Graduation requirements are unlikely to change ———

Kansas among 22 states not aligning diploma with new standards By Peter Hancock

Students in Lawrence and throughout Kansas are now being taught English and math according to the Common Core standards, which are supposed to ensure that they’re ready for college or the workplace by the time they graduate. This misalignment But in Kansas means that students and most other states that have may graduate unpreadopted the pared for college and Common Core, careers.” there is still no requirement for students to — A spokesman for Achieve, prove they’ve a nonprofit organization that met those stan- helped create the core standards dards in order to earn a diploma. And officials at the Kansas State Department of Education say that’s not likely to change anytime soon. “We’ve never had that conversation in Kansas,” said Brad Neuenswander, deputy education commissioner for learning services. “Some states (such as New York) require passing a state assessment by your senior year to graduate. We’ve never had that

Need to fly to Chicago or beyond? Lawrence residents soon will have an alternative to Kansas City International Airport: Topeka Regional Airport. Locals say the convenience of the smaller airport is enticing but — being roughly halfway between the two — choosing Topeka over Kansas City will come down to whether flight times fit with their travel plans. Beginning Jan. 7, United Express 50-passenger regional jets are scheduled to depart for Chicago O’Hare at 6 a.m. and 2:54 p.m. daily from Topeka Regional Airport, located at Forbes Field in southeast Topeka. Tickets cost the same as United flights from Kansas City, according to fares listed Friday on United’s website (leaving Jan. 11, you’d pay $200 round trip for a week or $261 for the weekend). “That’s a good thing for both Lawrence and Topeka, and the surrounding communities,”

KU business school designs look to future By Ben Unglesbee

The Kansas University School of Business has raised more than $55 million for a new building to replace Summerfield Hall and is closer than ever to realizing a major goal of Dean Neeli Bendapudi’s, one she brought with her when she started at KU. But first thing’s first: building new tennis courts. Before breaking ground and laying the foundation, the university be-

the information when we draw that first line,� Vitale said. James Guthrie, a distinguished professor of business at KU and co-chair of the planning committee for the new building, said much of the challenge so far has been trying to look into the future of education, both broadly and at the business school. Guthrie said the design team “told us when they came in that they’re going to make us uncomfortable.� And that they did. The team has shown faculty and staff designs that do away entirely with the traditional setup for university teaching. Today most classrooms are meant to

accommodate a lecturer facing a class of students who then leave to (presumably) do readings and homework. But designers for the business school have been pushing what they call “flipped classrooms,� Guthrie said. The flipped classroom does away with the room full of desks facing a single direction. Instead the furniture and function of the room are flexible. The assumption behind these rooms is that students will watch more lectures in video form before coming to class, and use class time to work in teams on projects. Vitale said the new building will also feature a “main street� concept that splits the building into two discreet spaces, one student-focused and the other mostly faculty offices and collaborative spaces.

L AWRENCE J OURNAL -W ORLD Between these two areas will be an atrium “where people can happen on each other and have conversations,� Vitale said. The rest of the building is “always forcing people back to that space� to “make sure people aren’t hiding in rooms,� he said. On top of these features, the school hopes to create an outdoor area where students can congregate. Think of a Wescoe Beach for the south part of campus, but better looking. “Right now students, our students, when they’re done with classes, they vacate this building� because there is no comfortable place to lounge, Guthrie said. “We want the business school to be a destination point for students.� — Reporter Ben Unglesbee can be reached at 832-7173.

Kansas has always based their grad requirements on earning a level of credit, which means you have to have successfully completed so many credits of math, language arts, science, history and government.� But some groups are now urging states to align their graduation requirements with those same “college- and careerready� academic standards. One of those groups is Achieve, the nonprofit organization that helped write those standards in the first place. Last month, Achieve published a report show-

ing only 11 of the 45 states that have adopted the Common Core have fully aligned their graduation requirements to go along with them, and 13 others have partially aligned their requirements. Kansas is among the 22 states that “lack corresponding graduation requirements that match the expectations of new standards. “This misalignment means that students may graduate unprepared for college and careers since they will not have taken courses that deliver the (collegeand careerready) standards or demonstrated their mastery of the (standards) through competency-based methods,� the organization said.

said John Novotny of Travellers Inc., 831 Massachusetts St. “Any time there are more choices, that’s a plus for the consumer.� Topeka is pitching its new offering, the airport’s first commercial service in years, as an easy-in, easy-out alternative to busy Kansas City International. Business travelers, vacationers and Kansas University professors and students are among Lawrence residents that Topeka wants to attract, said Eric Johnson, Metropolitan Topeka Airport Authority president and director of airports. “It’s easier to get here than Kansas City International, our fares are very comparable to what you’ll find in Kansas City, and our parking is $5 for as long as you’re here,� Johnson said. Compared with airports in most large cities, Kansas City’s is beloved by travelers for its accessibility. Compared with a smalltown airport, though, lines

quires students to earn at least 21 high school credits in order to graduate. Those must include at least four credits in English language arts, and three credits each in math, science and social studies, and one unit of physical education. Most individual districts, including Lawrence, have additional requirements beyond the state’s minimum standards. Lawrence, for example, requires an additional half credit of social studies and 1.5 credits of elective courses, for a minimum total of 23 credits. One thing that has been talked about is changing the way students can earn those credits by allowing different courses or experiences to count to-

are longer and parking more expensive — $22 a day for garage parking or $7 a day for economy parking, which is located in satellite lots accessible only by shuttle bus. From downtown Lawrence, online maps list drive times at about 35 minutes to Topeka Regional or just under 50 minutes to Kansas City International. In Topeka, parking is just across a couple lanes of traffic from the newly remodeled terminal. And with one 50-passenger plane leaving at a time, travelers should never face long lines, Johnson said. As vice president of sales for food service at Berry Plastics, Lawrence resident John Landgrebe travels about three times a month to various parts of the country. Landgrebe, who schedules flight times around business meetings, said Kansas City would be hard to top. Even though parking is more expensive, he finds the drive easy and likes having many flights and airlines to choose from. “If the cost of flying made sense and the route

times made sense, I’d consider using Topeka vs. KCI — timing of flights being the most important factor,� Landgrebe said. Flying from Topeka could be a good fit for Lawrence residents spending a weekend in the Windy City or traveling internationally, said Dave Bonnel, agency manager at Travel Leaders, 4104 W. Sixth St. An early flight to Chicago on Saturday and a late flight home on Sunday would give weekenders two full days, Bonnel said. He said Topeka’s flight times also aligned well with connecting overnight flights to and from Europe. Lack of options if a flight were canceled could be a downside, Bonnel said, but the small-airport convenience factor is an upside. “It should be easy in and easy out,� he said. “It should be very quick access.� For more information on Topeka Regional Airport or to book flights, go online to mtaa-topeka. org.

ward those requirements, Neuenswander said “In career and tech ed, for example, a student may be exposed to a lot of the geometry in a particular class that you would otherwise get in a regular geometry class,� he said. “So it may be a matter of how can kids earn those credits differently than the traditional route.� Some districts are now asking for waivers so they can determine for themselves what constitutes a credit. Those requests are being filed under a new state law that allows up to 10 percent of the state’s districts, or 29 in all, to be considered “innovative districts� and exempt themselves from most state laws and regulations governing K-12 education.

The state education agency, however, has little say in deciding which districts will qualify for those exemptions, and officials say it’s unclear whether graduation requirements are among those regulations that can be waived.

Library emphasizing programs over quiet

Libertarian Lawrence native to run for governor

By Elliot Hughes

Libraries were once known for being closedoff, stuffy, “shush!� kinds of places. But now, it’s all about providing spaces, putting on programs, inviting people over and talking. “As the library evolves, that’s what people are wanting increasingly — more engagement, more community conversations and programs,� said Kathleen Morgan, the executive director of the Lawrence Public Library Foundation who will soon take on a more active role in the library’s marketing and programming. As patrons’ needs change, Lawrence’s library is strengthening its emphasis on programming and outreach. The clearest example of this lies within the blueprints of the library’s renovations, under construction and aiming to open in summer 2014. An additional 20,000 square feet will mean seven more meeting rooms, new programming spaces specifically for children and teens, a creative center with a recording studio included and a doubling of the seats in the auditorium, according to Jeni Daley, library spokeswoman. More than that, though, the library has found a way to expand programming. Morgan said the library has not spent much more of its own money on its various literary events, but thanks to outside support and grants, it’s still been able to pour Please see LIBRARY, page 4A

Tresa McAlhaney isn’t your typical politician. In fact, she said, she’s not a politician at all. All the more reason, she said, that she would be the perfect person to govern the state of Kansas. State government has gotten not only inefficient, said the stay-at-home mom from Bonner Springs, but out of touch with the people it’s supposed to serve. McAlhaney, 34, was never politically involved until recently, when she said she was forced to be. Her homeowners association was in a dispute with the state over the future of a nearby dam. She noticed how long it was taking state officials to respond. She had also gotten into disagreements with the state over the education of her home-schooled children. “The more I got into the government stuff, the more riled up I got,� she said. She got involved with the Libertarian Party after hearing U.S. Sen. Ron Paul, a Libertarian-leaning Republican from Texas, speak during last year’s presidential campaign. And after she noticed a lack of Libertarians stepping up to run for governor in 2014, she took it upon herself to become a candidate. “I think this is one of the safest, nicest places in the world,� she said, speaking of Kansas. But until it gets better governance, she said, it

L AWRENCE J OURNAL -W ORLD administrators have gotten creative. Through 2013, the library partnered with outside businesses and held their events in locations such as the Castle Tea Room, Pachamamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, the Cider Gallery and others. The satellite programs have also allowed for the inclusion of alcohol at adult events, something that canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be done within library walls. Polli Kenn, events and programs coordinator, said the library has fared so well at these functions that it could continue them even when the renovated library reopens. But no matter where the event is, guests can be sure it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t strictly be a be-quiet-or-be-shushed kind of place. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want it to be a place where, sure, you can come and study and find some quiet in certain parts of the library, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also OK to talk and hear music in the library and hear a story or come see an entertainer,â&#x20AC;?

