Teaching children how to write on paper with a pen or pencil may be going by the wayside in some parts of the country, but not in Kansas. The Kansas State Board of Education is expected to vote this week on new standards for handwriting that include both printing and cursive writing. “There is research that supports the role that handwriting plays in the cognitive development of kids,� said Department of Education spokeswoman Denise Kahler. “As we move away from the written world to the digital world, kids can lose that at an early age.� In many states, the focus on computer and keyboard skills has helped marginalize the importance of handwriting. That’s been especially true since many states adopted the Common Core standards for English language arts, which focus on technology skills and make almost no mention of handwriting skills. In Lawrence, teachers say it’s a question of finding the time to focus on handwriting while also meeting the technology-based expectations of the Common Core standards.

Kansas hasn’t spent enough on smoking cessation, critics argue By Giles Bruce gbruce@ljworld.com

On the fifteenth anniversary of the multibillion-dollar settlement between the tobacco industry and the states, tobacco prevention advocates say Kansas has underfunded programs to prevent or stop people from smoking.

In 1998, the four major tobacco companies settled with states for $246 billion over 25 years for smokingrelated medical expenses. A report to be released Monday by several antitobacco groups says that despite promises by state officials to the contrary, little of that money has been reinvested in tobacco control.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that states spend $32.1 million annually on tobacco prevention. Kansas funds such programs at a rate of $946,671 a year, ranking it 41st in the nation in percapita spending. Meanwhile, Kansas will collect a combined $154.3 million in revenue this year from

The reportâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s authors cited a study that found that in the first 10 years of Washingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s anti-tobacco program, the state saved $5 in tobacco-related hospitalizations for every $1 it spent on prevention. Instead of funding tobacco control, however, states have used much of the settlement money to close short-term budget gaps, said Vince Willmore, spokesman for the Campaign for Tobacco Free Kids, one of the organizations behind the report. But Miranda Steele, spokeswoman for the Kansas Department of Health and Education, said outcomes are more important than spending. She said that the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s high-school smoking rate (14 percent, below the national average of 18 percent) is lower than that of neighboring states, including some that spend more per capita on tobacco prevention. Regardless, she said, future improvements wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come from just the settlement dollars but â&#x20AC;&#x153;other communitylevel interventions.â&#x20AC;? She pointed to the departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chronic Disease Risk Reduction grants, which pay for programs that promote quitting smoking and other healthy lifestyle choices, and its tobacco prevention quitline (1-800-QUIT-NOW or ksquit.org), which provides free counseling and advice to thousands of Kansans every year. State Rep. John Wilson, D-Lawrence, said he supports investing in programs that will show dividends down the road â&#x20AC;&#x201D; whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tobacco prevention, education or energy efficiency â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see much of that happening under the current administration. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Any increase of funding in any good idea in the state of Kansas is going to be difficult given the budget problems weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re facing,â&#x20AC;? said Wilson, who sits on the House Health and Human Services Committee. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And quite honestly, the budget problems weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re facing are largely driven by the governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tax plan.â&#x20AC;? The reportâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s authors recommend three steps to address tobacco use, including one Kansas implemented in 2010: banning smoking in restaurants, bars and workplaces. The authors also call for a higher cigarette tax. Kansasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; tax of 79 cents per pack, which was last raised in 2003, is below the national average of $1.53 per pack, ranking 36th in the country. Their third solution is investing in tobacco prevention programs such as media and adverting campaigns, community and school education programs, counseling services, and increased access to tobacco cessation medication and aids. According to the report, Kansas spends $927 million annually on tobacco-related health care costs, including $196 million on Medicaid recipients. The report is being released Monday by the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, American Heart Association, American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network, American Lung Association, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and Americans for Nonsmokersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Rights.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 120 minutes, at a minimum, in the English language arts block at the elementary level,â&#x20AC;? said Steve Bonsignore, a Teacher On Special Assignment, or TOSA, who works with elementary teachers on reading and writing instruction. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The question is not do we teach handwriting, cursive and keyboarding, but whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an appropriate amount of time to spend on each of those things. Lawrence has and will continue to teach penmanship and cursive, and will look at recommendations of [the Department of Education]. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a matter of finding that balance.â&#x20AC;? Indiana is one state that reportedly has made instruction in cursive optional for schools. Schools in Daytona Beach, Fla., and suburban Washington, D.C., have taken similar action. In Kansas, one of only seven states that still requires instruction in cursive writing, the state board appears poised to emphasize both technology and penmanship. Keyboarding standards, which are classified under library and media technology, call on students as young as second grade to be able to name parts of a computer, use a mouse and keyboard appropriately, and to print documents.

dying at a rate of about 30 percent per year for the last several years. Chip Taylor, a professor of insect ecology at Kansas University, said about 70 percent of vegetation requires pollination by insects. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we eliminate those insects, then we diminish that vegetation and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to be losing plants,â&#x20AC;? Taylor said in an interview earlier this year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a fabric of life out there thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mediated by pollinators and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why we really have to support those populations.â&#x20AC;? Taylor said Colony Collapse Disorder, the sudden and widespread disappearance of adult honeybees from hives, is mostly affecting beekeepers who move their bees from place to place to pollinate crops grown commercially, such as those in large orchards. With this in mind, Julie Mettenburg, the executive director of the Kansas Rural Center, a farmer-led, private nonprofit, saw the need for more individual beekeepers who would keep their colonies local â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and keep them alive. With the grant from

L AWRENCE J OURNAL -W ORLD But state officials believe thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no reason to abandon handwriting. Besides helping develop fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination, Kahler said, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also an important part of basic literacy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even though we are digital, we still have to read handwriting and cursive to be successful,â&#x20AC;? she said. The state board meets Tuesday and Wednesday this week in Topeka. Board members are expected to vote on the handwriting standards Tuesday, as well as proposed new standards for theater and English language proficiency for nonnative English speakers. Also this week, the board is expected to decide what type of reading and math assessments will be used in 2015 and beyond as schools across the state fully implement the Common Core standards. Department of Education officials are recommending a hybrid approach to future testing so that students in grades 3 through 8 would take tests being developed by the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium, but high schools would have the option of offering a variety of tests, including Smarter Balanced, the ACT and SAT tests, or other tests approved by the U.S. Department of Education.

nature, the KRC will hold a series of workshops, each focused on one of the following topics: training additional beekeepers, increasing the amount and quality of the pollinator habitat, and increasing access to locally produced honey. Mettenburg said that the nature of agriculture in Kansas is to grow a single crop over a wide area for a number of years at a time. This monoculture system is harming pollinators because they require diversity in their sources of nectar, she said. Douglas County was chosen for this project because of its resources and because residents are interested in the issue. For example, the master gardeners with Douglas County Research and Extension were recently recognized for their work in establishing a pollinator habitat on Kansas Universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s west campus. Planners are working on workshop details, Mettenburg said. During the next few months, she and other staff with the KRC will organize the content, speakers, and goals. The workshop will be held after the new year.

FESTIVAL OF NATIVITIES

Summer programs help retain reading rates By Micki Chestnut Special to the Journal-World

When teachers say goodbye to their students on the last day of school, they know when the students return in the fall, many will have forgotten some of what they learned during the previous school year. According to Terry McEwen, director of assessment, research and instructional resources for the Lawrence Public Schools, nearly 56 percent of students experience some level of skill or ability losses during summer break. But this SCHOOLS fall, when the Lawrence School District evaluated Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) reading scores, they discovered that students who had been involved in the summer program at Boys & Girls Club of Lawrence retained more of the skills and abilities than usual. The 900 elementary students served at the Boys & Girls Club experienced 10 percent to 12 percent less Please see READING, page 4A

Cheryl Hickey and her mother, Mary Ann, both of Lawrence, walked slowly around the perimeter of the room, looking closely and carefully at the 400-odd scenes, each pointing out details the other may have missed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t distinguish a favorite,â&#x20AC;?

