Area cities approach trash differently

What’s old is new again


Commission to hear comments on task force report Tuesday By Chad Lawhorn

Trash — it’s everywhere. But when it comes to how cities deal with the trash their residents produce, about the only thing for certain is that they all deal with it somehow. Some cities require residents to use carts. Others still allow old-fashioned bags or cans. Some cities have trash departments run by the city. Others have a laissez-faire system where private haulers can come in and compete for your business. Some allow you to throw your glass clippings in the trash. Others require you to recycle yard waste. On Tuesday, Lawrence city commissioners will dive into the world of trash. Commissioners will hold a study session with the city’s Solid Waste Task Force, and they are scheduled at their 6:35 p.m. meeting to take public comment on the task force’s final report. Commissioners on Tuesday aren’t expected to make any final decisions on changes to the city’s system, but they will likely debate the subject for at least weeks to come.

East Lawrence homes spruced up with modern, unique appearances By Chad Lawhorn

If these walls at 1109 N.Y. could talk, they could tell you how they once showed mercy on an entire construction crew. The old 1860s home on New York Street, you see, had a few problems. For one, it had a floor that probably only a skateboarder would appreciate. It sloped 7 inches from one side of the house to the other.

It didn’t exactly take Matt Jones or Eric Jay of Lawrence-based Struct/ Restruct to assume the role of Sherlock Holmes to know they were going to have to get at this house’s foundation if they wanted to save it. And make no mistake, Jones and Jay want to save houses. So they did what some remodelers have never done in their lives: they Image courtesy of Struct/Restruct

With that in mind, the Journal-World gathered information about how other communities run their trash programs. We picked communities that were either close by, a university community, or, in the case of Emporia, because Lawrence’s director of public works oversaw the revamping of Emporia’s trash system more than a decade ago. Here’s a look at the trash landscape, so to speak:

Lawrence Type: City-owned-andoperated trash service Rate: $14.94 per month for weekly residential trash service. Curbside recycling: Not offered by the city. Private haulers offer various services. Carts: Not mandated. Cans and bags are allowed. Trash trucks: Most trash trucks operate with a three-person crew. Yard waste: Weekly, curbside service offered in spring, winter and fall. Included in monthly base rate. Residents pay for the service regardless of whether they use it. Please see TRASH, page 7A

Private entombment will be at the Memorial Park Garden Mausoleum in Lawrence. He passed into the loving arms of His Heavenly Father on Friday, February 24, 2012 at Pioneer Ridge in Lawrence. He was born September 25, 1920 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada, the son of Lester R. & Sarah Pettit Beckman. During the 30’s, his family moved to Paddockwood to farm. It is here where he met and later married Alietha Aspvik on March 11, 1942. A month after his marriage, he was off to serve his country; first on the west coast and then to England. After returning from World War II, he began farming with his brother, Ken. Besides farming, Earl, Ken and their families ran a saw mill, and built and renovated houses in the area. In September, 1963, Earl, Alietha and family moved to Lawrence. He worked for Norris Brothers, American Electric and then Stanion Electric before retiring. Earl’s belief in Christ and his family have always been the main emphasis for him. He was pastor of the Community of Christ congregations at Paddockwood, Saskatch-

ewan, and Tonganoxie, Kansas. He is survived by his wife Alietha, of the home. Also, three Beckman children; Bill & Sharon (Justice) Beckman of Overland Park, KS, Christine & Leon Winters and Marilyn & Verlon Myers of Lawrence, KS.

Drug smuggling As Ralph Edward Corey, then 43, and his father, Manuel Corey, 76, approached a weigh station on Interstate 81 in Botetourt County, Va., on March 15, 2003, their semitrailer made a hurried and illegal U-turn in the median, according to media reports. The younger Corey, on federal probation for a 2002 counterfeiting conviction, had reason to be nervous of the coming weigh station. F o r starters, the trailer they were hauling was 2,500 p o u n d s overweight, Ralph Corey the brakes and lights were defective, and the driver’s log was outdated. Then there was the marijuana. Along with 44,000 pounds of green tomatoes, the trailer was packed with 500 pounds of marijuana, which had a $2.3 million street value, and about $17,000 in cash. A driver who witnessed the suspicious U-turn called police, who caught up with the truck a few miles down the road. Despite attempts to conceal the marijuana odor, which included the use of mustard and cellophane wrap, drug-sniffing dogs ferreted out the drugs. !"On March 14, Lawrence !

central Kansas man has been sentenced to at least 50 years in prison for killing his wife. Judge Jerome Hellmer on Friday sentenced Davin R. Sprague to the “hard 50,” which is a life sentence with no possibility of parole for 50 years. Sprague, of rural Saline County, was found guilty of first-degree murder in September in the death of his 28-year-old wife, Kandi Sprague.

Expert: Offender ‘has quite a history’ Stephen Thompson, director of Sexual Aggression Services at Central Michigan University and a sexual assault profiler, said the type of assault reported in this case is likely the work of an offender who’s committed a series of other such crimes. “I’ve got to believe he has quite a history,” Thompson said. “I’d bet my mortgage on it.” Thompson noted the predatory nature of the alleged assault — a stranger nabbed in public — isn’t often the first offense a sex offender commits. placing a stocking cap over her face. The man took the wheel, drove the car out of the parking lot and turned the wrong way on a one-way section of U.S. Highway 59 before pulling into the parking lot of the Orscheln Farm and Home store down the street. “I was asking him who he was, where was he taking me, why he was taking me, where he was from, if he had kids, how old he was, what his name was; just anything to deter him from hurting me,” said the woman, now 28, at the November preliminary hearing. “He just told me to shut up and stop talking, and he kept repeating to shut up, or he was going to (expletive) kill me. It scared me to death.” The girl never saw a gun, but she felt an object during the attack that could have been a firearm. The man began telling the girl he had been watching her, and he knew her work schedule at Walmart. “It made me feel like he had been watching me for who knows how long. A very long time,” the woman testified. He climbed into the backseat and sexually assaulted the girl, who was able to get a glimpse of the man as the stocking cap on her head shifted during the attack. Afterward, the man climbed into the driver’s seat, drove to the Country Mart parking lot down the street and sexually assaulted the girl again. The man then drove the car to the nearby McDonald’s. He told the girl he was going to get a milkshake and instructed her to count to 100. Instead, the girl climbed into the driver’s seat, and, using the keys her attacker left behind, she drove herself to the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office, where she reported the attack. Inside the car, police found the stocking cap and a pair of gloves, both of which did not belong to the girl. The items were sent to the Kansas Bureau of Investigation lab for DNA testing, and the information was entered into CODIS, the national DNA database, in 2002. At the time, the database didn’t have a DNA profile match for the attacker.

And such offenders typically begin committing crimes in their 20s, ThompThompson son said, though the suspect in this case, Ralph Corey, was 43 at the time of the alleged assault. Thompson said law enforcement should be looking for other similar unsolved crimes that could be linked to one offender. — Shaun Hittle

DNA match In December 2010, Ottawa police were notified by the KBI that DNA from the 2000 sexual assault had produced a match in CODIS, identifying Ralph Corey as a suspect in the crime. Corey’s federal counterfeiting conviction is not an eligible offense for DNA testing in the federal system, but Corey’s 2004 drug trafficking convictions in Virginia are qualifying offenses under Virginia law. Corey’s DNA would’ve been taken and entered into CODIS in sometime around 2004. It’s not clear why it took six years to produce a match to the DNA collected in the 2000 Ottawa crime. KBI, FBI and the Virginia Department of Forensic Sciences officials said they don’t comment on specific cases. Armed with the DNA match information, Geist, the Ottawa police officer, traveled to Arizona and visited Corey in prison. Geist said Corey spoke barely above a whisper during the interview, according to court records. Corey told Geist that in 2000 he was working as an independent truck driver. Corey said little else, but a DNA swab taken at the prison confirmed the results from the DNA cold hit. Corey was transferred to the Franklin County Jail once his federal sentence expired in June. Defense According to court records, Corey’s court-appointed attorney, John Boyd, has been attempting to obtain gas card records from the trucking company — RAKAB Transportation Inc., based in Waterloo, Iowa — that Corey worked for in 2000. Such records could possibly show Corey was not in the Ottawa area when the crime occurred, but the defense was not able to produce such records at the November preliminary hearing. Boyd, Franklin County Attorney Heather Jones, and Ottawa police have declined further comment on the case, citing the pending trial. Corey is set to stand trial in Franklin County on June 19 on charges of aggravated kidnapping, aggravated sexual battery and criminal threat. 609 N.H. (offices) • 645 N.H.

Screenwriter to sign Unused medication program raises concerns books, talk to students By Karrey Britt

Since its inception in July 2009, the state’s Unused Medication Repository program has provided more than $6 million worth of unused drugs for free to Kansans who can’t afford them. While it’s being touted by lawmakers and state health leaders as a successful program that’s kept drugs out of landfills and is helping low-income Kansans, it also may be putting some Kansans at risk of medical complications. Lawrence pharmacist Jeff Sigler thinks some safety-net clinics may be misinterpreting the Kansas State Board of Pharmacy’s laws and regulations regarding the program. He said the law requires an on-site pharmacist to affix a label to each medication that is dispensed to a patient. The label must include a doctor’s name, patient name, drug name and directions. He thinks some clinics are dispensing drugs without all of the information or with information that’s not from a pharmacist. The other problem is some clinics may be dispensing the drugs as if they were samples. “Samples are meant to be given for a short period of time, maybe a week to see if they can tolerate it. So the chances of having a long-term medication error with samples is lower,” he said.

Program’s evolution Krista Postai, CEO of the Community Health Center of Southeast Kansas, has been involved with the program since it began. She said the problem is that the program has changed since the Legislature passed the Utilization of Unused Medications Act in 2008. It started as a program to allow nursing homes, mail-service pharmacies and medical care facilities to donate unused drugs to Federally Qualified Health Centers, indigent health care clinics and community mental health centers. To receive donations, clinics would deal directly with the donors and have pharmacists on site to oversee the dispensing of the medications. Postai said the Pittsburg clinic ran into glitches. When the clinic received its first boxes of unused medications from nearby nursing homes, most of the drugs were outdated or not marked appropriately. It was a time-consuming process to sort them. The clinic also began receiving large donations from mail-service pharmacies in bottles of 1,000 pills, which needed to be broken down into smaller supplies, and only a pharmacist can do that, which also is time-consuming. Those involved with implementing the program also learned many areas of Kansas don’t have a safety-net clinic, so nursing homes didn’t have a place to donate unused drugs. Then there were the clinics who received donations but couldn’t use them. So the Kansas Department of Health and Environment decided to provide about $140,000 in funding annually for the Community Health Center of Southeast Kansas, or CHC/SEK, to become a repository for the program. The money covers the salaries of a part-time pharmacist, a full-time coordinator and the costs for shipping. The way it works is that the donors and recipients sign up to participate in the program through the Board of Pharmacy and then can choose to participate in the repository. Through the repository, they can order drugs through an online system, and then they are shipped to them. But clinics still need to have an on-site pharmacist to place the appropriate labels on the medications and oversee the program.

Does Unified School District 497 make accommodations for Muslim students to pray during school hours? If so, are any employees of the district paid to oversee these prayer meetings?


“Yes, our typical practice is to provide release time for parents to pick up their students from school for prayer time. In some cases, however, schools may make other accommodations if release time is not possible,” said David Cunningham, the district’s director of legal services, human resources and policy. “School staff do not directly supervise student prayers, but children are not left unattended while at school.”

AVION NELSON, 8, DRIBBLES AWAY from defenders during a three-on-three Boys and Girls Club of Lawrence basketball tournament organized by the Kansas University Sports Management Club on Saturday at Robinson Gymnasium on KU’s campus.

By Chansi Long

More than 100 firstand second-graders decided to forgo watching cartoons or sleeping in Saturday to spend their morning playing basketball instead. Before 8 a.m., about a hundred children from the Boys and Girls Club of Lawrence filed into Robinson Gymnasium, 1301 Sunnyside Ave., and waited for instructions. Soon the kids were pulling colored mesh jerseys on over their clothes. Then they were split into teams of three or four, and the court was divided piecemeal. Six to eight half-court games started simultaneously. “It’s organized chaos,” said Dakota Strange, president of Kansas University Sport Management Club, the group that organized the event. It was the third year for KU Sport Management to sponsor the youth basketball tournament. The 40-plus people involved began collecting money at the launch of the semester, scrambling to raise $850 within two weeks. Hy-Vee was the group’s main sponsor. In all, 10 different local companies contributed to the event. And surplus funds will benefit the Boys and Girls Club of Lawrence. Robinson Gymnasium was a cacophony of sneakers squeaking, basketballs drumming and children shrieking, squealing and giggling as they raced down the court and scrabbled for the ball. Among the secondgraders darting down the court was Taiya Smart, 8, who wore black shorts, and a white tank top, her blond hair tied back in a ponytail. It was Taiya’s first big basketball game. “I just started playing (basketball) in the second grade because I learned that I could do it,” she said.

tracked Taiya’s feverish movement. Taiya’s interest in the game is new, but her enthusiasm is strong. In each of her games, Taiya locked her gaze onto the basketball. And when the ball moved, she moved. Also on the court was second-grader Aidan Flores, who wore glasses and a red mesh jersey so large it kept sliding down his right shoulder. Aidan played in the tournament last year and loved it. His mother, Aletha, said Aidan, 7, had been asking about the tournament since November. He was bursting with excitement Saturday. His favorite things about the day? “Playing and scoring and having fun,” he said. Aidan was one of seven boys representing Broken Arrow School. “There is a ton of people here, and it’s only firstand second-graders,” said MacKenzie Kerns, a team leader for Broken Arrow. “They were so excited for today, and they’re having a great time.” Jaden Hall, 7, said the day was not about winning — though he loves it when he wins. “There’s a lot of people to see, and it’s not all about the game,” Hall said. “It’s about fun.” By 9:30 a.m. Hall had already made four baskets, and he was feeling confident that he would make more. And if he didn’t, oh well. He was having fun. “There’s no clear winner and no trophies,” said Andy Kreigh, 22. “We didn’t want to emphasize a winning and a losing side. It’s just a fun and unique way to reach out the community … and get the kids active in a healthy, competitive environment.” The day of the tournament was also Kreigh’s 22nd birthday. And he couldn’t have imagined a better way to spend his day. “This is definitely one of the most unique, fun ways I’ve ever spent a birthday.”

