Well, the
finally happened.
A backflip in Allen Fieldhouse indicated a33-game home winning streak was over. Twodifferent courts stormed by ravenous students.Those brief highlights summarized the typeof week the Kansas Jayhawks have experienced.Team meetings behind closed doors and alate-game defensive switch in Saturday’s loss toOklahoma couldn’t prevent a three-game losingskid that hasn’t been seen since 2005 when theJayhawks lost to Texas Tech, Iowa State andOklahoma.And now, questions continue to surround theKansas squad.A team left blindsided from the unthinkablestreak. A team left hunting to regain itsswagger.The streak has fans searching for the sameKansas team that once beat Ohio State on theroad. Fans look for the same team that once wasNo. 2 in the nation.At this moment, both players and fansstare directly at the possibility of losing fourconsecutive games for the first time since 1988-89, when the Jayhawks lost eight straight.To make matters worse, Kansas will have tobest its perennial annoying sibling to stop thestreak: Kansas State.Yes, Kansas has been dominant against KansasState. The Jayhawks have won 45 of the last 48meetings dating back to the 1994 season.Still, the Jayhawks aren’t in the driver’s seatof the Big 12. Rather, the annoying sibling hastaken hold of the wheel.Unlike Kansas, the Wildcats are quietly on afour-game winning streak. Those victories now have Kansas State on top of the Big 12 standings.More importantly, the Wildcats will most likely be ranked higher than the Jayhawks.Just like a little brother (even thoughKansas State is technically older), Wildcat fansconstantly let the big brother know when they are on top.

Student leaders from the sixKansas Board of Regents schoolswill advocate for students on threemain issues when they meet withstate legislators today. DuringHigher Education Day, 30 sudentsfrom each school, many of whomare members of their student body governments, will meet Kansasleaders in the House and Senateto represent student positions onhigher education funding, tuitionfor undocumented students andconcealed carry on campus.The entire student lobby met lastnight in Woodruff Auditorium tofamiliarize themselves with theirfellow student advocates, positionsthey will advocate and conduct forlobbying, said student body presi-dent Hannah Bolton.“We are just going to try to makeit more of a direct message than ithas been in the past,” Bolton said.While drafting a united studentplatform for the Regents schoolshas been challenging, DarrenBeckham, student legislative direc-tor for Wichita State University,said the lobby will represent allstudents from the Kansas Board of Regents Schools.“The purpose of the day is tomake sure that legislatures hearfrom students and are able to con-nect faces and individuals to theseproblems, as well as understandhow it will better affect Kansas stu-dents’ lives,” Beckham said.
Economic REtuRn and invEstmEnt 
The higher education lobby plans to advocate for continuedfunding of academic institutions.According to a study performed by Goss and Associates, every tax dol-lar spent on the Board of Regentsschools produced an $11.94 eco-nomic return.“The governor is propos-ing a higher education cut ateight percent,” said Zach George,Government Relations Director forthe University. “That is a hugeamount of money, which couldpossibly lead to an increase intuition.”Compared to the national aver-age of $6,290, Kansas spends $4,959per student in higher education.While enrollment in post-sec-ondary education has increasedby more than 10 percent since2006, funding for higher educa-tion institutions has fallen by morethan 15 percent, according to theState Higher Education ExecutiveOfficers.“Our state economy can be athriving one if we have a well-funded higher education systemwithin the state,” George said. “Wewant to make sure we advocate thatthese cuts directly impact studentswho are trying to get a degree.”

