Deerfield teachers vote to leave KNEA By ANGIE HAFLICH

according to the AAE. Riley County Educators decertified from KNEA in 2009 to establish a local, teacheronly organization, and 15 school districts nationwide have split from their respective state and national unions’ control of their local associations, according to AAE. After an initial vote held on May 14 that resulted in a tie of 13-13, a second mailin vote was held, and 24 ballots were sent in, according to Joel McClure, a former Deerfield teacher who helped spearhead the effort. Of the 24 that were sent in, only 21 were accepted because three of the teachers had resigned, including McClure. Two other teachers abstained from voting, and one ballot didn’t make it in time, McClure said. “We feel that more voices at the table are more beneficial to everybody,” McClure said. “It creates a win-win situation, and we

Deerfield teachers recently voted to decertify their local teachers association from the Kansas National Education Association, and the move is evoking mixed reactions. On June 7, Deerfield teachers voted 11-10 in favor of splitting from KNEA in order to secure their own bargaining rights. According to a press release from the Association of American Educators, the Deerfield teachers supporting the split sought the assistance of the Kansas Association of American Educators (KANAAE), a state chapter of the AAE, to educate them about the process to become a local teacher-only organization. Deerfield is only the second school district in Kansas to decertify from KNEA,

think it’s the best way to go. We think other school districts are going to pick up on this movement, and we’ve given them a pretty good roadmap to follow.” McClure said the main reason he and other teachers pushed for decertification from KNEA was to have a voice locally. “More and more teachers are liking this idea, separating from the unions, saving money and still being able to negotiate and have a say locally in their schools,” McClure said. “I’m thrilled that our educators were finally able to make the right choice for their school. My colleagues were simply unwilling to pay high dues and bankroll partisan politics in order to have a say locally.” Deerfield’s local KNEA chapter, the Deerfield Teachers Association, remains and currently five of the 27 teachers in the Deerfield district are members.

The relatively small number of members in the DTA is one reason that McClure and others felt that seeking an alternative was a must. “We started to think, ‘Well, what if next year, it’s four (members), what if it’s three, what if it’s two, what if it’s one?” he said. “That only leaves a very, very small amount of people to govern locally, and that’s just no good for anybody. So, about the only way we could fix it was to go through this decertification process to try to change it, and luckily, we were very successful in that.” Mike Quilling, vice president of the DTA, said KNEA provides invaluable assistance in upholding and enforcing negotiated agreements, but he has additional concerns about the split.

Armed employees could cost Kansas schools insurance TOPEKA (AP) — The company that insures most of Kansas’ school districts says it won’t provide coverage for districts that allow armed employees on school premises. EMC Insurance Companies has told its agents not to offer or renew policies for Kansas school districts that allow concealed weapons under a law that takes effect July 1. The new law lets school boards designate employees who can bring guns to school provided they have a valid Kansas concealed carry permit. Currently, only law enforcement officers can carry guns on school property. Unless a school board approves a policy permitting staff to carry firearms in schools only law enforcement would be allowed to carry them in buildings. EMC insures about 90 percent of the state’s 286 school districts, The Topeka Capital-Journal reported. Bernie Zalaznik, EMC’s resident vice president in Wichita, said Monday that the company believes the decision is in its best financial interest because of the potential liabilities. “We understand that school districts have every right to decide which way they want to go,” Zalaznik said. Zalaznik said he had heard from about six districts across Kansas that are interested in allowing employees to carry firearms in schools. David Shriver, director of the Kansas Association of School Boards’ insurance program, said about a dozen small districts have inquired about allowing weapons. KASB is advising all districts not to allow weapons in schools.

Cities, counties get new chance at state housing grant By RUTH CAMPBELL

Cities and counties have a chance to apply again this year for a grant that can help bring housing to areas sorely in need of residences. Administered by the Kansas Housing Resources Corp., the Kansas Moderate Income Housing Program is an initiative to help cities and counties

develop moderate income housing and infrastructure in rural areas. Now in its second year, it is funded by a $2 million state allocation. Awards are capped at $400,000, and only cities and counties can apply. J.R. Behan, KHRC director of operations and former city commissioner and mayor of Garden City, said during a webinar on Tuesday that KHRC wants communities with less

than 60,000 population to put in their applications, which are due Sept. 6, with awards set to be made on or about Oct. 11. Last year, Garden City received a $300,000 grant that helped bring about Pioneer Road Estates, an 11-acre complex featuring 13 duplexes and 17 single-family homes. The duplexes will sit on 4.4 acres on the south side of the site and the homes on 6.6 acres on

the south side. The developer is G.C. Residential Builders. Kaleb Kentner, planning and community development director for Garden City, who also handles planning, zoning and code enforcement for Finney County and the city of Holcomb, said there have been discussions with both entities about going for the grant this See Housing, Page A5

Pamplin, Garden City Arts team up, aim to renovate State Theatre By SCOTT AUST

Mark Pamplin, leader of the effort to renovate the State Theatre in downtown Garden City, is teaming up with Garden City Arts in the effort to raise money for the estimated $3 million project. Built in 1929, the State Theatre, 418 N. Main St., was used as a theater until December 1999, when it was donated to the city. Last fall, in response to the city commission’s request for proposals concerning the State, Pamplin proposed a 400-seat, theater in the round renovation that would involve entirely gutting the interior to create a central stage surrounded by seating on the first floor, and turn the second floor into rehearsal and office space.

Originally, Pamplin believed he would be able to find a few private investors to fund the project. However, those he approached were unsure about the project’s return on investment, prompting Pamplin to pursue a non-profit status to raise money. He found a willing partner in Garden City Arts, and Executive Director Laurie Chapman. “The experience that Laurie brings to fundraising for the arts definitely helps in an effort of this size. The non-profit status creates opportunities for tax deductions for both individuals and corporations that donate. The Garden City Arts helps in raising awareness of the project and in the seeking of grants,” Pamplin said. Chapman said Garden City Arts’ mission is to enrich lives and encourage creativity

through the arts. “While we primarily deal with the visual arts, we’re not limited to that. We also encourage the performing arts, the literary arts, all aspects. This is just another way for us to help create a more vibrant, active arts community in Garden City. It just seemed logical,” she said. To kick off the fundraising partnership, a wine and cheese reception is slated from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. tonight at Garden City Arts Gallery, 318 N. Main St. During the next several months, Pamplin said plans are being developed for other fundraising events, such as an 80s dance, a banquet, a standup comedy show and possibly a play during the Christmas season.

