From festive to funky By Elliot Hughes


nyone willing to branch out for their Christmas tree this year will once again have plenty to choose from at the 27th annual Lawrence Festival of Trees at Liberty Hall, which opened its doors Monday morning. The imaginative wreaths and trees donated by the public will be on display from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. tonight and 10 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday. Tonight also will feature a live tree auction at 7 p.m., with a silent auction for wreaths concluding at 8:30. The suggested donation to attend is $3.

The trees: Nearly 60 trees — many of them alight — are on display. Some contain the standard Christmas articles such as snowflakes, angels and candy canes. Others are festooned with odd ornaments, from crayons to spiders to ties. Themes range from Kansas Jayhawks athletics and aquatic life to the Mexican holiday The Day of the Dead. Some trees are shaved of their pine needles, and some are constructed out of paper and other materials. The donors: Those who constructed the trees are about as diverse as the trees themselves. Families, artists, clubs and organizations of various kinds make up this year’s donors. The Lawrence

High Geography Club, Lawrence Women’s Network and the Clements and Soto families are among them. The prices: Judy Culley, executive director of The Shelter, Inc., said auctioned trees can range from $100 to several thousand dollars. The proceeds: Culley said The Shelter had a net profit of over $50,000 last year and has done better and worse in year’s past. The Lawrence-based nonprofit provides emergency assistance to families, children and juveniles. It supplies emergency residential care, on-call law enforcement assistance, crisis intervention and foster care services for those in Douglas County northeast Kansas.

The National Endowment for the Humanities announced Monday that it will award a $275,000 grant in matching funds to the Lawrence Public Library for various humanities programs. For now, the grant is, in theory, the largest donation in the library’s history. The grant is not an outright contribution, but is instead contingent on the library’s fundraising efforts over the next several years, according to Kathleen Morgan, executive director of the Lawrence Public Library Foundation. Morgan said Monday the grant gives the library five years to raise enough money to max out the match. The NEH will meet 30 percent of Allen all donations up until it has contributed the $275,000 maximum. “We were very hopeful for this,� said Brad Allen, director of the library. “We’re glad the NEH saw the value of what we’re trying to do. We feel like public libraries are really able to get that whole idea of what the humanities are out to a broader group of people. “We’re over the moon.� The money will go toward a speakers’ series, community reading programs and technology purchases that would enable the library to digitize local records and place them online. There is also an allowance for administrative funds, Morgan said. The NEH is an independent federal agency that supports research and learning in Please see LIBRARY, page 2A

Kansas making a play to land Boeing manufacturing plant “

By Scott Rothschild

TOPEKA — Kansas is making a pitch to persuade the Boeing Co. to brings its new 777X jet plant to the state. “We’re back in it,� said Gov. Sam Brownback recently. “We’re going to take a shot at it. I don’t know if we are going to be able to get anywhere.� In Missouri, Gov. Jay Nixon called a special legislative session starting today to approve an economics incentive package to lure Boeing. “Building this next-generation commercial aircraft in Missouri would create thousands of jobs across our state

Kansas officials were tight-lipped about any proposals they were working on. Eileen Hawley, a spokeswoman for Brownback, would say only that Kansas has “world-class aviation capability� and would be an excellent location for the plant. Boeing initially offered to build its 777X in Washington state but sought concessions from union machinists. After the union rejected a proposed contract, Boeing started considering other locations. Officials in Washington still plan to compete, and the state approved a package of tax breaks valued at $9 billion through 2040 during

Last year, Boeing stunned Kansas officials when it decided to relocate all of its Wichita operations to various locations outside Kansas, affecting 2,100 employees. At that time, Brownback said the decision was “very disappointing to all of us. Dedication and hard work of generations of Kansans built the success that the Boeing company enjoys today.� — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

Ag Secretary Rodman steps down By Scott Rothschild

TOPEKA — Kansas Agriculture Secretary Dale Rodman, who was the driving force behind moving the agency from Topeka to Manhattan and a proposed repeal of the state’s corporate ban on farming, is stepping down. Gov. Sam Brownback on Monday announced that Rodman will leave the agriculture department next week and be replaced by Jackie McClaskey, who is currently deputy secretary of the agency. Brownback said he was grateful for Rodman’s service and commitment to Kansas agriculture. Brownback spokeswoman Eileen Hawley stated: “When Dale agreed to serve as Secretary of Agriculture in 2010, he committed to the Governor that he would serve for two to three years. He has fulfilled that commitment and is now stepping down to return to his

home in Texas.” Earlier this year, Rodman announced that KDA was moving from Topeka to Manhattan. Rodman had said having KDA adjacent to Kansas State University, the future National Bio and Agro-Defense Facility and other ag-related entities would enhance the overall effectiveness of the department. Under the proposal, KDA will leave the Mills Building in downtown Topeka no later than June 30, 2014, and move into a soon-to-be-constructred, three-story, 50,000 square-foot office building in the KSU Foundation Research Park. The move will affect approximately 150 employees. Rodman, who had worked for 37 years for Cargill Inc., became secretary when Brownback took office in January 2011. During his tenure, Rodman also has called for repeal of the state’s decades-old limits on corporate farming. The issue is expected to be debated during the next

He will continue to serve in that position. Incoming secretary McClaskey grew up on a small farm in Girard. She has been with the department since 2011 before being named deputy secretary in July. Before joining KDA she served as assistant dean of the College of Agriculture at Kansas State. “Jackie has been a wonderful asset for the Kansas Department of Agriculture,” Brownback said. “Her extensive broad-based experience, along with her hard work ethic makes me confident she will do an outstanding job.” McClaskey also served as press secretary to Brownback when he was a freshman U.S. House member in 1995. — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

feature nationally and internationally recognizable authors. She said the library’s recently enlarged fundraising efforts have supplied an average of $150,000 to $200,000 of donations every year since its renovation was approved in 2010. Any donations made to the library’s humanities programs will yield the 30 percent match from the NEH, according to Morgan. “I think that the NEH has helped us raise funds even more because people know that their gift gives us even more with this federal, matching grant,” Allen said. “People will see there’s an added value.”

The new grant is the latest in a string of victories for the library. The funds from the Ross and Marianna Beach Foundation, which were announced in August, were a recordbreaking private grant for the library. And next summer, an $18 million renovation of the library’s main Vermont Street location is expected to be completed. “What it does, it puts us on really exciting and strong footing to do some really spectacular things at the new library,” Morgan said. “The people in the community are the beneficiaries of this. Not only are we going to have a wonderful, new facility, but programming to match it.”

KU names new head of Honors Program

Percolator among first to accept Bitcoin as currency By Peter Hancock

Art collectors in Lawrence looking for an original painting by a local artist might be able to find one at the Lawrence Percolator for around $250. Or, in lieu of cash, they might pick it up for roughly one-quarter to one-third of a Bitcoin, depending on the day. The Lawrence Percolator announced this week that it is now accepting transactions in Bitcoin, making it possibly the first local merchant in Lawrence to accept the internetbased digital currency that is now starting to make its way into the mainstream online retail industry. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once you learn the system, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s much easier to make transactions in Bitcoin than in cash or credit card,â&#x20AC;? said Walt Ohnesorge-Fick, a volunteer member of the Percolatorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s board of directors. The Percolator, 913 Rhode Island St., is a nonprofit gallery that describes itself as being â&#x20AC;&#x153;dedicated to community involvement and area artists.â&#x20AC;? Bitcoin was launched in 2009 as an alternative currency used mainly for internet transactions, but its precise origins remain something of a mystery. Since then its value has risen sharply, from about $30 per Bitcoin around this time last year, to a recent high of just over $1,000 per Bitcoin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I learned about the coin in 2009 during my grad program at San Francisco Please see BITCOIN, page 4A

Mankato, Minn. The 320-mile horseback ride ends on Dec. 26, the anniversary of the 1862 hanging of 38 Dakota (or Sioux), the largest simultaneous execution in U.S. history. Lengkeek said he grew up around tribal elders who harbored anger and hatred from the hangings, even generations after they hap-

pened. On one of the earliest rides, Lengkeek said, white passers-by shouted obscenities and threw trash at the riders from their cars. Lengkeek said the ride brought people together and that community members now come out to see the riders, offering hot coffee and cookies. He said he wished the same elders were around to â&#x20AC;&#x153;healâ&#x20AC;? by taking part in the event. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the power of them horses, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the power of when our people get together and pray,â&#x20AC;?

A Kansas University history professor will take over as head of the University Honors Program at KU in January, when outgoing director Kathleen McCluskeyFawcett retires. Jonathan Earle started teaching at KU in 1997 after receiving his doctorate from Princeton University. Very early on in his career, Earle got a chance to Earle teach a class through the Honors Program, which provides classes, seminars, advising, special lectures and events for a select number of students admitted into the program based on academic records and other criteria. Earle was â&#x20AC;&#x153;instantly blown away by the quality of the students,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m still in touch with most of those students. They helped me learn how to be a college professor.â&#x20AC;? Earle has been teaching and advising with the Honors Program for more than 20 years since then, and he applied for the position of director after McCluskeyFawcett announced her retirement.

