Commission delays action on inspection program

Rock Chalk Park progressing

Work continues on the rock chalk Park sPorts comPlex near Sixth Street and the South Lawrence Trafficway. The trackand-field stadium, far left, is the most complete of the structures so far, with a projected opening set for spring 2014. The concrete pad for the city’s eight-gym recreation center, top center, also has been poured. The entire center is expected to open in summer 2014. The concrete pads along the right edge of the photo are parking lots to serve the entire complex. In the center of the site are a soccer field and a softball stadium for Kansas University.

Heating bills may go up this season Price of natural gas could rise as much as 10 percent; Weather service predicts average winter temperatures

By Chad Lawhorn

Heating bills may take a slightly larger bite out of the wallets of homeowners this winter, according to the latest projections on natural gas prices. Leaders with Black Hills Energy, the city’s largest natural gas company, projected Tuesday that the price of natural gas may rise by as much as 10 percent com-

pared with last year’s prices. But Black Hills officials said the increase should amount to only a few dollars a month for the average residential user, and that newly discovered reserves of natural gas are helping keep prices at levels much lower than several years ago. “We don’t see a lot of fac-

tors that are going to cause gas prices to really spike,” said Lon Meyer, Black Hills Energy’s interim general manager. Company officials said at a luncheon for community leaders Tuesday that they are projecting natural gas prices this winter to be as high as $3.82 per MMBtu.

One MMBtu is equal to 1 million BTUs (British Thermal Units). That’s up from an average of $3.45 per MMBtu. The average residential Please see HEATING, page 2A l City opens compressed

Approval of a proposed program to license and inspect virtually every rental unit in Lawrence was delayed for at least two more weeks after a surge of last-minute opposition emerged Tuesday at City Hall. After a spirited discussion, city commissioners at their weekly meeting ultimately unanimously agreed to delay any action on the proposal for two weeks. The commission during the last two days received approximately 40 letters in opposition to the ordinance, many of them citing concerns that the city inspection process would be an unfair invasion of privacy of renters. “I don’t think we have Farmer enough data to mitigate the fears that people have about this program at this point,” Commissioner Jeremy Farmer said. Farmer made an unexpected proposal to create a pilot project for the rental licensing and inspection program. He proposed that the city solicit approximately 25 landlords to volunteer for the registration and inspection program during the first quarter of 2014. The volunteer landlords could provide the city feedback on how the system worked. But Farmer’s idea never won the support of a majority of the commission, and ultimately commissioners ended more than three hours of discussion on the ordinance by tabling it for two weeks and asking staff members to come back with more information. The new information may include a new list of proposed violations that could be levied against a rental unit. Mayor Mike Dever Please see RENTAl, page 5A

City officials perplexed by stories of ‘boarding house’ dispute By Chad Lawhorn

The story of Debbie Nall and her Lawrence home for those who are down on their luck is exploding on the Internet and in the world of television news. And it is leaving Lawrence City Hall officials covered in a whole lot of Internet ugly. There’s the headline on the website of a Kansas City television station that says “Lawrence

targets woman who opens home to downtrodden.” Then there is the headline on a Fox News national site that declares: “City threatens woman housing the needy with fines.” A few other sites label Lawrence leaders as “infuriating” or that city officials have told Nall “to stop helping people.” The reaction from Lawrence City Hall: Huh? Despite the story making it all the way onto national news

— Scott McCullough, city director of planning and development services — it ran on the Fox and Friends Weekend edition — Lawrence city officials said there is one problem with the narrative: The

city currently isn’t trying to make Nall do anything. Scott McCullough, the city director of planning and development services, said the city hasn’t had an active case against Nall and her property at 1501 Rhode Island St. since 2011. “We’re still trying to find out what the impetus of the stories are,” McCullough said on Monday. Comments from city officials weren’t part of the original sto-

City opens compressed natural gas fueling station By Chad Lawhorn

Donna Kaye Hamblin

Lawrence city officials are taking another step in evaluating whether large fleets of city vehicles — like trash trucks and transit buses — ought to be fueled by compressed natural gas. City leaders on Tuesday opened a new $100,000 compressed natural gas fueling station at the city’s maintenance facility at 12th Street and Haskell Avenue. The station will be used by four compressed natural gas vehicles the city is using as part of a pilot project. “We’re looking to see how this fuel source can have an impact on our bottom line,” Mayor Mike Dever said. A grant from the Kansas City Regional Clean Cities program paid for about half of the fueling station. The grant also paid for the $50,000 in costs to up-

grade a city trash truck to run on compressed natural gas. The city began running its first compressed natural gas vehicle, a standard pickup truck, about two years ago. Steve Stewart, the city’s fleet manager, said the CNG pickup truck thus far has been performing well. “So far, it has been excellent,” Stewart said. “So far, it hasn’t given us any problems.” Stewart said fuel mileage has been comparable to traditional gasolinepowered equipment. Fuel prices have been very favorable. A gallon equivalent of compressed natural gas was selling for $1.49 on Tuesday, compared with $3.87 for diesel fuel. Dever said he hopes the city will gather about 18 months worth of maintenance and fuel data on the compressed natural gas vehicles in the city’s

fleet and then determine whether it makes sense to add CNG vehicles on a larger scale. In addition to the trash truck and the pickup truck, the city soon will add two flatbed waterhauling trucks that will run on compressed natural gas. Officials with Black Hills Energy, the city’s largest natural gas company, said a decision by the city or another large fleet operator to convert to compressed natural gas would make it more likely that a private company could open a quickfueling CNG station that is open to the public. “I think Lawrence would be a perfect place for a station,” said Lon Meyer, the interim general manager for Black Hills Energy. “It is a vibrant, youthful, progressive town where a lot of people would see the benefits.”

the National Weather Service’s Climate Prediction Center show Kansas is likely to have average winter temperatures in the early part of the winter season, but is more likely to have above-average temperatures for the latter half of the winter season and early spring. Black Hills officials said that although natural gas is becoming a more common fuel source for electricity generation and for powering vehicles, the company’s economists aren’t seeing a return to the days when natural gas was selling at prices more than four times its current

level. In August of 2008, with green natural gas prices hovered 7 days, M-S per month $16.75 $17.75 around $13 per MMbtu, 3 days, F,S,S $10.50 $11.50 but since that time has Sun Only $6.50 $7.50 traded in range of about $2 to $4 per MMbtu as Didn’t receive your paper?

boarding house. McCullough said the city looked into the complaints and found a large amount of evidence that Nall was using the property as a boarding house — although it is unclear whether Nall ever charged people a fee to stay in the house. In interviews with other media, Nall has said the home was open free of charge to people such as domestic violence victims, service members needing a temporary home and displaced families. Regardless, McCullough said the frequent nature of the boarders violated the city’s zoning code, particularly the part

that says no more than three unrelated people can live in a single-family zoned property. Unrelated guests are allowed but after a 30-day stay, they generally are considered an occupant. But McCullough said the accusations that the city threatened Nall with large fines are not accurate. “I saw one that said $30,000 in fines,” McCullough said. The city’s ordinances do allow for a judge to issue a fine ranging from $10 to $500 per day for over-occupancy, but that first would require the city to file formal charges against Nall in Lawrence Municipal Court. McCullough checked the city’s records on Monday and said Nall’s case never reached that stage. Mc-

Cullough said Nall voluntarily agreed to begin complying with the city’s zoning code. “For us, it ended in 2011,” McCullough said. McCullough said Nall at the time did ask for her property to be grandfathered in so it wouldn’t have to comply with the city’s zoning code. But McCullough said occupancy limits on the house have been in place for decades, and thus it wasn’t the type of case that qualified for an exemption. The property, however, may qualify to be rezoned for use as a bed and breakfast or a temporary shelter, McCullough said. He said he told Nall of those options, but she didn’t pursue the rezoning. Nall, however, appears aware of the six-bedroom

home’s potential as a bed and breakfast. Nall recently has put the home up for sale by owner. In a marketing flyer attached to the for-sale sign, Nall writes that the home “historically” was zoned for a bed and breakfast use, and writes that it would make a “lovely bed and breakfast” in the future. In the marketing material, Nall said she is selling the home because her husband died more than five years ago and she is looking to move into a more senior citizen-friendly home. She doesn’t mention a dispute with the city, although some of the media stories mention her move is related to the threat of “big fines” from the city. McCullough said his department hasn’t talked with Nall since the 2011

matter. “I have placed a call to her to see if I can answer any questions,” McCullough said. “I think we were all a bit surprised by the stories because we hadn’t had any recent communication with her or received any complaints about her property.” City officials at their Tuesday evening meeting reiterated that they had taken no action against Nall since 2011, and Commissioners Jeremy Farmer and Bob Schumm both made a point to say that they did not think the original television report on KCTV 5 accurately portrayed the city’s actions in the case.

Looking for political answers In the United States and some other countries, education is largely a matter of local and regional policy. This year, for the first time, OECD reported scores for some countries at the state and regional level. Massachusetts, Connecticut and Florida were the only U.S. states to participate in that part of the 2012 test. Florida is often cited as a model for conservative school reform initiatives such as high-stakes testing, school choice policies and an A-F grading system for schools, many of which were begun under former Gov.

the top tier of the rankings. PISA is administered by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, a group of 65 industrialized nations. It is intended to measure how well national education systems are teaching the knowledge and skills needed to be successful in a global marketplace, and it is often cited as a barometer for a nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to remain economically competitive.


L AWRENCE J OURNAL -W ORLD Meanwhile, Massachusetts and Connecticut are examples of states that spend considerably more per pupil than the national average. Kansas ranks slightly below the national average. Looking at the top performing countries, OECD officials said, the most important factors were a strong focus on teacher quality, including investments in professional development, and allowing local autonomy for school officials to determine their own policies and priorities. But there is little evidence to support most of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;reformâ&#x20AC;? policies commonly advanced by either the political right or left in the United States: market-based competition and school choice models, which is popular among conservatives; or increased spending to reduce class sizes, as many liberals propose.

Lessons for Lawrence and Kansas In years past, the state of Kansas included funding for professional development for teachers, but Lawrence school Superintendent Rick Doll noted

that was eliminated several years ago. Still, he said it remains a high priority in the Lawrence school district where schools have a shortened schedule each Wednesday to allow teachers time for additional training. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s both for professional development and collaboration, which is extremely important,â&#x20AC;? Doll said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The day when a single teacher closes her door and teaches her or his 22 kids is over. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s much more of a team effort now.

Meanwhile, Doll said, Lawrence schools still put a priority on smaller class sizes, especially in buildings with large numbers of economically disadvantaged students. But he said he agrees there is a limit to how much benefit can be gained through small class sizes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Getting too small doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really provide you with that many more advantages,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everybody thinks the lower you go, the better it is, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really not true. If you go too high â&#x20AC;&#x201D; I would suggest if you get up in the 3540 range, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too high.â&#x20AC;?

