City takes step toward committing to rec center

Dreaming of America

‘I like the freedom, people able to do whatever they want.’

By Chad Lawhorn

Tayler Tolefree, a middle blocker on Kansas University’s nationally ranked volleyball team, grew up playing the sport in Topeka. The problem is, she told Lawrence city commissioners Tuesday night, she grew up in Lawrence. City commissioners at their weekly meeting took their biggest step yet toward committing to a $25 million city recreation center/ youth fieldhouse in northwest Lawrence after about 35 KU student-athletes and a host of other community members told stories of how the comCITY munity’s indoor recreation COMMISSION spaces were sorely lacking. “I really became excited when I heard about this project,” Tolefree said, “because I know it can represent the heart of sports activity in Lawrence.” A majority of Lawrence city commissioners also agreed the project may end up representing something else: a great deal.

Agafonov will get his wish, but given the bureaucratic hurdles he has to get over, he knows there is no guarantee that he’ll achieve his American dream. “There are so many people willing to help me here, but sometimes it’s tough,” Agafonov said in a recent interview over lunch in Lawrence during a visit to Kansas. “It’s complicated, going through these procedures.”

Not loving the U.S. right now, thousands want to leave it By Scott Rothschild

Now that the election is over, apparently a lot of people, including some in Kansas, want to secede from the United States. As of Tuesday evening, nearly 4,600 people had signed a petition urging that the state of Kansas withdraw from the United States and create its own government.

The online secession petitions, which number about 20 so far, were prompted by the re-election of President Barack Obama. The petitions appear on a White House website called “We the People,” which the administration uses to hear from people on what policies they would like to see. If a petition gets 25,000 signatures within a month, the White House staff will

review the issue. Legally, the U.S. Constitution doesn’t allow states to secede. The Texas petition had reached more than 70,000 signatures, but Texas Gov. Rick Perry said he doesn’t support the petition. In Kansas, Senate Minority Leader Anthony Hensley, D-Topeka, joked that maybe the petition started after Gov. Sam Brownback

refused to join the federal government to put together a health insurance exchange under the Affordable Care Act. House Minority Leader Paul Davis, D-Lawrence, said he didn’t think much of the petitions. “I think we settled this issue back in the early 1860s. I don’t think anyone in their right mind wants to have a secession debate,” Davis said.

WESTWOOD — Kansas University Hospital’s continuing growth was on display with the release of its most recent annual financial numbers Tuesday. The hospital’s total revenue grew by 22.2 percent during the 2012 fiscal year, eclipsing $1 billion for the first time. Also during the fiscal year, the hospital’s capital expenditures totaled $117.1 million, a decrease of about $24 million from the year before but still a marked increase over previous years’ totals. The fiscal year ran from Page July 2011 to June 2012. The hospital announced figures for the year as the KU Hospital Authority board of directors met Tuesday. The hospital’s revenue, which reached $1.06 billion, was bolstered by its merger with the Kansas City Cancer Center, which was completed in June 2011. Bob Page, the hospital’s president and CEO, said its ever-growing revenue has also been helped by the broader base of patients Please see HOSPITAL, page 7A

Burial will follow at Pioneer Cemetery. Dr. Ralston died on November 7, 2012, at Pioneer Ridge. He was born in Columbia, Missouri, on December 18, 1930, to Lawrence T. and Minnie S. Ralston. In 1944 the family moved to Kansas City, Missouri, where he graduated from Southwest High School in 1948. He earned an Associate Degree from Kansas City, Kansas, Junior College in 1950 and a Bachelor of Music degree from the University of Kansas in 1952. He earned a Masterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree in Music Education in 1958 and a Ph.D. in Music Education in 1973, both from the University of Kansas. Dr. Ralston served in the U.S. Navy from 1952 to 1956 and remained in the Naval Reserve program, retiring as a Commander, USNR-R in 1974. He taught choral music at Washington High School in Kansas City, Kansas, from 1956 to 1962. Ralston joined the faculty of the University of Kansas in 1962 as a visiting lecturer in choral music. The following semester he was a graduate assistant in the School of Education. He was appointed assistant professor in choral music in 1963 and became a full professor in 1978. He retired from KU in 1994. Professor Ralston also served as Chair of the Department of Ensembles at KU from 1976 to 1983; from 1983 to 1994, he was Director of the Choral Division. He was also associated with the Midwestern Music camp beginning in 1964. During his tenure at KU, Dr. Ralston worked with eminent choral directors such as Donald Swarthout, Clayton Krehbiel, and Robert Shaw. His choirs also performed with the Kansas City Philharmonic, the Kansas City Symphony, and the Wichita Symphony. They also performed for the conventions of Kansas Music Educators Association, Music Educators National Conference, and American Choral Directors Association. Among the major works for chorus and orchestra that Professor Ralston conducted during his tenure are the following: J.S. Bach, Mass in B Minor and St. John Passion; Beethoven, Missa Solemnis; Berlioz, Requiem; Bernstein, Chichester Psalms; Brahms, German Requiem; Britten, War Requiem; Handel, The Messiah, Solomon, and Dixit Dominus; Haydn, Creation; Mendelssohn, Elijah; Mozart, Grand Mass in C Minor and Requiem; Orff, Carmina Burana; Stravinsky, Symphony of Psalms; and Verdi, Four Sacred Songs (for Michael Palmer); and Mahler, Eighth Symphony (for William McGlaughlin). During his career, Ralston was actively involved in the preparation and performance of many new works, mostly in conjunction with the Symposium of

Contemporary Music at the University of Kansas. Included among the many composers were Lukas Foss, Norman Dello Joio, Vincent Persichetti, Gunther Schuller, and Libby Larsen. In 1970 Dr. Ralston initiated a masterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree program in choral conducting at KU, and in 1973 he began the doctoral degree program in choral conducting. Under his supervision, more than thirty students completed graduate degrees in choral conducting from the University of Kansas. In nearly forty years of service to music and music education in the state, he conducted over fifty concerts of major choral works at KU, more than thirty Vespers performances, and taught choral music to students numbering in the thousands. In 1997 he was inducted into the Kansas Music Educators Association Hall of Fame. Dr. Ralston was a member of the Monday Rotary Club and served as their song leader for fortysix years. Rotary honored him as a Paul Harris Fellow. From 1956-1962 he directed the Welborn Community Church Choir in Kansas City, Kansas; in the 1960â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s he was the choir director at Plymouth Congregational Church; from 1973-2008 he was the choral director for Trinity Episcopal Church. Other honors include the Federated Music Clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1999 Kansas Musical Family of the Year Award and the 2003 Phoenix Award in Musical Arts.

Community college branch sought for Douglas County By Chad Lawhorn

Lawrence economic development leaders are actively recruiting an area community college to locate a branch campus in the county to provide more vocational and technical training to workers.

More vo-tech opportunities needed, economic development leaders say Greg Williams, president and CEO of the Lawrence Chamber of Commerce, told the newly formed Lawrence-Douglas County Joint Economic Development Council that more vocational training opportunities

are needed to help attract new employers to the region. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are in serious and good discussions with leadership of area community colleges,â&#x20AC;? Williams said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They see a real need to bring a satellite cam-

pus of a community college to Lawrence. That could be a game changer for this community when it comes to vocational training.â&#x20AC;? Lawrence Mayor Bob Schumm said the need for more

vocational training opportunities became evident when Lawrence recently was eliminated as a finalist for a manufacturing plant for wind-generating Please see VO-TECH, page 4A

UNION PACIFIC EMPLOYEES SEARCH DEBRIS as several excavators remove coal from the scene of a train derailment early Tuesday morning in Grantville. Officials received the call about the derailment about 9:35 p.m. Monday. Grantville is about 25 miles west of Lawrence, along U.S. Highway 24. See more photos and a video at

Grantville derailment 2nd in a year By Shaun Hittle

On Nov. 15, 2011, an Illinois-bound, coal-carrying Union Pacific train derailed in Grantville, 25 miles west of Lawrence. Nearly one year to the day, another Illinoisbound, coal-carrying

Union Pacific train derailed in Grantville Monday night. No one was injured in either derailment, but during Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s incident, a four-foot piece of rail shot through a home, landing on an unoccupied bottom bunk of a childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bed, said Jeffer-

son County Sheriff Jeff Herrig. Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s derailment occurred near the intersection of Front and Wilson streets, said Mark David, a Union Pacific spokesman. A cause has not yet been determined, he said. About 160 feet of the

track will need to be replaced. One of the lines reopened Tuesday morning, but Davis said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unclear when the other line will reopen. Twenty-nine cars of the 119-car train derailed on Monday. In the 2011 derailment, 32 cars of a 142-car train derailed.

Evolution debate In recent years, debate over science standards in Kansas has ignited heated debate over the teaching of evolution, with groups representing religious conservatives pressuring the state to downplay the importance of evolution by allowing the teaching of creationism and intelligent design. But it now appears unlikely that the evolution debate will get much attention in the current process. Matt Krehbiel, the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s science program consultant who is heading the Kansas review team, told the board Tuesday that there is little interest in challenging the new standardsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; treatment of evolution as one of the key, unifying principles of science. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The committee, by consensus, told me that the way evolution is handled on these standards is appropriate,â&#x20AC;? Krehbiel said. Krehbiel added, however, that the standards themselves will have little impact on how science is actually taught in classrooms. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At the risk of being potentially misquoted, they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make any difference at all because standards donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t teach students,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s our teachers that teach students. And so certainly how we implement these standards could make a difference. But the standards themselves wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make that difference. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the teachers in the classroom that make the difference. The curriculum that surrounds the standards is always a local decision.â&#x20AC;? Krehbiel said the next public draft of the new standards will be available for review and public comment in mid-December. Earlier, it was expected the draft would be available in mid-November, but Krehbiel said the schedule was pushed back, in part because of delays caused by Superstorm Sandy on the East Coast.

to a report by a Kansas University professor who said most school districts in the state are not complying with state or federal law requiring them to adopt policies to combat bullying in public schools. Robert Harrington, a professor of psychology and research at KU, reported to the State Board of Education in October that fewer than half of the school districts in Kansas meet those legal requirements. Harrington has written extensively on the subject of bullying and has developed a certificate program to help schools address the problem. His report last month prompted the state board to ask the school boards association for more detailed information. In a four-page memo written by a staff attorney for the association, KASB said Harringtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s findings â&#x20AC;&#x153;flabbergasted the KASB staff and individual school district staff members in attendance at the meeting and have created a wave of consternation and disagreement with such findings ...â&#x20AC;? KASB noted that Harringtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s findings were based on a survey he sent to public school districts. If a district did not respond, KASB said, he counted the district as not having a policy in place. KASB also surveyed its own members about their bullying policies. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All districts responding have expressed disagreement with the results of Dr. Harringtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s study, have provided that they are currently in full compliance, and are often doing significantly more than the statutory requirements dictate in hopes of eliminating bullying behaviors in their districts,â&#x20AC;? the memo stated. When reached for comment, Harrington referenced the U.S. Department of Educationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s anti-bullying website, which summarizes state laws on the subject. The page summarizing Kansas suggests that Kansas laws fall short of meeting federal standards in several key areas. That summary can be found at stopbullying. gov/laws/kansas.html.

