Squirrel causes power outage One small rodent is getting the blame for a massive power outage in southern and eastern sections of Wichita. KAKE-TV reports nearly 10,000 customers of Westar Energy were affected by the outage Monday afternoon. Authorities say a squirrel crawled into equipment at a substation, causing a transformer to blow out. A fire then broke out at the substation. Firefighters were quickly able to bring it under control. Power was restored to the Westar customers in about one hour.

m.editor Harvard filmmaker John Alexander believes he may have the perfect description for the movie idea that has consumed his life for the past year — “Little House on the Prairie” meets “Psycho.” Co-writers of an original screenplay, Alexander and JC Guest and their small 6-member crew are in the Geary County area to tell a piece of Kansas history in their Alfred Hitchcock-type suspense film “The Bender Claim.” It was the 1870s and along the Osage Trail, travelers were disappearing. “We basically dug up this material when we were at Harvard,” Alexander said. “We wanted to do a real story. We were looking at legends of

“The Bender Claim” is based on a true story of the Bender family in Southeastern Kansas in the 1870s. They settled the land and “claimed “ people. Filmmaker John Alexander said there is some blood in the movie, but most is in the moviegoers imagination. “All the blood is in your imagination,” he said. “What is scary is what you don’t see.” the west and we found this.” According to Guest and Alexander, the Benders were considered a fine and wholesome family. That was until the disappearances were traced to them. By the time a posse headed out to the homesteader’s home, the family was gone. However, the posse found some-

thing — several bodies buried behind the home. “There are a lot of theories and rumors about what happened,” Alexander said. “The mystery is what is interesting, but we are telling it as a suspense ... a psychological thriller set in the old west.” During a visit to Kansas about a year ago, the pair decided this was the place it had to be filmed. Alexander said fellow filmmakers and others suggested it be shot in California because it would supposedly be easier and better, but Alexander and Guest disagreed. Driving from North Carolina and documenting with photographs all along the way, they realized the Flint Hills area provided exactly what they were looking for. Please see Bender, 8A

Geary County unemployment rises B y D aily U nion S taf f Unemployment in Geary County continued its recent roller coaster ride last month, rising to 7.2 percent. The upward tick came after the unemployment rate in April dropped to 6.2 percent from 6.8 percent in March. Overall, Kansas saw its not seasonally adjusted rate increase from 5.3 per-

cent in April to 5.8 percent in May. The Kansas Department of Labor attributed much of the increase to seasonal changes. The state’s seasonally adjusted rate increased slightly to 5.7 percent from 5.6 percent last month. “Over the past two months, there has been an increase in the seasonally adjusted labor force numbers,” Kansas Secretary of Labor Lana Gordon stated

in a press release. “The increase in the labor force suggests that Kansas have confidence in the ability of the economy to provide employment opportunities.” On a regional level, the Manhattan Metropolitan Statistical Area’s (Manhattan MSA) unemployment rate increased to 5.7 percent in May from 4.8 percent in April. The Manhattan MSA includes Riley, Pottawatomie and Geary

counties. Riley County’s unemployment rate increased to 5.1 percent in May from 4.1 percent in April, while Pottawatomie County’s increased to 5.6 percent from 4.9 percent. Numbers for all three counties were up from a year ago, too. The May 2012 unemployment rate was 6.2 percent in Geary County, 4.7 percent in Pottawatomie County and 4.3 percent in Riley County.

County official are moving forward with plans regarding a law that allows the carrying of weapons into public places. Kansas House Bill 2052 has been an ongoing discussion with Geary County officials and other local governments across the state. It allows people with conceal-and-carry permits to carry guns into public buildings such as the courthouse and county offices, if there are no metal detectors or security guards at entrances. The law goes into effect July 1. “It’s an hot item all over the state because of public buildings, courthouses, meeting rooms and schools,” Commission Chair Ben Bennett said. “We’re all in a situation where have to figure out how we’re going to have inspections or check-ins for every one that enters the building.” County Attorney Steve Opat submitted a letter to Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt to receive a six-month extension to prepare a safety plan to verify that no one has weapons. Opat said it was important for the commissioners to financially plan to implement changes. Cost is a concern because the upgrades is going to require spending money for equipment and personnel. The cost is currently unknown.

Former Faith Tabernacle Music Director Jordan Young today is expected to appear in court for status hearings in six alleged child molestation cases. Geary County Assistant Attorney Michelle Brown, the lead prosecutor in the case, has said she believes the cases soon will move past the status hearing stage. “The next hearing will be the last status hearing,” B r o w n said June 4 following Yo u n g ’ s latest status hearing. “We will know what direction these J ordan cases are Y oung going to go by the next hearing.” Junction City police first arrested Young last August. He since has been held at the Geary County Detention Center on a $1.2 million bond. The next pretrial stage would be a preliminary hearing, during which a judge would determine whether probable cause exists to send the cases to trial. Brown said she and Young’s attorney, Thomas Lemon, have been discussing how preliminary hearings would proceed and whether the cases could be resolved before a trial. The alleged incidents for which charges have been filed spanned from 2008 to last year. Charges against Young range in severity from indecent solicitation of a child to aggravated criminal sodomy.

A federal judge on Monday set a May 2014 trial date for a northeast Kansas doctor accused of having unlicensed employees dispense hundreds of prescriptions for morphine, oxycodone and other controlled drugs. U.S. District Judge Julie Robinson set the trial date during a brief hearing after federal prosecutors and attorneys for 53-yearold Michael P. Schuster, of Manhattan, agreed on the timing. Assistant U.S. Attorney Tanya Treadway told the judge that she expects the trial to last two weeks. A federal grand jury indicted Schuster last month on four counts: conspiracy to illegally distribute controlled substances, drug distribution, unlawfully distributing drugs to a person under 21 years old and using and maintaining a premise for drug distribution. In addition to a potential prison sentence, prosecutors are seeking forfeiture of money and property linked to the crimes.

A sign advertising pricing for different types of gasoline is pictured at a gas station in Oklahoma City. A high blend of ethanol gasoline, E15, which contains 5 percent more ethanol than the 10 percent norm sold at most U.S. gas stations, is sold in just 20 stations in six Midwestern states. But sales could spread as the Obama administration considers whether to require more ethanol in gasoline; it’s cheaper and cleaner but it could damage older cars and motorcycles.

WASHINGTON — It’s a dilemma for drivers: Do they choose a gasoline that’s cheaper and cleaner even if, as opponents say, it could damage older cars and motorcycles? That’s the peril and promise of a high-ethanol blend of gasoline known as E15. The fuel contains 15 percent ethanol, well above the current 10 percent norm sold at most U.S. gas stations. The higher ethanol blend is currently sold in fewer than two dozen stations in the Midwest, but could spread to other regions as the Obama administration considers whether to require more ethanol in gasoline. As a result, there’s a feverish lobbying campaign by both oil and ethanol interests that has spread from Congress to the White House and the Supreme Court.

