‘So much more than I bargained for’


Rental units in city would be subject to inspection By Chad Lawhorn

The home, which has undergone various additions and renovations, sits at 1734 Kent Terrace — near 23rd and Iowa streets — and is believed by many to be the oldest in Lawrence.

ometimes a house will just steal your heart. About 30 years ago, Shelley Hickman Clark’s heart crossed the threshold at 1734 Kent Terrace and was had. “When we came to look at it for the first time, it was 8 o’clock at night, and I hadn’t even really seen the house,” Clark recalls. “I hadn’t even walked upstairs, but I walked through the door and just said, ‘This is my house.’” As the years began to pile up, it seemed that the house began to talk back. No, this isn’t a ghost story — I don’t think — but Clark always felt that something odd was going on whenever she entered a small room on the backside of the house. It’s not really big enough to be a living room, and it’s not really ornate enough

to be considered anything grand. And yet, there always was this feeling when Clark entered it. “It always felt like the heart of the house,” Clark says. “I always felt like I had settled somewhere. I don’t know how that is, but I’ve always had the feeling that when I’m in there, I’ve arrived.” A few years passed

Nativity has graced shopping center roof for more than 50 years By Giles Bruce

On the Hillcrest Shopping Center roof the other day, Peter Dahl used liquid nail adhesive to reattach the head of a 75-pound fiberglass camel. He then returned the animal to its proper place, next to one of the three wise men. These Nativity statues have required a lot of stitching up and repainting over the years, though that’s understandable, given that baby Jesus and friends have

graced the roof of the Lawrence strip mall for more than a half-century. “I’ve had to patch these things up so many times it’s amazing,” Dahl said on a chilly afternoon on the roof at Ninth and Iowa streets. “The wind does a number on them.” Still, the life-size figures have survived vandals, snowstorms and would-be thieves Richard Gwin/Journal-World Photo to be a Lawrence tradition peter dahl putS up the Nativity Tuesday at the Hillcrest shopping since the late 1950s. “For us Center at Ninth and Iowa streets.

Topeka — When Lisa Clark lifted her left leg several inches off the ground for the first time since the accident, her beloved Tally was there to see her do it. You might call it a coincidence that she accomplished this feat while her 8-year-old boxer, a certified therapy dog, was sitting nearby. But Clark and her loved ones might disagree. The dog’s ability to help people through challenging times is why Clark, who teaches first and second grade at Lawrence’s Schwegler School, introduced therapy dogs to the local district about 20 years ago. She’s seen them comfort students suffering from conditions like anxiety, cerebral palsy and autism. Now things have come full circle, as those same dogs help her recover from a serious spinal injury. Clark was riding horseback near Clinton Lake in early October when her horse stepped into a hornet’s nest and “started bucking like a rodeo horse.” “Luckily, I was wearing my helmet,” said Clark, 58.

work on sixth st. continues lawrence l Construction is scheduled to continue at the intersection of Sixth and George Williams Way. Construction includes work on the existing median and the addition of a traffic signal. The second phase of this project, which began Oct. 28, will close right-lane traffic in all directions. The anticipated completion of the project is Nov. 27. l On Nov. 19, a traffic signal installation began at the Kansas Highway 10 and U.S. 40/Sixth Street interchange in West Lawrence. Project work includes the installation of traffic signals at the interchange ramps and new permanent pavement markings. Crews will complete project work during daylight hours, Monday through Friday, with some occasional Saturday work. Traffic impacts will include flagging operations through the interchange, both on U.S. 40/Sixth Street mainline lanes and the adjacent K-10 ramps, at varying intervals throughout the project. Drivers should expect delays of up to 15 minutes and are encouraged to use alternate routes if possible. The overall scheduled completion date for the project is mid-January 2014, weather permitting. l Utilities crews will continue a water-line project on Highland Drive, from Oxford to Harvard. There will be no parking and the road will be closed to through traffic from Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. l Because of the renovation and expansion of the Lawrence Public Library, there are intermittent closures of the street in the 700 block of Vermont or Kentucky when crews need to unload materials for construction. South lawrence trafficway l Earlier this month, a three-year construction project began to complete the six-mile, four-lane Kansas Highway 10/South Lawrence Trafficway freeway. The project will move existing K-10 onto a new alignment that will begin at the south junction of the U.S. 59 and K-10 interchange and reconnect with existing K-10 in East Lawrence. Construction work on the project will be completed in phases. Each phase includes specific work, and advance notification will be sent under separate cover for each phase of construction, including planned traffic impacts. Emery Sapp & Sons Inc. (Columbia, Mo.) is the primary contractor on this expansion project with a total contract cost of $129.8 million. The overall scheduled completion date for the project is Fall 2016.

PAIGE RADAK, 6, OF OMAHA, NEB., browses through magnets and pins at the annual Adornment Holiday Art Show and Sale at Van Go, 715 New Jersey St. on Saturday. The show continues today from 1 to 5 p.m.

Van Go kicks off holidays with art show and sale By Nikki Wentling

Workspace inside Van Go, Inc. was transformed into a gallery Saturday night for the 15th annual Adornment Holiday Art Show and Sale. White lights twinkled overhead as a hundred or so people wandered through the room, observing the art before the show began. Last night’s event served as the opening to the art sale, which will last

through Dec. 23. “The apprentice artists spent a solid eight weeks producing the art you’ve seen around the room,� said art instructor Rick Wright. “They’ve learned some new skills and honed some that they already had.� Van Go is an artsbased social service agency that offers employment opportunities for high-needs or under-served 14- to 21-year-olds in Douglas County. One of

the agency’s programs pays qualifying teens for making art 10 hours per week, and another allows 18- to 21-yearolds to sell art on commission. The annual holiday event serves as the one sale Van Go holds each year, and is one of its main fundraisers. Before the sale began Saturday, 27 apprentice artists were introduced. “I came in with very little work experience, absolutely no artistic

experience and rockbottom self esteem,� said 20-year-old apprentice artist Lily Robinson. “But that’s the thing about Van Go: They challenge you. I went from being someone who never finished anything to staying late to work on projects. Van Go gave me control.� For the remainder of the night, apprentice artists showed off their work to their Please see VAN GO, page 4A

William Elliott was one of only a handful of people to race through a doctoral degree in Washington University’s social work program in three years. He certainly didn’t do it for fun, and he says he is no genius or superstudent either. He did it because his past told him the future is always uncertain, and he didn’t want to get caught with a pile of student debt and no degree to show for it. “I always felt like I can’t trust tomorrow,� he said. “My experience has always been: Something’s gonna happen, and I might not fin-

‘Shop Small’ event brings holiday traffic downtown By Stephen Montemayor

The spotlight shifted Saturday from Black Friday’s deal-seekers lining up at the city’s big box stores to the locally owned shops that have long lined the streets of downtown Lawrence. Small Business Saturday, a nationwide effort to promote local shopping initiated by American Express in 2010, kicked off Saturday morning at the US Bank Plaza at Ninth and Massachusetts Streets. White and blue “Shop Small�

stickers dotted the windows of businesses downtown, each seeking attention from visitors, among whom included a “cash mob� of shoppers pledging to spend at least $20 downtown. Carolyn Richmond can talk about the challenges facing small businesses, having opened Fortuity, a retailer with a location at 809 Massachusetts St. (and another in Manhattan) three years ago after she and her oldest daughter, Ellie, then a Kansas University freshman, Please see SHOPS, page 5A

the poor and middle class, as well as the solution that might be found in lifelong student savings accounts. Elliott is also the founding director of the KU Assets and Education Initiative, which has put out research on how student loans might affect the wealth gap between rich and poor. A November report from the group, which Elliott wrote with Melinda Lewis, a KU associate professor of social welfare, points out that college students without debt have nearly three times the lifelong net worth of students who borrow to pay for college. Student borrowers also have 41 percent less home equity than their debt-free peers, save less for retirement and often carry their student loan debt into retirement age.

Van Go

The upshot of all this is that federally subsidized student loans for college, created in the mid-20th century to help the poor get a leg up in the economy, help perpetuate a wealth disparity between rich and poor and make it harder for lower income students to capitalize on their college education. And the specter of debt burdens might keep many lower income people from going to college in the first place. Elliott himself carries more than $100,000 in student loan debt. He also grew up poor. His family went through multiple periods of homelessness when Elliott was growing up. Those early struggles went a long way toward shaping Elliottâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s research interests. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re that kind of poor for that many years, it just affects your mind in ways you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really shake,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The way you see the world is different than others who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

have those experiences.â&#x20AC;? Elliott dropped out of high school and did missionary work, trying to help others who were unemployed or with few resources, before getting his GED and eventually earning a bachelorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in philosophy from Geneva College, a Christian liberal arts college in Beaver Falls, Pa. Elliott joined the military to help pay for law school, but moved around for training and assignments so often he couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t complete it. He ended up in Washington Universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s George Warren Brown School of Social Work. Elliott came out of school in a relatively good position â&#x20AC;&#x201D; with debt, but also with a high-caliber degree from a good school and a faculty position at a major research university. Not everyone who enters college and the student loan system can say the same, and that concerns Elliott. Higher income students and their parents can often make stu-

dent loans work for them, where others are permanently slowed in their trajectory through economic life if they take on student loan debt. For Elliott and his colleagues, the idea of reorganizing student aid to help students and families save for college is a way to change the expectations students have about college. And it could prepare them not just for college but also a lifetime of savings and asset collection â&#x20AC;&#x201D; even if at modest levels, on low incomes. And that, Elliott thinks, could help close the wealth gap. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you have assets, people treat you differently. You have a certain sense about yourself,â&#x20AC;? Elliott said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you have some money in your pocket, you can negotiate in a way that you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t otherwise, so youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re empowered.

her back, cracked a vertebra, punctured her lungs and broke her ribs. She was taken by LifeFlight to Kansas University Hospital, where surgeons operated on her spine for approximately eight hours. A few weeks later, she was transferred to the Kansas Rehabilitation Hospital in Topeka, where, ever since, she has been doing intense physical therapy for four hours every weekday. Before going into surgery, she asked Angie Rexroad, a fellow therapy dog handler whose boxer works with students at Schwegler, to take care of Tally because Clarkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s husband travels for work. That also meant Rexroad could continue to bring Tally to school. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the only place Rexroad now takes Tally.

Bringing smiles On a recent day at the Topeka rehab facility, Rexroad walked her own dog, Rex, and Tally into the gymnasium where Clark was doing therapy. The sight of the dogs put instant smiles on the faces of patients who were clearly in pain. A woman sitting in a wheelchair near the entrance called Tally over and started petting and kissing her. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tally has a friend today,â&#x20AC;? said one of the physical therapists. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty well known here,â&#x20AC;? Rexroad remarked. Rexroad walked Tally and Rex over to Clark, prompting her to crack a smile, about the only movement she could muster above her neck, which was outfitted with a brace. The dogs sat by as Clark tried to teach her muscles how to move again. Clark tried to stand up with the help of a walker. She finally did it on her second try, but a few seconds later fell back to the bed, complaining of leg spasms. She tried again, appearing to concentrate on every breath while her physical therapists massaged her knees and back. She stood up longer this time, but eventually had to sit back down, looking pained and exhausted. Tally panted and looked out the window.

Years ago, at the suggestion of her veterinarian, she began training them for another Kansas school district as well as the statewide service-dog organization. Clark worked with the dogs from the time they were puppies, bringing them to Schwegler during the school day.

thought Massachusetts Street needed more retail options. Soon, Richmond said, she found Lawrence to be welcoming for a niche boutique. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lawrence is different because it pulls people in from surrounding areas,â&#x20AC;? Richmond said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always something going on in Lawrence, which makes our sales in December terrific.â&#x20AC;? On Saturday, Fortuity also collected unwrapped toys for Toys for Tots in exchange for store gift cards. During the rest of the year, Richmond said, the store donates to area churches and charitable events. To Richmond, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an example of how a local shop can be better suited to returning money to its community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wish people were aware of this 365 days a year,â&#x20AC;?

LISA CLARK, WHO INTRODUCED therapy dogs to the Lawrence school district, greets therapy dog Tally during a rehabilitation session in Topeka. Clark was recently injured in a horse-riding accident.


I love seeing my dogs. You see them and you can forget for a little while.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Lisa Clark Once they were ready, she would give them to their new handler. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She can take a puppy and fall in love with it and be OK with giving it to someone in much more need than she is,â&#x20AC;? said Rexroad. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in a situation where she needs Tally.â&#x20AC;? Clark got Tally eight years ago to be a full-time service dog at Schwegler. Tally and Rex, who is 4, help students with special needs, as well as kids who are just having a bad day and need a pick-meup. The canines provide â&#x20AC;&#x153;unconditional love,â&#x20AC;? as Rexroad says, with the children kissing and hugging them and taking them on walks during recess. Christy McWhirt, a second-grade teacher who has taught across the hall from Clark for the past nine years, says students and teachers alike love

Clark. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing how many people stop by and ask if Lisaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s OK,â&#x20AC;? she said. Friends recently sold â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lisa Strongâ&#x20AC;? T-shirts to help offset the costs of making Clarkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home wheelchair accessible. Clark still hopes she can return to teaching. The next six months to a year will determine a lot, since thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s generally the amount of the time spinal injuries take to recover. Either way, her beloved Tally will be by her side, helping lift her spirits. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love seeing my dogs,â&#x20AC;? Clark said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You see them and you can forget for a little while.â&#x20AC;? Not only does she miss her canine friends, but sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s having an equally hard time being away from her students. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One little boy wrote me a card. He remembered this little saying the children and I developed last year,â&#x20AC;? said Clark, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been taking his words of encouragement to heart. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He wrote in the card: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll try. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll do my best.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;?

