New fire chief

New fire Chief ready, excited to face challenges B y T im Weideman
email@example.com After spending his entire firefighting career in Wichita Kevin Royse decided it was time for a change of scenery. In May, Royse was selected from a field of 24 candidates to replace former Junction City Fire Chief Mike Steinfort, who retired in November. A week ago Monday, Royse, for the first time walked through the doors of Station No. 1 as the new Junction City Fire Department Chief. “I’ve learned more in the last two
weeks than in a long time,” he said Wednesday as he sat in his office at the station. “But I like it. It’s new, it’s different. It’s exciting.” Royse, a Wichita native, has been in the firefighting profession since 1987. At the Wichita Fire Department, he worked his way through the ranks from firefighter to battalion chief of that department’s special operations division. In that position, Royse oversaw four to five fire stations at a time and about 48 personnel. A difference between Wichita’s and Junction City’s fire departments is the latter provides full EMS services.

Wichita’s department has paramedics, but doesn’t transport patients. “I wanted to see the fire-based EMS side,” Royse said. “I wanted to learn it and this was the perfect opportunity.” Royse holds a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in criminal justice. He’s also a graduate of the National Fire Academy’s Executive Fire Officer Program. Junction City’s Fire Chief position represented a chance for Royse not only to enter a slightly slower environment, but also to use his education Please see Royse, 8A
A hearing during which a former Junction City church leader is expected to act on a plea bargain in 10 alleged child molestation cases has been continued to Aug. 6. Former Faith Tabernacle Music Director Jordan Young faces charges in 10 child molestation cases that allegedly occurred from 2008 to 2012. Junction City Police first arrested Young last summer. Young originally was scheduled to appear Tuesday morning in Eighth Judicial District Court in Junction City. Court documents show prosecutors on July 24 sent Young’s attorney, Thomas Lemon, of Topeka, a copy of the proposed plea agreement. The defense requested extra time to review additional documents and for Young to discuss with Lemon those documents as well as the plea agreement, according to court records.

firstname.lastname@example.org As a line formed inside the Fegan Dining Room, Dr. Mary Otoo and Dr. Rafael Velasquez cheerfully smiled as they received hugs and handshakes from community members. During the Wednesday reception, Geary Community Hospital (GCH) officially welcomed two of their newest doctors. On Aug. 12, Otoo will begin the next chapter of her medical career as general surgeon for GCH. Velasquez began work as the hospital’s family doctor
on July 1. Chief Executive Officer Joe Stratton said Wednesday he’s happy to have Otoo as a new surgeon at GCH. Otoo will join Dr. Fouad Hachem and Dr. Charles Bollman in the Flint Hills Surgical Clinic. She began her education in the West African country of Ghana, before traveling to the United States to further her education. She was attracted to GCH because of the professionals and the technology it has to offer, despite being a small hospital. “I’m hoping all my experiences will benefit the
community as well as the people here,” Otoo said. Her interest in surgery began while meeting women in her field at the State University of New York (SUNY) Upstate Medical University in Syracuse, N.Y. “It’s interesting at watching how they can balance challenges in the medical field and their family life,” Otoo said. “But most importantly you have to love what you do.” Her position at GCH will require her to be on call for trauma incidents. One challenge she’ll probably have to face is access to health care. “It’s universal, it’s not just in the United States,” Please see Doctors, 8A

West loves his crafts: teaching and pottery B y G ail P arsons
Abilene Reflector-Chronicle ABILENE — A visit to Barry West’s home in Abilene is like a visit to a fine art gallery. Pottery neatly arranged on the tables, beautiful stained glass shimmering in the windows and finely detailed paintings gracing the wall space account for several decades of independent work and demonstrations to children in the classroom. West retired after teaching art for 22 years in Solomon, but in that time he introduced a world that would open doors and opportunities to hundreds of children in Dickinson County. Though pottery is his strong suit, his students were given the opportunity to try their hand at several mediums including jewelry, painting, sculpture and stained glass. Just being able to try and work with the arts is something he believes is vital for the children and bothersome when schools start eliminating it.
“Kids need a chance to express themselves, to do drawing or painting or pottery, and be able to express without fear,” he
said. “If they do away with the arts, what are (the children) going to use to express themselves?” Fortunately, West didn’t

attention and be prepared to stop. The purpose of this project is to extend the life of the highway and improve ride quality. Mid-America Road Builders Inc. of Platte City, Mo. is the prime contractor for this project. Project cost is $1.06 million.
County OKs floor project ABILENE — The county soon will be represented on the floor of the renovated statehouse in Topeka. Dickinson County commissioners approved spending $1,000 to help pay for a Visitors Center on the north side of the Capitol. The center will be the main entrance for visitors, legislators and employees. A special feature of the Visitors Center is a marble map of Kansas and its individual
105 counties that will be laid into the floor and allow all people to pass through to identify counties and see their relationship to others in the state. Each county name will be cut into the marble.

New sign coming
School supplies available
The Abilene Area Chamber of Commerce will approach the city commission for approval to install a digital sign on the east side of the train depot building on Aug. 6. The chamber recently moved into the building and would like to have the sign replace the static sign that currently exists at that location, said Torey Berndt, chamber executive director. The Convention and Visitors Bureau and the Abilene Heritage Commission have both approved the sign, but not without some debate. Tim Hamilton, Community Development director, said the vote passed the Heritage Commission on a 4-0 vote, but two members who were notable to attend the meeting had expressed via e-mail that they would vote against the proposed sign if they were able to attend the meeting. The final vote came down to whether or not a digital sign in that location would “encroach upon damage or destroy the historic character of the downtown historic district, “Hamilton said. The board determined that it would not. “I think it will keep with the historical design, “Berndt said. Generally, in the downtown historic district there are guidelines that set standards for any changes. However, the standards are subjective and there is a process in place to grant variances, with the final decision being made by the city commission. “This sign is an interesting situation because it is being put inside a middle panel of an existing sign, “Hamilton said. “It is a monument sign that has been inexistence for years.
ABILENE — Free school supplies, a free lunch, games for children,free clothing vouchers and a wide variety of information on area agencies helping others will be available from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. this Saturday, Aug. 3, at the Abilene Community Center, 1020 NW 8th, Abilene, when Kids in Crisis (KIC) and the Family Support Team join in offering a fun day of activities for Dickinson County residents. A family fun day sponsored by the OCCK will beheld at the same time and place. KIC will launch its seventh year of assistance to low-income children in distributing $20 vouchers to children who qualify for free lunches at school and $10 vouchers to children who qualify for reduced lunches, along with free backpack sand other supplies. By using “rainy day money,” the mill levy for the Abilene USD 435 2013-2014 school year will go down a little. At least that is the budget the board approved to be published. The proposed $9,429,895 budget is expected to be funded with a 45.703 mill levy on property taxes, the state allotment of $3,838 per the 14,090 students and $400,000 from the district’s savings account. Board member Gregg Noel said that Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback is getting his way by cutting taxes. “The state wants us to take savings and money from savings,” Noel said, calling the money “rainy day money.” “Who knows down the road where we’ll be? It’s scary to pull money out of the savings account but that is where we are right now,” said Abilene Superintendent Denise Guy in presenting the budget to the board in a hearing at noon Monday. The levy actually dropped 0.009 mils from last year’s budget which was 45.712.“We are maintaining our commitment to education, “said board member Debby Barbur.

wasn’t confined to the classroom. With a strong artistic spirit, he was frequently creating and trying new things. “Inspiration just bubbles up in my brain,” he said. “I’ve always been an expressive person.” His expression is evident as soon as one approaches his house. The yard has become a showcase gallery of his welded art. Several sculptures, some representational like the flowers or the person on a bike and others nonrepresentational, are found throughout the yard and around his studio that takes up half of the garage. When he thinks back to the many students he has had over the years, he speaks with pride about them and the things they are doing today.

old dog and didn’t want to learn new tricks,” he said. It didn’t take long for him to change his tune. “I loved them, but I had to get used to kids hugging around my knees.” He also realized it wasn’t just him teaching the children. He ended up learning right along side of them. As a teacher, he guided them and demonstrated procedures and techniques, but he did so more as a stimulus rather than instruction. He said he allowed the children the flexibility to express their own creativity. At the same time, he had to ensure he was meeting the state education guidelines. But rather than fitting the art projects into a set of guidelines, he worked the guidelines into the art projects. In this way the children could learn the elements of design, and the principals of color theory and not have to sit through a lecture. Savings West’s art

In brief Geary County Commissioners are making a proposal to increase the mill levy. Commission Chair Ben Bennett reported the tax rate may increase by 2.02 mills. For 2013, the mill rate is 52.36. The increase may generate close to $500,000. Some of the reasons include security upgrades associated with a new conceal and carry law and funding local organizations losing funds due to cuts from the state. “We still have to make a decision on it and look at other alternatives,” Bennett said. Commissioners are scheduled to make a final decision Monday, Aug. 5, before it’s published. A budget hearing is scheduled for Aug. 19.