But financial experts caution people against speculating in Bitcoin value as a strategy for getting rich quickly because its exchange rate can fluctuate wildly, even over the course of a single day. The website, for example, quoted an exchange price of $799.99 Monday afternoon, down sharply from the previous 24-hour average of $989.03. Although Bitcoin is commonly referred to as a kind of currency, Kansas University law professor Rick Levy said it really isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. And that, he said, explains why itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legal to use and is not considered a form of counterfeiting. Article I of the U.S. Constitution gives Congress the power to coin money. But Levy said Bitcoin is not â&#x20AC;&#x153;legal tenderâ&#x20AC;? and nobody

has a legal obligation to accept it. Its value, therefore, is determined by whatever people are willing to accept in exchange for it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Historically, there have been other forms of madeup currency,â&#x20AC;? Levy said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For example, companies would pay their workers in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;scripâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; that was used in the company store, and the military did something similar in other countries during times of war.â&#x20AC;? Ohnesorge-Fick said the gallery hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t yet completed any transactions in Bitcoin, although he said he has made several purchases himself using the alternative currency. He said artists who sell their work through the Lawrence Percolator can decide for themselves whether to accept payment in Bitcoin or U.S. dollars.



Chet Eagleman, a Fort Peck Sioux, rode in last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dakota 38 ride and helped organize Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event at Haskell. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some people still harbor negative thoughts, but the ride really is about reconciliation,â&#x20AC;? he said. Two Hawks traveled to Mankato last year to greet Dakota 38 riders when they arrived. There, he performed the same memorial song that he did Monday at Haskell, which his father wrote. Two Hawks played a hand drum while singing the song, as well as a prayer in Sioux. A Haskell news release described Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ceremony and film screening as an opportunity for students and staff to reconcile and empower themselves as well as explore events of the Dakota War of 1862. In September 1862, a commission of military officers established by Henry Sibley began try-

ing Dakota men accused of participating in the U.S. Dakota War, according to the Minnesota Historical Societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s usdakotawar. org project. Of 392 prisoners tried, 303 were sentenced to death. President Lincoln and government lawyers then reviewed trial transcripts of all 303 men, and when only two were found guilty of rape, Lincoln expanded the criteria to include those who had participated in â&#x20AC;&#x153;massacresâ&#x20AC;? of civilians rather than just â&#x20AC;&#x153;battles.â&#x20AC;? He then forwarded a list of 39 names to Sibley. One got a last-minute reprieve, and 38 were hanged at Mankato on Dec. 26, 1862. Miller said he was humbled to be at Haskell and encouraged attendees to watch the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dakota 38â&#x20AC;? film. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The old people will tell you, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;You have to find out where you came from before you know where youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The other thing is bringing out true history. This is what really happened to our people.â&#x20AC;?

Marine veteran wins award for volunteering The Kansas University Alumni Association named Mike Denning, a 1983 KU graduate who now serves as director of the KU Office of Graduate Military Programs, as its volunteer of the year. The association gave Denning the Dick Wintermote award for public service for his work with the KU Veterans Alumni Chapter. Under Denningâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leadership, the organization has established a 5K run and the Chancellor John Fraser Distinguished Military Graduate Award and has helped support the Wounded Warriors Scholarship Fund. Denning himself entered the Marine Corps after graduating from KU. During his 27 years in the Marines, he served three tours in Iraq and one in Afghanistan.

BOTTLING UP MIGRAINE PAIN â&#x20AC;&#x201D;â&#x20AC;&#x201D;â&#x20AC;&#x201D;â&#x20AC;&#x201D;â&#x20AC;&#x201D;â&#x20AC;&#x201D;â&#x20AC;&#x201D;

Study by KU researchers says avoiding plastic can help prevent headaches By Giles Bruce

Migraine sufferers desperate to reduce or get rid of their pain may have a new treatment method: avoiding plastic. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the hypothesis behind a recent study by researchers at Kansas University Medical Center. Nancy Berman, a professor of anatomy and cell biology at KU Med, and Lydia Vermeer, a postdoctoral fellow in Bermanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lab, say theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve found a link between bisphenol A, a chemical used to harden plastics, and migraines in lab rats. Their study was recentBerman ly published in the journal Toxicological Sciences. â&#x20AC;&#x153; T h e next question is: Does this happen in Vermeer people?â&#x20AC;? B e r m a n said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The only way to find out is to do some kind of clinical trial.â&#x20AC;? While the researchers have yet to do a study featuring humans, they say migraine sufferers should avoid plastics with BPA in the hopes it can relieve their symptoms. To investigate whether avoiding environmental estrogens can prevent or reduce migraines, the KU researchers need funding. But, Berman said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be part of a clinical trial to stop eating plastic.â&#x20AC;? With so little known about what causes migraines, Berman years ago started looking into the connection between the condition and hormones. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a complicated disease thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not very wellunderstood,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nobodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really looked

TWO KANSAS UNIVERSITY RESEARCHERS CONDUCTED A STUDY LINKING MIGRAINE HEADACHES with bisphenol A, also known as BPA, a chemical found in plastic water bottles. at environmental issues in the field of migraine.â&#x20AC;? She eventually found a connection between the disease and estrogen. Berman also discovered a way to test headache medications on lab rats, who, like humans, avoid light, sound, grooming and routine movements when they have headaches. This intrigued Vermeer, who has a background in studying pesticides

and Parkinsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease. The two joined forces, and dosed lab rats with BPA. They hypothesized that BPA, which mimics estrogen in the body, would activate estrogen receptors. The rats with migraines showed significantly worse headache symptoms than those not exposed to the chemical. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hypothesizing that people with migraines do not have more

BPA in their system, but that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re more sensitive to BPA,â&#x20AC;? Vermeer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Many people with migraines are more sensitive to changes in things like estrogen.â&#x20AC;? Several countries, including China, France and Canada, have banned BPA in certain uses. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration, however, has ruled that BPA is safe at low levels, but has ex-

pressed concern about the potential negative effects on the brain, behavior and prostates of fetuses and young children. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why baby bottle and sippy cup makers have eliminated BPA from their products; many manufacturers of infant formula have also stopped using BPA in their cans.

Like it or not, drinking part of most teensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; social lives Kendra: We recently addressed a teenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s request to clarify the limits of confidentiality in therapy, particularly where substance use is concerned. In responding, I wrote, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Although I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t personally condone alcohol or drug use, weekend drinking is common among my peers and rarely has longterm harmful effects.â&#x20AC;? A subsequent letter to the editor (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Harmful Effects,â&#x20AC;? Nov. 22) countered that underage drinking does have long-term effects. But my comment must be taken in the context of the original topic about therapist disclosure, which Wes described as being based on â&#x20AC;&#x153;imminent riskâ&#x20AC;? to the teen. There was no indication that the teen in question met that standard. The letter does suggest a need for better dialog around the real prevalence of teen drinking. As I discussed this with a few teachers and other adults, their stunned reactions surprised me. They seemed a little behind the curve. In my parentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; generation â&#x20AC;&#x201D; at least as they remember it â&#x20AC;&#x201D; underage drinking and smoking were common only among the partiers and the â&#x20AC;&#x153;cool kids.â&#x20AC;? Today, teens that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t drink are anomalies. In fact, according to the 2013 Kansas Communities That Care survey, 71.97 percent of the seniors at my own high school have used alcohol at least once, but only 10.83 percent have used alcohol more than 40 times. Those who drink regularly and significantly during and beyond high school and college are more likely to suffer the long-term effects the writer described. But social drinkers who rarely binge are less likely to see those life-long harmful effects.

A successful year for Headquarters, Inc. By Marcia Epstein

Headquarters, Inc. is trusted and relied upon for services to benefit people across the 105 counties of Kansas, and 2013 has been probably the most successful year in the agencyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history. Since August 2012, the agency has had two programs: Headquarters Counseling Center (HQCC), with free, 24/7, counseling and education programs; and Kansas Youth Suicide Prevention (KYSP). Some of the highlights:

In August 2012, Headquarters was awarded a three-year renewable federal grant of $480,000 per year to build a suicide prevention safety net for 10-24 year old Kansans. This type of grant requires lots of set up, so the activities of Kansas Youth Suicide Prevention really began in 2013.

In January 2013, HQ, Inc. employed five fulltime staff and one parttime staff, as well as about 35 volunteer paraprofessional counselors.

