OPEN WINDOWS can be a safety hazard for children, who may accidentally fall through if they aren’t closely supervised by parents or caregivers. Window guards and stops should also be used, said Safe Kids Kansas.

Window watch When the weather gets warm, open windows can be a cost-effective way to keep cool. But they can also be a safety hazard for children, who may fall through. Safe Kids Kansas offers ways to let the fresh air in while keeping your children safe. Q: How common are windowrelated accidents? A: Every year in the United States, window falls account for about 12 childhood deaths and about 4,000 injuries for children under the age of 10. Toddlers have been known to fall out of windows open as little as 5 inches. Q: What about in Kansas? A: In Kansas, from 2000 to 2009, there were 77 accidental falls-related hospital discharges that occurred from falls out of a building or other structure. Most of these falls occurred in younger children.

Q: Does a screen offer enough protection to keep a child from falling through? A: “A screen is not a safety device,” said Cherie Sage, state director of Safe Kids Kansas. “It’s designed to keep insects out, not to keep children in.” Q: What are some open window safety tips? A: First, Safe Kids Kansas recommends that adults actively supervise their children when around open windows. Other safety tips include installing window guards or stops, keeping windows locked and closed when they aren’t being used, and keeping furniture away from windows so children can’t climb to the ledge. Q: Where can I find more information? A: For more information, visit usa.safekids.org.

The Bonner Springs Parks and Recreation Department will have its third annual Spring Youth Fishing Derby 2-4 p.m. Sunday, May 20, at North Park Lake, 1200 S. 134th St. This event is free for kids ages 15 and under so youngsters can experience first-hand the fun of fishing. Participants will be divided into three different age groups with prizes given for those who catch the longest fish, shortest fish, and the most fish. Fish that do not meet the legal length limit set by the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks must be released back into the lake after they have been measured and counted. Youth are welcome to take home and cook all fish they catch that meet the legal limits. Parents will be required to have a license if they are fishing; youth participants are not required to have one. Fishing equipment and bait will be provided for youth that do not have any. Pre-registration is preferred, at 4227010, but participants may register the day of the event at the lake.

Police present memorial The Bonner Springs Police Department will commemorate the ultimate sacrifice of police officers who have given their all in service to their community, by sponsoring a brief Memorial Day observance, at 11 a.m. Thursday, May 17, at Kelly Murphy Park, Second and Elm streets. Officers will lay a wreath and flowers at the park in honor of the nation’s fallen officers, as well as those Bonner Springs Police Officers who made the ultimate sacrifice, C. Leroy Damron and Maureen Kelly Murphy. The observance is being conducted in conjunction with National Law Enforcement Memorial Week. National Law Enforcement Memorial Week, also known as Police Week, is a time of nationwide observance and recognition of fallen Police Officers.

Bonner business creates WWI ‘toy’ By Caroline Boyer cboyer@theworldco.info

At first glance, it might look like Bonner Springs resident Steve Allen gets to play with toys all day. But his home-based business, Timewalker Toys & Collectibles, is a very serious undertaking. For one thing, business is booming for the online retailer of onesixth scale figures, largely consisting of World War II military figures and movie characters — Allen said the company has been virtually untouched by a downtrodden economy. “We’ve never really seen a period of stagnation, even through the worst of the recession,” he says. For another, Allen and his wife, Margaret, have taken on the significant task of introducing a new era to the market, producing a prototype for a World War I line of figures. Already, a copycat figure is being produced by another manufacturer that caught wind of the Allens’ line, but the Allens hope it is clear their toy is of a higher quality. “They have produced a similar product; ours is distinguished in the fact that it is much more historically accurate,” Steve Allen said. “It’s not to say that their figure is bad, but it’s more of the common kind of output you get from the industry.”

