‘Fiscal cliff’ deadline passes; work continues

2012 ends on snowy note

Snow causes few problems

WASHINGTON (AP) —The “fiscal cliff” deadline passed late Monday — technically, at least. The beginning of the new year in theory means across-the-board tax increases and spending cuts kick in, but Congress was working past midnight, and will continue today, to cancel them before they can have an impact. The White House reached a New Year’s Eve accord with Senate Republicans late Obama Monday to neutralize acrossthe-board tax increases and spending cuts in government programs due to take effect at midnight, according to administration and Senate Democratic officials. Under the deal, taxes would remain steady for the middle class and rise at incomes over Please see FISCAL, page 6A

Big decisions in store for public schools ———

$92M bond issue, new science standards, NCLB waiver on education agenda By Peter Hancock phancock@ljworld.com

Remember: Library will close

Mike Yoder/Journal-World Photo

A sign alerts drivers that starting Wednesday the parking lot south of the Lawrence Public Library, 707 Vermont St., will close to prepare for the library’s $18 million expansion project. The library itself will be closed today and will reopen Wednesday for regular hours through Sunday. After that the library will be closed from Monday to Jan. 21 to move its collections and offices to its temporary home in the former Borders building at 700 New Hampshire St. pending the expansion project, which is expected to last until April 2014. Any fixtures and furnishings that are not going to 700 New Hampshire St. or going into storage will be offered for sale to the public at a Rummage Sale on Feb. 9.

Education officials in Lawrence and throughout the state are looking ahead to a year of monumental decisions that will be made at every level, from the schoolhouse to the Statehouse, and even the courthouse. The issues range from a $92.5 million bond issue to be decided by voters in April to the adoption of new science standards and implementation of the federal waiver from No Child Left Behind at the State Board of Education. At the Statehouse, Kansas lawmakers will grapple with school funding issues that were made all the more complicated by the

Obviously there are implications with taxes at the state level and what the budget’s going CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1A to look like. We have some clue of what that’s going to look like, but we have no definitive passage of massive income tax cuts in 2012. But answers at all.” lawmakers may also look at host of hot-button policy issues, including one proposal to restrict collective bargaining rights of teachers. Meanwhile, the entire state still awaits a judicial ruling that could come as early as this week in a multibillion dollar lawsuit challenging current school funding levels as unconstitutional — a ruling that will certainly be appealed to the Kansas Supreme Court no matter how the three-judge District Court panel rules.

Lawrence public schools On April 2, voters in the Lawrence school district will go to the polls to decide on a $92.5 million bond proposal to fund a wide range of projects that would affect not just the buildings where students attend class, but also the way classes are conducted and how learning takes place. “It’s certainly going to be a big year with lots of potential for change,” said Lawrence school board President Vanessa Sanburn. Most of the proposed bond issue (about $71 million) would fund brickand-mortar improvements at the district’s 14 elementary schools, with particular focus on the six older schools in central and east Lawrence — schools that were once targeted for closure or consolidation. Another portion would fund districtwide technology improvements that could have far-reaching effects on the way classes are taught and learning takes place. District officials envision a high-capacity wireless broadband network that would usher in a new kind of “blended learning” model that combines direct studentteacher interaction with a wide array of online content. In addition, district officials want to expand programs for career and technical education by launching new programs

— Lawrence school board President Vanessa Sanburn that would be offered in cooperation with area community colleges. Supporters of the bond issue say that sweeping package of initiatives can all be accomplished without raising local property taxes. But there are skeptics who say that may not be possible, given the anticipated decline in assessed property valuations in Douglas County as well as anticipated cuts in general state aid for schools that could result from the recent tax cuts. “Obviously there are implications with taxes at the state level and what the budget’s going to look like,” Sanburn said. “We have some clue of what that’s going to look like, but we have no definitive answers at all.” At the same time voters are deciding on the bond issue, they will also be electing three board members to new terms. So far, Bob Byers is the only incumbent who has announced plans to seek reelection. Sanburn, whose seat is also up for election in 2013, has not decided whether she’ll seek another term. The other seat is currently held by Mark Bradford, who indicated earlier that he is leaning against running again.

the budget, so we have to figure out how to patch that hole,” said Sen. Tom Holland, D-Baldwin City, who serves as the ranking Democrat on the Senate Assessments and Taxation Committee. “We know the numbers. We’re going to go from about a $500 million surplus (this year) to something like $200 million underwater (next year) and, according to Legislative Research, a budget deficit of $2.5 billion by 2018.” Holland and other Democrats say they will push for restoring cuts totaling about 13 percent in base state aid for schools that have been enacted since the economic downturn began in 2008 and 2009. So far, Gov. Sam Brownback, a Republican, has promised to “protect” education funding in the coming year, but details of his budget proposal won’t be known until his State of the State address this month. Meanwhile, based on the work of interim legislative committees and a governor’s task force on school efficiency, as well as measures that have been introduced in previous sessions, lawmakers may look at a number of nonbudget policy issues in the coming session, including: ! Revising or narrowing collective bargaining rights for teachers. ! Charter schools and vouchers for private and parochial education. ! A law requiring students to be retained in third grade if they are unable to pass the state reading assessment. ! And possibly a constitutional amendment to redefine the legislature’s responsibility for providing suitable funding for education.

Kansas Legislature Funding for public schools accounts for roughly half of all general fund spending by the state of Kansas — roughly $3 billion a year out of a $6 billion general fund budget. As a result, education funding is always one of the most contentious issues in any legislative session. But this year, it’s likely to be more contentious than most because the tax cuts enacted in 2012 are expected to take a huge bite out of future revenues. “It puts a broadside in

is expected to have one of its busiest, and perhaps most controversial, years in recent memory. “This will be the biggest year I’ve seen on the board,” said board member Carolyn Campbell, a Topeka Democrat whose district includes Lawrence and most of Douglas County. “The first four years I was on the board, by comparison, were just peaceful and quiet and dull compared to what all we have coming forth.” The laundry list of items the board is scheduled to take up in 2013 begins with an issue that has long been highly controversial in Kansas: the adoption of new science curriculum standards. Kansas is one of the lead states currently developing the Next Generation Science Standards, which will likely serve as a model for science standards around the country. But in Kansas, as well as in a few other states, science education is a hot-button issue that raises questions among religious conservatives about the teaching of evolution, as opposed to biblical explanations of creation. The second and final draft of those standards is scheduled for public release the first week of January, and the state board could vote on adopting those standards by the spring. But that’s only the beginning of the list of weighty items the state board will deal with in 2013. Others include: Adoption of new history and government standards, which often includes heated debate over issues about multiculturalism and the importance given to minority groups in history lessons. Implementation of the new Common Core standards for reading and math, as well as decisions about new state assessments on those standards that will be administered in the spring of 2014. Adoption of a new evaluation system for teachers and administrators that will include grading them based on student growth and achievement. Implementing other aspects of the federal waiver from No Child

Left Behind, including a new method for holding schools and districts accountable for student progress. And possible consideration of a new system for accrediting public schools in Kansas, overhauling or replacing the Quality Performance Accreditation system that has been in place since 1992.