Fish out of water

Drought, river fragmentation diminishing endangered species

MANHATTAN — A Kansas State University researcher is discovering that the North American drought has caused dramatic changes in native fish communities. “A couple of key species that we have been studying have virtually disappeared where they historically were abundant,” said Keith Gido, professor of biology who researches fish ecology and conservation of aquatic systems. Gido and his team study state and federal endangered and threatened fish species in river ecosystems, including the Arkansas, Kansas, Gila, San Juan, Red and Platte rivers. He travels to these different rivers to study imperiled species such as the Colorado pikeminnow, the loach minnow, the spikedace in New Mexico and the plains minnow and silver chub in Kansas. Before the drought, Gido’s team observed more than 300 silver chub in the Ninnescah River in southern Kansas in summer 2011. In 2012, after the second consecutive year of severe drought, his team saw three silver chub during their sampling. They found zero silver chub in spring 2013. “We are in a conservation crisis,” Gido said. “Our fish communities have changed dramatically and we are losing a lot of native species.” Gido said two activities — river fragmentation and groundwater withdrawals -largely affect aquatic systems and native fish species in the Great Plains. When combined with the drought, these two activities result in dramatically reduced fish communities and lower species diversity. River fragmentation occurs when barriers, such as dams, break up the long sections of connected river and create shorter segments. Gido and his research team — including Joshuah Perkin, a postdoctoral researcher and 2012 Kansas State University doctoral graduate in biology, and Thomas Turner, a population geneticist at the University of New Mexico — have spent years studying

how river fragmentation affects fish communities in Great Plains rivers. They are currently studying the genetic diversity of populations in different rivers and different fragment sizes. In previous research, Perkin and Gido found that river fragments less than 100 kilometers make it difficult — if not impossible — for certain fish species to survive. The research appeared in the journal Fisheries. “Some fish species will release their eggs into the river and these eggs have to drift downstream for a certain distance to develop,” Gido said. “They basically cannot persist in fragments less than 100 kilometers.” Additionally, reservoirs and ponds behind dams often are stocked with nonnative fish, such as largemouth bass, that can move into the stream fragments and prey on native fish. This increases the effects of shrunken rivers. “As the water levels decline, if you have a nonnative predator in the system, then the predators’ effects are much stronger and have a more drastic effect on fish,” Gido said. “We have seen a gradual decline in native diversity over time. The drought exacerbates any of the effects because with fragmentation, if the stream is dry and the water is lower, the fish are unable to move around a barrier.” Gido said countermeasures, such as removing nonnative fish predators, may prevent more native fish from disappearing. Nonnative predator removals are currently under way in the San Juan and Gila rivers, Gido said. “It might not be something that you can do all the time, but during drought conditions it might be possible to remove predators to give native fish a chance and maintain diversity,” Gido said. Maintaining diversity is important to maintain healthy river ecosystem functions, Gido said. As part of the ecosystem, fish can influence the cycling of stream and river nutrients. Streams filter nutrients that flow to rivers or other large bodies. When this balance is off, too many nutrients can result in negative effects, such as harmful algae blooms.

This year’s full-scale exercise will feature an insider threat active-shooter scenario. “We have to be prepared for the full spectrum of threats that (could face) the installation,” Crusinberry said. “We just need to be sure that we’re prepared to respond to just about anything out there.

National briefs Change in weather needed at fire DEL NORTE, Colo. — Crews defending small homes, a ski area and a handful of roads against an erratic wildfire in Colorado’s southwest mountains hoped Monday for a break — any break — in the weather that will allow them to launch a more strategic assault on the backcountry blaze. The West Fork Fire likely will burn for months, said incident commander Pete Blume. And crews are not expecting to make any real gains against the 117-square-mile burn until the summer monsoon season brings cooler temperatures and rains, hopefully in early July. “This is a significant fire with significant problems, and we are not going to see any significant containment until we have significant changes in the weather,” said Blume, who is with the Rocky Mountain Type I Incident Command. The fire is feeding on beetlekilled trees and is fanned by hot, windy weather. Those conditions were expected to continue across much of Colorado, Utah, Arizona and New Mexico, where a 119square-mile wildfire in the mountains of Gila National Forest is expected to grow this week because of the weather. Some 900 firefighters with a variety of aircraft were in southwestern Colorado, and more were arriving. But so far they have been in an almost completely defensive mode, waiting for the 30-to 40-mile-an-hour afternoon winds that have grounded aircraft and driven flames to subside. The fire’s price tag has topped $22 million, and the effort has just begun. More than 1,000 residents and visitors left homes, cabins and RV parks in South Fork and surrounding areas Friday. As of Monday, no structures were known to have been lost. “Every day that it doesn’t run at South Fork is a good day,” Blume said. “Things are looking better, but are no means secure.” The blaze started June 5 with a lighting strike in a rugged, remote area of the San Juan Mountains, west of the Continental Divide. A second lightning strike sparked a fire east of the divide. The two then joined, making a fast run Thursday and Friday at popular tourist areas, including South Fork and the Wolf Creek Ski Area.

Opponents are looking for a goal-line fumble by the Obama administration as the long-awaited expansion of coverage for the uninsured finally happens. But if Sebelius is nervous, she doesn’t let on. “It’s a huge undertaking across the country, and I’m confident we’re going to get it done,” she said. Not only sports leagues, but community organizations, religious denominations and public health groups will be involved with outreach. Starting Oct. 1, consumers will be able to access new online marketplaces through and shop for private insurance plans in their communities. The federal government site will be the main portal to the new law, since about half the states are letting Washington run the coverage expansion.

Texas on verge of passing abortion law AUSTIN, Texas — The Republican-dominated Texas Legislature pushed Monday to enact wideranging restrictions that would effectively shut down all abortion clinics in the nation’s second mostpopulous state, and Democrats planned an old-fashioned marathon filibuster to stop the final vote. After the House easily approved it Monday morning, the wide-ranging package of anti-abortion measures was headed to the Senate. But with the special session scheduled to end at 11:59 p.m. Tuesday, the clock presented a far bigger obstacle than the votes to win approval there. Although Texas is just the latest of several conservative states to try to enact tough limits on abortions, the scope of its effort is notable both because of the combination of bills being considered and the size of the state. The proposal would ban abortions after the 20th week of pregnancy, require doctors to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals, limit abortions to surgical centers and stipulate doctors must monitor even non-surgical abortions.

When combined in a state 773 miles wide and 790 miles long and with 26 million people, the measures become the most stringent set of laws to impact the largest number of people in the nation. “If this passes, abortion would be virtually banned in the state of Texas, and many women could be forced to resort to dangerous and unsafe measures,” said Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood Action Fund and daughter of the late former Texas governor Ann Richards. Supporters, though, insist it will only raise the standard of health care for women seeking an abortion. Gov. Rick Perry added abortion to the special session’s agenda and has promised to sign the bill if it reaches his desk. The only way Democrats could block a vote when it goes to the Senate is if one senator filibusters it by running out the clock on the special session. Under the rules, the senator would have to speak non-stop, remain standing, restrain from bathroom breaks or even lean on anything.

House: Disability judges are too lax WASHINGTON — Social Security is approving disability benefits at strikingly high rates for people whose claims were rejected by field offices or state agencies, according to House investigators. Compounding the situation, the agency often fails to do required follow-up reviews months or years later to make sure people are still disabled. Claims for benefits have increased by 25 percent since 2007, pushing the fund that supports the disability program to the brink of insolvency, which could mean reduced benefits. Social Security officials say the primary driver of the increase is demographic, mainly a surge in baby boomers who are more prone to disability as they age but are not quite old enough to qualify for retirement benefits. The disability program has been

swamped by benefit claims since the recession hit a few years ago. Last year, 3.2 million people applied for Social Security Disability or Supplemental Security Income. In addition, however, management problems “lead to misspending” and add to the financial ills of the program, investigators from the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee say. “Federal disability claims are often paid to individuals who are not legally entitled to receive them,” three senior Republicans on the House committee declared in a March 11 letter to the agency. Among the signers was the committee’s chairman, Rep. Darrell Issa of California. Social Security acknowledges a backlog of 1.3 million overdue follow-up reviews to make sure people still qualify for benefits. But agency officials blame budget cuts for the backlog, saying Congress

‘Obamacare’ countdown gets under way WASHINGTON — Fewer than 100 days before uninsured Americans can sign up for coverage, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said Monday the administration is gearing up with new call centers, a revamped website — and a confab with the National Football League. No deals yet, Sebelius told reporters. But she said the idea of partnering to publicize the benefits of health insurance has gotten an enthusiastic reception from the NFL and other pro sports leagues. Health promotion is a goal for the leagues and “good for the country,” Sebelius said. Football season would be in full swing Oct. 1, when consumers can start shopping for coverage under President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul. Benefits take effect Jan. 1, around the time of the playoffs.

