Women’s services threatened

45,000 Kansans use program that’s targeted for federal cuts

Stun guns used 8 times in 2010; new chief requires more training By Chad Lawhorn

Family planning and related preventive services for lowincome women across the nation are in jeopardy. These services include birth control, breast exams, testing for sexually transmitted diseases and pregnancy testing, and they are used by tens of thousands of low-income women in Kansas and millions nationwide. “These are important services for the women who use them,” said Kari Bruffett, assistant secretary for Policy and External Affairs in the Kansas Department of Health and Environment. “For some women, it may be their primary care provider.” Since 1970, the federal government has provided funding for these services through the Title X Family Planning Program. In mid-February, the House of Representatives voted to eliminate the program, which cost $317 million last year, as part of a massive spending bill that sets budget levels for the remainder of the fiscal year, which ends Sept. 30. That bill is now under negotiation in the Senate. “We are watching it very carefully,” Bruffett said. Here’s why: ● 45,000 — Kansans using Please see HEALTH, page 2A

THE LAWRENCE-DOUGLAS COUNTY HEALTH DEPARTMENT says it hands about 4,000 condoms per year, among other family planning and preventive services it provides. Registered nurse Roxie Dohogne was at work at the clinic, 200 Maine, on Tuesday.

Commuters between Lawrence and Kansas City have less than two weeks to relish the open highway that is Interstate 70. Kansas Turnpike Authority has tentatively set March 14 as the day it will begin construction on a three-mile section of I-70 just east of Lawrence. The work, which will require the interstate to be narrowed to one lane in each direction, is part of a $23 million project funded by KTA to replace six miles of 50year-old concrete road. The new road will have a 10-inch rock base and 18 inches of asphalt. Commuters likely haven’t forgotten when crews worked on the project last summer. That road closure, which

squeezed four lanes down to two, resulted in major traffic headaches, especially during the summer weekends and at rush hour on Friday afternoons. “We think there are a number of things that will make the project a little less painful,” KTA spokeswoman Lisa Callahan said of this year’s construction. “But there is no question there will probably be traffic delays during high-traffic periods.” In particular, Callahan said traffic could become backed up when commuters mix with weekend travelers. But, she noted, drivers will be on new pavement, which she believes will make traffic flow better as they enter into the construction area. The construction zone will run three miles east of the Lawrence service area, from

mile marker 208 to mile marker 211. Construction is expected to last until November. A single lane in both the eastbound and westbound side of the highway will stay open through the service area so vehicles can access the area. East of the service area, both eastbound and westbound lanes will merge onto one side of the highway as crews work on the other. KTA hasn’t decided whether crews will work on the eastbound or westbound side first. During the evening hours next week, lanes could be closed as KTA crews do work to the median to allow cars to merge to one side of the highway. — Reporter Christine Metz can be reached at 832-6352.

From swords to infected blood, Lawrence police officers had multiple reasons to deploy their Tasers in 2010, according to a new report from City Hall. They also had a couple of reasons to get a little additional training with the devices as well. New police chief Tarik Khatib delivered his first annual report on Taser usage to city commissioners on Tuesday, and said a 3-year-old program to add Tasers to the department had been a success. “Tasers really do help us take people into custody who are becoming aggressive or physically combative,” Khatib said. “A lot of times in that situation (without Tasers) we would have to go hands on or roll around on the ground with the suspect. That’s not a good situation either for the officer or the person we’re trying Khatib to apprehend.” In 2010, Lawrence police officers used their Tasers on suspects eight times. That’s up from two times in 2009. The department found all eight incidents to be justified and within the department’s policy, but Khatib said three of the instances perhaps could have been avoided by using a different philosophy. Khatib ordered additional Taser training for all police officers to review the department’s philosophy that Tasers are best used to prevent a physical attack on an officer or other person rather than simply as a tool to apprehend someone who is resisting arrest. “We found all of them to be legal and within our policy, but we thought perhaps other methods could have been used in three of these cases,” Khatib said. The three cases were: ● April 6, when a police sergeant attempted to use the Taser to stop a passenger who was suspected in an aggravated robbery case from fleeing on foot from a vehicle.

“To get to the outcomes we have accomplished requires a highly qualified and exceptional staff,” Thornton said. Kansas State University President Kirk Schulz noted that salaries are a favorite target of the news media and urged the KBA to find “some way to defend” them. More than a year ago, the board hired a consultant to evaluate the agency’s salaries. “We wanted to make sure that we didn’t suddenly find out that we were so far out of line that we (lost) a couple of top talents because we weren’t appropriately appreciating their work,” KBA Board Chairman John Carlin said. Since there are so few organizations like the KBA, it was hard to find peer organizations to compare salaries, but consultants found that the salaries were in the 75th percentile, Carlin said. “You get what you pay for,” Carlin said. “And if we are in the middle of investing half a billion dollars, do we want to go cheap in terms of staff?” Board member Bill Sanford noted that compared to the private sector, employee salaries are well below average. And board member Ray Smilor defended the state’s fifth-placed ranking in bioscience. “I think it’s remarkable we have gotten the national recognition in being a leader in science in the 21st century. I’m not sure that there is any other ranking other than basketball that Kansas has gotten that has brought this national,” he said. On Friday, KBA staff and board members will return to the legislature to discuss the agency’s spending.

TOPEKA — Environmentalists have called on the EPA to prevent construction of a proposed 895-megawatt coalburning power plant in southwest Kansas. In a letter to EPA Regional Administrator Karl Brooks, the Kansas chapter of the Sierra Club says state environmental officials at the Kansas Department of Health and Environment repeatedly failed to make the plant’s permit meet minimum requirements under the Clean Air Act. “EPA must either require KDHE to issue an amended permit, including new emission limitations following a

new public comment period, or EPA must take action to prevent the construction of this unlawful facility,” Amanda Goodin, attorney for the Sierra Club said in the letter that was released Tuesday. The dispute is over a proposal by Sunflower Electric Power Corp. to build an 895megawatt coal-fired plant near Holcomb. Last month, the EPA’s Brooks had written KDHE Secretary Robert Moser, saying that EPA found the stateissued permit for the plant was too lax in limits on emissions of nitrogen oxides and sulfur dioxide. Officials from Sunflower Electric and KDHE have defended the permit, which

was approved in December. On Tuesday, KDHE General Counsel Caleb Stegall said, “KDHE stands behind its permit as issued. We look forward to defending it before the Kansas Supreme Court and are confident that the permit complies with all applicable state and federal air quality requirements.” The letter from Goodin repeats allegations that state executive and legislative officials interfered with the permitting process. The letter also maintains that KDHE repeatedly ignored EPA’s guidance on federal air quality standards during the permit process. — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

Rotary leading way to eradicating polio By Karrey Britt

The world is close to eliminating polio, a disease that crippled thousands of children in the early 1900s. “It actually could happen any month,” said Robert Thompson, PolioPlus chair for the northeast Kansas district of Rotary International. He said there have been nine recent cases in the world, which has a population of 6 billion. “That tells you how close we are,” he said. PolioPlus is a humanitarian program launched in 1985 by Rotary International and was

They may have to go to a fee-for-service system, which he said would be unfortunate. “Those with low income or limited means will get disenfranchised from the system,” he said. There was a legislative amendment to the House bill that specifically targeted Planned Parenthood. Besides losing Title X funding, it would be ineligible for any federal funding, including Medicaid. Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri has 10 health centers that provide the same family planning and preventative services as

The individual pulled a knife and held it to his stomach and then began slashing his leg. ● March 7, when officers used a Taser on a suspect who brandished a gun and began chasing a car on foot.

health departments. In 2009, they provided 18,000 STD tests, 3,000 pap tests, 3,000 breast exams and birth control for 9,000 clients. Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri has an $8 million budget, and $1 million comes from federal funding. “We don’t know of any way we could sustain that kind of reduction without reducing the services for women and families,” CEO Peter Brownlie said.

No response was given when they were notified it doesn’t support such services. “This kind of action in Congress actually goes counter to the objectives of those who say they are opposed to abortion because by having less family planning, there will be more unintended pregnancies and there will be more abortions,” Brownlie said.

House’s $4B cuts avert shutdown The House passed emergency short-term legislation Tuesday to cut federal spending by $4 billion and avert a government shutdown. Senate Democrats agreed to follow suit, handing Republicans an early victory in their drive to rein in government. The bill that cleared the House on a bipartisan vote of 335-91 eliminates the threat of a shutdown on March 4, when existing funding authority expires. At the same time, it creates a compressed two-week timeframe for the White House and lawmakers to engage in what looms as a highly contentious negotiation on a follow-up bill to set spending levels through the Sept. 30 end of the fiscal year. In the Senate, Majority Leader Harry Reid said the short-term bill would win approval and be ready for President Barack Obama’s signature within 48 hours. “We’ll pass this and then look at funding the government on a long-term basis,” said the Nevada Democrat. 1 | WASHINGTON, D.C.