Economist challenges idea of aging farmer crisis By David Pitt Associated Press

DES MOINES, IOWA â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Agriculture economists have long warned that farmers are getting old and staying on their land longer, delaying the turnover to a younger generation. But an Ohio State University professor argues that those fears are overstated and the United States likely will have little problem replacing aging farmers as long as business is good, as it has been for the past decade. Others arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t so sure, saying while they agree with OSU agriculture economist Carl Zulaufâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assessment that concerns about the unquestionably aging farmer population remain valid and create uncertainty about who will produce the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

crops in the future. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think what he said is absolutely right,â&#x20AC;? Iowa State University economics professor Mike Duffy said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think the conclusion heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drawing though is not necessarily the correct one.â&#x20AC;? Zulauf contends that just like in the 1970s, farm prosperity will draw more young workers into farming. And prosperous the business is: This year, net income from U.S. farms is expected to reach a record $131 billion. Farm wealth has also reached record levels, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, with farm asset values rising 7 percent this year to a record $3 trillion. On average, farmers are about 15 years older than the broader U.S. workforce, Zulaf said, but noted in his October report that

EARL HAFNER TALKS about growing vegetables on Nov. 21 in his aquaponics greenhouse on his farm, near Panora, Iowa. Programs have been set up in many states to connect young farmers who want to get into agriculture with aging farmers to promote transition planning. this age difference hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t changed since the 1980s and that the average age of farmers is increasing at the same pace as U.S. workers generally.

USDA statistics in 2007 showed that for each farmer under 25, there were five who were 75 or older. In Iowa alone, Duffy said, landowners

who were older than 75 owned 28 percent of the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s farmland in 2007, compared with 24 percent in 2002 and just 12 percent in 1982. Duffy believes itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s essential to pay attention to the transition of farms from one generation to another, saying the catch is enabling those young farmers with programs and policies that help people with few assets and little access to land to get a chance to farm. Land prices throughout the Midwest have soared in the past decade, largely due to strong prices for corn and soybeans, with the average value in the U.S. this year rising 9.4 percent to $2,900 per acre. Iowaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s average farm real estate value increased 20 percent this year to $8,400 an acre. And farm implements, such as tractors, combines

and grain bins, are often pricey, with a new combine costing upward of $350,000. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It takes a while to acquire that capital usually by saving or through inheritance,â&#x20AC;? Zulauf said in an interview. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t typically happen until people have passed a fair number of years as a working adult to get to that stage.â&#x20AC;? A common occurrence is passing on the family farm to the next generation, much like Earl Hafner, 67, is doing with his 2,000-acre farm about 45 miles west of Des Moines. The goal is to transition ownership of the farm assets, which began in the early 1990s, to his son by the time Earl Hafner is 70. For his part, Zulauf is aware of the difficulties in transitions, but is looking to keep the problem in perspective.

Schluben, 44, had pledged to run a marathon every weekend for a year to raise money for two charities. The Gobbler Grind wrapped up 1,362.4 miles of running â&#x20AC;&#x201D; work that raised almost $30,000. The charities he is helping are Sunflower House in Shawnee, a child abuse prevention center, and Surviving Spouse and Family Endowment Fund, also known as SAFE, which raises money to support the families of police officers, firefighters and paramedics who die in the line of duty.

Then, they offer to come and remove the birds for a $10 donation. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;penguin ninjas,â&#x20AC;? as the group has come to be known, will spend the money on gifts for children being assisted through the Salvation Armyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Angel Tree program, The Garden City Telegram reported.

Biden to show U.S. focus on Asia WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s up to Vice President Joe Biden to show that the U.S. effort to realign its gaze toward Asia hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fizzled out. Biden is set to arrive Monday in Tokyo on a weeklong trip to Asia, which is watching carefully to see how committed the Obama administration is to increasing Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s influence in the region as a hedge against an increasingly assertive China.

Tension rises in Thailand

ANTI-GOVERNMENT PROTESTERS try to remove police barricade during a rally in front of the Department of Special Investigation on Saturday In Bangkok, Thailand. Anti-government protesters in Thailand placed symbolic padlocks on the doors of several state-run offices, continuing a week-long campaign to paralyze the administration of Yingluck Shinawatra. Tensions began to rise Saturday after pro- and -anti-government groups clashed in northeastern Bangkok and unidentified gunmen shot and killed two people. At least 45 people were injured in the clashes.

BRIEFLY Talibanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s former No. 2 released KABUL, AFGHANISTAN â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Pakistanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prime minister said Saturday that the recent release of a senior Taliban leader shows he is committed to helping bring peace to Afghanistan. Nawaz Sharif said after meeting in Kabul with Afghan President Hamid Karzai that an agreement had been reached to allow members of an Afghan peace council to continue talks with Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, who was released from Pakistani detention last September. Sharif did not elaborate. The Talibanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s former No. 2 was set free after years in detention and some officials hope he can help jumpstart the peace process, while others have their doubts as many other insurgents who have been released by Pakistan are thought to have returned to the fight. An Afghan delegation met with him in recent days, officials said, the first such encounter since his release. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mullah Baradar has been released. We discussed this matter at length today and we jointly have agreed on a mechanism and we will see it is properly implemented, and anybody who is sent by the president to Pakistan to talk to Mullah Baradar, we will carry out the instructions given to us by the president and make sure that such meeting takes place,â&#x20AC;?

Karzai, however, said in a statement released by his office after the meeting that he had asked for Baradarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;full release,â&#x20AC;? indicating that the former insurgent was still under Pakistani supervision.

Health care website on track with fixes WASHINGTON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Obama administration says it will meet its self-imposed deadline of fixing the troubled health care website so that 50,000 people can log in at the same time starting late Saturday. Yet questions remain about the stability of the site, the volume of traffic it can handle and the quality of the data it is delivering to insurers. Round-the-clock repair work since HealthCare. gov went live on Oct. 1 has produced fewer errors, and pages are loading faster. But the site still wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be able to do everything the administration wanted, and companion sites for small businesses and Spanish speakers have been delayed. Still, the White House hopes a website that is at least operating more smoothly after weeks of bad publicity about its troubles will mark a fresh start for Obama and the signature domestic initiative of his presidency.

Kansas aqueduct project faces challenges By John Milburn Associated Press

TOPEKA â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Aside from the potentially billions of dollars it could cost to divert water from the Missouri River to western Kansas, the negotiations among interested parties would make such an infrastructure project a daunting task. States along the river depend on water for agri-


creep,â&#x20AC;? Mayor Mike Dever said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You start assuming duties that were never intended. We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let that happen here.â&#x20AC;? For example, the program is meant to ensure that rental units meet minimum safety codes â&#x20AC;&#x201D; working smoke alarms, good electrical wiring, proper ventilation and the like. But what happens if a building inspector sees a bag of marijuana on a dining room table or drug paraphernalia or some other item that suggests illegal activity? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think there is an obligation that if inspectors see something they believe is illegal â&#x20AC;&#x201D; while they are not the judge or the jury â&#x20AC;&#x201D; it is appropriate to talk to a supervisor about it,â&#x20AC;? City Manager David Corliss said. Corliss said he could envision some types of information leading to a follow-up visit by police, but he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think that would be common. Corliss noted that the city has been inspecting a limited number of single family rental units for more than a decade, and privacy issues havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been identified as a problem. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we have a good track record with the existing ordinance, and

culture, industry, municipalities and navigation, beginning at the headwaters in Montana and extending to the confluence with the Mississippi at St. Louis. Officials say getting all those interests to sign off on a project to that would divert 4 million acre feet of water for western Kansas will take time and effort. John Grothaus, chief of plans formulation for the

U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, said despite potential challenges to a project the potential size of the Kansas aqueduct that it was good to consider new ideas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a complicated system to operate for and serve all constituents up and down the system. Water problems are not getting any easier across the county,â&#x20AC;? Grothaus said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The hurdles on something like this can be pret-

ty high, to say the least.â&#x20AC;? The study will update one completed in 1982 that proposed building a 360mile aqueduct from near White Cloud in northeast Kansas to a location near Utica in western Kansas. The cost was pegged at $3.6 billion to build the system, which would include pumping stations and collection reservoirs. Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback has made water policy

weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to insist that happen with this one,â&#x20AC;? Corliss said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to. It is not an option.â&#x20AC;? Commissioners will consider approving the new rental licensing and inspection program at their 6:35 p.m. meeting on Tuesday at City Hall.

permission from the tenant for each photograph needed to document a code violation. Livingston said he thinks tenants should have the right to opt out of the inspection program. He said some tenants may find a violation of their privacy more troublesome than any health and safety code violation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing this for tenant safety,â&#x20AC;? Livingston said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If the tenant doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want their unit inspected for life and safety issues, they should be able to decline that.â&#x20AC;? As it is currently configured, if a tenant declined to sign the consent form, the city could get an administrative search warrant.

door and saying weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to do an inspection now, there would be a lot of concern on my part too,â&#x20AC;? Schumm said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re talking about. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re talking about making an appointment to do an inspection.â&#x20AC;? How that appointment process will work isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t clear. Corliss said he believed the expectation would be that inspections would be scheduled â&#x20AC;&#x153;hours, if not days, in advance.â&#x20AC;? But the city has created a list of administrative procedures for the proposed program, and they do not provide details on how inspections would be scheduled or what type of notice would be given to tenants. City Commissioner Mike Amyx said he wants to make sure such details are written down and the public has had a chance to consider them before the program is approved. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had better think long and hard about all of this,â&#x20AC;? Amyx said. Amyx, a landlord for five rental units in the city, said he has a host of concerns about the proposed program, and privacy issues are among them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want people to have quiet enjoyment of their homes,â&#x20AC;? Amyx said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to disturb people anymore than we have to.â&#x20AC;?

Tenant choice The proposed rental registration and licensing program essentially would cover every rental unit in the city, and as a result, city inspectors would conduct substantially more inspections. Russell Livingston, a Lawrence resident and landlord, said he thinks the increased scope of the program is likely to erode the privacy rights of tenants. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There will be some kid out there who gets charged with marijuana possession or a bong or whatever because of this program, and then they wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get to go to law school or something like that,â&#x20AC;? Livingston said. Livingston is particularly concerned that the city will be asking landlords to get tenants to sign a citycreated document that gives consent for the city to enter the apartment and to take pictures and digital images inside. Livingston said city inspectors shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be given such wide authority but instead should have to get

Commissioners mixed City Commissioner Bob Schumm said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not interested in violating anyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s privacy, but he does think the licensing and inspection program can do a lot to improve the safety of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rental housing stock. He said property inspectors wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be searching under sofa cushions or digging through drawers, for example. He doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think the concern of inspectors becoming another set of eyes for law enforcement is likely to happen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we were talking about just going up and knocking on someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

a focal point of his administration since taking office in 2011 while the state was in the throes of a severe drought. He convinced legislators to approve new water restrictions that sought to promote conservation in western Kansas and extend the life of the Ogallala Aquifer while sustaining a multibillion dollar agriculture industry. An advisory committee, along with the Kansas Water Office and

other related agencies, are developing a 50-year vision for extending the life of the aquifer. Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon has already let Brownback and Kansas know his state doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like the idea. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to talk with Brownback about future use of the river but said in a letter to Kansas that neither state was â&#x20AC;&#x153;wellservedâ&#x20AC;? by a diversion project.

ran a rental licensing and inspection program for about two years until it was repealed by its city commission in 2011. Livingston began highlighting some of the potential privacy concerns after he read a 2011 Manhattan city memo about how Manhattan officials had approached the rental inspections. That memo noted property inspectors had received some training from the Riley County Police Department. But Brad Claussen, the building official for Manhattan and the author of the memo, said the training was not on how the inspectors could become another set of eyes for the police department. Instead, it was related primarily to police officers giving inspectors safety tips on how to deal with a number of unusual circumstances. But the memo does note that inspectors â&#x20AC;&#x153;have referred a few addressesâ&#x20AC;? to the police department where suspected drugs or paraphernalia were present during the inspection. During the two years of the program, Claussen estimated his department gave the police addresses to follow up on about 10 times. Several Lawrence residents have been pointing to the repeal of the Manhattan program as The Manhattan project evidence that Lawrenceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s The city of Manhattan proposed system is un-

workable. But Claussen said the city didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have many problems administering the program, and he said he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think privacy concerns led to its repeal. Instead, he said the philosophy on the Manhattan City Commission simply changed after a local election put new members on the board. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think they just thought it was more regulation than they wanted for a business,â&#x20AC;? Claussen said. After months of debate, Lawrence city commissioners are now reaching the point of deciding what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re comfortable with on the issue. Amyx has expressed consistent concern about the proposed ordinance, but the other four commissioners have given various levels of support to the idea. Dever said the new batch of privacy concerns is causing him to â&#x20AC;&#x153;struggleâ&#x20AC;? with the issue of an inspection program. But he stopped short of saying that he will pull his support of the program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is reason to believe we have the right people to put the right procedures in place,â&#x20AC;? Dever said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just need to make sure we take the time to put the right procedures in place.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362.

