Construction is underway on

a new athletics facility that will


feature a track and field, softball
and soccer facilities, and recre-
ation center. The venue, named
Rock Chalk Park, will be located in
northwest Lawrence.
The University teamed up
with the City of Lawrence Parks
and Recreation Department for
the project. The City Commission
approved the KU portion of the
park in a Jan. 8 meeting, and grad-
ing and groundwork are mov-
ing forward. However, the city
has not yet approved the plan for
the new recreation center. Ernie
Shaw, director of the Parks and
Recreation Department, said there
is a possibility it could be approved
in the Feb. 19 meeting.
Both Shaw and Kevin Loos, vice
chair of the Parks and Recreation
Department advisory board, said
this project has been in the works
for well over a decade. Shaw said
the lack of recreation facilities on
the west side of town has been a
hindrance for the city and the resi-
dents living in the area.
It will give us a lot more
opportunity for programming and
give the people in the west an
actual facility in their neighbor-
hood. Thats our number one goal:
to meet the needs of our citizens,
Shaw said. Its also an opportu-
nity to host outside and regional
tournaments and bring dollars into
the city.
Loos, who has been on the
board for six years, said the recre-
ation center has been a discussion
since his first day, but that KU has
helped push the process along by
bringing in more support, as well
as financial assistance.

University, city to
build rec center
With less than two weeks notice,
the School of Musics Trumpet
Ensemble travelled to Washington
D.C. to represent the Sunflower
State of at the Presidential
Inaugural Parade.
When the group originally
designated to represent Kansas
in the parade had to cancel at
the last minute, Kansas House
Representative Barbara Ballard
was asked to suggest a replace-
ment group of 15-20 members.
The KU School of Music immedi-
ately came to mind.
Associate professor of Trumpet
Steve Leisring jumped at the
opportunity to play such a renown
event.
There wasnt much sleep going
on for a week, there were so many
details to take care of, Leisring
said. I knew the students would
come through.
The students in the Ensemble
perform with other groups includ-
ing the basketball band and the
orchestra, but being selected for a
large, national event like the presi-
dential inauguration was an honor
and a surprise.
I was shocked, first and
foremost, said junior Spencer
Merryfield. I didnt realize we
would have that kind of far-reach-
ing ability to go to big events. It
was surprising and then kind of
overwhelming.
Merryfield and the other trum-
peters had ten days notice and two
rehearsals before they packed their
bags and boarded a 20-person
sleeper bus Friday afternoon for
the 21-hour ride to Washington,
D.C.
We worked very hard in a short
amount of time and it certainly
turned out well, Merryfield said.
The group stayed in a hotel
in Virginia outside D.C. in time
to watch the mens basketball
game against Texas Saturday after-
noon and then pack in some quick
sight-seeing. At 5:30 a.m. Monday,
the group was up and working its
way toward the parade.
The first of many security
checkpoints and many delays was
at the Pentagon Building. The
ensemble was fed breakfast while
security officials searched the bus
and all band members. Around
10:30 a.m., they arrived at the
National Mall, where they waited
in tents to avoid the cold through
lunch watching President Barack
Obama take the oath of office and
inaugural performances until they
were able to line up for the parade
at 1:45 p.m.
Everywhere you went, there
were massive amounts of military
personnel, police and security,
Merryfield said. Everything was

will also be installed, and half
walls will be removed.
We are bringing everything
up to date, said Sheryle Kidwell,
assistant director of residential
dining for KU Memorial Unions.
We are well overdue, and its
time to change up the concepts
and time to bring Es back to

want to stay up on what is popu-
lar. We need to have a place were
proud of.
In preparation for the sum-
mer 2013 renovations, a student
task force was arranged. The task
force includes international stu-
dents and students with special
dietary needs.
The food allergy section
shouldnt be behind the dessert
section. Desserts are the most
allergy prone foods, said Lauren
Wismer, a senior from Overland
Park.
Alyssa Ott, a freshman from
Dallas, is also in favor of the
renovations.
Right now there is nowhere
near enough variety, Ott said.
There also needs to be more
space.
Construction of the major
renovations will begin on
Commencement Weekend and
continue to mid August.

Sandwiched between a float
representing the state of Florida
and Marine personnel, the
trumpet ensemble finally began
marching the 1.3 mile parade at
4:45 p.m.
Despite the parade being
delayed until later in the day, the
Universitys Trumpet Ensemble
played an arrangement of
Kansass state song Home on
the Range for approximately
800,000 people who braved the
cold.
With the parade finished, the
ensemble packed, went out for
dinner and re-boarded the bus
to return home yesterday.
Assistant Director of Bands
Sharon Toulouse, who has expe-
rience in the D.C. area, was
overjoyed when Leisring invited
her to join the Ensemble for the
D.C. trip.
Its important to know how
much support the Trumpet
Ensemble got from the school,
the state and people from all
over who saw the opportuni-
ty, Toulouse said. Weve very
grateful and thankful for allow-
ing this opportunity to happen.
Director Leisring said the
quality of students and the qual-
ity of education in the School of
Music has made the opportunity
such a success.

