Newest Habitat house in the works By SCOTT AUST

An exuberant Isaac Jimenez wrapped his arms around friends and family Saturday morning, his excitement growing by the minute as he watched the walls of his family’s new home begin to take shape on Fifth Street in Garden City. “It’s awesome,” the 10-year-old fifth-grader at Bernadine Sitts Intermediate Center said. “We’ll get our own bedrooms.” More than 40 volunteers came to help work on what will be the new family home for the Veronica and Luis Jimenez family and their seven sons, Luis, Jr., Isaac, Ismael, Ezequiel, Israel, Uriel and Emanuel, who range in age from 12 years old to 8 months. The home also will be the seventh Habitat for Humanity home built in Garden City. “We are overwhelmed with the volunteers we have today,” Bev Miller, Garden City Habitat for Humanity, said. “We have more than expected. That’s what Garden City’s about. We have a wonderful community, and we are so excited with everybody who’s here.” Shawna Deal, with the Finney County Young Professionals, said her organization tries to do something in the community every couple of months. Volunteering to help on Saturday was probably the group’s biggest project since it formed in 2006. “We try to get in and help whenever we can,” she said. “It just feels good. It feels good to see the family over there, and to see everyone pitching in. We feel good about that.” The excitement carried over to Isaac, who told anyone who asked how much he is looking forward to having a room of his own. His mom, Veronica Jimenez, explained that Isaac and his See Habitat, Page A5
WASHINGTON (AP) — A raucous public debate over the nation’s flawed immigration system is set to begin in earnest this week as senators finalize a bipartisan bill to secure the border, allow tens of thousands of foreign workers into the country and grant eventual citizenship to the estimated 11 million people living here illegally. Already negotiators are cautioning of struggles ahead for an issue that’s defied resolution for years. An immigration deal came close on the Senate floor in 2007 but collapsed amid interest group bickering and an angry public backlash. “There will be a great deal of unhappiness about this proposal because everybody didn’t get what they wanted,” Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., a leader of the eight senators negotiating the legislation, said. “There are entrenched positions on both sides of this issue.” “There’s a long road,” said Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., appearing alongside McCain on CBS’ “Face the Nation.” “There are people on both sides who are against this bill, and they will be able to shoot at it.” Schumer, McCain and their “Gang of Eight” already missed a self-imposed deadline to have their bill ready in March, but Schumer said he hopes that this week, it will happen. “All of us have said that there will be no agreement until the eight of us agree to a big, specific bill, but hopefully we can get that done by the end of the week,” said Schumer. Schumer, McCain and other negotiators are trying to avoid mistakes of the past. A painstaking deal reached a week ago knit together traditional enemies, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the AFL-CIO, in an accord over a new low-skilled worker program. The proposal would allow up to 200,000 workers a year into the county to fill jobs in construction, hospitality, nursing homes and other areas where employers say they have a difficult time hiring Americans. The negotiators also have pledged to move the bill through the Senate Judiciary Committee and onto the floor according to what’s known in Senate jargon as “regular order,” trying to head off complaints from conservatives that the legislation is being rammed through. A deal on immigration is a top second-term priority for President Obama, and his senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer said Sunday that the bill being developed in the Senate is consistent with Obama’s approach — even though the Senate plan would tie border security to a path to citizenship in a manner Obama administration officials have criticized.
Villarreal leads by example with Relay for Life Sunflower team captain hopes to get more involved in fundraising. By RACHAEL GRAY
If you don’t have money, you can always donate time. That’s the way Erica Villarreal, a Relay for Life volunteer, sees it. Villarreal is the team captain for the Sunflower Power Electric Corp. Relay for Life team, and is the team development chair for Finney County
Relay for Life. She also works with Sunflower employees to encourage them to become involved in United way. Villarreal, the supply chain administrative assistant for Sunflower, is hoping to get others involved in Relay for Life as more teams are needed to meet the county’s goal of raising $100,000 toward the fight against cancer. So far, the organization raised about $20,000. The annual Relay for Life

This is the first year I’ve been the team development chair. It’s just a group I wanted to be a part of,” she said. Villarreal believes in the mission of Relay for Life. “I joined Relay because I think it’s a great organization. It helps save people’s lives.

S. Korea: North may be preparing to test SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — A top South Korean national security official said Sunday that North Korea may be setting the stage for a missile test or another provocative act with its warning that it soon will be unable to guarantee diplomats’ safety in Pyongyang. But he added that the North’s clearest objective is to extract concessions from Washington and Seoul. North Korea’s warning last week followed weeks of war threats and other efforts to punish South Korea and the U.S. for ongoing joint military drills, and for their support of U.N. sanctions over Pyongyang’s Feb. 12 nuclear test. Many nations are deciding what to do about the notice, which said their diplomats’ safety in Pyongyang cannot be guaranteed beginning this Wednesday. Tensions between Seoul and Pyongyang led South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff to announce Sunday that its chairman had put off a visit to Washington. The South Korean defense minister said Thursday that North Korea had moved a missile with “considerable range” to its east coast, possibly to conduct a test launch. His description suggests that the missile could be the Musudan missile, capable of striking American bases in Guam with its estimated range of up to 4,000 kilometers (2,490 miles). Citing North Korea’s suggestion that diplomats leave the country, South Korean President Park Geun-hye’s national security director said Pyongyang may be planning a missile launch or another provocation around Wednesday, according to presidential spokeswoman Kim Haing. During a meeting with other South Korean officials, the official, Kim Jang-Soo, also said the notice to diplomats and other recent North Korean actions are an attempt to stoke security concerns and to force South Korea and the U.S. to offer a dialogue.

Seoul want North Korea to resume the six-party nuclear talks — which also include China, Russia and Japan — that it abandoned in 2009. The roughly two dozen countries with embassies in North Korea had not yet announced whether they would evacuate their staffs. British Foreign Secretary William Hague suggested that North Korea’s comments about foreign diplomats are “consistent” with a regime that is using the prospect of an external threat to justify its militarization to its people. “I haven’t seen any immediate need to respond to that by moving our diplomats out of there,” he told the BBC on Saturday. “We will keep this under close review with our allies, but we shouldn’t respond and play to that rhetoric and that presentation of an external threat every time they come out with it.” Germany said its embassy in Pyongyang would stay open for at least the time being. “The situation there is tense but calm,” a German Foreign Office official, who declined to be named in line with department pol-
icy, said in an email. “The security and danger of the situation is constantly being evaluated. The different international embassies there are in close touch with each other.” Indonesia’s foreign affairs ministry said it was considering a plan to evacuate its diplomats. A statement released by the ministry on Saturday said that its embassy in Pyongyang has been preparing a contingency plan to anticipate the worst-case scenario, and that the Indonesian foreign minister is communicating with the staff there to monitor the situation. India also said it was monitoring events. “We have been informed about it,” said Syed Akbaruddin, spokesman for India’s external affairs ministry. “We are in constant touch with our embassy and are monitoring the situation. We will carefully consider all aspects and decide well in time.” Seoul and Washington, which lack diplomatic relations with the North, are taking the threats seriously, though they say they have seen no signs that Pyongyang is preparing for a large-scale attack.