In March 2013, Headquarters Counseling Center was awarded an additional five years ac-


the topic, however, has come from animal studies. No research has yet found a direct link between health problems in humans and BPA. More than 90 percent of Americans have traces of BPA in their bodies, much of it from eating food in containers that contain the chemical. Eliminating plastic and canned packaging has been found to reduce the amount of BPA in urine (plastics with the recycling codes 3 and 7 are likely to contain BPA). More than 1 in 10 Americans suffer from migraine

creditation by the American Association of Suicidology. HQCC is the only center in Kansas with this accreditation, and is the only center in Kansas on the national suicide prevention hotline network. Both are distinctions held since 2001.

In April 2013, Headquarters Counseling Center was awarded the Crisis Center Excellence Award at the annual conference of the American Association of Suicidology.

In July 2013, KYSP provided the first annual Kansas Youth Suicide Prevention conference with attendees from across the state.

In August 2013, KYSP launched, the premier Web resource for suicide prevention activities in Kansas.

Also in August 2013, the first KYSP exemplar project began at Fort Hays State University.

In September 2013, HQCC began providing ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention

headaches â&#x20AC;&#x201D; severe, recurring, throbbing pain on one or both sides of the head. Three times as many woman (20 percent at reproductive age) get migraines as men, thought to be the result of their higher estrogen levels. In addition, more than 10 percent of women have menstrual migraines. But the only way to diagnose the condition is to ask questions about symptoms; there is no physical test for the disease.

Skills Training) for the Douglas County community through Steve Lopes and I, the only two ASIST trainers in Douglas County. ASIST is an evidence-based training listed on the national Best Practices Registry for Suicide Prevention.

During Suicide Prevention Week, Sept. 8-14, the HQCC-KYSP Facebook #KindnessTools campaign reached hundreds daily.

Also in September 2013, a long-term donor offered a dollar-fordollar match to the first $25,000 donations to the upcoming annual donor appeal, pending Board of Directors approval.

In October 2013, nearly 25 people participated in our annual retreat for survivors of suicide loss at The Light Center, southwest of Lawrence.

Also in October 2013, then-Director and then-Director-of-Volunteers were notified that several KU Student Senators were working toward re-storing some funding for HQCC. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Marcia Epstein is the former director of Headquarters, Inc.

Berman said the studyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s results could be a breakthrough because of the lack of new migraine drugs coming down the pipeline. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need a physician or even FDA approval to reduce the amount of plastic you consume,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The good thing about our idea is itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not going to hurt you.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Reporter Giles Bruce can be reached at 832-7233.

Bonner Springs school sued over prayer fliers Associated Press

BONNER SPRINGS â&#x20AC;&#x201D; An Arizona group has filed a federal lawsuit accusing a suburban Kansas City middle school of violating a studentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s First Amendment rights by prohibiting the student from handing out fliers promoting a prayer event. The Alliance Defending Freedom, a conservative Christian group based in Scottsdale, Ariz., that advocates for religious rights, contends a counselor at

Robert E. Clark Middle School in Bonner Springs violated the studentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rights to free speech and equal protection by refusing to allow the student to post fliers promoting the Sept. 25 â&#x20AC;&#x153;See You at the Poleâ&#x20AC;? event, a national event in which teens pray around their school flagpoles. The group contends in the lawsuit filed Nov. 26 in federal court in Kansas City, Kan., that the counselor told the student the fliers, which contained Bible verses, could not be

posted or distributed at school because of their religious content. The ADF, which filed the lawsuit on behalf of the student identified only as â&#x20AC;&#x153;K.R.,â&#x20AC;? also said the district has a policy banning distribution of religious materials on school grounds but allows other types of materials to be posted and distributed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This denial of K.R.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s religious materials, while permitting secular posters, flyers, and materials from other students, constitutes viewpoint dis-

McCluskey-Fawcett said she was â&#x20AC;&#x153;very pleasedâ&#x20AC;? with the choice of Earle to head the program. She and Earle have already begun meeting to discuss the transition process and prepare Earle for the new job. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have a very long list of things to go over with Jonathan,â&#x20AC;? she said. McCluskey-Fawcett will show Earle the ropes when it comes to budgeting, scheduling, staffing, fundraising and so forth, but she said the job is Earleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to make of what he wants. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not my job to tell the next person what his or her agenda is,â&#x20AC;? she said of the role of new director. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the wonderful things about this job is you have tremendous latitude to try creative things.â&#x20AC;? In the last four and a half years that McCluskeyFawcett was director, she oversaw the growth of the program, which increased its student capacity by 45 percent, to 400 students, this year, and has helped win some â&#x20AC;&#x153;very largeâ&#x20AC;? estate gifts. Much of her focus has also been on using the program to attract students to KU who otherwise might attend elite colleges. Earle, who has also served as assistant director for programming at the Dole Institute of Politics and will continue teaching history once he begins as honors director, said one of his priorities will be to help align the program more closely with honors programs at other top universities. Accomplishing this would likely entail introducing a capstone project to the honors program, which might include a thesis or research project, to â&#x20AC;&#x153;show us you can apply what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve already learned,â&#x20AC;? he said. Earle also wants to offer honors students instruction in things like purchasing and cooking healthy foods and managing household finances to help fill â&#x20AC;&#x153;gaps in what we teach college students.â&#x20AC;? As for McCluskey Fawcett, she has no immediate plans for post-retirement life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been overscheduled for the last 40 years of my life,â&#x20AC;? she said.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t encourage students to go, but we did announce it,â&#x20AC;? Brungardt said. The district has a policy prohibiting distribution of religious materials on school grounds because â&#x20AC;&#x153;different entities request to distribute information to students constantly. If all entities who requested were allowed it would be disruptive to the school environment,â&#x20AC;? Brungardt said in an email. Doug Bonney, legal director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Kansas,

said he was not familiar with the lawsuit, but he questioned whether the counselor had the authority to stop the student from handing out the fliers. But Bonney said the school could be faulted if the studentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s posters were singled out because of their content. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If in fact the school did prohibit the student from posting a religious message because it was religious, where a secular message would be allowed to stay up ... then the school might have some problems,â&#x20AC;? Bonney said.



crimination, which is unconstitutional in any type of form,â&#x20AC;? the lawsuit said. Dan Brungardt, superintendent for the Bonner Springs/Edwardsville schools, said Monday he had not seen or heard about the lawsuit. He also said the district had not received any complaints from parents or students about anything regarding posting fliers before the prayer event. Brungardt said the event was announced over the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s intercom system.

No suspects in Topeka deaths TOPEKA â&#x20AC;&#x201D; An investigation into the shooting and wounding of a Topeka woman with past drug convictions led to the discovery of the bodies of a brother, her ex-husband and another woman in her home, police said Monday. Topeka police havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t publicly identified any suspects in the triple killings and the shooting, though they said they had a list of people to interview. Authorities were releasing few details about the incidents Sunday afternoon and evening and didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say how the three adults were killed. The investigation began with the shooting of 45-year-old Carla Jean Avery, who was found behind a Topeka restaurant with a life-threatening gunshot wound. Police said she remained in critical condition in a local hospital. They found a car belonging to Avery at a car wash across the street and said it led them to her home, about a half-mile from the restaurant. There, they found the bodies of her 43-year-old brother, Eric Christopher Avery, and her 56-year-old ex-husband, Marvin Louis Woods. A 34-year-old woman also was found dead in the home, but police did not identify her because her family had not been notified. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still putting together the links of the people in the household or any suspects or people weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re wishing to talk to,â&#x20AC;? police Maj. Jerry Stanley said.

Americans increasingly born in twos By Marilynn Marchione Associated Press

BOSTON — In the five years since the “Octomom” case, big multiple births have gone way down but the twin rate has barely budged. Now fertility experts are pushing a new goal: one. A growing number of couples are attempting pregnancy with just a single embryo, helped by new ways to pick the ones most likely to succeed. New guidelines urge doctors to stress this approach. Twins aren’t always twice as nice; they have much higher risks of prematurity and serious health problems. Nearly half of all babies born with advanced fertility help are multiple births, new federal numbers show. Abigail and Ken Ernst of Oldwick, N.J., used the one-embryo approach to conceive Lucy, a daughter born in September. It “just seemed the most normal, the most natural way” to conceive and avoid a highrisk twin pregnancy, the new mom said. Not all couples feel that way, though. Some can only afford one try with in vitro fertilization, or IVF, so they insist that at least two embryos be used to boost their odds, and view twins as two for the price of one. Many patients “are telling their physicians ‘I want twins,’” said Barbara Collura, president of Resolve, a support and advocacy

ABIGAIL ERNST POSES with her 2-month-old daughter, Lucy, in their Oldwick, N.J., home last month. Ernst and her husband, Ken, conceived Lucy by using only one embryo through in vitro fertilization. With nearly half of all babies born using advanced fertility help being multiple births, doctors are now urging more couples to attempt pregnancy with just a single embryo. group. “We as a society think twins are healthy and always come out great. There’s very little reality” about the increased medical risks for babies and moms, she said. The 2009 case of a California woman who had octuplets using IVF focused attention on the issue of big multiple births, and the numbers have dropped, except for twins. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s most recent numbers show 46 percent of IVF babies are multiples— mostly twins — and 37 percent are born premature. By comparison, only 3 percent of babies born without fertility help are twins and about 12 percent are preterm.