Regents endorse national plan to simplify distance education By Scott Rothschild

TOPEKA â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Kansas higher education officials on Tuesday expressed support for a national plan that they said would make it easier to enroll online students from other states. Currently, institutions must navigate different requirements in each state to get authorization to offer distance education. These efforts are often costly and time-consuming.


and City Commissioner Mike Amyx both argued that the proposed list up for approval on Tuesday was too broad. Both said the violations should be focused more on violations that clearly were a threat to a renterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life and safety. Commissioners Bob Schumm and Terry Riordan said they were ready to approve the ordinance largely as proposed on Tuesday, but said they were open to negotiations on the list of violations. Amyx and Dever are scheduled to sit down with city staff members during the next two weeks to craft a new list of violations that will be presented to the full commission at its Dec. 17 meeting. The current list of violations include a range of issues such as nonworking smoke alarms, faulty furnaces and hot water heaters, trash in yards and improperly fitting doors. Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s delay comes after commissioners already have approved funding for the licensing and inspection program in the 2014 budget. But commissioners have been struggling for months on the specific wording of the ordinance that would govern the program. In recent days, commissioners were hit with a surge of opposition from both landlords and tenants. On Tuesday, the Kansas chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union also notified the city that it was opening an investigation into legal concerns with the proposed pro-


embarked on a series of changes, starting in early 2012, to address problems highlighted by the audit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;OITS was taking action to resolve almost every one of the issues raised prior to the beginning of the audit,â&#x20AC;? Schlinsog told members of the Legislative Post-Audit Committee. Several members of the committee, however, said the agency needs to be brought under the legislative appropriations process for oversight. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We should have some accountability of how these dollars are spent,â&#x20AC;? said state Rep. Tom Burroughs, D-Kansas City, Kan. The committee ordered that a presentation of the audit be made to the legislative budget committees when the 2014 legislative session starts in January. The audit found that since fiscal year 2009, OITS and its predecessor agency, the Division of Information Systems and Communication, made approximately $6 million in accounting adjustments to avoid reporting profits. State auditors said that appears to violate federal regulations and estimated that the state will owe the

But institutions in states that join the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement, or SARA, would be able to operate in any of the states that are part of the plan. The institutions would be charged an annual fee based on their size. During a telephone conference call meeting, the Academic Affairs Standing Committee of the Kansas Board of Regents voiced support of SARA. And several college

officials, including Sara Thomas Rosen, senior vice provost for academic affairs at Kansas University, also said they would like to see Kansas join. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Certain states are difficult to get into,â&#x20AC;? Rosen said. Under SARA, only degree-granting institutions that have national accreditation and meet the U.S. Department of Educationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s minimum level of financial responsibility can join. Several states, including Nebraska, are expect-

The program at a glance The cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposed program essentially would cover every rental unit the city. Here are some details:

Every apartment unit in the city would be required to register with the city each year. But city officials only would inspect a portion of units each year.

Under normal circumstances, landlords would have 10 percent of their total units in the city â&#x20AC;&#x201D; up to a maximum of 15 units â&#x20AC;&#x201D; inspected once every three years.

Landlords could

gram. Specifically, the ACLUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attorney said he had concerns about whether the ordinance met the constitutional provisions protecting people from unreasonable government searches. The bulk of the letters city officials received in the last two days appear to be part of an organized opposition group. Many of them were the same letter but signed by different tenants of apartment complexes around town. At Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meeting, the crowd was evenly split among supporters and opponents of the proposed program. The program has received significant support from several neighborhood associations who believe the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stock of rental housing can be improved. In recent days, concerns from tenants have mounted after questions have been raised about how invasive the city inspec-

federal government $1.2 million. Under federal law, state agencies can use federal funds to pay for information technology services, but OITS is prohibited from generating profits from those services. Auditors said DISC and OITS have also improperly used losses from prior years to offset current year profits; which likely will cost the state $1.4 million. The audit also found that some agencies were paying less than the costs of services while others were paying more. The governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office was not charged for IT services for the past nine years, and the Legislature received services at a substantial discount, the audit said. These costs were then passed on to other agencies in the form of higher rates for unrelated services. In response, Schlinsog said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;While we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t deny that in the past there have been transfers of overages from some rates to make up for deficits in other rates, we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe it was done to avoid reporting profits in those rates, but rather to solve the more immediate problem of having to balance the budget of DISC and OITS.â&#x20AC;? In addition, OITS has previously had to borrow money and pay penalties to address short-term cash-flow problems, the audit said.

qualify for an incentive that would allow their properties to go six years in-between inspections. Properties would qualify for the incentive if their properties previously passed a city inspection with no major violations.

The city plans to hire five-full time inspectors and an administrative staff position for the program. The approximately $400,000 in program costs would be paid for through registration and inspection fees paid by landlords. tions would be. City staff members have argued the city has successfully run a similar but more limited rental inspection program for the last 11 years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not doing this to get into peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s houses,â&#x20AC;? Riordan said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing this to protect people who need protection.â&#x20AC;? Dever, though, said he had serious concerns about whether the city has a good understanding of the amount of time and money it will take to run the inspection program.

ed to join this year. For Kansas to join would require legislation. Regent Tim Emert, of Independence, expressed support for SARA but cautioned that joining a national effort would raise alarms with many in the Legislature. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is a whole group

of people over there that will be opposed to us getting involved in a national consortium.â&#x20AC;? He mentioned opposition to Common Core school standards for reading and math, which are going into effect in Kansas and dozens of other states. Regent Robba Moran

of Hays said that under SARA any institution can decide whether it wants to be part of the pact. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If an institution doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to do it, it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to,â&#x20AC;? Moran said. Supporters of SARA say it will provide consumer protections and greater access to online courses.

Frequent-flyerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s case doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t move justices

Judge: Detroit can use bankruptcy to cut pensions DETROIT (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A federal judge ruled Tuesday that Detroit can use bankruptcy to cut employee pensions and relieve itself of other crushing debts, handing a defeat to the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unions and retirees. Judge Steven Rhodes, who wondered aloud why the bankruptcy had not happened years ago, said pensions can be altered just like any contract because the Michigan Constitution does not offer bulletproof protection for employee benefits. But he signaled a desire for a measured approach and warned city officials that they must be prepared to defend any deep reductions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This once proud and prosperous city canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pay its debts. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s insolvent,â&#x20AC;? Rhodes said in formally granting Detroit the largest public bankruptcy in U.S. history. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At the same time, it also has an opportunity for a fresh start.â&#x20AC;? The ruling came more than four months after Detroit filed for Chapter 9

WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Supreme Court indicated Tuesday it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t offer much help to frequent fliers who want to sue when airlines revoke their miles or their memberships. The justices heard the case of a Minnesota rabbi who was stripped of his top-level â&#x20AC;&#x153;platinum eliteâ&#x20AC;? status in Northwestâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s WorldPerks program because the airline said he complained too much. Rabbi S. Binyomin Ginsberg said Northwest, since absorbed by Delta Air Lines Inc., did not act in good faith when it cut him off. The airline says the federal deregulation of the airline industry in 1978 rules out most lawsuits like the one filed by Ginsberg. Most justices signaled they think that ruling for Ginsberg could give rise to state-by-state rules that the deregulation law was intended to prevent. Justice Stephen Breyer said Ginsbergâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s complaint also could apply

Rhodes agreed with unions and pension funds that the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s emergency manager, Kevyn Orr, had not negotiated in good faith in the weeks ahead of the July filing, a key condition

under federal law. But he said the number of creditors â&#x20AC;&#x201D; more than 100,000 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and a wide array of competing interests probably made that â&#x20AC;&#x153;impossible.â&#x20AC;? The decision set the stage for officials to con-

front $18 billion in debt with a plan that is sure to include touchy negotiations over the pensions of about 23,000 retirees and 9,000 workers. Orr says pension funds are short by $3.5 billion.

to airline ticket prices, which are supposed to be set through competition among airlines. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It sounds to me like I go in to, you know, get a ticket, my reasonable expectation is theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not going to charge me what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to charge, you know. I mean, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unbelievable,â&#x20AC;? Breyer said. Under Ginsbergâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s view of the case, Breyer said he could sue over the prices. Ginsberg said in court papers that he and his wife flew almost exclusively on Northwest, logging roughly 75 flights a year to travel across the U.S. and abroad. Northwest cut him off in 2008, shortly after Northwest and Delta agreed to merge. Ginsberg said the move was a cost-cutting measure designed to get rid of high-mileage customers. Northwest says Ginsberg complained 24 times in a 7-month period, including nine instances of luggage that turned up late on airport baggage carousels.

Health subsidies may carry fraud risk

TV.Z &HH B V Ă&#x201D; `+Ve B V Ä&#x153;Ć&#x192;Š Ĺ?Ć&#x192;Ä&#x153;Ĺ&#x2014;

WASHINGTON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Government subsidies to help Americans buy insurance under the health care overhaul may be vulnerable to fraud, a Treasury Department watchdog warned Tuesday in the latest indication that troubles are far from over for President Barack Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s signature legislation. The rollout of the law has been hurt by canceled policies and problems with the federal website used by people to enroll in health plans, causing political headaches for the White House and for Democrats in Congress. The new problems concern subsidies that are available to lowand medium-income people who buy insurance through state-based exchanges that opened in October. Those subsidies are administered by the Internal Revenue Service in the form of tax credits, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where the trouble arises. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The IRSâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; existing fraud detection system may not be capable of identifying (Affordable Care Act) refund fraud or schemes prior to the issuance of tax return refunds,â&#x20AC;? said the report by J. Russell George, the Treasury inspector general for tax administration.

Union: N.Y. engineer â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;noddedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; at controls YONKERS, N.Y. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; An engineer whose speeding commuter train ran off the rails along a curve, killing four people, nodded at the controls just before the wreck, and by the time he caught himself it was too late, a union official said Tuesday. William Rockefeller â&#x20AC;&#x153;basically nodded,â&#x20AC;? said Anthony Bottalico, leader of the rail employees union, relating what he said the engineer told him. Rockefellerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lawyer did not return calls. During a late-afternoon news conference, federal investigators said they were still talking to Rockefeller, and they wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t comment on his level of alertness around the time of the Sunday morning wreck in the Bronx. Separately, however, two law enforcement officials said the engineer told police at the scene that his mind was wandering before he realized the train was in trouble and by then it was too late to do anything about it. One of the officials said Rockefeller described himself as being â&#x20AC;&#x153;in a dazeâ&#x20AC;? before the wreck.

