Despite split, redistricting approved

By Joe Warren Atchison Globe

Atchison County Commissioners bypassed a bipartisan plan to restructure commission districts Wednesday, but did settle on a map that ensures representation from both inside and outside Atchison city limits. However, there was some oppo-

sition. A t c h i s o n County Commission chair Jeff Schuele, who represents District One, did not support the plan that was adopted 2-1, saying he preferred a plan that had been agreed upon by both Republican

county head Derek Franklin, and Democratic county leader Elizabeth Lane. “I thought that since they put the time and effort into it, we should go with them,” Schuele said. Commissioner Bill Pohl disagreed. He made the motion to accept the winning proposal, saying that his biggest concern was

representation inside and outside the city of Atchison. “It guarantees the city one commissioner, it guarantees the rural people one commissioner and the other could go either way,” Pohl said. “(The other proposals) could have had three commissioners from the city, or three from the rural areas.” Currently the city accounts for

Packers and the king

By ADAM GARDNER Atchison Globe

From rainy Oregon to the hills of Atchison – with a pit stop in southeast Kansas sandwiched in between – Becky Anderson has settled in quite nicely. The Salem, Ore. native has been in Atchison since August of 2012 after being named the city’s first ever finance director/ assistant city manager, filling the vacant finance director position Mandy Cawby left behind. Since then, she has had to learn that she isn’t responsible for every department like she was in her previous position as a city administrator in Cherryvale. “It’s funny,” she explained, “it was an adjustment because in Cherryvale I was doing everything. There’s no staff, so you’re doing everything. That was kind of an adjustment to let go of things; not

Surprises – good surprises – keep rolling in for John Shankman. The die-hard Green Bay Packers fan who was injured in a car accident in mid-March received some special gifts from the organization. According to Kim Shankman’s Facebook page – John’s mother – a family John friend wrote to the Packers Shankman informing them of the accident and how big of a fan John is of the Packers. In response, the Packers sent John a care package that included a football signed by the team, pictures, a blanket, and a get-well card signed by quarterback Aaron Rodgers. That wasn’t the end of the surprises, however, as Shankman was named the 2013 Maur Hill-Mount Academy Prom King by his classmates. Some of John’s friends wore their tuxedos to deliver the crown to him the next morning. Please see KING/Page 5

Bond issues change future of education By KATY MOORE ❙ Atchison Globe

After the successful passing of Atchison Public Schools’ bond extension election in November 2012, two area districts are now sharing in the growing excitement. Both USD 339 -– Jefferson County North – and Buchanan County R-IV School District, Rushville, Mo., celebrated overwhelming victories as the vast majority of voters approved their separate bond proposals during the April election. USD 339, which is split between the elementary/middle school in Nortonville, and the high school and district office in Winchester, will receive numerous upgrades through its new bond – needs the district has had for years, and will finally be able to fulfill. “We had a heavy needs list and a want list,” USD 339 Superintendent Denise Jennings said. “The wants went right away, and we backed off on some needs. We focused on true needs, to be financially good stewards Please see FUTURE/Page 2

They want to know that whatever we do is responsible and mindful of the taxpayer.” Wiseman explained that surfacing out of the numerous problems facing district buildings are a couple major time bombs – a deteriorating fitness facility, and a 100-year old elementary school needing crucial pipe and boiler replacements. The pipes and boiler at the elementary school have created such a problem, Wiseman said, that it’s difficult for teachers to keep the focus on academics during class time. He explained the situation as he witnessed it first-hand while touring the facility this past year. “When it’s 20 degrees outside, for example,” he began, “the steam heat depending on which room you’re in - can get so hot, even with the valves turned off, the teacher has the window open and a fan blowing to regulate the heat. “Nobody believed that until the tour of the facilities planning team.” After hiring HTK Architects to assist administrators in devising a financial facilities plan, board members learned that it would cost $2.5 million to upgrade the heating and air conditioning systems alone. That, Wiseman said, began the

discussion of whether the 100-year old facility was worth upgrading, or if they should consider building new. HTK representatives created three rough draft options for board members to mull. Option one includes renovations to the elementary school to replace mechanical, electrical and plumbing, add classrooms and an office suite. This option would also feature a new multipurpose room addition on the junior/ senior high school to ease crowding, and create a new weightlifting/fitness/physical education center. The addition also includes new locker rooms, which would put a stop to the time-consuming hassle of junior high and senior high students waiting on each other to change clothes before and after P.E. The addition could also be used for junior high breakfast and lunch, hallway lockers, classrooms, and in the evening, wrestling, cheer and dance practices, or community events. Option two proposes a new elementary school for pre-kindergarten through sixth grade, built near the current junior/senior high, with the same multipurpose addition to ACCJSHS. Option three has the same multipurpose room at ACCJSHS, but features a new elementary school with an additional seven classrooms, making room for the seventh and eighth-grad-

ers to move out of the high school completely. All three options would make it possible to also build a more secure entry at the junior/senior high school. Currently, the three options are estimated for a 25-year bond. Option one, at $12.25 million, would be an average mill increase of 14.25 mills, meaning a home worth $100,000 would pay an additional $14 a month, and a $300,000 farm would pay an extra $5.18 a month. Option two, at $14.55 million, would mean a 16.8 mill increase, and option three’s $16.15 million bond would be an 18.65 mill increase. Wiseman said there is still work to be done on all three models, which could change the price tags somewhat, but they still provide the facilities planning committee with a firm idea on what it will ultimately take to upgrade the facilities. Armed with this knowledge, members of the facilities planning committee have been out in the community, talking to patrons and performing surveys on the proposals. Lancaster native Justin Bottorff, project manager at Bottorff Construction – and ACCHS graduate - is leading this charge as the committee’s chairman. The aim is to find out exactly what the district’s community will support come bond election time. “People remember things,” Wiseman said.

“There were problems when they built (the current junior/senior) high school. From the survey comments, it’s clear (patrons) want to make sure it’s not like the high school, not cheap. “They want to build something solid and strong that’s going to last, not something you have to work on two months after moving in.” Response data is compiled after every survey effort and presented to the committee, which will use the results to decide what scenario would work best for the district. “The board has left this up to the planning team, but it’s looking like the (planning) team is going to recommend a bond issue for November,” Wiseman said. “There’s a lot of concern for our schools. One thing we’ve found is that (patrons) want to keep our schools, and feel strongly about that, so we have to make sure that in our planning, whatever we do is long-lasting and is very mindful of our taxpayers.” To review the most upto-date survey results, including personal comments from patrons, visit the district’s website, www.usd377.org. Under the “District” tab, choose “Facilities Planning Team,” and see the list of downloadable documents for the survey and renovation proposals.