Special to The Daily Union On Sunday, the C.L. Hoover Opera House and its personnel celebrated and thanked the many volunteers and donors for their great support of the 2012-13 Season. The event was held on the Opera House stage complete with appetizers, cocktails and live entertainment. Attendees enjoyed the piano stylings of Mary Louise Stahl and Janette Vogelsang as they played a variety of standards and tuneful favorites. Entertainment was also provided by the local group, “Quitting Time” comprised of Bob Cervera, Brian Clark, Rick ‘Cuz’ Garver, Susan O’Brien and Mary Louise Stahl. The event was hosted by the J.C. Opera House Management Board and the J.C. Opera House Foundation. During the 2012-13
Volunteer of the Year Bob Cervera (right) with Janette Vogelsang. season volunteers served in an expanded capacity inclusive of: House Manager, Technical Booth Assistants, Box Office Assistants, Coat Check, Ushers, Bartenders, Concession Sales (selling CD’s and T-shirts for performers), Photography as well as
helping with Opera House marketing mailings. When figuring volunteer hours for the season it was calculated that over 2200 hours were donated across all areas and when using an average salary of $10 per hour volunteers provided over $20,000 to the
Opera House which serves to lessen the financial burden of operating costs. It was the vision of Stahl and Vogelsang to expand the use of volunteers in an effort to offer more volunteer opportunities to the community at large as well as to better meet the needs of balancing the Opera House budget. Barbara Cowen Craft, Chairperson of the Opera House Foundation (J.C. Opera House, Inc), also spoke and gave a synopsis of grants and other funds obtained during the 2012-13 season. The Volunteer of the Year for the 2012-13 season was presented to Cervera who has been instrumental in bringing the Acoustic Junction events, a showcase for local acoustic talent, to the Opera House. If interested in donating to the Opera House or serving as a volunteer please contact them at 785-238-3906. Their next show is: Joseph Hall’s Elvis on Saturday, Aug. 10th at 7:30 p.m.
A trek for heroes Man walking across country to honor soldiers B y D avid P reacher P or ter
Special to The Daily Union The Earl C. Gormley American Legion Post 45 in Junction City recently hosted and displayed Joe “Tiger” Patrick’s Memorial Panel. Tiger, a Desert Storm veteran, is on a mission carrying his “Fallen Heroes Memorial Panel” across America. The panel contains a picture of every man or woman lost in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. The faces of more than 6,690 fallen heroes are chronologically displayed on the 8-foot-by 25-foot unfurled cloth panel. When not on display, he places the rolled panel in his backpack. Tiger’s trek began on April 27 at Coronado Island, Calif., and planned
for a 6-month journey, heading east toward Walter Reed Hospital for mission completion. He is stopping at various fire houses, VFW and American Legion Posts and military facilities. Along the way he has met family, friends, wounded warriors, and brothers and sisters in arms who have known the fallen. During his trek, Tiger also has the painful task of updating the pictures along the way as he honors those who have given the ultimate sacrifice to their nation. He stopped in Junction City recently where he joined the Legion Post during the Legion Riders “Legacy Scholarship” breakfast fundraiser. “My favorite moments of the walk are the warm hugs and shared tears

email@example.com Owners of small businesses have the opportunity to spruce up their storefronts or interiors, thanks to a new grant that soon will be available from the Junction City-Geary County Economic Development Commission. On Wednesday, the Junction City Area Chamber of Commerce board of directors gave their final approval to a proposed grant program that targets locallyowned businesses in Junction City. The program has about $25,000 available for making minor, aesthetic improvements to buildings. Chamber Economic Development Specialist Susan Jagerson said businesses will be able to apply for the grants. If awarded, owners then would be reimbursed after proving the work has been completed. “It’s going to be kind of designed with few strings attached,” Jagerson told the chamber board Wednesday morning. Businesses won’t have to be chamber members to apply for a grant. Chamber CEO Weigand said the city has tasked the chamber with pushing business growth in Junction City — and not just among the chamber’s members. “This is community-
wide, economic development,” he said. The Economic Development Advisory Committee (EDC) approved the program July 11. The proposal was then sent to the chamber board for final approval. At that EDC meeting, Jagerson said a specific number of grants of up to $2,000 will be offered to businesses in Junction City and Geary County. A 25 percent cash match from the businesses will be required. The program will be paid for by the EDC from funds the organization originally had budgeted for NRP loan reimbursement and Spirit of ‘76 payments. “Both those reimbursements are being paid through the city from the EDC cash account,” Jagerson said. The program is expected to be officially launched later this year. Once it’s available, Jagerson will lead the effort to spread the word to business owners. “I’m sure my face may be more welcome if I’m handing them information on a grant that they could get,” she said.

with those who carry the loss of their loved ones every day,” he said. Tiger was housed during his stop in Junction City by the Wingates. David is a retired Army veteran and member of Post 45. Tiger and Dave were complete strangers before a chance meeting at a yard sale in the town of Matheson, Colo., not so long ago. “The Wingates have extended a hand of friendship, putting me up in their home and is truly an example of Midwest hospitality,” he said. When asked to describe his experience and impression of Kansas and Junction City, Tiger paused and beamed a smile. “Friendly isn’t a strong enough word,” he said. “I have six to eight people a day stopping their cars, trucks and once this big green combine, offering a ride or water.”

Local resident elected supreme leader S pecial to T he D aily U nion
LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Charles E. Young made a little history this weekend. The Junction City resident was elected Supreme National Jr. Vice Commander of the Military Order of the Cootie at the Supreme C o nve n tion. C harles It will Y oung be the first time Kansas has had a Supreme Commander since instituted in 1947. The Military Order of the Cootie is an honor degree of the Veterans of Foreign Wars. Young has been instrumental in keeping the state of Kansas and Junction City Pup Tent #6 elevated in all the Supreme programs. In the past eight years, the state of Kansas and Junction City has won the honor of All Star Commander five times and has been captain of the All Star Commanders two times, including this year. In order to receive that award, the state and Pup Tents had to excel in all of the programs above all the other states in the United States, Europe and the Pacific. According to Young, Kansas may be small in numbers compared to other states, but it is mighty when it comes to supporting Supreme and VFW programs such as the VA hospitals and nursing homes, veterans programs and the VFW National home for widows and orphans of veterans. It was started by the Military Order of the Cootie organization. Also attending the Supreme Convention from the Junction City Auxiliary was Lydna Wallace, supreme bylaw chairman and past supreme president; Linda Vinson, Supreme 9th District chaplain and president of the state of Kansas; and chief of staff and past Supreme 9th District president Shirreen Young. The Supreme 9th covers the states of Missouri, Iowa, Nebraska, Kansas and South Dakota. Kansas and the Military Order of the Cootie Auxiliary of Junction City won many awards for the work done in all of the supreme programs.

Associated Press LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Arkansas Republican Rep. Tom Cotton plans to announce his bid next week to challenge twoterm incumbent Democratic Sen. Mark Pryor in next year’s elections, according to a person familiar with the congressman’s plans. The person who spoke to The Associated Press on Wednesday was not authorized to speak publicly about the planned announcement and spoke on a condition of anonymity. But the freshman congressman has scheduled an event Tuesday with supporters in his hometown of Dardanelle. Cotton’s entry will set up a heated and expensive fight for a U.S. Senate seat that Republicans believe is prime for a pickup in 2014, with groups on the right and left already waging a television ad fight in Arkansas. It also creates a domino effect, with several Republicans now eyeing Cotton’s seat in the U. S. House. Cotton was elected to the U.S. House in 2012, to the open seat formerly held by Democrat Mike Ross. Ross is now running for Arkansas governor. Cotton, 36, is a former management consultant who served in the Army in Iraq and Afghanistan. He was elected to the 4th District in November, after racking up endorsements during his primary bid from national Republican leaders including U.S. Sen. John McCain of Arizona and conservative groups such as the Club for Growth. The Club for Growth in February launched the first television ad against Pryor, seen by many as a signal that the group would back Cotton’s potential candidacy. Other conservative groups said they’re prepared to back Cotton’s bid. “Representative Cotton is a conservative leader and rock star candidate. Arkansas is now one of the very top pickup opportunities for Republicans this cycle and we are excited to get engaged in the race on behalf of Rep. Tom Cotton,” said Steven J. Law, president and CEO of American Crossroads, a GOP group tied to Republican strategist Karl Rove. Pryor is viewed by many
Arkansas Republican Rep. Tom Cotton attends the 40th annual Conservative Political Action Conference March 14 in National Harbor, Md. Republicans as the most vulnerable Senate incumbent next year, especially after recent GOP gains in Arkansas. Republicans in November took over the state Legislature for the first time since Reconstruction and swept all four of the state’s U.S. House seats. Republicans are trying to unseat Pryor and three other Democratic incumbents who represent states that Republican Mitt Romney won in last year’s presidential race: Mark Begich of Alaska, Kay Hagan of North Carolina and Mary Landrieu of Louisiana. Democrats need to defend 21 seats, including seven in largely rural states that Obama lost in 2012. Republicans need to pick up six seats to regain Senate control. On Wednesday, Pryor’s campaign wasted no time in hitting back, accusing Cotton of alienating constituents on issues ranging from farming to Social Security. “Instead of putting Arkansas first, he has put his own political career ahead of the people of Arkansas and sided with Washington insiders and special interests,” Pryor’s campaign manager, Jeff Weaver, said in a statement. “When the people of our state review Tom Cotton’s record, they won’t like what they see.” Pryor reported in July that he ended the second quarter with nearly $4 million in the bank for his re-election bid. Cotton has $1 million on hand. Groups on the right and left have already been airing ads throughout the