Tax debate on hold for 2014

By John Milburn

Associated Press

TOPEKA â&#x20AC;&#x201D; After two years of making wholesale changes in the Kansas income tax code, Republican state officials will sit back in 2014 and see whether the economic growth they envisioned takes hold. With the help of the GOPcontrolled Legislature, Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback pushed through tax cuts for nearly 200,000 businesses and individual income taxpayers during the 2012 and 2013 sessions. His goal was to set the state on a path toward eliminating income taxes over time and attracting new residents and businesses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a weak (national) recovery. But Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very encouraged by the data that we have right now and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m encouraged that our revenues to the state have held so strong. Things are working,â&#x20AC;? Brownback said, noting it was too early to deem the cuts a success but pointing

to â&#x20AC;&#x153;nice gainsâ&#x20AC;? in the Kansas portion of the Kansas City metropolitan area, southeast Kansas and northwest Kansas. House Taxation Committee Chairman Richard Carlson said surrounding states have taken notice of Kansasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; changes, but he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect legislators to do more when the session starts in Jan. 13. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I look for the next year to be quiet. I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s looking pretty good right now,â&#x20AC;? the St. Marys Republican said. Brownback is also seeking to be re-elected in 2014. But if revenues are any indication, legislators are likely to have little extra money next session for budget contingencies â&#x20AC;&#x201D; such as increases for public schools or a prison expansion. Kansas will collect $5.86 billion this fiscal year, according to a November fiscal forecast, 7.6 percent less than $6.34 billion collected in the fiscal year that ended June 30. And personal income tax collections are expected to decline

14.7 percent in the current fiscal year. Though the fiscal forecast also projects $5.92 billion in revenue come the 201415 fiscal year â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a 1 percent increase â&#x20AC;&#x201D; any surpluses will evaporate and leave a shortfall by the 2018 session, documents from the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Legislative Research Department showed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be a disaster on the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget,â&#x20AC;? Senate Minority Leader Anthony Hensley, a Topeka Democrat, said of the tax cuts recently. Whatever happens, the cuts likely will be front and center during Brownbackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bid for a second term. House Minority Leader Paul Davis, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s running against Brownback, has been one of the harshest critics of the tax cut. The Lawrence Democrat argues Kansas cannot afford to lose that much money from a main source that quickly and that essential services, such as public education and social services, will bear the brunt of the effects.

Teri Leet planned to start raising the $2,000 to purchase an AED device for Theatre Lawrence at the party for Jake Saturday afternoon, but serendipity struck again. Val Phillips, a mother of one of Jake Leetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s friends, had driven her daughter to the party. When she learned of the celebrationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s purpose, she was shocked. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d recently replaced all the AEDs at her workplace in Kansas City and had the old devices stashed away. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know this was a fundraiser for an AED,â&#x20AC;?

Phillips offered to donate two AEDs to the theater. While the devices will expire in 2015, they can be used while Theatre Lawrence raises funds to purchase a new AED. But just because Theatre Lawrence will now have the AEDs, Terri Leet wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be slowing down her efforts. She said she will continue raising money with the Lawrence Memorial Hospital Endowment Association for CPR and AED education and to purchase AEDs for other establishments in town. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We own it to each other as a community to get certified,â&#x20AC;? Teri Leet said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Looking forward, I would like to see an AED device on every block downtown.â&#x20AC;?

BRIEFLY Police investigating armed robbery Lawrence police are investigating a reported armed robbery that took place late Friday in North Lawrence. Police say a black male wearing a ski mask entered a combination gas station and liquor store after 11 p.m. Friday in the 1800 block of West Second Street, displayed a knife and escaped with an undisclosed amount of cash. Sgt. Damon Thomas, a Lawrence Police Department spokesman, said the suspect has not yet been identified and is estimated to be about 6 feet 2 inches and 180 pounds. Thomas said the man also wore

a black jacket and black gloves.

Lawrence man killed in car accident A Lawrence man died early Saturday morning after a two-vehicle accident just south of Newton. Jeffery R. Ely, 27, died after his 2004 Chevrolet Tahoe, which was stopped northbound in the right lane of Interstate 135, was struck in the rear by a 2001 Freightliner Semi, according to a Kansas Highway Patrol crash log. The driver of the semitrailer, a 38-year-old Mississippi man named Michael A. Harbin, was not injured in the accident, which occurred at 2:09 a.m. about two and a half miles south of Newton.

According to the crash log, Ely was not wearing a seat belt and was pronounced dead at 4:53 a.m.

Two men accused of securities violations WICHITA â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Kansas Securities Commission has filed a petition accusing two men of violating state securities laws when they tried to develop locations in downtown Wichita. Michael Elzufon and David Lundberg first began attempts to revitalize downtown Wichita in 2004. The commission said in a petition Tuesday that both men are accused of violating the Kansas Uniform Securities Act by selling unregistered securities to raise capital

for downtown Wichita real estate projects. Jeff Kruske, general counsel for the state securities commissioner, said the case against Elzufon and Lundberg isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a criminal case, but they face substantial financial penalties.

Two arrested in babyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death SALINA â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A man and woman have been arrested in the death of a 3-month-old baby boy at a Salina home. Officers were called to the home Thursday to investigate a report of an unresponsive child. Police Lt. Sean Morton said the child was pronounced dead, and a man and woman were taken into custody for questioning. He wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say if the adults were the childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parents.

Presidential library could be in Chicago, Hawaii By Josh Lederman Associated Press

HONOLULU â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Not far from these wind-swept shores, Barack Obama was born and raised, soaking in an island sensibility that his family says heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s carried with him throughout his journey as president. Yet in the search for a home for his future presidential library, Hawaii is playing the underdog, overshadowed by Chicago and the commanding role it plays in Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s story. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not for lack of trying. A high-level campaign has been underway here since Obama won the Iowa caucuses in 2008 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; before it was even clear heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d win his partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nomination, much less the presidency. From the governor to the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s congressional delegation and local university leaders, Hawaii

has spared no effort in laying the groundwork for a potential library, gently pressing Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sister and close friends, and setting aside prime oceanfront real estate just in case Hawaiiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s favorite son chooses Oahu to host the monument to his legacy. But as the gears start to turn in the Obama machinery that will eventually develop the library, the focus has increasingly turned to Chicago, where Obama was first elected and came into his own as a national political figure. It is a place many of his advisers and staunchest supporters call home. Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s former chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel, is now Chicagoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mayor. Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wife, Michelle, was born there, and her former chief of staff, Susan Sher, is leading a behind-the-scenes effort

to lure the library to University of Chicago from her post in the university presidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the same university where Obama once taught law and where his longtime senior adviser, David Axelrod, recently established a political institute. So Hawaii officials have resigned themselves to the likelihood that the library, which will house Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s records and artifacts, will go to Chicago. If thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the case, Hawaii is hoping for second-best: a presidential center, institute or think tank that can serve as a secondary base of operations for a young, ambitious ex-president. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a model not without precedent: Bill Clinton chose Arkansas for his library but housed his foundation and humanitarian efforts in New York.

Medicaid opportunity The door to Medicaid expansion in Kansas may have been opened a little wider by a plan approved this month for Iowa.