The idea for the Festival of Nativities began with Nancy Atchley, who spearheaded its creation after hearing of a similar exhibit located in the Kansas City area. Atchley is now part of the six-member committee that sets up and tears down the display each year, a feat that takes approximately 500 hours over three months. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like seeing the reactions of people when they first come in,â&#x20AC;? Atchley said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a little bit of work to set it up, but it makes it worthwhile when you see people come in, see them and just say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Wow.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Staff intern Nikki Wentling can be reached at 832-7196.

summer learning loss than the national average. The Kennedy Elementary School site, which included students from Prairie Park Elementary, saw the greatest gains, with a 15 percent reduction in summer learning loss, based on the national average. Why did these students remember more of what they learned in school last year? Many components contribute to student success, but a new addition was a team of community partners who collaborated with the school district to expand academic enrichment opportunities for the students in clubs this summer. The collaboration includes the United Way of Douglas County, which provides resources and support for a team including the Boys & Girls Club, Communities in Schools of Kansas, Girl Scouts of the United States of America and AmeriCorps. Rick Doll, Lawrence superintendent of schools, said

the district is pleased with the results. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The intervention helped to lessen summer reading loss,â&#x20AC;? Doll said. The United Way invested in enrichment programs at five Boys & Girls Club sites, which helped fund the hiring of district teachers to provide academic enrichment sessions for students. Students also dug into power hour kits filled with grade level academic enrichment materials used every day in the Boys & Girls Club after school program. The team also took unprecedented steps at Kennedy Elementary School, including funding a United Way AmeriCorps member serving with Communities in Schools who staffed Kennedyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s library all summer, so students could check out books and participate in book clubs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We know that when children succeed in school early, they are more likely to succeed in life, and United Way wants everyone in our community to succeed,â&#x20AC;? said Erika Dvorske, president and CEO of the United Way of Douglas County. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No one organization could realize these results, and if we can involve more part-

ners, we can increase this even more!â&#x20AC;? Cris Anderson, principal at Kennedy Elementary School, points to the partnership as a key reason more of the students at her school came back in the fall ready to learn. Typically, she said, teachers spend several weeks at the beginning of each school year reviewing material taught in the spring. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s frustrating for teachers, who hate to give up valuable instruction time re-teaching the same concepts, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s frustrating for the students, who get discouraged when they lose ground academically, Anderson said. The partnership was valuable. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not about me feeling like Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m trying to do this alone,â&#x20AC;? Anderson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a huge responsibility to try to give 260 K-5 kiddos everything they need. When you have that partnership, it feels doable, instead of just being left all alone.â&#x20AC;?

Southern Fried Chicken to open this week Editorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Note: These are excerpts from Chad Lawhornâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Town Talk column, which appears each weekday at LJWorld.com. To sign up for the Town Talk newsletter, go to: www2.ljworld.com/towntalk/signup

I

t is time for me to restock the supply of wet wipes in the F-150â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s glove box. A new fried chicken place â&#x20AC;&#x201D; with a drive-thru â&#x20AC;&#x201D; is coming to west Lawrence. The spot inside the Miller Mart gas station at 3300 W. Sixth St. is ready for its latest culinary adventure: D-Lux Southern Fried Chicken. Over the years, the gas station spot has served as the launching pad for several notable Lawrence restaurants. The Basil Leaf Cafe, Tortas Jalisco and Biemerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s BBQ are the better-known of the group. Well, a trained chef who has traveled the country, is betting that fried chicken will be the next culinary trend to take hold in the spot. Robert Douglas has worked as a chef and culinary executive in several resorts and casinos in the western U.S. But heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s originally from Georgia and South Carolina, which are better known as Fried Chicken Country. Douglas plans to open D-Lux Southern Fried Chicken this week, and when he does, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be touting a unique 48-hour fried chicken process. (Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m familiar with it. It usually takes me 48 hours to eat enough fried chicken to satisfy my appetite.) Actually, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m told

that is not the process heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s talking about. Instead, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s talking about a process taught to him by his grandmother where the chicken sits in a brine for at least 24 hours. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The big difference between this chicken and other chicken is that we take the time to brine it,â&#x20AC;? Douglas said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That is how you make sure it gets seasoned all the way to the bone.â&#x20AC;? The chicken also uses a wet batter of hydrated peppers, garlic and other spices, Douglas said. In addition to the chicken, Douglas said, D-Lux will be making its own side dishes, which include mashed potatoes, macaroni and cheese, braised greens, pickled beets, applesauce and even homemade pickles, spicy mushrooms and spicy pimento cheese. By the way, there also will be homemade hot sauce. (If you are driving by the F-150 and see me sucking on a wet wipe, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll know whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s up.) I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t yet seen a menu for the restaurant, but Douglas said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s planning for an average meal to cost between $6 and $10. And no, it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take 48 hours for you to get your order. The restaurant will make chicken

infill development.â&#x20AC;? As for the new owners â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the group name is Iowa 33 LLC â&#x20AC;&#x201D; they bring some significant retail development experience. The R.H. Johnson Company has done deals all over Lawrence and the K.C. metro area. The company was a major player in developing the areas around the two HyVee stores in Lawrence, and more recently, it has been involved in developing some of the outlying property around the Wal-Mart on South Iowa Street. The group seems to have good connections with national retailers and chains. As weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve reported, Menards is going in next to Home Depot, and an Oklahoma-based development group is trying to put together a deal for a new retail development just south of the Iowa Street interchange of the SLT. It will be interesting to watch what develops. There probably will be several questions emerge at Lawrence City Hall about future expansion of the retail corridor on South Iowa Street too. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll keep my ears open for them. But in the meantime, I have one big question: Will any of these new stores have a wider selection of tennis bracelets? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve bought about every color of nylon I can find.

 

Maybe trucks rather than tennis bracelets are on your holiday shopping list. If so, there is news on that front.

The longtime Lawrence business Kaw Valley Industrial, 1105 E. 23rd St., has expanded into truck sales. The new business is running under the name of Kaw Valley Truck Sales. Ryan Lauber, a son of the owners of Kaw Valley Industrial, is running the new venture. Lauber said the business is trying to focus on larger used trucks â&#x20AC;&#x201D; mainly threequarter ton and one-ton trucks â&#x20AC;&#x201D; that can be more difficult to find on traditional car lots. The business also is offering service work on diesel engines and truck and four-wheel drive accessories. The business also hopes to be a player in the agricultural truck market, with bale haulers and other farm trucks. The business, which carries only used vehicles, usually has an inventory of around 15 to 20 trucks, Lauber said. Lauber said the new focus seems to fit well with Kaw Valley Industrialâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s business, which includes ATVs, chainsaws, mowing equipment and other such items. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re kind of a onestop shop now,â&#x20AC;?