Alfrey pleads not guilty to mysterious death By Patty Moore Hiawatha World

Morton D. Alfrey, 51-year-old Highland man charged with two felonies and a misdemeanor in a case involving a suspicious death at his home Jan. 5, pled not guilty to all charges Wednesday in Doniphan County District Court and a jury trial is scheduled for July 8-9. Alfrey was arrested by Highland police on Jan. 23 in connection with the death of John Paul Jenkins, 30, whose body was found on the suspect’s property the night of Jan. 5 by a Highland officer who responded to a call that someone might be dead at the Alfrey home. Felony charges of aggravated intimidation of a witness and of obstruction of justice were filed after Alfrey was booked into jail in Troy, along with misdemeanor unlawful hosting of minors consuming alcoholic beverages. The case stems from what authorities said was a party at the Alfrey residence, where Jenkins and

several minors were alleged to have been present. Alfrey is currently staying in St. Joseph, Mo., free on a $200,000 bond that carries some strict conditions. “He cannot be in Doniphan County, except to see his attorney or for court appearances,” said Doniphan County Sheriff Chad Clary, “and his brother can pick him up and take him to the Highland Care Center to visit his mother.” Clary added that after each trip into Doniphan County, Alfrey must immediately return to St. Joseph. No charges have been filed against anyone in the death of Jenkins, who was also a resident of Highland. Patty Moore can be reached at pattymoore@npgco.com.

Ten rules for planting trees As landscape nurseries fill their lots with trees for spring planting, buyers can prepare themselves to take their purchase home for successful planting. Proper planting will allow for quicker establishment. The things you do wrong while planting may not be able to be corrected later. So those first steps have a big effect on how quickly the tree grows. With spring landscaping season, K-State Research and Extension provide tips on planting trees: ❯ Select the right tree for the home site by choosing trees adapted to specific locations. Consider nuisance fruit or disease-resistant varieties. For example, many crabapple varieties are resistant to apple scab and rust diseases. Keep in mind the mature tree size to ensure enough room. ❯ Keep the tree well watered and in a shady location until planting. When moving the tree, lift it by the root ball or pot and not by the trunk. ❯ Prior to planting, remove all wires, labels, cords or anything else tied to the plant. If left on, they may eventually girdle the tree. ❯ Dig a proper hole. Plant the tree on solid ground, not fill dirt. In

AG News other words, don’t dig the hole too deep and then add soil back to the hole before placing the tree. Make the hole deep enough for the tree to sit slightly above nursery level. The Ray root Ladd flare, or the point where trunk and roots meet, should be visible. The planting hole width should be three times the width of the root ball. Loosening the soil five times the diameter of the root ball will allow faster root spread. ❯ Remove all containers from the root ball. Cut away plastic pots. Roll burlap and wire baskets back into the hole and cut the excess away. If you can remove the wire basket without disturbing the root ball, do it. If roots have been circling around in the container, cut them and spread them out so they do not become girdling roots later in the life of the tree. ❯ Backfill the hole with the same soil that was removed. Amendments such as peat moss likely do more harm than good. Loosen the fill soil to ensure no clods or clumps. Add water to insure good root to soil contact and prevent air pockets. Generally, there is no need to fertilize at planting. ❯ Don’t cut back the branches of a tree after planting except those

that are rubbing or damaged. The leaf buds release a hormone that encourages root growth. If the tree is cut back, the reduced number of leaf buds results in less hormone released and therefore fewer roots being formed. ❯ Water the tree thoroughly and then once a

How fast can I go (and do I need to?)

While the moisture has been welcome, the one thing it has done is slow corn planting progress. Should we be nervous? Probably not – unless we can’t get in to the field until mid-May (not likely). Even so, what about “speeding up” – even just a little – to try and get the crop in the ground in as timely a manner as possible? It might work out for you OK. Multiple studies from various universities over the last 15 years would indicate that though stand variability increases as seed drop accuracy decreases, many times the increased variability/ decreased accuracy results in little yield decline. Does that give you permission to drive as fast as you like? Not so much. If your planting speed affects stand uniformity, you may not see a big problem – as long as the final population is within 15 percent of the desired population. Do what you can to achieve uniform stands, but as long as the typical spacing between plants is within 2 to 3 inches of the desired plant spacing and the final population is not substantially lower than what was desired, the plant will likely compensate appropriately on its own. If the planting speed

affects emergence to the point of delaying emergence within the row, trouble can occur. If one out of six plants is delayed by two leaf stages, yields can be reduced 4 percent. Delay those plants by four leaf stages and yields can be reduced 8 percent. Maybe not much, but it is something to consider. Make sure your planter is well adjusted and operated in the range indicated by the owner’s manual. Oklahoma State Machinery Systems Engineer Randy Taylor suggests a 5-6 mph range. The appropriate speed will no doubt be affected by seed bed conditions, as well as the way the planter is adjust-

WHY DO CATS RUB THEIR FACES?

One very common cat behavior (and one that often baffles owners) is face rubbing. Why is the cat doing it? Does it feel good? Is it a territorial thing? The answer has to do with the nose. Every creature, human or animal, has a unique odor. When all the scents of a family come together, it creates a one-of-a-kind group smell. Cats have scent glands located in various places on their faces and on their bodies. So, when a cat rubs its scent glands on someone, that person is identified as part of the cat’s family. When a human has been out and about accumulating other scents, it is the cat’s job to remark (and reclaim) its human. At WESTSIDE VETERINARY HOSPITAL, we can examine your pet for any discomforts.

Sunny CONTINUED FROM Page 1 being super involved with everything that’s on the commission agenda. “I like where my focus has gone now.” After graduating from Willamette University in Salem, Becky made her way to Kansas. She earned her MBA from Friends University and worked for Coffeyville Community College before taking the position with the city of Cherryvale. While in Cherryvale, she worked with Trey Cocking, who would later come to Atchison as the city manager. Later, Becky took the same path from Cherryvale to Atchison as Trey. The open finance director position wasn’t the first time Atchison showed up on her radar, however. A few years ago when there was an opening for the community development director, Becky contemplated going for the position. “I was at that point maybe a little bit interested in moving on, but I wasn’t quite ready so I ended up not applying for that,” she said. “Then the finance director position came open and I was ready for a change and ready to move on.” Knowing the city manager didn’t mean being hired in Atchison was a slam dunk.

came into the city and 13 phone interviews were done before an interview committee – that did not include Trey Cocking – decided on four people for in-person interviews. At that point, Becky moved to the front of the pack and was offered the job. Home came calling shortly after she took the position in Atchison, though. While applying in Atchison, she also applied for a couple manager positions in Oregon. After being hired, she received a phone call from one of the cities in Oregon for an interview but turned it down in no small part due to the rain. “It’s miserable, it rains all the time,” Becky said of her home state. “It’s why we left Oregon before. (The rain) didn’t bother me growing up because it’s all I knew. It’s not just the rain, it’s cloudy all the time and gray. “As I got older, it started to really bother me. The winter we moved, it had rained 45 days straight.” She certainly appreciates the sunshine and even admitted that she can get in a funk if there are consecutive cloudy days in Atchison. The sunny weather also gives her a chance to run outside and experience the hills of Atchison instead of the monotony of a treadmill. “I ran outside for the first time Sunday, and I had been

running on a treadmill for a couple months, and it was awful,” she said. “I was so sore the next day. You forget how different it is running outside.” When not at work, Becky can be found relaxing at home watching a movie or reading a book with her two feline friends – Frenchy and Monkey Moo Moo – but don’t call her a “crazy cat lady.” She loves dogs, too, but got the cats years ago while living in an apartment that didn’t allow dogs. “People really think I’m obsessed with cats, which is not the case,” she explained. “I just have two cats and I like them.” As for her future in Atchison, Becky says she can see herself being here for a while. “As long as I have a lot of challenges in front of me, I’m usually pretty happy in my career,” she said, admitting that she left Cherryvale partly because she felt she had accomplished all she could there. While she says finance isn’t necessarily a passion, Becky sees it as a means of governing and supplying services to her community, which is what she really enjoys. As long as she enjoys her work and has that feeling of accomplishment, the Oregonian might be a Kansan for a long time.