Road work planned this week Elvyn Jones/Journal-World Photo

ROGER BOYD, MANAGER OF THE BAKER WETLANDS SOUTH OF LAWRENCE, was honored Saturday in Salina as the Kansas Conservationist of the Year by the Kansas Wildlife Federation.

Wetlands manager honored by Kansas Wildlife Federation ———

Baker prof is Conservationist of Year By Elvyn Jones

Sitting at a table Friday morning, Roger Boyd concentrated on winding a small strip of paper to form a wheel for a model tractor. At 64 years of age, Boyd wasn’t building an elaborate model as some retirement hobby. The tractor is part of a display of the future Baker Wetlands Visitor Center. The center is to be built with money the Kansas Department of Transportation is providing for its intention for extending Kansas Highway 10 through a portion of the Baker Wetlands that Boyd has managed for the past 24 years. Ground will break on the project in the fall of 2013, and it should be finished a year later, Boyd said. “We’re assuming once we get the Visitor Center going, we’ll get 10,000 visitors a year,” he said. “Right now, we don’t really keep track, but it’s a couple of thousand a year.”

Getting recognition If not yet ready for retirement, Boyd has reached a point that his work as a professor at Baker University and manager of the Baker Wetlands is being recognized. The latest award came Saturday in Salina, where Boyd was recognized as Kansas Conservationist of the Year at the Kansas Wildlife Federation’s annual awards banquet. In presenting the award, the association cited Boyd’s work with the wetlands, his teaching career at Baker University and his recycling initiatives. Boyd was nominated for the award by one of his heroes, Stan Roth, a longtime biology teacher at Lawrence High School. Like the others on his list — Wes Jackson, E. Raymond Hall and Roger Boyd’s father, Ivan Boyd — Roth worked to make a difference locally and in the state, Boyd said. Boyd said Hall, the former director of the Kansas Natural History Museum, suggested in 1968 to his father, who was also a Baker biology professor and the first manager of the wetlands property, to accept land from the federal government that was to become the wetlands after KU passed on the opportunity. “He jokingly told my dad, ‘Baker is used to doing something with nothing. Why don’t you guys try it?’” Boyd said. “My budget for several years was $500. I could spend it anyway I wanted. “We became very good at getting donations and writing grants.” Wetlands conversion The property Baker received was cropland, which settlers first set about draining for agricultural use in the 1850s. The soil washed down the Wakarusa River valley was

fertile, but the low-lying floodplain was always a challenge to farm because of the difficulty finding enough dry time to getting crops planted and harvested. His father’s assumption was that Clinton Dam would control flooding, so he concentrated on converting the property to prairie, Boyd said. That focus began to change after Boyd’s father died in 1982 and he became manager of the wetlands. He secured funding in 1990 from the federal government to remove the tiles that drained the property. “We plugged up all the leaks,” Boyd said. “That’s what converted it back to wetlands.” That and a lot of student “slave labor.” “The buzzword now is ‘service learning,’” he said. “Students donated a lot of time here and at the (Ivan) Boyd Woods and Prairie.”

Environment education Under Boyd’s direction, Baker University added a wildlife biology degree program, which to his regret has been phased out with his retirement from fulltime teaching in 2005. During his career, he reached more Baker students with a human ecology course for nonscience majors. “My approach was to tell them why the environment was important,” he said. “When you teach biology majors, they get it. I considered that my opportunity to share that message to humanity majors and business students, who sometimes think environment is a bad word.” It was through his science students that Boyd started the recycling effort for the campus and Baldwin City, the Kansas Wildlife Federation cited in its announcement. Bins on campus collect 9 tons of paper, plastic, cardboard and some metals every month. “I started a recycling program on campus in 1989,” he said. “It’s always been run by students. The Earth We Are Club is usually involved. “Recycling has always been a personal passion. I worked with the city to get their recycling started at the train depot.” The past two years Boyd has been leading the effort to add another 300 acres of wetlands to the site, half near future visitor center and half east of Haskell Avenue. The work has gone well as wetland seeds dormant in the ground sprouted with the introduction of the right conditions, he said. “I was skeptical,” he said. “I thought this would take five to 10 years. But just in the first year we have already met all our goals.” Although he isn’t thinking about retirement soon, Boyd sees that day coming. “I’ll probably go until I’m 70 or so,” he said. “Dad taught until he was 78. I don’t think I’ll go that long, but I’ll probably greet people at the Visitors Center and give tours. I’m sure I’ll give tours.”

Judicial buffer The Kansas Legislature should shelve any further efforts to alter the system for appointing state appeals judges.


bill that would have significantly changed the process for appointing members of the Kansas Court of Appeals was narrowly rejected last week by the Kansas Senate, but other proposals to alter the selection process may be on the agenda before the end of this legislative session. With all the big issues facing legislators this year, there is no reason for them to spend more time on efforts to change a system that’s working well for the state. Currently, the governor appoints members of the Court of Appeals, choosing from among up to three nominees forwarded by the state’s nine-member Supreme Court Nominating Commission. (The same process applies for the Kansas Supreme Court, but changing the process for that body would require an amendment to the Kansas Constitution.) Critics of this process focus on the makeup of the nominating commission, and the bill that was rejected Thursday would have eliminated that body’s role and allowed the governor to appoint anyone he or she chose to the Court of Appeals, subject to Senate confirmation. Four members of the nominating commission are non-attorneys appointed by the governor, one from each of the state’s congressional districts. Four members are attorneys elected by attorneys in each of those districts. The ninth member is an attorney selected by attorneys in a statewide vote. Opponents suggest the Kansas system is out of step with other states, but several other states have systems that are almost identical including nominating commissions with a majority of attorney members. The only difference is that, in some states, a member of the state Supreme Court or someone appointed by the chief justice — always an attorney — fills one seat on the commission. Proponents of the system rejected in the Senate on Thursday claim that it makes the judicial process more democratic, but it also makes it far more political. Kansans need look no further than the federal judiciary to see the impact of such a system. Appointments to the U.S. Supreme Court have been highly politicized, and dozens of nominations to fill seats on federal appeals and district courts currently are hung up in the confirmation process. The attorneys who are members of the Kansas Supreme Court Nominating Commission are selected by attorneys representing both political parties. In most cases, they are familiar with attorneys and judges who are seeking seats on the Court of Appeals. The process ensures that qualified candidates are submitted to the governor, who then can apply whatever philosophical or political preferences he or she wants to the final selection. Without the nominating commission, the governor would be able to appoint anyone to serve on the appeals court. That person might or might not be wellqualified for the job and probably would reflect the philosophical and political leanings of the governor, especially if the governor’s party enjoys a majority in the Kansas Senate, as is now the case. The Kansas Supreme Court Nominating Commission provides an important political buffer for those who are appointed to the state’s highest courts. It’s a system that has worked well in the state for many years. There’s no reason to change it now. LAWRENCE

More arms wrong strategy in Syria WASHINGTON — Following a week when more brave reporters died chronicling President Bashar al-Assad’s slaughter of more than 6,000 of his countrymen, you hear more calls for sending weapons to the embattled opposition militia known as the “Free Syrian Army.” More weapons undoubtedly will flow to the opposition, one way or another, but they’re not going to bring about a democratic Syria. The moral case for arming the rebels may be strong, but it doesn’t overcome the practical problem:

David Ignatius

The right Syria strategy should address Assad’s key vulnerabilities, which are not military. The first is money, without which the regime can’t survive. The second is sectarian tension … ”

The battlefield is Assad’s area of strength, not weakness. A better route to democratic change in Syria is the mix of economic, diplomatic and other pressure that was on the agenda for Friday’s “Friends of Syria” meeting in Tunis. Covert supply of weapons is likely to keep the opposition from being overrun, but both Turkey and the United States oppose any move toward outside military intervention or open support of rebel fighters. “The only thing that’s accurate in ‘Free Syrian Army’ is that they’re Syrian,” cautions one skeptical administration official. “They’re not going to free Syria, and they’re not an army.” That may sound harsh, but shoveling weapons to this disorganized opposition now is only likely to increase civilian deaths. The insurgents are

too dispersed, disorganized and untrained to be an effective national force. The right Syria strategy should address Assad’s key vulnerabilities, which are not military. The first is money, without which the regime can’t survive. The second is sectarian tension, which Assad fosters because it boosts his claim to be protector of the minority Alawite and Christian communities. Let’s look at these two pressure points carefully, and think how the United States could help remove the pins on which Assad rests. First, money: Assad’s regime survives because it has enough cash to pay the army, sustain the economy despite sanctions, and grease the palms of thousands of henchmen. The U.S. recognized this vulnerability when it imposed economic sanctions last August, which were followed by similar moves by the European Union, the Arab League and Turkey. But the Syrian cash machine continues to operate. Despite sanctions, the Central Bank’s reserves still total about $10 billion, or about six months of imports, according to U.S. estimates. That’s down from about $18 billion before the conflict exploded a year ago — a fall, but not

yet a crippling one. The Syrians survive partly by piggybacking on the thriving Lebanese banking system. Obama administration emissaries sharply warned the Lebanese government in November that it can’t play both sides of the street; if Lebanese banks are caught providing more back-door aid to Damascus, the consequences for the Beirut financial system could be severe, a Treasury official said. A more worrying problem is Russia, which is providing money for Assad’s regime as well as diplomatic cover. U.S. officials hope that when the European Union bans dealings with the Syrian Central Bank this week, that will make it harder for Russia to channel aid. Certainly more sanctions will help, but not if Russia is determined to keep Assad afloat. Perhaps the answer is to make Moscow part of the solution. That might mean giving Russian leader Vladimir Putin a role in brokering the transition — hosting a conference in Moscow, let’s say, that brings together the Syrian opposition, the Arab League and the Turks. If that got Assad out of the way short of a civil war, it might be a sensible bit of realpolitik. Second, the issue of sectar-

Contraception takes step back “You know, back in my days, they used Bayer aspirin for contraception. The gals put it between their knees ...” — Foster Friess, Feb. 16, 2012 Do you watch “Mad Men”? If so, you know that one of the things that drama about a 1960s advertising agency does best is transport you back to the days when women still were “gals.” We think we remember what that was like. We use words like “sexist” and “paternalistic” to describe it. But that is jargon and no amount of jargon can deliver the same visceral jolt of “Oh, my Lord” as a “Mad Men” scene where one of the “gals” in the office seeks a prescription for those new birth-control pills, but first must endure a humiliating lecture from her doctor. “I see from your chart that you’re not married,” he says. “And yet, you’re interested in the contraceptive pills.” He warns her that if he thinks she is becoming “easy” or a “strumpet,” he will take the pills away. When a Foster Friess describes how things were “back in my days,” it is worth remembering that those are the days he is referring to. Friess, a major financial supporter of presidential wannabe Rick Santorum, made his comment in an interview with MSNBC. Santorum quickly disavowed it. “A stupid joke,” he called it. We seem to be talking an awful lot about women’s reproductive health lately. Not just the usual zero sum

Leonard Pitts Jr.