Man survives 3 days at bottom of Atlantic LAGOS, NIGERIA (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Entombed at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean in an upended tugboat for three days, Harrison Odjegba Okene begged God for a miracle. The Nigerian cook survived by breathing an ever-dwindling supply of oxygen in an air pocket. A video of Okeneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rescue in May that was posted on the Internet six months later, has gone viral this week. To this day, Okene believes his rescue after 72 hours underwater at a depth of about 100 feet, is a sign of divine deliverance. The other 11 seamen aboard the Jascon 4 died. Divers sent to the scene were looking only for bodies, according to Tony Walker, project manager for the Dutch company DCN Diving, who were called to the scene because they were working on a neighboring oil field

BRIEFLY Morsi investigated for links to jihadists CAIRO â&#x20AC;&#x201D; During his year as president, Egyptâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mohammed Morsi cultivated ties with Islamic radicals, making them a key support for his rule by pardoning dozens of jailed militants, restraining the military from an all-out offensive against jihadis in Sinai and giving their hard-line sheiks a platform to spread their rhetoric. Now with Morsi ousted and imprisoned, investigators are looking into possibly putting him on trial for links to jihadis, accusing him and his Muslim Brotherhood of being behind a wave of violence by Sinai-based militants in retaliation for the July 3 military coup that removed the Islamists from power, military and security officials say. The investigation marks a new track of possible prosecution against Morsi, who is already on trial on charges of inciting murder over a December attack by Islamists on protesters.

Scientists: Arafat was not poisoned PARIS â&#x20AC;&#x201D; French scientists looking into the death of Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat have dismissed poisoning by radioactive polonium, his widow announced Tuesday. The results contradict earlier findings by a Swiss lab, and mean itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still unclear how Arafat died nine years ago. Teams of scientists from three countries were appointed to determine whether polonium played a role in his death in a French military hospital in 2004. Palestinians have long suspected Israel of poisoning him, which Israel denies. After a 2012 report that traces of radioactive polonium were found on Arafatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clothing, Arafatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s widow filed a legal complaint in France seeking an investigation into whether he was murdered. As part of that investigation, French investigators had Arafatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s remains exhumed and ordered genetic, toxicology, medical, anatomical and radiation tests on them. Suha Arafat and her lawyers were notified Tuesday of the results, less than a month after the Swiss team issued their report.

75 miles away. The divers had already pulled up four bodies. So when a hand appeared on the screen Walker was monitoring in the rescue boat, showing what the diver saw, everybody assumed it Okene was another corpse. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The diver acknowledged that he had seen the hand and then, when he went to grab the hand, the hand grabbed him!â&#x20AC;? Walker said in a telephone interview Tuesday. Walker said Okene couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have lasted much longer: â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was incredibly lucky he was in an air pocket but he would have had a limited time (before) ... he wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be able to breathe anymore.â&#x20AC;?

Boeing plans If a last-minute pitch for a new Boeing plant in Wichita falls short, state officials should revisit their strategy to reduce the possibility of similar disappointments in the future.


ccording to recent news reports, Boeing executives are meeting with senior officials from five to 15 states trying to land a new Boeing commercial aircraft manufacturing plant. The plant would produce the Boeing 777X passenger airliner and would create thousands of jobs. Boeing officials have set a Dec. 10 deadline to accept bids from the states seeking this prized manufacturing facility. Last week, Kansas was not among the states that were in the running for the giant economic development plum. However, Gov. Sam Brownback confirmed on Monday that Kansas was “back in it” and would “take a shot” at attracting the new plant. According to the news reports, as well as some top Kansas officials, Boeing started shopping for a new home for its Washington state manufacturing facility after its machinists union rejected a proposed contract that would have led to the 777X being produced at that plant. It seems Wichita would be an ideal location for the new plant given the current facilities in Wichita, which probably could be renovated at considerably less cost than building a new plant elsewhere. Wichita also offers a well-trained work force with experience in the aviation business. However, the union that rejected the Boeing contract proposal in Washington reportedly is the same group that caused Boeing officials to close their operation in Wichita. Boeing officials are said to have told Kansas leaders that they would not consider a Wichita site because of the union situation. If these explanations are accurate, it seems that state and local leaders, along with Boeing and union officials, could get creative in coming up with a workable plan in which all parties would be winners. Wichita has a rich history as a hub for manufacturing numerous types and sizes of airplanes. The work force is well trained and they do excellent work. Kansas and Wichita should work hard to advance their reputation as a superior location to build airplanes and as a center of talented and highly productive workers. Kansas seems to be coming late to this party, but the effort is worthwhile considering the benefits this plant could bring to Kansas. If the state fails to attract this project, it should cause Kansas officials to reassess their efforts and try to get their acts together to minimize the chances for similar embarrassing shutouts in the future.

WASHINGTON — As al-Qaida grows more powerful in Syria — seeking “complete control over the liberated areas,” according to a new Syrian rebel intelligence report — moderate opposition leaders are voicing new interest in a political settlement of the grinding civil war. But a peace agreement may just be a prelude to a new war against the terrorists. This search for a political transition has also drawn together a disparate group of nations, including Iran, Saudi Arabia, Russia and the United States. These nations met quietly in Geneva on Nov. 21 to discuss ways to provide humanitarian relief for thousands of civilians who face the threat of starvation this winter. Negotiations have focused on providing supplies to civilians trapped in three areas: the old city of Homs, in central Syria; the town of Darayya, about six miles southwest of Damascus; and the town of Moadamiyeh, about eight miles southwest of the capital. A relief “working group” has been coordinated by Valerie Amos, the United Nations’ emergency relief coordinator. The raw materials for peace negotiations are there. But as always in the tragic Syrian conflict, the forces of sectarian conflict and political inertia seem stronger. The two-year failure to find an exit is leading to what observers predict could be a humanitarian disaster this winter, with the loss of tens

The raw materials for peace negotiations are there. But as always in the tragic Syrian conflict, the forces of sectarian conflict and political inertia seem stronger.” of thousands of lives. Gen. Salim Idriss, the commander of the moderate Free Syrian Army, said in a telephone interview Monday that he’s prepared to join the socalled “Geneva 2” peace negotiations scheduled for Jan. 21, if the Syrian regime will agree to confidence-building measures such as a humanitarian relief corridor to besieged areas. Idriss didn’t demand as a precondition that President Bashar al-Assad resign before negotiations begin. Instead, he said, Assad’s departure should come “at the end of negotiations.” This position was echoed by Monzer Akbik, a spokesman for the Syrian opposition council, the moderate rebels’ political arm. Idriss stressed the threat posed by the al-Qaida af-

filiate known as the “Islamic State of Iraq and Syria,” or ISIS. He said the group was “very dangerous for the future of Syria” and that after Assad’s departure, the Free Syrian Army would be ready to join the regular Syrian army in fighting them. A new intelligence report prepared for the State Department by Idriss’ colleagues paints a frightening picture of the growth of the ISIS. According to this document, the group now includes about 5,500 foreign fighters, who “form the main backbone of ISIS in its sensitive operations.” These foreign jihadists are recruited from their home countries by a network headed by a fighter known as Abu Ahmad al-Iraqi. Once they reach Syria, “the fighters are constantly fitted with explosive vests and threaten all who dare to confront them,” according to the intelligence report. The “most dangerous and barbaric” of these al-Qaida fighters are about 250 Chechens, based in the suburbs of Aleppo and coordinated by an operative known as Abu Omar al-Chechani, the report says. Joining this core group of foreign fighters are about 2,000 young ideological recruits, drawn mostly from northern Syria. Another 15,000 fighters support the group “out of fear or greed.” These include fighters from 14 Sunni tribes in the Raqqah area and eight tribes from Deir al-Zour, both in the

northeast. “ISIS employs the policy of kidnapping in the areas in which it is deployed,” warns the intelligence report. The group’s prisons hold more than 35 foreign journalists, 60 Syrian political activists and more than 100 Free Syrian Army fighters. It also controls key areas along the TurkishSyrian border, where it lies in wait for victims. Idriss said the Free Syrian Army is trying to fight a twofront war, battling al-Qaida fighters at 24 locations over the past six months, even as it tries to keep fighting Assad’s army. The CIA is said to be training about 200 fighters for Idriss each month, though the commander wouldn’t acknowledge this support. Asked about U.S. tactical advice to stage more “hit and run” guerrilla operations, Idriss said he had advised his recruits “to fight in small groups and hit targets and move — and not try to control the land.” The two tracks — fighting and negotiating — sound good in principle. But the rebels haven’t been strong enough to make either approach work — and the U.S. hasn’t been ready to provide the necessary additional firepower. There’s more support now for a political settlement at a “Geneva 2” conference, but it’s clear that even if Assad leaves, a second Syrian war against al-Qaida is ahead. — David Ignatius is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.

OLD HOME TOWN U.S. Rep. Jim Slattery, D-Kan., met with reporters for a short YEARS time on the steps AGO of Hall-Kimbrell’s IN 1988 corporate offices in Lawrence to share his thoughts on social service agencies. Volunteer efforts such as the United Way must play an increasing role in the funding of social services, Slattery said, because the federal government wasn’t able to. With the nation “struggling with a major deficit” and having to make drastic cuts in social service budgets in recent years, “I don’t think that the federal government’s going to have a lot of money to spend for these programs,” Slattery said.


“Sorry, no gas” signs were beginning to appear at some Lawrence YEARS service stations AGO this week. Most IN 1973 stations continued to have adequate supplies and were dealing with gas shortages by adjusting their hours of operation, but several sites had posted the apologetic signs until their later allotments came in, causing motorists to have to drive to a different station for fuel.

“If everyone demanded peace instead of another television set, then there’d be peace.” — John Lennon “Black Friday” was a metaphor beyond the merchants’ bottom line. Headlines on last Friday’s Drudge Report reflect a culture that is being trampled by the greed and me-only attitude of a growing number of us:

“Mall mayhem...

Suspected shoplifter shot after dragging cop through Kohl’s parking lot...

Brawls. .. Man stabbed over parking spot...

Shopper kicked out of Wal-mart for filming fight...

Man shot walking home with big screen...

Shoppers trampled in race for $49 tablet...

Salvation Army kettles stolen...

Woman pulls stun gun in argument over Wal-mart shopping cart.” Once such stories seemed isolated, even bizarre. In the era of flash mobs and a growing entitlement mentality fueled by politicians and “income inequality” alarmists, these far-too-frequent instances now seem to be symptomatic of a decaying culture. Like those with symptoms of illness who refuse to see a doctor, ignoring this pestilence that is destroying our foundations ensures it will get worse. These incidents are the result of a nation that has ceased to impose — yes, impose — the old values that served previous generations well.

