Despite loss, KU wins 9th-straight Big 12 title By Tom Keegan tkeegan@ljworld.com

WACO, TEXAS — The Kansas University basketball team clinched a share of its ninth consecutive Big 12 regularseason title and then watched Baylor celebrate at its expense Saturday at the Ferrell Center, where the Bears defeated KU, 81-58. Earlier in the day, Kansas

State lost to Oklahoma State, which ensured Kansas would at least tie for the title a couple of hours before the game in Waco tipped off. Kansas had taken a sevengame winning streak into the game and took out of the day the second-worst defeat in Bill Self’s 10 years on the job at Kansas. Pierre Jackson (28 points) and Cory Jefferson (25 points)

combined to make 22 of 26 shots from the field and greatly improved the Bears’ chances of making the NCAA tournament field, chances that had taken a major hit when they lost five of their last six games leading into Saturday’s upset. Ben McLemore (23 points) and Perry Ellis (12 points) were KU’s best performers during a comeback that brought the visiting team

within six points with 6:23 left. Baylor outscored Kansas 20-3 the rest of the way. KU (26-5 overall, 14-4 in the Big 12) next meets the winner of Wednesday’s Texas TechWest Virginia game, at 2 p.m. Thursday at the Sprint Center in Kansas City, Mo.

may have just beaten Max Falkenstien in a game of handball. I’m not sure. I’m mainly just glad he didn’t bust my glasses. When I walked into the room with him and shut the door behind me, he looked them over pretty good. “I’d be worried about those,” he said. Great. Not that I didn’t already have enough on my mind: Like these gloves. I’m wearing a pair of thick, leather work gloves, and apparently that is not the height of fashion in the world of handball. In my defense, they’re not my gloves. Lawrence dentist Ed Manda has loaned them to me. He plays handball three days a week, and always with leather work gloves instead of the specially made and more expensive handball gloves. Please see HANDBALL, page 5A

Open access to research, a focus at KU, getting national headlines By Matt Erickson merickson@ljworld.com

Taxpayers funded it. Researchers produced it. So why should scholarly work at universities sit behind fences built by publishing companies?

For a decade or so, Kansas University leaders have asked that question about academic research published in scholarly journals. But this year, the issue has made national headlines like never before.

WHEEL GENIUS

Road work planned for this week Lawrence City construction projects are now mapped at lawks.us/construction-map.

 The city will continue reworking the entire roadway of Iowa Street from Bob Billings Parkway south to the Irving Hill Overpass. Major delays are expected as there will only be one lane of traffic open in each direction. The city recommends that drivers avoid the area and use 23rd and Sixth streets to go east and west and Kasold Drive or Kentucky Street to go north and south. Construction is projected to last through May 2013.

 KDOT crews continue to perform work on the 23rd Street bridge between Haskell and Barker avenues, utility work and removal of the shoo-flys.

S

G

Two lanes of traffic are available in each direction.

 Street concrete will be reworked this week on Nicklaus Drive, Palmer Drive and Hogan Drive, east of Inverness Drive. Through traffic will generally be maintained, but there may be street closures.

 Traffic on Kansas Highway 10/23rd Street will be reduced to one lane periodically (east and west), and the speed limit in the work zone will be set at 45 mph, as geometric improvements are made to the intersection of 23rd Street and O’Connell Road to accommodate turn lanes and a new traffic signal. Intersection work will be completed by March 29, but the signalization will not be completed until June.

Kansas budget director offered to resign WICHITA (AP) — Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback’s budget director said he offered his resignation after supplying Brownback with an incorrect figure that led the Republican governor to make erroneous claims about state spending under his Democratic predecessor. Budget Director Steve Anderson said Friday that he offered his resignation after the $2 billion error on a spreadsheet found its way into a chart the governor used to claim credit for spending cuts that never happened, The Wichita Eagle reported. Brownback declined to accept the resignation. “As I told the governor when I offered my resignation, I not only would have accepted it, I would have ran me out of the state on a rail,� Anderson said during a speech Friday at the Republican Pachyderm Club in Wichita. “However, I guess it may be his version of punishment; he says, ‘You’re not getting off that easy.’� The error showed total state spending peaking at $16 billion during the state’s 2010 fiscal year, under Democratic Gov. Mark Parkinson. The actual spending for fiscal 2010 was about $14 billion. Relying on the mistaken figure, Brownback used a PowerPoint chart to suggest total state spending had declined significantly since he took office in January 2011. While total spending is lower now than it was two years ago, it’s still 2.6 percent higher under the current, fiscal 2013 budget than it was under the fiscal 2010 budget. Anderson said the erroneous spreadsheet was produced before he took office and he never saw it, but he felt he needed to take responsibility. “Appropriately, I offered the governor my resignation and even more appropriately, I offered every citizen of the state an apology,� Anderson said. The error was revealed in a Feb. 17 Wichita Eagle story that also questioned the Brownback administration’s calculation of school funding spent on classroom instruction. After the error came to light, Senate Minority Leader Anthony Hensley, D-Topeka, said the Brownback administration has “been fast and loose with the numbers since, well, ever since their administration started.� Anderson said he has taken steps to prevent similar errors and that he’s established a policy of personally reviewing all spreadsheets before they go to the governor’s office. He also said he originally intended to return to private accounting soon, but now plans to remain as budget director for “as long as the governor wishes me to be there.�

SCHOOL BOARD

Finance advisory panel to present comparative report By Peter Hancock phancock@ljworld.com

The Lawrence school board will hear a report Monday that compares the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s financial picture with that of other districts of varying sizes and demographic makeups. The Finance Advisory Board was established in January 2012 to provide feedback on finance and budget issues. The sevenmember group is chaired by former school board member Cindy Yulich. Also during Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meeting, the board will decide whether to charge the advisory panel with oversight of how bond proceeds are spent and make recommendations for the use of any underspent budgets and interest earnings. The report to be presented Monday compares the Lawrence district with 21 other districts in Kansas on factors such as total spending per pupil, total taxes and debt-per-student ratios. A Power Point presentation of the report is available online on the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website. The report shows the Lawrence district on the lower end of the scale for its debt-per-student ra-

tio and about average for its total property tax mill levy. The report is expected to become part of public discussions about the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposed $92.5 million bond issue that voters will decide in the April 2 election. District officials are calling it a â&#x20AC;&#x153;no-tax-increaseâ&#x20AC;? bond proposal because, if approved, they say those bonds would be issued in three phases, timed so that they will not result in an increase in the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s property tax levy for debt payments.

National Severe Weather Preparedness Week ended Saturday but Douglas County Emergency Management wants the community to continue to be prepared in case of severe weather. Jillian Rodrigue, assistant director of Douglas County Emergency Management, said a big theme this year is to be proactive and make sure communities nationwide are ready in the event of a weather emergency. â&#x20AC;&#x153;March is sort of the transition into spring and the week is an opportunity for all forces to take a whole week to remind (the community) that now is the time to be ready,â&#x20AC;? Rodrigue said. Preparedness week events in Douglas County included a statewide tornado siren testing Tuesday and ended Saturday at the Kansas Union with the 13th annual Severe Weather Symposium, hosted by Douglas County Emergency Management. The symposium included storm-expert speakers, a panel discussion and vendors promoting tools and awareness. The audience of more than 140 Please see WEATHER, page 4A

Q:

What happened to all of those senior football players on KUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team last season? I heard a little about Bradley McDougald and Tanner Hawkinson but didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hear a thing about the others.

A:

Nothing has happened yet. McDougald and Hawkinson were invited to participate in the NFL combine in Indianapolis, which featured more than 300 draft hopefuls. The rest of the group have been working out on their own or with trainers in preparation for the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual Pro Timing Day, March 15 in Lawrence, and the NFL Draft, April 25-27 in New York. Most analysts expect McDougald and Hawkinson to have a shot at getting drafted, but those players who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get selected are still eligible to join teams through free agency.

people from Kansas and Missouri was a mix of first responders, spotters, amateur radio operators, Douglas County Emergency Management volunteers, storm chasers and people who just wanted to learn more about severe weather. Rodrigue said that when the symposium first started, it was meant to be an advanced training course, but as it continued to get larger it became a way to train and educate beyond a basic class so spotters have the information they need to continue to provide the community with â&#x20AC;&#x153;ground truth.â&#x20AC;?

The more accurate the report, the better prepared people can be when the severe weather hits their area. Rodrigue urged people in the area to have a plan ready now, make an emergency kit and stay informed of the weather rather than waiting until after a warning or watch has been issued. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Severe weather happens and we need to be prepared for when it happens, not if it happens,â&#x20AC;? Rodrigue said. For more tips and information on how to prepare for severe weather, visit www.ready.gov.

Women want students to run â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;marathonsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; SALINA â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Two Salina women have been working to get schoolchildren involved in running and would like to see more of them complete full marathons, even it takes several weeks. Dana Kossow and Louise Comfort have been so successful with their School Marathon program in Salina over the last nine years that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hoping to get elementary school students across the country to participate, The Salina Journal reported. In the program, children begin running an average of one mile a day during a sixweek period, and by the end of the six weeks each child will have run 26.2 miles. The School Marathon program was created by Kossow in 2004 at Meadowlark Ridge Elementary School

in Salina, where her three children attended. Kossow, a runner, was inspired to create the program during a trip to the Boston Marathon, where she saw a group of children from a local running club complete a one-mile segment as part of their own marathon. She came back and developed a program at Meadowlark Ridge that all students could accomplish. When the marathon program began during the fall of 2004, the result astonished Kossow. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had kids running along with parents, grandparents, relatives and siblings,â&#x20AC;? she said. Elementary schools in Salina and Lindsborg so far have combined for a total of 29 school marathons in nine years.

By Nikki Wentling Special to the Journal-World

For the past year, Terri Friedline, an associate professor in social welfare at Kansas University, has conducted research about college savings for lowincome families, and how this changes the expectations that kids have for themselves and for their futures. Last week, Friedline explained her research and that of the Assets and Education Initiative at the School of Social Welfare to the Kansas House General Government Budget Committee, which was considering a bill that would abolish the Kansas Investment in Developing Scholars (K.I.D.S.) program. K.I.D.S. is a matchinggrant program established in 2006 that encourages qualifying families to save for college by matching funds dollar-for-dollar, up to $600 per year. The money may be used for tuition, books, rent or any other approved expense. There is a maximum of 1,200 accounts allotted, and there are 988 in use this fiscal year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Encouraging college savings capitalizes on the aspirations of low-income children and changes their assessment of their futures,â&#x20AC;? Friedline said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you want to help students think about going

LAW ENFORCEMENT REPORT There were no incidents to report Saturday.

to college, you give them a savings account. If you want them to save in the account, then you provide a match.â&#x20AC;? But Scott Gates, who administers the program, said that while the state treasurer thinks K.I.D.S. is an important incentive for people who use it, it is hard to ask taxpayers to fund it. According to the fiscal note that accompanies the bill, abolishing the program has the potential to save the state up to $720,000 in fiscal year 2014. Gates also said the treasurer would prefer for the program to be eliminated rather than forcing the state to decide to fund it one year and not the next. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to explain this to people each year,â&#x20AC;? Gates said. During the hearing on House Bill 2317 on Thursday, Rep. Mark Kahrs, R-Wichita, said he had concerns that the program was being â&#x20AC;&#x153;gamedâ&#x20AC;? by participants, who may enroll in college and then drop out to receive the total refund into their personal accounts. Gates said he was not sure if this was happening, because while the state could pay the tuition bill directly to the college for the student, it could not receive the refund if a student were to drop out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is probably an assumption that is consis-

tent with other concerns about providing assistance to low-income families,â&#x20AC;? Friedline said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is this concern about fraud. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t speak to specifics about how often it occurs, but I would imagine if you wanted to game the system, there would be other, easier ways to go about it.â&#x20AC;? Rep. Pete DeGraaf, RMulvane, asked Gates if program participants go deeper into debt as a result of starting the savings process but also having to take out student loans. Gates said he did not have the data to know how often that situation occurred. Another committee member questioned whether the families who qualify for the program were actually in need of the funds provided by the state. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If this bill doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pass, it would be for 2013, a family of four could qualify who earns $47,100,â&#x20AC;? said Rep. Virgil Peck, R-Tyro. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In some part of Kansas, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not that bad of a living at all.â&#x20AC;? Along with Friedline, the United Way of Greater Kansas City, Kansas Action for Children and United Community Services of Johnson County opposed the elimination of the program. The committee will work on the bill this week.

