Kobach speaks to local Republicans Second Amendment focus of discussion. By ANGIE HAFLICH

Brad Nading/Telegram

Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach talks about legislation for guns made in Kansas Wednesday at the Clarion Inn during a Finney County Republican Party reception.

Secretary of State Kris Kobach spoke about the Second Amendment and Kansas’ laws designed to protect it at a reception hosted by the Finney County Republican Party at the Clarion Inn Wednesday night. Kobach said the state of Kansas is a forerunner in seeking ways to not only protect the Second Amendment, but the constitution as a whole. Speaking of the 2010 amendment to the Kansas state constitution that specifies the right of every Kansan to keep and bear arms, Kobach said voter turnout broke a record that still stands. “The Kansas law reads, ‘A person has the right to keep and bear arms for the defense of self, family, home and state, for lawful hunting and recreational use and for any other

lawful purpose.’ We put that in our state constitution in 2010. You may remember voting on it on the 2010 ballot ... The number of Kansans who voted yes for protecting the right to keep and bear arms was a record 88.2 percent of the public. No other state in America has come close,” he said. “That says something. It says more than, ‘We just like things that go boom.’ It also says we are a freedom-loving state. It says that we are a state that does not think the possession of arms should be prescriptive only to certain specially-trained government people. When you have the attitude that everybody ought to be able to keep, enjoy, use and defend themselves with arms, you’ve got a certain attitude about the people, about the people’s responsibility, about their ability to handle their freedoms, about their discipline to use these freedoms responsibly. I think that says something great about the people of the state of Kansas, over and above the fact that we like guns.” Kobach said recent Supreme

Court decisions indicate that the majority of the Supreme Court justices don’t believe individuals have the right to bear arms, referring to that as the bad news. “The good news is, in the state of Kansas, we are doing some incredible things to protect our rights to keep and bear arms,” he said, referring to recently passed Senate Bill 102. “It says, ‘If a firearm is assembled in Kansas and it never leaves the state of Kansas, then that firearm has not traveled in interstate commerce and the federal government cannot regulate it in any respect at all.’ And then it goes one step further and says, ‘If a federal agent attempts to regulate with a federal rule, regulation or statute, that federal agent is committing a felony in the state of Kansas.’ This is a serious law saying we believe the constitution means what it says and the constitution doesn’t say that the Congress has the right to regulate firearms.

Area firefighters battle hay fire near Moscow

Hay bales burn north of Moscow Wednesday as firefighters from area counties battle the flames. If winds shift and blow the blaze toward Moscow, the community may face evacuation.

Fire could force evacuation. By RACHAEL GRAY

MOSCOW — The town of Moscow could face the possibility of evacuation this morning, if winds were to shift and blow flames from a large fire on the outskirts toward the heart of the small town. Since late Tuesday night, firefighters have been battling a blaze of burning hay bales at Bartlet Grain Co., on the north edge of town. Winds were 25 to 35 mph Wednesday, making battling the fire difficult. Moscow Fire Chief Darroll Munson said if those winds were to shift this morning, as predicted, Moscow would be in danger. “The biggest concern is if that wind changes, we’ll have to evacuate Moscow,” he said. Munson said that if that’s the case, officials will contact the Red Cross to set up a station for Moscow residents in Hugoton. According to Munson, some of the hay bales belong to Abengoa Bionergy while others in the massive stacks belong to

Cattle Empire. The high wind speeds Wednesday made it difficult to battle the fire. Due to the texture and density of the stacks of hay bales, fighting the blaze with water was difficult. On Wednesday afternoon, firefighters began to apply a flame retardant foam to the bales. “We’re hoping we can get enough saturation that it’s effective,” Munson said Wednesday afternoon. Hazard Control Technologies, from Fayetteville, Ga., was in the area already to give a seminar on the foam. Munson said since the company was in the area, they offered assistance and offered the product for firefighters to use. Munson said the loss so far is massive. “They lost about a third of their product,” Munson said about Cattle Empire. Abengoa lost about 20 stacks of 50,000 hay bales. “I was the first one on the scene at 11:45 (p.m.),” Munson said about the initial response on Tuesday night. More firefighters were called throughout the early morning hours Wednesday, See Burning, Page A5

Firefighters took a brief break Wednesday afternoon in Moscow while battling a blaze of burning hay bales on the town’s north end. Officials don’t know what started the fire, and said Moscow may be evacuated this morning if winds change and fire threatens the rest of the town.

‘In Cold Blood’ DNA testing still inconclusive in Florida case TOPEKA (AP) — DNA testing so far has been inconclusive on whether two men executed in Kansas for the 1959 killings that inspired the book “In Cold Blood” can also be linked to the unsolved slayings of a Florida family weeks later, a senior investigator said Wednesday. Kansas Bureau of Investigation will continue testing material collected from the remains of convicted murderers Richard Hickock and Perry

Smith, Deputy Director Kyle Smith said. Investigators believe the men fled to Florida after killing the Clutter family in a gruesome case later documented by Truman Capote in his genreforming classic. “The analysis is not completed,” Kyle Smith told The Associated Press. “We are still trying.” In Florida, the Sarasota County sheriff’s office says it remains optimistic that it can

resolve questions about the killings of four family members, just days before Christmas 1959. A detective there began investigating the case again in 2007. “Hopefully, science will be able to give us the answers,” spokeswoman Wendy Rose said. The KBI initially projected it would have definitive results from the DNA early this month, but the agency now has no timetable for when the testing will be complete.

“Justice never rests,” Smith said. Hickock and Perry Smith were hanged in 1965 in Kansas for the killings of Herb Clutter, his wife and two of their children in the family’s farmhouse outside the southwest Kansas town of Holcomb. The hunt for the killers mesmerized the nation and drew journalists from across the U.S. to the small farming town. Capote’s book takes readers through the

killings, Hickock’s and Perry Smith’s trial and their execution. It is celebrated because it reads like a novel; scholars have long debated its accuracy. Attention quickly turned to Hickock and Perry Smith when, only weeks after the Kansas slayings, a Florida family was killed.

Lawmakersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; work stalls on tax, budget issues TOPEKA (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Kansas legislators Wednesday suspended work on tax and spending issues so House leaders could survey fellow Republicans about adjusting the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sales tax to stabilize the budget. The House and Senate met only briefly on the 96th day of lawmakersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; annual session, guaranteeing it will last at least a week past the time specified by the state constitution. The two chambersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; negotiators on tax issues had no meetings scheduled, and the lack of action on a tax plan held up consideration of a proposed $14.5 billion state budget for each of the new fiscal years, beginning in July. Still, Republican Gov. Sam Brownback said the GOP-dominated Legislature was making progress. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to come up with a good budget and tax plan â&#x20AC;&#x201D; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to happen,â&#x20AC;? he told reporters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People just have to work through all the challenges. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard, and

theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re working through it.â&#x20AC;? But Democratic legislative leaders criticized Republicans over the â&#x20AC;&#x153;gridlockâ&#x20AC;? and said legislators could create administrative headaches for the state if their session continues into next month. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Legislature is now wandering aimlessly into its 97th day with the Governor unable to lead it across the finish line,â&#x20AC;? House Minority Leader Paul Davis, a Lawrence Democrat, said in a statement. The sales tax was the key issue because Republican leaders disagreed about whether it should remain at 6.3 percent. The tax is scheduled by law to drop to 5.7 percent in July, but Brownback and top GOP senators want to keep it at or near its current rate to raise additional revenues to prevent budget shortfalls while Kansas cuts personal income tax cuts further. The tax legislation would follow up on massive individual income tax cuts enacted last year.

The House approved a plan earlier this year to allow the sales tax to drop as planned and make less aggressive income tax cuts than Brownback proposed. But on Tuesday, House members rejected a proposal that their GOP leaders offered during negotiations to set the sales tax at 6 percent. Speaker Ray Merrick, of Stilwell, met privately Wednesday with small groups of other House Republicans to get a sense of what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d accept. Merrick said after his day of meetings that no new plan had emerged from the talks. Other legislators involved in the discussions said House Republicans had a variety of positions. Legislative negotiators agreed last week on a spending plan for each of the next two fiscal years. But House GOP leaders were holding off on a vote until the two chambers have a firm agreement on taxes, frustrating their Senate counterparts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to walk out the door

with a tax plan and a budget plan that balances,â&#x20AC;? said Senate President Susan Wagle, a Wichita Republican. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The House has to take a position on one of those two items to start the process to end the session.â&#x20AC;? The state constitution specifies 90 days for the Legislatureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual session, though lawmakers can meet longer â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and have 32 of the past 40 years. However, only eight previous sessions were longer than 96 days, with the record of 107 days set in 2002. Davis and Senate Minority Leader Anthony Hensley said a variety of â&#x20AC;&#x153;complicationsâ&#x20AC;? could occur from a long session, citing information from the Legislatureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s non-partisan research staff. For example, the Legislatureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top staff tax analyst noted in an email Monday that the state is required by law to give retailers 30 daysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; notice of a change in the sales tax, or it canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hold them liable for not collecting the tax at a new rate.

