Scale rules lacking Editor’s note: State inspectors have rejected dozens of large scales in the past year but handed out few penalties to the private companies that service those scales, despite promising a “new day” of scale regulation in November. This is the first in a three-part series of stories by The Topeka Capital-Journal examining the state’s scale issues.

By ANDY MARSO

The Topeka-Capital Journal

Department of Agriculture officials promised “a new day” of weights and measures enforcement in December, after a scale service company complained that the department was giving a free pass to competitors who do shoddy work. But documents obtained through an open records request show the department rejecting dozens of scales used to weigh millions of dolT o d a y : lars in Renewed effort on grain, regulation brings livestock few penalties. and nonTuesday: The a g riculmeasure of one t u r a l scale company — g o o d s an in-depth look w h i l e at the one scale handing service company out few the state has fined penalin the past year. ties. We d n e s d a y : T h e Scale problems state’s resurface almost t h r e e 20 years after inspecaudit. t o r s rejected nearly three-fourths of the heavy-capacity scales they examined between July and February, and more than half of the private scale technicians who took the state’s licensing exam in March failed it. Department officials could name one fine — for $1,000 — handed down in that period and said no licenses have been pulled. The department’s Division of Weights and Measures has jurisdiction over thousands of scales used to weigh commercial goods like scrap metal, recyclables and agricultural commodities. Heavy capacity agricultural scales underpin the Kansas farm economy, and the cost of inaccurate measurements factor into every transaction made by farmers, ranchers, grocers and, ultimately, consumers. “In the state of Kansas, there would be millions of dollars (in products weighed),” said former Agriculture Secretary Adrian Polansky, who now works for the U.S. Department of Agriculture. “One semi-load of wheat maybe would have 900 bushels; 900 bushels times say $7 (per bushel) and there’s thousands of semi-trucks that are weighed in Kansas.”

The tradition continues By BECKY MALEWITZ

Gabriela Hernandez remembers coming to the Beef Empire Days Parade with her mother when she was a child. Now, she watches the parade along Main Street with her children and grandchildren. “I’m enjoying it with my kids,” she said pointing out a group of youngsters standing along the parade route clutching onto the bags to collect free candy. “They really enjoy it.” Hernandez’s daughter, Ashley Trevizo, now a mother herself, says the best part of the parade is watching her kids having fun. “My son really enjoys it. He’s 3, so he likes all these cops, the rodeo, the horses, stuff like that,” she said. Saturday’s parade featured 60 entries making it smaller than past processions, but according to Beef Empire Days Executive Director Deann Gillen-Lehman, this year’s entries did an excellent job of incorporating the 2013 BED theme “Beef … The Taste of Tradition.” Judi Belknap, a Garden City native who grew up riding horses in the parade, now watches from a spot at the start of the route not far from her home. “I think it and the Christmas parade are the greatest parades we have,” she said as the first few entries came up Main Street. As the parade ends, it’s time for Patrick Lopez’s favorite BED tradition to start — Chukwagons in the Park. Lopez travels from his home in Dodge City each year to visit family in Garden City and enjoy the BED festivities. “Well, I came for the parade, too, but I really came for this,” Lopez said pointing to the tables filling up with samples of beef. “I love beef, so that’s why I’m here. I live in Dodge City, but I don’t miss Beef Empire Days, especially this. We have a cookout like this in Dodge, but I don’t think it’s nearly as good as this.” According to Chuckwagons in the Park Chairperson Brian Price, who also manages Brookover Feed Yard, the donated meat this year was the teres major muscle, which is the shoulder muscle. “It’s not a very expensive cut of meat, but our goal is to teach

You can buy other cuts of meat, and if you cook it properly, it can be as good as expensive pieces of meat,” Price said. “The industry is trying to make it so that people understand beef’s affordable. The more we can do to educate the public that they can still find cuts of meat and still use them for their families and make it so people can continue to enjoy our beef. And learning more about beef is exactly what has Lopez looking forward to BED every year. “As a consumer, I like my beef,” said Lopez. “When you come here, you get a chance to try (different cuts of meat) and think, ‘hey that’s pretty good flank steak, that’s pretty good round roast, or whatever it is that they are cooking.’ It allows you to break out of your old habits and try something different because if you love beef like I do you can still have your favorites, like I love ribeyes, I love grilled burgers at the same time you try something different and think, ‘hey, I’ll cook that next time.’”

Shannon McNeill may be in her first year as manager at The Big Pool, but she has been a familiar face to swimmers for seven summers. “All the summers start running together being here so long,” McNeill said looking over at the pool teeming with swimmers enjoying the cool water and sunshine under the watchful eye of lifeguards. “It’s where I am all summer, every summer. It’s more than just sitting back tanning; everybody does a good job every day.” The longtime swimmer started working at the pool as a lifeguard at the age of 16, and as the years passed, McNeill worked her way up to head lifeguard, assistant manager and now manager.

every swim season? “It’s a fun job working with other lifeguards and the patrons and to kind of see the kids grow up when you’ve worked here quite awhile. The kids that come every day, you get to know them year after year,” McNeill said. McNeill started her swim career when she was 8 years old as part of the Seahawks swim team. The 2009 Garden City High School graduate swam through high school for the Buffs and for two years in college at University of Nebraska at Kearney. “I’ve been around water all the time, so I would come home (from school) and have a two or three week break and start in on summer swim,” she said.

Scales: Despite new regulations, scales don’t add up

Builders Choice and Cargill Ag Horizons rail yard all failed to make the state’s grade for accuracy. There may be more, because the state only inspects a fraction of Kansas’ scales itself. Since 1985, Kansas’ agriculture department has had a unique, semi-privatized scale regulation system, which it touts on its website. The weights and measures division licenses technicians from private companies to repair, install and certify scales as ready for commercial use. Those companies send records to the state, Senior center which employs a small number pinochle of inspectors to randomly “spotcheck” the private technicians’ work.