Huckabee: Obama grew up in Kenya Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee suggested in a radio interview that President Barack Obama’s childhood in Kenya shaped his worldview — even though Obama did not visit Kenya until he was in his 20s. The potential Republican presidential candidate told New York radio station WOR on Monday that Obama’s youth led him to resent the West, which he said explains why, in Huckabee’s view, Obama’s foreign policy differs so greatly from that of his predecessors. “One thing that I do know is his having grown up in Kenya, his view of the Brits, for example, (is) very different than the average American,” Huckabee said, pointing to Obama’s decision in 2009 to remove a bust of former Prime Minister Winston Churchill from the Oval Office. He failed to note that Obama replaced the Oval Office fixture with a bust of one of his American heroes, President Abraham Lincoln, and moved the Churchill bust to the White House residence. 2 | WISCONSIN

Gov. proposes deep cuts for schools After focusing for weeks on his proposal to strip public employees of collective bargaining rights, Gov. Scott Walker on Tuesday presented his full budget — a plan that cuts $1.5 billion in aid to public schools and local government but avoids any tax or fee increases, furloughs or widespread layoffs. Walker said the cuts could be paid for in large part by forcing government employees to pay more for their pension and health care benefits. And the governor whose cost-cutting ideas have stirred a national debate over public-sector unions gave no indication he would soften his demand to reduce their power at the negotiating table. 3 | LIBYA

Gadhafi forces fight for control of towns Moammar Gadhafi’s forces battled poorly armed rebels Tuesday for control of towns near the capital trying to create a buffer zone around his seat of power. The increasingly violent clashes threatened to transform the 15-day popular rebellion in Libya into a drawn-out civil war. Amid the intensified fighting, the international community stepped up moves to isolate the longtime Libyan leader. U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates said he ordered two ships into the Mediterranean, including the amphibious assault ship USS Kearsarge, and he is sending 400 Marines to the vessel to replace some troops that left recently for Afghanistan. Military leaders weighing a no-fly zone over Libya said it would be a complex task that would require taking out Gadhafi’s air defenses, and Russia’s top diplomat dismissed the idea as “superfluous” and said world powers should focus on sanctions. Gadhafi’s son, Seif al-Islam, warned Western forces not to take military action against Libya and said the country is prepared to defend itself against foreign intervention. 4 | NEW JERSEY

Schools get high marks in Kansas survey By Scott Rothschild

TOPEKA — As legislators consider deeper cuts to public school funding, education officials on Tuesday touted a new survey that showed strong support of Kansas public schools. “We hear a lot from anti-tax people,” said Mike Mathes, Seaman school district superintendent and president-elect of the Kansas School Superintendents Association. “It’s a vocal minority who are saying that schools are failing. I think this is a piece of data that says our public schools aren’t failing and it is a good investment,” he said. The statewide survey showed

that 82 percent of Kansans give their local school district a grade of A or B. Ninety-five percent say that up-to-date school buildings and student technology are important, and 94 percent said they “strongly agree” or “agree” that Kansas students should have access to equal educational opportunities, regardless of where they live. Other survey results: ● 83 percent said protecting funding for public education should be one of the highest priorities of state government. ● 89 percent said public education is worth the investment of tax dollars. ● 89 percent said decisions about what is best for local

ed additions and special education dollars, would be $6,447 under Gov. Sam Brownback’s budget proposal. That is down from $7,277 per pupil in 2008. The telephone survey included 500 completed interviews of registered voters taken from Feb. 9 to Feb. 23. The survey has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.9 percent. The research project was done by Patron Insight Inc. of Stilwell and co-funded by the Kansas Association of School Boards, Kansas School Superintendents Association, and the United School Administrators of Kansas. — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

Deal to sell Alvamar falls through Board of directors chairman says contract was ‘very near’ $6.5 million By Mark Fagan

A deal to sell Alvamar Inc.’s golf and recreational assets has fallen through, sending the company back into the market for a buyer. A contract extension expired earlier this week, severing ties between Alvamar and Iowa-based Legends Golf LLC, which had agreed in October to buy Alvamar’s two golf courses, clubhouse, dining room and related offerings. Bob Johnson, chairman of Alvamar’s board of directors, described the expired contract as “very near” the asking price of $6.5 million. “We think it is much less than likely that any sale will be consummated with this buyer, but if he can do it and wants to come back to the table, we’ll be there,” Johnson said. Alvamar now is “in discussions” with three prospective buyers, Johnson said, but “it is my assessment that that it is not real likely that any of them

Candidate hoping to equip city for economy MIKE DEVER HAS BEEN A STRONG VOICE for the purchase of the former Farmland Industries. Dever, who describes himself as a fiscal conservative, is seeking re-election to the Lawrence City Commission.

There were lots of questions. Lawrence city commissioners had just agreed to put two referendums on the November 2008 ballot that would decide the fate of Lawrence’s financially struggling public transit system. Among the cynical, the question was: What are you trying to do, kill the bus system? City Commissioner Mike Dever assured them that wasn’t the case. Among nervous bus fans, the question was: Do we have enough votes to win? Dever assured them that they did. Among casual City Hall observers, the question was: Mike Dever is the champion for

Mark Tallman, a lobbyist with the Kansas Association of School Boards, said he hoped the information would help legislators as they continue working on state budgets for the rest of this fiscal year and the next fiscal year, which starts July 1. “The public is concerned that we could end up damaging a system that they really value,” he said.

But the conservative side of Dever also insisted that the decision ultimately be left up to the people. Dever was the commissioner who lobbied that two transit sales taxes be their own separate questions on the November 2008 ballot, rather than being lumped in with a general sales tax that would have funded streets and several other items. “The community needed to speak on the transit issue because it really hadn’t spoken on it for 10 years,” Dever said. “I wanted a message to be very Please see CITY, page 5A

What happened to Dave Price and Maggie Rodriguez from CBS’ morning show? Have they gone somewhere else?


According to the Associated Press, Price and Rodriguez were replaced with The Early Show’s weekend anchor team of Chris Wragge and Erica Hill. Price announced in December that he was leaving CBS. A CBS News release stated Rodriguez might stay at the company in a different role, though her husband accepted a new job in Miami and said his family was coming with him.

Report outlines benefits of out-of-pocket spending caps By Karrey Britt

A car accident. A diagnosis of cancer. Hundreds of thousands of Kansans face the threat of catastrophic medical care expenses from unexpected injuries or illnesses. Under the Affordable Care Act, a new cap on out-ofpocket expenses will help families protect their health and budgets. It goes into effect in 2014. Families USA , a consumer health group, released a report Tuesday outlining benefits for Kansans if the cap were available this year: $5,950 — annual spending cap for individuals. $11,900 — for families. The caps will follow a sliding scale fee, so people with low incomes will pay less out of pocket than those with higher incomes. 156,200 — Kansans younger than 65 who will spend more than these caps. $232 million — amount Kansans will spend over the caps this year.

Two decades of rising health care costs have squeezed families into coverage with higher premiums, higher co-payments and higher deductibles, and sometimes these costs have forced families out of health coverage altogether. These families are terribly vulnerable to financial devastation caused by unexpected illness or injury, and they generally face only bad alternatives, including massive credit card debt, bankruptcy, even foreclosure.” — Ron Pollack, Families USA executive director

Driver claims no intent to harm bicyclist A 48-year-old Baldwin City man charged with injuring a bicyclist last July testified Tuesday he didn’t intend to hurt anyone as he passed and yelled at a group of cyclists south of Lawrence. Scott A. Young, 48, told jurors during his aggravated battery trial that he didn’t believe at the time he had struck cyclist Rob Wilshusen of Lawrence during an incident on July 15, 2010. But he said after hearing testimony in the case he believed Wilshusen fell after he had leaned into his truck as Young was passing him. Prosecutors accuse Young of yelling obscenities at a group of riders traveling south of Broken Arrow Park, swerving over into their lane and striking Wilshusen, who suffered cuts to his shoulder, back and hip and a hematoma on his left hip. But Young said he moved closer to the riders because he thought he was past them and was trying to avoid being on the left side of the road with a hill approaching.

All lanes were open as of 8:45 a.m. The accident happened in front of University Terrace Apartments just west of Emery Road about 8:15 a.m. • U.S. Highway 56 in southwestern Douglas County was closed Tuesday morning after a cattle truck rolled over near County Road 1029 in Globe about 3 a.m., according to Douglas County Sheriff’s spokesman Sgt. Steve Lewis. The highway reopened Tuesday afternoon. Lewis said the driver of the truck, who was hauling the cattle from Kentucky to Kansas, was not injured and approximately 12 cows died. Officers believe the driver was westbound on the highway when he reached down to grab an item and the right tires of the truck went off the shoulder of the road. The driver tried to correct course and the trailer, which contained about 50 cows, flipped onto its side. Officers, firefighters and veterinarians were on scene to clear the accident. Just before 8 a.m., Lewis said the cattle would likely be taken to a barn in Overbrook. The Journal-World does not print accounts of all police reports filed.

CITY COMMISSION BRIEFS Adult Swim carnival returning to downtown A street-style carnival at Eighth and New Hampshire streets has won approval from Lawrence City Commission. Commissioners at their Tuesday evening meeting agreed to allow the 2011 Adult Swim College Carnival use the 100 block of East Eighth Street on April 14. This is the second year for the event, which will feature a band, carnival games and other entertainment. But this year the event is expanding into the intersection of Eighth and New Hampshire, meaning New Hampshire will be closed to through traffic during the event. The street is expected to be closed from about 9 a.m.


clear. We needed a mandate.” Voters approved both transit sales taxes with 70 percent and 68 percent of the vote. The sales taxes won in every precinct in the city.