state targeting Pryor. A gun control group founded by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg has aired spots criticizing the Democratic lawmaker for voting against expanded background checks. Pryor used his first TV spot to defend his vote against the criticism. Since taking office in January, Cotton has enjoyed a high profile with multiple appearances on national programs such as Meet the Press. Cotton in July wrote a column for the Wall Street Journal opposing Senate immigration legislation. He’s also been targeted by Democrats who viewed him as a likely challenger to Pryor. Two Democratic political action committees, Patriot Majority USA and Senate Majority PAC, launched a $270,000 television ad buy in June attacking Cotton for allegedly seeking the national spotlight at the expense of his district. Cotton has faced criticism from Democrats for initially opposing the farm bill over objections to the food stamp program. Cotton later voted for a version of the farm bill that did not include funding for food stamps. Cotton’s also come under fire for a recent proposal that would have extended sanctions on Iranian human rights violators to their families — an idea that has been criticized as eliminating due process. Cotton, who withdrew the proposal, has defended the idea and said it would only apply to sanctions on Iranians, not any American citizens. Cotton’s appeal to conservative activists stems
from his resume as a Harvard-educated veteran who’s known for his rhetorical flourishes. When he joined with House Republicans to vote for the federal health overhaul’s repeal, he compared the unsuccessful effort to defeat the law to an ancient Roman senator’s ongoing call to destroy Carthage. When Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez died in March, Cotton responded with “Sic semper tyrannis,” or Latin for “thus always to tyrants.” John Wilkes Booth uttered the same after assassinating President Lincoln. Cotton’s candidacy will likely have a domino effect on other races in Arkansas. House Majority Leader Bruce Westerman plans to seek the Republican nomination for Cotton’s seat and will formally launch his campaign in August, a person who had spoken to the lawmaker told the AP. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because Cotton had not yet formally launched his Senate campaign. Lt. Gov. Mark Darr has said he’d likely run for Cotton’s seat if the congressman ran for Senate. Beth Anne Rankin, who was the party’s nominee for the seat in 2010 and lost the primary to Cotton last year, said Wednesday she’d consider running again if Cotton challenges Pryor. Janis Percefull, a community college teacher, is the only Democrat running for the 4th District seat. State Rep. Jeff Wardlaw said Wednesday he’s considering running for the Democratic nomination.
Brazil: Bricklayer’s disappearance in spotlight B y Jenny B archfield
Associated Press RIO DE JANEIRO — Activists pressing for light to be shed on the disappearance of a bricklayer who was last seen in police custody more than two weeks ago staged a protest Wednesday on Rio de Janeiro’s Copacabana beach. The case of Amarildo de Souza, a 42-year-old father of six who has not been seen since he was picked up for police questioning on June 14, has sparked widespread outrage here, particularly in the sprawling Rocinha
Hattie B Slaughter 8-1-1925 ~ 7-31-2000 You will never be forgotten for though we are apart- your are always alive within our hearts.
Peggy ~ Evelyn ~William ~ Flora Eddie ~ Kelema ~ Marsha ~ Lisa
hillside “favela” where he was born and raised. Souza’s case has also shone the spotlight on the nearly 35,000 disappearances reported in the state over the past five years. Activists say that many of the disappeared were likely killed, some by organized crime and others by the police. Two officers detained Souza at a bar in Rocinha on suspicions he was involved in drug trafficking and took him to a nearby police station for questioning, said Antonio Carlos Costa, whose Rio de Paz organization coordinated Wednesday’s protest, citing accounts from Souza’s family as well as eyewitnesses. Police say it was a case of mistaken identity and that Souza was released shortly thereafter. They say he left the building by foot, but images from nearby surveillance cameras don’t show any sign of him. Neither of the two surveillance cameras outside the police station were working on the day of Souza’s detention, according to media reports. “In the community of Rocinha, everyone is sure that Amarildo was executed and his body dumped in the woods somewhere,” said Costa. A body discovered in Rocinha on Tuesday was initially thought to be Souza’s, but it turned out to be a woman’s, the Globo television network reported. A blood stain found on the seat of a police car is being examined to determine whether it could be Souza’s, and the results are expected on Friday. Orlando Zaccone, the police official in charge of the investigation, said Wednesday they’re also looking into allegations that a body was ferried out of Rocinha in a garbage truck. Several officers have been transferred out of Rocinha pending the investigation. Extrajudicial killings by police officers have long plagued Brazil, where officers routinely open fire on suspects they say repre-
sented a threat or were resisting arrest. In Rio state alone, police have killed more than 5,300 people for resisting arrest over the past five years, according to official statistics. Costa said that many of the 34,681 people that official statistics report as missing in the state from January 2007 to May 2013 are thought to have been killed by police, while others were likely slain by organized crime. However, he added, it’s impossible to determine which percentage of the disappearances can be attributed to the police and which to the drug gangs. Costa also said the number of disappearances in the state could actually be higher, as many are thought to go unreported. “Public security officials know Rio de Janeiro is riddled with clandestine cemeteries,” Costa told journalists at Wednesday’s symbol-heavy protest, which saw gauzeshrouded mannequins buried in the sand to represent the fate of the disappeared. “There are clandestine cemeteries spread throughout the metropolitan region where today rest the bodies of people whose families are still waiting for them to come home.” Costa said the Souza case has further strained relations between residents and the police in Rocinha. Police took over Rocinha about 1 1/2 years ago under a government “pacification” program aimed at pushing out the violent and heavily-armed drug gangs that had long controlled most of Rio’s 1,000 slums. Currently more than 200 communities have been pacified, many of them near the city’s rich, beachfront neighborhoods. Earlier this week, the U.S.-based Human Rights Watch sent an open letter to Sao Paulo Gov. Geraldo Alckmin complaining about extrajudicial executions by police officers there.

Special session not best governance
special session called by Gov. Sam Brownback for September was only intended to rewrite the state’s “Hard 50” criminal sentencing law after the U.S. Supreme Court raised questions about its constitutionality. The court ruled in a Virginia case that juries, not judges, must consider whether the case warrants the minimum 50-year, or life in prison sentence. Attorney General Derek Schmidt asked for a special session to rewrite the Kansas law. The governor assured lawmakers the session would only last a few days. Now it turns out that legislators will have to consider whether to confirm as many as 19 of the governor’s judicial and other appointees during that special session — including a new Court of Appeals judgeship and three new members of the Kansas Board of Regents. During the last session, the Legislature abandoned a longtime nonpartisan method of an attorney-led commission picking three names, with the governor then having the final say. Under the new law, the governor makes the nomination, and the Senate will either confirm or reject his choice. As the law was written, without a special session the Senate would have 20 days after the next regular session convened in January to consider the governor’s appointment. But since the special session has been called, and since the governor is required to pick nominees by Aug. 29, the legislature has no choice but to consider his appointments — frankly, in haste. We were not in favor of scrapping the old method of judicial appointments, despite the arguments of proponents that it mirrored the federal method, where the president appoints and the Senate confirms. The Kansas method has worked fine for many years, and is still being used for state Supreme Court nominations, though that will likely be the next line of attack in the march to consolidate the governor and the conservative wing of the Republican Party’s power. The end result of this hastily called special session on a sentencing issue that almost certainly could have waited until January as well, is that lawmakers could end up in a prolonged — and expensive — special session, coming on the heels of a rancorous and highly dysfunctional regular session. This isn’t exactly state governance at its finest, in our view.

Farm safety around power lines B y John S chlageck
Kansas Farm Bureau
n June of this year, a 37-year-old Stanton County farmer died inside a grain cart while preparing for wheat harvest. A tarp (containing a metal rod) in the grain cart blew up and touched an over-head power line electrocuting him. Without a doubt this falls in the category of a freak accident. There’s probably no way this young farmer would have thought a strong gust of wind would whip the tarp up into an overhead power line and kill him. Still, friends and neighbors in his community say they were extremely aware of where they parked trucks, tractors and other farm machinery after this tragedy. Since 1980, 26 Kansas farmers and stockmen have died by electrocution. Most of these deaths resulted in contact with overhead power lines on the farm. No one likes to think or talk about the dangers of electricity and the consequences. Still, it’s important to be aware of potential hazards — especially in agriculture. “Many farms in Kansas have power lines strung on poles crossing farm land and in some cases buried under ground; it’s important to be aware of electrical facts and principles and observe safety precautions,” says Holly Higgins, Kansas Farm Bureau safety director. Higgins suggests farmers, ranchers and anyone who works around electric power lines consider and always keep
Letter to the Editor Baseball the greatest game To the Editor:
s the chairman for American Legion Post 45 Baseball along with Heath Gerstner, manager of the Hawks, and Derek Scott, manager of the Blues, we would like to thank all of the parents and fans who faithfully supported our Post 45 Baseball teams in 2013. A big thank you goes to Brenda Boyd, Activities Coordinator for Modern Woodman of America who sponsored the matching funds breakfast, Robert Smith who took care of the kitchen, Dan Loehr, Post 45 Commander, Joe Belardo who supplied the inspiration for all of us, and the supporting cast of both baseball teams as servers. A special thanks to Earl C. Gormley Post 45, the Ladies Auxiliary, 40-8 Voiture, a special anonymous supporter, and all of those who participated. Thank you Brian Field for connecting the dots and making this season possible,
the following facts in the back of their mind. Most overhead power lines have no protective insulation. Any physical or equipment contact with them could be dangerous or lethal. Non-metallic materials such as lumber, tree limbs, tires, ropes, straw and hay can conduct electricity depending on moisture content and surface contamination. Electricity always seeks the easiest and shortest path to the ground. Persons can be electrocuted by simply coming too close to a power line. Electricity can arc or jump between a wire and a conducting object such as a ladder or truck. Always stay a safe distance away from power lines — 10 feet or more, especially for high-voltage lines. When people or objects touch or come to close to a power line, there is an instant flow of electricity through them to the ground. The flow of electricity through the human body can burn, severely injure or cause death. It takes less than one ampere of electricity to kill a person. When electricity flows into the ground, it can electrocute anyone who comes close. Stay at least 30 feet or more away from fallen wires. Also, if you see equipment or a person in contact with a power line, be aware that the ground may be electrified and be dangerous to bystanders. “It’s important we learn from others’ mistakes,” Higgins says. “Always think before you act and remain vigilant about your surroundings and possible safety hazards.”
Think before you move farm machinery, hoppers, bins, sprayer booms, cultivator wings, grain augers, bale elevators, scaffolds and portable buildings around or under power lines. Look before you raise or carry ladders, poles, rods, irrigation pipes or eaves troughs near power lines. Check clearance before you raise dump truck boxes or front-end loaders. Never touch power lines with tools or lift power lines by hand or with lumber. Never clear storm-damaged trees, limbs or other debris that are touching or are close to fallen power lines. Avoid cutting trees or pruning limbs that may fall on power lines. Hire a specialist to take care of such hazardous projects. Never try to move fallen electrical wires. Never leave a vehicle when you are within 30 feet of fallen wires. Educate children, young and seasonal workers about power line hazards, Higgins advises. Point out where they’re located and remind workers about the importance of keeping a safe distance especially if they will be operating equipment or handling long objects.

Explaining the American Legion
he American Legion. What is the purpose — this question is quite frequently asked by a lot of young soldiers. So, what is the purpose? I have been trying to find a proper answer and explain that we as veterans serve after serving for the purpose of supporting those still who are on active duty including their families. This purpose can come in many forms and in many different settings. This great organization was formed in 1919 and the American Legion is the organization that initiated
the Bill of Rights, which is still being used today. Today’s column is designed to inform you the reader of this newspaper and around Junction City of the true meaning of the existence of a veterans organization. I will continue in many columns to come in the future, as to what we’re doing and why we are doing it. It is important that an intelligent community is informed, especially with the existence of a military installation so many veterans retiring in and around this area.
Please be on the lookout for a future column in which I will start explaining in some detail how much we need the support of retiring veterans and of those soldiers currently on active duty to be members of this organization and why everyone serving can qualify. Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the National American Legion web site at Legion.org. Stay tuned.