Wheat harvest now officially in full swing By The Telegram After weather-related stops and starts, the 2013 Kansas wheat harvest is officially in full swing in several south-central Kansas locations, with test cutting as far north as McPherson County in central Kansas and as far west as Clark County, according to the state wheat harvest report. The report is provided by the Kansas City Board of Trade — a part of the CME Group, the Kansas Grain and Feed Association, the Kansas Wheat Commission and Kansas Association of Wheat Growers. Near Kiowa, a few isolated wheat fields were harvested last week. On Tuesday, however, the harvest really got under way, according to Steve Inslee, general manager of the OK Co-op in Kiowa. So far, about 350,000 bushels have been taken in by the elevator. Test weight averages 59 pounds per bushel, and protein ranges from 12 to 15.6. Despite a rain earlier this week, the wheat is dry and Inslee says weather-permitting, the area harvest could be complete in a week. Cowley County Extension Agent Jill Zimmerman says farmers in Sumner County began harvesting mid-afternoon Tuesday, after fields had dried out from a one-inch shower on Sunday night. Zimmerman’s family started on a field of the variety Everest; test weight was 61 pounds and yield is about 45 bushels per acre. Wheat began trickling into the Anthony Farmers Co-op over the weekend, but harvest activity geared up on Tuesday. Test weights average 60 pounds per bushel, but no yields have been reported so far.

State Board of Regents approves tuition hikes TOPEKA (AP) — Students at Kansas’ public universities will pay higher tuition this fall — some almost 9 percent more — under proposals approved Wednesday by the state Board of Regents in response to legislative cuts in higher education funding. The tuition hikes are expected to raise $34 million during the fiscal year that begins July 1. The regents and university officials have complained repeatedly over the past decade that tight state funding for higher education has pushed them to raise student costs. The fall increases will partially offset funding cuts that the Republican-dominated Legislature approved this year despite the objections of GOP Gov. Sam Brownback. However, the universities also plan to give their professors modest pay raises, in the hopes they will help the schools retain senior faculty, and the tuition increase will also help schools cover higher administrative costs and pursue other initiatives. Brownback had proposed keeping state funding for higher education flat during each of the next two fiscal years. According to the regents, however, lawmakers enacted reductions from current spending that total $44 million over those two years, with the bulk coming from universities’ budgets. But some conservative Republican legislators have questioned whether the universities

The ongoing debate about higher education funding also comes as Brownback and many fellow Republicans pursue a shared goal of eventually phasing out the state’s personal income tax as a way to try to stimulate

the economy. As for students and their families, outof-state graduate students at Pittsburg State University would see the biggest increase, at 8.8 percent. The smallest increase, 3 percent, would be for out-of-state veterinary medical students at Kansas State University. At Fort Hays State University, tuition for all classes of students will rise about 3.4 percent. President Ed Hammond said Fort Hays could have avoided any increases if the Legislature hadn’t pushed through the funding cuts. He said the cuts will force his university to delay the start a new software engineering program. For undergraduates from Kansas, tuition would increase nearly 5 percent at the University of Kansas, so that someone taking a full course load would pay $4,198 in tuition and fees for a semester. However, most of its students have entered into compacts that guarantee their tuition rates for four years, so that they wouldn’t be affected. The new rate for new students entering into such a compact would be $4,613 a semester. At Kansas State University, tuition for state-resident undergraduates would increase 7 percent, so that someone taking 15 hours of courses would pay $3,915 a semester in tuition on its Manhattan campus and $3,707 on its Salina campus.

Immaturity and the modern male

Fine fare


Farmers’ markets showcase local growers’ dedication.


t seemed fitting that when long overdue rain finally arrived, farmers’ markets were starting up in the area. One such event came Saturday in Garden City, with the farmers’ market located in the parking lot at the corner of Fleming Street and Harding Avenue. The Saturday morning markets run through late September. Local shoppers looking for fresh produce and other homemade and homeWhat are your favorite grown treats items available at farmanticipate the ers’ markets? Add your comments at the end of gatherings the online version of this that have long editorial at GCTelegram. been a staple com/opinion. in the region. While farmers’ markets early on don’t include the full menu of items usually available in mid-summer, they still have plenty to offer — as well as a way of whetting the appetite for what’s to come. There’s much to look forward to in homegrown tomatoes, sweet corn, cantaloupe and other fruits and vegetables featured throughout the summer at farmers’ markets. And there’s even more to like about the entire process. Buying food grown locally is a good way to show support for the community, environment and overall wellness thanks to the availability of a greater selection of healthier fare in veggies and fruits in particular. In a state where bigger farm operations continue to produce abundant, affordable food that helps feed the world, it’s also encouraging to know a number of growers in our midst focus on smaller quantities of fresh produce and other treats that appeal to consumers. Of course, they do so in difficult circumstances. Painful drought gripping the region has intensified, making it all the more difficult for anyone trying to grow vegetables and other crops — regardless of the size of their operations. The recent rainfall had to be refreshing to everyone involved, even if it was a drop in the bucket in a region still far below normal precipitation for the year. If anything, seeing producers conquer the challenge of hot, dry, windy conditions in bringing tasty vegetables and fruits to market only makes those goods all the more delectable. Enjoy the bounty this year’s area farmers’ markets have to offer, and do so knowing you’re supporting the efforts of friends and neighbors eager to share the great fare they produce.

Enforcement game over immigration C

ongress is boring. It can’t even make new false promises. On border security, it keeps making the same assurances. The Gang of Eight immigration bill, which could well be the signature legislative accomplishment of President Barack Obama’s second term, travels in the well-worn ruts of past immigration promises. The Gang of Eight is offering this basic deal: “We will pretend to enforce the law, if you pretend to believe us.” The Gang of Eight bill purports to create an exit-entry visa system that Congress has been mandating since 1996. Back then, only the most cynical of observers would have believed that 17 years later, Congress would seek to pass a new amnesty for roughly 11 million illegal aliens partly in exchange for the very same entry-exit system. But in the immigration debate, cynicism always pays. In 2006, Congress passed a law calling for about 700 miles of double-layer fencing on the border. We’ve built about 36 miles, or a good, solid 5 percent. At this rate, we’ll have all the double fencing in another 130 years. The rest of the mileage is various forms of inferior fencing, in keeping with a loophole Congress passed the very next year giving the Department of Homeland Security discretion in how it would go about building the fence. Executive discretion is where border enforcement goes to die, and as it happens, the Gang of Eight enforcement provisions are entirely at the

mercy of the executive. The secretary of homeland security merely submits a plan to do the things the executive branch has been mandated to do, but failed to do in the past. Who decides whether it is working? The secretary of homeland security. This is so self-evidently ridiculous, even the Gang of Eight apparently realizes it needs to make some gesture toward toughening the bill. For his part, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio is doing the best Hamlet since John Gielgud. He is refusing to say whether he will vote “yes” on his own Gang of Eight bill after spending months drafting, defending and helping shepherd it to the floor. He has supposedly discovered that the enforcement provisions are inadequate, although he has done countless interviews insisting the bill contains the “toughest immigration-enforcement measures in the history of the United States.” Another basic problem in the architecture of the bill is that the amnesty comes before anything else, giving the Obama administration, ethnic interest groups and the business lobby every incentive to resist any enforcement measures after they pass. Rubio is loath to admit that the amnesty comes first, although in a recent inter-