Region & State By the numbers 72: Heavy-capacity scales examined by state inspectors from July 2012 to February 2013 19: Scales approved 34: Scales rejected for “tolerance” (didn’t weigh accurately enough for state standards) 16: Scales rejected for “specs” (didn’t meet state specifications) 3: Scales rejected for other reasons (not legal for trade or hadn’t been inspected in previous 365 days) the role of fines in the division’s regulatory duties during a 30minute interview in early May at the agriculture headquarters that also included a department attorney. Tyson repeatedly answered questions about under what circumstances the department would levy fines or suspend licenses by saying the department’s aim is to “work with” scale service companies to ensure compliance. A scale inspection flow chart provided by the state included no provision for penalizing technicians for inaccurate scales. Geiger, in a subsequent email, said it is up to scale owners to make sure technicians are doing the work properly. “It is the scale owners’ responsibility to maintain their scales in tolerance and to have them tested, calibrated and certified pursuant to national industry standards once annually by a scale service company licensed by the weight and measures program,” Geiger said. “If a scale repeatedly tests out of compliance, the weights and measures program works with the scale owner and the service company to determine the cause and bring it back into tolerance. If the scale cannot be repaired, the program works with the scale owner to get it replaced.”

Scale ‘like a slot machine’ Maintaining such scales is technical work, which is why most of the companies that use them contract with service companies to test the scales at least once a year and fix them if they aren’t up to Handbook 44 standards. Those companies — and their customers — then use those scales throughout the year under the assumption they are weighing goods properly. The state’s spot-checks cast doubt on that in some cases. Scales at Frito-Lay, the Ottawa Co-op, Archer Daniels Midland in Copeland and Recycled Materials Relocating in Kansas City, Kan., were each found out of tolerance twice within a six-month period. Chris Kuechenmeister, a corporate spokesman for Frito-Lay, said the scale at the company’s 4236 Kirklawn Ave., location is used to weigh supplies from vendors, like potatoes. “During state inspections of the scale in October 2012 and January 2013, we were notified that select sections of the scale measured outside of the required tolerance range, and we were given 10 days in each situation to address the matter,” Kuechenmeister said via email. “In both instances, we promptly addressed the issues and had the scale re-calibrated within the designated time frame, which was also reported back to the state.” Kuechenmeister didn’t respond to follow-up questions about how the scale was found

Chris Neal/The Capital-Journal

Hammel Scale in Topeka services a grain scale at the Ottawa Co-op that state inspectors found violated their standards for accuracy twice in a five-month period last year. out of tolerance a second time within months of being serviced. The Ottawa Co-op scale was a four-section vehicle scale. Test weights were placed on each section, and the reported weight was allowed to deviate no more than 60 pounds from one section to another. When state inspector Loren Minnich visited the co-op on Sept. 6, 2012, he found a deviation of 80 pounds. “Basically then, your scale becomes kind of like a slot machine,” said Joe Hamilton, the owner of UniBridge Scales in Oklahoma, who brought the complaint about lax regulation to the Agriculture Department. “Did you park in the right spot, or did you park in the wrong spot? Whenever you move, you’re going to have a different number.” Minnich rejected the scale. It was serviced by the co-op’s private contractor, Hammel Scale, and placed back into use. Another state inspector, Keith Lassiter, examined the scale Jan. 23. He found the deviation between sections had grown to 140 pounds — 80 pounds outside the level tolerated. That was due in part to a midspan test that revealed a 100-pound error in a part of the scale between two sections, meaning it was registering less weight than was actually on it — to an extent unacceptable under state and national regulations. Tyson said a number of factors, including weather and use, could have contributed to the scale losing its accuracy in the months between the two state inspections, and the department couldn’t conclude that it was improperly put back into service the first time. “Both scales were placed back within tolerance by a licensed service technician,” Geiger said of the co-op scale and another that inspectors also rejected twice in six months. According to Ottawa Coop General Manager Adrian Derousseau, the service technician was Tim Cates, who works out of Hammel’s Topeka office. Derousseau said Cates told him the scale was “barely out of compliance” and that wind may have been a factor when state inspectors tested it. Derousseau said state inspectors hold scales to a high standard. “They take it so serious,” he said of the spot-checks. He also noted that the 100pound error was found on a midspan and “when you’re weighing a truck that heavy, the weight isn’t even on the mid-span.” Hamilton disagreed, saying a loaded truck would have to be parked very precisely to avoid putting any pressure on the underweighing midspan. “Anybody that’s selling prod-

uct to that place of business in all probability is going to get shorted,” Hamilton said. Farmers near the co-op declined to comment publicly when contacted by telephone. Days later, the Kansas Grain and Feed Association emailed the following advice to members: “Kansas Grain and Feed Association members and farmer customers are being contacted by media regarding their elevator scale inspection reports. If your elevator receives this call, please be aware of your most recent scale inspections and your company’s policy regarding scale compliance. Kansas Department of Agriculture requires annual scale inspections to ensure scale tolerance. KGFA members are committed to transparent, efficient business transactions, including keeping scales in tolerance. “When providing media interviews KGFA encourages members to provide concise, factual statements.”

A new day of testing Rob Hammel, owner of Hammel Scale, said he couldn’t comment on the Ottawa scale and referred questions to Cates, who didn’t return a phone message. Derousseau said the co-op has had a contract with Hammel “forever,” and he has full faith in Cates’ ability. Cates exhibited greater competence than many of his counterparts on the state licensing test given in March. Cates was one of 39 technicians who passed the large-scale portion of the test. The rest of the 85 prospective techs who took that portion failed it. Jim Waggle, owner of WH Scales in Topeka, said in previous years an agriculture official who is no longer with the department essentially went over what was on the licensing test beforehand. That changed this year. “The test this year, it was, ‘You should know. It’s in the handbook,’” said Waggle, whose company was one of the few that had all of its technicians pass. “You have to think more, but probably that’s what we have to do (in the field).” It’s unlikely any of those who failed the test will lose their licenses involuntarily. Tyson said he can’t recall the last time he pulled someone’s license, and those who failed the March test will get unlimited retakes before Fiscal Year 2014, which starts July 1. In the meantime, 38 of the 46 who failed are still licensed for FY 2013 — free to travel throughout Kansas, servicing heavycapacity scales and declaring them fit for commercial use.