In a statement, the company said it “condemns the use of offensive and discriminatory language and behavior of any kind. Therefore, we are terminating our partnership with Paula Deen.” QVC also said it was reviewing its deal with Paula Deen Enterprises to sell the star’s cookbooks and cookware. “QVC shares the concerns being raised around the unfortunate Paula Deen situation,” QVC said in a statement. “We are closely monitoring these events and the ongoing litigation. We are reviewing our business relationship with Ms. Deen, and in the meantime, we have no immediate plans to have her appear on QVC.”

has denied the funds needed to clear it. Social Security spokesman Mark Hinkle said the agency follows the strict legal definition of disability when awarding benefits. In order to qualify, a person is supposed to have a disability that prevents him from working and is expected to last at least a year or result in death.

A tax system that targets workers B y B ob L ord


S am P izzigati

Los Angeles Times


magine a society with two tax systems. One taxes the wealth people have accumulated. The other taxes the labor people perform. This society seems to be getting along well enough, raising enough tax revenue to finance the public goods and services that voters have told lawmakers they want to see supported. Now imagine that lawmakers have decided to cut the tax rates on wealth and raise them on labor. At the same time, the amount of wealth subject to the lower tax rates is rising as income from labor is shrinking. That society, we would agree, is asking for trouble. In real life, would any society choose to take such an unsustainable course? One already has — the United States since 1980. In America today, virtually all the taxes that local, state and federal governments levy can be classified as either wealth-based or labor-based. The wealth-based taxes include the state and local property taxes we pay on an annual basis and the one-time taxes on large inheritances and estates. Wealth-based taxes also include taxes on the income people get from holding wealth — dividends and interest, for instance — and the capital gains income from buying and selling assets. Throw in the corporate income tax here, too. Labor-based taxes obviously cover the levies paid on the income we earn from the work we do. These include personal income taxes and the payroll taxes that fund Social Security and Medicare. These labor-based taxes also include the more difficult to categorize sales and sin taxes. The lion’s share of the revenue raised from these taxes, we would argue, comes from people spending their labor-based income on basic living expenses or, in the case of sin taxes, on cigarettes and alcohol. What has happened to the rates in these two tax systems? Over the last three decades, the rates for wealthbased taxes have been plummeting. In 2011, the effective corporate income tax rate dropped to a 40-year low of 12.1 percent. The top federal estate tax rate has sunk from 70 percent to 40 percent since 1981. Estate-tax avoidance strategies have brought the actual rate paid on large estates down to less than half that. Many states have abandoned the state inheritance tax altogether. The tax rate on capital gains did recently increase at the federal level, but the long-term trend has been downward, and the rate of tax on dividends has fallen dramatically, from 70 percent in 1980 to 20 percent today. Finally, beginning with the passage of California’s Proposition 13 in 1978, average property tax rates nationwide have declined sharply. Meanwhile, the rates for labor-based taxes, taken together, have increased. Average Americans do pay federal income taxes at a slightly lower rate than 30 years ago. But the effective payroll tax rate has increased sharply, as the ceiling on wages subject to Social Security taxes has risen and the ceiling on wages subject to Medicare taxes has been removed entirely. On top of that, sales taxes have also increased steadily, as have sin taxes. The two tax systems, however, don’t operate on a totally separate basis. The money that makes up the base in one system can migrate to the other. Over the last three decades or so, the available tax base from our labor-based tax system has been migrating to the wealth-based tax system. Here’s how. Until around 1980, wages kept pace with gains in productivity. Since then, productivity has continued to increase while wages have stagnated. The result? The allocation of income between labor and wealth has shifted, with more dollars going toward higher corporate profits, dividends and capital gains than toward wages. Tax rates are shrinking for booming profits, while rising for shrinking wages. But that’s not the worst of it. Tax rates in the wealth-based tax system aren’t just decreasing. An increasingly higher share of the dollars in that system escape taxation entirely. This growing exempt pool of wealth includes pension plans, IRAs, 401(k) plans, life insurance and annuity policies, municipal bond portfolios and funds held offshore. Most of this wealth sits in the portfolios of the richest families. Over recent decades, this tax-exempt chunk of American wealth has grown faster than our aggregate wealth _ about $20 trillion, not including what may be as much as $10 trillion in wealth parked in offshore tax havens. To sum up: The overall rate for wealth-based taxes has been decreasing while the overall rate for labor-based taxes has been increasing. At the same time, the potential base for labor-based taxes is migrating to the wealth-based tax side. And an ever-increasing portion of that potential base for wealth-based taxes faces no tax at all. This is unsustainable.


Will Kansas budget roll?

ansas lawmakers, at the request of Gov. Sam Brownback, this year passed the first two-year budget in recent history. That means that the state has a spending plan — like it or not, talk among yourselves — for the fiscal year that starts this July 1, and for the fiscal year that starts July 1, 2014. Now, does that seem to be a big deal? We’ll see. The key to a two-year budget, of course, is that in its second year, we figure that the basics of operating state government and providing the services to Kansans that they want are pretty much sketched out. There will be changes, of course, something always comes up, maybe a bridge washes out (cause for celebration in western Kansas) or we learn that the state has put more money into some program that it really needs. There will be changes, count on it. But the two-year budget also presents an interesting political morality test for the administration. There are two-year budgets and there are twoyear budgets. So, one way to do it is to budget for this year and next year and then, just after the next gubernatorial election, budget for the first two years of a new

martin hawver Commentary term ... whoever is governor. That’s a pretty standard two-year budget. When a new governor comes into office, he/ she gets to plan out — quickly because the governor will still be moving into Cedar Crest while assembling a government — just what the new administration’s policy issues are going to be. Fresh start ... except for those remaining six months of the fiscal year before July 1. And those six months probably give a new governor fairly important “breathing room” while becoming acclimated to running things. But, say that two-year budget is a “rolling budget.” That means every year, the Legislature and governor add another year, which means that the currently planned spending doesn’t just end at the end of Brownback’s first term as governor, but continues into the first year of his second term — or

Letters to the editor: What is going on? To the Editor:

the first year of a new governor if Brownback isn’t re-elected. That leaves an extra year of the footprint of the current governor that slops into what might be the first year of a new governor’s term. If Brownback is reelected it means that five years from now at the end of his second term when he can’t seek reelection, whoever becomes governor is pretty well locked into the spending plan for the first year of a new term. Anyone wondering whether a governor, in his last term, might want to make sure that the incoming governor doesn’t mess up some grand plan of the outgoing governor? Now, maybe Kansas has its first twoyear budget. But it will be worthwhile next January, at the State of the State address, to find out whether the budget rolls ... or not.

Appraisals an issue To the Editor:


would like to know what has happened to our world today. We have our house up for sale, since we have moved into another one not far away. When we went to take care of the lawn today, we noticed that a piece of driftwood that we had in our front yard is gone. This piece of wood has many memories and has been in the family for a long time and will be greatly missed. What would possess someone to take an old piece of wood out of someone’s yard without permission? I have always been very proud of the Midwest and how people here respect and protect their friends and neighbors, but this makes me wonder if we are becoming just like the east coast and west coast where people think they are entitled to anything they want and crime is rampant. We do not think this is in any way similar to the break in at Westwood School that happened not too long ago. That was a case of lack of parental guidance. The parents of these young teenagers apparently have not taught their children right from wrong and should be held responsible for the actions of their children. It seems that some parents today do not teach their children to respect, honor, and obey the laws of society. This does not mean that we think teenagers were involved in the theft of our yard decoration. It seems more likely that it would have been an adult involved in this theft of personal property. Anyway, no matter who was responsible, it is a shame that our great nation has become so callous and untrustworthy that a simple piece of yard decoration would tempt someone to commit a crime.

am in total agreement with the article about Scott Johnson in the paper concerning property appraisals. I have been down there several times myself. I was told “we do what the state mandates and we don’t have to physically look at a property, but we do.” We can do appraisals on what the surrounding properties are selling for. Get out and look at some of these neighborhoods. Do you think several completely run down houses in total disrepair next to or near yours, will allow you to get what they say yours is worth? Good luck. Mr. Johnson has won three times through various courts, such as the Kansas Court of Tax Appeals. County Commissioners Ben Bennett and Florence Whitebread requested to have an Assistant County Attorney, review it again. It’s now going to state officials for judicial review. Is this really necessary? Is this costing taxpayers? The fact is property in this town is usually over appraised anyway. When a property is appraised upwards of $500,000 to $600,000 dollars for the house itself on two or three acres, chances are very slim you are going to get that unless you lower your price. Then if you buy that property for a lower price, you should be paying taxes on that amount, because that’s the fair market value. I have been down there asking that our county road be resurfaced with new asphalt. I have paid taxes for 27 years and that road has never had new asphalt. It has been chip sealed several times. However it is crumbling on the sides, they do a patch here and there. Taxpayers, remember this at the next election. It is time for three new county commissioners.

