Answers sought on SRS funding By Scott Rothschild srothschild@ljworld.com

TOPEKA — Kansas legislators want to know whether Gov. Sam Brownback intends to put state funding in his recommended budget to cover the lease of the state welfare office in Lawrence and several other towns. The question came up during a meeting of the House-Senate State Building Construction Committee. Kansas Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services director of government affairs Gary Haulmark said he wasn’t 100 percent sure of the answer, but added, “I know there was a lot of interest.” Haulmark said that SRS Secretary Robert Siedlecki Jr. encouraged the governor to recommend the funding. Brownback’s office said the governor was still putting his budget proposal together for the Legislature to consider when the 2012 session starts in January. Last summer, Siedlecki proposed closing nine SRS offices, including the one in Lawrence. He said the closures were needed to comply with a mandated budget cut. But Lawrence officials protested, saying the closure would have created havoc in the community by disrupting needed services to thousands of people. The city and county agreed to pay SRS $450,000 over two years, which equals the amount of rent and overhead expenses, to keep the office open. Fort Scott, McPherson, Pratt and Marysville approved similar agreements. Siedlecki has since told legislators and local officials that he would request funding from Brownback and the Legislature to finance those offices through state funding.

Consider it saving for a nonrainy day. State water regulators have put Lawrence and all other entities that pull drinking water out of Clinton Lake on notice that the Douglas County reservoir is on the verge of drought conditions. The Kansas Water Office has issued a “drought watch” for entities that use Clinton Lake that will require the city to take some modest steps to save water. The water office has been monitoring the falling conservation pool at Clinton Lake, which is about 20 percent below its levels from May.

plan calls for more stringent conservation methods. Those can include:

Impose an odd/even lawn watering system for all customers in the city. Residents with odd-numbered addresses could water on certain designated days, while residents with even-numbered addresses could water on other designated days.

Restrict outdoor water use — including lawn watering and car washing — to before 10 a.m. and after 9 p.m.

Restrict golf course watering to tees and greens and require all such watering to occur after sunset.

Consider excess water charges if customers use a certain amount over and above their normal winter usage. Wagner said the city hasn’t had to implement such conservation measures in recent memory. But he said it was hard to know how serious the current dry conditions would become. “I think that is a big reason why the governor wants us to be cautious now with our water usage because none of us are very good at predicting the weather five or six months out,” Wagner said. Lawrence, however, is in a better position than most other communities because it gets its water from two major sources: Clinton Lake and the Kansas River. But during the past year, the city’s Kaw Treatment Plant has experienced problems with its main water intake. The plant’s output was significantly reduced for several days earlier in the year because the plant was having difficulty capturing enough water to operate efficiently. The city currently is in the process of interviewing engineering firms to look at ways to repair or replace the intake. Wagner said a replacement would be a multimillion dollar project, and he said construction likely would not begin until 2013. — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362.

With last week’s experience, we have now learned that when we need immediate notification of a large group, we need to use the externally hosted system.” — Julie Boyle, the Lawrence school district’s communications director gency like the bomb threat, at least not when SchoolMessenger was in use. Phone Messenger’s twotiered delivery system carries a two-level cost structure. Delivering messages on local lines is covered under the terms of the overall contract, Boyle said, and therefore does not cost extra. The district bought the service in 2007 for $33,000, and annual renewals are $6,000. Using the external system — the one used for school cancellations during inclement weather — costs an extra 17 cents per call, Boyle said. Such additional expenses are capped at $25,800 per year. Cost was not an issue considered when notifications were being sent out regarding the bomb threat, Boyle said. In fact, a second message from West went out on the external system later in the morning, when it was discovered that the initial messages weren’t going out in a timely manner. Officials simply didn’t know that using the local lines could lead to delays, Boyle said. They do now. “It’s just the matter of learning the capabilities of the system,” Boyle said. — Schools reporter Mark Fagan can be reached at 832-7188. Follow him at Twitter.com/MarkFaganLJW.

BRIEFLY State Rep. Ballard leads NBCSL meeting Creating jobs and improving the economy were major themes that emerged Friday during a conference led by state Rep. Barbara Ballard, DLawrence. “Putting our citizens back to work is paramount to the vitality of this country,” said Ballard, president of the National Black Caucus of State Legislators. The NBCSL was hosting its annual meeting in Chicago. “In addition to helping Americans get back to work, Congress needs to reach an agreement to extend unemployment benefits and prevent more Americans from slipping into poverty,” Ballard said. The NBCSL includes more than 600 African-American legislators from across the country.

New casino may draw 2 million-plus visitors MULVANE — The Kansas Star casino is making lastminute preparations as its Dec. 26 opening date nears. General manager Scott Cooper told reporters Friday during a tour of the site of a temporary casino that the casino is expected to draw more than 2 million people and ring up some $150 million in revenues in its first year. The casino has already signed up nearly 26,000 players from 39 states for its Players Club promotion.

Group seeks recall of Shawnee Co. treasurer TOPEKA — A citizen’s committee is seeking a special election to remove Shawnee County Treasurer Larry Wilson. The group filed a petition Friday seeking the recall election, alleging that Wilson has not performed his duties. The district attorney will have five days to verify the petition is legal. After that, committee members would have 90 days to obtain 31,395 signatures to force a countywide vote. The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that Wilson has been criticized by residents and county commissioners for problems with his office. A major source of contention is long lines at the courthouse to register vehicles since Wilson in February closed his office’s motor vehicle annex.

Trump might scrub his GOP debate Business mogul Donald Trump said Friday he might scrub a presidential debate that so far has drawn only Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum. Trump, the reality television star who has not ruled out an independent White House bid, had hoped for all of the Republican candidates to join in a debate he would moderate Dec. 27 in Iowa. Most have decided not to, leaving only Gingrich, a former House speaker, and Santorum, a former Pennsylvania senator. “I have to look into it,” Trump told Fox Business Network when asked whether he would host a twocandidate debate. Trump was most indignant about Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann skipping out. “She came up to see me four times. She would call me and ask me for advice,” Trump said. “She said if she wins, she would like to think about me for the vice presidency. Most importantly, I did a twohour phone call for her with her people. ... And after all that, she announced she was not going to do the debate. It’s called loyalty. How do you do that? It’s amazing to me.” Trump has said he might endorse a Republican but could make a third-party run himself.

The Lawrence-Douglas County Health Department gathered more than 50 people Friday and provided one ground rule: Have a conversation about the public health system that’s not focused on the public health department. Known as The Local Public Health System Assessment, the meeting took a broad community-based look at what factors translate into a healthy population. In the opening remarks, Stephen Fawcett, director of Kansas University’s Work Group for Community Health and Development, laid out what contributed to better outcomes in health. Ten percent was attributed to availability of health care services, 10 percent to the physical environment, 40 percent to lifestyle factors and behaviors and another 40 percent to social and economic conditions. “A conversation about the public health system is a conversation about how all of us can work together,” Fawcett said.

FDA panel backs birth control patch A panel of federal health advisers said Friday that a birth control patch from Johnson & Johnson probably carries a higher risk of blood clot risks than older drugs, but should remain available as an option for women who have trouble taking a daily pill. The Food and Drug Administration’s panel of reproductive health experts voted 19-5 that the benefits of the Ortho Evra patch outweigh its risks, including a potentially higher risk of dangerous blood clots in the legs and lungs. Panelists said the patch can be especially useful for younger women who have difficulty sticking to a daily drug regimen. “I have many teenagers and it’s the only method they’ll use — for them it’s the perfect method,” said Dr. Melissa Gilliam of the University of Chicago. The FDA sought the experts’ advice as part of its safety review of newer hormone-based contraceptives launched in the past decade. The agency is not required to follow their advice, though it often does. Johnson & Johnson’s weekly Ortho Evra patch was approved in 2001 and has been marketed for its convenience as an “option for busy women who are looking to simplify life.” The drug works about as well as other contraceptive medications, allowing just one unplanned pregnancy per year for every 100 women.

If success is measured in pushups, then Liberty Memorial Central Middle School sixth-grader Talima Harjo is making some great progress.

SATURDAY COLUMN

Like coaches, deans who don’t measure up should go By Dolph C. Simons Jr.

For the past several months, one of the biggest university-related stories around the country has been the firing and hiring of football coaches. High-priced coaches have been fired for not producing anticipated win-loss records, and, in most cases, the universities have had to buy out the remaining years on the coaches’ contracts, frequently totalling in the millions of dollars. As painful as this might be, those calling the shots thought it was in the best interests of the schools to make a quick change. Then the search begins for replacements, again, costing the school millions of dollars to lure a new coach and also to buy a new assistant coaching staff. It’s big business in every sense, but university chancellors and presidents, along with their governing boards, apparently believe it is essential to have winning programs in major sports to attract ticket buyers and generate enthusiasm among alumni, friends and fiscal contributors.

It appears there may be the beginning of a similar line of thinking relative to the academic side of universities. The Oregon State Board of Higher Education didn’t wait around or procrastinate before deciding recently to fire the president at the University of Oregon, former Kansas University Provost Richard Lariviere. If college football coaches and basketball coaches are fired rather routinely for not measuring up, and if college presidents and chancellors can be fired for not measuring up, is there any reason not to believe the public is going to become more interested in asking why college deans are not fired more often? University alumni, students and parents of students, along with taxpayers who are footing a large share of the cost of running a university have every reason to expect deans of schools to measure up. A good dean can work wonders for a school or department, while a lazy, ineffective dean, who does not have the respect of fellow faculty members, students and alumni can inflict con-

siderable damage on a university. A good dean can make a major difference in improving morale within the faculty and enthusiasm among students, play a significant role in attracting superior students and faculty and raise far more money for the school and university.