Medicaid expansion plan approved for Iowa earlier this month offers some hope that a Medicaid compromise might also be worked out for Kansas. The effort also should be bolstered by the work of the Kansas Hospital Association, which has hired a former secretary of Health and Human Services — former Republican governor of Utah Mike Leavitt — to help craft a Medicaid expansion plan that Gov. Sam Brownback and state legisaltors might support. The Iowa plan approved by the federal Centers of Medicare and Medicaid Services uses federal dollars to finance the purchase of private health insurance for low-income people who are eligible for Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act. In Iowa, residents who are above the poverty line will pay a small portion of their insurance premiums; those below the line will pay nothing. The cost of their care will be borne initially by the federal government and transferred over time to the state. Like Kansas, Iowa previously had declined to participate in the expanded Medicaid program. Kansas currently has some of the strictest requirements in the nation for Medicaid assistance. Nondisabled adults with children are eligible for Medicaid only if their incomes fall below 32 percent of the federal poverty level. That’s about $6,250 a year for a family of three. That means a parent who works half-time for minimum wage would make too much to qualify for Medicaid, although his or her children would be covered. Childless adults without disabilities in Kansas don’t qualify for Medicaid under any circumstances. The Iowa Medicaid compromise, and a similar plan being pursued by Arkansas, may be the basis for Kansas and other states that have declined Medicaid expansion. Brownback reportedly said in a recent interview that he was waiting to see how flexible the federal government was willing to be with states. Approval of the Iowa plan offers evidence of that flexibility. Medicaid expansion would be good news not only for low-income Kansans but for the Kansas hospitals that provide some of their care. One reason that the hospital association has hired an outside consultant is that its members stand to lose an estimated $66 million in federal Medicaid payments in the coming year. Those federal tax dollars will go to other states while Kansas hospitals continue to provide care to indigent patients without the full benefit of Medicaid reimbursement. That could leave many smaller hospitals in the state in a struggle for financial survival. The Kansas governor and legislators say they haven’t closed the door on Medicaid expansion. If that is true, the approval of Iowa’s plan seems like a perfect opportunity to open that door a little wider and allow Kansas to negotiate a common sense compromise on Medicaid funding.

2013 not a good year for progressives WASHINGTON — This report on the State of Conservatism comes at the end of an annus mirabilis for conservatives. In 2013, they learned that they may have been wasting much time and effort. Hitherto, they have thought that the most efficient way to evangelize the unconverted was to write and speak, exhorting those still shrouded in darkness to read conservatism’s most light-shedding texts. Now they know that a quicker, surer method is to have progressives wield power for a few years. This will validate the core conservative insight about the mischiefs that ensue when governments demonstrate their incapacity for supplanting with fiats the spontaneous order of a market society. It is difficult to recall and hard to believe that just three months ago some conservatives, mirroring progressives’ lack of respect for the public, considered it imperative to shut down the government in order to stop Obamacare in its tracks. They feared that once Americans got a glimpse of the law’s proffered subsidies, they would embrace it. Actually, once they glimpsed the law’s details, they recoiled. Counterfactual history can illuminate the present, so: Suppose in 2012, Barack Obama had told the truth about the ability of people to keep their health plans. Would he have been reelected? Unlikely. Suppose in 2012, Chief Justice John Roberts, instead of rewriting the

George Will

They are tone-deaf in expressing bottomless condescension toward the public and limitless faith in their own cleverness.” health care law to save it, had been the fifth vote for overturning it. Would Obama be better off today? Probably. Franklin Roosevelt, emboldened by winning a second term in 1936, attempted to pack, by expanding, the Supreme Court, to make it even more compliant toward his statism. He failed to win congressional compliance, and in 1938 he failed to purge Democrats who had opposed him. The voters’ backlash against him was so powerful that there was no liberal legislating majority in Congress until after the 1964 election. That year’s landslide win by President Lyndon Johnson against Barry Goldwater, less than 12 months after a presidential assassination, left Democrats with 295 House and 68 Senate seats. Convinced that a merely sensible society would be a paltry aspiration, they

vowed to build a Great Society by expanding legislation and regulation into every crevice of Americans’ lives. They lost five of the next six and seven of the next 10 presidential elections. In three years we shall see if progressive overreaching earns such a rebuke. In 2013, the face of progressivism became Pajama Boy, the supercilious, semismirking, hot-chocolate-sipping faux-adult who embodies progressives’ belief that life should be all politics, all the time — come on, everybody, spend your holidays talking about health care. He is who progressives are. They are tone-deaf in expressing bottomless condescension toward the public and limitless faith in their own cleverness. Both attributes convinced them that Pajama Boy would be a potent persuader, getting young people to sign up for the hash that progressives are making of health care. As millions find themselves ending the year without insurance protection and/or experiencing sticker shock about the cost of policies the president tells them they ought to want, a question occurs: Have events ever so thoroughly and swiftly refuted a law’s title? Remember, it is the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. From Detroit’s debris has come a judicial ruling that the pensions that government employees unions, in collaboration with the political class, extort from taxpayers are not beyond the reach of what they bring about —

bankruptcy proceedings. In Wisconsin, as a result of Gov. Scott Walker’s emancipation legislation requiring annual recertification votes for government workers’ unions and ending government collection of union dues, more than 70 of 408 school district unions were rejected. This year’s debate about the National Security Agency demonstrated the impossibility of hermetically sealing distrust of government to one compartment of it. Worries about the NSA’s collection of metadata occurred in a context of deepened suspicions about government because of this year’s revelations that the administration has corrupted the Internal Revenue Service, the most intrusive and potentially the most punitive domestic institution. Conservatism is usually served by weariness of government. The prophet Al Gore has given many hostages to fortune and this year fortune shot another of them. In 2008, he predicted the North Polar ice cap would be gone “in five years.” Finally, a regularly recurring fever of progressive indignation about the name of Washington’s professional football team again waned without success, which means Oklahoma will not have to change its name. “Oklahoma” is a compound of two Choctaw language words, “okla” meaning people, and “homma” meaning red. — George Will is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.

OLD HOME TOWN From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Dec. 29, 1913: YEARS “Crossed wires AGO this morning IN 1913 caused a fire in the switchboard at the office of the Home Telephone Company and practically shut off service in the city for the entire day. The exact damage has not yet been determined. The fire department was summoned and the blaze was soon extinguished. ‘If it had not been for the great amount of water thrown on the fire we should have had all but a few of the phones working this afternoon,’ said Manager F.

Stereotypes handicap working women By Rosalind C. Barnett and Caryl Rivers Los Angeles Times

Recent headlines bemoan the fact that, in the city of Los Angeles, only one woman — recently elected to a City Council with 14 men — holds elected office in City Hall. As for L.A. County, with 9.9 million residents, a lone woman sits on its five-member Board of Supervisors. California is not alone. Across the United States, only 73 women hold statewide elected offices — less than a quarter of available positions. That percentage has been declining for 12 years, according to the Center for American Women and Politics at Rutgers University. This sorry situation might be cited as an illustration of the glass ceiling, when a woman moves upward until she crashes into an unseen barrier. But new research tells us that a better image for what’s happening today is what we call the “plugged pipeline.” In the workplace, women are hitting barriers and getting tripped up all along the way, not just as they near the top. In corporate America, the number of women promoted to board seats in Fortune 500 companies, which had steadily increased in the late 20th century, has dropped over the last three years, according to a major report in 2011 by the consulting firm McKinsey & Co. It found that the proportion of women falls quickly as you look higher in the corporate hierarchy, and overall, “this picture has not improved for years.” Also, women’s gains in computer science and engineering have slowed or even shifted into reverse. Women make up a dismal 11 percent of tech executives. The percentage of women in computer fields has declined from nearly 40 percent in 1991 to 25 percent today, accord-

ing to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Women are doing well in academia, where they now earn the majority of advanced degrees. But it’s a different story in the workplace. Women are stalling out, and the higher they go, the harder it gets. Why? The direct, in-your-face gender discrimination of the past has faded, but bias hasn’t vanished. It’s just gone underground and is growing. Under a veneer of “progress,” what we call the new soft war on women is gaining momentum, based on stubborn stereotypes about what women can’t do. New research finds that stereotypes are now operating in surprising ways. Too often, young men climb the ladder ahead of more seasoned female colleagues. For promising men, potential is enough, whereas women are judged on what they’ve actually done, according to research by McKinsey and the think tank Catalyst. Women have to keep proving themselves, often fighting the stereotype that they don’t have what it takes to be real leaders. Whoever does the work should get the credit. That’s our idea of fair play. But it doesn’t always work that way for women. Often, they do the lion’s share of the work and achieve success but men get the credit. Professors Madeline Heilman of New York University and Michelle Haynes, now at the University of Massachusetts

Lowell, have found that if it isn’t crystal clear which member of a two-member, male-female team is responsible for the team’s success, supervisors or boards of directors far more often give credit to the male team member. Female members were seen as less competent, less influential and less likely to have played a leadership role in the job at hand. Both men and women fell into the trap of giving higher marks to the male team member. A woman we interviewed told us: “I coordinated and ran the network depot for a nationwide network … and a young male student was given a monetary and certificate award for the work that we did, and I was not mentioned.... And then he was given the official leadership on the next project.” We heard stories like this often from women around the country. It is an especially disturbing finding because in most cases, it isn’t conscious discrimination against women. It’s just that the stereotypes we all have in our heads about what men and women can or can’t do are incredibly deep-rooted. And what happens when women get stuck in the pipeline? Separate studies conducted by Deloitte Consulting and McKinsey found that companies with significant numbers of women in management have a much higher return on investment than companies that lag on this front. If women are held back in the plugged pipeline, the United States will lose its competitive edge. That is not good for women’s advancement or the pocketbooks of all Americans. — Rosalind C. Barnett and Caryl Rivers are the authors of “The New Soft War on Women: How the Myth of Female Ascendance Is Hurting Women, Men — and Our Economy.” They wrote this for the Los Angeles Times.