It’s mostly an American problem — some European countries that pay for fertility treatments require using one embryo at a time. The American Society for Reproductive Medicine is trying to make it the norm in the U.S., too. Its guidelines, updated earlier this year, say that for women with reasonable medical odds of success, those under 35 should be offered single embryo transfer and no more than two at a time. The number rises with age, to two or three embryos for women up to 40, since older women have more trouble conceiving. To add heft to the advice, the guidelines say women should be counseled on the risks of mul-

tiple births and embryo transfers and that this discussion should be noted in their medical records. “In 2014, our goal is really to minimize twins,” said Dr. Alan Copperman, medical director of Reproductive Medicine Associates of New York, a Manhattan fertility clinic. “This year I’m talking about two versus one. Several years ago I was talking about three versus two” embryos. The one-at-a-time idea is catching on. Only 4 percent of women under 35 used single embryos in 2007, but nearly 12 percent did in 2011. It’s less common among older women, who account for fewer IVF pregnancies, but it is gaining among them, too.

White House: Visits to health-insurance website surge Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The White House says the government’s health care website received 375,000 visitors on Monday by noon. That’s a surge in use on the first business day

since Obama administration officials declared that the government’s beleaguered online insurance service was now able to accommodate a vast majority of users. White House spokesman Jay Carney says the

White House was expecting such a rush of traffic on Monday. He said the figure covered visits to the site as of noon Monday. The launch of the website on Oct. 1 proved to be disastrous. The adminis-

tration spent the next two months working to upgrade the computer system. Consumers were still experiencing delays on Monday. Carney says users were placed in a queue and advised when to return for speedier service.

GOP governors eye presidential race

Strong foundation

By Doyle McManus Los Angeles Times

The charitable Lawrence Schools Foundation is a huge asset for Lawrence schools and the community.


he assistance provided to the debate and forensics programs at both Lawrence and Free State high schools is another example of how fortunate the Lawrence district is to have the charitable support of the Lawrence Schools Foundation. A story in Monday’s Journal-World told of how the $3,000 grants to each school help pay for students to participate in debate and forensics competitions, which often require travel and overnight hotel stays. Without the assistance of the Schools Foundation, students would have to pay those expenses themselves, or spend time fundraising to offset those costs. With the funding, students can concentrate on honing their debate and public speaking skills instead of figuring out how to cover their expenses. The support of the high school debate and forensics program is just one of many ways the Schools Foundation lends a helping hand to the Lawrence school district. Since its founding in 1983, the foundation has grown to include many efforts to recognize teachers and students and support programs that the district might not otherwise be able to afford. The foundation’s 2012 annual report lists five main areas of emphasis: early childhood education, district-wide grants, student scholarships, teacher awards and the LEAP program, which supports partnerships between schools and local businesses. In 2012, the foundation accepted just over $305,000 in contributions. With those contributions and other income from investments and events, the foundation was able to distribute just over $302,000 in grants, awards, scholarships and program support for the district. These funds not only provide for certain “extras” within the district but also help equalize the opportunities offered to students across socio-economic lines. The Lawrence school district would be far different without the generous support of so many local residents who provide the funds that make the foundation’s programs possible. The community should be grateful for the foundation’s mission and its ongoing efforts to make the Lawrence school district even better.

Don’t look now, but auditions for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination are already under way in Washington. And the flavor of the moment is — governors. First came Chris Christie, the pugnacious governor of New Jersey, who won reelection by a landslide last month and almost immediately headed to the nation’s capital for a burst of speeches and television appearances. Days later, a less pyrotechnic (but equally combative) chief executive arrived to do the Washington media rounds: Scott Walker of Wisconsin. His message was the same: “If we can do it in Wisconsin, we can do it anywhere, even in the nation’s capital.” The point wasn’t subtle. As broken as Washington is, the next president should be an outsider, a hardworking governor, say, who has managed to tame a rebellious legislature and balance his budget.

Governors’ experience It’s a message likely to play well with American voters (and not only Republicans) who have long believed that executive experience is a better qualification for aspiring presidents than time in the windy halls of Congress. Barack Obama was the first legislator elected to the White House in almost half a century, and his wobbly performance managing the launch of his own Affordable Care Act could affect other senators’ chances for years. Neither Christie nor Walker has announced that he’s run-

The challenge none of the potential candidates has met is to show how they’d do it. For all the critiques Walker and Christie have been willing to sling at Washington, they’ve been shy on specific remedies.” ning for president, but — refreshingly — neither pretends to be uninterested either. To many Republicans, yearning for a primary contest less chaotic than the messy epic that produced Mitt Romney in 2012, that field looks decent already: two successful governors — a relatively moderate conservative from the Northeast and a more orthodox conservative from the Midwest. Christie’s already nationally famous, if only for his battles with his weight (tamed last year by bariatric surgery) and his penchant for dressing down reporters (and occasionally voters) with words like “idiot.” And a CNN/ORC International poll released Friday declared Christie the early front-runner in the Republican race.

Christie with a filter But who is Scott Walker? At a breakfast with reporters in Washington last month — one of the obligatory stops for any politician thinking about running for president — the taciturn, understated Walker joked that he’s just like Christie but “with a Midwestern filter.”

“I’m willing to speak out, but I’m not going to call you an idiot,” he said. Walker, 46, was elected governor of Wisconsin in 2010 and, when confronting a budget deficit, made an audacious decision: Instead of raising taxes or cutting state services, he went to war with public employee unions over their contracts. The new governor initially proposed to eliminate collective bargaining, but he bowed to advisers who urged him to focus instead on cutting employees’ generous benefits, which exceeded what most privatesector workers enjoyed. The ensuing battles included a virtual occupation of the state Capitol by protesters, the flight of 14 Democratic state senators across the state line to Illinois in a failed attempt to prevent a vote and a 2012 recall election that Walker won by a convincing margin. Along the way, he also cut taxes, turned the state’s budget deficit into a surplus — and became a hero to fiscal conservatives across the country. Now, Walker says, he’d like to bring the lessons of his experience in Wisconsin to Washington, even if only in advising his party’s next presidential nominee, who he thinks (surprise!) should be a governor. His message is that rugged fiscal conservatism can win support from voters in the center, as long as it’s consistent, unwavering and focused on increasing economic opportunity for all. As evidence, he points to polls that show that 11 percent of Wisconsin

voters supported both him and Obama last year. “We need to do more than simply say no,” he writes in his book. “The way to win the center is to champion bold, positive reforms that make people’s lives better.” That means focusing on the economy and jobs and the size of government, not on the arid federal budget issues that have captured Congress (“debt limits are not relevant to people’s lives”) or even the social issues that have dominated Republican primary races in years past. “I’m pro-life,” Walker said. “I don’t apologize for that. But I don’t focus on it; I don’t obsess with it.”

Capturing the center Above all, capturing the center means reaching out to minorities and low-income people, he says, and avoiding the trap Romney fell into of dismissing the bottom 47 percent as unreachable for Republicans. The challenge none of the potential candidates has met is to show how they’d do it. For all the critiques Walker and Christie have been willing to sling at Washington, they’ve been shy on specific remedies. And Republicans in Congress, including Wisconsin Rep. Paul D. Ryan and Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas and Rand Paul of Kentucky, aren’t likely to concede that a governor would make a better president. But at this early stage, the momentum in the GOP race belongs to governors. — Doyle McManus is a columnist for The Los Angeles Times. His email address is doyle.mcmanus@

When my husband Ray and I bought the brand new little duplex we owned as a rental for 13 years, we thought our elderly mothers might one day want to live there when maintaining their own homes became too difficult for them. In short order, they let us know they had no intention of ever leaving their homes. We took great pride in that duplex and kept it in pristine condition, even building a shed to accommodate the renters’ wish for more storage. For the first ten years, we had the world’s best renters (not even one bounced check). Ray, however, may disagree about the couple who — when they stopped up the toilet — called him to fix it. Twice Ray went there to plunge it. The second time, he left the plunger after educating them about its use. I always thoroughly checked renters’ references. That worked well until I rented to a young woman whose references were sterling; her employer thought highly of her and her credit rating and rental records were excellent. A couple of months after renting to her, we drove by the duplex and saw that the windows in her unit were boarded over. When no one answered our knock at that unit, we checked next door and the renter showed us a bullet hole in his adjoining wall. At that point, I called the police and was told there was “an incident” at the duplex the previous night. When I requested the officer who had investigated

