INSIDE THE KANSAS STATEHOUSE looking up, one can view the restoration work on the dome, just part of extensive renovations to the historic structure.

Capitol makeover nears end

State education officials are recommending that Kansas schools shift to a “hybrid� form of testing starting in 2015, requiring elementary and middle school students to take new tests being developed by a multistate consortium, while giving high schools and their students the ability to decide which tests are most appropriate for them. But Kansas State Board SCHOOLS of Education members said Wednesday that they want more information before they are asked to vote on the plan next month, including the possibility of continuing to pay Kansas University’s Center for Educational Testing and Evaluation to develop and administer state assessments. The discussion came one day after the state board received a dismal report card showing student test scores declining in 2013. Please see TEST, page 7A

erhaps it is hard to believe, but the end of the construction at the Kansas Statehouse — about 12 years’ worth — is nigh. Construction is expected to be nonexistent inside the building by the new year, when work on the roof and visitor center should be wrapped up. Meanwhile, miscellaneous exterior work is expected to be finished in the spring, statehouse architect Barry Greis said. After that, the Capitol will be a finished product. “I really do hope the citizens of Kansas visit the Statehouse and see the transformation that’s occurred,� said Vance Kelley, a partner at Treanor Architects, which has led the restoration effort at the Capitol since it began. Envisioned more than a decade ago as a $90 million to $120 million modernization of the building, the project has since ballooned, with a price tag approximately three times that amount, with the addition of several large projects. The massive makeover has included everything from restoring coloring and stenciling, adding new heating and cooling systems, greater security and restroom accessibility, a new parking garage, visitor center, underground office space

The Lawrence man charged with firstdegree murder in the shooting death of his wife last week will be evaluated by a community mental health specialist to determine whether he is competent to stand trial. On Wednesday, Douglas County District Court Judge Michael Malone granted a motion filed by Larry L. Hopkins, 67, and his attorney, Hopkins Christopher Lee, requesting that Hopkins’ competency to stand trial be evaluated before setting any further hearings in the case. “Given the serious nature of the allegations, the alleged facts and the impact this ordeal has had on his well-being,� Lee said, “I think it is paramount to proceed in this fashion.� Please see SHOOTING, page 2A

Mary Jean Jones Nelson of Ft. Collins and Estes Park, Colorado, died 8 November 2013, on her 90th birthday, after two months of various health issues. She died peacefully, in no pain, under hospice care. Mary Jean, as she was known, was born 8 November 1923 on a farm near Reserve, Kansas, the second of three children born to Paul and Leona Jones. Shortly thereafter the family moved to a farm near Blair, Nebraska. Education was very important to Leona, and all three of her children completed college. The first 10 grades of Mary Jean’s education took place in a two-room schoolhouse, Mattes School District #41, near the farm. She finished her last two years at Omaha South High School. She attended the University of Nebraska from 1940 to 1944 and graduated in Home Economics. While in college, she had a variety of jobs including keeping records of dairy production, editing a monthly newsletter, and modeling clothing. After she graduated, Mary Jean moved to Seattle, Washington, for an internship in the King County Hospital Dietetic Program, looking forward to new experiences. She tried out skiing for the first time, and the driver of the car, who drove because he was the only person who even had a car, was Laurence S. Nelson Jr., a medical intern who eventually became her husband. Larry, as he was known, called her “Tiger�, and anyone who knew Mary Jean knows exactly why. In June of 1945, Mary Jean moved to Baltimore, Maryland, to work as a therapeutic dietitian in the Women’s Clinic of Johns Hopkins Hospital. It was interesting for many reasons, including the German prisoners of war who worked in the kitchen there. She and Larry married in February of 1946. Larry was called to active duty aboard the U.S.S. Iowa, and after an eventful honeymoon trip, he reported to the ship and from there the couple moved around to wherever the Iowa was stationed. After the war, they relocated to Salina, Kansas, where Larry went into medical practice with his father. The couple had three children, Lise Ann, James Laurence (deceased) and Laurence Strong III. Mary Jean was active in the community, including the League of Women Voters. She played golf and bridge, which activities she continued for the rest of her life. Larry died

concrete for a driveway and some lighting and landscape work, Greis said. Weather permitting, crews could begin those projects as early as January, he said. The price tag’s grand total was estimated to be $332 million in August 2012; more than a year later, Greis said that tab is still accurate. The building will still require routine maintenance and repairs, Greis said, but it could go another 100 years before undergoing another renovation. The roof, he said, could possibly last an additional

50 years. State Sen. Anthony Hensley, D-Topeka, who has worked in the Statehouse as a legislator since 1992, said the length of the construction was not ideal but that all the resources put into the makeover were worth it. “I think the proof in all this is the way the building looks now,� said Hensley, who was misplaced from his office for three years during construction. “It was a real outdated, dingy-looking building inside, and now things have been brought back to the original look.�

Additional survivors include two daughters; Linda (Phil) Page, Lee Summitt, Mo., and Michele (Mark) Trompeter, Lawrence, KS., a brother; Ernie Bishop, Kansas City, MO., and a sister; Ann Brewer, St. Joseph, MO., and six grandchildren. His parents and four brothers; an infant brother, Thomas, Everett, and Roy Bishop preceded him in death. Please sign this guestbook at Obituaries.

THOMAS RALPH LEO, JR. “PUT ME IN COACH, I’M READY TO PLAY!� Thomas Ralph Leo, Jr., age 82, went peacefully to be with his Lord and Savior on November 7, 2013. He was surrounded by his loving family in his home. Tom was born in Canton, Ohio on March 5, 1931. He was the son of Delores Thompson Leo and Thomas Ralph Leo, Sr. He married Neva May Thiry in Danforth Chapel on the University of Kansas (KU) campus on December 20, 1955. They had been married for 57 years. Survivors of the home include his wife, Neva Thiry Leo; and their beloved dogs, Buddy and Callie. Daughters: Vicky Lynn Leo-Timm, Lee’s Summit, MO; Tamra Ann Clark, Greenwood, MO; Debra Lee Leo (future son in law, Ward Hansen, Rockglen, Saskatchewan, Canada) of Greenwood, MO. GRANDSONS: Erik, Isaac and Noah Timm, all of Yuma, AZ. EXTENDED FAMILY includes several sisters in laws, one brother in law, many loved nieces and nephews, and several honorary daughters. Tom was preceded in death by both parents; in-laws, Clifford and Evelyn Thiry; first born grandchild, Tyler Thomas Timm; son-in-law, Kirby Clark; SISTERS: Cecelia Fernandez, Marie Bricker and Carmel Fernandez; brother, Frank Steele; and honorary daughter, Bobbi


and replacing the roof and dome. When considering all of the work that’s been planned for — and put into — the Capitol since construction began in December 2001, about 95 percent is finished, Greis said. Once the roof and visitor center are completed, all that will remain is removing a large crane, filling in the hole that was dug out for it, laying down


in July of 1964 of heart problems. Mary Jean started art classes at a local college, Marymount, and ultimately pursued a Masters and a Doctorate in Art History at the University of Kansas. In 1968, after completing her Masters, she moved to Ft. Collins to teach Art History at Colorado State University. She taught at CSU until her retirement in 1984, after which she moved to San Diego, California, where she taught a few classes and volunteered at art institutions. She moved back to Colorado in 2002. She considered the signal event of her life to be her introduction to foreign travel through a summer program at CSU. She traveled frequently after that, to many different parts of the world, and only gave it up a few years before her death. She wrote of her travels in letters to friends and family, which she collected when she returned to the States. She compiled them and letters from other trips into a collection she called “Worlds of Fun.� She worked for over 20 years on the genealogy of Larry’s and her families, and chronicled it in a volume she called, “From There to Here: a Personal History of a Family.� She also wrote her autobiography, “On Second Thought: Reconsideration of a Life.� Mary Jean is survived by two children and her sister, Paula Wehrman, of Mill Creek, Washington. She wrote her own epitaph: “Let there be no tears. Simply draw a ring of stars around my name and then forget me. The stars are for my parents, for my husband, for my children, and for the galaxy of friends I have been privileged to know and enjoy.� In lieu of flowers, Mary Jean requested that donations be sent to the Spencer Museum of Art, PO Box 928, Lawrence KS 66044. There will be no memorial service, but a social gathering is scheduled for Sunday, 8 December, at the University Club in Lory Student Center, CSU. Directions can be found at edu/university-club.aspx. Please sign this guestbook at Obituaries.

Others have expressed more frustration with the renovation. In August 2012, the Lawrence Journal-World quoted Gov. Sam Brownback as saying, “I haven’t been the biggest fan of this project.â€? Nevertheless, both Greis and Kelley said it was an honor to work on such an undertaking. “When you have a building that is probably the most well-known in the state of Kansas ‌ you’re just humbled to be involved,â€? Kelley said. — Reporter Elliot Hughes can be reached at 832-7144.


Report: 92 percent of wheat emerged WICHITA — The latest government snapshot of Kansas crops shows 92 percent of the winter wheat has now emerged. The National Agricultural Statistics Service reported Tuesday that about 64 percent of the wheat is in excellent to good condition. About 33 percent is rated as fair, with just 3 percent rated in poor condition. The agency says the harvest of other crops last week was hampered by precipitation in much of Kansas, with heaviest amounts in north-central and southeast portions. Corn harvest is 91 percent complete, and roughly 78 percent of the sorghum crop has been cut. Eightysix percent of soybeans and 70 percent of sunflowers have also been harvested.

