About 50 students regularly participate in the after-school workout, which employs a plyometric training regimen.

awrence city officials haven’t forgotten about the idea of a curbside recycling program. A state law still is in place that stops the city from starting a new program before June 2014, but city officials have been spending a lot of time on the idea recently. Sources tell me that a committee of city officials and a couple of members of the city’s Solid Waste

‘Jump training’ used in after-school program to help keep students fit FORMER KU physical education instructor Bob Lockwood, a pioneer of plyometric training, watches the workout with Liberty Memorial Central teacher Michel Loomis.

By Peter Hancock phancock@ljworld.com

Bob Lockwood spent many years at Kansas University, first as a student in the late 1950s, then as a coach, physical education instructor and researcher from the 1960s through the 1990s. Over the years, he pushed hundreds of students through his class called “Jump Training,� a rigorous training regimen that used a scientifically designed method called “plyometrics.�

That refers to training muscles to produce fast, powerful bursts of motion to maximize an athlete’s ability to jump and sprint.

So it was a poignant moment last week when Lockwood, now 74, came and watched one of his former students, Chad Richards, lead

an after-school fitness program at Liberty Memorial Central Middle School where two of the participants in class were Lockwood’s own grandchildren: eighthgrader Zach Lockwood and his sixth-grade sister, Lexie. But Lockwood said he wasn’t terribly surprised to see the training program that he helped pioneer in the United States be passed down to a third generation. “Really, my biggest

But it all came from initially doing a plyometric jump from any corner when they were in high school.

Corliss confirmed the city designed with the goal of

increasing the citywide recycling rate to 50 percent by 2020. The city has been changing how it figures its recycling rate, but previously the rate has been in the 30 percent range. # A plan should be developed to minimize “displacement and economic impact to current recycling collectors.” There are about a half-dozen small, private companies that provide the service in Lawrence. The plan says the city will evaluate proposals, in part, on how well the city’s chosen provider works with those existing companies. Jim Tuchscherer, owner of Home Recycling, said neither Deffenbaugh nor Waste Management has contacted him about how his 13-year-old business might be incorporated into a citywide system. The city of Lawrence has contacted Tuchscherer about its idea, but Tuchscherer hasn’t liked what he’s heard. Tuchscherer said the city is proposing that the recycling companies be allowed to keep their current customers but not be allowed to add new ones. “I’ve told the city that I’m not opposed to increasing recycling, but I am opposed to the city voting to put me out of business,” Tuchscherer said. Tuchscherer said he thinks the fair thing for the city to do would be to buy out his business and the other small recycling companies that operate in the city. I haven’t heard any serious talk of that happening, however, at City Hall. Tuchscherer said he doesn’t think the city will find a way to successfully incorporate the small companies into a citywide plan. “I don’t think there is a workable option,” Tuchscherer said. “I’m sure Waste Management and Deffenbaugh have figured that out too.” Assuming commissioners pass the plan at tonight’s meeting, the next big action step is expected in January, when commissioners will be presented summaries of the proposals made by the four entities. Commissioners meet at 6:35 p.m. tonight at City Hall.

The school contracts with Chad Richards, owner of the Summit and Next Level fitness clubs in Lawrence, both located at 901 New Hampshire St., to come in and lead the classes. But Richards said the program he leads at the school is significantly less strenuous than Lockwood’s class to make it more age-appropriate for middle school students. “It’s modified quite a bit,” he said. “With kids, you’ve just got to keep them mainly active. We used to have ninth-, eighthand seventh-graders here. And you could see as the seventh-graders became eighth-graders, and then ninth-graders, how well they were developing. And

say a new bond issue of $93 million or less would not result in a tax increase and could even result in a small property tax decrease. During Monday night’s meeting, consultants with the design firm Gould Evans presented revised cost estimates for all the projects that have been under consideration. Those estimates included a “base” package of $85.7 million. But some board members questioned some of the projects on that list, including technology purchases that could wear out or become obsolete before the bonds are paid off. Board member Rick In-

a half months, they tested us again and I had a 37inch vertical. So I gained 4 inches in four months. It’s pretty amazing.” Although Lockwood was one of the early advocates of plyometric training in the United States, he says it actually began during the Cold War in the former Soviet Union to train their military and their national athletes, among others. “I think they get credit for that type of loading the muscle and explosion afterwards, and the great results that they had,” he said. “But interestingly, the greatest jumpers in the world that I’ve ever known were dancers. (Mikhail) Baryshnikov, of course, was a Russian dancer who reportedly had a 60-inch vertical jump. In his prime, he was just unbelievable.”

KU seeks $30M in bonds for medical building

Group leaves no time to hear teachers

Artwork with Zen, Kansan influence

By Scott Rothschild srothschild@ljworld.com

TOPEKA â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Despite expected budget cuts in many areas of state government, Kansas University officials on Monday pushed for a $30 million commitment from Gov. Sam Brownback to help construct a new $75 million medical building at KU MediBrownback cal Centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main campus in Kansas City, Kan. Steve Stites, KUMCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s acting executive vice chancellor, was scheduled to meet with Brownback to discuss the proposed education and training facility. Stites said the current medical education building, which opened in 1976, was made for the large-group lecture format, which does not fit the modern medical training model. He said medical training has evolved from â&#x20AC;&#x153;see one, do one, teach one,â&#x20AC;? to small group, team-based instruction with lots of simulation

Outer loop highway for area gains support

OLATHE (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Policymakers have been considering the need for a loop highway on the outskirts of suburban Johnson County in part to deal with the swelling population in the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rural areas. An outer loop is being examined as part of a state study on changing transportation demands in Johnson, Wyandotte, Please see BUILDING, page 4A Miami, Douglas and Leav-

enworth counties in eastern Kansas. The study is expected to be finished next year, The Kansas City Star reported Monday. Last week, Gov. Sam Brownback said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s among those whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to see more serious discussion of such a roadway. He said a loop that would run from Interstate 70 near Tonganoxie south to Gardner and then east

toward Missouri would help deal with the growing population and a BNSF shipping hub thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s under construction in Edgerton. But any plans for a new loop are only in the discussion phase. Money from the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s transportation budget already has been allocated for major projects, and it generally takes several years to plan such a highway.

The county has urged state officials to consider the outer loop as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;freeway,â&#x20AC;? which could cost more than $2 billion to build. But the county also has suggested the state could make it a toll road, which could be a hurdle because Kansas requires any new toll road to pay for itself. There have been two previous failed tries to build a similar highway.