I noticed Free State was going to have to play its playoff game at Shawnee Mission West on Friday. How do they determine where those games are played?


7 p.m. Friday. The Kansas State High School Activities Association mandates that the number of times a school has hosted a playoff round this season is the first factor in determining a host site. Because Free State had home games in each of the first two rounds and SMW had only hosted in the opening round, Shawnee Mission West gets to host the semifinal.

Woman to stand trial in blackmail case Douglas County District Court Judge Peggy Kittel ordered a 31-year-old Baldwin City woman to stand trial for allegedly blackmailing a convicted Lawrence sex offender. Janice Boline faces one count of blackmail after she allegedly threatened a registered sex offender that she would publish his photo and name in a magazine unless he paid her $5,000. The man, who manages a local business, testified Tuesday at a preliminary hearing that Boline approached him in September. She allegedly told him he could keep his name and photo out of an October


magazine if he agreed to pay her the $5,000. The name of the publication was not released during Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s testimony. The man emailed Boline later COURTS about the offer and turned those documents over to police. Boline was arrested Sept. 26 and released on a $2,500 bond. Blackmail is punishable by up to 34 months in prison, depending on someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s criminal history. A trial has been set for Feb. 13.

Developer in dispute City over Varsity House offers $50K donation


By Chad Lawhorn

Lawrence developer Thomas Fritzel has offered to make a $50,000 donation to historic preservation efforts as a way to resolve a dispute regarding a controversy involving the 1900s-era Varsity House. Fritzel delivered a letter to Lawrence city commissioners Tuesday evening offering to either â&#x20AC;&#x153;raise or guarantee pledgesâ&#x20AC;? of $50,000 to the Douglas County Community Foundation to further historic preservation in the community. The donation offer comes after city commissioners last month said they believed Fritzelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s efforts to move the old Varsity House to make way for a new apartment project at 1043 Indiana St. had fallen short. Specifically, commissioners contended that Fritzel had not followed through on moving the original house but rather was rebuilding the old home using bits and pieces of salvaged material from the house. In his letter, Fritzel said he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t agree with that view but made the offer in an effort to â&#x20AC;&#x153;compromise and resolve our differences.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Due to the extensive pre-existing deterioration of the substructure, which in turn created several challenges related to moving and relocating the original structure, the outcome is that the Varsity House was unable to be put back in its original form as anticipated at the time of land use approval,â&#x20AC;? Fritzel wrote. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This out-

come was not done with a desire to ignore the intent of the site requirements. To the contrary, it was the only way to ensure the structural integrity and longevity of the Varsity House, all at considerable additional expense.â&#x20AC;? Commissioners at their Tuesday evening meeting took no action on the offer but agreed to add it to their agenda at next Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meeting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The letter indicates a willingness to work with us,â&#x20AC;? Mayor Bob Schumm said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a very positive step with this particular situation.â&#x20AC;? Dennis Brown, president of the Lawrence Preservation Alliance, said Tuesday evening he had not yet read the letter but was encouraged by what he had heard of the potential deal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Varsity House will never come back,â&#x20AC;? Brown said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are building a nice replica at the site. But if they make a donation that makes a donation that helps some other structure in jeopardy, that will be a point of justice.â&#x20AC;? City commissioners received the letter just before conducting a public hearing related to a proposed $25 million city recreation center that would be located at a proposed Kansas University sports complex just north of the northeast intersection of Sixth Street and the South Lawrence Trafficway. A group led by Fritzel has been proposed to be the builder for the city and KU complex. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362. Follow him at

Commissioners on a 4-1 vote directed staff members to begin crafting formal agreements to commit to building the project with the Kansas University Endowment Association. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We know this project is going to guarantee us a world-class facility on a municipal budget,â&#x20AC;? City Commissioner Mike Dever said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That is an opportunity I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t turn down.â&#x20AC;? Commissioners agreed to begin crafting agreements that would allow the project to be built on about 100 acres north of the northeast intersection of Sixth Street and the South Lawrence Trafficway. In addition to a 181,000-square-foot, eightgym recreation center/ youth fieldhouse, the project also would include KU-owned facilities for track and field, softball and soccer.

Wednesday, November 14, 2012

City commissioners have conducted preliminary negotiations with KU Endowment that cap the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cost for the project at $25 million. For that price, the city would receive the recreation center, eight lighted tennis courts, about five kilometers of multipurpose trails, and would own the building and the 20 acres of real estate that houses the city facilities. The city is estimating its portion of the project will have a market value of about $33.5 million, even though the city would pay only $25 million for the project. KU Endowment and its donors would pick up the additional cost of the project. KU also would be responsible for paying for the KU-owned facilities that would be part of the sports complex. The deal, though, has details unusual for a city project. KU Endowment is insisting that it build the building using its own contractor rather than allowing the city to put the

recreation center construction out for bid. KU Endowment is planning to use a development group led by Lawrence builder Thomas Fritzel. Several members of the public said the city didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have enough details about the arrangements between KU Endowment and various private parties to move forward with such a large project. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m feeling very nervous about the enormity of this project and how much it costs,â&#x20AC;? Lawrence resident Tom Harper said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And there are so many moving parts to that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a little overwhelmed by it.â&#x20AC;? But supporters of the project outnumbered opponents on Tuesday night. About 35 female athletes from KU showed up at City Hall to show support for the project. Commissioners also heard from parents of Lawrence children who said the city had fallen far behind what other communities offer in terms of indoor recreation space.

Commissioners have been told by consultants that the 181,000-squarefoot recreation center can attract regional and perhaps even national youth tournaments to the city. A report earlier this year estimated about 30 tournaments and camps a year could use the center. But on Tuesday, commissioners sought to downplay those projections. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I believe the economic benefits of this facility will be real, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not relying on those numbers to make this decision,â&#x20AC;? City Commissioner Hugh Carter said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m thoroughly convinced of the community need for this center. First and foremost, this center will serve the recreation needs of this community.â&#x20AC;? City staff members are expected to work on crafting formal agreements for the project over the next several weeks. Those agreements will be brought back to city commissioners for review and approval.

Officials hoping to expand telemedicine program to help vets By Scott Rothschild

TOPEKA â&#x20AC;&#x201D; As more veterans deal with mental and physical health problems, officials say a new program in Kansas will deliver medical assistance quicker and more efficiently, and perhaps will become a model for other states to follow. Gov. Sam Brownback and officials from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and Kansas University Medical Center announced Tuesday a collaborative effort aimed at getting veterans help through telemedicine. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is going to be a great service to our veterans,â&#x20AC;? Brownback said. Under the plan, a veteran could go to a nearby clinic or hospital and, through a secure video hookup, receive mental health counseling or other services from a health care provider. That way the veteran doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to travel a long distance to a veterans center. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It means reaching them at a point much earlier as they deal with issues rather than waiting until maybe those issues manifest themselves into more serious or


It means reaching them at a point much earlier as they deal with issues rather than waiting until maybe those issues manifest themselves into more serious or critical lifesafety issues.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Kansas Adjutant General Lee Tafanelli critical life-safety issues,â&#x20AC;? said Kansas Adjutant General Lee Tafanelli, a former state legislator from Ozawkie who also served as a battalion commander in Iraq. Nationally, mental health issues affect nearly onethird of the men and women who return home from deployments to Iraq or Afghanistan, according to the National Council for Behavioral Health. A 2011 pilot program in Kansas involved three hospitals providing mental health services. Officials said they hoped to expand that to more than 80 telemedicine sites throughout the state under the Kansas University Center for Telemedicine and Telehealth. The KU Medical Centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Area Health Education Center in Garden City is the first to sign up for the new program.

Dr. Ryan Spaulding, director of the KU Center for Telemedicine, said he hoped the partnership would be duplicated in other parts of the country. Dr. William Patterson, director of the VA Heartland Network, which covers all or portions of six states, including Kansas, described the collaboration as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;trailblazer.â&#x20AC;? The proposal was the brainchild of state Rep. Tom Sloan, R-Lawrence, who three years ago contacted Veterans Affairs leaders about the idea. They said it sounded good, so Sloan arranged for them to work with the KU Medical Center. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just a big believer in using technology to deliver health care and education,â&#x20AC;? he said. Brownback called Sloan â&#x20AC;&#x153;a true renaissance legislator.â&#x20AC;?


Escape charges against sex offender dropped Escape charges against a Colorado sex offender who escaped from a prison transport van Oct. 29 in Lawrence have been dropped, and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been sent back to Colorado, according to court records. Deon Gregory Routt, 22, was on the loose for less than 24 hours after escaping from a prison transport van near 23rd and Louisiana

streets. The next day, he was captured near Kansas University. Routt was being transported by Topeka-based Security Transport Services from the East Coast back to Colorado. Routt was arrested in Maine on a warrant issued by the El Paso County (Colo.) Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office for failing to register as a sex offender, according

to a sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office spokesman. Routt faces up to 18 months in prison for failing to register as a sex offender in Colorado. Routt was convicted in 2011 of sexually assaulting a child in Colorado, but the crime occurred when Routt was a juvenile. Additional information about the conviction was not available.