COMMENTARY A case in point is the current situation at the KU School of Medicine with Barbara Atkinson, who serves as executive vice chancellor as well as executive dean. A recent evaluation of Atkinson by her faculty is reported to be “shockingly bad.” The morale among faculty is bad. Atkinson and KU Chancellor Bernadette GrayLittle have worked out a timetable in which Atkinson will vacate her dean’s position at some unspecified date and then remain as vice chancellor for another two years. It is not a good situation. In fact, it is bad and growing worse. And the chancellor and those serving

on the Kansas Board of Regents also look bad because they apparently do not have the courage to call for an immediate change. It would be interesting to know whether all of the regents have read the results of the faculty assessment of Atkinson. The two-year delay in Atkinson’s departure is likely to result in growing damage to the school. She has lost the respect of a high percentage of staff. Likewise, respect for the chancellor and regents has been damaged in the eyes of many, not just those at the medical school, because of their apparent blindness to what is going on. Or if they do know how serious the matter is, why don’t they have the courage to make the necessary changes? If a coach can be bought out, why can’t a dean be bought out? Under the deal with Gray-Little (by the way, it is interesting to know who Atkinson reports to; it seems the only person she reports to is the chancellor), Atkinson has two more years in office. She is the highestpaid state employee, making between $500,000 and $600,000.

Again, if a coach’s contract can be bought out, why not a dean or vice chancellor or even a chancellor or president, as was the case with Lariviere? If the individual has tenure, he or she can be kept on as a teacher, as was former KU School of Business dean Bill Fuerst. Atkinson’s salary is low compared with what it costs to buy out a coach’s contract. Regardless of the money, something needs to be done and done quickly. The idea of leaving Atkinson, who has lost the respect of her faculty, on the job as a lame duck for two more years is bad and dangerous for the school. Also, based on her style of management, she could be expected to try to “get even” with those who have been critical of her leadership. The action, or inaction, of the chancellor and Board of Regents relative to the KU medical school mess will send a clear message to a broad spectrum of faculty, students, alumni, friends and other interested parties about the chancellor’s and board’s vision and commitment to excellence.

weaving through cones, doing pushups and an abdominal exercise that required students to lift their legs in the air. The sessions usually begin with a healthy snack and end with a fun game or relay. Guiding the students through the workout are a group of personal trainers from Next Level. “We want to focus on progression, getting better every week,” trainer Matt Scanlon said. One of the areas where trainers see improvement is the attitude of the students, who tend to stop complaining about the workouts after the first couple of weeks.

“We get them to buy into it. And they see improvement and feel better about themselves as they improve,” Scanlon said. Before they can join, the students have to sign a contract saying they will come twice a week dressed to work out, do their best and encourage others. “And for the most part, they have absolutely done that,” Loomis said. Loomis stresses the program isn’t geared toward athletes, although many of them are in the program. It’s clear from a look around the gym that the students participating come in all shapes, sizes and athletic abilities. “It’s for kids to understand what being fit is,” Loomis said. Throughout the year, students raise money to fund the

program, which cost about $6,400 this year. Since the program started in 2009, it has grown in popularity, with the number of participants nearly doubling to 40 or 50. Sixth-grader Travis Barfield keeps coming back because it’s fun, even the most grueling parts like pushing five of his classmates on a mat. “I felt stronger,” Barfield said. “I could run faster, and I could do everything better than what I could do when I first started.” Stubblefield hopes those lessons will have staying power. “It’s providing them with lifelong skills and habits that will benefit them for the rest of their life,” she said.

Officers with Kansas University police, Lawrence police, the Kansas Department of Revenue’s Alcoholic Beverage Control, and Douglas County Sheriff’s Office participated in the patrol as part of the Fake ID 101 task force. Sixteen people were ticketed for being a minor in possession of alcohol, and 10 people were cited on charges of possessing a fake ID. Some people were cited for more than one offense. The patrol coincided with the night before Stop Day on the KU campus. ABC officers also issued administrative citations at seven

establishments — Wilde’s Chateau, Saints Pub and Patio, The Hawk, Phoggy Dog Bar and Grill, Tonic, Barrel House and Abe and Jake’s Landing — alleging they allowed minors to possess alcohol. Officers with the task force also cited 29 people the night of Dec. 1 and 30 people the night of Dec. 3. ABC officers issued administrative citations Dec. 1 to The Bottleneck, two El Mezcal restaurants, The Wheel, Cadillac Ranch, Abe and Jake’s Landing and Tonic, accusing staff members of allowing minors to possess alcohol and Phoggy Dog for allowing an alleged drinking game. The Hawk, Tonic and Barrel House all received ABC administrative citations Dec. 3 for allegations that minors possessed alcohol.

Holiday Pittie Party! All this month, the Lawrence Humane Society will waive all adoption fees for wonderful bully breeds waiting on a forever home. Every adoption includes spay/neuter, microchip, collar, tag, and vaccinations. Although the adoption fee is waived, adoption requirements must be met. These beautiful dogs are eager to “go home for the holidays.” Common stereotypes have been unfair to these breeds, like the American Staffordshire Terrier and American Bull Terrier -- they are highly intelligent, extremely loyal, and form close bonds with humans. With proper socialization, bully breeds get along very well with other dogs and cats in home environments. Their handsome, soft, short coat is not prone to shedding. They also make excellent jogging partners! All bully breed pets at the Lawrence Humane Society have completed special training by professionals experienced with bully breeds. Plus, each adoption includes 5 weeks of training for new owners at Pit Bull E.D.U. at no cost.

Late-night shooting suspect arrested Lawrence police arrested a 28-year-old Lawrence man early Friday who was suspected of firing shots in the parking lot of a bar. Sgt. Matt Sarna, a police spokesman, said officers were called at 2:35 a.m. Friday to Taste Lounge, Bar and Grill, 804 W. 24th St., after a report of multiple shots being fired from a vehicle in the parking lot. Two men were believed to be inside the vehicle. According to police scanner traffic early Friday, there was a pursuit of the vehicle west on 23rd Street, and the suspect was driving at speeds reaching 80 mph. Sarna said officers then located the vehicle near Bob Billings Parkway and Iowa Street. Police arrested the 28-yearold man on suspicion of

aggravated assault, criminal possession and discharge of a firearm and criminal damage to property. Douglas County prosecutors on Friday did not make a decision about filing formal charges. The Journal-World generally does not identify suspects unless they are formally charged. He was expected to appear before a judge today to set bond on the case. According to Kansas Department of Corrections records, the man is on parole for a 2007 Douglas County drug possession case. Police did not locate the second alleged suspect, but they recovered a weapon from the vehicle, Sarna said. No injuries were reported. Earlier this year, two Leavenworth men were charged after shots were fired Oct. 9 outside Taste.

The director of the Wyandotte health department, Joe Connor, said the process will help provide direction on where to focus funding and a chance to promote the goals of public health. “We saw real gaps and real needs,” he said of Wyandotte County’s experience. — Reporter Christine Metz can be reached at 832-6352.

My “class clown” personality is so much fun. With a soft tan coat marked with white (including all four feet!), I’m a cute 1-year-old American Staffordshire Terrier. My big heart makes up for my small size (35 pounds) and makes me a great family dog. And did I mention I’m smart? If you can teach me some new tricks, I’m ready to learn! I’m in foster care right now, so please call ahead to schedule a time to visit me.

Everyone says I’m “easy on the eyes,” and please come see for yourself. Whether it’s my handsome face, my physique, or my beautiful brindle coat, I’m a sophisticated 2-year-old American Staffordshire Terrier, a shade over 50 pounds, and ready to learn from an experienced owner. Cats, other dogs, and even kids aren’t really my thing. Loyalty and one-on-one love is what this Beau is all about. That’s what I can give, and you know what, that’s a heck of a deal.

This girl is looking for a job. A 1-yearold American Staffordshire Terrier and just over 60 pounds, I’m always ready to go to work. With my high energy, staying busy is a must, and, as a bonus, I’m a quick learner. I need someone as smart as I am, so experienced owners are preferred. But I like kids too, and I get along with other dogs. Need some “home improvement” during the holidays? I’m perfect for the job!

My up-down ears make everyone smile! And my coat is a unique color for an American Staffordshire Terrier, and you’ll see it’s SO beautiful. At 60 pounds and full of play, I might be a bit too strong for little kids. But for everyone else wanting a good and true friend, I’m your steady gal. At 4 years old, I’ve learned responsibility, but don’t worry, I know how to show you a good time!!!

MORTICIA

If it quacks like a duck, it must be a… cat? Yep, that’s me. I think I meow, they think I quack. No matter, I’m quite the favorite around here. But I’m not a kid anymore, and at 5 to 7 years old, thoughts of home are always on my mind. I’m calm and relaxed, well mannered, and just a sweet boy to have around. “Petting time” is my best time, and when we share the love, I’m one lucky Duckie!

Now here’s a real lovely Lady, longhaired and so striking in my coat of wonderful colors – chocolate and peaches ‘n cream. Must be those choice colors that make me so sweet, if you get my meaning. Elegant describes me, but warm, friendly, and loving really tell my story. My entire 6 years I’ve been all about people, which is why I look through my window every day hoping there’s someone to love this Lady.