KCC duties Remarks by the Kansas Corporation Commission chairman raise some real question about his dedication to the work of the agency and to Kansas consumers.


t seems that Mark Sievers, chairman of the Kansas Corporation Commission, may not understand the core responsibilities of the agency he leads. The KCC’s mission, as outlined on its own website is “to protect the public interest through impartial, efficient and transparent resolution of all jurisdictional issues.” Key among those issues is regulating rates, services and safety of public utilities. With that in mind, it’s hard to understand Sievers’ recent assertion that, rather than try to parse complicated cost allocation and rate design studies, the KCC might consider simply assuming that any utility rate increase of less than 10 percent is reasonable and approve. Perhaps a 9.9 percent increase in electrical, natural gas or other utility rates isn’t significant to Sievers, but many Kansas consumers would disagree. Sievers’ remarks were outlined in a 15-page document he submitted as part of the recent approval of a rate increase for Westar Energy. Interestingly, Sievers submitted his comments in writing because he was unable to attend the Nov. 12 KCC meeting at which the Westar rates were approved. Although the document was presented as his personal opinion on the issue, it is nonetheless troubling. “Cost allocation is an imprecise art and not a science — littered with details, and there are times then it is not fruitful to engage in the work effort to do a full-blown cost allocation or rate design study,” he wrote. His remarks apparently are aimed primarily at the Citizens Utility Ratepayer Board, which is responsible for representing the interests of consumers in rate cases. CURB had argued in the Westar case that additional costs shouldn’t be borne by residential and small commercial customers. Rate studies are used to determine how a utility’s costs should be allocated among residential, commercial and other types of customers. Sievers said he favored bypassing the rate studies and implementing his 10 percent rate threshhold “because it reduces the discretion of advocates and lawyers to engage in unproductive litigation…” Unproductive for whom? The legal costs in the Westar case were estimated at $75,000, but how can Siever say that wasn’t a good investment for Kansas ratepayers — especially if the alternative is for utilities to gain approval for any rate increase under 10 percent without any opportunity for input or a legal challenge from CURB or another consumer group. If Sievers thinks that rate studies are an unreliable basis on which to decide rate cases, it is the responsibility of the KCC to demand different or additional information on which to determine whether rate increases are reasonable and justified. Rubber-stamping any increase under 10 percent would be a simple abdication of the KCC’s primary duties. The idea that the KCC chairman would even suggest such a strategy raises real questions about his leadership of this important agency. LAWRENCE

No excuses; let’s bury the N-word The N-word again. Of course. Six years after the NAACP staged its symbolic burial, that word has proven rumors of its demise greatly exaggerated. In just the last few weeks we’ve had the following: Richie Incognito, a white player for the Miami Dolphins, tags a black teammate, Jonathan Martin, with that epithet and black players defend the white guy because he’s an “honorary” brother; Matt Barnes of the Los Angeles Clippers tweets the word in criticizing his teammates and says people who have a problem with that should “get used to it;” Trent Williams, a black player for Washington’s professional football team (speaking of racial slurs) is accused of using the word against Roy Ellison, a black referee, a charge Williams denies. Then it gets worse. The mushrooming controversies prompt two African-American NBA analysts, Charles Barkley and Michael Wilbon, to defend their usage of the N-word. And it’s not just the jockocracy, either. Last week in The New York Times, celebrated social critic Ta-Nehisi Coates, who is African-American, made the old “context” argument; i.e., it’s OK if we say

Leonard Pitts Jr.

How can we require others to respect us when this word suggests we don’t respect ourselves?” it, but it’s not OK if you say it. In defending the N-word as an “in-word” Coates noted how some women will jokingly call other women by a misogynistic term or some gay people will laughingly use a homophobic slur in talking with or about one another. Some of us would say that’s not such a good look, either. Some of us think there is cause for dismay when women, gay people or any put-upon people adopt the terminology of their oppressors as self-definition. But the larger point is this: So what? Like it or not, the N-word is not like the words

used to denigrate women and gay people or, for that matter, Italian, Irish or Jewish people, simply because the experiences those peoples endured in this country do not compare with those of African-Americans. The N-word is unique. It was present at the act of mass kidnap that created “black America,” it drove the ship to get here, signed the contracts at flesh auctions on Southern ports as mother was torn from child, love from love and self from self. It had a front-row center seat for the acts of blood, rape, castration, exclusion and psychological destruction by which the created people were kept down and in their place. The whole weight of our history dictates that word cannot be used except as an expression of contempt for African-Americans. The only difference when a Matt Barnes or Ta-Nehisi Coates uses it is that the contempt is black on black. “Context?” That argument grows more threadbare every time it’s made. It may also be growing less effective in cowing white people of good will. As reporter Richard Prince recently noted in his online “Journal-isms” column, a number of white journalists

have refused to be silenced on this. That includes Mike Wise of the Washington Post, who wrote a brave piece confronting those who would deny him the right to be concerned because of his race. “That doesn’t work for me,” he said. “I deserve a seat at this table. This is about the world my 3-year-old is going to live in.” Indeed, it is about the world all our children will inherit. African-Americans are not walled off from that world, cannot commit this sin of self-denigration in our little corner of existence and command everyone else to ignore it or pretend it doesn’t matter. Our stubborn insistence otherwise speaks volumes. As does the fact that some so determinedly defend the indefensible. How can we require others to respect us when this word suggests we don’t respect ourselves? So burying the N-word, well-intentioned, as it was, turns out to have been fruitless. Something in some of us seems to need this word. And to agree with it. Let us find a way to bury that instead. — Leonard Pitts Jr., winner of the 2004 Pulitzer Prize for commentary, is a columnist for the Miami Herald.


School questions

N.D. fracking: Boom or bust? For the first time in some 40 years, I didn’t open the pheasant season in Kansas with the same group of friends. Such traditions are painful to break, but the dearth of birds in drought-stricken Kansas and divergent commitments trumped nostalgia. So I struck out for South Dakota, where pheasants are plentiful. Then on to North Dakota, where I met up with a friend who’s moved his contracting business there to take advantage of the fracking oil and gas boom. After driving for hours through a desolate, featureless landscape, I was unprepared for the spectacle that greeted me when I reached the drilling fields. Cresting a hill, I encountered an endless convoy of tanker trucks, derricks nodding like giant birds, bulldozers and backhoes gouging and clawing at the earth, compounds of gleaming oil tanks, trailers and RVs of workers scattered everywhere. The boom has transformed this remote area into a Wild West, gold-rush frenzy. Some hail the boom as a rousing example of America on the move. The discovery of vast reserves of oil and natural gas has given us the prospect of energy independence at a time when the Middle East seems plunging into chaos. Lower energy prices offer some relief for Americans stuck in an economic slough and an opportunity to develop a long-term strategy for the eventual depletion of fossil fuels. But it’s also disfigured the landscape and brought on the ills that come with an invasion of workers with no permanent commitment to the area. At

It’s worth noting that this revolution is taking place on private land and probably never would have happened if it hadn’t escaped the regulatory hand of a government that is hostile to fossil fuels.”

night, the countryside resembles an inferno. Garish flames leap up from gas that must be burned off for lack of storage or transmission lines. According to one report, they’re burning off $100 million in natural gas a month, an extravagant waste. “We’ve had booms and busts before,” said one skeptical native. “And they always end in busts. There’s a lot of people just passing through to make a buck.” Tales abound of con men and carpetbaggers who’ve made promises and then vanished after getting some cash up front. Drug abuse has escalated. On the other hand, farmers whose families have braved the harsh and lonely Dakota winters for generations, have become millionaires overnight. Many have bought second homes in Florida. Fracking is the bete noire of environmentalists, who

see this windfall as a curse, prolonging dependency on fossil fuels, aggravating global warming and slowing the conversion to renewable energy. And fracking may turn out to have forbidding side effects. There’s a downside to every upside, no blessing without some attendant hitch. It’s worth noting that this revolution is taking place on private land and probably never would have happened if it hadn’t escaped the regulatory hand of a government that is hostile to fossil fuels. Among the unforgettable people I met during my brief sojourn was a couple who’d come from Washington State. They’d lost their business in the recent economic downturn and had come to North Dakota to make a fresh start. They were living in a kind of mobile trailer-kitchen, serving sandwiches and pizzas to truckers and field workers from dawn to late at night. Word had gotten around of their outstanding bacon-andcheese burgers and French dip sandwiches and they were doing a brisk business. The boom scenario was appalling and exhilarating at the same time. While our government seems eager to create more incentives not to work, these modern pioneers exemplify the American appetite for opportunity, the knack for self-renewal and self-reliance, the energy and ingenuity that fuels economic progress, the attitude expressed by a sign in a nearby service station: “Life has no remote. Get up and change it yourself.” — George Gurley, a resident of rural Baldwin City, writes a regular column for the Journal-World.

To the editor: Let me see if I get this straight: Cordley Elementary, a school built in 1919, is slated for significant, costly and time-consuming renovations, while the students are shipped off to East Heights, a school built in the late 1940s and subsequently mothballed for being clearly inadequate. Meanwhile, Centennial, a school built in the 1950s along the lines of Hillcrest and Sunset Hills, remains closed, despite being less than four blocks from Cordley! If it is necessary to renovate Cordley, why not use Centennial, which is within walking distance of Cordley? The bigger question — why renovate Cordley at all, for at the end of the day the district will still have a school built in 1919, which will eventually be closed, but only after having had big bucks sunk into it. It is things like this that voters remember when the school board and administration present bond issues for their approval. I for one certainly will. Jeff Southard, Lawrence

Local needs To the editor: The couple who were assigned four columns at the top left of Thanksgiving Day’s Journal-World report that they have helped a couple dozen homeless people around the country get into homes. This is surely admirable. I am sure they are wonderful people, as the article says. Based on this experience, they have decided that the greatest need for Lawrence’s homeless is furniture for when they are ready to transition into a home. Perhaps it is, but I would like to hear from the Lawrence Community Shelter and Family Promise to see what problems they see the local homeless facing. If furniture is a great need, wouldn’t it make sense to work with the Social Service League, Salvation Army and Goodwill to help provide it? Is opening a new agency, arranging for space and staff, really the most efficient way to provide for this most needy group? Anne L. Haehl, Lawrence

WICHITA (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A family-owned Wichita aviation company that specializes in making wire harnesses for aircraft is also growing its business by providing upgrades to replace older, outdated equipment on airplanes. Global Aviation Technologies is an engineering, consulting and manufacturing operation that helps aircraft owners fight obsolescence on out-ofproduction planes, The Wichita Eagle reported. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We resolve obsolescence and out-of-production issues,â&#x20AC;? said Woody Cottner, a Wichita native who founded the company and is its vice president of engineering. He said customers with older airplanes complain about a lack of support

from manufacturers who often would like to keep their clients happy but have limited resources. Global Aviation opened in 2002 and received its first referral from Learjet. Wal-Mart wanted to upgrade the global positioning system on its fleet of Learjet 35s at the time, but it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a core competency for Learjet, which was busy with products still in production. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Learjet didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to do it,â&#x20AC;? Cottner said. Global Aviation employs 15 people, which is up from four in 2006. It is in the process of buying 5 acres of property where it plans to build a 40,000-square-foot building next year that will serve as its fifth headquarters in its 11 years.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll never have to move again,â&#x20AC;? said Candace Cottner, who is married to Woody Cottner and is the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s director of operations. Candace Cottner joined her husband in the company in 2006 after spending 10 years in the banking industry. In addition to its specialty, wire harnesses, Global Aviation also designs integration packages for radars, navigation systems, cabin lighting and flight deck upgrades for out-of production aircraft. Piedmont Airlines, L3 Communications Vertex, Worthington Aviation, Bombardier Learjet, Beechcraft and Northrop Grumman are among its biggest customers.

Little consolation KANSAS 67, UTEP 63

Nick Krug/Journal-World Photos

KANSAS UNIVERSITY GUARD NAADIR THARPE (10) LOOKS TO PUSH THE BALL UP THE COURT as UTEP’s Justin Crosgile (24), Cedrick Lang (31) and McKenzie Moore swarm, intending to foul with less than a minute remaining in regulation. The Jayhawks held on for a 67-63 victory in the third-place game of the Battle 4 Atlantis on Saturday in Paradise Island, Bahamas.