Kansas Crime Briefs Associated Press
Kansas senator, mayor spar over gun rights website WICHITA — A Kansas state senator is demanding that Wichita Mayor Carl Brewer take his name off the website of Mayors Against Illegal Guns group. The Wichita Eagle reports that state Sen. Michael O’Donnell used a Facebook post to question the city’s membership in New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s coalition. “Why would Wichita be a member of this group — the brainchild of Michael ‘you can’t drink soda’ Bloomberg? If you care about the 2nd amendment please contact our city leaders and ask them to drop out of this ‘gun control’ group!” O’Donnell posted on Facebook. O’Donnell told the newspaper he has not spoken to the mayor about the issue. “I believe personally that, based on the mayor’s public positions with guns and his animosity toward the concealed carry law and gun owners from the bench as evidenced by his voting record, this fits right in with his outlook toward gun owners and gun rights,” O’Donnell said. “It more mirrors New York City than Wichita, Kansas.” Brewer said he vaguely remembers the group’s formation in 2006, but doesn’t remember Wichita signing on. While he doesn’t want guns in public places, Brewer said he respects gun rights. “To say I don’t support gun rights at all is silly,” Brewer said. “I have guns myself. Everyone knows that.” The group’s mission statement, posted on its website, says it supports the Second Amendment and the rights of citizens to own guns. “We recognize that the vast majority of gun dealers and gun owners carefully follow the law. And we know that a policy that is appropriate for a small town in one region of the country is not necessarily appropriate for a big city in another region of the country,” according to the statement. “But what binds us together is a determination to fight crime, and a belief that we can do more to stop criminals from getting guns while also protecting the rights of citizens to freely own them.” Brewer said he’s unaware of any shift in the group’s focus.
Lawmaker pledges scrutiny for Kansas court nominee TOPEKA — A key Kansas lawmaker is promising that Gov. Sam Brownback’s next appointee to the state Court of Appeals will be thoroughly scrutinized during a special legislative session. Independence Republican Jeff King chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee. King said Wednesday he’s planning a confirmation hearing for the yet-tobe-named judge when the special session opens Sept. 3. King also said the committee will meet as long as necessary that day. King dismissed a claim by Senate Democratic Leader Anthony Hensley that considering the appointment during the special session is intended to minimize scrutiny of the appointee. The Republican governor has until Aug. 29 to nominate the judge, whose appointment requires Senate confirmation under a new Kansas law. Wednesday was the governor’s deadline for applications for the judgeship. Brownback isn’t releasing candidates’ names.
Celeb hunter gets 30 days for probation violation KANSAS CITY — A celebrity hunter from Tennessee who unlawfully killed a deer in Kansas has been banned from hunting anywhere in the United States or the world for the next year. The U.S. attorney’s office also announced Wednesday that 50-yearold William “Spook” Spann must spend a total of 30 nights and weekends in federal custody by the end of February. U.S. Magistrate Judge James O’Hara imposed the sentence Tuesday after finding that Spann violated the terms of a plea agreement that banned him from hunting for six months. Last year, Spann pleaded guilty to transporting across state lines the antlers of a deer he killed on land adjoining his central Kansas property. He was only permitted to hunt on his property. Spann has a hunting show, “Spook Nation,” on the Pursuit Channel.

1983 killings of Leavenworth couple unsolved LEAVENWORTH — A retired detective said he still holds out hope that the gruesome 1983 murders of a Leavenworth County couple will be solved. Edward and Hazel Burton were found shot to death on their property in the Kickapoo Township area in northern Leavenworth County on July 22, 1983. The partially nude body of Edward Burton, 67, was found in the middle of a dirt road, with a gunshot to his forehead. Hazel Burton, 58, was found shot death in a bus the couple was staying in for the summer on their property, The Leavenworth Times reported. Hank Spellman, the senior detective at the time in Leavenworth County, said he found footprints circling Edward Burton’s body and both victims were lying in pools of blood. Local, state and federal agents helped investigate the crime. An FBI profiler suggested the suspects knew the area well, was familiar with the victims and likely had severe mental problems. Spellman said several potential suspects were questioned and took lie detector tests and one tip even led investigators to Germany, although the trip didn’t yield any results. “There were times when I thought we were close and someone was going to confess,” he said. “That just didn’t work out. We couldn’t get anyone to talk.” Spellman is convinced someone who is still alive knows more about the case. “This elderly couple didn’t deserve this,” Spellman said. “They didn’t hurt anyone, lived alone and were well thought of by most people. They were just good country folks.”
Trial delayed in Kansas trucking scheme case WICHITA — A federal judge has delayed the trial
of three California residents accused of trying to steal nearly $83,000 worth of beef from a southwest Kansas slaughterhouse. U.S. District Judge Monti Belot on Tuesday set the case for a jury trial beginning Nov. 12 in Wichita. Trial had previously been set for August. An indictment charges 53-year-old Oganes Nagapetian; his 46-year-old wife, Larisa; and his 50-year-old brother, Tigran Nagapetian, with conspiracy to violate U.S. laws. All are from North Hollywood, Calif. Prosecutors allege the three tried to steal a semiload of processed beef in November 2011 from the Tyson Fresh Meats plant in Holcomb by pretending to be legitimate freight haulers. The government says meatpacking plants in Dodge City, Liberal, Holcomb and Garden City have been targeted in similar trucking schemes.
Two Kansas deputies accused in funds case WICHITA — Two Kansas sheriff ’s deputies have been arrested on suspicion of stealing taxpayer money. Sedgwick County Sheriff Jeff Easter announced the arrests Tuesday without naming the deputies. Easter says the case has been turned over to the district attorney’s office. The deputies worked in the transportation division, taking inmates between jails. Easter says the arrests followed a twoweek investigation. No other details about the alleged theft of public money were released, and Easter said he would not comment further. Both deputies were booked into the Sedgwick County jail, one on suspicion of giving false information and the other on suspicion of false information and official misconduct.
Kansas man ordered to pay child porn victim, mother WICHITA — A federal judge has ordered a convicted child sex predator to pay restitution to the 9-year-old Kansas girl he used to produce pornography. A court filing on Tuesday modified the 260-yearprison sentence handed down in May for 50-yearold Philip Andra Grigsby, of Marquette. U.S. District Judge J. Thomas Marten amended his sentence to include nearly $140,000 in restitution. The figure includes more than $126,000 for the girl and more than $13,000 for her mother. Grigsby pleaded guilty
last year to sexually exploiting a child, possessing child porn and illegally possessing a firearm as a convicted felon. The investigation began after Grigsby sent emails containing child porn to an Australian man. Investigators were able to identify the victim after noticing the name of a middle school on a physical fitness certificate.
Man shot and killed by Topeka police identified TOPEKA — The Shawnee County Sheriff ’s Office identified the man shot and killed by a Topeka police officer as 56-yearold Daniel E. DeLong of Topeka. Police say DeLong was shot Monday after he ran at officers and other apartment residents with a knife. One Topeka officer shot and killed DeLong at the Knightsbridge Manor Apartments. Police Chief Ron Miller said Monday that three officers went to apartment after managers said they were worried about DeLong’s behavior. Miller says DeLong told the officers to go away and then opened his apartment door and ran out with a knife. DeLong died at the scene. The officer who fired the shots is on administrative leave.
Trial delay for woman in alleged WWII flight theft GREAT BEND — The trial of a woman accused of stealing more than $100,000 from a group that flew World War II veter-
ans to Washington D.C. has been delayed because her lawyer said she stopped communicating with him. Robert Anderson, the attorney for LaVeta Dianne Miller of Great Bend, told Barton County District Judge Ron Svaty on Monday that Miller hadn’t communicated with him since her preliminary hearing in April and hadn’t responded to two certified letters, The Great Bend Tribune reported (http://bit. ly/1aUwgZN ). Miller, the former director of Central Prairie RC&D, has pleaded not guilty to two counts of theft by deception in the alleged theft of money from the Honor Flight Program. Miller told the judge she hadn’t worked since the preliminary hearing, has had to move twice and has had trouble paying her bills and with her phone. “I have total faith in Mr. Anderson,” she said. “This is not his fault. It’s mine.” She said with her belongings in boxes after the moves, she hasn’t been able to find documents needed to help with her case. She said she would give Anderson a list of phone numbers for people who could relay messages. After hearing the explanation, Anderson said he would “begrudgingly” stay on as Miller’s attorney. But he said he needed a continuance for the trial, which was scheduled to start in September. Svaty warned Miller if Anderson was not able to reach her “I’m revoking your bond and you’re going to jail. That will solve the problems of contact.”

Troop 41 Boy Scouts attend National Jamboree The National Boy Scout Jamboree is held every four years, this year for the first time it was held at the Summit Bechtel National Scout Reserve in West Virginia.The Jamboree was held from July 15 to 24, and included Boy Scouts from all 50 states, as well as about 60 foreign countries. Troop 41 from Junction City, sent Matt and Pete as part of the larger contingent sent from Coronado Area Council which sent a total of 64 Boy Scouts and eight Scout Leaders from this area. While at the National Boy Scout Jamboree, Boy Scouts tried their hand at various activities such as zip lining, rock climbing, mountain biking, snorkeling, kayaking, whitewater rafting, skateboarding, shooting, and archery not to mention a large variety of merit badges. The Boy Scouts were welcomed by Earl Tomblin the Govenor of West Virginia, Carl XVI Gustav, King of Sweden, and Mike Rowe, from the TV show “Dirty Jobs.” Mike is also an Eagle Scout. The Boy Scouts of America can look forward to the next Boy Scout Jamboree at the “Summit” in 2017, and the International Boy Scout Jamboree there in 2019. The Boy Scouts of America is the premier character development organization, teaching young men timeless values, by following the Scout Law and Oath.
Club notes JC Breakfast Optimist Club The JC Breakfast Optimist Club met Wednesday, July 31, at Stacy’s Restaurant. The meeting was called to order by Vice President, Tom Brungardt. Members recited the “Pledge of Allegiance” and “The Optimist Creed” to begin the meeting. Pastor Nikki Woolsey from the Zion United Church of Christ joined the Club as a new member. The program was presented by Dr. Deb Gustafson, Principal at Ware Elementary School on Fort Riley. Dr. Gustafson has been the Principal of that building for the past 13 years. She anticipates 600 students will be attending the school this year; last year 87 percent of the students were on free/reduced lunches and as many as 29 different languages may be spoken by students in that building. There have been 10 percent of the students receiving Exceptional Student Services. She stated that “there are three installations in the continental United States that are recognized as having quality services for exceptional students and Fort Riley is one of them.” She also mentioned that students who attend Ware “don’t know life without war.” Having one or more parents
deployed repeatedly means not only students, but also the staff has to be taught how to deal with this issue and provide the maximum learning opportunities possible while at the same time being sensitive to the child’s needs. The staff at Ware has had numerous successes with student achievement. Students regularly perform at the 95 percentile or higher on state math and reading tests. Dr. Gustafson shared that teacher collaboration, staff focus meetings, data analysis, a positive climate, caring about each other in a family atmosphere have been some of the contributing factors to their successes. The most important factor is that each person has respect for themselves and others. Ware has received many accolades over the years. A few of them include: National Blue Ribbon School; The Fordham University National Change Award; National Title I Distinguished School; and numerous state Challenge Awards and Standards of Excellence Awards. A quote she shared with Club members that helps guide the staff at Ware is: “Be relentless in your pursuit of student achievement — do whatever it takes — it is the only purpose.” Any person interested in attending a meeting of the J.C. Break-
fast Optimist Club will receive a free breakfast at the first meeting they attend. Points of contact for the Optimist Club to learn more are Kenny Talley at firstname.lastname@example.org or Dr. Ferrell Miller at email@example.com. The “Optimistic Quote” for the week is: “think only of the best, to work only for the best and to expect only the best.” From the Optimist Creed. Submitted by Luise Mathes