buck, Loos said of partner-
ing with the University. The
developer has offered financing
for less for everybody, includ-
ing the city.
According to a press release
issued by KU Athletics, the track
and field stadium will be able to
seat up to 10,000 people, the
softball stadium 1,500 and the
soccer stadium 2,500. The total
cost will be $39 million, spread
out over 30 years instead of an
estimated $50 million, thanks
to the partnership with the KU
Endowment Association and
Thomas and Dru Fritzel of Bliss
Sports.
By partnering and coming
together, we can build in one loca-
tion and save some on that infra-
structure cost, Shaw said. Were
being able to share resources
without duplicating in separate
locations.
Loos thinks the project will
benefit the University as well as
the entire city by drawing in tour-
ists for KU events and youth ath-
letic tournaments, and in turn,
more revenue from retail.
Were continuing to devel-
op a better relationship between
KU and the city, Loos said. Its
really been driven not only from
a growth standpoint but also an
economic standpoint, and bring-
ing more into the city.
Although the two projects are
separate, Kansas athletic direc-
tor Sheahon Zenger shares Looss
belief in the joint effort bringing
prosperity to Lawrence.
If all the facilities are togeth-
er, it will be a more vibrant park
and it will be more of an econom-
ic engine for Lawrence, Zenger
said.
Zengers intention in building
the park is to bring the track and
field, soccer and softball facilities
up to par not only with those in
the Big 12, but with universities
nationwide.
Now more than ever, you
have to stay at a certain level, not
just with the competitiveness of
your teams, but your facilities,
he said.
By increasing the prestige of
the arenas and changing the game
day atmosphere, having state-of-
the-art facilities will also aid in
competing for recruits. Womens
soccer coach Mark Francis said
the impact the new stadium will
have on recruiting would most
likely be the biggest difference.
Its going to be like night
and day. It will put us on an even
playing field with the rest of the
conference from a facilities stand-
point, he said.
Francis said every athletic
director in his 14 years of coach-
ing at the University has told him
that soccer would receive a new
facility.
Im grateful to them that
theyve made it happen and its a
reality now, Francis said. Thats
very reassuring and Im apprecia-
tive.

KJHK is giving a new meaning


to easy listening. Te nationally
acclaimed station has developed a
new mobile application that allows
listeners to interact with DJs more
efectively via their smartphones.
Stilwell junior Marc Schroeder,
KJHKs IT Director, spent the fall
semester developing an iPhone app
that provides KJHK media in an ac-
cessible, convenient mobile format.
Im a DJ, writer and frequent
surfer of KJHK content, so I am ex-
cited to connect people to KJHKs
programming and media in that
new context, Schroeder said.
With the app, users can stream
live broadcasts, view the program-
ming schedule, call the station to
submit song requests without hav-
ing to look up the phone number
and access articles posted on the
KJHK website.
We wanted to connect people
to the articles written on KJHK,
Schroeder said. In the last few se-
mesters, I have seen a lot more DJs
writing more articles on the music
they are passionate about, as well
as several new sports podcasts that
seem to have pretty vibrant follow-
ings.
Schroeder rearranged his class
schedule during the fall 2012 se-
mester in order to schedule time for
development. Te weekly equiva-
lent of time he spent working, he
estimated, was approximately the
time spent for a fve credit hour
course.
To introduce the app, KJHK will
host a launch party today from
noon to 2 p.m. in Media Crossroads
on level 4 of the Kansas Union.
Te event will debut the promo-
tional video made for the app, and
Schroeder will present in a Meet
the Creator segment. Students
will also be able to directly down-
load the app to mobile devices at
the event.
Users can download the app free
of charge to iOS 6 enabled devices
through the App Store by searching
KJHK.
Schroeder has been the IT Direc-
tor for KJHK since January 2011.
He has completed projects such as
aiding in redesigning the stations
website that launched last year, and
this is the frst iPhone app he has
created.
I think making non-commer-
cial, forward programming easily
accessible on their mobile device
is something a lot of our listeners,
present and future, will see the val-
ue of, Schroeder said.

HOUSTON A fight between
two people erupted in gunfire
Tuesday at a Houston-area com-
munity college, catching a main-
tenance man in the crossfire and
leaving students and others cower-
ing in classrooms.
No one was killed, but the volley
of gunshots heard just before 1 p.m.
sparked fear of another campus
massacre just more than a month
after 26 people were killed at an
elementary school in Newtown,
Conn.
The shooting happened outside
between an academic building and
the library where Luis Resendiz,
22, was studying on the second
floor. An employee called police
and then herded the 30 to 40 peo-
ple in the library into a small room
and told them to crouch down,
he said.
Keisha Cohn, 27, was in a build-
ing about 50 feet away and began
running as soon as she heard the
shots.
To stay where I was wasnt an
option, said Cohn, who fled to
a building that houses computers
and study areas. All the students
eventually were evacuated.
Authorities offered no details
about what led to the fight. One of
the people involved had a student
ID, and both people were wounded
and hospitalized, Harris County
Sheriff s Maj. Armando Tello said.
A fourth person also was taken to
a hospital for a medical condition,
he said.
Mark Zaragosa said he had just
come out of an EMT class when he
saw two people who were injured
and stopped to help them.
The two people that I took care
of had just minor injuries, he told
KHOU-TV. One gentleman had a
gunshot to the knee and the (other)
actually had an entry wound to the
lower buttocks area.
Several school districts in Texas
have either implemented or are
considering a plan to allow faculty
to carry guns on campus. While
guns are not allowed on college
campuses, the Texas Legislature
this year may debate a bill that
would allow them.
Richard Carpenter, chancellor
of the Lone Star College System,
said the campus is a gun-free zone
that has been safe for 40 years.
We think its still safe, he
added.
Police evacuated and closed
the campus after the shooting. It
reopened in the late afternoon,
with classes expected to resume
Wednesday.