Money matters Maybe Dever’s mix of philosophies comes from a youth that clearly had two story lines. As he shared during his last campaign, Dever, 48, led a fairly normal existence in a Chicago suburb, but then received a shock at age 16 when his father died. Dever helped the family make ends meet by working as a golf caddy at a country club. The job also created a path to college. He attended Kansas University through a scholarship program for caddies, choosing KU simply because it was the one university that still had a spot available in the program. Dever went on to get degrees in environmental studies and geography and now is an owner of Lawrence-based GuideWire Consulting, a firm that provides a variety of environmental site assessments for property owners or those looking to buy property. Today, Dever said he still has a very conservative view when it comes to money matters. He said budget issues — particularly what he and fellow commissioners found when they took office in April 2007 — stand out as the big topic of his first term.

to 1 a.m. on April 15 to allow for set up and take down. The event, which won’t charge admission, will be from about 5 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. The carnival is part of promotion campaign for the Adult Swim television programming that runs on the Cartoon Network. Last year about 4,400 people attended the event. Commissioner approved the event on a 4-1 vote. Mayor Mike Amyx was opposed. He said he was concerned about closing the intersection.

Commission concerned about grant cuts Commissioners agreed to send a letter to the state’s Congressional delegation

“The f irst thing that jumped out to me was that previous commissions had cut the mill levy and they were def icit spending,” Dever said. “That’s a recipe for economic disaster.” Dever and his fellow commissioners in 2007 agreed to take the unusual step of making mid-year budget cuts, including several that immediately reduced funding to several social service agencies. “We decided to do the hard cuts right away, and I think that has helped us in the long run,” Dever said. “But raising the mill levy wasn’t an option. That is what has been different. I’m proud that we haven’t put it back on the homeowners.”

Issues Dever’s last campaign — he was the top vote winner in April 2007 — was dominated by talk of increasing the number of jobs in the community. Dever concedes the job numbers still aren’t where he would like them to be. “We were handed the keys to a storeroom that was fairly barren of available land and opportunities for new businesses to come here,” Dever said. “We didn’t have very many options.” So, Dever said, the commission decided to invest what money it could into preparing Lawrence to prosper when the economy improves. He points to three major projects that he thinks have been a success on that front: ● Construction of a biosciences incubator on KU’s West Campus that was done

expressing concern about possible cuts to the Community Development Block Grant Program and other similar programs. As federal legislators wrestle with the federal budget, the House of Representatives has approved a bill to cut 60 percent of the CDBG program’s budget, and 20 percent from the Section 8 housing program. The city receives about $825,000 in CDBG funding each year. The city uses the money in a variety of ways, including to make infrastructure improvements to lowincome neighborhoods, housing projects, sidewalk construction and to fund various neighborhood associations and social service agencies.

as part of a partnership with KU, the county and a multimillion dollar investment from the Kansas Bioscience Authority. ● The purchase of an existing laboratory building at Bob Billings Parkway and Wakarusa Drive that the city and county will use to house companies that eventually outg row the incubator space. ● Completion of a deal to take over ownership of the 467-acre former Farmland Industries site that will be converted into an industrial/business park as the city cleans up its environmental problems. Dever also said the community has improved its image to outside companies, which he said are now starting to consider the city for projects in greater numbers. He said the community has lowered its contention level just enough to make new businesses feel more welcome. “I’ve told people that I’m proud the community is willing to f ight for what it believes in, but we need to temper that desire to keep Lawrence special with some good news that comes out of City Hall every once in awhile,” Dever said. “I think we have done a better job with that. It is important. If we can get a company to consider us, we have a great shot — because once you’re here, the quality of the community really does speak for itself.”

BRIEFLY City Hall officials to discuss annexation A meeting to discuss the possible annexation of the Miller Acres and Well Acres neighborhoods has been set for this evening. Lawrence City Hall officials will be on hand to answer questions and get feedback from residents of the two subdivisions, located just north of the Michigan Street and Riverridge Road area. The meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m. today in the Heritage Room of the Carnegie Building at Ninth and Vermont streets. City staff members have said they want to present a plan to commissioners to annex the area because it is virtually surrounded by the city limits. City commissioners authorized staff members to have a meeting with neighbors but have not taken steps to start the annexation process.

Lawrence man charged with distributing meth Federal prosecutors have charged a 43-year-old Lawrence man with two counts of distributing methamphetamine after officers investigated him for several months. After a hearing Tuesday, Magistrate Judge James P. O’Hara Tuesday ordered

Joseph Henry Hibbs Jr. to be held in federal custody while his case was pending. According to an affidavit filed in the case, Douglas County Sheriff’s Detective Chris Thomas said investigators believed Hibbs had supplied methamphetamine for various deals made around Lawrence since October, including ones at a house near Woody Park in the 200 block of Maine Street. Thomas said Hibbs was arrested Feb. 22 in Kansas City, Kan., and believed to be in possession of methamphetamine at the time. Thomas wrote in the affidavit that Hibbs owned a camper and was letting a parole absconder named Joshua Sexton, 26, of Leavenworth, live in it in North Lawrence. Law enforcement officers arrested Sexton in the 500 block of Locust Street last October for an alleged parole violation, and a Leavenworth County bomb squad had to respond to disarm a homemade explosive device inside. A confidential informant told officers that he had bought methamphetamine from Sexton and that Hibbs was his supplier, according to Thomas’ affidavit.

Sustained effort Short-term grants don’t support the kind of long-term strategy needed to combat underage drinking in Lawrence.


ost grants for special initiatives to address a public need are a blessing. They provide the money to do research, pay for resources above and beyond a department’s budget and often help to address a problem. One major downside to grants, however, is that once the money is gone, what do you do next? If the money is used to fix a problem, the problem might still be there after the grant’s funding dries up. That’s where the Lawrence Police Department now stands after using Kansas Department of Transportation grants to combat underage drinking in the city. The grants were used most recently for a unique opportunity to educate youths that police are watching them. The department targeted Lawrence area youths who might be looking for a fake ID. More than 5,200 people between the ages of 16 and 20 clicked on a Facebook ad that the department placed featuring a fake ID of the character McLovin’ from the movie “Superbad.” But instead of getting a chance to obtain a fake ID that could be used to try to buy alcohol, people who clicked on the ad were directed to the New Tradition Coalition of Lawrence website. The group fights alcohol abuse and underage drinking. Coalition members said interest in the Facebook ad clearly illustrates the demand for fake IDs and the prevalence of underage drinking in Lawrence. The Facebook campaign was preceded by another KDOT-supported effort, dubbed Fake ID 101. Last spring, uniformed officers entered bars to check IDs. In a second phase of Fake ID 101, officers made traffic stops and were out on foot, patrolling Kansas University and the Oread neighborhood on football game days. They also targeted parties in houses or at apartments. As a result, about 105 citations were issued to minors in possession of alcohol and 60 citations for fake IDs. KDOT has agreed to fund another Fake ID 101 grant in Lawrence next fall. What the department and the coalition have determined by using the KDOT grants is there is a widespread underage drinking problem in Lawrence. And police have put Lawrence youths and KU students on alert that they are watching. The projects have value for our community. But what is needed is a sustained program because the problem is not going away. KDOT should be thanked for the resources. But the Lawrence Police Department, and the entire community, including KU, need to support a long-term and sustained initiative to fight the problem of underage drinking.



From the Lawrence Daily JournalWorld for March 2, 1911: “C. A. Briggs, a professional parachute leaper, is in Lawrence and wants YEARS to make an ascension during the aviaAGO tion meet this week. Briggs says he has IN 1911 one of the largest balloons in the country and that he will make an ascension to an altitude of 5,000 feet if given proper inducements. He is also perfectly willing to make a parachute leap from a moving aeroplane.” — Compiled by Sarah St. John

Political theater precedes budget reality When it comes to curbing the massive federal deficit, there’s no problem knowing what needs to be done. It’s figuring out how — and when — to do it. Everyone knowledgeable understands it requires cutting future costs of so-called “entitlements” like Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security, which many Democrats viscerally oppose doing. It means providing additional revenue and curbing military spending, which Republicans viscerally oppose doing. This is the real bottom line behind the congressional battle over cutting the current budget or even some of the talk about next year’s spending plan. Though billions are involved, and lawmakers ultimately must provide federal funding, the fight is largely political and enables everyone from President Barack Obama to the greenest House freshman to show voters how serious he or she is about cutting spending. While it may have significant political fallout, it won’t do much to curb the long-term deficit because they’re fighting over 15 percent of the budget, which funds discretionary domestic programs. Despite the fiery rhetoric, the amount involved is relatively small in a budget that has reached $3.7 trillion, with a $1.6 trillion deficit. Even if all House

Though billions are “involved, and lawmakers

ultimately must provide federal funding, the fight is largely political and enables everyone from President Barack Obama to the greenest House freshman to show voters how serious he or she is about cutting spending.”