Some spooky eyes, huh? Don’t let them scare you away – I’m just trying to look somber, like my name, which doesn’t fit me at all. When I’m not mugging for the camera, I’m an adorable, funloving kitty, a bit laid back, and happy to share my space with other cats. If you want to see smiling eyes, just run your hand over my beautiful silky coat. Ah, that’s smooth, that’s sweet, that’s special – that’s me!

EMERGENCY PERSONNEL PUT A MAN INTO A LIFESTAR HELICOPTER Friday afternoon near Lyon Park in North Lawrence. Division Chief Eve Tolefree of Lawrence-Douglas County Fire Medical said the man was taken to Kansas University Hospital in Kansas City, Kan. He was injured about 3:15 p.m. while working for a private company, she said. The man’s injuries were not life-threatening, Tolefree said.

School board to receive report on standards-based grading By Mark Fagan mfagan@ljworld.com

Looks like it’s time for members of the Lawrence school board to determine what, if any, new direction to take regarding the use of standards-based grading for sixth-graders. Board members are scheduled to receive a report Monday night from Rick Doll, superintendent of the Lawrence school district, regarding two recent public forums addressing the issue. Kim Bodensteiner, the district’s chief academic officer, recommends in a written report of her own that administrators provide the board and the public a report by the end of the year outlining “progress” on a list of 13 “action steps.” The goal, Doll said Friday, would be “to make improvements to standards-based grading.” Steps would include meetings, focus groups and other efforts involving teachers, district committees, school site councils, training sessions and research plans related to use of such grades for sixth-graders. Workshops in August and September, for example, would help guide parents

through the district’s Skyward computer system so that parents could see how educators would be entering data regarding students’ progress on standards and skills. The district has been using standardsbased grades SCHOOLS in elementary schools since 2003. This year such grades moved up with sixthgraders into middle schools, the first time they have been employed outside an elementary setting. Sixth-graders continue to receive standards-based grades — S, M, T and E marks, based on their performance related to state academic standards and specific learner behaviors — while also receiving typical letter grades of A, B, C, D or F in specific subjects. Some parents and teachers have objected to standardsbased grades being used in middle schools, saying that teachers lack time and training for their use, students lose motivation to strive for excellence, and parents lack the ability to properly tracks students’ work and assist

them in their learning. Mark Bradford, board president, has indicated board members would consider issues related to the grading system this month or next. Reports from Doll and Bodensteiner offer the first opportunity for board members to discuss issues as a formal agenda item during a board meeting. Also up for approval Monday:

Spend $33,034 to replace kitchen equipment at Quail Run School.

Purchase workbooks, paper and other “consumables” for the district’s “Handwriting Without Tears” program for $32,898.

Spend $30,456 for an elevated storage system at Free State High School to help accommodate additional equipment and materials needed at the school with the arrival this year of ninth-graders. Monday’s meeting begins at 7 p.m. at district headquarters, 110 McDonald Drive. Board members intend to gather early for an executive session, set to begin at 6:15 p.m., to discuss upcoming teacher negotiations. — Schools reporter Mark Fagan can be reached at 832-7188.

This is populism so crude that it channels not Teddy Roosevelt so much as Hugo Chavez. But with high unemployment, economic stagnation and unprecedented deficits, what else can Obama say?”

Osawatomie, Kan., site of a famous 1910 Teddy Roosevelt speech, Obama laid out the case. It seems that he and his policies have nothing to do with the current state of things. Sure, presidents are ordinarily held accountable for economic growth, unemployment, national indebtedness (see Obama, above). But not this time. Responsibility, you see, lies with the rich. Or, as the philosophers of Zuccotti Park call them, the 1

percent. For Obama, these rich are the ones holding back the 99 percent. The “breathtaking greed of a few” is crushing the middle class. If only the rich paid their “fair share,” the middle class would have a chance. Otherwise, government won’t have enough funds to “invest” in education and innovation, the golden path to the sunny uplands of economic growth and opportunity. Where to begin? A country spending twice as much per capita on education as it did in 1970 with zero effect on test scores is not underinvesting in education. It’s mis-investing. As for federally directed spending on innovation — like Solyndra? Ethanol? The preposterously subsidized, flammable Chevy Volt? Our current economic distress is attributable to myriad causes: globalization, expensive high-tech medicine, a huge debt burden, a burst housing bubble largely driven

by precisely the egalitarian impulse that Obama is promoting (government aggressively pushing “affordable housing” that turned out to be disastrously unaffordable), an aging population straining the social safety net. Yes, growing inequality is a problem throughout the Western world. But Obama’s pretense that it is the root cause of this sick economy is ridiculous. As is his solution, that old perennial: selective abolition of the Bush tax cuts. As if all that ails us, all that keeps the economy from humming and the middle class from advancing, is a 4.6-point hike in marginal tax rates for the rich. This, in a country $15 trillion in debt with out-of-control entitlements systematically starving every other national need. This obsession with a sock-it-to-the-rich tax hike that, at most, would have reduced this year’s deficit from

$1.30 trillion to $1.22 trillion is the classic reflex of reactionary liberalism — anything to avoid addressing the underlying structural problems, which would require modernizing the totemic programs of the New Deal and Great Society. As for those structural problems, Obama has spent three years on signature policies that either ignore or aggravate them:

 A massive stimulus, a gigantic payoff to Democratic interest groups (such as teachers, public sector unions) that will add nearly $1 trillion to the national debt.

 A sweeping federally run reorganization of health care that (a) cost Congress a year, (b) created an entirely new entitlement in a nation hemorrhaging from unsustainable entitlements, (c) introduced new levels of uncertainty into an already stagnant economy.

 High-handed regulation,

Writing more important than ever

best exemplified by Obama’s failed cap-and-trade legislation, promptly followed by an EPA trying to impose the same conventional-energykilling agenda by administrative means. Moreover, on the one issue that already enjoys a bipartisan consensus — the need for fundamental reform of a corrosive, corrupted tax code that misdirects capital and promotes unfairness — Obama did nothing, ignoring the recommendations of several bipartisan commissions, including his own. In Kansas, Obama lamented that millions “are now forced to take their children to food banks.” You have to admire the audacity. That’s the kind of damning observation the opposition brings up when you’ve been in office three years. Yet Obama summoned it to make the case for his re-election! Why? Because, you see, he bears no responsibility for the current economic distress. It’s the rich. And, like Horatius at the bridge, Obama stands with the American masses against the soulless plutocrats. This is populism so crude that it channels not Teddy Roosevelt so much as Hugo Chavez. But with high unemployment, economic stagnation and unprecedented deficits, what else can Obama say? He can’t run on stewardship. He can’t run on policy. His signature initiatives — the stimulus, Obamacare and the failed cap-and-trade — will go unmentioned in his campaign ads. Indeed, they will be the stuff of Republican ads. What’s left? Class resentment. Got a better idea? — Charles Krauthammer is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.

Regents name Texas man as Emporia State president EMPORIA (AP) — A top Texas Tech University administrator with experience working in student affairs and enrollment was chosen Friday by the Kansas Board of Regents as the new president of Emporia State University. The board announced the selection of Michael Shonrock following a special meeting. He was chosen from among four finalists for the post. Regents Chairman Ed McKechnie said Shonrock would start Jan. 3 and earn $240,000 a year. McKechnie said Shonrock’s experience at both regional colleges and most recently at a Big 12 university were factors in his selection. “His passion and connection with students is a real positive,” McKechnie said. “It’s a good day.” Shonrock has been in administration at Texas Tech since 1990, most recently as senior vice president and associate professor of educational psychology and leadership. At Emporia State, he will succeed Michael Lane, who

resigned in May, six months after being interviewed for the presidency of a private university in Illinois. Shonrock, a Chicago native, was responsible for enrollment management and student affairs at Texas Tech. “The board has absolute confidence in the faculty at Emporia. What we wanted was someone to focus on the administrative side of the house,” said McKechnie, who knew Shonrock when the chairman was a student at Pittsburg State. McKechnie said Shonrock would be asked to focus on building Emporia’s enrollment, enhance its business, teacher and library education programs and strengthen community relationships. Shonrock holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Western Illinois University and a doctorate from Kansas University. He also earned an advanced degree in education from Pittsburg State. He said in a statement that accepting the position was “coming home” for him and his wife, Karen.