Add your comments available on at the end of the online digital devicversion of this editorial at GCTelegram.com/opinion. es. Garden City USD 457 has acknowledged as much in a summer digital book program that’s free of charge for local families. The program matches students’ interests and reading levels to recommended digital books, which may be downloaded onto a computer or mobile device with an Internet connection. Youngsters and their families also can take advantage of good reading programs at their local library. The Finney County Public Library, for example, makes the experience educational and entertaining for all ages by incorporating movies, games and story times into the reading experience. Families also may add to the summer reading effort by taking books along on vacations. Children who see their parents read are more likely to do the same. All such efforts help to combat what’s known as brain drain, the learning losses that occur when students don’t engage in educational activities during the summer. Studies show low-income youth often experience even more of a loss. Good summer programs promise to close the achievement gap between lower- and upper-income students. The challenge is in keeping kids interested in learning in a world in which music on iPods, video games and social networking sites steal their attention. Educators have to be creative in encouraging students to stay on track — to include incorporating those technologies into the learning process. Digital reading programs should help grab and keep students’ attention. Such innovative strategies in place in Garden City public schools and beyond help at a time educators work to stay on the cutting edge of technology available to their pupils. As society changes, the importance of reading a book should continue to receive the high priority worthy of a fundamental tool all students need to succeed. The good news is that whether they’re reading for entertainment or as part of the learning process, youngsters have more choices than ever before in print and digital form.

Bill to allow canines on trains Y

ou might say I have a dog in this fight. He’s tiny. He’s blind. His bark is decidedly unmanly, and his bites, usually in defense against things that can’t be seen, are forgivably innocuous. I am his seeing-eye human. I adopted Ollie from a kill shelter four years ago via friends who visit the shelter weekly and grab whatever is adoptable. Steve and Squeaky Wangensteen are shrewd and devilish people. Their strategy: They invite you to dinner, wine and dine you, and then, while your defenses are down, say, “Oh, look, he loves you so much. Don’t you want to take him home?” Which is to say, I was over-served — and went home with a blind poodle. The Very Fortunate Ollie — named for Olive Street — thus came to join a neighborly menagerie that then included a three-legged cat, Zoe, a gentle mutt named Jake, the pedigreed Miss Maggie next door and yet another Ollie farther down, who is often mistaken for Bo Obama. My Ollie had not been mistreated, but his care had been minimal. He was already 7 and was, as his vet puts it, “genetically challenged.” (We don’t tell Ollie.) His previous family, who dropped him off at the shelter saying they were tired of him, had bought him from a pet shop knowing he was blind. They did teach him the word “no,” which stops him in his tracks and for which I am grateful. Ollie is higher-than-usual maintenance, true enough,

but his blindness is part of his charm. He is fearless precisely because he knows I won’t let him hurt himself. Like a child confident of his mother’s proximity, he knows I’m right there. Except, alas, those times when work takes me away, usually from D.C. to New York via the train, which doesn’t allow canine travelers. Not even a 6.5-pound blind toy poodle. Instead, I hire a sitter, which is expensive and an absurdly unnecessary burden. For reasons that remain mysterious, Amtrak allows only service dogs. This, despite the fact that domestic pets are more than welcome on airplanes for a fee. If small enough, they can be tucked under a seat. Yet Amtrak, with trains naturally noisy and not exactly luxurious, is utterly snooty when it comes to pets. I once spotted a woman with a cuddly canine next to her in the Amtrak “Quiet Car” and asked her secret. Proudly, she whipped out a letter from her psychiatrist. Well, that’s one way. The rest of us are out of luck, but perhaps not for long. With gentleness of heart — and more sanity than we’ve come to expect from Washington — a bipartisan measure could open the way for pet lovers to travel by rail with their canine and feline companions. Four House members have proposed the Pets on Trains Act of 2013 to allow people to travel with their domestic pets. The act would require that Amtrak devote at least one car for passengers with kenneled pets traveling fewer than 750 miles.

The bill’s sponsors have focused primarily on the family and humane concerns, earning the support of the Humane Society of the United States. “My dog, Lily, is part of our family and travels with us to and from California all the time,” Rep. Jeff Denham (R-Calif.), a co-sponsor, said in a press release about the bill. “If I can take her on a plane, why can’t I travel with her on Amtrak, too?” But there’s also an economic benefit. Dogs and cats wouldn’t get a free ride. They’d need tickets, too. Who knows? Perhaps Amtrak could use the extra cash to hire restroom custodians. No self-respecting dog or cat would enter these foul places as they are customarily maintained. But more to the point, prohibiting well-behaved pets in carriers from travel by train makes little sense. We’re not talking about boarding goats and chickens, though I’d take a goat over some of the cellphone yakkers who seem to find themselves so fascinating. Compared to many travelers whose company is far less appealing than a dog’s, Ollie is hardly visible and rarely makes a peep. Any dog or cat causing a ruckus can be forbidden from future travel. This important measure is long overdue. It’s sensible, pro-family, humane, smart business and no one’s bother. It is a bipartisan measure that finally offers an opportunity for humans to be the kind of people our dogs think we are.