His choice has not gone unnoticed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you play with mittens, Manda?â&#x20AC;? a locker room passerby asked him a few moments earlier. Maybe he will some day, because, if the age of the room is any indication, he still has plenty of years left to play the game. Falkenstien is 88 and he may well be the dean of Lawrence handball. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s played the game for about 70 years, and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s now part of a group of about a dozen other guys who routinely meet three times a week at the former Lawrence Athletic Club (now Genesis) to play handball. And I just beat him. Perhaps. This is of some importance because I have heard the story of how Falkenstien â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the legendary voice of the Kansas Jayhawks â&#x20AC;&#x201D; once beat All-American football player and KU/ NFL icon Gale Sayers in a handball game. So, I just beat the guy who beat Gale Sayers. Perhaps. (At least that is how I will forever tell the story.)

Dying sport Handball â&#x20AC;&#x201D; in case you havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ascertained by now â&#x20AC;&#x201D; is a sport I have never played before. That explains why I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t show up with the proper eye protection and now appear well-equipped to stack a cord of firewood. I soon got a lesson in the sport. Rick Spano, who ended up serving as my partner, told me handball definitely is a two-handed game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You have to have an off hand,â&#x20AC;? Spano explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That takes a long time to develop. At least 50 years, near as I can tell.â&#x20AC;? These days, it appears, a third hand would be useful in the sport too â&#x20AC;&#x201D; one to

Group members really thought I had played before. I kept waiting to hear some trademark Max Falkenstien commentary on my game, but I never did. Just as well, because I understand it is a bit different than what he offered at Allen Fieldhouse anyway. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He saves his commentary for when you are his partner and you miss a shot,â&#x20AC;? Spano said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most of it you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t print.â&#x20AC;? I missed plenty of shots, but I made a few, too. Enough to beat Falkenstien. Perhaps. You see, one thing I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quite get about the game was the scoring. I thought I had it figured out, but then I returned my mind to the important task of not getting hit by a rapidly moving ball. It was almost like I needed a professional color commentator to explain the scoring system to me, but Nick Krug/Journal-World Photo where are you going to find one of those?

office on the fifth floor of Watson Library and launched a coalition of North American institutions with policies urging researchers to allow open access to their work. Academic libraries must spend millions for journal subscriptions so faculty and students can stay up to date on the latest research in their fields. And members of the general public, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve paid for much of the scholarly research that goes on in the United States through federal grants, canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t access the resulting articles without paying hefty subscription fees. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As taxpayers, they fund it,â&#x20AC;? Haricombe said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They should have access to it. They shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to pay twice for it.â&#x20AC;? Of course, more open access to research is also in the financial interests of academic libraries. The push for open access arose in the 1990s as publishing companies increased subscription prices while library budgets shrank, Haricombe said. KU spends about $3.5 million, largely from state funds, on journal subscriptions each year.

Becoming a leader Haricombe and Marc Greenberg, a KU professor who has also pushed for open access, say that KU first became a leader on this issue because of David Shulenburger, who was KUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s provost from 1996 to 2006. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard several people describe KU as the epicenter of open access,â&#x20AC;? Haricombe said. Shulenburger helped create an open-access repository of research by KU faculty, called KU ScholarWorks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That gave us a foundation to build on, and then what it took was a visionary dean of librar-

L AWRENCE J OURNAL -W ORLD

And earlier in February, a bill was introduced in the U.S. House and Senate that would require open access to such research even sooner: within six months of publication. Called the Fair Access to Science and Technology Research Act, it has the appropriate acronym â&#x20AC;&#x153;FASTR.â&#x20AC;? Rep. Kevin Yoder, RKan., was a sponsor of the House bill, along with two Democrats. The Senate bill also has bipartisan support. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Within two weeks, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had two major steps forward,â&#x20AC;? Haricombe said. Haricombe said that one problem is â&#x20AC;&#x153;predatoryâ&#x20AC;? publishers that charge huge sums of money for subscriptions and also charge researchers â&#x20AC;&#x201D; for whom publishing journal articles is crucial for advancing their careers â&#x20AC;&#x201D; as much as $3,000 apiece to make their articles openly accessible. More than 30 KU faculty members, including Provost Jeff Vitter and Dean of Liberal Arts and Sciences Danny Anderson, have signed an online petition to boycott major journal publisher Elsevier; the petition alleges exorbitant subscription prices and other practices that discourage free access to research. Not only will they refuse to publish their work in an Elsevier journal, most of those faculty say, but they also wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take part in the peer-review process at the heart of scholarly publishing. KU will spend more than $1 million on subscriptions to journals by Elsevier this year, Haricombe said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve taken an intellectual commodity from a campus, and the vendors have made it a commercial commodity,â&#x20AC;? Haricombe said.

Too extreme? The Association of American Publishers, a national trade group, has

announced it opposes the FASTR bill but supports the White House order, saying it provides federal research agencies more flexibility. Andi Sporkin, a spokeswoman for the AAP, noted that many open-access scholarly journals, which allow for free or cheap access to articles, do exist. She said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to remember that though much research is funded by the federal government, the publishing of that research requires other work: vetting, peer review, distribution. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All that work is not funded by the government,â&#x20AC;? Sporkin said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all private-sector industry.â&#x20AC;? She said AAP views the White House policy as a good compromise, but the FASTR bill as too extreme. In her new chairwoman position, Haricombe will help set the agenda for the SPARC, which has staff in Washington, D.C., who lobby for open-access policy. She does so at a time when, she and Greenberg say, the issue has rarely been as visible. A commentary last week in the Chronicle of Higher Education argued that the Coalition of Open Access Policy Institutions â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the group that Haricombe and others at KU helped to found in 2011 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; could be as much of a â&#x20AC;&#x153;revolutionary, democratizing forceâ&#x20AC;? in higher education as the massive open online courses, or MOOCs, that have drawn much attention in the past year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All of a sudden, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been catapulted onto the national stage,â&#x20AC;? Haricombe said. That may be new, but as Haricombe and others at KU know, the workâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been going on for years. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Kansas University reporter Matt Erickson can be reached at 832-6388. Follow him at Twitter.com/LJW_KU, and come see him at his next KU â&#x20AC;&#x153;office hoursâ&#x20AC;?: 9 a.m. to noon Wednesday in the Media Crossroads, fourth floor of the Kansas Union.

BRIEFLY Group gets $406K for Andover children ANDOVER â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A child advocacy group has been awarded a major challenge grant for building a new childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home in southcentral Kansas. The Wichita Eagle reports that the J.E. and L.E. Mabee Foundation, a Delawarebased nonprofit, is providing $406,000 in a challenge grant to the Sunlight Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Advocacy and Rights Foundation. The foundation needs to raise about $480,000 more by January 2014 to secure the grant. The foundation has been trying to raise $2.5 million to build Sunshine Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Home in Andover for children from Butler, Elk and Greenwood counties who have been temporarily removed from their homes because of abuse or neglect. Children in those counties now are taken to Wichita for placement. The foundation has received about $1.8 million in gifts, pledges and in-kind donations for the home.

Bill would make cops get warrant for GPS TOPEKA â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A bill before a Kansas Senate committee would require police to obtain a warrant before attaching a GPS to a suspectâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vehicle. The House already passed the bill, which complies with a U.S. Supreme Court ruling. Kyle Smith, deputy director of the Kansas Bureau of Investigation, testified Thursday that Kansas law needs to be updated because it currently doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t address GPS search warrants. The Wichita Eagle reports an amendment to the bill would require customers to provide identification information to retailers when buying prepaid cellphones or SIM cards. Police could get that information from the Kansas Bureau of Investigation if they find such devices while investigating a crime.

Sistine Chapel readied for conclave this week VATICAN CITY (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Vatican sought Saturday to quash speculation that divisions among cardinals could drag out the conclave to elect the new pope, while preparations for the vote plowed ahead with firefighters installing the Sistine Chapel chimney that will tell the world when a decision has been reached. But the specter of an inconclusive first few rounds of secret balloting remained high, with no clear front-runner heading into Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s papal election and a long list of cardinals still angling to discuss the churchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s problems ahead of the vote. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have your mind absolutely made upâ&#x20AC;? going into the conclave, U.S. Cardinal Justin Rigali, who participated in the 2005 conclave that elected Benedict XVI, told The Associated Press this week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You have your impressions.â&#x20AC;? The Vatican spokesman, however, took pains to stress the â&#x20AC;&#x153;vast,â&#x20AC;? nearunanimous decision by the 115 cardinal electors to set Tuesday as the conclave start date and noted that no conclave over the past century has dragged on for more than five days. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a process that can be carried out in a few days without much difficulty,â&#x20AC;? spokesman the Rev. Federico Lombardi said. While Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s initial voting will likely see

FIREFIGHTERS ON SATURDAY PLACE A CHIMNEY on the roof of the Sistine Chapel at the Vatican, where cardinals will gather to elect a new pope this week. a large number of candidates nominated, subsequent rounds will quickly whittle down the field to candidates who are likely to obtain the two-thirds majority, or 77 votes, necessary for victory, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This process of identifying the candidates who can receive the consensus and on whom cardinals can converge is a process that can move with notable speed,â&#x20AC;? Lombardi said. The Vatican was certainly going full-throttle Saturday with preparations: Inside the frescoed Sistine Chapel, workmen staple-gunned the brown felt carpeting to the false floor that has been constructed to even out the stairs and cover the jamming equipment that has been installed to prevent cellphone or eavesdropping devices from working. The interference was

working: cell phones had no reception in the chapel. Reporters allowed to visit the chapel used their phones instead to pose for photos in front of Michelangeloâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last Judgment,â&#x20AC;? the huge fresco behind the altar depicting a muscular Jesus surrounded by masses ascending to heaven and falling to hell. Off in the rear lefthand corner sat the stove, a century-old cast-iron oven where the voting ballot papers are burned, sending up puffs of smoke to tell the world if a pope has been elected (white smoke) or not (black). Elsewhere in the Apostolic Palace, officials on Saturday took measures to definitively end Benedict XVIâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pontificate, destroying his fishermanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ring and the personal seals and stamps he used for official papers.

BRIEFLY Rebels free 21 U.N. captives

Gays hope to win spousal benefits

BEIRUT (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Rebels in southern Syria freed 21 U.N. peacekeepers on Saturday after holding them hostage for four days, driving them to the border with Jordan after accusations from Western officials that the little-known group had tarnished the image of those fighting to topple President Bashar Assad. The abduction and the tortured negotiations that ended it highlight the disorganization of the rebel movement, which has hindered its ability to fight Assad and complicated vows by the U.S. and others to provide assistance. It also has raised concerns about the future of U.N. operations in the area. The Filipino peacekeepers were abducted on Wednesday by one of the rebel groups operating in southern Syria near the Jordanian border and the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, where a U.N. force has patrolled a cease-fire line between Israel and Syria for nearly four decades. Activists associated with the group, the Yarmouk Martyrs Brigade, gave different reasons for seizing the 21 men.

The Supreme Court will hear oral arguments this month in a challenge to a provision of the Defense of Marriage Act, or DOMA, that denies legally married gay and lesbian couples federal benefits available to heterosexual married couples, including tax and Social Security benefits. A decision is not expected until the end of June, but accountants and tax attorneys anticipating the 18-year-old lawâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s demise are already encouraging same-sex couples to seek prospective tax refunds, back retirement payments and other spousal subsidies they may have been denied. It is unclear how the justices might rule, but the Obama administration and former President Bill Clinton, who signed the act into law, have urged the court to overturn it on grounds that it violates the civil rights of gay Americans. DOMA supporters, including House Republicans led by Speaker John Boehner, argue that Congress, not the court, should decide as public opinion for same-sex marriage grows. Part of the urgency for couples to act stems from

deadlines established under the U.S. tax code, which gives taxpayers three years to file protective claims for income and estate tax refunds.

Venezuela sets election date CARACAS, VENEZUELA (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Venezuelans will vote April 14 to choose a successor to Hugo Chavez, the elections commission announced Saturday as increasingly strident political rhetoric began to roil the polarized country. The constitution mandated the election be held within 30 days of Chavezâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s March 5 death, but the date picked falls outside that period. Critics of the socialist government already complained that officials violated the constitution by swearing in Vice President Nicolas Maduro as acting leader Friday night. Chavezâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s boisterous state funeral Friday often felt like a political rally for his anointed successor, Maduro, who eulogized him by pledging eternal loyalty and vowing Chavezâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s movement will never be defeated. Maduro is expected to run as the candidate of Chavezâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s socialist party.

Punishment options Beyond the moral concerns many people have to capital punishment, Kansas lawmakers and families of victims also are making a dollars-andcents appeal.