School finance litigation Finally, with state and local policymakers dealing with all of those issues, an even bigger question lies in the hands of a three-judge panel that will soon issue its ruling on whether current funding for public schools is unconstitutional. That lawsuit, Gannon vs. Kansas, was filed in 2010 by a coalition of school districts that argue the cuts enacted since the economic downturn violate the state constitution’s requirement that the Legislature make “suitable provision for finance” of public schools. The plaintiffs are essentially the same as those behind the last school finance case, Montoy vs. Kansas, which resulted in a landmark ruling by the state Supreme Court in 2005 ordering the Legislature to increase school funding. The result was about $800 million a year in additional funding that was phased in over the next three years, virtually all of which was later wiped out by cuts enacted following the economic collapse of 2008. Shawnee County District Judge Franklin Theis, the presiding judge in the case, indicated recently that a decision would be issued around the first of the year. The ruling may not have an immediate impact in 2013 because it is likely to be appealed to the Kansas Supreme Court, regardless of which way the trial judges rule. But in the long run, if the courts rule as they did in the Montoy case, it could have a profound impact in future years, not just for schools, but also for state tax policy and funding for all other services that compete with education for state dollars.

Kansas revenues beat December forecast TOPEKA — Kansas officials say the state is finishing 2012 with strong revenue collections, beating estimates by $30 million for December. The Revenue Department said Monday the state collected $602 million in December, compared with the $572 million that had been forecast. Individual income tax payments in December Jordan played a big role, exceeding estimates by $27 million. December sales tax revenues came in at $184.6 million, about $5 million less than expected. The department also said revenue collections are running $32.7 million ahead of projections for the first half of the fiscal year that began July 1. Revenue Secretary Nick Jordan called Monday’s report a positive sign for the Kansas economy.

As the year went on, the breeze only got stronger. At the start of 2013, it may be a full-on gale. Pushed by the conservative governor, Kansas lawmakers approved massive income tax cuts in 2012 that supporters insist would stimulate the economy.

A 27-year-old Lawrence man is being held in the Douglas County Jail on a $40,000 bond for a battery charge. Carlos Wodez Ruiz was arrested Thursday and charged Friday with battery with intent to cause great bodily harm. No further details about the case were available from police. The charge carries penalties ranging from three to 14 years in prison. • A 15-year-old and a 14-year-old were taken into custody Saturday following an alleged robbery at the Dollar Tree, 2108 W. 27th St. According to Lawrence police spokeswoman Kim Murphree, police were called to the store about 6:30 p.m. for a report of a robbery in progress. A cashier at the store reported that the juveniles entered the store and told people to put their hands up, but no weapon was shown. Police responded and made contact with the juve-

niles, but no weapon was found, and no money was taken. However, both were taken into custody on child in need of care and criminal threat charges. • A 31-year-old Baldwin City man was arrested in Lawrence on Monday on suspicion of aggravated battery, criminal restraint, and intimidation of a witness. Bradley William Clark was arrested by the Douglas County Sheriff’s Department at the Douglas County Jail about 12:45 p.m. Monday. He was released on a $2,000 bond.

BENGHAZI ATTACK

Report details changes in talking points By Larry Margasak Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The FBI, CIA and other intelligence agencies — but not the White House — made major changes in talking points that led to the Obama administration’s confusing explanations of the attack on U.S. diplomatic facilities in Benghazi, Libya, a Senate report concluded Monday. The Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee report said the White House was only responsible for a minor change. Some Republicans had questioned whether

the presidential staff rewrote the talking points for political reasons. The committee, headed by independent Sen. Joe Lieberman of Connecticut and Republican Sen. Susan Collins of Maine, also said the director of national intelligence has been stonewalling the panel in holding back a promised timeline of the talking point changes. U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens and three other Americans were killed in the Sept. 11 attack. The U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Susan Rice, said she used the talking points to say in

television interviews on Sept. 16 that it may have been a protest that got out of hand. Rice’s incorrect explanation may have cost her a chance to be nominated as the next secretary of state, as Senate Republicans publicly said they would not vote to confirm her. President Barack Obama instead nominated Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, who is expected to win easy confirmation. The State Department this month acknowledged major weaknesses in security and errors in judg-

ment exposed in a scathing independent report on the assault. Two top State officials appealed to Congress to fully fund requests to ensure diplomats and embassies are safe. Testifying before two congressional committees, senior State Department officials acknowledged that serious management and leadership failures left the diplomatic mission in Benghazi woefully unprepared for the terrorist attack. The State Department review board’s report led four department officials to resign.

THE CORRIDOR THAT LEADS TO THE FLOOR of the House of Representatives is empty in Washington late Monday. House and Senate leaders rushed to assemble a last-ditch agreement to head off automatic tax hikes and spending cuts set to take effect today.

Fiscal CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1A

$400,000 for individuals and $450,000 for couples — levels higher than President Barack Obama had campaigned for in his successful drive for a second term in office. Spending cuts totaling $24 billion over two months aimed at the Pentagon and domestic programs would be deferred. That would allow the White House and lawmakers time to regroup before plunging very quickly into a new round of budget brinkmanship certain to revolve around Republican calls to rein in the cost of Medicare and other government benefit programs. Officials also decided at the last minute to use the measure to prevent a $900 pay raise for lawmakers due to take effect this spring. Democratic senators had hoped to vote on the measure Monday night but the New Year arrived first. They had met in a closeddoor session with Vice President Joseph Biden, who brokered the deal with Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell. “The argument is that this is the best that can be done on a bipartisan basis,” said Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., when asked about the case the vice president had delivered behind closed doors. Senate passage will send the measure to the House, where Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, refrained from endorsing a package as yet unseen by his famously rebellious rankand-file. He said the House would not vote on any Senate-passed measure “until House members — and the American people — have been able to review” it.