Area Briefs Fire damages two Tribune homes By The Hutchinson News TRIBUNE — Fire swept through two homes in downtown Tribune early Saturday morning as firefighters fought the blaze in 30 mph winds. The fire began about 1 a.m. in the home of Sergio and Alicia Villalobos, 615 Second St., according to a press release from Greeley County Sheriff Mark Rine. The couple and all of their family escaped safely. While fire units from Greeley and Wichita Counties responded, they were hindered by strong northwest winds. The fire spread to the neighboring home of Loretta Stone. Everyone in that home also escaped safely. Greeley County Fire Chief Don Henson did not have estimates on the dollar loss caused by the fire, but he said the Villalobos home was a total loss and the Stone home received extensive damage. Preliminary investigation showed the fire started in the carport on the south side of the Villalobos home, Henson said.

TV station responds to need in southwest Kansas By JOHN GREEN
Special to The Telegram
SUBLETTE — Brian Adams fondly recalls while growing up in the Sublette area visiting his aunt at a television studio in the small community and watching production of a local news or talk show. After returning to the area as an adult, he quickly noticed that local programming is missing. “They used to produce a lot of local shows, where you could tune in every day at noon or in the morning and see what was going on in southwest Kansas,” Adams said. “There hasn’t been anything locally produced since the 1990s. It all comes out of Wichita.” The need for locally produced news, however, remains, Adams said. “I thought someone ought to fix that problem,” he said. “Then when the FCC opened a window (on obtaining new television licenses), I scratched my head and decided I’d be the one to fix it. So I applied and was granted the license.” That was three years ago, and
Adams, founder of High Plains Broadcasting LLC, has been working since to get stations built and online. Last week, Adams announced that the last of five digital transmitters is up and working, offering a variety of viewing options for western Kansans. “Some viewers have discovered our signal on the air already,” Adams said. As a digital station, KDGLTV23 programs can be viewed only with a digital TV, or with an Analog TV using a digital converter box. It is necessary to rescan the TV or converter box to receive the new signal. Available over the air for free, it carries six channels in the digital stream, reaching households without “rabbit ears” within a 10mile radius, and those with external antennas up to 40 miles outside of Sublette, Liberal, Dodge City, Garden City and Ulysses. With the stations online, Adams says he’s now working to develop the local programming and hopes to have it airing by summer or fall. Adams, whose primary business is building and leasing two-
way radio towers, contracted out construction of the station towers and infrastructure, but still found himself occasionally atop the towers in a stiff western Kansas breeze “when the tower crew said they needed one more hand.” “I imagine people thought we were crazy,” he said. Sublette has the main studio and control facility, with the signal generated there relayed to repeater stations at the other locales. All of the current programming is pre-packaged network programming, but Adams is now working on building a studio for local production. “I’m not sure if the first thing will be a morning or noon show,” he said, “but we’ll rerun things at different time slots during the day. I’ve got a guy in Liberal who’s very interested in hosting the show, at whatever time. It will start out as more a variety talk show, with a light amount of local news, weather, and what’s going on in the area.” Though based in Sublette, local programming won’t focus only on Sublette, Adams said. “We’ll look at all those around
— Meade and Hugoton and Lakin — all the little towns in between,” he said. “Take a circle around Sublette out for 60 or 70 miles and I’m interested in anything going on in those communities.” He’ll look at other program possibilities after he launches the first program, Adams said. “We probably really need an ag program,” he said. “That’s the number one thing people ask for, is an ag program in the morning. That will probably be the next block of programming.” He’d also like to offer local sports coverage. “In the long run,” he said, “I really want to get into news.” As for future station expansion, Adams said that will depend on the FCC. “We won’t be able to ever add more transmission until they add more windows for filing,” he said. “With the broadband spectrum crisis being talked about by broadband carriers, this may be one of the last stations to file for in this area. You never know. It was 10 years before this window that they allowed the previous filing, and 10 years ago it was all analog.”

Abortion opponents discuss shift in tactics to maintain changes
TOPEKA (AP) — Kansas has enacted a wave of stricter abortion laws in the two-plus years Republican Gov. Sam Brownback has been in office, but those successes have led abortion opponents to discuss changing their tactics, unsure about what initiatives they’ll pursue next. Thirty-two Kansas House members are sponsoring a proposed ban on most abortions as soon as a fetal heartbeat can be detected, which can occur as early as the sixth week of pregnancy, and the idea has the backing of the antiabortion group Operation Rescue. Nine of those House members also were sponsors of a previous “personhood” amendment to the state constitution aimed at banning

all abortions, declaring that the constitution protects the rights of individual starting at fertilization. Kansas not only bans most abortions starting at the 22nd week of pregnancy, but also restricts private health insurance coverage for elective abortions and offers strong legal protections for health care workers who don’t want to be involved in terminating pregnancies. Kansans for Life, the most influential anti-abortion group at the Statehouse, has encouraged lawmakers to pursue such changes. It argues that a steady, metered approach is more effective than enacting headline-grabbing measures that will be challenged in court.
But with last week’s approval of more anti-abortion legislation, now an annual event in Kansas, legislators who’ve voted for every measure in recent years wonder whether the incremental-change tactic has run its course. “There are a growing number of legislators who want to explore the practicality of moving toward fetal heartbeat as opposed to the incremental approach,” said Rep. Steve Brunk, a Wichita Republican and a sponsor of that measure. The discussions are likely to continue after lawmakers finish the year’s business in May. Lawmakers who oppose abortions hold at least two-thirds majorities in both chambers, and abortion rights backers have no
hope of stopping any legislation if abortion opponents are united. Kansas’ new legislation stops short of measures passed recently in other states — Arkansas banning most abortions after the 12th week of pregnancy, and North Dakota prohibiting abortions as early as the sixth week. But Elise Higgins, a lobbyist for the National Organization of Women’s state chapter said, “We’re close on their heels.” Abortion rights supporters, including NOW and the American Civil Liberties Union, are frustrated because they see a larger, not-quite-hidden goal of banning all abortions and even limiting access to some forms of birth control.

Attack abuse Prevention programs warrant adequate support from state.
sea of blue pinwheels has materialized along Kansas Avenue in Garden City and other places in the state — all part of a campaign designed to heighten awareness of ways to combat child abuse. The Kansas Children’s Service League (KCSL), which serves as the Prevent Child Abuse America chapter for Kansas, said the blue pinwheels were planted in various locations to represent the effort to change how communities nationwide address child abuse. Specifically, it’s a way to heighten awareness of prevention fostered by community activiDoes the state of Kansas do ties and public enough to provide resourcpolicies. es needed to combat child The effort abuse?

