Critics bash college social media policy ———

Regents chairman counters that new language protects First Amendment and academic freedoms By Ben Unglesbee

Scrambling as faculty leave for the holidays, some at Kansas public universities have taken action protesting the so-

cial media policy passed by the Kansas Board of Regents last week. The Regents approved the policy last Wednesday partly as a response to the anti-NRA tweet by Kansas University jour-

nalism professor David Guth. It allows university heads to fire faculty and staff who post messages on social media that conflict with the institution’s best interests and efficient operations.

Philip Nel, a Kansas State distinguished professor of English, helped write a letter addressed to the regents calling for the immediate repeal of the policy. “By revoking the faculty and staff’s right to freedom of speech, the new social media policy is an affront to academic freedom and academic excellence,” it stated.

O Universities charged

with enforcing the new restrictions. Page 3A The letter was signed by more than 40 distinguished K-State professors. In an interview Nel said every faculty member who responded had signed the letter, and even more faculty members, who had been traveling or on vacation,

had responded later wanting their names put on the letter. “Every faculty member with which I’ve spoken has expressed the same outrage I have,” Nel said. Along with concerns about academic freedom, the letter noted concerns that the social media policy could undermine Please see POLICY, page 2A

DOUG HOLIDAY, OWNER OF BIGGS BBQ, was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma at the end of the summer. After months of treatment, he’s cancer free. In the photo at left, Doug’s sons — Jacob, 16, Seth, 19, and Ben, 13 — shaved their heads to match their dad in August.

Cancer defeated, hunger next By Elliot Hughes

You could forgive Doug Holiday, the amiable owner of Bigg’s Barbecue on Iowa Street, if he took this year off from his annual charitable efforts — smoking 50 turkeys for a free Christmas Day dinner at First United Methodist Church that feeds a thousand mouths. The second half of 2013 brought a bout with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, which Holiday won, but 600 hours of chemotherapy still weigh on him considerably. His wife, Shawn, says that during his treatment the goal was to at least make it to the holidays. Now that he has — not a trace of the cancer remains, Doug says — it’s a matter of

getting the family’s life back to where it was. That means they’ll pick up their tradition of smoking those turkeys, as they’ve done for nearly a decade. “There was never a thought in my mind or his mind that he would ever not participate in the community dinner,” Shawn says of the one organized by the Community Christmas Dinner Committee. Doug, 51, was diagnosed in July. He quickly began an aggressive treatment for an aggressive illness. One of every three weeks was spent at Lawrence Memorial Hospital receiving 96 consecutive hours of chemotherapy, he said. More than a month after his last session, last weak Doug learned he was cancer free. The treatment, nevertheless, left him racked. He used to work 70 hours a week, but in the weeks afterward, he says, he was re-

duced to 10 hours or less. Now, his hair starting to come back in, Doug says he has about 60 percent of his energy back, more than enough to help ready those turkeys with Shawn and their three sons, Seth, Jacob and Ben. It’s a lot of work, but Doug and Shawn both speak about the food preparation like any other leisurely holiday tradition: with laughter and reminiscing. Doug says it requires about 12 hours of work apiece, starting Christmas Eve and running through a morning that begins before dawn. A year off could have been a blessing, but for Doug, Christmas is the essential time of year to give back. “It is a Lawrence tradition,” he says. “And even more this year — it’s even more important to me, just because I got cured ... and everybody seems to care.”

When 20-year-old Jake Leet collapsed on stage Saturday night, audience members may have thought it was scripted — after all he was playing Donkey, the most physically animated character in Theatre Lawrence’s “Shrek.” But castmates quickly realized something was wrong. Jake was not breathing and had no pulse.

His physical portrayal of Donkey — “He hurls himself around the stage with total abandon,” the Journal-World reviewer wrote of his show-stealing performance — happens within a hot, furry, padded suit. As Jake stood to sing a solo after a particularly strenuous scene in the first act, he lost his breath and keeled over backwards, his

Welcome home for the holidays By Ben Unglesbee

When Army Pfc. Tysen Fishback arrived at his Lawrence apartment Sunday evening, it “felt like a strange house to me,” he said. For the past seven months he has lived in Fort Benning,

Ga., and Fort Bragg, N.C., as he has gone through basic training and exhaustive physical preparation for special forces selection, seeing his wife and two children only when they came to visit. On Monday, after waking up in his apartment, now decked out for Christmas

with a tree and gingerbread houses, for the first time since May, he has almost been able to forget he’s in the Army. His 6-year-old son Leo was so excited to see his dad back in their home that Please see HOME, page 2A

LUKE A. PELL Luke A. Pell, age 95, of Desoto, Kansas, passed away on December 19, 2013. Luke was born July 21, 1918 in Glasgow, West Virginia. He was the seventh of eleven children born to James and Mary Pell and was the last surviving member of his family. In August, 1941, he married Elizabeth (Betty) Perkins in Washington, DC. He served in the Army Aircorp as a radio repairman during World War II and was assigned to duty in the Pacific theater. In 1948 Luke, Betty and their two older children moved from Ohio to DeSoto, Kansas. Luke worked as a journeyman electrician and was a member of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) until his retirement at age

Barrett-Gonzalez said he has heard from faculty members who are already changing their lesson plans out of concern that social media they use in classes could make them liable under the policy.

The original plan was for Fishback to fly home for Christmas.