Not just a G.I. Joe Allen got into the 1/6-scale industry a decade ago as a collector, shortly after it started to grow when a company called Dragon Models started producing fully articulated, historically accurate World War II figures. “A lot of people will look at it superficially and think back to the days of the old G.I. Joes that are 12-inch,” Steve Allen said. “But they’ve come so far now, that the representation of a soldier in 1/6 scale form can be highly detailed, with hyper-realistic headscopes and miniature equipment. It’s miniature militaria, really.” Allen estimates about 2,000 to 3,000 individual figures have been created over the years. World War II toys range from average soldiers to historical figures such as German field marshal Erwin Rommel and Hitler. These figures cost $80 to $120. A company called Hot Toys began producing 1/6 scale figures from the comic book movie industry, such Captain America and Thor, and cost $150 to $200. “The kids love them, but the kids can’t afford them, so they’re really for adults,” Steve Allen said. With the level of historical accuracy, collectors include professors who use the toys in their teaching to those who put the pose-able dolls in dioramas.

THE 1/6-SCALE TOY industry is largely populated with World War II figures, like these from Steve Allen’s personal collection.

They’ve come so far now, that the representation of a soldier in 1/6 scale form can be highly detailed, with hyper-realistic headscopes and miniature equipment.” — Steve Allen, owner, Timewalker Toys & Collectibles “The reason for a lot of hobbyists that 1/6 scale is interesting is it’s not too big, where it’s going to take up a lot of space, but it’s not so small that you can’t appreciate the minutiae, the detail of the equipment,” Steve Allen said.

Booming business It didn’t take long for Allen to go from collector to seller. The business began when he visited an Overland Park online vendor to pick up a few items. “I kind of got the bug at that time; I looked around and thought, ‘We can do this — there’s something here,’” Steve Allen said. Allen and his wife, both with anthropology degrees from Kansas University, where they met, took their business’s name from anthropologist Clive Gamble’s book “Timewalkers: The Prehistory of Global Colonization.” They said they knew their niche would be selling 1/6 scale to militaria collectors, and so began to sell their products at militaria shows. It seems to have worked. “The intent was to make just a little bit of additional income, but it grew pretty quickly and became all-consuming rather fast,” Steve Allen said. “Over the course of a couple years, we had established ourselves as one of the leading 1/6 scale retailers out there, and we’ve been building on it ever since.” In 2008, Steve Allen quit his other job and started running the business full-time. The couple say they continued with a conservative approach but found they weren’t impacted by the economy. Customers told them they were taking fewer vacations but spending more time at home with their hobby. “You would think that the unnecessaries in life would go by the wayside, but when you’re not able to do all the things you would prefer to do in the summer time, this is a good thing to occupy your leisure time with,” Steve Allen said. Uncharted territory Just as Steve began working fulltime on Timewalker, he and Margaret decided to see if they could fill a void Please see TOY LINE, page 9A

Click it or Ticket around the corner By Lloyd Martley Basehor Chief of Police

Beginning Monday and continuing through Sunday, June 3, drivers can expect increased police presence as the Basehor Police Department joins more than 150 other law enforcement agencies in aggressively enforcing Kansas occupant restraint and other traffic laws as part of the 2012 Kansas Click It or Ticket traffic enforcement campaign. This activity is supported by a grant from the Kansas Department of Transportation. Expect strict enforcement of the Safety Belt Use and Child Passenger Safety Acts. These acts require that all occupants must be appropriately restrained. Occupants ages 14 and older are cited individually. In the event that a passenger under the age of 14 is unrestrained, the driver will be cited. Children under the age of 4 must be secured in an approved child safety seat. Children ages 4 through 7 must be securely belted into an approved booster seat unless taller than 4 feet 9 inches or heavier than 80 pounds. Children ages 8 through 13 must be safety-belted. In addition, the act prohibits persons under the age of 14 from riding in any part of a vehicle not intended for carrying passengers, such as a pickup bed. The aim of Click It or Ticket is simple: to drastically reduce the number of preventable deaths and injuries that occur when unbelted drivers and passengers are involved in traffic crashes.