Deal to prevent rise in milk prices WASHINGTON (AP) — White House and congressional bargainers have agreed to prevent milk price increases as part of their compromise to avert the “fiscal cliff.” Senate Agriculture Committee Chairwoman Debbie Stabenow says negotiators have agreed to extend portions of the expired farm bill through September. She says that includes language keeping milk prices from potentially doubling, but excluding other provisions including energy and disaster aid for farmers. Without legislation, economists in and out of government warned of a possible recession if the economy were allowed to fall over a fiscal cliff of tax increases and spending cuts. And while the deadline to act was technically midnight, Obama’s signature on legislation by the time a new Congress takes office at noon on Jan. 3, 2013 — the likely timetable — would eliminate or minimize any inconvenience for taxpayers. Even by the dysfunctional standards of government-by-gridlock, the activity at both ends of historic Pennsylvania Avenue was remarkable as the administration and lawmakers spent the final hours of 2012 haggling over longfestering differences. “One thing we can count on with respect to this Congress is that if there’s even one second left before you have to do what you’re supposed to do, they will use that last second,” the president said in a mid-afternoon status update on the talks.

In concession, Israel eases Survivors of fatal bus crash in Oregon say some ejected restrictions on Gaza By Aron Heller and Ibrahim Barzak Associated Press

JERUSALEM â&#x20AC;&#x201D; In a major concession to Gazaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hamas leaders Monday, Israel dropped its fiveyear ban on construction materials crossing into the territory and raised hopes there that rebuilding could begin following a damaging eight-day Israeli air campaign. The easing of restrictions is an outgrowth of the cease-fire that ended the airstrikes and months of daily rocket fire from Gaza at Israel. Contacts mediated by Egypt to follow up the truce produced the concession, and Israel promised to keep easing the lives of Gazaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1.6 million residents, as long as Israelis were no longer targeted by rocket fire by Gaza militants. How long the new arrangement holds could serve as a test case for the brittle truce between the bitter enemies. It also reflects a new power equation, with neighboring Egypt under the control

â&#x20AC;&#x153;

The longer the calm persists, the more weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll weigh additional easing of restrictions that will benefit the private sector.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Maj. Guy Inbar, spokesman for the Israeli military of the Muslim Brotherhood, the parent group of Hamas. Israel, together with Egypt, imposed a land and naval embargo on Gaza after Hamas violently overtook the territory in 2007. Although Israel eased the restrictions in 2010, building materials such as cement, gravel and metal rods were still largely banned because Israel claimed militants could use them to make fortifications and weapons. Hundreds of smuggling tunnels under the GazaEgypt border gave Gaza a conduit for all manner of goods as well as weapons, though the blockade remained intact. During eight days of violence in November, the

Israeli military said 1,500 rockets were fired at Israel, including the first from Gaza to strike the Tel Aviv and Jerusalem areas. The rocket attacks killed six Israelis and wounded dozens. Israeli airstrikes killed 169 Palestinians, many of them militants, and caused considerable damage. Israel said it targeted Hamas installations and government buildings. As part of a cease-fire agreement brokered by Egyptâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new Islamist leaders, Israel agreed to consider new border arrangements in return for a complete cessation of rocket fire. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re talking about a permanent easing,â&#x20AC;? said Maj. Guy Inbar, a military spokesman. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The longer the calm persists, the more weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll weigh additional easing of restrictions that will benefit the private sector.â&#x20AC;? Hamas downplayed the move, calling it inadequate. Gaza economists said it would take years of shipments to make a dent in the gap left by the five years of blockade.

PENDLETON, ORE. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Survivors of a bus crash that killed nine people on a partly icy section of interstate in rural eastern Oregon said Monday some passengers were thrown from the vehicle through broken windows after it skidded out of control, smashed through a guardrail and plummeted 200 feet down an embankment. When the tour bus came to a rest, terrified passengers looked around for their loved ones. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some mothers screamed to find their son or daughter,â&#x20AC;? said Jaemin Seo, a 23-yearold exchange student from Suwon, South Korea.

in the death of Sunando Sen. She told police she pushed the 46-year-old India native because she thought he was Muslim, and she hates them, according to prosecutors. They had never met before she suddenly shoved him off the subway platform because she â&#x20AC;&#x153;thought it would be cool,â&#x20AC;? prosecutors said. The victim was Hindu, not Muslim. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t clear whether Menendez had a diagnosed mental condition.

But her previous arrests and legal troubles paint a portrait of a troubled woman. Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly would not say what medication she was taking or whether she had a psychiatric history. Authorities were called to her home five times since 2005 on reports of an emotionally disturbed person. In one instance, police said, she threw a radio at the responding officers.

Menendez had been arrested several times, starting when she was young. In 2003, she was arrested on charges she punched a 28-yearold man in the face inside her Queens home, but the case was later dropped. She pleaded guilty later that year to assaulting a stranger on the street near her home. The victim, retired Fire Department official Daniel Conlisk, said the attack was violent and relentless.

EMERGENCY PERSONNEL RESPOND to the scene of a fatal accident Sunday about 15 miles east of Pendleton, Ore., after a tour bus careened through a guardrail and fell several hundred feet down a steep embankment, authorities said. The charter bus carrying 48 people lost control the snow- and ice-covered lanes of Interstate 84, according to the Oregon State Police. been a Japanese passenger and one from Taiwan, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re working with consular officials from those nations to identify them. The survivors, who range in age from 7 to 74, were sent to 10 hospitals in Oregon, Washington and Idaho. At least 10 were released Monday, police said. Authorities said Monday it could be a month or more before investigators and prosecutors decide whether to file any charges against

the bus driver, a 54-year-old Vancouver, B.C., man who was among the injured. He has spoken with investigators, Lt. Gregg Hastings said. The bus was traveling westbound in the left lane of Interstate 84 when it hit a concrete barrier, veered across both westbound lanes and plunged through the guardrail and down the embankment, Hastings said. Police havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t determined how fast the bus was going when it struck the barrier.