Luke was preceded in death by his son Richard (1972), his granddaughter Kari Kennaly (1978), his wife Betty (2003) and his grandson Philip Pell (2011).

mother said. Cast and crew members rushed to his side. Someone cleared the audience from the theater. And a doctor, a nurse and other medical professionals in the audience began CPR, keeping it up until the ambulance arrived. At Lawrence Memorial Hospital, Jake’s parents learned he’d had a heart attack and was on life support in a medically induced coma. Doctors did not know how much damage had occurred, to his heart or his brain. “He looked dead when we saw him,” Teri said. “We never got to talk to him. He didn’t get to squeeze our hand,


Steadham said he has also heard from faculty members worried about social media they use in their classes. “More and more aspects of a faculty member’s job is online now,” he said. “People are worried about it.” Although nothing has materialized yet, Steadham said the policy is “shaping up to be something fairly major” on the senate’s spring agenda. The national AAUP also published a statement condemning the policy as a “gross violation of the fundamental principles of academic freedom that have been the cornerstone of American higher education for nearly a century.” The AAUP wrote that the policy “makes a mockery of faculty members’ rights to speak as public citizens on matters of public concern” and cited phrasing in the new rules that allow for dismissal if an employee’s social media speech impairs “discipline” or “harmony” within the university. The national Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, or FIRE, also chimed in on the

new policy. The FIRE letter criticized the social media rules on legal grounds, arguing that the Supreme Court has described academic freedom as a special consideration in First Amendment issues, and also challenging the “vagueness” of the rules as a potential threat to faculty’s First Amendment rights. Regents Chairman Fred Logan, the addressee on the FIRE letter, said he had not read it or the others released in recent days. But he disagreed with the characterization of the policy as a violation of academic freedom. “I think the policy was very carefully drawn to protect both First Amendment rights and academic freedom,” he said, but it also “recognized a duty to the employer.” Logan said the regents are open to additional feedback on the policy. “My view is that any policy that the board adopts is always the subject of additional conversation,” he said. “I think we’re open to changing any policy.”

Early in December he learned he would get a paid trip back to Lawrence through Operation Ride Home, a three-yearold program sponsored by Jack Daniel’s and the Armed Services YMCA. The program provides travel tickets and funds so service members and their families can see each other during the holidays. The $400 for travel through Operation Ride Home made it possible for Fishback to get some much-needed face time with his family. During the past months, Fishback has been in

anything. We were just lost.” In the waiting room, a cluster of “Shrek” characters — a few with makeup on or mic’s still attached — held each other and cried, Teri said. She was amazed by the outpouring of support, which soon started coming in via text and social media from the theater community in Topeka, Kansas City and beyond. Theatre Lawrence canceled its last performance of “Shrek” on Sunday as everyone awaited word on Jake. Doctors removed him from the ventilator Monday morning, and his mother worried: Would he be able to breathe on his own? Did he lose brain function? Would he be able to speak? “We were all hopeful, praying that he would regain consciousness,”

she said. “And he did — immediately became our Jacob.” Jake was diagnosed with Wolff-ParkinsonWhite syndrome, a heart condition in which there is an abnormal extra electrical pathway of the heart. Monday afternoon, Jake was transferred to Olathe Medical Center for a procedure to ablate the problem area, hopefully curing him of the defect for good, his mother said. Teri doesn’t know the names of everyone who sprung to action to help her son that night. But she wants them to know she is thankful. “They’re all calling it a Christmas miracle,” she said. “The true gift is all the people around him.”

State agency laying off 75 seasonal workers

It’s all downhill from here

TOPEKA (AP) — Dozens of seasonal employees at the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism were laid off the week before Christmas, the department said Monday. Department spokesman Ron Kaufman said 75 seasonal KDWPT employees were told last week that their last day of work for the department was Friday. He said they would receive their final paycheck in early January. Seasonal employees work fewer than 1,000 hours a year.

Regents policy puts universities in charge of enforcing proper use of social media By Scott Rothschild

While the Kansas Board of Regents approved a policy that could result in faculty and staff at public universities being fired over improper use of social media, it will be up to the schools to enforce it. “This is a policy making board,” said Regents Chairman Fred Logan. “We don’t get involved in personnel decisions” at the universities, he said.

L a s t week, the regents approved a policy that says a university chief executive officer can Guth discipline employees, up to termination, for social media communication that affects the university’s ability to carry out its functions. The regents approved

the measure unanimously in light of an incident in which Kansas University journalism professor David Guth created an uproar when he posted an anti-National Rifle Association tweet. Some have said the new policy is too broad and will stifle free speech, while the regents said the policy follows U.S. Supreme Court rulings on First Amendment rights. Regent Ed McKechnie said the policy wouldn’t sti-

fle academic research but was meant to put in place rules on communication on social media sites such as Twitter and Facebook, “that can be damaging and are instantaneous.” KU Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little said that discussion about the effects of the new policy will continue both at KU and the regents. Under the new policy, each university will develop Please see POLICY, page 4A

LHS debaters going to state tournament By Peter Hancock

Lawrence High School will send a team to the four-speaker state championship tournament next month. The team made up of junior Hayley Luna, junior Ellie Dunlap, senior Mark Stevens and sophomore Stefan Petrovic qualified after placing second at a 6A regional tournament Saturday in Topeka. Freshmen Bridget Smith and

Sungho Hwang were alternates but did not compete. They finished with a 4-4 record, garnering 15 ballots and 110 speaker points, narrowly edging out Free State High School, which finished in third place with an identical record, but three fewer total ballots and nine additional speaker points. There are typically three judges in each round Please see DEBATERS, page 4A

The ordinance, which the city says is designed to make sidewalks safe for pedestrians, requires that property owners or occupants remove any snow or ice from sidewalks within 48 hours after the ice forms or the snowfall ends. Residents can submit complaints or noncompliance issues starting at 8 a.m. on Thursday via the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s online code enforcement reporting system, code_violation or by calling 785-832-7700.

In four-speaker debate, teams are made up of two pairs of speakers. Before each round, the school may designate any two speakers to take the affirmative side of the resolution, and any two other speakers to argue the negative, as long as no student faces the same school more than once. Earlier this season, Luna and Dunlap had success as a two-speaker team, taking first place in the open division Nov. 8-9 at Pittsburg High School, and third place Nov. 22-23 at the Topeka High School tournament. Petrovic and Stevens won a fourth place trophy as a two-speaker team Nov. 15-16 at Shawnee Mis-

sion Northwest. Petrovic also took first place with another partner, sophomore Kaitlyn Preut, at the Washburn Rural Invitational Sept. 20-21. Stevens, with junior Hannah Lee as a partner, won a fifth place medal in open division at Shawnee Mission North Oct. 12. Meanwhile, Bishop Seabury Academy finished third at the 3A regional tournament Saturday at Silver Lake High School, falling behind Silver Lake and Rock Creek High School for a trip to the 3A championships to be held in Fort Scott.