cuts were adopted, and top Republicans concede they won’t be, the total is $61 billion or, on an annual basis, $100 billion. Though some amendments cut well-meaning but non-essential programs, like $1.5 million for “greening” the Capitol, others would do real damage by trimming funds for college loans, monitoring clean air and enhancing border enforcement. The impasse may lead to

another of those theatrical government shutdowns like 1990, preceding enactment of a deficit reduction package under the first President Bush, or the 1995 one forced by another crop of rambunctious House GOP freshmen. But assuming far-ranging policy riders like the six barring funds to implement Obama’s health care program are ultimately dropped, this is really a prelude to the real battle over reining in the long-term deficit. And it’s not yet clear when that will unfold. After a majority of Obama’s bipartisan deficit control commission in December backed its sweeping plan, many of us hoped the president would seize the political high ground by including it in his 2011 agenda. He didn’t, drawing fire from pundits and bipartisan critics accusing him of forfeiting leadership. But he made clear he believes anything he proposed would immediately become a target for Democrats opposed to curbing most entitlement programs and Republicans opposed to most anything he might favor. His preferred course: Let partisan battles play out and help create a climate for bipartisan action. In recent weeks, quiet bipartisan talks have begun in the Senate, perhaps the likeliest place for progress since it is inherently less polarized. Besides, a majori-

ty of the debt panel’s Democratic and Republican senators endorsed its proposals. One idea is to use the panel’s plan to force necessary cuts. Predictably, these efforts immediately encountered problems. Top Senate Democrats are trying to bar any Social Security reductions. And Obama’s failure to propose any long-term plan is spurring House Republicans to propose one in their 2012 budget that may well go beyond anything that can be enacted. Actually, Social Security may be the easiest part. Top leaders of both parties have already suggested raising the retirement age gradually to 70 and limiting future benefits for wealthier recipients. It will be harder to curb Medicare, Medicaid and defense spending and to increase revenues, perhaps through a tax simplification plan that limits deductions for wealthier taxpayers. Polls show the public opposes Social Security and Medicare cuts. Two key senators, Tom Coburn, R-Okla., and Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., agreed on “Fox News Sunday” that “everything” has to be part of the package. But a lot of political sound and fury, and possibly another election, will have to come first. — Carl P. Leubsdorf is the former Washington bureau chief of the Dallas Morning News.


Fast enough

Obama action sidesteps court President Obama has said his view of same-sex “marriage” is “evolving.” Apparently he thinks that the law should be based on a kind of Darwinian jurisprudence which allows it to “evolve” and become whatever the ruling politicians at a given moment say it is (or isn’t). How else to explain the decision by the president and his attorney general, Eric Holder, not to defend the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), signed into law by President Bill Clinton in 1996? The Senate vote was 85-14; the vote in the House was 342-67, an indication of overwhelming public support to keep marriage for opposite-sex couples. Let’s leave aside for the moment any moral, religious, historical or cultural reasons for maintaining the legal status quo on marriage, which has precedent dating to biblical times. The president and his attorney general have concluded that because DOMA is being challenged before the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals, which they say “has no established or binding standard for how laws concerning sexual orientation should be treated” — they will circumvent or overrule judicial authority and decide the matter for themselves. This “we are the law” thinking is what we oppose in Middle East dictators. Holder contends that because of past “discrimination” against gays, the 2nd Circuit Court will, or should, apply a more “rigorous standard” to such cases and when they do, DOMA will be found unconstitutional. Doesn’t this sound strangely like Richard Nixon’s approach to the law? It was Nixon who told David Frost in 1977, “When the president does it, that means that it is not illegal.” So when the pres-

Cal Thomas

the reaction “fromImagine the Left had George

W. Bush announced his administration would no longer defend Roe v. Wade because he thought it unconstitutional and it would eventually be overturned by the Supreme Court.” ident and his attorney general refuse to defend a law they have taken an oath to uphold, isn’t that the other side of the same coin? Imagine the reaction from the Left had George W. Bush announced his administration would no longer defend Roe v. Wade because he thought it unconstitutional and it would eventually be overturned by the Supreme Court. Former Speaker Newt Gingrich in an interview with Newsmax.TV on Friday said he thought the Obama-Holder decision not to defend DOMA in the courts might be an impeachable offense and that the House may “zero out (defund) the office of attorney general and take other steps as necessary until the president agrees to do his job.” He later softened his stance on the issue of impeachment, saying instead in a

statement to reporters that, though impeachment is clearly not an appropriate action, “Congress has every responsibility to demand President Obama live up to his constitutional obligations.” The president and attorney general believe there are no “reasonable” arguments in favor of retaining DOMA. Constitutional attorney John Whitehead disagrees. Whitehead tells me he thinks the Obama-Holder tactic is “an attempt to provide cover for the president’s decision to achieve a repeal of DOMA through the courts as opposed to an evenhanded evaluation of the strengths of the legal arguments.” Whitehead notes that Holder has acknowledged a binding circuit court precedent which holds that “classifications based on sexual orientation are subject to ‘rational basis’ scrutiny.” Under such scrutiny, Whitehead says, “a legislative classification based on sexual orientation would be upheld if there is any conceivable basis to support the distinction; a court is not to judge the wisdom, fairness, or logic of the legislative choice.” Whitehead adds, “Because rational basis scrutiny is extremely deferential to the decision of the legislature, the determination that it applies to a particular classification basis is usually outcome determinative; where rational basis scrutiny applies, that equal protection challenge is almost always denied.” That is why President Obama and Attorney General Holder are wrong to pre-judge the outcome of this case in the courts, not to mention their rejection of congressional authority. Isn’t this ultimately about the separation of powers? — Cal Thomas is a columnist for Tribune Media Services.

To the editor: I was dumbfounded to learn of the bill and its passage in the Kansas House, promoted by state Rep. Marvin Kleeb, to raise the speed limit on various multilane roads in Kansas from 70 to 75 mph. Some drivers are already traveling at speeds of 75 to 85 as it is. What can we expect if the limit is increased? This idea has been around for several years. An increased speed limit will entice more drivers to go through Kansas on their way to western vacation spots. They then could drive faster and have more time to spend their tourist dollars in Colorado while maybe buying a few more sandwiches or renting a few more motel rooms as they speed through Kansas. What a major contribution to the economy this would be! Information has also been available for many years that increased speed of an automobile leads to decreased fuel efficiency. Mr. Kleeb claims that the savings is only 1 or 3 percent at lower speeds. It appears to me that even this percentage would be prudent to pursue when dealing with a dwindling and increasingly costly resource. Perhaps the Legislature could devote time to more meaningful issues. Am I viewing the real world or a play by Samuel Beckett? Jack Ozegovic, Lawrence

World police? To the editor: Libya intervention, just a thought. When will the Russians or the Chinese step in and do some policing? Why does it seem like it is always the U.S. or the Brits who have to be the world’s policemen? Maybe we should just get our folk out and then take the rest of the world’s attitude, sit around and let the locals slaughter each other? Jeremy Taylor, Lawrence

Olathe racing school under investigation OLATHE — A suburban Kansas City racing school and its founder are accused of deceptive and unconscionable acts related to the sale of racing packages. The Johnson County district attorney’s office filed an action last week under the Kansas Consumer Protection Act against The Racing Experience Inc. and its founder, Kelly Bussey of Shawnee. The Kansas City Star reported that the district attorney is alleging numerous customers have been unable to use racing packages that allow them to attend a racing school and drive a racecar on a speedway track. Customers also have been unable to get refunds. The DA’s office is seeking an order requiring the company and Bussey to pay full restitution to consumers and $10,000 in civil fines and penalties for each violation of the act.

Brady’s name resonates The only visible signs of his playing days are the letters of his name on the record board and an 8x11 photo plaque celebrating his all-state season of 2004-05 that hangs outside the gym. In it, former Free State High standout Brady Morningstar, now an unlikely star at Kansas University, skies above three Wichita East defenders while scooping a right-handed shot toward the rim. It’s hardly a picture that leads one to believe the young man someday would be starting for the No. 2 team in college basketball, a squad that, without him, likely wouldn’t be in that position. Even during his days at Free State, when he was known as a scorer, Morningstar still did the little things better than everybody else. Two of his school records are for steals — most in a season (52 in 2004-05) and most in a career (125 from 200205) — and the other is for points in a season (423 in 2004-05). Although Morningstar was the hot name in town during his prep days, KU stars Kirk Hinrich, Nick Collison and others were the cream of the crop in his eyes. Today, Brady’s the cream and a whole different crop of young players look up to him. FSHS junior Brett Frantz was nine or 10 years old the first time he saw Morningstar play. “I remember one game, I was hanging out with Tyler Self and we went to go talk to his dad (Bill) and I just remember Bill saying, ‘Man, that guy’s good, someone needs to start recruiting him,’” Frantz said. “After hearing Bill say that, I started to pay more attention to him to see how good he actually was.” Morningstar said the responsibility of having the current Firebirds and other young players look up to him is one he takes seriously. “When you’re growing up in Lawrence and you see KU players and you see Kansas play, you want to follow in their footsteps and you want to be them,” Morningstar said. “But I think the main thing is, once you get there and you’re on top, you gotta not let it get to your head.” Morningstar’s not the first player from Lawrence to play for the Jayhawks. Chris Piper did it in the late ’80s, Stephen Vinson did it from 2003-06 and Danny Manning lived in Lawrence for a year before playing for the Jayhawks. Times were different then. That Morningstar’s been able to do it — 59 starts in 107 career games heading into tonight’s Senior Night — with such smoothness makes it all the more impressive. “I think I understand it better than if I was from the east coast or west coast because I grew up seeing it,” Morningstar said. “I truly understand how I felt when I was younger, and now that these young players look up to me, it’s pretty cool.” The feeling’s mutual. “He’s definitely known around here,” FSHS senior Alec Heline said. “But it’s not like he’s a hero or something. I still look up to him. He’s a fun player to watch and it’s kind of crazy that he went here.”