view on Univision, he indeed admitted it: “First comes the legalization. Then come the measures to secure the border. And then comes the process of permanent residence.” In a subsequent interview, he said he was inartful, which in Washington is a synonym for “frank.” When he’s speaking more artfully, he is careful to blur the difference between the initial amnesty and the process of getting a green card to give the misimpression that enforcement has to happen before anything else does. Not that he’ll use the word “amnesty.” A hallmark of Republican supporters of the Gang of Eight bill is stating their earnest opposition to amnesty at the same time they support amnesty. They call the status quo a “de facto” amnesty, but refuse to make the basic concession to logic that codifying the “de facto” amnesty makes it a “de jure” amnesty. They readily call the 1986 immigration reform “amnesty,” even though the essential features of the Gang of Eight bill — legalization with a few symbolic hoops for the newly legal immigrants — are exactly the same. The Gang of Eight bill is powered, in large part, by pretense and word games. If this bill passes, and then a decade or so from now we need another amnesty, the road map to passage will be easy: Congress can promise to follow up on the Gang of Eight’s enforcement measures — yet again.

Shaky justice in Stand Your Ground By MARY SANCHEZ


he Trayvon Martin murder case will boil down to one claim known by mothers everywhere. “He started it!” Every parent with more than one child has heard that cry. When their little one points his or her finger accusingly at a sibling, claiming to have been provoked into the tussle or name-calling, a wise parent responds with, “Well, why did you react?” George Zimmerman will be asked if he instigated the altercation that led to him shooting to death the unarmed Trayvon, for which Zimmerman now faces the charge of seconddegree murder. The basis of Zimmerman’s defense is that, fearing for his life, he believed he was justified to shoot and kill. The jury, being chosen now, will decide. Zimmerman waived his right for a hearing to exculpate himself under Florida’s Stand Your Ground law, although his lawyer has suggested that he may attempt to invoke the law if he is found guilty in his impending trial. These laws need to be better understood for their implications for a civil society. Since Florida became the first state to pass the so-called Stand Your Ground law in 2005, about 30 other states have followed suit with some form of these laws. Most states have the Castle Doctrine, which allows people to use deadly force, without the expectation to retreat, when threatened in their own home. What the Stand Your Ground laws do is broaden the right to kill without retreating, even when it is possible, to other places, such as a workplace or a car.

Prior to the spread of these new laws, people were expected to back down, to retreat, if possible. Shoot First, Stand Your Ground, Make My Day laws can make it legal to refuse to walk away. More research is needed into the effects of these laws. However, the evidence available now should trouble anyone who thinks laws should make society safer, rather than promoting violence. One point is made repeatedly by David Hemenway, director of the Harvard Injury Control Research Center: “Firearms are used far more often to frighten and intimidate than they are used in self-defense.” People are confused about what constitutes self-defense. What many people term selfdefense is really just the last act in an argument gone out of control, a situation that escalates until one or both parties reach for a gun. In one study, verbatim accounts of people who claimed self-defense were sent to criminal court judges for review. The majority of time, the judges felt the shootings, as described by the shooter, were not legal uses of selfdefense. Most often, the cases were simply arguments that ended violently when one person used a gun. Many were avoidable. The Harvard Center has ripped apart other studies that overestimate the number of instances in which people have justifiably used a gun in self-defense. Given a chance

to paint themselves a victim/ hero, shooters often do, no matter what the facts of their cases were. So when researches try to estimate what proportion of shootings are cases of self-defense, it’s problematic to say the least to base their figures on the shooters’ selfreported motives. Hemenway has also noted that in interviews, about half of convicted felons who used a gun in their crimes claim they did so in self-defense. Many of these instances probably aren’t all that different from the type of the knuckleheaded justifications for murder that we regularly hear on the evening news: the endless stories of one teenager claiming someone “disrespected” them with a sneer, an ugly comment. So they just had to shoot the person dead. People readily recognize the ludicrous nature of the claim that violence was necessary, that someone “had it coming to them.” Yet Stand Your Ground laws by definition turn this lack of self-control and inability to manage disagreement into a legal right to use lethal force. It’s sanctioned murder. Depending on how one of these laws is crafted, it can even take away the ability of police to file charges, and prosecutors can face higher burdens of proof. The question that needs to be answered is if the proliferation of Stand Your Ground laws are influencing public behavior to the point of making us less safe. If he was alive to answer, it would be good to get Trayvon Martin’s opinion. Mary Sanchez is an opinion-page columnist for The Kansas City Star. Email her at

et this: A new study finds men don’t mature until age 43. If only my father could have enjoyed such a luxury. Great Britain’s Daily Mail newspaper reports that the study, commissioned by Nickelodeon UK, examined differences in maturity between men and women. It found both sexes agree that men are far less mature and women reach full maturity 11 years sooner. Some examples: Men still have their mothers do their laundry, laugh when they burp or break wind, snicker at dirty words and don’t know how to cook even the most basic meals. Compare such modern males to my father. He was 3 when his father died in 1937 — in the thick of the Great Depression. His mother had to work full-time to support him and his sister, and she worried constantly about them both — particularly about my father. He was immature when males are supposed to be, as a boy, and he got into a bit of mischief, pulling pranks and doing the things boys used to do. He once told me that he and his lads thought it a funny idea to set a large rock onto trolley tracks. A trolley made a spectacular noise when it hit the rock, scraped along and nearly jumped off the tracks — but luckily, nobody got hurt. My father’s mischievous ways were finally tamed in the ninth grade when his school’s football coach persuaded him to join the team. The coach became a father figure to my dad — who discovered a talent for carrying a football with power and speed. (He was inducted into the Carrick Football Hall of Fame about 15 years ago.) Football taught him responsibility. It matured him. He was only 16 when he met my mother and that matured him, too. His dream was to marry her and, soon out of high school, he began searching various opportunities so he could provide for a family. He passed on college football scholarships, disappointing his mother and coach, to try his hand at pattern-making and plumbing. His plans were interrupted when he got drafted into the Army, but when he returned two years later, he found a secure position with the telephone company. By the time he was 23, he was married, with his first daughter — to be followed by five more children over the years. His entire life was devoted to working hard to provide for his family. He never kept more than $5 a week for himself to buy an occasional cup of coffee. It’s amazing how rapidly things have changed from his generation to today’s. My father will be 80 next month. Until he retired, his entire adult life was about work and sacrifice. His only respite was enjoying a few icecold beers when he got home at night or an after-dinner nap on the back porch. He was fully mature in his 20s — a maturity born out of necessity. Perhaps if my father had been born in the modern era, he would be just as lackadaisical as today’s males. But then again, my father had to mature to win my mother’s heart, so they could have a home and a family and a good long life together — and that is exactly what they accomplished. In any event, it is true that modern males are maturing later, which explains this joke: Q: Why are men so much better at psychoanalysis than women? A: Because when it is time to go back to their childhood, men are already there. Tom Purcell is a Pittsburgh Tribune-Review humor columnist. Email him at Distributed by Cagle Cartoons Inc.