KU narrowly upends UTEP By Gary Bedore

PARADISE ISLAND, BAHAMAS — A narrow victory over UTEP in the thirdplace game of the Battle 4 Atlantis Tournament was no cause for celebration for Kansas University’s basketball players, coaches and fans on Saturday in Imperial Arena in the plush Atlantis resort. The mood, in fact, was downright gloomy after the Jayhawks’ 67-63 victory — a game in which KU (6-1) nearly blew a 14-point lead

Kansas gives away Showdown, 31-10 By Matt Tait

Mike Yoder/Journal-World Photo

KANSAS UNIVERSITY JUNIOR MICHAEL REYNOLDS (55) WALKS OFF THE FIELD with senior James Sims after Sims’ last game as a Jayhawk — KU’s 31-10 loss to Kansas State on Saturday at Memorial Stadium.

For the heavy underdog to have a chance against its instate rival, there’s a laundry list of things that must go right. Included among them are: Win the turnover battle, limit mistakes, control the clock and catch an unusual break of some kind. Saturday, in front of a split crowd of 43,610 fans at Memorial Stadium, Kansas University’s football team ended the 2013 season by misfiring in each area, and the result was a 31-10 loss to Kansas State. By far, turnovers dealt Kansas the biggest blow. The Jayhawks coughed it up six times and took it away just twice. “When you turn it over 100 times, the chance you have to come back in a game like that just goes out the

window,” second-year KU coach Charlie Weis said. “Turnovers are part of MORE the game. It was just INSIDE how they all packaged toO Kansas gether.

Dur-

ing the first 15:10 of game time, the Wildcats racked up 149 yards on just 13 plays while limiting the Jayhawks to 29 yards on nearly twice as many snaps. While KSU’s defense stacked the box to stuff the run, the Wildcats’ offense gave the KU defense fits. “It’s tricky,” KU senior safety Dexter Linton said of the KSU offense. “We were focused, but Kansas State’s offense is so complex that you really have to dig deep, and I guess we didn’t do that in the beginning.” That was particularly true on two long passing touchdowns in which a K-State receiver slipped behind the defense after KSU quarterback Jake Waters sold the fact that he was going to run it and then stepped back and threw a “pop pass” over Please see SHOWDOWN, page 6B

EAST LANSING, MICH. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The season technically ended Saturday, but in fact it was just the beginning for Michigan State. Keeping with the Thanksgiving weekend spirit, the Spartansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; regular-season finale with Minnesota wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exactly turkey and stuffing. It was the pre-meal hors dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;oeuvres. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get too full. Save yourself for the main course. If you can walk to the dinner table, then itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stamped a good day because youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still hungry for something more. An 11-1 regular season validates the Spartans as a program worth taking more seriously. But the combination of the Spartansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; unimpressive 14-3 victory over Minnesota coupled with Ohio Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s laughable 4241 survival against a poor Michigan team in Ann Arbor created a Big Ten championship game next week in Indianapolis that raises more questions than offers answers. Is the Big Ten once again a football conference predicated more on hype than reality? â&#x20AC;&#x153;All we can do is take care of our own business,â&#x20AC;? said defensive back Darqueze Dennard. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We knew that this was going to be a tough team and a tough game. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most important is that we got the win.â&#x20AC;? Yeah, they did. But the Spartans didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exactly win many converts with quarterback Connor Cook having his worst game in the last month, only completing half of his passing attempts. Michigan State looked like a team going through the motions. It needed a definitive statement against a Minnesota team stumbling toward the finish line. Instead, the Spartans did just enough to keep winning and maintain the fantasy that â&#x20AC;&#x201D; if truly pushed by a very good offensive team â&#x20AC;&#x201D; they can measure up to their strong national defensive statistics. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t look past them, thinking ahead to the Big Ten championship game,â&#x20AC;? said safety Isaiah Lewis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our goal coming into this game was finishing the regular season with 11 wins. That was our objective. The game might not have looked pretty to a lot of people, but we won the game and that was what this week was all about â&#x20AC;&#x201D; getting the win.â&#x20AC;? They cleared a hurdle. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got three 11-win seasons in the last four years. They won all eight of their conference games by more than 10 points. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worthy of congratulations. But the Spartans still canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t shake the inevitability that their success is as much the result of a Big Ten thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s woefully underwhelming. Their season is now all about Saturday night in the Big Ten title game against an Ohio State team that looked nothing like the supposedly third-best team in the country . â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care about that game, other than as a fan of course,â&#x20AC;? said Mark Dantonio. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got my own problems.â&#x20AC;? Naturally, the players had no idea of what transpired in Ann Arbor since the two games started at the same time. But it did seem throughout Spartan Stadium, there was as much interest in what happened 60 miles away in what was unfolding right before their eyes. But, for a change, it had nothing to do with Michigan and everything to do he Spartansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; next opponent, the Buckeyes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What was the final score?â&#x20AC;? Tyler Hoover asked. When told, he simply shrugged his shoulders, in some ways an acknowledgment of the entire day. The outcomes meant nothing toward the overriding issue â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the Spartansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; push to make their first BCS bowl game in the 15-year history of the process.

NEBRASKA FOOTBALL COACH BO PELINI, LEFT, protests a pass-interference call to referee Alex Kemp, center, and linesman Steve Matarante during the Cornhuskersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 38-17 loss to Iowa on Friday in Lincoln, Neb.

Nebraskaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pelini receives vote of confidence LINCOLN, NEB. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Nebraska coach Bo Pelini is safe for now. Athletic director Shawn Eichorst issued a statement Saturday expressing support for Pelini and his staff and quashing speculation that the sixth-year coachâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s job was in jeopardy following a disappointing regular season. The Cornhuskers are 8-4, 5-3 in the Big Ten, after their 38-17 loss to Iowa on Friday. Pelini is 57-24 at Nebraska, but the school has not won a conference title since 1999. The Huskers will learn their bowl destination next weekend. Eichorst, who is in his first full year as athletic director, until Saturday had adhered to his policy of not commenting about his coaches until after their seasons. â&#x20AC;&#x153;However,â&#x20AC;? he said in his statement, â&#x20AC;&#x153;given the volume of unfounded speculation and conjecture about our head football coach, I want to reaffirm what I have said many times since I have arrived at the University of Nebraska â&#x20AC;&#x201D; that I positively respect, appreciate and support our football student-athletes, coaches and staff, as we do everyone in the Husker family. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We very much look forward to our upcoming bowl game and coach Pelini continuing to lead our program in the future.â&#x20AC;? Pelini is under contract through the 2017 season and is paid almost $3 million a year. Peliniâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contract is extended one year after each season he receives a positive job review from the athletic director. Former athletic director Tom Osborne extended Peliniâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contract last year just a few days after the 70-31 loss to Wisconsin in the Big Ten championship game. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t known when Peliniâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next job evaluation would be done. Eichorst was not available for comment beyond his statement. Had Eichorst decided to fire Pelini now, the university would have owed Pelini more than $7.6 million, according to his contract. Pelini on Friday did nothing to quiet speculation that his job was on the line. He was penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct after nearly making contact with the head linesman with his cap while protesting a passinterference penalty. He was terse at halftime with the ABC sideline reporter who asked him a question he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like. After the game, Pelini used an expletive to describe the pass-interference call and, while defending his record, said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;If they want to fire me, go ahead.â&#x20AC;? The 45-year-old Pelini first appeared at Nebraska in 2003 as defensive coordinator for Frank Solich. He oversaw remarkable defensive improvement that season, and after Solich was fired, he was interim head coach for the Huskersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; bowl win. Pelini and the rest of the staff were let go after the game, and Pelini went on to be a coordinator at Oklahoma and LSU. Pelini, coming off a national championship at LSU, was a popular choice when then-athletic director Osborne hired him to replace Bill Callahan after the 2007 season. Nebraska hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t finished higher than No. 20 in the final Associated Press poll since 2009, and 10 of the Huskersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; last 12 losses have been by double digits. Turnovers and poor special-teams play have hampered them.


Broncosâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Wolfe ruled out ENGLEWOOD, COLO. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Broncos defensive end Derek Wolfe was alert and recovering at a Denver hospital Saturday after suffering seizure-like symptoms when the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bus pulled into the airport Friday afternoon for the flight to Kansas City. Wolfe wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t play in todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s showdown against the Chiefs. Team doctors began treating Wolfe on the bus, then summoned an ambulance to take him to a hospital, where the second-year pro from the University of Cincinnati underwent a battery of tests Friday night and Saturday. It was determined that Wolfe didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t suffer a stroke or a full-blown seizure, but the Broncos didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t specify the exact cause of his symptoms, saying only that he was doing better Saturday evening and that he was alert and communicating with others

MALELANE, SOUTH AFRICA â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Charl Schwartzel opened a two-shot lead after three rounds at the Alfred Dunhill Championship. The defending champion, Schwartzel shot a 5-under 67 on Saturday to move to 13 under and pull away from Englandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Richard Finch at Leopard Creek. Victor Riu of France was another shot back at 10 under. Schwartzel, the 2011 Masters champion, led after three rounds at the South African Open last weekend before struggling in the final round. Schwartzel had five birdies and no bogeys to take the lead at the Alfred Dunhill, which he won by 12 shots a year ago for his last European Tour win. Schwartzelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s co-overnight leader, Morten Orum Madsen, shot a 7-over 79.

Scott leads in Australia SYDNEY â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Adam Scott shot a 4-under 68 Saturday to take a four-shot lead over Rory McIlroy heading into the final round of the Australian Open and move closer to a Australian triple crown. Scott is trying to match Robert Allenbyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2005 accomplishment of winning the Open, Australian Masters and Australian PGA in succession. Scott also won the Masters at Augusta in April.

No. 2 Duke routs KU women, 73-40 J-W Staff Reports


ST. THOMAS, VIRGIN ISLANDS â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The No. 2-ranked Duke womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball team doubled up Kansas University in the second half and routed the Jayhawks, 73-40, Saturday in the final game of the U.S. Virgin Islands Paradise Jam tournament. Duke outscored Kansas, 44-20, in the second half after shaky shooting performances by both teams gave the Blue Devils (8-0) a 29-20 halftime lead. The Jayhawks (4-3) were led by 11 points from freshman guard Keyla Morgan. No other KU player scored more than five points as Kansas shot just 20 percent from the field. Tricia Liston led the Blue Devils with 19 points and eight rebounds. Duke held a steep 54-28 rebound advantage over Kansas. KU senior CeCe Harper (five points, three rebounds) was named to the Island Division AllTournament team. Duke was named the champion of the division. The Jayhawks will host Arkansas at 7 p.m. Wednesday at Allen Fieldhouse.

KU volleyball falls, finishes runner-up J-W Staff Reports

NORMAN, OKLA. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Kansas Universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s volleyball team earned the programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first second-place finish in the Big 12 Conference on Saturday despite a 3-1 loss in its season finale at Oklahoma. The Jayhawks fell, 2516, 17-25, 25-19, 25-16, to the Sooners, but a loss by Iowa State at Kansas State gave KU sole possession of second place. Kansas was led by

Catherine Carmichaelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 14 kills, but hit .170 to Oklahomaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s .341. Erin McNorton had a match-high 49 assists with 10 digs, and Brianne Riley made KU history with 21 digs. Riley became the first KU player and sixth in Big 12 history to tally 2,000 career digs. The Jayhawks (23-7, 12-4 Big 12) will find out their postseason fate during the NCAA Selection Show, which airs at 8:30 tonight on ESPNU.

Derby tops SM East for 6A title The Associated Press

Class 6A: Derby 28, Shawnee Mission East 21 TOPEKA â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Quarterback Jeremy Dunham threw two touchdown passes and ran in another as Derby beat Shawnee Mission East in Kansasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Class 6A Championship on Saturday. Dunham finished 9-of13 passing for 123 yards and rushed for 21 yards for Derby (12-1). Quarterback Gunnar England passed for 127 yards but had a net loss of 43 yards rushing for Shawnee Mission East (11-2). Dunham recorded his first touchdown with a 5-yard run in the second quarter, and Tyler West scored with a 9-yard run later in the quarter to give Derby a 14-7 halftime lead.

5A: Blue Valley 27, Salina South 26 EMPORIA â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Quarterback Logan Brettell had two touchdown runs, a touchdown pass and two field goals as Blue Valley held on to beat Salina South in the Class 5A championship game. Blue Valley led 27-6 in the third quarter before Salina South mounted a three-touchdown comeback. However, a two-point conversion attempt failed at the end of the fourth. 4A: Buhler 31, Coffeyville 14 SALINA â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Senior running back Riley Allen ran for 173 yards and three touchdowns to lead Buhler to a victory over Coffeyville in the Class 4A championship.

3A: Silver Lake 82, Beloit 38 HUTCHINSON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Quarterback Dailin Kruger threw five touchdown passes and ran in three others as Silver Lake beat Beloit in the 3A title game. Kruger finished 21-of-32 passing for 317 yards and rushed for 92 yards for Silver Lake (13-1). 2-1A: Centralia 61, LaCrosse 0 HAYS â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Senior Sam Steinlage ran in four touchdowns as Centralia trounced LaCrosse in the Class 2-1A state championship. Centralia (13-0) led 29-0 at the half after Steinlage scored three times in the second quarter. He finished with 14 carries for 254 yards and four scores.