While youngsters often get bumps and bruises through everyday play, wounds to their stomach, cheeks, ears, buttocks, mouth or thighs, as well as black eyes, human bite marks, and circular burns the size of a cigarette point to something more serious. The Kansas Attorney General’s Office urges anyone who suspects a problem to call the Kansas Protection Report Center at (800) 922-5330. Addressing the problem of child abuse also means providing sufficient resources to help at-risk families. KCSL knows children need healthy, nurturing homes. Home visits, parent education, mental health services, convenient and affordable day care and substance abuse treatment all aid in the prevention of child abuse and neglect — and are areas where funding cuts make no sense at any level. Studies show every dollar invested in such programs saves $7 that would be spent on problems down the line. When parents have the knowledge, skills and resources needed to care for their children, their families and communities become stronger. Good programs and interventions can be lifesavers, especially in a state that every year sees about 300 infants die due to various reasons. In a poor economy, the stress on families too often leads to the mistreatment of children. Rather than scaling back assistance, it’s necessary to recognize programs that work and expose them to as many at-risk families as possible. The cycle of violence that starts with abuse of a child exacts a painful, far-reaching toll on communities. We can’t afford to look the other way.

More targets for conservatives S
ince incumbent Republicans are in favor of gay marriage, it’s clear — gays are out. Recently Senator Rob Portman (ROhio) and Senator Mark Kirk (R-Illinois) have endorsed marriage equality. LGBTs are no longer that group Republicans can win elections by promising to keep them away from us. The GOP swore to protect marriage and on their watch the altar was altered anyway. Now the party of Lincoln is gayfriendly, or at least not as successfully gay-hostile. Also, Latinos can no longer be characterized as an invading force hell bent on killing us all (remember “the fajita flu?”). Self-deportation, a Republican policy idea to make this country so unpleasant for people who appear to be Mexican that they leave, has attempted to self-deport since Republicans figured out Latinos are also votantes (voters). They are now reaching out to Latinos or as Senator Rand Paul said at the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, “I am a fan of Gabriel Garcia Marquez.” With no more gays and Latinos to kick around, who’s next? I’m guessing Republicans are not going to run on sound public policy ideas. It’s not that I’ve become cynical watching the Grand Old Party gain ground by telling minority groups to get off their lawn. It’s just that I’m a realist. Republicans have enjoyed the fruits of the Southern strategy (aka the art of blaming “the others”) — it’s not easy to just turn that off. Who’s next? Perhaps people on food stamps: currently one-fifth of the country.
Conservatives have already shown a healthy disdain for people who receive any government aid but reserve special scorn for those on food stamps. About 47.8 million Americans are on the program. During the election, presidential candidate Newt Gingrich said, “The AfricanAmerican community should demand paychecks and not be satisfied with food stamps.” People on the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program are at an all-time high because, well, poverty is at an all-time high. Who’s easier to raise your voice at than the voiceless? I mean, the working-impoverished should be clever enough to ask their parent’s for a loan, right? Republicans should be licking their chops to get a bite out of America’s hungry. But let’s not forget children on welfare! Tennessee lawmakers have floated a bill to deduct 30 percent of benefits from families on Temporary Assistance for Needy Families if children don’t get good grades. These kids are getting free school plus a whopping $185 a month for their family to live on?! The poor kid in school everyone picked on for wearing the same sweater every day? Up till now they’ve had it too easy. They could be crowned the Republican’s new welfare queen! Don’t forget nonChristians! North Carolina Republicans have introduced
a bill saying the part of the First Amendment specifying the state shouldn’t establish a religion doesn’t apply to them. The bill reads: “Each state in the union is sovereign and may independently determine how that state may make laws respecting an establishment of religion.” An official state religion? Why has no one thought to do this before?! Why has no one looked at Saudi Arabia and thought, “This place is great! We should make North Carolina more like it!” But since Americans have made the mistake of letting Buddhists, Hindus, Atheists, Muslims, Jews and Scientologists live here, now they can redeem themselves by letting the GOP malign them to turn out the Republican base. I’m sure there are many more for Republicans to choose from. Hatred of the French is cyclical. Scientists have an annoying way of disagreeing with Republicans. “Sluts” should also get at least an honorable mention as a potential group. Since conservatives have been against certain kinds of marriages, single mothers have gotten a pass. They could make a comeback. But as long as Republicans don’t stand for anything other than freedom for corporations, they will need to find a group of people to be their boogieman. Without gays and Latinos, Republicans are just cradling their crosshairs with nothing to point it at. But don’t worry, they’ll find one soon enough.

Another failure on gun control R
arely has the political class whipped itself into a lather that has abated so quickly. After the Newtown, Conn., massacre, so many invested so much hope in President Barack Obama’s pledge to “use whatever power this office holds” to pass new gun-control laws. The president has certainly done his part. He has held rallies. He has used children as props. He has held events with parents of the little victims of Newtown. He has shamed the nation for its alleged forgetfulness over the terrible events of that day. Yet the needle of public opinion is moving the wrong way. CBS News found that support for stricter gun laws dropped from 57 percent to 47 percent, and CNN from 52 percent to 43 percent. The headline on a CNN story on the latest polling was titled “Polls Suggest Congress Might Have Waited Too Long on Gun Control.” It has waited all of four months. But the assault-weapons ban has been deep-sixed by Democrats in the Senate. Same with any limit on the size of magazines. The argument now is all about increasing the reach of background checks, although any bill that can pass Congress will be much less extensive than the president or his supporters would like. The gun-control debate has shown the president again to be hopelessly detached as a legislative mechanic and ineffectual as a shaper of public opinion. Before writing rhetorical checks that his own party’s
majority leader in the Senate, Harry Reid, couldn’t cash, the president might have at least consulted with the wily old son of a gun about what was plausible and adjusted accordingly. It is true that 90 percent of Americans support universal background checks. Who can be against background checks? Heck, even the National Rifle Association wants states to keep more complete records of who is forbidden from purchasing guns. But it gets complicated quickly when you try to control almost every transfer of a gun. Sen. Chuck Schumer’s current version of the bill would forbid a “temporary transfer” to a friend for target shooting if the range is not “owned or occupied by a duly incorporated organization organized for conservation purposes or to foster proficiency in firearms.” Got it? Surely, we can figure out a way to do more at gun shows. But despite the obsession with them, gun shows are beside the point. According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, “In 1997, among state inmates possessing a gun, fewer than 2 percent bought their firearm at a flea market or gun show, about 12 percent from a retail store or pawnshop and 80 percent
from family, friends, a street buy or an illegal source.” Gun control always founders on the paradox that it is possible to write new laws for the law-abiding but difficult or impossible to reach criminals who don’t care about laws. Michigan has required a permit to purchase a handgun since 1927. The rule has evidently made no impression on those bent on doing harm to others in Detroit or Flint. The gun-control debate has subtly shifted away from Newtown even though the president keeps bringing his case back to that atrocity. Nothing that happened in Newtown had anything to do with background checks. No background-check law will ever prevent someone like Sandy Hook gunman Adam Lanza’s mother from buying guns unless the parents of children with autismlike symptoms are to be banned from owning firearms. The president’s push for new gun laws looks, at this juncture, like a complete fizzle. He has failed to sway red-state Democrats and failed to maintain the heightened public support for new gun-control laws. The most concrete effect of his advocacy has been, if the anecdotal evidence is to be believed, to stoke increased gun purchases on fears that the government wants to ban guns. He set out to lead a great crusade for gun control and ended up the best friend the gun industry ever had.