According to KDOT’s Traffic Safety section, more than two-thirds of those killed in crashes are not belted in. Just as striking is the fact that about 89 percent of crash survivors who suffer no injuries at all are belted in. In other words, an unrestrained occupant has only about an 11 percent chance of not being injured in a crash. And all for simply not taking two seconds to buckle up. Everyone knows there are seat belt laws and that seat belts and child safety seats save lives and reduce injury, as well as hold down health care costs for all of us. But too many drivers play the odds and don’t buckle up or require their passengers to buckle up because, in their experience, a crash is unlikely. But when a crash does happen, it’s generally within five miles from home. When you don’t buckle up yourself or require that your passengers buckle up, you’re making the decision for everyone in your vehicle that the drivers you meet are not going to be distracted by sleepiness, cell phone conversations, texting, changing radio stations or kids fighting in the back seat. And you’re assuming for everyone, that no animal, roadway or mechanical problem will cause you to suddenly brake or veer out of your lane. I want people to know that the Basehor Police Department is committed to aggressively ticketing violators of seat belt and child safety laws, and all other traffic infractions that make our streets and highways unsafe.

JUSTIN ROBERTS, 13, Bonner Springs, stands near one of his two prints currently on display at The New Theatre Restaurant in Overland Park. The exhibit features the artowrk of Justin and his classmates at Horizon Academy, a private school for students with learning disabilities in Roeland Park.

Art show gives students self-esteem boost By Caroline Boyer cboyer@theworldco.info

While his learning disability can make school difficult at times, 11-yearold Jonathan Jackson said one thing he always enjoys is his art class. “(I like) the creativity,” he said. “It’s the only time I get to feel free.” The Lawrence student attends Horizon Academy in Roeland Park, a private school for children in grades kindergarten through 12 who struggle with learning disabilities. Kit Bardwell, art teacher at Horizon, said her class puts all students on an equal playing field. “It gives them an opportunity to express themselves in ways that don’t require the use of literacy skills,” Bardwell said. Now, more people from the area are learning about Horizon and the challenges its students face with essential skills such as spelling, reading, writing and mathematics. Artwork created by Horizon students, including two of Jonathan’s pieces, is currently on display at the New Theatre Restaurant in Overland Park. The artwork is being exhibited and sold to coincide with “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee,” which is at the theater through June 21. Sam O’neill of Shawnee said “it’s pretty unbelievable” to have his artwork included in the exhibit. “It’s a great opportunity that comes once, maybe twice, in a lifetime,” the Horizon sixth-grader said. Sam said his painting of a dragon was an homage to the film, “How to Train Your Dragon,” one of his favorites. Another student from Shawnee, seventh-grader Cole Megerson, also had artwork displayed in the exhibit, though his piece has sold already. Sam has a form of autism known as Asperger’s syndrome, his mother, Amy O’neill, said. She said art had helped give her son a sense of confidence he may not have had otherwise. “I think he feels like he’s good at

art and he gets a lot of compliments,” she said. “And I think it makes him feel successful that he’s good at something.” Rob McGraw, director of marketing and sales for the theater, organizes art exhibitions for each show, trying to find a connection between the show in the theater and the art on display. So with the current show related to a school, he thought about the theater’s co-owner, whose son attends Horizon and who often brings his son’s school artwork to the theater. McGraw said he hoped the exhibit raised awareness of Horizon and its students, since about 50,000 people in all see each show and most spend time browsing the art display. Within the first few weeks, three pieces of artwork had sold at $120 each, with proceeds benefiting the visual arts program at the school. Bardwell said the students got excited about the idea of the show and enjoyed coming up with names for each of their pieces. “It was a surprise opportunity, but it really was a self-esteem boost,” Bardwell said. Justin Roberts, 13, a student from Bonner Springs, said he was excited that so many people would see his artwork — he also has two pieces in the exhibit. “It’s very cool,” he said. “(I think that) people will think ‘good job.’” Justin thought there was a good chance his pieces might be purchased. “I think someone will purchase them, and I’ll feel happy about that,” he said.