If things satisfied, wouldn’t Americans be the most satisfied people on Earth?” The dark night is rising, and it isn’t a Batman movie. The latest, but probably not the last, expression of what I mean is what used to be called assault and battery, but now is labeled the “knockout game” in which mostly young men see if they can randomly knock another person unconscious with a single punch. People and nations must be ruled by something, or there is anarchy. Either it is God, or secular laws that control our lower nature. Today, we are out of control as we pursue happiness through prosperity in the false hope money and things will satisfy. The problem with prosperity is that one is never satisfied. As the ancient writer said, “Whoever loves money never has money enough; whoever loves wealth is never satisfied with his income.” (Ecclesiastes 5:10). Who today is satisfied with their income and circumstances?

In my neighborhood there are old houses built during World War II, and at that time they sold for well under $20,000. One of these houses is currently on sale for more than $1 million. Far larger and more expensive homes stand on lots where smaller and cheaper homes once stood. These new homes are called “tear-down houses.” How many regard these larger houses as steppingstones to an even-bigger next house? What is the purpose, other than ego fulfillment? The estate sale is the end of it all. If things satisfied, wouldn’t Americans be the most satisfied people on Earth? We have more stuff than any generation before ours. The overflow we deposit in rented public storage units. The stock market is up substantially, but we want it to go higher with no bursting bubble this time. Then what? What will we do with more? Will tomorrow’s more satisfy when today’s more hasn’t? Writer Jess C. Scott has said, “If money’s the god people worship, I’d rather go worship the devil instead.” Given the behavior of so many on “Black Friday” and other examples of cultural decay and national decline, many of us seem to be doing just that. Israel’s King David warned, “The wicked freely strut about when what is vile is honored among men.” (Psalm 12:8). Can’t say we haven’t been warned. — Cal Thomas is a columnist for Tribune Media Services.

From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Dec. 4, 1913: YEARS “A war on loafAGO ing on the part IN 1913 of high school boys was begun yesterday when the city police received orders to keep them out of pool halls and simultaneously the proprietors of other favorite loafing places placed the ban on the practice of high school lads cutting class to loaf in their places of business. ‘I am glad to see the co-operation the city police are giving in the matter,’ said Principal Olney today.... One reason for the boys loafing in barber shops and pool halls instead of at the Y. M. C. A., they say, is that they cannot smoke in the Y. M. C. A. building while they can do as they please elsewhere.... The proprietor of one barber shop where the ‘cutters’ have been accustomed to loaf stated last night that he had prohibited absolutely the loafing of boys in his shop, beginning yesterday. ‘I have never approved of the boys loafing in my shop, especially when I knew them to be cutting classes, and now I have determined to stop it,’ he said.”

KANSAS ANS FOOTBALL: Jayhawks bolster O-line with recent commitments. 3B ORANGE CRUSH Syracuse rolled past Indiana, 69-52, on Tuesday night. College basketball roundup on page 4B



LAWRENCE JOURNAL-WORLD Wednesday, December 4, 2013


Tom Keegan

Wiggins’ growing pains worth it Andrew Wiggins played one lousy basketball game in the Bahamas. During the three-game Battle 4 Atlantis, he was no better than Kansas University’s third-best freshman, ranking behind Joel Embiid and Frank Mason. I have two words to say about that: So what? It’s not as if he’s the first talented basketball player to experience bouts of inconsistency during the first posthigh school November of his career. The tougher the coach, Wiggins the more shocking the transition to college basketball. Bill Self is no softy. Many watching the tourney on TV noticed Self appeared to mouth the word “soft” to Wiggins at one point. Wiggins joins a long list of Self players, past and present, to hear that label sent their way. They grow tired of hearing it, realize the coach isn’t going to dumb down his standards for anyone, stop fighting him and do it his way more consistently as the season progresses. They tend to like the result of everyone doing the things that keep words such as “soft” and the gentler euphemism “casual” from flying off Self’s tongue. Nobody is exempt from getting blasted for shying from contact when crashing the boards or chasing loose balls, putting style ahead of substance when on the way to dunks, not running hard in transition in both directions every single time, things like that. For most players coming out of high school, those things aren’t second-nature until bad habits have been cleansed through daily feedback behind the closed doors of practices and the fishbowl of games. Everything Wiggins does, the good and not-so-good, is magnified because of his inflated fame and thanks to talent outbursts so loud they feed the hunger to see more, more, more! Now and forever, for crying out loud! Rare is the athlete who blends so much length and

Old, new Firebirds set to start

By Benton Smith

December is here, and for the athletes at Lawrence High, that means it is time for winter sports. Here is a look at each LHS team that begins competing this week.

By Benton Smith

Some are young, some old and some in-between. The experience level varies greatly from team to team among winter sports programs at Free State High. Here is a look at each that gets its season started this week.

Boys basketball A team that finished its previous season with a losing record rarely can start the winter with legitimate state-tournament aspirations. Then again, most that fall in that category aren’t like Free State’s boys basketball team, which returns five senior starters who all played in the opening round of the 2013 Class 6A state tourney. Guards Reshawn Caro and Keith Loneker, and forwards Cole Moreano, FREE STATE HIGH WINTER SPORTS ATHLETES INCLUDE, Khadre Lane and Blake clockwise from front left, Kyle Yoder (swimming), Scout Winslow, who lost to Blue Wiebe (girls basketball), Reshawn Caro (boys basketball) Please see FIREBIRDS, page 3B and Colton Steele (wrestling).

Boys basketball For the talent Lawrence boys basketball coach Mike Lewis has coming back this winter, there sure doesn’t seem to be any notion of accomplished players appointing themselves superior to their teammates. Few backcourts in the Sunflower League have the chance to be as dynamic as the Lions’ duo of junior guard Anthony Bonner and sophomore point guard Justin Roberts, but when Lewis examines his team’s structure he notices foremost a “we is greater than me” mentality. “A year of experience at the varsity level helps with confidence,” Lewis said of the lead guards. “Both are confident players, good leaders, competitors, and want to lead our team.” Guards John Barbee and Connor Henrichs are back in Please see LIONS, page 3B

KU women support Summitt, Alzheimer’s awareness By Matt Tait

John Young/Journal-World File Photo

KANSAS UNIVERSITY HEAD COACH BONNIE HENRICKSON pulls guard Lamaria Cole aside during a stoppage in play during the KU women’s basketball game against Oral Roberts, Nov. 10 at Allen Fieldhouse.

None of the players on the Kansas University women’s basketball roster were recruited to Tennessee by legendary Volunteers coach Pat Summitt, but at 7 tonight, when the Jayhawks host Arkansas at Allen Fieldhouse, they’ll all be playing for her. Both teams will participate in a nationwide movement known as “We Back Pat,” in which a majority of the pregame and portions of the game itself will be devoted to raising awareness for Alzheimer’s disease, which Summitt has been battling for the past few years.

KU and Arkansas both will wear orange warm-up shirts and pins that boast the “We Back Pat” slogan in support of the Pat Summitt Foundation, and KU coach Bonnie Henrickson has recorded a public service announcement that stresses the importance of early detection of Alzheimer’s Summitt disease. In addition to getting back onto the court after suffering backto-back losses to Xavier and Duke last weekend in the Virgin Islands, the Jayhawks

(4-3) are looking forward to the special evening. “She’s one of the greatest to ever coach, so it’s an honor to be able to play for her,” junior guard Natalie Knight said of Summitt. “Our heart goes out to her and anybody who’s ever played for her. We’re really happy and really excited to be able to do that.” For Henrickson, the opportunity to honor Summitt is one that’s near and dear to her heart. In 1988, when Henrickson was a graduate assistant at Western Illinois, she received what she remembered as the opportunity of a lifetime.

By next week, the people who make sure the nation has a player worthy of the Heisman trophy â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and the ESPN primetime show devoted to it â&#x20AC;&#x201D; will have had their say. And then weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll know just what the definition of integrity means when it comes to handing out the little statue that means so much. Look at the stats, the charisma of Jameis Winston and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a no brainer. The redshirt freshman has led Florida State to an undefeated season so far, a No. 1 ranking, and almost surely a berth in the BCS title game. Look at the allegations of a woman who claims the star quarterback raped her and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s another story. Look at how authorities in Tallahassee have handled it so far, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s distasteful at best. Innocent until proven guilty? A grand concept, and for that, we should be grateful we have the judicial system to give us the final say. But this isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t about a courtroom trial, or being judged by a jury of peers. This has nothing to do with the possibility Winston could face going to prison instead of the NFL. This is about voting for the Heisman. And this is about a good time to say no. No to the notion that athletes should be exalted without question. No to a football culture that the womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family members said was so pervasive that detectives warned against pressing ahead with charges. No to those who say that the only thing that matters is how many games you win, and how many alumni can brag they got tickets to the BCS title game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If this was an issue like he stole a stereo or something I might look at it differently,â&#x20AC;? said Richard Lapchick, the excellent arbiter of ethics in sports today. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But to turn a blind eye to this would be a mistake.â&#x20AC;? It would, because the Heisman is more than just an end of the season award. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a trophy that has almost achieved a mythical status, and it comes with the provision that the player not only must be very skilled but possess a certain amount of integrity. We know where Winston fits in the first requirement. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s completed two of every three passes, thrown for 35 touchdowns, and led the Seminoles to within one game of the title game in Pasadena. But no one outside of Winston and his accuser can be sure how he rates on the second. Unfortunately, the wheels of justice sometimes move slowly. That seems to be even truer in Tallahassee, where the family of the woman claims police never presented a case to prosecutors from when it was reported last December until it was reported on last month. When it became public, Winstonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attorney suggested they were looking at the wrong man. When test results confirmed DNA was found in the underwear of the accuser, the attorney changed paths and said the sex was consensual. The family hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t changed their stance once. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To be clear, the victim did not consent,â&#x20AC;? the family said in a statement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This was a rape.â&#x20AC;? Winston, as is his right, has said nothing, either to police or reporters. Is Jameis Winston the best college player in the country? Yes he is, and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good chance he will be again next year if circumstances allow. But heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not Heisman-winning material right now. At least not until a far bigger question is answered first.

FORMER KANSAS CHIEFS LINEBACKER CHRIS MARTIN, left, and his attorney, Ken McClain, talk about their lawsuit against the Chiefs during a news conference Tuesday in Independence, Mo.