Women eye boost before Big 12


Making memories

By Matt Tait

After a few days off to recharge their minds, spend time with loved ones and get away from basketball over winter break, the members of the Kansas University women’s basketball team returned to Lawrence Thursday with some extra energy. Just in time, too, as the Jayhawks (6-5) had only a couple of practices to prepare for YALE V. today’s 2 KANSAS p.m. matchup with Yale What: Yale (5-6) that will (5-6) vs. mark the end Kansas of noncon- University ference play. women (6-5) “It was quick,” KU When: 2 p.m. coach Bonnie Where: Allen Henrickson Fieldhouse said of the TV: Jayhawk break. “But it TV Network/ was good for Metro Sports them to get (WOW cable some time chs. 37, 226) off, spend some time with their families and get back into it. The freshmen have had really good pop, and sometimes they’re the hardest ones to get back into it.” Today’s matchup with Yale will bring to a close one of the more interesting nonconference stretches in recent years for the KU women. Most years, the Jayhawks have used the nonconference portion of the schedule to rack up a bunch of victories and get some confidence heading into the tough Big 12 schedule. This year, those wins have been tougher to come by and the Jayhawks have struggled with consistency. Because of that, today’s game means a lot more to the players and coaching staff than one might think the 12th game of the regular season would. “I think it’s real important for us to end (nonconference play) with a good, solid win,” junior guard Natalie Knight said. “We haven’t had one of those in a while and that would help us feel good going into conference play.” While the Jayhawks have struggled to stay above .500 for most of the nonconference schedule, the inconsistent results make sense when considering the strength of KU’s opponents. The Jayhawks have faced two ranked teams and others who were on the verge of getting hot. They didn’t beat many of them, though, and that’s a particular problem when considering that, after today, eight of KU’s next 18 games are against currently ranked teams. “I think we really need to find ourselves in this next game,” said senior point

Mason trying to step up as leader By Gary Bedore

The best present Kansas University freshman point guard Frank Mason received for Christmas was the gift of time spent with loved ones back in Petersburg, Va. “It was good to go home. I got to see my son, my family, close friends. It was really nice going home,” Mason said after Saturday’s practice and before the Jayhawks’ holiday basketball clinic in Allen Fieldhouse. “He liked everything he got for Christmas. He was very happy. There were a lot of smiles,” Mason added of 2-year-old son, Amari. Mason, who said being a dad has taught him about “taking more responsibility on a lot of things, a lot of discipline and making me look at things differently,” took charge in instructional drills with about 500 young KU basketball fans at the 2 1/2hour clinic. The 5-foot-11 dynamo has already come a long way in the leadership department at the major college level. “I need to create more opportunities for my teammates to get open shots, to get shots for the bigs. I’m trying to be more vocal and

is best for me, I’m willing to do,” added Mason, who the last two games has settled back into a reserve role. “Right now I’m coming off the bench. I just want to give a great spark for the team, do whatever they need me to do.”

Mason — he averaged 17 points and eight assists a game last season at Massanutten Military Academy in Virginia — has averaged 7.9 points with 29 assists against 15 turnovers while logging 19.6 minutes a game. He’s made 39.1 percent of his shots, but cashed just five of 22 threes. “I’m not satisfied at all. I know I’m capable of shooting way better than what I’m doing,” Mason said. “I know it will take a little time, just stay confident in my shot.” Asked if he’s a better longdistance shooter than what he’s shown, he said: “For sure I am. I guess it will come with the flow of the game. In high school I shot more of a set shot but now in college I’ve got to jump. I’m adjusting to that. “I feel like spotting up in the corner and waiting (for a pass) ... there’s a better chance of me making the shot. But off the dribble, like going to the right ... I really have to work on that because it’s not comfortable, for real. Pulling up from the left is comfortable, and I like that a lot.” He said he’s been working on his form with KU assistant Kurtis Townsend. Please see KU MEN, page 3B

Chiefs to face Chargers team teetering on edge of playoffs

CHARGERS COACH MIKE MCCOY, CENTER, INSTRUCTS running backs Ryan Mathews, left, and Ronnie Brown during a game against the Raiders on Dec. 22 in San Diego.

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Rookie coach Mike McCoy and the San Diego Chargers are still fishing for a miracle. They’ll know today whether McCoy will keep out his playbook for at least another week or reach for his tackle box and schedule another offseason trip to the British Virgin Islands with his pal Dennis Allen, coach of the Oakland Raiders. The Chargers (8-7) remain alive in the chase for the second AFC wild-card spot. By kickoff of their home game against Kansas City (11-4), the Bolts will know if they’re still alive or

if McCoy should book that trip to the Caribbean like he did last offseason, when his family and Allen’s family vacationed together. Besides beating the Chiefs, the Chargers need both Miami and Baltimore to lose or tie. Chiefs coach Andy Reid is expected to approach this game the same as an exhibition because Kansas City is locked into the No. 5 seed. Some starters might not play and others might be in for a series or two before hitting the bench. While warming up, the Chargers will keep their eyes

on two games: Miami hosts the New York Jets and Baltimore plays at Cincinnati. San Diego can also clinch with a tie against KC and losses by Miami and Baltimore. McCoy has had a few rookie missteps, tangling his line with losses to the two-win Texans, the fourwin Raiders and, the most egregious of all, the threewin Redskins. The Chargers had the ball first-andgoal at the Washington 1 and had to settle for a tying field goal before losing in overtime.

Cavaliers suspend center Bynum indefinitely CLEVELAND â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Andrew Bynum experiment appears over for the Cavaliers. The team suspended the enigmatic center indefinitely on Saturday for â&#x20AC;&#x153;conduct detrimental to the teamâ&#x20AC;? and banned him from all team-related activities. Bynum, who signed a two-year, $24 million contract with the Cavs in July, did not travel with the team to Boston for Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s likely that he has played his final game for Cleveland. The Cavs will try to trade Bynum. Bynumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s suspension isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a major shock considering he has not performed at a consistent level and has appeared uninterested while on the floor. Earlier this season, the 7-footer, who did not play a single second last season for Philadelphia because of knee injuries, talked openly about retirement and said his medical issues have been a challenge to overcome. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a terrible situation internally with our team,â&#x20AC;? All-Star guard Kyrie Irving said.


Angels, Ibanez agree on deal ANAHEIM, CALIF. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Veteran outfielder Raul Ibanez has agreed to a one-year deal with the Los Angeles Angels. The 41-year-old Ibanez batted .242 with 29 homers and 65 RBIs for the Seattle Mariners last year. He hit his final homer of the season at Angel Stadium on Sept. 21, tying Ted Williamsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; record for the most homers by a 40-and-over player.

Jessie Vetter stopped all three Canadian shootout attempts. Kelli Stack and Alex Carpenter scored for the United States.


Gonzalez set for final game ATLANTA â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez stayed with his normal routine Friday, his last day of practice after 17 seasons in the NFL. Now, all that is left is the final game, when the Falcons (4-11) face the Carolina Panthers (11-4) at noon CST today at the Georgia Dome. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time for me to go,â&#x20AC;? Gonzalez said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to go back to my family. Go back to California, where Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m from, and explore that next chapter in my life.â&#x20AC;?

The Miami Herald

Few NFL regular seasons have ended with a more frantic finish than this one. (Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t we know it, Miami!) Week 17 bears in with four of 12 playoff spots yet to be determined and with 10 teams still alive â&#x20AC;&#x201D; however faintly â&#x20AC;&#x201D; for that final coveted quartet of postseason passes. It has been seven years since this many fans league-wide have been allowed to carry hope into the last week, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a wonderful advertisement for King Sport. Two winner-takeall finales in Packers-Bears and Eagles-Cowboys â&#x20AC;&#x201D; I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care what the records are, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sports drama to the max. The complaint of course is that mediocrity is taking over, like crabgrass, because the teams still fighting for a playoff spot include one with six losses, six with seven losses â&#x20AC;&#x201D; including the Dolphins â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and one with eight losses. So what. When it all shakes out at least nine and perhaps as many as 10 of the 12 playoff entrants will be 10-win teams. It is the barely-over-.500 teams sneaking in last that give a postseason its Cinderella element, its needed balance. Besides, this isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the NBA or NHL, where seven-game playoff series make it nearly impossible for the true underdogs to advance. And this isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t baseball, where so few (too few) teams make the postseason that Cinderellas need not apply. This is the NFL, where being in the playoffs means you have a real chance, and where being in the playoffs neednâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always mean excellence, because there is room too for the pluggers, the fighters, the grinders and the lucky. Consider that just since 1997 five wild-card teams have won the Super Bowl and five teams with six or more losses have reigned. Have we forgotten that as recently as 2011 a 9-7 Giants team wound up fitting its nickname? Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how it is entering the Week 17 regular-season finale: O AFC â&#x20AC;&#x201D; In: Broncos, Patriots, Bengals, Colts and Chiefs. Four alive for final spot, with postseason likelihood via Ravens 43.76%, Dolphins 37.46, Chargers 12.58 and Steelers 6.20. O NFC â&#x20AC;&#x201D; In: Seahawks, Panthers and 49ers. Six alive for final three spots, with postseason likelihood via Saints 74.89%, Eagles 50.12, Bears 50.10, Packers 49.90, Cowboys 49.88 and Cardinals 25.11.

