Autopsy results pending as KU student mourned By Stephen Montemayor

Many people saw Gianfranco Villagomez-Saldana leave a party near Ninth and Michigan streets early Saturday morning, walking alone out into the cold, but no one yet knows what led to his death a few blocks away, according to Sgt. Trent McKinley, a Lawrence Police Department spokesman. As the Kansas University community mourned the

death of Villagomez-Saldana, a 23-year-old student from Peru, police said they were awaiting autopsy results later this week to learn the cause of death. They do not at this point suspect foul play, McKinley said. McKinley said that Villagomez-Saldana was with a group of fellow international students who gathered at a home at Ninth and Michigan after having dinner at a local restaurant. Police have talked to many of the 30 or so people thought to have

attended the party. They’ve received conflicting reports about whether Villagomez-Saldana was seen drinking. “We don’t Villagomezknow at this Saldana point in time if he was intoxicated,” McKinley said, “or if he was aware of his surroundings or not. He had been in town for years.”

Nor do police know why he left the party alone, McKinley said. A nearby homeowner, who declined to be interviewed, found the man’s body on Monday afternoon behind her house in the 800 block of Avalon Road, a dead end street at the west edge of the Village Square apartment complex. The house backs up to a steeply sloped wooded area that connects to backyards of homes on the next street uphill, Broad-

view Drive. With no alleyway or sidewalk, the only way to access the area would be through yards. When Villagomez-Saldana was first reported missing Saturday evening by his girlfriend, Donna Jo Harkrider, he was described as last seen wearing a blue shirt with a KU Jayhawk logo on it, a long sleeve gray shirt, a black jacket, jeans and white tennis shoes.

City hears lighting plan concerns for complex By Chad Lawhorn

City leaders and a neighbor to the Rock Chalk Park sports complex will meet in the coming days after city officials conceded Tuesday that a lighting plan for the complex hadn’t been properly approved. “This clearly has been botched,” said Richard Hird, a Lawrence attorney who represents Jack Graham, who lives just east of the Rock Chalk Park site near

Sixth Street and the South Lawrence Trafficway. City commissioners at their Tuesday evening meeting were told by the city’s planning director that the 100-foot tall light poles for the softball, track and field and soccer fields at Rock Chalk Park already have been installed, even though the City Commission hadn’t yet approved a lighting plan for the project. When the project was approved by commissioners earlier this year, it was done so with spe-

cific conditions, including that a lighting plan would be approved by comCITY missioners COMMISSION before any building permits would be issued for the project. “I apologize for this failure to follow the proper procedure,” Mayor Mike Dever told Graham during the meeting.

The project is being built by a firm led by Lawrence businessman Thomas Fritzel, who previously has been criticized for moving ahead on projects without proper city approval. In 2011, Fritzel was involved in a project that installed artificial turf at an apartment complex, despite not having city code approval for the turf. Last year, Fritzel agreed to make a $50,000 donation to a historic preservation fund to resolve a dispute regarding whether he

The Kansas State Board of Education today effectively dropped out of a multistate consortium that is developing student assessments aligned to the controversial new Common Core standards for reading and math. Instead, the board voted to continue contracting with Kansas University’s Center for Educational Testing and Evaluation to design and administer the tests that students take each year to measure how well the schools themselves are meeting state and federal performance standards. That’s the same group that has developed and administered state assessments for Kansas schools for the last several years. The 8-2 vote came after Waugh a lengthy discussion among board members. And it came only after the board deadlocked in a 5-5 tie on the recommendation of an advisory committee to use the SmarterBalanced Assessment Consortium as the primary test to be given each year to students in grades 3 through 8, and once in high school.

Interim director of Headquarters focusing on ‘firm business footing’ By Giles Bruce

Steve Lopes was recently assigned the task of coming up with a job description for an interim director of Headquarters Counseling Center, the Lawrence-based crisis hotline. During his presentation to its board of directors, Lopes, a volunteer at Headquarters for the past two years, let it slip that he’d be will-

Janet Waugh, D-Kansas City, one of three members who switched their vote after the motion to go with SmarterBalance failed. “I feel we need to adopt SmarterBalanced, however I also feel we need to get off dead center.” Willard B u t b o a r d member Ken Willard, RHutchinson, said sticking with KU to develop and administer the tests would be safer politically, mainly because that option is expected to cost only about $5.1 million a year, once the test is fully developed. That’s about half a million dollars more than KU currently charges the state for testing services. But it’s $1.3 million less than it would have cost to contract with SmarterBalanced. “There is a political component to this decision,” Willard said. “There will be people weighing in on this across the street (in the Kansas Statehouse) after our decision is made.” Carolyn Campbell, DTopeka, whose district includes Lawrence, said she could not support dropping out of the SmarterBalanced project, saying the political concerns did not matter to her. “I’ve always put the children first and what is best for them,” Campbell said. Although the CETE tests will be less expensive than SmarterBalanced, officials noted that they also won’t have as many kinds of “technology-enhanced”

items that require students to use higher-level problem solving and critical thinking skills. They will also have fewer “adaptive” features, which require students to show competency at one set of knowledge or skills before they proceed to the next level. In addition, though, deputy education commissioner Brad Neuenswander said the Kansas Board of Regents has not yet determined whether the CETE exams will meet their standards for gaining entrance into credit-bearing courses. But CETE officials said they are hopeful of getting approval from the higher education community. “CETE is pleased to continue to develop the next-generation assessments for Kansas,” said Marianne Pearie, co-director of the center. “We intend to reach out to the Board of Regents and hope to involve them in developing a test in (English language arts) and math at the high school level that truly measures a student’s academic readiness for post-secondary education.” Education Commissioner Diane DeBacker said after the vote that she would immediately call officials at SmarterBalanced and inform them that Kansas will no longer serve as a governing state in the consortium.

morning, when Villagomez-Saldana was last seen, the temperature had dipped to 3 degrees with a wind chill of 10 degrees below zero, according to the National Weather Service office in Topeka. Temperatures remained frigid until his body was discovered, with highs of 24 degrees Saturday, 26 degrees Sunday and 19 degrees Monday. But despite the conditions, given the short distance between the party and where VillagomezSaldana was reportedly heading — his girlfriend’s apartment at 11th and Mississippi streets — McKinley said clothing alone shouldn’t have been cause for concern. McKinley called the investigation atypical of cases where no foul play was suspected. “We brought in a lot of personnel on this based on the amount of information we received Saturday night,” McKinley said. Off-duty officers were called in Sunday and surveillance footage from nearby businesses was reviewed. Meanwhile, a search party convened on Sunday and Monday before the Avalon Road homeowner found Villagomez-Saldana’s body. Kansas University officials released statements mourning the student’s death. “On behalf of the entire University of Kansas community, I offer my condolences to the family and friends of Gianfranco

Scott McCullough, the city’s planning director, said a lighting plan was submitted to the city shortly after the lights were installed. He said a review of the plan found the lighting plan fell within the city’s code to protect adjacent property from adverse impacts. But City Commissioner Jeremy Farmer said he’s open to the idea of the city paying for an independent study. “We goofed up here,” Farmer said of the city’s approval process. “We said we were going to do one thing and we didn’t do it.

Villagomez-Saldana,” said Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little. “His loved ones who searched long hours over these past frigid days for a sign of hope also are grieving now, and my thoughts are with them as well.” Michael Branicky, dean of the School of Engineering, said: “The School of Engineering family is deeply saddened by news of the passing of one of our students. Gianfranco was a kind and beloved student with a keen intellect and a promising future. He was an active member of the Society of Professional Hispanic Engineers. We ask the School of Engineering community to come together to support one another at this difficult time. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his friends and family for their loss.” Andrea Herstowski, associate professor and interim chair of the department of design, said: “This news is heartbreaking. Gianfranco was a lovely young man with a bright smile and a warm heart.

Our thoughts and sympathy go out to all who knew and loved him. He was a gifted young man who was generous with his time and talents, and he will be missed.” Since September 2012, Villagomez-Saldana had worked in the KU Libraries’ International Area Studies as a student assistant for the Spanish, Portuguese, Latin American and Caribbean area, the university said. “Gianfranco brought a broad range of skills and talents to his work,” said Lorraine J. Haricombe, dean of libraries. “He was creative, detail-oriented and dedicated to his studies. Our library colleagues will most remember Gianfranco for his outgoing and friendly personality. His charisma and enthusiasm were contagious, and we will miss his presence terribly here in Watson Library. Our hearts to go out to Gianfranco’s family and close friends at this time of immense loss.”

He wants to better market Headquarters and improve its engagement with the community. He intends to expand the agency’s technological reach, including implementing a system by which clients can chat online or text with counselors. Headquarters officials acknowledge that their organization isn’t unique. In a down economy, nonprofits, many with increased demand, are competing for a smaller pool of funding. But they want to be able to paint a more complete picture of the good the organization does and who its callers are, then go to current or potential revenue sources with detailed presentations on why they should fund Headquarters. Headquarters recently received a three-year, renewable federal grant of $480,000 annually to establish the Kansas Youth

Suicide Prevention program. However, the program’s coordinators say only a small percentage of the funds can be spent on Headquarters’ day-to-day operations. Still, Moore, the board president, said that despite the limited ability to tap into that federal grant, it has actually helped keep Headquarters operating as a independent organization, whereas the previous board discussed assimilating with local organizations like Bert Nash Community Mental Health Center and Health Care Access. “Headquarters is going to stay on its own. Headquarters will continue as a separate entity,” Moore said. “This board supports that. We’ve always believed in that.”