Saline County to send juveniles to Junction SALINA (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Saline County commissioners have approved a plan to house the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s juvenile inmates at a regional detention center in Junction City. The commissioner signed an agreement Tuesday to send juvenile inmates to the North Central Kansas Regional Juvenile Detention Facility. The county will pay a $10,000 membership fee and nearly $405,000 a year to house the inmates. Saline County Sheriff Glen Kochanowski closed the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s juvenile center last month, saying a lack of staff and overcrowding were creating safety issues. The Salina Journal reports Saline County currently has 12 inmates housed in Junction City.

General Manager Lars Paulsen said store set up began three weeks ago â&#x20AC;&#x153;with empty shelves.â&#x20AC;? He called the community reception on Wednesday â&#x20AC;&#x153;fantastic.â&#x20AC;? A contractor preview was held Tuesday night, which got a â&#x20AC;&#x153;strong receptionâ&#x20AC;? and good

improvement merchandise such as lumber, a garden center with a full selection of plants and fertilizer, a hardware division that includes seasonal items and tools, tool sheds, patio furniture, storage items, a small selection of groceries and clothing, doors, windows, flooring, tubs, vanities, carpet, washers, dryers, garage doors, insulation, flooring, pet care items, bird feeders and food.

Paulsen said. For the windows, for example, a window is set up the way it would be on a real home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve even designed six kitchens, so you can really get a feel for the different styles of cabinets,â&#x20AC;? Paulsen said. Customers such as Jerry Guerrero, Matt Quinene and Jason Ryman were excited about Menardsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; opening. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like the store. I hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been to a Menards. So far, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s real-

We have to travel 80 miles to get anything.â&#x20AC;? Having been to a Menards in North Dakota, Quinene said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been anticipating the storeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opening since it was first announced last year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really happy to see it come to Garden City,â&#x20AC;? he said. Ryman, of Pierceville, said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a do-it-yourself guy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like it,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be a valuable asset to our community.â&#x20AC;? The first phase of the retail project included development and construction of the Menards store and four smaller lots for yet-to-be named retail stores, along with parking, utilities and highway, street and infrastructure improvements. The second phase includes build-out of the remaining property on 60-plus acres with additional retail lots.

Beef salute Annual event celebrates blend of history, future.


eef production has been an economic force for many years in southwest Kansas — making it a strong local tradition, to say the least. A look around delivers plenty of proof, from grazing cattle to feedlots and meatpacking plants. And it’s all been cause for a grand celebration every year since the late 1960s, with What’s the biggest challocal residents lenge ahead in the beef and visitors industry? Add your comhonoring ments at the end of the the industry online version of this editorial at during Beef opinion. Empire Days in Garden City. Count this year’s Beef Empire Days — “Beef ... The Taste of Tradition!” — as another opportunity to celebrate the significant impact of an industry that for generations has energized the regional economy with cattle ranches, feedlots, packing plants and related businesses. The local event, which runs Friday through June 9, offers an impressive menu of educational and entertaining events for all ages, and helps people understand what happens behind the scenes in beef production. When it comes to tradition, the history of an industry that has done so much to drive the local economy always warrants attention. At the same time, its future matters even more. Look for Beef Empire Days demonstrations, events and other information to address innovation and related developments in a state that repeatedly turns out impressive numbers. Kansas ranked third nationally with 5.85 million cattle on ranches and in feedyards as of Jan. 1, 2013, according to the Kansas Livestock Association. The Sunflower State also was third in commercial cattle processed in 2011 with 6.4 million head — all the more notable at a time painfully dry conditions have exacted a toll. Feedlots and meatpacking plants in particular have been feeling the heat of severe drought for years. Soaring grain prices driven by drought meant more expensive livestock feed — costly enough to affect cattle numbers as feedlots found it tougher to operate. While the business always presents challenges, people in the industry have shown a willingness to improvise and make changes when necessary in order to prosper. As a result, the successful past and future of beef production in a region known for delivering a quality product will remain cause for celebration. Enjoy this year’s offering of Beef Empire Days.

Today’s quotes “Citizens are already packing. Some legally, some not. You never know. Signs on a door don’t stop people from carrying a gun into a business. ...” — Online remark selected by the editorial staff from comments at in response to an editorial on negative fallout of a plan to allow concealed handguns in public buildings.

“It’s not a competitive barbecue. It is the backyard/Dad barbecue, so we’ve kind of been stressing that. It’s not super competitive. It’s just, ‘Come out and try your hand at cooking a brisket, tri-tip and ribs, just for fun.’” — Beef Empire Days Executive Director Deann Gillen-Lehman, from a story in today’s edition on the Beef Empire Days Battle of the Beef BBQ Challenge.

Demonstrate loyalty and support I

magine you are a 19-yearold Marine. You are riding in a Humvee with four other Marines — your friends — when an improvised explosive device explodes. Two of your friends die instantly, but you are “lucky.” Though bloodied and bruised, you survive to fight another day. You will fight many more days, too. With our military stretched thin at hot spots across the world, our servicemen and women are serving more deployments than ever — some, as many as seven deployments during a 12-year span — and enduring more stress than ever before. The nature of war fighting has changed, after all. Unlike in traditional ground wars, today’s fighting men and women are battling insurgents. Attack can come at any time, from anywhere: IEDs, snipers, rocketpropelled grenades, firefights, ambushes, suicide bombs. If you’re “lucky,” you will survive more close scrapes. Sure, you will carry scars of war, but you will make it home. If you’re unlucky, you will be killed, severely wounded or maimed. More than 6,500 soldiers have died during the Afghanistan and Iraq wars — more than 50,000 have been wounded. Many of the wounded have suffered damage so severe, they are medically discharged and sent home. Imagine the transformation. One moment, you are strong and healthy. The next moment, a blast goes off and you are without an arm or a leg, or shrapnel is lodged in your brain. Back home, you are withdrawn. You don’t want to talk about what you experienced with anyone — family, friends or Department of Veterans Affairs doctors — because they can never understand. You bottle up all the memo-


Cagle Cartoons

ries inside you — you try to bury the pain — but you probably will not succeed. You are likely to suffer Post Traumatic Stress Disorder — flashbacks, nightmares and disruptive memories that you cannot control — or, worse, Traumatic Brain Injury, which can cause a host of cognitive and emotional problems. You likely find it hard to transition to civilian life. You may be tempted to turn to alcohol, drugs or worse — the suicide rate among active and retired veterans is 22 a day. There is a reason why nearly half of our 2.5 million Iraq and Afghanistan veterans are unemployed — and more than 12,000 Iraq and Afghanistan vets are homeless. But you are a veteran. You don’t want pity. You were a trained warrior. You volunteered to serve. All you want is to talk with other veterans who experienced what you experienced — to reach out to a network of people who can provide you with the skills and support you will need to successfully transition back to civilian live. Well, thanks to retired Marine Corps Maj. Gen. Tom Jones, such support is available. Six years ago, as part of the Semper Fi Fund, which provides financial support to wounded, injured and critically ill members of the U.S. armed forces and their families, Jones established the Semper Fi Odyssey Transition Program ( semper-fi-odyssey/).

The Semper Fi Odyssey Transition Program provides returning wounded Marines with six intense days of training and curriculum to prepare them for life after military service and strengthen their mental, physical, spiritual, emotional and social well-being. The program is conducted by team leaders, a good many of them who had been wounded, injured or critically ill warriors themselves who’ve successfully transitioned to civilian life. By the end of the week, participants develop actionable road maps and plan for life to guide their transitions, as well as networks of mentors and friends who will provide ongoing support — support that is essential to helping those who have served their country embrace the skills they will need to serve their families, communities and careers. We must take time to pay homage to the men and women who have served, particularly the wounded, injured and critically ill veterans who need a little added support. Donate to the Semper Fi Fund ( or contact the organization to learn how you can volunteer. Better yet, hire one of these veterans to work for your company. They have received worldclass training, and developed impressive workplace skills, during their service. It would be one small way we can demonstrate our loyalty and support to so many young and women who have paid a high price to secure our freedoms. As the Marines like to say: Semper fidelis!