The iron cut outs and mural will cost $8,308. “Sometime volunteer-led towns need some outside support with ambitious projects,” said Marci Penner, Kansas Sampler Foundation director. “We’re asking for baseball fans, or anyone connected to Kansas or concerned about

rural America to respond with donations or to volunteer. We have a form that outlines all that is needed.” Bob Topping, Lawrence, is the project coordinator and has listed each task and all materials needed on the sign up form.

even if they don’t fish or boat,” said Jessica Howell, Kansas aquatic nuisance species program coordinator. “Zebra mussels will attach themselves to anything below the water line. In addition to damaging boating and fishing equipment, they’ll foul rocky shorelines with their sharp, dime-sized shells, making it hard to walk or wade along the shore. “Also, they can clog water intakes and damage power-generating facilities.” Asian carp can eat up to 40 percent of their body weight each day, competing with native fish for food and threatening the diversity and quality of other aquatic life. When grown, they can weigh up to 100 pounds and can leap out of the wa-

ter when disturbed, posing a physical threat to boaters. To help stop these species from spreading: ❯ Clean, drain and dry boats and equipment after each visit to any lake or river. ❯ Do not move live fish between bodies of water or up streams. ❯ Don’t dump bait in the water or drainage ditches. Instead, discard it on dry land or in an approved receptacle. For more information, visit www.ProtectKSWaters.org.

for the bond to pass, for two reasons. The district was able to take advantage of state aid, which will pay for 53 percent of the bond, leaving taxpayers to pay an actual $1.175 million for the $2.5 million bond. Additionally, the district’s previous bonds are retiring, so taxes will actually decrease from $9.21 a month to $5.61. While the paperwork is being pushed, patrons likely won’t see any changes until this fall, when administrators plan to break ground on the new track. Jennings said a large portion of the indoor work at the high school would be done during the summer to avoid interrupting classes. “We’re pretty excited,” she said. “We tried to aim for needs, but tried to get the most bang for our buck, and I hope that’s what we’re able to do.” Getting a few bucks of their own, the Buchanan County R-IV school district is gearing up to begin renovations with its recently approved $1.65 million bond. Patrons are looking forward to a few major improvements like a new heating and air conditioning system for the middle/ high school in DeKalb, Mo., as well as electrical infrastructure for future HVAC needs at the elementary school in Rushville, Mo. The bond will also cover a new ag shop near the high school, and a new high school music room

retrofit from the current ag shop. The new HVAC system for the middle/high school will work on a ground source system, said District Superintendent Lane Novinger, which uses a series of wells that conduct to the heating units rather than a heat pump, making it much more efficient. Novinger said the improvements will buy the district another 15-20 years of stability in their educational facilities. ‘We’ve been very frugal here,” Novinger commented. “We’ve been able to pay down debt early, and it’s a prime time to borrow money and do construction.” Though there was no Missouri state aid to take advantage of, the district’s bond will not increase taxes for patrons; a factor Novinger thought positively influenced the bond election. “I was quietly optimistic,” he said, “but you don’t know until election day.” He added that just as important was their open door policy, which allows patrons to have a clear line of communication with administrators and staff to address their questions and concerns. After posting information on community boards and hosting public meetings, an 81.6 percent approval rated proved their techniques successful.

CONTINUED FROM Page 1 for the community. “And the community felt like they were actual needs, they were all things the community could shake their head ‘yes’ on.” The most exciting, Jennings said, might be the new track they have planned. The most important, however, could arguably be the upgrades to technology. Jennings explained that a 1-to-1 laptop initiative is in the works for the high school, thanks to the community’s support for the bond, which boasted a 77.3 percent approval rate. Technology will also be added and upgraded at the elementary/middle school, rounding out the district’s needs for keeping up in the digital age. At $2.5 million, the bond will also pay for numerous classroom facelifts, band room renovations, a new fitness room at the high school, and a new kitchen refrigerator and freezer, among other smaller projects. The new track, which will include a new concession stand, locker rooms and restrooms, and handicap-accessible seating, will allow the district to once again host track meets, a prospect that Jennings said pleased staff, students and parents alike.

can be bullying as well, including gossiping or leaving someone out on purpose. “For years people thought bullying was part of growing up,” said Janet Smith of the Leadership Council. “Things have changed. We have more than the verbal and physical bullying. Today there is more relational bullying and cyberbullying is off the charts.” A basic guideline for bullying is described as actions that harm an individual who has difficulty stopping the behavior, and the actions usually occur repeatedly.

Smith said that area schools do an excellent job of educating their students about the effects of bullying, but the community should be involved as well. “Let’s not wait for a tragedy to happen; it is time for action,” she said. Activities at the “Teens Against Bullying” workshop will consist of viewing videos and small group discussions. The videos were chosen from the Pacer’s National Bullying Prevention Center website.

Supreme Court saves our privacy; media sleeps I ’d feared that, after George W. Bush and Dick Cheney and, even worse, Barack Obama, the Fourth Amendment’s protection of our personal privacy had nearly vanished. But on April 17, a majority of the Supreme Court, ruling in Missouri v. McNeely, remembered a fundamental liberty we lost during the British occupation that helped ignite the American Revolution. It should also be noted that the ruling was largely ignored by the pell-mell media in all of its forms. As John W. Whitehead of the Charlottesville, Va.-based Rutherford Institute (“Dedicated to the defense of civil liberties and human rights”) put it in the organization’s news release headlining this vital decision: “Fourth Amendment Victory: Citing Bodily Integrity, U.S. Supreme Court Prohibits Police From Forcibly Taking Warrantless Blood Samples From DUI (driving under the influence) Suspects” (rutherford.org, April 18). Whitehead had also filed an amicus brief before the court on behalf of the defendant in Missouri v. McNeely. Here’s the case: While driving erratically in October 2010, Tyler McNeely was pulled over by a Missouri state highway patrolman, who arrested him on suspicion of drunk driving and took him to a hospital to undergo a blood test for alcohol content. McNeely didn’t want to subject himself to a blood test,

but the officer ignored him and had his blood drawn anyhow. Based on the results of the blood test, McNeely was then charged with driving under the influence. It’s worth noting that Justice Sonia Sotomayor, writing for the majority of the court in upholding McNeely’s refusal to consent, described the forced extraction of a person’s blood as: “An invasion of bodily integrity (that) implicates an individual’s most personal and deep-rooted expectations of privacy.” Crucial to the outcome of this case, as Whitehead emphasizes, is “at no point did the officer attempt to obtain a warrant authorizing the extraction.” As I’ve previously stated, Sotomayor is a valuable addition to our highest court because of her consistent critical thinking. It is quite a contrast from the rigid, self-righteous prejudgments of Justice Samuel Alito. I have her full judgment in this case, and it is illuminating -- not only for legal scholars but also for the citizenry at large – to see how she reached her conclusion, which differs from many drunken driving prosecutions. The Fourth Amendment forbids “unreasonable searches and seizures,” thereby first requiring a warrant from a judge to establish probable cause for a search. Sotomayor points out that there is “expeditious processing of warrant applications, particularly in contexts like