Police: Couple had â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Terrorist Encyclopediaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; NEW YORK â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A woman who gave birth under arrest and her boyfriend were facing weapons charges Monday after authorities said they found a substance used to make bombs and papers titled â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Terrorist Encyclopediaâ&#x20AC;? in their apartment in Manhattan. Morgan Gliedman, 27, and Aaron Greene, 31, were arrested Saturday after officers discovered a plastic container with 7 grams of HMTD, a highly explosive white powder used in bomb making, police and prosecutors said. Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said Monday the substance was powerful, but

it was difficult to speculate how much damage it would do in that amount. Also found were numerous written items containing instructions on the manufacture of explosive materials and bombs, including a collection of pages that had a cover page entitled â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Terrorist Encyclopediaâ&#x20AC;? and a booklet entitled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Deadly Homemade Weapons,â&#x20AC;? court papers said. No political writings were discovered, and Kelly said the investigation was continuing into whether the couple had any larger plans or ties to any radical groups. They didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t show up on any watch lists.

The U.S. government is running up against its $16.4 trillion borrowing limit and is taking steps to avoid default. Reaching the limit Monday sets up another dispute between the White Geithner House and Congress over taxes and spending in the new year. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner says the government will take accounting measures to avoid defaulting on its debt. On Monday, it suspended the issuance of new debt for two government retirement funds.

Minimum wage gap grows among states By Mike Baker Associated Press

OLYMPIA, WASH. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; With a bump in the Washington state minimum wage to $9.19 an hour, high school student Miranda Olson will edge closer to her goal of buying the black Volkswagen Beetle sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been researching online. Olson is only able to pick up part-time hours working at a cafe after classes and on weekends. But the extra pennies sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll earn in 2013 will add up over the coming weeks and months. Many workers around the country wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be as lucky as residents of Washington state, which is raising its minimum wage today by 15 cents an hour even though it already has the highest state baseline in the country. Minimum-wage workers in Idaho will make nearly $2 an hour less in 2013 than their counterparts living just one state to the west. Automatic increases designed to compensate for inflation have steadily pushed up wages in some states, even through the recession, expanding the pay gap between areas that make annual adjustments and those that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. Of the 10 states that will increase the minimum wage today, nine did

so automatically to adjust for inflation. Rhode Island lawmakers approved that stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wage increase in the past year. Paul Sonn, legal codirector at the National Employment Law Project, said he hopes more states will start looking at automatic adjustments as the economy recovers. He said the model, which Washington state adopted in 1998, helps avoid sudden jolts as states try to catch up with each other. The automatic adjustments arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t much. Washingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bump will mean those who work 40-hour weeks will earn an extra $6 a week or about $300 a year. Hundreds of thousands of workers are expected to get a pay increase with the wage adjustments that begin today. Along with Washington and Rhode Island, the changes will occur in Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Missouri, Montana, Ohio, Oregon and Vermont. Among the nine states with automatic adjustments, the average minimum wage is $8.12 an hour, up from a little under $8. States that do not have automatic changes operate with an average minimum wage of about $7.40 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a difference of about $1,500 a year for a full-time worker.

EDITORIALS

New year hopes Last year didn’t end on a high note, but we hope 2013 will be a peaceful and productive year for the world, the nation, Kansas — and you.

H

oliday celebrations across our land may have been a bit subdued this year, as families joyfully recognized their own good fortune while acknowledging that a vicious murder of 20 young children has settled disturbingly in our collective consciousness. That horrible crime puts a patina of guilt on our own good fortune to be able to share an unscathed holiday with family and friends. Here’s hoping Santa and his helpers, who include us all, brought these gifts: ! No mass murders in the year to come. A boring year for first-responders throughout the nation. ! Leadership in the nation’s capital, with the president and Congress actually thinking in terms of what’s best for the United States of America. Enough of the partisanship! Enough of thinking only of the next election, the big donor. ! A state government that’s similarly focused on taking care of its citizens, even if that includes working with Washington. Enough of my-way-or-thehighway. ! Swift and successful completion of the next round of ambitious street improvement projects in Lawrence. We need them! ! An NCAA championship basketball team for the Kansas University Jayhawks. Nothing lifts spirits in Lawrence quite like that! ! And a winning season for the Jayhawk football team. Can’t have too many of those! ! Good friends. Can’t have too many of those, either! ! Happy graduations and commencements for our students in the educational institutions throughout our county. And successful and happy lives for all those graduates. ! An end to the conflicts around the globe. Safe return of our troops. ! For us at the J-W, and for media companies everywhere, a solution to the economic tide that, with changes in technology, threatens to wash away the Fourth Estate and the important role it can play as a source of community information, and as the community watchdog. ! For you and yours, what’s in your hearts. (Batteries included, if necessary!) Happy New Year!

Most media lists of the most important events of 2012 are led by headlines such as the re-election of President Barack Obama, the appointment of China’s new leader Xi Jinping, the revolt in Syria, the return to power of Mexico’s ruling PRI party and Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez’s battle with cancer. But there were other less noticed 2012 headlines that will have as much or more impact in our future. Many of them did not even appear on the front pages of most U.S. and Latin American newspapers. So let me share with you my list of the most important news of 2012: !" The Nov. 12 report by the International Energy Agency stating that the United States will surpass Saudi Arabia as the world’s biggest oil producer by 2017, and that Washington will become a net oil exporter by 2030. That will substantially change world politics as we know it. The technological revolution taking place in the U.S. energy industry thanks to horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing — a procedure to extract oil and shale gas through water pressure known as “fracking” — will make the United States gradually less dependent on Middle Eastern oil producers. In addition, the reduction of U.S. oil imports will result in lower world oil prices, which could pose serious problems for petro-populist countries such as Venezuela,

Andres Oppenheimer aoppenheimer@miamiherald.com

The technological revolution taking place in the U.S. energy industry thanks to horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing … will make the United States gradually less dependent on Middle Eastern oil producers.” Ecuador and Bolivia. They have failed to diversify their economies — in some cases virtually destroying their non-oil industries — and have become heavily dependent on oil and gas exports. !" The Nov. 20 warning by China’s new leader Xi that the Communist Party may lose its hold on power if it fails to crack down on the country’s corruption epidemic. Xi’s public admission, which echoed a similar statement by his predecessor Hu Jintao a few weeks earlier, was a symptom of China’s growing social unrest and defied the generalized as-

sumption that China’s rise to becoming the world’s biggest economy is irreversible. As I observed during a trip to China in October, there is an unprecedented public outcry against the fabulous riches — and their display — by the families and friends of Communist Party leaders. This could either lead to a collapse of China’s political system that will derail the country’s economic rise or in democratic reforms that could accelerate it. Either way, China’s status quo can no longer be taken for granted. !" The July 16 news report from Kuala Lumpur that negotiations for the completion of the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement, which could become the world’s biggest and most ambitious deal of its kind, could be concluded by October 2013. At a first stage, the new Pacific basin trade bloc would include the United States, Canada, Mexico, Peru, Chile, Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia, Singapore and Vietnam. But South Korea and Japan — the world’s third largest economy — may soon join in, creating a huge economic bloc that would challenge China’s growing economic weight in Asia and Latin America. !"The Nov. 25 vote in Catalonia, Spain, in which about 70 percent of the people voted for parties that support a referendum for independence of the rich northern Spain region, triggering a chain reaction of secession-