Deerfield: Teachers vote to separate from KNEA Continued from Page A1

“We’re concerned that support of education is going to bear the largest part of tax cuts. We need supportive education representation in Topeka,� Quilling said, referring to KNEA. USD 216 Board President Richard Braun declined to comment. Vice President David Whatley also declined to comment, stating that he could not do so because the school board has yet to be notified about what parties they will be dealing with. Amy Griffin, president of the DTA, and Amy DeLaRosa, USD 216 superintendent, did not return telephone calls seeking comment. Pamela Torgerson, director of

Southwest UniServ, the district headquarters for KNEA, said Deerfield teachers can join KNEA at any time, but the decertification limits what KNEA can do in terms of contract negotiations. “It just means that it will be harder for us to enforce the contract, but they still have other rights that other members would have for negotiations,� Torgerson said. “Either way, I hope they do well. We want the new organization to do well at bargaining because our members are still working there, and we want them to do well, too.� Torgerson said self-representation places the burden on teachers, should a contract dispute arise. “My concern with that is that without any kind of orga-

nizational backing, it’s going to be hard for the teachers there to enforce their negotiated agreement. So, if they get into trouble during bargaining, they have to go to mediation on their own, and if things work out even worse and they decide to go to fact-finding, they’re pretty much on their own. They would have to pay for the fact finder to come out,� she said, adding that most teachers not affiliated with organizations such as KNEA don’t have that kind of money. “So they could be in a vulnerable position,� she said. Alternative non-union professional organizations, such as the KANAAE provide liability insurance and legal counsel for lower fees to teachers, but they

aren’t involved in negotiations, according to the AAE. “We would like to congratulate the teachers of Deerfield on this critical vote,� Garry Sigle, executive director of the KANAAE, said in the press release. “These teachers wanted a voice locally without having to join the NEA. KANAAE is proud to provide teachers with support services that empower them to create an organization that best meets the needs of local educators.� McClure said he sees the teachers’ gain in bargaining power as one benefit of the split from KNEA. “All teachers, by virtue of being employed in the district, have full rights and responsibilities in the local governing body,� McClure said. “They can

be members of whatever they want to, but they still have all their rights and responsibilities just by virtue of being an employee, a teacher in the district.� He added that in a community the size of Deerfield, where almost everyone knows each other, most issues can be worked out at the table. “There’s no instance that I can think of in two decades where KNEA has had to come in to control an out-of-control administration and school board. I mean, it just doesn’t happen,� McClure said. “The teachers are ready for this change, and they’re ready to step up to the plate and do what needs to be done in governing the schools the way they think.�

year. “We’re definitely looking for projects with developers who are interested in partnering to get that grant in either of those jurisdictions,� Kentner said. The KHRC explained to the city of Garden City that the “odds are pretty slim if Garden City were to apply for another one. We probably won’t apply for one for the city, but those that are located in the county or Holcomb, we’re definitely entertaining that. ... It is a fantastic program, and we hope that it continues to be funded. ... We have a such a high demand and need for housing everywhere in

Finney County, whether it’s in Holcomb or Garden City, this is a great tool that can help get some of those housing needs filled,� Kentner said. Behan said his agency anticipates applications being “very competitive this year,� with entities that didn’t get funding and those who were unable to compile an application last year entering the mix. “Last year, we had 72 people at all of the meetings. This year, we had 148. That’s double the amount. We’ve doubled the amount of attendance at the public meetings just in the past year. I think that’s good. More people have found out about it,� Behan said.

Behan said he hopes the program will be in a position in the future to ask for more funding, but for now, especially with the state’s tight budget, “We’re happy that we were still included,� he said. City Planner Sam Henderson said G.C. Residential Builders wants to complete Pioneer Road Estates by the end of the year. “That’s the goal they’re ultimately trying to reach,� Henderson said. The developer also is participating in the Rural Housing Incentive District program, so if the project is finished by the end of the year, developers can maximize their property tax increment, Henderson said. The

increment — which the developers would get as a rebate — is the difference between what the developer would pay in taxes post construction minus preconstruction taxes, Henderson said. As part of that program, the city had to approve a development agreement, which included a list of eligible expenses the rebate can be used to reimburse, Henderson said. These can include paving, grading, site preparation and design costs, he said. “It’s been a good tool for us to stimulate housing. (The Reserves at) Prairie Ridge used that. They were the first development to use that RHID program,� Henderson

said. Fred Bentley, director of rental development, said during the webinar that the applications aren’t based on a point system, but leverage — where the community contributes substantially to the project along with KHRC, is also a factor. “We want to hear where housing is a real problem. Tell us some of the anecdotal stories about what is happening,� Bentley said. He added that people have told him about people who move to a town for a job and have to live in another city, or perhaps in basements or assisted living facilities in one instance. “We want to hear where housing is a real

problem,� Bentley said. “... Tell us as much as you can, concisely, about what’s going on in your community. You could include opportunities of what you’ve missed out on,� he said. For entities that haven’t received funding, Bentley advises them to be persistent. “You really have to keep working at this. Even if you’re not successful, it does get you on our radar screen and allows us to be more aware of what’s happening in your community,� Bentley said. “We’re trying to increase awareness in policy making areas, the Legislature and elsewhere, to try to get more funding for this program.�

is the Star Program, a walk of fame outside the theater recognizing people who donate $1,500. In addition to the star, people who donate $1,500 will receive two free season tickets for the inaugural season. Chapman said she is excited about the potential benefit the theater holds for Main Street, both for its economic base and in con-

tinuing to add to the city’s thriving arts community. “We’re right down the street from a train station. People can get off the train, come down here to the local gallery and see some art, eat at a restaurant and then take in a show,� Chapman said. “We already have people coming to this community to shop, let’s build on that. Let’s create a creative center, a focal point, in our community that adds to

that. We’re not only a shopping center, we’re a thriving arts center.� In addition to the theater in the round, the first floor will include dressing rooms, concessions, restrooms and a ticketing office. The second floor, which spans the entire building, will provide rehearsal space, a dance studio, costume and set storage, and offices. Pamplin said the renovated theater will be inti-

DODGE CITY — Agribusinessman and former Bucklin mayor Bud Estes, 66, will take the oath of office Thursday in Topeka as he becomes the new state representative from the 119th House District. Estes, now living in Dodge City, edged Terry Janson, a fellow Dodge City Republican and retiring chief executive officer of Victory Electric Cooperative, in a 10-8 vote at a convention Tuesday night in Dodge City. They were the only two vying to fill the vacancy that will be created by the resignation of Rep. Brian Weber, R-Dodge City. Because Weber is Republican, it was up to the GOP precinct committee members in the 119th District to choose

Weber’s successor. Weber, juggling family, work and legislative duties, announced recently he would resign on the formal adjournment day of this year’s session. That day is Thursday. Weber attended the convention Tuesday night and will be at the Statehouse Thursday. Weber said he will make remarks from the House floor and then Estes will be sworn in. “He’ll show me the ropes,� Estes said. “I think Bud’s going to be a great representative for Dodge City and western Kansas,� Weber said Tuesday night. Estes described himself as a “conservative Republican,� long interested in government. He will complete Weber’s two-year ter m, which will expire in January 2015.