KU’s 2014 Common Book has Lawrence roots

Sebelius finalist for Time Person of 2013

Secret Santas

By Ben Unglesbee

Laura Moriarty says you can “pretty much throw a rock at any building� in downtown Lawrence and hit somewhere she worked while writing her first novel. The book’s creation spanned eight years, multiple states, assorted jobs — waitressing, tutoring, nonprofit work and teaching among them — a graduate degree and a writing fellowship. Ten years after its initial publication, Moriarty’s first novel, “The Center of EveryKANSAS thing,� is now UNIVERSITY set to be the Kansas University Common Book for the 2014-15 school year, the university announced Tuesday. Moriarty has taught creative writing at KU as an assistant professor in the English department since 2008. She also went through KU’s creative writing M.F.A. program, partly as a way to finish the book, Moriarty said. The novel, set in an imaginary town in Kansas, follows main character Evelyn Bucknow from girlhood to college. Running through the novel are national and regional issues including poverty, educational opportunity and Reagan-era politics, as well as political issues peculiar to Kansas, such Please see BOOK, page 4A

WICHITA — Feelings are mixed in Kansas over the inclusion of former Gov. Kathleen Sebelius as one of 10 finalists for Time magazine’s Person of the Year award. Democratic Kansas House member Jim Ward told the Wichita Eagle it’s an honor for everyone whenever someone from the state is recognized for influencing major world events. But former Republican Rep. Brenda L a n d w e h r Sebelius called the selection ridiculous and said she couldn’t think of anyone less deserving for the award. Sebelius serves as U.S. secretary of Health and Human Services. She has been in the spotlight since the Oct. 1 problems with the launch of the national health care website. Other finalists include Pope Francis, Texas tea party Republican Ted Cruz, performer Miley Cyrus and whistleblower Edward Snowden.

But she said she feels a “connection with Kansas� and its residents. “I’m really excited to talk about the book with people from this area,� she said. Not least because Kansans, unlike many readers and reviewers on the coasts, “won’t impose any weird Wizard of Oz imagery� on the novel,

Moriarty joked. The book is the first novel chosen since the Common Book program started in 2012. As part of the program, all incoming students will receive a copy. This year’s chosen book, “The Worst Hard Time,� culminated in a campus visit by its author, Timothy Egan. Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little said in a statement she hopes the choice of “The Center of Everything� will provide students an opportunity for in-depth interaction with a campus author. Moriarty anticipates visiting classes, giving readings and delivering seminar talks on her novel as part of the Common Book fare.

Fire officials are investigating the cause of a blaze that caused an estimated $135,000 in damages to a west Lawrence home Tuesday morning. Lawrence-Douglas County Fire Medical crews arrived at 931 Chalk Hill Court about 11 a.m. and had the fire under control in about 25 minutes, Chief Mark Bradford said. The department determined the fire to be an accident due to improper discarding of fireplace ashes in a combustible container placed outside the home, according to a

statement from the city of Lawrence. A woman and her dog were evacuated from the house. Her husband and son were not home at the time of the fire, Bradford said. No civilian or fire service injuries were reported, the statement said. Fire and smoke were seen extending through the roof from the rear of the two-story, single family home, the statement said. Neighbor Jim Ward said he called 911 after the woman told him she had tried to put out an electric heater fire with a fire extinguisher but was unsuccessful.

TOPEKA — The Kansas Supreme Court on Tuesday denied a request by former Attorney General Phill Kline for a new hearing considering modifying a ruling that indefinitely suspended his law license. The denial was signed by Justice Dan Biles on behalf of the seven-member court. Kline’s attorney Tom Condit filed the motion with the court last week. Condit, who didn’t immediately return messages seeking comment, argued that investigators in Kline’s case were biased and facts about the former attorney general’s investigations into abortions were misrepresented.

Man sentenced in 6-month old’s death MANHATTAN — A 19-year-old Kansas man has been sentenced to nearly 27 years in prison for his role in the death of a 6-month-old boy. 1350 KMAN reports Michael Dechant of Ogden was sentenced Monday for second-degree murder in the shaking death of his girlfriend’s son earlier this year. Prosecutors say Dechant violently shook Dominick Lubrano on March 15. The baby died three days later. Dechant’s girlfriend, Sabrina Lubrano, said she left Dominick briefly with Dechant to run an errand.

Lubrano said she returned to find a neighbor trying to revive her baby with CPR.

Emporia CFO pleads guilty to embezzling TOPEKA — The former chief financial officer of an Emporia manufacturing firm has pleaded guilty to embezzling nearly $266,000 from the company. The office of the U.S. Attorney for Kansas says in a release that 58-yearold Sandra Moore, former CFO of Sauder Custom Fabrication, pleaded guilty Monday to one count of embezzlement and admitted the crimes began in 2008 when she was CFO. Moore is scheduled to be sentenced March 3 and faces up to 10 years in federal prison and a fine up to $250,000.

Man pleads guilty in Manhattan arson WICHITA — A 30-yearold Manhattan man has pleaded guilty to being an accessory after the fact in a fatal arson. U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said in a release that Gavin Taylor Hairgrove pleaded guilty Monday for his role in a Feb. 6 fire at a Manhattan apartment building. One person, Vansanta Pallem, died as a result of inhaling gases from the fire. Hairgrove faces up to 15 years in prison. His sentencing is scheduled for Feb. 24.

Board of Education approves new handwriting standards By Peter Hancock

The Kansas State Board of Education voted unanimously today to approve new standards for handwriting, including a statement that the board â&#x20AC;&#x153;expectsâ&#x20AC;? schools to ensure that all students can write legibly in cursive and read material written in cursive. The handwriting standards are considered

â&#x20AC;&#x153;modelâ&#x20AC;? standards because studies, and student perfor- want all districts to know districts mance is not used as a ba- we strongly encourage all are not resis for accrediting schools. students be able to write quired to Still, several board legibly in cursive.â&#x20AC;? implement members said it was imKansas is one of only them. portant to send a message a handful of states that T h e to districts that the board still calls for instruction state does believes penmanship and in handwriting.

math, which put more emphasis on keyboarding and technology and make almost no mention of handwriting. Greg Bonsignore, a Lawrence â&#x20AC;&#x153;teacher on special assignmentâ&#x20AC;? who works with elementary teachers on English language arts curriculum, said the issue for teachers is finding the time to teach handwriting, along with the keyboard-

ing skills required under Common Core. John Boesen, a handwriting analyst from Salina, told the state board on Tuesday that learning to write helps develop cognitive and motor skills, and that it is still an important form of communication. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The pen is mightier than the keyboard,â&#x20AC;? Boesen said.

museumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s future, Cosmosphere president Jim Remar said. Ticket sales at the attraction dropped from 245,890 to 193,525 in 2012. That was the first year venue visits dropped below 200,000 since at least 1992, The Hutchinson News reported Monday.

These numbers represent how many of the Cosmosphereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s venues people visit, such as the planetarium and the theater, rather than actual visitors, which the Cosmosphere doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t count. Verner Johnson is scheduled to present its recommendations by March.

BRIEFLY Police search for hit-and-run driver The Lawrence Police Department is searching for the driver in a hit-andrun accident that left one person with a minor injury Tuesday afternoon. The two-vehicle accident occurred shortly after 3 p.m. along the 1000 block of Connecticut Street. Sgt. Troy Squire, an LPD spokesperson, could not provide a narrative of the accident, but said one driver fled the scene. Squire said the fleeing

vehicle was later located a block away, but a search is still on for the driver. A specific description of the suspect or the vehicle was not available Tuesday evening.

Suspect sought in AutoZone robbery Lawrence police are searching for a suspect after an armed robbery occurred at an AutoZone on the 2700 block of Iowa Street Tuesday night. Sgt. Ted Bordman, a Lawrence Police Depart-

ment spokesperson, said a man walked into the business and advised an employee that he had a firearm, which was also partially displayed. The suspect left with cash and a â&#x20AC;&#x153;smallâ&#x20AC;? amount of merchandise. A call to police was made at about 8:30 p.m. Bordman described the suspect to be in his mid20s, approximately 5-foot-8 and 150 pounds, wearing a black hoodie, dark pants and dark shoes. The suspect was last seen on foot, heading north-

east from the AutoZone, Bordman said.

Cosmosphere hires planning consultant HUTCHINSON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Kansas Cosmosphere has hired a consultant to help determine why attendance is falling at the space attraction in Hutchinson. The center spent $122,000 to hire Bostonbased Verner Johnson Inc., museum architects and planners, to study its programs and operations, and to provide a plan for the

Not since Bob Stempel was CEO in the early 1990s has the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest automaker been led by an auto engineer, let alone one who worked her way up from the factory floor.

The mail still provides an important lifeline between many Alaska communities not connected to the road system and the outside world. Juneau and Ketchikan, for example, are accessible only by air and water. Inclement weather could wreak havoc on flights and deliveries.

