Drain on aquifer driven by drought ———

Groundwater survey likely to show another decrease as irrigation draws levels lower By Peter Hancock Richard Gwin/Journal-World Photo

MARY LOU LAFAUCE AND HER SON, Adam, 11, of Kankakee, Ill., play with Q-Ba-Maze, a new marble game, at the Toy Store on Massachusetts Street on Thursday. Christmas shoppers have been busy looking for the right gifts downtown, and there’s still time left.

Cold snap can’t break hot streak for downtown businesses By Sara Shepherd


About 10 percent of you will still be shopping for gifts on Tuesday (yep, that’s Christmas Eve), a National Retail Federation holiday survey estimates. As for the rest of us, local retailers can tell we’ve been checking off our lists. Businesses in downtown Lawrence, the city’s local retail hub, say it’s been a good season — maybe not a blockbuster, but definitely good. “This Christmas season compared to the previous three or four has been excellent,� said Jan Brocker, owner of ToToTrains at 1031 Vermont St. Downtown Lawrence Inc. director Sally Zogry said Black Friday and Small Business Saturday sales were brisk but that traffic seemed sparser than usual during

Need ideas? For you last-minute shoppers, here are a few items that have been selling well at downtown Lawrence stores. The Toy Store, 936 Massachusetts St.: Rainbow Loom friendship bracelet maker, Kinetic Sand and Q-Ba-Maze, a kit to create your own marble runs. The Etc. Shop, 928 Massachusetts St.: Brighton and Hobo brand leather handbags and antique Native American jewelry. (Etc. Shop also lets customers fill out wish lists, a big help to many husbands.)

Phoenix Gallery, 825 Massachusetts St.: Ceramic vegetable steamers and other cooking vessels, artisan jewelry and handmade watches.

ToToTrains, 1031 Vermont St.: Battery powered trains for kids 3 and up, starter sets and HOscale military items.

Last year, when researchers from the Kansas Geological Survey traveled to western Kansas to measure groundwater levels in the High Plains Aquifer, they found those levels had dropped by an average of about 3 and a half feet.

Liberal and Garden City in the south. Most of the wells draw water from the High Plains Aquifer, a large network of underground water-bearing rocks that stretches from South Dakota and Wyoming to Texas and New Mexico. It includes the Ogallala aquifer in western Kansas, the Great Bend Prairie aquifer in west-central Kansas and the Equus Beds aquifer northwest of Wichita. That system is the primary source of water for cities and industries in the area. But the heaviest demand by far for the water is agriculture, which


information on graduate incomes by university department while touring Kansas University and other state schools in October.

Small part of the story Donna Ginther, a KU professor of economics and director of the universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Center for Science Technology and Economic Policy, is part of a project funded by the Kansas Board of Regents to match Kansas Department of Labor data about income to graduates from Regents institutions. The goal is to determine the direct economic impact of graduating from a Kansas university. Ambitious as it is, the study falls short of its aim, Ginther said. For one, salaries are generally lower for college graduates in their first years in the workforce, as they take their first jobs and look to either move up or go to graduate school. More information and a longer timeline would be necessary to fully deduce a collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s effect on income, Ginther said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think that while itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s informative to see if recent graduates are employed and see their starting wages, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a small part of the story,â&#x20AC;? she said. Across the country, there is a rising chorus of voices saying that incomes should not be the measure of value for a college degree at all, or at least not the only measure. Those voices became louder after Obama suggested a national college ranking system that would


The National Retail Federation is estimating 3.9 percent growth, a slight increase over the 3.5 percent holiday sales growth seen in 2012. This shopping season â&#x20AC;&#x201D; starting with box stores getting a jump on Black Friday by opening Thanksgiving Day â&#x20AC;&#x201D; has been the most discountdriven one since the depth of the Recession, the Associated Press reported. The amount of discounts stores are offering is up 13 percent from last year, the AP reported, and many retailers added big sales the last weekend before Christmas. Advertisements in last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Journal-World reflected that, with lastminute â&#x20AC;&#x153;door bustersâ&#x20AC;? and discounts up to 60 percent at large chain stores stuffing the paper. Most local businesses donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t rely on the same kind of in-your-face discounts. At the Phoenix Gallery, for example, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really wheel and deal with artistsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; work,â&#x20AC;? Shea said. Another national trend

has been reflected downtown: Gift cards are big. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I cannot keep up,â&#x20AC;? Zogry said of Downtown Lawrence gift cards. Good for more than 120 restaurants and retailers, cards are sold at the Downtown Lawrence office, Weaverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department Store and Douglas County Bank locations. Zogry said she replenished stock at her office and Weaverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s at least twice since Thanksgiving and delivered 200 more cards to the bank last week, where they were selling 10 to 20 at a time. Business owners are buying the cards as gifts for employees, Zogry said, but theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re also a practical option for relatives and friends. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great to get your sister another pair of earrings,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sort of nice to let them get something they really want â&#x20AC;&#x201D; maybe something thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a treat they may not know they want.â&#x20AC;?

was fundamentally transformed in that region with the invention in 1948 of center-pivot irrigation, devices that create large circular crop fields in an otherwise flat and gridlike landscape. In roughly the past five years, an extended drought in the central plains has forced farmers there to rely even more heavily on irrigation, drawing down two to three feet of water each year, while nature replaces only a few inches per year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Although parts of west-central and southwest Kansas received significant precipitation amounts in late July and August 2013, drought conditions persisted across roughly the western third of the state,â&#x20AC;?

include graduate incomes as part of its portfolio of value markers. Gloria Nemerowicz, who heads the Yes We Must Coalition, a group of 33 colleges that serve high percentages of low-income students, said graduate incomes can be a â&#x20AC;&#x153;very crudeâ&#x20AC;? way to judge school value. For one, it could penalize schools and programs that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t produce high-income graduates. Those would include programs that educate school teachers, social workers, community activists and others who play an important social role but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t receive high compensation for their work. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Is it their fault that this society doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t value public school teachers very much?â&#x20AC;? Nemerowicz asked. Nemerowicz also points out that income and employment outcomes are often influenced by race, class and gender â&#x20AC;&#x201D; factors well beyond the control of both students and colleges.

vance the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economic interests. Nelson said the experience sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gaining and the job itself are more important than money. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For me, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about growing the community that I grew up in.â&#x20AC;? Josh Doke, who graduated in film and media studies at KU in 2012, skipped the traditional job search altogether and started a production company with friends. Their company, Rockhaven Films, makes promotional videos and has recently started preproduction on a feature film. Doke said the commercial work pays the bills and leaves time for doing other projects they enjoy. Pat Eland, who graduated from the KU journalism school in 2012, got a job out of school with Spurs Sports and Entertainment in San Antonio, where he works with clients paying for sponsorship with the San Antonia Spurs and its affiliates. Eland said his earnings are on the high end for new graduates, but that wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t his top priority. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I come to work every day with a smile on my face,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I walk out with a smile on my face.â&#x20AC;?