KANSAS CITY CHIEFS SAFETY JON MCGRAW smiles as he takes questions from fifthgraders during a visit to Basehor Intermediate School on Monday. Matt Erickson/ Staff

KC Chief McGraw visits Basehor fifth-graders

Midland Railway 1515 W. High Street, Baldwin City, KS 66006

By Matt Erickson

When Jace Friesen told his friends he had a cousin who played for the Kansas City Chiefs, they were skeptical. “My friends couldn’t believe it at first,” said Jace, a fifth-grader. “They thought I was lying.” But they got proof on Monday, when Chiefs safety Jon McGraw stood in front of his second cousin’s classmates at Basehor Intermediate School, wearing his No. 47 jersey. Jace and his family had asked McGraw — who is the first cousin of Jace’s father, Andy — to visit the fifthgraders at BIS as a reward for their hard work and good performance on state assessment tests. Hard work is the reason McGraw has forged a 10-year NFL career after playing football for the first time as a scrawny seventh-grader, he told the students. “When I first started playing football, I wasn’t very good,” McGraw said. McGraw, 33, grew up on a farm in the town of Riley and graduated as part of a class of 44, he said, before playing football at Kansas State University. He was drafted by the New York Jets in 2002 and came to the Chiefs in 2007. He told the students that if they continued to perform well in school, it would help them down the road. Even

as an NFL player, he said, he used a lot of skills he learned during school, including the ability to sit and absorb information during hours of meetings each week. “You’ve got to be able to learn fast,” McGraw said. And his business degree from KState would come in handy soon, he said. He hasn’t signed a contract to return to the Chiefs for next season, and his playing days are likely winding down, he said. He’ll likely look to land a job in financial planning, commercial real estate or another industry. After one student asked him if he celebrates touchdowns by spiking the ball on the ground, McGraw laughed. Because he plays on defense, he’s scored only one touchdown in his NFL career. “My touchdown celebration needs a little bit of work,” McGraw said. “I may need some help from you guys.” After his talk, students crowded around him, holding in their outstretched hands anything they could find for him to autograph: backpacks, jerseys, water bottles, hats or just a piece of notebook paper. Fifth-grader Colyn Lucas, his voice still loud with excitement, showed off his iPod that was now decorated with McGraw’s signature. “He’s awesome at football!” Colyn said.

Toy line

I have to admit, the project with Steve and Margaret, that’s a first, for us to do that on that they had noticed in the industry. Both lovers of history, they had been type of scale.” CONTINUED FROM PAGE 3A

volunteering at the National World War I Museum in Kansas City since its 2006 opening. But the 1/6 scale industry didn’t reflect figures from The Great War. “With the centennial approaching it’s time — it’s getting closer to time to have them out,” Margaret Allen said. They started petitioning manufacturers in the industry to look at World War I as an option for a toy line. “Nobody really had an interest at the time, but we finally got in contact with a company that was willing to take a look at it and look at our proposal,” Steve Allen said. The Allens went to California a year ago to pitch a World War I product line of figures to that company, CalTek. The time since has been spent determining just how to approach the line and the first prototype: an early war imperial German infantry soldier, wearing a spiked helmet and intricate tunic. “We decided on that figure because it is kind of the iconic look of the war, at least where the German Empire is concerned,” Steve said. “It has a little bit of flash to it, and we want to make a big impression with the first one.”

Developing a prototype The Allens have spent months working with World War I museum experts to ensure their prototype is historically accurate, at a level of research Steve Allen says goes beyond the norm in the industry. They have gone back to the original source material, taking photographs and measurements to make sure the manufacturers in China make the most accurate World War I figure possible. But the back and forth communication has been difficult. For example, they sent a photo of a helmet cover to the manufacturers, who sent back a 1/6-scale helmet cover including the holes from age and wear and tear shown in the photo.