But the task force hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t allowed time, and apparently wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, to hear from those who SCHOOLS are in the classroom every day: teachers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our voice, when it comes to education decisions, is critical because we are the ones that are intimately involved in that work,â&#x20AC;? said Kansas National Education Association President Karen Godfrey, who has taught for more than 30 years in the Seaman school district in Shawnee County. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is disappointing when our

and practice before trying a procedure in real life. Stites compared the new method to pilot training, which produces a low error rate in the airline industry. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pilots donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make mistakes and doctors do. What is different about their training? Pilots learn in small groups; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about simulation. They are put in every type of situation so they know how to deal with it before they go into the real world,â&#x20AC;? he said. In addition, he said a new medical educa- KANSAS tion building UNIVERSITY was needed to help keep up with the demand for physicians in Kansas. The proposed building would increase the class size at the Kansas City campus by 40 students, from 120 to 160. As of 2010, Kansas ranked 39th among the 50 states in active physicians per 100,000 population. And by 2030, 60 percent of the current physician workforce in Kansas will have left the profession. KU is competing for students with Nebraska, Iowa, Missouri, Colorado, Oklahoma and Arkansas, which have recently built new medical education buildings or upgraded facilities, Stites said. Under KUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposal, the state would provide $30 million in bonds over a 10-year period. KU also is asking the state to release $26 million that was returned from the federal government as part of a FICA refund related to payroll taxes paid back in the 1990s. And KU officials have said the school will embark on a $22 million fundraising venture for the building. KUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget request also includes nearly $3 million for improvements at the School of Medicineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Wichita campus. Brownback will release his budget recommendation next month when the 2013 legislative session starts. In preparing his budget, Brownbackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office directed state agencies to include a 10 percent budget cut in their spending requests. Last month, Brownback told the Kansas Board of Regents there was little chance of an overall increase for higher education. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think the time is appropriate with the Legislature or with me to ask for base fundingâ&#x20AC;? increases, Brownback had said. But Brownback said the possibility existed to provide additional dollars for specific projects at the universities.

In an email obtained by the Lawrence JournalWorld, Ken Willard, the chairman of the Governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s School Efficiency Task Force, rejected a request from KNEA to allow teachers to testify before the panel. Willard said that he wanted the task force to spend its last meeting hearing from presenters who had been previously scheduled for an earlier meeting â&#x20AC;&#x201D; including the state librarian â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and to discuss issues for possible recommendations to Brownback. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would very much like to hear from teachers at the classroom level who have suggestions for improving efficiency in the allocation of education dollars, so while we will not have time for more testimony during the task force meeting, I would love to have teachers submit their testi-

mony in writing for consideration by the task force,â&#x20AC;? Willard said. Four educators were on hand at a KNEA news conference to share with reporters what they would have told the task force, which was meeting upstairs. They said reductions in school funding over the past several years had increased class sizes and reduced the number of counselors, librarians, and janitors in schools, as well as funds available for professional development. This meant, they said, they had less time to prepare lessons and collaborate with colleagues and had to spend more time on chores, such as vacuuming classrooms and cleaning tabletops. And they said that having fewer school counselors was having a negative effect on studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; mental well-being. Todd Roberts, a thirdgrade teacher in Derby, said his class has access to a social worker one day each week. He said half of his students are from divorced parents. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have kids crying be-

cause they think they wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see Mom or Dad for a week,â&#x20AC;? he said. Judy Johnson, a counselor in Great Bend, said the high school there of 1,000 students has one librarian with no support staff, and the elementary schools have no counselors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It might be efficient to have no elementary counselors â&#x20AC;Ś but is it really educationally effective? The students who are dealing with so many things, they need our help,â&#x20AC;? Johnson said. And the educators said they feared the tax cuts signed into law by Brownback were going to result in more cuts to schools. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No amount of efficiencies that they are talking about in that committee upstairs can make up for what has already been cut out of school budgets, and no amount of efficiencies can make up for what is potentially going to be cut as the governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tax bill takes effect,â&#x20AC;? said Mark Desetti, a KNEA spokesman. Kansas spends about $3 billion each year in state revenue on public schools,

which makes up about half of the state budget. Brownback signed into law tax cuts that will drop the top state income tax rate to 4.9 percent from 6.45 percent and exempt the owners of 191,000 partnerships, sole proprietorships and other business from income taxes. Legislative researchers have estimated that the cuts will be worth $4.5 billion over the next six years. The researchers also project that the cuts will create collective budget shortfalls approaching $2.5 billion during the same period. State budget experts say the state is already facing a nearly $300 million revenue shortfall next year. Brownback has said school districts should focus more of their resources on classroom instruction and find ways to reduce spending on functions that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t affect teaching. Some ideas that have been discussed are sharing administrative resources and purchasing power. But Brownbackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s task force has generated controversy since he an-

nounced its formation in October. It was under fire immediately because it was dominated by accountants and no one on it was an educator or worked in a school. Brownback also established a website where people could anonymously report inefficient spending in the educational system. Democrats and education groups said the task force was set up to attack public schools. In the task forceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first meeting on Oct. 8, it heard from the Kansas Policy Institute, which has been a critic of how schools spend money. In setting up the task force, the governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office said only 15 of the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 286 school districts complied with a state law that requires at least 65 percent of state funds be spent in the classroom. But there is no such legal requirement, and school officials released a report that showed based on state funding, all school districts were surpassing the 65 percent level.

City to study plan for extra level of library parking By Chad Lawhorn clawhorn@ljworld.com

Lawrence city commissioners are set to decide whether to up the ante on how much the public would pay for an extra level of parking in a proposed downtown parking garage. Commissioners at tonightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meeting are set to consider a plan that would have the general public pay about $435,000 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; or more than half the total cost â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to add 72 spaces to the garage planned to be built as part of the Lawrence Public Library project. The idea is receiving a positive recommendation from city staff members. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The reason Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m recommending we proceed is because we get such few opportunities to add parking downtown,â&#x20AC;? City Manager David Corliss said. Corliss â&#x20AC;&#x153;This extra level basically will be the equivalent of adding another surface parking lot in downtown. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think any of us know of any properties we want to bulldoze that would allow us to add another surface parking lot.â&#x20AC;? Commissioners were presented with a different plan in September, which would have had private property owners in the downtown district paying for the majority of the extra level of parking. But commissioners heard from several large downtown landowners who objected to the way the city was going to place spe-

Goddard said the hope was that the new Oracle system would make the online application process more intuitive and simple, but it has become clear that hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been the case. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just not as easy to

cial assessments on their properties to pay for the garage. Today, commissioners will hear a new plan that will relieve several properties from the special assessment, which will cause the city at large to pick up a larger-thananticipated portion of the projectâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cost. The city has received a bid of $834,806 to add the extra level of parking. Under the new plan, the city at large will pay 52 percent of the bill. Previously, the city was planning on using general tax dollars to pay for about 35 percent of the project. Under the new plan, owners will pay about 30 cents for every square foot of property they own in the downtown district. The assessment is only made against the lot, and not the building itself. The public price tag has increased because the new plan proposes for the city to pay the special assessments of two types of property in downtown. They are: ! Properties owned by nonprofit organizations. Several downtown churches had expressed concern about being charged for the new garage. Several churches argued they shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be charged the assessment because they create demand for parking during a time when many other parking spots arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t being used in downtown. ! Private property that is being used to provide private parking in downtown. Several businesses, including the JournalWorld, provide parking lots for employees and customers. Representa-

tives of several of those businesses had asked to be given credit for providing off-street parking, even though the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s downtown zoning doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t require it. Under the new plan, businesses would not be charged an assessment on the portion of their properties used for parking but would be charged an assessment on the remainder of their properties. Corliss said that despite the increased cost to the public, the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget could handle the extra expense. He is proposing to take about $50,000 a year out of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parking fund and its reserve funds to pay for the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s share of the project. City officials sent out information about the new plan to affected property owners more than a week ago. Corliss said he thinks the new plan has made the idea of an extra level of parking more popular with some downtown property owners but not all. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think this makes it more palatable, but I still think there will be property owners concerned about the cost,â&#x20AC;? Corliss said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I understand that, but I still go back to this is probably a once-a-decade or so opportunity.â&#x20AC;? The extra 72 spaces would be in addition to the 250 spaces that already are included in the design of the new public parking garage for the library. The libraryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s current surface parking lot, which will be eliminated when the garage is built, has about 125 spaces.