Judge blocks use of voter names in 54th District race, sets hearing By John Hanna Associated Press

nee County from releasing voter names to the candidates, but his filing Friday in federal Mah court was too late to prevent it. He amended his lawsuit late Monday to block the candidates from using the names theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d received and included Douglas County in the lawsuit. Mah trails Corbet by 44 votes out of nearly 10,700 cast, and sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hoping to pick up enough votes from as-yet-uncounted provisional ballots to overcome Corbetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lead. Both candidates hope to contact voters and help correct potential problems so that their ballots will be counted when the Douglas and Shawnee county commissioners certify results Thursday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everythingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on hold until we investigate what

the options are,â&#x20AC;? Mah said. Kobach, a former law professor, is known nationally for Corbet helping to draft laws in Arizona and Alabama cracking down on illegal immigration. He also pushed successfully in Kansas for a law requiring voters to show photo identification at the polls. Mah has repeatedly criticized him and the law, and a political action committee formed by Kobach spent $3,123 on a mailing boosting Corbet just days before the election. Democrats contend Kobach is trying to eliminate Mahâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s last, slim hope for winning, but Kobach said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trying to protect votersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; privacy. He also contends the disclosure of votersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; names would violate federal law.

To hear him tell it, there is no place like Kansas to make a home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like the freedom, people able to do whatever they want; of course, there are certain limits,â&#x20AC;? Agafonov said of why he wants to make a home here. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And the convenience. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a really developed country. The roads, the environment. Everything is well-built.â&#x20AC;? At that point, his expression grew somber. He seemed to be picturing something in the distance during a long pause. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think about the schools my children will be at,â&#x20AC;? he said in a way that made it clear he thinks about it often. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not as simple as putting his hometown sweetheart wife, Anna, and 3-year-old son, Yaroslav, on an airplane and finding a job and an apartment. His status as a foreigner complicates matters considerably. During his recent twoweek stay in Kansas, Agafonov looked for work and explored other avenues of returning to the United States from Russia, where he and has family have lived for stretches with former KU basketball player Sasha Kaun, now playing professionally in Moscow, and his wife. Agafonov had hoped the experience he acquired working briefly after graduation for Dish Network, in the global marketing division, would qualify him for employment opportunities. Without citizenship, a potential employee needs to be more than qualified, Agafonovâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s former KU throws coach, Andy Kokhanovsky, explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If an employer brings someone from overseas, the employer has to have proof for Immigration that they could not find a qualified American for the job,â&#x20AC;? said Kokhanovsky, himself a native of the Ukraine. The employer also must pay the visa fee of slightly

During the last fiscal year, he said, KU Hospital treated patients from 49 of 50 states, as well as all 105 counties in Kansas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve really become a destination facility for patients across the country,â&#x20AC;? Page said. During the 2012 fiscal year, the hospitalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capital expenditures totaled less than the $141.2 million reached during the 2011 year, as the hospital completed construction of a new Medical Office Building. Capital spending during that year was a 146 percent increase from the year before, though. Capital projects for the hospital during the 2012 year included the completion of a three-and-a-

EGOR AGAFONOV SPINS INTO HIS APPROACH during the finals of the hammer throw event April 16, 2009, at Memorial Stadium, where he finished in second place in the event. A 2009 KU graduate now residing in Russia, Agafonov wants a permanent home in Kansas for his family, but given the bureaucratic hurdles he has to get over, he knows there is no guarantee that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll achieve his American dream. more than $1,000, according to Agafonov. Not wanting to pin all his hopes on those factors falling into line, Agafonov is pursuing another path to achieve his dream. He has applied to KUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Masters in Business Administration program and for a job as a graduate assistant in the athletic departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s academic support staff, where his name is as golden as any medal he ever could win. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Of all the students Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve worked with in my 19 years working with international students, Egor was as hungry to learn as anyone,â&#x20AC;? said Phil Lowcock, KUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coordinator of international student-athlete support. Unlike most universities, Kansas decided as an institution more than a quarter century ago to evaluate applicants from foreign countries based on their aptitude in their original language, regardless of their proficiency level in English, according to Paul Buskirk, direct of studentathlete support services. In doing so, Kansas attracts the best minds, though not necessarily the most polished speakers of English. Such students take an English proficiency exam. If they can test out of Applied English Center courses, they take classes with the general student body.

If they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, they must take AEC classes until their English advances. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A nonathlete can sit in AEC classes a semester or two or four or as long as they need to gain English proficiency,â&#x20AC;? Buskirk said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The NCAA (dictates) that the studentathlete has to become English-proficient in one year, zero to 60 in one year.â&#x20AC;? That wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t much of a challenge for Agafonov when he arrived at KU from his hometown of Togliatti, Russia. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For Egor to come in not knowing much English, soars through that in a year, and is thrown immediately into competition with regular English instruction in such a short period of time and becomes an Academic AllAmerican is absolutely stunning,â&#x20AC;? Buskirk said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Absolutely stunning.â&#x20AC;? Buskirk said it is rare for students to become tutors during their stay and â&#x20AC;&#x153;only the brightestâ&#x20AC;? are given such a responsibility. Lowcock said Agafonov wondered why he had to take AEC classes. He wanted to be mainstreamed immediately. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He knew enough English to get his point across, but his grammar was horrendous,â&#x20AC;? Lowcock said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It frustrates some students to have to take the classes, but in the long run it pays off in the corporate

Page said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trying to renovate units that are still 1970s vintage units in our hospital.â&#x20AC;? Growing along with the hospitalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s revenue in the 2012 fiscal year was its support of the KU Medical Center, which increased by 21 percent and reached a record $106.7 million. That

funding goes toward faculty salaries, recruiting packages for new faculty, academic programs and more. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are an academic medical center, and in order to be an academic medical center you need to make sure that all partners are strong on the campus,â&#x20AC;? Page said. Since the Hospital Authority took control of the hospital in 1998, it has made a combined $888 million in capital expenditures and increased from about 2,200 employees to nearly 5,900. During the Hospital Authorityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s board meeting, the hospital chief operating officer, Tammy Peterman, said its patient satisfaction scores were improving so far during the current fiscal year. She said satisfaction ranked in the 93rd percentile among large hospitals nationally during the cur-

world because when their English sounds polished they do much better in the corporate world.â&#x20AC;? In time, Agafonov said he began dreaming and thinking in English. Living in his home country the past two-plus years has slowed his English skills, although his grammar is sharp. He tends to speak without using articles such as â&#x20AC;&#x153;theâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;aâ&#x20AC;? and sometimes searches for a word. No longer training, he said his weight has dropped from 260 to 230 pounds. His mental muscles have been exercised in the corporate world. After winning NCAA indoor national championships in 2007 and 2008 in the weight throw and finishing third at the 2008 NCAA outdoor meet in the hammer throw, Agafonov graduated from KU in 2009 and pursued a global marketing career. He went to work for Dish Network, was assigned to a New Jersey office for three months to make the right connections and then assigned to Denver, where he worked for nine months, in charge of Russian marketing, until his work permit expired. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought everything was OK, until the last moment,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It happened the person in charge of the papers left the company and the new person came in, and it took her time to find out what was going on. Huge corporation, so many people. My case was lost and by the time it was found, it was too late.â&#x20AC;? Returning to that job is not an option, he said, because the international marketing division in which he worked has been reduced from 15 employees to two. What Agafonov saw of different corners of the world during that job enhanced his desire to become an American. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dish Network is an American company, working properly, very open, not hiding anything,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But in international market, they are competing with all these pirate companies

from Africa or Asia. They take TV signal and distribute it through Internet and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not paying any royalties. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re providing more channels and they steal our signals and our competitorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; signals, combine them into their own package, and sell for much lower price.â&#x20AC;? Agafonov said he worked with an agency in London that specializes in stamping out fraud. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The funny part is I helped them to close two of these pirate companies, but the next week five new ones come to the market,â&#x20AC;? he said. After his work permit expired, he and his family returned to Russia. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Moscow is one of the most expensive cities in the world,â&#x20AC;? said Agafonov, who added that a marketing job similar to the one he worked in Denver might pay $2,000 a month in Russia. He found work in Vladivostok, â&#x20AC;&#x153;as long a flight from Moscow as New York is,â&#x20AC;? as a project coordinator of a con-

| 7A

struction crew made up of workers from several countries. He said the job paid well, and he worked seven days and 70 hours a week. Upon completion of the project earlier this year, he returned to Moscow to look for work, even though his longrange goal is to land in Kansas. If he is admitted to school, hired as a graduate assistant by the athletic departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s academic support staff and the Immigration service is satisfied he will earn enough money while getting his MBA, he could be back in Lawrence for the start of classes Jan. 18. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I met many good people here and made a lot of friends,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really miss them. The other thing is, people are really friendly here. They are friendly there (in Russia) too, but you feel you are in the Midwest here. Even if you go to New York area, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interesting, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s little bit different. Kansas is a great place, especially for a family.â&#x20AC;?

rent quarter, and it ranked in the 86th percentile for the fiscal year to date. And that improvement has come while patient satisfaction has risen at hospitals across the country, Peterman said. The hospitalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s satisfaction scores in fiscal year 2008 ranked in the 88th percentile, she said, but those same scores today would fall in the 62nd percentile. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The bar is just continuing to go up,â&#x20AC;? Peterman said. Peterman also told board members that the hospital gave about 3,200 flu shots during its annual free drive-thru vaccination event in October, and its annual Treads and Threads fundraiser netted a record of more than $900,000.

A private life, a public loss No easy choices PUBLIC FORUM

Help wanted? Members of the public would be better able to assist the investigation of a string of local arson fires if they had more information.


he public has been asked to help local law enforcement as it continues to focus on halting what apparently is a string of arson fires in apartment buildings. Everyone, particularly those of us in the news media, wants to help. Nobody wants another Boardwalk situation. The problem is that Fire Chief Mark Bradford just wants to shout “Help!” without providing any context for the public to attempt to assist. Ridiculously, the Journal-World was reduced to filing an open records request to try to obtain even limited information as background to a vague press release that initially asked for public assistance. The chief unresponsively provided information about 21 fires, not all of which are related to the circumstances, for a fee of $110. How much more productive it would have been for all concerned to have had an adult conversation about the situation so that the public could have been appropriately informed and perhaps provided the sought-after assistance, without any compromise to the investigation. Let’s hope that somehow a lesson is learned from this instance so that the community and its first responders work better together in the future.