Rich versus rich in Washington C

all it the revenge of the 1 percent. President Obama bested Mitt Romney by portraying his Republican opponent as a rich businessman who used offshore tax havens and ran enterprises into the ground without regard for working people. On Thursday, senators held a confirmation hearing for Obama’s nominee to be commerce secretary: a billionaire who benefits from offshore tax havens, whose family owned a failed savings and loan and who is accused by unions of mistreating workers. Turns out the wealthy didn’t lose the 2012 election; rather, the Republican rich lost to the Democratic rich. This is not to question the qualifications of Penny Pritzker, the Hyatt hotels heiress and Democratic mega-donor Obama nominated. I suspect she’ll be a fine commerce secretary when she is confirmed, as she surely will be. But her confirmation hearing was a reminder of how wealth is power in Washington. A multimillionaire president nominated a billionaire who raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for his campaigns, and he sent her to be confirmed by the millionaires’ club that is the U.S. Senate. “You will certainly have my vote,” commerce committee Chairman Jay Rockefeller (average estimated net worth: $103 million, according to the Center for Responsive Politics) assured the nominee (net worth $1.85 billion, according to Forbes). “My hope,” said Virginia Democratic Sen. Mark Warner ($228 million), is that “this committee will recommend you.” Missouri Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill ($22 million) told Pritzker, “I find it very refreshing to find someone who is stepping up like you are in this position.” Another committee member,


The Washington Post

Sen. Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut ($100 million), didn’t speak at the hearing but issued a statement calling the heiress “a longtime friend with a lifetime of business experience and acumen that will serve her well.” There wasn’t a mention during the two-hour hearing that the nominee had recently informed the committee that because of a “clerical error,” she omitted more than $80 million in income from the financial disclosures she filed. The hearing was in its closing minutes before anybody mentioned the tax havens. The ranking Republican, Sen. John Thune of South Dakota, did so almost apologetically, saying he was “going to channel Sen. [Chuck] Grassley,” a Republican who is not on the committee, who had said it would be “hypocritical” not to press Pritzker on “the kind of tax avoidance activity that the president dismisses as fat-cat shenanigans for others.” “I am the beneficiary of offshore family trusts that were set up when I was a little girl,” the nominee replied. “I didn’t create them. I don’t direct them.” Neither Thune nor anybody else followed up on her 70-word answer, and the family’s stake in the failed S&L got similar treatment from Thune. The audience was packed with Hyatt workers in red shirts and baseball caps representing Unite Here, a hotel-workers union that opposes Pritzker’s confirmation on grounds that Hyatt has “a broad pattern of labor abuses, including aggressive outsourcing, low wages and the mistreatment of housekeepers.” But the only senator to men-

tion the union complaint was Sen. Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.), who appeared content with Pritzker’s assurance that she has a “good relationship” with labor before they moved on to discuss what the nominee called “the importance of salmon.” Republicans probably went easy on Pritzker because they saw her as the most pro-business appointee they’re likely to get from a Democrat. And Democrats weren’t about to give an ally a hard time. Pritzker and her husband have donated nearly $1 million to federal candidates since 1990, almost all to Democrats, according to the Center for Responsive Politics, which tracks campaign finance. She raised at least $500,000 for Obama’s 2012 campaign and was his campaign finance chairman in 2008. She contributed $250,000 to Obama’s second inaugural and about $120,000 to Democratic committees in the last two election cycles. This doesn’t mean the lawmakers were bought. But it does add to the impression that the nominee and her interrogators are all part of the same club of the wealthy and the powerful. About half the members of Congress have a net worth of more than $1 million, the center found — about 15 times the worth of the typical American household. And it’s a bipartisan club, from Republican committee chairmen Darrell Issa ($480 million) and Michael McCaul ($500 million) to Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi ($94 million). The Senate’s wealthiest member was John Kerry ($236 million), but he left to join an even more exclusive club. How exclusive? Well, it’s about to land a billionaire.

am an Eagle Scout. I’m sure your first response is to thank me for sharing, unless you’re a Boy Scout official, who would prefer I don’t. But it’s true. Back in the dark ages of my youth, I compiled the required number of merit badges and completed the other assignments. So I got the Eagle. It was/is considered a badge of honor, and, as such, the framed certificate has long been displayed in my office. If nothing else, it causes anyone who sees it to wonder where I went wrong. However, as it became known that the Scouts’ traditional threefingered salute was one-fingered when it came to gays, I turned the award upside down to express my aversion to such discrimination. Well, now it’s on its side. Like the traditional half-empty or half-full debate, we can discuss whether it’s half-up or half-down, but the Boy Scouts of America have taken a step in the right direction. Finally, after all these years, they’ve decided to accept youngsters who openly acknowledge that they’re gay. While it’s a partial step away from bigotry — non-heterosexual adults are still barred from becoming leaders — it is enough to cause religiously intolerant and other purveyors of ignorance to have a hissy fit. Texas Gov. Rick Perry was prominent among those “greatly disappointed.” One of life’s important guiding principles is that if Rick Perry is against something, be for it, and vice versa. Of course, with most any credo, there are exceptions. Perry has expressed some thoughts about immigrants that fall short of the hatred we get from those in his usual posse. When it comes to gays, though, he’s right out in front of the backward movement. Unfortunately, he and others who fear instead of think are still able to exert the power of their hatred on public policy. Even as we witness majority acceptance nationwide of alternative choices manifested in the military nullification of “don’t ask, don’t tell” and spreading legalization of same-sex marriage, we still are burdened with bigoted public policy. The halting steps toward humane treatment of immigrants would have been stopped dead in their tracks had legislation to bring some sanity to the issue included a common-sense provision that would extend permanent residency to same-gender partners just as it does for conventional man-woman couples. This is mainly a result of political necessity. Senate Republicans who signed on to the compromise largely because their party has been hammered by the negative Hispanic vote, nevertheless said extending the proposal to include gays would poison any chance of getting GOP support. So the Democrats swallowed their pride and their principles, allowing simple fairness to be kept out. All this could well be affected by rulings that are due from the Supreme Court, particularly the one that will decide whether the Defense of Marriage Act should be upheld. DOMA blocks federal benefits from all but families made up of husbands and wives. If the Supremes overturn that, it ultimately could doom inequitable laws such as those pertaining to immigration. Of course, there are two huge “ifs” involved: as in, IF the proposal is passed in the House, which sits on the extreme right wing of the Capitol; and, of course, IF the justices overturn DOMA. We’ve gotten a bit smug about how the attitudes have improved toward those who embrace nontraditional love. Unfortunately, there is still a lot of tolerance for intolerance, and even worse a virulent narrow-mindedness that has disproportionate influence on our laws. The uproar over the Boy Scouts reflects that. The fact that there was such agony over taking a half-step ahead demonstrates just how far we all have to go. By the way, Rick Perry is an Eagle Scout, like I am. It just goes to show that any shining honor can sometimes be tarnished.

Burning: Hay fire near Moscow could force evacuation Continued from Page A1

and eventually firefighters from Morton, Grant, Seward, and Haskell counties and Lakin responded. If Wednesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s efforts and the foam donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work, firefighters could be battling the burning bales for four to five days, Munson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If it does work, we could have this out later (Thursday),â&#x20AC;?

Munson said Wednesday. Munson said the cause of the fire is still under investigation. Ashley Slemp owns The Store, a business located across the street to the south of the burning hay bales. Slemp opened the store at about 2:30 a.m. Wednesday so emergency crews could get food and water. Later that morning, she served breakfast to those

helping fight the fire. Local residents have been donating Gatorade and water. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They talked about evacuating earlier. I wish they would,â&#x20AC;? she said at about noon Wednesday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very nervous, scared and upset,â&#x20AC;? she said. The National Weather Service issued a tornado watch for Stevens County and surrounding areas early

Wednesday. A wind advisory, with speeds up to 35 mph, also had been issued Wednesday. Crews were filling semitrailers of hay from the unburned supply on Wednesday. Tate Williams, 15, said he woke up at about 7:30 a.m. Wednesday to the sound of his fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s firefighter radio. Williams said the fire emergency reminded him of a 2011 fire when Satanta was evacu-

ated. That fire damaged homes and forced an evacuation of Satanta. Williams said the hay at the northern edge of town has become a staple. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be weird not being able to jump on the hay bales,â&#x20AC;? he said. A call to the state fire marshallâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office seeking comment Wednesday afternoon was not immediately returned.