Tom Keegan tkeegan@ljworld.com

Next job for Weis: find QB The question came from across the table, from a friend who knows how to get to the heart of the matter. “Did you like him?” he asked, meaning Charlie Weis, knowing I had just attended his introductory news conference. It’s a coach’s job to make everybody like him when he’s saying hello. And it’s my job to see through staged news conferences, almost look for reasons not to like the star of the show, in case he’s a phony. My response: “I’ve known a lot of Jersey guys. He struck me as the kind of Jersey guy I’ll like.” By that, I meant he’s direct, in charge, funny, confident, not afraid to let you know when you’re annoying him, and above all, sarcastic. You understand why some others might not like him, but you like him. That’s the first impression he made. He’s a splashy hire, all right, but he didn’t come across, even a little bit, as a splashy guy. As New England Patriots offensive coordinator, Weis was the first NFL tutor to the greatest quarterback of all-time, Tom Brady. When I asked Weis for qualities in Brady that we don’t see on TV on Sunday, he supplied objective and subjective samples, in that order, of the football qualities of a man he refers to as “Tommy,” a man he said is “like family to us.” Weis said he had to go back to Dan Marino to remember a quarterback not gifted with quick feet “be so smooth in the pocket.” “His feet are so still,” Weis said. “There are times he just stands there. There are people all around. He just stands there. And there are times he has to move a little to the left, a little to the right or go back or go forward, he does it, finds a window and throws the ball. I’ve never seen anyone so calm playing the quarterback position. Now, you’re going to watch him play, and you’re going to see what I’m talking about.” Then Weis referred to the indefinable quality possessed by all great ones in all sports. “OK, now subjectively, there are certain people who have it, and I can’t tell you what ‘it’ is, he has it. If you’re around him, whatever ‘it’ is, you’d know it, because that’s what ‘it’ is,” Weis said. It’s not something that can be spotted in a conversation, so KU’s new football coach looks to learn the intangibles of a quarterback prospect in other ways. “You can go into it the school and watch what everyone thinks about him,” Weis said. “See, when I go into a school, I like to talk to people other than coaches. ’Cause the coaches are always going to say how great the kid is. I like talking to the custodians. I like talking to the lunch lady. I like talking to the police guy who works in the school, ’cause they’re the ones who will tell you what the kids are really like. I mean, you can watch on tape to see whether he can play. You like to see how the kid is viewed by his peers in view of leadership and as long as you have a quarterback who’s viewed as a leader, you have a good chance.” It’s easy to see Weis talking to the custodian, the security enforcer at a school. He looks and talks more like those guys than like the splashy hire. Weis doesn’t need to return to Notre Dame to ask anybody about the quarterback he covets. He’s been there, done

KU introduces ‘old ball coach’ Weis to fix, fire-up program By Matt Tait

MORE COVERAGE

mtait@ljworld.com

Friday evening, in Mrkonic Auditorium at Kansas University’s Anderson Family Football Complex, new KU football coach Charlie Weis was asked a variety of questions on topics ranging from his time at Notre Dame and in the huddle with Tom Brady in the NFL, to why he came to Kansas or even had interest in becoming a head coach again. While nearly all of Weis’ answers both charmed and cut to the chase, one best summed up the spirit with which KU’s 37th head football coach carried himself during his introductory news conference. With his wife, Maura, and son Charlie Jr., sitting in front of him in the first row, Weis, 55, was asked what area of the KU program would be his top priority. “The record,” he said. “That’s what I’m here to fix. Now, there’s a lot of things that go into doing that, but who wants to be 2-10?

They won two too many as far as I’m concerned. It could’ve been a little bit easier.” And with that, the Charlie Weis Era at Kansas was under way. Part charming, part comedy show, part serious business, Weis spoke for nearly 45 minutes to a packed house that included several current KU players and a throng of media members. While the community surely will learn more about the man who owns

four Super Bowl rings and spent five seasons as the head coach at Notre Dame, Weis offered up a sizable chunk of what he’s about during his first appearance as a Jayhawk. The bulk of his message focused on family — both his own and that which he hopes to create within the walls of the KU football complex — but Weis also made sure to emphasize that he understood what was most important around here. “The University of Kansas this year was 2-10,” he said. “The other major school in the state is Kansas State, who was 10-2. I only have

Jayhawks ready for battle with No. 2 Buckeyes By Gary Bedore gbedore@ljworld.com

Kansas University’s basketball players and 16,300 crazed fans hope the Jayhawks’ third appearance against a Top-10 team will be the charm today. The No. 13-ranked Jayhawks (6-2), who have lost to No. 1 Kentucky and No. 7 Duke, take on No. 2 Ohio State (8-0) in a 2:15 p.m. nonconference showdown in Allen Fieldhouse. “Playing Kentucky was an eye-opening experience in our second game of the season. Even though we tried real hard, they were too much for us in the second half,” KU coach Bill Self said, referring to a 75-65 loss to the Wildcats on Nov. 15 in New York. “We learned from it. We got better. “Playing Duke ... we definitely knocked on the door but Please see KEEGAN, page 4B couldn’t close,” he added of a 68-

one question to ask: Why? Why is the University of Kansas 2-10, and why is Kansas State 10-2? I don’t have that answer, but that is what I am here for... That is not acceptable in any way, shape or form.” For at least the next five years, Weis will work to close the gap between KU and Bill Snyder’s program in Manhattan. Doing so figures to come as a result of all the things that made Weis a successful NFL assistant for 16 years, led him to the head coach’s office at Notre Dame from 2005-09 and led to running the offense at the University of Florida this past season. “I set out to find the best, and I found Charlie Weis,” said KU athletic director Sheahon Zenger during his opening statement. “Coach Weis has tremendous experience and success at the highest levels of the NFL and collegiate football. He has an incredible football mind. He’s disciplined, principled and a tireless Please see WEIS, page 4B

UCLA sends Nelson packing LOS ANGELES (AP) — Reeves Nelson was dismissed from the UCLA basketball team Friday after twice having been suspended for insubordinate behavior this season. Coach Ben Howland said he told Nelson in a morning meeting. The 20-year-old junior forward from Modesto, Calif., was serving his second suspension.

“Reeves did not want to leave. He’s disappointed,� Howland said in a teleconference from Anaheim, where the Bruins practiced ahead of today’s game against Pennsylvania at Honda Center. “But he also understands that this is the final decision. This is it. We are moving forward without him.� Nelson was averaging 5.7 points and 4.5 rebounds for the Bruins,

who at 2-5 are off to their worst start since the 2002-03 season. Howland had kept Nelson offlimits to reporters recently.

COLLEGE BASKETBALL

NEW YORK — Criticism of the NBA’s squashing of a potential Chris Paul trade is pouring in from around the league. The New Orleans Hornets, owned by the league, had agreed to a three-team trade Thursday that would have sent their All-Star point guard to the Los Angeles Lakers. But the league killed the deal for “basketball reasons� and has denied the decision came about because of pressure on commissioner David Stern from angry owners. The angry reaction to the trade threatened to Paul overshadow what should have been a positive day around the NBA, the opening of free agency and training camps following the five-month lockout. “2day was suppose 2 be a happy day for the NBA. Practice starts but I woke up to all this mess. Summer of 2010 looks pretty normal now,� Miami’s Dwyane Wade wrote on Twitter. The Hornets would have received Lamar Odom, last year’s top sixth man, from the Lakers, as well as forward Luis Scola, shooting guard Kevin Martin, point guard Goran Dragic and a first-round draft choice from the Houston Rockets. And the Lakers’ Pau Gasol would have gone to the Rockets.

Free State hoops sweeps Free State girls 75, Shawnee Heights 38

By Benton Smith basmith@ljworld.com

TECUMSEH — At times Friday night, Free State High girls basketball coach Bryan Duncan could barely believe what he was seeing. Despite playing in just the second game of the season, the Firebirds were exceptionally sound and methodically pounded Shawnee Heights, 75-38. That was just the first part of a FSHS sweep in the Thunderbirds’ gymnasium — Free State’s boys prevailed, 56-47 — as the girls hit 31 of their 59 shot attempts, including seven from three-point range. SHHS (1-2) trailed by 15 at the half. That was before the Firebirds (2-0) put on a clinic, opening the third quarter with a 9-0 run in just 1:40, with junior Chelsea Casady scoring two transition layups and junior Kennedy Kirkpatrick draining a three and scoring another fast-break basket. Duncan was amazed with the execution. “I’m almost speechless, to be honest, for this early in the year,” the coach said, adding that at times he looked over to his assistant coaches and just said, “Wow.” By the end of the third quarter, FSHS had extended its lead to 30, with the help of 12 points from Casady, who said it felt good to win in such convincing fashion

CAMERON DABNEY (14) RUNS INTO TIGHT DEFENSE during Friday night’s game against Shawnee Heights in Tecumseh. The FSHS boys won, 56-47. with the whole team working in unison. “The third quarter was fun,” she said, “just because our mentality going into the second half is: We have to win the third quarter.” Casady, who finished with 18 points, and Kirkpatrick, 19, led the Free State attack, but Jackie Garcia, Lynn Robinson, Scout Wiebe, A’Liyah Rogers, Abbey Casady, Summer Frantz, Courtney Parker and Milly Shade (who scored nine fourth-quarter points) all made at least one basket.

were guarding. That was disappointing.” Shawnee Heights (1-2) couldn’t maintain its early lead for long, though. The Firebirds chipped away at a six-point hole entering the second quarter with baskets from senior Gabe Patterson and junior Kyle McFarland before senior Tyler Self drilled a three from the left corner to put Free State ahead, 19-18. The Thunderbirds regained a one-point advantage before FSHS senior Cameron Dabney later buried a jumper to put FSHS ahead for good. Dabney came off the bench and scored 14 points to go with four rebounds, but Law was more impressed with the guard’s defense. Beginning at 5:30 tonight, both Free State teams will play host to Lansing.

Free State boys 56, Shawnee Heights 47 Although the Free State boys also picked up a road win, coach Chuck Law wasn’t about to give the nine-point victory a glowing review, especially given the game’s start and finish.

LHS girls fall, 35-34 J-W Staff Reports

Lawrence High nearly rallied from an eight-point, fourth-quarter deficit, but the Lions fell short Friday night in a 35-34 girls basketball loss to Kansas City (Mo.) St. Teresa’s. “Our defense allowed us to stay in the game,” LHS coach Nick Wood said. “We just didn’t make enough shots to allow us to win.”