Man robbed in Junction City motel B y D aily U nion S taf f Junction City police are investigating an alleged robbery Friday night that left a man knocked out in a motel room. The reported incident took place at about 11 p.m.

Friday in room 31 of the Homestead Motel, located at 1736 N. Washington St., according to Lt. Jeff Childs of the JCPD Investigations Unit. The male victim reported the incident “several hours” after it had occurred, Childs said. A call log from the

U.S. District Judge Julie Robinson set the trial date during a brief hearing Monday after federal prosecutors and attorneys for 53-year-old Michael Schuster agreed on the timing. A federal grand jury indicted Schuster last month on four counts alleging he operated a so-called “pill mill” at his Manhattan clinic. He continues to be held without bond. Schuster has pleaded not guilty. Prosecutors allege that from April 2007 until at least August 2012, Schuster had staff members who weren’t licensed to write prescriptions dispense

Burke was a student at St. John’s Military School in Salina. The judge on Monday revoked his bond so that Burke could begin serving the proposed jail time, although his sentencing won’t take place until early August. Burke’s lawyer says the agreement avoided trial on more serious charges of sexual battery. Prosecutor Christina Trocheck says the younger student agreed to the deal.

Kansas school counselor says not guilty in sex case SALINA — A former middle school counselor in Salina has pleaded not guilty to having sex with a boy younger than 14. Thirty-two-year-old Brooke Dinkel, a former counselor for Smoky Valley Middle School, was bound over for trial Monday. She faces 10 counts of rape and 10 counts of aggravated criminal sodomy. Her trial was scheduled for Oct. 14. The Salina Journal reports the boy testified in a preliminary hearing last Wednesday that he and Dinkel had sexual contact more than 10 times after he started stripping wallpaper at her house.

Kansas debate shows differing priorities B y J ohn H anna

The Associated Press TOPEKA — Higher education officials in Kansas argue that public universities and colleges are crucial to economic growth but still will see their state funding shrink because many members of the Republican-dominated Legislature believe income tax cuts will be a bigger engine of prosperity. State Board of Regents members worry that funding reductions will hinder their efforts to improve academic programs and additional doctors, nurses, engineers and professionals. Last week, the board raised tuition at state universities, and members declared that the increases were higher than they wanted because of legislators’ actions. But Kansas’ higher education system operates in the broader political context created by Republican Gov. Sam Brownback’s desire to eventually eliminate personal income taxes. He and his allies argue that phasing out such taxes will free up capital, spur investment, create jobs and permanently boost the state’s economy. Brownback balanced his push for additional cuts in income tax rates this year with proposals to

keep state funding for higher education flat for the next two years. But Republican majorities in both chambers demonstrated that they consider lower income taxes more important than public universities and colleges to promoting economic growth. “They’re not the main factor in economic growth in this state,” said Senate Majority Leader Terry Bruce, a conservative Hutchinson Republican. “There’s the priority of the Kansas Legislature over the last couple of years, to focus on tax policy to create a better business environment to create growth, as opposed to investing in, or spending money on, the regents system.” The cuts approved by legislators total about $44 million over the next two fiscal years, beginning in July. For each of those years, state funding will be about 3 percent less than it is under the current budget — about $754 million instead of the current $776 million, according to the regents. The bulk of the reductions will come from universities’ budgets. Brownback’s proposals for flat funding meshed with the tax policies he’s advocated over the past two years, which stand to save Kansans a total of $4.1 billion through June 2018. The regents and other top higher education officials have

“I don’t think that the two are necessarily in conflict with one another. I think you can have economic growth and tax cuts, but I don’t think you can have economic growth and cut the budgets of higher education. Fred Logan been careful not to publicly criticize efforts to position Kansas to phase out personal income taxes. They supported Brownback’s proposals for flat state funding, rather than advocating for increases. “I don’t think that the two are necessarily in conflict with one another,” said incoming regents Chairman Fred Logan, of Leawood, a former Kansas Republican Party chairman. “I think you can have economic growth and tax cuts, but I don’t think you can have economic growth and cut the budgets of higher education.” The regents argue that higher education improves a worker’s potential earnings but also that university research fuels economic innovation and growth. Regent Kenny Wilk, of Lansing, a former Republican in the Kansas House who served as chairman of both its Taxation and Appropriations committees,

acknowledged that the board may need to be more aggressive about presenting its case. The board’s goal is for 60 percent of the state’s population to have a university or community college degree or technical college certification by 2020, compared to the current figure of about 50 percent. “The whole strategy has been based upon a stable funding stream,” he said. Fort Hays State University President Ed Hammond said tax cuts can stimulate the economy, but businesses need trained workers to expand or come to Kansas, making a strong higher education system crucial. “It’s like the farmer who goes out and plants wheat and fertilizes it and never harvests it,” he said. “The circle has to be completed if it’s going to be successful.” Wilk said the regents “own” some responsibility for this

year’s funding reductions because, “We need to get ahead of the message.” But each legislative chamber also has a strong contingent of conservative Republicans who argue that shrinking state government and cutting taxes aggressively will create prosperity. Many of them view private business investment as more potent than government spending for stimulating the economy. Rep. Scott Schwab, a conservative Olathe Republican serving on the House Taxation Committee, said legislators have heard for years that strong education and transportation systems are vital to economic growth, only to see Kansas lag behind other states economically after making major investments. “What we need is the businesses that can say, we can make more money in Kansas, and then those students stay here,” Schwab said. “These tax cuts, they make government tight, but it’s so that we can have economic growth going in the future.” The regents are operating in an environment created by Brownback’s vision of a state without personal income taxes. Many Republican legislators not only embrace that goal but see it as the top priority in promoting economic growth.

Snowden misses flight, whereabouts unclear B y M ax S eddon

The Associated Press HAVANA — Confusion over the whereabouts of National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden grew on Monday after a jetliner flew from Moscow to Cuba with an empty seat booked in his name. The founder of the WikiLeaks secret-spilling organization, Julian Assange, insisted he couldn’t go into details about where Snowden was, but said he was safe. Snowden has applied for asylum in Ecuador, Iceland and possibly other countries, Assange said. An Aeroflot representative who wouldn’t give her name told The Associated Press that Snowden wasn’t on flight SU150 to Havana, which was filled with journalists trying to track him down. Two AP journalists on the flight confirmed after it arrived Monday evening in Havana that Snowden wasn’t on the plane.

long-standing battle over the Renewable Fuel Standard, approved by Congress in 2005 and amended in 2007. The law requires refiners to blend increasing amounts of ethanol into gasoline each year as a way to decrease reliance on fossil fuels and lower greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to global warming. The Environmental Protection Agency has proposed a 16.5 billion-gallon production requirement for ethanol and other gasoline alternatives this year, up from 15.2 billion gallons last year. By 2022, the law calls for more than double that amount. Biofuel advocates and supporters in Congress say the law has helped create more than 400,000 jobs, revitalized rural economies and helped lower foreign oil imports by more than 30 percent while reducing emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases. But the oil industry, refiners and some environmental groups say the standard imposes an unnecessary economic burden on consumers. Using automotive fuel that comes from corn also has significant consequences for agricul-

ture, putting upward pressure on food prices, critics say. “The ever increasing ethanol mandate has become unsustainable, causing a looming crisis for gasoline consumers,” said the API’s Greco. “We’re at the point where refiners are being pressured to put unsafe levels of ethanol in gasoline, which could damage vehicles, harm consumers and wreak havoc on our economy.” Along with the E15 court case, the API and refiners have swarmed Capitol Hill and the White House to try to have the current mandate waived or repealed. Charles Drevna, president of the American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers, which represents refineries, accused the EPA of putting politics ahead of science. An EPA official told Congress earlier this month that the agency does not require use of E15, but believes it is safe for cars built since 2001. “The government is not saying ‘go ahead’ “ and put E15 in all cars, said Christopher Grundler, of the EPA’s director of the office of transportation and air quality. “The government is saying this is legal fuel to