Five ex-Chiefs sue team over head injuries KANSAS CITY, MO. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Five former Kansas City Chiefs players who were on the team between 1987 and 1993 filed a lawsuit Tuesday claiming the team hid and even lied about the risks of head injuries during that time period when there was no collective bargaining agreement in place in the NFL. The lawsuit was filed in Jackson County Circuit Court on behalf of former players Leonard Griffin, Chris Martin, Joe Phillips, Alexander Louis Cooper and Kevin Porter, all of whom played on defense. It seeks more than $15,000 in actual and punitive damages. All five players have opted out of a multimillion-dollar settlement announced this summer that would compensate former players for their head injuries. The Kansas City plaintiffs claim to be suffering from post-concussion syndrome and latent brain disease because of multiple concussions they sustained while playing for the Chiefs. They all claim also to be suffering from chronic traumatic encephalopathy, which can only be definitively diagnosed by examining the brain after death. Martin, a Kansas City resident who played linebacker for the Chiefs from 1988 to 1993, said at a news conference he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know that continuing to play in games after sustaining a head injury would cause permanent damage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would have liked to have the opportunity to know that going back on the field would cause me to have severe disabilities later in life,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know that. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what the lawsuit is about.â&#x20AC;? Chiefs spokesman Ted Crews and NFL spokesman Greg Aiello both declined to comment on the suit. Plaintiffsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; attorney Ken McClain called the proposed $765 million settlement between the NFL and former players insignificant and said it provides compensation only to the former players with the most severe brain injuries. None of the five plaintiffs will get monetary compensation under that deal, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to be is monitored over time, but no relief will be offered to them,â&#x20AC;? McClain said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really a very small amount of money if you do the math. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s paid out over 20 years, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $765 million total. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a little under $20 million a year the teams are contributing to these very severely injured people. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not very much money.â&#x20AC;?

The 331-pound Powe was the Chiefsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; sixth-round draft pick (199th overall) out of Ole Miss in 2011. He played in 10 games in 2011-12, recording six tackles, before he was released Sept. 1, 2013. Love, a three-year NFL veteran, played in 42 games with the Patriots and Chiefs, playing in one game for Kansas City this season.


WSU investigating violations WICHITA â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Wichita Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s athletics department says itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s investigating improper clothing and apparel benefits to baseball players. The university announced Tuesday that it has hired an Overland Park law firm that specializes in NCAA rules violations to help investigate. Wichita State says the violations came to light during the transition that followed the June 4 firing of longtime head baseball coach Gene Stephenson. He was replaced in mid-June by Arkansas assistant Todd Butler.


Nets reassign aide Frank NEW YORK â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The disappointing Brooklyn Nets have shaken up their coaching staff, reassigning top assistant Lawrence Frank to a non-bench role. Head coach Jason Kidd says Frank will not be at practices or games, and that he will be writing daily reports. He said the two had â&#x20AC;&#x153;different philosophies.â&#x20AC;? Kidd played for Frank with the Nets and hired him when he became a first-time coach in June.


Clark to lead playersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; union SAN DIEGO â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Tony Clark has become the first former big leaguer to lead the baseball playersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; union, pending a vote by the general membership. The MLBPAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s executive board voted unanimously Tuesday to appoint Clark to replace Michael Weiner, who died Nov. 22 of brain cancer.

Jayhawks add juco teammates to O-line By Matt Tait

Kansas University football coach Charlie Weis has completed the Georgia Military sweep. Not long after reporting that Keyon Haughton, a 6-foot-2, 300-pound offensive lineman from the junior college had committed to Kansas,’s Jon Kirby got in touch with Haughton’s teammate, Devon Williams, and learned that he, too, had given an oral commitment to join the Jayhawks. Like Haughton, Williams, a 6-5, 335-pound left tackle, met with Weis and running backs coach Reg-



gie Mitchell on Monday morning and basically committed on the spot. The two visited KU last weekend for the Kansas State game and Williams said they talked about playing together at Kansas on the plane ride home. According to Kirby’s report, KU captain Keon Stowers, a former Georgia Military player himself,


played a key role in landing both players. “He really helped me on the visit and we clicked right away,” Williams told Kirby. “Since he is from Georgia Military, he knew where I was coming from. He told me it would be a great place for us. I could tell he and the other players really want to win.” Despite KU transitioning from former offensive line coach Tim Grunhard to its next O-line coach — Rice’s John Reagan, sources have told the JournalWorld — Williams said he felt a lot of love from the existing KU coaches and was not worried about his future position coach. Williams, who chose

son of the Grand Forks Herald, KU wide receivers coach Rob Ianello, who also serves as the program’s recruiting coordinator, has thrown his name into the hat for the vacant head coaching job at the University of North Dakota. Ianello coached Ianello u n d e r Weis at Notre Dame and briefly became the FightIanello up for job? ing Irish’s interim head According to a recent coach after Weis was report from Wayne Nel- fired. He then spent

two seasons as the head coach at Akron (2010-11) before being relieved of his duties there and landing at Kansas. Weis said following KU’s season-ending loss to Kansas State last weekend that if he were to make other changes to his coaching staff, it would be after the December recruiting period. According to the report, UND has received 24 applications for the position and the deadline to apply is Dec. 10. Nelson also wrote that UND athletic director Brian Faison said he would like to fill the job as soon as possible.

KU women

“She’s been very good to me,” Henrickson said. “I’ve saved every note she’s ever written to me. She’s that kind of person. She sees you on the road or at a big game or after a win and she’ll take the time to drop you a note, which, I don’t know how she has the time. “I’ve certainly been impressed by her success, but I was always more impressed by how it never defined who she was

as a person. No ego and arrogance there.” There is, of course, a game associated with the Jayhawks’ We Back Pat night, and it figures to be as tough as any Kansas has encountered this season. Arkansas comes in at 8-0 and is averaging 76 points per game while holding opponents to just 41. Henrickson said her team needs to show more consistency in all aspects

than it has thus far if it hopes to hang with the Razorbacks. And senior CeCe Harper said the Jayhawks’ six-game homestand, which starts tonight and runs through the Big 12 Conference opener against West Virginia on Jan. 2, would be critical. “This is a big run that could give us momentum heading into Big 12 play,” Harper said. “This is where we figure out who we are as a team.”

(Thursday at Topeka) will also be their first. That’s where Wiebe’s toughness and scoring will help the Firebids, as will a new role for Shade. “Last year (Shade) relied on others to create for her,” Duncan said. “This year she will create for herself and others.”

The FSHS season begins today with a home quadrangular.

Haskell men win vs. Peru State

FSHS grad Caron award nominee


The Haskell Indian Nations University men’s basketball team picked up its second win of the season, 100-90, over Peru State on Tuesday at Coffin Complex. HINU (2-7) plays next at University of St. Mary on Dec. 16 in Leavenworth.

Kansas State senior forward Chantay Caron, a graduate of Free State High, was announced as a nominee for the 2014 Allstate WBCA Good Works Team. The award recognizes student-athletes’ significant contributions through volunteerism and civic service.

“I always say my claim to fame was she let me work her camp as a GA,” Henrickson said. As the years went on, the two coaches got to know each other better and Henrickson’s respect and admiration for Summitt soared with each encounter.

KU over offers from Florida A&M, South Alabama, Troy and Tulane and had interest from Auburn and Kentucky, will graduate in May. Haughton is scheduled to graduate in December and be eligible to report to campus in January. They became the fourth and fifth offensive linemen in the Class of 2014 to commit to KU and the 10th and 11th players in the class overall. Weis and the KU coaching staff will remain on the road recruiting until Dec. 14.


Valley Northwest at state, all have extensive court time with each other under coach Chuck Law and know his system. “So far, the leadership our seniors have provided has been unlike any I’ve seen at this school in quite awhile,” Law said. “They’ve led both vocally and by example with their work ethic. If your seniors are your hardest workers, it usually translates to success on the court.” FSHS, which went 1112 a year ago, and found its way late in the season, has guard Weston Hack back for his junior season. Senior Innocent Anavberokhai played last year, too. Guards Tristan Garber and Justin Narcomey and forward Keegan McKinney figure to provide the Firebirds support off the bench. A December schedule that Law expects to challenge Free State begins Thursday at Kansas City (Mo.) Central.

Entering his 12th year with the program, Duncan has been doing this long enough that putting together a fairly young team won’t be a new challenge.

“Three years ago we were in a similar situation, where starters were not even sure what to do during starting line-ups,” the coach said. “We are not that inexperienced, but we certainly will need some game-time experience to find an identity.”

Boys swimming Don’t get Lawrence boys swimming coach Kent McDonald wrong. He’s thrilled with his team’s numbers as the season begins. He is just realistic, and he knows a lot of the Lions are new to the program or aren’t year-round swimmers. So just getting started might be the toughest part of the months to come, because they have to get in shape. “It will show in the early meets,” the eighth-year coach said of the newness of it all. “Also, the new swimmers will need to learn strokes other than freestyle, and the divers are all going to need to learn new dives.” LHS does have some experience on its side. Swimmers Caleb Axlund and Tim Schraad both competed at state last

Boys swimming As much talent as coach Annette McDonald has to work with this winter, the Free State boys swimming coach knows she can’t expect the Firebirds to just jump in the water and start winning meets. “There is a learning curve that occurs over the first quarter of the season with athletes new to the team,” the 13th-year coach pointed out. “There is a lot to learn for the newcomers.” McDonald feels good about the young and talented additions in swimming and diving, but she also has trust in the team’s proven commodities: Kyle Yoder, Hunter Robinson, Jack Ziegler, Josh Terrell, Nolan Stopel, Cooper Schmiedeler and Brandon Bunting. Adding swimmers Jordan Portella, Sydney Lin, Matthew Wilkus, Evan Yoder and Zach Denny, as well as diver Chad Bourdon, should keep Free State competitive, their coach predicted.

Wrestling Sure, Mike Gillman would have preferred to see his Free State wrestlers win a few more matches and finish better than 21st at the 6A state meet last season, but he couldn’t be happier to have five grapplers with state experience back on the mat for FSHS this winter. Colton Steele, Sam Skwarlo, Maurice Jacobs, Quailan Fowler and James Wensel now all know just how difficult it is to win at the season’s final tournament, “The kids that I have in the wrestling room have been working extremely hard this year,” Gillman said, “and are motivated by goals they have set for themselves.” The FSHS coach expects his team’s seniors to motivate newcomers, including Sky Carey, who will partner up with team leader Steele at practices. The Firebirds’ season starts Saturday at Gardner-Edgerton, where they could see members of state championship programs from Iowa and Nebraska, an Oklahoma state runner-up or highly regarded Kansas program St. James Academy.