The distance to Kansas City seemed a little bit shorter this week as the YEARS Kansas Department AGO of Transportation IN 1988 raised the speed limit to 65 mph on Kansas Highway 10 on a 24-mile stretch between Lawrence and Kansas City. The new speed limit, which went into effect immediately, started about 1.3 miles east of the city limits and continued until K-10 met I-435 in Kansas City, Kan.

ist moves in the 27-country European Union. Many fear that if Catalonia secedes from Spain, Corcega and the Basque region may seek independence from France, Scotland may split from Britain and Flanders and Wallonia from Belgium, among others. Economic turmoil could be followed by political chaos in Europe. !" Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff’s decision to fire more than half a dozen Cabinet ministers over corruption allegations or suspicions sent a powerful message to Brazil’s neighbors. What’s more, Brazil’s Supreme Court decision to sentence powerful ruling party politician Jose Dirceu — the former chief of staff of exPresident Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva — to almost 11 years in prison for a scandal involving government bribes to legislators may mark a turning point in Brazil’s history. It serves as a lesson to neighboring countries whose governments control the courts to protect corrupt officials. I probably left out scores of other significant news events of 2012, but we should keep these in mind when we sit around with our loved ones and discuss the world’s future this holiday season. They may not have been big front-page headlines in U.S. newspapers, but they will make their mark in 2013 and beyond. Happy new year!

OLD HOME TOWN

PUBLIC FORUM

JOURNAL-WORLD

Global news of note from 2012

To the editor: Thanks to David Reber for illustrating the parallels between misuse of guns and abuse of alcohol in this country (Public Forum, Dec. 22). He performs a service by pointing out another one of our blind spots. But having shown us the parallels, Reber lapses into histrionics, which serve no purpose but distraction. To quote Mr. Reber: “Tell the parents of 5,000 booze-killed kids how your selfish need for convenient drinking trumps their kids’ lives. Then wipe the blood off your bottles and shut up about my guns.” If this were a moral contest, maybe Mr. Reber would win. We drinkers are arguably just as selfish as gun owners, maybe more so. But this is not a moral contest, or at least it shouldn‘t be. We should be talking about how to make our country safer for ourselves and our children. And if safety is truly our goal, political expediency must trump moralistic finger-pointing. For the first time in years, we may just have the political will to ban the sale of assault weapons — without loopholes. This is no small deal. Banning the sale of assault weapons would make it harder for unstable people to get access to them, hence could save lives. I have not heard a single reason why a

ban would be harmful. Our focus on guns, as opposed to alcohol, may seem unfair to responsible gun owners like Mr. Reber. But throwing this chance away, just to honor a distorted sense of fairness, would be truly unfortunate if not immoral. Marc Briand, Lawrence

Rights threat To the editor: In another example of why bipartisanship is a bad idea, the 2013 version of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) is soon to be approved by Congress and affirmed by the White House. This legislation continues to grant military authorities the power to detain anyone (including citizens) labeled a “terrorist.” It is the most dangerous form of ignorance to think that acts such as these are intended to protect. Our elected officials and the mainstream media continue to distract the public with flavor-of-the-month issues. Meanwhile, basic rights are being usurped by a federal government drunk on power and devoid of accountability. If you feel safer by surrendering your liberty, I suggest you take time to read the U.S. Constitution. Then resist those who see it as an obstacle to their goals. Patrick Wilbur, Lawrence

Attitude shift To the editor: Three reasons are used for individual possession of guns. First, national defense — not a 21st century role for individuals. Second, sport — hunting as recreation or hobby, maybe some food. Third, self defense — protection of self, but not a guarantee. So “fear” claims center stage. Does this justify guns, concealed or overt, automatic or not, in a grade school or a movie theater or an Indian reservation or a Sikh temple or a market square? Interrupting inappropriate and even fatal possession and use of guns is essential. Changing attitudes are needed, as was done for smoking. Wild West days are gone? Remember who said, “Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.”? Don Conrad, Lawrence

Looking back over the past 12 months, Lawrence residents could list YEARS several improveAGO ment projects that IN 1973 had taken place in the city. It had been the year of the monthslong downtown reconstruction project, with about $1 million spent on the tearing-up and rebuilding of four blocks of Massachusetts Street. Lawrence people could also remember 1972 as the year of the new city library at Seventh and Vermont, the beginning of the Clinton Dam and Reservoir project, and the initiation of a campaign to raise $200,000 to create the Elizabeth M. Watkins Community Museum in the old Watkins bank building on Mass Street.

Kansas PF Ellis flashes potential

KANSAS FOOTBALL

2012 in review

By Gary Bedore gbedore@ljworld.com

Guys who go against Kansas University freshman Perry Ellis every day — his frontcourt teammates — say the power forward’s doubledouble against American University is a sign of huge things to come. “Perry is getting more confident every day,” said KU senior center Jeff Withey, impressed with the progress of Ellis, a 6-foot-8, 225-pound McDonald’s Ellis All-American out of Wichita Heights. Ellis scored 11 points and grabbed 10 rebounds in Saturday’s 89-57 rout of the Eagles, becoming the first KU freshman since Thomas Robinson to record a double-double. Sacramento Kings rookie Robinson had 15 points and 10 rebounds against Alcorn State in 2009. “He’s not hesitating when he catches it. When he catches it, he’s making moves, which we need him to do,” Withey added. “He’s getting more experience under his belt. That makes up for a lot.” Noted junior forward Justin Wesley: “Perry is a natural scorer, a great scorer. There are times you give him the ball (in practice), he scores a bucket every time.” Ellis on Saturday scored in double figures for the first time since a 12-point outing against Washington State on Nov. 19, 2012, in Kansas City’s Sprint Center. He had a career-high 15 points in the season opener against SE Missouri State. “He thinks too much. He wants to please everybody. He doesn’t want to mess up,” noted Wesley, who said he has spoken a lot with Ellis and red-shirt freshman forward Jamari Traylor about their still-developing games. “You kind of have to think next play. “Once he gets past that (thinking too much), I think he’ll take off,” Wesley added of Ellis. For the year, Ellis has averaged 6.1 points and 3.7 rebounds in 15.0 minutes per game. He has hit 28 of 56 floor shots for 50 percent. He has made 16 of 23 free throws for 69.6 percent. What does he need to work on most? “Aggressiveness,” Ellis said. “I need to get in the rhythm of the game and just get better. I have to continue working hard at practice and bringing energy. Practice is the key.” Ellis says the Jayhawks (11-1), who will meet Temple (10-2) at 3:30 p.m. Sunday, in Allen Fieldhouse, have been working hard on defense. “I can see in practice,