Defining success Students and graduates themselves might value more from a job than the size of their paychecks. A 2011 report sponsored by the Career Advisory Board found that more than 70 percent of adults between ages 21 and 31 considered doing meaningful work among the main factors that defined success for them. Jessica Nelson, who graduated from KU with a journalism degree in 2011, now works in the public relations office of the Kansas City Area Development Council, a private nonprofit that tries to ad-

Distracted driving on the rise, according to research

Lots of snow, but little trouble

Making memories

By Roy Wenzl The Wichita Eagle

WICHITA — Dr. Jibo He is a professor of psychology. He currently spends 16 hours a day studying how we’ve recently begun trying to accidentally kill ourselves and others. Just a few years ago, drunken driving was the one big killer on our roads. Now we have two. Drunken driving still kills 30 people a day. But hundreds of thousands of us began talking on cellphones while driving just a few years back. Then more people did it — and added texting while driving. Then even more people made calls, texted — and began “webbing while driving.” With only one hand on the wheel, they swipe their thumb on the screen of their smartphone, log onto the Internet and chat on Facebook, tweet on Twitter, watch videos and look at photographs. Suddenly, distracted driving kills nine people a day. Dr. He thinks this will get worse. Distracted driving last year killed 3,328 people and injured 421,000, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Four years ago, 13 percent of all drivers in a survey told State Farm that they drove while “webbing.” This year, 24 percent admitted to it. Young people under 25 also told State Farm that half of Please see DRIVING, page 4A

This weekend’s winter storm left more snow than destruction in its path. About 5 inches of snow fell in Lawrence in a 24hour period from Saturday night through early Sunday morning, including about a half-inch of sleet that arrived before the snow, said Kris Sanders, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service’s Topeka office. The chance for light snow this morning was about 20 percent. Sanders said any snow would likely amount to a dusting. By the time the storm had cleared late Sunday morning, Sgt. Damon Thomas of the Lawrence Police Department said he didn’t know of any weather-related wrecks in the city. “It hasn’t really affected us much at all,” he said. The same went for much of the county. Lt. Blake McCall from the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office said from Saturday night through Sunday morning there were about 12 slide-offs along county roads and only a couple of accidents that required a report, none of them with injuries he was aware of. “It’s really pretty quiet for an average storm like this,” McCall said. Interstate 70 saw the most weather-related accidents in Please see SNOW, page 4A

the area. Between Topeka and Kansas City on Saturday, there were about 12 crashes on I-70, one of them involving a nonfatal injury, said Dottie Conboy of the Kansas Turnpike Authority.

successful partnership, in which high school students are targeted as mentors. Using suckers as bait, Moran manned a Free State Bigs in Schools information table at school last spring and started delivering her compelling pitch: â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is so easy to do, and it makes such a big impact,â&#x20AC;? she told student after student, urging them to give 30 minutes a week to help change a kidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Recruitment was very successful,â&#x20AC;? Moran reported. The BBBS staff was thrilled with the number of Free State students who applied to be Bigs and hopes to expand the program to other area high schools, said Leilani Tuttle, area program director for BBBS. The Free State Bigs were matched with Littles at Quail Run, Sunflower

â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Leilani Tuttle, area program director for BBBS and Deerfield elementary schools, where they spend time with their Littles doing anything from homework to crafts to playing basketball. The activity isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t so important, Tuttle said. The relationship that forms is. A three-year study by the Austin Group found that 71 percent of Kansas children involved with Bigs in Schools improved their academic performance, 50 percent had fewer unexcused absences from school and 67 percent reported that their attitude toward school improved, Tuttle shared. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My goal is to be a friend. I want to make her feel important and feel listened to,â&#x20AC;? said Moran,

who still remembers how envious she was when one of her classmates in elementary school had a Big Sister. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She got pulled out of class by this really cool college kid to chat and paint nails. I was so jealous! I idolized anyone who was that age.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The cool factor is high,â&#x20AC;? agreed Tuttle, explaining that when the elementary students spend time with high school students who have a positive attitude and are focused on academic success, it motivates the children to succeed in school as well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The high school students benefit, too,â&#x20AC;? Tuttle added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They learn the value of volunteering and mentoring. It makes them

better citizens, aware of the community and the needs of others. It teaches them the importance of making a commitment and sticking with it.â&#x20AC;? Moran can attest to the impact volunteering can have on a personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been an active volunteer since she was in junior high, and the experience has been eye-opening, she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All the work I have done with the United Way of Douglas County, helping with the (United Way Roger Hill Volunteer Center) Summer of Service, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s broadened my horizons. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been exposed to so many things I would have not known about. So many people have so many problems; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s put everything into perspective.â&#x20AC;?

Town Talk


Chad Lawhorn

need to find my Mario Andretti sunglasses, my Chi Chi Rodriguez slacks and my Alex Rodriguez cologne ASAP. There are plans for a new West Lawrence development that includes electric go-karts, miniature golf, batting cages and even mini bowling. (Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m supposed to wear for mini bowling, but I promise it will be small.) Plans have been filed at Lawrence City Hall for a proposed Family Fun Center at 4300 W. 24th Place, which basically is the vacant ground near the corner of Clinton Parkway and Inverness Drive. The plans call for the development to be on about 11 acres near the multitude of apartment complexes that have developed over the years between Inverness Drive and Crossgate Drive. Based on the drawings submitted to City Hall, preliminary plans include about a 36,000-square-feet area for a go-kart track, about 7,200 square feet for batting cages, 87,000 square feet for miniature golf and a 6,800-square-feet â&#x20AC;&#x153;tot lot.â&#x20AC;? (Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m assuming it is an area for toddlers, but a pit full of warm tater tots would be excellent as well.) In the center of the site is a proposed two-story, 28,000-square-feet clubhouse, which I assume would have the mini bowling area. Information submitted to City Hall also indicates there will be lots of area for birthday parties, arcade games, snack areas and that sort of thing. The information also indicates preliminary plans are to have a small bar area that would serve 3.2 beer. The plans filed donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make it clear who the developer is behind the project. Lawrence-based Paul Werner Architects has filed the plans and is shepherding the development through the city approval process. The development will require some significant approvals. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m confirming with city officials, but it looks like the project will need not only a change in zoning to a commercial designation, but also a special-use permit and a text amendment to the zoning code that would allow outdoor recreation centers in CN2 commercial zoning district. It will be an interesting development to watch. Neighbors in the general area have fought hard against apartment development in recent years. So, the fact that this prime piece of property is being proposed for something other than apartments is probably welcome. Whether neighbors will take to the idea of an outdoor recreation center will be a key issue to watch. Outdoor developments usually bring up the issue of noise and light pollution, and Wernerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s firm has indi-

cated it will make limiting those issues an important part of the design process. The plans note that the gokarts will be electric rather than gas powered. The go-kart manufacturer advertises that the machines make noise equal to or less than a vehicle traveling down a road at about 20 to 30 mph. The plan also will include significant landscaping to address lighting issues. Preliminary plans call for the business to be open well into the nighttime hours. According to a document submitted as part of the plans, the current thinking is for the business to be open until 10 p.m. on most weeknights, but open until midnight Thursday through Saturday.