CAIRO, EGYPT — The sudden resignation of David Petraeus as CIA director over an affair makes me very sad, and quite angry. There’s something wrong with a political system that destroys men of his talent over a very human mistake. Yes, I know he showed bad judgment and may have considered it a matter of honor to step down. But I think his resignation should have been rejected. Can our system really afford to lose him and upend the CIA, yet again, over such a peccadillo? Do we really have such talent to spare? Petraeus was not accused of any security breach, and — as the whole world now knows — the affair was discovered only tangentially through another FBI investigation. This is now an unfortunate situation he must resolve with his wife. But why, at a time when the CIA is crucial in anti-terrorism operations, and Petraeus so knowledgeable on Afghanistan, Pakistan, Africa and the Middle East, should the country lose his skills because of a personal matter? Watching from Cairo, where guns and jihadis are passing through from next door Libya and making the Sinai into a new terrorist nexis, I wonder how Petraeus’ exit will affect the efforts to curb this problem? Or to

Do we really have such talent to spare?” deal with the influx of jihadis into Syria, or drone attacks in Pakistan, etc., etc. Who can be surprised that, having served multiple tours in Iraq and Afghanistan over the past decade, under incredible pressure, this disciplined general might have slipped up? Had he compromised security it would be one thing. But if not, why should the whole country pay the price for his marital sin? The perils of false purity became clear during the impeachment proceedings against President Bill Clinton. Supposedly that mess was precipitated because he lied, but in reality it was a political vendetta. It backfired

Quick resolution It was nice to see the question of a potential gravesite quickly resolved so a planned development can move forward.


or once it didn’t involve late-night meetings, teeth-gnashing with attorneys, and city and county agencies conferring and compromising to move a Lawrence development project a step forward. It did take a backhoe, a rather innovative tool considering Lawrence’s contentious reputation involving growth and development. After a day’s worth of excavations at Ninth and New Hampshire, the state archeologist declared that construction of a multistory hotel project can proceed as scheduled. No evidence was found to support a 1903 Kansas University master’s thesis that contended victims of the Quantrill Raid were buried in a mass grave on the site. That’s good news. There’s no word about any possible re-grade on that thesis, although the state archeologist noted “… it’s possible to be wrong about anything.”



The two southbound lanes were the first priority in construction of the four-lane U.S. 59 highway south of Lawrence, according to Joe McYEARS Court, Lawrence engineer for the AGO state Highway Commission. During IN 1972 the project, the existing highway was to be torn up, with that area eventually being used as the median. When traffic was discontinued on the existing 59, the new southbound lanes would serve as the alternate roadway. — Compiled by Sarah St. John

when many of the legislators who decried the president’s immorality were revealed to have committed similar or worse acts in private. Shouldn’t we have learned to be wary of penalizing our leaders for sins of the flesh? News reports say the Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper asked Petraeus to resign, and he agreed. I don’t know the details. But I do know that even those who criticized Petraeus as overly ambitious recognize the sacrifices he made for his country. My many trips to Iraq left no doubt in my mind that the counterinsurgency strategy he promoted there prevented an even more grisly civil war, and ended the heaviest fighting. In Afghanistan, he did the best possible with the hand he was dealt. Stephen Kinzer has an oped in the New York Times Saturday detailing the serial affairs of Allen Dulles, CIA chief from 1953 to 1961, in the pre-Internet days when such behavior wasn’t reported. Dulles’ compulsive womanizing probably did jeopardize his work, unlike Petraeus’ folly. But reading this piece made me yearn for the days when national leaders were judged on performance, and their private lives remained just that.

To the editor: The Nov. 7 Lawrence Journal-World editorial, regarding the new Bowersock hydropower plant in Lawrence, asks if it is reasonable, should drought conditions persist, for the Bowersock plant to release “900 million gallons of water ultimately” from the Kansas River system upon which people depend, to drive the turbines to produce clean, renewable energy, when the same electricity “could be generated easily by coal-fired or nuclear plants.” From the Union of Concerned Scientists website: “A typical 500-megawatt coalfired power plant draws about 2.2 billion gallons of water each year from nearby water bodies, such as lakes, rivers, or oceans, to create steam for turning its turbines. This is enough water to support a city of approximately 250,000 people.” From an Aug. 27, 2012, Journal-World article: “Wolf Creek (Nuclear Power Plant) officials said the dwindling water levels at nearby John Redmond Reservoir … could make it difficult for the plant to operate if the drought continues for many months. … The lake plays an important role in providing water to cool the reactor.” — Trudy Rubin is a columnist The time has come for and editorial board member for the Kansans and global citizens Philadelphia Inquirer. to address seriously the unavoidable triad of water use, energy usage and climate change. Even oceans are not necessarily reliable water sources, as evidenced by the Fukushima nuclear disaster, following an earthquake and tsunami near Japan in 2011. It may be not entirely accurate to categorize any solutions to these issues as easy. Laurie Ward, Lawrence

GOP change To the editor: If the current soul-searching of the Republican Party leads the devoted members to change their ideology to be more demographically attuned to the times, will they then change the long-held planks in their noninclusive platform? Will that action lead them away from the tea party radicals and then form a national four-party system of Democrats, realistic Republicans who have changed their core beliefs, hard right Republicans still living in the past, and tea party Republicans? When they change their core ideology are they still Republicans? H Millard Klein, Lawrence American public just wanted to forget that it had ever taken place.

Vietnam vets deserve better I am writing this column on Veterans Day, a day for celebrating all of the men and women who have sacrificed for our country by serving in our armed forces. It is also a day for sober reflection, reflection on how we have treated these veterans over the years. It is this which I want to discuss briefly here. I was a college student during the Vietnam War. That war was a very troubling war in many ways. It divided the nation. Millions of Americans supported the war; millions — including a large number of students and young people — did not. The issue of whether the war was just and whether the United States should have been involved in the first place was complicated by the draft. It is hard for young people today to remember a time when the government drafted young men at 18 to go fight in a foreign land against their will. The inequalities in the draft process made the situation worse. For much of the war, students who were in college were exempted from the draft as long as they maintained passing grades. This was also a time when fewer people went to college so that the draft fell disproportionately on those who could not afford college. Student protests against the war erupted across the nation and this enraged many older Americans who had fought in World War II and in Korea. Generation was pitted against generation. But

still many young Americans volunteered to go and fight for their country. But something terrible happened. Anger against the war turned into anger against the military and those who served. Soldiers coming home were not treated as heroes as they are today. They were made the objects of scorn and ridicule. One rarely heard the phrase “thank you for your service” in those days. Instead soldiers and veterans were often taunted if they wore their uniforms in public. Many had been injured physically and psychologically in the war and neither the public nor the government provided the kind of comfort and treatment they needed. They still don’t do enough.

KANSAS FORWARD PERRY ELLIS, LEFT, LOOKS TO PASS around Michigan State center Adreian Payne during the first half.

ATLANTA — Dribbling left from the right wide post, completely under control as if playing another high school game en route to his four consecutive Kansas state championships, Kansas University forward Perry Ellis ever-so-smoothly executed a spin move and went in for an easy bucket on the right side of the hoop early in the opening minutes. Rare is the freshman who can make such a smooth move on such a big stage against such a good team. Michigan State, a perennial powerhouse that bruises its way to Big Ten championships and Final Four runs under feisty coach Tom Izzo, won the game, 67-64, Tuesday night. As the opener of a heavyweight doubleheader in the Georgia Dome progressed, the reality that playing college basketball in the paint requires so much more than skill settled in on Ellis, who watched more of the game than he played. That won’t

happen often during his Kansas career. On consecutive possessions late, Ellis missed a close shot when he didn’t go up strong and appeared to avoid contact instinctively and then on the perimeter picked up his dribble prematurely, looked a little confused when searching for someone to pass the ball to and turned it over. Those plays spelled the end of Ellis’ day with 3:32 remaining. He played 17 minutes, scored four first-half points, had three rebounds and didn’t defend the paint the way he will when he Please see KEEGAN, page 7B

Weis yearns for fitting sendoff for 23 seniors By Matt Tait

Saturday is Senior Night for Kansas University’s football team. But as far as KU coach Charlie Weis is concerned, that’s not enough. For nearly one third of his 32-minute meeting with the media on Tuesday, Weis talked passionately about his first senior class at Kansas and spoke of putting a different emphasis

on his business-as-usual approach. “To be honest with you, it’s not about the program this week,” Weis said. “It’s about the seniors this week. I selfishly take the team out of this one this week. Obviously, every win is gonna matter to the program, but I’m dead serious when I say I wanna win this game very, very badly this week, but not because of me and not because of the program. I wanna win it for those kids.”

As far as Weis is concerned, KU’s 23 seniors deserve at least that much. From the guys who played for three head coaches during their four or five seasons at KU to those who just arrived, Weis said watching the seniors leave Memorial Stadium with a smile Saturday would be one of the most important moments of his first season at Kansas. After all, these were the players who welcomed Weis into the program last December, guys

who bought in without complaining, showed the younger players what it meant to handle themselves with class and turned out week after week, loss after loss, ready to put everything behind them and try to get the next one. “These are my guys,” Weis said. “And I’ll be there for ’em forever — whatever they need from me. Within reason. I don’t need to have recruited them and have coached them to respect them.”

Respect is a serious deal These for Weis. And his actions are my this week toward a senior class that has won just six guys. And times in the past 41 games I’ll be there illustrate that his feelings about this group go beyond for ’em a few words in front of the forever — cameras and recorders at a whatever news conference. they need Although several members of the media requested from me.” interviews with other players and a few coaches this — KU coach Charlie Weis Please see SENIORS, page 4B

Crennel: Discipline to be addressed By Dave Skretta Associated Press Sports Writer

KANSAS CITY, MO. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Romeo Crennel isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sure why the Chiefs decided to start playing Dance Dance Revolution on the turf of Heinz Field with a national television audience watching on Monday Night Football. He is sure he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like it. The Kansas City coach said Tuesday that he plans to speak to his team about discipline issues that cropped up during an overtime loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, including one instance in which the Chiefs were flagged for a group celebration on a touchdown that didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a surprise to me,â&#x20AC;? Crennel said of the sudden celebrations. Perhaps the Chiefs were simply channeling their inner Fred Astaire, or auditioning for â&#x20AC;&#x153;A Chorus Line,â&#x20AC;? since there might be several of them searching for jobs come January.