BALDWIN CITY â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Baker University footballâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best season in 20 years came to an end Saturday when the No. 4 Wildcats fell to No. 5 Morningside College, 3628, at Liston Stadium. After holding Sterling to three points in the first round of the NAIA playoffs, Baker (11-2) had the tall task of stopping the NAIAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top-ranked offense in the quarterfinals. Morningside was led by quarterback Ryan Kasdorf, who threw five touchdown passes and had 321 yards of total offense. Baker quarterback Jake Morse was not to be outdone, though, as he went 34-for-44 for 417 yards and three touchdowns. The senior quarterback gave BU an early 7-0 lead when he hit Dillon Baxter for a 25-yard touchdown reception. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(Morse) played lightsout,â&#x20AC;? wide receiver Tyler Hatcher said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He led us all day and put the ball where he needed to.â&#x20AC;? The Baker defense also came out firing by forcing a three-and-out, but a mishandled punt by Lawrence Free State product Camren Torneden gave the ball right back to Morningside. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The punt-return muff, that was just huge momentum,â&#x20AC;? Baker coach Mike Grossner said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had the 7-0 lead and then, whammo.â&#x20AC;? That â&#x20AC;&#x153;whammoâ&#x20AC;? Grossner referred to was the first of three first-half touchdown passes from Kasdorf to Joel McCabe. While McCabe, Kyle Schuck and Devin Thomas made life difficult on the Baker secondary, BU wide receiver Clarence Clark had a big game of his own.

MORNINGSIDE LINEBACKER AARON ROBERG, LEFT, DELIVERS A BLOW to Baker receiver Aundre Allen after Allen pulled down the ball during an NAIA quarterfinal Saturday afternoon at Liston Stadium in Baldwin City. Baker lost, 36-28. For more photos from the game, go to Clark pulled BU even at 14 with a 42-yard touchdown catch from Morse â&#x20AC;&#x201D; one of his nine receptions for 147 yards. McCabe was not fazed, though, as he caught his second and third touchdowns of the day to give Morningside a 28-21 halftime advantage. The third quarter looked like a completely different game, with each defense making one impact play after another. Mike Stevenson and Tucker Pauley picked off Kasdorf, and the Baker defense looked like the one that had only allowed 17.8 points per game all season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The problem with the first half is that we gave up a lot of big plays,â&#x20AC;? Pauley said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just wanted to come out (in the second half) and eliminate the big plays.â&#x20AC;? Perhaps the biggest play of the game came from the Mustangs defense. Clark caught a deep ball from Morse, but was tackled from behind and fumbled just short of the goal line. Morningsideâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

Darius Hicks recovered the ball in the end zone for a touchback. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(The official) said he pulled (Clarkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s) neck. (The defender) pulled the back of (Clarkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s) shoulder pads, but (the ref) said he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t impede his progress,â&#x20AC;? Grossner said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;You have got to be kidding me.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; The kid fumbled because of it.â&#x20AC;? Morningside capitalized when Kasdorf threw his fifth touchdown pass to Austin Klett to put the Mustangs up 34-21. The Wildcatsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; comeback attempt was too little, too late. Hatcher hauled in a 12-yard touchdown pass with 2:10 left to pull BU within six. Morse and the Wildcats then got a final chance after the BU defense made a stop. Morningside punter Jordan Sitzmann made it difficult, though, by pinning Baker on its own two-yard line. Morse was sacked for safety a play later to seal the Morningside victory. Baker finished the season with a record of 11-2.

We were exposed pretty good over here.” He let loose with a stream of negatives after the Jayhawks appeared to suffer a hangover following Friday’s semifinal loss to Villanova. “I think we are taking away we have a long way to go to becoming a good basketball team. That’s not bad, either. We rarely have great teams in November,” Self said. “We are not as good as we were 17, 18 days ago. That’s a little frustrating we’ve gone backwards. We didn’t play well at all over here. We played one decent half and five crappy ones, in large part because of opponents and how they played. “We made some plays, especially in late-game situations against Wake Forest (in first-round win). Against Wake, we had the game put away and let them back in. Today, we had the game put away and let them back in. Villanova ... we had a onepoint lead with 12 seconds left and didn’t do what we should have done. There are great teaching moments that should help us moving forward.” There were some highlights Saturday. Joel Embiid totaled a freshman-record seven blocks, passing Nick Collison’s six versus Nebraska in 2000. And Wayne Selden had 12 points the first half and finished with 14 off 6-of-9 shooting. Also, Perry Ellis, who hit some clutch free throws late, netted 19 points with seven boards. But the lowlights were plentiful as well. “I think our energy level sucks,” Self said. The Jayhawks, who were patient in attacking UTEP’s gimmick defenses and four-corner offense, held a 15-2 lead nine minutes into the game. However, the lead dipped to 26-20 at 2:51 before being

increased to 34-25 by intermission. “It’s hard to play the game if you don’t have great energy,” Self noted. “It’s hard to play the third game

of a three-game tournament with unbelievable energy, (but) there has to be more a sense of urgency. We play way, way, way too casual. That goes into how you screen, block out, go after loose balls, a lot of things we are not doing well now.” Self said he’s not doing a good job of coaching the Jayhawks. “I thought we’d have errors of trying too hard instead of casualness,” he said. “That’s what’s really frustrating to me. To me, a coach should be judged on three things: Do they play together? Are they unselfish? Do they play extremely hard, and are they tough? I’d say we went 0-for-3. That’s frustrating to me when you go 0-for-3.” Freshman guard Selden, who was one point off a career high, missed a shot and had three turnovers before the first TV timeout. But he also scored KU’s first five points and dove into the stands for a loose ball during the contest. “I would say Wayne played with as good as energy as anybody,” Self said, also citing Embiid and Tarik Black. “It’s good to see Wayne make a couple shots. That was good. He got off to a rough start. I’m glad I didn’t sub him. He had three turnovers in three minutes, got a couple shots down and actually played well the first half.”

Embiid had six points, six rebounds and seven blocks the second half while playing 16 minutes after intermission. “I thought he was good. I’m speaking honestly. That’s one guy on a big uptick,” Self said. “He has to play more minutes without fouling.” As far as re-living the near-disastrous end- KANSAS GUARD NAADIR THARPE (10) TRIES TO ing, KU led, 59-45, at 2:15.

KU held on for a 67-63 victory in the third-place game of the Battle 4 Atlantis on Saturday in Paradise Island, Bahamas.


Wiggins sluggish; Embiid blocks 7 By Gary Bedore

PARADISE ISLAND, BAHA— Kansas University freshman Andrew Wiggins, who has been slowed by a bout of the flu, scored six points off 2-of-9 shooting with seven rebounds while playing 34 minutes in Saturday’s 67-63 Battle 4 Atlantis victory over UTEP. He missed four shots and did not score while playing 18 minutes the final half. Wiggins had 10 points off 3-of-8 shooting in Friday’s 63-59 semifinal loss to Villanova. “I didn’t even ask him,” Self said, asked if Wiggins still was slowed by the bug. “He was dragging. I don’t know if it was fatigue from flu or whatevMAS

er. I don’t think he played with unbelievable energy. He did get his hands on a lot of balls the second half in going to the offensive glass.” Wiggins had six rebounds the second half — three offensive. “I would say they are all trying to do that,” Self said, asked if Wiggins was trying to find a comfort zone in the offense. “I would say they are all trying to do that. I would say that is a fair assessment.” Wiggins wasn’t made available for comment at all during the tourney.

“I always know to go straight up and try to block it and contest it,” 7-foot Cameroon native Embiid said. He passed Nick Collison, who had six blocks versus Nebraska in February of 2000. “Kansas’ length got us,” UTEP coach Tim Floyd said. “The big freshman had an impact on the game.” O

Black’s OK: KU senior center Tarik Black banged his right knee and played just two minutes the second half. Self said Black O was OK and didn’t suffer Embiid rejects seven: any structural damage.

No cheering in the sportsbook: About 20 KU fans watched the KU-Kansas State football game in the sportsbook of the Atlantis casino. The game was available for betting, with KSU an 18-point favorite. It was a pretty silent group that watched the Wildcats prevail, 31-10. Fans, by the way, were unable to bet the basketball games contested at the Battle 4 Atlantis.

The sportsbook did not take action on the games with gambling always a concern of the NCAA and its member institutions. O

made bad decisions and I will improve from them.” When asked who was complaining, he wrote, “Some of KU fans; they love us when we win though.” He also added, “Moving on to the next game tomorrow .. that game tonight will definitely be a good teaching tape for the team.” And ... “I never lose faith.” Mason had the spinning layup and foul shot that gave KU a late one-point lead over Villanova. He also missed a three with five seconds left with KU down two.

Mason tweets: Freshman guard Frank Mason, who was not one of the two players available to the media for comment after Friday’s loss to Villanova, did communicate via Twitter late Friday night/early Saturday. “Couple bad decisions by me tonight, Feel like I let my team down, but those mistakes I made I definitely could learn O from them.” Ellis honored: Ellis was He added ... “Everybody who got some to say about named to the all-tourname and my decisions it’s ment team, the only Jayjust motivation I know I hawk so honored.


shrink to three in the final 10 seconds. By the time their coach cooled down and made it to the postgame news conference, he still groaned about the way KU played in a 67-63 victory over a four-loss team. The way his players screened, blocked out and went after loose balls (or, more accurately, how they didn’t do those things) led him to describe their style as “way, way, way too casual.” UTEP (4-4), which was drubbed by Iowa a night earlier, nearly forced its way into an even bigger upset than Kansas suffered to Villanova on Friday. The Jayhawks (6-1) drove Self loco, because they nearly helped Tim Floyd’s Miners do it. Long before KU struggled to solve UTEP’s full-court press in the final minutes, or sophomore point guard Frank Mason fouled Justin Crosgile with the Jayhawks up 63-57 with 23.8 seconds left on the clock, Self felt as if his team were going backward and regressing from the level it reached less than three weeks ago, in beating Duke. Even freshman guard Wayne Selden (14 points) — who showed flashes of why NBA scouts would

If Self felt good about anything after his team finished 2-1 at the tournament and took third place, it was that he didn’t go Bobby Knight on someone. “Compared to how I can usually be, I thought I was very mild-mannered tonight,” Self joked. When Self let his players have it during timeouts, it was because he looked back toward the floor, and away from the ceiling, and saw a team not living up to its potential. Self almost conceded that playing so many freshmen — Andrew Wiggins, Selden, Frank Mason, Joel Embiid, Conner Frankamp and Landen

Lucas — lends itself to frustrating nights as a coach. But then he cut off that thought before it reached his lips. “Even our veterans are young players as far as experience,” Self said. “I do think that causes a lot of it, and it’s contagious. Just like enthusiasm and energy is contagious, taking the air out of a room is also contagious, too. We’ve gotta improve on that.” Coaches can’t even start to feel good about their execution when they’re worried about energy and effort, and Self doesn’t see his team playing a style that would put him at ease. In fact, Wiggins, who shot 2-for-9 from the field, did the opposite less than two minutes into the second half, and Self immediately yanked him from the game.

Maybe Wiggins isn’t feeling well, as Self noted after Kansas squeaked past Wake Forest on Thursday, or maybe he’s still finding a way to get comfortable. But Self has no issue with punishing the potential top-three NBA Draft pick for his on-court mishaps. The super-forward from Ontario had a chance to score in transition, but Julian Washburn swiped the ball clean, ending the fast break. Self turned to the bench and told Mason to go sub for Wiggins. “It was a pitch-ahead, and he tried to catch it with one hand and bounce it instead of just being solid,” Self said. It was just one in a long line of examples that Self hopes he can turn into teaching moments. Said Self: “The tape don’t lie.”

AD Zenger to ‘stay the course’ By Matt Tait

With offensive-line coach Tim Grunhard stepping down starting today, Weis indicated that one of his top priorities on the recruiting trail would be to visit with the already-committed players with whom Grunhard created bonds. “I’ll be in all their homes this week,” said Weis, speaking mostly of offensive linemen. As for the rest of the whirlwind two weeks, Weis and his coaching staff will hit it hard until Dec. 13, when they’ll come back to Lawrence for the team banquet and then head into their offseason conditioning program starting Dec. 15, when the NCAA puts a temporary stop to all recruiting activity. Asked about his confidence level as he went out in search of reinforcements, Weis seemed ready. “Pretty good,” he said. “I usually feel pretty good about our plan in recruiting.”