YOUR TURN the incident to meet me there, he did so. Upon his arrival, I told him that our property had clearly been destroyed and asked him to enter the problem unit with me. He said curtly, “That’s what you can expect when you rent to gang bangers.” “Are you saying we rented to gang bangers?” I asked in astonishment. “That’s what I am saying,” he said. I pointed to the inground termite bait traps and asked, “Do you really think that landlords who would go to that expense to protect their property would knowingly rent to gang bangers?” He somewhat grudgingly entered the unit Goff with me and I was stunned to see that someone had been overhauling motorcycles on the living room carpet. A Post-it note covered the bullet hole in the wall. The windows were broken and the steel entry door had been battered, pushing the wall off the sill plate. In the bathroom, the ceiling fan hung from its wires. I asked a second police officer, who belatedly joined us, if the police had done that during a search. He said he didn’t think so, but climbed on the toilet lid and tried to fix the fan. You have undoubtedly guessed that the young woman I rented the unit to

never moved in, but was fronting for someone I would never have considered as a renter. What surprised us is that neither police nor the renter next door notified us of the destruction to our property. According to the police officer, there was no requirement for them to do so. If that is still the case, I hope that city commissioners, during their consideration of expanded rental inspections, make it mandatory that landlords be notified of destruction to their property when police are called to the scene of suspected criminal activity. Although we had insurance, it cost us a great deal of time, money and worry to evict a tenant to whom we did not rent our property. And the tenant next door? When he left, owing us several months’ rent, we learned that — in spite of our no pets policy — he had a cat who used a corner of the living room carpet for a litter box. While we remain grateful to the many tenants who took care of our property as if it were their own (one horticulturist improved on our landscaping), we are even more grateful that we sold the duplex and no longer own property in the city. There are two sides to the renter/ landlord story. Commissioners would do well to remember that as they deliberate expanding inspections. As for Ray and me, we have adopted a new rule: Neither a renter nor a landlord be. — Marsha Goff is a longtime Lawrence resident and a former landlord.

RECRUITING: Juco offensive lineman commits to KU. 3B AT THE BUZZER Shabazz Napier (13) hit a last-second game-winner to help Connecticut defeat Florida on Monday. Hoops roundup on page 4B




LAWRENCE JOURNAL-WORLD OTuesday, December 3, 2013





Soucie helps KU not miss a beat Nearly everybody returned from last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Kansas University volleyball team that was so good the school served as NCAA Tournament host for the opening rounds. Consequently, the Jayhawks entered the season with their confidence riding high. Still, one question hung in the air like a 50-50 ball above the net: How were they going to replace the long, lean star middle blocker, first name Tayler, who came to KU from an area high school? It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take long to find an answer. They replaced her with a long, lean, star middle blocker, first name Tayler, who came to KU from an area high school. Tayler Tolefree from Lawrence High graduated from KU and true freshman Tayler Soucie, from Osawatomie High, ensured a seamless transition. And the Jayhawks are the host school Friday and Saturday in Allen Fieldhouse in the opening rounds of the NCAA Tournament. Soucie Soucie played so well she was named to the Big 12â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s All-Freshman team. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought it would be kind of a cool to replace a Tayler with a Tayler,â&#x20AC;? Soucie said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I look up to Tayler Tolefree a lot, so trying to be anything like her is amazing for me. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very religious and very calm and very humble.â&#x20AC;? And she was a very talented volleyball player and a great student. So is Soucie, a 4.0 student in high school. As for the less common spelling she shares with her

From underdogs to big dogs, Jayhawks still aim higher By Matt Tait

Dream crush. Those two words have been the unofficial slogan for the encore version of the most successful team in Kansas University volleyball history. The 23-7 Jayhawks, led by seven seniors, have taken the court each night this season trying to crush their opponentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; dreams, but now, after earning the right to host firstand second-round NCAA Tournament matches Friday and Saturday at Allen Fieldhouse for the second year in a row, the realization of their own dreams seems closer than ever. Senior libero Bri Riley, a 5-foot-6 fireball from Naperville, Ill., who shattered the KU digs record and is fast approaching sixth place on the all-time Big 12 list, remembers the beginning of this teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s journey like it was yesterday. It was her sophomore season, and KU coach Ray Bechard had a message to deliver. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We lost so many awful games that year,â&#x20AC;? Riley recalled. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And I just remember coming to practice one day,

COACH, SETTER WIN TOP BIG 12 AWARDS One day after celebrating the news that they were making a return trip to the NCAA Tournament â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and hosting again, no less â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Kansas Universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s volleyball team was showered with All-Big 12 honors from the conference office. Head coach Ray Bechard earned coach-of-the-year honors for the second season in a row, and senior setter Erin McNorton, a former and Coach B told us, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Hey, we got an RPI of 156,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; and we were all like, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Yeah, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so awesome!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; We were celebrating it. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so much different now. Back then we celebrated being in the hundreds, and now weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not happy even with being in the teens.â&#x20AC;? KU, which finished second behind Texas in the Big 12 standings, closed the season with an RPI ranking of 13 and will play host to Wichita State â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the team that ended Kansasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; season in 2012 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; at 6:30 p.m. Friday in Allen Fieldhouse. Getting to this point always

was the goal. But there were plenty of ups and downs along the way that made for a wild ride. It began with a couple of early losses, including an upset at the hands of Central Arkansas in the season opener. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be honest,â&#x20AC;? Riley said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We kind of came into this year thinking we were a pretty big deal, and we had those (early losses), and it was like, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Holy cow.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll never forget one of the younger girls came in after those and said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Guys, we gotta get out of this funk,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; and I was like, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Whoa, whoa,

whoa, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only the first week, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not in a funk, we just have to figure out how to play together and bring our heads down a little.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Eventually they did, but the team limped out of the gate with a 4-3 record and suffered losses to Arkansas, Creighton and Texas along the way. A midseason victory at Wisconsin seemed to get the whole thing turned around. KU trailed two sets to none in Madison, Wis., and was on the brink of falling to .500 but rallied to top the Badgers in five sets. That was the second victory in a string of 10 consecutive wins, and with each one the team felt its mojo returning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was kind of like, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Wow, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still here from last year,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? senior setter Erin McNorton said of the win over Wisconsin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At the beginning of the year, I think we felt a lot of pressure for last year to carry over, and then we just kind of let it go and started playing more carefree and got on a roll.â&#x20AC;? Added Riley: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Those were the best losses. They were like wins for us.â&#x20AC;? Please see VOLLEYBALL, page 3B

Freshman Embiid earns Big 12 weekly honor By Matt Tait

Nick Krug/Journal-World Photo

KANSASâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; JOEL EMBIID DELIVERS A JAM against UTEP on Saturday in Paradise Island, Bahamas.

Evidently, outdoing Nick Collison means something to more than just fans and followers of Kansas basketball. Last weekend, in helping the Kansas University menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball team to a 2-1 record and third-place finish at the Battle 4 Atlantis tournament in the Bahamas, freshman Joel Embiid

recorded seven blocks in a victory over UTEP. Embiidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rejections in that third-place game set a KU freshman record, passing Collison, who blocked six shots in a victory over Nebraska in 2000. For that effort, along with a week that included Embiid averaging 10 points, six rebounds and three blocks per game, the freshman from Cameroon earned Big 12 newcomer-of-the-week honors.

Embiid became the second Jayhawk this season to earn the honor, joining freshman Andrew Wiggins, who received the award on Nov. 18. Embiid blocked 10 shots in the three games and shot 63.2 percent from the floor and 71.4 percent from the freethrow line. Embiid, who is averaging 9.1 points per game, ranks third in the Big 12 in blocks and ninth in rebounds.

Jayhawks fall to No. 6 KUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s semifinal loss to Villanova in the Battle 4 Atlantis tournament dropped the Jayhawks from second to sixth in the latest Associated Press poll, released Monday. Unbeaten Michigan State (7-0) held on to the top spot while No. 2 Arizona (7-0), No. 3 Kentucky (7-1), No. 4 Syracuse (7-0) and No. 5 Please see KU HOOPS, page 3B

WEDNESDAY â&#x20AC;˘ Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball vs. Arkansas, 7 p.m.

Netsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Pierce out 2-4 weeks due to break NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Paul Pierce will be out two to four weeks because of a broken bone in his right hand, the biggest loss yet for the injury-plagued Brooklyn Nets. Pierce has been diagnosed with a non-displaced fracture of the third metacarpal of his right (shooting) hand, the team said Monday. He was hurt Friday in the first half of a loss at Houston.