The personalfoul-inducing dance occurred early in the third quarter. Steelers backup quarterback Byron Leftwich, pressed into service following a Crennel shoulder injury to Ben Roethlisberger, threw an incompletion that was initially ruled a fumble. Chiefs linebacker Justin Houston picked up the bouncing ball and ran 21 yards for a touchdown that would have given his team a 16-10 lead. The second-year pro started gyrating in the end zone and was quickly joined by veteran Derrick Johnson, safety Eric Berry and a handful of others. Whistles were blown. Flags were thrown. Then a video review determined it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a fumble, giving Pittsburgh the ball back, along with the sobering news that the

personal-foul penalty would still be enforced. The Steelers got a free first down out of the deal, one of three caused by Kansas City penalties. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to emphasize to the guys those kinds of penalties are hurtful to the team,â&#x20AC;? Crennel said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need them, and then weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see if we need to sit people or not.â&#x20AC;? It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even the first instance of taunting by the Chiefs, though. There was the time that wide receiver Dwayne Bowe stuck out the ball at chasing Pittsburgh defenders as he trotted into the end zone for another would-be touchdown. Another brief celebration ensued, only for a holding call on Branden Albert to nix the precious points. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always frustrating when you think you have a touchdown pass, and all of a sudden you see a flag on the field,â&#x20AC;? said Chiefs quarterback Matt Cassel, who started again in place of injured Brady Quinn. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is unfor-

tunate and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always tough to overcome that.â&#x20AC;? Then there was the dancing following the sack that knocked Roethlisberger from the game. It might have been the most humorous moment of the night. Houston and fellow pass rusher Tamba Hali sandwiched the Steelersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; quarterback on the first drive of the third quarter. The two linebackers left Roethlisberger lying in a heap, and offered up their best homage to the 1980s hip-hop duo Kid â&#x20AC;&#x2122;n Play with a well-executed collaboration. That dance wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t received well, either. The discipline issues, which contributed to six penalties for 76 yards and left Kansas City 2 for 13 on third downs, overshadowed what might have been the Chiefsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; best game of the year. Casselâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interception in overtime â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the Chiefsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; NFL-leading 30th turnover of the year â&#x20AC;&#x201D; ultimately allowed Shaun Suisham to kick the winning field goal for Pittsburgh.

Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Basketball Time

MIAMI (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Miami Marlinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; spending spree a year ago didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work, so now theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying another payroll purge â&#x20AC;&#x201D; shedding their biggest stars and their multimillion-dollar salaries in one blockbuster deal. Rebranded in a new ballpark at the start of 2012, the Marlins were up to their old ways Tuesday, swapping high-priced talent for top prospects. Miami traded All-Star shortstop Jose Reyes, left-hander Mark Buehrle and ace right-hander Josh Johnson to the Toronto Blue Jays, a person familiar with the agreement said. The person confirmed the trade to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the teams werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t officially commenting. The person said the trade sent several of the Blue Jaysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; best young players to Miami. The stunning agreement came less than a year after the Marlins added Reyes, Buehrle and closer Heath Bell in an uncharacteristic $191 million spending binge as they moved into a new ballpark. The acquisitions raised high hopes, but the Marlins instead finished last in the NL East. The latest paring of salary actually began in July, when the Marlins parted with former NL batting champion Hanley Ramirez, second baseman Omar Infante and right-hander Anibal Sanchez, among others. Bell, the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s high-profile bust, was traded to Arizona last month. Under owner Jeffrey Loria, long the target of fan acrimony, the Marlins have usually been among baseballâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s thriftiest teams. Management pledged that would change with the new ballpark, but team officials were disappointed with attendance in 2012, and revenue fell far short of their projections. Even so, the blockbuster deal came as a shock. The players involved must undergo physicals before the trade becomes final. Giancarlo Stanton, the Marlinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; precocious slugger, wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t involved in the deal but wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happy about it. Stanton said he was mad about the deal â&#x20AC;&#x153;Plain & Simple,â&#x20AC;? he tweeted shortly after the news broke. The housecleaning was also the subject of much mirth on Twitter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Good trade, I think we won it,â&#x20AC;? tweeted FakeSamson, a site that mocks Marlins president David Samson. The swap was easier for the Marlins to swing because of their longstanding policy of refusing to include no-trade clauses in contracts. The deal gave an immediate boost to the Blue Jays, who have not reached the playoffs since winning their second consecutive World Series in 1993.


Johnson, Melvin selected managers of year NEW YORK â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Davey Johnson of the Washington Nationals, and Bob Melvin of the Oakland Athletics were chosen as managers of the year on Tuesday after guiding their teams to huge turnaround seasons. Melvin beat out Baltimoreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Buck Showalter for the AL honor in a close vote by a Baseball Writersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Association of America panel. Under Melvin, the Aâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s made a 20-game improvement, finished 94-68 and won the AL West. Johnson was an easy choice for the NL prize after the Nationals â&#x20AC;&#x201D; who had never enjoyed a winning year â&#x20AC;&#x201D; posted Johnson the best record in the majors and made their first playoff appearance. Johnson, who turns 70 in January, was honored for the second time. He was tapped as the ALâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top manager in 1997, hours after he resigned from the Orioles in a feud with owner Peter Angelos. Melvin got 16 first-place Melvin votes. Showalter got the other 12 firsts, and Robin Ventura of the Chicago White Sox finished third.

Roethlisberger has sprain PITTSBURGH â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has a sprained right shoulder, and his status for Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s showdown with AFC North rival Baltimore is uncertain. Coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday that Roethlisberger is â&#x20AC;&#x153;questionableâ&#x20AC;? and is waiting for more details on the quarterbackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s condition. Roethlisberger left Monday nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 16-13 overtime win over Kansas City in the third quarter

after getting slammed to the ground by Chiefs linebackers Tamba Hali and Justin Houston. Veteran backup Byron Leftwich filled in and completed seven of 14 passes for 73 yards. Leftwichâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s last start came in 2009 while playing for the Atlanta Falcons. Tomlin said safety Troy Polamalu remains doubtful due to a right calf injury. Polamalu hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t played since a win over Philadelphia on Oct. 7.

KU women focus on finishes By Benton Smith

Eight Kansas University women’s basketball players collected at least four rebounds in the Jayhawks’ season-opening victory over Idaho State on Sunday. But after Chelsea Gardner led the team with nine, Carolyn Davis brought down eight and Tania Jackson gathered seven, KU’s 51-39 rebound edge didn’t leave coach Bonnie Henrickson satisfied — at least on offenTOUGHER the sive end.

F — Carolyn Davis, 6-3, sr. 52-point total for the Jayhawks (ranked No. 25 in the USA Today Coaches Poll). Henrickson expects the players to have a better handle on things against the Redhawks, who lost, 69-64, Monday at UMKC after defeating Wright State in their opener on Friday. “We’ve got to play better than that and con-

trol what you can control,” Henrickson said. “I thought (the ISU game) got ugly and muddy.” Senior guard Monica Engelman said the Jayhawks weren’t aggressive enough on offense. “The first game, you kind of have the jitters, you’re kind of uptight a little bit,” Engelman said. Senior KU point guard Angel Goodrich added the team needed to “chill” at times instead of rushing things. “I think we were kind of antsy a little bit on the offensive end and weren’t selecting the right shots,” Goodrich said. “That gets contagious, because you start to rush and rush. You want to try to play together, but it just gets out of sorts.” Starting sophomore forward Bunny Williams had a rough offensive outing on Sunday. The 6-foot-1 sophomore went 1-for-8 from the floor with four rebounds, and Henrickson said she needs more from the physical frontcourt player, who missed most of her shots in the paint against ISU. “She finishes better in practice,” the ninth-year KU coach said. “She’s got a great voice. Right now she’s separated herself, but she’s gotta produce, she’s gotta play better in game and be able to knock down some shots and rebound the ball.” This is the first meeting between Kansas and Southeast Missouri St. The Jayhawks are 4-0 all time against other Ohio Valley Conference programs.

BRIEFLY City volleyball duo earn state honors Though neither had a chance to play in the state tournament, two city volleyball players earned all-state recognition from the Kansas Volleyball Association. Free State senior outside hitter Shelby Holmes was named to the Class 6A

Weis even led off Tuesday’s media session by making a plea — his third of the week already — for KU students and fans to fill Memorial Stadium when the Jayhawks play host to Iowa State at 6 p.m. Saturday. “I see our student newspaper’s well represented,” said Weis, surveying the reporters in the room. “I would expect our student newspaper would be encouraging our students to show up in force Saturday night. It’s supposed to be a beautiful night. Six

o’clock’s too early to go out. Gets over about 9:30. You know, it’s just about right. We have over 30,000 people at this school, and I think it would be really good if a whole bunch of ’em came and spent the evening with us.” There’s more to life than winning or losing college football games, and Weis knows that as well as anyone. But he has the benefit of experience on his side. For a bunch of young players with varying futures, Weis said it was his sincere hope that they understood that as well. “They’ve certainly had more than their share of negative things that have happened,” he said. “But I think if they can walk out with their heads held high,

(they’ll) be a much better down the road. ... I think they’re leaving here wellrounded young men. And when you go to school, the biggest thing that happens is you grow up. And growing up with just good things happening doesn’t really prepare you for life.” With two games left on the schedule, Weis hopes that this group has few memorable headlines to add to its scrapbook. “First of all, their experience is not over,” Weis said. “So I would like them to walk out of here with a good taste in their mouths. If all of a sudden on Saturday night all those 900game losing streaks and all that other stuff (is gone) and you’re partying

on the field after the game, that’s what they’re gonna remember. You don’t focus on bad things. You remember the good things. And there’s still a couple of opportunities for some good memories to be created.” As for the players for whom Weis is doing all this, most said they were moved but not surprised. “It just shows what type of guy he is,” senior receiver Daymond Patterson said. “For him to put this big emphasis on the seniors is a big thing, and it shows us that he does care.” Added quarterback Dayne Crist: “That’s what he’s about; he’s about his players. Always has been and always will be.”