Another year after that, it will likely be ready to be seen and head to the festival circuit. Alexander said Europe will be another place the movie can go because westerns are popular there. Other possibilities include videos on demand, DVD sales and Netflix. Alexander and Guest hope this film can “bounce” them into the next one. The pair have one more dream for the film. “Hopefully, they will start watching and won’t know why, but they won’t be able to look away,” Alexander said. “It will grip them and be unsatisfyingly satisfying or mysteriously interesting.”

sell if the market demands it and there are people who wish to sell it.” Ethanol supporters say E15 is cheaper than conventional gasoline and offers similar mileage to E10, the version that is sold in most U.S. stations. Scott Zaremba, who owns a chain of gas stations in Kansas, scoffs at claims that E15 would damage older cars. “In the real world I’ve had zero problems” with engine breakdowns, said Zaremba, whose station in Lawrence, Kan., was the first in the nation to offer E15 last year. But Zaremba said he had to stop selling the fuel this spring after his gasoline supplier, Phillips 66, told him he could no longer sell the E15 fuel from his regular black fuel hoses. The company said the aim was to distinguish E15 from other gasoline with less ethanol, but Zaremba said the real goal was to discourage use of E15. New pumps cost more than $100,000. The American Automobile Association, for now, sides with the oil industry. The motoring club says the government should halt sales of E15 until additional testing allows ethanol pro-

incident allegedly occurred at Faith Tabernacle or the Apostolic Academy in Junction City. According to the criminal complaints, the youngest child was born in 1998. The oldest was born in 1994. Earlier this month, Brown said charges against Young could be filed in four additional cases. “If we proceed to preliminary hearings, I will file them,” she said. 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.

ducers and automakers to agree on which vehicles can safely use E15 while ensuring that consumers are adequately informed of risks. A spokeswoman for the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers, which represents 12 major car makers, said E15 gas is more corrosive and the EPA approved it before it could be fully tested. Older cars were “never designed to use E15,” spokeswoman Gloria Bergquist said. Use of the fuel over time could create significant engine problems, she said. The API cites engine

problems discovered during a study it commissioned last year, but the Energy Department called the research flawed and said it included engines with known durability issues. For now, E15 remains a regional anomaly. About 20 stations currently offer the fuel in Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota and Wisconsin. Dinneen and other ethanol advocates said the Supreme Court ruling may serve as a breakthrough for E15, after years of delay. “With this decision, E15 can finally become a meaningful option for more Americans,” Dinneen said.

sales of E15. The justices left in place a federal appeals court ruling that dismissed challenges by the oil industry group and trade associations representing food producers, restaurants and others. Tom Buis, CEO of Growth Energy, an ethanol industry group, hailed the decision as victory for U.S. consumers, who will now have greater choice at the pump. “Now that the final word has been issued, I hope that oil companies will begin to work with biofuel producers to help bring new blends into the marketplace that allow for consumer choice and savings,” Buis said. The API called the decision a loss for consumers, safety and the environment. “EPA approved E15 before vehicle testing was complete, and we now know the fuel may cause significant mechanical problems in millions of cars on the road today,” said Harry Ng, API vice president and general counsel. The ethanol industry called that a scare tactic and said there have been no documented cases of engine breakdowns caused by the high-ethanol blend since limited sales of E15 began last year. “This is another example of oil companies unnecessarily scaring people, and it’s just flat-out wrong,” said Bob Dinneen, president of the Renewable Fuels Association, an ethanol industry group. The dispute over E15 is the latest flashpoint in a

Many of the more than 700 scenes will be filmed on a private ranch outside of Junction City. Other scenes will take place at Rock Springs 4-H Camp. Guest, who is the producer of the film, said there is a “beautiful, 19th century country church” at Rock Springs that will be perfect. She called the area “amazing and really perfect.” It hasn’t just been the scenery that has been perfect. “We have received great support from the communities, especially here,” Alexander said. “There are people who are wanting to volunteer and get involved.

Ecuadorean Foreign Minister Ricardo Patino said his government had received an asylum request, adding Monday that the decision “has to do with freedom of expression and with the security of citizens around the world.” Ecuador has rejected the United States’ previous efforts at cooperation, and has been helping Assange avoid prosecution by allowing him to stay at its embassy in London. But Assange’s comments in a telephone conference with reporters that Snowden had applied in multiple places opened other possibilities of where he might try to go. WikiLeaks has said that it is providing legal help to Snowden at his request and that he was being escorted by diplomats and legal advisers from the group.

they would have been utterly unprofessional,” Igor Korotchenko, a former colonel in Russia’s top military command turned security analyst, said on state Rossiya 24 television. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said Monday it would be “deeply troubling” if Russia or Hong Kong had notice of Snowden’s plans and that would affect their relations with the United States. The controversy over Snowden could further hurt U.S.-Russian relations, already strained over arguments about Syria and a ban on U.S. adoptions of Russian children. The Kremlin has previously said Russia would be ready to consider Snowden’s request for asylum. Aeroflot said earlier that Snowden had registered for the flight using his American passport, which the United States

dodge efforts to extradite him. After spending a night in Moscow’s Sheremetyevo Airport, he had been expected to fly to Cuba and Venezuela en route to possible asylum in Ecuador. Interfax quoted an unidentified “well-informed source” in Moscow saying that Russia received a U.S. request to extradite Snowden and responded by saying it would consider that. But the same source said Russia could not detain and extradite Snowden since he hadn’t technically crossed the Russian border. Justice Department officials in Washington did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment. Experts said it was likely that the Russians were questioning Snowden, interested in what he knew about U.S. electronic espionage against Moscow. “If Russian special services hadn’t shown interest in Snowden,

“We scouted it out and were totally inspired,” Alexander said. “Not only did we figure out it was going to be possible to film it here, but we realized it would just be the spot. It has to be made here.” More specifically, Geary County is the place. “The texture of the land and wide open spaces really affect the whole psychology of how you feel,” Alexander said. “Anything could be out there. The gentle rolling hills and huge wide open spaces. It really communicates a mood.”

Security around the aircraft was heavy prior to boarding and guards tried to prevent the scrum of photographers and cameramen from taking pictures of the plane, heightening speculation that Snowden might have been secretly escorted on board. In Havana, Cuban officers also clamped down, forcing journalists to move outside the airport building. The Interfax news agency, which has extensive contacts with Russian security agencies, cited a source as saying Snowden could have flown out in a different plane unseen by journalists. Others speculated Russian security agencies might want to keep Snowden in Russia for a more thorough debriefing. Snowden had not been seen since he arrived in Moscow on Sunday from Hong Kong, where he was in hiding for several weeks to evade U.S. justice and left to

Durant signs with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation agency

Kevin Durant has become the first NBA star to sign with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation agency. Durant posted a photo on social media Monday of himself and the rap mogul with the paperwork. Jay-Z became certified as a representative by the NBA players’ association last week. A quote attributed to Durant above the picture says he’s “grateful for this opportunity with Roc Nation Sports. It’s go time.” The Oklahoma City star and Olympic gold medalist — who had a field goal percentage over 50, a 3-point percentage over 40 and a free-throw percentage over 90 — leaves agent Rob Pelinka to sign with Roc Nation. “He has a 90.5 free throw shooting rate, the youngest player in NBA history to join the 50-40-90 club, a giving individual and a legend in the making. What more can I say?” reads the quote attributed to Jay-Z, whose real name is Shawn Carter.


