There’s a new chief in town


Task force clear on choices, mum on advice By Mark Fagan

Nissan is operating on a different sales strategy than it does with its traditional vehicles. Interested customers put in a request online for more information. From there they can buy the car. Then the local dealership will come to the house to set up the charging system. “This is a 100 percent consumer demand,” Rowe said.

After eight months of compiling, studying, touring, reading, assessing, writing, meeting, discussing, calculating and otherwise preparing to define a vision for the future of the Lawrence school district’s elementary schools, members of an appointed task force now find themselves left with a single responsibility.

The district is facing an estimated budget cut of $3 million because of declines in revenue from the state. But board members did form the task force back in May, an effort to build a long-term and

NEW LAWRENCE POLICE CHIEF TARIK KHATIB was front and center Friday at City Hall after his new position was announced.

Khatib outlines priorities for department .By George Diepenbrock

As he was vying for the police chief job with three other candidates from outside Lawrence, Tarik Khatib talked about both knowing the Lawrence Police Department from the inside out and still bringing in new ideas from the outside. After City Manager David Corliss tapped Khatib on Friday for the job, the nearly 19-year veteran who has worked only in the Lawrence department spoke about how he sees his responsibilities in replacing longtime chief Ron Olin, who retired from the job last year.

“I’m here to serve the community, serve the officers and never violate that trust,” he said. Khatib, a 1991 Kansas University graduate who started as a Lawrence officer in June 1992, sat down with the Journal-World to answer questions about his priorities as the new police chief and his career. You’ve talked about Lawrence’s crime rate being higher when compared to other Kansas and university cities. For reducing that, what will be your top priorities? Khatib: Globally, our top priority is going to be continuing on the

program we’ve already started, and that is increasing our public interaction and engagement with the community. We’ve met privately with various different individuals and some groups, and I want to take that up a notch and meet with a larger percentage of people and get from them what their expectations are for the police department over the coming months and years. Specifically about the crime rate, three things we need to do to reduce that is work on education of victims, work on education of the community as far as how to prevent being a victim of a crime.

Also to develop strategies in the police department whether through efficiencies or articulation of perhaps more resources at some point down the line, like how we get about solving crime and holding the 10 percent of people who do 90 percent of the crime accountable. A third component’s going to be environmental design, getting involved in education of the community about how we can create a safe environment so those crimes don’t occur. Those three components are going to be something we look at. Please see KHATIB, page 9A

Group energizes talks on car-charging stations City, KU explore options to power electric vehicles By Christine Metz

Months before President Barack Obama called for drastically increasing the number of electric cars on the road, an informal group in Lawrence was meeting to find a way to do just that. The group — with membership including Kansas University researchers, Westar Energy, government officials and a car dealership — is looking at what infrastructure needs to be in place to make the electric car a reality in Lawrence. And according to the group’s members, that “Jetsons”-like image of plugging in at home to power up your car isn’t as far off as some

would think. By the end of this year, Kansas University plans to have the first recharging station in Lawrence. And Briggs Nissan, 2300 W. 29th Terrace, is among the third wave of car dealerships that would offer the 100 percent electric Nissan LEAF. Exactly when they will come to Lawrence hasn’t been determined, the car dealership’s business development manager, Chris Rowe, said. “Being that Lawrence is a very green community, there is an advantage of having it in this community,” Rowe said. “I’m a firm believer it is going to work here.”

More electric options Electric cars are slowly moving

Being that Lawrence is a very green community, there is an advantage of having it in this community. I’m a firm believer it is going to work here.” — Chris Rowe, business development manager for Briggs Nissan in Lawrence into the mainstream. During his State of the Union address, Obama called for a million new electric cars to be on the road by 2015. Helping achieve that goal are a number of electric vehicles being offered by major automakers. Along with Nissan, Ford has plans for the 2012 all-electric Focus. And Chevy is offering the Volt, a hybrid that has an electric motor with a 40mile range and a gasoline engine that kicks in for longer drives. Owners can charge the vehicle from home.

Kansas Insurance Commissioner discusses health reform changes By Shaun Hittle

Kansas Insurance Commissioner Sandy Praeger spent an hour Saturday morning explaining how the federal health care reforms will affect Kansans. Individual mandates, lifetime limits, Medicaid and online “exchanges” highlighted Praeger’s discussion of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act at Lawrence Public Library, 707 Vt.

About 70 people attended the event, sponsored by the Douglas County Democratic Party. Praeger answered questions about spePraeger cific provisions and explained how Kansas has been working with the insurance industry to satisfy the law’s requirements. Praeger acknowledged efforts in the state and on the federal level to repeal the reforms, but said “it’s

Charging stations may come soon CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1A

showroom is, in part, due to improved technology that keeps the electric car running longer and faster. But it also has a lot to do with basic economics. “Gas prices keep going up. And they are just not going back down,” said Eileen Horn, sustainability coordinator for the city of Lawrence and Douglas County. “And I think that is playing on people’s awareness.”

Charging stations As new electric car models come on the market, communities must answer how they will be charged away from home. Last fall, the city of Lawrence applied for a grant that would have allowed for construction of a charging station. It turned out the grant wasn’t quite geared toward that kind of project, so the city withdrew its application, Horn said. “We don’t want to build one that doesn’t get utilized. We are in a holding pattern, waiting to see how quickly Lawrence residents adopt this new technology,” Horn said. But Lawrence could see its first charging station soon. It will be part of a 2,000square-foot addition to the Chamney Farm on KU’s West Campus. The building, the construction of which is part of architecture professor Dan Rockhill’s Studio 804 class, will be a LEED certified green building that will be a space for demonstration projects on new technologies. The site is along Bob Billings Parkway, between Iowa Street and Crestline Drive. Along with technology that creates, stores and monitors energy, the building will be able to charge electric vehicles, said Carey Novak, who is director of business relations and development for KU. The charging station will be used primarily for electric vehicles designed by researchers at KU. Whether it will be available to the public is still being discussed, Novak said. The local Nissan dealership also has plans to build a charging station once it starts selling the LEAF. The city is keeping an eye on spots that would make for good charging stations, Horn said. Those sites will likely be where people congregate and where they can burn time while their car charges. Electric corridor The informal Lawrence group has asked Lawrence Public Library, 707 Vt., to consider a charging station in its parking plans for the library expansion, Novak said. It also thinks it would make sense to place them at large stores such as Target, Best Buy, Walmart and Dillons. Once there are several stations in Lawrence, the next step would be to set up a network of charging stations between Topeka and Kansas City so people can commute with electric cars. “We could very easily with not a lot of investment have a 60-mile (electric vehicle) corridor. And Lawrence is right in the middle,” Novak said. Embracing electric cars is one more way Lawrence can become a nexus of greenminded innovation, Novak said. “We have got a wonderful opportunity in making Lawrence this huge test lab of developing technologies,” he said. — Reporter Christine Metz can be reached at 832-6352.

Howard John Baumgartel Jr. Howard John Baumgartel, Jr., beloved father, grandfather, professor, humanitarian, activist for social justice, and friend, died on Saturday, February 12, 2011 at the Montebello Assisted Living Facility in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He died on the 202nd anniversary of the birth of Abraham Lincoln, whose picture hung on his wall his entire adult life. Howard grew up in western Pennsylvania and attended Yale University and Wabash College, where he earned his bachelor’s degree, before joining the U.S. Navy in 1942. During the Second World War, Howard served in the Pacific aboard the “USS Ringgold” as a gunnery officer. He participated in many battles, most notably at Tarawa. While on leave in 1945, Howard married Nancy Taggart in Indianapolis, who became the mother of his three children. They honeymooned in Chicago at the same hotel where Lauren Bacall and Humphrey Bogart were spending their honeymoon. After being mustered out of the Navy, he earned an MBA at Harvard University. After working in investment banking, Howard decided to become an academician and taught at the University of Kansas (KU) for three years before attending graduate school at the University of Michigan, where he earned his Ph.D. in 1955. Howard returned to KU and worked in the Psychology Department and School of Business until he retired in 1988. Howard made many notable contributions to academic life at KU. The single largest of these was his starting and developing the Human Relations program at the university, a program based on the human potential movement of the 1950s and 1960s. Howard’s professional life took him to India six times, twice as a Fulbright Scholar. Each time he worked toward the economic development of the nation and made lifelong friends, especially at the Xavier

Labor Relations Institute in Jamshedpur. For four years, Howard served as an assistant dean in the College of Arts and Sciences at KU. Howard married Marguerite Myers Kerfoot, a professor of art education at KU, in 1964 in Calcutta, and they lived together happily in Lawrence, Kansas until she died in October 2009. Marguerite brought three children of her own into Howard’s extended family. After retiring, Howard devoted his time to many interests, worked in a hospice program and began attending various churches in the Lawrence area. He and Nancy had joined the Mount Oread Friends Meeting in Lawrence in the late 1950s and, as his retirement years passed, he attended that meeting more and more regularly. In 2009, Howard suffered a major stroke and moved into Brandon Woods, an assisted living facility in Lawrence and was joined there by Marguerite a few months later. In December of 2009, he moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico, to live closer to his family and shared with them many wonderful times in the year before he died. Howard is survived by six children: Mona Baumgartel, John Baumgartel, Tom Baumgartel, Bill Kerfoot, Charles Kerfoot, and John Kerfoot; ten grandchildren: on the Baumgartel side, Elaine, Sylvie, Jeremiah, and Lukas, and on the Kerfoot side, Chris, Kerry, Alex, Katie, Joshua, and Travis; and five greatgrandchildren. There will be a memorial service for Howard this spring in Lawrence, KS. Contributions may be made in Howard’s name to the Peace and Justice Scholarship that he started in the 1990s, a program that helps fund graduate students working in whatever small ways to lessen conflict and violence in our world: KU Endowment, P.O.

Largest crowd yet descends on Capitol

Stem-cell transplant may help CAPITOL woman fighting scleroderma BRIEFING

A state Capitol thrown into political chaos swelled for a fifth day with nearly 70,000 protesters, as supporters of Republican efforts to scrap the union rights of state workers challenged pro-labor protesters faceto-face for the first time and GOP leaders insisted again Saturday there was no room for compromise. A few dozen police officers stood between supporters of Republican Gov. Scott Walker on the muddy east lawn of the Capitol and the much larger group of pro-labor demonstrators who surrounded them. The protest was peaceful as both sides exchanged chants of “Pass the bill! Pass the bill!” and “Kill the bill! Kill the bill!” “Go home!” union supporters yelled at Scott Banning-Bohmann Lemke, a 46-year-old machine parts salesman from Cedarburg who wore a hard hat and carried a sign that read “If you don’t like it, quit” on one side, and “If you don’t like that, try you’re fired” on the other.

By Karrey Britt

Lawrence resident Kim Banning-Bohmann was diagnosed with scleroderma, a life-threatening disease that causes hardening of the skin, about one year ago.