The 6A state tournament for both four-speaker and two-speaker competitions will held Jan. 17-18 at Blue Valley High School in Overland Park.

JACK TRAN, OWNER OF LAWRENCE ELECTRONIC CIGARETTE STORE JUICE-E-VAPES, 1216 E. 23rd St., exhales vapor from an e-cigarette. Tran says he used the devices to kick his own smoking habit.

Are e-cigarettes a savior or


ELECTRONIC CIGARETTES on display at Juice-E-Vapes are pictured. AT LEFT, an electronic cigarette is loaded with â&#x20AC;&#x153;juice,â&#x20AC;? a flavored liquid that turns into vapor. Though there is anecdotal evidence from former cigarette smokers saying the devices have helped them kick the habit, many public health and medical professionals have yet to endorse e-cigarettes as safer alternatives to the traditional variety. Some researchers have found that e-cigarettes contain substances that are carcinogenic or toxic, said Babalola Faseru, assistant professor of preventive medicine and public health at Kansas University Medical Center.

tephen Sealey believes electronic cigarettes saved his life. He had trouble quitting the real kind, even after breathing problems caused him to once pass out behind the wheel of a car and, later, be diagnosed with emphysema. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 37. In March of last year, he turned to e-cigarettes, battery-powered devices that dispense nicotine through a vaporized liquid, to try to kick his over-two-decade-long smoking habit. It worked, he said, and in the process heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been able to save money and cut down on his nicotine intake. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I went from being told I had six months left to live and on oxygen support to 80 percent lung function and no expiration date,â&#x20AC;? said Sealey, who lived in Lawrence before moving recently to southeast Kansas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My doctors are ecstatic that I switched and happy that I stayed switched. Every day now is a victory.â&#x20AC;? Despite the prevalence of stories like Sealeyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, many public health and medi-


cal professionals have yet to endorse e-cigarettes as safer alternative to the traditional variety. Neither has the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, which has announced its intention to regulate e-cigarettes but has yet to write any rules. With little government oversight, ecigarette makers are free to manufacture their products how and with whatever chemicals they choose. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not regulated right now, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s essentially the Wild Wild West,â&#x20AC;? said Charlie Bryan, community health planner for the Lawrence-Douglas County Health Department, adding: â&#x20AC;&#x153;These tobacco producers are creating products that contain chemicals that are not well-understood, with flavors that appeal to children.â&#x20AC;? Public health officials often cite the Centers for Disease Control and Preventionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recent findings that e-cigarette use among middle and high school students Please see SMOKE, page 6A

doubled between 2011 and 2012. And they say e-cigarette makers are targeting children by making nicotine vapor in a wide variety of flavors, including bubble gum, Fruit Loops and Good & Plenty. Last year, the Kansas Legislature stepped in and banned the purchase and possession of e-cigarettes by minors. And while e-cigarettes aren’t subject to the state’s indoor smoking ban, organizations across the state have been writing the devices into their smoke-free policies, including, locally, Lawrence Memorial Hospital and the Lawrence, Baldwin City and Eudora school districts. Another concern for health advocates is the fact that Big Tobacco is increasingly backing e-cigarettes. In Kansas, tobacco company lobbyists have been encouraging state lawmakers to champion e-cigarettes as a less-harmful alternative, like allowing state employees who use the devices to pay a smaller health insurance premium than traditional smokers, according to state Rep. John Wilson, D-Lawrence.


cal community, though, the science just isn’t there. “There is no safe cigarette and there will never be a safe cigarette. It’s like saying, ‘What’s better — a lot of arsenic or a little bit of arsenic?’” said Charles Yockey, a pulmonary specialist at Lawrence Memorial Hospital. “I’ve been studying the human body for a lifetime, and if you go back to the original design, your lungs were never meant to be an incinerator.” Some researchers have found that e-cigarettes contain substances that are carcinogenic or toxic, said Babalola Faseru, assistant professor of preventive medicine and public health at Kansas University Medical Center. And without regulation, advertised nicotine levels aren’t being verified, he added. “Few studies have examined whether e-cigarettes are safe or more effective than existing smoking cessations aids” like nicotine gum and patches, said Faseru, who predicts it will be years before the public health community takes a definitive stance on the devices. But others say that anything that can get people to stop smoking is good. Jack Tran is the owner of the newly opened JuiceE-Vapes, 1216 E. 23rd St., and a former tobacco user who says he was able to overcome his own ad-

L AWRENCE J OURNAL -W ORLD diction with the help of e-cigarettes. At his store, Tran, 21, makes the liquid himself, listing the ingredients right on the product: propylene glycol, vegetable glycerin, natural and artificial flavoring, water and/or alcohol, nicotine. That’s compared, he says, with the “thousands of chemicals in cigarettes.” Not only that, he says, but with e-cigarettes users are able to satisfy their oral fixation while controlling the amount of nicotine they’re consuming. And, he added, their clothes and breath no longer stink. “You just feel a lot better,” he said. Tran started smoking when he was 16 but got spooked when his dad, a longtime smoker, died from lung cancer at the age of 56. On a recent day at his business, Tran took a drag off his e-cigarette, blew into a paper towel and showed a visitor how its color didn’t change, which wouldn’t have been the case with a normal cigarette. “I really don’t even have to have nicotine anymore. It’s more of a hobby at this point,” said Tran, as he exhaled what looked like a cloud of smoke but quickly disappeared and smelled of fruit. “I can quit anytime I want.”

Deadline extended 1 day for insurance By Carla K. Johnson Associated Press

CHICAGO â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Anticipating heavy traffic on the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health care website, the Obama administration extended Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deadline for signing up for insurance by a day, giving Americans in 36 states more time to select a plan. It was the latest in a series of pushed-back deadlines and delays that have marked the rollout of the health care law. But federal officials urged buyers not to procrastinate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You should not wait until tomorrow. If you are aiming to get coverage Jan. 1, you should try to sign up today,â&#x20AC;? said Julie Bataille, a spokeswoman for the federal agency in charge of the overhaul.