LHS boys roll into title game cthibodeaux@ljworld.com

STILWELL — Lawrence High can finally go into the final day of the Blue Valley Shootout without being in a consolation game. After defeating the tournament’s home team, Blue Valley High, 51-34, LHS boys basketball earned a spot to play for the championship tonight. That will make it three meaningful games in three days for the Lions. “I keep telling them if you’re 16, 17, 18 years old, you can’t get tired,” coach Mike Lewis said. “I think we’ll be ready to go.” The Lions (3-0) have made a drastic turnaround from a season ago, and with two solid victories in a row, the team is showing that it’s no fluke. Junior Shane Willoughby said the evolution started in the offseason. “It starts with practice,” he said. “There’s so much energy, and everybody gets everybody else better. We’ve got a great senior class leading us.” LHS started the game energetically, scoring nine points on 4-for-4 shooting. The Lions never trailed. Lewis said the team had good balance scoring in the quarters — 13, 11, 10 and 17 — and the defense didn’t have many lapses. The Tigers scored on consecutive goals when the Lions had three turnovers in a row. But senior Logan Henrichs stopped any sort of momentum with a three-point play near the end of the third

quarter that pushed the lead back to 11. Henrichs had a big night with a game-high 18 points, eight in the fourth quarter alone. The home crowd wasn’t much of a hindrance for the Lions. Because they started the game so well, there was never much of an opportunity to give the fans anything to cheer about. The small gathering LHS brought along was at least as vocal. Lewis found the dynamic between the crowds amusing. “It was fun,” he said. “I tell these guys they’re lucky to be high school basketball players.” LHS will have potentially its toughest task of the season at 6 tonight when it plays Olathe Northwest in the title game. The players don’t need to have much information about the Ravens to know how big the game is. “I know they’ve got some big names going to some big schools,” Willoughby said. “We’ll play them like any other team, play hard like we have been all year and hopefully stay undefeated,” added senior Anthony Buffalomeat.

Players welcome Weis’ idea of discipline By Jesse Newell jnewell@ljworld.com

There will be puke buckets. Kansas offensive tackle Tanner Hawkinson didn’t remember everything from Friday morning’s team meeting with new football coach Charlie Weis, but he did recall that detail, which was promised during winter conditioning. “He said it as a joke,” Hawkinson said with a smile, “but I’m pretty sure it wasn’t a joke.” Hawkinson said a few players laughed about it. Others knew not to. “I’m not surprised that’s what’s going to be going on,” Hawkinson said. “That’s how you build your program.”

After Weis’ introductory news conference Friday, KU football players seemed open to the new coach’s ideas and stricter style of coaching. “He made it pretty clear to us that things were going to be tough,” KU outside linebacker Toben Opurum said. “It’s not going to be easy, and I fully expected that. You can’t go from 2-10 to being champions easily.” In a subtle way, both Hawkinson and Opurum indicated that KU’s football program would benefit from Weis’ arrival. Hawkinson was especially happy to hear Weis talk about discipline during his meeting with the team. “I feel like we needed a little bit of change around here,” Hawkinson said. “Kind

of like Dr. (Sheahon) Zenger and coach Weis were talking about, there’s some little things here and there discipline-wise. There was definitely a need for someone to put the foot down and just kind of say, ‘Hey, this is the way we’re going to do things.’” Opurum said Weis’ strong record of graduating players at Notre Dame also stood out as a positive. “It just helps a lot, know-

ing you have a coach who really cares about your academics,” Opurum said. “To have every student-athlete come through your door graduate, I feel like that’s really impressive. And a lot of guys here — to be honest — a lot of guys are struggling right now. And I feel like to have your head coach kind of on your back about that, it’ll help a lot.” Coincidentally, Opurum was recruited by Notre Dame in high school while Weis was the head coach there. The Richardson, Texas, native ended up selecting KU, but not before taking a campus visit to South Bend, Ind. “He’s the same guy as I met a couple years ago,” Opurum said of Weis. “He’s

one name. Reggie Mitchell, who coached running backs and served as KU’s recruiting coordinator under former coach Turner Gill, will be retained. The rest — along with Weis’ contract, which Zenger said would pay around $2.5 million per year for five years — will be finalized in the next few days. Weis said he planned to talk to all of KU’s current assistants before finalizing his staff, and emphasized that, of all the valuable lessons he learned from his time at Notre Dame, the importance of one’s coaching staff was paramount. “I think chemistry on the coaching staff is a critical fac-

tor and sometimes very much underrated,” he said. “I could give you a conga line of some of the top coaches that want in here, but the question is, are they going to fit? Are they going to work together? Can they work with me? Can they work with each other?” Weis prides himself on being honest. Several KU players, who met with Weis for the first time earlier in the day and spoke with reporters after the news conference, said their new coach told them to expect brutal honesty at all times. Weis flashed a little of that on Friday, too, when talking about today’s men’s basketball game dur-

ing which he’ll be introduced to the crowd at halftime. “I sat in the rafters for the KU-Kansas State basketball game last year, thank you very much,” he said. “I’ve been promised my seats will be better tomorrow.” Not all of Weis’ honest moments included a comedian’s flare. “I am not the greatest coach in the world,” he said. “I am just an old ball coach. I was groomed under Bill Parcells and Bill Belichick, and the way I figure it is, they are both going to the Hall of Fame, so why should I try and reinvent the wheel? Why not copycat what they do?”

For Zenger, still in his first year as KU’s AD, hiring Weis was not about delivering a shot heard ‘round the world. He called the extra attention KU received during the past couple of days “icing on the cake,” but emphasized that bringing in a man with Weis’ reputation, education and determination showed the world that Kansas had made a commitment to football. “The chancellor and I didn’t feel like we needed a jump start,” Zenger said. “We believed that we needed a power surge. That power surge is coach Weis.” If Weis has it his way, that surge will ignite Kansas football for years to come. “We are going to be here at the University of Kansas until I am done coaching,” Weis said. “And then I am going to be here with my wife and my daughter, while my son tries the trials and tribulations of coaching. I have said this to both the chancellor and Dr. Zenger, utopia is me walking away from here a bunch of years from now, you’re getting rid of one Charlie Weis and hiring another one a lot cheaper.”

shirted one year under Brian Kelly and was benched the next. He’s graduating this month and can transfer and be eligible immediately. Look for Crist in Allen Fieldhouse today. Weis can’t talk about him by name. He can’t tell everybody in Allen Fieldhouse that when a 6-4 young man pins a bear hug on him, that’s a sign to break

into chants of “We want Dayne! We want Dayne! We want Dayne!” Crist, a one-year player, would be a nice start. If Weis does a better job of assembling a staff than he did at Notre Dame and treats the coaches under him with respect, he could be well on his way to justifying the over-the-top enthusiasm al-

ready expressed by so many KU supporters. “He’s created so much of a buzz and excitement; I think we’re going to have 25,000 at the spring game,” said Bernie Kish, who in order to move to Lawrence, where he teaches at KU, left his 10-year post as head of the College Football Hall of Fame in South Bend, Ind., a

few months after Weis came to town. Weis has a tough challenge on his hands. The offseason workouts will run off some players who aren’t up to it, and the ones who stay on board will give Weis a head-start on evaluating his team. He’ll already know the identity of the tough guys.

We know it’s going to be a tremendous challenge for us. The unfortunate thing is we have a lot of guys who haven’t been in it yet. It will be good for them as well.” A key match-up figures to be KU junior forward Thomas Robinson (6-10, 237) vs. sophomore standout Sullinger (6-9, 265). “To be honest, I don’t think we’re going to check (guard) each other,” Robinson said. “If we do, it’ll be what everybody expects, but unless one of the other bigs gets in foul trouble ... then we’ll check each other. Where it gets mixed up is Jeff (Withey, 7-footer) is way taller than Sullinger ... I’m not the coach. That’s not my job. I just go check who I’ve got to check. I want to check him, but it’s up to coach.” Self pinpointed several intriguing match-ups. “On paper you’d say it could be a great individual match-up with Sullinger and Robinson, and on paper you could say (Tyshawn) Taylor’s going to have an unbelievable challenge with Craft,” Self said. “You can say (Travis) Releford guards Buford. One guy who can mess you up is (Deshaun) Thomas because he’s a stretch 4-man. Now how do you guard the post with a stretch 4-man? I look forward to Kansas playing Ohio State more so than individual match-ups.” Ohio State went with a 7-man rotation against Duke; KU also has been going just seven or eight deep. “I don’t think it will be too much of a factor. Long Beach was the same way,” Teahan said of KU using six players the bulk of the game. Justin Wesley played nine minutes and Kevin Young six in KU’s

88-80 win over the 49ers on Tuesday. Asked specifically about frosh point guard Naadir Tharpe’s minutes, Self said: “It’s important for us to get to the point guys can play minutes and add something. That would be important.” KU’s Robinson believes it’ll take a top performance to defeat the Big Ten’s best team. “They have a great scorer, they have a point guard that plays defense and shuts down the opposing team’s best guard, they have good shooters and they have great role players. They’re a great team all around; at the same time, I feel comfortable with my team, and we will come out and do what we have to do,” Robinson said.