Brady Morningstar, who grew up in Lawrence, has listened attentively to countless Kansas University Senior Night speeches throughout the years. His favorite of all-time? It’s one from the not-so-distant past. “It’s Sherron’s, probably because I could relate to it,” Morningstar, KU’s 6-foot-4 senior guard out of Free State High, said of last year’s tearful testimonial of Sherron Collins, the Chicago point guard

Oregon State defensive tackle Stephen Paea pulled off such an amazing feat Sunday at the NFL combine, by Tuesday he was telling a condensed, somewhat Hollywood version of his life story on Jim Rome’s nationally syndicated radio show. Rome and many others throughout the sports world expressed amazement at Paea’s ability to bench-press 225 pounds 49 times, shattering the combine record by four reps. Out in Los Paea Angeles, Paea’s cousin, former Kansas University and NFL defensive tackle Chris Maumalanga (1990-93 at KU), wasn’t stunned. In Lawrence, Maumalanga’s friend, Fred Roll, former KU strength coach who now puts Lawrence High football players through summer conditioning, didn’t express shock. Neither did LHS football coach Dirk Wedd. “So explosive,” Wedd said of Paea. Added Roll: “Not surprised at all.” How would they know? Roll saw Paea play rugby before he ever came to the United States and immediately pictured him in a helmet and shoulder pads. Roll had lost his job as the KU strength and conditioning coach and visited his friend Maumalanga during the retired player’s five-year stay in Tonga. “Two American football freaks like Fred and me with no American football, we gravitated to the next-best thing: rugby,” said Maumalanga, who got his uncle to get Roll a job training with a national Tongan rugby team. Maumalanga and Roll visited Maumalanga’s cousin Ramona and it was there that they saw Paea, Ramona’s brother, playing rugby. “This kid could fly,” Roll remembered. “We needed to get him to America to play football.” Maumalanga told his relatives about what a great experience he had in Kansas and described it as, “heaven on earth.” Paea’s mother was working in the San Francisco Bay Area and his father was living and working in Samoa. Maumalanga made arrangements for a visa, and Paea, his twin brother Will, their younger brother Pora, flew to San Francisco and in the summer before the 2004 football season, the three brothers and an older brother who would rent an apartment in Lawrence, were dropped Please see PAEA, page 3B


Kansas women’s hoops stomped by Iowa State OFF NIGHT Kansas: Assists: 9 Turnovers: 19 FGs: 16-54 (29.6 percent) Threes: 2-10 FTs: 2-6

AMES, IOWA (AP) — Senior guard Kelsey Bolte scored a game-high 17 points in her final home game and No. 23 Iowa State earned a 72-36 drubbing over Kansas on Tuesday. Chelsea Poppens added 13 points and seven rebounds as the Cyclones (21-8, 9-6 in Big 12) won their fourth straight. Monica Engelman scored 13

points to lead Kansas (19-10, 6-9). Leading scorer Carolyn Davis was held to six points.

Iowa State ended KU’s threegame winning streak. Krysten Boogaard and Tania Jackson added five points a piece for Kansas. Boogaard led KU with six rebounds. The Jayhawks finished with a .296 shooting clip, which was their first sub-.400 performance since shooting 39.6 percent at Missouri on Jan. 26.

Royals edge wild Padres, 4-3 SURPRISE, ARIZ. (AP) — Mat Latos lost the strike zone, then was at a loss for words. A 14-game winner last year with San Diego, Latos walked four in the first inning and Padres pitchers combined for 10 walks in a 4-3 loss Tuesday to the Kansas City Royals. Latos threw only 15 of 34 pitch-

es for strikes and got only four outs in his spring training debut. He walked four of his first five batters but didn’t allow a run because Mike Aviles was caught stealing for the second out of the inning. Latos retired Mitch Maier on a popup to strand the bases loaded. “I’m trying to think the best possible word right now,” Latos said

after his outing. “There are no words that I can say how I feel about this outing, seriously. I felt fine as bad as I looked out there. I was missing by a lot. I threw it everywhere, but in the strike zone.” Clint Robinson, who won the 2010 Texas League triple crown with a .335 average, 29 homers and

NATIONAL BRIEFS NFL Judge sides with union MINNEAPOLIS — With a potential NFL lockout looming, a federal judge gave a key ruling in favor of the players that could strip what the union has been calling unfair leverage for the owners in labor negotiations. U.S. District Judge David Doty backed the NFL Players Association on Tuesday in a dispute with the league over $4 billion in TV revenue, money that players argue owners collected for a war chest to fund a lockout. The league’s agreement with players expires at midnight Eastern time Thursday night.

NBA Heat part with Arroyo MIAMI — LeBron James spoke with Mike Bibby after a game last week, and the NBA’s two-time reigning MVP is keeping the exact details of that chat private. This much is known: It was a recruiting pitch. “I gave him the eye,” James said. “And I guess the eye worked.” By tonight, James and the Heat will know for certain. The Heat cleared a roster spot Tuesday by parting ways with Carlos Arroyo, and although the team made no formal pronouncements because of NBA rules, several players — James, Dwyane Wade and Mario Chalmers among them — said they expect to have Bibby aboard soon.

Seabury wallops White City By Ben Ward Journal-World Sports Writer

With his team easily handling its business on the floor, Seabury Academy boys basketball coach Ashley Battles had time to notice a few Waverly coaches taking notes in the cheering section. Following Tuesday’s 55-38 thrashing of White City at home, the Seahawks were more than ready to return the attention — as they’ll face Waverly in a 1A sub-state semifinal in Lebo on Friday night. “(The goal) is the state championship from here on out,” said senior Johnny McDermott, who tallied five points and a team-high five assists. The Seahawks (12-6) controlled from the opening play, which was a dandy. After Khadre Lane secured

sprinted around a perfect back-screen — then floated the ball gently to a soaring Lane, who slammed it home for a loud two points. “We came out in the first half with purpose,” Battles said. Josh McDermott led the way with 20 points, nearly all coming off a strong low-post game, and also pulled down six rebounds and picked off four passes. Senior Reed Grabill chipped in 14 points and Lane tallied eight points and six steals for Seabury, which cruised to a 36-18 halftime lead. The Seahawks, seemingly content to run out the clock, relented a bit in the second half, but remained in command. At the start of the fourth quarter, with Battles already relying heavily upon his

bench, the Huskies had as many turnovers (22) as they did points — many of them steals by the Seahawks. Battles, undaunted by the Waverly (16-3) scouting presence, was nothing but confident in his team heading into Friday’s matchup. “We’ve got to be who we are,” Battles said. “We don’t need to be worried about anybody but us.” WHITE CITY (38) Sam Morgan 3-8 0-0 7, Brandon Paige 1-2 0-0 2, Jaren Nittler 0-4 0-0 0, Trent Blythe 4-6 5-7 13, Tanner Boeh 7-12 0-0 14, Terrence Egger 1-2 0-0 2, Ty Larson 0-1 0-0 0, Rowe Hinkle 0-1 0-0 0.

It’s actually a fact. It’s very easy to turn a big rugby player into an American football player.”


off in town by their parents. Scott Penny, who starred in football for LHS and as a hammer thrower at Oregon, is attending KU Medical School now. He was watching ESPN on Monday when he learned of his former teammate’s feat. “I remember lifting with him during our summer weights program,” Penny said. “I think I got a better workout taking the weights off and putting them on for him than I did from my workout. He had never lifted before and he did five sets of squats with almost 500 pounds on.” Penny also remembered having the twins and their younger brother to his house. “They had their Tongan tribal tattoos and we had them draw them on us,” he said. “They did a pretty good job with Sharpies.” Paea had the strength to take to weight-lifting immediately. Learning to play a sport not played in Tonga presented a greater challenge. “He had never played football and it was a long, hard process, getting him to understand the game,” Wedd said. “By the end of the season, he was a pretty good player. He played tight end and defensive tackle.” Remembered Roll: “He was so raw, but you couldn’t block him. He would get into the backfield every time and then he’d be like, ‘OK, I’m back here, now what am I supposed to do?’ He’d run by ball carriers.” Wedd expected a dominant senior season out of Paea, but the family had different plans. Their mother came to Lawrence and told her sons they would spend the next school year in Provo, Utah, where Paea attended Timpview High. After that, he red-

STEPHEN PAEA, PICTURED IN THE TOP ROW WEARING NO. 75 AND CIRCLED, APPEARED in the Lawrence High 2004 team football photo. His fraternal twin brother, Will, is pictured in the second row, wearing No. 33. shirted one season and played two at Snow College, where he received an associate’s degree in December of 2007 and then signed with Oregon State. As a senior, he earned Pac-10 Defensive Player of the Year honors. Roll, who said he listens daily to Rome’s radio show, which airs locally on 610 Sports from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., grew excited when he heard Rome promote that Paea would make his Jungle debut as a guest. After running errands with his wife, Roll got back into his car, drove home and pulled into his driveway, when Rome’s 11-minute, 48second interview of Paea started. Roll stayed seated in his driveway throughout the interview. Swelling with pride, Roll quickly deflated and was disappointed in some of the things he heard. During the interview, Paea said he arrived in the United States at 16 and couldn’t speak any English. “When he came here in the summer of 2004 his English was just as good as it is now,” Roll said. “My wife’s from Tonga. They don’t let you graduate from high school in Tonga unless you can speak English.”