Football embarrassment Is there any hope for Kansas University to rise above its ranking as the worst team in all of the six power conferences?


uring the past several weeks, college football coaches have been scouring the country looking for talented high school or junior college players. The recruiting game can be, and is, vicious because coaches know the excellence of their recruiting efforts will determine, to a large degree, the level of success the coaches are likely to enjoy. Successful coaches earn more money, attract national attention and usually enjoy longer contracts. Losing coaches are at the low end of the pay scale with less job security and less ability to generate alumni and fan interest. Such interest translates into greater ticket sales and revenue, increased school spirit and the likelihood that alumni and friends will be more generous in their private support of the school. Unfortunately, Kansas University, despite an occasional winning and bowleligible team, has not enjoyed sustained success on the football field. Is this due to poor coaches, poor players, poor facilities, lack of interest by senior school officials — or a combination of all those factors? A recent issue of Forbes magazine carried a story titled, “The Best and Worst College Football Teams for the Money.” The survey was limited to the six automatic-qualifying conferences — Atlantic Coast Conference, American Athletic Conference, Big 10, Big 12, Pac 12 and Southeastern Conference — the so-called power conferences. Guess which team was judged to be the worst in all six conferences. The Kansas Jayhawks! The magazine said, “Kansas maintains its stranglehold on the title of worst college football team for the money. The Jayhawks have spent over $8 million per victory, the result of playing in a major conference but winning just six games over the last three seasons.” Colorado and California join KU as the three worst teams for the money. The best teams? For the first time in three years, Kansas State is not on top because the Wildcats, only a few miles west of Lawrence, with a smaller budget and smaller enrollment, dropped to the number TWO spot in the national survey. How embarrassing for Jayhawk fans to have the worst team in the national survey while Kansas State is ranked second “best” after being on top of the ranking for two years. What can KU fans expect next year? Does the record of KU football teams indicate school officials, athletic directors and fans are comfortable with this embarrassing situation? Otherwise, wouldn’t it be natural to expect students, fans and alumni to demand better performances from the coach and his players? Consider the possibilities if the KU football team enjoyed the enthusiasm, support and national attention that the KU basketball program receives. Again, what’s the trouble: poor coaches, poor players, poor athletic directors and/or poor expectations for school administrators? What does it say about the KU athletic program to be listed as the worst football program among all of the automatic-qualifying conferences?

Assad reign of terror must be stopped GAZIANTEP, TURKEY — The three young Syrian women had managed to escape from the rebel-held section of Aleppo for a few days’ rest across the border in Turkey. Asma, 26, a university graduate in English literature, has been volunteering for the past two years as a nurse in a field hospital, treating civilian victims of the war, which has divided Aleppo into conflict zones held by the rebels and the regime. Salam, 30, and Islam, 28, sisters who were teachers before the war, are volunteers in an orphanage that shelters 650 children who lost parents in the fighting. “These children are only a fraction of the number of war orphans,” Salam told me. It was hard to believe that these fresh-faced, smiling women, their faces framed by head scarves, had lived for years under bombardments. But just after they arrived in Gaziantep, the Assad regime began dropping “barrel bombs” filled with hundreds of pounds of explosives and shrapnel on apartment buildings in their neighborhood, killing hundreds of civilians and wounding hundreds more. The three were planning to rush back into the mayhem. “There are not enough doctors or nurses or supplies,” Asma explained as we sat over a simple lunch of bread, cheese, and cucumbers in the apartment of friends who had escaped from Aleppo. “They are operating in the corridors, cutting off limbs without anesthetic.” A school had been hit, and many of the new victims were children. No surprise. Bashar alAssad’s war against his own people is a deliberate war

Trudy Rubin

This war is about a dictator who will go to any lengths to retain power, and who has triggered a humanitarian catastrophe that destabilizes the whole region.” against civilians and children. The greatest humanitarian catastrophe of the 21st century thus far is unfolding in Syria. The war crimes committed by Assad rival anything seen in Darfur or Bosnia. Yet the international community has failed to take steps that could slow or halt these war crimes. And the Obama administration has unwittingly helped Assad continue slaughtering civilians. This has to stop. According to the Oxford Research Group, at least 11,000 of the more than 113,000 known dead were younger than 18; of those child victims, more than 70 percent were killed by bombs or artillery shells. There were also 764 cases of summary execution of children and 389 of sniper fire with clear evidence that children were targeted. (Indeed, the entire Syrian revolt was sparked in late 2011 by the arrest and torture of a group

of children for writing antiAssad graffiti on a wall.) Indiscriminate bombing and shelling have been Assad’s weapons of choice for depopulating whole urban neighborhoods and towns under rebel control. The result is that nearly one-third of Syria’s 23 million people are either refugees in neighboring countries or internally displaced, living in schools, in mosques, or on the ground. As winter sets in, Assad is preventing food and medicine from reaching 250,000 starving civilians in besieged areas surrounded by regime forces. As I heard from doctors in Gaziantep, the dictator is abetting a growing polio epidemic, which is on the verge of exploding in the rebel-held north; regime policy ensures that the most endangered children lack access to the vaccine. U.N. investigators have alleged that the Syrian government has carried out “a campaign of terror” against civilians that includes widespread abductions and disappearances. The top U.N. human rights official, Navi Pillay, says evidence links Assad to crimes against humanity, including horrendous torture and rapes in regime prisons. Yet Assad is sitting pretty in the run-up to peace talks with the opposition, to be held in Switzerland on Jan. 22. His Russian backers blocked a U.N. Security Council statement last week that would have condemned the barrel-bomb attacks. Their veto makes it impossible to refer Assad to the International Criminal Court for crimes against humanity. Obama’s decision to forgo a strike on the regime’s mili-