S

entencing someone to death for a crime is an extremely serious matter. It shouldn’t be easy to either issue that sentence or carry it out. Many people have moral concerns about capital punishment, but there also are concerns about how great a drain those cases are on the state treasury. Legislation introduced last week in the Kansas House raises legitimate questions about whether it makes sense to maintain capital punishment in Kansas or to replace it with sentences of life without parole. Kansas is one of 33 states with a capital punishment law. Since the state reinstated the death penalty in 1994, Kansas has spent millions of dollars prosecuting death penalty cases and fighting appeals in those cases. During that time, 13 men have been sentenced to death in capital murder cases. Three of those men had their sentences vacated. The cases of the other 10 are at some stage of appeal. None of the sentences has resulted in the lethal injection provided for in Kansas law. In fact, no criminal has been executed in Kansas since 1965. The oldest capital punishment case still pending is that of Gary Kleypas, who was convicted in Crawford County and received a death sentence on March 11, 1998, almost exactly 15 years ago. The 2013 Legislator Briefing Book prepared by the Kansas Legislative Research Department estimates that cases in which the death penalty is sought may cost the state about 70 percent more than similar cases that don’t seek that penalty. In addition to the costs to local courts and law enforcement, the Kansas Board of Indigents’ Defense maintains a death penalty defense unit with four public defenders who specialize in capital punishment issues and a current annual budget of $1.63 million. The briefing book cites a 2003 audit of 22 first-degree murder cases that found that the median cost for cases in which the death penalty was imposed was about $1.2 million, compared with about $700,000 for cases in which it was not. Some people think that money could be spent in better ways. A key provision of the legislation introduced last week is to take the money the state could save by eliminating the death penalty and use it to help the families of homicide victims. A poignant column published in the Wichita Eagle last month proposes yet another use for the money that would be saved. The column’s author, Neely Goen, is the daughter of a Kansas Highway Patrol trooper who was killed in 1978. Her mother was pregnant at the time and Neely was born after his death. In the column, Goen disagrees with those who think the capital punishment law is a significant deterrent to crime and notes that five states have repealed their death penalty laws in the last five years. She also contends that such laws simply cause more trauma for families by dragging them through prolonged trials and appeals. That money would be better spent, she said, providing services for those families and “equipping people like my father who are on the front lines, or toward other programs that actually reduce crime.” Is the capital punishment law a good use of Kansas tax dollars? The arguments to the contrary by legislators and the trooper’s daughter deserve serious consideration. LAWRENCE

Bullying overreach is ‘inappropriate’ WASHINGTON — Rodney Francis is insufficiently ambitious. The pastor of the Washington Tabernacle Baptist Church in St. Louis has entered the fray over guns, violence and humanity’s fallen nature with a plan for a “buyback” of children’s toy guns. And toy swords and other make-believe weapons. There is, however, a loophole in the pastor’s panacea. He neglects the problem of ominously nibbled and menacingly brandished breakfast pastries. Joshua Welch — a boy, wouldn’t you know; no good can come of these turbulent creatures — who is 7, was suspended from second grade in Maryland’s Anne Arundel County last week because of his “Pop-Tart pistol.” While eating a rectangular fruit-filled sugary something — nutritionist Michelle Obama probably disapproves of it, and don’t let Michael Bloomberg get started — Joshua tried biting it into the shape of a mountain, but decided it looked more like a gun. So with gender-specific perversity he did the natural thing. He said, “Bang, bang.” But is this really natural? Or is nature taking a back seat to nurture, yet again? Is Joshua’s “bang, bang” a manifestation of some prompting in our defective social atmosphere, and therefore something society could and should stamp out? While some might enjoy dogpaddling around in this deep philosophic water, Joshua’s school, taking its cue from Hamlet, did not

By now, Americans may be numb to such imbecilities committed by the government institutions to which they entrust their children for instruction.” allow its resolve to be “sicklied o’er with the pale cast of thought.” More eager to act than to think, the school suspended Joshua and sent a letter to all the pupils’ parents, urging them to discuss the “incident” — which the school includes in the category “classroom disruptions” — with their children “in a manner you deem most appropriate.” Ah, yes. The all-purpose adjective “appropriate.” The letter said “one of our students used food to make inappropriate gestures” and although “no physical threats were made and no one was harmed” the code of student conduct stipulates “appropriate consequences.” The letter, suffused with the therapeutic ethic, suggested that parents help their children “share their feelings” about all this. It also said the school

counselor is available, presumably to cope with PostPastry Trauma Syndrome. By now, Americans may be numb to such imbecilities committed by the government institutions to which they entrust their children for instruction. Nothing surprises after that 5-year-old Pennsylvania girl was labeled a “terroristic threat,” suspended from school and ordered to undergo a psychological evaluation because she talked about shooting herself and others with her Hello Kitty gun that shoots bubbles. But looking on the bright side, perhaps we should welcome these multiplying episodes as tutorials about the nature of the regulatory state that swaddles us ever more snuggly with its caring. If so, give thanks for the four Minnesota state legislators whose bill would ban “bullying” at school. They define this as the use of words, images or actions that interfere with an individual’s ability “to participate in a safe and supportive learning environment.” Bullying may include, among many other things, conduct that has a “detrimental effect” on a student’s “emotional health.” Or conduct that “creates or exacerbates a real or perceived imbalance of power between students.” Or violates a student’s “reasonable expectation of privacy.” Or conduct that “does not rise to the level of harassment” but “relates to” — yes, relates to — “the actual or perceived race, ethnicity, color, creed, religion, nation-

al origin, immigration status, sex, age, marital status, familial status, socioeconomic status, physical appearance, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, academic status, disability, or status with regard to public assistance, age, or any additional characteristic defined” in another Minnesota statute. If this becomes law, it will further empower the kind of relentless improvers and mindless protectors who panic over Pop-Tart pistols and discern terrorism in Hello Kitty bubble guns. Such people in Minnesota will be deciding what behavior — speech, usually — damages a “supportive learning environment.” They will be sniffing out how students’ speech or other behavior has real or perceived — by whom? — effects on the balance of “power” between other students. And school bureaucracies will ponder whether what Sally told Eleanor about Brad’s behavior with Pam after the prom violated Brad’s, or perhaps Pam’s, “reasonable expectation of privacy.” Government is failing spectacularly at its core functions, such as budgeting and educating. Yet it continues to multiply its peripheral and esoteric responsibilities, tasks that require it to do things for which it has no aptitude, such as thinking and making common-sense judgments. Government nowadays is not just embarrassing, it is — let us not mince words — inappropriate. — George Will is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.

Introverts often are misunderstood It’s not just a women’s issue. Granted, that’s how many of us are framing last month’s decision by Marissa Mayer, CEO of Yahoo! Inc., to end telecommuting and require all employees to report to the office. It ignited a firestorm of controversy over whether Mayer, a working mother herself, has backstabbed the sisterhood. Columnist Kathleen Parker called it the latest iteration of the “mommy war.” But there’s another reason we should be debating Mayer’s policy: some people simply work better alone. My colleagues are rolling their eyes now, so let me rush to provide full disclosure. I’ve worked mainly from home for more than 20 years, going into the office just enough that they don’t give my desk away. I don’t do it because it’s more convenient. I don’t do it because I hate the commute. I do it because I’m an introvert. The word is not a synonym for “shy,” though as a boy, I was that, too. But where shyness is an outsized fear of other people’s disapproval or of social embarrassment, to be an introvert is to be inward turning, more at home in small, intimate groups than large, boisterous ones. It is to prefer the quiet to the

loud, reflection to exhortation, solitude to socializing. For years, I struggled with that, wondered why I prefer the rainy afternoon spent watching old movies or reading a book to the sunny afternoon at a backyard barbecue watching people do the electric slide. Then, last year, I chanced upon a book, “Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking” by Susan Cain. It was the first time anyone had ever explained me to me. Turns out I’m not the only one. Turns out introversion is perfectly normal. Except that our culture is

biased toward extroverts. It’s a bias reflected both in Mayer’s decision and in the attagirls she has received from the likes of New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg. He argues, as she did, that collaboration — “synergy” is the buzzword — produces the best results. This is conventional wisdom in American business. Indeed, Cain notes that per person square footage in offices has shrunk by over half since the ‘70s in the belief that “open space” floor plans that force people together facilitate teamwork and, thus, productivity. For some of us, it probably does. But not for all. The savvy CEO will understand this, will realize that the alone space is where introverts find the stuff that powers their best work and will — wherever practical — accommodate that. And, as Cain points out, quiet people, left to their own devices, have produced rather significant moments in culture, science and politics. Her list of their contributions includes: the theory of relativity; “1984,” “Schindler’s List,” Charlie Brown, Google and the Montgomery bus boycott. All that said, I have a sinking fear that after this column, I’ll never be invited to another backyard barbecue

again. Good friends, please invite me; I’ll even bring the banana pudding. But at the same time, please forgive me if I leave early. As Cain notes, it is not that the introvert doesn’t enjoy the company of others. Rather, it’s that after a certain point, it leaves him feeling physically drained. That’s who I am — less Bill Clinton than Al Gore — and I’ve given myself permission to stop fighting it. Marissa Mayer may or may not be a traitor to modern mommyhood. But she has certainly bought into the one-size-fits-all mentality that says productivity and creativity are found when colleagues meet at the water cooler — and only there. She is wrong and I am proof. This week, I’ll go into the office to make sure my desk is still there. I’ll kibitz with my friends. But when it’s time to get down to work I’ll slip on the noise-cancelling headphones, block out the world and seek what people like me always, instinctively seek: a quiet and alone inner space where it is possible to simply, finally … Be. — Leonard Pitts Jr. is a columnist for the Miami Herald.

ROGER HILDEBEITEL INSPECTS Peeps as they move through the manufacturing process at the Just Born factory in Bethlehem, Pa. As the candy brand celebrates its 60th anniversary this year, a quirky new TV ad campaign talks about all the things people do with their Peeps.

Hot chicks: At 60, Peeps more popular than ever By Michael Rubinkam Associated Press

BETHLEHEM, PA. — It’s Easter morning. A boy rouses his younger brother, and they run to the living room to find their baskets filled with — what else? — Peeps. “Peeps are THE candy of Easter,” the excited boy tells his wide-eyed sibling, who pops a yellow marshmallow chick in his mouth. “You can eat ‘em, smash ‘em, microwave ‘em, deep fry ‘em, roast ‘em on a stick,” the boy explains. That’s not all. You can make “historically accurate Peeps dioramas ... Peeps pop art ... You can make a Peeps topiary.” As the candy brand celebrates its 60th anniversary this year, Peeps’ first TV ad in a decade captures an essential truth about the spongy confection: Love them or hate them, people do all sorts of things with Peeps, only some of which involve giving them to kids at Easter. “Everyone seems to have a Peeps story,” says Ross Born, third-generation operator of Just Born Inc., which hatches 5 million Peeps a day at its plant 60 miles north of Philadelphia. “And they are free and willing to talk about how they eat their Peeps, how they cure them, how they store them, how they decorate with them.”

Just Born calls it the “Peepsonality” of consumers who buy Peeps not only to eat, but also to play around with. “If you had asked me about this 25 years ago, I would’ve been rather bewildered about the whole thing,” Born confesses. “We were candy makers.” Not that he’s complaining. Just Born had its best year financially in 2012. His grandfather, Russian immigrant Sam Born, started the candy company out of a Brooklyn storefront 90 years ago. Born advertised the freshness of his product with a sign that said “Just Born.” The name stuck. The burgeoning business moved to Bethlehem and acquired the Peeps brand with its 1953 purchase of Rodda Candy Co. of Lancaster. Best known for its jelly beans, Rodda had also introduced a small line of marshmallow chicks and bunnies, employing dozens of women who hand-squeezed them out of pastry bags. “It was really very difficult, and these women were strong,” said David Shaffer, Sam Born’s nephew and co-CEO along with Ross Born. Ross’s father, Bob Born, a physicist and engineer by training, automated the process in the mid-1950s, and a version of the machine he invented is still in use today, extruding millions of those familiar

shapes on peak-Peep production days. The company has never suffered an unprofitable year. But its growth has always been relatively slow, and a few years ago, Born and Shaffer decided to accelerate it. They brought in a new management team, spent heavily on marketing and broke back into the chocolate business, introducing chocolate-dipped Peeps as well as Peepsters, small cream-filled chocolate candies. They also focused on holiday seasons other than Easter, particularly Christmas. The result: Shaffer says last year was “off the charts.” While the company churns out more than 1 billion Peeps this Easter season — a record — it sees the 60th anniversary as another marketing opportunity and a chance to connect with its fans via social media. In addition to the TV ads, it’s promoting a Facebook survey that asks fans if they like their Peeps fresh, frozen, or “aged to perfection.” So which is it, Ross Born? Fresh or stale? He’s happy to address that perennial Peeps debate. Just don’t ask him to take sides. “It’s just like politics,” Born said. “You’ve got people way on one side, and way on the other side, but there are a whole lot of people in the middle.”