Jayhawks will keep things intriguing A few random hoops thoughts while wondering how many more columns and features will be written this season about amazing and talented freshman Joel Embiid. No matter how many it is, the guy is worth every inch thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s written. Q Actually, that brings me to my first thought â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Embiid. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve all marveled at his size, skill, footwork, touch and power, but not much has been said about his on/ off switch. Of all the things that have impressed me about the big fella, his ability to turn nasty Embiid in a snap of your fingers is right up there near the top. Kind, caring and as pleasant as they come off the floor, Embiid has the ability to transform into an angry, aggressive monster on the floor. And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing but good news for the Jayhawks, who occasionally have had to beg their superstars to have a killer instinct. Q Speaking of killer instinct, is there a guy on the roster with more confidence than freshman sharpshooter Brannen Greene? I know he got off to a slow start and that he and Bill Self were not always on the same page in the beginning, but look at him now. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s had seasonhighs in minutes played during two of KUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s last three games and appears to be turning the corner in terms of earning Selfâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trust. Yet again, another good thing for this roster. I get the feeling that Greene is one of those guys who thinks heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the best player in the gym no matter the gym. And I have no problem with him believing that. Q Belief. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a word that will go a long way for KU fans this season and likely already has served many of them well. And Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not just talking about believing this team or the head coach would get it together after road losses to Colorado and Florida. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m talking more about believing in the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leader, junior point guard Naadir Tharpe. Does Tharpe take a couple of ill-advised shots? Sure. Is he a little wild at times and a tiny bit shellshocked at others? Yep. But is he the best candidate to be the on-thefloor leader for this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jayhawks? You betcha. Self has said as much, repeatedly, and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the kind of guy that just says things to hear himself talk. Stand behind Tharpe. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll make you glad you did. Q Anyone else having a hard time believing that Big 12 play starts a week from Wednesday? If the next two months go by as quickly as the first two did, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be on the brink of warmer weather and in the heart of the best part of the college basketball season. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s enough for now. Enjoy these guys. This team is made up of as good a group of people as I can remember being at KU.

KANSAS UNIVERSITY JUNIOR GUARD NAADIR THARPE HELPS CAMPERS WARM UP with jumping jacks during the KU menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual holiday clinic, Saturday at Allen Fieldhouse.


â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the way Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m releasing the ball. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m aiming it and not just shooting,â&#x20AC;? Mason said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the reason (the shotâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been off).â&#x20AC;? KU coach Bill Self believes the shots will start falling. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Frank can shoot it ... without question,â&#x20AC;? Self said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The percentages arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t great so far this year from three (but) Frankâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good shooter.â&#x20AC;? Mason would like to start piling up the assists and move the ball crisply against both the man and zone. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In man, you can break a defender down and you kick it out to the open guy,â&#x20AC;? Mason said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The zone is pretty much packed in. You have to know what you are going to do before you do it.â&#x20AC;?


guard CeCe Harper, who leads the Jayhawks in assists, steals and minutes played. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to spark something to get ready for (Big 12) play and give us confidence going into the conference.â&#x20AC;? The Bulldogs enter today having lost five of their last seven, and they have scored more than 67 points just three times all season. Despite what Yale has and hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t done, the Jayhawks spent the extra


Here are a couple things to know as the Chargers prepare to fish or cut bait: Ryan Mathews: The running back has yet to get through a 16-game regular season. That could change today, when McCoy expects Mathews to play despite an injured left ankle. Mathews was hurt against the Raiders but ran for 99 yards and a touchdown to run his season total to a career-high 1,111. Mathews wore a protective boot on his left foot all week. Smith & Charles: Most Chiefs starters are expected to play a series or two and then sit the rest of the game, including quarterback Alex Smith, who was teammates with Reggie Bush at Helix High in La Mesa, which is about 7 miles from Qualcomm Stadium. Offensive coordinator Doug Pederson said Jamaal Charles doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to be taking unnecessary hits, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but he knows, too, that in order for him to have success in the postseason, his timing with Alex and the offensive line needs to stay hot, and they have to play.â&#x20AC;?

O Ellis, White practicing: KU sophomore Perry Ellis, who suffered concussion-like symptoms early in the second half against Georgetown on Dec. 21, â&#x20AC;&#x153;is fine from a health standpoint. He may be a little stiff like heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got a little crick in the neck, but heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fine,â&#x20AC;? Self said. Of Andrew White III, who missed two games because of a hip pointer, Self said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s full speed, too.â&#x20AC;? O Tyler likely to red-shirt: KU sophomore guard Tyler Self, who has not played in a game this season after tearing a ligament across the top of his foot in a preseason practice, is â&#x20AC;&#x153;probablyâ&#x20AC;? going to red-shirt the season, Bill Self said Saturday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s three or four weeks away (from playing),â&#x20AC;? Bill Self said of his son. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not quite healed yet. We think we can avoid surgery if he takes more time off. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll

downtime focusing on themselves. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been good for us is the opportunity to get in the gym and practice,â&#x20AC;? said Henrickson of her squad, which has played just three games in the past 25 days. That practice time has led to more confidence, and a victory today would add to it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel like we have been progressing,â&#x20AC;? Harper said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s giving a bit more than they were at first and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re kind of finding where Bonnie wants us to be and getting into the system and what needs to be done. ... Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re growing, but we still have a long ways to go.â&#x20AC;?

Syracuse hands Villanova first loss The Associated Press

No. 2 Syracuse 78, No. 8 Villanova 62 SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Jim Boeheim stared up in frustration at the Carrier Dome scoreboard, his No. 2 Orange in big trouble against eighth-ranked Villanova. The Wildcats had started Saturday’s game by hitting four straight threepointers — three swishes by James Bell and another by Darrun Hilliard — and led 25-7 midway through the first half after a dunk by Josh Hart. Syracuse struggled to create open looks and went nearly four minutes without a basket as the Wildcats looked exactly like the team that already had beaten two ranked teams. “There was no indication we were going to get going,” Boeheim said. If the Orange were frazzled by their largest deficit of the season, it never showed. They responded with a 20-0 run over the next five minutes to take their first lead and never trailed again, winning a game between two of nine unbeaten teams left in Division I. “They came out on fire. They kind of caught us off guard,” said C.J. Fair, who had 17 points for the Orange despite constant double-teams. “We knew the kind of team they are. It’s hard to have a defense for the type of offense they have for the first five or 10 minutes.” Syracuse (12-0) tightened its defense and the Wildcats (11-1) missed seven shots, committed three fouls and were called for a travel before losing the ball out of bounds as the game began to slip away. Villanova trailed 34-30 at the half, not bad considering leading scorer JayVaughn Pinkston had only three points on 1-of3 shooting, his only make coming on a desperation three at the shot-clock buzzer in the final minute. “They weathered the storm,” Villanova coach Jay Wright said. “We hit shots.” VILLANOVA (11-1) Pinkston 1-4 0-0 3, Ochefu 1-2 1-4 3, Bell 7-16 5-6 25, Hilliard 1-7 2-4 5, Arcidiacono 1-3 5-6 7, Jenkins 0-3 1-2 1, Hart 4-7 0-0 10, Chennault 2-2 0-0 4, Reynolds 0-0 0-0 0, Ennis 2-6 0-0 4.

No. 4 Wisconsin 80, Prairie View A&M 43 MADISON, WIS. — Sam Dekker had 16 points and 11 rebounds for his third career double-double as No. 4 Wisconsin cruised past Prairie View A&M. The Badgers (13-0) closed out their nonconference schedule with their best start since the 1913-14 squad went 15-0. Ben Brust scored 11 for Wisconsin, while Frank Kaminsky and Nigel Hayes added 10 points apiece.

Tyler Harvey scored 19 points to lead Eastern Washington (5-6), which trailed by just six points midway through the second half.

No. 5 Michigan St. 101, New Orleans 48 EAST LANSING, MICH. — Keith Appling scored 16 of his career-high tying 27 points in the first half to help Michigan State pull away.