n a seemingly minor bill to exempt for-profit health clubs from property taxes, Kansans have found that a legislative skirmish over a tax break can make for good drama. For members of the media, who struggle to make tax issues interesting to the average reader or viewer, Senate Bill 72 was a gift. As word circulated in late March that the Kansas Senate had passed the bill, what the law would do and who would benefit, stunned taxpayers were in thrall to a news story about this one tax break among many. What, Kansans asked, were senators thinking when they voted to single out health clubs for special treatment? During a legislative session when the governor says the state can’t afford to keep its promise to let a sales tax expire, how could any lawmaker believe it was in the public interest to take health clubs off the property tax rolls? Yet when the vote was taken in late March, 25 senators supported the tax break. Significantly, Rodney Steven, the Wichita health club magnate whose crusade this is, donated a total of $45,000 to the campaigns of 24 senators, just four of whom voted against the bill. Although some lawmakers bristled at the suggestion that Stevens’ support had bought those 20 votes, the whiff of a quid pro quo added intrigue to the story. So did Stevens’ claim that he and his fellow health club owners were wronged capitalists, forced to do business on an unlevel playing field. Unlikely villains in this scenario are the YMCAs and YWCAs in some communities where Stevens’ Genesis Health Clubs operate. For-profit health clubs like his are disadvantaged, Stevens claims, because they must compete against entities like the Ys, which don’t pay taxes. Unreckoned in this demonization are the community services provided by such organizations. In Wichita, for example, the YMCA reportedly provided more than $10 million in free or reduced services during 2012. Last year, Steven and his allies had hoped to encourage legislation that would tax nonprofits, a strategy that didn’t pan out. When the health-club bill was introduced this session, it also contained a provision for an exemption from sales taxes, which was stripped from the bill. The sales tax exemption would have reduced state revenues by $3.4 million, whereas the property tax break would cost the state just $200,000. But the real cost of a property tax break like this one isn’t measured at the state level but in local government offices across the state. Taking nearly 200 health clubs off the local property tax rolls would deprive cities and counties of revenue, while school districts, which are most dependent on property taxes, would take the biggest hit. In Leavenworth County alone, the property tax break reportedly would eliminate at least $58,000 in revenue. Statewide, the total likely would be in the millions of dollars. Surprisingly, lawmakers who believe for-profit health clubs are being treated inequitably see a remedy in increasing the burden on homeowners and other local taxpayers. These are the same taxpayers who are funding local recreation facilities, which also are cited as unfair competition for health clubs. It’s unfortunate that health clubs, which raise awareness of the need for fitness and generally are a community asset, sometimes struggle financially. But non-profit health clubs are certainly nothing new and their presence, which a business owner might consider in determining where to locate a club, says something about a community’s actual need for additional for-profit providers. Lawmakers also might consider whether a tax exemption like the one proposed for healthclub businesses would obligate them to offer tax breaks to other for-profit enterprises who perceive competition from nonprofits or government services. But regardless of what, if anything, the House does with the bill, the health club tax break story offered a riveting diversion from the usual news from Topeka.

Neighbors: Villarreal leading by example Continued from Page A1

older brother will get their own bedroom for the first time. Currently, the family lives in a three-bedroom, double-wide mobile home. “It’s small with seven boys,” she said. “We own our mobile home, but it’s small and it needs a lot of work because it’s a ’68.” Jimenez said she knew about the Habitat for Humanity program because her parents also have a Habitat home in Garden City. The program includes an application process and criteria like income and good credit that applicants must meet to be considered. Those chosen also must invest 500 hours of sweat-equity into their new homes, meaning they have to help with the
work on the house. “We received a blessing,” Jimenez said of being chosen to be a Habitat family. Looking at all the volunteers busy at work pounding nails and putting up the walls of the new home, Jimenez said her family also feels blessed by all the support. “We’re very blessed with all these people doing this for us. It’s unbelievable that so many people are willing to volunteer. It’s overwhelming to me that they’re willing to take time out of their lives to come do this for us,” she said. Ground was broken in December for the house, located across the street from Sunnyland Bed and Breakfast. When complete, the 1,200 square-feet, bun-
galow-style home will feature four to five bedrooms and a full basement. After the house is built, Habitat for Humanity determines the cost, including the lot, and provides a 30-year interestfree mortgage to the family. The lot also includes a pre-existing detached garage that will provide the Jimenez clan even more space for their growing family. Veronica joked that she needs a room for herself — a Mom-cave — somewhere in the garage, where she can set up her sewing machine. “I love the location,” she said. “We’ll have access to everything. Our bank is over there, the post office, the hospital. It’s all nearby.”
Lana Christensen, volunteer coordinator for Habitat for Humanity, estimated about 40 volunteers were on site Saturday morning, a day she said also was intended to honor the memory of Dave Sweley, the founder of Garden City’s Habitat for Humanity who died March 14. Christensen said Garden City’s Habitat for Humanity started 16 years ago, and the first house was built about 11 years ago. Christensen said volunteers will continue working on the house every Saturday from about 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. until it’s finished, a process that typically takes about a year. To volunteer labor, either show up at 502 N. Fifth St. on Saturdays or call Christensen at 275-1169.
Airline passenger complaints surge in 2012 WASHINGTON (AP) — Airline passengers are getting grumpier, and it’s little wonder. Airlines keep shrinking the size of seats to stuff more people onto planes, those empty middle seats that once provided a little more room are now occupied and more people with
tickets are being turned away because flights are overbooked. Private researchers who analyzed federal data on airline performance also said in a report being released Monday that consumer complaints to the Department of Transportation surged by one-fifth last year even
though other measures such as on-time arrivals and mishandled baggage show airlines are doing a better job. “The way airlines have taken 130-seat airplanes and expanded them to 150 seats to squeeze out more revenue I think is finally catching up with them,” said Dean Headley, a business
professor at Wichita State University who has co-written the annual report for 23 years. “People are saying, ‘Look, I don’t fit here. Do something about this.’ At some point airlines can’t keep shrinking seats to put more people into the same tube,” he said.
Southwest Community Duplicate bridge The Garden City Duplicate Bridge Club played a 25-board Howell movement April 1, splitting 15 games, with suits up by one while one slam succeeded. Competition for first place made the margin thin as Mark and Jody Neuman challenged for the win, but a half-point extra eked out by May Craig and Jon Kempton sealed their top spot with a 62.5 percent game. Regular games begin at 7 p.m. Monday and 1:15 p.m. Tuesday at the Senior Center of Finney County, 907 N. 10th St., plus sanctioned games start at 2 p.m. Sunday, with all bridge players welcome. For partners, call Kempton at 276-2876.