Just Food issues challenge

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I love what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m doingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Business owner to return stolen funds

Staff reports

The Douglas County food bank Just Food is recruiting volunteers to live on a grocery budget of $3.96 a day next week to spotlight the challenges food stamp recipients face, the group announced Wednesday. To mark National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week, November 16-24, Just Food is encouraging people to live off the average food stamp benefit in Kansas for their per-day grocery spending. Those who want to take the challenge, or those who are just interested in learning more, can meet at 6 p.m. Monday at Checkers grocery, 2300 Louisiana St., in Lawrence. Those participating can shop for their weekly allotment of food at that time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;While living on a foodstamp budget for just a week cannot come close to the struggles encountered by low-income families week after week, it does provide those who take the challenge with a new perspective and greater understanding,â&#x20AC;? said Leah Charles, Just Food AmeriCorps member and organizer of the foodstamp challenge, in a news release. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We hope to shed a light on the challenges facing many in Douglas County and the urgency to provide for the needs of low-income residents.â&#x20AC;? Just Food, relying on data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, said that more than 18,500 people in Douglas County are in danger of being without adequate food. Of those, only 54 percent are eligible for food stamps, according to the group. To learn more or to sign up to participate in the challenge, go to,

PAT GLOVER, OF LAWRENCE, works on an art piece for this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Holiday Bazaar. Glover specializes in textile depictions of women from different eras. She will be one of 130 exhibitors selling handmade arts and crafts Sunday at the Community Building, 115 W. 11th St.

Textile artist joining dozens of vendors at Holiday Bazaar By Nikki Wentling

Pat Glover works in her home studio in Lawrence, making fabric sculptures three at a time. All of the sculptures are of women, each wearing clothing representing different eras. Some wear tutus, or kimonos, or the sparkly fringe dresses reminiscent of the Roaring â&#x20AC;&#x2122;20s. Glover began making the small sculptures in the mid-1980s, selling them at craft fairs and in stores. Almost 30 years later, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s making

more varieties than ever before. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I must get bored easily because I have to keep changing what I make,â&#x20AC;? Glover said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just love it. I love what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m doing, so Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve kept going all these years.â&#x20AC;? Glover will be one of 130 exhibitors selling handmade arts and crafts during the 37th annual Holiday Bazaar this Sunday. The Bazaar, hosted by Lawrence Parks and Recreation, will be held at the Community Building, 115 W. 11th St., from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

When James Bieker, a Lawrence man who owns JB Environmental Drilling, discovered that he was one of the victims of an embezzlement scheme that would eventually total more than $1.3 million, he had to spend two months working with the author of the fraud. For more COURTS than a decade, Bieker served as a subcontractor for a 52-year-old Lenexa man who this week pleaded guilty in a Missouri federal court to charges related to the scheme. Bieker said he first suspected that Robert L.

It notes that KPI President Dave Trabert also serves on ALECâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tax and fiscal policy task force. George Pearson, the chairman of KPI, has worked for years in various positions in Koch Industries, and Jonathan Williams, an adjunct fiscal policy fellow at KPI, is the director of ALECâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tax and fiscal policy task force. Trabert, president of the KPI, dismissed the reports as criticisms from groups that disagree with

KPIâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s philosophy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We probably want to get at the same place, we just disagree on how to get there,â&#x20AC;? Trabert said. Trabert said KPI was a member of the SPN, but said SPN was simply a group of like-minded people who share ideas and information. Over the years, KPI has supported elimination of income taxes, outsourcing of government services, expansion of charter schools and has argued against increases in school funding. KPI, ALEC and AFP have had dominant presences in the Kansas Statehouse in recent years, especially since Brownback took office in 2011. ALEC, based in Washington, D.C., describes itself as an organization that seeks free-market policies and limited government. But critics say the group, which is composed of legislators and business representatives, creates legislation that benefits corporations while hurting average citizens.

Before long, Fine enlisted the services of Biekerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s JB Environmental Drilling, which Bieker has owned for much of the time since he moved to Lawrence in 1986.

A guide to what’s happening in Lawrence

MOVEMENT + MEMORY At Arts Center, flamenco meets poetry in motion

By Nadia Imafidon


o Adriana Maresma Fois, anyone who passes on leaves behind poetry in memories. Through dancing, singing and even connecting with one another, Maresma Fois says, poetry can honor life’s journey. So it’s only natural that her dance company, AMFlamenco Danza, is dedicating its original “Poesía Flamenca-Flamenco Poetry” to her late mother on its five-city tour. The first stop is the Lawrence Arts Center on Saturday. “The production is inspired by the poetry my mother, Gladis, left me,” Maresma Fois says. “Her life’s essence and memories are inside my mind and heart.” The theatrical work will blend traditional and contemporary flamenco, soloist Cantaora Roco Soto and guitar with elements of improvisation.

KU alum takes long road to ‘Memphis,’ Broadway By John R. Phythyon Jr. Special to the Journal-World

Randy Adams wasn’t looking to become a Broadway producer. “Nobody goes looking for that,” he said. “No one says, ‘When I grow up, I want to be a producer on Broadway.’” But the 1980 KU alumnus became exactly that, and he struck gold with “Memphis,” the awardwinning musical, which plays at the Lied Center tonight. Set in the 1950s, the show is loosely based on the life of radio DJ Dewey Phillips, who is credited as one of the first white radio personalities to play black music on the air. The story follows a white DJ (Huey Calhoun) who wants to change the world, and a black club singer (Felicia Farrell) looking for her big break. “Memphis” earned four Tony Awards in 2010, including Best Musical, and four Drama Desk Awards. But getting it to Broadway

was a long, complicated road. “George W. George had the original idea, and he commissioned Joe DiPietro to write the book,” Adams said. DiPietro, whose other work includes “All Shook Up” and “I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change,” wanted a rock musician — someone who wasn’t a classic Broadway composer. “They went looking, and one day they got a call from David Bryan, who was the keyboardist for Bon Jovi,” Adams said. “He said, ‘I’ve read your script and I can hear every song in my head.’ They didn’t believe him at first. They were like, ‘Yeah, who is this really?’ But it was him, and they asked him to send them a sample song or two. The next day, they got a FedEx package with a CD of music in it, and the rest is history.” But there was still a lot of history to be made. Adams was the managing director of TheatreWorks

RANDY ADAMS’ “Memphis” plays tonight at the Lied Center. in Palo Alto, Calif., and in 2002 they were holding a festival of new works. The first reading of “Memphis” was part of it. “At intermission, the producer of the North Shore Music Theatre company in Massachusetts came up to us and said he loved it and wanted to produce it as part of his next season,” Adams said. “He said, ‘I’ve got to

catch a plane, so I have to leave, but I look forward to seeing the second act sometime.’” The show was produced by both companies and did well, although the early versions needed some work. But despite good runs in both cities, “Memphis” languished, and it looked like it had its day. Three years later, Adams was forming a new

company, Junkyard Dog Productions. “We had the goal of producing an original show,” he says, “but we didn’t want to wait the five years it would take to develop everything from the beginning, so we went back through shows we’d

produced before and we came up with ‘Memphis.’ I made some calls, and it was just coming out of option in spring of 2007, so we optioned it as soon as it was available and went to work.” “Memphis” played in the Fifth Avenue Theatre in Seattle from 2008 to 2009. And then Adams got the call they’d been waiting on. “They offered us the Shubert Theater on Broadway,” he said. On Oct. 19, 2009, Adams officially became a Broadway producer. “Memphis” opened to strong reviews, was nominated for eight Tonys and seven Drama Desk Awards (winning four each) and ran until August 2012. Among his other work, Adams is the president of KU Theatre’s professional advisory board. But, since earning his master’s in theater at KU, this is the first time one of his pieces has been performed on campus. “It’s my first Broadway show,” he says. “It’s kind of wild.”

BRIEFLY Willow Center gets federal grant TOPEKA — The Willow Domestic Violence Center will receive $51,764 under the Federal Family Violence Prevention and Services Act Grant Program, Gov. Sam Brownback’s office announced Wednesday. The money is part of more than $1 million in federal grants for domestic violence prevention programs statewide. “It does provide significant services,” Joan Schultz, Willow executive director, said of the grant. The money will be used for outreach and advocacy in Franklin County, a health and wellness coordinator position at the domestic violence shelter and a portion of a community engagement position that provides information about domestic violence, Schultz said. The Willow Domestic Violence Center serves more than 600 people annually, Schultz said.

371 Kansans picked insurance plans on online exchange in first month TOPEKA (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Only 371 Kansas residents selected a private health insurance plan through a federally run online marketplace during its first, glitchplagued month in operation, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services reported Wednesday. The department also said the insurance exchange had 6,061 completed applications from Kansas from Oct. 1 to Nov. 2, seeking coverage for 12,205 people. Of those people, 3,009, or 24.6 percent, were eligible to receive federal subsidies to help them pay their premiums. It was the first hard data on Kansans seeking coverage through the online marketplace, but HHS didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say how many of the 371 Kansans who selected plans had started paying premiums. The rollout of the federal website was rocky, with consumers encountering frozen screens

and problems with even getting passwords. The Kansas Insurance Department had encouraged consumers to wait several weeks to enroll in a plan so that HHS could work out glitches. People must select a plan by Dec. 15 if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re to have coverage for all of 2014. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think we are surprised by the numbers; the marketplace isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t working as expected yet,â&#x20AC;? Linda Sheppard, the state Insurance Departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health policy director, said in a statement. Republican Gov. Sam Brownback and the GOPdominated Legislature refused to set up a state insurance exchange or partner with HHS on one. Republican officials in Kansas have been strongly critical of the health care overhaul championed by President Barack Obama, a Democrat. The criticism intensified with the web-

siteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s problems and after the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest health insurer notified about 9,500 policy holders that it was canceling their coverage because their plans donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t meet new federal coverage mandates. The HHS report said of the people who sought coverage in October, 1,718 were deemed eligible for government health care coverage, such as Medicaid. The U.S. Census Bureau estimated earlier this year that 363,000 of the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2.8 million residents had no health insurance. Nationally, 26,794 people enrolled for health insurance during the first month of operations for the federal website. Adding in enrollment of more than 79,000 in the 14 states with their own websites, the nationwide number of 106,000 October sign-ups was barely one-fifth of what officials had projected.