W
ith the New Year upon
us, an onslaught of
new shows coupled
with the dawn of awards season
is happening now. Ive hardly ever
been one for following television
shows, but despite my skepticism
that Te Carrie Diaries would
be too young for me, my undying
love for Sex and the City resulted
in my waiting for the beginning of
the series, which premiered Jan. 14
on the CW.
In the midst of all of the new
winter shows beginning, however,
experts like psychologist and sex-
ologist Serenella Salomoni have
been preaching in recent years that
couples who spend a signifcant
amount of time together watching
TV namely by having one in the
bedroom tend to experience a
decreased sex life, which can make
for a boring, monotonous, and
predictable relationship.
And when a good night in a
relationship is more frequently
characterized by Doritos Locos
tacos and channel surfng to-
gether between the latest South
Park and reruns of Say Yes to the
Dress than making some kind of
strengthening connection with
your signifcant other, months of
the behavior can send a relation-
ship into a downward spiral.
In fact, according to Mens
Health Magazine, Italian research-
ers have proven that having a TV
in the bedroom on average cuts
the number of times a couple has
sex in one month by a staggering
half. Despite the efect on relation-
ships that TVs can have, however,
the research shows that 64 percent
of couples continue to have a set in
their bedrooms.
Valuing TV over sex may seem
like a problem for 50-somethings
plus, but the wear and tear of the
day can tire us out even as students.
And, as the semester slowly pro-
gresses and midterms then fnals
approach us, the phenomenon will
likely become more common for
couples here at the University.
No matter how much emphasis
couples admit that sex has in their
relationships, intimacy, at least
on some level, is important for
all committed partners, especially
for those who are in it for the long
haul. Tis particular factor is im-
portant for even the most conser-
vative of us.
Totally banishing our TVs from
our bedrooms may not be a desir-
able or realistic option, especially
for those of us who dont live with
our signifcant others. Even for
me, I wouldnt want to give up my
ritual of relaxing with Sex and the
City by my lonesome afer my
core workout because Im interest-
ed in keeping my relationship with
my boyfriend alive.
However, a feasible option for
us to meet halfway with the issue is
to create our own rituals when we
relax with our partners at night,
sleep together, or, uh, whatever. If
we start our own non-TV tradi-
tions, that can help us reconnect
and therefore keep our relation-
ships personal and our sex lives
afoat.
For example, even when were
tired, my boyfriend and I have a
tradition of me reading novels to
him. Watching TV is easy, but we
connect better over novels like
Te Great Gatsby and White
Girl Problems. He says he likes
the white noise of my reading,
and I like sharing my passion for
literature with him. Its more old-
fashioned than renting from Red-
box, but it works for us.
And other couples can do the
same. Tey should create their own
traditions sans screens (perhaps
with the exception of an e-reader)
because of their efect on connect-
ing partners and even rekindling a
fre that could otherwise be extin-
guished in only a matter of time.
In the end, a TV seems like an
unlikely downer, but it can wreak
serious havoc on healthy relation-
ships that should be both personal

I
like to think of myself as
someone who keeps abreast
of the latest trends, and
a big part of that is reading
publications that tap into the
modern zeitgeist. But, because
I cant find any of those in a
house where about 95 percent
of the incoming magazines are
addressed to my kid sisters, Im
stuck getting my information on
how to stay hip from the teen
fashion magazine Seventeen
instead, filtered through pages of
ads for eyeliner and overpriced
purses. Herewith, some of the
nuggets of cultural wisdom Ive
gleaned from Seventeen over
the last few weeks:
ChaRiTy
Apparently, its cool to be
charitable these days, or at least
to think youre being charitable:
theres a page labeled Seventeen
Gives Back that urges readers
to donate their used jeans at
their local Aropostale store,
allegedly to boost a home-
less teens confidence. But, as
confidence doesnt mean much
when youre starving to death,
Im pretty sure that most of the
homeless people who get these
will, out of necessity, sew them
into nice little tents or cook
them up in a stew instead.
Heres an idea, Aropostale:
instead of donating the old
jeans, put new tags on them,
sell them with the rest of your
stock as destroyed denim, and
donate the proceeds to a food
pantry. If you go with this plan,
nobody will be the wiser; only
the homeless people will be able
to tell the difference!
RelaTionship aDViCe
All you guys interested in
finding a new girlfriend, listen
up: the staff of Seventeen
has cooked up a handy chart
called Is your guy being cute or
creepy? to help ladies identify
deviated perverts like your-
selves. Apparently, asking a girl
to play Jenga at a party is cool,
but asking her to play Twister
at a party aint kosher. Clearly
Ive been going about this pick-
ing up chicks thing all wrong!
Next party I go to, Im gonna
smuggle in a Jenga set under my
trenchcoat and make up some
hip pickup lines to match (i.e.
Hey, baby, you wanna pull on
my blocks?).
The guide also says that its
okay for a guy to kiss you good-
night, but when he bites you
good night, things are crossing
over into iffy territory. That
strikes me as weird. After all, if
theres one thing I learned from
watching Twilight, its that
most teenage girls consider bit-
ing a sweet, romantic gesture.
CelebRiTies
A two-page spread adver-
tises 17 Kisses You Need to
Try Now! Included is a list of
the favorite kissing techniques
of several minor celebrities,
including someone named Tyler
Posey, who says, I love it when
my girlfriend gives me a light,
soft bite right on the lips. Oh,
so biting is okay when girls
do it to guys? I see how it is,
Seventeen. I see how it is.
Men
The cover of the magazine
says you can find a Hot Guy
Poster inside. It sounds like one
of those generic brands you buy
at the grocery store when youre
strapped for cashlittle white
cans with GREEN BEANS
hovering in blue block letters
above an unflattering photo.
While I normally dont feel like
Im qualified to judge guys hot-
ness, I feel pretty confident in
saying these are store-brand
dudes: the first word that comes
to mind when I look at most of
them is lumpy, and theres even
the little block letters that say
CHRIS or DAN or JOE.
Then again, maybe these are
just the guys that theyre going
to donate to the homeless teens
who cant afford men with chis-
eled, rippling abdominals. I have
no idea.

