Could Kansas State's Martin top USC's list as Horn's replacement? - Greenville News

Sun, Mar 25, 2012
That might be the case with Martin and Hyman is surely researching all of the stories, like the one from the Topeka Capital-Journal last week when Kansas State’s athletic director suspended Jamar Samuels minutes before the Wildcats’ game against Syracuse: (Page 3 of 3) “Malone, reached Saturday by phone, acknowledged sending money to Samuels before the NCAA Tournament,” the Capital-Journal story reported, “but maintained the financial assistance didn’t constitute an impermissible benefit because of his pre-existing relationship with Samuels and his mother. “Are you talking about me helping a kid who has been at my program, been in Kansas for four years, whenever he’s needed help, his mom has needed me to help?” Malone said. “We are very, very close, like our families and everything. Is that a benefit?” At Kansas State, pressed against a tournament game, they decided to play it safe, Syracuse won and after the game Martin was emotional, taking a very long pause when asked about Samuels before saying only, “He’s our toughest kid.” He was also a fifth year senior who came to the arena not realizing he had already played his last game. Look carefully, Eric Hyman, this is a coach who can transform the basketball program at Carolina, in a good way. Players love him, opponents detest him and, by the way, in his four years at Kansas State his program has the highest graduation rate in the Big-12 according to the Omaha World-Herald. Some risk? Sure, there’s some risk but for a diligent athletics director, the risk doesn’t appear to be a serious concern. And by the way, isn’t there always a risk in trying to make something out of nothing? Isn’t not taking risks how you ended up looking for a new coach in the first place? ...

The Star's Top 100 Books of 2011 - Kansas City Star

Wed, Dec 7, 2011
Leaving the Atocha Station,” by Ben Lerner (Coffee House Press). In this original, funny and shrewd first novel by a Topeka native, a young protagonist, in Madrid at the time of the 2004 bombings, has difficulty expressing himself in Spanish or English and questions his own authenticity. •  “Lost Memory of Skin,” by Russell Banks (Ecco). Banks (“The Sweet Hereafter,” “Cloudsplitter”) presents an audacious hurricane of a novel set in urban and primeval Florida that revolves around the Kid (a hapless, homeless, 22-year-old sex offender) and the Professor (an enormous, enigmatic sociologist). Banks strips to the ground our understanding of delusion, stigmatism, injustice and life’s infinite wildness. •  “Luminarium,” by Alex Shakar (Soho). Shakar brings a host of profound concerns to this inventive, metaphysical, funny and caring novel set in post-9/11 New York City, ground zero for moral and spiritual paradoxes, in which one twin brother is in a coma and the other is desperately seeking healing and direction as the virtual world they worked so hard to create is commandeered by the “military-entertainment complex.” •  “The Marriage Plot,” Jeffrey Eugenides (Farrar, Straus and Giroux). At Brown University in the early 1980s, two very different young men vie for the attention of a female student whose personal life mirrors the plotlines found in the 19th century novels she adores. •  “Miss Me When I’m Gone,” by Philip Stephens (Plume). In his debut novel, a Kansas City author uses his gifts as a poet to render a heartbreaking look into a man’s rural Missouri homecoming. •  “The Night Circus,” “The Night Circus,” by Erin Morgenstern (Doubleday). Two young magicians outwit their masters in a captivating, whimsical and much-publicized first novel. Part literary fiction, part fantasy, it turns lush atmosphere into art, despite a shaky, frothy, stock romantic subplot. •  “On Canaan’s Side,” by Sebastian Barry (Viking). A woman near the end of her life reflects on the Ireland she was forced to leave, amid violence and brutal politics, and the America she long inhabited. •  “Once Upon a River,” by Bonnie Jo Campbell (Norton). Invoking the spirit of Huck Finn and the skill of Annie Oakley, this stark coming-of-age tale sets 16-year-old Margo Crane adrift with little more than her wits and her rifle on an innocence-wrecking goose chase to find her wayward mother. •  “Open City,” by Teju Cole (Random House). During a series of long walks and other outings in Manhattan, an introspective medical student reflects on his adopted home city, personal relationships, familial bonds, chance encounters, art, death and politics. •  “Orientation,” by Daniel Orozco (Faber & Faber). This collection of short stories offers a wry, comical look at office life and the work world and leaves no desk or cubicle unscathed. •  “The Outlaw Album,” by Daniel Woodrell (Little, Brown). After reading the first sentence of “The Echo of Neighborly Bones,” the first story included in this collection — “Once Boshell finally killed his neighbor he couldn’t seem to quit killing him” — there’s no choice but to keep reading. •  “The Pale King,” by David Foster Wallace (Little, Brown). Certainly not the most fully realized novel of the year, but this posthumously published tale of taxes and boredom boasts more than a few flashes of ingenuity. •  “Ready Player One,” by Ernest Cline (Crown). In 2044, living online is as dangerous as the real world. Teen Wade Watts participates in an online quest for a vast fortune, but the hit points are real, and there are no extra lives to bank on. •  span cla...

Steve Jobs Funeral Held in Private to Avoid Protests by Church? - Christian Post

Thu, Oct 20, 2011
The location of the funeral was not disclosed perhaps due to the possibility of protests by the Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, Kansas, which had announced that it was planning to picket the funeral. “THANK GOD! Steve Jobs is dead! Westboro will picket his funeral!” said the WBC Blogs which is linked to the church’s website. The church also sent messages via Twitter for iPhone. Westboro is a small church, made up of family members of leader Fred Phelps, notorious for picketing funerals and desecrating the American flag. It made headlines in 1998, when it picketed the funeral of Matthew Shepard, a young man from Wyoming who was beaten to death by two men because of his homosexuality. While the people, governments and silicon companies around the world paid tribute to Jobs after he died in his home Wednesday, the church’s blog held him responsible for gay marriage. “Westboro will picket his funeral. He had a huge platform; gave God no glory & taught sin,” Margie Phelps, daughter of the church’s founder, tweeted Wednesday night on her iPhone. Phelps is the lawyer who represented the church’s First Amendment case last year at the Supreme Court. Like us on Facebook In contrast, Dr. Mic...