use as I would like,â&#x20AC;? Goddard said. The KU provostâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office is taking steps to make sure that searches for faculty members in particular arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t harmed by the systemâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s struggles, she said. The office has set up a separate online page, facultydevelopment.ku.edu/ faculty-searches, listing all open faculty jobs, saving applicants the trouble of searching for positions using the Oracle system. The office is also accepting faculty applications through email, as a way around the online system. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s offering to pay for departments to re-advertise faculty jobs, though so far only one has accepted the offer, Goddard said. Faculty recruitment tends to be in full swing this time of year, she said. KU is also seeking to fill 64 newly created faculty positions in its first widescale recruiting effort since the mid-2000s. In his letter last week, Vitter said Goddard and

others were working to put a â&#x20AC;&#x153;long-term solutionâ&#x20AC;? in place by the end of the academic year. Goddard said her office had already begun looking for alternative systems. One vendor offered a system that appears promising, she said, and news on that front may be available within a few weeks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We obviously want to make a very good decision on this one,â&#x20AC;? Goddard said. She said university staff had worked hard to put the new system in place, but the lesson sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d taken away was that the staff would need to examine future application systems thoroughly from the perspective of future applicants, and not just from the perspective of the university. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This one touches so many people who are not already a part of our community,â&#x20AC;? Goddard said.

Agritourism back on county agenda By Peter Hancock phancock@ljworld.com

Douglas County commissioners will try again this week to reach agreement on zoning regulation language that would allow property owners in unincorporated parts of the county to obtain permits for agritourism-related businesses and special events. The commission will consider those issues when it meets at 6:35 p.m. Wednesday in the courthouse, 1100 Massachusetts St. The first item would allow people to set up â&#x20AC;&#x153;agritourismâ&#x20AC;? businesses on agricultural property. Those include businesses such as horseback riding, bed and breakfasts, and farm winery tours. They also could include businesses that host â&#x20AC;&#x153;assemblyâ&#x20AC;? events such as weddings and receptions. The proposed special event permits would be similar, except they would apply to single events or short-term activities. According to county planning officials, many of those uses are allowed now, but if they engage in additional retail sales â&#x20AC;&#x201D; selling T-shirts or souvenirs, for example â&#x20AC;&#x201D; they need commercial zoning or a conditional use permit.

BRIEFLY months in prison, dependKU Hospital earns on someone’s criminal stroke center status ing history. Kansas University Hospital has become one of the first five facilities in the country to earn Advanced Comprehensive Stroke Center designation from The Joint Commission, a nonprofit group that certifies and accredits health care programs across the country. The hospital announced the certification Monday. KU Hospital is the only facility in the Midwest to earn the certification so far. The Joint Commission certified KU Hospital’s stroke program as a primary stroke center in 2006. The new designation comes after a two-day evaluation by Joint Commission surveyors in September. The visitors evaluated the hospital’s stroke program on factors including 24/7 care for complex stroke patients, imaging capabilities, specialty procedures and research. “The higher standards of the CSC designation indicate that our hospital can assist all stroke patients and is better prepared — with state-of-the-art equipment, infrastructure, staff and training — to diagnose and treat patients with the most complex strokes,” said Colleen Lechtenberg, medical director of the KU Hospital stroke program, in a release.

Farmers pumped about 100,000 extra acre-feet of water in 2011, he said. The new program will allow irrigators to use more water during drought years and manage their water rights over five years. That is expected to help the state’s aquifers recover during years with more plentiful moisture.

Gov. announces plan to merge juvenile, adult corrections By John Hanna Associated Press

TOPEKA — Gov. Sam Brownback announced Monday that he intends to merge Kansas’ troubled juvenile justice agency with the adult Department of Corrections system, arguing that two critical legislative audits in the past five months show the need to abandon “a failed socialservices approach” to handling young offenders. Brownback contends the juvenile facilities and programs would be better managed under the Department of Corrections and says money that’s going toward administration of the Juvenile Justice Authority could instead be diverted into programs for offenders. The conservative Republican governor’s plan to issue an executive order early next year to the GOP-controlled Legislature received the immediate endorsement of incoming Senate Majority Leader Terry Bruce, a former county prosecutor. Under the state constitution, Brownback will have 30 days to issue the order once legislators convene their 2013 session in mid-January. Lawmakers will then have 60 days to reject it, or the order will take effect July 1. Brownback removed the Juvenile Justice Authority’s top two officials earlier this year and put a Department of Corrections official in charge. Later, the legislative audits questioned the authority’s handling of safety issues and suggested education programs for young offenders aren’t up to par. The state separated juvenile justice programs in 1997 from the agency that became the Department for Children and Families,

A long-term solution is to increase the emphasis on safety at our youth facilities. This has been an area of problem for some period of time.” — Gov. Sam Brownback partly to give the programs more attention and partly to hold young offenders more accountable. Brownback said the agency’s recent problems — and the ones predating the authority’s creation — demonstrate that corrections professionals should run juvenile programs and centers. “A long-term solution is to increase the emphasis on safety at our youth facilities,” Brownback said during a Statehouse news conference. “This has been an area of problem for some period of time.” Brownback said the Juvenile Justice Authority will become a division of the Department of Corrections, with a deputy secretary. He said he intends to appoint Acting Juvenile Justice Commissioner Terri Williams, a former deputy corrections secretary, to the position and praised her for doing “a very good job in a difficult set of circumstances.” The Department of Corrections houses about 9,400 adult offenders, running seven prisons and a mental health center with an annual budget of about $282 million. The Juvenile Justice Authority oversees programs for 1,500 young offenders, housing about 330 of them at juvenile corrections centers in Topeka and Larned, and has an annual budget of $90 million.