Kobach: Gun laws discussed Like your health care policy? You may soon be losing it Continued from Page A1

in article one, the right to regulate firearms, and for years, Congress has been regulating firearms under the guise of regulating interstate commerce. Article One Section 8 gives Congress the right to regulate commerce between the states ... So we drafted this law to say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;What if the firearm never enters interstate commerce, never leaves the state of Kansas?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder wrote a letter

to Gov. Sam Brownback claiming it is unconstitutional, but Kobach said the point being made by the law is in regard to interstate commerce, as well as the 10th Amendment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are in a really interesting period in American politics where you have a number of states that are telling the federal government, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;You are flat-out wrong. You do not understand our constitution and we are standing up for the original meaning of the

constitution,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s encouraging that states are stepping out bravely and broadly in defense of our rights. I would say the state of Kansas is right there in the front of the pack. Certainly Texas is there, Montana, Oklahoma, Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia â&#x20AC;&#x201D; those are the states at the top of the pack wanting to defend our constitution, wanting to defend our Second Amendment and wanting to defend our 10th Amendment.â&#x20AC;?

Cold case: DNA testing inconclusive Continued from Page A1

their home in Osprey, Fla., south of Sarasota. The case was never solved. Investigators believed Hickock and Smith fled to Florida after killing the Clutter family, then traveled to Las Vegas, where they were captured. A lie detector test cleared them of the Walker slayings â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but in 1987, a polygraph expert declared that such tests were worthless in the 1960s. Christine Walker also had been raped, so Florida authorities sought to compare a DNA profile from semen on her clothing to the DNA profiles taken from the remains of Hickock and Smith.

The convicted murderers were buried in Lansing. Kansas officials had their remains exhumed in December so state investigators could collect bone fragments for DNA samples. Kyle Smith said the KBI will eventually turn over results of the DNA tests to Florida officials who will announce any links between the cases. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In Cold Bloodâ&#x20AC;? alludes to the Walker killings in a short passage; Capote incorrectly states that the slayings occurred near Tallahassee, Fla., about five hours north of the actual scene. He also relates a conversation between Hickock and Smith on a beach in Miami, and has Smith speculating that â&#x20AC;&#x153;a luna-

ticâ&#x20AC;? copied the Kansas killings. The book says that in reply, Hickock â&#x20AC;&#x153;shrugged and grinned and trotted down to the oceanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s edge.â&#x20AC;? Authorities in Florida have said Hickock and Smith were spotted at least a dozen times from Tallahassee to Miami. On the day of the Walker slayings, authorities have said, Hickock and Smith bought items at a Sarasota department store. The Sarasota County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s detective who began re-investigating the Walker deaths in 2007 said the Walkers had been considering buying a 1956 Chevy Bel Air, the kind of car Hickock and Smith were driving through Florida.

WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Many people who buy their own health insurance could get surprises in the mail this fall: cancellation notices because their current policies arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t up to the basic standards of President Barack Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health care law. They, and some small businesses, will have to find replacement plans â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and that has some state insurance officials worried about consumer confusion. Rollout of the Affordable Care Act is going full speed ahead, despite repeal efforts by congressional Republicans. New insurance markets called exchanges are to open in every state this fall. Middle-class consumers who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get coverage on the job will be able to pick private health plans, while low-income people will be steered to an expanded version of Medicaid in states that accept it. The goal is to cover most of the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nearly 50 million uninsured, but even Obama says there will be bumps in the road. And discontinued insurance plans could be another bump. Also, it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem

to square with one of the presidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best known promises about his health care overhaul: â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you like your health care plan, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be able to keep your health care plan.â&#x20AC;? But supporters of the overhaul are betting that consumers wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t object once they realize the coverage they will get under the new law is superior to current bare-bones insurance. For example, insurers will no longer be able to turn people down because of medical problems. Other bumps on the road to the new health care law include potentially unaffordable premiums for smokers unless states act to waive them, a new $63-per-head fee that will hit companies already providing coverage to employees and dependents, and a long-term care insurance program that had to be canceled because of the risk it could go belly up The Obama administration did not respond directly to questions about the potential fallout from cancellation notices. Instead, Health and Human Services spokeswoman

The memory of the righteous is blessed, but the name of the wicked will rot. Proverbs 10:7

Joanne Peters released a prepared statement saying: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Beginning in October, individuals and small businesses will be able to shop for insurance in the marketplace, where we are already seeing that increased competition and transparency are leading to a range of options for quality, affordable plans.â&#x20AC;? For the most part, state insurance commissioners are giving insurers the option of canceling existing plans or changing them to comply with new federal requirements. Large employer plans that cover most workers and their families are unlikely to be affected. Seen as consumer safeguards by the administration, the new requirements limit costs paid by policyholders, and also expand benefits. That includes better preventive care, and also improved prescription coverage in many cases. The most important feature may be protection for your pocketbook if you get really sick: The new plans limit copayments and other outof-pocket costs to $6,400 a year for individuals.

Normally, when I see people who have increased their physical activity and made healthy changes in diet leading to the kind of weight loss you have experienced, I hear how much more energy they have and how much better they feel. The fact that you are fatigued and feel like you are getting recurrent infections leads me to be pretty confident there is something else going on. Unfortunately, the hard part is finding out what. A low thyroid state (hypothyroidism) is a common cause of low energy and cold intolerance, so that needs to be checked right away. Medication side effects are possible, as well as more esoteric considerations. I am also concerned that your depression might not be entirely treated either. Revisit your primary doctor for a complete evaluation.

Baby wipes may not be flushable Dear Heloise: I am a retired engineer from a water-system company. Recently, I met with my fellow workers, who are still employed, for lunch. They complained that baby wipes coming into the plant are causing a huge problem. Apparently, more and more of these wipes are being disposed of in sewer systems, and they are nondegradable. They bind the screens going into the plant and knot together to form ropes as long as 40 feet. Further upstream, they form into balls and plug sewer pipes. Please advise your readers to purchase only biodegradable products or deposit those that are nondegradable some-

where besides the sewer system. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Mike F. in Texas M i k e , thank you for this good reminder. How right you are! There are biodegradable wipes and ones that should not be flushed. Wipes are

deemed flushable if they meet certain guidelines, such as clearing toilets and properly maintained pipes. However, most city water systems state that they are not safe to flush. So, folks, please donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t flush anything that shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be. Read the packaging. This also can prevent a plumbing bill! â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Heloise

into Marthaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mother. She has never mentioned my marriage. I am thinking of â&#x20AC;&#x153;unfriendingâ&#x20AC;? her on Facebook. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Raised with Manners Dear Manners: Martha was remiss not to send a card of congratulations. But when friends go in different directions â&#x20AC;&#x201D; figuratively as well as physically â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the closeness tends to fade. It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean Martha no longer cares, only that the friendship has become a casual interest. Facebook is actually perfect for that. You can keep track of each other without having to invest any genuine effort. Dear Annie: I believe you missed the boat with your answer to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Irritated by Lack of Thoughtfulness,â&#x20AC;? who said a woman carried on a cell phone conversation during a funeral. You said it was impolite, but added that the phone could be turned on â&#x20AC;&#x153;muteâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;vibrateâ&#x20AC;? and emergencies handled out of earshot. We have lost all sensitivity to others. At funerals, weddings and church services, phones should be left at home or in the car. If something is so important that one must stay connected, one should not attend the function. Not so long ago, cellphones didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exist, and we managed to survive. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Litchfield, Maine


Dear Annie: I am in my 20s and am engaged to a beautiful girl. Our religion prohibits sex before marriage. But when â&#x20AC;&#x153;Donnaâ&#x20AC;? tells me to stop kissing her, I persist. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see why not. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just kissing. Donna says she has not been firm enough with me and when she says no, she means no. Yesterday, I was sitting next to Donna and started kissing her on the lips. She said no, and when I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop, she slapped my face. It felt like I had been stung by a bee. Donna told me she definitely had to slap me. My cousin said that in a dating situation, the woman sets the rules, and it is her prerogative to slap a manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s face if she feels he has gone too far. Do you agree? I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think she had to slap me. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; John Dear John: Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to believe you are living in this century. While we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t recommend that women go around slapping men, anything you do after Donna says â&#x20AC;&#x153;noâ&#x20AC;? could be considered assault or even attempted rape. She is entitled to defend herself. She could call the police. Show some respect for your girlfriend, and stop kissing her when she asks you to stop. You sound too immature to get married. Dear Annie: I am a 32-year-old professional woman and a newlywed. I have been best friends with