L AWRENCE J OURNAL -W ORLD

Renovation plans up for review By Peter Hancock phancock@ljworld.com

The Lawrence school board will review schematic designs tonight for renovation projects being planned at Free State High School and Kennedy School. Construction at those buildings is tentatively slated to begin in June 2014. The schematic designs show the general concepts of the floor plans and the features to be added to the buildings. Once approved, designers proceed to the next step of drawing blueprints and specifications for the projects. Design plans for all

the buildings being renovated are posted on the school district’s website as they are approved. The projects are being funded with the $92.5 million bond issue that district voters approved in April. Most of that money is being used to expand and upgrade elementary schools in the district, with particular focus on older buildings such as Kennedy in the east and central neighborhoods of Lawrence. The renovations at Kennedy are expected to cost about $8.6 million and include several additional classrooms, including three additional preschool rooms, more energy-efficient mechan-

ical systems, technology upgrades and security enhancements to the main entrance of the school. Plans at the two high schools are more modest because they received significant upgrades through an earlier bond issue. At Free State, the general plans also call for security enhancements, including fire alarm upgrades, as well as remodeling the office area to accommodate the addition of seven new classrooms. The estimated cost is $4.2 million. Also tonight, the board will hear an update on the status of the district’s capital outlay fund and a report on

projects being planned for the coming spring and summer. Several changes to the board’s policy manual are also on the agenda, including changes to policies dealing with bullying by staff and parents, as well as the district’s policy against carrying weapons on school property and at schoolsponsored events, even if the person has a valid permit to carry concealed weapons. The school board meets at 8 p.m. at the district administrative building, 110 McDonald Drive. — Peter Hancock can be reached at 832-7259. Follow him at Twitter.com/ LJWpqhancock.

to be the most responsible stewards possible,” he said. For the Senate, the examination of the athletics fee is part of a broader critical look at its budget and finances. Members of KU’s student Senate have been meeting with the athletics department to discuss the issue. They’ve also met with other student governing bodies of other Big 12 universities recently. Among the topics of discussion was the “role of student subsidies within the league,” Tetwiler said. Two other Big 12 heavyweights, the Uni-

versity of Texas and University of Oklahoma, receive no money from students or the universities, according to data from USA Today. Both schools, however, brought in tens of millions more dollars in total sports revenue than KU. Associate Athletics Director Jim Marchiony said that KU student fees are relatively small compared to those at other universities. He said KU student fees helped maintain Olympic and women’s sports and also keep costs low to students attending univer-

sity sports events. Previous student senates have flirted with axing the fees. In 2009, a senate committee considered cutting the student fee to athletics, but opted against it for fear that then-Chancellor Robert Hemenway would veto any cuts. At the time Hemenway opposed cutting the student fee on the grounds that it supported women’s sports and helped the university comply with Title IX regulations, which aim to ensure gender equality in athletics and other aspects of higher education.

Police search for missing KU student The Lawrence Police Department is investigating the case of a missing Kansas University student who was last seen early Saturday morning. Gianfranco Villagomez, a 23-year-old industrial design student from Lima, Peru, was last seen walking from the intersection of 9th and Michigan Villagomez streets toward his destination of 11th and Mississippi streets around 2:30 a.m. Saturday. Friends of Villagomez advised police it is out of character to be out of touch and not return to his apartment. Lawrence Police Sgt. Trent McKinley said officers were canvassing the

neighborhood and talking with Villagomez’s family and friends as of Sunday afternoon. “We’re in the information-gathering stage right now,” McKinley said. Villagomez’s girlfriend, Donna Jo Harkrider, called the police around 7 p.m. Saturday. According to police, Villagomez is approximately 5-foot-8 and about 165 pounds. He has dark brown eyes, black hair and glasses. He was last seen wearing a blue shirt with a KU Jayhawk logo on it, a long sleeve gray shirt, a black jacket, jeans and white tennis shoes. “I have a few friends who are out putting up flyers and knocking on doors,” Harkrider said Sunday. Anyone with information is asked to call police at 785-832-7509.

ROADWORK

35th Street closures for work begin today Lawrence

The Kansas Department of Transportation will have a 24/7 full roadway closure on eastbound and westbound 35th Street from Iowa Street to the Baker Wetlands Visitor Center and 31st Street from E 1700 Road to E 1750 Road in Lawrence/Douglas County. The project will begin today and proceed until mid-January. No marked detours will be provided. Drivers should expect minor delays and must use alternate routes during the roadway closures.

Construction is scheduled to continue at the intersection of Sixth and George Williams Way. Construction includes work on the existing median and the addition of a traffic signal. The second phase of this project, which began Oct. 28, will close right-lane traffic in all directions.

On Nov. 19, a traffic signal installation began at the Kansas Highway 10 and U.S. 40/Sixth Street interchange in West Lawrence. Project work includes the installation of traffic signals at the interchange ramps and new permanent pavement markings. Crews will complete project work during daylight hours, Monday through Friday, with some occasional Saturday work. Traffic impacts will include flagging operations through the interchange, both on U.S. 40/Sixth Street mainline lanes and the adjacent

K-10 ramps, at varying intervals throughout the project. Drivers should expect delays of up to 15 minutes and are encouraged to use alternate routes if possible. The overall scheduled completion date for the project is mid-January 2014, weather permitting.

Utilities crews will continue a water-line project on Highland Drive, from Oxford to Harvard. There will be no parking and the road will be closed to through traffic from Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

South Lawrence Trafficway

Earlier this month, a three-year construction project began to complete the six-mile, four-lane Kansas Highway 10/South Lawrence Trafficway freeway. The project will move existing K-10 onto a new alignment that will begin at the south junction of the U.S. 59 and K-10 interchange and reconnect with existing K-10 in East Lawrence. Construction work on the project will be completed in phases. Each phase includes specific work and advance notification will be sent under separate cover for each phase of construction, including planned traffic impacts. Emery Sapp & Sons Inc., of Columbia, Mo., is the primary contractor on this expansion project with a total contract cost of $129.8 million. The overall scheduled completion date for the project is fall 2016.

BRIEFLY Shootings area has Man arrested after seen other killings office disturbance

Dead whales suspected to be from same stranded pod

T OPEKA â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The area surrounding a central Topeka home in which three people were found shot to death has seen four other homicides in a little over six years. But The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that some residents say the Central Park neighborhood is a good one that has improved in recent years. Topeka police still have not publicly listed any suspects in what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve described as the first quadruple homicide in the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history. One female victim was found at a Topeka restaurant about a half-mile from her home, where the bodies of two men and a woman were found. The same home was the site of a teenage boyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shooting in September 2007. Also, shooting deaths occurred within several blocks in October 2009, August 2011 and June of this year.

Winter weather gums up KC metro

French relative to visit Morganville

KANSAS CITY, MO. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A fresh round of freezing rain and snow slickened roads across a large swath of Kansas and Missouri on Sunday. Numerous accidents were reported, and the National Weather Service issued a series of winter weather advisories urging caution. The wintry precipitation began falling Saturday and continued into Sunday night. The hardest-hit part of Kansas was the north-central section of the state, where 6-inch accumulations were recorded. Two inches fell in the northwest and 2 to 4 inches in the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s far northeast section. Light snow and freezing drizzle were reported in southcentral, southeast and central Kansas, said Kris Craven, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service office in Topeka. The department planned to focus on hit-and-run accidents and those involving injuries and intoxicated drivers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been real heavy,â&#x20AC;? Cravens said of the snowfall, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been enough to cause problems.â&#x20AC;? In Missouri, an inch fell at Kansas City International Airport and 3 to 4 inches in the northwest part of the state.