Self: Shooting not only struggle By Gary Bedore

Maybe it was the low ceiling or dim lighting in 3,900-seat Imperial Arena — the ballroom and convention center of the Atlantis resort — affecting the equilibrium of Kansas University’s basketball players. Q Or the Nike basketballs, which the Jayhawks say have a different feel than the adidas brand they normally use. Q Or the rims. QOr the players simply not shooting straight. Whatever the reason(s) ... “we couldn’t throw it in the ocean, and we were really close to the ocean,” KU coach Bill Self cracked Monday on his Hawk Talk radio show. The Jayhawks hit just 10 of 45 threes en route to beating Wake Forest and UTEP and losing to Villanova at the recent Battle 4 Atlantis Tournament in Paradise Island, Bahamas. “As bad as people want to say it puts so much pressure on you when you can’t make shots and I would agree ... (but) I think we are more deficient in other areas,” Self said. “Our ballhandling, passing, going for loose balls, ability to guard the ball isn’t where it needs to be. We could use perimeter shooting, no question about that. We also are not a real tough team yet and not a great loose ball team. “As poorly as we played against Villanova (in 63-59 semifinal loss in which the Wildcats hit nine threes to KU’s two), we get one stop and we win against a team that played lights out,” Self added. “We lost to the 14th-ranked team in the country on an awful day where we had a one-point lead, playing as poorly as we can play and don’t get a stop (on late Nova three).” Self, who stressed that “Villanova deserved to win,” was asked by a fan on his radio show if he thought about giving significant minutes to one of the bench players known for three-point shooting — Andrew White III, Conner Frankamp or Brannen Greene. White was 0-for-5 from three; Frankamp and Greene each 0-for-1 in the Bahamas. Frank Mason was the only non-starter to hit a three, knocking down two in 11 tries to go with Naadir Tharpe’s four and two apiece from Wayne Selden and Andrew Wiggins. “We thought about that a lot. No question our four best perimeter players have been Frank, Naadir, Andrew (Wiggins) and


quickness as Wiggins. Consequently, about 70 percent of what Self likes to call “50/50 balls” should be possessed by Wiggins if he goes after them with the same fervor as an average small forward. All of that makes Wiggins the perfect candidate to take advantage of Self’s coaching style, which includes a variety of ways that challenge each player to prove his mettle. It will come as a shock if Wiggins doesn’t improve a great deal over the course of the next few months, an exciting proposition considering the extent to which he already has made positive contributions. He hasn’t shot well yet (.493 overall, .333 from three), another common first-November occurrence, yet he’s still averaging 14.3 points, second on the team to Perry Ellis. He ranks third in rebounding (5.6), behind Joel Embiid and Ellis,

They’ve been the four best since start of practice for the most part. Others have had good days and things like that,” Self said. “In a perfect world, we’d play one of the other three (White, Frankamp, Greene). Whoever it is, it could change game to game, week to week, month to month (depending on) who is playing best. “You can make a case, ‘he (Self) should play him or he should play him,’ but nobody has separated himself. One guy who has more than anybody is Frank and he is trying to figure anything out, it’s so new to him. We need to play five perimeter players. We need to go to one (of three candidates). I don’t know exactly who that is yet. We’ll have to see how it plays out.” Self, who realizes shooting can be on one night and off the next, is more concerned about other areas.

first in steals and has the best plus-minus number on the team with a plus-14.8. Most of the 72 minutes Wiggins has sat have not come at garbage time. Without Wiggins on the floor, KU actually has been outscored, 138-132. As for whether he deserved the No. 1 ranking he received from Rivals. com, those rankings no longer project what player will be the best freshman. They basically skip the one year the top prospects play in college and already look to them as NBA prospects. So far, Kentucky’s Julius Randle and Duke’s Jabari Parker have been the best freshmen in the country. The best guess as to the No. 1 pick in the NBA draft? Embiid. Why not take him first? It’s way premature to label Wiggins a disappointment. One month into his one-year college career, he remains what he was in high school, an outstanding prospect. Watching him turn into an outstanding basketball player over the next few months will make for fascinating viewing.

“(Against Villanova) there were 32 loose balls, they got 22 of them — the 50/50 balls,” Self said. The thing we take most pride in, they kicked our butt. In the last game,” he added of a 67-63 win over UTEP, “think about it ... we go to bed at 3 a.m. after a heartbreaking loss. We eat postgame meal at 2 (a.m.). We’ve got to get up and regroup. It’s a little deflating. Our energy level was not good against them (Miners). If we make any shots at all, we’re up 20. The last four minutes (in which KU saw 14-point lead dip to three) were a total debacle. We were able to learn some things from that game without absorbing a loss.” KU left the Bahamas with a 6-1 overall record. “We weren’t going to run the table,” Self said of going undefeated in 201314. “If anybody thought we were going to go undefeated they really were drinking blue and red Kool-Aid,” he joked. “No

team has done it in 40 years and these freshmen are going to do it? “It’s OK to lose unless it’s the end of the season. Of course you can’t let one become two and things like that. If we get better from it, it’ll be a positive thing for us.” KU will next meet Colorado at 2:15 p.m., Central time, Saturday, at Coors Events Center in Boulder. O Alexander to miss game: KU signee Cliff Alexander, a 6-8 senior from Chicago’s Curie High, will serve a one-game suspension for being ejected from last Sunday’s game against St. Rita, the Chicago Tribune reports. He’ll miss Saturday’s game at University of Illinois-Chicago against Las Vegas Gorman High and 7-footer Steven Zimmerman. The Trib reports that Alexander and St. Rita’s Vic Law “both received technicals for taunting during Curie’s 79-76 overtime victory, and Alexander received a second technical and automatic ejection for hanging on the rim.” A player ejected from a game cannot participate in the team’s next game according to Illinois High School Association rules. O Ellis honored: KU sophomore forward Perry Ellis was named a nominee to the Allstate NABC and WBCA Good Works Teams, the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) announced Tuesday. The award, presented by the NABC and the Women’s Basketball Coaches A s s o ciation (WBCA), recognizes 201 nominees at all levels of college basketball. Ellis It honors college basketball players, “who represent the sport’s finest in the areas of leadership and charitable achievements amongst their peers. The studentathletes nominated for this honor embody the true spirit of teamwork and giving back.” From the 117 NABC men’s nominees and 84 WBCA women’s nominees submitted by sports information directors, voting panels will select two 10-member teams of five student-athletes from the NCAA Div. I level and five from Divisions II, III and the NAIA. The final roster of 20-award recipients will be unveiled in February.

A’s complete flurry of deals OAKLAND, CALIF. (AP) — Billy Beane is busy dealing in December once again. In one whirlwind stretch of less than 24 hours, the Oakland general manager pulled off a trio of trades with three different clubs and upgraded Oakland’s bullpen in the process. Beane believes his overall roster might be even better heading into 2014, with the front office determined to keep the lowbudget club a contender after consecutive AL West crowns. “In the time I’ve been here, we won the West in ’12 and Billy didn’t stand pat,” manager Bob Melvin said Tuesday. “He always looks to improve the team.” First, the A’s acquired AL saves leader Jim Johnson from Baltimore late Monday as the replacement for All-Star closer Grant Balfour. Then on Tuesday, the two-time defending division champions traded for San Diego righthanded reliever Luke Gregerson in a swap that sent outfielder Seth Smith to the Padres. That move became a viable option after outfielder Craig Gentry was acquired from Texas earlier Tuesday with top outfield prospect Michael Choice going to the division rival Rangers. Oakland also is waiting on lefty Scott Kazmir’s physical to finalize a $22 million, two-year contract. “It’s fun. We’ve always had a pretty fraternal group,” Beane said. “We had some spots we needed to fill. I think we addressed the areas we needed to and in some cases I think maybe even upgraded, particularly when you look at the bullpen with the addition of both Jim Johnson and Luke Gregerson. We all feel real good about where we are. The next step is putting it on the field.” It’s been a busy couple of days for Beane and his staff to say the least, building the 2014 team through calculated additions and subtractions via trade. That has long been Beane’s offseason approach — and

Rays acquire Hanigan, Bell in three-team trade ST. PETERSBURG, FLA. (AP) — The Tampa Bay Rays acquired catcher Ryan Hanigan from the Cincinnati Reds and reliever Heath Bell from the Arizona Diamondbacks in a three-team trade on Tuesday. The deal was announced after Hanigan agreed to a $10.75 million, three-year contract that runs through 2016 an includes a club option for 2017. Tampa Bay sent minor league pitcher Justin Choate and a player to be named to the Diamondbacks. Arizona dealt lefthander David Holmberg to Cincinnati. The 33-year-old Hanigan is expected to become Tampa Bay’s primary catcher. The trade was completed a day after free agent catcher Jose Molina was re-signed to a $4.5 million, two-year contract. Bell will be a candidate to become the Rays’ closer. Hanigan is a .262 career hitter who spent the past seven seasons with the Reds. He batted .198 with two homers and 21 RBIs in 75 games in 2013, when he spent two stints on the disabled list — one because of a strained left oblique muscle and the other a sprained left wrist. Bell, 36, has 168 career saves over 10 major league seasons with the New York Mets, San Diego,



Miami and the Diamondbacks. He led the majors with 132 saves for the Padres from 2009-11 and his 166 saves over the past five seasons are third the majors after Jonathan Papelbon’s 173 and Mariano Rivera’s 170. Bell was 5-2 with a 4.11 ERA with 15 saves in 69 appearances for the Diamondbacks last season. “It’s a fresh start,” said Bell, who’s looking forward to heading to the American League. “I do feel I can help this ballclub.” The Reds traded a catcher they no longer needed for a left-handed pitching prospect. Devin Mesoraco, their first-round draft pick in 2007, emerged as an everyday catcher last season when Hanigan was hurt. Mesoraco played in a career-high 103 games, batting .238 with nine homers and 42 RBIs. Hanigan was on the disabled list twice and batted only .198 with two homers and 21 RBIs in 75 games. Hanigan caught both of Homer Bailey’s no-hitters in the last two seasons. The 33-year-old became expendable when the Reds decided after the season that they would make Mesoraco the starter. They signed catcher Brayan Pena to a two-year deal for $2,275,000, giving them a backup for Mesoraco.

Eat Your Vegetables

Sarah Henning

Lazy and healthy curry over potatoes


donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know about you guys, but after the decadence that was the past Thanksgiving week, simple and healthy were on the top of my wish list for this weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eats. Not that I gorged on food day and night from Thursday through the weekend or anything. Though, it was tempting. That said, I did have quite a few of those pumpkin bars I wrote about last week, and my mom and I shared a good amount of dark chocolate between us. But: It was a holiday. Time with family. Regret nothing. So, Sunday night, we wanted to do a bit of damage control. A healthy meal that was easy, too. So we pulled out the crock pot and made a slow cooker curry, and rather than go for rice, we roasted some sweet potatoes and served the curry over the sweet potatoes. Unusual? Yes. Healthy? Yes. Delicious? You bet.