T
here are so many animated
sitcoms currently airing
on television today. You
can turn on Cartoon Network for
some random comedy and terrible
animation graphics, or you can
tune into Fox on Sundays for all
new episodes of The Cleveland
Show, Family Guy, and The
Simpsons. But which animated
television sitcom is better, The
Simpsons or Family Guy? Each
series have been around for years
and, by the looks of it, dont seem
to be slowing anytime soon. There
are many similarities and differ-
ences between these shows, but to
me Family Guy stands on top of
The Simpsons for many reasons.
The two series are both about
a dysfunctional family with an
alcohol-addicted father who
would rather drink and hang with
his buddies than take care of his
family.
Look at The Simpsons, Homer
is an overweight alcoholic father
who has an older son and an older
daughter both who tend to fight
with each other. Marge is often the
one taking care of the family. Then
there is Lisa the baby.
It is pretty similar for Family
Guy. Peter is also an overweight
alcoholic father who has both an
older son and daughter just like
Homer. But then there is Stewie
who is an evil baby, unlike Lisa.
But now onto why Family
Guy is the better comedy. Both
sitcoms use very different types of
animation. As for the Simpsons,
the animation of the human char-
acters uses yellow for skin color
and is inferior to Family Guys
animation. The type of animation
they use is called digital ink and
paint. Family Guy uses a much
better type of animation and the
dialogue is simultaneous with
the mouths of the characters on
the screen. It is better to watch a
cartoon when the animation looks
life-like because it gives us a sense
of reality while watching.
Also the jokes and the way they
are used in Family Guy is much
more clever and original than
The Simpsons. For example,
Family Guy uses cutaways or
flashbacks that imitate current
events, famous political or cultural
influences. Although the humor
is extremely politically incorrect,
it catches the attention of the
sitcoms target audience, which
is clearly adult humor. Also the
humorous jokes about everyday
society that Family Guy uses is
a great way to catch the attention
because it makes the show more
relatable and this is what we like
to see when we watch TV. The
Simpsons humor covers much
of the same, but often tell jokes
on the walls in the background,
or newspapers and it is not easily
recognizable. This is why Family
Guy works better as a sitcom.
Even though Family Guy is
in season 11 and The Simpsons
is on 24, the creators of Family
Guy have had much more suc-
cessful careers. Seth McFarlane
has created not only Family Guy,
but also American Dad!, The
Cleveland Show, and the film
staring the talking teddy bear
Ted. This is how we know that
Seth McFarlane is a liked more by
the public because he was able to
make more hit shows while also
keeping up the success of Family
Guy.
So trust me when I say this, and
dont let the number of seasons
fool you. Family Guy is the bet-
ter show.

LOS ANGELESA fake report
of domestic violence drew Los
Angeles police to singer Chris
Browns home Monday, authori-
ties said, the latest in a series
of swatting incidents targeting
celebrities.
A caller who contacted police
shortly before 5 p.m. told them
of a domestic violence situation
and said he wasnt sure whether
the singers mother had been shot,
authorities said.
When officers arrived, only
members of Browns staff were
at the homethe singer was not,
police said. His parents arrived
shortly after the police, who had
already searched the home.
The incident was the latest in
a string of recent swatting inci-
dents targeting the homes of Tom
Cruise, Justin Bieber and Ashton
Kutcher.
The incidents, a fast-growing
phenomenon, are started by
anonymous mischief-makers
who alert police to a bogus crime,
prompting a tactical response
sometimes by SWAT officers
that involves a high-risk search
for phantom assailants.
A 12-year-old boy has been
charged in connection with the
reports involving Bieber and
Kutcher.

form at the Granada tonight. The
group consists of Duluth, Minn.
natives Dave Simonett (guitar),
Tim Saxhaug (bass), Dave Carroll
(banjo), Erik Berry (mandolin) and
Ryan Young (fiddle).
The groups title may seem
humorous, but when asked where it
came from, Berry said, I wish there
was a great story but there isnt, we
were just brainstorming and it was
hated the least.
This year marks the bands 10th
anniversary, and in that time they
have gained a strong fan following.
Its pretty crazy. Outside of my
parents and sister I havent been
in a relationship with anything for
ten years, Berry said. Its mind
blowing, but it makes sense because
it has always felt natural, easy and
unforced. Theres really been no rea-
son why this shouldnt have kept
going. In celebration, the band will
perform in April and May at small
Minnesota venues to bring homage
to their state.
The bands latest album, Stars
and Satellites, was released last April
and since then they have kept busy
with touring, playing festivals and
appearing on late night television.
Weve had a really busy touring
year, said Berry. Weve had a lot
of high points, but it was a lot of
work.
Considering that the group has
played at Newport Folk Festival,
Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo and Outside
Lands, to name a fewin addition
to performing on David Letterman
and Conandown time has been
scarce.
Although the group is focusing
on promoting its album, Berry said
that, next year we will have more
time off and more down time, and
then we will start to focus on the
future. To give ourselves the mental
head space to do so, we need to take
that break.
The show starts at 8 p.m. and is
open to all ages. Tickets are $22.