M ORGANVILLE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A small Kansas town that helped a French village recover after World War II will get a visit this month from a relative of one of the beneficiaries of the aid. Gerard Torlotting and his family will arrive in Manhattan on Dec. 28 and travel to Morganville on Dec. 29 for a reception, the Topeka Capital-Journal reported. In 1948, Morganville reached across the Atlantic Ocean to send food, clothing and other aid to the small wine-growing village of Feves through Operation Democracy, which later became Sister Cities International. Torlotting is the nephew of Herni Torlotting, the Feves schoolmaster who helped distribute the items after nearly 75 percent of the village was destroyed. In the warâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s aftermath, there was little food for the 325 residents, and milk for children was scarce. Morganville was among 200 U.S. cities that adopted European towns to help them recover from the effects of WWII, Vaughan said. However, Morganville, with its 250 residents in 1948, was the smallest town involved in the program, and its fundraising efforts were among the most unusual.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;

Of the original group of 51 found near the Everglades, 22 are now known to be dead, assuming the dead whales found Sunday came from that group. The first six beached on the Gulf coast of the park early last week, four were euthanized after being discovered nearby near death and another was found dead later. No cause has been determined for the strandings, which can take place for a variety of reasons, both natural and man-made. Mase said officials will look into whether a virus spreading among dolphins and whales in the Atlantic could have been involved.

ous state, federal and local agencies, as well as nonprofit groups, attempting to prevent the whales from beaching themselves. The 11 dead whales were discovered by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Veterinarians will perform necropsies on them today. No live whales could be found over the weekend, despite flights by Coast Guard helicopters and searches by boats. The last time live whales were seen, three groups with a total of 20 whales were heading south Friday, toward where the dead whales were discovered Sunday.

KENNEDY CENTER HONORS RECIPIENT BILLY JOEL, center, goofs off between fellow honorees Shirley MacLaine, left, and Herbie Hancock on Sunday night at the White House.

Joel, 4 others honored By Brett Zongker Associated Press

WASHINGTON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The â&#x20AC;&#x153;Piano Manâ&#x20AC;? who became one of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best-selling artists of all time with such hits as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just the Way You Are,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Uptown Girlâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Allentownâ&#x20AC;? was awarded the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s highest honor for influencing American culture through the arts Sunday. Billy Joel joins Carlos Santana, Herbie Hancock, opera star Martina Arroyo and actress Shirley MacLaine in receiving the Kennedy Center Honors. All of them have been playing music, dancing or singing since they were children â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and they have never stopped. Joel said the honor stands apart from his six Grammys. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is different. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s our nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capital,â&#x20AC;? he told The Associated Press. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is coming more from my country than just people who come to see me. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a little overwhelming.â&#x20AC;? The 64-year-old musician born in the Bronx has been playing the piano since he was a boy, growing up on New Yorkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Long Island. There was always music in the house, he said. His mother sang. His father played the piano. Impressing girls, though, is what hooked

Joel into making a career of music, he said. Joel just announced a 2014 concert series at Madison Square Garden in New York â&#x20AC;&#x153;to avoid schlepping around the world,â&#x20AC;? but he still plans to play concerts nationwide. President Barack Obama saluted the honorees Sunday night, and top entertainers will offer tribute performances for each honoree. The show will be broadcast Dec. 29. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The diverse group of extraordinary individuals we honor today havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just proven themselves to be the best of the best,â&#x20AC;? Obama said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Despite all their success, all their fame, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve remained true to themselves â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and inspired the rest of us to do the same.â&#x20AC;? Hancock, 73, got his start at the piano at age 7 while growing up in Chicago. Soon he was playing Mozart and discovered jazz in high school. MacLaine, 79, has been acting on stage and screen for six decades ever since she began ballet at age 3. Her film debut came in 1955â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Trouble with Harry,â&#x20AC;? directed by Alfred Hitchcock, and she won the Oscar for best actress for â&#x20AC;&#x153;Terms of Endearmentâ&#x20AC;? in 1983. More recently sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been playing a role in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Downton Abbeyâ&#x20AC;? on PBS.

BRIEFLY Mandelaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life, legacy honored in S. Africa CAPE TOWN, SOUTH AFRICA â&#x20AC;&#x201D; In death, Nelson Mandela unified South Africans of all races and backgrounds Sunday on a day of prayer for the global statesman â&#x20AC;&#x201D; from a vaulted cathedral with hymns and incense to a rural, hilltop church with goat-skin drums and barefoot dancing. Mandela was remembered in old bedrocks of resistance to white domination as well as former bastions of loyalty to apartheid. â&#x20AC;&#x153;May his long walk to freedom be enjoyed and realized in our time by all of us,â&#x20AC;? worshippers said in a prayer at the majestic St. Georgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cathedral in Cape Town, where the first white settlers arrived centuries ago aboard European ships. South Africaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reflection on Mandelaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s astonishing life was a prelude to a massive memorial in a Johannesburg stadium Tuesday that will draw world leaders and luminaries. They will gather to mourn, but also to salute the achievements of the prisoner who became president and an emblem of humanityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best instincts. The extended farewell â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a bittersweet mix of grief and celebration â&#x20AC;&#x201D; ends Dec. 15, when Mandela is to be buried in his rural hometown of Qunu in Eastern Cape province.

High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay described the law as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;landmarkâ&#x20AC;? and said it â&#x20AC;&#x153;was a huge achievement for all Afghans.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;But implementation has been slow and uneven, with police still reluctant to enforce the legal prohibition against violence and harmful practices, and prosecutors and courts slow to enforce the legal protections in the law,â&#x20AC;? she said. Afghanistan enacted its Elimination of Violence Against Women law in August 2009. It criminalizes child marriage, selling and buying women to settle disputes, assault and more than a dozen other acts of violence and abuse against women.

Isolation won’t solve U.S. problems

Baker leader As is the case for most university presidents these days, fundraising will be a top priority for Baker University’s new CEO.

L

ynne Murray has big shoes to fill, but we wish her well as she prepares to take over the presidency of Baker University from Pat Long next summer. After her selection was announced Thursday, Murray expressed her enthusiasm in joining the Baker family. The chairman of the presidential search committee praised Murray’s engaging and open personality. In a prepared statement, Long also expressed her enthusiasm about the hire and said Murray met her priorities for the job, including someone who can raise funds and make “a quick impact” on Baker. She also saw in Murray someone who would fall in love with Baker — its culture, community and students. It is, perhaps, a sign of the times, that both Murray’s experience and her top priorities when she starts her new job are focused on marketing and fundraising. Her current title at Gallaudet University in Washington, D.C., is vice president of development, alumni and international relations. The four items on her “to-do” list noted in Friday’s Journal-World are: raise funds, support sports, increase student diversity and fill open jobs. Across the country, college and university presidents are being forced to pay more and more attention to raising money and promoting their schools to alumni and prospective students. While most academic issues can be handled by provosts or other top administrators, the primary job of the president or chancellor is to create a positive image for the school to attract not only students but the financial support that is vital to the school’s success. This is even more critical at a private school, like Baker. Baker is a wonderful asset to Douglas County and has a loyal and supportive “family” of alumni and friends. Pat Long, Dan Lambert and their predecessors have worked hard to keep Baker on a solid financial and academic footing. Lynne Murray should be proud to inherit and promote that legacy of leadership.

WASHINGTON — The chairs of the House and Senate Intelligence Committees stated last weekend that the world was getting more unsafe. A few days later, the Pew Research Center reported that 52 percent of Americans think the U.S. should “mind its own business internationally,” the highest such total in the nearly 50-year history of that query. Taken together, these two items symbolize a serious emerging national problem. The crackup ahead lies in the mismatch between the challenges facing America and the public’s willingness to support an activist foreign policy to deal with them. Simply put: There is a splintering of the traditional consensus for global engagement at the very time that some big new problems are emerging. The traditional American response to such puzzles has been to form a bipartisan commission. A model is the path-breaking 2006 Iraq Study Group, co-chaired by James A. Baker III, former secretary of state; and Rep. Lee Hamilton, former Democratic congressman from Indiana. Giants serving with them included Sandra Day O’Connor, former Supreme Court justice; and Vernon Jordan, a banker, civil rights leader and counselor to presidents. For advice, they turned to such luminaries as Henry Kissinger, Zbigniew Brzezinski and Brent Scowcroft, all brilliant former national security advisers.