DAR meeting The William Wilson Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution met March 20 at Garden Valley Retirement Village, 1505 E. Spruce St. Dixie Drake presented the program “Madonna of the Trail.” The president general’s message was given by Kathryn Turley. Sandra Black gave the national defense message. The KSDAR slate of officers for 2013 to 2016 and proposed bylaws changes for the Continental Congress were announced. Regent Carley Hazelton reported that the Chapter Achievement was submitted Jan. 17 and the e-Master Questionnaire was submitted Jan. 28. Drake reported on
the Charles O. Stones fifth-grade essays for the American History contest. She noted that a pizza party will be held for the class. She also reported that Madison Witzke has applied for the DAR scholarship. Names for the William Wilson scholarship are due this month. The chapter voted to present a medal and certificate to the outstanding JROTC student at Garden City High School. A Nominating Committee was appointed, consisting of Sandra Black, Luetta Engler and Ellen Eichhorn. Turley, Black and Cathaleen Cooper make up the Audit Committee. Election of officers will take place this month. The chapter regent’s report for state conference was submitted. The next meeting will begin at 1:30 p.m. April 17 at Garden Valley Retirement Village. Turley will present the program “The Unsinkable Eight.”

by this disease. And I’m naturally a helper, so anything I can do to help anyone in the smallest way, that’s important to me,” she said. Villarreal said the American Cancer Society has provided 175 services to 107 cancer patients within the last year in Finney County. The American Cancer Society funds cancer research, has a 24-hour hotline and works with lawmakers to help pass laws to help defeat cancer, she said. The American Cancer Society also has a loan closet in Illusions Salon, 414 N. Main St., where patients can get wigs. Villarreal said it takes time and organization to be a volunteer, but it’s worth it. “It does take time, effort and planning to be involved. But when you see how much the American Cancer Society is helping in Finney County, it’s all worth it,” she said. Villarreal stresses that every little bit helps Relay for Life, whether it’s time or money. “If you can’t give financially, we’re always looking for volunteers and manpower — that’s another way you can give,” she said. Villarreal said teams range from just a few friends to company-wide teams. “You can give back by leading your own fundraisers and raising that way, by forming a team,” she said. Villarreal’s team has done bake sales, a burrito sale, and has worked with Mooyah’s to get a percentage donated to Relay for Life. Every other Thursday, Mooyah’s donates proceeds to Relay for Life. They also sell supportive and memorial luminaries and are selling a cookbook. At the team captain meetings, she leads the
meetings, tries to recruit more teams and answers questions about fundraising and the event. “I also help keep the team captains motivated,” she said. Villareal said Relay for Life needs more teams. “We have 16 right now, and we’re trying to get more. Any group of people can join — family, friends, churches, co-workers — you only need a few people. There’s no minimum or limit,” she said. Villarreal is proud of what Relay for Life has done so far in Finney County. “Since we started in 1997, Finney County Relay for Life has raised over $1 million as of last year,” she said. In addition to her career and volunteering, Villarreal is also the mother of Zoe, 5, and Mia, 1. She’s married to Johnny Villarreal. In order to balance it all, she stays organized and communicates with her family. “I’d say the best way to balance everything is to have a plan. Everyone in the family knows what is going on and when,” she said. She’s also working on her master’s of business administration through Friends University. Villarreal counts on Johnny to help her out. “My husband is really supportive. He stays home with the kids when I have meetings and fundraising. He actually comes with me to my events and supports me that way,” she said. Villarreal puts her family first. “I would say family comes first, but we’ve all got a little time to give,” she said.

Life Changes My Dear Patients: It has been a difficult decision, but I am going to be closing my practice as of the 24th of May, 2013. There are a number of changes in the demands on my time. I try to live my life according to God’s direction, and feel that the time has come to dedicate more time and effort to our Mission in Honduras, Central America. I have been struggling with trying to give enough time to both patients here and in Honduras. With new programs that are being initiated in Honduras, it has now come to a place where I can not do justice to both full-time clinic here, and Blumenschein Clinic there, and so must choose. It has been a sincere pleasure and honor that you have let me be a part of your lives. I have shared in the joy of expanding your families through birth, adoption, and foster parenting. I have shared your pain in the loss of loved ones to age, disease, and accidents. I have had the privilege of working with you for better health, combating acute and chronic diseases. All of this through the years has brought such great meaning and fulfillment to my life. It is beyond words! However, I find that I need to devote more and more time in organizing medical student rotations, fund raising, and establishing clinical guidelines for the Honduran clinic. The Blumenschein Clinic in La Buena Fe, Honduras is and has been the only health care available to these poverty stricken people since 1957. Due to these issues, my time is being pulled in too many directions to sustain all my work. It is with great sadness that I will be leaving my full-time practice with Plaza Medical Center. I will be happy to see you through my May 24th departure. I will try to assist you in transitioning or you may stop by the Plaza Medical business office and they will help you to arrange for a new health care provider. Your records are, of course, available upon request.

Time for divorced man to move past recent relationship Dear Annie: I am a 44-year-old guy who wears his heart on his sleeve. I met “Lisa” two years ago. I was fresh out of a divorce. Lisa was in terrible shape. Her mother had just died, and shortly after, she lost her fiance in a traffic accident. Then she moved back home to take care of her ailing father. It was love at first sight for me. But Lisa never fully grieved over her fiance. She told me he was her “soul mate,” and that she would never love another man the way she loved him. I told her I have all the patience in the world and would be there for her through her grief and sorrow. I knew she needed to deal with this in her own way, which included getting his name
tattooed on her back. Again, I was patient and understanding. Lisa’s family began inviting me to their home. But her family had been exceptionally close to her fiance and began posting things on Facebook to remind Lisa of him. It finally reached the point where I had to say something, and I talked to Lisa’s cousin. I said posting such things keeps the fiance’s memory fresh in Lisa’s mind, which doesn’t help her heal. I asked the cousin to please get the family to stop doing this. Well, my request got back to Lisa, who became hostile and negative toward me. She broke things off. Annie, I love Lisa with every ounce of my being. Was I wrong to speak up?
Does safety stop step stools? Dear Readers: Here is this week’s SOUND OFF, on the lack of step stools in public restrooms: “I know sometimes people write to you to air their grievances. My gripe is about public restrooms -- specifically the lack of step stools. My children are 5 and 7, and since they’ve been old enough to have a need to stand at a sink and wash their hands, I’ve faced this problem. I’m talking about places where children are ‘welcomed’ or at the very least expected: family chain restaurants, kid-specific arcade-style restaurants, ballparks and amusement parks, just to name a few.