Impotent pouting rather than governing R

ep. Michele Bachmann, a Republican from Minnesota, is almost gone for good, but what she represented was part of the inevitable whiplash of American politics, the accident behind the wheel. This does not always happen, but will if any drunken drivers are allowed on the streets. Some applaud Bachmann for backing out before the national media could get in a few more licks and draw a little more blood. She was a very good vehicle for the standby tea-party message. Proof was never important. Self-righteous bluster would do. Then, like beer suds, she could rise to the top because her audience liked the taste of foam as much as others liked good beer. As a woman, she could perhaps justify a stereotype that being an airhead is as open as any other American occupation. She saw enemies everywhere — and routinely sank much lower than colleagues of the same ideological stripe, many of whom can be taken seriously. Let us take a quick tour through some of her most absurd statements. Back in 2008, Bachmann called for the equivalent of a McCarthy-style inquisition: “I wish the American media would take a great look at the views of the people in Congress and find out: Are they pro-America or antiAmerica?” In 2009, she repeated headin-sand denials of climate change: “Carbon dioxide is portrayed as harmful. But there isn’t even one study that can be produced that shows that carbon dioxide is a harmful gas.”

COMMENTARY Stanley Crouch King Features Syndicate

In 2011, she was bold enough to claim that the Founding Fathers, many of whom were slave owners, fought to eradicate slavery: “The very founders that wrote those documents worked tirelessly until slavery was no more in the United States.” In 2001, she said something that would make even the most amateur economist laugh: “If we took away the minimum wage — if conceivably it was gone — we could potentially virtually wipe out unemployment completely.” And that is just a tiny fraction of her mindless thinking, which obsessed about the threat from male and female homosexuals, Muslims, Islam, you name it. She stood, and stands, on a shrinking piece of earth — pretending that the ongoing rejection of the tea-party-dominated GOP is an example of those in Washington showing their integrity. The Bachmanns of the world have great freedom to say what they wish, for they have no responsibility other than to bring heat to their followers. They burn trees without ever planting any. For those who like this style of entertainment, have no fear: Bachmann leaves plenty of heirs in Congress. One is on the Senate side, Ted Cruz of Texas. He blusters and brags like the best — or worst — of them. Though Cruz has been

talked up as a possible GOP standard-bearer in 2016, he’ll have serious trouble. Because rather than offer any serious alternative policies, Cruz would rather play for the applause. President Ronald Reagan, not mindlessly conservative but instead believing in governing, would not have taken this. His corpse might spin inside its coffin were the Gone Gipper to hear Cruz claim that he and his far-right brethren are “the children of Ronald Reagan.” I thought many years ago that then-Gen. Colin Powell and New Jersey Gov. Christine Todd Whitman, sensible moderates both, might revolutionize the game for the Republicans. That almost seemed possible during the Clinton years. Instead, a fairly sensible Republican senator named Bob Dole ran. Even he now believes the current party needs repair. Asked whether he’d be welcomed at today’s elephant feast, Dole said: “I doubt it. Reagan wouldn’t have made it, certainly Nixon wouldn’t have made it, because he had ideas. We might have made it, but I doubt it.” Bachmann symbolizes the trouble that continues to plague our national politics. It’s impotent pouting rather than governing, bomb-throwing rather than sensibly compromising. It reminds me of an old song performed by Frank Sinatra and others, titled “All or Nothing at All.” But it is being rendered as a blues from the backwater.

n June 2, in the early morning hours, state lawmakers temporarily closed the books on the financial debacle created one year ago when Gov. Sam Brownback signed a seriously flawed bill that dramatically cut state income taxes. The machinations of Republican leaders to clean up the mess during the 99-day legislative session will play heavily in the re-election campaigns of Brownback and for 125 Kansas House seats in August and November of 2014. The clean-up required lawmakers to increase taxes by $2.1 billion over the next five years to pay for the elimination of income taxes on most businesses in addition to rate reductions for other income taxpayers. To pay for these tax cuts that primarily benefit higher-income Kansans, sales taxpayers will bear a $1.1 billion increase, and income taxpayers will see a $975 million increase through reduced deductions. Beyond shifting the state and local tax burden onto lower-income Kansans, Republican leaders ignored the pleas of those who resisted placing services for family members with intellectual and developmental disabilities in the hands of out-of-state insurance corporations. Nor did they seriously consider expanding Medicaid to cover 200,000 lowincome adults and children at minimal cost to the state. On the budget side, core services are being pared, highway funds are being raided, onetime fee funds are being diverted and debt is being increased to pay for Brownback’s perilous tax experiment. Even with these cutbacks and tax increases of $2.1 billion over the next five years, state government will be on an unsustainable course, steadily depleting its balances to the point of being in the red at the end of the period. Brownback and legislative leaders got most of what they wanted and do deserve credit for bringing their self-imposed gridlock to a close. Surprisingly, they turned to moderate House Republicans for support on the tax bill and gave assurances that moderates would not be targeted in 2014, as they were in 2010 and 2012. Even so, most lawmakers were holding their noses while voting for tax increases coupled with budget cuts. Cracks also appeared in the rock solid, “small government” coalition of Brownback, the Kansas Chamber and Americans for Prosperity. While Brownback was pulling out all the stops by cajoling lawmakers to extend the temporary sales tax, AFP was mobilizing its network with a media blitz that opposed the extension and called for deeper cuts in state spending. At the same time Chamber officials departed from their libertarian script, quietly telling moderates not to worry about being targeted in 2014 for voting for tax increases. If moderate Republican legislators plan to rely on the assurances of Brownback and the Chamber in their 2014 campaigns, they may want to recall what happened to their state senate counterparts in 2012 and run for other cover. House moderates helped to deny two crown jewels highly treasured by the libertarian coalition, that is, constitutional amendments on school finance and court appointments. Coalition members can be expected to patch over their differences, conduct a full-court press on these measures during the 2014 legislative session and target anyone who stands in their way. Brownback continues to travel across the country touting his radical red-state model of governance. Based on the governor’s low approval ratings, however, Kansans remain highly skeptical of his claims. By moving Kansas even further toward a highly regressive tax structure and diminished state services, the governor and his allies now face a more daunting task of convincing Kansans the state is on the right track.