O

pponents of a new law that allows drug testing of Kansans who receive cash assistance or unemployment benefits contend the measure is a punitive one designed to harm the poor and needy. But assigning such a motive to every legislator in the Kansas House and Senate who voted for the drug-testing bill, signed Tuesday by Gov. Sam Brownback, is a stretch, and unfair. The state has legitimate reasons for trying to ensure the money it transfers to people through the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families program operated by the Kansas Department for Children and Families is used for its intended purpose, and that isn’t to purchase illegal drugs or use prescription

Drug testing law is reasonable drugs illegally. The law places no burden on those receiving cash assistance that most Kansans don’t encounter when they apply for a job. Most employers across the state require job applicants to pass a pre-employment drug test. Many of them also have written policies that allow them to further test employees at random or for cause. A lot of companies also require employees who file workers compensation claims to take a drug test. Those tests aren’t punitive, they are just sound business practices. Just as employers have a vested interest in knowing their employees aren’t under the influence of illegal drugs or controlled substances when they report to work each day, the state has a vest-

ed interest in knowing the people they are trying to help aren’t using drugs illegally. Any TANF recipient who is using drugs wouldn’t be able to pass a pre-employment test or secure a job that would eliminate the need for public assistance. Under the law, which also applies to those collecting unemployment benefits, testing will begin Jan. 1 and anyone who fails a drug test will be required to complete a substance abuse treatment program and a job skills course. Anyone failing a second drug test will lose cash or unemployment benefits for 12 months and will be required to complete another treatment and job skills program. A third failed test would result in a permanent loss of benefits. In cases that involve families,

children will continue to receive benefits if a parent or guardian fails a drug test, although the child’s benefits would be handled by a drug-free third party. Refusing to punish children for the lapses of their parents is an essential part of the law. State officials says testing will occur whenever there is reasonable suspicion someone is using a controlled substance. A legislator who championed the bill estimates that about 8 percent of TANF participants will be tested, based on results of a preliminary assessment administered to applicants. That doesn’t sound like a witch hunt, and the state has an obvious interest in ensuring those receiving temporary help are able to seek and find employment. The Topeka Capital-Journal

Paul Ryan the Wrong Choice for Benedictine Commencement Dear President Minnis, We are alumni and friends of Benedictine College who believe that the selection of Paul Ryan as commencement speaker sends the wrong message because Ryan’s politics are so far out of line with Catholic teaching. You said “Paul Ryan is a great family man” but his policies are very harmful to millions of other American families. Ryan’s budget will seriously reduce the significant and necessary role played by the government in the lives of Americans in need. On April 17, 2012 the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops said that Ryan’s budget “fails to meet the moral criteria” of protecting the poor. On March 18, 2013 the U.S. bishops said “We offer the following timeless moral criteria to guide difficult budgetary choices: 1. Every budget decision should be assessed by whether it protects or threatens human life and dignity. 2. A central moral measure of any budget proposal is how it affects ‘the least of these” (Matthew 25). The needs of those who are hungry and homeless, without work or in poverty should come first. 3. Government and other institutions have a shared responsibility to promote the common good of all, especially ordinary workers and families who struggle to live in dignity in difficult economic times.” Ryan has supported tax cuts for the wealthy and increased military spending while holding the rest of the budget the same. Numerous independent analyses have concluded that his budget plans leave less for social programs. Ryan has claimed for years that his philosophy is based on the philosophy of Ayn Rand who actually believed that being unselfish and helping others was immoral. It was only moral to be selfish. Throughout her career Rand was openly hostile to religion and the needy. In her novel, Atlas Shrugged, Rand divided society into “makers and takers.” Millionaire businessmen were the heroes and the poor were parasites. Rand strongly opposed government programs to help the poor. In 2011 Ryan said “We’re getting toward a society where we have a net majority of takers versus makers” explicitly echoing Rand’s words. Ryan even requires his staff to read Atlas Shrugged and gave the book as Christmas gifts. Imagine a Catholic giving a book for Christmas that was written purposefully against religion. While strongly opposing government involvement in society Ryan and Rand both personally benefited from government programs. Rand argued strenuously against Social Security but applied for and received her monthly checks until she died. After Ryan’s father died Ryan’s mother received money from the Social Security Survivor Benefits Program until Ryan was 18. His Social Security benefits were placed in savings to help finance his college education. Yet Ryan now wants to weaken Social Security. He used government student loans to finance college but now he wants to make it more difficult for students to qualify for Pell grants which would force more students into loans. And Ryan has opposed maintaining the current 3.4 percent student loan interest rate; he wants to double the student loan rate to 6.8 percent. Congressman Ryan has never held a full-time job in the private sector. His only work experience consisted of several part-time jobs as a teen. Ryan was a Congressional staffer before entering Congress at age 28. He currently earns $174,000 a year. After 5 years Ryan qualified for a lifetime government pension that he can get at age 50. And Ryan will also receive Social Security benefits at retirement. The government pays a large amount of the health care insurance costs for Ryan’s family. And even though Ryan called the stimulus bill to fight the recession a “wasteful spending spree” he lobbied for millions of Federal stimulus dollars for his state. President Minnis, the Ryan budget proposes cuts in several government programs that directly affect your students. According to the Benedictine College website, 100% of the students receive grants with Federal Pell grants ranging from $555 to $5550, depending on income. Seventy-three percent of students take out loans. The average loan is $5,801 and the primary source of loans is the Federal Student Loan Program. Your college receives hundreds of thousands of dollars annually from the Federal government yet you invite a speaker who wants to seriously reduce the programs from which the majority of Benedictine College students benefit and from which Paul Ryan personally benefitted. Actually, what person in the United States hasn’t benefited from government programs from Head Start to student loans to Medicare and Social Security? Ryan is proposing cuts to Medicare even though he was thankful for how it helped his grandmother who had Alzheimer’s. The problems of the poor today are too large for individuals or private institutions to handle. The national community through the government must play a major role and we all must pay our fair share. Catholic Charities in 2010 received $2.9 billion from the federal government, 62 percent of its entire budget, and certainly could have used more either from individuals or government. We strongly believe that the selection of Ryan sends the wrong message to Benedictine College students and to the Atchison community. A speaker at Benedictine’s commencement should not be so wholly in opposition to the teachings of Saint Benedict. From chapter 4 of the Rule of Benedict “First of all, love the Lord God with your whole heart, your whole soul and all your strength, and love your neighbor as yourself… You must relieve the lot of the poor, clothe the naked, visit the sick.” We believe that a more appropriate speaker should be chosen. We know that, if asked, there are many people who will make recommendations. An excellent alternative was recently recommended by a Benedictine alumna in The Circuit, the college newspaper. Sister Simone Campbell represents a Catholic perspective that seems to be unwelcome at Benedictine College. Her passionate fight for social justice and her organization of Nuns on the Bus was a powerful response to Ryan’s budget and its cruel cuts in many social programs. Sister Simone Campbell, and others like her who adhere to the bishops’ moral criteria and the Rule of Benedict, would be a more suitable Benedictine commencement speaker than Representative Ryan. Concerned alumni and friends of Atchison Benedictines