A trip to rub elbows with thebiggest names in the music indus-try was not what Shelby Lewis hadexpected when she first pluckedher harp.Lewis, a freshman from KansasCity, Mo. studying music educa-tion, was one of a handful of stu-dent musicians selected to attendthe Grammys on an all-expenses-paid trip this weekend. The floorlevel was reserved for the famousfaces: Taylor Swift, Adele, Beyoncé.Lewis sat directly above them, in asuite box in the middle of the mez-zanine, rubbing elbows with musicproducers and businessmen, at the2013 Grammy Awards last night.“The biggest dream I ever hadin my life is about to come true,”Lewis said a few days before herpre-paid flight to Los Angeles.Out of several hundred appli-cants, Lewis and 24 other stu-dents from the Kansas City metroarea were selected to participatein the Grammy Museum’s MusicRevolution Project last summer, amonth-long pilot program head-ed by Bob Santelli, the executivedirector of the Grammy Museumin LA. At an event publicizingtheir collaborative CD release andthe Grammy Museum Experienceat the Sprint Center, the presidentand CEO of the world’s largestentertainment company asked thestudents if they’d like a trip to LAto watch the Grammy Awards inperson.Lewis heard about the oppor-tunity through a newsletter fromthe Kauffman Center for thePerforming Arts in Kansas City,Mo. She mailed in an auditiontape showcasing her breadth withthe harp: a classical sonata and aninstrumental adaptation of “YourSong” by Elton John.While she normally plays classi-cal harp, Lewis likes to experimentby covering a wide range of artists,from The Beatles to Lady Gaga’s“Telephone.” Recently, she’s takento singing while playing jazz.In high school, Lewis wouldcome home from school to play Grace, her six-foot-tall Venusharp, and pluck comfortably atits 46 strings, keeping differentrhythms with each hand, workingits six peddles with both feet andchatting conversationally with hermother Maria.“It always came very naturally for her,” her mother said.Lewis’s parents had her peggedto become a musician since shewas a baby. When she was threeyears old, her mom took her tosee the Kansas City Ballet’s annualperformance of “The Nutcracker.”To explain where the music camefrom, Maria took Shelby down toinspect the orchestra pit at inter-mission. The harpist found herself confronted by a curious three-year-old loaded with questions aboutthe rare stringed instrument.That curiosity led to a passionfor music. Lewis began private les-sons for the harp at the age of eightand has since taken up the violin,piano and choir.That fluidity was put to good useat the Music Revolution Project.From 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. every weekday for a month in summer of 2012, Lewis and her peers heard amusic history lecture on a differentgenre of music each week. They learned about how genres evolvedand what events inspired themand helped them to develop. Thestudents would then form smallgroups and composed a song foran artist of each genre.Lewis, a classically trained harp-ist, would be mixed together withmusical theater performers, acountry guitarist, an opera singeror DJs to write songs inspired by hip-hop, blues, jazz and rock.“Figuring out how to mix DJbeats into country was weird —it was hard,” Lewis said. “It wasa very good learning experiencemusically and really stretches yourcreative mind.At the end of the Project, thegroup selected 11 of its best songsto record, then debuted its work atthe Kauffman Center to an audi-ence of around 250 people.“It was awesome to be grantedthat opportunity to perform whereall of these big names have been,”Lewis said. “For a high schoolerfrom the middle of the Kansas City suburbs to get this opportunity todo this, that was cool. I think wewere all kind of blown away by thiswhole thing.”Lewis sat at her harp and sang vocals to an Amy Winehouse-inspired track on the same stagethat Patti LuPone and ArethaFranklin have performed on with-in the past two years. The debutconcert was a cathartic end to ademanding and rewarding experi-ence. Until October.Lewis and eight other studentswere asked to return to KansasCity to talk to the media andadvertise the Project and the recentopening of the Grammy MuseumExperience at the Sprint Center.Deep in the basement of theSprint Center, Lewis was catch-ing up with her fellow teenagemusicians over a breakfast spreadwhen a posh man in a suit — TimLeiweke, the President and CEOof Anschutz Entertainment Group— walked in, and asked if they hadpreviously been to the Grammy Awards. He offered them an all-expenses-paid trip to the awardsand to visit the Grammy Museumand other attractions, tour LosAngeles and stay in the same hotelas the stars.Lewis couldn’t contain herexcitement.“Who does that?” Lewis asked.“Who says, ‘Yes, you suburbanchildren from the Midwest, cometo California and attend the big-gest night in music?’”

students from receiving tuitionis stalled in the Kansas House of Representatives, it is anticipated tobe debated once more during thissession of the Kansas Legislature.The proposed measure woulddouble tuition for these students,affecting approximately 600 Kansasstudents.“The stance that we have is thatthese students want to participatein the economy by getting theirdegree and participate in society,”George said. “We should make iteasier for them because we know that people who do not have a col-lege degree increase their chancesof being in poverty or getting intocrime.”
ConCealed Carry on Campus 
With the likelihood of legisla-tion being introduced to allow con-cealed carry weapons on the cam-pus of Kansas schools this session,Bolton said the student lobby willadvocate against such measures.While University police and faculty are opposed to conceal carry oncampus, Bolton said the primary reason for lobbying on this issuewas to represent current University policy prohibiting students carry-ing weapons on campus. StudentSenate passed a resolution oppos-ing concealed and carry on campuson Feb. 6.“There wasn’t a huge oppositionin our stance to oppose it,” Boltonsaid.