Insulting kids — at any age — is inappropriate parenting Dear Annie: Our oldest son, “Adam,� lives two hours away with his wife, “Eve,� and their three children. One child, “Hayden,� is Eve’s from a prior relationship. She married Adam when the boy was 3. The biological father is irresponsible and alcoholic but loves Hayden and sees him when he can. Hayden is now 13 and a good student, and he works hard to please his parents. We love and cherish him and consider him our own grandson. But we are heartsick that Adam and Eve seem to single him out for unkind treatment. They take him to task constantly for minor infractions. They fling insults and belittling comments at him. He is scolded for the tone of his voice, his posture, manner-


isms and nearly everything he says. His parents sometimes make him stand in a corner. It’s humiliating for him. His siblings are not treated this way. Hayden is basically a good and decent boy, and his parents seem to resent him. We are worried sick that if this treatment continues, he will rebel, and we won’t like the consequences.

hesitate to take that road again. What can we do? — Worried Grandparents D e a r G r a n d pa r e n t s : Belittling, insulting and humiliating one’s child — at any age — is angry, inappropriate parenting. Since your son and his wife do not want your input, we suggest you offer to take Hayden for weekends or over the summer for a couple of weeks (or more) if you can manage it. He and his parents could use a break from one another. It isn’t a substitute for better parenting, but it will help. You also can suggest to Hayden that he speak to you, his school counselor or favorite teacher whenever he needs to talk. Dear Annie: We often have two delightful boys

over to our house to play with our two sons. These boys are teenagers. We’ve known them for years. They are being home-schooled by their very caring mother. For the first time, the four boys were playing a game that required writing answers and reading them. As I observed them, I could see that the two homeschoolers were having trouble both writing and reading. I finally asked what the problem was, and they said they had never been taught to write in script. These are smart boys, but I worry this could be a real handicap for them in life. Should I talk with their mother or just let it go? — Feeling Sorry in Vermont Dear Vermont: Fewer and fewer students are learning to read or

write in script. With all the keyboards around, penmanship is rarely taught, and script writing has become a lost art. Will it handicap them? Perhaps if they have to read a note from Grandma, but otherwise, it’s unlikely. By the time they are looking for a full-time job, most of their peers will be in the same boat. Dear Annie: I must take exception to one of your suggestions to “Perplexed,� whose father insisted on hearing his voice every day. I think it is ridiculous to expect adult children to call their parents every day. I am a parent of a wonderful grown son and lovely daughter-in-law. I would NEVER expect them to call me every day. I would never

be intrusive and barge in on them without calling first. Why do we allow family members to treat each other inconsiderately and without respect when we wouldn’t treat others this way? Parents need to respect that their child’s spouse and children come first. The kids might want to call or be with their parents more if it is not such a burden. — Fran Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

One of the easiest ways to tell if you need new tires Dear Readers: When is the best time to buy new tires? When they are on sale? When your current tires have 10,000 miles on them? When they are 6 years old? Well, the simple answer is: When the tread is extremely worn. However, other factors to consider are the age, cracks, bulges or any other physical defects. The easiest way to determine if you need new tires is by checking the tread depth. Tires are now made with “wear bars� that

run across the tire tread. If you can see them, your tread is at 2/32-inch depth, which most states require as the minimum. If you can’t see the wear bars, then try this simple and classic hint: Take a penny and insert it with Lincoln’s head down into the tread. If you can see the top of Lincoln’s head, the tread is too low, and you need new tires. Also consider the age of the tires. If they are 5 years old or older, you probably need new ones. — Heloise

Pill bottles Dear Heloise: I take a lot of vitamins and several prescriptions. Unscrewing the tops to all the bottles when I fill my pill reminder got to be a real aggravation. Now I keep the flip tops that come on some (prescription — Heloise) bottles and have accumulated enough that nearly all of my bottles have flip tops. Sure makes things easier. — Flipping Out in Alabama

Another director’s chair use Dear


Southwest Community

Besides director chairs serving as extra chairs, take off the back strap and put down the sides — they make an excellent luggage rack for the guest bedroom. I look forward to your hints -- they are the best! — Diane in Florida

Putting on socks Dear Heloise: I had hip surgery and was supposed to wear compression socks. They were so hard to get on. My husband came up with wearing rubber gloves. Now they are super easy — with his help, they go right on. — Mary, via email

For the most part, you should expect to hear an open, unfiltered response. Your kindness and willingness to let another eccentric person express him- or herself will be greatly appreciated. Tonight: Know when to call it a night. TAURUS (April 20-May 29) HHHH Others will be testing their limits. You might not be sure which way to head. Understanding evolves quickly if you deflect others’ energy and force those around you to take responsibility. Your clarity in a discussion helps. Tonight: Start making weekend plans. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHH Your playful nature attracts many people, yet others might really misunderstand where you are coming from. Know your limits with people, and recognize what is needed to proceed. Open up to new possibilities that are presented by a loved one. Tonight: Squeeze in some exercise. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHH Your creativity seems endless to many people. You’ll hear news in a more open manner than usual; however, sometimes you can’t help but close down. Honor your unusual ingenuity, and toss it into the mix. You could be surprised by what you hear. Tonight: Ever full of fun. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHH You might encounter more obstacles than usual. Perhaps you are more sensitive right now. Initiate a conversation with a close family member. Understand what this person expects, then make a decision about whether you want to fulfill his or her desires. Tonight: Mosey on home. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHHH Keep a conversation moving. Be willing to let your guard down and put all your cards on the table. The conversion that ensues will allow greater giveand-take. Know what you expect from someone else. Are there any boundaries being crossed? Tonight: Chat up a storm.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHH Honor your limits, as you might not want to get mixed up in a financial situation. You know how to say “no.” It is important to let others know where you stand and how you feel. Listen to your instincts regarding an emotional situation. Tonight: Treat a friend to dinner and a movie. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHHH Do not hesitate to express your feelings. Others naturally will focus on what you have to say. Evaluate what is happening beyond the obvious. Address any issues you encounter. Share a special event with a dear friend. Tonight: Demonstrate that the world really is your oyster. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHH Know when to call it a day. You could get easily exhausted or perhaps even aggravated by someone who is fundamental to your life history. Let this person take the lead. You will be able to work through a problem at a later date. Indulge yourself. Tonight: Whatever works. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHH A friend might reach out to you. Could this person have strong feelings about you? You will want to detach in order to see what is going on with him or her. Be careful, especially if you do not feel the same. You do not want to lead this individual on. Tonight: Where your friends are. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHH Don’t let someone ruin your day by giving too much power to his or her statement. Avoid playing his or her words over and over again in your mind. You will gain a new perspective in a conversation with a friend. Be sure not to take this for granted. Tonight: A force to be dealt with. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHH Listen to a friend’s perspective. Someone at a distance often serves as a trusted adviser. Seek this person out in order to get feedback on what appears to be a touchy issue. A child or loved one expresses his or her feelings in an unthreatening way. Tonight: Let romance in.