Nadal loses to 135thranked player at Wimbledon

In one of Wimbledon’s greatest upsets, an ailing Rafael Nadal was knocked out in straight sets Monday by a player ranked 135th — the Spaniard’s first loss in the opening round of a Grand Slam event. Steve Darcis of Belgium stunned the two-time champion 7-6 (4), 7-6 (8), 6-4. He ended Nadal’s 22-match winning streak and eliminated one of the Big Four of men’s tennis on the very first day of the grass-court Grand Slam. Nadal was sidelined for seven months with a left knee injury after losing in the second round of Wimbledon last year. He seemed to be struggling physically. He was unable to turn on the speed or use his legs to spring into his groundstrokes, limping and failing to run for some shots.


FIFA ’not ashamed’ of Brazil World Cup, no Plan B

FIFA has defended keeping the 2014 World Cup in Brazil despite civil unrest during the test event, and says no “official offers” have been received from countries to step in to host the tournament. More than a million Brazilians have taken to the streets during the Confederations Cup to protest about the lack of investment in public services compared with the billions of dollars being spent on the World Cup project. FIFA General Secretary Jerome Valcke says he is “not ashamed about what we are doing” in Brazil. Tear gas and rubber bullets have been fired at some demonstrators, leading to increased security around venues. Valcke insists “there is no Plan B and ... I have never received any official offer from any other countries” to stage the 2014 tournament.

IndyCar said Monday it has added a rule that allows changes in cases of engine failure during on-track team, rookie, manufacturer and straight-line tests. The rule will not apply to engine failures during open tests at Pocono, Mid-Ohio or Sonoma.

Kansas City Royals hitting coach George Brett, left, and manager Ned Yost watch form the dugout in the ninth inning of a 4-3 loss to the Cleveland Indians in a baseball game Tuesday, June 18 in Cleveland.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — George Brett likes to say that hitting was always easier for him to do than say. After all, he was one of the best of his generation — of any generation, really. His pursuit of the near-mythical .400 mark during his MVP season of 1980 came up just 10 points short, and to this day remains one of the most spirited cracks at it since Ted Williams reached it in 1941. But for Brett, stepping into the batter’s box, peering back at a pitcher and then putting the right swing on the ball came naturally. He worked his tail off, of course, but when someone would ask him to explain his sweet swing, he would usually just shrug.

It was easier to do than say. Well, now he’s getting paid to say rather than do. He’s three weeks into a monthlong experiment as the Kansas City Royals’ hitting coach, and just like Williams and scores of other greats who have tried to become coaches, Brett is finding results maddeningly slow to show. “I’ve seen results in batting practice. I want to see them in games,” Brett said in an interview with The Associated Press. “I’ve seen some guys alter their swings a bit, their stances a little bit, and they’ve had a little success, which is good. Some guys are working on it and it looks good in BP but it hasn’t carried over to a game yet. “When it carries over to a game,” he added, “we’ll be OK.” The question that will soon Please see Brett, 8B

Low-wattage effort level

Hawks lack energy, struggle in McPherson tournament E than P adway MCPHERSON — Ultimately, the Junction City Post 45 Hawks participation in the McPherson American Legion baseball tournament will go down as a missed opportunity. Instead of taking advantage of playing a minimum of four games in a weekend, the Hawks just went through the motions. “We just weren’t ready to play, plain and simple,” Junction City coach Heath Gerstner said. The Hawks opened the tournament Friday night against Buhler. Junction managed a meager two hits the entire game while Buhler opened up the game with an eight-run effort in the bottom of the first. The only Hawk run to cross the plate came in the second when Josh Haynes grounded out to first to score Nate Funk. “We showed up against a team that we’re better than and we just got outplayed,” Gerstner said. “They had more energy, more excitement. We tried to but just weren’t ready to play and we gave up a big inning and before you know it you’re out of the game. That happened real fast.” Junction City returned to the field Saturday with renwed vigor and held a late 6-5 lead in the fifth inning against Newton. But Newton tied the game in the bottom half of the inning and then knocked a ball out of the park in the sixth to move in front of the Hawks. Post 45 still managed to move to the championship bracket Sunday after Wellington forfeited the Saturday afternoon game. “I wanted our team to play there to get some confidence going, but that was that,” Gerstner said. Despite being gifted a second chance Sunday, the Hawks regressed to their Friday level of energy. In a rematch with Newton, Junction City allowed seven runs in the first inning and never recovered.

US ties France 1-1 in U20s B y MICHAEL CASEY

Associated Press ISTANBUL — The United States improved its chances of reaching the knockout stage of the Under-20 World Cup, tying France 1-1 Monday on an 85th-minute goal by substitute Daniel Cuevas. “I feel like they were confused,” he said. “They couldn’t get the ball out and luckily it took a bounce my way and I got to push it in.” With France and Spain having won their openers, the U.S. needs a victory in its final match against Ghana to advance outright. But it could still advance as one of the four best third-place teams. “Our team is very united and we are always together and pushing forward,” Cuevas said. “If things don’t go our way, we keep trying and keep trying until they do. Luckily we got the tie.” Spain beat Ghana 1-0 in a lackluster match on Monday. In the other early game in Group B.

NORTH ATTLEBOROUGH, Mass. — Police again searched the area near the home of New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez, a week after his friend’s body was found about a mile away. Some police officers wore wetsuits Monday while searching woods near Hernandez’s home, not far from the industrial park where Odin Lloyd’s body was found. Lloyd, a 27-year-old semi-pro football player for the Boston Bandits, was found slain June 17. His relatives said he was dating the sister of Hernandez’s fiancee, that the two men were friends and that both men were out together on the last night of Lloyd’s life. An Attleboro District Court official said no new documents were available in connection with the case Monday morning. The Bristol County district attorney’s office also didn’t release any new information about the case, which their spokeswoman called “an active, ongoing investigation.” A court official said last week that three search warrants had been issued, but none of them had been returned, meaning they weren’t yet public. Hernandez hasn’t commented on the homicide investigation, but has been seen with his lawyer.

Crain Royals rally in eighth to beat White Sox 7-6 B y DAVE SKRETTA

Associated Press KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Just about the only good thing about the eighth inning that Jesse Crain endured on Sunday was that the ace White Sox reliever will finally get to shave. Everything else was something to forget. The right-hander came in to protect a two-run lead against the Kansas City Royals having gone a franchise-record 29 consecutive appearances without allowing a run, a streak that coincided with his decision to grow a gnarly good-luck beard. Two hits, two errors and a bases-loaded walk later, the Royals were on their way to an improbable 7-6 victory and Crain was on his way to the barbershop. “I’m just glad I get to shave now,” he said afterward. “It’s a tough way to lose a game. We had a chance to sweep the series, which we needed. We just have to look forward to the next game.”

Adam Dunn homered and drove in four runs for the White Sox, and Gordon Beckham’s two-run double in the seventh gave them a 6-4 lead. But things started to unravel when Crain came into the game and allowed consecutive singles to Mike Moustakas and David Lough. Elliot Johnson put down a sacrifice bunt that Crain (2-2) had trouble fielding for an error that loaded the bases. Crain recovered to strike out George Kottaras and Jarrod Dyson, but he then walked Alex Gordon to get Kansas City within a run. Alcides Escobar followed with a hard grounder toward shortstop that got past Alexei Ramirez, the ball ending up in left field and the error allowing the go-ahead runs to score. All three of the runs Crain allowed were unearned. Ramirez refused to talk to reporters afterward, but White Sox manager Robin Ventura provided a blunt assessment of the play: “He didn’t catch it. That’s it. That’s why it’s an error.”

Kottaras and Dyson had back-to-back homers for the Royals, who snapped a fourgame losing streak with the kind of scrappy, win-ugly performance that is becoming their hallmark. Luke Hochevar (1-1) struck out two in a scoreless innings of relief, while Greg Holland pitched a perfect ninth for his 16th save in 18 chances. “It’s big anytime you get a win and especially coming from behind,” Hochevar said. “That’s always a big pick-me-up for the club.” Royals starter James Shields and White Sox counterpart Dylan Axelrod both went through rough afternoons, though they surely got an exciting show once they left the game.