“That wasn’t meant to be reproduced, but they took it literally,” Steve said. Altogether, they created 38 different panels with historical details and descriptions of each item on the toy. “It’s quite a laborious process to put all these things together, but it’s important because what we’re ultimately working toward is a highly realistic product line,” Steve said. Doran Cart, senior curator of the World War I Museum, said he has appreciated the Allens’ use of the museum as a research facility, and that the toy line may help revive people’s interest in the history of the war. Cart said the museum gets requests for research assistance from all over the world, from documentaries to graduate students’ research projects, but the Allens’ project was unique. “I have to admit, the project with Steve and Margaret, that’s a first, for us to do that on that type of scale,” he said. “As far as a whole detailed uniform and equipment for a 1914 German infantry soldier, that’s a whole different kind of project.” While the competitor’s copycat doll has a specific name and will hit the market in the next few months, the Allens are simply calling theirs the Battle of Liege German Infantry soldier, and they hope it will be available in the fall. The couple will continue with more World War I figures in the future, though they say it will be hard to research some soldiers, like Belgian and Russian, as original items are harder to find. They think the line will cause their business to finally expand beyond the capacity of their home, as well. “It’s quite a project, and it’s been a lot of fun to put together,” Steve said.

Fish for dinner Steamed hake packs in the flavor

By Alison Ladman For The Associated Press

Admittedly, steamed fish doesn’t exactly scream mouthwatering. But what it lacks in excitement it more than makes up for in health cred. Steaming generally involves no added fat and is a great way of retaining all of the nutrients in your food. Admittedly, It’s also relatively steamed fish speedy. One of the best doesn’t exways to steam fish actly scream is what the French mouthwatercall “en papillote” ing. But what (pronounced on it lacks in pap-ee-oat), or excitement literally “in parch- it more than ment.” makes up In this simple for in health method, fish is cred.” wrapped in a packet of parchment paper. As it cooks, the food releases juices. Those flavorful juices turn to steam and are trapped in the packet, cooking and flavoring the food, while keeping it moist. For our dish, we went with hake, a firm white fish. We arranged it over a bed of seasoned green beans and topped it with a simple blend of fresh herbs and lemon. Other ideas could be par-cooked, thinly sliced potatoes, scallops and rosemary.

Hake en Papillote Start to finish: 30 minutes Servings: 4 1/2 pound small green beans, trimmed Pinch smoked paprika Salt and ground black pepper Four 4-ounce hake fillets 4 sprigs fresh thyme 4 fresh mint leaves 4 small sprigs fresh marjoram 4 lemon slices Heat the oven to 375 F. Cut four large pieces parchment paper, about 12-by-20-inches each. Fold each in half the short way. In a small bowl, toss the green beans with the paprika. Season with salt and black pepper. Open each sheet of parchment similar to a book. Arrange a quarter of the beans on one half of each sheet of parchment, placing them close to the fold line. Top each pile with a hake fillet. Season again with salt and black pepper. Top each fillet with a sprig of thyme, a mint leaf, a sprig of marjoram and a slice of lemon. Fold the parchment packets closed like a book again. Starting at one end of the fold, fold the edges of the paper together every couple of inches, creating a seam all the way around. Tuck the last end under and place on a baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes. To serve, place each packet on a serving plate and tear open at the center.

Braves fall in regional final By Corey Thibodeaux Contributing writer

Earlier this season, members of the Basehor-Linwood softball team kept comparing themselves to the 2010 state championship team. Though the success and expectations remained the same, coach Susan Mayberry stopped the comparisons right there. “I don’t want you to be the 2010 team,” she told them. “I want you to be your own team.” That was when it sunk in. The Bobcats breezed to a 20-2 record and are once again heading to the state tournament after a 7-0 victory against Bonner Springs Tuesday in the 4A regional championship. As the Bobcats took turns hoisting the trophy and posing for photos, the Braves were huddled on the other side of the field coping with the loss. They went farther than most thought they would in this tournament, but it didn’t make losing in the championship game any easier to bear. “I told them just to go down swinging and work hard and not give up,” coach Denise Chowning said, fighting back tears. “And I don’t think they did.” Earlier on Tuesday, Bonner Springs avoided a comeback from Tonganoxie to win its semifinal, 8-5, and BasehorLinwood escaped in an ugly 3-1 victory against Jefferson-West. But for the Bobcats, sophomore Kayleigh Schoenfelder said, that performance let to a more focused approach in the final game. “As long as we do something at the plate,” she said, “it’s going to be OK.” With that mentality, the Bobcats scored three quick runs in the first inning and another in the fourth, starting with a little breathing room. It almost

sion advantage. And, more often than not, if the ball was in her vicinity, Stephens would get a touch on it. “We expect her to be our creator and finisher,” Mazeitis said. “There’s a lot on her shoulders, but I thought tonight she was creating nicely and she got rewarded with three goals.” With 10 minutes left in the first half, Stephens took a ball at the top of the box and volleyed it in for the game’s