Sullinger’s status: Player of the Year candidate Sullinger (back spasms) has been limited at practice this week. Matta has said his status won’t be known until today. Sullinger’s dad, Satch, told the Columbus Dispatch the spasms were caused by plantar fasciitis in his son’s right foot. The condition “kind of messed up his gait a little bit,” Satch Sullinger told the paper. Team doctors do not think fasciitis caused the spasms, the team’s athletic trainer, Vince O’Brien, told the paper. On Tuesday, Sullinger wrote on his Twitter account that he was “taking a final with back spasms.”

worker. We believe he is the right coach at the right time to put Kansas in a position to raise the bar and compete in the Big 12 Conference.” According to Weis, who opened Friday’s news conference by cracking a joke about the bad left hip he plans to have replaced during the next few weeks, the work will begin immediately. “The first thing we are going to have to do is put these players through a grueling offseason to change their mentality,” Weis said. “It is not going to be pleasant around here in the spring time. There are not many things I can promise, but I can promise you that. I have already told them ‘to enjoy your holidays and have fun, because when you get to the middle of January, it is not going to be very pleasant.’” As for Weis’ to-do list, it begins with assembling a coaching staff. Weis said 80to-90 percent of his staff was in place, but confirmed only

to play very well to put ourselves in a good position to have a good shot to win late,” Self said. KU senior Conner Teahan tuned into the Buckeyes’ dismantling of Duke. “I always watch to say, ‘Let’s see how they do against Duke,’” Teahan said, “at the same time, that’s why you play the game. It doesn’t have anything to do with who beats this person or who won or whatnot. I’m sure there’s a lot of people VCU lost to that we would have beaten last year; Northern Iowa the same the year before that,” he added, referring to foes that beat KU in the NCAAs. “Each game is different. You have to have that mindset going into each one.” OSU is the highest-ranked team to come to Allen since No. 1 Arizona defeated No. 6 KU, 91-74, on Jan. 25, 2003. In other words, the building will be rocking. “I’ve always said you learn a lot about your guys when you are on the road, and the other team makes a 6-0 run. Do they have fire in their eyes or tears in their eyes?” said Ohio State coach Thad Matta. “I think going into the environment we’re going to go into at Kansas will be a great challenge for us. Our guys know college basketball. That’s the beauty of today’s modern technology. I think from a standpoint of our guys, we’ve been in some great environments. Obviously Kansas may be the best there is. As a player, that’s kind of what you live for.

straight-forward. He’s completely honest. He’ll tell you himself: He’ll probably never lie to you.” During Weis’ meeting with KU’s players Friday, he started to get to know everyone while also setting the bar for his expectations. “If there’s change, it means obviously something isn’t going right,” Opurum said. “So obviously, winning five games in the last two years is not something that anyone wants to do. It’s not something I wanted to do while I’ve been here.” That lack of success is the reason that he isn’t fearing the hard work that’s coming. Or the promise of puke buckets. “It’s funny,” Opurum said, “until it actually becomes reality.”

Coach ‘recruited’ Zenger By Tom Keegan tkeegan@ljworld.com

Kansas University athletic director Sheahon Zenger said that Mike Leach let him know before he brought his list of 12-to-15 candidates to Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little that Leach had found a university (Washington State) he felt would fit him better. Gray-Little, Zenger said, did not block Leach from being considered. Zenger said had Leach not told him he was more interested in going to Washington State, he would have been on his list. “No, we didn’t,” Zenger said when asked if he and Leach talked about his lawsuits. “I didn’t have to ask that question. That’s something we talked about a year ago, his situation, but again, that’s personal.” Weis was the last coach Zenger talked to, and he said after meeting Florida’s offensive coordinator he was convinced he would be an excellent recruiter. “He recruited me,” Zenger said. “He’s very engaging.” Zenger said he talked to “five-to-10 people” about Weis, including calls made to those who worked with him at Notre Dame. Zenger said he called Florida coach Will Muschamp at about 2 a.m. Thursday and left a message letting him know he would like to talk to Weis. Hours later, Muschamp returned the call and granted permission. Zenger’s next call was to Weis, who was not surprised because some of those Zenger had called about him had let Weis know the Kansas AD was asking about him. The AD and his new coach met at Weis’ home in Ocala, Fla., Thursday and flew to New Jersey because, Zenger said, “That’s where the chancellor was.” Zenger said Weis appealed to him because of his personality, his successful history with quarterbacks and, “the discipline, the attention to detail, the work ethic. It’s that and his family. From what I’ve heard, he gets here at about 4:30 in the morning. I’d like to visit with him for coffee once in a while.” — Sports editor Tom Keegan can be reached at 832-7147

KU guard Keena Mays to transfer J-W Staff Reports

Kansas University women’s basketball player Keena Mays will transfer from the school at the end of the fall semester, according to head coach Bonnie Henrickson on Friday. “Keena expressed to me her wish to move closer to home,” Henrickson said in a statement released by KU. “Kansas has been a great experience that I will never forget,” Mays said in the statement. “Despite my memorable time here, I would like to be closer to my family and have decided to leave KU.” Mays Mays, a sophomore from Arlington, Texas, started her first game of the season Thursday night, scoring a team-high 17 points to lead the Jayhawks over Wisconsin at Allen Fieldhouse. She had a career-high 21 points in KU’s previous game against Alabama. During her 42 games at KU, Mays averaged 7.9 points and 3.0 rebounds. KU will host UMKC on Dec. 17.

Does December change the demographics of your congregation? ——————

Our worship numbers rise; our demographics remain the same The Rev. Maria Campbell, pastor, Central United Methodist Church, 1501 Mass.: The Christian season of Advent is celebrated during the month preceding Christmas. Advent means “coming.” It’s the time of year when we remember the coming of Jesus Christ over 2,000 years ago. It is also the time we celebrate the return of Jesus in the future. So we prepare ourselves spiritually through prayer and study to receive Christ anew into our lives. We also prepare as a faith community to receive guests who come for the “holy days” of Christmas. For many, the season is a yearly reminder of the wonder of God’s love and they return to worship and events. We rejoice when members return to join in

the celebrations. As a church, it is a great time to extend hospitality to those who come for the first time seeking community and to fill a spiritual hunger. Our worship numbers rise during this period but our demographics remain relatively the same. We are a diverse congregation with a racial, ethnic, socioeconomic Campbell and lifestage mix. Our general mix of people of all ages and races remains the same. What does change is the percentage of members to non-members in worship. This gives us the opportu-

nity to demonstrate who we are as a faith community but also to be mindful of the amount of “church speak” we do. As with any organization, there are certain terms and phrases which are used that are unique to us. We intentionally remember that these might make a guest feel like an outsider. It is helpful for us to focus on the commandment to spread the good news and we can only do that if we are speaking in the language of our local community. If not, we sound more like a secret society than people who want others to share the joy we’ve found. We strive to open our doors joyously to all who seek to know the God who comes. — Send email to Maria Campbell at cumcpastor@sunflower.com.

Send your questions about faith and spiritual issues for our religion columnists to religion@ ljworld.com.

Extreme weather makes it difficult, but the faithful find ways Rod Hinkle, pastor, North Lawrence Christian Church, 647 Elm St.: Regardless of age, our people enjoy exalting the Lord Jesus Christ who came humbly among us. Children delight in the Christmas event, the humble birth of God’s son to a virgin in Bethlehem of Judea. They dramatize the story for adults, warming the hearts of people of all ages. Extreme weather makes it more difficult for everyone to gather to worship, but the faithful find ways of coming. The frail among us sometimes must stay at home and on occasion a service has been canceled because of deep snow or icy roads. At Christmas we think of others in need just as God saw

our need and sent his son to save us from our sin and eternal death. We are blessed by him all the time, much more than we deserve. So we are moved to share with others. We put up a mitten tree so that the smallest can learn to share. They Hinkle place mittens, hats, gloves on the tree to be shared through Heartland Community Health Center. Adults purchase food with church funds and give them to the needy in the name of Jesus. Earlier in the year our

people purchased and assembled “shoe box” gifts for children around the world. Christmas touches the hearts of Christians so that children, adults and senior saints pour out love and kindness on others just as God in Christ has and does for them. Christmas Eve finds God’s family together to receive and worship the new born king. Children, their parents, their grandparents, people of all ages rejoice in the Lord. There is great diversity in God’s family, but only one Savior, one God in one body of believers giving “Glory to God in the Highest!” — Send email to Rod Hinkle at Preachrod45@aol.com.

Alcoholic may also have depression issues Annie’s Mailbox

Marcy Sugar and Kathy Mitchell anniesmailbox@comcast.net

doesn’t stick with it. She thinks her friends find her amusing, but she’s lost a lot of friends. I’ve been to Al-Anon and know the rest is up to her. My question is: Do we continue to invite her to family functions? I hate to see her destroying her health and reputation. — MADD and Sad Mother Dear Mother: Like many alcoholics, Susan needs to hit rock bottom before she will admit she needs help. And even then, we suspect an underlying depression is interfering with her sobriety. Susan may be more willing to address that aspect of her illness, so please urge her to talk to her doctor and get a referral to a therapist. Whether to invite her to family functions is up to you, but we recommend she turn over her car keys as soon as she arrives. Otherwise, call the police if she drives drunk.