Shields threw six straight balls to start the game and things never got a whole lot better, his leadoff walk to Alejandro De Aza and a single later in the first inning turning into two quick runs when Dunn rapped a single off the glove of Eric Hosmer at first base. The Royals’ ace then plunked Alex Rios in the back in the third inning, and Dunn made Shields pay again for his erratic ways with his no-doubt, two-run shot to center field. It was the 20th homer for the hot-hitting Dunn, who trails only the Orioles’ Chris Davis and Blue Jays’ Edwin Encarnacion for the most in the American League. Shields wound up putting the leadoff batter on base in four of his five innings,

Gay leads a youthful US team into worlds B y PAT GRAHAM

Associated Press DES MOINES, Iowa — Tyson Gay rarely, if ever, talks trash and barely, if at all, speaks much higher than a whisper. He’s far from your ordinary sprinter in that regard, preferring to let his performances on the track do his boasting. Over the weekend, his races spoke loud and clear: The Tyson Gay of old is back. Not only back, but possibly better than ever. Gay easily won the 100 and 200 meters at U.S. championships, running seasonleading times that are sure to catch the attention of Usain Bolt in Jamaica. It also proved that Gay’s surgically repaired hip is indeed fully mended as he leads a youthful U.S. squad into the world championships in Moscow in August. “I say this and I mean this: A healthy Tyson Gay wins championships,” his coach, Jon Drummond, said. Over even Bolt? “Absolutely,” Drummond said. “Bolt respects Tyson probably more than anyone. He knows Tyson is his fiercest competitor.” Nationals weren’t just the Tyson Gay show. There were quite a few unfamiliar names making headlines, like teenager Mary Cain after her savvy second-place finish in the 1,500 meters earned her a spot on the world team. Or the performance of 100 hurdler Brianna Rollins, who finished in 12.26 seconds to break the American record set by Gail Devers in 2000. That wasn’t it from the youngsters, either: Former Oregon standout English Gardner won the 100 and Kimberlyn Duncan, fresh off winning another NCAA sprint title at LSU, beat Allyson Felix in

Tyson Gay, center, leads Isiah Young, left, and Wallace Spearmon, right, during the senior men’s 200-meter dash final at the U.S. Championships athletics meet, Sunday in Des Moines, Iowa. Gay won the race in 19.74 seconds. Young finished second and qualified for the world championships the Olympic champion’s signature event, the 200. Unknowns now, but after Moscow it could be a different story. “All these new faces are great,” former Olympic champion Maurice Greene said. “The United States now is about to start showing the rest of the world how good we really are.” Actually, it pretty much started at the London Games, when the U.S. captured 29 medals, the country’s biggest haul at a major meet since winning 30 at the 1992 Summer Games. However, one of the individuals responsible for the recent medal surge is departing USA Track and Field. Benita Fitzgerald Mosley will leave her post as chief of sport performance for a position with the U.S. Olympic Committee. She stepped into her role four years ago, when ousted CEO Doug Logan helped generate a report termed “Project 30,” which was the number of medals Logan thought the U.S. should aim for in 2012. “I had a target on my back,” Mosley said, laughing. “But we all pulled together around our high-performance plan to try to elevate the performance of the U.S. team. We were successful.” The Americans certainly have quite a few new faces making the trip to Russia. Quite a few familiar ones, too. Among the other big names earning spots include Olympic champion and world record holder Ashton Eaton (decathlon), ‘08 Beijing Games gold medalist LaShawn Merritt (400), Felix (200), Bernard Lagat (5,000), London Games silver medalist Galen Rupp (10,000; along with 5,000), ‘04

Olympic champion Justin Gatlin (100) and indoor record holder Jenn Suhr (pole vault). Oh, and Gay. He will put that hip to the supreme test against Bolt, who typically saves his best for major meets. It’s setting up to be quite a competition. “Tyson can be great if he’s healthy,” Greene said. In recent seasons, that hasn’t been the case. Gay has dealt with nagging injuries ever since winning the 100 and 200 at the worlds in 2007. These days, though, there are no groin tweaks, hamstring tightness or hip twinges holding him back. He’s running without pain, as evidenced by his fast times. He beat Justin Gatlin in the 100 by finishing in 9.75 seconds. Then, two days later — with his hip still feeling good — Gay roared around the curve and held off a hard-charging Isiah Young in a time of 19.74. “You’re now seeing the Tyson of 2007,” Drummond said. “You’re seeing a mature, focused, committed guy who’s been through a lot of issues and (injuries), one after the other. It can be heartbreaking, but he stayed the course and stayed focus. The end result is what we see right now.” To say the 17-year-old Cain was pleased to make the team wouldn’t even scratch the surface. She was so elated, she could hardly stand still after the race. Cain followed the lead of training partner Treniere Moser to earn a spot, with Moser just beating her at the line. “I really wanted to get a uniform,” Cain said. “I’m so excited.”

MALIBU, Calif. — Former Chicago Bulls star Scottie Pippen was questioned Monday about a fight that occurred over the weekend between him and an autograph seeker outside a Malibu restaurant, authorities said. Pippen came in voluntarily to a substation after he was named as a suspect in an investigation of an assault with intent to commit great bodily injury, Los Angeles County sheriff’s officials said. He was there for about an hour and was released pending further investigation. “He’s being cooperative,” S cottie sheriff’s spokesman Steve P ippen Whitmore said. The victim was taking pictures inside Nobu restaurant late Sunday while Pippen, 47, dined with his family, said sheriff’s Capt. Patrick Davoren. When Pippen went outside to the parking lot, the man continued to take pictures and sought the Hall-of-Famer’s autograph, Davoren said. An argument ensued that led to the altercation, investigators said. The man was taken to a hospital with a head injury and was treated and released. Investigators were interviewing several witnesses who apparently saw what transpired. “Right now it’s under investigation,” Whitmore said. “We have to interview everybody to find out what happened.” Nobu has been a Malibu mainstay for nearly 15 years and is frequented by celebrities. The restaurant recently moved to a beachfront location that offers views of the Pacific Ocean from nearly every seat. Inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in 2010, Pippen won six NBA titles with Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls and was on a list of the league’s 50 greatest players announced in 1996. He is a special adviser to the team’s president and chief operating officer. The Bulls declined to comment Monday.

The Daily Union. Tuesday, June 25, 2013

Sibling’s wishes don’t have to be financed Dear Annie: My older sister, “Johanna,” was diagnosed with inflammatory breast cancer two years ago. Since then, she seems to have one new “lifelong dream” after another that she expects my brother and me to finance. My brother has worked hard his entire life and saved his money. He tried helping Johanna with her first dream (a house) with a loan. Her husband initially told Johanna that my brother refused to help, and Johanna told him to “die a miserable death.” She lightened up when she found out the truth. When the bank didn’t approve the deal, she did repay most of the money. I’ve tried to help her, too, but I could not afford to keep giving her money. Johanna’s latest dream is a hobby farm. She asked my brother to give her $18,000 as an outright gift. He told her no. Johanna stopped speaking to both of us, even though I have no control over what my brother does. Here’s the real problem. Her husband recently asked both of us for money and, as always, made sure to mention that she might die any moment. They have both used her possible death to guilt us into giving her money. Annie, I love my sister, but it doesn’t seem right that they use this as a weapon against us. It also bothers me that Johanna stops speaking to us if we deny her. None of us is wealthy. If I had the cash, I’d give it to her. But I also understand my brother’s point of view. Another sibling took him for a lot of money many years ago, running up thousands of dollars in credit card debt. There is a good possibility that nothing will come of this hobby farm, and we’d all be out a lot of money, and for what? We aren’t young anymore. What do you advise? — Torn Sister Dear Torn: It’s obvious that you want to be a good sister to Johanna. When someone is having health problems, you should be supportive emotionally, offer to cook meals or help with errands. But there is no obligation to buy them a hobby farm or any other expensive slice of wish fulfillment. Johanna is using her illness to manipulate you, counting on your guilt to get what she wants. Too bad she cannot appreciate what you are already giving her: your love and caring. Dear Annie: My family is