Most important the four freshmen have. Usually what they struggle with is defense, and they’ve done a good job of helping us become a good team.” It was a senior who led the way offensively Saturday as New York native Shane Southwell matched his career high with 19 points, but the Wildcats

Rees leads Irish to Pinstripe Bowl victory Russell Athletic Bowl

The Associated Press

Pinstripe Bowl No. 25 Notre Dame 29, Rutgers 16 NEW YORK — This nicely sums up Tommy Rees’ Notre Dame career. The senior threw for 319 yards and no interceptions in his final college game, leading Notre Dame to a victory against Rutgers on Saturday that was far from pretty but ultimately successful — and an offensive lineman won the MVP award. “I was giving Tommy a hard time,” said senior tackle Zack Martin, who took home the award. “I think he got snubbed a little bit.” Rees finished four years of football for the Fighting Irish packed with both memorable and forgettable moments with a solid performance, going 27 for 47. He has been “The Closer,” rallying Notre Dame to victories with late drives, and “Turnover Tommy,” making crushing mistakes at the most inopportune times during his time in South Bend, Ind. For his finale, against one of the worst pass defenses in the nation, Rees was mistake free and productive. He missed some throws that could have broken open the game, but, typically, he persevered. “I’m a Tommy Rees fan for life,” coach Brian Kelly said. Kyle Brindza kicked five field goals for the Fighting Irish (9-4), who finished their follow-up season to last year’s run to the national championship game a long way from the BCS — facing a two-touchdown underdog trying to avoid a losing record. Notre Dame’s play was

Notre Dame’s TJ Jones scored on an 8-yard run in the first quarter, and Rutgers standout Brandon Coleman answered with a 14-yard touchdown catch soon after. Tarean Folston’s 3-yard touchdown run with 3:38 in the fourth made it 26-16 and finally gave the Irish a comfortable lead. On the slick turf at Yankee Stadium, the Pinstripe Bowl turned into a fieldgoal kicking contest. Brindza was 5 for 6. Kyle Federico made 3 of 3 for the Scarlet Knights (6-7). The Irish dominated in yards (494-237) and time of possession (38:49) but bogged down in the red zone repeatedly. “I loved the way we were able to stay calm and

stay within our offense and continue to kind of monotonously move the ball down the field,” Rees said. Twice Notre Dame put together double-digit play drives that ended in short field goals for Brindza. A 15-play, 90-yard march that started in the third quarter and ended in the fourth with Brindza’s 25-yarder made it 19-13 Notre Dame with 12:46 left. “I love the fourth quarter,” Brindza said. “That’s pretty much what a kicker’s job is supposed to be.” Brindza’s third field goal, a 26-yarder with 6:03 left in the third quarter, gave Notre Dame a 1613 lead — after the Irish caught a break. Brindza had missed from 36 yards but Rutgers was flagged for running into the kicker to give him a second, easier, try. “We thought we played good red zone defense and we could make them kick a few field goals and attempt some field goals, maybe we could block one

and then win the game in the fourth quarter,” Rutgers coach Kyle Flood said. “We were kind of poised to do that.” Rutgers 10 3 0 3 — 16 Notre Dame 10 3 3 13 — 29 First Quarter ND-FG Brindza 21, 10:05.

No. 18 Louisville 36, Miami 9 ORLANDO, FLA. — Teddy Bridgewater threw three touchdown passes and ran for another score in Louisville’s victory over Miami. The Cardinals (12-1) spotted Miami (9-4) an early 2-0 lead, then dominated the rest of the way, racking up 554 total yards to the Hurricanes’ 174. Bridgewater was 35 for 45 for career-high 447 yards. The win was the second straight bowl victory for Louisville. With Cardinals’ fans chanting “Teddy! Teddy!” at times throughout the game Bridgewater, projected to be a top NFL draft pick if he comes out this summer, set a school record with 31 touchdown passes this season.

JUBA, SOUTH SUDAN Twenty-five thousand young men who make up a tribal militia known as the “White Army” are marching toward a contested state capital in South Sudan, an official said Saturday, dimming hopes for a cease-fire. Seeking an end to the nearly two-week crisis in which an estimated 1,000 people have been killed, leaders from across East Africa announced on Friday that South Sudan had agreed to a “cessation of hostilities” against forces loyal to former Vice President Riek Machar, accused by the government of leading a coup attempt on Dec. 15 that erupted into spiraling violence. But Machar rejected that, saying in an interview with the BBC that any ceasefire had to be negotiated by delegations from both sides. The government in the capital, Juba, seized on that statement to further condemn Machar. “Dr. Riek Machar has put obstacles to this genuine call by issuing pre-conditions that a cease-fire cannot be reached unless a negotiation is conducted,” said Vice President James Wani Igga. “This is complete intransigence and obstinacy because the main issue now is to stop violence.” In addition to those

— Michael Makuei Leuth, information minister killed, tens of thousands are seeking shelters at United Nations camps. More fighting is expected. Most serious is the looming battle for Bor, the provincial capital of Jonglei state that briefly fell to rebels before government forces took it back this week, said military spokesman Col. Philip Aguer. Pro-Machar forces are believed to be preparing a fresh offensive to retake Bor, the Jonglei state town where three United States military aircraft were hit by gunfire while trying to evacuate American citizens on Dec. 21, wounding four U.S. service members. The estimated 25,000 youths from the Lou Nuer sub-clan — the same tribe Machar is from — are marching on Bor, said Information Minister Michael Makuei Lueth. The “White Army” gets its name from the white ash fighters put on their skin as protection from insects. “He has decided to mobilize the youth in the name of his tribe,” Lueth said. The estimate of 25,000 came from intelligence inside the group itself, Lueth said. Asked if the government was monitoring the

the youths, who are armed with light weapons and heavy machine guns, were about 30 miles outside Bor, he said, meaning they could reach the state capital imminently. Earlier in the crisis some 2,000 Lou Nuer armed fighters attacked a U.N. base in Akobo, also in Jonglei state, killing three U.N. troops and a reported two dozen or so ethnic Dinka inside the base. Akshaya Kumar, a South Sudan analyst for the U.S.-based Enough Project, said it was important to remember that civilian lives hang in the balance in Bor. “Bor has already been the site of two violent clashes in less than two weeks. Its people, many of whom are sheltering in the U.N. compound, cannot withstand another battle,” she said. “The recent Lou Nuer storming of the U.N. base in Akobo set a dangerous precedent. We worry that the Bor peacekeeping force may not be able to withstand a similar onslaught.” South Sudan military forces are in Bor and will protect the civilian population against attacks, Lueth said. Most of the residents of Bor are Dinka. “It’s hard to predict what will happen,” Lueth said. “This is war.”

In book, meningitis survivor details how harrowing experience made him a better person

By Nadia Imafidon

n the last two weeks of his college career in April 2004, then-Kansas University student Andy Marso noticed a peculiar rash on his arms he thought was a harmless skin affliction. But it was soon revealed to be something much more serious, and potentially fatal: bacterial meningitis, an infection of the fluid of the spinal cord or fluid that surrounds the brain. After some of his friends saw Marso and realized something was seriously wrong, they took him from his room in Pearson Scholarship Hall to the campus health center, and within a few hours, he was flown to KU Hospital, clinging

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Mittyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lacks courage; â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Wolfâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; has it in spades


en Stillerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Secret Life of Walter Mitty,â&#x20AC;? adapted from a two-page 1939 short story from James Thurber about an ordinary guy who has fantastic daydreams, starts out lighthearted and wistful before devolving into hollow travelogues that lack the sense of adventure found in his fantasy life. The movie then becomes a weary, self-serious message film about â&#x20AC;&#x201D; of all things â&#x20AC;&#x201D; earning your beard. Mitty (Stiller) has worked at â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lifeâ&#x20AC;? magazine in the negative assets photo department for 16 years. As the magazine begins to undergo its inevitable downsizing to an online publication only (which happened for real in 2007), he becomes responsible for the last cover photo of its print edition. The new hotshot thirtysomething bosses who are doing all the firing (Adam Scott chief among them) have ridiculous beards. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re jerks. They look like teenagers wearing Halloween costumes, and the beards reinforce their lack of experience and moral authority, despite their position of power. As Stiller digs into a very forced mystery about the missing cover photo, he develops a natural rapport with Cheryl (Kristen Wiig), the co-worker he tried to friend on Moments in his real life become jumpingoff points for his fantasies, and he musters the courage he lacks to quell his enemies: In one scene he surfs the pavement in Manhattan in an effort to defeat his bearded boss. But as soon as Walter leaves New York to go on his â&#x20AC;&#x153;realâ&#x20AC;? adventure, the

and money launderer Jordan Belfort, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Wolf of Wall Streetâ&#x20AC;? has a gofor-broke mentality that mirrors the addictions of its sociopathic main characters. As a fascinating portrait of ego and denial, the movie makes a nice companion piece to two of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best movies, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Spring Breakersâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Act of Killing.â&#x20AC;? Ironically, the tones of these three films couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be more different. Leonardo DiCaprio is at his dynamic best as Belfort, a man who lives in his own hedonistic reality â&#x20AC;&#x201D; dulling his sense of responsibility and moral direction with nonstop sex, alcohol, and Quaaludes.

impossible not to relent to its hallucinatory style, and you may begin to feel a little under the influence yourself. If you want a movie that examines the intricacies of stock fraud, look elsewhere. DiCaprio starts to explain what Belfort and his fellow miscreants were doing, but then stops suddenly with something to the effect of: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Who am I kidding? You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a risky move â&#x20AC;&#x201D; insulting the audience directly, and illustrating perfectly Belfortâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disregard for the â&#x20AC;&#x153;little people.â&#x20AC;? (And although youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen the dwarf-tossing scene in the previews, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m actually not even referring to that. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a whole different level of disrespect.) No one character embodies the freakish nature of the movie better than Donnie (Jonah Hill), Jordanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s WASP-y lapdog, an amalgamation of several real-life people. Aside from being flat-out hilarious, he embodies the sycophantic behavior of everyone who followed Jordan into the inferno and encouraged the madness to continue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Wolf of Wall Streetâ&#x20AC;? is a cynical, nasty satire about human beings regressing to infantile levels. I would love for it to be the final, insane word on indecent power-hungry Wall Street behavior, but you and I both know that probably wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be the case, so trust me, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s OK to laugh.