By fall, Kim’s body was hardening from her toes to her jaw. Her arms felt like a plastic doll’s arm. The disease also had moved into her esophagus, mak-

Libya, Yemen crack down


Security forces in Libya and Yemen fired on prodemocracy demonstrators Saturday as the two hardline regimes struck back against the wave of protests that has already toppled autocrats in Egypt and Tunisia. At least 15 died when police shot into crowds of mourners in Libya’s second-largest city, a hospital official said. Even as Bahrain’s king bowed to international pressure and withdrew tanks to allow demonstrators to retake a symbolic square in the capital, Libya’s Moammar Gadhafi and Yemen’s Ali Abdullah Saleh made clear they plan to stamp out opposition and not be dragged down by the reform movements that have grown in nations from Algeria to Djibouti to Jordan. Libyans returned to the street for a fifth straight day of protests against Gadhafi, the most serious uprising in his 42-year reign, despite estimates by human rights groups of 84 deaths in the North African country — with 35 on Friday alone.

CSI on wheels: Police department gets new forensic vehicle By George Diepenbrock

Zach Thomas, a Lawrence police detective, steps out of the back of the department’s new ambulance-type vehicle. Thomas, who inspects crime scenes, has just spent time inside opening various drawers and cabinets that house everything from tools that officers will use to dig bullets out of walls to a chamber used to preserve fingerprints. The department’s new forensic investigations vehicle, purchased with a $155,000 Homeland Security grant, is much larger than the old one the department had. It will allow investigators to take more tools to crime scenes and, it is hoped, enable

“Opinions are like belly buttons. Everyone’s got one. The only important belly button to me right now is the governor’s.” — Budget Director Steve Anderson when asked his opinion on the role of state government in funding higher education.


Scientists have estimated the first cosmic census of planets in our galaxy and the numbers are astronomical: at least 50 billion planets in the Milky Way. At least 500 million of those planets are in the not-too-hot, not-too-cold zone where life could exist. The numbers were extrapolated from the early results of NASA’s planet-hunting Kepler telescope. Kepler science chief William Borucki says scientists took the number of planets they found in the first year of searching a small part of the night sky and then made an estimate on how likely stars are to have planets. Kepler spots planets as they pass between Earth and the star it orbits. So far Kepler has found 1,235 candidate planets, with 54 in the Goldilocks zone, where life could possibly exist.

Thomas said while giving a tour of the vehicle. The department bought the Ford F-550 cab and chassis from Laird Noller Automotive in Lawrence, and Brown Cargo Van Inc. of Lawrence constructed the chamber, which was designed with input from detectives and city garage staff members. Investigators have been using it for the last couple of months, including at a December armed robbery at Walmart, 3300 Iowa. But it also can be deployed across the state to help respond to emergencies, such as a tornado, Thomas said. Lawrence police are close to finalizing an agreement to allow other agencies in northeast Kansas to use the vehicle in certain situations. Thomas demonstrated several

new features of the vehicle that investigators will use. The size of the chamber will allow officers to meet inside and discuss aspects of a case while they’re still at the scene, and there is a bathroom inside, which is important for detectives who can frequently be at a crime scene for hours and hours, he said. A large deck on top of the chamber will give investigators a chance to get up high to take photos, and they have new battery-powered portable light sets that can illuminate an area after dark. “To find evidence we have to be able to see,” Thomas said. “Lighting at a crime scene is very important.”

Armed with a Legislative Post Audit showing “numerous inconsistencies and inaccuracies” in the way officials used data to tout the success of a taxpayer-paid program to provide “affordable airfares” out of Wichita, one would think conservatives would be ready to cut the $5 million annual appropriation. One would be wrong. During House Appropriations Committee action, Rep. Doug Gatewood, D-Columbus, proposed cutting the annual appropriation in half and requiring local officials match the state’s portion. He was joined by some Democrats and some Republicans. One of those was Rep. Virgil Peck, R-Tyro, who said officials from the Regional Economic Area Partnership (REAP), who were criticized in the audit for a lack of accountability for the state airfare funds, came across in meetings as “rather obnoxious” and “cavalier.” But other Republicans, most notably those from Wichita and nearby areas, defeated Gatewood's proposal and recommended providing the full $5 million. Appropriations Chairman Marc Rhoades, R-Newton, provided the key vote against Gatewood, which produced an 11-11 tie and killed the proposed cut. Gov. Sam Brownback, a Republican, also supports the $5 million appropriation.

State rep. mulls at-will versus civil service During a briefing on state employee salaries, Rep. Kasha Kelley, R-Arkansas City, wondered how state employees received civil service protection when Kansas is an “at-will” state, which means an employer doesn’t need a good cause to fire a worker.

Dr. Richard Burt, chief of immunotherapy for autoimmune diseases, said the transplant has been successful in reversing symptoms in the skin, so normal elasticity returns, as well as muscle function. It also can improve internal organ functions. Kim is renting an apartment about five blocks from the hospital, and friends have been taking turns spending time with her — about a week at a time. On Jan. 31, she had her first chemotherapy treatment, and then she endured daily injections of Neupogen to help accelerate stem-cell growth. On Feb. 10, her stem cells were harvested during a four-hour procedure where she was hooked up to a machine by a catheter through her neck. Doctors wanted to harvest 2 million stem cells, and they got 7 million. “That was a good thing because I didn’t have to do it for a second day,” Kim said. She returned home Feb. 12 to spend a week with family

It honestly was the hardest thing I’ve done so far. With all of the catheters, all of the needles — that was the worst thing. I mean I just sat there and sobbed.” — Kim Banning-Bohmann, on shaving her head and friends and celebrate her wedding anniversary. “I am just a lot more tired and don’t have the stamina that I had before, which is really hard for me because I’ve always been someone who is kind of like the Energizer bunny — even kind of with this disease. But now it’s just wiping me out,” she said. Kim said her most difficult day was Monday when she reached up to do her hair and it started coming out in handfuls. On Tuesday, she had her stylist shave it off. “It honestly was the hardest thing I’ve done so far. With all of the catheters, all of

the needles — that was the worst thing. I mean I just sat there and sobbed,” she said. Now when she goes out she sports a wig that contains hair from her younger sister, Karin Feltman, and two other donors, and a hat. Kim leaves for Chicago on Monday and is facing five days of chemotherapy, followed by the stem-cell transplant on Feb. 28. She expects to come home between March 8 and March 15, if all goes well. She has met a Marine who is stationed in Hawaii who is going through the process at the same time. They became fast friends and compare notes on how they are feeling. He lost his wife five years ago to breast cancer, and they have two children. “You think you have it rough and then you hear other people’s stories,” she said. “I can’t imagine going through what he went through.” — Health reporter Karrey Britt can be reached at 832-7190.

Model citizens: Enthusiasts gather for train show By Shaun Hittle

ONLINE: Watch the video at

The trains chug by a Ford factory, through a mountain, past “Gretchen’s Grains,” and by a railroad town complete with a general store and a “Ma’s Place” diner. But it’s easy to miss a few of the somewhat hidden details on the tracks at Saturday’s 10th Annual Lawrence Model Railroad Club Train Show. That’s what club member

Bob Lagerstrom is for. Stationed in the middle of a large “HO” scale train track, where model trains circled around inside Building 21 at the Douglas County Fairgrounds, Lagerstrom let visitors in on some of the little secrets — such as the group of baby polar bears devouring a hiker in the woods. “A young Republican,” jokes Lagerstrom, who’s all smiles Saturday while sharing his love of model trains with more than 700 people who attended.

Steve Meseraull, club president, said it takes a lot of effort to put on the show that benefits the Lawrence Interdenominational Nutrition Kitchen. The event raises about $1,000, plus a truckload of canned goods. But the real payoff for the train enthusiasts such as Meseraull is the impact on the kids. “You work and you work and then you see the kids,” he said. “Their eyes get so big.” Some of the parents were wide-eyed as well. Michael Black of Lawrence

admitted he was probably having as much fun as his 6year-old son, Jude. “I’m kind of reliving my childhood,” said Black, who was an avid model-train collector as a kid. He spent the afternoon showing Jude the trains, which elicited enough “oohs” and “ahs” to convince the duo they may need to set up a track at home. “His birthday’s coming up,” Black said. — Reporter Shaun Hittle can be reached at 832-7173.

Capitol Briefing: Proposed pay cut shocked workers CONTINUED FROM PAGE 3A

Kansas Legislative Research Department, said that civil service was a turn-of-the-century reform to make sure public service employees weren’t hired and fired based on patronage but on whether they were able to do a good job. By the way, Conroy’s report showed the average classified employee in Kansas is 47 years old with 14 years of service and making $38,049 per year.

Proposed 7.5% pay cut shocked employees With Gov. Sam Brownback’s budget director sitting behind her, Becki Bohnenblust, from the State University Classified and Support Staff Council, made some emotional comments last week to the regents about the reaction she and other state employees had when a group of Republicans on the House Appropriations Committee proposed a 7.5 percent state employee pay cut. “The wind seemed to be knocked right out of our sails,” she said. Afterward, budget director Steve Anderson noted to the regents that the 7.5 percent pay cut was not the governor’s

idea. The pay cut for rank-andfile state workers was later removed from the Appropriations Committee bill.

Bill would restrict unions in politics House Bill 2130 would prohibit labor organizations from collecting dues for political activities and would prohibit any public employee organization from endorsing candidates or spending any of its income from dues on political activities. The Kansas Chamber of Commerce and Americans for Prosperity-Kansas support the measure, while Kansas Organization of State Employees, Kansas AFL-CIO, and Kansas National Education Association oppose it.

Marathon participants take to the dance floor for KU Pediatrics By Joe Preiner

ONLINE: See the video at

More than 400 people turned out with a little Saturday night fever for the third annual Kansas University Dance Marathon. The event, which has been held at the Ambler Student Recreation Fitness Center on the KU campus since 2008, raises money and awareness for Children’s Miracle Network. The student-run organization donates exclusively to KU Pediatrics. The turnout, nearly twice what it was for last year’s KU Dance Marathon, had Ellen Hernly, the associate director of external operations, busy from the moment the 12-hour fundraiser began. “It’s been really great just to get to know the families,” Hernly said Saturday. “Especially on such a personal level.” Live music, dancing, relay races and various other activities helped keep the energy levels high for the students and children in attendance. Chasity Tower watched as her two daughters, Makenzie and Hallee, raced up and down the gym floor in burlap sacks. Both daughters are involved in the Children’s Miracle Network. “This is awesome,” she said smiling. The goal Saturday, aside from entertaining everyone involved, was to raise $60,000. While the total wouldn’t be known until the event’s end, which was early this morning, Hernly said she was optimistic the goal would be met. “It’s great that all the money


Road work planned this week By Christine Metz

Lawrence ● Kasold Drive is narrowed to one lane in each direction as crews work to reconstruct the roadway between Clinton Parkway and 31st Street. ● From 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. weekdays, Indiana Street will have no parking and is closed to through traffic from Sixth Street to Eighth Street and Third Street to Sixth Street. Work is expected to be finished by the end of February. Douglas County ● Douglas County Road 9 is closed between U.S. Highway 24-40 and Interstate 70. The road will be closed so crews can work on the bridge construction.