They seek to re-impose what they regard as ‘the good old days,’ as in a time when women were ‘gals’ to be lectured by doctors on their sexual morality.”

battles about abortion, but a wholly new battle about contraception, something most us would have thought utterly uncontroversial just a few short weeks ago. But since then, we’ve seen President Obama forced to compromise on an ill-considered mandate requiring religious institutions to provide contraception to their employees. We’ve seen the GOP convene an all-male panel to testify on women’s reproductive concerns. We’ve seen debate over Title X, a 1970 law providing free contraception to indigent women. We’ve been treated to Rick Santorum’s bizarre views on contraception, which he opposes because he says it doesn’t work (!) and is dangerous and harmful to women, to boot. And we’ve seen Foster

Friess attempt to make a funny. You might let it go as just that, save for a nagging certainty that in a few ill-chosen words, Friess managed to capture something telling and important about the way he and other social conservatives see this country. It has been argued that they seek to forestall the future, to interdict social and demographic trends suggesting tomorrow’s America will be gayer, browner and more Islamic than today’s. But that’s only half the story, isn’t it? Friess’ “joke” suggests they seek not just to challenge tomorrow’s changes, but also yesterday’s. They seek to re-impose what they regard as “the good old days,” as in a time when women were “gals” to be lectured by doctors on their sexual morality. That should be an eyeopener for those who feel yesterday’s victories are impervious to challenge or change. Maybe it is time to wonder if that assurance is not misplaced. The very fact that we are debating contraception in 2012 suggests that it is — and that those who are sanguine about battles won 40 years ago might do well to reconsider. One is reminded of the old axiom that says, the future is not promised to us. Well, neither, apparently, is the past. — Leonard Pitts Jr. is a columnist for the Miami Herald. He chats with readers from noon to 1 p.m. CST each Wednesday on MiamiHerald. com.

ian tension: Assad survives in part because Alawites and Christians fear that a bloodbath of reprisal killings would follow his ouster. The U.S. and its key regional allies, Turkey and Saudi Arabia, need to address this issue directly. The message should be that Assad’s days are indeed numbered, and minorities should join Sunnis in the movement for democratic change — with the assurance that, as they do so, they will be protected by international guarantees. The Muslim Brotherhood, which has emerged as the strongest voice in the Arab Spring, would win new friends if it could join Turkey in sponsoring a dialogue that gathers Syria’s Alawite clan leaders, Christian patriarchs and Muslim democrats. The world has been inspired by the courage of the Syrian people, and of journalists such as Marie Colvin of the London Sunday Times and Anthony Shadid of The New York Times who died while reporting the resistance to Assad’s tanks and artillery. But precisely because so many lives are at risk, the U.S. and its allies should craft a process that brings democratic change, not mayhem. — David Ignatius is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.


Credible appraisals To the editor: The Douglas County appraiser says (Journal-World, Feb. 21) that he still does not consider most distressed or foreclosure sales on residential property as indicative of fair market value. Banks, he argues, are unloading the properties quickly to get the properties off their books. Welcome to the bureaucratic world of magical thinking. It helps explain the jiggering, up or down a percentage point, in Douglas County assessments during the recession, even though home prices nationally are down 30 percent from their pre-recession highs. A homeowner may like a high appraisal because it confirms his optimistic view of a property’s worth. But a home seller must compete in a brutal market where “fair market value” is trumped by real bids. Meantime, the Douglas County administrator is quoted as saying that compared with the rest of the nation, real estate values “have held up remarkably well here.” He is applying the county appraiser’s ambrosia, a mutually enforcing illusion that suits public officials who find it expedient to live in denial. It would be better to ‘fess up to reality and, if necessary, raise the property tax rate while restoring the credibility and integrity of the appraisal process. William B. Dickinson, Lawrence

Thrusting his arms into the air while peering into the Allen Fieldhouse stands, Bill Self let out a primal scream as the final horn sounded in Kansas University’s 87-86 overtime victory over Missouri on Saturday afternoon. “I’m not the most emotional guy, but that’s as good as it gets. It’s as exciting of a game as I’ve ever been part of. It’s the best home win I can remember us having,” Self, KU’s ninth-year basketball coach, said after his Jayhawks successfully completed a comeback from a 19-point deficit — the largest second-half deficit overcome in program history. “Playing Missouri does mean something. It means something to me. But to me, it wasn’t about this being the last time we played (with MU moving to SEC next season). To me, it’s about our team winning its eighth-straight championship. For this team to come as far as it has, winning that eighth straight ... these guys committed to it. They’ve amazed me.” The Jayhawks, who trailed, 58-39, with 16:20 left, avenged a 74-71 loss to the Tigers on Feb. 4 in Columbia, Mo. — a game in which KU blew an eight-point lead in the final two minutes. In doing so, KU (24-5) improved to 14-2 in the Big 12 with two games to play. Second-place MU (254) dropped to 12-4, meaning the Tigers can do no better than tie KU for the crown

McIlroy, Westwood paired in semis MARANA, ARIZ. (AP) — A dull day in the desert ended with high anticipation Saturday when Rory McIlroy and Lee Westwood won their matches, setting up a semifinal showdown in the Match Play Championship. At stake for the winner — a chance to go to No. 1 in the world. McIlroy had another surge on the back nine to put away Bae Sang-moon of South Korean, 3 and 2. Moments later, West-

wood finished off Martin Laird of Scotland for a 3-and-2 victory to advance to the semifinals. Either of them can replace Luke Donald at No. 1 by winning this World Golf Championship. “It definitely gives the match an extra bit of spice,� McIlroy said. Hunter Mahan played the shortest quarterfinal match in the 14-year history of the event by beating Matt Kuchar, 6 and 5. His semifinal match will be

against Mark Wilson, gaining more respect the deeper he goes in the bracket. Wilson had an easy time in his 4-and-3 win over Peter Hanson of Sweden. That assures an American will reach the championship match for the first time since Tiger Woods won in 2008. The semifinal matches will be played this morning, following by the 18-hole championship match in the afternoon. With a strong breeze, firmer

Eight-team playoffs next to impossible By Kevin Sherrington Dallas Morning News

Even after two days of meetings labeled as “productive� — which apparently meant no one checked out of the Grand Hyatt DFW in a body bag — the BCS commissioners and their leader still couldn’t come to a conclusion as to what exactly a “plusone� model means. “That’s a word,� the Big Ten’s Jim Delany said, “that could sweep up a half-dozen models.� Of course, this was only the second time this year they’ve convened to consider the possibility of a college football playoff, the last gold mine left in all sports and maybe the only issue in an election year that could prompt Republicans to lie down with Democrats. The commissioners can still get it together. They plan to meet at least three more times before negotiating a new deal this fall with ESPN. Maybe they could work up a glossary in the meantime. But this much we know: However they define it, a plus-one is the only hope for a playoff of some kind in the next decade. A new deal likely would be for eight years or more, pushing back something more radical to at least 2023. If you were holding out for an eight-team-or-more playoff sooner, you should shoot for something more practical. Like unicorns. The have-nots, meaning the conferences without automatic qualifiers, would love a multitiered playoff when the new deal kicks in after the 2014 bowls. A bigger format would afford them a better shot at serious postseason green. The haves, as you might imagine, would like to keep all the loot to themselves. They can justify this desire any number of ways. The commissioners revealed little, holding the contents of their discussions as tightly as they did their garment bags while reporters cut them from the herd in the Hyatt’s hallways. But they weren’t hard to read. In a statement and in various interviews, they cited a desire to protect the regular season, “the best and most meaningful in sports.� They want to enhance the bowl system, not dispose of it. They’d like to avoid any games during exams, which span most of December. They’d like to keep the big bowls “closer to or on Jan. 1, the way it used to be.� How much of the above sounds like it could accommodate an extended playoff? Never mind arguing that college football’s other divisions manage a playoff system without having to forfeit their educational certification, or that no one seems to care as fervently about the academic integrity of basketball or spring sports. Those sports don’t culminate in what’s often a week-long boondoggle that in some industries might prompt a congressional investigation. The anti-playoff factions also employ the ruse of what’s happened to the basketball regular season, now almost irrelevant.

THE KANSAS CITY ROYALS’ MIKE MOUSTAKAS (8) WATCHES WHILE Eric Hosmer takes batting practice. The Royals held their first full-squad workout Saturday in Surprise, Ariz.

Few jobs open as Royals begin full-squad drills SURPRISE, ARIZ. — Although the Kansas City Royals lost 91 games last year, there are few jobs open in spring training. The Royals, who held their first full-squad workout Saturday with 54 players, began their youth movement in earnest last season with a dozen players making their major-league debuts — including heralded prospects Eric Hosmer and Mike Moustakas. “I imagine there will be some competition at second, in center and there will be some competition to see who is going to be on the bench,� manager Ned Yost said. “That’s basically it. We’ve got guys that are probably in a bit of a lead in some of those races. But again, it’s all going to come down to how we feel at the end of spring — which player gives us the best opportunity to win every day.� Johnny Giavotella, who hit .247 in 46 games after his Aug. 5 promotion, is the leading candidate to win the second-base job. Lorenzo Cain, who batted .312 last year with Triple-A Omaha, will likely replace Melky Cabrera in center. Cabrera was traded to San Francisco for lefthander Jonathan Sanchez. Missing from the workout were catcher Manny Pina, outfielder Paulo Orlando and lefthanded reliever Jose Mijares. Pina is returning today to Kansas City for knee surgery on Monday. Orlando has a hernia, and Mijares has been delayed in Venezuela by visa problems. The three-hour workout included pitchers throwing for 10 minutes off the mound for the first time.


Buescher Nationwide winner DAYTONA BEACH, FLA. — James Buescher was the surprise winner of the Nationwide Series opener at Daytona International Speedway, dodging a huge 11-car accident that wiped out the leaders on the final lap of Saturday’s race. Buescher was in 11th place as he rounded the final turn and weaved his way through a massive pack of spinning race cars. The accident, the third multi-car wreck in the waning laps, appeared to start as the tandem of Tony Stewart and Elliott Sadler charged to the top of the track to make a three-wide pack among the leaders. Kurt Busch was leading on the bottom of the track with younger brother, Kyle, pushing, and Kurt Busch seemed to start sliding up the surface in an attempt to block the huge run Stewart

was making. It triggered a chain-reaction crash that had many worried about the safety of the drivers involved. “I don’t even know where to start. I don’t even know what happened,� said Kyle Busch, who took a huge hit. “I thought we had the race won. Then those guys were coming on the top, and I thought, ‘We’ll see where we settled in here.’ When they all crashed up high, I was clear. I shot as low as I could, and somebody tagged me in the back and hooked me dead right. It was a really, really hard hit, and there were a few more after that. It seemed like they kept coming. “I swore when they all went up high. I was the leader for a second, and I’m like, ‘ I won this thing. I won this thing.’�

Crennel: Chiefs mull Manning INDIANAPOLIS — Kansas City coach Romeo Crennel says his team would consider signing Peyton Manning — if the four-time league MVP becomes a free agent. Crennel made the comment Saturday at the NFL’s annual scouting combine in Indianapolis. Manning’s future has been a hot topic around the city for months, and with the likelihood the Colts will not pay a $28 million bonus by March 8 to keep the four-time league MVP in Indy many are wondering where he will land. Most team officials and coaches have been wary of discussing Manning for fear of violating the NFL’s tampering rules. But when asked whether the Chiefs would pursue Manning, Crennel said: “With a talent like that, I would be crazy not to consider it if he were available.�


Oregon violations alleged EUGENE, ORE. — The NCAA is alleging Oregon violated the organization’s regulations in the way it used recruiting services over the past four years. The accusations were contained in two draft documents, labeled “Proposed Findings of Violations,� obtained in a public records request by several media outlets. While the documents use language that indicates the NCAA and the university agree to certain points, an athletic department spokesman says Oregon does not acknowledge any of the violations.

Individual titles push LHS to third at state By Benton Smith

WICHITA — The stage was nothing new to Reece Wright-Conklin. The 182-pound Lawrence High senior entered his Class 6A state wrestling tournament championship match Saturday night at Hartman Arena with two state titles on his ever-growing resume. With a steely intensity in his eyes, he took a knee, bowed his head and then popped up and slapped his tree-trunk-thick legs. Within minutes, a dominating high school career came to an appropriate ending as Wright-Conklin stuck Manhattan’s Trey Campbell for a pin and a third consecutive state title. After the official pounded the mat, signifying the championship, WrightConklin bounced to his feet and shot three fingers in the air. That was the extent of the celebration. With his experience, going crazy wasn’t the natural reaction. “I’m not one to celebrate too hard,” he said. “I did that my sophomore year, with my first one.” But it did mean a lot to Wright-Conklin — who followed junior Hunter Haralson’s 126-pound championship and helped the Lions finish third in the team standings — to win another title with LHS assistant coach Randy Streeter guiding him. The Lawrence assistant has helped mold the state champ since WrightConklin was a drastically smaller 3-year-old. The state championships meant the world to Streeter, too, who was celebrating his birthday. Clearly a perfectionist, Wright-Conklin had only one regret after scoring four pinfall victories at state. “I almost got every match with a pin in the first period,” he said with a smile, “but the last one, I got him in the second.” A Lawrence junior, Haralson gave the team its first individual state championship of the evening. The scrappy 126-pounder scored two points in the final seconds of the first period, and that proved to be enough for a 2-1 victory and a state title against Gardner-Edgerton’s TJ Stokes, who entered the tourney as the No. 1-ranked wrestler in his class. Even Haralson, who came in ranked No. 3 in 6A, couldn’t believe it worked out that way. Upon completing his 39-6 junior season on top, he admitted he was vulnerable in the third period and thought Stokes might be able to score in the final seconds to win. “I really had to fight at the end there,” Haralson said, smiling with a split lip and tears of joy still in his eyes. Upon having his arm raised as a state champion for the first time, Haralson raced to the side of the mat to celebrate with Streeter, who lifted the happy champion off the ground. “It’s the greatest feeling,” Haralson said. “No one in the world can understand how great that feeling is.” A different brand of emotions overcame LHS senior 220-pounder Brad Wilson after his cham-

LAWRENCE HIGH’S REECE WRIGHT-CONKLIN CELEBRATES after defeating Manhattan High’s Trey Campbell in the Class 6A 182-pound finals on Saturday in Wichita.