NYC’s soda-size rule eyed from barbecue joints to bowling alleys By Jennifer Peltz Associated Press

NEW YORK — At barbecue joints, coffee counters and bottle-service nightclubs, a coming clampdown on big, sugary soft drinks is beginning to take shape on menus in a city that thrives on eating and going out. Some restaurants are ordering smaller glasses, Dunkin’ Donuts shops are telling customers they’ll have to sweeten their own coffee, and Coca-Cola has printed posters explaining the new rules — all in preparation for the nation’s first limit on the size of sugar-laden beverages, set to take effect Tuesday. City officials say it’s a pioneering, practical step to staunch an obesity rate that has risen from 18 to 24 percent in a decade among adult New Yorkers. Health officials say sugar-filled drinks bear much of the blame because they carry hundreds of calories — a 32-ounce soda has more than a typical fast-food cheeseburger — without making people feel full. The city “has the ability to do this and the obligation to try to help,” Mayor Michael Bloomberg said last month. Critics say the regulation won’t make a meaningful difference in diets, and will hurt certain types of businesses while sparing others. A customer who can’t get a 20-ounce Coke at a sandwich shop could still

buy it at a 7-Eleven, for instance, since many convenience stores are beyond the city’s regulatory reach. New Yorkers are divided on the restriction. A Quinnipiac University poll released last week found 51 percent opposed it, while 46 percent approved. “I don’t know if the state should be our surrogate parent,” Peter Sarfaty, 71, said. “You get the information out there, but to tell people what they can or can’t do? As if it’s going to stop them.” Business organizations, from the massive American Beverage Association to a local Korean-American grocers’ group, have asked a judge to stop the limit from taking effect until he decides on their bid to block it altogether. He hasn’t ruled on either request. Many businesses aren’t taking chances in the meantime. At Brother Jimmy’s BBQ, for instance, customers still will be able to order margaritas by the pitcher and heaping plates of ribs. But they’ll no longer get 24-ounce tumblers of soda, since the new rule bars selling nondiet cola in containers bigger than 16 ounces. “Everything we do is big, so serving it in a quaint little 16-ounce soda cups is going to look kind of odd,” owner Josh Lebowitz said. Nonetheless, he’s ordered 1,000 of them for the North Carolina-themed restaurant’s five Manhattan locations, rather

than take on a fight that carries the threat of $200 fines. Dunkin’ Donuts shops, meanwhile, have set out colorful fliers explaining the complex rules surrounding coffee. Lots of lattes are exempt because they’re more than half milk. And it’s OK for customers to load their large and extra-large coffees with all the sugar or sweet flavoring they want. But the chain will no longer do it for them, for fear of running over the limit of roughly 3 calories per ounce. Some businesses, though, are adapting to the new rule with gusto. At Frames Bowling Lounge, a Manhattan spot that mixes bowling with an upscale bar, the families who pack the lanes on weekends will no longer be offered pitchers of soda as part of a party package, executive general manager Ayman Kamel said. Instead, they can get individual, eight-ounce cups of soda — or pitchers of the low-sugar, house-made juices that he and staffers spent an afternoon tasting this week. They experimented with such options as carrot, beet and mint-and-citrus. “It’s going to cost a little bit more money, but nothing is more valuable than having freshly squeezed juice available for our clients,” he said. “We’re taking advantage of the situation to promote the good side — healthy options.”

COACHES AND PLAYERS ON THE KANSAS UNIVERSITY BENCH WATCH THE FINAL SECONDS of the Jayhawks’ 81-58 loss to Baylor on Saturday in Waco, Texas. KU lost the game, but still ended up with a share of the Big 12 regular-season crown.

KU misses out on outright title By Gary Bedore gbedore@ljworld.com

WACO, TEXAS — There was no dancing, no high-fiving, no hugging, no hoisting of the Big 12 championship trophy in Kansas University’s basketball locker room Saturday night in Ferrell Center. “It doesn’t feel like we won it at all, really,” KU senior center Jeff Withey said after the Jayhawks’ 81-58 blowout loss at Baylor. “We tied with Kansas State (for league crown). It’s cool to win nine in a row, but it just stinks to lose.” All the celebrating took place on the court, where the home team’s students were invited by BU coach Scott Drew. He grabbed a micro-

phone and asked the students to join his Bears (18-13, 9-9) , who might have earned an NCAA Tournament berth by beating the No. 4-ranked Jayhawks (26-5, 14-4). KU’s players, meanwhile, were left to wonder what the heck happened just hours after Kansas State lost to Oklahoma State — a loss that guaranteed KU a share of its ninth straight conference crown no matter the outcome of Saturday’s BU game. “I didn’t watch it, but had people text me. They said KState (also 14-4) lost to Oklahoma State,” Withey said. “I don’t think it affected us.

WACO, TEXAS — The ghost of Peter (Arness) Graves popped into my head and told me Saturday night that my mission, should I decide to accept it, is to try to make Jayhawk Nation feel as if Saturday’s shellacking at the hands of a Baylor team that had lost five of its previous six games isn’t cause for concern heading into the Big 12 tournament, an entertaining bridge to the best event in all of sports. OK. Here goes: Had Kansas won Saturday, instead of losing 81-58 at Ferrell Center — where Baylor coach Scott Drew went onto the floor, took the microphone and told the students to storm the court after security personnel had

Andrea Geubelle won her second gold, in the triple jump

Natalia Bartnovskaya won Please see KU WOMEN, page 6B the pole vault

FAYETTEVILLE, ARK. — Kansas University had two more individual national champions, and the KU women’s track-and-field team repeated as national NCAA Indoor runner-up Saturday. Andrea Geubelle became the fourth athlete to win both triple- and long-jump titles when she easily won the triple-jump gold Saturday, and Natalia Bartnovskaya won the pole vault. “It was a tremendous weekend with some great performances,” 13-year KU coach Stanley Redwine said. “Having three national champions is amazing. The athletes and the coaches have done a great

job of representing Kansas well, and it’s great to again see all their hard work paying off.” KU scored a school-best 44 points to place second behind national champ Oregon (56 points). Geubelle won the longjump title Friday, then Saturday turned in four jumps over 45 feet in six attempts at the triple-jump. She won with a careerbest and school-record mark of 14.18 meters (46 feet, 61⁄4 inches) on her fourth attempt. The distance was the fourth-longest in NCAA history and just two inches shy of tying the American record. Just three other athletes have won long- and triple-

jump titles at an NCAA Indoor meet, and none since 2003. She tied Dartmouth’s Abbey D’Agostino as the meet’s high-point scorer, with 20. Bartnovskaya had the performance of her career earlier in the evening in the pole vault. The Krasnoyarsk, Russia, native won her first NCAA Indoor title and KU’s second in the event. Bartnovskaya vaulted to five-straight clearances without recording a foul, the only competitor to do so. She cleared a career-best and school-record height of 4.45 meters (14 feet, 71⁄4 inches) on her second attempt and won by virtue of fewer fouls. Please see KU TRACK, page 3B

Hornish claims Nationwide victory LAS VEGAS (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Sam Hornish Jr. didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know the name of Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s race until he went to the driversâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; meeting for the Samâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Town 300. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a pretty good one for me to win,â&#x20AC;? he thought to himself. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Already got my name on the trophy.â&#x20AC;? Hornish survived two restarts in the final 15 laps and held off Kyle Busch to win the Nationwide Series race at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Hornish led 114 laps in his second career Nationwide victory, but needed a strong finish to outrun Busch, the hometown driver who won the Nationwide race last week in Phoenix. Hornish credited the win to his dominant car, all the more impressive since the drivers got almost no practice on the 1.5-mile tri-oval due to Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rain. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You dream about having cars like this,â&#x20AC;? Hornish said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think

I used more energy celebrating than I did actually driving the car today.â&#x20AC;? Hornish and Busch both went aggressively after the final restart with seven laps to go, with Busch briefly nudging ahead before Hornish reclaimed the lead with five laps left. Hornish got clear of Busch and finished comfortably in a caution-filled race. With his third top-10 finish in three races this season, Hornish

moved atop the points race and gave owner Roger Penske his first victory at Las Vegas in any NASCAR series â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and Penskeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first win since moving from Dodge to Ford in the offseason.

By Mark Bradley Atlanta Journal-Constitution

A college basketball season without form and often without function generated a 48-hour refresher course in Chaos Theory this week. Beginning Tuesday and carrying into Thursday, we saw: O Indiana, which could have clinched its first outright Big Ten title since 1993, lose at home to an Ohio State team it had thumped on the road. O Georgetown, which had won 11 games in succession and which could have clinched a share of the Big East title, lose at Villanova by 10 points. O Miami, which could have clinched its first outright ACC title ever, lose at home to a Georgia Tech team it had thumped on the road. O UCLA, which was tied for first place in the Pac-12, lose by 12 points to last-place Washington State, which hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t beaten the Bruins in Pullman since 1993. O Kentucky, which won it all last season but has nearly played its way into the NIT, lose to a sub-.500 Georgia team by 10 points. It was no accident that, at the start of this careening week, Gonzaga became the fifth different team to be ranked No. 1 this season. The Bulldogs, as ever, are a polished and potent squad, but when a team that hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t beaten anyone any better than Saint Maryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s since New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ascends to the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top spot, it tells us all we need to know about the state of the nation. A week from Selection Sunday, clarity and consensus remain in hibernation. The 2012 NCAA Tournament began with five teams having stamped themselves as a cut above â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Kentucky, North Carolina, Syracuse, Michigan State and Kansas. Any one of those five teams had more going for it than anybody on this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s board. This might well be the year that a 16th seed unhorses a No. 1, for the simple reason that these projected No. 1â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s look like No. 3â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. Indiana entered the season ranked No. 1, but the Hoosiers donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t guard very well â&#x20AC;&#x201D; where have you gone, Quinn Buckner? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t rebound, either. Michigan doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t defend much, either. Florida has had issues closing out games. Kansas looked great up until the moment when it forgot how to win. Miami seemed to have separated itself from the ACC pack, only to lose three of its next four games. It would be a stretch to say any team in the nation looks good enough to win six (if not seven) NCAA Tournament games, but some team will. Maybe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be Duke: In a field where nobody stands out, coaching might well be the determinant. Maybe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be Michigan State, where the same applies. Maybe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be Louisville, which looked awful in mid-January but hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t lost in regulation since. Or maybe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be a team from a lesser league. Maybe Gonzaga, which has lost only twice, or Butler, which beat Gonzaga, or VCU, which has distinguished itself in Year 1 in the Atlantic 10.

TIGER WOODS HITS FROM THE THIRD TEE during the third round of the Cadillac Championship on Saturday in Doral, Fla.

Woods fires 67, stretches lead to four at Doral DORAL, FLA. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Tiger Woods hit a tee shot that got stuck in a palm tree. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about the only thing that didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fall his way Saturday in the Cadillac Championship. Woods made seven more birdies on the Blue Monster at Doral, the last one from 15 feet on the 18th hole that gave him a 5-under 67 and a four-shot lead over Graeme McDowell heading into the final round. Woods has made 24 birdies and taken only 74 putts through three rounds, both personal bests in his PGA Tour career. It put him in great position to win his 17th career World Golf Championship, and his first since 2009. He has a 39-2 record when he has the outright lead going into the final round on the PGA Tour. The only time he has lost a lead of more than two shots was in 2010 against an 18-man field at the Chevron World Challenge, when McDowell beat him in a playoff. McDowell was six shots out of the lead with three holes to play when he tried to keep it close. His drive on the 16th finished just over the green, and he chipped in for eagle. He picked up another shot on the 17th when Woodsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; tee shot embedded high into the trunk of a palm tree. Once his ball was identified, he took a penalty drop and made bogey. Woods made birdie to reach 18-under 198, and McDowell did well to stay only four shots behind with a two-putt from 85 feet away. That gave him a 69, and another date with Woods in the final group at Doral. Phil Mickelson, who badly wanted to get into the final group, overcame a three-putt from four feet for double bogey on the third hole by making four birdies the rest of the way. He had a 69, along with Steve Stricker, and both were five shots behind.

BOXING

Hopkins oldest to win title NEW YORK â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Bernard Hopkins became the oldest boxer to win a major title on Saturday night, scoring a 12-round unanimous decision over Tavoris Cloud to claim the IBF light heavyweight championship. The 48-year-old Hopkins broke the record he set by beating Jean Pascal for the WBC light heavyweight title on May 21, 2011. Hopkins improved to 53-6-2 in the main event of an eight-fight card at the Barclays Center. It was his 29th title bout. The 30-year-old Cloud fell to 19-1.