The section will be closed for about two months. U.S. Highway 59 ● North 200 Road is closed at U.S. Highway 59 for frontage road construction work. The road will be tied to the new frontage road that runs parallel to the new U.S. Highway 59. Work is scheduled to be completed in late 2012. Interstate 70 ● A bridge replacement project is under way for the 142nd Street bridge spanning the Kansas Turnpike in Leavenworth and Wyandotte counties. The northbound and southbound lanes on 142nd Street will be closed between Kansas Avenue and Riverview Avenue.

Federal Election Commission says Kobach missing Congressional campaign reports


HUTCHINSON — The Federal Election Commission has notified Secretary of State Kris Kobach that he has missing reports from his Congressional campaign. Kobach told The Hutchinson News the campaign account for his unsuccessful 2004 bid for the 3rd Congressional District seat is

essentially shut down. But the FEC said the account is still opened. The last quarterly report for Kobach for Congress was filed in 2008. Since then, the FEC has issued eight failure-to-file-report notices to Kobach for Congress. Typically, a campaign report to the

that people from Lawrence and the surrounding area donates goes right back into the community,” she said. KU sophomore Amir Bachelani and freshman Matthew Coombs both took time away from schoolwork to attend the annual event. “Having all these kids come out, it’s very inspirational,” Coombs said. “To know that we’re doing whatever little we can to help them out.” Bachelani said it was an enjoyable break from the usual weekend activities. “It’s def initely a good cause,” Bachelani said. “It’s completely worth it. We’re having a blast.” The event was set to conclude about 5 a.m. today.

FEC details how money is disbursed when an account is closed. That report has not been filed for Kobach for Congress. Kobach said some money was returned to contributors and other money went to candidates. He said he hopes to get the reports filed in a few months.

Khatib discusses plans for LPD CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1A

You talk about interacting with the public. Do you have an overall philosophy about being transparent with the public? Khatib: My overall philosophy is if I can’t provide you, the public, with the information you need to make decisions about public safety, about other things that affect your lives from a public safety point of view, then I’ve failed in my mission. A lot of the things we’re doing is just increasing access to information. If you look at our website, we’ve redesigned that. And it’s a work in progress. It’s like when they launch a new ship. They put the hull in the water after the generator’s in and it’s watertight, and then they continue to build the masts and the stairways and whatnot. That’s what we’re trying to do with our program. We’re trying to put the hull in the water and then build upon it, so it’s not a complete picture. And it will never be complete. It will always be a continuing project to work on. Some of the things we’re doing now that we can provide is crime mapping. We’re working on pretty soon releasing the previous 48 hours of what police activity in the community has been. So they can see where we’re going, what we’re doing. We continue to post stories about the things our officers are doing in the community, showing our commitment to working with the community and also some of the fine work we’re doing. In addition, we’re also including information on the website that people want to know as far as crime prevention and who to contact if you have questions and those kind of things. You mentioned taking a more active role in environmental design. Is that taking a more active role in security on new building construction? How do you see that working? Khatib: That’s one component, being involved in the


planning. But the other thing is some communities have sent officers to specific training on crime prevention through environmental design. It’s a whole philosophy and a whole theory of how to do that, and they come back to the communities and have forums where builders or homeowners can come in, and we give them information. So there’s informal ways of doing it, there’s also formal ways of doing it. And we’re going to be sending, hopefully, an officer to some of that training coming up and, hopefully, when that officer comes back we can get some of that information digested by us and somehow put out to the community. Could an example be if there are plans for a new apartment building? Khatib: Sure, even simple things. If you put up a solid wood fence, that’s a little less costly in the initial, but that might allow people to hide behind it or interrupt your light pattern. So it’s getting people to understand there’s always tradeoffs with something and that the cheapest way to do something is not always the best way. If you put up a good iron railing fence that you can see through, that gives people less opportunity to hide behind it. Where does the department stand with the level of women officers compared to a national or regional scale? Khatib: It depends on which article you read, but anywhere between 10 percent to 15 percent is how

You’ve spent your entire law enforcement career here in Lawrence. Is there a single person who has had the biggest influence on your career? Khatib: That’s a tough question. I’ve had a career of almost 19 years, and I think there has been multiple people who have had a big influence on my career. Initially, in my earlier days, a person that had a lot of impact was retired Capt. Dan Affalter. I worked a lot for him when I was in the drug unit. I worked for him when I was in detectives, and he was very community-oriented. He believed in police officers interacting with the community and having mem-

bership on community boards and being a representative not just as a police officer, but also as a member of the community. He developed in me a strong investigative ability and mentored me through a lot of those things. Later on in my career, as I got closer to the office of the chief and interacted with the office of the chief, chief Ron Olin had a big impact on me. I learned a lot from him about professionalism, about the importance of relationships with other law enforcement agencies and prosecutors’ offices. And the fact we’re not an isolated law enforcement agency. That it’s a totality that we have to have good relationships with law enforcement across the country and federal agencies to utilize the full force of law enforcement across the nation because crime is not local. It can move around. Those two individuals have had the biggest impact career-wise, in addition to my family, as well. — Reporter George Diepenbrock can be reached at 832-7144. Follow him at

nationally women are represented in law enforcement. Our department now is 6 percent or 7 percent, so clearly we’re below the national average. Some of the things we’re doing to increase that is looking at different ways to target women for recruitment. So if we can get more people in through recruit academies, then there’s a higher likely chance in the future we’re going to have more women in the work force. And we’re also trying to develop role models as women police officers. Of the women police officers we have, how are they becoming role models? (We are looking at how) they are involved in the community so that other females in society can look at them and say, “That’s a positive role model as a female law enforcement officer” and get people interested in wanting to be a law enforcement officer.

Arts value Eliminating the Kansas Arts Commission may cost the state more than it saves.


e don’t envy the budget-balancing act that now faces Gov. Sam Brownback and the Kansas Legislature. Dealing with a $450 million or $500 million budget deficit is no easy task. Spending cuts are needed, but strong arguments are being made that abolishing the Kansas Arts Commission in order to save the state $600,000 next year isn’t the best choice. Earlier this month, Brownback issued an executive order abolishing the Arts Commission and establishing the non-profit Kansas Arts Foundation. He even took the liberty of appointing a board of directors for the new organization. The executive order will take effect on July 1 unless it is rejected by a majority vote in either the Kansas Senate or the Kansas House. The powerful House Appropriations Committee this week supported the governor’s plan, but at least some members of the Senate say that body may challenge the executive order. Many arts supporters across the state are pushing that effort. Perhaps their strongest argument is the potential loss of up to $1.2 million in matching grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Mid-American Arts Alliance. Although Brownback has said the new nonprofit still would be able to obtain those grants, the agencies giving out the money say they don’t know whether the state still would be eligible to draw matching funds. These matching funds are critical to arts in Kansas. At the very least, this question must be resolved before the state moves forward. There are other factors to consider. If the Arts Commission is abolished, Kansas reportedly would be the only state without a state-funded arts agency. Brownback’s vision is that private donors will step up to replace state funding for the arts. However, arts agencies already depend heavily on private givers, and there is stiff competition for donor dollars. Private donors may be able to take up the slack in some parts of the state, but that will be less likely in many rural areas. It’s ironic that Brownback is cutting off state arts funding at the same time he is proposing tax breaks and other efforts to try to reverse the loss of population in rural Kansas. Providing a quality of life that includes art, music and other cultural offerings seems essential to attracting more people to live in those areas. There also is an issue of jobs. In the press release announcing his executive order, Brownback cited the state’s budget shortfall and the fact that 100,000 Kansas are unemployed. Yet, the Kansas Arts Commission contends that the state’s nonprofit arts and cultural sector, is a $153.5 million industry that supports 4,000 full-time equivalent jobs. For those looking at the state’s bottom line, it’s also interesting to note that in the current fiscal year, state funding for the arts amounted to 29 cents per person. Twenty-nine cents. The governor does not have an easy task. If you’re trying to trim the state budget, you have to start somewhere, but state officials should take a hard look at whether eliminating the Kansas Arts Commission actually will be a net gain for the state.

Proud Egyptians have reason for hope CAIRO — The air of hopefulness is so palpable in Egypt’s capital city — as people try to digest what happened to them during their revolution — that it’s easy to become a dreamer. This is Egypt’s interregnum of hope, a period that comes just after “people power” ousted a dictator, but before the meaning of the revolution has become truly clear. At this point, it’s still possible to imagine that Egypt might produce the first democracy the Arab world has known. My Egyptair flight from New York to Cairo was full of young professionals and families eager to get home and feel the difference for themselves. At the airport Wednesday, a young woman selling me a cell-phone SIM card, who was in Tahrir Square during the demonstrations, told me, firmly: “The people have spoken.” She said she was looking forward to voting for the first time for president and parliament; she never bothered before because elections were rigged. Cars course through Tahrir Square once more with drivers oblivious to army tanks parked around the edges. Groups of young people rush about with brooms cleaning up garbage from

the square, while others, wearing plastic gloves, paint the metal railings a bright green along the Kasr el-Nil bridge. In 40 years of visiting Egypt, I’ve never before seen this kind of civic activism. Flowering shrubs have been planted on the roundabout in the middle of the square, which was trashed during the demonstrations. Many cars sport stickers saying “I’m Proud to Be an Egyptian.” Hawkers are selling Egyptian flags, and headbands in the flag’s red, black, and white colors. Off to one side of the square, a

Tahrir Square as Egyptians,” I was told by Hussein Shabka, a sociology professor at the American University of Cairo. He says the demonstrations were not about religion — indeed, Muslim and Christian leaders initially told their followers not to participate — nor were the protests about pan-Arab ideologies. “There were no (traditional) party flags,” Shabka said. “People were chanting, ‘Long live Egypt.”’ The second factor: Egyptians have lost their fear of authoritarian rulers. “Over the past 30 years, the military developed a security apparatus that terrified us all — my generation and my parents,” Shabka said. Egypt’s young rebels confronted this apparatus with a strategy of nonviolence and broke the grip that this paralyzing fear had on society. This improves the chances that the revolution won’t slide back into despotism. No one knows how this revolution will end, and I will be talking to many Egyptians about its prospects. But the leap forward made by Egypt’s young people in the last month can’t be easily dismissed. — Trudy Rubin is a columnist for the Philadelphia Inquirer.