ABOVE: HARALSON CELEBRATES after winning his first Class 6A state championship, which he said was “the greatest feeling.” pionship match. Wilson immediately ran off the floor while fighting back tears after losing to Leavenworth’s Nathan Butler for the third weekend in a row. After taking a few minutes to reflect on his accomplishments in the arena tunnel, Wilson, who qualified for state as a junior but didn’t medal, said his second-place finish and 38-7 season weren’t anything to complain about. “Two years ago I wasn’t placing at any of these tournaments,” Wilson said. Although Lawrence didn’t have enough to catch 6A state champion Manhattan or runner-up Wichita Heights, the finalround performances of Lawrence’s top three state finishers helped the Lions overcome Derby, which led LHS by one point entering the finals, and earn a third-place trophy. “We knew it was gonna take a couple of our guys winning championships to seal the deal,” Lions head coach Pat Naughton said. Finishing with seven state medalists — a program high — helped that cause, too. Free State junior 182-pounder Spencer Wilson, the only Firebird to win a medal at state, wasn’t ecstatic about his weekend, even though he posted a 5-1 record and took third place. Spencer, who entered the tourney as the No. 2-ranked 182-pounder in 6A, hadn’t planned on wrestling so many matches. His goal was to win his first three bouts and earn a spot in the finals, preferably against Wright-Conklin. A second-round setback against Manhattan’s Campbell, however, put a major snag in those plans. Spencer bounced back with four straight wins in the consolation bracket, capping it with a pinfall victory in the third round of the consolation finals against Wichita Heights’ Jon Wilcoxson. Still, Spencer couldn’t help but feel “a little bummed” about being knocked out of state-title contention. “I was too focused on the finals match,” he said.

The Firebirds’ top grappler had defeated Campbell earlier in the season, adding to his frustration. “You always want to do better than you did,” Spencer said. Just a freshman, Lawrence 106-pounder Tristan Star had a successful state debut. The spry, wiry youngster earned a fourth-place medal and went 3-2 on the weekend. The biggest negative of his state experience was how it ended. Vying for third place in the consolation finals, Star injured his right elbow in the first period against Derby’s Cody McDonald. The LHS freshman grimaced in pain but insisted on finishing the match. Still feeling the effects of the injury after losing just 3-2, Star was consoled by Lions coaches afterward and had to be examined by athletic trainers. The Lions’ Caden Lynch (132) went 3-2 at state and earned a top-five finish. After suffering consecutive losses (one Friday, one Saturday), the LHS junior ended on a high note in the fifth-place match. Lynch was nearly pinned by Wichita South’s Caleb Warden in the second round and trailed 7-6 entering the third period. However, with 40 seconds to go in the match, Lynch pinned Warden’s shoulders to the mat for the victory. LHS senior Nick Pursel had to settle for sixth place and a 2-3 record, but his last two losses came by injury default after his left shoulder popped out of place in the consolation semifinals. Pursel had problems with the shoulder all season, and once it worsened, the senior was unable to finish his first match Saturday or compete in the fifth-place bout. Lawrence sophomore Garrett Girard also took sixth place at state. The 113-pounder won his first two matches of the tournament before losing three straight. Free State senior Andrew McLees (132) and his junior teammate Ben Soukup (152) were knocked out of the consolation bracket and medal contention Saturday morning.

KU women place third at Big 12 Championship J-W Staff Reports

COLLEGE STATION, TEXAS — Kansas University triple-jumper Andrea Geubelle, 400-meter sprinter Diamond Dixon and the KU women’s 4x400 relay team won first-place medals as the Jayhawks’ women’s track and field team placed third at the Big 12 Indoor Championships on Saturday. Geubelle won her first conference crown with a school-record jump of 13.59 meters. That distance ranks as the best in the NCAA this year and third-best among all athletes — collegiate and professional — in the United States this year. Dixon, who won KU’s first sprint title since 2008, was also a member of the winning 4x400 relay team. Dixon and teammates Denesha Morris, Paris Daniels and Taylor Washington set a school

record with a 3:31.36 mark. Their performance also ranks as the eighth-fastest 4x400 time in NCAA history. KU coach Stanley Redwine said he was “really excited” by the results of the women’s team. “We had four automatic qualifiers, two of our athletes are No. 1 in the nation, and one is No. 2 in the nation,” Redwine said. “That’s what we’re looking for.” The Kansas men took 10th place after the final day of competition. Next, the Jayhawks will split up and travel to the Arkansas Last Chance on March 2 in Fayetteville, Ark., the Alex Wilson Last Chance on March 2 in South Bend, Ind., and the ISU NCAA Qualifier on March 3 in Ames, Iowa. The NCAA Indoor Championships will be held March 9-10 in Boise, Idaho.

The Jayhawks (11-2) started off the day with a 9-1 victory in five runruled innings. KU jumped out to a nine-run lead in the first inning, led by junior Maggie Hull’s threeRBI home run. Freshman pitcher Alicia Pille pitched all five innings and allowed just two hits. In the second game of the doubleheader, Pille and junior Mor-

gan Druhan combined to blank the Seahawks, 3-0. Druhan pitched the first five innings, allowing five hits and three walks, but she stranded UNC-Wilmington runners on base three separate times, and Pille picked up the save. “It’s not easy no matter who you’re playing,” Kansas coach Megan Smith said. “We are really stressing to our players to be locked-in to every single pitch. When you’re playing multiple games in a weekend, it’s tough to do. We’ve talked to them a lot about refocusing for each game, and I think they’ve done a great job with that.”

Cyclones surprise K-State ————

Christopherson scores 29 for Iowa State MANHATTAN (AP) — The coaches who picked Iowa State to finish eighth in the Big 12 probably did not see this one coming. Scott Christopherson scored 29 points as the Cyclones (21-8, 11-5 Big 12) knocked off Kansas State, 65-61, on Saturday. “That was one of the best performances I’ve seen as far as timing,” ISU forward Royce White said. “We don’t win the game without (Christopherson).” After building a 37-27 halftime lead, the Cyclones allowed the Wildcats to close the gap with less than two minutes remaining. Kansas State freshman Angel Rodriguez made a free throw to tie it at 61, but Christopherson hit his fifth three-pointer and put

Texas trips Tech in OT LUBBOCK, TEXAS (AP) — Julien Lewis has heard it from his coach and his Texas teammates: Work to get inside to score and take the open shot. Longhorns coach Rick Barnes said Lewis did those things Saturday but sometimes got ahead of himself. The freshman scored 15 points and hit the go-ahead basket in overtime to lead Texas over Texas Tech, 71-67, on Saturday. “He’s got to take his shot but we can still put it inside,” Barnes said. “He’s getting into too big a hurry when he drove and anytime you have a guy that is as athletic and agile as him that’s slipping, he’s playing too quick.” The Longhorns led by 14 points in the first half and were lucky to come away with a win. They trailed 67-61 in overtime before J’Covan Brown hit two free throws and Lewis hit a 3 to pull within 67-66. Texas Tech turned the ball over the next four possessions, while Texas (18-11, 8-8 Big 12) got a layup from Lewis to go up 69-67. Myck Kabongo and Brown got three free throws combined down the stretch. “We never got a shot at the basket the last minute (and) 45 (seconds),” Texas Tech coach Billy Gillispie said. “Four turnovers in a row when you have the lead. You can’t do that to win.” Jaye Crockett scored 16 points and Jordan Tolbert and Javarez Willis each had 15 to lead Texas Tech (8-20, 1-15).

the Cyclones back on top 64-61 with 1:30 left. Rodriguez missed two free throws, but Christopherson left the door open by missing one as well. Rodney McGruder’s three-point attempt was no good, and

Kansas State had to foul. Chris Allen made one of two, and that was enough. “We’ve had a couple games where we’ve played very good stretches, but we haven’t closed out the game,” Iowa State coach Fred Hoiberg said. “Today we did that.” The win marked seven victories in nine outings for the Cyclones, who began the streak with an upset of then-No. 10 Kansas on Jan. 28. Iowa State is tied with Baylor for third place in the league standings. The Wildcats (19-9, 8-8) came into the game with considerable momentum, having secured consecutive wins over Top-10 teams for the first time in program history with victories at Baylor and Missouri. Henriquez led the Wildcats with 19 points, 12 re-

bounds and seven blocks, but even that performance could not save Kansas State from another home loss. “We’re a lot more enthusiastic coming in as the underdog,” Henriquez said. “At home, we tend to be a lot more comfortable. Either way, it’s something that has to change, and it has to change right away.” Thanks to perfect shooting by Christopherson, the Cyclones went on a 17-4 run in the first half to lead 37-27 at the break. After halftime, it quickly became more competitive. The Wildcats turned their halftime deficit into a 40-38 lead. “That’s one of the hottest teams in the country right now,” Christopherson said. “We knew they were going to make a run. We talked about it.”

Resilient OSU tops Texas A&M, 60-42 STILLWATER, OKLA. (AP) — An already-depleted Oklahoma State roster took another blow Wednesday when Le’Bryan Nash was lost for the season due to injury. Nash, the Big 12’s topscoring freshman, was averaging 13.3 points per game. Even before last week, coach Travis Ford was using an all-hands-on-deck philosophy. On Saturday, in a 60-42 victory over Texas A&M, that was the case again. Three players — Keiton Page, Markel Brown and Brian Williams — played at least 35 minutes each for the Cowboys (14-15, 7-9 Big 12). Michael Cobbins and Philip Jurick com-

bined for 55 minutes on the floor. Only two others, freshmen Cezar Guerrero and Marek Soucek, played more than 14 minutes. ”We just want to show people that even if we are down one, we can still compete,” said Cobbins, a 6-foot-8 redshirt freshman. “We need everybody to step it up a level and fill in (Nash’s) shoes.” Williams led the Cowboys with 17 points. Page scored 15 and Brown 12. Cobbins, Guerrero, Soucek and Jurick combined for 16 points and 19 rebounds. ”I’m very proud of our team for being able to come together the last couple of days and kind of respond from another injury,” said Ford. “We’ve

Soucek, a 7-foot freshman from the Czech Republic, entered Saturday averaging less than six minutes per game. He played seven minutes in the first half, contributing a baseline jumper, drawing an offensive foul and assisting on a threepointer by Williams within a five-minute stretch. Soucek finished with four points and two rebounds. ”I just told them that everybody is going to have to do something more,” said Ford. “It doesn’t have to be scoring. For us, 15 points is a lot of points, but it may be screening better, it may be rebounding better, it may be defending better.” Williams, who entered Saturday averaging 8.2

points per game, said: “This was one of those nights where everything was clicking. We were making shots, and everything was going well.” The struggles continued for A&M (13-15, 4-12), which was picked with Kansas in the preseason to challenge for top league honors. The loss was the Aggies’ seventh in their last eight games dating to a 76-61 win over Oklahoma State on Jan. 29 in College Station. Trailing 29-26 at halftime, the Aggies scored just 16 second-half points, losing to Oklahoma State for the first time in four games. The conference’s lowest-scoring team finished 19 points under its season average of 61.3.

BAYLOR GUARD BRADY HESLIP (5) IS FOULED bringing the ball up-court by Oklahoma’s Romero Osby. Baylor beat the Sooners, 70-60, on Saturday in Waco, Texas.

Baylor surges past Oklahoma WACO, TEXAS (AP) — For all the big bodies No. 13 Baylor has inside, those little shooters can’t be ignored. Pierre Jackson and Brady Heslip hit four three-pointers each, and both hit from long range in the Bears’ game-turning run midway through the second half on the way to a 70-60 victory over Oklahoma on Saturday. “We just had a hard time getting into our offense (before halftime). In the second half, we came out more focused and executed more,” Jackson said. “We all had a good game, but I was fortunate to get open and my teammates found me. I got some good screens, hit some shots.” The game was tied for the 12th time before Jack-

if they win out and the Jayhawks lose Monday at Oklahoma State and Saturday at home against Texas. “We’ve got eight of those things now,” KU senior guard Tyshawn Taylor said of Big 12 championship trophies. The 2011-12 hardware will be delivered by the league office to KU at a later date per Self’s wishes. “That’s what we play our season for. After every huddle, every timeout, we yell, ‘Big 12 champions.’ We got that today. It feels good,” added Taylor, who scored 24 points, including nine of KU’s 12 points in overtime. His two free throws with 8.6 seconds left in OT erased an 86-85 deficit. Remember: He missed two down the stretch in the meltdown loss at MU. “I talked to one of my best friends after the last game, and he told me, ‘Next time you see them, you’re going to be in a bigger situation and a bigger stage, and it’s going to mean more.’ He was absolutely right,” Taylor said. “It was the same team again, and I came through this time. I’m actually glad I got to shoot those free throws. And I knocked them down.” “For him to make the two free throws in the same scenario as he missed them in Columbia ... I thought that was great,” Self said of Taylor, who opened OT with a three. “How poised was he down the stretch? He made every play.” MU had a chance to win after Taylor’s two free throws, but the Tigers’ final possession didn’t even result in a shot. Michael Dixon dribbled slowly down court, then after heading left near the top of the key, dished to Marcus Denmon (28 points), who was unable to launch a long-range shot before the final horn. Yes, the clock expired, and defender Travis Releford ripped off his jersey and stood on the scorer’s table as the fieldhouse crowd roared at perhaps an all-time decibel level. “That reminded me a little of Davidson,” Self said of the final possession of KU’s 59-57 victory over Davidson in the 2008 Elite Eight. Davidson launched a wild, off-balance three at the buzzer that had little chance of going in. “We did a good job. They never got the ball in scoring position.” It was junior forward Thomas Robinson (28 points, 12 rebounds) who saved the day in regulation. First, he hit an inside shot, and free throw (following a foul by Dixon) with 16.1 seconds left, erasing MU’s 75-72 lead. “I just knew I had to get the ball off the glass, and that is all I tried to do,”