Minnis Change.org. Petition Comments

Janelle Lazzo, Roeland Park, KS 1956 I don’t think Paul Ryan reflects the values I was taught at Mount St. Scholastica nor do his political views on fiscal matters and who they affect reflect the gospel. His policies penalize the poor and unfairly reward the rich. Anne Elias McNulty, Chicago, Il 1967 I am proud of my 16 years of Benedictine education, including 4 years at Mount St. Scholastica College, now BC. Paul Ryan holds values contrary, not only to the Gospel, but also to the spirit and values of the Benedictines who taught me. Gary Burkart, Atchison, KS 1965 We have emphasized in recent time and recent commencement speakers who we say represent Catholic teachings, usually interpreted as pre-birth life issues. We should be telling the world that we are consistent with the “seamless garment” of life issues after birth also. Mr. Ryan does not represent the rich, fullness of Catholic social teaching with respect to these issues and should not be brought to Benedictine College simply because of his emphasis on only one part of our Catholic heritage. Kathleen Tomei, Overland Park, KS His budget does not uphold Christian values. He should know that. He gets plenty from the government but looks down on people who really need it. Karen Stigers, Kansas City, KS Of all the people in this country to speak at your college’s commencement, I can’t think of a worse one. His budget was condemned by the Church hierarchy and the Nuns on the Bus traveled half way across the country in protest. He is a terrible example of Catholic social justice. Please reconsider your choice. Tom Blake, Kansas City, MO The Catholic Church teaches justice and charity. Ryan stands for many things Catholic, but he does not take a stand to help the poor which is what Christ is all about. Listen to the Pope on being a church for the poor. Kathy Vader, Minnetonka, MN 1956 Pope Francis gives us a strong message about ministering to the poor and disenfranchised. Paul Ryan’s agenda is in total opposition to this.. Elizabeth Waterbury Warrensburg, MO 2010 . . . It is astounding that in such an economically fractured town as Atchison, and at an institution rooted in Catholic social teaching, the political figure head of Social Darwinism would be welcomed. . . . Charles Elias, Atchison, KS 1965 U.S. Representative Paul Ryan as BC commencement speaker is an affront to BC students, BC alumni, Benedictine nuns and priests, friends of Benedictines, the people of Atchison, the National Conference of Catholic Bishops, the Rule of Benedict and, actually, to all people who believe that we must help each other. Terrance D. Mulcare, Leavenworth, KS The man seems to have no sense of the gospel, scripture or Church’s social teaching. Not a good choice for a commencement speaker at a Catholic college. John Elias, Denver, CO 1997 I agree that Rep. Ryan’s public statements and policy positions are not in keeping with the mission of Benedictine College or the teachings of Saint Benedict. President Minnis should reconsider his choice. Daniel Brennan, Topeka, KS I understand that as President of a college you are quite removed from the daily travails of the poor. But they live among us. And we must recognize their suffering and do what we can to alleviate their pain and sorrow. Our Lord wishes that for us. (Paid Advertisement) 40203921

(Minnis Change.org. Petition Comments Continued)

Larry Shepard, Lenexa, KS - As a Catholic, I am tired of Catholic institutions acting on the wrong side of the teachings of Christ and his apostles. Mike O’Hare, Atchison, KS- Paul Ryan is inappropriate for a Catholic college. Delora Musslin, Olathe, KS - I want someone who is pro- life in all aspects! We have to be able to take care of those in need and Paul Ryan does not promote that. Mark Desetti, Lawrence, KS - Being anti-abortion and saying you are Catholic does not make it so. Ryan’s callous attitude toward the poor and working men and women put the lie to his Catholic “faith.” Paula Frost, Olathe, KS The poor, elderly, and college students cannot afford any more budget cuts. The only reason colleges use these big name politicians is for media publicity. I am sure the college could find someone who is not a rich politician who doesn’t know what it is like to go hungry, or to be elderly and have to decide to buy food or their medicine on social security, or being a college student struggling to better themselves in the world but . . . Carl Koch, LaCrosse, WI President Dwight Eisenhower remarked, “Should any political party attempt to abolish social security, unemployment insurance and eliminate labor laws and farm programs you would not hear of that party again in our political history. There is a tiny splinter group, of course, that believes you can do these things. Their number is negligible and they are stupid.” Such stupidity has gone mainstream with Ryan. . . ( His) budget (is) formed out of atheist Ayn Rand’s “selfishness” philosophy that Ryan makes all his staff adhere to. Linda Serafini-Gale Lebanon, PA - Rep. Paul Ryan claims to be Catholic, but has not internalized the teachings of Christ Jesus or the Catholic Church. Alex Prentice, Warrensburg, MO 2010 I do not feel that Rep. Paul Ryan represents the whole of Benedictine College. What is the purpose of sending missions to impoverished nations and in glorifying a man whose policies would create similar poverty at home. Linda Neville, Overland Park, KS - Ryan’s immoral agenda is a disgrace to the nation and he should not be allowed to spread his anti-Christian values to graduating students of Benedictine College. Please join our rally protesting his agenda and speaking at the College. Sharon Reilly Ames, IA 1989 …I believe that Paul Ryan is anti-family and anti-American in his policies and plans. I do not want him to send a message to students that it is okay to be so anti-abortion that you become anti-the-rest-of-life. Poor people need our love and support, not just through charity and service but through policy and opportunity. Jan Schwartzendruber, Hesston, KS The Bible strongly emphasizes that those who love God tend the needs of the poor. Paul Ryan is not interested in the poor. He is hardly a good choice to inspire the graduating class of Benedictine College. Robert Hill, Lawrenceville, GA - As someone who follows the Rule of Benedict and prays the Divine Office daily, I support Sr. Simone Campbell and others like her. Laurie Zelesnikar Medford, OR 1980 - Because Paul Ryan’s position is in no way reflective of the spirit and values I learned at BC. Jan Swartzendruber, Hesston, KS - The Bible strongly emphasizes that those who love God tend to the needs of the poor. Paul Ryan is not interested in the poor. He is hardly a good choice to inspire the graduating class of BC. Douglas Langer, Liberty, MO - I work with the poor every day. I see the amazing ways they work to try to improve their lives and lift their own dignity up. Paul Ryan works every day to make that harder… Linda Serafini-Gate, Lebanon, PA - Rep. Paul Ryan claims to be Catholic but has not internalized the teachings of Christ Jesus or the Catholic Church. Jane Stower, Overland Park, KS - Benedictines have been strong supporters of services to the underprivileged, and having a commencement address by Paul Ryan sends a signal of lukewarm acquiescence to policies crushing services to the poor… Beth Seberger, Kansas City, KS This action sends the wrong message. Until Mr. Ryan supports legislation in line with the Church’s teachings on social justice, he should not be held up as an example to graduates of a Catholic college. Daniel Connolly, Overland Park, KS - His voting record is an insult to the Catholic Church’s stand on human dignity. Angela Elias, Denver, CO 1991 - Surely there can be a better choice to exemplify the Benedictine teachings than Rep. Ryan. Anthony Martinez, Topeka, KS As a proud alumnus of Benedictine…I think that the college should stay away from inviting any politician as commencement speaker. Why not invite someone like Sister Simone Campbell instead? Leah Vader, Gilette, WY - Both my parents and my sister are Benedictine grads. I went there for a year. Paul Ryan does not represent the Catholic values I and my family cherish and practice. Amanda DeVaul-Fetters, London, Canada - Although Ryan is a big name who will bring a lot of media attention to BC he is definitely not the right person to represent the ideals of the Benedictine community. Jackie Palmer, Kansas City, MO - Ryan is an embarrassment to Catholics. He is all show. The last example a student needs is someone who is so self-contradicting in word and action, disregarding the circumstances. Rose McLarney, Kansas City, MO - Paul Ryan does not exhibit values commensurate with Jesus’ teaching to serve the poor and forgotten. Michael Mathews, Lee’s Summit, MO - Paul Ryan is the opposite of what Jesus asked us to do. Irene Adams, Lenexa, KS - His views on Medicare. Emily Weir, Swansea, IL - I am an alumna of Benedictine College and don’t support Mr. Paul’s politics. Joan Papineau, Atchison, KS Sending bright young graduates off into the world is crazy…Surely he was chosen because of his high profile status rather than his message. I suspect Benedictine has found some way to profit financially from Mr. Ryan’s celebrity…but at the expense of their graduates. Steven Kucharo, Kansas City, KS - I work with the poor everyday. Our current economic situation is putting many at strained living conditions. I would like to see more support for those in need. Paul Shepherd, Oakland, CA As an alumnus, I remember how Christ spent his entire life helping the poor and the sick. Ryan’s ideology is to reduce taxes no matter the consequences to the needy, counter to Christ’s message. Martha King, Oklahoma City, OK - I believe our new Pope would sign this petition too! George Bilimek Atchison, KS 1965 - Rep. Ryan believes in taking from the poor and giving to the rich. He is the consummate shill for the ruling class. Whose idea was this? Niklas Borefors, Stockhlom, Sweden -…Proud alumni of Benedictine College…but this is too far out. Please don’t make this even possible in reality. Susan Holmes, OSB, St. Joseph, MO - A Benedictine College education should be open to all who qualify academically with loans and work study available for those in need. Paul Ryan’s abuse of the poor, aged, and needy does not represent Benedictine values, Catholic values and even good moral values. Benedictine students used to pride themselves on their “community spirit”. Paul Ryan prides himself on individualism and greed. There is no way he can represent Benedictine values and Catholic values. Dorothy Andries, Deerfield, IL - I am a Benedictine Oblate and I am surprised that a Benedictine college would consider Ryan a suitable commencement speaker. The ideas he embraced during his vice-presidential campaign and the budget he proposed this session indicate no social conscience and no concern for those less fortunate than himself. Angela Orangifard, Prairie Village, KS - This is important to me because I see Benedictine College as home, a place I came to be. To associate radical politics or politics of any sort with Benedictine College is heart breaking. Thomas O’Connor, Brooklyn, NY He is too much of a divisive figure in our culture. This move appears to be more in favor of a certain alumni demographic that would simultaneously motivate large donations to the campus. I’m guessing money is the motivating factor. Jane Mehrens, Kansas City, KS I can’t believe a person whose proposed budget for our nation that would do so much harm to the working poor and middle class would be invited to speak at a Catholic college. I am extremely disappointed in this choice.