It’s also likely that she will always connect you to this unfortunate time. Please move on. This ship has sailed. Dear Annie: I am an
adopted 14-year-old and an only child. I would like to get in touch with my biological family. Everybody tells me to wait until I am 18, but I feel I should be able to contact at least one biological parent. From what my adoptive mom tells me, I have an older brother. I was also told that my parents tried to find my biological father, but out of the five names listed on the adoption papers, none of them matched. Is there any way to contact my family? Even if I can’t find my mom, is there a way I could find my brother and speak with him? — Adopted in Arizona Dear Arizona: Please do not do this without the support of your family. Finding biological
parents and siblings is not always the joyful reunion you dream of, and sometimes things don’t turn out well. It also can be hurtful to your adoptive parents if your relationship with them is undergoing changes, as it often does during the teen years, and you think your biological family will be “better.” There is a reason reputable organizations insist that you be 18 or older to search. Please ask your parents for help with the International Soundex Reunion Registry (isrr.org). Dear Annie: “Pining for Rome” complains, “The foods and pastimes that I’ve become fond of are nonexistent in America.” Nonsense. Granted, she may not see
games of bocce ball going on in the local park or find abbacchio brodettato on the menu at Denny’s, but in this global world, all the things available in Rome are available in the USA. She can go to an Italian market, buy a good Italian cookbook and learn to make gallina alla vernaccia herself. Many Italian markets also sell bocce ball sets, so she could start her own games. — Second-Generation Italian
DEAR DR. ROACH: In the past year and a half, I have experienced several changes in my health. My hands and feet are increasing in size. I am lightheaded, fainting on occasion. I am gaining weight. My hormone levels are falling outside the normal ranges. After numerous blood tests, MRIs and CT scans, my endocrinologist has diagnosed me with a condition called acromegaly due to a non-cancerous growth on my pituitary gland. He is recommending surgery to remove the tumor, with medications to follow if the surgery is not totally successful. Can you give me any additional
information on this condition and any recommendations for treatment? — L.B. Y o u r endocri- TO YOUR nologist GOOD HEALTH has gotten everything exactly right. Acromegaly is caused Roach, M.D. by excess Keith North America Syndicate amounts of human growth hormone, normally made by the pituitary gland, and most commonly caused by a benign tumor of that gland. Diagnosis is made by laboratory testing and is confirmed by the MRI. It affects many systems
of the body, some of which you’ve already noticed. Bones try to grow, but in adults the growth plate is fused, so the only bones that can grow are in the skull and face, with prominent jaw and cheekbones, especially if, as is often the case, diagnosis is not immediate. Changes in the cartilage and joints make the hands and feet swollen, and fractures are common. Vitamin D deficiency is also common. Weight gain puts people with acromegaly at high risk for diabetes and sleep apnea, and these need to be looked for. Sex hormones are usually decreased in
both men and women, and this also may need treatment. Colon polyps are more likely, and a colonoscopy is recommended at diagnosis. You mentioned lightheadedness, which can be caused by the hormonal changes, but also by several kinds of heart abnormalities that can accompany acromegaly. An echocardiogram is likely to be recommended by your physicians. Treatment of the tumor can be with medicines or surgery. The decision of which is best is complicated and requires more extensive knowledge about your specific situation.

DAY IN THE STARS
Jacquelline Bigar King Features
The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult ARIES (March 21-April 19) HHHH By midafternoon, you simply can’t be stopped. A change of pace often energizes you. What you can accomplish in a few hours might surprise many people. A discussion will be directed from the perspective of the other party. Tonight: The world is your oyster. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHH Use the morning for a meeting or getting an important errand done. Once that matter is handled, you’ll feel more relaxed and perhaps like a different person. You might want to stop to do some research or return calls. Tonight: If you need some time to yourself, just say so. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHH Keep reaching out to someone at a distance. You could be overwhelmed by everything that is falling into your lap. You must handle certain matters directly, but you can delegate different projects to others. You need time to think through a decision. Tonight: Chat with a friend. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHH Are you feeling burdened by everything you have to handle? Detach first, and then take a look at a different way of handling this overload of responsibilities. Organization and prioritizing might be essential, but don’t hesitate to ask for some much-needed help. Tonight: Up late. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHH Spend the morning dealing with a situation that keeps getting postponed. By midafternoon, you could feel as if your spirit is free -- you’ll be open to trying anything, within reason. A discussion points to many different opportunities to choose from. Tonight: Go for the moment. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHH You might be tired of not having a stronger influence in a conversation. Decide how to proceed in regard to enlarging your role in your present situation. When you are able to accomplish this, others will appreciate your feedback. Tonight: Dinner for two.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHH Get as much done as possible by midafternoon. You will have an important discussion with a loved one or an associate. Understand what would make you happy. You very well could be just a few steps from realizing exactly that. Tonight: Follow someone else’s suggestion. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHH Tap into your creativity in the morning. One idea builds from another, and so on. You will come up with a workable solution given some time. Focus on a certain key task or project in the afternoon. You still might gain a new perspective. Tonight: Put your feet up and relax. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHH You could be trying too hard to be reasonable, which prevents others from experiencing the excitement of your spontaneity. Being more authentic could move a situation along faster. Later today, your creativity will merge with your impulsiveness. Tonight: Keep it light. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHHH Ask your follow-up questions. You will come out ahead of a situation and be fully aware of what needs to happen. Your sense of humor helps ease your path, as well as others’. Stick with a certain perspective, and share it with others. Tonight: Head home early, if possible. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHH A quick look at your finances tells you what the problem might be. Discuss the issue with someone in the know. You will know what to do in the afternoon, though you might choose to get different opinions. Only you can decide what would be most effective. Tonight: Join a friend. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHH You are in your element in the morning. Others respond to your requests. By late afternoon, you might decide to be a little more indulgent. Understand if a friend or loved one can’t join you immediately. Tonight: Do some shopping on the way home.

THE GARDEN CITY TELEGRAM
MONDAY, April 8, 2013
Shockers come up empty late ATLANTA (AP) — Russ Smith looked at the scoreboard, then at the clock, then over at the bench. Louisville needed a run, but he had no idea where it was going to come from. The starters were struggling, the fouls were piling up and the only lift injured Kevin Ware could give the top-seeded Cardinals was an emotional one. “It was like, ‘Man,”’ Smith said. “I was actually waiting for our run. And it happened. Luke exploded. That was actually what I was waiting for.
Then Chane exploded. Then Peyton made a big layup. Then Tim Henderson. It just kept going and going.” And Louisville rode it all the way to the title game. Luke Hancock scored 20 points off the bench, Henderson sparked a secondhalf rally with a pair of monster 3s and Louisville reminded everyone it can grind it out, too, advancing to the NCAA title game Saturday night after escaping with a 72-68 victory over Wichita State. Louisville will play
Louisville’s Luke Hancock vies for a loose ball against Wichita State’s Ron Baker (31) during the first half of the NCAA Final Four semifinal game Saturday in Atlanta.
Michigan, a 61-56 winner over Syracuse, for the national title Monday night. The Cardinals (34-5) have had this game in their sights since losing to Kentucky in last year’s Final Four, and they got added motivation after Ware’s tibia snapped during last weekend’s Midwest Regional final, the bone poking through the skin. Ware was on his feet when the final buzzer sounded, grinning and throwing his arms into the air. See Late, Page A12
Struggle at the Dunes Buffs’ golfers finish 7th in 11-team field; Swender makes top 10 medalist list. By BRETT MARSHALL
When Walker Frey assumed the coaching duties of the Garden City High School boys golf team less than two months ago, he knew he had a major reconstruction job with the Buffaloes’ program. That was due in part to the Buffs losing all but one of their varsity golfers from 2012. On Saturday, playing in their own invitational at Buffalo Dunes as well as their season opener, the Buffs struggled mightily on the wind-swept links layout. The Buffs tied for seventh with Western Athletic Conference opponent Great Bend with a 367 (four scores count of six players) but earned the higher team place with a lower fifth score. Junior Austin Swender, the lone returner for the Buffs, also was the only GCHS golfer to break 85, finishing with an 83, which placed him in a tie for ninth in the individual standings. Dodge City, favored once again in the WAC as well as in Class 6A, fired a steady 316 to win by 21 shots over Hutchinson, which was at 337 and Hays High at 339. Derby and Maize rounded out the top five with scores of 342 and 344. Kale Reynolds of Maize garnered medalist honors after winning a sudden death playoff from Dodge City’s Brad Hutton. The pair had fashioned 6-over-par 78s in cool conditions when the tournament teed off at 9 a.m. to accompanied 25-30 mph wind. “I wanted the scores to be better, but the thing I was encourSee Golf, Page A12