Robinson said. “He (Dixon) walked up from under me at the last second.” On the other end, Robinson skied to block a driving layup try of Phil Pressey with :02 left. That block assured overtime for KU and sent the crowd into a frenzy. “I think I had my eyes closed actually, to be honest with you,” Robinson said. Noted Self: “Thomas came from guarding the corner all the way over. That was a big-time play by a big-time player.” Robinson, who like Jeff Withey had two first-half fouls, sat out the final 41⁄2 minutes of the first half, MU’s lead going from two points to 12 (44-32) by halftime, a lead that grew to 19 the second half. “We were awful,” Self said. “We played so poorly. I thought we played tight, not to lose. I thought we got caught up in the emotion of the game. We played to protect it as opposed to go take. We were getting our butts handed to us. I knew something had to happen real fast or it was going to end sad. We did a much better job late. One thing as a coach ... you are down 19, and guys made plays. We showed some toughness making plays against a team that was on fire.” The 19-point comeback win tied for largest comeback in a KU home victory. KU trailed UCLA by 19 in the first half of a 85-70 win on Dec. 1, 1995. The biggest comeback in school history was from 22 down against Texas in a March 11, 2007, Big 12 tourney title game (an 8884 overtime victory). “It couldn’t have been scripted better for us,” Self said. “… We could have won by 20 and it wouldn’t have been as sweet as the way we won it today.” KU will meet Oklahoma State at 8 p.m. Monday in Stillwater, Okla.

KANSAS COACH BILL SELF LETS OUT A ROAR TO THE ALLEN FIELDHOUSE FAITHFUL after the Jayhawks clinched at least a tie for their eighth-straight Big 12 Conference regular-season title with an 87-86 overtime victory over rival Missouri on Saturday.

Warriors prove mettle Big comeback against the bitter rival ends with the home team winning, and we all know what happens next. The students make like water breaking through a dam and stream onto the court, forming a sea of flailing bodies. Not here. On game day, those who pay to walk through the door for a two-hours-and-change show don’t make it about themselves in Allen Fieldhouse, not when the athletes are under the same roof. They know the stage belongs to the players and don’t believe in desecrating it with the footsteps of mere mortals, even when the show happens to have been greater than any they had ever witnessed, replete with a plot twist as improbable as it was delightful. The patrons left the building Saturday sweating and smiling, shaking their heads over an affirmative response to a pair of questions they no doubt couldn’t stop asking themselves: 1. Did I really just witness my Kansas basketball team recover from a 19-point, second-half deficit to defeat the nation’s third-ranked team with Missouri on its chest in what could be the final time the rivals meet in a long, long time? Yes. 2. Did the coach who has on his roster a band of basketball players who lead more with emotion than intellect, so often don’t take great care of the basketball, shoot well only in streaks, are cursed with a penchant for spacing out, really just clinch a tie for his eighth consecutive Big 12 title? Even with an eight-man rotation that has two former walk-ons and a mid-major transfer still trying to find his way, and, oh, by the way, just one returning starter from a team that lost two lottery picks and a pair of starting perimeter players? Yes. How and how? The answers to both questions can be traced to the same qualities. The team that defeated Missouri, 87-86 in overtime, is packed with bold players who believe in their ability to win every battle. And they believe their general, coach Bill Self, will prepare them better than the other team’s general. What the players might lack in style, they more than compensate for with a loud competitive streak. Competing is what they do best. They believe nothing they face in games can be any more difficult than what they face daily in

final two minutes in Columbia, Mo., when it was the Tigers who stormed from way behind to victory. And then he gave it all away. In that one, he dribbled the ball away for one turnover, charged for another and missed a pair of free throws, all in the final two minutes. In this one, Taylor scored nine points in the overtime. Until these rivals meet again, Taylor can lay claim to having scored the final points, the final field goal and the final free throws against Missouri. He opened the overtime banging a three-pointer and again gave KU a three-point lead with 2:46 left on a sweet one-hander. Twice in a 20-second span of the last half-minute, Taylor turned a one-point deficit into a one-point lead. First, he cut back-door, and Johnson threaded a beauty to him, setting him up for a two-hand slam. And after Denmon hit a baseline shot with 12 seconds left, Taylor drove and was fouled. He made both free throws to give KU an 8786 lead that stood as the final score. On a day Taylor and Johnson combined for 13 assists and one turnover, Taylor and Robinson combined to make 15 of 17 free throws. Maybe now the gas bags who can’t seem to stop obsessing on the unsightly warts of Taylor’s game can instead appreciate its breathtaking beauty while a few grains of sand remain in the hour glass of his compelling KU career. Nobody personifies this team better than Taylor, so amazingly quick but at times not quick enough to get out of his own way, yet in the end best described in one word: winner.

T-Rob ‘great’ against Tigers By Gary Bedore

KANSAS’ THOMAS ROBINSON (0) SWATS A SHOT BY MISSOURI’S PHIL PRESSEY with seconds left in regulation to preserve a tie and force overtime. KU eventually prevailed, 87-86 in OT, on Saturday in Allen Fieldhouse.

Tiger coach laments War’s end By Jesse Newell

Missouri coach Frank Haith made it clear once again after Kansas University’s 87-86 victory over MU on Saturday: He isn’t convinced the KU-MU Border War rivalry should end after this season. “If you saw the atmosphere out here today and the atmosphere at our place, it’d be sad if we don’t play,” Haith said. “I just don’t understand it, and hopefully we can get to it and continue to play. This is too good of a game and too good of a rivalry to not play.” The contest had many similarities to the teams’ first game on Feb. 4, with the roles reversed this time. This time, Missouri was the road team that wasn’t getting the benefit of a home whistle. That included the final seconds

MU guard Marcus Denmon said he thought Pressey might have been bumped going into the lane. “We are on the road, so we knew we probably wouldn’t get a call,” Denmon said. “We were just

trying to get a good look at the basket.” Haith had a few words with the officials about the no-call before overtime began. “I was just hopeful that we could get the same contact calls on both ends,” Haith said. “If there’s going to be nocall, then there should be no-call on the other end. That’s the only thing I had a conversation with the officials about.” Haith’s main beef appeared to be a whistle a few seconds earlier. With KU trailing, 75-72, Robinson put in a layup while drawing a foul on MU guard Michael Dixon. Robinson completed the three-point play to tie it with 16 seconds left. “I want to see what happened on that foul,” Haith said, before pointing at a media member and winking, indicating

he wanted to say more but couldn’t. MU led, 67-53, with 10:40 left in the second half before being held without a field goal for six minutes, 50 seconds. During that time, KU went on a 13-2 run to close the deficit to 69-66. “We had the game in our hands, just like they apparently had the game in their hands in Columbia,” MU senior guard Kim English said. “We had the game in our hands. We gave them a gift.” KU’s victory secured at least a share of its eighth straight Big 12 regular-season championship under coach Bill Self. “Bill’s done a helluva job, boy, because that’s hard to do,” Haith said. “What’s he’s done is pretty amazing, and I have a lot of respect for what he’s done here, no question about it.”

KANSAS GUARD TYSHAWN TAYLOR DUNKS DURING OVERTIME, when he scored nine of his 24 points.

Kansas University basketball coach Bill Self had a heart-to-heart talk with junior forward Thomas Robinson on Thursday — a day after Robinson was whistled for a technical foul in the final minute of a 66-58 victory at Texas A&M. “I was really disappointed in him Wednesday. I think he was feeling pressure. Today he didn’t (feel pressure). He played to win. In no way did he think about anything but winning the game,” Self after watching Robinson score 28 points and grab 12 rebounds in KU’s 8786 overtime victory over Missouri. “He was great today. That’s what the best players do. They make plays with the game on the line,” Self added of Robinson, whose basket and foul shot tied MU at 75 with 16.1 seconds left. His block of Phil Pressey’s driving layup with two ticks left assured overtime. “Without being too critical, he was the polar opposite today than he was in College Station. That wasn’t him in College Station. Here’s a guy who didn’t play last year or as a freshman, wasn’t a McDonald’s guy (out of high school), not a highly recruited kid by highly recruited standards. He’s now one of two for national player of the year and has his family counting on him to do things and has everybody in his ear, doesn’t have people in his family necessarily tell him, ‘I’m proud of you regardless of what happens,’” Self added. Robinson was beaming after the victory. “It was big. Revenge, payback … it definitely feels good,” he said. “It felt like someone just jumped us (in building 19-point lead) and ran away, and finally we caught up with them. I can’t even put this into words. I don’t think I’m ever going to be part of something as big as this game was tonight. Just when I thought we couldn’t get to another level, we stuck together and got better tonight. “I don’t think you can put a team in a tougher situation at home,” added Robinson, who hit 10 of 21 shots and eight of nine free throws. “We were down 19 against a Top Five team and we stuck to it and got through it.”

Withey ankle OK: KU junior Jeff Withey, who twisted his left ankle in the opening minutes, had two points and a rebound in nine minutes. Withey did not need Xrays after the game. He will receive treatment in preparation for Monday’s 8 p.m. game at Oklahoma State. He reported on Twitter on Saturday night that the ankle is OK and he’ll be in the lineup Monday. “Thanks for all the support Jayhawk nation. My foot is fine. I sprained it, but I’ll be ready to play Monday. Rock Chalk,” Withey wrote. Coach Bill Self said he asked Withey at the end of regulation, “Can you win the tip (if he jumped center in overtime)?” “He gave me, ‘Uhhh.’ I said. ‘OK, you just answered my question.’ I don’t think he thought he could do it. I knew he couldn’t run.” Self added: “It’s unfor-

It’s two schools that fiercely don’t like each other hooking up and going at it. We saw the best they have to offer in Columbia. They saw the best we have to offer. It’s a shame it’s going to end, but it’s definitely going to end. Playing them once a year with nothing on the line doesn’t carry the same value as playing twice a year with a championship on the line.”

No. 1 Kentucky 83, Vanderbilt 74 LEXINGTON, KY. — Freshman Anthony Davis scored a career-high 28 points on 10-of-11 shooting, and Kentucky beat Vanderbilt on Saturday to win the Southeastern Conference regular-season title for the 45th time. The Wildcats (28-1, 140) have won 51 straight at home and are on a 20game winning streak overall. But Kentucky trailed at halftime and needed a late surge to put away the scrappy Commodores. Davis, who had 11 rebounds and five blocks, hit an 18-foot jumper as the shot clock expired with 1:06 left. Terrence Jones added a dunk, and Davis blocked Lance Goulbourne’s shot with 31 seconds to go to put the game away.

Stern suggests successor ORLANDO, FLA. (AP) — David Stern will reveal only two things about his future as NBA commissioner. He’ll be retired within five years, and he hopes Adam Silver replaces him. Stern endorsed Silver for the job on Saturday, calling the deputy commissioner and 20-year employee of the NBA a “first-rate, top-of-theclass executive.” “I guess I would say that one of the things that a good CEO does, and I try to be a good CEO, is provide his board with a spectacular choice for its successor, and I think I’ve done that, and that’s Adam,” Stern said, with Silver sitting at a table to his right. “That’s ultimately, if I had the decision, if I were doing it myself, he would be the commissioner.”

MIAMI’S MARIO CHALMERS RELEASES A SHOT DURING THE NBA All-Star Three-Point Shootout on Saturday night in Orlando, Fla. The former Kansas University standout lost a tiebreaker following the first round to eventual champion Kevin Love of Minnesota.