Paea also said he never lifted weights until his senior year in high school, missing the mark there by a year-anda-half. He also said he never played football until he was a senior, when in truth he played for Lawrence High as a junior. Wedd chuckled when told Paea said he didn’t know any English upon his arrival in the United States. Then Wedd pointed to the record board in the Lawrence High weight room, which showed that in the spring of 2005, Paea set a record that still stands with a bench press of 330 pounds. Roll called Maumalanga to express disappointment that it seemed as if Paea had forgotten what both men had done for him. (Tuesday night efforts to reach Paea through the Oregon State sports information office and through Maumalanga were unsuccessful.) “I just had a conversation with Stephen tonight,” Maumalanga said. “If you talk to Stephen, you’ll understand he’s a pretty authentic guy. At the same time, you can recognize when he’s been coached. I think sometimes in an interview, especially when someone isn’t that comfortable in front of a camera or a micro-


phone, he can just tell a condensed version and then just tell it so many times. ...” It becomes too difficult to change it. Orlando “El Duque” Hernandez, it routinely was reported, defected from Cuba in a raft, until it was learned later that it was a much larger, more comfortable vessel. Regardless of the story, Maumalanga expressed pride at the decisions his cousin has made and the hard work he has endured to put himself in a position to get drafted in the early rounds. “They didn’t want to leave Lawrence, but they had to because of family finances,” Maumalanga said of the Paea brothers. “The driving force behind what Fred and I did for the family was that we’re passionate about football and love to help people.” Maumalanga said he also had visions of KU getting a pipeline of football players from Tonga. “We wanted to find out and learn if it was possible for a rugby kid to excel at American football,” Maumalanga said. “The end result is Stephen Paea proved that theory. Fred Roll and I proved it’s no longer a theory. It’s actually a fact. It’s very easy to turn a big rugby player into an American football player.” On the Jim Rome Show, Paea talked about coming to the States to pursue the American dream. What he didn’t say was that the pursuit of that dream started with him running on Daisy Hill on KU’s campus and in the weight rooms at LHS during summer conditioning drills.


Free State to face Underdog LHS to Ravens...again take on O-South By Ben Ward Journal-World Sports Writer

OLATHE — Chuck Law was simply being candid when he remarked that Olathe Northwest might have overlooked his Free State High boys basketball team earlier this season. Regardless, the Firebirds went into Northwest’s gym and blasted the Ravens, 57-43 on Feb. 11, to earn what Law dubbed a “signature victory” by topping one of the Sunflower League’s best teams. “It’s going to be a much different game this time around,” Law said of tonight’s rematch, a first round sub-state game at 7 p.m. at O-Northwest. The Firebirds (12-8) played perhaps their best all-around game last time against the Ravens, but are now without injured senior and leading scorer Eric Watson, who drove to the basket at will and poured in 20 points in the first matchup.

But players such as Alec Heline, Brett Frantz, Georgi Funtarov and Evan Manning have each done their part to make up for Watson’s absence on offense. Law said he fully expects the Ravens (16-4) to be boosted by the return of their coach, Mike Grove, who missed the first matchup, and is well aware of the challenges posed by 6-foot-10 center Willie Cauley and slashing guard Shavon Shields, among the other talented ONW players. “I don’t think we’re going to catch them off guard,” Law said. FSHS enters sub-state play as the No. 6 seed in a tough bracket, and even if it can knock off No. 3 seed Northwest again, a difficult road to the state tournament remains. For now, though, the mentality over at the Firebirds’ practice is simple. “Right now it’s just survive and advance,” Manning said.

O L A T H E — After Olathe South pummeled Lawrence High by 22 points on Jan. 15, LHS boys basketball coach Mike Lewis called the Falcons a well-oiled machine. Lewis likened his team to a 1987 squeaky Ford Escort. Nothing about that game necessarily bodes well for the Lions’ sub-state game against the Falcons on the road at 7 tonight. But during practice on Tuesday, Lewis emphasized that his team had moved past the loss in advance of tonight’s matchup. After all, it’s a new season. “Our guys are a confident group when it comes to seeing the big picture,” Lewis said. The Falcons’ 1-2-2 zone press gave the Lions fits in the first matchup. LHS (6-14) often turned the ball on looping passes in the backcourt, giving O-South (17-3) ample

opportunity to convert transition layups. This time around, the Lions have prepared better for the press, as well as several other defensive looks. They’ve also tried to prepare for O-South senior Kameron Lindsay, who scored 22 points on a perfect night from the field in January. “We just have to compete better against him, and not let him just treat us like his little brother in the backyard and use and abuse us,” Lewis said. “We have to step up and compete against the kid.” Lewis figures that all the pressure will rest on Olathe South, the No. 1 seed in the Lions’ eight-team sub-state. LHS is the No. 8 seed. “We’re supposed to go there and get beat,” Lewis said. “I hope that taking the pressure off our guys allows for us to play a little looser.”

Jayhawks sweep Southern Utah J-W Staff Reports

Southern Utah pitcher Chase Rezac sure left his mark on Kansas University’s baseball team on Tuesday. Rezac hit seven Jayhawk batters, including Brandon Macias three times, in KU’s sweep of the Thunderbirds (2-1 victory, 5-1 victory) at Hoglund Ballpark. Macias tied the school record in his three times getting plunked. KU junior first baseman Zac Elgie led the offense, going 2-for-4 with an RBI double. Sophomore pitcher Thomas Taylor lasted 5 2⁄ 3 innings, allowing seven hits, walking one and striking out three. The Jayhawks (4-3), winners of three straight, recorded their first doubleheader sweep since April 2009. Southern Utah dropped to 44. Kansas put up eight hits in the nightcap: Elgie, James

Stanfield and Jordan Brown had two a piece. Elgie’s third double of the season broke a scoreless tie in the bottom of the third and gave Kansas a 10 advantage. After Southern Utah tied the game in the top of the fourth inning, KU answered with two runs in the bottom of the frame on a squeeze bunt and throwing error. KU’s bullpen allowed just one hit over the f inal 3 1⁄ 3 innings. During the Jayhawks’ four-game homestand, which began on Feb. 22, KU’s pitching staff is sporting a 1.46 earned-run average. Starting pitchers have allowed one or no runs in all four starts. In the first game, senior Wally Marciel tossed seven shutout innings, allowing three hits, five walks and five strikeouts in the longest outing of his career. Kansas will take on UC Riverside at 5 p.m. on Thursday in the Surprise Classic in Surprise, Ariz.

‘Turg’ here tonight: Fourthyear Texas A&M coach Mark Turgeon is 0-5 versus his alma mater, Kansas. His Aggies fell to KU, 73-53, on Jan. 19, 2009,

in his only coaching appearance in Allen Fieldhouse. Turgeon believes this year’s challenge may be the toughest, yet. “They are scoring so well. They have so many guys who can score,” Turgeon said of the Jayhawks. “The Morris twins are off the charts now the way they are playing. “You’ve got to do it on both ends. You have to try to slow them down. You have to have a great defensive game plan and hope it works. There really isn’t a game plan for them. They can do so many things offensively. You’ve got to take care of the ball and get good shots.” Turgeon, who played at KU from 1984-87, knows the fieldhouse will be full of electricity tonight. “It will be exciting in there for Senior Night, loud,” Turgeon said. “They are still playing for the conference championship now. We’ve got to be good on both ends and be efficient offensively, which we haven’t been. You can’t go in and try to play a 100-point game, that’s for sure.” Of the fieldhouse, Turgeon said: “It’s a special place. There’s tremendous confidence in the building among the coaches, players and fans. It’s an intimidating place for opposing teams to play.”

average 69.4 points per game and allow 60.5, lead the league in defensive rebounds at 29.5 boards per game and have a +7.3 rebound margin. Khris Middleton averages a team-leading 14.6 points per game. David Loubeau is next at 11.2 ppg. “They're well coached. Turg and his staff have done a great job. They don’t beat themselves. They don’t give up easy baskets,” Self said. “They’ve had a couple players really mature and become terrific players. I think (David) Loubeau may have a chance to be an all-league player, and (Khris) Middleton may have a chance to be an all-league player this year, and that’s just as a sophomore. Those two are terrific.” ●

“There’s going to be a lot of emotions and it’s going to be fun to look back on some of the experiences and games I’ve played here,” Reed said. “I’m sure if I see somebody else tearing up, I will. I’m an emotional guy deep down at the core.” Growing up in Burlington as a KU fan, he’s heard lots of Senior Night speeches. His favorite? “I don’t think I could pick one. I’ve loved hearing from everybody,” Reed said. “The first one I remember is Ryan Robertson. I thought that was a pretty cool one.” Chicagoan Little said “you never know,” when asked if he’d shed a tear. “Sherron (Collins) was saying last year he didn’t know what he was going to do and he did (cry a lot). He didn’t have a speech ready but when the time came he gave a great speech.” Of his last home game, Little said: “Every good thing comes to an end. It’s all good. I’m going to try to make the best of it and cherish my last home moment.” ●

Title on the line: A victory tonight would assure KU at least a tie for its seventh straight Big 12 title. It is believed a Big 12 trophy will be in the house to be given to the Jayhawks in case of a victory. It is not known whether a presentation would be made. KU has one game remaining in the regular season, Saturday at Missouri.