Report: NSA contract worker is surveillance source

He told the Post that he would “ask for asylum from any countries that believe in free speech and oppose the victimization of global privacy� in an interview from Hong Kong, where he is staying. “I’m not going to hide,� Snowden told the Post. “Allowing the U.S. government to intimidate its people with threats of retaliation for revealing wrongdoing is contrary to the public interest.� The Post declined to elaborate on its reporting about Snowden. The spokesman for the Director of National Intelligence, Shawn Turner, said intelligence officials are “currently reviewing the damage that has been done by these recent disclosures,� adding that “Any person who has a security clearance knows that he or she has an obligation to protect classified information and abide by the law.� He referred further comment to the Justice Department. “The Department of Justice is in the initial stages of an investigation into the unauthorized disclosure of classified information by an individual with authorized access,� said Nanda Chitre, Justice Department spokeswoman. “Consistent with longstanding department policy and procedure and in order to protect the integrity of the investigation, we must decline further comment.� In a statement, Booz Allen confirmed that Snowden “has been an employee of our firm for less than 3 months, assigned to a team in

Hawaii.� The statement said if the news reports of what he has leaked prove accurate, “this action represents a grave violation of the code of conduct,� and the company promised to work closely with authorities on the investigation. Director of National Intelligence James Clapper has decried the revelation of the intelligence-gathering programs as reckless and said it has done “huge, grave damage.� In recent days, he took the rare step of declassifying some details about them to respond to media reports about counterterrorism techniques employed by the government. Snowden told The Guardian that he lacked a high school diploma and enlisted in the U.S. Army until he was discharged because of an injury, and later worked as a security guard with the NSA. He later went to work for the CIA as an information technology employee and by 2007 was stationed in Geneva, Switzerland, where he had access to classified documents. During that time, he considered going public about the nation’s secretive programs but told the newspaper he decided against it, because he did not want to put anyone in danger and he hoped Obama’s election would curtail some of the clandestine programs. He said he was disappointed that Obama did not rein in the surveillance programs. “Much of what I saw in Geneva really disillusioned me about how my government functions and what its impact is in the world,�

Our swim lessons are two weeks long, so you can see the progression where they started; whether they don’t want to get their head in the water at first or blow bubbles, to at the end where they are like little fish,� McNeill said. She added that her favorite part is, “seeing them get better where they are just more comfortable with the water and actually when they are older and learning the different strokes and swimming farther distances.�

it clear he did this to spur debate. The government could also make an argument that the NSA leaks have aided the enemy — as military prosecutors have claimed against Army Pvt. Bradley Manning, who faces life in prison under military law if convicted for releasing a trove of classified documents through Wikileaks. “They could say the revelation of the (NSA) programs could instruct people to change tactics,� Zaid said. But even under the lesser charges of simply revealing classified information, “you are talking potentially decades in jail, loss of his employment and his security clearance.� Officials said the revelations were dangerous and irresponsible. House intelligence committee member Peter King, R-NY, called for Snowden to be “extradited from Hong Kong immediately...and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law,� in an interview with The Associated Press Sunday. “I believe the leaker has done extreme damage to the U.S. and to our intelligence operations,� King said, by alerting al-Qaida to U.S. surveillance, and by spooking U.S. service providers who now might fight sharing data in future with the U.S. government, now that the system has been made public. King added that intelligence and law enforcement professionals he’d spoken to since the news broke were also concerned that Snowden might be taken into custody by Chinese intelligence agents and questioned about CIA and NSA spies and policies. “To be a whistleblower, there would have to be a pattern of him filing complaints through appropriate channels to his supervisors,� said Ambassador John Negroponte, the first director of national intelligence, in an interview with the AP Sunday. “For me, it’s just an outright case of betrayal of confidences and a violation of his nondisclosure agreement.� President Barack Obama, Clapper and others have said the programs are authorized by Congress and subject to strict supervision of a secret court. “It’s important to recognize that you can’t have 100 percent security and also then have 100 percent privacy and zero inconvenience,� Obama said. “We’re going to have to make some choices as a society.�

WASHINGTON (AP) — A 29-year-old contractor who claims to have worked at the National Security Agency and the CIA allowed himself to be revealed Sunday as the source of disclosures about the U.S. government’s secret surveillance programs, risking prosecution by the U.S. government. The leaks have reopened the post-Sept. 11 debate about privacy concerns versus heightened measure to protect against terrorist attacks, and led the NSA to ask the Justice Department to conduct a criminal investigation into the leaks. The Guardian, the first paper to disclose the documents, said it was publishing the identity of Edward Snowden, a former technical assistant for the CIA and current employee of defense contractor Booz Allen Hamilton, at his own request. “My sole motive is to inform the public as to that which is done in their name and that which is done against them,� Snowden told the newspaper. Stories in The Guardian and The Washington Post published over the last week revealed two surveillance programs, and both published interviews with Snowden on Sunday. One of them is a phone records monitoring program in which the NSA gathers hundreds of millions of U.S. phone records each day, creating a database through which it can learn whether terror suspects have been in contact with people in the U.S. The Obama administration says the NSA program does not listen to actual conversations. Separately, an Internet scouring program, codenamed PRISM, allows the NSA and FBI to tap directly into nine U.S. Internet companies to gather all Internet usage — audio, video, photographs, emails and searches. The effort is designed to detect suspicious behavior that begins overseas. Snowden said claims the programs are secure are not true. “Any analyst at any time can target anyone. Any selector. Anywhere. Where those communications will be picked up depends on the range of those sensor networks and the authority that that analyst is empowered with,� Snowden said, in accompanying video on the Guardian’s website. “Not all analysts have the power to target anything. But I, sitting at my desk, had the authority to wiretap anyone, from you or your accountant to a federal judge to even the president if I had a personal email.�

Cause of painful sex Boyfriend must put foot down with mom should be examined DEAR DR. ROACH: This is a subject I am reluctant to discuss, but I am at my wits’ end and don’t know what to do. I am 61 years old. I had a vaginal hysterectomy two years ago because of prolapse. I also have had a bladder lift (about 15 years ago). Everything seemed to have gone well. Once I recovered and was allowed to resume sexual relations, I discovered that I could no longer tolerate penetration. It was extremely painful, and I felt like my vagina suddenly was too small or the muscles were clamped down. It feels like a burning, tearing pain, from beginning of penetration to end. The two doctors I have mentioned this problem to didn’t have helpful suggestions. I was fine before the hysterectomy. I am able to orgasm with oral sex. We have tried using lubricants, but they don’t help much. A kit with stretchers of increasing size also did little to help. I really would like to fix this problem and be able to enjoy sex again. I have been enduring painful sex since and have begun to avoid it. I am hoping that you might be able to offer a better solution. Thanks. — D.V. Painful sexual intercourse is a very common problem for women, one that many are reluctant to bring up. The

fact that your problems began after surgery naturally arouses suspicion that the surg ery TO YOUR caused GOOD HEALTH s o m e p r o b lem that is now causing p a i n . There Keith Roach, M.D. are sevNorth America Syndicate eral possibilities of damage that can happen during surgery — even a properly performed surgery can have complications. A trapped nerve, for example, can cause pain during sex that causes the vaginal muscles to “clamp down,” a condition called vaginismus. I wonder whether you might have vaginismus as a complication of the postoperative pain. In any case, you aren’t getting the help you need from your doctors, and you need to see an expert. Fortunately, there are experts in pelvic pain. A sex therapist also may be helpful, and I would recommend seeing one before considering another surgery. Unfortunately, it is possible that another surgery will be required to fix the problem. Only a very careful examination will be able to tell what the problem is. Recurring vaginal infections are often painful and troubling to women.

Dear Annie: In January, my boyfriend and I moved in together after four months of dating. We both have young daughters, and we love all of them. His ex took off two years ago and has no interaction with the children. Their grandmother and great-grandmother, however, have played an active role in the girls’ lives. Because of my boyfriend’s work schedule, the girls stay overnight with his mother several nights a week. Here’s the problem: His family does not approve of me. They haven’t said so to my face, but I know they have hated me since Day One, mainly because of my tattoos and lip ring. I have a great job, pay all of my bills and am very responsible. I removed the lip ring in order to gain their acceptance, but it made no difference. They badmouth my daughter and me to his girls. It’s become so difficult that his girls don’t want

to be near me. His 3-yearold told my daughter she is “dumber than a box of rocks.” We found out that Grandma taught her that. My boyfriend and I only want what’s best for our children and have been discussing breaking up, which neither of us wants. I have tried to talk to his family, but they refuse to answer my calls. I don’t know what to do. I want to keep our family together and our children happy. — N.Y. Dear N.Y.: This is primarily up to your boyfriend. He needs to make it clear that such behavior will not be tolerated. Would he be willing to put the children in daycare so that his mother and grandmother have less influence? Would the threat

of doing so stop them from denigrating you in front of the children? Frankly, we think moving in after four months was a bit premature, and it wouldn’t hurt to take things more slowly. But whether or not you are living together, unless your boyfriend puts his foot down with his mother and grandmother, the situation will not improve. Dear Annie: My husband dropped me off in front of a store so I could buy one item. He was in a golf cart and said, “I will be on this end when you come out.” My shopping took less than two minutes because they didn’t have the item I needed. When I came outside, my husband was not where he said he would be. I waited in clear view in front of the store, but when he didn’t come after five minutes, I began to walk toward where he said he would be waiting. He wasn’t there, so I turned around and walked the

other way, thinking I must have misunderstood him. I did this back-and-forth three times and then just waited in front of the store for another 20 minutes. My husband insists he stayed in the same spot the entire time and didn’t see me. He said I should have come looking for him in the crowded parking lot. I feel he should have been looking for me since he was the one driving. Where he was parked was obscured from my vantage point. He also knows I have poor vision. Who is right? — Wife Left at the Door Dear Wife: The spot your husband picked made him invisible to you and vice versa. He should have been waiting where he said he would be, and you should have looked for him there and then waited where he dropped you off. You absolutely should not have been searching a crowded parking lot. (This is one advantage of having a cellphone.)

Note to product manufacturers: Expiration dates hard to find Dear Readers: Here is this week’s SOUND OFF, about expiration and use-by dates on products: “I’m cleaning out my fridge and noticing how challenging it can be to find product expiration dates. I found two products with the ‘use-by’ dates embossed on the lids and visible only with a magnifying glass. Others are stamped somewhere on the container in small print. I do wish that these important dates were

easier to find and read. It’s a safety f a c t o r. In the meantime, I use a permanent marker to write the date somewhere on the container where I can see it — if I can find it! — Carole H., via email”

I agree with you! If only there were a universal system. Here is a hint: A use-by date means you should consume the product by that date for best quality, not safety, so you don’t necessarily have to throw it out! — Heloise

Fast facts Dear Readers: Other uses for aquarium gravel: • Use as decoration in a