Utah’s Evans dazzles ————

Love wins Three-Point Shootout ORLANDO, FLA. (AP) — His nickname is the Human Pogo Stick, and Utah’s Jeremy Evans set out to put some bounce back into the Slam Dunk Contest. Evans endeared himself to the fans with a mix of props and creativity, and they voted him the winner of one of the marquee events of the NBA’s AllStar Saturday festivities. Evans, who got into the competition as a replacement for injured New York guard Iman Shumpert, earned 29 percent of the 3 million votes cast by fans. He beat out Houston’s Chase Budinger, Indiana’s Paul George and Minnesota’s Derrick Williams for the Jazz’s firstever trophy in the contest. In a departure from past dunk competitions, fans were given complete voting power and cast their ballots by text message after each of the four participants competed in three one-dunk rounds. Evans dunked with a camera on his head, slammed two basketballs while jumping over a seated assistant and donned a Karl Malone jersey while dunking over mailmandressed comedian Kevin

Hart. Budinger got just as many cheers from the Amway Center fans as Evans, and some in the celebrity-filled crowd sighed when the winner was announced. Budinger got his loudest cheer when he donned a Cedric Ceballos jersey and imitated his 1992 blindfolded dunk, completing it with a reverse slam. Kevin Love knows something about dunking. He does most of his dirty work inside for the Minnesota Timberwolves, but he got to show off his outside touch on Saturday night. Love beat out Oklahoma City star Kevin Durant to win the ThreePoint Shootout. The former UCLA star was consistent throughout, but had to survive a tiebreaker in the first round and sweat out the last few shots from Durant to pull out the 17-14 victory in the final. Love is in the middle for a breakout year for Minnesota, averaging 25 points and 9.9 rebounds a game. But he also has connected on 49 of 141 3-point attempts for the Timberwolves. Celebrities lined the

court for the appetizer before Sunday’s NBA AllStar game, and the first event saw the continuation of the good vibes that New York Knicks sensation Jeremy Lin has brought to the Big Apple recently With Knicks super fan Spike Lee looking on, Team New York had the touch from the outside and won the Shooting Stars event. Former Knicks star Allan Houston nailed his third attempt at a half-court shot to give his team consisting of current Knicks guard Landry Fields and Cappie Pondexter of the WNBA’s New York Liberty the victory. San Antonio point guard Tony Parker then won the Skills Competition. Parker was the only one of six participants to break 30 seconds in the first round (29.2) and this time of 32.8 in the final run on the obstacle course was better than Boston’s Rajon Rondo (34.6) and New Jersey’s Deron Williams (41.4). Love was tied for third after the opening round of the Shootout and beat Miami’s Mario Chalmers 5-4 in a tiebreaker.

However, Stern said the choice would be left to the owners, and he’s given them no indication when they will have to make it. Stern committed to a minimum of five more years on the job after the previous collective bargaining agreeStern ment was ratified in 2005. He said he’s told them nothing now, though he said the discussion would come “very soon.” He repeated what he’s said previously about not being around to handle the next round of negotiations, which could be in 2017 if either side exercises its right to opt out of the 10-year deal.

“I’m not going to be here when it either is or isn’t reopened in six years,” he said. Silver was already the lead negotiator during the recent labor talks, leading owners through a fivemonth lockout to a new deal in which they saved about $280 million a year in player salary costs. Stern passed the microphone to Silver on a couple of occasions Saturday for questions about the league’s future that Stern, 69, may not be around to answer. He has plenty of business to complete now. He will meet Sunday with leadership from Sacramento and the Maloof family, who own the Kings, as the sides try to beat a March 1 deadline to complete a plan to finance a new arena the city needs to keep the team.

Local high school film experts debate picks By Sarah Henning

Each year, the Oscars celebrate the very best in film. But as to who will be named the best of the best? That’s anybody’s guess. So we let film students do the guessing. We talked with kids from the film programs at both Lawrence High School and Free State High School in a roundtable format. They shared who they think will win, who should win and who totally got snubbed out of this year’s Academy Awards.

Best Supporting Actress Lawrence High’s Andrew Stussie and Eddie Loupe really wish Melissa McCarthy would win for her role in “Bridesmaids” — though comedy is very seldom celebrated by the academy. “For me, I find it harder to be funny than to do a really good dramatic performance, so I value a good comedy performance over drama, overall,” says Stussie, a senior. “She stole the scene in every part she was in.” The seven Free State students interviewed also liked McCarthy as a performer but didn’t think she’d win, either. As to a winner they were staunchly divided between Octavia Spencer from “The Help” and Bérénice Bejo of “The Artist.” Sophomore Tara Foster’s vote went to Bejo “because (‘The Art-

Best Supporting Actor The Free State roundtable had a much easier time agreeing on the best horse in the supporting actor race: Christopher Plummer of “Beginners.” Senior Brogan Sievers sums it up with shrewd reasoning: “Because ‘Beginners’ isn’t even nominated for anything else, even though it should be.” Meanwhile, the Lawrence High film contingent had a hard time deciding whom to award. Loupe says he likes Max von Sydow as an actor but didn’t like the film for which he was nominated: “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close.” Both liked Jonah Hill’s performance in “Moneyball” — as did the Free State group — but agreed that it was only outstanding because it was elevated by the film’s writing and lead performance by Brad Pitt.

Depth of field important for focusing on subject


hen I photograph a KU football game, even outdoors in daylight, I choose a large aperture (f/2.8, f/4.0) for creative purposes. A typical sunny-day exposure, using a sensor sensitivity setting (ISO) of 200, would be around f/4.0 at 1/2000th. From last week’s column you may recall that smaller f/stop numbers represent larger apertures, which means less depth of field (DOF). Depth of field is an area in front of and beyond your point of focus that also remains in focus. Why would I want less DOF at a football

game? Many photographers do this to place emphasis on one plane of focus, i.e., a runner with the ball. A shallow DOF will render foreground and background subjects less

sharp. It’s a creative technique that directs the viewer’s eye to a particular object or subject. If I were not skilled at photographing football, I could choose an exposure with a smaller aperture to provide greater depth of field. This would make it easier for me to catch a running athlete in focus. An equivalent exposure of ISO 200 and f4.0 at 1/2000th that would improve my DOF would be ISO 200, f8.0 at 1/500th. My shutter speed is slower but I have gained some significant depth of field by changing my aperture

from f4.0 to f8.0. Check out the depth of field calculator at the html. By entering your camera model, lens focal length, subject distance and your f/stop you can determine depth of field. Entering the two exposure scenarios above into the chart and using a Canon 5D camera, a 300mm telephoto lens, and a subject 50 feet away, my DOF at f4.0 is 2 feet and at f8.0 about 4 feet.

Nostalgic Oscars party like it’s the 1920s again By David Germain Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — It’s only the 84th year of the Academy Awards, yet the nostalgia factor feels as though Hollywood is celebrating a centennial of some sort. Film itself has been around for well over a century, and Sunday’s Oscar nominees span every decade of the last hundred years, with an unusual emphasis on the history and artistry of cinema’s earlier days. Oscar show producer Brian Grazer says that the Hollywood & Highland Center, the hall formerly known as the Kodak where the ceremony takes place, will be redesigned to resemble a “timeless movie theater.” It’s a fitting transformation on a night whose key nominees are “Hugo” and “The Artist,” two love songs to forebears of the flickering image. Set amid the transition from silent cinema to talking pictures in the late 1920s, “The Artist” is the best-picture favorite and would become the only silent movie to win top honors since the first Oscar show 83 years ago. The leader with 11 nominations, “Hugo” was made by Martin Scorsese,


Thus, Stussie ended up picking Nick Nolte’s tragic father from “Warrior.” “I felt really sympathetic for his character because the couple times he’s trying to rebuild what he messed up as a father and the (son) is like, ‘No, I’m done with you as a father,’” Stussie says. “And then you see him break down ... It’s like, ‘Oh, my.’”

Best Actress In this category, students from both schools felt drawn to a young artist — “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” actress Rooney Mara — though neither group seemed to think she had a shot to win. Instead, the Free State students like both Michelle Williams from “My Weekend with Marilyn” and Meryl Streep. Junior Megan Deitz is staunchly in the Streep camp. “Meryl Streep in ‘The Iron Lady’ was so good because she had to play so many roles from old Margaret Thatcher to kind-ofmiddle-aged prime minister,” she says. “So good!” Loupe and Stussie agree the award is probably between the two most experienced actresses in the category. “I would have to say it’s between Glenn Close and Meryl Streep, just because, obviously, they like to give Oscars to Meryl Streep,” Loupe says of the actress, who has won two Oscars and been nominated a total of 17 times. “And Glenn Close, obviously, being a cross-dresser, that’s something that’s very big Oscar bait.” Best Actor Lawrence High’s Stussie thinks Brad Pitt, who has been nominated three times for best actor but never won, should take home the prize. “I’m going to go with Brad Pitt because I am almost always a fan of most of the Brad Pitt movies,” Stussie says. “He has such a good, diverse repertoire of movies, and he’s good in almost every movie, even if the movie itself isn’t great, he’s still almost always consistently good.” Meanwhile, most of the Free State kids liked Pitt’s friend George Clooney the most in the category,

arguably Hollywood’s biggest cheerleader for the rediscovery and preservation of early films. Adapted from Brian Selznick’s children’s book “The Invention of Hugo Cabret,” the film centers on a boy and girl in 1930s Paris who unravel a mystery surrounding French film pioneer Georges Melies (Ben Kingsley), whose fantastical silent-era shorts of 100 years ago or more are recreated by Scorsese using the best technology modern digital Hollywood has to offer. Known for tough, violent adult stories such as “Raging Bull” and bestpicture winner “The Departed,” Scorsese clearly had a ball making his first digital 3-D film. Using today’s technology to revisit the past also imparted a sense of the innovation required by Melies to make his films in the first place. “Every time we put the camera in a position I wanted, we discovered new ways to do things or wrong ways to do things,” Scorsese said. “We had to rediscover how to make movies every day, every setup.” “The Artist” is right behind with 10 nominations and also is favored to win best director for French filmmaker Mi-

chel Hazanavicius. People thought he was a little soft in the head a few years ago when Hazanavicius pitched his idea of making a blackand-white silent film the way almost no one has since the 1920s. Modern dabblers in silent cinema often take an avant-garde approach, but Hazanavicius wanted to make something for general audiences. After all, there was a time when silent movies were the only game in town, and Charles Chaplin, Buster Keaton and D.W. Griffith were the blockbuster filmmakers of their era. Writer-director Hazanavicius settled on a comic melodrama following the decline of a silentfilm superstar (best-actor nominee Jean Dujardin), whose career crumbles in the sound era and who finds a guardian angel in a rising talent (Berenice Bejo, a supporting-actress contender and Hazanavicius’ real-life romantic partner). On a nostalgia-tinged night, it also makes sense that Billy Crystal returns as Oscar host for the first time in eight years. The most-beloved modern Oscar emcee, Crystal is back for his ninth time, second only to Bob Hope, who was host at 19 ceremonies.

though they said Jean Dujardin of “The Artist” was a primary contender. “Jean Dujardin was amazing,” sums up Foster.

Best Director Both discussion groups had a tough time with this category. Each had reasons why each director in the category — Michel Hazanavicius, Alexander Payne, Martin Scorsese, Woody Allen and Terrence Malick — should or shouldn’t win. “I feel like a lot of this year is just like giving directors their due because they’ve been kind of shirked otherwise, especially Martin Scorsese and Woody Allen,” Loupe says. “I feel like ever since Martin Scorsese didn’t win for ‘Goodfellas’ they’ve been trying to pay him back. I feel like that’s what’s going on this year.” Best Picture The Free State contingent is nearly 100 percent in agreement about “The Artist” being the best picture of the year. Not only do they think it is a good movie but also that it’s the type of movie Oscar voters usually pick. “‘The Artist’ is like ‘The King’s Speech’ without any talking,” notes Foster with a laugh. Both Lawrence High students also chose “The Artist,” but said they en-

joyed other movies a bit more as theater-goers. “My personal choice for best picture is probably ‘Moneyball’ or ‘Hugo,’” says Stussie as Loupe nods. “I thought ‘The Artist’ was pretty good, but it just felt a little bit formulaic. Even though it was a really good experiment in silent filmmaking, and it worked really well, I felt like some of the things didn’t exactly click all the way.”

Snubs! The snub agreed upon by both groups? “Drive.” The dark Ryan Gosling action-thriller about a stunt driver who serves as a getaway driver in a job promised to help keep goons away from his love’s family hit all the right chords with this crew. Yet it earned only a lone nomination for sound editing. Loupe sums up their disappointment. “‘Drive’ was so good. The direction, cinematography, editing, obviously Ryan Gosling was excellent. It was just really good all around,” Loupe says. “It did suffer a little bit in acting on the antagonist roles, I felt like, but not enough to shirk it from this, and I thought it was better than ‘Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close’ — which is definitely Oscar bait.”