In perhaps the best-played match of its splendid season, the Bonner Springs doubles team of senior Spencer Bush and sophomore Quinton Schneck fell in its first match of the state tournament Friday to Wichita-Collegiate 4-6, 6-4, 10-8. Upset with the agonizingly close defeat, coach Bill Scott told them that if they could just get by Abilene, they were right back in the tournament. Wichita-Collegiate’s hard-hitting game meshed well with Bush and Schneck’s, which is why they were so evenly matched. But Abilene’s unique game was the opposite. “I’ve never seen a team play like this ever,” Scott said. “All they did was lob the ball.” Bonner Springs lost its second match, the first round of the fifth place bracket, to Abilene’s Kanyan Anderson and Connor Kijowski, 9-5. In the one-set match, the Braves coaches alternated and tried all sorts of different tactics to help their baffled doubles team. Abilene was lobbing everything right from the return. The only thing Schneck and Bush could do was lob back. Anderson and Kijowski did the same thing earlier in the tournament, so this was no fluke. They had the advantage. “They knew they were driving us nuts,” Scott said. “They could see it. And no matter what we tried or what we told the guys, we couldn’t get out of it.”

She tossed eight strikeouts and had a no-hitter until Bonner Springs’ Cassady Holloway singled in the seventh inning. “It really pumps me up because I know she’s going to be there for me,” Bobcats sophomore Candice Jennings said. “And so are my other teammates.” Each player for Basehor-Linwood reached base, with Jennings leading

way going 3-for-4 and two RBI. Looking ahead, Mayberry said, the Bobcats are going into the state tournament for the third time in four years with no set expectations.

BLHS JUNIOR KARA STEPHENS scored all three of the Bobcats’ goals in Tuesday’s firstround regional victory against Sumner.

As she walked away from the pitch, Basehor-Linwood junior Kara Stephens was as short on breath as she was with words. To her, her three-goal performance to lead the Bobcats to their first regional tournament victory in memory was just a matter of “kicking it into space, making good runs and passing.” In stopping Sumner Academy 3-0 on Tuesday, Derek Mazeitis’ youthladen Bobcats (6-11) improved upon last year’s victory total while earning a rematch at Spring Hill (14-2) at 5 p.m. on Friday.

The Bonner Springs doubles team, which was 18-2 coming into the tournament, played its last match Friday and was understandably upset by the sudden tournament exit. Scott, who has raved about the team all year, waited about 10 minutes to talk to his duo after they left the court. It was hard to put a justifying cap on the season with not much to show. Former Bonner State champion Josh Mortensen was there to praise their impressive season, helping ease the pain. Reflecting on the season as a whole, Scott was more than proud of what his team did this season. They started with a fifth place team finish at Mill Valley, then placed second at Bonner Springs, second at Leavenworth and

third in regionals. The nearly unstoppable doubles team was just a bonus. No one had any idea Bonner Springs would have results like that. Now, the Braves are now looking into next season and how they will approach players leaving. Most notably, Bush is leaving from graduation. Unless anything unexpected happens, Scott said, Schneck is most likely going to be the No. 1 singles player and he needs to focus on improving in that area in the offseason. There is a chance that another doubles pairing for him won’t happen. The union of Bush and Schneck this season was somewhat of a surprise because they just clicked immediately. Scott knows that it’s hard to rely on that happening again. “The thing with Spencer is he was just tough,” Scott said. “He was a fouryear player and he had been through all the wars. I don’t have a guy like that for Quentin.”