And perhaps an observer might be forgiven for wondering what in the world there is to consider. The request to honor Forrest was made by the Mississippi branch of the Sons of Confederate Veterans, a group often found neck deep in attempts to rewrite and sanitize the odious history of the Confederacy. For what it’s worth, Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour has said he doesn’t think the state legislature will approve the vanity plate. But he rejected a call by the Mississippi NAACP to denounce the idea. “I don’t go

around denouncing people,” he said, piously. Presumably, he would be equally nonjudgmental if his state were to consider similar honors to Osama bin Laden, convicted spy Robert Hanssen or Columbine killers Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold. Their legacies, after all, are combined in Forrest: terrorist, traitor, mass murderer. On April 12, it will be 150 years since the Civil War began. That is the distance from telegraph lines to smart phones, from steam engines to space shuttles, from Lincoln to Obama. And yet even after all that time, some of us are still unable to conquer the moral cowardice exemplified by Gov. Barbour and the Sons of Confederate Veterans. The South fought in defense of racism and slavery. It was soundly defeated, racism and slavery soundly repudiated. You’d think from that loss the South would have learned signal lessons of human rights and human dignity. The past exists for one overriding purpose: to prepare us for the future. It is the great and wise teacher, though its lessons are often purchased at monstrous cost. Such was surely the case with the Civil War: 620,000 lives

small crowd has gathered around a makeshift memorial to the 376 people known to have died during those 18 days. Of course, the obstacles that threaten this dream are legion: Arab society is patriarchal and lends itself to strong rulers; the army, which is now overseeing constitutional reforms, is a product of the old system and profits from it. Moreover, the old regime crushed independent political parties, and the Facebook rebels have so far shown no interest in organizing new ones. The Muslim Brotherhood, while not representing a majority, is by far the best-organized political group. I will examine all of these obstacles during my visit. But two factors make it impossible to dismiss this Arab revolution as doomed to failure. First, it was made in Egypt, which Arabs have traditionally called the “mother of the world.” Historically, Egypt always led the Middle East in politics and culture. Yet, in the last 30 years, the country stagnated and the label became a joke. This revolution has galvanized a powerful wave of national — and civic — pride that was absent for decades. “People went to


Nathan Bedford Forrest was a cotton planter and a trader in horses, cattle and black people. At the outbreak of the Civil War, Forrest, whose business dealings had made him wealthy, raised a cavalry unit to fight for the Confederacy. He is remembered as an instinctive military genius whose daring and unpredictability gave Union forces fits. He is also remembered for leading a rebel band that overwhelmed a Union stronghold, Fort Pillow, Tenn., massacring 300 mostly black soldiers and civilians, including children, after the soldiers had dropped their weapons. According to official reports, black soldiers were nailed to logs, buried alive, gunned down where they stood. Finally, Forrest is remembered as a founder and the first “Grand Wizard” of the Ku Klux Klan. The Klan, of course, is America’s preeminent terrorist group; in its various permutations, it has been responsible for countless acts of violence against African-Americans and others it deemed inferior, including the notorious 1963 church bombing in which four little black girls were killed. This is the legacy of Nathan Bedford Forrest. At this writing, the state of Mississippi is consid-

— 2 percent of the population — lost, the South left devastated. Yet sometimes, you wonder if the South even knows it lost. Because, instead of learning those costly lessons and moving forward, too much of the South has spent too much of the last century and a half denying them and looking backward. It did so first through the expedient of lynch mob violence and Jim Crow laws. Now it clings to discredited 19th-century symbols like driftwood, obsessively reworks history trying to make the facts other than what they are. But the facts are immutable. You wish the South would finally accept that and move on. Instead, too many in that storied region are still absorbed in fighting a war that ended in 1865, seeking to vindicate a cause long ago lost. A man who betrayed this country, founded a terrorist group and committed mass murder is a man unworthy of honor. It is pathetic that that even needs to be said. — Leonard Pitts Jr., winner of the 2004 Pulitzer Prize for commentary, is a columnist for the Miami Herald.

Party to kick off Relay For Life There’s a kickoff party for Relay for Life of Douglas County on Tuesday. Relay For Life is an annual, activity-filled, overnight event that raises awareness and money for the American Cancer Society. This year’s event will be June 10-11 at Free State High School’s track. The track will be lined with luminaries that honor cancer survivors, remember loved ones lost, or to support those fighting the disease. The relay involves teams of eight to 15 participants who raise money between the kickoff party and the event. At the event, team members typically take turns walking around the track for 12 hours and camp out while activities go on throughout the night. Last year, 83 teams participated and raised $174,000. Organizers will be providing information and signing up teams for this year’s Relay For Life at the kickoff party, which is from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the library at Free State High School, 4700 Overland Drive. It’s on a drop-in basis. This year’s theme is “Constructing A Cure — Extreme Makeover Douglas County Edition.” For more information, contact Barb Gorman at 841-7723 or visit

Blame it on ’Rio

Visiting Chalmers inspires Morningstar

By Ben Ward Journal-World Sports Writer

Shots weren’t falling for Kansas University guard Monica Engelman. But even on a frustrating night from the field, an important piece of advice kept Engelman focused. “I’ve been taught, and my coaches have instilled in me, that good shooters always keep shooting,” Engelman said. “Even though I was 1-for-8 or whatever I was, you have to believe in yourself and be there for your teammates to knock some- Engelman thing down.” With KU needing a basket to tie late, coach Bonnie Henrickson didn’t call Engelman’s number. But after the designed play broke down, Engelman found the ball in her hands as the game clock wound down and didn’t hesitate. On a hard drive to the basket, Engelman banked in a contested runner with 1.9 seconds left in regulation to force overtime, and the Jayhawks — bolstered by a rocking crowd of 5,225 — pulled ahead for a 75-70 overtime victory over Missouri on Saturday night at Allen Fieldhouse.

Mario Chalmers, who is spending the NBA All-Star break in Lawrence, stopped by buddy Brady Morningstar’s apartment Friday night. Chalmers, the third-year Miami Heat combo guard who hit the biggest shot in Kansas University basketball history, encouraged his former KU teammate to fire away during Saturday’s Big 12 Conference matinee against Colorado — one attended by NBA Jayhawks Chalmers, Cole Aldrich, Sherron Collins and Xavier Henry. “I told Brady, ‘You’ve got to come out and dominate,’’’ said Chalmers, who spent an hour and a half with his 2008 NCAA title teammate the day before KU’s 89-63 rout of the Buffs in Allen Fieldhouse. Morningstar received the message loud and clear. The 6-foot-4 senior from Lawrence hit four three-pointers in five tries and scored 16 points in the first half as KU blazed to a 48-31 lead. He missed his only shot of the second half, finishing with those 16 points to go with five assists, no turnovers, four rebounds and two steals in 36 minutes. “He (Chalmers) told me to go out and ‘ball’ ... have fun and hit some shots,” Morningstar said after a game in which KU hit 11 of 22 three-pointers to CU’s two of 16. Tyrel Reed (13 points) and Tyshawn Taylor (10) each hit three of four threes, while inside player Markieff Morris exploded for a career-high 26 points and tied a career high with 15 rebounds. “It felt good to hit some shots and was really good to see him,” Morningstar added of Chalmers, who was welcomed by coach Bill Self into the winner’s locker room with Collins, Aldrich and Henry. “I asked the guys to tell the team what they thought. The first thing ’Rio said (was), ‘Yeah, you guys are fun to watch, but you don’t guard anybody,’’’ Self revealed. “That was his way I think of telling the guys, ‘You’ve got a chance, but have got to improve on that end.’ Maybe we took a small step forward today, but it (defense) is still not where it needs to be.” Chalmers’ challenge surely will be accepted by Morningstar, who, along with Taylor, Reed and Elijah Johnson, helped hold highscoring Buff guards Alec Burks (15 points, 6-of-12 shooting) and Cory Higgins (14 points, 5-of-11 shooting) in check. “I think me being on that (2008 NCAA title) team with Mario, I know what he is talking about and where he is coming from

Markieff helps KU put loss behind On a day in which other college basketball giants fell, Kansas University picked itself up, and nobody did a better job of that than the giant of the starting lineup, 6-foot-9 junior Markieff Morris.

Nebraska knocks off No. 3 Texas The Associated Press

Nebraska 70, No. 3 Texas 67 L I N C O L N , N EB . — Count Texas among those impressed by Nebraska’s upset of the Longhorns. Brandon Richardson hit a pair of free throws with 7.2 seconds left to seal the Cornhuskers’ victory on Saturday. Nebraska hadn’t beaten a team ranked in the top three since knocking off No. 3 Missouri, 98-91, in the 1994 Big Eight Conference tournament. After Texas’ three-point attempt fell short at the buzzer, Nebraska students stormed the court and hoisted players on their shoulders. “Man, what a great game,” Nebraska coach Doc Sadler said. “How can you not be excited? It’s a great day for us.” The Cornhuskers’ second win over a Top 25 opponent this season broke Texas’ school record Big 12 winning streak at 11 games. Nebraska downed then-No. 13 Texas A&M, 57-48, on Jan. 29. Texas coach Rick Barnes said this one wasn’t a fluke. “There’s no question Nebraska deserves all the credit because they were a terrific team today,” he said. “Doc Sadler is one of the great guys in this business, and it couldn’t have happened to a better guy. If this helps them to the NCAA Tournament, then it would be great for him. The fans were great, and they definitely deserved to win the game.” TEXAS (23-4) Johnson 4-6 0-0 8, Thompson 1-4 3-7 5, Hamilton 3-16 9-11 18, Balbay 0-1 0-0 0, Joseph 5-12 0-1 13, Lucas 0-0 0-0 0, Brown 7-13 2-3 18, Wangmene 0-1 5-6 5, Hill 0-2 00 0.

Stewart nips Bowyer at finish line for Nationwide win at Daytona DAYTONA BEACH, FLA. — Tony Stewart nipped Clint Bowyer at the finish line to win the Nationwide Series race at Daytona International Speedway for the fourth consecutive season. Bowyer was leading with Dale Earnhardt Jr. pushing him around the track, and Stewart was closing quickly on the outside with help from Landon Cassill. Earnhardt Jr. then set up his attempt to pass for the lead, and Bowyer had to block. That allowed Stewart to come charging alongside and nip him at the finish line by .007 seconds. Bowyer finished second to give Kevin Harvick Inc. a 1-2 sweep in Saturday’s race. Cassill was third, and Earnhardt Jr. was shuffled back to fourth.

Minority owner Jay-Z also was involved in Saturday’s meeting, according to the New York Daily News. The Nuggets have looked into trading Anthony since he declined to sign a three-year contract extension worth nearly $65 million this season.