Atchison Globe

Strong pitching guides Ravens to victory By LOGAN JACKSON Atchison Globe

The Maur Hill-Mount Academy baseball team climbed above .500 with a sweep of Doniphan West Thursday – thanks in large part to three solid pitching performances. Mark McDermed, Chase Behler and Jonny Kane combined for 14 innings of great baseball on the mound. The Ravens (4-3, 4-3 DVL) won the first game 10-3 and the second game 5-3. “What was great was that these guys struggled last week against Oskaloosa,” head coach Phil Baniewicz said. “Today, all three of them pitched exceptionally well. It was just a wonderful change. They didn’t like what happened last week – so they worked on things and did a good job.” McDermed got the start in Game 1 and threw four and a third innings. LOGAN JACKSON/Atchison Globe Kane picked up the save, Maur Hill-Mount Academy’s Mark McDermed strikes out a Doniphan West batter Thursday. McDermed picked up the win in Game 1, a 10-3 Raven victory. pitching the final two-plus

innings. He also earned the save in Game 2. “It was nice for Jonny to get a couple saves on the day,” Baniewicz said. “We talked about brining Cole (Siebenmorgen) in for the final inning – buy Jonny has a really great mentality right now. He wants the ball. He wants that job.” Behler pitched a strong six innings in the second game. All three runs scored by the Mustangs were unearned. “We haven’t had him on the mound that much,” Baniewicz said. “He’s only a sophomore. He got a little frustrated during that first inning – and he threw a couple pitches where he just gunned it. He’s got a pretty live arm, and he’s only going to get stronger.” Behler and Cody Calhoon led the charge offensively in Game 1. Both players had three hits. Behler scored two runs and had an RBI. Calhoon had a double and scored three runs. Please see RAVENS/Page 2B

Finding their groove — Lady Red sweep Washington By LOGAN JACKSON Atchison Globe

The Atchison High School softball team has found its groove. With a sweep of Washington Thursday, the Lady Red have now won six of their past seven games. AHS beat Washington 15-0 in Game 1 and 16-0 in Game 2. “I thought everything went real well tonight,” head coach Steve Watkins said. “We were pretty focused about things.” Hannah Jaloma picked up the win for Atchison in the first game. She only had to throw three innings in the contest. Avery Enzbrenner earned the win in Game

2, as she also only threw three innings. “They both did a good job,” Watkins said. “They’re always around the plate. They pound the strike zone and make the other team put the ball in play.” The Lady Red (6-3, 5-0 KCAL) got some bigtime offense from Arika Smith, especially in the first game. Smith had two home runs in the first contest to pace AHS. “She hit three really hard shots in that first game,” Watkins said. “She’s been hitting the ball really well.” Lizzie Walz was also solid offensively during the doubleheader, ending the night with four hits – two of which were doubles

and one triple. Brooke Jackson went 1-for-2 at the plate in Game 2 and Enzbrenner also added a home run in that game. “We know that we need to have people contributing all the way through the lineup,” Watkins said. “In the past, it seems like we’ve tailed off toward the bottom of the order. This year, I feel like we’re solid one through nine. We have girls that are really good at their roles.” Payton Nigus continued her base stealing spree, robbing four bases in the first game. She had seven steals in a game earlier this season.

The Maur Hill-Mount Academy softball team exploded for 54 runs Thursday during its sweep of Doniphan West.

The Lady Ravens had scored only one run in seven games before Thursday’s outburst. “You could tell the girls’ attitude after the game was totally different,” head coach Rod Fry said. “We’ve

got some confidence now. Winning really raised the team’s confidence.” The Lady Ravens (27, 2-7 DVL) won the first game, 21-9. After falling Please see OFFENSE/Page 2B

MH-MA golf finishes seventh By LOGAN JACKSON Atchison Globe

The Maur Hill-Mount Academy golf team finished seventh out of 12 teams Thursday during a tough tournament at the Bellevue Country Club. Brock Hanf led the Ravens with an 81. Evan Wheeler shot an 86. “If you didn’t shoot in the 70s, you didn’t medal,” Kunecke said. “It was a really competitive meet. I was hoping Evan and Brock would break 80.