Monday June 10, 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) HHH You could feel pressured by a domestic matter. You just might have had enough, and you won’t be afraid to show it. You’ll want to get more feedback from an older relative or friend who sees life far differently. Re-evaluate your feelings. Tonight: Home is where your heart is. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHHHH Your ability to communicate goes beyond the abilities of many people. A close loved one could be jealous of what you have to offer. You won’t be able to change this person’s feelings, but you can try to see what it’s like to walk in his or her shoes. Tonight: Talk up a storm. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHH Be aware of what you have to offer. A financial arrangement could have you feeling as if you’ve given too much. Do not allow yourself to fall into a pit of despair. Make a point to support yourself in getting a more equal agreement. Tonight: A friend surprises you. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHH Your confidence will allow you to stand up to someone who could be trying to get something for nothing. In the end, this person might give everything away just to get you to agree. Opt for the fair bargain. A parent or boss acts in odd ways. Tonight: Hang out with a pal. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHH You are wise to sit back and do little. Be aware of crosscurrents. Someone might be attempting a major power play. How and when you intervene will be a question of choice. You might opt not to get involved at all. Tonight: Get a good night’s sleep. (You will need it.) VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHHH Keep your focus. Staying present in a meeting could be more important than you realize. Understand what is happening beyond the obvious. Listen to news more openly. A new friend might try to manipulate you in order to get what he or she wants.

Jacquelline Bigar King Features

Tonight: Where the fun is. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHH Pressure builds around a public appearance or career matter. You might not know which way to go. Understanding will evolve between you and a family member, as long as you can get past a control game. The only way to win is not to play. Tonight: Out -- perhaps very late. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHH If you can resist reacting, you will gain a deeper understanding of a situation; not everything is as it seems. Detach. Less judgment and more openness will help you resolve a problem. Prioritize in order to achieve what you want. Tonight: Let your imagination lead. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHH Consider an extended conversation even if you are not “in the mood.” You’ll discover the role of clarity about money and other key issues. In fact, much more so than you thought. A child or new friends perks up your day. Tonight: Paint the town red. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHH Defer to others, and you likely will gain a very different perspective as a result. Listen to news more openly. Unexpected developments could shake you up more than you might expect. Just know that everything will work out if you let go of rigidity. Tonight: Go along with a suggestion. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHH Pace yourself, and be willing to make an adjustment. You might need to stop and have a private conversation with a friend. Open up to new possibilities. Know that your interpretation of recent events could be off. Unexpected news could head your way. Tonight: Hang with friends. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHH Where others hit a wall, you seem to be on cruise control. Your imagination and resourcefulness help you find solutions. A loved one might need some attention. Say “no” to any financial risks, as you might not be getting the full story. Be careful. Tonight: Let go of stress.

Gordon, Hosmer keep Royals hot with 5th consecutive victory KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Luis Mendoza finally figured out what he needs to do to succeed at home. Mendoza pitched four-hit ball in matching zeros with Lucas Harrell for seven innings Sunday before Alex Gordon and Eric Hosmer each had run-scoring singles off reliever Hector Ambriz in the eighth to lead the Kansas City Royals to a 2-0 win over the Houston Astros for their fifth straight win. Mendoza was winless with an 8.05 ERA in his first four home starts this season but was at ease on the mound Sunday. “Mendy threw a tremendous

game,” Hosmer said. “He really had his sinker working and was pounding strikes and playing great defense behind him. Moose (Mike Moustakas) made a lot of great plays behind him.” The Royals’ bullpen has not allowed a run in 17 2-3 innings in the past six games. Royals manager Ned Yost had no doubt Kansas City had the upper hand if the outcome would be determined by the relievers. “Mendy was throwing great and still was at 90 pitches, but was fixing to come around for the fourth time to the top of that order,” Yost said. “And I’m sitting there thinking I’ve got (Aaron) Crow, (Greg)

Holland, (Kelvin) Herrera, (Tim) Collins, Hoch (Luke Hochevar) and (J.C.) Gutierrez, who threw two easy innings last night, plus Bruce Chen. I’m fully stocked. It doesn’t matter how long this game goes, I’ve got enough pitching to wait it out.” Crow (2-1) worked a scoreless eighth to earn a victory that gave the Royals their longest winning streak since taking seven in a row form Sept. 10-17, 2011. With one out in the eighth, Chris Getz singled and stole second off reliever Amrbiz (1-3). Gordon, who was 1 for 18 on this homestand, singled to center for the first run. Gordon moved to

third on center fielder Trevor Crowe’s errant throw home and scored on Hosmer’s single. Greg Holland pitched a spotless ninth for his 12th save in 14 opportunities. Harrell, who has won only once since April 29, held the Royals to two singles in seven scoreless innings. “He was outstanding,” Astros manager Bo Porter said. “Even early on when he walked a couple of guys he made good pitches to get out of innings. He did a tremendous job going seven innings against a pretty good-hitting lineup.” The Astros got only one run-

ner past first base in the first six innings. Ronny Cedeno doubled to start the third and advanced to third base on a groundout, but was stranded there. Mendoza, who entered 0-2 with an 8.05 ERA in four home starts, retired 12 in a row after Cedeno’s double. Harrell, who had won only one of his previous seven starts, retired 13 in a row from the second inning until Perez’s single in the sixth. But he was quickly erased when Billy Butler grounded into a double play. Perez also singled in the first, when the Royals loaded the bases with two outs on walks.