There is a splintering of the traditional consensus for global engagement at the very time that some big new problems are emerging.” All are part of the traditional foreign policy establishment that still commands the high ground intellectually but does not reflect the restless, frustrated mood of the American public. What should a modernday commission be worrying about? Rep. Mike Rogers and Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the chairs of the House and Senate Intelligence committees, respectively, said last Sunday on CNN that the world is not safer today than a few years ago. They were referring to the resurgence of al-Qaida in Syria, Iraq, Libya and elsewhere. These are not two-bit al-Qaida franchises anymore; the State Department received an intelligence report recently that 5,500 foreign fighters are operating with al-Qaida’s affiliate, the Islamic State of Iraq

and Syria. How should the U.S. combat this threat? Sorry, no consensus on that. Al-Qaida is even putting down roots in Egypt’s Sinai peninsula, according to Gen. Mohammed Farid el-Tohamy, the head of the Egyptian intelligence service. How can the United States help Egypt, America’s most important ally in the Arab world, defeat Islamic terrorism at the same time it moves to restore civilian government and a measure of democracy? No consensus on that one, either. And then there’s the huge foreign-policy challenge of Iran’s nuclear program. President Obama has made a bold interim deal with Iran. But to complete the agreement, and ensure that Iran’s nuclear program is truly peaceful, Obama will need strong support from Congress and the public. Right now, it’s hard to imagine that he will get it. The public doesn’t want war, but it doesn’t seem to like entangling diplomacy much, either. A modest proposal is that Obama should convene a younger group of American leaders: strategists, technologists, professors. It would be a learning exercise — to understand how the country should deal with the problems of the next 10 years without making the mistakes of the past 10. What has America learned from its struggles with Islamic extremism? What lessons do we take from our painful expeditionary wars? How can Americans too young to re-

member the Iranian revolution of 1979 engage that country but also set clear limits on its behavior? Happily, there is a new generation of thinkers who could form the bipartisan group I’m imagining. If you don’t know their names yet, you should. Marc Lynch of George Washington University, known to his online fans as “Abu Aardvark;” David Kilcullen, one of the architects of counterinsurgency success in Iraq and author of “Out of the Mountains,” an iconoclastic new book on future urban conflicts; Michele Flournoy, a clear-eyed former undersecretary of defense; Jared Cohen and Alec Ross, two technological wizards who advised the State Department under Hillary Clinton and are now with Google and Johns Hopkins University, respectively. I’d add the administration’s own Salman Ahmed, Tony Blinken, Ben Rhodes, Wendy Sherman and Jake Sullivan. What encourages me is that the same American public that wants America to mind its own business internationally also registers a two-thirds majority in favor of greater U.S. involvement in the global economy, according to the Pew poll. Young respondents were even more internationalist on this issue than their elders. This is a connected generation that can address problems in new ways — but it needs to get started. — David Ignatius is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.

OLD HOME TOWN From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Dec. 9, 1913: “‘People YEARS are crying to me to AGO prosecute Lynn, beIN 1913 cause he “fleeced” an innocent girl. I would rather prosecute the City of Lawrence for issuing licenses to such fakers,’ declared County Attorney J. S. Amick today. No warrant was issued today for ‘Prof. Lynn, the famous clairvoyant,’ who last week obtained $35 from a young woman domestic after pretending that he would straighten out certain love affairs for her.”

Food stamp funds To the editor: Somebody you know is receiving food stamps — but you probably don’t know it. The stigma persists; we don’t talk about it. The working poor are now getting less in food stamps. Life is harder this year due to changes in food stamp policy. Inequality for all is the norm. In Douglas County, 8,000 residents are receiving food stamps. I have received food stamps (SNAP, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) three times in my life, beginning 45 years ago in Kansas City. I was unemployed and got food stamps for six months. Then, 35 years ago, as a low-paid janitor at the Douglas County Judicial Building in Lawrence, I got food stamps for five months. Then, last year, being single and unemployed, I began getting $200 per month food stamps. When I began getting Social Security, I got less than $100 in food stamps. Then, with part-time work, it dropped to $16. Finally, with a better job, I didn’t need them anymore. Others aren’t so lucky. You can donate to Just Food or LINK and do the Food Stamp Challenge, but that just helps the symp-

tom, not the cause. Conservative Republican legislators in Topeka and Washington have erected barriers against needy people, cutting funding for food stamp outreach programs and not renewing the SNAP program in the U.S. Congress. Contact your representatives: Gov. Brownback, Sens. Pat Roberts and Jerry Moran, Rep. Lynn Jenkins and your local state representatives. Urge them to restore food stamp funding to its previous level. We need your help. Frank Janzen, Lawrence

Moral compass To the editor: The editorial, “Terrorist threat” (Dec. 5) supplied no new facts to bolster the arguments for exhaustive government tracking of the activities and lifestyles of, “all those living in the U.S.” The prevarications of two political hacks (Sen. Feinstein and Rep. Roberts) that there are “probably” more al-Qaida-linked organizations now making interdiction “exponentially” more difficult for law enforcement lacks evidence. This might be true if you include Wal-mart labor organizers in the totals. The editorial concludes that these

weasel-wording politicians are “leveling” with us. It suggests that our borders, coastlines, ports and our free wanderings are somehow threatened. I presume the representatives want more weapons and militarization of our law enforcement, increased surveillance and NSA spying along with curtailed rights for citizens. The editorialist must have been living at the bottom of an abandoned Kansas missile silo. McCarthyism and HUAC reduced our freedoms without increasing security. The public is very aware of the many rascals in Congress selling themselves out to powerful business interests arguing, for example, that cigarettes don’t cause cancer. China spent more on internal security this year than on their combined armed forces. They still have terrorist attacks. It has made the Chinese public more suspicious of their government. It hasn’t reduced rural riots. We already have a moral compass to guide us: our Constitution and Bill of Rights. There can be no compromise with these if we are to have a compact that helps us achieve mutual affection, respect and loyalty. It is all we have against the armies of the mindless and ignorant.