LOS ANGELES Fans who
marveled at Beyonces prowess
when she ripped out her in-ear-
monitor during Mondays nation-
al anthem at President Obamas
inauguration might prepare to be
disappointed.
Suspicions that the anthem
performed by Beyonce and the
U.S. Marine Corps Band used pre-
recorded backing tracksas doc-
umented by Los Angeles Times
reporters on hand for the inaugu-
ration, among otherswere con-
firmed when Marine Corps band
spokeswoman told the Times of
London that Beyonce made a
last-minute decision to use pre-
recorded music for her anthem
performance.
We did prerecord it and it
was Beyonces decision at the last
minute to go with the prerecorded
version, the spokeswoman told
British paper. We prerecorded all
music as a matter of course and
have done since time immemo-
rial, she said. This is our 54th
inauguration ... There is no ques-
tion of there not being any music
its not because the performer
cannot do it.
Theres long precedent for using
prerecorded music at inaugurals,
due to the District of Columbias
tendency to be frigid in winter
months, making it difficult for
brass- and drum-heavy military
bands to perform. Yo-Yo Ma used
a similar tactic during his perfor-
mance at Obamas last inaugural,
as the temperatures made his cello
difficult to play in tune.
Its not yet clear if Beyonce was
singing live to a prerecorded vocal
track, or if she was lip-syncing
entirely (weve reached out to reps
for both the Marine Corps band
and Beyonce for clarification).
Will fans be slightly let down if
the Beyonce they heard wasnt the
singer flying blind and nailing
the anthem on our nations most
hallowed ground? Given the grav-
ity and audience of the event, it
would make sense to take all mea-
sures to ensure quality musical
accompaniment, so as not to let
mistakes distract from the event.
Maybe fans should be happy
knowing that she did give a rav-
ishing performance of our nation-
al anthemeven if it was just in a
studio, a few days ago.

ART
RENO, Nev. Long before
Hostess Brands plan to shut down
made Twinkies the rage, Nancy
Peppin found something spe-
cial about the cream-filled snack
cakes.
No, she doesnt have a sweet
tooth for them.
But she has featured Twinkies
in hundreds of pieces of quirky,
satirical artwork because of an
obsession with what she calls the
ultimate American food icon.
The prolific Reno artist says she
was first influenced to focus on
Twinkies in 1975 by Andy Warhol,
who demonstrated that even a
Campbells soup can could be an
object of art.
He showed you a new way of
looking at a familiar object, said
Peppin, who has sold and exhib-
ited her artwork. Thats what Im
doing with Twinkies. Im having
people look at Twinkies in a
brand new way and in an enter-
taining way.
Shortly after Hostess Brands
Inc. announced plans to go out
of business last year, Peppin was
among those who joined the rush
to stores to fill shopping carts
with boxes of the spongy cakes.
I needed art supplies, said
Peppin, who uses Twinkies and
their packaging to create some
of her pieces. She also features
renderings of the snack cakes
in watercolor paintings, mixed
media, prints and artwork.
Her works include her
Twinkies in history series,
which portrays how scientists
such as John James Audubon,
Charles Darwin and Leonardo da
Vinci would have sketched and
written about Twinkies in journals
or books.
Peppin, an Oakland, Calif.,
native who earned a bachelors
degree in anthropology from the
University of California, Berkeley,
in 1966, conducted extensive
research to make the series seem
as authentic as possible.
The artwork reflects the offbeat
sense of humor of a woman who by
day creates special effects anima-
tion for Reno-based International
Game Technology, one of the
worlds largest slot machine mak-
ers.
Steven High, executive director
of the John and Mable Ringling
Museum of Art in Sarasota, Fla.,
said he finds Peppins artwork
and use of Twinkies as a metaphor
to explore various subjects clev-
er, humorous and imaginative.
In some ways, she takes this
kind of silly item and treats it as a
cultural artifact and imagines it as
a subject of scientific studies, he
said. Shes an excellent illustra-
tor and the way she pulls these
(works) together is amazing.

Senior point guard Angel
Goodrich continues to gain rec-
ognition as one of the nations top
players. Now,
she is being
mentioned on
the top 20 John
R. Wooden
Watch List.
The John R.
Wooden Award
is given to the
top basketball
player in the
country on both the mens and
womens side of the court.
With the likes of Brittney Griner,
Maya Moore, and Candace Parker
having won the prestigious award,
Goodrich now finds herself in the
company of great players before
her, as well as the elite players who
she competes with every time she
steps onto the court.
Goodrich is known for not lik-
ing personal awards and is the first
to give credit to her teammates, but
even she couldnt help but flash a
smile and recognize what it means
to be named as a top-20 player.
Its great, its an honor. A lot of
players in the country try to work
up to that, Goodrich said.
Goodrich is averaging 6.5 assists
per game, which ranks second
in the Big 12 and 12th in the
NCAA. Last season, Goodrich led
the nation in assists with 7.4 per
game. Also, she is second on the
Jayhawks, averaging 13.4 points
per game. She also leads the squad
with 49 steals.
Kansas coach Bonnie Henrickson
said she has known for a long while
that Goodrich would be a talented
player while wearing Kansas across
her chest.
Ive felt that shes played at that
level and its nice for her to be
recognized. Ive never taken for
granted anything she could do and
realized a long time ago that she
was really special, Henrickson
said.
Goodrich said being mentioned
among the nations best has been
her ambition since she was young,
but she never really thought she
would make it.
No, I didnt think it was going
to happen. But you want to set high
aspirations for yourself and all you
can do is try and give it your all,
she said.
Giving it all is exactly what
Goodrich has been able to do
while at Kansas. She has fought
through two knee injuries, which
occurred during her first two
years in Lawrence. However, she
looks at everything that surrounds
her now and can say one word to
sum it all up: blessed.
I didnt think I would make it
this far, especially after the first
two injuries and doubting myself,
Goodrich said. But just being
able to be blessed to be on the
court and play everyday.
Among the 20 finalists for the
award are Baylor forward Brittney
Griner, Notre Dame guard
Skylar Diggans, Connecticut for-
ward Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis
and Stanford forward Chiney
Ogwumike.
Being in that company,
Henrickson said it will only add
to what Goodrich wants to do
and accomplish throughout the
remainder of the season.
Shes part of an elite level and
she should be awfully excited and
proud, Henrickson said. Itll be
fuel for her to play at an even
higher level.
But Goodrich wouldnt be the
same player everyone knows if she
didnt try to let the spotlight shine
on everyone else and not just on
her number three jersey.
Awards arent a big thing for
me. I just like to enjoy and play the
game and be with my teammates,
Goodrich said. I give thanks to
my teammates because theyre the
ones who helped me get here and
pushed me every single day. I just
want to thank them for all the sup-
port and all the honor.