BRIEFLY Cuts, shutdown lower budget deficit

2012. The deficit is the gap between the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tax revenue and spending. Across-the-board spending cuts and the partial government shutdown helped reduce expenditures last month, the first of the new budget year. Higher taxes and a better economy also boosted revenue.

WASHINGTON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The U.S. government started the first month of the 2014 budget year with a smaller budget deficit, signaling further improvement in the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finances at a time when lawmakers are wrestling to reach a deal to keep the government open past January. Doctors told to get The Treasury Department serious about obesity said Wednesday that the ATLANTA â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Next time deficit in October was $91.6 billion.

eral funds. The state also uses those tests, plus additional tests in science and social studies, as a basis for school accreditation. For elementary and middle school students, the department is recommending the state use a new test being developed by the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium, a group of 23 states including Kansas. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of two multistate groups that received federal grants to develop new tests aligned to the Common Core standards in reading and math. Those groups have also come under heavy criticism from conservatives who are opposed to the entire Common Core initiative, arguing that it amounts to a federal takeover of state education policy, even though Common Core was a statedriven initiative from the beginning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can see advantages politically in having CETE develop one for us,â&#x20AC;? said board member Ken Willard, a Hutchinson Republican. Deena Horst, a Salina Republican, agreed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard the same questions from legislators that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been in contact with,â&#x20AC;? she said.

But officials said that was likely the result of using old tests that will not be used again because they are no longer aligned with the way schools are teaching reading and math. The hybrid plan would give high schools the option of giving their students a standard exam or letting college-bound students use the ACT or SAT tests, while students preparing to go into technical training or straight into the work force could take exams geared more to their own vocational interests. It would complicate the task of comparing schools to one another and holding them accountable for improvement, which has been the traditional purpose behind the national testing program. But state officials say it would make the tests more meaningful to students. Deputy Education Commissioner Brad Neuenswander said the hybrid approach was preferred by an overwhelming majority of superintendents, principals, curriculum directors and teachers The role of KU throughout the state. Marianne Perie, a coâ&#x20AC;&#x153;If the priority is to compare one building to director at CETE, said the the next, everyone would center would continue to have to take the same test,â&#x20AC;? Neuenswander told the board. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But does that trump the meaningfulness and value to the individual?â&#x20AC;?

Political considerations The state board is expected to vote next month on what kind of testing scheme to adopt. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expected that state legislators will weigh in as well once they see the price tag of various options, which could range from $1.8 million to $3.3 million in additional costs each year. That would be on top of the $4.6 million per year the state would still pay KU to administer and grade the tests. Under federal law, states are required to test students in reading and math each year in grades 3 through 8 and once in high school to qualify for fed-

your weight. The medical profession has issued new guidelines for fighting the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s obesity epidemic, and they urge physicians to be a lot more aggressive about helping patients drop those extra pounds. Doctors should calculate your body mass index, a weight-to-height ratio. And if you need to lose weight, they should come up with a plan and send you for counseling. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We recognize that telling patients to lose weight is not enough,â&#x20AC;? said Dr. Donna Ryan, co-chair of the guidelines committee.

be involved in the testing no matter which option the state board uses. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because the center operates the computer network and platform known as KITE that students log into to take the tests. Currently, she said, CETE develops test questions, loads them into the KITE system and scores the tests when theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re completed. Until now, scoring has been a simple process because the state uses only multiple-choice tests. But the Common Core standards call on students to perform more complicated tasks using higherorder thinking skills. That requires more complex, technology-enhanced items on the tests, many of which will have to be graded by hand, which would involve more cost. Either way, Perie said, CETE is prepared to continue working with the state assessment program. Board chairwoman Jana Shaver, an Independence Republican, said she wants to see more specific information from KU before making a decision. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As a board, this is one of the most important decisions we have to make,â&#x20AC;? Shaver said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need every piece of relevant information when we vote next month.â&#x20AC;? Education reporter Peter Hancock can be reached at 832-7259. Follow him at

Disrespectful fans Allen Fieldhouse fans’ choice to alter the ending of the national anthem is both disrespectful and stupid.


o what’s next? “Our Father, who art in K.C.”? Repugnant fan behavior in Allen Fieldhouse needs to come to a halt with all the emphasis of a Jeff Withey block. At issue is the revival of the shameful and tasteless practice by boorish, immature student fans who shout “home of the CHIEFS” as the concluding line of our national anthem. It was particularly offensive on the Friday prior to Veterans Day, but has no place at any time. The Chiefs certainly deserve accolades. This is no way to recognize their accomplishments. No self-respecting fan of the Kansas City professional football team should tolerate the denigrating of our nation in this manner, and neither should anyone connected with Kansas University and its basketball program. This insulting behavior is even more embarrassing than the f-bomb yell that echoed on kickoffs in Memorial Stadium a few seasons back. Fortunately, that dreadful situation faded. So, it seemed, had the “Chiefs” chant in the fieldhouse, but stupidity must not have been completely eradicated on Mount Oread, because it’s back. Any blockhead who utters that moronic line deserves to be confronted, if not booted. Students should police themselves and not tolerate it. The athletic department leadership also should address it publicly and work aggressively behind the scenes to stamp it out. Surely it’s obvious that it’s more damaging to the university’s image than any tweet by any professor. Allen Fieldhouse is widely regarded as one of the nation’s top venues for college basketball. Deservedly so. KU fans also generally are as highly thought of as the coaching staff and the team. It’s time for the vocal idiots in the crowd to demonstrate some maturity so that all the fans in the fieldhouse retain their reputation for class, rather than finding themselves lumped with Missouri’s Antlers at the bottom of the spectator barrel. Rock Chalk Jayhawk! Go KU!

Immigration bill too big to pass WASHINGTON — One reason Washington makes so much bad history is that so many people here know so little history. This helps explain why “comprehensive” immigration reform is foundering: Too few of today’s legislators know what happened 163 years ago. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell does know. The most important Kentuckian since Henry Clay, McConnell knows how his hero Clay, who was called “the great compromiser,” failed to engineer Senate passage of a comprehensive compromise in 1850. McConnell, who wrote his senior thesis at the University of Louisville on the Compromise of 1850, knows that this was achieved by the canniness of Stephen A. Douglas. His is a name not much mentioned on Capitol Hill since he died in 1861 at age 48. In 1850, the “Little Giant” — he stood 5 feet 4 — was in his first term as senator from Illinois. He would win his third term in 1859, defeating the tall man who was president when Douglas died. Douglas’ great achievement — the compromises of 1850 — helped save the union by releasing steam from the sectional crisis. This delayed the Civil War — the “irrepressible conflict” — until a decade of immigration and industrialization had made the North more prepared to win it, and until two other Illinois men, Abraham Lincoln and Ulysses S. Grant, emerged.

If McConnell were majority leader, the bill would be broken into manageable bits, and there might be found a different majority coalition for each.” By 1850, the country’s sectional hostilities, fueled by slavery, had been exacerbated by the war with Mexico. As the North’s population grew and the House of Representatives became increasingly hostile to the expansion of slavery, the South focused on preserving the Senate balance of slave and non-slave states while the nation digested the land acquired in the war. The tangle of disputes concerned several matters — fugitive slaves, the slave trade in the District of Columbia, statehood for California and creation of territorial governments for Utah and New Mexico. A Texas-New Mexico border dispute and some other matters were added to the witches’ brew. Clay, depressed and ex-

hausted after failing to assemble a Senate majority for a comprehensive bill that addressed each subject, went to Rhode Island to rest. Douglas, however, proposed breaking the comprehensive bill into separate measures, which passed. He cobbled together several different majority coalitions. For a lucid exposition of all this, read Fergus M. Bordewich’s “America’s Great Debate: Henry Clay, Stephen A. Douglas, and the Compromise That Preserved the Union.” Now, consider the “comprehensive” immigration bill passed this year by the Senate, and Sen. Marco Rubio’s judgment that “if we stick to the position of all or nothing, we’re going to end up with nothing.” The bill, in the writing of which Rubio participated, is 1,197 pages long. It is 1,193 pages longer than the National Archive’s parchment copy of the Homestead Act of 1862, which is one of the most important legislative acts in American history. Passed when there were few national laws regulating immigration, the Homestead Act was designed to attract immigrants to settle the continent’s interior. Today’s Senate bill is gigantic because it deals with everything. Its size is proportional to Washington’s serene confidence that it knows everything. What should be the hourly

OLD HOME TOWN From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Nov. 14, 1913: “Eventually all public utilities will be under government control YEARS was the declaration of Hon. HenAGO derson Martin, Chairman of the IN 1913 Kansas Public Utilities Board in his address before the Woodrow Wilson Club of Lawrence last night. Mr. Martin pointed out that at present the government is controlling all actions of the big corporations and predicted the time when the actual possession of the property would be by the government.”

wage of an agricultural sorter in 2016? The Senate bill (through an explanation given on page 318) says $9.84. And the hourly wage of a worker in a nursery? Twenty cents less than the agricultural sorter’s wage. Some senators know everything. The bill also contains a remarkable geographical insight: Nevada is a border state. Your eyes tell you its southern tip is about 200 miles from the Mexican border, but the bill, which includes $46.3 billion in border security spending, decrees that Nevada is eligible for border pork. Immigration reforms should address three problems — border security (the least important problem; about 40 percent of those here illegally came on visas they overstayed), the needs of America’s workforce and the status of the 11 million here illegally. If McConnell were majority leader, the bill would be broken into manageable bits, and there might be found a different majority coalition for each. But the majority leader is a Democrat (Harry Reid from the border state of Nevada) whose party has one overriding interest — turning as many of the 11 million into voters as fast as possible. They are holding all immigration reforms hostage to this objective. Which shall be the case unless and until McConnell is majority leader.