BRIEFLY Kerry: Diplomacy can solve Iran crisis WASHINGTON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Obama administration and Congress clashed Tuesday over the historic nuclear deal with Iran, exposing deep rifts over a U.S. pledge to refrain from any new sanctions over the next six months in exchange for concessions on enriching uranium. In his first congressional testimony since last monthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Geneva agreement, Secretary of State John Kerry defended the diplomacy as having halted and rolled back central elements of Iranâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nuclear program for the first time. He pleaded with Democrats and Republicans alike

not to scuttle the chances of a peaceful resolution. Kerryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s appearance came as lawmakers increasingly threatened to undermine the six-month interim pact, which gives Iran $7 billion in sanctions relief over the next half-year in exchange for the Islamic republicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s neutralizing its higher-enriched uranium stockpiles.

New rule to limit banksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; risky trading WASHINGTON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; U.S. regulators have taken a major step toward reining in high-risk trading on Wall Street, banning the largest banks from trading for their

own profit in most cases. It took three years to write and adopt the Volcker Rule, one of the most critical changes to financial laws in the wake of the 2008 banking crisis. The Federal Reserve and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency each voted Tuesday to adopt it. At its heart, the rule seeks to ban banks from almost all proprietary trading, which has been very lucrative for big banks like JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America and Citigroup.

ANTI GOVERNMENT PROTESTERS DANCE during a rally outside Government house, which houses Thailand prime minister Yingluck Shinawatraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office, in Bangkok, Thailand, Tuesday. Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra said she would not resign ahead of national elections set for Feb. 2, despite opposition demands she step down as the caretaker head of government.

Thai democracy enters dangerous new crossroads By Todd Pitman

cal fight to oust Thailandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s elected prime minister are trying to establish what amounts to a parallel government â&#x20AC;&#x201D; one complete with â&#x20AC;&#x153;security volunteersâ&#x20AC;? to replace the police, a foreign policy of their own and a central committee that has already begun issuing audacious orders. Among the most brazen: a demand Tuesday that caretaker premier Yingluck Shinawatra be prosecuted for â&#x20AC;&#x153;insurrection,â&#x20AC;? and another calling on the public to â&#x20AC;&#x153;closely monitorâ&#x20AC;? her familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s movements. Leading academics have slammed the scheme as undemocratic and unconstitutional. Critics have called its leader, Suthep Thaugsuban, delusional. But the ex-lawmakerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bid to seize power is backed by many in Bangkok and could become reality if the military or the judiciary intervenes, as they have in the past. Analysts say this Southeast Asian nation is at a dangerous new crossroads that could drag on, and end with more bloodshed. The protesters accuse Yingluckâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s government of abuse of power and say her party has used its electoral majority to impose its will on a minority. They say Yingluck is merely a proxy for her billionaire brother, former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra, who lives in selfimposed exile to avoid jail time for a corruption conviction but still wields immense influence from abroad. Thaksin was deposed in a 2006 army coup that laid bare a deeper societal conflict. On one side are Thailandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largely urban upper and middle classes, who along with staunch royalists want to end the Shinawatra familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grip on power. On

the other side are the rural poor, who back the Shinawatras because they benefited policies that have brought them everything from electricity to free healthcare. The coup triggered years of political upheaval and dramatic changes in government have underscored the power of Bangkokâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s elite. Controversial judicial rulings removed two pro-Thaksin prime ministers in 2008, one of whom never set foot in his Government House office: He worked for 10 weeks out of the VIP lounge of the capitalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s old airport until protesters evicted him from there, too. The same year, army-backed parliamentary maneuvering allowed the opposition Democrat Party â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a minority that has not won an election for more than two decades â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to

take power for several years. Yingluck led the ruling Pheu Thai Party to victory in 2011 elections. But anger against her government swelled after the lower house passed an amnesty bill that would have allowed Thaksin to return without going to jail. The measure was rejected in the upper house, and Yingluck has said it will not be revived. Protesters say Pheu Thai lost its right to rule because of its support of the amnesty bill and other legislation they oppose.

Suthep, the protest leader, said late Tuesday that as of now, â&#x20AC;&#x153;there is no government.â&#x20AC;? He said his Peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Democratic Reform Committee would nominate a new prime minister to fill the vacuum, although it has no legal authority to do so.

BERLIN â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been likened to a parachutist trying to land on a mountaintop. Or a person attempting to leap from one speeding car to another. The European Space Agency is planning to land an unmanned spacecraft on a comet next year in an unprecedented and exquisitely tricky mission that has been underway for almost a decade and is about to enter a critical new phase. The agency announced Tuesday that its Rosetta probe, which has been journeying through space since its launch in 2004,

will be awakened from hibernation next month and will aim to drop a lander onto the icy surface of comet 67P/ChuryumovGerasimenko on Nov. 11, 2014. The plan is different from NASAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Deep Impact mission, which used a probe to fire a projectile into a comet in 2005 and create a plume of matter for scientists to study. That was just a drive-by compared with the rendezvous the Europeans are planning. To catch 67P as it orbits the sun at up to 100,000 kph (62,000 mph), Rosetta has made several flybys of Earth, Mars and the sun, using their gravity to accelerate.

Once the spacecraft picked up sufficient speed and was on course to rendezvous with the comet, ESA put Rosetta into hibernation for more than two years to conserve energy. This also gave engineers the time to find workarounds for two glitches that threatened the mission: a problem with two of the four reaction wheels used to turn the spacecraft, and a small helium leak that could affect the thrusters vital for its final maneuvers. For now, scientists have a tense wait to see whether the probe wakes up as planned when its alarm clock goes off at 1000 GMT (5 a.m. EST) on Jan. 20.

Venturing to leadership-starved Mideast

Good start Bookings more than a year out for events at the city’s new recreation center bode well for the facility’s financial future.


ookings for the new city recreation center in far west Lawrence appear to be off to a strong start. City officials hope to have the recreation center open by next July, but they’re being conservative in accepting reservations too close to that date. Nonetheless, the city already has received $70,000 in bookings from two volleyball associations from January 2015 to April 2015. Even better, two of the groups, who have booked a total of 10 weekends at the facility, are from the Kansas City area, which means the city will be attracting dollars from people outside of Lawrence who eat, shop and perhaps stay overnight in the city. Lawrence taxpayers should hope this is the beginning of a trend for the new recreation center. City officials have estimated the annual operating budget for the recreation center will be about $l million, but about $650,000 of that could be raised through rental fees, classes and other activities. Meeting that revenue goal would require the recreation center to host about 32 tournaments and outside events a year. That seemed like an optimistic figure at the time, especially considering the competition from existing facilities in the area. However, the fact that volleyball courts already have been booked more than a year ahead for 10 weekends in 2015, make that estimate look more realistic. The center will have gyms that can be divided into 16 volleyball courts, and city officials also expect to attract a large number of basketball events to the new facility. Basketball groups already are contacting the city but are looking at dates next summer and fall and city officials are hesitant to guarantee the facility will be ready for competition that soon. City officials never expected the new recreation center to break even financially, but the promise of about $3 million in indirect spending the center would attract to the community helped justify the expense. Still, it would be nice if income from outside tournaments would meet or exceed the estimates so that taxpayers don’t have to foot more of the bill for the center’s operating expenses. There appears to be plenty of interest right now in the new center at Rock Chalk Park, which is a great sign. Hopefully, the people who are among the first to book the new gyms will be wellpleased with the center and its services and will become part of an ongoing base of financial support for the facility.

CAIRO — There is something sadly appropriate about arriving in the Mideast on the weekend when the world is mourning Nelson Mandela. Mandela was a visionary who managed to reconcile a long-repressed black majority with the white minority that had ruled them. His name became synonymous with forgiveness, in this case of the new black rulers toward fearful whites. The absence of such visionary leaders is the reason the Arab Spring has turned out so badly. In Egypt, former President Mohammed Morsi won a historic election but was unable to transcend his roots in the secretive Muslim Brotherhood, which terrified more moderate Muslims and Christians. This gave the Egyptian army the opening to remove him. In Syria, frightened Alawites (a sect of Shiite Muslims) and Christians cling to the dictator Bashar Assad because they fear a Sunni Muslim victory will drive them out. No Sunni Mandela exists to calm their fears. Indeed, there is a dearth of Mideast leaders who can or even want to convince other tribes, sects, and clans that they won’t be destroyed if they lose an election, let alone a civil war. So Mideast countries that recently rejoiced in new freedoms have grown weary of democracy and are now pedaling backward toward autocracy — or chaos.