Nationals trade for Fister NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; On a night usually dominated by news of players let loose, the Washington Nationals and Oakland Athletics filled pitching needs with trades. Washington obtained righthander Doug Fister from Detroit for infielder Steve Lombardozzi and left-handers Robbie Ray and Ian Krol on Monday. Oakland acquired closer Jim Johnson from Baltimore for infielder Jemile Weeks and a player to be named. Fister was 14-9 with a 3.67 ERA last season for the AL Central champions, who last month traded slugging first baseman Prince Fielder to Texas for second baseman Ian Kinsler. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It gives us some flexibility for some other things we want to do,â&#x20AC;? Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski said, insisting the trade wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t made to free money for a long-term deal for AL Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer, who can leave after next season. Fister joins a talented Nationals rotation that already includes Stephen Strasburg, Jordan Zimmermann and Gio Gonzalez. Oakland, which also closed in on a $22 million, two-year contract with left-hander Scott Kazmir, is revamping after losing to the Tigers in the AL division series. The 30-year-old Johnson led the majors with 51 saves in 2012 and tied for the big-league lead last season with 50. Meanwhile, 43 players became free agents at midnight EST when their teams failed to offer 2014 contracts. Clubs often use the so-called tender deadline as leverage to force agreements with players they wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go to arbitration with. Among the players let loose were Toronto catcher J.P. Arencibia, Boston right-hander Andrew Bailey and outfielder Ryan Kalish, Mets right-hander Jeremy Hefner and Kansas City infielder Chris Getz. With an excess of catching after reaching an agreement to sign Brian McCann, the New York Yankees traded Chris Stewart to Pittsburgh for a player to be named, and Stewart agreed to a $1 million, one-year deal with the Pirates. The Yankees also finalized a $5 million, two-year contract with shortstop Brendan Ryan, who became their starter in September when Derek Jeter went back on the disabled list. Kazmir was closing in on a deal with Oakland. The move is pending a physical, a person said, speaking of anonymity because the team hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t finalized the contract.

Pierce has struggled badly in his first season in Brooklyn, but the disappointing Nets can hardly afford another injury. They just got back AllStar center Brook Lopez but have still been playing without starting point guard Deron Williams and key reserves Andrei Kirilenko and Jason Terry. Pierce is on pace for the worst season of his 16-year career. His

average of 12.4 points and .368 shooting percentage would easily be the lowest ever for the No. 2 career scorer in Boston Celtics history. The Celtics dealt Pierce and Kevin Garnett to the Nets in a summer blockbuster that hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worked out nearly the way the Nets hoped. They are 5-12, barely ahead of the New York Knicks for last place in the Atlantic Division.

Joe Johnson is the only starter on a roster worth more than $180 million in salaries and luxury taxes who has appeared in every game. Pierce will miss the first matchup against the Knicks on Thursday. Next week, he was scheduled to face the Celtics for the first time Tuesday and former coach Doc Rivers, now with the Clippers, two nights later.


53#FOOTBALLHIRES3ARKISIANFROM7ASHINGTON LOS ANGELES â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Steve Sarkisian was named the head coach at Southern California on Monday, leaving Washington to return to the Trojansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; storied football program for another run at national titles. Two days after USCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s regular season ended with a home loss to UCLA, Trojans athletic director Pat Haden replaced interim coach Ed Orgeron with yet another assistant coach from Pete Carrollâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s championship-winning era at the school. The 39-year-old Sarkisian is a Los Angelesarea native who went 34-29 in five seasons at Washington, rebuilding a decimated program into a bowl contender. He is the permanent replacement for Lane Kiffin, his former cooffensive coordinator at USC under Carroll. Sarkisian will be introduced at a news conference today. In a statement released by USC, the coach thanked the Huskies for his first head-coaching opportunity. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am extremely excited to be coming home to USC and for the opportunity that USC presents to win championships,â&#x20AC;? Sarkisian said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait to Sarkisian get started.â&#x20AC;? Kiffin was fired in late September and replaced by Orgeron, who didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get the permanent job from Haden despite going 6-2. Crosstown rival UCLA trounced USC 35-14 on Saturday in what turned out to be the Trojansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; final game under Orgeron, who resigned Monday after failing to get the head job. Haden didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t immediately announce who will coach the Trojans in their bowl game later this month, but it could be Sarkisian, who immediately left Washington. He also could bring a handful of Huskies assistants with him to USC.


Grobe retiring from Wake WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Wake Forest coach Jim Grobe is resigning after 13 seasons at the school. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just really feel right now, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably good for the program to have some new energy, some new direction,â&#x20AC;? Grobe said Monday during a news conference. The 61-year-old Grobe has a career record of 110-115-1 in a combined 19 years at Wake Forest and Ohio. He was 77-82 with the Demon Deacons and shares the program record for coaching victories with D.C. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Peaheadâ&#x20AC;? Walker. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a sad day for Wake Forest football,â&#x20AC;? athletic director Ron Wellman said. The unquestioned highlight of Grobeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s career came in 2006. He was named the AP national coach of the year after leading Wake Forest to its first Atlantic Coast Conference championship since 1970, claiming a school-record 11 victories and earning a berth in the Orange Bowl.

statement that Nebraska supports the sportsmanship policy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In that regard, we were disappointed with Coach Peliniâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s actions this past Friday regarding game officials,â&#x20AC;? Eichorst said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We immediately recognized and addressed the situation with Coach Pelini and the Big Ten Conference. In addition, Coach Pelini acknowledged and accepted responsibility for the inappropriateness of his actions and issued a public apology in advance of this reprimand.â&#x20AC;?

Broncosâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Fox returns to work ENGLEWOOD, COLO. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Denver Broncos coach John Fox returned to work Monday, four weeks after open-heart surgery, his newfound energy matching his renowned enthusiasm. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel tremendous. As my surgeon said, I had a valve that was the size of a pinhead, and now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the size of a 50-cent piece,â&#x20AC;? Fox said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Obviously, the doctors feel good about me getting back to work. I actually would have preferred to be back sooner, but there was a pretty hard deadline of four weeks post-surgery, and I honored that and here I am.â&#x20AC;? Truth is, Fox has been telecommuting for weeks. As soon as he was released from the hospital after having his aortic valve repaired, a surgery he had hoped to put off until after the Super Bowl, Fox set up a sort of command center at his offseason home in Charlotte, N.C., some 200 yards from the spot on the golf course where he fell ill on Nov. 2 during the Broncosâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; bye. Not only was he in daily contact with defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio, who guided the Broncos (10-2) to three wins in four games during in his absence, but Fox was also in constant communication with his captains, including quarterback Peyton Manning, over the toughest stretch of Denverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s season.

Juco 0-lineman commits to KU Keegan


By Matt Tait

Just a day after offensive-line coach Tim Grunhard officially resigned his post, Kansas University coach Charlie Weis and the KU football program picked up an oral commitment from Georgia Military offensive lineman Keyon Haughton. Haughton, who confirmed his commitment to Jon Kirby of JayhawkSlant. com, becomes the third offensive lineman in the Class of 2014 to commit to the Jayhawks. He joins high school prospects Jacob Bragg, a three-star player from Nacogdoches


Although the 10-match winning streak tied for the third longest in school history, it did not mark the beginning of smooth sailing entirely. In late October, the Jayhawks dropped a home match to rival Iowa State and walked out of the gym feeling like they let one get away. A couple of weeks later, in Ames, Iowa, KU avenged the loss by winning at ISU for the first time since 2004. And that victory paved the way for KU to finish alone in


Ohio State (6-0) all jumped ahead of the Jayhawks, who went 2-1 in the Bahamas and stand at 6-1 overall. Next up, KU will play at Colorado on Saturday before traveling to Gaines-

Khadre Lane

(Texas) High, who ranks as one of the top centers in the country, and Apa Visinia, a two-star player from nearby Grandview (Mo.) High. The 6-foot-2, 300-pound Haughton was in town last weekend for his official visit. He attended the Kansas State Haughton game and told Kirby in an update last weekend that he liked Kansas and was planning on making his final decision follow-

ing Georgia Militaryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s appearance in the juco national championship game. However, an earlymorning visit from Weis and running-backs coach Reggie Mitchell on Monday impressed Haughton so much that he committed on the spot and later told Kirby he was thrilled with his decision. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The visit there went good,â&#x20AC;? said Haughton, who was hosted by Georgia Military graduate Keon Stowers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I liked the camaraderie with all of the players and how they stand by each other. Kansas has good, loyal fans. I liked the coaches on the

team. I liked the school a lot.â&#x20AC;? Haughton chose Kansas over offers from Florida A&M, Louisiana Lafayette, South Alabama, Southern Miss and Troy. Several other schools were starting to show greater interest in recent weeks because Haughton figures to be a mid-year transfer and likely will report to campus in January. Haughtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s commitment pushes KUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s total of committed players in the current class to 10, and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s room for at least that many more. KUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coaching staff will be on the road recruiting until Dec. 14.