President’s lie is undeniable Dear Mr. President: You lied. More often than anyone can count you’ve said some version of the following in defense of the Affordable Care Act: “If you like your health care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health care plan, period.” We learn now that perhaps as many as 2 million Americans cannot, in fact, do that under the new law. It requires that health insurance cover a comprehensive range of benefits, though more modest policies can be grandfathered in, provided those policies have not been significantly changed since the ACA was enacted in 2010. Anyone whose policy fails to meet one of those two criteria must get a new one. So what you said was incorrect, and that’s bad enough. You made matters worse in a Nov. 4 speech in which you claimed you didn’t say what you did. “What we said,” you told the audience, “was, you can keep it if it hasn’t changed since the law passed.” The “pants on fire” rating that you got from Politifact was richly deserved. It is hardly news that presidents lie. Bill Clinton parsed an intransitive verb to hide his dalliance with a White House intern, George W. Bush claimed he never advocated “stay the course” in Iraq, Ronald Reagan swore he never traded weapons for hostages to arm the Contras in Nicaragua, Lyndon Johnson escalated U.S. involvement in Vietnam by claiming American warships had suffered unprovoked attacks in the Gulf

The botched rollout of the ACA with its amateur-hour website was bad enough. Now there’s this.”

of Tonkin, Richard Nixon said, “I am not a crook.” But surely you understand by now that you are not just another president. You are, rather, the embodiment of a movement, Exhibit A in the argument that a new America is taking shape before our eyes. So, the rules and expectations are different for you. No one who has been buoyed by that movement, no citizen of that new America, wants to see you acting like just another president, any more than anyone wanted to see Jackie Robinson strike out at bat or Neil Armstrong stumble while stepping off the lunar lander. Is that fair? No. So what? You are probably familiar with the political axiom that one campaigns in poetry, but governs in prose. That’s true enough, ordinarily, something voters understand, if only instinctively. But the byproduct of embodying a movement is that when you promise poetry, people expect a little poetry. This latest episode amounts to torpid prose. It is worth noting that peo-

ple maintain a deep reservoir of goodwill toward you, even now. And it says something that even after three years of strident, hypocritical, extreme and often delusional Republican pounding, even after bizarre comparisons with the Third Reich and slavery, even after claims that death panels are coming after Nana, the ACA remains popular with nearly half the American public. This is something of a political miracle. But you stretch your luck beyond breaking if you think you can continue to defy gravity while absorbing both the wounds Republicans inflict upon you and those you needlessly inflict upon yourself. The botched rollout of the ACA with its amateur-hour website was bad enough. Now there’s this. An observer can only wonder what you were thinking. Did you believe the lie would not be discovered? Did you think the political gain was worth the embarrassment? Did you not know enough about the law to realize this bomb was ticking? None of those scenarios reflects well upon you. Thankfully, you have apologized and promised, albeit without specifics, to provide relief for people who now need to buy insurance despite your blanket promises. That needs to happen yesterday. Your legacy teeters here, Mr. President, Jackie Robinson waiting for the pitch, Neil Armstrong poised above lunar soil. Two words of advice: Do better. — Leonard Pitts Jr is a columnist for the Miami Herald.

To the editor: Next March, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change will release a report on the effects of global warming. Information about the report has already been leaked as reported in San Francisco’s SF Gate (“Report: Warming likely to make bad things worse,” Nov. 5). This report confirms my fears about global warming: Food and water shortages will become more commonplace, severe weather events will claim more lives and the threat of violence and civil war will be more pronounced. The article, however, ends on an optimistic note. We can prevent disasters by reducing our fossil fuel emissions. Currently there is legislation that has been introduced in the Senate which places a tax on carbon emissions and returns the proceeds to the public. The Climate Protection Act provides a market-based approach to cutting CO2 and helps consumers to see the true costs of fossil fuels. The report due out next year foretells of devastating future, but with this tax-and-rebate bill before the Senate, I am hopeful. Carolyn Micek, Lawrence

Mixed message To the editor: Lawrence is a place of contradictions. On the one hand, it claims it is eager to attract retirees. On the other, it persistently promotes projects which have negative consequences for the “mature” Lawrencian, like brick streets and sidewalks. Even the fleet of foot have to tread carefully to avoid bumps and cracks; the less nimble and the handicapped are well advised to stay at home. I appreciate the “historic” aspects of the brick surfaces, but this is not the horse-and-buggy era, but the 21st century. A few scattered stretches of loose bricks, north-south or east-west, will not bring back the past. Elizabeth Banks, Lawrence

KU FOOTBALL: Weis tries new approach, again, in effort to end slump. 3B BOWE’S A GO Chiefs announce receiver Dwayne Bowe will start Sunday against the Broncos despite his recent arrest for speeding and marijuana possession. Page 2B



LAWRENCE JOURNAL-WORLD OThursday, November 14, 2013


Jayhawks handle big stage like vets CHICAGO — I expected the word tentative to pop into my brain during the nightcap to Tuesday night’s fascinating doubleheader in United Center, but it never did. From the moment the locker room door flew open to when the celebratory basketball was tossed skyward, the young Kansas University basketball team stayed in confident attack mode, keeping seriously skilled Duke from taking control and then burying the Blue Devils with a flurry at the end. Impressive. And so was the lack of silly mistakes. Sure, it wasn’t the right time for Joel Embiid to unload a threepointer that he nearly made. Wayne Selden should have kissed a ball off the glass that he tried to dunk with one hand. Other than that, he played with the mind of a senior and the body of a middle linebacker. Andrew Wiggins has a lot of growing to do physically, but his game certainly is mature enough for the big moment, stage and opponent. Brannen Greene threw two careless passes, but he probably doesn’t have much experience. With a shot like that, his high school coach must have been tempted to bench him every time he gave it up. Fearless Frank Mason has a wicked shimmy move and a relentless passion for driving to the hoop. His jersey number, 0, represents his turnover goal heading into each game and so far he’s 2 for 2. He has not turned it over in 41 minutes. In his second college game, he scored 15 points against Duke. How many can say the same, other than Wiggins (22 points) and Selden (15)? Conner Frankamp wasn’t needed in this one, played just one minute and didn’t take a shot. There will be spots for him and when he comes on the floor, his long range will occupy the defense’s attention. Think of the talented scorers mentioned here already. And we haven’t gotten to anyone who has more than two games of college experience. Sophomore Perry Ellis is the program’s best low-post scorer since Marcus Morris, and he’ll pass him at some point. Naadir Tharpe has a knack for gathering the team at high-pressure moments. Tarik Black and everimproving Jamari Traylor infuse the team with energy and bodyguard protection. After the victory against the Blue Devils, 11th-year KU coach Bill Self lamented his team’s defensive performance and with good reason. There is not a Cole Aldrich/Jeff Withey-caliber shot-blocker and the new rules make defending the perimeter tougher than ever. But highly competitive, quick, long-armed athletes tend to figure it out, and this team is loaded with them. Plus, it has the firepower to win shootouts and the depth to withstand foul trouble. So far, Self has expanded his rotation and it’s working. I can’t imagine anyone walking out of the home court of the Chicago Bulls less bullish on KU than when walking into the arena.

KANSAS UNIVERSITY GUARD ANDREW WIGGINS sought out a big haircut, right, for Tuesday’s big game against Duke in Chicago.

Active defense leads Kansas to victory By Benton Smith

Hospitality is overrated. Kansas University’s women’s basketball team showed Wednesday night they prefer making their opponents uncomfortable at Allen Fieldhouse. After winning the seasonopener at the free-throw line three days earlier, KU earned its second victory of the young season with its defense. The Jayhawks forced SIU-Edwardsville to commit 26 turnovers and turned their foe’s miscues into 31 points in a 72-56 victory. When the Cougars wanted to swing the ball from one side to another or create a passing angle for a post player, inevitably they found a KU defender waiting to snatch the pass away or deny the lane altogether. “I thought we guarded their sets pretty well,” Kansas coach Bonnie Henrickson said of the

key to getting SIUE (0-2) out of sorts early. The Jayhawks’ activity throughout the first 20 minutes, which included a 16-0 run, led to nine steals (three from junior forward Chelsea Gardner), a flurry of deflections, two shot-clock violations by SIUE and 18 points off turnovers for KU. Gardner poured in 19 points in 24 minutes, despite sitting for a long stretch in the second half when her right ankle bothered her (she later checked back in). But she did far more damage on defense as she fronted the post, blocked three shots and made a point to deny SIUE of any easy offense. “I’m just having to move my feet more,” Gardner said, “and getting around and getting in the passing lanes like the guards are, and getting big deflections.” Offensively, the 6-foot-3 forward from De Soto, Texas, had 14 points and four

rebounds in the first half. Gardner knocked down an open baseline jumper, ran the floor for an easy transition basket off a pass from junior point guard Natalie Knight and showed she could play with physicality inside, too, posting up in the lane and hitting a short turnaround jumper. Henrickson said the game plan all along was to feed Gardner inside, and the Jayhawks (2-0) did when they could. Though the coach praised the team’s go-to post player for her great hands, touch and ability to score facing up, Henrickson said Gardner needs to use her lower body on the blocks and create space for the KU offense to meet its potential. Ideally, Henrickson wants Gardner to be the type of big Carolyn Davis was the previous four years for the KU program. Please see KU WOMEN, page 3B