Trudy Rubin

Mideast countries that recently rejoiced in new freedoms have grown weary of democracy and are now pedaling backward toward autocracy — or chaos.” The new Mideast narrative focuses not on democracy, but on how to control jihadi groups, including alQaida, that are flourishing in fractured states such as Libya, Yemen, Iraq, and Syria. Many in the Mideast now claim (as they did before the 2011 revolutions) that most Arab states have only two dismal alternatives to choose from: rule by strongmen or by Islamic extremists. As I travel to Cairo and then to the Turkish-Syrian border, I will be asking Egyptian and Syrian activists whether there is a way out of this trap. In Egypt, at least, there is some possibility of returning toward democracy. A new constitution has just been drafted, and new elections

will be held in the coming months. But the Egyptian military is clearly the most powerful actor in the country, and it may wind up controlling the elections through a front candidate or a long-term lock on the Defense Ministry, which is currently headed by the charismatic army commander Abdel Fattah el-Sissi. A repressive law has been passed against demonstrations, no matter who conducts them. Bloggers, satirists, and young female demonstrators are being jailed. Meanwhile, the Muslim Brotherhood has been banned and its leaders jailed, along with thousands of followers on what often seem to be specious charges. Other Islamist groups remain politically active, but it’s unclear whether they can still be integrated into a democratic Egypt. If that isn’t possible, some Islamists who opted for the ballot could return to violence. I will be talking with youth activists, women, former members of Parliament, generals, and Islamists about Egypt’s future, and whether it’s still possible to design an inclusive system. Since Egypt is a bellwether for the region, what happens there counts. The Syrian situation cries out even more desperately for a Mandela. Assad deliberately targeted secular and moderate Muslim opposition groups, while allowing radical Islamists to operate free-

ly. He has achieved his goal: The moderates, receiving scant military aid from the West, have been decimated, while jihadis flourish. The Syrian dictator tells fearful members of his minority Alawite sect that his demise would lead to their extinction. He tells Christians the same. As for Western governments, he says they need him to combat alQaida. Assad is the anti-Mandela: By cultivating fear and hatred, he has splintered his nation, but he has been able to hold on to power. U.N.sponsored peace talks on Syria are supposed to be held next month in Geneva, but it’s hard to see how they will amount to anything. Assad’s backers, Iran and Russia, show little sign of abandoning their proxy. At best, they may press him to let in more humanitarian aid. President Barack Obama remains uninterested in arming moderate rebels, and it may be too late anyway. I will be speaking with Syrian civil and military activists on the Turkish border to see whether they believe there is still a chance to hold Syria together. Were there an opposition leader with Mandela’s charisma, it might be possible to rally Syrians who want neither a dictator nor al-Qaida. Sadly, there is none.

Spying on game players? Really? Sometimes I find myself wondering whether the American intelligence community secretly takes its inspiration, if not its directions, from old episodes of the classic British comedy show “Monty Python’s Flying Circus.” Just as we are being told by senior intelligence officials that the global terrorist threat is growing at a dangerous rate, we discover from another release of leaked information, courtesy of Edward Snowden, that American and British spy agencies including the CIA, NSA and GCHQ have employed large numbers of their employees to play online games like World of Warcraft in order to monitor whether terrorists are using these games to communicate among themselves. If one can overcome the sense of absurdity that attaches to the notion of CIA agents assuming online gaming roles to seek out terrorist plots, there is, I have to admit, some rational basis for what our intelligence community has been doing. On the other hand, I suppose that one does have to ask whether having the government spying on citizens, many of who play these online games in order to escape from the dreary realities of the 21st century, on the off chance that they

Mike Hoeflich

Snowden’s leaks are making it very clear how out of control the American intelligence community is.” might find an al-Qaida operative who has assumed the role of some fantasy warrior in order to coordinate a terrorist plot hidden in a game, is really worth it. It is becoming increasingly clear that as Americans become more and more dependent on the Internet and other digital media for their work, play and communications, the government has decided to monitor everything it can possibly find, even those places online that are supposed to allow us to indulge our fantasies. In actual fact, I find this kind of intrusive spying not only not funny, but downright frightening. One wonders, for instance, whether the NSA has decided to keep

a record of those online gamers who are particularly adept at killing their opponents? Is their somebody sitting somewhere in a closed room in some sub-basement of an NSA building who has decided that if you are an efficient killing machine in an online game, then you might also be a security risk in real life? As absurd as it sounds, you do have to wonder. It is becoming increasingly clear that the U.S. government’s ire at Snowden is not simply about national security. It is about the fact that Snowden’s leaks are making it very clear how out of control the American intelligence community is. It is not surprising that many of the major technology companies, like Microsoft, Google and Facebook, among others, are now calling for Congress to regulate and limit intelligence agencies’ spying on Americans. These companies realize that ordinary Americans want their privacy and that if the government is going to spy on everything we do, then we will go “off the grid” as much as possible to avoid such blatantly intrusive government actions. As far as I’m concerned, it’s time to unplug the Xbox. — Mike Hoeflich, a distinguished professor in the Kansas University School of Law, writes a regular column for the Journal-World.

To the editor: Recently, perimeter construction on the South Lawrence Trafficway was mentioned in this paper. I’ve heard that 50 or so acres are going to be affected by this road in the wetlands. Over 100 years ago, Haskell students built the channels and canals that will be destroyed here. These students had been taken by coercion away from their reservations, families, cultures and religions to have these parts of their identity destroyed by the assimilation policies of this country and its Christian denominations. That canal area was a reminder of the forced assimilation actions of this country. And yet the beneficiaries of past anti-Indian policy have no problem destroying the reminder of forced labor for the purpose of assimilation. It’s akin to destroying a building at Auschwitz as if nothing happened there either. In Washington, D.C., clergy of all denominations can stand together to speak of the injustice of having a racist NFL mascot. In Douglas County, Kansas, a United Methodist College can act as if native concerns are invisible when remembering what was done in the recent past and some can wrongly repeat the “Win-Win” mantra for their own conscience. Those with no memory sin over and over. Mike Ford, Baldwin City

Troubled youth FLORIDA 67, KANSAS 61

Gators victimize Jayhawks By Gary Bedore

GAINESVILLE, FLA. — Going with four freshman starters for what is believed to be the first time in Kansas University basketball history looked like a fine game plan against Florida on Tuesday night in O’Connell Center. “It wasn’t who we started that was the problem. We were up 10-3,” KU coach Bill Self exclaimed after the Jayhawk group of rookies Joel Embiid, Frank Mason, Wayne Selden and Andrew Wiggins, plus sophomore Perry Ellis, opened strong, then were victimized by a 21-0 run during a 67-61 loss to the Gators. “I think we should have had an electrical shortage and canceled the game after that,” Self added of the early seven-point lead that quickly turned into a 24-10 deficit. “We actually made a couple shots and played pretty well the first five minutes. We were awful after that,” Self said. “When it started going bad (the deficit stretching to 34-16 and 36-21 at half), we didn’t do anything to stop it. I don’t think it was lack of effort. I think anything that can go wrong went wrong.” The No. 13 Jayhawks (6-3) had 16 turnovers the first half in trailing No. 19 Florida (7-2) by 15 at the break. They had 24 turnovers on the night. “We set a record. I think that’s an NCAA record, maybe,” Self said of the 16 turnovers in 20 minutes. “Three

Wiggins gives Kansas hope for future

Tom Keegan

GAINESVILLE, FLA. — Even when athletes look desperately lost, way overmatched, getting worse by the second, it’s tough to count them out when they have the best player on their side and ample time remains on the clock. When all around him looked too green to handle what Kansas University

coach Bill Self likes to call “a big-boy game,” Andrew Wiggins represented hope. He didn’t shy from a physical opponent, and the mistakes he did make were those of aggression, not passivity. Wiggins didn’t play for the winning side Tuesday night in the O’Connell Center, Florida’s on-campus

arena where the Gators defeated KU, 67-61, in front of a jacked sellout crowd of 12,243. But he showed many winning traits and led the Jayhawks back from a deficit that grew as large as 18 points with a few minutes remaining in the first half. Dribbling wildly in transition and missing the mark on passes, Wiggins commit-

LHS girls fall just short, 66-63 By Benton Smith

One of these nights, Lawrence High’s girls basketball team will play in a game that doesn’t come down to the final seconds. And one of these nights, the Lions will leave the court victorious. It just hasn’t happened yet. LHS lost its second straight one-possession game Tuesday night, 66-63, in The Jungle against Junction City. Despite missing 10 of their first 12 field goals and falling behind by 10 in the first quarter, the Lions (0-2) battled back and had a threepoint shot at the buzzer that

could have tied the game and forced overtime. Junior LHS point guard Marissa Pope found freshman Olivia Lemus open near the top of the key with one second left, and Lemus’ three bounced off the rim as the final buzzer sounded. The catch-and-shoot scenario off a sideline inbounds pass looked better than some of Lawrence’s less difficult shots earlier in the fourth quarter, when LHS went 3-for-20 from the floor and 0-for-8 from three-point John Young/Journal-World Photo range. “In that situation,” Li- FREE STATE SENIOR SCOUT WIEBE, ons coach Nick Wood said, RIGHT, and Topeka Seaman’s Tatyana Legette fight for a rebound in the Please see LHS, page 3B Firebirds’ 53-39 loss Tuesday at FSHS.

ted three of his four turnovers in the first 20 minutes and misfired on all three three-point attempts. But on his way to 26 points and 11 rebounds, Wiggins outscored the man he guarded in the first half, leading scorer Casey Prather, 10-0, in a half Kansas lost, 36-21.