Thursday May 30, 2013 HAPPY BIRTHDAY The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult ARIES (March 21-April 19) HHHH Try to assume a more laid-back attitude. Consolidate recent successes. Your listening skills will emerge while you’re in a discussion with a sibling or neighbor. You need to know what you are hearing in order to evaluate what is going on. Tonight: Take some muchneeded downtime. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHHH Meetings and networking point to success. You will instill your support systems with new energy and knowledge. You understand your desires, and you know where you are heading. Others can follow you if they want. Tonight: Make weekend plans if you have not already. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHH Keep reaching out to someone at a distance. You could feel overwhelmed by everything that is happening around you. If you assume responsibility, you will like the outcome. Only you can control certain demons or issues. Tonight: Be available for a late-night discussion. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHH Your ability to deal with the many people around you will make a substantial difference. Allow greater giveand-take between you and someone else. You laugh, and others relax. You naturally lead with your heightened sense of direction. Tonight: It’s a piece of cake. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHH You’ll wonder what might be the best way to proceed, as a partner seems more open to possibilities. You could be amazed by what occurs. Remain laidback, and be willing to change direction. Allow this person to be more dominant. Tonight: Enjoy the conversation. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHHH Listen to feedback. How you handle a situation depends on your ability to flex with others. At the moment, you need to incorporate more of what others desire when making plans. You will have your way soon enough -- don’t worry. Tonight: Listen to suggestions, then decide.



Jacquelline Bigar King Features

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHH You could be in a situation where you want to say exactly what you think, and want to be encouraged to do so as well. Know that you might get a very strong -- maybe even negative -- reaction if you reveal your true thoughts. Tonight: Run errands. Free up the weekend. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHH Your ability to make headway and say what you feel when you want adds tremendous dimension to a relationship. Your imagination flourishes in this situation. Focus on a child or a new love interest. This person needs your time and attention. Tonight: Ever playful. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHH You could be out of energy when it comes to dealing with a difficult family member. You understand this person much more than you might want to. Maintain your boundaries without causing uproar or a fight. Tonight: Head home. Start thinking about the weekend. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHHH Make calls and seek out different opinions before scheduling a meeting. You’ll want to have a sense of direction about where this group is heading. You are a natural leader, and you don’t need to press a point. Others tend to defer to you. Tonight: Hang out with a favorite person. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHH You suddenly could be weighing the pros and cons of a particular situation. You might want to say that you have had enough, so be prepared to act on this verbalization. Check out a purchase with care. Don’t spend what you don’t have. Tonight: Treat a friend to dinner. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHH You are very much in the moment. You might not even bother to investigate some important information you heard through the grapevine. Try to be more alert, especially if a boss or some other authority figure heads your way. Tonight: Finally, it’s time for your whims!

Jennie Barker Road, Garden City, KS 67846. Emissions of oxides of nitrogen (NOx), sulfur dioxide (SO2), carbon monoxide (CO), volatile organic compounds (VOCs), particulate matter (PM), PM with a diameter less than 10 microns (PM10), hazardous air pollutants (HAPs), and carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) were evaluated during the permit review process. A public comment period has been established to allow citizens the opportunity to express any concerns they may have about this proposed permitting action. The public comment period is to begin on May 30, 2013 and end at noon on July 1, 2013.

Alamo close to replacing Cotton atop Big 12 list for future bowls IRVING, Texas (AP) — The Alamo Bowl is close to getting the first choice of Big 12 teams that don’t have a chance to play for the national championship. Big 12 Commissioner Bob Bowlsby said Wednesday the league’s future bowl lineup wasn’t complete but sounded confident the Alamo Bowl in San Antonio would replace the Cotton Bowl as the first destination for teams not in the fourteam College Football Playoff that starts in 2014. “We’re not finished with that yet, but it looks like it’s going to work that way,” Bowlsby said at league meetings in the Dallas area. “We’re not quite there, but we’re not far.”

Bowlsby said the league had agreed in principle with most slots after current agreements expire following the 2013 season, and indicated one of those would be a new alliance with a Florida bowl. “I feel good, in fact, very good about the bowl alignments,” Bowlsby said. “Our priorities are still in place. We want a home out West. We want to be anchored in Texas as much as we can. We want to find a home in Florida. I think those objectives are still intact, and I think we have a pretty good chance to realize them.” The Big 12 appears ready to trade the Holiday Bowl in San Diego for a spot in Florida, pos-

sibly the Russell Athletic Bowl in Orlando. Bowlsby has said the league was talking to the Gator Bowl as well. The Liberty Bowl in Memphis jumped on to the Big 12’s radar last season when 25,000 Iowa State fans showed up after the Cyclones were picked to fill a spot the SEC had to vacate. Bowlsby says that experience led to the idea of having more destinations with realistic drive times. Without the Holiday Bowl, the Big 12 would still have a presence near the West Coast with the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl in Tempe, Ariz.

The Big 12 also voted Wednesday to become the first conference with an eight-person officiating crew, expanding by one. The extra official would be opposite the referee on the offensive side of the ball. The eight-person crew will be used in all league games and select non-conference contests. “I really am excited about it,” Bowlsby said of the one-year pilot program. “I think it will be a very interesting experiment.” Big 12 leaders also received updates on the class-action lawsuit by former players claiming the NCAA uses their

IOC to reconsider wrestling

Federer task gets tougher PARIS (AP) — Now things could get a little more interesting for Roger Federer. After a pair of straightforward and straight-set victories at the French Open against qualifiers ranked outside the top 150, the 17-time major champion will face a seeded player, France’s Julien Benneteau, who not only already beat Federer once this year but also came within two points of upsetting him at Wimbledon, of all places, in 2012. “I think I’m playing OK,” Federer said in something of an understatement, considering he’s dropped 11 games through six sets so far. “Definitely think the next match is going to be sort of the big test for me, to see exactly where I stand.” There wasn’t much trouble for Federer in the second round Wednesday, when he beat twotime NCAA singles champion Somdev Devvarman 6-2, 6-1, 6-1 in less than 1 1/2 hours. It really was something of a laugher, especially with Federer serving at 4-0 in the final set. He hit a first serve well out, and both players waited for the linesman to make a call — which he finally did, albeit after a long delay. Federer and Devvarman chuckled, looked at each other, and chuckled some more. As Federer prepared to hit his second serve, he needed to pause because he couldn’t regain his composure. Otherwise, little bothered Federer. “You obviously know he’s capable of doing certain things, and you try and make life as tough for him as possible,” said Devvarman, who played college tennis at Virginia. “In my case today, I didn’t execute. And sometimes even when I did, I feel like he came up with the better shot.” Federer accumulated a 5412 edge in winners, in part by moving forward to the net on 30 points. “I’m happy that I was playing offensive and aggressive tennis in the first two matches, because I had the opportunity, but I didn’t back off and start to play passive tennis,” Federer said.

images without their permission. Former UCLA star Ed O’Bannon is one the primary plaintiffs. Bowlsby said the case is probably years from being resolved. Bowlsby said meetings with NCAA attorney Donald Remy also included talk of enforcement controversies that have dogged the association in recent months, and Big 12 officials were looking forward to hearing from NCAA president Mark Emmert on Thursday. “The NCAA has gone through a rough time the last few months,” Bowlsby said. “There’s some level of anxiety among our governance groups.”

Associated Press

Kansas City Royals’ Alex Gordon, right, is congratulated by teammates after scoring on a sacrifice fly by Lorenzo Cain during the fourth inning of a baseball game against the St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday in St. Louis.