Kansas University freshman guard Andrew Wiggins had his shaggy Afro clipped before Tuesday’s Champions Classic battle against Duke. It’s made inquiring minds wonder about the 6-foot-8 freshman’s motivation for sitting in the barber chair prior to such a big game. “Maybe all of the above,” KU coach Bill Self joked Wednesday on his Hawk Talk radio show when asked if Wiggins shed his hair because (A) it was such a big game, (B) the coach suggested it or (C) Wiggins’ mom suggested it. “He looks good,” Self added of Wiggins, who erupted for 22 points including four big ones down the stretch of KU’s 94-83 victory over the Blue Devils at the United Center in Chicago. “I think it’s fine either way. He’s always thought he looks like he is really, really young with his hair cut. With his hair, he thought he looked at least six, eight months older. So that’s the reason he wanted to grow his hair out, because it makes him look older.” Wiggins is 18. “I (initially) told him I think he should keep his hair, with the thinking he’ll never Please see KU MEN, page 3B

Free State football out to slow Olathe North star By Benton Smith

Kevin Anderson/Journal-World File Photo

FREE STATE LINEBACKER KEITH LONEKER (20) TRACKS Olathe North running back Venus Triplett (5), Oct. 3 in Olathe. Triplett ran for 221 yards and three total touchdowns in the Firebirds’ only loss of the season. The two teams meet again Friday in a Class 6A playoff.

The first and last name of the running back who scorched Free State High’s defense like no other this season might not have been uttered by football coach Bob Lisher in the past few days, but his players have heard the name Venus Triplett — amongst themselves or from assistants — more than they would care to. The Firebirds have nothing but respect for the Olathe North junior running back, but hearing someone say Venus or Triplett conjures up bad memories of when the explosive rusher torched them for 221 rushing yards,

a pair of touchdowns on the ground, 39 receiving yards and another TD through the air in a 26-19 O-North victory. Lisher said he hasn’t had to mention Triplett by name, as FSHS (9-1) prepares for a rematch with O-North (73) Friday at Olathe District Activity Center, because his players know just how devastating the back wearing No. 5 can be. “Obviously we’ve gotta do something different if we want to slow him down this time,” Lisher said. To that end, Triplett gets brought up at practices this week to Free State defenders more than most opposing players would. Junior

defensive end Shane Hofer said they might as well hear his name every defensive snap as they prepare for the rematch in the second round of the Class 6A playoffs. “Just about every play, he can bounce it for 70 yards and a touchdown,” Hofer said of Triplett, who rushed for 1,237 yards and 20 touchdowns in the regular season. “Our goal is to keep him under 100 yards, because it’s really hard to stop him.” The Firebirds have heard most about the elusive runner’s cut-back ability, once he reads the blocks in front of him.

Chiefsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Bowe to start against Denver KANSAS CITY, MO. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Dwayne Bowe deftly avoided the locker room full of prying TV cameras, finally emerging onto the Kansas City Chiefsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; practice field Wednesday as if nothing was amiss. The former Pro Bowl wide receiver spent the rest of the afternoon preparing for Sunday nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s AFC West showdown against Bowe the Broncos, a game in which heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll start despite a weekend arrest for speeding and possession of marijuana. Chiefs coach Andy Reid said that he intends to let the legal situation run its course, but he made it clear that Bowe will be in the starting lineup for the unbeaten Chiefs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are rules and regulations put in place and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll abide by the rules and regulations, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll make sure we

Williamsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; agent, Wynn Silberman, said Williams would fly to Kansas City to join his new team and be reunited with his former San Francisco teammate, quarterback Alex Smith. The Chiefs said they released wideout Chad Hall to clear roster room.

Kershaw won the prize as the National Leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best pitcher for the second time in three seasons after leading the majors with a 1.83 earned-run average. The 25-year-old lefty with a big-breaking Kershaw curve drew 29 of 30 firstplace votes from members of the Baseball Writersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Association of America in results released Wednesday. Adam WainScherzer wright of the St. Louis Cardinals was picked first on one ballot. Kershaw went 16-9 and topped the NL with 232 strikeouts. He won the NL Cy Young in 2011 and finished second last year. Scherzer won the AL honor after leading the majors in wins while going 21-3. He received 28 of 30 first-place votes.


Briles, Baylor agree on deal A person familiar with the deal tells The Associated Press that Baylor coach Art Briles has agreed to a new 10-year contract. The new contract goes into effect after this season, according to the person who spoke on condition of anonymity because the private university does not release contract details. The fourth-ranked Bears are 8-0 for the first time in school history, and fifth in the BCS standings. Briles is in his sixth season at Baylor, where he has a 41-30 record. Briles is 41-30 at Baylor, which is 8-0 for the first time in school history and the only undefeated team in the Big 12. The Bears are fifth in the BCS standings and have won a school-record 12 games in a row. Brilesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; fast-paced spread offense has turned Baylor into a national title contender this season. The Bears are averaging 61 points per game, on pace to break a major college football record.

distraction I have caused the team this week.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Due to the nature of the pending matter, I am unable to make any further comment on the situation,â&#x20AC;? Boweâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s statement said. According to police, Boweâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wallet was discovered along with two containers that held about one-third of an ounce of suspected marijuana. Bowe was cited for speeding and possession of a controlled substance. He posted $750 bond and faces a Dec. 18 court appearance. Kevin Regan, an attorney for Bowe, said Bowe is innocent and â&#x20AC;&#x153;we look forward to clearing his good name at our earliest opportunity.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;He is grateful for the support shown by Chiefs fans and promises this incident will not be a distraction to his commitment to excellence on the football field,â&#x20AC;? Regan said. The Chiefs were off last week before beginning their preparations for Denver. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I addressed him, had that

opportunity to talk to him, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll leave it at that,â&#x20AC;? Reid said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are laws, rules and regulations, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll leave it at that.â&#x20AC;? Reid did say that Bowe has been a model teammate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dwayneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a team player since Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been here,â&#x20AC;? Reid said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to bring any problems to the table. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not what he wants to do.â&#x20AC;? It is unlikely Bowe will be disciplined until after his court date. While the Chiefs are barred from disciplining the former Pro Bowl wide receiver for violating the leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s substanceabuse policy, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell in the past has handed down one-game suspensions and fines of an additional game check for similar cases. Bowe, who signed a five-year, $56 million deal in the offseason, has struggled to live up to the expectations that come with being one of the gameâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best-paid wide receivers. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second on the team with 33 catches for 369 yards and two touchdowns during the Chiefsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 9-0 start.

leaves around Lawrence changed from green to red, the Kansas University football team saw its 2-1 start and hopes for a winning season turn into a 2-7 struggle courtesy of six consecutive losses to Big 12 powers. With three games remaining in 2013, and qualifying for a bowl game no longer in the picture, KU coach Charlie Weis this week is implementing a few changes that he hopes will alter KU’s path and help the Jayhawks finish the season on a winning note. “Routines can be good and routines can be bad,” Weis said earlier this week. “We are trying any little thing that you could use just to try to do something different.” That’s not to say Weis has not been trying all season. He’s tried ev-

KU women

— Kansas University football coach Charlie Weis erything from rearranging the depth chart on a semi-regular basis to putting players into new positions, moving freshmen into key roles and opening up his offensive game plans to input from the coaching staff. Some efforts produced positive results and others only provided momentary relief from the drain and pain of losing. This week, Weis reworked the structure of KU’s practices. Instead of interweaving offense, defense and special teams drills on Tuesday, the Jayhawks focused entirely on first- and second-down offense and defense, leaving special teams out the equation entirely. “One of the reasons is

(when) you go to the special teams portion of practice, there’s a lot of guys involved in that and some guys are not involved at all,” Weis said. KU then mixed in extended time on Wednesday working on the core special teams units. “I think there’s been a lot of good stuff that goes on during the week,” Weis said. “What we have to do is a better job of carrying over the classroom to the field and from the practice field to the game field.” The rewrite of Tuesday and Wednesday’s practice schedule may seem small, and, more to the point, may not actually change the outcomes. But the players don’t mind. And, like their coach, they’re at

senior running back James Sims said. “He’s putting everything he has into this week, picking the tempo up and making sure everyone is not so down and ready to bounce back and finish these three games strong.” Weis wouldn’t have it any other way. “When you lose and you accept it, that’s never a good thing,” he said. “I think that anyone who’s driven, when things don’t go well, you’ve got two ways to handle it. One way (is to) say, ‘Oh well.’ And the other way is you try to find another way to do it. I’m always looking for that other way. I don’t know that ‘Oh well’ philosophy very well. That doesn’t fit my mentality.” The Jayhawks host West Virginia at 11 a.m. Saturday in Memorial Stadium.

Terriell Bradley, 5-9 point guard from Timberview High in Grand Prairie, Texas; and Chayla Cheadle, guard from Rock Bridge High in Columbia, Mo. “It’s a group that has tremendous athleticism and ability to score,” Henrickson said.