A modern Charles Dickens Prize-winning journalist goes deep into Mumbai slum By Jessica Gelt Los Angeles Times

When a big bank goes bust in Manhattan, forcing a thriving construction site in Mumbai to shut down and the price of recyclable scrap to plummet, entire families in the slums of India go hungry. This is the butterfly effect of the harrowingly interrelated global economy described in Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Katherine Boo’s first book, “Behind the Beautiful Forevers: Life, Death, and Hope in a Mumbai Undercity.” This narrative nonfiction work catalogs a period of three years, beginning before the global market crash of 2008, of the Husain family, supported by a teenage trashbuyer named Abdul, and others who scrape together a living in a slum called Annawadi on a half-acre of polluted land beside the gleaming Mumbai international airport. Mumbai is a city “that has this incredible contradiction,” Boo says over the phone recently from her hotel room in New York City. “It’s expanding, it’s prosperous, yet 60 percent of its residents live in poverty. It’s one of the richest cities in India, but life expectancy is less than in other places.” She chose to base herself in Annawadi, which she describes as a “sumpy plug of slum,” because of the contrast provided by its location and because it was a manageable size and she was allowed, however wearily at first, to shadow its residents. The result of these exhaustive efforts has garnered rave reviews and elicited comparisons to the work of Charles Dickens and his skillful portraits of urban poverty. In order to gain the detailed insight with which she writes about her sub-

jects, Boo says she had to “earn” her facts. This enabled her to write about a frame of mind or way of thinking not because somebody told her about it, but because she witnessed it repeatedly. Annawadi, which is home to 3,000 exhausted souls, is hidden from view of the airport by a fence papered with ads for fancy Italianate tile that repeat the words “beautiful” and “forever” over and over again. This is where the book gets its title. The economy is fueled by those salvaging, stealing and recycling trash and scraps. The book depicts a modern India in the throes of embracing the Western-spun dream of unchecked capitalism and the upward mobility that supposedly comes with it — one that is helping to break down what many deem an anachronistic caste system. The great irony exposed within the book’s finely wrought pages, however, is the lie of equality in the new age of global markets, particularly when it comes to the extremely poor. A staff writer at the New Yorker, Boo had written extensively about

Now, not yet 25, he’s on his fourth novel, and it’s as polished as the Vermeulen-Sickerts’ silver, a literary guilty pleasure. As tutor, Barol finds a place between upstairs and down. He lodges under the eaves with two male servants, but he dines with the family and spends his leisure time with them. Proximity becomes, to him, like destiny: With his good looks and keen sense of style, he’s soon passing for a member of the upper class, never imagining anything different. When his position is threatened, which happens on more than one occasion, the realization that he has nothing, and nothing to return to, is almost too much to bear. Barol has a friend in the footman, Didier Loubat, a handsome blond with an eagerness to help Barol settle in. They share their

poverty and the disadvantaged in America. She was awarded a Pulitzer Prize for public service in 2000 for a series of stories for The Washington Post about group homes for the mentally impaired. Boo wanted to better understand how the infrastructure of opportunity was working in the world’s most impoverished places and decided that the best way to do that was “to stay in one place to see who got rich and who didn’t.” She became interested in using India as a prism through which to view the mutability (or not) of poverty after meeting and marrying an Indian man nearly a decade ago. To write “Behind the Beautiful Forevers,” Boo lived in Mumbai for three years, visiting Annawadi with an interpreter almost daily, trailing its residents, interviewing them extensively, taking notes, scouring public records and lending her Flip video camera to the slum’s children. The end product is a richly detailed tapestry of tragedy and triumph told by a seemingly omniscient narrator with an attention

to detail that reads like fiction while in possession of the urgent humanity of nonfiction. In Boo’s Annawadi, a cripple named One Leg who likely drowned her 2-year-old daughter in a bucket because the child was sick sets herself on fire and blames the act on Abdul out of jealousy of his family’s relatively elevated position in the slum. That terrible event and its aftermath serve as the book’s main plot as Abdul and his family are forced to deal with India’s corrupt criminal justice system. Throughout, Annawadi is revealed as a place where police beat and deprive the homeless, and where hopeless souls fish for food in a blue-black sewage lake. During monsoon season, maggots breed in wounds wrought by trash picking; and a little boy who cuts his hand completely off in a plastic shredder apologizes to the plant’s owner and promises not to report the incident. This landscape of misery is made even more striking by the fact that the disadvantaged of Annawadi prey upon the even more disadvantaged, causing what meager upward mobility there is to be gained at the expense of the book’s most tragic figures. “Is globalization good or bad?” asks Boo. “What I’m trying to show over time is that people are very vulnerable. I had never given any thought to the economics of recyclable trash.” To maintain the material’s urgency, she “tried to write down some of the experiences that I had almost immediately after the experience so I wasn’t coming to them cold years later and building a scene with Lego,” says Boo, who while reporting the book lived in a simple but nice apartment that “had running water all the time” as well as a bed, a desk and two chairs. “People say, ‘Could you have lived in Annawadi?’” she says. “I could not. I would have spent so much time doing just the work it takes to live that I couldn’t possibly have worked.”

By frequently moving between the characters’ points of view, hopping from one to another as they talk or dance, Mason builds tension. We know what everyone wants, and we can see when those desires are set on a collision course.

Rowling’s next book for adults NEW YORK (AP) — Adult fans of J.K. Rowling can rejoice: She has a new novel coming, for grown-ups. The author of the megaselling “Harry Potter” series has an agreement with Little, Brown in the United States and Britain to release her first adult novel, the publishers announced Thursday. The title, release date and details about the book, long rumored, were not announced. A neighbor of Rowling’s in Edinburgh, author Ian Rankin, tweeted Thursday that he thinks Rowling has written a mystery novel. “Although I’ve enjoyed writing it every bit as much, my next book will be very different to the Harry Potter series,” Rowling, 46, said in a statement released by Little, Brown.

Down to business: Tips for starting your own venture By Sarah Henning

When Jennifer O’Driscoll decided to take the leap to go into business, she wanted to land on her feet, just like the cats she hoped to treat — a scary proposition for a woman who knew exactly what she was doing as a veterinarian but not necessarily as a business owner. “In veterinary school we had one very short veterinary economics class that touched on business a little bit,” O’Driscoll says. “But it was a mystery to me where to get information on how to start a business.” O’Driscoll spent a year working full-time — yes, she quit her job — on starting up the business that would become The Cat Clinic of Lawrence, 1701 Mass. Once she finally opened last Halloween, O’Driscoll had gained tons of knowledge on exactly how to open, manage and survive her own business. We talked with her and one of her advisers, Will Katz of the KU Small Business Development Center, about how to start a new business — something Katz says a lot of Lawrence folks are looking into these days. “Most years, we’ll probably council somewhere in the neighborhood of 200 to 250 people who are interested in startups,” says Katz, who teaches a free seminar every other week specifically aimed at starting new businesses

VETERINARIAN JENNIFER O’DRISCOLL CHECKS OUT CARL, a temporary resident cat from the Humane Society getting some treatment and is up for adoption. O’Driscoll launched her cats-only vet clinic on Halloween 2011. She went to the KU Small Business Development Center for some guidance and now operates The Cat Clinic of Lawrence, 1701 Mass.

BUSINESS CENTER KU Small Business Development Center 646 Vt., Suite 200 843-8844 on the right foot. “And I’d say probably 40 to 50 of them usually start businesses.” We also tabbed Matt Richards, co-owner of Made, 737 Mass., about how he and his wife, Jennifer, managed to open their handmade boutique July 1. The pair have professional backgrounds, so they needed little counseling on the more difficult matters (Matt practiced law and Jennifer is currently an accountant) but had other

questions they needed answered — ones you’ll probably need answered, too, if you plan to start your own business.

Steps to success Write a business plan. Katz says before you do anything else, write a business plan. It doesn’t have to be fancy and you don’t need to purchase software or a template or anything special to do it. All you need is a blank piece of paper. “For most small startups, we’re talking four, five, six pages. It does not need to have a bunch of pie charts or fancy graphs,” Katz says. “It just needs to outline the major steps that you need to take and some of the key elements of starting that business.” For O’Driscoll, her

How does the economy seem to affect expressions of faith in your estimation? Wealthy, poor drawn to comforting religious messages Robert Minor, professor emeritus in Kansas University’s religious studies department, 1300 Oread Ave.: Worldwide, the relationships of religions and an individual’s economic circumstances show much versatility. Historically religion has sanctified every economic state in which devotees find themselves. I was reminded of this years ago while living in India. An Indian Christian leader and friend explained: In south India where Christians tend to be poorer and lower caste, the message from pulpits is that God especially loves the poor and suffering; in churches in Calcutta, where Christians tend to come from the upper classes, the message from the pulpit is that God rewards the truly faithful with economic prosperity.

Religious expressions support people’s current economic circumstances. They help them feel that they Minor have hope, here or hereafter, against overwhelming economic circumstances when they’re in need, or they justify the great disparity between their wealth and others’ need when they’re among a society’s rich and powerful. Religions have been used to support the earnings and inheritances of Hindu rajas, Buddhist kings, Muslim shahs, Christian rulers, and Chinese emperors known as Sons of Heaven. In such cases one hears of the many ways not to take literally each religion’s

equivalent of verses such as: “It’s harder for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven than a camel to pass through the eye of a needle.” Concepts such as karma have been used to argue that the wealthy deserve to be rich if not because of what they’ve done in their current lives then because of good deeds supposedly performed in previous births. But the prophetic voices within many of these same religions have also stood up for the dignity of those who find themselves in economic straits, and even at times condemned “the rich” who look down upon the poor. Whether rich or poor, people regularly gravitate to religious teachings that comfort them economically. — Send email to Robert Minor at

Send your questions about faith and spiritual issues for our religion columnists to

Those who have less known to give more The Rev. Kent Winters-Hazelton, senior pastor, First Presbyterian Church, 2415 Clinton Parkway: I read an article recently with a provocative title: Is the recession good for your soul? While the sharp economic downturn has increased the stress in many households, for others there is a discovery of spiritual growth. The wisdom of spiritual and religious traditions throughout the ages has taught that we do not receive our personal value and worth from our possessions, riches or power. That worth is drawn from what is within each of us, how we integrate into our community and in our service to others. This bad economy has helped many recognize that the trappings of material wealth

are not necessary for a full, rich life. Previous generations have often looked back and Wintersdiscovered Hazelton that what they perceived as hard times often lead to spiritual growth. Studies have shown that during the Great Depression, congregations made up of the poor, the underemployed and the working class gave a higher percentage of their income to their houses of faith or to charity than did their more affluent neighbors. Perhaps they understood more deeply the pain of poverty as experienced by their neighbor and wanted to provide a degree of com-

fort and care. When they came across someone who was worse off, instead of thinking, “There but by the grace of God go I,” they thought, “There connected by the grace of God go I.” Like many religious communities, the congregation I serve has seen its financial support decline in the past three years. At the same time, the gifts our members give to the funds that help others, and the total percentage of our church’s budget that assists social services in Lawrence, has increased dramatically. As small step, perhaps, on the pathway of recovery for us and for our community. — Send email to Kent Winters-Hazelton at fpcpastor@

business plan brought up many questions she had to take time to answer. “Kind of taking your idea of ‘Oh, I want to start my own veterinary practice that specifically caters just to cats and everything cats and cat owners need.’ And going from that idea to: How do you get a loan? What permits do you need? And where’s it going to be? And how much money is it going to cost?” she says. “I knew it was going to be complicated but I didn’t know it was going to be that complicated.” Educate yourself. A big part of that business plan, and your time, should be research. Find out if you need licensing or registration to do what you want to do (in most cases you won’t). And get advice about the taxation piece. This was where O’Driscoll turned first to books and then to the KU Small Business Development Center for advice. Though she knew what it was to be a veterinarian, she didn’t know much about the business side of it. Katz says recognizing this divide is huge. “There’s a big difference from working in the business and working on the business,” says Katz, who adds that most of the time you won’t have to do everything you need to do. “It’s important to understand that distinction and educate yourself about all the other things you have to do in a business. Some of that is even making an effort

Answer : WHEEZE MOTION INTENT VULGAR ARMORY INFORM He was late for his job at the clock factory —


to understand something about accounting rules. Know what an income statement is. Know what a balance sheet is. Know what a statement of cash flow is.” The management piece. Speaking of balance sheets and cash flow, a follow-up question should be about management, Katz says. “Can I run this business?” he says you should ask yourself. “Do I have what it takes to manage it or can I put together a team that can manage it?” That question was huge for the Richardses when opening Made. Matt intended to quit his job as a lawyer to run the business, but had never worked retail a day in his life. Questions of novice management mistakes kept him up at night before the store’s opening this summer, especially when it came to the space’s physical retail stock. “The most difficult part, as two non-retailers, was how much inventory, stuff, do you need?” Richards says. “Leading up to the day we opened, I was very concerned that we were going to have big blank spaces. And we’ve got a small space anyway and we were going to have all this space and no inventory to put there. And, frankly, when we opened, it was pretty light.” Market, market, market. Another important question to ask yourself: “Are there people looking to buy what it is that I’m trying to sell? This is very important,” Katz says. “And how can I cre-

ate awareness about what I’m trying to do?” Money, loans and debt. And to get any sort of money, you have to know exactly who that market is and be dialed into it just as much as you are into the space and the name and the licensing. Katz says that when dealing with loans, investors or even your own money, you need to understand what ballpark figure you’re going to need to reasonably get things going. “There are a million service-oriented small businesses that people can start, but if you’re going to be running a business that has a location and carries inventory, you’ve got to understand that it’s probably going to be more expensive than you think,” Katz says. “That money’s not just going to fall into your lap.” Richards adds that after helping other people start businesses as a lawyer, he knew that when setting up a budget for Made the cost was going to be much greater than expected — something he and his wife planned for and made work for them. “We had a start-up budget — X is our number. And I told my wife just double that because I’ve gone through this before with others. In everything it will be about twice what you think it will be,” Richards says. “So we actually came in quite a bit under that, but it’s a little easier when you’ve helped others do that and you can be realistic and say, ‘This is what it’s going to cost.’”

TOOLS FOR KEEPING YOUR YARD IN TIP-TOP SHAPE include aerators or spikers and fertilizer and seed spreaders. Machines can be rented to dig plugs of soil from a compacted lawn, but using any tool that breaks up the soil and allows air and water to reach grass roots is better than doing nothing.