With his head coach scheduled to hit the road for recruiting today and his football team having just wrapped up another disappointing season, Kansas University athletic director Sheahon Zenger offered a vote of confidence for the current coaching staff and the direction it’s taking Kansas football. “I’ve been through many rebuilding projects,” Zenger said following KU’s 31-10 loss to rival Kansas State on Saturday at Memorial Stadium. “And this is when you stay the course. Whether it be today or the rest of the season, wins and losses aren’t always indicative of the effort that is put in by this coaching staff and these players. I’m proud of their work ethic, and we’ll continue to chop away at this.” Weis, 4-20 during his first two seasons at Kansas, seemed eager to hit the road changes coming? Asked if he had plans to to recruit help for the future.

shake up his coaching staff any more than by replacing Grunhard, Weis turned the focus back to recruiting. “Right now, I’m not worrying about doing anything with our staff,” he said. “I want to get through recruiting. If you’re gonna do anything, that’s the time when you do that. Right now, it’s full-speed-ahead in recruiting.” KU has nine players committed in the current recruiting class and is expected to add more than a dozen more, mixing in high school and junior college players at the team’s weakest positions.

so long, seniors Saturday’s loss marked the final game in the careers of 23 players who either exhausted their eligibility or will be graduating and will not return to the program next season. That made the postgame scene in the locker room emotional for everyone, and Weis briefly shared what he

said to the outgoing players following their final game. “I had a long conversation with ’em in the locker room, and I’d prefer to leave that private,” he began. “I always talk about life. I’m a lot bigger than football. There’s a lot of things you learn by being a part of a football team, and football happens to be just one of ’em.” Asked how it felt to be finished, senior safety Dexter Linton said: “Sad day in Lawrence, Kansas. We’ve been here for so long, me for five years, three coaches … I’m gonna miss it. We gave it our all, we worked hard, and we gave everything we could to the program throughout all the losses. We never gave up.” Added senior center Gavin Howard of the scene in a quiet locker room following the loss: “It was real emotional, with all the underclassmen telling the seniors they’re gonna miss ’em and talking to all of the coaches you’ve been with for so long.”

I would’ve never guessed that we would turn it over six times. ... Those are killers.” The Jayhawks surrendered one-third as many turnovers Saturday as they had all season. That included three interceptions thrown by Heaps and two fumbles by senior running back James Sims. One of pickoffs, a Dante Barnett interception off the hands of Mundine, was bigger than the rest, as it came with the Jayhawks trailing just 21-10 and marching to cut the KSU lead to one score. “It goes down as an interception,” said Weis of the ball Mundine bobbled twice before losing. “You want to talk about the cheapest interception of all time. I told

Jimmay they should count that as a fumble.” The loss dropped the Jayhawks to 3-8 overall and 1-8 in Big 12 play. Both numbers represent progress in the win column, but Weis and the two seniors who spoke with the media following Saturday’s loss to the Wildcats (7-5, 5-4) weren’t feeling too good about improving on last year’s 1-11 record as they left Memorial Stadium for the final time this season. “Right now, we just lost to K-State, so I’m not looking at it very favorably,” Weis said of the season. “We lost to our state rival, and right now that Governor’s Cup is sitting in their locker room, and they’re partying in their locker room, and my guys are sulking.”

First Quarter 7:50 — Zach Trujillo 35 pass from Jake Waters. Ian Patterson kick. A Montell Cozart-thrown interception on KU’s second drive of the day set the Wildcats up with great field position for the second time, and this time they capitalized with a 54-yard, three-play scoring drive that took 1:19. On the touchdown, Waters faked a run through a huge hole in the middle, and flipped it over the top. (KSU 7, KU 0). 0:42 — John Hubert 21 run. Patterson kick. After a rough first possession, the K-State offense started executing and seemingly never stopped. This drive, which spanned 67 yards in four plays and 1:36, featured three runs from Hubert. (KSU 14, KU 0). Second Quarter 14:50 — Glenn Gronkowski 28 pass from Waters. Patterson kick. After forcing KU to punt from deep in its own end yet again, the Wildcats took over at the KU 34 and then scored three plays and 14 seconds later on the same play that netted the Wildcats their first touchdown, albeit with a different receiver. (KSU 21, KU 0). 3:53 — Jimmay Mundine 11 pass from Jake Heaps. Ron Doherty kick. After getting another stand from its defense, KU finally got going on offense, when Jake Heaps hit four of five passes during the seven-play, 51-yard scoring drive that took 2:06 and featured a nice play-action pass on fourthand-two from the 11. (KSU 21, KU 7). 1:06 — Ron Doherty 31 field goal. A big-time special-teams play by Victor Simmons, who stripped KSU’s Zach Nemechek on a short kickoff and Josh Ford recovered, gave KU hope and possession in KSU territory. Nine plays and 28 yards later, Doherty doinked a field goal off the right upright and through to pull the Jayhawks within 10. (KSU 21, KU 10). Third Quarter 3:10 — Jake Waters 15 run. Patterson kick. With Kansas driving and looking to cut K-State’s lead to a one-score margin, KSU’s Dante Barnett intercepted a bobbled ball by Jimmay Mundine and set up the score that proved to be the knockout blow. Instead of driving to cut the KSU lead to 21-13 or 21-17, KU watched Waters sprint in from 15 yards out to push the lead to 18 with just over a quarter to play. Waters’ dive at the pylon to get the touchdown initially was called out at the one but was overturned by replay. (KSU 28, KU 10). Fourth Quarter 7:21 — Ian Patterson 31 field goal. After Heaps’ third thrown interception of the day, K-State tacked on three more points and pushed its lead back to the threetouchdown margin it established in the first quarter on the chip-shot kick from Patterson. The drive covered eight yards in six plays and took 2:01. (KSU 31, KU 10).

Sims won’t soon be forgotten The worst four-year stretch in the history of Kansas University football, based on losses, came to an end Saturday in Memorial Stadium, which by the end of another long day had a distinctly purple hue to it. It ended with Kansas State scoring its fifth consecutive victory in the in-state rivalry, 31-10. The latest loss, yet again marred by an abundance of dropped passes, put the four-year record at 9-39 and also ended the careers of a senior class that but for one man couldn’t be much more anonymous than if all the players enrolled in the federal witness-protection program. Just one player will be remembered for a long time by the average football fan, although he did nothing memorable in his career finale. James Sims carried the ball 22 times for 82 yards and lost two fumbles Saturday, two weeks after he rushed for 211 yards against West Virginia in KU’s first and only Big 12 victory since his freshman season.

Auburn stuns ‘Bama on final play The Associated Press

No. 4 Auburn 34, No. 1 Alabama 28 AUBURN, ALA. — Chris Davis returned a missed field-goal attempt more than 100 yards for a touchdown on the final play to lift Auburn over Alabama on Saturday, upending the two-time defending national champions’ BCS hopes and preserving the Tigers’ own. Davis caught the ball about nine yards deep in the end zone after freshman Adam Griffith’s 57yard attempt fell short. He then sprinted down the left sideline and cut back with nothing but teammates around him in a second straight hard-tofathom finish for the Tigers (11-1, 7-1 Southeastern Conference).

No. 9 Baylor survives TCU upset bid, 41-38 The Associated Press

No. 9 Baylor 41, TCU 38 FORT WORTH, TEXAS — Bryce Petty and Baylor’s vaunted offense needed some help from the defense to build a lead against TCU. When that cushion was in jeopardy in the final seconds, the secondary came through one more time for the Bears. Petty threw two touchdown passes and ran for a score, Baylor returned two interceptions for touchdowns and turned away an upset bid with a late pick in the end zone for a victory against TCU on Saturday. “For the defense to have played like they did, I mean, I can’t say enough about the defense,” Petty said. “The defense is the MVP of this team, the way they turned it around, the way they kept us in games.” The Bears (10-1, 7-1 Big

12) scored 21 consecutive points on either side of halftime with just one yard from their high-powered offense and bounced back from a blowout loss at Oklahoma State to maintain their hopes for a share of the conference title. Baylor could win the league outright and qualify for a BCS bid, likely the Fiesta Bowl, if it beats Texas, and the Cowboys lose to Oklahoma next Saturday. The Horned Frogs (48, 2-7) were in position to tie at the Baylor 23 in the final seconds when Casey Pachall decided to go to the end zone and threw his third interception. Sam Holl dove in front of Brandon Carter just as the ball reached the TCU receiver inside the five, causing it to pop into the air off Carter’s hands and into the arms of Terrell Burt as he crossed the goal line. Baylor’s Orion Stewart and Eddie Lackey had

interception returns for scores off Pachall on either side of halftime. “It came down to my three interceptions that cost us the game,” said Pachall, a senior playing his final game after missing most of last season to enter a substance abuse program following a DWI arrest and getting knocked out of five games this year with a broken arm. TCU’s second season in the Big 12 ended with the school’s fewest wins since going 1-10 in 1997. Baylor 10 17 14 0—41 TCU 3 14 14 7—38 First Quarter Bay-FG A.Jones 30, 10:27. TCU-FG Oberkrom 26, 7:26.

Iowa State 52, West Virginia 44, 3OT MORGANTOWN, W.VA. — Iowa State kept plugging along after the Cyclones found themselves down 24 points early to West Virginia.

Red-shirt freshman Grant Rohach forced overtime with 19-yard pass to Justin Coleman in the final minute of regulation. The pair then combined on a 25yard scoring toss in the third overtime, and the Cyclones beat West Virginia. Rohach finished with four TD passes and ran for a fifth score as the Cyclones (3-9, 2-7 Big 12) finished a disappointing season with two straight wins. Rohach completed 25 of 39 passes for a seasonhigh 331 yards. ISU 7 7 0 24 3 3 8 —52 WVU 17 14 0 7 3 3 0 —44 First Quarter WVU-FG Lambert 49, 11:36. WVU-Sims 7 run (Lambert kick), 4:16.

Chiefs, Broncos ready for Round Two KANSAS CITY, MO. (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs are stumbling home to Arrowhead Stadium off two straight losses. The Denver Broncos are hobbling in off a disheartening letdown in New England. Much has changed in the two weeks since they played at Mile High Stadium. Much has stayed the same, too. The Broncos and Chiefs are both 9-2 and tied atop the AFC West, so it’s still a two-team race to the finish. But the Chiefs are no longer the NFL’s lone undefeated team — in fact, they’re the first to start with nine straight wins and then lose two in a row — while the Broncos squandered a chance to create some separation with their overtime loss to the Patriots last weekend. “I think just playing is the best medicine,” Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith said, “but no question, when you’re playing for your division, it raises the focus for sure.” The Broncos would have the tiebreaker over Kansas City and a twogame lead with four games to go with a win. The Chiefs would put themselves in position to win the division for just the second time in a decade, not to mention take a step toward home-field advantage in the playoffs. So it’s an easy argument that there’s even more on the line than the first time they met. “I don’t think you can just say, ‘Well, it was just a couple weeks ago that we played them,’” Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning said. “You have to study them just as hard as you did the first time around.

standpoint, it doesn’t get any easier to prepare because they are such a diverse team scheme-wise and they have such good players.” The Chiefs will be without one of their best players, though. Leading pass rusher Justin Houston, who dislocated his elbow in a gruesome fall during the Chiefs’ 41-38 loss to the Chargers last week, will watch from the sideline. His running mate, Tamba Hali, is expected to play despite spraining

his right ankle against San Diego. It doesn’t bode well against the Broncos’ highscoring offense. “I feel real optimistic about being out there,” said Hali, who’s missed just two games in his eight-year career. “I want to be out there with our guys. I can definitely be a force.” Even with their top two pass rushers, the Chiefs failed to get pressure on Manning in their first goaround. Manning threw for 323 yards and a touch-

Smith and the Chiefs will meet Denver today at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Mo. down without an interception or taking a sack, and the result was a reasonably comfortable 27-17 victory. “We don’t take anything for granted,” Broncos interim coach Jack Del Rio said. “We go in, we prepare hard, we make sure we understand the things they want to get done and how can we keep that from happening, and make sure that we’re attacking them with the things that we want to be good at. “Again, it’s basically approaching it very similar-

ly,” Del Rio added. “The difference is that we just did this a couple weeks ago.” Here are five things to keep in mind as they play Round 2: Moreno’s flat tire: Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno, who had career high 224 yards rushing against the Patriots, missed practice time this week with an ankle injury. Moreno hopes to play against Kansas City, but it’s uncertain how effective he’ll be. Battered DBs: The

Chiefs’ defensive backs were humbled last week by Philip Rivers, who threw for nearly 400 yards against them. Now, they face the prospect of Manning and his plethora of wide receivers. “You have to be willing to get down there, to challenge, compete,” Chiefs defensive coordinator Bob Sutton said. “Sometimes they might hit a big play on us, but we’re trying to win the game. That’s the No. 1 thing we’re trying to do.” Vickerson’s value: Broncos defensive tackle Kevin Vickerson landed on injured reserve with a hip injury, so it will be up to Sylvester Williams to step in and help slow down Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles. “I told him, ‘Where this team wants to go, you’re going to have to grow quick,’” fellow defensive tackle Terrance Knighton said. “There are certain expectations.” Beware the picks: Denver excels at running crossing routes that inadvertently (wink, wink) cause picks in the secondary. Demaryius Thomas may catch the ball five yards downfield, but he ends up gaining 20. “That’s something you have to stop,” Chiefs linebacker Derrick Johnson said. “You have to disrupt their routes, hit them as they’re crossing the field.” Chiefs learning: Chiefs coach Andy Reid wouldn’t reveal particulars, but he said there were things he learned from the way New England dominated Denver in the second half last Sunday. “You can learn from every game and every snap,” he said. “We’ll see how that works out.”

the Broncos to draft them. If they don’t perform up to their lofty draft positions, it’s on the Broncos. So far, they haven’t. Ball has fumbling issues, and they’ve become mental. Right now I see a 22-yearold whose confidence is shaken like a James Bond martini. Ball is impressive as a young man. But at the moment he looks as sure of himself as a golfer with the yips. If I’m the Chiefs, I’m swatting and swiping at the football every time Peyton Manning dares to risk a handoff to No. 28. Watch the end of Ball’s runs. The second-round pick is so worried about securing the ball with both arms, it nullifies any chance of a move that could lead to a big gain. Only one team has stopped the Broncos offense: the Broncos themselves.