Kelly Oubre Jr., a versatile 6-foot-7, 200-pound shooting guard/small forward from Findlay Prep High in Henderson, Nev., on Wednesday signed a letter of intent with Kansas University on the first day of the week-long early signing period. Oubre, who is ranked No. 12 overall in the Class of 2014 by, committed to KU on Oct. 8. He chose KU over Kentucky and Florida. “Kelly had an unbelievable spring and summer and really worked hard to elevate his national ranking,” KU coach Bill Self said. “He has great length but is a true wing. He can play either guard slot, the two or the three, and maybe some emergency point. He’s very skilled, explosive and what we like most about him is his toughness. We think he will be able to compete at this level from a toughness standpoint from day one.” Oubre was born in New Orleans, moving to Richmond, Texas with his dad, Kelly Sr., in fourth grade in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. “Kelly comes from a great program at Findlay,” Self said of Oubre, who has averaged 23.0 points and 7.4 rebounds per game in Findlay’s first five games of the 2013-14 season. “He’s been coached by Jerome Williams, who is an ex-NBA player and has really helped Kelly a lot. “Coach (Norm) Roberts did a great job recruit-

“That right there kind of showed a lot of what Andrew is made of,” Self said. “The shot he made was a hard shot, but it is his shot. Perry made the play definitely. Andrew had a great finish and Jabari (Parker) had his fifth foul. “The thing I like the most,” Self went on, “is the excitement level of our kids after he (Wiggins) made the play (dunk). Those kids had fun last night. Sometimes when you are young and don’t really know anything, you put yourself in a situation you act cool or act like the stage isn’t too big. The kids did that a little bit, but when the game was on the line, there were some happy kids out there playing. It was fun to watch. I love to see them play with more of their personality each and every game as opposed to being this stoic-type figure. I thought it was good they showed that.” O Late to bed, early to rise: KU’s players didn’t get to sleep until between 5 and 5:30 a.m., Wednesday. The return charter flight from Chicago was airborne two hours after scheduled departure time. “There was some kind

of communication error between our bus and TSA (Transportation Security Administration) officials and so we got to the airport (from United Center) and one of the buses had to return to the arena,” said KU associate AD Jim Marchiony. “Everybody had to get re-screened. I don’t know all the details. We had gotten screened at the arena before we got on the bus. It’s why we had to go back. The TSA official was at the arena. We got re-screened and the TSA official went back with us to the airport. We got on the bus and took off a little before 3.” “Everything is good. It was a short night as everybody on our trip found out how important TSA is at the airport,” Self said of the travel delays on Hawk Talk. O Fab freshmen: Eighty NBA scouts were on hand for Tuesday’s doubleheader that included Michigan State topping Kentucky, 78-74. They came mainly to see freshmen. Kentucky freshman Julius Randle had 27 points off 9-of-14 shooting (9 of 15 free throws) with 13


“Where she’s got to grow is to work early like Carolyn did,” Henrickson said of Gardner. “We talk about score before the catch. With Carolyn, she always worked early and by the time she caught it, she was in a 70-percent catch area. (Gardner) isn’t there yet.” KU picked up another offensive boost from junior guard Asia Boyd, who scored 10 of her career-high 18 points in the first half and converted four of her five threepoint tries. After KU led easily at the break, 36-20, Boyd knocked down backto-back threes — one from the left corner and another from the right wing — early in the second half to keep the team rolling. “I felt pretty good,” she said following her second career start, “so I just kept shooting the ball.” Kansas finished with 16 steals (six from sophomore guard Lamaria Cole) and five blocks, and held SIUE (0-2) to 38.6-percent shooting. Said Gardner of the defensive effort: “I think we all have to come together as one and just have a lot of energy in order to get those steals.” Cole set new career-best marks with eight points, six steals and five assists. Freshman guard Dakota Gonzalez went 3-for-7 off the bench for six points, and senior guard Marki-

do what the coach wants him to do, so he’d want to cut it,” Self stated. “Maybe I shouldn’t have told him that, because he said, ‘OK, coach, if you think I need to keep it.’ “There was some consultation basically (before Chicago trip): ‘Are you sure you want to do this (leave it long)? You are going to cut it over Christmas. Why don’t you get it cut now if you are going to cut it anyway?’” Self said when Wiggins arrived for a team meal with short hair ... “I’m serious. I didn’t recognize him at all. I said, ‘Who is that? That’s a good-looking kid.’ ‘“That’s Andrew,’” Self was told. “Since he played pretty well, especially down the stretch, I think he’s probably OK with it.” Wiggins hit a step-back jumper that stretched KU’s lead to 85-81 with 1:30 left in the thriller vs. Duke. After a Perry Ellis steal and pitch ahead, Wiggins downed a dunk 14 seconds later to make it 87-81.

ing Kelly and his father, Kelly Sr.,” Self added. “We think Kelly has a chance to impact our program in a way that very few freshmen have. He’s very well rounded. He’s an outstanding student, and we all believe and know he will be a tremendous addition to our program.” Oubre, who averaged 22.7 points a game his junior year at Richmond’s Bush High, played for USA Basketball in October in the Developmental National Team Mini-Camp in Colorado Springs, Colo. “I was up (at KU) a couple days. I could see the brotherhood they have. I see how in coach (Bill) Self’s program, they are all for it. They treat everybody like there’s nothing bigger than the team, even the guys who are one-anddone. Nobody is bigger than the program,” said Oubre Jr., who visited KU for Late Night in the Phog. KU, which has two scholarships available in recruiting (those of senior Tarik Black and certain one-and-done Andrew Wiggins) is in the running for three players who will announce their decisions on Friday. They are No. 1 Jahlil Okafor, 6-10 from Chicago’s Whitney Young High; No. 4 Cliff Alexander, 6-8 from Chicago’s Curie High; and No. 5 Tyus Jones, 6-1 from Apple Valley (Minn.) High. Jones and Okafor have said all along they will be choosing the same school. It’s believed they are down to KU and Duke. Alexander has a final four of KU, Illinois, Memphis and DePaul. His girlfriend attends KU.

KU’s Wiggins had 22 points and eight rebounds; Wayne Selden 15 points, six rebounds and four assists; Frank Mason 15 points, no turnovers; Joel Embiid five assists, seven rebounds, two points; Brannen Greene, five points. “I talked to several NBA guys today,” Self said Wednesday. “I didn’t see much of the first game. The second game was a great game. I didn’t think it was the most artistic. They (NBA scouts) were raving of the quality of the players and the games this early in the season. It made me feel pretty good, because I know our guys stuck it out and performed pretty well. We haven’t been performing consistently great at all. We did get excited to play. It will be a teaching moment to know if we are geeked up and energized what this team can potentially do if everybody is on the same page. It was a great starting point.” KU will next meet Iona at 7 p.m., Tuesday, in Allen Fieldhouse.

ways a bad idea to begin a relationship with dishonesty. Word is likely to get back to your fiancee, so you must tell her first. Don’t make excuses for your behavior. Take responsibility, tell her you are deeply sorry, and ask for forgiveness. Say that you understand she is disappointed and hurt, and that you will give her as much time as she needs to think about your future together. We hope she decides to give you another chance, and that you will be worthy of her trust.

Weirdness abounds on ‘Adult Swim’ Home to many purposefully ridiculous live-action series, the Cartoon Network late-night programming bloc “Adult Swim” presents “Eagleheart: Paradise Rising” starring Chris Elliott (11 p.m.). Elliott may be the granddaddy or at least the weird uncle to the strange series that abound on “Adult Swim,” including “Squidbillies” (midnight) and “The Heart, She Holler” (12:15 a.m.). Elliott produced and performed in odd little films during the early days of David Letterman’s run on NBC. He starred in the truly memorable early Fox series “Get A Life” (1990), just recently released on DVD. In “Life,” he was a 30-something slacker working as a paperboy, still living with his parents (comedian Bob Elliott, Chris’ real-life father, played his dad) who raised him in a “Leave it to Beaver” atmosphere. In “Eagleheart,” he’s U.S. Marshal Chris Monsanto, a man on a mission set against the agency’s dark history, hints of alien invasion and intimations of the apocalypse. It’s “Walker, Texas Ranger” meets “The X-Files.” And Martin Sheen shows up too! ‘‘Eagleheart” producers include Conan O’Brien, who hosts Elliott on his talk show tonight.

Fans of “Lost” have waited years for a show as strange, compelling, mystifying and addictive. It’s arrived, and it’s called “The Returned” (8 p.m., Sundance), now in its third episode. In case you’ve missed it, this French miniseries takes place in a beautiful, if oddly blank, mountain village where people, long dead and buried, have returned to take their place among the living. But don’t go looking for the gross-out zombie antics of “The Walking Dead” or “American Horror Story.” These individuals return intact and with no knowledge of their demise. And that’s what makes their attempts to reintegrate with people who have already grieved for them all the more painful and poignant. Tonight’s Other Highlights

Dear Annie: I have been disabled for several years. I have a hip problem and arthritis in both legs, so I need to use the handicapped toilet stall because of its higher seat and room for mobility. I use a cane to get around, so it’s obvious I have a hard time walking. There are times when I need a wheelchair. You would think that Jill Q. Public would be courteous, and in most cases, they are. However, I have encountered women who let children play in the handicapped stall for a halfhour and, once, a young woman who specifically wanted that stall even though there were others available. I even have been shoved aside because of the race to get in. Just because I move slower doesn’t mean my need isn’t as urgent. Please, ladies, life


For Thursday, Nov. 14 This year your creativity surges; however, every once in a while there could be a lull. Your intuition comes through in all ventures, especially risky ones. If you are single, you could find it challenging to find a match who is on the same wavelength, but you will have fun dating. If you are attached, you seem to have a sixth sense about your sweetie. The stars show the kind of day you’ll have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult Aries (March 21-April 19)  You see a situation differently from how others see it. What has been hazy could become crystal clear through others’ actions. Tonight: Get into weekend mode. Taurus (April 20-May 20)  You could be more aware of what a friendship offers you as opposed to your idealistic dreams. Reality can be harsh at first. Tonight: Get some R and R. Gemini (May 21-June 20)  Aim for more of what you would want, and treat it as though others are not actively making requests of you. A boss or parent could reveal a new side of him- or herself that you need to acknowledge. Tonight: Out and about. Cancer (June 21-July 22)  You are in a position to take action, but a question remains unresolved in your mind. Think about what you want. Tonight: Get extra work done. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)  You’ll see a partner in a new light. You might feel as if a veil has been dropped, and you can see the real person now. Tonight: Out on the town.

is challenging enough without this kind of rudeness. Consider how you would want to be treated if you were in my shoes. — Vermont Reader Dear Vermont: We cannot understand how anyone would deny the use of a handicapped stall to someone who requires it. Please don’t be reluctant to speak up if someone grabs that stall while you are waiting. Here’s the rule: The handicapped stall may be used by an ablebodied person provided no one needs it, no other stall is available and you will be quick. When you can wait for a regular stall, please do so.