LHS wrestlers win regionals By Clark Goble Journal-World Sports Writer

O L A T H E â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Not many Lawrence High wrestlers celebrated after hoisting their regional champions plaque Saturday at Olathe Northwest. They smiled for a picture or two, sure, but they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t linger around the gym. Instead, the Lions packed up their gear, tossed on their letter jackets and got back in the white vans in the parking lot. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more work to be done. The regional championship was just the second checkmark next to the Lionsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; three goals: winning the Sunflower League championship, the regional tournament championship and the state championship. So if the Lions were happy about their victory, they certainly didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t show it. Ten Lions and six wrestlers from Free State qualified for the state tournament in Wichita by placing in the top four in their respective weight classes. Five Lions won individual regional championships: Garrett Girard (103 pounds), Hunter Haralson (119), Andrew Denning (145), Reece Wright-Conklin (171) and Ben Seybert (189). Free Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Spencer Wilson (160) also won a regional title. The Lions got the result they wanted Saturday, but LHS coach Pat Naughton admitted that he was a little nervous after the first round of matches. Six Lions had first-round byes, but four other wrestlers

LAWRENCE HIGH WRESTLER CAMERON MAGDALENO, RIGHT, STRUGGLES against Free Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Spencer Wilson in the 160pound final. Wilson won the match, but the Lions won top team honors in the regional championships Saturday at Olathe Northwest. lost first-round matches to Free State wrestlers. That meant those four would have to win their next two matches in the consolation bracket in order to qualify for state. It also meant elusive team points were slipping away. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Talk about a slow start,â&#x20AC;? Naughton said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We come out and we just won league, and you think youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re on a roll, and all of a sudden, half of your team is asleep back in Lawrence.â&#x20AC;? Naughton, who was named regional coach of the year after the meet, told his team during the break between rounds that it needed to wake up. His wrestlers responded, picking up 82 points in the next round and jumping from sixth to first in the overall standings. Junior Jacob Von Feldt (125) epitomized the Lionsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; turn-

around, losing to Free Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Maurice Jacobs in the first round but pinning Topekaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Marcus Reece to qualify for state. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m pretty sure that halfway through the season, he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think he would ever be going down to Wichita,â&#x20AC;? Naughton said. Von Feldt, who was 4-16 coming into Saturday, said experienced wrestlers like Wright-Conklin and Cameron Magdaleno kept him motivated before the match. And after the momentous win, Von Feldt shocked everybody by pinning Olathe Eastâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Connor Leach, taking third place and adding five more points to the Lionsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; total. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was really nice to be able to help the team there,â&#x20AC;? a beaming Von Feldt said. Wright-Conklin pinned Olathe Eastâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s John Blazevic at

the end of the first period to remain undefeated at 33-0. He was named regional wrestler of the year, but Naughton thinks he hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wrestled his best match yet. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We still havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seen him be as dominant as he can be,â&#x20AC;? Naughton said. Free State coach Mike Gillman was ecstatic after six Firebirds earned trips to Wichita. The Firebirds qualified one wrestler last season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re buying into the program,â&#x20AC;? Gillman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s uphill from here.â&#x20AC;? Free Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Spencer Wilson trailed, 8-7, in the 160-pound championship match against Lawrence Highâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Magdaleno, but scored a takedown with 12 seconds remaining to secure the 9-8 victory. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just knew I had to finish that,â&#x20AC;? Wilson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really know how much time was left.â&#x20AC;? Both teams are excited for the trip to Wichita, but for different reasons. The Lions figure they have a shot at winning, and the Firebirds are happy that they have a solid group of wrestlers driving down instead of just one individual. Naughton said that his teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s schedule this season â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which included the Eudora Tournament of Champions and the Newton Invitational â&#x20AC;&#x201D; prepared his team for the twoday hotel stay and the long weekend of wrestling to come. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re down there, and now letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s see what you can do,â&#x20AC;? Naughton said. The state tournament starts Friday at Hartman Arena in Wichita.

Swimmers finish strong at state By Ben Ward Journal-World Sports Writer

TOPEKA â&#x20AC;&#x201D; After gutting out a sixth-place finish in the grueling 500 freestyle, Lawrence High junior Zach Andregg wanted little part of getting back into the water â&#x20AC;&#x201D; especially not before taking a few minutes to catch his breath. But, with Saturday being the finals of the boys swimming and diving state championships, Andregg, still exhausted from his 20-lap race, sucked it up and hopped back into the pool for the 200 freestyle relay. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We count on him to pick up a few people at the end of relays,â&#x20AC;? LHS coach Kent McDonald said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And the 200 relay is right after the 500 freestyle, so thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a really hard double.â&#x20AC;? With Andregg anchoring, LHS took 13th in the 400 freestyle relay (3:30.32) and 15th in the 200 freestyle relay (1:35.83) en route to a 17th-place finish overall at the natatorium at Hummer Sports Complex. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The only place we could go was up,â&#x20AC;? said Andregg, who was named second-team all-state after his seventh-place finish in the 200 freestyle (1:46.38) and his sixth-place finish in the 500 freestyle (4:49.96). In front of the raucous crowd in the packed natatorium, the Free State High team finished in 10th, bolstered by a strong day from secondteam all-state performer Ben Sloan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Overall we did a great job,â&#x20AC;? FSHS coach Annette McDonald said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The guys had good times, and they swam well. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m really proud of their hard

Blue Valley North edged Olathe East, 269-248, to capture the state title, despite OE junior Ben Bravenceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two individual first-place medals. Sloan, only a sophomore, placed sixth in the 200 individual medley (1:59.33) and fifth in the 100 butterfly (52.59). Additionally, Ben Sloan was part of FSHSâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 200 medley relay team (with Nolan Frank, his brother Logan Sloan and Tony Libeer) that took eighth, and the 400 freestyle relay team (with Frank, Canaan Campbell and Ethan Fisher) that placed 10th. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He came out and swam personal-best times today â&#x20AC;&#x201D; both of them,â&#x20AC;? Annette McDonald said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to be pleased with the place when you swim that well.â&#x20AC;? Andregg, the only Lion swimmer to qualify in an individual event, began his day by taking seventh in the highly competitive 200 freestyle. A short break and a few events later, he hopped into the water for the 500 freestyle, where he fell off the pace a bit earlier than he anticipated. Andregg said he could feel

for chemotherapy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a battle,â&#x20AC;? Homeratha said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You just go to war.â&#x20AC;? Upon learning of his condition, around 25 former players attended Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Haskell womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball game at Coff in Sports Complex to honor their coach, who has led the womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball program since 1995. At the postgame ceremony â&#x20AC;&#x201D; following Haskellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 67-65 loss to Peru State â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Homerathaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gifts included an eagle feather, the symbol of a warrior. Players have been posting old photos of him on Facebook while also sharing memories. Marzha Fritzler, who became Haskellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first-ever academic All-American in 2001, said Homeratha was

well-known for his â&#x20AC;&#x153;shortcuts.â&#x20AC;? When driving to South Dakota for one trip, she remembered her teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s van bouncing on the road. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Coach, where are we?â&#x20AC;? she asked. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Shortcut,â&#x20AC;? the coach answered. Fritzler realized her team was on a dirt road in the middle of the Badlands. â&#x20AC;&#x153;His shortcuts always were a little longer,â&#x20AC;? she said with a laugh. Homeratha, who calls his players his family, said the ceremony Saturday was more emotional than he thought itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be. Even for an ironman. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to walk away from here,â&#x20AC;? Homeratha said, holding back tears again, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Phil, you did about as good as you could do.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;?

Andregg said. The Firebirdsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 200 freestyle relay team (Libeer, Connor Munk, Chris Helt, Logan Sloan) also placed seventh, and Frank took fourth in the 100 backstroke at 53.99. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just to be standing up on that podium is so exciting,â&#x20AC;? Frank said. The other city swimmers to compete Saturday: Fisher placed 13th in the 500 freestyle and 15th in the 200 freestyle, Campbell took 14th in the 200 freestyle, and Logan Sloan finished 14th in the 100 butterfly. Frank, who swam for the final time as a Firebird along with fellow seniors Logan Sloan and Tony Libeer (Will Libeer, also a senior, did not swim), was a bit reflective following the meet, but said he was proud of the way the team competed all season and hoped that the younger members of the team will continue to improve. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Finals today were just icing on the cake,â&#x20AC;? Frank said.

Ailing Robinson works out, feels good By Gary Bedore

Kansas University sophomore forward Thomas Robinson, who had surgery on Feb. 11 to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee, worked out for an hour before the game Saturday. “I feel good. I’m moving well again,” Robinson said. “I tried jumping and stuff and didn’t lose anything. I feel I can get back to practice this week, maybe try to play a couple minutes Monday (versus Oklahoma State, 8 p.m., Allen Fieldhouse), but that’s still up for grabs. I’m going to try to get some minutes Monday, but I’ll be ready for Saturday (at Oklahoma) for sure.” The original prognosis had Robinson missing two weeks. “I had no doubts. You cannot break me, man,” he said with a smile. “I mean, this is something minor, a speed bump in the road, nothing I can’t handle. The injury is over with. I’m coming back. I’ll be ready next week.”

Game only downer for CU coach By Matt Tait

First, he received an unusually warm ovation from the Allen Fieldhouse crowd. Then, he caught a glimpse of himself in his No. 33 Kansas University jersey from the early 1980s during the Jayhawks’ intro video that accompanied Saturday’s starting lineups. Although that was about the point at which the welcome-home moment ended, current Colorado coach — and former KU player — Tad Boyle said he appreciated the gesture, even if it was followed by an 89-63 drubbing. “It was nice being back in Lawrence,” Boyle said. “I mean, this is a special place. Outside of the game, it was nice. But what makes it nice is that people here appreciate college basketball.” Saturday, Kansas treated everyone in the building to a clinic on how to play the game. A big reason why the Jayhawks played so well

stemmed from their still-lingering disappointment over how poorly they played Monday night at Kansas State. Boyle said the Buffs were ready to face an angry bunch of Jayhawks and were hoping to hang with them long enough to make a game of it. But that never happened. Kansas opened with a 7-0 run, pushed the lead to 22-11 by the 10:35 mark of the first half and had firm control at 48-31 by halftime. “We just knew that they were gonna be dialed in,” Boyle said. “We had a backdoor play called, and we couldn’t get into it the first three times down. We couldn’t even make a pass. We ran into a juggernaut today. My hat’s off to KU. They played awful well.... They were just too much for us today. They beat us in every facet of the game.” CU played better in the second half. The Buffs’ defense cooled Kansas down, dropping the Jayhawks’ field-goal percentage from 56 in the first

half to 48 in the second but still 52 for the game. At a loss to describe how his team played better in the second half, Boyle again deflected the credit to Kansas. “I think they just missed shots,” Boyle said. “Sometimes, the only team that can beat Kansas is Kansas. They’re a very good basketball team.” The intro video, including the footage of Boyle, who played at Kansas from 1982-85, actually was KU coach Bill Self ’s idea. While at Oklahoma State, Self played against Boyle. “I told Tad to watch the video because he was gonna be on it,” Self said. “I thought they’d have an action moment rather than him running off the court. But that was probably hard to f ind in the archives. We played a long time ago.” Added Boyle, when asked about being included in the video: “That just shows you KANSAS GUARD TYREL REED, RIGHT, WORKS to disrupt the the class of KU people and the dribble of Colorado guard Levi Knutson during the second KU fans.” half.

Jayhawks put loss behind them

Highlight-reel dunk Freshman guard Josh Selby bounced the basketball hard off the floor to a hard-charging Travis Releford, who finished a highlight-reel dunk with :29 left. “I saw John Wall do it yesterday in the All-Star game,” Selby said of the NBA rookiesophomore game. “I did it a couple times in pick-up games. I just wanted to bring it over here and get Travis a dunk. “He was surprised I threw it. He thought I’d take it myself like everybody else. He was surprised and reacted a little late,” added Selby, who said he’d be watching SportsCenter in hopes of seeing the play on the day’s top-10 list. Selby had several alley-oop lobs to Markieff Morris. Selby said his right foot (stress reaction) was 80 to 85 percent healed.