tary sites in favor of a deal to destroy its chemical weapons gave the dictator a green light to slaughter civilians by other methods. As Assad ups the killing before peace talks, Obama’s only card is to ask Moscow to rein him in. If Russia (and Iran) will not force Assad to cease his slaughter of civilians and declare a humanitarian truce before the beginning of peace talks, the talks are pointless. Unless the administration stands by this precondition, it will be complicit in Assad’s crimes. Americans may be indifferent to the slaughter of Syrian civilians because they view the war as too confusing to grasp. But if they had the chance to talk to Asma, Salam, Islam, and all the brave Syrian civilian activists I met in Gaziantep, they would understand the essence of this fight. These young people have exposed themselves to mortal danger to save civilian lives. This war is about a dictator who will go to any lengths to retain power, and who has triggered a humanitarian catastrophe that destabilizes the whole region. Assad’s reign of terror has fueled a rise of radical Islam that will threaten the entire Middle East — and the West. Peace talks in Geneva are unlikely to end the war, but at least they might stop Assad’s assault on civilians. If Obama cannot persuade the Russians to force Assad to permit the delivery of food to the starving and vaccine to the children, the U.S. delegation should stay home. — Trudy Rubin is a columnist and editorial board member for the Philadelphia Inquirer.

OLD HOME TOWN From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Dec. 24, 1913: YEARS “Christmas at the AGO county jail will be IN 1913 observed with a special big dinner for the inmates. Turkey and cranberry sauce will be on the menu card along with oyster dressing, mince pie and pudding.” “There is the usual amount of late shopping this season. In spite of the bad weather many Christmas buyers were down town last night and again this evening. Business all this week has been much better than the week before according to most of the merchants. Practically all stores will be open tonight to accommodate the eleventh hour shoppers.”

Political policy To the editor: I agree with Sunday’s editorial about current Kansas University policy on social media, which the author titles “Curbing speech.” I would, however, like to note that the KU Policy on the use of social media seems to be a compromise between free speech and the demands made on the university by right-wing Kansas politicians, who can influence decisions on its budget. It would be best to separate politics from funding KU and base the latter on its achievements. Unfortunately, however, we haven’t reached that stage as yet. Anna M. Cienciala, Lawrence

Other guys? To the editor: On Dec. 19, the Journal-World published a story entitled “The Other Guys,” which distinguished two “star” players on the Lawrence High School varsity boys’ basketball team from the “other” boys on the team. This unfortunate nickname was repeated by one of the “stars” in a post-game interview. As someone who knows two of those “other guys,” I was highly offended by that designation. It immediately reduces the team to just two players who are simply supported by the other kids in uniform. Don’t you know that basketball is a TEAM sport? Don’t you know that learning to work as a team is a character-

building experience for boys of this age? How dare you interfere with their development as caring, sharing young men with strong self-esteem and the ability to celebrate the good in others. Maybe sportswriters regularly slap quippy titles on the athletes they cover. Maybe it’s acceptable for NBA players — men who have the stats, the egos and the salaries to justify those nicknames. But let’s not forget that the LHS Lions are boys who are becoming men. Don’t underestimate the long-term damage you can do by labeling these young people just for a clever headline. Let’s do a better job of building up ALL of these boys instead of just two whose scoring stats are made possible by the hard work and the awesome talent of the socalled “other guys.” Susan E. King, Lawrence

Downtown growth To the editor: Cultural heritage and authenticity are some of the attributes of a historic district. The review standards for impacts upon a Historic District, Historic Landmarks, and Environs Review are well documented. We can see through our observation of downtown Lawrence that its growth has been one of gradual progress. The historical fabric of the mercantile street is largely intact from the former car dealership that now houses Waxman Candles, to the distant opposite corner from the historic Watkins museum, and former bank near the Douglas County Courthouse.

Along the way an expansion on the vacant lot next to the Eldridge has not yet occurred although recently approved. Before the next City Commission election a new tower has been approved opposite the Treanor/Compton hotel at Ninth and New Hampshire, and now a seven-story project is being proposed opposite the historic courthouse and Watkins Museum. How can it be that one of the commissioners whose restaurant businesses have been largely successful due to their location in a historic district be so cavalier about a complete change in the character of Downtown Lawrence? Historically, the mercantile street called Massachusetts was limited to fourstory buildings with the only exceptions being at Ninth and Massachusetts. Several of our current City Commission members were elected in part by funding from a political action committee. Do they truly represent the best interests of the community or rather the interests of “special donors” whether downtown, or in building no vote/no bid recreation centers? Sven Erik Alstrom, Lawrence

Two years ago, rightt around this time, I had my first telephone e conversation with Keon on Stowers. I learned then n what a lot of current Kansas University football recruits cruits are discovering today. Stowers is someone you want to be around. And that fact is having ng a heck of an impact on KUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recruiting, as Stowers has stepped up and taken the lead as one of the top hosting options for visiting g prospects considering Kansas. sas. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to pinpoint exactly what it is aboutt Stowers that is so inviting ting because thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so much ch there. He has as big a smile as anyone Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever met, et, is intelligent beyond the he realm of football and does an amazing job of mixing ing the no-nonsense attitude de expected from a military man with the type of demeanor anor you would expect from a young man in college having the time of his life. As KU coach Charlie Weis continues to Stowers add commitments to the Class of 2014 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the Jayhawks have 13 spots spoken for and d as many as 13 more to hand nd out â&#x20AC;&#x201D; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clear that Stowers rs has become one of his biggest gest assets in the process. A year ago, the Jayhawks awks had similar help from a signee named Marquell Combs. Combs, who signed igned with the Jayhawks last December and has since ce transferred, was a master ter of the sell on Twitter and d did a fantastic job of hyping ng up the opportunity that existed d for junior-college players at Kansas. In the end, though, Combsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; words were merely that â&#x20AC;&#x201D; words â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s obvious that Stowers offers more. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a guy who, just two years ago, was in the same position many of these junior-college prospects find themselves in today â&#x20AC;&#x201D; loaded with offers, overwhelmed with questions and unsure which was the right path to take. Today, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a returning team captain, a guy who can look these young guys in the eyes and tell them, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;If you follow my lead, you too can put yourself in this position.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; The best part about Stowersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ability to do that is he never glosses over the hard part, all of the work and sacrifice, pain and frustration that could come before they get there. I once asked Stowers what being named a team captain meant to him, and his answer included more than the clichĂŠ of it being an honor to be thought of so highly by teammates. That part was there, too, but his full answer demonstrated that the title was about much more than trotting out to mid-field for the opening coin toss or leading by example in the weight room. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my duty as a captain and the leader I am to do whatever possible to help this team,â&#x20AC;? he began. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m gonna give the university all I have to succeed, even after Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m long gone.â&#x20AC;?