Lady Busters go 3-1 at Butler By ADAM HOLT
After dropping three of its last four games, the Garden City Community College softball team rebounded with three wins Saturday and Sunday at the BUCO Bash, hosted by Butler. Garden City got two wins over Eastern Oklahoma, beat Crowder (Mo.), and dropped a game to Maple Woods (Mo.) to move to 15-16 for the season. GCCC never trailed in its opening 7-2 win over Eastern Oklahoma on Friday. Chelsea Justice went 3-for-3 with two home runs, three RBIs and three runs scored. Kallie Hoover pitched all seven innings, allowing two runs on seven hits and three walks, while striking out five. Justice hit a two-run homer in the second as GCCC went up 2-0, and Emilie Laliberte added a three-run shot in the third as the Lady Broncbusters went up 6-0. Justice hit a solo homer in the sixth to make it 7-2. Maple Woods pitcher Jamie Bullock stymied Garden City as the Busters lost 3-0 to the Monarchs. GCCC managed just two hits in the loss, while striking out seven times. Joslynn Lopez allowed three runs, one earned, on eight hits and a walk. Seven errors cost Garden City, including two in the first, which allowed the only run the Monarchs would end up needing. Garden City responded Saturday with a 6-5 win over Eastern Oklahoma to go 2-0 against the Mountaineers for the weekend. Three more errors hurt the Busters, but Justice got the win, allowing five runs, one earned, on four hits and four walks in the complete-game performance. GCCC got a two-run single from Lauren Shanks in the first, then expanded it to a 5-1 lead in the third. Mekayla Aguiniga scored on Danielle Aronoff’s single to center in the fourth for the eventual winning run. A walk, double and hit batter loaded the bases for the Mountaineers in the fifth, and a walk and later an error made it 6-5, but Justice retired six of the final seven batters she faced. A three-run second was all the Busters needed in a 4-1 win over Crowder to finish the weekend. Hoover hit her second homer of the season, a three-run blast in the second to put GCCC up 3-1. The sophomore allowed just one unearned run on four hits and two walks in her complete- game win. Shelby Stuck reached on an error in the first and scored on a single for Crowder’s lone run. Laliberte added an RBI single for GCCC in the seventh. Garden City travels Thursday to Pratt for two non-league games with the Beavers, starting at 3 p.m.
Home woes again plague Busters’ baseball in split with Cloud Co. By ADAM HOLT
The home-field woes continued for the Garden City Community College baseball team. Hosting a Cloud County squad that came into the weekend tied for last in the Jayhawk West, the Broncbusters couldn’t hold onto a three-run lead in the series finale Sunday, and settled for a split with the visiting Thunderbirds. “Yeah. I don’t know,” GCCC head coach Chris Finnegan said of his team’s struggles to win at Williams Stadium. “Maybe we’ve been better — I don’t know. We’ve just got to keep competing. The nice thing is, we play here again on Wednesday. I felt we played better the full four games.” With a chance to take the series in the finale, the Busters (18-20, 12-8 KJCCC) struggled against T-Birds’ starter Trevor Rinne in a 5-3 loss. Garden City got to Rinne for three runs in the first, as the Cloud County (18-20, 7-13) pitcher struggled with control. Rocky Desantis had an RBI double, and Kevin Czarnecki added a tworun single. From that point on, though, Rinne was a different pitcher. The right-hander retired 16 of 19 batters he faced from the second through seventh innings. Rinne pitched eight innings, allowing
three runs on four hits with four walks and a hit batter, striking out nine. “You’ve gotta give their guy credit,” Finnegan said. “He had three pitches for a strike, both sides of the plate. He tied us up in knots, and we didn’t really have any answers.” Mitch Franek struggled for GCCC and was pulled in the third with the game tied at 3. Cloud County scored the winning run in the fifth, on an RBI single by Skye O’Neil, who was 4-for-4 with two doubles, a triple and a walk, and scored two runs. Down 5-3, Garden City finally got to Rinne again in the eighth, putting runners on second and third with two outs, but Nolan Barrientos flew out to center to end the threat, and Aaric Woodyard closed out the game with a perfect ninth. Garden City rode a dominant start of its own by TJ Clapper to a 3-2 win in Game 3. Clapper needed just 35 pitches to cruise through four no-hit innings before Cloud County got to him in the fifth, scoring both of its runs. A three-run second was all Clapper needed, with Mason Fischer hitting a two-run single to right, and Zach Barton driving in another run with a bunt on a squeeze play. Clapper went five innings,
allowing two runs, both earned, on two hits and two walks with a strikeout. Colton Kibler got a four-out save, striking out three. Saturday, each team had two terrible innings on defense and two opportunistic innings at the plate to split the first doubleheader of the series, Cloud winning first 9-6 and Garden coming back with a 13-6 triumph in the second. Two disastrous innings to start the game put Garden City in a 9-0 hole in the opener, with Cloud County scoring five in the first and four in the second. Bradley Spires had his worst outing of the year in his start, allowing seven runs, five earned, in just one full inning of work, getting yanked for Brooks Trujillo after putting the first two men on in the second. The T-Birds sent 11 men to the plate in the first, taking advantage of four hits, two walks, a hit batsmen and a throwing error by Spires on a bunt. “It’s one of those things where at some point in time, it was gonna happen. It was gonna happen,” Finnegan said of Spires. “He’s been so consistent for us. I think every outing, almost every outing, he’s gone CG (complete game) for us. It’s just something; his time was due. He was due for See Woes, Page A12

Golf: Buffs struggle at Dunes Continued from Page A10

Garden City High School’s Tucker Schiffelbein chips on to the Buffalo Dunes Golf Course No. 9 green Saturday during the GCHS boys’ invitational. desired. “It (putting) just didn’t feel good at all most of the day,” Swender said. “It’s something I can go back and work on for sure. It was nice to get out and play competitively again and see how I’m doing. I’ve got to learn from my mistakes and just go out and play the way I know I can.” Frey also was happy
with the way Swender kept his round together (45 on the front 9, 38 on the back). “It’s tough to stay focused after a hole like he had,” Frey said. “He did a good job of putting it aside and moving on. I thought his 2-over on the back nine was really good.” The Buffs travel to Guymon, Okla., on Friday for their next tournament.