‘Inappropriate Adult’ explores human depravity Featuring two of the more memorable performances of the year, the drama “Appropriate Adult” (9 p.m., Sundance) offer viewers an unflinching and unforgettable study of human evil. “Adult” is a co-production between Sundance and Britain’s ITV Studios. In the British justice system, an accused person considered mentally challenged or emotionally vulnerable is assigned an “appropriate adult,” someone to explain procedure and advocate for them throughout the legal process. In 1994, Janet Leach (Emily Watson), a modest mother of five, was assigned to Frederick West (Dominic West), then under scrutiny in the disappearance of his daughter. Dominic West (“The Wire”) portrays Fred West with a bland self-assurance that straddles the line between arrogance and simple-mindedness. Over several interviews, conducted with perfunctory, clock-watching precision, he opens up to Leach as he never would to prosecutors, police or even his own attorney. And as he grows more comfortable, the confessions spill out of him with a chilling nonchalance. Killers, particularly serial killers, are often portrayed as supervillains and depraved eccentrics. Think Hannibal Lecter. But West emerges as stunningly normal and at the same time cunning, vulnerable and even seductive. A harried unmarried mother with a live-in partner suffering from bipolar disorder, Leach endures West’s torrent of confessions with stoicism, but cannot hide the fact that she’s invited pure evil to enter her life, if not her heart. Her son and medicated partner can see what she cannot. And when West’s confessions of multiple murders hit the press, Leach becomes a minor celebrity, a lurid role she cannot perform without fumbling. “Adult” explores the very nature of human depravity without ever depicting a single act of violence or displaying any victims. But West’s casual descriptions of his actions, delivered without emotion or remorse, are as haunting as any killing ever depicted on screen.

Better she loses her job than her life — or causes someone else to lose theirs. Dear Annie: I’ve been with my boyfriend for three years. When we first met, he was working on his GED. That was fine because I knew he had a learning disability. But he is now 23 and making little progress toward his GED. I don’t want to push him because that only frustrates him, and besides, anything I say goes in one ear and out the other. He has a janitorial job two nights a week, and with his GED, he could do so much better.

UNIVERSAL CROSSWORD

BEING BOSSY By Aaron Zarrie

12/10

I want him to get this done so we can properly start our lives together. How do I convince him? — California Girl Dear California: Your boyfriend has to want this for himself and be prepared to do the necessary hard work. Right now, he isn’t willing. The best you can do is ask about his feelings on the subject and see where he stands. Being a janitor is a perfectly respectable job, although he should aim for full-time employment. Decide whether this is good enough for you, because it may be what you get.

Universal Crossword Edited by Timothy E. Parker December 10, 2011

JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS For Saturday, Dec. 10: This year others dominate in your personal and professional lives. You will need to bend more than usual and might feel resentful. Don’t. Come summer, if you are single, you will have your choice of suitors. Remember, Mr. or Ms. Right doesn’t arrive every day. If you are attached, the romantic climate starts warming up June 2012. Allow this closeness to evolve. Gemini naturally sees issues differently from you. 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)  Pressure builds, and you could be steamy. Push comes to shove. Tonight: Dinner with friends. Taurus (April 20-May 20)  You understand what is happening within a friendship. Push comes to shove when dealing with a problem. Tonight: Take some time off. Gemini (May 21-June 20)  You must deal with different stances, which might seem inordinately challenging. Deal directly with a child or loved one who might be holding you back. Tonight: Know what you want. Cancer (June 21-July

22)  You want to hear about what is causing a problem within your immediate circle. As a sign, you pick up hidden currents. Tonight: Whatever you need to do to relax. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)  Zero in on what you need. Others could be unusually contrary and difficult. How you handle controversy or strong challenges will emerge. Tonight: Follow the fun. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)  Pressure builds to take the lead. Controversy that surrounds a personal issue might be overwhelming. Tonight: Could go very late. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  You might be the one putting obstacles between you and another person at a distance. Perhaps you have made up your mind about this situation and have not absorbed new information. Tonight: Be spontaneous. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  Use Saturday to create a new beginning. You could be very tired and need some downtime. Tonight: The theme continues. Sagittarius (Nov. 22Dec. 21)

BIRTHDAYS Blagojevich is 55. Actor Michael Clarke Duncan is 54. Actor-director Kenneth Branagh is 51. Actress Nia Peeples is 50. TV chef Bobby Flay is 47. Country singer Kevin

 Defer to others. Everyone wants to feel like his or her ideas work. You might opt to say “no” to a friend or invitation, especially if you feel iffy about the plan. Tonight: The action surrounds you. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)  An underlying sense of malaise could filter through your various plans. Infuse your life with more energy and enthusiasm. Tonight: Do what you want. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  Your playfulness emerges. Whether you are frolicking with children or just allowing yourself to be more spontaneous is irrelevant — everyone has a good time. Tonight: Join friends or throw a party. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)  No matter which direction you go or what comes up, close relating is necessary in order to get past an obstacle.

Dear Annie: I have three daughters, the youngest of whom is 45. “Susan” has not been in a relationship for five years, and she has a severe drinking problem. She has had two DWI convictions and lost her license for a year. She received the usual counseling, did public service, paid a hefty fine and felt the embarrassment of seeing her name published in the local newspaper. Susan doesn’t seem to understand the problems she has created within the family. When she drinks, she becomes a different person, and I almost don’t recognize her. She ruined my grandson’s college graduation party, and my daughter-in-law still holds a grudge. Recently, her older sister had a 50th birthday celebration. Susan arrived sober, but drank a bottle of wine and then searched the cupboards for more when she thought no one was watching. After we left, I was told that she was loud and belligerent and kept drinking long after everyone else had gone to bed. People searched for her car keys, but she left them in the glove box and ended up driving herself home at 3 a.m. No one wanted to call the police for fear that Susan would lose her license, her job and her apartment, but they were worried sick. Susan has been to AA, but

Europe forges fiscal union, sees way out of crisis By Don Melvin and Gabriele Steinhauser Associated Press

BRUSSELS — Working almost to exhaustion and persuading countries one by one, European leaders agreed Friday to redefine their continent — hoping that by joining their fiscal fortunes they might stop a crippling debt crisis, save the euro currency and prevent worldwide economic chaos. Only one country said no: Britain. It will risk isolation while the rest of the continent plots its future. The coalition came together in a marathon negotiating session among the 27 European Union heads of government — hard bargaining that began with dinner Thursday evening and ended after 4 a.m., when red-eyed officials appeared before weary journalists to explain their proposed treaty. It was a major step forward in the long, postwar march toward European integration. It was two decades ago, on Dec. 9 and 10, 1991, that European negotiators drafted a treaty in Maastricht, Netherlands, to

Friday’s agreement — 23 countries are in favor and three more say they are open to the idea — would force countries to submit their budgets for central review and limit the deficits they can run. The hope is that it will stem a crisis over sovereign debt that consumed Greece, spread to Ireland, Italy, Por-

CONGRESS

Senators: Bill would encourage startups By David Goldstein McClatchy Newspapers

WASHINGTON — Debate over how to create jobs has, unsurprisingly, become mired in the politics of 2012. But two lawmakers on Thursday offered what they say is a bipartisan solution. Backed by data showing that most jobs are created by new businesses, Sens. Jerry Moran, R-Kan., and Mark Warner, D-Va., offered legislation that they say would make it easier for new companies to get off the ground and Moran thrive by reducing regulations on new businesses and by making it easier for foreign-born graduates of American universities to work and start businesses in this country. Their bill relies on research either produced or funded by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation of Kansas City, Mo., which promotes entrepreneurship, innovation and education. It found that companies less than 5 years old were responsible for nearly all of the net jobs created in the U.S. between 1980 and 2005. “The bottom line is simple: Without startups there is no net job creation in this country,” Brink Lindsey, a senior scholar at the foundation, said at a news conference with Moran and Warner in Washington. Moran said the work of President Barack Obama’s Council on Jobs and Competitiveness contributed to the bill. Steve Case, co-founder of AOL and a member of the council, who attended the news conference, said the development of startup businesses dropped 23 percent

over the past five years. Had development stayed at the level it was at in 2006, he said, “we’d have 2 million more jobs. This really is a key job creator.” House Republicans dismissed the council’s idea when Obama unveiled it a year ago. Moran, who served seven terms in the House, said that he was eager to work with the White House. “There are too many shots taken at too many people around here too often,” Moran said. “That diminishes the chance of somebody’s success. We want us all to come together and have success, not for a Republican or Democrat victory, but for improving the lives of the American people.” Elected a year ago, Moran said the intense partisan atmosphere on Capitol Hill has made it difficult to find agreement on economic concerns. He said he hopes their bill, called the Startup Act, would avoid what he called the usual “political enmity.” “Congress must put into place policies that remove barriers and help entrepreneurs succeed, so new businesses can grow and put Americans back to work,” he said. A key effort of the legislation would be to change immigration laws to allow foreign-born students in technical fields to remain in this country so their skills could benefit the economy. Under current law, the visa system makes that an arduous hurdle. Moran and Warner hope to create a new visa class for up to 50,000 foreign students who earned graduate degrees from American universities in science, technology, engineering or math. It also envisions a visa for up to 75,000 immigrant entrepreneurs who earned technical degrees in the United States and who create businesses that employ Americans.