Firebirds split with Seaman By Mike Strauss Special to the Journal-World

Forgive the Free State High boys basketball players if they didn’t realize pregame warmups were over before the start of their game against visiting Topeka Seaman. The Firebirds just continued their layup drill through the first quarter and actually throughout the game. With 24 of its 30 baskets coming on drives to the basket, Free State coasted to a 71-48 victory to improve to 2-0. Each of Free State’s first nine baskets was a layup, including eight in the first

quarter by six players. In fact, 13 of its 15 first-half baskets were strong attacks on the goal. The Firebirds moved the ball well offensively and forced 17 Seaman turnovers defensively in a team effort, which included 11 players scoring on the night. “We have tried to impress on our guys that we would like to shoot more layups, attack the basket and get threes the more conventional way because I think that is more the strength of our team,” Free State coach Chuck Law said.

Angels send Trumbo to Diamondbacks LAKE BUENA VISTA, FLA. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Los Angeles Angels traded slugging outfielder-first baseman Mark Trumbo to the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday as part of a three-team deal that also includes the Chicago White Sox. Pitcher Hector Santiago moved from the White Sox to the Angels, outfielder Adam Eaton from Diamondbacks to Chicago, and left-hander Tyler Skaggs from Arizona to Los Angeles. Arizona also will receive

player to be named or cash from each of the other clubs in the deal made at the winter meetings. Trumbo hit .234 with 34 homers and 100 RBIs this year, getting much of his playing time at first base because Albert Pujols was hurt. But he was deemed superfluous by Los Angeles, which needs starting pitching behind Jered Weaver, C.J. Wilson and Garrett Richards. Santiago was 4-9 with a 3.56 earned-run average in 23 starts and 11 relief appearances. His

fastball velocity has dipped from 93.8 mph in 2011 to 92.8 in 2012 to 91.8 last season, according to Eaton hit .252 with three homers, 22 RBIs and 44 strikeouts in 250 at-bats for the Diamondbacks this year, when he also played with three minor league teams. Skaggs went to Santa Monica High School, was taken by the Angels with the 40th overall selection of the 2009 amateur draft and was dealt to the Diamondbacks in August 2010 to

complete the trade that brought Dan Haren to Los Angeles. Skaggs made his big league debut in 2012, when he had six starts, but spent much of this year in the minors. He was 2-3 with a 5.12 ERA in seven starts this year for Arizona, leaving him with a 3-6 career mark. All four players have low salaries for now. Trumbo and Santiago are on track to be eligible for salary arbitration after next season, Eaton following 2015 season and Skaggs after the 2016 season.

By Tim Cowlishaw Dallas Morning News

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rare that my reaction to a Bill Belichick news conference is a shout of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hallelujah.â&#x20AC;? More often, a gentle nudge in the arm to wake me up does the trick. But the mumbling football genius of the New England Patriots spoke this week as if he were reading from my talking points the last few years. So he gets special credit now for trying to save the game of football as we know it. The NFL, despite its massive appeal, has two major problems. One is not instantly fixable. That is the manner in which it chooses to deal with safety and head injuries and the discoveries being made on brain trauma that the league systematically ignored for nearly a decade. We have talked about that one a lot, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s complex, so letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s put that on the sidelines for today. The other one is easy. The gameâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rules â&#x20AC;&#x201D; specifically those governing the leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s replay system â&#x20AC;&#x201D; must be simplified. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of confusing to me which plays are and which plays arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t challengeable,â&#x20AC;? Belichick said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s confusing to the fans to know what they all are.â&#x20AC;? But we all know one that isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t reviewable. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the most important call in the game â&#x20AC;&#x201D; pass interference. How many times in todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s NFL, where more than half the games are decided by eight points or fewer, does an interference call factor prominently into the outcome? Last week you didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be a big Arizona fan to think that the Eagles were getting a lot of leeway in how they handled Larry Fitzgerald and the Cardsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; receivers. Yet the deciding play in the Eaglesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 24-21 win was a holding call on Arizonaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tyrann Mathieu away from the play when Patrick Peterson had made what would have been the first interception of the season on Nick Foles. The holding was irrelevant if it happened at all. But the play, being a â&#x20AC;&#x153;judgment call,â&#x20AC;? was not reviewable. Arizona coach Bruce Arians said that was one of 15 plays he sent to the league office. When he heard back from the NFL, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I got even madder,â&#x20AC;? Arians said. The Cards are outside looking in at the playoffs at 7-5. There are 23 teams within two games of first place or one game of a wild-card spot with four weeks to go. How many fates, like Arizonaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perhaps, will be determined by calls that are exasperating to coaches and to teamsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; fans but cannot be overturned by common sense? â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you have (only) two challenges, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see anything wrong with the concept of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;you can challenge any two plays you want,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Belichick said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have any problem if a play was open to a challenge, understanding that if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not conclusive, then itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not conclusive and the ruling on the field would stand.â&#x20AC;?

TEXAS FOOTBALL COACH MACK BROWN celebrates after a victory against Oklahoma on Oct. 12 in Dallas.

Brown decision forthcoming, Texas AD says AUSTIN, TEXAS â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Texas athletic director Steve Patterson says no decision has been made about the future of Longhorns coach Mack Brown. Texas released a statement by Patterson several hours after reported, citing two unidentified sources, that Brown will announce he is stepping down by weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s end. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We continue to discuss the future of Texas football,â&#x20AC;? Patterson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mack Brown has not resigned. And, no decisions have been made.â&#x20AC;? Joe Jamail, Brownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s longtime friend and attorney, told the Associated Press on Tuesday: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mack Brown has not resigned.â&#x20AC;? He says Brownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s future with Texas is still up to the coach., a Texas recruiting website, reported that Brown denied the report in a text from Florida, where he was recruiting. Brown wrote to Horns247: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have not decided to step down.â&#x20AC;? Texas just completed another regular season that didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t meet expectations. The Longhorns went 8-4, recovering from a 1-2 start and beating Oklahoma, but still finishing with lopsided late-season losses to Oklahoma State and Baylor. There has been speculation about Brownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s future in Austin since even before the season started, and it became rampant after blowout losses to BYU and Mississippi in September. Brown fired defensive coordinator Manny Diaz after the BYU loss and replaced him with Greg Robinson. The move seemed to help. The Longhorns played better, and the season peaked with a 36-20 victory against rival Oklahoma in October. Texas is set to play Oregon in the Alamo Bowl on Dec. 30. Longtime Texas athletic director DeLoss Dodds announced that he would be stepping down earlier this season, and former Arizona State AD Patterson was hired to replace him. The future of another powerful ally of Brownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s could also be decided later this week in Texas. The University of Texas system Board of Regents is meeting Thursday and they are scheduled to discuss and possibly vote on whether Bill Powers will remain the university president at Texas. Powers has had a tenuous relationship with the board for several years.


Frazier enters college hall NEW YORK â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Tommie Frazier waited a couple years longer than many Nebraska fans felt was appropriate to get into the College Football Hall of Fame. Being snubbed didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bother Touchdown Tommie. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just glad the call finally came and that so many appreciated his play. Frazier was inducted by the National Football Foundation in the College Hall of Fame on Tuesday night in New York. Also among the inductees were Heisman Trophy winners Vinny Testaverde, Danny Wuerffel and Ron Dayne and former coaches Wayne Hardin of Temple and Navy and Bill McCartney of Colorado. The rest of the Hall of Fame class included: Ted Brown of North Carolina State; Tedy Bruschi of Arizona; Jerry Gray of Texas; Steve Meilinger of Kentucky; the late Rod Shoate of Oklahoma; Don Trull of Baylor; Percy Snow of Michigan State and Orlando Pace of Ohio State.


OUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hornbeak sidelined NORMAN, OKLA. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Oklahoma sophomore guard Jeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;lon Hornbeak will miss the next four to six weeks because of a broken bone in his left foot. Sooners coach Lon Kruger said Tuesday that Hornbeak was hurt in practice that morning and the injury will not require surgery. The 6-foot-4 Hornbeak is averaging 5.7 points, 2.3 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 1.1 steals in 21 minutes per game as a reserve for the Sooners (8-1).

NAIA player can keep cash OKLAHOMA CITY â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A college basketball player who won $20,000 by hitting a half-court shot during an Oklahoma City Thunder game can keep the money for use as a scholarship, the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics announced Tuesday. Cameron Rodriguez nailed the promotional shot Nov. 18 during the Thunderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home game against the Denver Nuggets.

LAWRENCE HIGH’S MAKAYLA BELL (11) SHOOTS over Junction City’s Brenna Waterman in the Lions’ 66-63 loss Tuesday at LHS.




“there was one second left, and we’re trying any way possible to get a shot up.” Last week, in Lawrence’s season opener, Emporia won 47-45, and the Lions missed a potential game-winner in the final seconds. “We’ve just got to continue to learn and grow,” Wood said, “and keep fighting the fight, and we’ll be all right.” The Lions showed that kind of ability in their comeback. They trailed, 37-35, at halftime before taking the lead in the third quarter, when six players scored, including senior guard Jolona Shield, backup freshmen Lemus and Skylar Drum, and sophomore Brook Sumonja. Drum’s basket late in the quarter put LHS ahead, 49-41. “That third quarter, we were playing great,” Wood said. “At that moment, we needed to grab the game and take it, do those little things: box out, stop dribble penetration, value the ball on offense. We didn’t for about a two-minute stretch, and that let them get back in the game. So that hurt us.” With senior forward Kionna Coleman (eight points, three rebounds and five fouls) in foul trouble throughout the loss to JCHS (1-0), senior forward Makayla Bell asserted herself in the second half. Bell scored 11 of her 16 points in the fourth quarter and accounted for all but one of Lawrence’s points in the final eight minutes before fouling out as well with 1:10 to play. “You want to play,” Bell said after a 12-rebound effort. “I was really upset.