’Noles, Auburn to meet in final BCS

Back on track CHIEFS 45, REDSKINS 10

The Associated Press

As college football prepares for the final Bowl Championship Series, featuring a Florida State-Auburn championship game, it’s easy to see why the coming fourteam playoff won’t solve all the postseason problems. Heck, we might just miss the BCS. Maybe? It sort of worked out this season. Top-ranked Florida State (13-0) was the only team to get through the regular season unbeaten, and the Seminoles did it in dominating fashion. Auburn (12-1) won the Southeastern Conference, and among the teams with imperfect records the Tigers’ resume is best. “We all complain BIG GAME about the BCS, but isn’t What: BCS it funny how National often they Championget it right,” ship Florida State coach Jimbo Who: Florida State (13-0) Fisher said. The pair- vs. Auburn ings became (12-1) official Sun- Where: Pasaday night dena, Calif. when the final When: 7:30 BCS stand- p.m., Jan. 6 ings came out. There was no question about 1 and 2. It’ll be the ’Noles and Tigers at the Rose Bowl on Jan. 6 for the national championship. In the other marquee bowls: Q Alabama will play Oklahoma in the Sugar Bowl. Q Clemson will play Ohio State in the Orange Bowl. Q Michigan State will play Stanford in the Rose Bowl. Q Baylor will play UCF in the Fiesta Bowl. Of course, Big 12 champion Baylor (11-1) and Big Ten champion Michigan State (12-1) might argue with that top two. But over 16 seasons college football fans have built up what can be called BCS acceptance, learning to live with the fact that there is only room for two. Fans of particularly aggrieved teams (2000 Miami, 2004 Auburn, 2008 Texas, just to name a few) still burn over the slights. Generally, though, by the time the championship game kicked off, most everybody was on board. And only eight times before the BCS did No. 1 play No. 2 in a bowl game. “It’s been a remarkable seismic change for this sport,” executive director Bill Hancock said. “That was unthinkable before the BCS.” Now think about this season playing out under next season’s format. In the new world order known as the College Football Playoff, a selection committee will pick four teams to play in national semifinals. The winners play for the championship. So how would a panel that includes Tom Osborne, Archie Manning and Condoleezza Rice sort out this season’s top four? Florida State and Auburn, of course. And ... Baylor and Michigan State? But what about Pac-12 champion Stanford (11-2)? Among this season’s best teams, Stanford played the toughest schedule. And then there is two-time defending champion Alabama (11-1). “We’re not a natural playoff sport,” said Duke coach David Cutcliffe. “I think we can make this work with four. O Bowl glance on page 5B

KANSAS CITY WIDE RECEIVER DEXTER MCCLUSTER BREAKS FREE FROM WASHINGTON DEFENSIVE BACK TRENTON ROBINSON to score a touchdown on a punt return during the first half of the Chiefs’ 45-10 rout of the Redskins on Sunday in Landover, Md.

K.C. routs hapless Washington LANDOVER, MD. (AP) — Andy Reid referenced Nelson Mandela, Sporting Kansas City and mangled a metaphor about the Chiefs’ recent losing streak. Mike Shanahan looked like a beaten man, one who might be counting down his final days with the Washington Redskins. That was no thin line separating winning and losing when the Chiefs beat the Redskins, 45-10, Sunday. It was a chasm. The Chiefs (10-3) broke their three-game skid by doing what they did so well during their 9-0 start — beat up on a bad team. They scored on their first four possessions, sacked Robert Griffin III five times and Kirk Cousins once, and returned both a punt and a kickoff for a touchdown in Sunday’s rout. All of which prompted Reid to go off-topic, even in his usual monotone. “Sporting KC, I’m telling

I’m proud of those guys,” said Reid, referring to the team back home that won the MLS Cup on Saturday. “I didn’t mention Nelson Mandela’s death the other day, but what a tribute to mankind he is.”

OK, but what about getting back on track after two losses to the Denver Broncos sandwiched around a defeat to the San Diego Chargers? “It’s tough to lose three games in the National Football League, three consecutive games. It seems like a year,

those are dog years as you would say — each week that you have a loss in the NFL,” Reid said. “For the guys to come back and rebound after that, I was proud of that.” Across the way, the Redskins were their usual drama machine. They lost their fifth straight, and the stadium was virtually empty in the second half. It’s already far from certain as to whether Shanahan will return for a fifth season, and now there’s a report that he was close to quitting last year because of his relationships with owner Dan Snyder and Griffin. “It’s not the right time or place to talk about my relationship with Dan Snyder, or it’s not the right time and place to talk about something that happened a year ago,” Shanahan said. “I’ll get a chance to talk to Dan at the Please see CHIEFS, page 3B

Warm Florida welcome awaits Embiid By Gary Bedore gbedore@ljworld.com

Justin Harden wishes he could get his hands on dozens of tickets for the Kansas University-Florida Big 12/ SEC Challenge basketball showdown at 6 p.m. Tuesday in O’Connell Center in Gainesville, Fla. As it stands, Harden — KU freshman Joel Embiid’s former coach at The Rock School in Gainesville — has just a couple tickets to distribute for the clash between the Gators (6-2) and Jayhawks (6-2). “This is a hot ticket in town, to say the least,” said Harden, instrumental in the development of KU’s Embiid as a skilled basketball player.

Embiid, who took up basketball in Cameroon at the age of 15, attended The Rock last season after attending UP NEXT Montverde (Fla.) Acade- Who: Kansas my his junior (6-2) vs. year.

Embiid had 14 rebounds and 10 points in the state title game. “I think everybody is excited to see Joel play close by,” Harden said of Embiid, who has averaged 9.3 points and 6.6 rebounds this season, emerging as a possible — or is it probable? — top-five

SEC in familiar spot, playing for title ATLANTA (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A week ago, the Southeastern Conference looked as though it had finally been vanquished. The rest of the nation breathed a sigh of relief, clearly relieved it wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to watch the haughty SEC celebrate another national championship. Not so fast. After a wild Saturday in this most unpredictable of seasons, the SEC was back in a familiar position â&#x20AC;&#x201D; playing for a BCS title, albeit not in its usual role of favorite. No. 2 Auburn (12-1) landed a spot in the championship game against top-ranked Florida State (13-0) when the BCS pairings were announced Sunday night,

the fallout from Ohio State losing to Michigan State in the Big Ten championship game. The Seminoles were established as an early touchdown favorite for the Jan. 6 game at the Rose Bowl. Auburn doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sound the least bit intimidated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We feel weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the best team in college football,â&#x20AC;? running back Tre Mason said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to continue to prove it.â&#x20AC;? Ohio State had not lost a game in two years under coach Urban Meyer and needed one more victory to lock up a trip to Pasadena. Alas, in what has been a familiar theme since 2006, the SEC champion Tigers stepped up to claim the spot when the

Buckeyes were upset by Michigan State, 34-24. Auburn felt it deserved a shot at the title, no matter what Ohio State did. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no argument now, despite that collective groan from the SECâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s detractors, who have gotten downright tired of watching this conference win the final game year after year. Four SEC teams â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Alabama, Florida, LSU and Auburn â&#x20AC;&#x201D; have combined to win the last seven BCS championships, an unprecedented streak of dominance by a single league. In this part of the country, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a sense of entitlement that came across even before the Tigers defeated Missouri, 59-42,

Florida State started the season ranked just outside the top 10. Quickly it became apparent the Seminoles were much better than that. Auburn started this season picked to finish fifth in the SEC West. Coming off a 3-9 season with no Southeastern Conference victories, the Tigers steadily climbed up the rankings with a string of surprising, sometimes stunning, victories. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know if Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever had a team come as far as we have,â&#x20AC;? Auburn coach Gus Malzahn said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The first game of the season we were probably average at best.â&#x20AC;? The top-ranked Seminoles and No. 2 Tigers will meet at the Rose Bowl on Jan. 6 in the final BCS title game. Five things to know about the Seminoles and Tigers matchup: Heisman watch: Florida State star Jameis Winston is a huge favorite to win the Heisman Trophy on Saturday. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be just the second freshman to win the award, but the second straight to do it, joining Texas A&Mâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Johnny Manziel. Winston is on pace to break the NCAA record for passer efficiency rating (190.1) and has already set records for yards passing (3,820) and TD passes (38) for a freshman. Auburnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tre Mason made a late push to be a finalist, too. Mason ran for 304 yards on 46 carries in Auburnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s SEC championship game win against Missouri and ranks ninth in the nation at 124.7 yards per game, and has scored 22 touchdowns. Coaches: A pair of national coach of the year candidates in Florida Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jimbo Fisher and Auburnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Malzahn. Fisher is in his fourth season since taking over for the great Bobby Bowden. The program has gotten steadily better and this year, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been vintage Seminoles. Malzahn is in his first year as head coach, but just two years ago he was Auburnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s offensive coordinator under Gene Chizik. He directed the offense that helped Auburn win the 2010 national championship, with Heisman winner Cam Newton. Defensive difference: While both teams have offenses among the top-10 in the nation in yards per play â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Florida State is No. 1 and Auburn is eighth â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the Seminoles seem to have a huge advantage on the defensive side. Tempo: Auburn likes to go fast and few coaches use tempo as well as Malzahn. The Tigers average 71 plays per game with their spread attack, but would like to be in the 80s. Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher is in no rush at all. Running more of a typical pro-style offense, the Seminoles average 67 plays per game â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which makes their prolific offense even more impressive. Head-to-head: Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not much recent history between these teams. The last time they played was 1990 and Auburn won 20-17. Their only bowl meeting was the 1989 Sugar Bowl and Florida State took that one 22-14. The Tigers lead the overall series 13-4-1, though Bowden was 4-5 against Auburn.

