Self said he would not play Selby until he shows in practice he can play effectively despite the discomfort. “Hopefully it’ll be better sooner rather than later and he can be full-speed in the next week or so. We’re disappointed because he doesn’t feel as good as what we anticipated him feeling so far,” Self said.

young men (and) doing a good job on the court as well.” They’ve come a long way since their freshmen campaigns. “I think they were scared of Kansas,” Angel Morris said. “Kansas scared them to death because they were freshmen. Now that they are used to Kansas they can play basketball like they did in high school.” She was asked what to tell KU fans who’d like the duo to stay for their senior seasons and put the NBA on hold for just a while longer. “I would tell the fans, ‘Hold on,’ because I’m hoping they’ll be around another year,” she said with a laugh.

practiced so hard. We’ve gotten better. We’re ready.” KU junior Tyshawn Taylor, who had best offensive game since a 15-point outing against UMKC on Jan. 5, said ultimately being No. 1, “doesn’t matter. We were No. 1 all of last year, too, and don’t have anything to show for it so ... I guess it’s nice, cool to be No. 1, but it doesn’t really matter.” The Jayhawks, who were preseason No. 1 a year ago, kept the ranking for eight straight weeks. KU was No. 1 all but four weeks in a season in which the Jayhawks won the Big 12 regular season title, but lost in the second round of the NCAAs. “I think last year we kind of took No. 1 for granted a little bit and came out there like, ‘Ah, we know it’s going to continue,’’’ Taylor said. “I think being with guys who have been through that and know how that team was last year and know how it feels to lose being No. 1 and it being over that fast … I feel we won’t let that happen. We don’t want to feel that again. We know when it comes down to it, we’re not going to go home sad.”

“I want to be No. 1,” Morris said after a game in which four Jayhawks scored in double figures (Markieff Morris, Tyshawn Taylor 14 apiece and Brady Morningstar 13) en route to a 51.6 percent shooting effort. The Jayhawks, who cruised to a 33-12 lead, were never threatened on a day ISU hit 14 of 32 threes. “I want to get everybody’s best shot because I think we can take it,” Morris added. “TRob (Thomas Robinson, out two weeks following meniscus surgery) did go out, but I think other guys are going to step up.

KU coach Bill Self doesn’t want to hear any talk about his team being better able to “protect” the top ranking this year. “We were No. 1 last year all but two, three weeks. We protected No. 1 pretty well,” Self said. “Whenever you say ‘guard’ something, I think it’s almost defensive mode trying to hang onto something. We need to be in attack mode no matter what. “If it happens, it doesn’t mean anything. Somebody has to be No. 1. If it happens, then I think it adds to the excitement going to Manhattan (Monday). Texas was No. 1 going in there last year and got a knot put on ’em. It adds to the game which will probably make it a little more adrenaline in the building.” Time will tell if KU, as expected, holds off Texas for the No. 1 ranking and how KU will react as No. 1 on Monday night. “We go into every game knowing this team is capable of beating us,” Morris said. “That’s how we approach every game. That’s what coach says in the huddle. We know no matter who it is, they are capable.”

Iowa State impressed by Jayhawks each of those traits during the 37-14 start that all but buried the Cyclones. Marcus and Markieff Morris combined for 18 of KU’s first 37 points — each hit one bucket from three-point range — and six Jayhawks scored in the onslaught that forced Hoiberg’s crew out of its game plan. “We had three big keys,” ISU’s first-year coach said. “Take care of the basketball, get back in transition and match their physical play. And we went out and turned the ball over, and you just can’t do that against this team. They make you pay more than any other team when you turn the ball over.” That was the idea from the Iowa State side of things. As for ISU’s plan to limit Kansas? “We wanted to try to make ’em beat us from the outside

and not let the Morris brothers get established down low and dominate like they did the first game against us,” junior guard Scott Christopherson said. “But, you know, they kind of did whatever they wanted.” Kansas shot 52 percent from the floor, including 56 percent in the first half. The Jayhawks hit nine of 27 three-point attempts, with four in the first half, when the Jayhawks built a 45-26 halftime lead. ISU fared much better the longer the game went on. Led by Christopherson’s 16 points, the Cyclones shot 46 percent in the second half, including 8-of-16 from behind the arc. Offense, Christopherson said, was not the problem. “We gotta do a better job in the first five or six minutes of not letting teams get so comfortable,” Christopherson said.