The shot Former KU guard Mario Chalmers of the Miami Heat told the Jayhawk Radio Network at halftime he was thrilled to watch the pregame video in which his game-tying shot against Memphis in the 2008 national title game is featured. “It’s the first time I’ve seen it since I’ve been gone,” Chalmers said of the video. “It sent chills up my body. It makes Nick Krug/Journal-World Photos me want to be out there again.” He said he thinks of the KANSAS FORWARD MARKIEFF MORRIS (21) RIPS AN OFFENSIVE REBOUND from Colorado shot, “about every week. It’s defenders Ben Mills (32) and Marcus Relphorde. Morris had 26 points and 15 boards in the one of the greatest moments Jayhawks’ 89-63 victory Saturday in Allen Fieldhouse. of my life.” NBA talk NBA players Chalmers, Cole Aldrich (Oklahoma City Thunder), Xavier Henry (Memphis Grizzlies) and Sherron Collins (Charlotte Bobcats) sat two rows behind KU’s bench. “I miss everything. I miss all of this. It’s fun being back,” said Henry, who wore a Houston Astros baseball cap. “Seeing all of the kids (students), seeing all of my friends playing … I enjoy it.” Collins, who wore a Cleveland Cavaliers hat — “Just matches my outfit,” he joked — arrived just before halftime because of a flight delay from Chicago. “I’ve got some fight in me. I learned I’ll fight through any situation,” Collins said of making an NBA team despite going undrafted. Aldrich joked: “It’s exciting to be back here, to see all these guys, not Sherron as much. Xavier is nicer. It’s a lot of fun seeing familiar faces and living the college life for a few days again.” Howdy, coach Kansas City Chiefs coach Todd Haley attended and sat a few rows behind KU’s bench. Faces in crowd Former KU players Jeff Graves, Aaron Miles and Wayne Simien attended, as did former KU football receiver Marcus Henry of the Carolina Panthers.

about playing defense, getting stops, forcing turnovers,” Morningstar said, “because that team was really good at doing that. We are not nearly as good as that. If he tells us, some people might understand it and believe it more than if a coach is saying it, because it’s somebody in their shoes who played here just a couple years ago.” Chalmers conceded, “Our team (in ’08) was more a defensive team. This team wants to score points. (Overall) I thought the guys played excellent, came out with a lot of energy after the loss to KState (84-68 on Monday in Manhattan).” The Jayhawks, who Self said left Manhattan Monday “a mad team, an embarrassed team,” were in much better spirits Saturday. “It was def initely more intense,” junior forward Marcus Morris (16 points, nine rebounds) said of practice this past week. “We had a conversation, had a team meeting, and everybody said everybody needed to do their part. It starts with one person. Everybody has to look in the mirror and see how they can make the team better. We need to get better on the

defensive side, so we’re going really hard.” The hard work Saturday — coupled with Nebraska’s 7067 victory over Texas — leaves KU just one game behind the Longhorns in the league standings. “It’s good for us,” Morningstar said, “but we control our own destiny now. We can’t worry about Texas losing. We already put ourselves in position we have to win the rest of our games and hope Colorado or somebody else can knock ’em (Longhorns) off in the next week or two. All we can do is keep winning games and see what happens from there.” Noted Self: “Whether Texas wins or loses shouldn’t affect how we play or how we prepare (for Monday’s 8 p.m. home game versus Oklahoma State), but we’ve got life as far as the league race. We have to win out, but there is life to the point nobody is out of it yet. I am not going to lie. I am glad Nebraska won. It was a big win for Doc (Sadler, NU coach). They needed a signature win. We’ve got work to do. We need to worry about ourselves, not what everybody else is doing.” — Assistant sports editor Gary Bedore can be reached at 832-7186.

no talk of keeping the No. 1 spot in the national rankings, not an impossibility should Ohio State lose to Purdue today. The players appeared subdued, even careful to heed the message their coach conveyed all week, the one about letting their performance talk for them. Another one of coach Bill Self’s consistent mottos, “You practice how you play,” must have taken root during the week as well, especially with Morris. “He’s been our best player in practice this week, and certainly he played like that today,” Self said. Nobody knows Morris anywhere close to as well as his twin, Marcus. “I could tell that he was going to play well, based on the way that he was practicing,” Marcus Morris said. “He was totally dominating in practice, and he was dunking everything around the rim. Like coach said, practice refers to the game, and that’s exactly how he played. He dominated in practice, and he dominated in the game.” Markieff needed only 10 shots to score 26 points. He made his only three-pointer and hit nine of 12 from the free-throw line. His eight offensive rebounds were a career high. Andre Roberson’s seven total rebounds led the Buffaloes. “I felt like I was not in the Kansas State game, and I want to make sure to get better every day,” Markieff said. “... I think that as a team we had something to prove this game. It was embarrassing losing to Kansas State, and we do not want to do that

again. We just got to get better, and I guess it starts with me.” That four-word expression, of course, is the best attitude for any player to take: “It starts with me.” KU’s best chance at dominating this game came on the inside, where CU can’t match KU’s size. First-year Buffaloes coach Tad Boyle captured the darned-if-youdo, darned-if-you-don’t approach to trying to contain Marcus and Markieff Morris, especially when the guards are shooting well. “Tyrel Reed and Brady Morningstar got going, and you have to pick your poison with these guys, especially when you’re undersized like we are,” Boyle said. “Your choice is to double the post, which we tried doing a little bit in the second half, and that didn’t work. They are such good passers and an awfully efficient offensive team.” The twins pass so well out of double-teams that teams are reluctant to double them. That quality, meshed with how well Kansas spaces the floor and passes, and the versatility of the twins make them so hard to guard. On this day, it didn’t much matter who received those passes. In the first game all season in which all five starters scored in double figures, the five starters combined to make 11 of 16 threepoint shots. Kansas certainly can’t count on shooting that way all the time. The way Markieff Morris attacked Colorado had nothing to do with shots falling and everything to do with a hungry player committed to putting a bad game behind him.

It’s time for boyfriend to shape up or ship out Dear Annie: I am a 42-yearold woman with two teenage daughters. I have been living with my boyfriend, “Jonas,” for 15 years. For the past two, Jonas has been out of work. This has affected his mood, as well as his sexual drive. He is not interested in being intimate. He keeps telling me it’s because I don’t wear enough makeup, or that I should dye the color of my hair. Like a fool, I have tried to give in to his requests so that he will love me, but it hasn’t helped. My daughters want me to throw him out because he says mean things and doesn’t treat me right. But I love him, and he has nowhere else to go. — Texas Dear Texas: Your makeup and the color of your hair will not determine whether or not someone loves you. Those are excuses Jonas gives in order to keep you at a distance. Jonas seems depressed and bitter, but that doesn’t mean you should tolerate being poorly treated. Put your backbone into place, and tell him to get some low-cost counseling through his church, the YMCA or United Way and to look for any kind of employment, including part time. If he refuses, you may have to take your daughters’ advice. It doesn’t help anyone if you are simply Jonas’ enabler.

ing the counseling you so often recommend to your readers. The purpose of this letter is to tell every other husband and father out there to act sooner rather than later because before you turn around, it might be too late. Too many men ignore the signs or are unwilling to accept help. Use every available treatment in order to ensure that you address all needs, both physical and emotional. My wife gave me ample Dear Annie: Last week, my time and multiple opportuniwife of 20 years told me she ties to make things better. In needed some “space.” She and the end, she had to do what our teenage daughter went to stay at her mother’s. Two days later, they informed me that neither of them wants to come home. I am devastated. Although their leaving was a complete shock to me, I can’t say it wasn’t warranted. They told me I’ve seemed unhappy for a long time. I thought I was making positive strides and things were improving, but apparently not enough. I never imagined we wouldn’t be able to work things out. When my wife first brought this issue to my attention two years ago, I saw my doctor, and he determined that my testosterone levels were low, which may have caused some underlying depression. I’ve been receiving treatment, but in hindsight, I guess I should have sought additional help, includ-

SNL rehashed for clip show Every year brings a new chance for NBC to broadcast a sweeps month collection of “Saturday Night Live” clips. And every year brings a new theme or creative hook, like politics, The Women of “SNL” or 2009’s “Saturday Night Live Just Commercials” (7 p.m., NBC). “Saturday Night Live Backstage” (8 p.m., NBC) is supposed to offer “behindthe-scenes” revelations, but I couldn’t help thinking I’d heard all of these stories before about clips I’d seen a dozen times or more. But who cares? These are always fun. Among the many highlights are interviews with former cast members who didn’t quite make it on “SNL” but who went on to later success, including Sarah Silverman and Chris Rock. We also hear about the unhappy stints of Damon Wayans and Larry David, but they don’t appear. Like any show that’s been on for going on 40 years, we hear a lot of rehashing of ancient history. Just why was Norm MacDonald fired again? What was its most controversial moment? Along the way, catch a baby-faced Tom Hanks when he first hosted the show. He barely seems out of high school. Or off the set of “Big.” ● Matthew Macfadyen resumes the role of Logan in the rewarding “Masterpiece Classic” (8 p.m., PBS, part 2 of 3) presentation of “Any Human Heart.” Recruited by friend and spymaster Ian Fleming, Logan is sent to keep track of the problematic former king and his American wife, now known as the duke and duchess of Windsor (Tom Hollander and Gillian Anderson). While not on screen for long, Anderson (“X-files,” “Bleak House”) really has a great time playing the former Wallis Simpson, a woman who turns from coquette to viper on a moment’s notice. ● “Amazing Race” (7 p.m., CBS) enters its 18th season with a cast of 11 teams from former competition, each out to win the prize they were denied the first time. The show’s always spectacular scenery and impressive production values will be enhanced by high definition. Phil Keoghan hosts. ● Airing over two nights, “Secret Service Files” (7 p.m., National Geographic, concluding Monday) looks at the agency’s duties, both celebrated and lesser-known, like protecting the economy and safeguarding the currency.

Tonight’s other highlights ● Scheduled on “60 Minutes” (6 p.m., CBS): Interviews with Sen. Scott Brown, R.-Mass., and actor Colin Firth; a report from Tunisia. ● A filmmaker follows a missing tiger for two years on “Nature” (7 p.m., PBS, check local listings). ● “Snapped” (8 p.m., Oxygen) enters its ninth season of irrational behavior. ● Barb holds her ground on “Big Love” (8 p.m., HBO) ● Production on the pilot concludes on the season finale of “Episodes” (8:30 p.m., Showtime). ● An old nemesis returns on “CSI: Miami” (9 p.m., CBS). ● Nora feels conflicted about Brody (Beau Bridges) on “Brothers and Sisters” (9 p.m., ABC). Cult choice Viewers can choose between two 1976 shockers about misfits: “Taxi Driver” (7 p.m., AMC) and “Carrie” (7:45 p.m., IFC). Quite the bicentennial double feature!