MICHIGAN STATE FANS CELEBRATE THE SPARTANSâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Big Ten football championship early Sunday in East Lansing, Mich. East Lansing police said they arrested â&#x20AC;&#x153;multiple people.â&#x20AC;?

Arrests made during Michigan St. celebration EAST LANSING, MICH. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Thousands of Michigan State students and fans celebrated the football teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Big Ten title win Saturday night with large bonfires. East Lansing police arrested â&#x20AC;&#x153;multiple peopleâ&#x20AC;? Saturday night near River and Cedar streets, Capt. Jeff Murphy said in a statement. No injuries were reported in what he called â&#x20AC;&#x153;a large civil disturbance.â&#x20AC;? The No. 10 Spartans defeated No. 2 Ohio State, 34-24, late Saturday, earning its first Rose Bowl appearance in a quarter-century. Michigan State University President Lou Anna Simon issued a statement Sunday expressing pride at the victory and anger at the disorder, vowing punishment for any students involved. Murphy declined to release arrest figures Sunday, saying his department would have more details this morning. East Lansing police got help from Michigan State University police, state police and the Ingham County sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s department, Murphy said. River and Cedar streets are the traditional spot for Spartansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; sports celebrations. Celebrants threw landscaping trees, a bicycle and fire extinguishers into a bonfire near the Cedar Village apartments and overturned a car outside other apartment, The Detroit News reported. Erika Gonzalez, 26, of Lansing, said eight people approached a red car near Milford Arms apartments and quickly flipped it on its top. Officers surrounded another large fire about 2:30 a.m. Sunday and marched slowly down River Street to disperse the crowd. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The behavior last night on campus and in East Lansing by both students and non-students was disappointing,â&#x20AC;? Simon said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Unfortunately, the behavior of a small number casts doubt on many.â&#x20AC;? Simon said investigators would review the incidents â&#x20AC;&#x153;and individuals will be held accountable. I ask that you join me in reinforcing that Spartans honor the success of our teams by celebrating with class.â&#x20AC;?

Johnson wins World Challenge THOUSAND OAKS, CALIF. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Zach Johnson delivered the kind of theatrics that usually belong to Tiger Woods to win the World Challenge. Johnson holed out for par from the drop area on the 18th hole at Sherwood that got him into a playoff, and he won when Woods hit a poor shot into the bunker and missed a five-foot par putt on the first extra hole. The final World Challenge at Sherwood after 14 years was set up for the perfect sendoff. There was a record crowd and the tournament host was poised to win. Instead, Johnson rallied from four shots down with eight holes to play for his second win this year. Johnson moves into the top 10 in the world for the first time in his career.

Woodland fires final-round 68 SUN CITY, SOUTH AFRICA â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Thomas Bjorn rallied with a 7-under 65 to win the Nedbank Golf Challenge on Sunday, beating third roundleader Jamie Donaldson and Sergio Garcia by two shots. Former Kansas University golfer Gary Woodland shot a final-round 68 and finished with a 2-over 190 total, 22 shots backs. Bjorn finished with a 20-under total after dropping a shot on the last hole at Gary Player Country Club, his only bogey of the day. But he had enough of a lead to claim his first Sun City title and a $1.25 million winnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s check. Garcia also shot 65 for a share of second at 18 under, while Donaldson closed with a 70 after entering the day with a three-shot lead.

She slipped a pass in front of the goal to Lavrusky, who left-footed the ball into the bottom right corner of the net past diving goalkeeper Kelsey Wys.

pick in the 2014 NBA Draft. “It’s a shock to say the least to know we have an alumnus from our small little school in Gainesville that could be a No. 1 pick or a lottery pick. In all reality, we haven’t had an NBA player come from our school. We have a pretty decent basketball program that is continuing to build. Scottie (Wilbekin, 6-2 Florida senior) is an alumni. He is the first one who was big-time. Scottie has a chance to make an NBA roster probably next year. “It’s neat to know Joel is getting so much attention. I think rightfully so. He is really talented. God created him special and unique, that’s for sure,” Harden added. Embiid is looking forward to the homecoming of sorts. “It will be fun seeing my friends,” said Embiid, who hopes to make it over to The Rock sometime today, perhaps in time to attend a night game against Orlando’s West Oaks Academy. The Rock had the date of that game switched from Tuesday to Monday so Rock fans/Embiid supporters could attend the KU-Florida game. “My host family, my teammates, my high school coach ... it will be fun to see them. I look forward to seeing them. I loved it there. I gained a lot of game experience there,” added Embiid, who played sparingly his junior year at Montverde Academy, which had Kentucky

UF point guard to play J-W Staff Reports

University of Florida point guard Scottie Wilbekin was cleared to practice and will play Tuesday against Kansas University at the O’Connell Center, the Gainesville (Fla.) Sun reported. The 6-foot-2 Wilbekin returned to practice over the weekend after suffering a sprained ankle in last Monday’s 6564 loss at Connecticut, according to the school’s website and the Sun. McDonald’s AllAmerican freshman freshman Dakari Johnson manning the pivot. “I knew I would get better because the guys on our team were so good. We had a good group of guys, and winning state for the first time in school history was great. I got better every day in practice by competing. Coach Harden worked me, and I got a lot of minutes. I became confident.” Embiid, a former soccer and volleyball player in Cameroon, came so far he finished last season as the Gainesville Sun’s co-Florida player of the year. He went from being unranked by Rivals.com to start the season to No. 25 and No. 6 by ESPN at the end. “I don’t think I’m surprised,” Harden said. “From Day One when I saw him, I knew he had tremendous potential. I’m excited Joel has been able to work with the guys at Kansas and listen to what they want him to do and put all that into practice.

point guard Kasey Hill remains questionable for the 6 p.m., Central time, game. Hill, who suffered a high-ankle sprain Nov. 18 against Southern, began individual drills Wednesday but has yet to work out with the team. Wilbekin missed the first six games of the season because of a disciplinary suspension. In the three games since his return, Wilbekin is averaging 11.3 points, 5.7 assists and 3.1 steals Florida and KU will each take 6-2 records into the game. I feel he’s growing. Every single game he seems to be getting a little bit better. That’s good for them (Jayhawks), but good for him, really.” Embiid has a teamleading 17 blocks in eight games. He had a KUfreshman-record seven rejections against Villanova. Still learning the art of shot blocking, he had one in Saturday’s 75-72 loss at Colorado. He also had four rebounds and three steals in 28 minutes. “That’s one of the things coach Roberts (Norm, assistant) talked to me about. They are trying to get him to block more shots,” Harden said. “He wasn’t a tremendous shotblocker (in high school). He certainly had the ability. He volleyball-spiked a couple of balls last year. He wasn’t great at it. “He’s just learning to play without fouling. That was a big point of emphasis for us last year with him. As you saw in the