“I mean, I’m not like on my computer looking it up, but it’s on ESPN a lot, so I see it, and I notice it. People tell us about it, so it’s hard not to know what’s going on, but I mean, my name scrolled across the bottom of ESPN a couple times, too, so I mean, they’ll be fine,” Taylor said with a smile, remembering his days of football fights and Facebook posts. “They’re going through some stuff like most teams do.” He showed he can laugh at himself and wasn’t about to laugh at K-State for what it has experienced just one season after making it to the Elite Eight with underclassmen doing most of work. Taylor had reason to be in such a light-hearted mood. He had just played a terrific game, preventing Iowa State star Diante Garrett from penetrating and basically making him a nonfactor. Unlike in his previous two games, Taylor also stopped rushing his floater shots and produced 14 points on 6-of-11 shooting, four of the misses on three-pointers. Marcus Morris, fresh off a dominant, stat-stuffing performance that included 16 points and 11 rebounds, also entertained the audience during the postgame media session. He teamed with Kansas State star Jacob Pullen on a national team during the summer. “He’s just a good friend,” Marcus said of Pullen. “We talk about our years. We talk about our coaches.” At that point, Morris tried and failed to contain his laughter. Some, but not all, of his mischievous grin was inspired by the image of volcanic K-State coach Frank Martin popping into his head. “We talk about a lot of stuff,” Morris continued. “I don’t say anything bad. But I just talk about his coaches. He talks about how Frank is. I talk about the difference between them (Martin and Self). We just compare our coaches. I tell him coach (Self) just doesn’t do it as much on the court as Frank does. Frank is just so emotional on the court, but coach Self, he waits until we get behind closed doors. That’s when he do what he do.” The next voice belonged to press-conference moderator Chris Theisen. “All right, guys, thanks so much,” Theisen said, signaling the end to the session. Whatever it is Self does “when he do what he do,” with colorful language delivered at high volume, it works. For the first time this season, Kansas likely will be ranked No. 1 when the polls are released Monday, putting an end to Ohio State’s fourweek run that followed Duke’s 10-week stay on top. Kansas (24-1) spent most of last season ranked No. 1 in the nation and then lost its best player, Sherron Collins, plus a pair of NBA lottery selections, Cole Aldrich and Xavier Henry. KU is 57-4 in the past two seasons, a record compiled using just one player (Collins in 36 of those games) who played more than four minutes of the 45-minute national-title victory against Memphis in 2008. That’s no joke.

Technology can help handle difficult in-laws Dear Annie: Last summer, my husband became seriously ill while out of town. When I called his family, they started bossing me around and even called the hospital and berated the staff. I had my husband moved to a larger hospital in the city where his sister lives. She was with me when I talked to the doctor about the “do not resuscitate” order. But instead of repeating what was actually said, she told his family members that I was eager to pull the plug. She also told everyone that I didn’t love him. One lie led to another, and I finally had her banned from the hospital. I refused to stay at her house and have the entire family screaming at me because of this crazy woman. So I was all alone in a strange city. Now, five months later, his family keeps asking when my husband is going to die. He is doing OK, or at least as well as can be expected. He has setbacks and often has to be hospitalized, but the doctors have given me no reason to think he is going to die anytime soon. His family makes it hard for me to talk to them and keep them updated. The only normal ones are my husband’s daughters from his first marriage. They have been very supportive. The crazy sister reads tarot cards, and I’m sure

Dear Not: This is your husband’s family, and they care about his health. But that doesn’t mean you have to subject yourself to their attacks. Technology can be very useful in these situations. When your husband’s condition changes, you or your stepdaughters can send out an email or text message with the update, saying you “thought they’d want to know.” If they phone you, let the calls go to voicemail. That way, you can maintain some control while still being a considerate inlaw.

Whatever happened to sweeps? Efforts like “The Winds of War” weren’t epic or even that good, but they offered an entertaining take on popular historical fiction. And a breathtaking change in costumes. With the networks playing sweeps month safe, miniseries fans should not miss the three-part “Masterpiece Classic” (8 p.m., Sunday, PBS, check local listings) “Any Human Heart.” Based on the 2002 novel by William Boyd, “Heart” follows writer, art collector and ambitious lover Logan Mountstuart throughout much of the 20th century. Over the course of three weeks, he’ll be played by Jim Broadbent, Matthew Macfadyen and Sam Claflin in different stages of life. First seen at Oxford in the 1920s, Mountstuart tries desperately to find love, or at least sex, and embarks on a career as a writer that has him rubbing elbows with Ernest Hemingway, Ian Fleming and others. He’s published well and published badly, develops writer’s block, becomes a journalist and witnesses the horrors of the Spanish Civil War. He marries and divorces an Earl’s daughter, has children with at least two women and all before the end of the first episode! Don’t go looking for great insights into history or literature. Simply enjoy the ride as Mountstuart experiences the tumult of History at the speed of life.

Texas drops BU; top spot next? AUSTIN, TEXAS (AP) — Texas keeps winning. Is a return to No. 1 next? Freshman Tristan Thompson had 17 points and 13 rebounds, and No. 3 Texas held off a furious rally by LaceDarius Dunn and Baylor to remain undefeated in the Big 12 with a 69-60 victory Saturday. The Longhorns have won 10 in a row. And given topranked Ohio State’s loss to Wisconsin and the fact that Texas handed No. 2 Kansas its only loss of the season, the Longhorns could find themselves sitting at No. 1 come Monday. They hope not. “We don’t want No. 1 ,” sophomore forward Jordan Hamilton said. That’s understandable considering what happened last season: Texas started 17-0 and reached No. 1 for the first time in school history before a quick losing skid left them Morry Gash/AP Photo unranked in a matter of WISCONSIN’S JORDAN TAYLOR (11) CELEBRATES WITH FANS after beating previously unbeaten Ohio State, 71-67, on Saturday in weeks.