Natural intimacy boosters for men L

ightning ROD. Bullet Proof. Zoom-ZoomaZoom. Since 2011, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has issued warnings for these and 24 additional sexual-enhancement supplements that are secretly laced with dangerous drugs. If you’re among the more than 33 million North American guys looking for an erectile-dysfunction fix, don’t believe the hype that these pills are “all natural” or safe. Under a microscope, some of these chemicals look similar to the active ingredients in FDAapproved ED drugs like Viagra and Cialis. But lab studies show they’re not just unapproved, bargainbasement substitutes, some contain chemicals that haven’t been evaluated for safety. The manufacturers also don’t tell you if there’s a risk for drug interactions with any other medications you may be taking. For example, some of them may trigger life-threatening problems like a big drop in blood pressure. We want you to get back into the game safely and effectively, so try our eight natural strategies proven to improve your “zoom.” No. 1: Have a heart-toheart with your doctor. Finding out what’s behind your ED will help you find

Michael Roizen, M.D. and Mehmet Oz, M.D.

the best fix — and save your life. Often, ED is a sign of heart disease. The connection? When the cells that line your blood vessels are damaged — by high blood pressure, high blood sugar, inflammation or unmanaged stress — they lose their flexibility and become narrow and stiff. When blood flow is restricted it more than doubles your odds for heart disease and ED. No. 2: Ask about blood sugar. Up to 70 percent of men with type 2 diabetes report sexual-performance problems. The culprits are nerve and artery damage. Keep your blood sugar in the healthy zone by avoiding foods with added sug-

ars, added syrups or any grain that isn’t 100 percent whole. They can prevent healthy erectile function. No. 3: Be honest about emotions. For 10 percent to 20 percent of men, sexual vigor is reduced by stress, depression, anxiety and low self-esteem. The biggest and most powerful sexual organ you possess is (no, it’s not that!) your brain. Happiness is sexy. No. 4: Lose the elasticwaist pants. Dropping just 5 percent of your body weight (10 pounds in eight weeks if you’re at 200 pounds) could improve your love life significantly. Double that weight loss, and you’re 30 percent more likely to see ED problems vanish. No. 5: Sweat a little. Exercising for 15 minutes a day can improve bedroom fun by nearly 20 percent — so consider the benefits of logging in 30 minutes a day (that’s the minimum we get ourselves). It helps overcome erectile problems by cooling body-wide inflammation (an emerging factor in ED), and keeping your artery linings flexible and blood flowing to all your important zones. No. 6: Put the “Do Not Disturb” sign on your bedroom door more often. If you use it, you’re less likely to lose it, so enjoy time

with your honey as often as you can — even if you have to schedule it. And if you are having ED problems, don’t avoid intimate times; find creative ways to share your passions. No. 7: Follow a romancelover’s diet. Fill your breakfast, lunch and dinner plate with foods you’d find at a beach-side restaurant in Greece: fruit; veggies; lean protein, such as grilled salmon; whole grains; olive oil; and, if you drink alcohol, a little wine. To reverse ED: One study found bumping up fiber, slashing bad fats (like fatty meats) and ditching refined sugars and syrups helped 33 percent of guys vanquish erectile problems. To prevent ED: Another study showed guys who added good fats (extra virgin olive oil) to that upgraded diet cut their risk for ED by 66 percent. Adding walnuts and non-fried fish offers even more protection. No. 8: Brush and floss. Severe gum disease doubles your risk for ED. The link? Could be the bodywide effects of chronic inflammation (and related cardiovascular problems) fueled by mouth trouble. Don’t gum up the works; brush and floss daily and see your dental professional regularly. You’ll have a new reason to smile.

Protecting against hospital infections Q &hA

-10s -0s










90s 100s 110s


Q: My husband will be in the hospital for knee replacement surgery, and I’m worried about hospitalborne infections. Any good news on this front? — Sarah, F., Newport, R.I. A: Yes, a tremendous amount. Progress is being made by hospitals to prevent infections from all causes and specifically from superbugs. You can always ask about a hospital’s infection rate, both overall and within each department. You also can ask about the technology used to avoid infections. Here’s what’s new and tried-and-true. • There’s ever-improving older technology. UltraViolet (UV) germicidal technology continues to be upgraded and is used for sterilizing operating rooms, air ducts, hospital equipment, hallways and patient rooms. And steam/vacuum sterilization (by autoclaving for instruments) and the use of germicides are effective. • New stuff includes robotlike devices that can clean a room by dispersing hydrogen peroxide into the air and then detoxifying it. Some hospitals say this can reduce a patient’s chances of


King Features Syndicate

becoming infected with drugresistant bacterial strains of vancomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE), methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and C. difficile by 80 percent.

• Lastly there’s what we call the “all-hands-on-deck” approach, combining the latest technological solutions with standard cleaning. Dr. Mike’s Cleveland Clinic has been a leader in achieving hand hygiene — the single most effective front-line defense against infection in hospitals. The national average for handhygiene compliance in hospitals is less than 50 percent. An extensive education campaign and the addition of hand-hygiene monitors improved the compliance rate at the Cleveland Clinic

to greater than 98 percent. • And that brings us to what you and your husband can do to help protect him while he’s in the hospital. Insist that everyone wash his or her hands with soap and water or alcohol-based hand sanitizer before entering the room — and then before each time there’s personal contact. It doesn’t help to wash hands, pick up dirty dishes or linens and then touch the patient — gotta wash even between touching your handbag (it is the dirtiest place next to the TV remote and your cellphone) and the patient!