-pions, it’s always team chemistry, team chemistry.” It’s not as if the Braves didn’t have some of the same qualities. Chowning said they were doing all they could against the Bobcats. They made plenty of contact off pitches, but they all quickly wound up in the glove of their opponents. All Bonner Springs needed was a little luck. That’s what made the loss so painful. “It’s easy to coach for a team that wants it,” Chowning said. “Losing those five seniors is going to hurt and

they set the tone for the underclassmen.” The future for this Bonner Springs team looks bright as several underclassmen had significant roles this season. But for an emotional Shelbie Thorton, a graduating senior along with Breanna Tendick, Amber Stephens, Meagan Stice and Kylee Timberlake, it’ll be hard not to wonder what could have been. “It’s just the fact that we’re not coming back next year,” she said.

first score. The shot served as a response to the physical defense applied on Stephen’s by Sumner’s Lina Garcia, who on the previous play sent Stephens to the grass near the goal. “Just play hard back,” Stephens said of her plan to handle Sumner’s pressure. Sumner had a chance to tie the game just before halftime after BasehorLinwood freshman Raeny Seaton was called for a push to the back on Marlen Aguilera, setting up a penalty kick. Steeling herself in goal, senior keeper Ellen Farris watched as Aguilera’s shot sailed over the crossbar, taking with it Sumner’s chance as wrestling away momentum before the break. With that, the Bobcats looked to recharge after a slow first-half start. “I thought we kind of came out overconfident,” Mazeitis said. “I felt like in the second half we certainly dominated play.” After stymieing Sumner’s firsttouch drive, Basehor-Linwood ratcheted up its attack early in the second half. Six minutes in, sophomore Hailey Robinson cleared a shot away from the Bobcats’ goal to its inevitable place at the foot of Stephens. The junior took off on a midfield charge down the right side of the field before firing her second goal in the back of Sumner’s net.

“(Robinson) is always very consistent,” Mazeitis said. “She saves our butts quite a bit.” Sumner’s aggressive defense caught up with it with 30 minutes remaining as freshman Helen Venegas collided with Seaton at midfield, earning Venegas a yellow card. The final goal of Stephens’ hat trick came with 22 minutes left to go when a costly error by Sumner — its goalie, Katie Rosas, scooped up a pass that was sent back to her — awarded the Bobcats an indirect touch in front of the goal. The victory reversed the fortunes of seasons not long ago past. Improving its win total and advancing past the first round of regionals were goals on which Mazeitis said the Bobcats placed a premium.

Shawnee (Published in the Shawnee Dispatch, Wednesday, May 16, 2012) CITY OF SHAWNEE NOTICE OF INTENT TO REQUEST RELEASE OF FUNDS

The City of Shawnee certifies to the Office of Housing and Urban Development that Jeff Meyers in his capacity as Mayor consents to accept the jurisdiction of the Federal Courts if an action is brought to enforce responsibilities in relation to the environmental review process and that these responsibilities have been satisfied. The Office of Housing and Urban Developmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s approval of the certification satisfies its responsibilities under NEPA and related laws and authorities and allows the City of Shawnee to use HUD program funds. OBJECTIONS TO RELEASE OF FUNDS The Office of Housing and Urban Development will accept objections to its release of funds and the City of Shawneeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s certification for a period of fifteen days following the anticipated submission date or its actual receipt of the request (whichever is later) only if they are on one of the following bases: (a) the certification was not executed by the Certifying Officer of the City of Shawnee; (b) the City of Shawnee has omitted a step or failed to make a decision or finding required by HUD regulations at 24 CFR part 58; (c) the grant recipient or other participants in the development process have committed funds or incurred costs not authorized by 24 CFR Part 58 before approval of a release of funds by the Office of Housing and Urban Development; or (d) another Federal agency acting pursuant to 40 CFR Part 1504 has submitted a written finding that the project is unsatisfactory from the standpoint of environmental quality. Objections must be prepared and submitted in accordance with the required procedures (24 CFR Part 58, Sec. 58.76) and shall be addressed to the Office of Housing and Urban Development Kansas City office at 400 State Avenue Gateway Tower II, Kansas City, Kansas 66101. Potential objectors should contact HUD/State to verify the actual last day of the objection period. Jeff Meyers, Mayor