TORONTO â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Robert Earnshaw scored twice, and Toronto FC snapped a 15-game MLS winless streak with a 2-1 victory over Sporting Kansas City on Saturday. Kansas City finished 40 points ahead of Toronto last season but came out sluggish, just as it had done the previous week before rallying to defeat Philadelphia 3-1. The second half was a different story but Toronto weathered the storm until the 77th minute, when Argentine striker Claudio Bieler, taking to a flick-on header from C.J. Sapong, fired a right-footed shot past Joe Bendik to cut the lead to 2-1.

Rain, runs pour in for KU baseball By Benton Smith basmith@ljworld.com

While most of his teammates entertained themselves in the locker room during a two-hour weather delay before Kansas University’s baseball series finale with Niagara Saturday afternoon at Hoglund Ballpark, KU starting pitcher Thomas Taylor wanted to keep his mind on the task at hand. So the 6-foot-4 senior right-hander from Overland Park exiled himself to the KU dugout, watched the rain fall onto the turf, Richard Gwin/Journal-World Photos heard the occasional claps CORY WHITE, OF OLATHE, RUNS PAST KANSAS FOOTBALL PLAYERS Michael Reynolds (55), Chris Martin (56) and Ty of thunder and every now McKinney (97) during a KU football skills clinic for Special Olympians on Saturday at Anschutz Sports Pavilion. and then found some entertainment on the video board in right field, which showed part of Oklahoma State’s men’s basketball victory over Kansas State. “I just sat there and waited,” Taylor said. ———— Though far from exciting, his approach worked.

But Taylor got Greg Rodgers to line out to second baseman Tommy Mirabelli to end the inning, and struck out two of the four batters he faced in the sixth. Junior reliever Jordan Piché pitched three innings and gave up one run for his second save. KU built a seven-run advantage with three-run innings in the first and third and by plating one run in the second. Jordan Dreiling (sacrifice fly), Michael Suiter (single) and Connor McKay (infield fly) drove in a run apiece in the first. Dreiling made it a 4-0 KU lead in the second when he drilled an RBI-single off of starting pitcher Kyle Olver’s ankle. Kansas piled on in the third with an RBI-double from Mirabelli and a two-run single from Dakota Smith. A sophomore outfielder from Leavenworth, Smith went 2-for-5 with three RBI and said most of the Jayhawks waited out the weather delay by watching TV in the locker room. With just one more game separating Kansas from the start of conference play, Smith said the Jayhawks wanted to make up for a mildly productive offensive doubleheader the day before. “We knew we needed to come out and get rolling coming into Big 12 play, and we knew we could do it this weekend,” Smith said after KU registered 13 hits, matching its twogame total from Friday’s doubleheader. Kansas will play host to Jackson State at 3 p.m. Wednesday before traveling to Fort Worth, Texas, for a three-game series at TCU, which begins on Friday. Niagara Kansas

BAYLOR 81, KANSAS 58

L AWRENCE J OURNAL -W ORLD

Pair of Bears did most damage vs. KU By Tom Keegan tkeegan@ljworld.com

WACO, TEXAS — This is what transpired on the Ferrell Center court in the minutes before and after Kansas University officially became co-champion of the Big 12 Saturday, when it lost to Baylor, 8158. Baylor senior guard A.J. Walton dropped on his back onto the floor and then kissed the giant BU. Pierre Jackson then kissed

the floor, and they both checked out. After the final buzzer sounded, students lined up at the corners of the floor, as instructed by security personnel. Baylor coach Scott Drew, holding a microphone, beckoned the students onto the floor for a less-thanspontaneous, ahem, “storming” of the court. The lopsided victory injected badly needed life into Baylor’s tournament hopes. The Bears (18-13 overall, 9-9 in the Big 12)

had lost five of their last six games heading into the regular-season finale. Baylor appeared so big, fast and skilled Saturday it raised the question of how such a talented team possibly could go on such a bad stretch. “I think we’re good,” Jackson said. “We just have to stick our game plan and defend. When we defend and rebound, we’re a good team. I’m trying to preach that to the team.” When Baylor defends,

rebounds and gets two performances such as the ones delivered by Jackson and junior forward Cory Jefferson, it resembles a great team. The Bears scored the rout against the nation’s No. 4 team without getting a point from their bench. They didn’t need much beyond the 53 points Jackson and Jefferson combined for on 22-of-26 shooting, including 5-of-6 from three-point land. Jefferson came into

the day 0-for-7 for his career from three and made three of three three-point attempts Saturday. Asked if the coach had given him the green light to shoot them, Jefferson said he did, at which point Jackson’s eyes bugged out of his head. “Coach gave him the green light after he made the second one,” Jackson said. Jackson had little trouble getting around KU’s guards on his way to 28

points, 10 assists, six rebounds and two steals in 38 minutes. Jefferson had 25 points, seven rebounds and three blocked shots. The Bears shot .577 overall and hit half their three-point attempts and played inspired basketball at both ends. “Let’s face it, when the ball goes in, it makes everybody play better on the defensive end,” Drew said. “When you make shots, it’s a big difference.”

BAYLOR’S CORY JEFFERSON (34) LAUNCHES A SHOT over KU’s Jeff Withey (5). Chances are good it went in: Jefferson was 11-for-13 in a 81-58 victory Saturday in Waco, Texas.

play harder (knowing a win would give KU the undisputed crown). “We were talking in the locker room beforehand. Maybe we thought it was ours already. Baylor didn’t (and) beat us up,” Withey added. The Bears handed the Jayhawks their secondworst loss in the 10-year Bill Self era. Texas beat KU by 25 points (80-55) on Feb. 25, 2006, in Austin, Texas. “I went in and told my team, ‘Hey, bad job, but congratulations,’ one of those deals,” Self said. “I’m happy we got a ninth. I will never apologize for winning a league championship. It’s not entirely the way we scripted it, which is obvious.” BU’s Cory Jefferson, who had never hit a three in his career, went 3-for3 from three and scored 25 points with seven rebounds and three blocks. Guard Pierre Jackson hit 11 of 13 shots, good for 28 points with 10 assists and six rebounds. He was four boards shy of a triple-double. “They were terrific. They totally dominated the game,” Self said. Did Self think Jefferson could shoot that well? “Hell no,” Self said with a laugh. Self said he didn’t think the Jayhawks relaxed just because they knew they’d claim at least a tie for the league title no matter what happened against Baylor. “I would think it’d play to our favor,” Self said. “I’d like to blame it on that.

KU’S PERRY ELLIS (34) SPLITS defenders for a layup. I can’t blame it on that. We have played with our backs to the wall (since three-game losing streak). We had the golden opportunity and didn’t jump through the hoop. “If K-State would have won today, this would have been the pressure of an NCAA Tournament game. You’d have to win to get a piece of it. It would have put us in a one-and-done mind-set. We didn’t have that as much. It seems to me it’d be easier to play. “I’m not Joe Lunardi (of bracketology fame) ... Baylor needed this game. They got it. They deserve to be in the tournament. I think this will put them in the field.” KU, which was led by Ben McLemore’s 23 points, actually had a chance to win this one down the stretch. The Jayhawks cut a 17-point deficit to six (61-55 at 6:21), courtesy of an 11-0 run (Perry Ellis six points, McLemore five). But BU dominated the rest of the game, finishing with 20 points to KU’s three. “When we cut it to six, I still thought we were still climbing a pretty steep

hill,” Self said. “We were in the game, we just had to get stops. Isaiah Austin made a great left-handed hook shot (to start gameending run). It was a pro move. We gave them four points right after that with our offense. We had a chance to get back in it multiple times and didn’t take advantage. They made plays. They had two players play about as well as any two have played against us in a long time on the same team.” Asked what happened after KU cut it to six, Withey noted: “Every time we did something good, they did something better. It’s all defense.” BU hit 57.7 percent of its shots to KU’s 37.5 percent. “I’m not happy,” Self said. “I’m a lot happier than I would be if it was different and we finished second. Now we have a chance to go to Kansas City (for Big 12 Tournament) and see who the best team is basically.” KU, as the No. 1 seed in the Big 12 Tournament, will play at 2 p.m. Thursday against the winner of Wednesday’s game between Texas Tech and West Virginia.

GARY BEDORE’S KU HOOPS NOTEBOOK

KANSAS’ BEN MCLEMORE SLAMS FOR TWO OF HIS TEAM-HIGH 23 POINTS in the Jayhawks’ 81-58 loss to Baylor on Saturday in Waco, Texas.

KU SCHEDULE

Keegan CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1B

strike you as one capable of winning 17 games in a row? No? Not helping? OK, consider then that every team gets really unlucky once in a while and runs into a player who for the first time in his life shoots as he never had before in a game. Six seasons ago, Marchello Vealy made seven of eight three-pointers to lead Oral Roberts to an earlyseason upset of Kansas in Allen Fieldhouse. Vealy had made one of 13 threes the previous season. Cory Jefferson, one of those long leapers who loves to power dunk that Baylor always seems to have, had attempted seven three-pointers in his career before Saturday and missed them all. He shot three in this rout and made them all on the way to matching his career high with 25 points. The odds of something like that happening to Kansas again this month are astronomical, so it’s good the Jayhawks got that bad-luck bite out of their systems. None of that worked, did it? OK, how about trying the truth, which is where Kansas coach Bill Self will go with his players, with whom he clinched a share of his ninth consecutive Big 12 title Saturday because Kansas State lost at Oklahoma State. The truth is for Kansas to have any shot of making it to Atlanta for the Final Four it must play with a sharp edge, an in-yourface competitive spirit. That was nowhere to be found Saturday, except from the opposition. It was clear which team was in single-elimination mode and which had clinched something earlier in the day. Thrashing Kansas the way it did drove Baylor from a seat on the wrong side of the NCAA Tournament bubble to the right side. In recent seasons, Baylor has resembled NBA teams in more ways than having high-leaping long bodies all over the place. The

BAYLOR’S PIERRE JACKSON (55) PICKS UP A STEAL and advances it up-court as he’s trailed by KU’s Jeff Withey. Bears (18-13, 9-9) tend to play with an NBA regularseason jog during conference play and pump it up to another speed in the postseason and twice have advanced to the Elite Eight under Scott Drew. When locked in and turned up, Kansas can look fast, quick, explosive and anchored by a beast of a shot-blocking defender. When he’s tuned in, senior power forward Kevin Young disrupts opponents with hustle and explosiveness and spurs teammates to greater heights. When he’s at less than his best, such as Saturday, he looks too frail to play with the heavyweights, too unskilled to merit playing time. Point guards Elijah Johnson and Naadir Tharpe had been playing so well until Saturday. One game does not a regression make, but it served as a reminder of just how ordinary Kansas can look without the point guards collapsing the defense. KU’s seven-game win-

ning streak ended. The streak started after a three-game losing streak that started with a homecourt loss to Oklahoma State. How tough will it be for the team to put this one behind it and start anew? “I don’t know, because I thought when we lost to Oklahoma State I thought we’d react fine, and we didn’t react very well to that,” Self said. “I may take a little different approach this time. I’m not sure what yet. The bottom line is, our second season is done. Everybody’s is done. Now the third season starts, and everybody’s starting fresh. I can’t imagine we won’t be fresh and excited and confident moving forward.” He also put it this way: “We got punched in the mouth today without question, but we’ll get up.” If hearing a coach who has won nine consecutive Big 12 titles say that doesn’t make you feel bet- KU’S ELIJAH JOHNSON (15) LAYS IN A BASKET in front of Baylor’s Rico Gathers. ter, I’m out of ideas.