No. 1 Baylor 96, Texas 68 W A C O , T E X A S — Brittney Griner scored 29 points, missed a dunk and outscored Texas by herself in the first half, leading the top-ranked Lady Bears (23-1, 10-0 Big 12) to their 20th-straight victory Saturday. Griner added 12 rebounds for her 23rd career doubledouble and had seven blocked shots.

No. 14 Oklahoma 69, Missouri 47 N O R M A N , O K L A . — Joanna McFarland matched her career-high with 14 points, Lyndsey Cloman scored 10, and Oklahoma relied on improved post play to beat Missouri. McFarland had been relegated to the bench, and coach Sherri Coale gave freshman Nicole Griffin her first career start while continuing to look for reliable play at center.

led 65-60 when Dunn’s threepointer rattled in and out with about 25 seconds left. Texas’ Gary Johnson made two free throws to put the game away. Texas (22-3, 10-0) could have settled the game much earlier but went 22-of-37 from the free-throw line. “I liked the fight,” Baylor coach Scott Drew. “You play a game like this and walk away a better team.” Texas was in complete control after a blistering first half, then looked helpless to stop Dunn in the second as he seemed to score at will. “He heated up for them and kept them in the game,” Thompson said. Baylor (16-8, 6-5) has more size than Texas has seen this season with three starters at least 6-foot-10, and the Bears tried to use that bulk to match Texas’ physical style of play. Baylor freshman Perry Jones had 13 points and six rebounds.

No matter if you finish a book a month or one every couple of days, every reader needs a suggestion now and then. And what better time to replenish your book wish list than at the beginning of the year? We asked local book sellers what books not to miss this year. They could be fiction or nonfiction. They could be books coming out in 2011 that are highly anticipated. They could be books published last year (or even a few years before) that are worth your time and/or their weight in pop culture cred. Whatever they are, they come highly recommended. Thanks to Heidi Raak of The Raven, 6 E. Seventh St., Matt Kelly of The Dusty Bookshelf, 708 Mass., and Clay Belcher of Signs of Life, 722 Mass., and their staffs for some fabulous suggestions.

“Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand” by Helen Simonson Major Ernest Pettigrew, a retired military man, is all English tradition and stiff upper lip. That is until he begins to squabble with his family over keeping his most valuable family heirlooms, a pair of symbolic hunting rifles. In his fight to keep the guns from being sold for a handsome price to a collector, he finds an ally and friend in Jasmina Ali, a Pakistani shopkeeper and neighbor. What ensues is a comedy of manners and an enjoyable look at British culture.

Occupation: Graduate student at KU working on virology, particularly cellular antiviral mechanisms involved in controlling herpes infections. Hometown: Broken Arrow, Okla. Time in Lawrence: Five-and-ahalf years How would you describe your style? Somewhere between lazy and comfortable. I have a beard at the moment because I don’t feel like shaving. My clothing is mostly made up of T-shirts from Threadless and stuff that was on sale at either the Gap or Banana Republic. I typically favor solid colors or simple patterns versus clothing with logos. Most of the day, though, I wear a lab coat.

LAWRENCE.COM See a trailer for “Super Sad True Love Story” and hear an excerpt from “The Hunger Games” at Also, keep checking back for forthcoming details on our book club.

Just released Feb. 8, but if you’re ready for a smart vampirewitch love story, it’s worth the wait. No, this isn’t some young adult fiction; rather it’s written by Harkness, a history professor at the University of Southern California, who was a Guggenheim fellow. So, no, despite the fact that it involves a modern-day witch falling in love with a 1,500year-old vampire, this isn’t some “Twilight” clone. The story concerns Diana, a young scholar studying in Oxford’s Bodleian Library, who unlocks a bewitched manuscript that contains secrets concerning witches, vampires and others of their ilk. Along the way, she meets a vampire geneticist, and their bond is much more Anne Rice than Stephenie Meyer.

Shutter-speed innovations have come a long way By Mike Yoder

Do you have any fashion influences? Nothing in particular, just things and people I see around. I’ve been watching a bunch of Carl Sagan recently, so corduroy jackets and turtlenecks are starting to look pretty tempting. I wish “Mad Men” rubbed off on me more than just making me want to smoke and drink heavily. People say I look like... I used to hear John Cusack or Chester Bennington, but nothing recently.

Photographers take it for granted that we can stop action with fast shutter-speeds. We can freeze a basketball player dunking a ball or an eagle in mid-flight with a 1/500th-a-second exposure. It’s not unusual to see shutter-speeds of 1/4000th on some camera models. Shutter-speed improvements have come a long way since the first photograph. An early nature photograph from a camera obscura in 1826, by French inventor Nicephore Niepce, required an eight-hour exposure. In 1839 Louis Daguerre captured the firstever photo of a person in a daguerrotype. The scene was of a Paris pedestrian stopped for a shoe shine, and the exposure was several minutes. In an 1839 publication, Daguerre provided recommended exposures based on the season. He wrote that