Getting the lawn in shape for spring


id you miss the lawn renovation window last fall? Even though September-November is the optimal time to get cool-season lawns looking good, core aerating and overseeding now will help. Cool-season lawns in this area are primarily tall fescue, Kentucky bluegrass and perennial ryegrass. Of the three, turf-type tall fescue performs the best in research trials for growth in shade, drought resistance and disease resistance. If you have a warmseason lawn with grasses including Bermudagrass, buffalograss or zoysiagrass, wait until they are actively growing in June to make any renovation. Many of the lawn problems I see are caused by or related to soil compaction. We walk on the lawn, play on the lawn, drive equipment like lawnmowers over the lawn, etc. All of these actions can compact the soil over time. Poor drainage can also cause compaction, and lawns with dense tree roots will benefit from being core aerated. Roots need both air and water. Bare spots and thin grass cover is not a good solution

to the air and water problem. Sometimes this leads to more compaction as soil dries out more rapidly. Bare spots and thin grass can also contribute to erosion. Eroded soil is known as sediment when it enters our waterways and is considered to be one of the biggest pollutants of Kansas lakes and streams. Core aerating alleviates compaction as well as helping to break up thatch; improving water, air and nutrient infiltration; releasing carbon dioxide from the soil; and encouraging root growth. Most lawns should be aerated once per year or at least every other year. Lawns with lots of use or with heavy clay soils may need aeration more

than once per year. The best way to core aerate a lawn is to use a machine called a core aerator. You can rent one from local equipment rental shops or hire a lawn care provider to perform the service. A core aerator has hollow tines that pull plugs of soil up and out of the lawn as the machine is driven over it. The plugs are dropped on the surface of the lawn and will break down within a few weeks. When core aerating, the machine should be driven across the entire lawn twice. Make the second pass at a direction perpendicular to the first. Another method of core aerating is called spiking. The process involves using solid tines or spikes to put an angular hole in the ground. There are even special shoes available that allow you to aerate the yard simply by walking around on it. Spiking is not as effective as core aeration with hollow tines, but is more beneficial than doing nothing. Once the lawn is aerated, put some turf-type tall fescue seed down on the bare and thin spots. Use a rake to scratch the seed into the sur-

There are many varieties of turf-type tall fescues available — look at the label on the back of the grass seed bag rather than the over-promising descriptions on the front. If you plan to use crabgrass preventer, apply it prior to April 15 (or about the time the redbuds are in full bloom). Irrigated lawns may benefit from an application of slow-re-

lease fertilizer in May, but otherwise Kansas State University recommends waiting until September to fertilize. Lawns that are fertilized in the spring often exhibit more stress in the summer than lawns that are only fertilized in fall. — Jennifer Smith is the Horticulture Extension Agent for K-State Research and Extension in Douglas County.

Kovel’s Antiques: Weller pottery maintains its appeal an 8-inch wall pocket that looks like a branch with berries for $173 and a 14inch tree trunk vase with an owl for $325.

By Terry Kovel

Weller pottery was first made in 1872 in Fultonham, Ohio, but by 1882 Weller had moved to Zanesville, one of the main cities where pottery was made in Ohio. Hundreds of thousands of pieces of decorative art pottery and florist wares were made at Weller Pottery before it closed in 1948. It was a profitable pottery because its products were designed in the prevailing fashion and appealed to buyers. By the end of World War I, many pieces were being made in molds, then glazed in a variety of color combinations. Vases, wall pockets, jardinieres and other pieces were made to resemble real logs or frogs, and traditional vases were made with molded shapes that look like branches, animals, birds, flowers and even carved ivory.

WOODPECKERS ARE HANDLES on this 8-inch-high Weller Woodcraft jardiniere. It sold for $76 last fall at Conestoga Auction Co. in Manheim, Pa. One very successful line, called “Woodcraft,” was made from 1917 to 1928. Each piece resembled a real log or tree trunk with raised birds, animals or fruit as extra decoration. The colors added to the illusion of real wood. The pattern is popular with Weller collectors today. “Kovels’ Antiques & Collectibles Price Guide 2012” lists a 19-inch Woodcraft vase with a squirrel and owl for $960,

My husband inherited an unusual oak chair from his grandmother. Our children call it “the scary face chair” because the chair’s back is a carved wooden face that does indeed look scary. A label on the bottom says “Made in Dayton, Ohio, by Stumps-Barnhardt.” Please tell me how old this chair is and what it’s worth. Your chair is called a “North Wind chair,” a style popular during the late Victorian era (18801900) into the early 20th century. The face, from folklore, was supposed to blow evil spirits away. Many U.S. companies made them. But take another look at the label on your chair. It says “Stomps-Burkhardt,”

not “Stumps-Barnhardt.” Gustave Stomps and his brother Joseph founded a furniture manufacturing business, G. Stomps Brothers & Co., in Dayton in 1859. The company became G. Stomps & Bro. in 1869, then StompsBurkhardt Co. in 1890, when Richard Burkhardt was named vice president and general manager. The company closed in about 1928. Your chair was made during the 1890s. Today it would sell for close to $500 if it’s in excellent and original condition. One of our sons found an interesting bottle in the woods near our cabin. It’s a lovely green-blue color and is embossed “Dr. Kennedy’s/Medical Discovery/Roxbury, Mass.” We would like to know who Dr. Kennedy was, what the “medical discovery” was and when this bottle was made.

Donald Kennedy (18121889) was born in Scotland and immigrated to the United States in 1833. Kennedy apprenticed with a currier, a person who works with leather, and studied medicine in his spare time. He began selling his “Medical Discovery” in 1848. A newspaper ad in 1854 claimed it was “the greatest medical discovery of the age” and that it was “warranted to cure every kind of humor [related to body fluids]” except “thunder humor.” It sold for $1 a bottle and probably contained a mixture of herbs and alcohol. Dr. Kennedy made several other patented medicines and became very wealthy. His son, Dr. David Kennedy, took over the business when Donald died, and he continued to sell the Medical Discovery until 1928. The value of your bottle in good condition with no stains is $100.

Please help me learn more about an old piece of luggage I own. It’s heavy, covered in burlap and has leather handles. The name tag and zippers are marked “Amelia Earhart Luggage.” The manufacturer is the Baltimore Luggage Co. Was the suitcase made for her, or did she just endorse the brand? Amelia Earhart (18971937) was a famous aviator who disappeared in 1937 while trying to fly around the world. Before that, she had made a lot of money promoting her career. One of the products she endorsed was a line of luggage that bore her name. She didn’t design the luggage, but she did approve its construction and insisted that it be well-made. The brand continues to be sold today, although the Baltimore Luggage Co. is out of business. A lot of vintage Earhart luggage sells online.

Covering doesn’t improve car’s appearance Dear Annie: We live in a new neighborhood and take pride in the appearance of our home and yard. We were very pleased when new neighbors bought the house next door and moved in. Unfortunately, they have a rusting vintage car that’s parked in the driveway next to our yard. I can see it from my window every time I look outside. Even though they cover it with a tarp, it is an unsightly blot on the neighborhood. Mind you, they neither drive this car nor work on it. There is no homeowners association in our area, and while the city has rules about cars parked on the street, there is none for personal driveways. How can I tactfully approach these new neighbors and ask that they put the car in their garage to increase the attractiveness of our

street? — Longing for Beauty in the ’Burbs Dear Longing: So you are not actually objecting to the car, which is covered. Rather, you find the tarp unsightly. Instead of making your first interaction with the new neighbors a complaint, bring over some baked goods, and welcome them to the neighborhood. Invite them to drop over for coffee. Get to know them well enough to ask about the vintage car and why it’s not in the garage. Maybe

Oscar dusts off vintage Crystal Billy Crystal hosts the 84th Annual Academy Awards (7:30 p.m., ABC). Just writing that sentence made me feel like I entered a time warp. Will Crystal’s return as host give the Oscars a boost? Or remind viewers that his heyday coincided with the early years of “Seinfeld,” the first Bush presidency and “Wayne’s World”? Crystal hosted as recently as 2004, but he’s most associated with the years that also saw him in hit films like “City Slickers” (1991). But what’s a decade or two? If the list of best picture nominees is any indication, nostalgia appears to be the order of the night. “The Artist” and “Hugo” celebrate the silent era. “Midnight in Paris” features a present-day character who happily time travels to the 1920s. “The Help” recalls the civil rights era, and even “Moneyball” glances a decade back. Designed to celebrate commerce and culture, box office and art, the Oscars tend to attract their largest audiences when the most popular films of the year are also honored. The stars aligned when “Titanic” and “Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King” cleaned up at the Oscars and attracted huge audiences. While this year’s highestgrossing films — sequels to the “Harry Potter,” ‘‘Transformers” and “Twilight” franchises — sold a lot of popcorn, they’ve been all but shut out from the hunt for the gold statues. Of the films nominated for best picture, “The Help” was the highest grossing, ranking No. 13 of the films released in 2011. “The Artist,” the film many consider the front-runner for the night’s highest honor, did not even crack the top 100. As the evening wanes, television becomes more about high stakes and investing the audience in the drama. That’s why so many successful 9 p.m. series involve police work that can be wrapped up in 43 minutes. Around 9:30 p.m., I can’t imagine how many people will really care to stick around to see which film they didn’t see take home the big award. With that said, let’s hope Crystal returns the Oscar to fun, razzle-dazzle and professional showmanship. Recent efforts to be hip and edgy, with Chris Rock and Jon Stewart as past hosts and last year’s tag team of Anne Hathaway and James Franco, were forgettable at best.

NATO pulls military workers amid protests By Deb Riechmann and Rahim Faiez Associated Press

KABUL, AFGHANISTAN — A gunman killed two American military advisers with shots to the back of the head Saturday inside a heavily guarded ministry building, and NATO ordered military workers out of Afghan ministries as protests raged for a fifth day over the burning of copies of the Quran at a U.S. army base. The Taliban claimed responsibility for the Interior Ministry attack, saying it was retaliation for the Quran burnings, after the U.S. servicemen — a lieutenant colonel and a major — were found dead on the floor of an office that only people who know a

The top commander of U.S. and NATO forces recalled all international military personnel from the ministries, an unprecedented action in the decade-long war that highlights the growing friction between Afghans and their foreign partners at a critical juncture in the war. The U.S.-led coalition is trying to mentor and strengthen Afghan security forces so they can lead the fight against the Taliban and foreign troops can go home. That mission, however, requires a measure of trust at a time when anti-Western sentiment is at an all-time high. Afghan Defense Min-

Abdul Rahim Wardak called U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta to apologize for the shooting and offer his condolences, Pentagon press secretary George Little said in a statement released in Washington. “This act is unacceptable, and the United States condemns it in the strongest possible terms,” Little said.

GOP governors concerned about long primary race By Beth Fouhy Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Democratic governors are bullish on President Barack Obama’s re-election prospects, citing the improving economy and a Republican nominating contest that has exposed deep divisions in the party’s base. Republican governors insist Obama is vulnerable, but they say they are concerned the prolonged primary race has alienated independent Obama voters and may have badly damaged the eventual nominee. Democratic enthusiasm and Republican apprehension were both on display at the winter meeting of the National Governor’s Association, an annual four-day conference where states’ top executives gather to discuss policy and trade ideas on best practices but where politics are always close to the surface. In interviews, many Democratic governors seemed almost giddy about Obama’s chances of winning a second term. They pointed to the improving employment figures, which have helped raise state revenues after

years of painful budget cuts. The national unemployment rate stood at 8.3 percent in January, down from a high of 10 percent in October 2009. “These Republicans that are running for president, they’re so depressing. Cheer up!” Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin said after Democratic governors left a White House meeting with Obama. “We’ve got some good news: a great president creating jobs, and governors who are seeing revenues rebound.” Even Democratic governors of some typically toss-up — or “purple” — states, said they like Obama’s chances. “In a purple state, people want to see results, and they also want to see a level of collaboration and teamwork. I think he is going to win Colorado,” the state’s governor, John Hickenlooper, said. Meanwhile, virtually no Republican governors were willing to predict their party’s nominee would prevail in November. Many lamented the drawn-out nature of the nominating process, in which the early frontrunner, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, has been weakened by the intense scrutiny of his wealth, business practices and shifts on issues as well

and the country’s Mandela hospitalized ailment, current leader said the with stomach ailment much beloved 93-year-old

JOHANNESBURG — Former South African President Nelson Mandela was hospitalized Saturday for a test to determine what is behind an undisclosed stomach

icon was in no danger. Mandela “has had a long-standing abdominal complaint and doctors feel it needs proper specialist medical attention,” Presi-

as the unwillingness of conservative voters to rally behind his candidacy. Many conservatives have coalesced recently around former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, Romney’s latest strongest rival as the contest moves to primaries in Arizona and Michigan on Tuesday and 10 contests on March 6. “I don’t know anybody who thinks if you started out to design a good process to pick a president you’d choose exactly what we have now,” said Indiana Republican Gov. Mitch Daniels, a former White House budget director who explored a presidential candidacy but ultimately decided against a run. Daniels said he would not consider jumping into the race even if Romney were to lose Michigan. Some Republican leaders have said privately that if Romney does not prevail in Michigan — a state where he was born and grew up and where his father served as governor — the defeat could serve as an opening for a party heavyweight like Daniels to join the field. “The problem I would worry about, and have all along, is that our side might not offer a bold enough and specific enough and constructive enough and, I would say, inclusive enough alternative to America,” Daniels said.

dent Jacob Zuma said in a statement Saturday morning, asking that Mandela’s privacy be respected. In a follow-up statement later, Zuma added that Mandela had undergone a planned, undisclosed “diagnostic procedure.”