The one time I try to take a charge, I didn’t get it.” She did gather offensive rebounds in bunches in the fourth quarter, though, scoring all three of her late field goals on put-backs and getting to the freethrow line for five more points in second-chance opportunities. “It was good that we were able to push the defenders down low and get the rebound,” Bell said of the LHS frontcourt (Matia Finley added 10 rebounds), “and then go back up strong and get an and-one or two shots.” Junction City’s fourthquarter free-throw shooting (4-for-15) kept Lawrence alive. But senior forward Shadaja Gamble, who had missed seven straight at the foul line in the fourth, made one with 14 seconds left to give JCHS a three-point edge and force Lawrence to take a more challenging shot in the final seconds. Watching from the bench, Bell thought Lemus just might send the Lions to overtime. “I mean, there was one second on (the clock),” Bell said of the nail-biting scenario. “We had to get it up fast.” Lawrence will play at Blue Valley Southwest at 7 p.m. Thursday.

Alyssa Krestan scored 20 points to lead the Eagles. “They hit us pretty hard right out of the gate, and turnovers were a big reason,” said Veritas coach Kevin Shelton, whose squad committed 33 turnovers. “We’re a very young team, and that showed.

Seaman’s Reid Morgart scored most of his game-high 15 points in the paint, while Joe Miller scored from inside and out en route to 11 points. “I thought our defense was OK,” Law said. “It is going to have to get a lot better for what we have coming up the rest of the week.” Cole Moreano, who led Free State with 13 points on 6-of-9 shooting, liked the hustle of his team’s defense, but was not satisfied with the final result. “Our press is more aggressive this year, and we can get easy layups, and that is what we wanted to do,” he said. “Our goal is to try to keep teams below 50 points. It was pretty close. It was not our best effort, but it was OK.” Blake Winslow was the only other Firebird in double figures with 10 points on 4-of-5 shooting as Free State connected on 30 of 60 shots and seven of 10 free throws. “We had a game under

at the end of the half, Free State started the second half on a 10-1 run with better ball movement, which resulted in making four of its first five shots. Less than three minutes into the second half, Free State trailed just 33-26. Topeka Seaman then went on an 11-5 run. “We came out and battled and made a game out of it in the third quarter, but the problem is we got in such a big hole,” Free State coach Bryan Duncan said. “We are not real deep on the bench, and we lost that energy pretty quickly after three to four minutes in the third, and we were pretty worn out.”

KU volleyball gets regional nods J-W Staff Reports

Four Kansas University players made the first team of the American Volleyball Coaches Association All-Midwest Region Team, Tayler Soucie was named the region’s Freshman of the Year, and Ray Bechard was tapped Midwest Region Coach of the Year for the second straight year. Bechard last year became the first KU coach to earn the regional COY honor. He has led KU — 25-7 and headed to the first Sweet 16 appearance in the NCAA Tournament in school history — to consecutive 25-win



seasons for the first time since 1980-81. “I’m excited that my assistant coaches, my volunteer coach and myself can all share in an award that represents all the hard work this coaching staff has done,” Bechard said. KU’s regional firstteamers were: senior middle blocker Caroline



Jarmoc, senior setter Eric McNorton; and junior outside hitters Chelsea Albers and Sara McClinton. Jarmoc is a three-time all-regional pick, while the other three are firsttimers. Soucie is KU’s first regional Freshman of the Year. “I’m happy for the

k i d s , ” Bechard said. “It’s an extension of our weekend, I think. The team performed Soucie at a high level and we had a number of kids that stepped up. There’s some great momentum going within the program right now and when you advance to this level, you will have some opportunities for your team to get recognized.” Kansas will face Washington at 7 p.m. Friday in Los Angeles.

Florida coach: KU has high ‘ceiling’ By Matt Tait

GAINESVILLE, FLA. — The number of areas in which Florida’s basketball team outdid visiting Kansas University during a 67-61 UF victory on Tuesday at the O’Connell Center reached double digits. But few told the story or made the difference as much as the experience of Florida’s guards against the youth of the Jayhawks, who fell to 6-3 and dropped their third game in the four tries. On a night in which KU started four freshmen for the first time in school history, Florida coach Billy Donovan found comfort in a starting lineup that included four tried-and-true seniors who combined to score 43 points and rip down 20 rebounds. Senior guard Scottie Wilbekin (18 points) and senior forward Casey Prather (12 points, eight rebounds) paved the way on the perimeter, and Florida’s big men dominated inside to set the tone for what proved to be a long night for the young Jayhawks, who were led by freshman Andrew Wiggins’ 26-point effort. “Guys like Wilbekin, Prather, those guys have been hardened,” Donovan said. “They’ve been scarred a little bit. How much adversity has Wiggins ever faced on the court? Those guys are gonna have to learn different things, and there’s a process they have to go through.” Part of that process includes learning how to play together, overcome adversity and adjusting to the speed, intensity and every-day grind of college basketball. Each of those elements — and likely several more — figure to jump off the screen when the Jayhawks re-watch this one in the film room in Lawrence. But Donovan, whose Gators improved to 7-2 and won their 21st consecutive home game, said he did not believe the Jayhawks would find anything to be alarmed about. “Listen, Bill is going to have a really, really good team,” Donovan said. “It’s obviously early. When you look at 6-3 and think, ‘Oh my god,’ the reality of it is, I get excited when coaching a team with a huge ceiling, and there may not be another team in the country that has as good of a ceiling as they do.” Donovan’s praise of KU’s pups did not stop there. “The thing that impressed me about the freshmen,” he continued, “watching them on tape and watching them here tonight, their poise, their attitude, their disposition, they don’t get frustrated, they don’t get mad, they don’t point fingers. They handle themselves very, very well.” Those traits and what the Gators did to overcome them might have been an indication of just how well Florida played Tuesday. Kansas coughed it up a season-high 24 times, and Florida maintained a double-digit lead for much of the game despite shooting just 37 percent from the field. Most of the reason for that came from the Gators’ defense. “Our zone was good,” said Donovan, noting that he tried to throw as many defenses as he could at KU and relished the results of the 1-3-1 and 2-3 zones. “I think the difference in the game was, we forced a lot of turnovers tonight.”

Frank. That was a pretty tough night for those guys. I think they can learn and respond and handle situations better moving forward.” Of the lead-guard play, Self said: “The thing is, if your offense sucks in football, usually you look at the quarterbacks. I’m not saying ... it doesn’t fall on the point guards totally. They can do better, but we all can do better. Certainly I don’t think our guard play has been consistent so far.” Freshman wing Andrew Wiggins scored 18 of his career-high 26 points in

the second half as KU made it a game. The Jayhawks were down 58-52 at 1:20 following a Wiggins three. After a KU steal, it was ruled Wiggins, who went up for a shot, threw the ball out of bounds. Florida took possession and canned two free throws at 1:06 to go up by eight again. Brannen Greene, who had five points in 14 minutes, batted the ball out of bounds with KU down 6155 with :45.3 left. “That was on me. I mishandled the ball. It went out of bounds. Stupid mistake,” Greene said. Again Florida hit a pair of free throws after that miscue to go up eight at :37.1 Two Jamari Traylor free throws sliced the gap to 65-61 at :10.9 seconds, but a pair of Kasey Hill free throws answered at :8.5. “Even though we lost, it showed we’re not going to back down,” Wiggins said. “We’re playing until the end.” The Jayhawks, who have dropped three of four games, will meet New Mexico at 6 p.m. Saturday in Sprint Center in Kansas City, Mo. Chances are, Self will go with the four freshmen again. “I am not down on my freshmen,” Self said. “We can play better. Our more experienced guys are sophomores. That’s not really experienced. They don’t have anybody they can fall back on. We’ve got to get everybody playing better. I can’t blame it all on youth. We could have come here and played great and got beat by six. Florida is good, talented. A lot of it may be youth. I think we can still play better.”

Self: KU ‘not very good’ By Gary Bedore

GAINESVILLE, FLA. — Life on the road hasn’t been rosy for Kansas University’s basketball team this nonconference season. The 6-3 Jayhawks’ recent excursions to Colorado and Florida resulted in two losses in four days — on the heels of a 2-1 performance in the Bahamas. “I’m leaving here knowing we are not very good right now. We’re not,” KU coach Bill Self said after a 67-61 loss to Florida on Tuesday in O’Connell Center. “I’m also leaving here believing we can be really good if we can just continue to try to grind it out and get better day to day. “The problem with us right now is we are the only school in America that didn’t play any home games for a month ... in a BCS Conference. That’s my fault. The schedule doesn’t lend itself to getting confidence by winning some games where you don’t have to play great. A lot of it is confidence as much as anything else.” O

Embiid starts: KU freshman Joel Embiid scored six points, with six rebounds and three blocks playing in Gainesville, where he attended The Rock school last year. He made the first start of his college career. “It was fun. I had a lot of fun,” the 7-footer said. He said he found out he would start last weekend. “Coach told me. I think it’s because I’ve been doing well.” Embiid attended a game at The Rock on Monday night. “It was fun to see my old teammates and coaches,” he said. O

KANSAS UNIVERSITY GUARD NAADIR THARPE BEMOANS A MISSED BUCKET by the Jayhawks against Florida during the second half of KU’s 67-61 loss to the Gators on Tuesday in Gainesville, Fla.