Doctors Continued from Page 1A Otoo said. “It’s in Ghana, that’s what started my attraction to medicine in the first place.” Stratton said Velasquez is a semi-permanent physician at GCH during a press conference. The Peru native spent a few years studying with Dr. Ronald Mace. He took over Mace’s practice, after the longtime physician retired recently. Mace practiced medicine for 38 years. “I had the pleasure to work with him for two years,” Velasquez said about the experience, which lasted from 2007 through 2009. “I capitalized and I learned from him.”
FROM PAGE ONE/NEWS Velasquez said it’s a challenge to become familiar with families and patients, but it will get better over time. Although Mace officially retired in June, he’s still coming to the office to see how everything’s going. “He’s very supportive,” Velasquez said. As a child growing up in Peru, he lived with his grandmother and other family members. He watched her become ill and watched many doctors come visit in the home. Using his bandage and alcohol, Velasquez would try to cure her. Unfortunately, she developed Gangrene. It took a year and a half for her to pass away. “While I was talking to

Wave of car bombings in Iraq kills at least 58 B y S inan S alaheddin
Associated Press BAGHDAD — More than a dozen explosions, mainly from car bombs, ripped through marketplaces, parking lots, a cafe and rush-hour crowds in Iraq on Monday, killing at least 58 people and pushing the country’s death toll for the month of July toward the 700 mark, officials said. The bombings — 18 in all — are part of a wave of bloodshed that has swept across the country since April, killing more than 3,000 people and worsening the already strained ties between Iraq’s Sunni minority and the Shiite-led government. The scale and pace of the violence, unseen since the darkest days of the country’s insurgency, have fanned

fears of a return to the widespread sectarian bloodletting that pushed Iraq to the brink of civil war after the 2003 U.S.-led invasion. With two days left in July, the month’s death toll now stands at 680, according to an Associated Press count. Most of those have come during Ramadan, the Muslim holy month of dawn-to-dusk fasting that began July 10, making it Iraq’s bloodiest since 2007. “Iraq is bleeding from random violence, which sadly reached record heights during the holy month of Ramadan,” said acting U.N. envoy to Iraq, Gyorgy Busztin. He said the killings could push the country “back into sectarian strife,” and called for immediate and decisive action to stop the “senseless bloodshed.” There was no immediate claim

Popular ideas that have surfaced in the past centered on the area’s natural beauty, outdoor recreation and the city’s proximity to Fort Riley.
At this year’s retreat, chamber division leaders will provide updates on their projects and goals at the retreat. City, county and Fort Riley officials also presented at last year’s event. Several board members said it would be beneficial to have a representative from Fort Riley speak again to update the community

In addition, the city stores SWAT and community involvement vehicles in the same area. Wolf said the sheriff’s department will work with the JCPD on finding new storage. Officials are looking to lease, rent or buy.
A time frame for a new location has not been set, but Wolf said law enforcement officials are going to take their time searching. “We’re going have this building for a long time, so we want to make sure we get the right one,” Wolf said. Wolf said the departments are looking to spend between $100,000 and $400,000 on a facility. “I’m going to be frugal about this,” Wolf said.

Sunni extremist groups such as al-Qaida’s Iraqi branch, known as the Islamic State of Iraq, frequently use coordinated blasts like those on Monday to try to break Iraqis’ confidence in the Shiite-led government and stir up sectarian tensions. The U.S. Embassy in Baghdad condemned Monday’s attacks, and stressed that the United

Young is the son of former Faith Tabernacle pastor, Edwin Young, whom criminal complaints list as a witness in the cases. According to people involved in the church, Edwin Young “abruptly resigned” in early August, shortly before his son was arrested.

States “stands firmly with Iraq in its fight against terrorism.” Iraq’s violence escalated after an April crackdown by security forces on a Sunni protest camp in the northern town of Hawija that killed 44 civilians and a member of the security forces, according to U.N. estimates. The bloodshed is linked to rising sectarian divisions between Iraq’s Sunnis and Shiites as well as friction between Arabs and Kurds, dampening hopes for a return to normalcy nearly two years after U.S. forces withdrew from the country. Monday’s attacks stretched from Mosul in the north to Baghdad in central Iraq and Basra in the south.

After the Sadr City explosions, ambulances raced to the scene, where rescue teams tended to the wounded and police tried to sift through the rubble. The twisted, mangled wreckage of cars littered the pavement, which in spots was stained red with blood. Ali Khalil, a 36-year-old taxi driver, said he was passing nearby when the first bomb went off. “I heard a thunderous explosion that shook my car and broke the rear window,” Khalil said. “I immediately pulled over and didn’t know what to do ... people were running or lying on the ground.”

MLS All-Star game in KC, 3B
The Daily Union, Thursday, August 1, 2013
In brief NBA
Pelicans sign rookie center Jeff Withey
The New Orleans Pelicans say 7-foot center Jeff Withey has signed his rookie contract. Citing team policy, the club is not releasing the terms of the deal with the former Kansas standout. Withey was drafted by Portland in the second round of the draft, 39th overall, and then traded to New Orleans as part of a three-team deal that also sent guard Tyreke Evans from Sacramento to the Pelicans, while New Orleans dealt center Robin Lopez to Portland and Greivis Vasquez to the Kings. Withey played four years at Kansas, setting the all-time Big 12 mark for blocked shots with 312. He also was the conference’s defensive player of the year the past two seasons.
NFL Pro Bowl rosters to be determined by draft
The NFL Pro Bowl rosters for next year will be selected in a draft by team captains, with Deion Sanders and Jerry Rice assisting as alumni captains. The NFL will abandon the AFC vs. NFC format that has been in place since 1971. The league says Wednesday that fan voting will determine the players in the draft pool. The draft will be televised by the NFL Network on Jan. 22. The game will be played Jan. 26 at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii. Other changes are coming to the game, too. The ball will change hands at the end of each quarter, which could double the opportunities for two-minute drills. Kickoffs (and return specialists) will be eliminated — teams will start on their own 25-yard line. Defenses will be allowed to play cover-2 and press coverage in addition to man, and several clock tweaks have been instituted to speed up the game and prompt offensive play.
Court: College athletes can sue EA over images
A federal appeals court has ruled that video game maker Electronic Arts must face legal claims by college players that it unfairly used their images without compensation. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Wednesday that the Redwood City, Calif., company can’t use the 1st Amendment to shield it from the players’ lawsuit. EA says it plans to appeal. The company had claimed its collegebased sports games were works of arts deserving freedom of expression protection. The court disagreed, ruling the avatars used in the company’s basketball and football games were exact replicas of individual players. The court concluded that the company did little to transform the avatars into works of art. The decision upheld a lower court ruling.

MINNEAPOLIS — Alex Gordon hit a two-out triple in the seventh inning and then scored the go-ahead run for Kansas City on an error by Minnesota, and the Royals won their eighth straight game with a 4-3 victory over the Twins on Wednesday night. The Royals are above .500 at the end of July for the first time since 2003. At 53-51, they are two games over the breakeven mark for the first time since May 17. They remained seven games behind Detroit
in the AL Central race and 4 1/2 games back of secondplace Cleveland, the current holder of the second wild card spot. Jeremy Guthrie (11-7) won his third start in a row with his seventh consecutive appearance of at least six innings. Pedro Florimon homered in the fifth for the Twins, but he struck out with the bases loaded to end the sixth. Then in the seventh, with Gordon on third, the shortstop shuffled to his left to get his body behind a grounder up the middle hit by Eric Hosmer. Please see Royals, 8B

firstname.lastname@example.org Nick Heath cemented his place in Junction City lore on May 8, 2012. The Blue Jays entered the seventh inning trailing Shawnee Heights, the No. 1 ranked team in class 5a, 4-1. By the time Heath stepped to the plate, the N ick score level at H eath four and he had the winning run on base. It was Heath’s responsibility to bring him in. He did more than that, sending the ball over the fence for a tworun victory on senior night. “I don’t think it’s something I’ll ever forget,” Junction City coach Heath Gerstner said of the long ball. Following a stellar high school career, Heath jumped to Northwestern State, a division one program in Louisiana. But instead of making an immediate impact, he took a red shirt this past season in order to ease the adjustment to playing at the top collegiate level. “When you get to college, it’s a whole different thing,” He said. “Guys throw faster, people in general are bigger, faster and stronger. It’s a year for me to get on par with the rest of the players.” So when he arrived to play for the North Folk Ospreys in the Hamptons Collegiate Baseball League in New York this summer, he was afforded the opportunity
to return to playing every day. Heath didn’t waste a moment. He finished the regular season leading the team in batting with a .311 average and has tallied 32 stolen bases. The offensive output helped lift the Ospreys from the league’s cellar following a 2-8 start as the team steadily climbed the standings to finish the regular season in third place. North Folk closed out its semifinal series against Westhampton with a 3-2 win Wednesday to qualify for the Championship series, which takes place this weekend. “I love it (in the Hamptons league),” Heath said. “My teammates are great, the people out here are great, I love the community. I like Long Island, it’s just a great place to be.” Heath first began to catch the eye of colleges because of his raw athletic ability. Coaches are always trying to slip more left-handed hitters into their lineup, so the fact that he’s a southpaw only increased his visibility. Heath patrols the outfield like a
sheriff in an old western movie, hunting down stray baseballs which pose a threat to his team. (He tracks) balls that I think are doubles or triples and him taking them away with his speed,” Gerstner said. “He can glide in the outfield.” Talent was never the issue for Heath, either at the plate or roaming the outfield. Gerstner was more concerned about the internal pressure Heath places on himself to perform. And what would happen if he didn’t find the success that met him back in his days safeguarding Rathert Stadium’s outfield grass. “If you’re 0-25 (at the plate), you have to have fun and a great attitude,” Gerstner said. “And then if you’re 25-25 you have to have the same attitude as if you’re 0-25. And that takes some growth and some Please see Heath, 8B

USA Basketball is moving from Colorado Springs, Colo., to a new facility next to Arizona State University. USA Basketball announced on Wednesday that it will relocate its headquarters and training center to a $350 million development project that will be called USA Place. The 10.5-acre site in downtown Tempe will include a 4,500-seat event center, a 330-room hotel, 500 luxury apartments, a 30,000-square-foot conference center and 200,000 square feet of office space.
ST. JOSEPH, Mo. — The Kansas City Chiefs will call some running plays eventually, even if it doesn’t happen until the last week of training camp. Jamaal Charles has been assured of it. That doesn’t mean the Pro Bowl running back hasn’t been busy the first week of practice. After running for more than 1,500 yards last season in his return from a devastating knee injury, Charles now is getting a chance to showcase his versatility. He’s been catching plenty of balls out of the backfield while also lining up at wide receiver for new coach Andy Reid. “I’m not even worrying about running right now,” Charles said after Tuesday’s practice. “We’re focused on getting the chemistry down with the quarterback.” Jessica Stewart • The Associated Press/St. Joeseph News-Press That may be more important for Charles than ever Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Nico Johnson tries to bring before.