The sun is setting on the longtime East Lawrence business Sunrise Garden Center. Owner Greg McDonald told me that the businessâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; last day of operation is planned to be Christmas Eve. As we reported in June, McDonald put the business and its 3.5 acres at 15th and New York streets up for sale. A buyer hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t yet been found for the site, but McDonald said having a business up for sale and trying to continue to operate it is difficult, especially for a garden center that must start growing some of its inventory well before it is ready for sale. McDonald said he knows one rumor that is floating around town is that the corner property will be converted into an apartment complex. He said thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not in the plans. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a single family area,â&#x20AC;? McDonald said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think that will be happening.â&#x20AC;? McDonald has owned the business for the past 14 years, but the location has served as a nursery since the 1920s, he said. Longtime florist Jim Owens operated it for many years, and early on it served as the nursery that supplied flowers to local shops, long before flowers were routinely flown or trucked in from other locations. (The business also has a long history as Penceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Garden Center.) McDonald said he still thinks the best use for the property is as a greenhouse. He said if a new owner doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to operate it as a retail center, the size of the greenhouse â&#x20AC;&#x201D; there is about a football field under glass â&#x20AC;&#x201D; makes it viable for other types of growing operations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it could make a very good incubator location for local, urban farmers,â&#x20AC;? McDonald said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it would work well for somebody who wanted

Veteran commercial real estate agent Doug Brown of McGrew Commercial Real Estate is marketing the property. McDonald said the asking price has been reduced to $725,000. McDonald said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s selling the business because he wants more time to pursue other interests. The business employs anywhere from about nine to 24 people, depending on the season. McDonald said there are mixed emotions about the decision to close. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I had a quarter for every person who told me they were sad that we were closing, it would be enough to make a mortgage payment,â&#x20AC;? McDonald said.

Nearly half of immigration judges eligible to retire By Laura Wides-Munoz Associated Press

MIAMI â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s already backlogged immigration courts might soon be thrown into more havoc as roughly half of their 220 judges will be eligible for retirement next year. The Executive Office for Immigration Review, which oversees the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 59 immigration courts, says the court already has 32 vacancies, contributing to the cur-

rent backlog of nearly 350,000 cases. Judges are overwhelmed, and immigrants with legitimate asylum claims can spend years in legal limbo. Meanwhile, immigrants without legitimate legal claims remain in the country, while Americans foot the bill for them to be locked up longer. The Executive Office says its average retirement rate is only 5 percent per year â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which would mean 11 judges retiring

When Congress wants to fund immigration enforcement, they forget about the court.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Judge Dana Leigh Marks, president of the National Association of Immigration Judges in 2014. But Judge Dana Leigh Marks, president of the National Association of Immigration Judges, fears increasingly difficult conditions are likely to push many to retire at the

earliest opportunity. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are the forgotten stepchild. When Congress wants to fund immigration enforcement, they forget about the court,â&#x20AC;? Marks said.

Apple to bring iPhone to China Mobile BEIJING â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Apple says it has reached a deal to bring the iPhone to China Mobile, the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest phone carrier. The deal ends a lengthy courtship and could boost sales of the iPhone in China. The iPhone, once hugely popular in China, has been eclipsed by the rise of lower-priced rival smartphones from Samsung and Chinese companies. The iPhone 5S and 5C will go on sale in Apple stores and China Mobile stores beginning Jan. 17. The iPhone, while popular around the world, has faced tough competition in recent years from cheaper smartphones running Googleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Android software.

Pipe bomb blast shakes peace hopes JERUSALEM â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A pipe bomb believed to have been planted by Palestinian militants exploded Sunday on board a bus in central Israel just moments after it had been evacuated, police said, in the most serious attack inside Israel in more than a year. The explosion came at a sensitive time in Mideast peace efforts. Israel and the Palestinians resumed talks last summer for the first time in nearly five years, and the U.S.brokered negotiations have made little visible progress. The explosion threatened to further poison what has become a tense and negative atmosphere. Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said there were no injuries in the blast.

She said it takes months to vet judicial appointees and even longer for judges to get up to speed. Congress has aggressively boosted funding for immigration enforcement and detention, with the Obama administration deporting some 360,000 people last year. Yet, the courts have seen few additional resources. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s even as caseloads have jumped 15 percent since 2011, according to Executive Office for Immigra-

tion Review Director Juan Osuna, who testified before a congressional subcommittee. As far back as 2008, a Georgetown Immigration Law Journal article surveying immigration judges found they exhibited more burnout â&#x20AC;&#x153;than prison wardens and physicians in busy hospitals.â&#x20AC;? The judges blamed the stress on the pressure to adjudicate so many cases â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and decide the fate of so many lives â&#x20AC;&#x201D; in such little time.

Sanctions crippling Iran’s future

A first step Proposing funding for all-day kindergarten is one thing; making sure it survives the legislative session is another matter.


aving the governor voice support for funding all-day kindergarten across the state is a good start for the upcoming session of the Kansas Legislature, but the real test will come at the end of the session when the kindergarten funding either is or isn’t included in the final budget legislation signed by the governor. Earlier this week, Gov. Sam Brownback proposed having the state provide $80 million over the next five years to fully fund all-day kindergarten. Brownback said the proposal came out of meetings he recently held with selected legislators and school officials. That’s not surprising; educators are well aware that all-day kindergarten is a tried and true way to improve student achievement throughout their school years. Presumably, Brownback will include the kindergarten funding in the budget he presents next month. What happens after that, however, may test the governor’s resolve to keep the kindergarten funds in next year’s budget. It would be too bad if the kindergarten funds met a fate similar to increased higher education funding that was included in Brownback’s budget last January. Although Brownback voiced support for additional funds and even toured the state near the end of the session to tout his position, he nonetheless ended up signing a budget that didn’t include the higher education boost. Proposing funding for all-day kindergarten is a good first step, but Brownback then has to exercise the necessary leadership to gain legislative approval for the proposal. Is the all-day kindergarten proposal important enough to withstand what is shaping up as another tight budget year? Property tax revenue to fund K-12 schools is falling below expectations, and a supplemental allocation probably will be necessary just to get through the current year. A ruling is expected soon from the Kansas Supreme Court in a lawsuit that claims the state isn’t meeting its constitutional obligation on school funding. If the court orders additional state funding for K-12 schools, will the governor stand firm on his all-day kindergarten proposal or allow it to fall by the wayside? Or perhaps employ some questionable funding tactic similar to the recent decision to divert funds from general assistance programs for needy Kansas families to support a program aimed at improving student reading skills? Proposing funding for all-day kindergarten is one thing; making that funding a reality is another matter. It will be interesting to see whether, or in what form, this proposal survives the upcoming session.