Slow Cooker Curry Over Sweet Potatoes 1 pound cooked shrimp, defrosted if frozen (optional) 1 yellow onion, chopped 2 cloves minced garlic 1 teaspoon roasted red chili paste 2 tablespoons coconut oil 1 tablespoon mild curry powder 1 teaspoon dried thyme 1 cup canned diced tomatoes, with juice 1 can coconut milk 1 red bell pepper, seeded and diced 6 green onions, white and green parts, thinly sliced Salt and black pepper to taste 2 sweet potatoes More coconut oil In a skillet or wok, heat coconut oil over medium heat. Add onion and stir-fry until softened. Add garlic, chili paste, curry powder and thyme and stir-fry 2 minutes. Add tomatoes, with juice, bring to a boil, stirring and scraping the pan. Transfer everything in the pan into your slow cooker. Add coconut milk and season to taste with salt and pepper. Cover and cook on high for 2 hours. Thirty minutes before itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s done cooking, add the shrimp, if using. Prepare your sweet potatoes: Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Peel your potatoes and slice them into quarter-inch rounds. Lay rounds on a parchmentcovered cookie sheet and rub coconut oil onto the exposed side of each round. Roast for 25 minutes, flipping over your rounds halfway. At the 2-hour mark for the curry, add bell pepper and green onions, and cook another 15 minutes. Serve over warm, roasted sweet potatoes. Serves: 4.

Grilled cheese makes for quick, fancy dinner By Meryl Carver-Allmond Special to the Journal-World

While I typically do a good job of mapping out our dinners each week, sometimes the plan goes awry as the holiday season picks up. With tree festivals and jingle jogs and cookies to make in the evenings, often we just want something simple but still delicious. Enter the fancy grilled cheese sandwich. A plain-Jane grilled cheese is great, of course, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not always satisfying enough for a real meal. So why limit your grilled cheese to American singles and white bread? After all, the only real qualification for a grilled cheese is that it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t include meat. That leaves a lot of room for creativity and what-do-we-have-in-thefridge ingenuity. For example, one of my favor-

ite grilled cheese sandwiches is a few slices of Brie cheese, a slather of blueberry jam and a handful of greens, like arugula or spinach. If I have some bacon to toss on â&#x20AC;&#x201D; it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t count as meat, here, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more like a condiment â&#x20AC;&#x201D; all the better. Another good one? Spread a piece of crusty bread with pesto sauce and a few slices of mozzarella. Then, squeeze the juice out of a few canned tomatoes and add those too. I like to make this one into a panini by using a second heavy pot to press down the top of the sandwich as it grills. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be afraid to raid your crisper drawer for fruit, either. Apples and cheddar cheese are a classic kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; snack, but theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re even better when the apples are sliced thinly, sandwiched between two tortillas and melted into a quesadilla.

Grilled onions and swiss. Jalapeno peppers and cream cheese. Colby with dill pickle slices. Ricotta with roasted squash and a few drops of Sriracha sauce. Barbecue sauce with Gouda and banana peppers. Pickled beets with provolone and avocado. Seriously, just open your fridge and pull out two or three things that look good â&#x20AC;&#x201D; there you go, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a gourmet grilled cheese! While you can make a grilled cheese in any pan, of course, if you have a cast iron skillet or grill top, this is the time to use it. Start by warming the pan over medium heat, then melt a pat of butter. With these more ingredientheavy grilled cheese sandwiches, I find itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easiest to build the sandwich right there on the stove. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re using any spreads or sauces, put those on the first piece of

bread. Then, put the bread faceup in your pan, layer on the innards, and top with another piece of bread. Push down gently on the top to help the sandwich stick together. When the first side is toasted and the cheese is just barely going melty â&#x20AC;&#x201D; this will take just a few minutes, depending on the bread â&#x20AC;&#x201D; carefully flip the sandwich to toast the other side. When the sandwich is finished, place it on a cutting board to slice it in half. Be sure to enjoy the gooey string of cheese as you pull the two halves apart. Then tuck-in and enjoy your quick â&#x20AC;&#x153;fancyâ&#x20AC;? dinner! â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Meryl Carver-Allmond lives in Lawrence and writes about chickens, babies, knitting, gardening, food, photography, and whatever else tickles her fancy on any given day at

Chicken Kiev-inspired drummies for dummies


onâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you hate it when a plan doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come together? Recently, I had a hankering for a certain dish I used to make in my early days of cooking, one I hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t made for several years and had all but been removed from my repertoire: chicken Kiev. There was a recipe in my first cookbook, the Better Homes and Gardens one my mother handed me as she pushed me out of the nest and said â&#x20AC;&#x153;good luck.â&#x20AC;? She hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really taught me to cook â&#x20AC;&#x201D; I guess she figured BH&G could do the job as well as anyone, and I must say, it rather did. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s everything from a simple pancake recipe to what I then thought was a superfancy dinner party dish (chicken Kiev) between those red-checkered binder walls. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know if chicken Kiev actually has any roots in Russian cuisine. My gut tells me that no, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just something someone once decided to call it after too many vodka shots. Chicken Kiev is a piece of chicken wrapped around a stick of butter, coated in bread crumbs, browned and baked. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Sarah Henning is a writer, Anyway, I had this urge blogger, vegetarian and mom. for chicken loaded with Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll usually find her eating butter, and I called in something with kale in it.

Grilled cheese with Brie, bacon, arugula and blueberry jam


by Megan Stuke some help because it was nearing on the afternoon and I was at work, and the chicken? Still in the freezer. I could see a big package of chicken breasts in my mindâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eye, just waiting to be wrapped around some butter and secured with a toothpick. What could be better? I called home and asked Kiley to pull the chicken from the freezer, and I fantasized all day about this â&#x20AC;&#x2122;70s classic that was soon to adorn my dinner plate. Until I got home and saw that instead of split breasts, the only chicken in the freezer had been drumsticks. Wah wah wah. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wrap a drumstick around a stick of butter! Hopes, they were dashed. Until I decided that it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really mattered to me whether the butter was inside the chicken, and really, who needed that browning step anyway?

Also, it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take an hour like real chicken Kiev does because you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to pound out chicken breasts and wrassle them around the butter, fight to secure them with a toothpick, and then hope it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t all fall apart Megan Stuke/Special to the Journal-World in the browning part of the show.

Low-carb cauliflower-bell pepper quiche

A quiche that keeps the carbs and fat at bay By J.M. Hirsch Associated Press

After you’ve stuffed yourself with turkey and taters and gravy and pie and — of course — stuffing, you might be ready to do penance before the next rush of holiday calories. If so, this is the dinner for you. For those post-Thanksgiving nights when you need something lighter, I give you this simple, low-carb, high-flavor “quiche” that calls for no grains, no gluten and no heavy lifting. It has, in fact, become my go-to dinner on busy weeknights simply because it is so effortless. It also happens to be pretty versatile. The whole thing is cooked in a single skillet and requires only a few minutes hands-on time. The “crust” is made from caramelized cauliflower florets, but actually any number of other vegetables could be substituted. I’ve done it with broccoli florets, as well as cubed butternut squash. This quiche also can be seasoned however you like. I usually keep it simple with thyme and garlic, but you can take it in any number of directions.

Low-Carb Cauliflower-Bell Pepper Quiche Be sure to cut your cauliflower florets very small; something between the size of a nickel and quarter is ideal. This ensures they cook quickly and evenly in the skillet. Start to finish: 30 minutes Servings: 4 5 cups small cauliflower florets (about 1 head) 1 large red bell pepper, cored and chopped Salt and ground black pepper 8 egg whites (or 1 1/2 cups pasteurized egg whites) 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme 2 cloves garlic, minced 1/3 cup fat-free crumbled feta cheese Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Coat the pan with cooking spray, then add the cauliflower florets and bell pepper, arranging them in an even layer. Season with salt and pepper. Cook, without stirring, for 3 minutes. Stir to turn the florets, then let them cook another 3 minutes without moving them. Once the florets are evenly browned, cover the pan and cook another 3 to 4 minutes. In a bowl, mix together the egg whites, thyme and garlic. Pour evenly over the vegetables, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover the pan and cook for 3 minutes. Sprinkle the feta over the quiche, then cover again and cook for another 3 to 4 minutes, or until the eggs are completely cooked. Season with salt and pepper.

Italian surf and turf with roasted red pepper sauce

Pair shrimp, sausage for easy party food By Sara Moulton Associated Press

With the holidays getting into full swing, life for most of us is getting hectic. Between all the big meals, the parties, the kids needing treats for their classes, never mind our day jobs ... ! Who has time for it all? Well, this dish — my Italian take on surf and turf — will come to your rescue. It is ridiculously easy to make (especially if you use jarred roasted red peppers) and involves just seven ingredients (not counting salt and pepper). But I’ll confess that I stole the basic premise — the shrimp and sausage part — from my friend, and one of my favorite cookbook authors, Bruce Aidells. Wrapping shrimp around a nugget of sausage was an idea he talked about in his book, “Bruce Aidells’ Complete Sausage Book.” I was amazed the first time I made his recipe. The two proteins meld wonderfully when baked. This is such an impressive trick and looks


Bad Santa One drink 4 to 5 ounces eggnog 11/2 to 2 ounces Fireball Cinnamon Whiskey Steam the eggnog, rim a standard Irish coffee glass with a mix of cinnamon and sugar. Add Fireball Whiskey to the glass and add the steamed eggnog and froth to the glass and top with whipped cream then dust with more cinnamon. Glass shape: Irish coffee glass; Garnish: whipped cream and cinnamon powder. What’s your inspiration for this drink? Jeff Helsley (Owner of Goatfeathers). This drink would pair great with … Good or bad, Santa always gets cookies.

You’re Nerdy Hot One drink 4 to 5 ounces hot chocolate 1 ounce UV Whipped Cream Flavored Vodka 1/2 ounce Goldschlager Rim a standard size Irish coffee glass with sugar. Steam your favorite hot chocolate. Add Goldschlager and UV Whipped Cream Vodka to the glass and top with the steamed hot chocolate. Add whipped cream and dust it with cinnamon and chocolate sprinkles. Glass shape: Irish coffee glass; Garnish: whipped

so clever, it makes the perfect appetizer or hors d’oeuvres for a holiday party. I used large shrimp and fresh Italian turkey sausage, but if you can only find smaller shrimp or another variety of turkey sausage, go for it. However, you will need to use fresh (not dried, cured or cooked) sausage for the shrimp and sausage to stick together. I gilded this Italian surf and turf with a red pepper sauce. Pureed roasted red peppers make a thick, rich sauce all by themselves; I just intensified the flavor with a bit of balsamic vinegar and extra-virgin olive oil. There are excellent brands of jarred roasted peppers at the supermarket, but avoid any packed in oil. If you want to roast your own peppers, you can do so by holding the fresh peppers with tongs over a gas burner on the stove or broiling them on a sheet pan, set about 4 inches from the heat source. Either way, turn them until they are charred on all sides. You then transfer

the blackened peppers to a bowl, cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let them stand for about 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, the skin will easily peel off and the core and seeds can be removed without trouble. By the way, this red pepper sauce has many applications of its own. You could use it as a dip for raw vegetables or a sauce for roasted vegetables, pasta, sauteed mushrooms, polenta, steak, chicken or fish. When the holidays are long gone and you have finally caught your breath, I am hoping you will remember this little dish and make it part of your weekly dinner lineup.