FORTH WORTH , T EXAS — Top-ranked Texas Christian scored six runs in the final four innings to break open a tie game and rout Kansas University, 7-1, in college baseball on Saturday. The Horned Frogs improved to 2-0, while the Jayhawks fell to 0-2. TCU starting pitcher Kyle Winkler and reliever Erik Miller held the Kansas offense to one run on one hit. The Jayhawks’ lone hit produced a run and tied the game at 1 in the fourth inning. After second baseman Jordan Dreiling reached second base on an error and stole third, senior Brandon Macias drove in his first run of the season with a bounding ball up the middle. “One run is never going to do it, especially against a team like this,” Macias said. “One hit and one run just can’t get it done.” However, TCU answered with two runs in the fifth, seventh and eighth innings. The three-game series concludes today.

DELAND, FLA. — Brittany Hile hit a tworun home run, and Kendra Cullum drew a bases-loaded walk in the top of the eighth inning to help lift Kansas University’s softball team to an 11-8 victory over Stetson on Saturday evening to keep its win streak alive at 9-0, the best start in program history. Earlier Saturday, the Jayhawks had six home runs in a 17-7 rout of BethuneCookman. With the night game tied 8-8 after seven innings, Hile launched her second homer of the day and fourth of the weekend over the left-field fence to give Kansas a 10-8 advantage. Cullum walked in one last run for the Jayhawks following a pair of singles and base on balls. Senior Allie Clark earned her secondstraight win of the day as she improved 1 to 5-0. Clark tossed the final 4 ⁄3 innings, allowing just one hit and no runs while fanning two batters. Seven Jayhawks combined for 12 hits, led by sophomore Rosie Hull’s 3-for-4 outing at the plate. In the early game, KU had 18 hits — its most since 19 against UMKC on March 28, 2006. Junior Liz Kocon had two homers, while Hile, Marissa Ingle, Montgomery and Laura Vickers also hit home runs.

in the world processing Kodachrome — accepted the final roll. Apparently photographers who use Kodachrome are procrastinators. “It was like being hit by a tidal wave,” says Grant Steinle, vice president of operations at Dwayne’s. “During the last two weeks we saw about 12 times our normal Kodachrome film volume.” Steinle, a 1986 Kansas University graduate with a Master of Business Administra-

tion, lived in Lawrence until 1989 when he joined his father, Dwayne, at Dwayne’s Photo. By 2010 they had positioned themselves as the last lab processing the film. From China to Poland, Kodachrome 35mm film, Super 8 and 16mm movie film arrived in the mail to meet the final deadline. An artist from London wanted her rolls processed in the last

Kodachrome leaves colorful legacy Back Pain?


batch, so she flew to Parsons for a hand delivery. “A gentleman from Arkansas had 1,580 rolls of Kodachrome that he brought in for processing,” Steinle says. Jim DeNike, a 53-yearold railroad worker, had been photographing trains for years but hadn’t developed them. The bill was $15,798 for about 50,000 slides. “He had to borrow from his father’s retirement account to pay for the processing,” Steinle says. Kodachrome, manufactured by Kodak from 1935 to 2009, was the first massmarketed color film. Professional photographers favored it for its archival quality and its saturated color palette. If you weren’t photographing with it, you were a witness to its images. Abraham Zapruder’s 486 frames of Kodachrome 8mm film captured the assassination of President Kennedy. For most of its history it was the film of choice for National Geographic magazine. Bill Snead, Lawrence, former editor and photographer at the Journal-World, Washington Post and National Geographic, is familiar with the famous film in the yellow box. “When you shot Kodachrome, you had no latitude for error,” Snead says. “There was one exact exposure, and all others made your slide too light or too dark. There was no Photoshop to lighten or darken your slide. You either had it or you didn’t.” But the unique color quality of the film could save an assignment. Like the time Snead used 50 ASA Kodachrome to photograph a fashion model on a hotel rooftop. “The only ambient light I could find to use was an exit sign over a doorway,” Snead recalls. Mixing the dim light sources in a long exposure shot, Snead captured an image chosen best fashion photo in that year’s Pictures of the Year competition. Kansas native Jim Richardson, Lindsborg, a photojournalist working primarily for National Geographic, recalls his early days with Kodachrome and the anticipation of a postman delivering yellow boxes

THE LAST ROLL of Kodak’s Kodachrome film was at Dwayne’s Photo Service in Parsons, the last lab in the world capable of developing the film. Once considered the premier color film in the world, the evolution of digital photography led to the demise of the classic film.

When you shot Kodachrome, you had no latitude for error. There was one exact exposure, and all others made your slide too light or too dark. There was no Photoshop to lighten or darken your slide. You either had it or you didn’t.” — Bill Snead, former editor and photographer for the Lawrence JournalWorld, Washington Post and National Geographic in the mail. “Then the rush to open the box, full of hope that I had somehow, miraculously, done something right and a fantastic image awaited me,” Richardson says. “It was sharp, and pictures looked important when shot on Kodachrome.” The last roll of Kodachrome was given to freelance photographer Steve McCurry in 2009. A National Geographic film crew documented McCurry as he traveled the world photographing the 36 frames. He ended up at Dwayne’s for processing. “He shot a portrait of Robert De Niro in New York

and a remote tribe of migrant herders in India,” Steinle says, who got to witness McCurry edit his work. McCurry noted how the herder’s vanishing way of life because of new technology was analogous to what had happened to Kodachrome. Appropriately, McCurry’s last Kodachrome moment was captured at Parson’s oldest cemetery. National Geographic plans a spring TV special on McCurry’s last roll. Digital images now match Kodachrome quality, and the charm of the bright yellow box has faded. Even Paul Simon’s plea, “Mama don’t take my Kodachrome away,” from his 1973 hit song can’t save the film. “I don’t pine for Kodachrome,” Richardson says. “I remember it fondly, but photographic technology has forged ahead, and our modern digital cameras eclipse anything we could produce back then.” Business at Dwayne’s Photo continues, but the end of Kodachrome marks a significant milestone. “The disappearance of Kodachrome has resonated with photographers and people in the photographic community in a way that no other film has,” Steinle says. “This has been a unique

So, as difficult as it would be to relinquish verbal control over our relationship, I would try my best to do it. Because everyone deserves a break, once in a while. Even middle-aged bikini oglers. My valiant effort lasted exactly three hours. I tried. I attempted to stay on the couch and go with the flow. But soon, I was following him around, miming orders like a deranged Marcel Marceau. “What is it?” he cried, for the hundredth time. “What do you want?” I gestured madly. Pointing to my throat. Chugging an imaginary glass of water. Falling dramatically to the floor. “Are you thirsty? Your water’s right there on the counter!” I shook my head violently and shoved three fingers in his face. “OK, OK! Three words!” he sputtered, because he loves Charades so much. “First word. Sounds like …. “ Animatedly, I pointed to the bottom of my shoe. “Feet. No? Sneakers. No? I know! Sole!

It’s that freaky painting right? What is it? ‘The Scream!’ You’re doing ‘The Scream!’ Of course! OK, mud-scream….spud-team… flood-beam….crud-theme…” I couldn’t take it anymore. “Blood pressure medicine!” I squawked in his ear. “I need you to pick up my blood pressure medicine at Walgreens!” “Why didn’t you just show me the empty bottle?” he asked. “You’re such a drama que…” “Stop!” I rasped, breaking the silence. “I can’t do this. Vocal cords be damned. There is no mute button here. I don’t DO mum!” He shuffled out of the room, muttering something about needing a nap before the drugstore run. The door to the bedroom clicked shut.

Glancing at the coffee table, I noticed a void where the swimsuit edition once lay. I was tempted, but I decided not to press the issue. This was a man whose brief trip to the Promised Land had been cut short by an alpha-female Chatty Cathy. He needed quality time with women who couldn’t talk back. I would give him that. For, at least, 15 minutes. And, perhaps, a new reciprocating saw for his birthday. —Cathy Hamilton is a public relations and marketing consultant, author of 16 books and blogger at Contact her at

Gordon-Reed’s personal awareness of the nation’s history of racial tension, combined with her interest in the birth of the United States, has found its way into her career as a writer and as a professor of law and history. Two of her books have dealt with the African-American Hemings family, who were both slaves and blood relations of Thomas Jefferson. GordonReed won the 2009 Pulitzer Prize in History for her 2008 book, “The Hemingses of Monticello: An American Family.” Gordon-Reed’s latest book, “Andrew Johnson: The American Presidents Series / The 17th President, 1865-1869” (Times Books, $23), touches on issues of race as she examines Johnson’s role in putting the nation back together after the Civil War. In one sense, Andrew Johnson’s life was a tale of success. He rose from illiterate tailor’s apprentice to become president of the United States. “One of the things that I wanted to come across in this book was that he was a person of tenacity and perseverance,” Gordon-Reed said in a phone interview from her home in New York. “It’s a very American story. It’s hard to imagine that a person of his standing would rise to the highest office in the land, but he did.” But his life was also a story of failure. Focusing on Johnson’s presidency, GordonReed aims to show how illsuited Johnson was both to succeed Abraham Lincoln,

More folks might sign up for philosophy 101 if they knew the truth about philosophers. Or so Andrew Shaffer suggests in his new book, “Great Philosophers Who Failed at Love” (Harper Perennial, $12.99 paper), a wry collection of tales about the love lives of the Western world’s greatest thinkers, in all their fumbling, adulterous, lecherous glory. There’s Jean-Jacques Rousseau (a flasher), JeanPaul Sartre (adopted his mistress), Simone de Beauvoir

Outside there is snow, it is cold. We sit at our kitchen table to eat strawberries, picked last spring, spooned over a biscuit, baked fresh this morning, and topped with whipped cream, untouched since Thanksgiving. We feel warmed as we contemplate what is “just around the corner.”

ANDREW JOHNSON, shown in this portrait circa 1860, served as vice president under President Abraham Lincoln and later became the 17th president of the United States. one of America’s greatest presidents, and to heal a nation that the Civil War had torn apart. She argues that by attempting to reconcile with Southern whites, Johnson abandoned millions of newly freed slaves and lost the trust of congressional leaders. “Johnson is considered one of the worst presidents,” Gordon-Reed said. “The interesting thing is that he was a talented man.” Gordon-Reed said that it was hard to assess how the United States would have fared if Johnson had never become president. She speculated, however, that the eco-

nomic conditions of African Americans would be very different today. “It takes generations to build wealth and economic stability,” she said. “All of this was delayed for a very long time.” This is Gordon-Reed’s fifth book. In addition to the volume on the Hemings family, she is the author of “Thomas Jefferson and Sally Hemings: An American Controversy” (1997); “Vernon Can Read!: A Memoir” (2001); and “Race on Trial: Law and Justice in American History” (2002). Gordon-Reed said the process of writing Andrew Johnson was different from

writing her Jefferson/Hemings biographies, because Johnson left few written records. In contrast, Jefferson left about 17,000 letters. “It’s hard to get at the essence of the man,” she said. “The issues of the day are more interesting than he is as a person.” Now that she is finished with the Johnson biography, Gordon-Reed is at work on another book about the Hemings family, two volumes of a Jefferson biography, and a collaborative book about Jefferson’s intellectual development. “I have the next 10 years planned out for me,” she said.