Dems, GOP embrace defense spending cuts WASHINGTON — Substantial reductions in military spending should be part of any budget deal that President Barack Obama negotiates with Congress to avert the so-called “fiscal cliff” of automatic tax hikes and spending cuts, a group of House Republicans and Democrats said Monday. With just three weeks to the double economic hit, 22 lawmakers endorsed further cuts in projected military spending to address the nation’s debt, arguing that long-term, strategic reductions were possible with the end of the war in Iraq and the drawdown in Afghanistan. “As we transition from wartime to peacetime, and as we confront our nation’s fiscal challenges, future defense budgets should

reflect the conclusion of these wars and acknowledge that our modern military is able to approach conflicts utilizing fewer but more advanced resources,” the lawmakers wrote in a letter to Obama and congressional leaders. The lawmakers said “substantial defense savings” could be achieved without undermining national security, and they urged Obama, House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, and other congressional leaders to include such savings in any agreement. The latest Republican proposal in the negotiations with Obama calls for $300 billion in cuts in discretionary spending over 10 years, but it does not specify how much would be cut from defense and domestic programs.

Can U.S. afford to outsource Syria?

EDITORIALS

Struggling campaign United Way of Douglas County needs some additional help to meet its annual fundraising goal.

T

he United Way of Douglas County has sounded an alarm that it is only about halfway toward this year���s ambitious goal of $1.8 million, in an annual campaign that was to have ended Friday. Organization and campaign officials concede that it is unusual for the effort to find itself so short of the mark, with only about $925,000 in hand, at this stage of the yearly drive. Most county residents probably assumed the campaign would meet its goal — as usual. The 29 social service agencies that rely on the umbrella organization’s fundraising efforts for their support obviously are at risk. Some might suggest that the United Way itself may be also, if agencies ultimately were to adopt an every-man-for-himself attitude in order to campaign for their own operating funds. Such an eventuality would be detrimental to the agencies in the long run and to the communities in the county. The organization has said it will continue to accept contributions past the campaign’s deadline in an effort to meet the goal, although they acknowledge that it’s unlikely they’ll match even the $1.7 million that was raised in 2011. Several possible circumstances are considered as likely influences on the results to date. One has to be the general economic situation across the country. Unemployment and layoffs continue to affect Douglas County, with unusual buyouts at Kansas University providing just one key local signal of the national doldrums. A second influence may relate somehow to the presidential election cycle. United Way leaders noted that the last time the drive fell short of goal was in the year of a presidential election. A third, United Way officials acknowledge, could be concern or skepticism about changes and restructuring in how it now is allocating funds. The organization created three broad community goals (education, self-sufficiency and health care) and required participating agencies to show how their mission relates to at least one. That changed the allocation of funds, caused budget problems for some agencies, and may have upset some donors as well. It’s difficult to measure the success of those changes after a single year, but United Way officials report they’ve already seen good early results in programs that received targeted funding to help boost student achievement. In the self-sufficiency area, a plan has been developed to improve coordination among several local food pantries by placing their management under a single agency. A 2012 United Way grant also allowed Health Care Access and the Douglas County AIDS Project to colocate to better serve community needs in a more cost-effective way. Only the United Way leaders themselves can evaluate the strategy, leadership and effectiveness of this year’s campaign, compared with previous efforts. If they determine that internal changes have affected annual giving, leaders need to step up to better explain their strategy or consider further changes. Regardless, the community needs to recognize, with additional financial support, the value and importance of a unified fundraising campaign for essential social service agencies that face greater demands year after year. It’s not too late to give; it’s never too late to support worthwhile agencies that serve our community well.

Now that the U.S. elections are over, the Obama administration is applying a full-court press for a political solution in Syria. Finally. But U.S. officials still refuse to openly engage with, or give military aid to, Syrian rebel commanders, who will exercise major influence after the fall of Bashar al-Assad. Instead, the Obama team has been outsourcing the role of aiding military rebels to Saudi Arabia and the tiny Gulf emirate of Qatar, with the Saudis now taking the lead. At a meeting last week in Antalya, Turkey, more than 300 commanders from the rebel Free Syrian Army agreed under pressure from Saudi Arabia and Qatar to form a unified command structure, in return for promises they would get more advanced weapons. Yet secular Syrian rebel officers told me during my recent trip to Turkey and Syria that Washington’s past reliance on the Gulf states has meant that most military aid has gone to Islamists. Previous U.S. decisions to outsource the job of arming Muslim rebels to Gulf states also backfired. Qatar reportedly turned weapons over to Islamic militants during last year’s conflict in Libya, and the Saudis gave weapons to the worst militants in the Afghan war against the Soviets. In both cases, our outsourcing of responsibility harmed our own security interests. So why are we making the same mistake in Syria? One reason is President Obama’s extreme reluctance to get involved in another Mideast war, even if the U.S. role were confined to helping Syrians do the fighting. Instead, U.S. officials have

Apart from humanitarian aid, the United States has provided only nonlethal assistance to unarmed rebels. It has stuck to that position even as the real battle for Syria is being fought on the ground. After two years of failed efforts to unify the Syrian political opposition, U.S. and European officials, along with Qatar, have now godfathered a new Syrian transitional leadership body. The United States is set to recognize the Syrian Opposition Council, or SOC, this week. This is good news. If the SOC holds together, it can provide a channel through which to funnel desperately needed humanitarian aid to liberated areas of Syria. Such aid could in turn strengthen the hand of civilian leadership councils that have emerged in areas freed from Assad’s rule. U.S. officials also hope this new council will exert civilian

Pay fors? To the editor: It is unsettling to learn that Gov. Brownback has coined a new phrase, “pay fors” to describe the budgetary conundrums he has created for Kansas. Though the English language has over a million words available, he created this awkward neologism. When speaking of the consequences of decreased state revenue, are the words “shortfalls,” “gaps” or “deficits” too negative or too embarrassing for him to say? This is a not a good example for Kansas students. If they do not know or cannot find an appropriate word in their vocabulary, are they now allowed to create and use a sentence fragment instead?

From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Dec. 11, 1912: “Not very much inYEARS terest is being shown AGO in the efforts of the IN 1912 Salvation Army to give the poor of the city a Christmas dinner. The little glasses that have been distributed over the city have very little money in them and the people haven’t as yet seemed to take much of an interest in it.” … “A great deal of uneasiness is being felt by the students of the High School on account of the petty thieving going on there. Somebody, evidently a student, has been going through the coat pockets of the other students the taking most anything that happens to be there. This practice has been going

on for several years but not until recently has it reached the point where it is very unwise to leave even a stick of candy in your pockets.” … “At last the preachers have taken up arms against the innocent bunnies and for today at least the rabbits in the vicinity of the Clevenger farm north of town had better keep themselves as far away as possible for the preachers say that they are all good shots and can hit a rabbit if said rabbit will only sit still long enough. The party, composed of Dr. Bulgin, Rev. Wilhite, Rev. Milton, Dr. Rose and Alfred Lawrence, started out this morning for a day’s hunting north of town about five miles and will take dinner of fried chicken at the home of John Clevenger.” — Compiled by Sarah St. John