OLD HOME TOWN From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Dec. 23, 1913: “All plans have been completed for the Second Annual Christmas YEARS Concert by the First Regimental AGO Band. Director J. C. McCanless IN 1913 this morning announced the program which is to be played on this occasion. It is indeed a carefully selected program and the band is sure to score a triumph in this concert. ... The band played to a full house last year and another should greet the musicians on Friday night.”

TEHRAN — The Iranian economy manages to hobble along despite “crippling” economic sanctions. The streets are clogged with traffic, ATMs dispense streams of cash, banks issue Iran-only debit cards, and a nation of traders finds ingenious ways to evade legal obstacles. Oil exports may have collapsed officially, but several Iranians tell me that many thousands of barrels are leaking out secretly via Iraq. One Iranian businessman explains that you can get under-the-table financing for almost anything if you pay an interest-rate premium of 12 to 15 percentage points. The true burden of sanctions is that this economy is a shadow of what it might be. This cost in lost opportunity will only grow if Iran can’t make a nuclear deal that would ease the squeeze on oil sales and banking. And Iranians know it: Many told me during a visit here last week that their economy could be booming if the country wasn’t so isolated. “The situation from the economic point of view is very bad, this is no secret,” says Saeed Laylaz, an economic commentator and analyst who advises Iran’s domestic automobile industry. Car production has plummeted the last two years, he says, after rising from 6,000 vehicles annually when he started in 1989 to 1.5 million in 2011. Mohammad Khoshchehreh, an economics professor

David Ignatius

The true burden of sanctions is that this economy is a shadow of what it might be.” at Tehran University, told me that economic output overall has fallen by about 6 percent over the past year. That’s close to the estimate of a 5.7 percent drop released Thursday by the Institute of International Finance in Washington. The middle class here is especially squeezed. An apartment for a family of four in central Tehran costs at least $500 a month. Feeding the family adds another $700. So that’s $1,200 a month — more than many jobs pay — before the family even begins paying for incidentals. Typically, both husband and wife must work, often at two jobs, to pay the bills. Frustration about poor economic performance seems to center on hard-liners such as former President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and his allies in the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps. Several people mentioned to me that during Ahmadinejad’s

eight years as president, the Iranian government received about $700 billion from oil sales. Where did that money go? A half-dozen people said they thought much of it had been diverted to the Revolutionary Guard or looted by regime cronies. “I do not deny the effect of sanctions, but the weight of mismanagement is heavier,” says Khoshchehreh. Some here argue that the current crisis is past, and that officials of the Ahmadinejad regime should be brought to trial for corruption. President Hassan Rouhani gets good marks for economic management, in addition to his opening to the West in the nuclear negotiations. Since his election in June, inflation is down, private investment is up, and the currency has strengthened on the black market, according to Laylaz. Iranians foresee a future boom if sanctions are lifted and the nation fully joins the global economy. Four economic analysts separately told me they could see growth at 10 percent or more after 2015, if Rouhani can deliver a deal with the West. That’s the real leverage — not to punish Iran today but to open the door to a much more prosperous future. Talks with Iranian entrepreneurs give a sense of what’s possible. A professor of molecular biology has developed advanced techniques for treating neurodegenerative diseases that

Freedom, security go together In his classic novel “1984,” George Orwell warned about the evils of a totalitarian state dominated by a single ruling party with total power over its inhabitants. Oceania, his fictional superstate, is under complete surveillance by the authorities. The character known as “Big Brother” reminds everyone he is constantly monitoring the citizens of Oceania, mainly by “telescreen.” At the end of 2013, the federal government may not yet have telescreens, which in Orwell’s imagination had the ability to eavesdrop on people’s conversations and broadcast propaganda, but it does have the nonfiction poses of querying and analyzing it without prior judicial approval. Surely, such a program infringes on that degree of privacy that the founders enshrined in the Fourth Amendment.” President Obama has said, “Nobody is listening to your telephone calls.” He named a panel to review the NSA’s methods and the balance tween privacy and security. The draft report, expected Freedom is a to be released next month, seems to favor privacy over precious commodity. security. A recent Wall Street Like virtue, once it is editorial, “Disarmgiven up it is difficult, Journal ing Surveillance,” supports if not impossible, to the NSA’s actions and thinks the board Obama appointed regain.” is making recommendations that would make data collecequivalent — data collection, tion impossible, and us more drones and other technologi- vulnerable. cal invasions of privacy.

ernment “devil”? NSA Director Keith Alexander claims 50 potential attacks were prevented because of the government’s surveillance programs, but we only have his word for it. “If you like your privacy you can keep it” wouldn’t sound any more credible coming from Alexander than it did coming from the president when he gave us his line about keeping our doctors. Freedom is a precious commodity. Like virtue, once it is given up it is difficult, if not impossible, to regain. A government that regularly attempts to encroach on our right to privacy must be restrained by the people. Additional hearings should be held on this critical issue and they should be nonpartisan, as difficult as that may be heading into another election season. Jihadists don’t discriminate between political parties. They have vowed to kill as many Americans as possible. Striking the right balance between security and freedom is critical to both. Recent history provides numerous examples of nations that have traded freedom for security and gotten neither. What must be avoided is the kind of thinking Orwell warned against: “Doublethink means the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one’s mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them.” Freedom and security should not be contradictory, but complimentary. In an age of terrorism, this “devil” is really in the details. — Cal Thomas is a columnist for Tribune Content Agency.

Western companies are eager to license. He’d rather stay in Iran, but it’s difficult to build an advanced biotech company here when the country remains outside the World Trade Organization and intellectual property can’t be protected. An Iranian banker explains that he’s ready to represent 19 U.S. companies in joint ventures here. But such deals are dead until sanctions are lifted. An Iranian-American executive tells me he could sell Iran advanced systems that could add billion of barrels to oil reserves by reevaluating old seismic and geological data. It’s a mistake to underestimate the tensile strength of Iran’s economy. This is a country that survived eight years of bloody war with Iraq, and Iranians know how to suffer through adversity. Rouhani’s economic team is planning its next budget on the assumption that sanctions won’t be lifted, and that it can raise non-oil exports — iron ore, copper, petrochemicals and electricity — to an $80 billion level that would cover Iran’s import needs. They’ll survive, in other words. What’s being crippled is Iran’s future. This makes Iranians angry, especially when they see the hard-liners and their cronies making money evading the sanctions regime. That’s the regime’s weak point. — David Ignatius is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.