They’ve been playing really well lately. “Both of them had some problems putting, though. Both of them hit the ball well but really struggled on the greens.” The top 10 finishers medaled Thursday. Christian Wessel finished third for MH-MA. He shot a 91. Sean Falk was right behind him with a 92. “Christian played in our No. 3 spot,” Kunecke said. “And the other No. 3s that he was playing with were all pretty good.” Please see GOLF/Page 2B

The cold reality is that motorcyclists are 30 times more likely to die in a crash than people in a car, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The numbers are even scarier for older riders. Because of slower reflexes, weaker eyesight, more brittle bones and other disadvantages, riders over 60 years old are three times more likely to be hospitalized after a crash than younger ones. The key to optimizing your odds is to be prepared and avoid risks. Forty-eight percent of fatalities in 2010 involved speeding, according to the IIHS, and alcohol was a factor in 42 percent. Here are some more tips to help you – or a loved one – stay safe on two wheels: ❯ Don’t buy more bike than you can handle. If you’ve been off of motorcycles for a while, you may be surprised by the performance of today’s bikes. Even models with small-displacement engines are notably faster and more powerful than they were 10 or 20 years ago. ❯ Invest in anti-lock brakes. Now available on a wide array of models, anti-lock brakes are a proven lifesaver. IIHS data shows that motorcycles equipped

with ABS brakes were 37 percent less likely to be involved in a fatal crash than bikes without it. ❯ Hone your skills. A Motorcycle Safety Foundation riding course or similar class can teach you the basics, as well as advanced techniques, like evasive emergency maneuvers. The cost ranges from free to about $350. An approved safety course may make you eligible for an insurance discount and, in some states, to skip the road test and/or the written test part of the licensing process. ❯ Use your head. Yes, helmets are an emotional topic for some riders. But the facts show the risk. Riders without a helmet are 40 percent more likely to suffer a fatal head injury in a crash and are three times more likely to suffer brain injuries than those with helmets, according to government studies. ❯ Wear the right gear. Jeans, a T-shirt and sandals are recipes for a painful disaster on a bike. Instead, you want gear that will protect you from wind chill, flying bugs and debris, and, yes, lots of road rash if you should slide out. For maximum protection, go for a leather or other reinforced jacket, gloves, full pants and overthe-ankle footwear, even in summer. You’ll also want effective eye protection. ❯ Be defensive. A recent study by the University of South Florida’s Center for Urban Transportation Research found that in col-

lisions involving a motorcycle and a car, car drivers were at fault 60 percent of the time. So you need to be extra alert. Keep an eye out for cars changing lanes suddenly or pulling out from side streets. And don’t tailgate. ❯ Avoid bad weather. Slippery conditions reduce your margin for error. Rain not only cuts your visibility but reduces the motorcycle tires’ grip on the road, which can make cornering tricky. If you need to ride in the rain, remember that the most dangerous time is right after precipitation begins, as the water can cause oil residue to rise to the top. ❯ Watch for road hazards. A motorcycle has less contact with the pavement than a car. Sand, wet leaves or pebbles can cause a bike to slide unexpectedly, easily resulting in a spill. Bumps and potholes that you might barely notice in a car can pose serious danger when on a bike. ❯ Be ready to roll. Before each ride, Consumer Reports recommends doing a quick walk-around to make sure your lights, horn and directional signals are working properly. Check the chain, belt or shaft and the brakes. And inspect the tires for wear and make sure they’re set at the proper pressure.

ASK DR. K.

The right words give clues for treating neck pain DEAR DOCTOR K: My neck hurts, but my doctor hasn’t been able to figure out why. I think if I had the words to better describe my pain, it might give him the clues he needs. Can you help?

Ask Dr. K Anthony L. Komaroff, M.D.

DEAR READER: Many of my patients have trouble describing their discomfort beyond telling me “it hurts.” Even a slightly more specific description can help me identify – or exclude – a particular diagnosis. To better describe your neck pain, start with the following questions. Be prepared to answer them next time you see your doctor: ❯ How severe is the pain? On a scale of 1 (least pain) to 10 (most pain), how bad is it? ❯ If the pain changes with different movements, how bad is it at its least painful, and how bad is it at its most painful? ❯ What movements of the head, neck, shoulders or back make the pain better, and what movements make it worse? ❯ Are your neck and shoulders stiff ? Does it seem like more work than usual to move them? ❯ How would you describe the pain? Is it an ache, is it sharp, is it

just in one spot or does it travel (for example, into your arm)? ❯ Do you feel pain only when you turn your head, or does the pain get worse when you turn your head? ❯ Along with the pain, do you have any other symptoms? For example, is your arm or hand weak? Neck pain can vary a great deal based on what’s causing it. Use the following descriptions to help explain your symptoms: ❯ Muscle pain causes aching or sore neck and shoulder muscles. Muscles may develop hard knots that are sore to the touch. ❯ A muscle spasm is a sudden, powerful contraction of neck muscles. The muscle usually feels painful, tight or knotted, and may be temporarily difficult to move. ❯ Neck-related headache is usually felt in the back of the head and upper neck. It is typically dull or aching, rather than sharp. It is often accompanied by

stiffness and tenderness of neck muscles. ❯ The facet joints are where two spine bones (vertebrae) contact each other. Often described as deep, sharp or aching, facet joint pain typically worsens if you lean your head toward the affected side. It may radiate to your shoulder or upper back. ❯ Nerve pain may be sharp, fleeting, severe, or accompanied by pins and needles. The pain may shoot down your arm or into your hand. Also tell your doctor about your non-pain symptoms: ❯ Stiffness, tightness and rigidity in the muscles. Bending or moving your neck may be difficult or cause sharp pain. ❯ Limited range of motion. This is evident in a reduced ability to flex and extend your neck and bend or rotate your head from side to side. The more specific you can be about your neck pain, the more your doctor can help you.

Smart money

Inheritance is earmarked for next generations

Monty

DEAR BRUCE: I have recently inherited $50,000. I would like to leave it to my children and grandchildren. I will not need this money, and it came from my side of the family. My husband won’t need it if I should die before him. How can I do this?

You can leave the money in your will. However, you may not cut your husband out of the will. Where the money came from is not important. Each state’s laws vary regarding what must be left to a spouse, but no matter what, you will not be able to cut your husband out of the will concerning the $50,000. Since you and your husband don’t need the money, you ought to consult an attorney and have an agreement drawn up so the money would bypass him if you pass away before he does.

Answer to previous week’s puzzle

I always pay my bills online through my bank. Two weeks before my credit card payment was due, I made the payment. When my statement came the next month, I was surprised there was a late fee for the previous month. When I called my bank, they told me that it had been done as I requested, two weeks in advance. My credit card company, however, claims they received the payment three days late, or 17 days after I had submitted it online. Since I am a good customer and have always paid my bill on time, I did get them to reimburse the late fee. I have had this

card for several years and am planning on canceling the card. My question is, will this affect my credit?