Royals flushed again by Cards ST. LOUIS (AP) — Pinch hitter Daniel Descalso hit a two-run single with the bases loaded to snap an eighth-inning tie and the St. Louis Cardinals rallied past the scuffling Kansas City Royals with a 5-3 victory on Wednesday night. Luis Mendoza got his first career hit and RBI and held the Cardinals to a run in 5 2-3 innings before the bullpen failed for the Royals, who have lost a seasonworst eight in a row. They dropped the first two games of the interleague series by a combined 10-4 score and have totaled 11 runs the last six games. Matt Holliday and Carlos Beltran homered for the Cardinals, who have won seven of eight and lead the majors with a 35-17 record, and go for a sweep Thursday with touted rookie Michael Wacha making his major league debut. Randy Choate (1-0) got the last out in the eighth and Edward Mujica finished for his 17th save in 17

chances. Lance Lynn missed a chance to go 8-1 the first two months both of his seasons in the St. Louis rotation, allowing two runs in seven innings. Beltran hit his 12th homer off Aaron Crow (0-1) to open the eighth and David Freese tied it with a one-out RBI single. Crow intentionally walked Jon Jay to load the bases, then got Pete Kozma on a called third strike before Descalso bounced one up the middle for his first pinch-hit RBIs of the season. Crow, who starred at Missouri, allowed five runs while getting just two outs. Royals rookie David Lough had two hits for a two-game total of six and threw out a runner at the plate. Alex Gordon had three hits and Lorenzo Cain and George Kottaras had an RBI apiece. The Busch Stadium field showed little signs of wear

six days after the mound was removed and the infield dirt covered with sod for an exhibition soccer match between English Premier League rivals Chelsea and Manchester City that drew a standing room crowd. Mendoza retired the side in order in the first, a welcome change for the Royals after Molina and Beltran opened with two-run homers the first two games. The Royals traveled Interstate 70 by bus for the second half of the interleague series after difficulties with the team flight. Notes: Mike Moustakas returned for the Royals after missing three games with quad tightness and had two hits. ... Gordon entered with an AL-leading .394 road batting average and is among the leaders with multihit games. .. Beltran saved a run in the seventh with a sliding catch on a drive near the RF line by Cain.

ST. PETERSBURG, Russia (AP) — And now for the goldmedal match. Three months after wrestling got kicked out of the 2020 Olympics, the ancient sport is back in the frame and will compete against baseball-softball and squash for a spot in the games. “We had the opportunity to have a second chance to compete,” international wrestling federation head Nenad Lalovic said Wednesday after the three sports made the IOC short list. “We took the opportunity. We won the first match but there is another one to fight.” Of eight sports competing for a place on the 2020 program, five were eliminated — karate, roller sports, sport climbing, wakeboarding and the Chinese martial art of wushu. The IOC executive board decided to recommend wrestling, squash and baseball-softball to the full IOC assembly for a final decision on Sept. 8 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Only one will get through. “We are competitors. We had seven and now we have two,” said Lalovic, a Serb who has revamped FILA and led the campaign for reinstatement. “Be careful, we are good fighters.” Despite a tradition dating to the Olympics of ancient Greece, wrestling was cut from the list of core sports by the IOC board in February. The decision caused an international uproar and prompted the United States, Russia, Iran and other countries to join forces in an unlikely political alliance to save the sport. Wrestling has gone through a major upheaval since the rejection. Raphael Martinetti resigned as FILA president within days of the decision and was replaced by Lalovic, who won election as full-time leader 10 days ago.

The Cryptoquip is a substitution cipher in which one letter stands for another. If you think that X equals O, it will be O throughout the puzzle.

Think about closing in a portion of a deck or patio. The use of a canopy, netting or even greenery to protect an entertaining space can help minimize weather-related damage to outdoor furniture. Netting will keep a good number of biting insects at bay when the weather is warm and humid. Having a bit of concealment also means you can create a private space that isn’t easily viewed by neighbors or passersby.

Six cholesterol fixes from your kitchen I

f youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re among the one in three North Americans walking around with higher-thanhealthy levels of lousy LDL cholesterol (more than 100 mg/dL or 2.6 mmol/L), hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great way to tamp down that heart, brain, impotence and memory-killing menace today: Stock your kitchen with foods that change your blood fats and help your arteries repel plaque. This plan is right for you even if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re among the one in four people now taking an LDL cholesterollowering statin or have switched to another LDL cholesterol-managing drug due to statin side effects, such as muscle pain, nausea or liver problems. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an issue, one new report says, for a whopping 17 percent of statin users. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get us wrong. Statins are great when a healthy lifestyle alone canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t knock back high LDLs; statinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; benefits include cooling off chronic inflammation that can lead to many health risks. But donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t overlook the power of smart foods to help keep arteries clean as a whistle. A growing mountain of research shows smart foods do way more than cut your LDL levels down to size. They help your body produce larger, less-dangerous LDL parcels and

that protects artery walls from the dings and dents of smaller LDL parcels that kick-start atherosclerosis. Heart-smart eating cools off inflammation, so that your artery walls stop rolling out the red carpet for fat-filled plaque. Some edibles provide building blocks for good HDLs, the nifty â&#x20AC;&#x153;trash trucksâ&#x20AC;? that collect LDLs for disposal. This keeps a lid on high blood pressure and high blood sugar. Grab these to show your heart a little love: Bread spreads with stanols and sterols. Spreading your 100 percent wholegrain toast with a cholesterol-lowering spread containing these plant compounds could reduce LDL levels by an impres-

sive 6 percent to 15 percent. These natural compounds come from the cell walls of plant foods. They have a structure similar to cholesterol, so your body absorbs them instead of cholesterol in your digestive system. Neat trick! Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get some from wheat germ, canola oil, peanuts, walnuts, almonds and Brussels sprouts. But to get a dose proven to lower LDLs significantly, try a fortified bread spread. Two servings give you the recommended 1.3 g to 2 g a day. Oats, beans, pears and more. One type of fiber in these and other foods becomes a slippery gel in your digestive system â&#x20AC;&#x201D;â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Blob that ate LDLsâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and mops up bad cholesterol, ushering it out of your body. This can lower LDL levels by 2 percent to 4 percent, enough to reduce heart-attack risk by twice that much. Aim for up to 10 g a day of soluble fiber (one of two kinds in fruits and veggies -- the other is insoluble), the amount in 2 teaspoons of psyllium powder (if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re taking it, spread it throughout your day) or from 1 cup of black beans, four apricots and 1 cup of cooked asparagus. The odd omegas â&#x20AC;&#x201D; 3, 7 and 9. Healthy, purified omega-7 fatty acids (found in supplements) and omega-9s (found in olive and canola oil) squelch

heart-threatening LDL cholesterol and triglycerides and boost ticker-friendly HDLs. Mike (heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the older of us) takes 420 mg of purified omega-7s along with what we both take daily: 900 mg of DHA (the most powerful omega-3 fatty acid, also proven to protect hearts). Fatty fish like salmon boost your omega-3 levels, too. Walnuts, pecans and sunflower seeds. A small handful a day delivers heart-healthy fats and LDL-fighting phytosterols. Pairing them with oatmeal and soymilk in a diet low in saturated fat (full-fat milk, cheese, ice cream and fatty meats boost LDLs) can lower cholesterol 13 percent. Green, yellow and red veggies. Red types (tomato sauce, watermelon) contain lutein, which blocks oxidization of LDLs, a process that leads to artery clogging. Peas, green beans, corn, broccoli, carrots and other green and yellow-hued veggies can reduce plaque buildup by a whopping 38 percent. Fill half your plate with colorful produce at every meal. Delicious, dark chocolate and cocoa. Cocoa puts the brakes on inflammation. For full benefits, have an ounce of extra-dark chocolate (70 percent cocoa or higher) a few times a week.

Q: My dad is 54 and just had a stroke! Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m turning 30 and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want that to happen to me. What exactly causes a stroke and how can I stay healthy? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Kathy P., Little Rock, Ark. A: Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re smart to get in front of this problem. These days, when 20 percent of strokes hit folks younger than 55, everyone needs to get on board with stroke prevention. Fortunately, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot you can do to protect yourself. Stroke facts: There are three types of strokes. Ischemic stroke accounts for 87 percent of all events; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s caused by a blockage from a clot or plaque in a vessel that supplies blood to the

every year since,â&#x20AC;? he said. Over the course of time, producers have gained more of a knowledge of what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re producing. Going from the Live Show, then to the Carcass Show used to be more of a guess, Hands said, referring to two of the signature industry events with Beef Empire Days. The animal is first judged live by its exterior on what kind of meat it will produce. Judges then examine the carcass of the animal to gauge their predictions and grade the quality of the meat. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cattle feeders know what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re producing. Over these 45-50 years, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve become very well educated,â&#x20AC;? he said. Rick Hibler, cattle foreman at Beefland, has a different perspective of the Live Show. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In high school, I was in vo-ag and we had to set up pens for the first one. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve helped put on the show ever since, on the working side of it. Always have been,â&#x20AC;? he said. Hibler said the Live Show has changed over the years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been on horseback for 30 years now â&#x20AC;&#x201D; maybe longer, closer to 35-40,â&#x20AC;? he said. During the early years, Hibler would work his horse to cut cattle out to be judged. The cattle would be kept between two horses for the crowd to judge. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We would run it down the alley, and there would be a horse between the two pens. Cowboys on both ends would work the cattle,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now, they try to be easy and work them more gentle. A lot has changed over the years,â&#x20AC;? he said.