MORE ONLINE Go to this column online at to view a selection of Civil War photographs. exposures should be from “five to six minutes in summer and from 10 to 12 minutes in winter.” Early portrait photography was difficult because it required subjects to remain still for long periods. Photographer John Draper took a 65-second portrait of his sister in 1840 and wrote, “the indistinctness which may be detected in some parts arises mainly from the inevitable motions of the respiratory muscles.” I guess just being alive and breathing could ruin an image. To commemorate the 150th anniversary of the start of the Civil War, the Associated Press recently posted a collection of

photographs of the war (18611865) from the Library of Congress. Two decades after the invention of the daguerrotype, exposures of 10-30 seconds were still required. So it’s no surprise that most subject matters in these images are posed group and individual portraits. Action photographs were captured from a distance, in a wide scene where subjects were small and motion blurring less noticeable. It’s hard to imagine the hardships that photographers like Alex Gardner, T.H. Sullivan and Matthew Brady worked under to get these images. As you view these images during this anniversary, consider how the extended exposures limited what was photographed and celebrate how far technology has advanced for the modern photographer. — Chief Photographer Mike Yoder can be reached at 832-7141.

THIS PHOTO, credited to Alexander Garner from 1862 at the Battle of Antietam, pictures Allan Pinkerton, Abraham Lincoln and John McClernand. The stiff poses were necessary because of the long exposures of several seconds. Note how Lincoln’s face is blurred from his head moving during the exposure.

“The Hunger Games” by Suzanne Collins

Yes, it’s technically a young adult book. But it’s a very intense, adult story of oppression, love and survival. The story is set in the future, when what’s left of the U.S. is now a country called Panem — a nation of 12 districts surrounding an all-powerful Capitol. Living in the poor, Appalachian District 12 is Katniss Everdeen, a 16-year-old who takes care of both her younger sister and her mentally unwell mother. When Katniss is chosen for the Capitol’s yearly fight-to-thedeath reality show “The Hunger Games,” her world and the world of Panem is turned upside down. “The Hunger Games” is just the first in a three-part series, and a film based on the book is currently in preproduction.

‘A broad margin’ to life Poetry, fiction, memoir combine in Maxine Hong Kingston’s seventh book By David L. Ulin Los Angeles Times

OAKLAND, CALIF. — On a Friday afternoon in early winter, Maxine Hong Kingston sips a cup of green tea at a table in her kitchen and ponders the fluidity of her work. Outside, the light is hazy, white-blue and diffuse. Down the hill, there’s a stunning bay view, the water choppy and alive. At moments such as this, sea and air, land and sky seem to blend, as if vision alone were insufficient to frame the borders of the world. Kingston’s seventh book, “I Love a Broad Margin to My Life” (Alfred A. Knopf: 232 pp., $24.95), takes shape in a similarly elusive territory, blurring the lines among poetry, fiction and memoir. Constructed as a long narrative in verse — its title is both pun and metaphor — the book is a reflection on aging. “What does old look like?” Kingston, who turned 70 in October, writes early in the book. “Sometimes I am wrinkled, sometimes not.” But her new book is also a meditation on form and formlessness, on meaning and identity, and how the most essential truths often exist outside the boundaries, in something of an ur-state. “If I were a sculptor,” Kingston says, her voice soft yet also somehow forceful, “it would be mud and clay. In a Buddhist sense, I’m working with no-form and form and seeing whether I can give this inchoate mass a shape.” Kingston has occupied a space between genres since her first book, “The Woman Warrior,” was published in 1976. In that memoir, the winner of a National Book Critics Circle Award, she introduced her own story — recounting,

MAXINE HONG KINGSTON, pictured in New York City in September 2006, has come out with her seventh book, “I Love a Broad Margin to My Life.” in part, her upbringing and early life in Stockton, Calif. — through the filter of mythology, invoking the legendary Chinese heroine Fa Mu Lan, as well as a variety of family figures, including her mother and an aunt who killed herself in China in the 1920s after giving birth out of wedlock. (Her 1980 follow-up, “China Men,” won a National Book Award.) Such stories have become the substance of Kingston’s narrative universe, and many of them reappear in “I Love a Broad Margin to My Life.” “As a writer,” she explains, “this is answering the question that there are mistakes, there are unfinished stories, there’s new information, there’s even new understanding of what happened earlier, and instead of going back and correcting it and making a new edition, what I’m doing is writing a new story and referring back to the old one and catching it up to date.”

For Kingston, then, each of her books is best read as part of a long process of engagement, in which individual installments are less important than the full body of work. “I Love a Broad Margin to My Life” is a case in point, with antecedents in almost every part of Kingston’s career. In addition to “The Woman Warrior” and her 1989 novel “Tripmaster Monkey: His Fake Book” (the novel’s protagonist, Wittman Ah Sing, returns to animate “Broad Margin’s” middle section), the new book has deep roots in “To Be the Poet” (2002), a slim volume of poetry-cum-essays that grew out of lectures she delivered at Harvard. “Let my life as Poet begin,” Kingston declares there. “I want the life of the Poet. I have labored for over twelve years, one thousand pages of prose. Now, I want the easiness of poetry. The brevity of