FREE STATE’S RILEY BULLER (79) TACKLES Lawrence High quarterback Brad Strauss for a loss on Oct 26 at LHS. Buller, along with Cody Stanclift and Fred Wyatt, take turns controlling the line of scrimmage for the Firebirds’ defense.

Free State D-line imposing its will By Benton Smith

Watch Free State High football team’s three starting defensive linemen on most snaps in most games and, in some fashion or another, the same thing is bound to happen. Either senior tackle Riley Buller, senior end Cody Stanclift, junior end Fred Wyatt or some combination of the three is likely getting double-teamed. Ask each of the three Firebirds which takes on the most of the opposing offense’s attention, and they might give you different answers. But Buller makes the strongest case. “I definitely get doubleteamed the most,” the 6-foot, 215-pound nose tackle said. “Fred and Cody always complain about getting doubleteamed, but that doesn’t bother me because that’s basically what I’m supposed to do. If I’m taking the double-team, then linebackers are running free and making tackles.” Indeed, coach Bob Lisher said Free State’s defensive success (15.2 points allowed this season) has everything to do with Buller, Stanclift and Wyatt. “If we control the line of scrimmage, our defense is gonna control the game,” Lisher said. “And that’s what you’re after.” At practices, the valuable linemen at times get after each other. An openended debate exists between Wyatt and Stanclift regarding who is faster. At practice Monday, Stanclift finished ahead of Wyatt in a sprint. “I decided to call him out,” Stanclift said. Wyatt responded by winning the next one. Still, the linemen don’t tire of each other or working hard. Wyatt said all three are laid-back with one shared desire: “We all

want to get off and make plays.” Stanclift leads the group with 44 total tackles (nine for loss), Wyatt has 35 (17 for loss), and Buller has totaled 28 (three for loss). Even if they’re doubleteamed or find themselves out of position, Lisher said all three still have the athleticism to go bring down a ball carrier. Assistant coaches Brett Romme and Mike Gillman, Lisher added, have helped the linemen become fundamentally sound. Stanclift earned firstteam All-Sunflower League honors last season, Buller started for FSHS, and Wyatt played as many snaps as a starter. Lisher said that experience is paying off now as the Firebirds (10-1) prepare to face Shawnee Mission West (10-1) on Friday in the Class 6A state semifinals. “They know the angles to get to the ball carrier much better than they used to and fill in the gaps that they’re supposed to fill,” Lisher said. “As long as they’re doing their job, it makes everybody else’s job easier.” The defensive linemen know, Buller said, the rest of the defense depends on them. “A lot of D-lines are, ‘Go get the quarterback. Get upfield.’ But if we get upfield, we play ourselves out of position and get in trouble,” he said. The linemen, Stanclift added, trust the linebackers — Corban Schmidt, Keith Loneker, Blake Winslow, Stan Skwarlo and Tye Hughes — and defensive backs — Kyle McFarland, Demarko Bobo and Joe Dineen — behind them. “We can’t make a play every down,” Stanclift said. “We have to rely on our teammates, and our teammates are gonna rely on us to make plays every now and then.”

Duke holds off Kentucky The Associated Press

No. 9 Duke 75, No. 3 Kentucky 68 ATLANTA â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Seth Curry scored 23 points, and Duke held off a furious comeback by Kentucky, beating the defending national champions Tuesday night in the first match-up between the storied programs since 2001. Duke (1-1) appeared to be in control, even with Mason Plumlee on the bench in foul trouble. The Blue Devils ripped off a 13-3 run, capped by Rasheed Sulaimonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s three-pointer that made it 58-44 with 91â &#x201E;2 minutes remaining. But Kentucky (1-1) wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t done, rallying like the defending champ even though this is essentially a whole new team. The Wildcats outscored Duke 17-6 over the next six minutes and actually had a chance to tie it. Julius Mays missed a three with the Blue Devils clinging to a 64-61 lead. Curry made sure youthful Kentucky didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get any closer. He schooled freshman guard Archie Goodwin on a drive that essentially clinched the win. DUKE (2-0) Mas.

Appling’s layup ‘all she wrote’ ————

Guard scores 19 to spark Spartans to victory over Jayhawks By Jesse Newell

ATLANTA — When Michigan State guard Keith Appling received a pass from teammate Derrick Nix in the final 30 seconds with his team leading by one, he said he had one objective: get to the lane. “The offense was kind of stagnant, so I just wanted to make a play the best way I possibly could,” Appling said following MSU’s 67-64 victory over Kansas University on Tuesday at

the Georgia Dome. “When he kicked it out to me, I knew he was coming to set a ball screen. “From there, it was all she wrote.” Appling split KU defenders Jeff Withey and Kevin Young, contorting his body between them before spinning a scoop shot off the glass to give the Spartans a threepoint lead with 14 seconds left. “He did a great job of staying under control,” MSU coach Tom Izzo

said. “The left-hand layup was superb.” Earlier, Appling had hit a three-pointer over the top of Withey after the Jayhawks decided not to go over a ball screen to defend him. Appling, a junior guard,

believed that play might have freed him up for the crucial layup in the final seconds. “I knew (Withey) was going to try to close out on me a little bit harder,” Appling said. “I knew it would be a lot easier for me to go by him and get the easy basket, so that’s just what I wanted to do.” Appling didn’t just beat KU off the dribble. His game-high 19 points included perfect 3-for-3 shooting from three-point range.

Last year, Appling made just 25 percent of his three-pointers (24 of 96). “He locked himself in a gym this summer. He shot a lot more shots than he ever shot in his life,” Izzo said. “And tonight was just one night where he got rewarded a little bit. As a coach, it’s fun to see that.” The 18th-year coach Izzo, who improved to 3-1 against KU coach Bill Self during Self’s time with the Jayhawks, was happy to get to 1-1 after his team’s

season-opening 66-62 loss to UConn on Friday in Germany. “I think the good news is, we got a little bit of our pride and character back after not playing very well over there,” Izzo said. Izzo described Tuesday’s bout as a “grind it, smashmouth game.” “They didn’t play great in some areas. We didn’t play great,” Izzo said. “But, still, it was a helluva basketball game for this early in the season.”

He was open because (Derrick) Nix switched on him. He elected not to (shoot). We told Ben to go under the fade screen set at an angle (and) act like you are going to run off the fade and bump back. He didn’t really bump back. He was wide-open. He went down to the corner.” So .... “We did a down screen for Travis,” Self explained. “We ended up getting a good look. You can’t ask for a better look under those situations. We just missed it. I thought the execution on the last play was actually pretty good.” Johnson, who scored a team-leading 16 points off 6-of-15 shooting (2-for-5 from three) with two assists against four turnovers in 36 minutes, gave himself a failing grade for his direction of the final play. “It was really, ‘Take the first available shot,’” Johnson said. “I’m putting it all on me. I think I could have made a better decision with that. Coach put the ball in my hands to make a play. I feel I didn’t do a great job at it. It was a good shot (by Releford), a good look.” Self was OK with the last possession, but not the Jayhawks’ execution the final five minutes.

Michigan State outscored KU, 13-5, the rest of the game. “We didn’t run offense down the stretch. Our spacing stunk the last seven, eight minutes,” Self said. “I thought we executed our offense better than we have all year long for about 30 minutes. I thought we got the ball where we wanted to get it. We missed a lot of bunnies, too. Jamari (Traylor, six points, four rebounds, 25 minutes) missed an uncontested layup midway through the second half. He’s never been in (those) situations. He’s going to have to learn to plug himself into the game, and we have to do a better job. There were a lot of things that weren’t very good. I think it’ll be a good teaching tool for us.” KU trailed just 65-64 at :48.9 following a McLemore

drive, bucket and foul shot. However, junior guard Appling skated through the lane for a huge layup at :14. Appling scored 19 points off 6-of-9 shooting and freshman guard Gary Harris 18 off 7-of-12 shooting. Appling also hit a huge three at 1:30, boosting a 62-61 lead to 65-61. “I was late getting back. I’m usually good at blocking stuff like that,” KU big man Jeff Withey said of Appling’s layup. “He did a little pump-fake-type deal.” Releford had hit two free throws and scored off a drive, and Withey hit a hook shot in a 6-0 run that gave KU its 59-54 lead at 4:59. That’s when Harris scored consecutive buckets sandwiched around a Perry Ellis inside miss and turnover. “I think our young guys did all right,” Releford

Traylor holds his own By Gary Bedore

ATLANTA — Kansas University red-shirt freshman forward Jamari Traylor had a vicious one-handed put-back dunk of an Elijah Johnson miss, took a charge and had three blocked shots in the Jayhawks’ 67-64 loss to Michigan State on Tuesday in the Georgia Dome. He certainly held his own against Michigan State bruisers Derrick Nix and Adreian Payne. “They were very physical, just like anybody else, really,” Traylor said after scoring six points with four rebounds and two steals in 25 minutes. “That is definitely a game I think we should have won. The last four minutes, things didn’t go our way. “Physically, I guess I could go against anybody,” added the 6-foot-8 Traylor, who battled 6-9 senior Nix and 6-10 junior Payne. “I went against Thomas (Robinson) every day for a whole year. That was nothing new (vs. MSU), just regular I guess.” Nick Krug/Journal-World Photos