Area residents fill the south end of Stevens Park to line up for barbecued beef during the 2012 Beef Empire Days Chuckwagons in the Park. The number of animals in the Live Show also has changed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We started with 13 or something that first year. Then it got back up to like 500 or 600. Now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s back down to 200-300 again. The numbers have grown and then declined again,â&#x20AC;? he said. Hibler said he likes his role in Beef Empire Days. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My part is just sitting there in the back, bringing back the animals,â&#x20AC;? he said. Hands said Beef Empire Days is a great way to celebrate the stretch of the industry over many occupations, including producer, packer, feedlot worker, pharmaceutical, nutrition, technology and more. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The industry today just goes on and on,â&#x20AC;? he said. The reach of the industry and the industryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strong presence in southwest Kansas heavily impacts the economy, Hands said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is just the celebration of the beef industry

and ag production here in the Great Plains. It has such an economic impact here. Regardless of your occupation, you live here because of this industry,â&#x20AC;? he said. For Hands, the best part of the celebration is still showcasing the animal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I still really enjoy the live and carcass show that we continue to participate in. I think that goes back to my childhood days of 4-H, high school days of FFA and college days of judging, and because Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a producer,â&#x20AC;? he said. Hands also enjoys the food events, including the chuckwagons in the park and the cattle crawl. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And the barbecue station that is going to take place. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be a lot of fun. I hope the events grow, and we continue to get a lot of people involved. I think those kinds of feeds are great â&#x20AC;&#x201D; enjoying the flavor and the taste of beef while celebrating the industry,â&#x20AC;? he said. Brad Nading/Telegram

Livestock contests among Beef Empire Days centerpieces By SCOTT AUST

Some of the best livestock provided by area feedyards will compete for prizes and bragging rights during Tuesday’s Beef Empire Days Live Show at the Finney County Fairgrounds, and on June 7 at the Carcass Show at Tyson Fresh Meats. Kurt Snyder, Live Show chairman, has helped with the Live Show since 1989. Area feedyards take pride in their cattle, which will make it difficult for the show judges to make a decision about which animal draws top honors. “There ain’t gonna be a bad calf standing there,” Snyder said. “People like me, who have been in the industry so many years, are picking these cattle. It’s a tough show. We have 50,000 head, and out of that, we’re going to bring our top five. And we’re not the only feedyard that does that. You’re looking at the best of the best coming to this live show.” The goal of the live and carcass shows is to emphasize the economic aspects of commercial cattle feeding and the beef industry to this area. All participating cattle must come from yards that are sponsors of Beef Empire Days. Cattle placing in the live and carcass shows are selected to meet the needs of the entire beef industry from the producer to the consumer. All cattle entered will be allowed to compete, but those most closely meeting the standards of the industry will have the advantage. One change this year is the timing of the Live Show. Historically, it has been held at the beginning of Beef Empire Days. This year, it was moved to the middle of the 10-day celebration, probably to have the shows closer to the rodeo, according to Snyder. “Moving it around this way makes it a little more friendly for everybody,” he said. “It’s not a real atten-

Live Show Judge Dr. Bob Kropp, an internationally known beef cattle judge, will be sorting all

entries upon arrival at the fairgrounds, and the top placing steers and heifers

will be judged during the grandstand show at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday.

will range from 750 to 1,000 pounds for steers and heifers. Ribeye area for this weight carcass should be in the 13- to 16square-inch range. Ideal back fat thickness on both steer and heifer carcasses will range from 0.28 to 0.35 inches. Cattle grading high select or better will be allowed to place in the Carcass Show, and average choice or better cattle will be awarded a bonus. “You don’t want a carcass that’s too big that’s going to throw a great big ribeye because the average person doesn’t want a huge ribeye,” Snyder said. “But they don’t want a small one, either. So the judge is kind of guessing what a good carcass weight it’s going to have. Then you look at the grade it’s going to bring in, whether it’s prime or choice or select.” The Carcass Show begins at 2 p.m. Friday at Tyson Fresh Meats. Dr. Terry A. Houser, a Nebraska native and member of the Kansas State University Animal Science faculty in the area of meat science, is this year’s judge for the Carcass Show. Snyder said the goal of entrants is to try to place animals highly in both the live judging and carcass judging shows. Winners will be recognized at an awards banquet at 5:30 p.m. Saturday at the Clarion Inn Ballroom. At Tuesday’s Live Show, the public can try to match their cattle judging skills with the judge by participating in the Public Pick 5. Each person picks five head during the live steer show that they believe will be the top placers in the Beef Empire Days index during the Carcass Show. The cost is $20 per person to enter. Winners of the men’s and women’s division will get $500 cash. The youth division winner will get a duffle bag. Snyder said this year is the second year for the Pick 5 event. “It’s a good way to get the

There are a lot of guys that sit up there in the grandstand and say, ‘Aw, that judge don’t know (anything).’ That’s kind of how this got started. Some who think they know more than the judge does,” Snyder said. Other beef industry-related events during Beef Empire Days include the MRHA Ranch Horse competition and Ranch Rodeo on Saturday at the Finney County Fairgrounds and the Cattle Working Contest June 6 at Finney County Feedyard. The Ranch Horse competition, scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. Saturday at the Finney County Fairgrounds, features cowboys and their ability to handle and train horses. The competition is

a qualifier for the MHRA finals in Cherokee, Okla. The horse and rider will be judged on dry work, cow work and roping. The competition will feature four divisions: open, junior horse, intermediate and novice. For entry information, contact Dwight Bilyk at (918) 349-2325 or The Ranch Rodeo, scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. at the fairgrounds, includes events in which traditional working cowboys compete and demonstrate skills used in everyday cattle operations. Events will include combinations of roping, horsemanship and groundwork skills. Events are calf branding, team doctoring, double mugging, trailer loading and team penning.

Similar to some of the earlier celebrations in its 45-year history, Beef Empire Days 2013 has been made to fit into a 10-day span. But while it may be a shorter span than some of its recent predecessors, this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s celebration

will be full of events for children, adults and families, according to Deann Gillen-Lehman, Beef Empire Days executive director. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We put it back to all one week. It was spread to so many days,â&#x20AC;? Gillen-Lehman said of the decision to scale back from what had become a nearly two-week celebration to this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 10-day span, which begins Friday and

runs through June 9. By putting the events closer together, Gillen-Lehman said she hopes more people will stay throughout the celebration. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are starting out with some different events. But weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still ending with the parade being our big event. We just want people to be able to catch them all,â&#x20AC;? she said.

This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Beef Empire Days theme is BEEF ... The Taste of Tradition. Entertainment events during the week will feature rock bands, country bands, Christian bands, municipal bands, a string instrument workshop, food events, sporting events, childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s See Entertainment, Page B8

BBQ Challenge among new events this year.

There are various prizes being awarded for top finishers in each division. The first-place finishers in the corporate division for brisket, beef ribs and beef tri-tips win weather banners and a traveling trophy. For the backyard division, the grand champion team will win $750, the reserve team will win $250 and then for each of the three meat categories, first-, second- and third-place winners will be awarded $400, $200 and $100, respectively. Teams may start arriving at 4 p.m. Friday and must attend the mandatory cooks’ meeting being held at 7 p.m. Friday at the Finney County Fairgrounds. The judging will take place


This year, Beef Empire Days has added events that aim to encourage community involvement and to educate people about beef. One such event is the Battle of the Beef BBQ Challenge, taking place Friday and Saturday at the Finney County Fairgrounds. “That’s what this day is about. We’re trying to see if we can get more community involvement and maybe do some education while we’re at it,” said Carlie Rooney, BED board member. Beef Empire Days Executive Director Deann Gillen-Lehman said the event is also less about competition and more about having fun. “We’ve been kicking it around to go back to educate and try to promote beef. We used to have, years ago, a big barbecue contest down in Stevens Park. It was huge. There were company and corporate teams, as well as individual teams. Stevens Park used to be full with barbecuers, and so that’s what we’re trying to get back to — make it a fun-filled weekend,” GillenLehman said. “It’s not a competitive barbecue. It is the backyard/dad barbecue, so we’ve kind of been stressing that. It’s not super competitive. It’s just, ‘Come out and try your hand at cooking a brisket, tri-tip and ribs, just for fun.’” Rooney said they are hoping to get around 20 teams signed up for the challenge. The entry fee for the backyard competition is $100, which will go toward the purchase of the three types of meats — beef tri-tip, beef ribs and brisket — being provided by Tyson Fresh Meats and that the contestants will begin preparing on Friday. Absolutely no outside meat will be allowed for use in the competition. Garnish is allowed and optional, but limited to green lettuce, curly parsley and flat leaf parsley. “That just keeps all of the boxes on the same playing field,” Rooney said. “We don’t want any marking or any other stuff in the box that might identify one team or separate one team from another.” All meat must reach a minimum internal temperature of 140 degrees Fahrenheit. Teams are required to place a minimum of four pieces of meat in each Styrofoam box they receive for judging. The samples will be judged on appearance, taste and tenderness. Gillen-Lehman said Travis Clark, who has

Saturday. The beef tri-tip turn-in is at 1 p.m., the beef ribs turn-in is at 1:30 p.m. and the brisket turn-in is at 2 p.m. For more rules about the contest, visit and click on schedule of events, or call Clark at (620) 290-4133.