planning a surprise party for my mom’s big birthday. One sibling lives far away, but he has frequent-flier miles and can fly free. Plus, he has friends in the area with whom to stay. The others all live nearby. However, it will cost me more than $2,000 to attend (airfare, hotel and car rental). I also am not eligible for vacation and will be docked pay for the days I miss. I want very much to attend, but my siblings have rented a venue for the party and are hiring caterers, arranging valet parking, etc. I am afraid I will not be able to afford it all. Any suggestions? — Not Rich Kid Sis Dear Not Rich: Please don’t wait until your siblings send you a bill. Any costs that are expected to be shared should be discussed in advance and agreed to by all parties. Call your siblings and explain your dilemma. Ask what they expect from you, and tell them what you can afford. Work it out now so there are no hard feelings down the road. Dear Annie: “Disgusted” said that a charitable organization had sent him various free items, including a check for $2.50. Anyone who receives an unsolicited check in the mail should read the endorsement area carefully. By signing and cashing the “free” check, you may be entering into an agreement to buy or invest in something in which you have no interest, and it will cost much more than you think. — Ed in Florida

Wizard of Id

Horoscope Ask any schoolteacher how a student’s home life relates to performance, and you’ll learn that domestic disharmony has rather obvious side effects. People do better at life when all is well at home. Lucky Jupiter’s entrance into Cancer (where the abundance planet will reside for the rest of the year) bodes well for healing and fortifying the domestic scene. ARIES (March 21-April 19). You want to help a friend but are not sure quite how to accomplish this. Start by asking the magic words, “Is there anything I can do to make you feel better?” You’ll be surprised by the answer. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You think it’s cute when children have an overblown idea of their current capabilities, but this quality is far less adorable in adults. Work with the straight shooters and those who are inclined to under promise. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). In order to stay open to the flood of intuition that could enter your decision making at any moment, agree not to rely solely on the navigation of your mind and logic. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ll have the opportunity to bring your work to a new crowd or mingle outside of your usual setting. This is not to be missed. Don’t worry about fitting in, it’s better that you don’t. You’ll be a smashing success either way. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You sense that much is riding on your decisions, and you’re right. So even though it would be easier to act impulsively, you’ll take time to reflect on issues that have far reaching consequences, especially to the people around you. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Being well informed on a subject can give

you are narrower vision of it than someone who knows little. Instead of taking an intellectual approach, invite whimsy and wonder to inform you. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). When doubt pulls at you like a rip tide, don’t try and struggle against it.

Federer opens title defense with win in 68 minute B y STEPHEN WILSON

Associated Press LONDON — Ten years after his first Wimbledon championship, Roger Federer began his bid for a record eighth title at the All England Club on Monday with the same dominance that has defined his grass-court greatness. Opening the tournament on Centre Court as defending champion, Federer looked right as home as he dismantled Victor Hanescu of Romania 6-3, 6-2, 6-0 in just 68 minutes. This was a grass-court clinic from Federer, who had 32 winners, seven aces and just six unforced errors. He won 90 percent of the points when he put his first serve in. When his serve is clicking, Federer usually is unbeatable. On this day, he won 15 of his first service points and 24 out of the first 25. Earlier, Wimbledon produced an upset in the women’s draw when Puerto Rican teenager Monica Puig defeated fifth-seeded Sara Errani 6-3, 6-2. Second-seeded Victoria Azarenka overcame a right knee injury after a scary fall, beating Maria Joao Koehler of Portugal 6-1, 6-2. Azarenka screamed in pain after slipping and falling at the baseline in the second game of the second set. She sobbed on court and received medical treatment. Playing the rest of the match with a heavy wrap on her right knee, Azarenka limped noticeably but managed to win comfortably against Koehler, making her Wimbledon debut. Last year, Federer equaled Pete Sampras and William Renshaw with seven Wimbledon titles. He is now contending to become the first man to win the tournament eight times, which would bring his total of Grand Slam titles to 18. In keeping with tradition, Federer had the honor of playing the first match on the sport’s biggest stage as the reigning men’s champion. This was the seventh time he strode out first on Centre Court. “It’s slightly different,” he said. “Nine years ago when I came out the first time, it was the most special thing in the world. It still feels amazing. It was an absolute pleasure playing on Centre Court.” Federer came out wearing a white collared jacket with orange trim, then quickly got down to business. He never faced a break point and broke six times. Federer has a habit of making things look easy. And so it was in the opening game when, stranded at the net, he reached behind him for a reflex forehand volley that landed in for a winner. In the third set, Federer lifted a perfect backhand lob over the 6-foot-6 Hanescu for a break and a 5-0 lead. It didn’t take long for Wimbledon to produce its first upset. Puig slugged 38 winners in overwhelming Errani in the first match on Court 18. The 19-year-old Puig, playing her first grass-court tournament as a pro, completely outplayed the Italian veteran with her hard-hitting baseline game. Errani was runner-up at last year’s French Open and had reached at least the semifinals of three of the last five Grand Slams. But on the slick grass at the All England club Monday, she had only 13 winners and was broken four times.

Brett Continued from Page 1B face Brett is whether he’ll be around to witness it. The Hall of Fame third baseman turned down numerous opportunities to coach over the years, mostly because he didn’t want to deal with the daily grind. But he also didn’t know whether he’d be any good at it, a hard admission for someone who has always excelled in baseball. So even when the Royals reassigned hitting coaches Jack Maloof and Andre David and came calling once more, Brett accepted the interim job with reservations. He told manager Ned Yost and general manager Dayton Moore he would give it a month and see how things were working out. That month is quickly approaching an end and the results so far — at least in black-and-white terms — have been modest at best and a humbling disappointment at worst. The Royals were hitting .261 when Brett put on the old No. 5. They were averaging four runs a game,

and ranked near the bottom of the American League in just about every statistical category. Since he took over, the team is batting just .247 and scoring about 3.7 runs per game. Their walk rate has improved ever-so slightly, but their power numbers have declined. They’re hitting fewer home runs and extra-base hits, which is hard to imagine given the lack of power they were already demonstrating during the early part of the season. “As an offensive group, we haven’t come together as a team,” Yost acknowledged. “We’re still trying to take on too much responsibility individually instead of just doing whatever it takes.” But that old adage that numbers never lie? Well, Yost believe they can. In just about every relative statistic, the Royals have regressed under Brett, but there are plenty of reasons to explain it. It takes time for changes to take hold. Subtle tweaks to a swing and, more important, a mindset can sometimes take months to reflect in the numbers. In some cases, players

Alex Gordon was hitting .340 when Brett came aboard but is just .152 since, putting his season average of .288 closer to what he’d be expected to bat. Lorenzo Cain’s average has slid from .282 to .262, more in line with what he hit last season. But in players that Brett has worked most closely with, Eric Hosmer and Mike Moustakas among them, there’s been profound improvement. Hosmer’s average has climbed from .262 to .275, and he is starting to pull the ball

Effort Level Continued from Page 1B opportunity. “We weren’t ready to play. We got down early and I think we competed after that, but you can’t give up big innings early in games.” The tournament evened Junction City’s record to 9-9 on the season. Despite the sub-par showing, Gerstner is confident

his team will respond in a positive fashion when the Hawks return to action tonight for a double header against Rock Creek at Rathert Stadium. “The thing I like about our team is that they tend to respond very well,” He said. “Nobody hangs their heads. Nobody points fingers. I love that we had an optional practice Monday morning and we had a great group there. I think we’ll come back.”

more. Moustakas has nudged his average over.200 after hitting .187 prior to Brett’s arrival, often crediting his new batting coach with the improvement. Exactly what has Moustakas been told? “Our little secret,” he said. “I’m learning,” Brett explained. “I’ve never done this before. Done it with my kids until they got to high school — I was the assistant coach on all their teams. But teaching an 8-year-old to throw a baseball and hit a baseball? Pretty easy.”