Dear Annie: I am madly in love with my ex-fiancee. We have been separated since March but have been talking about getting back together and starting a family. The problem is, while we were separated, I slept with another woman. It happened at a weak point in my life, and I don’t plan to do it again. Now the other woman says she is pregnant. I have asked for proof, but she hasn’t provided any. We did use a condom, but it broke. Should I tell my almost-fiancee or wait until I have physical proof?

Freshman lifts KSU over ORU Foster finally hit a 3-pointer to end ORU’s opening salvo. He hit another 3 moments later, and scored 10 of his 16 first-half points during a 14-1 spurt that gave Kansas State an 18-17 lead with 7:17 remaining in the first half.

The Associated Press

Men Kansas State 71, Oral Roberts 63 MANHATTAN — Marcus Foster struggled in his college debut, right along with the rest of his Kansas State teammates, so Bruce Weber pulled him aside after a morning shootaround Wednesday. “I just told him, ‘Relax. Enjoy it. Worry about what you can control,’” Weber recalled. Once he hit his first basket, Foster certainly looked at ease. He went on to hit four 3-pointers and finished with 25 points, helping the Wildcats bounce back from a humiliating loss to Northern Colorado with a victory over Oral Roberts. It was the most points scored by a Kansas State freshman since Michael Beasley had 25 against Texas A&M in the quarterfinals of the Big 12 tournament on March 4, 2008. “Marcus is a good player. We were very fortunate to get him,” Weber said. “We kind of sat back, just laughing, when people didn’t have him in the top 100. We couldn’t figure it out.” D.J. Johnson added 12 points and Will Spradling 10 for the Wildcats (1-1), who struggled early on against the Golden Eagles (1-1). They finally found their rhythm early in the second half, then made enough plays in the closing minutes to put them away. Obi Emegano, a transfer from Western Illinois, scored 24 points to lead Oral Roberts. Utah transfer Shawn Glover scored 15 of his 21 points in the second half.

ORAL ROBERTS GUARD KOREY BILLBURY, BACK, REACHES for a rebound over Kansas State guard Marcus Foster (2) during the first half on Wednesday in Manhattan. Kansas State defeated Oral Roberts, 71-63, for its first victory of the season.

After a poor shooting performance against Northern Colorado, the Wildcats bounced back to shoot 50 percent from the field. They were paced by Foster, their star freshman, who was 9 of 12 and 4 of 5 from beyond the 3-point arc. “Give K-State credit, and give Marcus Foster credit,” Oral Roberts coach Scott Sutton said. “He was terrific. He hit big shots all night long.” There were once again plenty of whistles as the teams tried to adjust to more-stringent enforcement of hand-checking fouls. Kansas State and Oral Roberts were both in the bonus with more than 10 minutes left in the first



half, and the double-bonus early in the second half. Emegano spent most of the night at the foul line, going 12 for 15. “With the new rules, that’ll play to any driver, so stay aggressive knowing the refs are going to call it and call it close,” he said. “We try to minimize our jump shots and take it to the cup and try to get a foul or a bucket.” The Golden Eagles, coming off a season-opening win over Tulsa, roared to a 16-4 advantage midway through the first 20 minutes. The Wildcats didn’t hit a field goal until there was 13:12 left, and had more turnovers (four) than baskets (three) through the first 12 minutes.

ith the change in temperature, there are certain foods that just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t satisfy â&#x20AC;&#x201D; or â&#x20AC;&#x153;hit the spot,â&#x20AC;? if you will â&#x20AC;&#x201D; like they did in warmer months. This is the time of year for warm and hearty goodness: comfort food that will leave you not only satisfied, but fully warmed and prepared for an afternoon nap. And isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it just fancy that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve recently welcomed to town a new restaurant that specializes in ramen? Ramen Bowls opened in late September and the timing couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have been more perfect. Specializing in Asian fusion/Hawaiian/Japanese cuisine, Ramen Bowls has a selective listing of complex ramen dishes along with starters and rice dishes. Now I have to admit, beyond the ramen packets Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d eat as meals in college (yep, the 25-cent packets, you too?) Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m hardly familiar with the art of ramen. With this in mind, I was hoping to find a dish that would introduce me to the depth of the cuisine. I noticed Haole Ramen is described on the menu as a way to â&#x20AC;&#x153;ease into traditional ramenâ&#x20AC;? and took that as a sign. Noodles served in chicken/fish broth with pulled chicken, carrots and spring onions is hard to beat. My partner had more specific interests and ordered the Seafood Ramen complete with shrimp, mussels and scallops topped with roasted garlic and veggies. While waiting for our order to arrive, we admired the refurbished interior space and swell of activity within it. Ramen Bowls occupies two levels: the lower level is lively with the bustle of the open kitchen and ramen bar, while the upper level offers a more quiet dining experience. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a cozy space, meant for quick dining. It may have been less than 10 minutes when our dishes arrived, piping hot. Ramen is served with both a sipping spoon and chopsticks (forks are also available, if you have

chopstick phobia); with tasty broth and foot-long noodles, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll need all the utensils you can manage to consume this specialty. Dinner got pretty quiet after that. Well, with the exception of the slurping. In fact, Ramen Bowlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; tagline is â&#x20AC;&#x153;Get your slurp on!â&#x20AC;?, and because it seems nearly impossible to enjoy ramen without slurping, suffice it to say we were having an excellent time. The ramen was rich in flavor and satisfying. Though I must forewarn you: the helpings here are huge! The prices are excellent for the quality and amount of food. Our meal was $30.82 (including saki and an Izze drink), $36.02 after tip. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m certain Ramen Bowls will become a quick favorite during the cold winter months. When your bones are chilled and you need to feed your soul, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll know what to do: get your slurp on! â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Jessica Pauly, aka Mrs. Mass., gives her thoughts on shopping, urban living and whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new in Lawrence in CheckOut weekly and on her blog,

hrysanthemum blooms can be found throughout the year, but their long flowering season and cool weather hardiness make them a very popular fall decorating mainstay. Typically referred to as mums, these tropical flowers are second only to the rose in popularity and have over 1,000 genera and 20,000 species. With a little know how, it is easy to keep mums blooming year after year.

Step 1: Over-winter potted mums by placing the pots in a cool, but protected area such as a garage or basement. If temperatures will drop below freezing in the storage area, place the pots on stacks of newspapers and surround the pots with crumbled paper to help protect them from the cold. Remove dead blooms, but leave the foliage intact until the spring. Water the plants monthly. Step 2: Mums that are planted in the ground should be covered with 4 to 8 inches of mulch. Dry leaves or straw works well for this. Leave the foliage intact, but pinch off dead blooms before covering. Step 3: In early spring, before the weather warms, uncover the mums and cut back the dead foliage. Water the mums thoroughly. Step 4: If desired, transplant potted

mums to a sunny spot with well drained, fertile soil. Spread one inch of a rich soil and compost mixture at the base of each plant. Step 5: When new growth appears, begin fertilizing the mums with a standard plant fertilizer. Water and fertilize on a regular schedule. Step 6: To create full blooming rounded plants for the fall new foliage and spring buds will need to be pinched off on a regular basis until mid-summer. Pinch away new buds whenever a good number have appeared. Begin pinching plant stems when foliage is 4 to 6 inches tall. Pinch the top 1 to 2 inches of each new stem and continue to do so with every 3 Mums add a big pop of color. to 5 inches of growth until mid-July. Step 7: Continue watering chrysanthemums on a regular basis, but stop fertil  izing the plants by the first of August. Step 8: Additional mums can be planted in the ground up to six weeks before the first hard frost. Step 9: To keep pests and diseases at bay, mums should be uprooted, divided and replanted in new freshly prepared bedding areas every three to five years. Transplant mums in the early spring after the last hard frost, but before they start growing.

GARDENVARIETY Keep your yard looking beautiful

ust as I was ready to hibernate with the remote control and the football schedule, it dawned on me that there were a few important, if not critical, plays to run in the garden game before the end of the fourth quarter. The clock runs out when the first hard freeze sounds the buzzer. Lawns, part 1: The final mow. One last time this season, call in the ground crew. Mow at the recommended height for the last gasp of grass growth and to mulch up the layer of leaves that has accumulated. There is no need to rake or pick up the leaves if you are using a mulching or side-discharge mower. In fact, you are just adding organic material to the soil and repositioning the nutrients you already have. I do pick up some of the last cuttings for my compost bin, but only if I’m feeling energetic. Lawns, part 2: The second fertilizer application needs to be made in November. The first was made in September, around the time we reseeded or aerated. The rate of application is still the same: 1 to 1½ pounds of actual nitrogen per 1,000 square feet. We need not use a fast-release fertilizer this time. This application is what will jumpstart the new growth in the spring.

The moment we relieve them of their starting position, they get out of shape and start to die. Our job now is to prolong the final moment till recruiting season.