Self: Zone defenses not without merits By Gary Bedore

Kansas University coach Bill Self says the Jayhawks should benefit from having seen some zone defenses

Bill Self, who preaches in-your-face, man-to-man defense, isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t against implementing the triangle-andtwo, box-and-one or even a 3-2 zone if it helps win basketball games. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sometimes you do (want to show teams a different look),â&#x20AC;? said Self, Kansas Universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 11th-year coach, who most of the time prefers a stingy man alignment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Coach Krzyzewski (Mike,

Duke) has won a lot of games, and he will never do it (play zone). Bob Knight won a lot of games, and he never did it. Eddie Sutton won a lot of games, and he never did it. Mr. (Hank) Iba won a lot of games, and he never did it. That doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right or wrong. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jim Boeheim (Syracuse) has won a ton of games and never plays man. One time he played man was against us. We totally destroyed their zone. We were up 14 in Kansas City ... he goes man-

to-man the last 14 minutes and comes back and beats us (89-81, Nov. 25, 2008). After the game he said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even practice that.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; That made me feel better,â&#x20AC;? Self added sarcastically. Self knows why some teams â&#x20AC;&#x201D; including Georgetown on Saturday in KUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 86-64 victory â&#x20AC;&#x201D; have been going to the zone against his squad early in the 2013-14 season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s smart coaching,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Teams are trying to make us think because

we are so young. Florida ... their strategy was, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Switch defenses because theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have a hard time in a hostile environment being able to pick things up.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d never been in that situation before. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Colorado did the same thing. New Mexico did the same thing (as did Georgetown on Saturday). Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re getting good experiences going against some teams switching things up and making us think out there as Please see ZONE, page 3B

Chiefs might rest starters KANSAS CITY, MO. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The dilemma that faces Chiefs coach Andy Reid this week is not an unfamiliar one. In fact, several times during his 14-year tenure in Philadelphia he faced a similar situation. Play his starters or sit them? Rest or let them roll? Kansas City is assured of the No. 5 seed in the AFC playoffs, which means it will head on the road for a wildcard game in two weeks. That also means the Chiefs are playing a game Sunday at San Diego that is virtually meaningless for them, at

least in terms of seeding and matchups. If history is any indication, get ready to see Alex Smith and Jamaal Charles spend a whole lot of time on the sideline. Same with the Chiefsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; other key players. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you look at the history of it, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about a 50-50 shot over the last three or four years of people who have done it,â&#x20AC;? Reid said Monday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re most comfortable with as a coach. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The obvious benefit is you rest your guys,â&#x20AC;? Reid explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You kind of get back a little fresher than

what they were at the end of the season. You take a risk of the timing part of it. So those are the things that you have to evaluate.â&#x20AC;? While the game doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter much for Kansas City, it means a lot for the Chargers. San Diego can still slip into the playoffs with a victory and losses by the Dolphins and Ravens. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Chargers wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t play like itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an exhibition game,â&#x20AC;? Chiefs offensive guard Geoff Schwartz said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I promise you weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be ready to play.â&#x20AC;? With whoever might be on the field in San Diego.

49ers make playoffs SAN FRANCISCO (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; On a night they cheered â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Catchâ&#x20AC;? and all the San Francisco greats of old, the current 49ers looked ready to move that success right into the future at a flashy new stadium. In one emphatic finish, NaVorro Bowman, Colin Kaepernick and the Niners sealed their postseason berth in a ceremonious regular-season farewell for Candlestick Park. Bowman returned an interception 89 yards for a touchdown with 1:10 remaining, and the 49ers clinched a playoff spot with a wild 34-24 victory against the Atlanta Falcons on Monday night in the likely final game at The Stick. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been the best thing Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever seen happen in a football game,â&#x20AC;? coach Jim Harbaugh said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been close to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Catch.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Tramaine Brock broke up a pass intended for Harry Douglas and Bowman got his hands on the ball and took off. He was joined in the end zone by his teammates for a jubilant dog pile. Matt Ryan threw a 39-yard touchdown pass to Roddy White with 8:42 remaining and a 2-yard score to Tony Gonzalez with 2:09 left as the Falcons (4-11) made things interesting until the end. Atlantaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jason Snelling recovered the ensuing onside kick as the Falcons got the ball back and were driving for a potential go-ahead score when San Francisco (11-4) capitalized with one of its biggest takeaways yet. Kaepernick ran for a 4-yard touchdown and threw a 10-yard TD pass to Anquan Boldin, and Frank Gore scored on a 1-yard touchdown run as the 49ers used a big second half to clinch a third straight playoff season and fifth consecutive victory.

Auburnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Malzahn voted AP coach of year AUBURN, ALA. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Gus Malzahn inherited a demoralized Auburn team that had just gone through the programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worst season in decades with a stagnant offense and pliant defense. As is his way, the coach known for fast play on offense went to work in a hurry. He led the second-ranked Tigersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; transformation into Southeastern Conference champions and has them in the national championship game Jan. 6 against No. 1 Florida State. Malzahnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quick work made him the Associated Press national coach of the year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very humbling,â&#x20AC;? he said Monday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Any time you get awards like this, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a team thing, as far as our staff and our players. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been fun to be a part of this year.â&#x20AC;? Malzahn received 33 votes from AP Top 25 college football poll voters to beat out Dukeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s David Cutcliffe. Cutcliffe received 17 votes after leading Duke (10-3) to its first 10-win season. Florida Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jimbo Malzahn Fisher and Michigan Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mark Dantonio each received three votes. Malzahn is the second Auburn coach to win the award since it began in 1998, joining Tommy Tuberville (2004), and the second coach to win it in his first season with a new team. Marylandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ralph Friedgen was AP coach of the year in 2001, his first season with the Terrapins. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the fifth time an SEC coach has won AP coach of the year. Auburn icon Bo Jackson likened Malzahnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s task to starting with an empty lot upon his hiring in December 2012. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got to rebuild that house,â&#x20AC;? said Jackson, the 1985 Heisman Trophy winner. The foundation was set with confidence and attitude, reinforced with a message that it was â&#x20AC;&#x153;a new dayâ&#x20AC;? for Auburn (12-1) after a 3-9 season in 2012 that was the Tigersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; worst since 1952. Even more jarring, they had failed to win an SEC game. It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take the team long to adopt a goal of forging the greatest turnaround in college football. The result was one of the biggest ever. Only Hawaiiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 8.5-game turnaround from 1999-2000 matches Auburnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one-year improvement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a real tribute to our players that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve bonded together,â&#x20AC;? Malzahn said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done everything our coaches have asked, and I think the No. 1 thing is we developed good relationships with our players. We trust our players, the players trust our coaches and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got each othersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; backs.â&#x20AC;?

Kentucky, Louisville, Maryland, Baylor and North Carolina round out the first 10. Oklahoma State moved up to 11th. The Cowgirls are followed by Colorado, South Carolina, Iowa State and Penn State.


CSU assistant suspended FORT COLLINS, COLO. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Colorado State defensive line coach Greg Lupfer has been suspended without pay for two weeks for using a gay slur when yelling at Washington State quarterback Connor Halliday in the New Mexico Bowl last weekend. Athletic director Jack Graham also ordered Lupfer to undergo anger-management and diversity training at his own expense. Lupfer issued a statement saying he was grateful to keep his job on Jim McElwainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s staff and said â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am deeply sorry for my behavior, which does not represent who I am or my values.â&#x20AC;? Lupfer got into a verbal altercation with the Cougarsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; QB after his first TD throw. His slur was caught on ESPN cameras and marred the Ramsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; comeback from a 22-point deficit for a last-second 48-45 win to kick off the bowl season.

AKRON, OHIO â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Alan Arrington, an assistant football coach at the University of Akron, was killed Monday in a car accident in his native Mississippi. He was 44. Arrington, nicknamed Tank, was an assistant head coach on Terry Bowdenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s staff and also worked with the offensive line. He coached at North Alabama and Mississippi earlier in his career. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have lost someone who was truly special and had dedicated his life to guiding young men,â&#x20AC;? Bowden said in a release. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tank was a very good friend and a great person. My thoughts are with his family and those who had the chance to know him and play for him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In all my years of coaching I have never known someone who loved and cared for his players more than Tank. I have lost a best friend and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m heartbroken.â&#x20AC;?

Cooper carries ECU past Ohio, 37-20 ST. PETERSBURG, FLA. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Vinatavious Cooper rushed for a career-best 198 yards, setting a Beef â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Bradyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bowl record and leading East Carolina to a 37-20 victory over Ohio on Monday. The Pirates (10-3) grabbed the lead for good on the first of Cooperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two touchdowns runs in the fourth quarter, a 31-yard burst with just under 10 minutes remaining. East Carolinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Shane Carden threw for 273 yards and one TD and also scored on a pass reception. Cam Worthy caught an early five-yard scoring pass from Carden, and then took a lateral from the junior quarterback and

threw 14 yards back to Carden for a fourth-quarter TD that made it 31-20. Cooper put it well out of reach, finding an opening off left tackle and racing 22 yards for his second TD. Tyler Tettleton and Derrius Vick threw scoring passes for Ohio (7-6), which overcame an early two-touchdown deficit to lead 20-17 before Cooper put East Carolina back in front before an announced crowd of 20,053 at Tropicana Field. Breon Allen also scored on a two-yard run for East Carolina, which won six of its final seven games to finish with the secondmost victories in school history. Carden set the school record for single-season yards passing

with a 13-yard throw to Isaiah Jones on the drive ended with Allenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s TD, making it 14-0. He completed 29 of 45 passes while boosting his season total to 4,139 yards, breaking Dominique Davisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; record total for the Pirates. Cooper ran for 90 yards in the opening quarter alone, becoming the third running back in East Carolina history to rush for 1,000 in consecutive seasons. Justin Hardy, meanwhile, had eight receptions for 59 yards, setting a school record for yards receiving in a season. He finished with nine catches, giving him 114 receptions for 1,284 yards. Ohio battled back after a

slow start. Tettleton and Vick each threw a touchdown pass in a five-minute span to make it 14-all early in the second quarter. Tettleton got the Bobcats going with a 26-yard completion to Dazâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Patterson on a flea flicker, and then found Patterson for a 17-yard TD on the following play. Vick and Donte Foster combined for an 80-yard score on Ohioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next offensive play for the longest scoring pass in Beef â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Bradyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bowl history. Foster finished with six catches for 160 yards, earning most valuable player honors for Ohio. Tettleton was 21-of-40 for 228 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions.

saw sophomore forward Perry Ellis limited to just 12 minutes in the victory over Georgetown after taking a blow to the head on a hard foul. In addition to the 5-of-5 shooting effort, Black added six rebounds and some toughness against a physical and experienced Georgetown squad that scrapped from the opening tip to the final horn. With Ellis expected to be back for KUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next game â&#x20AC;&#x201D; 7 p.m. Monday vs. Toledo â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Self could not help but smile about the potential of KUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s front court the rest of the way. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He may not always have 17 points,â&#x20AC;? Self said of Black. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do anything spectacular. He just played to his strengths. So if we can keep getting production out of him and Joel (Embiid, 17 points,

Though he understands the effectiveness of the zone, Self will never use it a lot. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think if you ask 100 coaches, 80 would say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;If we could really guard, I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t play anything else (but man),â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Self said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what we have to get back. Last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team was 36.1 (percent fieldgoal defense). Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been in the top 10 in field-goalpercentage defense nine times in 10 years, and one year we were awful: We were 12th in the country. It is our staple, our identity.â&#x20AC;? O

Blackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Big 12 honor was the fourth for the Jayhawks this season. Ellis and freshman Andrew Wiggins earned playerand newcomer-of-theweek honors, respectively, on Nov. 18, and Embiid earned newcomer-of-theweek honors on Dec. 2.