Florida 7-footer commits to KU By Gary Bedore

Late-blooming Cameroon basketball sensation Joel Embiid, who is currently unranked but figures to skyrocket as recruiting lists continue to be amended during the 2012-13 season, on Tuesday morning orally committed to play basketball at Kansas University. Embiid, who is listed 7-foot, 220 pounds by and 6-foot-11 by, chose the Jayhawks over Florida and Texas. A senior at The Rock School in Gainesville, Fla., he also visited Marquette and Virginia. “He’s the equivalent of a top-20 commitment,” ESPN recruiting analyst Dave Telep said of Embiid, a former volleyball player — and son of a pro handball player — who has been playing basketball just 18 months. “Conservatively speak-


ing, he’ll end up in at least the top 35-50 range,” noted analyst Eric Bossi of Embiid will sign his letter-of-intent during a Thursday ceremony at his high school. He announced his intentions to the world at 11 a.m. Eastern time Tuesday, typing the words “Proud to be a Jayhawk” on Twitter. Embiid’s commitment came a day before today’s start of the week- Embiid long earlysigning period. The Jayhawks’ recruiting class, which is ranked second nationally (behind Kentucky) by ESPN, consists of big man Embiid, plus Conner Frankamp, 6-foot, 160, Wichita North; Brannen Greene, 6-7, 200, Tift

Greene is ranked No. 24 by, Selden No. 25, Frankamp No. 30 and Mason No. 133. Embiid, who said he was blown away by the 2012 Late Night in the Phog, told ESPN that KU was the best fit. “When I was visiting schools, I wanted to go and see what they’ve got,” Embiid said. “After my visit, I knew that Kansas was good. Luc talked to some people in the NBA, and they said that the player development was good at Kansas.” Luc is Luc Richard Mbah a Moute, a fellow Cameroon native who discovered Embiid at one of his basketball camps in Cameroon when Embiid (now 18) was 16. Mbah a Moute, who played at

UCLA and now plays for the Milwaukee Bucks, encouraged him to attend Montverde Academy (Fla.), where he played basketball his junior year under the direction of coach Kevin Boyle. Playing behind 6-10 Dakari Johnson, Embiid elected to transfer to The Rock for his senior year. “The improvement he made from April to July to now was really staggering. It was like, ‘Wow, how can one kid improve this much in four months?’” Bossi said. “But he’s only been playing basketball for a little bit over a year, period. He is raw, but there is a lot to work with. “I wouldn’t really call him a shot-blocker. He’s a great rebounder. He’s got good hands. He’s got soft touch. I watched him do some skill work and do things he’s never done before. He seems to pick things up right away. And he’s hungry. He wants to

learn. He sees an opportunity to help his family out through an education or maybe one day playing pro basketball. I think he’s really driven to succeed. He’s a really interesting, fun kid.” The Rock coach Justin Harden said Tuesday: “I definitely think that Joel has every ounce of potential of what the experts say he has. When you hear Bill Self, Billy Donovan (Florida), Buzz Williams (Marquette) and other guys get excited about him, these are guys that have obviously sent players to the NBA. I’m talking about first-round picks and top draft picks, and they get excited and tell you that he can play in the NBA. “I really believe that Joel has that potential. He can go to any school and make it to the NBA, probably, but it’s a matter of, his hard work is what’s going to determine whether or not he actually makes it to the NBA.”

present a different challenge for the coach. “We’ve got a long ways to go with competing and understanding how to compete and being tougher mentally and that kind of stuff,” Self said. “It’s new to them. Our freshmen are pretty good, but they’re green and naive. They’re not the typical heralded freshmen that have had a lot of exposure and are worldly. They’ve been pretty sheltered as far as experiences, so this will be a great learning experience for them.” Ellis particularly learned the hard way, from a seat on the bench for much of it, playing for the side that came up short. That’s new to him, too. “I’m sure he was down on himself,” senior Travis Releford said of Ellis. “But it’s a learning experience. He’s never been in this pressure situation, this type of atmosphere, this big of a game. It’s just something we need to keep working on.” Ellis has an abundance of basketball talent. He cares, and he’s smart. Some day he’ll look back on Tuesday night and KANSAS FORWARD JAMARI TRAYLOR DUNKS over feel proud of how far he has put it in his rear-view Michigan State defenders Derrick Nix and Denzel Valentine, front, during the first half. mirror.


KU coach Bill Self was not despondent after the defeat. “The thing about playing a game like this, this early, somebody is going to lose,” he said. “I thought we were pretty good for 35 minutes. But games are decided in the last five. They were much better the last five. I think this was a good game for us. I am not leaving discouraged at all. I’m not happy we lost because when you are up in that situation (seven points with 12 minutes left, five with five minutes left), you’ve got to close. We didn’t close.” O

KU commit Brannen Greene, a 6-7, 207-pound wing from Tift County High in Tifton, Ga., who had basketball practice scheduled from 5 to 7 p.m., local time, Tuesday, couldn’t make it to Atlanta’s Georgia Dome to watch his future school play Michigan State. “It’s a 21⁄2- to 3-hour drive,” Greene told the Journal-World, “but it’s great they are here in the state. If they make it to the Final Four, I’ll be on it.” The 2013 Final Four will also be held at the Georgia Dome. “My goal is to win a state championship,” said Greene, who averaged 24.5 points and 14 rebounds a game last season for Mary Persons High in Forsyth, Ga., moving over to Tift County this year. Of today’s signing-day ceremony at his school, he said: “I knew I wanted to go to KU at the time (when he committed in December), and I still know I want to go there. I haven’t wavered off of that.” His dad, Jeffrey, a former Pittsburg State player, said he hoped the Jayhawks could defeat the Spartans. “I hope they have a successful time. Winning is wonderful. That’s what the Jayhawk tradition is. That’s why we are so elated to be a part of it,” said Jeffrey, who is an assistant coach at Tift County this year. “The Final Four is back this way. Hopefully they make it back and it won’t be a dead period (in recruiting) and we can visit and be in the locker room, those kind of things.” O

KU’s Ben McLemore and Jeff Withey have been named to the Naismith Award early-season watch list, the Atlantic Tipoff Club announced Tuesday. Fifty players were included on the list, which will be cut to 30 in February and four in March before a winner is announced in April.

Cornbread stuffing stands on its own Instead of salad, By Alison Ladman Associated Press

You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need a turkey to need stuffing on your Thanksgiving table. Many Americans long ago abandoned the fuss of cooking the stuffing in the bird. In addition to cutting the time it takes to get the turkey on the table, this also frees up the side dish to be enjoyed by vegetarians. But rather than simply spoon the stuffing into a casserole dish, we took it a step beyond. We spooned a delicious savory cornbread stuffing into portobello mushroom caps. The result is as attractive as it is delicious. And for do-ahead ease, you could prep these up through the stage of stuffing the mushroom caps, then refrigerating them until closer to serving.

Dinner roll a failsafe recipe By Alison Ladman Associated Press

The trouble with baking your own tender, delicious dinner rolls for Thanksgiving is that too often they fail to come out nearly tender and delicious as you hope. Experienced bakers can pull it off without trouble, but for most folks itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a game of chance. Well, we decided Thanksgiving isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t about taking chances. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about reliable recipes that deliver. Our recipe requires no kneading and little effort. You pretty much dump everything in a bowl, mix, set aside, shape and bake. It really is that easy. And the results really do deliver.

No-Knead Flax Rolls Start to finish: 2 1/2 hours (30 minutes active) Servings: 12 2/3 cup warm water 2 tablespoons molasses 1/2 cup ground flax seeds, plus extra for sprinkling 1 teaspoon salt 1 egg 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 2 1/2 teaspoons instant yeast In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine all ingredients. Mix on low until combined, then increase speed to high and mix for another 2 minutes. Remove the paddle, then cover the bowl with plastic wrap. Allow to rest for 1 hour, or until the dough is puffy. Meanwhile, coat a baking sheet with cooking spray. Scrape the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Divide the dough into 12 pieces, rolling each into a ball. Arrange on the prepared baking sheet. Cover and allow to rise in a warm place until puffy, about 1 hour. Toward the end of rising, heat the oven to 350 F. Moisten the tops of the rolls lightly with water, then sprinkle with ground flax seeds. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until golden and cooked through.

CORNBREAD STUFFING MUSHROOMS are a nontraditional twist to a traditional Thanksgiving side dish. Servings: 8 8 large portobello mushroom caps Salt and ground black pepper 2 tablespoons unsalted butter 1 small yellow onion, chopped 1 medium leek, green and white parts, sliced 1 medium carrot, grated

1 celery stalk, finely diced 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme 2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary 2 cups diced cornbread Vegetable broth, as needed Heat the oven to 350 F. Arrange the mushrooms on a rimmed baking sheet, gill sides up. Sprinkle with

salt and pepper, then roast for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium-high heat, melt the butter. Add the onion and leek and saute until tender, about 7 to 8 minutes. Add the carrot, celery, thyme and rosemary and cook until tender, about another 5 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and gently fold in the cornbread. When the mushrooms are done, pour any liquid that has collected on the rimmed baking sheet into the cornbread mixture. If the mixture is dry, sprinkle in a bit of vegetable broth. Gently mix. Spoon the mixture into the mushroom caps and return to the oven. Bake for 20 minutes, or until lightly browned on top.

try fruit/veggie slaw

By Alison Ladman Associated Press

Salads are such a vegetarian cliche, we decided to take a fresh approach to the fresh vegetable on our meat-free Thanksgiving table. Rather than a salad, we went with a slaw. Thinly sliced bell peppers and apples combine with grated carrots and chopped celery for a dish with plenty of sweet crunch. A light orangebalsamic vinaigrette brings it all together.

Bell Pepper and Apple Slaw Start to finish: 15 minutes Servings: 8 1 medium red bell pepper, cored and julienned 1 medium yellow bell pepper, cored and julienned 2 medium carrots, grated 2 celery stalks, thinly sliced

1 Granny Smith apple, cored and julienned Seeds of 1 pomegranate Zest and juice of 1 large orange 2 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar 1/2 teaspoon salt 2 tablespoons olive oil 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard Pinch of red pepper flakes In a large bowl, combine both bell peppers, the carrots, celery, apple and pomegranate seeds. In a small bowl, whisk together the orange zest and juice, vinegar, salt, olive oil, mustard and red pepper flakes. Pour over the slaw mixture and toss to thoroughly coat.