Last rides earn top prizes Three winners produce on Saturday’s final night at Beef Empire Days PRCA Rodeo. By BRETT MARSHALL

Winners in three divisions weren’t determined until the final night of the 2013 Beef Empire Days PRCA Rodeo at the Finney County Fairgrounds Arena. It wasn’t until Saturday’s final night performance that Jake Cooper of Monument, N.M., in Tie Down Roping, Brock Hanson of Casa Grande, Ariz., and Kory Koontz of Sudan, Texas, in Team Roping, and Sarah Kieckhefer of Prescott, Ariz., in Women’s Barrel Racing came up with first-place efforts in their respective events. For Cooper, his 8.5 second run in the Tie Down was good enough for a full second victory over Trent Walls of Stephenville, Texas. For the lifetime performer, whose father also was a world champion, the victory was the latest in a series of strong showings. “I knew I had a good calf drawn,” said Cooper, who had one of his friends tell him he was familiar with the calf. “He said he was a little slow coming out which gave me time to settle in and take my time, and then get to him faster.” Cooper, who said his season had been fairly average until just a few weeks ago, said he likes the Garden City event. “Up until the last three weeks, the tie down had been pretty slow,” Cooper said. “Sometimes I don’t have a lot of time between events (he also competed in team roping), so it was nice to have a friend here

For Pueblo, Colo., native and former Garden City Community College standout Casey Colletti, a chance to return to Garden City was an opportunity too good to pass up. Especially when he had planned on flying to Canada on Saturday for another event, except when he went to purchase the ticket, it was nearly $1,000. He opted to drive the few hours over from his parent’s home in Pueblo and he fashioned a ride of 82 points on a re-ride of TJ’s Problem. That was good enough for a tie for third place, earning him a check for $872.48. “It feels like home when I come here,” said Colletti, now a two-time NFR contestant. “When you have the Korkow horses, you know you’re gonna get a good

horse to ride. Everybody’s got a chance to win when you’ve got quality horses.” A primary reason for returning is the chance to renew his friendship with GCCC rodeo coach Jim Boy Hash. “He’s been like a second father to me,” Colletti said of Hash. “He was awesome when I came here, and not too many schools were recruiting me, but he gave me a chance. We had a great time while I was here, so it’s always nice to come back and see him and others.” Colletti, like so many cowboys on the professional circuit, Garden City was one of several potential stops this week. But the former Broncbuster also was going to take advantage of being in his home area and was planning to spend Sunday off with his own father in Colorado. He had competed in nearly 100 rodeos in 2012 and still has goals of returning to the NFR and competing well in the Circuit finals. At age 27, he shows no signs of slowing down. “I’m doing what I love See PRCA, Page A12

Nadal beats Ferrer for 8th French crown PARIS (AP) — If Rafael Nadal truly was going to be challenged, if his bid for an unprecedented eighth French Open championship would be slowed even a bit, this might have been the moment. Leading by a set and a break 70 minutes into Sunday’s final against David Ferrer, another generally indefatigable Spaniard, Nadal faced four break points in one game. The last was a 31-stroke exchange, the match’s longest, capped when Nadal absorbed Ferrer’s strong backhand approach and transformed it into a cross-court backhand passing shot. Ferrer glared at the ball as it flew past and landed in a corner, then smiled ruefully. What else was there to do? Dealing with Nadal’s defenseto-offense on red clay is a thankless task. His rain-soaked 6-3, 6-2, 6-3 victory over Ferrer was Nadal’s record 59th win in 60 matches at the French Open and made him the only man with eight titles at any Grand Slam tournament. “I never like to compare years, but it’s true that this year means some-

thing very special for me,” Nadal said, alluding to the way he managed to come back from a left knee injury that sidelined him for about seven months. “When you have a period of time like I had,” he added, “you realize that you don’t know if you will have the chance to be back here with this trophy another time.” But he does it, year after year. He won four French Opens in a row from 2005-08, and another four in a row from 2010-13. “Rafael was better than me,” said Ferrer, who had won all 18 sets he’d played the past two weeks to reach his first Grand Slam final at age 31. “He didn’t make mistakes.” A week past his 27th birthday, Nadal now owns 12 major trophies in all — including two from Wimbledon, one each from the U.S. Open and Australian Open — to eclipse Bjorn Borg and Rod Laver and equal Roy Emerson for the third-most in history. Nadal trails only Roger Federer’s 17 and Pete Sampras’ 14. “Winning 17 Grand Slam titles,

that’s miles away,” Nadal said. “I’m not even thinking about it.” This was Nadal’s first major tournament after a surprising secondround loss at Wimbledon last June. Since rejoining the tour in February, he is 43-2 with seven titles and two runner-up finishes. He’s won his past 22 matches. “For me, it’s incredible,” said Toni Nadal, Rafael’s uncle and coach. “When I think of all that Rafael has done, I don’t understand it.” No one, perhaps not even Ferrer himself, expected Nadal to lose Sunday. That’s because of Nadal’s skill on clay, in general, and at Roland Garros, in particular, but also because of how Ferrer had fared against his friend and countryman — and video-game competitor — in the past. Ferrer entered Sunday 4-19 against Nadal. On clay, Nadal had 16 consecutive victories over Ferrer, whose only head-to-head win on the surface came the first time they played, in July 2004.

Heat beat Spurs in Game 2 MIAMI (AP) — LeBron James overcame a terrible start to finish with 17 points, eight rebounds and seven assists and the Miami Heat rolled to a 103-84 victory over the San Antonio Spurs on Sunday night to even the series at a game apiece. Mario Chalmers scored 19 points for the defending champion Heat, who trailed late in the third quarter before going on a 30-5 run to take control. Chris Bosh added 12 points, 10 rebounds and four assists. Danny Green scored 17 points on 6-for-6 shooting and Tony Parker had 13 points on 5-for-14 shooting with five assists for the Spurs, who turned the ball over 17 times after tying a finals record with only four in their Game 1 victory. Game 3 is Tuesday

night in San Antonio. Dwyane Wade added 10 points and six assists for the defending champion Heat, who were down 6261 with under four minutes to play in the third quarter and in danger of falling into a serious hole in their bid to repeat. Tim Duncan and nine points and 11 rebounds, and Kawhi Leonard had 14 rebounds, including eight on offense, for the Spurs, who shot 41 percent. James had a tripledouble in Game 1 with 18 points, 18 rebounds and 10 assists. But his scoring total was the lowest in these playoffs, and again there was chatter that the four-time MVP somehow needed to do more. James brushed those suggestions off, saying it was important to get guys like Bosh and Wade going early to get them into the game.