Los Angeles Times

LOS ANGELES â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the kind of movie that comes riding into theaters on such a prolonged wave of bad buzz â&#x20AC;&#x201D; changed release dates, backstage whispers of production troubles and a swelling budget â&#x20AC;&#x201D; that the film itself starts to seem beside the point, something to just get out of the way. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the case with â&#x20AC;&#x153;47 Ronin,â&#x20AC;? an overlong, underwhelming movie now hitting theaters that certainly wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worth the wait. The story opens with a stentorian voice-over announcing that ancient feudal Japan, as history buffs will no doubt be happy to learn, was a time of witchcraft and demons. Kai (Keanu Reeves) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; referred to throughout the film as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;half-breed,â&#x20AC;? though it is somewhat unclear if that is half-Anglo or half-demon â&#x20AC;&#x201D; lives in exile in the woods, protected by the benevolent Lord Asano. After Asano is forced to commit seppuku by the ruling shogun following an incident in which he was bewitched, his faithful samurai, led by Oishi, are cast adrift as masterless Ronin. The evil Lord Kira has eyes on Asanoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daughter, Mika, and eventually Kai, Oishi and the Ronin attempt to save Mika and avenge Asanoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death. The ad campaign for the film is focused on Reeves, understandably, so one could be forgiven for

spending time during the film wondering â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Keanu?â&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Who are all these other people?â&#x20AC;? Though Reeves does have a key role, the storytelling and screen time is also very much focused on such performers as Hiroyuki Sanada as Oishi, Tadanobu Asano as Kira, Ko Shibasaki as Mika and Rinko Kikuchi as a treacherous witch. Those expecting all Keanu all the time will be left feeling offbalance. The film comes at something of a transitional moment in Reevesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; career, as he has been on a run of unexpected, seemingly passion-driven projects such as producing the engaging documentary â&#x20AC;&#x153;Side By Side,â&#x20AC;? about shooting on film versus digital moviemaking, as well as his directing debut with â&#x20AC;&#x153;Man of Tai Chi.â&#x20AC;? That film, in which Reeves played the villainous leader of an underground fighting circuit, pulsed with the enthusiasm

of a martial arts film fan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;47 Ronin,â&#x20AC;? which is directed by Carl Rinsch, has no such feelings behind it. For a film whose story is so steeped in honor, there is something dutiful but uninvolved about it, respectful without really understanding the deeper traditions â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a student faking it through a quiz. Though based on history, the movie is hung up on creating a fantasy-world version of Japanese feudal life. (Japanese filmmaker Takashi Miikeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recent â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hara-Kiriâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;13 Assassinsâ&#x20AC;? both created more vibrant, lived-in variations on similar themes.) Rinsch, making his feature debut, shows the shortcoming of someone coming from the imagebased world of commercials and advertising. There are moments of genuine beauty and a few terrifically eye-popping effects, but no feel yet for storytelling.

Looking forward to 2014


ith last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Eve guide under our belt, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to close out the year by looking at some of the most promising events and places to check out in 2014. Though I usually write about places Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve already visited, this time Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to focus on a few spots I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been to yet but hope to visit soon.

Dine in style I still havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t made it to a handful of the hottest restaurants that have opened in the past two years, including Rye (10551 Mission Road in Leawood), the acclaimed collaboration of husband/ wife chefs Colby and Megan Garrelts, who first opened Bluestem before creating Rye to emphasize the food and culture of the Midwest. Port Fonda (4141 Pennsylvania Ave. in Westport, Mo.) is a stylish, edgy, in-your-face take on Mexican cuisine that showcases the fanciful food stylings of Patrick Ryan, who originally opened the restaurant as a dine-in food truck. Port Fonda is open late (midnight on weeknights, 1 a.m. on weekends), and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re more likely to hear hip-hop than piped-in mariachi bands while sipping its pink margaritas. In Leawoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Park Place shopping center, the new 801 Fish (operated by the owners of 801 Chop House) has been turning heads with its dazzling decor, oyster bar and fish that arrives from the coast a mere 24 hours after catch. 801 Fish is located at 11615 Rosewood St. Reach for the top shelf Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m referring to the liquor shelf, of course â&#x20AC;&#x201D; or

Jennifer Lawrence voted 2014â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top entertainer


â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Give me some time to stabilize my internal organs and then weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll think about writing a book,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Marso now says, jokingly reflecting on that night in the hospital. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But they planted the seed.â&#x20AC;? Released in November, Marsoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s book, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Worth the Pain: How Meningitis Nearly Killed Me â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Then Changed My Life for the Better,â&#x20AC;? details the painful disease that led to the decaying and eventually loss of parts of both of his feet and his hands, except for his right thumb. Marso openly shares the raw emotions he endured during the four months of incredibly painful nights in the hospital and how that experience has made him a better person.

NEW YORK — In 2013, everything and nothing happened in the publishing industry. It was a blockbuster year for the legal profession. A federal judge ruled that Apple had conspired with five publishers to fix e-book prices, while another federal judge allowed Google to continue scanning books — without the permission of authors or publishers — for a digital library. The market used to be defined by six major New York publishers. But government lawyers cleared the merger of Random House Inc. and Penguin Group (USA), creating the world’s largest producer of books, and according to industry consultant Mike Shatzkin, a “new top tier.” “No longer do the ‘Big Six’ define scale,” Shatzkin says. “Now there is the Big One and the Following Four.” But with e-book sales

leveling off, and independent stores relatively stable after a long era of decline, little changed for the vast majority of people who buy or borrow books, beyond, of course, the books themselves. No mega-sellers cane out in 2013, nothing that compared with E L James’ “Fifty Shades of Gray” or Stieg Larsson’s crime novels. Adult readers turned to dependable favorites such as Dan Brown and Khaled Hosseini, while teens and grade-schoolers stuck with Rick Riordan, Jeff Kinney and Veronica Roth, whose “Divergent” series is set to debut on the big screen in 2014. Several books managed to get people not just reading, but talking. The title of Sheryl Sandberg’s “Lean In” became a catchphrase and the Facebook executive’s manifesto for working women inspired thousands of discussion groups worldwide. Robert Galbraith’s “The Cuckoo’s Calling” was just another debut thrill-

er until Galbraith was unmasked as J.K. Rowling, a delight for readers and booksellers and a puzzler for critics who wondered why they didn’t catch on. Baz Luhrmann’s booming adaptation of “The Great Gatsby” made F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel a top seller and intensified a decades-long discussion about his Jazz Age classic of status and reinvention. Two gossipy political best sellers, Mark Leibovich’s “This Town” and Mark Halperin’s and John Heilemann’s “Double Down,” showed that disapproval of Washington has much in common with scorn for Hollywood or the rich folks of Fitzgerald’s fiction: Readers like to know how the misbehavers misbehave, the closer to home the better. “People inside the beltway are always interested in what’s going with people inside the beltway,” says Mark LaFramboise, a buyer for the Washington-based Politics & Prose Bookstore. Some books are so

wished for that just the idea of them starts conversations. A biography and film about J.D. Salinger included the most specific details yet for rumored posthumous releases by the secretive author of “The Catcher of the Rye.” At least five books are planned, according to Shane Salerno and David Shields, with new works possibly coming as soon as 2015. In 2013, customers at the Changing Hands Bookstore in Tempe, Ariz., sought out a history of the only Native American to defeat the U.S. military, “The Heart of Everything That Is: The Untold Story of Red Cloud, An American Legend,” by Bob Drury and Tom Clavin. In Manhattan, a reissue of Simone de Beauvoir’s “The Woman Destroyed” was purchased by hundreds of people at the McNally Jackson Books, a choice “based on its excellent new package,” according to store owner Sarah McNally.

Definitive portrait of baseball’s greatest hitter By Jerry Harkavy Associated Press

Ted Williams would have loved to see his Boston Red Sox go from worst to first and capture their third championship in a decade. Arguably baseball’s greatest hitter, Williams appeared in only one World Series during his 19 years with the team, and his lackluster showing contributed to its 1946 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals. But the beards that the 2013 Red Sox sprouted to demonstrate team solidarity would have been a different story for Williams. A stickler for short hair and neatness, he demanded that his older daughter’s first husband shave his beard and ordered haircuts for shaggy youngsters at the baseball camp that he ran during his retirement.