She has spent the weekend bal-ancing social networking, experi-encing the major LA attractions andembracing the music industry.“It makes me happy to play it andhappy to produce this thing thatgets to people without using words,”Lewis said.For Lewis, the future holds acareer devoted to music — maybewith a position at an interac-tive learning experience like theGrammy Museum or maybe as amusic teacher.“I called my music teacher fromelementary school when I got invit-ed to the Grammys and thankedher,” Shelby said. “I hadn’t talked toher in about 10 years, but I calledher and thanked her because Iremember taking choir and playingrecorders and I thought it was thecoolest thing in elementary school.She made it fun.”Lewis thinks it’s important to fos-ter fine arts programs in schools togive kids a creative outlet.In the meantime, she’s enjoyingher opportunity to explore music.“These people from Californiaare giving suburban Missourians achance at something so great andreally want to foster that and pro-mote that we are a city of importantthings,” Lewis said. “Especially withthe building of the Kauffman Centerand the Sprint Center, Kansas City is getting back on the map. Andhopefully this program will put usback on the music map.”

While standing in front of arock wall and looking up, the goalof climbing to the top can seemdaunting, if not a bit impossible.It’s not an easy or a quick task, butas he reaches and moves higherwith each step, the vision of the topbecomes closer and clearer.As a rock-climbing enthusiast,Matthew Koontz has experiencedthis numerous times. Now, it is adifferent kind of wall he is scaling.Koontz, a senior from OverlandPark, was hit by a truck while bik-ing across the intersection of IowaStreet and Harvard Road Jan. 29.He broke his sternum, arm, and allof the ribs on his left side as well asa couple on his right. He also hadbleeding in his brain behind hisfrontal lobe and had an emergency splenectomy while in the hospital.Although he won’t be able toreturn to rock climbing soon,Koontz is beginning his “climb”of recovery. This time, the goals atthe top are graduating in May withmajors in business administrationand anthropology and returning toa life of traveling and rock climb-ing.
a reCovery “BiBle” 
Koontz is not alone in his jour-ney. Through a Facebook groupnamed “Forever Strong: MattKoontz Recovery Bible,” his friendsand family have been able to con-tribute stories, pictures and wordsof encouragement for him.Lawrence senior Camille Fittell,a fellow rock climber and closefriend of Koontz , compiled theentries in a binder and deliveredit to Koontz before he returned tohis home on Feb. 4. After witness-ing her mother go through a kneereplacement surgery and therapy,she wanted to offer the same sup-port to Koontz.“We can’t all see him every day asmuch as we would love to, but wewant him to know that every day of recovery we’re thinking about himand we’re ready for him to get back out and climb again,” Fittell said.Matt’s parents Mike and PamKoontz said the outlet of supporthas been helpful in the recovery process.“It gives him a lot of energy toknow everyone’s behind him andhe’s not doing this by himself,”Mike said.“We try to surround him withthings that make him happy,” Pamsaid. “We really appreciate all thework and all the help that peoplewent through to bring him goodthoughts and good prayers.”
Working ToWard The fuTure 
Koontz doesn’t want his acci-dent to define his future, and heis determined to not let it hinderhim in his goal of graduating infour years.“As long as his spirits are stayinghigh, he really wants to accomplishthat goal,” Pam said.His friends and family saidKoontz has always been a hardworker when it comes to educa-tion. Fittell said that Koontz wouldoften mix climbing with home-work, trading off between slack lining and writing a paragraph of a paper.Koontz will work with theUniversity to make sure he cangraduate on time. The deanof the School of Business, NeeliBendapudi, visited Koontz in thehospital and will continue to work with him while he finishes hisrequirements.Overland Park senior JosieHarmon, a member of theUndergraduate Anthropology Association, said the departmentof anthropology will also be closely involved in the process.“Once he gets better, they’regoing to help him 100 percent todo whatever he’s got to do so he cangraduate this semester,” Harmonsaid.
posiTiviTy and sTrengTh 
Through the rock climbing club,climbing has become more than ahobby for Matt. He regularly trav-els and climbs with his friends.Erin Eifler, a senior fromLawrence, remembers the firstclimbing trip she went on withKoontz.“I was completely new and Ididn’t know anybody, and Mattspent his entire first day of the trip. . . teaching me how to do stuff.He was so ridiculously patient,”she said. “He didn’t even think twice about spending the wholeday teaching me stuff.”Josie Harmon found out aboutthe accident from Koontz’s motherthe day it happened.“I didn’t realize how bad it really was until I got to the hospital thenext day and he was maybe twohours out of conscious. He wasalready laughing and smiling andfully aware,” she said.His friends believe that Koontz’spositive attitude will enable himto make it through the recovery process.“He’s super strong. I feel like thatdude can do anything,” Harmonsaid. “He’s overcome so much inhis life.”