Royals acquire OF Maxwell for minor leaguer B y DAVE SKRETTA
Associated Press KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Kansas City Royals acquired outfielder Justin Maxwell from the Houston Astros for minor league pitcher Kyle Smith on Wednesday in an attempt to upgrade their depth for the stretch run. The speedy Maxwell was expected to join the Royals in time for the series finale Thursday in Minnesota. Kansas City will have to make a corresponding roster move. The Royals were seeking a righthanded outfielder prior to the nonwaiver trade deadline, and at least on paper achieved their goal. Maxwell is hitting just .214 with two homers and eight RBIs in 40 games this season, but he’s hitting .302 against left-handed pitchers. Kansas City had won seven straight entering Wednesday night’s game at Minnesota, climbing above .500 and positioning itself to play meaningful baseball in August for the first time since 2003, when the club finished 83-79 for its only winning season since 1993. Still, the Royals were 7 1/2 games out of first place, so there was just as much speculation that they’d be sellers at the trade deadline as chatter about picking up some help. Right-hander Ervin Santana was the name brought up most often in trade rumors. He’s in the final year of his contract and could be too costly for the Royals in free agency, especially after a resurgent season. Santana is 7-6 with a career-best 3.03 ERA. Santana had made it clear that he wanted to remain with the Royals, though, and even counted down the minutes on Twitter until the 4 p.m. EDT trade deadline had passed. “Yessssssss!!!!!!,” Santana tweeted afterward. “Lets go get em!!!!!” Well, the Royals will go get ‘em with a new outfielder to help out. Along with upgrading at second base, where options in the trade market were limited, the Royals were hoping to get a right-handed bat to balance out their lefty-heavy lineup. Maxwell fits the bill for relatively cheap: He’s making $492,500 if he spends the entire season in the majors, and the Royals will have him under control through 2016. Maxwell’s career has so far been filled with more downs than ups. He broke into the big leagues as a 23-year-old with the Nationals in 2007, but only played in 108 games over the next three seasons. He was traded to the Yankees in 2011 and then claimed off waivers by Houston, where he’s spent the past two seasons.

Crash kills Texas A&M lineman, Utah recruit, teen B y RUSSELL CONTRERAS and KRISTIE RIEKEN
Associated Press Damontre Moore helped recruit Polo Manukainiu to Texas A&M and remembered the day the two met. Manukainiu was still in high school, even then a fearsome figure at 6-foot-5 and some 275 pounds. Beneath that mammoth frame, though, was a young man with sweet and caring personality, a huge smile and kind words for everyone fortunate enough to know him. “He was this huge kid,” Moore told The Associated Press in a phone interview from New York Giants training camp. “I’d been in college already for like two years and he was this huge monster who had at least two inches over me and he was so intimidating. And when he talked he was the kindest person in the world. He was like the gentle giant.” Texas A&M said Tuesday that Manukainiu, a 19-yearold redshirt freshman for the Aggies, was among three people killed in a single-car rollover crash in the high desert of northern New Mexico, stunning both schools just days before fall practices begin. Also killed where 18-year-old Utah recruit Gaius “Keio” Vaenuku and 13-year-old Andrew “Lolo” Uhatafe. The wreck happened Monday evening on U.S. 550 near Cuba, N.M., about 85 miles north of Albuquerque, as the group of five was returning from Salt Lake City to suburban Dallas, where three of them had ties to prep football power Trinity High School in Euless. The southbound 2002 Toyota Sequoia drifted off the sagebrush-lined highway, New Mexico State Police spokesman Emmanuel T. Gutierrez said. The driver, 18-year-old Siaosi Salesi Uhatafe Jr. of Euless, over-corrected, causing the vehicle to lose control and roll several times. Alcohol wasn’t involved and it appeared the driver was the only one wearing a seatbelt, investigators said. Manukainiu and Andrew Uhatafe died at the scene after they were ejected from the vehicle, Gutierrez said. Vaenuku was pronounced dead in an ambulance that responded to the accident. The driver and his father, Salesi Uhatafe, were taken to the San Juan Medical Center in Farmington, N.M., and suffered only minor injuries, authorities said. Siaosi Uhatafe was a stepbrother of Manukainiu and, like Vaenuku, also is a Utah recruit. Manukainiu had apparently traveled to Salt Lake City for some relaxation, tweeting Sunday: “It’s always good to get away from the Texas Heat for the weekend. Utah got that breezeeeeeee.” On Monday, hours before the accident, he tweeted: “22 hour drive back to Texas on no sleep. Oh my.” Manukainiu played football at Trinity High and was part of the Aggies’ 2012 signing class. He was a recreation, parks and tourism science major, the school said, and is survived by his mother, Lima Uhatafe of Euless. “We lost a terrific young man,” Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin said. “Polo was loved by his teammates and coaches. Anyone who came in contact with him was struck by his sense of humor and smile. My heart aches for his mom and family members.” He was very close to his family, even bringing them on his recruiting trip to College Station and constantly checking on them while on his official visit. He was proud to be an Aggie, and Moore said he never complained when he was redshirted last season and toiled through months on the scout team. “He put the team before himself,” Moore said. “He was just overall, a good, gentle and loyal person. He was more than a teammate. He was like a brother to everybody. Everybody just loved being around him.” Texas A&M finished last season ranked No. 5 after an 11-2 season, their first in the Southeastern Conference.

In this Oct. 21, 2011 photo, Trinity senior defensive lineman Polo Manukainiu (94) rushes Grapevine junior quarterback Brett Harbin (10) during a high school football game at Pennington Field in Bedford, Texas. They were led by quarterback Johnny Manziel, who became the first freshman to win the Heisman Trophy, and are expected to be highly ranked again this year. “Heart hurts waking up to news about Polo,” Manziel tweeted on Tuesday. “I think I speak for everyone on our team when I say we love you brother you will be missed.” It is the second such tragedy for Texas A&M in less than two years: Senior offensive lineman Joseph Villavisencio, 22, was killed in a December 2011 car accident after veering head-on into the path of an 18-wheeler 40 miles from College Station. He had spent part of that day delivering gifts to families at a local shelter. Manziel mentioned Villavisencio during his Heisman acceptance speech last year.
“It’s mind-boggling that this has happened to this team twice in such a short time,” Moore said. “It’s such a crucial time with all the expectations for the season and I hope this will bring the team closer together and make them cherish everybody around them and just realize that they’ve got to live every day like it’s their last.” Vaenuku was a defensive tackle who had planned to play one year at Utah before going on a two-year Mormon mission. “Everyone who knew Gaius is heartbroken today,” Utah coach Kyle Whittingham said. “He was the kind of young man who lit up a room and his future in football and life had no boundaries. Words cannot express our devastation over the loss of Gaius.” Vaenuku was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and considered playing at churchowned Brigham Young but he said he felt more at home in Salt Lake City playing for the Utes. His mother, Cela Vaenuku, said the last time she spoke to him was on Sunday — a brief conversation on how he had spent his day. “He was a wonderful son,” she said. “He was very social, very outgoing young man and a people person who always made people laugh.” She said he was the third oldest among seven brothers and sisters, and “they took it very hard” when they heard the news of his death. She said her son had planned to be dormitory roommates with Siaosi Utahafe, the driver. The news stunned Trinity High in Euless, where Manukainiu, Vaenuku and Siaosi Utahafe all played football. The team has been one of the best in Texas in recent years, with three state titles in a span of five seasons from 2005-09 and a trip to the championship game in 2010. Principal Mike Harris said the deaths have affected a majority of the Euless community, where there is a tightknit Polynesian community. “They were students with bright smiles that everybody knew and everybody loved,” the principal said.

AS Roma routs best of MLS in All-Star game B y DAVE SKRETTA
what transpired the last few days, it was a great opportunity.” The MLS had been 7-2-1 against international opponents since the league adopted the current All-Star game format, the only losses coming to English Premier League club Manchester United. Maybe it’ll think twice about inviting Italy’s top teams. “You give these guys a half-second or a half-step and you’re not all together after one training session, it’s tough,” MLS defender Matt Besler said. “These guys are world class.” Most of a sellout crowd had barely found its seats at Sporting Park, the $200 million home of Sporting KC, when Florenzi sent a pass ahead to Strootman. Sporting KC defender Aurelien Collin recovered to get his foot on the ball, but Strootman still managed to guide it into the net. The goal took much of the zip out of the home crowd, which had been feverishly waving flags and pounding drums during its second All-Star game in two years. Major League Baseball staged its Midsummer Classic just across the state line at the Royals’ Kauffman Stadium last July. The two second-half goals by Roma only served to seal a joyless night for the MLS during an otherwise positive period of growth and progress. Stadiums are in the works for D.C. United and San Jose, and an expansion club will start play in New York in 2015. The Columbus Crew were sold to ambitious new owners earlier this week, and Commissioner Don Garber announced at halftime Wednesday night that four expansion franchises will begin play by the 2020 season, bringing the total number of teams in the league to 24. There’s perhaps no better example of how far the league has come than Kansas City, which once played its games before a few thousand fans in cavernous Arrowhead Stadium. The team was sold to local owners in 2006, and they embarked on a dramatic rebranding of the franchise formerly known as the Wizards. They spearheaded the construction of one of the most glamorous soccer-specific stadiums in the country, built a feverish fan base and became one of the most successful teams on the field — the club has won two straight Eastern Conference titles. It was little surprise that Kansas City was awarded this year’s All-Star game, and even less of a surprise that there was plenty of hometown flavor throughout the night. Not only was the MLS side led by Sporting KC’s Vermes, the coach also included three of his own in the starting line-
Associated Press KANSAS CITY, Kan. — A raucous crowd packed into one of Major League Soccer’s glitzy new stadiums to watch a team comprised of its best players on a picturesque latesummer night. All that was missing was the outcome fans desired. Italian powerhouse AS Roma, led by longtime star Francesco Totti, scored 4 minutes into the game Wednesday night, then added two second-half goals to rout a team of MLS AllStars 3-1 and dampen what had been a festive celebration of soccer in Kansas City. Kevin Strootman and Alessandro Florenzi each had a goal and an assist, and Junior Tallo also scored for Roma, the three-time Serie A champions. Omar Gonzalez of the Los Angeles Galaxy scored the only goal for the MLS side in second-half stoppage time. “Every time you step inside the white lines you want to win, but I don’t think the result was the focus,” said MLS coach Peter Vermes. “When you look at the overall picture of