Greene responds: KU freshman Brannen Greene came off the bench to score five points with one rebound and two turnovers in 14 minutes. “It’s all about playing hard,” Greene said of earning playing time.

“Coach wants energy. He wants somebody tough who plays hard. I’m trying to learn that and give him what he wants.” Of KU’s effort, he said: “We let the crowd get to us. I feel they punched us in the mouth. We didn’t respond until the second half. It’s putting together two solid quarters. We’ve got some things to work on, though.” Of Greene, Self said: “He was fine. I thought he played hard and played with energy.” O

The Challenge: KU’s loss to Florida on Tuesday night drops the Big 12 Conference to 6-3 in the Big 12/SEC Challenge. Just one game remains: Oklahoma vs. Texas A&M on Dec. 21 in Norman, Okla. Other results: Baylor 67, Kentucky 62; Iowa State 99, Auburn 70; Kansas State 61, Mississippi 58; Oklahoma State 79, South Carolina 52; TCU 71, Mississippi State 61; Texas 70, Vanderbilt 64; Alabama 76, Texas Tech 64; Missouri 80, West Virginia 71. Matchups have not been set for next year’s challenge. “I don’t think it’s been announced yet. I think there’s a great chance that will happen,” KU coach Bill Self said of a KU-Florida rematch in 2014-15 in Allen Fieldhouse. “We’re happy playing Florida. I’m sure they’re happy playing us. I think they try to pair them where preseason expectations are supposed to be. We won’t play Kentucky in the Challenge because we play them next year in another event (Champions Classic).” Self on last week’s Hawk Talk radio show was asked the chances of KU playing Missouri in the Challenge. “Probably not great ... if the Big 12/SEC Challenge wants to continue, to be real honest,” Self cracked. “They (Tigers) may not want it. I know we don’t want it. It’s not a knock to them. That probably will not be part of our future moving forward with either one of us.”


He wasn’t a part of the problem for a squad playing with guards who don’t yet know how to attack a zone. He was at the center of the attempted solution. During Florida’s 21-0 blitzkrieg that took 8:43 off the clock and made the young Jayhawks age much more than that, Wiggins missed four shots but wasn’t responsible for any of KU’s six turnovers committed by five other players. “What Andrew did, he competed,” Self said. “He scored points, but he got 11 rebounds, and we’ve been on his butt about doing that. And he made shots, but even some of the shots he made, I’m glad he made them and all that stuff, but that’s not what I’m glad that he did. I just thought he was more aggressive competing, which was good.” The faster the pace, the more aggressively teammates attack, the better Wiggins plays. In the opening 20 minutes against the Gators, KU’s guards were put on their heels, confused by the defense in front of them. Kansas practiced against a 1-3-1 zone, but that’s not the same as facing it against a bunch of experienced athletes who know how to play it. “I don’t think our guards do anything to help him right now,” Self said of Wiggins. “I thought he played aggressive, for the most part, the entire game.

KANSAS COACH BILL SELF BEGS FOR A FOUL against Florida to a game official off an inbound play late. I just don’t think he got very many opportunities in the first half.” Why didn’t he? “Their 1-3-1 and our inability to attack it, that kind of stuff,” Self said. “A lot of times you don’t put it all on one kid because he doesn’t get any shot attempts for five minutes because if he doesn’t touch it, he’s not going to shoot it.” In leading KU’s comeback, Wiggins scored 16 points and made four of six three-pointers. When Florida coach Billy Donovan switched to a manto-man defense, Wiggins’ eyes lit up, and so did the scoreboard. He received late help from Brannen Greene, who energized the team with hustle, forced a key turnover when KU applied full-court pressure and scored five points in 14 minutes. Greene also committed the biggest turnover, losing the ball out of bounds with 55 seconds

left and storming KU trailing by six. So many lessons remain for these college basketball novices, but in a game two talented players showed they have adjusted to the need to play hard every possession in the college game, the night was not without its positive signs. For KU to look as bad as it did in a first half in which it had three assists, 16 turnovers and 18 field-goal attempts, then threatening to make a game of it in the final minute, means hope exists for another Big 12 title and long tournament run. Having the best player on the floor in nearly every game is not a bad starting point for forming a team out of a collection of talented young individuals who have so much left to learn and so many difficult tests staring them down.

Top 25 No. 11 Kentucky 70, Boise State 55 LEXINGTON, KY. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; James Young scored 17 of his 21 points in the first half, and Kentucky used solid defense to hand Boise State its first loss Tuesday night. Outrebounded by 15 in losing to No. 14 Baylor last Friday, the Wildcats (8-2) bounced back by dominating the Broncos (8-1) 43-27 on the glass. Kentucky held the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s No. 2 offense 37 points below its average, limiting Boise State to 8-of-35 shooting in the second half and 22-of-69 overall (32 percent.) Kentucky 7-footer Willie Cauley-Stein had a lot to do with that, matching his career high with nine blocks. Julius Randle had 17 points and 11 rebounds for the Wildcats, while guards Aaron and Andrew Harrison each scored 13 points and combined for seven rebounds.

BOISE STATEâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S MIKEY THOMPSON, right, attempts a shot against Kentuckyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Aaron Harrison on Tuesday night in Lexington, Ky. ed 18, and Gonzaga came from 10 points down to beat West Virginia. Gary Bell Jr. added 15 points, and Sam Dower scored 11 for Gonzaga (9-1), which won its fifth straight since a Nov. 25 loss to Dayton in the Maui Invitational. Pangos had 11 points in the final six minutes as Gonzaga rallied from down 53-43, its only double-digit deficit this season. The Bulldogs held West Virginia (6-4) to one field

goal over a seven-minute stretch late in the game. Eron Harris led the Mountaineers with 23 points while Juwan Staten added 17 and Terry Henderson 15. Playing on an opponentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s court for the first time this season, Gonzaga matched its season low for points. The Bulldogs entered the game with the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best field goal percentage at 54.9 but were held to 44.3 percent (27 of 61).

Karnowski grabbed 13 rebounds as Gonzaga held a 43-36 rebound advantage. West Virginia led 6456 after a three-pointer by Terry Henderson with 8:23 left, but the Mountaineers fell flat and failed to seize on an opportunity to pad their resume and get its first win over a marquee opponent. West Virginia also lost in the past two weeks to No. 4 Wisconsin and Missouri.

Kansas State 64, South Dakota 62 MANHATTAN â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Marcus Foster had 18 points, and Shane Southwell contributed 17 points and six rebounds as Kansas State beat South Dakota. Kansas State (6-3) overcame a poor secondhalf performance from the foul line to top the Coyotes. While holding a 63-62 lead with two seconds left, Thomas Gipson converted on the first of two free throws to seal the victory. Trevor Gruis matched his season high with 18 points for South Dakota (3-6), while Adam Thoseby added a season-high 16. South Dakota opened strong, charging to a 15-4 lead with 10:59 remaining in the first half. Having returned four of its five starters from last season, the Coyotes used their experience to punish a depleted Kansas State frontcourt with 16 points in the paint in the first half. The Wildcats twice cut the lead to three but South Dakota maintained a fivepoint advantage at the break. Fosterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 4-for-7 shooting from three-point range kept Kansas State within breathing range.

But the Coyotes limited the defending Big 12 champions to 32 percent shooting in the first half while also forcing 11 turnovers. Having seen limited offense before the break, Gipson opened up the second half with two consecutive baskets while Omari Lawrence added two of his nine secondhalf points. Neither team was able to stake its claim on the lead as the second half alone carried 17 lead changes and four ties. A three-pointer from Southwell gave the Wildcats a 59-57 advantage with 4:52 left. The Wildcats held the lead for the remainder of the contest. Maintaining its edge on rebounding proved to be crucial for the Wildcats. Four different players grabbed at least five rebounds including Gipson leading the way with eight. South Dakota attempted to close the gap by putting the Wildcats on the free throw line and it nearly paid off. The Wildcats closed the game with a 3-8 performance from the line, and a half-court heave from South Dakotaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Brandon Bos fell short at the final buzzer.

Pacers 90, Heat 84 INDIANAPOLIS — Roy Hibbert scored 24 points, and Paul George had 15 of his 17 points during a second-half rally to lead Indiana past Miami on Tuesday night in a matchup of the Eastern Conference’s top two teams. Indiana improved its league-best record to 19-3 and extended its lead to three full games by beating Miami at home for the fourth straight time. LeBron James led the Heat with 17 points, 14 rebounds and six assists but had only three baskets and nine points over the final 36 minutes. Miami has now lost three of five. The Heat led by 13 in the first half and didn’t trail until Hibbert completed a three-point play with 6:12 left in the third quarter to put the Pacers ahead 58-57.