Need to get away for the holidays? Try the B&B that’s just down the road BY NADIA IMAFIDON

Peaceful Getaway: The Halcyon House For 28 years, the Halcyon House has been providing a charming and warm escape for couples, visiting professors, business associates and Kansas Athletics fans (and even Lawrence residents) looking for a special getaway without having to travel far. Opened by Esther Wolfe in 1985 (the house itself built in 1885), the Downtown Lawrence haven has been going strong since the start. “We’ve had people start with Esther in ’85 and they still come,” says Karen Doue, the business’ current owner and manager. The property is still owned by Wolfe and her daughter. “We’ve watched some of their kids go through school, and you hate to see them go away, because they don’t come as often after they have kids.” Doue has hosted people from all over the world and all walks of life, reserving a room, or sometimes the entire house, whether it’s a couple of women who want to spend the weekend shopping in Downtown Lawrence, or a group of nine couples participating in a marriage counseling/renewal seminar (think Tyler Perry’s “Why Did I Get Married?”).

Karen Doue is manager and owner of the Halcyon House Bed and Breakfast, 1000 Ohio St. The large, two-story open kitchen and dining area is a centerpiece and important gathering place for residents. Mike Yoder/Journal-World Photo

Historianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Retreat: Runaway Pony Located at 6th and Tennessee, Runaway Pony Bed & Breakfast is a beautiful Victorian house restored by owner and avid preservationist Serina Allison. Allison has been involved with the restoration of 20 Victorian homes in Lawrence, planning everything from room dimensions to color schemes,

and discovering the historical background of each property. Before restoring houses, she was a fashion designer in London, having studied at St. Martinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s School of Art. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can walk into a house and know what it should look like,â&#x20AC;?

During Quantrillâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Raid in 1863, pro-slavers sacked Lawrence and had planned to kill Sands and his two neighbors, B.W. Woodward and Dr. A. Fuller, and burn down their homes. Freddie the pony created a distraction while escaping and led the murderous group away, saving the lives of these three men and their homes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love history,â&#x20AC;? Allison says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It seems Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m always giving a history lesson to my guests on Sunday morning over breakfast. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my favorite part.â&#x20AC;?

A double dose of style for women

weater season has always been our favorite out of all the style seasons. We long for sweater weather all throughout spring and summer. Who knew that cozy knits in every fall shade imaginable could be a detriment to my bank account? We tend to hoard sweaters in the fall and winter. We just canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to get enough of them. Each season they are designed with new, updated versions that are impossible to resist. Our quest for designer-inspired sweaters is continuous in order to avoid the $200-plus price tag. Thankfully, there are budget-friendly options that we found in a cute little boutique called Envy on Mass Street. Every store around this time of year will carry cute and cozy sweaters, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the price tag you need to watch out for. Sweaters are considerably more expensive than other pieces because of the construction and the excess fabric. Speaking of fabric, a sweater that has an itchy feel could quite possibly be the worst feeling in the world. Any ounce of itchiness- and that sweater is tossed right back on the rack. You can overlook the itchy feeling and wear a long sleeve undershirt, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s usually not worth it. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d rather spend our money on something that is stylish and

fully comfortable. Even if you see the cutest sweater ever, the second you feel the fabric thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a coarse uncomfortable feel â&#x20AC;Ś move on! Now, back to our sweater finds from Envy. A sweater isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just in the form of a top. There are sweater dresses, sweater leggings, sweater vests and the list goes on. Envyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assortment includes all of these wonderful sweater-inspired pieces. We found a trendy tribal printed sweater dress with long sleeves and a fitted silhouette. We layered a mohair solid black cardigan over the dress for more coverage from the cold and threw on a pair of neutral fall boots. We like the combination of tribal print and solid color because it gives the look just the right amount of contrast without too much chaos. This is a super comfortable fall outfit that can be worn for a day of shopping or even in a more casual work environment. The second look embraces the layering style of fall. We chose to do three layers with a chambray shirt layered under a sweater, and we topped it off with a parka-style jacket to again combat the cold. Basic skinny jeans and lace-up boots tie it all together. If you havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t checked out Envy yet, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d advise you to do so for trendy fall and winter finds that wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t leave you with a case of buyerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s remorse. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Emily and Elizabeth Kennedy are twin sisters and fashion bloggers who share a blog called Fashion Column Twins.

Ed Demasio Sadie McInery

CLOTHING DETAILS: Dress, gift from my mom’s friend; Bait shoes, $60; tights, $5, Target; jacket, trade at Arizona Trading Company.

Age: 17 Hometown: Lawrence Favorite subjects: I really like my AP Literature and Composition class because I like having discussions in school. I’m a student at LHS. I also like my “teaching as a career” class because we get to learn about different styles of learning. Favorite hobby: I’m in Paper Buffalo! I can’t describe our music but it’s a really fun band to be in. We just won “Best New Band” in Lawrence. Dream job: If I could be unrealistic and in a fantasy world, I would be a cloud designer. I like art. But in real life, I would like to write grants for educational purposes; I really want to be involved in education. What were you doing when scouted? At work at the Cider Gallery. Describe your style: It’s a mix and match of current and vintage styles. I draw a lot of inspiration from Japanese styles, but I don’t go that crazy. Fashion trends you love: I like seeing people that wear “out there” stuff and that take risks. It’s not a trend, but I like outfits that you immediately notice and that are different. Fashion trends you hate: I don’t hate anything because people are allowed to wear anything they want. Fashion influences: I see a lot of fashion on Tumblr and also through my mom. I would just come home and she would just hand me a dress that’s really cool. When she was a teenager, her style was a lot like mine so she has some vintage stuff she has given to me. Whom do people say you look like? I never had anyone tell me that I look like anybody. What type of music do you unwind to? I know everyone says this, but I really do listen to every genre. Lately, I’ve been listening a lot to Pizzicato Five. They’re kinda like Cibo Matto. But the weirder the music, the better! Tell us a secret: I don’t style my hair!

s temperatures drop and daylight is in shorter supply, we fight back: We crank up the heat in our homes and turn on lights earlier and earlier. And yet we also want to keep our heating and electric bills as low as we can. Can you keep your home warm and inviting all winter while still conserving energy?


Maxwell Ryan, founder of the popular home décor website, is a designer. John Colaneri, co-host of HGTV’s “Kitchen Cousins,” is a construction expert who builds and remodels homes. Both offer identical pieces of advice about staying warm while conserving power and saving money: Swap out your old incandescent bulbs (and those swirly compact fluorescent bulbs, too) for the new Cree brand LED bulbs. “They can last longer than 10 years and they use 84 percent less energy than incandescents,” Ryan says. “They also are dimmable” and give a warm-looking light — a big change from the energy-saving compact fluorescents. “If you do the math on the LED,” he says, the bulbs save you so much on electricity that they pay for themselves within a year and then last about nine more years. Colaneri and Ryan also both advise homeowners to replace old thermostats with new Nest brand models. “They take 30 percent off your bill each month,” Colaneri says. “And they look very high-tech and cool to display.” Nests are programmable “learning thermostats,” which means they track your habits and adjust accordingly. They also connect via Wi-Fi to check weather reports online, and you can control them remotely from an iPad. EMBRACE UPHOLSTERY

Warm, cozy upholstery fabrics work on a practical level by holding your warmth when you touch or sit on them. But Ryan points out that they also work visually: A room full of soft, warm fabrics will give you a psychological sense of warmth that adds to your enjoyment. So add thick throw blankets to chairs and sofas, and swap out silkcovered pillows and even lampshades for ones covered in thicker, nubbier fabrics like muslin and burlap. Ryan also recommends using thick curtains in winter. A decade ago, he says, “curtains were considered fusty and old-fashioned and expensive.” But with so many beautiful, inexpensive curtains available today, they’ve become popular again. Besides adding color or a bold pattern to a room, curtains also block cold air that might leak in around windows. And they muffle sound from outside, which Ryan says helps make rooms feel more insulated in winter. “Curtains,” he says, “aren’t just for your grandparents anymore.”

To ensure the outdoor living space of his mountain house stays warm and welcoming during the colder months, designer Brian Patrick Flynn chose woven blend upholstery for his seating, a wool and acrylic blend indooroutdoor area rug, and throw pillows and blankets to keep guests feeling cozy.

ing. “Many times homeowners have outdoor fireplaces built, but there’s only enough room for a small table or two chairs. What’s the point, people? The whole idea is to gather and stay cozy outdoors,” Flynn says. He suggests planning “at least 12-by-14 feet of space around the front of the fireplace to ensure a sofa and loveseat as well as a coffee table and end tables will fit.” LAY DOWN RUGS

Gleaming hardwood or tile floors are lovely in spring and summer. But in cold weather, add a thick rug or swap out a thin one for something heavier. This will not only warm your feet, but also change the look and sound of your space. “When acoustics are dampened,” Ryan says, “the room feels warmer.” An outdoor rug can have the same impact. “Thick outdoor area rugs are made of acrylic/wool blends,” Flynn says. “The wool feels great on your feet and definitely locks in warmth.”


Crackling flames in an indoor fireplace can change the feel of a room instantly. And outdoors, they bring a welcome infusion of heat and light on a winter evening. “Outdoor fireplaces are increasingly more and more popular, coast to coast,” Flynn says. “They’re not all that much of an expense like an outdoor kitchen would be.” If you’re building a new outdoor fireplace, leave ample room for seatCheck Out | Lawrence Journal-World

This last tip, shared by Maxwell Ryan, comes from a conversation he had years ago with home décor guru Martha Stewart. She advised him to run his ceiling fans backward in winter to push warm air back down along the walls of the room. If you don’t have ceiling fans, Ryan suggests adding one or two for energy savings and added comfort year-round.