fall into the wrong hands. Now rebel commanders have overrun Syrian army bases and seized ground-to-air weapons on their own, leaving the United States with no say whatsoever on their use. “People think the United States is not serious,” says Louay Sakka, a spokesman for the Syrian Support Group, which lobbies for the more moderate wing of the Free Syrian Army. “Nonlethal aid will not remove Assad from political power. A political solution will not work without a military part.” Now the Saudis are taking the lead in setting up a central Free Syrian Army command system intended to coordinate the flow of arms and funds to rebel fighters. The system will supposedly exclude groups with al-Qaida ties, such as Jabhat al-Nusra. Perhaps the Saudis (and Qataris) will favor professional rebel officers, regardless of whether they have beards. Perhaps not. History gives reason for concern. Meanwhile, the United States, which reportedly had a small CIA presence at the meeting in Turkey, remains in the background. “If you don’t want others to have influence, you have to fill the void,” says Amr Al Azm, a Syrian activist and history professor at Shawnee State University in Ohio. “You can own the thing or let someone else own it.” When it comes to shaping the military outcome in Syria, which will affect our interests throughout the Mideast, do we really want the Saudis to own it? Can we really afford to lead from behind?

control over the rebel military forces and ultimately help negotiate the exit of Assad. But the military struggle is fast outpacing efforts to broker a political solution. As rebel fighters gain ground, they may have little time for the Cairobased SOC or the wishes of U.S. officials who have given neither weapons nor money. They are more likely to listen to Gulf countries that provide both — and whose interests differ from ours. Consider what has happened over the last two years. For months, opposition activists have urged the United States to vet and help secular opposition commanders, including high-level army defectors. Instead, this task was outsourced, mainly to Qatar, which never managed to create a centralized military leadership structure. Money and weapons — some from Gulf states, some from wealthy religious Muslims — flowed directly to local commanders, many of them militant Islamists. Militia leaders and individual fighters grew militantstyle beards to get weapons. Mohammed Ghanem of the Syrian American Council recounted asking a fighter at a checkpoint near Aleppo why he was working with Jabhat al-Nusra, a jihadi group connected with al-Qaeda. The man angrily retorted, “They are the ones with the guns.” U.S. officials repeatedly refused to supply the groundto-air weapons the rebels desperately needed to repel massive government bombing attacks on civilians, even when groups such as the SSG proposed detailed control systems. The administration feared such weapons might

LHS girls overwhelm Harmon, 78-7 By Benton Smith basmith@ljworld.com

Tom Keegan tkeegan@ljworld.com

File in the box labeled â&#x20AC;&#x153;predictableâ&#x20AC;? the outcry from Kansas City Royals jersey-buyers over general manager Dayton Moore including baseballâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s No. 1 power-hitting prospect and the organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top-rated pitching prospect in the same trade. Trace it to the optimistic nature of human beings. We convince ourselves the tomorrow we havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seen will be better than today. The unknown, untainted by unpleasant memories, forever trumps the known. Just for fun, pretend trades were part of college basketball and imagine the outrage had Bill Self dealt freshman Josh Selby, the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s No. 1-ranked prospect, for Texas junior Jâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Covan Brown. Angry words would have echoed throughout every bar in town and screamed from every corner of cyberspace: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sure, Self can coach and recruit, but do you think heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a very good GM? He just traded the next John Wall.â&#x20AC;? Didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exactly turn out that way. In time, Wil Myers might develop into one of the top power hitters in the game. At 21, he hit .314 with 37 home runs and 109 RBIs in 134 games of a season split between Double A (35) and Triple A (99). His pitch recognition might develop to the point he can strike out at a less disturbing rate than 140 times in 522 at bats. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an excellent prospect, all right. The word â&#x20AC;&#x153;mightâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;prospectâ&#x20AC;? need not enter discussions about James Shields, the main player acquired by the Royals in the deal with the Tampa Bay Rays. Moore entered the offseason with a lousy starting rotation that ensured a better shot at last place than first. He has built a bona fide contender to win the American League Central. Shields has surpassed 200 innings in six consecutive seasons, made exactly 33 starts in each of the past five seasons and entered his prime in the past two, compiling a 31-22 record with a combined ERA of 3.15. Left-hander Mike Montgomery didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t show signs of developing for the Royals. The new start gives him a better shot, but still a long one. Jake Odorizzi was the Royalsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; top pitching prospect. Wade Davis, acquired from the Rays, is a comparable talent. The Royals probably liked Davis slightly better; the Rays probably ranked Odorizzi slightly higher. The symbolic shift this trade signals â&#x20AC;&#x201D; from sellers peddling tomorrow to buyers serious about today â&#x20AC;&#x201D; canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be ignored. With so much young talent in the lineup â&#x20AC;&#x201D; catcher Salvador Perez, first baseman Eric Hosmer, third baseman Mike Moustakas, shortstop Alcides Escobar, left fielder Alex Gordon and designated hitter Billy Butler â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Moore had to overhaul the rotation now. He did, re-signing Jeremy Guthrie and adding Shields, Davis and Ervin Santana in trades that didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t subtract a major-leaguer. Moore made the Royals relevant again. Now go sign a free-agent right fielder, Dayton.

KANSAS FOOTBALL

Most valuable

Jayhawks Matt Tait picks out KUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best in 2012 (hint: itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s these guys)

Running back James Sims

Looking back on a 1-11 season without shaking oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s head is not easy to do, but, believe it or not, there were more than a few moments worth celebrating during the 2012 Kansas University football season. Sure, the Jayhawksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; record worsened for the fourth straight season, and, yes, there were still a couple of lopsided results on the scoreboard. But there also were signs of progress and, perhaps more importantly, several moments that defined what football under first-year head coach Charlie Weis would look like. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a quick look back at the best of 2012:

Offensive MVP: James Sims For the third straight season, Sims led the Jayhawks in rushing, this time finishing with a careerbest 1,013 yards in just nine games. After serving a three-game suspension to start the Sims season, Sims responded with a stretch of six straight 100-yard games, which set a school record. The junior from Irving, Texas, looked bigger, faster and stronger all season and became the best back in the Big 12, even if the postseason awards did not reflect that.

Royals couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bank on â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;What if?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Through no fault of their own, Kansas City, Kan., Harmonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s girls basketball players picked the wrong night to face Lawrence High. The Lions, who lost their first two games of the season by a combined five points, had no interest in giving the Hawks the faintest chance of keeping the game close and drubbed the visitors, 78-7, Monday night at LHS. Less than four minutes into the beating, Lawrence (1-2) made it clear Harmon didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stand a chance. Kylie Seaman, Anna Wright, Kionna Coleman, Jolona Shield and Makayla Bell had all scored, and LHS coach Nick Wood

tackles), solid against the pass (three interceptions) and a leader throughout.

Matt Tait mtait@ljworld.com

Runners-up: Tanner Hawkinson, Duane Zlatnik and Trevor Marrongelli â&#x20AC;&#x201D; It was tempting to put sophomore speed back Tony Pierson here, but I think the offensive line, particularly these three seniors, deserve a ton of credit for KUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s success running the ball during a season in which throwing it was not really an option.