Chasiddy Fussell, guard
Fussell is a
solid defensive
presence, with
21 steals this
season. In her
last appearance,
Fussell scored 21
points on 9-of-
20 shooting. For
the longhorns to
snap the losing streak, Fussell will have
to play a large role offensively.
the longhorns come to lawrence on
the heels of an eight-game losing streak
and a 78-70 loss to their archrivals, the
oklahoma sooners. Chassidy Fussell
leads the longhorns, scoring 15.9 points
per game and starting every game to
date.
Can the Longhorns take care
of the ball?
the longhorns average 21 turnovers
per game, a stat that coach karen aston
isnt pleased with. limiting turnovers is
the key to survival in the longhorns trip
to lawrence.

the kansas Womens basketball
team begins a three game homestand
against the texas longhorns tonight in
allen Fieldhouse. the Jayhawks return
to their homecourt after losing three
straight against oklahoma state, Baylor
and texas tech. the Jayhawks struggled
down the stretch in the 70-63 loss to the
Red Raiders.
Angela Goodrich, point guard
last week
in lubbock, the
Jayhawks senior
guard struggled
from the feld
shooting 3-15
from the feld and
1-5 from beyond
the arc. Goodrich
was recently se-
lected to the John R. Wooden award top-
20 watch list. For the Jayhawks offense
to rebound, Goodrich needs to have a big
game.
Can the Jayhawks get back
to their brand of basketball and
snap the losing streak?
over the past three games, the Jay-
hawks have struggled to fnish games.
the Jayhawks dropped two games on
the road and one at home against the
top-ranked Baylor Bears. after the tough
stretch, the Jayhawks have to get back
to playing inside-out basketball in the
homestand.

Bonds, Clemens, other standouts deserve recognition

W
atching baseball on televi-
sion has truly never been
better. Now with HD LED
televisions, we can see the green blades
of grass as if we are holding them in
our own hand. However, one aspect
of the game these TVs do not clearly
show fans are the morals and values of
the players we admire. Although the
steroid era in baseball was a dark time
for the games history, baseball writers
recently chose to wrongfully not elect
any players to this years Hall of Fame.
If you think about why some of the
best players in history are not going to
the Hall of Fame this year, it is because
of their ties to steroids, even though
many of them have never been proven
of any steroid use throughout their
careers. What is worse is that for only
the second time in the past 43 years,
the Baseball Writers Association of
America did not invite a single player to
Cooperstown.
In a statement to the Los Angeles
Times, Michael Weiner, the executive
director of the players union, said the
situation is, Unfortunate, if not sad.
The Hall should include the best players
to have ever played the game. To ignore
the historic accomplishments of Barry
Bonds and Roger Clemens, for example
is hard to justify.
Many people forget that Cooperstown
is in fact a museum. A museum with
rich history. A museum where the aver-
age person can walk in and learn about
Americas pastime, both the good and
bad. I visited the website for the Hall of
Fame and looked up the rules. No-
where was I able to find anything that
states a player is prohibited from being
elected due to steroid use.
The great thing about America is that
we are willing to give second chances
to the ones we love after they do
something wrong. When Tiger Woods
committed adultery, we forgave him. He
is still playing golf, though he has not
won a major since. After Michael Vick
served time in jail for his dog fighting
involvement, we forgave him and let
him back in the NFL, although he is not
the same player he used to be. So even
though the accused baseball players
were not elected to the Hall of Fame
this year, the BBWAA should give the
accused a second chance when they ap-
pear on the ballot for next year.