Monday, December 9, 2013

Villanova game (and at Colorado), he fouled out. That was kind of typical of what would happen here. He would get a foul on a screen. Then he’d get a foul on a blocked shot. We really wanted him to stay in the game, so it had to be a very calculated blocked shot. He’s getting much better at it, that’s for sure.” Noted Embiid: “I mean, there’s no technique to block shots. I am already tall. I just have to jump straight up to block the shot. I would say it’s almost the same thing as volleyball (which he played extensively as youth). When I want to spike the ball, I have to jump straight up and spike the ball. Blocking is the same thing.” Embiid, who speaks French, English and a dialect language of Cameroon, had no problem communicating in high school into college. “Joel is a very intelligent young man. He was able to pick up on the language and all the intricacies early on,” Harden said. “When he was here, he was a little more to himself. But he had a lot of fun with his teammates. There were times he’d be cracking everyone up. Everyone likes him.” That said, fans likely will be pulling for Embiid to have a good game, yet for Florida to win. “Obviously we are in Gator country, Gator nation,” Harden said. “We don’t have much to cheer for with our football team as they were this year. So they definitely want Florida to win. I think everyone wishes Joel the best of luck in his return to Gainesville.”

KANSAS CITY QUARTERBACK ALEX SMITH PASSES during the first half of the Chiefs’ 45-10 victory Sunday at Landover, Md.

The first quarter was so lopsided that nearly all the footprints in the snow were on one side of the 50. That discrepancy was quickly corrected when the teams changed sides. The score was 38-10 at halftime. Quintin Demps immediately answered the lone Redskins touchdown with a 95-yard kickoff return that resembled at times a winter stroll, part of a stunning tally of 321 return yards by Kansas City in the first half alone. Alex Smith completed

— Kansas City’s Jamaal Charles

14 of 20 passes for 137 yards and two touchdowns. Jamaal Charles ran 19 times for 151 yards and a score, and his 35-yard, right-then-left scamper was a highlight of the second half. “You gotta go out there and play no matter what kind of conditions outside,” Charles said. “Sleet, snow — you gotta go.” Tamba Hali and Tyson Jackson each had a pair of sacks, and Derrick Johnson set up a touchdown with a 40-yard interception return. Dexter McCluster took a punt 74 yards for a score and set up another TD with a 57yard return. Fans mostly deserted

Washington’s first snowy home game in decades, and those that stayed had plenty to boo. The Chiefs took the opening kickoff and gained 8, 9, 22 and 13 yards on their first four plays. The Redskins were a team with nothing to play for, and they looked like it. Shanahan eventually pulled the plug on Griffin, inserting Cousins for the final quarter. “It’s a terrible game to be a part of,” Redskins linebacker Brian Orakpo said. Notes: The runbacks by Demps and McCluster gave the Chiefs 10 return touchdowns this season. ... Griffin went 12 for 26 for 164 yards with one touchdown and an interception. Alfred Morris ran for 31 yards on 12 carries, putting him over 1,000 yards for the season. ... The Chiefs went 4-0 this season vs. the NFC East, Reid’s old division from his years with the Philadelphia Eagles. ... Redskins RB Evan Royster was carted off the field in the first half due to a severely sprained left ankle.

Raptors 106, Lakers 94 LOS ANGELES — Kobe Bryant had nine points and eight rebounds in his season debut for the Lakers, but Amir Johnson scored a career-high 32 points in Toronto’s victory over Los Angeles on Sunday night. Bryant began his 18th NBA season by going 2-for-9 with four assists and eight turnovers in 28 minutes.

Heat 110, Pistons 95 AUBURN HILLS, MICH. — LeBron James had 24 points, nine assists and seven rebounds, and Miami breezed past Detroit, avenging a home loss to the Pistons less than a week ago. Ray Allen added 18 points for the Heat, who were without Dwyane Wade but still shot 56 percent from the field and 11-of-28 from three-point range. Miami took an early 16-5 lead, and although the Pistons fought back, the Heat went on a 13-2 run in the third quarter to make it 74-57. Andre Drummond had 19 points and 14 rebounds for Detroit, which had its four-game winning streak snapped. The Pistons never showed any sign of slowing down Miami, and although they finished with 17 offensive rebounds, they never took full advantage of a potential edge inside. The Pistons beat the Heat 107-97 on Tuesday, and Miami looked motivated at the start of this one. The Heat’s first nine points came on the fast break, and a three-pointer by Allen made it 12-2. Miami led 59-53 at halftime, and Mario Chalmers and Allen each made three-pointers during the crucial run at the beginning of the third quarter. The Pistons entered as NBA leaders in steals per game, and the Heat turned the ball over 10 times in the first half, but Miami took care of the ball better over the final two quarters, and its torrid shooting never really let up.

Celtics 114, Knicks 73 NEW YORK — Jordan Crawford scored 23 points, and Boston posted the most lopsided victory in the NBA this season, bursting out to another sizzling start and pouring it on from there. Jared Sullinger added 21 for the Celtics, who jumped to leads of 12-0, 18-1 and 25-3 and improved their Atlantic Divisionleading record to 10-12. Boston scored the first 14 points Friday in a victory over Denver, though that one eventually got close. Not this time. The Celtics led 58-31 at halftime, then Crawford made four three-pointers in a 34-point quarter that extended Boston’s lead to 92-56. The Celtics then scored the first four points of the fourth for a 40-point bulge, triggering loud boos that would get louder at the final buzzer.

Sondheim documentary stands out On a night filled with musical treats, the documentary “Six by Sondheim” (8 p.m., HBO) stands out. I can’t claim to be a huge fan of the contemporary musical, or of some of Stephen Sondheim’s demanding and cerebral scores. But “Six” is an exemplary documentary — an astounding example of what creative filmmakers can do with a compelling subject and a wealth of footage. The “Six” in the title refers to six songs by the lyricist and composer: “Something’s Coming,” ‘‘Opening Doors,” ‘‘Send in the Clowns,” ‘‘I’m Still Here,” ‘‘Being Alive” and “Sunday.” The film features original interpretations of these numbers by Audra McDonald, Jarvis Cocker, Darren Criss, Jeremy Jordan, America Ferrera and Sondheim himself. The real power of the film comes in the use of overlapping interview footage with the composer. O An annual holiday season treat, musical competition “The Sing-Off” (8 p.m., NBC) returns with 10 a cappella groups. This year’s panel includes Jewel, Ben Folds and Shawn Stockman. Nick Lachey hosts. This seven-episode series concludes Monday, Dec. 23. O On a related note, Candace Cameron Bure hosts “K-Love Music City Christmas” (7 p.m., UP), and Ryan Seacrest hosts the “One Direction iHeartRadio Album Release Party” (8 p.m., CW). O So famous and beloved that they hardly need last names, two country music legends discuss their careers on “Dolly & Kenny: An Intimate Conversation” (8 p.m.).

Tonight’s holiday highlights O Fred Astaire narrates the 1970 holiday special “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town” (7 p.m., ABC). O Po fears he may be too busy around the holidays in the “Kung Fu Panda Holiday Special” (7 p.m., CW), from 2010. O Hormones ruin Ralphie in the 2012 sequel “A Christmas Story 2” (7 p.m., CMT).