Some of the top stories of the season were, clockwise from top left: THE DISMISSAL OF SEVERAL PLAYERS, including running back Darrian Miller; THE TEAM’S CLASSROOM SUCCESS under new coach Charlie Weis; THE HIRING OF DAVE CAMPO as defensive coordinator; TRIBUTES to Don Fambrough; THE EUPHORIA of a season-opening win over South Dakota State; THE EXCELLENCE of running back James Sims; A LOSING STREAK that hit 11 games with the season-finale at West Virginia; A BUMPER CROP of juco standouts; THE SURPRISE DEPARTURE of defensive back Tyler Patmon; AND, AT CENTER, THE MONSTER SEASON by the Denver Broncos’ Chris Harris.

Good, bad of Jayhawks’ season By Matt Tait mtait@ljworld.com

While the 2012 Kansas University football season delivered little more than losses, there were more than a few memorable things that took place — good and bad — during coach Charlie Weis’ first season in charge of the Jayhawks.

Chiefs fire Crennel, restructure KANSAS CITY, MO. (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs are doing more than looking for a new coach after firing Romeo Crennel on Monday. They’re changing the entire structure of the organization. Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt said in an interview with the Associated Press that he will hire the next head coach, and that person will report directly to him.

That’s a departure from the previous 53 years in Kansas City, where the head coach had always reported to the general manager. “The reason for it is I think it gives us the best chance of hiring the most outstanding coach,” said Hunt, who had already begun working the phones to find Crennel’s replacement. Hunt relieved the 65-year-

old Crennel of his duties after a 38-3 loss to Denver on Sunday that finished off a 2-14 season, tied for the worst in franchise history. But he has not made a decision on the future of GM Scott Pioli, whose job has hung in the balance for weeks. “I don’t have a timeline laid out on that,” Hunt said. “Obviously the beginning of February, there are a lot of

important events related to the upcoming draft, the combine and so forth, and we want to be solidified in that regard before that.” The Chiefs will have the No. 1 pick for the first time Ed Zurga/AP Photo since joining the NFL.

The Associated Press

Quite a day for NFL sacks. Seven coaches and five general managers were fired Monday in a flurry of pink slips that were delivered the day after the regular-season ended. There could be more, but so far the sent-packing scorecard looks like this: Andy Reid in Philadelphia, Lovie Smith in Chicago, and Ken Whisenhunt in Arizona, all coaches who took teams to the Super Bowl; Norv Turner in San Diego, Pat Shurmur in Cleveland, Romeo Crennel in Kansas City and Chan Gailey in Buffalo. Three teams made it a clean sweep, saying goodbye to the GM along with the coach â&#x20AC;&#x201D; San Diego, Cleveland, Arizona. General managers also were fired in Jacksonville and in New York, where Rex Ryan held onto his coaching job with the Jets despite a losing record. Reid was the longest tenured of the coaches, removed after 14 seasons and a Super Bowl appearance in 2005 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a loss to New England. Smith spent nine seasons with the Bears, leading them to the 2007 Super Bowl â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a loss to the Indianapolis Colts. Turner has now been fired as head coach by three teams. San Diego won the AFC West from 2006-09, but didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make the postseason the last three years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Both Norv and A.J. are consummate NFL professionals, and they understand that in this league, the bottom-line is winning,â&#x20AC;? Chargers President Dean Spanos said in a statement.

Boise St. backs out of move to Big East The Associated Press

Boise State has backed out on a commitment to join the Big East and will remain a member of the Mountain West in 2013 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and San Diego State could be next to reverse course. Boise State and the Mountain West announced Monday they had come to an agreement to keep the Broncos playing in the league they have been a part of the past two seasons. Boise State, which left the Western Athletic Conference for the Mountain West after the 2010 season, is still on the hook to pay a $5 million exit fee to the Big East, though the school says there are â&#x20AC;&#x153;provisionsâ&#x20AC;? which could make it less. Mountain West Commissioner Craig Thompson said the conference will help Boise State pay its exit fee. The Broncos were scheduled to join the Big East next year for football only. Boise Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s other sports were going to compete in the Big West. But more recent defections from the Big East made Boise State reconsider. And the Broncos were able to cut a sweet deal with the Mountain West that could allow Boise State to cash-in on its popular and perennially powerful football program. The Mountain West recently restructured its television deal with CBS Sports Network to allow the conference to sell games to other national networks. The deal, which runs through the 2015-16 season, will net a $300,000 bonus for schools that appear on ESPN, ESPN2, NBC, CBS or Fox, with an additional bonus of $200,000 for a Saturday game. Under its new agreement with the Mountain West, Boise State home football games will not be part of the current or future Mountain West television rights contracts, BSU president Robert Kustra said. The schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home games will be sold separately by the conference and the university and revenue will be distributed among league members. But Boise State can make extra money by being on national television more often than its conference mates.

Whisenhunt was fired after six seasons, including taking the Cardinals to a Super Bowl loss to Pittsburgh after the 2008 season. He had more wins than any other coach in Cardinals history, going 45-51, and has one year worth about $5.5 million left on his contract. GM Rod Graves had been with Arizona for 16 years, nine in his current position. A 5-11 record after a 4-0 start cost him and Whisenhunt their jobs. Gailey was dumped after three seasons with the Bills; Shurmur after two. Reid took over a 3-13 Eagles team in 1999, drafted Donovan McNabb with the No. 2 overall pick and quickly turned the franchise into a title contender. He led them to a run of four straight NFC championship games, a streak that ended with a trip to the NFL title game. But the team hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t won a playoff game since 2008 and after last seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 8-8 finish, owner Jeffrey Lurie said he was looking for improvement this year. Instead, it was even worse. The Eagles finished 4-12. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you have a season like that, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s embarrassing. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s personally crushing to me and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s terrible,â&#x20AC;? Lurie said at a news

Veteran lineman Lilja retires KANSAS CITY, MO. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Chiefs veteran offensive lineman Ryan Lilja, who helped block for Peyton Manning during the Indianapolis Coltsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Super Bowl-winning 2006 season, announced his retirement Monday. Lilja said he was going to â&#x20AC;&#x153;hang it upâ&#x20AC;? after the Chiefs finished a 2-14 season with a 38-3 loss to the Denver Broncos on Sunday. Lilja played guard his entire career until injuries forced him to play the majority of this season at center. Lilja said he relished the opportunity to learn a new position, even though he knew at the beginning of the season that it would likely be his last in the NFL.