Loss of trust To the editor: While campaigning for the ACA, how many times did we hear President Obama declare that if you like your doctor or health care plan, you can keep it — period! We have since discovered that this is not true. We are told the president misspoke. It is his bill, his signature accomplishment and his legacy. How could he have misspoken so many times? I believe that President Obama lied and deliberately deceived the American people in order to pass his health care plan. If Mr. Obama didn’t know, then neither is his ignorance understood or forgiven. While I share President Obama’s desire that all Americans have adequate health care, his ACA was passed on a lie. The American justice system demands that it be declared fraudulent and therefore be repealed. Where is the outrage from our media and elected government officials? When there were no weapons of mass destruction found in Iraq, George W. Bush was branded a liar. Do Democrats misspeak, but Republicans lie? If a physician, lawyer, teacher, parent or any person of authority knowlingly lies, they forfeit their position of leadership. They can no longer be trusted. They must be reprimanded, prosecuted or forced to resign. How can our military leaders pledge loyalty to their commander in chief? How can our elected Democratic party officials condone this breach of honesty, decency and law? Doing the right thing in Washington has been replaced by doing the right thing for my party and me. The American people do not like to be lied to, especially by our own president. Tom Moskow, Lawrence

‘Break’ means gym time for KU


Holiday giving

By Gary Bedore

Kansas University’s basketball players, who have headed home for four days worth of holiday cheer, will gather again Thursday for the first of many practices the next four weeks. “We’ll practice a lot more. We’ll spend more time in the gym. We’ll have shooting practices, certainly do more film work,” KU coach Bill Self said. He will be allowed to schedule unlimited hours of practice time, in accordance with NCAA rules, from Thursday until the start of second semester classes on Jan. 21. “I think you get better because of the time and all you’re doing is just focusing on basketball,” said Self, whose Jayhawks (8-3) will play two nonconference games (Toledo a week from today and San Diego State on Jan. 5) as well as four conference games (at Oklahoma on Jan. 8; Kansas State on Jan. 11; at Iowa State on Jan 13; Oklahoma State on Jan. 18; and Baylor on Jan. 20) before the start of the spring semester. “I think it (semester break) is the toughest time to be a student-athlete if you’re here because nobody else is, so all your friends or your girlfriend or family, they’re all back doing their deal, and you’re basically spending two weeks here,” Self added. “Last year was a long time. We started back to school the 21st, something like that, so we were here almost four weeks with no classes, and that was not good. That was too long. A couple of weeks is plenty of time.” The Jayhawks normally make a lot of progress in between semesters. “Oh, yes, we’ve always gotten better over Christmas. Last year was the one year we didn’t,” Self said. “If you go back and study our team last year, we were great in December. Great. You look at Belmont, Richmond, Ohio State, Colorado … those were big-time performances (victories) throughout the entire month of December. “You get into January, we were fortunate to beat Iowa State. We puttered around then we started that little three-game — not little, monstrous — three-game losing streak there for a stretch,” he added of losses to Oklahoma State, TCU and Oklahoma. “I really think that last year was the one year where we did not get better over break.

KANSAS UNIVERSITY FORWARD CHELSEA GARDNER (15) SNATCHES A REBOUND away from Tulsa guard Ashley Clark during the Jayhawks’ 82-78 victory on Sunday in Allen Fieldhouse.

Harper’s 13 assists spark Jayhawks By Matt Tait

CeCe Harper insists it had nothing to do with the holidays, but the Kansas University senior guard sure was in a giving mood during Sunday’s 82-78 victory over Tulsa at Allen Fieldhouse. Harper, who still is adjusting to the demands of playing point guard for this young Kansas squad, recorded her first career doubledouble, high- Harper lighted by a career-best 13 assists. “I think I’m just starting to get into the point-guard mentality more,” said Harper, who added 15 points and five rebounds and said heading home to her mom and dad for the holidays was the best gift she has ever given. “I’m really trying to get

KANSAS RESERVES CAELYNN MANNING-ALLEN, LEFT, and Bunny Williams cheer from the bench late in the second half. shots for others rather than myself.” That concept, which is absolutely crucial for Kansas, is nothing new for Harper, who played point guard exclusively during her high school career. But it is new in a sense,

given that Harper spent the past few years watching Angel Goodrich work her magic as the Jayhawks’ point guard. Sunday, Harper looked Goodrich-esque in the way she set up teammates for easy buckets and helped hold off a

scrappy Tulsa team that refused to be knocked out. The Jayhawks (6-5) opened with a 9-0 spurt and started the second half with an 8-2 run, but neither enticed Tulsa to fold. KU never trailed but had to fight like mad to maintain a three-to-seven-point cushion down the stretch. Things looked momentarily bleak after Tulsa’s Ashley Clark cashed two free throws with 1:01 to play to pull the Golden Hurricane within 78-76. Moments later, when KU’s Asia Boyd (game-high 22 points on 7-of-11 shooting) fired up a wild shot with 35 seconds to play, Tulsa raced down the floor looking to tie or take the lead. But a scrum in the paint near the Tulsa basket allowed Harper to come out with the ball, and she raced up the floor with the game clock ticking down to 20 seconds and KU up by two.

Chiefs not fazed by loss to Colts

CHIEFS QUARTERBACK ALEX SMITH (11) FALLS on wide receiver Junior Hemingway after being tackled by Colts free safety Darius Butler in the Chiefs’ 23-7 loss on Sunday in Kansas City, Mo.

KANSAS CITY, MO. (AP) — After a haphazard performance filled with penalties and turnovers, the Kansas City Chiefs had every reason to feel glum about a potential playoff rematch with the Indianapolis Colts. Veteran linebacker Derrick Johnson was taking a decidedly different approach. “They’ve got the upper hand on us right now because in their minds they think they can beat us,” he said after the Chiefs’ 23-7 loss to Indianapolis on Sunday. “If we go down there, it will be a different story. But we’ve got to fight our way back.”

Jamaal Charles ran for 106 yards and the game’s first score, but the Chiefs (11-4) didn’t do much the rest of the way. Instead, Andrew Luck threw for 241 yards, and Donald Brown had TDs on the ground and through the air as the Colts (10-5) scored the game’s final 23 points. Alex Smith threw for 153 yards, but he fumbled once and was picked off twice after throwing just six interceptions his first 14 games. Knile Davis also fumbled the ball away for Kansas City. “I think it was a team effort in not a very good way,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid said.