Penn State students Dan Hamm, left, a freshman from Williamsport, Pa., and Nick Bucci, a freshman from
Dayton, Md., visit the grave of former Penn State head football coach Joe Paterno in State College, Pa. Sup-
porters of Paterno are marking the 1-year anniversary of his death with a candlelight vigil Tuesday night.
NATIONAL
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. Flowers and
mementos left by supporters adorned Joe
Paternos gravesite Tuesday, a year after
the longtime Penn State coachs death,
while at the spot where a bronze statue
of him used to stand, a makeshift sign of
cardboard flapped in a cold wind.
Joseph Paterno. Always remembered.
Always a legend, read the sign outside
Beaver Stadium and attached to a tree
with white wire.
The Hall of Fame coach died of lung
cancer Jan. 22, 2012, at age 85. Besides
the bouquets and signs, supporters also
planned to mark the anniversary of his
death with a candlelight vigil at a down-
town State College mural that includes a
depiction of Paterno.
He died more than two months after
being fired in the frantic days following
the arrest of former assistant coach Jerry
Sandusky on child molestation charges
in November 2011. His legacy remains
a sensitive topic for groups of alumni,
former players and local residents.
A family spokesman has said the
Paternos would not take part in public
gatherings Tuesday.
A year ago, the campus was flooded
with mourners. Commemorations were
much smaller on a frigid Tuesday with
temperatures in the teens.
Supporters like Dan Hamm, a fresh-
man from Williamsport, have said
Paternos 46-year career as a whole
should be taken into consideration,
including the longtime coachs focus on
academics.
We wanted to pay our respects. We
wanted to celebrate who he was as a per-
son, Hamm said after visiting Paternos
grave at a State College cemetery on a
blustery afternoon.
Then, nodding his head in the direc-
tion of Paternos adorned gravesite,
Hamm said, You can see here that Joe
Paterno was Penn State, and Penn State
will always be Joe Paterno.
Former FBI director Louis Freeh
released findings July 12 in the schools
internal investigation of the scandal.
Paternos reputation was tarnished after
Freeh accused the coach and three for-
mer school administrators of covering
up allegations against Sandusky.
The retired defensive coordinator has
been sentenced to at least 30 years in
prison after being convicted of 45 crimi-
nal counts. Prosecutors said allegations
occurred off and on campus, including
the football facility.
On July 22, Penn State removed
Paternos statue, which had been a gath-
ering point for mourners last January.
The next day, the NCAA reacted with
uncharacteristic swiftness in levying
strict sanctions including a four-year
bowl ban, strict scholarship cuts and a
$60 million fine.
Paterno was also stripped of 111 vic-
tories, meaning he no longer held the
major college record of 409 career wins.
Paternos family and the three admin-
istrators have vehemently denied Freehs
allegations, along with denying suspi-
cions they took part in a cover-up. Also,
Paternos family has been planning what
a spokesman has called a comprehensive
response to Freehs findings.
But on Tuesday, the family was expect-
ed to remain in privacy. A delivery man
dropped off flowers at the Paternos
modest ranch home in the afternoon,
walking past a sign staked to the snow-
covered lawn.
The sign read in part, Thank you Joe!
Thank you Sue!, referring to Paternos
widow. RIP JoePa ... 409 forever.
Another sign posted near Paternos grave
read Joe Paterno. Penn States Spirit in
the Sky.
Hamms friend, fellow freshman Nick
Bucci, said he felt his school handled the
scandal well overall, given the extent of
the fallout, with some exceptions.
At some point, Bucci said, the school
should honor Paterno. He referred to
one suggestion that dated back years
before Paternos death, of naming the
field at the stadium after the coach.
But Bucci advocated for perspective.
A day like today, those emotions
might be high, said Bucci, of Dayton,
Md. I dont think now is the time to do
it. I think you have to wait.

Releford already had plenty on his
plate guarding Rodney McGruder
in the Sunflower Showdown on
Tuesday.
And with his struggle on offense,
especially from three-point range,
that wasnt his main priority.
Turns out the senior guard
from Kansas City, Mo., found his
rhythm with two early 3-pointers
that helped him lead Kansas to its
59-55 win over K-State.
I thought Trav played unbe-
lievable, Kansas coach Bill Self
said. One of the better games hes
played for us.
However, even with a team-high
of 12 points, Relefords main focus
remained McGruder, who he held
to only two points in the opening
20 minutes of the game.
The first half I thought I did
real well making him uncomfort-
able and not letting him get easy
looks, Releford said.
McGruder did warm up in
the second half, finishing with 13
points. It was, however, still under
his season average of 15.5 points.
Trav did a tremendous job and
he definitely did what he needed to
do for us to win the game, sopho-
more guard Naadir Tharpe said.
Tharpe also had a big moment
during the game of his own. With
22.6 seconds left in the game,
Tharpe calmly walked to the
free throw line and nailed both
of his free throws, extending the
Jayhawks lead to 58-53 and out of
reach of the Wildcats.
I just focused and knocked
them down, Tharpe said.
Tharpe has become a major
player off the bench the past few
games and appears to have moved
into an established role in the
game.
He finished the game with six
points and two assists.
One of the major factors for
the Jayhawks was the physical play
inside by both senior center Jeff
Withey and senior forward Kevin
Young.
At seven feet tall, Withey always
draws a lot of attention, but last
night he faced a pair of tough play-
ers in the Wildcats sophomore
Thomas Gipson and senior Jordan
Henriquez.
Although Withey managed
to get his seventh double-double
of the season (11 points and 10
rebounds), it was the first game
this season he did not record a
block.
More than anything Withey was
just happy for a good win after a
difficult battle against the in-state
rival.
It was definitely a physical
game, thats how the Big 12 is,
everywhere you go you get elbows
in the back, Withey said. Im used
to it and Kevins used to it.
Young also managed to make
a pivotal play as he dumped in a
layup before the half, extending
Kansas lead to 31-27.
Those are plays that end up
being the difference in winning
and not winning, Self said.
More importantly this game
made it the 20th win for Bill Self
and his players since he arrived in
Lawrence in 2003.
But this game means a lot to a
senior who will never soak up a
big-time Big 12 road win after this
season.
I havent been here that long,
but Ive inherited the rivalry just
like any other player that comes
through these doors, Young said.
You just take a lot of pride in it.

Defensive back joins
Kansas football team
Kansas coach Charlie Weis announced
Tuesday afternoon that defensive back
Colin spencer has enrolled at the Uni-
versity of Kansas and will participate
in the football teams spring activities.
spencer graduated early from Woodrow
Wilson High school in Dallas, Texas.
spencer, a three-star prospect on
Rivals, scout and esPn, impressed col-
lege coaches and scouts as he had six
interceptions and fve blocked kicks in
his two years of high school.
He is the 11th player to join
the Jayhawk football program
since the 2012 season ended.