Collin was joined by forward Graham Zusi and fellow defender Besler, who helped the U.S. national team win the CONCACAF Gold Cup over the weekend. The club also paid homage to its roots by introducing Tony Meola and Preki, longtime staples of the Wizards, as they presented the trophy prior to the game. “To have the kind of players we had on the field tonight is really fun, and to have guys like Thierry Henry in our locker room is quite an honor,” said Robb Heineman, the CEO of Sporting KC. Once the game started, there was little for MLS fans to feel good about. Strootman’s early goal set the tone as Roma attacked the MLS side’s shoddy defense with pressure right up the middle. Florenzi had a goal taken away moments later by a close off-sides call, and then missed an open shot just wide of the net a few minutes later.

O.J. Simpson wins small victory in bid for freedom B y S andra C hereb
Associated Press CARSON CITY, Nev. — O.J. Simpson won a small victory Wednesday in his bid for freedom as Nevada granted him parole on some of his 2008 convictions for kidnapping and armed robbery involving the holdup of two sports memorabilia dealers at a Las Vegas hotel room. But the decision doesn’t mean Simpson will be leaving prison anytime soon. The former NFL star was convicted on multiple charges and still faces at least four more years behind bars on sentences that were ordered to run consecutively. The Nevada Board of Parole Commissioners released its decision in favor of Simpson’s parole request Wednesday. Commissioners noted Simpson’s “positive institutional record” and his participation in programs addressing “behavior that led to incarceration.” “We expected it,” Patricia Palm, one of Simpson’s current lawyers, told The Associated Press shortly after the order was issued. “There is no reason not to grant him parole. I’m glad they did what they should have done.” Palm said Simpson called from prison to let her know of the board’s decision. “He’s very happy and grateful,” she said. The parole becomes effective Oct. 2. Then, Simpson will begin serving the minimum term on four concurrent sentences imposed for using a weapon during the 2007 robbery. He will have another parole hearing on those sentences in a year. After that, he has two more consecutive terms for assault with a deadly weapon, said David Smith, spokesman for the board. The board noted Simpson had no previous criminal convictions and still has consecutive sentences to serve. Simpson was tried for murder but acquitted in Los Angeles for the 1994 death of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend Ronald Goldman. Simpson appeared before a two-member Nevada parole panel last Thursday to plead for leniency. He expressed regret for his actions and said he’s tried to be a model inmate while behind bars. Lovelock Correctional Center officials say he’s had no disciplinary actions against him. Simpson was convicted in December 2008 on charges including kidnapping, robbery, burglary and assault with a deadly weapon. He was sentenced to nine to 33 years for the 2007 stick up of two memorabilia dealers, Alfred Beardsley and Bruce Fromong. Simpson still faces time for four weapon enhancement sentences, following by consecutive terms for two counts of assault with a deadly weapon. During last week’s parole hearing, a graying Simpson told Parole Commissioner Susan Jackson and hearing officer Robin Bates, a retired Nevada prison warden, that he was sorry for his actions. “I just wish I never went to that room,” the 66-year-old Simpson said. He added he has made amends with Beardsley and Fromong. While in prison, Simpson has earned pennies an hour working in the prison gym, keeping equipment sanitized, and umpiring and coaching games in the prison yard. He said he made a promise to the warden when he arrived at Lovelock, 90 miles east of Reno, that he would be the “best person” they ever had at the facility. He added, “I think for the most part I’ve kept my word on that.” Simpson also said he’s acted as jailhouse counselor of sorts to other inmates, some of whom are serving time for similar crimes. But he said his deed was different. “They were trying to steal other people’s property,” Simpson said of other prisoners. “They were trying to steal other people’s money. “My crime was trying to retrieve for my family my own property.” While Simpson remains behind bars, his best chance at freedom lies with Clark County District Judge Linda Marie Bell, who is considering whether he deserves a new trial. During a May hearing, Palm and Ozzie Fumo, Simpson’s current lawyers, argued that his trial attorney, Yale Galanter, botched Simpson’s defense and had a conflict of interest in the case. Bell has yet to issue a decision. If she rules in Simpson’s favor, prosecutors will have to decide wither to retry him, offer a plea deal, or set him free with credit for time served.

PUBLIC NOTICE OF PENDING KANSAS WATER POLLUTION CONTROL PERMIT AND AUTHORIZATION TO DISCHARGE UNDER THE NATIONAL POLLUTANT DISCHARGE ELIMINATION SYSTEM The Kansas Department of Health and Environment has prepared a draft National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System permit for the Fort Riley Military Installation to discharge treated wastewater into Three Mile Creek via various Named and Unnamed Tributaries, Kansas River Basin The proposed action consists of re-issuance of an existing Kansas/NPDES permit for an existing facility. Fort Riley is a government-owned, government operated military installation consisting of activities and facilities for housing, training, and supporting trained and ready forces to meet Joint Force requirements. This permit covers the discharge of on-site generated wastewater treated in the following wastewater treatment facilities: 001X1 Custer Hill Wastewater Treatment Plant (CHWWTP) - The CHWWTP influent is primarily do mestic wastewater but also includes vehicle and aircraft maintenance area wastewater, other industrial process wastewater and some septage. The design flow is 2.35 mgd. Flows from Camps Forsyth and Funston and Main Post have been di verted from the CHWWTP to the new Camp Funston WWTP reducing the flow to the CHWWTP to about 0.67 mgd. The CHWWTP includes two automatic and one manual bar screens, a grit chamber, a three concentric channel activated sludge reactor (Orbal), two secondary clarifiers, two UV channels through two flow meters, and a cascade aeration system. Waste activated sludge and floating scum from the clarifiers is directed to an aerated holding tank, a gravity belt thickener, three aerobic digesters, a digested sludge holding tank, and a belt filter press. The belt filter press solids can be either land applied, transported to a landfill, or stored in concrete-lined sludge drying beds at the old Custer Hill WWTP. 004A1 Central Vehicle Wash Facility (CVWF) Lagoon System - The CVWF Lagoon System is an industrial wastewater treatment system that provides treatment for sediment, grit, oil, and wash water generated from the CVWF and Tactical Equipment Shop (TES) wash racks. The CVWF Lagoon System consists of the “Old Wash Rack Reservoir” and four lagoon cells. The CVWF consists of three stages, a pre-wash assembly area, a bird-bath, and a post-wash area. The bird-bath is connected to a two-cell concrete basin and an oil water separator. Post wash is connected to a separate concrete sediment basin. Overflow from the bird-bath and post-wash basins discharge into Cell #1 of the 4 cell lagoon system. The Custer Hill industrial wastewater collection system consists of 10 industrial facilities (motor pools, TES, fuel depots) connected to the east concrete basin, 4 motor pool and TES facilities connected to the middle concrete basin, and 8 motor pool and TES facilities connected to the west concrete basin. Each concrete basin has an oil/water separator that discharges into the “Old Wash Rack Reservoir”. The “Old Wash Rack Reservoir” (OWRR) also receives stormwater run-off from the CVWF and the Custer Hill industrial wastewater collection system. There is an occasional controlled discharge from the final cell (Cell #4) to surface waters at a design/average flow of 0.0098 mgd and emergency overflows from Cells #2 and #3. Multipurpose Range Complex Wastewater Lagoon - This is a non-discharging wastewater stabilization lagoon system that treats domestic wastes from units associated with the Multipurpose Range Complex. This lagoon network is composed of two primary cells and one inactive secondary cell. The proposed permit contains limits for biochemical oxygen demand, total suspended solids, ammonia, E. coli, oil & grease, whole effluent toxicity, and pH, as well as monitoring for total phosphorus, nitrate + nitrite, total Kjeldahl nitrogen, total nitrogen, total recoverable heavy metals, TPH-diesel range organics, sulfate, chloride, volatile organic chemicals, and flow. Contained in the permit is a schedule of compliance requiring the permittee provide KDHE with an acceptable plan and schedule to redirect all flow from this facility to the Camp Funston Advanced WWTP or submit an operation study to assess the feasibility for this facility to meet the nutrient goals as set out in the permit. Copies of the City's application, draft permit, fact sheets and other pertinent documents may be requested by writing: Kansas Department of Health and Environment, TSS - Permit Clerk, Bureau of Water, 1000 SW Jackson St., Suite 420, Topeka, KS 66612. Persons wishing to comment on the draft permit must submit written statements to the above address by August 31, 2013. A1008 8/1, 2013