“You can’t pull your foot off the accelerator when you go out that quick. You have to keep going.” The Chiefs vowed to do that if the teams meet again in two weeks. Kansas City is assured of the No. 5 seed in the playoffs after Denver beat Houston earlier Sunday to wrap up the AFC West and the No. 1 seed. That means the Chiefs would head to Lucas Oil Stadium for a wild-card game if the Colts end up as the No. 4 seed. “I know we’ll have some motivation. Definitely,” Chiefs offensive lineman

Geoff Schwartz said. “They might think we’re one team, but we’ll be back in a couple of weeks.” Early on, the Chiefs appeared as if they were going to pick up right where they left off last week, when they hung 56 points on the Raiders. They marched downfield on the opening drive, and Charles took a carry around the right side 31 yards for a touchdown. The Colts defense stiffened after that, though, and the closest Kansas City came to scoring again in the first Please see CHIEFS, page 3B

Manning secures another record: 51


By Paul Klee The (Colorado Springs, Colo.) Gazette

HOUSTON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The football was not in his locker. It was worth checking, anyway. Alas, one hour after he dropped a 25-yard handoff into the oversized mitts of Julius Thomas, the 51st touchdown pass of the ultimate quarterbackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s historic season, only three things remained in his aluminum cubby. His nameplate â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Peyton Manning, 18 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; stripped off and tossed in a garbage bin as the Broncos left the premises. A vanity mirror, to assist in tying the perfect knot in his necktie. A clothes hanger, collected and then kept, for memoryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sake, by the Reliant Stadium janitorial staff. But the football? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hopefully the Hall of Fame will send the ball back when somebody throws for more,â&#x20AC;? Manning said after the Broncosâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 37-13 win against the Texans. These footballs are valuable, coveted commodities. They are the footballs of records, and Manning set another one Sunday under the open roof of Reliant Stadium: Fifty-one touchdown passes, an NFL record. Nobodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s thrown more, not in a single season. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one more than nemesis and respected friend Tom Brady in 2007. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two more than Manningâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s previous career-high, which had set the record in 2004. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 51 footballs of record to account for. They all look the same, made by Wilson, with the scribbled autograph of Roger Goodell, Commissioner. But heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s thrown them for touchdowns in 51 different ways. He started with seven touchdowns against Baltimore in the season opener, tying another NFL record, and capped it off, at least until next week at Oakland, with four touchdowns Sunday. Manning described No. 51 like a golfer might describe the hole where he made eagle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had Julius out wide, split by himself, four receivers to the other side. Obviously it makes the defense have a discussion. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a couple receivers over there, (so) youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to put your corners over there. (And) put a linebacker on Julius. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always a tough matchup for any linebacker, as athletic as he is.â&#x20AC;? No. 18 suggested No. 51 is going to the Hall of Fame. The man who caught No. 51 suggested he was unaware it was No. 51. After catching the football, Thomas tumbled into a photographer. He rose, dropped the football and danced. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I come back to the sidelines and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sitting down on the bench and somebody says, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;That was the one!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I said, Oh,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Thomas said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Maybe I shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have just dropped it so carelessly. Maybe I should have kept it.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;It wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t surprise me if Julius would have handed the ball to some babe up in the stands and tried to get her phone number,â&#x20AC;? Manning cracked. Thanks to the Chiefsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; loss Sunday, the Broncos clinched the AFC West title for the third-straight season. They will have a first-round bye for the playoffs, then at least one game at home, where Manning has thrown 27 of his 51 touchdown footballs. Thanks to Manning, the Hall of Fame will have a new football, at least until some young buck, or Manning next season, comes along and breaks the record again. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was a spectacular throw,â&#x20AC;? vice president of football operations John Elway said outside the locker room. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The other 50 were, too.â&#x20AC;?

Obama takes in Akron-Oregon State game HONOLULU â&#x20AC;&#x201D; President Barack Obama and the first family momentarily skipped the beach in Hawaii to take in a college basketball game. Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama and daughters Sasha and Malia attended the Oregon State-Akron game Sunday at the Diamond Head Classic tournament in Honolulu. Oregon State is coached by Michelle Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brother, Craig Robinson. The Obamas sat just behind the Oregon State bench. The Obamas drew a standing ovation and loud cheers as they walked in to the small arena at the University of Hawaii. Fans took pictures while press photographers and videographers crowded an entrance to take pictures. Obama is a noted basketball fan and recreational player.


Hollywood Park closes



Bears DT Melton arrested GRAPEVINE, TEXAS â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Chicago Bears defensive tackle Henry Melton was charged with assault and public intoxication after refusing to leave a bar and fighting with employees in a Dallas suburb. Grapevine police Sgt. Robert Eberling said Melton was arrested early Sunday at Chill Sports Bar after becoming belligerent. The nearly 300-pound Melton, who suffered a cut nose but declined treatment, was freed on $1,210 bond. The 27-year-old Melton allegedly punched the manager in the face and bit his arm, Eberling said. The manager wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seriously hurt. Eberling said four bar staffers restrained Melton until police arrived.

A&M suspends freshman LB COLLEGE STATION, TEXAS â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Texas A&M suspended standout freshman linebacker Darian Claiborne after he was arrested on two drugpossession charges. Claiborne was arrested Sunday on charges of possession of a dangerous drug and possession of less than two ounces of marijuana, according to the Brazos County Jail website. He was arrested at about 3 p.m. and released less than two hours later after posting $6,000 bond. Claiborne, tied for the team lead with 89 tackles, will miss the Chick-Fil-A Bowl against Duke on Dec. 31.


Houston coach resigns

Irish scoring leader ineligible

HOUSTON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Houston womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball coach Todd Buchanan has resigned for personal reasons. School officials announced his departure Saturday night. He was in his fourth year leading the Cougars, going 46-56. Houston is 4-7 this season. Assistant head coach Wade Scott, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in his eighth season at Houston, will serve as interim head coach. Scott previously coached at Western Oklahoma State College, Clarendon College and Grayson County College.

SOUTH BEND, IND. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Notre Dame will enter its first season in the Atlantic Coast Conference without leading scorer Jerian Grant. The university posted a statement from Grant on its website Sunday evening that said he is no longer enrolled at Notre Dame â&#x20AC;&#x153;due to an academic matter that I did not handle properly.â&#x20AC;? Grant is the second high-profile athlete to be suspended from Notre Dame in the past year for academics. Quarterback Everett Golson was suspended from school for the fall semester for academic impropriety, but was readmitted on Dec. 13.

KANSAS UNIVERSITY GUARD ASIA BOYD (0) GETS A SHOT OFF after splitting a double team by Tulsa’s Stevi Parker (21) and Ashley Clark during KU’s 82-78 victory on Sunday in Allen Fieldhouse.