Reader, via email DEAR READER: I am wondering why you are canceling the card. Hopefully, not because of this minor error, which has been corrected. Assuming you cancel the card, it very well may reduce your credit score a few points, but that’s a relatively modest amount and a temporary proposition. Do you have others to cover you if you need such an accommodation? On balance, if you have had the account for a decent period of time, I would seriously consider not using it, if that’s your intention, but I would not cancel it.

Bruce Williams

DEAR BRUCE: My wife’s 90-year-old father is currently living with us. When he and his wife were married, they had two wills made out that were identical. Both stated that the surviving spouse is left everything. Since she has passed away, does he need to make out a new will? And will the old one have to be probated?

Reader in Arizona DEAR READER: The first question is, since his wife is no longer in the picture, who would be left as heir to your father-in-law’s estate? In

the event that there are no alternate heirs named, he will have to have a new will made. For example, my will states that in the event of my wife’s passing before me, my daughter, Maryann, receives my entire estate. That should be sufficient. The newest will would have to be probated in order for the money to be distributed. If I were you, I would be more comfortable spending a couple of hundred dollars to have a new will drawn.

DEAR BRUCE: About 10 years ago, my daughter took a loan out on a house for $32,000. Since this time she has fallen ill and I have been helping her with her finances. I was shocked to see that her balance is still $32,000. I’m assuming that this is some kind of revolving account, but I am unclear as to how it will ever be paid off. What do you suggest?

Reader, via email DEAR READER: If you are interested in getting the whole thing resolved, the first thing you should do is get her authorization in writing so you can make inquiries regarding the account. Find out exactly what type of account it is. Perhaps it’s an interest-only account, but until this information is available, I can’t make an intelligent comment. That’s the first move.

God and the Boston bombing

P

RAYER: “Heavenly Father. Jesus said, ‘I will do whatever you ask in my name.’ (John 14: 13a.). Therefore, I ask you in the name of your Son Jesus Christ, to fill my mind with the Holy Spirit and give me the thoughts that I can turn into words that will bring your message to those who read this article. I pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.” I invite you to read this Bible verse in the light of the horror in Boston. “The mind of sinful man is death, but the mind controlled by the Holy Spirit is life and peace.” (Romans 8:6). Two young radicalized Islamic men with satanically controlled minds casually walked among thousands of innocent men, women and children who were celebrating the Boston Marathon. They carried handmade bombs and placed them where they would maim, kill and inflict maximum human suffering. They casually waited until the bombs exploded. Then they blended into the crowds to continue their demonic terrorism that was inspired by “The mind of sinful men.” The minds of those who were influenced by the Holy Spirit of God immediately rushed toward the explosions. This exposed them to more potential explosions to help the wounded and the dying. They tore obstacles out of their way so they could minister first aid to the wounded. I invite us to lift our eyes to behold the God who changes not. Jehovah God does not change His character of holy purity and love when mortals demonstrate their sinful nature. God’s throne is not shaken by human wickedness. Against inhuman and heinous backdrops of satanic evil, God’s unchanging sacrificial love and peace glows even brighter: “God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world that He (even) gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost) but

have eternal (everlasting) life. For God did not send the Son into the world in order to judge, (to reject, to condemn, to pass sentence on) the world, but that the world might find salvation and be made safe and sound through him.” (John 3:16,17 AMP). God loves in spite of human atrocities. His love reaches beyond our sin and sees our greater need. Humans want to condemn and punish, while God’s eternal love longs to forgive, save and change the hearts and minds of sinners. “Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed.” (Isaiah 54:10 NIV). How can an imperfect human properly describe a pure and holy God? Frederick M. Lehman (1917) says it well in his song: “The Love of God.” Rev. Jack 1. The love of God is Albright greater far
Than tongue or pen can ever tell;
It goes beyond the highest star,
And reaches to the lowest hell;
The guilty pair, bowed down with care,
God gave His Son to win;
His erring child He reconciled,
And pardoned from his sin. Refrain:
Oh, love of God, how rich and pure!
How measureless and strong!
It shall forevermore endure The saints’ and angels’ song. 2. When hoary time shall pass away,
And earthly thrones and kingdoms fall,
When men who here refuse to pray,
On rocks and hills and mountains call,
God’s love so sure, shall still endure,
All measureless and strong;
Redeeming grace to Adam’s race —
The saints’ and angels’ song. 3. Could we with ink the ocean fill,
And were the skies of parchment made,
Were every stalk on earth a quill,
And every man a scribe by trade;
To write the love of God above
Would drain the ocean dry;
Nor could the scroll contain the whole,
Though stretched from sky to sky

Examen

have been reading a book on the teachings of Ignatius Loyola. Ignatius helped people see and understand how God works in every part of their lives. His teachings have lasted more than five hundred years for a reason. They are down to earth and very practical and I would like to share a simple exercise that I read about that will help you build a closer, more intimate relationship with God. The exercise Ignatius taught was known as Examen. Examen is the Spanish word for examine and is a technique used in his spiritual “exercises” to help people see God working in their lives. Examen has five basic steps. These five steps should be followed at the end of every day so you can reflect on God. They are very simple and anyone can do them. The first step is to show Gratitude to God for the blessings He bestows on you during the day. Once we are aware of God’s blessings we should give thanks for those blessings. Training our brains to show gratitude and to give thanks to God every day helps us to focus on the positive aspects of our lives. It is hard to be negative and focus on God at the same time. The way to conquer this is to focus on and be grateful and thankful for the blessing God has provided. The second step is Review. We should review the entire day and recall the events of the day from beginning to end. While doing so notice where you felt God’s presence. Also notice the times during the day that you accepted or turned away from the invitation from God to grow in His love. Reviewing our days is very important so we can pay attention to God inviting us into a relationship with him. The third step is recalling and acknowledging times during the day that you sinned and felt sorrow for that sin. God gave us all a conscience for a reason and if we make mistakes, we feel sorrow for those mistakes. It is when we feel sorrow

and recall those areas of sin in our lives that we can move on to step four. Step four is asking God for forgiveness for the sins we have committed. God forgives us for EVERY sin, but we must seek out His forgiveness. Once we are forgiven then we need to make a decision on whether or not our sin has affected another person. If it has then we should seek reconciliation with that person, the person whom we have hurt. Step four is very important because it frees us from guilt and sorrow. We are made free in Christ but we must be willing to take the action to seek God for forgiveness and reconcile with our “neighbors.” The fifth step in the daily Examen is to ask God for the Grace we need for the following day and ask God to help the eyes of our hearts to be opened up to perceive his presence more clearly in our daily lives. Remember, “Ask and Steve it will be given to you.” and you will find.” Kagin “Seek “Knock and the door will be opened for you.” When we Seek, Ask and Knock God will make his presence known in our lives. These five steps are very real and practical to help us find and experience God in our lives and help us to build a better relationship with him. I am going to make an effort to follow these five steps daily in my prayer life. I am eager to see what will happen. Whenever we dedicate time to God, the rewards are great. Examining anything in life puts focus on it and allows even the smallest details to be noticed. If you examined the new buds on the trees and the small blossoms, you would notice many details. When we take time to follow these five steps and EXAMEN our daily relationship with God, even the smallest blessings, the slightest growth and the subtlest nudging to stop sin will become apparent. We will be changed.