Farzin Vousoughian
O
nce again Kansas had to battle
through a prizefght to stay
undefeated in Big 12 play.
Grabbing its 23rd victory in 25 tries
at Bramlage Coliseum, the nine-time
defending champion proved why Kan-
sas is Kansas and Kansas State is still
Kansas State. And with an unexpected
but welcome heavyweight in its corner,
the Jayhawks subjected Wildcat fans to
their own dose of doom.
Afer riding freshman guard Ben
McLemore and senior center Jef
Withey for most of the conference
season, Kansas fnally beneftted from
whats become a tepid source as of late
senior guard Elijah Johnson.
Kansas coach Bill Self employed a
four-guard lineup that featured both
Johnson and sophomore point guard
Naadir Tarpe to help Kansas steal a
victory at Texas on Saturday. He quick-
ly trotted out his two point guards onto
the court as part of his three-guard
lineup at Kansas State Tuesday night.
And Johnson looked like his old
self, the one that shotand hit those
shotswith confdence.
Johnson fnished 1-11 against Texas,
with most of those misses being layups
or short jumpers afer aggressive drives
to the lane. But he hit his frst layup in
Manhattan before four minutes had
elapsed.
It got better from there for Kansas
fans. With Tarpe taking on portions
of the ball-handling responsibilities,
it lef Johnson free to knock down
a 3-pointer. Minutes later, Tarpe
brought the ball up the court and
found Johnson for a cutting layup.
Although these plays simply result-
ed from running the ofense, Johnson
didnt have to look for his points while
also facilitating the ofense. By defer-
ring to Tarpe to bring the ball up the
court and establish the ofense, John-
son slid back into his role from last
year as the Jayhawks two-guard.
Johnson appears to relax when
he doesnt have to bear the ofensive
load while also creating ofensive op-
portunities for his teammates. As the
point guard, its been his job to help
create opportunities for McLemore,
the Jayhawks purest scorer. But when
he shares the foor and the ball with
Tarpe, Johnson returns into his nat-
ural two-guard role, looking for his
shot.
Tink about it. If Kansas didnt have
Tyshawn Taylor running the point last
season, especially during the NCAA
Tournament, would Johnson have
made his clutch three-pointer against
Purdue? He very well may have, but so
far this season, his play suggests that
he plays best when hes part of the of-
fensive fow, not the catalyst for it.
With Bramlage Coliseum amped up
for the showdown between two ranked
teams, Johnsons frst half ofense
helped prevent Kansas States brief run
from turning into an all-out assault.
And Kansas seemed to beneft
from Johnsons poise, especially when
the game got tight. His ofense took
a backseat in the second half, but his
pesky defense resulted in two steals,
equivalent to gold in this low-scoring
rivalry game.
Self has maintained throughout the
season that Johnson will eventually
start making shots. Johnson shot 3-10
Tuesday night, but they were smarter
shots than hes been taking recently,
and he played within the ofense,
rather than forcing it. Teres no doubt
about Johnsons ability to put his shoes
on. He just shouldnt have to try and
help his teammates put theirs on as
well all night.

both his hands to his lips and blew
multiple kisses to the notoriously
boisterous Kansas State student
section. Te kisses were accom-
panied with the kind of beaming
smile that children get as theyre
given a new toy.
And this was Johnsons last time
to get that toy. Te senior won his
third game in four years in Man-
hattan afer the Jayhawks beat the
Kansas State Wildcats 59-55.
Tat kiss felt good, Johnson
said. Tis was a game I always
wanted to play in since I was a
freshman, and this was my year
to actually go out and produce for
our team.
While Johnson didnt have a
particularly efective game ofen-
sivelyshooting 3 of 10 from the
feld, fnishing the game with eight
points and turning the ball over
fve timeshe did score fve of the
Jayhawks frst 15 points, helping
Kansas avoid the slow starts that
have recently plagued them.
Really, no player for the Jay-
hawks was ofensively exceptional.
Tis wasnt that kind of game. Tis
was a battle of two former Illinois
coaches that preach sermons in
sound defense and toughness.
Tats a typical Big Ten game,
Bill Self said.
Te Big Ten conference is
known for playing defensively
oriented, low-scoring basketball.
And Self believes Kansas winning
by playing a game of this style was
important.
My big belief is, youve got to
learn to win games in the 50s, 60s,
70s and 80s, Self said. Youve got
to, and weve been able to accom-
plish that.
While Self was pleased with
the win, the game was a back-
and-forth battle that featured
two teams playing for the pride
of winning the state. With 37 sec-
onds lef, the Jayhawks had only a
3-point lead.
Tats when sophomore point
guard Naadir Tarpe was intro-
duced to the pressures of a big
time, in-state rivalry. Tarpe was
fouled by the Wildcats and sent to
the free-throw line to shoot a one-
and-one.
If he missed, Kansas State
would have a chance to tie the
game. Tey never did, as Tarpe
made both free throws to inch
Kansas toward its victory.
I wasnt nervous at all, Tarpe
said. I just knew I had to take my
time and get the free throws.
Tarpe sealed the win for the
Jayhawks, and helped give the se-
niors their fnal hurrah in a build-
ing that Kansas is known for win-
ning in. Te Jayhawks now have a
23-2 all-time record in Bramlage
Colisuem.
Perhaps thats why it meant
so much to those seniors to beat
Kansas State on the road for their
fnal time like so many Kansas
players before them.
Senior Kevin Young was one of
the frst players of the court afer
the fnal buzzer rang, but he still
heard all about Johnsons post-
game theatrics.
Tey told me about it going
into the locker room, Young said.
Teyve been here longer than
me. It means a lot more to them.
Yes, Johnson was the Jayhawk
who so badly wanted to beat Kan-
sas State one last time on the road.
Perhaps he wanted the win so bad
because it gave the Jayhawks the
frst place spot in the Big 12 stand-
ings at 5-0. Or perhaps its because
he knows hes taking his last tour
of Big 12 road venues.
Either way, Johnsons kiss
goodbye wasnt just him taunting
the Kansas State crowd. Tere was
a bit of sincerity in his fnal fare-
well.
As crazy and weird as this may
sound, Im going to miss Kansas
State, Johnson said. Its probably
the most fun environment to play
in.