Fans seeking a complete picture of the beloved star who inspired a slew of nicknames — the Splendid Splinter, the Thumper, Teddy Ballgame and The Kid — now have but one place to turn. This complex figure comes to life in “The Kid,” an absorbing 854-page biography by longtime Boston Globe reporter and editor Ben Bradlee Jr. Based on some 600 interviews that reflect more than a decade of research, this is surely the definitive Ted Williams book. Williams was a mass of contradictions. His insecure and volatile personality helped make a mess of his relations with hecklers, the women in his life and the sportswriters he derided as the Knights of the Keyboard. But his explosive outbursts and

churlish behavior were balanced by countless acts of kindness and generosity, directed most often toward critically ill children. Those acts usually escaped public notice because of his insistence that they remain below the radar, but they yielded a legacy that lives on as the Jimmy Fund and they are as enduring as his feats on the diamond. The author attributes much of Ted’s dysfunction to his unhappy childhood in San Diego. His mother, a Salvation Army zealot, and his father, a drinker who had little time for his children, were seldom around, so the tall, lanky teen found a home on the ball field. His mother was half-Mexican, and he concealed that part of his heritage for fear it might prejudice his career. His relentless quest to become baseball’s greatest hitter yielded a combination of stats that may never be equaled: a lifetime .344 batting average, 521 home

runs, a .482 on-base percentage and the epic 1941 season in which he hit .406. If Joe DiMaggio’s fielding and base running made him the better all-around player, for pure hitting Ted gets the nod. His career-long concern was to avoid humiliation and embarrassment, so it’s perhaps ironic that only after his death did the macabre news that his remains had been whisked to a cryonics center in Arizona for freezing in hopes he could someday be brought back to life made Ted and his family a butt of jokes on late-night TV. The frozen remains are yesterday’s story, but the saga that endures is that of a driven perfectionist whose performance in the batter’s box, with rod and reel in hand, and in the cockpit of a fighter aircraft during his service as a Marine pilot during two wars does more to assure immortality than whatever may emerge from the Arizona desert.

2013 brought TV surprises By Frazier Moore Associated Press

NEW YORK — Even after all these years, TV in 2013 continued to surprise us. What a fine surprise was “The Returned,” a French-language zombie series aired by Sundance Channel. And Tatiana Maslany was startling in BBC America’s eerie series “Orphan Black,” in which she played nearly a dozen varied clones of her main character. It was a year that shocked “Glee” fans with the death of cast favorite Cory Monteith, whose passing was marked in a surprisingly sappy memorial episode of the Fox series that, in the words of one character, aimed to avoid making “a self-serving spectacle of our own sadness” — then went on to do just that. It was a year that saw once hard-hitting “60 Minutes” go soft, and worse, get sloppy, with a story on last year’s attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya, based on a professed witness whose account soon came unraveled. The story’s collapse led to CBS ordering “60 Minutes” correspondent Lara Logan and her producer to take a leave of absence, and left the newsmagazine’s glorious reputation besmirched. In February, ABC’s Robin Roberts returned to the “Good Morning America” anchor desk amid unseemly ceremony after her courageous but muchexploited battle with cancer. Syfy’s silly horror spoof “Sharknado” triggered a Twitter phenomenon last summer. AMC’s “The Walking Dead” continued to defy all expectations, averaging 13 million viewers this fall as the highest-rated scripted series in cable TV history. And “The Bible” miniseries on the History channel demonstrated anew there’s a TV audience for the Good Book. Surprise! No surprise: It’s difficult, perhaps even a fool’s mission, to isolate the Top 10 programs from the rest that aired during 2013. But, in the order of their airdates, here’s trying ...

 “Downton Abbey” (PBS). It was reliably delicious and also pretty deadly in its third season, which began last January. Lovely Lady Sybil died in childbirth. Then, in the season conclusion, Matthew Crawley, heir to Downton and Lady Mary’s beloved, perished in a car crash, leaving her a widowed mother. Hankies were sopping as viewers faced a long wait for Season 4 (starting next month).

MICHAEL DOUGLAS PORTRAYS LIBERACE in a scene from “Behind the Candelabra.” His splashy and poignant portrait of “Mr. Showmanship,” Liberace, proved a dual career triumph for Michael Douglas, who portrayed him, and Matt Damon, who was no less impressive as the Vegas superstar’s tempestuous lover.

 “House of Cards” (Netflix). This Beltway adaptation of the 1990s British political thriller, with Kevin Spacey as its slithery pol, would have been good viewing on any network. But the fact that its outlet was Netflix, which last February posted the entire first season online in one gulp, proved to be the wild card for “House of Cards,” which instantly made Netflix a TV game changer.

“Behind the Candelabra” (HBO). This splashy and poignant portrait of “Mr. Showmanship,” Liberace, proved a dual career triumph for Michael Douglas, who portrayed him, and Matt Damon, who was no less impressive as the Vegas superstar’s tempestuous lover.

 “Breaking Bad” (AMC). This drama series retired undefeated as TV’s best ever. And in the final dose of eight episodes, it was never better, concluding the five-season-long saga with near-perfection. From start to finish, was there ever a more unlikely series, more successfully

executed? How long must viewers wait for anything that rivals it?

 “Sons of Anarchy” (FX). If there’s anything darker than black, this motorcycle drama remained hell-bent on finding it. In its sixth season, “Sons” was as gory, complex and absorbing as ever, populated with characters who were brutish, bloodthirsty and yet somehow commanded our respect and affection. It made crime seem thrilling but never, ever, worthwhile (a neat trick). And it featured an ensemble of actors unexcelled on any other series. (Any wonder Emmy gives it the cold shoulder this and every year?)

 “The Good Wife” (CBS). Last season, it seemed to be losing its way. But with its fall return, this brainy, sexy legal drama roared back to life with the latest twist of its recombinant recipe. On “Wife,” there’s no reliance on car chases, gun play, salaciousness or even crime. It’s a series about high ambition and shifting alliances in a grown-up world. And yet

it still manages to be lusty, soapy fun, while boasting a splendid cast and a parade of great guest stars. If only network copycats could figure how to crib this unique show!

 “Alpha House” and “Betas” (Amazon). Sure, this duo seized attention just for being on Amazon, an online site best known for selling books, overcoats and power drills. Just a few months after Netflix’s entry into original content, Amazon emerged as the latest new outlet for what used to be “TV.” But that’s not why these shows are on a Top 10 (well, Top 11) list. “Alpha House” (a Capital City romp created by Garry Trudeau and starring John Goodman) and “Betas” (with its Silicon Valley antics) were chosen by Amazon viewers to become series. The series that resulted are both fresh and funny.

 “Mob City” (TNT). Here’s a sassy, two-fisted show inspired by love: creator Frank Darabont’s love for the grand filmnoir tradition, which he honors impeccably in this crime drama set in 1940s L.A. Beautiful look. Snappy, smart dialogue. Terrific cast. In the lingo of its era, everything about this show is Jake with me.

 “Six by Sondheim” (HBO). A portrait of the legendary Broadway composer-lyricist whose works include “Company,” ‘’Sweeney Todd” and “Sunday in the Park with George,” it not only explored such creations (including musical numbers beautifully restaged for this film), but, through dozens of interviews with Stephen Sondheim himself as well as scores of other voices, it also shined a light on how a genius creates. It was an exhilarating, illuminating look at artistic achievement.

Lying and cheating in relationship should end Dear Annie: I am a married mother with two children, both in high school. But I am in love with a man who is not my husband of 21 years. “Harry” is my first love, and he came back into my life unexpectedly. He is also married. Neither of us is passionate or loving toward our spouses anymore. We both feel that we are growing apart from them. I am waiting for my children to finish high school before I make any final move. My husband still seems to believe we can be a happy couple, but I don’t agree. He is unaware of my affair, but I can tell that he feels that I’m growing more distant from him every day. An additional problem, however, is that Harry seems to go through fits and starts about leaving his large family for me. But his marriage is based on

And starting with “Piano Man” in 1973, Long Island, N.Y., native Billy Joel was a hit-making machine for the better part of two decades. In recent years, he has devoted a great deal of time composing music in a more classical vein. It’s rather hard to believe that the pixie star of “The Apartment” turns 80 next year -- and she’s still going strong. Few actresses have the staying power of Shirley MacLaine, who first starred in Alfred Hitchcock’s “The Trouble With Harry” in 1955 and appeared on the third season of “Downton Abbey in 2012. She also turned in a great performance in the 2011 dramedy “Bernie,” one of the best, if largely unseen, movies of that year. Of course, she was a member of Frank Sinatra’s Rat Pack and happens to be Warren Beatty’s older sister.

Dear Little: No about selecting the ring, but yes about returning it. Your girlfriend, not you, will be wearing this ring for a long time. If you’re smart, you will let her pick the style she prefers. Otherwise, she may resent wearing it. You get to decide the price range. And if she breaks the engagement, she should return the ring. But as your first lesson in marriage, please learn to listen to the other person and be accommodating when you can. — Send questions to, or Annie’s Mailbox, P.O. Box 118190 Chicago, IL 60611.

Year’s resolution. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)  Understand that you can’t dictate what others do. Instead of fighting city hall, why not choose to enjoy the unpredictability that surrounds you? Tonight: Choose something relaxing. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  Your phone will ring, and your inbox will be swamped with emails. Don’t be surprised if someone is knocking at your door, too. Tonight: Return calls. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  You might have been able to avoid the harsh reality about the holidays before, but now you might be looking at the damages to your checkbook. Redo your budget accordingly. Tonight: Pay bills first. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)  You might feel as though you have been on vacation. Some of you actually have gone away, or still are away. Tonight: Create the mood and setting you want. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)  Emphasis is on the long term and what is happening behind the scenes. Whether you acknowledge it, you need some downtime just for you. Tonight: Get some zzz’s. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  Listen to news more openly. You like to think of yourself as flexible, but be honest -- you can be quite rigid. Tonight: Go with the flow. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)  Visit with an older relative you care about. Do not hem and haw or make excuses. Tonight: Till the wee hours. — The astrological forecast should be read for entertainment only.