Bonnie Henrickson was begging Harper to slow it up. But with Boyd on her left, the senior pushed the pace and dished her final assist of the day. There were a few free throws that followed, but the aggressive play essentially iced the victory. “When it was happening, I didn’t hear her,” Harper said of Henrickson’s pleas. “But it was kind of my mentality to push, so ... ” As it turned out, Henrickson had no problem with it. “I was trying to do the best stop sign I could there,” Henrickson said. “I’d rather her dribble around for eight more seconds and make ’em chase you a little bit, but, honestly, (being aggressive is) in most players’ nature.” Harper was one of four Jayhawks to reach double figures, and, as it turned out, KU needed just about every point it got to hold off the Golden Hurricane (4-4). Junior forward Chelsea Gardner (18 points, eight rebounds) controlled the paint for Kansas, which shot 53 percent (including 5-of-14 from three-point land) and outrebounded Tulsa 35-30. Boyd also continued her hot play of late, leading the Jayhawks in scoring and also adding five rebounds, five assists, a block and a steal. Despite the productive and balanced offensive showing — junior guard Natalie Knight scored 11 points, and freshman Keyla Morgan chipped in

nine — Henrickson was more concerned about her team’s defensive issues, given that just one game remains — 2 p.m. Sunday vs. Yale — before the Jayhawks jump into Big 12 play. “For them to come in here and score 78 points is alarming to me,” Henrickson said. “If we’re gonna score 82, I’d like to win. Yes, we did it tonight, but I’m not sure that’s gonna bode very well for us if we don’t (address) defensively where we broke down so bad.”

half came when Ryan Succop yanked a 47-yard field goal wide left. “Anytime you can play the type of game we played today, against a playoff team in a hostile environment, it speaks to the character of our football team,” Colts coach Chuck Pagano said. “They stick to the process and stay focused on the process.” Indianapolis kept taking advantage of breakdowns in the Kansas City pass defense, the most glaring one coming after Davis fumbled in the second quarter. Brown leaked out of the backfield unnoticed by the Kansas City defense, Luck hit him with a dump-off pass that he took virtually untouched 33 yards for a score. “I can’t tell you why we came out here and performed the way we don Flowers said. “We did today, we just did,” should have come out and Chiefs cornerback Bran- matched their intensity.”

I don’t know if it’s because of any one thing. We just didn’t. But most other years we’ve been a team that basically kicked it in when we had a chance to spend some time together.” Self said on days he will hold two-a-days, the first practice “won’t be too early. I don’t like practicing early. We’ll practice at 10 (a.m.) and practice at 5 (p.m.), something like that.” This week’s holiday break comes at a good time for several Jayhawks. Sophomore Andrew White III has been bothered by a bruised hip and junior Naadir Tharpe a shoulder bruise. Sophomore Perry Ellis took a shot to the back of the head and suffered disorientation early in the second half of Saturday’s victory over Georgetown. Also, Self pointed out that freshman Wayne Selden has had some aches and pains in his first semester of college. “I thought Wayne was the best newcomer we had for a period of time when we first started practicing, and I thought he hit a little bit of a wall, and then against Duke he was just fabulous,” Self said. The 6-foot-5 guard from Roxbury, Mass., had 15 points, six rebounds and four assists in a 94-83 win over Duke on Nov. 12 in Chicago. “Since the Duke game, I think he’s been up and down. His health hasn’t been great, but it’s not anything structurally that’s bothering him. He just hasn’t been able to ... whether it’s a hip pointer here or this or that, he just probably hasn’t felt 100 percent much in the last month or so. “I would say he’s been up and down. But just like all freshmen are, the difference is with our freshmen that play a lot — the past freshmen that played a lot, when they were up, they played, when they were down, they sat. And whether you’re up or down, you play. “So that’s one reason why I think the opinion is that maybe he has gone under the radar a little bit because that’s honestly been the case,” Self added of Selden, who has averaged 8.7 points off 49.3 percent shooting and 3.0 rebounds while playing 25.7 minutes per contest. “He’s a good player, and he’s getting better all the time in practice, getting comfortable. I think he will be a guy that will benefit from a few days off and then benefit from a lot of time in the gym, because these kids, it’s a different deal when kids come in and they’re used to playing 25 minutes a game and practicing 80 minutes a day, and that’s about the extent of it. “Now everything is so magnified, bodies aren’t quite used to taking that pounding. I think he could use a few days off.” O

Staying in town: Cameroon native Joel Embiid, who is the only Jayhawk to not head for his hometown for the holiday, might be worth following on Twitter the next few days. On Saturday, he tweeted: “Watching the volleyball national championship but I’m officially bored..... Everyone left me alone.” ... “Finally got my PS4,” he tweeted on Sunday.

NORTH CAROLINA CENTRAL’S JORDAN PARKS (2) FOULS WICHITA STATE’S RON BAKER during the second half of the Shockers’ 77-66 victory on Sunday in Wichita.


Shocks roll to 12-0 The Associated Press

No. 11 Wichita State 77, NC Central 66 WICHITA — Darius Carter scored 19 points to help Wichita State survive Jeremy Ingram’s 37-point night on Sunday. Cleanthony Early had 16 points and 10 rebounds as the Shockers (12-0) extended the best start in school history. Ron Baker scored 15 points for Wichita State and Fred VanVleet added 14. North Carolina Central (7-3) was outrebounded 37-22, including a 15-3 disparity on the offensive glass. Ingram was 12-of-21 from the floor and 7-of-13 from three-point range. He scored 27 points in the second half. While there certainly wasn’t panic, there was some concern for Wichita State a few minutes into that second half. It wasn’t just that Ingram, one of the nation’s leading scorers, was heating up, it’s that he was doing it against Tekele Cotton, the Shockers’ top defender. Ingram had a four-point play 16 seconds into the half and drew another foul on Cotton while scoring less than two minutes later. When Ingram hit a three-pointer with 16:59 remaining to get the Eagles within 44-36, he already had 10 points in the half, 20 in the game, and had cut Wichita State’s 16-point halftime lead in half. The Eagles did not score again for four minutes but stayed within striking distance. Ingram scored five straight points, and the Shockers led 54-46 with 8:21 remaining.

Steve Smith, Von Miller, Jake Long sidelined due to knee injuries The Associated Press

Carolina top receiver Steve Smith, Denver star linebacker Von Miller and St. Louis prized left tackle Jake Long all were forced to leave games Sunday because of knee injuries. Also, Detroit cornerback Bill Bentley was being evaluated for a head injury after a frightening collision. He was able to walk off the field with some assistance. Long was carted off the field after hurting his right knee on the Rams’ first offensive series in a 23-13 win over Tampa Bay. Coach Jeff Fisher said he thought Long tore a ligament, adding, “We are anticipating the worst.” Long’s knee appeared to give out on pass protection against the Buccaneers’ Adrian Clayborn. Long has started every game this season and was the first overall pick of the 2008 draft by Miami. He is finishing the first season of a two-year free agent deal. Smith was hurt during a 17-13 win over New Orleans that clinched the Panthers’ first playoff spot since 2008.