Defensive MVP: Ben Heeney For a guy who played next to no snaps a season ago, the sophomore from Hutchinson came up huge with 112 tackles, good for third in the Big 12, Heeney including 12 for loss and one sack. Heeneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s relentless style and physical play made him a player who stood out no matter how bad the score got. Runner-up: Bradley McDougald â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The anchor of the KU secondary, McDougald was great against the run (92

Offensive Rookie of the Year: Taylor Cox Had it not been for Simsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; breakthrough season, the junior-college transfer who runs just like him â&#x20AC;&#x201D; perhaps harder â&#x20AC;&#x201D; wouldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve finished with much more than the 464 yards and three touchdowns on 91 carries he had. With Sims and Pierson both missing time this season, Coxâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s presence made life much easier on the KU coaching staff. Runner-up: Michael Cummings â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The red-shirt freshman from Killeen, Texas, injected life into a stagnant KU offense in the fourth quarter of the Oklahoma State loss then replaced Dayne Crist in the starting lineup for the next several weeks. For a guy who had never played a down of college football, Cummings did about all you could ask while functioning as the trigger man for KUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ground attack. Defensive Rookie of the Year: Jake Love Like Heeney, this former Oklahoma state wrestling champion showed no regard for his own body while physically matching up with some of the best players in the Big 12. Despite starting just four games, Love, a redshirt freshman, finished with 36 tackles and a couple of monster games. Please see LOOK BACK, page 10B

Juco cornerback commits to KU By Matt Tait mtait@ljworld.com

Hard-hitting Cassius Sendish became the most recent junior-college standout to pledge his services to the Kansas University football team, orally committing to KU coach Charlie Weis on Monday. Sendish, a 6-foot-2, 190-pound cornerback from Arizona Western Community College, chose Kansas over of- Sendish fers from five other BCS-conference schools including Kansas State and Iowa State. With multiple starting spots open in KUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s secondary, Sendish figures to have a shot to step into immediate playing time, and he believes heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ready. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like to play against no-huddle teams, teams that like to throw the ball and spread the defense out,â&#x20AC;?

Patriots hammer Houston FOXBOROUGH, MASS. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Look out. That familiar sight is the New England Patriots romping through December, looking like a Super Bowl team. The Patriots rolled over Houston 42-14 on Monday night, stamping themselves once again as the team to fear in the AFC â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and making the Texans look like pretenders. Tom Brady threw for four touchdowns and 296 yards as New England manhandled the team with the leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best record. The Patriots (10-3), who already own the AFC East title, won their seventh straight and moved one game behind the Texans (11-2) for the conferenceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top seed. A match-up of the top two scoring teams in the league was a mismatch from the outset. It took take New England only one possession to start its scoring barrage as the Patriots surpassed their average of 35.8 points per game. Wes Welkerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 31-yard punt return and 25-yard reception â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the 107th straight game heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s had a catch â&#x20AC;&#x201D; led to Aaron Hernandezâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seven-yard score. That gave Brady 45 consecutive games with a TD pass, third longest in NFL history. It also set the tone. Houston, which had won six straight, threatened on its next series, only to have Matt Schaub force a ball into double coverage in the Patriotsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; end zone. Devin McCourty picked it off and returned it 19 yards, setting up more pinpoint throws by Brady, who finished 21-of-35. He couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t miss if he tried, his receivers were so uncovered: Brandon Lloyd for 14 yards, Danny Woodhead for 18, Hernandez for 13, then Lloyd for the 37-yard TD to make it 14-0. Texans defensive coordinator Wade Phillips could only shake his head in disgust at his playersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; inability to challenge the Patriots. It got worse. At the end of a 70-yard drive helped by a 26-yard interference call on Danieal Manning, no Texans were lined up to Bradyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s left in front of Hernandez. A quick snap, a quicker pass and the tight end waltzed into the end zone.

Petrino gets back in saddle at Western Ky. BOWLING GREEN, KY. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Now that Bobby Petrino is back in the coaching ranks, he wants to make the most of his second chance. Petrino was introduced Monday as Western Kentuckyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new head football coach. The 51-year-old was fired by Arkansas in April for a â&#x20AC;&#x153;pattern of misleadingâ&#x20AC;? behavior following an accident in which the coach was injured while riding a motorcycle with his mistress as a passenger. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At this point in my career, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about getting back and coaching players,â&#x20AC;? Petrino said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It just happened to open up at a place we love. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hope it can be as long as possibleâ&#x20AC;? Petrino had a 34-17 record at Arkansas before he was dismissed in the wake of the scandal. Petrino had an affair with former Razorback volleyball player Jessica Dorrell, who he later hired as a football assistant had gave $20,000 in gifts. Petrino said initially he was the only person on the motorcycle but later admitted to Dorrellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s presence. Now he is getting another shot at coaching in the college ranks, replacing Willie Taggart, who left WKU last week to become South Floridaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coach. Petrino, 75-26 overall as a college head coach, said he is looking forward to â&#x20AC;&#x153;building on the standardsâ&#x20AC;? that Taggart established.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL

Colorado lures SJSU coach BOULDER, COLO. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Mike MacIntyreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inaugural meeting with his new team lasted just long enough to leave his players with this thought: Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s turned around one downtrodden program and he can do the same at Colorado. Not someday, either, but starting next season. The 47-year-old coach revived a San Jose State football team in short order. Now, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll try to fix the beleaguered Buffaloes, who are coming off their worst season in the 123-year history of the program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a long way to go. But Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been there before and I know what to do,â&#x20AC;? MacIntyre told a room full of boosters and media Monday night after agreeing to a five-year deal worth $2 million a season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no reason Colorado shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be at the top of the conference and competing year in and year out.â&#x20AC;? His hiring ends a two-week search by Colorado that included a rejection by its first choice, Butch Jones. MacIntyre inherits a squad thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coming off a 1-11 record this year that led to the firing of Jon Embree. MacIntyre, the son of former Vanderbilt coach George MacIntyre, was 16-21 in three years as a head coach at San Jose State after serving as Dukeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defensive coordinator and working as a secondary coach for the Dallas Cowboys and New York Jets.

UTEP hires ex-Miner Kugler EL PASO, TEXAS â&#x20AC;&#x201D; UTEP hired Sean Kugler as its new coach Monday, bringing in a former Minersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; player and coach to replace the retired Mike Price. Kugler spent almost three years as the Pittsburgh Steelersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; offensive line coach, following stints with the Buffalo Bills and Detroit Lions. He also worked at Boise State. He played for current UTEP athletic director Bob Stull, graduating in 1988, and later coached at the school for eight seasons.

Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe out KANSAS CITY, MO. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe will miss next weekendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game at Oakland with a rib injury, and coach Romeo Crennel said Monday that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s possible Kansas Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leading receiver could be out the rest of the year. Bowe went to the locker room after the first quarter of Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s loss in Cleveland with what the team announced as a rib issue. He didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t return. Bowe, who is playing this season on a $9.5 million contract after getting franchised by the Chiefs, is once again leading the team in receptions. He has 59 catches for 801 yards and three touchdowns. Crennel said safeties Abe Elam (quadriceps) and Kendrick Lewis (shoulder), left tackle Branden Albert (back) and running back Cyrus Gray (neck) will receive treatment before deciding whether they can play Oakland.

Hoyas make short work of Longwood Otto Porter scored a careerhigh 22 points, added seven assists and four steals and returned after taking an apparent hit to the head during the second half. The point total for Georgetown (8-1) against Longwood (2-8) was much bigger than the Hoyas managed in two of their last three wins. They beat Ten-

nessee 37-36 and Towson 46-40 around a 64-41 win over Texas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you look at that last game, the ball didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go in, and so you have to fix that,â&#x20AC;? Georgetown coach John Thompson III said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But most of the looks we got were wide open shots. Markel Starks was 4-for-5 from three-point range and had 17 points for the Hoyas.

Royals trade for ace in effort to win now KANSAS CITY, MO. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; When James Shields broke into the big leagues with Tampa Bay, the Rays were no better than the Kansas City Royals. They lost more than 100 games his first season and fared little better the following year. But by his third season as a starter, the Rays had finally turned the corner, many of their prized prospects forming the nucleus of a team that upstaged AL East stalwarts Boston and the Yankees and advanced all the way to the World Series. Now, after a blockbuster deal that sent Shields and fellow right-hander Wade Davis to the Royals late Sunday, the former All-Star pitcher believes everything is in place for Kansas City to replicate the Raysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; success. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Royals are definitely on the right track,â&#x20AC;? Shields said Monday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They definitely remind me of our â&#x20AC;&#x2122;07 season going into our â&#x20AC;&#x2122;08 season in the Rays organization, and I think thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good possibility we can step in that direction. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been there when weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve lost 100 games before. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve also won 96, 97 games before, and I think me and Wade bring a little of that to the table, knowing how to win and what it takes to win.â&#x20AC;? The Royals havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t known what thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like in years. Despite the matriculation of their best prospects to the big-league club, the Royals still struggled to a 72-90 record and a third-place finish in the weak AL Central last season. It was their ninth consecutive losing season, and extended to 27 the number of years itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been since the franchise last played in the postseason. The biggest reason for the lousy finish was a dearth of starting pitching, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something that general manager Dayton Moore has been aggressively trying to resolve this offseason. Along with acquiring Shields and Davis in arguably the biggest move his tenure, Moore also resigned Jeremy Guthrie to a $25 million, three-year deal and acquired Ervin Santana and his $12 million salary from the Los Angeles Angels. That means Kansas Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top four starters next season werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t on their opening day roster this past year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our goal is to add as much pitching depth as we can as every organization tends to do, especially this time of year,â&#x20AC;? said Moore, adding that Bruce Chen, Luke Hochevar and Luis Mendoza could compete for the final job in spring training.

FORMER TAMPA BAY PITCHER JAMES SHIELDS REACTS after retiring a batter in this file photo from Sept. 3 in St. Petersburg, Fla. Shields was traded to the Kansas City Royals on Sunday as Royals GM Dayton Moore continued to try to bolster the clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s starting rotation. lipe Paulino, who are both coming off Tommy John surgery this past summer, could also wrestle the job away when they return sometime during the middle of the season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It looks like a good mix of people, I think, with Shields and Santana â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen Guthrie pitch for a couple years with the Orioles,â&#x20AC;? Davis said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not a 10-year veteran or a coach, but I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good mix of people.â&#x20AC;? The Royals certainly mortgaged their future to put it together. Tampa Bayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest prize in the six-player swap is undoubtedly outfielder Wil Myers, widely regarded as the top prospect in the minors. The 22-year-old hit .314 with 37 homers and 109 RBIs last season, and he starred during the All-Star Futures Game hosted by Kansas City, putting together a pair of hits and driving in three runs. Moore said he tried to keep Myers out of the deal, but he also understood that â&#x20AC;&#x153;you have to give up something to get something,â&#x20AC;? so he parted with one of the gameâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top prospects. He also sent along righthander Jake Odorizzi, the Royalsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; top pitching prospect, left-hander Mike Montgomery and third baseman Patrick Leonard to Tampa Bay. Kansas City also will receive another player or cash. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you get a chance to upgrade and get a pitcher the caliber of James Shields and Wade Davis,

we felt it was the right thing for us to do for our team today and going forward,â&#x20AC;? Moore said. The Royals have made a significant financial commitment to winning this season. Along with taking on Santanaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hefty contract, the Royals will pay Shields $10.5 million this season while holding a club option of $12 million with a $1 million buyout for next season. Davis is due to make $2.8 million this season and $4.8 million in 2014, with the Royals holding options on the next three years. Shields said he relishes the opportunity to return to the role of franchise ace. It was the same role he had his first few years in Tampa Bay, before David Price and others blossomed, and a role in which he feels comfortable. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s logged at least 200 innings six consecutive seasons, has 14 complete games over the past two years, and his 3.89 ERA for his career makes him the most effective starter in the Royalsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; new-look rotation. Kansas City starters combined for a 5.01 ERA last season, fifth-worst in the big leagues. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Starting pitching, I think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where it starts,â&#x20AC;? Shields said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What the Rays did the last couple years, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been about starting pitching and defense. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the key to success. Hopefully me and Wade can get the job done.â&#x20AC;?

sor, it turned out Jane had already lodged a complaint about Sara, and instead of listening to what Sara had to say, they fired her. Sara was a dependable, dedicated worker who was loved by the kids. We think Jane sensed Sara’s growing dissatisfaction and struck first. Sara’s dismissal has made the rest of us afraid to say anything to upper management for fear of getting the same treatment. What should we do? — Worried for the Kids Dear Worried: You need to register a com-

2-dimensional performances that endure It’s funny what endures — and what doesn’t. I’m often struck by the fact that several generations who have never seen Fred Astaire dance or even watched his movies know him from his voice-over in the 1970 holiday special “Santa Claus Is Comin’ to Town” (7 p.m., ABC). The same might be said of Boris Karloff (“Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas”) or Jimmy Durante (”Frosty the Snowman”). Each of these talents, Hollywood icons in their own right, probably spent scant hours in a recording booth at the tail end of their careers. Well past middle age, they contributed to a kids’ holiday cartoon, a genre not known for its extended shelf life. They had no idea that 40 years on, long after their departure, they would still be finding an audience. It makes you wonder about what gets remembered. And what gets forgotten. Other holiday specials include “A Muppets Christmas: Letters to Santa” (8 p.m., CW), from 2008. It includes cameos from Whoopi Goldberg, as well as “Sopranos” regulars Steve Schirripa and Tony Sirico. I have a feeling that this special will probably not ensure their television immortality.