Not much to say Kansas University senior point guard Elijah Johnson was a man of precious few words after Saturday’s 8158 loss to Baylor in Ferrell Center. “Went brain-dead,” is how he described what took place after KU cut a 17-point deficit to six during crunch time, only to have the Bears outscore KU, 20-3, the rest of the way en route a 23-point victory. “Unexpected. Not Pierre, unexpected from Jefferson,” Johnson added of the explosive scoring of forward Cory Jefferson, who had 25 points off 11of-13 shooting. Point guard Pierre Jackson, the Big 12’s leading scorer, had 28 also off 11-of-13 marksmanship. Johnson merely shook his head from side to side as his response to three other questions from media members after his Jayhawks fell to 26-5 overall, 14-4 in league play. Obviously, he and the Jayhawks were not happy campers as they exited Ferrell Center, despite winning a piece of the Big 12 title (with Kansas State). “I mean, it was pretty quiet (in locker room),” said freshman Perry Ellis, who scored 12 points off 5-of-7 shooting. “There’s nothing we can do now. We’ve got to go to the Big 12 tournament and just play.” Ellis said he “was trying to be aggressive and help my team,” when he entered early for Kevin Young, who picked up two quick fouls. Ellis played 22 minutes, Young 15. Wooden finalists KU’s Ben McLemore and Jeff Withey have been named two of 15 finalists for the 2013 John R. Wooden Award, the Los Angeles Athletic Club announced on ESPN College GameDay Saturday. Other finalists: Anthony Bennett, UNLV; Trey Burke, Michigan; Erick Green, Virginia Tech; Shane Larkin, Miami (Fla.); Doug McDermott, Creighton; Victor Oladipo, Indiana; Kelly Olynyk, Gonzaga; Mason Plumlee, Duke; Otto Porter, Georgetown; Marcus Smart, Oklahoma State; Deshaun Thomas, Ohio State; Nate Wolters, South Dakota State; Cody Zeller, Indiana.

BIG 12 WOMEN’S ROUNDUP

No. 1 Baylor stomps KSU coming from the Kansas State bench was a loud countdown each time the shot clock was about to expire. When those possessions didn’t end in violations, the Wildcats were throwing up wild shots that had little chance to go in.

“I bet if you went and watched it, it wasn’t an offensive foul. So, that changed the game, the momentum a lot,” Weber said. “But then they made plays and we didn’t.” McGruder led the Wildcats with 22 points. He had a big game when the teams met in the Big 12 opener, scoring 28 points and making all five of his three-point attempts to lead K-State to a victory. He couldn’t match that this time, connecting on only six of his 15 shots. Thomas Gipson chipped in 15 points and Angel Rodriguez scored 10, but also struggled to a 3-for-16 outing. “They’ve got some pretty good athletes that can guard and defend, and they made their focus — there’s no doubt — to make sure that Rod and Angel were jammed up as much as possible,” Weber said. The Wildcats allowed Oklahoma State to shoot 57 percent while making just 39 percent of their own shots, but still managed to hang in until the final minutes for a chance to stretch their winning streak to seven and — more importantly — win an elusive conference title. “It’s been fun. It’s been a blast,” Weber said. “I just hope, for their sake there’s some more good things to come.” After McGruder’s three-point play and Rodriguez’s charge, Kansas State missed eight straight attempts. Smart said there had been some build-up to the call, with referees warning both Smart and Rodriguez to stop pushing off. “At that moment in time, he gave me a little nudge that was enough for the referee to blow his whistle,” Smart said. “Actually, I wasn’t trying to fall. I actually slipped and it just looked like I fell, like I tried to make it a flop. But I actually slipped. It was a nudge but it wasn’t enough to make me fall.” The Wildcats will be the No. 2 seed in next week’s Big 12 tournament. Oklahoma State will be the third seed and face Baylor in the opening round.

No. 13 Oklahoma St. 76, No. 9 Kansas State 70 STILLWATER, OKLA. — Coach Travis Ford can’t be certain whether NBA prospect Marcus Smart has played his last home game at Oklahoma State. If he did, he went out with one of his typical beyond-the-box-score plays, changing the game and the Big 12 championship picture. Smart scored 21 points, but perhaps none of his plays was as big as the charging foul he drew that turned the momentum as the Cowboys beat Kansas State on Saturday. After officials had stopped the game to review a Smart jump shot and rule that it was not a three-pointer but a two, he got between Angel Rodriguez and the sideline and drew the foul as Rodriguez tried to catch an inbound pass. Smart ended up with six points — plus drawing Rodriguez’s foul — during the decisive 14-1 run for the Cowboys (23-7, 13-5 Big 12). “The momentum changed for us, and we opened the game up,” Smart said. Smart’s heady play came as no surprise to Ford, who has seen his freshman point guard develop into a Big 12 player of the year candidate without needing to be his team’s leading scorer. “He is going to be in the middle of the action and more times than not, he’s going to make a positive play. ... That’s just his game,” Ford said. “That’s just his nature. That’s the way he plays.” Le’Bryan Nash contributed 24 points, and Markel Brown scored 16, including seven free throws in the final two minutes for Oklahoma State. The Wildcats (25-6, 144), who came into the day tied with rival Kansas for the conference lead, still ended up sharing their first regular-season conference title since 1977 in the Big Eight when the fourth-ranked Jayhawks lost at Baylor later Saturday.

No. 1 Baylor 80, Kansas State 47 DALLAS — Brittney Griner had 19 points, 13 rebounds and a career-best nine assists, and Baylor built a quick 25-point lead in a victory against Kansas State in the quarterfinals of the Big 12 women’s tournament Saturday. Griner’s effort came five days after she scored a Big 12-record 50 points in a win over the Wildcats in her final regular season home game. Kansas State (15-17) was within three points well into the second half of last weekend’s loss in Waco, but this time the Wildcats were down 21-3 just seven minutes in when coach Deb Patterson called her third timeout. Destiny Williams had 20 points to lead the Lady Bears (30-1), who clinched their third straight season with at least 30 wins. Brittany Chambers led Kansas State with 21 points. Patterson ended up using all four 30-second timeouts in the first 11 minutes, the last when Odyssey Sims hit a short jumper after a turnover for a 31-6 lead. All of Chambers’ points came in the second half with the outcome already decided. The Wildcats’ leading scorer was 0-of-6 from the field before halftime. The Wildcats didn’t have a two-point basket before halftime, when Baylor led 45-18 after outscoring Kansas State 30-0 in the paint. Kansas State had five three-pointers while going 0-of-9 from inside the arc in the first half. The Wildcats shot 29 percent for the game, and 12 of their 16 baskets were from long range. The Lady Bears repeatedly got easy buckets inside and out while shooting 68 percent in the first half and 58 for the game. When Griner wasn’t scoring herself, she was finding Williams and

Five Baylor players scored at least eight, and Griner had almost as many assists (seven) as points (eight) before halftime, even though coach Kim Mulkey at one point implored her to “score first, pass second.” Kansas State tried to challenge Griner a few times early, but that just meant she had three blocks over a three-minute stretch. The Wildcats finally got their first twopoint basket on a layup by Brittany Chambers with 16 minutes left in the game. Sims limped around for part of the first half, eventually leaving the game and taking off her left shoe on the bench. She returned a few minutes later and was the third double-figure scorer with 10 points. She also had seven assists. The Wildcats had two shot-clock violations in the first six minutes, including one after Griner emphatically stuffed a layup attempt on a drive by Chambers. About the only noise

Oklahoma State 59, Texas Tech 54 Kendra Suttles scored 16 points and Toni Young had 11 points and 18 rebounds to lead Oklahoma State past Texas Tech in the Big 12 women’s tournament quarterfinals. The Lady Raiders, who beat the Cowgirls twice during the regular season, pulled within a point three times in the last 3 1/2 minutes but committed a turnover with the only chance they had to take the lead. Young put Oklahoma State (21-9) up 55-52 with 38 seconds left when she was fouled after an offensive rebound and made both free throws. Liz Donohoe scored 13, putting the Cowgirls ahead for good on a 3-pointer late in the first half and icing the win with four free throws in the last 21 seconds. Brittney Martin had 14 points and a game-high seven steals. Kelsi Baker led Texas Tech (21-10) with 17 points and a season-high 14 rebounds. Oklahoma 65, West Virginia 64 Sharane Campbell drained a go-ahead free throw with five seconds remaining as Oklahoma came back from a 22-point second-half deficit to beat West Virginia in the Big 12 tournament quarterfinals. Campbell was fouled on a layup attempt by Crystal Leary and made noe of two shots. Bria Holmes got off an unsuccessful threepoint attempt at the buzzer for the Mountaineers. Nicole Griffin had 16 points, Campbell 15 and Aaryn Ellenberg 12 for the third-seeded Sooners (229), who play No. 2 Iowa State in today’s semifinals.

Buss made right call on Kobe By Bill Plaschke Los Angeles Times

LOS ANGELES — It was the summer of 2004, and an aging sports owner was faced with a decision for the ages. It was a choice between two small words with giant ramifications. It was a hurried selection that would last forever. Kobe or Shaq? The debate had raged for years, and now Lakers owner Jerry Buss felt he had to end it. Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O’Neal, filled with blatant animosity stemming from the deepest of jealousies, could no longer play together. Even three championships couldn’t bond them and, at the first possible moment that summer, they both attempted to flee. O’Neal begged to be traded. Bryant opted out of his contract. Buss felt he couldn’t keep them both. He believed he had

COMMENTARY to pick one. This Hall of Famer or that Hall of Famer? This son, or that son? In today’s era of corporate ownership, it was the sort of personnel decision that is rarely made by a single person. Yet Buss alone made the call. It was one of the boldest calls in the history of Southern California sports. It became one of the most criticized calls in the history of the NBA. Yet Buss unflinchingly made it, and stood behind it, and, nine years later, on a Wednesday night in New Orleans, his choice could be seen storming downcourt for a clinching dunk and a gritted-teeth growl as the Lakers came from a 25-point deficit to win. Even those of us who have resisted saying it for years can say it now, because a man’s legacy has been completed by it.

Jerry Buss picked Kobe Bryant, and he was right. Jerry Buss traded O’Neal in what this columnist called a “Shaqtacular mistake,” yet Buss was right, and continues to be right, today more than ever, his mortality continually honored by a guy playing at the level of the immortals. The uniform patch is sweet, the memorial service was moving, but less than a month after Buss’ death, his memory is most alive every night through a scarred veteran whose 17th season might be his most impactful yet. Buss picked Bryant as if he knew that not only would he win two more championships with some of his best teams, but that he would shoulder the Lakers’ most disappointing team with dignity and strength through a season of uncertainty and loss. Bryant will not be the most valuable player. But in some ways he’s never

been better. He has furiously pushed the Lakers through their dysfunction and chaos while chugging his legs at a level never seen by someone burdened by so many miles. He has led them to a win while scoring 40 points and shooting 65 percent. He has led them to a win while making one basket and not taking a shot in the first half. He led them to three consecutive wins with double-digit assists in each game. There have been 18 games in which he did not miss a free throw. And, oh yeah, just for grins, Wednesday night in New Orleans, he scored 13 of the team’s final 16 points. It turns out, Jerry Buss didn’t unravel anything. He cemented it. He gave the franchise to a kid who has grown into a man who is carrying it brilliantly in his memory, a living last will and testament, an amazing grace.

Chiefs making bold moves By Dave Skretta Associated Press Sports Writer

KANSAS CITY, MO. — The new group in charge of the Kansas City Chiefs is going right to work, making bold moves to turn around a franchise that went 2-14 last season. They traded for a new quarterback in Alex Smith. They locked up two of their own in wide receiver Dwayne Bowe and punter Dustin Colquitt. They franchised left tackle Branden Albert and raised some eyebrows by releasing players once thought to be major freeagent signings. In doing so, new general manager John Dorsey and coach Andy Reid have put their fingerprints on a franchise that has had one winning season in the last six, hasn’t won a playoff game since 1993, and hasn’t been to the Super Bowl since winning it under Hank Stram in January 1970. They’ve also changed the culture of a franchise in a rut. “All along, I think from an organizational objective, we said we were going to create a plan, develop a plan, and these just happen to be the first details of the plan,” said Dorsey, a longtime Packers executive hired in January to replace the fired Scott Pioli. “We have some talented players on this roster,” Dorsey told The Associated Press this week. “We’ve been able to retain them, and it made sense from an organizational standpoint. This was the way we felt it made sense to move forward to the next phase of the plan.” That phase begins in earnest Tuesday with the start of the new league year. The Chiefs will finally

KANSAS CITY CHIEFS GENERAL MANAGER JOHN DORSEY, left, poses with head coach Andy Reid during a news conference announcing Dorsey’s hiring Jan. 14 in Kansas City, Mo. be able to announce their trade with San Francisco for Smith, whom Dorsey and Reid undoubtedly believe can shore up the quarterback position. They will also dive headlong into free agency, where they’ll attempt to fill several areas of need, and then finish their preparations for the April draft, where they have the No. 1 overall pick for the first time. There’s also a decision to be made about quarterback Matt Cassel, who is almost certain to be released with Smith coming on board, and perhaps a couple other veterans on the roster. It’s a busy time for Dorsey and Reid in the offices at One Arrowhead Drive, but the gregarious Dorsey laughs about the flurry of moves and points out, “It’s always a busy time.” “I mean, part of this movement was from a philosophical belief that

has been ingrained in me,” said Dorsey, who learned his trade under Packers executives Mike Holmgren and Ted Thompson. “Winning organizations do moves like this, and what that does is it makes players realize that these guys are true to their word,” Dorsey said. “If we play and do what we’re supposed to do, at the end of the day, they’re going to give us what our just due is.” In some ways, that viewpoint also was held by Pioli, his predecessor. In the past few years, the Chiefs have reached long-term deals with linebackers Tamba Hali and Derrick Johnson, running back Jamaal Charles, safety Eric Berry and cornerback Brandon Flowers. But the speed and conviction with which Dorsey and Reid retained Bowe, who signed a five-year, $56 million contract, and