increased playing time because of Ware’s injury, made those back-to-back 3s to spark a 21-8 run. While Hancock and Behanan were knocking down shots, Smith and Peyton Siva were turning up the heat on the Shockers, forcing them into seven turnovers in the final seven minutes after they’d gone more than 26 minutes without one. The first came when Siva darted in to strip the ball away from Carl Hall. Siva fed Hancock, who drilled a 3 that gave Louisville a 56-55 lead, its first since the end of the first half. “Down the stretch, we were just loose with the ball, we just didn’t take care of it, pretty much,” said Wichita State’s Malcolm Armstead, who had just 2 points on 1-of-10
shooting. “I can’t give you an explanation — it just happened.” Cleanthony Early would give the Shockers one more lead, converting a threepoint play. But Siva scored and then Smith stole the ball and took it in for an easy layup that gave Louisville a 60-58 lead with 4:47 left. Louisville fans erupted, and even Ware was on his feet, throwing up his arms and clapping. The Cardinals extended the lead to 65-60 on a tip-in of a Smith miss and another 3 by Hancock. Wichita State had one last chance, pulling within 68-66 on Early’s tip in with 22 seconds left. But the Shockers were forced to foul, and Smith and Hancock made their free throws to seal the victory.
UConn, Louisville in all-Big East title game NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Breanna Stewart scored 29 points to help UConn beat Notre Dame 83-65 on Sunday night to advance to the NCAA championship game. The Huskies will face Louisville in the title game Tuesday night in an all-Big East final. The Cardinals rallied to beat California 6457 in the earlier semifinal. UConn will be going for its eighth national championship to match Tennessee for the most in women’s basketball history. The Huskies (34-4) and Irish had played three thrilling games this season, with Notre Dame coming out on top by margins of one point, two points and in triple overtime. This one wasn’t as close, ending the brilliant career of Notre Dame guard Skylar Diggins. UConn built a 10-point halftime lead and Notre Dame (35-2) could only get within six in the second half, ending the Irish’s school record 30-game winning streak.

Especially after such a close call against the ninthseeded Shockers (30-9), who nearly pulled off their biggest upset of all. Wichita State had knocked off No. 1 seed Gonzaga and Ohio State on its way to its first Final Four since 1965, and the Shockers had a 12-point lead on Louisville with 13:35 to play. It was the largest deficit all tournament for the Cardinals, who seemed lost after the emotional week following Ware’s gruesome injury. “We just played super hard,” said Smith, who led the Cardinals with 21 points. “Nobody wanted to go home.” Henderson, the walkon who was forced into

The more Louisville extends its remarkable run, the more coach Jeff Walz wants to make sure his Cardinals enjoy every moment. As long as they have one more upset in them for the NCAA championship game. The upstart Cardinals got 18 points — all on 3pointers — from Antonita Slaughter and they methodically clawed back from a 10-point halftime deficit to beat California 64-57 on Sunday night in the NCAA semifinals. For a team that has beaten Baylor, Tennessee and now the second-seeded Golden Bears, a little celebration was in order. “We’re going to go on Bourbon Street,” said Walz, whose team has one last practice Monday before Tuesday night’s title game. “I’ll tell the kids, as long as they’re back by 2, we’re OK.” Bria Smith scored 17 on 6 of 7 shooting for the fifthseeded Cardinals (29-8), who became the first team seeded lower than fourth to win a Final Four game.

The result ensures an allBig East Conference final in the league’s last season in its current form, with Louisville meeting the winner of the other semifinal between Notre Dame and Connecticut one night after the Louisville men’s team plays Michigan for the championship. “The way I look at it, I think the men are trying to feed off of our success,” Walz said with a smirk before adding on a serious note that he’d received word from Atlanta that the Louisville men “were in the hotel lobby jumping up and down and cheering for us.” Layshia Clarendon scored 17 for Cal (32-4).
a bad day.” Cloud County got four more in the second, on three hits, a walk, another hit batter and two more Garden City errors. Trujillo settled down in finishing the final six innings, sending down 13 of the last 18 batters he faced. He allowed two unearned runs on five hits and a walk, while striking out four. Garden City got an RBI double from Zimmer in the second, and he added a two-run single in the fourth. Czarnecki and Mohr added RBI hits in the sixth to make it 9-6, but couldn’t do anything with a walk in the seventh. It was the opposite story in Game 2, as the Busters parlayed their late momentum from the previous contest into a six-run first inning, in that eventual 13-6 win. Although GCCC allowed CCCC to score on a sacrifice fly in the top of the first, Buechler’s bases-loaded triple keyed the Busters’ big inning in response. The T-Birds cut it to 6-4 heading into the middle of the fifth but six men reached in a five-run bottom of the inning to stretch the lead back out. “I thought Game 2, we came out with purpose,” Finnegan said. “We scored six in the bottom of the first. But then we give up two. It’s like I told the guys, it’s getting old, being down 1-0, 2-0, 3-0 going into the bottom of the first.” Jake Eikleberry pitched 5 1/3 innings, allowing six runs, four earned, on seven hits for the win. Four Busters pitchers combined to finish the game with 3 2/3 perfect innings. CCCC starter Zach Demars struggled with control, allowing 11 runs 10 earned, on seven hits, four walks and two hit batters. GCCC hosts Otero Junior College (Colo.) at 3 p.m. Wednesday. The Busters won the first meeting of the year, 8-6, on the road.
Michigan in title test ATLANTA (AP) — Don’t call these guys the Fab Five. Michigan’s latest group of young stars is determined to leave its own legacy. Attacking Syracuse’s suffocating zone defense in the first half with 3-pointers, crisp passing and a fearless attitude, the Wolverines advanced to the national championship game with a 61-56 victory over the Orange in the Final Four on Saturday night. Michigan (31-7) will be going for its first national title since 1989 when it faces Louisville tonight at the Georgia Dome. Louisville was established as a 4 1/2point title game favorite. Don’t expect that to bother the brash young Wolverines a bit.

aged about was none of them threw in the towel,” Frey said of his team. Mitch Moore was next with a 93, Tristan Corrales had a 95, Tucker Schiffelbein and Parker Tanner had 96s and Lucas Goss a 98. “They all played better on their final nine holes,” Frey said. “With this young team, it’s a process. This is just the beginning. I just want to see them get better every day. If we do that, there’s some light at the end of the tunnel.” For Swender, the day was one in which he did all he could to salvage a tough start to his round. Starting at the first tee, Swender saw his round potentially derailed with a 9 on the par-4 third hole. His tee shot was far left, and his approach shot to the green clipped a tree and the ball was eventually lost. The 2-shot penalty was costly. “For the most part, I felt comfortable playing,” Swender said. “I had a few bad holes, and I didn’t have my putting going. On the back nine, I had it going pretty good.” In fact, Swender played the other 17 holes in 6over-par. But he refused to blame his play on the windy conditions. “It’s been like that a lot when we play out here,” Swender said of the wind. “We should be used to it, and I won’t use that as an excuse.” The junior said his tee shots and iron play were the stronger parts of his game, while the putter (39 putts) left something to be