the poem.” Such an invocation, she admits, has a bit of the trickster to it, for, as poets everywhere like to remind her, the life of a poet is hard. “All my poet friends, they’re just appalled,” she laughs. “They say a poet’s life is tragic.” Yet here, as in her other works, Kingston is after something deeper, a different strategy for thinking about her work. “It’s an experiment,” she suggests, “to risk saying, ’I’m just going to let it come, and if it comes, how wonderful, and if nothing comes, there won’t be a poem.”’ With “I Love a Broad Margin to My Life,” this meant the possibility that there might not be a book, as well. “The beginning of the book,” she says, “is like a diary. So whatever happened, I would see whether it could be put into words. I was always ready for it to end and for nothing to happen. I was also ready to see whether it would be a diary forever or whether I would get out of the mundane and the daily and into a larger vision and larger journey.” What Kingston’s talking about is patience, which, she acknowledges, has not always been easy for her. “The younger writer,” she recalls, “was always pushing and forcing and ambitious and worried. Now I’m at the point where if it comes, it comes, and if it doesn’t, it doesn’t. If I get published again, OK, and if I don’t, it doesn’t matter.” In one sense, this has to do with the loosening that comes from experience; her son, Joseph, is grown and on his own, a musician living in Hawaii, and after many years as a professor at UC Berkeley, she retired in 2006. Indeed, she hints in the closing pages, this may be her last book: As far back as I can remember, I wanted to write ... Before I had language, before I had stories, I wanted to write. That desire is going away. I’ve said what I have to say. Asked if she means it, she smiles shyly and murmurs, “I do, I do. I wrote that five months ago, and I haven’t started a new project. So this is a strong possibility.”

A centenary celebration for Elizabeth Bishop By John Timpane

The Philadelphia Inquirer

PHILADELPHIA — One hundred years ago, in Worcester, Mass., a woman’s life began. An inward, shy life, a life looking for a home; a life of intense loves and friendships, alcoholism and acclaim. It was also the life of an American original, a woman whose poetry exerts a greater influence as time goes on. As the poet and critic Linda Gregerson says: “She’s a national treasure!” Elizabeth Bishop’s repute has never been higher, or her verse more revered. Her centenary touches off celebrations this week in New York, Boston, and Chicago. In Canada, the province of Nova Scotia (where Bishop lived as a child) has scheduled an entire year of events. So has Vassar College, her alma mater. In June, the Poetry Conference at West Chester University will include a three-day seminar on Bishop’s poetry. Farrar, Straus and Giroux is issuing three separate volumes of her work: “Poems”; “Prose” (hardcover boxed edition of both, $75); plus “Elizabeth Bishop and the New Yorker: Complete Correspondence.” Also notable, from 2008: the inspiring “Words in Air:

The Complete Correspondence Between Elizabeth Bishop and Robert Lowell,” edited by Thomas Travisano and Saskia Hamilton (Farrar, Straus and Giroux, $45). “She’s become much more of a public figure since her death,” says Lloyd Schwartz, a friend of the poet’s in the 1970s and the editor of “Prose.” “We’ve been aching to celebrate her.” Bishop is even a movie star now. Millions watched as, in the 2005 film “In Her Shoes,” Cameron Diaz read Bishop’s famed poem “One Art” to a man on his deathbed — “The art of losing isn’t hard to master” — and discussed it with him. (Schwartz says Bishop “would have loved knowing her poetry would be in the movies.”) In Brazil, the closest thing she ever had to a real home, they’re making a biopic about her, “A Arte De Perder” — The Art of Losing. Bishop, who called writing poetry “an unnatural act,” was an obsessive perfectionist, keeping poems for years, publishing only about 80 in her lifetime. But for many readers, they’re indelible. In poems such as “The Fish” and “The Armadillo,” she emerges as one of the greatest descriptive poets in English. In “Cape Breton,” she writes of thousands of light songsparrow songs floating upward

freely, dispassionately, through the mist, and meshing in brown-wet, fine, torn fish-nets. In “The Moose,” a bus leaves a moose (”Towering, antlerless,/ high as a church, / homely as a house”) behind on a lonely road: the moose can be seen on the moonlit macadam; then there’s a dim smell of moose, an acrid smell of gasoline. Her poetry is vivid yet reticent, unforgettable (”In the Waiting Room”) yet elusive. There’s an unfinished quality to it, which, poet that she was, she knew and nurtured. Her range was prodigious, from childhood memories to life in Brazil, from newspaper misprints to the American voice of the 20th century. Gregerson says, “Elizabeth Bishop is one of the indispensable fonts of 20-century American poetry, and a tonic corrective to all that is overwrought in our efforts to marry mind and heart. Her genius was for making pure, fresh, idiomatic North American speech the vehicle for intensest mindfulness and concentrated feeling.” Born in Worcester, Bishop lived for a while on her grandparents’ farm in Nova Scotia. She moved back to Massachusetts and in 1929 entered Vassar. After she

graduated in 1934, there followed a life of travel, writing and recognition, including what we’d now call the Poet Laureate of the United States (1949), the Pulitzer Prize (1956), and the National Book Award (1970). She lived in Paris, in New York, in Brazil from 1951 to 1966 and on and off through 1971, and in Cambridge, Mass., dying in Boston in 1979. Her life was based on friendships. The great loves of that life included Lota de Macedo Soares, with whom she lived in Brazil, and Alice Methfessel, whom she met when she came to Harvard University in 1970 to teach. She also had a lifelong affair with the New Yorker, which began publishing her poems in 1940. “I was surprised to see how involved with her poetry, and with her life, the New Yorker editors were,” says Joelle Biele, editor of Bishop’s correspondence with the New Yorker. “The editors were much tougher on her because they knew she was such an excellent poet and they didn’t want readers to think she’d made any errors.” As writer and editors write back and forth, we see a younger poet standing up for herself more and more. Among her beloved friends were two other 20thcentury greats, Marianne Moore and Robert Lowell.