Dear Annie: For the past several years, my husband has taken out a new credit card each January and maxed it out over the next 12 months. This has resulted in major debt, which I fear will devastate our family and possibly affect our children and grandchildren. My husband is a good and caring person who often picks up the restaurant tabs for our friends and family and buys them gifts they could buy for themselves. As a result, he is extremely popular. If I try to limit these unnecessary expenses, everyone thinks I’m a spoilsport. We are approaching the time where he will apply for another new credit card. Should I prohibit this until we reach some agreement on budget cuts? Should I let him go ahead and get the new card and then try to negotiate budget

cuts? Or do I keep on trucking as usual and hope for the best? — Concerned Spouse Dear Spouse: If you are going into debt, please don’t shove this under the carpet until you are living on the street. Your husband seems to be a compulsive buyer, and it can be similar to other addictions that require effort to overcome. Is he willing to recognize and address the problem? (Therapy can help.) Would he be willing to let you handle the fam-

‘Sing-Off’ and ‘Light Fight’ conclude With the big day just two days away, holiday-themed series wrap up just in time for networks to embark on their long winter’s nap. One of the three groups appearing on tonight’s finale of “The Sing-Off” (7 p.m., NBC) emerges triumphant. Four families remain in “The Great Christmas Light Fight” (8 p.m., ABC), a Griswold-esque take on holiday displays. Just for good measure, NBC throws in a holiday helping of last summer’s guilty pleasure series “Hollywood Game Night” (9 p.m.). Tonight’s episode, “T’was the Game Night Before Christmas,” features party games played by Ray Romano, Cheryl Hines, Gavin DeGraw, Rachel Bilson, Andy Roddick and Brooklyn Decker. Somewhere in that great “Hollywood Squares” set in the sky, Paul Lynde must be looking down with approval.

“Treehouse Masters” (9 p.m., Animal Planet) visits a California couple who have fashioned a Santa’s workshop in the treetops and even manufacture some North Pole snow in the desert.

Drew Scott and Jonathan Scott (HGTV’s “Property Brothers”) host the five-part “Top 50 Country Countdown” (9 p.m., GAC), a glance back at the year’s most popular country songs. “Countdown” airs Monday to Friday and repeats as a marathon on Saturday.

Tonight’s other highlights

An undercover operation is exposed on “Almost Human” (7 p.m., Fox).

The green gang sings carols on “Shrek the Halls” (7 p.m., ABC).

A single woman gets more than she bargained for when she discovers that her son asks a radio station to help her find true love on “Under the Mistletoe” (7 p.m., Lifetime).

Alvin, Simon and Theodore get a chance to perform at Carnegie Hall on Christmas on “A Chipmunk Christmas” (7:30 p.m., ABC).

The San Francisco 49ers host the Atlanta Falcons on “Monday Night Football” (7:25 p.m., ESPN).

Songs of the season and Scandinavian favorites take center stage on “Christmas in Norway With the St. Olaf Choir” (8 p.m., PBS, check local listings).

The 2010 special “The Real Story of Christmas” (8 p.m., H2,) looks at the religious and pagan origins of holiday traditions — from tree decorating to the story of Santa Claus.

The Robertsons participate in a Nativity pageant on “Duck Dynasty” (10 p.m., A&E).

BIRTHDAYS Emperor Akihito of Japan is 80. Pro and College Football Hall of Famer Paul Hornung is 78. Actress Susan Lucci is 67. Singer-musician Adrian Belew is 64. The former first lady of France, Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, is 46. Actor Spencer Daniels is 21.

Dear Annie: Fifteen years ago, our daughter married a truly nice guy, and they made it clear right away that they didn’t want “drop-in” visitors. I understood this, as they both work full time. Three years ago, they bought a large home close to us, but in all the years they’ve been married, we can count on one hand the number of times we’ve been invited over for anything, including the kids’ birthdays, cookouts, etc. Yet I know my daughter’s inlaws are often invited. Our grandchildren ask why we never come to their house, and I simply


For Monday, Dec. 23 This year you often think in lofty terms when deciding how to invigorate your life. If you are single, a new door opens, and you will meet many new people as a result. If you are attached, the two of you love being together and often plan a date night alone together. The stars show the kind of day you’ll have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult Aries (March 21-April 19)  A discussion in the morning will encourage you and a partner to clear up the remaining holiday details. By midafternoon, the Christmas spirit hits you. Tonight: Invite a friend over to swap gifts. Taurus (April 20-May 20)  Your mood appears to be contagious. You will need to jump over an obstacle that might involve a loved one’s resistance. Tonight: Indulge a loved one. Gemini (May 21-June 20)  Honor what is going on with a parent or older relative. An unanticipated expense emerges out of the blue, which will encourage you to curb any frivolous spending. Tonight: Honor a change. Cancer (June 21-July 22)  You’ll express the fervor of the holidays and engage others to join in. A child or loved one could be cantankerous at best, but you’ll help even this person out. Tonight: With loved ones. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)  You’ll be thinking ahead with the understanding that a road block is about to appear. You will move through your errands and other matters efficiently. Tonight: At home. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

 You express unusual vitality and excitement about the next few days. Your creativity seems to feed off the holiday. Tonight: Celebrate. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  A hassle might become bigger than it really is because of fatigue and boredom with an issue. Let it go for a while, and build up your stamina. Tonight: Drop in on an older relative. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  Friends surround you. Hopefully you are not in the position of doing last-minute shopping, but rather off enjoying a holiday event. Tonight: Music, lights and mistletoe set the scene. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)  Tension builds as expenses seem to multiply. You must meet certain responsibilities, no matter what. Tonight: Visit with someone you won’t see for a while. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)  If you kick back and detach, a last-minute problem will solve itself. You also will understand more of the mechanics of the issue. Tonight: Let the fun continue. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  Your role might be more pivotal than you realize. You could have a lot of errands to take care of, while someone makes an important request. A partner might offer to pitch in. Tonight: Quality time with a loved one. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)  You might have special plans. Unfortunately, others don’t seem to realize that fact, or you have not shared it with them. Tonight: The only answer is “yes.”

JUST TESTING By Arthur Goodwill


say it’s because we’re never invited. What should I say? — Confused in Indiana Dear Indiana: Please stop manipulating the children to get to the parents, which is exactly what you are doing when you tell them you’re “never invited.” Instead, talk to your daughter. Ask whether there is a problem and what you can do about it. She may have reasons for keeping you at a distance, so please make her understand that you cannot fix things if you don’t know what the issues are. If she still doesn’t invite you to her place, ask whether the children can visit at your house. As long as you can see your family, it really doesn’t matter ACROSS where. — Send questions to, or Annie’s Mailbox, P.O. Box 118190 Chicago, IL 60611.