second place in the Big 12 for the first time in school history. It also served as proof that it would take a lot more than a home loss to the Cyclones to break down this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jayhawks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last year, we were definitely on a high, and everything was new â&#x20AC;&#x201D; winning and all that,â&#x20AC;? senior middle hitter Caroline Jarmoc said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And this year is just a different mindset. Sometimes when you get on those streaks, you kind of expect to win, and I think that a loss can be a really good reality check.â&#x20AC;? The Jayhawks closed the season by winning four of five matches and had a solid enough rĂŠsumĂŠ

to impress the selection committee despite losing at Oklahoma in the season finale. KU played 14 matches against 10 NCAA Tournament teams and went 7-7. The teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stats are as impressive as the path they took to reach this point. KU ranks in the top-25 in the NCAA in kills (14.48, 13th), assists (13.56, 14th) and hitting percentage (.263, 24th). And the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2.65 blocks per set rank as the 38th-best mark in the country. Although many of the Jayhawks remember just about every kill, set and momentum swing from the past three months, the whole idea that they are

the women responsible for changing the culture of Kansas volleyball is still a little overwhelming. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was in the car with Erin the other day, and I was like, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;This is gonna sound weird, but, Erin, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just us.

predecessor, Soucie said her mother told her she found it in â&#x20AC;&#x153;the baby book.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;She said â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;O-Râ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is for boys, and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;E-Râ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is for girls,â&#x20AC;? Soucie said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what she said. I like it. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s different. Except itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the same as Tayler Tolefree.â&#x20AC;? Soucie was 4A state champion in both hurdle events, the 300-meter and 100-meter, and placed second in the triple jump. Her brother Brendan, a senior, is an 800-meter man on KUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s track and field team. Tayler arrived at KU on the slender side and she said coach Ray Bechard has urged her to pack on some muscle. Soucie shared with pride that she already has put on 10 pounds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;During high school I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t lift a lot,â&#x20AC;? Soucie said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I tried to bulk up a little bit, but it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really do that much, especially running track, I lost a lot of it just running.â&#x20AC;? Even without much bulk, Soucie is an extremely explosive hitter, and like most players in KUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s volleyball program, she figures to stay on a steady improvement curve. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s impressive what has been going on with KU volleyball the past couple of years, and it would be nice to see big crowds turn out for the matches. Volleyballâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an exciting sport to watch live. So many athletic plays keep the energy level high on the court and in the stands. And volleyball players genuinely appreciate the support. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re heading to the matches and leave from Osawatomie, leave early because half the town just might burn a trail to Allen Fieldhouse to support one of its own.

CONNECTICUT’S SHABAZZ NAPIER, LEFT, AND RYAN BOATRIGHT, RIGHT, CELEBRATE after Napier hit the game-winning basket as time expired in UConn’s 65-64 victory over Florida on Monday in Storrs, Conn.

Iowa State hammers Auburn The Associated Press

Top 25 Men No. 12 Connecticut 65, No. 15 Florida 64 STORRS, CONN. — Shabazz Napier hit a jumper from the free-throw line as time expired to keep Connecticut undefeated with a victory over Florida on Monday night. Napier, limping on a left ankle he hurt during a four-point play with 33 seconds left, escaped a trap around 30 feet from the basket and got off a wild shot that missed but was tipped blindly back by DeAndre Daniels. Napier grabbed the ball and let go a left-handed jumper that went through as the horn sounded and set off a deafening cheer from the sellout crowd of 10,167 at Gampel Pavilion. Napier finished with 26 points on 9-of-15 shooting including making five of eight from three-point range. The Huskies (8-0) and Florida (6-2), which had a five-game winning streak snapped, battled down the stretch exchanging the lead six times in the final 6 minutes. Daniels had 14 points for Connecticut, which was outrebounded 34-26, but was able to make up a size difference with its strong guard play on the perimeter. This was Connecticut’s first game this season against a ranked opponent. Florida’s previous loss was in its only game against a ranked team, Wisconsin.

West Virginia 96, Loyola (Md.) 47 MORGANTOWN, W.VA. — Remi Dibo scored a career-high 19 points, and four of his teammates chipped in with double figures as West Virginia ripped Loyola (Md.). Dibo, a junior forward from Casper College and Montreull, France, canned six of eight baskets (five of seven from three-point range) as the Mountaineers (6-2) showed their highest margin (49 points) over an opponent this season. Dylon Cormier, the nation’s second-leading scorer with 28.4 points per game coming in, was the only Greyhound in double figures with 11. Dibo, a reserve who played 23 minutes, received able backup from teammates Terry Henderson (16), also a reserve, Eron Harris (14), Kevin Noreen (13) and Nathan Adrian (11). Adrian, a freshman, tied his career best.

Chiefs try to regroup after three-game skid KANSAS CITY, MO. (AP) — The line of demarcation might as well be the Kansas City Chiefs’ bye week. In the nine weeks prior to taking some time off, the Chiefs rolled to a 9-0 record, an unimaginable turnaround from a 2-14 finish a year ago. The defense was holding opponents to just 13.3 points per game, and the offense was playing nearly mistake-free football. Everything has changed in the last three weeks. After a pair of losses to the Broncos sandwiched around a heartbreaking defeat to the Chargers, the Chiefs not only have watched the AFC West lead slip away, they’ve also become the first team in NFL to win its first nine games and then lose three in a row. It’s safe to say it is gutcheck time for the suddenly stumbling Chiefs. “I told the team this isn’t college football. This isn’t the end of the season,” coach Andy Reid said. “Now it’s important that we get ourselves back and ready to go, and finish the season like we’re capable of doing, and our guys, coaches and players, will do that.” That’s the kind of confidence that the Chiefs exuded prior to their bye week. It’s the kind of confidence that’s been lacking of late. Part of the reason for the abrupt turnaround in fortunes has been the schedule, which went from one of the easiest in the NFL to one of the most difficult. The Chiefs’ first nine games were against teams that have a combined record of 41-67, while the Broncos and Chargers have a combined record of 25-11. That stretch earlier in the season included four straight games against last-place teams, and six straight against teams third or fourth in their respective divisions. Only the Cowboys (7-5) and Eagles (7-5) have winning records. Kansas City has swapped out the Bills, which were quarterbacked by Jeff Tuel, for the Broncos, who are led by Peyton Manning. The Texans and quarterback Case Keenum have given way to the Chargers and Philip Rivers, who is having arguably the finest year of his career. “They’ve been coming out with game plans and they’re making plays when it counts,” Chiefs safety Kendrick Lewis said. “When the game is on the line, they’re making it count.” That also has been true. Six of those first nine games were decided by 10 points or fewer, and the Chiefs won all of them. The last three have also been decided by 10 points or fewer, and they’ve lost all of them. First came a 27-17 defeat in Denver that ruined the Chiefs’ perfect season, and then came a length-ofthe-field drive by Rivers in the final minute to give San Diego a 41-38 victory in a game that Kansas City thought it had won after a late touchdown of its own. On Sunday, the Broncos scored 28 straight points spanning halftime to seize control, and then held on when Alex Smith’s pass on fourth down into the end zone with 1:46 left fell incomplete. “We just have to play ball,” Chiefs safety Eric Berry said. “Nobody can

LB Houston likely to sit again KANSAS CITY, MO. (AP) — Chiefs coach Andy Reid did not sound optimistic that he’ll have leading pass rusher Justin Houston back for Sunday’s game against the Washington Redskins. Houston dislocated his right elbow two weeks ago against San Diego and missed Sunday’s 35-28 loss to Denver, a game in which the Chiefs failed to sack quarterback Peyton Manning. “We’ll just see how he does,” Reid said Monday. “I don’t know if (playing Sunday) is real or not, but that’s his mindset. We’ll have to see how he does. He’s in a day-to-day situation. He’s made some strides but I think that’d be quite a feat if he were able to make it.” Left tackle Branden Albert hyperextended his left knee against the Broncos, while tight end Anthony Fasano sustained a concussion. Reid did not say with any certainty whether either of them will be available against the Redskins. The Chiefs were forced to use Eric Fisher, their No. 1 overall draft pick, when Albert left the game. Fisher had been dealing with a shoulder injury that caused him to miss the Chargers game, and he started Sunday’s game on the bench while Donald Stephenson got the nod at right tackle. Reid said the decision to start Stephenson was not only because of Fisher’s lingering injury, but also because Stephenson had performed well the previous week. Fasano, who also tweaked his knee in the game, left with a concussion after his head slammed into the turf while he was attempting to catch a pass from Alex Smith in the second half. Fasano appeared woozy as he walked to the sideline and did not return, and Reid said that he was undergoing the typical concussion protocol on Monday morning. “I’ve got to see how he is here over the next couple days. You see all different kinds of these things,” Reid said. “I’m not here to rate him. I’m not a doctor. But just going off the symptoms he presented to us, he

have their head down. It was a tough game and they happen when you play against a good football team. We just have to go in with a sense of urgency and get some things done.” They might want to start with reassessing their defense. A team that was once on pace to set an NFL record for sacks in a season with 35 through the first seven games has gotten to the quarterback just twice in the last five games. That lack of pressure has exposed a secondary that has been torched by Manning and Rivers the past few weeks. The Chiefs allowed an average of 208.3 pass yards and 326.9 total yards during their nine-game win streak, and the result was 13.3 points per game. They’re allowing an aver-