Wiggins and West A photograph surfaced Monday on Twitter of KU freshman Andrew Wiggins posing with hip-hop star Kanye West. In the photo, Wiggins is wearing a Houston Rockets hat, while West is sporting a smooth coat and a big smile. The photo likely was taken in Wigginsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; hometown of Toronto, where the KU forward is spending the holidays and Westâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yeezusâ&#x20AC;? tour

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll try to think back. Last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the most talented, but they were pretty tough. Our defense was tremendous last year,â&#x20AC;? Self said of a 31-6 Big 12 champion/NCAA Sweet 16 team that allowed 61.9 points off 36.1 percent shooting. KU outrebounded foes an average of 39.2 to 32.9. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had other ones. I thought maybe the year after we won the national championship ... that was a tough team,â&#x20AC;? he added of the 2008-09 Jayhawks who went 27-8, won the league and also lost in the Sweet 16. That squad allowed 65.4 ppg off 38.3 percent marksmanship. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The team that went to the national championship and got beat (by Kentucky) was a tough team,â&#x20AC;?

Bilas a big fan College basketball analyst Jay Bilas, who was in town Saturday to call KUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 22-point victory over Georgetown, took to Twitter following the game to praise the play he saw from freshman center Embiid, who finished with 17 points, eight rebounds, a block and two steals in 21 minutes. Bilasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Tweet: â&#x20AC;&#x153;If stock is being sold in Joel Embiidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s future, I want to buy some. That kid is ridonkulously talented. Dare I say, upside?!â&#x20AC;? The raw big man who has started during the past three games enters the holiday break as KUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s third-leading scorer, at 10.5 points per game, and leading rebounder, at 6.6 per contest. He also ranks first in blocks (25) and steals (13) while shooting 68.3 percent from the field and 64.7 percent from the free-throw line.

level is as good or superior to a lot of those teams.â&#x20AC;? O

Spots for shots: Self has noticed a difference between the veteran squad of 2012-13 and this much younger edition in 2013-14. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last year, we knew where our shots were coming from. We still donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to score, where the shots are going to come from,â&#x20AC;? Self said in reflecting on KUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s play heading into Christmas break. A year ago, he had Ben McLemore, Elijah Johnson and Travis Releford doing damage from the wing and Jeff Withey taking care of the inside en route to a 31-6 record. This year, Andrew Wiggins is a prime candidate to lead the outside brigade with Perry Ellis and Joel Embiid becoming likely go-to guys on the inside. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to take a while. I said all along itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a process,â&#x20AC;? Self said.

Engaged woman kisses another man

Dear Heartbroken: While it may not be as serious as sleeping with another guy, that

kiss was still a betrayal. And if you enjoy going out to bars in order to dance with other guys and drink so much that you cannot control your behavior, it doesn’t sound as if you are ready to get married. Imagine how you would feel if your fiance behaved this way. You owe him a sincere apology and a promise to curtail your drinking. We hope he is willing to give you another chance. But if you cannot understand or admit that your be-

Networks to air Christmas classics The night before Christmas offers one last chance to catch some old classics before they’re stored away in the broadcast attic until next season. A cable Christmastime staple for nearly a decade, the goofy 2003 North Pole-meets-Manhattan fantasy “Elf” (11 p.m., Starz) has now been enshrined with its own 24-hour marathon. Starz will run “Elf” from midnight tonight and all through Christmas Day. Fearlessly silly and enchantingly likable, “Elf” was perfectly cast. Few roles better suit Will Ferrell’s man-child exuberance. Bob Newhart stands out in his few scenes as the papa elf, and James Caan rises to the occasion as the wayward elf’s gruff biological father. The FX Movie Channel will offer viewers three chances to catch the 1951 adaptation of “A Christmas Carol” (8 p.m., 10 p.m. and midnight.). This production, starring Alastair Sim as Scrooge, was a hit in England, where it was made (and released as “Scrooge”), but received mixed reviews in the United States and did poorly at the box office. Like the 1946 Frank Capra favorite, “It’s a Wonderful Life” (7 p.m., NBC), “Carol” achieved cult status through repeated TV airings. It wouldn’t be Christmas Eve without one last chance to hear Boris Karloff narrate “Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas” (7 p.m., ABC) in the beloved 1966 holiday special directed by animation legend Chuck Jones. (Not even the spirit of the holidays can force me to recommend the rather overstuffed 2000 adaptation of “Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas” (8 p.m., ABC), starring Jim Carrey and directed by Ron Howard.) With literally thousands of Christmas movies to choose from, why have these few become favorites, considered endlessly re-watchable? Because none of them sugarcoat the holiday. Scrooge, George Bailey and, to some extent, the Grinch, suffer a dark night of existential dread. Even Buddy the Elf’s journey of self-discovery involves learning that he’s not exactly who he thought he was.

Tonight’s other highlights

Tony’s dad (Robert Wagner) drops in for Christmas on “NCIS” (7 p.m., CBS).

A young woman lets the dogs out in the 2005 holiday fantasy “The 12 Dogs of Christmas” (7 p.m., CW).

The man in the suit becomes a “Person of Interest” (9 p.m., CBS). Copyright 2013 United Feature Syndicate, distributed by Universal Uclick.

Dear Annie: I’m a 26-year-old female and have been engaged to a wonderful man for the past year. We had plans to marry after he graduates in June with his master’s degree. The problem started when on several occasions my girlfriends and I went out to the bars and danced until the wee hours. During one of those nights, I had a few too many drinks and ended up kissing one of the guys I was dancing with. My fiance found out about it from a mutual friend, and now he wants to break off our engagement. He feels this was cheating and that I have betrayed his trust. Is this cheating, or is he being unreasonable? — Heartbroken