He also will be doing demonstrations on how to prepare brisket. Rooney said that the judges include community members, KCBS certified judges and local celebrity

judges. The judges will be rotated. “We’ll have a different table for each division, so they’ll try every team’s meat but not on all three categories, so that team doesn’t go to that same judge every time. So we’re trying to level the playing field,” Rooney said.

The contest is going to be divided into backyard teams and corporate teams. The entry fee for corporate teams is $200. “In our corporate division, we’re just trying to get some of the businesses in town to kind of compete against each other,” Rooney said.

Once again, the Anchor K group of bulls and horses is among the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best. Consider that their top bull, Bad Habit, has yet to be ridden in approximately 50 attempts, and that he was so tough that the Dodge National Circuit Finals in Oklahoma City asked the Korkows to leave Bad Habit at home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a mean bull, but so far nobody has figured out how to stay on him,â&#x20AC;? said T.J., the third generation Korkow to handle the draw for riders at rodeos. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We think heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gonna be a candidate for PRCA Bull of the Year. So, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re pretty excited about him.â&#x20AC;? Other top young bulls in the Anchor K group include Snake, Blow Hole, Luciferâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Leap and Secret Stash. On the horse side of the stock, Korkow said he had

four saddle broncs that were chosen for the 2012 National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas. Among that group is Vanilla Twist, who was voted as the 2010 â&#x20AC;&#x153;High Marked Broncâ&#x20AC;? at the prestigious Cheyenne (Wyo.) Frontier Days Bronc Futurity. Other saddle broncs include Wasabi, River Rat, Rhubarb and Paint Chip. On the bareback list, Korkow mentioned Buggerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pet, the 2009 Bareback Horse of the Year in the Badlands Circuit; Inky, Flaxy Lady, Flash, Stat

Sheet, Joker Poker, Arabella and Mean Jean, the horse that scored 87 points for the 2012 winner at the BED. Approximately 500 contestants had registered by the third week of May for the three-day event, with contestants entered for saddle bronc, bareback bronc, tie-down roping, bull riding, team roping and womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s barrel racing. There will be possible more entries following the re-entry deadline, set for Friday.

More than $120,000 in prize money was awarded at the 2012 event, and the purse is expected to be in the same range for 2013. BED Rodeo President Mike Ketterling said several changes for this year will enhance the overall experience for contestants, volunteers and fans. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got one less day of slack, which will help our volunteers a lot,â&#x20AC;? Ketterling said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Eliminating the Wednesday slack and making Thursday about five to six hours just relieves a lot of stress.â&#x20AC;? The BED Rodeo committee voted after last year to eliminate steer roping, which was the dominant event in the Wednesday slack, which often lasted from early Wednesday morning to early the same evening. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had a few com-

plaints from the contestants there, but we just felt like this was in our best interest,â&#x20AC;? Ketterling said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was costing us more money than what we felt we wanted to spend, and we can put that elsewhere.â&#x20AC;? Ketterling said that Muttinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Bustinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and a Boot Scramble will be part of the three-evening performance for kids ages 11 and younger. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The boot scramble will be where kids have their boots placed in the middle of the arena. There is a starting line near the arena fence and then the kids have to race, find their boots, and then run back to the finish line. The winners will receive prizes all three nights. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to do as much as we can to involve young See PRCA, Page B13

There will be a few changes when the 2013 Beef Empire Days PRCA Rodeo gets under way on June 6 at the Finney County Fairgrounds Arena. There will be one less day of competition, with the slack portion being moved to 9 a.m. Thursday, June 6. Team roping, barrel racing and womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s breakaway roping will be on the agenda for the Thursday day schedule, which is free to the public. The opening night of the PRCA event is scheduled to get under way at 7 p.m. the same day, where Family Night will be celebrated. The rodeo continues on Friday and Saturday with 7 p.m. starts. On Friday, the BED event will sponsor the Breast Cancer Awareness Night with its annual â&#x20AC;&#x153;Are You Tough Enough to Wear Pink?â&#x20AC;? event. All in attendance are encouraged to wear something pink to honor those who battle cancer. On Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s closing night, it will be Military Appreciation Night, honoring our nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s veterans and active military personnel. Another new look will actually be a new voice. After having Mike Mathis as the announcer for the BED event for 18 years, the Texan is staying in his home state this time around, and his replacement is another veteran PRCA announcer, Andy Stewart, a four-time top five nominee for PRCA announcer of the year. Stewart, who resides in Collinston, La., has twice been the announcer for the Southeast Circuit finals. He was the announcer for the Ram National Circuit Finals in 2006, and on multiple occasions served as the announcer for the World Bronc Futurity. The veteran announcer also has served as host of the award-winning PRCA coverage for the Outdoor Channel and Fox Sports. He enjoys playing the guitar and singing, and has been a professional duck hunting guide for 16 years. Married for 22 years, Stewart and his wife, Shelley, have two children, Kash, 19, and Shaye, 17. For the 11th consecutive year, Korkow Rodeos of the Anchor K Ranch of Pierre, S.D., will be providing the bulls, saddle broncs and bareback broncs for the competition in those three events. The Korkows have raised rodeo stock for three generations. Since 1959, they are only one of three stock contractors to have animals selected to be ridden at the National Finals Rodeo. Jim and his son, T.J., the second and third generation family members, oversee hundreds of bulls and horses in their stock.

kids,â&#x20AC;? Ketterling said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking forward to seeing how these work.â&#x20AC;? Ketterling said the committee was pleased with the number of early entrants, nearly staying at the same level as in the past, but without the steer ropers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really up in the barrel racing entries,â&#x20AC;? Ketterling said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got nearly 100 entries in the barrels, and we normally have about 50, so weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really pleased with that.â&#x20AC;? In the 27-year history of the BED PRCA Rodeo, numerous world champions and No. 1-ranked cowboys and womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s barrel racers have graced the arena with their presence. Ketterling credits the cowboysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; familiarity and respect for the Korkow stock for attracting some of the best in the business. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They (Korkow Rodeos) bring in stock that they take to the NFR,â&#x20AC;? said Ketterling. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t argue with that. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a number of other rodeos around at the same dates and we thought that might affect our entries, but we havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t had a drop-off. We think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got some of the top ones coming and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always exciting for rodeo fans to see.â&#x20AC;? This year will be no exception. Trevor Brazile of Decatur, Texas, who won his 10th all-around world championship in 2012 with just less than $300,000 in earnings, is back once again. To date, Brazile has won 17 total world championships and is now within one of the all-time record for world titles. He is once again ranked No. 1 in the all-around with 2013 earnings of $47,938, and is ranked No. 6 in calf roping. His wife, Shada, also returns for the womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s barrel racing, where she placed second at the Beef Empire Days event a year ago. She had led until the final night of competition, and she has established herself as one of the premier barrel racers, now ranked No. 7 in the world with $28,828 in earnings as of May 21. No. 1-ranked calf roper Sterling Smith of Stephenville, Texas, is among the entrants, and he will be challenged by Brazile and two other top 10-ranked ropers â&#x20AC;&#x201D; No. 4 Tyson Durfey of Colbert, Wash., and No. 9 EJ Roberts, also of Stephenville. In team roping, there are three top 10-ranked headers and four heelers. At the top of those lists are No. 1 header Kaleb Driggers of Albany, Ga., and top-ranked heeler Travis Graves of Jay, Okla. Cort Scheer of Elsmere, Neb., enters as the highest ranked saddle bronc rider at No. 3, along with No. 8 Cole Elshere of Faith, Neb., and No. 9 Troy Crowser of Whitewood, S.D. In bareback riding, the group of five top 20 riders includes No. 4 Wes Stevenson of Lubbock, Texas, No. 9 Cole Echols of Elm Grove, La., and No. 10 Cooper Davis of Jasper, Texas.