tugal and Spain, and threatens to explode into a worldwide financial crisis capable of pushing the global economy into recession. “This is the breakthrough to the stability union,” German Chancellor Angela Merkel said. “We are using the crisis as an opportunity for a renewal.” To prevent excessive deficits, countries in the treaty will have to submit their na-

tional budgets to the European Commission, the executive body of the EU, which will have the power to send them back for revision. They must also bring their budgets close to balance. Except in special circumstances, the budget deficit of a country won’t be able to exceed 0.5 percent of gross domestic product, the amount of goods and services produced by its economy. An unspecified “automatic correction mechanism” would punish the rule-breakers. Germany and France insist that fiscal union is the best way to regain market trust, badly shaken by the escalating financial crisis. Most economists think it will not be enough. They say the euro countries also need enough money to guarantee that they can pay the massive debts that have resulted from running budget deficits year after year. Euro leaders put off until March a decision on whether to provide money on top of a Ð500 billion, or $668 billion, bailout fund for euro countries. European leaders did agree to add Ð200 billion to the In-

ternational Monetary Fund to help ailing countries. Only 17 of the 27 European Union countries use the euro currency, and its stability has been threatened by the massive national debts of some of those 17. All but two of the 10 non-euro countries — Britain and Denmark — are committed to adopting it eventually. The countries that use the euro found they had friends among those that do not. At least six and as many as nine non-euro countries are willing to bind themselves to the euro countries in a pact aimed at having their economies converge. Britain said no for two reasons: Prime Minister David Cameron’s Conservative Party includes a strong antiEU element, and Cameron, despite trying deep into the night, failed to win an exemption from regulation of the British financial industry. The other leaders would have none of it: Bankers and lack of regulation are viewed on the continent as a prime cause of the financial crisis. “What was on offer is not in Britain’s interest, so I didn’t agree to it,” Cameron

said. “We’re not in the euro, and I’m glad we’re not in the euro. We’re never going to join the euro, and we’re never going to give up this kind of sovereignty that these countries are having to give up.” Britain, which prides itself on its fierce independence, joined the then-European Economic Community in 1973 — only after French President Charles de Gaulle, who had vetoed the U.K.’s membership along with Germany’s leader, fell from power. Since then, it has retained a frosty skepticism toward the ambitions of France and Germany to forge ever closer political and fiscal ties. It eschewed both the euro and the Schengen open borders policy, fearful of losing power to determine its own fate. French President Nicolas Sarkozy blamed the British leader for scuttling what could have been an EU-wide treaty. He said Cameron’s exemptions for British finance “seemed to us unacceptable.” Some countries may face parliamentary opposition to the pact, which would allow for unprecedented oversight of national budgets.

‘Nutcracker’ beaming live to theaters By Jocelyn Noveck Associated Press

NEW YORK — For so many American kids, it’s their first — and sometimes only — exposure to ballet: A holiday performance of “The Nutcracker,” that classic tale of a little girl’s dreamlike encounters with battling mice and toy soldiers, a dashing prince, a growing Christmas tree and a land of sweets. There’s one in virtually every town. But until now, if you lived in Anchorage or Omaha or Tulsa, you weren’t able to see what many consider the Nutcracker gold standard: the late George Balanchine’s classic production for New York City Ballet. On Tuesday, though, the company will beam a live “Nutcracker” performance in high-definition from Lincoln Center to some 560 movie theaters in all 50 states, followed the next night by a live broadcast on public television. In taking its “Nutcracker” national, the company hopes to promote its brand, earn new revenue and join a growing trend of HD transmissions of live performance, pioneered by the Metropolitan Opera. “There’s nothing like the real thing,” says an admittedly “totally biased” Peter Martins, the company’s ballet master in chief. “Of course, the hope is that if this works — however you define success — it will become a new way to show the world what we do so well.” Martins — a former principal dancer with New York City Ballet under his legendary predecessor, Balanchine — grew up in Denmark and thus wasn’t exposed to “The Nutcracker” until he came to New York as a young adult. But he’s well aware of its crucial role as an introduction to ballet for generations of Americans — including virtually all his own dancers. One of them is Ashley Bouder, who was 6 when she saw her first “Nutcracker” in Carlisle, Pa. — as it happened, she also performed in it as an angel. It launched a lifetime of dancing, and Bouder, who

THIS PUBLICITY IMAGE released by Paul Kolnik shows Ashley Bouder, center, and Company in New York City Ballet’s production of George Balanchine’s “The Nutcracker.” The New York City Ballet will transmit its “Nutcracker” live next week to some 560 movie theaters in 50 states, giving children across the nation a chance to see what many consider the gold standard in “Nutcrackers.” The company joins a growing trend of HD transmissions of cultural events in movie theaters.

IN LAWRENCE “The Nutcracker” will be shown Tuesday at Southwind 12 movie theater, 3433 Iowa. The performance is scheduled to begin at 5 p.m. turns 28 today, is now an NYCB principal, known for her fearless, attacking style in jumps and turns. “I do think this particular ‘Nutcracker’ is really special,” said Bouder, who will dance the brief but demanding role of Dewdrop in both the live performances. “Balanchine’s choreography is so wonderful, for children as well as adults.” Indeed, the choreographer is known to have been particularly masterful with children — as in the scene where eight rosy-cheeked kids suddenly emerge from Mother Ginger’s 9-foot-wide skirt to perform an intricate yet buoyant dance. Growing up in Spain, Joaquin De Luz never got to see

a live “Nutcracker” as a child. The first “Nutcracker” he saw was Balanchine’s — on DVD, the 1993 version put out by New York City Ballet with the young Macaulay Culkin as the prince. “It’s just magical,” said De Luz, who’ll play the main male role, the Cavalier, next week. “That growing tree in the first act just breaks your heart. This is the quintessential ‘Nutcracker’ — not too much of anything, not too little.” De Luz will be dancing with his frequent partner, Megan Fairchild, as the Sugarplum Fairy. It’s better not to think too much about how many people will be watching, he said. “This is a big deal,” De Luz said. “I’m just hoping they won’t do the close-ups when I’m wetting my lips or doing something else I shouldn’t be doing.” That would be a minor mishap compared to last weekend, when Fairchild’s costume sud-

denly got caught on De Luz’s buttons during a lift. Such is the joy of live performing; he spent crucial seconds trying to yank the costumes apart before anyone got hurt. “I finally ripped the whole thing,” he said. “I’m glad it happened last Saturday. It’s good to have an accident under your belt.” It’s that coolness under pressure that Martins was looking for when casting the leads for next week’s performances. “I have 12 casts and they’re all fantastic,” Martins said. “But this particular cast is very, very reliable. They will always deliver.” The ballet transmissions, produced by Live From Lincoln Center for the NCM Fathom theater network, are the first by an American ballet company (the Bolshoi Ballet and the Royal Ballet in London have done their own, as well as several opera companies and the National Theater in London.)

Fire at Indian hospital kills 89 as staff flees; 6 hospital directors charged By Manik Banerjee Associated Press

KOLKATA, INDIA — Fleeing medical staff abandoned patients to a fire that killed 89 people Friday as black smoke poured through the sevenstory hospital in this city in eastern India, officials said. Six administrators were arrested. Dwellers of a nearby slum who first noticed the smoke and fire rushed to the AMRI Hospital to raise the alarm, but security guards kept them back, saying it was only a small blaze, witnesses said. It took firefighters in the city formerly known as Calcutta more than an hour to

respond, said Pradeep Sarkar, a witness whose uncle was hospitalized but was among those safely evacuated from the private facility. Some of the slum dwellers helped with the rescue. The neighborhood’s narrow streets apparently made it difficult for fire trucks to get close to the building and to bring in big hydraulic ladders. Eventually, they smashed through a main gate to make way for the ladders. Six hospital directors surrendered to police and were charged with culpable homicide, according to police who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to the media.

Mamata Banerjee, chief minister of the state of West Bengal, ordered the hospital’s license withdrawn. The hospital denied that any safety measures were violated. “It was horrifying that the hospital authorities did not make any effort to rescue trapped patients,” said Subrata Mukherjee, West Bengal state minister for public health engineering. “Senior hospital authorities ran away after the fire broke out.” Rescuers pulled 73 bodies from the building and another 16 died of their injuries later, said Danayati Sen, a top Kolkata police official. Most of the deaths were due to smoke inhalation, rescue officials said.

Four of the dead were staff members, hospital officials said. There were 160 patients in the 190-bed facility at the time, said Satyabrata Upadhyay, a senior vice president. One survivor told Indian television she was at the bedside of her mother, who was on a ventilator, when smoke started filling the room. “I kept ringing the bell for the nurse, but no one came,” she said, adding that rescuers managed to evacuate her mother more than two hours after the fire started. Rescue workers on ladders smashed windows in the upper floors to get to trapped patients before they suffocat-

ed from the smoke as sobbing relatives waited on the street. Patients were removed on stretchers and in wheelchairs to a nearby hospital. Patients and relatives complained that hospital staff did little to help and that smoke detectors failed to go off. S. Chakraborty said his wife, Moon Moon, who was hospitalized with a broken ankle, had called him at home to say that a fire had broken out. By the time he reached the hospital, she was dead, he said. Sudipta Nundy said his brother-in-law, Amitabha Das, who was being treated for an infection, died by the time rescuers arrived.

“He would have survived had hospital authorities allowed outsiders in early to evacuate the patients,” he said. Banerjee said that while the fire brigade was delayed, police arrived quickly to help with the rescue. Not all patients said they were abandoned. Jyoti Chaudhary, in his late 60s, said a hospital worker helped him down a stairway. The loss of life was “extremely unfortunate and painful,” Upadhyay said, adding that the facility followed strict fire safety measures. He promised to give 200,000 rupees, (about $4,000) to the relatives of the dead.