Title, legacies on the line It comes down to Game 7 in Miami for Heat, Spurs. MIAMI (AP) — Game 7s do more than settle championships. They define legacies. No matter what happens tonight, LeBron James and the Miami Heat, and Tim Duncan’s San Antonio Spurs have already won NBA titles and secured a place in history. Now is their opportunity to elevate it. The truly memorable teams won the hard way, and that will be the case for the one celebrating at center court this time. It’s either a Heat repeat, possible only after James led them back from what seemed certain elimination in the closing seconds of Game 6, or the Spurs shaking off as gut-wrenching a loss as a team can have to become just the fourth club to win a Game 7 of the NBA Finals on the road. “As a competitor you love it, because you know you have an opportunity and it’s up to you,” Heat guard Ray Allen said. “We have a chance in our building to make something great. All of our legacies are tied to this moment, this game. It’s something our kids will be able to talk about that they were a part of. Forever will remember these moments, so we want to not live and have any regrets.” Allen played in the game the last time

Blackhawks edge Bruins in overtime BOSTON (AP) — The Chicago Blackhawks kept taking the lead until there were no more chances for Boston to come back and tie it. Brent Seabrook’s slap shot beat Tuukka Rask with 9:51 gone in overtime and the Blackhawks beat the Bruins 6-5 on Wednesday night to send the Stanley Cup finals back to Chicago tied at two games apiece. Game 5 of the best-of-seven series will be Saturday night, with Game 6 back in Boston on Monday. Patrick Kane had a goal and an assist for the Blackhawks, who had only scored five goals total in the first three games of the series and hadn’t gotten the puck past Rask in more than 129 minutes coming into Game 4. Bryan Bickell and Michal Rozsival had two assists apiece, and Corey Crawford made 28 saves for Chicago. Patrice Bergeron scored twice, and Zdeno Chara and Jaromir Jagr each had two assists for Boston, which had won 11 of its previous 13 playoff games. Rask made 41 saves but he was screened on the game-winner, which quickly quieted the building where Boston had earned a dominating, 2-0 victory two nights earlier. “One of things we have talked about, get pucks to the net,” said Seabrook, a defenseman who also had the overtime goal in Game 7 of the Western Conference semifinals. “I just tried getting it on net, we had a great screen in front. ... It just found a way.” It was the third overtime game in the finals, but it bore little resemblance to the three tightly contested games that opened the series. The teams combined for five goals in the second period — as many as in Games 2 and 3 combined — as Chicago repeatedly sprinted into the lead only to have Boston come back and tie it. The Blackhawks led 1-0, 4-2 and 5-4, but each time the Bruins evened it up, the last just 55 seconds after Chicago took the lead when Johnny Boychuk slapped it over a sliding Johnny Oduya with 7:46 left in regulation. Boychuk, who had never scored more than five goals in a season, has six in the postseason. The overtime was even until the Bruins failed to clear the zone and the puck got to Seabrook at the right point. What seemed like a harmless shot found the back of the net, and the Blackhawks followed with a subdued celebration at the end of another long night. “Both teams are so great defensively. Both have great goalies,” Seabrook said. “I don’t know; it was one of those games. They got some goals on the power play, we got some bounces. It was nice to get some past Tuukka.”

the NBA’s season went down to the very last day, the Boston Celtics fading at the finish and falling 83-79 to the Los Angeles Lakers in 2010. That made home teams 14-3 in finals Game 7s, with no road team winning since Washington beat Seattle in 1978. Overcoming those odds, not to mention the NBA’s winningest team, would make this more memorable than the Spurs’ previous four titles, though this is a franchise that never dwells too much on the past or looks too far into the future. All that matters is now. “You know what, it’s all about just winning the title. It’s not about situation or what has led up to it,” Duncan said. “It’s a great story for everybody else, but we’re here for one reason, one reason only: It’s to try to win this game (Thursday). We have had a very good season thus far, and I think we just want to get to the game more than anything. We just want to see what happens and be able to leave everything out there.” The teams trudged back to the arena Wednesday, some 12 hours after the Heat pulled out a 103-100 overtime victory in Game 6 to even the series. The Spurs, five points ahead with 28 seconds left in regulation, had to fight off fatigue and heartbreak, insisting neither would linger into tonight. See NBA, Page B3

Golfers battle wind, earn spots in state am Hays’ Herman fires top score; Zuzelski, Beymer, Buxman, Ollarzabal qualify. By BRETT MARSHALL

Brad Nading/Telegram

Both Trey Herman of Hays and Alex Zuzelski of Syracuse have played enough competitive golf at The Golf Club at Southwind and Buffalo Dunes Golf Course to know that you simply expect that the wind will blow. Wednesday was no exception at Southwind, as 35 golfers vied for 14 spots to advance to next month’s Kansas Amateur Match Play Championship at Indian Hills Country Club in Mission Hills. And while Herman and Zuzelski arrived at their scores of even-par 71 (Herman) and 8over-par 79 (Zuzelski), the pair of collegiate golfers accomplished the same goal. They played well enough to qualify and make it to the state’s premier amateur tournament. Herman, a junior-to-be at Fort Hays State University and a former Hays High School standout, was the only player to match par on the windswept, 6,935-yard, layout, thus earning medalist honors. “Honestly, if you come here to play, it’s gonna be tough and you expect the wind,” said Herman, who was three shots in front of Levi Bone of Dodge City and Caleb Haight of Wichita. “I’ve played it (qualifier) the last three years, and so when you sign up, you just prepare to play in the wind.” For Herman, the strategy was simple, but not always easily implemented — hit fairways and greens and putt well. “If you hit greens, you’re gonna score because the greens are so smooth and you can hit the putts true,” Herman said.

Oregon State knocks Indiana out of CWS OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Matt Boyd pitched a four-hitter and struck out 11 and Oregon State made a fourth-inning sacrifice fly stand for a 1-0 victory over Indiana in the College World Series on Wednesday night. The Beavers (52-12) won the first 1-0 game at the CWS since 1985. They now face Mississippi State on Friday needing to beat the Bulldogs twice to reach next week’s finals. The Hoosiers (49-16) went 12 in their first CWS appearance and were shut out for the first time this season. Indiana’s

Aaron Slegers allowed seven hits in his first career complete game. Boyd, who pitched his fourth complete game and third shutout this season, flummoxed the Hoosiers with his mix of fastballs and off-speed pitches. He faced the minimum through four innings. The senior left-hander held the Hoosiers hitless until Michael Basil looped a ball into short right field in the fifth. Basil moved to second on Dustin DeMuth’s bunt single, but no Hoosiers runner advanced farther. The Beavers scored in the

fourth when Kavin Keyes singled, went to third on Ryan Barnes’ double and came home on Jake Rodriguez’s sacrifice fly to right. Boyd earned his first win in five starts since May 10 against Stanford. He had a loss and three no-decisions in between. The Beavers played error-free defense behind Boyd, picked off runners in the first and third innings and turned a double play in the sixth. Boyd, who was drafted in the sixth round by Toronto, took the loss in that game, allowing a run on two hits in an inning of relief

of Andrew Moore. Big Ten champion Indiana was the first team from the conference to make it to the CWS since Michigan in 1984. The Hoosiers were the first from the Big Ten to win a game here since the Wolverines beat Stanford in 1983. But they struggled offensively, particularly against left-handed pitching, after batting .309, averaging 9.4 runs and hitting six home runs in their first five tournament games. The Hoosiers batted .211 and scored a total of six runs in three CWS games.