Poet’s Showcase ‘The Day It Rained Daughters’ begins quietly at the cafe where she orders the usual: a poached egg, two slices of oven-baked bread, and a tasty fruit cup. then the deluge comes — the eldest and her clan, second born close behind followed by birthday balloons attached to three bubbling grandchildren. surprise lights her face when the youngest enters with two more balloon kids. emotions escalate as the California gal drops from the sky and birthday girl surrenders to the lump in her throat, the tear in her eye. “it’s the happiest day of my life,” she confesses and conviviality reigns the day it rained daughters on a cloudless sunny day. — Lee Carlson, Lawrence

‘Dead Man’ cast members spin an effective yarn without getting what he wanted — neither a fulfilling life nor his lobster bisque, and he reflects on the last moments of his mundane life with ultimate afterlife perspective, his comments a modern iteration of Emily Dickinson’s pessimistic “I Heard a Fly Buzz When I Died.” Natalie Liccardello, Will Averill and Dianne Yvette play Gordon’s mistress, brother and widow, respectively, and though the play would benef it from a bit more personality from each of their characters, their scenes — and all of the scenes

By Thomas C. Hardy

“People are yammering into their phones, and I’m hearing fragments of lost love and hepatitis,” the dead man says, discussing his morning’s commute. The line primes the audience for an issue at the heart of “Dead Man’s Cell Phone,” an issue on which we are all experts: the degree to which cell phones and other technologies connect us and the degree to which they fragment our lives. The play, directed by Ric Averill and showing at the Lawrence Arts Center, presents a cogitative discussion of the matter, a welcome voice in the chatter surrounding this prescient issue. A sparse, witty play, “Dead Man’s Cell Phone” depends heavily on script and acting, and the play delivers on both fronts. A woman and a man are seated in a café, and the man’s cell phone begins to ring. He does not answer. After many annoying rings, the woman finally answers his phone for him and realizes that he is, in fact, dead. Kitty Steffens softly but enthusiastically plays the considerate (to a fault), endearing woman, Jean. She ends up toting the man’s phone with her, eventually piecing his life together. This woman isn’t satisfied by sim-

KITTY STEFFENS co-starred in “Dead Man’s Cell Phone” at the Lawrence Arts Center, 940 N.H. ply letting his callers know that he’s deceased; she’s proactive and takes it upon herself to console, flatter and even lie in order to soften the blow of the man’s death. Among the dead man’s first callers is his mother. Jeanne

Averill plays a pugnacious, determined Mrs. Gottlieb. Averill expertly draws out laughs, enlivening the stage with her bravado. Her stern, half-mournful, half-capricious demeanor picks apart Jean’s good nature bit by bit,

fueling moments of delightful discomfort. Doogin Brown stiffly but assertively plays the dead man, the defeatist, but visionary Gordon, also situated opposite Jean’s compassion. This man died

There’s plenty for Lawrence singles to do on Valentine’s Day By Chansi Long and Trevan McGee

Valentine’s Day is that special time of year when couples young and old celebrate their commitment to each other through heartfelt gifts, thoughtful acts of kindness, expensive dinners and momentary pauses in the incessant bickering that has come to define their relationships. But for the single people of the world, Valentine’s Day is a cruel, exclusionary holiday — a reminder of one’s loneliness and society’s ability to define happiness as being connected to someone else. For those of you tired of the holiday and eager to do something other than the traditional celebrations, we’ve assembled a short list.

For the emotional masochist Blue Valentine at Liberty Hall 4:30 p.m., 7 p.m., 9:25 p.m. There isn’t a more fitting movie for the sad bastard than this film, which centers on a couple’s disintegrating marriage while at the same time flashing back to the events that brought them together in the first place. Take a friend, or at the very least notify loved ones of your whereabouts, because this movie is a doozy. Alternative: Facebook stalk If you’re a glutton for punishment, you might as well go the full monty. Look up past exes and muse over the increasing number of friends who are married/pregnant, hopefully in that order. Alcohol is optional; complete lack of dignity is required. For the musician Karaoke Idol, 10 p.m. at the Jazzhaus, 926 /12 Mass. Cover: $1. For those of us who love to make other people cringe from our own lack of talent, Valentine’s Day is the perfect day for self-degradation. And nothing smells of humiliation like competitive Karaoke. Warm up your vocal cords and bash at

Answer : INWARD ENOUGH FALLOW BUZZER SCORCH HEATER The lazy reporter didn’t think deadlines were —


in the play, for that matter — are tight, immediate and spin an effective yarn. Perhaps most remarkable is the apt selection of this play over others — it sparkles with evocative lines, it muses on how lovers and families navigate love in a world of chance connections and disconnections, it bristles with dark but pointed humor, and it touches on the values that have been eschewed or obtained in modernity’s brave new world. Simply put, “Dead Man’s Cell Phone” educates, imagines, surprises and entertains in perfect proportions.