Royals bring back OF Chavez KANSAS CITY, MO. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Kansas City Royals have signed outfielder Endy Chavez to a minorleague contract and invited him to big-league spring training. The Royals announced the deal Monday. The 34-year-old Chavez made his majorleague debut with the Royals in 2001. The fleet fielder hit .203 with two homers and 12 RBIs in 64 games for Baltimore last season and played in four postseason games for the Orioles. Chavez is a career .269 hitter with 26 homers, 229 RBIs and 100 stolen bases in 11 seasons.

Tejada agrees to deal with K.C. SANTO DOMINGO, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Former AL MVP Miguel Tejada has reached a minor-league deal with the Kansas City Royals and says he is ready to return to the majors. The 38-year-old infielder got a one-year contract that will be worth $1.1 million if he makes the big leagues. There is an additional $400,000 in performance bonuses. The six-time All-Star last played in the majors in 2011 with San Francisco, hitting .239 with four home runs and 26 RBIs in 91 games. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very pleased with this. The contract with the Royals is a done deal,â&#x20AC;? Tejada told the Associated Press. â&#x20AC;&#x153; Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to try to help this team and their younger players. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m so happy because this is what I was aiming for, a chance to get back to the majors.â&#x20AC;?

QUARTERBACK ANDREW LUCK, THE NO. 1 PICK OUT OF STANFORD IN THE 2012 NFL DRAFT, POSES WITH COMMISSIONER ROGER GOODELL in this file photo from April 26, 2012, in New York. The Kansas City Chiefs will pick first in the 2013 draft, the league announced Monday. Tejada played 36 games in Triple-A for Baltimore last season, batting .259 with no homers and 18 RBIs. He was released from his minor-league deal on June 25 at his own request when he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see an opportunity to play for the Orioles in the near future. Tejada spent 15 seasons in the majors and was the 2002 AL MVP with Oakland. He is a career .285 hitter with 304 homers and 1,282 RBIs with the Aâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Orioles, Houston, San Diego and the Giants.

of 2011 to a 3.0 during the spring. At the time, Weis said his team’s performance in the classroom was a sign that the Jayhawks were willing to work and had the discipline needed to turn the football program around.

Campo hired to handle D The January announcement that Dave Campo had been hired to coach the Jayhawks’ defense brought another well-respected coach with a Super Bowl ring to Lawrence. Campo, who spent 18 seasons as a coach for the Dallas Cowboys — including holding the title of head coach from 200002 — said he elected to join Weis at KU because it offered an opportunity to get back to teaching young athletes. Campo, whose coaching career began in 1971, is one of the most widely respected defensive minds in football, and his influence helped the KU defense take a step forward in 2012. Fambrough dedications Former KU player, coach and diehard supporter Don Fambrough, who passed away on the opening day of the 2011 season, was honored in the hours leading up to the annual spring game in late April, when KU and city officials changed the street signs at the corner of 11th and Maine to bear his name. A portion of 11th Street, from Mississippi to Missouri, now is known as “Fambrough Drive,” and the portion of Maine Street that runs behind Memorial Stadium’s west side is known as “Fambrough Way.” Said KU athletic director Sheahon Zenger at the ceremony: “Don Fambrough’s passion is unparalleled, his service is unmatched, and his loyalty ... even when the going was bad, Fambrough loved KU, and that’s why we’re honoring him today.”

there’s no denying that the Weis era, on the field, got off to a wonderful start. In the 31-17, season-opening victory over South Dakota State, the Jayhawks snapped a 10-game losing skid and reminded Jayhawk fans everywhere what it felt like to celebrate a win. Although things started off on a good note, the Jayhawks quickly fell into a tough pattern of coming close but not finishing the job. KU lost five games in which it either had the lead or was within a single score in the fourth quarter. Although such efforts were signs of progress, KU finished the season 1-11 and 0-9 in Big 12 play.

James Sims shines Junior James Sims missed the first three games of the season because of a suspension for an offseason DUI arrest and responded by becoming the best running back in the Big 12 Conference and just the 11th Jayhawk alltime to eclipse the 1,000yard mark in a season. Sims’ streak of six straight 100-yard games established a school record, and his 1,013 yards pushed him into eighth place on KU’s all-time rushing list, 1,359 yards behind leader June Henley. It was not just Sims’ statistics that made his season memorable, but more his style. His relentless approach to running the football — and his overwhelming success despite the fact that everybody knew he was getting the ball — inspired teammates and gave KU fans something to scream about. Streaks continue Although the season opener allowed the Jayhawks to snap one losing streak, the season ended with several others still intact. KU will take an 11-game skid into the 2013 season and also extended its Big 12 losing streak to 21 games and its road losing streak to 22. What’s more, 2012 marked the fifth straight season in which KU’s win total had dropped — going 8-5-3-2-1 from 2008-12 — and the 11 losses were a school record.

that’s where coach is really pushing us to get better ... on the defensive end,” Ellis said. “I can see the push he’s trying to get us to do on that side of the court. I see a lot of confidence building, guys working and getting better.” KU coach Bill Self praised Ellis in introducing him to KU’s holiday campers last week: “He is the most heralded recruit ever from the state of Kansas, all-time leading scorer in Wichita. He can score. He has a chance to be great.”

the latter coming one day after linebacker Jovan Belcher shot his girlfriend to death and then drove to the team’s practice facility and turned the gun on himself as Crennel and Pioli looked on. Crennel seemed to know the end was coming Sunday night when he was asked to defend his job and said, “If your criteria is wins and losses, there’s not much defense.” “The NFL is a performance-based league, and we weren’t able to win,” Crennel said in a statement Monday. “As for my future, I’m planning to take some time to reflect on this season, evaluate everything, and make a decision based on what’s right for myself and my family.”

reeled in what has been considered the best juniorcollege recruiting class in KU history and one of the best in the country this offseason. Led by defensive tackle Marquel Combs, the No. 1 ranked juco prospect in the country according to ESPN, the Jayhawks picked up seven top-100 prospects, which only enhanced the “#DreamTeam2013” Twitter hash tag and created a lot of buzz around Lawrence.