Tonight’s holiday highlights:

When “The Santa Clause” (6 p.m., ABC Family) was No. 1 at the box office in 1994, star Tim Allen’s TV show “Home Improvement” was a ratings smash and he had a comedy memoir (”Don’t Stand Too Close to a Naked Man”) on the best-seller list.

A little girl’s (Natalie Wood) skepticism is put to rest in the 1947 fantasy “Miracle on 34th Street” (7 p.m., AMC).

A couple of girls scheme to bring snow to Los Angeles in the 2000 fantasy “The Ultimate Christmas Present” (7:30 p.m., Disney). Tonight’s other highlights:

The semi-finalists face the music on “The Voice” (7 p.m., NBC).

Howie Mandel hosts “Take It All” (8 p.m., NBC).

The investigation into a microbrewer’s murder leads the team to a virtual world on “Rizzoli & Isles” (8 p.m., TNT).

Katherine knows more than she lets on about a showgirl’s murder on “Vegas” (9 p.m., CBS).

Medical woes for Kristina and Adam on “Parenthood” (9 p.m., NBC).

Sheldon experiences bliss on “Private Practice” (9 p.m., ABC).

A rare bottle of wine proves difficult to uncork on “Leverage” (9 p.m., TNT)

BIRTHDAYS Actress Rita Moreno is 81. Actress Donna Mills is 70. Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., is 69. Singer Brenda Lee is 68. Actress Teri Garr is 65. Rock musician Nikki Sixx (Motley Crue) is 54.

plaint about Jane in a large enough group that no one’s job is threatened. First document instances of mistreatment or inappropriate behavior with the children. Then several of you should speak to Jane’s superior, together, and present your record of evidence. Don’t make it personal.

Despite the fact that Harrison is a wonderful man — honest, funny, handsome, loyal and hardworking — there is one thing I can’t get past: He is terribly underendowed, if you get my drift. I’m embarrassed to even think of complaining about this, but it affects the whole lovemaking thing. I’ve always had a strong sex drive, and the lack of, um, size is

For Tuesday, Dec. 11: This year your intensity has an impact, especially on those you know. Be sure to show your compassion when making strong statements.

It’s as petty as a man saying his girlfriend is great, but she’s flat-chested, so she’s out. But obviously it’s bothering me enough to write. What do you think? — Another Little Thing in the Way Dear Little Thing: We won’t get into the “size doesn’t matter” discussion, because it obviously matters to you. First, try Kegel exercises (talk to your gynecologist for information). It is also possible to find greater satisfaction through different positions and techniques and the use of sex toys. But only you can determine how important this is to your relationship. If you truly love Harrison, this is something manageable. Otherwise, it’s simply a source of frustration.

Dear Annie: I work in the aftercare program of a highly regarded private school. It’s a part-time job at minimum wage, but the kids are great, and I am grateful to be employed. My problem is with the supervisor of the program. “Jane” constantly changes our group assignments, putting us with a different age group almost every day. This makes it difficult for the kids to bond with us. Even worse, Jane sometimes subs if one of the regular caretakers is absent, and she is terrible with the kids. She frequently loses her temper and yells at them, and I overheard her tell one little boy that he was “bad” when he misbehaved. And several of us were present when she used racial slurs about some of the children. One of my co-workers, “Sara,” finally decided she had to speak up, but when she went to Jane’s supervi-

KANSAS BASKETBALL NOTEBOOK

Spirited victory helps Self preach energy By Gary Bedore gbedore@ljworld.com

Finally, thanks to his Kansas University basketball team’s spirited effort in Saturday’s 90-54 victory over Colorado, Bill Self possesses some game film that’s pleasing to the eyes. “We have shown them a lot of tape (this season). It hasn’t been very positive the majority of things we’ve shown. (We say), ‘Look at this. Is this the best we’ve got?’” KU coach Self said on Monday’s Big 12 coaches teleconference. “Now we can show tape from the other day saying, ‘We’ve got to guard this better, but a lot of times effort and energy make up for the mistakes.’ “I think everybody tries hard. The teams that give the appearance of playing the hardest are always

On Saturday it became fun for the kids. That’s something we have to bottle. We are not going to be a pretty team to watch all the time. ... we’ve got to be high-energy, high-octane-type personality. If we do that, good things will happen.” — Kansas University men’s basketball coach Bill Self the teams playing with the most energy and having the most fun, and that’s what we had Saturday,” Self added. KU has had some ugly victories en route to a 7-1 record and No. 9 national ranking.

“The mistakes we made defensively against Colorado ... we made up for them with four or six hands trying to steal every ball, two guys trying to block every shot, guys diving on the floor,” Self said on Monday’s “Hawk Talk” radio show. “I’m not sure we played a lot better. I just think we’ve been duds until Saturday. On Saturday it became fun for the kids. That’s something we have to bottle. We are not going to be a pretty team to watch all the time. We can do some good things, but what we’ve got to do, we’ve got to be high-energy, highoctane-type personality. If we do that, good things will happen.” Senior forward Kevin Young provided a huge spark. He scored 16 points off 8-of-9 shooting with eight rebounds, two steals

and two assists in 20 minutes. “He had energy. He didn’t do many things where you look and say, ‘His stroke looked great or this or that,’” Self said. “Basically it was his energy, his hustle. He was terrific. His ball screen defense was better. So was Jeff’s,” Self added of center Jeff Withey. For the year, the 6-foot8, 190-pound Young has averaged 6.3 points and 6.4 rebounds in 18.6 minutes a game. “We were talking today ... it would be really great to bring Kevin off the bench,” Self said of the player who has started five of seven games, missing one game because of injury. “He brings energy off the bench. He’s playing so well, you can’t afford to do that. We’ve got to have Jamari (Traylor), Perry (El-

lis) and Naadir (Tharpe) more so than anybody else bring energy into the game and be assertive as opposed to just trying to fit in. “Quit worrying about screwing up. Quit worrying about trying to score points. Just rebound, defend, dive on the floor, do the things that will give you confidence. One thing about Kevin, he’s the best talker we have. He won’t shut up. That’s contagious and good. A team that doesn’t talk can’t play,” Self added. “Bring in young kids who are unsure, (and) they don’t open their mouths, all of a sudden you lose a little bit of talking and energy, and it doesn’t look near as crisp. (Young) guys aren’t used to doing that. Our guys can learn from Kevin in that regard.” The Jayhawks, who are in final exams this week,

practiced Monday. They will practice today, take a day off Wednesday, then practice again Thursday and Friday in preparation for Saturday’s game against Belmont (6 p.m., Allen Fieldhouse). Belmont, of the Ohio Valley Conference, takes a 6-2 record into Thursday’s game against Middle Tennessee State in Belmont’s arena in Nashville. “It’s a huge week for us,” Self said. “Basketballwise, we need to get better. I don’t know if you get a lot better in finals week. You maintain, hopefully. Hopefully those guys are exhausted and tired staying up late studying like everybody else is (in student body). We need a good week academically this week and again in May. Those two weeks are as important as any weeks all year.”