“Unacceptable,” offensive coordinator Adam Gase said of the fumbling problem. Williams was the firstround pick. To be fair, it’s not right to compare the stats of a rookie linebacker (like Collins) to a rookie defensive tackle (like Williams). But it should be OK to compare the Broncos’ first-round pick to the other first-rounders at the same position, right? The Jets’ Sheldon Richardson could be on the short list for Defensive Rookie of the Year; Carolina’s Star Lotulelei has drawn strong reviews; Minnesota’s Sharrif Floyd could be a star in the making. Williams has taken the fewest snaps of any defensive tackle in Denver’s rotation. Interim coach Jack Del Rio was asked point blank

if there is a steeper learning curve for a defensive tackle than other positions. “No. I don’t think so,” Del Rio said. The coach explained Williams’ lack of production was due more to the heavyweights in front of him than anything Williams has done, or not done. “It’s really the numbers that we have,” Del Rio said two weeks ago. “Fortunately for us, the guys that are in front of him are healthy and playing well.” With the loss of Vickerson, there’s one fewer guy in front of him. If stopping the run truly is critical to winning in the playoffs, the loss of Vickerson will be as damaging to the defense as the loss of left tackle Ryan Clady was to the offense.

No. 14 Oregon 91, North Dakota 76 EUGENE, ORE. — Oregon’s Mike Moser decided it was time to get his rebounding game going. The transfer from UNLV succeeded with 15 rebounds, along with 13 points, in the Ducks’ victory over North Dakota on Saturday. “I was trying to force it a little more today, make it a real going to go get at least 10 rebounds,” he said. It was Moser’s 19th career double-double but his first at Oregon. It was the first time the Ducks had a player in double figures for rebounds this season. Joseph Young added 23 points, and the Ducks improved to 6-0, extending their best start since opening the 2006-07 season with 13 straight wins. Young, a junior transfer who was the leading scorer for Houston last season, has scored in double figures in all of Oregon’s games this season. Both Young and Moser said they’re jelling nicely with the Ducks. Troy Huff had 25 points and nine rebounds for North Dakota, which pulled to within 81-70 on Jamal Webb’s layup with 2:03 left. After Johnathan Loyd hit a pair of free throws for the Ducks, Aaron Anderson’s jumper for North Dakota make it 8372. Lloyd made two more free throws and Anderson countered again with a layup, but that was as close as UND (2-3) would come. Anderson finished with 22 points.

POLICE AND SCOTTISH FIRE AND RESCUE SERVICES gather at the scene Saturday following a helicopter crash at the Clutha Bar in Glasgow, Scotland. Scottish emergency workers were sifting through wreckage Saturday for survivors of a police helicopter crash onto a crowded Glasgow pub that has killed at least eight people and injured more than two dozen.

Crash casts pall on Scottish holiday By Ben Mcconville and Cassandra Vinograd Associated Press

GLASGOW, SCOTLAND — Scotland’s official holiday was transformed into a grim day of mourning Saturday as emergency crews searched the wreckage of a riverside pub smashed by a falling police helicopter. At least eight people died and more than a dozen remained hospitalized with serious injuries. The Clutha, a popular Glasgow pub, was filled with revelers enjoying a local ska band on Friday night, the eve of St. Andrew’s Day, named for the patron saint of Scotland and which is normally a celebration of Scottish culture and heritage. Instead, Scotland’s leader ordered flags at government buildings to be lowered to half-staff after the tragedy. “This is a black day for Glasgow and Scotland, but it’s also St. Andrew’s Day, and it’s a day we can take pride and courage in how we respond to adver-

sity and tragedy,” Scottish First Minister Alex Salmond said. There may be more bad news. Police said a rescue and recovery operation is ongoing and that it wasn’t clear what will be found once the aircraft’s wreckage is removed. The process may take days. That means more waiting for people who don’t know if their loved ones were in The Clutha at the fateful moment when the helicopter fell from the sky, directly hitting the riverside drinking establishment. Witnesses said it seemed to fall straight down into the roof of the pub. The crash Friday at around 10:30 p.m. sent dozens of patrons fleeing through a cloud of dust. Witnesses spoke of people streaming out of the building covered in blood, with gashes and other injuries. Ambulances rushed to the scene, taking the injured to nearby hospitals. Local resident Paul

Dundas, 26, said he heard a loud bang and looked out of his window to see a plume of dust rising above the pub. “At first I thought it was a firework,” he said. “People were covered in blood and dust. Other people were dragging them away from the bar and trying to get them out. Everyone was in shock, but people were helping and asking strangers if they were OK. I saw a couple help each other clean up their faces.” Chief Constable Stephen House said three of the dead were found in the helicopter, which was carrying two police officers and a civilian pilot. They “were our colleagues,” House said, bowing his head and taking a long pause and swallow. He said the five other fatalities were found inside the building and that 14 people remained hospitalized with serious injuries.

Iran nuclear deal aids carmakers By Ali Akbar Dareini Associated Press

TEHRAN, IRAN — The nuclear deal struck by Iran and six world powers will put more rubber on the road in the Islamic Republic. The country’s major carmakers stand ready to start receiving parts again from French firms PSA Peugeot Citroen and Renault when the sanctions ease. That could see Iran’s stalled car production again take off, proving a boon to local automakers and potentially draw in more foreign investment from other manufacturers hoping to break into the market. The nuclear deal struck in Geneva puts the brakes

on the most sensitive parts of Iran’s uranium enrichment program in return for relief from economic sanctions. The sanctions expected to lift include those affecting Iran’s auto industry, its petrochemical exports, the sale of gold and other precious metals anad the supply of spare parts for Iranian airplanes. Iran’s auto industry has been particularly hard hit by the sanctions. Car production in Iran this year fell by 72 percent compared to 2011, when it produced some 1.6 million cars. The sanctions relief, due to start in early January, allows for the French companies to resume auto parts to Iran’s biggest carmakers Iran Khodro and

SAIPA. Some 100,000 Iranian auto workers have been laid off because of sanctions. Plants in the country now run at less than half their capacity. Officials at an international automobile conference that began Saturday in Tehran eagerly welcomed the deal. “Iran’s global standing in car production, which was 13, has fallen (due to sanctions). I’m sure Iran will be able to compensate the fall of its share in the near future,” said Patrick Blain, president of the International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers. “International investors are expected to re-enter Iran’s market soon.”

hen invited to look at recently donated photographs of her family’s movie theater, Peach Madl wasn’t expecting to unleash an investigation into the history of cinemas in the U.S. But what resulted was the discovery that the Plaza Grill and Cinema in Ottawa is likely the oldest operating theater in America, having opened in 1905, predating San Francisco’s Victoria Theatre by three years. Let the news sink in and the shock wear off. A small town in Kansas, far away from the glitz and glamor of Hollywood and New York City, is home to the country’s oldest theater in continuous use.

The historical society has been scanning the photos for three years now, coming across many shots of the town, a lot of which were taken during World War II. Among Muecke’s photos were pictures of someone else’s original photos that dated back to 1905. Those pictures of pictures (the only way to make copies at the time) show folks arriving in horse-drawn carriage to the Ottawa theater — originally called The Bijou, then The Crystal Theatre, and then The Plaza — for some of the first-ever feature films. Deborah Barker, director of the Franklin County Historical Society, wanted more details, so she started digging into old newspapers on file to The discovery find written documentation.

written by Guardian editor Vincent Robb kept revealing astonishing stories. In 1905, circus-like tents would come into town to attract people to see “The Great Train Robbery”; no one knew what a movie theater was back then. Later that year, The Bijou would take residence on the second floor of the Pickrell Building on Main Street, owned by town electrician Fred Beeler. “The movie theater was just a long, narrow hallway,” Plaza owner Peach Madl says. “And people didn’t sit because the features just lasted 10 minutes. They stood there to see projections and something moving. It was so unique for the time.” Barker also found a story about the stage still sitting behind the double screen today, where a piano player would play music during silent films. On March 2, 1917, The Crystal Theatre survived a fire during which a piano player by the name of Professor Mapes continuously played while instructing people how to exit the building in the safest manner.

IN 1905, CIRCUS-LIKE TENT ATTRACTS PEOPLE to see “The Great Train Robbery” in Ottawa. More than 105 years later, Ottawa’s theater, now called the Plaza Grill and Cinema, is still operating, and it’s believed to be the oldest such theater in the United States. A recent donation of photographic negatives to the Franklin County Historical Society led to the discovery. The date would be two years before the current Guinness Book of World Records says the oldest operating cinema opened. Below, the Plaza, at 209 S. Main St. in Ottawa, is pictured today.

Should â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Gardensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; be required holiday viewing?


ust hours before leaving for my big Thanksgiving dinner, I curled up on the couch with our cats Thursday morning and watched a movie that I suddenly realized was strangely and completely appropriate for the holiday season. As 79-year-old former socialite Edith Bouvier Beale and her 57-year-old live-in daughter Edie sat on their respective beds in their pajamas eating ice cream out of individual tubs in the classic 1976 documentary â&#x20AC;&#x153;Grey Gardens,â&#x20AC;? it struck me as a beautiful family moment. Here are these two women living in a dilapidated 28-room mansion, bound together by equal measures of guilt and need for companionship, â&#x20AC;&#x153;performingâ&#x20AC;? for Albert and David Maysles, the award-winning documentarians who would soon turn them into cult icons. Of course, they were just arguing amongst themselves and telling stories, but the hilarious, self-aware banter of the Beales has since become a rallying cry for eccentrics everywhere. Little Edieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unique fashion sense (sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never seen without a scarf around her head in the entire film) and self-described â&#x20AC;&#x153;staunchâ&#x20AC;? personality inspired a piece in Vogue magazine, countless photo shoots around the world, and earned her diva status in gay culture. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Grey Gardensâ&#x20AC;? became the first documentary to ever be adapted into a musical, and inspired two more plays and an Emmy-winning HBO film starring Jessica Lange and

ERIC MELIN Drew Barrymore. A new 2K digital restoration of the film is brand new on Blu-ray from The Criterion Collection, packaged with its 2006 follow-up feature â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Beales of Grey Gardens,â&#x20AC;? which was put together from additional footage shot at the time

of its predecessor. Some people see â&#x20AC;&#x153;Grey Gardens,â&#x20AC;? which showcases the isolated, interdependent relationship of Big Edie and Little Edie â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the aunt and first cousin of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis â&#x20AC;&#x201D; as exploitation, but I disagree. The movie goes beyond fly-on-the-wall cinema verite because the Maysles gained the trust of their subjects in order to get deeply personal footage â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and the Beales genuinely loved the attention, even competing with each other for it. Unlike many documentaries, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Grey Gardensâ&#x20AC;? is clear about the fact that a twoman team is present at all times. Sometimes you hear the men conversing with the Beales, and Albert even frames himself into one memorable shot, looking through a mirror. At one point, each

woman was well-known among the upper-crust social circles of the Hamptons. Big Edie was a talented singer (in the film, the elder Beale sings along to a record of her singing when she was young), and her daughter once pursued a career as a dancer in New York City. By 1952, however, that was all over and Little Edie â&#x20AC;&#x201D; who was 35, the same age as Big Edie when she and her husband were separated â&#x20AC;&#x201D; returned home to live with her mother permanently. The house fell into disrepair, and by 1971 it was raided by the

health department, who found the women without running water, living in squalor. Maybe â&#x20AC;&#x153;Grey Gardensâ&#x20AC;? has already become a regular film for holiday viewing in some circles. It certainly is as deep and honest a portrayal of a unique family relationship as has ever been put to film. On one hand, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a celebration of unconventional lifestyles. The Beales lived independently, and rarely left the house. Everything they needed was delivered, and although they lived in poverty, they had each other. The dialogue is so funny and revealing, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a wonder it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t scripted. Because of their natural wit and eccentricity, the movie is entertaining as hell â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and it can be used as a litmus test for oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s acceptance of people who live in the margins of society. On the other hand, the movie can be seen as tragedy. Echoes of regret and unfulfilled dreams ring out through the entire film. Little Edie says numerous times that she still sees herself as a little girl, and her youthful exuberance illustrates it, especially as she puts together an impromptu dance for the camera. The Beales were delighted with â&#x20AC;&#x153;Grey Gardensâ&#x20AC;? because they were totally comfortable in their skin. As Albert Maysles said, they trusted

the â&#x20AC;&#x153;vulnerability of being themselves.â&#x20AC;? There was no difference between what was filmed and what wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. On the commentary track, the filmmaker mentions that when he and his brother stopped filming and began packing their gear up outside, the dialogue between the two women never changed. The Beales were still performing â&#x20AC;&#x201D; for each other. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Eric is a longtime entertainment writer. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also the editor-in-chief of Scene-Stealers and on-air film critic for KCTV5.