The Daily Union. Thursday, August 1, 2013
Student’s actions will be louder than words Dear Annie: I’m a senior in college and live at home. My parents, especially my father, are controlling and overly attached to me. I’ve had enough and am planning on moving away the second I graduate, but my family doesn’t seem to get this. They tell me about graduate schools and full-time job opportunities in or near our town. They’ve offered to let me live rent-free in the house if I stay in the area after college. These “suggestions” are starting to pile up, and graduation seems so far away. I can’t let myself fall into the same trap that got me to stay with them at the start of college. How do I say I’m leaving for good? — Nobody’s Baby Boy Dear Nobody: Your parents don’t “get it” because they see no indication that you are leaving anytime soon. They’ll believe it when it happens. While many kids would appreciate their parents’ offer to stay rent-free, we agree that you should strike out on your own. Loving parents guide their children to be independent. You don’t need to keep saying you are moving out. Simply save your money and find a place you can afford, in whatever city you prefer. Research job and educational opportunities. What you cannot do is expect your parents to cover your expenses when you no longer live at home. Good luck. Dear Annie: I’m a married female in my early 50s and haven’t had a real friend in more than 20 years. It’s not a question of meeting people. They just don’t seem to gravitate toward me. I’m considerate and clean and have a good sense of humor. I’m a bit on the shy and quiet side, but I’m friendly and a sympathetic listener. I have often made the first move and invited someone to join me for lunch. They accept and seem to enjoy our time together, but they never reciprocate. At work, everyone seems to buddy up with someone else, and though everyone appears to like me, I have no buddy of my own. I’ve been to counseling twice and have read books on making friends, and neither has helped. I appreciate that I have a good marriage, a good job, great kids and a nice home, but the absence of just one good friend saddens me greatly. Do you have any advice? — Lonely for Friends Dear Lonely: It can take a long time to get to know someone in middle age, when friendships are already

entrenched from work, church and community. You would need to make a greater effort, inviting someone for lunch several times, before the comfort level promotes a closer friendship. In the meantime, please look into the Red Hat Society (redhatsociety.org) and meetup.com for people in your area who are actively looking to make new friends. Dear Annie: Your answer to “Loved the Show, Disliked the Seat,” the person whose seat at a Broadway show was partially taken over by a “rather large” woman, was totally off the mark. You said to show tolerance. That’s absurd. The person whose personal seating space is being invaded needs to go to an usher or, better yet, to management and request another seat. Chair arms at performance spaces are there for a reason. If someone feels that he or she needs more space than the establishment has allotted, he or she should make arrangements for special seating. Obese people are required to buy two seats on airplanes. Why not do the same for theaters and sports stadiums? — Been Sat On at a Performance, Too Dear Sat On: Going to an usher or management is a perfectly valid way to address this. Unfortunately, it usually necessitates missing part of the show to locate someone in authority and finding equally desirable, unoccupied seats elsewhere. Charging double for theater seats is an argument we don’t have space for here.

Horoscope People with a calling often insist that everyone has a calling. But what about when you can’t hear the call? This is the case for many right now. Assume that the “caller” is asleep and that it’s time to have a little fun. The Gemini moon encourages conversation, sharing and taking part in the games of the moment. Candy Crush, anyone? ARIES (March 21-April 19). The fast lane forces everyone to go fast because the flow of traffic will endanger you if you don’t. Because you prefer to go at your own speed, not a speed that’s dictated by those around you, getting out of the fast lane may be wise. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The things that scare you might be worth doing. You’re in a particularly bold mood today and are likely to leap from the high dive into the warm swimming pool of life. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You don’t mind if, once in a while, your loved ones get a little bossy or speak to you in an intimate kind of shorthand that’s less than polite. But if it happens more than not, start sticking up for yourself or it will only get worse. CANCER (June 22-July 22). In order to act when it’s time, you have to know when it’s time. Trust yourself. The temptation to move too soon or too late is ever-present, but only if you don’t trust yourself. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You may wish for a laboratory to try out your ideas. This could be as simple as a table and a few supplies or as elaborate as a fully staffed company. It begins with today’s wish. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). With fame comes gossip. Is it worth it? You’d rather be anonymous than have to think about everything you
say and how it might be construed and what it will look like to others if you’re simply yourself. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your gentle courtesy will bring you to the top of a list. Finally you’re being considered for the position you really deserve, and you didn’t have to brag about yourself to get here. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Usually disinclined to make foolish moves, today something impulsive in you wants to put it all on the line. It might be argued that by risking everything you are making sure that you have fully lived. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’re not about to count your blessings as blessings until the end game is upon you, and even then you won’t really know. So instead you’ll enjoy what is. For now, it’s safe to say, “It’s all good.” CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Aim high and usually your arrow still winds up at ground level. But the view it will witness between the sky and the dirt will be far broader and more interesting than if you hadn’t shot into the sky. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). An imaginary encounter with yourself will be better than an actual encounter with the one you think is standing in your way. It turns out that moving yourself out of the way will clear your path of all other obstacles. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Between thinking and doing is planning. You don’t need a written agenda for this day to go smoothly, but it honestly wouldn’t hurt. You’ll save yourself time in the end because writing helps you remember key details.

Royals Continued from Page 1B Florimon failed to pick up the ball, though, as his momentum carried him past it. Gordon scored, and so did Hosmer one batter later on Billy Butler’s single off reliever Caleb Thielbar (1-1). Aaron Hicks took a bad angle toward Gordon’s drive off the center field wall, and the ball ricocheted past him to let Gordon get another base. Guthrie improved to 7-3 in his career against the Twins, including 3-1 this season. He surrendered six hits, two runs and two walks in six innings while striking out five. The Twins started the sixth with three straight singles and tied the game on Chris Herrmann’s one-out walk. But Hicks popped out to second base, and Florimon fanned on three pitches. The Royals, who have the league’s second-best team ERA, have relied on their rotation for this midsummer surge. The starters have allowed 11 earned runs in 72 innings over the last eight games. Ryan Doumit and Trevor Plouffe greeted Kelvin Herrera in the eighth inning with doubles, slicing the lead to 4-3. Hicks added a one-out infield single. But Aaron Crow came in to strike out the last two batters. Greg Holland pitched the ninth for his 28th save in 30 tries. Joe Mauer took second base on a one-out single and a throwing error by shortstop Alcides Escobar, but Justin Morneau and Ryan Doumit struck out to end the game. The Royals are 9-3 against the Twins this season and 26-19 against the division. Twins starter Kevin Correia gave up 10 hits over six innings, but he struck out three without a walk and somehow limited the damage to two runs on an RBI single by Miguel Tejada and a sacrifice fly by Butler. Tejada was thrown out at home on a comebacker to the mound, Hosmer was thrown out at third on the sacrifice fly and Butler grounded into a double play. David Lough was
Heath Continued from Page 1B maturity. I know he’s done that, I’ve talked to his mother. It’s never easy, progress takes struggle, he definitely struggled this past year but he took another step forward.” Heath stays balanced by focusing on doing what’s best for his team instead of searching for individual accolades during the summer months. “Obviously baseball is a game of failure and not everyone is going to succeed,” He said. “So I just work on doing the best I can and being really good at controlling what I can control not letting what I can’t control affect me as much as I used to.” Heath wants to use what he’s learned from playing alongside others from across the nation this sum-
mer in New York and take it back to Louisiana to share it with his teammates. He’s hopeful the experience will help him when he steps into the batters box against division one pitching for the first time in an actual game in the spring. The ambitious Heath hopes playing and having success against top competition will help springboard him to the professional level. But for now, his focus is on the upcoming championship and then helping Northwestern State qualify for the postseason. “I have a little more knowledge of the game and how they do things,” He said. “I feel like I’m a lot better teammate then I used to be, not so self-centered, more concerned about the team and how we’re going to do overall and what I can do for help.”
SPORTS caught stealing, too. The streak helped the Royals keep their roster intact after the non-waiver trade deadline. They even added some depth, acquiring Justin Maxwell from Houston to bring in a speedy right-handed batter who can play all three outfield spots. The Twins didn’t trade anyone off their major league roster, either, to the temporary relief of Morneau, the cornerstone first baseman who hasn’t been the same since the concussion that ended his 2010 season. Morneau, though, noted the remaining possibility he could be dealt in August by clearing waivers. He’s in the final year of his contract. Despite being out of the playoff chase for a third straight season, the Twins weren’t able to persuade a contender to give up a prospect or two for one of their veterans. Correia and fellow starting pitcher Mike Pelfrey were among the top candidates to be moved, along with Morneau, Doumit and a few relievers. But all general manager Terry Ryan ended up doing was dealing minor league catcher Drew Butera to the Los Angeles Dodgers. “I told Pelfrey that he was supposed to be part of the Dodger trade, but they have a time limit on their games,” manager Ron Gardenhire quipped before the game. “Trying to loosen the tension in here, and he laughed so that was good and we can move forward from there.” NOTES: The Royals rested 2B Chris Getz (sore left knee) and CF Lorenzo Cain (sore groin) again as a precaution, but manager Ned Yost said they’ve both improved. He said he’d probably wait until Friday to play Getz. ... Florimon has seven homers, just three off the team lead, shared by Trev-

Charles Continued from Page 1B
The longtime Eagles coach helped pioneer the use of the running back in the passing game, first with Brian Westbrook and later with LeSean McCoy. In fact, Westbrook went five consecutive seasons with at least 50 grabs, and in 2007 caught 90 passes for 771 yards and five touchdowns. That year, Westbrook led the NFL in yards from scrimmage and was first-team All-Pro. “Jamaal is a big part of it,” Reid said. “He’s capable of doing the same things Westbrook did (and) McCoy did, as far as the passing game. He’s a legitimate threat with his speed, his route-running ability and his hands. He catches the ball very easily.” Charles certainly has had his hands full on the practice fields of Missouri Western State University. He’s become a favorite target for Smith, in part because the offensive line has been struggling to hold off the pass rush, resulting in a lot of short throws Charles’ way. “The thing that jumped out to me the most is his ability in the pass game,” Smith said. “He’s a really versatile player. He’s a match-up mismatch with the football in his hands, all over the field. I don’t think there’s really any situation in football you couldn’t have him in.” Smith got a glimpse of something similar in 2010, when he was with the 49ers. Westbrook had joined the team that season for what turned out to be the final year of his career. “Jamaal helps us expand our playbook because he can do so much,” Smith said, “and he can really become a weapon for us in all phases, not just running the football.” Running the football is still what Charles does best, though. Nobody disputes that. His ability to slash through the smallest of creases and then use his world-class speed to run past defenders has made him one of the most dynamic playmakers in the NFL, someone who twice ran for more than 200 yards in a game last season. So even though the Chiefs have been calling almost exclusively passing plays during training camp, Charles is confident they’ll still call plenty of running plays for him this season. If that’s the case, he’ll certainly be a busy running back. NOTES: WR Dwayne Bowe limped off the field late in practice with cramps. RB Cyrus Gray (foot) and OL Colin Kelly (knee) will have MRI exams after going down. DE Mike Catapano left practice with a strained calf. ... S Quintin Demps remained with the first-team defense in place of Eric Berry (hamstring), who only did a little bit of work before leaving practice. CB Dunta Robinson (hamstring) also tried to do some work before sitting out the rest of practice. ... The Chiefs waived CB Buddy Jackson, who’d been limited in practice by a sore hamstring.