Houston, who dislocated his elbow in that game, did not play Sunday against Denver and might not play Sunday against Washington. was feeling good today, so we’ll see.” The Chiefs have been thing at tight end, a position that figures prominently in Reid’s offense, for most of the season. Tony Moeaki went down with a season-ending shoulder injury during training camp, and Fasano missed four games earlier this season with an ankle injury. Sean McGrath, who was claimed off waivers from Seattle, has proven to be a useful backup, but the Chiefs don’t have much after that. Reid said he would huddle with general manager John Dorsey to discuss options in the event that Fasano cannot play against Washington. He did say that a pair of practice squad tight ends could be promoted. One of them, Demetrius Harris, was an undrafted free agent who played basketball at UW-Milwaukee but hadn’t played football since high school. The other tight end, Dominique Jones, spent time with Indianapolis last season after playing collegiately at Division II Shepherd. “That’s an option,” Reid said, “either one.”

age of 371 pass yards and 484.3 total yards during their skid, and 34.3 points per game. “You know, earlier in the year we were coming out the other end of it,” Smith said. “We just have to continue to fight. I think this team has that kind of character.” For all its recent ills, Kansas City can still clinch a playoff berth Sunday with a win over downtrodden Washington and either a Miami loss at Pittsburgh or a Baltimore loss to Minnesota. “We still have everything we want in front of us,” Smith said. “It’s no time to point fingers or do anything like that. Just continue to do what we’ve been doing.” Or more accurately, what they were doing the first nine weeks.

SEATTLE (AP) — The rest of the NFC better get ready to visit the Pacific Northwest in January. After Monday night’s rout, the road through the NFC playoffs is almost certain to go through Seattle. Russell Wilson threw for 310 yards and three touchdowns, and the Seattle Seahawks became the first team to clinch a spot in the NFC playoffs with a 34-7 victory over the New Orleans Saints on Monday night. More important than just clinching a spot in the postseason, the Seahawks (11-1) moved two games ahead on the rest of the NFC in the race for homefield advantage and hold the tiebreakers over New Orleans (9-3) and Carolina (9-3), the two closest pursuers. Wilson was outstanding, picking apart the Saints’ defense. He threw touchdown passes of 2 yards to Zach Miller and 4 yards to Doug Baldwin in the first half as Seattle built a 27-7 lead. Wilson added a pinball 8-yard TD pass to Derrick Coleman in the third quarter.

BAYLOR FOOTBALL COACH ART BRILES, LEFT, AND OKLAHOMA STATE COACH MIKE GUNDY TALK before the start of their meeting Nov. 23 in Stillwater, Okla. Their teams are tied â&#x20AC;&#x201D; with Texas â&#x20AC;&#x201D; atop the Big 12. Baylor will face UT, and Oklahoma State will meet Oklahoma on Saturday in games that will determine the champion.

Final twinbills to settle championship The Associated Press

The Big 12 will have its own championship Saturday, even without a title game. Both remaining regular-season games in the conferenceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s round-robin schedule have championship implications, providing for quite a closing doubleheader. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whoever made the schedule out is looking pretty smart right now,â&#x20AC;? Baylor coach Art Briles said Monday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how they did it, but they hit on this one.â&#x20AC;? Sixth-ranked Oklahoma State (10-1, 7-1, Big 12) can clinch the leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Big 12 BCS berth with a win at home over No. 18 Oklahoma (9-2, 6-2). The Bedlam game should wrap up about the same time that No. 9 Baylor (10-1, 7-1) kicks off its regular-season finale at home against No. 23 Texas (8-3, 7-1). If Oklahoma State loses, the Bears and Longhorns suddenly are playing for the outright conference title and a trip to the Fiesta Bowl. Texas quarterback Case McCoy said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be rooting for Oklahoma, though â&#x20AC;&#x153;it makes me sick to my stomach to think about.â&#x20AC;? Oklahoma State has won seven in a row, including convincing victories over Baylor and Texas their last two games. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really another game for us,â&#x20AC;? Cowboys coach Mike Gundy said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been in what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve called tournament play for the last eight weeks.â&#x20AC;? The Cowboys have made quite a comeback since that still-surprising 30-21 loss at West Virginia (4-8, 2-7) in their Big 12 opener nearly three months ago. Their only Big 12 title came two years ago, and they clinched that with a

44-10 win over Oklahoma on the final Saturday. That was the first season the league went to a roundrobin schedule after dropping from 12 to 10 teams and losing its championship game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot going on, our players have been in this situation,â&#x20AC;?

Texas was in a similar situation going into the 2001 Big 12 championship game against Colorado, needing a win for a national championship shot after other teams lost earlier that day to create that possibility. But the Longhorns lost 39-37. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We did make the guys aware in 2001 before the Colorado game that things had worked out so if we beat Colorado we would be playing Miami for the national championship, and then we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t play well,â&#x20AC;? Texas coach Mack Brown said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Probably tried too hard, they wanted to play in the national championship so badly.â&#x20AC;? Brown anticipates a dif-


     ! !   !







with the earlier Big 12 game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think you ignore it the best you can,â&#x20AC;? Brown said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We told (players), letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not talk about the Big 12 championship after today. ... Whatever happens will be good for us if we take care of our business.â&#x20AC;? Baylor is trying to win its first Big 12 title when playing the final game after 64 seasons in Floyd Casey Stadium before moving to a new on-campus stadium next year. Asked if it would be difficult to ignore what is going on Saturday in Stillwater, Okla., before his game, Briles chuckled while insisting that it wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I guess just because it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really have any bearing on the outcome of our game,â&#x20AC;? Briles said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our deal is to go out and play our best and try to scratch out a victory against Texas. We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t control what happens prior to that.â&#x20AC;? Should Oklahoma State win Saturday, the winner between Baylor and Texas would still share the Big 12 title and likely be the leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s representative in the Cotton Bowl. A oneloss Bears team could still get an at-large BCS berth. Oklahoma has won a league-high eight Big 12 titles, sharing last year with Kansas State. The Sooners now could keep their archrival from winning the conference championship, though coach Bob Stoops said that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t play into their thinking this week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That maybe is the lowest form of motivation that a competitor may have, so no, that has nothing to do with how we approach the game whatsoever,â&#x20AC;? Stoops said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a very, very low form of motivation.â&#x20AC;? They have more than enough with Bedlam.

Adult children’s squabbles create rift in family Annie’s Mailbox

Marcy Sugar and Kathy Mitchell

frontations with everyone in the family. We recently found out that John molested Alice when she was 5 years old. Alice is cordial when she is forced to be around him, but John has never admitted or apologized for his actions. My older kids are not terribly reliable. We named Jane executor of our estate because Susan is a heavy pot smoker and quick-tempered, and John cannot be trusted. It breaks my heart, but that’s the

ABC reaches to plug holes in schedule It’s beginning to look a lot like ... summer? ABC is somewhat unseasonably unfurling new episodes of “What Would You Do?” (9 p.m.). This ABC News production puts strangers in ethical quandaries captured by candid cameras. It has been airing for some time now, an all-purpose programming caulk to plug up holes in the network’s schedule. But in the past, ABC seemed to take it out of wraps around the time “Wipeout” began airing its warm-weather edition. The gaping hole in the network’s slate was left by the poor ratings and quick disappearance of “Lucky 7,” a drama about lottery winners from the New York City borough of Queens. Gee, I wonder why that fizzled. ABC used the vacant space to air repeats of “Scandal” and a “news” special about political scandals, and now “What Would You Do?” hosted by John Quinones. ABC is hardly alone here. The problem getting viewers to watch any network other than CBS at this hour has been around for a while. Remember when NBC simply gave up on the time slot and programmed Jay Leno five times a week? That would have prevented them from airing “The Blacklist” on Mondays at that time, NBC’s most certifiable nonfootball, non-”Voice” success of the year.

Companies underprice each other to retain business or stiff the competition on “Shipping Wars” (A&E), entering its fifth season. First up: hauling chickens (9 p.m.), transporting real insects as well as Volkswagen Bugs (9:30 p.m.).

way it is. Susan hasn’t spoken to me in months. I now believe she and John have always been jealous of my younger daughters. Even though my husband raised them all, Susan has said hurtful things about him. She also says I “never wanted” her. This is completely untrue. I pine for Susan every day, but I refuse to phone her because of the awful things she says to me. My husband says we only have a few years left and we should enjoy them. What do you think? — Heartbroken Dear Heartbroken: It is not unusual for children, even grown ones, to harbor resentments and jealousies against younger siblings, particularly when those siblings are from a different marriage.

your older kids could have benefited from family counseling at the time, there’s not much you can do about that now. We suggest you send Susan a letter or an email, simply saying that you love her and always will, that you are sorry for the rift, and that you hope someday her anger will pass.