Colquitt, whose five-year, $18.75 million deal makes him the NFL’s best-paid punter, sent a message that the Chiefs intend to be serious players in the market. “I’m very blessed to be a member of the Kansas City Chiefs,” said Bowe, who at times had clashed with the Chiefs’ previous regime. “I’m looking forward to working with John and coach Reid in the near future, (and) I’m excited to continue my career with the Chiefs.” The signing of Bowe and Colquitt allowed the Chiefs to use the franchise tag on Albert, one of the league’s premier offensive tackles. He’ll make $9.83 million if he plays under the tag this season, though Dorsey said negotiations on a long-term deal are ongoing. How did Kansas City pay for all these moves? It freed up some money by releasing wide re-

ceiver Steve Breaston and starting right tackle Eric Winston, and then restructured the contract of defensive end Tyson Jackson, who essentially agreed to a pay cut from $14.72 million to a base salary of $4.2 million this season. “Every organization would like to have a degree of flexibility,” Dorsey said. “Part of the thinking, the process, is to have the ability to give us options, so we can go into these different phases when the new league year starts ... and have the flexibility to do different things.” The overhaul of the Chiefs has certainly captured attention around the league, and raised questions, too: How did they do all that so quickly? And what are they going to do next? “Obviously, it was very important for them to start off quickly,” said former Chiefs coach Herm Edwards, now an NFL analyst for ESPN. “John’s a good football man, and he worked with Andy in Green Bay, so they were able to get on the same page pretty fast.” The maneuvering has caused quite a stir in Kansas City, where most years, fans have turned their attention to March Madness or the Kansas City Royals, with the Chiefs merely an afterthought. Shortly after Reid was hired, he arrived on a private plane at the city’s downtown airport, and helicopters from local TV stations tracked him driving to Arrowhead Stadium. Hundreds of reporters converged for introductory news conferences for him and Dorsey, and talk of the Chiefs — what they might do in the draft, or in free agency — has dominated sports talk radio.

Royals hammer Giants SCOTTSDALE, ARIZ. (AP) — Johnny Giavotella and Brett Hayes each drove in four runs, Yordano Ventura pitched three hitless innings, and the Kansas City Royals beat the San Francisco Giants, 13-2, Saturday. Billy Butler and David Lough each added three hits. The Royals finished with 20 hits, including nine in 12⁄3 innings against Giants starter Yusmeiro Petit. Brandon Belt hit his fourth homer for the Giants. Ventura, considered the Royals’ top pitching prospect, made his first start of the spring and fourth appearance overall. He got this chance when Wade Davis was scratched with shoulder soreness, and extended his hitless streak to five innings.

FROM LEFT, FRENCH HORN PLAYERS STEPHEN MEILLER AND MURIEL HAGUE, along with members of the Kansas University Wind Ensemble, rehearse “In the Shadow of No Towers,” an original symphony by composer Mohammed Fairouz reflecting the 9/11 attacks and their emotional and political aftermath, on Feb. 20 in Murphy Hall. The Wind Ensemble will be premiering the piece March 26 at Carnegie Hall in New York.

J

ust write something fast, flashy. Don’t get deep. We’ll pay you a lot of money. Composer Mohammed Fairouz says he turns down many such requests. “In the Shadow of No Towers” is nothing like those. It’s not an everyday selection for the Kansas University Wind Ensemble, either. In perhaps the biggest event KU’s School of Music has embarked on, the 69-member ensemble will be the first ever to play Fairouz’s large-scale work, a symphony reflecting the 9/11 attacks and their emotional and political aftermath. KU students will premiere the commission this month on one

of the world’s most famous stages: Carnegie Hall in New York City. Not only is it rare for a university group to play at Carnegie Hall, but it’s also exceptional for a composer of Fairouz’s profile to commission music for them. Fairouz, a New York City resident not yet 30 himself, is an Arab-American composer known for scores with geopolitical and philosophical themes. He’s only going to live once, he says, so he rarely takes on projects that aren’t big. He wants to spend his time writing multidimensional pieces that “matter.” Please see ENSEMBLE, page 3C

IF YOU GO Kansas University Wind Ensemble will premiere “In the Shadow of No Towers” at 8 p.m. (Eastern time) March 26 at Carnegie Hall in New York City. Tickets can be purchased online at carnegiehall. org or by calling 212-247-7800.

Concert: Caspian at the Jackpot Saloon The instrumental alt-rock band from Massachusetts will play at the Jackpot, 943 Massachusetts St., along with bands Sundiver and Native. The show starts at 9 p.m., and costs $7 for 18+ and $5 for 21+.

The ensemble will perform an encore concert at 7:30 p.m. April 2 at the Lied Center, 1600 Stewart Ave. Admission is free, but ticket reservations are required and can be made by calling 864-2787.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Ozâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; not great, but visuals are powerful

T

he new Disney movie â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oz the Great and Powerfulâ&#x20AC;? may be based on the works of L. Frank Baum, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an entirely new adventure scripted specifically for the big screen.

SCENE STEALERS

eric@scene-stealers.com Written by Hollywood schlockster Mitchell Kapner and touched up considerably by playwright David Lindsay-Abaire, the story is pretty standard stuff about a selfish man who learns to care about other people. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the energetic, loopy direction of Sam Raimi and the old-fashioned movie-star charm of Michelle Williams and Rachel Weisz that make this â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ozâ&#x20AC;? not quite great and sometimes powerful. Back in the 1980s, Raimi burst on the B-movie scene with the R-rated horror movie â&#x20AC;&#x153;Evil Deadâ&#x20AC;?

JAMES FRANCO, AS OZ, LEFT, AND THE CHARACTER FINLEY, VOICED BY ZACH BRAFF, are shown in a scene from â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oz the Great and Powerful,â&#x20AC;? now playing everywhere. and its superior sequel â&#x20AC;&#x153;Evil Dead 2,â&#x20AC;? in which he pioneered low-budget creativity by strapping cameras to homemade rigs that would travel over bumpy terrain and running the film at high speeds, among other things. He took his love for B-movies to the mainstream with the first â&#x20AC;&#x153;Spider-Manâ&#x20AC;? trilogy, and his camera movement was still a major attraction, giving us a birdâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s-eye view of Spidey as he swings all over New York. With those films, Raimi put the audience in the middle of the action,

OFF THE BEATEN PLATE

something he does many times during the familyfriendly, PG-rated â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oz the Great and Powerful.â&#x20AC;? Usually I decry the gimmicky use of 3-D in a movie, but in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oz,â&#x20AC;? Raimi has a way of celebrating 3-Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cheap thrills with child-like glee. As Kansas huckster Oscar Diggs (James Franco) goes over a waterfall, the audience is right there with him, feeling our stomachs drop. When shards of houses pierce the walls of his hot-air balloon in the middle of a tornado, our hands clutch the armrests. In addition to the roller-coaster-ride feeling,

Raimi instills a real sense of wonder and awe with his version of the Land of Oz, a multi-colored digital playground with some of the best visual effects youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re likely to see all year. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an impressive amount of 3-D depth to the landscapes and creative use of the filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dual aspect ratio in tandem with stereoscopic vision. Last week I celebrated the work of the artists who created the detailed CGI giants from the otherwise mundane â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jack the Giant Slayer,â&#x20AC;? but the fully realized porcelain girl from â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ozâ&#x20AC;? is a whole different kind of amazing. Wow.

On the flip side of the coin, there are the performances of Franco and Mila Kunis. Since â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ozâ&#x20AC;? is functioning on a mythical fairy-tale level, there is a certain amount of otherworldliness and bigness that actors must bring to their roles to fit in with the larger-than-life setting. Franco basically plays James Franco, 21st century actor and movie star, rather than actually embodying the character of Diggs. He grows into the part a little by the end, but his modern, laidback take on the material is at odds with the earnest tone of the film.

Kunis is perfectly cast as a doe-eyed innocent with perfect skin, but once the role requires her to stretch, she really isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t up to the task. Williams, however, plays the witch Glinda as if the role were written for her. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all sincerity and motherly instincts, wrapping those around her in a warm glow. And yes, this is accomplished by Williams herself, all without the help of visual effects, Weisz is also playing an archetype, but she adds a surprising amount of depth to her underwritten role as one of the scriptâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s many witches. Overall, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oz the Great and Powerfulâ&#x20AC;? has the â&#x20AC;&#x153;wowâ&#x20AC;? factor that big Hollywood event movies demand. Raimi was the right person to elevate some pretty standard material, though Franco and Kunis may not have been the right people for the job.

St. Paddyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day on parade

T

hose of us in the workforce donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really get to experience Spring Break with the same hedonistic fervor as college students, but the combination of St. Patrickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day and the Big 12 basketball tournament gives even the most buttoned-down visitor to Kansas City a great excuse to kick back and do a little day drinking.

Holiday: St. Patrickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day events If imbibing until youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re green is less a priority than showing the family a good time, take advantage of the holiday falling on a Sunday to see the 41st annual Kansas City St. Patrickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day Parade, a bona fide big city event where the streets overflow with people, parade floats and lots of free candy. The parade starts at Broadway and Linwood (33rd) Streets in Midtown Kansas City and winds its way to Westport, which by that point in the day will have already reached a fever pitch. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parade theme is â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gathering of the Clans,â&#x20AC;? and whether youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got any Irish blood or not, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll feel welcome amid the diverse group of people the event brings out each year. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been several times, and the ridiculous costumes, men on stilts, boisterous floats and drum lines (especially the Marching Cobras) never disappoint. For a full list of parking locations, parade floats and vendors, visit kcirishparade.com. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re planning to attend Lawrenceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parade instead, you can still catch a parade in Kansas City the day before. The Snake Saturday parade in North Kansas City, now in its 30th year, is a slightly more family-friendly affair that includes attractions like pony rides, a car show and an Irish festival. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Irish Roots and Cowboy Bootsâ&#x20AC;? is this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s theme, and the event lasts from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Visit snakesaturday.com for more details. Parades aside, St. Patrickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day in Kansas City is basically a party anywhere you choose to find it. As the parade destination and the regionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s oldest bar district, Westport is the natural choice to celebrate. Kellyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Westport Inn (500 Westport Road), which opens Sunday at 10 a.m., and nearby Harlingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Upstairs (3941 Main) are the traditional hotspots. My recommendation is the classier Californos (4124 Pennsylvania, californos.com), where visitors can enjoy a brunch buffet of corned beef, cabbage and cake ($14 for adults, $7 for kids under 12). Californos will be featuring live

music all day on the patio, with the wonderful, rabblerousing KC Bear Fighters kicking things off at 11:30 a.m. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a $3 cover for bands. Final word of advice on St. Patrickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day: Things can get fairly raucous, so be sure to know your limits, designate a sober driver and look out for each other. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d recommend getting started early and heading home shortly after the parade, as green beer tends to operate under a law of diminishing returns after a certain pint.

Sports: Big 12 tournament As Jayhawk hoops fans are surely aware, this week is the 2013 Big 12 Menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Basketball Tournament, held at the Sprint Center and encompassing most of downtown Kansas City. Tickets are a pretty penny, ranging from $195 to $330 (not including fees) for all-session tickets. But as teams drop out, there will be chances to buy tickets on the street, so bring cash and a willingness to haggle. If you go, look for the Jayhawks to take the court wearing their new, um, more colorful camo uniforms. Even if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t plan on entering the Sprint Center, the big-game atmosphere is present throughout the Power & Light District, with charter buses clogging the streets, hot dog vendors on every block, and fans of all 10 teams out in full force. The giant screen in the KC Live! courtyard (the P&L district epicenter) broadcasts every game, providing a communal watch party the length of a city block. You must be 21 or over to enter. The whole family can take part in the Big 12 Phillips 66 Street Festival, which includes outdoor basketball games, shooting contests, a car display, and other activities all along Grand Boulevard outside the Sprint Center. Visit big12sports.com for more info on the Street Festival and the tournament itself. Sports: Sporting KC If all that isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enough excitement, Saturday is the home opener for the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s soccer superheroes, Sporting KC, who take on rivals the Chicago Fire at 2 p.m. at Sporting Park (near the Kansas Speedway). For ticket information, visit sportingkc.com/tickets. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Lucas Wetzel grew up in Westwood, graduated from KU in 2004, and has since worked as a freelance writer, editor and language trainer in Leipzig, Germany, and Kansas City, Mo.