Golf: Players battle wind, earn spots in state am Nadal seeded No. 5 Continued from Page B1

The Hays golfer made the turn through nine holes at even-par 36 thanks to a birdie on the par-4 first, another at the difficult par-4 seventh and then a chip-in from behind the ninth green. “The birdie at No. 7 was a big turning point,� Herman said. “It’s a tight driving hole with water down the left, and then you have to hit over it and into the wind. I hit 3wood off the tee, had 160 in and hit a knockdown 6-iron to 10 feet and made it. That got me into a good place and was able to turn it around.� Herman did have a bit of an up-and-down back nine, where he birdied the 11th and 13th, bogeyed the 12th and 14th and then played even-par golf into the clubhouse. The pivotal hole was the par-5 15th, notoriously one of the more difficult holes to manage when the wind is blowing out of the south (which it was, 21 to 28 mph and gusting to 30). “I got the driver in play, laid up with a 7-iron and then had a knockdown pitching wedge and two putted,� Herman said of the 15th hole. “From there, the final three holes were downwind, and I knew I was in good shape.� Herman has yet to qualify for match play at the state amateur, which becomes his next goal in late July. For Zuzelski, a lefthander who is heading into his senior year at Baker University, where he plays on the school’s golf team, the 79 was more of a survival than anything, and he was happy to earn one of the qualifying

spots. “I didn’t do as good as I’d like,� said Zuzelski, one of the top high school golfers in southwest Kansas when he graduated from Syracuse in 2010. He followed that with two years at Dodge City Community College, before transferring to Baker, where he competed his junior season. “My game is a work in progress right now,� Zuzelski said. “Definitely, I’ve improved my short game. That’s what saved me today. Like usual, Southwind is tough. Trying to hit shots under pressure with the wind blowing, you’ve just got to have confidence in yourself.� Zuzelski’s nine-hole totals were 41 on the front and a 38 on the back. There were no birdies in his round, and his start was ominous with double bogeys at the first and second holes. “From there, I just tried to keep myself calm and told myself that there were a lot of holes left,� Zuzelski said. “I was able to finish well and am just happy to qualify.� A year ago, Zuzelski reached match play at the state am when it was played at Sand Creek Station in Newton. But he lost to eventual winner Kyle Smell in the first round. Now, Zuzelski’s goal is to not only make match play, but win a match. “Definitely going with a different, more confident attitude than in the past,� Zuzelski said. Other local and area golfers to qualify were Brady Buxman of Ulysses (78) and Juan Ollarzabal Jr. of Garden City (79).

for Wimbledon By STEVE DOUGLAS AP Sports Writer

Brad Nading/Telegram

Juan Ollarzabal, Garden City, putts on The Golf Club at Southwind’s No. 9 Wednesday during a Kansas Golf Association amateur qualifying tournament.

If Rafael Nadal is going to win Wimbledon for a third time, he’ll have to do it the hard way. Fresh from winning his eighth French Open, Nadal is seeded only No. 5 at Wimbledon — setting up the possibility of a quarterfinal match against title contenders Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic or Andy Murray. The All England Club released the seedings Wednesday for this year’s grass-court Grand Slam, which starts Monday. The top five in the ATP rankings remain in their positions: Djokovic at No. 1, followed by Murray, Federer, David Ferrer and Nadal. Nadal slipped down the rankings after being sidelined for about seven months with a left knee injury following his surprise loss to Lukas Rosol in the second round at Wimbledon last year. The Spaniard has won seven of the nine tournaments he has entered in his comeback — including the French Open last month — but he still fell to No. 5 after Roland Garros behind the man he beat in the final — Ferrer. Wimbledon’s seeding order is determined using the ATP rankings and points are added for achievements in grasscourt tournaments in the past 12 months. The All England Club could have moved Nadal up

to No. 4 ahead of Ferrer but decided to stick to the rankings. The women’s seedings follow the WTA rankings, with five-time Wimbledon champion Serena Williams No. 1 and Victoria Azarenka No. 2. Serena’s sister, Venus Williams, withdrew, citing a back injury. While Nadal was losing to then-No. 100 Rosol in one of the biggest upsets in Wimbledon history last year, Ferrer reached the quarterfinals for the first time in 10 attempts before losing in four sets to Murray. Although clay is Ferrer’s best surface, he has twice won the Dutch grass-court title at Rosmalen. However, he lost his first-round match there to Xavier Malisse on Tuesday. Nadal may have to beat all of the world’s top three players if he is to add to his Wimbledon titles in 2008 and ’10, two of his 12 Grand Slam championships. He will find out when the draw is held on Friday. “I’d sign up to be in the quarterfinals against Rafa tomorrow if someone offered me that,� Murray said in his column for the BBC website. “You could say if I get through that match, then the semifinal might not be as tough, but if you want to win the biggest tournaments you have to beat the best players in the world. “It doesn’t really matter where they are in the draw.�

NBA: Title, legacies on the line between Heat, Spurs By far the best game of this series, Game 6 immediately took its place among the best finishes in finals history, with everything from James’ triple-double to Allen’s tying 3-pointer with 5.2 seconds left in regulation.

It had close calls, debatable decisions, and the NBA’s best player at his very best when his team needed him most. Games 2-5 in the series had been ugly, but that one was a beauty. “I think — I know — that game will go down as one of the best finals games that’s been seen,�

Housing Facilities There will be two (2) sixteen (16) unit apartment buildings, and forty-seven (47) lots for duplexes and single family homes. Parking will be provided on site for the apartments and the duplexes and homes will have garages. The apartments, duplexes, and single family homes will have cable and washer and dryer hookups.

Public Facilities Public improvements will include construction of infrastructure improvements located within the boundaries of the District, including street, water, sanitary sewer, and electric improvements. Infrastructure improvements will be constructed concurrently with the project. EXHIBIT E SUMMARY OF THE CONTRACTUAL ASSURANCES BY THE DEVELOPER AND OF THE COMPREHENSIVE FEASIBILTIY ANALYSIS Contractual Assurances The Governing Body of the City of Garden City has entered into a development agreement with Bernard Chappel. This agreement, as supplemented and amended, includes the project construction schedule, a description of projects to be constructed, financial obligations of the developer and financial and administrative support from the City of Garden City.


Feasibility Study The City conducted a study to determine whether the public benefits derived from the rebate would be sufficient to pay for the public improvements to be undertaken in the District. The analysis estimates the property tax revenues that will be generated from the Development, less existing property taxes to determine the revenue stream available to support the costs of the public infrastructure. The estimates indicate that the revenue realized from the project would be adequate to pay the costs of the public infrastructure.