Tyler Patmon leaves When the 2012 KU football season ended, it looked like at least one starter from the seniorheavy secondary would be back in 2013. A few weeks later, that concept vanished, as junior cornerback Tyler Patmon announced that he would not return and would seek to play out his eligibility at another school. Patmon — who redshirted in 2009, played in 35 of 36 games and made 28 starts, including all 12 games in 2012 — is on pace to graduate in May. If he does, he will be able to transfer to another school and play his senior season without sitting out, much like Dayne Crist, Mike Ragone, Anthony McDonald and Josh Williams at Kansas in 2012. Chris Harris cruising Raise your hand if you expected former KU cornerback Chris Harris to become one of the most talked-about cornerbacks in the NFL in just his second season in the league. If your hand’s up, you’re lying. Harris, an undrafted free agent picked up by the Denver Broncos following the 2011 NFL Draft, became a part-time starter in 2011 and has taken his game to a new level in 2012. He starts opposite future Hall of Famer Champ Bailey in the Denver secondary, ranks second in the league among defensive backs with 2.5 sacks, 20th in the league in interceptions and has recorded 59 tackles and 14 pass break-ups. Although his expectations remained low, Harris recently said that not making this year’s AFC Pro Bowl squad would enhance his motivation and drive — a scary thought for the rest of the NFL.

ESPN’s Andy Katz in his Monday musings: “Happy 50th birthday to Bill Self. I’m not sure there is a more perfect coach for Kansas. He will go down as one of the top coaches of his generation when he’s done.”

The only other time the Chiefs finished 2-14 was 2008, the year before Pioli was hired. They were 2-12 in 1977, the only other time they’ve failed to win at least three games. “It’s a tough day, but I can’t say I didn’t see it coming,” said right tackle Eric Winston, among several players cleaning out their lockers Monday. With five players voted to the Pro Bowl last week, there are certainly pieces in place for the Chiefs to make rapid improvement. But four of them were inherited by Pioli’s regime, and that haul of Pro Bowl players may have been Crennel’s biggest indictment. “You always want to be able to give a head coach as long as you can to build a program. I just felt we really were not headed in the right direction,” Hunt said. “The Pro Bowl balloting tells us a little about what coaches and players around

the league think about the roster, that there’s some very talented players. But at the same time, we all know there are holes.” The biggest hole is at quarterback, where the Chiefs benched Matt Cassel and his $63 million contract in favor of Brady Quinn, who struggled all year and is now a free agent. The Chiefs’ inept offense managed 18 touchdowns in 16 games, finished minus-24 in turnover margin and lost nine times by two touchdowns or more. Along the way, they broke an 83-year-old NFL record by not holding a lead in regulation until their ninth game. Crennel, whose career record as a head coach is 28-55, was hired in 2010 as defensive coordinator. Respected by his players, he was appointed interim coach last December when Pioli fired Todd Haley with three games left in the season.

Catanzaro’s kick set off a wild celebration on the field and in the stands. Some players collapsed on the field in apparent disbelief while most of Clemson’s orange jerseys met in a midfield circle.

Dear Readers: Happy New Year. We hope 2013 will be the best year ever for every one of you. May you be blessed with good health, close family, kind friends, love and laughter. We hope you will make this the year you vow to be kinder and more compassionate so you can help the world become a better place in which to live. In honor of the day, here is poem written by William Cullen Bryant in 1859: ‘‘A Song for New Year’s Eve” Stay yet, my friends, a moment stay — Stay till the good old year, So long companion of our way, Shakes hands, and leaves us here. Oh stay, oh stay, One little hour, and then away. The year, whose hopes were high and strong, Has now no hopes to wake; Yet one hour more of

‘Sisterhood’ features church ladies

When five women call themselves “the First Lady,” you’re bound to have drama — as well as intrigue and pecking orders. Welcome to “The Sisterhood” (8 p.m., TLC), a new docu-melodrama showcasing five women married to the most prominent religious pastors in Atlanta. As the wives of religious leaders, they are accustomed to being the public face of powerful social institutions. “The Sisterhood” invites these women into a single room and lets their strong personalities emerge.

The third season of “Dance Moms” (8 p.m., Lifetime) debuts, documenting the backstage machinations of stage mothers and their little darlings.

On a similar note, ABC Family allows viewers to catch up with its better-than-average series “Bunheads” (10 a.m. to 5 p.m.). Sutton Foster stars as a washed-up Las Vegas showgirl and one-time ballet dancer whose impetuous marriage lands her in a small town, under the thumb of her controlling motherin-law (Kelly Bishop), who just happens to run a dance academy. The series, from “Gilmore Girls” creator Amy Sherman-Palladino, returns with new episodes Jan. 7.

The makers of reality television are determined to give every boring endeavor its day in the sun. “Diggers” (9 p.m., National Geographic) features two friends who share a mutual obsession with finding buried objects with their metal detectors. These aren’t average retired guys scouring the beach for loose change and old bottle caps. They’re amateur historians and archaeologists who are out to find such artifacts as Civil War belt buckles and silver coins. Help yourself.

You can be pretty sure that those who watch the run-up to the Rose Bowl Parade, “Countdown to 124th Roses” (9 a.m., Hallmark), weren’t out late carousing as 2012 expired. The “124th Tournament of Roses Parade” (10 a.m.) follows.

Tonight’s other highlights:

Stanford and Wisconsin meet in the Rose Bowl (4 p.m., ESPN).

Florida State and Northern Illinois clash in the Orange Bowl (7:30 p.m., ESPN).

Divergent personalities clash as two experts brave Chile’s Atacama Desert on “Dual Survival” (8 p.m., Discovery). Its grim climate has earned it the moniker “Mars on Earth.”

Savino’s ambitions don’t sit well in Milwaukee on “Vegas” (9 p.m., CBS).

Crosby and Jasmine make a generous gesture on “Parenthood” (9 p.m., NBC).

Rayna and Deacon perform at Teddy’s fundraiser on “Nashville” (9 p.m., ABC). — Copyright 2012 United Feature Syndicate, distributed by Universal Uclick.