If you yearn to plunge even further into the abyss of unplanned public performance, head down to the Bottleneck for Original Music Mondays. your dignity with a couple shots of Jägermeister before shuffling onto the stage of the Jazzhaus for Karaoke Idol. Alternative 1: Original Music Mondays, 9 p.m. at the Bottleneck. If you yearn to plunge even further into the abyss of unplanned public performance, head down to the Bottleneck for Original Music Mondays: an open mic night featuring blues, grass, acoustic and country genres that invites all self-proclaimed musicians to stumble to the stage and broadcast their talent — or lack thereof. Alternative 2: KU’s Faculty Recital, 7:30 p.m. at Swarthout Hall, 530 Naismith Drive. If you are more a voyeur than a performer, KU’s Faculty Recital might be the event for you. The recital features Julia Broxholm, soprano, and Richard Reber, pianist.

For the artist “Fresh Start, Works in Progress,” 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Lawrence Arts Center

If you consider yourself the artistic type, the Lawrence Arts Center has a new exhibit titled “Fresh Start, Works in Progress.” The title was inspired by the launch of the new year, but it could also reflect the nature of your love life. The display will highlight incomplete projects, including sketches, mock-ups and resource materials. Alternative: Crafts and chocolate For those who miss the second grade, when Valentine’s Day parties included cupcakes, candy and a stack of colorful Valentine’s Day cards, consider hosting your own party this year. Stock up on paper stock, tissue paper, scissors, Elmer’s glue and glitter. Then invite friends over to construct homemade Valentine’s cards. Offer chocolates, cupcakes and champagne for refreshments.

For the workaholic Luxury/Indulgence Day For people who are able to disconnect romance from Valentine’s Day, the day should provide a great opportunity to treat yourself. Buy yourself something you wouldn’t normally — splurge on a massage and spend the rest of the day relaxing. Or buy a new book and take shelter at a table in your favorite coffee shop to spend a chunk of the day reading.

Alternative: Anti-Valentine’s Day Movie Night Rent or Netflix a few movies that challenge the romantic genre. Some suggestions include “War of the Roses,” a bitter comedy about a collapsing marriage, and “Looking for Mr. Goodbar,” which features a knife-wielding Richard Gere and a sexaddicted Diane Keaton in a romance gone wrong. Other movies that highlight the demise of romantic relationships include “Leaving Las Vegas,” “Requiem For a Dream” and “Annie Hall.”

For the cheapskate Free Argentine Tango Open Práctica, 8-10 p.m. at Signs of Life. If you know how to dance, or even if you don’t, Lawrence Tango Dancers host a gathering that provides free tango instruction. Knowledge on tango is not a requirement — neither is a partner. Alternative: $1 Bowling Night, 9 p.m.-1 a.m. Hillcrest Bowling, 933 Iowa. Get a few friends together and spend the night wearing ugly shoes and throwing strikes at the local bowling alley. Each game only costs $1, so you’ll be able to devote the rest of your money toward alcohol — in case you need to blame that string of gutter balls on something other than your poor coordination.

START AT THE BEGINNING What’s the first question you ask yourself when you’re ready to buy a home? It should be, “How much can I afford?” Without that crucial piece of information, you can’t even begin your search. Figure your monthly income and debt payments, order your credit reports, and determine how much you can put down. Now, apply for pre-approval from a number of lenders, to shop for the best interest rate and terms. You can choose fixed or adjustable rate, and a conventional or government or jumbo loan, among the most common types of mortgages. Now, what do you want out of your new home? Want a location within the city, right downtown, in the suburbs, or a rural setting? How many bedrooms and

bathrooms, in a single family home or townhouse or condo? Now that you’ve figured out what you’re looking for and what you can afford, locate the neighborhoods that satisfy your requirements. An area real estate agent can give you information about schools, your work commute, and proximity to shopping and recreation. Find your agent through referrals and interviews to get the right “chemistry.” You can browse listings online, but the agent should be able to provide a list of suitable properties right away. Make appointments for tours and attend open houses if available. My upcoming column will guide you through the next steps!