(adopted her alleged mistress) and Louis Althusser, who (accidentally, mind you) strangled his wife in her sleep. Shaffer, who lives in Iowa, runs a greeting-card company, the Order of St. Nick. Q. What sparked this idea? A. It started with Friedrich Nietzsche. I was really into Nietzsche, before college. Jim Morrison, Marilyn Manson, all these rock stars would reference Nietzsche. So I read some of his works. They’re pretty interesting, but you get the idea this guy’s a little ... crazy.

Q. Of the 37 philosophers you profile, who’s the worst? A. Rousseau fathered five children with this one woman — a seamstress — and told her they had to give up the children to orphanages, because they weren’t married and that would bring shame on ... her. Not him. Her. He also flashed women in alleyways — and wrote about it. I mean, basically, he was like a combination of Tiger Woods and Brett Favre. Q. Althusser’s no prize either. A. He was a 30-year-old virgin who had sex, broke down and had to have elec-

troshock therapy. That’s a good indication that maybe this isn’t for you. But he got married, then at the end of their relationship, something like 40 years, he accidentally strangled her — or at least that’s what he says. He wrote his autobiography (and it’s) fairly disturbing to read his account of it. I’ve had some people say, “I don’t know if I should read your book, I’m not that smart. I didn’t take any of those classes in college.” But this is a human interest story. You don’t need schooling for that. I usually say, “Hey, it has pictures in it.”

‘Pleasure Bound’ explores Victorian sexuality

Amy Dickey, painter for KU, Lawrence “’The Bride Quartet’ series by Nora Roberts. It’s about these By Michelle Wiener Associated Press Writer friends, and they all end up falling in love and getting “Pleasure Bound: Victorian married at the end.” Sex Rebels and the New Eroticism” focuses on a small crosssection of Victorian culture: a group known as the Aesthetes whose members included the Pre-Raphaelite painters (of whom Dante Gabriel Rossetti is perhaps the best known) and a group that called itself the Cannibal Club, founded by the explorer Richard Burton as an offshoot of the Anthropological Society. Deborah Lutz’s study follows two main ideas: First, that most of the 19th centu-

ry’s overtly sexual material, whether in visual or prose form, came from these groups; second, that the willingness of these men to push the limits of social propriety and study, almost empirically, what was considered then sexually deviant, is at the heart of their creativity. Lutz explains her attraction to these often overlapping groups and what they came to stand for: “I found in them

something so rare today among artists and writers: a will to collaborate. Conviviality sparked inspiration for their work; shared rooms in houses and studios kept a seriousness of creative intent circulating.” For Lutz, then, exploring their radical approaches to sexuality and eroticism is meant as a way of recovering an approach to creative work all but lost to us in the 21st century.

“Pleasure Bound” is clearly and smartly written and provides interesting and, yes, titillating accounts of Victorian pornography, from the anonymous “My Secret Life” diary to letters to the poet Algernon C. Swinburne’s proclivity for flagellation. However, a great deal of the book is devoted to close readings of poetry and paintings with which the majority of readers may not be immediately familiar, suggesting that this book may be unfortunately of interest only to other scholars and enthusiasts of the Victorian period.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Generalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; screening a benefit for Kansas Silent Film Festival River City Heating & Cooling

By Sarah Henning

Mick Ranney doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to stay quiet about the art of the silent film. Ranney, the owner of Footprints, 1339 Mass., is sponsoring his second showing of a silent film with a screening of â&#x20AC;&#x153;The General,â&#x20AC;? starring native Kansan Buster Keaton and featuring accompaniment by the Mont Alto Orchestra. The screening, set for 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Lawrence Arts Center, 940 N.H., will benefit the Kansas Silent Film Festival, which runs Friday through Sunday in Topeka. Ranney says he started the Footprints Silent Film Series because, having been to both the Kansas Silent Film Festival in Topeka and the Buster Keaton Celebration in Iola, he thought


What: Buster Keatonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Generalâ&#x20AC;? with live accompaniment by the Mont Alto Orchestra When: 7 p.m. Wednesday, Where: The Lawrence Arts Center, 940 N.H. Ticket info: $14 per ticket, Lawrence needed its own silent film event. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just thought Lawrence should have something like that, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been eager to go to something like that and wanting it to happen and I just thought, well ... if I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do it, then whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to?â&#x20AC;? says the silent film buff. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So, I figured, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Well, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll do it.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;?

The seriesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; first event was a showing of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Metropolisâ&#x20AC;? last fall, a screening that sold out and had to turn away patrons at the door. Ranney is hoping to duplicate that success and give the film festival a nice sum. He says he thinks â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Generalâ&#x20AC;? is the perfect movie to achieve that goal because it showcases the best silent films have to offer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Of Buster Keatonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s films, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d probably say it ranks at the top of most peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lists,â&#x20AC;? Ranney says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is absolutely fabulous. It cost a ton of money to make in that time period. The attention to detail was extreme â&#x20AC;&#x201D; thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a train crash in it in which they got an antique train from that era and crashed it on this collapsing bridge that was on fire. They got it all in one take. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was at the height of his career.â&#x20AC;?

And though the movie is readily available on the Internet and has been shown on Turner Classic Movies, Ranney says thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing like seeing it the way Keaton probably envisioned it â&#x20AC;&#x201D; on the big screen with live music. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The experience of seeing it on a big screen with an orchestra is so vastly more satisfying than seeing it on a tiny screen on a TV with little speakers,â&#x20AC;? Ranney says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I mean, it is such a cool deal. The seats at the Lawrence Arts Center are really great, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plenty of leg room, the acoustics are great â&#x20AC;&#x201D; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the perfect way to see it.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Staff writer Sarah Henning can be reached at 832-7187.

KU Theatre announces â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Beauxâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Stratagemâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; The University of Kansas Theatre will stage George Farquharâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Restoration comedy, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Beauxâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Stratagem,â&#x20AC;? adapted by Thornton Wilder and Ken Ludwig. Performances are at 7:30 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and March 4-5, and at 2:30 p.m. March 6, in the Crafton-Preyer Theatre. In the play, two young gentlemen find their money spent, so their only alternative is to marry money or to sell their swords for the wars.

Kitsch can fetch top dollar By Terry Kovel

“Kitsch” is a term that refers to something that’s overly sentimental or vulgar or in just plain poor taste. Paintings on velvet of Elvis Presley, plastic pink flamingos and hula girl statues were all once considered kitsch — and laughable. But tastes change, and today some of these things are now acceptable collectibles, although you would not expect to see them in an art museum. It is the humor in an example of kitsch that makes it interesting and gives it a place among collectibles. The hula girl is a tourist symbol of Hawaii, and the related dolls, lamps, paintings, grass skirts and leis are collected. Pink flamingo garden figures, a symbol of Florida to most Americans, are sold in all parts of the country. Kitsch is the opposite of conservative taste, and sometimes it takes many years before it is not laughed at. Those who bought funny 1880 advertising posters for quack medicines or figurines of exotic dancing girls in the 19th-century art-nouveau style are now seeing some of their “outlandish” choices displayed as art. Many art-nouveau bronze dancers bring high prices today. So if you dare, collect what appeals to you even if it is kitsch. Tastes change, and prices change, too.


Please tell me the difference between the Miss America depression glass sherbet plate and the coaster. I notice the coaster is higher priced, but pictures I have don’t show me the difference in the two pieces.

MICA WILLIS of Baldwin City has some large tropical plants in her home. AT LEFT, from top to bottom, is an 8-foot elephant ear plant, an orchid blooming in her sun room, and the leaves of a Night blooming jasmine vine.

Exotic plants brighten home in winter A

lthough there are plenty of different reasons to grow plants inside your home, I think Baldwin City resident Mica Willis expresses it the best. “I just have an awful time in winter not being able to get outside,” Willis says, “and this has been an awful winter for it. The plants help me through.” Willis’ plants would comfort many gardeners. An elephant ear measuring 6 feet tall, flanked by almost-as-tall diffienbachias, is the focal point of the living room. The elephant ear’s giant leaves make the plant seem almost tree-like. Elephant ears are more often planted outdoors in spring, allowed to die back at frost and overwintered as bulbs. Willis instead planted the bulb in a large pot and moved the whole thing inside for winter. “It usually blooms about now, but it got so huge that I had to transplant it this year,” she says. The plant is about 5 years old. The real collection is in

another room, though. Willis is lucky enough to have a space with windows on three sides, facing east, south and west. Large trees in her yard and at the neighbor’s keep the room from getting absolute direct sunlight, but the natural light quality is still great for a gardener. Night-blooming jasmine or Jessamine (Cestrum nocturnum) is the largest plant in Willis’ plant room. In nature, it is a large, sprawling evergreen shrub with vinelike branches. It cannot survive Kansas winters, but it likes the heat and light of Kansas summers, so Willis moves it outside with the elephant ear each spring.

“It’s wonderful,” Willis says of the night-blooming jasmine. “It perfumes my whole yard.” About 8 feet tall now, the plant must be cut back often to keep it under control. Less noticeable (only because it wasn’t in bloom when I visited) but still beautiful is a large bird-of-paradise. The glossy green leaves are a nice contrast to the other plants nearby. When in bloom, the flowers truly resemble some sort of brilliantly hued tropical bird. Willis beams a bit when she looks at the bird-of-paradise that she found at her mother’s four or five years ago. “I set it out in the sun all summer, and about October it gets buds. Right about the time it blooms is when everything outside is getting really gloomy and dark.” Rounding out the center of the room is a ficus tree that seems amazingly healthy. (Ficus are notorious for dropping leaves even when being pampered.) Plant stands in the windows hold a blooming orchid, Bougainvillea, a white poinset-

tia, dwarf papyrus, Christmas cactus, a Hoya plant and an unusual Bromeliad, among others. Willis recommends starting to fertilize tropical plants as soon as the days begin to lengthen and to follow label directions for frequency and amount. Continue fertilizing through the spring and summer, but give the plants a rest when they are not actively growing in the fall and winter. Also, Willis says moving large plants in and out of a house is not an easy task. Willis’ husband, Jay, is a big help with plant transport, especially with some additional plants that go to the second floor of their home each year. Even with the snow gone, the view outside the windows is very bleak in comparison to the green of Willis’ plants. “I just get surprised by this stuff. I don’t know for sure what they’ll do, but that’s the fun of it.” —Jennifer Smith is the Horticulture Extension Agent for K-State Research and Extension. She can be reached at 843-7058.


The Miss America coaster and sherbet plate are the same size, 5 3/4 inches in diameter, but the coaster has six raised ridges to support a drinking glass. Miss America pattern was made by Hocking Glass Co. of Lancaster, Ohio, from 1935 to 1938. The coaster was made in crystal (clear glass) and pink. The sherbet plate was made in crystal ($3), pink ($9), green ($8) and Royal Ruby. The coasters are worth more than sherbet plates of the same color, but the Royal Ruby sherbet plate ($60) is worth the most. Reproductions have been made of some Miss America pieces.

THIS 26-INCH-HIGH table lamp with a hula girl base is a kitsch joke. When the girl “dances,” her fringed skirt shakes. The 1940s lamp, very collectible now, auctioned for $500 at a fall Conestoga auction in Manheim, Pa.