Mizzou loses on road again The Associated Press

Nebraska 69, No. 22 Missouri 58 L I N C O L N , N EB . — For Missouri, the best thing about Tuesday night’s game at Nebraska was that it was the Tigers’ last one on the road this season. Lance Jeter scored 16 points and Nebraska used a 17-2 second-half run to pull away for a victory that sent Missouri to its seventh loss in eight Big 12 road games. “I’m kind of disappointed the way we’ve played on the road, especially today, playing a Nebraska team,” guard Marcus Denmon said. “Starting today, no more road games. There’s nothing more for us to figure out. It’s either home or neutral.” The Tigers (22-8, 8-7) had a dent put in their hopes to finish in the top four in the conference and earn a bye in the first round of next week’s league tournament. For all their problems on the road, Missouri is 17-0 at home going into Saturday’s game against No. 2 Kansas. Missouri coach Mike Anderson said he wasn’t worried that his team’s second straight loss — they were beaten 80-70 at surging Kansas State last weekend — would damage their NCAA tournament hopes. “We’ve been playing pretty good basketball,” he said. “This is the trend in conference play. It’s been difficult for teams on the road. We had a tremendous opportunity

Brighten your plate with colorful, healthy foods Q:

Cooking Q&A

Can you tell me what this year’s theme is for National Nutrition Month?


Initiated in 1973 as a weeklong event, National Nutrition Week became a monthlong observance in 1980 in response to growing public interest in nutrition. Since then, March has been recognized as National Nutrition Month. This year, the American Dietetic Association encourages everyone to add color and nutrients to your meals through this year’s theme: “Eat Right with Color.” The recently released 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend an increased focus on a plantbased diet. This combined with including lean meats, fish and poultry, and low-fat milk and dairy products creates a rainbow of colors on the plate that serve as the foundation for a healthful eating plan. Karen Ansel, registered dietitian and ADA spokesperson, offers ways to brighten up your plate in every season with this quick color guide: Green produce indicates antioxidant potential and may help promote healthy vision and reduce cancer risks. Choose: avocados, apples, grapes, honeydew, kiwi, lime, artichokes, asparagus, broccoli, green beans, green peppers and leafy greens such as spinach. Orange and deep yellow fruits and vegetables contain nutrients that promote healthy vision and immunity, and reduce the risk of some cancers. Select: apricots, cantaloupe, grapefruit, mangos, papayas, peaches, pineapple, carrots, yellow peppers, yellow corn and sweet potatoes. Purple and blue options may have antioxidant and anti-aging benefits and may help with memory, urinary tract health and reduced cancer risks. Include: blackberries, blueberries, plums,


semi-sweet, stirring with a spatula as you go. While that’s going, whip the egg whites to stiff peaks. Here’s where it gets fancy. Temper the yolks by putting some of the chocolate into the yolks and mix it in. Add a bit of chocolate at a time until the yolks are about 50/50 and then mix that back in with the rest of the chocolate. At this point take the bowl off of the hot water and gently fold the whites into the chocolate mixture with a siliconetype spatula. Slow and gentle is key. You want to retain some of that texture from the egg whites. When it is all the same consistency, pour it into the pie pan and place the pie pan in a water bath so the water comes halfway up the sides. Megan’s note: I generally hate things that have to do with water baths and will avoid said recipes like the plague, but Adam has convinced me that I need not be afraid. The water bath is no big deal, nor is cooking chocolate on a double boiler, which I also usually avoid, mostly out of laziness. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. When it’s done, carefully remove it from the water bath and place a plate/serving dish upside down on top. It’s best if this is a flat surface for easy

raisins, eggplant, purple cabbage and purple-fleshed potatoes. Red indicates produce that may help maintain a healthy heart, vision, immunity and may reduce cancer risks. Enjoy: cherries, cranberries, pomegranate, red/pink grapefruit, red grapes, watermelon, beets, red onions, red peppers, red potatoes, rhubarb and tomatoes. White, tan and brown foods sometimes contain nutrients that may promote heart health and reduce cancer risks. Pick: bananas, brown pears, dates, white peaches, cauliflower, mushrooms, onions, parsnips, turnips, white-fleshed potatoes and white corn. Instead of grilled chicken and mashed potatoes, consider painting a more colorful plate, such as grilled chicken topped with salsa, mashed sweet potato, asparagus and spinach salad with orange slices. Here’s a couple of 2011 National Nutrition Month recipes from the American Dietetic Association website,, that you may want to try.

LOW-FAT OVENFRIED CHICKEN 1 cup plain low-fat yogurt 1 teaspoon paprika 1 teaspoon dried thyme 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper 1 clove garlic, minced 6 skinless chicken breast halves or 6 skinless chicken thighs (1 3/4 to 2 pounds) 1 cup seasoned bread crumbs 1 tablespoon margarine, melted

In a single motion, flip the pie pan and serving dish over so that when it’s cool you can remove the pie pan and reveal your masterpiece. However, be gentle; it’s really delicate.

I brought the leftover torte home from our party and set it on the kitchen table for Mr. Meat and Potatoes, and apparently flourless chocolate torte is close enough to brownies because every time I walked by it on Sunday there was a little less of it. I can’t say enough about how popular this thing was in our house. Let me just note that if you are gluten-free, this is FOR YOU. It’s rich but not too dense.

Comparing vanilla to French vanilla McClatchy Newspapers

Vanilla bean varieties are often named for where they’re grown, like Madagascar, Tahiti and Mexico. That’s not the case with French vanilla. The name refers not to a vanilla variety but to the classic French way of making ice cream using an egg-custard base. Craig Nielsen, CEO of Nielsen-Massey Vanillas, says the eggs give French vanilla a “richer, deeper note” than what’s found in plain vanilla. Regular vanilla ice cream made without eggs is called Philadelphia-style according to David Lebovitz, a Parisbased baker, chef and blogger. French vanilla, of course, is both a taste and a scent that transcends ice cream. Here’s how it’s defined by Mauricio Poulsen, director of creation and application flavors for International Flavors & Fragrances Inc.: “Today, in sensory terms, when we refer to French vanilla, it is when the vanilla flavor is caramelized, custardlike, cooked, egg yolklike, slightly floral.”

one would have the time and the extended friend base to start their own Community Dinners-style club, but that doesn’t mean a one-off dinner party, or even a once-a-month dinner with friends, is totally out of the question. Nancy Stark, a Kansas City-based chef, says that regular dinner parties can be a fantastic way to catch up with friends and keep from losing touch. And, they really can be easy and not Thanksgiving-level difficult. Here’s how. ● Plan, plan, plan. Stark, who teaches classes at The Merc, 901 S. Iowa, says that for success, it helps to be as prepared as possible, especially if you plan to cook the whole meal yourself. “Plan your menu as far in advance as you can,” she says. This means picking the recipes, planning the meal and creating a timeline as early as you can. Frisby recommends buying your ingredients as early as possible to avoid mad dashes to the store. ● Keep it simple. Stark says that while experienced home cooks will know how much time and effort they need for a certain meal, folks with less kitchen experience might be best suited to just do the main course. “If you’re not an experienced cook, the best approach to a dinner party is to pick one thing that you know how to do really well and that way you won’t sweat it,” she says. “Make one thing and then everything else can be easy stuff.” Stuff like doing a prepared salad and using a storebought baked good for dessert.

PAUL KALDAHL, foreground, leans back in his chair while chatting with Marissa Massoni, Nicole Schmidt, Hannah Nusz and Kate Wiens after a recent dinner gathering. “Most of the time beginner people try to do too much and too many things, and they often will pick something that they don’t really feel comfortable with,” Stark says. “And then they’re just in a dither and they don’t have any fun.” ● Use your kitchen wisely. As anyone who’s ever been in the kitchen for Thanksgiving knows, cooking a multi-course meal for many can be a delicate dance of timing and oven space. Frisby says one of his tricks is to use every square inch of your kitchen, and have something easy ready just in case you end up running behind.

“How I’ve started to think about it is I try to use all the parts of my oven. I try to bake something and use the range and then, like, last night I prepared some fruit, too. It’s nice to have something easy that you can’t be late with, like fruit,” Frisby says. “Baking things, there’s usually a really big window. You put it in the oven and then start doing something on the range. So, it’s best ... to do things that overlap well.” ● Think carefully about potlucks. If you’d like to make dinner with friends a weekly event, Frisby suggests shying away from the potluck model if you plan on having frequent dinners.

X Wednesday, March 2, 2011

“I think that the potlucks are less successful because you don’t always want to have to bring something,” he says, calling potlucks “overwhelming” in nature. “The format where one person cooks all the food infrequently — once a month, but otherwise you just get to go to the dinner and not worry about it — I think that’s going to be a lot better in terms of the long-term. Because with a potluck, it’s like I have to cook something every time — that’s overwhelming.” That said, Stark suggests that if your parties are more infrequent, a themed potluck might be the most adventurous way to go. (For more on themes, see box.) ● Make special concessions for the kids. Stark suggests that if kids are a must at your dinner party, to make sure they have their own menu and their own space. She likes the idea of hiring a sitter for the kids and giving them their own room for the party. “You can make a whole separate kids menu — you can get pizza or chicken fingers or whatever and send the kids off with an adult to do something and then all the other grown-ups can have a good time and do grown-up stuff,” she says. “If you’re going to have to hire a sitter anyway, why not just team up on that and all the people who have kids can chip in?” ● Don’t forget to ask about special dietary needs. If you have folks coming to the party that you don’t know that well, Stark says it’s always good to ask about diners’ special dietary needs. Also, she says it’s a good plan to have something that anyone can eat — she recommends fruit salad, as it’s a good bet for vegetarians and people with certain food allergies.