Plant a seed with kids Projects can kick off gardening with youths Garden Calendar


Antiques may pose controversy today By Terry Kovel

Opinions change with time. Throughout the past 40 years, it has become popular to “think green.” But our ancestors had to hunt for food and killed buffalo, deer and passenger pigeons, making some species endangered and others extinct. Toys reflected scenes of everyday life, so it is not surprising to find an antique child’s plate with what we consider a frightening decoration. Some small plates were made with the letters of the alphabet embossed on the border. These alphabet plates were popular from the 1780s to the 1860s. The letters taught a child to read, and the center design usually included a nursery rhyme, proverb or wise saying. Some plates pictured a mother or father doing everyday jobs like cooking or sewing or farming. Alphabet plates were made of pottery, porcelain, glass or metal and sometimes came with matching mugs. One early-19th-century English plate that recently auctioned caused comment among the bidders. The transfer-decorated Staffordshire plate pictures hunters in a canoe surrounded by swimming seals. The hunters are beating the seals to death with clubs so they can sell the fur. Canada banned hunting baby harp seals in the water in 1984, and Russia banned killing baby seals in 2009.

sometimes joke about being trained to pull weeds in the garden before I could walk. My passion for growing plants did begin at a tender age, but I am thankful for the “chores” that led to a hobby and a career. If you have kids or work with kids, you have a great opportunity to teach them the joys of nurturing plants and producing food for themselves and others. New school gardens, youth organization gardens and community gardens may offer additional opportunities for adults interested in gardening to work with youth. Lots of free and cheap resources exist to help you get started. Just keep it simple to start, visit the library and the Internet, and follow my simple tips.

Involve kids in the planning process. Flip through seed catalogs (free from most seed companies) to pick out plants to grow or visit your local garden center. Create a template to lay your garden out to scale. If the garden will be 10 feet-by-10 feet, draw a 10-inch square to represent the garden. Thinking about mature plant sizes, cut out shapes to represent plants and move them around on the paper. Example: a bush green bean plant will be 1012 inches in diameter when fully grown, so you could cut 1-inch diameter circles to represent the plants. Plants like tomatoes will vary in size depending on whether you use cages or trellising systems. Try to plan accordingly. Remember to leave space in the garden for footpaths. Gardens that are less than 4 feet wide are generally thought to be narrow enough to reach everything from the outside, but a wider garden will need paths. If the garden is planted early enough, you can double-crop in some areas. Cool-season crops like peas and radishes will die off or go to seed when daytime temperatures get too high. Use these areas to plant pumpkins or sweet potatoes if there is room once the cool-season crops finish their life cycle. Butterfly gardens are a great, fun alternative to vegetable gardens when working with kids, too. The same tips apply, except for the parts about eating. Introduce kids to planting before you get to the garden. Bean seeds held against the sides of a clear cup or jar with wet paper towels will usually sprout in about a week. Roots come first, then a sprout that pushes the seed leaves up to the light. This is a great visual of how plants grow. My favorite project to see how seeds grow is popular with kids (and adults) of all ages. Put about one-fourth of a cup of grass seed in the toe of a kneehigh nylon stocking, then add potting soil to form a ball about the size of a softball. Avoid mixing the grass seed with the soil for best results. Tie the stocking off, soak it with water, and set it on a cup of water with the loose

Q: Jennifer Smith/Journal-World Photos

KELLY HAYES works on a project for Get Growing, a class recently offered by K-State Research and Extension agent Jennifer Smith to the Douglas County Child Development Association. Crafts and community gardens are great ways to introduce kids to gardening.

Twenty years ago, I bought two antique Windsor chairs from a friend for $1,500. A dealer recently appraised them for $1,250 each. I have been unable to find any information about the cabinetmaker. His mark is machinecarved on both chairs and reads “John M. Bair, Hanover, Penna.”

end of the stocking in the cup to work as a wick. Tie off ears and a nose with rubber bands, glue on eyes, etc., to add some fun. Annual ryegrass seeds sprout in about a week and grow quickly. Trim the grass on the seed heads (haircuts) and fertilize to extend the life. The grass will appear yellow when it needs fertilizer.

Grow things kids like to eat and a few things kids might like to eat. I attribute my love for Brussels sprouts to having eaten ones that I had grown before ever try-

ing others. Still, I would avoid planting Brussels sprouts in a youth garden the first year. On the other hand, I have seen fifthgraders fight over radishes that they had grown. (There were plenty for everyone, they just all wanted as many as possible). Plant a themed garden (pizza from tomatoes, peppers, onion, garlic and herbs) or make fun dishes from the garden produce. Let kids taste their homegrown tomatoes side-by-side with tomatoes from the grocery store. Make veggie “sculptures” and encourage kids to eat all the produce used in their artwork.

Kids can pull weeds. They might complain. I know I sure did. But they might also enjoy quality time with an adult they respect while they are doing it, or the team effort of working with other kids to complete the project. Some day they may look forward to pulling weeds and to the memories of the people they pulled weeds with before. — Jennifer Smith is the Horticulture Extension Agent for K-State Research and Extension in Douglas County. She can be reached at 843-7058.

The machine-carved marks indicate that your chairs are not antiques. Bair’s Cabinet Shop, the name of John M. Bair’s business, operated from 1933 to 1964 in Hanover and later Abbottstown, Pa. So your chair dates to Bair’s early years in Hanover. Bair’s made high-quality reproductions of antique furniture, especially Colonial Revival furniture. So your chairs date from the 1930s at the earliest. They’re not antique, but that doesn’t mean they’re not well-made chairs worth the price you paid or more. Photo

THIS 1880S child’s plate has letters around the edge to teach the alphabet and a picture in the center to display a method of hunting seals. The plate sold at a Skinner auction in Boston for $148, below auction estimate, perhaps because the picture of a seal hunt is controversial today.