Quiche captures essence of Thanksgiving By Alison Ladman Associated Press

Los Angeles Times

Roasted Vegetable Quiche Start to finish: 1 hour 30 minutes (15 minutes active) Servings: 8 1 red bell pepper, cored and diced 1 small red onion, diced 1 small sweet potato, peeled and diced 1 medium zucchini, diced 1 tablespoon olive oil 1 tablespoon minced fresh rosemary 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper 1 prepared raw 9-inch pie crust

California red has bold, beefy flavor By S. Irene Virbila

This simple, colorful quiche is jammed with seasonal vegetables and has just enough rich gruyere to make it taste indulgent. But the most indulgent aspect of this recipe is that it can be prepared and baked the day before, meaning you have one less dish to worry about on the big day. Just pop it into a 300 F oven for 10 to 15 minutes to warm right before serving.

A ROASTED VEGETABLE QUICHE captures the spirit of the earliest Thanksgivings, which celebrated a bountiful harvest of crops that had been successfully grown. 3/4 cup shredded gruyere cheese 6 eggs 1 cup half-and-half Heat the oven to 400 F. In a large bowl, toss together the red pepper, red onion, sweet potato and zucchini. Add the olive oil, rosemary, salt and pepper, then stir to coat. Spread the mixture on a rimmed baking sheet and roast for 30 minutes, or until the vegetables

are tender and beginning to brown. Remove the vegetables from the oven. Reduce the heat to 350 F. If it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t already, fit the pie crust into a pie pan, crimping the edges as needed. Place the pie shell on a baking sheet and add the roasted vegetables. Top with the cheese. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs and the half-and-half. Pour over

Soup offers a fresh take on squash By Alison Ladman Associated Press

Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s little question about it â&#x20AC;&#x201D; butternut squash belongs on the Thanksgiving table. But that shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t lock you into the two tried, true and overdone means of preparing it â&#x20AC;&#x201D; mashing and roasting. For something a little different this year, we decided to turn our Turkey Day butternut into a rich and creamy bisque. It comes together quickly and even can be prepared a day ahead. To do so, follow the recipe except for adding the cream. When ready to reheat, do so over low heat, then stir in the cream.

We like the bisque topped with the panseared corn and cherry tomato salsa, but you also could toast pumpkin seeds and sprinkle some of those over each serving. Or even better â&#x20AC;&#x201D; tamaricoated pumpkin seeds.

Mousse cake complements vegetarian theme By Alison Ladman Associated Press

For many people, by ditching the turkey a vegetarian Thanksgiving already is messing with tradition. So thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no reason not to push things a little more and lose the pumpkin pie, too. To complement the lighter foods associated with vegetarian Thanksgivings, we decided to come up with a dessert that also leaned to the lighter side of the culinary spectrum. From top to bottom, this lemon pecan mousse cake is airy, with a refreshingly delicate sweetness.

Vary these. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re making traditional mashed potatoes, Morgan says, maybe cut your sweet potatoes into spears and roast them. Use a number of different techniques â&#x20AC;&#x201D; roasting, braising, stir-frying â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to cook your green vegetables. Instead of pu-

shape on the plate,â&#x20AC;? Morgan says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That makes for more interest than these piles of things on the plate that all appear as side dishes.â&#x20AC;? And, of course, pull out all the creative stops, exploring the different textures and properties you can coax from each vegetable. At her restaurant, Cohen often incorporates different components of a vegetable in a single dish. She adds corn and whipped corn to corn grits, makes pasta out of pureed broccoli then tops it with stir-fried broccoli, and tops a carrot risotto

with carrot chips. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You get a flavor explosion on your plate with this one vegetable,â&#x20AC;? Cohen says. And finally, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t for a minute think a vegetarian Thanksgiving somehow breaks tradition. When the settlers and the Native Americans met back at the start of all this, it was to celebrate a bountiful harvest, the crops that had been successfully grown. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s overwhelming how many great things are in season now that we can use for a beautiful vegetarian meal,â&#x20AC;? Morgan says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re celebrating. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that same celebration of the harvest of all these things that have been underground for a while.â&#x20AC;?

THIS VEGETARIAN THANKSGIVING DINNER SERVES, clockwise from bottom, squash bisque with pan roasted corn salsa, red bell pepper and apple slaw, corn bread stuffing mushrooms, roasted vegetable quiche, lemon pecan mousse cake and no knead flax rolls.

Meatless Thanksgiving is rooted in tradition, bursting with flavor By Michele Kayal Associated Press

Vegetarians have long known a Thanksgiving secret the rest of us are reluctant to admit â&#x20AC;&#x201D; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about the side dishes. Think about it. Once youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve taken the obligatory slice of turkey, a dutiful spoonful of gravy and maybe haggled a bit over the dark meat, what you really want is more stuffing. More mashed anything. More syrupy sweet potatoes. And definitely more pie. Pie of any kind. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Absence of turkey can be a very positive thing,â&#x20AC;? says

New York Times food columnist Mark Bittman, whose upcoming book, â&#x20AC;&#x153;VB6: Eat Vegan Before 6:00,â&#x20AC;? is dedicated to learning to make do with less meat. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most people have roughly 360 dinners a year that have â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;absence of turkey.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; We eat it on Thanksgiving because weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re supposed to.â&#x20AC;? But if you take the bird off the table, is it still Thanksgiving? You could go with Bittmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s preferred solution â&#x20AC;&#x201D; get an inflatable turkey as a mock centerpiece â&#x20AC;&#x201D; or follow the advice of chefs who have made vegetable cookery an art form.

Offer dishes that are rich in flavor and fat, and, if you really need an anchor for the

Smoke it, season it, batter and deep fry it. Bigger pieces of vegetable are really going to replicate the idea of a centerpiece.â&#x20AC;? Acorn squash or sugar pumpkins stuffed with wild rice or other grains, carrots, celery, onions, nuts, dried cranberries and a tiny dice

(Chronicle Books, 2012). A lasagna of sliced sugar pumpkin layered with ricotta and crumbled fried sage, she says, also offers an impressive make-ahead dish that will have you forgetting there ever was talk of a turkey.

Meatballs transform plain old spaghetti


ur familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sunday night pasta tradition is, frankly, usually dictated by my tastes, much like all the meals in this house are. I figure those are the cookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rewards. If I am going to be the one to scour the ads for good deals, make the list, do the shopping and cook the meals, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m gonna cook stuff that I like. Once in a while, though, I like to throw Mr. Meat and Potatoes a proverbial bone. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a pretty good chap, and I like to express my appreciation for his father skills and that one time when he made the bed by making dishes that he


a blog by Megan Stuke particularly likes and I particularly do not. One of those dishes that he is fond of that I can do without is spaghetti. I know, I know. Who doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like spaghetti? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s typical of me to find fault with something that for all intents and purposes is at least innocuous and at best beloved.

But hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the thing. Of all of the pasta incarnations, I like spaghetti the least. I do not appreciate the shape of the noodles. They can get slimy or sticky, neither of which is good. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find that they hold sauce as well as, say, a nice penne noodle, and the long strings are sort of unwieldy. So, usually for Sunday night pasta, I make a baked ziti or a nice shrimp penne a la vodka or maybe something with bow ties in a little cream sauce. Rarely is the long noodle the pasta of choice. But, recently, my husband must have done



something good because I decided to do a spaghetti dinner. But I found a way to make it a winwin. When is a boring spaghetti dinner not so boring? When itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spaghetti and meatballs!

Dear Annie: Recently, my husband mentioned that he wanted to get together with some friends for a project. I encouraged him to invite the guys to our home to work on it. I thought it would be a few hours, but it ended up taking well over 12. They arrived early in the morning and stayed until late that night, taking over our living room. I suggested in private to my husband that he should have wrapped things up by late afternoon. The project is for fun. It’s not like they had a deadline for work. It is also designed to continue on a weekly basis for the next six months, so committing to only a portion of the day would not have made much difference. My husband, however, didn’t feel he could ask his friends to leave before they wanted to. Would it be wise to discuss a lax but scheduled time of arrival and departure

with them in the future? I want my husband and his friends to feel comfortable in our home, but I also don’t want my house invaded for such a long period of time. — East Coast Dear East Coast: It is always wise to discuss time constraints in advance, particularly when overstaying annoys you so much. Some wives would have no objection to a 12-hour marathon. They would occupy themselves elsewhere, and this is one option for you. But please discuss

reasonable limits with your husband, allowing yourself to be the “bad guy” in order for him to ask his friends to leave when you’ve had enough. There is no point creating ill will with one’s spouse if it could easily be avoided. Dear Annie: My husband has been put on the lung transplant list, and we are praying and waiting. Please remind your readers about donating their organs. They only need to mark the back of their driver’s licenses. Many people are desperate for a lung, and my husband’s time is getting shorter. — Vermont Dear Vermont: People are also desperately waiting for kidneys, livers, hearts and corneas. We urge all of our readers to consider the gift of being an organ donor. Dear Annie: I’d like to add another take to “Not a Fan of the Big Gulp.” I agree that a Big Gulp is

probably a little over the top. However, I always bring my own canned soda to my family’s parties. You see, I am a recovering alcoholic with 24 years of sobriety. My sponsor suggested that I bring my own drink and keep it with me at all times. One can then be certain that alcohol-free drinks are neither tampered with nor inadvertently mixed with alcoholic drinks. At a bridal shower for my nephew’s fiancee, I brought my own soda. As I was leaving, my sister took me aside and told me that our niece had spiked the lemonade with vodka so people would “loosen up.” I was shocked and angry. She never considered that some guests may have been taking medication that could be lethal in combination with alcohol. — Recovering Drunk

and a return to breed and have hatchlings of their own. “DUCKumentary” also showcases a wide variety of curious duck species from all over the globe. As someone lucky enough to live on a pond, I have “owned” or at least fed many Muscovy ducks over the years. Based on that experience, I found “DUCKumentary” informative and beautiful, if a bit sanitized. The life of a duckling can be nasty, brutish and short. One is likely to be enchanted by the sight of 15 little chicks on the pond on Monday, eight or nine by Wednesday and two, one or none at all by Friday. The male ducks that survive this grisly triage can be majestic, but also violent with each other and gruesome toward the females they almost inevitably outnumber. “DUCKumentary” mentions but does not emphasize these traits, preferring a Disney version of nature. The reality is a tad closer to a Quentin Tarantino movie. Don’t miss it.