Chicken and noodles a comfort food classic By Meryl Carver-Allmond Special to the Journal-World

The weekend before any family holiday, my grandma would spread out brown grocery sacks on her kitchen table. Rolling her dough to perfect half-inch thickness, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d carefully cut out and dry enough homemade noodles to feed her family of 25 or so. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know this until years later, but her secret ingredient was not the noodles â&#x20AC;&#x201D; it was a small bottle of yellow food coloring. Chicken noodles are naturally pasty white, which isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t very appetizing, so sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d add a drop or two of yellow dye to give her noodles a warm glow. My mother â&#x20AC;&#x201D; her daughter-in-law â&#x20AC;&#x201D; fully adopted the use of the food coloring, but never saw the need to make noodles from scratch. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You really canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell!â&#x20AC;? she would declare. In fact, she developed a trick to fool my stepfather: She would shake a bit of flour with her storebought frozen noodles to make them look more homemade. I loved chicken and noodles so much that I never told. Served with warm, crusty bread, it was one of my favorite dinners. Then I grew up and got married myself. The first time I made chicken and noodles for my husband for dinner, he tentatively asked, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Where are the mashed potatoes?â&#x20AC;? I was initially grossed out by the idea of that many carbohydrates, but once I opened my mind a little I discovered that chicken noodles are only improved when served atop a pile of garlic mashed potatoes. These days when I make chicken and noodles, I typically pull a little bit from everyone. I rarely make homemade noodles, but I still add a little yellow coloring â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a few threads of saffron when Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m feeling flush, the trusty yellow dye when saffron is too expensive. And we almost always have them with mashed potatoes, although I still pick up a Wheatfields baguette every now and then for nostalgiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sake. My major contribution to the recipe has been that I always make homemade stock. For one, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just as easy, and two, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very frugal. For $15 I can make enough stock to make chicken and noodles and fill our freezer for later. Occasionally, I will also spice my chicken and noodles up. As-is, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a classic, comfort food recipe, but if you want to add a twist, a few tablespoons of curry powder is really nice. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve also made these with leftover turkey â&#x20AC;&#x201D; particularly if you have smoked turkey â&#x20AC;&#x201D; for just a little change. With nods to the women whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve handed it down to me, here is my version of our family chicken and noodles recipe.

at least an hour, but up to 4 or 5 hours. When the stock is finished, strain out the vegetables and chicken. The veggies will be too soggy to eat, so just discard them. Remove the chicken meat from the bones, and set the meat aside. Pour about a gallon of the stock â&#x20AC;&#x201D; you can freeze the rest for later â&#x20AC;&#x201D; into a stock pot. Add the chicken meat and butter, and let the stock come to a boil. Cut the tops off two bags of frozen noodles and add half the flour to each bag. Holding the bag closed,

Chop the vegetables in half and add to the pot, along with the chicken and thyme. Fill the pot about 2/3 full with water and bring to a boil. Turn down the heat just a little, and let the pot simmer for

Chile-lime catfish that’s diabetic friendly By Lisa Abraham Akron Beacon Journal

Better Homes and Gardens has a new book out filled with lots of easy recipes for anyone facing a diabetes diagnosis or one who cooks for a diabetic. “The Ultimate Diabetes Cookbook” has more than 400 recipes, including a whole section on meals for two, and chapters on salads, soups, sandwiches, desserts and family dinner entrees. Each recipe contains complete nutritional information and diabetic exchanges. Try out this recipe for catfish, which can be made just as easily with sole or tilapia. John Young/Journal-World Photos

Cinnamon spice makes anything nice Delicious Cinnamon was a great idea for our December recipes. It’s such a versatile item, and almost everyone has some somewhere in the spice cabinet. I use it for several unconventional reasons. I like to put a cinnamon stick in with a pot roast in the slow cooker. I also like to make homemade cinnamon ice cream, and I worship Middle Eastern food, largely because of its unabashed use of cinnamon. But for this project, I couldn’t help but go traditional. I know the first thing everyone thinks of is cinnamon rolls, and I almost went with that, but I decided everyone already pretty much has a go-to cinnamon roll recipe, which may or may not include cracking open a tube of “whomp”um rolls. You know what I mean, right? The spiral paper tubes that you “whomp” against the counter until they crack open? I love those. I love homemade ones more, but it’s not something we have time to do every weekend. Next up, of course, was apple pie. But again, we all have our apple pie recipes. So I decided to offer up apple pie with a festive twist. I made it right in the apple. Genius, right? So happy and

Hollow it out and remove the core bits from the apple and reserve any good parts you can salvage. Peel the extra apple, core and dice. If this isn’t quite enough apple to fill your “boats” you can peel and cut up the tops for a little extra filling. I had enough apple from the one I cut up and the insides of the apples I removed.

Nutritious With all apologies to pepper, nutmeg and ginger, I’d have to say that out of all the little bottles on my spice rack, cinnamon has to be my favorite. Which is why I totally invest in my cinnamon. You might call it silly or a waste of money, but I pay top dollar for fancy Vietnamese cinnamon from Penzeys Spices. OK, it’s not like it’s the price of gold or anything, but buying the good stuff there definitely comes at a markup. But that also means I don’t seem to have to use very much of it to get a good cinnamon kick in everything from smoothies to burritos to pancakes to cookies. For this particular column, though, I decided to tackle a side dish. And the recipe below is so dang simple, it’s kind of criminal. You don’t need anything but an oven, a knife, parchment paper on a cookie sheet, squash and cinnamon. Maybe cumin if you want. The dish is even self-contained in that you can serve it as is, just reassemble the little squash and go. And the reason it’s so simple? Dressing warm squash with cinnamon is the kind of fool-proof perfect you and I and everybody needs on cold

winter nights when it’s dark before dinner. Note: Be careful that you’re truly picking sweet dumpling squash and not its lookalike cousin, carnival acorn squash. While the carnival acorn squash is delicious, it’s not nearly as sweet at the sweet dumpling and you might find yourself a tad bit disappointed with the results.

PARTY FOOD without the fuss 30 suggestions for easy holiday entertaining By Alison Ladman Associated Press

Fantasizing about throwing a big holiday bash but fearful youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll spend the whole party â&#x20AC;&#x201D; or worse, the whole week â&#x20AC;&#x201D; in the kitchen prepping? Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got you covered. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve assembled an easy mix-and-match approach

to holiday entertaining. An hour or so of prep and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have enough nibbles to feed a crowd in high style. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how it works: Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve divided the menu into 10 â&#x20AC;&#x153;baseâ&#x20AC;? ingredients. Each ingredient is paired with three simple suggestions for dressing it up for the party. All you need to do is pick enough base ingre-

dients to feed your crowd, then decide how youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to prepare each. A little shopping, a little prepping, then youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re ready to party. Many of these options make easy dips, spreads or other toppings for bread, so when you make that trip to the grocer, round out the menu with a variety of crackers and baguettes or

Dear Annie: I was married to a verbally abusive narcissist for 10 years. Two separations and three counselors later, I decided to leave him. That was in June. I recently met someone who makes me believe there are good people out there. But my soon-to-be ex and my brother have been screaming from the rooftops that I am a cheater, and that my husband’s behavior was perfect. This hurts me so deeply I cannot describe the pain. I bent over backward for this man for years, but he always has to “win.” Due to my brother’s badmouthing me and my unwillingness to fight, my parents barely speak to me. My ex is irresponsible about money, so I paid off his truck and am making half of his house payment so my kids have a place

to stay when they see him. I have 10 pages of documentation from all the horribleness I have lived through. I hope my parents someday will warm up to the new man who treats me so well. I have given up on my brother. Meanwhile, my ex keeps telling me how he is doing “the right thing” by letting my children see me, because all of his friends tell him not to. Of course, he never was involved with the kids. He’s using them for leverage.

I pay for all of the children’s expenses and their health insurance, and I see a counselor regularly. But every week, my ex or my brother contacts me and tries to make me feel like a terrible person for leaving. Will it ever stop? — Exhausted in Wisconsin Dear Wisconsin: We hope so, but you have to be strong. Until the divorce is final, your husband (and brother) will try to wear you down so you will return. As long as the children can be used to pressure you, your ex will do so. We know you are tired, but you need to fight back a little harder. Let your parents know exactly what is going on, and let them see the documentation. Make sure you have a good attorney who will see that the kids are protected and have access to both of their parents. Don’t

WARNING! By Gary Cooper


push your new relationship. It’s too soon for your parents to accept. And keep seeing your counselor. It will help. Dear Annie: “Not Lonely in Virginia” said she has trouble making friends. When she added, “I suspect it may have to do with reading body language. I can’t interpret the signals,” it sounded like Asperger’s. I was in a relationship with a man with Asperger’s, and I didn’t have a clue about this syndrome. It was devastating. I read everything I could and now understand it. Please direct her to, where she will be welcomed and understood. — Sioux ACROSS Falls — Send questions to, or Annie’s Mailbox, P.O. Box 118190 Chicago, IL 60611.