Italian Surf and Turf with Roasted Red Pepper Sauce Start to finish: 30 minutes Makes 16 shrimp 16 peeled and deveined

large raw shrimp (about 8 to 10 ounces) 6 ounces hot or sweet Italian turkey sausage meat (about 2 links) 2 tablespoons extravirgin olive oil, divided 2 cloves garlic, minced, divided 1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano Kosher salt and ground black pepper 1 cup roasted red peppers, drained and patted dry 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar Heat the oven to 400 F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with kitchen parchment. Arrange the shrimp on the prepared baking sheet with all of the shrimp facing the same direction to form a series of C’s. Remove the casings from the sausage, place a small mound of the sausage in the center of each shrimp and press down so that the shrimp and sausage filling make a solid round. In a small bowl, combine 1 tablespoon of the olive oil with half the garlic and all of the oregano. Sprinkle the shrimp lightly with salt and pepper, then brush the

cream, cinnamon and chocolate sprinkles. What’s your inspiration for this drink? My friend Amanda Fairchild. This drink would pair great with … Nice cold winter day in front of a nice roaring fire.

(The hotel is the latest venture for cyclist and Tour de France veteran Greg Hincapie and the restaurant’s name is a tribute to Hincapie’s seventeen Tour rides.)

Glass shape: Irish coffee glass; Any special tools: Zester; Garnish: whipped cream, orange zest and nutmeg. What’s your inspiration for this drink? Is it possible to make eggnog even better than it is? This drink would pair great with … This drink is total decadence. Probably best with caviar on toast points.

Meanwhile, in a blender combine the red peppers, the remaining tablespoon of oil, the remaining garlic, the vinegar and salt and pepper to taste. Blend until smooth. Transfer to a small saucepan and heat just until hot. To serve, arrange the shrimp on a serving platter, then drizzle each with some of the sauce.

LAUREN TEBEAU of The Oak Table in Columbia, S.C., creates a honey cranberry tart drink for the holiday season. 1/2 ounce ginger-infused vodka (see NOTE) 1/2 ounce apple cider Muddle one orange wedge with the honey and a pinch of cinnamon and sugar. Add Prichard’s cranberry rum, ginger vodka and apple cider and shake. Pour over fresh ice into a rocks glass and garnish with frozen cranberries and an orange twist. Glass shape: Rocks glass (wide mouth tumbler); Any

special tools: spoon for muddling; Garnish: cranberries, orange twist. Inspiration: The first time I tasted Prichard’s Cranberry Rum I immediately thought of autumn and the holidays. As we became more adventurous with our cocktail list, we had more ingredients to play with which led to the creation of this cocktail. NOTE: How to infuse vodka: Finely grate 1 teaspoon

One drink 1 ounce George Dickel No. 12 (white label) 1 splash Tim Burton’s Maple Syrup 3 dashes bitters 2 ounces hard cider Combine all ingredients except hard cider and shake with ice cubes. Fine-strain into a chilled flute, top with hard cider and (optional) garnish. Glass: flute; Tools: shaker, strainer; Garnish: orange twist and candied cranberry.

Bartenders share their recipes for seasonal cocktails

By Susan Ardis


A couple of weeks ago, I was fortunate enough to be a judge in the American Harvest Bartendersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Challenge at City Roots urban farm in Columbia, S.C. It was great fun for me and the other judges (Anne

Postic, Jonathan Sharpe and Jason Johnson) to be able to sample some creations from Columbiaarea bartenders featuring American Harvest vodka. After some serious deliberation, the winner of that contest (taking first and second place in the judgesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; category) was Kristian Ni-



emi of Bourbon and Rosso. Niemiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hayride (a mixture of pecan-infused American Harvest, Strohe Jagertee and a syrup of Lazy Magnolia Jefferson Stout, maple syrup and orange bitters) took first place, and his Adrian Balbos (rosemaryinfused American Harvest, cherry liqueur, cherry pre-

serves and Fizz 66) placed second. Joshua Streetman of Motor Supply won the peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s choice vote with his Harvest Aviation: American Harvest, Shady Grove Farms lemons and homemade maraschino cherries. Anyway, after the imbibing was done, I asked bartenders

Olando Patterson, manager of Goatfeathers, and Lauren Tebeau, bar manager and event coordinator at The Oak Table, if they would like to share their recipes for some holiday cocktails. Here are their offerings for the season: Please see COCKTAILS, page 9B

Dear Annie: I have not shared a birthday, holiday or special occasion with my son for the past five years, since he married. He has two children now. We always have been close, but I’m so sad that my daughter-in-law won’t let me be a grandmother. Their first year of marriage, they alternated holidays and combined our families. When they had their first child, however, “Rhonda” said it was too much, and now all holidays are spent with her family. They are wonderful people, but she is not willing to share her toddlers’ time with her husband’s family. I do not get the privilege of babysitting or having the kids over to my house for the day. I am not allowed to pick them up or bring them places. Rhonda is socially immature, and I believe she is naive as well as selfish. She holds all power and control

and is judgmental and unkind. She gives every excuse to avoid us. I’ve tried several times to discuss this with her, have prayed and have shared words of wisdom and scripture, but nothing breaks through. My son prefers to avoid a confrontation. Should I also give up? — Grandmother Missing Out Dear Grandmother: How sad that Rhonda denies her children the privilege of knowing all of their grandparents. Would your son be willing to bring the kids to

Costumes, sets rule in ‘Mob City’ The ambitious new miniseries “Mob City” (8 p.m., TNT) returns to a doomed City of Angels. Created by Frank Darabont (”The Walking Dead”), it’s set in the glamorous yet corrupt world of post-World War II Los Angeles, a place where cops, chorus girls and gangsters might mingle to hear some adventurous jazz as that art form migrated from swing to bebop and beyond. An impressive cast includes Jon Bernthal as detective Joe Teague, a decorated ex-Marine with a killer reputation that earns him the attention of folks on both sides of the law. Neal McDonough plays a crusading police captain so squeakyclean that even his own men call him “the Boy Scout.” On the other side of the ledger, Ed Burns plays gangster Ben “Bugsy” Siegel, and Jeremy Luke is Mickey Cohen. ‘‘Mob City” has its moments, many of them. But I couldn’t help feeling that most of its creative energy was expended on costumes and set design. Still, the music is impressive, the acting capable, and the story moves forward like a locomotive. The show will air in two-hour installments over three Wednesday nights.

“Kirstie” (9 p.m., TV Land) gets where it’s going in record time. Within 60 seconds, we discover that vain, aging Broadway star Madison Banks (Kirstie Alley) gave up a child for adoption when she was an ambitious and evidently promiscuous starlet. And that grown-up child, Arlo (Eric Petersen), a lumpy nerd from New Jersey, wants his mommy. Rhea Perlman plays her personal assistant and Michael Richards stars as her seedy chauffeur. That puts two “Cheers” regulars and a “Seinfeld” star in the cast. What more do you need? Tonight’s Other Highlights

your home for a visit without Rhonda? And if you can manage it, consider inviting the entire family, including Rhonda’s folks, to your place now and then. We also recommend you work on ways to warm up the relationship with Rhonda. Surely you can find something to admire about her and keep quiet about the rest. We hope, in time, she will realize that what goes around comes around. Dear Annie: My husband and I frequently go out to dinner with several other couples. One of the wives is a vegetarian. That’s fine, but she sometimes makes a scene with the server. She argues about the way things are prepared and accuses the waitstaff of lying. It’s become quite embarrassing, and some of our other friends refuse to go out with her anymore. It recently happened again. My husband and I


For Wednesday, Dec. 4 This year you will follow your intuition, especially when dealing with family and real-estate matters. If you are single, your life needs to have an element of excitement about it in order for a romantic relationship to be successful. If you are attached, the two of you work together to solidify your financial and emotional security. 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)  At times, you just can’t seem to give a higher-up the respect he or she desires. Are you revealing your true feelings? Tonight: Burn the candle at both ends. Taurus (April 20-May 20)  Kick back and take in the big picture. How you see a situation could change as a result of this process. Tonight: Listen to what a loved one shares. Gemini (May 21-June 20)  Deal with a loved one directly. Your fatigue could mark a discussion with this person. Take a deep breath before you start. Tonight: Togetherness. Cancer (June 21-July 22)  Defer to others, and follow through on what you want to do. That extra time you save could make all the difference in what happens. Tonight: Listen to your inner voice first. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)  Tap into an associate’s imagination, and you will be delighted and challenged simultaneously. You might want to reverse direction or do something differently. Tonight: Push on till the wee hours. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)


KID STUFF By Richard Auer


were mortified when she sent her meal back and accused the waiter of giving her the wrong dish. It ruined our night. I think we should say something, but my husband thinks it will ruin the friendship. Any suggestions? — Carnivore in Florida Dear Carnivore: It is not unheard of for restaurants to prepare vegetarian meals with chicken broth or beef stock without declaring it. However, it is rude to accuse the waitstaff of lying and cause a scene. We recommend you do a search in your area for vegetarian restaurants when socializing with this couple. Otherwise, let them know you won’t be going out to eat with them because it is obviously too stressful. ACROSS — Send questions to, or Annie’s Mailbox, P.O. Box 118190 Chicago, IL 60611.

 Your perceptions come from your intuition. Sometimes a partner might make fun of this quality. Tonight: Fun and games. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  Tension builds and creates greater motivation to complete a personal matter. You know that some of your ideas are great, but you get distracted easily. Tonight: Head home. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  Resist following your gut, as it could lead to trouble. A situation involving your health and daily life could take an interesting turn. Tonight: Visit with a loved one. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)  Be sensitive to your financial situation and where it could land you. You might want to jump on a sudden offer, but you seem to be restrained. Tonight: Your treat. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)  You are in your element. A family member might test your decisions as of late. You’ll adjust your approach as a result of their attitude. Tonight: The world is your oyster. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  Saying less and listening more is a safer course for you to take. What you hear could be quite unexpected yet significant. Use caution with your finances right now. Tonight: Not to be found. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)  Zero in on what you want. A friendship plays a strong role in the next few days. Your intuition also might be somewhat important, as you pick up a lot on a subliminal level. Tonight: Don’t overthink a personal matter.