New Mohsin Hamid novel follows Asian slum kid

By Marion Winik

AP File Photo

AUTHOR MOHSIN HAMID, pictured during an interview April 21, 2007, in New York, has just come out with his third novel, “How to Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia.” ing Asia” is pure Hamid. After spending part of his childhood in California, the author studied at Princeton and Harvard and worked in finance in New York and London before returning to live in Lahore, Pakistan. He seems to know the worst and best of both cultures, and his storytelling style is both timeless and contemporary, a postmodern Scheherazade. The entire book is addressed to a “you” whom we meet “huddled, shivering, on the packed earth under your mother’s cot one cold, dewy morning. ... The whites of your eye are yellow, a consequence of spiking bilirubin levels in your blood. The virus afflicting you is called hepatitis E. Its typical mode of transmission is fecal-oral. Yum. It kills only about one in 50, so you’re likely to recover. But right now you feel like you’re going to die.” The voice shifts flu-

ently between close-up tracking of this character and his friend “the pretty girl” and a grander philosophical meditation. In each chapter, the notion of self-help and the project of reading and writing are re-evaluated. “It’s in being read that a book becomes a book, and in each of a million different readings becomes one of a million different books, just as an egg becomes one of potentially a million different people when it’s approached by a hard-swimming and frisky school of sperm.” The sharp-eyed storyteller follows our young friend as he struggles through his childhood and adolescence, taking in what education there is to be had, working his way up from bicycle delivery of pirated DVDs to the selling of expired canned goods to his first entrepreneurial venture: the bottling of lightly sterilized water posing as eau minerale. This business — thriving due to the contaminated water system that caused his hepatitis — is the rickety car in which he ascends

the roller coaster track of the South Asian economy. Meanwhile, the pretty girl is on her own journey, seen on billboards and in tabloids, then on television hosting a cooking show. Their paths crisscross and, ultimately, converge. This novel is smart about many things, including medicine and the processes of death, but is smartest of all about literature itself. “We are all refugees from our childhoods,” the narrator informs us. “And so we turn, among other things, to stories. ... Writers and readers seek a solution to the problem that time passes, that those who have gone are gone and those who will go, which is to say every one of us, will go. For there was a moment when anything is possible. And there will be a moment when nothing is possible. But in between, we can create.” According to Hamid, a novel is co-created by the writer and the reader. Three novels in, I really enjoy working with him and spending time in his world.

BEST-SELLERS

Behind his choleric countenance, chair-hurling antics and disturbing incidents of laying hands on people in anger, Bob Knight clearly knows something about coaching college basketball. He won more than 900 games at Army, Indiana and Texas Tech, often defeating opponents with superior athletic talent. In “The Power of Negative Thinking,” Knight and co-author Bob Hammel outline the coach’s approach to preparation and strategy, which they cast, with both humor and a touch of hyperbole, as the opposite of Norman Vincent Peale’s. It’s a book about the virtues of knowing one’s weaknesses and working hard to counteract or minimize them, of not merely giving lip service to avoiding overconfidence, of caution, patience and self-scouting. Knight insists he’s not a strict negativist or a person with a sour outlook. “I’m saying that being alert to the possible negatives in any situation is the very best way to bring about positive results.” “Victory favors the team making the fewest mistakes,” Knight posted in his locker rooms, and his book suggests he followed that game plan assiduously. “The coach who recognizes the possibility — maybe even in specific cases the probability — of losing is going to work a lot harder,” Knight writes. His favorite example of that situation isn’t from a basketball court, but from the ballot box. Incumbent Harry Truman was the acknowledged underdog against Thomas Dewey in the 1948 presidential election, which also included two thirdparty candidates. While the overconfident Dewey relaxed, playing it safe to avoid blowing the election, Truman, filled with urgency about his possible defeat, hammered away

THEN-INDIANA COACH BOB KNIGHT, left, jokes with then-Kansas University coach Roy Williams before the NCAA Midwest Regional Championship game March 27, 1993, in St. Louis. Knight is the co-author of “The Power of Negative Thinking.” at his opponent. Despite that famous incorrect Chicago Tribune headline, Truman defeated the favorite. Knight applies his skeptical approach to sports-world clichés as well, with refreshing results. “Somebody will win, somebody will lose, but don’t ever tell me the difference every time is that the winner wanted to win more than the loser did,” he writes. Duke didn’t beat Butler in the NCAA championship game because Duke’s players wanted victory a little more. “Duke that night did just a little bit more. Or, in my terms, they made fewer mistakes

and played within their disciplined training to take home the championship.” The former Army coach cites the legendary Chinese strategist Sun Tzu’s statement that “A military operation involves deception” as part of his game preparation: “In sports, we improve almost every offensive move we make by setting it up with a false move first, a fake, or a reverse. As coaches, as leaders, we achieve that deception by saying over and over again on the practice floor, No, we can’t make that kind of a move without a fake first.” Wisconsin readers may groan that Knight gives former St. Louis Cardinals manager Tony LaRussa props here. But they’ll enjoy several shoutouts to Vince Lombardi and be pleased to read that Knight tapped Green Bay Packers great Willie Davis to give a short, blunt pep talk to his U.S. Olympic hoops team in 1984. He also punctures statements by athletes that would have you believe God is on their side. “Bringing God into expectations, particularly into competition where one person’s victory is another person’s defeat, seems to me to be crossing a do-unto-others line. ... I look around and see tragic things happening every day in the world and think He has . . . better things to do than dabble in sports and play favorites.” “I did have a player who made the sign of the cross before every free throw,” Knight writes. “I told him to quit it — not because the act offended me; he was a lousy shooter and I told him he was giving the church a bad name.”

Ruby Slippers improbable.com says that the state of Kansas is flatter than a pancake. An in-between space to underrate, it carries an image hard to shake. So pass on through, if you desire, roads that come in, surely go out. As for me, I have all I require. For I would be sorely sad without this place where kin and creatures thrive in open vistas and lustrous sky, where common people work and strive, where over rainbows bluebirds fly. In this land of loam and brome is where you’ll find me, at home. — Marilyn Page, Lecompton

NEW YORK — It appears the Force is still strong with Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher. In an interview posted online Thursday, George Lucas said the trio from the original “Star Wars” trilogy will reprise their iconic roles of Han Solo, Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia in the new “Star Wars” film. Lucas told Bloomberg Businessweek that all three were signed for the new “Episode VII” film in advance of Lucasfilm’s $4 billion purchase by Disney. “We had already signed Mark and Carrie and Harrison — or were pretty much in the final stages of negotiation,” Lucas said. He added: “Maybe I’m not supposed to say that. I think they want to announce that with some big whoop-de-do.” In an interview posted Wednesday with Florida’s Palm Beach Illustrated,

Fisher said that she’ll be coming back as Princess Leia. Disney’s Lucasfilm was coy in response. In a statement, a spokesperson for the company said, “George couldn’t say whether they were signed or not and neither can we. As Yoda said, ‘Always in motion is the future.’ Stay tuned.” The Walt Disney Co. is producing a new “Star Wars” trilogy to take place after Lucas’ original three space epics. J.J. Abrams is directing the first film. The 70-year-old Ford, the 61-year-old Hamill and the 56-year-old Fisher are expected to play smaller, supporting roles.

The Goldenberg Duo will present a free recital at noon Friday in the Central Court at the Spencer Museum of Art, 1301 Mississippi St. The brother-sister duo features Susan, a violinist with the Kansas City Symphony, and William, a distinguished professor of piano at Northern Illinois University. They plan to perform works by Edvard Grieg and Beethoven as well as Chinese folk songs and klezmer music. The backdrop for their performance will be “An Errant Line: Ann Hamilton/ Cynthia Schira,” a new art installation combining textiles and digital art.

Pi Day-themed events planned Expect a celebration of math, science, pastry and nerd pride at the Alferd Packer Memorial String Band’s annual Pi Day variety show, set for 7 p.m. Thursday at the Lawrence Arts Center, 940 New Hampshire St. The fast-paced show will feature music, dance, standup comedy, film and feats, including a pi recitation contest where the highest number of memorized pi digits wins. Also planned is a pie-baking contest, with pies judged in flavor and creativity — though a pie that’s actually irrational and infinite would trump other categories. Admission is $10 for adults, or $5 for students and seniors. Advance tickets are available through the Arts Center box office, 843-2787.

Material for trash bin exhibit sought The Percolator Artspace is looking for community members with photos, objects and experiences to share from the Social Service League’s alleyway trash bin. The bin at 905 Rhode Island St. has evolved into a circular micro-economy and a gathering place for both the comfortable and the down-on-their-luck. It’s known as a prime spot to forage for interesting or useful things — and also a haven for leaving things someone else might want or need. In a project he’s calling “Give Take Give,” Lawrence artist David Loewenstein is documenting the phenomenon. The Percolator, located next door to the thrift store at 913 Rhode Island St., is planning a related exhibition, book and series of events that will kick off in April. Submissions for the show can be made to Loewenstein via dloewenstein@hotmail. com or dropped off at the Percolator, open from noon to 6 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays, through April 21. For more information, visit the “Give Take Give” blog at givetakegive. blogspot.com.

Wife cannot love husband after his affair Dear Annie: I am unable to develop feelings of love for my husband of eight years. In fact, deep inside, I despise him. This is my second marriage, his fourth. In our early years together, I began to notice obvious signs of his having an intimate relationship with another woman. He always denied this vehemently and became angry with me for even saying such a thing. But the evidence I’ve accumulated is enough proof for me. I even saw this woman multiple times, and the looks she gave me were of the “cat that ate the canary” variety. My husband has no idea that I have evidence, although I am now positive that he has stopped seeing this woman. My problem is that my heart has a layer of cement around it because he has insulted and disrespected my intelligence by continuing

to lie about it. I cannot trust someone who is unable to be truthful. If my husband would only come forward and admit his guilt, as hard as it would be, I would be able to go through the process of forgiving this betrayal. But he is unwilling. It saddens me that he is still robbing us both of a better marriage. Any advice? — Heart of Stone Dear Heart of Stone: Your heart isn’t cement. You care a great deal and are trying to protect yourself from the pain of

Shields enlists in ‘Army Wives’ More than 30 years in the public eye, Brooke Shields joins the cast of the cable drama “Army Wives” (8 p.m. Sunday, Lifetime) as the popular series enters its seventh season. Over the years, she’s transformed from the precocious child model and actress (“Pretty Baby”) to television star (“Suddenly Susan”), while maintaining a good deal of public affection. Shields, who has recently played a not-so-nice neighbor on “The Middle,” joins “Army Wives” as Air Force Col. Katherine “Kat” Young, a strong-willed woman who flies C-17 transport planes and plays second fiddle to no man. Needless to say, she raises eyebrows the second she touches down on the base. O The miniseries “The Bible” (7 p.m. Sunday, History) covers stories in the Old Testament, from Joshua and the battle of Jericho to the construction of Solomon’s Temple. Not unexpectedly, this series attracted a very healthy cable audience last Sunday. History Channel’s “Vikings” (9 p.m. Sunday) was also a success. Tonight, Ragnar (Travis Fimmel) and his ragtag gang venture into dark and mysterious waters and chance upon a land of deep faith and rich plunder.

Sunday’s other highlights O Scheduled on “60 Minutes” (6 p.m., CBS): tainted injections linked to meningitis; Barcelona’s unfinished cathedral; Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg. O Flanders’ beatnik parents prefer Homer on “The Simpsons” (7 p.m., Fox). O Dark magic on “Once Upon a Time” (7 p.m., ABC). O The devil you know on “The Good Wife” (8 p.m., CBS). O A business trip to Orlando on “All-Star Celebrity Apprentice” (8 p.m., NBC). O Hannah feels editorial pressure on “Girls” (8 p.m., HBO). O Details change at the last moment on “Red Widow” (9 p.m., ABC). O “Loiter Squad” enters its second season on “Adult Swim” (11 p.m., Cartoon Network).

If you have proof, show him. Tell him you are willing to forgive if he comes clean, and that not discussing it honestly could destroy your relationship. If this still doesn’t help you find the reassurance you need, please consider counseling, with or without him.

phone rang again, she did the same thing. I think funeral homes or anywhere such a service is held should post signs telling attendees to turn off their cellphones during visitation hours and for the duration of the service. If someone cannot do this, they should not come.