A wintry mix of films for everyone this season By Eric Melin

Thanksgiving marks the beginning of the lucrative and crowded holiday movie season, and this year, there’s a strong mix of family films, potential blockbusters, awards movies and niche genre fare. Here’s a look at what Hollywood has in store from now until Christmas: “Frozen” — Following the success of 2010’s “Tangled” and last year’s “Wreck-it-Ralph,” Walt Disney Animation Studios releases another computeranimated effort, this one a loose adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s acclaimed fairy tale “The Snow Queen.” Pixar’s John Lasseter is one of the producers, and it’s been reported that inspiration for the musical was drawn from such disparate sources as “The Sound of Music” and the 1947 psychological drama “Black Narcissus.” Opened Nov. 27. “Nebraska” — Oscarwinning writer/director Alexander Payne (“Sideways,” “The Descendants”) goes blackand-white for the tale of a father and son (Bruce Dern and Will Forte) on a road trip to collect lottery winnings. Dern won Best Actor at the Cannes Film Festival this summer, and the film promises to be another bittersweet family drama, even though it’s the first one Payne hasn’t written. Opened Nov. 27. “Out of the Furnace” — The 2009 drama “Crazy Heart” won Jeff Bridges his long-overdue best actor trophy for playing an alcoholic country music has-been, but the character was a creation of new writer/director Scott Cooper. Cooper’s followup to his acclaimed debut is a thriller starring Christian Bale and Casey Affleck as brothers who are separated by jail time and a violent crime syndicate in the Rust Belt. Opens Dec. 6. “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” — Part two of Peter Jackson’s three-part adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s pre-”Lord of the Rings” novel has something to do with a quest, a treasure and a dragon. What more do you need to know? Opens Dec. 13. “American Hustle” — Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence and Robert De Niro — all veterans of David O. Russell’s last two films “The Fighter” and “Silver Linings Playbook” — re-team with the writer/director for the 1970s-set story of New Jersey political corruption and mafia ties. The original script was on Hollywood’s blacklist of the best unproduced screenplays before Russell rescued it and added his contribution. One of the most anticipated films of the year, it opens Dec. 18. “Anchorman: The Legend Continues” — The sequel that has both Dodge and Ben & Jerry’s shelling out cash for product tie-ins and commercials finally arrives just in time for Christmas. Gleefully sexist ’70s broadcaster Rod Burgundy may be Will Ferrell’s most bizarre onscreen creation, but the absurdity of San Diego’s sassiest newsman — and constant reruns on cable TV — have made him an audience favorite. Steve Carell, Paul Rudd and David Koechner are back with Burgundy for some fun on a new 24-hour news channel in this sequel. Opens Dec. 20. “Saving Mr. Banks” — Walt Disney (Tom Hanks) tries to persuade “Mary Poppins” author P.L. Travers (Emma Thompson) to let him adapt the children’s novel for the big screen in this Disney film, which is based on a true story. Opens Dec. 20. “Inside Llewyn Davis” — Oscar Isaac received good notices at Cannes for his singing and his

Executive producer lifts curtain behind popular British program By Mary Ann Gwinn The Seattle Times

SEATTLE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Rebecca Eaton has produced PBSâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Masterpieceâ&#x20AC;? programs since the days of Alistair Cooke. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s taken tea with British superstars Helen Mirren, Kenneth Branagh, Daniel Radcliffe, Diana Rigg and last but not least, Maggie Smith, aka The Dowager Countess of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Downton Abbey.â&#x20AC;? And, because she has a new book out â&#x20AC;&#x201D; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Making Masterpiece: 25 Years Behind the Scenes at Masterpiece Theatre and Masterpiece Mystery! on PBSâ&#x20AC;? (Viking) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s taking questions. Like any devoted â&#x20AC;&#x153;Masterpieceâ&#x20AC;? viewer, one wants to look smart for such a conversation, with big-issue queries lined up: Has â&#x20AC;&#x153;Downtonâ&#x20AC;? given PBS and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Masterpieceâ&#x20AC;? a new cachet with younger viewers? How will PBS deal with the graying of its viewership? But an insistent, unladylike voice is stamping her foot, giving me a slight headache: Why did you kill off Matthew Crawley? Why do we have to wait a whole year for three measly episodes of the new â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sherlockâ&#x20AC;?? What is Benedict Cumberbatch really like? Eaton was ready for all inquiries.

POETâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S SHOWCASE


It was kind of decided for me. There was interest from a publisher to have a book; thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a wave you want to catch. Everything is so

cy of pledge breaks. How does PBS ensure that it will still have an audience in 20 years? I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have magic bullets. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just a PBS problem. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a broadcast television problem. Many, many people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t watch television. A lot of young people may not know what their public-television station is. They will be drawn to our programming, and when they get it they will like it ... but the connection between seeing something and supporting it is abstract. PBS is largely funded by members â&#x20AC;&#x201D; government funding is only 15 percent. Smarter people than me are thinking about it night and day. My contribution is to continue to find programs that will satisfy contributing members and make sure younger people know about us. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Making Masterpieceâ&#x20AC;? is really two stories â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the history of the program, and your own. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re candid about how your family life suffered because of the demands of your job. What do you hope people take away from the book? Of course, I want people to read the book and watch â&#x20AC;&#x153;Masterpiece.â&#x20AC;? ... I would want people to realize that everybody has a story. I knew I had a story about â&#x20AC;&#x153;Masterpiece,â&#x20AC;? but I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think there was a story in me, but they kept saying no, we would like your story. I started thinking long and hard about my parents, my family, the arc of events that has happened to me, the luck that I had, the ups and downs of it, and now, writing in a very sweet moment of success. I do believe that my favorite thing is hearing peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stories, whether theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re on â&#x20AC;&#x153;Masterpieceâ&#x20AC;? or in a book or sitting next to someone at a dinner party. I love it. That is the richness of life to me.

Stepdaughter’s manipulations annoy wife Dear Annie: I am in my 60s and have been married for 10 years to a wonderful man. It’s a second marriage for both of us. He was a widower, and I was divorced. The problem is his daughter, “Emily,” who has been a thorn in our sides from Day One. When we married, we signed a prenup. My husband has investments, which are primarily in his children’s names. My house was paid for, and his wasn’t, so he sold it and we moved into mine. It’s still in my name because I intend to leave it to my children after both of us pass on. Emily has been complaining to her father that he should have his name on the deed to my house. I am not willing to do this, because if we divorce, he gets 50 percent of all of my assets, including the house. I don’t have a lot of money, I don’t make a lot of money, and I also don’t

Annie’s Mailbox

Marcy Sugar and Kathy Mitchell

ask my husband for money. Yet, Emily tells him I’m only after his money. I think Emily is evil and mean, and I don’t want to be around her. She gives bill collectors our phone number, so we get harassed about her missing payments. The reason she wants her father’s name on my house is because she wants to inherit it. I am sick of her manipulations, but not sure what to do. Her father always takes her side, and it makes me wonder how much he loves me. — Fed Up

A new twist on feel-good holiday fare “Christmas in Conway” (8 p.m., ABC) offers a slight variation on the Hallmark movie formula. In most holiday movies of this sort, fate moves a workaholic woman from the city to a more bucolic environment, where she finds love in the arms of a down-to-earth hunk. In “Conway,” nurse Natalie (Mandy Moore) is left in her small town by her ambitious boyfriend’s transfer to Chicago. Her new assignment, providing hospice home care for Suzy (Mary-Louise Parker), the dying wife of cantankerous construction company owner Duncan Mayor (Andy Garcia), puts her in close proximity to a handsome landscaper, Tommy (Riley Smith), who’s working on elaborate Christmas decorations for Duncan’s nosy neighbor (Cheri Oteri). A gaggle of busybodies and their gossipy barbs provide comic relief from Suzy’s tragic story. Things aren’t helped by Duncan’s prickly personality. His way of coping with his wife’s imminent death is to keep society — particularly Natalie — at arm’s length. The film’s real mystery is when — not if — Natalie decides to break it off with her yuppie boyfriend, and how she will help Duncan come to grips with his feelings. The fact that the neighborhood’s decorating contest helps him do so serves as a reminder that this is very much a Hallmark movie. O For fans of a certain “Masterpiece” presentation, we’re entering that most wonderful time of the year. Susan Sarandon hosts “Return to Downton Abbey” (8 p.m., PBS, check local listings). This look back at past episodes of the popular series includes a glimpse at the fourth season, which begins Jan. 5. Tonight’s Other Highlights O Catch up on the first five

episodes of the acclaimed French supernatural miniseries “The Returned” (2:45 p.m. to 9 p.m., Sundance). O Performers, including Jennifer Hudson, Evelyn “Champagne” King, T.I., Chaka Khan and Tamar Braxton, appear on “The 2013 Soul Train Awards” (7 p.m., BET). O The Washington Redskins host the New York Giants on “Sunday Night Football” (7:20 p.m., NBC). O A former client remembers Alicia in his will on “The Good Wife” (8 p.m., CBS). O A calm arrives before a renewed storm on “The Walking Dead” (8 p.m., AMC). O Brody takes a high-risk mission on “Homeland” (8 p.m., Showtime).

BIRTHDAYS Actor-director Woody Allen is 78. World Golf Hall of Famer Lee Trevino is 74. Singer Dianne Lennon (The Lennon Sisters) is 74. Rock musician John Densmore (The Doors) is 69. Actresssinger Bette Midler is 68. Singer Gilbert O’Sullivan is 67. Actor Treat Williams is 62. Country singer Kim Richey is 57. Actress Charlene Tilton is 55. Actresscomedian Sarah Silverman is 43.

Dear Fed Up: Your problem isn’t Emily so much as it is your husband, who refuses to tell her to knock it off. Please talk to him (do not badmouth his daughter) and explain that your prenup protects both of you and preserves your assets for your heirs. Reassure him that if you die, he can live in the house for the rest of his life, but then it passes to your children. How he handles that will determine whether he can be trusted to put you first. Dear Annie: My wife and I recently married. The wedding was in Texas, but most of our family lives elsewhere. Although we were disappointed, we understood that many folks would be unable to attend due to the travel and hotel costs. Here’s the problem. Not one of these relatives sent so much as a card, let alone a gift. In the


For Sunday, Dec. 1 This year you will have a new beginning. Not only will your luck be accelerated, especially in the summer, but your creativity also will heighten. If you are single, you may be wading through suitors. If you are attached, a newfound closeness marks your interactions. 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) ++++ Have you neglected someone because of the recent holiday flurry? Use today to make up for lost time. Tonight: Tap into your imagination. Taurus (April 20-May 20) +++++ Understand that everyone needs time onstage as the lead actor. Like it or not, a close friend or loved one might steal the scene. Tonight: Act as if it were Friday night. Gemini (May 21-June 20) +++ The issue is one of choices. Do you want to go out, party and play the day away? Or do you want to be practical and start cleaning up from recent festivities? Either way, you will be tired. Tonight: Go for an early bedtime. Cancer (June 21-July 22) ++++ Your popularity has no effect on your plans, and there is very little you can do about it but adjust. Others mean well, and they want to use this extra time to be with you. Tonight: Forget about tomorrow. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) ++++ Understand that there are many ways to approach a situation. Each one has pros and cons. Tonight: Live it up, Leo-style! Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) ++++ You can be subtle, but today is not one of those days when

past few years, we have attended several family events and always gave gifts. Sometimes we had to travel great distances and pay for hotels and plane fares. Their failure to return the favor leaves a bad taste in our mouths and makes us not want to attend any events they plan in the future. — Confused in Texas Dear Confused: Many people feel that if they did not attend the event, they do not need to send a gift. But please do not treat your wedding as a fundraiser. While a gift is welcome, it should not be the point of the invitation. And gifts may still be forthcoming. We hope they will extend their good wishes, but you cannot demand that they do so. — Send questions to, or Annie’s Mailbox, P.O. Box 118190 Chicago, IL 60611.

others will experience you in that way. Tonight: At home. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) +++ The good news is that stores still have merchandise on sale, and you could make a point of finishing your holiday shopping. Tonight: Celebrate over freshly made eggnog. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) ++++ Understand your options before you decide on any plans. You might just decide to put on some Christmas music and do your own thing. Tonight: Make it your treat. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) ++++ You’ll want to deal with different matters than what is being dropped on your plate. Deal with them, as you will want some free time in the next 24 hours. Tonight: Like a magnet, you attract others. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) +++++ Listen to a family member or friend’s set of plans carefully, as there could be a problem. How you express your thoughts could be directly reflected in how they are received. A discussion needs to happen. Tonight: Opt for some peace and quiet. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) ++++ Be considerate and check in with a friend who might not have had a good few days. You might want to consider including this person in your plans. Tonight: Find your friends. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) +++ Instead of thinking about someone at a distance, why not pick up the phone and say “hello”? That act will mean a lot. Be imaginative. Tonight: Get a head start on tomorrow. — The astrological forecast should be read for entertainment only.