Blueberries add savory flavor to pork recipe Sometimes the wintertime blues can be just what the doctor ordered, especially if they’re the kind that grow on bushes. Besides being a delicious addition to your diet, blueberries have been linked to numerous health benefits. And the good news is that it doesn’t seem to matter whether you consume fresh, frozen or even dried blueberries. Of course, it’s easiest to eat blueberries out of hand or sprinkled over yogurt or cereal (just 40 calories per half-cup serving), but they also make an excellent addition to cooked dishes, and not just the usual desserts and bake goods. Blueberries can have a savory side, too. Consider adding fresh or dried blueberries to your stuffing next time you roast a chicken or turkey. They even make a surprising addition to a meatloaf or burger, especially when blended with savory ingredients such as onions and Dijon mustard. For this recipe, blueberries are cooked down with chopped onion, minced fresh ginger and white balsamic vinegar to make a sweet and tangy ketchup to accompany lean pork tenderloin. But the ketchup would go just as well on top of a burger. The technique for cooking the pork calls for dredging the medallions in seasoned

combine the blueberries, brown sugar, onion, vinegar, ginger and salt. Heat, stirring constantly, until the sugar has dissolved. Adjust the heat so the blueberry mixture is vigorously simmering and cook, stirring occasionally, until the blueberries have popped and the ketchup has thickened slightly, 20 to 25 minutes (the ketchup will thicken more as it cools). Remove from heat and set aside. To make the pork, in a shallow wide, shallow bowl or pie plate, whisk together flour, thyme, pepper and salt. Slice the pork tenderloin on the diagonal into 1-inch thick medallions. In a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high, heat the oil. Working in batches, dredge

the pork medallions through the flour mixture then place them in the hot skillet. Cook the pork until golden-brown and no longer pink at the center, 4 to 6 minutes per side. Serve the pork medallions immediately, topped with the blueberry-balsamic ketchup. Serves 4. Note: This recipe makes more blueberry-balsamic ketchup than you will need. Don’t worry, it’s delicious on just about any red meat, including in place of classic ketchup on burgers.

DINNER PARTY THEME IDEAS ● Play “Iron Chef”: Have the next host pick a special ingredient for the main course from a bunch of possibilities written on cards and stuffed into a wine glass or serving dish. ● “Iron Chef”style with a twist: Have a potluckstyle event where attendees pick their next dish from one drawing and a special condition or ingredient from another. For example, someone may draw “dessert” and then “vegan” or “side dish” and “French.” ● Go global: Place your finger on an old-fashioned globe and give it a spin. Wherever it lands inspires the next dinner. — Sarah Henning

HAPPY MEALS Create your own dinner group to save money, enjoy company

By Sarah Henning

Four nights a week, Nick Frisby gets a good, old-fashioned family dinner. Not bad for a doctoral student living the college life with three roommates. Frisby is a member of a dinner party club called Community Dinners. Every night, Monday through Thursday, someone from the group signs up to hold a dinner at home. With roughly 20 members, that’s a lot of mouths to feed, but it pays off with a square meal and solid company most days of the week. In fact, according to Frisby’s math, the dinner party group actually works to his financial advantage. He figures that he spends around $50 for each night he hosts. If he ends up hosting once a month, that means he basically gets 16 homemade dinners for $50 — plus invaluable time with good friends. He compares the system to almost something of a co-op, where the commodity is time and the owners are buddies. “It’s great moneywise. It’s sort of like a co-op on one level,” Frisby says. “It’s kind of like a time coop, though. One of us cooks an

Eventually, boyfriends and friends were invited, and the group turned into a full-blown weekly event, being hosted in various homes across Lawrence.

“Monday through Thursday is what we shoot for. But sometimes there are gaps,” he says, adding the group uses a Google calendar to keep things straight. “It’s all volunteer-based, we don’t have a fixed rotation or anything. But, since we have about 16 people, it roughly works out to cooking once a month.” Now, it’s obvious that not everyPlease see STUDENTS, page 7B

friend I have known since grade school recently told me via Facebook that one thing she remembers about me back in the day is that my mom always packed my lunch, and I always ate my dessert first. WHO, ME? I think she must be confusing me with someone else. It’s not possible. That I would prefer what my mom would pack to a school lunch? And eat the best part first? OK, that was probably me. Self-control, especially when it comes to food, has never been my strongest point. So in keeping with my earliest established habits, I’ll tell you

about a dessert from this weekend. This dessert came after a meal of epic proportions. Roasted ducks, duck fat fries, duck liver spread, roasted vegetables, and wine, wine, wine, wine, wine. Over the next few weeks I’ll be handing out the details of the cook-fest we had out at my friends’ house this Saturday, but for now, let’s just take a look at Adam’s chocolate torte. The simplest things are often the best. You know, like eating a piece of bread smeared with butter, or some pasta with just olive oil and parmesan. In this case, it’s a dessert with just chocolate, eggs and butter.


bitter if you want) 5 eggs

We topped ours with whipped cream, but Adam has been known to use fresh fruit or an artful piece of cooked sugar. You could use a chocolate glaze, a dusting of powdered sugar, whatever makes your toes curl. Adam prefers to whip cream by hand, even though our friends’ kitchen came equipped with a professional KitchenAid mixer.

Adam’s own words, because he can tell it far better than I. Begin by heating the oven to 350 degrees. Also, grease a round cake or pie pan (a good trick is to cut a piece of parchment to fit in the bottom of the pan and then just butter the side) and set it aside. Separate five eggs and add just a pinch of kosher salt in the yolks. Then get out a double boiler, or make one for yourself. Just use a saucepan and perch a glass bowl over it so that it just rests on top. Bring a few cups of water to a low boil beneath the glass and slowly melt the butter and 1 pound of chocolate: 1/2 bittersweet and 1/2 Please see TORTE, page 6B

No reason to feel guilty about concern of abuse Annie’s Mailbox

We have tried not answering the door, but she will then phone us or return and knock again. She can see our cars in the driveway, so she knows when we’re in. We have tried telling her that family time is important to us, but instead of getting the hint, she compliments us on our family dynamic. We don’t want to hurt her feelings, but I’m freaking out about what will happen when summer comes and we are loving when they are so both home all day with our inclined. Your mother, like kids. Please give me a polite many women in these situa- way to get her to back off tions, is in denial about the way her husband treated his family. Reasoning with her apparently has no effect. Being a good daughter does not mean subjecting your children to potential abuse, physical or emotional. You see your parents regularly, and they are welcome to visit whenever they wish. There is no reason to feel guilty.

March may come in like a lion, but on PBS it arrives like a pledge drive. And that means an onslaught of baby-boomer oldies acts and other musical specials. “American Masters” (7 p.m., PBS, check local listings) gets the red rubber ball rolling with “Troubadours: Carole King, James Taylor and the Rise of the SingerSongwriter.” A genial, soft-focus documentary about The Troubadour, the West Hollywood, Calif., club that launched so many careers, the film takes about two minutes to get a piece of musical history spectacularly wrong. A resident expert gravely intones that artists like James Taylor arrived at a time when rock music was in a fallow period, when the Beatles were breaking up and the Rolling Stones were “inactive.” Inactive? The years covered here — 1968 to 1972 — were the most active and fruitful in that band’s (too)-long history. Sorry to harsh the nostalgia mellow with mere facts, but if you’re going to make a film about music history, you should get your history straight. The remaining 88 minutes allows musicians, including David Crosby, Jackson Browne and Elton John, and comedians Steve Martin and Cheech and Chong, to look back fondly on the club as both a launching pad for talent and as a watering hole for hipsters and a celebrity scene that defined an era. “Troubadours” does allow time for some of the music critics of the era who chastised the L.A. sound for being too smug, slick and self-satisfied. The Troubadour was, after all, the place that launched the Eagles. ● A cash crop, a cultural force and a major American export well before the nation was founded, tobacco continues to divide, addict and delight Americans and people all over the world. “Cigarette Wars” (8 p.m., CNBC) examines the centuries-long paradox. Some in the government are trying to tax its use out of existence, while others help support its export to an ever-growing international population of smokers. “Wars” visits with planters in Kentucky and smokers in Poland and examines a thriving black market in smuggled smokes that results in billions of dollars of lost tax revenues. ● “Secrets of the Tribe” (7 p.m., HBO2) looks at fractures in the anthropology community on campuses and elsewhere. The battle involves the exhaustive scientific study of the Yanomami tribe in the Amazon, an academic pursuit that some contend has done irreparable damage to the tribe’s unique culture.

Many times you could assume a low-key role, but then change your mind and head in a totally different direction. Honor who you are. If you are single, you could meet someone very interesting.

Dear Annie: When I was 5, my mother married an abusive man. He talked down to us and often resorted to slapping and name calling. On at least three occasions, he was physically abusive — punching, throwing and beating us. On the other hand, he adopted us and often did nice things, too. When I had my first child, my husband and I moved away. We have maintained limited contact with my parents, although they can visit as often as they like. I prefer not to go to their home, where my stepfather is in charge. Recently, I explained to my mother that our children could not visit her without additional adult supervision. She became angry, saying it’s time I put the past behind me. She says I should remember the good things. She insists her husband would never hurt my children. But she also denies that he was abusive, saying he “lost control” only once. While I am upset with my mother for not protecting us, I feel guilty for denying her the pleasure of being the grandmother she wants to be. Without him, she would be a good one. How can I be a responsible mother and stop feeling like a bad daughter? — Unsettled in the West
